“Gunsundari”(1948) was directed by Ratibhai Punatkar for Ajit Pictures, Bombay. This “social”movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Dulari, Chhagan Romeo, Saraswati, Babu Raje, Jalejar Reutor, Kamlesh Thakkar, Nazeera, Ibrahim, Chandramukhi, Master Pransukh etc in it.

The movie had 14 songs in it that were composed by three music directors viz. Bulo C Rani, Hansraj Bahl and Avinsh Vyas.

Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Gunsundari”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Pt Indra Chandra is the lyricist. The music director of this song is not known even though there were three music directors in the movie.

Only the audio of the song is available. The song is a fun song where a devrani (husband’s younger sister) teases her bhaabhi and exhorts her to be modern in her outlook. The list of things that made an Indian lady look modern in 1948 makes for interesting reading.

Here is this fun song from “Gunsundari”(1948). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. I also request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the music director of this song. My guess is that it could be Avinash Vyas.


Song-Bhaabhi o bhaabhi (Gunsundari)(1948) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Pt Indra Chandra

Blog Day : 3608 Post No. : 14392

This is one of the subjects that I longed to share. And since the subject is totally different from normal Hindi movie story topics viz. love stories, lost and found, family drama etc. I had to find relevant songs which would be either directly relevant to the subject or at least those which can easily convey the message that I intend to put in my write up/s. Though the first song that I selected came easily and that too during a real life experience when I was thinking of this topic. However the first song in this series is not that one but another song which I came across later when I was still working on the write up.

It has been almost more than three and half years now when I thought about writing on this subject i.e. ‘road-traffic’ in our country. Or putting it differently, ‘how we Indians actually are when we are on road. . .’ or more precisely it’s about our ‘civic sense on the roads’.

Over the years in this journey of my life, I have got this opportunity to travel to many places in India because of my job postings and have got to observe and learn a lot about how we, the people of India are actually when we are on the road and how we are when we are travelling in various modes of road transport.

When I start writing on the subject and gather all that I wish to write, the final article became too long, so I decided to split it in smaller articles (as rightly guided by one of our beloved seniors) and thus present the subject under a mini-series. But that will also require relevant songs from Hindi movies and though at that time I had only one or two in mind, over this period I marked one more which will fit with this subject.

I am herewith taking on this new mini series and presenting this first post on our blog – ‘Beta Sambhal Ke Chalnaa’.

Before moving on to the main article let me mention here that personally I believe there always is space for improvement in every sphere of life, and while we should move positively on every aspect, we should also assess our shortcomings time to time and these ‘shortcomings’ should not be treated as a ‘negativity’. Instead they should be taken as subjects of introspection and they should be our future plans to improve in positive direction with innovations and targeting an overall development and improvement in ‘standard of living’ and ‘quality of life’.

This post is actually about my thoughts which I was going through when the discussions for ‘smart cities’ were in the news then. I refer to an experience from around November-December 2014. At that time I was in Kachchh (Gujarat). My daily commute to work was 2×60 kms on public transport (ST bus) mainly. As it took almost an hour and half to reach my stations both ends I was getting enough time to read something, or take a nap sometime in addition to the music being played in the bus.

Travelling through the roads I was always thinking of how the roads in the developed countries must be like and what road conditions and road transport and ‘traffic discipline’ they must be maintaining and following there. What is the situation in cities of other countries? Or how the other smart cities in the world are like?

As an optimist I began to imagine how our country would be after the initiative of the ‘smart cities’. How it would be affecting our daily routine life and our public transport, specifically would it change our ‘Roads’ (the word ‘Road’ here has many connotations)? What will actually change when the cities go smart? And most importantly will it be helpful to save the precious lives lost on the ‘Indian Roads’ every year due to accidents? Will it be helpful to prevent ‘human potential’ losses of the nation or will it save the lives of young promising and aspiring youths who lose their precious lives only because of the sheer negligence and carelessness, their own, as well as of others?

In and around the town I was living there, road-accidents were a regular occurrence; there was not a single day when the newspaper was without the reporting of an accident. Many aspiring youngsters, senior citizens, children lost their life in fatal road accidents. The industrialization there was followed by increase in cargo movements and so heavy trailers and containers were a regular part of traffic.

And so, sometimes the tipping over of huge containers on turnings was also a daily feature. I wondered how the licenses were given to young inexperienced drivers, who drove the big containers? Was there any assessment of the ‘maturity content’ of a person issuing licenses?  Certainly a young guy of an age of 18-20 would not have the expertise and experience of a driver of an older age.

