Missing Films of 1960s – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Let me explain the title and the intent of this new series.  This series is an outcome of the project that our dear Katie Ben from ‘saat samundar paar se’ has undertaken, after she got hold of the Geet Kosh volumes.  She zeroed in on volume 4, and she set about identifying all the films of the 1960s, that have yet to find a representation on the blog.  Specifically, the period covered is 1961 to 1970.  So she has very zealously pored through the fourth volume, page by page, film by film, and simultaneously kept on checking with the data on the blog.  The outcome of her effort is summarized as follows.

From 1961 to 1970, a total of 942 Hindi films are listed in the Geet Kosh, as having been censored and released.  In addition, the Geet Kosh also lists 31 films that were launched but were not completed or not released. Most of these films also have songs listed, and for many of these songs, the 78 rpm records were issued.  Then there is another category which is the films in regional dialects like Bhojpuri, Maithili etc.  There are 34 films belonging to this category listed in the Geet Kosh.  That makes for a total of 1007 films to be accounted for in that decade.

Coming to what we have.  As per Katie Ben’s analysis, we now have 710 films from this decade represented on the blog.  That leaves out 297 films that we still need to bring in to our collection on this blog.  Wo, that is almost 30% of the total that we still need to track and post.  Through this series, I am going to make efforts to cover as much of the balance as possible.  The task is going to be arduous, as it is always the remaining balance that is the toughest nut to crack.  What is known, available, familiar – that is already on the blog.  The balance that we are trying to deal with is in the arena of obscure, not easily available, and yes – unfamiliar, very very unfamiliar.

When Katie Ben shared a while ago that she has started this analysis, I was also encouraged, to start tracking the songs of the missing films of 1960s that she is analyzing. And so, over the past few months, I have been focusing of gathering songs of the films from this period.  Accessing various sources, as in collector friends around the world, I have acquired as nearly a complete compilation of 1960s songs, as is physically track-able at this time.  I do not say that the compilation is 100%.  The process is still continuing.  Later in the series, I will present some numbers indicating how much collection we now have access to.

I open this series with a song from the 1961 film ‘Muraad’.  An obscure and unfamiliar film, about which I am not able to locate any information on line.  As per Geet Kosh, this film is produced under the banner of NKG Productions, Bombay and is directed by Nari Ghadiyali.  Six song are listed for this film.  Interesting thing is that the songwriter and music director are the same person.  The name is Hanuman Prasad Triloki – a name that is new to this blog.  As I tried to scan the Geet Kosh, I am not able to locate any other film in which this name appears as songwriter or music director.  There is one Hanuman Prasad who appears as music director, but that name appears in the period from 1942 to 1952.  That name is Hanuman Prasad Sharma, the music director who is known for giving Geeta Dutt her first break in Hindi film songs.

The cast of actors listed for this film Includes Chitra, Master Rajdeep, Asgar, Kumar Junior, Devraj, Heera Sawant, Majnu, Amrit Rana, Sarnasi, George, Robin, Albert, Benjamin Jo Abraham, Lambu, Baijnath, Kailash, Azeez, Neena, Mehmood (Rampuri), Rafia, Asmat, Zeenat, Fatma D’souza, Qabban Mirza, and Nazneen etc.  Practically all names are unfamiliar (for me), except for three or four, including ‘Chitra’ of course.

The singing voice is Suman Kalyanpur. And the song, it is simply a wow.  Such a lilting flow.  The play on the melody so captures the attention, one wants to continue listening to it.  Listening to this song, one is reminded of at least two other songs which sound very similar.  The first one is “Tum Jahaan Jaaoge Mujhko Bhi Wahin Paaoge” from the 1965 film ‘Chor Darwaaza’.  And the second one is from another film also from 1965 – ‘Aarzoo’; the song being “Aji Rooth Kar Ab Kahaan Jaaiyega“.  Both these songs repeat the idea of “jahaan jaaiyega hamen paaiyega” from this song from 1961.  ‘Inspired’ or ‘poetic license’ – you may decide.

And so, kicking off this series with this melodious number.  As we progress, I am sure we are in for a few surprises, and some very attractive songs, that have either been lost for decades, or some even not heard before.  This one is going to be an interesting trip down the darkened side alleys of the melody’s memory lane.  Enjoy.

