Today, it is the turn of this 1973 Vinod Khanna starrer – ‘Dhamki’ to join the list of Yippeee films on our blog.

In 1973, it had been five years since Vinod Khanna made his debut with the film ‘Man Ka Meet’ (1968) and two years since he got his first break as a hero (in ‘Hum, Tum Aur Woh’ (1971)). He started his career as a villain, and continued to work with negative and also supporting roles in many films, before graduating into leading roles. His image as an energetic action person, actually brought to him more roles as an action hero. Many of his initial roles are either as a dacoit chief or a police inspector. The film ‘Dhamki’ is not much different. He plays the role of a CBI inspector who works to foils the plans of some foreign agents, trying to take over the control of a small erstwhile kingdom, by eliminating the new teenager heir to the throne. Vinod Khanna, helped by Mehmood Junior takes on this gang and saves the heir and the kingdom from falling into foreign hands.

This film was released, sandwiched between two other significant films of Vinod Khanna, in which he has played very sensitive roles which became better known films of that year. The first is ‘Achaanak’, which reprises the famous Nanavati murder case, and adds another dimension to it. The second is ‘Imtihaan’ in which Vinod Khanna has played the role of a college professor, taking on an educationist role very seriously. In comparison, ‘Dhamki’ may have been treated as just another cops and robbers tale.

The film is directed by Parvez for the banner of Tasveer Movies, Bombay. Interesting to note that Vinod, almost a debutante hero in 1973 was cast opposite to Kum Kum, who by this time was a veteran actress of a little over two decades, although her age does not show that on screen. Others in the list of actors are Ramesh Deo, Bela Bose, Junior Mehmood, Jaishree T, Meena T, Imtiaz, Tiwari, Sham Kumar, Brahm Bhardwaj, Munshi Munakka, Johnny Whisky etc. with special appearances by Helen, Ranjeet and Subhash Ghai.

There are five songs listed for this film. One song, “Kali Se Nazaaron Se Bahaaron Se” is penned by Verma Malik. The remaining four songs have been penned by Asad Bhopali. With the posting of this song, songwriter Asad Bhopali touches the double century milestone. He now has two hundred songs showcased on our blog.

The music is from the mind of that prodigal genius – Ganesh. The readers of this blog are by now very familiar with this name. Associated with an illustrious family of musicians, he is the son of Ram Prasad Sharma, and younger brother to Pyaarelal Ram Prasad Sharma (of the Laxmikant Pyaarelal duo).  In the beginning of 1960s, the name of Ganesh came to be acknowledged as the key contributor to the success of the music of Laxmikant Pyaarelal.  The effect of this impression in the industry was so strong that by the mid 1960s, he got about 10 assignments as an independent music director, even before a single film with his music had even got to the studio floors.

Ganesh was an expert with many instrument and a genius with creating tunes. He had the ability to create newer, fresher melodies that one had to stop and pay attention to. Pick up any film done by him (of which there sadly aren’t many), any song created by him, and as you listen, and if you are not aware of the identity of the music director, you will surely wonder who would it be, the creator of such a lovely melody. Somehow, the combination of the tones, the octaves and the emphases make the tunes created by this hugely talented musician simply touch a very endearing nerve, and the heart simply wants to sing along with the flow of the song.

But alas, recognition and success was not in his destiny. His songs, buzzing with hummable and memorable tunes, played themselves out in B and C grade cinema productions. Some of his songs escaped this banishment to the C grade world, and found a place on the radio waves, and in the mind and memories of listeners. Some such songs have remained in the memories; but then there are many other remarkable creations from him that are being rediscovered through this blog.

The earlier songs of this film that have been posted are,

1.       Chaand Kyaa Hai Roop Ka Darpan
2.       Hamsafar Ho Hamsafar Gham Na Kar
3.       Kali Se Nazaaron Se Bahaaron Se
4.       Yaaron Mujhe Peene Do

Today’s song is a stage dance song, which is performed on screen by Kum Kum, accompanied by. . .  an actress I am not able to place. She is either Jaishree T or Meena T. I request other readers and friends to kindly confirm. As is apparent from the sequence in this video clip, the plan is to eliminate the young heir to the throne by making him sit under a large glass chandelier, which will be made to fall on him at the end of the performance. The hero CBI officer and his side kick have been overpowered and are tied to water pipes in the basement. From the looks of it, all the members of the ‘evil’ gang are present in the audience. I can make out Sham Kumar and Ramesh Deo, and many more that I am not able to name, including a lady in yellow dress. Again, request to the more knowledgeable readers to help identify more people in this clip.

