Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 10
————————————————————————————–

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Nainaa-1973’.

One song from this movie was posted on the blog ten years back on this day. In all, five songs were discussed on this day ten years ago on 19 January 2012.

Here is the list.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Muhabbat mein aise zamaane bhi aaye Sagaai(1951) All Songs covered
Ye samaa ye khushi kuchh bolo jee bolo jee Ghar Ghar Ki Baat(1959) All Songs covered
Saaraa mora kajraa chhudaayaa toone Do Dil(1965) All Songs covered
Hone lagi hai raat jawaan jaagte raho Nainaa(1972) 5 of 7 Songs posted
Koyi ye kaise bataaye ke wo tanha kyun hai Arth(1982) 3 of 5 Songs posted

From the above table we can see that out of the five movies presented on the blog on 19.01.2012, three movies viz. ‘Sagaai-1951’, ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Baat-1959’ and ‘Do Dil-1965’ have already been Yippeeee’ed on the blog.

That leaves us two movies i.e., ‘Nainaa-1973’ and ‘Arth-1982’ from which songs can be discussed today.

I am presenting a song from ‘Nainaa-1973’ for which the lyrics were sent by our dear Prakash ji.

‘Nainaa-1973’ was directed by Kanak Mishra for ‘Shakti International, Bombay’. It had Shashi Kapoor, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rahman, Akashdeep, David, Padma Khanna, Sanjana, Shaukat Kaifi, Praveen Pal, Madhumati, Jagirdar, Naagar, Samson, Feroza, Teerath, Polsan, Dhanraj, Sitaram, Krishna Kumar, Radheshyam, Jugnu and others.

This movie introduced Darpan and Siddharth. Farida Jalal, A.K. Hangal, and Rajshree have special appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.09.1973.

This movie had seven songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri (five songs), Kaifi Azmi and Indeewar (one song each).

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Here is the list of songs this movie had as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Hone lagi hai raat jawaan, jaagte raho Asha Bhonsle 19.01.2012

Out of the above list, I am aware of two songs ‘hamko to jaan se pyaari hai tumhaari aankhen’ and ‘albele sanam tu laaya kahaan’. May be other songs will turn out to be familiar after I listen to them.

I am sure I had not heard today’s song earlier. Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Sharda. On screen it is Shashi Kapoor and Padma Khanna lip syncing the song. The song is a ‘party song’ where other than Shashi Kapoor and Padma Khanna we can see Moushumi Chatterjee, David and others.

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

Let us now enjoy today’s entertaining song 😊

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 159 # Missing Films of 1972 – 06#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ (1972). I had never heard of this movie earlier. I became aware of this movie only through HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

The film is directed by K Chatterjee for I.M.K. Films, Bombay. The star cast as listed in Geet Kosh includes Suma, Dinesh Rai, Sajan, Sonal, Darpan, Shambhu Mukherjee, Kailash Sharma, Gopal Bhatnagar, Ranjana, Usha, Sarita Devi, Preetam, Prem Roop, Samajeet, Prakash, Sudhanshu, Anil, Shyam, Manik, Sadanand, Udayveer, Prem, Mirchandani, BK Mukherjee, Sudhir, Satish, Namdev, Awasthi, Krishna, Satyadeep, and others. Anupama had a guest appearance in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 17.07.1972

This movie has three songs written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and composed to music by Usha Khanna. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

01 Tum Kabhi Saamne Aa Jaao To Poochhoon Tumse Pankaj Udhas
02 Tori Nathani Kaahe Haale Doley Ri Usha Khanna, Chitra Singh

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. Today’s song is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh and picturised on two actresses whom I am unable to identify, and many other artistes are seen in the picturisation of this song.
[Ed Note: The two dancers are Anupama (in orange dress) and Habiba Rehman (in blue dress). Thanks to Prakash ji for the identification.]

Here is the alphabetical list of movies of 1972 up to today’s movie, which is the 61st film in this list.
[Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs.

Note: – Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johny’ and ‘Hunterwaali’ seems to be unavailable as of now. And there is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’ and ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ as mentioned above.

Today’s song from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh. Music is composed by Usha Khanna. The video and audio versions have common ‘first stanza’ of the song but the second stanza in both the version is different.

As mentioned above I am unable to identify the artistes. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy the today’s lovely song…

तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

पूछ के चोरी चोरी

पूछ के चोरी चोरी
लाज का घुंघटा क्यों खोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

बोले ये खिली खिली गालों की कलियाँ
पिया के संग तू मनाए रंगरलियाँ
मोहे सता के तोहे मिलता है क्या री
छेड़ करोगी तो मैं दे दूँगी गारी
मानो मानो गुइंया॰॰आं॰॰आं
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

डाला है डाका तू ने मेरे ही घर में
फिर भी बुरी हूँ मैं री तोरी नज़र में

किसको बुलाया था री तूने अंगनवा
कैसा है दिखने में तोरा सजनवा
पहले सखी री तोहे ननदी बनाऊँगी
पाछे में सगरे ये बतियाँ बताऊँगी
मानो मानो गुइंया॰॰आं॰॰आं
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 09
———————————————————

96th birth anniversary of O. P. Nayyar

Today, finally we arrive at a Rafi-Asha duet on the occasion of 96th birth anniversary of legendary composer of beautiful songs, OP Nayyar. I am sure, I have long back looked at this duet and saved the link multiple times in different laptops/folders.

