Hullo Atuldom

“Ek Hi Raasta” (1956) was a movie that was produced and directed by B.R.Chopra with story-screenplay- dialogue written by Pt. Mukhram Sharma. Its songs were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Hemant Kumar who had Ravi as assistant and Yash Chopra was assistant to B R Chopra.

This is a movie which I saw only recently. It is popular as a movie on widow remarriage. But it dealt with a lot more.

It showed the young lady’s problems after her remarriage. It showed that the lady had a problem getting her son to accept the new man in her life as his father in spite of the new father being his own father’s boss and friend as also the little one’s. The movie tried to find the mental challenges a little boy faces when he is not told the whole truth regarding his father’s death. There are more complexities when the lady gives birth to a baby from her second marriage. The little boy leaves his foster father’s home with his infant brother in search of his father and mother. There are some tense moments (I was on the edge of my seat) before the movie comes to a close.

Daisy Irani (credited as Raja alias Roop Kumar in the movie’s titles) was simply brilliant. And who better to play the young mother than Meena Kumari.
Meena Kumari may have been typecast as a tragedy queen but there have been movies where she has shown her comic timing as in “Azaad”; “Mem Sahib”; “Miss Mary” etc. This movie too had comic moments between Sunil Dutt, Daisy Irani and Meena Kumari. There are also scenes that show her dancing capabilities.
This movie had eight songs and the blog has five of them. Two of the songs are in the same video on YouTube maybe because they follow each other in the movie with a very small dialogue in between.

Song Date of posting
Chali gori pee ke milan ko chali 31 January 2009
Saaanwle salone aaye din bahaar ke 21 April 2009
Bade bhaiyya laaye hain London se chhori 11 April 2012
Chamka ban kar aman ka taara 15 august 2012
Bekas ki aabroo ko neelaam kar ke chhoda 27 November 2012

The above are the songs from “Ek Hi Raasta” that are on the blog. The last post was in November of 2012. Don’t know how the movie has missed being YYIIPPEEEED. This post hopes to take it one step closer.

Meena Kumari was barely 38 when she bid goodbye to this world in 1972. Unbelievable that it is 49 years ago. Paying tribute to this uniquely beautiful lady who had a sweet voice too.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, the first part of the song being in Hemant Kumar’s voice. It shows the young mother trying to forget her pain and put her son to sleep and how both of them are missing the father.


Song-So jaa nanhe mere tu to so jaa(Ek Hi Raasta)(1956) Singers-Hemant Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

bhola bachpan
dukhi jawaani
lambi sooni raahon mein
nikle dard liye manzil ka
do khaamosh nigaahon mein
kaun kahe raahi ko
kitni door kahaan tak jaana hai
jeewan ki sunsaan dagar mein
kab tak thokar khaana hai

so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

jaagne ko pade hai
abhi din tere
tu toh so ja
so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
kho ja sapnon mein
tu mere aansoo na gin
tera nanha sa dil
mera gham kyun kare
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja aa

mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
aansuon ki toh ab hai meri zindagi
jaagna meri taqdeer hai baaware
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 19
———————————————————————————–
This date ten years ago (viz 31 March 2011) was a thursday and a working day. On looking back at the posts in the blog, I notice that four songs from four different movies were covered on that day. It was slow going by the standards of the blog those days. The first post of the day appeared at 10:58 AM and the fourth and final post at 1:12 PM. So it appears that this day ten years ago was a day when I could not devote much time for blogging. My guess is that I was journeying on this day in the morning and I arrived at Nagpur (my base) in the morning at around 10 AM and that is when I started blogging for the day.

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
3713 Jo dard banke zamaane pe chhaaye jaate hain Parbat Pe Apna Deraa(1944) Posted at 10:58 AM. 5 songs (out of 9) covered by now
3714 Tirulila Tirulila Tirulila la Daman(1951) Posted at 11:28 AM. 8 songs out of 10 covered by now.
3715 Nashe mein jo daulat ke ham dagmagaaye Sitaaraa(1955) Posted at 11:56 AM. 8 songs out of 10 covered by now
3716 Sune na koi man ki vyathhaa Subhadra Haran(1964) Debut song of the movie. Posted at 1:12 PM. Debut of the movie. One song out of 6 covered so far.

