Blog Day: 4338 Post No.: 15636

Today’s song is from film Raaj Tilak-1958.

This was a S.S.Vasan film from his Gemini Pictures, Madras. Film Raaj Tilak was a remake of the original popular film in Tamil-“Vanji Kottai Valiban”( The youth from Vanji Fort). It was loosely based on the famous adventure novel, “The Count of Monte Cristo”, written by Alexander Dumas and first published in 1844. Its Telugu version was titled “Vijay Kota Veerudu”and the Hindi version was Raaj Tilak.

AVM and Gemini, the two giants from Madras were keen on making Bi-Lingual (Tamil-Hindi/Tamil-Telugu,Telugu-Hindi) or Tri-lingual (Tamil-Telugu-Hindi) films to capture all the three big markets. Southern bosses took pleasure in engaging artistes from Bombay and in return Bombay artistes were happy to work in southern films, because they were disciplined, punctual and worked methodically. Their payments, staying arrangements and the treatment to Hindi artistes was very satisfying.

From the time Vasan’s multilingual Blockbuster, Chandralekha’s success in 1948, it dawned on south producers that a huge market in Hindi belt was available for their successful south films. One after another hit films started from South, like Nishan-49, Mangala-50,Bahar-51, Mr. Sampat-52, Miss Mary-57, Asha-57 and such other films, which were either remakes of Tamil/Telugu hit films or films made in Madras.

During this period, C Ramchandra and his songs were very popular in south. At the same time, his favourite Lyricist Rajendra krishna also had a great demand in south. Rajendra Krishna worked for both AVM and Gemini films. Vasan wanted that Rajendra krishna should work only for Gemini and not AVM. However, Rajendra Krishna continued working for AVM, so Vasan decided not to take Rajendra krishna for Gemini films anymore.

In 1957, AVM’s film Bhabhi became a Hit film. Rajendra krishna had written all the songs for Bhabhi. In 1958, when Vasan Planned to make Raaj Tilak in Hindi and its Tamil and Telugu versions, at the same time, he selected C Ramchandra as its Music Director. That time C Ramchandra was working for film Amardeep-58 in Bombay and Rajendra krishna was the Lyricist. C Ramchandra knew that Vasan will not take Rajendra krishna as a Lyricist for Gemini films anymore. At that time only, P L Santoshi met C Ramchandra. He had fallen on bad days and requested C Ramchandra for his help.

With consideration for past successful association with Santoshi, C Ramchandra recommended Santoshi’s name to Vasan. He also agreed. When Rajendra Krishna came to know this, he did not like it and he severed ties with C Ramchandra. The two never worked together again. The year 1958 was not a good year for C Ramchandra anyway. Lata had given indications that after Raaj Tilak, she would not sing for C Ramchandra. She did only one solo and one duet in this film. After Rajendra krishna split with C Ramchandra, he started recommending Chitragupta, Madan Mohan and others to South producers. C Ramchnadra stopped getting their offers. In addition film Raaj Tilak also did not do so well.

The cast of film Raaj Tilak-58 was Vaijayanti Mala, Padmini, Gemini Ganeshan, Pran, Jagirdar, Bipin Gupta, Lalita Pawar, Durga Khote etc etc. Gemini Ganeshan (17-11-1920 to 22-3-2005), better known in Hindi belt as actress Rekha’s father, started his Hindi films with Devta-56. Then came Miss Mary-57 and his third film was Raaj Tilak-58. He acted in 24 Hindi films. His last film was Allauddin and wonderful Lamp-82. After his death in 2005, two films were released in 2009, namely Shivdoot and Devi Saraswati, both dubbed films.

