Missing Films of 1960s – 58
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1966 and 1967 appears to be very fertile years, as far as discovering obscure films and songs is concerned. I start searching for the films from these years, and I continue finding films and songs that seem to have been lost in time. A good number of them have already appeared online in one form or another. But there is still a good set that seem to be as yet unavailable online.

Today’s film – ‘Sheba And Hercules’ from 1967, is one of them. After some earlier comments from some readers on the blog and also some followers on YouTube, which corrected my statement about the song being posted for the first time, I try to be more cautious, and apply more effort to search the song before posting. So for this song today, I searched using many different options, but I am not able to trace any song of this film online. But I do not claim that the song is making a debut online, because I have been held in error of such statements before. So I will say that as far as my searches could show, I did not find this film and this song online as yet.

The name of the film itself indicates an obscure and a lost film. As dear Arun ji has also noted in one of his articles earlier, we can depend on the producers of Hindi films to create links across histories and across geographies; even to the extent of combining factual history and fictional characters. This endeavor to connect and to integrate disparate persona, events and aeons, is really ‘commendable’ – these producers and these films are working towards not just national integration, but also international integration. These producers deserve a big applause for their effort. 🙂

Case in point is this film. I am going by the title – since I have no clue as to the content and the storyline of the film. Hercules is a Roman God whose stories are part of the Roman Mythology. Incidentally, in Greek mythology also, a similar Hero/God appears, with a slightly altered name – Heracles. There are many similarities in the stories of these two, across these two cultures.

Queen Sheba is very much a historical persona, whose details are found in Biblical history, and from there connects are found in Jewish and Islamic history also. There is archaeological evidence that also supports this historical records. Sheba was the Queen of the kingdom of Saba – area in the southern Arabic peninsula that is current day Yemen. Her historical record is contemporaneous with King Solomon, who was the king of Israel in circa 970-931 BC. There is a detailed record of Queen Sheba’s visit to Israel, accompanied by a grand retinue, and of bringing many gifts of spices, dry fruits and other items, loaded on camels. The Jewish history records that the spices brought by Queen Sheba were of the type never seen and used before in Israel. There is a record of their conversations, in which Sheba asks many questions from Solomon, who is considered to be the wisest man who ever lived on this earth. After being satisfied with the answers she receives, she returns to her lands. Historians have recorded this visit as one of the earliest examples of a trade and cultural exchange delegation going from one nation to another.

But I digress. The point I am trying to arrive at is the these two mythological / historical personae – Hercules and Sheba – could never have possibly been contemporaneous in person. However, still, the producers of Hindi films have found a happy meeting ground for these two, in the film titled ‘Sheba And Hercules’. I would request other readers and friends to please add some information about the storyline of this film.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of Meena Films, Bombay and is directed by BS Chaudhry. The star cast includes Randhawa, Vijaya Chaudhary, Indira, Heeralal, Kamal Mehra, Tuntun, Rajan Kapoor, Trilok Singh, and Saudagar Singh amongst others. Geet Kosh tells us that there are six songs in this film. All songs have been written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and the music is by a gentleman named Chandan. Now this is a name that I have not encountered before. As I tried to look through the Geet Kosh, I am not able to locate any other reference to this name as a music director. Quite likely, this person, as many others who have given music in one or two films, would probably have been an assistant music director, and then got a chance to try his hand as an independent artist. But after one outing, did not get any more work in the industry.

The singing voice in this song is of Krishna Kalle. This is a song of ‘expression of love’, in which the lady is expressing her magnanimity that she is a benefactor, and that as a favor unto him, she has fallen in love with the gentleman to whom this song is being addressed. Now that is quite a thought. 🙂

So with this song, the film ‘Sheba And Hercules’ makes a debut on our blog. And so does the music director Chandan. I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film, and the music director.

Song – Jaao Ji Tum Pe Hum Merbaan Ho Gaye  (Sheba And Hercules) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Chandan

Blog Day : 3487 Post No. : 14004

As I am searching for a song to make the debut post for today, my mind goes to check the anniversaries page, and I find that today is the anniversary of passing away of Pt Shivram. This gives me an impetus and I start exploring the films for which Pt Shivram has composed the music. After going thru the list of his films, as given in the Geet Kosh, I find that although his work in Hindi cinema is confined to about 23 films, there still are some of his films that are not yet represented on our blog. So I search thru his pending films, and I come across this obscure film, albeit from a major banner.

The film is ‘Phool Aur Kaliyan’ from 1960, and it is produced by V Shantaram for his own banner – Rajkamal Kala Mandir. From the descriptions that I am able to locate, this is a children’s film. The unique distinction that this film carries is that it is the first children’s film to receive the National Award in the then newly created category of children’s films.

The director of the film is Ram Gabale. The songs of this film are penned by Bharat Vyas, and the music, yes, is by Pt Shivram. The list of actors as per the Geet Kosh, reads like – Radhika, Uma Dutt, Shaamlal, Daljeet, Bhagwan, Kiran, P N Bali, Somdutt, Moti Bai, R Khanna, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Rani, Premlata, and George.

