The runaway success of musical films like ‘Khazaanchi’ (1941), ‘Basant’ (1942), ‘Kismet’ (1943), ‘Tansen’ (1943) and ‘Rattan’ (1944) seem to have attracted, many new music directors to join the Hindi film industry in the 1940s. But only a few of them could climb the ladder of success to reach among the top music directors and elongate their successful musical carrier in the 1950s and beyond. Most of new music directors vanished into thin air after composing songs for very few films.

Today, the 30th of October 2016, is the death anniversary of Vinod Mehra, yesteryear actor.

When Vinod Mehra died in 1990 of a heart attack, at the young age of 45, it came as a shock to many, including myself. He had been a familiar figure in films for the previous two decades, with reasonable success. And at 45, still had plenty to look forward to in his career and life.

The most common milestone in this blog is the blog century milestone. We have so far had 124 of them. This writeup today marks the 125th century of the blog. In other words, this writeup is the 12500th writeup in the blog. This is a nice round figure which happend to be one fourth of 50,000 or one eighth of 1,00,000. 🙂

Our blog centuries are no longer that simple, though. We tend to combine such centuries with some more important milestones/ landmarks. This post is no exception. At the same time, this writeup could well be special because it marks quite a few special milestones, and several of them may come as surprise even to our regulars.

Today I had originally lined up another song from the early 50s, to continue with my discussions on the melodies of the decade, which I called ” Melody Yatra of the 50s ” sometime back. However, I changed my mind and considering the oncoming Deepavali, I am discussing a beautiful song ( both to listen and see) from the film ” RAM RAJYA “-43.
