Blog Day : 3542 Post No. : 14218

Hullo Atuldom

9+2=11
11+3= 14
14+4= 18

“Confused”? “Flummoxed” or I should be asking “stumped”? Of course, all the words mean the same. I am sure the additions that I have done to open this post have set people thinking.

Well it has something to do with the last three songs that were posted from the movie “Mome Ki Gudiya” (that is how “mom” was spelt in the title card and the movie’s censor certificate dated 12th April 1972). The famous website Hindigeetmala.net lists four songs for the movie, but as I sat through the movie to recheck I found the movie had five songs. I think HFGK will also give the same number, the song “Bandhan toote na sanwariya” comes twice then the number of songs count will be six.

“Reshma jawaan ho gayi” is the first song in the movie; posted with a post by Sudhirji. That song happens when Tanuja who plays Sheel takes objection to being called “chutki”.

“Whenever I had been to Brindavan I have seen shooting of Hindi and South India movies. Except for the last time.
Now It has gone to dogs. The flowers have wilted and trees are dried up. Please do not take your parents as one has to walk compulsorily for few kilometres”.

This was our Nitin Shah’s comment after the above song. I must say I had a similar experience when I visited Brindavan this year, in the month of January. The flowers were not there but some lighting still happens, they have a musical fountain show and most of the fountains were working but I suppose visiting the place in summer might disappoint a tourist as there will be little water in the dam.

“Baaghon me bahaar aayi” is the second song which plays when Sheel and Ravi (Ratan Chopra) are on their honeymoon. It is picturised in Brindawan Gardens of Mysore. The movie’s makers have thanked the people and government of Mysore state for cooperating in the making of the movie. (A small doubt- was Mysore still a separate state in 1971/ 72 ?). This was the first song from the movie to be posted on the blog.
[Ed note:- Mysore was a separate state since 1956. It was renamed as Karnataka in 1973]

The third song from the movie that is posted happens at karwa chauth. “Bandhan toote na sanwariya” occurs just before climax. Post the song Sheel shoots her mama Shaligram played by Jeewan just as he tries to stab Ravi.

So that then are the three posts for this movie posted in 2009, 2011 and 2014 – there I have explained 9+2 and 11+3. We are in 2018 i.e 14+4 simple 🙂

I sat through the movie before writing this post and here is the gist of the movie:

Ravi, the only son of wealthy widower Rai Bahadur Gangaram, falls in love with fellow-collegian, Sheel, but is shocked to find that she is to be his future step-mother. His father decides to step away, lets the couple get married, and shortly thereafter passes away. A few months later, Sheel gets pregnant and her parents as well as her maternal uncle, Shaligram, come to visit her. It is during this visit that Ravi will find out that Sheel has been living a secret life, and the real reason why she married him. Devastated, he will face even more trauma and scandal when the Police will arrest his wife for murder.

The secret of Sheel’s life is that her parents (Paro and Rashid Khan) and mama use her to lure rich old men into marriage and see to it that Sheel doesn’t consummate the marriage. And a few days after marriage they decamp with the rich man’s wealth. One such old man is Om Prakash who tries to force himself on Sheel but she injures him and flees thinking she has killed him. Another secret of Sheel’s life is that she has been kidnapped by the trio in infancy from Nasir Hussain’s haveli. This fact is unearthed by Premnath when he appears in court to defend Sheel.

So that then is what the movie was all about. 🙂

I think “Dolly ki Doli” which came in 2015 had a similar story of a young con-girl marrying into rich families.

The song with this post is the fourth song in the movie. It comes in Sheel’s dream when Ravi tells her “how much he has waited for her?” Etc. etc. It is a rather long song. It is in the voice of Anand Bakshi. This movie had two songs that were sung by Anand Bakshi. After sitting through the movie I felt the voice suited the actor perfectly. Another thing that I found was this was the debut of Anand Bakshi as a singer.

The movie opens by paying shraddhanjali to composer Jaikishan the composer who was part of three of Mohan Kumar’s initial movies.

Today (March 30th, 2018) is the 16th death anniversary of Anand Bakshi. He who gave us songs which sounded as if written by a common man. Such simple words to convey normal feelings leke a good-bye “achcha toh hum chalte hai”; monetary lessons “aamdani athannee kharcha rupiaya”; a man’s plight after marriage “brahma o brahma”; a host of lullabies “sooyi ja tara”, “aakhiyon mein chote chote sapne sajaayeke” (to list just two); roothna-manaana “Rona kabhi nahin rona”, “nahin main nahin dekh sakta tujhe rote huye” and songs with roadside Romeo kind of lyrics “jumma chumma de de”.

