Missing Films of 1960s – 74
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

In 1940, a film by the name ‘Thief Of Tatar’ was released. Then in 1955 came another film titled ‘Tatar Ka Chor’. And after another 13 years, in 1968, came the film ‘Tatar Ki Haseena’. Just like the ‘Alibaba’ of Arbian Nights and the ‘Thief Of Baghdad’, the Tatar subject also seemed to hold a special interest for Hindi film makers for some time.

The name Tatar applies to an ethnic community of people, originating from the mountains of Mongolia. Originally, these people formed nomadic tribes that moved westward from the Mongol region and over the centuries, spread out all the way to Central Asia and Eastern Europe. The name Tatar first appeared in the 5th century AD. Tatars are essentially different from Mongols; however historically, they have moved together across the Asian continent. The Tatar tribes accompanied Genghis Khan on his conquest of the central and south Asian territories. They mingled with the tribes of the Central Asia and the Turkish people. For a period of history they formed kingdoms and empires in the regions that are now known as the Central Asian republics. In fact, there continues to be a Republic of Tatarstan as part of the current Russian Federation. Currently, about 6.5 million people spreading from Mongolia, China and Siberia in the east, all the way to Poland and Slovakia in the west, claim Tatar roots and ethnicity.

Just like Genghis Khan, Taimur and Halaku (grandson of Genghis Khan) – the Mongol kings and warriors who became legends that have fascinated the historians and the literati, the stories of the Tatar tribes have held the same romanticism and their legends, tales and histories abound in the Central Asia. And thus, the interest of Hindi film makers and the production of films listed above.

Today, I introduce the 1968 film ‘Tatar Ki Haseena’ on our blog. The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of Daluat Productions and is directed by Aslam Allahbaadi. The cast of actors is listed as Nalini Chonkar, Shah Agha, Sherry, Murad, Preetam, Radhika, Heera Sawant, Jeevankala, Madhumati, Kumud Tripathi, Sadiq, Maqbool, Prince Arjun, Babu Rajpal, Siddi Baba, Anil, Vijay, Meena, Sarosh, Kiran, Raju, and Santosh etc.

The Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, five of which are written by Aslam Allahbaadi and one by M Yusuf. Music direction is by S Kishan. It seems that this probably is the solitary film that Aslam Allahbaadi wrote for. Another name, simply as Aslam appears in the Geet Kosh listings but whether it is the same as the lyricist of this film, is not known definitely. S Kishan as a music director is known to the readers of this blog. He has about a dozen films to his credit in the 1960s and 70s, including four which remained unreleased. Four of his films are already represented on our blog.

Today’s selection from this film is rendered by Suman Kalyanpur. The music is a reminder of the Middle Eastern melodies. The song is an assertion of love. The protagonist, a lady, is addressing her lover, telling about the feelings of her heart – that she would readily give up her life even for him, that she is restrained and helpless and is seeking solace in his benefaction.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request other readers and friends who may have seen this film in its time, to kindly add more information about this film and this song.

‘Tatar Ki Haseena’ makes a debut on our blog today, with this song. Listen to this poignant rendition, and enjoy.

“Mahasati Tulsi Vrinda” (1947), a mythological movie, was directed by Ishwarlal for Jayant Desai Productions, Bombay. The movie had Ishwarlal, Ranjana, Umakant, Reva Shankar, Bhagwandas, Sayyad Ahmad, Kantilal, Sukumar, Vidya Devi, Chandabai, Shabnam, Shanta Bai, Shalini, Lalita etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog.

The details provided in HFGK suggest that this song is sung by Putul Chatterji which appears incorrect. It is clearly a duet song.

Shalin Bhatt, the uploader of this song and a regular visitor of this blog, quotes Mr Girdharilal Vishwakarma for providing the correct information about the artists of the song. According to him, Saraswati Rane and G M Durrani are the singers. Ishwar Chand Kapoor is the lyricist (HFGK mentions Qamar Jalalabadi as the lyricist).

