Today’s song is from the film Maharani Minal Devi-1946. This film was made by Lakshmi Productions, Bombay, owned by the Director Chimanlal Trivedi. This film was made on a remarkable historical personality from Gujarat.

Bombay film industry has made more than 12000 films so far, on various Genres, but it’s score on making films on Historical Indian personalities is very pathetic. While films on Mughal Kings, Queens and other personalities were made in all decades since the films started talking, not much focus was given on Indian historyHero and Heroines. Not that no films were made at all on them, but if you see its number, there can not be a justification for the large gap.

In the history of India, there were hundreds of such worthy sons and daughters who fought for the country, brought social reforms, did extraordinary work for the people and generally did things for which the country remembers them proudly. Actually,in every state of India, there are Heroes and Heroines who did a lot of good work for the people, in the past few hundred years. Sadly, Hindi films are very poor on this count.

However, I find that regional cinemas are way ahead of Hindi cinema in this matter. Particularly I would quote Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Bangla films in the first list. The second list is of Marathi and Oriya films. Mind you, I am not talking about films on religious personalities and saints like Kabir, Tulsida etc. Even in this category, very few are the subject matter of Hindi films.

People like Rana Pratap, Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar, Rabindranath Tagore, Dhondo Keshav Karve, Rani Chennamma etc etc deserved Hindi films. The entire focus was on Mughals and those who came from outside.The regional films at least did some justice by making films on their Heroes/heroines. Tamil and Bangla films are leaders in this. The strong Regional Pride was the causal factor essentially but honouring heroes is a matter of appreciation. Films on Babar, Humayun, Shahjehan, Bahadurshah Zafar and the likes of them are made in plenty, for obvious reasons, but how many films were made on Savarkar, Shivaji, Rana Pratap, Ashoka the great, Jhansi ki Rani etc ? Leave the older ones. Are there films on Indira Gandhi, Nehru, Gandhi ? A British person had to come here to make a film on Gandhi !

During the British rule – till 1947 – it was probably not possible, allowed or was risky, but since 1947 till date what was the problem ? I feel sad at this state of affairs in making films. Luckily, in the last few years, some enterprising filmmakers have dared to make films on Indian Heroes. I do hope that the situation will improve further and films on Indian heroes/Heroines (there are plenty of them) will be made.

Film maharani Minal devi-1946 is a film on a brave, intelligent, kind and Patriotic personality from Gujarat. I could not get any information on her, the story of the film or other details. Fortunately, I could find a site http://www.streeshakti.com, wherein I found a note on her. here it is to get an idea who she was and what she did….

“Minal Devi or Mayanalla, a famous queen of eleventh century Gujarat, is remembered as an able and just administrator. She was the daughter of Jayakeshin, a king of the Kadamba dynasty in Karnataka and was married to Karna I, a Chalukya king of Anahillapatanawada who met an early death, leaving his queen and young son Siddharaja Jayasimha. Minal Devi acted as regent for her son, who went on to become a legendary hero. An incident described in Rajashekhar Suri’s Prabandha Kosha testifies to the fact that she inspired him in many of his warlike exploits.
She also managed affairs of state, built several monuments and lakes and was responsible for the remission of the tax on pilgrims visiting the Somnath temple. Two lakes built in her period were Minalasar or Munsar near Viramgam and Malva at Dhavalakka or Dholka in Ahmedabad. According to legend, there was a house owned by a woman at the proposed site of the lake Malva, which needed to be demolished to give the lake a regular shape. The queen offered a big sum of money to the woman for her house, but she refused, saying, ‘I shall be famous with your lake,’ thus threatening to sacrifice her life if her house was touched. The queen did not coerce her, showing herself to be a just ruler. This event led to the Gujarati saying: ‘If you want to see justice, go to Dholka and have a look at Malva lake.’

Minal Devi is mentioned with high esteem in contemporary literature. A Sanskrit play entitled Mudritakumudachandra-prakarana depicts a learned dispute between the Digambaras and Svetambaras, the two major Jain sects. One topic in this dispute is whether a woman can achieve salvation. The Svetambaras here claim that women possessing sattwa (identity: an inner quality of goodness) could attain salvation and cite Sita from mythology and Minal Devi in the court of Siddharaja Jayasimha as examples.”

The film had 7 songs written by two lyricists, composed by Saraswati Devi-the music Director. The film was directed by Chimanlal Trivedi. The cast of the film was Prem Adeeb, Leela desai, Durga Khote, Jagdish bSethi, Agha, Sankatha prasad and many others. Director Chimanlal trivedi was a remarkable enterprising person.

Chimanlal Trivedi, was one of the major filmmakers of the 30s and the 40s decade. He was more a Producer businessman than a Director. While he directed hardly 7 films, he produced close to 50 films- all having A grade actors, directors and composers !

