I count the minutes the days the hours. . .
I count the stars. . .

Days, then weeks, then months – on to years and decades. The march of time incessantly continues. Superimposed on this unremitting progression is a calendar that allows us to measure passages of time. The philosophers of yore had no tools other than observation and contemplation, by which they used to measure natural phenomena. And then this measurement and contemplation over long periods of time uncovered patterns of celestial movements which tied into the the design of changing climate on earth. And thus was born the concept of calendar and measures of years. Over a period of time it got refined into a detailed structure that we now see as twelve months and 365 days. Of course with further refinements of leap years and leap centuries to make accurate adjustments to synchronize the this framework with the precise movement of Sun in our skies.

As aeons progressed, the year became a substantive measure of passage of time that fitted well into the cycle of seasons, and hence into the cycle of agriculture and farming of crops. This was the basic standard that started it all – there is nothing more critical in the world than food for survival. Air and water are available, but food – it has to be grown.

So the year became a standard of passages in life. The human life, its works and its achievements got tied with the cycle of years. Age of humans, education, performance measures of all kinds et al, got tied to the cycle of years. Longevity of relationships and the apparent joy of happiness, trust and loyalty, financial turnovers – you name it. Everything happens with the passage of years.

And the year also become the benchmark of celebrations, be it birthdays, anniversaries etc., everything is in terms of number of years.

And this pyramid is completed when we celebrate the passage of the ‘year’ itself. From time immemorial, different races, different nations, different belief systems, different working systems, and more – have identified their own regulated time points within a year, when the completion of one year is announced. Within our own country we have multiple celebrations around the year, when we announce the dawn of a new year. And so have many other countries, religions and sects of people.

The Gregorian calendar is the most prevalent and accepted calendar around the world at present times. And hence the start of a fresh year as per this calendar is also a celebration that has been accepted worldwide. Come 1st January, and the dawn of the New Year is celebrated across all nations and across all time zones. So that brings us to the celebration of the New Year on our blog also.

Over the past thirteen plus years, we have celebrated this day fourteen times, starting with 1st January 2009, and counting up to today i.e. 2022. As I tried to trace out the songs which are specifically New Year celebration songs, I could locate only 11 songs that have been used so far on this blog. No doubt the celebration and greetings messages are contained in some more posts that are dated 31st Dec and 1st Jan. But not all those songs are specifically New Year celebration songs. Here is the list of these eleven songs. In case I have missed any, please leave a comment, and I shall update this table.

Our dear Prakash Chandra ji has been very diligent with ferreting out songs for special occasions, and he has been very helpful in the past in getting details about New Year celebration songs to Atul ji and myself. Actually two of his suggested songs are still waiting. As I was trying to use one of them for this post, I discovered that the links provided were not functional at this time. So for today, we are using this song from the 1977 film ‘Zehreeli’. The film makes its debut on our blog today.

‘Zehreeli’ is a run-of-the-mill crime and punishment tale. A B-grade movie, that most likely came and went without raising much interest. The film comes from the production house of Amba Films,Bombay and is directed by VN Reddy, who is also the cinematographer of this film. The star cast of this film is listed as Neetu Singh, Shailendra Singh, Bindu, Jalal Agha, Imtiaz, Virendra, Jairaj, Purnima, Sharat Saxena, Jagirdar, Satish Arora, Nandita Thakur and others.

As per Geet Kosh, there are three songs in this film. The music director for this film is Sharda, whom we better know as a singer.  As I check the MD details on the blog, we already have four songs on board, that have been composed by her. This now is the fifth song composed by her to be showcased here.

Two songs of this film are penned by Vithalbhai Patel and one song is written by Abhilaash. This song is from the pen of Vithalbhai Patel. The singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi and Aarti Mukherji. On screen, Bindu is lip syncing the voice of Aarti Mukherji. I had a hard time trying to identify the gentleman who lip syncs Rafi Sb’s voice. The name is M Naidu, and he is also the choreographer for the film. I must thank my dear friend Ahsaan Bhai, an ardent fan of Rafi Sb, for this identification.

The song is somewhat peculiar. It has only one stanza after the mukhda, and it was also an exercise to confirm that this is the complete version. The audio of the song, and also the song on screen has a longer duration. More than half the duration of the song is simply music and dance by Bindu. Oh well, the powers that may be. It is a song of Happy New Year message, so here we are.

This is the opening song of the film immediately after the credits are displayed on screen.

And so, it is a goodbye to the dear 2021, and a welcome to the fresh and new 2022.
Wishing all readers, friends and fellow band-wagoneers, a Very Happy and Peaceful New Year.

हे
जवां समा जवां बहार
चमन मुस्कुराया
गया साल गया और नया साल आया
जवां समा जवां बहार

हर नज़र में प्यार की है रोशनी
मुस्कुरा रही है नई ज़िंदगी
हर अदा लगे हमें भली भली
बाहों में आ गई है हर खुशी
मुझसे कोई मुझको ही चुरा गया
आँखों में तारे सजा गया

‘Chaalu Mera Naam’ (1977) was directed by Krishna Naidu for BC Deora Films, Bombay. This B grade movie had Vinod Mehra, Mahendra Sandhu, Vidhya Sinha, Helen, Madan Puri, Anwar Hussain, Deven Verma, Nazneen, Maruti, Jagdish Raj, Prakash Thapa, Radheshyam, Ramesh Deo, Chandrashekhar Vaidya, Sajjan, Sulochana Latkar, Anand Girdhar, Gurbachan Singh etc. in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has been covered so far.

Here is the second song from ‘Chaalu Mera Naam’ (1977) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a celebration song (birthday celebration?) where Helen and Vinod Mehra (in disguise ?) perform this song and dance. Villains are in attendance in full strength , as we can notice in the picturisation.

I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what is going on in this picturisation.

The song itself is quite wonderful to listen to. It reminds me of music of ‘Don’ (1978), composed by the same music director duo. Sadly, this movie, which predates ‘Don’ by one year could not take advantage of such a fantastic sounding song.

It is a nice song that has been forgotten with time, mainly because the movie failed at the box office.

