Hullo Atuldom

Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia was born on 1st July 1938 to a father who wanted the son to be a wrestler. The obedient son did go to the Akhada and trained with his father along with learning music and practising at a friend’s home.

Pt. Hariji has said once, and I quote, “he was not very good at wrestling but the training had helped him build up strength and stamina which has helped him play the bansuri (flute) to this day.”

Initially he was learning vocal music but switched to playing the flute and Bholanath Prasanna of Varanasi was his guru. After a few years, Annapurna Devi was his guide and that is when he turned to playing the flute left-handed. Panditji is the recipient of numerous awards including the Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan. He has collaborated with Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma since the 60s with albums like “Call of the Valley”. The Shiv-Hari combo gave music to a few Hindi films too, most of them from YashRaj Films.

Today we are wishing Panditji on turning 84 a few days back with a composition that is from Yash Chopra directed, Firoz A Nadiadwala produced and May 1993 released “Parampara”.

Much of the movie was shot in the famous boarding school of Ajmer -Mayo College. It starred Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher as the seniors. Raveena Tandon, Neelam Kothari, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan (this was his debut in Hindi films) formed the young brigade. Ashwini Bhave and Ramya Krishnan were cast as Vinod Khanna’s wives – one chosen by him and the other by his father Sunil Dutt. Saif and Aamir were VK’s children who are educated in a boarding school where they sing today’s song. Anand Bakshi wrote the songs.

This is a song which has Amit Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar singing for the collegiates who are enjoying after “lights out” (I have seen this movie a long time back, hope I am correct?)

3rd July a very important date in the life of a singer who has carried the legacy of his family, in HFM. His uncle began as an actor who used to sing his own songs; most of which are popular to this date. I am speaking of the Ganguly family and the uncle I spoke of was Ashok Kumar. 3rd July happens to be the birthdate of Amit Kumar who was born into the Ganguly Family as son of Kishore Kumar (a singer-actor in his own league) and Ruma (who was also an actor-singer).

There are singers and people connected with the arts in Ruma’s lineage too -Ruma’s mother was also a singer. It is hardly surprising that Amit Kumar took to singing early in life. There are interviews available in public Domain where Amit Kumar has spoken about how he used to sing at Durga Pooja pandals and how his mother complained to his ‘Baba’ etc. Amit Kumar has also spoken about how his father “Baba” took him to Bombay (Mumbai back then) and how he began his journey. One thing about Amit Kumar is that he never tried to ape his father. His voice was distinct and we have a few duets of Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar where the distinction is obvious (two of these are on the blog.)

We have had 58 Amit Kumar songs (only) on the blog. The categories listed on the right hand side of the blog show that he has had duets with all possible male and female playback singers. We also have songs (on the blog) where he has appeared on-screen. Today- 3rd July – we wish Amit Kumar on turning 70.

What!!!! did I say 70!!!! Unbelievable. He is still so youthful when we see him on the various reality shows as judge. He is his father’s biggest fan. And we are his fans. A very Very Happy Birthday Amitda.

Belated Wishes to Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia on turning an year older.

With this Shiv-Hari song from “Parampara” which makes its debut on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

‘Cape Fear’ (1962) was a noir psychological thriller that had Gregory Peck, Robert Mitchum and Polly Bergen in the cast and was directed by J Lee Thompson. The movie was based on the 1957 novel ‘The Executioners’ by John D. Macdonald. The movie was the story of an attorney whose family is stalked by a criminal he had helped to send to jail.

‘Mangal Dada (1986) was directed by Ramesh Gupta, had Sunil Dutt, Reena Roy, Amjad Khan, Sarika, Satyendra Kapoor, Achala Sachdev, Farida Jalal, Bhagwan Dada, Birbal etc in its cast. Though it released in 1986 it was launched in 1975. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and songs were written by Shaily Shailendra, Gauhar Kanpuri, and Indeevar. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mageshkar, Aarti Mukherjee and Manhar Udhas were the playback singers. It seems Reena Roy’s voice was dubbed by someone else.

‘Qayamat’ (1983) was directed by Raj N Sippy. It had Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Jaya Prada, Poonam Dhillon, Smita Patil in its cast. (Jaya Prada’s was either a special or guest appearance). Majrooh Sultanpuri and RD Burman were the lyricist and music director for songs that were sung by Asha Bhonsle. One song sequence from this movie is posted on the blog as part of Sudhirji’s series on ‘songs repeated in Hindi films’ – this one “Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai“.

‘Kanoon Kya Karega’ (1984) was directed by Mukul Anand and had a cast of Suresh Oberoi, Danny, Deepti Naval, Iftekhar, Shraddha Verma, Sharat Saxena etc. in the cast. The music was by Salil Choudhury but I can’t find any songs attributed to this movie. (I think I have seen this on television).

