Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 87
———————————————————————————–

Welcome all to the ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge’ series where today we will have a song after a gap of almost a month. Last song posted under the ‘challenge’ was on 25.09.2020.

We missed some opportunities, but today hopefully we will have two songs in this challenge.

If we see the songs posted ten years back on this day (20.10.2010), we had only three posts on that day as given below;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Aaj mere naseeb ne mujhko rulaa rulaa diyaa Halchal-1951 All songs covered
Bhajan binaa baawre Rooplekha-1962 03 songs posted
Ham to muhabaat karegaa Dilli Ka Thug-1958 05 songs posted

So, one can see that the rate of posting had come down to averaging three posts a day unlike what it was during August’2010 and Septemeber’2010 where we saw the blog maintaining average six posts per day.

In this current month of October’2020 so far we have seen forty-seven posts till 19.10.2020 (i.e. averaging just little over two posts per day).

So, I was curious to check how the blog had been doing in the month of ‘October’ till now and here we have the details;

SNo. Month-Year Total no of posts Average per day
01 Oct’2008 76 2.45
02 Oct’2009 100 3.22
03 Oct’2010 109 3.52
04 Oct’2011 191 6.16
05 Oct’2012 168 5.42
06 Oct’2013 122 3.93
07 Oct’2014 108 3.48
08 Oct’2015 82 2.64
09 Oct’2016 93 3.00
10 Oct’2017 64 2.06
11 Oct’2018 61 1.97
12 Oct’2019 43 1.38

We can from the above details that in the current month the blog is still maintaining a better ‘run-rate’ (post-rate 😊) and we yesterday it saw as many as five posts occurring over the day.

Coming back to the today’s movies, today we have two movies viz. “Dilli Ka Thug-1958” and “Rooplekha-1962” eligible for posting a song under the ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge-2010-2020’

I am presenting a song from ‘Dilli Ka Thug-1958’.

This movie was directed by S.D. Narang for ‘New Oriental Pictures, Bombay’.

It had Kishore Kumar, Nutan, Smriti Biswas, Amar, Madan Puri, Iftekhar, Krishnakant, Protima Devi, Ramlal, Mirajkar, Kathana, Amrit Rana, Heera, Kumud Tripathi, Shakuntala, Master Raj, Tun Tun, Ratan Gaurang, Bela Parmanik, Haroon, A.K. Tiwari, Tamoa, Madan Khanna, Nirula, Rajkumar, P. Mukherjee, Brahm Bharadwaj, Tanveer, Uma Dutt, Mouji and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.11.1958. The movie was again re-certified with some parts of the movie in colours on 15.09.1959.

This movie had total eight songs composed by Ravi written by three lyricists Shailendra, S.H. Bihari and Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Let us have a look (this time a little differently) on this movies’ songs as they appear on the movie page in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) which generally are in order of their appearance on the screen as mentioned in HFGK.
The songs posted so far have been given with their links and the lyricist for each song and its date of posting (wherever the song is posted on the blog) is also given.

“Khaandaan” (1965)was produced by Vasu Menon and directed by A Bhim Singh for Vasu Films, Madras. The movir had Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Pran, Sudesh Kumar, Manmohan Krishna, Mohan Choti, Om Prakash, Ravikant, Arundev, Mumtaz, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lalita Pawar, Helen, Jeewankala etc in it.

This archtypical “social” movie had the usual fare typical of movies made in the South.

“Khaandaan”(1965) had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details:-

Here is the eighth and final song from “Khandaan”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a synchronised stage dance performance song on Helen and Jeewankala. Their energetic dance performance is bound to recharge the spirits of the watchers even today, 55 years after this video was first witnessed by moviegoers in moviehalls. Watching this performance made me realise that performing such dances were the secret behind the figures of these dancers. 🙂

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, all the eight songs of “Khandaan”(1965) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 106 # Tribute to Music Director Shankar #
——————————————————————————————–

Today 15th October is (15.10.1922) is ninety-eighth Birth Anniversary of the genius music director Shankar Singh Raghuvanshi or known popularly as Shankar of Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

He was born on 15th October’1922 at Hyderabad Deccan in the then state of Hyderabad.
And left this mortal world at the age of sixty-four on 26th April’1986 at Bombay.

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the 1977 movie ‘Duniyaadaari’.

One beautiful song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 15th October’2012 which was ‘naao kaaghaz ki gehraa hai paani’ …

As we are all aware the golden period of Shankar-Jaikishan was already over as the HFM embarked in the decade of seventies. The lot of R.D. Burman, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Kalyanji-Anandji and many others were already producing chart burster music that was getting popular among the masses.

I would like to reproduce the ‘text’ here what Atul ji had said about Shankar-Jaikishan and the ending of their ‘era’ in his article while posting the first song of this movie ‘Duniyaadaari-1977’.

Shankar Jaikishan, the most dominant music directors during the golden era of Hindi movie music ruled the roost for two decades from 1949 to 1968 till R D Burman rose like a meteor and changed the rules of the game.

Many other developments took place during that time. One of those developments was that Jaikishan died in 1970 and that way the Shankar Jaikishan jodi was physically separated. Moreover, “Mera Naam Joker” (1970) flopped and after that Raj Kapoor made up his mind to overhaul his musical team making a clen break from his tried and trusted musical team of the past two decades.