Blog Day :

4749 Post No. : 16484

So. Finally it is official.

We are teenagers now, the first step into the growing up years. The childhood years left behind and now the coming of age years are starting.

What started off as a ‘let’s-try-it’ hobby run with the simplest of the simple philosophical musings – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li“, has come of age today and has blossomed into a huge tree with thousands of branches spread out, with roots that are deep and strong, and are full of conviction. A tree that provides shade in terms of solace to the lovers of music, which in turn are spread out all over the globe. This is the world tree of music and songs. This is a tree that has a flavor for every palate, a tree that has fruits of everlasting tastes for the connoisseurs, a tree that conserves and perpetuates that enchanting phenomena that is the lovely Hindi Film Music – this is a tree that has many different meanings and many different treasures for the seekers of pleasure in music. There is a whole universe of music that has  settled itself around this tree. Although the desires abounded for flowers, but when none were forthcoming this direction, the protagonist settled for the proverbial thorns to start with. That humble gesture ensured that flowers of all shades and colors, and also, flower bearers of all tastes and wonders, kept on coming together one by one, till a complete orchestra of performers was formed, and the bandwagon got its name.

Thirteen years and counting. And if you talk of counting, here are some counts that will really make you happy with wonder.

Do you know that we have a visitor to this blog, every thirty seconds – the total count (and still counting) is upwards of 14.5 million visitors. Now that is a number to really wonder about.

Do you know that we have been averaging quite, quite close to one new film per day since the inception of this blog. 4749 days today and 4480 films showcased. And oh yes, that is not counting the Non-Film songs categories. Adding them categories, we shall surely be at 1+ new film or new non-film song category per day. Isn’t that a wow that makes one feel like flying.

Do you know that the average daily rate of posting is upwards of three posts per day. Try doing that seven days a week, 365 days a year, and continuously at that rate for 13 years. Try writing a letter each to three friends every day, day on day, for 13 years. My, does that no yet boggle the mind.

And that is where the superlatives start ceasing to have an impact.

13 years – 4,749 days – 16,484 posts. . .

And just ONE person.  Now isn’t that something to boggle the google. Especially when we know it is a labor of love, and that it is not an endeavor for remuneration. Ah yes, it does finally boil down to love. As does of course, everything else in this universe.

That one person, carrying the entire earth on his shoulders, like the legendary Atlas. Not pausing for even a day to rest. Of course yes, there have been rarities that we have had dot days. But in the final count, the averages will speak for themselves. No matter how many runs and how many centuries – double, triple – any other batsman has scored, the Don Bradman remains the Don Bradman when the averages are calculated.

Atul ji, over the years that we have been associated for this endeavor, we have completely used up all the possible epithets and adjectives to address our appreciation of your work. And now, we are at a loss to articulate this emotion any further. And will finally end up saying these lines that I borrow from another legend – ABBA,

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance, what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

And not just to me – to this entire world, a compilation that is sans any peers. Who would have thought it could have been possible. Your own words have been that your earliest flights of imagination brought you to a number of maybe 2,500. And that then you would rest.

Aah, but for the passion this ignited, within yourself, and within this motley crew of the musical bandwagon. The counter is ticking oh so close to 16,500 posts. And not a day’s breather seems to be in view. Mightier and stronger and higher we ride the Olympian altitudes. And the bandwagon keeps chugging along, day on day, week on week, month on. . .

I just thought of taking a look at the date of 19th July across our travels. We have had a total of 68 posts that have been celebrating this anniversary, after the intial 19th July post of 2008. Seven posts in 2009, 4 posts in 2010, 5 posts in 2011, 6 posts in 2012, 5 posts again in 2013, then on to 7 posts once again in 2014, 5 posts in 2015, and wow, a whopping 8 posts in 2016, back to 4 posts in 2017, aah – 3 posts in 2018, 4 posts in 2019, back up to 6 posts in 2020, and then today, 4 posts again to celebrate this wondrous milestone. With songs posted across the entire spectrum of decades, from 1936 all the way up to 2002, the celebrations of this anniversary have been multifarious and varied.

Ah but let me not bore you with any more statistics and analyses. And bring you to this song for the celebration today.

Geeton Ka Sansaar Yahaan Par

Took me a while to locate this wonderfully complementary theme song for this celebration. And for its rarity, it is – sorry, it was not yet available online. The film is ‘Nai Reet’ from 1948. The film itself makes a debut on our blog today.

The film has been produced under the banner of India Film Corporation, Bombay and is directed by Shubh Karan Ojha. This relatively obscure film that probably did not garner much attention and box office receipts when it was released in 1948, has the cast listed as Sulochana Chatterjee, Geeta Bali, Rajendra, Krishankant, Tiwari, Badri Prasad, Tara Bai, Leela Mishra, and Ramesh Sinha. Most names are familiar, and I am sure the full cast would be carrying more names.

The film has 8 songs in total. All the songs are written by a team of two songwriters in collaboration – Bal Krishan Gupta and Ratan Kumar Gupta. The footnote that is carried in the Geet Kosh, succinctly states that – “As per the information recieved from Lyricist Bal Krishna Gupta all songs this film were written by both Lyricists working together, i.e. `Kumar-Gupta` (Ratan `Kumar` Gupta + Bal Krishna `Gupta`. However the records carry the name as `Kumar Gupta`.” So by this input, we would also use the lyricist’s name as Kumar-Gupta.

The music is by SK Pal, and the singing voice is that of Meena Kapoor.

And the words – they oh so well sum up the emotions of this celebration today – that here is a universe of songs that has been put together for us.

