Blog Day :

4518 Post No. : 16075

Some regulars of the blog are more keen eyed than most people and they keep looking for important events taking place in the blog. One important event happened in the blog yesterday. I became aware of it mainly because some regulars pointed it out in our whatsapp group.

On this day in the afternoon, the blog silently registered its 14 millionth visitor. The blog began 12 years ago on 19 july 2008 and it took the blog 4517 days to reach this magic figure on 29 november 2020.

Here is a summary of all the million visitors that have taken place in the blog so far :-

Visitor number Date achieved Blog day number Days taken for the million hits Remarks
1 million 25 October 2010 829 829 Slowest one million @ 1206 visitors per day
2 millions 7 November 2011 1207 378 @2645 visitors per day
3 millions 7 April 2012 1359 152 Fastest one million @ 6579 visitors per day
4 millions 10 December 2012 1606 247 @ 4049 visitors per day
5 millions 29 October 2013 1929 323 @3096 visitors per day
6 millions 12 October 2014 2277 348 @2873 visitors per day
7 millions 4 July 2015 2542 265 @ 3773 visitors per day
8 millions 20 April 2016 2833 291 @ 3436 visitors per day
9 millions 24 February 2017 3143 310 @ 3226 visitors per day

12 millions 4 July 2019 4003 224 @ 4464 visitors per day
13 millions 8 February 2020 4222 219 @ 4566 visitors per day
14 millions 29 November 2020 4517 295 @ 3390 visitors per day

Overall rate of visitors till now is 3099 visitors per day.

The above table shows that the blog, despite dealing in a non populist topic in a non TRP seeking manner, still draws a regular stream of visitors. It certainly serves as a source of encouragement for us.

I remember that the blog used to have visitors in trickles (in double figures in a day) during its early days. It was on 16 august 2008 that the blog touched three figures in a day for the first time. It was on 23 january 2009 (189th day of the blog) when more than one thousand visitors visited the blog for the first time. 5 August 2009 saw more than 2000 visitors for the first time in a day. The blog has even seen over ten thousand visits in a day. Here are the details:-

Date Number of visitors Blog day Remarks
19 July 2008 4 1 Only four visitors on the first day. Only occasion of single digit visitors in a day
20 July 2008 12 2 First time the blog reached double figure of visitors on the second day of the blog
16 August 2008 253 29 First time the blog reached three figures of visitors in a day
23 January 2009 1145 189 First time the blog reached four figures of visitors in a day
29 August 2009 2071 407 First time the blog reached 2000 visitors in a day
15 July 2011 3060 1092 First time the blog reached 3000 visitors in a day
4 October 2011 4137 1173 First time the blog reached 4000 visitors in a day
7 October 2011 5379 1176 First time the blog reached 5000 visitors in a day
9 October 2011 6082 1178 First time the blog reached 6000 visitors in a day
10 October 2011 7561 1179 First time the blog reached 7000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 8000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 9000 visitors in a day
19 October 2011 10630 1188 First and only time the blog reached 10000 visitors in a day

It took the blog more than 1000 days before it could get 3000 plus visitors in a day. But then all of a sudden, the blog touched heights of 4000 plus, 5000 plus, 6000 plus, 7000 plus, 8000 plus , 9000 plus and 10000 plus visits in a day in the month of October 2011, all within 15 days !

All these figures are interesting figures and they have been achieved without making any conscious attempts. In fact, we are not even aware how and why these visitors find us. All we know from wordpress stats is that the blog gets hits from all around the globe. Indiais the major country where this blog gets viewed the most and USA comes second. Other major countries from where this blog gets viewed are UK, Pakistan, Malaysia, Canada, UAE, Mauritius, Australia, Sri Lanka, Singapore, South Africa etc.

All we can conclude from the above is that Hindi movie music, especially those created decades ago, enjoy good following all around the world among music lovers of Indian origin and sometimes even among non Indian origin persons. People who are looking for difficult to find songs are likely to find their way into the blog. Some of them, after stumbling upon the blog may decide to bookmark the blog for further reference.

It gives us encouragement to find that we are visited even by people who are themselves associated with HFM and they sometimes post messages in the blog or contact us as well.

The figures about visitors to the blog are in a way a reflection on the fact that the work being done in the blog for old HF songs is being noticed and appreciated. And this is just the reward that we, like most normal human beings seek. Such appreciation is just the tonic that keeps us motivated and make us do this work regularly without taking any breaks.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati”(1969). This song is sung by Rafi and Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Only the audio of the song is available as of now. This movie was produced by Surinder Kapoor and directed by Bhappi Sanie for Amar Chhaya Productions. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Babita, Kamini Kaushal, Om Prakash, Helen, Rajendra Nath, Laxmi Chhaya, Mumtaz Begum, Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Hari Shivdasani, Sudhir, Sulochana Latkar, Sujata, Snehlata, Jagadish Kamal, Maqbool, Devi Chand, Baba Benjamin, Shobha, Madan Kenny etc in it. So, my guess is that thd song was picturised on Shashi Kapoor and Babita. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 97
———————————————————————————–

‘Jab Se Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963’ is an eligible movie under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ today (30 november 2020) as one of its songs was posted on 30.11.2010.

Though one song of this movie was also posted on 18.11.2010, we missed the opportunity of discussing its song on that day ten years later. Our dear Prakash ji had already sent lyrics for two songs to cover these two occasions. Today gives us another opportunity of covering a song from this movie under the “Blog Ten Year Challenge” series.

