Today 16th August 2022 is the sixty-eighth birthday of yesteryears’ singer Hemlata. She was born on 16th August, 1954.

I had earlier presented a detailed write-up about Hemlata and her songs those I cherished and the songs those have been permanently embedded in my memory since childhood and in the later growing years of my life journey thereafter. Readers can read this post. I am not going to repeat what I had said in my earlier post.

Today on the occasion of birth anniversary of Hemlata I am presenting a song sung by her from a lesser-known or may be rather an obscure movie ‘Jhoom Uthha Aakaash’ (1973).

‘Jhoom Uthaa Aakaash’ was directed by YN Kapoor for Bahaar-Milan Productions.

It had Sujit Kumar, Lakshmi Chhaaya, Anita, Rajdeep, Bharat Bhushan, Tiwari, Abhi Bhattacharya, Randhir, Mohan Choti, Jhankana Desai, Nana Palsikar, Bramhachari, Rajraani, Kalpana Diwan, Uma Khosla, Geeta Kapoor, Soni, Koki, SM Akhtar, Master Deepak, Master Dinkar, Ravi Bhatnagar, Ambar Kumar, Yogesh Kapoor, and others.

Though this movie seems to be an obscure movie of its time, its’ songs have been made available on internet by enthusiastic music lovers, and I am grateful to all of them.

This movie had seven songs written by Siraj Aghazi (five songs) and Atish Jalali (two songs).
Music for this movie was composed by Kanti Kiran.

Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor, Mukesh, Hemlata, and Krishna Kalle had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Hemlata’s voice featured in ‘six’ out of the ‘seven’ songs of this movie. The list of these songs is as given below.

SNo. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 Tera mera saath jaise din aur raat Atish Jalali Mahendra Kapoor, Hemlata
02 Sainyya anaadi na jaane pyaar ko Siraj Aghazi Manna Dey, Hemlata
03 Ho o nadiyaa kinaare nain hamaare Siraj Aghazi Mukesh, Hemlata 22.07.2020
04 Dekh lo bhagwaan teri meharbaani dekh lo …Hanste huye naina neer bahaaye kyun Siraj Aghazi Hemlata
05 Saawan aayo re bin mausam aayo Siraj Aghazi Mahendra Kapoor, Hemlata 22.07.2022
06 Zulmi najariyaa Atish Jalali Hemlata, Krishna Kalle

Let us now listen to today’s song. It is sung by Hemlata. Siraj Aghazi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kanti Kiran.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be presented on the blog.

Wishing Hemlata a very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Over to the song now …


Song-Hanste huye naina neer bahaayen (Jhoom Uthha Aakaash)(1973) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Shiraz Aghaazi, MD-Kanti Kiran

Lyrics

hanste huye naina aa aa aa
hanste huye naina neer bahaayen
hanste huye naina neer bahaayen
toota huaa dil gaaye kyun
iss duniya mein hum aaye kyun
iss duniya mein hum aaye kyun
hanste huye naina

milne na paaye juda ho gaye hum
haaye ye kya ho gaya aa aa
milne na paaye juda ho gaye hum
haaye ye kya ho gaya
kaisa hai tu u u u
kaisa hai tu kaisi duniya hai teri
kaisa hai tu kaisi duniya hai teri
koi kisi ko kyun tadpaaye tu
hanste huye naina

tere bhi seene mein hota agar dil
dil ki jalan ko samajhta aa
tere bhi seene mein hota agar dil
dil ki jalan ko samajhta
bichhde dilon ko milaa de nahin to
bichhde dilon ko milaa de nahin to
maalik jahaan ka kyun kehlaaye tu
hanste huye naina neer bahaayen
hanste huye naina neer bahaayen
toota huaa dil gaaye kyun
iss duniya mein hum aaye kyun
iss duniya mein hum aaye kyun
hanste huye naina

Blog Day :

5133 Post No. : 17089

Today’s song is from a Costume drama-Jalti Nishani-1957.

There was another film Jalti Nishani made in 1932, by Prabhat Film Company of Poona. It was a bilingual film, made in Hindi and Marathi and the Marathi version was titled ” Agni kankan” ( अग्नी कंकण ). That was the usual story of an honest king, a bad Vazir, a runaway queen with her son and the revenge taken after 20 years. The 1957 film with the same title had almost a similar story with some variations. This film was made by Emsheth productions, produced aptly by a rich person called A.G.Dhanik. It was directed by Tara Harish and the melodious music was provided by the grand old man of Hindi film music – Anil Biswas.

