“Chingaari”(1955) was directed by S Srivastava for co-operative pictures production, Bombay. The movie had Shekhar, Nalini Jaywant, Leela Misra, Sunalini Devi, Pran etc in it.

This forgotten movie had eight rare songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Chingaari”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist. HFGK mentions the music director as Manohar.This Manohar is Manohar Arora.

This movie had seven Lata solo songs in it. It can be assumed that they were all meant for the lead actress viz Nalini Jaiwant.

“Parvarish”(1977) was directed by Manmohan Desai for A G Films, Bombay. This movie had Shammi Kpoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Nitu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Kadar Khan, Amjad Khan, Dev Kumar, Indrani Mukherji, Hina Kausar, Master Ratan, Master Tito, Chand Usmani, Sheikh, Bhushan Tiwari, Viju Khote, Tom Alter, Yusuf, Meena, Baby Shalu, Moolchand etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is picturised on Shabana Azmi and Nitu Singh who play pickpockets on the streets of Bombay.While Nitu Singh was a natural in such a role, Shabana Azmi was a total misfit in this role. So movie makers rightly avoided goving her similar non serious roles in future.

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Shaap Mochan’ (1955, Bangla film) was based on a story of the same name written by the Bengali novelist Falguni Mukhopadhyay. The film was directed by Sudhir Mukherjee. The main actors in the film were Uttam Kumar, Suchitra Sen and Pahadi Sanyal. The film is available on-line for viewing without English sub-titles.

The film is about a musical family in which one of the forefathers had been cursed by a Guru that any one in his family who takes up singing would die prematurely or become invalid for insulting him for non-acceptance as Guru. Devendra (Pahadi Sanyal) became blind while taking up the singing as the career forcing him to give up the singing. Because of the curse, he gets the assurance from his younger brother, Mahendra (Uttam Kumar) that he would also not practice singing.

In order to sustain the family, Devendra sends his brother Mahendra to Kolkata to his friend for getting him a job. Mahendra stays with him who has a daughter, Madhuri (Suchitra Sen). During the course of their inter-action, Madhuri comes to know that Mahendra is a talented singer. She encourages him to become a singer. He reveals to her as to why he can not take up singing. However, Madhuri does not believe in the superstition.

It so happens that Mahendra remains unemployed which forces him to become a singer for earning. Over a period of time, he becomes a famous singer and earns good money in his profession. Madhuri and Mahendra fall in love. However, the curse falls on Mahendra and he becomes seriously ill. Madhuri tends him and gets him to fully recover from his serious illness. With this, the family’s superstitious belief in curse is broken. The film has a happy ending.

The film has 6 songs of which one song is in Hindi. That song is a bandish, ‘kaliyan sang karata rang raliyaan’ which is rendered by Pandit D V Paluskar in Raag Bahar as Chhota Khayal. The bandish was written by Kiniwaale Ram. Although Hemant Kumar has been accredited as the music director for all the six songs in the film, it is apparent that Pandit D V Paluskar had a say in the composition of the tune in Raag Bahar.

Earlier, I was under the impression that Pandit D V Paluskar sang as a playback singer in only one film – Baiju Baawra’ (1952). His jugalbandi song, aaj gaawat man mero jhoom ke, rendered with Ustad Amir Khan is par excellence among the Hindustani classical raag-based Hindi film songs. It was G N Joshi of HMV who had suggested to Naushad saab to take Ustad Amir Khan and Pandit D V Paluskar for this jugalbandi song. Naushad first approached Ustad Amir Khan who agreed to sing provided Pandit D V Paluskar was his ‘opponent’ and he would not mind losing in the jugalbandi to him. This showed the respect Pandit D V Paluskar commanded from his equally illustrious classical vocalist. Incidentally, both Ustad Amir Khan and Pandit D V Paluskar never sang this jugalbandi in their respective public concerts despite the demand from the audience.

