Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No.65

On this date ten years ago (6 April 2013), eight songs from eight different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Post No Song Title Name of the movie Remarks
7831 Ek nek tabeeyat raaja thha Abhagin (1938) 5 songs covered out of 11 by now
7832 Naiyya dheere dheere jaana Chitralekha (1941) 4 songs covered out of 10 by now

7836 Jhoomo re jhoomne ke din aaye Fashionable Wife (1959) 4 songs covered out of 10 by now

We observe that four movies (out of eight) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago (on 6 April 2013) have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with four unYIPPEED movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (6 april 2023).

“Fashionable wife”(1959) is one of the four unYIPPEED movies and is therefore eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (6 aprl 2023).

“Fashionable wife”(1959) was produced and directed by Adarsh aka B.K.Adarsh for Adarshlok, Bombay. The movie had Jaymala in title role. Others in the movie were Abhi Bhattacharya, Anoop Kumar, Daisy Irani, Nazir Husein, Manorama, Leela Misra, Achla Sachdev, Mirza Musharraf, Iftekhar, Anand Joshi, Vijay Kaul, Mastana Azad, Murlidhar, R.S.Dubey, Nitoo, Jagdish Shrivastava, B.R.Wadia, Radhakishan etc.

The movie had ten songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Manna Dey and chorus. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Suresh-Talwar.

The song is picturised as a background song as Jaymala is seen walking on foot , determination writ large ion her face. Abhi Bhattacharya, waiting at his home wonders where she is off to.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.