The image of Anil Biswas carved in the minds of Music lovers is that of a smiling person who was respected by one and all in the industry. But few people know that behind that smiling face were many unpleasant events in his life. A failed marriage, loss of all earnings while settling the separation, loss of a dear friend-Mehboob, loss of an young son in Indian Air Force, a failed musician son, a pathetic end of his musical career field in Bombay and a life spent away from Bombay made Anil Biswas a Philosophical person at the end of his life.

I have full respect and liking for him as a person and also as a music melody creator in Hindi films. Today, in this post, we will take a short look at his life and a retelling of some interesting happenings of his life. In his Bio,you will find a less known story of his ambitious but unfortunate son who died untimely. I am not going into the details of his songs and music nor am I going to delve into the details of his interesting early life in Bengal, before coming to the Bombay film world scene. So, here we go….

Anil Biswas,the Bhishma Pitamaha of HFM,was a respected person in the industry.He started from the mid 30s and for the next 25 years or so,he created many everlasting gems in film songs. In Bombay,the Playback was first started by him in the film Mahageet-1937. By the mid 50s his magic started waning and by 1960,he was almost gone from the industry. Initially he did 10-11 films with Sagar,then with Mehboob for National studios and then in Bombay talkies- where his name became immortal with the film Kismet-1943.

He married Ashalata in 1936. Along with her he started variety pictures and they produced films like Laadli-49,Laajawab-50;Badi Bahu-51,Hamdard-53 and Bajuband-54. ( a less known fact is-Anil da had made a Guest appearance in the film Hamdard-53 as a barber.) He also acted in the film Mehman-53 (produced by Ashalata),as a Pujari and a song was shot on him.In both cases he did not get any payments. As a Producer he lost heavily, because Ashalata usurped all the money. Frustrated, he gave up everything and separated from her in 1954.

To sustain life,he bought a Truck and did a business of transportation. In addition he also took the contract for a canteen in Mehboob Studios. He failed in both ventures. By now,his relations with Ashalata were soured and sweet links were established with singer Meena Kapoor-25 years younger to him, since 1948 itself.According to some reports, they got married with each other on 19-3-1957. The death of Brother in law and close friend Pannalal Ghosh in 1960 and younger brother Sunil in 1961 as well as his eldest son- Pradeep,broke his heart. He left Bombay and joined A.I.R. at Delhi on 1-3-1963,where he worked upto 27-6-1975. Later he was a consultant for Nehru University for a few years.

Like many filmi couples,Anil da’s married life was also a failure. In Bombay,he used to stay in a huge bungalow,called ” Asha-Pradeep “, on Vincent Road. From Ashalata,he got 3 sons-Pradeep,Amit and Utpal and 1 daughter-Shikha. His son Utpal formed a pair as Amar-Utpal and gave music to few films. The other son Amit established the First Digital Recording Studio in Bombay. Daughter Shikha too got married and settled.

However,hardly anything is known about his eldest son Pradeep,anywhere. Here is some information,hitherto not known much,brought specially for our readers.
Pradeep was a very bright student and always topped in school and college. He passed his entrance exam and the interview,with flying colours for entry to NDA college at Poona,to join armed forces. He excelled even in NDA training.Not only was he very popular there but sang well too. He participated in the music Festival of Khadakwasla NDA and sang 3 songs,winning all prizes. He was also a NDA Topper.

Shri Gopinath Talwalkar,an A.I.R. Programmer at Delhi,used to interview the Toppers of NDA every year. That year Pradeep was the Topper, so he was interviewed. Though the interview was in Hindi, after the recording,Pradeep asked Talwalkar,in pure Marathi,whether his interview had been good. Talwalkar was shocked. Pradeep then explained that he was Anil Biswas’s son and he had learnt Marathi from his actress mother Ashalata. Pradeep knew Hindi,Marathi,English and Gujarati languages.

After completing his NDA training,he was posted as Flight cadet at Jodhpur. He was further promoted and became Pilot Officer in 1957. During one Training flight some altitude problems occurred and his plane crashed at Begumpet Airport, Hyderabad, killing Pradeep instantly. This happened in 1961.

This was also the time of crisis for Anil da. He was struggling to survive. Films were not coming to him. Since he married Meena Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar-a fast close friend of Ashalata , had gone against him and Meena’s singing career was suppressed. He had already lost Pannalal Ghosh and Sunil-his brother and now Pradeep’s death devastated him and he was literally forced to seek employment with Delhi A.I.R., when the opportunity came. After retirement, till his death on 31-5-2003, he spent his life in total anonymity and recluse. So sad for a composer, who was once a fountain of enthusiasm and who was considered Mentor by leading contemporary composers like C.Ramchandra.

