Blog Day :

5307 Post No. : 17396

Today (28 January 2023) is the 16th remembrance day of O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). He ruled the roost in HFM during 1950s and 1960s, and that too on his own terms. Imagine not using the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in his songs and still managing to create great songs. Curiously, he found his playback singer of choice in Lata Mangeshkar’s family itself, in the form of her younger sinter Asha Bhonsle. There is no doubt that it was O P Nayyar who offered Asha Bhonsle the opportunity to become a playback singer second only to her illustrious elder sister.

This association of Asha Bhonsle and O P Nayyar lasted nearly two years before they had an acrimonious break up.

We as music lovers are more interested in music and less on the personal affairs of those creating them. As far as O P Nayyar is concerned, he worked in 73 movies (give or take a few). As many as 50 of his movies, including almost all of his movies of 1950s and 1960s have already been YIPPEED in the blog. The few unYIPPEED movies of those decades are unYIPPEED because the balance songs are unavailable.

So we have to movies in the later part of O P Nayyar’s career, if we want to discuss songs composed by him.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) is one of his less known movie. It was produced and directed by Kamran, a B grade movie maker (Father of Farah and Sajid Khan) for Rainbow Films, Bombay. The movie had Dev Mukherji, Nandita Bose (making debut), Jalal Agha, Rupesh Kumar, Anwar Ali, Nikita, Tiwari, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Anjum, Birbal, Maruti, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begum, Shefali, Raj Rani, Mehboob, Jayshree T etc in it.

The movie flopped and so the songs of this movie had no change to get popular because they were not heard by most music lovers.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog.

As a tribute of O P Nayyar, here is the second sonng from “Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P nayyar of course.

It is a sweet song to listen to. The song sounds like the songs she sang under O P Nayyar’s baton during those years.

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

This song is the 500th song of OP Nayyar in the blog as a music director. This is the final century of O P Nayyar seeing that O P Nayyar composed around 570 songs in all. That means we are within striking distance of covering all available O P Nayyar compositions in the blog.

We take this oppotunity to play our tribute to the legendary music director O P Nayyar.


Song-Chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle (Aisa Bhi Hota Hai)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

ek hansi iski hai saari duniya meri
ek muskaan sau saal ki zindagi
mujhko duniya mein ab aur kya chaahiye
mil gayi hai zamaane ki saari khushi
maine barson jo dekha thha sapna
aaj kismat se poora hua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

har ghadi har samay muskuraata hua
phool sa bachpana meri baahon mein ho
laal mera bada hoke jaaye jahaan
kaamyaabi sada iski raahon mein ho
door har dum rahe gham ke saye
ye hamesha hi meri dua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #
————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1951’ movie ‘Maalti Maadhav’ or ‘Malti Madhav’.

Here is the brief about this movie.

“Malti Madhav-1951’ was directed by M. Nilkanth for ‘Prasann Pictures’.

It was produced by Bhalerao-Shriniwas Joshi.

The cast of this movie included Durga Khote, Anand Marathe, Baby Shakuntala, Indu Pal, Pittu, Sushant, Vasant Shinde, Indu Kulkarni, Ganpat Rao, Gauri, Kelkar, Subodhini, Takalkar, Kumud Lele, Bargir, Suman, Raj Kishore, Sulochana and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.04.1951.

“Malti Madhav” is based on the famous ‘Sanskrit Play’ of the same name by the great poet Bhavbhuti.

Here is the brief about Bhavbhuti and the story of this movie as mentioned on ‘Wikipedia’ and quoted by our Respected Arunkumar ji in his post with a song from this movie presented on the blog on 15.09.2020.

Bhavabhuti was an 8th-century scholar of India noted for his plays and poetry, written in Sanskrit. His plays are considered the equal of the works of Kalidasa. Bhavabhuti was born in Padampura, Vidarbha, in Gondia district, on the Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh border. His real name was Srikantha Nilakantha, and he was the son of Nilakantha and Jatukarni. He received his education at ‘Padmapawaya’, a place some 42 km South-West of Gwalior. Dayananidhi Paramahansa is known to be his guru. He composed his historical plays at ‘Kalpi’, a place on the banks of river Yamuna.

He is believed to have been the court poet of king Yashovarman of Kannauj. Kalhana, the 12th-century historian, places him in the entourage of the king, who was defeated by Lalitaditya Muktapida, king of Kashmir, in 736 AD.

