‘Radio days’ are here again for me. My new workplace is around 55 kms from my residential place, so it takes me around one hour or little a more than that, to reach office.

That gives me a good one-hour time in the morning and in the evening to tune in to ‘Vividh Bharati’.

In the morning my day starts normally with ‘Bharat Ki Goonj’, and in the evening it is ‘Shaam Sindoori’, ‘Sangeet Sarita’ and some part of ‘Jailmala’ if the ‘traffic’ on the way is more.

In the past two months I have got to listen many many songs which includes songs of ‘golden era’, new songs (from eighties onwards) and current or latest songs too.

Also, they include songs known to me and songs that I do not remember to have heard earlier. And the very latest songs which are totally new for me 😊

Today I am presenting one song of yesteryears which I liked a lot. This song is from the movie ‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’. I have not watched this movie and I was not aware of its details. But I liked this duet song (today’s) very much. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mohd Rafi. I do not remember this song getting included in any of the ‘song compilations’ brought out by HMV on audio cassettes in the eighties and nineties.

After listening to today’s song, I checked its details and watched its video. The song is lip-synced by Dheeraj and Vaishali on screen.

‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’ was directed by Rajesh Nahta for ‘Ranglok Productions, Bombay’. It had Dheeraj Kumar, Vaishali, Jayshree T., Rajendra Nath, Shatrughan Sinha, Manorama, Harindranath Chatopadhyay, Gajanan Jagirdar, Hercules, Vitthal, Praveen Pal, Shefali, Wajid Khan, Jeevan and others.

‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’ had seven songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by the Rahul Dev Burman.

The details of the songs as listed in HFGK (Vol-IV, 19611-1970) is as given below;

“Seema”(1971), a namesake of the better known “Seema”(1955), was directed by Surendra Mohan for Filmnagar, Bombay. The “social” movie had Simi Gareal, Kabir Bedi, Bharti, Rakesh Roshan, Chaand Usmani, Abhi Bhattacharya, Raj Mehra, Yashodhara Katju, V Gopal, Gopal Saigal, Bhola, Brahm Bhardaj, Bunty, Sunil, Rajesh, Kamaldeep, Subal Sarkar, Neta, Geeta, Jaamini, Rohini, Sndeep, Rohit, Dilip, Kanchan, < Sulochana (guest appearance), Padma Khanna (guest appearance) etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog. Here are the details of the songs covered si far :-

Blog post number Song Date of posting
601 Jab bhi ye dil udaas hota hai 23 January 2009
10713 Waqt thhoda sa abhi kuchh aur guzar jaane de 16 January 2015
12145 Dil mera kho gaya kho jaane do 25 June 2016
15203 Ladki chale jab sadkon pe aaye qayaamat ladkon pe 6 September 2019
15814 Ek thhi nindiya do thhe naina 18 August 2020

The sixth and final song from the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Incidentally, Shanka Jaikishan had composed music for “Seema”(1955) as ell.

The song is picturised as a dance song. I can identify the lady as Padma Khanna. I am unable to identify the male dancer. Their dance performance is being witnessed by a housefull audience. I cannot recall any old Hindi stagae dance song where the hall is anything but jampacked. 🙂

The audience also include the lead pair of Kabir Bedi and Simi Garewal.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors seen in the picturisation.

ith this song, all the songs of “Seema”(1971) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered the movie and the movie “Seema”(1971) thus gets YIPPEED in the blog.

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

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

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

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

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Jhoome re kali bhanwraa ulajh gayaa kaanton mein Naukri-1954 All songs covered
Hamko hanste dekh zamaanaa jalta hai Ham Sab Chor Hain- 1956 All songs covered
Aag lagaanaa kyaa mushkil hai Kangan-1959 All songs covered
Maane naa maane naa maane naa Saweraa-1958 All songs covered
Ye din din hain khushi ke Jabse Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963 03 songs posted
Hamse hoti muhabbat jo tumko Muhabbat Isko Kehte Hain-1965 All songs covered

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

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

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

S.No. Year No of posts
01 2008 126

HFGK Vol-IV mentions the following seven songs in this movie, all written by Shailendra and composed by Datttram.

