Blog Day : 4972 Post No. : 16847 Movie Count : 4582

I have in my earlier posts mentioned that nowadays I am getting to listen ‘radio’ for at least ‘two to two and half’ hours every day. And mainly I listen the programmes on Vividh Bharati only.

So, in the morning time it is part of ‘ham hai raahi pyaar ke’ and ‘Bharat ki goonj’ and evening times it is part of or sometimes full edition of ‘Shaam sindoori’, ‘Sangeet sarita’, ‘Jaymala’ etc.
Now that is the daily schedule since 2nd November’2020. This has given me the opportunity to listen variety of songs from the yesteryears and even the songs from recent times. I have come across many unheard songs and some beautiful songs even from the eighties and nineties. I will try to share them as and when possible.

For today’s post I am presenting a song from the 1987 movie ‘Aakhiri Nishchay
’, which I got to listen in a program on ‘Vividh Bharti’.

Though many sources mention this movie’s name as ‘Nishchay’ too. I think the ‘Nishchay-1986’ was later released in ‘1987’ with the title as ‘Aakhiri Nishchay’.
While searching more details for this movie first I landed to the movie name ‘Nishchay’ and later it was cleared, that it is ‘Aakhiri Nishchay’. Though ‘vinyl’ images for ‘Nishchay’ (not to be confused he same name movie ‘Nishchaiy’ of 1992) are also available. (Though ‘Hindi Filmography’ 1986-2013 doesn’t mention any such note for this movie).

‘Nishchay-1986’ or ‘Aakhiri Nishchay-1987’ was directed by K.C. Agarwal for ‘B. Govinda Productions’.

Jairam Chawla was the producer of this movie.

It had Shekhar Suman, Sadhna (south), Seema Vaz, Satish Kaul, Surendra Pal, Sudhir Dalvi, Yunus Parvez, Bali Grover, Ratan Allakh, Jay Chawla, Raja Duggal, Raj Kishore, Asha Sharma, Anil Chaddha and others. The movie also featured a dog – Jackie.

As mentioned in ‘Hindi Filmography (1986-2013)’ this movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.12.1987.

Almost all the sources mentions that this movie had four songs in it. Voices of Mahendra Kapoor, Anup Jalota, Hemalata and Susheel Kumar are used in these songs.

Lyrics for all the four songs were written by Ravindra Jain who is also the music director for this movie.

When today’s song was playing on VVB I liked it very much because of the tune, words and singing of this song which is very beautiful, and this is a ‘sweet’ ‘romantic’ duet. This song is sung by Hemlata and Susheel Kumar.

As mentioned above lyrics for this song have been written by Ravindra Jain who is also the music composer for this movie.

And today 28th February’2022 is the seventy-eighth birth anniversary of music-director, lyricist Ravindra Jain (28 February 1944 – 9 October 2015). On this occasion we pay our tributes to Ravindra Jain and listen to this song written and composed by him.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs and other details.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

With this song ‘Aakhiri Nishchay-1987’ makes its debut on the blog …

SNo Title of the Song Lyricist Singer/s Posted On the blog

04 Thhithum… arey kahaan gayaa kidhar gayaa Anjaan Kanchan, Baby Shivangi

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie in my childhood with either my brothers & cousins, or my uncles. I had a big nostalgia of the song ‘raahi o raahi’ from this movie, and when I became a member of this blog, I had shared this song then in 2013. The video of this song was not available then. However, in the recent years the songs of this movie and the movie itself has been made available on internet by enthusiastic music and film lovers. I had in my memory a scene from this movie and that is about some snowy mountains and Sunil Dutt carrying his brothers on his shoulders. I have to watch this movie again to clear my doubt (of some ‘miracle’ happening in the movie?), I am leaving that to be discussed in a separate post in the future.

Today 27th February’2022 is the twenty-fifth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (1 January 1924 – 27 February 1997) of ‘Shyamlal Babu Rai’ who is popularly know to us as ‘lyricist Indeevar’. As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from ‘Himaalay Se Oonchaa-1975’, which will be the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog after 01.06.2013 (when the first song was posted). Though lyrics of the today’s song were also noted around the same time in 2013 it somehow remains to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar and it is lip synced by Mallika Sarabhai. Sunil Dutt is also seen in the picturization of this song.

Music for this movie is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. And as mentioned above lyrics for today’s song is written by Indeevar.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

Today’s song is from the film Phir Milenge-1942.

The film was made by Minerva Movietone. In 1942, WWII was on its peak. Till that time, the Germans were on the attack, but from 1942 onwards, their decline had started and by 1945 end, both Japan and Germany had lost the war and surrendered to the Allies. However, the damage caused by the war situation continued for a few more years and like all other industries the film industry too took time to normalise its set up.

The war affected the film industry mainly in 3 ways. Firstly, the essential commodities like Petrol, Sugar etc went into shortage and the Government put several items under ” Rationing”. The list also included a shortage of Raw Film, the main requirement for making movies. Many restrictions like the length of the film etc were implemented. To rationalise and to take advantage of the powerful media like films, the Government gave additional raw film to producers on ‘ controlled rates ‘, provided they made a film with a story of helping the government war efforts. It was called a “propaganda” film.

