Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-11
—————————————————–

Welcome all to this post on ‘Sahir and His Music Directors’.

Today’s post is the last post in this series. In this post, I will give update on Sahir’s filmography and the statistics of the songs so far covered on the blog.

Let us take a look on the posts earlier covered under this series;

10 Meri baari re kaahe ko bhoole banwaari ‘Chingaari-1971/1989’ Ravi 04.03.2021

The purpose of the above posts was to take a look on the collaboration of Sahir Ludhianvi as Lyricist with various music directors, and to discuss a song composed by the respective music director from a movie which has so far not been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog.

In the ‘one-movie collaboration’ three movies were eligible viz. ‘Aazaadi Ki Raah Pe-1948’ (MD-G.D. Kapoor), ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’ (MD-Sonik Omi) and ‘Dhanwaan-1981’ (MD- Hridaynath Mangeshkar).
Sahir wrote four songs for ‘Aazaadi Ki Raah Pe-1948’ of which only one has been posted on the blog earlier. The remaining three songs have not been traced or are unavailable as of now.
From ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’ only one song had been posted earlier but ‘Dhanwaan-1981’ was only one short of Yippeeee, so here we took a song composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar from ‘Dhanwaan-1981’ and it was posted on 26.10.2020.

Moving forward we covered another song from the ‘one movie collaboration’ where the movie ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’ was having only one song posted since 24.01.2009.

In the third post we discussed the ‘two-movies collaboration’ with a song from music director Kalyanji-Anandji from ‘Nanha Farishta-1969’ as it was the oldest movie not ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog from this ‘collaboration’. (Here in this scenario, we were also having songs composed by Ravindra Jain from the movie ‘Ham Tere Aashiq Hain-1979’ to be posted on the blog.)

The ‘three-movies collaboration’ of Sahir was only with music director Madan Mohan and all the songs of this ‘collaboration’ were already covered on the blog. So, we moved to the ‘four-movies collaboration’ where we had an opportunity to cover songs composed by R.D. Burman. Out of the four movies of ‘Sahir-Pancham collaboration’, we had two movies viz. ‘Joshilaa-1973’ and ‘The Burning Train-1980’ of which songs were available to be posted. We covered a song from ‘Joshilaa-1973’ as it was the oldest movie pending.

In the ‘five-movies collaboration’ we had two music directors viz. O.P. Nayyar and Khayyam Saab.
All songs composed by O.P. Nayyar had already been covered on the blog long back and we had only one movie ‘Chambal Ki Kasam-1979’ where music was composed by Khayyam Saab, and few of its songs were remaining to be posted. In the post no.5, we discussed a song from ‘Chambal Ki Kasam-1979’.

We did not have any ‘six-movies collaboration’, so we move to ‘seven-movies collaboration’ where we had Roshan and Laxmikant-Pyarelal collaborating with Sahir for seven movies each.
But in this case also we first discussed a song from a debutant movie which was so far not launched on the blog. This movie was ‘Jiyo Aur Jeene Do-1982’ where Sahir Ludhianvi had written lyrics for two songs and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. We covered a song from this movie in the sixth post under this series.

In the next article we again took a song from the above collaboration from the movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ which was already present on the blog.

After this ‘seven-movie collaboration’, we were left with three great collaborations of Sahir Ludhianvi with music directors N. Datta, S.D. Burman and Ravi. All these were more than ‘ten-movies collaborations’.

In the eighth post we discussed the Sahir-N. Datta collaboration for seventeen movies with a song from ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’.

Next collaboration as per the number of movies was eighteen movies of Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration.

From this collaboration three songs of ‘Laal Kunwar’ are pending to be covered, but these songs are not available and it seems that they were difficult to find. We are not concluding them as ‘lost’ hoping that someday somebody will come up with their links.

However, one ‘snippet’ of ‘verses’ from ‘Pyaasaa-1957’ was available to covered which we left to be covered on a ‘special day’ with ‘special post’.

Here we move on to the next ‘big collaboration’ which is ‘Sahir Ludhianvi and music director Ravi’. They collaborated in nineteen movies. In the ninth post we took a song from the oldest movie pending on the blog which was ‘Paisaa Ya Pyaar-1969’ because one song from ‘Gumraah-1963’ has not been traced till date and we hope that this will also be found some day or other in the future.

Taking ‘cinematic liberty 😊’ again, in the tenth post, we covered a beautiful bhajan composed by Music Director Ravi from the movie ‘Chingaari-1971/1989’. And we also took a look at the filmography of ‘Sahir-Ravi collaboration’.

In this series we tried to bring on board songs by various music directors that were yet to be posted on the blog.

And after the last post i.e., post no. 10 of 04.03.2021 the list of remaining Sahir songs on the blog is as given below;

Sno Name of the Movie Year Music Director Remaining songs
1 Aazadi Ki Raah Pe 1948 G.D. Kapoor 3
7 Laal Kunwar 1952 S.D. Burman 3
53 Dilli Ka Daada 1962 N. Dutta 1
58 Gumraah 1963 Ravi 1
78 Nanha Farishta 1969 Kalyanji – Anandji 2
79 Paisaa Ya Pyaar 1969 Ravi 1
85 Bhaai Ho To Aisa 1972 Sonik Omi 3
91 Mehmaan 1973 Ravi 2
101 Jaagriti 1977 Laxmikant-Pyarelal 2
104 Hum Tere Aashiq Hain 1979 Ravindra Jain 5
106 Chambal Ki Qasam 1979 Khayyam 2
107 Chehre Pe Chehra 1980 N. Dutta 4
109 The Burning Train 1980 R.D. Burman 2
112 Jiyo Aur Jeene Do 1982 Laxmikant-Pyarelal 1
115 Chingaari 1989 Ravi 2

Readers might have noted that while discussing the songs composed by various music directors, we have so far not covered a song composed by music director Ravindra Jain.
So, here in this post today, we are discussing a song composed by him from the movie ‘Ham Tere Aashiq Hain-1979’ of which only one song has been posted so far on 27.06.2019 on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. It is lip synced on screen by Hema Malini and Jeetendra respectively.

