Like how Indians achieved freedom on 15 August 1947, most kids like me achieved their freedom when they started going to college. I achieved my freedom in may/ june 1978, when I passed my matriculation examination and got admitted to college. When I was in school, the only landmark I passed while commuting between home and school was the railway station. But now I came across almost all the movie halls of Ranchi as I commuted between home and college (St Xavier’s College, Ranchi). Being a college going person, I was considered grown up. In reality I was not even 16 at that time and I was not able to handle this new found freedom with responsibility.

So I began to watch movies with a vengeance when I should have been attending practical classes, that took place in the second half coinciding with the matinee show of movies.

It is not that I only watched matinee shows. There were occasions when I would be alone at home. Then I would watch evening and even night shows. Returning back on foot at midnight after the night show was no big deal for me. Law and order was that good in Ranchi those days. I am not aware how things are there today.

‘Jaani Dushman’ (1979) was much in news even before its release. It was supposed to be a mega movie, challenging all the mega movies that had come before, like say ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960), ‘Waqt’ (1965), ‘Sholay’ (1975) etc. But there was a catch. The censor board felt that the movie was a ‘horror’ movie and watching it would be a dreadful exercise for weak hearts. So Censors, after lots of delays and objections, finally allowed the movie to get released with an A certificate.

I watched this movie in night show. The fact that it was a horror movie, and an A cerificate movie, and thirdly I myself was not an adult till that time did not deter me. Macho people in Bihar (Ranchi was still Bihar those days) did not care for such minor details. 🙂

When I watched the movie, I wondered what was the fuss about this being a ‘horror’ movie. There was no horror whatsoever as far as I was concerned. There was one scene where the ghost is supposedly seen rotating his head while this body is stationary. I could clearly detect that the body was actually built of cardboard, and the ghost (played by Sanjeev Kumar) stood inside the cardboard body and moved his body. Only the most naive people would fail to see this cheap ruse. Instead of feeling any horror, I felt pity at the makers of the movie as well as at the censors.

Even the movie was no great shakes. Indian movie makers have created a false narrative about ichchaadhaari naagin and they keep making movies on this theme. And the gullible movie watchers keep falling for this false narrative.

I was not much impressed with this movie. It was well past midnight when the night show ended and I returned back home on foot, walking some two kms. Most of the walk was along the road running parallel to the rail track going towards Ranchi Railway station.

This movie, which was a damp squib as far as I was concerned, was produced and directed by Raj Kumar Kohli for Shankar Movies, Bombay. The huge star cast of the movie included Sunil Dutt, Sanjeev Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Neeta Mehta, Shobhini Singh, Roopesh Kumar, Madan Puri, Shakti, Anwar Hussain, Amrish Puri, Murad, Sulochana, Jayshree T., Indrani Mukherji, Aarti, Sheetal, Raza Murad, Jagdeep, Paintal Mac Mohan, Ram Soni, Maruti etc. Then there were special appearances by Vinod Mehra, Vikram, Prem Nath, Rekha, Neetu Singh, Bindiya Goswami, Sarika. Yogita Bali and Aruna Irani were in guest appearances. Then there was “above all- special apperance”- by Jeetendra.

Was I impressed by this star cast ? Not a chance. Where were the biggest names of the industry ? No Amitabh Bachchan, No Dharmendra, No Vinod Khanna. No Hema Malini, No Zeenat Aman, No Parveen Babi. I was suitably underwhelmed with the cast of the movie.

The songs of the movie were popular. The Rafi doli song soon became an iconic song, at par with his earlier doli song “Baabul ki Duaayen leti Jaa“. Apart from that I found most other songs s as just so so stuff.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog so far. Here are the details of these five songs :-

Blog post number Song Date of post Singer (s)
459 Tere haathon mein pahna ke choodiyaan 28 December 2008 Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
11607 O meri jaan bol meri jaan 28 November 2015 Kishore KUmar, Anuradha Paudwal
14521 Mausam na koi bahaar jaisa 24 July 2018 Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle
15147 Chalo re doli uthhaao kahaar piya milan ki rut aayi 31 July 2019 Rafi
16751 Saare rishtey naate tod ke aa gayi 7 January 2022 Lata

Only one song from the movie is left to be covered. Here is that song.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shatrughan Sinha utters a few words and that is enough for him to get credited as a singer in this song. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The song is picturised on Reena Roy and Shatrughan Sinha. The previous song covered earlier this year was also picturised on Reena Roy but there it was sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Reena Roy singing separate songs in the voices of different Mangeshkar sisters in the same movie, this did not appear anything special those days, but with passage of time this must be regarded as something special. There may not be so many cases where the same actor sings in the voices of different siblings.