Pandit D V Paluskar (28/05/1921 – 25/10/1955), the Hindustani classical vocalist rendered mostly khayal and tarana in his own style without attaching himself to the orthodox Gharanas. But experts in Hindustani classical music believe that his singing style was close to Gwalior Gharana. In the short span of 34 years of his life, he had become one of the foremost among the Hindistani classical vocalist. Those who had witnessed his concerts had observed that he was a classical vocalist with a difference – he sang for the common man blending the classical renditions with popular appeal. He also sang bhajans in Hindustani classical raags.

G N Joshi of HMV who was also an illustrious Hindustani classical vocalist and the music director had mentioned in one of his articles that Pandit D V Paluskar had a rare quality of recording any Hindustani classical raag within the disc space of about 3:25 minutes in 78 RPM gramophone records incorporating all the ‘alankars’ (ornamentations) that generally go with the Khayal type of renditions. Pandit D V Paluskar was also known for his exquisite aalaaps and taans which are evident in the bandish under discussion.

The bandish describes the spring season during which bees are flirting with new flower buds. Gardens are in full bloom. Peacocks are calling and koels are singing. Trees, laden with blossoms are waving in the breeze. Women are out in groups with buckets to bring water from the river. Overall, the scenarios gladden the heart of everyone.

I am not sure whether I have captured all the sargam in lyrics for the second half of the chhota khayal as Pandit ji’s rendition of sargam taan is very fast.

A more elaborate rendition ( nearly 15 minutes) of this bandish in Raag Bahar by Pandit D V Paluskar is now available on-line here which he had performed on All India Radio’s National Programme of Music sometime in early 1950s.

Though most Hindi movies are based on native themes, often drawn from mythology, folk tales, history, contemporary day to day life etc, there have been movies based on non Indian topics as well.

Tarzan for some reason has been a very popular non Indian character that gets covered in Hindi movies quite often.

That is not all, it often gets combined with some other unrelated characters/ topics as well. For instance, we have movies that combine Tarzan with characters from enirely different locations, viz “Tarzan and Kingkong”, “Tarzan in Fairyland”, “Tarzan comes to Delhi”, “Tarzan and Captain Kishore” etc.

That is not all. Tarzan, an early 19th century character finds himself pitted against characters/ items separated in time by hundreds and even thousands of years. For instance “Tarzan and Delilah”, “”Tarzan and Hercules,” “Tarzan aur Jaadui Chiraag” etc.

1960s was a decade when Hindi B grade movie makers took particular fancy to Tarzan and made most of the above Tarzan movies. There were two Tarzan movies in 1963 and three each in 1964, 1965 and 1966, one each in 1968, 1969 and 1970. 15 Tarzan movies in one decade !

Here is a song from a Tarzan movie called “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). How Tarzan dwelling in Jungles of Africa meets American or European Rockets, only the moviemakers can tell. This movie was directed by B J Patel for Peoples Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shanti Lal, Rajan Kapoor, Babu Raje, Bhopali, Polsan, Shakila Bano etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the past. While covering that song, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, provided the story of the movie. It goes like this :

Professor Anil sets up his Lab to do research on rockets, in a Jungle to keep it a secret. His daughter Mala was looking after him. One day Mala is saved from a Tiger by the king of the Jungle Tarzan and as a duty, she immediately falls in his love. One day the king and queen of the jungle tribe come to meet the professor. The king has a tumour in his neck. The Professor treats him successfully and the king promises him full cooperation and protection. This is, however not liked by the King’s advisor Niranjan.

After few days, Niranjan kidnaps Mala and blackmails the professor to give him the secret formula to make such rockets which will take the man to the Moon. Tarzan arrives and in a fight rescues Mala.

Niranjan is very angry and he puts a fire to the Professor’s laboratory and in that fire all his secret formulae and the Rocket prototype is burnt down. Tarzan throws Niranjan into the same fire.

The professor decides to return to the City, but Mala chooses to remain with Tarzan in the Jungle.(Jungle mein mangal).

