8th September – Birthday of Asha Bhonsle
————————————————————-

There are 25 songs tagged as ‘Tasweer’ (https://atulsongaday.me/category/tasweer-song/) song in the blog. Some of the stellar songs have missed the tag and have given a miss to the tag of ‘Tasweer’. I have listed a few such songs which I can refer to off-hand:

Tasweer Banaata Hoon Tasweer Nahin Banti

Ye Zulf Kaisi Hai

I feel as if some more significant songs are missing from my list above as well as the tagged page. So, the list is incomplete.

A ‘tasveer’ is something which tells a story. Be it a still image, a painting, a motion picture or mural. Imaginary or factual, reflection in reverse or converse. Not always needing a camera to capture it, just a glance is indelible sometimes. Moments captured in memory forever.

Some old timers in the film industry refer to movie as a ‘Tasveer’. I have forever called movies as ‘picture’. We never went to see film or movie, it was always ‘picture’. Some convent educated friends referred to them as ‘movie’ and some Kendriya Vidayala aluminis called them films. This is my own experiences, not a comment on anyone word preferences. In Urdu print, it is ‘film’ and in Hindi it is called ‘chal chitra’ translated as moving picture. So, the films moved and talked and told stories. But to tell a story, sometimes a still image is also enough. Technically, film is a roll on which the reflections are captured. What we watch on the screen is a projection of images captured on film rolls.

On the other hand, sometimes the story a ‘tasveer’ tells is incomplete for being one dimensional. The scene, the background, lighting, the capturer’s intentions, all have an impact on the story it tells. Even a panoramic photo fails capture the photographer. So, the millennials invented ‘selfies’ so that they can capture their own stories.

In our times, we have seen numerous such photos which have made history, given cause to monumental events, made unknown non-entities of the world into famous people. Also, photos which captured the events for posterity, stills which make us wonder at the creativity and unfathomable and unrecordable capability of creator of such beauty, and fabulous natural phenomena. Over the decades, there have been photos of apathy of humans around the world, which made humanity hang its heads in shame. Glory, shame, pain, ecstasy, wonder, happiness, surprise, loss and victory and many more emotions and expressions are recorded.
The camera is mechanical equipment after all. It has no feelings, so no sympathy with the subject it is capturing. It also reveals things, the subject wants to hide sometimes. I must grant it, it is a capable equipment, it captures the expression in the eyes of the subject. Mischief, despair, jealousy, pain, love, gaiety, you name it, the camera has seen it all.

I am glad to report that sometimes in gathering of friends, we forget to take selfies or pics… then we lament it on whatsapp that we didn’t click any. Better leave somethings for the mind and heart to capture. Is there a hard disk which can store as much as a human mind?

The ‘tasveer’ category song being presented here is from the film “Basant” (1960). The following 11 songs of this film are already posted in the blog.

Out of 14 songs of this film, 11 are Rafi-Asha duets and trio with SD Batish. Remaining 3 are solos by Asha Bhonsle. Incidentally, I have noticed that in the blog we spell the surname of Asha as ‘Bhonsle’, where as every where else that I can see it is Bhosle. Eleven duets in a film is a record, second such record is in the film ‘Halla Gulla’ (1954), where this same pair is singing all 9 songs.

Here is the song to celebrate the 89th Birthday of Asha Bhonsle, penned by Shewan Rizvi and composed by OP Nayyar.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 71
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 19 July 2012) saw five songs from five different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6265 Allah megh de paani de Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein(1977) Movie YIPPEED by now
6266 Chupke se dil de de nahin te shor mach jaayegaa Maryada(1971) Movie YIPPEED by now

6269 Duniya mein rehna hai to kaam karo pyaare Haathi Mere Saathi (1971) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see that four movies (out of five) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago have since been YIPPEED.

The only movie from ten years ago that remains unYIPPEED is “Lekh”(1949).

“Lekh”(1949) was produced by Mehta and Raghupat Roy and directed by G Rakesh for Liberty Art Productions, Bombay. The movie had Suraiyya, Sitara aka Sitaara Devi, Motilal, Eeshu Jagirdar, Cuckkoo, Anand Pal, Suraiyya chaudhary, Sudheer, Gurdasram,Chamanpuri, Amena Bai, Rekha, Sarita Veer, Kanwal, Vaatsa,Pittooo, Aatma Prakash etc in it.

The movie had 15 songs in it. Ten songs have been covered so far.

Here is the eleventh song from “Lekh”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Krish Dayal.

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

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Dil Ka Raaja -1972#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Dil Ka Raaja’.

This is another movie which I came across while presenting the ‘missing movies of 1972’ on the blog. Though this movie made its debut on the blog way back on 14.10.2014, only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog. I do not remember to have listened to other songs from this movie. That is the reason for this post where today we will enjoy the second song from this movie.

