Today’s song is from the ‘1952’ movie ‘Saloni’.

If you are a music lover and have been collecting cassettes earlier, you will remember that when HMV brought out the compilations of songs ‘decade wise’ it mentioned this decade of 1956-1966 as the ‘Melodious Years’ of Hindi Cinema. (If I remember correctly, the earlier decades were titled as ‘The Sentimental Era (1936-1946?)” and ‘The Fabulous Years (1946-1956)”.

‘Saloni”(1952) had eight songs. Seven of them were composed by Basant Prakash and one by Vinod.

I do not remember to have listened to the songs of this movie earlier. However, I went through this movie’s details, and its songs because of our regular reader Shri Deepak Patwardhan ji, who sent me ‘farmaaish’ of the song under discussion.

‘Saloni-1952’ was directed by J.P. Advani for ‘Goodluck Pictures, Bombay’. It was produced by Ram H. Khilnani.

This movie had Ashok Kumar, Nalini Jaywant, Poornima, Gulab, Mohna, Shakeela, Rajani, Heera Sawant, Mona, Bela, Achala Sachdev, Shivraj, Radhakishan, Randhir and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 14.04.1952.

(The addenda in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) mentions that this movie was earlier titled as ‘Chanchal’).

As mentioned above this movie had eights songs composed by two music directors. Four lyricists penned the lyrics of the songs. The breakup of their workload is given below

Raja Mehndi Ali Khan three songs
Arjun Dev Ashq three songs
Aziz Kashmiri one song
Hasrat Jaipuri one song

Here are the details of the songs of this movie :-

We can see that four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is a melancholic song sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Lyrics are by Raja Mehndi Ali Khan and music is composed by Basant Prakash.

Let us listen to the song now …

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 48
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (3 May 2012) saw four songs from four different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5916 Chaahe kitna mujhe tum bulaaoge Armaan(1953) Movie YIPPEED by now
5917 Mandwe tale ghareeb ke do phool khil rahe hain Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne(1964) 6 songs covered out of 9
5918 Laali laali doliya mein laali re dulhaniya Teesri Kasam(1966) Movie YIPPEED by now
5919 Kisi ki patli qamar lachakti Inspector(1970) 3 songs covered out of 5

We can see that two movies (out of four) whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (3 may 2022).

“Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne”(1964) is one of the eligible movies.

“Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne”(1964) was produced and directed by V Shantaram for Shantaram Productions, Bombay. The movie had Rajshree Shantaram, Jeetendra,
Surendra, Bharati, K.Date, Mai Bhide, Nana Palsikar, C.H.Atma, Paresh Kumar, Dalvir, Parshuram, Kamaal, Babloo etc in it.

“Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne”(1964) had nine songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne”(1964)to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ramlal.

Onlty the audio of the song is available. My guess is that all female songs, including this song, were picturised on JayshreeRajshree. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 19#
——————————————

Today’s movie from the list of missing movies of 1972 on the blog is ‘Ustaad Meraa Naam’.

‘Ustaad Meraa Naam’ was a stunt movie.  I had never heard the name of this movie or its’ songs earlier and it is only because of HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) that I got to know about this movie and its songs. This movie seems to be an obscure movie as none of its video is available on internet. Luckily the songs are available in the form of audios only.

‘Ustaad Meraa Naam’ was directed by Saraswati Kumar for Ravi International (Ravi Chitra Films), Madras. It was passed by Censor Board on 26.05.1972. The star cast for the film is listed as Krishna, Jyotilaxmi, Raja Sulochana, Satyanarayan, Prabhakar Reddy, Tyagraj, Azad, Pahalwan and others.

I think this must be a dubbed movie from a movie from south and could be an obscure movie of its time.

This movie had four songs written by Prem Dhawan and composed to music by Satyam. All the four songs are solo songs sung by Asha Bhonsle only. Following is the list of songs as given in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 25

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This discovery of a repeat song will have to be termed as Mother of All Repeat Songs. And just in case, before you start wondering whether poor dear me has decided to take a step off the deep end, let me explain.