As mentioned earlier I did not find the songs of the movie (apart from one Rafi solo) any great shakes. But I was in a minority. With time, these songs have retained their popularity. Youngsters, may of them not even born when this movie was released appear quite impressed with the songs of the movie. This song, both its singing and picturisation gets favorable comments from most people watching this song on YouTube. When I think about it, I have to grudgingly admit that the songs of this movie are good songs to listen to.

I did not pay much attention to this song in the past. But now that I paid attention, I realise that it is nicely sung song by Asha Bhonsle. With this song, Asha Bhonsle silently and unnoticeably completes 2900 songs in the blog.

So, with this song, “Jaani Dushman”(1979) gets YIPPEED in the blog whereas Asha Bhonsle completes a barely believable 2900 songs in the blog.

Here is the song. Enjoy !


Song-Aisi waisi na samajh sajna(Jaani Dushman)(1979) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Shatrughan Sinha, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

aisi waisi na samajh sajna
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
jaan de doongi ya jaan le loongi
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
jaan de doongi ya jaan le loongi
aisi waisi na samajh sajna

itna to mera dil bhi
jaanta zaroor hai
kitni tu mere paas hai
aur kitni tu door hai

kaante ya phool jo bhi chaahe
ismein daal de
kaante ya phool jo bhi chaahe
ismein daal de
maine to zindagi ka daaman bichha diya
maine to zindagi ka daaman bichha diya
daaman bichha diya
abhi na tu samjhe mujhe apna
haan
mujhe apna
haaye mujhe apna aa aa
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
jaan de doongi ya jaan le loongi ee
aisi waisi na samajh sajna

jo dekh raha hoon kahin wo
khwaab to nahin
kaanton ke bhes mein chhupa
gulaab to nahin

is kadar tu ab dil ke kareeb hai
is kadar tu ab dil ke kareeb hai
lagta hai mere pyaar ka tu hi
naseeb hai
naseeb hai
maine jo kaha
use yaad
haan yaad
zara yaad rakhna aa aa
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
jaan de doongi ya jaan le loongi
aisi waisi na samajh sajna

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Song-Tumse hi is mehfil mein aayi hai bahaar(Chaalu Mera Naam)(1977) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

HUllo Atuldom

Today’s song is courtesy the age-old favourite of millions of Indians who live in the interiors or mofussil towns of India. The Jhumri Talaiyaa, Bhopal, Amravati and other such places whose names we have heard on the air waves whenever there is a readout of the list of farmiash senders for Aap Ki Pasand, or Aap Ki Farmish programs. Yes, I should Thank Vividh Bharati for this song.

Heard it on the late night program last week and did all the necessary research before bringing it on to the blog. When I say I research, I don’t mean the kind that will get me a PHd. My research ends when I discover the following: (1) if the song is there on the blog

(2) what movie is it from
(3) who has sung it
(4) who is on screen in the song
(5) and how soon can I send it to Atulji. The haste is because as time passes I forget what was the song I had ‘bookmarked’ (This is why I was happy when Guruji, who signs as A.D. at the end of his comments to posts on the blog, complimented me on my memory a few days back.)

“Jaise Ko Taisa” was a 1973, AVM production directed by Murugan Kumaran, starring Reena Roy, Jeetendra (double role), Srividya (Southern actress), Ramesh Deo, Anwar Hussain, Kamini Kaushal,Mohan Choti, Dinseh Hingoo, Rojaramani, etc. It had six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and tuned by R D Burman. Two songs are present on the blog:-

Song Date of post
Ab ke saawan mein jee darey 7 January 2015
Chalte chalte peechhe mud ke dekh zara 2 May 2018

‘Bhaiyya re Bhaiyya re’ is a get together song where Anwar Hussain, Ramesh Deo, Dinesh Hingoo, Mohan Choti, are the audience and Jeetendra and Reena Roy are the main dancers leading a chorus who are (going by the video available) on a mission to switch a flower-vase from the table in front of Anwar Hussain and Ramesh Deo. I request followers of the blog, who have seen the movie, to throw some light on why the flower-vase needs to be switched? 🙂