Music for this movie is also composed by R.D. Burman.

‘Dil Ka Raaja-1972’ was directed by P. Madhwan for ‘Nadiadwala Associates, Bombay’. It was produced by A.A. Nadiadwala.

It had Raj Kumar, Leena Chandavarkar, Ajit, Bindu, Jagdeep, Indrani Mukherjee, Randhir, Meena T., Sheikh, Surendra Rahi, Manjeet, Omkar, Pandit Iqbal, Jankidas, Uma Dutt, Rajesh, Maqbool, Master Anil, Master Ripal, and Waheeda Rehman (in special appearance).

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Balamurugan. Dialogues of this movie were written by Kaushal Bharti.

Editing of this movie was done by Babubhai Thakkar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.11.1972.

As I mentioned above one song from this movie has been posted on the blog earlier and that was presented by Shri Satyajit Rajurkar on the blog.

In his post (which is his passionate post about Rafi Saab) he had also mentioned about the story of this movie which I am reproducing below from his post.

This movie is about two brothers who try to retrieve the lost glory of their “king” father through hard work and sincerity. After generously donating all the wealth accumulated by three generations of his family, Ramnagar-based Raja Vichitra Singh (Raaj Kumar), faces humiliation at the hands of Thakur Gajendra Singh (Ajit) when he is unable to pay a dowry for his sister, Gauri (Indrani Mukherjee). He does fulfill his promise by mortgaging his mansion, Raghupathi Bhavan, but the shock kills his wife, Lakshmi (Waheeda Rehman). Humiliated, with no one coming forward to help him, he leaves Ramnagar, along with his three children, Raja (Raaj Kumar), Bajrang (Jagdedep), and Vijaya (Meena T) and re-locates to Bombay, hoping to accumulate Three Lakh Rupees, so that he can get the Bhavan back as well as restore his honour. The rest of the story is about how Vichitra Singh, now a tonga driver and his children, who end up working as a coolies and labourers, try and save the money to enable them to get the mansion back.

The movie is a remake of the A Nageshwar Rao starrer “Dharma Daata” (1970).

‘Dil Ka Raaja’ had five songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed to music by Rahul Dev Burman.

Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Sundar hoon aisi main jidhar chaloon Asha Bhonsle, chorus
02 Sundar ho aisi tum jidhar chalo ek baar Mohd Rafi
03 O rajeshwari … badi hai shohrat tumhaare honthhon tumhaari aankhon ki Mohd Rafi,Asha Bhonsle
04 Jinke paas haathi ghoda, unke paas dil hai thodaa Rafi, Asha,Manna Dey
05 Jaao jaao tum bhi jaao, samajhte kya ho Mohd Rafi 14.10.2014

Today’s song is sung by Rafi Saab and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is performed by two pairs i.e. Raj Kumar – Leena Chandavarkar, and Jagdeep – Bindu. (Rajkumar and Jagdeep play brothers in this movie).

This is a nice entertaining song sung by Rafi Saab and Asha Bhonsle. I hope readers will enjoy listening and watching this song.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

Memories of visit to London in September 2021

This post has been a long time in arriving actually.  We went to UK not as tourist, but to see family, mainly the daughter of the family and the new grand-daughter.  We came back to Mumbai in October’21.  Lot of water has flown down the bridge since then and the grand daughter is growing by leaps and bounds since we were with her, by the grace of Almighty.

Upon returning, I found myself under pressure to find a song good enough, to write a post covering the visit.  I looked, searched and watched, found many songs, newer ones mainly filmed in the UK, and some also showing locations of the London city.  It has been a favorite location for Hindi film picturization of film makers since the 60’s, i.e. when the trend of filming on location really started in the industry. Unfortunately, I was less than satisfied with the newer songs, and characteristically, was reluctant to post a new song, which had song/dance, band/bajaa/baraat routine. The songs were quite good in their own genre, I might yet post at least one of them.

And all this while, Avinash ji has been doing a series of the songs of 70’s decade and his posts appear regularly. Now Avinash ji has also acquired a new degree, I have deduced from the Peevisie’s Mom’s post.  Congratulations to the happy parents and best wishes for the daughter and the son-in-law.

One lucky day, while browsing the YouTube, I found this Rafi-Asha duet from the film ‘Professor Pyarelal’ (1981).  It is a happy sounding romantic song and a much heard on the radio, which makes it a dear familiar friend, in my opinion.  The song is filmed in London, mostly around the city center area, around Thames River, Westminster Abbey, the London Clock Tower etc.  The famous London Tower Bridge is also visible in all its centuries old splendor.

