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
lalalalla
lalalarlala

Blog Day :

This new year 2023 has seen lots and lots of debutant movies being introduced to the blog. as many as seven movies made their debuts in the blog in this new year. One of the movies had just one song in it. So its debut coincided with its getting YIPPEED as well. We did not have a “proper” YIPpying of the movie so far.

To make up for that, here is the first “proper” Yippying occasion in the blog in 2023. The movie getting YIPPEED is “Basant”(1960).

“Basant”(1960) was produced and directed by Bibhuti Mitra for Mitra Productions Bombay. The movie had Nutan, Shammi Kapoor, Minoo Mumtaz,Kammoo,Cuckoo(guest artiste), Murad, Vittaldas Panchotia, Jagadish Kamal, Gyani, Rajendar, V.Namade, Rawley, ShyamLal And Johnny Walker in it.

This movie was not an original movie. It drew heavily from earlier movies which in turn drew heavily from yet other movies. The movie was a mixture of “Safar”(1946) and “Shabnam”(1949), which were hit movies made by Bibhuti Mitra in the past taking inspiration from Hollywood movies “It happened one night”(1934) and “Love Affair”(1939), later remade as “An Affair to remember”(1957).

Great Memsaab, when she was actively reviewing Hindi movies, had posted a long and funny review of this movie.

An excerpt, which was earlier quoted while discussing this movie, is quoted here again:-

“Take the plot of It Happened One Night, sprinkle in some ingredients from An Affair To Remember, then stir in a third plot which is completely nuts, and voila! it’s Basant. Two of my favorite Hollywood films and some masala craziness for the price of one Hindi film! Sure, there are huge plot holes and it’s nonsensical at times, but what do I care—especially when the hero and heroine are my beloved Shammi Kapoor and beautiful Nutan. They are great together: his nonchalant silliness complements her feisty character perfectly.
Plus, there’s Pran! and lovely music from OP Nayyar.

Meenakshi Rai (Nutan) is the spoiled daughter of millionaire Rai Bahadur (Murad). We know that she’s a modern girl because she wears trousers and says “My foot!” a lot. She wants to marry Rajesh (Pran), a man of whom her father disapproves strongly.

Her father is escorting her to Calcutta by train to get her away from Rajesh, but she disembarks at another stop in the middle of the night as he is sleeping. Her bag is stolen on the platform by a scoundrel named Billoo (Johnny Walker) and she chases him to a nearby fairground, where she recovers her bag but discovers that her father already has the police after her.

To escape them, she takes to the stage and sings a lovely song (“Raaste Mein”) with a guy named Ashim (Shammi Kapoor). But when she returns to the train station to catch the Bombay train, it’s crawling with police and her father is there! So is Ashim, who has figured out who she is; he’s traveling to Bombay as well.

She decides to take the bus instead and sits next to Billoo—who steals all the money from her purse when she isn’t looking. For some reason never explained, Ashim is on the bus too, and sees a police roadblock ahead. He pushes Billoo aside and saves her from detection.

They enact a hilarious drama of a possessive husband and his shrewish wife, and the policeman flees to avoid getting involved. Shammi and Nutan are really fun to watch as he continues to needle her (and imitates her “My foot!” at every opportunity), and she gives it back to him as good as she gets.

To escape further notice, Meenakshi and Ashim take to the side roads. When Billoo the con man sees a poster with her photo and a Rs 50,000 reward, he starts trailing them. There is a lot of other comic side plot action with Johnny, but I won’t go into it here. He is pretty funny, though.

As Meenakshi and Ashim head towards Bombay by whatever transport they can find, they argue a lot but are getting acquainted too. She tells him that she is headstrong because her father has always been so controlling, and she is longing for a little freedom. They are so CUTE together.

Back in Bombay, Rai Bahadur just wants his daughter back, and is even willing to compromise with Rajesh.

But Ashim and Meenakshi are falling in love.

So true! When the two reach her home in Bombay, she confesses her feelings to Ashim. He tells her to meet him after one month apart, as a test to make sure their love is true. This seemed like a bad idea in An Affair To Remember, and it seems like a bad idea now, but she happily agrees.

