Today’s song is from a Costume drama film, Dankaa-1954. The film was made by Goodwill Pictures and the director was J P Advani. The Music Director was Aziz Hindi aka Aziz Khan. The cast of the film was Nimmi, Amarnath (Bharadwaj), Mohana Cabral, Sunder (Singh), Heeralal, Neelam, Shivraj, Om Prakash etc etc.

From the day films were made in Silent Mode till about late 1960s, Stunt films, Action films, Costume dramas, Folk story films, Mystery films, Murder and crime films, Mythology and Religious films, Social and Reforms films, Jungle films, Arabian Night story films etc etc were made. The audience had an open choice, because, at a time, films of several genres were available for its entertainment. I can not exactly describe what type of films are made nowadays, but I am sure, most Genres – as mentioned above, are not being made.

Films for all Mental ages were made and each could make a choice of his liking. Nowadays, all age groups see the same films. Technology has developed tremendously. Special Effects (SFX) can do wonders in a film. In 1938, when Prakash films made their first Sci-Fi film ” Khwabon ki Duniya” ( which was a copy of Hollywood film ‘ The Invisible Man’-1933, which was based on the famous H G Wells’ novel of the same name, written and published in 1897), Babubhai Mistry used Black curtains and Black threads to create illusions of an Invisible Man’s actions, successfully and the audience had fingers in mouth with awe and wonder ! For next many years, Babubhai Mistry had earned a Moniker of ” Kaala Dhaga” in the industry ! These days such scenes are a child’s play. I truly miss those costume and stunt films, but one must flow with the flow !

The name SHIVRAJ in the cast always created curiosity in my mind. I had seen this actor in several films. I was unable to get any information on him anywhere. His role as the meek husband of Kaushalya (Manorama) in film Seeta aur Geeta-72 is unforgettable. When I started work on this post, I tried again. This time I found an article – actually an Obitury – on him in The Hindu, dated 4-6-2017. Of course it described in it only about his different roles. From some other source, I got his date of Birth and Death and a little other information.

Shivraj was born on 11-6-1920 in Madhya Pradesh. His full name was Shivraj Pandey. After doing his graduation, he came to Bombay in search of a good job, but joined film industry. To start with he worked in Minerva as an assistant in administration, He did some film roles too without getting credited. He left Minerva and got a role in film Sarai ke bahar-47. This was a film made by National studios. His next films were Ziddi, Majboor, Batohi, and Asha all in 1948. Then there was no looking back. Shivraj acted in 212 films. He directed 1 film, Jaani Dushman-57. He retired from work in 2000, but his last released film was Yaar meri zindgi-2008. Shivraj died on 4-6-2017.

One of the actors in this film was Om Prakash. He was one of those actors whose presence in the film is taken for granted. He was a very popular person in the industry. His comedy acting was typical. I can not forget his role in film ” Chupke Chupke”-75. His facial expression had no parallel.

Omprakash was mainly a comedian, but he had been a hero, a villain and a character artiste too. Of course the major part of his career is as a Comedian. He was one of the most respected artistes of his generation, in the industry. For some time, he floated a Film production company in collaboration with his close friend C. Ramchandra. When their films flopped,he simply dissolved the company and later produced films on his own and he directed them too. When his film Jahan Ara-64 flopped miserably, giving him a heavy monitory loss, he stopped producing films.

Omprakash was a lover of life, joy, jokes, playing cards and he was the happiest, when among his friends. Not many people know that the famous producer Pachhi ( Around the world etc) was his younger brother. Omprakash’s first film was ‘Guru Ghantal’-37 where he worked uncredited. He next did a small role in Bombay Talkies film ‘Anjaan’-41, but his career started when Pancholi got him a role in film ‘Daasi’-44. He earned Rs 80 for this film.

Omprakash worked in 293 films and directed 4 films namely, Duniya Gol hai-55, Gateway of India-57, Kanhaiya-59 and Chacha Zindabad-59, all produced by him alone. There were some films like Annadata-72, buddha mil gaya-71, Charandas-77 etc made keeping him as a central character. He sang 6 songs in 5 films- Meena Bazar-50, Ladki-53, Bindiya-60,Vardaan-74, and Ghar ki Izzat-94. HFGK mentions his name as a Lyricist for a song in film Dost-54.

OMPRAKASH BAKSHI was born on 19-12-1919 at Lahore.At the age of 12 ,he started learning classical music.In 1937,he joined A.I. Radio on a salary of Rs.25 pm.

