ना जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया॰ ॰ ॰

The touch was of magic. But the real life is so different from reel life. A career that spanned well over five decades, the opportunities for this magic touch weren’t many.

Remembering Naqsh Lyallpuri on the anniversary of his birth (24th Feb).

The full real name of this poet was Jaswant Rai Sharma. He was born in 1928, in the Lyallpur town (now in Pakistan, and renamed to Faislabad). His father was an engineer and he wanted young Jaswant to follow his footsteps and be an engineer. His mother passed away when he was only six, and his father remarried. As the young child grew through his school and college days, his interest in literature became evident and prominent. He drifted apart from his father, for the obvious reason that his father did not look kindly at the literary interest of his son, whom he had dreamt of being another engineer in the family.

When he was 18, he went to work with Hero Publishers, a publishing house in Layallpur. Just about a year later, partition happened, and he moved with family to Lucknow. His literary and poetic interests and activities met with a stern disapproval from his father. The drift made the young Jaswant leave home and move to Bombay, in search of a career as a songwriter. He took on the pen name of ‘Naqsh’ – meaning an imprint or an impression, and added Lyallpuri, being the town of his birth.

The early years, rather the early decades were just a struggle. He first started working with Times of India as a proof reader, and later got an employment with the Post Office. As for literary activities, he was drawn into the theatre activities to start with and started writing stage plays. Here, he came in touch with actor Ram Mohan, who in turn, introduced him to Jagdish Sethi. After reading some of his poetical works, Jagdish Sethi gave the first opportunity to write for films. He (Jagdish Sethi) was in the process of making the film ‘Jaggu’, which got released in 1952. He introduced Naqsh to the music director of the film – Hansraj Behl. And Naqsh got to write one song for this film.

The lyricist and the MD struck up a good friendship, and Hansraj Behl called upon Naqsh to write for him again in ‘Pensioner’ (1954) and ‘Mast Qalandar’ (1955). And so the career train started to move, albeit quite slowly. In 1955, he got his first independent assignment as a a lyricist for the film ‘Teen Sardar (1955), for which he wrote 6 songs. In ones and twos, songs written by him started getting popular. However, recognition as an impressive songwriter eluded him till the latter part of 1960s.  In 1968 came the film ‘Teri Talaash Mein’. The film did not do well, but its songs became very popular. With music by Sapan-Jagmohan, songs like “Kho Diye Hain Sanam Teri Talash Mein” in Asha Bhosle’s voice, the Rafi rendition of “Teri Awaaz Ki Jaadugari Se”, another one by Asha Bhosle – “Raaze-Dil Hamse Kaho Hum To Koi Ghair Nahin” etc. became very well known.

From here starts the ascendency of Naqsh Sb’s popularity. Continuing from this 1968 musical hit, he found the popular pulse with songs like “Main To Har Mod Par Tujhko Doonga Sadaa” (‘Chetna’, 1970), “Sajaaya Na Karo Phool Baalon Pe” (‘Gunaahon Ke Raaste’, 1970), “Jindagi Ke Mod Par Hum Tum Mile. . .” (‘Mann Tera Tan Mera’, 1971), “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan” (‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Le Chalo, Le Chalo, Ab Kahin Le Chalo” (‘Maan Jaaiye’, 1972), “Kai Sadiyon Se Kai Janmon Se” (‘Milaap’, 1973), “Rasm e Ulfat Ko Nibhaayen To Nibhaayen Kaise” (‘Dil Ki Raahen’, 1973), “Ye Shaam Hai Dhuaan Dhuaan” (‘Ek Naao Do Kinaare’, 1973), “Mere Mann Pawan Sang Udd Chal” (‘Ek Naari Do Roop’,1973), “Do Honth Hile Ek Geet Suna” (‘Nai Duniya Naye Log’, 1973), “Ulfat Mein Zamaane Ki Har Rasm Ko Thukraao” (‘Call Girl’, 1974), “Har Janam Mein Hamaara Milan” (‘Kaagaz Ki Naao’, 1975), “Tumhen Ho Na Ho Mujhko To. . .” (‘Ghraonda’, 1977), “Tumhen Dekhti Hoon To Lagta Hai Aise” (‘Tumhaare Liye’, 1978), “Yeh Mulaaqaat Ek Bahaana Hai” (‘Khandaan’, 1979), “Phir Teri Yaad Naye Deep Jalaane Aayi” (‘Aayee Teri Yaad’, 1980), “Maana Teri Nazar Mein Tera Pyaar Hum Nahin” (‘Ahista Ahista’, 1981), “Na Jaane Kye Hua, Jo Tu Ne Chhoo Liya” and “Pyaar Ka Dar Hai, Meetha Meetha, Pyaara Pyaara” (‘Dard’, 1981) – an many more.

