#the Decade of Sixties – 1961 – 1970 #

In this post we listen to a song from the movie ‘Bhagwaan Balaji-1961’.

This movie was introduced on the blog on 14.12.2013 when its song ‘Narayan ki isi murty se hoga …govinda jai govinda’ was posted on the blog.

“Bhagwaan Balaji-1961” was directed by P. Pulaiyya, B.A for ‘Padmashree Pictrues, Madras’. It had N. T. Ramarao, Savitri, and S. Varlaxmi, Shantakumari, Rishyendramani, S. Balsaraswati, Shri Gummadi, P. Suribabu, Ramna Reddy, V. Nagaiyya, Mohana, Saukar Janaki, Sandhya and others.

As per HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) this movie has as many as fifteen songs. All the songs for this movie were written by Saraswati Kumar ‘Deepak’. Music for this movie was composed by P. Nageshwar Rao.

S. Varlaxmi, Geeta Dutt, Mahendra Kapoor, P. Shantakumari, Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Suman Kalyanpur, Madhubala Chawla, Talat Mahmood, Mohd Rafi, and Manna Dey are the singers who had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Sources mention that this movie was a ‘dubbed version’ of the Telugu movie ‘Sri Venkateswara Mahatmyam-1960’.

Today we listen to the second song from this movie which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Talat Mahmood.

Today 09th May’2023 is the ‘twenty-fifth’ ‘Remembrance Anniversary of the legendary singer and actor Talat Mahmood (24.02.1924 – 09.05.1998).

On this occasion we pay our tributes to Talat Mahmood and listen to this song.

Only the audio of this song is available. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

As mentioned above lyrics for the song are written by Saraswati Kumar ‘Deepak’ and music is composed by P. Nageshwar Rao.