He took the pen name of ‘FATEH DIN’. He presented entertaining programmes. He was very popular in Punjab and Lahore,during that period.In private parties he was a centre of attraction. In one such Party,where he was regaling his audience, he was noticed by Dalsukh Pancholi and he offered Omprakash a role in DAASI-1944.Then came Dhamki-45 and Aayee Bahaar-46. In Shehar se door-46, he was a co Hero with Al Nasir and later in Ghungroo-52 he was the Hero opposite Sumitra Devi.

Just when he was settling in films, partition took place and he landed in Bombay. His first film in Bombay was Lakhpati-48 and then there was no looking back. He acted as Villain in Naach, Nirdosh, Baghi Sipahi etc. He was a good actor and played a variety of roles. In many films he was shown as a Pehelwan. In Pehli Jhalak, his bout with Dara Singh became the film’s attraction. Even in Chameli ki Shaadi, he was a pehelwan.

There were many films made with him as a central character like, Annadaata, Dus lakh, Sadhu aur shaitan. Dil Duniya Daulat -72 was a remake of Pugree-48 in which he did the role which was done by comedian Ghori in Pugree.

C.Ramchandra was his best friend.They together produced Duniya gol hai-55,jhanjhar-53 and Lakeeren-54. The trailer of Duniya Gol hai was more interesting than the film. In this trailer, Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar and Ashok kumar come on the screen one after another and say-I have directed this film,so you must see it. Lastly Omprakash comes on screen and says,” Ye sab pagal hain. Picture to maine direct kee hai”. Anyway all the 3 films flopped despite good music. Later Omprakash alone produced films like Gateway of India-57, Chacha Zindabad-59, Sanjog-61 and Jahan Ara-64. After Jahan Ara’s colossal losses he stopped producing films and converted his office into a Card Game centre for friends.

His last days-

He lived in Union Park, Chembur, a suburb of Mumbai. He died at age 78 in Mumbai, India of a heart attack. The actor who was always so full of life was still full of life till just two days before his death. He knew he was not well. He knew he was suffering from various complications but he never gave up his zest for life till his heart betrayed him. He kept calling friends to play a game of Rummy or just chat. He had an office at the Roop Tara Studios which was only used for “Rummy sessions” and “chat sessions”. Then, some years ago, he shifted his office to the suburbs to make it more convenient for his friends. He attended this office regularly till his health started failing him. He was confined to his bungalow (next to Ashok Kumar’s bungalow). He suffered his first heart attack in his own bedroom. He was rushed to the Lilavati Hospital where he suffered a second heart attack and went into a coma from which he never came out. He was declared dead at 1.30 pm on February 21, 1998. The news spread fast and the industry was shocked and stunned because he was the kind of man who could not be easily associated with something so sombre and solemn like death.

Film Duniya Gol Hai-55 had a starcast of Karan Dewan, Anita Guha, Kuldeep Kaur, Sunder, Omprakash etc. Since this was his First film as a Director, as many as 13 actors worked in the film as “Guest Artistes” ! He was so popular that he had to say No to some more actors ready and eager to work as guest Atrtistes in this film. Till this film, it was a sort of record.

The Hero in today’s film was Amarnath. Amarnath (Bharadwaj) is one of the “same name confusions” victims. There were 2 Pt. Amarnath Music Directors, 1 actor Amar, 1 actor Amarnath and 1 actor/Director (K.) Amarnath. This Amarnath was born in Hafizabad, in Gujaranwala district of Punjab (Now in Pakistan) in 1922. He started acting in 1939 with Kidar Sharma’s “Dil hi to hai”. Graduating from doing small roles he was made the Leading Man in Dalsukh Pancholi’s film “Patjhad”, started in 1947 opposite Meena (Shorey). Pancholi had to flee Lahore due to Partition riots, but he carried the negatives of Patjhad. Though the film was censored in India in 1948, it seems it was never released.

Amarnath starred as Hero in many other films,like Naghma E Sehra-45, Papiha re-48, Barsat ki ek raat-48, Swayam sidha-49, Nai Bhabhi-50, Kamal ke phool-50, Sheesh Mahal-50, Jalte Deep-50, Johri-51, Nai zindagi-51 , Nirmohi-52, Nirmal-52, Izzat-52, Bahu Beti-53, Nav Durga-53, Toofan-54, Danka-54 etc. Then he switched over to side roles. In all, he worked in 81 films (CITWF data). His last film was Kaun ho tum-70.