Shankar continued to compose music under the name of Shankar Jaikishan. But the time passed, assignments from top banners gradually dried up and Shankar ended up composing music for lesser banners. His songs from mid 1970s onwards were not quite as popular as the music of his heydays.

Nevertheless, Shankar composed some memorable songs even in his second innings as a solo music director, even if they are not as well-known as the music of his earlier decades.

Today’s movie is one such movie whose songs are quite nice and were popular I think (since I have not watched this movie) and other notable movies to mention I think is ‘Sanyaasi-1975’ whose songs were heard everywhere on radio and loudspeakers. Songs of ‘Resham Ki Dori-1974’ were also nice songs if we consider them as composed by Shankar solely.

In the previous month while paying our tributes to Jaikishan on his Remembrance Day I had mentioned about the year 1971 and had wrote that; -“Shankar Jaikishan ruled the music charts in 1971 with their ‘Zindagi ek safar hai suhaana’ ranking top of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list. ”

In 1971 Shankar Jaikishan composed music for as many as seventeen movies out of 115 released movies that year. Moreover there was an un-released movie as well viz. ‘Bombay Talkie-1971’ making it a total of eighteen movies for the year for Shankar Jaikishan.

That was for 1971. Let us now have a look on the number of movies in which the name of Shankar-Jaikishan appeared as Music Director from 1972 to till 1977.
(we will again have a look on their filmography from 1978 to 1986 in future posts).

Coming back to today’s movie now ‘Duniyaadaari-1977’, it was directed by Ram Kelkar for ‘Filmnagar, Bombay’. Ram Kelkar was also the writer of this movie. It was produced by Sohanlal Kanwar. Smt Vijayalaxmi was the co-producer of this movie.

It had Nutan, Vinod Mehra, Parikshit Sahni, Bindiya Goswami, Ranjeet, Asrani, Aruna Irani and Om Prakash, with Shashikala, Kanhaiyalal, Dr Shreeram Lagoo, Helen, Sulochana, Jayshree T., Meena T., and supported by Kuljit, Birbal, Bihari, Tun Tun, S.N. Tripathi, Chandrashekhar, Karan Deewan, Bharat Bhushan, Rajan Haksar, Asha Potdar, C.S. Dubey, Sheikh, Lamba, Kamal Deep and others. Vijay Arora, Radha Saluja, Raj Mehra and Rama Vij make special appearance in this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar,

This movie had six songs written by M.G. Hashmat (two songs), Vishweshwar Sharma (two songs), and Prabha Thakur and Vithhalbhai Patel wrote one song each.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Usha Mangeshkar, Amit Kumar and Shobha Gurtu (and Anwar, Khan Saheb and Naseem Chopda as mentioned in HFGK, not mentioned in the titles of the movie)

Music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.10.1977.

Let us now enjoy today’s song … On screen Asrani and Aruna Irani are performing and lip syncing the song in the voices of Amit Kumar and Asha Bhonsle respectively.

The song was embedded deep in my subconscious memory and I had forgotten about it. It was only during last year when I was in Kenya that at some instance I broke into humming (singing could also be the correct word? 😊 ). After that I looked for its details and got to know that it is from this movie ‘Duniyaadaari-1977’.

Let us now enjoy this song and pay our tributes to the genius music director Shankar today. I hope you will enjoy today’s song …

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

(Note: – for those interested to watch this movie, it is slated for premier on ‘YouTube’ on 31.10.2020)

Aadmi ki talaash
———————————–

abhi mara nahin zindaa hai aadmi shaayad
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
badan ki andhi guphaa mein chhupa hua hogaa
badha ke haathh
har ek raushni ko gul kar do
hawaayen tez hain jhande lapet kar rakh do
jo ho sake to unn aankhon pe pattiyan kas do
na koyi paaon ki aahat
na saanson ki awaaz
daraa huaa hai woh
kuchh aur bhi na dar jaaye
badan ki andhhi guphaa se na kuchh kar jaaye
yahin kahin use dhoondho
wo aaj sadiyon baad
udaas udaas hai
khaamosh hai
akelaa hai
na jaane kab koyi pasli phadak utthe us ki
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
barh anaho to use phir libaas pehnaa do
andheri aankhon mein sooraj ki aag dehkaa do
bahut badi hai yeh basti kahin bhi dafnaa do
abhi maraa nahin
zinda hai aadmi shaayad

Duniya jise kehte hainjaadu kaa Khilona hai
Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sona hai

Nida Fazli , full name Muqtida Hasan Nida Fazli (12 October 1938 to 8 February 2016) is referring to the mesmerising charm of all things worldly and the fickle mindedness of the self, which keeps hankering after the things not gained, which may or may not be within reach.

The name ‘Nida’ means “to call”. In easy urdu /hindi it would mean “pukaar”. I had considered this name for my daughter. But I was dissuaded from this name, due to the meaning being so ambiguous. Because a call could be happy and good as the “Azaan”, or it could also be a call for attention is bad times or when one is in difficulty or desperation i.e. pukaar.

Here a song from the 1981 film “Aahistaa aahistaa” as part of for ‘dheere dheere songs’ series, written by Nida Fazli. This is a melodious composition by Khayyam. I am including ‘aahistaa aahistaa” in this series as it essentially means the same as ‘dheere dheere”.

