MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…Song No. 18….LAST SONG OF THIS SERIES
—————————————————————————
Today’s song is from film Bewaqoof-60. This is the last song of this series. This series has been very interesting and it gave a pleasure of discussing songs from the 50’s decade. Some of the songs were well known and popular in those times and the most others were good enough to provide nostalgic feelings.

Today’s article happens to be my 400 th article on this Blog. I started writing consistently on this Blog from 1-10-2012. Thanks to ATUL ji’s encouragement and active substantial help in writing Lyrics for me,I was able to reach the figure of 400 articles on songs in 30 months. This is an average of about 13-14 songs every month. During these months,our readers from all over the music loving world gave comments of appreciation,which worked as a motivation for me. In this period,I did 21 series of songs on different Themes. My endeavour has always been to present forgotten pearls from Hindi films and side by side,provide useful,unique information on films, songs, singers, composers, actors, directors, production houses, mythology and behind the scene stories.

In the course of this musical yatra my favourite and memorable articles have been he ones on Abhram Bhagat, Master Vasant, Film Yatrik songs, the series on Migrants and C.Ramchandra’s life story series. I had to stretch myself to an extreme extent to collect data for these series especially and all in general, to collect relevant data, because I would only write that which can be defended with references,if questioned. I tried to ensure that only confirmed, genuine and authentic information was provided in my articles. The main reason was, the credibility of the Blog as a reference site was to be maintained. I could not compromise on that at any cost.

In my endeavour, well wishers like shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, Rajnikumar Pandya ji, Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji, Kamlakar Pasupuleti ji helped me from time to time. There are many helpers, whom my thanks are due.

It has been a great pleasure to me – reaching Deadlines, changing songs at the last minute, changing the entire write up at times and at the same time replying to numerous mails asking for information or pressing for articles (by other Blogs/sites), collecting data from sources, reading books unendingly to get just one reference etc. etc. After finishing a series, the feeling of relaxation is what I enjoyed the most.

I take this opportunity to thank Atul ji, Sudhir ji and many of my friends on this Blog for their cooperation.

1960 was an year which signified few things. At the beginning of the decade, Nehruvian Socialism was the ‘in’ thing. Obviously this had influenced Hindi films too and it was reflected in the topics/themes and handling of the films. At least two major filmmakers- Mehboob and Raj Kapoor – were open advocates of Socialism. Most of their films depicted stories of of poor people, in their own styles. Cities were developing offering employment to village folks and there was a flow of population towards the cities. So, City life became a major topic of discussion in films. The ills of modernisation like crime, murders, alcoholism, Gambling,club culture etc was being shown in films. Importance of Joint families was being stressed and and romantic films were thriving. Old values were being revisited and stressed…of course to no avail !.

This was a decade of good directors. Bimal Roy, Satyajit Ray, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Mehboob, Raj Kapoor, V.Shantaram, Nitin Bose, Guru Dutt etc made superior films. This was also a decade when certain actors were branded- Dilip kumar-Tragedy king, Meena Kumari-Tragedy queen, Durga Khote- Dadi maa, Lalita Pawar- a shrewish mother in law, Leela Mishra- mausi, Baby Nanda- sister, Shaikh Mukhtar- kind hearted Gunda etc. Films had solid contents and strong story lines. Lyricists were a learned lot of top quality. Most were respected names in literature world before joining films, like Hasrat, Majrooh, Shakeel, Rajendra Krishna, Pradeep, Sahir, Shailendra, Bharat Vyas etc. Composers were real knowledgeable musicians like Anil Biswas, Shankar jaikishan, Madan Mohan, Roshan, Vasant Desai, S D Burman, C Ramchandra, Salil Chaudhari, O P Nayyar etc. Among singers ,for half of the decade a mix of old and new singers were available providing a variety of voices to choose from.

A system of appointing a Stunt Director started from Aan-51 onwards. Screen and Film Fare magazine started in this decade. Also magazines like Chitra, Movie world, Shama, Sushama etc came up strongly. Regional movie journals also became popular. Hand painted poster Hoardings and Trailers were popular. Radio Ceylon ruled the waves. Programmes like Binaca Geetmala were the topics of hot discussions in friendly groups and families.

All this was carried forward to the decade of 60s, but more about that decade some other time…may be…

The film Bewaqoof-60 was one of those films films from a period when film makers used to run after Kishore Kumar with rolls of money and roles to offer. Stories were written specially for him. His films rarely had a strong storyline, but Kishore had the ability to carry the entire film on his shoulders alone. Kishore acted in 91 films in his career plus one unreleased film. Half of these films came in the 50s decade itself. Kishore acted in 43 films from 1951 to 1960. This means an average of one film every 3 months for 10 years continuously. Many of his films became popular due to their music.

Bewaqoof-60 also heralded an age in which films were made with titles with adjectives like Aflatoon, Aklamand, Awara( Abdulla), (Banarasi)Thug, Band Master, Bluff master, Budtameez, Chaalbaaz, (Chaar)Darvesh, (Chaar) Chakram, Dada, Dagabaaz, Ganwaar, Jaalsaaz, Jhumroo, Junglee, Laatsaheb, Lutera, Matlabi(Duniya), Mujrim, Mulzim, Naughty Boy, Ziddi etc.

The cast of the film, story etc and all details were already given once along with the song “dekh idhar”on 18-8-2014, so I am not repeating it here. Today’s song is sung by Kishore kumar and Asha Bhonsle, with one line in Manna Dey’s voice slipped in, which was I S Johar’s way to tell the discerning listeners from the not so discerning ones.

