Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

There are many recipes to make memorable songs.  In my experience, one of them is – a B/C grade stunt film (the more obscure and forgotten, the better), an unfamiliar name of the lyricist, the voice of Rafi Sb, and the music of one of the lesser known music directors.  And voila, you have a fabulous and memorable song.  The song itself may be obscure, unfamiliar and possibly unheard for a long time.  But once you hear it – it is all a ‘wow’.

Iqbal Qureshi may be considered a “lesser known” music director.  But as we have seen time and again and again, his music simply does not cease to surprise, in the manner that – wow, this song is by him?  His portfolio may be limited, as in just about twenty five films (maybe less) and less than two hundred songs created as an independent music director, over a period of the two decades, that of 1960s and 1970s.  But then you look at the body of work and the reaction will be – “Oh Really”.  The portfolio is represented by films like ‘Love In Simla’ (1960), ‘Umar Qaid’ (1961), ‘Banarsi Thug’ (1962), ‘Yeh Dil Kisko Doon’ (1963), ‘Cha Cha Cha’ and ‘Qawwaali Ki Raat’ (1964), ‘Bombay By Nite’ (1976) and the unreleased ‘Pyaar Banaa Afsaana’ (from the 1960s).  Looking at this list of films, the heart wishes that he should have got more opportunities.

Remembering Iqbal Qureshi on the annversary of his passing away today (21st March).

Today, I present a song from a film that is opening its account today, on our blog.  The film is ‘Sarhadi Luteraa’ (1966).  For a very long time, this film was considered as lost, not to appear again.  But appear it did, and is now available with a couple of select individual collectors.  Some of its songs have been put up on YouTube by the diehard fans.  I have been searching for this song for many years.  In between, I got one version, but that was woefully incomplete, with just one antaraa.  But now, finally, the complete song has been uploaded online.

The film is produced under the banner of SMS Productions, Bomaby and is directed by SMS Saagar.  The cast of actors includes Sheikh Mukhtar, Salim, Jagdeep, Sunita, Sham Kumar, Helen, Kundan, Kumud Tripathi, Shahid Bijnori, Khursheed Khan, Johnny Whisky, Meenakshi, Dulari, Madhumati, Jeevankala, Zareena Bano, Anwar Bai, Shakila Bano Bhopali, Aziz Siddiqui, Hafeez Kardar, Ansari, Zippy, Julian, Gulab, Abdul, Maua, Ghani, Ghaffaar, Lala Nazeer etc.  The six songs in this film are all written by MA Taj, a song writer that I am not familiar with.  His name appears on this blog for the first time today.  The music is by Iqbal Qureshi.

The zest and vigor in Rafi Sb’s rendering is peerless.  Rather that, in my opinion, Jagdeep, with all his antics, is not able to do justice to how the song has been rendered.  The lady that he is trying to woo – I request friends and readers to please help to identify the actress.

The word ‘maah-laqaa’ literally means beauty like the moon at its epitome.  It is used to refer to the beloved, as a beautiful lady.

A very pleasing in-the-garden-and-around-the-trees song.  Listen and enjoy.

ke. . .
hansne hasaane ki aadat hai
aa haa

Sudhirji,
This song is picturised in a huge garden Mumbai, Goregaon(E) called OP(Observatory Post) poppularly called as Chhota Kashmir as it can be easily passed off for Kashmir if the photographer avoids the ubiquitous and omnipresent coconut trees. If you have not picturised a song you are no actor..

Nitin ji,

I am sorry to point out that the list of Filmography you have picked from some unreliable source is all mixed up with films of 2 different composers,namely Iqbal and Iqbal qureshi.
Perhaps you may not be even aware of the existence of these 2 differnt composers like many othe common people.
For your information,here is an extract from my article “Same Name Confusions” for your benefit.
I request you earnestly to check the date carefully before posting it on the Blog blindly.


12. MD IQBAL QURESHI AND MD IQBAL

Really, not many of us know that there was a MD called Iqbal,who was not Iqbal Qureshi, MD !

Qadri Building, Irla, Bombay, was a well known address for Taxi and Auto drivers. Here lived the tallest (6′ 4″) Music Director of Bombay once. Apart from Sh. Mukhtar, he was the only tallest person in the industry at one time.

Born and brought up in Aurangabad(Maha.), IQBAL QURESHI shifted to Hyderabad when it was a Nizam state. He established a ” Fine Arts Academy” to promote arts, culture and Music shows. His friends in this were Chandrashekhar, the actor and Lyricist and communist leader makhdoom Mohiuddin.

In Hyderabad, during his schooling itself he learnt classical music from several Ustads. He joined a Govt.dept. as a store keeper. He was transferred to Bombay and came in contact with I.P.T.A. He started giving music to IPTA dramas. Impressed with his tunes, Lekhraj Bhakri offered him his first hindi Film as an MD-Panchayat-58,which was also the debut film for Hari kishan Goswami or Manoj Kumar. Panchayat songs (Ta thayya karte aana) became hit and he AVM called him for Bindiya-60.His best film came from Filmalaya-LOVE IN SHIMLA-1960. It made a tremendous hit and there was no looking back. The films followed were Banarasi Thug-62 and Cha Cha Cha-64.

Even after giving hit songs also, Iqbal Qureshi did not get the number of films he deserved and finally ended up with a tally of only 28 films in his career, with 1 Bhojpuri film too. He never entered the politics nor he went to anyone asking for work. This inevitably ended his career with Lakhpati in 1991.

After Chinese aggression in 62, He had composed a NFS with Mahendra Kapoor,”Chalo sipahi chalo”,which had become quite popular also. He was a very kind person and helped many in their troubles. He died on 21-3-1998 in Bombay.

While Iqbal qureshi’s career spanned between 1958 to 1991, there was another MD by the name of IQBAL (Md. Iqbal),who operated between 1953 to 1975. This Iqbal was known as ” Chhota Iqbal”, probably based on the heights of these two Iqbals.

He started his career with Malika Saloni-53. He gave music to 21 films and 2 unreleased films. His films are-
Malika Saloni-53
Jaadugar-54
Jaasoos-55
Sakhi lutera-55
Anokha Jungle-56
Sipah Salaar-56
Gypsie-57
Chetak aur Rana Pratap-58
Black Mailer-59
hero No. 1- 59
Toofani Teerandaz-59
Wrong Number-59
Diler Haseena-60
Gun Fight-60
Jaalim Jaadugar-60
Night Bird-61
Toofani Tarzan-62
Kaala Jaadu-63
Black Arrow-65
Fauladi Mukka-65
Agent 302-1963
Unreleased….Gypsie-66 and Raajkumar Sooraj-75

Iqbal never compromised on quality singers and used Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Asha, Khan Mastana, Meena Kapoor, Madhubala Zaveri, Mubarak Begum, Mahendra Kapoor, Ismail Azad Qawwal, Talat Mehmood, S.Balbir, Minu Purushottam, Chandbala etc. His songs do not include, possibly, any Lata number.

After films, he composed several Muslim devotionals with Mukesh and few Gazals with Shailendra Singh. His one song from film ” Sipah Salar”-56-a Talat-Asha duet is included by HMV in their Classic range.
With all this, IQBAL remained a small time composer, an action film MD, unlike his Same Name counterpart who bathed in the glory of Hit songs. Iqbal’s only hit film,’Sipah salar’ is also invariably included in Iqbal Qureshi’s filmography, which is injustice to poor IQBAL ! ”

I hope you will be more careful hereafter in posting any data here. We would like to maintain a clean image for this Blog for authentic reporting of facts !
