Blog Day :

4991 Post No. : 16885

Today (18 march 2022), the blog had two guest posts so far, and both pertained to Holi. That created some confusion in my mind. I was under the impression that Holika dahan is on the night of 18/19 march and Holi is on 19 march 2022. To add to my confusion, I found out that Railway HQ in Southern Railway, Chennai was open today on 18 march 2022. It turns out that I was out of phase by one day from others. It turns out that even Chennai celebrates holiday today. It is only Southern Railway HQ in Chennai that has decided to work on this day. 🙂

When one looks at the festival category (on the right side of the blog), one finds that the blog has as many as 67 Holi related songs. The second most popular festival is Deepaawali (38 songs) and then Rakhi (24 songs). Looking at the nature of the festivals, it is not very difficult to guess why Holi is the most popular festival for Hind movie makers. It gives then a genuine reason to indulge in a song and dance sequence full of box office hit ingredients, viz color, revelry, two genders dancing together and getting wet thanks to coloured water sprinkled on them from pichkaari.

Even in real life, this festival is popular for similar reasons. And it is popular among trouble makers as well.

On this day, trains remain empty. It is so unlike the occasion of Deepaawali when trains run to full capacity and you cannot have berths in trains. I, not averse to act diferent from the masses, had once (nearly four decades ago)travelled by train on the day of Holi from Jamalpur to Patna and then from Patna to Ranchi. On normal days entering the train itself was a tall order. But on that day, I was perhaps the only occupant of those trains.

With 67 Holi songs under the belt of the blog, some people may feel that we have run out of Holi songs to cover. Nothing can be farther from the truth. There are still lots and lots of Holi songs that are not yet covered in the blog. I have already mentioned it earlier that HOli is the most popular festival among movie makers, and so Holi related songs keep appearing in Hindi movies even today. This genre of song is unlikely to go out of fashion in Hindi movies.

Prakashchandra himself has singlehandedly sent me dozens of Holi realted songs. Moreover, I have discovered some more Holi songs on my own. All these supply of Holi songs will last us for many Holi festivals. 🙂

The Holi song that accompanies this post is from “Banjaarin”(1960). This movie was produced and directed by Ratan KUmar for Ratan Produced by Ratan Kumar for Ratan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini (Debutant), Lalita Kumari, Sunder, Indira Bansal, Chetan Kumar, Shree Bhagwan, Dalpat (in triple role), T.N.Sinha, Bagla, Murari, Prayag Dutt, Hari, Kapoor, Polson, Master Papoo, Bela, Paro, Laxminarayan, Rehana, Geeta, Meera etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Banjaarin”(1960). This song is sung by Rafi, Shamshad Begam and chorus. Pt Madhur is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pardesi (or Pardeshi).

The song is picturised as a Holi festivity song on Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini, Lalita Kumari Sinha, Indira Bansal etc.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a (somewhat belated) happy and safe Holi.

Remarks:- It was pointed out by Mr Partha Chanda, our regular visitor with a keen eyae that the same song was discussed under “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) on 5 april 2020. On checking up, that indeed turned out to be the case. On further investigation, it turned out that the song was originally intended for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957), but it could not be accomodated there. Finally this song was included in “Banjaarin”(1960) which had more or less the same starcast as “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(19557) with some changes.

I thank Nahm, our regular contributor, for pointing out this fact. Since this song was composed for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) so its lyricist is Bharat Vyas and music director is S N Tripathi, unlike other songs of “Banjaarin”(1960) where Pt Madhur is the lyricist and Pardesi is the music director.

I have now replaced the earlier post of 5 april 2020 containing the same song by another Rafi Shamshad Begam duet and penned by the same lyricist (Bharat Vyas).

Happy Holi to All !!!
Thanks for this song Prakash ji and many thanks Atul ji for presenting this song with your special post.
Enjoyed the post and the song too.
Thanks and regards,

Dear Atul ji,

The same song has been covered by you in your Post dated 5th April 2020 as being from the Film “JANAM JANAM KE PHERE”, with Music by SN Tripathi.

Which is correct, or was the same song used in two different films? If so, why two different Music Directors.

Would be thankful if you kindly clarify the matter.

With warm regards

You are right. This matter needs investigation. The song covered here has video and it shows an actress (Kanchan Kamini) who was not there in “Janam Janam Ke Phere”. So this song is used in “Banjaarin”. The video of “Janam Janam Ke Phere” song is not available. It calls for some research if the two songs are same or only the first line is same.

“Aayi Mohan Milan Ki Bela – This song was originally recorded by S.N. Tripathi for the film “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) but not used in the film.”

http://myswar.co/album/janam-janam-ke-phere-1957

The song is one and the same in both films song listings. It is credited to S. N. Tripathi.

