Today’s song is from an obscure film Yaad-42, the first directorial adventure of actor – director Mazhar khan. He also acted as a Hero in this film, opposite Veena. Others in the film were Satish, Azuri, Indira Devi, Shehzadi, Haadi, Haroon, Ram Avtar, Devraj etc.etc. Lyricist for its 9 songs was Munshi Arzoo Lucknowi and the music was by K.Datta aka Datta Korgaonkar. Two songs of this film are already discussed, first one in 2014 and the second in 2016.

Neither have I seen this film, nor I could get any information on this film on internet or any book. Obviously, it seems to be just one of those films which come and go without leaving its mark on the way. In those days, like any other year, such non-descript films were made in plenty. Only few films were noticeable and discussed by critics in the Media, i.e. in Newspapers, because this was the only media available in those days.

As said in the beginning, Yaad -42 was not only the first directorial venture for Mazhar Khan, but it was also the first Debut Hindi film for its Heroine Veena. How Veena joined films and how she came to Bombay is a very interesting story. In one of the interviews she gave in November 1981, to Urdu film magazine ‘ Shama ‘, she herself has described all this. Let us also read it once again…

Veena was born as Tajwar Sultana, on 4-7-1926, at Quetta in Baluchistan (now in Pakistan). Her father was in Railways, so he was transferred many times and her education was done at various places, including Delhi. After her Matriculation, she was sent to a women’s college, with Hostel, in Amritsar. In those days, her brother Shehzada Iftekhar was an assistant Cameraman at Northern India Studios, Lahore. This studio advertised for a Heroine, for their new Punjabi film ” Gawandi “. (This brother Iftekhar is many times mistaken for actor Iftekhar- who was totally different. The story of love for Suraiya is of this brother and not that actor Iftekhar.)

A Bangali lecturer from Veena’s college had applied. A few days later, a team (including her brother) from Lahore came to interview her, but she was rejected as she did not know Punjabi well enough. Veena was very keen to apply, but her brother warned her about the family resistance. She prodded him to give her photo to the visitors. Seeing her photo, she was called to Lahore for screen Test. All this was without letting the family know.

One Saturday, Veena left for Lahore. Next day she gave the screen test, mouthing dialogues written by Wali Saheb. She was selected and offered the role. One of the producers- Sheth Kishorilal, suggested to change her name for the screen as Veena ( it was his daughter’s name) and she became Veena.

She completed film ‘Gawandi-42’, opposite Hero Shyam, in just one month and in the next one month, she did another film ‘ Ravi Paar-42′, opposite Hero S.D.Narang. All this was without family’s knowledge, but she was aware of the impending storm. She returned to college. News about her film work had already reached the college. She was thrown out of the college and the hostel for this.

When she returned home, as expected there was a great scene. She was scolded and locked in a room. Her family wanted to get her married, which she vehemently opposed. Her family went to the producers and demanded that the films be destroyed. Of course, this was was not accepted. Meanwhile, Veena had received film offers from Mazhar Khan, Mehboob, Bombay Talkies and Rajneet. She left her house with brother and reached Bombay. Mazhar khan paid her Rs.2000 per month with a Bungalow and a Car. She did her first Hindi film ” Yaad “-42. Then came Najma-43 from Mehboob, Rajputani-44 from Ranjit etc etc. She earned One lakh rupees per film.

Veena did about 100 Hindi films in her career, till she retired in 1983. Even after her husband, Al Nasir’s death in 1957, she continued to stay and work in India with her children. Veena died on 14-11-2004. ( adapted from her interview in Shama, November 1981. Thanks to book ” ye un dinon ki baat hai” by Yasir Abbasi).

In Hindi cinema world, some artistes are known for some specialty. They may not be great artistes, but certain aspect of their career is so famous that they are remembered. For example, ” Dattu Theka” of composer Dattaram was and is very famous in film music. He was a small time composer but became famous for this. Similarly another such person was Datta Korgaonkar alias K.Datta as he was popularly known. He was famous for his passion and intense attachment to Nurjehan’s singing. Though he composed her songs in only 2 films, after she left india, Datta almost felt like a paralytic person and virtually lost interest in his music.

K.Datta or Datta Korgaonkar alias Anna saheb, was born in Sawantwadi in Konkan area on 4-6-1908. He grew up learning to sing. His mother was a Bhajan singer. He started singing on stage during Ganesh utsav melas. He was called to Kolhapur in 1937 to give music to a Marathi film, Chandrarao Morey’-38. His first break in Hindi came in 1939 with Mera Haq,followed by Alakh Niranjan-40, Geeta-40 ( in Hindi and Marathi) and Yaad-42.

He first came face to face with Noorjehan in Naadaan-43. He was simply mesmerised with her voice and singing style. He composed 7 songs for Noorjehan. After doing Zameen-43 and Maharathi Karna-44, he again composed 4 songs for Noorjehan in film Badi Maa-45. His songs ‘ Diya jalakar aap bujhaya’ and ‘ aa intezar hai tera’ are evergreen songs of Nurjehan. He also gave a break to Lata and Asha to sing in a chorus with Noorjehan. It is very sad that initially, K.Datta’s name was not mentioned on the 78 RPM records of Badi Maa. Only on the ‘re-issue’ records his name came up.