My plan was to also provide a brief bio sketch of Pt Shivram. As I scouted the net for gathering information, I came across a blog post by Aditya Pant ji, on his blog ‘Parwaaz e Khwaahish’. This blog post is dedicated to Pt Shivram. As I read through this blog, and checked out the reference materials listed, I find that I could not have done anything more or any better a job that this. I would encourage all readers to please also visit this blog (https://urgetofly.blogspot.in/2015/12/remembering-pandit-shivram-krishna.html), and read this very well researched and equally well written biosketch.

The interesting thing is about the singing voices. For this film, Pt Shivram has got three of the four songs in the film, to be sung by the daughters of V Shantaram – Madhura and Charusheela. This particular song is sung by Madhura Shantaram.

The song is a very wonderful and a very poignant one, albeit a very inspirational song. Keeping in with the spirit of the film being a children’s film, this song is a song of encouragement and motivation. It tells about the difficulties that one is bound to face in life. But with patience and faith, one will surely overcome all such difficulties. A superb song for children.

With this post, now the 1960 film ‘Phool Aur Kaliyan’ makes its debut on our blog.

 

Song – Mann Re Mat Ro, Kal Aayega Tera Savera  (Phool Aur Kaliyan) (1960) Singer – Madhura Shantaram, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Pt Shivram

Lyrics

mann re

kal aayega tera savera
mann re

kal aayega tera savera
mann re. . .

aas ka taar
bada naazuk hai
aas ka taar
bada naazuk hai
nahin tootne dena. . .
peer jagat ki sehna
dheeraj nahin chhootne dena
mann re
mat ro
kal aayega tera savera
mann re
mat ro
kal aayega tera savera
mann re. . .

is jeevan mein
daata ne to
is jeevan mein
daata ne to
sukh dukh dono baante
jitne phool aur kaliyaan hain
utne hi hain kaante
mann re
mat ro
kal aayega tera savera
mann re
mat ro
kal aayega tera savera
mann re. . .

aansoo ke dhaagon se pagle
aansoo ke dhaagon se pagle
bhaavon kyon seena
jeevan ek kasauti hai
tu hanste hanste jeena
mann re
mat ro
kal aayega tera savera
mann re
mat ro
kal aayega tera savera
mann re. . .

Mukesh and his co-singers – 4
————————————————

A song recorded and composed by Roshan in 1950, was the topic of discussion on a TV program nearly 5 decades later. The singer (judge on the show) was requested by none other than Anil Biswas, to sing a few lines of the famous song. The specific reference was to the word “ib” in the song “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re Ib Kyaa Hoga” from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950). She rendered the song in an effortless manner without any background music. It is difficult to believe that she could sing so well at the spur of the moment.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 32

hazaaron khwaahishen aisi
ke har khwaahish pe dam nikle
bahut nikle mere armaan
magar phir bhi kam nikle

roz aise hi hota hai, it happens almost every day. Every day, there is a song that comes to mind, or a song that someone reminds me of, or a ‘new’ old song that I get to hear – a song that is not yet on the blog, or maybe not yet online even. There is an immediate urge, a rush to sit down at my desk and finger type a new post on my laptop. And also upload it online, if need be. Many a time I even start it. The melody continues to hum in the mind. Always overlaid on to another melody that is now a fixture in the backdrop, a melody that you have heard me mention often in my writings – ye hansta hua kaarvan zindagi ka na poochho chala hai kidhar

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 4 # Suresh Rajvanshi -1

The journey through the HFGK is  getting more excited and thrilling day by day, though so far I have been able to glance through only the few preliminary years of this decade 1971-1980.  And I am realizing that apart from ‘Bhoole Bisre Geet’ we do also have some ‘Bhoole Bisre Artists’, like the singer of this song that is being presented today.

Almost every person has a Photo Album,with his photos of childhood,marriage,office,friends,relatives etc. Human nature is such that we wish to capture the ” FIRSTS ” in our life through memories and photographs. Your First close friend, first day of married life,first day of Job etc. In olden days, this was not a routine, so many senior citizen do not have their childhood or schooldays photos. This shortcoming is well compensated now, with photos of sons, grandsons etc. Son’s First Birthday or his First walk etc are carefully recorded and they serves as source of pleasure whenever browse through them.

The general memory of the 1969 movie, Saat Hindustaani, is linked to the fact that it was the debut movie for Amitabh Bachhan. However, in my mind, this movie is more associated with the writer director Khwaja Ahmed Abbas or KA Abbas. The Wikipeadia page on Abbas Saab contains very interesting information about this personality, e.g. fact like his family tree is traced back to Ayub Ansari, a close associate of Prophet Mohammed, and that his grandfather was one of the prominent soldiers in the 1857 uprising against the Britishers and a martyr, sentenced to be blown on a cannon, and that Abbas Saab is the great great great grandfather of Shahid Kapoor. Besides these familial facts, Abbas Saab has been a prolific writer and journalist, and a noted story writer and film maker in Hindi Cinema. His column ‘Last Page’ in ‘Blitz’, the Bombay based newspaper, ran from 1935 to 1987, the longest running column in the history of Indian journalism. He wrote 73 books in Hindi, Urdu and English, and is considered as one of the premier Urdu short story writers of the 20th century.