Here is an anecdote about C.Ramchandra and Anil Biswas…

On the day of recording the first ever Hindi film song (a chorus song) of C.Ramchandra, (in 1942) all arrangements were done. Chorus singers were ready, musicians were ready and technicians were ready. Suddenly, a set of visitors arrived at the studio. The visitors were all top composers of the day like Anil Biswas, K.Datta, Naval Chatterjee and some others.They all had heard about C Ramchandra, his tunes and his work. They wanted to see how he operated. C Ramchandra had tremendous respect for Anil Biswas. He knew that the contributions of Anil Biswas to Hindi Film Music was praiseworthy. Anil Biswas was a master of harmonization technique in western and Indian music instruments.

C Ramchandra described this event thus-

” It was my great fortune that a senior composer whom I considered as my Guru was present at my first recording. To my greatest surprise all the visitors joined the Chorus group for singing. I just wanted to check if the final take can be taken. I said one ..two..three and the song and music started, but I felt something was wrong. One singer sounded different. I stopped and ran outside to the singers. To my shock it was Anilda who put a Teevr Nishad which was not in my composition. He smilingly asked, is it Ok ? I said respectfully, No Dada, this is not right. He very magnanimously and without further questions agreed and they all sang on my tune only !. ”

Here is one more anecdote about Anil Biswas and Dilip kumar…

A few interesting lines about the duet –‘Aa mohabbat ki basti basayeinge hum’. One afternoon Anil Da at his residence was in the company of celebrated actors –Dilip Kumar and Ashok Kumar. He played on his harmonium and hummed the serious tune of his forthcoming melody -‘Aa mohabbat ki basti basayeinge hum’. As to who will be the female singer, there was absolutely no doubt about Lata; but who will give the male voice? “Dada it should be Talat”-said Ashok Kumar. Whereas Dilip Kumar suggested –“Anil Da, in any case looking at the serious lyrical notes, male singer should be your favorite Mukesh.” Anil Da had something else in his mind. “How if Kishore sings with Lata”- said the maestro. “Kishore!’ –Dilip was taken aback; “if Kishore will sing such a serious song, then ‘Aapka joota aur mera sar (if Kishore will sing such a serious song, my head is ready for your shoe-beating)’” –added Dilip Kumar. “Mein joota le kar aataa hoon, sar tayyar rakho (Be ready with your head, I am bringing my shoe).”

Kishore Kumar was called, who at the first instance, bluntly refused to sing the said duet with Lata. But, the maestro’s conviction prevailed and eventually a heart-throbbing duet was created!

Film Girls school-49 has a very interesting History. As we know the film had 9 songs and there were 2 MDs-Anil Biswas and C Ramchandra (4 and 5 songs each).

This film was produced by Kavi Pradeep under the banner of Lokmanya Productions,Bombay. This was a company floated by him and Amiya Chakrawarty-director of this film. To understand the complexities of Girls school, we must go back a little. In 1942, Anil Biswas was invited by Ranjit @ 1500 pm and by Bombay Talkies @ 2500 pm. As National studio was winding up, AB wanted to make a change anyway, but due to the contract of national he could not join Bombay Talkies openly. He ,however , gave music to film Basant-42 and the name of his brother in Law, Pannalal Ghosh was used as its MD.

Finally when AB joined Bombay Talkies, there were already 2 groups there. One was led by Devika Rani and Amiya Chakraborty and the other was led by S. Mukherjee along with Ashok kumar, Gyan Mukherjee, Pradeep etc- a total of 15 artistes. AB was invited by Devika Rani and that too at 2500 pm,when Pradeep was getting 1500 pm. This irritated Pradeep to no end and he started troubling and finding faults with Anil Biswas. However Anil Biswas gave excellent music to film Kismet and then everyone was happy as the film celebrated jubilees everywhere.

With this background,Anil Biswas joined Girls school as a MD, mainly due to Amiya who knew his calibre. Kavi Pradeep being a producer and a Lyricist started interfering with Anil Bswas’s work and criticising him at every opportunity. AB was fed up. He had already recorded 3 songs and a solo by Lata , ” tum hi kaho,mera man udas kyun na rahe” was to be recorded. Anil Biswas had taken C Ramchandra as his assistant for this film. Though CR was already a popular and well known composer himself, still due to sheer respect for Anil Biswas, he had accepted to be his assistant here. When the tune for Lata’s solo was made, Pradeep passed caustic remarks about it being not so good. There was an altercation between Anil Biswas and Pradeep and Biswas quit then and there and went away.