So far, only three songs from this movie ‘JAB SE TUMHE DEKHA HAI-1963’ have been posted on the blog; (highlighted with their links)

Tumhe husn deke khudaa ne sitamgar banaaya (part-II)

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

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

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

over to the song now …

Lyrics of this song have been sent by Prakashchandra.

06/10/2020 – 74th birth anniversary of Vinod Khanna
——————————————————————————-

This duet song by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhonsle is one more song from the 80’s and radio days. This remained in the memory as a very good song from the film ‘Insaan” 1982, starring Vinod Khanna, Jeetendra and Reena Roy. I looked up this song again a few days ago for including in the Rafi series, as there are no duets in the series. But I am not including it there, instead posting it as a anniversary post for Vinod Khanna. The song is sung on screen by Vinod Khanna and Reena Roy.

This is the trivia I found about the song, inadvertently.
“Saathiya Tu Mere Sapnon Ka Meet Hai – This song was based on the 1977 British hit “Angelo” by the pop band Brotherhood of Man.”

I was not looking to add to the short series of inspired/copied songs. But since this falls in the category it is added in the series as the 5th song. There is only one more song in the series, barring any more inadvertent incidents.

Seeing the filmography of Vinod Khanna, his career started with films “Man ka Meet” and “Nateeja” in 1969. He graduated from bit roles to villan’s role in “Aan Milo Sajana” and small character in Manoj Kumar’s “Purab Paschhim” in 1970. Then came some of those critically acclaimed films like “Reshma aur Shera”, “Mere Apne” in 1971. He was noticed in both these films, especially “Mere Apne” with the main hero there. In “Mera Gaon Mera desh”(1971), he enacted the role of villain “Jabbar Singh”, which was later rehashed in “Sholay” as “Gabbar Singh”.

In “Achaanak” (1973), a movie directed by Gulzar he played an army officer, where he kills his wife and friend, using the methods learnt in training for killing the enemies, than uses the same training to evade arrest. I have seen this movie on TV, but don’t remember how it ends. He gets medals and accolades for same thing in a war, and a conviction for killing his unfaithful wife and deceitful friend. The dilemma was the basis of the film’s story. This is also a once seen, never forgotten sort of film. I would call it the most important film of Vinod Khanna’s film career.

The year 1974 brings more important films like “Imtehaan” and ‘Haathh ki safai”. Major hits start with multi-starrer “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977), many more films later. Somewhere along the way, Vinod Khanna seems to have been typecast in the role of Daaku in many films, even as a hero.

Come 1980 and there were not so hit “The Burning Train” and super hit “Qurbani”. Feroz Khan’s “Qurbani”, had Vinod Khanna in the meaty title role, the one doing sacrifice.

I almost missed “Muqaddar ka Sikandar” (1978), as it is absent in the list of films at imdb. A few more multi starrters like “Kudrat”(1981) and “Rajput”(1982) later he was still short of a superstar status. Then came the Osho twist in the story and he left everything to join the aashram. He was out of the industry for almost 5 years. He made a very impressive comeback in 1987 with excellent hero oriented films like “Insaaf” and “Satyamev Jayate”. He continued working in many films for three decades till his death in 2017.

He had a stint in politics too like Amitabh Bachchan, was an MP from Punjab.

Some film buffs and Vinod Khanna fans contend that had he not got involved in “Osho” and left the industry at a crucial juncture, his career graph would have been very different. These are of course conjectures, and we will never know what could have been.

So here is the song from “Insaan”, composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and written by Anand Bakshi, as a tribute to Vinod Khanna on his 74th birth anniversary.

Today’s song is from the film Husn ka chor-53.

The film was made by Basant Pictures owned by Homi Wadia. He was the Producer, but surprisingly the film was directed by his elder brother J.B.H.Wadia (13-1-1901 to 4-1-1986 ). JBH had also written its story, screenplay and dialogues too. Another surprise was that this film was a Costume/action film. The brothers had separated in 1942 on the issue of Wadia Movietone continuing making stunt films or to start making social films. JBH wanted to make social films and Homi Wadia (22-5-1911 to 10-12-2004) advocated for continuance of stunt films. He separated from JBH and started his own Basant Pictures. The third surprise was that for the first (and the last) time JBH wrote part of the lyrics of one song in this film. Today’s song is that song.