Following six posts were published this day ten years ago on 30 november 2010:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Jhoome re kali bhanwraa ulajh gayaa kaanton mein Naukri-1954 All songs covered
Hamko hanste dekh zamaanaa jalta hai Ham Sab Chor Hain- 1956 All songs covered

Ye din din hain khushi ke Jabse Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963 03 songs posted
Hamse hoti muhabbat jo tumko Muhabbat Isko Kehte Hain-1965 All songs covered

Though the blog scored a ‘sixer’ on the last day of the month of that year 2010 it left ‘three balls’ without scoring a single run 😊 i.e. 27th, 28th & 29th November’2010 were the ‘dot’ days for the blog. Still it managed to hit a century with this ‘six’ on the last day of the month. Total score of posts of November’2010 is 105. (Things like this happen in Hindi movies or specially in ‘MKD’ movies 😊

Now, in the current month, the blog is still struggling at sixty-one posts till the time of writing of this post.

Let us just take a quick look at how the blog has so far been performing in the month of November in previous years since its ‘inception’;

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be presented on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle.

Let us enjoy today’s lovely nok jhonk song and close November’2020 on a happy note for the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ and move on to December …

If we look at the statistics of the month of November over the years, this will be the first November where number of posts cross fifties and do not not enter nineties. 😊 Out of twelve Novembers so far, seven have scored centuries, two closed in the forties, and three in nineties. This, the thirteenth November for the blog seems to be ending in the sixties today …

over to the song now …

Blog Day :

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#4)
————————————————————
#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
———————————————————–——
We have discussed ‘rail’ songs in our blog from time to time. Train and/or railways have always been my favorite subject and I always love to travel in trains whenever possible. I have many fond memories associated with my various journeys in narrow gauge, meter gauge and broad-gauge trains.

Other members of this blog also like to write about rail/train. Railways, there improvement, and possibility of high -speed trains to cover two long distance points in minimum time possible, is the favorite topic of many ‘Atulites’ and specially of Raja Saab.

And our leader Atul ji has also time to time discussed rail songs in his posts. It was couple of years back (or precisely in the month of May’2018) that there was some discussion about ‘railways and high-speed trains’ in the ‘Atulites WhatsApp’ group.

It started with Raja Saab expressing his wish for an overnight journey train between SBC-CSTM. He also mentioned that maybe he is a bit spoilt 😊 by high speed travels (by train) in Europe.

Well the discussion was a long one and I am not going to reproduced it all here. (Rather I will keep some points from it for another write-up in the future).

During the discussion Atul ji said that ‘as an insider (in railways)’ he can bring the various suggestions to the attention of the higher authorities or even through his posts on the blog he can throw light on many issues and can even take a series of articles connecting ‘rail/train’ issues if we can suggest him some good songs from Hindi movies.

As usually I am, being an over-enthusiastic person 😊, I search and send many songs to our editors. Atul ji had also wrote some good posts and presented some good songs. However, no song from the lot I sent was selected for a post (till now 😊).

Today I am presenting one of the songs from this lot.

So far, on the blog we have ninety-eight songs under ‘Rail songs’ and many of them are timeless classics like ‘zindagi ke safar mein guzar jaate hain jo makaam’ composed by R.D. Burman, ‘Gaadi bulaa rahi hai’ by Laxmikant-Pyarelal etc etc.

I think R.D. Burman composed many songs in this ‘genre’ and it would be interesting to know how many other lyricists and composers are involved in creating rail songs and who are the toppers.

But then, it again is the subject matter of another post (may be the next post in this ‘genre’ could be presented with these statistics with a rail song).

One of the other Pancham composed rail song that immediately comes to mind is ‘ham dono do premi duniya chhod chale’ from ‘Ajnabi-1974’ which was picturized with Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman on a ‘freight train’ jumping on ‘haystacks’. (Atul ji’s terminology) and I am specially mentioning this song now because
if we watch today’s song it immediately reminds us of the above song.

However, today’s song is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

And today 27th November 2020 is his sixty-eighth birth anniversary.

On this occasion wishing Bappi Lahiri a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead let us enjoy the today’s song picturized on Mithun Chakravarty and Ranjeeta, also seen is Shakti Kapoor in the picturization of this song.
(This song is also picturized on a ‘freight-train’ 😊)

‘Tarkeeb-1982’ was directed by Ravikant Nagaich for ‘Venus Combines, Madras’. Ravikant Nagaich also did the photography of this movie. It was produced by S. Krishnamurthy.

Story of this movie was written by Taarakaraamaa and dialogues of this movie were written by Ramesh Pant.
Editing of this movie was done by N.M. Shankar. It had Ranjeeta, Mithun Chakravarty, Shakti Kapoor, Rakesh Pande, Sharat Saxena, Paintal, Mukri, Beena, Parveen Pal, Naaz, Dinesh Hingoo, Leena Das, Dinesh Sharma, Kalpana Ayyer, Prem Bedi, Guddi, Madan Puri and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.11.1982.

This movie had six songs written by Anjaan and its music was composed by Bappi Lahiri. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, S. Janaki, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, S.P. Balasubramaniam and Bappi Lahiri have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie ‘Tarkeeb-1982’ makes its debut on the blog and so does Bappi Da makes a debut in the category of ‘rail songs’ (if I am not wrong 😊) on the blog.

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Their voices are lip synced by Mithun Chakraborty and Ranjeeta respectively.