गीतों का संसार यहाँ पर
मुसकानों का मेला है
पत्ती पत्ती झूम रही
हर फूल में जादू फैला है

A world of songs is here
It is a festival celebration of smiles
Every leaf is swaying with delight
There is a joyous magic spread through every flower

मैं भी अपनी झोली लाई
भर लेने को बिखरी दौलत
मैं भी दौड़ी दौड़ी आई
क्या छोड़ूँ क्या चुन लूँ इस में
लगता बड़ा झमेला है

In haste I come here
To gather this treasure spread about
I try to garner it all in my arms
And the mind is in a dilemma
What all shall I take
And what all shall I leave

एक अनोखा बाग है दुनिया
सुन्दर सुन्दर प्यारा प्यारा
मानो मीठा राग है दुनिया
पागल मन मेरा मस्ती में
कली सा खिल खिल खेला है

What a joyful garden this world is
So beautiful and lovely
The whole world is a sweet melody
And my mind is untamed in passion
Blossoming like new buds playing

Yes, all these emotions run through the mind when I look at this incredible and phenomenal treasure of enchanting melodies – this world of songs, here, with us.

A grand celebration for this inception day milestone.

A wonderful musical greetings to all readers and all members of the musical bandwagon.

And a bagful of wishes and blessings, that this tree may only proliferate further, day by passing day.

And that this journey may never cease.

तमन्ना है ये साथ चलते रहें हम ना बीते कभी ये सफर. . .

Today’s song is from the film Bhaijaan-1945. It was made by United films, Lahore. Directed by S.Khalil, it had music by Shyam Sundar. The songs were by Partau Lukhnavi. The film had 9 songs. The cast of the films was Noorjehan, Shahnawaz, Meena, Karan Dewan, Anis khatoon, Ansari, Nazir Kashmiri and others.Some of the songs shot on Noorjehan were sung by Nurjehan in the film, but the 78 RPM records of these songs were by Zeenat Begum. There are 4 such songs. This information is from the recordist Anant Thakur, as mentioned in HFGK. Anant Thakur is the same person whose name appeared as the Director of film Chori Chori-56, in later years.

The story of the film was written jointly by Ismat Chugtai and S.Khalil. Dialogues and songs were by Partau Lukhnavi. This film was the maiden venture of the United films. The producers of this film were Khalil and Murad. Though a small company, it is a wonder how they could get big stars like Noorjehan. The film was released on 15-9-1945 at the Imperial Cinema in Bombay. As per review of the film , which appeared in the Film India magazine of November 1945, the film did a better business than expected.

The story of this film is about a Muslim middle class family. From the film Qaidi-1940, there were many Muslim social films made by Fazli brothers, Mehboob Khan, K.Asif and some others. This went on till 1947 and after a sizable gap, some Muslim social films were made in late 50s and 60s. The story of film Bhaijan-45, as given By shri Kamlakar pasupuleti ji, in his book, “Forgotten movies on Muslim Culture, 1933 – 1947″ is given here….

This is the story of two well educated, cultured brothers, Nawab Afsar (Shahnawaz) and Nawab Anwar (Karan Dewan). Afsar is married to Sarwari Begum (Anis Khatoon) but falls in love with Benazir (Noorjehan)-a dancer. A child is born and Sarwari’s sister Shahida comes for her help. Anwar falls in love with her and their marriage is fixed. Anwar comes to know about Afsar’s involvement in Benazir and he goes to her asking her to keep away from his brother. She agrees, but falls in love with him.

A relative of Afsar, Shaukat (Nazir Kashmiri) who lives with them wants to marry Shahida and so spreads rumours that Anwar is in love with Benazir. One day Afsar finds Anwar in Benazir’s house and believing Shaukat’s stories, quarrels with Anwar and asks him to leave the house. Anwar leaves and proceeds to Bombay to look for a job. With this tension, Afsar falls sick and on Sarwar’s request, Benazir nurses him back to health. Learning about Anwar’s exit from this house, Benazir decides to leave the theatre and move to Bombay.

Meanwhile Afsar comes to know the tricks of Shaukat and throws him out. Shaukat goes to Shahida’s parents and tells stories about Anwar. They believe him and break Anwar-Shahida’s marriage. However, Sarwari informs all details to her parents. They ban Shaukat and the marriage is re planned. Anwar meets with an accident in Bombay. Knowing this, Afsar goes to Bombay and the brothers get united. Considering Anwar’s love for Shahida, Benazir decides to go out of his life and commits suicide. So, all is well and both families live happily thereafter.

This small budget film did good business. Dialogues were in simple Urdu. Every role was done nicely. Director Khalil went on to direct some more films. He directed 7 films only, namely Jhankaar-42, Nai Zindagi-43, Bhaijan-45, Shahkar-47, Sartaj-50, Gunehgar-53 and Benazeer-64. He had written 7 songs in the film Tajmahal-41.

In this film the role of Afsar was important and was done effectively by actor Shahnawaz, who later on migrated to Pakistan and did better there than in India. Shahnawaz Khan, known only as Shahnawaz, was born on 18-9-1906 in Hyderabad Deccan. His father was a Major in Hyderabad’s Nizam Army. During his school education, he used to act in dramas. After Matriculation, he joined a Govt. Service in Hyderabad state. He was, however, keen on joining films and dramas. After 5 years, he left the job and started a Motor car business. In that connection, he would visit Bombay often and try his luck at different studios. Finally, his efforts bore fruit and he got a Villain’s role in film Bharat ka laal-36, in which he was listed as S.Nawaz. It was a stunt film made by the Kadam brothers (Harischandra rao and Chandra rao Kadam), with Master Bhagwan as the Hero.

After this, he never went back to Hyderabad. Then came his films Daulat-37, Toofani khazana-37, Rangila Mazdoor-38, Jungle king-39, Sardar 40 etc etc. In 1940, he joined Bombay Talkies and worked in films. He was apparently in Devika Rani’s camp. He was seen in Punarmilan-40, Bandhan-40, Jhoola-41, Naya Sansar-41, Kismet – 43 and Hamari Baat-43. He also worked in Masterji-43, Police, Parakh and Anban-44, Zeenat, Bhaijan and Humayun-45 and few more films. In all, he did 35 films in India. In 1948, Shahnawaz migrated to Pakistan. He was welcomed there. He did 41 films in Pakistan (32 Urdu and 9 Punjabi). Some of his films were quite famous, like Aansoo-50, Sassi-54, Ayyaz-60 etc.

