He was only 48 years old when he passed away in 1951. One of the pioneering luminaries of cinema in Bengal, as it was emerging in the 1920s and 30s, he was a multi skilled cinema person who was an actor, a producer, director, script writer, cinematographer, film editor, make-up specialist, lighting specialist – yes, quite a portfolio of skills.

Remembering Pramthesh Chandra Barua, on his remembrance day today. He passed away this day, in 1951.

Born on 24th October, 1903, he was the son of the royal family of Gauripur (in Assam). His school and college education happened in Calcutta. He got married at the age of 18, while still at college. Later in life, he would be married again twice. His third wife was actress Jamuna, who appeared opposite him in the Bengali version of ‘Devdas’ (1935) produced at New Theatres.

His introduction to the world of cinema was quite accidental. While at Shantiniketan, he got introduced to Dhirendranath Ganguly, who then introduced him to the fledgling films industry in Bengal. In 1926, he joined the film company British Dominion Films. His screen appearances start from 1929, as he appeared in ‘Panchashar’ (debut film) directed by Debaki Bose, and ‘Takay Ki Na Hay’ directed by Dhirendranath Ganguly.

His urge was to have his own studio and produce his own films. The opportunity came in 1930, when he had to travel to England for medical treatment. He obtained a letter of introduction from Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore for French film maker M Rogers. After his treatment in London, he met M Rogers in Paris, and learnt the skills of cinematography from him.  He also visited the Fox Studio and Elstree Studios in London and learned the techniques of lighting and scenario composition.

He returned to Calcutta (now Kolkata) with a load of camera and lighting equipment and set up the Barua Studio and Barua Film Unit. In 1931 he produced his first film ‘Apradhi’ which was directed by Debaki Bose. He played the lead role in this film. The film ‘Apradhi’ is a path breaking film for Indian cinema, from a technology perspective. This is the first film that was shot under artificial lighting. Prior to this experiment, the films were always shot using natural lighting. The use of artificial lighting also brought in the need to change the method of make-up of actors. It is notable that in the experimentation on lighting and make-up techniques, Barua wasted almost 50,000 feet of stock footage, and that in an era when raw stock was difficult to obtain, and was costly. But the film production brought in significant changes to the film making techniques and the technical know-how for film directors and cinematographers.

In 1932, he produced ‘Nisher Dak’ and ‘Ekada’. The latter was directed by Sushit Mazumdar, with story by Barua himself. He also appeared in the role of a villain in the film ‘Bhagyalaxmi’ produced by Indian Cinema Arts and directed by Kali Prasad Ghosh.

In 1932, he produced his first talkie film – ‘Bengal-1983’. It was a brave attempt by the young film maker to tackle a futuristic subject. The film was inaugurated by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. But the film turned out to be a commercial disaster, and Barua was forced to close down his studio due to financial difficulties.

In 1933, BN Sircar invited Barua to join New Theaters. With the skills at hand, and the encouraging environment at New Theatres, Barua excelled in his film making. New Theaters brought him to the zenith in his career as a film maker. His first directorial venture was ‘Rooplekha’ released in 1934. He played the lead role opposite to Uma Shashi. With this film, Barua introduced another new technique for the first time in Indian cinema – use of flashback for storytelling.

Then in 1935 came ‘Devdas’. Barua directed all the versions – the Hindi, Bangla and Assamese, and played the lead role in the Bangla version. Critically acclaimed, Barua’s portrayal of the tragic hero was so lively that it made him a legend. He was all but 32 years old at that juncture.

‘Devdas’ was an instant commercial success. It is hailed as the first social film to enjoy success and popularity as never before. From a technical perspective also, the film is rated very high – for the use of multiple techniques – close up, montage, wipe, dissolve, fade-in fad-out etc. The film also uses flashback and introduced a new technique – ‘intercut telepathy shot’.

In 1936 he directed ‘Manzil’ and in 1937 came ‘Mukti’. Both films were bold and much ahead of their times in terms of the subject matter. Taking off from ‘Devdas’, Barua explores the human relations and love triangles which are extremely poignant and thought provoking. The film ‘Mukti’ is notable in that it is a pioneering effort of outdoor shooting. A major part of the film is shot in the scenic outdoors of Assam. It took almost two decades for the rest of industry to become seriously interested in using outdoor shooting for storytelling.