Born on 19-3-1909 at a village near Anand in Gujarat he was from a Brahmin family. He did his schooling in Ahmedabad and technical graduation from Baroda. Being an expert in weaving, he took up a job as a weaving Master in Calcutta. Fond of writing, he started writing Dramas, which were staged in Bengal and Gujarat. He was attracted towards Cinema and tried some work in New Theatres. Knowing that the real playing field is Bombay he reached there. He wrote stories for the film Chevrolet-36 and Danger Signal-37 for Mohan pictures.

He established his own production company CIRCO (Cine Industries Recording COmpany) in 1937. By 1943, he had made 12 films. He preferred not to direct his films, but appointed directors like Mohan Sinha for Laxmi-40, Anuradha-40 and Vanmala-41, Balwant Bhatt for Suhag-40 and Madhusudan-41, A R Kardar for Swami-41 and Nai Duniya-42 and Debki Bose for Apna Ghar-42.

He had the art of getting the most popular stars for his films like, Prithviraj kapoor, Chandramohan, Durga Khote,Mazhar khan, Bibbo,Surendra, Jairaj, Sitara, Jeevan, Yaqub, Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Vishnupant Pagnis,Leela Desai, Pahadi Sanyal, Shanta Apte and many others. Even big directors like Debki Bose,Nitin Bose, Kardar,Mohan Sinha, Sarvottam Badami, Nandlal Jaswantlal,Profull Roy, Sudhir Sen, R S Chaudhary, Phani mujumdar, Balwant Bhatt etc. worked for him. From Prabhat he brought Shanta Apte for Rs.1000 pm, and also Chandramohan, Pagnis and Mazhar khan. His friend Chandulal Shah followed his way and brought K L Saigal from New Theatres !

C L Trivedi was an expert in gathering funds for his films. After CIRCO at Parel, he started Laxmi Productions at Andheri, in 1942. He made mera Gaon,Sharafat,Bhagya Laxmi,Kadambari,Tamanna,Inkaar,Mohabbat,Miss Devi etc. In 1951, it was Supreme Pictures, Trivedi Productions was in 1952, Kala Kendra in 1953 and with Chitra Bharati in 1954, he made 13 films upto 1961. Top Composers like Timir Baran,Ashok Ghosh,Rafiq Gaznavi,K C Dey,Saraswati Devi,Husnlal-Bhagatram and Naushad gave music to his films.

In the end, he turned to Stage and started Abhinay Bharati. He staged many dramas in Bombay and Gujarat. Chimanlal always went for big names. He had close relations with Nehru, Menon, Morarji Desai, and other National leaders. His wife Kantaben was a Leader herself. Chimanlal Trivedi died on 25-11-1973. His wife, 3 sons and a daughter settled in the USA.

It may be a coincidence, but Gujarati businessmen like Chimanlal Trivedi, Chimanlal Desai,Chimanlal Luhar, Chaturbhuj Doshi, Chimankant Desai, Chunibhai Desai and Chandulal Shah made sizable contribution to Hindi cinema in the first 20 years of the Talkie era. All names started with CH ( ? ) !

Today’s song is sung by Rajkumari dubey. With this song the film makes its Debut on this Blog.

Lyrics

Ae maina

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 25
———————————————————————————–

“Teen Bhai”(1955) was directed by Hem Chandra for D P Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Nirupa roy, Shyama, Bharat Bhushan, Pahadi sanyal, Hiralal, Nazir Hussain, Gulab, Leela Mishra, Madan Puri,Chandrakala, Bhupendra Kapoor, Menka, Samar Chatterjee, Sarita devi, Colin Pal, Shivji Bhai, Nimbalkar, Shah, Sailen Bose, Shailaj, Kammo etc in it ith
Guest appearance by Pal Mahendra.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past. That song was covered on this day ten years ago, and that song- Jaan gayi hoon pehchaan gayi hoon , remains the only song from the movie in the blog so far.

As blog ten year challenge, here is the second song from “Teen Bhai”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Sudha Malhotra. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Arun Kumar Mukherjee.

Only the audio of the song is available. It appears that only two stanzas of the song are available and those two stanzas have been repeated by the uploader to make it look like a long enough song.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This Week, That Year – 7
———————————–
30May – 05Jun, 2011

Celebrations today – the first item of order. Yes, the two numbers above are telling a telling tale (pardon the pun please). I have been on board now, well, it seems all my life now. Yes, so many years ago. And as we continue this relentless beat forward, I continue to keep marveling – at the fact that the blog seems to have gotten a life of its own and the bandwagon continues to chug along merrily.

It is stated often – the destination is not of any import. It is the journey that has to be enjoyed. And as this blog keeps growing from height to height and going from strength to strength, these minor milestones and even the major milestones have really become a matter of routine. Ok yes – another century, well, this number of days, well, this average of songs per day, well. . .  As I said, just a matter of routine that these stations come and go past quickly.

