Blog Day : 3877 Post No. : 14900

I began “Blog Ten year challenge (2009-2019)” early this year. As many as ten songs are covered in this series so far. Three other regulars (viz M/s Avinash Scrapwala, Sadanand Kamath and Sudhir Ji) have also chipped in with their articles in this series. In this series, we cover a song from a movie whose song (some other song obviously) was covered in the blog ten years ago on the same day.

There were days when no movies were eligible for “Blog Ten year challenge (2009-2019)” because all the songs covered on that day ten years ago had been YIPPEED by now.

I also noticed that those days in 2009 saw as many as six or seven songs being covered daily. That is in such sharp contrast to the present scene in 2019 where we are barely averaging one song daily thus finally living up to the blog name of “song a day”. 🙂

It basically tells us that a lot of things change in ten years. I was ten years younger in 2009. The blog too was just a few months old and I had a kind of passion and motivation for the blog that I now find impossible to summon for myself.

In one’s younger days, one is not as much in control of one’s life (professional as well as personal) as one becomes later in life. With time, one rises up the ladder in profession life. Simultaneously, ones kids also grow up.

In short, one feels far less in control of one’s life in one’s younger days. Still, that is compensated by youthful energy, passion and motivation. With time, one gains control of one’s life but begins to lose on the gifts of youthful energy, passion and motivation. 🙂

Despite being less in control of my life, I still had time and energy for online activities (which was something new those days). After spending nearly four years in various cricket forums (2004-2008), I began to try my hand in blogging in 2008. This blog was my second blog. My first blog was also related to HFM and associated topics and the articles in that blog were quite exhaustive and time consuming to write. If that blog was like test match, then this song blog was like ODI. 🙂 Much easier and less time consuming. 🙂

Just like ODI is more popular than test cricket, the song blog became popular whereas the other original blog fell by the way side. I posted fifty articles in that blog and then totally stopped updating that. That blog is now lying neglected, with the last post appearing nearly ten years ago in august 2009.

I found posting in the song blog a breeze, that is why I was able to cover six to seven songs everyday in the blog.

That was then ! Today, ten years later, even posting one song a day seems like too much work. Curiously, I had far more workload on me in professional and personal fronts ten years ago. Today I am almost in full control on both fronts. Still my present blog post productivity has taken a major hit. 🙂

There are reasons for that, of course. One reason could be that I posted with an uncluttered mind, like how Sehwag used to bat with an uncluttered mind. In fact, I recall Raja commenting those days that the blog centuries were coming at Sehwag like rate (viz in 14 to 15 days). 🙂

Another cricket concept that we have in the blog is dot day, like how there are dot balls in cricket. The blog more or less lived upto its aim of posting songs everyday come rain or shine, festivals or holidays. But still there are unavaoidable circumstances due to which there have been no posts on certain days. We call those days as dot days for the blog.

When I look at the dot days in the blog, I find that the year 2008 (when this blog began), there were three dot days, viz. 22 sep, 23 sep and 25 september. 2009, the first full year for the blog had as many as 25 dot days. Year 2010 saw a whopping 61 dot days. Year 2011 had 36 dot days.

Situation “improved” in 2012 with only 5 dot days whereas 2013 saw 7 dot days.

Next three years were bad. 2014 had 27, 2015 had 22 and 2016 had 22 dot days.

Amazingly, 2017 was a year with ZERO dot days. So there was a post every day in the year 2017. What an achievement for the blog that year, though I was not aware of it till a few days back.

2018 saw 7 dot days.

So far every day of 2019 has seen at least one post in the blog.

So overall there have been 215 dot days out of 3877 days that the blog has been in existence.

I mentioned above that 2009 had 25 dot days. The first dot day of 2009 was this day ten years ago, viz 28 february 2009.

Now, I would not like today to be a day without posts as part of my ten year challenge. 🙂 It only means that today is a day when blog ten year challenge cannot take place. 🙂

Today 28 february 2019 is the last day of the month. It is the day of clearing hisaab, viz that of milkman etc. It is also the day when many people whose birthday falls in the month superannuate if it was their 60th birthday.

It is a good time for the blog to notch another century, viz century number 149, in other words song post number 14900. This century has taken a glacial 72 days to arrive. The century must have been slow , but looking at the bright side, there was no dot day during these 72 days. 🙂

The song that I have chosen for the occasion is from “Shyam Tere Kitne Naam”(1977). This movie was produced by Vinod Kumar and A Narang and directed by Shantilal Soni. The movie had Sachin, Sarika, Meena T, Manhar Desai, Bharat Bhooshan, Shyama, Jalal Agha, Sunder etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog.

The song under discussion is sung by Hemlata. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravindra Jain.

The song is picturised on Sarika and Sachin, who were a hit jodi of low budget movies in 1970s (mostly produced by Rajshree Productions).

This song marks the birth anniversary of Ravindra Jain (28 february 1944-9 October 2015). This song also happens to be the 100th song of Ravindra Jain in the blog as a music director. So Ravindra Jain becomes the latest centurion in the blog. He is the 36th music director and the 87th artist overall to have one hundred (or above) of his songs showcased in the blog.