Unfortunately, Rajesh is waiting in the wings, and he needs her money. On Meenakshi’s birthday—which Ashim attends in disguise—Rai Bahadur announces her engagement to Rajesh, as promised. Ashim is furious and confronts her, but she reassures him that she loves him. Rajesh overhears them, and sends his thugs to kill Ashim when he goes on a trip to deliver a valuable necklace in this place (our lunatic third plot development):

On the night when they are to meet, Meenakshi has a car accident and is paralyzed from her waist down. Rai Bahadur dies of a heart attack when he hears the news. When she recovers enough to leave the hospital in a wheelchair, Rajesh tells her that Ashim is dead too.

Poor Meenakshi is bereft. Is Ashim really dead? If not, where is he? Did he show up for their rendezvous and think her absence meant she had decided to marry Rajesh? Will she marry Rajesh? Will she ever walk again?

Oh, the drama! The tears! The beauty of Shammi! “

Reading the above, we can realise that “Chori Chori”(1956) and “Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin”(1991) also used the same story.

Despite borrowing heavily from all time hit movies, “Basant”(1960) failed at the box office.

We are discussing songs of “Basant”(1960) so let us now coonfine us to songs. The movie had as many as 14 songs ! In a movie running around three hours, one third of time must have been taken by the songs themselves !

One notices that Asha Bhonsle’s voice figures in all 14 songs. It is easily a record for a singer to lend his/her voice in each and every song of a movie where the song count is so high.

The movie had as many as 10 Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets. Easily a record in a movie for a duet singing pair. In addition, they figured in another song, that also had the voice of S D Batish.

O P Nayyar, the music director, clearly belived in one size fits all policy. All male actors lip synced in Rafi’s voice. All female actors lip synced in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. It the process, Asha Bhonsle lent her voice to Nutan, Kammo and Minu Mumtaz in different songs ! Video of four songs are not available, so who knows, she may have lent her voice to some more female actors in the movie. If all videos were available, then I would not be surprised to find that Johny Walker and Kammo had more songs picturised on them in the movie than Shammi Kapoor and Nutan !

As discussed above, the movie had 14 songs in it. 13 songs have already been covered.
Here is the list of the 13 songs that have been covered in the blog so far:-

17311 Idhar main khoobsoorat hoon (Basant) 5 January 2023 Asha Bhonsle, Rafi Video not available

We can see that this movie had a very long and eventful stay in the blog. The songs of this movie have been discussed not only by me, but also by Sudhir Jee, Arunkumar Deshmukh jee and nahm jee. We have discussed quite a few topics, while covering these songs, including introduction to some of our regulars.

Finally the movie gets YIPPEED in the blog with its 14th and final song. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. It is picturised on Minu Mumtaz and others.

Qamar Jalalabadi, whose remembrance day falls today, is the lyricist of the song. So this song serves as a tribute to him.

O P Nayyar is the music director of course.

Most of our posts these days appear in the early morning. But this song is about “Raat chaandni”, so postig it in the morning would have appeared inappropriate. so I am posting this song, when it is night. It is not quite “chaandni raat”(full moon night), that day was three days ago on 6 january 2023), but the moon is still full enough to be able to shed its chaandni tonight. So the setting for the song is appropriate enough.

So here is this 14th and final song from “Basant”(1960). Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the songs of “Basant”(1960) get covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

“Sohni Mahiwal” (1984) was a Indo-Russian historical romance drama film based on the story of ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ – one of the four popular tragic love stories of Punjab & Sindh region; the other three being Sassi Punnun, Mirza Sahiban, & Heer Ranjha; I am sure there may be more such stories in folklore.
“Sohni Mahiwal” has been made by the Hindi film industry a few times- songs from the 1946 and 1958 versions are there on the blog. I have read somewhere that in 1977 BR Films had announced a Punjabi version too with Rajesh Khanna and Neetu Singh in the lead, it never reached completion.

The 1984 version was produced by F.C. Mehra and directed by Umesh Mehra & Latif Faiziyev. This was the second collaboration of the Mehras with the Russians after “Alibaba aur 40 Chor” (1980). At the insistence of the Russians a special role was created for Zeenat Aman- they had liked her in ‘Alibaba aur 40 Chor’. This was one of Anu Malik’s (the music director for this film) earliest major film.
Sunny Deol and Poonam Dhillon played the star-crossed lovers- this was Sunny Deol’s second film, he was shooting for this when ‘Betaab’ released. Pran, Tanuja, Gulshan Grover, Rakesh Bedi, alongwith a few Russian actors formed the rest of the cast. Shammi Kapoor (a friend of F.C. Mehra) had a tiny guest role and Zeenat Aman was in a supporting role of Zarina the Bandit.

