#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 76# Memories of the Seventies – Composer Rajesh Roshan #
————————————————————————————————–———————-

Welcome all and wishing all a very Happy New Year 2019!!!

May this New Year bring us all peace, prosperity, good health, and growth of our country in all areas which are concerned with the ‘common man’ and which helps to improve the ‘quality of life’ and ‘quality of living’ for the people of this country.

Within few months general elections for the parliament will also be held and people will get a chance to vote for their ‘fate’ and ‘fate’ of the country.

Let ‘positivity’ prevails and let the ‘truth’ triumphs over ‘misleading negativity’ and ‘social evils’ that are still a ‘threat’ for the ‘unity’ and ‘overall development’ of this country.

***

On the beginning of every year I always think that I should share a song which has celebration, a message in it and it should be motivational and/or inspirational too. And the better if it is a group song or having ‘chorus singing’ in it, to give it a sense of ‘collective spirit’ and ‘team spirit’ 🙂

I think the song I am presenting today serves this purpose I am looking for and it also motivates for ‘hard work’ (mehnat) to fulfil the dreams of individual and for the betterment of the society overall.

And the other reason for this article once again is ‘nostalgia’ and ‘songs that brings back memories’ …

It was not suddenly that the song came to my mind. It so happened that one day while I was travelling from my Camp place to work place and just give a look at the Sun which was shining brightly in the morning.

(Normally when I do that, giving a look at the Sun or staring it a while, the first thing coming to my mind is Kapil Dev 🙂 )

But that day when I try to stare at the Sun more, I break into singing these lines … ‘sooraj se aankhen milaa’ … yes there is song which I had heard in my childhood, but another moment I confused it with ‘oonchi oonchi baaton se kisi ka pet bharta nahin’, but corrected myself that that the two were different songs.

Somewhere the tune of both of these songs appear to be connected because both songs are composed by the same music director Rajesh Roshan.
However, I had forgotten the name of the movie of this song ‘sooraj se aankhen milaa’.

So, I checked about the song and also checked on the blog if it was already covered.
Luckily it was not and thus this opportunity for me to present it here on the blog.

This song is from the 1978 movie ‘Muqqaddar’!!!

Earlier I had planned to send this article during the festival of Diwali, however I could not send it then …

***
When I was still finishing this article, I got to listen the last episode of ‘2018’ of our Primer Minister’s ‘Man Ki Baat’ and also became aware of the recent happenings of the All India DGP/IGP Conference and the awards for ‘National Unity’. Then the PM also highlighted about the many achievements in Sports by India and I when he narrated about a twenty-year-old cyclist and the feat she achieved I real felt very proud about it and was stunned to know that she cycled almost 300 kms every day to complete world tour in 159 days (and to become the ‘first Asian’ to do so) …

At the same time, I was very sad to read a news about a ‘fact check’ for PM’s waiving a train – whether he was ‘waiving an empty train’, which was on its first journey from the newly inaugurated of ‘Bogibeel Bridge’.

This news proves how low we have fallen down in our ‘socio-political’ ‘ethics and morality’. And I am not taking side of any parties involved in this. Even this thought of raising doubt at such an event at this level is very disappointing and it is a sad comment on our day to day affairs where other serious issues are being mocked by peoples having their ‘own selfish motives’.

Let us wish that ‘false propaganda’ and ‘false allegations’ not take over the real concerning issues of our country and let people use the social media with maturity.

Well ‘neki aur badi ki ladaayi jabse duniya bani hai tabse se chali aa rahi hain, agar buraayi na ho to koi achchaayi ko na poochhe, oonchaai ko samajhne ke liye hamehsa nichhayi ko samajhna chaahiye’

And between this ‘neki and badi’ is our Police force who safeguards us and safeguards our Nation in turn from the various ‘crimes’ in our society … I salute to them all and hope they keep up the good work rising above ‘caste, creed, religion, and beliefs’, in the interest of ‘National Unity’ forever …

Our today’s movie – ‘Muqaddar-1978’ is ‘DEDICATED TO, THE TWENTY-FOUR-HOUR SOLDIERS! THE UNSUNG HEROES! THE POLICE!!

