Forgotten Songs of Bappi Lahiri – Song # 2
————————————————————

For my second song of this series, I wanted to choose a song sung by Bappi Da himself. I was searching the movie and song databases, when I came across this haunting melody.

The years 1976 and 1977, amongst some others, are very special in my life. I had finished my school (SSC) and had entered the collage (Intermediate/11th & 12th) life. You can imagine a teen, who has just finished his, very strict, catholic convent school, entering the next phase in his life (collegian life, where there were no compulsions on wearing the uniforms, carrying a school bag and tiffin (lunch) or dabba, as it was called in my mother tongue (Marathi).

There were lots of other things which were not compulsory as well. I’ll leave it to your own imagination or experience. But the two most important things which I liked were, one – No Monitoring to check if the students attended the collage every day and two – there were 3 theatres/Cinema Halls next to my collage (a total of 9 theatres/cinemas with a radius of 2 – 3 kms.

Another unique thing was that my collage was a co-educational institution, whereas my school was a Boys Only convent. I was quite excited about this fact but came to understand soon enough that I was extremely shy when talking to any girl. Thus, movies were my only source of entertainment.

There were some very good movies released in those years which were block-busters like Kabhi Kabhie, Naagin, Adalat, Mehbooba, Kallicharan, Dharam Veer, AAA, etc. During those years, one young romantic pair was quite popular and that was Sachin & Sarikaa. This pair beczme a big hit in those days due to the stupendous success of Geet Gaata Chal (1975). Some of the other movies where they were paired in leading roles were Shyam Tere Kitne Naam, Raksha Bandhan, Zid, Madhu Malti, etc.

One more movie where they acted in romantic lead roles was Pratima Aur Payal released in 1977. My today’s song is a very haunting melody composed and sung by Bappi Lahiri for this movie. I have seen this movie but the memory is very vague about the story line. I only remember that it is told in a flash back about sculptor and a dancer. The story is told to Seema and Vikas – two lovers who bear striking resemblance to Manu, the sculptor and Kala, the dancer, who die a century earlier, in each other’s’ arms.

The movie directed by Sharan Aggarwal for producer B. K. Agarwal, under the banner Shivam Pictures, Bombay. The songs were penned by Rajkavi Inderjit Singh Tulsi, Shiv Kumar Saroj, Indeevar and Gauhar Kanpuri. The composer was Bappi Lahiri. The movie starred Sachin, Sarika, Om Shivpuri, Rita Bhaduri, etc.

I have been unable to locate the video of either the movie or the song being uploaded. Only audio in uploaded.

Today’s song “Soona Hai Jeevan Mera” is composed and sung by Bappi Lahiri and penned by Shiv Kumar Saroj.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 113 # Debutant movie – Neelima-1975
——————————————

‘Neelima-1975’ is making its debut on the blog today. Music for this movie is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. So, we are adding one more Shankar Jaikishan movie on the blog today.

I do not know from where I got it into my mind, but whenever I went through HFGK Vol-V and came across this movie name ‘Neelima-1975’ I had an impression that this movie must have already been covered on the blog. But now it is clear that this movie is yet to be launched on the blog.

‘Neelimaa-1975’ was directed by Pushpa Raj for ‘A.A.N. Productions, Bombay’. It had Zaheeda, Vinod Mehra, Sonia Sahni, Ranjeet, Anjali Kadam, Shahzaad, Nazeer Kashmiri, Rafia Sultana, Sahay, Aarif, Sami, Asgar, Qaiser and others. Anwar Hussain, Suresh, and Sunil Dutt make a special guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.09.1975.

This movie had total three songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan as per details given below;

Song Lyricist
Hamaara yaar hai, ham hai, muhabbat hai , jawaani hai Majrooh Sultanpuri
Tum agar pyaar se dekho to mazaa aa jaaye Anjum Jaipuri
Tu jo kahe ban jaaoongi main wahi, mujhme sanam kya nahin Majrooh Sultanpuri

Today’s song is a duet song in the voices of Mohd Rafi and Aarti Mukherjee. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri (I think I am first time coming across this combination, or maybe I had come a song by them but now I am not remembering it).

Music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Only the audio of this song is available. I think that this movie ‘Neelima-1975’ must be an obscure and forgotten movie.