Now something about the film’s Music Director….Ustaad Waheed Khan was a well known and respected player of Sitar and Surbahar. His place in the Etawah Gharana was high up. He had 3 sons. Bande Hassan,Hafiz khan and Aziz Khan. Waheed khan was very keen that his sons should continue his profession,earn a name and shine in classical music of Etawah Gharana. He thought working for music in films was below their dignity and a shame. Bande Hassan specialised in vocal music and became a famous qawali exponent. Second son Hafiz khan,after initial training in classical music turned to film singing,without father’s knowledge. Not only that,he also accepted the pen name of Mastana-awarded by composer Meer Sahib- to hide his identity from father. The third son Aziz Khan also went the film way,using the name Aziz Hindi sometimes.

Though Aziz Khan did not continue his family profession,he ensured that his son Pervez took the training and became an International Sitarist,settling in USA. Even son of Pervez- Shakir became a famous Sitarist. he continues the Etawah gharana tradition now.

A senior RMIM member Mr. Jayraman reported in 2008 that he had traced and found and met the only son of Hafiz khan Mastana,in Mahim,Mumbai. His name was Zaheer aka Alla Rakha. The son confirmed all the above facts and also that Aziz Khan was Aziz Hindi.

Though this fact was confirmed, books like ‘ Dhunon ki yatra’ (Pankaj Raag) mentioned Aziz Khan and Aziz Hindi as two different persons. Though the book was published in 2006, he can not be blamed for this, however. But since it is mentioned in a book, for many readers this wrong information is ‘authentic’ and this is quoted by many in their writings. This is because the findings of Mr. Jayaraman did not get enough publicity widely.

Aziz Hindi gave music to 17 films and composed 127 songs. His first film as an MD was Pandit ji-46 and the last one was Chalta Purja-58. Then he retired and migrated to US to be with his son.

Today’s song is a good song. I liked it. You may also like it…

Today’s song is from an obscure film-Dhola Maru-1956. The film was produced by and under the banner of Cine Workers’ Society, Bombay. It was directed by N R Acharya and the music was provided by S K Pal – for whom this film was his swan song. This was his last film as MD. All the 11 songs of the film were written by Bharat Vyas. The cast was Usha Kiran, Pradeep Kumar, Achala Sachdev, Rehana, Sapru, S Nazir, Kumkum and many others including 5 actresses named as Miss Pammi, Miss Usha, Miss Hemlata, Miss Hansa and Miss Sarita as well as a guest artiste- Ulhas.

” Unity in Diversity” was a favourite slogan of Nehru. Truly, there is no other country in the world having such a diverse population and area. The biggest surviving Democracy in the world has 28 states and 9 Union Territories. Our constitution mentions 22 official languages, including Urdu and Sanskrit. In this vast country about 30 languages are spoken, each by more than 3 million people, 120 languages are spoken by more than 10000 people and about 1600 spoken languages and with script- both mixed. In addition, 7 major and several other religions too.

With so much of diversity of languages, religions and cultures, it is a wonder that India has survived for thousands of years. The main factor is the binding of Indian Culture and Tolerance. It is interesting to recall that, just prior to getting Independence, Winston Churchill and many other world leaders had predicted that within a short period, India will disintegrate into pieces. Contrary to their wishful thinking, Indian people have come out stronger in last 75 years.

Due to the diversity, there are separate Folk lores in almost every state. Love stories are the major contributors. Like the famous Laila-Majnu and Romeo-Juliet, every state has its own Love story. Even our Mythology has thrilling love stories, Like Uttara- Abhimanyu, Dushant-Shakuntala, Arjun-Subhadra etc.

For love stories, Punjab and Sindh lead all the way. You have several such stories as – Sohni Mahiwal, Heer-Ranja, Sassi-Punnu, Monal-Rano, Umar-Marvi, Lila-Chanesar, Noori-Tamchi, Dhaj-Rorkumar and Mirza-Sahiban are some of the most popular love stories of Punjab and Sindh.

Like I said, in other regions too, there are Love stories like Jodha -Akbar, Salim-Anarkali, Bajirao-Mastani, Prithviraj-Sanyogita, Amrapali-Bimbisar, Mumal-Mahendra, Amaravathy-Ambikapathy (south-Tamil) etc.