Music is composed by Ram Ganguly.

With this rare song, ‘Mahasati Tulsi Vrinda’ (1947) makes its debut in the blog.

20th May was the 34th remembrance day for Hansraj Behl, the composer emeritus of Hindi films.

In the history of Hindi cinema, only two music directors have had the distinction of being addressed as Master ji. The first one was Ghulam Haider Sb. Hansraj Behl was only the second music director to be so addressed. Maybe one of the reasons is that he always encouraged, mentored and promoted new artists. Many a singers and some music directors were given their debut breaks by him. Asha Bhosle and Madhubala Jhaveri started their singing careers under the baton of Hansraj Behl, and Bulo C Rani worked as assistant with him before getting independent assignments.

As I searched the web for information, I came across this wonderfully detailed piece at apnaarchives.com which lists a number of golden hits that he has composed in the 1940s and 1950s, including some of the seminal hits of singers like Mukesh, Rafi, Lata and others that really helped to build their careers.

For today’s remembrance, I present this lovely song of coming of age and a young heart pining for her lover. The singer of this delightful song from the 1946 film ‘Gwaalan’ is Susheela Rani – a name that may not be entirely unknown to the readers, but also not too familiar though. Regulars will recognize this name as the lady who started off as the secretary to Baburao Patel, the vitriolic editor of the famous film magazine ‘Film India’, and very quickly graduated to be his third wife. A lady of substance and caliber, she was actively involved in managing the publishing process for the magazine, and eventually the entire publishing and business empire of her husband.

As a part of their business run, Baburao Patel produced and directed two films also. The first was ‘Draupadi’ in 1943 and the second was ‘Gwaalan’ in 1946. Susheela Rani played the female lead in both these films, garnering some critical acclaim for her portrayal of the complex role  of ‘Draupadi’.

The other members of the star cast of the film ‘Gwaalan’ include Trilok Kapoor, Bipin Gupta, Madhuri, Sheikh Hasan, Bikram Kapoor, David, Noorjahan, Master Ratan, Shanta Kumari, Nagendra, Pandit Iqbal, Yusuf, Altaf Hussain, and Karan Singh etc. The film has 10 songs, all written by Pt Indra., and the music is by Hansraj Behl. The singing voice is that of Susheela Rani herself, singing her own songs in the film.

A beautiful rendition of a song of love indeed. Listen and enjoy.

[Ed Note: The song is uploaded on YT by our very own Sadanand ji.]

Ah yes – ‘Hunterwaali’. Seems that just like Tarzan, ‘Hunterwaali’ has been quite a favorite title and theme for film producers in India. The original ‘Hunterwaali’ was released in 1935 – with Fearless Nadia assaying the title role. This was followed in 1943 with a title variation of ‘Hunterwaali Ki Beti’. Then in 1959 came another ‘Hunterwaali’, this time the title role being played by Mehru. In 1972, came a production from the south. The female lead role was played by Jyotilakshmi. In 1978, yes, one more ‘Hunterwaali’ film was released. And guess, the lady playing the title role – it is Bindu.
[Ed Note: Atul ji points out that there is another ‘Hunterwaali’ film right there from the year 1959; the title is ‘Miss Hunterwaali’.]

After 1978, for lack of recorded data, it cannot be certainly said what other ‘Hunterwaali’ films came. There is a Bhojpuri film by this name in 2014-15. YouTube also informs us that there was a film by this title, produced in Pakistan also, in 1988.

As per the details recorded in HFGK, the film is produced by Madhav Rao and Rustom Irani under the banner of Golden Movies Corporation, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The cast of actors is listed as Mehru, Samar Roy, Habeeb, Ram Raseela, Mirajkar, Jeet Bala, Kailash, Shri Bhagwan, Sattar, and Mohammad amongst others. Five songs are listed for this film. All the songs are written by Shaad. As I checked for this lyricists name in the Geet Kosh, I find that his name appears in just one more film viz., ‘Rifle Girl’ in 1958, which is also already represented here on our blog. Interestingly, the music director for ‘Rifle Girl’ (1958) and ‘Hunterwaali’ (1959) is the same – Harbans. In the Geet Kosh, we see his name appear in eight films over a period of 1958 to 1966.