Ostensibly searching for something else totally disconnected with repeat songs in Hindi films, I chanced to read this caption on a YouTube link. The face in the thumbnail image is neither Bharat Bhushan or Shashi Kapoor. And so, intrigued as I was, I clicked on the thumbnail with the face of R Madhavan, to play this song whose caption was sounding so very familiar. It turns out, yes, it is a repeat song – a repeat of the very endearing and a must-have favorite from the 1969 film ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’. This signature track has been the theme of many an amorous message of love for the connoisseurs of the Hindi film music.

Ah, but the story of my discovery had just started. I checked out the name of the film. Turns out it is ‘Dil Vil Pyaaar Vyaar’ from 2002. I track down the Wikipedia page of this film. I had not heard of this film earlier. The story line weaves around the romance lives of young friends. Seemed like a run-of-the-mill rom-com tales that abound the landscape of the Hindi film world. An immediate analogy that came to mind, from the era familiar to me, was ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’ of 1957. Similar theme, romance tales of three young friends.

Ah but what wonderful and divine music that film has. I will not dwell on the delightful music created by the legendary Madan Mohan – I am sure all readers and friends are already very much taken in by the songs of that film from 1957.

Getting back to ‘DVPV’ (‘Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar’), I was thinking – seems like the producer of this film did not have much imagination to engage song writers and MDs to create some fresh songs. So he chose to easy route to re-use this song.

But as I continued down the Wikipedia page, and reached the Soundtrack section, my eyes remained agape in wonder. The film has 13 songs listed. And (OK now, hold your breath) – ALL, I repeat ALL songs are repeats of earlier hit songs of the 60s to 80s time period. Looking closey at the list, the second realization, and a big one, hit home. ALL the thirteen tracks are creations of RD Burman. Now this discovery surely something great and different.

A little more research and I am able to locate more information online. The producer of this film is a diehard fan of RD Burman and the music created by him. And this film ‘DVPV’ has been created as a tribute for his favorite MD. So, a story and a screenplay was conjured and 13 of RDB’s famous hits have been woven into it.

The producer of this film is Vivek Vaswani. As it turns out, he himself is the author of the story line of this film. The screenplay has been adapted from the story by Sujit Sen.

Of course the credits for the song will remain with the original creators. But for this film, the music for the songs has been re-arranged and re-recorded by Babloo Chakravorty. So all songs in this film are recorded in different voices.

Ah yes, in case you are wondering – yes, I plan to bring on board all the thirteen songs of this film, in good time. Quite a bonanza here for this series.

This wonderful song from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’ has been re-recorded in the voice of Hariharan. On screen, it is performed by R Madhvan. I am sure all are familiar with this new name. My introduction to Madhavan has been through the 2009 hit film ‘3 Idiots’. I will try to say more about this film and its performers, in subsequent episodes, as I venture to cover all the songs of this film.

Other actors we see in this clip are Asrani and Namrata Shirodkar. The wonders that a song can do has not changed across the decades that Hindi films have been created, exhibited and watched. It has only become better, more imaginative and more incredulous. In the very early days of this blog itself, Atul ji had come to a conclusion, and he has so documented it in many a write up. That a situation in Hindi films takes about 3 minutes or so to be transformed. All it takes is a song. The song starts in a particular mood, with a particular expectation, and by the time the song ends, the desired mood and desired outcome is achieved and the expectations realized. In many earlier such discussions, we have seen quite wondrous and amazing things happen during the duration of a song.

With this song, things are no different. Rather, the stretch on the gullibility of comprehension is a bit too much. Madhavan is on a stage, participating in a music competition. Things to be noted about the setting. The stage where the performance happens is designed like a music CD. And the effect is complete with the singer handling a very old fashioned standing microphone. The antics Madhavan attempts with this mike takes us even further back to Elvis Presley performing live on stage, back in the 1950s.

His lady love, Namrata, is at the airport, already checked in for a flight that will take her thousands of miles away to another country, away from her beau. And voila. A ‘strategically’ placed TV screen within her view starts to telecast the music competition just as Madhavan is to present his song. The song starts. It is the replay of the famous aria – this one, from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’.

