Today’s song is from a really unknown and unheard of film of the early era – ‘Fauladi Mukka’ (1936).

So far 3 films with this title are made in Hindi. The other two films were made in 1965 and 1985. The 1965 movie was a regular C grade action stunt movie of actor Aazad and the 1985 movie was a Tamil film dubbed in Hindi. It starred Rajinikant. I call him a sophisticated stunt actor, although he is known to have worked in serious social films too. But generally, in the world beyond Tamilnadu, Rajinikant is equivalent to unimaginable, logic-basher, nature-defying stunts which make you not only wonder but also bring you a smile.

It is a wonder that such an actor is treated like a God in south. But then, South has always been like that. Adoring the actors beyond acceptable norms, deifying them and even building temples for them. Once when I was travelling in Tamilnadu, I had seen a Temple for actress Khushboo (it was promptly destroyed by the same fans, when Khushboo made some sensible, practical and logical remarks during an AIDS awareness campaign). Now I hear there is a Temple for actress Namitha !

Forget about actors, but some typical film titles shout loudly about it being patently a stunt film. Can you ever imagine that films like Khooni Darinda, Khoon Ki Pyaasi Daayan, Khooni Jaadugar, Guru Ghantal, Atom Bomb, Bhedi Bungla, Khooni Laash, Madame Zapata, Daryayi Lutera and similar scary but funny title film, being a social meaningful film, showing a dedicated wife, dutiful son and disciplined children serving their grandparents?

The fun is, there is a fixed set of producers, directors and actors in an action film. Moreover, such films used to be shown in some obscure, dilapidated, old cinema houses. When I was young, I remember having seen stunt films in theatres of old city part of Hyderabad, having names like Taj, Delite and Moosa. Yes, a theatre on the banks of river Moosa was named as Moosa Theatre !

Ok, Ok, to make the matter short and sweet, today’s film too was a C grade stunt/action film, made by Wadia Movietone famous for such films. Low Budgets-No Publicity-Big Profits. This sure shot formula of Wadia Movietone prompted them to promote a foreign, daring girl, who was ready to any stunts in films. She overtook all the then prevailing stunt kings like Baburao Pehelwan, Kamran, Dalpat, Prakash and the likes of them and in a flash became famous as Fearless Nadia.

So, again coming to the point, ‘Fauladi Mukka’ was also a stunt film featuring well known action artists like Harishchandra Rao, Husn Banu, Sayani Atish, Dalpatram, Master Chhotu, Shahjehan etc. The MD was the usual stunt film specialist Master Mohammad. The leading lady Husn Banu’s story is very interesting.

Her mother Sharifa was an actress in the 20s and the 30s. She hailed from the Central Provinces and joined the Corinthian Theatre company of Calcutta, in which the famous Urdu writer Agha Hasra Kashmiri was also working. She and Agha fell in love. However during one performing tour, the Maharaja of Charkhari in Central Province, fell for Shareefa. He followed the drama company to Calcutta and bought the already debt ridden Corinthian Theatre company for Rs. 40 Lakhs. This included the entire property and the services of Agha and Shareefa too. Soon they resigned and Shareefa started acting in films.

A Parsi magician named Minoo Kooper (the actor singer Minu Cooper, the mystique, of Bombay was a different person) came to Calcutta to give performances. Shareefa was attracted to him and they both left on a tour of Far East. She went as his helper and a consort. For a year they stayed together. When Shareefa became pregnant, Minoo left them in Singapore and returned to India.

Roshan Ara aka  Husn Banu was born in Singapore on 8-2-1919. She was very beautiful. She started her career in Calcutta (just like her mother), by working in New Theatre’s film ‘Daaku Mansoor’ (1934). After this film, Shareefa brought her to Bombay and she started getting roles in Wadia films. She was working  only in C grade stunt action films. After 1940, she got 2 social films made by Bharat Laxmi films and in 1941 again 1 film each from Bhavnani productions and National studios. However she got only small or side roles.