Major film producers make a film or two such films to take advantage of the concession and allotment. During this period many such ‘ War effort’ films were made. Some examples are, Master Vinayak made ” Badi Maa”-1945 with Nurjahan and others ( including Lata and Asha). Acharya Atre’s Navyug films made the film ” Panna”-1944 with Jairaj and Geeta Nizami and film ” Phir Milenge”-1942 was made by Minerva Movietone.

The second impact of War, on the Indian Film Industry was that considerable clandestine Black Money entered the film making and many new, so called ‘Producers’, with bags of money were seen making films. Although more money became available to make more films, the directors had to entertain the whims of the producers about selection of actors or changes in the story. Many such producers started to ‘Direct’ the films. This lowered the quality of films, but brought in many new artistes and provided work to more people.

The third effect of the War was the most damaging. Since the new producers and directors did not have their own studios, they started alluring the studio employed artistes by giving more money per film. They hired studios for shooting films. This devastated the ” Studio Culture”, because artistes started “Freelancing”, without getting attached to a studio. This crumbled the studios on one hand and on the other hand the cost of engaging artistes escalated many folds. Before the war, films could be made in 75000 to 1 lakh rupees, now films needed 1 to 2 lakhs to make one film. It went on increasing and today, making a film in the 2020’s decade one needs atleast 40 to 50 crores per film.

Film Phir Milenge-42 had Sardar Akhtar, Sadiq Ali (later on called The Prince of Minerva), Meena, K N Singh, Menaka and a host of others. The film was directed by Sohrab Modi.

Sohrab Modi’s rise from a Stage Actor to a very popular and successful studio owner, actor-famous for his Dialogue Delivery of very long sentences, producer and director is very interesting. With small successes and big failures, he learned the art of giving what the audience liked in those days. However, one drawback of such people is that they can not and do not change as per the need of the times and become obsolete, ending their careers pathetically.

Famous for making large scale films, powerful dialogues and films with a lot of dramatics, Modi could not cope up with the changing tastes of the audience from the 30’s to the 60’s. The audience changed with 2 generations, but Sohrab Modi’s Minerva Movietone could not change their success formula which was not working now unlike earlier times ! May be he never wanted to change-due to self admiration or king size Ego !!

Minerva was the last big studio and film maker in the list of eminent studios established in the 30’s. When Minerva Movietone was established in 1936, there were already studios like Madon Theatres (est.1919), Imperial (1926), Ranjit Studio (1929), Prabhat (1929), Sagar Movietone (1929), New Theatres (1931), Wadia movietone (1931) and Bombay Talkies(1933). Therefore Minerva was the youngest studio. It is to its credit that it survived with dignity for a longer time-and actively too- than its predecessors and competitors, who perished, some tragically, from 1938 (Madon) to Ranjit (1963).

Sohrab Modi was a colossal personality. leela Chitnis,actress who had the experience in working for films made in different centers like Bombay, Poona, Kolhapur, madras, Calcutta,and Lahore writes in her Marathi autobiography ” चंदेरी दुनियेत “, about all major studios. About Minerva, she writes -“The atmosphere in Minerva was very playful, but once Sohrab Modi entered the premises, everyone used to be quiet and only did his work. He was a taskmaster and a great disciplinarian. he did not like people laughing or whiling their work time. it felt like a Jailor taking rounds in the jail. The atmosphere became suffocating sometimes. ”

I liked him and his films. However I always felt that Sohrab Modi was a polished, educated and a white collared version of Dara Singh. I liked his dialogue delivery style. Later I shifted my liking to Raajkumar ‘Jaani’.

In the cast we see a new name Eruch Tarapore. I was keen to know about this actor because of his strange name. It was a typical Parsee name. I searched quite a lot. Ultimately one day I accidentally came across a site about Parsee artistes. I forgot to note down the name and URL address of that site and till today I did not find it ever again. Anyway I found this information about Eruch Tarapore on this site.

Eruch Tarapore was a distant relative of Sohrab Modi and he worked only in Modi’s films. He worked in 16 films, right from Modi’s first film Hamlet-35 up to 1948. Eruch sang one song each in 3 films, Meetha zehar-38, Jailor-38 and Phir milenge-43. He died in 1948.

Today’s song is sung by Sardar Akhtar and chorus. The song was written by Pt. Sudarshan.

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#7 – A tribute to Bappi Da!)

Bappi Da!

16th February 2022 was another sad day for the Hindi Film Music lovers after the news of Bappi Da’s passing away came. Just ten days back we had lost ‘sur-samraadni’ Lata Mangeshkar on 06.02.2022.

Bappi Lahiri passed away at the age of sixty-nine. Nobody expected that, atleast for me it was a shocking news. I had missed the earlier news of his being hospitalized and he was there at the hospital for 29 days, and then was released for his home. But he had to rush back to the hospital again, as Bappi Da’s condition deteriorated.

Whatever be the reason, nobody was ready for this news. Just couple of months back (or less than that, I am forgetting) he was there at ‘Zee TV Sa re ga ma’ show. I had watched this program. Bappi Da’s grandson was also there on this show.

I may not be a great fan of Bappi Lahiri, but I am big fan of his music, particularly some of his songs of ‘pre disco era’ and some songs from ‘disco era’ and post ‘disco-era’ too.