Here is another song from “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and chorus. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

This song is a catchy and hummable song. One would imagine this to be a club dance song, rather than a song from a Tarzan movie. But that is how it is.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Hum tumko mana rahe hain (Rocket Tarzan)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Robin Bannerji
Chorus

Lyrics

lalalala
lala
lalalala

hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi zaalim
hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain

ye bekaraar dil hi
meri to zindagi hai
manzil mujhe milegi
dil ko mere yaqeen hai
?? hoga ik din ye sab zamaana
hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi zaalim
hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain

kab tak juda rahenge
yoon manzilon se rahe
kab tak rahengi tanha
yoon aarzu ki baahen
raahon ki mushkilon ko
ik din hai sar jhukaana

hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi jalim hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain

Hullo Atuldom

24th November 2019 is the 75th birthday of Amol Palekar – the actor who played a common man or the boy next door character so convincingly that it jolted the audience when they saw him play a cold-blooded murderer in Vinod Chopra’s “Khamosh” (1985). He played a similar grey-shaded character in “Teesra Kaun” (1994) and “Aanchal” (1980). So, it is not as if he always stuttered in front of a strict boss as in “Golmaal” (1979), “Damaad” (1978), a person who is hyper worried that he will die of some grave illness, leaving his beautiful young wife grieving – “Meri Biwi Ki Shaadi” (1979) etc.

In between he also attempted playing a different kind of character in “Pyaasi Aankhen” (1983). At least that is what I have deduced from the video that is accompanying today’s song. To be truthful, I had never heard of this movie or its songs till I thought of writing this post. I have heard two songs from the movie and they seem to portray a different kind of Amol Palekar. The movie feels like it will be a heavy, 4-5 handkerchief movie, as tear-jerker movies used to be called back then. This movie was directed by Ram Kelkar who was essentially a screenplay/ dialogue/ script writer for many movies like “Piya Ka Ghar”, “aasha”, “Aap Ki Kasam” and many more successful films. On further googling information on Ram Kelkar we find that he has directed only one other movie- “Duniyadari” in 1977.

“Pyaasi Aankhen” had star cast of Waheeda Rehman- Shabana Azmi- Asha Sachdev- Amol Palekar- Om Prakash, with music by Usha Khanna. Indeevar and Rana Saheri (never heard this name) wrote the songs which were sung by Asha Bhonsle Usha Khanna and Kishore Kumar. This is all the information I could gather on the internet;

I would love to know what the story is and why there is a romantic number between Asha Sachdev and Amol Palekar. Also, I would love to know if Waheeda Rehman played his all sacrificing mother, who is an eye-sore for the haughty daughter-in-law played by Asha Sachdev (my assumption) as I found a song that preached the story of a son who plucks out the mother’s heart because the d-i-l asked for it.

I also found a dance number where Amol Palekar and Shabana have actually done a Bollywood-style folk number. We have always seen this pair in semi-serious avatar as in “Apne Paraye”, Kumar Sahani’s “Tarang” (an art film), and a few more (cannot recollect off-hand).

Today we have a lively song sung by Kishore Kumar and Usha Khanna. After seeing the video, I must admit Amol Palekar is a person with a sense of rhythm and moves well to the beats, he didn’t make a spectacle of himself. He is joined by Om Prakash, Sundar and Shabana and we see Waheeda Rehman being dragged into the dance towards the end. Asha Sachdev is seen enjoying herself. This song from a lesser known movie is a discovery for me.

“Tarzan and Kingkong”(1965) was directed by A Shamsheer for Amrit Kala Mandir, Bombay. the movie had Randhawa, Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Shyam Kumar, Bela Bose, Rani, Heera Saawant, Rajen Kapoor, Bhagwan, Roopesh Kumar etc in it.

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

Here is the third song from “Tarzan and Kingkong”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

The song is picturised as a rajdarbaar dance song. I am unable to identify the daner. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. One can identify Shyam Kumar and Bhagwan among the audience.