The play is set in the city of Padmavati. The king desires that his minister’s daughter Malati marry a youth called Nandana. Malati has been in love with Madhava ever since she saw him and drew his portrait. Madhava reciprocates, and draws a portrait of her in turn. Malati suspects her father’s motives in falling in with the King’s plans for her. A side plot involves the lovers’ friends Makaranda and Madayantika. The latter is attacked by a tiger, and Makaranda rescues her, getting wounded in the process. After numerous travails, all ends well, with the two couples uniting. According to the renowned Sanskritist Daniel H.H. Ingalls, the Malatimadhava is a work that combines love and horror with a felicity never again equaled in Sanskrit literature.

This movie has nine songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960). Lyrics for all the songs have been written by Pt. Narendra Sharma.

Music for this movie has been composed by Sudhir Phadke.

Lata Mangeshkar, Malti Pande, Sudhir Phadke have given their voices to the songs in this movie. Though singer’s name for three songs has not been identified and mentioned in the list of songs in HFGK.

However as per the footnote given at the end for this movie in HFGK it is mentioned that as told by Sudhir Phadke, the voice of Lalita Phadke also appears in one of the songs of this movie.

So far, four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog as per following details. (In order they were posted)

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Baandh preet phool dor Lata Mangeshkar 25.07.2011

04 Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhaaye re Malti Pande 15.09.2020

We can see from the above table that this movie made its debut on the blog on 25.07.2011 and the second song also followed within three days on 28.07.2011. However, the third song from this movie took another seven years and it was posted on 08.08.2018. The fourth song appeared after a gap of two years thereafter.

Today we are going to listen to the fifth song from this movie more than two years after the fourth song was posted on the blog.

Today’s song is a ‘sweet’ song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar with beautiful verses by Pt. Narendra Sharma.

Music is composed Sudhir Phadke.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Editor’s note:-This song is the 100th song by Pt Narendra Sharma in the blog as a lyricist.

Let us listen to this beautiful song …

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1973-7)
——————————————-——————————

Today’s song in this series is from the movie ‘Jeewan Sukh’.

I guess this was an obscure movie of its time and it must have been forgotten easily. I could not find any video of this movie on internet and I think that this also seems to be unavailable as of now on internet.

“Jeewan Sukh-1973” was directed by Debu Sen for ‘Suman Productions’.

It had Dheeraj, Monica (New discovery), Nargis Banu, Anand Chaini, Nazeer Hussain, Dhumal, Asit Sen, Darshan, Niliman Pal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Praveen Pal, Mushtaq, Shirli, Bihari, Jhumru, Prakash Thapa, Hardeep, Dhananjay, Sanjana, Jankidas and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.03.1973.

This movie has four songs written by three lyricists. Naqsh Lyallpuri had written two songs, and Janisar Akhtar and Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ had written one song each.

Music of this movie was composed by Sapan-Jagmohan.

Here is the list of songs in this movie :-

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Do nigaahen teri, do nigaahen meri Naqsh Lyallpuri Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar
02 Meri paayal kahin na kuchh kah de Naqsh Lyallpuri Asha Bhonsle
03 Hans le gaa le, jee le mere pyaare Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ Manna Dey
04 Ab kisliye uthhayen ehsaan zindagi ke Janisar Akhtar Naseem Banu

Today this movie ‘Jeewan Sukh-1973’ makes its debut on the blog with a song sung by Manna Dey.
Lyrics are are Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’, who, I guess, will also be making a debut on the blog as Lyrics writer.

Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

As mentioned above only audio of this song is available.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs and other information about this movie.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

Editor’s note:-This song is the 600th song of Manna Dey in the blog as a playback singer.

This is the 17300th post on this blog.

Blog Day :

5279 Post No. : 17300

What is going on today? I am sure this question is worrying the minds of quite a few if not many or all regulars of this blog. Atul ji seems to be in a big hurry today. Seven posts already since his first good morning call at 5 am. Aha, so getting to the century number it seems. Yeah, ok, that’s it, he wants to complete the century, and make the century post today. But why? What is the tearing need? Is there a birthday not known to anybody? Is it a special day for someone on the bandwagon or in the industry? The anniversary page has no listing for today. ये क्या हो रहा है? क्या चल रहा है?

So yes, a mystery has been created by today’s blog activism. Already 7 songs on the board, and of course, the century strike is still to come. Well, here now. 😀

Ok so let me reveal the story in the background. This mystery scramble started less than 24 hours ago. About 5 days back, Atul ji and I exchanged some messages and decided that this century milestone will be an Asha Bhosle special. Some very interesting numbers are co-inciding. So we agreed to search and locate some special and rare song for this event. It took me about day to zero in on the song. I told Atul ji about it, and he agreed. So we planned to make the century post with this song.