When I saw actor Pran’s name in the cast of this film, I remembered that Pran had also acted in another same titled film Raaj Tilak-84, featuring Dharmendra, Hema etc. Pran’s first Hindi film – as a Hero – was Khandan-42 in Lahore. he again acted in another same name film Khandan-in 1965. In the 42 film he was the Hero, but in the 1965 film he was a Villain. He did exactly opposite in another same name film. In film Aan Baan-56 ( Ajit-N.Jaywant), he was a Villain, but in the 1972 film Aan Baan (Rajendra kumar-Rakhi) he did a benevolent person’s sober role in this film ! Pran acted as a Villain in film Chingari-55(Shekhar-N.Jayawant) and also in film Chingari-89 (Sanjay Khan-Leena Cghandavarkar).

Pran did role in many remakes of his films. When he came to Bombay from Lahore in 1948, he got roles in films Grihasthi, Ziddi and Chunaria. In 1948, two of his Lahore made films – Birhan and Barsat ki ek raat – released in India. In both these films, he was the Hero, but in India, he started as a villain in his first 3 films. Kishore Sahu remade film Grihasthi-48 as Film “Ghar Basaa ke Dekho”-1963. In this film Pran did the same role as in the 48 film. Comedian Gope had made a film “Malkin” in 1951 (Gope and Yakub). His brother Ram Kamlani remade this film as “Biradari’ in 1966 (Mehmood and Kanhaiyalal). Pran was villain in both the films.

In his 66 years of career, Pran did variety of roles. Besides acting in remakes and same title films, he also worked in 2-3 generations of actor families. In film Rajkumar-1964, he worked with Prithviraj Kapoor. With Raj Kapoor, he did films like Aah, Chori chori, Jis desh mein Ganga behti hai etc etc. He worked with Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor also. In 1973, he worked in film Rikshawala, with Randhir Kapoor and in film Bobby, with Rishi Kapoor. Thus he worked in 3 generations of Kapoor family.

Pran worked with Naseem Bano in film Sindbad the sailor-52 and worked in many films with Saira Bano-her daughter. He worked with Mumtaz Ali and Mehmood. Pran acted with Sunil Dutt and Sanjay Dutt. He also worked with Dharmendra and Sunny Deol.

There was no other actor like him in Hindi film industry ever again.

Coming back to film Raaj Tilak-58, the story of the film was….

The loyal Diwan of the kingdom accuses the Senapathi to have planned the killing of the young prince. The king ,as a punishment banishes him to another country, but Senapati hides in the kingdom itself. One day he kills the king and becomes the ruler. Before dying, the king asks his loyal Diwan to save the prince and the princess. Diwan takes them and runs away, leaving his own wife and children.

Senapati captures Diwan’s wife, keeps her in prison on an island and leaves his son and daughter in the flowing river. Some kind person saves the children and they grow up as Chander ( G.Ganesan) and sister Gowri ( Vijaya kumari). Senapati comes to know about them and abducts Gowri and arrests Chander and keeps him in a prison on the same island as his mother. Gowri dies while attempting to run away.

Chander meets his mother and learns everything. He vows to kill the Senapathi. He tries to escape from the island with his mother, but mother dies on way and Chander is thrown into the raging sea. He survives and reaches Ratna island. The Rajkumari Mandakini of Ratna island loves him. He narrates every thing to her and she allows him to go his kingdom to kill Senapathi. He comes to the kingdom where he meets his father and also princes Padma who loves him. Meanwhile Mandakini also reaches the kingdom. Padma and Mandakini meet and Padma allows them their love, sacrificing her love.

However during the final battle, in an attempt to save Chander, Mandakini dies. Senapathi is killed and peace returns to kingdom. Padma and Chandar marry and he gets the Raj Tilak !

Today’s song from film Raaj Tilak-58 is sung by Asha, Rafi, Vinod and chorus. In the video, one can see Agha, Jagirdar, Shammi and Padmini. This will be the 4th song from this film to feature here.