Coming to the song itself. This wonderful melodious song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. The beginning of the song is so stirring. The chorus sound of “Lallal Laara, Lallaara” immediately speaks of a promise of a wonderful song to follow. And the promise is verily kept by the music director. One may listen to this tune and may comment that this tune is familiar, and that it is adapted from such and such and such other songs. But that analysis is not important. The lilt and the joy in this melody speaks for itself. Yet once again, the observations pan out – an obscure film (1960s and earlier), unknown or really very less known artists, nothing much available as information – all these characteristics combine to ensure some very lovely and mostly unheard, unfamiliar songs. This instance is no less.

So with this lilting song, the 1958 version of ‘Hunterwaali’ makes its debut on our blog today.

There was a time when the films made in Hindi could be classified easily as A grade, B grade and C grade films. A grade films were those made by big and famous banners with top class actors and leading music directors. B grade films were those made with second rung of actors, director and music directors. C grade films were those films which were made by not so famous banners, almost unknown actors directors and composers. Usually C grade films used to be action/stunt films, made on shoestring budgets, having a fixed story line resembling Tarzan, Hercules or Hollywood action films of Robin Hood, with the background of a jungle, tribe people, king-queen-wicked wazir and similar stories.

C grade films were always quickies, made on  shoe-string budgets. During the late 1930s and 40s, Master Bhagwan action films used to be completed in about Rs. 50,000 only – including studio rent, sets, artist fees and other expenses. C grade films had a captive audience comprising of factory workers, daily wagers, low income earners and students. However, such films used to rake in big profits to the film makers. Therefore, even top class banners sometimes made C grade films, to make up their losses in big film flops.

There were certain production houses which specialized and thrived on such films – like Paramount Films, Jagriti Films, Mohan Pictures, Wadia Movietone etc. Since studio system was in vogue, the film studios usually had fixed actors and directors in their employment. Music directors were of no consequence, so anybody would do. Well known composers like C Ramchandra used to take another name while composing music for C grade action films. Music assistants of famous composers used to give music to such films. Well known composers fallen on bad days also gave music to such films. C grade films rarely released commercial gramophone records for their film songs, so such songs are a real rarity even with big collectors.

Some common and regular names one finds in such grade C action/stunt films are Nadia, Boman Irani, Sayani, Bilimoria brothers, Cooper sisters, Zohra Khatoon, Ameena Khatoon, Khatoon Bai, Prakash, Adjania, Noorjehan (sr.), Moosa Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Baburao Pehelwan, Marutirao Pehelwan, Azim Bhai, Basheer, Ali, Bachha, Chandra Rao, Harishchandra Rao, Shankar Rao, Master Bhagwan, Mirajkar, Jamshed, John Cawas, Lalita Pawar, Navin Chandra. . . and many more such names.

Barring a few names like Lalita Pawar, Bhagwan, Nadia etc, all the other action film actors remained relatively less known. No one knows anything about them. Actors like Baburao Pehelwan, Marutirao Pehelwan (he was the hero in the first Gujarati talkie film ‘Narsi Mehta’), Chandra Rao, Sayani etc. were quite famous in their times, but except their Filmography (thanks to HFGK), nothing more is known about them. All of them ended only with mere names !

Today, I am writing about one such action film hero of 7 silent and 12 talkie films of the 1930s and 40s, whom I stumbled upon recently. His name is so obscure and unknown that even I was stunned, but he has acted with heroines like Rajkumari (Dubey), Sarojini, Vatsala Kumthekar, Gauhar Karnataki and had acted in films made by well known production houses like Paramount and Mohan Pictures.