Automatically, C Ramchandra had to take over as MD for the balance songs. Pradeep was very happy. Next day recording of Lata’s solo song took place under the supervision of C Ramchandra, as planned. Later when Lata came to know that Anil Biswas had left and C Ramchandra had replaced him,she was very angry and said that she would not have recorded the song had she known about AB’s exit. She objected to CR’s taking over and complained to the Artistes association too. (Remember, at that time Lata and CR’s relations had not formed yet, Lata was still with Husnlal.)

Later on in 1954, when O P Nayyar replaced Roshan for Mehbooba-54, Lata took up the issue with the MDs’ association. Anil Biswas was the chairman that time and OPN was boycotted. That time Lata quoted the film Girls school incident to prove that she was ” highly Principled” !

Anyway, this was how C Ramchandra became the next MD of Girls school-49,with 4 duets of Shamshad and 1 solo for Lalita Deulkar. All the 4 duets of this pair are very interesting. However, with all this jhamelas, film Girls school-49 was a total Flop. Pradeep lost heavily and closed the production company forthwith, after just one film.

One peculiar thing with Anil Biswas was that he liked to compose Chorus songs. That is why in almost every film you will find at least one chorus song. Right from his first film to his last film, I checked the song list. Even in his today’s film there are 2 chorus songs. Today’s song also has a chorus in it. It is a good song. Let us enjoy it.

Blog Day :

5104 Post No. : 17043

———————————–
This Week, That Year – 10
———————————–
03Jul – 09Jul, 2012

OK so, another week. Just made it in time this time. 🙂

This thing about the ten year recalls and reminiscences, it surely brings up some very interesting  experiences. And I believe, the one connected with this week, will be one of the most interesting. Before getting into the numbers game, let me share this first.

Ten years back, as I was checking out and reviewing the activities on the blog for the seven day period – 3rd July to 9th July, 2012, I came across this very interesting exchange in the comments section of the one of posts of that week. It happened on the 8th of July. That day, as many as 6 posts were published. And the blog achieved a major milestone. The sixth song that got posted on that day is “Ye Wohi Geet Hai Jisko Maine”, in the voice of Kishore Kumar. The film is ‘Maan Jaaiye’ from 1972. The song is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and the music is by Jaidev. With this post and song, the blog reached the 6200th milestone.

Writing on the occasion of completing 62 centuries, Atul ji had pointed out that the latest century (from 6101 to 6200) was achieved in 20 days. He also wrote that it was slower than the fastest that the blog had covered till then – which was sixteen days. But also that it was faster than the immediate preceding century (6001 to 6100) which had been accomplished in 27 days. The rest of the article with the post also makes a very interesting reading.

In the comments section, there is an exchange between Atul ji and myself, which is oh so pertinent for this 10 year recall of our own history. I reproduce the comments here verbatim, and I am sure you will see the immediate connection. I had written,

Oh wow,
another century already.

Atul ji,

Sometimes I do get caught unawares. 🙂

Congratulations – a wonder is unfolding, as we go on day by day, adding more to this wonderful collection. Mark my words, dear Atul ji and all other dear friends on this blog. Seven to ten years down the road, we will be viewing this as our own history, and will wonder . . . ‘Oh, did we really came up this path.’

Congratulations again, to ALL.

To my observation, Atul ji had responded as follows,

Thanks.

You are right. If we can continue for ten years at this rate, then the collection of songs here, alongwith the nuggets of valuable informations being gathered will become a priceless source of reference for music lovers.

In the context of where we were at that time, this exchange would have been regarded as wishful thinking. We were about 4 years into this journey as of that date. Our view into the future was more an apprehension rather than an educated expression of planning and resolve. Reading this exchange from 10 years ago, and in the context of where we are today with this journey, we can very aptly term this as visionary. Ha. Sure. Was it really so visionary at that juncture? Of course we did not know. It was an instinctive expression of what-if-then kind of a thought in our minds.

But then reading these words after ten years, it really gives such an exhilarating feeling of triumph and realization – yes, we did make it, and we did make it in great style, with continued strength and sustained consistency for all to see. And more than just a wonder – we HAVE a blog that surely is – “a priceless source of reference for music lovers“.

In the post Atul ji had specifically pointed out that although the pace on the blog may not be chugging along as fast as he would like to (at that time), but that he was very happy with the consistency of effort and the great feeling of continued success that was brought in by the fact that our onward progression continued to bring up milestone after milestone on the blog. Yes, ‘exhilarating’ surely is the right word.