Shahnawaz died in Karachi on 18-6-1971. His last released film was Nek Parween-75.

Today’s song is sung by 3 unidentified female voices and a chorus. HFGK mentions this song as a Chorus song only. The music of this film does not justify the image of Shyam sundar.

Today’s song is from film Shri Ganesh Mahima aka Shri Krishna Vivah-1950.

Mythological films have been my weakness from the beginning. When I was around 10-12 years of age, I would be a very happy, willing and enthusiastic escort to family elders-especially ladies, going for a Bhakti Pradhan film. What I liked in these films was the trick scenes and fantastic costumes. later on I realised these films also provided lot of religious knowledge in the formative years.

Most mythological films were based on stories from Ramayan and Mahabharat. But many films were also using stories from various Puranas like Shiv Puran, Vishnu Puran etc. There was no dearth of such stories, what with 18 Puranas and 2 Epic books. Stories of Puranas etc have some hidden meanings, which one has to look for. Few years ago,in one of my posts, I had explained how the Dashavatars of Lord Vishnu were actually the story of evaluation of Life on Earth. The first avtar of Matsya( the fish) explains us how life on earth began in water.The second avtar of Koorma (the Tortoise) told us the development of Amphibians who started living on land and water. So on and so forth

In Tretayug, Shri Ram came and in Dwapar Yug, Shri Krishna was incarnated by Lord Vishnu. Shri Ram gave a lesson on how to be an ideal son, husband, friend and a King, but Krishna taught us how to be a street smart person and win over enemies skillfully. I feel in today’s times, Krishna is more relevant than Ram. Krishna also taught us how to be a happy person and enjoy everything.

Like religious stories , there is no shortage of Gods also, in our Religion. This is actually one of the plus points of Hinduism. Each community can and will have its own version of God. Many Gods, but basics are never compromised. Everyone knows there is only ONE GOD, having a different version to suit the worshipper. Examples are, Fishermen have God in the matters related to Sea and Tribals in forests worship Gods made of Wood. We all know that these are all symbols and God lives in our Hearts.

One can find stories of most popular Gods like Ram,Krishna, Ganesh, Hanuman, Shiv ji, Vishnu etc, but somehow the film world has ignored Bramha, Saraswati, Shani deo, Surya dev, Kartikeya etc. These are the Gods for whom even temples are few. Kartikeya (elder son of Shankar-Parvati) is worshipped in south as Kumara swami. These Gods do appear in some films for few minutes, but exclusive films on them are missing. Now that Mythology is present only on TV, such films have become rare these days.

Our Indian film makers will never fall short of subjects for their films. They can combine any stories and make a Hybrid film- like for example, Sindbad,Alibaba and Alladin-1965. They can give families and children to famous characters like Zimbo ka Beta, Alladin ki Beti etc. The worst molestation has been done to the famous character of Tarzan. He is combined with, Capt. Kishore, Delialah, King kong, Circus, Cobra, Gorilla, Hercules, Jadugar, jadui Chirag, Jalpari and a Fairy. Tarzan is provided with a Mehbooba, Beta and Beti. Tarzan has been sent to Delhi, Paristan, Fairyland and even in a wonder car. I feel pity for Edgar Rice Burrows who must tired of turning in his grave !!!

Film Shri Ganesh Mahima aka Shrikrishna Vivah-50 is also a combination of stories from Ganesh Puran and Bhagwat Puran. In Ganesh Puran, there is a story that once The Moon laughed at Ganesh. Ganesh was angry and he gave a curse to the Moon. Moon came on his knees and then the curse was modified that whosoever sees the Moon on only Ganesh Chaturthi night, will be falsely accused of theft. In our childhood there was a rumour that to ward off the false accusation of theft, if you throw stones on somebody’s house and he abuses you, then the curse disappears. Some naughty boys used to do this and get abuses profusely !

In Bhagwat Puran, the story of Shrikrishna’s marriage to Satyabhama is described. In this film,both these stories are interwoven skilfully. The story of this film, as noted by me in my diary, is thus……

Great and Miraculous powers are attributed to Shri Ganesh the benefactor of mortals as well as the immortals. Such a benign being was once laughed at by Chandra only to be cursed by him. Realising his folly, Chandra begged for forgiveness and the curse was modified by the merciful divinity to be effective only on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. He ordained that anybody looking at the moon on that night will be a victim of false accusations.

It was on such a day that Shri Krishna unwittingly looked at the moon in the night and had to suffer the indignity of being falsely accused of theft of Syamantak Mani. This jewel was acquired by Satrajit, one of the Yadavas as a boon from God Sun. Shri Krishna had sent Narad to Satrajit expressing his desire to possess the Mani. The events took such a turn that there was circumstantial evidence against Shri Krishna who happened to be at the Chambers of Satrajit’s daughter Satyabhama, devotee of Lord Krishna on the night prior to Satrajits losing the Mani. Shri Krishna was shocked at such allegation made by Satrajit and Shatadhanva ( Another Yadava) who had been promised by Satrajit the hand of his daughter Satyabhama.

Shri Krishna took upon himself to find out the jewel and redeem it to its rightful owner only to clear himself of the allegation. A search party was organised which came across the dead body of Prasain, a carcass of lion and also the foot-prints of a bear blazing a new trail which when followed led the party to a cave. Shri Krishna went inside the cave telling the followers to wait at the cave entrance for seven days and if he did no return by then, to go back to Dwarka. Inside the cave Shri Krishna found the Syamantak Mani and also Jambuwanti, the daughter of the powerful bear king Jambuwant. There ensued a fight between Shri Krishna and Jambuwant lasting for twenty one days. The people at the entrance of the cave returned as per instruction after the seventh day. The duration of this fight gave Shatadhanva a real chance for villainy. He puts in an all over effort to win the hand of Satyabhama who would marry none but Shri Krishna. Jambuwant after losing the battle gave away his daughter in marriage and Syamantak Mani as dowry to Shri Krishna.