The cast of the film was Usha Kiran, Mahipal, Brij Mohan (B.M.Vyas), Azeem Dalpat, Sardar Mansoor, Agha Shapoor, Bismilla etc.etc. The wadias, known for fantasy and stunt films, always made new stories by rehashing old stories from Arabian Nights. This was also one such movie. I had seen this film.

The lead pair was Mahipal and Usha Kiron. one speciality of Wadias was that in their films, the credits list used to be very lengthy ,as they were keen on writing almost every small actor’s names also.

Qamar(Mahipal) was a compulsive thief.Once he steals Princess Husn’s(Usha Kiran) jewels,but he is so dazed by her beauty and innocence that he returns her jewels.When several foreign Princes come to propose to her,he also goes there by disguising as a prince.Husn selects him,but the secret is revealed by Nadira(Lalita kumari),a dancer who loves Qamar.The king could not digest the selection by Husn. Qamar is put in Jail, from where he is rescued by Nadira and friends.One Faqir tells Qamar to become a real prince to win Husn.
Qamar sets out on a magic flying horse to meet Moon Fairy to get the Magic wish bowl.The Moon fairy is rescued by him from the custody of evil genie by killing the genie.

Meanwhile Husn’s father faces mutiny and death if Husn is not married to the Vazir. Qamar arrives on a flying carpet and takes away Husn to the Moon.
The End.

In the last scene this line is Flashed ” Heaven dwells in pure Hearts “.

It was great fun to watch such types of movies.The audience also participated in the ongoings on the screen by appropriately scolding, encouraging or clapping loudly.There was no need to think logically. It was pure entertainment, and a timepass.

Actor Brij Mohan aka B.M.Vyas was one artiste who started as a singer, became a drama actor and then ended up as a villain, character actor. B.M.Vyas was born as Brijmohan Vyas on Vijayadashami (22 October) day of 1920 in Churu, Rajasthan. He is the younger brother of the well-known poet and lyricist, Bharat Vyas. He was married at the age of 17 when his wife, Jamna was just 11. They had 71 years of marital bliss before Jamna passed away in 2008. They had six daughters and a son. After acting in over 200 films in various languages, Vyas quit acting in the early 1990s. Then he moved to his residence in Kalyan. Having seen various shades of life, Vyas lived a contented life with his children and grandchildren.

On 15 January, 1944, actor Prithviraj Kapoor realised his dream when Prithvi Theatre, his own drama company came into being. Mahakavi Kalidas’ classic Shakuntala was chosen to be their first performance. The play’s cast included Uzra Mumtaz (younger sister of Zohra Segal) to play Shakuntala, Prithviraj Kapoor to play Dhushyant, K N Singh was cast as Rishi Kanva, Shakuntala’s foster father, Sati Devi (Bijoya Ray’s sister, Ruma Guha Thakurta’s mother) as Gautami, caretaker of Kanva Ashram who raises Shakuntala, and Hemavati (Daya Kishan Sapru’s wife) to play Shakuntala’s friend Priyamvada, among others. A young, 24 years old, B M Vyas was recruited as a singer by the drama company to sing songs in their play at a monthly salary of 75 Rupees.

Once when rehearsals for their maiden show were in progress and Vyas was done with his singing rehearsals, he was watching rehearsals of the cast. One of his songs for the play was “Bitiya Rani Kahan Kahan Tapasvi Log, Milna Julna Rehgaya Nadi Naav Sanjog”. The cast was rehearsing for a scene which needed Rishi Kanva to recite a mantra in Sanskrit, but actor K N Singh was having trouble reciting it. Prithviraj was trying to help him but was also faltering in saying it perfectly. Vyas , an expert in Hindi and Sanskrit, having immense knowledge of Ved Mantra was witnessing the proceedings for two days. It was possibly the blessing of Goddess Saraswati that inspired him to say the mantra aloud. On hearing him intone the mantra with such Brahminical precision, Prithviraj was very impressed and asked him to help K N Singh in saying the mantra correctly. But soon K N Singh informed Prithviraj ji that he will not be able to speak Devbhasha (Sanskrit) and that he should look for another artiste for the role. Prithviraj asked Prithvi Theatre’s manager Ramesh Saigal to approach Vyas for the role. Vyas , who had already acted in a Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana earlier, readily agreed and stepped into the role and thus started his journey as an actor.