I would request knowledgeable readers and those who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs and their picturization. (though video of one song ‘tu jo kahe ban jaaoongi’ is available on internet.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song … after listening to the song it sounds familiar and maybe I have heard it on radio earlier. I hope readers will enjoy the song too. 😊

With this song the movie ‘Neelimaa-1975’ makes its debut on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saudaagar” released on 26th october 1973, that means it is 15-days short of 47 years ago. The movie had Nutan paired with Amitabh Bachchan (he was yet to taste success, when he signed up for the movie). He played a ‘Gur’ trader who made a living out of ‘gur’ made from Date-syrup by Mahzubeen -a widow played by Nutan. He meets Phoolbanu (Padma Khanna), likes her, and approaches her father with a marriage proposal. Phoolbanu’s father (Murad) asks for ‘Mehar’ which Moti (AB) does not have. So he proposes marriage to Mahzubeen, so that he doesn’t have to pay her for the ‘gur-making’ and save up for the mehar by the end of the ‘gur-season’. At the end of the season he divorces Mahzubeen and again approaches Phoolbanu’s father who is satisfied with the mehar and Moti marries Phoolbanu. But he faces a problem when the ‘gur’ as the product made by Phoolbanu is not on the same level as the previous season and Moti loses customers and business. He is forced to seek out Mahzubeen who has by the married a widower who is honest to her that he wants a mother for his children. Moti requests her to make a few “vats of gur’ she is at first upset at him for the way he had treated her. She relents on seeing Phoolbanu and Moti’s pitiable condition. The movie ends with the two ladies meeting each other affectionately signifying that Mahzubeen had forgiven Moti’s selfishness for the sake of his family.

“Saudaagar” was directed by Sudhendu Roy who was a art director, production designer who later on became a director with Rajshri Production’s “Uphaar” (1971). He was associated with Bimal Roy from 1958/9 in movies like “Madhumati” “Sujata” etc and was active in Bollywood till 1999. His work could be seen in Subhash Ghai’s “Karz” Karma” etc, Yash Chopra’s “Silsila” “Chandni” etc and right on till “Vijeta” (1996; not to be confused with the movie produced by Shashi Kapoor). His youngest daughter Sharmishta has followed in her father’s footsteps.

Coming back to “Saudaagar”, it was based on the Bengali story “Ras” by Narendranath Mitra and was produced by Tarachand Barjatya’s Rajshri Pictures. Ravindra Jain was the writer and composer of its songs. If I am not wrong this was his first Hindi movie. He was born in Aligarh to a homemaker mother and Sanskrit pandit father. He was sent for training in music by his father who recognized his talent very early and he started singing bhajans at temples when he was young.

We have been entertained by his songs in Chor Machaye Shor, Geet Gata Chal and numerous other movies. In this post from “Saudaagar” Atulji has made an interesting observation:- Ravindra Jain made a mark for himself with songs sung by singers other that the legends who were active then. But of course he had Asha, Lata, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey singing a song each for him in this movie. Todays’ song is in Mohd Rafi’s vocals, a very soft song typical Rafi Magic.

This movie had seven songs of which 5 are there on the blog as under

Song Posted on
Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon 4 April 2009
Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye 15 april 2009
Tera mera saath rahe 17 april 2009
Door hai kinaara 18 april 2009
Champa nahin chameli nahin 4 april 2019

Another interesting thing about this movies journey on the blog is it made its debut in April of 2009. We had four songs from that movie in that month. And the next post from the movie happened after a ten year gap in 2019 under the Blog Ten Year Challenge.

Remembering Ravindra Jain today on his anniversary, it is five years since he left this mortal world, but he will be immortal because of his work.

Hindi songs in Bangla Films: 27
—————————————–

One of the many Bangla films in which Uttam Kumar paired with Supriya Devi was ‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970). The film was directed by Agragami. The star cast included Uttam Kumar, Supriya Devi, Nirmal Kumar, Deepa Chatterjee, Asit Baran, Tarun Kumar, Bimal Mitra etc. I have watched the film with English sub-titles on an OTT platform.  The film’s English sub-titles are not as good as they ought to be. They are also not properly synchronized with the scenes. Within these limitations, I could make out the story of the film as under:

Mriganka (Uttam Kumar), an upcoming painter, falls in love with Aditi (Supriya Devi), the singer during their college days. After the completion of college, they decide to get married. Aditi belongs to Christian family with a good financial status in the society whereas Mriganka belongs to an orthodox Hindu middle class family. There is opposition from both the families due to different religious and social status. Both of them get married against the wishes of their respective family. However, Aditi’s father gives some initial financial support to set up the house and also send with them Judith (Deepa Chatterjee), an orphan who has been staying with Aditi’s family since childhood, to support the newly married couple in household work.