His other films were Yateem-45,Shaahkaar-47,Rangmahal-48,meri kahani-48,Daaman-51,Gumaasta-51,Rishta-54,Harihar Bhakti-56 and Ajanabi-66. In film Daman-51, he gave the First duet of Lata and Asha. In all K.Datta gave independently music to just 17 films,plus one film Badmash-44,with Khan Mastana. His Marathi films were 12 from 1938 to 1965. After retirement in 1965,he spent his time in Bhakti, Pooja and Asrology. He used to have special Pooja on every Thursday,when Bhajans were sung. Many composers and other film industry people used to be his visitors. Naushad, C.Ramchandra, Madan Mohan, Sajjad Hussain etc were the regular visitors to Annasaheb. He died on 23-12-1978.

He was a Noorjehan believer to the core. To date K Datta remains the only top composer from Maharashtra to whom Noorjehan came first, Lata later. No one regretted Partition more than K Datta. Indeed, his creativity seemed to come to an end once Noorjehan left him high and dry by moving, with a song on her lips, to Pakistan. He once said, “Noor Jehan left for Pakistan and took my creativity with her”. The four Noorjehan numbers, as fashioned by K. Datta, are historically most important. Because it was hearing and absorbing these four nuggets of Noorjehan, while acting with her in `Badi Maa’, that Lata Mangeshkar learnt to shape her vocal technique. If Lata came to sound a Noorjehan replica for so long, the tonal base for this was laid, just imagine, by a robustly tall Maharashtrian from the ghats called K Datta in `Badi Maa’.The last number of Noorjehan fetched him the ultimate tribute from no less a movie stalwart than Mehboob Khan, who said: “Bhai Datta, yeh gaana to aap ne Khuda ke darbar mein baithe hue banaya lag raha hai” (“It sounds as if you created this song sitting in Allah’s abode”). K Datta used to play Ek anokha gham ek anokhi musibat ho gayi on a harmonium presented to him by O.P. Nayyar. How grimly significant that the one music director, O.P. Nayyar, who never in his life commissioned Lata, should have gifted that harmonium to the one Maharashtrian composer who believed only in Noorjehan!

There is one odd name in the cast of this film- Hadi. His full name was Mohammed Hadi. He was also known as Master Hadi, due to his knowledge of Music and singing. In early Talkie films, he gave music to films, singly and with other composers and also sang songs. But mainly, he was an actor from the Silent era. No wonder he was seen in some films of the First year of Talkie films of 1931, like Draupadi, in which he had played the role of Shakuni. he sang 3 songs also. He was seen in other films like Abu hasan-31, and Daulat ka Nasha-31. His acting in saubhagya Sundari-33 and Sulochana -33 was much appreciated. He is estimated to have acted in about 30 films till 1947.

The other interesting name that appears in the cast is of Shehzadi. The original actress Shehzadi was the sister of Alam Ara-31 heroine Zubeida and Sultana. All 3 sisters retired from films in or around 1936.

This Shehzadi was different. She was born in Bombay and was well conversant with Hindi, Marathi, Urdu, Gujarati, Bangla and English. She joined Bombay Talkies and made her debut in film Jhoola-41. She was in the famous Dance-song ” Main to Dilli se dulhan laya re” along with Mumtaz Ali. She worked in films of Chitra productions,Saubhagya Pictures, Star Productions and Asiatic productions. She was Heroine of Gope in film ” Haso Haso aye duniya walon”-47.

Her acting in Saheli-42 and Yaad-42 was much appreciated. She did 26 films from 41 to 47 period. She started her own Ratnakar Productions in 1947 and made film ” Utho Jaago”-47, with actor Ashiq Hussain as a Hero. Soon after Partition, she married Ashiq Hussain and they migrated to Pakistan.

Yet one more name is Indira Devi. She was an Anglo-Indian from Calcutta with original name-Eugenia Peterson. She started with Silent films in 1927 ,like Jaidev, jana,Punarjanma, Kapal Kundala, Ganesh janma, Rajsinha, Waman Avtar etc etc. She got married in 1930 and stopped working in films till 1935, to raise a family. She changed her name to Effie Hippolite, but for films she took name of Indira Devi. She started with film Wamaq Azra-35. She went on to do 21 films till 1947, after which there is no information about her. Probably, she migrated to Britain.

Today’s song is sung by Saraswati Rane. This is the 3rd song from this film to be posted here.

“Gunjan” (1948) was a Nalini Production movie. It was directed by V Desai. The movie had Trilok Kapoor, Nalini Jaiwant, David Abraham, Pande, Balraj Sahni, Veena Kumari, Purnima, Narmada Shanker etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. hree of these songs have been covered.

Here is the fourth song from “Gunjan” (1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Nalini Jaiwant. S R Saaz is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ashok Ghosh.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on Nalini Jaiwant herself who was not only the leading lady of the movie but also the producer of the movie. Nalini Jaiwant is considered an occasional singer but she has sung this song like an accomplished singer. This song is arguably the best of all the Nalini Jaiwant songs that she has sung in HFM.