Hello Atuldom

I am back again with one more birthday post. I was aware of this date- 9th April. For additional reminder Avinashji played my alarm this time. Every year I make mental notes to wish this Bengali Beauty but on the run-up to the date I end up forgetting to write and send a song.
When I shared my experience of seeing the dream girl at Mumbai airport with my friends from school we had a major down-memory-lane session. We remembered who was whose fan at that young age of ours. And my friends were talking of how I was a die-hard Rekha fan and she herself was a Jaya Bhadhuri fan. Actually we were three of us and between us we had Rekha, Jaya and Hema as favourites and the other heroines of those time were also-rans in our opinion. Oh! to be that age again!!! Hope the song with post is liked by my girl-gang.

Jaya Bhaduri (later known as Jaya Bachchan) is an actress who had a naturalistic style of acting in both commercial and middle of the road movies. She debuted at the age of 15 in a Satyajit Ray film in Bengali, joined FTII graduated and made her Hindi debut in the title role of “Guddi” in 1971. This was followed by similar girl-next-door roles in “Mili”, “Chupke Chupke”, “Bawarchi”, “Piya Ka Ghar” etc. She tried to play slightly urban characters in “Jawani Deewani”, “Dil Deewana”, “Naya Din Nayi Raat”, “Parichay”; these characters were independent and had a mind of their own and could make decisions for themselves. Whether girl-next-door or modern, her footing was on-par with the male lead. Her “raat-ki-rani” in “Shor” or “knife sharpener” Mala of “Zanjeer” and Sushma of “Naya Din Nayi Raat” are still remembered fondly. She had the distinction of playing girl-friend, wife, daughter and bhabhi to Sanjeev Kumar. She has played daughter to Dharmendra twice -“Phagun” and “Samadhi”. She had acted in about nine movies with Amitabh as co-star before she took a sabbatical to look after her family.

During her days as lead actress there was one movie with an unusual casting- Gaai aur Gori. I have not seen the movie but from what I have read on IMDB and in the post (Gori o gori prem kar le)by Avinashji for the only song to be posted; the movie was the story of a village belle (something that Jaya Bhaduri had never played) who has a pet cow and her journey through life. “Gaai aur Gori” was a movie were she paired with Shatrughan Sinha (this movie also joins my list of movies to be seen).

Now today’s song has Jaya in the riding a bullock cart through the village singing in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar a song written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. From the video it looks like she has a tomboyish character in the movie. This song reminded me of the “sawaan ka mahina” song from “Milan” in the sense that Lata says the word ‘Shamu’ as ‘Saamu’.
Here is wishing our Guddi a very Happy Birthday

“Paaras”(1971) was directed by C P Dixit for Prithvi Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Rakhi, Farida Jalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Mehmood, Madan Puri, Mukri, Kamal Mehra, Birbal. Uma Khosla, Ratnamala, Badri Prasad, Narbada Shankar, Bhushan Tiwari, Kunal Chaudhary etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “Paaras”(1971) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is lip synced by Sanjeev Kumar, Farida Jalal and others who play villagers going somewhere in bullock carts. The song sounds a bit like “mere des ki dharti sona ugle”, which was also creacted by the same male singer- music director team. Unlike the “Upkaar”(1967) song, this song is rather unknown. I in fact had not heard this song till today.

Blog Day : 3486 Post No. : 14002

Post number 14000 was written by Sudhir Ji on 1 february 2018. In that post, he made several interesting observations and he wanted my take on them. I will try to cover those points and make some points of my own.

While brieflyly discussing the previous thousandth posts, Sudhir Ji made this observation:

The 1K post

He did write that he expects the blog to go from “strength to strength” and that he would “. . .add many more thousands of songs […] in the times to come”. So this is one question I would like Atul ji to respond to specifically – was his expectations that we shall reach, where we have reached today, and still going strong??