During that period, I used to regularly tweet about the accidents there and precious lives lost on the road. In my case while I would criticize the bad practices, I do also always appreciate whenever there is an improvement or efforts initiated in positive directions, may be at a smaller scale. There is always a space for improvement, we have to find it. . .

So among this ‘criticism’ of the ‘system’ by me, there was one incident that had an indication of ‘good sense prevailing’ and a sign of ‘improvement’ happening, which I think I must note here.

One evening as I was on my return journey from office, there happened to be an accident on the road and it took place just a few minutes before when I was passing by from that place. A trailer carrying a container had toppled over and its driver was injured. Fortunately no other vehicle or person was around it and coming from either side so there was no major mishap or fatality.  But still the driver had broken his leg and trapped inside the cabin. People rushed to rescue the driver.

While I and my friend rushed towards the injured to help, somebody guided me to make a call to the emergency services on 108. A little hesitant at first, I made call on this number and soon I started receiving calls from SHQ & DHQ asking about the exact location of the accident and as they keep tracking with me, exactly at the 13th minute from the call was made, an ambulance was standing at the accident site, ready to provide medical aid to the injured.

I can never forget this. Though the town was not far away from the accident site, still the action taken by the authorities was commendable and I was very happy.

On the other day when I was travelling back to home, it was already around nine in the evening by then, and I was dreaming about the ‘Smart City’ and the roads this city would have. As the bus entered the town, on the main road of the town there were cattle on the road sitting and relaxing, without bothering about this world. The driver of our bus was working hard to find the way and blowing the horn continuously and driving the bus in a zigzag fashion and songs were already playing on the music system in the bus. . .  That song we shall enjoy in next post of this series 🙂

At work places, to ensure ‘safety’ we do have safety and cautionary slogans prominently displayed in the area to educate and disciplined the work force. The song that I present today, does have this ‘cautionary message’ but going further its other lines are like a ‘threat’. 🙂

I present this ‘soft and mild warning’ song which says ‘beta sambhal ke chalna’. . ., to start with a ‘smart message’. 🙂

It seems that the video of this song is not available, so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this song and this movie ‘Mr John -1959’

‘Mr John’ (1959) was directed by Inder for NK Productions, Bombay. It was produced by Nigam. It had Shyama, Johny Walker, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Iftikhar, Krishnakumari, Mumtaz, Tuntun, Mohan Choti, Kamal Mohan, Sampson, Uma Dutt, Ravi, Champak Lala, Rashid, Daraz, Wahid, Genius, Tiwari, Ramlal, Anil, Singh, Jani, Gaus, Tarun Kumar, Ajay Kumar, Ajit, B Fazal Kareem, Mukhtar, and Pt Baijnath.

The film has seven songs penned by Jan Nisar Akhtar and composed by N.Datta. Two songs of this film are already posted on the blog. Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi.

 


Song – Beta Sambhal Ke Chalna (Mr John) (1959) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

बेटा संभल के चलना
बेटा संभल के चलना
ज्यादा नहीं उछलना
रस्ता बहोत है चिकना
धीरे से बच निकलना
बेटा संभल के चलना

पैदल जो फिरना है
किस्मत में भैय्या
सीने पे चलता है
मोटर का पहिया
पैदल जो फिरना है
किस्मत में भैय्या
सीने पे चलता है
मोटर का पहिया
दिल को पड़े कुचलना
बेटा संभल के चलना
अहा आ
बेटा संभल के चलना
बेटा संभल के चलना
ज्यादा नहीं उछलना
रस्ता बहोत है चिकना
धीरे से बच निकलना
बेटा संभल के चलना आ
नकली ये चेहरे हैं
इनपे न जाना
पौडर ही पौडर हैं
धोखा न खाना
हाँ
समझे भाई
नकली ये चेहरे हैं
इनपे न जाना
पौडर ही पौडर हैं
धोखा न खाना
इनपे न दिल बदलना
बेटा संभल के चलना
ओ बेटा संभल के चलना
ज्यादा नहीं उछलना
रस्ता बहोत है चिकना
धीरे से बच निकलना
बेटा संभल के चलना आ

चांदी के तारों में
जकड़े न जाना
पैसे की लालच में
पकडे न जाना आ आ
चांदी के तारों में
जकड़े न जाना
पैसे की लालच में
पकडे न जाना
रह जाएगा मचलना
बेटा संभल के चलना
ओ बेटा संभल के चलना
ज्यादा नहीं उछलना
रस्ता बहोत है चिकना
धीरे से बच निकलना

