Today’s song is from a Mythological film-Devyani-1952.

This was the story of Kach and Devyani from Mahabharat. I like the various stories from our Epics Ramayan and Mahabharat. There are hundreds of subplots and stories in both these Holy books, in addition to the main stories. However, I like stories from the Mahabharat more than Ramayan. The reason is stories from Ramayana are simpler and involve good virtues like Love, Cooperation, Loyalty, truthfulness etc etc. These are desirable but have no links to today’s social structure. The stories from Mahabharat are built around the practical difficulties in day to day life, defeat of the evil at any cost and use of tact, diplomacy, revenge, punishment etc etc which are more interesting to read.

As such, Mahabharat in itself or its stories seem to be closer to today’s values like ‘Tit for Tat’ and winning over the Evil with equally Evil remedies. The basic difference between Ram and krishna is, Ram was a character who was upright, just and straightforward, while Krishna is a character down to earth, who does not mind using unconventional methods to defeat the Evil. I always feel that in today’s world Krishna tactics are more relevant than Ram Rajya rules !

The story of Kach and Devyani, on which the film Devyani -52 was based was…..

There were regular wars between the Gods and the Demons (Sur and Asur). However the Gods could never win any battle. The reason ? Rishi Shukracharya, who was the Rajguru of the Demons knew the Sanjivani mantra, with which the dead demons would be brought back to life.
Realising that without getting the mantra, they would never win any battle with Demons, the Gods sent Kach- son of God Brihaspati (Jupitor) to Shukracharya as his disciple. Kach impressed Shukracharya’s daughter Devyani and they became friends. Devyani started loving kach.
The Demons came to know who Kach was . They killed him, burnt his body and mixed the ashes with wine, which was given to Shukracharya to drink. He knew that it contained Kach ashes. Meanwhile Devyani came to know that Kach was killed. She insisted that Shukracharya use his Mantra and bring him back to life. Due to daughter’s love, Shukracharya recited the Sanjivani mantra and Kach came out alive from his stomach. Shukracharya died. But Kach now knew the Mantra and he brought back Shukracharya to life again.

Devyani now expresses her love and proposes marriage to Kach, but he refuses stating that since he came from Shukracharya’s stomach, she was her sister now. Devyani is disappointed with his weak logic and curses Kach that what he learned here, he will never be able to use anywhere. Angrily, Kach too curses her that no Bramhin will ever marry her in her life. He goes away and the film ends as a tragedy.

The film ends here alright, but it raised a question in my mind as to how, then, the Gods ever won the battles with Demons ? The answer is, during the ” Samudra – Manthan ” a pot containing ” Divine Potion ” came up. It contained Amrit, which made the Gods immortal (Amar). In due course Shukracharya also died, without parting with the Sanjivani mantra and thus the Demons were defeated in the ensuing wars by Gods.

The film Devyani-52 was produced by Madhukar Harihar under the banner of Madhav Pictures, Bombay. It was directed by Vasant painter and the Music Director was S.Purushottam, assisted by Shamrao Kamble. These names are rather not commonly seen or heard and the readers may not be knowing about them, as they did only few films compared to others and without any famous film either. Let us first know about Vasant Painter.

Vasant Anandrao Painter was born in a village near Kolhapur on 13-8- 1913. His father Anandrao, along with cousin Baburao Painter wanted to make films. Anandrao had bought a second hand Projector, which he turned into a Camera and shot a short film also. Unfortunately, Anandrao Mistry or Anandrao Painter died suddenly on 22-10-1915.Vasant Painter was only a 2 year old baby at that time. Baburao Painter went on to become the famous founder of Marathi films in the Silent Era.

By the time Vasant became 16 year old,the Silent film era was in full swing and many films were made in Kolhapur, Poona and Bombay. He had a liking for painting,so he picked up poster painting work,first in Maharashtra Film company and later in Prabhat film company when it was started in Kolhapur. Actually Damle and Fatelal were keen on helping him as he was the son of Anandrao, from whom they had learnt so many things. They called him to work in Prabhat. He did all jobs,including assisting in cinematography and direction.

His first break came when he was 33 year old. He got an opportunity to direct Prabhat’s film ” Gokul”-46 and later on ” Seedha Raasta”-47. After V.Shantaram had left Prabhat to start his own Rajkamal,Vasnt painter remained in Prabhat loyally, so he got the reward. Prabhat decided to make the film “Namdev” and Vasant was selected as a director. The cast was fixed and other arrangements done, but due to financial reasons the film was cancelled. Anyway, he got another opportunity. Actress Kamala Kotnis had floated a production company,Kamala Chitra Ltd..She invited Painter to direct her film,’Sati Ahilya’-49. Snehal Bhatkar was the MD.

Painter directed ‘ Bhishma Pratignya ‘-1950. This was,probably,the only Mythological film Nargis had acted in, with Shahu Modak.. His other films were,Murliwala-51, Devyani-52, Sajni-56, Patit paawan-55, Gokul ka chor-59, Pyar ki jeet-62 . Meanwhile he was producing and directing several Marathi films too. He won 9 awards,including the prestigious ” V.Shantaram Award”.

Vasant Painter died on 31-5-2006,leaving behind him 6 daughters and 1 son.

And now something about Shamrao Kamble….

Music Directors’ names are famous. At times their assistants too get a mention in the credits, but what about the soul of every song-the Arranger ? Many people do not even know that there is someone called an Arranger. An Arranger not only exists, but without him the song orchestration is not possible.

What does an Arranger do ?

A tune and music is decided by the Composer, but the harmonization of the orchestra is done by the Arranger. He decides which instrument should be used more, like one decides about a flower in a bouquet of flowers. Arranger is like an ‘ interior decorator ‘ of music. Composer decides what effect he needs and what should be the interlude music. Arranger decides which instrument should be played.

Melody is the main ingredient in a song. Orchestra has to supplement and complement the Melody. In this case orchestration is like Jewellery. A beautiful woman must use jewellery to enhance her beauty, but no overuse or underuse will do. Similarly Arranger does optimization of instruments.

Arranger must know the Notations, so that it can be written and given to the players.

How many Arrangers are known to the public in India ? A composer is Zero without an Arranger. So they try to employ the best of them in their service. Some of the Arrangers become successful Composers themselves, like Sonik-Omi or Laxmikant Pyarelal. Most arrangers fail as composers because they don’t know the commercial aspects, like getting films, knowing and mixing with film personalities in Parties, having friends and God fathers in the right place etc etc.