While the rehearsals were still on, Vyas suffered a personal tragedy and had to go back home in Bikaner, Rajasthan. There he fell sick with typhoid. Here rehearsals were in full swing as the play was to premiere on 9 March, 1945 at the Royal Opera House. The final date was about a month away so Prithviraj asked him to come back as soon as possible. Vyas returned with his wife though he was still unwell. On the day he resumed his rehearsals he couldn’t do much due to frequent blackouts. The medication he was on, did not seem to help him much. He remembers the doctor from Kalbadevi who treated him for free; with his medication, Vyas ji’s health improved considerably in just three days.

The final round of rehearsals was done and finally the day of Prithvi Theatre’s first play to be staged, arrived. For the first performance of Shakuntala, many known names of the film industry were present at Royal Opera House. In the scene where Rishi Kanva makes an entry on stage he was required to raise his hands for blessing but Vyas was still weak and his hands started shaking. He tried a lot to control them but to no avail. He then remembered that he had seen many old people whose hands and head would involuntarily shake, so he started to shake his head too. The end result was so effective that during the play’s interval Prithviraj came and hugged him. He asked him how he developed that body language, Vyas told him about his genuine problem. Prithiviraj told him that he did a wonderful job and should continue with the same every time the play was staged.

Vyas had a long association with Prithvi Theatre, from 1944 to 1955. During this period he toured with the group to various cities and got an opportunity to showcase his singing and acting skills in various plays like – Deewar, Pathan, Aahuthi, Gaddar, Kalaakar, etc. The dedication with which this iconic actor prepared for his roles can be observed from the fact that he could mouth dialogs from plays he participated in over six decades ago.

Vyas was interested in music since childhood. He is a self-taught singer. They had a Harmonium at home which Vyas learnt to play on his own. He liked to be around musically inclined people. He would listen carefully and learn. He fondly remembers the blind musician from his home town who would give him a free hand to play the various musical instruments he had. He never really had a Guru he could learn from but he says he learnt the art of teaching singing. He gave music tuitions when he was in Bikaner before moving to Mumbai.

In the early 1940s Bharat Vyas called his younger brother to Mumbai. Soon Vyas ji got the opportunity to act and sing as many as twenty songs for the Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana written by Bharat. Music Director Naushad Sahab’s assistant Ghulam Muhammad who hailed from Rajasthan was very impressed when he heard Vyas’s voice in the play. He took him to meet Naushad Sahab who was working on the soundtrack of the film Pehle Aap (1944). Vyas got an opportunity to sing a group song “Hindustan Ke Hum Hain, Hindustan Hamara; Hindu Muslim Dono Ki Aakhon Ka Tara” with established singers G. M. Durrani and Shyam Kumar along with a new singer Mohammed Rafi. Since this song was supposed to be sung by soldiers on screen, Vyas and Rafi Sahab had to wear heavy boots and do a rhythmic march while singing to give an effect of an army troop. Such effects could not be added to a song with the technology available then; it all had to be done in real time. However the first ever song Vyas sang for a film was “Alakh Niranjan, Jai Jai Jai Manaranjan” from Bhartrihari (1944) which was picturized on Arun Ahuja (Govinda’s father).

After Vyas joined Prithvi Theatre as a singer, he had to do regular riyaz at home. A music teacher who often heard him sing once asked if he would be willing to give music tuitions. Since his monthly salary was 75 Rupees then, Vyas agreed as this would give him additional income. The teacher took him to meet Jaichand Kapoor and soon Vyas started giving music tuitions to his elder son, Brijmohan. However his younger brother seemed more inclined and started learning music from Vyas. This youngster was none other than our legendary playback singer, Mahendra Kapoor who always acknowledged that B M Vyas was his first Guru.