On 2nd January 2015, I got a message on my Facebook page from an unknown person called ‘Tejas Vazare’. Since I try to avoid unknown people as my Fb friends, I ignored that message. Three years later, this January, I saw the message again. This time it attracted my attention by what he wrote. He mentioned that his grandfather was a Hindi film hero of the 1930s and 40s. Out of curiosity, I wrote to him asking him to sent information about himself and his grandfather. He informed me that Master Shankar Rao Vazare was a hero in few films in 1930s and 40s. This was a name new to me. He also sent me film posters, photos, newspaper articles etc. about him. On reading all this, I strongly felt that here was a man who needs to be brought before today’s world. We exchanged lot many mails. I checked all film names with my books and prepared a list of films having evidence.

Tejas and me have planned to meet in March, in Bombay. May be his father (son of Shankar Rao) and aunt (daughter of Shankar Rao) will accompany him. That time I will complete my interview with them and prepare a detailed article with photos, posters etc for publishing on line. But till then, I wish to present his short biography on this blog first. This blog has the right to have such things first here before anywhere else. I owe it this much. So, here we go.

Master Shankar Rao Vazare was born on 1-1-1916 in the Bhabhanagar area of Nashik (Maharashtra), in a peasant family. His father Trimbak Rao Vazare was the Patil of Nashik. (Patil used to be the overall head of the village / town) and his uncle was the chairman of the Municipality. Shankar Rao was very keen on films. Dadasaheb Phalke was also from Nashik. Taking inspiration from him, Shankar Rao developed attraction for films. He used to see English films in the tent theatre of Nashik.

He reached Bombay. He was very handsome, tall and had a good physique. He got roles in the silent films made by Mahavir Photoplays. From 1929 to 1931, he worked in 7 silent films. There could be more also, but initially he was uncredited. Problem with the silent films was that they generally had 2 or 3 titles and alias names. Additionally as per the local language the title used to change also. So, it is very difficult to trace silent films by titles in the various lists published.

The list of his silent films that has been identified so far is –  ‘Father’s Love’ (1929), ‘Ideal Woman’ (1930), ‘Prince Of The People’ (1930), ‘Avarice’ (1930), ‘Niradhar Niru’ (1931), ‘Jungle Ka Jawan’ (1931) and ‘Saroj Kumari’ (1931).

After 1941, he found it difficult to get films. He returned to his hometown Nashik to look after his family, farming and also started a business dealing in cucles. In 1946, he got his last film and after that, he again returned to Nashik. Master Shankar Rao Vazare died on 21-1-1949, at a very young age of only 33 years.

Shankar Rao Vazare was the favourite hero of director Kikubhai Desai (father of Manmohan Desai) for silent and talkie films. Fearless Nadia, Ashok Kumar and Kishore Kumar were his fans. Ashok Kumar used to like seeing his films. In one interview, Kishore Kumar has said – “Despite being a hero, my brother Ashok Kumar never did a fight scene on the screen. I considered Master Shankar Vazare a better hero than him ! ”

His hometown Nashik was very proud of him. During the centenary celebrations of Nashik Municipality, they published his photo and a short Biography in their souvenir. There were articles and photos published in local newspapers. His wife expired about 4 years ago and his sons continue to live in Nashik. They are proud of him.

To get a song from his films was a great problem since nothing is available on YouTube. I sent out request letters to some famous record collectors and our own Sudhir ji. All collectors replied negatively, but only Sudhir ji had just one song from the film ‘Madhu Bansari’ (1939). He sent me the song promptly. Thank you Sudhir ji for your kind help. On finding this song, Tejas Vazare and his family were overjoyed and have thanked our Sudhir ji wholeheartedly.

This song is sung by Vatsala Kumthekar, under the baton of Damodar Sharma. The film was directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of the film was Master Vazare, Sarojini (sister of actress Indurani, mother of actress Azra and wife of Nanubhai Vakil ), Vatsala Kumthekar, Ganpat, Basheer, Ali etc. There were 14 songs in the film.