In 1941, When she was selected for Ranjit’s film ‘Dhandora’ as a Heroine, this was a new experience for her as she had never worked in a social or a comedy movie as the lead actress. All her experience was for stunt films only. Husn Bano acted in 53 films and sang 44 songs in 16 films. She had married Wadia’s director Aspi Irani. Husn Bano worked in films till 1977; her last film was ‘Akhari Sajda and then she retired. She had a big house ‘Shareefa Manzil’ in Dadar, Bombay. On 23-11-1986, her husband Aspi Irani left home for work and he simply disappeared. He was never found and was declared as a “Missing Person” by the police.

Husn Banu was beautiful. She was featured in Lux Soap advertisement in the early 1940s. Leela Chitnis was the first to feature in this ad during early 1940. After that Azuri, Bharati Devi, Manorama, Ratanbai, Shobhana Samarth, Mumtaz Shanti, Neena, Sadhona Bose and Maya Banerjee have also featured in these ads.

Hero of this stunt film was Harishchandra Rao (Kadam). He was born in Bhuj, Gujarat on 11-8-1910. He did his early schooling in Bhuj, but his family shifted to Karachi, due to financial debacle. He did cycle repairing work and completed his matriculation by age of 18 years. He joined a touring film company. Once, while in Bombay he was watching the film shooting in Paramount company. Suddenly, the director offered him a role in the film. Thus he entered the films. from 1932 he did few silent films.

He joined Shankar Bhatt’s Prakash Pictures and worked in their first Talkie, ‘Bambai Ki Mohini’ (1934). He was with Prakash, upto 1939, doing stunt films inside and outside also. He did some films for Wadia too, in between. Finally he started his own company – Harishchandra Productions. He continued to work as actor, director and producer. He sang few songs also.

Some of his films were ‘Daulat’ (1937), ‘Naujawan’ (1937), ‘Rangila Mazdoor’ (1938), ‘Rangila Jawaan’ (1940), ‘Sukhi Jeevan’ (1942), ‘Lehri Jawaan’ (1935), ‘Inaam’, ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1934), ‘Durbaan’ (1946), ‘Laat Sahib’ (1946), ‘Tamaasha’ (1942) etc. He worked in about 42 films.

His brother Chandrarao Kadam was also a stunt actor. He was known as Stunt King. He had his own company – Chandrarao Films. He acted, directed and produced films. The brothers were friendly with Master Bhagwan and gave him preference in their films, till Bhagwan started his own company- Jagriti films. Later on Chandrarao floated his own Chandivali Studio in Bombay suburb, which is still actively run by his progeny.

The film ‘Fauladi Mukka’ had only 5 songs. Listen to today’s song. There are some dialogues in the beginning. If you recollect, there was a famous song by Surendra and Bibbo, from film Manmohan-36, which had a prose line by Bibbo- क्या मै अंदर आ सकती हुं ?. This made the song very popular. In today’s song also similar lines are there and these songs were recorded earlier than Manmohan-36, as per record numbers.  may be this song perhaps had been an inspiration for the ‘Manmohan’ song. Just a thought !

The film and singer Harishchandra Rao make their debut on the blog today.

Missing Films of 1960s – 74
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

In 1940, a film by the name ‘Thief Of Tatar’ was released. Then in 1955 came another film titled ‘Tatar Ka Chor’. And after another 13 years, in 1968, came the film ‘Tatar Ki Haseena’. Just like the ‘Alibaba’ of Arbian Nights and the ‘Thief Of Baghdad’, the Tatar subject also seemed to hold a special interest for Hindi film makers for some time.

The name Tatar applies to an ethnic community of people, originating from the mountains of Mongolia. Originally, these people formed nomadic tribes that moved westward from the Mongol region and over the centuries, spread out all the way to Central Asia and Eastern Europe. The name Tatar first appeared in the 5th century AD. Tatars are essentially different from Mongols; however historically, they have moved together across the Asian continent. The Tatar tribes accompanied Genghis Khan on his conquest of the central and south Asian territories. They mingled with the tribes of the Central Asia and the Turkish people. For a period of history they formed kingdoms and empires in the regions that are now known as the Central Asian republics. In fact, there continues to be a Republic of Tatarstan as part of the current Russian Federation. Currently, about 6.5 million people spreading from Mongolia, China and Siberia in the east, all the way to Poland and Slovakia in the west, claim Tatar roots and ethnicity.