The cause for this celebration song is to wish an Atulite and his better half (Satulite) on their anniversary. This Atulite is a regular contributor of the blog :- contributing with lyrics which are both in English and Devnagari. He is one of the most active contributors to the blog with 400 posts, 515 lyrics in English and 392 in Devnagari….Phew!!! Having touched 400/515/392 with his post today. Congratulations Avinashji and Bhabhiji on your Anniversary. And also on yet another Century. 🙂 🙂

It just also happens that today the world of Hindi Film Music Lovers is celebrating the birth anniversary of their Panchamda a.k.a R D Burman. He was the only son of the legend Sachin and Meera Burman. He is said to have composed his first song ‘ai meri topi palat ke aa’ when he was just seventeen and was used by Sachinda in ‘Funtoosh’ in 1956. He was an assistant to his father in many movie of the late ’50s. His first independent assignment in Bollywood was the 1961 release ‘Chhote Nawab’.

But I need not be listing all his achievements and life history here. We, the followers of this blog and the world, know all of this. So let us get on to the song thinking of our Panchamda, and wishing our Avinashji and his better half on their anniversary.

Party Shuru kiya jaaye. 🙂

# Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood # 8
——————————————————–

Welcome all to this eighth post in this series where we are discussing songs performed by Junior Mehmood as a ‘superstar child artist’.

So far, the following seven songs in this series have been discussed on the blog earlier.

1) lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey

2) Na koi paisa na ilm banaao bambai mein film

3) Mera naam hai Mehmood

4) Birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya

5) Aisa banoonga actor main yaaron

6) Ham hi jaanen ek torey manwa ki peer

7) Janamdin tujhko mubaraak ho

Today’s song is from the 1970 movie ‘Bachpan’.

As mentioned in the earlier posts under this series, ‘Naunihaal-1967’ was the first released movie of child artist Junior Mehmood.

He went on to act in many movies as a child artist then. He was the most loved child artist in those years of end-sixties to mid-seventies.

As a child artist Junior Mehmood achieved a ‘Superstar’ like status. He got to perform on many songs or rather many songs were picturised on him during those days.

We are going to enjoy one such song of Junior Mehmood as a child artist from the movie ‘Bachpan-1970’. The today’s wonderful entertaining song is performed by Junior Mehmood and other child artist including Sachin and Naeem (?) and many others.

This song is a different from his’ other songs as a child artist, because here he is not doing any mimicry of other actors or his guru, but in today’s song he is performing as a ‘girl’ or in a ‘female’ get-up.

In today’s song we see all the child artists (mentioned above) are singing and dancing in a police station where Sanjeev Kumar is in a lock-up. From the lyrics of this song we can guess that all these children have a plan to divert the attention of the on-duty police staff in their singing-dancing activities so that Sanjeev Kumar is able to escape from their custody.

The lyrics, music and singing of this song is very lively and entertaining to watch as Junior Mehmood, Sachin performs by lip syncing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice and lead other children in the performance.

In an interview with Zarina Wahab (available here) Junior Mehmood had mentioned this song as his most favourite song among all the songs picturised on him.

‘Bachpan’ was directed by K.P. Atma for ‘Atma Arts Universal, Bombay’. K.P. Atma co-produced this movie with K.H. Rao. It had Sanjeev Kumar, Master Sachin, Junior Mehmood, Shahid, Anwar Hussain, Mukri, Sunder, Joginder, Baldev Mehta, Keshto Mukherji, Aruna Irani, Sulochana Chatterjee, Tabassum, Pratima Devi, Baby Gayatri, Baby Guddi, Master Alankar, Naeem and Tanuja.

Story of this movie was written by K.P. Atma. Screenplay and dialogues were written by Raj Baldev Raj. Editing of this movie was done by Shivaji Awdhut.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.09.1970.

This movie had total six songs which were written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, and P. Susheela were the playback singers for the songs in this movie.