There was yet another popular Folk-Lore of Lovers in the states of Rajasthan, M.P., Chhattisgarh and Gujarat and that is the story of Prince Dhola and Princess Maru. Unlike the Punjab Folk-Lores of Lovers, Dhola Maru has several versions, especially Rajasthani and Chhattisgarhi versions. Several Books and stories as well as Folk songs were written on Dhola-Maru. There was a Gujarati Hit film Dhola-Maru-1983.

( When I had first heard the name of Dhola-Maru, I was reminded of the Japanese steamship Kamagota Maru, which had carried about 300 Sikh and other Indians, who tried to enter Canada. They were refused and sent back to India. On reaching Calcutta, they were refused entry as they were from Hongkong. There was a fight and in the ensuing firing, hundreds were killed. This was known throughout the world.)

Dhola – Maru story took place somewhere in the 15th century. However this is a Happy ending Love story, unlike most Punjabi tragedies.

The Rajasthani version of the story is-

The Legend of Dhola and Maru is the Indian version of Romeo-Juliet saga. The princess Maru was from a place called Pugal near Bikaner while Dhola was the young and handsome prince of Gwalior. A terrible drought in Pugal made Maru’s(then 2 years old) father shift to Gwalior, which was ruled by his friend, the father of Dhola. He stayed there for three years and before leaving for his hometown, the two kings each promised to get their children married to each other. However, after a span of 20 years all promises were forgotten and Maru was betrothed to a man called Umra. But destiny prevailed, and bard from Pugal who had travelled to Gwalior sang at the royal court about the childhood betrothal of Dhola and Maru. After listening to the song Dhola fell hook, line and sinker for the virtuous princess Maru. With love in his eyes Dhola began wooing Maru who also fell in love with the handsome Dhola. Where two hearts collide there has to be an outcome, and so they decided to run away.

Umra came to know about their plans and went after them with his brother sumra. The eloping lovers on their Camel with their bows arrows were no match for the Umra-Sumra brothers who had guns. However, they were able to evade the evil brothers and took refuge in a forest. Unfortunately Dhola was bitten by a snake and died on the spot, Maru, thus cheated by her lover, proceeded to weep the death. Luck favoured Maru and her cries were heard by Lord Shiva and consort Parvati. Parvati requested her husband to revive Dhola and thus by divine intervention the lovers were united to live happily ever after.

There are some differences in the Chhattisgarhi versions, where in prince Dhola gets married to Rewa for 12 years, after which,he goes for Maru etc.

In Indian films, there were some actresses who were earmarked to do the roles of Mothers and Grandmothers. Some of them were Leela Chitnis, Durga Khote, Leela Mishra, Deena Pathak, Nirupa Roy, Achala Sachdev and few others. While Leela Mishra and Deena Pathak seemed to be born to do such roles, most others were Heroines in their Hey-days. Achala Sachdev was a prominent actress, who was highly respected in the industry – only till she was in circulation. Once she retired from films, no one bothered about her and she died absolutely a lonely death.

Achala Sachdev ( 3-5-1920 to 30-4-2012) (original name Rajinder)’s name is permanently conjoined with a mother’s role. She did a mother’s role when she was very young and since then-more than a heroine- she has been seen either as a sister or Mother in films. In her earliest film ‘Dilruba’-50 she was Dev Anand’s sister and later in many films she was a fixed mother of Dev Anand.

She worked in All India Radio, Lahore,she came to Delhi after the Partition and continued her job in All India Radio, till her first film. She acted in 181 Hindi films, 3 Punjabi films and 1 Gujarati film, in addition to 1 uncompleted Bangla film. She acted in few television serials and FD documentaries too.

In her early years she had got married to Gyan Sachdeva. She begot one son and one daughter from him. Her son Jyotin, a business consultant, settled in US and Daughter was married in Bombay. When she could not pull on, she divorced her husband. After 12 years of loneliness she fell in love and married an American Clifford Douglas Peters, who was an Engineer and ran an Electronics factory in Poona. She stopped accepting new films after 1976 and then shifted to Poona.

After her second husband died, she shifted from her Bungalow in Bhosari, near Poona to a specious flat in Hadapsar area of Poona. She had completed all films on hand ,but due to insistence of family friend Yash Chopra, she acted in some of his films- notably ‘Dilwale dulhaniya le jaayenge’-95. Though her last film was ‘ Dahak ‘-98, her last released film was Suno sasur ji-2003.