I, for one, am most happy that this was somehow missed by all regular contributors to the blog, and not yet posted.  So that I am having a quintessential Rafi-Asha duet by OPN, which is written by Qamar Jalaalabadi.

Qamar Jalaalabadi has already featured in this series.  So, this post in about Rafi Sahab’s association with Asha Bhonsle and OP Nayyar. Film is ‘Basant’ from 1960. The following 10 songs of this film are already posted on the blog:

Baaje Waala Patiyaale Waala
Chori Chori Ik Ishaara Ho Gaya Hai
Duniya Pakki Four Twenty
Hamne Unke Saamne Pehle To Khanjar Rakh Diya
Mere Dil Pe Lagaa De Darling Apne Naam Ki Chit
Mere Lahange Mein Ghunghroo Lagaa De
Nainon Mein Sooraj Ki Kirnen
Peechhe Hat Hat Hat Babu Chhed Naa
Raaste Mein Ik Haseen
Ukkad Dukkad Bamba

To find an OPN-Rafi song, I was just going through the list of songs Music Director-wise page in the blog and I found that right from ‘Baaz’ (1953) which is the third film score for OPN after ‘Aasmaan’ and ‘Chham Chhama Chham’ in 1952, Rafi Sahab is a regular in all his films.  Rafi Sahab has no songs under OPN in the film film ‘Mangu’ (1954).

Significant, popular and hit music scores of OPN-Rafi combination:

 

Year Name of Films
1955 Mr. & Mrs. 55
Musafirkhaana
1956 Bhaagam Bhaag
CID
Choomantar
Hum Sab Chor Hain
Naya Andaaz
Shrimati 420
1957 Johny Walker
Mai Baap
Naya Daur
Qaidi
Tum Sa Nahin Dekha
Ustaad
1958 12 O’clock
Howrah Bridge
Mr. Cartoon MA
Mujrim
Phagun
Sone Ki Chidiya
1959 Do Ustaad
1960 Basant
Jaali Note
Kaplana
Mitti Mein Sona
1962 Ek Musafir Ek Haseena
Hongkong
1963 Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon
1964 Kashmir Ki Kali
1965 Mere Sanam
1966 Aqalmand
Do Dilon Ki Dastaan
Saawan Ki Ghata
Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi
1968 Hamsaaya

This combination gives us a real treat of great songs from mid 50’s to late 60’s. I am getting the feeling that I have missed something in the above list, so it may be worth visiting again.  I have counted 200 plus songs in the excel sheet, so that makes a good sizable portion of all songs composed by OPN in his career.

Total tally of these OPN and Asha Bhonsle songs is as below:

OP Nayyar (1952-1994)

487

71 movies (562)
Asha Bhonsle

2887

7874

As for Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets, 547 of these are posted on the blog.  Compare this with 348 Rafi-Lata duets in the blog. At a guess there are around 450 Rafi-Lata duets, as compared to anything between 650-700 Rafi-Asha duet songs. Rafi-Asha duets are too many to go through at short notice.  So I will surmise to say that these two have sung many iconic and classic songs under numerous music directors, like OPN, SDB, RDB, Ravi, Chitragupt, Kalyanji Anandji etc.

So here’s is song, a duet by OPN in the film ‘Basant’ (1960).  The year 1960 is the peak of OPN, but he was to go on to give greater musical treat to Hindi film music in the 60’s, with Rafi and without Rafi in a rare instance.  His association with Asha Bhonsle is a long one, which eliminated the need for more than one female playback singer in a film’s score.  Asha Bhonsle is the most versatile singer to have graced the Hindi film playback field.  No doubt, OPN has a big role to play in shaping Asha’s career, in the face of stiff competition from her sister Lata Mangeshkar, who ruled the field for more than 30 years.

OP Nayyar has the distinction of having succeeded in the film industry music scene, without having Lata Mangeshkar sing a single song for him.  It makes a big statement about OP Nayyar, to have withstood this sort of situation and survived spectacularly, swimming against the tide.

The song must have been filmed on Shammi Kapoor and Nutan, seeing they are the lead pair of the film.  Johnny Walker and Kammo are another pair in the film, but the song is sounding like a Shammi Kapoor song. So this one is also among the last few Rafi songs on Shammi Kapoor, to be posted here on this blog. Rafi-Shammi Association details have to wait for another day.

Mukesh and his Co-Singers – 8
——————————————–

Today, we take up Mukesh’s association with playback singer Jagjit Kaur wherein there is a solitary duet and that too in an unreleased film called ‘Hum Ek Hain’.

There are 3 released movies named ‘Hum Ek Hain’ and one unreleased. Mukesh has sung one solo in one of the released movies under Usha Khanna and one solo and a duet in the unreleased movie under Khaiyyam. Confused? Well, me too and hence the table below.

