Hullo Atuldom

There are so many possible songs to go with today’s post. Songs that will do justice to the personality and versatile talent of the concerned celebrity.
He was an actor born with acting in his genes. He was not a star-kid but a star-heir, facing the camera for the first time when he was barely 2 or 3 years old. He was seen next as an adolescent playing his father’s Bachpan. All that I have written are well known facts about this actor, who in later years turned a producer-director much like his father. Along with his brothers he tried to keep the studio and banner, set up by his showman father, aloft till 2017 when the iconic property in Mumbai’s Chembur area caught fire and collapsed during the shoot of a television reality show. The brothers then decided to pull down the shutters on a piece of history of Indian cinema.

Regular movie-buffs will know that I am speaking of Raj Kapoor’s sons- Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv and the RK Films and RK Studios. The last movie that came from this banner was “Aa Ab Laut Chalen” (1999) which was directed by Rishi Kapoor. Before that “Prem Granth” (1996) which was directed by Rajiv Kapoor and “Henna” (1991) directed by Randhir Kapoor were the offerings from RK Films both of which had Rishi Kapoor playing the central character.

As I mentioned above Rishi Kapoor had acting in his genes with all the males (before him) from his family, being in the entertainment industry -Prithviraj Kapoor (grandfather), Raj Kapoor (father) Shammi Kapoor & Shashi Kapoor (uncles). Chintu (as Rishi Kapoor used to be addressed fondly) had shared screen space with his uncles and has been directed by his father in a few movies. I doubt if has appeared in any movie with his niece- Karisma and Kareena; but he has acted with his son Ranbir which was incidentally his wife Neetu’s comeback to movies, after she quit the limelight for family life.

The last movie that he faced the camera for, post his return from USA after undergoing treatment for the dreaded C, released on an OTT channel on 31st March 2022. I happened to see this for the love of Chintu and I must say ‘I was not disappointed’.

Chintu was one actor who had always emoted well and things were not any different in “Sharmaji Namkeen”. The unique thing about the film was the way they had two actors play a single character. Maybe a first in Indian movies. Actually, there was about four days shoot left, of the movie, at the time of Chintu’s passing. Paresh Rawal stepped in and the movie was completed. The makers didn’t re-shoot the parts which Chintu had completed. Instead, the transition in the scenes with the two actors was kept seamless and they didn’t try to get a single person to dub for the two actors (both actors spoke in their own voice). I would love to see the movie all over again just to enjoy the smooth handling of the movie. It had all the trademark stuff that fans of Chintu loved him for including the sweaters and mufflers that he was famous for.

Much as I would like to share a song from “Sharmaji Namkeen” in this post I am settling for one of his popular numbers from the ’70s. (Link to Sharmaji songs is not yet available on Youtube).

Today’s song may well be one of those categorized as “How come this song was not posted earlier?”. It features Chintu with Neetu Singh and is written by Gulshan Bawra. Kalyanji Anandji are the music directors of this song that is sung by Shailendra Singh and Asha Bhonsle.

This movie, “Rafoo Chakkar” (1975), was directed by Narinder Bedi and produced by House of Nadiadwalas. It had Faryal, Asrani, Paintal, Rajindernath, Sulochana, Mumtaz Begum, Madan Puri, Anwar Hussain, Shetty, Kamran, etc in addition to the lead pair of Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor. It had six songs of which the blog has the following four.

Dil lena buri bala hai 22 August 2013

Let us enjoy the locales of Kashmir and remember how simple life was back in the 70s. The girl needed to educate the guy ‘what love was all about’ 🙂


Song-Kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai (Rafoo Chakkar)(1975) Singers-Shailendra Singh, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai

Blog Day :

5034 Post No. : 16943

Today’s song is from the ‘Golden Years’ of ‘Hindi Film Music’. It is from the movie ‘Garibi-1949’.

I had come across this song more than seven years back and I had shared it as well however this song remains to be posted till now.

This song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali.

Regulars on the blog must be aware that I have also shared many Zohrabai Ambalewali songs as I like them very much. I had been listening to her many songs during 2013-2014 when I used to browse and listen to her songs regularly.

Today’s movie ‘Garibi’ was directed by Ramchandra Thakur. It had Geeta Bali, Jayraj, Nirupa Roy, P. Kailash, Usha Kiran, Banke Bihari, Ramesh Thakur, M.K. Hasan, Bhoopat Rai, Tarabai, Jayram, Jawahar Kaul and others.