Ah but the journey – that is where the real joy is emerging. Yes, we had those days when 5,000th and 10,000th songs were such a big deal and Atulites of all shades were pinned to the emails and whatsapp chats as if the World Cup finals were on and both Gavaskar and Tendulkar were on crease, going full blast. I am sure the regulars have those days cemented into memory. The heady heights that we used to cheer and celebrate about.

I do not mean to say that we do not or will not continue to celebrate the milestones. But the drummer’s beat has changed somewhat. The magic of the daily routine is just unbelievable. There is such a serene comfort in the incessant regularity. A trust, a confidence, just like the Sun rising every day (well, some rare days may have clouds also). But then the Sun is there, and will appear in all its glory tomorrow morning again.

I know that most bandwagoneers will agree with me – the blog has become a foundational regularity in life, and whether or not I will open the browser early morning, I know that a new post will be there.

A new post, a new song – another gem to ruminate on today, from the ocean that is the Hindi film song. With the incessant dipping into this ocean every day, and the incessant pulling up of pearls and gems of the first water – one starts to believe. Starts to believe that there is a blessing that has descended on this concept, and the upon the fortunate ones who are connected with it, making our own, and many other lives meaningful.

The heart brims over, the mind stalls, the words slow down – enough been said, and yet, more than that enough still remains to be said. I had come across a quote from Rumi couple of days back – “The closer I get, the more I see how far I am”.

And the bandwagon chugs along. . .

4,700 days, 16,400 posts. And you must consider, the number of songs contained therein are much more – on account of multi part and multi version songs. By my tally of data that we are maintaining, the song count stands today, with this post – 17,010.

And there is still an ocean awaiting us. . .

Ok so, the week that was 30th May to 5th June in 2011 – the summer of 2011. Goodness, one of the slowest weeks I have written about in this series so far. Three dot days, four active days, and a total of 13 posts published. Atul ji, where were you located in the summer of 2011?

Let’s do the numbers first. A total of 13 posts and 12 films are showcased. One film ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954) comes in with two posts.

We had 4 debut films this week. No films got yippeee’d during the week. Of the 12 films that got featured, 7 films have since been yippeee’d. If we factor in the possibly untraceable songs, then we have two more films being Yippeee’d conditionally. Hmm, that is a very good %. Only three films out of the 12 posted, are still showing the pending status.

Looking at the distribution by decades, we have the following data,

1930s   1
1940s   5
1950s   6
1970s   1

Majority focus is on the Godlen Era.

No milestones got breached this week.

Here is the week’s data in table form.

After a no show on 30th May, the next day (31st May) has three films that featured on the blog – ‘Tansen’ (1943), ‘Meena Bazaar’ (1950) and ‘Do Phool’ of 1958. All three films have been Yippeee’d. And that actually posed a problem for me.

On 1st June, again three posts and three films – ‘Bhakt Soordas’ (1942), ‘Bholi’ (1949) and ‘Hyderabad Ki Naazneen’ (1952). ‘Bhakt Soordas’ is now already at the conditional Yippeee status. One song of this film, “Manuva Krishan Naam Rate Jaa.” is not traceable. No record was cut, and since the film is not available as yet, no way to say whether and how this song was presented in the film.

‘Hyderabad Ki Naazneen’ is Yippeee’d. And then ‘Bholi’ from 1949 still has many songs to go.

The problem that I mentioned in the 2nd previous paragraph, is that I do not have an available film from 31st May, to select a song for the post. And so I had to resort to pick a song from 1st June, and that to from, film ‘Bholi’, the only film from that date still having pending status.

On 2nd June, four films were added. ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954), ‘Chor Bazaar’ (1954) and ‘Aakhiri Sajda’ from 1977 have already been Yippeee’d.  The film ‘Zameen Ke Taare’ still remains pending.

‘Mirza Ghalib’ also featued in the post list on 3rd June. Two more films came up that day – ‘Pooran Bhagat’ (1933) and ‘Bhanwra'(1944). ‘Mirza Ghalib’ being Yippeee’d already, ‘Bhanwara’ entered the conditional Yippeee status, since all songs of this film are posted, except for one, the song being ” Yeh Dua Maango Haseenon Aashikon Ka Dum Rahe” is still to be traced. That leaves behind ‘Pooran Bhagat’ from 1933 which still has a lot of songs still awaiting to be posted.

The song that I have selected from ‘Bholi’ for this post here today, is a gem of a rendition by Shamshad Begum. This song is vintage Shamshad. One can clearly hear the ‘khanak’ in the voice, as she goes on to present a song of first realization of love. The words are very craftily woven by Ishwar Chandra Kapoor and the music is by Pt. Gobind Ram. A beautiful creation by any standards.

‘Bholi’ is produced under the banner of Murli Movietone, Bombay, and is directed by Ram Daryani. The star cast is listed as Geeta Bali, Prem Adeeb, Shashikala, Jeevan, Gulab, Khatoon, Nazeera, Sheila, Ishu, Gope, and Nawab. There are 10 songs listed, all from the pen of Ishwar Chandra Kapoor with music by Pt Gobind Ram.

