I was in the midst of writing a short write-up on a song from the film ‘Jawaani Ki Reet’ (1939) produced under the banner of New Theatres. The film was not available to view in DVD/VCD format. Luckily, I could get a short review of the film in February 1940 issue of  ‘Filmindia’ magazine which gave me some indication as to the theme of the story. The story reminded me of the film ‘Kangan’ (1939) produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies, as I had watched the 40-minute snippet of the film on YT a few days back.

Sureeli Suman – 15
———————–

The original HMV of EMI group was renamed RPG, when purchased by the Goenka Group. Later on in 2000, this major music producing company was aptly named as ‘Sa Re Ga Ma’. During earlier years, it used to sponsor great artists to produce many non-film music albums. Later on, under the false pretext of changing music trends, but mainly due to commercial angles, such publications along with classical music albums ware slowly reduced to very near zero.

The counter has been stuck at double one triple nine, for three days now. That, I am sure, will have beaten all the records in the books.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 21
———————————————————

Do Music Directors direct the music?

This is the title of an article appeared about 72 years ago in June 1943 issue of FILMINDIA magazine. I had read the title of the article more than a year back but did not go through it at that time thinking that it must have been written by some staff of the magazine. Recently, when I came across the same article, I was surprised to find that the article was written by Ramchandra Pal, the music director who has composed music for Bombay Talkies films like ‘Kangan’ (1939), ‘Bandhan’ (1940), ‘Punar Milan’ (1940), ‘Naya Sansar’ (1941) and many more films in other banners mainly in the 40s. The article is well written.

Sureeli Suman – 06
———————-

After posting the ‘thhumri’ ‘Saajan ki Baat Niraali’, here is one more ‘thhumri’ by Suman Kalyanpur under the direction of Khan Saheb Abdul Rehman Khan. The traditional lyrics were modified by Khan Saheb himself. These two thumries were on an Extended Play disk (EP) and was purchased by me 46 years ago in January 1969.

Missing Films of 1960s – 12
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, back from ‘Bapu Ne Kaha Tha’ and on to the next available movie in this sequence. Today, I am posting a wonderful song from the 1962 film ‘Manchali’. Ah yes, we had another ‘manchali’, before the more well known film of the same name from 1973 starring Sanjeev Kumar and Leena Chandavarkar. It appears that this film most likely sank without making any ripples, or leaving any memories behind. There is really very little information available for this film.

mere saathi
meri awaaz ke peechhe

chale aao
chale aao
chale. . . aao

 

Kaash, ye awaaz phir se live sunaai de, to kahin tak bhi chal ke jaane ko jee karta hai.
(Wish this voice could be heard live again, the heart would want to follow it, wherever.)