The pace has surely slowed down significantly. But the spirit of continuity and forward progress has never faltered. In four years we had breached the 6200th mark. In the ten years since, we have added almost another eleven thousand posts, another eleven thousand songs, which just wishful thinking back then. As I have written earlier also, we have run out of epithets and qualifiers for this ongoing wonderful journey of music.

And it continues. . . 😀

I return to the numbers game and the review of the postings from that week. The following table contains the day by day information of the posts from that week.

As the table shows, a total of 40 songs were posted in that week, at a daily average of about 5.7 songs per day. Wow. What a powerhouse of energy it has been.

Another week of no repeats – meaning that 40 films got showcased that week. Of these, nine films had made their debut that week. And yes, during that week, one film was Yippeee’d. That is the 1959 film ‘Kavi Kaalidas’, which got Yippeee’d on 5th July of 2012. Since that week, during the past 10 years, another 21 of the 40 films that were represented, have been Yippeee’d.

About the decade preferences, here is the break up

1930s  –  (none)
1940s  –  6
1950s  –  16
1960s  –  10
1970s  –  6
1980s  –  2

As always, the distribution is obviously weighed down in the decades of 50s and 60s.

Of the 40 films from that week, 19 films still continue to have ‘Pending’ status. Of these 19 ‘Pending’ films, for 6 of them the Geet Kosh indicates that maybe all song were not released as gramophone records. We may not see a complete Yippeee status for these films

The song presented today is from the 1960 film ‘Duniya Jhukti Hai’. The songs of this film are from the pen of Rajendra Krishan and music is from the mind of Hemant Kumar. Just to remind readers – this is the film that contains the iconic popular song “Phoolon Se Dosti Hai Kaanton Se Yaari Hai”. This song was posted during the week under review – on 3rd July, 2012. Another very famous and popular song of this film is “Gumsum Sa Ye Jahaan, Ye Raat Ye Hawa”.

Our dear Arun ji has provided the following summary of this film,

DUNIYA JHUKTI HAI (1960) was a Wadia Movietone film, which was a surprise. Wadia Movietone was known only to make stunt or costume films of B grade. This was a social film trying to give a message that Evil work never pays.

Anyway, the producer/director was JBH Wadia himself and the music was by Hemant Kumar, ably assisted by Rizbert, his loyal companion of many movies. This Rizbert was from Goa and was an expert like other Goanese in film industry, in making notation based tunes.

One more interesting point about this film was that there were 3 Agha’s in this film. One was actor Agha Jan, the other was cinematographer Agha Hasham and the third was Agha Jani Kasmiri who wrote the story, screenplay and dialogues of the film.

Mohan is an honest to the core young man, in love with a girl. The girl ditches him by marrying some rich man. Mohan is frustrated and he becomes a gunda, joins a gang of a Boss whom no one has seen. He also changes his name to Bankelal. (Sunil Dutt).

One day this Banke saves a child Munna (Daisy Irani) from drowning and they become close friends as Munna has no father. Munna’s mother Laxmi (Shyama) does not approve this and warns Munna to keep away from Banke, as he is a gunda.

Munna falls ill and Banke visits him, promising him to reform and become a good man. He goes and surrenders to the police, but police want him to help them capture the Boss. The Boss is already looking for Banke as he does not want to lose him. He kidnaps Munna to blackmail Banke to return to his fold. There is a fight and when Banke is about to kill the Boss (BM Vyas), Laxmi reveals that Boss is Munna’s father. Boss runs away but is killed by the police.

Banke marries Laxmi and they live happily with Munna.

The song is a mujra song, which is performed on screen by Kumkum. The quality of the video is not great, and it is difficult to identify the other performers present in the scene. Dear Prakash ji has helped to identify the dancer Kumkum and two other performers present in this clip – Wasti and Kesar.

A wonderfully crafted song that has been performed equally well by Kumkum. A great reminder, and a great recall – where we were ten years ago, and what were our hopes and aspirations.

The lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji. Listen to this less heard, but a really beautiful melody.

Great memories.