“Hare Rama Hare Krishna” released in January of 1971 i.e. 51 years ago. Pre-production and related activities may have started atleast a year or two earlier i.e. sometime in 1969 or 1970- 52/53 years back. That means our today’s birthday girl has been around in the industry for close to 53 years- unbelievable. Prior to that she was a model who went on to participate in the Femina Miss India contest and on winning there represented India at the Miss Asia- Pacific beauty pageant and winning that title too.

‘Zeenat Aman’ a name that is associated with roles that were different from what the heroines of that era played. It is not as if she didn’t play roles of Saree-clad ladies but most of them were not the wimpy-weepy types. She was most sought after for roles of ladies who were more modern in their looks and thinking. She was a trend setter who didn’t shy away from flaunting her well looked after appearance.
Today when she is turning an year older we shall see her in this dance number from “Sohni Mahiwal” singing an Anand Bakshi written song which was play-backed by Asha Bhonsle. This dance is to help Mahiwal reach the marriage venue of Sohni’s wedding and help the lovers unite. That is Zarina the bandit has a heart of gold.

Wishing Zeenie Baby (as she used to be called fondly) all health and cheer.

The recent months have been very different for me as I was going through many things including many thoughts going through my mind. (I will be trying to put them in my write-ups and present them in future on the blog.).

There was a busy work schedule at work whole of July-August as we shifted the whole warehouse from one place to another (around 10 kms from original location). Thereafter it was getting settled at new location and matching the speed with the requirements of Production in the factory. Add to this the daily travel to reach the workplace and coming back to home. I was not getting into the right mood of writing.

And that is the reason I was less active on the blog. But I was never away from listening music and even watching movies in theaters. I had always loved watching movies in theaters and it gives me immense pleasure. So far in the recent one month I have watched four movies in the theaters. I enjoyed all of them.
On the other hand I was getting my daily dose of listening radio especially Vividh Bharati on FM every morning and evening on my way to office and back.

There have been many songs which I get to listen on radio for the first time and in many cases I always wish that I would present them on the blog. But as the days passed I tend to forget the songs listened. The program in the evening, which I listened to most, plays non-stop Hindi song and doesn’t mention the movie-name the songs are from. So over the period, it slips and after few months I get reminded of such songs again or even the songs get played on after a long gap in the same program.

Today’s song is one such song which I had first listened almost more than one and half-year back. I had then thought to present this on the blog. Because this song is a very nice song or rather a gem of a song but not much heard, may be because it is not from the golden period of Hindi songs.

This song is from the film ‘Maashuka’ (1987).

‘Maashuka’ was directed by Arati Bhattacharya for Harshavardhan Films.

She had also written the story of this movie. (Aarti Bhattacharya was a Bengali actress who also worked in Bhojpuri and Hindi movies as actress, script writer and director. From the information given on her wiki page I guess that the actor in his movie Kunaal is the same person whom she married, and who also was an Bhojpuri actor. There is information available on Aarti Bhattacharya on internet which needs to be compiled in detail for presentation).

The film was produced by Rajiv Ranjan Singh. It had Kunaal, Moonmoon Sen, Arun Govil, and Zarina Wahab, with Shoma Anand. Sachin had a friendly appearance in this movie and then there was Amjad Khan above all of them. Paintal, Murli, Asha Sharma, Master Ravi, Bhagwan Sinha, Shivraj, Mukesh Kumar, Anwar, Fanu, Dharm Raj, Maharana, Ratan, Birender, Sushil Yadav, Master Akash, Gupta, Harisharan, S. Madan, Prabha Mishra and others. Pradeep Kumar also had a special appearance in this movie.

Dulal Dey was the screenplay writer and associate director of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Nawab Arzoo.
Editing of this film was done by Bibhuti Bhushan. S Tewari and RK Aroon had written the lyrics of the songs in this movie. Asha Bhonsle, Suresh Wadkar, Shabbir Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, Manhar, Ratna Aroon, Subhash and Kunal have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by RK Aroon. This name is new for me and I am not aware much about this music director. Also there is very less information available about him.

This movie had total six songs. Today we listen to a song from this movie which is sung by Shabbir Kumar and penned by Shardanand Tewary.

I think both the lyricist and the music director will make their debut on the blog with the debut of this movie on the blog today.

Incidentally, when I remembered this song on 26th October and checked for biographical details of Shabbir Kumar it was his sixty-ninth birthday on that day. He was born on 26th October 1954.