With this song, music director Ganesh now has 57 songs posted on our blog. Given that his total body of work is around 80 to 85 songs, we are close to getting all his songs on board. But for today, ‘Dhamki’ joins the list of films with all songs poster here. Time for another ‘Yippeee’ call.

[Ed Note: Dear Prakash ji has confirmed that the dancer on stage with Kum Kum is Jaishree T. And the lady in yellow dress, sitting in the audience, is Meena T. Prakash ji has also pointed out an error in the list of songs of this film – a case of incorrect cut and paste from another file. He has also pointed out the correction that there are two lyricists credited for this film. Prakash ji, thanks so much for your vigilant inputs, and for helping to update the correct information into this post. 🙂 ]

“Agra Road” (1957) was produced and directed by Ravindra Dave for Nagina Films, Bombay. This crime movie had Shakila, Vijay Anand, Nanda, Bhagwan, Satish Vyas, Amarnath, Krishnkant, Dhumal, Nazi etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the ninth and final song from “Agra Road” (1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

This is a rare song. Only its audio is available and that too just the first stanza. One uploader of this song has joined this first stanza with portions of other songs from the movie and attempted to pass it off as a full song.

I have only provide lyrics of the first stanza. The joined up portions are part of other songs that have already been covered in the blog.

This is the best we can do at present till we come across the full version of the song. Till then we ahve to remain satisfied with just this small portion of the song.

With this song, “Agra Road” (1957) joins the list of movies thatg have all their songs covered in the blog.

And with this fun song, Bharat Vyas has slowly and un-noticeably has completed 300 songs as a lyricist in the blog.


Song-Pocket mein botal haathon mein pyaala (Agra Road)(1957) Rafi, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Roshan

Pocket mein botal
haathon mein pyaala
main hoon bairam ji daaroowaala
daaroowaala

duniya mere khilaaf
ghar ke mere khilaaf
?? mere khilaaf
aur bachche mere khilaaf
ye bhi khilaaf
wo bhi khilaaf
tum bhi khilaaf
sabhi khilaaf
arre waah waah
phir bhi
sunday ke sunday jaaun khandaala
sunday ke sunday jaaun khandaala
main hoon bairam ji daaroowaala
daaroowaala

Gopal Singh Nepali (11 aug 1911-17 april 1963) was born in Bettiah (Bihar). He made his mark in Hindi literature at a young age. His first poem “Bharat Gagan Ke Jagmag Sitaare” was published in 1930 in a children’s magazine edited by Ramvrikshh Benipuri.

Gopal Singh Nepali had made his mark as a poet and he would get invited in kavi sammelans. It is in 1944 that he arrived Bombay to participate in an all Indian kavi sammelan. Sashdhar Mukherji was present in the audience and he was impressed with Gopal Singh Nepali’s poems. Filmistan owner Seth Tularam Jalan signed him up for a four years long contract at Rs 200 per month.

Gopal Singh Nepali made his debut as a lyricist in Hindi movies with “Begam”(1945). He penned all the nine songs of this movie. Naseem Bano
s’s Kaliyon mein kali hoon anaar kali and Ashok Kumar’s Aankhen to huyi band magar dard jagaa re became especially popular and they remain popular to this day. The songs of this movie became quite popular.

Gopal Singh Nepali penned songs in five Filmistan movies. First of them was “Mazdoor”(1945) followed by “Shikari”(1946). “Shikaar”(1946), which was S D Burman’s debut movie as a music director had some superb songs in it, viz, Rangeela rangeela rangeela re and Duniya ne hamen do din rahne na diya mil ke . “Eight Days”(1946) was another movie where Gopal Singh Nepali collaborated with S D Burman.

The net two Filmistan movies of Gopal Singh Nepali were “Safar”(1947) and “Leela”91947), both with C Ramchandra as music director. Maine laakhon ke bol sahe sanwariya tere liye (Leela) and Kabhi yaad kar ke gali paar kar ke (Safar) were among the more popular songs from these movies.

After his contract with Filmistan was over, Gopal Singh Nepali penned patriotic songs in “Ahinsa”(1947).

Gopal Singh Nepali collaborated with Anil Biswas in “Gajre”(1948).Door papeehaa bolaa raat aadhi rah gayi and Kab tak kategi zindagi kinaare kinaare are two especially popular songs from this movie.