The other day I was reading a book “Voh Bhooli Dastaan” by Subhash Chandra Jadhav,on Indian Film Music. In this book he has described information about one such successful but totally unknown Arranger SHYAMRAO KAMBLE.

Kamble was born in Karad, near Kolhapur in Maharashtra, on 23-10-1925. His elder brother taught him Tabla and Pakhawaj. Kamble joined a musical drama company where he learnt writing notations. When he came to Bombay he accompanied great singers like Saraswati Rane, Suresh Haldankar, Manik Verma etc. He used to make rounds of film studios and learnt to play Piano, Saxophone, trumpet, mandolin etc.

His career started as an assistant to music director H N Sharma.

Then he worked for Roshan in Bawre nain, wherein he played harmonium in all songs and Roshan was pleased. In Bheegi Raat-65 he played Guitar in the song ‘Dil jo na kah saka’

While doing Anokhi Raat he made use of Flute artistically in ‘oh re taal mile’. During this film Roshan died and he helped his wife to complete the recording of ‘Sapnon ka raja’ by Lata.

Chitralekha’s background music was liked by Hemant kumar very much.

After Roshan, Kamble worked for his son Rajesh Roshan also.

Kamble says,“Though my work was appreciated, my name never appeared in film credits till Jaidev and Sudhir Phadke insisted for it.”

From ‘Mujhe jeene do’-63 Kamble became Jaidev’s assistant. He says,’ Jaidev ji was a composer totally sold to indian classical music.’ For Reshma and Shera Kamble used Sarod effectively.

The producer director of Gharonda,Bheem Sen insisted its music to be like R D Burman. Kamble used the interludes in every song just like RDB and songs of Gharonda became very famous. Jaidev was so happy that he gave a 5 speaker gramophone to him as a Gift.

In the film ‘Tumhaare Liye’ Kamble wanted Hariprasad Chaurasiya to play Flute. He discussed it with Hari ji, but Hari ji did not come for any rehearsals, so Kamble called Sumant Raj and did the rehearsals. As luck would have it,on the day of recording Hariprasad came to play Flute. Kamble did not hesitate in making his decision. He used both the flutists for different pieces in the song.

Kamble also worked with Sudhir Phadke. when a producer wanted to make a remake of marathi film ‘Vahininchya Bangdya”, he took Sudhir Phadke for Bhabhi ki choodiyan as a composer, but put a condition that his Arranger will work with him. That person was a Goanese and Phadke did not like his arrangement with western instruments for this emotional film. He called Kamble and asked him to write notations for all the songs on the tunes decided already. Kamble did all this and left. Phadke gave the notations to the Goanese arranger and asked him to arrange orchestration accordingly. That is why all the songs of this film including ‘Jyoti kalash chamke” became popular.

Shyamrao Kamble did not attempt to become a film composer himself, as he knew his limitations. However,for “Bibal-My Brother”-1975, he shared the music with Prabhakar Jog.

Shamrao himself was a brilliant composer as well. He used to compose Bhajans and once on listening to the Bhajans he composed, music director Pyarelal asked him “Shamraoji if you can compose the tunes so nicely, why don’t you think to be a full-fledged music director for films ?” He just said “I am more interested in the Music Arrangements..” Pyarelal asked him jokingly, “so shall I use your compositions ?” smiling, within a second he said, “Pyareji, my all work is for you… you may use it whenever you wish..!” I am very much sure that if Shamraoji had taken music-direction as a career, he would have definitely achieved the position in the list of most talented and successful composers in the Indian music field,” said Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, the ace music director.
“His knowledge and devotion towards music was so deep, that he even used to guide or suggest the top artists like Rais Khan (sitar), Hariprasad Chaurasia (flute), Shivkumar Sharma (santoor) about the playing during the recordings. He also used to express that a particular music piece would be more effective if improvised in a different manner etc. And the greatness of those artists also, who used to sportingly accept Shamraoji’s suggestions and appreciate the same.. This was only because they were fully aware of Shamraoji’s knowledge and capacity. And also this was the reason that we had given total freedom to him in our work also,” said Pyarelal.

In his early career, Shamrao had worked as a notation-writer. He was the one who wrote down the notation for Dinanath Mangeshkar’s natya sangeet (Chandrika hi janu, Vilopale Madhu Meelanat ya, Yuwati Mana etc).

Though he retired and settled in Poona, Laxmikant Pyarelal always called him for work. He has toured several countries with Laxmikant Pyarelal’s orchestra as an Arranger. Shamrao kamble died on 17-10-2008, at Dombivali, due to Brain Haemorrhage, at the age of 83 years.

The tribe of Arrangers always worked behind the curtain, without any limelight on them and without appearing in film credits.

Truly, they are the brains behind good music in films !

‘Sipahsalar’ (1956) was produced by F C Mehra under his banner, Eagle Films and was directed by Mohammed Hussain. The star cast included Shammi Kapoor and Nadira in lead roles supported by Kamal Kapoor, Sham Kumar, Samson, S Nazir, Cuckoo, Helen, Kumkum, Uma Dutt, Jagdish Kanwal, Rajan Kapoor etc. It is apparent from what I have seen from a few photographs of the films on the internet that the film belongs to the genre of costume drama.

The producer of the film, Faqir Chand Mehra (29/08/1923 – 29/07/2008) was born in Peshawar. The family shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) in early 1940s when he got a job in Royal Indian Air Force on the ground duties. However, after some time, he got suspended from the Air Force for in-subordination. With a big family to be looked after, he started dabbling in various types of small businesses. Eventually, he got success in the small business of film distributions in Afghanistan. It all started with F C Mehra taking some cans of films to Kabul and showing in a theatre. With good responses from the local population, he started earning good money. So, this was the beginning of F C Mehra’s tryst with Hindi films.

F C Mehra expanded his business of film distributions in Mumbai. He even started buying rights for the distribution of films under productions. One of such films where he had bought the distribution rights was struck up. He took over the production of that film and completed the film. So, F C Mehra accidentally turned film producer with this film and his banner, Eagle Films was born. (I guess, the film was ‘Sakhi Lutera’, 1955).