As always, I thank one and all for their continuous support and encouragement which keeps fuelling the blog which in turn continues to chug on and on relentlessly in its musical journey.

Blog Day : 3877 Post No. : 14899

“Razia Sultana”(1961) was directed by Devendra Goyal for Movie India, Bombay. This historical movie had Nirupa Roy (in title role), Jairaj, Kamran, M Kumar, N A Ansari, Agha, Sadhana Chaudhary, Leela Mishra, Rajan Kapoor, S M Sagar, Narad Muni, Madhumati, Jeewan Kala, Meena, Maqbool etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Razia Sultaana”(1961) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Geeta Dutt and chorus. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Lachchiram.

The song is picturised as a “sahelis teasing a lady” genre of song, where the teased lady is Nirupa Roy. She may have played the Empress in this movie, but in Hindi movies, even an empress is not exempted from being teased by her sahelis. 🙂

This song was lying in the drafts pages of the blog for several years and this song finally gets published today.

I am not able to identify the lady lip syncing the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 10
————————————————

Today is 27 february 2019. The day is almost over and the first post of the day is just about coming up. Things were much different on this day ten years ago. On that day (27 february 2009), as many as seven songs were covered. Those were the days when I would discuss six or seven sog a day with ease, and a century of songs would come up in sixteen days or so.

Even I am surprised at the level of energy motivation and passion that I used to possess those days. 🙂

Coming to this day ten years ago, as many as seven songs were covered. Six of these movies have been YIPPEED by now. The only unyippeed movie from that day is “Kaajal”(1965).

“Kaajal”(1965) was directed by Ram Maheshwari for Kalpanalok, Bombay. The movie had Meena Kumari, Raj Kumar, Dharmendra, Padmini, Sailesh Kumar, Helen, Durga Khoy=te, Jageerdar, Tiwari, Mahendra, Gopal Sahgal, Tuntun, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Abhimanyu Sharma, Polson, Rajan Kapoor, Mumtaz, Mehmood etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Eight songs from the movie have been covered in the past. The movie made its debut in the blog on this day ten years ago with the song Tora man darpan kahlaaye.

I had not watched any movies in movie halls from 1972 to 1977. Only after I reached College and got “freedom” that I began to watch movies with a vengeance, as if to make up for lost time. It was during this movie watching spree that I watched “Kaajal” (1965) in 1978 or 1979 in a movie hall called Ratan Talkies in Ranchi. So that was nearly forty years ago. I think that this cinema hall no longer exists. If we have any Ranchi based readers then I request the to help confirm or refute this fact.

When I watched the movie, I kept getting surprised repeatedly by the feeling-“arre, ye gaana is film ka hai”. The movie was full of well known timeless classic songs. Base somewhere in a neighbouring state, Raja too independently felt the same way when he watched this movie.

Coming to today’s song, it is a “shringaar” ras song which is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi, whom I had begun to regard as a creator of conic songs, thanks to a plethora of sungs composed by him that had ended up becoming timeless classics.

This song is picturised on Dharmendra and Padmini. Incidentally, This movie was the first occasion for me to watch Dharmendra, Padmini and many others.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila (Kaajal)(1965) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila
jazbaat ko ab mil jaane do
muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila
jazbaat ko ab mil jaane do
jis tarah mili hai do roohen
us tarah se lab mil jaane do
muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila

seene se hataa do aanchal ko
shaane se jhatak do zulfon ko
seene se hataa do aanchal ko
shaane se jhatak do zulfon ko
shaane se jhatak do zulfon ko
jaati huyi rangeen ghadiyon ko
rukne ka sabab mil jaane do
muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila

in paak gunaahon ki ghadiyaan
aati hai magar har raat nahin
in paak gunaahon ki ghadiyaan
aati hai magar har raat nahin
aati hai magar har raat nahin
is raat mein sab kho jaane do
is raat mein sab mil jaane do
muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila

मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला
जज़्बात को अब मिल जाने दो
मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला
जज़्बात को अब मिल जाने दो
जिस तरह मिली है दो रूहें
उस तरह से लब मिल जाने दो
मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला

सीने से हटा दो आँचल को
शाने से झटक दो जुल्फों को
सीने से हटा दो आँचल को
शाने से झटक दो जुल्फों को ओ
शाने से झटक दो जुल्फों को
जाती हुयी हंगीन घड़ियों को
रुकने का सबब मिल जाने दो
मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला

इन पाक गुनाहों कि घड़ियाँ
आती है मगर हर रात नहीं
इन पाक गुनाहों कि घड़ियाँ
आती है मगर हर रात नहीं ई
आती है मगर हर रात नहीं
इस रात में सब खो जाने दो
इस रात में सब मिल जाने दो
मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 9
————————————————

Great idea this, the ten year challenge series. Works as a great reminder across the years and makes us pay attention to films and songs that have been waiting in the wings for a long time.