I specifically do not like his music for some Jitendra movies like ‘Mawaali’, ‘Justice Chaudhary’ and films in the same ‘genre’. At that time, I felt his music from these movies irritating too, wherever songs from these movies were played.

But then I was only fifteen-sixteen then and had not listen much of his ‘pre-disco’ era songs and songs in between because I did not paid attention to his music then. As I had mentioned in my earlier post here, I lost the track of his music later or 1985-1986 onwards.

Before that I liked songs of ‘Disco Dancer’, ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, some songs of ‘Himmatwala’ etc etc.

Later, as I grow, I got to listen many of his pre- ‘Himmatwala’ phase songs. I liked many of them. Some of them were regularly played at our (group of Indians in Kenya) week-end parties as I had mentioned earlier here. I am reproducing some text of my earlier write-up on him here. (I hope readers will not mind me of repeating of this text here. But this background is necessary to know how the music of Bappi Lahiri grow on me as years passed) …

Bappi Lahiri was born on 27th November’1952 in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal to Aparesh Lahiri and Bansari Lahiri who themselves were accomplished Bengali singers and musicians. Both his parents also came from Jalpaiguri.

He made his debut as a singer in a Bengali movie ‘Daadu’ in 1972 and if we considered this first assignment of him in Bangla movie ‘Daadu’ which came to him in 1969 (as told to Anupama Chopra in an interview), this year in 2019 he has completed fifty years in his film-music journey. He has many records on his name and have been conferred by many awards till now. And he is still going on – rocking.

The first Hindi movie he composed music was ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’ which came to him in 1971 and this movie was released in 1973.
I was never a big Bappi Lahiri fan, but I was actively considering writing about Bappi Lahiri compositions. The reason behind this was that here in our camp, we were listening to many of his songs (both as a composer and singer) during our regular parties and I realised that these songs were liked by many, and they all have good music, particularly the ‘beats’ which people danced and enjoyed a lot. These were mainly the songs from his ‘disco era’.

One of my bosses particularly loved ‘Jeele le jeele le aayo aayo jeele le’ every time ‘bhaai ye gaana zaroor bajaana’. On one or two occasions when he was asking us to play some ‘English’ or ‘Kenyan’ music I brought him back to the songs of ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, ‘Disco Dancer’ or played other Bappi Lahiri songs.

‘Bambai se aaya mare dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khaatir-1977’ was perhaps the song that first introduced me with the music of Bappi Lahiri. This song was very popular then and was played frequently on radio and loudspeakers or in orchestras.

Subsequently I got introduced to songs from ‘Pyaara Dushman-1980’, ‘Armaan-1981’, ‘Waardaat-1981’, ‘Namak Halaal-1982’ etc.

I liked the songs from ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, though I had not watched these movies until now.
I also liked the songs of ‘Disco Dancer-1982’ very much, and I specially remember them because they were played by my friends during the summer vacation of 1983 after our 10th board exams were over.

Bappi Lahiri had composed some nice songs in his pre- ‘disco era’ that I was not aware of. Subsequently I have discovered a few such songs and I have shared a few of them on the blog.

For example, songs like ‘Ye naina ye kaajal’ from ‘Dil Se Mile Dil-1978’, ‘Sainyya bina ghar soona’ from ‘Aangan Ki Kali-1979’ etc. were shared by me long back.
After ‘Disco Dancer’ it was ‘Himmatwaala-1983’ which I watched with my younger brothers & cousins in the summer vacations (1983) and I liked few of its songs if not all.

Then there were movies where Bappi Lahiri composed songs for the movies from ‘South’ banners where Jeetendra was the main hero. From these movies I remember, ‘Jaani Dost-1983’, ‘Haisiyat-1984’, ‘Tohfaa-1984’ and of course I like all songs from ‘Sharaabi-1984’.

I also liked some of the songs from ‘Naukar Biwi Ka-1983’ which I watched during my stay at Akola (1983-1985).

I didn’t like the songs from ‘Mawaali-1983’. I liked one or two songs from ‘Justice Chaudhary-1983’. I did not watch these movies.

During 1983-85 when I was studying in 11th-12th standard disco music was ruling the charts in India. But I was more inclined to the golden era of HFM then and Rajesh Khanna movies, so I lost the track of many Bappi Lahiri songs and may be even not liking some of them.

I had then given a list of movies where Bappi Lahiri composed the songs from the years 1971-1980.

During the preparation of this list, I came across many movies of this period where Bappi Da had created some musical gems, that failed to get popular as the movies failed at the box office.

Like, when I came across the movie name ‘Ek Ladki Badnaam Si’ which was not released, and looked for its songs, I found that already one of its songs has been posted in a detailed post on Bappi Lahiri by Sudhir ji.

Today’s song is also one those forgotten gems. It is from the ‘1977’ movie ‘Paapi’. I had shared a song from this movie earlier.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Lata Mangeshkar passed away on 06.02.2022. Bappi Da had expressed his grief and paying his tribute he had posted his photo with Lata Mangeshkar when he was a child (4 years old) and was sitting in the lap of Lata Mangeshkar. Bappi Da wrote the word “Maa!” only. That is enough to tell us how emotional he was on the loss of Lata Mangeshkar.