And the dialogues mentioned above are not mine … Abdul Bhai (Yunus Parvez) is saying this to Inspector Vijay Saxena (Sanjeev Kumar) in our today’s movie …

Abdul Bhai runs a ‘road side dhaba’ and Inspector Vijay is his daily customer, and when Abdul Bhai suggests Vijay that he should get married so that he doesn’t have to worry about his food …

‘meri shaadi to us din ho gayi thhi jis din main police mein bharti huaa thha’
‘Chori dakaiti murder ye sab ek wafaadaar biwi ki tarah hamesha mere saath lage rehte hai…
‘Aisaa lagta hai Abdul Bhai is duniya se achchhe aadmi uthh gaye hain’

(Sanjeev Kumar at his best and the dialogues of this movie also, I think, very nice, I thought it was Kader Khan, but no, they are by Dr. Balkrishna Mauj)

Meanwhile as Inspector is taking his dinner a ‘bhikhari budhhiya’ comes and ask for ‘kuchh khilaa do’, Vijay asks Abdul Bhai’s assistant to give her food and he will pay for it …
‘main gareeb ki madad karne ke khilaaf nahin hoon Vijay Bhai, lekin kisika haath paaon salaamat ho to use bheekh dena use kaamchor banaana hai’ … (Abdul Bhai’s sincere thoughts …)

‘Abdul Bhai aadmi ka sabse badaa dushman uska pet hai, agar wo bhara rahe to thhik hai, agar khali ho jaaye to dimaag se jhagdaa karta, aur phir kuchh karta hai jise ham pasand nahin karte’ (Inspector Vijay’s statement on reality (fact check? 😊 )

As the Bhikhari Buddhiya is crossing the road a car hits her and run away … Inspector Vijay follows the car, and as usual taking ‘Kaanoon’ in his hands ‘beats the ‘badmaash(s)’ … but then he has to face his senior – played by Jairaj – and his ‘quintessential’ questions (which are valid even today?)

‘jis buddhiya ki khaatir tumne ye sab kuchh kiya hai wo ab bhi maje se bheekh maang rahi hai, aur jinhe jail mein hona chaahiye thha wo asptaal mein pade hain’
‘Police force ko tumne apne haathon ki taaqat aajmaane ka jariyaa samjha hai’(Jairaj)

Sir un logon ne mujhe rishwat dene ki koshish ki hai, samajhte thhe Police ko kharida ja saktaa hai, is tauheen se mera khoon khaul utthaa’

Tumne unhe wahin sazaa dene ki koshish …, Ye dekho aaj ke akhbaar, ‘police maarpit ke liye hai ya rokne ke liye’, Governer, Mayor na jaane kitne phone aa chuke hain,
‘wo sab chaahte hai ke tumhaare khilaaf action liyaa jaaye’

Lekin Sir mujhe unse koi jaati dushmani nahin thhi

Jaati dushmani mujhe bhi tumse nahin hai …

Main tumhe dhaaravi ke ilaake mein transfer karta hoon, Jahaan kuchh sakht kisam ke mujrim active hai … tumhe apni taaqat aazmaane ka poora poora mauqa milega’ Ya to tumhaari sakhti se sudhar jaayenge, ya to wo log tumhe apne aap par kaabu rakhna sikha denge

So, our Inspector is now in Dharavi, and he already has a sincere and dedicated assistant there – Patil (Bharat Kapoor) … who eventually sacrifices his life since he has been asked that ‘is mujrim pe goli mat chalana’ … but mujrim fires on him …

In Dharavi we have Parishit Sahni as a ‘labour leader’ working in a ‘kapada mill’ of Amjad Khan who is also interested in ‘smuggling’ and to become the ‘wealthiest smuggler’ …
Amjad Khan has a sister – played by Rekha – who is interested in social work and has a soft corner towards labors in the ‘basti’ and Ramu Dada is there in the form of Shashi Kapoor who is a ‘spoiled’ younger brother of Parishit Sahni.
Vidya Sinha plays wife of Parishit Sahni, Shashi’s Bhabhi and Rekha’s friend. Paintal is Shashi’s lieutenant and accompanies him whenever he is driving truck and enjoying ‘mujaras’ after the day’s hard work …

Sanjeev Kumar after reaching Dharavi destroys many ‘daaru and matke ka addaas’ and declares to the goons …
“Aaj se jurm ki wo tehniyaa kat gayin hain, jinpe baithhke tum manmaani kiya karte thhe”

Ramu Dada is still not co-operating Inspector Vijay until he realises the real game of the Smugglers …
Vijay is hopeful of rehabilitating Ramu Dada and reform him to the ‘regular stream’ of ‘good people’ …

But how does it happen finally is after the today’s song and I would like the readers interest intact to watch this movie so not going in further details of this movie here … 🙂

Since the beginning of the movie many are waiting for ‘Dushehra’ festival, like Amjad Khan declares bonus to workers as he wants them to work on ‘Dushehre ki Chhutti’ and he can in hide of it arrange ‘smugglers meet’ so that no one doubts …

***
A beggar (Chandu) – deaf and dumb – always asking for money from Amar Babu (Parikshit Sahni), on his advice has given up begging and from the money given by Amar Babu is now making pictures of ‘Ganesh, Sai Baba’, and ‘Shri Ram’ made by Rangoli on the road side …