“Zahreela” (2001) was also directed by Raj N Sippy (he seemed to have been in love with the plot.) The movie’s cast was Mithun Chakravarthy, Om Puri, Kashmera Shah, Gulshan Grover, Shalini Kapoor, etc. The songs were written by Dev Kohli and Anand-Milind were the music directors. Abhijeet, Sudesh Bhonsle, Jaspinder Narula, Purnima, Sonu Nigam, and Preeti Uttam were the playback singers.

I am sure the reader is thinking why I have listed all these movies here. Well all the Hindi films were inspired from ‘Cape Fear’. This statement will give us an idea of the story of all the movies.

This post has a song from ‘Mangal Dada’ which is written by Gauhar Kanpuri and is sung by Manhar Udhas and Lata Mangeshkar.

Gauhar Kanpuri made his debut in Bollywood in 1967 but the real breakthrough came in 1975 when he wrote the songs for Sunil Dutt’s ‘Zakhmee’. After ‘Zakhmee’ he regularly associated with Bappi Lahiri. Many of the songs he wrote went on to become popular:- “Abhi Abhi Thi Dushmani” (Zakhmee), “Ae Mere Humsafar Ae Meri Jaan-e-Jaan” (‘Baazigar’ – 1993), “Tumhe Geeton Mein Dhaaloonga” (‘Saawn Ko Aane Do’ – 1979) to name some. In his career of nearly 25 years he wrote around 300 songs for almost 120 films. The statistics page of our blog says that there are 22 songs written by him on the blog. He was born on 1st October 1932 and passed away on 29th June 2002.

[Author’s Note: The matter for this post has been extracted from Cinemaazi article – ‘Gauhar Kanpuri – Lyricist‘. And I found this site has given atulsongaday.me as its source. Back to starting point? 🙂 ]

30th June is the birth anniversary of Shri Kalyanji Veerji Shah of the Kalyanji-Anandji music director duo. He would have been 94. I am sure we have enough material on the blog on this music duo and Kalyanji bhai, in particular. We all know that the musical journey of Kalyanji Bhai began when he played the ‘been music‘ for ‘Nagin’ in 1954. A journey that went on for almost 46 years with one popular song following the other. Each and every lover of HFM will have a personal playlist of Kalyanji-Anandji song. The blog has 630 songs of this duo from a possible 1435.

Today’s song must be a rare occasion when K-A associated with Gauhar Kanpuri. I haven’t found a video link to the song; but I am assuming that it is filmed on Sunil Dutt and Reena Roy.

Song – Kadam Kadam Tera Pyaar Hum Paate Rahen Sanam (Mangal Dada) (1986) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Manhar Udhas, Lyrics – Gauhar Kanpuri, MD – Kalyanji Anandji
Lata Mangeshkar + Manhar Udhas

This Week, That Year – 9
———————————–
26Jun – 02Jul, 2012

Ah yes, long gap. My intention has been to make this series a weekly affair. But then – ‘man proposes, everybody else disposes’ keeps happening with me. 😀 . And so, intentions aside, this series has been a victim of my preoccupations / laziness / lack of creativity – howsoever I may say it. But of course, no excuses are relevant.

Rear view mirror scenario on the blog, of the week that was – 26th Jun to 2nd July of 2012. Let us take a look at the numbers first.

Here is the table that shows the daily postings on the blog for that week.

A total of 33 songs were posted in that week, at an average of about 4.7 songs per day. The pageant of the calendar covered is four decades – from 1936 to 1976.  Break up of films by decade is as follows,

1930s  –  2 (Both from 1936)
1940s  –  1 (Jugnu, 1947)
1950s  –  12
1960s  –  9
1979s  –  9

No film got repeated and so we covered 33 films during that week, Well actually, it is 32 films and 1 NFS. The NFS was a song by CH Atma.

As many as 9 films made their debut that week. And yes, 2 films got Yippeee’d in that week – ‘Duniya’ (1968) and ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974). Just as an aside, I did a quick check on the Yippeee status of films, till that week. When the week started, we were 3 years, 11 months and 7 days ahead of the blog initiation date of 19 July, 2008. Want to take a guess as to how many films had been Yippeee’d till then? I myself was a little surprised at the number. By that date, we had already Yippeee’d 135 films on the blog. Majority of this list is from the 1950s and 1960s. Surprise item is that there is one film from 1939. Besides, there are 12 films from 1940s, and 17 films from 1970s. The remaining 105 films are from the two decades of 50s and 60s.  We were 6,133 posts old on 26th June.

The week saw two major milestone achieved. On 28th June, with the song “Beech Bajariya Mori Chunariya Sar Se Sarki Jaaye” from film ‘Khoobsurat’ of 1952, SH Behari arrived at his first century milestone. He had made his debut on the blog on 1st December, 2008, and completed his first century in a little more than three and a half years. On 30th June, with the song “Koi Bechaara” from the film ‘Sannata’ of 1966, Lata Mangeshkar breached the 1,800 mark on the blog.