Three songs from the movie ‘Bachpan-1970’ have been posted earlier on the blog. Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Aaya re khilaune waala 30.08.2010
Mother Mary maa ham tere dulaare hain 25.12.2016
Prem ka rog lagaa loon kaise jee ko main saanwariya 30.08.2020

I had not watched this movie ‘Bachpan-1970’. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s rocking entertaining song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 133 # Remembering Shamshad Begam#
——————————————-————————————————-—
Shamshad Begam sings for Mehmood 😊
——————————————

Today 23rd April’2021 is the eighth remembrance anniversary (14th April 1919 – 23rd April-2013) of yesteryears’ singer Shamshad Begam. One who Naushad always mentioned as ‘a perfect Hindustani voice’.

On this occasion here is a song from the 1971 movie ‘Johar Mehmood In Hong Kong’. I had watched this movie in my childhood with my Uncle and have mentioned it in my earlier post on the blog.

Few songs like ‘jalti hai duniya jalti rahe’, ‘aayo aayo nau-raatri tyohaar’ have always been in my memory since my childhood. Also, the today’s song is one special song which I have never forgotten because on screen it is performed by a ‘beautiful female artist’ (in disguise though 😊)
I often break up in humming this today’s song whenever I am in ‘ Mehmood – mood’ 😊.

It is surprising that today’s song has been missing from the ‘blog’ till now.

Let us have a brief about the movie, before we enjoy the today’s ‘entertaining song’ …

“Johar Mehmood in Hongkong” (1971) was produced by Madan Chopra and K.Z. Sheth. It was directed by S.A. Akbar and was presented by M.O. Bawazir for Mahesh Ashish. The movie had I.S. Johar, Mehmood, Sonia Sahni, Aruna Irani, Tiwari, Kamal Kapoor, Tuntun, Manorama, Madhumati, Haroon, and Pran. Agha, Mukri, Jr. Mehmood, Polson, Shaikh, B.B.

“Warrant”(1975) was directed by Pramod Chakraborty for N P International, Bombay. The movie had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Dara Singh, Satish Kaul, Ajit, Pran, Jankidas, Sulochana, Aparna Chaudhary, Seema Kapoor, Jagdish Raj, V Gopal, Birbal, Habeeb, Pal Sharma, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti, Viju Khote, Ujagar Singh, Lamba, Ratan Gaurang, Praveen Pal, Bunty, Madan Puri, Joginder etc in it.

The movie is described as a “social” movie in HFGK, but it was an “action” movie, ie Dev Anand style action movie. 🙂

I have not seen the movie, but from what I can guage from the picturisation of the songs, Dev Anand plays a crook escaping from the law with Zeenat Aman as his accomplice. Zeenat Aman would play a similar role with Amitabh Bachchan in “Don”(1978) and that movie, unlike “Warrant” (1975) went on to become a super duper hit mainly thanks to Amitabh Bachchan’s superb performance.

I have noticed that the story line of Dev Anand movies of 1970s used to be great but Dev Saab’s insistence on playing the hero in these movies ensured that the movies failed to do justice to the story and they would get forgotten soon. Thankfully, Dev Saab would often reject some movies and his roles in those movies were then given to some other actor and that actor enacted the roles with aplomb. For instance, Dev saab had rejected the movie “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957). That role was then offered to a strugling actor called Shammi Kapoor and we all know that the movie “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957) launched the career of Shammi Kapoor. 16 years later, Dev saab refused another movie. This movie was then offered to another struggling actor. He played the role so well that the movie launched him as the next big star. That movie, which Dev saab rejected was “Zanjeer”(1973) which was offered to Amitabh Bachchan and the rest is history.

Had Dev saab not rejected “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957) and “Zanjeer”(1973) then HF world may not have discovered Shammi “yahoo” Kapoor and Amitabh “angry young man” Bachchan. And these movies, with Dev Saab in lead roles would have done some moderate business and the movie would have ended up along the lines of say “Warrant”(1975).

I can say the same about other Dev Saab starrer movies like “Ye Gulistaan Hamaara”(1973), “Des Pardes”(1978) etc. They all had great story line, but they failed to do justice to the story line and ended up as normal movies instead of all time super hits.

Coming to “Warrant”(1975), the songs of this movie had caught the imagination of HFM lovers during its time. Its song Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana was a big rage, thanks to the unique “kuk kuk” sound contained in it. Other songs too were very popular.