***

Peoples are celebrating ‘Dushehra’ now and that is where the today’s song happens …

‘The evil -Raavana’s effigy is set with its ten faces of ‘evils’ and Parikshit Sahni, Rekha, Vidya Sinha with the labors in the basti starts celebrating with this song and Shashi Kapoor joins in between ( coming back from his tour to Goa) , and at the end of the celebrations as the Ravana’s effigy is set to fire by the arrows of Parikshit and Shashi Kapoor, enters our Inspector Vijay Saxena – Sanjeev Kumar – for checking of the ‘truck’ driven by Shashi from Goa with smuggled items 😊

Blog Day : 3818 Post No. : 14816

“Phaansi”(1978) was directed by Harmesh Malhotra for Eastern Films, Bombay. This movie had Shashi Kapoor, Sulakshana Pandit, Ranjeet, Pran, Jeewan, Ifthikhar, Sapru, Urmila Bhatt, Sudhir, Rammohan, Mohan Sherry, Shetty, Birbal, Aarti, Rajrani, aruna Irani, Asrani etc in it. THe movie also had special appearances by Anwar Hussain, B M Vyas, Randheer, Poornima, Mohan Choti, Chaman Puri and Dev Kumar.

This movie was one of those one hundred odd movies that Shashi Kapoor had signed up after the fortuitious success of his “Chor Machaaye Shor”(1975). The success of that movie had more to do with the music but Shashi Kapoor was the biggest beneficiary. Produceers made a beeline signing up Shashi Kapoor. Shashi Kapoor signed up all the movies indiscriminately. He became so busy that he did not have “dates” to offer for the shooting of these movies. Those were the days when actors gave “dates” in units of “shifts”, but Shashi Kapoor began to give his “dates” in units of “hours” rather than “shifts”, much to the chagrin of his producers, including his elder brother Raj Kapoor, who had signed him up for “Satyam Shivam Sundaram” (1978).

I was no Shashi Kapoor fan, and I did not touc any of these Shashi Kapoor solo movies even with a barge pole.

Coming to “Phaansi”(1978), this movie was no great shakes. I did not watch it. The only thing worth remembering in this movie was a Rafi-Sulakshana Pandit duetsong, “jab aati hogi yaad meri.” This song, one out of four songs in the movie has already been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Phaansi”(1978) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a mujra dance song where Aruna Irani plays the mujre waali and Shashi Kapoor is her centre of attention. To this date, I have not understood why Hindi movie heroes (who were supposed to be men of virtue) would make their presence felt in the mujra songs of those days. 🙂


Song-Hamaari beqaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena (Phaansi)(1978) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

Lyrics

humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir
idhar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir
idhar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si
nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar

kya batlaaun mere qaatil
kaise tumko paaya hai
jab galiyaan galiyaan dil bhatka
tab is manzil tak aaya hai
ajeeb hai ye pyaar ka safar bhi dekh lena
ajeeb hai ye pyaar ka safar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo
to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

aap ke deewaane bhi
aap ke deewaane bhi
aise kahaan baaz aate hain
dil se hain jo khelte
jaan pe bhi khel jaate hain
ab chaahe qayaamat uthh jaaye
deewaane kahaan ghabraate hain
ghabraate hain
ghabraate hain
tum aaj gham ke maaron ka jigar bhi dekh lena
tum aaj gham ke maaron ka jigar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo
to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

aa aa aa aa

aa aa aa aa

aa aa
loot ke baithhe ho tum
loot ke baithhe ho tum
kis ko andheri raaton mein
lahu ye hai ke rang hai
kuchh to laga hai haathon mein
yoon hi nahi kaha jaane jahaan
kuchh dam hain humari baato mein
haan baato me
ae ji baaton mein
udegi subah tak koi khabar bhi dekh lena
udegi subah tak koi khabar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

Blog Day : 3811 Post No. : 14807

After yet another hiatus of a few months, I am back on the blog today (24 december 2018).

And I’m sure most people who know me here, will know why. 🙂

Yes, it is that big day for Hindi film music lovers all around the world today – it is the birth anniversary of Mohammad Rafi, or, as he is affectionately and reverentially referred to by many, Rafisaab.

And while I might miss out on writing on any other anniversary on this blog, this is one date I try my best to never miss. As I’ve said many times before, this is my very small, entirely insignificant, way of saying “thank you” to the person who has given me countless hours of happiness in my life.

Different people derive happiness from different things. For me, music has always been a core part of my existence for as long as I can remember. I often have a song on my lips – often sub-consciously. This has occasionally led to embarrassing situations but thankfully it has never affected my love or passion for music. And I think I’m in very good company on this one – there are so many people out there for whom music is an integral part of their daily lives.