We belatedly wish Shabbir Kumar a very happy birthday on the blog.

Shabbir Kumar has sung many songs in the eighties and nineties and I too like many of his songs which I would like to present here in follow-up posts.

For today, let us enjoy this wonderful song …

On screen, it is actor Kunaal lip-syncing the song and also seen in the picturisation of this song are Moonmoon Sen and Arun Govil.

आज कैसा ये सूरज चमका रे
जो चंदा मेरा मुरझा रहा
आज कैसा ये सूरज चमका रे

फैली हुई है बाहर तो चाँदनी
मन में अंधेरा छा रहा
चंदा मेरा मुरझा रहा
आज कैसा ये सूरज चमका रे

आती ना बैरन मुझको ये निंदिया
काँपे क्यों मेरे सुहाग की बिंदिया
पी से वियोग कहीं हो ना जाये
मेरे पी से वियोग कहीं हो ना जाये
गीत पापी पपीहा जो गा रहा
चंदा मेरा मुरझा रहा
आज कैसा ये सूरज चमका रे
जो चंदा मेरा मुरझा रहा

चंदा के मुखड़े को बादल ने घेरा
हाँ आ आ
चंदा के मुखड़े को बादल ने घेरा
क्या जाने कल कैसा होगा सवेरा
पूनम अमावस ना बन जाये रे
मेरी पूनम अमावस ना बन जाये रे
रंग कैसा गगन दिखला रहा

Today’s song is from the film Mulaqat-1947.

The film was made by Taj mahal pictures.It’s all 11 songs were written by Munshi Dil Lucknowi and the film was directed by the Lyricist himself. Actually, ” Munshi ” means a Clerk, a writer, a literary assistant or a Language Teacher. How this Munshi directed the movie is a wonder. But then in the Hindi film industry, you find many such odd, unimaginable things. This was not his first directorial venture. He had already tried his hand at film-“Abla ki Shakti’-1940 and after this film, he again directed a film “Do Bhai”-1954. As a Lyricst, he write 126 songs in 16 film which included films like Iqrar-42,Naqgad narayan-43 ( a remake of Marathi film ” पैसा बोलतो आहे”), Sohni Mahiwal-46 and Laila-54. After this he migrated to Pakistan.

In Hindi, films are repeated in different ways like….

1. Same Titles – Commonest type, but not necessary that the film content will be the same. Hundreds of titles are repeated from Twice to more than 5 times. The maximum repetitions’ honour goes to the title ” INSAF “. Films with this title were made as many as 7 times. Funnily, there was at least one “Insaf” movie in each decade for 70 continuous
years ! They were made in 1937, 1946,1956, 1966,1973, 1987 and 1997. What Luck !

2. Same story – Different Titles…like Actor, Damaad and Albela – all made in 1951. Aurat teri yehi kahani-1954 and Aurat Teri kahani-1988. Many others.

3.Remakes….a) Hindi to Hindi – Aurat and Mother India, Abodh and Uphaar, Panghat-Chitchor and Main Prem ki diwani hoon, Hamare Tumhare and Khatta Meetha, Mala and Amar, Grihasthi and Ghar Basake dekho, Malkin and Biradari etc.

b) Other languages to Hindi like Marathi, Bangla, Tamil, Telugu etc. Chandralekha, Bahar, Ladki, Many films from New Theatres, Calcutta.

c) Dubbed films like Jaisimha to Jaisingh. Many films fall in this category nowadays, especially from the south.

There are many such remakes and the lists would be too long. This only proves that a popular theme/story is worth remaking a film. Why does this happen? Are there a shortage of stories ?
In 2004, a book called “Why we tell stories’, written by Christopher Booker was published. It is a book having more than 700 pages-728 pages to be exact. The book says “There are only 7 (Seven) basic plots in the whole world. They are recycled again and again in Novels, movies, Plays and Operas. These are
1.Overcoming the Monster
2.Rags to riches
3.The quest
4.Voyage and return
5.Rebirth or identical persons.
6.Comedy and
7.Tragedy .

After this book was published, there was chaos and criticism started. ‘New York Times’ also jumped in. The author coolly replied to all points and stuck to his statements. If we look at Hindi films, I personally feel that what the author has said is true in our case. Only thing is that our film stories are always a clever mixture of all or some of the above themes.