Song-Jal barsaaye nainwa man mein kaisi aag lagi(Gunjan)(1948) Singer-Nalini Jaiwant, Lyrics-S R Saaz, MD-Ashok Ghosh

Lyrics

aa
jal barsaaye nainwa
man mein kaisi aag lagi
man mein kaisi aag lagi
man mein kaisi aag lagi
kyun aa gayi jawaani mujhpar
liye dukhon ka haar aar
gaya kahaan wo bhola bachpan
kit gayen laado pyaar
uljhan mein hai jaan phansi
phir ye kaisi aag lagi
man mein kaisi aag lagi
man mein kaisi aag lagi

aa aa
main samjhi thhi prem kali se
mahak uthhegi kyaari
jaane ekaaek hua kya
kali bani chigaari
hey
ghar ke deepak se ghar jalta hai
dhuaan nikal na paaye
ae
ghut ghut kar marti abla sa
nikle na munh se haay
uljhan mein hai jaan phansi
phir ye kaisi aag lagi
man mein kaisi aag lagi
man mein kaisi aag lagi ee
man mein kaisi aag lagi

“Naag Mohini”(1963) was directed by Shantilal Soni for Dimple Films Bombay. This “pauraaanik” movie had Vijaya Chadhary, Mahipal, Sundar, Rajan Haksar, Bablu, Uma Dutt, Indira Bansal, Rajrani, Sood, Khursheed etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Naag Mohini”(1963) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Rafi. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. It is almost certain though that the song must have been picturised on the lead pair of Vijaya Chaudhary and Mahipal.

tum samay ki ret par chhodte chalo nishaan
dekhti tumhen zameen
dekhta hai aasmaan

These uplifiting lines are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak. The poetry composed sometimes in the early 1950s, was presented as a song in the 1953 film ‘Naya Raasta’. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is a song writer who has been confined to mythological and religious fare for most of his career. Active in the Hindi cinema since 1943, his songs can be heard in films all the way to the end of 1970s.

Remembering Saraswati Kumar Deepak today (8th July) on the anniversary of his passing away. And incidentally, yesterday (7th July) was his birth anniversary also.

He was born on 7th July 1918, at Navsthala Hasanpur in district Bulanshehar in Uttar Pradesh. His original name was Ram Gopal Sharma. Not much information is available about his early years. His education was in Hindi and Sanskrit. He did his BA from Meerut College. As a young man, he had begun writing poetry and prose.

In early forties he came to Bombay, and in 1942 he joined the production house of Fazli Brothers. His first assignment was as the writer of advertisements and promotional material in Hindi, for the films produced by Fazli Brothers. His first song appeared in the film ‘Zabaan’ of 1943 – “Dheere Se Kadam Badhaata Chal, Bigdi Taqdeer Banaata Chal”, which was composed by C Ramchandra and sung by Ishwarlal and Kaushalya. His next song – “Soti Hun Ab Chanda Mujhe Jagaa Dena”, appeared 1944, in the film ‘Badi Baat’. The song was rendered by Amirbai under the direction of Feroze Nizami. This song became very popular in its time, and the name of its writer started getting known somewhat in the industry.

In 1945, his songs appeared in ‘Piya Milan’ and ’Swarn Bhoomi’. However, 1946 became a defining year for him. Four films were released that carried songs written by him – ‘Bhakt Prahlad’, ‘Dev Kanya’, ‘Maansarovar’ and ‘Uttra Abhimanyu’. As the names of these films suggest, yes, they had an effect to have Saraswati Kumar typecast as a writer for religious and mythological films. This categorization he was never able to shake off for the rest of his career.

That is not to say that he did not write other type of songs for other genres of films. The songs “Kahin Ka Deepak Kahin Ki Baati” (‘Aag’, 1948), “Raat Gayi Phir Din Aata Hai” (‘Boot Polish’, 1953, and “Nigaahon Se Dil Mein Chale Aayiega” (‘Hameer Hath’, 1964) are a sampler that represents that wide portfolio of genres he could handle. He has written close to 350 songs for about 100 Hindi films. Besides that, he translated and dubbed the songs and the dialogues for about 25 regional language films.

Saraswati Kumar was not just a song writer. He was also a screenplay writer, a dubbing specialist and a renowned author of literature for children. Books like ‘Haathi Ghoda Paalki’ and ‘Jai Janani, Jai Bharati’ became quite popular and famous. He used to write a lot for All India Radio – plays, songs, sponsored programs etc. for two years, he anchored the program ‘Apni Kahaani, Apni Zubaani’ – sponsored by Bank of Baroda. And above all, as a journalist, he continuously contributed stories and articles for newspapers and magazines.

He passed away in 1986, just after completing his 68 year.

The film ‘Bansari Bala’ is produced by Moghabhai Deasi under the banner of Desai Productions, Bombay, and is directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of actors listed for this film is Chitra, Daljeet, Maruti, Niranjan Sharma, Krishna Kumari, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Mishra, Kamal, Meenu Mumtaz, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Susheel Kumar, Nadir Mota, Razia, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Jugnu, Shashimala, Savitri, Jagdish Kamal, Heera Sawant, Sheela Waaz, Suresh Nigam, Master Rajesh, and Al Nasir.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Six songs are written by Pandit Faani and the remaining three are by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. Music direction is by Kamal Mitra. All the three songs which are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak have been sung by Sudha Malhotra. One of these three is already showcased here on our blog – “Main To Chanda Ki Nagri Se Aayi Re”.