So far, we were not in a scramble. Taking it easy, one or two posts a day, maybe get to the century milestone by 5th Jan or so. That suddenly changed last evening. Around 6.40, I got a message from Atul ji. He asked me whether we can make the century post tomorrow, i.e. today, 31st December. And he also shared the reason. As soon as I heard that, I was excited too. We agreed for the scramble, and the scramble happened.

Okay, okay – sorry for the long prelude. I will explain. First, the Asha Bhosle angle. We are coinciding two century milestones for her with this post. I wonder if the regulars have noticed that we have not be posting any Asha Bhosle songs for the past few days. Well, the reason is that Asha ji is at 2999th song on this blog, before this one. So this becomes her 3000th song being showcased here.

Ah, but wait, there is more. Asha ji is also at 1499th solo song with us. So this is now her 1500th solo on the blog. That makes today’s post a dual century milestone for her.

Before her, the two stalwart singers who have crossed these milestones are of course Lata ji and Rafi Sb.  Lata ji is currently at 3829 songs overall, and 2479 solos. Rafi sb is at the second place with 3222 songs overall and 1511 solos.

Now coming to the date, and the reason for the scramble. This is a piece of co-incidental information that Atul ji dug out yesterday. Most likely he was looking at the ten year challenge data for the BTYC 2022 series. So all it takes to guess this angle is to look at the songs posted ten years ago on 31st December 1912. The last song of that day, the New Year’s Eve of 2012, was the 7300th song on the blog. And so now, I am sure the numbers will fall in place in the minds.

Exactly ten years ago, were exactly ten thousand songs before this post. Ten years – ten thousand songs, that is a very telling achievement. Just for comparison, let’s see what came before that. From 19th July, 2008 to 31st December 2012, it is a few days less than 4 and a half years. In that period, we clocked 7300 posts. OK, so the comparison is nowhere balanced. The first 4.5 years come at an average of 1622 songs per year. And the next ten years come at an average if 1000 songs per year. That is quite a difference, which portrays the drop in the pace of posting over the years.

But in my mind, there is another very crucial observation to be made. Just in the fact of sustenance. In the known world of online blogging and entertainment and music, our blog most likely stands out as being the most consistent, the most sustained and the most continuing presence online – among the blogs that are run and managed by an individual or a small group. Yes there are other blogs that continue to thrive and continue to be regular, but they are mostly with corporate or external support and sponsorship. I am sure we all are aware of many blogs related to Indian Cinema and Hindi film songs, that we have visited over the years, but then with time, majority of them have lost steam, or slowed down. There is definitely a fatigue factor associated with this activity too. Sustaining the effort to continue is a big factor. And then, to ensure this sustenance on a day to day basis – I am confident to claim that our blog is without a peer across the wide internet.

So that is the story behind the eight posts that have been pulled together at a scramble within less than 24 hours.

Another coincidence I would like to mention here. Asha ji also figures in the 7300th post ten years ago. The song in that post is “Mohabbat Ka Haath Jawaani Ka Palla” from the 1958 film ‘Howrah Bridge’. The song is a duet by Rafi Sb and Asha ji. As noted in that post, that was the 300th duet song of this pair. Before this we were not noting and announcing century milestones for duet songs. It started with the post 7300.

And so, Asha ji then a centurion, and today too, Asha ji is a centurion.

Coming to the song in this post today. When Atul ji had sent me a query about some very special song of Asha ji for this milestone post, my mind went to this song, and for some very good reasons.

The song itself is very obscure and a rare discovery. As are many of the creations of the music director Sajjad Husain. Yes, the music for today’s song is from the mind of this genius music director, who was not given his due by the industry. The reasons can be discussed and debated, but the quality and the composition of his music cannot be. Par excellence is what comes to mind when we talk of this maverick music director.

The film is ‘Mera Shikar’ from 1973. After his 1963 venture with ‘Rustom Sohrab’, he was lost in the mists of forgotten anonymity for all of ten years. Then we see his name in this obscure and less heard of film that comes in 1973. An then it also disappears without a splash. Other than the fact that it is recorded in the Censor Board registers, and on account of that, it also appears in the Geet Kosh, no one had heard of or mentioned this film for many decades. With the coming of the internet, as access to many obscure things became easier, the aficionados started searching for lost and obscure songs of lesser heard music directors and singers and lyricists.

The difficulty with this film is that a. no gramophone records at all were made and b. the film itself is not available.

The songs of this film were presumed lost for a long time. And then they were discovered. On a spool tape. So now at least the songs are available, albeit it has been a difficult and anonymous journey.

