Missing Films of 1960s – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As we are moving into the 1960s, exploring for the films that are yet to be showcased on our blog, I have already introduced 4 films from 1961 and then I had moved into 1962, adding 2 films for that year.  But with today’s post, I revert back to 1961. Clearly, there is one more film from 1961 that I missed. The film is ‘Zamaana Badal Gaya’. Its songs are available, and had not yet been introduced here.  An oversight on my part.

The film is listed as a social drama produced under the banner of Hemlata Pictures, Bombay.  It is directed by Jayant Desai.  The cast of actors is interesting – Chand Usmani, Charlie, Iftekhar, Bhagwan, Helen, Naina, Leela Misra, Narbada Shankar, GM Durrani, Madhu, Anand Joshi, Sukumar,  Yunus Yusuf, Ramesh Kumar Verma, Nazeer Khan, Channu Khan, RS Dubey, Gajendra Singh, Agha, S Zaheer Husain, Kishanlal Sharma, TN Sinha, Sukumar, Munshi Sagar Husain.

Now the lead female actor is easily identifiable, that is Chand Usmani.  But I am not sure about the lead male actor.  The name of Bhagwan appears four names down in the list of actors.  Charlie, if it is the same as the one we are familiar with from the earlier decades, then he would be too old for the lead role.  And from what we know about Iftekhar’s career, it is unlikely that he would have played a lead role in 1961.  The remaining names are also unlikely candidates, and some names sound unfamiliar to comment upon.

This song is a duet by Rafi Sb and Asha ji, and seems to be a light romantic song that would most likely be performed on screen by the lead pair.  I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please comment and add more information about this film, its artists, and also about this song.

The lyrics are from the pen of Aziz Qaisi and the music composition is by Iqbal Qureshi. The song is a light exchange between young lovers.  The song starts off with one of them professing caution, considering what the world will say.  And the second half responds with a carefree attitude – let them say.  By the time the song comes to a close, both are of the opinion to just let the world be whatever it says. A quick paced lilting melody which I am sure you will enjoy.

A quick look at the numbers for 1961.  A total of 104 films were certified and released in this year. At the start of this exercise, 92 of these films were already present on our blog, and 12 were awaiting entry.  With today’s post we have now added 5 more films from this year.  The remaining seven films are so far completely untraceable in the public domain.  These films are listed below with names of music directors –

Chatrapati Shivaji

Flight to Assam Nashaad
Howrah Express BN Bali
Mahavat R Sudarshan
Mera Suhag Arun Raghavan
Tanhaai Dileep Dholakia
Teen Ustad Usha Khanna

The information one gets for these films is that no gramophone records were issued.  So these films and their songs are probably treasures that are lost forever.  I hope against hope that this is not so.

Song – Socho Ji Socho Ji Zamaana Kya Kehta Hai (Zamaana Badal Gaya) (1961) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Aziz Qaisi, MD – Iqbal Qureshi
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

रोको रोको
बहकी ये चाल ज़रा

शम्मा को ऐसे ना हाथ लगा
अर्रे दीवाने ज़रा होश में आ
शम्मा को ऐसे ना हाथ लगा
अर्रे दीवाने ज़रा होश में आ
तू ने बुलाया है तो जाने जहां
तेरे दीवाने को होश कहाँ
तू ने बुलाया है तो जाने जहां
तेरे दीवाने को होश कहाँ
होश कहाँ
होश कहाँ
होश कहाँ
होश कहाँ॰ ॰ ॰

छोड़ो जी छोड़ो जी ज़माना क्या कहता है
कहने दो जी
कहने दो जी
कहने से क्या होता है
छोड़ो जी छोड़ो जी ज़माना क्या कहता है
कहने दो जी
कहने दो जी
कहने से क्या होता है
छोड़ो जी छोड़ो जी ज़माना॰ ॰ ॰

Noor Md Charlie had a successful career in pre-partition India from 1925–1946. His shift to Pakistan following partition saw his career going down with less than 12 films. He shifted to the US to live with his son and returned later to Pakistan where he died in 1983.
Regarding the 7 films no records have been baked so no cakes for us.

Lilting song!!