Films titled ‘HUM EK HAIN’
Year of release Composer Mukesh songs
1946 Hunslal Bhagatram Nil
1969 Usha Khanna One solo
Unreleased Khayyam A solo and a duet with Jagjit Kaur
1982 N/A N/A

Further, I came across a rather familiar song which is again represented by the name “Hum Ek Hain” – “Awaaz Do Hum Ek Hain.  And seeing that popular actors have been featured in the video version of the song, one is left to imagine which of the above films, the said song belongs to.

Fortunately, I did not have to struggle much to trace the details as it was amply clear that it was a stand-alone NFS (1962) patriotic song produced by Govt of India’s Films Division and sung with much gusto by Rafi Saab. Details of the said song are represented on our blog in this link here. Of all the composers Khayyam Saab scored music for the album thereby creating additional curiosity as well as confusion for me.

Now, an original film booklet sheet of 1969 film in which Mukesh has a solo is easily available on the net and is reproduced below.

For some strange reason, Mukesh’s name is missing in the list of playback singers. I am not sure if the song was dropped from the film soundtrack, but the solo does exist in audio form.

I have covered one post on Mukesh’s complete association with Usha Khanna – “Tera Mera Pyaar Koi, Aaj Kal Ki To Baat Nahin“, and two separate posts on his filmi (“Sab Tthaath Pada Reh Jaayega“) and NFS songs (“Na Hui Gar Mere Marne Se Tasalli Na Sahi“) under composer Khaiyyam. Many songs in the said three posts are still available for grabs for covering in the blog.

Coming to Mukesh’s combo with Jagjit Kaur, I have said in the beginning of the post that there is a solitary duet. It’s a surprise that the two artists did not collaborate more in spite of Mukesh seemingly to be close to Khayyam Saab family. However, we should remember that Khayyam Saab himself engaged Jagit Kaur sparingly for playback songs and relied more on the two Mangeshkar sisters.

As we are well aware, both Khayyam Saab and his wife Jagjit Kaur left for their heavenly abode in the very recent past.

Khayyam Saab:           18 February 1927 – 19 August 2019
Jagjit Kaur:                1930 – 15 August 2021

I pay tributes to both the artists and bring forth this duet of Jagjit Kaur and Mukesh from an unreleased film titled ‘Hum Ek Hain’ and composed by Khayyam Saab. Jagjit Kaur sings in unison with Mukesh and her voice is not heard separately. Such is the rarity of this only duet of the combo.

Song – Ram Kaho Ya Rahim Kaho Tum Krishn Kaho Ya Kareem Kaho  (Hum Ek Hain) (UR) (1960s) Singer – Mukesh, Jagjit Kaur (only in chorus with Mukesh), Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Khayyaam
Mukesh + Jagjit Kaur
Mukesh + Jagjit Kaur + Chorus
Chorus

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

wo hai allah
wo hai ishwar
wo hai mukti dhaam
ek nahin sau roop hain us ke
ek nahin sau naam

ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho

mandir masjid ek hain dono us ke aage
uski leela dekh naa paayen mahal abhaage

Hullo Atuldom

KJ Yesudas – the bridge between South Indian and North Indian songs. Classical – both Carnatic and Hindustani, Light Music, Bhajan, and film music have been enriched by this maestro who turns a year older, today the 10th of January. Some people are omnipresent in our lives – Yesudas is one of them. We have grown up hearing him sing “Gori Tera Gaaon Bada Pyaara“, “Kaa Karoon Sajani Aaye Na Baalam“, “Dil Ke Tukde Tukde Karke Muskura Ke Chal Diye“, “Koi Gaata Main So Jaata” and numerous other songs. And for his fans who also understand other languages “Mayechi Sauli” from ‘Nanand Bhavajay’ (1991), and a few songs in Bengali, Oriya, and a few international languages too. I am not listing his songs from South Indian films that will be on the personal playlists of his fans.

I cannot forget that it was Yesudas’s voice that made me (a certified Bollywood addict) appreciate some Krishna bhajans “Krishna Ne Begane Baaro” (for one) and the lori (lullaby) that is played in the Sabarimala Temple before the temple closes for the day “Harivarasanam” (a video that was uploaded five years back) (original recording). I am sure there will be followers of the blog who will be able to give us a list of their favourite bhajans that were rendered by the legend KJ Yesudas.

In my honest opinion he is a fit recipient of the Padma Awards- Padma Shri in 1975, Padma Bhushan in 2002, and Padma Vibhushan in 2017. Additionally he has won eight National awards for Best singer and numerous State Awards and Filmfare Awards. It is a measure of his stature that Swaralaya award for music artistes in recognition of their outstanding performance is named ‘Swaralaya Yesudas Award”- this award is instituted by a Kerala entertainment channel and Swaralaya an organisation that promotes music. I can go on and on about all the awards that he has been bestowed upon.

As I set out to write this post I had a feeling that we may have run out songs by Dasettan (as he is addressed by his Malayalee fans) I find that we have only 62 songs from Hindi films on the blog, so that means we have a long way to go.