 Today’s lilting song is in the sweet singing voice is of Sudha Malhotra. Words are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak, and the signature melody is by Chitragupt. On screen, the song is performed by Chitra, who tells about her heart after someone came to her dreams and cast a captivating spell on her. The song is filmed in a garden. And we can see the subject of her aspirations (Daljeet) also present there, although she is not aware as she continues with the song.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by Nitin Shah.

Listen and enjoy.

“Shankar Shambhu”(1976) was directed by Chaand for A K Movies Bombay. The movie had Feroz Khan, Vinod Khanna, Sulakshana Pandit, Bindu, Jagdeep, Ajeet, Anwar Hussain, Suhir, Sulochana, Jayshree T, Shantanu, Jankidas, Viju Khote, Kishore Sinha etc with guest appearances by Pradeep Kumar and Lalita Pawar.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Shankar Shambhu”(1976) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a mujra song on Bindu and Vinod Khanna.

It appears to be a rare song in the sense that it is one of rare occasions when Sahir Ludhianvi must have penned lyrics for Kalyanji Anandji.

This song appears to be a forerunner of the “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”(1978) mujra song “Salaam e ishq meri jaan zara kubool kar le”.


Song-Mera dil churaa kar na aankhen chura (Shankar Shambhu)(1976) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura

dekh dil ko laga kar na dena daga
dekh dil ko laga kar na dena daga
sab kahenge tujhe bewafa bewafa

mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura

hamne de di hai tujhko jubaan
ho hamne de di hai tujhko jubaan
tere kadmon mein niklegi jaan aan
tere kadmon mein niklegi jaan
dil ka naazuk sa hai ye aayina
dil ka naazuk sa hai ye aayina
tod dena na ae meharbaan aan

ban ke toota agar silsila silsila
ban ke toota agar silsila silsila
sab kahenge tujhe bewafa bewafa

mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura

gair ke ghar na rakhna kadam
ho gair ke ghar na rakhna kadam
ye sitam sah na paayenge hum m

toone gar hamko dhokha diya

zahar kha lenge teri kasam m
zahar kha lenge teri kasam
jab janaaza uthha pyaar ka pyaar ka
jab janaaza uthha pyaar ka pyaar ka
sab kahenge tujhe bewafa bewafa
bewafa bewafa
mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura

Blog Day :

3979 Post No. : 15065

Today’s song is from film ‘Aaj Ki Baat’ (1955).

In one of his earliest posts, Atul ji had said that the Indian people like to talk about 3 things – politics, films and cricket. How true it was. . . till Whatsapp and Facebook became an obsession for most people in India. Now you see different, sometimes even strange topics being discussed with taste. Additionally, there are wise people to give you free doses of a variety of knowledge. In all this crowd, sometimes one finds even a few intelligent posts too !

Recently, I saw a video by National Geographic. It showed how a mother bear saves her wayward baby bear, from almost certain clutches of a hungry lion. Motherly love or love for children is a common factor among animals and humans. While animals try to protect their babies from enemies, starvation and life threatening situations, human parents try to provide the goodies of life and a paying career line to their children.

Film people are no different in this. Almost every successful star wishes that his children join this line and be famous and successful. However, they forget that in their own case they had struggled hard to earn their place in the life and more importantly they forget that talents are not necessarily hereditary !

When I chose today’s Talat song from film ‘Aaj Ki Baat’, I realised that this was the launching film for Ajit Chitnis – son of ace actress Leela Chitnis. Unfortunately, the film career of Ajit Chitnis never took off beyond his first and the only film. Actually, Ajit was a qualified commercial pilot, but he could not get a job in any air line. Consequently, he became a victim of alcoholism and was spoiled further. To help him settle in life, his mother-Leela Chitnis tried to bring him in film line. When she noticed her contemporary, Shobhana Samarth produced a film ‘Hamari Beti’ (1950), to launch her daughter Nutan, Leela too decided to produce a film to launch one of her two sons as an actor. She chose Ajit as he was elder and needed help. Manvendra (Leela used to call him as ‘Meena’) was not launched ceremoniously, but later he acted in 4 films in side roles. In his last film,’Ramu To Deewana Hai’ (1980) he even shared the credits with his mother. The history of most star sons in films is not very encouraging. In fact, success and failure ratio may be 10 to 90 percent in success and failures.

It is said that ‘No tree can grow under a Banyan tree’. This is absolutely true and applicable in film industry. Except in cases like the Kapoor family, i.e. Raj, Shammi and Shashi,who made their bright careers despite the shadow of their father and other brothers, we find that many of the sons, daughters, brothers or sisters of many popular and famous film stars were failures and never made it big in Hindi cinema.

We know cases like Suneil Anand, Nasir Khan, Tony Walker, Naina Sahu, Meera Joglekar, Ajit Chitnis, Rajendranath, Narendranath, Anoop Kumar, Mallika, Khursheed Jr., Simple Kapadiya, Shivangi Kolhapure,  Preeti Ganguly and many more. In spite of having all the backing of the famous family member, these and such many others just did not make it, because Talents are not always hereditary !