Vyas gave playback in four films – Bhartrihari (1944, MD: Khemchand Prakash), Pehle Aap (1944, MD: Naushad), Maharana Pratap (1946, MD: Ram Ganguli) and Naulakha Haar (MD: R C Boral) before destiny took him on a different path. He remembers meeting Rafi Sahab years later who sweetly said “Pandit ji you changed our line (singing)” to which Vyas admitted that he did not see much of a future for himself in singing and hence switched to acting.

After Prithvi Theatre’s first play Shakuntala was staged, Devika Rani (owner of Bombay Talkies) was keen to know who played Rishi Kanva. When she saw the 24 yrs old Vyas she was surprised, she never expected to see such a young man. She offered him a role in a Bombay Talkies film to be directed by actor Jairaj but the film was never made.

When Ramesh Saigal moved away from Prithvi Theatre, he joined Chetan Anand’s company India Pictures as Production Manager. They were working on their next film Neecha Nagar (1946) when Ramesh Saigal offered Vyas a small role (protagonist’s elder brother) in the film. Prithvi Theatre never laid any restrictions on their actors; they could take outside work while working in their plays. Vyas was eager to face the camera and accepted the role with open arms. He is credited as ‘Vyas ji’s in this film. Soon he played a small role in Raj Kapoor‘s Aag (1948) where he is credited as ‘Brijmohan’. But the role that gave him recognition in the film industry was in Barsaat (1949) where he played actress Nargis’ father. For this film he is credited as ‘B. M. Vyas’. Thus Vyas ji’s film career took off and he never looked back.

He has had a long and very successful career of more than four decades and has been part of many memorable classics. He has always been a character artist who started his career with portraying old characters. His last film most probably was Maa (1991).Vyas was very keen to work with the great filmmaker V Shantaram and approached him for work. Shantaram was planning Do Aankhen Barah Haath (1957) and was busy casting actors to play six prisoners in the film. He did not tell him that he is Bharat’s younger brother who was the lyricist of the film. When Vyas approached him, Shantaram was initially a bit apprehensive due to his height but soon cast him as one of the prisoners, Jalia Nai. They had a month-long schedule in Kolhapur. When the reels were sent to Rajkamal Studios for processing, it was found that due to dirt particles on the lens there were lines all across the frame in all the reels and the whole month’s hard work had gone to waste. They had to reshoot the entire thing. Vyas had a tough time managing schedules due to this re-shoot as he had other films in hand too. My favourite scene of this film is where Jalia comes with an intention to kill the Jailor played by Shantaram himself. That scene showcases Vyas ji’s ability as a performer, his entire body language, facial expressions, use of eyes and voice in this scene is a class act, beyond words.

About the classic scene from Sampoorna Ramayan (1961) Vyas said when he was offered the role of Ravan he was thrilled, being Shastri in Sanskrit he had read so much about this mythological character. Hence he was really keen to play the part but Ravan is expected to have a powerful physique while Vyas ji had a lean frame. To overcome this hurdle he got cotton padded clothing made for the role to look fuller. The rising temperature due to lights in addition to studio heat, he would sweat profusely in those cotton padded cloths but he did not let it hinder his performance. That innovative scene where Ravan is interacting with his nine heads was a collective brainchild of Babubhai Mistry and Homi Wadia. Vyas had to enact from a fixed position in front of a stationary camera for fifteen days but the end result was very effective.

On being asked about the most memorable and satisfying moment from his entire career Vyas narrated this incident. Prithvi Theatre’s play Gaddar was being staged in which he was playing the role of Maulana. Once filmmaker Kidar Sharma came to see the play, and was very impressed with his dialog delivery in Urdu. He asked Vyas to meet him. Sharma was working on his next film Shokhian (1951) and was looking for an actor to play the role of Baba Ghani. He gave Vyas a long dialog written in Urdu which Baba Ghani had to say to inspire the soldiers who are running away from the battle field to come back. Vyas said that he can’t read Urdu. Sharma was surprised and asked then how he played the role of Maulana in Gaddar. He said he rehearsed his lines written in Devnagri script and played the part. He asked Sharma to get the dialog written in Devnagri, and promised to prepare and say them the next day.