Today we are going to hear a song from ‘Maha Shaktimaan’ (1985). I don’t recall anything about this movie even if it is a release of the ’80s, other than the ‘non-ear non-eye’ friendly Asha Bhonsle song ‘Mamalu Mamalu’ (this also I recalled when I googled for songs of this film). But thankfully there is a better song in this movie which is sung by Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Yesudas, a song which has Yesudas’s trademark classical touch to it. The music director for this movie is Bappi Lahiri and Indeevar was the lyricist. The movie seems to have had only three songs and cast that had Meenakshi Sheshadri, Raj Babbar, Kim, Danny, Pradeep Kumar, Urmila Bhatt, Karan Shah, Jaya Malini etc. From the poster in the video of the accompanying song it appears like a dance of Raj Babbar and Meenakshi, but since I didn’t find a video to go with it we cannot be sure.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 07
————————————————————————————–

This day ten year ago was 10 January 2012. That day saw five songs from five different movies getting discussed on the blog. Here are the details:-

blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5275 Chaand bhi koi deewaana hai Apna Ghar Apni Kahaani (1968) 4 songs covered out of 6 so far
5276 Tu jo mere sur mein Chitchor (1976) Fourth and final song of the movie. Movie YIPPEED with this song.
5277 Zidd na karo ab to ruko Lahu Ke Do Rang (1979) 4 songs covered so far out of 8
5278 Jaanm jaanam tera mera pyaar naya hai Saawan Ko Aane Do(1979) Movie YIPPEED by now
5279 Sapna dekhen mere khoye khoye naina Anand Mahal (1977) Only this song from the movie has been covered in the blog so far

“Lahu Ke Do Rang”(1979) is one of the movies that is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

“Lahu Ke Do Rang”(1979) was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for DeLuxe Pro, Bombay. The movie had Vinod Khanna (double role), Shabana Azmi, Danny, Helen, Indrani Mukherjee, Shammi, Prema Narayan, Baby Shaalu, Ranjeet, Vandana Shashtri, Goga Kapoor, Macmohan, Col. Raj Kapoor, Jawahar Kaul, Mohan Sherry, Rajan Haksar, Ravi Cho[ra, Sood, Manmauji, Ratan Gaurang, Bachan Sngh, Master Ravi, Valecha etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it according to HFGK, but one noticed that song number 8 (singers uncredited) is the same song as song number 5. So in reality, “Lahu Ke Do Rang”(1979) has seven songs in it and not 8.

Four songs have been covered in the blog.

As blog ten year challenge, here is the fifth song from “Lahu Ke Do Rang”(1979). This song is sung by kishore Kumar and Sulakshana Pandit. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Vinod Khanna and Prema Narayan.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film ‘Dekho Jee’ (1947).

The year 1947 is a reminder not only for the Independence of India, but also for the upheaval that took place in the film industry that time. More than in any other industry in India, Muslims were plentiful, working in different sections and departments of the Hindi film industry. majority of them migrated to the newly formed Muslim Nation of Pakistan. This did create a lot of disturbance in the film industry. Right from the beginning of 1947, there were signs that soon the British would leave India – after dividing it into two Nations, India and Pakistan. When the month and date became known for the Partition, there was a great hurry among the filmmakers to complete their projects on hand and in process, compromising many factors like quality of the film, number of songs and such other things.

This resulted in the record number of films made in 1947 alone – 181 Hindi films and about 100 films in other languages in India. This was a record which remained unbroken till 1985, when 187 Hindi films were made. Thus from 1931 to 1985, this record remained unbroken for more than 50 years ! Obviously, this resulted in a big compromise on quality to achieve quantity with many films produced half heartedly. Most or rather many films made in 1947 remained obscure, unheard of and many flopped due to poor quality. Actually only few films were released in 1947, because many films were released in 1948 and 1949, with some films being released in Pakistan too.

Did you ever hear about films ‘Amar Asha’, ‘Angoorbala’, ‘Attention’, ‘Barrister’, ‘But Tarash’, ‘Chalte Chalte’, ‘Chandrahas’, ‘Daghabaaz Dost’, ‘Dehati’, ‘Ek Kadam’, ‘Gaurav’, ‘Giribala’, ‘Heera’, ‘Intezar Ke Baad’, ‘Jhalak’, ‘Jurmana’, ‘Khaufnak Aankhen’, ‘Lalaat’, ‘Mangalsutra’, ‘Moti’, ‘Sewagram’, ‘Stage Girl’, ‘Tohfa’ or ‘Utho Jaago’ ? Of course not all films were below standards. Some of the landmark films were also made in 1947, like ‘Shehnai’, ‘Mirza Sahiban’ and Parwana etc. However by and large the picture was like this only.

Today’s film ‘Dekho ji’ was also one such film. The producer/director,MDs, hero heroine and most actors of this film migrated to Pakistan, one after another in few years’ time. The film was made by The Punjab Film Corporation, Bombay. The Producer/ Director was Wali saheb. There were 2 MDs, namely Tufail Faruqui and Sabir Hussain There were 11 songs in the film but only few songs are available on YouTube. The cast consisted of Mumtaz Shanti, Anjum, A Shah, Haroon, Khatoon, Afzal, Dilshad, Mintobai, Gulnar etc.

When we talk of partition and migration of artistes from one country to another, only the famous and the well known names are taken. There were hundreds of small-time actors, directors, lyricists, composers, instrument players, chorus singers, technicians etc who were not known to many and also had migrated for various reasons. The other day I was reading a book, ‘Who’s Who: Music in Pakistan’ written by A Shaikh and M Shaikh. In this book I found several names of singers, composers, lyricists and above all instrument players, who shifted to Pakistan.