‘Sipahsalar’ (1956) was F C Mehra’s first planned film as a producer. In this film, he repeated the director, Mohammed Hussain and most of the supporting cast from ‘Sakhi Lutera’ (1955) and also lyricist, Farooq Qaiser and music director, Iqbal. Hereafter, F C Mehra produced and released films on a regular basis covering the genres of costume, suspense, thriller, comedy, social drama etc. Some of his prominent films included ‘Mujrim’ (1958), ‘Ajee Bas Shukriya’ (1958), Ujaala’ (1959), ‘Singapore’ (1960), ‘Professor’ (1962), ‘Shikaari; (1963), ‘Amrapali’ (1966), ‘Prince’ (1969), ‘Laal Pathar’ (1971), ‘Manoranjan’ (1974), ‘Hamaare Tumaare’ (1977), ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ (1984), ‘Aakhri Adaalat’ (1988) etc.

According to his son, Umesh Mehra, his father used to get the daily shoot of his film processed on the same evening after the pack-up well before the digital era came when the film’s shoots are available to watch online. The rushes would be seen by him in the next day morning and will be discussed with the director, If need be, some parts of the shoots would be reshot. He was also probably first to compensate his film distributors when his films resulted in the losses to them. He had done so when ‘Amrapali’ (1965) did not perform well on the box office.

Besides, Eagle Films, the film production unit which was a partnership among his family members, F C Mehra had a stake in Natraj Studios, Andheri along with film producers, Shakti Samanta, Promod Chakravarty, Atmaram and others. He also owned Minerva theatre in Mumbai and Plaza theatre in Delhi in partnership with Shammi Kapoor and others.

Sometime in 2000, F C Mehra develops some medical problem which was diagnosed as dementia. Doctors had certified that F C Mehra was incapable of taking financial and legal decisions. The last 8 years of his life were spent in the midst of dementia and amnesia without being aware of what was happening around him. In 2006, a dispute arose between the elder son, Parvesh Mehra and three younger sons led by Umesh Mehra about their father’s property, a part of which was sold by Umesh Mehra by virtue of holding the power of attorney on behalf of his father. The matter went to the court which dragged on for a long time. In the meanwhile, F C Mehra died of massive heart attack on July 29, 2008 and his eldest son, Parvesh Mehra, the complainant in the court case, died in December 2020.

Coming back to ‘Sipahsalar’ (1956), Shri Arunkumar Deshmukh who had seen the film in the theatre, had written a synopsis of the film in the article covering one of the songs of the film on the Blog. The film has the usual story of a good king being overthrown by his evil prime minister. The story again runs on the usual pattern with the ousted king who has escaped to a neighbouring country, regrouping his forces to fight the evil prime minister. From his loyal forces, the king selects Shammi Kapoor as his Sipahsalar. He conducts raids with his troops in which he is captured. But Nadira saves him and they run away to the forest. From the photographs which I have seen, it appears that the film has all the required ingredients for box office success like romance, dances, stunts, fights, comical situations etc, Finally, the Sipahsalar successfully carries the campaign to regain the lost kingdom for his king at the cost of sacrificing his life.

‘Sipahsalar’ (1956) had five songs written by Farooq Qaiser and set to music by Iqbal. Four songs from the film have already been covered on the Blog as under:

Songs Date of Post Singer/s
aankhon mein aankhen daal ke 07/08/2012 Asha Bhosle-Rafi
dil ne chheda hai taraana 01/07/2013 Asha Bhosle-Talat Mehmood
madr e watan madr e watan 15/08/2017 Rafi
ajee o jee tumehn dekh jiya jale 13/09/2018 Geeta Dutt

I am presenting the fifth and the last and final song of the film, ‘ek anaar aur sau beemaar’, sung by Asha Bhosle and chorus. The song was not available on any video sharing platforms. I have made and uploaded the video clip of the song on a video sharing platform. From the lyrics as well as the garba beats, it would appear that the song was picturised on a group of dancers (led by either Cuckoo or Helen).

With this song, all the songs of the film have been covered on the Blog.

Blog Day :

In recent days the ‘Yippeeee’ activity has taken a backseat on the blog. The ‘Yippeeee’ project too has been slowed down, and it is almost one year now when our ‘Yippeeee Guru’ had appeared last giving his darshan to ‘Yippeeee members like me’. 😊

I wished we should be ‘Yippeeee’ing’ at least one movie in a week if not daily. The last Yippeeee moment on the blog was on 27th July’2021 when the final song of movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa-1975’ got covered and the movie got YIPPEED.

There are quite a few movies waiting for their final song to be covered in the blog and thus getting admitted to the club of YIPPEED movies.

Today we induct one more movie to the hall of fame of YIPPEELAND. This movie is ‘Saudagar-1973’.

I had watched this movie years back on a TV channel. But until I had not watched this movie, I mainly associated this movie with its songs ‘Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon’ and ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ . I think these two songs were the well-known songs from this movie. But after watching the movie I do like other couple of songs from this movie and mainly the ‘majhi song’ – ‘door hai kinaaraa’ which grows up on us as we listen to it more and more. I like the movie and story content and presentation too.

This movie debuted on the blog on 04.04.2009 with its first song Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon. After that within a gap of less than two weeks the second song of this movie was posted on the blog and this was ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ which got posted on 15.04.2009.

One more known song from this movie i.e., Tera mera saath rahe followed the second song just after a gap of one day and this was posted on 17.04.2009. The fourth song of this movie followed the third song and was posted on next day i.e., on 18.04.2009. The fourth song posted on the blog was ‘Door hai kinaaraa, gehri nadi ki dhaaraa’.

After this fourth song the movie had to wait the next ten years when its fifth song was posted on the blog. This song was presented by Shri. Sudhir ji. He discussed the story and other details of this movie in his post. This fifth song was ‘champa nahin, chameli nahin, main genda nahin, gulaab nahin… main hoon phool baano’. I would request our readers to visit this post to read about the movie in detail. This song was posted in ‘Blog Ten Years Challenge’ on 04.04.2019. This was the fifth song from this movie posted on the blog.

The sixth song of this movie then appeared after a gap of more than a year and was posted on the blog on 09.10.2019. This song was ‘Husn hai ya koi qayaamat hai’. This song-post was presented by Peevesie’s Mom ji as tribute to the music director Ravindra Jain on his Remembrance Day. Peevesie’s Mom ji had also discussed about the story and other details of the movie in her post. I will not repeat them all again here.

Today’s song is the seventh and final song of this movie to be posted on the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Padma Khanna lip-syncs the song on the screen. Amitabh Bachchan is also seen in the picturization.