One can see that all four movies whose songs were covered on that day are unYIPPEED to this date and so they all are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

Out of the four movies, “Subhadra Haran”(1964) is one movie which made its debut on that day ten years ago and that song remains the only song from the movie to be covered in the blog till noqw !

“Subhadra Haran”(1964) was produced by Homi Wadia and directed by Datta Dharmadhikari for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Jayshree Gadkar, Suryakant, Arun Sarnaayik, Shahu Modak, Chitra, Raja Nene, Aruna,Balakram,
Vasant Shinde, Ram Tipnis,Jayashankar Danave, Master Dattaram, Vinay Sukale, Neelam, Kumar Deeghe, Angrey, Gaaikwaad, Bare, Shantaaram, Takle, Purushottam, Korega,Yadav, Bismilla, Mittoo miyaan, Bhoobhiyaa, Sulochana, Meera, Lakshmi, Leela, Sudhar Karlekar, Madhu Apte, Vasant Bhagwat etc in it.

As mentioned above, the movie had six songs in it. One song has been covered so far.

Here is the second song from “Subhadra Haran”(1964) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is the lyricist. Music is composed by Prabhakar Jog.

The song is picturised on Jaayshree Gadkar and Suryakant, playing Subhadra and Arjun respectively in this movie based on a sub plot of Mahabharat.

Details of the movie as well as the lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 128 # A Tribute to Anand Bakshi#
——————————————-—————————

Today 30th March 2021 (21.07.1930 – 30.03.2002) is the nineteenth Remembrance anniversary of Lyricist Anand Bakshi. As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1976’ movie ‘Mahaachor’ On this occasion .

‘Mahaachor-1976’ was directed by Narinder Bedi for ‘Dachi Films Pvt Ltd, Bombay’. It had Rajesh Khanna, Neetu Singh, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Manorama, Anwar Hussain, Krishna Dhawan, Manmohan, Rajan Haksar, Aruna Irani, Sonia Sahni (Special appearance), Master Lollipop, Viju Khote, Rajpal, Narbada Shankar, Jagdish Raj, Pinchoo Kapoor, Birbal, Pratima Devi, Rajnath, Moolchand, Ratnamala, Nishan Singh, Chandu, Dhanna, Mishrilal and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.10.1976.

This movie had six songs (as listed below) written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ae..ho..aa …mera naam yaaron mahaachor hai Kishore Kumar
02 Hindu hoon main naa musalmaan hoon Kishore Kumar
03 Sun Banto baat meri… naiyyo katni raat meri Anand Bakshi, Asha Bhonsle
04 Main tumse pyaar karti hoon Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 29.12.2011
05 Tu kya mujhe barbaad karega … Lata Mangeshkar
06 Meethhi meethhi ankhiyon se man bhar de Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle 18.07.2016

It can be seen that only two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. The second song appeared after a gap of a little more than four years and six months after the first song. Incidentally today’s song, the third one from this movie, is appearing after a gap of more than four years and eight months (almost about five years). The earlier two songs were posted on anniversaries of Rajesh Khanna. Today’s song is being posted on the ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of Anand Bakshi – the lyricist for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is lip-synced by Rajesh Khanna. From the picturization of this song it seems to be lip synced after a communal clash between followers of to religions, where this song serves to preach the values of communal harmony

As mentioned above lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

In the year ‘1976’ Anand Bakshi wrote lyrics for the following movies;

S. No Name of the movie Music Director
01 Aap Beetee Laxmikant-Pyarelal
02 Baalika Badhu R.D. Burman
03 Baarood S.D. Burman
04 Bairaag Kalyanji-Anandji
05 Bhanwar R.D. Burman
06 Bullet R.D. Burman

15 Mahaachor R.D. Burman
16 Mehboobaa R.D. Burman
17 Nehale Pe Dehalaa R.D. Burman
18 Tyaag S.D. Burman

The songs from ‘Kabhie-Kabhie’, ‘Dharam Karam’ and ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ stood in the first three ranks respectively in the annual list of ‘Binaca-Geetmala’ that year in 1976. As many as eleven songs written by Anand Bakshi figured in this list of ‘1976’. These included songs from ‘Sholay-1975’, ‘Mehboobaa-1976’, ‘Jaaneman-1976’, ‘Warrant-1975’, and ‘Charas-1976’ as well.

let us now listen to today’s song. It is sung by Kishore Kumar. R.D. Burman is the music director and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.