Three songs from this movie have been covered in the blog so far :-

Kabhi kisi ko muqqammal jahaan nahin miltaa 31 july 2010
Maana teri nazar mein 9 July 2012
Jab koi khwaab chamakta hai haqeeqat ban ke 31 july 2020

Padmini Kolhapure and Kunal Kapoor are singing this song on screen. This was a complicated story, I think based on a novel, with Shammi Kapoor and Nanda being the older generation and host of other actors in the cast.

Here is a duet by Asha Bhonsle and Anwar, as a tribute to Poet Nida Fazli on his birth anniversary.

“Aanbaan”(1956) was produced and directed by D D Kashyap for Kashyap Productions, Bombay. This costi=ume drama movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Usha Kiran, Ajit, Mahipal, Pran, Ulhas, Niranjan Sharma, Manmohan Krishna, Baij Sharma, Parvati devi, Maya devi, Fazal, Shree Bhagwan, Nazeer etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Aanbaan”(1956) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyicist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of this song is available. This movie had two female singers. Asha Bhonsle had sung four songs whereas Lata Mangeshkar has sung three. So it is difficult to guess who sang for which actress. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

“Baaraati” (1954) was directed by J K Nanda for Kardar Productions, Bombay. The movie had Chand Usmani, Peace Kanwal, Agha, Om Prakash, Sham Kumar, Leela Mishra, Baby Sheela, Darpan, Johny Walker, abbas, Rajan KHaksar, Heera Sawant, Agha Miraz, Kathana, Ameer Ali, Agha Mirza etc. in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been discussed in the past. Here are their details:-

Blog post number Song Date
1742 Kis naam se pukaaroon kyaa naam hai tumhaara 11 August 2009
2714 Kahin door koyaliyaa gaaye re 2 August 2010
3219 Aa phir se mere pyaar ki kismat sanwaar de 17 November 2010

15775 Saari raat jaage laage jo tose nainwaa 2 August 2020
15875 Dhak dhak dhak dhak kare dil 9 September 2020

Here is the eighth and final song from “Baaraati”(1954). This song is sung by S Balbir, Asha Bhonsle and chorus. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

It uis a very long song (over seven minutes long). It is picturised as a “fair” (mela) song. I am unable to identify most actors seen in the picturisation. I feel that a lady seen dancing towards the end of the picturisaation could be Sheila Vaz, though her name does not figure in the credits. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identigfy her as well as others seen in the picturisation.

I have not been able to get the lyrics right to my satisfaction, especially in the parts with Punjabi words. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics as applicable.

With this song, all the songs of “Baaraati”(1954) have been covered in the blog and this movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

06/10/2020 – 74th birth anniversary of Vinod Khanna
——————————————————————————-

This duet song by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhonsle is one more song from the 80’s and radio days. This remained in the memory as a very good song from the film ‘Insaan” 1982, starring Vinod Khanna, Jeetendra and Reena Roy. I looked up this song again a few days ago for including in the Rafi series, as there are no duets in the series. But I am not including it there, instead posting it as a anniversary post for Vinod Khanna. The song is sung on screen by Vinod Khanna and Reena Roy.

This is the trivia I found about the song, inadvertently.
“Saathiya Tu Mere Sapnon Ka Meet Hai – This song was based on the 1977 British hit “Angelo” by the pop band Brotherhood of Man.”

I was not looking to add to the short series of inspired/copied songs. But since this falls in the category it is added in the series as the 5th song. There is only one more song in the series, barring any more inadvertent incidents.

Seeing the filmography of Vinod Khanna, his career started with films “Man ka Meet” and “Nateeja” in 1969. He graduated from bit roles to villan’s role in “Aan Milo Sajana” and small character in Manoj Kumar’s “Purab Paschhim” in 1970. Then came some of those critically acclaimed films like “Reshma aur Shera”, “Mere Apne” in 1971. He was noticed in both these films, especially “Mere Apne” with the main hero there. In “Mera Gaon Mera desh”(1971), he enacted the role of villain “Jabbar Singh”, which was later rehashed in “Sholay” as “Gabbar Singh”.

In “Achaanak” (1973), a movie directed by Gulzar he played an army officer, where he kills his wife and friend, using the methods learnt in training for killing the enemies, than uses the same training to evade arrest. I have seen this movie on TV, but don’t remember how it ends. He gets medals and accolades for same thing in a war, and a conviction for killing his unfaithful wife and deceitful friend. The dilemma was the basis of the film’s story. This is also a once seen, never forgotten sort of film. I would call it the most important film of Vinod Khanna’s film career.

The year 1974 brings more important films like “Imtehaan” and ‘Haathh ki safai”. Major hits start with multi-starrer “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977), many more films later. Somewhere along the way, Vinod Khanna seems to have been typecast in the role of Daaku in many films, even as a hero.

Come 1980 and there were not so hit “The Burning Train” and super hit “Qurbani”. Feroz Khan’s “Qurbani”, had Vinod Khanna in the meaty title role, the one doing sacrifice.