A total of three songs are listed and identified for this film. One of the songs, in the voice of Rafi Sb, is already showcased on our blog – “Teri Mehfil Mein Aaye Hain”. This song was posted more than eleven years ago on 17th June, 2011.  The other two songs have not become available online, although they have been with private collectors for some time now. I first got these songs from my dear friend Girdhari Lal ji of Jodhpur. Then later, these songs also came to me once again thru another dear friend, Zafar Shah of Delhi. When the discussion for this post started, and my mind came to this song, I checked with Zafar Bhai, and he indicated that this song is already uploaded by him on his YouTube channel about six months ago. And so we have this song now available, to be played today as the 3000th song and 1500th solo song of Asha ji.

A vintage Sajjad creation, this song has such an endearing and yet intriguing melody. The verse lines are short and Sajjad Sb has knitted them into his music very beautifully. When we agreed to do this song for this post, I have since then heard this song repeatedly tens of times. And I am not getting tired of listening to it again and again. The rhythm and the arrangements are simply enchanting.

And then of course, the rendition by Asha ji. All I can say is – just listen to the song. And I think you will be bowled over, as I am.

The lyricist – Shakeel Nomani (or Numani) is once again a lesser known personality in the film world. He was a writer and wrote in newspapers and magazines in Urdu, Hindi and English. His name appears as the songwriter in a few films in 1950s and 60s. He wrote all the songs for four films – ‘Panchaayat’ (1958), ‘State Express’ (1961), ‘Daku Maan Singh’ (1971) and ‘Mera Shikar’ (1973). In addition he has written songs in ones and twos for the following films – ‘Sair e Paristan’(1958), ‘Lady Robinhood’ (1959), ‘Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere’ (1960), ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960), ‘Flight To Assam’ (1961), ‘Reporter Raju’ (1962), and ‘Magic Carpet’ (1964). Besides writing songs, he has also appeared as an actor in about 20 films. Our blog carries 16 songs already of this lesser known writer.

Shifting gears again – it is the closing hours of the year 2022. Tomorrow will be a new day and the beginning of a New Year. For some time now, I have wondered occasionally, what does a New Year mean. As the day dawns and the sun rises, it will be a day no different than today, or any other day that we have lived through. And when we talk of New Year, there are so many occasions during the 12 months that New Year is celebrated by different societies, different groups of people on different dates. Any way, apologies, I will not continue with my tangential musings.

It is a block time of 12 months that get a new number tomorrow. Different thoughts and different people will associate different expectations and measures and resolutions and plans with this next block of 12 months. And so, wishing all good luck and happiness with all their expectations and plans in the coming year. Also wishing good health to everybody, and a contented peace of mind to go along with it.

Let’s bring on 2023.

Listen to the mesmerizing sounds of the mandolin play, as only one master of mandolin could play. That is Sajjad Husain. Listen to lilting rendition by Asha ji, as she tells about expectations and desires that rise in the mind when one is in love with another. . .

teri chaahat mein jeeyen
teri hasrat mein maren
hai ye armaan. . .

Listen to this wonderful creation – and wonder sometimes, why was this master musician always relegated to the sidelines.

Amen.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Bikhhre Moti-1971)
—————————————

Theme songs and or background songs is the common feature in Hindi films. I think it was more common especially in the Hindi movies from the seventies. Such songs also help to push the narrative of the story. They also help to show the growth and transformation of the characters through different phases of life in the movie.

I had always liked such songs very much as most of the time their lyrics are quite philosophical and motivational in general.

I am planning to present such songs yet to be presented here in the coming future. Today’s song is one such song from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Bikhre Moti’. I was under the impression that this movie has already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. May be I was confused with the other movies having ‘Moti’ in their titles.

“Bikhre Moti-1971” was directed by Chanakya for ‘Gita Shree Films’.

It was produced by Omee Arora.

It had Jeetendra, Babita, Sujit Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Tarun Bose, Asit Sen, Shabnam, Irshad Panjtan, Murad, Uma Dutt, C.S. Dubey, Chand, Yusuf, Prem, Roma, Baby Shobha, Baby Nasarat, Master Ratan, Master Manoj, with Helen and Kamini Kaushal.

Story of this movie was written by C. Kugunathan. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Vishwamitra Adil.
Editing of this film was done by Ramrao.

This movie had five songs in it (including today’s song which is played in parts in the movie).
Lyrics for all the songs of this movie were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music for this film was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the brief about this movie, which I have taken as it is from the movie link available on ‘YouTube’.