The words of the song are interesting in the context of this series ‘planned’ by me and the ‘goal’ to be achieved 😊
But still as on today I cannot say ‘maar liyaa maidaan’ as the song goes … though I can say ‘ghodaa-maidaan door nahin’ 😊 and only readers can tell ‘kaisaa rahaa palaan’ 😊 ‘badhhiyaa rahaa ya nahin’ 😊

I leave it here for the song to be enjoyed by readers (a lesser heard song though, may be because the movie was also not successful, I think) …

As a parting gift for today, here is the list of Sahir filmography with respect to the songs already posted on the blog excluding the today’s song; (readers can well guess here ‘what the ‘goal’ is. If it is achieved well and good, and even if it is not achieved, I am satisfied that I tried my best to do something … now leaving it to the ‘powers’ beyond my control 😊)
(I am thankful to Atul ji and Sudhir ji for giving me this opportunity to do this write-ups and also I am thankful to all readers of this blog who have read this posts and given their feedback with comments) …

Dev Anand – 97th Birth Anniversary
—————————————————–
Dharamdev Pishorimal Anand (26 September 1923 – 3 December 2011), is the full name of the dashing, debonair yet chocolate hero of the 50’s, also nicknamed as the ever green actor, he was a hero, director, producer and what not. He is known for never say die attitude and being a gentleman of the old world sense. He formed a trio of superstars with Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor in the black n white era.

He was like a shining star which kept shining when all his neighbour, were laid down by age, health and simply lack of motivation. In the old ways, the culture of the film industry was about respect of seniors, treating others including junior artists, with respect and values which were based on humanity and equality in opportunities etc. The background of Dev Anand is an educated family of means. Plus that was an erawhen people with means had rich tastes and it converted into their conduct and dealing with fellow human beings. I have no knowledge how charitable or not Dev Anand himself was, because charity is not just sharing of monetary wealth, but sharing of positivity and knowledge also amounts of charity. Of course, there are people with such meanness in their makeup they will not lift an eyebrow, to facilitate someone else. And if such a person did lift an eyebrow, and someone else was slightly benefitted from it, the former will not like it. Ah…. I don’t know where I am going with this, but this is not towards Dev Anand.

I have recently seen his movies, “Kaala Bazaar” “Manzil” and “Kaala Paani” on youtube. Other unforgettable movie are such classics as “Guide”, “Tere Ghar Ke Saamne , “Jewel theif”, etc. I have read the Wikipedia page on Dev Anand. As I read through it, things got curious, as there is not filmography there. Very few films are mentioned, some of them I am yet to see. Zeenat Aman finds a mention as being discovered by him, but there is no mention of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. Also I found amiss the mention of his brothers Vijay Anand and Chetan Anand who were instrumental in his life and career. No mention of his great equation with SDB-RDB and Kishore Kumar.

There is also this line :
“Guru Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Pran, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Nargis, Kishore Kumar, S.D. Burman and R.D. Burman were his closest friends from the film industry.” If a man is known by the company he keeps, than there are no better examples.

The song I am presenting as a tribute to Dev Anand on his 97th birth anniversary is from the film “Amir Garib” (1974). The song comprises of two separate solos, by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, which are the mirror images of each other. The song picturization and the lyrics are also mirroring each other. Both songs are picturised on Dev Anand and Hema malini, singing the two solos. With colourful clothes, a beach, an open jeep on the beach, than the Swimming pool at the Sun & Sand just beyond the Juhubeach(Common in both songs, with extra’s looking like Europeans in colourful swim suits) and a park road with a tonga ride. This is a beach song, tonga song, car song swimming pool song, teasing song, pacifying song all rolled into one.

About version songs which are mirror image of each other, I can recall one song from the film “Himalaya ki god mein”
.
The following three songs from “Ameer Gareeb”(1974)are already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Mere pyaale mein sharaab daal de phir dekh tamaasha 21 June 2009
Main aaya hoon leke saaz haathon mein 12 August 2012
Kahin janaab ko mera to intezaar nahin 3 December 2018

The post is by Peevesie’s Mom which has a synopsis of the film. Another trivia is that the first song from this movie appeared on the blog as early as 21.06.2009, within its first year.

64th Birthday of Ranjeeta Kaur – 22.09.2020
———————————————————
I wish life could be just a song for the road just like this song on a motorcycle. A song heard in childhood, mainly on radio. In 1980 we had a T.V. at home, but that was only aired in the evening. The radio could be heard during the day also, but they were on air for specific hours only, be it “vividh bharati” or “All india Radio”, of which urdu service was the one for film songs. All these years the lyrics of the song complete with the first stanza have stayed in the memory. After the advent of youtube, I may have looked up this song too alongwith many other old songs.

I have seen quite a few films of Ranjeeta while she was active in the 80’s, as I and my mother used to like her innocent, homely looks. Many of these films were B grade low-budget films like ‘Qismat”, “Tarana” and ‘Khwaab” to name a few. She was paired with Mithun Chakrovorty in these films. I was under the impression that “Ankhiyon ke jharoke se”(1978) was a debut film for her, whereas she had appeared in the hit film “Laila Majnu” in 1976, opposite Rishi Kapoor. Both these are notable films of her career. But there after she appeared in few A grade films in bit roles like ‘‘Rajput”, “Satte Pe Satta” and “Krodhi”. Films like “Ham se Badhkar kaun”, “Aap to aise na the”, “Ustadi Ustad se” and “Tarana” are all seen and forgotten films.