Ok so, I have not used this word so far in the article.

But yes, Congratulations – very much in order.

Congratulations to us all.

Song – Piya Piya Tu Bol Papiha, Din Phaagun Ke Aaye  (Bholi) (1949) Singer – Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – Ishwar Chandra Kapoor, MD – Gobind Ram

Blog Day :

4677 Post No. : 16354 Movie Count :

During 1966-72, I used to watch one Hindi film almost every week-end. I had only two main criteria for selecting a film. First, I should be able to procure a ticket without a long queue either in advance or current booking. Second, the film should be from a good banner which meant that ‘B’ and ‘C’ grade films were out of my reckoning.

‘Aradhana’ (1969) was one such films which fitted my criteria. I watchedit in a theatre during the first week of its release. There was no problem in booking the ticket as Rajesh Khanna had not become a ‘phenomenon’ at that time, a term which one of the film magazines had used for him after the success of this film. While I was acquainted with the names of most of the main actors, the actor who had done the role of Sharmila Tagore’s father was a new face for me. His performance as a distressed father whose daughter has become a widow, carrying her fiancé’s child before formally getting married, had remained embedded in my mind with the song, safal hogi teri araadhana playing in the background. It was after a few months that I came to know that the actor in that role was Pahadi Sanyal, a name that I heard for the first time. Now this sounds surprising for me.

It was a sort of paradox that while I was not aware of Pahadi Sanyal as an actor in 1969, I was acquainted with his daughter, Luku Sanyal who was a lecturer in English literature in my college (K C College, Churchgate) during my college days in 1966-69. It was only when she started reading news in English on Doordarshan, Mumbai in 1972 that I came to know that she was the daughter of Pahadi Sanyal.

It took me another four decades to know that Pahadi Sanyal was also a good singer. That was after I joined the Blog sometime in 2011.

Pahadi Sanyal (22/02/1906 – 10/02/1974) and K L Saigal were contemporaries in New Theatres, both of them starting their filmy career almost the same year (1932). Apart from Bengali, Pahadi Sanyal was fluent in Hindi, Urdu and English. This qualified him to work as a singer-actor in most of the bilingual films (Bangla and Hindi) produced by New Theatres during 1933-40. The bilingual films included ‘Rajrani Meera’ (1933), ‘Chandidas’ (1934), Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935), ‘Devdas’ (1935), ‘Karorepati’ (1936), ‘Vidyapati’ (1937), ‘Adhikar’ (1938), ‘Sapera’ (1939), ‘Haar-Jeet’ (1940). He also acted and rendered songs in ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1933) and ‘Kaarwaan-E-Hayat’ (1935). In some of these films, Pahari Sanyal worked with K L Saigal and also rendered songs with him.

Despite being a trained musician and singer in Hindustani classical music from the prestigious Marris College of Music, Lucknow, Pahadi Sanyal had to work under the shadow of K L Saigal whose songs were very popular and thus sure shots for the box office success of the films. I have seen many films of Pahadi Sanyal and K L Saigal working together and there is no doubt that K L Saigal was a better singer than Pahadi Sanyal. But when it comes to acting I felt that latter’s acting calibre was higher than that of K L Saigal.

After completing ‘Saugandh’ (1942), Pahadi Sanyal shifted his base to Mumbai in 1942. During his Mumbai stint, he acted in ‘Saheli’ (1942), ‘Sharaafat’ (1943), ‘Inkaar’ (1943), Mohabbat’ (1943), ‘Anban’ (1944), ‘Paristan’ (1944), ‘Kadambari’ (1944), ‘Preet’ (1945), ‘Malan’ (1946), ‘Milan’ (1946) among others. He was a lead actor in many of the films in the 1940s in Mumbai and he sang for himself in all these films.

Some time in the late 1940s, Pahadi Sanyal went back to Kolkata and worked in Bangla films but often visited Mumbai to work in Hindi films in the 1950s and 60s. By early 1950s, Pahadi Sanyal had started doing character roles.

While writing articles under the series ‘Hindi Songs in Bangla Films’ for the Blog, I had occasion to watch many Bangla films and Pahadi Sanyal had acted in some of these films. His role as a Psychiatrist in ‘Deep Jeley Jai’ (1959) was noteworthy for his long monologues with few dialogues delivered in chaste English. I have also seen its Hindi remake, ‘Khamoshi’ (1969) in which Nazir Hussain played the role of Psychiatrist but in my view, he was a shade lower in performance than the one by Pahari Sanyal.