In 1937, he directed ‘Rajat Jayanti’ which turned out to be a roaring riot of laughter. Considered as the first serious attempt at a full length comedy feature, this film was commercially and critically a success. In the same year, he also directed ‘Adhikar’, which is another path breaking film in that questioned the divisions in society and overtly advocated class struggle.

Bimal Roy and Phani Majumdar started their film careers working under Barua at New Theaters.

In 1940, after directing ‘Zindagi’ starring KL Saigal (coming together once again after ‘Devdas’ of 1935), Barua moved from New Theaters and started work once again as an independent and freelancer. Except for one or two, there are no notable films that came from his work in this period post New Theaters. One needs to mention ‘Shap Mukti’ (1940), which he directed for Krishna Movietone, ‘Jawaab’ (1942) which he directed for MP Productions, and ‘Shesh Uttar’ (1942) produced and directed by himself. It appears that Barua and New Theaters was the magic mix, which faded away when he moved out of New Theaters.

In this phase, he took to drinking heavily, and his health began to deteriorate. He passed away in 1951, on this date.

The song I present today is presumably not released on 78 rpm records. I present an edited clip extracted from the video of the film. Unfortunately, the first line of this rendition is not available in the original film clip that I have. On screen, this is actually a two part song that is listed as separate songs in the Geet Kosh. This song itself is a very thoughtful construction. The hero (Prashant, role played by Barua) is in a phase of depression. His earlier marriage with Chitra (role played by Kanan Devi) is a failed venture and post divorce he moves to rural Assam, where he stays in a local inn managed by Pahari (role played by Nawab), and his wife Jharna (role played by Menaka Devi). The couple takes to this depressed young man very kindly. Pahari and Prashant become very good friends.

A passage is shown where Prashant is off in the woods, and in his melancholic despair is singing two couplets from the original ghazal by Mirza Ghalib – ‘Koi Ummeed Bar Nahin Aati’. Incidentally Jharna is also close by, having come to fetch water from the river. She hears him sing these depressing lines, and then she responds with the second part of this song which is an effort to inspire and encourage the young man.

The notable thing is how the director has constructed this scenario. He takes two couplets from a famous ghazal of a legendary poet, and then attempts to juxtapose that against a positive and encouraging thought that answers to the points of despair raised in the original lines. The response is written by Aarzoo Lakhnavi, and is indeed a masterpiece in itself, as it tries to confront Mirza Ghalib, by showing the other side of the picture.

The music is composed by Pankaj Mullick. There is no mention about the identity of the singing voices. And I have indicated that as such below. Are these the voices of the on screen actors themselves? I do not know, and do not want to make an uninformed guess. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please help to identify and confirm the singing voices in this song.

Remembering PC Barua. An attempt to keep alive the memories of this multi skilled pioneer film maker, whose many path breaking contributions have enriched the film making technology and techniques. May these memories be sustained for the future generations.

Song – Koi Ummeed Bar Nahin Aati (Mukti) (1937) Singer – Unidentified Male Voice, Unidentified Female Voice, Lyrics – Ghalib, Aarzoo Lakhnavi, MD – Pankaj Mullick

Lyrics

[koi ummeed bar nahin aati]
koi surat nazar nahin aati
nahi aati

hum wahaan hain
jahaan se hum ko bhi
kuchh hamaari khabar nahin aati
marte hain aarzoo mein marne ki
maut aati hai
par nahin aati
nahin.. aati

hai gila kis ka
koi ummeed bar aa jaayegi
parde aankhon se utha
surat nazar aa jaayegi
parde aankhon se utha
surat nazar aa jaayegi

rakh tu be-aasi pe baaki
aas ka bhi silsila
tu kisi aalam mein bhi hoga
khabar aa jaayegi
tu kisi aalam mein bhi hoga
khabar aa jaayegi

hai museebat ki bhi ek hadd
is se ghabraana hi kya
ghabraana hi kya
maut ki to kya khabar
raahat magar aa jayegi
maut ki to kya khabar
raahat magar aa jayegi