“Saudagar-1973” was a ‘Rajshri Pictures Pvt Ltd, Bombay’ ‘s presentation. It was directed by Sudhendu Roy. It had Nutan, Amitabh Bachchan, Padma Khanna, Trilok Kapoor, Murad, Dev Kishan, V. Gopal, C.S. Dubey, Pardesi, Narbada Shankar, Santosh Ghosh, Nadir, Rasraj, Paritosh Chaudhary, Ashok Mitra, Samar Roy, Jugnu, Chandu Ilaahabadi, Ramesh Verma, Shriram Shastri, Chaturvedi, Bihari, Leela Mishra, Paro, Habiba, Salma, Sitara, Suraiyya, Master Saka, Master Firdaus, Baby Shameena and many others.

This movie had seven songs. All songs of this movie were written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of ‘Saudagar-1973’ as mentioned in HFGK-Vol-V (1971-1980).

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On

Today’s song is from the film Shiv Bhakta-1955.

Today (6-9-2021) is the last Monday of the Shrawan month in this part of India (Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamilnadu, Andhra pradesh, telangana,Assam, West Bengal and Tripura). Actually, today is also the last day of this month of shrawan. From tomorrow month of Bhadrapad starts and within few days, will be Ganesh Chaturthi- celebrations for the home coming of Lord Ganesh – the Vighna Harta i.e. संकट मोचक (remover of Obstacles).

Film Shiv Bhakt-55 was made by A.V.M. in Madras. By and large, in my opinion, South India has protected, followed and nurtured the Hindu Dharma and Indian traditions as compared to other parts. Culture is practically the same all over India, but in the south one can still see old traditions and cultural activities followed more. This is my personal observation. As a Marketing Professional I had the opportunity to travel throughout India-even smaller towns- for almost 25 years. In these years i have observed and made notes in my diaries from time to time about the specialties of each state and its people.

Mythological films are very popular in South India. Though the number is less now, still more such films are made in the south than any other part of India. As if a tradition, most of the famous and the well known actors from south began their film careers by first doing a Mythological film. M G Ramchandran-MGR, N T Rama Rao-NTR, A Nageshwar Rao-ANR, Anjali Devi, Sivaji ganeshan and many others began with a religious film. Even Dr. Rajkumar of kannada movies started with a film on a Shiv Bhakt – Bedara kannappa-54.

Today’s film Shiv Bhakta-55 is directed by one legend from the south- H L N Simha or H. Laxmi Nar Simha. His name is not known outside the south, but in the south, especially in the Kannada film world, he was a highly respected personality.

H L N Simha was born on 25-7-1904, at a village Madhalli, in Malavalli in Mandya district of Karnataka. Starting as an actor in Dramas, he soon established his own drama company-” Chandrakala Natak Mandali”,along with a fellow actor Mohd. Peer. His first film was Sanskara Nauka-36,in which he was an actor,writer, screenplay writer and its Director too. He is famous for locating and introducing Dr. Rajkumar into films. Raja Sulochana and Pandaribai are also his discoveries. He was credited for making Dr. Rajkumar work in a Telugu film, under his direction-” Kalahasti Mahatmyam”-54. This was Rajkumar’s only film outside Kannada language !

Mr.Simha served the stage and film industry for nearly half a century. His interest in stage began when he was a young lad and wrote his short play, ‘Destiny Rules Humanity’ and brought it on stage with Mohamed Peer, another renowned stage actor of yesteryears. Later he joined the famous Varadachar Drama Company and began playing minor roles.

Appreciating the stage talent of Mr.Simha, Gubbi Veeranna sent him to Bombay, present Mumbai, for training in film direction. After the training, Mr.Simha joined hands with Mr.Gubbi Veeranna as Assistant Director and produced a silent movie, “His Love Affair”. His major stage play, “Samsara Nouka” (the life’s boat) brought him rich encomiums as a top drama producer and director. It was brought on stage during 1933. Breaking tradition of Pouranic plays, “Samasara Nouke” tread a new path. It became the first social play in Kannada touching upon the prevailing social issues and conditions like dowry, unemployment and widow marriage. Simha played the leading role as Maadhu, while Peer Sab as Sundara in this play, which was staged in the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu also, besides in several places in Karnataka.

His role as Shahajan in the same title play and as Chenna in ‘Gouthama Buddha’ play brought him more laurels. Then leading stage personalities like T.P.Kailasam, Pandit Taranath and Thirumale Thatacharya Sharma were among those who lauded the acting abilities of Mr.Simha, apart from his abilities as a director of Kannada plays.

Simha later set up his own troupe, “Simha’s Select Artistes” and produced dramas like “Abba Aa Hudugi”, “Bamgarada Bara”, “Madhakari Nayaka”. Those who acted in these dramas included Rathnakar and M.V.Narayana Rao (who spoke at the function on July 27), film script writer Sorot Aswath, and M.V.Rajamma.

The next phase in the life of Mr.Simha was that of a film producer. Then famous film producer of Madras, Mr. K.Rajagopala Chettiar invited Mr. Simha to produce his famous play “Samsara Nouka’ as a film. Taking up the challenge of producing a social Kannada film for the first time, Mr.Simha introduced to the film industry B.R.Panthulu, M.V.Rajamma, Dikki Madhava Rao, Tamash Madhava Rao, Hunsur Krishnamurthy and Hanumantha Rao, who later became leading personalities in the Kannada film world.

When Mr. Simha was looking for a suitable person for his ‘Bedara Kannappa’, he saw Mutthu Raju, now Dr. Rajkumar, who has now become a household name in the film industry, at Nanjangud and gave him the new name in the lead role. This film became a hit and brought Dr.Rajkumar to limelight. Apart from Dr.Rajkumar, Mr.Simha introduced several other famous personalities like G.V.Iyer, Narasimha Raju, Raja Sulochana, Honnappa Bhagavathar, Raja Shankar, B. Hanumanthachar to the film world.

Mr.Simha’s last film was “Anugraha” in 1970, had a song written by his son, Mr.Sheshachandra. But unfortunately, Mr.Simha was not alive to see the film, when it was released. He passed away on July 3, 1972, leaving a legend behind him, which, unfortunately very few remember today.

