Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Ik din tumne kahaa thha ji

I am sure you must have heard the names of Music Directors Fakir Muhammed, Shambhoo, Dattaraj, Brij Bhushan, Raj Ratan, Ronodev Mukherjee, Kamalkant and Vishnu Khanna.

No ? I am surprised. OK. At least you must be knowing Music Directors Ajay, Baboo Singh or Vijay Honavar ? Your blank face says, you have never heard their names.

I am not asking you names of Music Directors from the 1930s or 1940s. All these were composers in the 1960s. If I ask you about Satyam, Jagdish or Ratandeep-Hemraj, what will you say ?
These were Music Directors in the 1970s. They composed music for 5 to 15 films each in the 70s.

Can one tell how many composers gave music in Hindi films from 1931 to till today ? It is extremely difficult to make a list of Music Directors. This is because there were many who gave ormusic in just one or two movies. In many cases even the names of the composers are not known. If this is the case of the name itself, getting their Biographies is a distant dream !

Right from 1931 till today, according to one estimate, at least 1000 Music Directors operated in Hindi film industry. Most of these were those who gave music to just one film and disappeared. Still- they all contributed to HFM legacy. Hardly any serious effort seems to have been made to collect information about at least those who gave music to 5 or more films.

To my knowledge,there are two books on Music Directors-
1. Dhunon ki Yatra-Pankaj Raag and
2. Film Sangeetkar-Suvarnayugwale- Prof. Yogesh Yadav

The Pankaj Raag book is a solid 800 pages book costing around 1500/- approx. now. This book gives detailed information on 117 Music Directors and Some information on another 137 Music Directors from 1931 to 2000. The book also mentions names and films of another 200 or so composers who did just 1 or 2 films. Prof. Yadav’s book lists short information about 151 composers. Thus we have about 500 composers with some information to talk about. Still, an equal number remains without any data.

From time to time, some relative of a forgotten MD springs up and gives some information. Sometime back, the daughter of composer/singer K.S.Ragi appeared on Facebook and gave some valuable information on her father. Likewise the son and daughter of composer V.K.Naidu commented on this Blog to give information. Similarly the daughter of Ghantasala came on the Facebook and gave some information on Ghantasala’s Hindi work. Same way the nephew of C. Arjun commented on ‘songs of yore’and clarified some matters.

But this is by Luck. Otherwise many composers are buried under obscurity and anonymity. How many of us have heard the name of Composer Rajhans Kataria ? There was a film “Gandhi Mandir” produced sometime in the last days of the 1940s (probably 1949). It was made by Meera Pictures, produced by Y.D.Shaikh, directed by Roop Sanware and its cast was Nirupa Roy, Pran,Uday Kumar, Ramsingh etc (according to an advertisement copy sent to me by shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji). The music director of this movie was Rajhans Kataria. The name of the film was changed to Afsana(aka Kalakar). This film features in HFGK as an unreleased film. It was not even Censored. However 12 songs were issued on Records by the name “Gandhi mandir” only.

Rajhans Kataria then gave music to 2 more films. “Ek tha Ladka”-51 and “Chhoti Duniya”-53. Then he simply vanished. No information whatsoever is available anywhere on him.

One song from film Chhoti Duniya-53 is already discussed on this Blog. Here is a song from his film Ek tha Ladka-51. It is sung by Shamshad begum and G M Durrani. Lyrics of this song are by Rajesh Kumar.


Song-Ik din tumne kaha thha ji (Ek Thha Ladka)(1951) Shamshad Begam, G M Durrani, Lyrics-Rajesh Kumar, MD-Rajhans Kataria

Lyrics

Ik din tumne kaha thha ji
Hum tumhaare
aur tum humaare
Aur hum tumhaare
ik din tumne kaha thha ji
Hum tumhaare
aur tum humaare
aur hum tumhaare
bhool gaye sab baaten apni
bhool gaye sab baaten apni
Kahaan gaye wo waade tumhaare ji
Waade tumhaare ji
waade tumhare
ik din tumne kaha thha ji
Hum tumhare
aur tum humare
Aur hum tumhaare

Chaandani raaton mein jo
tumne humne
mahel banaaya thha
Jo mahel banaaya thha
Chaand sitaaron se jise
Humne tumne sajaaya thha
Ji haan sajaaya thha
Us din tumne yeh kaha thha
Us din tumne yeh kaha thha
tum ho humari rani
Hum hain raaja tumhaare
Raja tumhaare ji
raaja tumhaare

ik din tumne kaha thha ji
Hum tumhaare
aur tum humaare
Aur hum tumhaare

Wo pyaari pyaari meethi meethi
Baaten kahaan gayin
Baaten kahaan gayin
Wo din sunahre
wo suhaani
Raaten kahaan gayi
Raaten kahaan gayi
Hum to apna ghar chhod aaye thhe
Tere sahaare ji
Tere sahaare ji
tere sahaare
ik din tumne kaha thha ji
Hum tumhaare
aur tum humaare
Aur hum tumhaare

Ab to beetin baaten piya
Yaad na karo o
Yaad na karo
Ab to bhool humaari raaja
maaf bhi karo o
maaf bhi karo
Hum to jiyenge ji
Hum to marenge ji
Saath tumhaare ji
Saath tumhaare
ik din tumne kaha thha ji
Hum tumhaare
aur tum humaare
Aur hum tumhaare

On the YouTube, it is commented that the music of that film was by two MDs. The other MD mentioned is Murari. I had an acquaintance in Goregaon one Murari Sharma, who was a grade I violinist in the Industry and used to talk about given music in two three films. I wonder am I talking about the same person? Atul-ji, Arun-ji, Sudheer-ji …….please enlighten me and make me ‘Buddha’ (meaning ‘one who knows’)

Bharat ji,
It is true. HFGK also mentions these two names. However the details given under the video are for this particular song and NOT for the film. Rajhans had composed 3 songs and Murari had composed 7 songs.
Hope the matter is clear now.
-AD

Yes, the other music director of this movie is Murari Sharma and you had commented about him in the other song from this movie (composed by Murari Sharma).

Hi Atulsince your information is now copyright  material if I forward a part of it with your name as an author or compiler would that be ok with you? Thanks Bharat

Have counted 2088 music directors so far (1931-2015)..

WOW! 2088 MDs and still counting…