Of all the 33 films that were showcased that week, 25 have been Yippeee’d since then. Seven films continue to be tagged with ‘Pending’ status. One film, ‘Tangaawaali’ from 1955 carries the conditional Yippeee tag. Of the 9 songs in this film, 7 are already posted here. However two songs are not released on 78rpm record. The video of the film has not yet surfaced on public domain. So we tag those two songs as untraceable (UT). And pending their discovery, we tag the film with the status as conditionally Yippeee’d (Yc).

During this current week, two songs of pending films in this week have been posted as part of the ten year challenge series. One song from the 1973 film ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’  – “Haaye Bichhua Das Gayo Re”, was posted by Avinash ji on 27th June, and actually Yippeee’d that film too. And just a little while ago today, Atul ji has posted the song “Kaaraj Ki Jyot Sadaa Hi Jarey” from the 1936 film ‘Amar Jyoti’. So the numbers given above get modified as pending films reduced to 6 and the number of Yippeee’d films now is 26.

And with the song that I bring to the blog in this post, these numbers will change once again. This song is from the 1961 film ‘Hum Matwaale Naujawaan’. This film so far has only one song remaining to be posted. With this post on the blog, the film will also get Yippeee’d. Pending films list is further reduced to 5 and the Yippeee’d films number increases to 27.

The song is a real gem – a vintage Chitragupt creation. The music director is well known for his melodious commpositions. And this song is a very fine example of his creativity and talent. I listened to this song today, after tons of years, jiggling my memory of the radio listening days. And I am surprised that this melody has been waiting in the wings for so long. This film made its debut here on 28th October, 2010. The previous posted song (fifth one from the film) came on to the blog on 29th September, 2018. The final song of the film comes on board today, after more than eleven and a half years of its debut.

The song is such an endearing duet of Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. The lyrics are from the pen of Mahjrooh Sb.

The words of the song indicate as being a male-female duet. But since it is sung as a all female duet, it is possible that this duet may be a performance by two actresses on screen, one taking the role of the male person. The male person is trying to woo the lady and invites her to visit his alley, And the lady appears to be putting up a refusal to the gentleman’s advances.

A very lively melody, that is a hallmark of Chitragupt’s music. Jiggling memories of the wonderful music that we used to enjoy on the radio.

Listen and enjoy.

Song – Aana Kabhi Hamre Duaar Saanwal Goriya  (Hum Matwaale Naujawaan) (1961) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Chitragupt

Pancham’s Music – Eighties (1981-1990) – 8 (1988)

In today’s post we move on to Pancham’s music in 1988.

In the previous posts under this series we have already seen how the number of movies where music was composed by RD Burman was on a ‘reducing’ trend since 1986, as compared to the previous years from 1981 to 1985. Here is the list of movies from the year 1988 where music for these movies was composed by him.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Rama O Rama’. I was aware of the title song of this movie since long as this song was featured in one of the albums of songs sung by Amit Kumar. Also I did like this song very much.

‘Rama O Rama’ was directed by Mirza Brothers for Mirza Brothers Films Pvt Ltd’. It had Raj Babbar, Kimi Katkar, and debutant Aasif. The cast also included Pran, Raza Murad, Kiran Kumar, and Gulshan Grover. Supporting cast of this movie included Shammi, Shiva, Vishakha, Prabha Mathur, Shaila Khan, Murari Sharma, Rohit, Sridhar, Master Imran, Master Lovely, Baby Aisha, Master Javed, and others.

The story and screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers. And editing of this movie was done by Vijay Pande.

The film has 6 songs. Lyrics for the songs in this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and Usman Aarif. Music is composed by RD Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Mohd Aziz, Jayshree Shivram, Iqbal Siddiqui gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie included the following sound tracks,

Sl. No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Ae Haseen Naazneen Anand Bakshi Mohd Aziz
02 Barson Ke Baad Dekha Aarif Iqbal Siddiqui
03 Rama O Rama Anand Bakshi Jayshree Shivram
04 Taubaa Aashiq Aur Aisa Anand Bakshi Asha Bhonsle, Mohd. Aziz
05 Rama O Rama Anand Bakshi Amit Kumar, Jayshree Shivram
06 Ae Haseen Naazneen Anand Bakshi Mohd Aziz

Today’s song is sung by Amit Kumar and Jayshree Shivram. On screen the male version is lip-synced by debutant Aasif. I am unable to identify the actress lip-syncing the female version on screen.

This was Amit Kumar’s first recording after the death of Kishore Kumar (he has mentioned about this in an interview). We can see the difference in his voice in singing of this song. He does sound like Pancham Da in the alaap “Raama O Raama”. This is a poignant song we can see how he has poured his heart in this song.

I have not watched this movie. But as mentioned above I only remember the today’s song from this movie since long or since 1988/89 I think. Yesterday was the eighty-third birth anniversary of musical genius RD Burman. Let us listen to his this poignant composition. I am sure you will like this composition very much.