Coming to Dwarka, Shri Krishna returned the jewel to its rightful owner, Satrajit repented and made amends by giving away his daughter to Shri Krishna in marriage. Shatadhanva came to know of this alliance and made short work of the unsuspecting Satrajit and decamped with the Mani. Shri Krishna brought justice to the evil doer and the villain Shatadhanva fell a victim to his famous Sudershana Chakra.

The cast of the film was Mahipal, Meena Kumari, S N Tripathi, Moolchand, Dalapat, Amarnath etc. The film was made by Basant Pictures and directed by its owner, Homi Wadia. Music was by S N Tripathi. In the arena of Mythological, Historical and Religious films, from the 40s to the 60s, the names of Mahipal, Trilok kapoor, Manhar Desai, Prem Adib and Shahu Modak were taken frequently. Similarly,Jeevan as Narad was also popular. All the Heros were handsome and they had a sort of special glow on their faces. Each of them had a special style of portraying roles. Prem Adib was famous for his roles of Ram, Shahu Modak excelled as Shrikrishna with his mischievous smile. Trilok Kapoor means Bhagwan Shankar. Manhar Desai and Mahipal did a variety of roles of different Gods. While Manhar Desai was more active on Gujarati screen, Mahipal worked mainly in Hindi films. His repertoire of roles included films of Mythology, History, Costume and Folk Tales.

Mahipalchand Mahadevchand Bhandari was born in Jodhpur, Rajsthan on 24-11-1919. By 1941 he got his B.A. degree and he also started participating in Kavi Sammelans,with his poetry. His break in films came with Nazrana-42. The film was a flop, but he was employed for writing lyrics.

He acted in Ranjit’s Shankar Parvati-43, Andhon ki duniya-43, Rajkamal’s Maali-44, Narsinh Avatar-44, Banwasi-48, Daulat-49, and Bhishma pratidnya-50. Meantime,he wrote songs for films Aap ki sewa mein-47 and Adalat-48. He did few more films with Homi Wadia and then he started his fantasy films with Wadia. For this, he was trained in Fencing and Horse riding. He worked with Shakeela in 18 films-mostly costume films of C grade. He worked with Meenakumari (4 films), Nirupa Roy (4), Shyama (6), Anita Guha (11) etc

In the 50’s decade,which was the peak for Mythological films with 124 films, his 70 films were released.In the 60s,he did 33 films-including Navrang and finally he did 19 films from 71 to 83. He did total 143 films. Mahipal spent his retired life with family and friends. He died on 15-5-2005. ( Bio adapted from ‘Inhe na bhulana’ Gujarati book by Harish Raghuwanshi ji, with thanks)

Today’s song is sung by Geeta Roy. At this time, she was still new and trying to get hold in film industry. You will love the song and her fresh voice.

Blog Day : 3898 Post No. : 14946

Little earlier in the day, Atul ji mentioned about the timing of posting of Holi songs, and I quote,

Different festivals remain topical for different duration of time. If we do not post a write up within this time then the post loses its relevance. In case of Holi, it is the first half of the day mostly when people are mostly in festive mood, though it spills over to the afternoon as well.

As I am rushing to complete this post, it is already around 6 pm. Yes, the festivities for the day have been over for some time. Mostly the people have cleaned up and many would have had their afternoon siestas too. Maybe the only remaining sign of the festivities from earlier part of the day are the splashes of colored water on walls and floors, which most people would address tomorrow morning. Ah yes, another lingering evidence of the celebration could be some people still in the hangover of the bhaang, maybe still sleeping it off, or if awake, not yet back from the cuckoo land. 🙂

This post is coming somewhat late in the day, but the attempt is cover an important aspect of the celebrations of today. The festival of Holi, for ages now, has been intimately associated with the story of Lord Krishna. And so, the celebration somehow does not seem to be complete without having one song about Holi in Biraj, or Brij, the native place where the child Krishna grew up. There abound many a legends and folk songs that tell of the Holi celebrations when Krishna was in Brij. And the same has also been carried over into the Hindi films. Many a songs of Holi in Hindi films revolve around the stories and pastimes of Krishna.

I present this lovely Holi song from the 1970 film ‘Mastaana’. The lyrics for this song have been sent in by dear Prakash ji.

Produced under the banner of Suchitra and directed by A Subbarao, the cast of actors in this film is Mehmood, Padmini, Vinod Khanna, Bharti, Rehman, Bobby, Shyama, Ramesh Dev, Manorama, Mukri, Leela Mishra, Kamal Kapoor, Shivraj, Paro, Narbada Shankar, Mumtaz Begum, Raj Kishore, Jankidas, Ravikant, Prabhat Kumar, Habeeb, and Guddi.

The song is written by Anand Bakshi and the music composition is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. We have three singing voices in this song – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle and Mukesh. Interestingly, Asha ji’s voice is used as playback for three artists on screen – Padmini, the child actor Bobby who plays the role of child Krishna in this song, and Bharati. Rafi Sb’s voice is used for playback for Mehmood and Mukesh’s voice for Vinod Khanna. Another dear song that I was not aware that it has not yet been posted here.

Interesting part of the song – it uses four different folk dance forms. Initially it is the typical filmi style choreography that is used. Then later in the song, we see the four flavors, and the language of the chorus also gets modified accordingly. First we have the typical Brij rendition and folk dance. Then we have the Punjabi bhangra and Punjabi words in the chorus. This is followed by Gujarati dandia raas, with Gujarati words in the chorus. And then we have the Maharashtra folk dance steps, and Marathi words in the chorus. Very interestingly done. 🙂

Greetings for the festival yet once more before the day is out. Well, it is still daytime in other parts of the world. Khyati Ben is probably just in the process of waking up, and for her, the planning and cooking and the celebration is still to happen. 🙂  Krishna makes his appearance for the festivities and we all wish everyone, a very happy and colorful ambiance of this festival to last and continue through to the next year. And then, we shall have more songs to post. 🙂

Happy Holi.

Colorful greetings to all readers and friends. May this festival of colors, bring happiness and good health, to yourself, and to everyone you know. 🙂  May these colors multiply and spread good cheer across every day in the calendar.

Happy Holi to all.