He has written songs for three films with the title “Majboor”; two “Mehbooba” (one of which released in 2008 six years after he had passed away). He was a master with words and if I may say- in the same league as Majrooh Sultanpuri in the sense that he had a long career of almost 40 years and wrote similarly simple lyrics and was always in demand by all film makers.

He had an ambition to be a singer too which was showcased in a few songs for which he used to sing the opening lines etc. I had discovered a song where he had given playback along with Bhupinder, Manna Dey and Kishore Kumar for “Sholay” but unfortunately that song never featured in that movie. I was aware of one full length song in “Mome Ki Gudiya” but before I sat to write this post I found that was already posted. But I am not upset as I found a very beautiful song from the same movie but it is rather long almost 6 minutes. Here it is:-

Song-Main dhoondhh raha thha sapnon mein (Mome Ki Gudiya)(1972) Singer-Anand Bakshi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

main dhoondhh raha thha sapnon mein
tumko anjaanon apnon mein
main dhoond raha thha sapnon mein
tumko anjaano apno me
raaste me mujhe ek phool mila toh maine kaha
maine kaha
ae phool tu kitna sundar hai
lekin tu raakh hai mauj nahin
ja mujhko teri khoj nahin
main dhoondhh raha tha sapnon mein

main deewaana anjaane mein
ja pahuncha phir maikhaane mein
raste mein mujhe ik jaam mila to maine kaha
maine kaha
ae jaam tu kitna dilkash hai
lekin tu haar hai jeet nahin
ja teri meri preet nahin
main dhoondhh raha thha sapnon mein

main badhkar apni hasti se
guzra taaron ki basti se
raste mein mujhe phir chaand mila to maine kaha
maine kaha
ae chaand tu kitna raushan hai
par dilbar tera naam nahin
ja tere bas ka kaam nahin
deepak ki tarah jalte jalte
jeevan path par chalte chalte
raste mein mujhe sansaar mila to maine kaha
maine kaha
sansaar tu kitna achcha hai
lekin zanjeer hai dor nahin
ja tu mera chitchor nahin
main dhoondhh raha thha sapnon mein

kuchh aur chala main banjaara
toh dekha mandir ka dwaaraa
mandir mein mujhe bhagwaan mila toh maine kaha
maine kaha
bhagwaan tera ghar sab kuchh hai
lekin saajan ka dwaar nahin
pooja pooja hai pyaar nahin
beeta ke chain akele mein
pahuncha saawan ke mele mein
mele mein tumhe jab dekh liya to maine kaha
maine kaha
tum hi toh ho
tum hi toh ho
chitchor mere
man meet mere
tum bin pyaase thhe geet mere
hmmhmm oooo hmmm
oooo hmmmmm oooo
hmmmm hoooo aaaa
hmmmm hoooo aaaa
hmmmm hoooo hoo

Blog Day : 3537 Post No. : 14207

An interesting observation regarding the Yippeee process for the film that is getting Yippeee’d today. Regular readers would have noticed a pattern in the manner that the films are getting Yippeee’d these days. Generally, in the case of films with just two or three songs remaining to be posted, the last two (or last three) songs kind of appear at a very rapid pace, almost on a daily basis, one right on top of the other. With such films, the penultimate one (or two) songs appear in quick succession followed by the final song of the film, on the next day.

Not in the case of the film being Yippeee’d today. On examining the list of songs of this film as they appear in the table below, the penultimate song of this film came on board on 12th Jan, 2018. And its Yippeee song today appears after a gap of almost two and a half months. And the reason for this delay – it is yours truly, of course. 🙂

When the penultimate song got posted on 12th Jan earlier this year, I immediately sent a note to Atul ji, requesting for doing the Yippeee honors for this film. The reason is that I wanted to bring on board the video of the song. Apparently the earlier posted songs of the film ‘Bus Conductor’, from 1959, were in video form, as one can make out from the write-ups of the first three songs of this film posted. These first three songs came on board on 2009, 2014 and 2016, and they were earlier available in video form. Now, these songs are no longer available, and the YT account of the erstwhile uploader has been blocked due to “multiple copyright infringements”. So the video clips of these songs are no longer available online. (Once again, the caveat – as far as I can search it online 🙂 ).

I have been able to acquire the video of this film through one of my good friends. I do not wish to say that we are the only ones having a this video film. Quite possibly, the video version is also in the hands of other friends, known or unknown. So anyway, I wanted to upload the video of this song for this post today. But as I was checking the previous posts for this film, I realized what had happened, Then I decided not to post the video clip of the song on YT. And the link that I am using in this post for now, is the audio upload of this song by Sa Re Ga Ma.
[Ed Note: The video clip of the song is now added on Vimeo, as suggested by Atul ji. The link is added below.]