With this post the movie ‘Rama O Rama’ makes its debut on the blog.

We are in the fag-end of the month of June of this year 2022. As I had mentioned earlier that this month is a special for many of us due to the many anniversaries falling in this month i.e., anniversaries of relatives, friends and as well as anniversaries of many artists too. Today we celebrate birth anniversary of our beloved music genius Rahul Dev Burman, and one post has already been posted on the blog remembering Pancham.

Today 27th June, 2022 is also the seventy-second birth anniversary of singer Nitin Mukesh (born on 27th June, 1950). We wish him a very happy birthday today and also wish him a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

On this occasion I am once again going back to the songs from the movie ‘Santosh’ (1989). There is one duet sung by Nitin Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle in this movie which is yet to be posted on the blog. This song is lying ready with us since long and I take this opportunity to present it today here on the blog.

‘Santosh’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. It has Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others. Story of ‘Santosh’ is written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik).

This movie has seven songs written by Santosh Anand (six songs) and Manoj Kumar (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. I have earlier mentioned the details of the songs of this movie in my previous posts, so I am not going to repeat them again here.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Hema Malini. This song is a nice duet to watch and listen.

Let us enjoy this beautiful song now …

Song – Bataao Tumhen Pyaar Kaise Karoon (Santosh) (1989) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Nitin Mukesh, Lyrics – Santosh Anand, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
bina bole hothon ka hilna hai kya
mujhe inka matlab to samjhaaiye
khayaalon mein phoolon ka khilna hai kya
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
mujhe ghut ke marne ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe ae …

bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin
main jaisa bhi hoon
haan
jaisa bhi hoon
saamne hoon khadaa aa
mujhe kuchh chhupaane ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin

ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
bina bole hothon ka hilna hai kya
mujhe inka matlab to samjhaaiye
khayaalon mein phoolon ka khilna hai kya
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
mujhe ghut ke marne ki aadat nahin

mujhe itni fursat mili hai kahaan
mujhe itni fursat mili hai kahaan
jo padhta tumhaare nayan ki ghazal
mujhe aaj lagta hai sach maan lo
ye chehra nahin hai gulaabi kamal 
ye dil kaise chori kiya jaayega
ye dil kaise chori kiya jaayega
mujhe dil churaane ki aadat nahin

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

mujhe kuchh huaa hai pataa hai tumhe
badi nam hawaa hai pataa hai tumhe
badan jal rahaa hai ragon mein magar
lahu jam gaya hai pataa hai tumhe*
lo sar jhuk gaya hai tumhe kya khabar
lo sar jhuk gaya hai tumhe kya khabar
mujhe sar jhukaane ki aadat nahin
main jaisa bhi hoon
haan
jaisa bhi hoon
saamne hoon khadaa aa
mujhe kuchh chhupaane ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe’ (1984).

One song from this movie has been posted on the blog by our Respected Sadanand ji, – “Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye“. In his write up Sadanand ji has mentioned Indian cricket and Bollywood both enjoy enormous popularity among Indians”. Yes! Very rightly said by him and this has the case been with most of our country-men and particularly people like me who have grown up in the ‘seventies’. We loved movies and cricket at the same level and they have been an integral part of our ‘life’s journey’.

Today I will add a little to the nostalgia about cricket, a song from a movie where a cricketer was the main lead and memories of the month of June. As I had mentioned earlier ‘June’ has been special month for me for many reasons. It has birth anniversaries and other anniversaries of closed ones and many other important things of my personal journey.

Other than the personal anniversaries we have anniversaries related to cricket 😊, anniversary of my passing out board exam in June 1983 😊, and anniversaries of many movies and memories of many movies released in 1983. We have birth anniversary and remembrance days of many artists etc.

1983 had been a special year for me and particularly the summer of 1983. Every summer brings back many memories of the 1983 summer to me. India won its first Cricket World Cup in June 1983. The movie ‘83’ which was released in December 2021 revived the thrill and nostalgia of the 1983 cricket world cup. I watched this movie twice on its First day (i.e. first Friday) and again on ‘second Friday’ in theater. Recently again I watched this movie on OTT as I was alone at home 😊.

In this article I am not going to discuss the ‘Summer of 1983’ or ‘June of 1983’ anymore. But I will be taking you back to the summer of 1982. Indian cricket team was on tour to England in that summer of 1982.

Yes, I still remember how I jumped out of my bed, when I was listening to the commentary of radio of the second test of India vs England Test match that was played from June 24 to 28 at Manchester during India’s tour of England in 1982. It was 27th of June (since 1994 this day become very special day of my life, and yes, we have Pancham’s birthday on the same day too  😊).