Here is a brief about this movie as mentioned by our Respected Arunkumar ji in his comments on one of the song-posts of this movie

GARIBI (1949), a Ranjit movietone film had music by its contracted composer B C Rani and lyricists were Rajendra Krishna, Shevan Rizvi, B.R. Sharma and M G Adeeb.
I don’t know whether Chandulal Shah ever knew on what storylines their movies were being produced on the assembly line, because not only all 4 set-sections of Ranjit studios were always shooting some films but sometimes they used to hire the neighboring Sharda studios also.
This was one movie which eulogized the virtues of poverty (Garibi) as compared to Riches (Amiri). Geeta Bali, hailing from a poor family loves and gets married to rich Jairaj. She finds it difficult to adjust to the rich ways of her sasural, particularly Saas-Sasur (Tarabai-Bhupat Rai),while her poor mother(Nirupa Roy) and Father(P. Kailash) get poorer but they have very high ideals and come to the rescue of their rich relatives when there is a problem with their daughter(Usha Kiran),who is in trouble with her husband(Jawahar Kaul).
Having learnt that only Money cannot give happiness, the rich family respects the poor and poverty. This was a very unconvincing storyline and badly handled too. The only saving grace was its superb music.

This movie has eights songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950).

Music for this movie was composed by Bulo C. Rani. Four lyricists contributed the eight songs in this movie and they are Rajinder Krishan (three songs), Shewan Rizvi (two songs), B.R. Sharma (two songs) and M.G. Adeeb (one song).

Here is the list of songs of this movie :-

SNo Song Title Singer/s Lyricist Posted On
01 Dard dil hi mein chhipaa le, muskurana seekh le Geeta Roy Rajinder Krishan
02 Kisi se hamne ye poochha, muhabbat kisko kehte hain Mohd Rafi Rajinder Krishan 02.11.2017
03 Mastana nigaahon ke deewaane hazaaron hai Shamshad Begum Shewan Rizvi
04 Haay ye maine kya kiya jo tumhe thukraa diya Shamshad Begum Rajinder Krishan
05 Ik din ik armaan bhara dil, ulfat se do chaar huaa Mohd Rafi B.R. Sharma 28.10.2011
06 Sun mujhse ki … do roz ka jeena hai Zohrabai Ambalewali B.R. Sharma
07 Dukhon mein jo muskuraa rahe thhe Geeta Roy Shewan Rizvi
08 Ae saamne aane waale bataa, kyon chaand mera mujhse hai khafaa Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi M.G. Adeeb 21.10.2011

From the above table we can see that three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. The first song of this movie was posted on 21.10.2011 and the second song followed a week later on 28.10.2011. However, after that this movie was forgotten and the third song of this movie appeared on the blog after a gap of almost six years.

Now, today, we are going to discuss the fourth song from this movie after a gap of another four and half years.

Today’s song is written by B.R. Sharma and it is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali. This is a nice philosophical/ motivational song and I like it very much.

Music is composed by Bulo C. Rani.

Let us now listen to today’s song …


Song-Do roz ka jeena hai jee jee ke jiye jaa (Gareebi)(1949) Singer-Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

Blog Day : 5033 Post No. : 16942 Movie Count : 4598

Today’s song is from an obscure, not very well known film Sabyasachi-1948. The name of the film is rather strange and not many people will know what it means. In simple translation it means a person who is Ambidextrous or one who can use both hands with equal expertise. This was an adjective used famously in Mahabharat for Arjun. He was an extraordinary archer and he could do this with both his hands separately and simultaneously, with the same expertise.

This was a film made by Associated Pictures, Calcutta. No wonder then that the entire crew and cast was from Bengal only.Even the Heroine, Meera Mishra-though not a Bangla actress, was an expert in Bangla language, who had acted in few Bangla movies too. During the early cinema period, Calcutta was also a major centre for Hindi films and from 1932 to almost 1955, Hindi films were made there regularly, by several film makers including of course the New Theatres. However, after 1955, there were almost no actors/actresses who could speak fluent Hindi. More than that, the Bangla film industry itself had grown so much that there was no need to make Hindi films anymore.

From as early as 1935-36, Hindi films were made based on Novels of Bangla language. The contribution of Bangla language to provide fodder for films is unmatched.(The only other Indian language to do this is Malayalam). This was mainly because the people in Bengal are avid readers of books. During my Marketing career, I visited various parts of Bengal in 20 years. I used to be amazed at the “Book Fairs’ held at Calcutta. I visited these fairs a few times and was overwhelmed to see lakhs of people purchasing books there. I think the Book Fairs must be doing a turnover of crores of rupees !