And so, with this song, today we add the 1959 film ‘Bus Conductor’ to the list of films having all their songs showcased on our blog.

The film is a production from the banner of Sharda Films, Bombay, produced by Ashok Bhambri. It is a social drama, directed by Dwarka Khosla. The cast of actors, as listed in the Geet Kosh, reads like – Shyama, Premnath, Amarnath, Maruti, Satish Batra, Sujata, Umesh Sharma, Ramlal, Khairati, Narbada Shankar, Ameer Bano, Sadhna, Surya Kumari, Helen, Kanchanmala, Sheela Vaz and Cuckoo. An interesting aside here. Maruti, whose name appears in the list actors, plays the role of a dance teacher in the film. He is the friend of the hero, played by Premnath. As I was watching the credits of the film, I discovered that the story of this film is written by Maruti himself.

The film has six songs. All the songs are written by Noor Devasi. And the music has been composed by the duo of Bipin-Babul. The five songs of this film posted earlier, are listed below.

Dil Se Main Mujh Se Dil Takra Gaya Bus Conductor 1491 23-Jun-09
Zindagi Mein Rang Bhara Hai Pyaar Ka Bus Conductor 10550 29-Nov-14
Man Mein Tere Kyaa Hai Bataa De Gori Bus Conductor 12625 27-Nov-16
Daanv Chalne Ko Hai Bus Conductor 13613 26-Sep-17
Paas Hamaare Aaiye Bus Conductor 13909 12-Jan-18

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle, and in the film it is presented as a dream sequence. Shyama is sleeping, and she sees a dream in which she is singing this song, as she plays the sitar, and that she is also dancing to this song. The sequence is filmed as alternating shots that show Shyama playing the sitar and singing, and also dancing simultaneously. Surely possible in a dream sequence only.

As I was checking out the earlier posts, I came across the query from Atul ji himself, as to what is the ‘Bus Conductor’ connection in the film. So I checked out the video. The role of the bus conductor in the film is played by Premnath, who is otherwise a rich person, belonging to an affluent family. The reason that he goes underground and becomes a bus conductor, is explained in the beginning of the film.

Premnath belongs to a very rich family of landlords. He is an aspiring writer, albeit an unsuccessful one. He writes short stories, and sends them for publication to different magazines. His stories are always getting rejected. And so he makes a decision that he will leave his home and its luxuries, and live like a common person, search for a job, and work to earn a living – all this for a learning experience of life, so that he is able to genuinely write about life and people, and make his stories more convincing.

There is an emotionally charged scene in the beginning of the film, in which we see him receive some more rejections in mail, and we see an outburst in which he tells his bhabhi (wife of elder brother) that he is leaving home, and will return only when he has achieved success as a writer. He declares that he forgoes all the comforts and luxuries of his rich-person life, will go out into the world to fend for himself, get a firsthand experience of a common man’s life, and write about it. With this loud and emotionally charged declaration, he departs from his home to start a new life incognito. I must add that the performance by Premnath in this scene, did not sound very convincing to me.

So he leaves his luxuries and finds a job as a bus conductor. The rest of the film is about his interactions with people. He makes friends with Maruti, who lives in a chawl and dreams about being a choreographer in films. He meets Shyama who is also from a rich family, but is forced to ride a bus one day when her car breaks down. She forgets her bag on the bus, giving an opportunity to the make-believe bus conductor to play the honest good Samaritan and take the bag to her home. Which of course leads to more things, as expected.

He also witnesses a murder, as one passenger alighting from his bus is pushed under the wheels of the bus itself – he tries to chase the culprit but is unable to apprehend him. The person behind the murder is connected with Shyama’s family, and story gets into the expected filmy complexities.

Of course, all is well in the end, as the rich girl gets a rich husband to be, the murder is solved and the culprit apprehended – rather killed as he runs on to a railway track as he is being chased by the hero and the police. If the writer wrote a new story and it got published; I must have missed that sequence in the quick review that I did of this film. And the rich-boy-masqerading-as-a-poor-boy returns home to his luxuries with his lady love.

On the whole, it is quite an un-convincing plot, with equally un-convincing performances. And as is always the case, it is the songs that draw us.

But nonetheless, one more film to be Yippeee’d on our blog.

Hullo Atulwaasis

I know many followers of this blog are also fans of cricket. I am sure many have their favourite cricket commentators. I will not say Sunil Gavaskar is my favourite commentator but yes, I remember many points that he has made over the years in his commentary. Specially in the period when he had just taken to commentary after his stint as a successful cricketer. This is a point he has made regularly, it can be taken as his advice to young cricketers. He has said and I quote: “always try to reach your milestone run of 50 or 100 with a four or two, never a single.”