Missing Films of 1960s – 54
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Mohabbat Aur Jung’ seems to be a rare and obscure film from 1967. The video of this song is available online, but not much information about the film is available. Existence of the video indicates that the film is in public domain. However, neither the film, nor any other song from this film is as yet uploaded.

The information in the Geet Kosh is also not complete. It identifies this as a stunt film, from the banner of Uppal Productions, Bombay. The list of actors, and the director’s name, both are not available. The uploader has indicated a list of names, viz., Radha Saluja, Ram Mohan, Helen, Shankar, purportedly to be a short list of actor names in this film. Film’s director is S Azim. The list of actors is Randhawa, Helen, Indira, Sunder, Ram Mohan, Sherry, Sujata Bakshi.
[Ed Note: The names of actors, and that of the director are provided by dear Sadanand ji, based on the information on the film poster. Thanks Sadanand ji.]

In terms of songs also, only two songs are listed in the Geet Kosh, with an indication that there are more. The lyricist is identified as Taj Bhopali and the music direction is by Iqbal Qureshi.

This song is sung by Krishna Kalle. I am not certain of the identity of the on screen performer. Is she a young Radha Saluja, a few years younger than what we see her as in ‘Doraaha’, her better known film from 1971. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help to confirm or correct.
[Ed Note: As per information provided by our dear Prakash ji, the on screen performer is Sujata Bakshi. Thanks Prakash ji.]

The song is a ‘calling the beloved’ type of song, as the protagonist is frolicking in the woods and in the waters of a river, singing the words that beckon the beloved.

With this song, the film ‘Mohabbat Aur Jung’ makes a debut on our blog today.

Song – Samaa Khoobsurat Hai, Tumhaari Zaroorat Hai  (Mohabbat Aur Jung) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Taj Bhopali, MD – Iqbal Qureshi

Missing Films of 1960s – 52
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A bit of a coincidence here that the song of this series posted yesterday “O Chanda. . . Aaj Ki Raat Na Dhalna”, and today’s next song in this series, both are ‘chaand’ songs. Yesterday’s song got posted early in the morning, and later I was thinking – posting a ‘chaand’ song at sunrise time is wholly inappropriate. And so, today’s ‘chaand’ song I am bringing to you at an appropriate time in the evening – a waxing moon is in the skies.

Today’s film is ‘Bharat Milap’ from 1965. The film was produced under the banner of KP Productiond, Bombay, and the director’s name is Babubhai Mistry. The cast of actors includes Sohrab Modi, Sulochana, Ashish Kumar, Indrani Mukherjee, Leela Misra, Anand Kumar, and Mridula amongst others.

The film has seven songs, all from the pen of Bharat Vyas. Music is by Vasant Desai. Today’s song is a duet in the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. Unless I am mistaken, the actors performing this song on screen are Ashish Kumar and Indrani Mukherjee. I request other knowledgeable readers to correct me in case I am in error.

The storyline of the epic ‘Ramayan’ is quite well known. After Shri Ram departs from Ayodhya to spend fourteen years as an ascetic in the woods, Bharat ji makes one attempt to bring him back. He goes to meet him at Chitrakoot. The entire portrayal in this epic is a guidance for the right things to do in life. The meeting at Chitrakoot is very significant. The various dialogues that happen here are so full of deep learnings for mortal humans, on how to conduct themselves in real life. The decision at this juncture is that Bharat ji will return to Ayodhya, and continue look after the administration of the kingdom, and take care of the family and the people. Shri Ram along with Sita ji and Lakshman ji will continue his stay away from Ayodhya, till the specified time.