In ‘Uttar Falguni’ (1963) and its Hindi remake, ‘Mamta’ (1966), Pahari Sanyal had a small role of a prosecution lawyer. Here he was pitted against the defence lawyer, Bikash Roy/Ashok Kumar. It was an interesting dual of natural actors in the court room to watch. In ‘Alor Pipasa’ (1959), Pahari Sanyal played the role of a senior doctor who tells the story of a mujra singer to his junior doctor (Asit Baran) who turns out be the mujra singer’s son. The narration of the story in a flash back mode by the senior doctor in tight to medium close-up shots shows the confidence the director of the film on the ability of Pahadi Sanyal to give effective facial expressions along with smooth dialogue delivery. In Bangla cinema, some of the character actors like Pahadi Sanyal and Chhabi Biswas, thanks to their acting prowess, commanded status almost equal to that of the lead actors. There are some more such Bangla films where Pahadi Sanyal has given memorable performance even in small roles.

During the 4 decades of his filmy career, Pahadi Sanyal worked in 56 Hindi films and almost an equal number of Bangla films. In addition, he also worked in an English film, ‘The Householder’ (1963).

As a singer in Hindi films, Pahadi Sanyal was active from 1933 to 1946 during which time, he rendered about 50 songs as an actor-singer. His last Hindi film song appears to be wo kahen aap ki do chaah ka inaam mujhe from ‘Milan’ (1946).

About a week back, I uploaded a rare song from the film ‘Mohabbat’ (1943) ‘tum shyaam badariya main hoon mor’ rendered by Pahadi Sanyal which I am presenting here. The film was directed by Phani Majumdar. Shanta Apte and Pahadi Sanyal were in the lead roles in the film with the supporting cast of Jagdish Sethi, Sunalini Devi, K C Dey, Yashodhara Katjoo, S Nazir etc.

There were 10 songs in the film which were set to music by Hari Prasanna Das. Except for Meera Bai bhajan, the lyricist/s for remaining 9 songs are unattributed.

With this song, ‘Mohabbat’ (1943) makes its debut on the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

My last post on the blog mentioned that Moushumi Chatterjee had co-starred Vinod Khanna in a few movies. Today’s song is from one such movie.

“Hatyara” (The Murderer- 1977) was a movie which was directed by Surendra Mohan and produced by Sunil Sharma and J.R. Shah. Its cast consisted of Vinod Khanna (in a double role), Priyadarshini, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rakesh Roshan, as the romantic couples and Pran, Nirupa Roy, Raj Mehra, Chand Usmani as the elders, Kanhaiyalal, Manmohan, Dev Kumar were the spoilsports of the story. The cast also has Abhi Bhattacharya, Shahu Modak (in a blink and miss appearance), Gulshan Bawra and Rajesh Khanna in a special appearance. Pradeep Kumar, Mehmood and Laxmi Chhaya in guest appearances.

Pran and Predeep Kumar played bandits, who accidentally kill a man leaving his wife and son destitute. This sets Daulat Singh (Pran) thinking that it is easy to kill but difficult to rectify the “PAAP”. He surrenders and reforms. He returns from jail to a family of grownup children who are in love and he is only too glad to get the kids married. The hitch or stumbling block for him (Daulat Singh) is his past has caught up with him in the form of Inspector Prakash (Rakesh Roshan) whose mother (Nirupa Roy) recognizes the bandit and refuses to get her son married to a bandit’s daughter. The rest of the story is run-of-the-mill where the families go through the twists and turns that are scripted into the story before the movie ends with the bandit’s grandson being awarded a bravery medal as he (a cop) was instrumental in capturing dacoits.

The titles of the movie says that Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mehmood, Johnny jr. and Shahid Bijnori are the playback singers used for songs written by Visweswar Sharma, Vithalbhai Patel and Shahid Bijnori. Kalyanji Anandji were the music directors assisted by Anil Mohile, Frank and Babla.

27th April is the fourth remembrance day of the very handsome, smart, good looking (his fans can choose the adjective they like) Vinod Khanna. He was a moderately good dancer, emoted well, had a good physique; may not have been like the 6-pack sporting modern youngsters but still well built. He also produced a few movies :- the 1974 release “Farebi” (various sites are calling this movie ‘The Cheat’) was produced by Pramod Khanna so we can say it was Vinld Khanna’s own production and “Himalay Putra” to launch his son Akshaye Khanna in 1997. I don’t know if today’s movie “Hatyara” was his production but the movie opens by paying homage to Smt. Kamladevi Khanna and we know that Vinod Khanna’s mother’s name was Kamla. He began his career playing a small role in Manoj Kumar’s ‘Purab Aur Paschim’; Shammi Kapoor starrer ‘Jaane Anjaane’; villain in Rajesh Khanna’s ‘Aan Milo Sajna’; there were many such movies. He was appreciated in ‘Mere Apne’, ‘Achanak’, ‘Inkaar’, etc. He made a good pair with Amitabh in ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Parvarish’, ‘Khoon Pasina’, ‘Her Pheri’, etc. We saw him share screen space with Dharmendra in “Mera Gaon Mera Desh’, ‘The Burning Train’, ‘Rajput’, and many others. Similarly he was there with Shatrughan Sinha, Jeetendra, Rishi Kapoor, etc and all the actresses of the 70s and 80s have acted with him- that list is long too.