Next day he said the lines with such perfection that Sharma gave him a small Silver Coin as a token of appreciation. After that Sharma would often ask him to say the lines whenever important people came to meet him. Once actor Dilip Kumar came and he was asked to say the lines in front of him as well. Dilip Sahab was very impressed and remembered that he had heard this voice before. Vyas told him that he may have seen Raj Kapoor’s Barsaat (1949) where he played actress Nargis’ father. Dilip Sahab then recommended Vyas ji’s name to play actress Naseem’s father in the film Baaghi (1953), produced by his brother Ayyub Khan. Fortunately copies of Shokhian (1951) are available and this scene is here for all of us to see. It was heartening to see Vyas recite the same dialogues with such enthusiasm even today, after almost sixty years.

B M Vyas acted in 175 films. His first film was Neecha Nagar-46 and last film was Oh,Darling ! yeh hai India-95.

Vyas ji left for a better world on 11 March, 2013. (Adapted from articles from Maitri Manthan and Blog beete hue din, with thanks.)

Today’s song is a comedy song, sung by Mohd. Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and chorus.

Remembrance day of Jaikishan :
———————————–
Today i.e. 12th September, 2020 is 49th death anniversary of Jaikishan, a half of Shankar-Jaikishan.

I have just now read the detailed Wikipedia Page of Shankar-Jaikishan, so will reproduce some para’s which are worthy of mention in terms of Jaikishan’s death anniversary.

“Shankar Jaikishan enjoyed an unrivalled position in the Hindi film industry. During their heyday and even toward the later part of their career, they were the highest paid music directors in the industry. Barring stray exceptions, they were paid more than the leading actors and the promotional material of their films would give them more prominence than anyone else.”

“What can I say… my musical partner in life has gone, what is left of me to say anything more, I had never thought that at such an early age he would leave us all and go; Anyway his good qualities of maintaining goodwill, giving love and receiving love were innate in him and I too don’t have them in me. He used to regularly remind me of my innate quality of being in a boisterous mood all the time and always abrasive with some one or the other and so on and so forthwith…….”
(Shankar on Jaikishan’s death in an interview with AmeenSayani.)

The page also has this to say about Shankar Jaikishan, vis-à-vis different singers :

“Shankar Jaikishan combo worked above all of with Mohd Rafi and secondly Mukesh, and produced numbers of hits and unmatchable gems. Mohd Rafi was their favourite singer despite having good reputation with other playback singers of its time.”

I read somewhere else, that the mukhda of the song “Ye mera prempatra padh kar” from ‘Sangam’ was actually taken from the letter written by Jaikishan to his than fiancée “Priya”. So this could be the instance where Jaikishan unwittingly revealed that he is the composer of the block-buster song. This caused a rift between the two as Jaikishan broke the unwritten agreement between them, of not revealing which of them is the creator of any particular song. Here, Rafi Sahab is said to have intervened and solved the issue between Shankar and Jaikishan, and also later on between Lata Mangeshkar and Shankar in the mid 70’s.

But there is no doubt of the truth here when it is said that “Shankar-Jaikishan, along with other artists, composed “everlasting” and “immortal melodies” in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s.[2] Their best work was noted for being “raga-based and having both lilt and sonority”.

All hindi film music fans agree that they changed the face of hindi film music with “Barsaat” and the success of the film and its music played a big role in this change.

The music I think was versatile and inspiring to new music directors. Theirs was a first of its kind duo, as far as I know who combined their talents and acumen with two lyrcists and made a fearsome foursome. They can also be called fabulous and formidable. They had to be, to be on top of the game for two decades. Shankar-Jaikishan can also be credited for starting the trend of version songs, one male and one female version. Contemporaries and seniors like Naushad and S.D.Burman rarely did it. Naushad in “Mere Mehboob” and S. D. Burman in “Sharmilee” and “Tere Ghar Ke saamne”. But in the later instance, it was both male solos.