Naa dar hai naa badnaami
Dil ne bhi bhar di haami
Phir kyun rahen door door
Kuchh boley ye tanhaayi
Dil thham thham le angdaayi
Donon nashe mein hain choor

Barson ke pyaase mil jaayen aise
Jaise zameen aasmaan
Haan
Ye chalti gaadi ee
Gaadi mein ham tum
Dono akele yahaan aa
Arey chhuk chhuk gaadi
Jab jab boley
dhak dhak doley
Dil mera aa

ये चलती गाडी ई
गाडी में हम तुम
दोनों अकेले यहाँ आ
तन मन में ये जो
शोले हैं दहके
ना आग है ना धुंआ आ

ए छुक छुक गाडी
जब जब बोले
धक् धक् डोले
दिल मेरा आ

अरे छुक छुक गाडी
जब जब बोले
धक् धक् डोले
दिल मेरा आ

ये चलती गाडी ई
गाडी में हम तुम
दोनों अकेले यहाँ

आँखों से हलकी हलकी
मस्ती ये छलकी छलकी
पागल ये प्यासी प्यासी रात
ये मौसम महका महका
ये साँसे दहकी दहकी
होठों पे बहकी बहकी बात

किस्मत से ऐसा आ
मौक़ा मिला है
फिर ऐसा मौक़ा कहाँ
तन मन में ये जो
शोले हैं दहके
ना आग है ना धुंआ आ

भई छुक छुक गाडी
जब जब बोले
धक् धक् डोले
दिल मेरा आ

कल तक तो थी दीवानी
करती थी मैं मनमानी
तुझसे ही मानी मैंने हार

किस्मत में थी तू मेरी
किस्मत में था मैं तेरी
होना था तेरा मेरा प्यार
जिस दिन से तेरी बाहों में आई
भूली मैं दोनों जहां

ये चलती गाडी ई
गाडी में हम तुम
दोनों अकेले यहाँ
अरे छुक छुक गाडी
जब जब बोले
हे धक् धक् डोले
दिल मेरा आ

हे छुक छुक गाडी
जब जब बोले
हे धक् धक् डोले
दिल मेरा आ

ना डर है ना बदनामी
दिल ने भी भर दी हामी
फिर क्यूँ रहें दूर दूर
कुछ बोले ये तन्हाई
दिल थम थम ले अंगडाई
दोनों नशे में हैं चूर

बरसों के प्यासे मिल जाएँ ऐसे
जैसे ज़मीन आसमान
हाँ
ये चलती गाडी ई
गाडी में हम तुम
दोनों अकेले यहाँ आ
अरे छुक छुक गाडी
जब जब बोले
धक् धक् डोले
दिल मेरा आ

Blog Day :

4511 Post No. : 16060

Today (23 november 2020) is the 90th birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt (23 November 1930- 20 July 1972). I was aware of this fact yesterday itself, seeing that I had received several contributions for the occasion. Moreover, this date, which happens to be a monday, is also a day when I present my weekly series of Lata Mangeshkar songs sung in a particular calender year- a very research heavy project. So, my hands were full on sunday (22 november) preparing for all these articles to be published on 23 november 2020.

By late night on 22 november 2020, I had four articles ready, one for Lata Mangeshkar and three for Geeta Dutt, to be published on the morning of 23 november 2020. I had plans to post another article on Geeta Dutt (this one), as that article was going to be a special article on the occasion of Geeta Dutt’s birth anniversary.

I was not the only one who was busy on sunday. It turns out that our own Gajendra Khanna was also busy. A big Geeta Dutt fan and the administrator of Geeta Dutt site geetadutt.com, Gajendra Khanna had prepared a one hour long programme on the occasion and had left a link of the programme on our whatsapp group. I listened to this programme in the morning. As is his wont, Gajendra Khanna’s programme was extremely well researched and contained new, eye opening informations. It was through this programme that I realised that Geeta Dutt (nee Roy) had not made her debut in Hindi movies in 1946, but it was in 1945 in “Aadhaar”(1945). HFGK contains very sketchy information on this movie and mentions name of movie characters as singers. “Aadhaar” (1945) is her first Hindi movie as a playback singer. I notice that a song Aayi balloon waali aayi re in Geeta Dutt’s voice (alongwith S N Tripathi) is actually posted in the blog with correct attribution. That was thanks to information provide by geetadutt.com, ofcourse. HFGK mentions this song as sung by Shehzaadi. Shehzaadi could well be the name of the character who lip syncs this song in the movie.

This programme also contains some other interesting information about Geeta Dutt. For instance, she has sung over 90 songs in Gujarati. She has also sung in Bangla (her mother tongue), Marathi, Punjabi etc. What is very special is the fact that she sounds a natural in all these languages. For instance, Gajendra Khanna finds her Punjabi diction impeccable in her Punjabi language song that he played in his programme.

It is unfortunate that her married life turned out to be disastrous and such a god given singing talent like hers, that should have blossomed, instead got withered and finally got cut short prematurely, because of the after effects of her unhappy marriage with Guru Dutt.

Despite all the circumstances that impeded her after her marriage, Geeta Dutt has still left us with more than a thousand songs to savour. The blog has 899 songs so far and this article is being written to mark the 900th song of Geeta Dutt in the blog. I was wondering what song to showcase as her 900th song in the blog. Most of her well known songs, including iconic songs are already showcased in the blog. Many of the songs not yet covered either did not fit the bill, or their audio quality was not upto the mark, or the genre of the song did not suit the occasion.

I covered a song that I thought was a nice discovery. But a few hours later it was pointed out that the song was already covered in the past.

So it was back to the drawing board.

Now I have picked another special song. This song is from an obscure movie called “Putli”(1950). “Putli”(1950) was produced and directed by Wali Sahab for Punjab Film Corporation, Bombay. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti ,Pran, Yaqoob, Husn Banu, Srinath, Majnu, Prem Dhawan, Ramesh Thakur, Sheela Naik etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. HFGK mentions singers only for three songs. The singers mentioned for these songs are Meena Kapoor for all three songs and a male voice in one of these three songs. There is no mention of singers for remaining eight songs.

