Hullo Atuldom

This post by Avinashji reminded me of today’s song.

“Naam” (1986) had a cast headed by Nutan, Poonam Dhillon, Amrita Singh, Kumar Gaurav and Sanjay Dutt along with a few familiar faces forming the supporting cast. Pankaj Udhas had a guest appearance in the iconic song “chitthi-aayi-hai-aayi-hai-chitthi-aayi-hai/”.

Avinashji’s post gives the technical details, censor certificate date, and the complete star cast. All the trivia that I had in mind before commencing this post viz: how the cast of “Mother India” became related post the marriage of Kumar Gaurav (Rajendra Kumar’s son) to Namrata Dutt (daughter of Nargis and Sunil Dutt). Atulji’s post for chitthi-aayi-hai-aayi-hai-chitthi-aayi-hai/ also mentions how the movie was meant to help Kumar Gaurav’s career but Sanjay Dutt benefited from the movie.

The basic story of the movie was- Nutan is the mother of Ravi (Kumar Gaurav) and Vicky (Sanjay Dutt). Both the sons love each other immensely and but are contrasting characters. Ravi is the more responsible and straight-forward of the two and is forever helping Vicky out of tricky situations. Vicky decides to go to Dubai to earn enough to keep his brother and mother happy and bring the family out of financial problems. Ravi helps him with the documents needed to go to Dubai but unfortunately Vicky finds himself in all kinds of problems on landing in Dubai- fraud visa, entangling with a ruthless underworld led by Rana (Paresh Rawal) etc. The story shifts to Malaysia, as Vicky is sent on an errand by Rana and Ravi ends up following Vicky there to try and bail him out of the mess. But only ends up loosing his beloved brother and bringing back his pregnant widow (Amrita Singh) to India.

Today’s emotional song is sung by Mohammad Aziz and Manhar Udhas. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and Laxmi-Pyare the music directors. This song may not have been popular in its time but deserved to be. THe song has both the brothers getting drunk at the farewell that Ravi has arranged for Vicky.

Let us wish Sanju Baba a very Happy Birthday and lots of health and happiness with this post. I recall having read a news, same time last year, that he was undergoing treatment for lung cancer. Hope he is fit and fine and will be back to what he does best- entertain his fans.

# Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood # 11
——————————————————–

Welcome all to this today’s post which is the final post in this series.

And, before moving to this post, first, I would like to thank Atul ji and Sudhir ji for giving me this opportunity to present this series.

So far, we had the following ten posts in this series earlier.

1) Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey
2) Na koi paisa na ilm banaao bambai mein film
3) Mera naam hai Mehmood
4) Birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya
5) Aisa banoonga actor main yaaron
6) Ham hi jaanen ek torey manwa ki peer
7) Janamdin tujhko mubaarak ho
8) Parda uthhne waala hai tamaasha honewaala hai
9) Hamne dekhi hai honewaali bhaabhi
10) Kaan mein jhumkaa, chaal mein thhumkaa

So far, we have enjoyed the above ten songs in this series.

Today’s song is from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Thokar’.

But before that let us have a recap on this series.

I had watched The movie ‘Rivaaz-1972’ during my childhood in my childhood days. One of its songs ‘jalaa do jalaa do duniya ko jalaa do’ had a lasting impression on my mind.

When I became a contributor to our blog, I shared this song and one other song a Rafi-Asha duet from this movie ‘Rivaaj-1972’. During preparation for these songs, I came across the song ‘lagey koi lottery’ lip synced by Junior Mehmood on screen and sung by Rafi Saab.

That made me curious to know if there were more such songs where Rafi Saab’s voice was used for Junior Mehmood. To know more about it I searched for the contact number of Junior Mehmood and on one fine day I had the chance to speak to him in person. And what a memorable day it was for me!!

I was excited and very happy on that day when I got this opportunity to speak to him. I have already shared about my discussion with him and the songs of Rafi Saab for him, which he himself noted to me, in this post here.

So, initially it started with ‘Rafi sings for Junior Mehmood’, and further got included songs by other singers for Junior Mehmood. I also had my memories of Junior Mehmood movies and his ‘stage programs’ in those years of my childhood.

After I spoke to him, it became a routine for me to send birthday wishes to him on his birthday every year and send him greetings on festivals.
I also spoke to him a few times in between these years. I will never forget the way he responds to my calls always and how humble and down to earth he is. He always generously shares information whenever I speak to him.

When I spoke to him about the song ‘aisa banoonga actor main yaaron’, I asked him how he felt when he was doing mimicry of all those great actors?