Today’s movie “Paapi-1977” had four Lata solos which I had mentioned in my earlier post. And I presented a song which I found little familiar to me.

At that time, I had also said that I will listen the other songs from this movie. But that did not happen. Now, when I thought to pen this write-up as a tribute to Bappi Lahiri, I want to present a Lata Mangeshkar song only and so I go through the songs of this movie.

And I was surprised. How I missed this ‘wonderful’ song earlier and I also do not remember to have heard it anywhere. The year ‘1977’ was Bappi Da’s ‘bambai se aaya mera dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khatir’ making news and was being played everywhere. That was the only Bappi Da song which made it to the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala of 1977’.

There were five movies in 1977 which had music composed by Bappi Lahiri.

From the nine songs in this movie Lata Mangeshkar has sung as many as four solo songs in this movie.

Rafi Saab had one solo, while Mahendra Kapoor had two solo songs, and Ranu Mukherji and Lorna had sung one duet song in this movie.

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. This movie which had a star cast like Sanjeev Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Zeenat Amaan, Reena Roy, Prem Chopra, Padma Khanna, Madan Puri, Iftekhar, etc. must be an interesting movie to watch, I think.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song from ‘Paapi-1977’ which is performed on screen by Padma Khanna, and we can see Sanjeev Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Reena Roy, and many others in the picturization of this song …

Lata Mangeshkar is the singer of this song penned by Kulwant Jani, and composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song …

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 23
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (26 February 2012) saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Reamrks
5531 Ban ban ke mit gayin hain taqdeer ki lakeeren Gauna (1950) 4 songs covered out of 7 so far

5536 Hazaar baaten kahe zamaana Ghatna(1974) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that five movies out of six whose songs were discussed ten years ago have since been YIPPEED in the blog.

In other words, only one movie is eligible for Blog ten years Challenge today on 25 February 2022.

That movie is “Gauna”(1950).

“Gauna”(1950) was directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Jagat Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Anoop Kumar, Purnima, S.Nazir, Kesari, Wasti,Chaubey, Indumati etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Gauna”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Roy (later Dutt). Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

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

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 8
———————————————————————

(Birthday greetings for – Danny Denzongpa – 25th February)

Today’s song is from the ‘1978’ movie ‘Naya Daur’. This movie had made its debut on the blog on 20.09.2012. However, no song was added to this movie after that one song. In less than eight months the movie will complete a ‘decade’ on the blog after making its debut while still remaining unYIPPEED. 😊

Today’s song is the second song of this movie ‘Naya Daur -1978’ on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Danny Dengzongpa. I think this must be the only song where Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Danny came together. Since this was the only Rafi song in this movie it is being presented under this series.

‘Naya Daur -1978’ was directed by Mahesh, Bhatt for ‘United Movie Arts, Bombay’. It had Rishi Kapoor, Bhavna Bhatt, Danny Dengzongpa, Farida Jalal, Manda Puri, Paintal, Poornima Ranjeet, Om Prakash, Ghanshyam Roheda, Major Anand, Sharat Saxena, Haider Chaudhary, Vishwa Mehra, Kamal Rai, Leena Das and Oscar.

Dr Shreeram Lagoo, Saprru and Shivraj make a special appearance in this movie. Shashi Kiran and Pinchoo Kapoor make a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.01.1978.

This movie had four songs penned by Anand Bakshi. Music for this movie was composed by R.D. Burman.

Here is the list of the songs appearing in this movie-

SNo Song-Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Chalo kahin aur chalte hain Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle 20.09.2012
02 Mujhe doston tum galey se lagaa lo Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Danny Dengzongpa*
03 Paani ke badley pee kar sharaab Kishore Kumar, Danny Dengzongpa
04 O paise waalon bade insaanon Kishore Kumar

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Danny Dengzongpa. On screen it is lip synced by Rishi Kapoor, Farida Jalal, and Danny Dengzongpa respectively.

(HFGK mentions only Rafi and Danny as singers for this song. Also, there is one audio available which does not contain Asha Bhonsle’s antaraa in the song. I am not aware if this was added later.)

I have not watched this movie (and it seems to be unavailable on internet as of now) so can’t say much about it. I would request knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Today 25th February’2022 is the seventy fourth birthday of Danny Denzongpa (born on 25th February’1948).

My very first post on the blog was on Danny Denzongpa in 2013 published on 26th February’2013. In this post I have briefly mentioned about his biography and filmography. So, I would not like to repeat all again here.

Let us wish Danny Denzongpa a ‘very happy birthday’. and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

We will now listen to today’s song which is a nice song, and it grows on us if we listen to it a few times …

Hullo Atuldom

“Chaandni” (1989) from the Yashraj Films stable was produced and directed by Yash Chopra. It starred Sridevi, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Sushma Seth, Mita Vashisht, Anant Mahadevan, Manohar Singh, and Waheeda Rehman and Achala Sachdev in guest appearances. It was the story of Chandni Mathur a young effervescent young lady unsure of her emotions for two gentle men.

This was Yash Chopra’s return to his formula of love stories with good music, locales, and heavy dose of emotions and sentiments. It was very successful and also confirmed Sridevi’s position as a super actress.