What is special about this song is that HFGK is silent about the singers of this song. On listening to the song, it is clear that the song contains the voices of Geeta Dutt and Shamshad Begam. So this song is a “new” discovery as a Geeta Dutt song as well as a Shamshad Begam song.

Uploader of the audio of the song mentions Harikrishn as the lyricist and Aziz Hindi as the music director. While the music director matches with the entry of HFGK, the lyricist does not as HFGK is silent about the lyricist. HFGK Wali Sahab and Abid Gulrej are mentioned as the two lyricists. I think that the uploader of this song has more information about this song as he may have taken this information from the record label.

With this song, Geeta Dutt now has exactly 900 songs in the blog as a playback singer. It is befitting that she should reach this mark on the occasion of her 90th birth anniversary today. What a delightful song to bring up this occasion.

As a great coincidence, this song is the 700th song for Shamshad Begam in the blog and she too completes her century with this song.

PS-Sadanand Kamath Jee has located the video of the song. He identifies the two female dancers as Sheela Naik (lip syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice) and Cuckkoo (lip syncing in Shamshad Begam’s voice).

Blog Day :

kuchh aur zamaana kehta hai kuchh aur hai zidd mere dil ki
main baat zamaane ki maanoon ya baat sunoon apne dil ki

This was the swan song from ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ (1965) both for the singer and the music director of the song as this was their last film in Mumbai before shifting lock stock and barrel to Delhi in 1963. The playback singer was Meena Kapoor and the music director was Anil Biswas. In relation to her romantic affairs with Anil Biswas in the early 1950s, just like in the above two-liner, she was in a quandary. But her heart was adamant (aur hai zidd mere dil ki) that led to a long partnership with Anil Biswas irrespective of what the society said about their relationship.

Today, November 23rd is the 3rd Remembrance Day of Meena Kapoor. The day also happens to be 90th birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt. Both were born in the year 1930 in Bengal Presidency of British India. Both started their playback singing career in Mumbai in the year 1946 – Geeta Dutt with ‘Bhakt Prahlad’ (1946) and Meena Kapoor with ‘Pul’ (1947) in 1946 though her first released song was from ‘Eight Days’ (1946). The similarities do not end here.

Both Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor got recognition as playback singers under S D Burman – Meena Kapoor in ‘Aath Din’ (1946) and Geeta Dutt in ‘Do Bhai’ (1947). Both virtually ended their playback singing career around mid-1960s though there were few spill-over of their songs thereafter. Both had almost similar vocal cords giving an impression to the listeners that their singing voices sound more or less the same. And what was more important was that despite being in the competitive field of playback singing career, both were close friends to such an extent that they both became a part of extended family of Roys and Kapoors.

Unfortunately, their similarities of Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor did not reflect in their playback singing career. During their active years (1946-65) of playback singing career, Meena Kapoor’s output (around 175 songs) has no match with that of Geeta Dutt (around 1400 songs). Out of curiosity, I checked the year-wise growth of the playback singing career of both of them beginning with the year 1946 and up to 1955, the year from which Meena Kapoor had Anil Biswas as his life partner, almost retiring from her playback singing career except singing mainly for Anil Biswas. The statistics given in the table below reveal that Geeta Dutt was quite ahead of Meena Kapoor for all the years – both in terms of aggregate number of songs as well as films.

[Source: List of songs of Geeta Dutt from http://www.geetadutt.com counter-checked with http://www.myswar.co and list of songs of Meena Kapoor from http://www.myswar.co]

What could be the reasons for such a significant difference in their output of songs? At the outset, I could not see any reason other than ascribing it to a pure bad luck for Meena Kapoor in the sense that she was born with a voice almost similar to Geeta Dutt. And it was Geeta Dutt’s voice which seems to have been preferred by most of the music directors over that of Meena Kapoor.

In Lata Khubchandani’s article reproduced in RMIM’s Article Archive (No.324), Meena Kapoor had said that she had never been ambitious and she had not taken her music seriously. She also did not make any effort towards furtherance of her playback singing career. Her father, Bikram Kapoor who was a character actor in New Theatre, Kolkata and later in Mumbai, wanted his daughter to excel in singing only after completing her education. When she started living with Anil Biswas sometime in mid-1950s, she was happier as a housewife than pursuing the playback singing profession.

There is an interesting trivia as to how Meena Kapoor met Anil Biswas for the first time. In the interview referred to above, she had revealed that she refused to give audition to Anil Biswas when he was planning to get some songs sung by her for ‘Anokha Pyaar’ (1948) under the recommendation from his brother-in-law, Pandit Pannalal Ghosh. She had already recorded many film songs under many composers. As such, she felt that it was not necessary to her to give a fresh audition to Anil Biswas. It was her father who took a few recorded songs of her to Anil Biswas. After listening to her song, tod gaye haaye tod gaye armaan bhara dil tod gaye from ‘Khel’ (1950) under the music direction of Sajjad Hussain, Anil Biswas called her for rehearsal without audition. This incidence also shows as to how casual Meena Kapoor was in regard to her playback singing career.