They all were given a fair opportunity to display their talent on the screen , but unfortunately despite their honest effort  their skill could not come out  & the viewers were left unimpressed . They were selected by big banners and well experienced directors were there to guide them. But  their talent remained hidden inside them and with their nonexistent artistry they disappointed their mentors. Non-actor Sohan Kapila was in the romantic lead of Filmistan’s ‘Babar’, which was released in 1960. This film was directed by Hemen Gupta, the distinguished director, who earlier had directed ‘Anand Matth’ (1952) for Filmistan. The film, also had the winning combination of Sahir and Roshan.  Dependable character actor Gajanan Jagirdar played the role of the great Mughal Emperor Babar . But the movie flopped, as the new hero failed pathetically to register  any emotion on his face. A big jolt for Seth Tola Ram Jalaan, who was already facing financial problems. Mr. Kapila appeared in 2-3 movies in inconsequential roles and disappeared from scene for ever. His daughter Padmini Kapila also pursued a career in films, but could not achieve much success .

There were many other actors like him, who got a chance to appear opposite illustrious heroines, unfortunately their effort did not make any impact on the cine loving public. Watching their miserable performance on the screen, no film maker came forward to sign them.  Out of sight is out of mind, it was matter of time when public as well as film industry forgot them.

‘Malhaar’, as the name suggests, is a musical film produced by the great singer Mukesh in 1951 . It had story by veteran actor SK Prem and its evergreen music was composed by Roshan. The movie had new comers Arjun and Shammi (Nargis Rabaadi). Arjun did get another chance in ‘Daku Ki Ladki’ (1954) to please the viewers with his emoting before the camera, but could not succeed and it was end of his career.

Rattan Chopra, the lucky boy was selected for films, among hundreds of aspirants. Mohan Kumar had suffered a huge set back when ‘Aman’ flopped. He  took the newcomer for ‘Mom Ki Gudia’ (1972) opposite Tanuja, with great hopes.  Unfortunately, the film failed to dispel the gloom and sank to the rock bottom. Acting was not his cup of tea, Rattan Chopra understood and wisely opted out of the race of stardom.

Director Amarnath introduced new comer Vijay Kumar in his 1954 offering ‘Alif Laila’ opposite Nimmi and Asha Mathur.  Sohan Kapila and Vijay Kumar had impressive physique, but had no clue about acting. The movie had lilting music by Shyam Sunder, which was his last contribution towards film industry. Helen for the first time got a chance to perform solo in the movie and for many decades she remained on top. But for Vijay Kumar it was his first & last chance.

Another non actor Premendra was introduced by old timer Vijay Bhatt in ‘Holi Aayee Re’ (1970), which was directed by his younger sibling Harsukh Bhatt.  It was pathetic to watch Premendra unsuccessfully trying to show case his imaginary ability in the field of acting .The movie flopped phenomenally and a huge investment made by Bhatt Brothers went up in a cloud of smoke.

There were some more like Pratibha Sinha, Archan Gupta, Jayant Gupta, Ashok Sharma,  Nusrat Kardar, Rajeev Kapoor, Manish Kumar, Navin Chandra, Aroop Kumar, Prashant, Shalini, Kaycee Mehra, Vikram, Shekhar Suman, Deepak Kumar, Ajay, Som Dutt and many more. Among them, some film names which I remember off hand are Deepak Kumar in ‘Aabroo’ (1968), ‘Ajay’ in ‘Wapas’ (1969), Som Dutt in ‘Mann Ka Meet’ (1968), Vikram in ‘Julie’ (1975), Rajeev Kapoor in ‘Raam Teri Ganga Maili (1985), Shekhar Suman in ‘Utsav’ (1984), Kaycee Mehra in ‘Chhabilee’ (1960) and Mem Didi (1961), Prashant in ‘Sehra’ (1963), Ashok Sharma in ‘Hamari Yaad Aayegi’ (1961), Ajit Chitnis in ‘Aaj Ki Baat’ (1955), Nusrat Kardar in ‘Dard’ (1947), Manish in ‘Saraswati Chandra’ (1968), Rajiv in ‘Nayi Umar Ki Nayi Fasal’ (1965), Aroop Kumar in ‘Bezubaan’ (1962) etc. There could be more such examples. Readers can give their comments.

According to what Leela Chitnis wrote in her autobiography, ‘Chanderi Duniyet’ (‘चंदेरी दुनियेत’), during the period 1952-53 she was in a very bad financial position. Her health had worsened due to a wrong operation and then a corrective surgery. Valuable time and all money was lost in this. To come out of this situation, she planned to produce a film launching Ajit. As the luck would have it, the film started in 1953, but took 2 years to complete. The rights were sold to a distribution company. They released the film first in Punjab, where it flopped miserably. Then it was not released anywhere at all and went into the cans forever. This was a great shock to Chitnis family.

The film had 8 songs. 2 songs are already discussed here. This is the 3rd song, sung by Talat Mehmood. Written by Raj Baldev Raj, it was composed by the ‘Gentleman Maestro’ – Snehal Bhatkar.