Aapas mein ladna sikhaaya aa
Tum ho khafaa

हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता हैं मैं इंसान हूँ
हिन्दू हूँ मैं ना मुसलमान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

जिसको पता हो बोले
मजहब का राज़ खोले
मैं जब पैदा हुआ था
लिखा हुआ नहीं था
चेहरे पे नाम मेरा
सबको सलाम मेरा
लोगों ने जो भी पुकारा
मैं बन गया बेचारा
बात समझ नहीं आती
किसका बनूं मैं साथी
तौबा है
तौबा है
मैं कितना नादान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

लिखा पढ़ा नहीं मैं
रखता हूँ इस पे यकीन मैं
मैंने कहीं सूना है
किसी शायर ने कहा है
मजहब नहीं सिखाता
आपस में बैर रखना
कहने का ये मतलब है
ये कौनसा मजहब है
जिसने तुम्हे भड़काया
आपस में लड़ना सिखाया
तुम हो खफा
तुम हो खफा और मैं हैरान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

ॐ नमः शिवाय
अल्लाह हो अकबर

मंदिर मस्जिद गुरुद्वारे
मंदिर मस्जिद गुरुद्वारे
मालिक के घर हैं सारे
ह से हिन्दू बना है
म से मुस्लिम बना है
ह और म से जानो
हम सब बने दीवानों
दो हाथ पाँव मेरे
दो हाथ पाँव तेरे
जब जिस्म हैं एक जैसे
फिर हम जुदा हैं कैसे
पहचानो मैं सच की पहचान हूँ
मजहब से अपने मैं अनजान हूँ
बस इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ
इतना पता है मैं इंसान हूँ

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 5
———————————————————

Welcome all to today’s post which is coming after a long gap of more than two years. In this series we discussed song by ‘Pancham-Rafi’ jodi. This series was basically inspired by an article on the blog ‘Pancham and Only Pancham’ – and the title of the article is ‘Tribute to Rafi Sahab on 28th Death Anniversary‘, published on Rafi Sb’s twenty-eighth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ on 31.07.2008. This article lists out the ‘variety of songs by the genius -Pancham-Rafi’ jodi based on different ‘genres’ of music.

When I came across the above article I thought to share this list with readers on our blog too. So, when I started this series in ‘2015’ with this song – “Jaag Devta Naag Devta – nine out of the twenty songs listed in the article were already posted on the blog. After that, I shared three more songs viz. – “Raqqaasa Mera Naam, Ae Sahib Sabko Salaam“, “Maine Kab Chaaha Ke Dulha Banoonga” and “Maakhan Chor Nandkishore Manmohan Ghanshyam Re“. The remaining songs were shared by our team members from time to time, and all these twenty songs are on the blog now.

Readers can go through the list in the article mentioned above. As the songs in this list were already getting posted on the blog, I had in the post for the song “Maine Kab Chaaha Ke Dulha Banoonga” mentioned that I will include some more songs in this series, not on the basis of music-genres, but these ‘special songs’ are from the category of being ‘the only Rafi song in a movie where music was composed by RD Burman.

Today’s song is one such song and it is from the movie ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980).

This film was directed by Danny Dengzongpa for Prithvi Pictures, Bombay. The star cast includes Rajesh Khanna, Kim (new discovery), Shashikala, AK Hangal, Suresh Oberoi, Lalita Pawar, Tamanna, Aruna Irani, Danny Dengzongpa, Om Shivpuri, Shobha Khote, Jagdeep, Mukri, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Madhu Malhotra, Shashi Kiran, Manmauji, Prakash, Lalita Kumari, Brahm Bharadwaj, Ranjeet Sood, Jugnu, Chand Usmani, Moolchand, Gopal Saigal, Master Chirag and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.08.1980 with restricted viewing (Adults Only) certificate.

This movie had six songs, all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed to music by RD Burman. Here is the list of the songs of this movie,

Today’s song, the only Rafi song, in this movie is lip-synced on screen by actor Jagdeep.