Centuries old splendor is the term I was looking for to describe the architectural beauty of London city and its many monuments.  It is evident that it is one of the oldest surviving cities of the world.  And it has managed to maintain its beauty and its instinct for survival, adaptability to the modern times and modern architectural and infrastructure requirements can only be applauded and wondered at.

My search for a suitable song for this post ended the day I saw this song on YouTube.  But the actual writing kept getting deferred.  I thought this was a late 70’s song, and was apprehensive that Avinash ji or someone else may post this song and I will lose the opportunity to write this post.  Now I find that this movie is from 1981.  But the songs were released and popular for some years before the movie eventually released after production delays.

Getting back to the brief about our visit. As soon as we arrived in UK, various scheduling and planning for visits to different places were underway.  My uncle, our host, insisted upon a visit to London city.  The planning for the London city was so short, due to the leave constraints of my son-in-law, that I was on the verge of postponing it to the next visit.  But the window of opportunity, and my son’s contention that everybody is going to ask, “hey you went to England and didn’t see London!”, decided in favor of the visit, so it happened.

London and some other landmark locations of England are a part of the consciousness. Just as we exist, these buildings – man made creations – also exist, and are famous for the events, known as historical turning points. Unlike other major cities of the modern world, London has seen wars too and has been destroyed and built again many times over, from what ever history I have read about it. England, on the whole has had a most violent history, in the medieval and pre-medieval eras. The fault lines between the Welsh, Scots, Irish and Brits, is evident even today in the various ruins and forts, and castles.  But they did learn their lesson that divided they fall, decided to unite at some given point in history to conquer the world.  I think it was the threat of the Romans that eventually united the British Isles. The glue could only have been an ideology of self-interest, binding the factions despite bitter animosity and gruesome wars behind them. Maybe the Protestant church had something to do with it, so Britain rose to great heights as a dominant civilization in the world and they were motivated enough to write and re-write the worlds history, literally and figuratively.  British historians are also a notorious breed.  Their language, is the dominant language in the world for centuries now.  The rise of the British Empire took centuries to happen, where as the fall was swift in the 19th and 20th century.  But the cultural and linguistic dominance continues to remain on top now, and for the foreseeable future too in the 21st century.  Willingness to adapt to other cultures and language habits is said to be a major factor in the success of the English language.   Historically speaking, the Roman empire was greater and more successful in the world, before the new found land of Americas.  But the impact is all but lost in today’s world.  The geopolitical scenario keeps changing with time and passing of centuries. These changes happen faster now in a matter of decades.  There are catalysts recognizable and visible to these power shifts. This is a very heavy and deep topic, so better to leave it here.

Yes, I had to chalk out a fool proof plan and schedule, wherein a few places I wanted to visit, were not missed.  Lords cricket ground and Thames River cruise were two things I was not willing to miss.  So we worked around this, to do the Lords tour, city ride in the red bus, short cruise of Thames river, Madame Tussaud’s, Harrods, a long walk inside the Hyde Park, especially where equestrian clubs are situated, visit to Science Museum and Natural History Museum (free entry), Bakers Street and Sherlock Holmes Museum, etc.  We gave a miss to Tower of London and Buckingham Palace tours, as they were more time consuming and also expensive. The London Eye is also a popular choice, which we could not take.  Other tourist locations in UK also have a giant wheel rides, as an attraction. The Giant wheel is a common feature in other places, like Dubai, Sydney, etc. I am wondering why we don’t have a thing like this in Mumbai.

We were based in Manchester, so could visit the nearby areas too like Lake District, North Wales, Blackpool, Lancaster, Chester, Preston etc. We passed through Oxford too on our way back from London. When we had arrived in UK, everyone told us the weather is good for only 2-3 days, so enjoy as much as you can, as it is really foul from September onward.  But luckily the weather held for the entire period of our stay, and we had rains to enjoy only in North Wales and for an hour or two in London, while we were riding the red bus and we had to cross the Bridge near Westminster on foot as we missed the stop for the Westminster Pier.  A part of the song I am presenting is filmed on the same bridge, where Zeenat Aman is standing in the middle of the road and crosses to join Dharmendra on the curb. The famous Tower Bridge is now painted in azure blue. I find that the Bridge has been painted blue since 1977, but in the song, it is not looking blue, so the song was filmed before 1977, it would seem.

Some trivia about the film:

This film took so long to complete – five years – and its plot was so convoluted that after director Brij had finished shooting it, nobody could figure out how to put the film together. The producers had then called in Hrishikesh Mukherjee to edit and salvage the film. He was credited prominently in the film’s posters and publicity material.