On this blog, we are celebrating the eleventh iteration of this festival. Statistics is one thing – apart from that, the wonderful fact is that the songs of Holi in Hindi films, seem like a supply with no end. Of course yes, when the films and their directors continue to add more songs celebrating this festival every year.

I bring to your attention, this wonderfully fabulous song of the spirit of Holi, from a really very recent film – ‘Ye Jawaani Hai Deewaani’ from 2013. This film was one of the most successful films of that year, and I am sure you must be aware of it, even though it is possible that your tastes and preferences are rooted in the 1940s and 50s which is the gold standard for melody and music in Hindi films. However, that does not mean that music of the decades after the golden . . . – well it does deserve credit. It does catch your attention, and the music and songs still grow into your mind to become darling memories.

Although I have myself not been paying much attention and time to the music of the current years. But quite decidedly, along comes a film with a blast of music that forcefully captures your attention, and insists on becoming part of your list of favorites. Something quite of this sort happened with this 2013 film, for me. And it started very much with this song.

After a long time, I must say, that I have encountered a song of this festival, that simply takes your breath away. The spirit of celebration, and all the emotions that uniquely make this festival what it is – is not so totally and carefully represented every time. But surely, this song does it.

There is color, lots and lots of it.
There is water – it starts off with that.
There is cheer – for every person who is part of this song, and everyone else who may be listening and enjoying it.
There is music – yes of course.
There is dancing – goodness you must be kidding.
There is ‘bhaang’, and there is noise.
There is a large dipping pool – nay, a large dunking pool.
Oh yes, there is “छेड़ छाड़” – chhed chhaad, there is “ज़ोर ज़बरदस्ती” – zor zabardasti.
There are fair maidens running away to save themselves from being smothered with color and water.
And there are insistent and forceful young charmers who will not take ‘no’ for an answer. Or rather they do not even care what the answer is – they will force the color into your face and hair. They will chase you, and run you down, and cuddle you – and they will be more insistent, the more resistance one puts up.
There are drums.
There is singing – very loud, yes.
There is nonsense lyrics – like “लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई” – lattu padosan ki bhabhi ho gayi.
There are meaningful verses – “ज़ुल्मी ये हाजिर जवाबी हो गई. . .” – zulmi ye haazir jawaabi ho gai.
There is “नोक झोंक” – nok-jhonk – that is very verbal and very physical too.
There is humor, and there is suggestive propositioning – like “अरमानों में बेहिसाबी हो गई” – armaanon mein behisaabi ho gai.
And there is flights of fancy.
And there is uncharacteristic expressions of festivity from unexpected quarters
And there is a glimmer of surprised realizations.
The matters of heart, unexpressed, are just beneath the surface sheen.
And of course there is a shock of unexpected and amazing realizations – yes, this could surely be it.
There is joy of shared happinesses.
There is a loud cheer of good spirit.
And everything, each and every one of these ingredients put together into the mix to convince you – yayyy, it is Holi – get colored, and get wet, very wet.

Amazing, simply and truly amazing – after a long time, comes along a new sound that astonishes the mind with the honesty with which the true spirit of the festival is so sweetly captured. Needless to say it – but yes, I am quite truly floored.

I have not yet seen the complete film. I got introduced to the songs of this film over the past many months. Especially this Holi song was forcefully dumped into my notice just about a year ago, yes around the last iteration of this celebration. Enthused as I was, I could not make and present a post in time for the festival; now coming around to it after a wait of a full year. Even with this passage of time, the charm of this song has not diminished even one bit. I simply do not seem to be getting enough of this song. 🙂

The lyrics are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya and the music is by Preetam. Singing voices are of Vishal Dadlani and Shalmali Kholgade. On screen, the song is performed by Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Kalki Koechlin, Aditya Roy Kapoor and a ton of dancers. Deepika and Ranbir are so truly convincing in the complete free form enjoyment in this song. The movie makes its debut on our blog with this song.

Wishing a grand celebration of this festival today, to all friends and readers. Go out, get doused in colors, make up some fun lyrics – like “लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई” types, and sing it out at the top of the voice. It does not matter – it is Holi. Just down one glass of bhang and then blame it for everything. 😀 😀 😀

Happy Holi – – – celebrate.

अबे चशमिश

कौन चशमिश

होली है॰ ॰ ॰

इतना मज़ा
क्यों आ रहा है
तूने हवा में भांग मिलाया

इतना मज़ा
क्यों आ रहा है
तूने हवा में भांग मिलाया
दुगुना नशा
क्यों हो रहा है
आँखों से मीठा तू ने खिलाया
हो तेरी मलमल की कुर्ती गुलाबी हो गई
तू चली चाल जैसे नवाबी हो गई
तो
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

तेरी कलाई है
हाथों में आई है
मैंने मरोड़ा तो
लगती मलाई है
महंगा पड़ेगा ये
चसका मलाई का
उपवास करने में
तेरी भलाई है
हो बिंदिया तेरी महारगाबी हो गई
के अरमानों में बेहिसाबी हो गई
तेरी तो
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

क्यों नो वेकेंसी की
होठों पे गाली है
जब के तेरे दिल का
कमरा तो खाली है
मुझको पता है रे
क्या चाहता है तू
बोली भजन तेरी
नीयत क़व्वाली है
ज़ुल्मी ये हाजिर जवाबी हो गई
तू तो हर ताले की आज चाबी हो गई
ओ ओ
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

हाँ बोले रे ज़माना खराबी हो गई

हाँ बोले रे ज़माना खराबी हो गई

The Many Colors of Love #30 – The Covenants of Love
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And so wrote the scribe

kar le dil ka sauda dil se
dil milta hai mushkil se
(‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’, 1957)

The transactions of heart are bound, but by just one covenant – it is the treasures of heart in exchange only for treasures of heart. No other exchange is possible, no other exchange is expected, nothing else in this whole wide world can be traded for the treasures of heart. For those who may want to, or expect to transact this exchange for something else, then they do not understand the true meaning of love.