This is also one big reason we are all here together on this blog. HFM lovers, from all parts of the world, in all age-groups, sharing their love for HFM.

And when we talk of HFM, especially during its golden age, it’s hard not to talk of Rafisaab.

This is why I write tributes to him at least twice a year. On his death anniversary, and on his birth anniversary. I do write about him on other occasions too, but if I miss out on either of these occasions, I feel I’m letting him down. For all that he has given me, can’t I even write a few words on these specific occasions to pay tribute to him?

So here I am today.

Now, what should I write?

I’ve written many posts here on Rafisaab and discussed my feelings about him. About his songs, his personality, how he managed to break in and find a special place in my heart and my life, at a time when Kishore Kumar was absolutely king. There’s nothing more I can write that will not be a repetition.

Yet, the sheer joy of writing about Rafisaab is so exhilarating that, at the risk of boring readers, I will share a few thoughts.

After all, when I watch videos of Jeetendra narrating his now-famous Deedar-e-Yaar experience with Rafisaab, or Shammi Kapoor narrating his “aasmaan se aaya farishta” story about Rafisaab, or SP Balasubramaniam talking about “deewana hua baadal”, I enjoy listening to these stories every single time. I know the stories inside out by now, but the passion and love with which these stories are narrated, is itself special for me.

It would surprise no one if I said that, as an early-1970s boy, the one male singer who was my universe at that time was Kishore Kumar. In those days I’d often listen to “current songs” – and naturally that meant his songs were playing everywhere, on every single radio programme, every single day.

Other singers like Mukesh and Manna Dey (and even Rafisaab) would also figure but almost like an exception. Kishore’s was easily THE most dominant male voice of the time.

I was very fond of Kishore Kumar – in my classroom in school, my friends would all invariably sing the latest Kishore songs.

Then one day, I think it was the afternoon 1.00-1.30 programme (I don’t remember its name), I happened to listen to an old song.

At that time I had only vaguely heard of that song. So I knew a few lines but I’d never heard its rendition before.

What was this song! What was this voice! Who was this singer!

I stood transfixed. Rongte khade ho gaye.

I knew it wasn’t Kishore. And when the announcer said “abhi aapne Mohammad Rafi ko film Baiju Baawra mein sunaa”, I realized that in my universe, the one where Kishore Kumar had until then occupied almost complete mindspace, I’d have to made room for another voice.

It wasn’t as if I hadn’t heard Rafisaab songs till then. Of course I had. But my mind had been so full of Kishore, that every other voice had been drowned out in the process. Hey, I was still a young boy then, so not particularly discerning.

That song was “o duniya ke rakhwaale”.

How I wanted to hold on to that song! To listen to it again. And again.

From the initial “bhagwaan” to the “rakhwaale, rakhwaale”, I didn’t know what hit me. The highs and lows, the peaking and the ebbing, the modulations, the way he sings “bhagwan” three times at the start – and each one is a different cry to God – there was no way this song was not going to make an impact on me.

Of course those were pre-internet days. I couldn’t just search for the song and play it again. ? And where I lived, I didn’t even have access to a music store – nor would I have been able to buy a cassette even if I’d wanted to.

At that time I could only hope that I’d get to listen to the song again. In fact, that was how things were in those days. You’d listen to a song, love it – and then hope it would come in a farmaish again. 🙂

From that moment onwards, I became a keen Rafisaab listener. I am sure the same songs that I might not have paid attention to earlier, suddenly began speaking to me. I distinctly remember songs like “suhaani raat dhal chuki” (a Vividh Bharati favourite 🙂 ) , “parbaton ke pedon par”, “ek dil ke tukde hazaar hue”, “ye teri saadgi”, amongst others.

Every single song I listened to, I fell in love with.

When I listened to “kar chale hum fida”, I had tears in my eyes. Many years later I saw the film but Kaifi Azmi’s lyrics, Madan Mohan’s music and Rafisaab’s voice – how can you remain impassive to that song?

When I listened to “jaane kya dhoondhti rehti hain”, it transported me to a different world. Again Kaifi Azmi’s lyrics are magical, and Rafisaab’s rendition elevates them to a different level altogether.

Another song I got to listen to, and was extremely fond of at that time (I still am!), was “karwaan guzar gaya”. I’ve always had a soft corner for good lyrics – and Neeraj’s lyrics, even by his high standards, are just amazing in this one.

I can reel off many more songs that I listened to – each one only further confirming to me that while Rafisaab might have had a decline in the early 70s, to even suggest that he was in any manner a lesser singer than Kishore Kumar was sheer lack of understanding of music.

My paternal grandmother, who didn’t know a word of Hindi, and didn’t know who Kishore Kumar or Rafisaab were, clearly had a discerning ear. We had a cassette of Abhimaan at home – it would play a lot. It would start with “meet na mila”, and while every song in the film is a gem in its own right, she’d always tell me to play THAT song. Yes, “teri bindiya re” – which is one of my favourite songs of the 1970s.