During her heydays, she was very friendly with Sunil Dutt and Nargis, Mona Dev Anand ( kalpana kartik), Meena kumari, Saira Bano and her mother Naseem Bano. She was very punctual during her shootings. Once while working in a Rajesh Khanna film, she had to wait for him for 4 hours, with all make up done. When this continued to happen for next 10 days, she left the film and went back to Poona. Rajesh Khanna wrote an apology letter to her and then only she came back to complete the film.

Once she was in Poona, she was all alone. No one from film industry ever contacted her in her last 40 years. She was very generous. She had donated 25 lakhs to an NGO, Janseva Foundation to start ‘Achala Sachdev Institute of Education”. She also gave 15 Lakhs to Dr. H.V.Desai Eye Hospital for a ward construction. In her last days,she even donated her flat also to the NGO Janseva Foundation.

She was sick for last 6 months and was looked after by the NGO. Admitted to Poona General Hospital ICU, she got Paralysis, lost her vision and then lost her life on 30-4-2012. A highly successful film star with lots of money, but she was neglected by her own son and daughter. Above all, in last 40 years in Poona, not one soul from the film world met her. What was pathetic was, when she was admitted in I.C.U., her attending doctor, Dr. Mehta sent messages to Yash Chopra and others in Film industry, but none came or even inquired and she died a lonely death.

Ek samay Dushyant thhe

mohit ho Dushyant ne

Shakuntala ke sang kiya
jhat gandarv vivaah

din beete aur jug beete ae ae ae ae
din beete aur jug beete
bhookh bhaye behaal

roye dukhi Shakuntala
roye dukhi Shakuntala
khabar na li

bhooh bhaye behaal

band karo ye geet

rewa sang raman

maruwan bisraai
maruwan ho maruwan ??
bharman hoi

Hullo Atuldom

Na Chaahoon Sona Chaandi” was the first time I took note of this roly-poly cute- faced actor. He played Braganza, a head-fisherman and father to ‘Bobby’ in 1973. Subsequently I saw him as mama to the character played by Hema Malini in ‘Aap Beeti’ in 1976, a pathan who helps Manoj Kumar in ‘Shor’ (1972), a sardar who was a good Samaritan in ‘Roti Kapda aur Makaan’ (1974).

Then one day on chitrahaar or it could have been chaayageet on Doordarshan I saw a black and white song “Patli Kamar Hai” where this particular actor was super good-looking which was enough to sweep the lady he was wooing, off her feet. He came across as a dancer with a reasonable sense of rhythm. That is when I was informed by my dad that Premnath was a lead actor in many movies and rattled of names like ‘Aab-e-Hayaat’ (1955), ‘Baadal’ (1951), ‘Aag’ (1948) etc. and also sang a few of his songs from movies where he was the hero. Recently, not so long ago, I too saw a black-n-white movie, where Premnath played a ‘supposed’ poor boy who falls in love with a princess and helps the king regain his kingdom, the movie was an Arabian nights kind of story. Think it was ‘Saaqi’ (1952).

So I have loved movies where Premnath was Sir Juda (‘Karz’), Yamraaj (‘Lok Parlok’), IG Khanna (‘Kalicharan’), Bajrang Bahadur (‘Aap Beeti’), Shankar Dada (‘Dharam Karam’), father of a bevy of beauties (‘Ishk Ishk Ishk’, and the most memorable of them all – Rai Saab Bhupendra Singh in ‘Johnny Mera Naam’.  Thinking of him today on his birth anniversary he would have been 93.

There is another celeb of yesteryears who has her birthday today. And I wrote a post for her last month itself where I wrote this “I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 October 2019).’’ God only knows what I was thinking as I wrote that post and sent it hurriedly to Atul ji for posting. And the good man that he is, he posted it within an hour of my sending it. But the error was pointed out in the comments section by Partha Chanda ji and Prakashchandra ji. The next day Nahm ji, after reading the comments, messaged me to inquire if I was planning one more post for the actual birthdate and also to see if the song choices were clashing. I assured her that the choices don’t clash as we have a vast library to choose from.  I must say that we had an extra song and extra good wishes for our much-loved Helen.

As my practice has been over the years, I have managed to find a song which features both the birthday celebs. It is from the 1979 release ‘Magroor’’ which starred Shatrughan Sinha, Vidya Sinha, Premnath, Helen, Deven Verma, Nadira, Narendranath, Paintal, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Jagdish Raj etc. The film had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi wrote the lyrics. Playback singers were Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Anuradha Paudwal, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Mahendra Kapoor. All the 5 songs were duets.