The movie had four songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog so far.
Here are the details :-

Blog post number Song Date of posting Blog day
102 Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana 18 September 2008 62
10515 Main tumse mohabbat karti hoon 19 November 2014 2315
15323 Ladi najariya ladi chali re phuljhadi 3 December 2019 4155

One can see that the most popular song of the movid, Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana was covered in the blog within two months after the launch of the blog. But the second song from the movie was covered six years later. The third song was discussed after another five years.

So a movie with just four songs has not yet been YIPPEED in the blog in nearly 12 years !

Here is the fourth and final song from the movie. This song “suno bhai baaraati” was quite popular during its time.

I have not watched the movie. I watched the picturisation of the song just no. Song is great but the picturisation would not impress people who insist on trying to find logic in the proceedings. The picturisation shows Dev saab and Zeenat Aman being pursued by police. A Christian wedding is taking place in a nearby church. The hero and heroine go and get dressed as groom and bride and give police the slip. I never knew that one can get dressed in wedding dress so fast. where did they locate their dresses so fast ? And how come the people gathered to attend the wedding in the Church started celebrating the fake wedding of our hero and heroine with such gusto and theyeven sang chorus in Konkani in the song ?

Here is the song. It is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

I am unable to mnote don the Konkani portion sung by the chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers familiar with Konkani to help fill in the Konkani lyrics.

ith this song, all the four songs of “Warrant”(1975) get covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

arre dulha dulhan ko akela zara chhodo
pyaar bhari baaten karen jeevan saathi

badi mushkil se dil milte hain

saajan sajni ko akele zara chhodo
mil ke gale lahraayen deepak baati

raat milan ki hai ik baar aati
suno bhai baaraati
suno bhai baaraati

hey
kaam karo sab apna apna
dekh rahe hain hum ek sapna
premi hain khoye huye ae
kaam karo sab apna apna
dekh rahe hain hum ek sapna

arre gudda guddi ko akela zara chhodo
phir dekho preet kya hai rang laati
suno bhai baaraati

In about mid-1940s, there was a demand for dancers in Hindi films following the success of dancers like Azurie and Cuckoo. The demand for dancers can be gauged from the fact that during 1945-50, Cuckoo worked in about 75 films of which she did as many as 34 films in 1950 alone. This ‘demand-supply’ mismatch for dancers led to the entry of new dancers in the Hindi film industry such as Mohana, Helen, Sheila Vaz, Roopmala, Kanchanmala, Kumkum etc during the late 40s and early 50s. One of the lesser known dancers who made a entry into this category during this period was Heera Sawant.

I became aware of Heera Sawant for the first time a few years back while browsing the pages of ‘Filmindia’ magazines available on-line. I had seen a couple of pictures of her in the film ‘Hua Savera’ (1948) in March 1948 issue of the magazine. At that time, I thought that she was one of those actors who came and vanished from Hindi films. But it was not so as I came to know a few months back while collecting the information for my articles on the some of the lesser known dancers of Hindi films.

Today, December 15th is the 85th birthday of Heera Sawant (born on 15/12/1935).

Heera Sawant was born in Sawantwadi taluka of Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. She was the eldest among 4 brothers and 2 sisters. Her father was in the business of motor parts in Mumbai. Soon, the family shifted to Mumbai. She did her schooling at St. Teresa High School and completed her Matriculation. She got entry in the Prithvi Theatres as an actor through her neighbour, a brother of actress Hemavati (wife of D K Sapru) who was already associated with acting in the plays of Prithvi Theatres. During this period, Heera Sawant started learning kathak dance from Master Mohanlal.

Heera Sawant got her first break in Hindi film, ‘Hua Savera’ (1948) when the producer and director of the films saw her performance in one of Prithvi Theatres’ plays. She got the second lead actress’s role with Sapru and Nayantara being the lead actors. The film did not fare well at the box office. However, she got some more assignments after the release of her maiden film. It was her semi-classical dance song, Aarti karo Shankar ki in ‘Naag Panchami’ (1953) which made her popular as a dancer. With this song, she got type-cast as dancer in most of her subsequent films.

In 1964, Heera Sawant turned a producer with her maiden Hindi film ‘Tarzan and Delilah’ (1964). She also produced a couple of Marathi films. Her 3rd Marathi film could not be released resulting in a huge financial loss for her.