It had songs written by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Shiv-Hari. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Jolly Mukherjee, Nitin Mukesh, Vinod Rathod, Anupama Deshpande (the humming in the song ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir woh jhadi hain’), Asha Bhonsle, Babla etc. were the playback singers There is even a Kishore Kumar song in the movie which had 9 songs and the blog has 7 of these.

The above is what I had written on this date, last year, in the post remembering Sridevi. I must apologize for making a wrong statement in there- “Sorry there is no Kishore Kumar song in this film. The song which I thought was by Kishoreda was actually ‘bani tu meri mehbooba’ and it was in Vinod Rathod’s voice”.

Of the nine songs in the movie the following eight are already on the blog :-

Song Date of post
Lagi aaj saawan ki phir wo jhadi hai 21 March 2009
Tere mere honthon pe meethhe meethhe geet mitwa 22 March 2009
Mere haathhon mein nau nau choodiyaan hain 12 May 2009
Parbat se kaali ghata takraayee 13 September 2012
Main sasuraal nahin jaaungi 13 January 2013
Tu mujhe suna main tujhe sunaaun apni prem kahaani 11 May 2016
Bani tu meri mehbooba 21 March 2019
Chaandni o meri chaandni 24 February 2021

I am not very happy with the month of February, it has been a sad month for the entertainment industry. We have lost entertainers, gems, legends who were part of our growing up years. First it was our darling Lata Mangeshkar, that news was followed by the news of another legend’s passing- Sandhya Mukherjee from Kolkatta. The newsprint on that news had not yet dried and we got news of Bappi Lahiri’s passing. I was just wondering what is happening and yesterday evening saw the news of another entertainer’s passing- K.P.A.C Lalitha. She was an all-rounder from Malayalam films, had appeared in one or two Tamil films too and was active for five decades- from 1969. I may have seen her work only post 1988 and that had prompted me to see any movie that she is present in. She was active till a month ago and has left many incomplete films behind her. She would have turned 75 in a weeks’ time.

Yesterday, SLBC played chupke-se-mile-pyaase-pyaase in its program ‘ek hi film se’ and I recalled how I first got to know of this wonderful blog of Atulji which I like to call ‘Blog of ours’. I remembered that it is a month short of 13 years of my association with “Atulsongaday” which I like to call Atuldom. I had written the following in my 400th/sup> post and it still holds true for me:-

Before we get on to the song I must thank Atulji for allowing us as contributors on his blog and posting my mail to him giving details of the song as my first post ever as lyrics- contributor. That prompted me to send a few more lyrics as farmaishes and then the writing bug bit me and the number of days between my posts have been steadily reducing.

I know my contributions are not masterpieces but my own thoughts and feelings. How I wish I had the patience of Sadanandji to write well-researched posts. Or the knowledge of Arunkumarji whom I call Guruji or even the resources (read HFGK) of people like Sudhirji, Avinashji etc. I must also mention the love of Nahmji’s love for poetry and poets and her posts have been enlightening.

With today’s song we have all songs of “Chaandni” on our blog. So, let us YYIIPPEEEE to it.

Missing the effervescent Sridevi.

Today’s song is from the Film Sewa-1942.

The year 1942 was an year in which the Hindi film industry entered into its ‘ Teens”, from mid-year. By the time its ” Teen age” was over, it bloomed into its adulthood by beginning ” The Golden Period of Hindi film music” from the year 1949, with many musically enchanting films like Barsaat, Andaz, Badi Bahen, Bazaar, Dillagi, Ek this ladki, Dulari, Lahore and many more films.

Indian film industry has always been alive to the happenings in the country and reflects the national problems and important events in our films.1942 was an year when the II World War was on its peak and it had caused a severe food shortage in the world. Italy had made a silent film ‘Greed’ on this issue. Based on it, Mehboob Khan made a film , Roti’ in India. Mehboob was a socialist and a Nehruvian to the core and so his films like,Mother India or Son Of India were made on socialistic principles. In 1942,Ramchandra Thakur also directed one such film,’Gareeb’.

In India, the Congress had started its Quit India movement, but in our Film Industry it was a Quit studio movement. Many well known film artistes, directors, composers and other related staff moved over to new pastures. 1942, in a sense, became an overhauling of the Film industry with so much movement of people. The following activities changed the scenario to a great extent.

1. A group of disgruntled people in Bombay Talkies, comprising of Rai Bahadur Chunilal, Shashadhar Mukherjee, Ashok Kumar, Sawak Vachha and few of their followers left Bombay Talkies, after disagreements with Devika Rani and formed their own outfit – Filmistan.

2. Mehboob Khan separated from National studios and established his own Mehboob Productions. This was also the time when Mehboob and Anil Biswas separated from each other due to some differences.

3. Abdul Rasheed Kardar established his own Kardar studios.

4. V.Shantaram, along with his team left Prabhat- an institution which he established and made a famous one by his directorial contribution. He first joined Films division and then started his own Raj Kamal Kala Mandir.

5. Wadia Movietone split and the brothers separated. While JBH Wadia, the elder brother, wanted that their company should start making only Social films now, the younger Homi Wadia wanted to continue with Stunt and Action films. He started his own Basant Pictures. Wadia’s star performer Fearless Nadia went with Homi Wadia, whom she married a few years later.