The cast of the film Shiv Bhakt-55 was Shahu Modak, Padmini, Ragini, Anant Marathe, Pandari bai,Ramachandra sastry and many others. Lyrics were by G S Nepali and the music was given by Chitragupt. One name in the cast is Pandaribai. She is one south indian actress who worked in many Hindi films Her first Hindi film was ‘Bahar’-51, in which evn Vaijayanti mala had debuted.

Pandari Bai (18-9-1928 to 29 January 2003) was an actress of South Indian languages films, mostly in Kannada language during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. She was born on 18-9-1928 at Bhatkal, Karnatak, to Kaveri Bai and Ranga Rao. She is considered Kannada cinema’s first successful heroine. She has acted as both heroine and mother to stalwarts such as Rajkumar, M. G. Ramachandran, Sivaji Ganesan. She was the heroine in Rajkumar’s debut movie Bedara Kannappa and also Sivaji’s debut movie Parasakthi. She has acted in over 1,000 films in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Bai was honoured by Kalaimamani from the Tamil Nadu government.

Pandaribai began her career in acting in plays based on mythological stories before making her film debut in 1943 with the Kannada language film, Vani. She appeared in the 1954 Kannada film Bedara Kannappa opposite Rajkumar. In the film, she played Neela, wife of Kanna (played by Rajkumar), a hunter. She established herself as a lead actress portraying a woman with a “progressive” image assuming the burdens of a feudal patriarchy in films such as Sant Sakhu (1955) and Rayara Sose (1957). In 1959, she appeared in Abba Aa Hudugi, with her sister Mynavathi. The film is considered a landmark in Kannada cinema.
Later in her career Pandari Bai played the mother of stars older than her, most of whom had played the lead with her in her earlier years. She worked in 27 Hindi films. Her first Hindi film was Bahar-52, in which Vaijayantimala made her Debut in Hindi films. Pandharibai’s Hindi pronunciation initially was typically south indian, but over a period, she improved her diction. Her last Hindi film was Time Bomb-1996. However, after her death on 29-1-2003, 3 more delayed Hindi films were released. She came to be known to Hindi audiences mainly due to her role in the film Bhabhi-57. Some of her famous Hindi films were Panchayat-58, Paigham-59, Rakhwala-71, Apna desh-72 and Sampoorna Ramayan-73.

The story of the film was – The story of the film was-
Manimant and Alka are a happy couple in Gandharva Lok. Due to a curse by Indra, they have to take birth on Earth. They are found in the jungle by a Hunter who adopts them and brings them up. When they are young, they are married as Deena and Neela. They live a happy life, but some bad elements in their tribe spread rumours about them and they are thrown out of the village. Deena is very angry and becomes a nastik (atheist) because, for no fault of theirs, god has punished them. Neela however has deep faith in God.

One day when Deena could not get any animal for hunting, tired he sits at a place, which happens to be a Shiva Temple. The priest Kashinath finds out about him and asks him to repeat the mantra “Om Namah Shivay” continuously till he gets an animal. Deena, without knowing anything about it, starts the Japa and after some time his heart is filled with bhakti Rasa and love for God.

The chief Priest Kailashnath is a bogus person. He steals God’s jewellery and gives it to his dancer girlfriend Rani. When the theft comes to light, Deena is accused of the theft as he was in the temple. For the second time he has to suffer for no fault. Deena and Neela continue the Japa of Om Namah shivay and are ready to give the supreme sacrifice with their lives, when Lord Shiva appears before them and takes them to Gandharvalok again.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle.

Today’s song is from the film Toote khilone-1954. The film was made by Pragati Pictures, Bombay. Produced by N.Mehta, it was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. Though this was a social film, Nanabhai Bhatt was known for Mythological and stunt films. His real name was Yeshwant and pet name was Batuk. he directed his first Hindi film-Muqabala-42, using his name-Batuk Bhatt. Nana and Batuk indicate the small one or the younger one. Obviously Nanabhai was the youngest sibling. Incidentally, he was the father of Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, from his second wife-Shirin bai, one time actress.

The Music Director for this film was my favourite and the Melody maker-Chitragupta, with Dilip Dholakia as his usual assistant. Though he always, invariably, made melodious music, more than most other MDs, Lady Luck did not support him wholeheartedly and he remained an MD for generally B and C grade films. He did get a few films from A grade banners like AVM, but it was not enough to stabilise him in that slot.Toote khilone-54 was actually his almost the first Social film after he composed music from 27 earlier films of B and C grades.Lata mangeshkar was very close to Chitragupta. Initially when Lata increased her fees from 100 to 500 rupees per song, Chitragupta told her, ” Lataji, now I will not be able to afford your songs” To this Lata replied,” whenever you need me, just call me. For you this rate will not apply.” And true to her words, she sang for him and never ever charged him. She took whatever he gave her.

Like Chitragupt, his assistant Dilip Dholakia was also not very lucky as a MD. Chitragupta was a very homely and simple fun loving person.They had a group consisting of Lata, Meena, Usha, prem Dhavan and Dilip Dholakia. They used to have a lot of fun at Chitragupt’s home. Chitragupta was a Lalaji (Kayastha in Bihar). Their Non Veg food used to be very good and Lata relished it very much.

In the late 80’s I got introduced to Chitragupta personally, when my best friend’s daughter got married to his elder son. When Chitragupta came to know that I liked their ” Sattu ki Puree”, he invited me to his home for Lunch and we had Sattu Purees, Aloo saag and kheer to our heart’s content !

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle and chorus. Just a few days back, in my write up for the 1000th post, I had said that the film history gets updated from time to time, whenever there is a New Evidence available. For a long time, it was believed that Asha’s first song was from the film Chunaria, under the baton of Master Hansraj Behl. But now it is proved that she sang her first song in the film ” Andhon ki Duniya”-1947, which was released on 10-1-1948. Chunaria -48 was released at the end of November 1948. Raju Bharatan has given this proof on page 287 of his book ” Asha Bhosle-A Musical Biography.”

The cast of the film Toote Khilone-54 was Shekhar (with the real unusual name of Indriya Daman), Purnima, Gulab, Ranjit Kumari, Master Romi, Ginger the Dog and other humans.

The guest artiste was Asha Mathur. She started her film career in a dramatic way. When she was studying in I.T.College in Lucknow, once Kishore Sahu came there as a Judge in their Beauty Contest. Bina Rai stood first, Asha Mathur was Second and one Indira Panchal was third. Kishore Sahu gave a break to all three in his film Kali Ghata-1951. Bina Rai became a well known actress. Indira Panchal chose to leave films and got married into the famous Mahindra family and Asha Mathur had a chequered career.