Geeta Dutt on the other hand was interested in pursuing the playback singing career in films and her parents encouraged her by arranging music teachers. It was exactly at a time when Meena Kapoor’s restrictive playback singing career due to her education gave opportunity for Geeta Dutt to get a strong foothold as a playback singer as the statistics in the above table reveal. For example, S D Burman after giving two songs to Meena Kapoor in ‘Aath Din’ (1946), he switched over to Geeta Dutt during 1948-55 beside Lata Mangeshkar. It was only after 1957 when Geeta Dutt could not give sufficient time to S D Burman for rehearsals, he switched over to Asha Bhosle (Lata Mangeshkar not singing for him due to some misunderstanding). It is interesting to note that after her marriage with Guru Dutt in 1953, the yearly aggregate number of songs sung by Geeta Dutt post-1953 have fallen mainly due to a stiff competition from Lata Mangeshkar coupled with her domestic compulsion.

Both Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor have emotional tone in their voices which suits the genre of poignant and devotional songs. However, going by a large number of songs sung by Geeta Dutt relative to that of Meena Kapoor, the former’s versatilities are evident to general listeners of her songs. Just note as to how S D Burman had been instrumental in making Geeta Dutt a versatile singer. From emotional mera sundar sapna beet gaya in ‘Do Bhai’ (1947) to light-hearted tadbeer se bigdi huyi taqdeer bana le in ‘Baazi’ (1951), to coquettish song, jaane kya toone kahi jaane kya maine suni, teasing song, janoon jaanoon re chhupke kaun aaya in ‘Insaan Jaag Utha’ (1959) and many of her club songs. Her repertoire of songs under other music directors is also large.

Meena Kapoor did not get much opportunities to display her versatilities as her singing output was less than 200 songs as compared to Geeta Dutt’s around 1400 songs. But Meena Kapoor had also a good repertoire of songs like waltz type song, aate hain wo aate hain wo in ‘Chalte Chalte’ (1947), light-hearted meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday in ‘Shehnaai’ (1947), romance in ye samaa ham tum jawaan in ‘Maashooka’ (1953), folk song, rimjhim barse paani aaj more angna in ‘Pardesi’ (1957), Rabindra sangeet, mere chanchal naina madhur ras ke bhare in ‘Angoolimal’ (1960) etc.

With almost similar voice timbre, Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor had very few occasions to sing together during their active years of playback singing career as detailed below:

Films Songs (Geeta-Meena) Co-singers Music Director
Hip Hip Hurray (1948) Main jaan gayi jaan gayi Hanuman Prasad
Aadhi Raat (1950) Maine baalam se poochha Hansraj Bahl
Jalte Deep (1950) Aayi milne ki raat Shardul Kwatra
Hulchul (1951) Mile dil aankh sharmaayi Mohd. Shafi
Ghaayal (1951) O rani mainwati -1 G M Durrani Gyan Dutt
Ghaayal (1951) O rani mainwati -2 G M Durrani Gyan Dutt
Ghaayal (1951) Tera kisi pe aaye dil Gyan Dutt

Before I conclude my article, I would like to give links of a solo song each of Meena Kapoor and Geeta Dutt for the purpose of their voice comparison. I have deliberately selected the songs of the same genre (Meera bhajans) so that the comparison is on the even keel.

Meena Kapoor main birhan baithi jaagoon ‘Gopinath’ (1948)
Geeta Dutt ae ri main to prem deewaani ‘Jogan’ (1950)

After repeatedly listening to these two songs, I can feel some differences in voices but I am unable to explain as to what are the differences. Probably, Meena Kapoor sounds slight nasal in her singing than Geeta Dutt. Of course, musicologists like the late Ashok Ranade would have technically explained their voice differences.

On the occasion of the 90th birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt and 3rd Remembrance Day of Meena Kapoor on November 23, 2020, I am presenting their duet song, aayi milne ki raat karo meethi meethi baat from an obscure film ‘Jalte Deep’ (1950). The song is written by Aziz Kashmiri which is set to music by Shardul Kwatra. The film was produced by R Vasudeva under the banner of Nihal Film Corporation and was directed by Deepak Asha. The star cast included Nimmi, Amarnath, Randhir, Sophia, Deepak, Kuldeep, Leela Mishra etc. The film had 12 songs of which one song has been covered in the Blog.

The voices of Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor are so similar that I get a feeling whether the song I am presenting is solo or duet. However, the lyrics do give an impression of a duet and HFGK mentions Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor as playback singers for the song.

Since the film’s VCD/DVD is not available, one can listen to the song only on the audio clip. I have a photograph from the film in which Nimmi and Sophia are seen holding a tray each with lamps. Based on the photograph, my guess is that the song may have been picturised on Nimmi and Sophia welcoming their ‘balam’ and ‘sajan’.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 113 # Debutant movie – Neelima-1975
——————————————

‘Neelima-1975’ is making its debut on the blog today. Music for this movie is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. So, we are adding one more Shankar Jaikishan movie on the blog today.

I do not know from where I got it into my mind, but whenever I went through HFGK Vol-V and came across this movie name ‘Neelima-1975’ I had an impression that this movie must have already been covered on the blog. But now it is clear that this movie is yet to be launched on the blog.

‘Neelimaa-1975’ was directed by Pushpa Raj for ‘A.A.N. Productions, Bombay’. It had Zaheeda, Vinod Mehra, Sonia Sahni, Ranjeet, Anjali Kadam, Shahzaad, Nazeer Kashmiri, Rafia Sultana, Sahay, Aarif, Sami, Asgar, Qaiser and others. Anwar Hussain, Suresh, and Sunil Dutt make a special guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.09.1975.

This movie had total three songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan as per details given below;

Song Lyricist
Hamaara yaar hai, ham hai, muhabbat hai , jawaani hai Majrooh Sultanpuri
Tum agar pyaar se dekho to mazaa aa jaaye Anjum Jaipuri
Tu jo kahe ban jaaoongi main wahi, mujhme sanam kya nahin Majrooh Sultanpuri

Today’s song is a duet song in the voices of Mohd Rafi and Aarti Mukherjee. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri (I think I am first time coming across this combination, or maybe I had come a song by them but now I am not remembering it).

