Missing Films of 1960s – 34
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yesterday, 25th July, was the anniversary of passing away of GS Kohli, the music director extraordinaire. He passed away in 1996, in Bombay.

A long time assistant music director to OP Nayyar, he had a short stint as an independent music director in the decade of 1960s. Despite a load of fantastic lilting songs in all his films – songs that became instant hits, very popular in their times, and still continue to be favourites of the lovers of the golden era of Hindi film music – he remained confined to B/C grade stunt films only. He continued to work as OPN’s assistant before, during and after his stint as an independent music director.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 5

Lata’s Songs NOT YET covered on our Blog – 19
————————————————————————-

First, let me congratulate our leader of this Blog for the unsurpassed feat of posting so many songs in one Blog.  I had the rare opportunity to meet him personally in our ‘MumbAtulite’ meet.  My impression is that he does not speak much but when he does, he speaks straight and to the point. (You cricketers use the phrase ‘with the straight bat’, right?)  He is also ‘famous’, or rather ‘infamous’ (pardon me for using the word, but I am using it without any negative shade to it), for not attending most of the Atulite meets.  We all very well know that he plans very much to attend, but his work schedule does not allow him to do so and has to cancel at the last moment.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 28

बहारों ने छेड़ा खुशी का तराना

The antecedents of this song are somewhat peculiar. As per available information, this song is listed in the Geet Kosh for the film ‘Aansoo’, an unreleased film from 1970s. Also, as I checked for online availability, I find that this song is posted for the film ‘Majboori’, that is listed for the year 1986. I went back and double checked other songs which are listed in the Geet Kosh for the unreleased film ‘Aansoo’, and sure enough, the songs listed in Geet Kosh figure in the film ‘Majboori’. The most likely scenario is that the film was started sometimes in the 1970s, with the title ‘Aansoo’, and the songs were created and released under that film name. The film would have been delayed inordinately, and finally found its release almost a decade later in 1986, albeit under a different title – ‘Majboori’.

Sureeli Suman – 16

This is the last but one song from the album ‘Swar Bahaar’, for which I have repeatedly discussed the details, in this series.  Music Director Shyam Sharma has provided appropriate lilting tune to the lyrics of Anjaan.

The original HMV of EMI group was renamed RPG, when purchased by the Goenka Group. Later on in 2000, this major music producing company was aptly named as ‘Sa Re Ga Ma’. During earlier years, it used to sponsor great artists to produce many non-film music albums. Later on, under the false pretext of changing music trends, but mainly due to commercial angles, such publications along with classical music albums ware slowly reduced to very near zero.

The counter has been stuck at double one triple nine, for three days now. That, I am sure, will have beaten all the records in the books.

Missing Films of 1960s – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As it is, I am able to maintain little regularity and consistency in posting the songs that I so dearly want to. And then there are other factors that keep distracting me and taking me away from my own planned tracks (pun intended 🙂 ). So I get to start preparing a particular song for posting. And then a message will intervene – “do you have such and such song? Goodness, I just need to listen to it now” or a variation is that someone else, very dear to the requestor wants to listen to it. And so, one more draft continues to sit in the wordpress and my hard disk, and completely different song starts getting prepared.

Chaandni raaten – Song No. 17
————————————–

       chandni raaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten
       sab jag soye
       ham jaagen
       taaron se karen baaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten

This song has over the years been heard here and there. I was aware this is some remix song of an old song, just like the remix of the song ‘Kitni Akeli Kitni Tanhaa Si Lagi‘ from film ‘Talaash’ (1969).   I used to think that ‘Kitni Akeli. . . ‘ song was a Kishore Kumar song and remixed.  It was many years later that I heard the original Lata Mangeshkar song composed by SD Burman.