“Pardesi Mehmaan”(1948) was directed by Aspi for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The move had Kamal Kapoor, Husn Banu, Rajrani, Ghulam Mohammed, Sheikh Hasan, Abdul Rehman, Afghan Sandow, Azim, Bipin Gupta, Kaizer etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Pardesi Mehmaan”(1948) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Husn Bano. Pt Indra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. Seeing that Husn Bano’s name is there in the cast, it can be safely assumed that the song is picturised on herself. From the lyrics, this song is obviously the dukhda of a dukhiyaari who is expected to lead her life while suffering in silence. 🙂


Song-Pee aansoo pee aansoo pee aahen bhar bhar jee(Pardesi Mehmaan)(1948) Singer-Husn Bano, Lyrics-Pt Indra, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Missing Films of 1960s – 50
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Films get made, they are processed and censored, they get released – and quite a number of them simply fade away without a trace. The fate is shared by many a films. Unless the film was a success, or was produced by a big production house, or had a cast of actors or music director associated with it, who were well known.

I do not mean to say that all films were disasters, and were financial debacles. No. Rather many of the B/C grade adventures and stunt type films, would actually do very good business in the 2nd and 3rd tiered circuits, catering to a class of audience, who were avowed loyalists to this genre. So they may not have been failures as such. But then, not being associated with big names in the industry, there generally was no one to look after them, once the first and second runs in the theatres were done with. What with the celluloid originals requiring large storage spaces, and also the controlled environment to maintain, most producer simply turned their backs on these films, and moved on with their pockets filled as much as the film’s run could give them. After that, it was the trash heap, or the fire of silver extractors, that simply destroyed so many of these films. ‘Heritage’ is probably a word that our film industry simply does not comprehend.

‘Baaghi Haseena’ is one such film from the year 1965. Categorized as a fantasy cum stunt film, it comes from the banner of Award Films, Bombay and its director’s name is given simply as Ram. An abbreviated list of actors includes Jairaj, Chitra, Sherry, Sheikh and Helen. The first two are the lead pair, Sherry most likely is the villain of the piece, Sheikh is the comic relief, and Helen, of course, is the entertainment attraction for the audiences. And voila, the film is made.

Ok, sorry – songs are needed. So there is a music director – the name is PD Sharma. As I scanned some part of the Geet Kosh, I find no other reference to this name, anywhere else. So this most likely, is the only film done by this music director. I do find a name that might be close – Pandit Damodar Sharma. But that is way back in 1948. In all likelihood, these two are not the same person. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to add more information here, if available.

The songwriter’s name is lost. The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film, also gives indication that there might be more. The singer names are available and so are the 78 rpm record nos. One possibility is that this detail is probably from the HMV catalogs.

The film has two wonderful solo songs by Asha Bhosle. I present today, one of them, for your listening pleasure. Listening to the words and rendition, it seems very likely that these two Asha Bhosle songs could be performed by Helen. The reason I say so is this – the list of songs contains a Sumam Kalyanpur solo and a Suman-Rafi duet. Likelihood is that the Suman Kalyanpur songs are lip synced by the leading lady, especially that the duet would be picturized on the lead pair. That would leave the Asha Bhosle songs to be picturized on Helen. It is a conjecture that I am making, and not a claim. Once again, I request other knowledgeable readers to please comment on this.

Listen to this wonderfully paced song, whose words are sounding so much like a dance song by Helen. And PD Sharma sir ji – wow and thanks for this music piece. It is kind of sad that we do not find another film listed with your name as music director.

With this song, the 1965 film ‘Baaghi Haseena’ makes its debut on the blog today. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Bholi Surat Pe Na Jaana  (Baaghi Haseena) (1965) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – [Unatributed], MD – PD Sharma

Lyrics

chaand ka jawaab main hoon

aaja aaja saaqiya

tu hai dil ke taar mein

thukra na mujhko aye zaalima
thukra na mujhko aye zaalima
thukra na mujhko aye zaalima

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Special Voices of the 1970s – 1 # Shailendra Singh #
———————————————–———————————-

We have already begun yet another new year full of music and nostalgia on this blog. As we leave the past year behind us, it must have added some memories and moments to cherish for every one of us and in turn adding more memorable moments to our existing ‘nostalgia bank’.