Today’s song shows him dancing with Moushumi Chatterjee at his and his sister Priyadarshini’s engagement. We have the elders of the village as audience. Towards the end of the song Nirupa Roy makes her entrance and I suppose that is where the story of the movie takes a turn. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar and written by Vitthalbhai Patel.

waise main bhi toh

karta hoon tujhko pyaar
lekin kab tak karoonga tera intezaar
lekin kab tak karoonga tera intezaar

chalo tu bhi na jeeta aur main bhi na haari
donon ban jaayen prem pujaari

arre tere mere pyaar ka hoga

sone ka chabootra uspe naache mor
arre hum donon kyun na naachen
jab bandhi preet ki dor

sone ka chabootra uspe naache mor

Today 23rd November’2020 is ninetieth birth anniversary of singer Geeta Dutt (born on 23rd November’1930).

She passed away on 20th July 1972 at the age of forty-one only. Reading her life story stirs the heart even today, and the Hindi Film Industry and Hindi Film Music will always feel sad for losing her so early.

Geeta Dutt was one of the legendary singers of yesteryears and sang many for Hindi film, Bengali films. Also, she sang many non-filmy Hindi and Bengali songs.

I will not go into her detailed biography or whatever has been written about her on this blog earlier. And, also, I will not mention her songs which are my favorite and those I like very much. That will be a long list. Today I would only like to pay my tributes to her with a song from an unreleased movie ‘Hamraaz’.

This movie is said to be made somewhere in between ‘1941-1950’.

I had come across songs of this movie in 2014 and had then shared fours songs from this movie to our editors then. At that time the year of this movie was mentioned as ‘1950’ on some links and ‘1940’ on others so it was not clear.

However, somehow the movie remains still to be launched on the blog in the ‘rush’ of other priorities.

When I had initially shared the songs from this movie, I was not having its detailed information, but now with the help of HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950) we can have this brief about this movie.

HFGK Vol-II 91941-1950) lists this movie as ‘Un-released’ movie of ‘1941-1950’.

On page number 607 – Appendix-1 Movie number 1214 this movie is mentioned as presented by ‘Rahnuma Pictures’.
However, its star cast and director is not mentioned. Music director is mentioned as Shankar Lal.
Lyricist names are mentioned as Shyam Hindi and Kamran Momin.
The list mentions total eight songs in this movie.

S. No Song Title Lyricist
01 Ga re manwaa gaa Shyam Hindi
02 Ghoonghat mein sharmaaye dulhaniya Kamran Momin
03 Baat kuchh aisi wah hamse kah gaye Shyam Hindi
4 Cham cham chamken taare Shyam Hindi
05 In do matwaale nainon mein
06 Aabaad hai saraa jahaan Shyam Hindi
07 Khushi chaaron taraf chhaayi Shyam Hindi
08 Aa jaa papeehe geet sunaa re Kamran Momin

Some links of the songs shared earlier are fortunately available but for one song that I shared the link is no longer available now.

As mentioned above today we will listen to a song sung by Geeta Dutt, written by Kamran Momin and composed by Shankar Lal.

With this song the movie ‘Hamraaz (UR)-1941-1950 makes its debut on the blog and joins its ‘ham-naam’ ‘Hamraaz-1968’ 😊 on the blog.

Remembering Geeta Dutt. Let us now listen to the song of today…


Song-Aa jaa papeehe geet suna de (Hamraaz)(UR)(1948) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Kamran Momin, MD-Shankar Lal

Lyrics

aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa
aa ja papeehe
geet sunaa re
ro ro birhan rain guzaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa

yaad kisi ki jab aa jaaye
yaad kisi ki jab aa jaaye
hook uthhe man tadpaa jaaye
hook uthhe man tadpaa jaaye
neer bahaaye nain bechaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa

saajan bairee saara zamaana
saajan bairee saara zamaana
aise mein tum bhool na jaana
aise mein tum bhool na jaana
thhaame jigar ginti hoon sitaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa

jeewan naiyya dagmag dole
jeewan naiyya dagmag dole …

Today 9th Oct’2020 is the sixth Remembrance Day of music director, lyricist and singer Ravindra Jain. He passed away on 9th Oct’2015 at the age of 71 yrs (born on 28th February’1944).
On this occasion as a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1982’ movie ‘Bhaagya’ which is composed as well as written by him.

‘Bhaagya-1982’ was directed by Naval Kishore for ‘Baba Movietone, Bombay’. It was produced by Ravindranath Dasgupta.

It had Vinay Kumar, Meera, Sushma Verma, A.K. Hangal, Sulochana, Bhagwan Dada, Birbal, Chandrashekhar, Jagdeep, Keshto Mukherjee, Prabal Sen, Rajendra Singh Thakur, Zareen, Manmauji, Dev Sharma, Meghdoot.

Ajay Bannerjee make his debut appearance in this movie. Jalal Agha make a friendly appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.02.1982.