One of the few educated actresses of her times, Asha Mathur (Sohan Singh in real life) studied up to B.A. Both Asha Mathur and Bina Roy were introduced by Kishore Sahu in Kali Ghata (1951). While Bina Roy was relatively more successful among the two and did some memorable movies including Anarkali (1953) and Taj Mahal (1963), Asha Mathur was relegated to obscure mythical and costume films including Alif Laila (1953), Rajyogi Bharthari (1954), Malka-E-Alam Noorjehan (1954), Amar Kirtan (1954) etc because of her lackluster performances. Her most memorable role was in Poonam (1952), as a suffering wife of Ashok Kumar. She married famous director of her times Mohan Sehgal and left films. She acted only in 18 films. Her last film was Taqdeer-58.

Asha Mathur is a forgotten name today except for the few popular songs picturized on her – Humsai na poocho koi pyar kya hai (Kali Ghata, 1951) and Baanki adayein dekh na ji dekh na(Amanat, 1955).

Ranjeet Kumari’s name was Ranjit Kaur. She was a sikh from Punjab. She acted in only 8 films, from Matwali Meera-40 to her last film Toote Khilone-54. She got married to actor Ramsingh and moved with him to his village in U.P. to become and remain a housewife till her last day.

One of the beauties of old films was Gulab. The First actress from Kashmir to work as a Heroine in Hindi films was GULAB. Her real name was Saraswati Devi. She was born on 10-6-1908 at Jammu. She joined Krishna Film Company in 1924. Her first silent film ‘Krishna kumar’ came in 1925. She worked in 60 silent films. Her last silent film was ‘Dagabaz Dushman’-32, made by East India Film co.Bombay.

Her first Talkie film was Suryakumari-33, made by Vishnu Cinetone. It was directed by Dhirubhai Desai. She sang one song ‘more preetam jab ghar aaye’ composed bu Kikubhai Yagnik. Then came Baburao Patel’s ‘Bala Joban’-34, Sewa Sadan-34 and Nai Duniya-34 ( Debut film of Rajkumari and Jayant). In this film Gulab sang 2 songs.

Gulab was very beautiful and quite popular in the film industry. Some of her films were Bambai ki sethani-35, Challenge-37, Bharosa-40, Pyas-41, Ek Raat-42, Station master-42, Gaali-44, Rattan-44, Mann ki jeet-44, Mirza Sahibaan-47, Lahore-49, Badi Behan-49, stage-51, Post Box 999-58, Chhabili-60 etc etc. She acted in 160 films. Her last film seems to be Haqeeqat-64. She also sang 22 songs in 11 films.

The story of film Toote Khilone-54 , as I found on Cineplot, is…..Pragati Pictures’ “Toote Khilone,” premiered at the Roxy Theatre on March 19th, 1954 is pro­duced by N. Mehta and directed by Nanabhai Bhatt and it is a very good film based on a story-idea whose truth and simplicity invest it with an irresistible appeal.

The deeply moving and very human story, sensitively enacted by Shekhar, Purnima, Asha Mathur and little Romi, tells of a little child and his bewildered sorrow in the midst of do­mestic troubles. Written by Akhtar Mirza, the story centers on a young married couple and their little son who dotes on his mother’s cousin, Sheela. When the mother dies of cancer, Sheela stays on to look after the little boy and eventually marries his father. Trouble arrives in the shape of Sheela’s mother who moves into the happy household and builds up in her daughter a resentment against the child. The poisonous insinuations of the older woman turn Sheela into a confused and bitter foster-mother, but kindness and love triumph when the heart-broken child runs away. The film reaches a cleverly presented climax in which Sheela and her husband find the child safe and all three happily return home.

Playing his role with restraint and sym­pathy is Shekhar who puts on a fine perform­ance as the boy’s father. His portrayal of a man who marries a second time so that his child may have a mother is quite flawless. As the young wife, Purnima is superb. Hers is a natural and convincing performance, done with a fine understanding of the role.

A superb performance comes from Romi, as the little boy caught up in a web of circumst­ances he cannot understand. He is utterly lov­able and, together with the wonderful canine star, Ginger, he walks away with the picture’s honors. Gulab turns in another one of her brilliant cameos as the interfering mother-in-law, and Asha Mathur gives an appealing and warm in­terpretation of the tragic role of Shekhar’s first wife.

We can see from the above table that three movies viz. ‘Baghaawat’, ‘Dakoo Maan Singh’, and ‘Maayaa Baazaar’ have not yet made their debuts on the blog.

The songs from these three movies seem to be unavailable as of now (as I could not find them). One movie ‘Hulchal’ had no songs in it. That gives us thirty movies from the total of thirty-four movies which have been represented on the blog.

Out of these thirty movies exactly half numbers i.e., fifteen movies have already been YIPPEED on the blog.

So, eleven movies from this period 01.05.1971 to 31.08.1971 still have a few songs left to be covered. Out of these eleven movies I have presented songs from ‘Badnaam Basti’, ‘Bahke Kadam’, ‘Brahmaa Vishnu Mahesh’, ‘Iraadaa’ and ‘Shaan E Khuda’.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Puraani Pehchaan’. I had not listened to the songs from this movie earlier and even the name was new to me when I came across it first time. I listened to the today’s song while preparation of this post and liked the song too.

“Puraani Pehchaan-1971” was directed by Kewal Mishra for ‘Durga Films, Bombay’.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Tanuja, Madan Puri, Bela Bose, Shammi, B.B. Bhalla, Tarun Bose, Dhanraj, Dilip Dutt, Johny Whisky, Sangeeta, Rafia Sultana, and others.

This movie had six songs composed by Music Director Bhushan and lyrics for all songs were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri.

Following is the details of the songs of this movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

Geet Kosh-V mentions that the title for this movie was changed later from ‘Jab Jab Raat Wo Aayee’ which was its initial title given. Also, the 78 RPM records for the soundtracks of this movie were released by this name – ‘Jab Jab Raat Wo Aayee’ only.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1971.

Two songs from this movie ‘Puraani Pehchaan-1971’ have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is Tanuja lip syncing for Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Also see in the picturization of this song are Sanjeev Kumar, Bela Bose, Madan Puri and others.

