I received my first copy of HFGK in February 2015 and after that it become my routine to go through it as and when possible and search for songs covered on the blog as well as songs that were yet to be covered and other interesting information of movies from the decade of 1971-80.

One of the more easily recognizable figures on the Hindi film screen. There are two hallmark identifications, with which we can easily pick out Asit Sen (the actor). The first one is his size. It is remarkable that he maintained his figure through the entirety of his career. One can see him in his earliest appearances in films like ‘Do Bigha Zameen’, playing the role of a seller of sweets and savories, and then also see him in films after three decades – ‘Mera Karam Mera Dharam’ (1987), playing the role of school headmaster. There is no change in his physique. For the number of years one sees him on screen in the same physical dimensions, the thought almost comes into the mind – maybe this is how he was born.🙂

In the late 50s and early 60s when I got interested in Hindi film songs, I used to identify the popular songs only with the playback singers who had rendered them. It never came to my mind that I should also know as to who wrote the lyrics and who composed the music for the songs.  In the next stage of my interest in Hindi film songs, I was keen to know as to who composed the music for the songs that I liked very much. It was only when I heard some of the songs from films such as ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), ‘Kaaghaz Ke Phool’ (1959), ‘Anaadi’ (1959), ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960) etc, I felt that need to know as to who wrote the lyrics of the songs as well.

Surajmukhi (1950) was produced under the banner of Madhuban Pictures and was directed by OP Datta. The star cast included Shyam and Rehana in the lead roles with Gope, Yashodara Katju, Randhir, Durga Khote, Hafeez Jahan, Cuckoo etc in the supporting roles. I did not get any information about the contents of the film. I guess from the songs that the film belonged to the social genre with some shades of romance in it.

nand ghar anand bhayo
jai kanhaiyya lal ki

Greetings all friends on this auspicious celebration of Nandotsav today. Just a little while back, the prayers and aartis were being held in all temples celebrating the anniversary of the appearance of Krsna, in a jailhouse in Mathura. The main telecast was coming from the Janambhoomi temple in Mathura itself. All temples were crowded with devotees who had come for the darshan of infant Krsna, who appeared to Devaki and Vasudev during their confinement in the prison of Kans, the cruel and vengeful king of Mathura.  And worse, Kans was the cousin brother of the very lady, Devaki, whom he had imprisoned. The story of that confinement and of the reasons behind it has been told many times.