Song-Dil toone kehna maana (Tarzan aur Kingkong)(1965) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Robin Bannerji

Lyrics

dil toone kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ka
haay kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana

bedardi baalma khudgarzi
bedardi baalma khudgarzi
main samjhoon main jaanoon re teri marji
main samjhoon main jaanoon re teri marji
haay pahle churaaye jiyaa phir tadpaaye
bairi badala chukaaye kaise mere ehsaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ka
haay kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana

jaa julmi dekh li teri yaari
jaa julmi dehk li teri yaari
o chhaliyaa hai jhoothi ye dildaari
o chhaliyaa hai jhoothi ye dildaari
are ankhiyaan ji waade kare aankhe beisraaye
haay koi thikaana nahin jis beimaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ki
haay re kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana aa aa

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Aalor Pipasa’ (Thirst for Light) was a Bangla film released in January 1965. The film was directed by Tarun Majumdar. The film is available on-line with English sub-titles. The story of the film is about a courtesan (Sandhya Roy) who sacrifices her life for the betterment of her son. The entire story is depicted in the film by way of flash back when a senior doctor (Pahadi Sanyal) tells the story of the courtesan to his junior doctor (Asit Baran). The junior doctor happens to be the courtesan’s son.

Obviously, the story of the film revolves around Sandhya Roy and I must say that she has given an outstanding performance in the film. Hitherto, my knowledge about Sandhya Roy was limited to her Hindi films like ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962), ‘Pooja Ke Phool’ (1964), ‘Jaane Anjaane’ (1971) etc. But in Hindi films she had only secondary roles like Dev Anand’s ‘munhboli bahen’ (adoptive sister) in ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962) where she displays her combative but soft at heart attitudes. The song from the film laakh chupaao chhup na sakega was picturised on her.

In Bangla films, Sandhya Roy has been one of the prominent actresses who has been active in Bangla film industry for over 5 decades starting with lead roles and switching over to character roles. She has worked in more than 100 films. She is also in politics having successfully contested parliamentary election from Mednipur in 2014 on Trinamul Congress ticket.

Sandhya Roy (born 11/04/1941) was born in Nabadwip (West Bengal). However, her family belonged to Khulna (now in Bangla Desh) where her grand father was a landlord. In her childhood, she lost her parents. She was brought up by her maternal uncle at Khulna where she had her early education.

In 1957, Sandhya Roy returned to Kolkata and stayed with her sister. This was the beginning of her unexpected journey to Bangla films. While watching the shooting of the film ‘Mamlar Fol’ (1957), the director saw her and offered her a role in the crowd. Her first full-fledged film was ‘Antariksha’ (1957). After the success of this film, she started getting offers of lead roles in many Bangla films. She remained one of the leading actresses in Bangla films during 1960-80. During this period, she was paired with Biswajeet in about 20 films.

Sandhya Roy had her stint in Hindi films with ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962) which was followed by ‘Pooja Ke Phool’ (1964), ‘Raahgir’ (1969), ‘Jaane Anjaane’ (1971), Bandagi’ (1972) etc. The last Hindi film she acted was ‘Ek Anaar Sau Bimaar’ (2008). However, despite her good acting, she could not actively pursue her career in Hindi films.

From 1980s onward, Sandhya Roy continues to work in Bangla films as a character actress beside pursuing her political career.

Sandhya Roy married Tarun Majumdar, one of the leading directors of Bangla films who had also directed Hindi films, ‘Balika Badhu’ (1967) and ‘Raahgir’ (1969).

‘Aalor Pipasa’ (1965) had nine songs of which as many as 5 songs were Hindi semi-classical songs. This was to be expected since the story of the film revolves around a courtesan who entertains her clients by singing and dancing. The film also has a Sanskrit strotra (hymns) which has been rendered by Hemant Kumar as a background song when credit titles roll in the film.

In the film, Lata Mangeshkar sings two solos for Sandhya Roy of which I have selected the song ‘ghir aayi badariya piya naahi aaye’. The song has been written by Kaifi Azmi which has been set to music by Hemant Kumar.