Blog Day :

5100 Post No. : 17033

Today’s song is from an obscure film – ‘Vishwamitra’ (1952).I am sure that 99.9% readers must not have even heard of this film ever. Then why did I select a song from this film to discuss? There is a strong reason for it. When I first saw this film’s name in HFGK a few days ago, I noticed the name of the director and the music director and honestly, I was thrilled ! The director was Kala Maharshi Baburao Painter, one of the pioneers of Indian films- both silent as well as talkie. He was also the mentor of many film luminaries who shone later in their lives. All of them had learnt the ABCD of film making at the feet of Baburao Painter. Great directors like V Shantaram and Master Vinayak were the prominent learners under him.Any industry, to develop into a profitable one, requires hard work by the pioneers. This applies totally to the Hindi Film Industry in India. The original initiators of the film industry were not any rich people, but the industry took the seeds from ordinary, middle class people.They had no riches, but their zeal, dedication, ambition and desire to achieve goals overtook their poverty and they toiled and moiled to raise the required finance for their projects. We all know about  the great Dadasaheb Phalke, who staked everything he owned to achieve his goals and became a name to remember forever. In this endeavor, he was not alone. There was one more person from Kolhapur, who took Phalke’s dream much ahead from silent to talkie films. His name is taken today with awe and respect by film historians. He was Baburao Painter.

Kala Maharshi Baburao Painter (real name Baburao Krishnarao Mestri) was born on 3rd June 1890 at Kolhapur. The success of Dadasaheb Phalke in making films in India inspired Baburao and his cousin brother Anandrao immensely. They too wanted to make films, but it was not possible in Kolhapur. Phalke had gone to England to learn film making and had brought machinery from England. This was beyond the reach of these poor young men.

Anandrao found that a second hand projector was for sale in Null Bazar in Bombay. Crazily, he decided to change the projector into a film camera, by making some structural changes. They sold the family’s gold ornaments and bought the projector. To start with and to get further finance they used it to show films in theaters. They even showed some Hollywood films here. After several attempts, Anandrao was successful in converting the projector into a film camera. Baburao was also with him in this. Unfortunately, Anandrao died suddenly giving a setback to the project.

Baburao now needed finance to go ahead. Luckily a famous classical singer of those days, Tanibai Kagalkar – wife of Bapusaheb Kagalkar and the sister of Vinayakrao Ghorpade (who was the father of child actress and singer Vasanti), invested Rs. 15,000 – an astronomical figure for those times. Baburao established Maharashtra Film Company in Kolhapur and started preparations for making his film ‘Sairandhri’, released in 1919. The cast of this film included 2 women, Gulab Bai aka Kamla Devi and Anusuya Bai aka Susheela Devi. These women were promptly thrown out of their homes and society. They remained with the company and even cooked and washed clothes of artistes, besides acting in the films other times. Gulab Bai aka Kamla Devi later posed for the symbol of Prabhat Film company- playing the tootari with bent body. She married Fattelal, one of the directors of Prabhat Films.

‘Sairandhri’ was a tremendous success. Enthused Baburao Painter made another 15 films. Lokmanya Tilak was so impressed with Baburao’s dedication, he awarded him the title of ‘Cinema Kesari’. Baburao Pendharkar was the General Manager of the company, mainly because he could speak fluent English with customers. Others were V Shantaram, Dhaiber, Damle and Fattelal as his assistants in different departments. Sarpotdar, NH Apte and Vashikar were the scriptwriters and Prof NS Phadke, the novelist, wrote film titles. In the 1920 second half, there was a big fire in the company and all films were burnt.

Baburao Painter started afresh in 1921. He made many mythological and historical films. Baburao was the first to make a social film, ‘Savkari Pash’ on the issue of exploitation of  poor farmers by money lenders in the villages. In 1928, a foreign trained film director was appointed from Bombay – Moti B Gidwani, on a fat salary. (He was later to direct the film ‘Khazanchi’ (1941) in Lahore). This caused unrest in the company and resulted in Shantaram, Dhaiber, Damle and Fattelal leaving the company. They established Prabhat Film Company. In 1930, Baburao also left the Maharashtra Film company. When talkie films started he made 7 talkie films, including 2 Hindi films – ‘Pratibha’ (1937) and ‘Matwala Shaayar Ramjoshi’ (1947) along with Shantaram. He then left films and concentrated on his painting and sculpture. In the year 1952, he was forced by his old friend BG Pawar to come to Bombay and direct his film ‘Vishwamitra’. However, most of the  shooting was done in Kolhapur itself. Baburao Painter died on 16-1-1954 at Kolhapur.

Baburao’s contribution to Indian film industry-

  1. He was the first to use colored screens and clothes for realistic effect.
  2. Indoor filming with artificial lighting.
  3. Fade out and fade in techniques
  4. Outdoor shootings; Debaki Bose, in his visit to the studio, was amazed to see Baburao’s working techniques.
  5. Making sketches of scenes and costumes before shooting.
  6. Advertising posters. Film booklets with film story and pictures.

All assistants of Baburao Painter became big people. He was simply a God sent gift to the Hindi film industry.