It is a well known fact that in olden times, the instrument players, chorus singers and orchestra players had personal attachments and preferences for particular composers and vice versa too. That is why when Ghulam Haider went back to Lahore after partition, he was extremely happy to meet some of his orchestra players in Lahore. In one of the interviews he had said that he felt like he was having a family reunion. He arranged a get together for all those people.

In the Hindi film industry, many partition immigrants came back to dominate and transform the scene here. Filmmakers like Sippy, BR Chopra, Yash Chopra, Ramanand Sagar-all India’s most successful commercial producers were also partition immigrants. Once heavily dominated by Muslim film makers, writers, actors and composers, the Hindi film industry changed drastically after the partition, only to again be dominated after 60-70 years !

Many successful film personalities had gone to Pakistan between 1947 and 1950, including producers like Mehboob, Kardar and Shaukat Hussain Rizvi – who went to Lahore with capital to buy the Hindu-owned studios. Prominent producers of Lahore like Dalsukh Pancholi and Roop K Shorey were forced to sell their studios and properties for a song and flee for their life to India after riots in Pakistan post partition. Some Muslim artistes returned to India after a few years when they realized that Lahore film industry had largely collapsed due to exodus of prominent Hindu producers.

The crucial role played by films in Indian culture could be seen in the refugee camps of Delhi where Hindi movies were shown for free for two hours every evening to all. ‘Film India’ magazine commented that there were more than 15,000 refugees from Sindh and Punjab in Bombay. It also suggested that good looking and educated women can be employed in films. Due to polarization, there was much inflammatory writing published in this magazine at that time.

However, as before and always Bombay film industry maintained its secular culture. A big rally, led by Durga Khote and Prithviraj Kapoor was taken out on 2-10-1947 in Bombay. The entire film industry had joined in it and slogans like ‘Hindu-Muslim bhai bhai’ etc were shouted in the rally. Similarly, to pacify over one lakh refugees from East Pakistan (now Bangaladesh) in Calcutta, film artistes had led a rally in Calcutta at the same time.

The famous Music Historian James McConnachie said, ”As India marched into an uncertain future – in 1947 – film songs offered something unique: they helped creating a sense of belonging to One Nation, something that the divisive extremist right wingers in India, chanting ”Hindustan for Hindus” could never achieve. When Hindi film singers sang, nobody cared that Mohd Rafi was a Muslim or Lata was a Hindu Brahmin. Its great music bridged the gap between Hindus and Muslims, much better than any Politician (including Gandhi and Nehru) ever could achieve.” -World Music-The Rough Guide,Vol II,pp 106,pub.1990 by Harper.

Like many top class composers who migrated to Pakistan, there were some small time or recently started composers who also left, like Inayat Hussain (only 1 Punjabi film ‘Kamli’), Fateh Ali Khan (2 films – ‘Aaina’ (1944) and ‘Director’ (1947), Tufail Farooqi (2 films – ‘Sona Chandi’ (1946) and ‘Dekho Jee’ (1947)). Inayat Hussain of course became a legend in Pakistan.

Today we will talk about TUFAIL FAROOQI.

Tufail was born in Taran Taaran, Amritsar, Punjab, on 10-7-1918. After taking musical lessons from Ustad Abdul Waheed Khan for several years, he joined AIR, Lahore. He also worked with many composers. Finally, he got his first film, ‘Sona Chaandi‘ in 1946. Out of 12 songs of the film, he composed 10 songs and 2 were composed by DC Dutt. In this film Tufail gave an opportunity to a young but promising newcomer, who was struggling to get established as a playback singer – Mohammed Rafi. Rafi got 4 songs in this film and he was overjoyed at this break.

Later Tufail gave music to his second film- ‘Dekho Jee’ (1947). Here too he composed 6 songs and the other 5 were composed by composer Sabir Hussain. Actually, Sabir Hussain was his assistant and just to encourage him, Tufail credited these songs to him.

After partition,Tufail migrated to Pakistan along with family, with Sabir Hussain in tow, but had to struggle hard there too. His first film was ‘Barkha’ in 1953. Tufail gave music to 37 films, mostly Punjabi films and less Urdu. His film, ‘Bahadur Kissan’ (1970) had a song – ”Mera Sona Des Kisaan Da”, sung by singer Masood Rana. This tune was a blatant direct copy of the song ”Ye Desh Hai Veer Jawaanon Ka” from ‘Naya Daur’ (1957). The Pakistani song became a tremendous hit, not only with the Punjab farmers but also was played on Radio and TV often.

Tufail Farooqi’s sister was Master Ghulam Haider’s first wife (Umrao Zia Begum was his second wife), from whom he had a son – Saleem Haider. Later Saleem joined Pakistan Army and rose upto the rank of Lt. General. He retired in 2000.

Tufail worked till early 80s. He married the famous Pak singer Pappu Pukhraj in 1953. He died in Lahore on 25-3-1988.

Another actor in the cast, who was quite a popular comedian those days was A Shah aka Aziz Shah. He was born in 1910, at Sialkot. He did not have much schooling, except primary education at Lyallpur and at Islamia High School, Lahore. Due to his rich and sweet voice, he used to recite Holy Quran, on farmaish. He wrote poetry also.