I almost missed “Muqaddar ka Sikandar” (1978), as it is absent in the list of films at imdb. A few more multi starrters like “Kudrat”(1981) and “Rajput”(1982) later he was still short of a superstar status. Then came the Osho twist in the story and he left everything to join the aashram. He was out of the industry for almost 5 years. He made a very impressive comeback in 1987 with excellent hero oriented films like “Insaaf” and “Satyamev Jayate”. He continued working in many films for three decades till his death in 2017.

He had a stint in politics too like Amitabh Bachchan, was an MP from Punjab.

Some film buffs and Vinod Khanna fans contend that had he not got involved in “Osho” and left the industry at a crucial juncture, his career graph would have been very different. These are of course conjectures, and we will never know what could have been.

So here is the song from “Insaan”, composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and written by Anand Bakshi, as a tribute to Vinod Khanna on his 74th birth anniversary.

Hullo Atuldom

Some songs keep playing in our mind as if on loop. This I had said in one of my previous posts. Today’s song is one such.
I saw it consciously a number of times in the last few years. Consciously means I may have seen it in the ’70s or ’80s when these movies were aired on the doordarshan but I was not old enough to appreciate them or the meaning of their lyrics. But now on repeat viewing of the movie I am getting wiser. I had filed away (mentally) that this needs to be on the blog. So here it is.

“Sadhu Aur Shaitaan” a 1968 release had 4 songs all written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmi-Pyare were the music directors. Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Manna Dey and Mohd. Rafi were the playback singers.

Only one song has been posted on the blog. That one had Mehmood replaying his “hum kale hain toh kya hua” character. We had Mehmood mouthing the initial part of “Chunia, ari kidhar hai ri tu? Mere dil ki rani. Mere nawaason ki naani. aa gaya hoon main. arre dekh le main aa gaya permission leko”.

Today’s song has him giving gyaan about the importance of knowing one’s mother tongue in addition to learning “A B C D”. We should remember that this was a movie which came at a time when we had enough students opting for schools which were not essentially English medium. We should also remember that all those who trained in non-English medium schools were no less intelligent and we have many pioneers in various fields from those students too. I know I will be stirring a hornet’s nest if I talk about which is a better language for educating the masses of the country.

My personal feeling is that education should be in a language where in the parents also understand what the child is learning so that they are able to clarify doubts that the child has as he is studying. People may feel that my thoughts are very old fashioned but…..

Today happens to be the birth anniversary of Mehmood who would have been 88. He knew how to bring a smile on the viewer’s face, how to tickle their funny bone. He was the son of actor/dancer Mumtaz Ali and brother of dancer Minu Mumtaz (about whom our Sadanandji has written in his this post). His brother Anwar Ali was also an actor who paired with Mehmood in “Bombay To Goa” as Rajesh to Mehmood’s Khanna.

Mehmood took up odd jobs at a rather young age to help look after his large family which had 7 siblings. He decided to try acting to support his family once he married and had his first son and had his first break in “C.I.D” with a small role of the killer. He had other small unnoticed roles in “Do Bigha Zameen” “Pyaasa” etc. His innings in Bollywood was peppered with comic roles that were an essential part of the story and we often saw him drill sense into older characters towards the end of the movie.

I saw a part of “Meri bhabhi” (1969) this morning where he was doing just that as Shambu. But he was a class apart when he turned to movie making and gave us classics like “Bhoot Bungla”, “Padosan”, “Bombay To Goa” and the most poignant, message carrying of them all “Kunwara Baap”. His last movie released in 1996 “Dushman Duniya Ka” which he directed and Jeetendra headed the cast. It is interesting to note that Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan had special appearances in it.

Remembering the actor, producer, director Mehmood with this song sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle.

Today’s song is from the film Husn ka chor-53.

The film was made by Basant Pictures owned by Homi Wadia. He was the Producer, but surprisingly the film was directed by his elder brother J.B.H.Wadia (13-1-1901 to 4-1-1986 ). JBH had also written its story, screenplay and dialogues too. Another surprise was that this film was a Costume/action film. The brothers had separated in 1942 on the issue of Wadia Movietone continuing making stunt films or to start making social films. JBH wanted to make social films and Homi Wadia (22-5-1911 to 10-12-2004) advocated for continuance of stunt films. He separated from JBH and started his own Basant Pictures. The third surprise was that for the first (and the last) time JBH wrote part of the lyrics of one song in this film. Today’s song is that song.

The cast of the film was Usha Kiran, Mahipal, Brij Mohan (B.M.Vyas), Azeem Dalpat, Sardar Mansoor, Agha Shapoor, Bismilla etc.etc. The wadias, known for fantasy and stunt films, always made new stories by rehashing old stories from Arabian Nights. This was also one such movie. I had seen this film.

The lead pair was Mahipal and Usha Kiron. one speciality of Wadias was that in their films, the credits list used to be very lengthy ,as they were keen on writing almost every small actor’s names also.

Qamar(Mahipal) was a compulsive thief.Once he steals Princess Husn’s(Usha Kiran) jewels,but he is so dazed by her beauty and innocence that he returns her jewels.When several foreign Princes come to propose to her,he also goes there by disguising as a prince.Husn selects him,but the secret is revealed by Nadira(Lalita kumari),a dancer who loves Qamar.The king could not digest the selection by Husn. Qamar is put in Jail, from where he is rescued by Nadira and friends.One Faqir tells Qamar to become a real prince to win Husn.
Qamar sets out on a magic flying horse to meet Moon Fairy to get the Magic wish bowl.The Moon fairy is rescued by him from the custody of evil genie by killing the genie.