Today 29th March 2021 is eighty-second birth anniversary (born on 29.03.1939) of actor Jagdeep. He passed away last year on 08th July 2020. As a tribute to him we will listen and enjoy this entertaining song from this movie. The song is ‘joie-de-vivre’ where other than Jagdeep we can see Mohan Choti, Bhagwan, Mukri, Birbal, Gopal Saigal and others also performing with him.

Also wishing herewith is ‘Happy Holi’ to all. Though the song is not a ‘holi’ song but ‘holi’ celebrations can be enjoyed this year ‘in house’ only – with playing this song and ‘taking a jig’ on this vibrant Pancham composition.

“The Right And the wrong”(1970) was written, produced and directed by Harbans (Micky) Kumar for Deluxe Films Corporation. It was the first Carribean (West Indian) colour movie, produced in Trinidad and Tobago, a country with large population of Indian origin emigrants who left India and settled in that as well as neighbouring countries (such as Guyana, Suriname etc) a few centuries ago. Many West Indian Cricketers with Indian sounding names are descendents of those Indian origin people. Names like Sonny Ramadhin, Rohan Kanhai, Alvin Kalicharan, Shivnaraine Chanderpal, Ravi Rampal, Darren Ganga, Ramnaresh Sarwan are familiar to cricket lovers.

“The Right And the wrong”(1970) had Ralph Maharaj, Angela Seukaran, Elain Le Gare, Frant Raiter,Francis ashlby, Gloria Kim david, Holly Betaudier, Jasse mcdonald,Mark mathews, Rasheed Pier khan, Susan Hawkins, Tony Maharaj,Yusuf Ali etc in it.

This movie was set in the era hen these emigrants from India were used by white people as contract labours. The movie was in English but it had two Hindi songs in it. Some Hindi movie names were roped in to create these songs.

One such song is already represented in the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh ! This song (and for that matter the movie itself) was a big hit among Indian origin people of West Indies. If one is not aware, one would consider that song as from an Indian movie. This song, O mere hamraahi kyun tera man ghabraaye was discussed in the blog on 2 January 2009, more than 12 years ago !

It turns out that the second Hindi song from this movie was a Holi festival song ! Today (29 march 2021) is the festival of Holi. These are unusual days for India and the world, when extreme caution is advisable while celebrating festivals. On this occasion, here is this “unusual” Holi song from an English language Carribean movie.

If the earlier song was sung by Mukesh, then this song is sung by Manna Dey. The song also has male and female chorus. Thakur Chhabra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vedpal Verma.

Lyrics of this song and other details ere sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe Holi.

Total upto 1973 1169 movies 3149 3798 2640 928 179 69

It can be seen from the table of 1973 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 138 songs in 60 movies released in 1973.

92 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies to 1973 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 46 songs that are yet to be covered.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 34 movies of 1973 are already covered in the blog. So 46 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 26 movies of 1973 are still available to be discussed.

Alphabetically the first movie of 1973 that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to be discussed is “Agni Rekha”(1973).

“Agni Rekha”(1973) was directed by Mahesh Kaul for Mel Kaul Films, Bombay. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Shadra, Bindu, Durga Khote, Helen, Asrani, Sajjan, Aarti, Lalita Kumari, Janki Das, Chandrima Bhaduri, Smita, Dinesh Sharma, Yashodhara Katju, K S Sengar, Afzal Khan, Radheshyam, Surendra Kaul, Pal Mahendra, Bunty, Kumud Tripathi, Harindranath Chattopadhyay etc, ith special appearances by Chaand Usmani and Suresh Chatwal in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog so far. Lata Mangeshkar has sung in four of these songs. One song from the movie (which had Lata Mangeshkar’s voice in it) has been covered in the past.

Here is a Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Agni Rekha”(1973). This song is penned by Kavi Pradeep. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song on a lady who could be the leading lady of the movie, viz Sharda. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. One can see Sanjeebv Kumar among the audience.

This is a song that I had heard during its days ithout being aware of its details. The song subsequently got forgotten ith time. This song is undoubtedly a forgotten gem.