27th June, 1982 was the fourth day of this test and the time in India then must have been around 10 or 10:30 pm (I do not remember it exactly now). I was lying down on bed and listening to the commentary of this match on radio. And I jumped from my bed and sat on my toes in half standing position when the commentator was giving a ball by ball commentary of the over England’s bowler Bob Willis (who was also the captain of England). The batsman on strike was India’s Sandeep Patil. The first ball was hit for a four and then followed four after four…

This was the famous ‘six fours of Sandeep Patil in an over…

Sandeep Patil made his test debut in 1980 and played his last ODI in 1986. He was always in news for his ‘destructive batting’ and ‘other than cricket’ activities. From cricket I always remember his 174 against Australia, then the ‘world cup’, and when he was specially called for a test with Pakistan at Nagpur (Oct’1983) where he landed by a special ‘air-craft’ provided Maharashtra Government.

In between his cricket career he had also done a movie. Today we are going to listen to a song from this movie. Though this movie was not a success it was in news and especially the chemistry between Sandeep Patil and the heroine of the movie Debashree Roy was a talk among our senior friends at that time. I have not watched this movie.

‘Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe’ was directed by Vijay Singh for VS Productions, Bombay. Vijay Singh not only directed this movie, but he was also the producer of this movie and had written dialogues of this movie and had done the editing of this movie too. The star cast of the movie has Poonam Dhillon, Sandeep Patil, Debashree Roy, Ram Sethi, Iftekhar, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Narendra Nath, Birbal, Jugnu, Raj Anand, Chunnu Mehra, Vinay Mandke, Indrajeet Ahluwalia, and others. Sayyad Kirmani, Barrister Sheshrao Wankhede, Prabhu Desai, Vishwas Raut, Ashok Mankad, and Pinki had made a friendly appearance in this movie. Shakti Kapoor had made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.09.1984.

The movie has seven songs written by two songwriters – Dev Kohli (five songs) and Ravindra Peepat (two songs). Music for this movie was composed by Vijay Singh himself. So, he had donned the ‘hats’ of Producer-Director-Editor-Dialogue writer and Music Director of this movie). Here is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Welcome To The Orkay Nite … Pehli Nazar Mein Pyaar Huaa Dev Kohli Suniti Devi, Vinay Mandke, Aenet, chorus
02 Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe Zameen Aasmaan Ye Ravindra Peepat Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar
03 Aa Ja Mere Sanam, Baithhe Hain Raahon Mein Palken Bichha Ke Ravindra Peepat Lata Mangeshkar
04 Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
05 Geet Mere Honthhon Ko De Gaya Koi Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
06 Is Dafaa Ham Na Ghataaon Ki Tarah Chhaayenge Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
07 Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye Dev Kohli Ashok Khare

HFGK mentions the following names in the singer’s list of this movie i.e. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Suniti Devi, Ashok Khare, Vinay Mandke, and Vijay Singh. Today’s song is duet song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar and on screen it is lip synced by Poonam Dhillon and Sandeep Patil.

Lyrics for the today’s songs are by Ravindra Peepat and music is composed by Vijay Singh.

As Sadanandji has mentioned in his post “The only plus point in the movie, if I may say so, is its music”. This movie has nice songs and I like all the songs of this movie except the songs listed at serial no. 1 in the above table which I think I had not listened or I do not remember it. Incidentally the first song from this movie was also posted in the month of June on 18.06.2016 :).

Let us enjoy the today’s song now…

This is the 1,100th post by Arunkumar Deshmukh.

POST NO. 1100  !!!!

Today, I have mixed feelings in my mind. One way, I am happy that I am posting my 1,100th article here and on the other way, I am wondering how did I achieve this all? My first post came up here on 1-10-2012, though I had been posting my comments on the Blog’s other posts since the end of 2010. That time I had not even dreamt that I would ever write 1100 articles here or that I would remain connected with this Blog for almost 10 years continuously.
 
A habit of seeing old films and jotting down all the film details in my diary later that day turned into almost a career of writing articles on old films, its people, songs and anecdotes etc, in the last part of my life. Not many people start a second inning after retiring from a job of 35 years – that too absolutely unconnected to what one did in the last so many years !
 
That way my life has been taking unexpected turns at every stage, unconnected with what I did earlier. After coming in the merit list of 12th standard, I joined Medical College. Midway through the first year of M.B.B.S. I left it and joined Agriculture college. I won the All India Best Cadet N.C.C. Trophy at Delhi, as a Senior Under Officer. After graduating in Agriculture, I declined the Govt. Officer’s post in the department and became a Medical Representative in Glaxo, then All India No. 1 company. After 35 years in this field, I retired as General Manager-Marketing !
 
During this period I excelled in Astrology and won the ‘Jyotish Praveen’ title from Poona Mahasabha. I also earned a Brown Belt in Judo, besides acting in dramas etc. I traveled all over India, Pakistan. Nepal and Sri Lanka, U.K. and USA. After retirement I visited Europe, Switzerland and Australia with my wife.
 