Today, I pick that lovely little film from 1965 – ‘Akashdeep’. It had made its debut on our blog ten years ago today – 26th Feb, 2009. Dharmendra was a very fresh face, just about four or five years into his career that year, and Nanda was somewhat senior. Ashok Kumar plays the role of a right thinking but apparently an abrasive mill owner and businessman, with Nimmi in the role of his mute wife. Mehmood plays the younger brother of Ashok Kumar, with Shobha Khote as his wife. Mehmood and his family lives separately from his brother, in relative poverty – he runs a small tea shop. The story of the film is woven around a village community where the mill is major work provider – the story of the workers in conflict with the wealthy capitalists. The film has a socialist message. Ashok Kumar’s intentions are always good, but he is impatient with the people who do not understand his viewpoint. After the conflict, the story comes to a happy ending with Ashok Kumar transforming the factory into a co-operative, giving equal shares to all the workers.

The film has some really memorable songs penned by Majrooh Sb and tuned to wonderful melodies by Chitragupt. We have “Dil Ka Diya Jalaa Ke Gaya”, an enchanting Lata solo played on the gramophone player in the film – the song that introduces Nimmi to Ashok Kumar; then the ecstatic rendition by Rafi Sb – “. . . Mujhe Aap Kis Liye Mil Gaye”, presented on screen by Dharmendra in a soft late evening setting, by the waters of a lake; the lovely duet by Lata and Mahendra Kapoor – “Suniye Jaana. . .” – on screen Dharmendra and Nanda; and the lilting springy Lata solo again – “Miley To Phir Jhuke Nahin. . .” performed by Nanda next to the seashore, late evening setting once again. I list these four songs, for these are the most popular songs of this film and all of them are already showcased here on our blog.

Besides these, there are four more songs in this film. Two of the songs are of the social messaging type, one is a parody song performed as a stage presentation, and the fourth pending song is an all female duet sung by Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. As I checked out the online availability, I am surprised to note that this Asha-Usha duet song is not available anywhere. I was curious, for I could not recall having heard this song before. So, pulling it out of my collection, as I played it, I am completely bowled over by the melody construct that Chitragupt has weaved around the words of Mahrooh, and presented it as a twin dance song. Absolutely fresh and lovely presentation, even after more than sixty years.

‘Akashdeep’ is directed by Phani Majumdar – and coincidentally, we have a write up on this talented director published just yesterday by Sadanand ji, with the song “Taaron Se Akhiyaan Milaaun Main”.

So, presenting the fifth song of this film. A very less heard melody, which I am sure you will fancy immediately. Cheers and happy listening.

 

Song – Gudia Ban Ke Naachoon Saajna Ke Dwaare  (Akashdeep) (1965) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Chitragupt

Blog Day : 3875 Post No. : 14896

Hullo to all in Atuldom

I love masala movies as much as I love movies which are close to reality. I am of the opinion that movies should make us forget our daily tensions as much as entertain us. There were a few movie makers during my growing up years whose films were a must-see for my parents as they were entertaining as well as showed middle-class families and their ways. These movies were generally targeted towards family audiences – ‘Khoobsurat’ (1980), ‘Golmaal’ (1979), ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chupke Chupke’ (1975) etc fell in this category and I must thank Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chaterjee for these gems.

Then there were these absolute entertainers which needed us to keep “logic at home” before going to see them. Else how does one explain the story of a pair of twins one of whom looks much older than the other -‘Dharam Veer’ (1977) and ‘Suhaag’ (1979). How does one explain the jumps in the climax; the heroes begin punching the villains on board a ship – belonging to a Rajput clan- that is anchored at sea but sing romantic songs and songs of friendship in the environs of Kashmir (in ‘Dharam Veer’). Or the heroes are following the villain who has kidnapped their mother through the streets of Mumbai on the way to the Juhu airport (which used to be where people parked their private aircrafts formerly) but strangely the streets look like some foreign land – turns out it was Singapore!! But when the climax scene is getting over, and the villains meet their final fate, all the places that Mumbaikars are familiar with make an appearance on the screen (in ‘Suhaag’).

Now ‘Suhaag’ and ‘Dharam Veer’ are two movies which I must have seen a number of times (have lost count) in spite of all these glaring ‘logic-less-ness’ (I know there is no such word in English language). There are a few other movies which fall under the ‘entertainer without logic’ category- ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Parvarish’ (1977), ‘Naseeb’ (1981), ‘Desh Premee’ (1982), ‘Coolie’ (1983), ‘Mard’ (1985) – which I have seen about 100 times (not exaggerating). And it seems the maker of these Mr. Manmohan Desai had the confidence that his audience will lap it all up without questions.

In recent times I have been seeing these series of videos on YouTube wherein Amitabh Bachchan (the permanent fixture in most of the above-mentioned Manmohan Desai movies) in company of Rishi Kapoor was relating how they enacted all those scenes, as directed by Manji (Manmohan Desai’s pet name apparently) even if they were not personally convinced that there was any logic in the scene. The duo specially drew attention to the “mother of all logiclessness” scene – three people lying in a row and donating blood to an accident victim. Now there is nothing illogical in three people donating blood; but blood from the three being collected into a single bottle? And a single tube carrying blood to the patient!!! And has anyone heard of the blood group of RH. Also, Amitabh pointed out how Manji thought the villains were brainless as they could not see through the disguise of 3 people who have gate-crashed into a wedding and singing on top of their voices – ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’.