It was 30 march 2009 when this 1000th post was published. That was nine years ago. The world was a very different place from what it has become now. I was based at Jabalpur and I hoped to stay there in future as well. I was happily settled there. It turned out that got transferred to another state in a few months time. If I was not able to foresee what was going to happen in a few months time, then how was I going to see into the future of the blog. 🙂

I was then like a batsman who worries about where his next run is going to come from. By that time, I had worked out my standard strategy of posting 6 songs daily for three days followed by seven songs on the fourth day thus adding 25 songs every four day. Repeating the same process four times, that would give me 100 songs in 16 days. So I was happily clocking 100 songs every 16 days. Those were simple days when we had not thought about “debutant” movies, “YIPPEE” movies etc. Even the concept of contributions by regulars had not taken shape. We did not have the team of contributors that we now have. I did not even have my pets at that time that have become such an important part of my life for the last six- seven years.

The pages about list of songs that we take for granted now a days were not there at that time the 1000th post was published. The “yearwise list of songs” was introduced seven days later, on 6 april 2009, followed by “moviewise list of songs” on 19 april 2009.

Very few songs were covered till then, so deciding upon “new” songs to cover was quite simple and easy those days. I was able to cover my six to seven song a day fairly comfortably, by the first half of the day itself.

No, I never thought at that time that the blog would one day have 14000 songs in it. At that time, I thought that I would run out of songs to cover after I had covered around 2500 songs. 🙂

Song post number 2000 was a rail song posted on 27 september 2009. The blog by now has 90 rail songs. I still have at least one great rail song up my sleeve. It is lying in the drafts for last seven years. It is a kind of song that may be used for a future thousandth song.

The “music directorwise list of songs” was introduced on 3 november 2009 and thus the three important song lists were put in place a little after the posting of the 2000th song in the blog.

There has been this demand for singerwise list of songs as well. Even that may come up, if I could persuade myself to do that. 🙂

As far as Raja’s tendency to enrich English dictionary with words like ‘mind-bloggling’, ‘gangout’, etc is concerned, let me assure our readers that Raja has been at it even before this blog began. We have been together in a cricket forum since 2005 and it was then and there that he had coined a term called “Atulism” for my kind of humour. He seems to have inspired others in the blog and now we find others too coining terms like “YIPPEE”, “Atulites” etc. 🙂

Raja had written the writeups for the 3000th and 4000th posts in the blog. These two posts also happened to be the thousandth posts of Lata and Rafi respectively.

5000th post was unprecedented for the blog for the levels of planning that it involved. It too combined an artist’s personal milestone with blog milestone, but the artist was far lesser known that Lata and Rafi. This less known artist, viz Bulo C Rani, was the composer of the iconic qawwali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“. This song was a long pending “farmaish” by many people.

The planning for this post began by the time the blog had around 4700 songs in it. Bulo C Rani was only on 21 songs at that time. His songs (most of them obscure) began to be posted in the blog with suspicious regularity and his 100th post coincided with the 5000th song in the blog on 13 november 2011.

This date, 13 november became an important date as far as thousandth posts for this blog are concerned. It was exactly one year later on 13 november 2012 saw the 7000th song being posted, though at that time this coincidence went unnoticed. It was only while we were planning for 9000th post that we realised that 13 november 2011 and 2012 had seen posting of 5000th and 7000th posts. So we went into an overdrive to ensure that the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013.

The above observations also mean that the blog was covering 2000 songs per year from 2011 to 2013. This led to the blog achieving its peak strike rate of 4.63 songs per day when the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013. Had we maintained this rate till today (2 february 2018), we would be on 16140 instead on 14000 !

We were unable to maintain that rate and we have fallen to a rate barely above 4 songs per day. But the fact that the blog still adds “new” songs daily (albeit at a lower rate) without fail means that we are going on and on and adding more songs.

Preparation for the 10000th song was quite a remarkable exercise involving tremendous teamwork and planning for nearly three weeks. All regulars of the blog wrote articles and they themselves were introduced through articles written by other regulars. That mega exercise then culminated into the posting of the 10000 th song that rewrote HFM history. The behind the story tales of the preparations and waiting for the 10000th post are fond memories that are still fresh in the minds of regulars despite the passage of more than three years.

The way the blog has evolved with time is something that neither I nor others would have visualised in the past. We nowadays interact online on whatsapp, email, facebook, phone etc. We have had several togethers, inadvertently coined “gangout” by Raja. They are in addition to bilateral meetings, of course.