With all this done, I turned to my original love – old films and music. I learnt how to use a Computer at the age of 71 years and  using old surviving diaries started writing articles on this Blog. I interviewed close relatives of a few old-time artistes and published them on the internet. I have written on Marathi films, Telugu films and even Kannada films on different blogs. There was a time when I wrote on 5 to 6 different Blogs at a time on different topics like history of films and film songs etc. But my first love has always been AtulSongADay. I honestly believe that I could do all this in this field due to the encouragement of Atul Ji. My heartfelt thanks to him. I must also mention the name of Sudhir ji, who has always supported and helped me. We have been very good friends and are in constant touch. Thanks, Sudhir ji.
In this Blog, I got good company from friends, many I have been able to meet also BUT I HAVE YET TO MEET ATUL JI. I have never even talked to him on phone anytime ! I wish that before I end all this game, we meet at least ONCE !
At this juncture, I did some self assessment. I have kept all the logbooks wherein I first hand-write my articles, before typing them. I have 27 such log books chronicling all my 1100 posts as well as interviews, lined up serially with dates of writing, date of posting on the Blog, serial number, film,song and year details of each post. I found out some statistics.
 
In these 1,100 articles, I have written on songs from films of 1930-40 (152), 1941-50 (417), 1951-60 (412), 1961-70 (46), 1971-80 (27), 1981-90 (8), 1991-2000 (5), 2000-2010(1) 2011-20 (3)  and NFS – 29 = Total 1,100 articles. This works out to 89% posts on films from 1932 to 1960 and only 11%  after 1961. So the fact remains that less than 100 posts are done for films of the post 1961 period, contrary to my estimate of about 200 such posts. This makes me ‘The Grand Old Man’ (पुराण पुरुष) in true sense.
 
Coming to today’s film, ‘Jhamela’ (1953) was a film made by Master Bhagwan after his colossal hit film ‘Albela’ of 1951. Prior to ‘Albela’, Bhagwan was making and directing only stunt films. The making of ‘Jhamela’ has an interesting history. After ‘Albela’, Bhagwan wanted to make a film called ‘Beta Laadla’ with Raj Kapoor and Nargis. He had talked to Raj and he had accepted it for Rs. 55,000 only. Bhagwan had kept RK’s cheque also ready. Meanwhile there was a party to celebrate the ‘Albela’ success, at Sai Prasad, CR’s house.
 
During the party, there was a discussion about Bhagwan’s next social film and PL Santoshi announced ‘Jhamela’ as his next film. Bhagwan was surprised and said,”What jhamela ? There is no story, nothing.” Santoshi said “The story can come later. First you make an announcement. The name is catchy and CR will give music”. Due to pressure from guests like S Mukherjee, CR, Santoshi and other guests, Bhagwan made the official announcement.
 
However, in spite of the success of ‘Albela’, Bhagwan’s luck started going down and down. Though he made many films like ‘Jhamela’, ‘Rangeela’, ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Bhala Admi’, ‘Pyara Dushman’, ‘Kar Bhala’, ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’, ‘Sachche Ka Bolbala’, ‘Hum Deewane’, ‘La Bela’ etc., he did not see same luck again. ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Pyara Dushman’, and ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ did somewhat better.
 
It was from the film ‘Albela’ that CR gave music to Bhagwan’s film in his real name. Prior to this, he gave music to his stunt films as ‘Annasaheb’.This type of use of pen names was followed by many MDs. GM Durrani gave music as Gunjan, SD Batish gave music as Nirmal Kumar. Snehal Bhatkar used several names like Vasudev, B Vasudev, VG Bhatkar and Snehal, before taking up another pen name Snehal Bhatkar for the rest of his career. Actually his name was Vasudeo and Snehal was his daughter’s name. These are well known, but today I will tell you 2 pen names FIRST time on the internet – on this Blog! Hardly anybody knows that Anil Biswas gave music to film ‘Begunah’ (1949) in the name of Haribhai. His co-MD in this film was Shyamu – none other than C Ramchandra. This information is given in the Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema by Rajadhyaksha on pages 67 and 190.
 
Although the team for ‘Jhamela’ was the same as Albela and they tried their best, still ‘Jhamela’ was not successful. Somebody had told Bhagwan that titles ending with ‘la‘ were lucky for him. Bhagwan tried this even, but he did not succeed in films like ‘Jhamela’, ‘Rangeela’, ‘Kar Bhala’, ‘Sachche Ka Bolbala’ and ‘La-Bela’. All this led to Bhagwan’s downfall to rock bottom. He had to sell his houses, cars etc and go back to the chawl where he had started from in his career. Bhagwan is a real case of ‘Rags to Riches to Rags‘.
 
Today’s song is a duet of Lata and Chitalkar.  I like duets of 2 pairs – Hemant Kumar – Lata, and Chitalkar – Lata, in that order. Even for my 1000th post on 18-8-2021  I had selected a CR song, but it was a chorus of Amirbai, Rajkumari, Durrani, Khan Mastana and CR. Today is 18-6-2022 – a gap of 10 months and 100 songs…an average of 10 posts every month for the last 10 months !
 