I tried to make a list of Hindi films based on Bangla novels and I easily crossed the 50’s mark, when I stopped. 90 % of these films were Hits. Some of the popular Hindi films on Bengali novels are Devdas-35, Milan-46, Anandmath-52, Do bigha zameen-53, Sujata-55, Kabuliwala-61, Ghunghat-60, Bandini-63, Namkeen-67, Bhuvan Shome-69, Satyakam-69, Sahib, bibi aur ghulam-62, Khamoshi-70, Uphaar-71, Saudagar-73, Amar Prem-72, Chupke Chupke-75 (my favourite), Kora Kagaz-74, Balika Badhu-76, Kitaab-77, Apne paraye-80, lekin-90, Rudaali-93 and many more. You will notice that films on Bangla novels were not just family dramas or tragedies, but it was a mix of comedy, pathos, drama, entertainment and almost every Genre except Historical and Mythological films, perhaps.

Film Sabyasachi-1948 was also based on Bangla novel “Pather Dabi”, by Sharat Chandra Chatterjee. The novel was initially serialised in the Bangla magazine “Bangbani” and then published in 1926. However after initial 5ooo copies were sold out in a week’s time, the British Government banned the novel on 4-1-1927. The novel Pather Dabi (The right of Path/ Demands of the road) was about a secret society whose goal is to free India from British rule.

The leader of this secret group is Sabyasachi Malick. He is highly educated, having studied Medicine, Engineering and Law from the Universities of UK and USA. He is tall and so strong that he created records of swimming the flooded rivers in torrential rains and crossing the entire Himalaya on foot in record time. He punishes the rich and helps the poor. In short he is The Superman ! He knows several languages and is an expert in Makeup too. Apurba (Paresh Bannerjee) is a weak member of this team and he becomes a Police informer. Sumitra (Meera Mishra) and Bharathi(Sandhya Rani) are the 2 women in this group who have faced several problems in their personal lives.

The Indian Express, in its review of the film says, ” the film story touches upon issues of Untouchability, Orthodoxy and Faiths. It deals with bRich-Poor divide and status of women in the then Bangla society. It criticises British Policies and India’s inherent customs of Religion and social structure.” Sabyasachi was Bengal’s first Superman of Bangla Fiction, according to the Indian Express.

The film was made in Bangla and Hindi versions. The Bangla version was directed by Bibhuti Laha. The Hindi version was directed by ” Agradoot’, who also directed the film Babla-53 later in Hindi. The film was released on 6-11-48. The cast of the Hindi version was Meera Mishra, Tulsi, Anup, Paresh Banerjee, Sandhyarani,Savitri Devi,Uma, Sunder, Bipin Gupta and many others. Songs were written by Zahir Hussain and music was composed by Robin Chatterjee.

Robin Chatterjee. He was born on 8-1-1914, at Calcutta. His name is not too well known to Hindi film lovers, though he was very famous in Bengal (as Robin Chatopadhyaya), where he composed several NFS and film songs. For many years he assisted Anupam Ghatak,MD. He even sang in the chorus for New Theatre’s film Adhikar-1938. However he was not so successful in Hindi films.

His first Hindi film was Rajlakshmi-1945, wherein he gave the first opportunity to Talat Mahmood to sing a Hindi film song. Till then he was singing Bangla NFS and film songs with the name Tapan kumar. His next film was Tum aur main-1946 which had very good songs by kanan Devi. Then came Voh Dono-1947 and here Sandhya Mukherjee gave good songs. Robin Chatterjee gave music to 14 Hindi films, namely – Rajlakshmi-45, Tum aur main-46, Voh Dono-47, Sabyasachi-48,Ratnadeep-51, Pehli Shadi-53, Firdaus-53, Shobha-54, Majboori-54, Africa-54, Dhake ki malmal-56, Miss Toofan mail-58, Police Station-59 and Chimney ka Dhuvan-1973…this was a much delayed film. He also gave music to a Bhojpuri film- Saiya se kar le milanwa-1966.

Robin Chatterjee died on 2-4-1976 at Bombay at the age of just 61 years.

The story of film’s heroine Meera Mishra is strange. She entered Hindi films with Bombay Talkies film Milan-46. Meera Mishra’s joining the films generated a lot of interest and excitement because she was the wife of an I.P.S. Officer. Meera reportedly answered an advertisement of The Bombay Talkies in newspapers and was called for an interview and was selected readily. Two films, bilingual , Naukadubi (Bengali) and Milan (Hindi) were produced by Bombay Talkies and Meera was chosen to play Kamala in both versions.

