Fabulous Foot Tappers – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“What a find. Such a rollicking song.”

This the comment by our own Ava Suri ji, that I find on the YouTube upload page of this song. Yes, ‘rollicking’ is just the right word to describe the tenor of this song. By the way, the YouTube channel on which this is posted is titled ‘The Edwina Channel’. And for those who are familiar, this channel is managed by Dan Thomas (aka Thomas Daniel). Dan has been actively collaborating with dear Greta Memsaab, for cleaning and sprucing up digital videos of old Hindi films, subtitling them and putting them up on the YT. Our dear Raja ji is also part of this effort.

The eighth edition of this series comes on after a long gap. The previous (7th) episode was posted on 5th April earlier this year (which itself was posted after a gap of almost one and a half years after the 6th one). The delay is all mine, and so is the loss. In the interim, at least two or three songs that I had short listed for this series, got posted otherwise. 😦 🙂 So anyway, the search is on for more Fabulous Foot Tappers from the 1950s and 60s.

The Rock n Roll genre of music took shape and evolved in the United States during late 1940s and early 1950s. The phrase “rocking and rolling” originally described the movements of a ship on the ocean. Later, this phrase was used to describe the spiritual fervor of church rituals, especially the Afro-American church denominations. The phrase also started to be used as a term for amorous tryst between lovers. 😉

Developing from a combination of gospel music, jazz music and the R&B (rhythm and blues) of the Afro-American people, this music very soon caught the fancy of the white teenager population in the growing urban centres in America. Moving on from the origins, where the primary musical instrument used to be a piano or a saxophone, in the early 1950s, the guitar took the centre stage, supported by the drums. And soon, as the electric guitar came along, it became by itself, or in combination with the normal guitar, the lead instrument for this music. As this music became popular across the race divide in the US, radio stations started to dedicatedly play this music, and started to refer to it as Rock n Roll.

Hindi films could not be far behind in adapting this music genre into the film songs. From the mid 1950s onwards, we see quite a number of music directors that took this genre and constructed many a wonderful pieces. Listening to them, there is an urge to tap your feet, or even get up and start dancing to these fabulous rocking sounds.

Today’s treat is a great sampling of this genre. Coming from the obscure film ‘Love And Murder’ (1966), this fast paced song is composed by OP Nayyar. Right from the word go, the drum beats take the centre stage, and in the accompanying visuals we see a group of young men and women dancing to the tune of this wonderful rock n roll song. The dancers are led by Edwina. The other young lady accompanying her in the lead movements is identified as Aruna, as per the YT post by Dan.

If this song had not been so positively rollicking, I would have been tempted to use it in the other series titled “Rare Performances – Things Unique and Unexpected”. We have a surprise – an actor who I see lip syncing a song on screen for the first time – Hiralal, the noted villain character from many a films of the Golden Era. He is accompanied very enthusiastically by Suresh. There is one more bearded young man who accompanies them in the lead singing; I request for help from other knowledgeable readers to identify this actor.

I have noted this as a “diversion” song. As the opening shot shows, this song is being performed during late evening time, on open street in front of a building that carries the sign board of a bank. As the song proceeds, we are treated to some shots which explain what is happening – the plan is to rob the bank. Some members of the gang are inside the bank and are attempting to blast open the vault with explosives. Another part of this gang is on the road outside the bank, with loud music, singing and fireworks, obviously to mask the explosive sounds of the misdeeds of the miscreants inside the bank.

The words of this song are penned by Shewan Rizvi. The music, the drum rhythms, the quick-burst paced singing and the energetic dance action on the street, all combine to make a wholly fabulous foot tapper. When I started exploring this film for songs, and came across this one, I am simply not able to resist listening to it every so often for the past few days. As Ava ji has said it, and I repeat – “Such a rollicking song”.