[कोई उम्मीद बर नहीं आती]
कोई सूरत नज़र नहीं आती
नहीं आती

हम वहाँ हैं
जहां से हम को भी
कुछ हमारी खबर नहीं आती
मरते हैं आरज़ू में मरने की
मौत आती है
पर नहीं आती
नहीं॰॰ आती

है गिला किसका
कोई उम्मीद बर आ जाएगी
पर्दे आँखों से उठा
सूरत नज़र आ जाएगी
पर्दे आँखों से उठा
सूरत नज़र आ जाएगी

रख तू बे-आसी पे बाकी
आस का भी सिलसिला
तू किसी आलम में भी होगा
खबर आ जाएगी
तू किसी आलम में भी होगा
खबर आ जाएगी

है मुसीबत की भी इक हद
इस से घबराना ही क्या
घबराना ही क्या
मौत की तो क्या खबर
राहत मगर आ जाएगी
मौत की तो क्या खबर
राहत मगर आ जाएगी

The Nightingale of Punjab – the sobriquet given to her by the film industry and the media. Today, she would have completed 93 years.

Remembering the zestful singer Surinder Kaur on her birth anniversary today.

Born in Lahore in 1929, her family moved to Ghaziabad near Delhi when the Partition happened. It was the same year that she also got married. She was already a singing star in undivided Punjab, and had made her debut as  singer on the Lahore radion station in 1943. Between 1943 and 1947, she and her elder sister Prakash Kaur recorded a number of Punjabi folk song with HMV. These songs have created a genre of their own, and continue to be the gold standard in Punjabi folk music even today, more than seventy five years after being originally recorded.

Her husband, Prakash Singh Sodhi, a professor of Punjabi Literature at Delhi University was very supportive of her career as a singer, and encouraged her to go to Bombay (now Mumbai) and make a mark for herself in the Hindi film industry. She came to Bombay in 1948, and immediately got a break, with music director Ghulam Haider giving her a chance to sing three songs in the film ‘Shaheed’. During the next four years, till 1952, she recorded more than fifty four songs in Hindi films. And then took a decision to return to Delhi. The reason that was cited was a disagreement with the climate of Bombay.

She was conferred the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for Punjabi Folk Music in 1984, by the Sangeet Natak Academi, the Millennium Punjabi Singer award, and Padma Shri award in January 2006 for her contribution in Arts. The Guru Nanak Dev University conferred on her a doctorate degree in the year 2002.

Later in the year 2006, her health took a turn for the worse, and she went to United States for treatment, and to be with her daughters who are settled there. Her condition worsened and she passed away in a New Jersey hospital on 14th June, 2006. She was 77 years old.

Each of the songs that she has sung in Hindi films is a gem. The tone and character of her voice is so distinct, and her diction carries a touch of north India, and Punjab in particular. I present today this wonderful song from the 1948 film ‘Naao’. The lyrics are from the pen of DN Madhok and the music is from the mind of Gyan Dutt.

A song that tells of the state of the heart of the lady, whose beau is leaving for distant lands. The words and their rendition is simply too good –

तुम तो चले हो लगी तोड़ के
हम कित जाएँ

you are departing, breaking this alliance of hearts
alas, where can I go

 

Listen to this lovely melody, and the wonderful rendition – the voice of Surinder Kaur.

[Note: The lyrics of this song have been sent by dear Prakashchandra ji.]

Song – Tum Ho Na Ho Hamaare, Hum Ho Gaye Tumhaare (Naao) (1948) Singer – Surinder Kaur, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – Gyan Dutt

Uma Devi the singer – most people, especially of the more recent generations may not even recognize this name. And if they are film buffs, they may surely be familiar with the comedienne Tun Tun. However, they may not connect these two names to the same person.

Remembering Uma Devi on her remembrance day today. She left this world on 24th November in the year 2003, at the age of 80.