The Bengali film Naukadubi had Abhi Bhattacharya playing Ramesh, Meera Sarkar as Hemnalini and Pahari Sanyal as Akshay Babu. The Hindi version Milan had Dilip Kumar as Ramesh and Meera therefore had Dilip Kumar as her first leading man. The Hindi version had Ranjana playing Hemnalini while it was Pahari Sanyal again as Akshay Babu in Milan. The film was directed by Nitin Bose and Anil Biswas was the music director. Parul Ghosh lent her voice in both the versions and here in Noukadubi she had some five Tagore songs, her only Bengali songs.

Both Naukadubi and Milan did well and the initial plan of Meera was to retire after this one film. However, her I.P.S. husband Kripa Sindhu Mishra was killed in action during Delhi riots and Meera decided to carry on with her film career. She had a son Jishnu from the Late K P Mishra. Her other films included Abhijatya (1949), Eki Gramer Chhele (1950), Abarta (1950), Sandhya Belar Rupkatha (1950), Sabyasachi (Hindi-1948)-based on Sarat Chandra Chatterjee’s Pather dabi. She played the role of Sumitra, Bishnupriya (1949). Her other Hindi films included Ghar ki Numaish-49,Chhore-50,Kashmir Hamara hai-50, Azadi ke baad-51, Chamakee-52, Chhoti Maa-52.

She quit films early and settled into married life again. Her husband was Mr Ranjit Gupta, Chief secretary to the Government of West Bengal.

Meera Mishra was born in Kanpur and died in Calcutta somewhere in 2007.

Today’s song is sung by Sandhya Mukherjee. She began her career in Mumbai singing Hindi songs, starting with a song in the film Sabyasachi-1948. Her first playback song was in the film Tarana in 1951. She sang, as a playback singer, 36 songs in 19 Hindi films. Though she sang several songs in 7 films in Hindi, her name became famous only after she sang a duet ” gupchup gupchup pyar karen” with Hemant Kumar in the film Sazaa-1951. Her last Hindi film song was in the film Chimni ka dhuan-73. She decided to come back to and settle in her home city Kolkata in 1952 due to personal reasons.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Dil Ka Raaja -1972#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Dil Ka Raaja’.

This is another movie which I came across while presenting the ‘missing movies of 1972’ on the blog. Though this movie made its debut on the blog way back on 14.10.2014, only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog. I do not remember to have listened to other songs from this movie. That is the reason for this post where today we will enjoy the second song from this movie.

Music for this movie is also composed by R.D. Burman.

‘Dil Ka Raaja-1972’ was directed by P. Madhwan for ‘Nadiadwala Associates, Bombay’. It was produced by A.A. Nadiadwala.

It had Raj Kumar, Leena Chandavarkar, Ajit, Bindu, Jagdeep, Indrani Mukherjee, Randhir, Meena T., Sheikh, Surendra Rahi, Manjeet, Omkar, Pandit Iqbal, Jankidas, Uma Dutt, Rajesh, Maqbool, Master Anil, Master Ripal, and Waheeda Rehman (in special appearance).

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Balamurugan. Dialogues of this movie were written by Kaushal Bharti.

Editing of this movie was done by Babubhai Thakkar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.11.1972.

As I mentioned above one song from this movie has been posted on the blog earlier and that was presented by Shri Satyajit Rajurkar on the blog.

In his post (which is his passionate post about Rafi Saab) he had also mentioned about the story of this movie which I am reproducing below from his post.

This movie is about two brothers who try to retrieve the lost glory of their “king” father through hard work and sincerity. After generously donating all the wealth accumulated by three generations of his family, Ramnagar-based Raja Vichitra Singh (Raaj Kumar), faces humiliation at the hands of Thakur Gajendra Singh (Ajit) when he is unable to pay a dowry for his sister, Gauri (Indrani Mukherjee). He does fulfill his promise by mortgaging his mansion, Raghupathi Bhavan, but the shock kills his wife, Lakshmi (Waheeda Rehman). Humiliated, with no one coming forward to help him, he leaves Ramnagar, along with his three children, Raja (Raaj Kumar), Bajrang (Jagdedep), and Vijaya (Meena T) and re-locates to Bombay, hoping to accumulate Three Lakh Rupees, so that he can get the Bhavan back as well as restore his honour. The rest of the story is about how Vichitra Singh, now a tonga driver and his children, who end up working as a coolies and labourers, try and save the money to enable them to get the mansion back.

The movie is a remake of the A Nageshwar Rao starrer “Dharma Daata” (1970).

‘Dil Ka Raaja’ had five songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed to music by Rahul Dev Burman.

Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Sundar hoon aisi main jidhar chaloon Asha Bhonsle, chorus
02 Sundar ho aisi tum jidhar chalo ek baar Mohd Rafi
03 O rajeshwari … badi hai shohrat tumhaare honthhon tumhaari aankhon ki Mohd Rafi,Asha Bhonsle
04 Jinke paas haathi ghoda, unke paas dil hai thodaa Rafi, Asha,Manna Dey
05 Jaao jaao tum bhi jaao, samajhte kya ho Mohd Rafi 14.10.2014

Today’s song is sung by Rafi Saab and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is performed by two pairs i.e. Raj Kumar – Leena Chandavarkar, and Jagdeep – Bindu. (Rajkumar and Jagdeep play brothers in this movie).

This is a nice entertaining song sung by Rafi Saab and Asha Bhonsle. I hope readers will enjoy listening and watching this song.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

5028 Post No. : 16936

Today’s song is a Non Film Song (NFS) – for a change ! It is sung by Pankaj Mallick. Lyricist is Fayyaz Hashmi and the song is set to music by Pankaj Mallick himself. It must be a song originally recorded before the Partition, because the Lyricist migrated to Pakistan after that in 1947.

Music in India can be divided into 2 groups.
1) Film Songs and 2) Non Film Songs.

Non Film Songs (NFS) as an all inclusive term and it includes all songs other than film songs – Bhajans, Naats, Geets, Qawalis, Gazals,classical songs and anything and everything that is not a film song. It may include the various folk songs, traditional songs sung in all parts of India on various occasions like Bhai Dooj, Rakhi, Holi, Sankranti, Bidai, Farmers’ songs during harvesting, even songs composed by Saints and songs sung by housewives while operating Home Chakkies, Naag Panchami songs etc.etc.

Music has been an inseparable part of Man’s life in the World. In India music is used whenever things needed to be remembered. I remember, in the 40’s and the 50’s, in our school days, the teachers used to insist on singing Poems from the books, in tune, so that we remembered them. Even the mathematical Tables and Pahades were recited collectively in tune,in classes and we never forgot them. That is why old people, even today, remember the tables of 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1 1/2, 1 1/4, 1 3/4, 2 1/2, 3 1/2 etc. etc. For the new generations it is unbelievable because now calculators do all this without investing personal efforts. Great advantages and disadvantages too ! Simple calculations can not be done without calculators these days. Anyway, that is besides this topic.

Great singers and classical experts always had the Royal Patronage and for common people the traditional music and folk songs were there. After the advent of Radio in Bombay (23-7-1927) and Calcutta (26-8-1927), music came to the commoners. But even on Radio, for a long time, only classical music was aired on Bombay Station. However Calcutta station aired songs other than classical because they had plenty of songs which were sung during the Puja season. The origin of NFS was from the East. I used to always wonder as to why NFS singers were mainly from Bengal-Pankaj Mallick, Saigal, Jagmohan, Hemant Kumar, Juthika Roy, Kamla Jharia and even Talat Mehmood sang his NFS from Calcutta.

Famous singer of NFS, Jagmohan Sursagar has written in his Autobiography in 1985, about the Birth of NFS thus- ” In the initial stages Kamal Dasgupta was influenced by Rabindranath Tagore. Tagore’s songs and compositions(Rabindra sangeet) were extremely popular, but were limited to Bangla people only. Ghazal, qawwali, Dadra, Naat, Thumri, Hori, Kajari etc. used to come to market but had a very limited listenership. These never reached the top.

” The fusion of Gazal, Dadra and Qawali with Bangla Geet style gave birth to Hindi Non Film Songs or geets. As such Geet had a known and accepted place in Literature, but not in Music. To establish this new Genre, Kamal babu used lyrics by Pt. Madhur, Pt. Anjum and Faiyaz Hashmi, got them sung by Jagmohan, Hemant, Talat, Juthika etc. Their records were inscribed with ‘ Hindi Geet (Hindustani Song) ‘. What thus started as NFS Geet from 1936 continued up to next 20 years non stop. “

However, in the course of time, almost all Hindi Playback singers like Lata, Asha, Geeta, Shamshad, Talat, Mukesh, Rafi, Nurjahan, Amirbai, Zohrabai etc. sang NFS. Some of their NFS became very popular too. The NFS started to be discussed on this Blog somewhere from late 2011. I remember AK ji and myself were the major vocal supporters of NFS on this Blog. Today there are 245 NFS, sung by various singers on our Blog. There are 75 singers of NFS. Some rare songs by Abhram Bhagat, Ashraf Khan, Master Vasant, Tamancha Jaan, Indurani etc. are also there. I think on the Internet, ours must be the only Blog providing such a feast of popular NFS-so many at ONE place. Thanks ATUL ji.