This movie had six songs (as per HFGK Vol.VI-1981-1985) composed by Ravindra Jain. Ravindra Jain also wrote lyrics for all the six songs.

Kishore Kumar, Hemalata, Yesudas, Amit Kumar, Abhijeet and Rachna, gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Hemlata separately. HFGK mentions this song as two different songs i.e. ‘Koi phool na mahke’ and ‘janmon ka hai pyaar hamaara…’, however from the video (partial) of this song mentioned under part-II the female version appears in continuation after the male version (which might be the second stanza of repeat of few lines of the male version of this song).
(Also, if we watch the video of male version only (Part-1) we can see the heroine appearing at the end of this song and may be the female version starts here?) …

Knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie can throw more light on the movie and its songs…

I have not watched this movie and had neither heard of this song till seven years back when I came across it during my daily song listening browsing session and had shared it then itself, however this remains to be posted and today we are introducing it with the movie ‘Bhaagya-1982’ also making its debut on the blog.

Let us now listen to this song …

Koi phool na mahke
Koi panchhi na chahke
Koi phool na mahke
Koi panchhi na chahke
Sooni hain saari bahaarein
Pyaasi nigaahen
Tujhko pukaaren
Aaja re
Koi phool na mahke
Koi panchhi na chahke

Nadiya ka sunsaan kinaara
Aur bhi gumsum ho gaya
Sukh dukh mein sang jaagnewaale
Kyun tu aise so gaya
o janmon ke meet bataa tu
Bin bole kahaan kho gaya
Teri yaad sataaye
Din raat rulaaye
Sooni hai saari bahaarein
Pyaasi nigaahen
Tujhko pukaare
Aaja re
Koi phool na mahke
Koi panchhi na chahke

Aankh se ojhal honewaale
Dhoondhhta hoon tujhe khwaab mein
Tu hai kahaan jis’se bhi poochha
Chup ho gaya jawaab mein
Thha main kabhi tere pyaar mein dooba aa
Ab dooba hoon sharaab mein
Yahi ek sahaara
Mere ghamon ka chaara
Sooni hai saari bahaarein
Pyaasi nigaahen
Tujhko pukaare
Aaja re
Koi phool na mahke
Koi panchhi na chahke
Koi phool na mahke
Koi panchhi na chahke

Kahin door nahin hoon
Jahaan dhoondhhe wahin hoon
Tu mere dil mein rahega
Tujhse miloongi
Jab bhi kahega
Aa jaa re

Tere sapnon ki raani

Kal bhi tujhse door na thhi main
Aaj bhi tere paas hoon
Mit kar bhi jo mit nahin paaye
Main aisi ek aas hoon
Jitna udaas tu mere bina
Main tujh bin utni udaas hoon
Mujhe bhool na jaana
Sadaa pyaar nibhaana
Tu mere dil mein rahega
Tujh se miloongi
Jab bhi kahega

सूनी है सारी बहारें
प्यासी निगाहें
तुझको पुकारे
आजा रे
कोई फूल न महके

नदिया का सूनसान किनारा
और भी गुमसुम हो गया
सुख दुःख में संग जागनेवाले
क्यूँ तू ऐसे सो गया
वो जन्मों के मीत बता तू
बिन बोले कहाँ खो गया
तेरी याद सताए
दिन रात रुलाये
सूनी है सारी बहारें
प्यासी निगाहें
तुझको पुकारे
आजा रे
कोई फूल न महके
कोई पंछी न चहके

आँख से ओझल होनेवाले
ढूंढता हूँ तुझे ख्वाब में
तू हैं कहाँ जिससे भी पूछा
चुप हो गया जवाब में
था मैं कभी तेरे प्यार में डूबा
अब डूबा हूँ शराब में
यही एक सहारा
मेरे ग़मों का चारा
सूनी है सारी बहारें
प्यासी निगाहें
तुझको पुकारे
आजा रे
कोई फूल न महके
कोई पंछी न चहके

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No.50
————————————————–

Ten years ago, viz on 5 August 2010, the blog had covered six songs from six different movies, belonging to years from 1959 to 1973. Details of these songs are as follows:-

Song post number song Movie-year Remarks
2732 Sajna lagan teri sone na de Duniyaa Naa Maane-1959 YIPPEED (All 8 songs covered)
2733 Raaz e dil unse chhupaayaa naa gayaa Apna Banaake Dekho-1962 YIPPEED (all ten songs covered)

One can observe that the first five movies covered that day have already been YIPPEED by now. That leaves us with only one movie viz “Sabak”(1973), that has not yet been YIPPEED and so this movie is eligible for the blog ten year challenge today.