Song-Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari main kaise uthhaaun banwaari(Agni Rekha)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Kavi Pradeep, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari
ho o o
Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari
tum to ho brij desh ke raja
tum to ho brij desh ke raja
main ik durbal naari
Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari

halki phulki preet ki matki
ho to vo main uthhaa loon
jis gaagar mein prem ka saagar
us ko kaise sambhaaloon
dhoondh lo jaa ke ae
ho o
dhoondh lo jaa ke kisi panghat par
aur koi panihaari ee
Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari
ho o
Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari
main kaise uthhaun banwaari

Today, March 29th 2021, we are celebrating Holi, the festival of joy and merry-making albeit in a subdued manner due to COVID-19 guidelines, banning public and private celebrations of Holi.

During Holi, the most popular genre of Hindustani semi-classical music is Hori which, in Brajbhasha means ‘happiness’. (I understand that in Brajbhasha region, people pronounce holi as ‘hori’). The ‘hori’ songs are written mostly in Brajbhasha or Awadhi. Obviously, hori singing is popular in Uttar Pradesh and a part of Bihar. The joy and merry-making mood come in the background of the expectation of a good Rabi harvest. The blooming of flowers in the spring season (Phagun) and the mustard fields with yellow flowers create a colourful atmosphere in North India. The mood of the rejoice among the farmers and villagers create the spirit behind the Holi celebration which has, over a period of time, percolated all over the country.

The tradition of playing with colours during Holi is linked to Radha-Krishna Leela (divine play) especially in Brajbhasha region of Uttar Pradesh. Hori singing reflects Krishna’s revelries and playing pranks with Radha. Hori is generally rendered in Thumri style and conventionally, the song will have a mukhda and an antara. One of the various names of Krishna such as Shyam, Kaanha, Nandlala, Banwari, Baanke-Bihari etc would appear either in mukhda or antara part of the hori song.

In the Awadh region of Uttar Pradesh and the Mithila region of Bihar and Jharkhand (also some part of Nepal), hori singing also centres around Lord Ram. The earliest recorded hori song which I have come across is ‘Jamuna tath Ram khelen hori’ by Janaki Bai of Allahabad (Chappan Churi), recorded in 1910 which is a ‘Ram Hori’ song. Pandit Chunnilal Mishra has rendered even ‘Shiv Ki Hori’.

The traditional hori songs are based on the folk singing of the particular region and are thus embedded with the rural atmosphere. I guess, over the years, the folk songs rendered during the holi festival became so popular that some of the Hindustani classical vocalists adapted the traditional hori songs in their concerts, rendering mostly in the form of Thumris. On the video sharing platforms, some of the hori thumris rendered by Ustad Faiyyaz Khan, Kesarbai Kerkar, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Pandit Kumar Gandharv, Begum Akhtar, Shobha Gurtu, Girija Devi, Siddheswari Devi etc are available.

The popularity of hori songs attracted Hindi films when talkies came in 1931. The hori songs in Hindi films have now been adopted as holi festival songs, written and sung in typical Bollywood style. There are hundreds of holi songs picturised in Hindi films. As of now, we have on our Blog as many as 62 songs tagged as ‘Holi Songs’. On the basis of the movie-wise listing of the songs available on-line, the credit for the first traditional hori song used in Hindi film was ‘mope daar gayo saari rang ki gagar’ in ‘Ghar Ki Laxmi’ (1931). Probably, in the film, this song may have been rendered by Rampyari, the then famous singer-actor-dancer whose name I found in the star-cast. Unfortunately, neither the film nor the gramophone records of the songs from this film are available. It may be noted that in the early years of talkies, many film songs were not released on the gramophone records.

Luckily, I got a rare mp3 clip of the traditional hori song with the same mukhda as in ‘Ghar Ki Laxmi’ (1931) in the film ‘Comrades’ (1939) which I am presenting on the occasion of the Holi festival. The song is rendered by Wahidan Bai, the mother of Nimmi. The lyrics are traditional but it has been attributed to Dr. Safdar Aah Sitapuri. Probably, he may have changed a few words. For example, in my view, the line ‘kaisa dhokha diya’ seems to have been added in the traditional lyrics as these are in pure Hindi. The song is set to music by Anil Biswas.