6. Calcutta’s New Theatres started showing signs of disintegration and Debki Bose,P C Barua etc left the New Theatres. Debaki Bose made ‘ Apna Ghar’ in Bombay. K L Saigal left New Theatres to do films in Bombay . He did Ranjit’s’ Bhakta Surdas’ and ‘ Bhanwra’. He of course went back to Calcutta to do a few more films,before coming back to Bombay for Shahjehan and Pawana. He did not/could not go back to Calcutta,as he died after Parwana-47. Saigal, while recording the song “ Nainheen ko raah dikha” in Bhakta Surdas, did 14 retakes in recordings. His younger brother Mohan Saigal acted as Shri krishna in this film and he is heard saying” Surdas ji” in the song Nis Din barsat Nain hamare.

7. Composer Vasant Desai did his first independent film ” Shobha” as a Music Director.

8. C Ramchandra did his first Hindi film as a composer- Sukhi Jeevan.

9. Ninu Mujumdar became MD with the film Black Out.

10. Kamal Dasgupta started his Hindi film career with the film Jawab.

11. Lyricist Ramesh Gupta started with the film Awaz.

12. Lyricist Qamar Jalalabadi started with Zamindar.

13. Suraiya entered the Playback with songs in Nai Duniya and Sharda.

14. Hemant Kumar sang his first Hindi song in the film Meenakshi-42.

15. Manna Dey first sang a Hindi song in the film Tamanna.

16. Jagmohan Sursagar sang in the first Hindi film-Bhakta Kabir.

17. Nurjahan sang her first Hindi film songs in film Khandan-42, in Lahore.

18. Bharat Bhushan’s first film in a leading role was Bhakt Kabir.

19. Madhubala started as Baby Mumtaz in film Basant

From Lahore Dalsukh Pancholi repeated his magic with ‘ Khandaan’-42. This time it was Noorjehan who shook the industry with her songs under Ghulam Haider. Films like Bhakt Kabir,Bhakta Surdas, and Bharat Milap kept the Mythology/religious films in limelight. New Theatres,Prabhat,Bombay Talkies etc all brought excellent films in 1942. Barring Bhakta Surdas,Roti and Khandan,there was not much competition to Naushad’s Station Master-42 ,in music.Its music became quite popular and the film celebrated Silver Jubilee. Naushad tasted success for the first time in his career in 1942 and 2 of his 3 films in the year celebrated Silver Jubilees. The other film was Nai Duniya-42.

Let us take a look at some important films of 1942….

Film Barat had music by Ratanlal-brother of Khemchand Prakash and himself as Khemraj.

Film Basant- though it has the name of Pannalal Ghosh as MD, as per HFGK, all the songs were composed by Anil Biswas (because he was still under contract with National Studios) and Ghosh had only done Orchestration and background music.

Bhakta Kabir had music by Himangshu Dutt- the first title holder of “Sursagar”.

Bhakta Surdas- Gyan Dutt gave 15 hit songs of Saigal and Khursheed. In this film Khursheed sang equally well with Saigal.

Bharat Milap- First film in which Prem Adib and Shobhana Samarth did the roles of Shri Ram and Seeta, which made them famous all over India.

Chauranghee- the only Hindi film for which Kazi nasrul islam gave music and wrote songs too. It was his debut film. Also Debut for Hanuman prasad Sharma as Md and S.Fazli as Director.

Dus Baje- Debut of Baby Shakuntala.

Iqrar- Last film of actress Madhuri (Beryl Classen). Master Vithal-a professional singer from Sholapur sang his only song in a Hindi film.( not the actor)

Jawab- all songs popular, especially kanan devi’s ” Ye duniya Toofan mail”.

Khandan- Entry of Nur jahan, from Lahore. All her songs are popular.

Muqabala- First Talkie film with double role of Heroine- Nadia. Babhubhai Mistri’s magic in trick scenes.

Nai Duniya- Suraiy’s first song in Hindi film.

Roti- Begum Akhtar’s role and 6 songs.

Savera- First film of Arun Ahuja and Nirmala Devi.

Sharada- Naushad gives good songs.

Station Master- Hit film with songs.

Zamindar- Shanta Apte goes to Lahore all the way

All in all, the year 1942 was an eventful year for the industry. Indian audiences enjoyed a variety of Genres in film offerings and a feast of Naushad’s songs, Bhajans and New artistes.

Film Sewa-1942 was a social film made by Ashok pictures. It was directed by Dhirubhai Desai – a director from the silent era, who was famous for directing mainly B grade mythological films and occasionally a few social films The Lyricist was J C Kapur and the music was by S N Tripathi (11 songs) and Biri singh Dukha (2 songs). The film cast had Zahoor raja, Radharani, Shanta, A. Kabuli, Hadi, Shyamsundar, Anwari and few others.

Abdul Rehman Kabuli was from Afghanistan. An expert stage artiste, he had his own Drama Company-Elphinstone Theatre Company in Bombay. He sold the company, went to Calcutta and joined Madon Theatres/studios as an actor and director. He first acted in Shirin Farhad-31, Indrasabha-32,Guluru Zarina-32, Zahri saanp-33 etc etc, in all 40 films, both at Calcutta and Bombay, in the early era. Further he directed 12 films, starting with Shravan Kumar-32 up to Veer Bala-38. He wrote 55 songs in 6 films and sang 15 songs in 7 films. After Partition, he returned to his native country.