As a singer, we see her active from 1946 to 1959. The earliest reference as a singer is from the film ‘Wamiq Azra’ of 1946. And her last singing assignment is for the 1959 films ‘Jungle King’ and ‘Hero No. 1’.

As an actress, rather as a comedienne, she started appearing on screen from the 1950 film ‘Babul’. And she continued to be active till 1990. The last film she appeared on screen is ‘Dhandhe Ki Kasam’. In the 1950s and 1960s she was quite popular presence in Hindi films. During her career she teamed with many male counterparts such as Bhagwan Dada, Agha, Sunder, Mukri, Dhumal, Johnny Walker and Keshto Mukherjee. In the span of four decades, she appeared in about 200 films.

The song that I bring on board today is from a lesser known film of 1949. The film name is ‘Sumitra’. The names of the lyricist and music director are given, however both are completely  unfamiliar. Checking through the Geet Kosh I find that this is the only film where these two names are appearing. The lyricist is KF Contractor and the music director is HD Subham. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please add more information about these artists.

This is a love song in which the lady is expressing her feelings of being completely captured by love. A rare and very less heard / unheard song.

Song – Teri Preet Ne Tadpaaya (Sumitra) (1949) Singer – Uma Devi, Lyrics – KF Contractor, MD – HD Subham

Lyrics

teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

jaane kaise jeet liya o tu ne mera jiya
jaane kaise jeet liya o tu ne mera jiya
tere bina mera jiya chain nahin laage piya
tere bina mera jiya chain nahin laage piya
preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

chaar aankhon ne mil kar dil se
chaar aankhon ne mil kar dil se
kar leen dil ki baaten
kar leen dil ki baaten
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
do dil ki mulaqaaten
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
do dil ki mulaqaaten
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

Today we celebrate a combined anniversary of two singers. Two singers who were contemporary, two singers who were very good friends, two singers whose voices were considered almost similar. It is the birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt (nee Roy), and the remembrance day of Meena Kapoor.

23rd November – Geeta Ji was born in the year 1930 in Idilpur village (now in Bangladesh), into a zamindar family. In early 1940s, they moved to Calcutta (now Kolkata) and then to Bombay (now Mumbai) in mid 1940s.  The same date in 2017, Meena ji passed away in Kolkata, after some years of illness. She was in Delhi till 2003, the year when Anil Da (Anil Biswas) passed away, and then she moved to Kolkata.

Geeta ji started her singing career in 1945, with the film ‘Aadhaar’ under the music direction of SN Tripathi. Her last released film is ‘Anubhav’ from 1971, and then ‘Midnight’ from 1972, which remained unreleased.

Meena ji started her career in 1946. Two films with her playback singing were released that year – ‘Door Chalen’ under the music direction of KC Dey, and ‘Eight Days’ under the music direction of SD Burman. Her last singing assignment is recorded for the 1965 film ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’, with music by Anil Biswas.

As I thought of writing a combined post for these two singing ladies, I tried to search for a duet sung by them. As per the Geet Kosh, I am able to locate only three duets they have sung. Two of them are already posted here on our blog. The first one is from the film ‘Aadhi Raat’ (1950) – “Main Ne Balam Se Poochhaa Miloge Kahaan”, and the second one is from the film ‘Jalte Deep’ also from 1950 – “Aayi Milan Ki Raat Karo Meethhi Meethhi Baat”. The third duet listed in Geet Kosh is from 1951 film ‘Ghaayal’. The song is “Tera Kisi Pe Aaye Dil…”. This song is not yet posted on our blog. And for good reason. This song is not yet traceable in public domain. The funny thing is that the song on the ‘palat’ (other) side of the record (GE 8739) is very much available – “Dil Toota Hua, Pal Pal Tujhe Pukaare” (singer is Meena Kapoor) and also posted on our blog. But as I started inquiring yesterday evening from my trusted circle of collector friends, all of the replied that this song is somehow not yet available.

But then today late morning, I got information about two other duet songs of this pair, which was very heartening. Just as a side, film ‘Ghaayal’ of 1951 has one other song in which the voices of these two ladies appear. However, this one is a trio song accompanied by GM Durrani. It is a long song, on both sides of the record (no. GE8740) which means it is about 6 minutes long. I was actually preparing to use this trio song for today’s post, but then I got two responses from two dear friends, both sharing information about one duet song each. Very interesting development indeed.