The song is a typical hori thumri having a mukhda and an antara with the name of Krishna appearing as ‘Shyam’ in the antara. Being trained in Hindustani classical singing, Wahidan Bai has tendered this hori thumri with elaborations and ornamentations. It is worthwbhile to note that as to how elaborately she has rendered the line ‘bin rang daare jaane na doongi’ with ornamentations. The ‘murki’ element in the song while singing jaa….ne na doongi..ee, jaa…..ne na doongi..eeeee is my favourite.

This song becomes the earliest ‘holi song’ from Hindi films to be covered in the Blog though are a few more ‘holi songs’ pertaining to the Hindi films were released prior to 1939.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 127 # Aatish-1979#
——————————————-—————————

I had mentioned in one of my earlier post on the blog, that nowadays (since Nov’2020 end) I got to listen to the radio utilizing my morning and evening time of about an hour or so while commuting towards my workplace (in the morning) and while returning back (in the evening). And normally I tune in to ‘Vivid Bharati’ only.

This exercise has given me an opportunity to listen to many songs from yesteryears and also songs from new movies. The joy and excitement of ‘the next song to be played’ is always there as on radio we cannot play songs of our choice.

Today’s song is one such song. hen I was listening to it, it sounded familiar but then I had not attentively listened to the name of the movie while the broadcast was on. The refrain ‘salaam salaam salaam’ in this song sounded familiarbut I could not put a finger to it. So, I looked for the details of this song.

This song turned out to be from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Aatish’.

That reminded me that I had watched this movie in the ‘summer vacations’ at Akola with my brothers and cousins. But I do not remember anything about the story of this movie and other details. Only thing that is still fresh in my mind is that this was a ‘Jeetendra Movie’. 😊

I looked for the video of this song and found that this song is performed by Neetu Singh (and I must say she is looking very beautiful in this song). Jeetendra, the object of her craving, is also present in the picturization of this song.

“Aatish-1979” was directed by Ambarish Sangal for ‘M.K. Enterprises, Bombay’. It had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Rinku, Dheeraj, Leena Das, Om Shivpuri, Mukri, Mumtaz Begam, Master Raju, Nirupa Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar (in special appearance), Brahm Bharadwaj, Subhash Kanwal, Kamal Deep, Ranveer Raj, Chandru, Kishan, Ashok Saksena, Raj Kumar, Ram Narayan and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.02.1979.

There were six songs in this movie written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ladke ke bhes mein ladki hoon Asha Bhonsle, Chorus

05 Babu manejara ve he babu, manejara ve Lata, Rafi, Chorus
06 Kahin naam na apnaa likh dena … Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata, Bhushan Mehta, Mohd Rafi, chorus

Only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 13.08.2011. So, one can notice that this movie is about to complete its ‘ten-year’ run on the blog within next five months. 😊

let us now listen to today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and lip-synced on screen by Neetu Singh. As mentioned above lyrics are by Ravindra Jain who has also the music director for this movie.

Today’s song is from the film Durga-1939, a film made by the prestigious Bombay Talkies. The film was directed by the studio’s German Director – Franz Osten. Some readers may wonder, how a German could direct a Hindi film, without knowing or understanding the language ? For such readers, let me tell you that Franz Osten directed not just 1 or 2 but a total of 16 films for Bombay Talkies, from its beginning. Till the end, he never learnt Hindi language ! He was not the lone German , but there was a whole team of Germans who worked in Bombay Talkies !

Not only in Bombay talkies, but Germans contributed to Indian Cinema elsewhere too and in different segments of filmmaking. Let us take a quick look at Germans in Indian Cinema, in general. Germany had a very good name in India during the olden days i.e. during the early part of the last century. I remember my Grandfather ( who expired in 1975 at the age of 91 years) always praising Germany for so many things. In India,all things German, were considered to be the Best- even better than the Vilayati or the British things !

Very few people know that Indian Cinema had a little known connection with the rise of Hitler in Germany in 1932-33. A group of men , engaged in Cinema in Germany, flocked to India in the 30’s and played a vital role in Indian Cinema and the arts of that time. After Hitler took over Germany in 1933, the German Cine Studios’ glory days were over and they were turned into Nazi Propaganda Machines !