Sulochana (Kamini Kaushal) is a young mother who accepts forced widow-hood and has to leave her home with her two sons. She gets involved in an accident while saving the life of a millionaire’s only daughter Leela and ends up losing her two sons.
The millionaire, by his will, names Sulochana as the guardian of Leela before his death. Fate ordains her sons Anand (Jeetendra) and Gopi (Sujit Kumar) to grow up in totally different environments. Anand gets rescued by Inspector Ram Prakash (Nazir Hussain) and grows up to be a police officer while Gopi grows to be a notorious criminal.
Unaware of their relationship, Gopi and Anand become arch enemies, when they both fall in love with Leela (Babita). Gopi sets out to end Anand and takes the help of Jeevan (Tarun Bose) a murderer released from jail. (Unquote)
Jeevan is the person who is none other than the father of the two siblings Anand and Gopi?
So, what happens next? , That is something to watch in the movie.

The above brief will also give readers a background about the today’s ‘background’ 🙂 song.

The singing voice is of Mahendra Kapoor who has sung many such background songs and they suited him too.

Video of this song is not available. And the audio available does not have the third stanza of this song. Also the first three lines before the ‘mukhda’ of this song are not available on the audios that I have been able to come across so far.

If one carefully goes through the lyrics of these first three lines of the song and the lyrics of the third stanza of this song one can easily guess that what is ‘lost at the start of the movie’, ‘all comes back’ at the end of the movie.

Also, from the song it is clear that the ‘central character’ in this song is ‘Sulochana’ ‘the mother’ played by Kamini Kaushal.

(The first part of this song is played immediately at the beginning of the movie after the ‘production logo’ (at 00:51 to 03:48). The titles are rolled as the first stanza is played in the background and end with it there. This is when Sulochana is devastated as her husband deserts her with the two children.

The second time this song is played in the movie at 14:21 to 16:31 where the first stanza is played again and this time the second stanza is played in addition to the first one. This part happens when Sulochana has already been separated from her two sons and she is at the millionaire’s home and wants to leave them. However the daughter of the millionaire, the doctor and other members in that family requests her to help and take care of the little girl who by now thinks Sulochana as her mother.

The third stanza of this song is played at the ‘happy end (:) ) of this movie at 02:14:07 to 2:15:19 where the movie ends. The separated family finally gets united in the end of the movie and this third part of the song is played then.)

‘Bikhre Moti-1971’ has five songs in it as per list given below.

SNo. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Jalti rahe teri mamta ki jyoti Mahendra Kapoor Being presented today
02 Main bhi sochoon door khada ae kaun hai Asha Bhonsle
03 Ye jo ladki hai Mohd Rafi, Lata 03.09.2014
04 O zaraa dekh chalna haay haay haay Mohd Rafi
05 Ek nazar chaahoon main halki halki Asha Bhonsle

As we can see from the above table only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog so far.

Today’s song sung by Mahendra Kapoor is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

With this song, Mahendra Kapoor now has 400 songs in the blog as a playback singer.

Today 16th November 2022 is the one hundred and fifth birth anniversary of Chitragupt Shrivastava (born on 16.11.1917 and passed away on 14.01.1991). He is better known by his name Chitragupt.

Music director Chitragupt had a long journey in Hindi Film Music since 1946 to 1988 (as per information available). However some sources mentions ‘Chandaal-1998’ as his last film where he is credited with one song. This needs to be checked and authenticated. The titles of this movie don’t mention his name as a music director. (His sons Anand-Milind composed music for this movie.).

In his long career music director Chitragupt has composed many memorable and unforgettable songs and they will always be cherished by music lovers. His name will remain in the annals of Hindi Films Music. He was also the pioneer of the music for ‘Bhojpuri films’ ever since the first ‘Bhojpuri’ film was produced. He has composed timeless melodies in many ‘Bhojpuri’ films. He has collaborated with many mainstream singers from Hindi film music in Bhojpuri films too. And we already have some of these songs posted on the blog. Some of them, from the movies in the ‘eighties’ are yet to be presented on the blog. Today we pay our tributes to Chitragupt ji and remember this talented yet ‘underrated’ music director on this blog on his birth anniversary.

Today we are going to enjoy a song from a ‘Bhojpuri’ movie of ‘1986’.

In Hindi film music, music director Chitragupt has collaborated with singer Kishore Kumar and their collaboration have given us some very very special everlasting songs. Many of them are my favorites. I wish many more should have been there from this un-usual ‘combination’.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and this song will mark the 13th century of Kishore Kumar songs on the blog. We still have many Kishore Kumar songs to be covered on the blog. I hope we will be able to see all of them on the blog in our life-time.