Todays’ song is a club song where we see Helen (Rukhsaana) being wooed by a bunch of suitors (extras) and Premnath joining in on the fun. He is bodily lifted out of the dance floor by the cops at the end of the song. Playback for this song is by Asha and Mannada.

Blog Day : 4018 Post No. : 15126

Throughout the year, this blog notes anniversaries of various artistes. We celebrate their birth anniversaries, we remember, and observe with respect, their death anniversaries.

We occasionally also celebrate birthdays of Atulites here.

But there is one date that we all celebrate every year with a lot of love.

And that is this blog’s own birthday.

Yes, today, the 19th of July is the birthday of this blog.

This is the date, 11 years ago, that Atul, who started this blog, posted its very first song “mile na phool to kaanton se dosti kar li”. A beautiful song, written by Kaifi Azmi saab, composed by Roshan, and rendered in Rafisaab’s voice.

What an auspicious start to the blog!

Since then, now a veteran of over 15000 songs, this blog continues to go strong, adding more treasures to its already abundant treasure-chest, and attracting visitors from around the globe.

At last count, the number of hits on the blog was close to 12 million!

Clearly, this blog has established itself as the go-to source for HFM lovers, especially those interested in accurate song lyrics, and with a desire to engage themselves also with a write-up associated with the song.

Over these years, starting as a one-song-a-day blog, it has evolved into multiple-songs-a-day, with a whole lot of features added to it over this period of time.

During the course of this journey, another very important development (at least for some of us here), is the formation of this group called Atulites.

It is nothing fancy as such. Atul started this journey 11 years ago, and there have been many who have visited the blog and enjoyed its content. But a few of us, have been regulars here over the years, either writing comments, or posts. We have developed a bond over the years, thanks to the blog. Many of us have had an opportunity to meet each other in person. Since it all started with Atul, we call ourselves Atulites. 🙂

As someone who has known this blog from day one, it is a great joy for me to see this blog now complete 11 years.

I’ve said this many times – but I will say it again – this blog is unlike any other blog out there. Most blogs don’t last beyond a few months or years. And even then, the posting on these blogs is sporadic. Maybe a post every few weeks, or even months.

This is mainly because it takes a lot of effort and time to post regular content on a blog. Yes, if it’s earning significant money for the author, or promotes him or her in any way, that might be motivation to keep posting. But otherwise, it loses steam, and ends up neglected.

Here, Atul has ensured that this blog has posts almost every single day since it was started. Sure, there have been the odd days without posts, but these have been very few over this 11-year period. This is truly remarkable – and is a testament to Atul’s dedication and discipline.

We must remember, and stress here, that this blog is a “labour of love” for Atul. Had it been a commercial venture, one can understand so much time and effort spent on it. But for Atul, it has just been his passion and love that has kept the blog going for all this while, with daily updates.

I must add here that, in the last few years, Atul has been helped in this process by the one and only Sudhir ji. Together they form a great team, ensuring the blog is always buzzing.
I can’t thank both of them enough for what they do for the blog.

Then there are the other contributors also who enrich the blog greatly by their contributions. Arunji is the first name that comes to mind, but there is a whole host of others – they know who they are. 🙂 Everyone has contributed in his, or her, own way to the blog.

All in all, it has been a wonderful 11-year journey. I am very glad to have been part of it, to have learnt so many songs I’d never heard before, and to have met so many wonderful people, thanks solely to this blog.

So a big thank you to Atul for this.

Even as I type this, it has just struck me that the IPL also started in 2008. The final was played on 1st June 2008 – and this blog started on 19th July 2008. I wonder whether there is a connection. Did the IPL inspire Atul to start this blog? 🙂

Now, quickly avoiding the brickbats coming my way for posing that last question, am moving on to the song for today.

I wanted a fun, lively, song because it is a happy occasion.

And, as usual, I went looking for a song from the era I am most comfortable with, while hunting for songs. That is, the 1970s. Often I come across a song that might not have been all that famous, but is special to me because I remember it from that time, and it brings back memories.

Today’s song is one such. It is from the film Dharkan (1972).

Now this film is one I distinctly remember seeing in my childhood. I remember liking it a lot too at that time. It had a different type of storyline.

From what I remember, the story was about a man travelling with his friend by train, to meet another long-lost friend (who happens to be very rich). This friend in the train gets greedy and kills this man. He then poses as him, and meets the long-lost friend, hoping to swindle him of his wealth. Of course, he needs to be careful not to get exposed.