Song – Nigaahon Se Chhup Kar Kahaan Jaaiyega (Muraad) (1961) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Hanuman Prasad Triloki, MD – Hanuman Prasad Triloki

Lyrics

nigaahon se chhup kar
nigaahon se bach kar kahaan jaaiyega
jahaan jaaiyega wahaan
hamen paaiyega
bas hamen paaiyega
nigaahon se chhup kar kahaan jaaiyega

machalta hua dil
dabaana bura hai
machalta hua dil
dabaana bura hai
chhup ke se teer
chalaana bura hai
ae ji chhup ke se teer
chalaana bura hai
hum pe julm kar
haan. . . aan
hum pe sitam kar kahaan jaaiyega
hum pe julm kar kahaan jaaiyega

aashiq ho to naa marne se darna
aashiq ho to naa marne se darna
chhupe gham ke aansoo na
aankhon mein bharna
ae ji chhupe gham ke aansoo na
aankhon mein bharna
zamaane se chhup kar
haan. . . aan
marne se dar kar kahaan jaaiyega
zamaane se chhup kar kahaan jaaiyega

muhabbat ki raahen
badi mushkil hain
muhabbat ki raahen
badi mushkil hain
samajhna isey khel
badaa bachpan hai
ae ji samajhna isey khel
badaa bachpan hai
hum se akad kar
haan. . . aan
hum se bigad kar kahaan jaaiyega
hum se akad kar kahaan jaaiyega
jahaan jaaiyega wahaan
hamen paaiyega
bas hamen paaiyega
nigaahon se chhup kar kahaan jaaiyega

———————————————————-

निगाहों से छुप कर
निगाहों से बच कर कहाँ जाइएगा
जहां जाइएगा वहाँ
हमें पाइएगा
बस हमें पाइएगा
निगाहों से छुप कर कहाँ जाइएगा

मचलता हुआ दिल
दबाना बुरा है
मचलता हुआ दिल
दबाना बुरा है
छुपके से तीर
चलाना बुरा है
ए जी छुपके से तीर
चलाना बुरा है
हमपे जुल्म कर
हाँ॰ ॰ ॰ आँ
हमपे सितम कर कहाँ जाइएगा
हमपे जुल्म कर कहाँ जाइएगा

आशिक हो तो ना मरने से डरना
आशिक हो तो ना मरने से डरना
छुपे ग़म के आँसू ना
आँखों में भरना
जमाने से छुप कर
हाँ॰ ॰ ॰ आँ
मरने से डर कर कहाँ जाइएगा
जमाने से छुप कर कहाँ जाइएगा

मुहब्बत की राहें
बड़ी मुश्किल हैं
मुहब्बत की राहें
बड़ी मुश्किल हैं
समझना इसे खेल
बड़ा बचपन है
समझना इसे खेल
बड़ा बचपन है
हमसे अकड़ कर
हाँ॰ ॰ ॰ आँ
हमसे बिगड़ कर कहाँ जाइएगा
हमसे अकड़ कर कहाँ जाइएगा
जहां जाइएगा वहाँ
हमें पाइएगा
बस हमें पाइएगा
निगाहों से छुप कर कहाँ जाइएगा

Sudhir ji,

The mukhda of the song is taken from the second she’r of Jigar Muradabadi’s ghazal:

jo ab bhi na takleef farmaayiyega
to bas haath malte hi rah jaayiyega

nighaaon se chhup kar kahaan jaayiyega
jahaan jaayiyega hamen paayiyega

Film industry ne Hanumanji ko triloki hone ke baavzud, ek hi baar prasad deke apni murad puri karni padi!!!

Sudhir ji,

Looks like that Hanuman prashad Sharma and Hanuman Prasad Triloki are the same persons.
Hanuman prasad Sharma was not only a Music Director, but he was also an expert Dance master. After film Usha kiran-1952 (with composer Manohar), he stopped giving music and turned to his other expertise- Dancing. he opened a Dancing School in Bombay and in the later part of the 50s, he also became a devotee of Sai Baba. There used to be big Poojas and Bhajans of Sai Baba in his Dance school.
Probably,during this period he took the surname Triloki ( which is also a Brahmin surname). In 1961, according to an entry in the book “Dhunon ki yatra” by Pankaj Raag, he gave music to Murad-61.

This information about his Dance school and Sai Baba Pooja etc,is based on the Pankaj raag book and also Yogendra yadav’s book-Film sangeetkar,Suvarn yug wale.

Sudhirbhai,

I was sure and confident about your passion of taking challenges 😉 at least in this field of HFM. As you have said, making this list of all “URF on ASAD – Un Released Films on Atul Song A Day” was not easy but the amount of work you are doing starting from receiving my email, reading it in depth, saving it for future refrence, checking available songs of these URF from your personal collection, contacting your friends from your HFMLC – Hindi Film Music Lovers Circle, converting those songs into digital, uploading them on YT, writing the post and then sharing it with all of us…. wow!!! ab bolo, who is doing the monumental work to give all HFM lovers around the globe the joy of it. Hats off to you.
Thanks for starting this new series. Already making the list of URF on ASAD of 70s.. Just kidding. Aapko bahut HW dediya hai to thoda vishram bhi doongi. 😆
ASAD ke hazaaron chaahakon ki “Muraad” puri karne ke liye koti koti dhanyavaad. 🙂

Love and regards
Khyati