Much has already been written about Kishore Kumar – the person and Kishore Kumar – the singer, so I am not going to repeat same here again. But, yes, I have something to write on my journey with Kishore Kumar songs at different stages of my life which I am leaving for another post which I would like to present later on the blog.

Similarly, I am not going into the many other details about Chitragupt ji here today in this article. His music has a ‘special place’ in my heart and I would certainly like to put my thoughts in an article here surely in the future.

So what special for today?

Today’s special is this composition by Chitragupt ji which all of us are going to enjoy. And we are going to enjoy the singing of none other than Kishore Kumar of this song.
(I am not aware if this is going to be the first Kishore Kumar song in Bhojpuri on the blog).
Today’s song is from the movie ‘Ganga Ke Teere Teere-1986’.

It was directed by Rajpati for ‘Shri Jagannath ji Pictures. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.04.1986.

“Ganga Ke Teere Teere” was produced by Hari Kishan Madhavdas Masand and Kishan Uttamchand Lalwani.

It had Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Madhu Malini, Ram Singh, Girja Mitra, Satyen Kappu and Bharat Kapoor.

They were supported by Yunus Parvez, Chand Usmani, Dulari, Shubha Khote, Vandana Shastri, Rajrani, Jai Pahalwan, Ratna, Master Mani, Mishra, Pande, Master Vinit Jha, and Shabana (Banarasi).

Dilip Sinha, Shekhar Purohit, T.P. Ojha, Brajesh Tiwari and Jayshree T made guest appearance in this movie.
Story of this movie was written by Rajpati. Editing of this movie was done by S.R. Sawant.

Rajpati also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

Music of this movie was composed by Chitragupt.

Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, and Udit Narayan had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is lip synced on screen by Ram Singh (I guess). Also seen in the picturisation of this song is Madhu Malini and many others.

This song is has a village set up where people seem to be gathered for some village fair (?).

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy this entertaining song …

With today’s song this movie ‘Ganga Ke Teere Teere-1986’ makes its debut on the blog .

Today’s song is from the film Ladai ke baad-1943.

This is a very misleading title for a film which was made during the peak period of Second World war. Reading this title, it is natural for anyone to feel that this was a film which was on the matters which will take place after the war is over, or it may be a depiction of the country and the social life going through changes after the war ended. But none of it ! It was simply all about a war (Ladai) between two neighbouring families, caused by the usual Ego clash – though there is a loving couple in both families, hoping to get married. And it was called a Comedy film.

The film was made by Navyug Chitrapat, Poona. There is a little history behind the launch of this film making company. Master Vinayak (father of actress Baby Nanda) had his own film company Hans Pictures, in partnership with half brother Baburao pendharkar and cameraman pandurang Naik. Their first film was Chhaya-36-aq bilingual in marathi and hindi. It was not only a hit film but also it won many awards. Next 2 films, Premveer-37 and Dhrmveer-37 were also successful. Then came the film Jwala-38, a bilingual. Unfortunately this film was a big flop and Vinayak suffered heavy loss. To make it up, he then made 2 more films-Bramhachari-38 and brandy ki botal-39. Although these were successful at the Box office, the loss was not compensated. Even the last attempt with marathi film Ardhangi-40 (Hindi-Ghar ki Rani-40) could not salvage the damage done by jwala and Hans Pictures was dissolved.

He then launched navyug Chitrapat, along with Acharya P.K.Atre as a partner. Navyug was the first film company to offer 100 rupees shares to the common public (Bombay Talkies had given its shares to its Directors initially). The first film made was in Marathi-Lapandav-40. Then came Amrit-41(in Hindi and marathi) and ‘Pahili Mangalagaur’-42 in marathi, wherein Lata Mangeshkar made her Debut. During the making of this film, Vinayak left navyug and started his own ” Prafull Pictures’. After the last film Ladai ke baad-1943, navyug Chitrapat also closed down.

Actually, if one goes through the early marathi Cinema production history, one would know that launching and closing film companies was quite frequent in the Marathi film industry. In the early era, films were made in Poona, Kolhapur and Bombay. Two major communities in Maharashtra, Gujarati and Marathi entered the cinema field. Gujaratis were businessmen and had the money power. They immediately became the owners of film companies, supplied finance and made profits. Marathi people had no money but they had a hard working nature, acting Talent, Music expertise and Technical knowledge. Thus the jobs were automatically divided. Whenever Marathi people owned or launched film companies, they lost the battle due to lack of business sense and clash of false egos among partners. In later years, however, this picture changed.