Today’s movie Mulaqat-47 was also a repeat title film. Films on this title were made in 1947, 1993 and 2002. This was a film with Muslim social background. The cast of the film was Naseem Banu, Prem Adib, Rama Shukla, Mumtaz Ali, Majid, Najma, Shah Nawaz and many others. The story of the film was –

Nasir (Prem Adib) is a school teacher. He and Saeeda fall in love and think of getting married. Saeeda loses her father and orphan Saeeda has to live with her Uncle and Aunt, who ill-treat her. fed up os this treatment she wants to commit suicide under a train, but is saved by a passing by Nawab Saheb (Shah Nawaz). He takes her home and decides to keep her there with them. He has a daughter who is Nasir’s student. Through her, the lovers come together again and decide to get married soon.
Meanwhile Mukarram (Rama Shukla), the vagabond son of the Nawab returns home. promising to mend his ways, he stays there. Now he too wants to marry Saeeda. The Nawab asks her. Under the burden of his help, she can not say ‘No’. The marriage is fixed.
Just one day prior to marriage, the town Police come and arrest Mukarram for a murder, which he had committed and take him away. The nawab is heartbroken. His daughter tells him about Nasi and Saeeda’s love affair. Nawab immediately calls Nasir and arranges his marriage with Saeeda. The End.

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 the 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.

There are two small actors. Here is some information about them, since they migrated to Pakistan after this film.

Majid’s name was Abdul Majid Syed. He was born at Farrukhabad in U.P. in 1915. His father was an Overseer. After matric in 1929, he started his business of Leather in Akola, Maharashtra. in 1935, actor, director and producer Nazeer of Hind pictures, introduced him to S.K.Daryani and he got a small role in Sher ka Panja-36 and Sangdil samaj-36. However, from film Bulldog-37, he got side roles and lead roles in films like Gentleman daku-37, insaaf-37, Rajkumari-38, Masterman-38, Zamana-38, Mud-40, Saubhagya-40, Swami-41, Swaminath-42, he also acted in more films like Najma-43, Babar-44 and Zeenat-45.

In all he did over 100 films till 1947. After Partition, he migrated to Pakistan with Nazeer and Swarnalata. In Pakistan he did just 7 films. He died on 24-9-1959.

Najma was born at Lahore on 1-12-1928. Her father was a businessman. Her real name was Naseem. Since there was already one famous actress Naseem, she changed her name. She first worked in ‘Kunwaara baap’ (1942) and ‘Uljhan’ (1942) Then came ‘Nai Zindagi’ (1943), ‘Dr Kumar’ (1944), ‘Piya Milan’ (1945)’ ‘Naseeb’ (1945) and Mulaqat-1947. Then she got married, left films and migrated to Pakistan.

Today’s song is a duet by Arunkumar Mukherjee and Binapani Mukherjee. The music was by Khemchand Prakash. Enjoy….

Today’s song is a Non Film Song (NFS) – for a change ! It is sung by Pankaj Mallick. Lyricist is Fayyaz Hashmi and the song is set to music by Pankaj Mallick himself. It must be a song originally recorded before the Partition, because the Lyricist migrated to Pakistan after that in 1947.

Music in India can be divided into 2 groups.
1) Film Songs and 2) Non Film Songs.

Non Film Songs (NFS) as an all inclusive term and it includes all songs other than film songs – Bhajans, Naats, Geets, Qawalis, Gazals,classical songs and anything and everything that is not a film song. It may include the various folk songs, traditional songs sung in all parts of India on various occasions like Bhai Dooj, Rakhi, Holi, Sankranti, Bidai, Farmers’ songs during harvesting, even songs composed by Saints and songs sung by housewives while operating Home Chakkies, Naag Panchami songs etc.etc.

Music has been an inseparable part of Man’s life in the World. In India music is used whenever things needed to be remembered. I remember, in the 40’s and the 50’s, in our school days, the teachers used to insist on singing Poems from the books, in tune, so that we remembered them. Even the mathematical Tables and Pahades were recited collectively in tune,in classes and we never forgot them. That is why old people, even today, remember the tables of 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1 1/2, 1 1/4, 1 3/4, 2 1/2, 3 1/2 etc. etc. For the new generations it is unbelievable because now calculators do all this without investing personal efforts. Great advantages and disadvantages too ! Simple calculations can not be done without calculators these days. Anyway, that is besides this topic.

