Feroze Khan – a name that forever spells flamboyance and style. Almost sounding like the Kingdom of the Pathaan. A popular and likeable persona who had to face near disapproval as a leading man, till quite many years into his career. And that too, when he decided to take on the industry on his own terms, and set up his own production house, delivering one hit film after another.

Remembering Feroze Khan on his 78th anniversary of birth today (25th September).

For almost a decade and half of in his early career, his forays into the top grade cinema is to be the understudy – the second lead, the hero’s best friend, the younger brother – always to end up as the runner up by the time the story concludes. Well, in ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1969), he is shot at and killed while deposing in a court room. A performance, by the way, which got him the year’s Filmfare award as the Best Supporting Male Actor. At a level, this image quite stuck with him for many years. It is almost as if his performance skills are heightened in the face of another skilled and popular opponent. But by himself, the producers at the top line almost as if do not want to gamble with his name.

After about a dozen years of this experience, he sets up his own production house – to deal with the film making world on his own terms now. In an earlier article for the song “Raaton Ki Siyahi Hai. . .”, I have written about his career progression from the late 1950s to his last appearances  in the first decade of the 2000s.

Today, I present this song from the film ‘Tasveer’ from 1966. The film comes from the banner of Wadia Movietone, and is directed by JBH Wadia. As I searched for some details, I locate this very interesting review that our dear Memsaab has published for this film on her website. 🙂 After reading the review, it sounds like a must-see film.

The interesting thing about this film is that it brings together two very ultra long timers in the industry, after a gap of almost quarter of a century. When I saw this co-incidence, I could not believe it myself. DN Madhok has been writing songs in Hindi films since 1932. And C Ramchandra has been on the music direction since late 1930s, early 1940s. These two extremely prolific artists apparently came together only twice before this film. In 1943, they worked together in films ‘Zabaan’ and ‘Bhaktraj’. Then after 23 years, they come together just once again – and that film is ‘Tasveer’ in 1966. And that, after having been contemporaries in the industry for almost three decades.

Both artists are at the closing horizon of their careers. DN Madhok’s name appears just in one more film. Which makes this his second last film. C Ramchandra inning continues, and he goes on to direct the music for another handful of films, two of which are in the decade of 1970s. But nonetheless, it is the closing years for both.

The song is in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor. On screen, a very young and energetic Feroze Khan is serenading his lady love – Kalpana. This one is a typical in-the-grden-around-the-trees song. Feroze Khan, is in his seventh year in the films. Memsaab comments that Feroze Khan is attempting to do a Shammi Kapoor in this film, and, I quote, “. . . he is so FINE, he almost succeeds”. Now that is saying a lot. 😉

So, enjoy this song, and remember this firebrand swashbuckling young pathaan from the 1960s.

 

Song – Tasveer Bhi Dekhi Thi, Aur Inko Bhi Dekha Hai  (Tasveer) (1966) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – C Ramchandra

Lyrics

tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai
tasveer ajab shai thi
aur ye bhi cheez kya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai

mauka bhi hai fizaayen bhi
ye parbati hawaayen bhi
mauka bhi hai fizaayen bhi
ye parbati hawaayen bhi
aur saath mein ye
ae dil. . .
aur saath mein ye
ae dil kya aur maangta hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai
tasveer ajab shai thi
aur ye bhi cheez kya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai

kyon itni mastiyaan bhar lee
aankhon mein kisi ne apni
kyon itni mastiyaan bhar lee
aankhon mein kisi ne apni
wo nazren jhuki rehti hain. . .
wo nazren jhuki rehti hain
jinka ke bol baala hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai
tasveer ajab shai thi
aur ye bhi cheez kya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai

aise jo chup hain yun
hum samajh gaye hain kyon
aise jo chup hain yun
hum samajh gaye hain kyon
zulfon ne jhuk ke kaanon mein. . .
zulfon ne jhuk ke kaanon mein
kuchh in se keh diya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai
tasveer ajab shai thi
aur ye bhi cheez kya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai

तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है
तस्वीर अजब शै थी
और ये भी चीज़ क्या है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है