I am actually trying to wrap up the long running series on Mohammad Rafi songs, so trying not to look for a Rafi Sahab song for posting on this occasion. But as luck would have it, I found this popular song from ‘Pyaar hi Pyaar’(1969). Moreover this song has a stamp of Shankar-Jaikishan signature style in the orchestration of the music. This is an Asha-Rafi duet, with the fast pace and beat. This is the manifestation of Asha Bhonsle making inroads in the Shankar Jaikishan cap, which started with “Teesri Kasam”. Shankar-Jaikishan were known for Lata only music scores through 50’s and not just for R.K. films. I think the exceptions to this were very rare and few, where Asha, Geeta Dutt or Shamshad Begum got to sing Shankar Jaikishan compositions. Suman Kalyanpur was one such alternative which Shankar Jaikishan tried, in mid- 60’s for duets with Rafi sahab.

I have also tried to find if Shankar Jaikishan ever re-used their own tune to compose songs, but could not find any such songs. Their music was a huge commercial success, so no one else could try and copy their songs.

The song I am presenting in a party song, where Vijayanthi Mala is trying to make Dharmendra jealous, flaunting a dance partner. There are other popular Rafi solos in the film, but this would be the most popular, with the title song of the film ’dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyar hi pyar beshumaar’.

Blog Day :

4438 Post No. : 15879

Some years back, I recall having seen for the first time on the internet the photo features of Hindi film stars such as Madhubala, Nalini Jaywant and Begum Para in ‘Life’ magazine. These photographs were taken by the magazine’s well known photographer, James Burke in 1951 who was posted in India.  From the standard of 1951, these photographs would have ranked as bold. But one more actress also featured in that magazine – the featured photos were bolder than those of the stars I mentioned earlier. Subsequently, I had also seen her images appearing in ‘Filmindia’ magazines of 1948 and 1949. The actress in the photoshoot of 1951 was Mohana Cabral.

Today, September 11th is the 30th Remembrance Day of Mohana Cabral who died of heart attack this day of the year 1990 in France where she had been staying with her husband and daughter since 1986.

Mohana Cabral (03/02/1929 – 11/09/1990) whose real name was Mona Cabral, was born in Socorro in Bardez taluqa of North Goa in Konkani speaking Christian family. In early 1930s, the family shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) when her father changed his job to Bombay-based Hindustan Construction Company. Mohana did her initial schooling at Victoria High School in Mahim. Later. she was put in a boarding school in Pune where she completed her high school.  In Pune, she joined as a telephone operator in a telephone company. It is through connecting the long distance telephone calls that Mohana got acquainted with some of the film stars of that time including Nargis, Begum Para and Pratima Dasgupta.

Mohana got introduced to Kishore Sahu who offered her a role in his film ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949) which was her debut film though ‘Aag’ (1948) was released first without her name being accredited in the film.  Kishore Sahu changed her name from Mona to screen name, Mohana which got attached with her during the rest of her life not only in films but also in the Konkani plays and singing career.

Sometime in 1948, Mohana got involved with Konkani ‘Tiatr’ in Mumbai. (‘Tiatr’ is a Portuguese word used in Goa for ‘theatre’ for the Konkani dramas encompassing music, dance, and singing. In a way, it is akin to Marathi ‘Sangeet Natak or musical dramas). Her debut Konkani drama was ‘Cortub Avoichem’ (1948) which was directed by the pioneer of Goan Konkani Tiatr, C Alvares, the producer, director, actor, song writer and the singer. In fact, Alvares was instrumental in encouraging girls to play the female roles in his dramas and introduced Mohana and her younger sister, Ophelia. In 1952, Mohana got actively involved with Konkani tiatr in Mumbai, mostly collaborating with C Alvares as an actor-singer and worked in about a dozen plays. Both the sisters were actor-singers in Konkani Tiatr in Mumbai and later in Goa. In fact, in Goa, Mohana is known more as a tiatrist than the Hindi film actress.