Original music director of “Gajre”(1948) was Naushad, whose fevaourite lyricist was Shakeel Badayuni, whereas the producer wanted Gopal Singh Nepali as the lyricist. Naushad agreed to give five songs each to Shakeel Badayuni and Gopal Singh Nepali. But Gopal Singh Nepali put his foot down. Finally he was retained as Naushad was replaced with Anil Biswas. This was one of very few cases where a lyricist had got his way in a Hindi movie.

Gopal Singh Nepali was a man of principles. He refused to work with Kishore Sahu because he had the history of humiliating a few lyricists in the past.

One music director with whom Gopal Singh worked in lots of movie was Chitragupta. They worked together in 18 movies, all in 1950s.

Overall, Gopal Singh Nepali penned around 400 plus songs for around 50 odd movies. Most of these movies were mythological / re;igious movies. Like Bharat Vyas, he had got typedcast in this genre of movies.

He of course could pen songs of other genre too. For instance, Kahaan teri manzil kahaan hai thhikaana (Nayi Raahen), Ankhiyon mein samaate ho dil na chura lena (Maaya Baazaar)

Gopal Singh Nepali had tried his hands at producing films as well under his banners of “Himalay Films” and “Nepali Pictures”, but with disastrous results.

We in this blog know his as a lyricist, but he was much more than that. He was a respected poet of “post chhaayaawaad” genre. His poems were included in school tet books. I in fact first became aware of him because one of his poems was there in my class VII Hindi text book.

Gopal Singh Nepali, having participated in a kavi sammelan, was waiting for a train on platform number 2 of Bhagalpur Railway Station on 17 april 1963 when he suffered a heart attack and died there. He was only 52 years old at that time.

This article is special because it marks the 100th song of Gopal Singh Nepali in the blog. I had quite a few nice songs to chose from as his century song. Finally I zeroed on in this song from “Sati Madalsa”(1955). This song is quite an appropriate song and a representative song of Gopal Singh Nepali because it is a mythological song (his specialisation), and it was composed by Chitragupta, his most frequest music director partner. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, who, like Gopal Singh Nepali and Chitragupta found herself mostly in B and C grade movies those days , and who ended up lending her voice to most Gopal Singh Nepali songs.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keenera ears to help fill in the blanks/ sugggest corrections in the lyrics as applicable.

With this song, Gopal Singh Nepali becomes the 81st artist and 27th lyricist to achieve 100 songs in the blog. Seeing that he is an artist from the 1940s and quite a few of his songs are difficult to locate, putting together 100 songs of Gopal Singh Nepali is quite a creditable feat, I think.


Song-Jab sur alag ho saaz se (Sati Madalsa)(1955) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gopal Singh Nepali, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

Jab sur alag ho saaz se
ae ae
ae ae ae
lay ?? sabhi
bichhde ?? to sur mile
ae ae
payaal bhi bolegi kabhi

naache chham chham
aansoo hardam
mujh birhan ke gaal pe
bol birah ke bol
paayaliya dukhiyaari ke haal pe
dukhiyaari ke haal pe

raha bulbulon ka ik joda
sajni se sajan bichhuda
chaman ujda
ro ke kaati raat andheri
bulbul sookhi daal pe
bol birah ke bol
paayaliya dukhiyaari ke haal pe
dukhiyaari ke haal pe

naari badri ek jagat mein
baadariya yahaan barse wahaan barse
naari ka jeewan paawan ki
rimjhim rimjhim taal pe
bol birah ke bol
paayaliya dukhiyaari ke haal pe
dukhiyaari ke haal pe

jhoom chali main piya milan ko
bedardi mujhe jaane na pehchaane
milan hua to piya na maane
sar maaroon deewaal pe
bol birah ke bol
paayaliya dukhiyaari ke haal pe
dukhiyaari ke haal pe

With this post, the blog has now clocked thirteen thousand two hundred unique songs. It may be so that these century milestone are now an expected regularity. But then, it is these (now) minor milestones, that come together and collectively put together and characterize the larger milestones – A journey of a thousand steps is made up of a thousand steps.

Congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. This, and many, many more such milestones put together, are the entire story of this blog.  The ‘wood’ is the outspread treasure that is dear to us, and every ‘tree’ is a different fruit, different flavor. The ‘wood’ – it is our honor and pride. The ‘trees’ – each one is a feast of different flavor and listening pleasure.

As we saunter about the woods and seek to explore newer flavors, the senses want to come to explore and to taste the rare and untouched flavors. The ritual is consistent and persistent. And the wood, it is rife with trees of un-tasted flavors, some of them so rare that it is a realization and a triumph, to be able to seek them, touch them, feel them, and partake of its flavor.