[Author’s Note: Thanks for the information culled from ‘The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema’ by Ashish Rajadhyaksha, ‘Marathi Cinema in Retrospect’ by Sanjit Narwekar and my own notes.]

Another surprising name was that of the Music Director- B Laxman aka Laxman Berlekar. When the talkie films started, it created tremendous curiosity among not only the audience but also those who loved acting, singing and composing music. Even the great names in these fields had a desire to act, to sing or to compose music for the films. Actors who were legends on the stage dramas like Master Nissar or Bal Gandharva, professional singers like Manik Varma, musicians like Pt Ravi Shankar, and poets like Kazi Nazrul Islam (now the national poet of Bangladesh) did their bits in few films. Most of these professionals contributed in just one or two films and then disappeared from the film line.

Some of the ‘one/two films’ music composers are Imam Baksh – ‘Mr and Mrs Bombay’ (1936), Shankar Rao Khatu – ‘Village Girl’ (1936), Master Ratnakant – ‘Rangbhoomi’ (1935), Pt Hansraj – ‘Mastana Mashooq’ (1936), Harish Bharadwaj – ‘Ahinsa Path’ (1949), Dattaram Gadekar – ‘Vikram Shashikala’ (1949), Chetumal – ‘Bombay’ (1949), Madhukar Golwalkar – ‘Main Abla Nahin Hoon’ (1950), Prafulla Chaudhari – ‘Swayamsidha’ (1949), Madhukar Acharya – ‘Kinaara’ (1949), Kazi Nazrul Islam – ‘Chauranghee’ (1942) etc.

B Laxman was also one such one film wonder in Hindi, though he had been a well known name in Marathi films and stage dramas. Berlekar was born in 1920 at Kolhapur. He loved music from his childhood. He first learnt playing harmonium and then studied in Gandharva Mahavidyalaya. Famous singer Wamanrao Padhye was his teacher.

In those days Ganesh Melas were popular in Maharashtra. Berlekar and Sudhir Phadke acted and sang in mela dramas. Both worked in Shrikrishna Sangeet Mela of Kolhapur. Laxman was very handsome and had a good personality. He acted as a child Prahlad in Hindi film ‘Bhakta Prahlad’ (1934) made by Saraswati Cinetone of Poona. Berlekar sang Hindi ghazals very well he gave music to 7 Marathi films and 1 Kannada film. ‘Vishwamitra’ was the only Hindi film he did. He used different pseudo-names like B Laxman, Dinkar Laxman and LB Sarang (saarang was his favourite Raag).

[Author’s Note: Thanks to ‘मराठी चित्रपट संगीतकार कोष’ for this information.]

Film ‘Vishwamitra’ was made by producer Baswant Pawar under the banner of his own Baswant Films, Bombay. It was directed by Baburao Painter and music was by B Laxman. All the 6 songs and the film story was written by Manohar Khanna (father of MD Usha Khanna). The cast was DK Sapru, Sheela Nayak, Vivek, Madhav Kale, Apte and many others. Today’s song is the second song of this film here.

I had mentioned in my earlier post of this movie that this movie seems to be an obscure movie of its time and the songs from it are either new to people like me or never heard earlier.
Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and only the audio of this song is available so far. And this Rafi song is also the only Rafi song in this movie.

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

Let us now listen to today’s song …


Song-Ab to bahaa le aankhon se aansoo (Jhoom Uthha Aakaash)(1973) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Siraj Aghaazi, MD-Kanti Kiran

Lyrics

Ab to bahaa le aankhon se aansoo
Bhagwaa aan
Are bhagwaan
Tujhe rona hi padega
Ab to bahaa le aankhon se aansoo

Khet hain pyaase
Dharti hai sookhi
Roothhi hain kismat
ujdi hai nagri
Sabr ka daaman chhoot gaya hai
Aas ka bandhan toot gaya hai
Ab bhi agar tu saathh na dega
O o o
Dil se tera vishwaas uthhega
Bhagwaan aa aa aan
Are bhagwaan
Tujhe rona hi padega
Ab to bahaa le aankhon se aansoo

Jaan ke sab anjaan bana hai
Kaahe ko phir bhagwaan bana hai
Nain tere chhalka ke rahoonga
Patthar ko pighlaa ke rahoonga
Aaj na meri baat sunega
Ho o o
Kaun tujhe bhagwaan kahega
Tujhe rona hi padega
Tujhe rona hi padega
Bhagwaan
Bhagwaan
Bhagwaan
Bhagwaan

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 49
————————————————————————————–

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai-1966’.