All it takes in one stanza for the lady love to make up her mind to abandon her plans to leave the country, and she decides to go back into the beckoning arms of her lover. The second stanza is even more wondrous. The lady exits from the airport, starts to drive to where the competition is in progress. And, another VOILA – this time in capital letters – she drives through the Bombay traffic, with all her memories about times spent with her lover replaying on the mind’s screen, reaches the location and is on stage with her lover, by the time the second stanza comes to a close. And yes, even has time for a change of attire. The applause by the audience is still in progress as she makes an entrance through a hazy and foggy doorway, with the director making utmost efforts to make it appear like a fairy descending through the clouds.

I remember having seen a cartoon long long back advising filmgoers to please leave their logic and reasoning outside the door, when entering a cinema hall to watch a Hindi film (or maybe any film for that matter).

So mission accomplished. In less than three minutes, from the verge of just starting to board her flight, the lady love makes it from the airport to the competition stage and into the arms of her lover.

Long be loved – the wondrous Hindi film song. Yes, all it takes is a song.

Song – Tum Bin, Jaaun Kahaan. . .  (Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar) (2002) Singer – Hariharan, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman
[Music rearranged by Babloo Chakravarty]

Lyricsa

tum bin jaaun kahan
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

dekho mujhe sar se kadam tak
sirf pyaar hoon main
gale se lagaa lo ke tumhaara
bekaraar hoon main
tum kya jaano ke bhatakta fira
kis kis gali
tum ko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

rah bhi sakoge tum kaise
ho ke mujhse judaa
hat jaayengi deewaaren
sun ke meri sadaa
aanaa hogaa tumhen mere liye
saathi meri
sooni raah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa kabhi
tumko chaah ke…
tum bin

तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन

रह भी सकोगे तुम कैसे
हो के मुझ से जुदा
हट जाएंगी दीवारें
सुन के मेरी सदा
आना होगा तुम्हें मेरे लिए
साथी मेरी
सूनी राह के
तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 13#
——————————————

We are adding the missing movies of 1972 to the blog. The year 1972 saw 131 movies released in Hindi language. Out of this we have 110 movies presented on the blog. From the remaining twenty-one movies songs for six movies seems to be unavailable (one partially available) as of now. And there is no information about the songs of ‘five’ movies. One movie ‘Zaroorat’ was without songs. That leaves us with nine movies which area yet to be introduced on the blog and those will be part of this series in coming days.

Today’s movie is ‘Ratna Daaku’. It is one hundred and eleventh movie of this year 1972 to be presented on the blog. The film is directed by KSR Das for PNR Pictures, Madras. It had SV Ranga Rao, Krishna, Chandramohan, S Ranga Rao, Dulipala, Narayan Rao, Raja Sulochana, V Nirmala, Ameeta, Baby Dolly and others. Jyothi Laxmi and Jayshree T. make special appearances in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.12.1972.

This movie had five songs written by BR Tripathi. Music was composed by Satyam. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Haa, Aaj To Mera Ho Ja Tu, Chhod Ke Yoon Re Naa Jaa Tu Vani Jairam
02 O H Oho Aa Meri Meesri Ki Meethhi Dali, Manna Dey
03 Rataiyya Baba, Ramjaniya Baba, Har Dil Ki Ye Lailaa Manna Dey, Vani Jairam
04 Chakku Ghusaa Re, Zehar Se Bujhaa Re, Vani Jairam
05 Ye To Pyaaraa Roz Ho … Happy Birthday To You S.P. Balasubramaniam, Vani Jairam

Today’s song is sung by Vani Jairam and only audio of the song is available as of now. I think this movie must have been an obscure movie of its time, so videos of this movie seem to be unavailable on internet.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post from movie ‘Pistolwaali’ to today’s movie song-post.

This article is the 16800th post in the blog.

Blog Day :

4942 Post No. : 16800

Centuries – pivotal events. And always welcome. Give us a quantized measure of manageable progress.  Like one part of a lo..ong project accomplished. Or like completing one cycle of an endless process. Would we like to compare with the earth going around the sun? Maybe not a good idea. A century taking 365 days to complete. Or maybe compare to Victor Trumper and Don Bradman and Majid Khan – getting a century in the very first session of a test match. Ah but that maybe going too fast for this crowded bandwagon of Atulites.