Thanks for this information. It is a very useful explanation. The fact that the song appears under both movies created this confusion. I will replace the “Janam Janam Ke Phere” song with some other song to avoid duplication.

Dear Mrs Nahm ji,

The Credits in the Film BANJARIN (1960), mentions Pt. Madhur as the Lyricist of this Song and the Music Director is named as PARDESHI with the additional words “a new discovery by Ratan Kumar”. There is no mention of either Bharat Vyas or SN Tripathi.

You may like to see the first few minutes of the Film BANJARIN

Further, the site HINDI GEETMALA mentions only Pt. Madhur and Pardesi as the Lyricist and the Music Director respectively

https://www.hindigeetmala.net/movie/banjaarin.htm

There is no evidence that SN Tripathi composed this Song.

As Atul ji has stated, the matter needs investigation.

Sir,

You are right, the title credits of “Banjarin”(1960) film don’t mention anyone of the artists involved in this song, as even the names of playback singers appear as “Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Mukesh”.

But myswar.com is giving the info in trivia of both films ie Janam Janam ke Phere (1957) and Banjarin(1960) song lists. This song appears in both lists and credited to Bharat Vyas/S.N.Tripathi and Rafi-Shamshad.

Regards.

Dear Mrs Nahm ji,

How are we to believe that the song was composed for JANAM JANAM KE PHERE when the song is no where in that Film? Are there any Gramophone Records mentioning that song from JJKP ?

Don’t you think we should give more importance to the Film BANJARIN which mentions Pt. Madhur as the Lyricist and Pardeshi as the Music Director?

I would suggest that unless evidence surfaces to the contrary, we should believe what the Film Credits say and not what some Site mentions as Trivia without any supporting evidence.

If you still insist that SN Tripathi is the Composer, you are welcome to your views.

With warm regards

SAREGAMA website has listed this song under ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ (1957) in which Bharat Vyas has been credited as a lyricist.

Audio Clip:

It is, therefore, presumed that 78 rpm record of the song may have been issued under the film title of ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ (1957).

Dear Sadanand ji,

Does that mean that no Record was issued for the same song under the film title “BANJARIN”?

The Site HINDI GEETMALA also mentions this song as being of “BANJARIN”

Dear Partha ji,

On checking the Geet Kosh, one can ascertain the following.

The song is released on 78 rpm record number N 52222, and the label has the name of film as ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ (1957). The song is at serial no. 9 of the list of songs of this film. However, this song cannot be located in the video of this film.

Since this publications predates the song used in ‘Banjaarin’ (which released in 1960), I would say that it is correct to credit Bharat Vyas and SN Tripathi for this song.

As I check the Geet Kosh listing for ‘Banjaarin’ (1960), I find that this song is also listed here at serial no. 7. However, in this listing, no 78 rpm record number is given. As we have seen in the film ‘Banjaarin’, the song is very much available in the video of this film.

So it may be logically concluded that the song was created originally for the 1957 film ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’, but it was not used in that film. Later, this song is definitely used in the 1960 film ‘Banjaarin’. However, the issue is that is has been used without crediting the original creators.

I have already sent this query to some of my friends who delve more into such details. I will surely give an update here, as and when I get any firm response to my queries.

Dear Atul ji,

My take is that we do not / should not replace the song under ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ (1957). Technically the song exists in both films, and so it rightly has place in both films.

Our listings should match with the Geet Kosh, as that is the standard we have assumed and accepted.

I agree with this stand.

Dear Atul ji, Sudhir ji and Sadanand ji,

If you listen to both the Songs, there is one additional Stanza added in the beginning for the Film “BANJARIN”. Further, there is a very subtle difference in the pitch and the speed of the two songs. One can hazard a guess that the tune was copied, but it seems almost certain that the Song for “BANJARIN” was a fresh recording by the Singers, with slight change in the instrumentation.

Perhaps SN Tripathi and BM Vyas gave their silent approval or did not press charges.

Dear Atul ji, If the Song is mentioned as a Song in “JANAM JANAM KE PHERE” by ASAD, I would request that you include a Disclaimer that the Song was recorded for the Film but was not included in the Film. This will avoid confusion in the minds of others who may follow ASAD long after we are gone.

Thank you Sudhir ji, for taking the trouble to dig up the details. One wonders who this Ratan Kumar, the Producer of “BANJARIN” is? The Child Star Ratan Kumar of “Jagriti” fame had migrated to Pakistan in 1956.

With warm regards to all,

PARTHA CHANDA