Meanwhile Husn’s father faces mutiny and death if Husn is not married to the Vazir. Qamar arrives on a flying carpet and takes away Husn to the Moon.
The End.

In the last scene this line is Flashed ” Heaven dwells in pure Hearts “.

It was great fun to watch such types of movies.The audience also participated in the ongoings on the screen by appropriately scolding, encouraging or clapping loudly.There was no need to think logically. It was pure entertainment, and a timepass.

Actor Brij Mohan aka B.M.Vyas was one artiste who started as a singer, became a drama actor and then ended up as a villain, character actor. B.M.Vyas was born as Brijmohan Vyas on Vijayadashami (22 October) day of 1920 in Churu, Rajasthan. He is the younger brother of the well-known poet and lyricist, Bharat Vyas. He was married at the age of 17 when his wife, Jamna was just 11. They had 71 years of marital bliss before Jamna passed away in 2008. They had six daughters and a son. After acting in over 200 films in various languages, Vyas quit acting in the early 1990s. Then he moved to his residence in Kalyan. Having seen various shades of life, Vyas lived a contented life with his children and grandchildren.

On 15 January, 1944, actor Prithviraj Kapoor realised his dream when Prithvi Theatre, his own drama company came into being. Mahakavi Kalidas’ classic Shakuntala was chosen to be their first performance. The play’s cast included Uzra Mumtaz (younger sister of Zohra Segal) to play Shakuntala, Prithviraj Kapoor to play Dhushyant, K N Singh was cast as Rishi Kanva, Shakuntala’s foster father, Sati Devi (Bijoya Ray’s sister, Ruma Guha Thakurta’s mother) as Gautami, caretaker of Kanva Ashram who raises Shakuntala, and Hemavati (Daya Kishan Sapru’s wife) to play Shakuntala’s friend Priyamvada, among others. A young, 24 years old, B M Vyas was recruited as a singer by the drama company to sing songs in their play at a monthly salary of 75 Rupees.

Once when rehearsals for their maiden show were in progress and Vyas was done with his singing rehearsals, he was watching rehearsals of the cast. One of his songs for the play was “Bitiya Rani Kahan Kahan Tapasvi Log, Milna Julna Rehgaya Nadi Naav Sanjog”. The cast was rehearsing for a scene which needed Rishi Kanva to recite a mantra in Sanskrit, but actor K N Singh was having trouble reciting it. Prithviraj was trying to help him but was also faltering in saying it perfectly. Vyas , an expert in Hindi and Sanskrit, having immense knowledge of Ved Mantra was witnessing the proceedings for two days. It was possibly the blessing of Goddess Saraswati that inspired him to say the mantra aloud. On hearing him intone the mantra with such Brahminical precision, Prithviraj was very impressed and asked him to help K N Singh in saying the mantra correctly. But soon K N Singh informed Prithviraj ji that he will not be able to speak Devbhasha (Sanskrit) and that he should look for another artiste for the role. Prithviraj asked Prithvi Theatre’s manager Ramesh Saigal to approach Vyas for the role. Vyas , who had already acted in a Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana earlier, readily agreed and stepped into the role and thus started his journey as an actor.

While the rehearsals were still on, Vyas suffered a personal tragedy and had to go back home in Bikaner, Rajasthan. There he fell sick with typhoid. Here rehearsals were in full swing as the play was to premiere on 9 March, 1945 at the Royal Opera House. The final date was about a month away so Prithviraj asked him to come back as soon as possible. Vyas returned with his wife though he was still unwell. On the day he resumed his rehearsals he couldn’t do much due to frequent blackouts. The medication he was on, did not seem to help him much. He remembers the doctor from Kalbadevi who treated him for free; with his medication, Vyas ji’s health improved considerably in just three days.

The final round of rehearsals was done and finally the day of Prithvi Theatre’s first play to be staged, arrived. For the first performance of Shakuntala, many known names of the film industry were present at Royal Opera House. In the scene where Rishi Kanva makes an entry on stage he was required to raise his hands for blessing but Vyas was still weak and his hands started shaking. He tried a lot to control them but to no avail. He then remembered that he had seen many old people whose hands and head would involuntarily shake, so he started to shake his head too. The end result was so effective that during the play’s interval Prithviraj came and hugged him. He asked him how he developed that body language, Vyas told him about his genuine problem. Prithiviraj told him that he did a wonderful job and should continue with the same every time the play was staged.

Vyas had a long association with Prithvi Theatre, from 1944 to 1955. During this period he toured with the group to various cities and got an opportunity to showcase his singing and acting skills in various plays like – Deewar, Pathan, Aahuthi, Gaddar, Kalaakar, etc. The dedication with which this iconic actor prepared for his roles can be observed from the fact that he could mouth dialogs from plays he participated in over six decades ago.

Vyas was interested in music since childhood. He is a self-taught singer. They had a Harmonium at home which Vyas learnt to play on his own. He liked to be around musically inclined people. He would listen carefully and learn. He fondly remembers the blind musician from his home town who would give him a free hand to play the various musical instruments he had. He never really had a Guru he could learn from but he says he learnt the art of teaching singing. He gave music tuitions when he was in Bikaner before moving to Mumbai.