Great singers and classical experts always had the Royal Patronage and for common people the traditional music and folk songs were there. After the advent of Radio in Bombay (23-7-1927) and Calcutta (26-8-1927), music came to the commoners. But even on Radio, for a long time, only classical music was aired on Bombay Station. However Calcutta station aired songs other than classical because they had plenty of songs which were sung during the Puja season. The origin of NFS was from the East. I used to always wonder as to why NFS singers were mainly from Bengal-Pankaj Mallick, Saigal, Jagmohan, Hemant Kumar, Juthika Roy, Kamla Jharia and even Talat Mehmood sang his NFS from Calcutta.

Famous singer of NFS, Jagmohan Sursagar has written in his Autobiography in 1985, about the Birth of NFS thus- ” In the initial stages Kamal Dasgupta was influenced by Rabindranath Tagore. Tagore’s songs and compositions(Rabindra sangeet) were extremely popular, but were limited to Bangla people only. Ghazal, qawwali, Dadra, Naat, Thumri, Hori, Kajari etc. used to come to market but had a very limited listenership. These never reached the top.

” The fusion of Gazal, Dadra and Qawali with Bangla Geet style gave birth to Hindi Non Film Songs or geets. As such Geet had a known and accepted place in Literature, but not in Music. To establish this new Genre, Kamal babu used lyrics by Pt. Madhur, Pt. Anjum and Faiyaz Hashmi, got them sung by Jagmohan, Hemant, Talat, Juthika etc. Their records were inscribed with ‘ Hindi Geet (Hindustani Song) ‘. What thus started as NFS Geet from 1936 continued up to next 20 years non stop. “

However, in the course of time, almost all Hindi Playback singers like Lata, Asha, Geeta, Shamshad, Talat, Mukesh, Rafi, Nurjahan, Amirbai, Zohrabai etc. sang NFS. Some of their NFS became very popular too. The NFS started to be discussed on this Blog somewhere from late 2011. I remember AK ji and myself were the major vocal supporters of NFS on this Blog. Today there are 245 NFS, sung by various singers on our Blog. There are 75 singers of NFS. Some rare songs by Abhram Bhagat, Ashraf Khan, Master Vasant, Tamancha Jaan, Indurani etc. are also there. I think on the Internet, ours must be the only Blog providing such a feast of popular NFS-so many at ONE place. Thanks ATUL ji.

The contribution of singers, Lyricists and composers from Bengal to the emergence, sustainance, prosperity and decline is notable. Kamal Dasgupta and Fayyaz Hashmi played a pivotal role in the flourishing of NFS in India and were the earliest promoters of NFS. let us know more about Fayyaz Hashmi….

Fayyaz was born on 18-6- 1920 at Calcutta. His father, Syed Muhammad Hussain Hashmi Dilgeer was a very famous poet and writer of stage drama. He was director at the top class theater of that time named “ MADAN THEATER LTD.” He knew 8 languages.

Senior lyricist, Faiyyaz Hashmi, passed away in Karachi on Nov 29 th 2011. He shot to fame after penning lyrics for such non-film songs as ;Ye Raatein Ye Mausam; (Pankaj Mullick), ;Tasveer Teri Dil Mera; (Talat Mehmood), ;Dil Ko Hai Tum Se Pyar Kyun; (Jagmohan), ;Bhala Tha Kitna Apna Bachpan; (Hemant Kumar), and so many more rendered by the likes of Juthika Roy and Feroza Begum.

Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi is a legendary song and dialogue writer and above all a true loving person. He is by himself an institution and a common asset of the Indo-Pakistan film-world. His admirers as ever are not confined in national frontiers. Those fond of Hindi / Urdu songs anywhere in the world have affection for him. The emergence of this bright star was evidenced much before independence of India, when Fayyaz Hashmi, still a teenager wrote the most famous song “Tasveer Teri Dil Mera Behla Na Sakhe Gi”. It was recorded in the voice of Talat Mehmood and music was composed by Kamal Das Gupta. This song brought “Talat” to limelight. Music for most of the Fayyaz Hashmi’s songs recorded at Calcutta was composed by Kamal Das Gupta.

The dynamic achievements of young Fayyaz Hashmi and his clarity of expression by using simple words were greatly appreciated by Qazi Nazrul Islam -“Tum mann main doob kar mann ka bhed nikaltey ho. Aasan shubdoon mein mushkil baat kehna buhut mushkil hay”. His unique combination of Urdu, Hindi and Sanskrit words to produce a harmonious song thus became a guideline for the future poets of geets. The transformation of some traditional Bangla songs was also facilitated. He has also written songs in Brij Bhasa and Purbi. His pre-independence songs total to about 1000.