First I got to see a message from dear Gajendra Khanna ji (Bengaluru based) in which he shared info about another duet song. This one is from the 1948 film ‘Hip Hip Hurray’ (aka ‘Chaube ji’) and the song title is “Hum Jaan Gaye Jaan Gaye Jaan Gaye Ji”. The Geet Kosh does not list the singer names for this song. I tried to confirm this information, checking with another dear friend Zafar Bhai (based in Delhi-6), and he sent me the image of the record of this song. The reason that GK does not list the singer names is because the record itself does not carry these names. On checking back with Gajendra Ji, he shared with me the audio of the song, and said that the identification is based on the voices on the track. So we found another duet song.

And then almost immediately Zafar Bhai also responded with an additional song. This turns out to be a NFS duet, that makes it all the more rare. The fact that there are really very rare duet NFS songs (of any pair of singers), being able to locate one with these two voices, which have otherwise also not sung too many songs together, makes is rarer than rare.

I decided to go ahead with this NFS song, and dear Zafar Bhai immediately obliged by posting it on YouTube. All the additional delays that bring this post to almost 9 pm in the evening, are my doing. :D) :D)

The lyrics of this song are from the pen of Madhukar Rajasthani, an eminent poet of his time. Music is from the mind of Vedpal Verma, one of the lesser heard names in Hindi films, who has otherwise a notable portfolio of 70 songs from about a dozen films (this info is till 1980, and there may be more work done by this MD beyond 1980).

The song is a ‘bidaai’ song. A hoary tradition of this land – a song that is sung to bid farewell to a new bride as she starts her journey to a new home, a new family and a new life partner. The words are so wonderfully appropriate. My identification of the voices is that the first stanza is in the voice of Geeta ji and the second stanza is in the voice of Meena ji. I may be wrong, as I am not a good judge of voices. The record label unmistakably carries both names. In case my identification is in error, please let me know and I will make necessary changes.

In the beginning of the song there are a few lines that have been recited by an unidentified male voice. Could it be the poet himself? I cannot say.

Two very beautiful voices, and two very beautiful ladies. Good friends, but singing together only occasionally. Enjoy this very rare treat of an NFS duet song, with lots of thanks to Zafar Bhai for making my day.

 

Song – Jaa Ri Laadli Apne Ghar Ko (NFS) (1952) Singer – Geeta Roy (Dutt), Meena Kapoor, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Vedpal Verma

Lyrics

kaisa milan ye kaisa bichhudna
kaisa milan ye kaisa bichhudna
kaisi jag ki reet re

de di bida mohe hanste hanste
de di bida mohe hanste hanste
kaise hain ye meet
goonj raha kaanon mein ab tak
wahi vidaai geet

yaad hamaari karna
saath tumhaare meri duaaen
phoolo phalo khush rehna

oo oo oooo
bachpan ke sab sangi saathi

कैसा मिलन ये कैसा बिछुड़ना
कैसा मिलन ये कैसा बिछुड़ना
कैसी जग की रीत रे

दे दी बिदा मोहे हँसते हँसते

कैसे हैं ये मीत
गूंज रहा कानों में अब तक
वही विदाई गीत
जा री लाड़ली अपने घर को
याद हमारी करना
साथ तुम्हारे मेरी दुआएं
फूलो फलो खुश रहना

ओ ओ ओ
बचपन के सब संगी साथी
बचपन के सब संगी साथी
भूलत नहीं भुलाए
मन छोड़ा बाबुल की नगरी
मन छोड़ा बाबुल की नगरी
तन डोली में जाये
तन डोली में जाये
दूर कहीं वो ले के बांसुरी
बार बार ये गाये
जा री लाड़ली अपने घर को
याद हमारी करना
साथ तुम्हारे मेरी दुआएं
फूलो फलो खुश रहना
जा री लाड़ली

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#9 – The magic of Bappi Da & Kishore Kumar)

Today’s song is another Bappi Da-Kishore Kumar song which I like very much since the release of its movie. I had not watched this movie and over the years I only remember this song and one other song of this movie which is ‘naina ye barse, milne ko tarse’ which too I like very much. However I had always thought these songs as the compositions of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. It was only when I noted down the lyrics of this song for presentation that I came to know that it was a composition of Bappi Lahiri and not Laxmikant Pyarelal.