Just like Genghis Khan, Taimur and Halaku (grandson of Genghis Khan) – the Mongol kings and warriors who became legends that have fascinated the historians and the literati, the stories of the Tatar tribes have held the same romanticism and their legends, tales and histories abound in the Central Asia. And thus, the interest of Hindi film makers and the production of films listed above.

Today, I introduce the 1968 film ‘Tatar Ki Haseena’ on our blog. The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of Daluat Productions and is directed by Aslam Allahbaadi. The cast of actors is listed as Nalini Chonkar, Shah Agha, Sherry, Murad, Preetam, Radhika, Heera Sawant, Jeevankala, Madhumati, Kumud Tripathi, Sadiq, Maqbool, Prince Arjun, Babu Rajpal, Siddi Baba, Anil, Vijay, Meena, Sarosh, Kiran, Raju, and Santosh etc.

The Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, five of which are written by Aslam Allahbaadi and one by M Yusuf. Music direction is by S Kishan. It seems that this probably is the solitary film that Aslam Allahbaadi wrote for. Another name, simply as Aslam appears in the Geet Kosh listings but whether it is the same as the lyricist of this film, is not known definitely. S Kishan as a music director is known to the readers of this blog. He has about a dozen films to his credit in the 1960s and 70s, including four which remained unreleased. Four of his films are already represented on our blog.

Today’s selection from this film is rendered by Suman Kalyanpur. The music is a reminder of the Middle Eastern melodies. The song is an assertion of love. The protagonist, a lady, is addressing her lover, telling about the feelings of her heart – that she would readily give up her life even for him, that she is restrained and helpless and is seeking solace in his benefaction.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request other readers and friends who may have seen this film in its time, to kindly add more information about this film and this song.

‘Tatar Ki Haseena’ makes a debut on our blog today, with this song. Listen to this poignant rendition, and enjoy.

हो गई तुमसे मोहब्बत जान भी क़ुरबान है
तू मेरा महबूब है
तू ही मेरा ईमान है
हो गई तुमसे मोहब्बत जान भी क़ुरबान है
जान भी क़ुरबान है

दिल के हाथों आज मैं मजबूर हूँ
पास रह कर भी मैं तुझसे दूर हूँ
दिल के हाथों आज मैं मजबूर हूँ
आ आ आ आ
पास रह कर भी मैं तुझसे दूर हूँ
आ आ आ आ

जान भी क़ुरबान है

आप की नज़र ए इनायत मुझ पे अगर हो जाएगी
ज़िंदगी आराम से मेरी बसर हो जाएगी
आप की नज़र ए इनायत मुझ पे अगर हो जाएगी
ज़िंदगी आराम से मेरी बसर हो जाएगी
दिल में मेरे बस यही इक आखिरी अरमान है
हो गई तुमसे मोहब्बत जान भी क़ुरबान है
जान भी क़ुरबान है

दिल धड़कता है मेरा बस आप के आ जाने से
दिल धड़कता है मेरा
शम्मा भी जल जाती है परवाने के जल जाने से
शम्मा भी जल जाती है
दिल धड़कता है मेरा बस आप के आ जाने से
शम्मा भी जल जाती है परवाने के जल जाने से
बेवफा तुझ पर निछावर आज मेरी जान है
तू मेरा महबूब है
तू ही मेरा ईमान है
हो गई तुमसे मोहब्बत जान भी क़ुरबान है

Missing Films of 1960s – 72
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s film of the 1960s being introduced is ‘Badmaash’ from 1969.  A very obscure and unfamiliar film, that is known only by its presence in the Geet Kosh. But I was surprised when I checked out the cast. This film belongs to the Sheikh Mukhtar genre. His films may not be blockbusters, but still they are known only because they are Sheikh Mukhtar films. Even so, this film is lesser known in comparison.