I have attended just one “gangout” in December 2014 at Mumbai, which has been my only such meeting so far. I have had meetings with some regulars at Delhi, Nagpur, Lucknow etc as well.

The interactions with other regulars have led to several ideas that have been implemented in the blog. The list of songs (yearwise, moviewise, MD wise) were introduced as results of suggestions by Raja. The concept of YIPPEE movies came from Pradeep Raghunathan. Covering missing movies in the blog was an idea that came from Khyati Bhatt.

HFM related statistics that are available online (if any) are nowhere in the same league as cricket related statistics. I dream of the day when we will be able to have authentic statistics for artists the way we have authentic statistics from cricketers. Unlike cricket, where records are kept thanks to the British legacy of discipline in cricket, Indians have failed to keep authentic records of their history, including HFM history. Still, there are some diehard HFM fans, and some of them are our own regulars, who are helping collect hard to find details of HFM and putting them in one place for easy reference. We in this blog have covered all the available songs of KL Saigal and Suraiyya, and we are just a few songs short for artists like Naushad, SD Burman, OP Nayyar etc. Even in case of Rafi and Lata, we have already covered nearly 60 % of all their songs.

Whenever we post century (or thousandth) post of an artist, we try to give moviewise breakups of all their songs. For instance, I have given such breakups for Suraiyya, Rajinder Krishan, Naushad, OP Nayyar etc. My plan is to give such breakups for all artists who have more than 100 songs in the blog. That would be extremely useful statistical exercise in the field of HFM. So keep watching the blog in future when we add statistics for all major HFM artists.

We in this blog are extremely strong when it comes to making resolutions and sticking to them. We are more than one month into 2018 and we have managed to live up to the new year blog resolutions for 2018 so far. Even today (2 February 2018), the “debutant” movie (number 3820) has been introduced. So it is time now to introduce the YIPPEE movie of the day.

The YIPPEE movie of the day is ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975). This movie was directed by Hiren Nag for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. This movie had Sachi, Sarika, Khyati (new discovey), Madan Puri, Manhar desai, Agha, Dhumal, Sundar, V Gopal, CS Dube, Madhup Sharma, Pardesi, Jugnu, Sriram, Surendra Singh, Prakash Mishra, Imtiaz Pathan, Junior Mehmood, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Minu Mahtab, Saroj Borkar, Padma Khanna etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the blog. Following are the details:

Here is the ninth and final song from this movie. This final song is a joie de vivre bailgaadi song where Sachin is seen joyously lip syncing this song while moving ever so slowly on a bullock cart, with Sarika too as a co passenger. They would take frequent breaks enroute showing that they were enjoying the journey rather than thinking about the destination. this archtypical Rajshree Production kind of bailgaadi songs were used in some subsequent Rajshree Productions movie as well. The most memorable to such bailgaadi song was Kaun disaa mein leke chalaa re batohiyaa from “Nadiya Ke Paar”(1982).

The song is sung by Jaspal Singh. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as music director.

With this song, ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan (Geet Gaata Chal)(1975) Singer-Jaspal Singh, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
o dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
nadiya bahe re saare bandhanon ko tod
phoolo ki hansi mein basi hai meri jan
mujhko to apna sa lage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang
yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang
man ko na bandha maine kisi ke bhi sang
jal ke oopar tairoon main hans ke samaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
ओ धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

ऊंचे ऊंचे पर्वतों कि बादलों से होड़
ऊंचे ऊंचे पर्वतों कि बादलों से होड़
नदिया बहे रे सारे बंधनों को तोड़
फूलों कि हँसी में बसी है मेरी जान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

यूँ तो मेरी अंखियों ने
देखे कई रंग
यूँ तो मेरी अंखियों ने
देखे कई रंग
मन को ना बाँधा मैंने
किसी के भी संग
जल के ऊपर तैरूँ
मैं हंस के समान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