Heera Sawant got married to Sundar Arya, a Punjabi businessman. After her husband’s death, she stays in Ahmednagar. [Heera Sawant’s biography is based on an interview which was posted on Shishir Krishna Sharma’s blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ in May 2019].

The active years of filmy career of Heera Sawant was from 1948 to 1969 during which she acted in around 125 films of which around 75 films were in the decade of 1950s. A majority of her films were in the genre of religious, costume drama, action and stunt.

As mentioned earlier, when she ventured into film productions sometime in the first half of 1960s, her acting career seems to have taken a back seat. This was also the period when Helen was the reigning dancer in Hindi films and new dancers cum side actresses such as Bela Bose, Aruna Irani, Minu Mumtaz, Jeevan Kala, Lakshmi Chhaya, Madhumati etc established themselves in the Hindi film industry. By early 1970s, Heera Sawant has virtually retired from the Hindi films.

Some of the popular songs picturised on her are as under:

Song Movie (year)
tim tima tim tim tima tim taare ‘Har Har Mahadev’ (1950)
saari raat jaage laage jo tose nainwaa ‘Baaraati’ (1954)
shama pe aake parwaane ‘Meenaar’ (1954)
tedhi tedhi hamse phire saari duniya ‘Musaafir’ (1957)
mere dard-e-jigar ki har dhadkan ‘Nausherwan-e-Adil’ (1957)
ritu aaye ritu jaaye sakhi ri ‘Bansari Bala’ (1957)
dil milaate jaaiye nazaren milaate jaaiye ‘Return of the Superman’ (1960)

On the occasion of 85th birth day of Heera Sawant, I present one of her dance songs from the film ‘Vazir-e-Azam’ (1961). The song is ‘daghebaaz kyun toone mera dil chheena’ sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Pushpa Marathe. The song is written by Hairat Sitapuri which is set to music by Robin Banerjee.

This is a song picturised on Master Bhagwan and Heera Sawant to divert the attention of the prison guards to facilitate the escape of Suresh from the prison. The orchestration of the song sounds like that of O P Nayyar.

In this year, Lata Mangeshkar achieved a major feat that went unnoticed at that time. She completed 1000 songs as a playback singer in Hindi films. She was the first playback singer to achieve this distinction in HFM.

Here is the summary of her playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1954 :

During the year 1954, she worked for the first time with nine music directors- Arun Kumar Mukherjee, Aziz Hindi, B S Kalla, Ninu Majumdar, S V Venkatraman, Sardar Malik, Sardul Kwatra, Shailesh and Vasant -Ramchandra. As for lyricists, she worked for the first time with Akhtar Yusuf, Daagh, Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, Kaif Bhopali, Keshav, Pt Chandrashekhar, S H Bihari, Saraswati Kumar Deepak, Tanveer Naqvi, and Vishwamitra Adil.

By 1954, Lata Mangeshkar had worked with 68 music directors and 110 lyricists. Top six music directors, namely C Ramchandra (183), Shankar Jaikishan (108), Husnlal Bhagatram (98), Anil Biswas (98), Roshan (65) and Naushad (53) alone composed 705 of these Lata Mangeshkar songs !

Top six lyricists, viz Rajinder Krishan (160), Shailendra (87), Shakeel Badayuni (75), Hasrat Jaipuri (73), P L Santoshi (61) and Prem Dhawan (40) penned as many as 396 of these songs.

We notice that Lata Mangeshkar sang 172 songs in 43 movies of 1954. The blog has 140 of these songs. All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 30 of these movies are covered in the blog. That leaves us with only 13 movies of 1954 that offers us a few Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss.

Alphabetically, the first such movie of 1954 is “Baazooband” (1954).

“Baazooband”(1954) was directed by Ashalata Biswas and directed by Ramanand Sagar for Variety Productions, Bombay. The movie had Sulochana Chatterji, Balraj Sahni, Roopmala, Anwar, Ramesh Kapoor, baby saroj, Om Prakash, Noorie, Linford, Shanta Kunwar, Noorjahana, Brahm, Indira, Sindura etc with Radhakishan as guest artist.

There were seven songs in the movie. Two songs from the movie has been discussed in the past.

The movie had five Lata Mangeshkar songs in it. They were all solo songs. The two songs covered in the blog were both Lata solos. So three more Lata songs are yet to be covered in the blog.