Some may have got opportunities to travel, (I wish one should travel a lot) and meet peoples from different walks of life, enjoy the diversity of our own culture by visiting parts of the country hitherto not visited and enjoy the variety of cuisines across our great country (or may be abroad, if one gets a chance) and leave behind and gather some unforgettable memories and learnings too 🙂

Aadmi musaafir hai aata jaata hai

And that is how days and years pass by and we continue with the journey of our life still missing those beautiful days but enjoying relishing the memories (Beete Huye Lamhon Ki Kasak Saath To Hogi) and the times, which after a gap of some years become more and more nostalgic for us. And ‘nostalgia’ is yet another, or stronger, reason (for me it is) that we enjoy music, movies, and the memories associated and connected with them.

In my childhood days this song “Sabko Mubaarak Naya Saal” used to be played on New Year day and another song “Khush Hai Zamaana Aaj Pehli Taarikh Hai” was a favorite on every first day of a new month. And like this many other songs that we have been listening over the years or that one listens during different stages of life easily become part of our memories. We also keep adding new songs by listening or watching them in new movies around. Or even some old songs which we are listening first time and they were not known to us till this date.

Now if one is associated with a blog called atulsongaday.me and who is aware of that till 1980 only we have around 40,000 songs from Hindi movies, one is surely to get more ‘aware’ of many songs and looking to it as a ‘creation’ and not merely holding one’s list of favorite songs which one has been carrying over the years and had not been aware of the ‘treasure trove’ of ‘movie songs’ one has not listened to.

Some songs continue with their old listeners with new addition of more songs and some older songs/voices tend to find new listeners /fans from new generations too. And as Gulzar Saab has rightly put it in one of his albums ‘Fursat Ke Raat Din’…

geet kabhi boodhhe nahin hote
unke chehron par jhurriyaan nahin girti….

wo palte rehte hain, chalte rehte hain

Beginning of a new year also gives us an opportunity to start new things and make new resolutions too. In one of my previous employment, my boss always said that the first day or ‘pehli taarikh’ is always the best day to start a new thing or take on a new goal if one is wishing to do so. This post was supposed to be there on 1st Jan, but it got delayed due to ‘technical problems’ 🙂 and later on due to ‘unforeseen situations’ – no, no, not ‘acts of God’ 🙂 . Nevertheless, if we listen to the song and what has been said in this song, one can take the words (said in this song) for ones ‘new year resolution’ too 🙂

And as a part of initiating something ‘new’ in this ‘new year’ I am going to share this new series representing my thoughts and songs sung by some ‘special voices’ (I don’t know if I can call them as ‘unique voices’) which were there in the ‘decade of seventies’ and yes in their own way they have left an indelible mark on the minds of music lovers – may be only for those who have grown up during end sixties – to end seventies – or even till early eighties.

I sincerely hope that all of us are going to enjoy these voices who have been part of my growing years and may be of others of my era too.

The voice – Singer Shailendra Singh

Singer and actor Shailendra Singh was born in Mumbai on 4th October 1952. He came from a Punjabi family but since he grow up in Mumbai he could not talk fluently in Punjabi (even till date, I think).

Shailendra Singh’s father was associated with V. Shantaram ji as a Chief Assistant Director and later on with Rajshri Productions (as a ‘Publicity Officer’ from ‘Dosti’), so he comes from a family having ‘film background’ and it was natural for him to get attracted to movies. After his schooling with ‘Hill Green High School’, Feder Road, Bombay, he joined the St Xavier’s College in Mumbai but later he left his studies in third year as he was interested in acting, and given to his looks he wanted to be an actor. So, he joined the ‘Film and Television Institute’ at Pune when he was around eighteen in 1971 in acting course.

He was also learning music or rather singing from his childhood days but not to become as a ‘playback singer’. He was more interested in singing ‘ghazals’ first and was singing the ‘film songs’ as an ‘amateurish’. It so happened that Raj Kapoor was looking for a new voice to launch Rishi Kapoor in ‘Bobby’ (1973). VP Sathe (of ‘Bombay Publicity’) was a close friend of Shailendra Singh’s father. And VP Sathe and KA Abbas had been working jointly as script writer for Raj Kapoor.

Now being close to Shailendra Singh’s family VP Sathe was aware of Shailendra Singh’s singing abilities. So, when Raj Kapoor was looking for a new voice he suggested Shailendra Singh’s name. At that time Shailendra Singh was pursuing his course in acting at the FTII, Poona and was in second year (of two-year course). He was called for the voice test by Raj Kapoor. Raj Kapoor took him to Laxmikant-Pyarelal where Laxmikant take his test with four or five musicians (and one them was Rajesh Roshan).