As Ranjeeta Kaur turns 64 today, I am presenting this happy romantic song where she is singing this duet on motorcycle and the beach. The name of the film is “Khwaab”(1980) and singers are Hemlata and Yasudas. The lyricist and music director is Ravindra Jain.

Two songs from the film are posted.
Tu hi wo haseen hai
Ek aas liye vishwaas liye

“Khwaab” is one of its kind title as I could find no other film with the title as ‘Khwab” or ‘Khwaab”. The word means dream, and this year 2020 is turning out like a bad dream. I am sure all of us have had this feeling that we are asleep and embroiled in a bad dream, and hope fervently that we will wake up soon and this whole tragic crisis will disappear. Hope that it will dissolve like a bad dream, is soon forgotten.

Let us go to the song, which I would have categorized as a “in the family way songs” seeing the words of first stanza, but this one is not such a song. I have a few songs for this category in mind. Let us see when I get around to those songs. They are mostly 80’s/90’s songs, so this can be a precursor to that series.

This song starts with the urdu alphabet ‘khai’ making it one of rare songs for ‘antakshari” 🙂 . Only other song I can remember is “khwaab ho tum ya koyi haqeeqat kaun ho tum batlaao……..”. Not that most people bother with the fine distinction between the ‘kh’ of “khilauna” and ‘kh’ of ‘Khwaab’. I can wish all I want for a way of distinguishing it in the English script, with a dot or some such thing. Rekhta.com has adopted an entirely different way of spelling the urdu /hindi words in English script, which is rather complicated even for someone like me. Urdu is a language with fewest dictionary words. Sometimes the same word is used for different meanings in different situation. One example is the word “taarikh” which means “date” and history, but not inclusive. Then there is the confusion with ‘q’ and ‘k’.

Common words where K is correct are :
Mushkil – difficulty
Ashk – tear (aansoo)
Rashk – envy
Shak – doubt
Kalaam – spoken word or talk
Shikwa – grievance
Shikayat – complaint
Shaukat – power or dignity

Q is appropriate here :
Qalam – pen
Ishq – love
Raqs – dance
Qalb – heart
Sadaqah – charity (sort of)
Beqaraar – restless, disturbed
Shauq – deep interest, zeal
Qataar – line, queue or array
Iqraar – acceptance or agree, promise

And there is added complication of words where ‘Q’ is compulsorily written as ‘que’ as it is done in ‘Ishque’ or ‘aashiqui’ or some names such as siddique and taarique. I have not gotten to two different alphabet with different sounds for whom the alphabet ‘t’ is used. The ‘t’ of ‘taara’ is different from the ‘t’ of ‘totaa’. There is confusion galore for the untutored. So we let it be, the ‘no pain no gain’ school of thought be brushed under the carpet 🙂 .

Now that I have heard the song two three times, I have realized that it remained in the memory because of its very sweet and melodious sound. It is memorable for the lyrics as well as tune and the singing of both Hemlata and Yasudas.

On this day ten years ago, two songs were covered. One song from “Samundar”(1957) and one song from “Qaidi No 911″(1959).
“Samundar”(1957) has been YIPPEED by now. That leaves “Qaidi No 911″(1959) as the only candidate for Blog Ten Year challenge today.

“Qaidi No 911″(1959) had six songs in it. Four songs (including a multiple version song) have been covered in the blog.

Here are the details of the songs from this movie that have been covered so far:-

Song Posted On
Meethi meethi baaton se bachna zaraa Multiple version song 29-Sep-2009
Pyaar bhari ye ghataayen 9-May-2010
Tere teer ko hamne pyaar se dil mein rakh liyaa 2-Jan-2012

Latching on to this Blog Ten year Challenge opportunity, Prakashchandra has sent me the lyrics of a song from “Qaidi No 911″(1959). this song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

The song is picturised as a roadside tamasha dance song on the beach of Chaupati I guess. Mukri is trying to attract customers for his bioscope, but the potential customers get diverted to watch the dance performance of Nanda. 🙂

The picturistion is somewhat reminiscent of “Don”(198) song,“Ee hai Bambai nagariya tu dekh babua”.

Four films in his debut year. An accomplishment that is not claimed by many other music directors. The year – 1966. And the films – ‘Thakur Jarnail Singh’, ‘Smuggler’, ‘Shera Daku’ and ‘Husn Aur Ishq’. And a sampler of hits from these films – the all time favorite “Hum Tere Bin Jee Na Sakenge Sanam”; the timeless Rafi Sb – Suman Kalyanour duet “Hum Jahaan Hai Wo Maqaam Husn Aur Ishq Hai”; the lilting Mukesh solo “Ae Mere Dil Teri Manzil”; the haunting Lata solo “Intezaar Ka Aalam, Tanhaai Aur Hum”; the racy cabaret number by Lata – “Dil Ka Lagaana Is Duniya Mein”. Songs all made memorable by the lilting tunes mixed with wonderful rhythm and orchestration – the music coming from the mind of Ganesh Prasad Sharma.

Remembering music director Ganesh – he passed away on 28th March, 2000. He was 58.

Ganesh Prasad Sharma, son of the venerable Ram Prasad Sharma, came on to the film scene in early 1960s, working along with the music director duo of Laxmikant Pyaarelal. He was the younger brother of Pyaarelal. His work accompanying his elder brother as and arranger and orchestration expert. As the word got around about his talent, and his ability to create attractive rhythm and orchestration arrangements, and by the middle of the decade he started getting assignments as independent music directors. The rush of assignments was such that he had to turn down some offers, right at the beginning of his career.