Music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Only the audio of this song is available. I think that this movie ‘Neelima-1975’ must be an obscure and forgotten movie.

I would request knowledgeable readers and those who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs and their picturization. (though video of one song ‘tu jo kahe ban jaaoongi’ is available on internet.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song … after listening to the song it sounds familiar and maybe I have heard it on radio earlier. I hope readers will enjoy the song too. 😊

With this song the movie ‘Neelimaa-1975’ makes its debut on the blog.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Kaise Kahoon-1945.

To start with, Bombay was the first film making centre followed closely by Calcutta. Slowly, some other centres like Madras, Coimbatore, Poona, Bangalore etc. as occasional film centres also developed. In 1924,i.e. 11 years after the first silent feature film was released in Bombay, Lahore made its first silent film-“The daughters of Today”. It was made and released in Lahore. This film was made by Mr. G K Mehta, a former officer of North Western Railways, who had imported a Camera from London. A R Kardar, who was making posters for foreign film productions and who was a qualified well known Calligrapher, assisted Mehta. Kardar and his friend Ismail both also acted in that film.

In 1928, Kardar, with no other work on hand, decided to start a film making studio and a production company called ” United Players Corporation” to make films. He made 12 silent films in Lahore, thus bringing Lahore’s name on the map of film centres in India. Therefore, Kardar can be called the architect of Lahore film industry, in a sense. Slowly Talkie films were planned in Lahore. Dalsukh Pancholiestablished his studio. The making of films like Khazanchi, Khandan and Zamindar firmly established Lahore as a Film making centre. Many films like Poonji, Daasi etc were made there. Punjabi aspirants in various fields like acting, direction, music, singing, cinematography etc found Lahore convenient to start careers, rather than going to Bombay all the way.

Film Kaise Kahoon – 45 was made by Pancholi Art Studio, Lahore which had earned All India fame with its highly successful films. As per Baburao Patel’s review in Film India magazine January 1945, the film’s story was by Dalsukh pancholi himself. He had also written the story for another hit film Daasi-44 earlier. Patel said in his review that ” Pancholi stole ideas from foreign films “. Whether True or not, the treatment Pancholi’s films gave to the stories was certainly loved by the audience all over India, so there was no problem. The film was directed by foreign trained Moti B Gidwani, who directed 17 films in his career. It is interesting to know, however, that his first film as a director, ” Midnight Girl -29″ was a resounding flop and it caused the film maker company- Maharashtra Film company of Kolhapur to close down. It also caused a group of 5 people to leave the company earlier and start their own Prabhat Film Company, at Kolhapur.

Cast of the film was Ragini, Najmul Hasan, Akhtar, Jagirdar, Durga Mota etc. Ragini was famous and popular. She was one of the two actresses of Hindi films, who had Brown eyes, the other being Vanmala. The hero Najmul Hasan was a compromise actor, who had become infamous due to his elopement with Devika Rani of Bombay Talkies. She returned to her husband and he was left high and dry ! Baburao Patel described him as ” an overfed Owl ” !

One name in the cast is that of Durga Mota. His real name was Durgaprasad. Due to his heavy build he was nicknamed Mota(fat). He was a permanent member of Pancholi films as a comedian. It is very sad that his career ended in a gruesome way. In 1947, after Partition, there was an exodus of millions from Lahore to India. Durgaprasad also wanted to shift to Delhi. He went to Lahore station to catch the train. Suddenly, a frenzied mob of rioters invaded Lahore station and they started killing all the passengers waiting to go to India. People started running to save life. Due to his fatness, Durgaprasad could not move faster and was caught by the mob, who cut him in pieces on the Lahore Railway station platform itself.

The film was released on 16-11-45 ( 75 years ago to the date, almost), in Imperial Cinema, Bombay. The story of the film, as adapted from the Film India magazine review by our Sadanand kamath ji, was – A doctor (Gajanan Jagirdar) has a son and two grown up daughters – Geeta (Ragini) and Basanti (Baby Akhtar). The son who was in Burma is expected to return home, However, he is accidentally killed by Pradeep (Najam ul Hasan) without knowing the identity of the deceased. As it often happens in Hindi films, coincidentally, Pradeep lands in a doctor’s house for an overnight stay. He falls in love with Geeta instantaneously. The overnight guest becomes a permanent attachment. Basanti, the younger sister of Geeta, is also happy about her sister’s love for Pradeep.

As usual in Hindi films, when the love reaches a finale, a villain, a zamindar (probably Ajmal) steps in the picture. He comes to know about the accidental death of the doctor’s son and the killer who is none other than Pradeep. After a lot of suspicions and misunderstanding, the things get cleared and Pradeep gets his fiancee Geeta.

The music of film kaise Kahoon-45 was by a veteran Pt. Amarnath Batish. I am purposely calling him Batish, because there was another MD with the same name of Pt. Amarnath Chawla. They were obviously different, but were a case of ” Same Name Confusion” because both never wrote their full names. In this matter Marathi actresses never became a case of SNC, because they all used their surnames, like Shanta Apte and Shanta Hublikar, Nalini Tarkhad and Nalini Jaywant, Leela Chitnis and Leela Chandragiri etc. etc. This made matters clear and easy to identify.