Song-Ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye (Aalor Pipaasa)(Bangla)(1965) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahi aaye
tan man jale mora birha sataaye
tan man jale mora birha sataaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye

jaa jaa re badra tu pi ko manaa laa
jaa jaa re badra……aa aa aa aa aa
jaa jaa re badra tu pi ko manaa laa
pi ke bina mohe kachhu hi na bhaaye
pi ke bina mohe
pi ke bina mohe kachhu hi na bhaaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye

jeewan hai pyaasa ankhiyaan hain pyaasi
jeewan hai pyaasa ankhiyaan hain pyaasi
jeewan hai pyaasa ankhiyaan hain pyaasi
megha re kaahe ko jhariya lagaaye
megha re kaahe ko
megha re kaahe ko jhariya lagaaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye
tan man jale mora birha sataaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye….ye ye

Hullo Atuldom

Na Chaahoon Sona Chaandi” was the first time I took note of this roly-poly cute- faced actor. He played Braganza, a head-fisherman and father to ‘Bobby’ in 1973. Subsequently I saw him as mama to the character played by Hema Malini in ‘Aap Beeti’ in 1976, a pathan who helps Manoj Kumar in ‘Shor’ (1972), a sardar who was a good Samaritan in ‘Roti Kapda aur Makaan’ (1974).

Then one day on chitrahaar or it could have been chaayageet on Doordarshan I saw a black and white song “Patli Kamar Hai” where this particular actor was super good-looking which was enough to sweep the lady he was wooing, off her feet. He came across as a dancer with a reasonable sense of rhythm. That is when I was informed by my dad that Premnath was a lead actor in many movies and rattled of names like ‘Aab-e-Hayaat’ (1955), ‘Baadal’ (1951), ‘Aag’ (1948) etc. and also sang a few of his songs from movies where he was the hero. Recently, not so long ago, I too saw a black-n-white movie, where Premnath played a ‘supposed’ poor boy who falls in love with a princess and helps the king regain his kingdom, the movie was an Arabian nights kind of story. Think it was ‘Saaqi’ (1952).

So I have loved movies where Premnath was Sir Juda (‘Karz’), Yamraaj (‘Lok Parlok’), IG Khanna (‘Kalicharan’), Bajrang Bahadur (‘Aap Beeti’), Shankar Dada (‘Dharam Karam’), father of a bevy of beauties (‘Ishk Ishk Ishk’, and the most memorable of them all – Rai Saab Bhupendra Singh in ‘Johnny Mera Naam’.  Thinking of him today on his birth anniversary he would have been 93.

There is another celeb of yesteryears who has her birthday today. And I wrote a post for her last month itself where I wrote this “I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 October 2019).’’ God only knows what I was thinking as I wrote that post and sent it hurriedly to Atul ji for posting. And the good man that he is, he posted it within an hour of my sending it. But the error was pointed out in the comments section by Partha Chanda ji and Prakashchandra ji. The next day Nahm ji, after reading the comments, messaged me to inquire if I was planning one more post for the actual birthdate and also to see if the song choices were clashing. I assured her that the choices don’t clash as we have a vast library to choose from.  I must say that we had an extra song and extra good wishes for our much-loved Helen.

As my practice has been over the years, I have managed to find a song which features both the birthday celebs. It is from the 1979 release ‘Magroor’’ which starred Shatrughan Sinha, Vidya Sinha, Premnath, Helen, Deven Verma, Nadira, Narendranath, Paintal, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Jagdish Raj etc. The film had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi wrote the lyrics. Playback singers were Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Anuradha Paudwal, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Mahendra Kapoor. All the 5 songs were duets.

Todays’ song is a club song where we see Helen (Rukhsaana) being wooed by a bunch of suitors (extras) and Premnath joining in on the fun. He is bodily lifted out of the dance floor by the cops at the end of the song. Playback for this song is by Asha and Mannada.

 

Song – Rukhsaana Rukhsaana Main Tera Deewaana  (Magroor) (1979) Singer -Asha Bhosle, Manna Dey, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