He said that though he did not exactly remember many thingsbut overall, it was an exciting experience to get positive response from people all over and that they showered appreciation and love on him.

In one of my earlier posts in this series I had given the list of his filmography from 1967 to 1970 in this post here. That time I had written that I plan to present the list of his movies from 1971 and onwards in future posts to come.

I am presenting this list for 1971 and onwards up to 1980 here today. I have noted and compiled the details with the help of HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

(I have compiled the above list by checking the movie details in HFGK Vol-V for the years 1971-1980. For the movie ‘Archana-1973’ the details in HFGK does not mention the name of Junior Mehmood in the star-cast, however since I have presented a song from this movie, I was aware of Junior Mehmood’s appearance in this movie.
The above lists are open for correction/addition, if any, and scrutiny by knowledgeable readers.
(List of movies for 1981 and onwards needs to be compiled I will try to bring that here in future as and when I get the opportunity to present an article here.)

Coming back to the ‘series’ ‘Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood’, we started this series by discussing a song on ‘lottery’ and incidentally we are finishing up this series with a song related to ‘lottery’ 😊.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Thokar-1974’.

“Thokar-1974” was directed by Dilip Bose for ‘Movie Temple’. It was produced by Swarn Singh. It had Baldev Khosa, Alka, Jr. Mehmood, Joginder, Surekha, Brahmchari and Shivkumar with Sunder, Tun Tun, Rajan Haksar, Ram, S.K. Prem, Mumtaz Begum, Ravikant, Lolita Chatterjee, Ketty, Panna Kapur, Shefali, Inder Khosla, Dharmesh, Jai Kishan, Mona, Pt. Amar, Kamal, Manjit, Malini. Ravi Kapur, Paul Sharma, Sabeena, Sharat Rao, J.N. Batra, Darshan, Minoo Mehtab, Maruti, and Sudhir.

Zeb Rahman made a special appearance in this movie, and this movie introduced Poonam Vaidya.

Story Idea of this movie was by Baldev (I do not know if it is Baldev Khosa). Screenplay and dialogues were written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Editing of this movie was done by P.S. Wagle.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.01.1974.

This movie had five songs in it. Lyrics for four songs were written by Sajan Dehlvi and Kulwant Jani was the lyricist for one song.

Music was composed by Shamji Ghanshamji. Mohd Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Mukesh, Krishan Kalle had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. Sundar lip-syncs on screen. Junior Mehmood is not lip syncing the song (except couple of words) but he is present in this song performing with Sundar and another actor (I am unable to identify him). Many other artists are also seen in the picturisation..

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Lyrics are by Sajan Dehlvi and music is composed by Shamji Ghanshamji.

With this post we also conclude this series ‘Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood’.

It can be seen from the table of 1990 that Lata Mangeshkar sang just 12 songs in 9 movies released in 1990.
3 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1990 have been covered in the blog. All Lata songs from two movies (two songs each from “Aaj Ka Arjun” and one song from “Jeene Do”) have been covered. That leaves us with 9 songs from 7 movies of 1990 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Aag Ka Darya”(1990) is the first movie of 1990 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Aag Ka Darya”(1990) was produced by Produced by R Venkatraman and directed by S V Rajendra Singh. The movie had Dilip Kumar, Rekha, Amrita Singh, Avtar Gill, Padmini Kolhapure etc in it.

“Aag Ka Darya”(1990)had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Out of the remaining three songs, one song is a Lata Shabbir Kumar duet.

Here is that song. It is penned by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is the last song that Rajinder Krishan penned for Lata Mangeshkar. As mentioned earlier, Rajinder Krishan penned 555 songs (in 157 movies) in all for Lata Mangeshkar. These songs were released between 1949 and 1990.

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

Lyrics

rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhana hai
ek aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

jis raat chandaniya se ye chaand khafa hoga aa
jis raat chandaniya se ye chaand khafa hoga
us raat ke raahi ka socha bhi hai kya hoga
raste mein andhera hai aur door thhikaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

vo ghar bhi koi ghar hai deevaar na ho jismein
vo ghar bhi koi ghar hai deevaar na ho jismein
us pyaar ki kya keemat takraar na ho jismein
gussa to manaane ka bas ek bahaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

bhoole se koi aansu aankhon mein agar aaye ae
bhoole se koi aansu aankhon mein agar aaye
vo dil ki amaanat hai mitti mein na mil jaaye
ulfat ka vo moti hai palkon mein chhupaaaa hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

Today’s song is from an unknown film Maaf Kijiyega-1946. HFGK mentions ” Social Film” as its Genre, but none of the factors of this film support this claim. The director was Nari Ghadiyali – who was a specialist for action/stunt films. MD was K.Narayan rao, famous only for stunt films. The cast of the film also consisted of regular actors for stunt films, like Prakash(real name Hashmat ullah khan), Shanta Patel (a regular in Master Bhagwan’s stunt films), Dalpat (popular as Dalpat Kaka), Bibi, Chandrika etc etc. The songs were written by an unknown lyricst- Mustapha and were sung by ordinary singers-not any famous one. I wonder how such a combination can be suitable for a ” Social’ film ?

