Missing Films of 1960s – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

So far in this series, we have added four new films to the blog.  As per the analysis done by Khyati Ben, 104 films were produced in the year 1961.  Of these, 12 films were not yet represented here.  The four films that I have been able to track down and add here are – ‘Muraad’, ‘Room No. 17’, ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ and ‘State Express’.

The remaining eight films not yet trackable, are

  1. Chatrapati Shivaji
  2. Flight to Assam
  3. Howrah Express
  4. Mahavat
  5. Mera Suhag
  6. Tanhai
  7. Teen Ustad
  8. Zamana Badal Gaya

Arun ji has added some comments to for some of these films.

  • ‘Chhatrapati Shivaji’ is a film from the Children’s Film Society of India (CFSI). It is not yet trackable or available. I even went to the local Delhi office of CFSI. Even they were not able to tell me any status of this film.
  • The two films ‘Mahavat’ and ‘Mera Suhag’, are Tamil films originally, and have been dubbed into Hindi. Arun ji’s considered opinion is that no records were issued for these two. So unless the films themselves appear, we may not get to see or hear the songs.

I also checked with Zafar Bhai.  The films ‘Flight To Assam’ and ‘Howrah Express’ are ‘C’ grade cinema, about which not much information is available.  As per his explorations, no gramophone records were issued for these two films. And hence, the songs are not available, unless the films themselves materialize.

Regarding the remaining three films – ‘Tanhaai’, ‘Teen Ustad’ and ‘Zamaana Badal Gaya’, Zafar Bhai is still trying to explore some more. Once again, these films also are very rare. He is trying to ascertain whether gramophone records were issued for these films.  So we wait till he responds for these three films.

Having covered the list of films from 1961, I now move on to the year 1962.

As per the Geet Kosh, 93 Hindi films were produced in the year 1962.  As I take a look at the analysis that Khyati Ben has done – well, we now get into some interesting situation.  Of the 93 films in this year, almost one third, i.e. 32 films, are not yet on the blog.  That is interesting, as we now have comparatively much larger task to address.

Alphabetically, the first film in this list of 32 is ‘Alha Udal’, with music by Jamaal Sen.  So far, none of its songs are traceable.  I checked with both Zafar Bhai as well as Girdhari Lal ji.  Apparently no records are available for this film.  I would like to add one thing at this juncture.  When I say that I checked with Girdhari Lal ji and with Zafar Bhai, it is also implicit that I have checked the online library of Hindi film songs that has been setup by Surjit Singh ji. No songs so far traceable for this film.

Ah but, the next film is a different story.  This is the film ‘Baaje Ghunghroo’, and I do have some songs available for this film. Today, I bring one of them online.  An absolute gem of a song, that has been sitting in the by lanes, collecting dust over the years. One hear, and I am sure you will also be perplexed why this song did not see light of the day so far.

The film is a social drama from the banner of Ram Raj Films, Bombay and is directed by Shivraj Shrivastav.  The main cast of  actors includes Manhar Desai, Nalini Chonkar, Sheela Kashmiri, Leela Misra, Manju, Jagdish Kanwal, Nazir Kashmiri, Jugal Kishore, Keshri, Baby Farida, Baby Kokila, BA, Khan and others.

There are 8 songs in this film written by three songwriters – Shivrah Shrivastav himself, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and Madan Mohan.  This song is written by Madan Mohan. I request other friends and readers to kindly comment and verify whether this Madan Mohan is the same person as the music director Madan Mohan, or is he different individual.

Music and the melody is simply belonging to the top grade. Music director is Dhaniram – another very talented composer, for whom even the epithet – “relegated to B/C grade cinema” is just not suitable.  For he did not get even a reasonable opportunity to work in B/C grade films. In a career that spans two decades from 1948 to 1967, Geet Kosh lists just twelve films for which he had composed music.  His first film was ‘Papiha Re’ in 1948, and the last film is ‘Awaara Ladki’ from 1967.

The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.  Listen, and wonder again – “kahaan tha ye gaana ab tak”.

Song – Saari Raat Jaagi Lagan Aisi Laagi Re (Baaje Ghunghroo) (1962) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Madan Mohan, MD – Dhaniram