Song-Mann ka ye panchhi haaye kare kya (Sabak)(1973) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, Md-Usha Khanna

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya
zindagi ye phad phadaake haayye reh gayee
zaalim zamane ne kaat diye par
mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya
zindagi ye phad phadaake haayye reh gayee
zaalim zamane ne kaat diye par
mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya

aag hamaarey dil mein lagi hai ae
phir bhi jawaani naach rahi hai ae
aag hamaarey dil mein lagi hai
phir bhi jawaani naach rahi hai ae
apne kiye pe khush hai zamaana
hum to bane hain sabka nishaana
zindagi ye phad phadaake haayye reh gayee
zaalim zamaane ne kaat diye par
mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya

jaayein kahaan par udd na sakey dil
raah andheri haayye rey mushkil
jaayein kahaan par udd na sakey dil
raah andheri haayye rey mushkil
duniya ke bheed mein hosh kho gaya
milta nahin hai koi raasta
zindagi ye phad phadaake haayye reh gayee
zaalim zamaane ne kaat diye par
mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya

Hullo Atuldom

“Lafange” (1975) was a movie produced and directed by Harmesh Malhotra. It had five songs from which the blog has one song covered. It was under Sudhirji’s series of “Rafi SB -in the seventies”.

But the more popular song of the movie was its title song “log kehte hain, ke hum lafange hain”. That is not the song we shall have today. We will be celebrating the birthday of the leading lady of this movie with a song sung by Lata Mangeshkar. It is written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi-Pyare were the music composers.

“Lafange” was another run-of-the-mill masala movie. It was the story of “beautiful Sapna (Mumtaz) who lives with her wealthy father, Dhanraj (Sapru), and a younger brother in a palatial house. Her father comes across some valuable diamonds and conceals them in a secret place. While driving one day, Dhanraj is killed, but her brother escapes without any injuries, but loses control of his vocal chords unable to tell anyone how the accident occurred, and goes missing. After Sapna wins a beauty contest, she travels to Bombay and meets with a young wheel-chair bound soldier named Gopal, and both fall in love with each other. What Sapna does not know is that Gopal is a fraud, a con-man who is only after her money. Then her life is even more complicated after she finds out that her father was killed by a man named Diwan. Before she could think of taking any further action, Diwan and his men track her down – their goal to find the secret location of the diamonds hidden by Dhanraj – and kill anyone who dares to get in their way.” (Got this story from imdb.com, I have not seen the movie).

31st July is the 73rd birthday of Mumtaz, who was at the peak of her career when she gave it all up after marriage to businessman Mayur Madhwani in 1974. She did make an appearance in the David Dhawan directed “Aandhiyan” in 1990 opposite Shatrughan Sinha as mother to Prasenjit (son of her one time co-star Biswajit.

She was born Mumtaz Aksari to Abdul Sameed Aksari and Sardar Begum Habib Agha both of whom were of Afghani origin who were settled in Bombay. It is said that Sardar Begum Habiba Agha was also an actress (needs confirmation from the stalwarts of the blog). She had a sister Malika and two step-siblings. Roopesh Kumar was her cousin. She has two daughters one of whom is married to Fardeen Khan making her Feroz Khan’s daughter-in-law. Her journey in the film industry is well known: beginning as a child actor, growing up into a dancer, vamp, character actress and reaching the pinnacle as leading lady. We have a few of her songs yet to make an appearance on the blog, this is one of them.
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday dear Mumu.

leke tera naam maine
pukaara hai ae ae ae

samjhe toh kaafi yahi ek
ishaara hai ae ae ae
tera mera kya naata hai
tu saawan hai ae
main hoon bahaar
ud chala panchhi ban ke
mann mera saagar ke paar
ud chala panchhi ban ke
mann mera saagar ke paar
tu bhi aa sang mere
dekh nazaara

ud chala panchhi ban ke
mann mera saagar ke paar

Song-Haaye koi keh de papeeha se jaa ke (Baaraati)(1954) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

haaye koi kah de papeeha se jaa ke
bairi kaahe chhede pihu pihu gaa ke
haaye koi kah de papeeha se jaa ke
bairi kaahe chhede pihu pihu gaa ke

rut saawan ki mukh par haaye kyun
jhoomti ghata mein koi aag lagaaye kyun
rut saawan ki mukh par haaye kyun
jhoomti ghata mein koi aag lagaaye kyun
mere paas aaye wo to
mere paas aaye wo to
kahoon samjhaake
bairi kaahe chhede pihu pihu gaa ke
haaye koi kah de papeeha se ja ke
bairi kaahe chhede pihu pihu gaa ke

abhi khile kali aur abhi murjhaaye hai
ja rey paapi kaliyon pe pade teri haaye hai
abhi khile kali aur abhi murjhaaye hai
ja rey paapi kaliyon pe pade teri haaye hai
jiya chaahe noch loon main
jiya chaahe noch loon main pankh tere aake
bairi kaahe chhede pihu pihu gaa ke
haaye koi kah de papeeha se jaa ke
bairi kaahe chhede pihu pihu gaa ke
haaye koi kah de papeeha se ja ke
bairi kaahe chhede pihu pihu gaa ke