This song seems to be a ‘haunting’ song in the movie. I have not watched this movie, so can’t say much about it.
I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

The picturization of this song reminds us of similar other songs in Hindi movies, e.g., ‘rulaa ke gayaa sapnaa mera’ from ‘Jewel Thief-1967’ etc. But we do not exactly know in what context the today’s song happens.

However, we can listen and enjoy the today’s song …

As mentioned above singer for today’s song is Asha Bhonsle and lyrics are by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music is composed by Bhushan.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati” (1969) was produced by Surinder Kapoor and directed by Bhappie Sonie with songs written by Rajinder Krishan and composed by Kalyanji Anandji. It had a cast of Babita, Shashi Kapoor, Om Prakash, Rajendranath, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Helen Hari Shivdasani etc.

The story was a straight forward one of a rich girl (Babita) falling in love with Prem Chopra who is after her wealth (as usual). Pritam (Shashi Kapoor) falls in love with this girl and tries to woo her away from her chosen person and has the approval of her rich uncle (Om Prakash) and is eventually successful. Then there is a minor twist regarding the birth mother foster mother etc. That is the synopsis. The movie had 7 songs of which the blog has 6 as under:-

A man is always happy when he is in his comfort zone. I too feel at home and comfortable when I am dealing with films of the Vintage Era, i.e. 30’s to 50’s. There comes a feeling of togetherness, familiarity and ease of communication. I am sure the same must be the case of those who write on films of the recent past, i.e. of the period 70’s to the present. Change the position and one feels awkward, uncomfortable and not so well. This is not a statement about any period, but I am trying to paint a picture, how people are happy in the surroundings which are known,familiar and about which one has the knowledge. By the way, I have written many posts on films from the 70s to as late as 2018 also.

Maybe this is due to the age difference, but I am certainly not one who detests whatever is new – may it be a Cinema, a song or social environment. Change is mandatory, inevitable, unavoidable and a reality. Wisdom is in accepting what is changed and then in finding points of similarity and likeability in the new changes. Changes are effected to conform to present needs, visions and compatibility towards outside influences beyond our control.

Changes are the precursors of Evolution. From Fish to Humans is a result of changes which took place in thousands of years. One who says changes are bad, is saying that remaining as Monkeys was better ! However, changing or accepting the changes does not put a stamp on the uselessness of the older things. It only means that those things were good in those times and conditions.

Take the simple example of NFS (Non Film Songs) v/s Film songs. NFS were popular from the 30’s to the 50’s. After that NFS disappeared perceptibly and today only Film songs are there. Why did this happen ? If you listen to most of the NFS, they were slow,soft, melodious, soulful but they made you illusioned. That was when the world was trying slowly to come out of the effects of World Wars. Several countries were becoming independent. The world started brimming with enthusiasm,hopes and visions of a brighter future. Lilting tunes and newer musical instruments helped upping the positive vibes, so necessary to build up a new World. Film songs filled this need and slowly the slow, soft and soulful NFS disappeared. Just compare the film songs of the 40’s, 50’s and today’s film songs. See the difference. Today we feel old music was better, but that is because of Nostalgia – memories attached to those songs, films and people. It was good for those days. Today this is good.

When one talks of NFS, can one forget Jagmohan ? Those were the days when NFS by Jagmohan, Juthika Roy, Pankaj Mullik, Hemant Kumar, Talat Mehmood and many more private singers shook the music world and their records sold by thousands. Although Jagmohan Sursagar ( 6-9-1918 to 4-9-2003) sang 33 songs in 19 Hindi films, he gave music to only 1 Hindi film in his career. Film Sardar-55 was produced and directed by Gyan Mukherji (30-9-1909 to 13-11-1956). He directed only 7 full films and 2 half films. Film Madhu-59 and Sitaron se aage-58 were done half when he died suddenly. Madhu-59 was completed by S.Mukherji and Sitaron se aage-58 was completed by Satyen Bose. Gyaqn Mukherji directed films only in which Ashok Kumar was Hero( same way, his brother Shankar Mukherji directed films of only Dev Anand-except Jhumroo-61 of Kishore kumar)

There were 9 songs in the film originally, however one song by Lata was removed from the film later. Songs were written by Udhav Kumar(5), Kaif Irfani(3) and Vrajendra Gaud(1). When you listen to these songs, you can’t believe Jagmohan could give such variety in film music. One song, sung by himself, was based on Fox Trot music-a novelty in films of that period. I feel sorry that Jagmohan was not used by the Hindi film industry as a MD for more films. We surely missed some good music because of that.

The cast of the film was Ashok Kumar, Bina Rai, Nigar Sultana, Jagdish Sethi, Rama Shukul (probably his last film), Tiwari and many others.Nigar Sultana was one of the busiest artistes in the 50’s. Out of her total 52 films, she worked in 32 films from 1950 to 1960. She was also famous for her affairs with several film artistes. The famous writer journalist ‘ Manto’ has written quite a juicy account of it in his book.

Nigar Sultana (21 June 1932 – 21 April 2000) . She appeared in Aag (1948), Patanga (1949), Sheesh Mahal (1950), Mirza Ghalib (1954), Yahudi (1958), Do Kaliyaan (1968), etc. but she is most notably remembered for playing the role of “Bahar begum” in the historical epic film Mughal-e-Azam (1960). She was the wife of filmmaker K. Asif. She died in May 2000, in Mumbai, India.

Nigar Sultana was born on 21 June 1932 in Hyderabad, India. She was the youngest daughter of a family of five. She had two brothers and two sisters. She spent her childhood in Hyderabad where her father held the rank of a Major in the Nizam’s State Army. She went to school for a while and later studied at home. She took part in a school drama on one occasion and ever after was keen on acting. After her father’s retirement, the family faced financial difficulties and Nigar was married off to a Driver. After she became pregnant the couple took divorce.

The first film Nigar ever saw was Hum Tum Aur Woh (1938). She was so utterly thrilled by it that when Jagdish Sethi, a friend of her father’s, offered her the lead in a film he was making with Mohan Bhavnani, she took it on the spot.

She entered the films with the 1946 film Rangbhoomi. She also did a small role in the film 1857. Then came Bela-47 as a Heroine opposite Jairaj. Raj Kapoor’s Aag (1948) was her first big break to Bollywood. She played the character role of “Nirmala”, which was equally appreciated by critics and audience. After that, she played character roles in a number of films.