In 2005, when Naushad Sb came on board for composing music for the film ‘Taj Mahal’, then Naqsh Lyallpuri was called upon to write the songs. Again, then in 2007, when Khaiyyaam Sb was scoring the music for the film ‘Yatra’, Naqsh Sb wrote the songs. A journey of almost six decades, that started in 1952 with the song “Agar Teri Aankhon Se Aankhen Mila Doon”, continued into next millennium, with elan.

In 2016, he had a fall, and a hip bone fracture. He was hospitalized in October 2016, and never did recover from this injury. He passed away on 22nd Jan, 2017.

Dhala Din Aise, Doob Gaya Jaise
Jalta Sooraj Raat Ke Gehre Andhere Mein…  (‘Laal Kothi’, 1978)

The song I present today is from an extremely obscure film from 1960 – ‘Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar’, which also carried the alternate title as ‘Black Rider’. The film makes its debut on our blog today. This film is directed by Mehmood, for the production banner of Screen Arts. The cast of actors of this costume drama film is listed briefly as Kaamran, Krishna Kumari, Habeeb, Sham, and Najma. The film has five songs listed, all penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Harbans.

A very delightful song of aspirations of love, it is a lovely rendition by Sudha Malhotra.

 

Song – Maine Dekha Hai Sapna Bahaar Ka  (Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar) (1960) Singer – Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Harbans

Lyrics

maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

main na samjhoon
main na jaanoon
koi bataaye mujhko kya ho gaya hai
jhukti jaayen
meri palken
baithe bithaae mera dil kho gaya hai
dil kho gaya hai
rang aankhon mein jhalke khumaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

chupke chupke
dil mein apne
maine basaa li hai duniya niraali
mere armaan
khil gaye hain
jabse mila hai mujhe bagiya ka maali
bagiya ka maali
haal poochho na dil e beqaraar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

pyar ban ke
aane waala
laaya hai mere liye naghme khushi ke
zindgagi ne
rang badla
ab na lagenge mujhe din pheeke pheeke
din pheeke pheeke
yehi mausam hai mere singaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

मैं ना समझूँ
मैं ना जानूँ
कोई बताए मुझे क्या हो गया है
झुकती जाएँ
मेरी पलकें
बैठे बिठाये मेरा दिल खो गया है
दिल खो गया है
रंग आँखों में झलके खुमार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

चुपके चुपके
दिल में अपने
मैंने बसा ली है दुनिया निराली
मेरे अरमां
खिल गए हैं
जबसे मिला है मुझे बगिया का माली
बगिया का माली
हाल पूछो न दिल ए बेक़रार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

प्यार बनके
आने वाला
लाया हैं मेरे लिए नग़में खुशी के
ज़िंदगी ने
रंग बदला
अब ना लगेंगे मुझे दिन फीके फीके
दिन फीके फीके
यही मौसम है मेरे सिंगार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

is tareh jaao nahin
jaao nahin
jaao nahin. . .

Wish that we could, but we are powerless. We can’t make them stay, ones who have to go away. Jaidev, the master of enchanting melodic creations. His film songs may number just about two hundred. But the impact he left behind him, is incomparable.

Remembering Jaidev on the 30th anniversary of his passing away (6th January, 1987).

Words like ‘tragic’, ‘unsung’, ‘unlucky’, ‘jinxed’ swim through the mind when one considers the life and career of this eminent music director. The only MD in the industry to have bagged three national awards for music direction. And all his life he lived in a one room flat near Churchgate in Bombay – a residence provided by an beneficent music lover. And when that benefactor passed away, his familial survivors reclaimed even that humble dwelling.

He scored one of his biggest successes with ‘Hum Dono’ in 1960. And yet Navketan never came back to him for another project. ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (1963) was bonanza of heavenly music. Yet there was such a serious falling out with Sahir Ludhianvi that they never worked together again. (With one exception – a lesser known ‘Laila Majnun’ from 1976). And this, despite the fact that Jaidev’s music is minimalistic, quite low on instrumentation, so much so that the poet’s words are always in the foreground.