He joined Saroj Movietone in 1930, under Mohan Bhavnani as an artiste at Rs. 40 per month. He acted in ‘Shakuntala’ (1931) and ‘Gul Bakavli’ (1932). He had to take a 2 year break, due to an illness. Back in Bombay, he worked in the film ‘Fidai Tohid’ (1934) as a hero. He gave music to the film ‘Gunehgar’ (1936). He wrote dialogues for ‘Mother India’ (1938) and ‘Daughters of India’ (1939). His first comic role was in Ranjit’s ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1935). He became famous with his role in Punjabi film ‘Kurmai’ (1941).

His best role came in ‘Sharada’ (1942), as Munshi Udharchand Shikarpuri. This was repeated by him in the film ‘Keemat’ (1946). Some of his 11 films were, ‘Dhandora’ (1941), ‘Armaan’ (1942), ‘Sukh Dukh’ (1942), ‘Kanoon’ (1943), ‘Sanjog’ (1943), ‘Geet’ (1944) and ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’ (1945). After 1947, he stopped acting and wrote lyrics in films like ‘Raat Ki Rani’ (1949), ‘Namoona’ (1949) and ‘Ek Teri Nishani’ (1949). After this he migrated to Pakistan and we have no further information about him anymore. Baburao Patel of ‘Film India’ magazine was his fan.

We do not know who sang today’s song, since the HFGK does not mention name of the singer.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 154 # Year -1971#
———————————————–————————

Finally, the year ‘2021’ has become a past now and with that the ‘year 1971’ has become fifty years old too. That is how time flies.

We had been celebrating ‘fifty years’ of the year ‘1971’ and have looked on the movies released in 1971 in earlier posts given below.

In the above posts we have seen the details of movies released from January-April’1971, then May-August’1971 and finally the details of movies released from September-December’1971 respectively in these three posts.

The following movies from 1971 which do not have the details of ‘date of passing by censor board’ didn’t find a mention in above posts and so was the case for the movies ‘un-released’ (which are considered from this year 1971).

However, there is one movie ‘Bombay Talkie’ of which the ‘censor certificate date’ is mentioned in HFGK but it features in the list of movies unreleased.

Movie Title Director Music Director
Ek Naari Ek Brahmachaari KP Atma Shankar-Jaikishan
Hangaamaa SM Abbas RD Burman
Jai Jawaan Jai Makaan Vishram Bedekar Bhaskar M Chandavarkar

The above movies are those which have already been represented on the blog and some of them have been Yippeee’d too or covered with all the songs in the respective movies.

Three movies viz. ‘Agent 999’* (aka ‘C.I.D. Agent 999’*, ‘Operation Jackpot’), ‘Nanhi Kaliyaan’ and ‘Revolver Rani’ have yet to make a debut on the blog. As of now, the songs from these movies seem to be not available.

So, given below is the full list of the movies from 1971.

Out of the total 662 songs from the above movies so far, we have covered 412 songs on the blog.

(Note– more movies (from un-released) can get included in the year 1971 if their date of passing or releasing is noticed, and it is from this year 1971).

Today we listen a song from the movie ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ and say Yippeee to this movie on the blog.

Following is the details of the songs of this movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

 

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Lyricist Posted On
01 Hello, aap yahaan aaye kisliye Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar Neeraj 15.09.2010
02 Kisi ke dil ko sanam leke yoon nahin Sharda Hasrat Jaipuri 15.09.2020
03 Hum jab honge saatth saal ke Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar Shaily Shailendra
04 Dekhiye to kya ajeeb haal hai Manna Dey Neeraj 02.06.2021
05 Bhanware ki gunjan hai mera dil Kishore Kumar, chorus Hasrat Jaipuri 15.04.2019
06 Tik tik tik … chalti jaaye ghadi Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh Neeraj 12.09.2015

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar, and I consider this song as a well-known song, because it was frequently heard in those years. I vaguely remember, in my childhood days, seniors in the family would tease each-other by singing this song or remembering this song as an expression of loving each other longer.

The song is

ham jab honge ae saatth saal ke ae aur tum hogi pachpan ki
bolo preet nibhaaogi naa tab bhi apne bachpan ki

I was thinking to post this song on the new year day, considering that it would be suitable for those who reached their ‘sixties’ in this year and their spouses are of fifty-five years old. At least if not a ‘resolution type’ song, this song serves as a ‘promise to keep song’ for continuing to love each other even when both partners grow older and older, with the passing of each year. And particularly when they are of ‘sixty’ and ‘fifty-five’ respectively. (Now-a-days it can be vice versa also 🙂 )

This song also reminded me the qawwali “Badaa Lutf Thha Jab Kunwaare Thhe Hum Tumshared by me and posted on 02.01.2016 on the blog. This qawwali song is telling about the joy of youth and youthful days, or simply the joy of bachelorhood before getting married and the life after marriage.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip-synced by the beautiful Babita and Randhir Kapoor respectively.

With today’s song this movie ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ has all its songs covered on the blog and this movie now joins the ‘list of movies – all songs covered’. The movie started its journey on 15.09.2010 on the blog and ends it today.

