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

Ham deewaane tere dar se nahin talne waale

Today, with this post, we arrive at the 12,100th post on this blog. That’s 121 centuries that this blog has clocked so far. The mind continues to boggle.

As a person who’s seen this blog from day one (from the time “mile na phool” was posted as the very first song on this blog), I feel elated everytime we reach a milestone. I still remember when Atul posted the 100th and then 200th and so on. Each one was an occasion for celebration. Because each one was a marker of progress on a journey that we knew would be a long (and highly enjoyable) one. We have done that 121 times now – and I think I speak for many of us when I say, ye dil maange more. :-).

But as I always say when I talk about a numerical milestone, it’s NOT just about the number. If it was only about numbers, we could have easily done a quick job, churning out posts in a matter of a few minutes. All we would have to do is write a few lines, copy lyrics from some other site – and we’d be done.

I can assure you, if we had done that, we would have been an “also-ran” site, not the go-to site that we have become over the years. We would have carried the same mistakes we find elsewhere. We wouldn’t have had so many connoisseurs of old Hindi cinema visiting our blog to read our posts and share their knowledge. The community grows by the day.

Increasingly, this blog is where people come together to discover and enjoy Hindi film music as a community. It is like an online “nukkad mein chai ki dukaan”. 🙂 You have the regulars who land up everyday, they have a chai (song) served by Atul, they discuss the song – there is bonhomie all around. Every day you get taazi chai. 🙂 But there are also others who join in, like at that nukkad dukaan. Everybody is welcome – the more the merrier.

So while it gives us great satisfaction to hit milestones, it is the journey that is just as important and enjoyable than the milestone itself.

And we must always remember that every song is compiled with great care. I always say, in a cricket game, you can hit a 4 or a 6, and your score jumps. Here, on the blog, there are no shortcuts. Every song adds just one to the counter. And I think, that’s a good thing. Tea is best savoured, sip by sip. Tabhi zaike ka mazaa aata hai. One should never rush good things in life. 🙂

Ok, now onto the post for today.

In my last post, I had talked about Naqli Nawab (1962) at length. It is a film I happened to see recently – and liked a lot. I have mentioned the reasons in that post and will not repeat them here.

I also mentioned that of the 7 songs in the film, 4 had been posted earlier by Atul, so there were 3 remaining to be posted. That post contained the first of these 3.

This song is the second in the trilogy.

I must admit when you use the word “trilogy”, it looks like you’re onto something big. 🙂 Film-makers, especially in Hollywood, are very much into this. Maybe it took off in a big way with The Godfather, which (the first part at least) was the mother of all hits in its time. It was made as a trilogy. Then we had the Jaws trilogy (the original was followed by the trilogy, so there were 4 films in all) – another huge hit. Then the Star Wars trilogy (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi). And many others, I am sure.

More recently, we had the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. And the Matrix trilogy.

In India too, not to be outdone, we have have Dhoom, Dhoom 2 and Dhoom 3 in recent times. From an earlier era, one hears of the Raj Khosla thriller trilogy (Woh Kaun Thi, Mera Saaya and Anita, all starring Sadhana) though I’m not sure the director quite marketed it that way.

Even the author Amish has a Shiva trilogy.

Since I don’t have the aukaat to make even one film or write even one book, let alone a trilogy, I have to take pride in smaller pleasures. 🙂 Like writing 3 blogposts in a row of the same film’s songs and calling it a trilogy. 🙂

Anyway, trilogy or no trilogy, one of my goals after seeing Naqli Nawab was to YIPPEEE it at the earliest. In other words, to cover the remaining songs of the film on this blog so that the film could be marked as completed here.

The song for today is a fabulous qawwali. I absolutely love qawwalis – there’s hardly a qawwali out there that I have not liked. Just the rhythmic clapping and music is wonderful in itself. And then you have the lyrics, which are usually also fun. Often loaded, with some mocking or hidden meaning.