It is well known that Sheikh Mukhtar would be churning out films very regularly, but he never established a production house that sustained. Practically all his films are produced under different banners. This film is from the banner of Saras Chitra, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The star cast of this film reads like Sheikh Mukhtar, Helen, Chandrashekhar, Padma, NA Ansari, Vishwa Mehra, Dalda, Shashimala, Satyen Kappu, Jilani, Chandrakala, Surya Kumar, Bhagwan, Rachna, Jayshree, Satish Vyas, Nawab, Jaswant, Ajeet, Abdul Sattar, Nanak, Motu, and Nandini Desai. The regulars are all there – Chandrashekhar, Helen, NA Ansari. And then of course the lesser known regulars. A nearly new name for that era, which appears in this list is Satyen Kappu. We have known him from his character roles in films of 1970s and onward. On checking his filmography, we find that he makes his debut in this film, in all likelihood. I say it this way, because the available information for character artists is not very accurate. This is the earliest film in which his name is listed.

There are only four songs listed in the Geet Kosh, for this film. All the songs are from the pen of Anjaan. The music director is Avinash Vyas. A little surprising to read his name associated with this film. Not that he does not have other B/C grade films in his portfolio. But most of his films are either religious / mythological or fantasy / costume drama. ‘Badmaash’ seems to be his only stunt / crime drama film.

The singing voice is Krishna Kalle. As I have been reviewing the films of second half of 1960s, I find her name appear quite regularly in songs of B/C grade films of that era. This song seems to be a club/bar song, and the performer appears to be drunk herself. Given the cast of actors, it would seem that Helen is the female lead in this film, opposite to Chandrashekhar. It is possible that this song may be performed by her. Another possibility is Padma, a name that I think refers to Padma Khanna, who was also a leading dance item performer of that era. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about the film and its songs.

Rendering by Krishna Kalle is just too good. These types of songs were a monopoly of Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt – actually more of Asha Bhosle in that period of latter part of 1960s. With this song, one can see the potential that Krishna Kalle had to compete with Asha Bhosle.  But well, history is history. Listen and enjoy this definitive performance by her.

 

Song – Utha Palken Mila Nazren  (Badmaash) (1969) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de

behakta hai
agar ye dil
bura kya hai behakne de
utha palken

idhar to dekh

machli hai nigaahon mein
idhar to dekh

machli hai nigaahon mein
dhadakte dil ko le le
shokh baahon ki panaahon mein
mohabbat ki
nai khushboo
se ye saansen mehakne de
utha palken
ay
mila nazren

ye maana
saagar o meena ka
dilkash daur hota hai
ye maana
saagar o meena ka
dilkash daur hota hai
magar aankhon se peene ka
mazaa kuchh aur hota hai
haseen palkon

naye saagar khanakne de
utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
behakta hai
agar ye dil
bura kya hai behakne de

Missing Films of 1960s – 71
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Although into the seventies now, in terms of songs covered in this series, still there is a lot more to cover. Many more films from the 1960s are still waiting for their debut here on our blog.

Today’s film is ‘Sakhi Lutera’ from 1969. As discussed in some earlier post, the word ‘sakhi‘ here is not the Hindi word with the meaning – a lady friend. The word in the film title is an Urdu word that means – generous, munificent, a person who is liberal in giving to others. As you may be already guessing, and rightly so, this film is about the legendary thief Robin Hood, who steals from the rich and distributes to the poor.

In the annals of Hindi films, there are many films made on this legend. There is ‘Sakhi Lutera’ in 1934, then again in 1955 and then this one in 1969. We also have ‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ in 1965 and then ‘Sakhi Robin’ in 1962. There may be more, I have done a quick search to locate these films.

This film is produced under the banner of Shahnaaz Films, Bombay and is directed by Rustom B Irani. The cast of this film is listed as Azad, Tabassum, Hercules, Chandrakala, Sheikh, Jaani Babu, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Ram Raseela, Habeeb, Sushma, Heeru Anand, Heera Sawant, Malik, Eruch Tarapur, Desai, Pintu, Toto, Haroon, Shafi, Daud, and Muhammad Sandow etc.

Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film. All songs are written by Aziz Ghaazi and the music is composed by BN Bali (aka Baldev Nath Bali). This song is sung by Krishna Kalle. On screen we see a very young Tabassum singing this song and trying to woo Azaad, who plays the role of Robin Hood. One of the films for which the video is available in public domain.

Enjoy this lovely song.

Song – Socha Hai Tum Se Pyaar Karun, Kya Khyaal Hai  (Sakhi Lutera) (1969) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Aziz Ghaazi, MD – BN Bal

Lyrics

socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

dil mein sama ke rehte ho
nazron se door door
ek baar muskura ke idhar
dekh lo huzoor
kadmon pe dil nisaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

tabeer kya ye sach hai
mohabbat ke khwaab ki
jo kuchh bata rahi hain
nigaahen janaab ki
main in ka aitbaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

maine to tum ko chaaha sanam
dil aur jaan se
hasrat yahi hai keh do kabhi
tum bhi zubaan se
kab tak ye intezaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

kaho bhi na. . .

Blog Day : 3592 Post No. : 14344

Today is the birth anniversary of playback singer Madhubala Jhaveri. She was born this day in 1935.

Madhubala was born into a musically inclined family of renowned artists. Her mother, Smt Hirabai Jhaveri and her aunt Smt Sharmila Margaonkar, were both well known singers, and often performed on All India Radio. Although brought up in an atmosphere of music, she was initially not inclined to pursue it as a career. In fact after her matriculation, she joined the JJ School of Arts, deciding for herself that the devotion and time required for classical music training was not what she wanted. But the fate had planned otherwise. In a chance encounter, music director Hansraj Behl heard her sing in a private gathering, and was immediately attracted to her voice. He was searching for a new voice to sing for him in his upcoming film ‘Apni Izzat’ (1952). He invited her to sing for this film.

Her debut was very impressive, and the industry immediately took notice of her. It is said that at that time, the refrain that was expressed in the media was, that “. . .another Lata has been born”. She had an active singing career during the decade of 1950s, and worked with many mainstream music directors of that era. Her voice was termed as sweet and pleasing, and her diction and articulation was wonderful. However, her voice could not sustain the higher octaves, somewhat limiting her range. Her voice was considered a perfect foil for Talat Mehmood, and she has rendered many memorable duets with him.

Her career faded away in the early 1960s. After a couple of renditions in 1961, we then hear her voice  for one last time in the 1968 film ‘London Express’ (no records available in public domain so far). After being in oblivion for almost four and a half decades, she passed away on Sep 11th in 2013.

The song I have selected for today’s remembrance is a solo from the 1952 film ‘Raajrani Damyanti’. The music is by Avinash Vyas and the words are written by Neelkanth Tiwari.

The film is a mythological offering from the banner of Roopkamal Chitra, Bombay. It is produced by Mahipatrai Shah and Anoop Chand Shah, and is directed by Raje Nene. The main cast of actors includes Nirupa Roy, Trilok Kapoor, Usha Kiran, Vikas, Baby Tabassum, Ratan Kumar, Prakash, Basant Kanse, Shakeela, Shakuntala, Uma Devi, Yashwant Dave, and Ram Singh amongst others.

This song is a lovely expression of a heart in love, inviting the moon and the stars to come and light up the life. The words by Neelkanth Tiwari evoke a very romantic ambience. It is a wonderful pleasure to listen to this song.

There is one word in the second antaraa that I am not able to decipher. I request other readers and friends with keener ears to please help identify the missing word.

Song – Chamak Rahe Taarey  (Raajrani Damyanti) (1952) Singer – Madhubala Jhaveri, Lyrics – Neelkanth Tiwari, MD – Avinash Vyas

Hullo Atuldom

Back to writing after a gap of 3 weeks. Lovely three weeks. Spent among the hills of North- East India and South India. Must thank my nephew for insisting that I accompany them. If the Himalayas and its snow-clad peaks are a heavenly sight so are the mountain ranges of the Nilgiris in the south – the common feature being acres of tea gardens. For the second weekend outing to the Nilgiris, I hold my son and niece responsible.