After few days Shailendra Singh was told about his selection and the first song he recorded was “Main Shaayar To Nahin” for ‘Bobby’ (1973). This was also the ‘muhurat‘ song for the film. Lata Mangeshkar was also present there to bless him on the occasion.

Shailendra Singh has very high regards for all the legendary singers – Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh, Manna Dey, and Mahendra Kapoor – and who were senior to him when he joined the industry. And he get a chance to sing with them which till then was his dream. He is a great fan of Rafi Saab and among the singers Rafi Saab is his idol.  The song “Tere Mere Sapne Ab Ek Rang Hain” sung by Rafi Saab is his most favorite Rafi song. So when he got this opportunity to sing with Rafi Saab, it was like a dream coming true for him. The first duet he sang with Rafi Saab is for this movie ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977); and the song – “Bure Kaam Ka Bura Natija, Kyun Bhai Chacha, Haan Bhatija”. This song stood at number twenty-one of the annual Binaca Geetmala of that year 1977.

He was spotted by Manmohan Desai to sing for this movie when he was already selected for ‘Bobby’. However, Manmohan Desai assured Raj Kapoor that his movie will be released only after ‘Bobby’ was released. The songs of ‘Bobby’ became very popular then and Shailendra Singh was nominated for the ‘Best Male Playback Singer’ for the song “Main Shaayar To Nahin’. But the he didn’t win for that.

He got his first acting break for the movie ‘Do Jaasoos’ (1975). Later on, he also acted in his father’s home production ‘Agreement’ (1980), and he has had a guest appearance in ‘Naukar’ (1979) and Mehmood’s – ‘Janta Hawaldar’ (1979). He acted in a Bengali film as a hero with Aparna Sen and the movie was ‘Ajosro Dhanyobaad (Many Many Thanks).

I remember watching ‘Do Jaasoos’ with my uncle and its songs are there in my memory since then. And particularly this one song of the movie – “Purvaiyya Le Ke Chali Meri Naiyya’ sung by Shailendra Singh and Lata Mangeshkar is the one which whenever I listen I get transported to that timeline and gives me entirely different nostalgic feeling again.

In my childhood the songs from the movie ‘Bobby’ were also there and they were frequently played on loudspeakers/radio, but may be since I had not watched this movie its songs did not appeal much to my impressionable mind. Whereas songs from the movie ‘Rafoo Chakkar’ and particularly this song “Tumko o Mere Dil Ne” is another one which is my all-time favorite and it brings back memories.

Then there are songs like “Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi Aisa Ho Jaata Hai“, “Gumche Lage Hain Gehne”, “Meri Dilruba Tujhko Aana Padega”, “Mere Bas Mein Agar Kuchh Hota”, “Hum Ne Tum Ko Dekha, Tum Ne Hum Ko Dekha Aise“, “Hoga Tumse Pyaara Kaun’ (from the early eighties). There are many of his songs which I like or which have been popular, however I have mentioned above only those songs which give me ‘nostalgic’ feeling most.

His singing career had been active during the seventies and eighties but later on the new offerings to him got reduced (as told by him in his interview available on YT) as new singers keep coming. So far “Jaipur Se Nikli Gaadi” for ‘Gurudev-1993’, has remained as his last song for the movies.

Coming back to the movie of the song being presented today – ‘Chacha Bhatija’ is a ‘Dreamland’ presentation. It was produced by Baldev Pushkarna and MM Malhotra, and is directed by Manmohan Desai. The star cast includes Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Randhir Kapoor, Yogita Bali, Rehman, Anwar Hussain, Indrani Mukherjee, Jeevan, Roopesh Kumar, Sonia Sahani, Hari Shivdasani, Dev Kumar, Durga Khote, Satyajit, Tuntun, Sunder, Bhagwan, Hercules and Keshto Mukherjee. The lyrics of this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant – Pyarelal composed the music. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Shailendra Singh gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Story of this movie is written by Prayag Raj. Its screenplay and dialogues are written by Salim-Javed. This movie was edited by Kamlakar. It was passed by Censor Board on 08.03.1977.

 I remember watching this movie in my childhood (may be with my parents), and almost all of its songs have remained in my memory since then. The movie has total seven songs in it. And I think that all its songs are nice hummable songs though only one song from this movie make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ that year in 1977 and the song was – “Bure Kaam Ka Bura Natija, Kyun Bhai Chacha, Haan Bhatija”.