There are some nice songs given by Bappi Lahiri-Kishore Kumar combination in the eighties till 1987 when Kishore Kumar passed away. I seem to have lost track of many such songs and it is only nowadays that I am getting reaquainted with them on ‘radio programmes’.

Today’s wonderful romantic Kishore Kumar song is one such song. This is from the ‘1985’ movie ‘Mohabbat’.

‘Mohabbat’ (1985) was directed by Bapu. It was produced by Inder Kumar-Ashok Thakariya.
It had Anil Kapoor, Vijayata Pandit, Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Aruna Irani, Amjad Khan, Shammi, Ram Mohan, Sundar, Shubha Khote, Satish Kaushik, Chitti Babu, Asha, Manmauji, Dev Sharma, Sehgal and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.05.1985. Movies with the same title were released in ‘1943’, and ‘1997’ as well.

We have the ‘1943-Mohabbat’ already represented on the blog.

“Mohabbat-1985” has five songs in it which all were written by Indeevar. Music for this film was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Saanson se nahin …mohabbat se chalti hai duniya Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Mehbooba paayi hai maine kaisi… Kishore Kumar
03 Zindagi mein pehla pehla toone … Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
04 Apne Laila ka jo pyaar nahin paayegaa Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, chorus
05 Naina ye barse milne ko tarse … Lata Mangeshkar, chorus

Today we are going to listen to a song sung by Kishore Kumar from this movie. This song is lip-synced by Anil Kapoor on screen. Vijayata Pandit is also seen in the picturisation. The song has been shot at some beautiful outdoor locations I think.

With today’s song this movie “Mohabbat-1985” makes its debut on the blog.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Nargis-1993’. This movie seems to be an obscure or un-released movie of its time. I was not aware of this movie or its songs. But I got to listen to today’s song on ‘Vividh Bharati’ around two years back and since then I was longing to share it on the blog. When I listened to this song first I was not aware of the name of the movie it was from. It was only later when I looked for the details of its movie and other songs that I became aware of the name of the movie.

The first and the foremost thing that I got excited about this song was the composition which I liked and its singing by Lata Mangeshkar. I was surprised to have never come across this song during all these years since it was produced.

Secondly the name of this movie is missing from the list of Atul ji’s ‘Yearwise Review of Lata Mangeshkar HF Songs’. I checked the post for this year ‘1993’ again and again and also checked the posts for the years ‘1994’ and ‘1992’ to see if this movie name is there if was released earlier or later. But ‘Hindi Filmography-Vol-1 (1986-2000)’ mentions this movie of the year ‘1993’. (So we need to add this movie to this list also).

“Nargis-1993” was directed by Khalid Mohammad for ‘Filmtech, Bombay. Khalid Mohammad was also the producer of this movie.

This movie had Hema Malini, Naseeruddin Shah, Zeba, Manzoor Ali, Dinesh Hingoo, Neelam, Arun Bakshi, Anant Mahadevan, Sulbha Deshpande, Sudhir Dalvi, Nandita Thakur, Rabia, Kamal Deep, Chandani, Amjad Khan and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 26.04.1993.

According to the information available online this movie has the following songs in it.

S.No. Song Title Singer
01 Arey tu pawan basanti Lata Mangeshkar
02 Main kaise kahoon jaaneman Jagjit Singh
03 Kisi aashiyaane mein -1 Lata Mangeshkar
04 Dono ke dil hain majboor pyaar se Jagjit Singh, Lata Mangeshkar
05 O jaane jaana qurbaana Asha Bhonsle, Naseeruddin Shah
06 Kaahe ab ki ae bahaar Lata Mangeshkar
07 Kisi aashiyaane mein -2 Shweta – I

From the above table we can see that the voice Lata Mangeshkar featured in four songs of this movie – three solo songs – and one duet.

