Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 16
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Dil Ka Soona Saaz Taraana Dhoondhega” (‘’Ek Naari Do Roop’, 1973) – a song that has become an everlasting signature memory of its creators.  The singing voice of Rafi Sb that instills a restless, discontented pathos into the words of remorse that follows accomplishments.  The words that are written by Asad Bhopali, touch the theme of an unfulfilled genius.  And the music, it comes from the mind of Ganesh, to whom the sentiments and the theme of this song, fit to the very end.

Remembering music director Ganesh on the anniversary of his passing away (28th March).

The name of Ganesh is associated with an illustrious family of musicians.  Son of Ram Prasad Sharma, and younger brother to Pyaarelal Ram Prasad Sharma (of the Laxmikant Pyaarelal duo).  Besides Pyaarelal, his other brothers have reaped fame for themselves in the film and non-film music arenas.

In the beginning of 1960s, the name of Ganesh came to be acknowledged as the key contributor to the success of the music of Laxmikant Pyaarelal.  The effect of this impression in the industry was so strong that by the mid 1960s, he got about 10 assignments as an independent music director, even before a single film with his music had even got to the studio floors.  In 1966, when the films with his music started to appear in theatres, the audiences were swept with the stunning sounds of “Hum Tere Bin Jee Na Sakenge Sanam” (‘Thakur Jarnail Singh’, 1966), “Hum Jahaan Hain Wo Maqaam Husn Aur Ishq Hai” (‘Husn Aur Ishq’, 1966), “Intzaar Ka Aalam Tanhaai Aur Hum” (‘Shera Daku’, 1966) and more.  1967 was no less with songs like “Zulfon Ka Rangeen Saaya Hai Tauba Khudaaya” and “Main Jo Galey lag Jaaungi Tera Badan Jal Jaayega” from ‘Anjaam’, and in 1968 the audiences were treated to songs like “Raja Aana Hamaare Banlge Pe” and “Main To Khadi Re Khadi Re Aankh Ladi Re Ladi Re” from ‘Sab ka Ustad’.

The ingredients of a genius talent at work were all there.  But then all too soon, the realization descended.  There was materially no significant variation between the music that Laxmikant Pyaarelal were becoming successful with, and the attractive music that Ganesh was creating independently.  The rhythms and melody were all there, but the music of Laxmikant-Pyaarelal came out ahead, being the more prolific and savvy music director as a duo.  The work of Ganesh ended up being confined to about fifteen films over a period of about a decade (1966-1975), with one more outing by him in the 1986 film ‘Dozakh’.

The music of his films like ‘Ek Nannhi Munni Ladki Thi’ (1970), ‘Kahin Aar Kahin Paar’ (1971), ‘Shararat’ (1972),  ‘Chalaak’, ‘Dhamkee’, ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’ and ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ in 1973 is enticing, and each film has a few very memorable songs.  And yet, his work as an independent director did not take off with any sustained amount of success.  And he returned to the anonymity of behind the curtain tasks, continuing to assist Laxmikant-Pyaarelal in their films.

He passed away this day in 2000, at a relatively young age of only 58 years.

I present today another memory tickler from the radio listening days.  The film is ‘Ek Nannhi Munni Ladki Thi’ from 1973.  The words are penned by Asad Bhopali and the alluring rendition is by Asha Bhosle.  On screen, the song is performed by Mumtaz, who was then making a transition from under the shadow of stunt films, and onto the mainstream cinema.  I am not able to identify the gentleman who is being wooed on screen by her.  I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help identify this actor.

A song that has an entertaining attraction coupled with almost sensuous expressions of love, and is performed so well by Mumtaz. Listen and enjoy.

Atul’s note-With this song, the fifth from the movie, “Ek Nanhi Munni Ladki Thhi”(1970) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Lyrics

ye jalte huye lab
ye saanson mein uljhan

mera dil. . .
aaaa tum se
mohabbat karta hai
ha haa haa haa

He must be Surendra Kumar, the hero of the movie. He seem to be clone of Rajesh K.

Like

Yes, hero of the movie was Surendra Kumar, one of the favourites of Ramsay Bros. His most famous film as a hero was ‘Do Gaz Zamin ke Niche’, released in 1972. Imtiaz Khan (Amzad’s brother) played a very important role in that movie & so when Amzad was introduced in ‘Sholay’, he was known as younger brother of Imtiaz!!