There is one odd name in the cast of this film- Hadi. His full name was S.M.Mohammad Hadi. He was also known as Master Hadi, due to his knowledge of Music and singing. In early Talkie films, he gave music to films, singly and with other composers and also sang songs. But mainly, he was an actor from the Silent era.
No wonder he was seen in some films of the First year of Talkie films of 1931, like Draupadi, in which he had played the role of Shakuni. He sang 3 songs also. He was seen in other films like Abu hasan-31, and Daulat ka Nasha-31( he was one of the MDs). His acting in saubhagya Sundari-33 and Sulochana -33 was much appreciated. He is estimated to have acted in about 40 films till 1947.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 22
————————————————————————————–

The month of february 2012 was a “normal” month by the standard of the blog those days. A typical day of that month saw 6, 7, or 8 songs getting covered in the blog.

23 February 2012 was very much a “normal” day for the blog in the sense that seven songs from seven different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details :-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5509 Mar gaye ham jeete jee maalik tere sansaar mein Shabaab(1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
5510 Mere lalla ko sulaayegi nindiya Suhaagan(1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
5511 Saagar pe aaj maujon ka raaj Rangoli(1962) Movie YIPPEED by now

5515 Laayi kahaan hai zindagi Taxi Taxie(1977) 3 songs covered out of 5 by now

One can notice that five movies (out of seven) whose songs were represented on the blog ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with only two movies that are yet to be YIPPEED and therefore eligible for the Blog ten year challenge today on 23 February 2022.

“Nayi Raahein”(1959) was one of the movies that are yet to be YIPPEED. This movie was produced by Devendra Goel and directed by Brij Sadanah for Goel Cine Corporation, Bombay.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

kiski manzil
kahaan kaa thhikaanaa
ho gayaa khatm saaraa fasaanaa
manzilon ko pataa woh bataayein

dhool path mein dhuaan aasmaan mein
kaun meraa rahaa ab jahaan mein
dharm jhoothhee..ee rasm ban gayaa hai
nyaay tootee kalam ban gayaa hai ae
mard ka paap bhi khoobsoorat
pyaar karke bhi badnaam aurat
bairi hain aadmi aadmi ke ae
aisey jag mein karoon kyaa main jee ke
chaand taaron ko chamkaaney waaley ae
ek deepak agar tu bujhaa de ae
kam na hongey tere ye ujaaley
mujhko duniyaa se maalik uthhaa ley
mujhko duniyaa se maalik uthhaa ley
mujhko duniyaa se maalik uthhaa ley ae aey ae ae

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Sahara-1943 – an almost 80 year old one !

Whenever I rummage through the pages of HFGK issues of the 30’s to 50’s for something,I see a lot of names of actors, actresses, directors, Lyricists, singers and composers. I find that names which are prolific in the beginning became rare and then disappeared. Like waves in the sea, artistes appear and disappear from time to time. Very few artistes have a longer career of more than 25 years. Similarly, some artistes have a very short career, say of just 3 or 4 films.

One type of artistes are those who join the industry and continue to work till they can work ,in different capacities like Heroes, side heroes, character artistes and finally as extras. Actors like Master Nissar, Master Shiraz, Parshuram, Sunder, Sajjan, Bharat Bhushan etc come in this category.

Another category is of those who leave the films and go back to their earlier vocations or fulfil their other ambitions. Artistes like Moti, B.A.-Lyricist, Laxmi Shankar, S D Batish, actor Arjun Bakshi,Child actor Shashi Kapur Sr., Child actor singer Ram marathe, Firoze Dastoor etc. fall in this category.

Yet another group consists of actresses or singers who stop working after they get married, as if that was their final goal in life. Artistes like Lalita Deulkar, Smriti Biswas, Nalini Tarkhud, Sardar Akhtar, Gohar Mamajiwala, Mehtab etc can be counted in this group.

Lastly there is a group of actresses-famous and popular- who actually joined films directly as Heroines only after they were already married and what’s more this fact was not hidden. Offhand I can name few such actresses – Nirupa Roy, Meenakshi Shirodkar, Renuka Devi, Shobhana Samarth, Neena etc. come in this category.

Until about 1950 or so, many of those who joined films were not much educated. In fact we have examples like Meena Shorey who was so illiterate that she could not even sign her name in any language, forget about reading,writing or speaking English. Similarly, singer Sitara kanpuri was also totally illiterate. Therefore a highly qualified educated person joining the films was unimaginable. In such times both the Hero and Heroineof film Sahara-1943 were the most educated, polished and from highly respected families. This itself was a wonder.

Heroine Renuka Devi, in first place she was already married before joining the film line and additionally, she was M.A.in English Literature from Aligarh University. The Hero-S.D.narang – was B.Sc., M.B.B.S., Ph.D, a research scholar and an author of 2 books. All this before joining the film line. Other such examples I remember now are actress Vanmala who was B.A.,B.T. and actor Ranjan who was a Ph.D and a fellow of New York university….before joining films.