It was at this time that several of its men left the studio and arrived in India, and contributed during the Indian cinema’s formative years.

The foremost among them is Frantz Osten, a German whom Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani met at the UFA when they went to train there (they worked with Lang and Marlene Dietrich). Osten had already been directing films for the couple since 1925, when he made Light of Asia for them from Germany.

In 1934, he came to India and the next year, after Rai founded ‘ Bombay Talkies ‘ the legendary film studio in Malad, that now lies in ruins, Osten directed its first film.

He went on to direct the famous Devika Rani-Ashok Kumar starrer, Achhut Kanya, without much knowledge of Hindi. The film, which featured the song “Main ban ki chiriya”, was shot by Joseph Wirsching; the sets were designed by Karl von Spreti and the laboratory was headed by Zolle, Osten’s team of UFA ex-members who worked for Rai’s state-of-the-art studio.

Osten and his fellow Germans directed 16 films for Rai. It was a remarkable feat for people who knew little Hindi ‘ mistaking the word “bulbul” once for a pair of bulls. While in Bombay, he became a member of the Nazi Party (1936). He was interned by the British at the outbreak of WW2 in 1939, while shooting his last film there, Kangan. Released and allowed to return to Germany (1940).

“It’s not clear if they had anything to do with the Nazi ideology, either way,” said film historian Amrit Gangar.

“If they did, it did not show in their films. But there were two other people who almost certainly migrated to India because of the persecution of Jews.”

They were Walter Kauffman, a scholar and composer interested in Oriental music, and Wilhelm Haas, a writer and a friend of Franz Kafka.

“Both were Jews, and Haas came to India because of Kauffman, who went on to found the Bombay Chamber Music Society,” Gangar added.

Kauffman arrived in 1934 after meeting director-producer Mohan Bhavnani at the UFA (where V. Shantaram also did a stint).

“Haas was in Czechoslovakia, but left the country for India just after Hitler’s invasion,” Gangar said.

Kauffman, Haas and Bhavnani worked together in Premnagar (1940), Naushad’s first film as music director. Kauffman composed the background score; Haas wrote the screenplay.

“It is debatable, but Kauffman is probably also the person behind the All India Radio signature tune. Haas was a member of the Indian chapter of PEN,” Gangar said. Haas also wrote the script for Bhavnani’s Jhooti Sharam (1939).

The story of Paul Zils ( 1-6-1915 to 30-3-1979 ) stands out, though. Zils, believed to be a Nazi sympathizer, turned up in India under strange circumstances: he was bound for Indonesia in a steamer that got torpedoed by an Indian naval ship during World War II and he was taken prisoner.

After his release, because of his film experiences, the leadership of the sales department in Ezra Mir led government documentary production company, called him to join Information films of India. End of October 1945, he came to Bombay and started his work. In March 1959 he returned to Germany.

As the studio system came to an end and individual producers took over, the days of the Germans in Indian cinema were over. Many, including Osten, went back to Germany. Set designer Spreti was appointed German ambassador to Guatemala and was later shot dead by terrorists. Josef Virsching-the Cinematographer, however, stayed back in India till his death in 1967. He did few more Hindi films too.

Most of the others remained associated with the film world abroad.

Paul Zils directed 3 Dev Anand films, according to the documents. Hindustan Hamara-50 and Zalzala-52 are found in HFGK, but the third film called ‘ Shabash”, though listed in 1949, gives no details, except the film name. ( Information adapted from the book ” Walter Kauffman” by Amit Gangar, with thanks and my notes.)

It’s not just the Germans alone, but there was an American who contributed to Tamil Cinema as a Director, during the same period i.e. 1935 to 1950. He directed not just 14 Tamil films….without understanding the language….but also a Hindi film, ‘ Meera’ in 1947…..without knowing Hindi language ! On top of it this Hindi film featured the legendary Carnatic Classical singer M.S.Subbulakshmi. This American’s name was Ellis R. Dungan (11-5-1909 to 1-12-2001).

When Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani decided to establish a modern, well equipped cinema studio in Bombay, they started getting the right persons for different departments of filmmaking. While in London, he had met Niranjan Pal (son of the great patriot Bipin Chandra Pal)-a writer of stage dramas and films. They became friends. Soon after Himanshu Rai, Niranjan also returned to India. Rai called Niranjan to Bombay to work as a writer on a very attractive salary. He arrived and he wrote stories, screen plays and dialogues for the first 8 films of Bombay Talkies. He was assisted by J S Casshyap, Najam Naqvi, and S J Hasan. Their films used simple, day to day Hindi language. Prabhat Hindi films had a profound Marathi tilt, and New Theatre Hindi films were all round and round words- too much bookish Hindi. Naturally, Bombay Talkies Hindi was acceptable in the Hindi belt easily.

After Devika Rani’s elopement episode, Himanshu Rai’s male ego and Bangla Bhadralok prestige was shattered and he had lost his peace of mind. Later he also suffered from tantrums. Once Niranjan Pal wrote an article in an outside magazine, which Rai did not like and he quarrelled with Niranjan on this. They stopped talking. Then one day, when Niranjan was about to go home in his car, Rai came running and holding the car door, started arguing with Niranjan. Finally Niranjan left-never to come back to Bombay talkies again !

Niranjan Pal was one of the very important members of the team. He had written stories of the early films. One of his hits was Achhut kanya also. He proved to be a master in recreating Village atmosphere. After he left, Himanshu Rai immediately called Saradindu Bandopadhyaya from Calcutta. He was the one who had created the famous film and TV character Byomkesh Bakshi. He joined Bombay Talkies and wrote stories of 7 films.

Film Durga’s story was also by him. This is what “Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema ” says about the film Durga…..” Rural melodrama about Durga (Devika Rani), an adolescent child of nature, living with her aged mother Heera. Unable to get the medicine required to prevent her mother’s death, one misfortune after another befalls the heroine in spite of the sympathies of the newly arrived village doctor, Jawahar (Shukul). In the absence of Niranjan Pal, the studio’s main scenarist and author of its best-known rural dramas (Achhut Kanya, Janmabhoomi, both 1936), the tale reduces itself to a purely familial narrative. It is nevertheless a key production in Devika Rani’s self-projection of urbane charm clothed in primal innocence. Osten followed it with Leela Chitnis’s first big film, Kangan (1939). Wadkar was promoted to lead actress again opposite Shukul in her next big film, Navjeevan (1939).”

Today’s song is sung by Devika Rani and Rama Shukul. With this song, film Durga-39 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Forgotten Songs of Bappi Lahiri – Song # 1

A lot of water has flowed, in terms of my health, since my last post, almost three years ago. Two/Three other conditions have been diagnosed (which are being treated), by which the general health has taken a back seat. However, the emotional and mental spirit has been great, due to the immense love and support from my family and friends, including my fellow contributors to this blog. However, I have not been able to bring myself to write my new post. Today, after some effort, I have taken the task of writing my next post.

With today’s post I am starting a new series called “”Forgotten Songs of Bappi Lahiri”. However, I will limit my song selections from his early movies. I will also be sticking to my inclination for rare songs.

The song I present today is from the first Hindi movie with which Bappi Da started his successful journey in Hindi films. Nannha Shikari (1973) was written and directed by Shomu Mukharjee (actress Tanuja’s husband and Actress Kajol’s father). The movie was produced by R L Desai for the banner “Mukharjee Bros, Bombay”.

“Nannha Shikari” starred Deb Mukharjee, Tanuja, Master Bunty Behl, Jairaj, Ifteqaar, Laxmi Chaya, Manik Dutt, etc. The songs were penned by Yogesh, S. H. Bihari and Gauhar Kanpuri and composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Although I had seen the movie, I do not remember it. But according to the web the movie seems to be an adventure filled family drams. The plot is that of a little child being on the run as he is the only eye witness to the murder of a judge by a dacoit. The kid comes across a series of adventures before he is rescued from the hands of the dacoit and the ferocious animals in the jungle.

Today’s song “Tu Meri Manzil Main To Rahi Hoon Sanam” is sung by Kishore Kumar with Asha Bhosle and penned by Gauhar Kanpuri. I hope you will enjoy this song which Bappi Da composed when he was just 21 years of age.

This song can be classified as a Cycle song, amongst others.