Bharat ji returns with the ‘charan paduka’ (sandals) of Shri Ram, and places them on the throne of Ayodhya. And he places himself on the ground next to the throne, while administering the kingdom, asking for inspiration and guidance at every step, from the ‘charan paduka’. He further resolves that he will not stay in the palace, for the duration that Shri Ram is traveling in the woods. He also has a hut made for himself in a small village, Nandigram, next to Ayodhya, and stays there only. Even inside the hut, he does not sleep on the ground. He digs a cavity or a trench in the ground, a couple of feet deep, and he sleeps at that level. He says he will not sleep on the same ground on which Shri Ram is walking bare footed for fourteen years. He forsakes all the comforts and luxuries, and also all the pleasures and shared nearness in his own personal life. His spouse, Mandavi, stays in the palaces, but they do not share any proximity.

The tale and the teachings of ‘Ramayan’ are the best examples of personal sacrifices that individuals make for the sake of their dear ones, and for the sake of moral and uprightness in life. I may be digressing here, but I would like to briefly tell about the role of Shatrughan, the youngest of the four brothers, in these complex circumstances.

It is stated that Lakshman ji had taken a vow that he would not sleep for all the time that Shri Ram is away from home, and that he would always be standing guard for the safety and well being of his elder brother and bhabhi (sister in law). What is not well known is that even Shatrughan ji followed a similar stringent regime. All during the day, he would be assisting Bharat ji with the matters of the kingdom. And in the night, he would make one round of the kingdom, and then come and sit on a stone at the gates of the kingdom, keeping vigil, till dawn.

Taken in the right spirit, this tale is the pinnacle of a visionary and inspirational lesson. To keep the honor of a promise, all the four brothers make unparalleled sacrifices. One leaves home with the resolve to live like an ascetic in the woods, for fourteen years. Another resolves to accompany him to secure the comfort and safety of his elder brother, forsaking even sleep. The third brother declines to sit on the throne, gives up his own comforts and resolves to also live like an ascetic for the same period, albeit in his own kingdom. He also resolves to sleep in a pit below the ground, and not on the ground on which his elder brother walks barefoot. And the fourth brother, also forsakes his comforts, and sleep, keeping vigil over a kingdom which all acknowledge belongs to the eldest brother. All the four brothers forsook family life for the duration of this exile. A tale like this has no parallels anywhere in the annals of world history or literature.

This is a wonderfully crafted song, that is simultaneously moving at two levels. Both the levels are expressions of love. But one level is expressing love for a beloved spouse, and at the other level, the love being expressed is for a beloved elder brother. The expression of love in the second level is amounting to love for God Himself. Mandvi, the wife of Bharat ji, is calling out to her husband, expressing her emotions of missing him, and feeling incomplete within herself. Bharat ji is singing the same song at the same time, only that his call is directed towards Shri Ram, reminding Him that his (Bharat ji’s) life is in a precarious balance, if He does not return on time, as promised.

A lovely melody created by Vasant Desai, and a memorable song this one is.

Missing Films of 1960s – 48
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Going by just the numbers, possibly the ‘Tarzan’ genre of films is the longest such category of films in the Hindi film industry. In the first five decades (from 1931 to 1980), I have tried to pick out the filmography by manual browsing through the Geet Kosh, I am able to locate a total of 15 films that starts with the word ‘Tarzan’ – and this might well be a record in the history of Hindi films.

Debut film for today is one of these Tarzan films – ‘Tarzan Aur Circus’. This 1965 film is produced under the banner of Sargam Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Shiv Kumar. The brief list of actors includes Azad, Chitra, Sherry, Sundar, Sujata, Rajan Kapoor etc.

The film has six songs listed. All songs are from the pen of Madhukar Rajasthani. And the music is composed by the duo of Husnlal Bhagatram.

The debut song is rendered by Asha Bhosle. The song is an ‘invite’ song in which the lady is trying to incite the gentleman to come and take refuge under the shadow of her tresses. The words by Madhukar Rajasthani are certainly very meaningful. Madhukar Rajasthani, a Hindi poet of significant fame, had some limited forays into the Hindi film industry. He has approximately 18 films to his credits, writing under two names – Madhukar and Madhukar Rajasthani.