Film Ladai ke baad-43 was directed by R.S.Junnarkar. Raghunath Shankar junnarkar was born on 19-3-1911 in Bijapur. After matriculation, he joined the film industry as a technician,in 1931, in Zarina pictures. He moved to kohinoor film company and then to United Artistes. Later he joined Kohinoor Cinetone in the capacity of screenplay writer and editor in 1934. master Vinayak Called him to Hans pictures in 1936. He was diligent and hard working. He got his first chance as a director of film sangam (Hindi and Marathi)-1941. Before this, he had jointly directed the film Bahurani in 1940, with actor Mubarak.

For navyug pictures he directed Pahili mangalagaur, Tuzach (Hindi version Main tera hoon) and Pundalik all marathi films. After Vinayak left navyug he completed the film pahili mangalagaur. In this film, there was a kissing scene of Snehaprabha pradhan and Shahu Modak. Lata also debuted in this film with acting and singing for herself.

Junnarkar was excellent as a screenplay writer. he wrote for films Nigahe nafrat -35 (Debut of Shobhana Samarth), Chhaya-36, dharmaveer-37, jwala-38, Neera and nanda-1946(directed also). he also wrote lyrics for film Taqrar-1944, he edited films, premveer, Nigahe nafrat, dharmaveer, Birha ki raat and Baazuband. (Thanks to the book ‘ Marathi Cinema in retrospect’ by Sanjit Narvekar).

Coming back to film Ladai ke baad-43, the songs were written by Wali Saeb.He was the brother of lyricist Nazim Panipati. Wali Saheb was a person of one of a kind. He was an educated person fond of writing stories and songs, but he was also very orthodox in nature, So much so, that he had made it compulsory for his actress wife Mumtaz Shanti, to come for shootings in a Burkha, and was also a perfect Hypocrite who allowed her to act in films as a lover of the Hero ! He would put it in her contract that the hero would not touch her during the shoots. To ensure this, he used to be present personally in her every shoot. After the shooting, she was to put on her Burkha again and head straight home, without talking a word with anyone.

It seems her uncle Barkat Nizami ( husband of actress Geeta Nizami) had brought her in films and he used to take away 75% of her earnings ( 50% for himself and 25% for his son). However, after her marriage to Wali saheb, this had stopped.

His name was Wali Mohd Khan. He was born in Poona on 10-8- 1908. His family was from Punjab. He became a Compounder with a Doctor in Lahore till 1938. He used to write songs for the Recording companies, for a sum of Rs. 5 per song ! He entered film line as a story writer and Lyricist, with film,” Soni Kumharan ‘ produced by East India Film Company.His songs became popular and he started writing dialogues too.He wrote songs, stories and dialogues for 36 films in all, with 280 songs. He worked for Kamla Movietone, Pancholi studios,Talwar productions, Cine art production etc.He even sang one song in the film Udhar-1949.

After trying his hand at Direction in Venus pictures film ” Lady Doctor”-44, he went on to produce and direct film ” Dekhoji”-47, under his own banner, Punjab film corporation ltd. Bombay. He produced and directed 4 more films, Padmini-48, Heer Ranjha-48, Putli-50 and Zamane ki Hawa-52. In all these films, the Heroine was Mumtaz Shanti. He migrated to Pakistan, with his actress wife, in the mid 50s. ( Thanks to information from Film Directory-46, muVyz, HFGK and my notes.)

I am not giving the film story because it was given along with the film’s first song discussed here in 2016. The music was by Dada Chandekar. Shankar Vishnu aka Dada Chandekar was from Kolhapur. He was born on 19-3-1897. His father used to do Keertan in temples and also play Harmonium. Dada also became an expert in playing the harmonium. Due to poverty, Dada joined Kirloskar drama company and used to do female roles. One day, by chance when the regular Harmonium player was absent, Dada got the opportunity to play Harmonium in a drama, which was lauded by all.

Later he joined Deenanath Mangeshkar’s Balwant Natak company where he played Harmonium for 20 years. Now Dada wanted to join the film industry. He assisted Dhamman Khan in the film Kaliya Mardan made by Bhali Pendharkar. When Dhamman Khan was removed due to his irregularity, Dada was appointed MD for the same film. Thus started his career finally. In 1937, he joined Huns Pictures of Master Vinayak and gave background music for the film Jwala-1938. This prompted the film Brahmachari-1938 to be given to him. This film’s music became Hit and created records in Hindi and Marathi versions. He gave music to Huns and Navyug films.