I once again thank all those who helped me in this fruitful journey. Enjoy the CR-Lata duet.

Blog Day :

5080 Post No. : 17003

Today’s song is from the film ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ (1961).

Generally, I like to write on films from the 30’s to the 50’s decade, which is my comfort zone. I feel homely and on friendly ground when I write about those old films. Films after 1960 are NOT a ‘ NO- NO ‘ for me, but unless I find either the film or the song interesting, I normally do not choose that song. That way and to allay any misunderstanding in our readers’ minds, let me stress here that I have written more than 200 posts on films from 1960 to 2013 also. Actually since there is still so much scope in the first 3 decades of talkie films, turning to the films of 60+ songs is not that common.

Just for my own information, I was curious about when was the last song from the 60’s discussed by me. I took out my long books wherein I first hand write my articles, backwards from my post on the 12th June 2022. I was surprised to find that my last song-post for a film of 1962 (‘Sautela Bhai’) was on 6-12-2020 ! That’s a cool gap of 176 posts in between !!

The usual question comes as to what is an ‘Old Film’ ? It all depends on the person’s age who wants to know the answer. Over a period of last so many years I got the following answer….

For a Person Aged An Old Film is From
20-30 years films of and prior to 1990
30-40 1980
40-50 1970
50-60 1960
60-70 1950
70-80 1940
80++ 1930

For youngsters of 20-30 years, songs of 1930 are antiques, 1940’s are Grandpa’s choices, 50 & 60’s are Dad’s favorites and 70 & 80’s are very old songs ! So, one can see the connection between the age and the period of film songs to label it differently !

Now coming to today’s song ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ (KPKD) was a costume/stunt drama. The title of this film has an interesting history behind it.

During the 30’s and the 40’s there was a comedian named Noor Mohammed. Based on his role as Charlie Chaplin including his dress, mustache, hat, stick, talk and walk, he was nicknamed as Charlie. There was a time when this Charlie was extremely popular all over India. He used to sing his own songs too. He became so famous and popular that films were sold in his name . He started to get special songs shot on him in almost every film – much before Johnny Walker in the 50s. He sang his own songs. He left Ranjit Studios and was the first actor to become a ‘free-lance‘ breaking the studio system. Some of his films and songs therein were famous all over India. In the film ‘Sanjog’ (1943), he sang “Palat, Tera Dhyan Kidhar Hai“. This line became so famous that young boys in colleges used this line for calling girls, in those days. In the film ‘Dhandhora’ (1941), he sang “Ek Do Teen Char Paanch Chhe Saat Aath Nau Dus Gyara Bara,Teri Nazar Ne Mujhe Mara“. Raj Kapoor used “Ek Do Teen Aaja Mausam Hai Rangeen” (film ‘Awaara’ (1951)) and later Madhuri Dixit’s “Ek Do Teen” (film ‘Tezaab’ (1988)) became very famous. In the film ‘Taqdeer’ (1943) he sang ”Thank You, Mention Not” and “I Am Very Very Sorry”. These too became popular.

Based on Charlie’s song “Palat, Tera Dhyan Kidhar Hai” this film’s title was finalized as ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’. For reasons unknown to others, the Censor board objected to this title and asked the makers to change it. After a lot of arguments, the makers finally had to change it to ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. I have seen this film. Neither the original nor the revised title had any connection with the story of the film.

This was the first and the only film directed by actor CS aka Chandrashekhar Dubey. I could not get enough information about Dubey from anywhere. He used to live somewhere in the Seven Bungalows area of Andheri west, where I have been living since long time. I used to see him along with his friends sitting in a hotel nearby sometimes. After searching a lot, I came across a short note on him by Mr. MN Sardana ji on the FB page of ‘Wo Din Yaad Karo’. For our readers, I reproduce it here after adapting and adding my information to it from my notes.

Chandrashekhar Dubey aka C Dubey was born on 4-9-1924 at Village Kannod of Dewas District in the then Central Provinces (now Madhya Pradesh). During his college education, he was very active in politics and had been in jail during the Quit India movement too. He had his quota of struggle, when he arrived at Mumbai to become someone .

Luckily he found his Godfather in film maker Amiya Chakraborty, who noticed him and took him under his wings. Dubey, became his Man Friday. He was spot boy, production executive, prompter and assistant director all rolled into one, besides doing small roles in the films made by Mars & Movies and other production Houses . His first film was ‘Devdaasi’ (1945).

Filmmaker Guru Dutt gave him the role of a doctor in ‘Mr & Mrs 55’ (1955), which got him much needed publicity. In the famous movie ‘Seema’, made by his mentor Amiya Chakraborty, Dubey was assigned the role of a street ruffian cum thief, who made the life of heroine Nutan miserable. People found Dubey quite amusing and he became a full time actor. In 1957 Amiya Chakraborty passed away suddenly due to heart attack, leaving his movie ‘Kathputli’ incomplete, which was completed by Nitin Bos. Totally dedicated to his late master Amiya Chakraborty, Dubey did not leave the company. Ajit Chakraborty took the reins of the company and made ‘Ardhangini’ in 1959 and ‘Apne Huye Paraye’ in 1964 and Dubey gave him his full support and services.