Well then maybe the Phileas Fogg of the Victorian Britain, who put the girdle around the world in eighty days. Hmm. . . that could be a close measure. Although I assure you that this bandwagon is trotting along somewhat faster than him, and his trusted valet – Passepartout. Now this name always intrigued me till the time I discovered that this faithful valet was a Frenchman. And that explained a lot that happened in the saga of the precise Mr. Fogg.

So let’s see. We are now at the 168th century mark on this trip into the dreamland of music. If he did a Fogg-Song-A-Day on his trip, one girdle of the earth would account for 80 songs. And if he did this 168 times, he would have enjoyed the flavor of 13,440 editions of Hindi film music. So yes, we are doing better than him on that count.

[Ah yes, you may catch the misdirection in my drift, but then this is just a tongue in cheek opening of the one hundred and sixty eighth hundred milestone post of remarkable blog.]

Remarkable is just one word, and it is incapable of spanning the entire gamut of emotions that arise when I begin to describe this blog. And its accomplishments. And yes, we have a gargantuan accomplishment, as recent as three days ago, that we must also talk about. And we will.

So yes, remarkable is an inadequate qualifier. Into the fourteenth year now, and few months away from completing it. And no bureaucratic or corporate infrastructure to drive it. And appearing on a day to day basis, just like the sun rising in the east every day. The drive of THE one person, and the “साथी हाथ बढ़ाना. . .” pull and push of the entire bandwagon. In my entire personal experience of all the young years I have, I have never seen or even heard someone mention something similar; of the classic real life manifestation of the celebrated poetic idiom of Majrooh Sb – “. . . लोग साथ आते गए, और कारवां बनता गया”.

Beyond all the kudos and accolades and all the bouquets and all the doffed headgear that we can shout out with joy, we must also acknowledge and honor – that element of destiny that actually drives all the human endeavors. Like the Marco of ‘Guide’ says to Raju, when he discovers the lost caves of ancient history, replete with sculpted beauties – a lifetime of aspirations realized. He says, “. . . लेकिन तुम जानते हो राजू, आज तक कोई पारखी यहाँ तक क्यों नहीं आया? क्योंकि ये काम मेरी किस्मत में लिखा था।” [“But do you know Raju, why no connoisseur has ever reached here? Because this discovery was destined to be my endeavor.”]

Yes, the endeavors of the chosen, ordained by destiny. For other than that, there is no plausible explanation as to why it happens so in the affairs of men and in the flow of history. Accomplishments, discoveries, explorations, deeds of triumph – history always has a name written on them. It is never that hordes of men discovered America, or that a whole school of mathematicians got together to propose the methods of Calculus. History always has a name – a singular busybody to associate with high tides of achievements.

This blog, by any measure, is a feat of incalculable perseverance, and defined merit that has endured years and years of continuity. And that is yet an understatement, as for the subject matter that this blog deals with – the unending ocean of music that is the Hindi film song. And a project that has now assumed a life of its own. At the 16,800 mark today, we are just about at the one third mark, considering just the first five decades of Hindi cinema. And not even at one fifth, if the scale expands to cover almost the entire ten decades of film music – as the time passes. Only an insightful vision can fathom the purpose, the purposefulness, and the lasting dedication that has brought this humble beginning that started with saying – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” to that zenith of accomplishment where the burden of the group song now is

Geeton Se Dosti Hai, Music Se Yaari Hai
Aise Maze Ki Pyaare Zindagi Hamaari Hai

A Labor of Love – so rightly printed in the banner of our home page. There is no other way accomplishments of such enormous magnitude are made. Decidedly yes, one song at a time. But the cumulative effect of the persistent doggedness and the dedicated perseverance brings us here to this pinnacle of a looming mountain range ahead.

There is so much about this blog that boggles the mind that I would like to propose we stop calling this Atul-Song-a-Day Blog and start calling it Atul-Song-a-Day Boggler. Because that is what happens with this bandwagon – a new mind boggling something or the other week-in and week-out. Everything is so colossal and titanic about this blog that it is now beyond even creating wonder in the minds of regulars.