Let us now enjoy today’s song

Song – Hum Jab Honge Saatth Saal Ke (Kal Aaj Aur Kal) (1971) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Shaily Shailendra, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

kya

hum jab honge ae
saatth saal ke ae
aur tum hogi pachpan ki
bolo preet nibhaaogi naa
tab bhi apne bachpan ki

kya kya
kya

(Coughing sound)

hum jab honge saatth saal ke
aur tum hogi pachpan ki
bolo preet nibhaaogi naa
tab bhi apne bachpan ki

hum jab honge saatth saal ke
aur tum hogi pachpan ki
bolo preet nibhaaogi naa
tab bhi apne bachpan ki

tum jab honge saatth saal ke
aur main hoongi pachpan ki
preet ki jyot jalaaungi main
tab bhi apne bachpan ki

haan baahon ka sahaara ho jab
lakdi kyon hum tekenge
aankh bhale dhundhli ho jaayen
dil ki nazar se dekhenge ae
haan baahon ka sahaara ho jab
lakdi kyon hum tekenge
aankh bhale dhundhli ho jaayen
dil ki nazar se dekhenge
aankhon mein tum yoonhi dekhna
aankhon mein tum yoonhi dekhna
kya hai zaroorat darpan ki
bolo preet nibhaaogi naa
tab bhi apne bachpan ki
tum jab honge saatth saal ke
aur main hoongi pachpan ki
preet ki jyot jalaaungi main
tab bhi apne bachpan ki

roop ki ye mastaani dhoop
ik din to dhal jaayegi
aur kismat bhi chehre pe ae
samay ka rang mal jaayegi
haan aa roop ki ye mastaani dhoop
ik din to dhal jaayegi
aur kismat bhi chehre pe ae
samay ka rang mal jaayegi
tum tab kahin badal naa jaana
tum tab kahin badal naa jaana
qasam tumhe is dhadkan ki
bolo preet nibhaaoge naa
tab bhi apne bachpan ki

haan aa thhandi mein tum
sweater bun’naa
hum lakdi chun laayenge
bachchon ke sang bachche ban kar
hum donon tutlaayenge

(Laughing sound in female voice)

haan aa thhandi mein tum
sweater bun’naa
hum lakdi chun laayenge
bachchon ke sang bachche ban kar
hum dono tutlaayenge
miljul kar hum saath rahenge
miljul kar hum saath rahenge
baat na hogi an-ban ki
bolo preet nibhaaogi naa
tab bhi apne bachpan ki ee

tum jab honge saatth saal ke
aur main hoongi pachpan ki
preet ki jyot jalaaungi main
tab bhi apne bachpan ki

huyi huyi huyi

hum jab honge saatth saal ke
aur tum hogi pachpan ki
bolo preet nibhaaogi naa
tab bhi apne bachpan ki

क्या

हम जब होंगे साठ साल के
और तुम होगी पचपन की
बोलो प्रीत निभाओगी ना
तब भी अपने बचपन की

क्या क्या
क्या

(खांसी का स्वर)

हम जब होंगे साठ साल के
और तुम होगी पचपन की
बोलो प्रीत निभाओगी ना
तब भी अपने बचपन की

हम जब होंगे साठ साल के
और तुम होगी पचपन की
बोलो प्रीत निभाओगी ना
तब भी अपने बचपन की

तुम जब होंगे साठ साल के
और मैं हूंगी पचपन की
प्रीत की ज्योत जलाऊंगी मैं
तब भी अपने बचपन की

हाँ बाहों का सहारा हो जब
लकड़ी क्यों हम टेकेंगे
आँख भले धुंधली हो जाये
दिल की नज़र से देखेंगे
हाँ बाहों का सहारा हो जब
लकड़ी क्यों हम टेकेंगे
आँख भले धुंधली हो जाये
दिल की नज़र से देखेंगे
आँखों में तुम यूंही देखना
आँखों में तुम यूंही देखना
क्या है ज़रूरत दर्पण की
बोलो प्रीत निभाओगी ना
तब भी अपने बचपन की
तुम जब होंगे साठ साल के
और मैं हूंगी पचपन की
प्रीत की ज्योत जलाऊंगी मैं
तब भी अपने बचपन की

रूप की ये मस्तानी धूप
इक दिन तो ढाल जाएगी
और किस्मत भी चेहरे पर
समय का रंग मल जाएगी
हाँ रूप की ये मस्तानी धूप
इक दिन तो ढाल जाएगी
और किस्मत भी चेहरे पर
समय का रंग मल जाएगी
तब तुम कहीं बादल ना जाना
कसम तुम्हें इस धड़कन की
बोलो प्रीत निभाओगे ना
तब भी अपने बचपन की

हाँ ठंडी में तुम स्वेटर बुनना
हम लकड़ी चुन लाएँगे
बच्चों के संग बच्चे बन कर
हम दोनों तुतलाएंगे
(हंसी का स्वर)
हाँ ठंडी में तुम स्वेटर बुनना
हम लकड़ी चुन लाएँगे
बच्चों के संग बच्चे बन कर
हम दोनों तुतलाएंगे
मिलजुल कर हम साथ रहेंगे
मिलजुल कर हम साथ रहेंगे
बात ना होगी अनबन की
बोलो प्रीत निभाओगी ना
तब भी अपने बचपन की