White full shirt, ironed white Pyjama, spectacles with big powerful lenses and the trademark white Gandhi Topi. He could easily be mistaken for a ‘Pandharpur Warkari‘ (a regular pilgrim to Pandharpur) or a member of a ‘Bhajani Mandali’ or simply a middle class ‘Marathi Manoos’. Such was the appearance of one of Hindi filmdom’s talented yet not so famous, music maestro VASUDEV GANGARAM BHATKAR or Snehal Bhatkar as we all love to know him.

In Hindi film music field, there were some talented composers like Ghulam Mohd, Mohd Shafi, Iqbal Qureshi, Daan Singh, C Arjun, Ramlal, Sardar Malik, Ajit Merchant, Jamaal Sen, Dattaram, Ganesh, Snehal Bhatkar etc., who could never reach the peaks of their careers. They really deserved this, but luck did not favour them. Big Banners never approached them and the losers were the lovers of music in India. They did not know, perhaps, how to sell their art. May be, they never wanted to enslave the music to gain name and fame, instead they preferred to settle for service to the music!

Bhatkar was one such composer. ‘Simple living and high thinking’ – never worked in this mayanagari, but he had no regrets. Till the end he was contented with whatever God gave him, whatever name and success he achieved. He was born into a family and grew in such atmosphere which was surrounded by traditional devotional music all around. In the lower middle class, the people had their entertainments in singing bhajans and doing keertans in temples en masse.

He was born on 17-7-1919. Vasudev G. Bhatkar knew at least 100 Bhajans by heart by the time he was in his 10th class. He was invited to sing in Ganesh Melas and other celebrations and soon became a well known name in the locality. Because of his singing and skills in playing harmonium and other instruments, he got a job in HMV in Bombay. Here he used to give accompaniment on harmonium to renowned classical singers. At the same time, taking cognizance of his singing skills, many Marathi bhavgeets and bhajans were recorded by HMV in those days. Some of them are popular in Maharashtra even today.

All the while, Bhatkar was looking for opportunity to compose in films. Sudhir Phadke, who too served in HMV and recorded some songs from 1943 to 1945, joined hands with Bhatkar and made a pair – Vasudev-Sudhir. They got a film of Baburao Painter ‘Rukmini Swayamvar’ in 1946 for music direction. The problem was due to his service in HMV, he could not openly work outside, hence he only gave his name as Vasudev. After this film the pair separated and Phadke went to give music to films like ‘Gokul’, ‘Aagey Badho’ etc. Due to financial constraints Bhatkar was unable to leave the job also.

In 1941, Bhatkar had come to know Kidar Sharma while recording songs for his film ‘Chitralekha’, which he was making for Ranjit Studios. Sharma had just come from Calcutta, to establish himself in Bombay. He had a knack of identifying talents. He gave chance to Bhatkar first to sing some songs with Leela Sawant in his film ‘Kaliyan’ (1944). After ‘Rukmini Swayamvar’, Kidar Sharma gave him his first break as independent composer in his ‘Neel Kamal’ in 1947. For this film, Bhatkar used the name  B Vasudev. Kidar Sharma had launched Raj Kapoor and Madhubala in adult roles as the lead pari in this film. It also launched Bhatkar, albeit in a pseudo-name. In the subsequent years Bhatkar used different names for different films-

  • ‘Suhaag Raat’ (1948) – as Snehal
  • ‘Sant Tukaram’ (1948) – as VG Bhatkar (he sang 6 songs also)
  • ‘Thes’ (1949) – as Snehal
  • ‘Sati Ahilya’ (1949) – as VG Bhatkar
  • ‘Pagle’ (1950) – as VG Bhatkar

After completing ‘Thes’ and ‘Sati Ahilya’, Bhatkar resigned from HMV.

He and Kidar Sharma were very good friends. Kidar gave him ‘Neki Aur Badi’ in 1949. He started the work. Meanwhile, Kidar Sharma met Roshan Nagrath in some musical event. Sharma was terribly impressed with Roshan and wanted to give him a break in his film. At that point of time, Kidar had just started work on ‘Neki Aur Badi’. He had a heart to heart talk with Bhatkar and Bhatkar gladly left the film for Roshan. Thus Roshan got his break with this film. Roshan never forgot Bhatkar’s magnanimity in his life and always respected Bhatkar.

In return Kidar Sharma gave ‘Hamari Beti’ (1950) to Bhatkar.  As he was a free bird now, Bhatkar started using the name Snehal Bhatkar from this film onward. Snehal was the short form of Snehalata, his daughter. Snehal Bhatkar did many Marathi films and recorded many bhajans in Marathi, which are ever popular. He did 27 films in Hindi and 12 films in Marathi. Out of 27 Hindi films, 9 were made by Kidar Sharma.

The song which made Mubarak Begum and Bhatkar famous in India was “Kabhi Tanhayion Mein, Hamari Yaad Aayegi” from the film ‘Hamari Yaad Aayegi’ (1961). (This film was was originally named ‘Jawaan Muhabbat’). Actually this song was to be done by Lata Mangeshkar. Lata had already recorded two songs for this film. Due to her extremely busy schedule she was unable to do this song, so she suggested the name of Asha Bhosle. However, already upset over Lata’s refusal, Kidar Sharma opted for Mubarak Begum and the rest is history-as they say. She made a gold of this song with her special voice.