Fayyaz Hashmi wrote his first verse “Chaman main Ghuncha-o-gul ka tabassum dekhne walo – Kabhi tum ne haseen kalyoon ka murjhana bhi dekha hai” when he was in 7th class. As a student of 9th class, he was participating in regular “mushairas”. He got an assignment in the British owned Gramophone Company at DumDum (now called Jessore Road, Kolkotta) India. He served there during 1943 to 1948 period. At that time the average monthly production of record was only 16. Once all the records (16) issued in a month were written by Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi- a record by itself. Some of the evergreen hit songs of Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi are quoted here:

1- Honton se gulfishan hain who – Aankhoon se ashkbar hum Talat Mahmood
2- Do Kafir Aankhoon ne mara Talat Mahmood
3- Dil ko hai tum se pyar kyoon Jag Mohan
4- Aaj use phir dekha hai Jag Mohan
5- Bhala tha kitna apna bachpan Hemant Kumar
6- Yeh Raaten yeh mausam yeh hansa hansana Pankhaj Mallick
(Also re-sung by Lata Mangeshkar as a tribute to the legendary Pankhaj Mallick)
7- Tasveer teri dil mera behla na sake gi Talat Mehmood
8- Ab yad hamein kyoon aati ho Hemant Kumar
9- Kitna dukh bhulaya tum ne Hemant Kumar
10-Maloom hay mujhko – ban Jao gi tum ek din taqdeer hamari Jag Mohan.

While in India, he wrote 48 songs in 9 Hindi films, namely-Subah Shyam-44, Meghdoot-45, Zameen Aasmaan-46, Pehchan-46, Krishna Leela-46, Arabian Nights-46, Giribala-47, Faisla-47 and Iran ki ek raat-49

He chose to migrate to Pakistan after the Partition.
In 1948, he was posted as recording Manager at Dhaka Center of the Gramophone Company and thereafter in 1951 at Lahore. He promoted many talents like Farida Khanum, Saeen Marna, Saeen Akhtar and Saeen Budha. He diverted towards the writing of film songs in 1956. “Kunwari Bewa” was the first film in Pakistan with his songs. He wrote more than 2000 songs for films and Gramophone Recording Company. He had also written stories, dialogues and scripts of many hit films like AULAD, ZAMAN KIYA KAHE GA, NEHLEY PE DEHLA, INTEKHAB, PEHCHAN, KHUDA AUR MUHABBAT, GHAREEBON KA BADSHAH etc. including “ HUM AIK HAIN” which was also directed by him. It was the first Pakistani film with 5 songs filmed in colour and as such a record in Pakistan film industry.

Every film, songs of which were written by Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi became super hit like SAHELI, AULAD, ASHIANA, SUHAGAN, HONAHAR, PEGHAM, SARTAJ, SHAREEK-E-HAYAT, EID MUBARAK, SHABNAM, LOVE IN JUNGLE, TOBA, SAWAL, LAKHOON MAIN AIK, DEWAR BHABI etc.

He received Graduate Award 3 times and also Nigar award for the best song in 1978 on “Chalo Achha Hua Tum Bhool Gaye” film “Lakhoon Main Aik”. He received International award in 1986 and another Nigar award in 1988 for the best dialogue of film “ Ghareebon Ka Badshah”. In addition to these he recounts about 11 Silver Jubilee Awards and 17 Golden Jubilee**. “Deewane Tere Pyar ke” is the latest film all songs of which have been written Fayyaz Hashmi.

The first compilation of his poetry was published as “ RAG RANG” in 1944 in India. His poems were published in various journals and magazines like Adbi Duniya, Adbe Lateef, Alamgeer, Beesveen Sadi, Shama (Delhi), Chitrali (Dhaka), Nigar (Karachi), Amar Jadeed and Amrit Bazar Patrika (Calcutta, India). He wrote many Naats and Qawwalis. He also wrote many National songs like (Ae Quiad-e-Azam tera ehsan hai ehsan” & “ Suraj Kare Salam – Chanda kare Salam”.

On the publication of his mystic verses, Mr. Raees Amrohi commented that “History of Sufi poets is indicative of a glorious future for them and Mr. Fayyaz.