This Blog started in 2008 and I joined it as a commentor sometime in 2010. I don’t remember exactly when. Nowadays, whenever I have free time and nothing else to do, I visit the early pages of the Blog and see the songs and more importantly – the comments. In those early years and till about 2018 or so, there used to be a lot of comments by readers. I found that readers were from various other countries, but surprisingly, their knowledge about old films, songs and its artistes was quite noteworthy.

As the years passed by, the foreign readers’ number dwindled slowly, but readers from India increased in the comment section. One logical reason was that the readers from other countries were probably from the older generation, settled abroad. Hence as the time passed on slowly their activities must have got reduced. Some of the younger commentors from other countries, too, stopped their comments. They are, however, active on FaceBook. People like Lalitha ji, memsaab ji, Pamir Harvey, Santosh oza, Shekhar Gupta etc. stopped commenting. One name remains with the Blog consistently from Day-1 till today (albeit now occasionally) and that is Raja Swaminathan ji – whether he is in India or in Holland.

I encountered some funny incidents involving comments on the Blog. I remember one. In those days, except the Admins perhaps, no one else knew who ” Peevesie’s Mom” was in reality.
I was also active on FaceBook. One day a lady visitor to my Fb page – Nalini Krishnan – asked me on Fb, ” are you the same Arunkumar Deshmukh, who comments on atulsongaday?”
She was shocked to read my reply, ” yes, Peevesie’s Mom ji”. Possibly shocked, she asked me how I knew her name. It was actually very easy. Before replying her, I visited her Fb page and I found that she is Vaidehi’s mother. After reading a few more posts , it was easy to make 2 + 2 !

Another incident was comments by one ” IDL Man”. From his comments, I knew he was from Australia. There was another reader called ” BOODHEMIYAN “. He was from Dubai. One day ‘ IDL Man’ posted the following comment, on 12-6-2011….

Atul Bhai,

WHY YOUR BLOG IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD

I am also a deewana of old film music like you all.Having lot of spare time now,I surf the Internet.I realised that there are many Indian and Foregn persons equally interested/obsessed with old film charms.Many of them run their own blogs on old films/music.I decided to find out and visit every blog on the Internet.
I visited exactly 102 such blogs run by Indian and foreigners.Surprisingly,foreigners were more consistent than Indians.
i found that almost 85 % blogs are left unattended,halfway or no posting for the last few years.One more interesting point is many ladies are also running such blogs,of course under Pseudonyms.They are more consistent than men and get a good following too !
After a lot of screening,I shortlisted 7 blogs: 4 in wordpress and 3 independents.Two blogs are run by ladies,one each Indian and foreigner.
Finally,I came to a conclusion that your blog ATULSONGADAY WORDPRESS.COM is THE BEST,because:

1)You are a very honest person ,without any airs, when you present songs
2)your deep love of music and hard work is consistent and it shows.
3)you are very systematic and you think of your readers while making songs available to them in an easy way.
4)your earnestness and humble knowledge(without a show off) is appreciated and liked by your readers(apparent from the responses)
5)you are not biased or partial in selecting or writing about songs
6)your goodwill has attracted like minded supporters who help you by providing information on films, songs, singers, composers etc. Notable among them, as I found in last 6 months are–
a) Mr.Sudhir Kapoor-writes very good and simple articles, full of information about songs and personalities.
b) Mr,Nahm-always provides you with correct lyrics, titbits and useful information, besides suggesting songs.
3) Mr. Arunkumar Deshmkuh-I have no words for him. He seems to know all the old movies, anecdotes and details. His information is unique(Not on net anywhere).May be, as he knows so many languages, he might be getting it from books/articles in various languages. He is a storehouse of information.
4)Mr. Prakash chandra- very good suggestions of songs
5)Lalitha ji / Raja ji – They are not only your admirers but also supporters. Raja ji’s support is important as he himself is a blogger plus many more things.