After 1960, the musical scene in India was undergoing drastic changes and there was no space for composers like Bhatkar, who used minimum orchestra and dwelt upon melody. His films came after long intervals. Even Kidar Sharma left him after ‘Fariyad’ (1964) (only to return in ‘Pehla Kadam’ in 1980). Finally Bhatkar did his last film ‘Sehme Huye Sitaare’ in 1994, which featured his son Ramesh Bhatkar-who was already a popular hero in Marathi film, stage and TV. This obscure film did nothing good to Bhatkar.

After retirement Bhatkar devoted his time for children’s welfare and his original love – bhajan mandali singing.

Snehal or Vasudev Gangaram Bhatkar, together with cousin Devji Bhatkar and Panchambuwa Pandurang Shivalkar, was the founder member of ‘Vishwambhar Prasadik Bhajan Mandal’ in Dadar. It is still in operation after 50 years, with new set of singers. Bhatkar was very kind hearted. Every year, during Ganapati festival he used to visit his ancestral village ‘Bhate’ in Ratnagiri district and participate in singing bhajans.

Lata, Talat and Mukesh were his favourite singers. Talat, though has not sung many songs for him, his song “Zindagi Kis Mod Pe Laayee Hamein” from ‘Diwali Ki Raat’ (1956) was very popular. When rehearsals for this song were being done, Bhatkar had used only tabla and sitar for the practice session. The producer who chanced upon this rehearsal was so much impressed with this that he insisted recording the song only with minimum instruments. So, this song has only tabla, Sitar and another instrument for accompaniment.

Though there were many melodious songs composed by Bhatkar like, Khusro’s “Lakhi Baabul More Kaahe Ko Deeni Bides” sung soulfully by Mukesh in ‘Suhag Raat’ (1948); “Ro’oge Pachhtaoge” by Mukesh and Rajkumari in ‘Thes’ (1949); Lata’s “Chanda Tumko Laaj Na Ayee” from ‘Bhola Shankar’ (1951); Suman Kalyanpur’s “Haal e Dil Un Ko Sunaana Tha” from ‘Fariyaad’ (1964), except Kidar sharma no other big banner producer opted for Snehal Bhatkar. May be, his compositions were not so simple for common man to hum or sing, although they were quality songs.

Inspite of several melodious songs Bhatkar was never counted among the 1st line composers. Kidar Sharma also returned to him in 1980, but by that time Snehal Bhatkar was already on a descending track.

Snehal Bhatkar, a talented but not much applauded music director died peacefully on 29-5-2007 at his Dadar home.

Here is the song by Talat Mehmood from film Aaj ki baat-1955.

Blog Day : 3977 Post No. : 15064

Today (8 june 2019) is the birthday of Dimple Khanna nee Kapadia (Dob 8 june 1957). She was 16 years old when her debut movie “Bobby”(1973) took Hindi movie world by storm. This dubut movie was goin to be her first and only movie for next decade. After “Bobby”(1973) came the surprise announcement of her marriage to the reigning superstar Rajesh Khanna in 1973. Rajesh Khanna at that time was 31, viz twice in age to her.

Two daughters, viz Twinkle and Rinke were born to her. She separated from Rajesh Khanna in 1982 and resumed her acting career in 1984.

In her second innings as an actress, she got “mature” roles, though she was only in her early 30s at that time.

One of her well acclaimed films of that era was “Aitbaar”(1985). This suspense movie was produced by Romesh Sharma and directed by Mukul Anand. The movie had Dimple Kapadia,Raj Babbar, Suresh Oberoi, Danny Denzongpa, Leena Das, Huma Khan, Sharat Saxena, Anupam Kher, Ghanshyam Roherra, Pradeep Singh, Shivraj, Pankaj Kapur etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Today, on the occasion of the birthday of Dimple Kapadia, here is this song from “Aitbaar”(1985). This song is sung by Bhupinder Singh and Asha Bhonsle. Hasan Kamaal is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised as a piano cum get together song. Suresh Oberoi is seated at the piano, whereas the song is lip synced by him and Dimple Kapadia, as Raj Babbar dances with Dimple.

The lyrics of this song were sent in by Prakashchandra ji.

Blog Day : 3972 Post No. : 15058

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 34
——————————————————————————————

Ten years back, 3rd June, 2009, five songs and five films. The films are,

Shart 1954
Return of Mr Superman 1960
Ganga Jamuna 1961
Khoj 1971
Ek Baar Muskura Do 1972

The film ‘Shart’ from 1954 made its debut on the blog with the iconic “Naa Ye Chaand Hogaa Na Taare Rahenge”. In terms of completion, the films ‘Shart’ and ‘Ganga Jamuna’ have been yippeee’d already. The remaining songs of the rest of the three films are waiting in the wings.

Coming of 1960s also saw the waning of the career of music director Anil Biswas. Active in the industry since 1935, Anil Biswas has made a very significant and a lasting contribution to the music of Hindi cinema. A trendsetter in many ways, Anil Da has also been responsible to introduce and groom some of the finest singing voices in the industry.