Over the years, however, despite creating some very wonderful music for films, his career did not really develop much beyond the initial euphoria. Around mid 1970s, after having composed music for almost 25 films, his career simply faded away. The general opinion is that Ganesh could not get away from the shadow of the more illustrious and successful team of Laxmi-Pyaare. Since he continued to work with L-P also, the quality and characteristics of the music of his own independent films never really stood out as distinct. The similarity between the two threads of music did not allow him to create a truly independent identity for himself.

Today, I present a duet song from the 1973 film ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’. The film is remembered for the iconic favorite in Rafi Sb’s voice – “Dil Ka Soona Saaz Taraana Dhoondega”. The film is produced by the famous BR Ishara under the banner of Co-Operative Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Madhusudan. The cast of actors is listed as Shatrughan Sinha, Rashmi Dhawan, Mehmood (Junior), Iftekhar, Madan Puri, Nadira, Roopesh Kumar, Malika, Chaman Puri, Honey Chhaya, Sapru, Lalita Kumari, Maruti, Kaajal, Rajni, Moolchand, Qureshi, Ranveer Raj, Subhash, Master Sheru, Master Ratan, and Master Chiku, with a guest appearance by Asha Sachdev.

The film has five songs listed. Four of these songs are already showcased on our blog. Today we bring on board the fifth and final song of this film. The song is penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. The singing voices are of Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar. On screen, the song is performed by Shatrughan Sinha and Rashmi Dhawan. The name Rashmi Dhawan is not very familiar as a heroine. Her name can be seen in just one more film ‘Mann Tera Tan Mera’ from 1971, which is also produced by BR Ishara. She had a side role in that film – the lead pair is listed as Anil Dhawan and Rehana Sultana. So apparently, ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’ is the only film of this actress as the heroine.

The song is picturised as a love song, with the protagonists expressing their feelings of first love for each other, in a beach scenario. Shatrughan has a very trim and fresh look in this film,

The post also rings in the Yippeee status for this film. The earlier four songs of this film have appeared in the blog as follows.

A very interesting thing to note here. The first song of this film, posted as far back as on 31st July, 2008, is the first teen song of our blog. And the film is the first teen film. What I mean is that this film made its debut as the 13th song on the blog, and also that it is the 13th film to appear on the blog. 🙂

And further, those were the days when the blog was still following ‘song-a-day’ convention. So it was also the 13th day for the blog. 🙂

Blog Day : 4207 Post No. : 15401

Today’s song is from a ‘C’ grade stunt film – ‘Return of Mr. Superman’ aka ‘Superman Ki Wapsi’ (1960).

Hindi film industry is full of third grade, mindless and cheap copies of successful foreign films and stories. Indian films can not copy the costly scenes, sets and A grade actors for C grade films, so they make do with childish cheap sets, unknown producers or directors, actors who are at the fag end of their careers and overall an easy treatment to films. It is painful to see such films.

There was an era, when even action/stunt films carried some prestige. They were made by reputed or specialist film makers like, Wadias, Mohan Pictures, Imperial, Ranjit or even Master Bhagwan. They used to spend a fair amount on erecting sets or on outdoor shootings. Above all, their stunts used to be real and actually breath taking. Famous stunt actors like Azad, Prakash, John Cavas, Fearless Nadia, Vasantrao and Baburao Pehelwan etc. used to undertake thrilling stunts using trained animals like tigers, lions, horses, monkeys, dogs and even jalopy cars and motor cycles. The audience went to watch the stunts. Story, histrionics or music/songs were secondary.

Superman is a comics character popularised first in USA. The first cinema on Superman came in 1948 with actor Kirk Alyn as the hero. This was like a film serial. The feature film came in 1951 with George Reeves first and then the most popular Christopher Reeves. Many actors have done this role till now. A Superman with extraordinary powers has been a dream for mankind since a long long time. May be, perhaps, the Gods in almost every religion were endowed with such powers in fiction and the mythology.

Indian film makers were hardly to miss such stories. But I find that more than flying in the air or jumping from building to building, like Batman or Spiderman, Indian audiences lapped up the ‘Invisible Man’ theme more. The first such film was made by Prakash Pictures, ‘Khwaab Ki Duniya’ in 1938. Then came the successful 1957 film ‘Mr. X’ and lastly the most popular film came on this theme in 1987 as ‘Mr. India’.

On this background, no wonder, Superman, Batman or Spiderman never captured the imagination or fascination of Indian film audience. 1960 saw 2 films on Superman and one was in 1987. Comparatively, Tarzan films became more popular here. Creative producers combined Tarzan with any and every character of Arabian nights, gave him son, daughter and brought him to city or even Circus. Indian avatars of Tarzan like, Zambo and Zimbo were also popular. these films helped Dara Singh to establish himself in Hindi films. Anyway, gone are the days when action or stunt films had special audience. Neither that audience nor those films have any presence now.

Since the day SFX (special effects – an improved version of old trick scenes) became popular in India, every hero has become a stuntman himself. Except probably Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar, most other actors are stuntmen by SFX only.

Coming to today’s film ‘Return of Mr. Superman’, the film was made by Manmohan Films – owned by the producer, director and lyricist Manmohan Sabir. From 1952 to 1986, he had directed 10 films. Today’s film was his 6th film as a director. Some songs of the film were also written by PL Santoshi, Kaif Irfani and Anand Bakshi. The cast of the film was Jairaj, Sheila Ramani, Majnu, Naazi, David, Ram Mohan, Rajan Haksar, Master Navin and many others.