In the early 1940s Bharat Vyas called his younger brother to Mumbai. Soon Vyas ji got the opportunity to act and sing as many as twenty songs for the Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana written by Bharat. Music Director Naushad Sahab’s assistant Ghulam Muhammad who hailed from Rajasthan was very impressed when he heard Vyas’s voice in the play. He took him to meet Naushad Sahab who was working on the soundtrack of the film Pehle Aap (1944). Vyas got an opportunity to sing a group song “Hindustan Ke Hum Hain, Hindustan Hamara; Hindu Muslim Dono Ki Aakhon Ka Tara” with established singers G. M. Durrani and Shyam Kumar along with a new singer Mohammed Rafi. Since this song was supposed to be sung by soldiers on screen, Vyas and Rafi Sahab had to wear heavy boots and do a rhythmic march while singing to give an effect of an army troop. Such effects could not be added to a song with the technology available then; it all had to be done in real time. However the first ever song Vyas sang for a film was “Alakh Niranjan, Jai Jai Jai Manaranjan” from Bhartrihari (1944) which was picturized on Arun Ahuja (Govinda’s father).

After Vyas joined Prithvi Theatre as a singer, he had to do regular riyaz at home. A music teacher who often heard him sing once asked if he would be willing to give music tuitions. Since his monthly salary was 75 Rupees then, Vyas agreed as this would give him additional income. The teacher took him to meet Jaichand Kapoor and soon Vyas started giving music tuitions to his elder son, Brijmohan. However his younger brother seemed more inclined and started learning music from Vyas. This youngster was none other than our legendary playback singer, Mahendra Kapoor who always acknowledged that B M Vyas was his first Guru.

Vyas gave playback in four films – Bhartrihari (1944, MD: Khemchand Prakash), Pehle Aap (1944, MD: Naushad), Maharana Pratap (1946, MD: Ram Ganguli) and Naulakha Haar (MD: R C Boral) before destiny took him on a different path. He remembers meeting Rafi Sahab years later who sweetly said “Pandit ji you changed our line (singing)” to which Vyas admitted that he did not see much of a future for himself in singing and hence switched to acting.

After Prithvi Theatre’s first play Shakuntala was staged, Devika Rani (owner of Bombay Talkies) was keen to know who played Rishi Kanva. When she saw the 24 yrs old Vyas she was surprised, she never expected to see such a young man. She offered him a role in a Bombay Talkies film to be directed by actor Jairaj but the film was never made.

When Ramesh Saigal moved away from Prithvi Theatre, he joined Chetan Anand’s company India Pictures as Production Manager. They were working on their next film Neecha Nagar (1946) when Ramesh Saigal offered Vyas a small role (protagonist’s elder brother) in the film. Prithvi Theatre never laid any restrictions on their actors; they could take outside work while working in their plays. Vyas was eager to face the camera and accepted the role with open arms. He is credited as ‘Vyas ji’s in this film. Soon he played a small role in Raj Kapoor‘s Aag (1948) where he is credited as ‘Brijmohan’. But the role that gave him recognition in the film industry was in Barsaat (1949) where he played actress Nargis’ father. For this film he is credited as ‘B. M. Vyas’. Thus Vyas ji’s film career took off and he never looked back.

He has had a long and very successful career of more than four decades and has been part of many memorable classics. He has always been a character artist who started his career with portraying old characters. His last film most probably was Maa (1991).Vyas was very keen to work with the great filmmaker V Shantaram and approached him for work. Shantaram was planning Do Aankhen Barah Haath (1957) and was busy casting actors to play six prisoners in the film. He did not tell him that he is Bharat’s younger brother who was the lyricist of the film. When Vyas approached him, Shantaram was initially a bit apprehensive due to his height but soon cast him as one of the prisoners, Jalia Nai. They had a month-long schedule in Kolhapur. When the reels were sent to Rajkamal Studios for processing, it was found that due to dirt particles on the lens there were lines all across the frame in all the reels and the whole month’s hard work had gone to waste. They had to reshoot the entire thing. Vyas had a tough time managing schedules due to this re-shoot as he had other films in hand too. My favourite scene of this film is where Jalia comes with an intention to kill the Jailor played by Shantaram himself. That scene showcases Vyas ji’s ability as a performer, his entire body language, facial expressions, use of eyes and voice in this scene is a class act, beyond words.

About the classic scene from Sampoorna Ramayan (1961) Vyas said when he was offered the role of Ravan he was thrilled, being Shastri in Sanskrit he had read so much about this mythological character. Hence he was really keen to play the part but Ravan is expected to have a powerful physique while Vyas ji had a lean frame. To overcome this hurdle he got cotton padded clothing made for the role to look fuller. The rising temperature due to lights in addition to studio heat, he would sweat profusely in those cotton padded cloths but he did not let it hinder his performance. That innovative scene where Ravan is interacting with his nine heads was a collective brainchild of Babubhai Mistry and Homi Wadia. Vyas had to enact from a fixed position in front of a stationary camera for fifteen days but the end result was very effective.