And yet, we have events on the blog that shake us all. Three days ago, on 25th Jan, the visitor clock on our home paged logged in the 15 Millionth visit. Atul ji had done some basic averaging to announce that we are clocking more than three thousand visitors per day, which in turn translates to two visitors hitting this blog every minute. Quite a crazy number considering that this blog deals with a topic that one would consider as not being the choice of majority of the social media users. Hindi film song, and that too pre 1980s. And goodness, non digital music – who would prefer that in this age. But of course, the numbers belie expectations. 3000+ hits a day – I am sure very few non-commercial, non-social-media web sites can boast of such a massive following.

So, 168th century. And 15 million visitors. Celebrations are called for and have been announced. But of the date today, there is one more celebration that we must honor and observe. Suman Kalyanpur, an eminent and essential Diva of Hindi cinema, turns 85 today.

The profiles and biographies and discographies – all have been touched upon and presented in numerous posts on this blog itself. I will not attempt to present those details again. I will talk about Suman Kalyanpur, as I see her in my mind, an artist, an accomplished singer who has made her mark on the history of Indian cinema, in face of many odds and struggles.

The singular expression that comes to mind when her name is mentioned – a quiet and humble persona that has led a blemish-less career as a playback singer, a career that has lasted almost four decades of active performance. The tinsel town that is India’s film industry, is a hard and difficult place to survive. Much has been said about the circumstances that have been faced by many a talented and gifted artists who did not get their seat on the stage of first tier performers. And it is surprising to see many a name that did not make it.

But surely, here is a name that was not a first preference of the top line banners and music directors. Despite that, to make a mark and leave behind memories of songs that will never be forgotten – that is surely an accomplishment. A major part of her repertoire belongs to the B and C grade cinema. And when one listens to those obscure and forgotten sounds and melodies, one is surely inclined to wonder.

Today, I present an obscure and unheard melody – a song from an obscure film from 1963 – ‘Royal Mail’. One of the many variations of the theme of Zorro that have kept appearing regularly in Indian cinema. For a long time, this film was unavailable, until recently, when the video of this appeared online. Although the film is available now, but all the songs of this film are not. Especially this song, a solo rendition by Suman Kalyanpur – I have not been able to locate it online, and so I have uploaded it from my collection.

Way back in 2014, I had uploaded one song of this film, at the request of a reader of another blog. That song is “Chali Jaaye Re Jeevan Ki Gaadi”. The lead pair in this film are somewhat unknown names – Mahesh Kumar and Ambika. The above mentioned song was picturised on this lead pair. And today’s song also features the lead pair. Mahesh Kumar is present in the clip, but only Ambika is lip syncing the song. The dialogues leading into the song indicate the situation. The Rajkumari (Ambika) was in some trouble, and a masked vigilante (Mahesh Kumar) saves her. This masked person is known in the land as Royal Mail, and is a friend of the poor and the oppressed, and a foe of the oppressors. And when he asks permission to leave, Rajkumari breaks into this song, expressing her gratitude and requesting the masked masquerader to stay and accept her love.

The words are from the pen of Indeevar, and the music is by Avinash Vyas. An unheard and lovely song that I post today, to honor Suman ji on her 85th birthday. I wish her well, I wish her good health and comfort and I wish her many more such celebrations to follow.

So, we have had centuries today, we have had millions, and we also have an important birthday celebration. 28th Jan, 2022 – a red letter day of sorts.

I wish Atul ji, and the rest of the gang of bandwagoneers many more centuries up ahead. That the drums may keep rolling and the band keeps on playing – all the wonderful music that we love.

I would like to close this post with some lines remembered from the very first song posted by Atul ji, four thousand nine hundred and forty one days ago –

ab aage jo bhi ho anjaam, dekha jaayega
khuda tarash liya, aur bandagi kar li

Happy listening.


Song – Zindagi Dene Wale Dil To Mera Leta Jaa  (Royal Mail) (1963) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

dil ki aankhon se tujhko dekha
hum ne pehchaan liya
tere dil ki pooja mein
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

phool sa dil seena parbat sa
tujh sa koi dildaar kahaan
tere iraade rok sakey jo
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

sab kuchh de kar kuchh na liya
tu kaisa dene waala hai
tera shukriya jaane waale
kaisa jaadu daala hai
kaisa jaadu daala hai
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

दिल की आँखों से तुझको देखा
हमने पहचान लिया
तेरे दिल की पूजा में
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

फूल सा दिल सीना परबत सा
तुझ सा कूई दिलदार कहाँ
तेरे इरादे रोक सके जो
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

सब कुछ दे कर कुछ ना लिया
तू कैसा देने वाला है
तेरा शुक्रिया जाने वाले
कैसा जादू डाला है
कैसा जादू डाला है
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

Blog Day :

4935 Post No. : 16783

Hullo Atuldom

21st January – the 57th remembrance day of the lively, lovely Geeta Bali – of the mischievous eyes and smile.