Today’s song is a solo song which we are going to listen to and enjoy.

The lyrics for today’s song and all the other songs of this movie have been written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.
Music is composed by Basu Chakravarty (of Basu-Manohari).

With the today’s song this movie ‘Nargis-1993’ makes his debut on the blog. And it joins the movie with same title i.e. ‘Nargis-1946’ on the blog.

Over to the song now …..

This song post covers the 1300th song of Kishore Kumar in the blog as a singer.

Today 16th November 2022 is the one hundred and fifth birth anniversary of Chitragupt Shrivastava (born on 16.11.1917 and passed away on 14.01.1991). He is better known by his name Chitragupt.

Music director Chitragupt had a long journey in Hindi Film Music since 1946 to 1988 (as per information available). However some sources mentions ‘Chandaal-1998’ as his last film where he is credited with one song. This needs to be checked and authenticated. The titles of this movie don’t mention his name as a music director. (His sons Anand-Milind composed music for this movie.).

In his long career music director Chitragupt has composed many memorable and unforgettable songs and they will always be cherished by music lovers. His name will remain in the annals of Hindi Films Music. He was also the pioneer of the music for ‘Bhojpuri films’ ever since the first ‘Bhojpuri’ film was produced. He has composed timeless melodies in many ‘Bhojpuri’ films. He has collaborated with many mainstream singers from Hindi film music in Bhojpuri films too. And we already have some of these songs posted on the blog. Some of them, from the movies in the ‘eighties’ are yet to be presented on the blog. Today we pay our tributes to Chitragupt ji and remember this talented yet ‘underrated’ music director on this blog on his birth anniversary.

Today we are going to enjoy a song from a ‘Bhojpuri’ movie of ‘1986’.

In Hindi film music, music director Chitragupt has collaborated with singer Kishore Kumar and their collaboration have given us some very very special everlasting songs. Many of them are my favorites. I wish many more should have been there from this un-usual ‘combination’.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and this song will mark the 13th century of Kishore Kumar songs on the blog. We still have many Kishore Kumar songs to be covered on the blog. I hope we will be able to see all of them on the blog in our life-time.

Much has already been written about Kishore Kumar – the person and Kishore Kumar – the singer, so I am not going to repeat same here again. But, yes, I have something to write on my journey with Kishore Kumar songs at different stages of my life which I am leaving for another post which I would like to present later on the blog.

Similarly, I am not going into the many other details about Chitragupt ji here today in this article. His music has a ‘special place’ in my heart and I would certainly like to put my thoughts in an article here surely in the future.

So what special for today?

Today’s special is this composition by Chitragupt ji which all of us are going to enjoy. And we are going to enjoy the singing of none other than Kishore Kumar of this song.
(I am not aware if this is going to be the first Kishore Kumar song in Bhojpuri on the blog).
Today’s song is from the movie ‘Ganga Ke Teere Teere-1986’.

It was directed by Rajpati for ‘Shri Jagannath ji Pictures. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.04.1986.

“Ganga Ke Teere Teere” was produced by Hari Kishan Madhavdas Masand and Kishan Uttamchand Lalwani.

It had Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Madhu Malini, Ram Singh, Girja Mitra, Satyen Kappu and Bharat Kapoor.

They were supported by Yunus Parvez, Chand Usmani, Dulari, Shubha Khote, Vandana Shastri, Rajrani, Jai Pahalwan, Ratna, Master Mani, Mishra, Pande, Master Vinit Jha, and Shabana (Banarasi).

Dilip Sinha, Shekhar Purohit, T.P. Ojha, Brajesh Tiwari and Jayshree T made guest appearance in this movie.
Story of this movie was written by Rajpati. Editing of this movie was done by S.R. Sawant.

Rajpati also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

Music of this movie was composed by Chitragupt.

Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, and Udit Narayan had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is lip synced on screen by Ram Singh (I guess). Also seen in the picturisation of this song is Madhu Malini and many others.

This song is has a village set up where people seem to be gathered for some village fair (?).