After two and half decades, in the beginning of 1960s, his body of work was reduced to just a trickle. In 1961, he directs the music for ‘Lucky Number’; in 1962, it is ‘Sautela Bhai’; and after many delays, ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ finally got released in 1965.  And it turns out to be his last film in the industry. He had actually moved to Delhi already, during this time frame (March of 1963) and was working at the All India Radio as the director of the National Orchestra and Chief Producer of the program ‘Sugam Sangeet’.

Today, we revisit one of his lesser known films – ‘Return of Mr Superman’ from 1960. The song is a mujra performance, presented on screen by Heera Sawant. I hope I am correctly identifying the main dancer in this clip. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm or correct me. There are other actors in the audience that can be identified. We can clearly make out David and Rajan Haksar. There is another gentleman with ruffled hair and a large round eyes. I request the readers and friends to please help put a name to this face. Also, there is a trio of supporting singers on screen, who lip sync the chorus lines. Again, the request is to help identify these ladies.
[Ed Note: Prakash ji has identified the “. . .gentleman with ruffled hair and a large round eyes.” as Jagdish Kanwal. Thanks Prakash ji.]

The film is produced and directed by Manmohan Sabir, for his home banner – Manmohan Pictures, Bombay. The film has seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, written by four songwriters – Anand Bakshi, Kaif Irfani, Manmohan Sabir, and PL Santoshi. This song is written by Manmohan Sabir. The music, of course, is by Anil Biswas.

The cast of the film is listed as Jairaj, Sheela Ramani, Helen, David, Naazi, Majnu, Shammi, Ram Mohan, Rajan Haksar, Jagdish Kanwal, Heera Sawant, Nazeer Kashmiri, Mohinder, Saleem Raza, Robert, Gulab, Ramesh, Arvind, Harun, Master Naveen, Krishna, and Funny Walker.

There is one interesting discussion that we have had earlier on this blog, relating to one song purportedly from this film. The song is “Stella O Stella O Stella”. The curiosity about this song is that it has also appeared earlier in the film ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ from 1959. This earlier film also has music directed by Anil Biswas. On our blog, it so happens that this song, as it appears in ‘Return of Mr Superman’ is already posted; and the same song as it appears in ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ has not yet been posted.

I would like to bring to the notice of interested readers, the fact that this song does NOT appear in the list of songs given in Geet Kosh for the film ‘Return of Mr Superman’. The original song, as appearing in ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’, written by Sahir Sb, is the correct attribution of this song. The appearance in the later film ‘Return of Mr Superman’ is simply a repeat use, probably inserted at a short notice to fill a certain scenario. The song certainly does not belong to this later film.

Coming back to the song for today – as one listens carefully, one realizes that this is actually a ghazal that has been presented as a mujra. An interesting variation. I am sure we will find more such instances, if we start looking carefully. Earlier, we have identified a couple of ghazals that has been presented as qawwaalis (and I am sure there are more of such instances also). So now we have another variation – I am sure we will find more cases of a ghazal presented as a mujra. As one listens to the wordings, it is really a very endearing expression –

dil to tujh ko de diya, ab jaan bhi de denge hum
jaan lene se na ab, ae jaan e mann ghabraaiye

So, remembering Anil Biswas – his rememberance day was 31st May, just three days ago. Getting on to another 10 year connect. And getting to listen to this wonderful mujra. . .

Editor note-With this song, Meena Kapoor completes 100th song as a singer in the blog.

“Neelofar”(1957) was produced and directed by P N Arora for All India Pictures , Bombay. This costume drama movie had Chitra, Suresh, Nishi, Sundar, Shyam Kumar, Helen, Vimla, Amar, Vazeer Mohammad Khan etc in it.

The movie had five songs which were composed by two different music directors and two different lyricists. All five songs were female solos sung by three singers.

Three songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Neelofar”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Basant Prakash.

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

Lyrics

naazuk bahaar hoon
dil ka karaar hoon
duniya hai mujhpar nisaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar
naazuk bahaar hoon
dil ka karaar hoon
duniya hai mujhpar nisaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar

zulfen ghataayen aankhen paimaana
ye aankhen paimaana
meri adaa par mausam deewaana
ye mausam deewaana
zulfen ghataayen aankhen paimaana
meri adaa par mausam deewaana
saaj o singaar hoon
saaqi ka pyaar hoon
duniya hai mujhpar nisaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar

jaadoogaron ki jaadoogari hoon
main jaadoogari hoon
jannat se aayi neelam pari hoon
main neelam pari hoon
jaadoogaron ki jaadoogari hoon
jannat se aayi neelam pari hoon
chalti kataar hoon
teer o talwaar hoon
duniya hai mujhpar nisaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar

behki nazar se dil ka payaam lo
lo dil ka payaam lo
aankhen milaa kar mera salaam lo
lo mera salaam lo
behki nazar se dil ka payaam lo
aankhen milaa kar mera salaam lo
dil ka khumaar hoon
husn mazedaar hoon
duniya hai mujhpar nisaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar
haay main to laayi hoon aankhon mein pyaar