Trust humans to spoil a good thing. Where there was a lot of discipline among the locals at both places; tourists have ruined Ooty as much as say Lonavla, Khandala or Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. Thankfully Sikkim has not faced much tourist onslaught and so is much cleaner. The air in these hill stations are so pollution free one doesn’t feel like returning to pavilion and the reality of daily routine. I am sure our Sadanand ji will be nodding in agreement being an avid traveller and having visited many such pristine locations. Hope I am right?

More about my travels some other time, I will get straight to the topic of this post.

This post is to wish the lady with the dazzling smile a very happy birthday. Unbelievable that she turned 51 yesterday. The dancer who out-dances her co-star without meaning to and effortlessly at that. But she is not all song and dance only; she is great in exhibiting all emotions with her eyes, face and voice. Just like the heroines of yesteryear, specially Madhubala, with whom she used to be constantly compared. Yes yes. I am speaking of Madhuri Dixit (now Nene). Having made her debut in movies through the 1984 Rajshri Productions ‘Abodh’ and tasting success with ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, etc. she made a place for herself among the top-ranked heroines of Bollywood. Her teaming with Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Jackie Shroff (all the reigning stars of that period) was well received by the audiences. In the later half of the 90s she also teamed successfully with the 3Khans. She was lucky to have roles written specially for her as in Prakash Jha’s ‘Mrityudand’ and MF Hussain’s ‘Gaja Gamini’.

As much as I love Madhuri and her movies with their songs and dances, there are some songs of her’s which I don’t approve of. For example, her song in the movie ‘Anjaam’ – “Athraa Baras Ki Kunwaari Kali Thi. . . Choodi Tooti Chane Ke Khet Mein” or the song from ‘Khalnayak’ – “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”; and then there is ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya O Ram ji” in ‘Yaarana’ or even “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” from ‘Beta’. All these songs and some more of that type, which made Madhuri Dixit a dancing-star, are full of double meanings and were lapped up by the public. But there also is a greater number of Madhuri songs which are just as popular and have more ‘decent’ lyrics. For example, “Didi Tera Devar Deewana”, and her songs from ‘Devadas’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Sangeet’ etc. (no, I am not going to list her filmography here 🙂 ). The song with this post is one such song.

It is from Rajkumar Santoshi’s 2000 release ‘Pukaar’ (making a debut on the blog).  The main cast of this film is Madhuri with Anil Kapoor and Namrata Shirodkar and a supporting cast of Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rohini Hattangadi, KD Chandran, Neeraj Vora, Danny and Prabhu Deva (just for a song). It is a well-made film based on espionage in the army and had a love triangle added for spice which gives the central characters a lot of scope to showcase their ‘sacrificing attitudes’. The songs are penned by Javed Akhtar and AR Rehman is the composer. This song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamurty. It is a stage show to celebrate some event in the army cantonment. The song shows Madhuri decently matching steps to Prabhu Deva’s vigorous dance. Anil Kapoor, Namrata and the other members of the cast are in the audience which join in towards the song’s climax.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Madhuri!

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 66# Singer – Mukesh
———————————————–——————–

Just few days back I came across this song that I am presenting today. After listening to it I was feeling like maybe I had heard it on ‘radio’ many many years back. When I listened to it once I just kept listening to it again and again and with every new day this song is growing on me, on and on. The song is from the 1978 movie ‘Pal Do Pal Ka Saath’ and it is sung by Mukesh ji.

‘Pal Do Pal Ka Saath’ was directed by BR Ishara for Kaveri Films, Bombay. The cast of actors includes Shekhar Kapoor, Rama Vij, Shamli (New Discovery), Asit Sen, Paintal, Johny Whisky, Aarti, Tiger, Mishri Lal, Mohammad Ali, Amal Sen, Narayan Gwalani, Hameed, Sitaram, Jasbir, Prakash Joshi, Vijay Nangia, Bhaiyalal Sharma, Kashi Prasad Chaurasia and others.