The contribution of singers, Lyricists and composers from Bengal to the emergence, sustainance, prosperity and decline is notable. Kamal Dasgupta and Fayyaz Hashmi played a pivotal role in the flourishing of NFS in India and were the earliest promoters of NFS. let us know more about Fayyaz Hashmi….

Fayyaz was born on 18-6- 1920 at Calcutta. His father, Syed Muhammad Hussain Hashmi Dilgeer was a very famous poet and writer of stage drama. He was director at the top class theater of that time named “ MADAN THEATER LTD.” He knew 8 languages.

Senior lyricist, Faiyyaz Hashmi, passed away in Karachi on Nov 29 th 2011. He shot to fame after penning lyrics for such non-film songs as ;Ye Raatein Ye Mausam; (Pankaj Mullick), ;Tasveer Teri Dil Mera; (Talat Mehmood), ;Dil Ko Hai Tum Se Pyar Kyun; (Jagmohan), ;Bhala Tha Kitna Apna Bachpan; (Hemant Kumar), and so many more rendered by the likes of Juthika Roy and Feroza Begum.

Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi is a legendary song and dialogue writer and above all a true loving person. He is by himself an institution and a common asset of the Indo-Pakistan film-world. His admirers as ever are not confined in national frontiers. Those fond of Hindi / Urdu songs anywhere in the world have affection for him. The emergence of this bright star was evidenced much before independence of India, when Fayyaz Hashmi, still a teenager wrote the most famous song “Tasveer Teri Dil Mera Behla Na Sakhe Gi”. It was recorded in the voice of Talat Mehmood and music was composed by Kamal Das Gupta. This song brought “Talat” to limelight. Music for most of the Fayyaz Hashmi’s songs recorded at Calcutta was composed by Kamal Das Gupta.

The dynamic achievements of young Fayyaz Hashmi and his clarity of expression by using simple words were greatly appreciated by Qazi Nazrul Islam -“Tum mann main doob kar mann ka bhed nikaltey ho. Aasan shubdoon mein mushkil baat kehna buhut mushkil hay”. His unique combination of Urdu, Hindi and Sanskrit words to produce a harmonious song thus became a guideline for the future poets of geets. The transformation of some traditional Bangla songs was also facilitated. He has also written songs in Brij Bhasa and Purbi. His pre-independence songs total to about 1000.

Fayyaz Hashmi wrote his first verse “Chaman main Ghuncha-o-gul ka tabassum dekhne walo – Kabhi tum ne haseen kalyoon ka murjhana bhi dekha hai” when he was in 7th class. As a student of 9th class, he was participating in regular “mushairas”. He got an assignment in the British owned Gramophone Company at DumDum (now called Jessore Road, Kolkotta) India. He served there during 1943 to 1948 period. At that time the average monthly production of record was only 16. Once all the records (16) issued in a month were written by Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi- a record by itself. Some of the evergreen hit songs of Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi are quoted here:

1- Honton se gulfishan hain who – Aankhoon se ashkbar hum Talat Mahmood
2- Do Kafir Aankhoon ne mara Talat Mahmood
3- Dil ko hai tum se pyar kyoon Jag Mohan
4- Aaj use phir dekha hai Jag Mohan
5- Bhala tha kitna apna bachpan Hemant Kumar
6- Yeh Raaten yeh mausam yeh hansa hansana Pankhaj Mallick
(Also re-sung by Lata Mangeshkar as a tribute to the legendary Pankhaj Mallick)
7- Tasveer teri dil mera behla na sake gi Talat Mehmood
8- Ab yad hamein kyoon aati ho Hemant Kumar
9- Kitna dukh bhulaya tum ne Hemant Kumar
10-Maloom hay mujhko – ban Jao gi tum ek din taqdeer hamari Jag Mohan.