So this is how Rafisaab managed to break into my Kishore Kumar-dominated young mind. 🙂

And since then he has a permanent and very special place in my mind and heart. In my younger days I didn’t have access to much music other than via radio – now of course it has all changed. I spend hours listening to music, many of these hours listening to Rafisaab. No particular song or playlist – just randomly listening to his songs, one after another. One moment it could be “mere mehboob tujhe”, the next “tumhaari zulf ke saaye mein shaam”, the next “aye gulbadan”. Just listening to his voice gives me so much joy – just the way he joins in in “awaaz deke hamen tum bulao” is special for me. And the way he joins in the middle of “deewana mastaana hua dil” – it’s just so awesome!

So there’s the singer Rafisaab for me.

But my post would be incomplete if I limited it to just Rafisaab’s singing.

What makes him so much more special for me is the person he was. Obviously I never got to meet him, so this is secondhand, but there isn’t a single person who knew Rafisaab, who does not vouch for what a great human being he was. It wasn’t just his soft-spoken nature, he was kindness and generosity personified. He could easily have put on airs, he could have demanded a ransom price, such was his stature and such was the demand for his voice. Yet he was made of a different stock – “kuchh aur mitti ke hi baney the”. There wasn’t a single trace of arrogance or greed in him.

Rafisaab did not hesitate to work with upcoming composers, giving them hits in the process. He knew their financial position and would even refuse to take more than just a token from them. Throughout his career, he believed that whatever he had achieved was due to the grace of God – he would often point upwards when someone praised his singing.

No wonder then that Rafisaab is remembered today not just for his voice but also for the person he was. How often do you come across a person like this?

No wonder that on his death, crowds thronged the streets of Bombay to pay respect to him. This, despite pouring rain.

Is it any wonder that I am such a big fan of Rafisaab? And I can safely say there are many who are much bigger fans of him – main to kuchh bhi nahin.

Now onto the song for today.

It is a special occasion – so I’ve picked a song that I heard for the first time today.

I wanted to pick a song from Rafisaab’s supposedly “lean” period. For some reason, this period fascinates me. I’ve always supported the underdog – so if someone tells me that a particular singer had a bad patch in a particular phase of his career, there’s a good chance I’ll listen to songs of that singer in that particular phase. 🙂 It’s just the way my mind works.

I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it today.

It has trademark Rafisaab elements in it – and is a pleasant song to listen to. I didn’t want a sad song for the occasion, after all it’s his birth anniversary.

It’s from a film, Gunaah Aur Kanoon (1970). I have no clue about the film but going by the name, it sounds a bit like Crime and Punishment. 🙂

The song itself is definitely worth a listen. Music is by Sapan Jagmohan, who might not have been in the top rung of composers, but have created quite a few memorable tunes of their own.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did while listening to it the first time. I have already listened to it a few times now. 🙂


Song-Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin(Gunaah Aur Kanoon) (1970) Singer-Mohammad Rafi, Lyrics-Anwar Farrukhabadi, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin

Missing Films of 1960s – 85
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The next in this series is a religious film from 1970. Yes, the times were when this genre of films had a serious following, and the producers in the industry would be creating films in this category. Today’s film, ‘Shri Krishna Leela’ is from the house of Wadia’s, under their banner of Basant Pictures. As we review the data about film production under this banner, we find that this has been one of the very active production houses over the decades. [Note: I am examining the data in the Geet Kosh from 1931 to 1980 only.]

Over the years, Wadia film production company went about its business under the names as – Wadia Brothers, Wadia Brothers Productions, Wadia Films and Wadia Movietone. Collectively, these banners have been active since 1933 till the year 1971, having produced 50+ films in various genres – social, stunt, religious, mythical, costume dramas, historical etc. In 1943, the company launched another banner, named Basant Pictures. As we scan their list of films, once again we find slight variations in the banner names as – Basant Pictures, Basant Pictures (Wadia Brothers) and Basant Wadia Brothers Production. Collectively, this banner has a listing of about 60 films between 1943 and 1980. The films in this list also cover just the same set of film genres.

A brief about the House of Wadia. The ancestors of this Parsi family originally settled in Surat after migrating from Persia. The original business of Wadia family was shipbuilding. The logo of Wadia Movietone prominently carries an image of a ship – it is a representation of their origins – the legacy business that started off their fortunes. The Wadia Group’s shipbuilding business was set up in 1736 by Lowjee Nuserwanjee Wadia. Later during that century, the group shifted its base from Surat to Bombay. They built trading ships, and later in 1800s they build maritime vessels for the Royal Navy (Great Britain).