It is an anniversary also that we are celebrating with this song. In the 1940s and 1950s, there was a music director active whose name is simply Premnath. (Mind you, different from the actor Premnath). Today is the anniversary of the passing away of music director Premnath.

One of the mysterious and enigmatic names in the history of Hindi film music – Premnath belongs to that list of music directors who have a reasonably sized body of work spread over a good number of years; and yet, despite having a recognizable body of work, there is very little of almost nothing known about him. I have searched and checked with some of the more important sources of information relating to Hindi films and film music. But have consistently drawn a blank. Pankaj Raag in his book, ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’, has put in almost a full page to this music director. But the write up is more of a sampling of Premnath’s body of work.

Premnath was born in the town of Gujranwala (now in Pakistan), on 5th July, 1918. His education as well as training in classical music happened in Multan, Lahore and Amritsar. In his early twenties, he gravitated to the nascent Punjabi film industry and Lahore. His did act in small roles – one film identified by Pankaj Raag is ‘Shehar e Khamoshi’. The author also identifies a film ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ from 1938, in which he also sang a song.

In the first half of1940s, he got married and migrated to Bombay in search of a career in films. In 1946, he made his debut in the Bombay film industry as a music director, with the film ‘Rangbhoomi’. With a certain regularity, he would be directing the music for one to three films over a little less than a decade or so.

In 1947 came ‘Dehati’, ‘Pehla Pyaar’ and ‘Chandrahaas’. 1948 saw the release of his most discussed film, ‘Chaand Sitaare’ which carries the popular “Kaali Ghataayen Hain, Thandi Hawaaein Hain” in the voice of Mukesh. As per available information, Premnath was also the producer of ‘Chaand Sitaare’. This film also has some more notable songs in the voices of Shamshad Begum and Geeta Dutt. In 1951 came ‘Alakh Niranjan’ and ‘Maaya Machhindra’. Then there is a gap of a few years, and Premnath reappears as music director in 1959 with the religious film ‘Sati Vaishalini’. In the interim he recorded some songs for the film ‘Qaatil Kaun’, but that one remained unreleased. The career slowly fading away, he appeared as a joint music director for ‘Main Hoon Jaadugar’ (1965) with Nashaad, and for ‘Tarzan In Fairyland’ (1968) with Jimmy (James Singh).

In the few films that he has worked on, there are some notable gems as one gets to listen. The rare song being presented today, in the voice of Amirbai Karnataki Rajkumari Dubey, is a delightful composition. The words are from the pen of Rammurty Chaturvedi. Names that are obscure and unfamiliar, have come together to create a beautiful song that is a pleasure to listen to.

Song – Se Naina, Morey Naina Jhuk Jhuk Jaayen (Dehati) (1947) Singers – Rajkumari, Lyrics – Rammurty Chaturvedi, MD – Premnath

After yet another fairly long absence from the blog, I am back here with this post.

As I said in my previous post, this absence has purely to do with my tendency sometimes to withdraw from social contact and go into a shell. It is a phase I go through and has absolutely nothing to do with any specific individual or group.

Least of all, this blog.

It’s been a while since my last post here.  And to be absolutely honest, I haven’t even been active on the blog recently.

This is for a variety of reasons, none of which is, thankfully, any cause of worry. I go into this shell from time to time. I hope Atul, and my other friends here, know me long enough now to not mind my absence. It is nothing to do with the blog or with them, it is just me and my bizarre-ness. Anyway, it doesn’t matter – what matters is that I’m back here today.

But why today? What’s so special about today? Well, today is special, not just for one, but for two reasons. Firstly, the 8th of March is celebrated worldwide as International Women’s Day. Secondly, it also happens to be the birthday of Sahir Ludhianvi, one of our most celebrated poets and lyricists.  And most people who know me on this blog know what a special place Sahir has in my heart.  I have often posted his songs here, especially on his birth and death anniversaries. I feel that’s the least I can do for him.

As blog milestones go, century milestones of this blog no longer attract as much attention as they used to attract in the past. The fact that there have been as many as 129 such occasions may have led to this “familiarity breeds indifference” attitude on the parts of the regulars.

Century posts are our regular and most frequent causes for celebration in the blog. In the past, we would have such celebrations after every 15-16 days. Now a days, we get to celebrate such occasions at a rather more mature and sedate pace, viz after every 27-28 days.

This post is yet another century post for the blog. It marks the 129th century of the blog, viz 12900th song post for the blog.
