Six films in all, from 1958 to 1960.  That is how long his career lasted.  As a solo music director I mean.  After this six films, the brothers opted to work as a duo, a combination that lasted his lifetime, creating phenomenal music for more than 250 films.

Remembering Kalyanji on the anniversary of his birth today (30 June).

Originally from Kundrodi in Kutch, Gujarat, the brothers moved to Bombay with their father.  Here, he setup a small general merchant shop.  The duo’s first music teacher was a person who knew next to nothing about music.  He was a tenant, and in lieu of not being able to pay rent, he offered to teach music to the kids.  Not much would have come from this training, but it did sow seeds of a passionate interest in the mind of the brothers.  By the time 1950s came around, these two young men in their early twenties, had set up a musical group named Kalyanji Virji and Party, and started doing musical shows.

Came 1954 and with it came the film ‘Nagin’. The ‘been’ music, played on the instrument ‘clavioline’, took the entire country by storm.  This music, played by Kalyan ji and Ravi, both assistants to Hemant Kumar, established their credentials, in an industry wherein the names of assistant music directors are not even known in most cases.  In fact the ‘been’ music was released on a separate 78 rpm gramophone record (N51432), which carries the names of Kalyanji and Ravi Shankar.

Kalyanji had to wait for four years though, to get his first independent break.  1958 saw the release of ‘Samrat Chandragupt’, and the listeners got to hear the now famous music of “Chaahe Paas Ho Chaahe Door Ho”.  In the three years till 1960, five more films came with music from this talented new comer – ‘Post Box 999’ (“Mere Dil Mein Hai Ik Baat”, “O. . . Neend Na Mujhko Aaye”), ‘Bedard Zamaana Kya Jaane’ (“Naina Hain Jaadu Bhare”, “Kyun Miley Tum Hum, Bewafa O Sanam”, “Door Kahin Tu Chal, Dil Rahaa Hai Machal”), ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Baat’ (“Le Ke Haathon Mein Haath Chalen Saath Saath”, “Ye Samaa Ye Khushi, Bolo Jee Bolo Jee”), ‘O Tera Kya Kehna’ (“Dil Le Ke Jaate Ho Kahaan”, “Majnoo Ke Chhilke Chor Hain Ye Dil Ke”) and ‘Delhi Junction’ (“Naam Tera Leke Mohey Chhede Hai Zamaana”, “Zaalim Zamaane Ne Itna Sataaya Hai”).  Interesting to note that his brother Anandji and the future duo of Laxmikant Pyaarelal were his assistants in these films. These films must be the very first six films that he contracted for.  Then in 1959, he decided to go it together with his brother.  In that year itself, the films ‘Madaari’, ‘Chandrasena’ and ‘Satta Bazaar’ were released, which carried the credit for music director as Kalyanji Anandji.

1960 saw the arrival of ‘Chhalia’.  ‘Himalay Ki God Mein’ came in 1965, followed by ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’ in the same year. The duo had made a place for themselves as a musical force to be reckoned with in the industry.
(PS: Thanks Nitin ji for the corrections.)

This song is another of the lilting memories from the radio listening days.  The video clip shows the song being performed by Nishi, as she is serenading and trying to please Pran, who apparently is very ready and willing to be pleased by a beautiful maiden singing to him.  The film is produced by RL Sharma for the banner of Nigaaristan (India) Films, Bombay, and is directed by Mohammed Husain.  The cast of actors includes Ajeet, Shakeela, Nishi, Maruti, Manorama, Tiwari, Pran, Protima Devi, Murad, Rafiq, Kamal Mohan, Harun, Anwari Bai, Pal Sharma, Jagdish Kanwal, Nadir, Satish, Sadiq, Sarita, Kukku, Rajni, and Khurshid etc.  The six songs are written by PL Santoshi, Prem Dhawan, Farooque Kaiser and Gulshan Bawra.  This song is from the pen of PL Santoshi.  The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar.

The video clip seems to be made from a TV transmission, and from a reel set that is either heavily edited or it is originally damaged.  The video clip is 45 seconds shorter than the audio clip (made from the 78 rpm gramophone record), for the same two antaraa song.

The melody and the instrumentation are both very attractive.  Listening to this song is definitely going to strum the strings of your heart.
Enjoy.

Lyrics

tere mukhde ki dekhi jhalak jab se
tere mukhde ki dekhi jhalak jab se
meri laage
na sainyyaan
palak tab se
meri laage
na sainyyaan
palak tab se
tere mukhde ki dekhi jhalak jab se
meri laage
na sainyyaan
palak tab se
tere mukhde ki dekhi jhalak jab se

pyaar mein tere
jaadu bharaa hai
chain jiya ka loot liya hai
pyaar mein tere
jaadu bharaa hai
chain jiya ka loot liya hai
bolungi tera julm sab se
jaa ke bolungi tera julm sab se
meri laage
na sainyyaan
palak tab se
tere mukhde ki dekhi jhalak jab se
meri laage
na sainyyaan
palak tab se
tere mukhde ki dekhi jhalak jab se

jaam nazar ka
chhalka chhalka
dard hai dil mein
halka halka
jaam nazar ka
chhalka chhalka
dard hai dil mein
halka halka
ho gayin hoon teri balam kab se
main to ho gayin hoon teri balam kab se
meri laage
na sainyyaan
palak tab se
tere mukhde ki dekhi jhalak jab se
meri laage
na sainyyaan
palak tab se
tere mukhde ki dekhi jhalak jab se

तेरे मुखड़े की देखी झलक जब से
तेरे मुखड़े की देखी झलक जब से
मेरी लागे
ना सैंय्यां
पलक तब से
मेरी लागे
ना सैंय्यां
पलक तब से
तेरे मुखड़े की देखी झलक जब से
मेरी लागे
ना सैंय्यां
पलक तब से
तेरे मुखड़े की देखी झलक जब से

प्यार में तेरे
जादू भरा है
चैन जिया का लूट लिया है
प्यार में तेरे
जादू भरा है
चैन जिया का लूट लिया है
बोलूंगी तेरा जुल्म सब से
जा के बोलूंगी तेरा जुल्म सब से
मेरी लागे
ना सैंय्यां
पलक तब से
तेरे मुखड़े की देखी झलक जब से
मेरी लागे
ना सैंय्यां
पलक तब से
तेरे मुखड़े की देखी झलक जब से

जाम नज़र का
छलका छलका
दर्द है दिल में
हल्का हल्का
हो गईं हूँ तेरी बलम कब से
मैं तो हो गईं हूँ तेरी बलम कब से
मेरी लागे
ना सैंय्यां
पलक तब से
तेरे मुखड़े की देखी झलक जब से
मेरी लागे
ना सैंय्यां
पलक तब से
तेरे मुखड़े की देखी झलक जब से

My God!! A long lost resurrected! It must be close on to some 45 years after which I am hearing this song. I used to listen to Radio Ceylon in those years and this was a very popular number. Kudos KA!

Please add “song” after “long lost”. Apologies

Nitin ji,
Thanks for catching the errors. I intended to write ‘Chhalia’ and ‘Himalay Ki God Mein’. I have now made the corrections in the write up above.