However, today’s song is closer to my heart and very nostalgic for me. Randhir Kapoor is lip syncing for Shailendra Singh’s voice and we can see Yogita Bali, Roopesh Kumar, Rehman and others in the picturisation of this song.

In the video version of this song there are only two stanzas whereas the audio that I had taken from online sources seven-eight years back is having three stanzas. Both versions are provided with the song.

Today (1 january 2018) happens to be the first day of the week, month as well as the year. So, it is just a perfect day to make new year resolutions and stick to them. 🙂 Most of these resolutions typically fail to last for more than the first few days of the year.

We too have some new year resolutions every year and we often do better than most such NYRs. Last year, I had resolved that we will post one “debutant” movie song and one “YIPPEE” movie songs. I managed to live up to this resolution of one “debutant movie” for the first 40 days of the year. I managed to follow the resulutions of one “YIPPEE” movie daily for four months and this streak got broken on 6 may 2017, after 125 days !

One should not give excuse for failing to live up to the resolutions for longer than that. The fact that I managed to live upto my resolutions for this long means that I am more determined and motivated than majority of new year resolutioners. I may have mentioned in the past that one of my my longest resolutions that I have that I have been following without interruption is waking up early in the morning and walking, irrespective of cold, fog, rain etc. I have been following it without fil for more than two years.

The blog by now has covered songs from 3777 movies. Searching for as yet unrepresented movies is being increasingly difficult because the as yet unrepresented movies are rare movies and their songs are difficult to come by. Every day I spend considerable time searching for songs from as yet unrepresented movies. discovering songs from such movies is becoming a tall order. That is why this resolution could not remain a continuous resolution beyond forty days.

We have so far covered all songs for 1033 movies. In other words, 27 % of all the movies represented in the blog have already been YIPPEED. It is not a small feat. The songs of these 1033 movies add up to nearly 7000 songs.

In 2017, 170 movies got YIPPEED. So after the 125 days uninterrupted streak was broken, movies got YIPPEED at a leisurely pace of one movie per week for the rest of the year.

A major reason why it was difficult to have one YIPPEE movie daily after 125 days was that the final one or two songs of many movies are elusive. Every day I spend considerable time searching for these elusive songs.

So, I end up spending good amount of time searching for “debutant” movie songs as well as “YIPPEE” songs. This reflects in the blog clocking less number of songs daily unlike in the previous years. The year 2017 saw 1102 songs getting covered at a rate of 3 songs per day, which is a steep fall from the previous years when the blog used to cover more than 2000 songs in a year.

The overall blog strike rate is still over four songs a day though. Today (1 january 2018) is the 3454th day for the blog. This post is post number 13852, and so the present blog strike rate is 4.011 songs per day. There was a time when this stood at 4.62 songs per day.

My new year resolution is that I will post at least one debutant song and one YIPPEE song on the first day of the year, viz today. 🙂 No guarantee from tomorrow onwards. 🙂

Here is the first YIPPEE movie of the year 2018. This movie is ‘Mad Bhare Nain’ (1955). It was produced by RL Anand and directed by Hem Chundar for Fortune Films, Bombay. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Bina Rai, David, Yashodhara Katju, Badri Prasad, Mishra, Durga Khote, Nazir Hussain, Achala Sachdev, Sarita, Bhupendar Kapoor, etc in it with Sundar billed in a guest appearance.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. This eighth and final song from the movie is an extremely elusive song, as can be expected.

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by SD Burman.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on Kishore Kumar and Bina Rai. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

The song has certain words that I have not been able to get. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, “Mad Bhare Nain”(1955) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy New Year 2018.

With this post, the blog now carries 700 songs by Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

The story of Laxmikant Pyaarelal reads like a dream rags-to-riches story. But it is also a story of hard work and persistent effort. Laxmikant, the senior partner in the team, was three years elder to Pyaarelal. Interestingly, both were born on 3rd of the month, Laxmikant in November and Pyaarelal in September. Pyaarelal is the son of the renowned musician Ram Prasad Sharma. Although active in the film industry since the latter part of 1930s, Ram Prasad did some films independently from 1947 to 1950. Not adept with commercial acumen, his financial status was poor most of his life. Pyaarelal, his eldest son, had to start working as a musician in recording studios at the age of 12, to support his family. The story of Laxmikant’s childhood is even more depressing. He was raised in the slums of Vile Parle in Bombay. His father passed away when he was just a toddler. A friend of his father supported him and guided him towards learning music. With time, his talent shone through, and he too started working as a musician in the film industry.

Remembering Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on the 19th anniversary of his passing away today (25th May).