This movie has four songs penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri, Yogesh, Balkavi Bairagi and Dev Kohli. Music for this movie is composed by Shyam Saagar. One song from this movie had been posted on the blog earlier in 2014 i.e. four years back and it was introduced by Sudhir ji – ‘Chupke Se Peechhe Se Aa Ke’ sung by Rafi Saab and lyrics of this song are by Dev Kohli.

As mentioned by Sudhir ji in his post this movie seems to be an ‘obscure movie’ though it contains ‘gems of songs’ (‘veritable gems’ as Sudhir ji has mentioned in his post) as we can say for the earlier song and the today’s song after listening to them. I don’t remember to have heard about this movie earlier and not gone through its information before. It was only after listening to the today’s song that I searched for its details in HFGK Vol V and also read the earlier post on the blog. This movie was passed by censor board on 07.04.1978.

Almost forty years have passed since the movie and its music had been created, however listening to its songs revives the memories of the music of those years and Mukesh ji’s singing of the many other songs for Yogesh ji. Yes, today’s song is penned by Yogesh.

Since the movie was an obscure movie I think its songs were also forgotten easily. I am not able to locate online, the other two songs of this film. As per Geet Kosh, these are solo songs in the voices of Asha Bhosle and Manna Dey. We have to search for them and need to bring them here for our listening pleasure. Till then let us listen to this wonderful composition of Shyam Saagar and savour the magic Yogesh ji’s words and Mukesh ji’s singing…

Only the audio of this song is available as of now. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs please.

Song – Anuraagi Mann Sab Kuchh Seh Le (Pal Do Pal Ka Saath) (1978) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Shyam Saagar

Lyrics

anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le
anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le
har uljhan mein
hans ke tu rah le
anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le

ik sang tera
parichay gehra
janam janam ka ye naata re
ik sudh kho kar
besudh ho kar
geet tumhaare hi gaata re
do chehron ka tu ik darpan
anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le

mita’ti nahin hai prem ki rekha
toofaanon ke bhi aane se
tripti adhoori
rah jaati hai
saagar ko bhi
paa jaane se
ho na ho poora tera samarpan
anuraagi mann . . .
har uljhan mein
hans ke tu rah le
anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
———————————————————

अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ले
अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ले
हर उलझन में
हंस के तू रह ले
अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ल

इक संग तेरा
परिचय गहरा
जनम जनम का ये नाता रे
इक सुध खो कर
बेसुध हो कर
गीत तुम्हारे ही गाता रे
दो चेहरों का तू इक दर्पण
अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ले

मिटती नहीं है प्रेम कि रेखा आ
तूफानों के भी आने से
तृप्ति अधूरी
रह जाती है
सागर को भी
पा जाने से
हो न हो पूरा तेरा समर्पण
अनुरागी मन. . .
हर उलझन में
हंस के तू रह ले
अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ले

The film that we are bringing to the Yippeee-land today, has been waiting for the final song for the last almost three years. The 1970 film ‘Maa Ka Aanchal’ had made its debut on the blog on 10th May, 2012. Exactly three years later, on 10th May, 2015, the fifth song of this film was posted. As I look at these dates, I am tempted to defer this posting to 10th May, just to complete a sequence. But then I thought better of it. 🙂

Given below is the list of five songs from this film that have preceded today’s post, accounting for all the songs listed for this film.

Jaane Kyaa Haal Ho Kal Sheeshe Ka Maikhaane Ka Maa Ka Aanchal 5949 10-May-12
Maa Hai Muhabbat Ka Naam Maa Ka Aanchal 6129 25-Jun-12
Tere Jhoothhe Waade Ka Aitbaar Kiya Maa Ka Aanchal 9240 4-Jan-14
Bhanwar Mein Meri Naiyya Maa Ka Aanchal 9482 22-Feb-14
Maa Kaa Aanchal Laadle Daaman Hai Bhagwaan Ka Maa Ka Aanchal 11115 10-May-15

The film is produced under the banner of Harintaraj films, Bombay, and is directed by Jagdev Bhambri. The cast of actors, as listed in Geet Kosh, is given as Sanjeev Kumar, Anjana, Abhi Bhattacharya, Leela Mishra, Jagdev, Sheela R, Satpal Nishan, Sushma, Johnny Whisky, V Gopal, Gopal Sehgal, Rajkumar Dutt, Deenanath, Abdul, and Master Ratan.