And this thought brings up this song today. The burden of this song reiterates this maxim –

deta hai dil de
badle mein dil ke
ghe ghe ghe ghe
ghe re saaiba
pyaar mein sauda nahin

For the longest of time, I was under the impression that this song is already posted. And the reason for that is, that the song “Jhooth Bole Kauwwa Kaate” has been around on the blog for almost two years now. Being familiar with the film, one clearly remembers that these two songs are tandem songs, presented on screen one after the other – rather one flows into the next. Yes, true that Geet Kosh lists these two songs separately, but somehow in my mind, I have carried this impression that these two are a single song.

So when I posted the song by Narendra Chancalon 10th March (“Beshaq Mandir Masjid Todo“), and I reviewed the status of this film on our blog, I realized that this song is not yet posted – we are following the Geet Kosh convention. Since the day I have posted “Beshaq Mandir Masjid. . .”, it has been kind of an eagerness within, to see this movie yippeee’d here. Part of that is being surprised that songs of this film are not yet all on here.

This particular song is performed on screen by Premnath and Rishi Kapoor.  We are into about a third of the film. The two young hearts are now committed to each other, beyond any repair. Although not of legal age yet, but they want to get married and be partners for life. Premnath is non-committal, in the sense that he would do whatever makes his daughter happy. Pran, on the other hand, is a calculating and a manipulative person, eyeing this relationship with suspicion. As he sees the intensity of his son’s emotions, he decides to make a manipulative move, in an attempt to drive a wedge between the young lovers.

He asks his son to invite his beloved and her family for dinner. The young man is extremely excited. Not worldly wise as his businessman father, he thinks his father is a great man and is agreeing with his son’s wishes and choice for a life partner. Little does he know what his father has planned.

With this joyful and amiable news, he rushes to his beloved’s home, to present the invite himself. At her place, a fishermen’s neighborhood, another wedding is in progress. The ambiance is celebratory. There is singing and dancing, congratulations and the auspicious throwing of rice – in short, the mood is just right to share the supposedly wonderful news.

Without much preamble, Rishi delivers the invite to Premnath. The latter accepts forthwith with the comment that for his daughter’s happiness, he will gladly bow his head at the door of anyone, but he will never bend his knees. And to explain his comment, he breaks out in this song – that in the matters of love it is only the treasure of the heart which is to be exchanged for another treasure of heart. There is no other bargaining chip in the matters of love. Rishi readily joins in this song – the theme is so easily understood and reflected in his own mind. For him too, love is simply a give and take of the treasures of the heart.

Manna Dey starts this song, giving playback for Premnath. Shailendra Singh joins in for Rishi Kapoor. As always, it is a delight to watch a song in an RK film. The complete scenario and the ambiance are so totally focused on the song, its emotions and its renditions. Midway through the song, Dimple makes an appearance, as she is preparing for the next part of the song – yes, “Jhooth Boley. . .”. She is just there for now, not participating – but her face, her eyes are going along with the song that her beau is singing. The emotions expressed by her are so endearing, so freshly young, as she coyly and silently expresses herself in response to the lines that Rishi is performing. This small interlude is so charming, so. . . so winning. Dimple simply stole a million hearts right here in this song. Yes – you guessed it right, I too was smitten, and was in love. 🙂

One word in the lyrics had intrigued me right from the start. It is the word ‘ghe’, ‘घे’. Over the decades, this word has been presented variously and almost always erroneously. Some lyrics wrote this down as ‘khe’, ‘खे’; other places would write it down as ‘le’, ‘ले’; even today, the hindi-geet-mala web page for this song has actually written it down as ‘khel’, ‘खेल’. Wonder how they got to it, it does not even fit into the rendered metre of this line.

Once the internet was available, I had done the search for this word in Konkani language. Given that the entire scenario was a Goan neighborhood, it was only logical to seek this word in the local lingua. In Konkani, the word ‘ghe’, ‘घे’ means ‘to take’. The expression follows the lines which say

deta hai dil de
badle mein dil ke

And the young man, and the chorus responds with

ghe ghe ghe ghe
ghe re saaiba

saying – hey young man, just take this bargain, take.. take.. take.. take..  Once this meaning is known, the lyrics fall in place so beautifully.

‘Bobby’ is so close to the heart, and I mean the film, and Bobby. It appeals to an age, a mind set, and emotions – that I am never going to grow out of. It is 1973 forever.

And the talisman for life is forever – “प्यार में सौदा नहीं”.

[Editor’s Note: The initial lines of this song, which are in Konkani, have been provided by Dr Pradeep Shetty ji, in his comment below. The line is now added to the lyrics below. Thanks Dr Pradeep ji.]

Blog Day : 3820 Post No. : 14819

Hullo to all of Atuldom

Let me start by wishing all you readers a very Happy New Year. I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful 2019, with a lot of happiness, good health and success in whatever you wish to achieve.

Today is the 2nd of January and our Anniversary Page tells me it is the birth anniversary of Sadashiv Amrapurkar, and the death anniversary of David.

But neither of these is the subject of my post today.

Absolutely no disrespect to them, but today’s post is about a couple of other persons who also happen to have their birthday today.

A few days ago, Avinashji contacted me and reminded me that the birthday of two Atulites was coming up. He had a song in mind, and asked me if I could do a post for the occasion.

Now every year around this time (end-Dec/early Jan) I get a bit busier than usual. I have family visiting me from overseas, as it is Christmas vacation in most places around the world. Besides, this year I have some family events also around New Year’s time, requiring me to plan and travel.

So I wasn’t absolutely sure I’d be able to write this post – so I told Avinashji I’d try.

So here I am.

I will not keep you in suspense any longer about the identity of the two Atulites involved.

First, Pradeepji. (I am taking them up one by one so that you don’t stop reading right here. And no, you’re not allowed to skip to the next part of the post. 🙂 )

If some more recent readers of this blog are not particularly familiar with Pradeepji, I can understand. In recent times, he has not been very active on the blog – but he has a long history with it. And when there is a mega occasion, like when the blog completed 10 years a few months ago, we can always expect him to write a post for the occasion.