She was born Harkirtan Kaur in Amritsar and began her career at the age of 12. Her first adult role or heroine role came in 1946 i.e. at the age of 16. The film was ‘Badnaami’. Her popularity came with ‘Baawre Nain’ in 1950. She was seen in about 80+ films in her short career which ended with her untimely death in 1965.

To be truthful, I must say that my first memories of the lady was when I saw her dancing with Bhagwan Dada in the songs of ‘Albela’ (1951). This was during the Chitrahaar and Chhaayageet (television programs) days of my life. I didn’t know any other details about her and honestly speaking I didn’t bother to find too.

For me the actors lasted for as long as the songs played on the television. It must have been much much later in my life, say in the last 15-20 years that I have come to associate songs with the writers, music directors, films, singers, actors emoting on the screen etc. Same goes for Geeta Bali too.

It is only in the last so many years that I found that some of the songs which I love to hear are also great to see because of who it is filmed on. This is the truth of my liking “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re“; “Tadbeer Se Bigdi Huyi Taqdeer Banaa Le“; “Shaam Dhale Khidki Tale“; “Chaandni Aayi Banke Pyaar Saajana O Saajana“; and the best of them all “Ye Raat Ye Chaandni Phir Kahaan“. All these songs have one common factor – Geeta Bali. I am sorry I forgot to add another personal favorite in this list – “Shola Jo Bhadke Dil Mera Dhadke” – all lively lovely songs and a heroine to match. Today one more song got added to this list – a song from the 1956 release ‘Inspector’ – “Mera Akele Jiya Kaise Laage Re Piya“.

Recently after subscribing to a particular channel on my DTH I am having a daily feast of great, good movies and songs That is where I discovered that today is the anniversary of this beautiful lady who was also Shammi Kapoor’s wife. She was one Kapoor bahu who continued to work in films even after marriage and two children. Her popularity didn’t wane due to her marriage. Of course Jennifer Kendall (Shashi Kapoor’s wife) was not on the scene then I think.

After I discovered today’s connection with Geeta Bali I googled to see what the internet throws up about this yesteryear leading lady. I found this https://www.indiatimes.com/entertainment/celebs/10-things-you-need-to-know-about-indian-cinema-s-larger-than-life-actress-geeta-bali-256307.html  where her son Aditya Raj Kapoor has been quoted (I am reproducing here)

If you see the way Shammi Kapoor danced, that was Geeta Bali’s personality. My mother was a bigger and more successful star than my father when they got married. 

Of course then the article goes on to mention that she had worked with her future-in-laws before she got married to Shammi Kapoor. The article says that Surinder Kapoor (Anil and Boney Kapoor’s father) was Geeta’s secretary. And that she was a disciplinarian , adventurous, promoter of fine arts and how she used to take her kids on long drives. (Personally I didn’t know all this). That article is a good read.

I had messaged Sudhirji and Atulji in the morning asking if there were any songs filmed on Geeta Bali that are yet to be posted, and Sudhir ji replied that he has to look up. By then I had discovered an hitherto unheard, unseen (by me of course) song that has Geeta Bali playing a village girl whose friends are teasing her about her marriage being fixed with a city bred. I looked further and found that this was from a 1960 movie called ‘Bade Ghar Ki Bahu’. Looking up the ‘List of songs movie-wise’ told me that this song is yet to be posted and only the following two song from this film are on the blog.

Cham Cham Chamka Saara Jahaan

Meri Khata Bata De Phir Chaahe Jo Sazaa De

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, written by Tanvir Naqvi and composed by Chitragupt. The movie was directed by Kundan Kumar and had a cast of Geeta Bali, Kuldeep Kaur, Shammi, Abhi Bhattacharya, Sunder etc.