With the help of the initial financial support from Aditi’s father, Mriganka gets a large house at a very high rent. He also furnishes the house by buying costly furniture and fixtures. In a short period of their marriage, Mriganka has spent all the money his father-in-law has given to his daughter. He has no income as he is yet to establish himself as a painter of repute. Hence his paintings remain unsold in the exhibitions. Soon, there is a financial crisis for the newly married couple.

Both Mriganka and Aditi meet their common friend Subroto (Nirmal Kumar) to get his guidance as to how to come out of their financial mess. Based on his advice, they move to a smaller house to reduce the rent outgo. Aditi who has been trained in Hindustani classical music decides to take singing as a career and becomes the radio singer. She earns her fees but not enough to run the house. Mriganka is not able to sell his paintings. So, Subroto helps him getting a job in the office. However, being a painter at heart, office work does not interest him. Within short time, he leaves the office job.

In the meanwhile, Aditi has become a famous singer. The gramophone records of her songs are sold like hot cake. She becomes very busy in her singing assignments. She has now become a celebrity. Both are now comfortable on their financial front. However, Mriganka is not able to sell any of his paintings despite getting favourable critical reviews of his paintings. He is not prepared to compromise on the subject of his paintings by which the art lovers can be enticed. Out of frustration, there is constant frictions between Mriganka and Aditi on trivial issues. Mriganka who has been a teetotaler and a non-smoker becomes an alcoholic.  The matter reaches a stage when Aditi misunderstands Mriganka in the company of a female model in her house as a muse for his painting. In the background of intense arguments, Mriganka decides to leave the house. Eventually, Mriganka and Aditi get divorce.

While Aditi’s singing career is on the upper trajectory, Mriganka’s luck is not in his favour. He decides to try his luck out of India by participating in the painting exhibitions in Europe. Despite having differences with his father, Mariganka was fortunate that at the time of the death, his father has left him   his share of savings which has come handy now to finance his trip to Europe. However, Mriganka returns to India without any success in Europe. His health has already started deteriorating forcing him to give up painting.

One day, while coming out of the church, Judith sees Mriganka walking on the road looking very sick. She takes him to her house and nurses him for few days until he recovers from his ill health. Even after that Judith visits Mriganka’s house daily to take care of his food and other daily routine. This information gets passed on to Aditi when Subroto meets her. She gets upset over the ‘scandalous’ relations between Judith and Mriganka but dismisses this information as of no concern to her.

Mriganka gets married to Judith and he is back to painting due to her encouragement. But at the back of her mind, Judith feels that she is indirectly responsible for the separation of Aditi and Mriganka as she had given a false testimony to the divorce court that she had affairs with Mriganka in order to hasten the divorce proceedings under instructions from him. Judith suffers a miscarriage and she dies in the hospital. Aditi attends the burial of Judith where Mriganka and his friend Subroto are present.

The film ends with a scene in which Aditi and Mriganka come out of the burial ground. He is about to go his way when Aditi stops him. Mriganka crosses the road with the support of Aditi holding his hand.

This film is one more example in Bangla films of ending scene being indeterminate leaving it to the audience to interpret in their own way. The first interpretation could be that it was a mere courtesy to help Mriganka to cross the road and drop him in his house in her car. Another interpretation could be that by supporting him to cross the road by holding his hand, they are united as a couple. The third interpretation which looks more probable to me is that Aditi has decided to extend her emotional support to Mriganka after the death of Judith and they remain friends.

At the outset, I thought that the story of the film is akin to Hindi film ‘Abhimaan’ (1973) in which the husband and wife who are professional singers get separated because of ego clashes. But at the end, there is an emotional reunion between the two.

In my view, in ‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970), there are no explicit ego clashes between their respective professions or between man and woman.  Even if it is there, the director has kept that at the low key. The friction points between Mriganka and Aditi arise because the former is not able to spend much time with the latter as she is quite busy in her professional work. Aditi has problem with Mriganka because he spends money on things which are not priorities like alcohol when his own earnings are not enough to get two meals a day. Neither Mriganka has problem with Aditi’s professional pursuit nor Aditi is concerned about Mriganka not able to earn income.

In the height of their frictions, it is Mriganka who decides to go for divorce to give Aditi the space in her professional pursuit. He also knows that she will not divorce him. So, he creates an impression that he has affairs with Judith to get the divorce faster. In sums, I feel that the director has handled the subject with delicate balance, avoiding the label of a feminist to Aditi and a male chauvinist to Mriganka.

‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970) has 5 songs of which one is in Hindi. The song which I am presenting is “Mann Kahaan Laago Mora Chain Ganwaayi Diyo Re’ which is a duet sung by Manna Dey and Aarti Mukherjee. The song is written by Gulzar which is set to music by Nachiketa Ghosh.

The situation of the song is that after becoming popular singer in Bangla songs, a new music director has taken Aditi for the first time to sing a Hindi song to test it in the market. His idea is that if successful, he wants her to accompany him to Mumbai to make her popular in Hindi songs which will also benefit the music director in pursuing his career in Mumbai. However, with so much happening with her in personal front, Aditi finally declines to move out of Kolkata. In real life also, Supriya Devi, after working in Mumbai for 3 films – Begaana’ (1963), ‘Aap Ki Parchhaayian’ (1964) and ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaaon Mein’ (1964), she bid farewell to Bollywood. It is said that she refused Raj Kapoor’s offer to her of a role in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) which eventually went to Simi.

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The troika of Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak and Mrinal Sen had taken Indian cinema to a great height from the 1950s onward. They were regarded as the harbinger of the new wave cinema, also called the parallel cinema. They were all from Bengal and made the films mostly in Bengali. But they had not only had the pan India reach but also, they were globally famous through their films. They won many awards – both National and International.

Tapan Sinha was one more film-maker from Bengal who was a contemporary of Satyajit-Ghatak-Mrinal. He also made mostly Bengali films and had won National and International awards. But the general impression carried in the film circle was that he was not in league with the the troika. The reason was that he was regarded as ‘the middle of the road’ film maker whose films would have some mild doses of commercial ingredients. It is only after Tapan Sinha’s death in January 2009 that some film writers feel that he should have been a part of quartet, Satyajit-Ghatak-Mrinal-Tapan for the realism depicted in his films.

Tapan Sinha made his first film ‘Ankush’ (1954) in Bengali. Since then until 2000, he made 37 films which included some films in Hindi like ‘Zindagi Zindagi (1972), ‘Sagina’ (1974), ‘Ek Doctor Ki Maut’ (1991) etc. He also made some children’s films like ‘Safed Haathi’(1978), ‘Aaj Ka Robinhood’ (1987). Most of his films were based on the stories written by well-known Bengali writers like Gurudev Rabiindranath Tagore, Tarashankar Bandopadhyay, Ramapada Chowdhury, Samresh Basu etc.

Some of Tapan Sinha’s successful Bengali films were remade in Hindi. These include ‘Mere Apne’ (1971) by Gulzar adapted from ‘Apanjan’ (1968), ‘Baawarchi’ (1972) by Hrishikesh Mukherjee from ‘Gulpo Holeo Satti’ (1966), ’Zindagi Zindagi’ (1972) from ‘Khoniker Atithi’ (1959), ‘Sagina’ (1974) from ‘Sagina Mahato’ (1970) and ‘Ijaazat’ (1987) from ‘Jatugriha’ (1964).

‘Haate Baazare’ (Market Place, 1967) was one of the successful films in Bengali directed by Tapan Sinha. Ashok Kumar and Vyjayantimala were in the lead roles with Rudraprasad Sengupta, Ajitesh Bandopadhyay, Bhanu Bandopadhyay, Chinmoy Roy, Chhaya Devi, Samit Bhanja, Partho Mukherjee etc in the supporting roles. It was the first Bengali film for Vyjayantimala. Probably, it was also for the first time, Vyjayantimala sang for herself a Bengali song, cheye thaki cheye thaki along with Mrinal Chakraborty in this film. Vyjayantimala did not know Bengali. But Tapan Sinha did not dub her dialogues in the film with borrowed voice, Instead he made her to rehearse her dialogues after listening to the pre-recorded dialogues on the cassette.

The film was based on a novel of the same name by Banaphul (real name: Balai Chand Mukhopadhyay). The film is available for watching on video sharing platform but there are no English subtitles for those who do not understand Bengali. Still, one can get a feel of the story of the film.

Dr. Mukherjee (Ashok Kumar) is a doctor in a tribal town in Birbhum. He is well respected by the tribal folks as well as others which include Chhipli (Vyjayantimala), a young widow. In his jest to serve the people, Dr Mukherjee has no much time to attend to his wife’s illness of a chronic heart ailment. After the death of his wife, Dr Mukherjee leaves his job and starts a mobile clinic for the poor. Lachhman Lal (Ajitesh Bandopadhyay), the spoilt son of a local landlord is at a loggerhead with him as he protects Chhipli from his lustful eyes. This is resented by Lachhman Lal and as a vengeance, he spreads the rumour about Dr Mukherjee’s relationship with Chhipli who has been working with him as his assistant.