Astonishingly, no part of the city which is showcased as the beautiful attractions, looks old or dilapidated. All of them look freshly painted and well maintained, except for the bridges on the Thames River and the Westminster Abbey, which is the family church of the British Royals. London is best enjoyed on foot, I was told and I agree. After covering a few miles on foot, in and around Exhibition Street, Marylebone, Kensington, Hyde Park, we can be surprised and find the unexpected. In fact, the most parts of UK are best enjoyed on foot, which is the common consensus. Walking trails are taken as granted in different parts of UK.

I am told that the whole of UK is connected through rivers and canals and one can go from anywhere to anywhere on a boat. I was mentally prepared to be impressed by all that I was going to see in this visit, but was more than impressed and wish to do more trips which include visits to the remaining places in England, Scotland and Wales.

We took a pre-booked guided tour of the Lord’s cricket ground at the MCC.  Seeing the many Indian in the group taking the tour, the guide asked us “Where is Sachin Tendulkar’s home?”.  The common answer was the obvious – Mumbai.  But the guide insisted that “No. Sachin’s home is right here in Marylebone.” No surprises there too, for the evidence is everywhere in London especially, that who can afford to, would prefer to stay in London. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar was here in Mumbai in February 2022, as we all saw him attending the funeral of Lata Mangeshkar.  Incidentally, I could not find Sachin Tendulkar’s name in the list of Test centurions at the Lords. Extensive lists are put up inside the Pavilion, of all centurions and also 5+ wicket takers in an innings.  The guide was in full form and regaled us with a story about the ‘death row’ in the viewers gallery or members gallery.  There are two such galleries, one for the home team and one for the away team. As both India and West Indies are ‘away teams’, I guess the away team gallery was the one, where Kapil Dev stood with the Prudential Cup trophy after his team’s victory in 1983 World Cup. The original Prudential Cup is still there in the small Museum for memorabilia, related to the MCC.

I have read and heard at various places, that London was the favourite place in the world for Rafi Sahab also. He is said to have been fond of the city, as his sons are settled there.

I can go on remembering things and my impressions of the visit, but the post is got to end somewhere. The song being presented in this post is filmed in London on Dharmendra and Zeenat Aman. Rafi Sahab and Asha Bhonsle are giving playback to them in the song written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This duet is typical of the Kalyanji-Anandji style of duet composition, sounding very similar to the Rafi-Asha duet from ‘Qurbani’. We the radio fans, listened to the song in late 70’s, loved and liked it, but had all but forgotten it. Even the links on YouTube are few, with only one video available.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 14#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Rut Rangeeli Aayee’ of the year 1972. This movie is one those still missing movie for the year 1972 on the blog. Today it makes its debut here.

‘Rut Rangeelee Aayee’ was directed by SM Pushkarna for Roshan Films, Bombay. It had Kanan Kaushal, Vijay Sharma, Jayshree T, Bharat Bhushan, Shyama, Brahmachari, Rehman, Nana Palsikar, Ramesh Deo, Madan Puri, Jagdish Malhotra, Bahri, Master Ratan and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.10.1972.

The film has four songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and Tajdar Taj – two songs each. Music of this film was composed by Ratnadeep-Hemraj. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

 

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Husha Hayya, Sha Shaiyya…Shola Hoon Jawaan Asha Bhonsle, Chorus Hasrat Jaipuri
02 Koyi Chal Diya, Koyi Rah Gayaa Akela Mohd Rafi, Chorus Hasrat Jaipuri
03 Ek Zaraa Sa Kaam Karo, Bolo Bolo, Aaj Yahaan… Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle Tajdar Taj
04 Leke Main To Champaa Chameli Baabu, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle Tajdar Taj

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip synced by Brahmachari and Jayshree T. The song happens to be a stage drama song. However, since the movie is not available it is difficult to say in what context this song happens in the movie.

‘Rut Rangeelee Aayee’ is an obscure movie of its time. Though video of couple of its song are available. But the movie seems to be unavailable, or I could not find it.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie.

The team is continuing because the Magnet is very effective and the Magnet is Atul ji. I wish him and the Blog many more such milestones and may the Blog retain its identity for reliable and credible information, complete lyrics and non-stop service to lovers of HFM. All the best !

Today’s song is from the film Rangeela-1953 – a Bhagwan Art Production film. The Producer and the Director was Master Bhagwan himself. The cast consisted of Bhagwan. Purnima, Baburao, Badri Pershad, Indira, Usha Shukla, Madhav Kale and many others. The Music Director was Jamal Sen. There were 11 songs in the film and today’s song is the 8th song to be discussed here. Actually this song is one of the best songs of the film and I wonder how this song was left untouched. Maybe for my use !

Jamal Sen. His name is not a famous name, because he gave music in just a few films, but the industry wallahs and lovers of classic music know him too well. He was one of those few ones who had immense capability, but like Sajjad Hussain, he too was stubborn, unbending, egoistic, outspoken and reserved. In an industry full of Chamchaas and cut throat competition, artistes like Jamal or Sajjad were misfits.