I must thank Sudhir ji for helping with cutting the video out of the movie of which I found a very bad print on YouTube.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 156 # Missing Films of 1972 -01#
——————————————

Welcome all to this post!!!

Regulars on the blog must be aware that last year ‘2021’ we celebrated ‘fifty years’ of the year ‘1971’. And with the ending of the year ‘2021’, ‘1971’ has become ‘fifty years old now’ 😊.

The New Year ‘2022’ marks the beginning of ‘fifty years’ for the year ‘1972’. So, it is quite appropriate for us to have a look on the movies ‘released / unreleased’ in 1972 and their status on the blog. To start with, we will begin this ‘celebration’ by adding the ‘missing films’ of 1972 on the blog first.

If one goes through the HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) and start reading the list of movies for the year ‘1972’, alphabetically the very first movie mentioned is ‘Aakraant’. This movie has so far not been represented on the blog. But then, there is no information about the songs in this movie.

The second, third, and fourth movies are ‘Aanbaan’, ‘Aankh Micholi’, and ‘Aankhon Aankhon Mein’ respectively. All the three movies have been represented on the blog. The fifth movie in the list in HFGK is ‘Achchhaa Buraa’ which is yet to be represented on the blog. Today we get introduced to this movie from 1972 – ‘Achchhaa Buraa’.

“Achchhaa Buraa” was directed by Mohammad Hussain for Upkar Prdouctions, Bombay.  The star cast is listed as Anupama, Dev Dutt, Dev Kumar, NA Ansari, Neelam, Sushma, Tuntun, Meena T, Mohan Choti, Praveen Pal, Shyam Kumar, Polsan, Shefali, V Gopal, PS Khan, Shammi, Rinku, Baby Yasmeen, Asit Sen, Bela Bose, Madhumati, Rajani and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.07.1972.

This movie had four songs – three written by Asad Bhopali and one written by Balkavi Bairagi. Music for this movie was composed by Raj Kamal. The list of songs in this movie is as given below.

S No Song Title Singer/s
01 Wallaah hamse poochho tum kitni haseen ho Mohd Rafi, Kishna Kalle
02 Soneyaa, jaata kahaan hai dil todke, pyaar ka raasta chhodke Usha Mangeshkar
03 Do dilon mein hamesha muhabbat rahe Hemlata, Sulakshana Pandit
04 Kuchh aisa kar ooparwaale, tod taadkar sab taale Manna Dey

I was not aware of this movie or its songs. Its only through HFGK that I got to know about this movie. The songs of this movie have been uploaded recently (i.e., in 2019). I remember I have looked for its songs earlier, but they were not available before. Now audio link of the above songs is available. (I could not locate video links of these songs).

Lyrics for the today’s song are written by Asad Bhopali and music is composed by Raj Kamal. This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar, and it is a lovely-sweet song. I guess it should have been picturised on the actress of this movie Anupama. I could not find more information about this movie except the details given in HFGK (Vol-V). Though there have been one more movie with the same title in the year ‘1983’. I have not watched that movie either.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie ‘Achchhaa Buraa’ and picturisation of the songs from this movie.

Let us now listen to the today’s beautiful song … only audio of this song is available …

With this song the movie ‘Achchhaa Buraa’ (1972) makes its debut on the blog 😊

Song – Soneyaa, Jaata Kahaan Hai Dil Tod Ke (Achcha Bura) (1972) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Raj Kamal

Lyrics

ho soneyaa aa

jaata kahaan hai dil tod ke
pyaar ka raasta chhod ke
main to de doongi jaan

ab to samajh le ae
dil ke ishaare ae

baat pyaar ki maan jaa
ho tere binaa channa mar jawaangi
ho zulmi
naa jaa dilon ka naata tod ke
pyaar ka raasta chhod ke
main to de doongi jaan
be-imaan bairiyaa
jaane naa doongi mukh mod ke
soneyaa aa aa aa aa

uff ye gussaa
uff ye tevar
us pe nakhre ae
haaye teri kya baat hai ae ae ae ae
dil mein mohabbat
aankhon mein nafrat
ab ham samjhe
oye teri kya baat hai
ho tere utton waari waari jawaangi
ho maahiya
na ja dilaan da naata tod ke
pyaar ka raasta chhod ke
main to de doongi jaan
be-imaan bairiyaa
jaane naa doongi mukh mod ke
soneyaa aa aa aa aa