मौका भी है फिज़ाएँ भी
ये परबती हवाएँ भी
मौका भी है फिज़ाएँ भी
ये परबती हवाएँ भी
और साथ में ये ए दिल॰ ॰ ॰
और साथ में ये ए दिल
क्या और मांगता है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है
तस्वीर अजब शै थी
और ये भी चीज़ क्या है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है

क्यों इतनी मस्तियाँ भर लीं
आँखों में किसी ने अपनी
क्यों इतनी मस्तियाँ भर लीं
आँखों में किसी ने अपनी
वो नज़रें झुकी रहती हैं॰ ॰ ॰
वो नज़रें झुकी रहती हैं
जिनका के बोल बाला है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है
तस्वीर अजब शै थी
और ये भी चीज़ क्या है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है

ऐसे जो चुप हैं यूं
हम समझ गए हैं क्यों
ऐसे जो चुप हैं यूं
हम समझ गए हैं क्यों
ज़ुल्फों ने झुक के कानों में॰ ॰ ॰
ज़ुल्फों ने झुक के कानों में
कुछ इनसे कह दिया है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है
तस्वीर अजब शै थी
और ये भी चीज़ क्या है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है

Today, the 18th of July 2017, is the 5th remembrance day of one of India’s most enigmatic and exasperating film stars. You don’t need to rack your brains too much to guess who I am talking about. It should be pretty obvious – is there anyone more loved, and at the same time, more derided than Rajesh Khanna, ever in the industry? A time was when he was worshipped by hundreds of thousands, and then a time came when the weight of the crown of being the self-styled superstar, became an annoying, nay, a highly dislike-able phenomenon.

Last of the Music Moguls. Not that there have not been more prolific artists and music directors after him. One can readily name a few – Anu Malik, AR Rahman, Ilayaraja. But me, personally speaking, will not put the follow on ‘champs’ in the same bracket. Something ended when he left us, twenty three years ago. Times were-a-changing even as the 1960s played itself out. And he himself was singularly instrumental in that transformation.

With this post, the blog now carries 700 songs by Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

The story of Laxmikant Pyaarelal reads like a dream rags-to-riches story. But it is also a story of hard work and persistent effort. Laxmikant, the senior partner in the team, was three years elder to Pyaarelal. Interestingly, both were born on 3rd of the month, Laxmikant in November and Pyaarelal in September. Pyaarelal is the son of the renowned musician Ram Prasad Sharma. Although active in the film industry since the latter part of 1930s, Ram Prasad did some films independently from 1947 to 1950. Not adept with commercial acumen, his financial status was poor most of his life. Pyaarelal, his eldest son, had to start working as a musician in recording studios at the age of 12, to support his family. The story of Laxmikant’s childhood is even more depressing. He was raised in the slums of Vile Parle in Bombay. His father passed away when he was just a toddler. A friend of his father supported him and guided him towards learning music. With time, his talent shone through, and he too started working as a musician in the film industry.

Remembering Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on the 19th anniversary of his passing away today (25th May).

Missing Films of 1960s – 29
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this post, I introduce another missing film from the 1960s. The film is ‘Khufia Mahal’ from 1964. As I checked out the songs of this film, I find some very lovable compositions. And why not. The music is from the mind of that one another unsung genius of that era – Pardesi. With a career that was limited to just four films, one sees him active from 1960 to 1972. And after that, lost in the dusks of anonymity. Nothing much more is available in terms of information, other than the 30+ songs he has created, some of which are real gems.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 13
———————————————————————-

गाता जाये बंजारा

That is the image that forms in the mind. A distant, unfamiliar scenario. A solitary person trudging along a dusty road that leads through farms and fields, passing through towns big and small.

There is a purpose in the pace. There is a steadiness in the tread. There seems to be an unhurried and patient urgency in the forward movement.

Is he searching for someone, for something? Is he expecting a certain destination? I don’t know. The landmarks, they come and go, the milestones pass by. But he appears not to halt anywhere, never seems to take rest. Just a pause at a milestone, sees it with a searching eye, takes another breath, and then presses on.

He seems to be carrying something, slung on the shoulders. Is that an instrument of music? Or is it something else? What is it, I am not able to make out.