As I was writing down the lyrics of today’s qawwali, I kept falling more and more in love with it. Usually you replay to catch a word or line you missed. Today I did that, of course – but also kept replaying just to keep listening to the song. As I listened, I just marveled at the composition – and this is from a composer, Babul, who I know nothing about. Bahut na-insaafi hai.

The occasion for the qawwali is a celebration at Eid. Gifts are being given by the Nawab, KN Singh to others. Everyone is having a wonderful time. Love is in the air, as is evidenced by Manoj Kumar and Shakila.

But there is also something sinister beginning to brew. We see Indira Billi (and Kamal Kapoor) in this qawaali, singing to KN Singh “hum deewane ter dar de nahin talne waale” and “saamne baithe hain taqdeer badalne waale”. They are there to stake a claim on KN Singh. Indira wants him to acknowledge and accept her as his wife – she is supported by Kamal Kapoor, her brother, in this effort. The Nawab has no intention whatsoever of obliging them. So Indira intends to stay put.

This is also a song where one can see Edwina. She is a familiar face in many films of the late 50s upto the mid/late-60s, usually seen in dance sequences like “o haseena zulfon waali”, “sooku sooku” and “duniya paagal hai”. She is a friend for some of us who got to know her just a few years ago , thanks to memsaab (Greta). In this song, she has an uncharacteristic role in the support team of Shakila, singing the qawwali.

A word of mention for the person who has uploaded this video to youtube.

His youtube handle is Tommydan22 (the number keeps changing but the essence is Tommydan…). He is an American who, much like memsaab, is also a keen lover of old Indian cinema. But his interest (and skillset) also extends to reviving videos of old Hindi films and songs (we know what condition many of these videos are in!). He does it as a hobby. You will find a lot of his videos on youtube (check out his channels) – you can be assured his video will be the cleanest, clearest and most viewable. Often with subtitles, for those who don’t understand Hindi. It takes a lot of effort to do this, frame by frame – and we must appreciate his work.

So many people, in their own ways, are doing so much voluntarily to preserve and popularize old Indian cinema – it makes me feel humble to be part of this community. Sometimes I think, this is the only way old Indian cinema will survive.

I will leave you with these thoughts – and this wonderful qawwali. Lyrics are by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan.

Congratulations Atul ji, Raja ji and the rest of us Atulites on this milestone. True that Raja ji.. milestones are but just numbers. For team YIPPEEEE!! its a motivation to look at these numbers, esp the YIPPEEEE!! movie count :). I started this blog with Mile Na Phool too (though much after the blog was started), and it has been one of the best journies.

Greetings and Congratulations to all Atulites. 121, wow. Long innings of centuries.

Thanks Raja ji, for this wonderful qawwaali, and the thoughtful post.

Atul ji,
Correct me in case I am wrong, but I think this may have been the slowest century – at 59 days. We had crossed the 12000 mark on 20th April.

Phir bhi, sab durust hai. . . 🙂

Thanks

And Raja ji,

Thanks for introducing Tommydan here on the blog. I have been in intermittent communication with him, after having been introduced by you a while back.

Yes, whenever I am searching for a movie, I first check his channel. He makes tremendous effort to clean and improve quality of the original VHS prints.

Sudhir

Can somebody identify the person at 4:42? His face looks familiar – I think I’ve seen him in other qawwalis too. Is he the same person who sings (starts with) “aaj kyon humse parda hai” in Sadhna (1958)? Both these faces look familiar, was just wondering if it’s the same face.

Raja ji,

Thanks for an eminently interesting and readable post on this occasion.
I like the way you write…just like as if you are speaking your mind to someone.
True that Numbers do matter, but what matters more is how you achieved them…by copying others or by studying hard yourself ?

I think, the kind of efforts, research,reading, counter checking and ensuring credibility of what is presented here, that goes behind every post on this Blog, is what makes this Blog an Unique visiting pace. People are confident that what they get here will be pure Gold.

Thanks to Atul ji and others who have stuck to this methodolgy of postings.
I am happy that I am associated with this venture and wish it more landmarks in future.

-AD