Music Director of this C grade stunt film was Anil Biswas, who was once upon a time an A grade composer and many other composers followed him as their ‘Guru’. Anil Biswas (7-7-1914 to 31-5-2003) started his career in music in the early 1930’s. Usually, one generation is considered as 25 to 30 years, but in film music the generation period is 12 to 15 years. So, in his career from early 30s to late 60s, Anil Biswas saw two generations of music lovers. It was easier for him to adapt to changing tastes of music from 30s to late 40s. However, to adapt to changed tastes from 50s to 60s, it became difficult for him. The audience tastes changed drastically from 1930s to 60’s music. In the 30s and the 40s , the music was closer to traditional Indian music, but in the 60s, the film music followed the world music trends like Rock N Roll, Twist and other types.

In this stage of his career, Anil Biswas was in two minds – whether to continue what he knew best or to change over to new way of film music demands. He chose to mix the two, but this took him nowhere. This film music was a compromise on his abilities. After this film, he did two more non descript movies – ‘Lucky Number’ (1961) and ‘Hamen Khelne Do’ (1962). At last he retired after completing his last film ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ (1965) and left for Delhi to serve at AIR (All India Radio), Delhi. He gave music to 90 films composing 767 songs. He also sang 59 songs in 31 films.

The heroine of this film Sheila Ramani was one of my early favourites, from the time I saw her with Dev Anand in film ‘Funtoosh’ (1956). Earlier too I had seen her in few films, but she looked quite attractive and glamorous in ‘Funtoosh’.

Sheila Ramani, a forgotten name today, but most of us still remember her in Navketan’s ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954) where she was cast as Anglo-Indian club Dancer – Sylvie. Sheila was born on 2-3-1932, in Sindh province. She was selected as ‘Miss Mussoorie 1948’ and adjudged ‘Miss Simla 1950’. Made her debut as Champa, the femme fatale of ‘Badnaam’ (1952), and revealed herself as a danseuse of charm in ‘Anand Math’ (1952). She was one of the few Sindhi actresses besides Sadhana, who made it big in Bollywood. She was mostly seen as upper class mod girl in the 50s, a role she enacted to perfection all through that swinging era in films like V Shantaram’s ‘Teen Batti Chaar Raasta’ (1953), Sheikh Mukhtar’s ‘Mangu’ (1954), ‘Meenar’ (1954), ‘Railway Platform’ (1955), and ‘Funtoosh’ (1956).

Her Uncle Sheikh Latif alias Lachchu was a famous Pakistani producer who produced films like ‘Pattan’ (1955), ‘Khizan Kai Baad’ (1955), ‘Darbar-e-Habib’ (1956) etc. Sheila visited Karachi – Pakistan on the request of her uncle, to play the lead in Pakistani film ‘Anokhi’ (1956). The film was based on Hollywood’s ‘Fabulous Senorita’. “Gaadi Ko Chalana Babu, Zara Halkey Halkey Halkey, Zara Dil Ka Jaam Na Chalkey” sung by Zubaida Khanum was the popular song from the film which did modest to good business in Pakistan. The movie’s great music was composed jointly by Timir Baran (a Bengali who came from India for this purpose) and Hassan Latif. Sheila went back to India and remained as a middle-of-the-range performer in Bombay films. In the later part of her career, she was reduced to obscure films with titles that sounded like ‘Jungle King’ (1959), and ‘The Return of Superman’ (1960). In all, she acted in 24 films. Her last film was ‘Awaara Ladki’ (1967).

Sheila was very fond of sports especially football and swimming. Ballroom dancing was a virtual addiction for her and she used to go out for dancing as often as she could. Sheila was 5 feet four inches tall, and was so fastidious that any dress she would wear won’t be repeated for six months to come at least.

According to her son Rahul Cowasji, she married late Jall Edi Cowasji (President of Bombay Dyeing) on 31st March 1963 and retired from acting in 1962. Part of her family that remained in Pakistan converted to Islam. She was a Hindu. She used to live in Bombay with her husband Jall Cowasji till 1981. They moved to Khartoum (in Sudan, Africa) for 3 years and then to Sri Lanka for 3 years. After her husband’s death in 1984 she migrated to Australia on her own in the late 1980’s and lived in Sydney and Surfer’s Paradise until health problems required her to return to India in the new millennium. She used to live in her husband’s ancestral home in Mhow, near Indore (Madhya Pradesh). She was frail and bed ridden for few years before her death on 15-7-2015.

Her favorite Hindi film of her career was ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954). Sheila was also the leading lady of India’s first Sindhi film after partition – ‘Abana’ (1958), in which, young Baby Sadhana played her younger sister’s role. (Thanks to Cineplot and Sheila’s son Rahul, for some of the information in this Bio).

One more person from the cast of the film – Ram Mohan – needs introduction to our readers with his short Bio. Ram Mohan Sharma, a young, handsome lad from Ambala, was born on 2-11-1929. He was a graduate (BA) and had come to Bombay in 1945 in search of a career in cinema.

The youngster, who was in his early twenties, with fair colour, curly hairs & sharp features, approached Jagdish Sethi to get work in movies as an actor.  Jagdish Sethi found him sincere and gave him a supporting role in ‘Jaggu’ (52), which he was to make. The movie had very good music, scored by Hansraj Behl & it had moderate success, when released. Later, Ram Mohan got small roles in few movies & in 1954, Sethi Sahab took him in the romantic role opposite Shyama in ‘Pensioner’. The movie did not do well & it was the end of Ram Mohan’s career as hero.