National awards came his way in 1971 (‘Reshma Aur Shera’), 1978 (‘Gaman’) and 1984 (‘Ankahee’). But no big banner or a big budget producer came to his door. The songs of his films continued to be popular and continued to enamour the music lovers, be it ‘Do Boond Pani’ (1971) – “Jaa Ri Pawaniya Piya Ke Des Jaa”; ‘Bhaavna’ (1972) – “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan”; ‘Prem Parbat’ (1973) – “Ye Dil Aur Unki Nigaahon Ke Saaye”; ‘Aalingan’ (1974) – “Pyaas Thi Phir Bhi Takaaza Na Kiya”; ‘Parinay’ (1974) – “Jaise Sooraj Ki Garmi Se Jalte Huye Tan Ko”; ‘Andolan’ (1975) – “Piya Ko Milan Kaise Hoye Ree, Main Jaanyo Naahin”; and more. A patch of good times came in 1977 – 79 with a string of successful big name films – ‘Alaap’ (1977), ‘Gharonda’ (1977), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Dooriyan’ (1979), ‘Gaman’ (1979). But that streak of good luck did not last beyond that.

His work in the non-film arena is no less important and enchanting. His most famous non film creation is the music of Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s ‘Madhushala’, when he got Manna Dey to render this epic poem. The music director in him continued to trudge along –

manzil mile milena mile, mujhe is ka gham nahin
manzil ki justuju mein mera karvaan toh hai

Today’s song has been suggested by our dear Prakash ji, who has also sent in the lyrics. The film is ‘Amar Jyoti’ from 1984. Songwriter is Naqsh Lyallpuri and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. The song is an enchanting expression of the promises of love.

A tribute in the memory of this unsung genius, and a salaam with the words (from ‘Bhaavna’, 1972),

koi waada nahin hai mulaqaat ka
ye nazar hai magar muntazir aapki…


Song – Janam Janam Ka Hai Ye Naata  (Amar Jyoti) (1984) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Jaidev

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchanda)

Missing Films of 1960s – 37
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah so, new year resolutions – just like carrying heavy burdens. It is only so far that one can haul them. Some can lug them short distances, some can lug them for longer distances. And only rarely can one continue to bear a resolution, on and on.

Atul ji’s tenacity is a legend by now. Maybe not all resolves, but at least he has been able to maintain the ‘no-dot-days’ resolution for, now let us see – the last dot-day on record is 7th September, 2016. Wow – we now have a string of 484 days of continued posting, which translates to 1 year, 3 months 28 days. This blog has been updated with at least one new song every day, without a break – for the past 1 year, 3 months and 28 days continuously (the calculation includes the two end dates of this time period). There have been other breaks in earlier months of 2016 itself. There may or may not be a longer unbroken string of days prior to 2016, but that has to be checked in detail. I have not yet completely researched all the periods, prior to this duration.

So, 1 year, 2 months and 28 days – and counting. This one resolution has really stood the test of time and, I am sorry to repeat but I must – it displays Atul ji’s determination and persistence. 🙂

In his post from day before, he also discussed the resolution relating to debut films and yippeee films. Now these become slightly more complex endeavors. To quote an old adage – “great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending”. I am sure you have caught on to what I am leading to. Yes, it is easier to debut films, but it is much harder to yippeee them 😀 😀 .

There still are a few thousand films that are waiting to make a debut on our blog. But then, that is the easy part. One can catch hold of one song of a film, and voila – the debut is accomplished. But then to yippeee a film – well that is a different game altogether. We take HFGK as our reference. But we know that there is a huge share of films for which all songs are not yet traceable in public domain. And so the trudging pursuit continues, for many a film, where all songs are not available. To top this – i.e. to make it slightly more complicated, there is a fair number of films listed in HFGK, where the list of songs is not complete, and there are known cases where we have discovered unlisted songs, and even unlisted films. 🙂

So all this analysis, I assure you, makes for a very fascinating and sometimes even intriguing journey ahead. . .
All Aboard ??

🙂  🙂  🙂

And so pitching in for a the debut films – at least one-a-day. Now that brings up another interesting thought – this should make for a micro-blog within the blog – ADSAD – Atul’s-Debut-Song-a-Day. 😀 😀 Hopefully so. Let us see how far we can carry this now.

So. . . I am sure when you start reading one of the episodes of this series, you can be rest assured that the post carries a debut song. That is what this series is all about. And you must also be aware as to how this series came about. This is my homework assignment, allocated to me by Ben Katie (or Khyati Behn for those may not be familiar with the coding scheme of the Mastermind’s gang 🙂 ). Missing films – implying that this film is making its first appearance on the blog.