Wadia Movietone was founded in 1933 by the brothers – JBH Wadia and Homi Wadia. JBH Wadia (born 1901) was a very well educated young man, who came into the film industry in the closing years of silent cinema. He produced about a dozen silent films, with moderate success. His productions were mostly adaptations of successful Hollywood productions of that era.

The other co-founders were Manchersha Billimoria, and Burjore and Nadirshaw Tata. Their first film – ‘Laal e Yaman’ (1933) was a major commercial success. In 1935, the company produced ‘Hunterwali’ with Nadia in the title role, along with Boman Shroff and John Cawas in prominent roles. This film became a surprise hit, bringing in a huge commercial windfall for the company. In the process, it set a trend which was duplicated by Wadias themselves and also copied by many other production houses. In 1936 came ‘Miss Frontier Mail’, followed by ‘Lutaru Lalna’ in 1938, ‘Punjab Mail’ in 1939, ‘Diamond Queen’ in 1940, and ‘Bambaiwali’ in 1941. However, by this time, the repeated use of the stunt formula lost its luster, and the company started facing losses. In 1936, the Tata brothers had already moved out from the partnership. In 1942, the Wadia Movietone studio was put up for sale. V Shantaram, who was moving out of Prabhat at the same time, purchased this studio and set up his famous production house – Rajkamal Kalamandir, at this premises.

In 1942 itself, the younger brother, Homi Wadia, set up Basant Pictures as a new production house. He started producing films under this banner using studio facilities at other premises. In 1947, he eventually set up his own studio once again. Basant Studio was functional till 1981. In 1990, the studio was inherited by Riyad Vinci Wadia, the grandson of JBH Wadia. He revived film production once again under this banner. However, he too passed away in 2003. The studio now houses the Wadia Movietone and Basant Pictures archives and memorabilia collection.

The film ‘Shri Krishna Leela’ is directed by Homi Wadia. The star cast includes Master Sachin, Heena Kumari, Jaishri Gadkar, Sapru, Manhar Desai, Kumar Dighe, Deepak, Tabassum, Ratnamala, Padmarani, Uma Dutt, Shekhar, Master Bobby, Master Ratan, Tuntun, Babu Raje, Habeeb, Dalpat, H Prakash, and Prince Arjun. The songs of this film are penned by Bharat Vyas and the music is from the mind of SN Tripathi.

Today’s song is a lullaby, in the voice of Asha Bhosle. On screen, the song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar, in the role of Maa Yashoda, as she is crooning to put the infant Krishna to sleep. Close to the end of this clip, we see a little more grown up child Krishna, role played by Master Sachin.

A wonderfully soothing melody. . . listen, and relax.

Recently, I came across one of the interesting topics of discussion about the ‘ghost’ singers of Hindi film industry in an editorial in October 1945 issue of ‘Filmindia’ magazine. I reproduce below some relevant portion of the discussion for the purpose of the article:

Outside the film industry, very few people seem to know what the ‘ghost’ singers of the screen earn per month. Many people are under the impression that music is still a cheap commodity in the motion picture world and can be purchased with paltry payments. Whatever be the actual quality of the film music from purely classical point of view, the silly, insipid music which Indian film producers usually give, cost them anything from Rs,400/- to Rs.1000/- per song and very often merely for the singing voice apart from the cost of orchestration and recording.

Amir Karnataki, a popular ‘ghost’ singer charges Rs.1000/- per song which require an hour for the rehearsal and two hours for recording the song. India’s best musicians (singers) – man or women – never earned so much money even during 24 hours of non-stop singing. There are many ‘ghost’ singers in the film industry. Some of the prominent ones like Zohra Jaan (Ambalawaali), Shamshad, Zeenat, Naseem Akhtar and Rajkumari should be earning Rs.8000/- to Rs.10000/- per month in good season. Amir Karnataki’s monthly earning should be colossal the way we find selling her voice to all and sundry pairs of lips on the screen.

The editorial has further estimated that with the number of films produced in a year, assuming an average of 9 songs per films, the total cost of music during a year comes to about Rs.6,50,000 with an average payment of Rs.500/- per song. This amount is shared by a dozen female playback singers and about half a dozen male playback singers, most of whom, according to the editorial, are rotten singers.

The editorial smacks of the jealous attitude towards the popular playback singers of that time. I have, however, brought this out for a different reason. If the producers thought that these were the popular playback singer those days and deserved such kind of payments, then why did producers refrain from giving them publicity to add value to their films in terms of creating the audience’s interest ?. Names of playback singers did not appear in the credit titles of the films until sometime early 1950s. Based on a few cases which I had come across, I guess, the song pamphlets of the films of the 1930s and the 40s may have mentioned mostly the names of the actors on whom the songs were picturised. So the playback singers during these times remained really the ‘ghost singers’ without any official identity with the films’ music. But why did they remain ‘ghost singers’?