Anyway, such were the movies of Manmohan Desai in the 70s. He started making movies in the 60s with ‘Chhalia’ (1960) being his directorial debut. Which was followed by ‘Bluffmaster’ (1963), ‘Budtameez’ (1966), ‘Sachaa Jhootha’ (1970), ‘Kismat’ (1968) etc. Of the 20 films he made in a career span of 29 years 13 were successful. He had writers like Kadar Khan, KK Shukla, Prayag Raj, Salim Javed, Anand Bakshi, Sahir, Qamar Jalalabadi, Gulshan Bawra and Shailendra pen the stories and songs for these movies. He had also worked with Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmi Pyare, RD Burman and Anu Malik for music direction in his movies.

Today’s post is to remember the magic of Manmohan Desai on his 82nd birth anniversary and what better song than the one that shows his logical thinking. One patient getting blood from three donors all at once. 🙂


Song-Khoon khoon hota hai paani nahin (Amar Akbar anthony)(1977) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

khoon khoon hota hai paani nahin
khoon khoon hota hai paani nahin
khoon khoon hota hai paani nahin

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 07
—————————————————

I remember during the radio days, whenever a non filmy song programme would start, we would shut down the radio.  Now it was time to play or to do some study seriously or even watch TV.  The time for all of these things was limited.  Entertainment was available only on its time with fixed hours and no more, because even if we were free the friends will be called home and play time was over.  Time spend with friends in the colony playing or just doing gup-shup was precious.

One Doordarshan showed, programs in English, Marathi and Gujarati in variety of topics, kids shows, game & sports, filmy shows, quiz shows, songs etc.  There used to be a program even for farmers called ‘Aamchi Maati Aamchi Manasa” (Our Soil and Our People).  Childrens shows such as ‘Aao Maare Saathe’ and ‘Santa Kukdi’ are there in the memory.  Shows like Sabira Merchants ‘Whats the Good Word’ and Tabassum’s ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’ and some shows by Yaqub Saeed are also in the recesses of deep memory.

Now everything is available anytime anywhere, with no fixed hours.  Unlimited everything and I am back to the same theme of technology being good, but too much dependence on it is not so good.  Its advancement are there for the human use, but what is happening all around is the other way round.  The technology of internet /wi-fi is occupying the total collective human waking time and imagination.  In fact there is nothing left to imagination, all of it is on display, so to speak.

Now back to what I was saying in the first paragraph.  So sugam sangeet and anyhting non-filmy was a no-go zone as far as I can remember.  I think it was my older sister who found those geet/songs drama shows like ‘Hawal Mahal’ etc. boring.  So Vividh Bharati and All India Radio Urdu Service, both were only used to … listen to film songs. 🙂  Now I realise that this way I missed out on the non-film songs of various singers including those of Rafi Sb.  Even Radio Ceylon was only for Binaca Geet Mala, and nothing else.  So I had zero exposure of non film songs till those private videos started on television, for popularising the private music albums.  Since my association with the blog I have learnt to appreciate the non-film songs and geets a lot better.

This post is to revive a series on Rafi Sb which I had started in 2016. The last post (no. 6) appeared in the blog on 31.07.2016, which was song No. 06 – Hum To Chale Pardes Hum Pardesi Ho Gaye.

Now his song no. 07 is a non-film ghazal which is written by Mirza Ghalib and composed by Khayyaam Sb.  And rendition is by the one and only Rafi Sb.  This is taken from the LP ‘Ghalib – Portrait of a Genius’, which was released by HMV in 1968 on the occasion of the birth centenary celebrations of this poet genius.

This is a popular ghazal and there are many renditions by other singers too.  They seem to have been circumspect in selecting the ‘asha’ar’ to include in the rendition as have Khayyaam and Rafi Sb.  This ghazal was made popular also by Gulzar Sahab, when he used a sha’ir from this ghazal for the mukhda of the song ‘Dil Dhoondta Hai Phir Wohi‘ in ‘Mausam’ (1975).

About the rendition what can one say that has not been said before.  Words are inadequate as the listeners can listen and realise.


Song – Muddat Hui Hai Yaar Ko Mehmaan Kiye Huye (NFS) (1968) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Mirza Ghalib, MD – Khayyaam

Lyrics

muddat hui hai yaar ko mehmaan kiye huye..ea
josh-e-qadah se bazm charaghaan kiye huye..ea
muddat hui hai yaar ko. . .

maange hai phir kisi ko lab-e-baam par hawas 
maange hai phir kisi ko lab-e-baam par hawas 
zulf-e-siyaah rukh pe pareshaan kiye huye..ea
zulf-e-siyaah rukh pe. . .

ik nau bahaar-e-naaz ko taake hai phir nigaah
chehra farogh-e-mai se gulistaan kiye huye..ea
chehra farogh-e-mai se. . .

ji dhoondhtaa hai phir wohi fursat ke raat din
ji dhoondhtaa hai phir wohi fursat ke raat din
baitthe rahe tasavvur-e-jaanan kiye huye..ea
baitthe rahe tasavvur-e. . .