The film had 9 songs. Today’s song will be the 7th song on this Blog. Surprisingly, this was the most popular song from this film. The main line of this song was in Italian- Tu Mi Piaci, Cara, which means -I like you, dear! Lucky for me that this song had remained unposted till now.

So far, films which were made in colour like Aan and Jhanak Jhanak paayal Baaje were the only successful colour films. The grand failure of Jhansi ki Rani-53, made in colour by Sohrab Mody, sent cold shivers down the spines of producers and colour films were not much attempted in this decade. There were two major additions to the Film World so far. One was Sound and the other was Color. Sound was accepted almost immediately but colour films took much longer time to get established. In fact colour films were made regularly only from the later part of the 60’s decade. Till then, films were made “partly in colour “, like today’s song.

So, enjoy this colour song video from the film Bewaqoof-1960.

Congratulations and thanks and ……..(no words help me so dots)

May I suggest you to read SHANTARAMA (Marathi) the autobiography of V.Shantaram ?
Also more than 50 duets are rendered by Asha-Lata. Only 28 are on the blog. Can this be a germ for another series? Worth thinking, no?

Always waiting for something new from you,

D Samant

Hearty congratulations, Arunji, for reaching this Brian Lara milestone. 🙂

400 write-ups!!! Wow!!!

Arunji, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have done for this blog and for all of us. You are a treasure for all of us – not just for your posts and comments (wo to hain hi), but for just being here with us.

Needless to mention, your posts are always extremely informative. Like you’ve yourself said above, you like to research your facts. And it shows. As a result, we can always depend on what you write. That raises the credibility of this site manifold, compared to other sources out there.

Also, it is very enjoyable when you share experiences of the time in which the film was released – it gives us a glimpse into a previous era. After all, like you say, a film is a reflection of the times it was made in.

Looking forward to seeing many more write-ups from you. All the very best! 🙂

Raja ji,

I am overwhelmed with your comments.

This is very satisfying that my work is appreciated by the knowledgeables and seniors in this field. ( I am in this since only 3 years.)

With an unique storehouse of songs/lyrics and a variety of articles from you,Sudhir ji,Atul ji,Sadanand ji and many of our other contributors, this Blog should become Unique on the Internet.

I wish that students of old Hindi cinema and Music should treat this Blog as a reference point to acquire authentic,reliable and ‘nowhere else’ type information from here.

Your words are encouragement and motivation for me. Thank you
once again.

Shri Arunkunmar Deshmukh Saheb,
Whenever you have written any articles about film song,you have always
given background,history about film,songs,actors,lyricists and directors, what should I add now? was immensely well informed with all accuracy.
Your painstaking research and thoroughness of accuracy of the matters
being the only one of its kind,unlike anything else.
You have no doubt in a hearty manners appreciated the help and support of film historian Sri Harish Raghuwanshi,Shri Rajnikumar Pandya, Girdharilal Vishwakarma, Kamlakar Pasupuleti and Sudhir Saheb,and others in film journalism,also not forgeting many contributors of this blog like Sadanand Kamath,Nitin Shah,Khyati Bhatt,Avinash Scrapwala and many more.
400 articles! A big volume of a Novel,like Vikram Sheth’s “Suitable Boy”!!
Some day this written film history of yours will help to the “SHAUKHINS”(Fans)and researchers of Hndi film history will be a good reference materials too.
I was personally always irresistibly fascinated to read your articles.
I with my utmost wishful thinking expressing and giving you warmest

Shri Prabhulal Bharadia ji,

You are very generous in your appreciation.
Thanks a million.
It is comments like these,from ‘saat samundar paar’ that confirms that love of music truly has no boundaries.
Your recognition and encouragement work as motivation for me to continue doing this work.
Thanks again.

I saw the post only today. Sorry for the delay in congratulating you for the wonderful work you have done so far. My sincere suggestion is for you to write a book on the history of films. A 5 Volume job covering the history of films from 1931 (ALAM ARA) to 1999. If you are game, I will love to be associated in the project.

Gupta ji,

Thanks for your comments.
I am not thinking of writing any book,at the moment.

-AD

Arun ji, sorry for commenting late. Big Congratulations!!

Each and every article of yours is filled with information, this goes without saying. Each time I read your article, I think that this might be the last one with so much of information. But you surprise every time with new article which is with lots of new information. I wondered like this for long time and now it has become a routine, so to say 😀

Way to go and thanks a ton!!

Aparna ji,
You are very generous in your appreciation.
Thanks for your comments.

Dear Arun ji,
I was away for a month and only returned to India a week back.
Due to hectic itinerary, it was difficult to spend too much time on the internet and I could check my e-mails only cursorily and that too occasionally. Hence, it is only now that while poring over the ASAD posts, I have come to your write-up.
Well, Sir, what can I say about you? Except that for scores of ASAD acolytes like me, you are the last word as far as the knowledge (including but not only confined to music) about the Hindi film industry is concerned. You are like a Lighthouse providing the much needed illumination and sense of direction to the voyagers.
Congratulations on reaching the milestone. We are grateful for your admirable passion, dedication and inexhaustible energy.
Profound regards,
A.B. Lal

Avadh Lal ji,

Thanks for your appreciation.
Your such comments are my treasures and a bundle of encouragement.
Thanks again.