Life goes on and he decided to accept any role offered to him. Soon he was a known name in the film circles. In ‘Do Behnen’ (1959), which had Shyama in double role, Ram Mohan enacted the role of villain, which gave his career a big boost as bad man. Later he came in contact with Sunil Dutt & Nargis and forged a permanent friendship with them. Although Ram Mohan mostly got roles of tough characters, but inside he was soft hearted. He was a member of film artists association. He requested Sunil Dutt Ji who was feeling depressed after Nargis Ji passed away, to help the ‘Have Nots’ of film industry. Virtually an encyclopedia of film industry, Ram Mohan knew every technician, junior artists as well as old & forgotten artists, who needed help. Whenever they both were free, they used to visit the ailing artists in hospital or their residences, to give them moral and financial support. Charatcter actor Rajan Haksar was in a charity hospital, after failure of his kidneys. Both benevolent persons visited the hapless artist to boost his spirit. Ram Mohan was a confidant of Asha Parekh, the kind hearted lady who was president of the Artists Association & they together helped many artists, who were in dire need of assistance.

Ram Mohan was also the vice president of CINTAA (Cine and TV Artists Association) for 4 years and secretary for 6 years. Ram Mohan Ji had high reputation every where and when he came to know about the miserable condition of AK Hangal, he met a political leader and arranged the financial help through Maharashtra Govt, on a regular basis. At the time of bereavement, he made it a point to help the family till all religious formalities were over. Every one in the film industry used to address him as Ram Mohan Ji ,to show their genuine respect to him.

In his career of more than five decades, Ram Mohan appeared in more than 250 movies (the number varies from 240 to 277), mostly in negative roles. He did not believe in self publicity and did his philanthropic work quietly. Ram Mohan was keeping indifferent health for six months, when his pillar of strength, his life partner passed away. Ram Mohan Ji also followed suit and breathed his last on 06th December 2015 .

Ram Mohan had 3 sons and 1 daughter, all very well settled in life. He will always be gratefully remembered by thousands of anonymous film artists who were helped by him. His memories will be cherished by his admirers, who loved his work on and off the screen. Truly, to find people like him, in this era is rarity. Let us hope his selfless work will inspire other persons connected with the film industry to help their less fortunate colleagues and the tradition of Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam set by him will continue. He found an admirer in Gulzar Sahab ,who always referred him as Ram Mohan Ji. Please see the credit titles of Izaazat, where his name is mentioned as Ram Mohan ji. (Thanks to Blog – ‘Beete Hue Din’, and Shri MN Sardana ji, for some of this information).

Today’s song certainly reminds us the type of club music of the late 1950s and early 1960s. This, of course, is not a club song, but a love song between hero and heroine. The song does not have anything to suggest the famous Anil Biswas touch of yore. It is one of those routine songs of those times.


Song – Dekh o babu dekh (Return of Mr Superman) (1960) Singer – Meena Kapoor, Lyricist – PL Santoshi, MD – Anil Biswas

Lyrics

dekh o baabu dekh
o baabu dekh
dekh o baabu dekh

dil ki dukaan se main layi hoon ye cake
marzi ho to take baabu
marzi ho na take
o babu dekh

bahut hai mehngi

dekh ke iski lazzat mister
ho jaayegi ulfat mister
dekh ke iski lazzat mister
ho jaayegi ulfat mister
lekin sun lo shart humari
doge na tum phenk
for godsake
dekh o baabu dekh
o baabu dekh
dekh o baabu dekh

hum to tumse pyaar karega
pyar ka hi iqraar karega
hum to tumse pyaar karega
pyar ka hi iqraar karega
chaahe ho nadiya ka kinara
chaahe romantic lake
o baabu dekh
dekh o baabu dekh

dil se dil ka sauda kar lo
pyaar se apna pocket bhar lo
dil se dil ka sauda kar lo
pyaar se apna pocket bhar lo
beet gayi gar yoonhi jawaani
ho jaaoge late
o baabu dekh
dekh o baabu dekh
o baabu dekh
dekh o baabu dekh

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 40
——————————————————————————————

Hullo to Atuldom

Today is a unique happy birthday date. It is not any celebrity’s birthday. It is the birthdate of our beloved blog Atul-song-a-day which has been nicknamed ASAD and all of its followers are called Atulites.

This is one blog which has brought together a lot of Hindi film music lovers from across the world. It must have started as a one-man’s passion for film music but has now become an addiction for a set of music lovers who are equally passionate about Hindi film music. People who have associated themselves with the blog are going to great lengths to find hitherto unheard songs, finding about the life-stories of those associated with those songs etc. We have our own in-house encyclopaedia who has put a lot of time into researching about long forgotten artists, singers, musicians, and also cleared confusion about artist who had same or similar names and were popular about the same period etc. We have an NRA (Non Resident Atulite) who has assigned Sudhir ji a job of finding movies of the 60s’ decade that were lost or forgotten and Sudhir ji has done a great job of finding at least 112 such movies with about 79 left and these may be really unavailable otherwise he would have dug them out too. In addition to this, he has an ongoing series of songs which were reused in movies and I am sure that will give us a minimum of 50 songs.