‘Ghalib’ hamen na chhed ke phir josh-e-ashk se..ea
baitthe hain ham tahaiyya-e-toofan kiye huye..ea

muddat hui hai yaar ko mehmaan kiye huye..ea..ea

Blog Day : 3874 Post No. : 14894

The New Theatres Ltd.(NT) has given some outstanding and famous directors to the Hindi film industry who got fame on an all-India level. A couple of them got recognition in the international level also. I list below a few of them:

Debaki Bose was known for his films like ‘Chandidas’ (Bengali, 1932), ‘Puran Bhagat’ (1933), ‘Seeta’ (1934), ‘Vidyapati’ (1937). ‘Nartaki’ (1940) etc. Kidar Sharma called him the ‘Dronacharya of film making’. He was the first director who used background music. Probably, he was also the first Indian film director who was honoured with a Certificate of Merit for his direction of the film ‘Seeta’ (1933) at Cannes Film Festival.

Nitin Bose was known for the use of his magical camera angle in the films he directed. His camera angles spoke more than the dialogues. Some of the notable films he directed was ‘Chandidas’ (Hindi, 1934), ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935), ‘President’ (1937), ‘Dharti Mata’ (1938), ‘Milan’ (1946), ‘Deedar’ (1951), ‘Waaris’ (1954), ‘Ganga Jamuna’ (1961) etc. He was the first to experiment with playback singing in his film ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935). He got the idea when he saw Pankaj Mullick singing in tandem with a song which he was playing on his gramophone record player.

P C Barua, though not originally from NT, got name and fame when he joined NT and directed ‘Devdas’ (1935). He directed some other films like ‘Manzil’ (1936), ‘Mukti’ (1937), ‘Zindagi’ (1940), ‘Jawaab’ (1942), ‘Subah-Shaam’ (1944) etc. He was the first director who used ‘flash back’ technique in ‘Roop Lekha’ (1934).

Bimal Roy started his filmy career as Assistant to P C Barua in cinematography, editing and direction. He was the Cinematographer for films like ‘Devdas’ (1935), Mukti’ (1937), ‘Haar Jeet’ (1940), ‘Meenakshi’ (1942) etc. He got his first assignment as director in NT when he directed ‘Hamraahi’ (1945). Other well-known films which he directed include ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953), ‘Devdas’ (1955), ‘Madhumati’ (1958), ‘Sujata’ (1959), “Bandini’ (1963). ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953)’ was critically acclaimed and won a prize at Cannes Film Festival. ‘Madhumati’ (1958) got a total of 9 ‘Filmfare’ awards.

Name of a well-known director from NT is missing from the above list. I have chosen him in this article for his detailed profile. And he is Phani Majumdar.

Phani Majumdar (28/12/1911-16/05/1994) was born in Faridkot in Bengal Presidency (now in Bangla Desh). After his graduation in 1930, Phani Majumdar worked as a typist in a company. His connection with films started when he joined as Stenographer to P C Barua in Barua Studio sometime in 1932. Later he became his Assistant Director in ‘Devdas’ (1935) and ‘Mukti’ (1937). He was a script-writer for ‘Abhagin’ (1938).

Phani Majumdar got his opportunity to debut as director in ‘Street Singer’ (1938) with K L Saigal and Kanan Devi in lead roles. This film is regarded as classical musical melodrama like ‘Devdas’ (1935). His debut film was highly successful at the box office. With this film, K L Saigal and Kanan Devi reached the pinnacle of their filmy career as actor-singer.

After successfully directing ‘Kapal Kundala’ (1939) for NT, Phani Majumdar shifted his base to Bombay (Mumbai) sometime in 1941. But working as a free-lance director was not a cakewalk for him especially at a time when there was scarcity of raw films, getting actors for the films who were mostly studio attached and the studio time for shooting. But due to his fame as a director of ‘Street Singer’ (1938) and also his friendly nature, he could overcome the initial obstacles.

Luck favoured Phani Majumdar. Chimanlal Trivedi had closed down his film production company, CIRCO Productions and had set up a new banner, Laxmi Productions. He engaged Phani Majumdar for directing his first film ‘Tamanna’ (1942) under the new banner. From the cast and crew of the film, it would appear that Phani Majumdar had a free hand in selecting them. Apart from actors for the film like Leela Desai, Jagdish Sethi, K C Dey who were earlier attached to NT, he had engaged 7 technicians from Bengal for the film. This was the first film in Mumbai for Leela Desai.

‘Filmindia’, in its review of ‘Tamanna’ (1942) while lauding the performances of Jairaj, Leela Desai, Jagdish Sethi and K C Dey, was critical of the direction by Phani Majumdar. However, some of the film producers seemed to have a different views. The result was that Phani Majumdar was flooded with new assignments as director for ‘Mohabbat’ (1943), ‘Rajkumar’ (1944) and ‘Meena’ (1944). Thereafter, he produced and directed ‘Devdasi’ (1945), Insaaf’ (1946) and ‘Door Chalen’ (1946). He also directed an off-beat film ‘Hum Bhi Insaan Hain’ (1948) starring Dev Anand and Ramola.