Lata Mangeshkar respected him so much that to sing in his films, she sent several feelers and messages to him till she was called by him. Lata sang 10 songs for him in 4 films. 6 were solos, 2 male duets and 2 were Female duets.

If talent were the only criterion for a composer to succeed, Jamal Sen should have been the most successful music director of his time. But he was not.

Jamal Sen’s proficiency in Singing, dancing (Kathak) and poetry, lent a touch of completeness to his musical acumen and set him apart from the run-of-the-mill composers, became a liability for him in an industry which had no value for real class. The result: a composer who gave such brilliant scores as in Shokhiyan and Daaera, died unsung, after a long spell of isolation.

Jamal Sen’s forefather Kesarji who hailed from Sujangarh in Rajasthan, was said to be a disciple of Tansen and was hence called Kesar Sen. Jamal Sen was born on 26th November 1904, at village Churu. The family tradition in music was passed on to Jamal at a very young age by his father Jeevan Sen, a court singer and an acknowledged Ustad. Jamal, who could sing and play various musical instruments was especially good on the dholak, tabla and Pakhawaj.

Jamal Sen had been in Calcutta initially and sang on AIR Calcutta. He met Pankaj Mullick and studied Ravindra Sangeet too. Due to this link, he joined Pankaj Mullick in giving music to film Kasturi-54 also. From there ,he shifted to Lahore in 1938.

While in Lahore, Jamal Sen was introduced by music director Shyam Sunder to Master Ghulam Haider, which marked the beginning of a fruitful association spanning 12 years. Sen’s knowledge of classical and folk music and his mastery over the dholak made him an asset to Ghulam Haider in films from Khazanchi (1941) to Majboor (1948), until Masterji migrated to Pakistan in the wake of Partition.

He shifted to Bombay, after partition. Then a chance meeting with director Kidar Sharma gave him a break in films as a composer, and he proved his virtuosity in his very first film, Shokhiyan in 1951.

The imaginative use of the raag Yaman Kalyan in “Sapana Ban Sajan Aaye” sung by Lata Mangeshkar was a testimony to the composer’s command over classical music. The songs — “Raaton Ki Neend Cheen li” by Suraiya, a ghazal where melody is predominant, and “Aai Barkha Bahar” by Lata, Pramodin & chorus, bore the richness of Rajasthani folk music. A “Door Des Se Aaja re” by Suraiya, Lata is a classic example of folk and classical music intermingling to create an enchanting melodic pattern.

Shokhiyan was followed by Kamal Amrohi’s Daera in 1953. Though a flop, the film is remembered for the perennial appeal of the bhajan, “Devta Tum Ho Mera Sahara, Maine Thama Hai Daman Tumhara” by Rafi, Mubarak Begum, & chorus, in Raag Bhoop. When the situation required, Sen could also compose a Western tune “Sun Sun Meri Kahani” by Rafi for Bhagwan’s ‘Rangeela’

Jamal Sen, who had begun his career as a singer on AIR, Calcutta—he was among the first to sing Vande Mataram on radio—should have stuck to a career in, classical singing. With his talent and lofty ideals, he was a misfit in films. His inability to manipulate and his refusal to compromise, made him a loner, and the mediocre films which he scored music for led to a colossal waste of his rich talent.

Jamal Sen knew Producer Director K.Asif for many years.Once they met somewhere and Asif took Jamal to the sets of Mughal-E Azam. There a dance sequence was to be shot and Gopikrishna was rehearsing the steps. Jamal saw everything but did not comment anything. As Asif knew him well, he suspected something and asked Jamal what was wrong. Jamal told him that the sets are absolutely appropriate but the dance steps and the ‘Bol’ were not commensurate with the period when Akbar was reigning. Asif asked him then and there to make new Dance steps, prepare the ‘Bol’ and make music for that sequence. Jamal Sen did that and Asif was more than happy.

However that piece of Dance and music was not used by Naushad in the film, possibly due to professional jealousy.

Later, when K. Asif announced Sasta Khoon Mehnga Paani, which had a Rajasthani backdrop, he-asked Jamal Sen to be an advisor to bring authenticity to Naushad’s compositions. But luck once again played truant with him and the project never saw the light of day.

A proud and arrogant man, Jamal Sen never went out of his way to grab work. As a result, he was slowly relegated to the periphery of the music scene, and then to oblivion. Shokhiyaan and Daaera were a thing of the past. A commerce-oriented cinema had little use for his talent. Under the circumstances, it was a poor consolation to him that his imaginative score in the documentary,Madhumakhi, won laurels abroad.