Sudhir ji and Arunkumar ji (the encyclopaedia) are just two examples of dedicated contributors. We have others whose craze for Hindi film music has been manifested in the form of reading through the “ancient” 😉 issues of Film-India magazine and sharing knowledge gathered from there with us on the blog. Then there is the case of two resident NRAs who collaborate to produce posts to remember their favourite Sahir on his birth and death anniversaries. Of course, one NRA is more active than the other who I expect will surface in the last week of July as the anniversary of his and our favourite Mohd. Rafi is coming up and his activity will continue on to first week of August. (Hope I am not proved wrong) Of course there are those contributors who surface on the really important celebratory occasion of the blogs’ 15000th post, Atulji’s personal 10000, and birthdays of their personal favourite singers Mukesh, Shamshad Begum etc. I must make special mention of the behind the scene contributor who sees to it that the links of songs posted are working links in addition to sending his farmaishes in the form of lyrics.  So Atuldom is a kingdom of a group with varied interests in HFM and who have their own way of making the blog a unique space in cyberland.

As far as my own film music addiction is concerned, I have mentioned many a times how this blog has affected my way of listening to songs. How I have learnt about the life and times of the singers, actors, music directors, and others associated with movie making. And the most important take-away from this blog is a whole new set of friends who are always in touch 24/7 and who receive my phone-calls with a smile (I can feel it in their “Hello”). But I had an altogether different experience the last time I called Sudhir ji; my “hullo Sudhir ji” was met by a good two minute of laughter, such is the camaraderie that he knew exactly what I was going to say. 😊

For all of the above a big thank you to the blog and the blog master Atul. It is only because Atul ji started the blog on 19th July 2008 that we can call ourselves Atulites or Atulwaasis, who are residents of Atuldom.

Exactly a year after it was born, Atulji posted six songs on 19th July 2009. These represented six movies: two from 1969, and one each of 1956, 1954, 1953 and 1949. Of the movies that these songs were from only one is left to be yyippeed!! That is ‘Sambandh’ of 1969. It has 5 songs posted on the blog, out of a possible 11 or 12 , the last being posted in October of 2011. That is a loooong time ago.

So, to take ‘Sambandh’ a step forward we re-visit it today. The movie was produced by Ram Mukherjee; directed by Ajoy Biswas; had Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar for playback singers for songs written by Kavi Pradeep and composed by OP Nayyar. Atul ji has said in one of the previous posts of the songs of this movie that this was an unusual combination- OP Nayyar setting Kavi Pradeep’s words to tune. This movie had Pradeep Kumar and Deb Mukherjee heading the cast which also had Anjana (this was her debut) Sulochana Latkar, Anita Dutt (looks like Anita Guha, must have been Dutt at that time), Achala Sachdev, Vijaya Chaudhary, Abhi Bhattacharya, Nana Palshikar, Leela Mishra, etc.

The synopsis as given on IMDB is:

Manav Chatterjee’s childhood is spent in a wealthy home where his father, Umakant, is an alcoholic, and his mother a simple housewife, who tries in vain to get his dad to give up on alcohol. This results in differences between his parents, leading to their separation, and him leaving the house to be with his mother. Manav grows up as a cynic, and this cynicism increases when he goes to live with a foster and a very wealthy family. He marries Hiralal’s daughter, Sandhya, and both love each other deeply. But things do not seem to go Manav’s way at all, as he is separated from Sandhya, and after several months finds out that Hirala is about to get Sandhya married – again. Now Manav has changed his name, and is being helped by an unknowing Umakant to try and salvage, what possibly remains, of the rest of this bitter and lonely life.

Here is the list of songs posted this-date-that-year as is the practice in the Ten-Year Challenge,

Gore Gore Mukhde Pe Gesoo Jo Chhaa Gaye Patanga

1949

Bujh Gaye Aasha Ke Diye…Badle Rang Jahaan Ke Shikast

1953

Dil Se Milaa Ke Dil Pyaar Kijiye Taxi Driver

1954

Dil Dil Se Milaakar Dekho Mem Sahib

1956

Apni Maata Ke Dulaare Bachche Sambandh

1969

Saathiyaan Nahin Jaana Ke Ji Na Lage Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke

1969

Hindigeetmala.net (my personal HFGK) lists 12 songs for ‘Sambandh’ of which we have 5 on the blog. Of the twelve, six songs have Asha Bhonsle giving playback, one being a duet with Hemant Kumar. It is difficult to find videos of all the songs that are left to be posted, only audios are available on youtube. Another thing I found was almost all the songs were rather sombre or completely sad. Would love to see the movie to understand why the mood of the songs are so.  And as Atul ji has previously said this is a rather unusual OP Nayyar album with not one peppy number. So, choosing from what is available, here is the Hemant Kumar – Asha song which is a prayer and I would like to know on whom it was filmed.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASAD!!!!!
Thank you Atul ji for giving us ASAD.

There is still a lot of songs left in the ocean of HFM for us to find gems, pearls and corals.

P.S. after writing the post I ran through the movie to see who has lip synced the song. I found that the Hemant Kumar part is no where in the movie and Anita Dutt has lip-synced the Asha Bhonsle part.

Editor’s note-With this song, Hemant Kumar completes 200 songs in the blog as a playback singer.

हे जगत पिता परमात्मा
करो निर्मल मेरी आत्मा
दुख हरो दयालु
अब सुख दो
सब अवगुण मेरे करो क्षमा
प्रभु करो क्षमा
प्रभु करो क्षमा
हे जगत पिता परमात्मा

आss आsss

तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

मिलते हैं किसी को बिन मांगे ही मोती
ओ ओ ओ
कोई मांगे भी तो भीख नसीब ना होती
ओ ओ ओ
क्या सोच के है मालिक ने रची
ये दो रंगी तस्वीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

कुछ किस्मत वाले सुख से अमृत पीते
ओ ओ ओ
कुछ दिल पर रख कर पत्थर जीवन जीते
ओ ओ ओ
कहीं मन पंछी आकाश उड़े
कहीं पाँव पड़ी ज़ंजीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

Blog Day : 4008 Post No. : 15114

If someone pops up the name Jethalal, and asks for an identification, I am sure you will be puzzled to start with. Yes, surely a strange name, that many of the folks interested in Hindi films, will not be familiar with. This name belongs to the dear and popular actor of Hindi films – Sanjeev Kumar. His full real name was Harihar Jethalal Jariwala. Ah yes, now very familiar, right? 🙂

Remembering Sanjeev Kumar on the anniversary of his birth today. Had he been alive, he would have been 81 years old, having been born in the year 1938.