In the early 1950s, Phani Majumdar directed ‘Andolan’ (1951) which was virtually a documentary type film depicting the history of the Indian National Congress since its inception in 1885 until 1947 and India’s freedom struggle. Thereafter, he directed Bombay Talkies’ ‘Tamasha’ (1952) and ‘Baadbaan’ (1954), the latter being actually produced by the Bombay Talkies Workers Cooperatives. Both these films were critically acclaimed though they were not successful in terms of box office receipts. Shakti Samanta assisted Phani Majumdar in both these films in direction as also in dialogues/script writing.

During 1955-59, Phani Majumdar joined Shaws’ Malay Films Productions, Singapore. During this period, he directed 11 films in Malay, Chinese and English languages. He directed the first Eastman Colour film in Malay language, ‘Hang Tuah’ (1956). The film won awards in the Asian Film Festival held in Hong Kong in 1957 and was nominated for the Golden Berlin Bear in Berlin International Film Festival, 1957. The prominent Malaysian film maker, Jamir Sulong assisted Phani Majumdar in his 6 out of 8 films he directed in Singapore.

After returning to India in 1959, he directed successful films like ‘Aarti’ (1962), ‘Oonche Log’ (1965) and ‘Aakashdeep’ (1965). In all, he directed 26 feature films in Hindi during 1938-1989. He wrote the scripts for most of his films which he directed. In addition, he also directed a few Children’s films and films in other languages like Bengali, Punjabi, Magadhi, Maithili, Malay, Chinese, English etc. Towards the end of his filmy career, he directed a few TV serials in Kolkata.

Phani Majumdar left for heavenly abode on May 16, 1994 at the age of 83. He was married to actress Monica Desai, the younger sister of actress Leela Desai.

Phani Majumdar mostly directed films which were acclaimed as creator of social consciousness. One of such films he directed was ‘‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954). The film was produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone. The star cast included Kishore Kumar and Usha Kiran in the lead role supported by Kanhaiyalal, Gautam, Krishnakant, Nazira Begum, Shivraj, Usha Rani, Master Jagdeep, Baby Asha Parekh etc

The gist of the story of the film based on the film’s review in January 24, 1954 issue of ‘Filmfare’ and the song book of the film is as under:

Ramu (childhood roe played by Jagdeep) is the son of a poor Dhobi, Mahadeo. Ramu is smart and intelligent. His elder sister, Lakshmi is very proud of her younger brother. Every evening, Lakshmi walks through the fields to pick him up from the school for back home.

One day, Lakshmi falls ill. Mahadeo has no money to bring doctor to the village. Having ranked top in his class in the school examination, Ramu has to attend to a prize distribution ceremony. But Lakshmi cannot accompany him as she is ill. After the prize distribution ceremony, Ramu returns home quickly to show his Didi the books he received as the prize. He finds that his Didi is dead. Choked with grief, he asks his father as to why Didi died. Mahadeo has no answer except that he was so poor that he could not afford to call a doctor. The broken-hearted Ramu vows that he would become a doctor and treat free the poor in the village.

Mahadeo works hard to earn more money for the fulfillment of Ramu’s dream. In the school, Ramu is taunted by some of his rich classmates for a dream of a poor Ramu of becoming a doctor but he is indifferent to the taunts. Ramu’s hard work and his father’s struggle bring fruits. He finishes his school with good performance and gets admitted to the medical college.

Ramu’s aptitude for medical studies attracts attention of the Vice- Principal, Professor Tripathi. He takes a greater interest in Ramu’s studies. Ramu becomes a doctor. Professor Tripathi helps him further in his practice by placing his laboratory at Ramu’s disposal. He also allows Ramu to study in his residence since his house in the village is far-off. Professor Tripathi has a young daughter, Uma (Usha Kiran) who plays pranks with Ramu. Gradually, Uma falls in love with Ramu. However, he is shy to reciprocate the love. Moreover, he is aware that he is the son of a poor Dhobi and Uma is the daughter of a rich father. There is struggle between his heart and realities of the situation. However, at the end, they unite after overcoming the stumbling block of the society.

‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954) had 7 songs of which one song has been covered in the Blog. Interestingly, out of the 7 songs as many as 6 songs are solo songs of Asha Bhonsle. The remaining one song is sung by Kishore Kumar. All the songs were written jointly by Ali Sardar Jafri and Majrooh Sutanpuri and were composed by Khayyam.

I am presenting one of the remaining six songs from the film which is a rare one. The song is ‘taaron se akhiyaan milaaun main’ sung by Asha Bhonsle. When I first heard this song, I was surprised to note that the composition as well as the orchestrations of the song sounded like that of O P Nayyar. The fact is that when Khayyam composed the music for this song, O P Nayyar had not established himself as the music director of repute to copy his style of music. He came into prominence only after a runaway success of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) and its songs. But the film ‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954) was released on January 19, 1954, about 4 months before the release of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954).

Enjoy this song of Khayyam in the style of O P Nayyar.