I don’t remember the details now, but after some initial success, he begins to arouse suspicions about his identity.

The picturisation of this song reflects one such situation. As we can see, Helen and Sanjay Khan are taunting Roopesh Kumar, hinting to him that they know what he has done.

I need to see this film again – though it’s quite possible I might not like it now. 🙂 It happens sometimes that you see a film that you’d last seen decades ago – and it doesn’t have the same appeal anymore.

The moment I heard this song though, I immediately remembered the movie. It is classic Asha Bhosle, though the composer is not RD Burman, but Ravi. I remember this song very well from that time, though I’m not sure if it was popular then. The most popular song of this film was “main to chala, jidhar chale rasta” (which has already been posted here). This is the second song of the film to be posted here.

The video ends a bit abruptly, so the audio is included.

I hope you enjoy this song.

Here’s wishing the blog a very happy birthday – and many more to come.

———————————————
Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)- Song number 5
———————————————
Today is 8 february 2019. When I looked back at the movies whose songs were covered in the blog ten years ago on 8 february 2009, I found that seven songs from seven different movies were covered on that day. Six of these movies have been YIPPEED by now. The only movie, which still has a few songs left to be covered in the blog is “Gomti Ke Kinaatre”(1972).

“Gomti Ke Kinaare”(1972) was directed by Sawan Kumar for Mercury Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Meena Kumari, Mumtaz, Sameer, Rehman, Agha, Helen, Paintal, Asit Sen, Shyama, Chandrima Bhaduri, Tuntun, Daisy Irani, Master Alankar, Randheer, Sultan Mazhar, Manorama, Rajan Haksar, Nasreen, Lalita Kumari, Madhu, Aarti, Kamal, I S Johar etc in it, with special appearances by Jalal Agha and Mukri.

The movie had five songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

This song is sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The so0ng is picturised on Agha and Helen. It appears to be a fantasy song where Agha has a Jin of Alladin Chirag. The Jin, on the wishes of Agha makes Helen appear to perform a dance. That is my understanding of the picturisation of this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what is happening in this song.

The movie hade its debut in the blog on this day in 2009 when I was based at Jabalpur. Next song was posted in 2011 when I was based at Nagpur, and the third song was posted in 2017 when I was based at Izatnagar, Bareilly. Now I am covering the fourth song from the movie while I am based at another new place.

The movie has another song left in it. Have no fear. Now that I am aware that only one song is left in this movie, I will cover the song without waiting to get transferred to another place. 🙂

Missing Films of 1960s – 79
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The 1960s missing films train continues to chug along. 🙂

In this episode, we bring on board a very obscure film from 1964 – ‘Teen Dost’. The film itself is quite forgotten and the songs of this film are quite a rarity. So far only one record of this film has appeared in public domain, meaning only two songs of this film are available, out of the five songs listed in the Geet Kosh.

The film is directed by Joseph Taliath, for a banner which is simply named as Talkies, from Madras. The available list of actors is very limited – Anand, Hemlata, Ashokan, Kamini, and Ramdas. All songs of this film are written by Prem Dhawan, and the music is composed by TR Papa – a name that is completely obscure, and appears for the first time on our blog.

An exchange between lovers. No video clips are available. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers, who may have seen this film, to please add more information if available, about this song and this film.

A lively song, listen and enjoy.

Song – Ho Gayi Baalma, Re Mein Tori Baalma  (Teen Dost) (1964) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Manna Dey, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – TR Papa

Lyrics

ho gayi baalma

o gori chhod ke aa ja oonche mehlon ko
ho gayi baalma
re main tori baalma
haaye tu ne kiya mera dil chori baalma

tu zara dekh hamen bol ke
jaan bhi de den tere pyaar mein
dildaar badh ke hum se jaanemann
na mil sakega ji sansaar mein
na hum ko yun tadpa
na mujh ko yun bharma
mann kyon tujh se ghabraaye
main kya boloon zaalma
ho gayi baalma
re main tori baalma
haaye tu ne kiya mera dil chori baalma
ho gayi baalma
re main tori baalma
haaye tu ne kiya mera dil chori baalma