While in India, he wrote 48 songs in 9 Hindi films, namely-Subah Shyam-44, Meghdoot-45, Zameen Aasmaan-46, Pehchan-46, Krishna Leela-46, Arabian Nights-46, Giribala-47, Faisla-47 and Iran ki ek raat-49

He chose to migrate to Pakistan after the Partition.
In 1948, he was posted as recording Manager at Dhaka Center of the Gramophone Company and thereafter in 1951 at Lahore. He promoted many talents like Farida Khanum, Saeen Marna, Saeen Akhtar and Saeen Budha. He diverted towards the writing of film songs in 1956. “Kunwari Bewa” was the first film in Pakistan with his songs. He wrote more than 2000 songs for films and Gramophone Recording Company. He had also written stories, dialogues and scripts of many hit films like AULAD, ZAMAN KIYA KAHE GA, NEHLEY PE DEHLA, INTEKHAB, PEHCHAN, KHUDA AUR MUHABBAT, GHAREEBON KA BADSHAH etc. including “ HUM AIK HAIN” which was also directed by him. It was the first Pakistani film with 5 songs filmed in colour and as such a record in Pakistan film industry.

Every film, songs of which were written by Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi became super hit like SAHELI, AULAD, ASHIANA, SUHAGAN, HONAHAR, PEGHAM, SARTAJ, SHAREEK-E-HAYAT, EID MUBARAK, SHABNAM, LOVE IN JUNGLE, TOBA, SAWAL, LAKHOON MAIN AIK, DEWAR BHABI etc.

He received Graduate Award 3 times and also Nigar award for the best song in 1978 on “Chalo Achha Hua Tum Bhool Gaye” film “Lakhoon Main Aik”. He received International award in 1986 and another Nigar award in 1988 for the best dialogue of film “ Ghareebon Ka Badshah”. In addition to these he recounts about 11 Silver Jubilee Awards and 17 Golden Jubilee**. “Deewane Tere Pyar ke” is the latest film all songs of which have been written Fayyaz Hashmi.

The first compilation of his poetry was published as “ RAG RANG” in 1944 in India. His poems were published in various journals and magazines like Adbi Duniya, Adbe Lateef, Alamgeer, Beesveen Sadi, Shama (Delhi), Chitrali (Dhaka), Nigar (Karachi), Amar Jadeed and Amrit Bazar Patrika (Calcutta, India). He wrote many Naats and Qawwalis. He also wrote many National songs like (Ae Quiad-e-Azam tera ehsan hai ehsan” & “ Suraj Kare Salam – Chanda kare Salam”.

On the publication of his mystic verses, Mr. Raees Amrohi commented that “History of Sufi poets is indicative of a glorious future for them and Mr. Fayyaz.

(Based primarily on the article by Nadeemur Rehman, courtesy shri Rajnikumar Pandya ji and my own notes. )

Today’s NFS is composed and sung by Pankaj Mallick. According to a commenter on you tube, Pankaj Mallick has used the orchestra of Fransisco Casanovas in this song. You can hear many western instruments playing in the background. Similarly, Jagmohan Sursagar had also composed one song ” Kya maze ki baat hai” in his only Hindi films as a composer in 1955, wherein he used Waltz music.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Raaste Aur Manzil-1968’.

One song from this movie was posted on the blog more than six years ago on 21.12.2015. I had shared lyrics for that song ‘main bahot door bahot door’. Music for this movie was composed by Ram Kadam.

Ram Kadam (August 1916 – 19 February 1997) was a famous and prominent music director of Marathi movies. I love his compositions in Marathi movies. Incidentally I had been instrumental in introducing his three Hindi movies viz. ‘Sant Tulsidas-1972’, ‘Raaste Aur Manzil-1968’ and ‘Pinjara-1973’ wherein I had shared lyrics for songs posted on the blog.

I didn’t have any information about the movie ‘Raaste Aur Manzil’ at that time as I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV those days.
But now, armed with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) I am presenting another song from this movie and also details of the movie . This movie seems to be an obscure movie of its time and more details or videos of this movie seems to be unavailable.

“Raaste Aur Manzil-1968” was directed by C. Vishwanath for ‘Saira Productions, Bombay’. It had Naseer, Azra, Bharati, Janraj, Sabina, Sushma, Pratima Devi, Master Sachin, Sabnoor, Surendra Chutki, Girish, Kadam, Waghmare, Karandikar, Angre, Bal Krishna, Babu, Salim, Karnik, Yakub, Nawab, Moolchand Kapoor, Surendra Mota, Nazir Kashmiri and others.

“Raaste Aur Manzil” had five songs in it which were written by Ibrahim Faiz M.A.

Music for this movie was composed by Ram Kadam.

Here is the list of songs from this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Agar gham sataaye mera naam lena Not mentioned
02 Kaise keh doon ki mulaaqaat nahin hoti Krishna Kalle
03 Aaoonga main aaoonga Krishna Kalle
04 Main bahot door chalaa aaya hoon Mohd Rafi 21.12.2015
05 Khatm hua din jaltey jaltey … Mohd Rafi

HFGK doesn’t mention the singer’s name for the first song in the above list. Though, it does mention the name of Asha Bhonsle along with Mohd Rafi and Krishna Kalle, in the singer’s name for this movie in its foot-note for this movie-page.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and the video of this song is luckily available. (Thanks to up-loader of this song).