Note: The information on Phani Majumdar is mainly from indiancine.ma, ‘Filmindia’ magazines, ‘Film Pictorial’- April 1945 issue and inputs from newspapers.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Same dates, last month, was a period of hectic activity. I believe pre-wedding period is the time when no one should check their BP. 🙂 I am often asked these days how does it feel after all the activity? Have you relaxed enough? Have you come to terms with the fact that your daughter is now married?

Phew!!! So many questions. Thinking of the last question- I don’t feel the difference; possibly because my daughter was already living away from home, due to her work, for almost 4 years now. She herself might answer like me. And to top it there is no custom of a “BIDAAI” in South Indian marriages, what we do is accompany the girl to her sasural and help her set-up home if she needs help in setting up. Also, in these modern ages when we are connected on an hourly basis through the various communication channels at our disposal, the feeling of the “daughter having got married” will never sink-in. The only complaint, well not exactly a complaint, is that after preparing for almost 4-5 months for the big day, it has come and gone and it is almost a month to the date.

Much like what students might feel at the end of their final year-end examinations!!! OH! Just realized the examinations for class 10 and 12 are about to begin in a week or two, for some it would have already started, ALL THE VERY BEST TO ALL THE STUDENTS their parents and teachers.

Now in the run-up to the wedding my husband had an idea that we should have some kind of entertainment for all those who come to attend the wedding. We were expecting many of our outstation friends and relatives on the previous day itself as the muhurta for the wedding was early and the guests might find it more convenient to reach the previous day, relax a bit and just have to wake up and get dressed for the big occasion. South Indian weddings are different from North Indian weddings in the sense there is no formal mehndi or sangeet attached with the rituals (South Indian weddings are rather staid). But we thought we might call a mehndi artist so that lady guests could have their hands adorned and there will be some pastime too where the grooms’ and bride’s family could mingle with each other.

Then there was also the bright idea to get the bright and talented kids and adults (who cared to join) to perform a song or dance which will further help kill time. We put our most enterprising and talented nieces and nephews on the job of hunting latent talent within the family and unanimously all of them decided that I should also, remove the dust cover and shake a leg or two. My only lament was that the dust cover was never removed and when I was called to do my ½ a minute thing on the stage I managed not to fall off it and also matched a few steps with my niece who had choreographed a rather simple number to one of the newer songs (which I had never heard of before the wedding eve.) I was happy we had a wonderful pre-wedding evening and no complained of boredom.

The whole dance and enjoyment reminded me of a song from the rather new (by the standards of this blog) movie “English Vinglish” (2012) which was directed by Gauri Shinde. The situation of the song was the wedding of Sridevi’s niece and the song shows the family practising some dance to be performed at the wedding. In fact, I had mentally practised a few steps to accompany the song if the DJ had played it (seems we only had to request, it was on his playlist) but we didn’t play it then. Since then it has been playing in my mind though. Then it struck me, as if a bolt from the blue, that we were close to Sridevi’s 1st death anniversary (its a year already!!!!! Time has flown really fast).

And so, here is the song which was Sridevi’s last dance number. There are no words to describe how beautiful she looked in that movie in the role of a homemaker whose husband and daughter keep pointing out her inability to speak in English. There are no words to describe how elegantly she carries herself in the saree and dance gracefully. Small wonder then, that people used to call her the only female superstar who could give all her co-actors a run for their money. In spite of this she was a much sought-after co-star who was comfortable and confident enough to be in the same frame as a Shivaji Ganesan, Dilip Kumar, Dharmendra, NTR, Rajkumar (of the south), or the actors of her age-group like Krishna (Telugu), Rajnikant, Kamal Hasan (Tamil), Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Mithun, Sunny Deol, etc. She was bold enough to refuse movies with Amitabh if her role in it lacked substance and Rajesh Khanna got help from her popularity in the period when he was trying to resurrect his career. And we don’t need to mention her movies with Jeetendra as they fall in a category of their own.

The song with this post is written by Swanand Kirkire and Amit Trivedi was the music director. We have Sunidhi Chauhan, Neelambari Kirkire, Natali DI Luccio, and Swanand Kirkire giving their voice to the song.
Thinking of our “Khwabon Ki Shehazaadi”.

Blog Day : 3873 Post No. : 14892

Today (24 february 2019) is the 95th birth anniversary of Talat Mehmood (24 February 1924-9 May 1998).

Talat Mehmood sang some 450 songs in all which includes HFM as well as NF songs. This blog contains 377 of his songs. So we are only about 70 odd songs short of covering all Talat Mehmood songs in the blog.

Today, on this occasion, here is a non film song of Talat Mehmood. Like most NFS, this song too has superb lyrics which are penned by Jigar Muradabadi. The song is composed by Iqbal. The date of release in not known, and I have assumed it to be 1960.

This is a Talat Mehmood song that I heard for the first time only just now, when I realised that today was Talat Mehmood birth anniversary.

Lots of me to Ghazal singers came up on the scene in later decades, but it is Talat Mehmood was the original pioneer of this genre of songs. And it can safely be said that few other ghazal singers can cast a spell over their listeners as Talat Mehmood can. Here is this ghazal as a ready proof.