In 1951, Mohana met Edward Downing, a Royal Indian Air Force pilot in a hotel where the shooting of her film ‘Sansaar’ (1951) was in progress. They got married in 1951 and had a son, Mark. Unfortunately, her husband died in a plane accident in less than two years of their marriage. In 1955, Mohana got married for the second time with John D’frates who was working for the United Nations and got posted at Beirut.  With this posting, Mohana bid adieu to Hindi film industry. Her last shoot was for the film, ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

In Beirut, Mohana learnt Arabic and began producing dance programmes for Television. She also acted in a couple of dramas on Television. After spending many years in Beirut, her husband got posting in Vienna from where he retired in 1986. Post retirement, Mohana and her family settled in France. Mohana was very much interested in Goan Konkani Tiatr. She would regularly visit India on holidays and act in Konkani dramas in Goa. During the period of her visits, she had also cut a few discs of her non-filmy Konkani songs, some with her mentor, C Alvares.

Mohana died of a heart-attack in France on September 11, 1990 when she was 61. [Thanks for the inputs from Shishir Sharma’s Blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ on Mohana posted on May 13, 2015 and an article in ‘The Navhind Times, Panaji, Goa dated April 6, 2020].

It is interesting to note from her filmography that how quickly Mohana established herself in Hindi film industry. In ‘Aag’ (1948), she had one song role though her first debut film was ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949). In 1949, she had acted in as many as 6 films. 1950 was a blank year for her as probably she got associated with Konkani plays in Mumbai. In 1951 and 1952 she did 5 films each. 1953 and 1954 was again lean years for her. In 1955, she did 4 films before quitting the film industry. In all, she acted in 26 films in her short span of 6 years in the film industry. The full filmography of Mohana is given below:

1948: Aag.
1949: Chaar Din, Jagriti, Kamal, Patanga, Rimjhim, Saawan Aaya Re.
1951: Adaa, Naadaan, Nageena, Sagaai, Sansaar.
1952: Aashiana, Chham Chhama Chham, Najaria, Saloni, Saaqi.
1953: Shole.
1954: Danka, Dost, Shart.
1955: Insaaniyat, Marine Drive, Sau Ka Note, Teerandaz.
1956: Taksaal.

I had noticed in the advertisements of films for which she worked in 1949-50 that  her name was written either in bold or capital letters. That shows that Mohana was popular among the audience of that time and her name mattered for the success of the films. In most of her films, she got roles of a ‘side kick’ to the comedians like Gope, Agha and as a singer-dancer.  Her popularity can be gauged from the fact that in most of her films, Mohana will have at least one song picturised on her. Some of the songs picturised on her for which video clips are available for watching are listed below:

Raat ko ji haay raat ko ji chamke taare – ‘Aag’ (1948)

Pyaar ke jahaan ki niraali sarkaar hai – ‘Patanga’ (1949)

My my my my my dear – ‘Nageena’ (1951)

O baabu kaise dil karoon qaaboo – ‘Sagaai’ (1951)

Lucknow chalo ab raani – ‘Sansaar’ (1951)

Haseena sambhal sambhal ke chal – ‘Saaqi’ (1952)

O madam do se ho gaye ek ham – ‘Aashiana’ (1952)

Dil mera hai deewaana – ‘Shart’ (1954)

Mohana has also rendered two songs on herself in the film ‘Rimjhim’ (1949).

On the occasion of Mohana’s 30th Remembrance Day, I present a song “Aisi Nainwa Ki Laagi Kataar” from ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955) rendered by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle. The song is written by Rajinder Krishan which is set to music by C Ramchandra. The song is picturised on Mohana as a part of a ploy to wood wink a soldier to stripe out his uniform to be used for disguising Mangal (Dilip Kumar) as soldier to gain access to the prison to facilitate the release of Bhanupratap (Dev Anand).

In the video clip, there are only two stanzas where as the audio clip contains the full song of four stanzas. This is the 10th song to appear on the Blog out of 17 songs in ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar

kaage se bulbul ka taanka hai laaga
aa ja chalen ghataaon ke paar
udd jaayen furar furar
haan haan jaayen purur purur
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
