OONCHI HAVELI (1955) was produced under the banner of Sharad Productions and it was directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The star cast included Karan Diwan, Nirupa Roy, Lalita Pawar, B M Vyas, Yashodara Katju, Bhagwan, Janakidas, Indira Bansal, Heera Sawant, Niranjan Sharma etc. The film appears to be an obscure one as no other details are available. From the title of the film as well as a few still photographs of the scenes from the film, the story looks to be about the conflict between a royal family and a commoner.

The film had 9 songs in it. One of these songs has been covered in the Blog as far back as in November 2011. All the songs were written by Bharat Vyas which were set to music by Pt. Shivram (I guess, the music director is the same person as Pt.Shivram Krishna).

Pandit Shivram Krishana (1927-1980) was one of those music directors from Rajasthan who was talented but had no luck to prosper as a music director in Bollywood. Despite being music director for 24 Hindi films between 1953 and 1980, composing some melodious songs, he could not rise to the category of even the second rung of music directors in Hindi movies.

Pt Shivram Krishna started his career as an assistant to Khemchand Prakash during the second half of 1940s. Before becoming a full-fledged music director in Hindi film industry, he worked as a music director with HMV. In 1951, he returned to Bombay and got his first break as a music director in V Shantaram’s ‘Teen Batti Chaar Rasta’ (1953) and ‘Surang’ (1953). In the latter period of his musical career, Pt Shivram Krishna was mostly associated with mythological films.

I am presenting one of Pt. Shivram Krishna’s songs ‘ roop kaisa diya hai tujhe Raam ne’ from the film OONCHI HAVELI (1955). This song is sung by Pt. Shivram Krishna, Asha Bhonsle and chorus. The song is written by Bharat Vyas. This song was not new to me as I had heard this song in my teens on Vividh Bharati.

The song is a rare one in the sense that despite my best efforts, I could not locate the song on YT. So I have made a video from mp3 clip of the song I had and have uploaded the same on YT.

nahin aata hai koi saamne

roop kaisa diya hai tujhe Raam ne

chaand sharmaaye gori tere saamne

INDRAASAN (Ekaadashi Mahima) (1952) appears to an obscure movie. In a few places on the internet, the film is spelled as ‘Indrasen’. I went by how the film was spelled on the publicity photographs of some scenes from the film. The film had some well-known actors of the 30s and 40s consisting of Prem Adib, Paro Devi, Ishwarlal, Durga Khote, Nand Kishore, Ranjana etc. The film was produced under the banner of Greenland Pictures, Bombay and was directed by Raja Nene.

Sometimes you wonder why a song becomes a huge hit. And at other times, you wonder why a song doesn’t.

Today, as I write this post, I am left to ponder on why this song did not become as huge a hit as, in my opinion, it deserved to. The only explanation I can come up with is that the film tanked badly at the box office. And as we know, many a song has suffered purely because the film itself didn’t do well.

This blog by now has become an online collaboration of likeminded music lovers. And these music lovers are collaborating on quite a few “projects” that may be informal but quite important and significant nevertheless.

Yesterday I happened to watch Anubhav (1971). I had last seen this film when I was a young boy. I must admit I wasn’t particularly impressed by it at that time. In those days, I was into “fun” movies which either had action (like Mera Gaon Mera Desh) or a typical storyline with catchy music (like Kati Patang). Anubhav had neither. The music was beautiful but not the type a 10-year old would find fun.

Big places like Delhi or Bombay (now Mumbai) are well known places and everyone knows them. People who live elsewhere, especially in small places want to visit these places.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 33
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

wo jab yaad aaye
bahut yaad aaye

yes, bahut yaad aaye. . .  that voice – the magic, the magnetism, the feeling of surreal contentment that descends into the being, and ensconces it with a joyous delight. It is a voice, that now lives only in our memories, or in the ethereal sound waves. The memories are such, they will never be detached till the breaths last. And the sound – they say in our culture that sound is forever; it lives in the space for all times to come.  And so will this voice. This voice – of Rafi Sb. This voice that went to sleep 36 years ago, today. 36 years seem to be a long time, a third of a human life already. But it seems just like, well, recently. And the affinity and the magic of this voice has only deepened with time.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, with all humility and respect and love.