तुम जब होंगे साठ साल के
और मैं हूंगी पचपन की
प्रीत की ज्योत जलाऊंगी मैं
तब भी अपने बचपन की

हुई हुई हुई
हम जब होंगे साठ साल के
और तुम होगी पचपन की
बोलो प्रीत निभाओगी ना
तब भी अपने बचपन की

C Ramchandra – 40th remembrance day anniversary on 05/01/2022
—————————————————————————
Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 7
—————————————————-

Rafi sahab sang 80 + songs under C. Ramchandra, starting from 1946 to 1977 beginning with Bachchon ka Khel(1) and Safar(2) in 1946. This is followed by 6 songs in ‘Saajan’(1947), two each in “Khidki’ and ‘Nadiya ke Paar’ in 1948.

Two of the most melodious Solos, which made both Rafi sahab and C. Ramchandra , famous have seen the light of day by this time. ‘These are ‘keh ke bhi na aaye tum, ab chhupne lage taare’ in Safar 1946 and ‘ham ko tumhaara hi aasra tum hamaare ho na ho’ in Saajan 1947. Geeta Dutt, Lalita Deulkar and Shamshad Begum feature in group songs and duets with Rafi in all these films till 1949.

Then there is Duniya 1949 with Suraiyya, where Rafi sahab sings two duets and two solos.

‘Namoona’ 1949 has the first ever Rafi-Lata Duet (tadpa ke mujhe ab chhod diya ) under C. Ramchandra.

There are no more solos for Rafi Sahab, till ‘Insaaniyat’ 1955, where Rafi Sahab is part of 11 songs including 5 solos, out of total 17 songs in the film. The journey continued with films like Lutera 1955, ‘Nausherwan-e-adil’ in 1957, ‘Amar Deep’ in 1958, ‘Paigham’ in 1959 and ‘Sarhad’ in 1960. Here they both take a break from each other, I mean C. Ramchandra and Rafi Sahab, till 1970 where they work together for “Rootha na karo”. Lastly Rafi Sahab sings teams up with C. Ramchandra in 1977 for the film ‘Akbar Saleem Anarkali’ where he sings 3 duets with the south Indian legend P. Susheela.

The association seems inconsistent, with gaps in between, and appears inadequate. But by 1960 Rafi Sahab had made his name as the foremost playback singer and C. Ramchandra’s career was petering out. The fact that C. Ramchandra himself was a singer of repute, could have been one of the reasons for there being so less songs in the 50’s decade. While Rafi sahab was giving block buster musical scores for established and non-established composers through 50’s, C. Ramchandra was also making great music with films like ‘Anarkali’, Shabistaan, Albela, Azaad and Navrang etc.

The song I am presenting in this tribute post on remembrance day for C. Ramchandra is a duet song from the film ‘Saanwariya’ 1949. Lalita Deulekar is the co-singer in this song, which is written by P. L. Santoshi. I have counted 30+ songs written by P. L. Santoshi in the excel sheet of Rafi songs, between 1948 to 1968. With Lalita Deulkar, there are total 8 songs including 2 group songs.

Here is the total no. of songs to the credit of all three, composer, lyricist and co singer and the songs posted in the blog:

Artist Songs in blog Songs in HFM career
C Ramchandra(1942-1978) 556 110 movies(907)

Lalita Dewoolkar 34

The following 6 songs from Sanwariya (1949) are already posted in the blog:

Song Date of post
Preet kiye pachhtaayee re saanwariya 30 september 2012
Duaa dene waalon hamen do duaayen 2 October 2012
Jaani re hum jaani re 22 January 2013
Chale gaye angrez english gaana nahin achcha 5 May 2014
Oonchi neechi hai sadak ghoda jaaye na bhadak 29 July 2016
Bedard zamaane mein dekho…Duniya waalon dil khol hanso 20 December 2017

The present song in 7th out of ten songs in the film. Only audio link is available, but from the lyrics it appears to be a ‘holi’ song. Quite a spirited song with chorus and the chhed-chhad mode, which is usually the case with holi songs.

While writing down the lyrics, I had to take the help of head phones, as this is a very old song, almost 73 years old. The audio quality is sometimes very poor, and this song record is the same. But surprisingly or not so surprisingly, its Rafi sahab’s voice which is crystal clear and stands out as the humanely divine sound, in the portions he sings alone and along-with chorus also. He sounds more amazing in the last stanza ‘kahat kabir……’ part and the inevitable alaap in between.

If anyone present in that recording studio in 1948-49, is still alive today, surely could not have forgotten the sound of the echoing divinity of the singing voice, where it seems as if the primitive microphone in front of Rafi sahab is much too hungry to absorb his powerful voice. Or was the technique for echo in sound recording was in use back then?

I will hold this thought, till I find another amazing rendition by Rafi Sahab.

One song from this movie was posted on the blog on 02.01.2012 and since then the movie has completed its ‘ten-year’ run on the blog 😊 without adding a song to its tally.

Let us see the list of movies represented on the blog ten years back on 02.01.2012.

Here is the list.