Jamal Sen knew his prowess. And was proud of it. Once, after hearing him sing, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan called him a `Tansen’ and a ‘Sur Ka Bichhu’, Ustad Amir Khan described him as ‘Sangeet Shastri’. Notwithstanding the impressive titles and tributes, Jamal Sen continued to exist in a state of penury, unwanted and uncared for.

Jamal Sen should have been the most successful music director of his time. But he was not. In his last days Sen had but one friend, composer Ghulam Mohammed, who after being afflicted with a serious heart ailment, had shifted to Bombay’s far off suburb, Borivlii, where Sen was living in a dilapidated room.

In his later years, out of sheer frustration, he turned to liquor, and lived on the hope that his sons Shambhu Sen and Madan Sen would carry forward the family’s rich tradition in music. But Madan suddenly died of heart failure at the young age of 40. And he never recovered from the shock. Within a year, on April 12, 1979, he too died.

Jamal Sen composed music for 13 Hindi films.
Filmography:
1. Shokhiyan (1951)
2. Daera (1953)
3. Dharmapatni (1953)
4. Rangeela (1953)
5. Kasturi (1954), with Pankaj Mullick
6. Ritu Bahar (1954)
7. Patit Paawan (1955)
8. Amar Shaheed (1960)
9. Baghdad (1961)
10. Alha Udal (1962)
11. Manchali (1962)
12. Sankalpa (1974)
13. Pehla Kadam (1981)

Actually, Jamal Sen had retired in 1962 itself. When film Pehla kadam-81 was planned, a song which he had composed for film Shokhiyan, but had not used, was utilised in this film-Pehla kadam-81.

The cast consists of an actress Indira. Actually, the film Rangeela-1953 happens to be her Debut Hindi film. Indira is a ‘Same Name Confusion’ artiste. During the silent Era and early Talkie period, there was one Indira Devi. Her real name was Effie Hippolet- an Anglo-Indian. She acted in 24 silent films since 1927, but did only two Talkie films-Al-Hilal-35 and Wamaq Azra-1935. Then there is the comedian fatty Indira Bansal who was operative from 1951 to 1981, and worked in 116 films. This Indira was different.

Indira, one of Punjabi cinema’s most popular leading ladies of the 1960s, was born on August 6, 1938 in northern India. Growing up in an aristocratic family in the Punjab village of Kharian, her family lost everything when they had to flee their home during partition to settle in Kanpur. In 1952 her family shifted to Bombay where an Elder brother ran a successful business.

Indira was noticed by the popular comedian Bhagwan while he was shooting a movie at Jagriti Studios, and she was put in the cast of his film Rangeela (1953). Raj Kapoor, who happened to be visiting the set of Rangeela, noticed Indira and later cast her as the daughter of a rich industrialist in his film Shree 420 (1955).

Indira continued to appear in supporting roles in major Hindi productions like Funtoosh (1956), Mirza Sahibaan-1957, Yahudi (1958), and Dil Deke Dekho(1959). She had just appeared as the lead in the low budget yarn Jungle Ki Duniya (1959) when she was cast as the heroine in a Punjabi film titled Yamla Jatt in 1960. This was followed that same year by two more Punjabi pictures, Do Lacchian and Kiklee. All three films were very successful.

Returning to Hindi language movies, she found herself much in demand for B-films with colorful titles like Maya Mahal (1963), Jungle Boy (1963), Tarzan Aur Jadugar (1963), Pahadi Nagin (1964), Arab Ka Lal (1964), Son of Zimbo (1966), Sheba and Hercules (1967), Tarzan in Fairyland (1968) and CID Agent 302 (1968), sometimes playing the heroine, but more often than not as a vamp or villain. Occasionally she would snag a nice supporting role in a major production like Do Dil (1965) or Mere Huzoor (1968), and she still continued to star in Punjabi fare.

Sometimes billed as Indira Billi (her real name was Indira Kaur) she was interviewed in 1963 for Picture Post magazine where she talked about her beginnings: “I had not the good fortune of stepping into films and finding myself a heroine right from the start as had been the case with many glamor girls these days. It was a life of toil and tears, fighting every inch, every day, and month after month. Sometimes I was fed up, and felt tired of the ceaseless struggle to make my presence felt. With the struggle for existence keen and with not enough money, those early days were none too happy for a girl aspiring for a respectable place in the film world, let alone stardom. Sometimes I had my misgivings whether I was right in coming into films. Some kind of inferiority complex took hold of me and I thought several times that I would never become a star.”

Indira married cinema owner Shiv Kumar in the early to mid-1960s and left the film scene in the early 1970s.(Thanks to shri Mike Barnum ji and his blog-cinemajadoo.com).