I’ve known Pradeepji from the early days when he used to comment on the blog. Then we finally got to meet in October 2014, when we had our first Atulites’ gangout in Bangalore. Pradeepji came all the way from Chennai for the event.

It was just wonderful to meet him, as also all the other Atulites who I finally got to meet face-to-face. We had a fantastic time, discussing music (of course!) but also other stuff.

Pradeepji is multi-faceted, in that not only is he a keen lover of music in a passive sense, he also tries to use his tech-oriented mind to look for ways to propagate music. It was Pradeepji who first tried to get our blog onto mobile devices in a manner that could enhance its richness, using features of software like itunes.

Pradeepji was keen to exploit the richness of our blog beyond its existing framework. So, after discussion with Atul and others, he started a project where, when all songs of a film were covered on the blog, he would load that film’s songs onto another platform. This process would involve enriching the data by adding more tags, thus allowing for even more filtering possibilities. To provide an even more nostalgic experience, he would add a poster of the film wherever possible.

I will not discuss this project in more detail because I don’t want to expose my ignorance on it. 🙂 But some of us were happy to join in and help out. I was also involved for a brief period, but there were others who were involved for much longer.

Now, for a film to be eligible to be picked up by Pradeepji for his project, all its songs had to be posted on the blog. There’s no point in doing multiple iterations for the same film. So Pradeepji would wait for a film to be “complete”. And whenever that would happen, he would respond in the comments with a “Yippeeee”. 🙂

And that’s how the project got its name, that’s how the name stuck.

So much so, that when Atul would post the final song of a film here, he’d himself mention that the film is ready to be “Yippeeed”. In other words, ready to be taken over by Pradeepji and his team. 🙂

As a result, for many of us, if we had to represent Pradeepji with one word, it would be “Yippeeee”! 🙂

After that first Bangalore gangout, we had a couple of others too, but Pradeepji couldn’t attend. However I did get to meet him earlier this year on a visit to Chennai. Although it was only for a few minutes, not more than half an hour, it felt really good. We caught up with developments. Pradeepji, multi-faceted person that he is, is busy on multiple projects, developing websites for e-commerce. Mostly out of passion for trying out different things.

From my interactions with Pradeepji, whether face-to-face or otherwise (during the Yippeeee project), I noticed that he is not just a warm person and extremely down-to-earth, he also has a lot of energy and enthusiasm for things. I believe the term for this sort of enthusiastic persion is “zinda dil”?

Anyway, today, on his birthday, I wish him a very happy birthday on behalf of all Atulites.

Now, to our second Atulite birthday today.

If you’ve been sharp enough, you might have picked up a hint already from the way I started this post. It’s not my usual style.

There’s one Atulite who starts posts in this manner – “Hullo to all in Atuldom”.

And that is Peevisie’s Mom.

It’s her birthday also today, and it gives me great pleasure to be able to write this post to wish her on the occasion.

Now Peevisie’s Mom (PM) and I have met a few times more than Pradeepji and I. We live in the same city, so it’s easier to meet up for an occasion. We first met on that first Bangalore Gangout day in October 2014 (the same one that Pradeepji also attended). Thereafter, we met at the next one too, and also on other occasions like when Arunji and Avinashji visited Bangalore, or when Lalitha visited Bangalore (when I first got to meet Peevisie’s Dad too). Besides, we speak on the phone every now and then – usually discussing a post, or she reminds me of an anniversary coming up. 🙂

I talked about Pradeepji’s enthusiasm and his being “zinda dil” – that applies equally to PM too. She too is a very enthusiastic and cheerful person – so much so, that it even tends to rub off on an otherwise gloomy me. Everytime after a conversation with her, usually on the phone for a few minutes, I feel better. And I can’t say that for a lot of people. 🙂

She’s also one of the most active persons on our Atulite whatsapp group, participating in every discussion. But that’s the energy she brings with her – whether on the group, or in conversation or in a post. She’s a wonderfully friendly and warm person – and that warmth is infectious. Which also explains why I feel better after a conversation with her. 🙂

She’s also hugely passionate about HFM and movies – which is what brought us all together to this blog in the first place. But unlike me, her knowledge isn’t limited to any specific eras or genres. For example, I barely know 5 songs of this millennium, she would know almost every film released and its music. No wonder many of the post-2000 songs posted here are from her (and Peevisie herself, of course). And yet she also knows old songs – maybe partly because she also listens to radio or watches song programmes on TV. So her knowledge is definitely wide.

She’s very fond of this blog – we can see that she tries to post on as many anniversary occasions as possible. I remember there was a time when I had more posts here than she did. In fact at that time, I had even a few posts more than Avinashji. But clearly, they were both going to overtake me, because I was hardly posting at that time. She called me up and when this topic came up, she said “bade bhai se aage nikalne ka permission chaahiye”. 🙂 We had a good laugh about it. 🙂

All in all, she’s a wonderful friend to have – and I’m fortunate to have her as a friend.

I wish her too a very happy birthday on behalf of all Atulites.

Now, for the song for today.

It’s a song picked by Avinashji – a fitting birthday song for the occasion. I want to mention here that this post wouldn’t have happened if not for Avinashji’s initiative, so it must be seen as a joint effort by both of us.

The song is “Pam para rum pum” from Trishna (1978), a GP Sippy Productions film. It is sung by Kishore Kumar and the chorus (in which a very young Sadhana Sargam got a chance to sing).

I’ve seen this movie but I don’t recall too much of the story now. It had to do with relationships, a “murder”, suspicion etc, from what I vaguely remember. I need to watch the film again.

In any case, let’s enjoy the song, as we wish both Pradeepji and Peevisie’s Mom a very happy birthday.
Editor’s note-Today is the birthday of Sheela Ji, Avinash ji’s better half’s birthday as well. So happy birthday and many happy returns of the day to her as well.

कैसे भी हों हालात

आज के दिन को यूँही न खोना
आज के दिन को यूँही न खोना
सारे जीवन का मोल
बस प्यारे के दो बोल
सारे जीवन का मोल
बस प्यारे के दो बोल
मुस्कुरा दो