A breezy melody from Husnlal-Bhagatram, enjoy this catchy rendition by Asha Bhosle.

Missing Films of 1960s – 47
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The debut film for today is the stunt film ‘Faulaadi Mukka’ from 1965. Interesting to note that the production company is Madras Films, Bombay. The film is directed by S Azeem. The lead actors are Azaad and Indira. The supporting cast is listed as Kammo, Sherry, Murad, Sadhana Khote, Babu Raje, Nazeer Kashmiri, Ram Raseela, Mubarak, Lala Bhaiya, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Tuntun, Baburao Pehalwan, Pehalwan, and Julian etc.

This obscure film has recently become available online – the complete film and its songs are available as video clips online. The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. The songs are written by three lyricists – Akhtar Romani, Tabish Kanpuri and Saba Afghani. The song presented today is penned by Akhtar Romani. Music is by Iqbal. It is to be noted that this music director is not the same person as Iqbal Qureshi. The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur.

The song is performed on screen by Indira. In the video clip of the song, we also have a brief glimpse of Muraad, watching Indira singing. The song is a ‘missing the loved one’ genre song, as the young lady describes how much she is missing her beau.

Enjoy.

तड़पे जिया तेरे प्यार में
आ आ आssss
ओ ओ ओssss

ख्वाब हमारा टूट ना जाये
साज से नग़मा रूठ ना जाये
दिल की सदा है पुकार में
आजा रे आजा पिया
तड़पे जिया तेरे प्यार में
आजा रे आजा पिया
तड़पे जिया तेरे प्यार में
आ आ आssss
ओ ओ ओssss

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 3

‘इ’ – इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो

 

मेरी आवाज़ के पीछे चले आओ
चले आओ
चले आओ॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, only if it were possible in this physical world. The only recourse is to listen to the recordings. That charisma is going to remain alive, till the time there is music on this earth. The magic of Rafi Sb’s voice will never cease.

Moving ahead with the next instalment of this series. Picking up next letter ‘इ’, I bring to the blog this wonderful favourite song, which has become a rarity these days. I could not find this song online. Another collector in his own channel has, with deliberation, posted a very short clip of this song. I can see comments from other listeners, requesting for posting the complete song. But of course, some people, you know. . .

The song is from the film ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’ from 1962. The film is produced under the banner of Roopvani Films and is directed by Vasant Painter. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Indira, Heeralal, Ratnamala, Pal Sharma, SK Shukla, Baby Shobha, Kalpana, Mohan Choti, Arun, and Polson amongst others.

Only four songs are listed for this film. The songs are written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music direction is by Sudhir Phadke.

In this song, the voice accompanying Rafi Sb’s, is of Asha Bhosle. The song has such an endearing flow, and when it comes to end after two antaraas, it seems almost abrupt. It builds into such a comfortable listen that, when it ends, the feeling it leaves behind is – ‘it ended too soon, there should be more’. Simple words, simple melody, rendered with deliberate softness and slowness. What a lovely song which is full of sadness of separation. Very touching.

Song – Is Jag Mein Kahin Bhi Rahiyo (Pyaar Ki Jeet) (1962) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

ye lahu nahin hai pag mein
aasha ka lahu behta hai
tum sun jo sako to sun lo
beh beh ke tumhen kehta hai
aasha ko tod na jaiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

is lahu ko ik din sajni
sindoor banana hoga
teri maang sajaani hogi
doli mein bithaana hoga
us din ki khoj mein rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

ये लहू नहीं है पग में
आशा का लहू बहता है
तुम सुन जो सको तो सुन लो
बह बह के तुम्हें कहता है
आशा को तोड़ ना जइयो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

इस लहू को इक दिन सजनी
सिंदूर बनाना होगा
तेरी मांग सजानी होगी
डोली में बिठाना होगा
उस दिन की खोज में रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