This movie is eligible for representation on the blog today as one of its’ songs was posted ten years back on 02.06.2012.

This day (2 June) that year (in 2012) saw as many as five posts on the blog as per details given below.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Sur saritey kalyaanmayi Prabhu Ki Maaya(1955) 5 of 9 songs posted
Bahut aasaan hai chilman se lagkar muskuraana Rangeen Raatein(1956) All songs covered
Bahut purdard hai ye sunanewaalon Birha Ki Raat(1950) All songs covered
Khudaara yoon dil naa todo Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai(1966) 4 of 7 songs posted
Ye pyaar thhaa ya kuchh aur thhaa Prem Rog(1982) 4 of 6 songs posted

Out of the five movies mentioned above all songs of two movies viz. ‘Rangeen Raatein-1956’ and ‘Birha Ki Raat-1950’ have been covered. That leaves with us three movies viz. ‘Prabhu Ki Maaya-1955’, ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai-1966’ and ‘Prem Rog-1982’ that still offers us songs that are yet to be covered.

I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai-1966’. I had not watched this movie and I don’t remember whether I have listened to the songs of this movie except one song ‘nange baazu nangi raanen husn ka ye meyar nahin’, a song that I became aware of when it was posted on the blog.

When our dear Prakash ji sent the lyrics for the remaining songs of this movie I decided to take them, and also become aware about this movie and its songs.

‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai-1966’ was directed by R.K. Nayyar for ‘R.K. Nayyar Films, Bombay’. It was a social movie.

This movie had Ashok Kumar, Joy Mukherjee, Sayra Bano, Motilal, Sayeeda Khan, Madan Kumar, Shyam Chatterjee, Mohsin Abdulla, Badri Prasad, Manmohan and others.

This movie had seven songs (including one multiple version song*) as detailed in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

Lyrics for all the songs of this movie are written by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Ravi.

The list of the songs of this movie is as given below.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Pehle aankh ladaayiye Mohd Rafi 07.05.2012
02 Khudaara yoon dil naa todo Mohd Rafi 02.06.2012
03 Dekho ye deewaana, roz ek kahaani ek fasaana sunaana chaahta hai Asha Bhonsle
04 Nange baazu nangi raanen husn ka ye meyaar nahin Mohd Rafi 27.10.2021
05 Khudaara yoon dil naa todo Asha Bhonsle 02.06.2012
06 Jeene ka agar andaaz aaye to kitni haseen hai zindagi Asha Bhonsle 08.03.2012
07 Koyi aankh milaa ke dekhe, koyi pyaar jataa ke dekhe Asha Bhonsle Being discussed today

*After going through the above list we have something to correct on the statistics of the blog. We need to correct the total number of songs posted to five instead of four, as we have already covered the multiple version song ‘khudaara yoon dil naa todo’.
That gives us only two songs from this movie to be covered on the blog. (It took me sometime to clear this confusion as Prakash ji had sent lyrics for three songs to be covered.
However, the song ‘muhabbat rang laayegi haseena maan jaayegi’ has also been covered and it is the same song which starts with the lines – ‘pehle aankh ladaayiye, phir aage badhh jaayiye’ (Prakash ji – kindly note please)).

That brings us to today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Sayeeda Khan is seen performing on this songs with many other female artists, including Saira Bano.

As mentioned above lyrics for today’s song are by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Ravi.

Let us enjoy today’s song now …

Song-Koi aankh milaa ke dekhe (Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai)(1966) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

koyi aankh milaa ke dekhe
koyi pyaar jataa ke dekhe
dilwaalon leke aayi hoon main
ankhiyon ke baan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan

pyaar mein jeenewaale laakhon
marnewaala koyi naa
pyaar mein jeenewaale laakhon
marnewaala koyi naa
ishq di khaatir jaan ka saudaa
karnewaala koyi naa
dilwaale to ek adaa pe hote hain qurbaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan

deewaana to pyaar karegaa
zulfon ki zanjeer se ae
deewaana to pyaar karegaa
zulfon ki zanjeer se
paa legaa wo manzil apni
ek nazar ke teer se
ishq mein jaan bachaanewaale
hote hain naadaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan

jeenewaala kya jaane jo
marne mein aaraam hai ae
jeenewaala kya jaane jo
marne mein aaraam hai
dopahar ki garmi se to
achchhi thhandi shaam hai
ghaayal ho ja ho jaayegi
har mushqil aasaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi aankh milaa ke dekhe
koyi pyaar jataa ke dekhe
dilwaalon leke aayi hoon main
ankhiyon ke baan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