In a night of a tribal get-together where Chhipli also participates in songs and dances, Lachhman Lal hoodwinks Chhipli by sending a message through Nani (Chhaya Devi) that she has been called by Dr Mukherjee. On her way back, he tries to molest Chhipli. In the nick of time, Dr Mukherjee saves her but, in the fight, Dr Mukherjee strangulates Lachhman to death and in the process, he is also seriously injured. Dr Mukherjee dies the next day. But Chhipli continues to carry forward the work of the mobile clinic in the village with the help of a young doctor.

The film was not only a commercial success, it also won the National Film Award for the Best Feature Film.

By the way, there is a train named as ‘Haate Bazare Express’ which runs from Sealdah (Kolkatta) to Saharsa Junction/Purnia.

‘Haate Baazare’ (1967) had 3 songs, one of which I am presenting here because it is in Hindi. The song is ‘aage aage nanadi chale peechhe nanadaya’ sung by Chinmoy Roy, Mrinal Chakraborty and Aarati Mukherjee. The song is set to music by Tapan Sinha. The name of the lyricist for Hindi song is not mentioned. But the wordings of the song seem to indicate that it is a traditional song. Incidentally, Majrooh Sultanpuri also used some lines from this song in pyaare nanadaya sarota kahaan bhool aaye for Hindi film, ‘Zamaana’ (1985), strengthening my guess that it is based on a traditional folk song. Most importantly, this song has the quality of captivating the listeners and the folk song has that quality even with the meaningless lyrics.

In the song, while Chinmoy Roy sings for himself, Mrinal Chakraborty sings for an actor whom I guess to be Partho Mukherjee. He sings in a mix of Bengali and Hindi words, probably that is the dialect spoken in Birbhum, a border district with Bihar. Aarati Mukherjee sings for Vyjayantimala.

Enjoy this fun filled teasing song.

Two signature melodies, one sweet voice,

Do Naina, Aur Ek Kahaani

Do Panchhi, Do Tinke, Kaho Le Ke Chale Hain Kahaan

And the voice – Aarti Mukherjee.

Celebrating Aarti ji’s birthday today – she turns 76 today. Greetings and best wishes to her for good health, and many more such celebrations to follow.

Aarti ji was born in Calcutta, in 1943. Along with her formal school education, her grooming in classical music also continued side by side, at the feet of teachers like Shri Chinmoy Lahiri, Shri Susheel Bannerjee and Ustad Mohammed Sageeruddin. It was a childhood dream for her to be a famous singer, and be counted in the same list as Lata Mangeshkar.

In her teen years – she was just 12 or 13, in 1955 she appeared in the ‘All India Music Talent Contest’ in Calcutta. Then couple of years down the road, in 1957, she participated in the Metro-Murphy Talent Search Contest held in Bombay. The panel of judges were the esteemed cream of music directors from Hindi cinema – Anil Biswas, Naushad, Vasant Desai and C Ramchandra. She was judged to be the winner in the female singer category. This recognition opened doors for her as a playback singer in the world of cinema. She was just fourteen years old.

Vasant Desai gave her the debut break when he invited her to sing for the 1958 film ‘Do Phool’. It is a chirpy lilting children’s song that she rendered so effectively – “Matak Matak Naachoon Re”. Oportunities started to come her way. She sang a duet with Lata ji, for the film ‘Sahaara’, also 1950 – “Atkan Matkan Dahi Chatokan”. Then on to ‘Schoolmaster’ in 1959, and ‘Angulimaal’, ‘Apna Ghar’ in 1960. The song “Dheere Dheera Dhal Re Chanda” is one of her earliest popular melodies.

In 1962, she got her first break in Bangla films, with the film ‘Kanya’. Her versatility and her sweet voice helped her to make a place for herself in the Bangla cinema, coming quickly to the level of popularity of Sandhya Mukherjee, who was the lead playback singer in that era. She has given playback to almost all the stalwart leading ladies of Bangla cinema of that time – Aparna Sen, Sharmila Tagore, Madhabi Mukherji, Debashri Roy, and Tanuja etc.  Her popularity was at its peak in 1970s.