On being asked about the most memorable and satisfying moment from his entire career Vyas narrated this incident. Prithvi Theatre’s play Gaddar was being staged in which he was playing the role of Maulana. Once filmmaker Kidar Sharma came to see the play, and was very impressed with his dialog delivery in Urdu. He asked Vyas to meet him. Sharma was working on his next film Shokhian (1951) and was looking for an actor to play the role of Baba Ghani. He gave Vyas a long dialog written in Urdu which Baba Ghani had to say to inspire the soldiers who are running away from the battle field to come back. Vyas said that he can’t read Urdu. Sharma was surprised and asked then how he played the role of Maulana in Gaddar. He said he rehearsed his lines written in Devnagri script and played the part. He asked Sharma to get the dialog written in Devnagri, and promised to prepare and say them the next day.

Next day he said the lines with such perfection that Sharma gave him a small Silver Coin as a token of appreciation. After that Sharma would often ask him to say the lines whenever important people came to meet him. Once actor Dilip Kumar came and he was asked to say the lines in front of him as well. Dilip Sahab was very impressed and remembered that he had heard this voice before. Vyas told him that he may have seen Raj Kapoor’s Barsaat (1949) where he played actress Nargis’ father. Dilip Sahab then recommended Vyas ji’s name to play actress Naseem’s father in the film Baaghi (1953), produced by his brother Ayyub Khan. Fortunately copies of Shokhian (1951) are available and this scene is here for all of us to see. It was heartening to see Vyas recite the same dialogues with such enthusiasm even today, after almost sixty years.

B M Vyas acted in 175 films. His first film was Neecha Nagar-46 and last film was Oh,Darling ! yeh hai India-95.

Vyas ji left for a better world on 11 March, 2013. (Adapted from articles from Maitri Manthan and Blog beete hue din, with thanks.)

Today’s song is a comedy song, sung by Mohd. Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and chorus.

This Week, That Year – 4

20Sep – 26Sep, 2010

Post by post analysis of the weekly output – is an exercise that is getting more involved and detailed. As we progress, we are finding newer varieties and newer variations that add on to a now growing list of things to look at and check for. OK, so let us see what insight this week brings in.

Let’s first do the numbers. The challenge analysis and other details are presented in the table below. With one dot day (on 23rd Sep), this week saw as many as 34 posts. Except for one repeat, all songs are from different movies. So, 33 movies got featured that week. As many as 12 films made their debut. And of the 33 films that were showcased that week, 22 films have been yippeee’d over the past 10 years. Of the remaining 11, I am shifting two film to the twilight zone of Conditional Yippeee status, which I had proposed last week. The films are ‘Panchaayat’ from 1958 and ‘Dr Vidya’ from 1962 – I will give more details little later in write up.

I will highlight one change in notation. Last week I had proposed that for the songs which are listed for the film, but which are possibly not available in any format, will be denoted by ‘LFe’ – short for ‘Lost Forever’. Now there is a rethink about this terminology. At least one response to me was that ‘Lost Forever’ is a despairing notation, putting a sort of finality to the issue. So I propose to change this terminology to ‘UT’ indicating that the song is ‘Untraceable’ at least for now.

Two major milestones were announced this week. With the sixth song posted on 20th Sep, 2010, the blog reached the 3000th post. Given where we were at that time, ten years back, this was an enviable milestone in itself. Looking back, it may seem not very significant, on account of where we have now reached. But at that time, breaching the 3000 barrier was a great event. With the same song, we also had the first 1000th milestone for an individual artist. This very same song also became the 1000th song by Lata ji, posted on our blog. This was the first such accomplishment on the blog, for an artist.

We had just one guest post this week. Raja ji has done the post for the 3000th song plus the 1000th song of Lata Mangeshkar.

This week, we see many interesting variations and differences in the information that is available about the songs contained in specific films. Here are the details,