The concept of ‘ghost singers’ has to be seen in the background of how the music in sound films evolved in its early stages. During this stage, actors were required to sing the songs on themselves in the films. Although the playback system was introduced in 1935 in Calcutta and in 1937 in Bombay, the system got well-established only in the early 1940s. However, the convention of giving credit to the actors as singers either in their own names or in the names of the roles they performed on the screen continued in most cases well into the end of the 1940s. The convention created a lot of problems in the latter years in identifying the so called ‘ghost singers’ especially for those who had interest in listening to the songs of pre-golden era period of Hindi film music. It was only after Lata Mangeshkar became a force to reckon with in the sphere of playback singing in early 1950s, the system of giving credit to playback singers both in the credit titles of the films as well as on the gramophone record labels was put in place.

It is in the context of identifying the playback singers and also music directors/lyricists that Har Mandir Singh ‘Hamraaz’ of Hindi Film Geet Kosh has rendered yeoman service in documenting the Hindi film music up to 1985. The process of documenting the Hindi film music – especially of 1930s and 1940s are an on-going process as we still come across many songs of these periods where playback singers, lyricists and music directors have not been identified.

Recently, I came across 4 rare songs of an obscure film ‘Mohini’ (1947). All the songs are very melodious. However singers for the songs have not been identified. There were three lyricists – Bekal, Sarshar Sailani and Raj Hashmi and two music directors – Lachhiram Tamar and Bhai Lal. But the individual songs were not identified with any one of the lyricists and music directors.

It was so frustrating for me for not being able to formally identify those associated with four melodious songs of the film. So I contacted Sudhir ji for help in identifying at least the singers of the songs. Though he had all the four songs in his collections, none of them were tagged. So he contacted one of his collector-friends who identified not only Munawwar Sultana as singer for all the four songs, but also confirmed that all the four songs were composed by Lachhiram Tamar. I am thankful to Sudhir ji and his friend for the help.

‘Mohini’ (1947) was produced under the banner of Mahindra Pictures, Lahore and was directed by Mahindra Gill. The star cast included Chand Kumar, Mahapara, Pran, Roofi, Nazar, Niranjan, Baby Shamshad etc. The film had 7 songs.

I am presenting the first song from the film,’meri mast aankhon se aa pee bhi le’ sung by Munawwar Sultana to appear in the Blog. As mentioned earlier, there were three lyricists and the song writer for this song has not been identified. The song was set to music by Lachhiram Tamar. The prelude music of the song would give an impression that the song belongs to the music style of early 1950s.

Enjoy this ‘Aankh’ song with ‘masti’.

With this song, ‘Mohini’ (1947) makes a debut in the Blog.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 30
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ल’ – लीजिये दिल का नज़राना, लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

आवाज़ दे कर हमें तुम बुलाओ ॰ ॰ ॰ 

Ah yes, that is what the heart desires, but sadly, that will happen no more. . . you are so far away now, that our supplications so sent, do not reach you any more.

– – – –

OK, wow, another gem from the radio listening days. And what a wonderful reminder this song is. The film is ‘Naya Kanoon’ from 1965, and Rafi Sb is accompanied by Asha Bhosle in this song. Given that Madan Mohan is the music director, I am a little surprised that Lata does not figure in this film at all. Eight songs in all, with four female solos, and one duet (this one) – all carry the voice of Asha Bhosle. Possibly this recording may have been done during the time when there was a stand off between Lata ji and Rafi Sb. Still surprising that Madan Mohan did not get Lata to sing even one of the solo songs. Or possibly, other reasons, circumstances may have intervened.

The film is directed by RC Talwar for the banner of Manchanda Productions, Bombay. The main star cast is listed as Ashok Kumar, Vaijayantimala, Bharat Bhushan, Poornima, Nishi, Leela Mishra, Badri Prasad, Kamal Mehra, and Om Prakash among others. There are eight songs in this film, or may be seven, because one song is a multi version song sung as a solo by both Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle. All songs are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri, except one, which is written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak.

On screen, this song is filmed a recording studio song. The two singers – Bharat Bhushan and Vijayantimala, are recording this song in a studio. Or maybe the song is being broadcast live.  As we see the three stanzas, there are short visual interludes, and the dresses of the two artistes are different in each stanza. The intervening scenes convey a message as if displaying the rising popularity, as well as prosperity of the singer.

Bharat Bhushan in this 1965 film is a distant call from his heydays of ‘Baiju Baawra’ in 1952. Decidedly not looking any younger, but he is also looking much more morose. As the visual clip starts and the music comes on, the mind gets into position for a fast paced light hearted duet. But the expression on the face of the hero conveys as if he is going to break into “Maayoos To Hoon Waade Se Tere. . .” 🙂 🙂 .