While he was established as a character actor, he now wanted to exhibit his other skills by directing a film He got a chance in 1960 to direct a light hearted entertaining movie ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’. It was a modest movie and had an experienced artist Anoop Kumar And a new bee Preeti Bala as lead players. Anoop Kumar had appeared in many movies in supporting roles and had done a variety of roles like hero, comedian, villain and sympathetic roles. In the 1952 movie ‘Rani’, which was made by Jupiter Pictures, Madras and directed by LV Prasad , he did a swashbuckling role of a warrior, opposite the great actress of South Bhanumathi, who was a versatile singer also.

Preeti Bala was raw and had only a faint idea about acting. Instead of changing the style of acting, she changed her name as Zeb Rehman, which did not bring any change to her destiny. She was in news during sixties when she did body double of Madhubala in few movies like ‘Half Ticket’, ‘BoyFriend’ and ‘Passport’, since Madhubala was ailing and it was not possible for her to attend the shooting. The movie ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’ had music by Gunjan. The movie, when completed and sold, faced a big hurdle, when Censor Board refused to certify the movie. Their main objection was related to the title of the film, which they found offensive and denigrating. Producer tried to justify the title, but our prude and adamant Censor Board refused to budge and insisted on changing the title. Since publicity material including lobby cards were already printed, film makers reluctantly renamed the movie as ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. The movie when released in 1961, did not do good for any one and all those connected with the movie were disappointed. Since the movie had flopped, it poured cold water on the ambition of music composer Gunjan, director Dubey and the lead players. Producers duo Nanda and Gupta after losing substantial money downed the shutter of their company.

CS Dubey was a good character actor. He acted in 196 films. His last film was ‘Antim Nyay’ (1993). He died on 28-9-1993, but after his death, his 8 films were released – the last one being ‘Yaar Meri Zindagi’ (2008).

(Thanks to Mr. M.N.Sardana ji).

The film’s music director was Gunjan. Who was Gunjan? Most people do not know that Gunjan was another name under which singer/composer GM Durrani gave music. As Gunjan he also gave music to film ‘State Express’ (1961). Earlier in his career, he gave music to films like ‘Angoori’ (1943), ‘Vijayalaxmi’ (1943) and ‘Dhadkan’ (1946) under his real name.

The cast of the film was Anoop Kumar, Preeti Bala (aka Zeb Rehman), Durga Khote, Daljit, Iftikhar, Majnu, Polson, Dalda, Jeevankala etc.

‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ was truly an obscure movie. It was clearly a B grade film with the appropriate star cast. The Hero Anoop kumar was in double role in this film (as if one Anoop was not enough !).

The film was produced by Balendra Gupta and NC Nanda, under the banner of Movie Hits (indicating hopes), and was directed by CS Dubey or Chandrashekhar Dubey, a small time actor in those days. Dubey was a veteran, having started his career from the 30s and he used his knowledge of old films in this.The original title of this film was ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’.

Later on the title was changed to ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. However neither the audience ‘zara bhi palat ke dekh’ nor their kismet changed jara bhi !

The lyricists were Akhtar Romani and Sadiq Nazmi. Story and screenplay by Sri Prakash and Dialogues by Suman Romani.

The story of the film was….

The story had nothing remarkable and it was highly predictable. Prince Kunwar (Anoop Kumar) is studying in UK when his father dies and the king appoints him as his successor, instead of his elder brother Samsher (Daljit), who is a gone case, indulging in wine, women and gambling. Kunwar starts for India. Samsher wants to kill him. Loyal Diwan ji and another sardar, Mansingh are escorting Kunwar when they are attacked. Diwanji is killed, Kunwar is injured seriously and thrown in a river presuming dead, but Mansingh escapes. Mansingh, one day finds Badloo (Anup Kumar), who looks same to same as Kunwar. Mansingh does not know that he is a barber. Mansingh makes him the Kunwar and brings him to the capital of Kingdom. Princess Kiran (Preeti Bala) who is engaged to Kunwar suspects Badloo.

The real Kunwar is saved by people of Imlipur as Badloo and brought to his ‘mother’ (Durga Khote). Kunwar understands the situation and keeps quiet till opportune moment comes. Finally he contacts Kiran and they together expose the impostor prince, kill Samsher in a fight and reunite themselves as a reward.

In the early 60s, when the Film industry was churning out excellent movies after movies, it was hardly expected that such a film would succeed. The film got what it deserved. A peaceful rest in the cans !

The mukhda remains the same as the original title of the film “Zara Palat Ke Dekh”.

HFGK mentions Manna Dey and chorus, but the voice of S Balbir is also there in the song.