Song-Bekaif dil hai aur jiye ja raha hoon main(Talat Mehmood NFS)(1960) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Jigar Moradabadi, MD-Iqbal

Lyrics

Bekaif dil hai aur
jiye ja raha hoon main
Bekaif dil hai aur
jiye ja raha hoon main aen
khaali hai sheesha
aur piye jaa raha hoon main aen
khaali hai sheesha
aur piye jaa raha hoon main aen
Bekaif dil hai ae

majboori e kamaal e muhabbat to dekhna aa aa
majboori e kamaal e muhabbat to dekhna aa aa
jeena nahin qubool
jiye jaa raha hoon main aen
Bekaif dil hai ae

wo dil kahaan hai
abke jise pyaar keejiye ae ae
wo dil kahaan hai
abke jise pyaar keejiye ae ae
majbooriyaan hain
saath diye ja raha hoon main aen
Bekaif dil hai ae ae

pehle sharaab jist thhi
ab jist hai sharaab
pehle sharaab jist thhi
ab jist hai sharaab
koi pila raha hai
piye ja raha hoon main
Bekaif dil hai aur
jiye ja raha hoon main aen
Bekaif dil hai ae ae

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 8

When our dear Atul ji recently started an ‘innovative’ initiative under the ‘ten-year challenge’ or ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ I had mentioned it in my comments on the ‘first song’ in this series that, I would try to share lyrics if not articles as possible in this series. I had also mentioned that I could see a few opportunities for me in the coming days of this month. That was because I was browsing the posts of February’2009 on my own.

Today I have this opportunity to share a ‘song post’ under this series. And since its from ‘seventies’ I am happy to share it here.

Ten years back, on this day i.e. on 23rd February 2009, we had songs from the movies ‘Rajkumar-1964’, ‘Milan-1967’, ‘Chor Machaaye Shor-1974’, ‘Call Girl-1974’, ‘Badi Bahan-1949’, and ‘Dushman-1939’ posted on the blog. All the moves mentioned above, except ‘Call Girl-1974’ have already had all their songs posted on the blog and in turn achieved ‘Yippeeee’ ed status on the blog. 🙂

So, we have ‘Call Girl-1974’ remaining to be covered for all songs on the blog. And so far, only one song of this movie has been posted on the blog. And, I think that the one song posted was the only well-known song from the movie or we can say that the movie is identified with this one song only i.e. ‘ulfat me zamaane ki har rasm ko thukraao’ sung by Kishore Kumar.

However, when I was going through the songs available from this movie and song list of this movie in HFGK-Vol-V, I found that the above song is actually a ‘multiple version song’ sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. So, I am also sharing the Lata Version for this song separately and requesting Atul ji to kindly update it in the post please. This song was posted on 23rd February 2009 and there was only comment on it on the same day by Greta Memsaab. The second comment was by Mr. Chandrakant H Shah on 08th Dec’2016 and he had mentioned about this song being a multiple version song. However somehow this has been remained to be updated.

I too remember this song ‘ulfat me zamaane ki har rasm ko thukraao’ as a Kishore Kumar song only and I think the version was not that much popular then. I had not watched this movie until now, so can’t say much about that. Except I vaguely remember to have heard this Kishore Kumar song on radio frequently and thereafter its memory was revived when I had started collecting cassettes in 1985-86. In 1987-88 after the death of Kishore Kumar HMV has released an album titled ‘A tribute to the Legend’ (it was a four-cassette set) and this song was included in this album.

As per HFGK listing of songs of this movie the Lata Mangeshkar version appears first (at number 3 in the movie) and the Kishore Kumar version appears later (at number five in the movie).

‘Call Girl-1974’ was directed by Vijay Kapoor for Mukesh Movies, Bombay. It was produced by Mukesh Khanna.

It had Zahira, Vikram, Iftekhar, Urmila Bhatt, Shekhar Purohit, Minoo Mehtab, Reddi, Mansaram, Satyajeet, Shefali, Jankidas and Kuljeet.
Heena Kausar make a special appearance in this movie.

Jalal Agha and Nazneen, Krishan Dhawan and Paintal have friendly appearances in this movie. Story of this movie was by Mukesh Movies Story Department. Editing of this movie was done by B.S. Glaad. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by K. A. Abbas.

This movie had total seven songs including one multiple version song and one cabaret dance music. All the songs in this movie were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and music was composed by Sapan-Jagmohan. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Ranu Mukherjee who gave their voices to the songs in this movie had one solo song each, and there was one duet sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar and one by Kishore Kumar and Ranu Mukherjee.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1974 with restricted viewing certificate (A).

Since I have not watched this movie, I can’t say much about it or the songs from this movie. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar and picturized on Vikram and Zahira.

The song is a nice one though it must not be popular or heard that much as the other song from this movie.

jahaan tu le chaley
o ho ho
jidhar tu le chaley

ऐसी जगह पाए कहाँ

देखता है सागर
लहरें हमें जाने

झोंके ये दीवाने ए

एक पल भी मेरी जान
यहाँ ना रुकेंगे हम

महकी डगर है
ला ला ल ल ला आ
साथी मेरे ये तो बता