Regardless, a very breezy composition which will tickle a few memories in the minds of radio listeners.  Listen and relive those memories.

 

Song – Lijiye Dil Ka Nazraana, Lijiye Aankh Ka Shukraana  (Naya Kanoon) (1965) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics 

lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi

aankh ne dekha to dil ne paa liya
meethi baaton ne hamne behka liya
pyaar mein hum bhi tumhaare ho gaye
tum miley to hum khushi se kho gaye
kadmon mein khada hai deewaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

dil bade armaan se laaya hoon main
ye kali toofaan se laaya hoon main
meri palken jhuk rahi hain laaj se
tum hamaare ho chuke ho aaj se
aaya hai shama ka parwaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

aur bhi duniya mein laakhon chaand hain
aapke aage magar wo maand hain
aur bhi duniya mein laakhon phool hain
aapke aage magar wo dhool hain
haazir hai tumhaara mastaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

Today (31 october 2018) is the 43rd remembrance day of S D Burman (1 october 1906- 31 october 1975).

As a tribute, we already had a long and interesting article on S D Burman by our inhouse HFM historian cum researcher Mr Sadanand Kamath.

SLBC (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation too spent almost the whole broadcast duration today by playing 27 S D Burman compositions today out of 28- the last being a K L Saigal song, of course. 27 S D Burman composition out of 670 odd HFM songs that S D Burman composed in his career work out to about 4 % of all S D Burman HFM songs.

My way of paying tributes to HFM artists is to present detaile filmography of those artists. It is no different today. Here in this aricle I will provide full filmography of S D Burman as far as Hindi movies are concerned.

S D Burman composed musuc in 89 released movies and one unreleased movie, as far as I can tell. As many as 74 of these movies are already YIPPEED in the blog. Overall, S D Burman composed some 670 songs in these movies. This blog has 626 of these songs. The blog also has 5 non film songs composed by S D Burman.

So in summary, only around 45 SD Burman HFM songs from 15 movies are left to be covered. All of these songs may not be available. My guess is that another 30 odd songs out of these 45 may be available and then S D Burman willjoin artists like K L Saigal and Suraiyya whose available songs are fully represented in the blog.

Here are the details of S D Burman songs from his hindi movies :-

As a tribute to S D Burman,I have chosen a song from “Naughty Boy”(1962).

“Naughty Boy”(1962) was produced and directed by Shakti Samanta. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Kalpana, Omprakash, Sundar, Madan Puri, Kanu Roy, Krishnkant, Kundan, Praveen Paul, Shivraj, Sulochana Cahtterji, Prretibala, Nand Kishore, Masud, Paachhi, Manjula, Samar Chatterji, Kamaldeep, etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The song is picturised on Kishore Kumar and others. One can see, among others, Edvina in the picturisation of this song. I am not familiar with others visible. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors in the picturisation.


Song-Nazren milaa ke jo duniya ki nazron se dare (Naughty Boy)(1962) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

nazre milaa ke jo duniya ki nazron se dare

nazren milaa ke jo duniya ki nazron se dare
milna na chaahe jo milne ke vaade hi kare
wo to buzdil hai

zaalim hamaare dil ko na todo
chhupna chhupaana chhodo

zaalim hamaare dil ko na todo
chhupna chhupaana chhodo
tere bin ab mera jeena mushqil hai
jeena mushqil hai
nazren milaa ke jo duniya ki nazron se dare
milna na chaahe jo milne ke vaade hi kare
wo to buzdil hai
bada buzdil

seekha hai humne jab tumpe marna
phir dard se kya darna

This “historical” movie had Nimmi, Bharat Bhushan, Anita Guha, Ulhas, Chandrashekhar, Achla Sachdev, Manmohan Krishn, Prem Adib, Kesri, Rammohan, Vinod Kumar, Sheela Kashmiri, Bimla, Helen etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Angulimaal”(1960) to appear in the blog. According to HFGK (and dutifuly copied by others), this song is sung by Meena Kapoor and chorus, but one can clearly notie the voice of Asha Bhonsle too in the last stanza.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

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

Song-Aankhen ro ro haar gayin (Majboori)(1954) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

aankhen ro ro haar gayin
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin

rote armaanon aao
lag jaao kaleje se mere
rote armaanon aao
lag jaao kaleje se mere
jo tumne gharonde baandhe thhe
haaye wo gharonde choor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin

jis duniya mein humne laakhon
shauk se phool khilaaye thhe
jis duniya mein humne laakhon
shauk se phool khilaaye thhe
ek bujhe dil ko lekar
hum us duniya se door huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