  1. ‘Deewaana’ (1952) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. Then the footnote to this film indicates that one more song was recorded for this film in the voice of Shamshad Begum. The inference to be drawn is that this 9th song is an unused song from this film. This song is also available, and has been posted on our blog.
  2. ‘Panchaayat’ (1958) – the gap in information is quite remarkable here. There is one song listed in Geet Kosh that is simply not traceable anywhere. The words of the song are “Main Ye Soch Kar Us Ke Dar Se Utha Tha”. Ah yes, rings a bell. This song appears in the 1964 film ‘Haqeeqat’. I replayed the movie to check, but did not find even a snippet of this song.
    However, viewing the film gave me some good information. The theme song of this film, “Mil Ke Baitho Jodo Bandhan” is a multi part song that appears in the film five times. We have this song on the blog, but we only have the portion that is heard in background as the film titles are being presented on screen. This song recurs on four more occasions later in the film.
    So two updates to this film that must be put on the blog. First, the theme song has to be updated for all the multi part segments. Second, then this film should be declared Conditional Yippeee, because the song “Main Ye Soch Kar. . .”, in all likelihood will remain untraceable, as far as this film is concerned.
  3. ‘Parwaana’ (1947) – Geet Kosh lists 9 songs, whereas we on the blog had added two more which we have extracted from the film soundtrack. One of them – “Balam To Pe Sabar Pade” is a very special song. This is the very last recording of KL Saigal Sb. It is an incomplete recording. However, the director has used this as a background song near the end of the film, by modifying the situations somewhat.
  4. ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs, whereas in the film there is one more song, actually a qawwaali, in the voice of Shamshad Begum and Usha Mangeshkar. So on the blog, we have one more song than the list in Geet Kosh.
  5. ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960) – On the blog we have one additional song, actually a snippet that is played at the end of the film. This snippet is not listed in the Geet Kosh.
  6. ‘Dr Vidya’ (1962) – This song list mismatch here is quite confusing. There are seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, out of which the song a serial no. 2 “Yahi Din Hain Bhanware Mann Arey Tum Nahin Samajhte” is not traceable. It does not appear to match with any other song in the film. And then there are two songs in the film which are not listed in the Geet Kosh. There is a fun qawwaali – “Yoon Hans Hans Kar Dekho Na Idhar”, which is performed on screen by Helen and Prem Chopra. And then there is this romantic song of promises to meet again – “Main Kal Phir Miloongi Isi Gulsitaan Mein”. So we have 8 songs of this film already posted, and there is one still pending whose fate is not known. Possibly then ‘Dr Vidya’ also merits to declared Conditional Yippeee.
  7. ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1958) – This film has 8 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. However, on our blog, we have one more additional song posted, which is essentially a poem rendition.
  8. ‘Doctor’ (1941) – I had mentioned about this film in the previous episode of this series. There is a small bit of confusion in the song list of this film in the Geet Kosh. GK lists 11 songs for this film. This film was declared as Yippeee’d on 29th August, 2014. In that post, Atul ji had written that ten songs of this film are already posted, and the eleventh song was being posted, declaring this film to be Yippeee’d. However, as we examine the lists, there is a bit of confusion that prevails overall.
    For starters, the song “Aai Nit Nai Rut Ki Bahaar” is listed twice in GK, once with Ila Ghosh as the singer, and once with Pankaj Mullick as the singer. This threw me off so completely, that I spent three four days two weeks ago, trying to trace the Pankaj Babu version of this song. Most responses I got from within the circle of collector friends was that this song does not exist. Secondly, the iconic Pankaj Babu song – “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar” is not listed in GK. I went over the GK entries in detail, including the addenda and the corrigenda. But could locate no other information.
    After some back and forth discussions, it is concluded that there is an error in the GK listings, in that the song listed in GK at serial no. 11 – “Aayi Nit Nari Rut Ki Bahaar” in the voice of Pankaj Babu, is incorrect, and that the words of this song should be “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar”. If this change is made, then the listings can be reconciled correctly.
    There is still one more variation in the GK listing and the blog list. The GK listing shows the two songs viz. “Kab Tak Niraasha Ki Andhiyaari” and “Bhai Jagat Ujiyaari Dekho” as two separate songs. On our blog, these two songs appear in the same post, so essentially the blog list does not show the latter song.

Now a word about the song covered in this post. The film is ‘Zindagi Ya Toofaan’ from 1958. As per the Geet Kosh, this film has 10 songs listed. All the songs come from the pen of J Nakshab, a name that we are also familiar as Nakshab Jarchavi. Music is composed by Nashaad.

The film is produced under the banner of Serafim Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Nakshab Jarchavi, the lyricist. The cast of actors is briefly given as Nutan, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Minoo Mumtaz, Johnny Walker, and Yakub. The film tells the story about the love of a young man, role played by Pradeep Kumar, for a dancing girl, role played by Nutan. Nine songs of this film are already posted here on our blog. This is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board.

The song itself is a wonderful expression in words about the exchanges that happen between the lover and the beloved. Each couplet, each line is such a beautiful visualization of that relationship. The video clip for this song could not be located. So it is not feasible to comment on the picturization of this song. Given the music and rendition, one can surmise that this song is presented as a mujra on screen. Expectedly, the song is performed by Nutan and Minoo Mumtaz. Both are dancing girls entertaining the guests, which would include Praeep Kumar and Yakub.

This wonderful ghazal presented as a mujra, is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board, and we can declare this film to be Yippeee’d now.

क्या क्या निगाह ए शौक लुटी है हया के हा॰॰आथ
आsss आsss आssssss
ये क्या हुआ के रुक गए सीने तक आ के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

आsss आsss
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
अफ़साना ग़ैर का वो समझ कर सुना किये
अफ़साना ग़ैर का वो समझ कर सुना किये
आया जो मेरा नाम
तो बस उठ के चल दिये
झुँझला के तैश खा के बिगड़ के छुड़ा के हाथ
झुँझला के तैश खा के बिगड़ के छुड़ा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
बेकल हुये तो रेह गया सब बांकपन पड़ा
बेकल हुये तो रेह गया सब बांकपन पड़ा
शिकवों का जब जवाब ना कुछ उनसे बन पड़ा
शिकवों का जब जवाब ना कुछ उनसे बन पड़ा
गर्दन में मेरी डाल दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
गर्दन में मेरी डाल दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

आss आss आsss आssss
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
नक़शब को किस अदा से इनायत किया था जाम
नक़शब को किस अदा से इनायत किया था जाम
आss आssss
देना किसी का साग़र ए मय याद है निज़ाम
देना किसी का साग़र ए मय याद है निज़ाम
मुंह फेर कर उधर को इधर को बढ़ा के हाथ
मुंह फेर कर उधर को इधर को बढ़ा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हा॰॰आथ