I suggest you put on your dancing shoes, before playing it. 😉

 

Song – Dekhne Waale Dekh Karishma Yaaron Ka (Love And Murder) (1966) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Shewan Rizvi, MD – OP Nayyar
Chorus
Rafi + Chorus

Lyrics

dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

dekh palat ke dhyaan kidhar hai
kisi ki topi kisi ke sar hai
haath safaai bada hunar hai
naam hamaara jaadugar hai
hosh udaa de badey badey hoshiyaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

chhuri bagal mein ram ka naara
galey lagaa ke phere aara
aankhen ho to dekh nazaara
raat mein suraj
din mein taara
kehl yahaan pe paise ki jhankaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

ajab hai naksha aaj shehar ka
kahin chataakha kahin pataakha
door kahin par hua dhamaaka
koi na samjha shukar khuda ka
shehar mien hoga shor ye kal akhbaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

देख पलट के ध्यान किधर है
किसी की टोपी किसी के सर है
हाथ सफाई बड़ा हुनर है
नाम हमारा जादूगर है
होश उड़ा दे बड़े बड़े होशियारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

छुरी बगल में राम का नारा
गले लगा के फेरें आरा
आँखें हों तो देख नज़ारा
रात में सूरज दिन में तारा
खेल यहाँ पे पैसे की झंकारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

अजब है नक्शा आज शहर का
कहीं चटाखा कहीं पटाखा
दूर कहीं पर हुआ धमाका
कोई ना समझा शुकर खुदा
शहर में होगा शोर ये कल अखबारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

We in this blog had two new resolutions and I had decided to stick to them as long as I can. One was to introduce a “new” movie daily and another was to to close the account of another movie by YIPPying it.

We are in may 2017, and both these resolutions have finally seen breaks. For instance, there was no YIPPEE song on 13 may 2017, a day that had only one post, a post that introduced a “new” song. The string on YIPPEE posts was in fact broken a few days earlier on 6 may itself when I posted a song that I thought was YIPPYing its movie but I was wrong. The “new” post string had got broken a while ago.

A few days back, Sudhir Jee was acting strange and was insisting on posting all the articles in the blog, including even my writeps, and in addition, he was asking me to go slow on my writeups. As a result, I found myself with so much time at my disposal that I finally managed to write a long article describing my meeting with Lucknow based regulars. I did not intend to send any song lyrics with the writeup, thinking that Sudhir Ji would take care of that too. But no, Sudhir ji wanted me to send a song link with the writeup as well.

Hullo atulites

As I said once before, November is the month of birthdays of some Miss Indias who went on to be actors in the Hindi film industry. We have had Juhi Chawla’s & Meenakshi Sheshadri’s birthdays already. The next to grow a year older is Zeenie baby as she used to be fondly addressed as for a short period of time.

Hullo to all of Atuldom

Today, 29th September happens to be the 84th birth anniversary of Mehmood Ali commonly known as Mehmood. In a career spanning four decades he acted in around 300 films. I am not sure how many songs in these 300 films where picturised on him and how many Mehmood songs our blog has! We don’t have a separate category of songs on Mehmood, like we have for Johnny Walker. The songs of these two actors were always very special. But I am sure there will be enough songs to take us through a life time if we stick to posting one song on his birth anniversary and one on the anniversary of his passing away. Of course there is nobody to stop us from breaking this rule and sneaking in a few extras, right?
[Editor Note: Request is noted for a category of Mehmood songs. 🙂 ]

On this blog, we have discussed often about the confusion in data and information related to films, songs and artists.  Across the various sites online, and even in print sources, there is so much misinformation floating around that it is really difficult to now have a trust on any one source.  The subject of this post is one such case in example.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

There is a film from 1969 – ‘Tumse Achhaa Kaun Hai”. This film has a classic song, Rafi Sb singing for Shammi Kapoor, that has not yet made it to this blog.  (Yes, I am surprised too 🙂 ).  The mukhdaa of the song is an animated yet a resigned expression of helplessness – so many ladies to be loved, whom should I love – “Kis Ko Pyaar Karoon, Kaise Pyaar Karoon”.  The situation is not too different, when I am trying to select a song for posting here.  Atul ji mentions a specific requirement, and as I sit down to choose a song according to that, I find myself in the same quandary – “Kis Ko Post Karoon, Kaise Post Karoon – Ye Bhi Hai, Wo Bhi Hai. . .”.