We can see an actor, whom I am unable to identify, shown in jail singing this song. This song is a sad song and I do not know in what context it happens in the movie. We can see others artists (as prisoners) in the picturisation of this song.

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

Let us listen to today’s song now which is a nice composition to listen to …

Ab to meri naakaam ummeedon
Ab to meri naakaam ummeedon
Pal do pal ka saath
Khatam hua din
Khatam hua din

Gham ke sahaare din beete hain
Aas liye phir bhi jeete hain
Gham ke sahaare din beete hain
Aas liye phir bhi jeete hain
Khatam ho ab to
Dukh ki chinta
Khatam ho ab to
Dukh ki chinta
Khatam ho dukh ki baat
Khatam ho dukh ki baat
Khatam hua din
Khatam hua din

Mamta ka aadhaar kahaan hai
Mera paagal pyaar kahaan hai
Mamta ka aadhaar kahaan hai
Mera paagal pyaar kahaan hai
Ek kiran hai wo bhi komal
Ek kiran hai wo bhi komal
Kaun de apna saath
Kaun de apna saath
Khatam hua din
Jaltey jaltey
Ho gayi gham ki raat
Ho gayi gham ki raat

Hello Atuldom

“Awaam” (1987) was produced by B.R. Chopra and Ravi Chopra. It was directed by B.R. Chopra and had dialogues by Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza.
It had Ashok Kumar, Shafi Inamdar, Iftikhar, Om Shivpuri and Shreeram Lagoo playing friends, and past freedom-fighters who are living on benefits that freedom-fighters used to get. Additionally, Shafi Inamdar, Om Shivpuri and Shreeram Lagoo are politicians in post-independence India and Shafi Inamdar’s character is shown to be hand-in-glove with anti-national (Gaddaar) elements and Om Shivpuri being happy reaping benefits of the Gaddaars.

Rajesh Khanna played the son of the straight-forward Iftikhar and is shown to worship Ashok Kumar. Then there are Deepak Parashar and Raj Babbar who are Rajesh Khanna’s friends. Poonam Dhillon & Smita Patil are the female characters who are slightly more than glamour dolls. There is Nana Patekar who plays an Army officer who has engaged Rajesh Khanna (an infantry man) to look into the activities of the corrupt people. Oh, I forgot to mention Maneesha kohli (character actor Dev Kumar’s daughter) played a negative character with some good dance numbers featuring her. Plus Vijay Arora, Chandrashekhar, Saeed Jaffery, Satish Shah, Rita Rani Kaul, Ashalata and Sushma Seth form the supporting cast. (As we can see it was a multi, multi-starrer).

So that is the story of the movie in short. But the movie itself was 2 & 1/2 hours long with a few people being eliminated every time the cover of the Gaddaars is blown. I know also this because my favourite D2H channel is having a festival of BR Chopra films this week- to remember the producer-director on his birth anniversary which is on 22nd April; he would have been 108. They have aired Ittefaq, Agni Pariksha, Karm, Awam and Afsana is scheduled for tomorrow. Some really ‘Hatke’ movies have been selected, and not the oft-repeated Naya Daur, Baghban, The Burning Train etc. And since it is a BR Chopra film festival I am sure that the channel must have been spoilt with a large library to choose from.

I discovered a few interesting tit-bits as I sat to write this post.

1) this was B R Chopra’s final film as director. Then he made Mahabharat the television series.
2) for about 36 years Ashok Kumar and B R Chopra worked together starting with Chopra’s first film Afsana in 1951.
3) Iftikhar was a permanent in Chopra’s films for 30 years and this was the last time they worked together.
4) Rajesh Khanna acted in a BR Chopra film after 10 years in ‘Awam’; Karm was in 1977.
5) from ‘Gumrah’ to ‘Awam’ Ravi gave music for BR Chopra films for 25 years. This was their last together.
6) This was Smita Patil’s last movie. She had completed shooting her scenes and dubbing was left. Rekha dubbed for Smita’s character.

Today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor & Asha Bhonsle and Rajesh Khanna & Poonam lip-sync. Hasan Kamal was the lyricist.

With this post we can also wish the beautiful Poonam on turning 60 a few days back. April 18th was her birthday. It is hard to imagine that she is 60. All the best to her for great times ahead.