In 1931 the first Talkie film was released. There were seven songs in this film. With this film, along with the existing Film Industry an additional Music Industry also came into existence. The early film makers understood the importance of music in India. Music, Instrumental or Vocal had secured the Royal Patronage from the kings and Nawabs. For the common people Gramophone records were providing musical entertainment. Occasional open air dramas and music concerts too were popular. By the 30’s decade the NFS (Non Film Songs) became a craze and several popular singers churned out their records.

Music became an integral part of Hindi films. Famous filmmakers like Prabhat, Ranjit, New Theatres, Madon Theatres, Bombay Talkies, Saraswati Cinetone etc. also helped in promoting film music. Initially Film music was greatly influenced by Parsi Theatre, and Marathi and Gujarati Natya Geets as well as Folk songs. This was successfully changed by Ghulam Haider with Punjabi Music in Lahore and Naushad with UP folk music in Bombay. Pt. Amarnath and his younger brother pair of Husnlal-Bhagatram carried forward the Punjabi music.

Amarnath Batish was born in 1912 in Jalandhar. He started his career as an actor and singer on stage dramas. He was a good Harmonium and Tabla player. He started his career with HMV as an Orchestra Director, in Delhi. Master Madan, the child Prodigy recorded few Punjabi songs under his baton.

It was natural that Amarnath joined Films. His first film was Roop K Shorey’s Nishani-1942. Pandit ji had discovered Naseem Akhtar. She and Shamshad begum sang songs for him. In the same year, his first Punjabi film Govandi-42 was released. His new find Zeenat Begum sang in it. Even Amarnath sang a song ” Pagadi utaar jatta” along with S D Batish and chorus in it. However, the British government banned this Patriotic song. The film was a hit film. Film Daasi-44 was his most popular film. All songs became hits. He did a film Irada-44, in Calcutta in which he introduced Hemant Kumar in Hindi films.

Simultaneously, he was giving music to Punjabi films too like Koel-44 and Gul Baloch-45.During the 40s decade Pt. Amarnath was the most busy composer, with a line up like- Nishani-42, Paapi-43, Irada-44, Daasi-44, Panchhi-44, Shirin Farhad-45, Ragini-45, Kaise Kahoon-45, Dhamkee-45, Sham Savera-46, Shalimar-46, Shehar se door-46, Jhumke-46, Aai Bahar-46, pagdandi-47, Mirza Saheban-47, Roop Rekha-48 and Ek Teri Nishani-49.

He gave music to 18 Hindi films, composing 152 songs in all. Due to his success, he started taking drinks, which became his nemesis. At the time of film Pagdandi-47, after a few songs, he was replaced by Khurshid Anwar. Even in his last two films Roop Rekha-48 and Ek teri nishani-49 after a few songs, he was replaced by other MDs. Film Patjhad, which he had signed, was given to Ghulam Haider.

During the making of the film Mirza Sahiban-47, Pt. Amarnath died at the age of just 35 years, on 20-2-1947. The balance songs were done by Husnlal Bhagatram.

(Adapted with thanks, from Film Sangeetkar by Prof. Yadav, an article by Sharad Dutt in milleniumpost.in, Dhunon ki yatra by P.Raag, HFGK, muVyz and my notes).

So far, 2 songs of this film were discussed. Today’s song is the third song here. I would say, songs of this film do not conform to the fame of Pt. Amarnath for giving melodious songs. But then, every song of every film can not be of the same quality.

I am not well-informed about Hindi films of 1980s and beyond, except about those that I have watched in the theatres or on Video sharing platforms. Between the late 1960s and early 1970s, I used to watch almost one film every week either on Saturdays or Sundays. My ‘over-exposure’ to films, mostly masala films, during this period created an aversion in me that discuraged me from watch theese films in the later years. Probably the theory of diminishing marginal utility was being applied to me. Over a period of time, my quota of watching films came down from once a week to 2-3 films a year which is still in force. Because of this, I have missed many entertaining and a few quality films released especially in 80s and 90s.

It may sound strange but until yesterday, I was not aware that there was a film titled ‘Swati’ (1986). I do not recall having heard about this film from any one of my relatives and friends who have interest in Hindi films. What attracted me to know more about this film was that first, it was a film from a well-known banner, Prasad Productions. Secondly, its ensemble of star cast included Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Meenakshi Seshadri, Madhuri Dixit, Vinod Mehra, Sarika, Akbar Khan among others. I was not aware that Meenakshi Seshadri and Madhuri Dixit had worked together in a film. I came to know later that both of them had earlier worked together in ‘Aawaara Baap’ (1985).

From the synopsis of the film’s story, it appeared that Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore worked in this film in the role of an elderly couple. The combination of the actors under a well-known film production banner motivated me to watch the film, the DVD of which was available on-line. The film was a remake of a Telugu film of the same title which was released in 1984 and became the box office hit. The film was also remade in Kannada as ‘Usha’ (1986). The story of the film is as under:

Dr. Rajendra (Shashi Kapoor) is a doctor who runs a nursing home. Sharda (Sharmila Tagore) works as a nurse with Rajendra. An event in her life has happened which has forced her to live a life in anonymity and as a single mother (I will not go into the details). She has a grown up daughter, Swati (Meenakshi Seshadri). She is under the impression that her father has deserted her mother which had made her a feminist and outspoken. She hates hypocrisies and prejudices which dominate our society.

During one of her argumentative encounters with a group of males, Swati meets Ram Mohan (Akbar Khan) who is associated with some leftist group and always seen with writing slogans on the walls. After the initial hate relations with Ram Mohan, Swati falls in love with him. Dr. Rajendra has been a widower with a grown-up daughter, Anandi (Madhuri Dixit), a tomboyish type girl. She is in love with Kapil (Raja Bundela) simply because her idol is cricketer, Kapil Dev. She is also fond of asking her father as well Kapil puzzles to solve.