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy this entertaining song …

With today’s song this movie ‘Ganga Ke Teere Teere-1986’ makes its debut on the blog .

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (movie – Raja Rani Ko Chahiye Paseena-1978)
—————————————–

Today 14th November is celebrated as a ‘children day’ all over the country. It is the birth anniversary of our First Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru.

We pay our tributes to the Country’s first Prime Minister today and enjoy this song with a message on this special day.

For this occasion I was looking for a children’s song for presenting on the blog. And I was especially looking for a song sung by children that reminded me of this movie name which I had earlier came across while browsing the HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). When I was in Nagpur during 2015-2016 I got a DVD having this movie with other V. Shantaram movies from a road-side CD/DVD seller in Sadar area of Nagpur. I thought I would watch it later but it didn’t happen. Then the changing of places for me (Nagpur-Anand-Vadodara) got the whole lot of books and CD/DVDs remain as it is for years now…

The videos of this movie were not available online those days. But now the songs in audio format and even the movie is available online.

This movie is ‘Raja Rani Ko Chahiye Paseena-1978’.

I had always been fascinated by the movies made for the children especially and have always loved to watch them.

Today we will listen to a song from this movie to commemorate today’s occasion and will have brief information about this movie.

‘Raja Rani Ko Chahiye Paseena-1978’ was directed by Sulbha Deshpande for ‘V. Shantaram Productions’.

It was produced by Kiran Shantaram.

It had Sushant Ray, Rajan Sawant, Sugandha Sadhale, Nishad Tambe, Ninad Tambe, Sharang Deo, Durga Jasraj, Abhitabh Sharadchandra, Ninad Deshpande, Parag Vanakudre, Atul Parchure, Mohan Desai, Prashant Bhalerao, Sujit Ray, Rahul Kiran, Uday Shinde, Sushma Sawarkar, Ajit Deshpande, Vijay Joshi, Yatin Karyekar, Dhananjay Kakad, Sonal Phadake, Sherona Ghosalkar, Sandeep Palande, Chhaya Shete, Priya Hate, Vaishali Likhite, Vidya Shanbhag, Dhanlaxmi Sharma, Nita Khambate, Sadhana Phadke, Priya Vaidya, Rajshri Kulkarni, and many other child artists. (I thought to present the complete list here, but as I was noting it down from the movie link it was just going on and on 😊 ).

Story of this movie was written by Vijay Tendulkar. Screenplay was jointly written by Vijay Tendulkar and Sulbha Deshpande.

Editing of this movie was done by Madhav Kamble.

Dialogues and lyrics for the songs in this movie were written by Professor Vasant Deo.
This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.12.1978.

This movie has four songs written by Vasant Deo and composed to music by Sharang Deo.

I guess that all the songs in this movie were sung by singers who were young then, as their name suggests.

Arati Anklikar (born on 27.01.1963), Sadhana Ghanekar(born on 07.03.1969), Durga Jasraj, Sharmila Datar, Vandana Datar, Ratan, Sharma had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The movie then introduced the first ‘child music director’ Sharang Deo.

Here is a brief about this movie taken from a online website (which doesn’t allow to copy it, so I had typed it as it is 😊 )

“Narrated in form of a play by a group of well-intentioned children, it tries to drive home the need for all round hard work. The king and queen in the play who are childless are advised that only a herb ‘mixed with human sweat’ produced by hard work can give them their heir. The search by the king for such a commodity makes him realize that right from himself to his subjects there is a crass laziness and corruption. The king realizes that the nation can progress only through hard work and not by inflicting any punishment on himself or his subjects. With this message the play ends.”

Today’s song is an inspirational song and it motivates all to do hard work to make this earth a ‘paradise’ for all.

Today’s song is sung by Arati Ankalikar-Tikekar.

I have not been able to note correct words at few places which I have marked as (?). I would like to request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

I do not remember to have watched this movie in my childhood and later and it was only in 2015 when I got my copy of HFGK Vol-V that I got to know about this movie.

With the today’s song this movie ‘Raja Rani Ko Chahiye Paseena-1978’ makes its debut on the blog.