Today’s NFS is composed and sung by Pankaj Mallick. According to a commenter on you tube, Pankaj Mallick has used the orchestra of Fransisco Casanovas in this song. You can hear many western instruments playing in the background. Similarly, Jagmohan Sursagar had also composed one song ” Kya maze ki baat hai” in his only Hindi films as a composer in 1955, wherein he used Waltz music.

Lyrics

Jab chaand mera nikla
??
Jab chaand mera nikla
us raat ki
us raat ke ?? chup thhe
?? bhi sharmaaye
chhaayin thhin ?? ghataayen
Jab chaand mera nikla

un aankhon se kehte thhe
un aankhon se kehte thhe
aankhen meri khushi mein
amar ujaala ho
do din ki zindagi mein
phir kyon na tumhen paa ke
hum bhaag pe itraayen
chaayin ?? ghataayen
Jab chaand mera nikla

aakaash pe jab chhaaye
ghanghor diyaare(??) se
tab man ke gagan mein mere
chhitke huye taare thhey

jaadoo sa mujhpe kiya thha
jaado bhari hawa ne
gham mera mita gaye thhey
un honthhon ke paimaane
ab tak hai wo ?? baaten
hum hosh mein kya aayen
chaayin ?? ghataayen
Jab chaand mera nikla aa aa aa
chaayin ?? ghataayen

This article is the 16900th post in the blog on its 5000th day.

Blog Day :

5000 Post No. : 16900

Today (27 March 2022) is one of those days that arrives regularly in the blog. It is the century post day. Moreover, it is an even more special day for the blog. Today is the 5000th day of the blog !

The fact that today is the 5000th day of the blog was known for quite some time. The idea that this day should coincide with the century post germinated a few days ago, even though it meant that we needed to go at a slower rate than even the already slow rate for the blog.

Sudhir Jee, who floated this idea was under the impression till the last moment that today we were on to 17000th post. It was only at the last moment that he realised that we were onto just the 16900th post. 🙂

Sudhir Jee had identified a special post for the occasion of 17000th post and so that song had to be held back.

We did not have any backup song for the occasion.

Most of our century posts get posted on week days when the blog gets more visits. Today is perhaps the first time in many years when the century post was getting covered on a Sunday. The previous such occasion that I can think of was 20 July 2014, which was a Sunday too and that was the day when the 10000th post was covered on the blog. That day which saw 8 articles being posted was a memorable day for the blog, as the regulars of the blog remember even to this day.

Today is Sunday. A few years ago, I had discovered a rare and remarkable old song of 1940s that celebrated Sunday. I vaguely remembered that I had noted it down and I had even downloaded that song. That song would have been a perfect century song for today. But I could not locate that song, despite searching hard in my portable hard disks and elsewhere. It could well have been hiding in some laptop that I am no longer using.

I informed Sudhir Jee about this song and he too searched for it. But that song could not be located.

During my searches, I came across some other rare songs and I considered using one of them, in case our “Sunday” song could not be located. So here is that song.

This song, quite an interesting and rare song, is from ‘Phulwaari’ (1946).

‘Phulwaari’ (1946) was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi. The movie had Motilal, Khursheed, Madhubala, Ramayan Tiwari etc in it. This obscure movie had 9 obscure songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

This song, third from the movie and 16900th song in the blog is a children’s song. It is sung by Baby Anu and chorus. Pt Indra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

The song is a take on Chanda Mama from her point of view. It is quite a fun song, quite an interesting song indeed. The song , like its movie ended up becoming obscure.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

I have no idea who this singer Baby Anu was. She may have been a small child while recording this song, but today she would be in her 70s. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on her. She makes her debut as a playback singer in the blog.

16900 songs on the 5000th day for the blog ! It has been quite a marathon run for this musical blog where songs have been covered at a rate of 3.4 songs everyday. These figures demonstrate the fact that if one can be consistent and disciplined that it is possible to achieve such high figures, even if our daily rate of posts may be seemingly low.

The blog now has 16900 songs from nearly 4600 movies, and around 1300 of these movies have already been Yippeee’d. These figures may not appear too daunting to the uninitiated, but these figures are big figures. We realize their size only when we try to list them or try to go through the list, or try to take a print out.

The next century mark is the big mark of 17000th song. Who thought, 14 years ago during 2008, that this blog would still be around in 2022 and people here would talk of 17000 songs in it. We are here and that target is just 100 songs away from us.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. And as always, let us hope that this musical bandwagon keeps rolling on and on and we keep discovering many musical gems in our journey.