Here is the third such song from “Baazooband”(1954). the song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Prem Dhawan is the lyricst. Music is composed by Md Shafi. Like other Lata Mangeshkar songs, this song is picturised on Roopmala. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify others seen in the picturisation.

“Gunaahon Ka Devta”(1967) was directed by Devi Sharma for Janta Chitra, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rajshree, Jeetendra, Mehmood, Leela Chitnis, Auna Irani, Randheer, Tuntun, Farida, Shahid, S K Prem, Sujata, Jeewan, Jankidas etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from “Gunaahon Ka Devta”(1967) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi and Manna Dey. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is as a “diversion” song on Mehmood and another person (whom I am unable to identify) who gate crash on Jeewan’s wedding reception in Hindi filmy style without being subjected to any checks on their credentials. They are accompanied by two female dancers whom I cannot identify.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors seen in the picturisation.

Blog Day :

4438 Post No. : 15879

Some years back, I recall having seen for the first time on the internet the photo features of Hindi film stars such as Madhubala, Nalini Jaywant and Begum Para in ‘Life’ magazine. These photographs were taken by the magazine’s well known photographer, James Burke in 1951 who was posted in India.  From the standard of 1951, these photographs would have ranked as bold. But one more actress also featured in that magazine – the featured photos were bolder than those of the stars I mentioned earlier. Subsequently, I had also seen her images appearing in ‘Filmindia’ magazines of 1948 and 1949. The actress in the photoshoot of 1951 was Mohana Cabral.

Today, September 11th is the 30th Remembrance Day of Mohana Cabral who died of heart attack this day of the year 1990 in France where she had been staying with her husband and daughter since 1986.

Mohana Cabral (03/02/1929 – 11/09/1990) whose real name was Mona Cabral, was born in Socorro in Bardez taluqa of North Goa in Konkani speaking Christian family. In early 1930s, the family shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) when her father changed his job to Bombay-based Hindustan Construction Company. Mohana did her initial schooling at Victoria High School in Mahim. Later. she was put in a boarding school in Pune where she completed her high school.  In Pune, she joined as a telephone operator in a telephone company. It is through connecting the long distance telephone calls that Mohana got acquainted with some of the film stars of that time including Nargis, Begum Para and Pratima Dasgupta.

Mohana got introduced to Kishore Sahu who offered her a role in his film ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949) which was her debut film though ‘Aag’ (1948) was released first without her name being accredited in the film.  Kishore Sahu changed her name from Mona to screen name, Mohana which got attached with her during the rest of her life not only in films but also in the Konkani plays and singing career.

Sometime in 1948, Mohana got involved with Konkani ‘Tiatr’ in Mumbai. (‘Tiatr’ is a Portuguese word used in Goa for ‘theatre’ for the Konkani dramas encompassing music, dance, and singing. In a way, it is akin to Marathi ‘Sangeet Natak or musical dramas). Her debut Konkani drama was ‘Cortub Avoichem’ (1948) which was directed by the pioneer of Goan Konkani Tiatr, C Alvares, the producer, director, actor, song writer and the singer. In fact, Alvares was instrumental in encouraging girls to play the female roles in his dramas and introduced Mohana and her younger sister, Ophelia. In 1952, Mohana got actively involved with Konkani tiatr in Mumbai, mostly collaborating with C Alvares as an actor-singer and worked in about a dozen plays. Both the sisters were actor-singers in Konkani Tiatr in Mumbai and later in Goa. In fact, in Goa, Mohana is known more as a tiatrist than the Hindi film actress.

In 1951, Mohana met Edward Downing, a Royal Indian Air Force pilot in a hotel where the shooting of her film ‘Sansaar’ (1951) was in progress. They got married in 1951 and had a son, Mark. Unfortunately, her husband died in a plane accident in less than two years of their marriage. In 1955, Mohana got married for the second time with John D’frates who was working for the United Nations and got posted at Beirut.  With this posting, Mohana bid adieu to Hindi film industry. Her last shoot was for the film, ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

In Beirut, Mohana learnt Arabic and began producing dance programmes for Television. She also acted in a couple of dramas on Television. After spending many years in Beirut, her husband got posting in Vienna from where he retired in 1986. Post retirement, Mohana and her family settled in France. Mohana was very much interested in Goan Konkani Tiatr. She would regularly visit India on holidays and act in Konkani dramas in Goa. During the period of her visits, she had also cut a few discs of her non-filmy Konkani songs, some with her mentor, C Alvares.