Meanwhile, she continued to sing in Hindi films, such sweet renditions like – “Mat Jaiyo Piya Pardes Sajaniya Paiyaan Pade Re” (‘Vidyapati’, 1964), “Saara Mora Kajra Chhudaaya Tu Ne” (‘Do Dil’, 1965), “Kirnon Ki Dori Chaand Ka Palna” (‘Maya Sundari’, 1967), “Jaago Anjaani Rajdulaari” (‘Ek Surat Do Dil’. 1968), and more.

In 1975 came the popular and successful ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ – in which Ravindra Jain gave us such beautiful melodies – “Shyam Teri Bansi. . .”, “Kar Gaya Kaanha Milan Ka Waada” and “Main Wahi, Darpan Wahi”.

Aarti ji has won the Filmfare award for the best female playback singer in 1983 for the song of ‘Maasoom’ – “Do Naina. . .”. She has also won the Bengal Film Journalists Award for best playback singer in 1967, for film ‘Golpo Hoelo Satyi’ and 1976, for ‘Chhutir Phande’. For her vocal performance in ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975), she was honored with the Mian Tansen Award.

Today, I present a very interesting and a very pleasing melody from the 1959 film ‘Schoolmaster’. The film is a Hindi remake of the 1958 hit Kannada film, of the same name. The film is produced and directed by BR Panthulu, under the banner of Padmini Pictures. The star cast for this film is listed as BR Panthalu, Radha Kishan, Ulhas, MV Rajamma, Shakeela, B Saroja Devi, Kamini Kadam, Lalita Pawar, Achla Sachdev, Karan Diwan, David, Jawahar Kaul, Raja Gosavi, Puranik, Vishwa Mehra, Shivaji Ganeshan, Baby Laxmi, Kusumlata, Kumuda, Shashikala, Venkatesh, Gopi Nath, Ganesh, Vijay, Pramod, and Ramesh. The story of the film is a typical family drama of a joint family – a retired schoolmaster with three sons, and he ends up losing his house and even a respectful accommodation with his children. This theme has been replayed in many films, earlier and later.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. All the song have been written by Kavi Pradeep. The music is by Vasant Desai. Vasant Desai has used as many 10 playback singers in this film – Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Geeta Dutt, Talat Mehmood, Mahendra Kapoor, Pradeep, Lalita, Indu and Sarla. And then there is this one solo song in the voice of Aarti Mukherjee.

A lovely melody, and a very lovely rendition. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Ek Do Teen, Gin Bhai Gin  (School Master) (1959) Singer – Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics – Kavi Pradeep, MD – Vasant Desai

“Aarambh”(1976) was directed by Gyan Kumar for Prerna Pictures, Calcutta.

Tumhaare bina o sajna adhoori hoon main 14690 12-Oct-2018

Here is the fourth and final song from “Aarambh”(1976) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Aarti Mukherji. Shri Shalabh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anand Shankar.

Only the audio of the song is available. Assuing that Rama Vij was the leading lady of the movie, my guess is that this song was picturised on her (playing a wronged lady) standing near a piano (being played by the hero) where she is blessing the hero despite being wronged. 🙂

Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get one word right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, all the songs in the movie are now covered and “Aarambh”(1976) joins the list of movies that are YIPPIED in the blog. This movie becomes the 150th movie starting with the letter “A” that has been YIPPIED in the blog. 🙂


Song-Khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe (Aarambh)(1976) Singer-Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics-Shri Shalabh, MD-Anand Shankar

Lyrics

khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe
zindagi pyaar ke saanche mein sada dhalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe

manzilen khud hi miley raah se teri aakar
manzilen khud hi miley raah se teri aakar
tere jazbaat e tamanna ki raushni paa kar
teri azmat mein
azmat mein
nihaan rasme wafa milti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe
khush rahe ae
khush rahe tu

zindagi phoolon bhari geeton bhari ho teri ee
zindagi phoolon bhari geeton bhari ho teri
bas yahi ek dua tere liye hai meri
tere gulshan mein kali kali
khwaabon mein pali khilti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe
zindagi pyaar ke saanche mein sada dhalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu
khush rahe ae
khush rahe tu

tumhaare bina o sajna

mere man ke gagan ke tumhi chandrma
meri har raat tumse bani poornima
tum ho baadal
tumhaari mayuri hoon main
jiski manzil ho tum
aisi doori hoon main
tumhaare bina o sajna
adhoori hoon main

tum mujhe yoon miley
gandh se jyun pawan
dhany hai paa tumhen mera tan mera man
preet ki kalpna se poori hoon main
jiski manzil ho tum
aisi doori hoon main
tumhaare bina o sajna
adhoori hoon main

Missing Films of 1960s – 78
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And here is the 4001st film to find its place on our blog. Thanks Atul ji, for a very interesting sojourn through a tale of years and numbers. The tales, most surely, is not yet done with. So many more chapters are still to be written, and I am sure there is still a ton of surprises that are waiting in the shadows.