तू ज़रा देख हमें बोल के

“Anokhi Ada”(1973) was produced and directed by Kundan Kumar for Kundan Films, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Rekha, Vinod Khanna, Mehmood, Padma Khanna, Nazeer Hussain, Manmohan Krishn, Kanhaiyya Lal, Brahmchaari, Praveen Pal, Keshav Rana, Sanjana, Shetty, Abhimanyu Sharma, Narbada Shankar, Anand Joshi, Deenanath, Ajit Soni, Bihari, Vijendar Bannerji etc with guest appearances by Manmohan and Jeevan.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs were covered in the blog. Here are the details of these four songs:-

Here is the fifth and final song from “Anokhi Ada”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is picturised on Mehmood and Padma Khanna. I have not watched the movie so I have no idea what is going on in the picturisation. My guess is that this song is past of a comic side plot of the movie where Mehmood eats a tablet to become younger but ends up becoming older. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

With this song, “Anokhi Ada”(1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Jawaani tera bolbaala (Anokhi Ada)(1973)Singers-Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics- Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Chorus

paani ka ik pyaala
jawani tera bolbaala

kya ho gaye re saanwariya
wo baal kaale kaale
kya ho gaye re saanwariya
wo baal kaale kaale
dekhe nahin jaate re sainya
ye gaal dheele dhaale
wo roop rang saajan
kisne utaar daala

jawaani tera bolbaala
budhaape tera munh kaala

chaaha thha jawaan hoke main
har naari ko sunder dekhoon
jo chehra dikhe na baahar
main parde ke andar dekhoon
is liye khaayi thhi goli
lekin ye kisko khabar thhi
wo zaalim goli kar degi
yoon mera deewaala
jawaani tera bolbaala
budhaape tera munh kaala

chaahe to jatan main kar doon
aaja balamwa pyaaare
chaahe to jatan main kar doon
aaja balamwa pyaare
garwa mere lag lag ke
phir se jawaan ho jaa re
ye sir ka baal sajna
ho jaaye phir se kaala

jawaani tera bolbaala
budhaape tera munh kaala
jawaani tera bolbaala
budhaape tera munh kaala

“Miss India”(1957) was directed by I S Johar for Rawal Pictures, Bombay. This movie had Nargis, Pradeep Kumar, Nishi, Shammi, Tuntun, Sheela Vaz, Minoo Mumtaz, I S Johar, Pran etc in it.

Mr. K Satish Shenoy, while writing about an earlier song of this movie had given the story of this song. Here is what he had to say about the movie:-

The movie “Miss India” is not about a beauty contest winner. The movie refers to the leading lady as “Miss India”, because the character is about an educated, self reliant, righteous young lass who fights for her rights, against injustice and comes out a winner.

Nargis graduates as a lawyer. Her father puts out a matrimonial advt asking for a match for the educated lady without expecting dowry. An imposter (Pradeep Kumar) marries her & absconds, abandoning her, & taking away her jewellery. She comes to the city, in search of him, & to reform him & continue her married life (& not to catch him & punish him- –after all she is a Bhararatiya Naari ! 🙂 .

After few fruitless days she finds him, but he is unable to recognise her (since he ran away without lifting her ‘ghoongat’.! –That is typical Bollywood!). At this point she befriends him in the guise of a young lad, so as to buy time to reform him. This disguise also helped her find a job.

To cut a long story short, she manages to make him realise his misdeeds and in the end they unite. In the final scenes there is a court case where all riddles are resolved and judge notes the trouble Nargis has gone through and says she is a role model and should be referred to as “Miss India”!!

“Miss India”(1957) had ten songs in it. Nine of them have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the songs that have already been covered:-

Here is the tenth and final song from “Miss India”(1957). The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

Only the audio of this song appears to be available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Though the singers, lyricist and music director are all legends and they all have had long and distinguished careers, but it may surprise some to know that this is the only Manna Dey-Asha Bhonsle duet created by the lyricist-MD combination of Rajinder Krishan and S D Burman. In fact, Rajinder Krishna and S d Burman worked together only in five movies. This movie was the last occasion when the came toether in a movie.

With this song, “Miss India”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Today’s Shiv Bhajan is for the 4th Shraavan Monday – as celebrated in south, west and some eastern states of India. This bhajan is from film ‘Shuk Rambha’ (1953), made by Chandrakala Pictures and is produced and directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The lead actors were Anjali Devi (from south) and Bharat Bhushan. In the cast of this film, you will find a name Rajkumar. Most ‘knowledgeable’ sites and writers treat this actor same as the famous dialogue master Raaj Kumar ‘Jaani’. However, this is not correct. This Rajkumar is different.