There is a total of six songs in the film. All the songs are written by Kaifi Azmi. The music is from the mind of Madan Mohan. One song of this film “Maa Hai Mohabbat Ka Naam”, is a solo in Rafi Sb’s voice. The remaining 5 songs are all solos, sung by Asha Bhosle. As it today’s song. The video of this song is not available, although the film seems to be in public domain. So I am not able to comment on the on screen picturization. From the way lyrics are presented, it sounds like a mujra song. But then we already have one mujra song in the film – “Tere Jhoothhe Waade Ka Aitbaar Kiya”. Then possibly this could be a romantic song or a seduction song, I cannot say for sure. I request other knowledgeable readers to please add more information about this song and this film, if available.

The song itself is a treat of sheer poetry. It has two long antaraas, which are beautiful verses with very little repetition of lines. The mukhda itself is just this short title as noted in the post. The verses are an expression of being high on life and happiness – “Waqt Meharbaan Hai” – and so let us drink and be merry. 🙂

This sixth song today has been an elusive and fruitless search online. Of course, I have been marked as being in error earlier, so I cannot claim that my search method is perfect. But as far as I could make out online, this song is not available as yet. I am uploading this today; with the hope that someone may not revert to me with the message – hey, this is available here and here. 🙂

So with this song we come to the final posting for this film, and we welcome ‘Maa Ka Aanchal’ (1970) to the group of films that are Yippeee’d on our blog.

Song – Waqt Meharbaan Hai  (Maa Ka Aanchal) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics -Kaifi Azmi, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

dilon ka imtihaan hai
dilon ka imtihaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

saji hai bazm e naaz bhi
chhide huye hain saaz bhi
saji hai bazm e naaz bhi
chhide huye hain saaz bhi
zabaan pe dil ka raaz bhi
nazar hai dil nawaaz bhi
kabhi nazar mila ke pee
kabhi nazar jhuka ke pee
dikha ke pee
jhuka ke pee
magar qareeb aa ke pee
behak gaya to darr nahin
ke ji ko kuchh khabar nahin
qareeb abhi sehar nahin
ke raat abhi jawaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

ye daur hai shabaab ka
shabaab ka sharaab ka
ye daur hai shabaab ka
shabaab ka sharaab ka
sawaal ka jawaab ka
sila na dhoondh khwaab ka
ke khwaab ki ye titliyaan
kabhi yahaan kabhi wahaan
bhatak na jaaye kaarwaan
kadam kahaan nazar kahaan
jahaan bhi dil machal gaye
sitaare sab pighal gaye
naye charaag jal gaye
zameen bhi aasmaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

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

Lyrics

bholi
surat pe na jaana
kahin
dhokhe mein na aana

peechhe peechhe hai zamaana
bholi surat pe na jaana
kahin dhokhe mein na aana
aage aage hai jawaani
peechhe peechhe hai zamaana
bholi surat pe na jaa..na
hey hey

har ada mein dilkashi hai
mere hothon pe hansi hai
ik shoal zindagi hai
mere dum se roshni hai
mere dum se roshni hai
bholi surat pe na jaana
kahin dhokhe mein na aana
aage aage hai jawaani
peechhe peechhe hai zamaana
bholi surat pe na jaa..na
aa haa

mere din..n..n

bholi surat pe na jaana
kahin dhokhe mein na aana
aage aage hai jawaani
peechhe peechhe hai zamaana
bholi surat pe na jaa..na
haa haa

main jahaan bhi
muskuraa doon
gham e zindagi bhula doon
naghma e dil suna doon
soye fitne jaga doo..oon
soye fitne jaga doon
bholi surat pe na jaana
kahin dhokhe mein na aana
aage aage hai jawaani
peechhe peechhe hai zamaana
bholi surat pe na jaa..na