Her big picture was Shikayat (1948), made in Poona; and after that many more in which she played leading roles. She played the role of the court dancer Bahar, who envies Prince Salim’s (Dilip Kumar) love for Anarkali (Madhubala) in the film Mughal-e-Azam (1960). The songs Teri mehfil mein and jab raat ho aisi matwali were picturised on her.Her other films included Dara (1953) and Khyber.

Patanga (1949), Dil Ki Basti (1949), Sheesh Mahal (1950), Khel (1950), Daman (1951), Anand Bhavan (1953), Mirza Ghalib (1954), Tankhah (1956), Durgesh Nandini (1956) and Yahudi (1958) are among her noted movies. She was most active during the 1950s and appeared in only a lesser number of movies later. Jumbish: A Movement – The Movie in 1986 was her last Bollywood film. The famous song of Patanga-49 ” Mere piya gaye Rangoon” was filmed on her. She looked very attractive in that song. The song is still popular.

When she was working for Ranjit Films, she posed for a provocative photo. On the publication of that photo, Ranjit removed her from their films. Later many other heroines did such Photo sessions, but the First daring was by Nigar Sultana.

Nigar Sultana was linked with Pakistani actor Darpan Kumar. She had actually married him, when he was called to Bombay by kardar for his films. In the mid 50s when she was in financial difficulties Darpan and she were divorced. On 13 June 1959, Nigar Sultana held a press conference specifically to deny reports that she was married to the Pakistani actor. Later, Nigar Sultana married K. Asif, producer-director of Mughal-e-Azam (1960). When finally she divorced K.Asif, he gave her 200 rupees per month as compensation.

Nigar had close friendship with actor Shyam, Kamal Amrohi, Najam Naqvi, Rehman, Zuhur Raja, and D N Madhok also.

Nigar Sultana was the mother of actress Heena Kausar. Heena Kausar appeared in secondary roles in a large number of films during the 1970s and early 1980s.

Two actresses of the 1950s, Chitra (born Afsar-un-nisa) and Paras (born Yusuf-un-nisa) were Nigar Sultana’s nieces.

She had also been married to S. M. Yusuf when he lived in India, with whom she had one child. The child became actress Heena Kausar. Nigar acted in 52 films in her 26 years’ career.

She died on 23 April 2000 in Mumbai, India. ( Thanks to wiki, book Inhe na Bhulana by Harish Raghuwanshi ji, HFGK, muVyz and my notes, for this information.)

Let us now listen to today’s excellent song from the film Sardar-55. As I had said in a few articles back, many such ‘Gems’ from the 50’s must still be uncovered. Jagmohan used 5 singers for 9 songs. Today’s song is by Asha Bhosle. In that period, she always got songs for Cabarets, Mujaras, dances and for side heroines. From this struggling position, she fought her way up to an enviable position, reaching Guiness Records. Hats off to her grit and hard work.


Song-Aayee jhoom ke deewaani liye pyaar ki nishaani (Sardaar)(1955) Singer- Asha Bhonsle, Lyricist-Udhav Kumar, MD- Jagmohan Sursagar (Jaganmoy Mitra)

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

aayi jhoom ke deewaani

machal kahin mat jaana
tujhe apni kasam
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana

tujhko hansaane tadpaane
hazaaron anjaane tere ghar aaye
banke deewaane parwaane
bejaane pehchaane yahaan mandraaye
gar jeena hai to dhokhe se zara dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana

koi agar lalchaaye
tujhe bahlaaye
bane dildaara
karde jigar dikhlaaye
kasam bhi khaye
wahi haaye mara
in ghaaton se aur baaton se zara dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana

ye hai zamaane waale
bade matwaale
sabhi saudaayi
padna na inke paale
na karna hawaale
nazar harjaai
koi aankhen bichha khaanse na zara
dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani

Welcome all to this post. Today we are going to listen to a ‘party’ song from the movie ‘Yaadgaar-1970’.

‘Yaadgaar-1970’ was directed by S. Ram Sharma for ‘Kunal Chitra, Bombay’. It had Nutan, Manoj Kumar, Pran, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Junior Mehmood, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Lalita Chatterjee, Asit Sen, Lakshmi Chhaya, Shammi, Man Mohan, Polsan, Jayshree, Kuljeet, Renu, Raj Kishore, Harbans Pape, Kirti Behl, Manohar, Naidu, Birbal, Hansraj, Shrinath, Mohan Shery, Dubey, Sabina, Manohar Gosvai, Kesho Rana, Brahm Bharadwaj, Sobti, Alija, Genius, Darshan M., Ravikant, Chandra, Mohan Chhotu, Narbada Shankar, Ramlal and others.

This movie had six songs written by Indeevar and Verma Malik (three songs each).
(One song ‘ik taaraa boley’ is in two parts and it is considered as two songs).

Here is the list of songs of this movie as given in HFGK Vol- IV (1961-1970),

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ik taaraa boley tun tun, kya kahe ye tumse sun sun (Part-I) Mahendra Kapoor 13.04.2009
02 Aaye jahaan bhagwaan se pahle… wo khet mein milegaa Mahendra Kapoor 13.04.2019
03 Jis ghar mein daaku chor chhupe… Ik taaraa boley tun tun (Part-II) Mahendra Kapoor 13.04.2009
04 Bahaaron ka hai melaa … phool koi mere liye bhi to ho Asha Bhonsle Being posted today
05 Boli saawan ki raat badi paawan hai raat… Hamne dekhi hai honewaali bhabhi Mahendra Kapoor, Nutan, Manhar, Jr Mehmood, Birbal 16.05.2021
06 Jis path pe chalaa us path pe mujhe aanchal to bichhaane de… mujhe saath to aane de Lata Mangeshkar 28.11.2011

Music for this film was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip-synced on screen by young Jayshree T. In the movie this song happens at a ‘party’ (held in the name of ‘family gathering’) arranged by Prem Chopra with not so good intentions for Nutan. He tries to misbehave with Nutan.

However, it turns out that his own sister (in the movie) (I am unable to identify this actress) also has to go through the same trauma as Nutan, when actor Raj Kishore misbehaves with her. Of course, this incident takes place after the song and dance performance of Jayshree T is over and almost all members present in the party are already drunk.

So far, five songs (including one multiple version song) from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is the sixth and final song of this movie ‘Yaadgaar-1970’ to be posted here on the blog. With this song, ‘Yippeeee’ moment for this movie arrives today.

Let us now listen to today’s song.

Lyrics are by Indeevar, and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.