After the phenomenal success of Albela-51, Master Bhagwan was in the seventh Heaven and floated his own production company,Bhagwan Art Productions and started making films after films, without realising that Albela’s success was mainly due to C.Ramchandra’s music and Geeta Bali. The result was as expected. Slowly but steadily, Bhagwan started going into the trap of huge debts due to unsuccessful films produced by him.

After a while, a day came when Bhagwan had to sell one by one all of his 10 cars, Bungalow etc and at the end of his career, he had to live in a one room tenement in a chawl, on the very street in Dadar named after his own uncle.

RANGEELA-1953 was one of the early failures of Bhagwan, in the series of future flops, beginning the imminent decline in few more years to come. This film was produced and directed by Bhagwan himself.

This was a story of a village boy-Babulal, who is eager to study in school, but due to his wicked step mother, has to do household chores instead. Fed up of this and to try his luck, he runs away to Bombay, where he meets Vidya Devi, a kind and young school teacher, who not only helps him but also starts teaching him, seeing his earnestness. Over a period, to sustain himself, Babulal, who was called Buddu in his village gets educated and also sells Chana, near to his school. Duly, he becomes a successful businessman, owning a shop, house etc. He is under the impression that Vidya Devi is in his love, but he is disillusioned when he hears a conversation between Vidya and her would be husband. Vidya refers to him as a good and honest student only.

Babulal learns that his father is in financial troubles and his house is up for auction. To help father, he collects all his money and is about to leave for village, when he learns that Vidya’s marriage to her fiance is in trouble, as Vidya’s father can not gather that much money.

Babulal is in two minds. Finally. he gives the money to her father for marriage, sells his shop, business and house to collect money and leaves for the village to help father.

The entire story went on predicted lines and did not succeed.

Here is the duet of Rafi and Asha Bhosle, with chorus. Let us enjoy this catchy song.

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

96th birth anniversary of O. P. Nayyar

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

OP Nayyar (1952-1994)

487

71 movies (562)
Asha Bhonsle

2887

7874

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

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

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

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

Hullo Atuldom

July 31st. Important date for lovers of Bollywood sangeet. This date-41 years ago- music lovers lost a singer who was a wonderful human being. He went by the name Mohammad Rafi.

We used to have pages and pages written about the greatness of this legend’s voice, singing style, kind-heartedness, etc in the pre-internet era. Then various people took up blogging as a passion and any blog on Bollywood and its music will definitely have atleast a few posts on this great singer. AM I COMPLAINING? NO NOT AT ALL. Because as our very own Rajaji has said in many of his posts ‘one cannot tire of writing or reading about Rafisaab and his persona’.

Similarly, the music channels on satellite television and FM radio will try to outdo each other in playing popular songs sung by Rafisaab. Again, I am stating a statement of fact and not complaining. Because any fan of Bollywood music can never tire of hearing and humming songs sung by this legend who had a smooth and soothing voice.

I have never tried making a personal list of favourite Rafi-songs as I fear that I might miss out on some gem which I have always loved. Maybe my list will start with ‘yaahhooo’, or ‘tel maalish’ on one day and another day may see me start listening from ‘chaand mera dil’ or ‘chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko’. Probably I may add a less heard song like ‘mann mora baawra’, ‘tumne mujhe dekha’, ‘hai duniya usiki zamaana usika’ and by the time I finish listening to all the songs in the list I may have reached ‘kaan mein jhumka taal pe thumka’ and ‘kitna pyaara vaada’ or ‘vaada karle saajna’ with a few soulful numbers in between. I think I should also clarify that the songs that I have mentioned are only a sample of the kind of songs I love to hear and not an exhaustive list.

Now I was looking for a song that would also help me wish a yesteryear actress on turning 74. She was born just as India was gaining Independence from the British rule. She was born in Mumbai to parents of Irani origin. Her sister (Malika) also was an actress and married to Randhawa (brother of Dara Singh); I think these are hints that point towards Mumtaz Askari famous as Mumtaz. Mumtaz’s journey in the movie industry was a tough one starting as a child in 1958, going on to teenage roles in early 60s. As an adult her first role in an A-grade movie was in O P Ralhan’s ‘Gehra Daag’ where she played one of Rajendra Kumar’s sister. Years later, when she was a commercially successful heroine, she was cast as Rajendra Kumar’s heroine in “Taangewala” which released in 1972.

“Taangewala” was a Dimple Films’ presentation and directed by Naresh Kumar meaning it was Rajendra Kumar’s home production. It had songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and tuned by Naushad. Mohd. Rafi, Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle and Lata mangeshkar were the playback singers used. The cast included Sujit Kumar, Bhagwan, Kanhaiyalal, Mohan Choti, Kumud Chuggani, I S Johar, Kaamini Kaushal Mehmood Jr. in addition to Mumtaz and Rajendra Kumar.