As the years progress, it is to be expected that the number of people interested in this music form will be lessening. Maybe so, but the experience so far has been that the interest in this music form continues to retain the attention of music lovers. Their numbers may be reducing through a natural process, but the music is continuously attracting new followers. Let me mention a few very interesting developments which are very recent.

When digital music arrived on the scene, it took the world by storm. Every creator of music, every producer of music items made a beeline for the CDs and the digitally converted and compressed formats. Everything that is anything in music, well almost, is now available in mp3 and other digital formats, with a greater ease of storage and sharing. However, the aficionado listeners, having spent a lot of time with digital music are probably beginning to miss the fidelity of the analog recordings – of the vinyl records and the coated plastic tapes. As we all know, digitization is basically a process to slice the stream of music into tiny packets and store them in digital formats. This slicing process (called sampling), however fine tuned and precise it may be, still leads to a loss of content. When the digital sampling happens, and packets are created, it does drop out minute fractions of audio stream in between the packets. The resulting output may get subjected to further such process, as folks try more digital processes to ‘clean’ the sound and to tweak the different frequency ranges to their personal preferences. Every time such a transformation process is applied to a stream of music, it loses some fraction of its original content. I have been part of listening sessions wherein the differences between the analog audio tracks and their digitally transformed versions, have been demonstrated. With some surprising differences.

In recent months and years, there has been a slowly progressing turnback towards the analog sound once again. In Europe, the music companies have started pressing vinyl records once again, and we are seeing more and more of them in the market. Even many latest Hindi films are releasing their music on LPs once again. Just go to music stores, and to the online stores, and today, you can buy a much larger selection of latest music on LPs than maybe 10 or 15 years ago.

In the US, there is a spurt in the demand of original music tracks on 78 rpm records, and their market is really going up. Although I have not yet heard about a return back to 78 rpm pressing factories. But who knows, the value economics may still turn the tide in that direction.

In India, besides the music of newer Hindi films coming on LPs, there is another move coming up, towards re-releasing the available earliest music of the 1900s to 1940s on LP records. One of the factors is that majority of the music of that period is now technically out of copyright ownership status and is in public domain. I am aware of at least on such enterprise who are working to bring back to life, the music of the likes of Gauhar Jaan and Janakibai, and release the available collections in LP format. I have a feeling this will trend is only going to grow over the years, and we should be seeing more players come into this market. There is a ton of non-film music that is still available in 78 rpm format that is waiting for a second life. Digital is all well, but listeners are now returning to the gramophone.

In an interesting conversation just last month, I got this surprise news that some music companies are working to bring back the cassette tape into the market once again. The purity and the fidelity of the sound is once again the driving force behind this renewal. Over the decades, the research on the different storage media and formats, has established that the original media formats continue to be the safest, the most reliable and the most enduring. The life span of celluloid and plastic tapes (audio and VHS) has proven to be longer lasting than CDs and hard disks. Of course the caveat is that they are stored in proper conditions. The well stored celluloid films from the late 1800s are still going strong, much better than the VHS tapes, and which in turn are proving to be much longer lasting than DVDs and hard disks.

I will turn this detour into the technical aspects of media storage, back to where I had started from. That there still are a ton of surprises that are probably waiting in the shadows. Let me bring up another very interesting aspect of this discussion – the collections that are sitting with private collectors. Yes, there are many a sizeable collections of records that are in the possession of private collectors. With the passing of years and the intervention of natural processes, a number of these collections are changing hands and getting redistributed. These collections, for decades, have been religiously guarded and kept ultra safe for private listening only. With passage of time and change of guard (ownership thru inheritance), and for lack of interest on the part of the inheritee, these collections are now seeing light of the day. Knowledgeable collectors are avidly pursuing such opportunities to take a pick of some very well preserved and very rare recordings. A very interesting aside here is that collectors in Pakistan are also in the fray, and they are making a good harvest. As per comments made in discussions in music collector circles, in good probability, there are more 78 rpm records now in Pakistan than here in India. And that is because the Pakistani collectors seem to be keeping much better tabs on such movements of private collections than their Indian counterparts.