Sanjeev Kumar – an out and out product of stage and theatre, started his acting career at a very young age with IPTA (Indian People’s Theatre Association) and later continued with Indian National Theatre. He was born in Surat. The family moved to Bombay when he was young. After attending a training program at a local acting school, he joined the theatre while still in his late teens.

From the theatre, the progression to films was but natural for a performer as talented as he was. His first appearance was in the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ of 1960, in which he played a very small role. His first film as a hero was ‘Nishaan’ in 1965. For a few years his assignments were confined to C grade stunt and fantasy films. Then he 1968, he graduated into A grade cinema, with a sizeable role the 1968 film ‘Sunghursh’, alongside the likes of Dilip Kumar, Balraj Sahni, Iftekhar, Ulhas and Jayant. This year became a turning point in his career – ‘Raja Aur Runk’ became a runaway success, and ‘Anokhi Raat’ became the debut film of our blog. 🙂

The most powerful thing about Sanjeev Kumar’s performances has been that he never allowed himself to be typecast into any straitjacket. Whatever may have been the stage of his career, he willy nilly took such diverse variety of roles, regardless of the age and the temper of the character. When he was just 22, he played the role of a 60 year old in a stage play, father of 6 children. Positive or negative, he was simply concerned with a sincere portrayal. In ‘Anokhi Raat’ he plays the role of a dacoit. His comic roles are unforgettable – ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’, ‘Pati Patni Aur Who’, ‘Manchali’, ‘Angoor’, ‘Namkeen’, ‘Manoranjan’ . . . you name it. The diversity and the versatility of his performances is what brought the audiences into the cinema halls, just to see his roles. And for a surprising change, the viewing public never rejected him for his variety,

Today’s song is from the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’. From the era when he was still in the C grade stunt and crime thrillers, ‘Gunehgaar’ is the film in which he plays the role of an upright police inspector. His love interest is Kumkum, who later turns out to be the daughter of Sheikh Mukhtar, a wanted gangster. The film takes certain interesting and predictable turns, given the specifics of the relationships, and it ends with note of ‘All Is Well, That Ends Well’.

The film is produced under the banner of Simla Productions, and is directed by R Thakar. The cast of actors includes Sheikh Mukhtar, Sanjeev Kumar, Kumkum, Bhagwan, Madan Puri, Uma Dutt, Neelam, Nandini, Tuntun, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lakshmi Chhaya, Kundan, Dilip Dutt, and Tiwari.

The film has six songs, one of which – “Aankhen Pyaasi Lab Hain Pyaase” is already showcased here on our blog. The songwriting credits are shared equally between Akhtar Romani and Naqsh Lyallpuri. This song is from the pen of Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Vedpal.

The song comes in at the start of the romantic relationship between Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum – it is that initial getting to know each other type of song, performed partly on a beach and partly in a garden. Singing voices are Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. A liltling and a very hummable song. Listen and enjoy.

“Naughty Boy”(1962) was produced and directed by Shakti Samanta. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Kalpana, Omprakash, Sundar, Madan Puri, Kanu Roy, Krishnkant, Kundan, Praveen Paul, Shivraj, Sulochana Cahtterji, Prretibala, Nand Kishore, Masud, Paachhi, Manjula, Samar Chatterji, Kamaldeep, etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The song is picturised as a picnic song on Kishore Kumar and others. Towards the end of the song, we find them ending up on a beach/ sea shore.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other revelers in this picnic song.

The song initially has some gibberish words (or may be words in some other languages). I request our readers with keener ears to help correct the lyrics wherever applicable.

rang yeh duniya badalti hai
badal ja pyaare
tu bhi jeevan ke naye saanche mein dhal ja pyaare

jab tak saans tab tak aas
sach kehte ho yaaron
arrey jab tak saans tab tak aas
sach kehte ho yaaron
hain din chaar mauj bahaar
kal ko goli maaro
jab tak jaisi guzre
arrey jab tak jaisi guzre
hanste huye guzaaro
rang yeh duniya badalti hai
badal ja pyaare
tu bhi jeevan ke naye saanche mein dhal ja pyaare

bolo re
rang yeh duniya badalati hai
badal ja pyaare
tu bhi jeevan ke naye saanche mein dhal ja pyaare

Here is the sixth and final song from “Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is basically sung by Asha Bhonsle with some humming by a male voice. Left to my own devices, I would have guessed that Shammi Kapoor himself has done the humming, but HFGK informs us that this song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Agha Sarwar who was assistant music director of this movie. HFGK also informs us that the record of the song only contains the name of Asha Bhonsle.

I think that the song is an Asha Bhonsle solo but since HFGK contains the name of the male hummer so let us go with HFGK and treat this song as a duet song.

The song is picturised on Jabeen Jaleel who is seen wooing Shammi Kapoor in a beach (Chaupati, I guess).

Vishwamitra Adil is the lyricist.

Two songs in the movie were composed by Jaidev and remining four songs were composed by Bipin Baabul. This song is a Bipin Baabul composition.

With this song, “Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

This song also becomes the 500th song from Hindi movies that were released in the year 1959. “Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) becomes the 50th movie of 1959 to be YIPPEED in the blog.