It had about seven songs of which the blog has four. Today we shall have the fifth one. Unfortunately I have not seen the movie or been able to lay my hands on a video link. My guess is this Asha- Rafi duet is picturised on the lead pair.

Here is Wishing Mumtaz health and happiness (heard that she is a Cancer survivor) and remembering the one and only Rafisaab who could do justice to any song and was sincere towards every composition that he sang making every song a gem.

This should be Rafi- Asha Bhonsle duet number 547.


Song-Aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar (Taangewaala)(1972) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
saajan tere nainon se jab naina hue chaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

din ye judaai ka re sahaa nahin jaaye
raaton ko akele hamse rahaa nahin jaaye
din ye judaai ka re sahaa nahin jaaye
o raaton ko akele hamse rahaa nahin jaaye
jaane kab
jaane kab sunegi tu dil ki pukaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
o aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar

tere bina bhatke yeh chadhti jawaani
paagal meri bindiya paayaliya deewaani
o tere bina bhatke yeh chadhti jawaani
paagal meri bindiya paayaliya deewaani
aisi bhi kya
arre aisi bhi kya aayi hai jawaani pe bahaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar
saajan tere nainon se jab naina huye chaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ab to leke chal kahin saathi mere mann ke
chal mere angana dulhan meri ban ke
ho ab to leke chal kahin saathi mere mann ke
o chal mere angana dulhan meri ban ke
doli leke ae ae
doli leke aaja re tu kal mere dwaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ki phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
kaleje mein
dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ke phansi pe latke jiyara hamaar

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 144 # Fifty years of ‘1971’ – 1
———————————————–—————————————-

The year 1971 completes ‘fifty’ years in this year ‘2021’. These days, we are discussing the movies released in the year ‘1971’. In this series today’s song is from the movie ‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’.

Alphabetically ‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ is the first movie of the decade 1971-1980. It was passed by Censor Board on 20.01.1971. The first movie 0f ‘1971’, as per date of certification by censor board, is ‘Johar Mehmood In Hongkong’. It was passed by censor board on 04.01.1971.

Both these movies have been represented on the blog, and both are yet to be Yippeeee’ed 😊 and that gives us the opportunity for this post here.

‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ was directed by A. Salam for ‘Movie Temple, Bombay’. It was produced by Swarn Singh. It had Joy Mukherji, Komal, Jayant, Madan Puri, I.S. Johar, Helen, Bhagwan, Sudhir, Zeb Rehman, Rajan Haksar, Shetty, Kundan, Shefali, Paro, Majnu, Roopali, Uma Dutt, Shabana, Rajrani, Darshan, Amar, Subhash, Shaloo, Sameena, Master Rodney, Sumeet, Bipin Khosla and others.

This movie was written by Charandas Shokh. Editing of this movie was done by R.V. Shrikhande.

This movie had six songs (including one two-part song) written by Noor Dewasi (one song) and S.H. Bihari (five songs, including one two-part song).

Music for ‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ was composed by N. Datta.

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

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Lyricist Posted on
01 Ye pyaar ka jhagdaa hai Mohd Rafi Noor Dewasi 29.04.2012
02 Choli bheegi, lat bheegi Asha Bhonsle S.H. Bihari 16.04.2012
03 Hamse badhkar kaun hoga aap ka deewaanaa Mohd Rafi,
Asha Bhonsle
S.H. Bihari
04 Aaj in haathon mein phir se zindagi…Tere is pyaar ka shukriyaa Mohd Rafi S.H. Bihari 09.02.2012
05 a) Iski ho gayi, uski ho gayi b) Naa baaba naa Mohd Rafi S.H. Bihari
06 Aaj ki raat faisle ki raat hai Asha Bhonsle S.H. Bihari

We can see from the above table that, so far, three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Incidentally all the three songs from this movie that have been posted were posted in ‘2012’ only and after that no song from this movie have been posted on the blog.

So, it’s a long gap of more than nine years now to have the next song from this movie here.

Today we will listen to a nice duet sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle from this movie. On screen Joy Mukherji and Komal are seen performing on this song and they are lip syncing in the voices of Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle, respectively.

I have not watched this movie and neither I remember to have listen any songs from this movie.
I like today’s song and I feel it is better heard than watched (however Joy Mukherji is as good as ever in such type of songs, but the actress in this song seems to be performing as ‘unnatural’ as possible 😊

Lyrics for today’s song are by S.H. Bihari and music is composed by N. Dutta.

(Today’s song also seems to have missed the many ‘Asha-Rafi’ duets compilation albums released by HMV in the past).

Let us now listen to the song … I am sure you like it and enjoy the composition …

pyaar ka afsaanaa
kitney din ki hai mohabbat
ye zaraa farmaanaa aa