Lyrics

saari raat jaagi
lagan aisi laagi re
saari raat jaagi
lagan aisi laagi re
haaye tu na jaane
ho anadi balma
ho anadi balma

saari raat jaagi
lagan aisi laagi re
saari raat jaagi
lagan aisi laagi re
haaye tu na jaane ho anadi
anadi balma
ho anadi balma

din to guzaaroon
raat na guzre
main tadpoon le le naam re
tujh se preet lagaa ke rasiya
naahak hui badnaam re
main saari raat ghabraaun
chain na paaun
tadap reh jaaun
ho anadi
anadi balma
ho anadi balma
saari raat jaagi
lagan aisi laagi re
saari raat jaagi
lagan aisi laagi re
haaye tu na jaane ho anadi
anadi balma
ho anadi balma

dil nahin maane
laakh bahaane
aaun piya tere paas re
tu bedardi dard na jaane
tujh bin rahun main udaas re
is mann ko laakh samjhaaun
na kaabu paaun
tadap reh jaaun
ho anadi
anadi balma
ho anadi balma
saari raat jaagi
lagan aisi laagi re
saari raat jaagi
lagan aisi laagi re
haaye tu na jaane ho anadi
anadi balma
ho anadi balma

सारी रात जागी
लगन ऐसी लागि रे
सारी रात जागी
लगन ऐसी लागि रे
हाए तू ना जाने
हो अनाड़ी बलमा
हो अनाड़ी बलमा

सारी रात जागी
लगन ऐसी लागि रे
सारी रात जागी
लगन ऐसी लागि रे
हाए तू ना जाने
हो अनाड़ी बलमा
हो अनाड़ी बलमा

दिन तो गुज़ारूँ
रात ना गुज़रे
मैं तड़पूँ ले ले नाम रे
तुझ से प्रीत लगा के रसिया
नाहक हुई बदनाम रे
मैं सारी रात घबराऊँ
चैन ना पाऊँ
तड़प रह जाऊँ
हो अनाड़ी
अनाड़ी बलमा
हो अनाड़ी बलमा
सारी रात जागी
लगन ऐसी लागि रे
सारी रात जागी
लगन ऐसी लागि रे
हाए तू ना जाने
हो अनाड़ी बलमा
हो अनाड़ी बलमा

दिल नहीं माने
लाख बहाने
आऊँ पिया तेरे पास रे
तू बेदर्दी दर्द ना जाने
तुझ बिन रहूँ मैं उदास रे
इस मन को लाख समझाऊँ
ना काबू पाऊँ
तड़प रह जाऊँ
हो अनाड़ी
अनाड़ी बलमा
हो अनाड़ी बलमा
सारी रात जागी
लगन ऐसी लागि रे
सारी रात जागी
लगन ऐसी लागि रे
हाए तू ना जाने
हो अनाड़ी बलमा
हो अनाड़ी बलमा

I was very young, but I had seen/ remember/ heard about several of these films! Some faint memories- (Please correct me , if I am wrong).
Howrah Express was made by Ram Bohra & 2 reels of this B & W movie were in Eastman Colour, which was new, as most of the films, at that time, used to be in Techni Colour (Big Budget) or Geva Colour (Low Budget). So I was surprised, at that time, that why so much money for Eastman Colour was spend for this C grade movie?
Kismat Palat ke Dekh was originally, titled as Jara Palat ke Dekh.
I think Jayshree’s (Rajashree’s Mom) last film was Ramlila. She played Sita in it.
Shola jo Bhadke, as I had mentioned earlier, was produced by Shanker Dada Palav, brother of Bhagwan Dada. It was an enjoyable film.
Hawa Mahal & Jadugar Daku, both were C grade movies, which I had seen at Edward Cinema of Mumbai. Hawa Mahal, I remember for good comedy of Babu Raje. Ulhaas was main villain of Jadugar Daku.
Did Pyar ki Jeet has Kalpana as heroine, opposite Mahipal? It was actually, I think, her first film, but she became famous with Professor & Naughty Boy.
I had also seen Sher Khan & Toofani Tarzan.
But now about 53 years have been passed, I don’t remember much about these movies!

Nayan ji,

You are right. Pyar ki Jeet-62 was the first film of actress Kalpana. Mahipal indeed was her Hero in it.
Isak Mujawar,film Historian,in one of his books mentioned how Kalpana begged of him not to reveal that Professor was not her FIRST film and that Mahipal was her first Hero in Pyar ki jeet.
Kalpana was promoted as “introducing”in film Professor, which was not correct actually.

Nayanji,
I must say you have good memory. It was fun to see movies in theatres situated in Patli Gali/ Foras Road/Shuklaji Street. I myself have seen couple of them alongwith bhaiyas and taporis whistling away in gay abandon whenever some sexy dialogues were uttered. Some would stand up as if they could see deeper down the cleavages!!! Well those were the days; never to return back.
Most of them are still standing tall fighting redevelopment.

The theatres in Grant Road (East)>>Royal, New Edward, New Roshan, Nishat, Gulshan, Alfred and few more

Hello Sudhirbhai,
Out of 32 movies not yet introduced on the blog, Atulji and yourself already have done “justice” to two –
Baanke Saanwariya – (March 30, 2015)

Maaya Jaal – (June 22, 2015)

Khyati