My hope and my expectation is that in this process of collections changing hands and moving to different owners, we may see some more of unheard, unlisted and unexpected recordings come out into public domain.  Gosh, who knows what we may still encounter as the search brings up more and more hitherto unavailable items into the open.

Coming to the 4001st film – a very obscure and unfamiliar name – ‘Ek Surat Do Dil’ from 1968. Except for the listing in the Geet Kosh, I have no other information traceable, for this film. This is a film produced in Calcutta, under the banner of Kashi Alok Chitram. There is no information available about the actors or producer/director of this film. The Geet Kosh lists eight songs for this film. It appears as if only one record has surfaced in the public domain so far, and that seems to be the only source of information available. The names of the singers, songwriters and the music director seem to have been taken from the record label itself. The name of the music director is Bijan Pal. This name appears in the Geet Kosh only for this one film. And that’s it. Same is with the songwriter – Ramji Singh. A completely unfamiliar and obscure name, appearing in the Geet Kosh for this one solitary song.

Aha, the singer names are more familiar – Subir Sen and Aarti Mukherjee. The tune and the arrangement is very atypical. The sound makes one feel that this tune is heard somewhere before, but I cannot place anything specifically.

4001st film makes its debut here today. Let us take a quick look at the 1968 numbers. As per Geet Kosh, there are 72 films plus one Bhojpuri film. Of the 72 Hindi films, 66 films are already represented on our blog. This is the 67th film to come on board. That leaves 5 more to get – I think we will get to see at least a couple of more films from this year.

And yes, btw, 1968 is a very interesting and special year for our blog. Can you guess?  🙂

Lyrics

jaago anjaani
raajdulaari
dhal gaya chanda
kati raat saari
jaago anjaani
raajdulaari
dhal gaya chanda
kati raat saari
jaago anjaani. . .

oi re..ae..ae..ae..ae

ye angdaai kehti kahaani
meri rag rag mein machle jawaani
har kali par bhanwar gungunaate
pyaar ki raagni hain sunaate
aa ja re meet mere
ban ke geet mere
kaisi hai ye beqaraari
aa ja re meet mere
ban ke geet mere
kaisi hai ye beqaraari
jaago anjaani
raajdulaari
dhal gaya chanda
kati raat saari
jaago anjaani
raajdulaari
dhal gaya chanda
kati raat saari
jaago anjaani. . .

ye hawa madbhari ye bahaaren
phool muska ke mujhko pukaaren
jhoomta hai nadi ka kinaara
haaye kaisa suhaana nazaara
na jaao door kahin
aa jaao paas yahin
royegi birhan tumhaari
na jaao door kahin
aa jaao paas yahin
royegi birhan tumhaari
jaago anjaani
raajdulaari
dhal gaya chanda
kati raat saari
jaago anjaani
raajdulaari
dhal gaya chanda
kati raat saari
jaago anjaani. . .

जागो अनजानी
राजदुलारी
ढाल गया चंदा
कटी रात सारी
जागो अनजानी
राजदुलारी
ढाल गया चंदा
कटी रात सारी
जागो अनजानी॰ ॰ ॰

ओई रे॰॰ए॰॰ए॰॰ए॰॰ए

ये अंगड़ाई कहती कहानी
मेरी रग रग में मचले जवानी
हर काली पर भँवर गुनगुनाते
प्यार की रागनी हैं सुनाते
आ जा रे मीत मेरे
बन के गीत मेरे
कैसी है ये बेक़रारी
आ जा रे मीत मेरे
बन के गीत मेरे
कैसी है ये बेक़रारी
जागो अनजानी
राजदुलारी
ढल गया चंदा
कटी रात सारी
जागो अनजानी
राजदुलारी
ढल गया चंदा
कटी रात सारी
जागो अनजानी॰ ॰ ॰

ये हवा मदभरी ये बहारें
फूल मुस्का के मुझको पुकारें
झूमता है नदी का किनारा
हाय कैसा सुहाना नज़ारा
ना जाओ दूर कहीं
आ जाओ पास यहीं
रोएगी बिरहन तुम्हारी
ना जाओ दूर कहीं
आ जाओ पास यहीं
रोएगी बिरहन तुम्हारी
जागो अनजानी
राजदुलारी
ढल गया चंदा
कटी रात सारी
जागो अनजानी
राजदुलारी
ढल गया चंदा
कटी रात सारी
जागो अनजानी॰ ॰ ॰