pyaar se badh ke ae
aa phailaa de
baahen apni
aaj roothhna chhod ke ae ae ae ae
tu jo mujhko
galey laga le
o nirmohi
aaj roothhnaa chhod ke ae
o sadkaa main tainu chadhaawaangi
heereyaa
na ja dilon ka naata tod ke
pyaar ka raasta chhod ke
main to de doongi jaan
be-imaan bairiyaa
jaane naa doongi mukh mod ke
soneyaa aa aa aa aa
heereyaa aa aa aa aa

हो सोनेया॰॰आ॰॰आ
सोनेया

जाता कहाँ है दिल तोड़ के
प्यार का रास्ता छोड़ के
मैं तो दे दूँगी जान
बेईमान बैरिया
जाने ना दूँगी मुख मोड़ के
सोनेया॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

प्यासी जवानी
तुझको पुकारे
ओ दीवाने
बात प्यार की मान जा॰॰आ॰॰आ
अब तो समझ ले
दिल के इशारे
कर ना बहाने
बात प्यार की मान जा
हो तेरे बिना चन्ना मर जावांगी
हो ज़ुल्मी
ना जा दिलों का नाता तोड़ के
प्यार का रास्ता छोड़ के
मैं तो दे दूँगी जान
बेईमान बैरिया
जाने ना दूँगी मुख मोड़ के
सोनेया॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

उफ़्फ़ ये गुस्सा
उफ़्फ़ ये तेवर
उस पे नखरे
हाए तेरी क्या बात है
दिल में मोहब्बत
आंखों में नफरत
अब हम समझे
ओय तेरी क्या बात है
हो तेरे उत्तों वारी वारी जावांगी
हो माहिया
ना जा दिलों का नाता तोड़ के
प्यार का रास्ता छोड़ के
मैं तो दे दूँगी जान
बेईमान बैरिया
जाने ना दूँगी मुख मोड़ के
सोनेया॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

प्यार से बढ़ कर
आ फैला दे
बाहें अपनी
आज रूठना छोड़ के॰॰ए॰॰ए॰॰ए
तू जो मुझको
गले लगा ले
ओ निर्मोही
आज रूठना छोड़ के॰॰ए
ओ सदका मैं तैनू चढ़ावांगी
हीरेया
ना जा दिलों का नाता तोड़ के
प्यार का रास्ता छोड़ के
मैं तो दे दूँगी जान
बेईमान बैरिया
जाने ना दूँगी मुख मोड़ के
सोनेया॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ
हीरेया॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

O o o roop ki raani

aajaa ke mujhe hai teri tasweer banaani
teri tasweer banaani
aajaa ke mujhe hai teri tasweer banaani
teri tasweer banaani

ye mast ghataayen
ye ghhataaon se jawaani
ye mast ghataayem
ye ghhataaon se jawaani
girta hua nadiya mein
pahaadon ka ye paani
girta hua nadiya mein
pahaadon ka ye paani
kehta hai
tere roop ki rangeen kahaani
kehta hai
tere roop ki rangeen kahaani
o o
roop ki raani
aajaa ke mujhe hai teri tasweer banaani
teri tasweer banaani

aabaad nahin hai
ye meri ulfat ka asar hai
ulfat ka asar hai
tujhe kuchh bhi khabar hai
tu dhoondhh rahi hai jise
wo dil to idhar hai
nazar pher idhar hai
kha jaaye na thhokar teri madhosh jawaani
kha jaaye na thhokar teri madhosh jawaani
o o o
roop ki raani
aajaa ke mujhe hai teri tasweer banaani
teri tasweer banaani

ye raaz e mohabbat hai
kadam zara soch ke dharna
zara soch ke dharna
duniya se na darna
phoolon ki tamanna hai to kaanton se bhi guzarna
fariyaad na karna
saanson hi mein palti hai muhabbat ki jawaani
saanson hi mein palti hai muhabbat ki jawaani
o o o
roop ki raani
aajaa ke mujhe hai teri tasweer banaani
teri tasweer banaani
aajaa ke mujhe hai teri tasweer banaani
teri tasweer banaani
