Missing Films of 1960s – 36
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aisa to hota hi hai. The name of the film sometimes is not so interesting; it seems to automatically convey a B/C grade stunt cum familiar crime and punishment fare. And so we tend to pass over such names in our search of favorites. But as always, unfailingly, it is such films that carry some of the best music that we have heard. Plus, as I realized while checking out this film, the music director is OP Nayyar. The year is 1966, and OPN is quite much in the running as one of the top music directors in the industry. And the film that I am un-packaging on this blog for the first time – it is ‘Love And Murder’.

Sure you will say, with such a name, who would pay attention. Plus the star cast – lead pair is Ramesh Deo and Jaimala. Well, who would pause at this film while browsing the lists. Aah, but we err here. If there is Helen in the cast, and the music is by OPN, one can expect some real good songs with Asha Bhosle singing and Helen doing her moves on the screen. Yes, we need to be more sensitive to such tell tale signs as we look for songs to post. Plus given that this film is available, and all its songs are available online – that sure is an error on our part.

So the film ‘Love And Murder’ makes its debut on our blog today, with this signature Helen dance song. It surely caught my fancy as soon as I heard it, and I have repeated heard it many times over the past two three days. And there is more in this film – the other songs are no less exquisite.

This is a stunt film from the banner of Adarshlok, Bombay, and is directed by Raja Paranjape. Cast of actors includes Prithiviraj Kapoor, Ramesh Deo, Jaimala, Helen, Heeralal, Kammo and Chandrakant Ghokale, amongst others. This list is taken from the Geet Kosh details, and possibly more names can be added. One, maybe, in this song itself. Onscreen we see Helen and Ramesh Deo. Later during the performance, Jaimala makes an entry. There is one more familiar face in this clip; the gentleman who gets up and approaches Jaimala as she enters the scene. Is this the actor Suresh? I am guessing, and I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm or correct my statement.

The film has six songs. Geet Kosh lists names of three songwriters – Shewan Rizvi, SH Behari and Aziz Lucknawi. Of the six songs, two are attributed to Aziz Lucknawi and one each to Shewan Rizvi and SH Behari. Two songs are listed with no name of lyricist attached to it. Today’s song is one of those two songs without an attribution of a songwriter.

OPN + Asha Bhosle + Helen, the combination makes for some very good music and dance performance. This song is no exception. The rhythm and the beats in the song are just superb. OPN shifts between drums for the mukhda and the interludes, and tabla for the antaraas. A typical OPN style that can be seen is some more of his creations.

Enjoy this wholesome debut, wonderful music, and Helen – what more one can ask for. 🙂

Thanks Sir for adding this rare gem of Missing Songs of 60s series. Please correct English lyrics “tu keh do” to “tu keh de”

Thanks Anekant ji,
For catching this sloppy error, typical copy paste error left unchecked. 🙂
I have made the correction now.

Another interesting fact about this film- when the movie was to be released, makers did not disclose the names of the actors & just mentioned that ‘the star cast will be declared on the screen”! There were no pictures of any actors on the posters or advertisements!! Just the name of OP was there, to attract the viewers.

Nayan ji,
Thanks for sharing this very interesting information. Yes, it is true that OPN used to demand and get prominent billing on the film posters and advertisements. There is one more picture; I remember seeing the poster; the only name and photo on that was OPN’s.

Yes, that film was FC Mehra’s Muzrim. Though hero was Shammi Kapoor, OP’s photo was on the posters & hoardings! Not Shammi’s!!!

On 4:10 it is Suresh ,
other movies in which he appeared as far as I know
Satta Bazaar(1959)I remember him in Tumhe yaad hoga kabhi hum mile the song with Vijaya chaudhary)
Adalat(1976)(one of the villain against Amitabh bachchan)
Yasmin(1955 features in Talat Mehmood`s Bechain jigar)
Resham ki dori(1974)
Duniya(1968-as character artiste)
Mere Humsafar(1970-featured in famous truck song Mausam hai baharon ka….)

Dear Prakash ji

Thanks for the confirmation. 🙂

Also, I remember seeing him, (aged) Suresh also in Rajesh Khanna`s Raja Rani(1973) as Naaz`s wayward Husband, who gets lesson from Sharmila Tagore