Mohana died of a heart-attack in France on September 11, 1990 when she was 61. [Thanks for the inputs from Shishir Sharma’s Blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ on Mohana posted on May 13, 2015 and an article in ‘The Navhind Times, Panaji, Goa dated April 6, 2020].

It is interesting to note from her filmography that how quickly Mohana established herself in Hindi film industry. In ‘Aag’ (1948), she had one song role though her first debut film was ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949). In 1949, she had acted in as many as 6 films. 1950 was a blank year for her as probably she got associated with Konkani plays in Mumbai. In 1951 and 1952 she did 5 films each. 1953 and 1954 was again lean years for her. In 1955, she did 4 films before quitting the film industry. In all, she acted in 26 films in her short span of 6 years in the film industry. The full filmography of Mohana is given below:

1948: Aag.
1949: Chaar Din, Jagriti, Kamal, Patanga, Rimjhim, Saawan Aaya Re.
1951: Adaa, Naadaan, Nageena, Sagaai, Sansaar.
1952: Aashiana, Chham Chhama Chham, Najaria, Saloni, Saaqi.
1953: Shole.
1954: Danka, Dost, Shart.
1955: Insaaniyat, Marine Drive, Sau Ka Note, Teerandaz.
1956: Taksaal.

I had noticed in the advertisements of films for which she worked in 1949-50 that  her name was written either in bold or capital letters. That shows that Mohana was popular among the audience of that time and her name mattered for the success of the films. In most of her films, she got roles of a ‘side kick’ to the comedians like Gope, Agha and as a singer-dancer.  Her popularity can be gauged from the fact that in most of her films, Mohana will have at least one song picturised on her. Some of the songs picturised on her for which video clips are available for watching are listed below:

Raat ko ji haay raat ko ji chamke taare – ‘Aag’ (1948)

Pyaar ke jahaan ki niraali sarkaar hai – ‘Patanga’ (1949)

My my my my my dear – ‘Nageena’ (1951)

O baabu kaise dil karoon qaaboo – ‘Sagaai’ (1951)

Lucknow chalo ab raani – ‘Sansaar’ (1951)

Haseena sambhal sambhal ke chal – ‘Saaqi’ (1952)

O madam do se ho gaye ek ham – ‘Aashiana’ (1952)

Dil mera hai deewaana – ‘Shart’ (1954)

Mohana has also rendered two songs on herself in the film ‘Rimjhim’ (1949).

On the occasion of Mohana’s 30th Remembrance Day, I present a song “Aisi Nainwa Ki Laagi Kataar” from ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955) rendered by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle. The song is written by Rajinder Krishan which is set to music by C Ramchandra. The song is picturised on Mohana as a part of a ploy to wood wink a soldier to stripe out his uniform to be used for disguising Mangal (Dilip Kumar) as soldier to gain access to the prison to facilitate the release of Bhanupratap (Dev Anand).

In the video clip, there are only two stanzas where as the audio clip contains the full song of four stanzas. This is the 10th song to appear on the Blog out of 17 songs in ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar

na marodo kalaiya hamaar
kangan mora churar murar

na marodo kalaiya hamaar
kangan mora churar murar
haan haan kare churar murar
 
nainon mein lagaaun tohe kajara banaay ke
manwa ki dibiya mein rakh loon chhupaay ke
nainon mein lagaaun tohe
nainon mein lagaaun tohe kajara banaay ke
manwa ki dibiya mein rakh loon chaupaay ke
jataao na itna pyaar
ke mann mora surar surar
haan haan kare surar surar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar

dekho na dekho mohe tirchi nazar se
darr mohe laage tori patli kamar se
dekho na dekho mohe
dekho na dekho mohe tirchi nazar se
darr mohe laage tori patli kamar se
dekhi jab ke suratiya tohaar
kamar mori ghumar ghumar
haan haan kare ghumar ghumar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
 
main tori bulbul tu mora kaaga
kaage se bulbul ka taanka hai laaga
main tori bulbul
main tori bulbul tu mora kaaga
kaage se bulbul ka taanka hai laaga
aa ja chalen ghataaon ke paar
udd jaayen furar furar
haan haan jaayen purur purur
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