While Renuka Devi kept her film career limited to only 9 films (1937 to 1947), Dr. Narang continued in films till his last days. Renuka Devi returned to continue as a Housewife-away from films. She engaged herself in Social work, was on TV talk shows in Pakistan and also wrote her autobiography in English.

It is unbelievable that people like Dr. S D Narang ever worked in the film industry. here in his short Bio for our New readers….

Here is a story which is stunning and unbelievable ! A young man was born on 18-6-1918,at Lyallpur,Punjab. He studied hard and got high education.First he did B.Sc., then completed M.B.B.S. and became a Medical Doctor. Later he submitted a Thesis and got his Ph.D. All this from Lahore Medical College. He also wrote some research papers and 2 books. With this sparkling education, he could have had a luxurious living,but he chose to join the uncertain Film World. True to his wont,he succeeded here too and became a Hero,Producer,Director,Studio owner , a Lyricist and a writer.

Yes, in the early era of the late 30s,when educated people were a rarity,this highly qualified young man came into films. His name was SATYA DEV NARANG or simply, S.D.Narang.(18-6-1918 to 25-1-1986 ). Here are some highlights of his life,adapted from the site sdnarangsfan.com…With thanks.

1. During his life, from 1918 to 1986, he served the Indian Film Industry, at three Capitals of this industry, Lahore (1936 to 1946), Calcutta (l947 to 1951) and Bombay (1952 to 1980), as hero, producer, director, writer and Studio owner.

2. He had the distinction of being the highest educated man in the film industry. He was B.Sc., M.B.B.S and Ph. D from Lahore Medical College.

3. He had the credit of being the debut making leading man of ‘ Khazanchi’ which was The First Indian Film to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

4. He was the youngest leading man in Lahore, who played the lead in Khazanchi, Ravi Paar, Zamindar, Patwari, Gawandhi,Thekedar, Sahara,Yeh Hai Zindagi (his first venture as producer-director) and Kamini.

5. In Calcutta he produced ‘Chittagong Armoury Raid’, which was India’s ‘First Revolutionary Film’. He also produced Nai Bhabhi, Ek Raat, Aparajitha, and Chiner Putul and also played the leading roles in these films. Apart from his own movies, he played the lead in Iran Ki Ek Raat and Kajari,which were produced by outside producers.

6. After partition, he had to leave Lahore, like a Refugee, leaving all his assets and immovable property behind him. With his hard work and experience once again he was able to establish himself as the hero, producer, director, writer and Studio owner at Delhi. But the studio proved disaster in disguise for him. Being a soft hearted person, he was giving credit to the producers, who used to shoot their films in his studio. They duped him and he had to suffer heavy losses. With this bitter experience he left the city and entered the City of Dreams and the capital of Entertainment, Bombay, in 1952.

7. Being a passionate movie maker, Dr. S. D. Narang was able to get himself settled in Bombay, within a very short span of time. He had already dedicated himself to the silver screen. Once again he arose alive from his own ashes, like a Phoenix.

8. He made his presence felt in a big way in the big City of Bombay. He produced and directed many films with big stars. In Tanhai and Darban he played the leading role himself. Some of the important films produced by him in Mumbai include, Arab Ka Saudagar, Yahudi Ki Ladki, Dilli Ka Thug, Sagai, Babul Ki Kaliyan, Do Thug, Ram Kasam, College Girl, Do Ustad, Kismatwala and Nishanebaaz. He had also produced Shehnai, which was India’s First Air-Force Film.

9. He was also the producer of Bombay Ka Chor, which was India’s First ‘Holiday-on-Ice’ movie.

10. He has also the credit of producing India’s First Under-water-movie, ‘Anmol Moti’ Jeetendra and Babita starrer.

11. The movie maker with Midas touch, Dr. S. D. Narang, had spent his 50 golden years of his cinematic profession, in the service of Silver Screen.(1936-86). He acted in 7 films and directed 14 Hindi films.

12, Before venturing into the film industry as the leading man, S. D. Narang, had an aptitude for research and while studying in Lahore Medical College, he did research on ‘Binocular Theory Of Vision’, which was published in his college Magazine. He bagged the Ph. D and became the Doctor of Philosophy, though he was already a Doctor of medicines.

13, Apart from being the author of a novel ‘Hippy Aur Yogi’ and ‘Human Psychology’, he had written a most praiseworthy book, ‘An Introduction To The Theory Of ‘Bio-Economics. It was actually a new approach to diagnosis and cure of Inflation and poverty. If applied to the present Global financial crisis, it can change the face of the fiscal fate of the World.

14. In 1960 he got married to actress of his time Smriti Biswas,with whom he had played the lead in many films. After her marriage she stopped signing new films, and decided to play the roles of faithful wife and caring mother. Still she prefers to prepare food for her beloved sons Rajiv Narang and Satyajeet Narang.

Today’s song is sung by Zeenat Begum and an unknown male singer. It seems to be a funny song. Written by lyricist Nazim Panipati ( brother of Producer,Director and Lyricist author Wali Saheb- who was the husband of actress Mumtaz Shanti), it was musically composed by Music Director Pt. Govind Ram. This rare song was given to me by my friend from the US- Abhay Jain and uploaded by our Sadanand ji Kamath. Thanks to both.