Today’s film is ‘Professor Aur Jaadugar’ from 1966. Now this film is one of those obscure productions that came and went without catching any attention. The film is produced under the banner of Tripil Films, Bombay. I am sure the investors meant this to be ‘Triple’, but then the copywriter probably did not have a spellchecker handy in those days. The director of the film is Sultan. Music director – another debut apparently. The name is Sardar Singh. For that period, it seems this is the only film in which this name appears. Other than an unreleased film titled ‘Baghaawat’, that was apparently attempted sometimes in 1960s. Outside of these two mentions, the name of Sardar Singh does not appear anywhere in the Geet Kosh.

Six songs are listed for this film. The lyricists name is listed as Anjaan. But there is an additional noting specifically for this song – the lyricist name is listed as K Malik. Once again, another name for which I am not able to locate another listing, other than this solitary song. I request our knowledgeable readers to please add more information if available, for the music director and lyricist.

The film is of the stunt genre with a cast of actors listed as Indira Billi, Indrajeet, Khursheed, Indira Bansal, Bob, Poonam Kapoor, Dalpat, Prince Arjun, Jilani and another score of names that are totally unfamiliar.

The singing voice in this song is that of Mubarak Begum. This is a nazm, with a structure of three lines per antaraa (so it is not a ghazal). But surely, this sounds endearing, both for the words written and the manner in which rendered by Mubarak Begum. Soft and relatively simple rendition, that makes it attractive.

As I was preparing for this post, I listened to the set of five songs that I have from this film. The choice of this song is driven in part by the fact that this song is already available on YT. Rest assured that the other songs are also very attractive in their own right, especially a lovely duet sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. But more of that as time progresses. Meanwhile, sit back and listen to, and enjoy this rare song, one of the rarer ones by Mubarak Begum.

 

Song – Khud b Khud Ishq Ka Izhaar Hua Jaata Hai  (Professor Aur Jaadugar) (1966) Singer – Mubarak Begum, Lyrics – K Malik, MD – Sardar Singh

Lyrics

khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai
sach kahen aap se. . .
sach kahen aap se kuchh pyaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

aap bhi apni nigaahon ko zara samjha den
is tarah pyaar se mujhko dekha na karen
husn e masoom. . .
husn e masoom gunehgaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

hum jafaa ishq ka dastoor na hone denge
pyaar ko itna bhi majboor bhi na hone denge
zulm kaisa mere. . .
zulm kaisa mere sarkaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

husn ki shaan na jalwon ke tamaashe le kar
hum to aaye hain ulfat ke taqaaze le kar
dil haqeeqat ka. . .
dil haqeeqat ka talabgaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है
सच कहें आप से॰ ॰ ॰
सच कहें आप से प्यार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

आप भी अपनी निगाहों को ज़रा समझा दें
इस तरह प्यार से मुझको देखा ना करें
हुस्न ए  मासूम॰ ॰ ॰
हुस्न ए  मासूम गुनहगार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

हम जफा इश्क़ का दस्तूर ना होने देंगे
प्यार को इतना भी मजबूर ना होने देंगे
ज़ुल्म कैसा मेरे॰ ॰ ॰
ज़ुल्म कैसा मेरे सरकार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

हुस्न की शान ना जलवों के तमाशे ले कर
हम तो आए हैं उल्फ़त के तकाज़े ले कर
दिल हक़ीक़त का॰ ॰ ॰
दिल हक़ीक़त का तलबगार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

A voice, that is as soft and pleasing as cool breeze. And a singing that is most natural, with no efforts for any artificial embellishments to the rendition.  A voice that is not formally trained. And yet, this voice and the persona behind it, have become synonymous with being the first lady of Bangla cinema.

Remembering Kaanan Devi on her remembrance day. She passed away this day (17th July) in 1992.

‘Shehzaadi’ (1947) is a film about which not much information is available online except that it was produced under the banner of Shalimar Pictures owned by WZ Ahmed and the film belonged to the costume drama genre. I had searched extensively on the internet about the star cast and the director but drew a blank. Earlier, I had even a doubt whether the film was actually released.

Today, I am presenting a duet song “Zulm Bhi Karten Hain Aur Kehten Hain Fariyaad Na Kar” sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Mohammed Rafi in ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960). This song has been in my radar for more than two years, to present in the blog. However, I got overtly involved with locating the rare songs from the films of 1940s and share those. During this period, I thought that Rafi fans or ‘Sureeli’ Suman Kalyanpur fans among the Atulites would post this song on the Blog. But this did not happen. So I am destined to present this song.

Today’s song is from film ‘Anban’ (1944) (pronounced as un-bun). So far, only one song from this film has been discussed on our blog in 2011. This is, therefore, the second song from this film. No songs of this film are available anywhere like You Tube etc. Then, how did I get introduced to  this song ? There is a story behind this.