His other films as a MD were Brandy ki Botal-39, Devta-39, Ghar ki Rani-40, Amrit-41, Sangam-41, Ladai ke baad-43, Lieutenant-44, Din Raat-45, Main Tera Hoon-47, Moti-47 and his last Hindi film Phool aur Kaante-48. Meanwhile he was doing Marathi films also. He gave music to 25 Marathi films till 1964. It was he, who gave the First ever opportunity to Lata Mangeshkar to sing in a film. The film was ” Pahili Mangalagaur”-1942. It was a duet with Snehprabha Pradhan.

Dada Chandekar gave music to many Marathi dramas and he also worked for All India Radio, Poona for a few years. Dada Chandekar, one of the early composers of Hindi and Marathi films, died on 27-1-1976 at Poona.

Today’s song is a duet sung by Snehprabha Pradhan and Govind Kuruvilkar.

Editor’s note. This is the 100th song of Wali sahab as a lyricist in the blog. He becomes 32nd lyricist and 94th artist overall to complete 100 songs in the blog.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Toofaan -1975#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the movie “Toofaan-1975”.

I have vague memories of watching this movie in my childhood. But I do not remember the movie, its songs, or its story. What I remember is the hero wearing a mask (Zorro type mask) and riding a horse, with a sword in his hand (?).

I had in one of my earlier post on the blog mentioned earlier that I get to watch the movies ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’, ‘Double Cross-1973’ and ‘Toofaan-1975’ on back to back days at small town ‘Malkapur’ in the ‘Vidarbha’ region of Maharashtra (somewhere around 1976-1977).

My parents were on tour to this place for their ‘Marathi play’ to be staged there. I must be around eight-nine years old then. I and my brothers get to watch these movies then. As I mentioned earlier, I carried the memories of one song (or rather their ‘mukhda’ only) each from ‘Do Khilaadi’ and ‘Double Cross’ and from this movie ‘Toofaan’ I remember the masked hero only and the name of the hero i.e. Vikram.

Today I present the first song from this movie ‘Toofaan-1975’ on the blog and this movie is making a debut on the blog today.

‘Toofaan-1975’ was directed by Kedar Kapoor for ‘Sargam Pictures (Pvt.) Ltd., Bombay’.

It had Vikram, Priyadarshini, Roopesh Kumar, Jagdeep, B.M. Vyas, Jeevan, Jayraj, Trilok Kapoor, Sajjan, Rajan Haksar, Abhijit Sen, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti Kumar, Shetty, V. Gopal, Shriram, Ramlal, Vijay Khanna, Urmila Bhatt, Praveen Pal, Meena T., Bahnumati, Sujata and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975.

‘Toofaan-1975’ has seven songs, all of them penned by Ravindra Jain.

Ravindra Jain also composed the music for this movie.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Toofaan toofaan hai mera naam Mohd Rafi
02 O barkha mujhe sach sach bataa Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
03 Pyaar kar, pyaar kar, dhaar kar, dhaar kar Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
04 Baj jaayega baaja baj jaayega Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05 Reshma mera naam hai, naachna mera kaam hai Asha Bhonsle
06 Chalo koi khel khelen ham Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
07 Sachche ka sachche ka bolbaala Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. It is an ‘introduction type’ song and its lyrics are very simple and straightforward. ( I listen to the other couple of songs from this movie and I find they also have very simple and straightforward lyrics 😊. Our readers will be able to listen to them on the blog as and when they are posted here).

On screen we see the ‘masked hero’ lip syncing this song ( because he doesn’t take out the ‘mask’ and so his face cannot be seen 😊, but he must be Vikram – the hero of this movie 😊 ).
We do not have any option to watch the song as it is because the hero is telling us in the song that ‘karoon main to apne hi jee ki, chaahe kuchh bhi ho anjaam’ 😊. We can see the hero travelling riding on a horse through different terrains and waiving people (villagers) and taking care of them and helping them.

( I guess this movie must have been inspired by the character of ‘Zorro’. We have one more movie like this 😊 )

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us listen to and enjoy today’s song sung by Rafi Saab. Lyrics are by Ravindra Jain, and he has also composed the music.

By listening to the today’s song we can also guess what the movie is all about …

With the today’s song ‘Toofaan-1975’ makes its debut on the blog and joins the ‘Toofaan’ (s 😊) of ‘1954’, ‘1969’, and ‘1989’ already available on the blog.

That is all for now 😊 let’s listen to the song now …

Editor’s note:-This song from “Toofaan”(1975) is Mohammad Rafi’s 3200th song in the blog and 1500th solo Mohammad Rafi song in the blog.