Swati thinks that after her marriage with Ram Mohan, her mother will be left alone. She needs a companion. Swati knows that her mother and Dr Rajendra like each other but due to societal constraints, both can not think of upgrading their fondness into a life partnership. Swati persuades her mother and Dr Rajendra to get married. His daughter, Anandi is happy that she would get a mother. The marriage takes place and Swati and her mother shift to Dr. Rajendra’s house. Things are now well settled. Both Swati and Anandi gel very well too. Anandi’s marriage with Kapil is also fixed.

One day, Swati finds an old man lying on the road unconscious. She takes him to Dr. Rajendra’s nursing home. The patient come into consciousness and tells his life story to Swati. It becomes apparent that he is Satya Prakash, Sharda’s fiancé and Swati’s real father. If the real story comes into light, it may affect the marriage of Anandi with Kapil. It is also likely to affect the relations of Rajendra and Sharda. But Swati steers the unforeseen problem taking into the confidence Rajendra after revealing him the real story and taking a promise from him that he would not reveal his patient’s identity to her mother. Satya Prakash knows that he has no chance of survival. His wish is to see Sharda for the last time.

On the day of marriage of Anandi with Kapil, Both Rajendra and Swati arrange to bring Satya Prakash to the marriage venue. He gets to see Sharda during the marriage ceremony from a balcony. After the kanyadan ceremony is over, Satya Prakash is happy to see Sharda. With happiness displayed over his face, Satya Prakash dies.

I found the film in keeping with tradition of Prasad Productions which is known for producing films in the genre of family drama. In the standard of 1980s, the story of the film is bold and broad-minded. From the title of the film, it is apparent that it is Meenakshi Seshadri’s film. I have not seen any film of Meenakshi Seshadri. So, it is the first time I am watching her performance in this film which is outstanding. She has displayed all the moods of her character in the film – from a hard-core feminist, a kind hearted daughter for her mother as well for those affected by the prejudice towards them in the society. Her best scene is the poignant moments in the film when she has to solve the issues arising out of a sudden appearance of real father. Madhuri Dikshit as a step sister of Meenakshi Seshadri has a light comical role which she performs very well. She has a lively presence in the film. Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore in the role of elderly couple look elegant. Dialogues by Rahi Masoom Reza is catchy.

Despite having good share of melodramatic contents, the film is not a tear-jerker. I found the film absorbing.

‘Swati’ (1986) had 5 songs none of which has been represented in the Blog. I present the first song from the film ‘shaadi mubaarak bole shehnaayi’ to appear on the Blog. The song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal and Alka Yagnik. The words are that of Anand Bakshi which are set to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. It is a marriage song picturised on Meenakshi Seshadri and Madhuri Dixit on the occasion of the marriage of their parents Sharmila Tagore and Shashi Kapoor.

With this, ’Swati’ (1986) makes its debut on the Blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 111 # Debutant movie-Saazish-1975
——————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1975 movie ‘Saazish’.

This movie is making its debut on our blog. It is part of one of my ‘projects’ of bringing ‘movies with same title’ on the blog. We already have a movie with this title released in ‘1959’ represented on the blog. (Incidentally this movie was also launched on the blog with a lyrics contribution sent by me then 😊) (isme meri koi saazish nahin thhi 😊)

There are were two more movies with the same title ‘Saazish’ made in 1988 & 1998, not yet represented in the blog.

‘Saazish-1975’ was directed by Kalidas for ‘Maya Movietone, Bombay’. Kalidas was also the producer of this movie. It had Saira Banu, Dharmendra, Dev Kumar, Rajendra Nath, Madan Puri, Jagdish Raj, Murad, Gayjee, David, Helen etc. Iftekhar and Paintal make special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Ranjan Bose. And screenplay and dialogues were written by Ramesh Pant. Editing of this movie was done by Waman Bhonsle and Guru Dutt Shirali.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.02.1975.

‘Saazish-1975’ has five songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Here are the details of the songs of this movie in order of their appearance (which should be according to the appearing of these songs in the movie) HFGK Vol-V 1971-1980.

Song Singer/s
Na taaj chaahiye na takht chaahiye, tera pyaar chaahiye har waqt chaahiye Asha Bhonsle
Wo bade khushnaseeb hote hain aap jiske kareeb hote hain Mahendra Kapoor, Suman Kalyanpur
Haay phir zaraa zaraa koi teer sa chubha, dil to huaa fidaa Sharda
Tujhe hamne chaaha apna samajh kar Mahendra Kapoor, Saira Banu
How sweet dada ji Asha Bhonsle, Ranu Mukherjee

As I mentioned above, this movie was in my ‘wish-list’ for the ‘project’ of introducing ‘movies with same titles’ on the blog. However, somehow, I had forgotten about this movie due to my attention to other posts. Our dear Prakash ji had also recently sent two songs from this movie for different occasions. But I am leaving them for future posts, because I was looking for a Suman Kalyanpur song composed by Shankar-Jaikishan (for obvious reasons -😊- regulars on the blog and those interested in statistics can guess it easily 😊).

So, today I am presenting a song from this movie sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Suman Kalyanpur.

This song is picturized on Dharmendra and Saira Banu (at foreign locations I guess) where Dharmendra is lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice and Saira Banu is lip syncing in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur (obviously 😊).

I have not watched this movie and would like to request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie, its details and its song please.

With the today’s song ‘Saazish-1975’ makes its debut on the blog … (😊 ye zaroor meri saazish ka hissaa hai 😊)

let us now enjoy today’s song from “Saazish”(1975)…