Note; The second place is shared by MEMSAABSTORY AND DUSTEDOFF.

Atul Bhai,
please accept my congratulations and good wishes for the future.

-I.D.L.Man

In another an year or so, both these readers stopped commenting and disappeared for ever. I contacted the Grandson of actor/singer Parshuram, when he commented from New Zealand, on one of my posts. Similarly, actress Latika’s daughter from London commented and I got in touch with her.

There were days when lot of comments used to be made by the readers. In the last 2-3 years, the comments from the readers have dropped down considerably and noticeably. Difficult to know the reason.

However, since about a month or so I find that once again comments from new readers have increased Hope it keeps growing. Comments play an important role in a Blog. It gives readers’ reactions, additional information, encourages the authors of the post and generally works as a motivation.

Today’s song is sung by Kaushalya. Kaushalya was born at Lucknow in 1929. She was the daughter of the famous dancer Lachhoo Maharaj and actress Daya Devi. Being brought up in the house of dancer and actor, Kaushalya picked up Dance, Music and acting very early. She appeared as a child artiste in films from 1936, when she was just 7 year old. She worked in 11 films as a child artiste. After film Devbala-38, she did roles in Bhole bhale and Uski Tamanna-both in 1939, made by Sagar Movietone. She even sang in both films.

Then came films like Darshan and Ghar ki laaj, both 1941, and Baraat, Bharat milap, Station master and Swapna, all 42. The work poured on her till 1946, when she got married to a boy from Calcutta, when she had gone there for doing films. After marriage she found it difficult to work in films, but continued for some more films, till her last film Ek Do Teen-1953.

In all Kaushalya acted in 27 films and sang more than 100 songs in about 35 films, in her short career time. As a Heroine she had worked with Prithviraj Kapoor, Ulhas, Kumar, Ishwarlal etc.

With this song, film Maaf Kijiyega -1946 makes its Debut on this Blog.


Song- Joban roop bahaar Rasiya Kar lo chup ke pyaar (Maaf Keejiyegaa)(1946) Singer- Kaushalya, Lyricist-Mustapha Usman, MD- K Narayan Rao

Lyrics

Joban roop bahaar

I am poor in remembering important dates, as I have stressed many a times. And ith passage of time, I am actually becoming more absent minded. We already have our anniversary page, hich is consulted by many music lovers, but I have not consulted it myself for quite some time. So, I come to know about important music related dates from others, who themselves may have come to know about these dates from our anniversary page ! 🙂

Today morning, I came to know that it is Mukesh’s birth anniversary. And I also noticed that as many as two Mukesh songs were covered yesterday (21 july 2021) and that took the tally of Mukesh songs in the blog to 799 !

So fate had ordained that Mukesh would complete his 800th song in the blog on his birth anniversary !

With so many Mukesh songs already covered in the blog, just a few Mukesh songs are left to be covered. One would expect that most well known Mukesh songs are already covered in the blog. And they are right. Still, there are some Mukesh songs that are so far still at large. There is one such song that readily came to my mind. I myself was surprised to note that such a well known Mukesh song was still not there in the blog.

This song is from “Dharmatma”(1975). The movie had five songs in it, including one multiple version song. The five songs were sung by five singers, namely Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Mukesh and Kanchan. While the first three singers sang one solo song each, Mukesh and Kanchan sang two duets in the movie. Both duets were extremely popular songs of those days. The first duet, Kya khoob lagti ho badi sundar dikhti ho(Dharmatma), is already there in the blog.

Here is the second Mukesh Kanchan duet from “Dharmatma”(1975). It is picturised on Rekha and Feroz Khan. Rekha is with him, and Feroz Khan is dreaming about Hema Malini. This way, this song is similar in picturisation to the “Gora Aur Kaala”(1972) song covered in the blog yesterday. 🙂

Indeewar in the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

As discussed above, This song is the 800th Mukesh song in the blog. Quite an appropriate song to mark the birth anniversary of legendary singer Mukesh.

With this song, all the songs of “Dharmatma”(1975) are now covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai (Dharmatma)(1975) Singer-Kanchan, Mukesh, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji
Chorus

Lyrics

ru ru ru ru
ru ru ru ru

tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai

tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai
pyaar bhara dil kisi ko diya hai
pyaar kahaan apni kismat mein
pyaar kahaan apni kismat mein
pyaar ka bas deedaar kiya hai

tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai
pyar bhara dil kisi ko diya hai

aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aaa aa aa

tum ho itne haseen ke tum par laakhon marti hongi

tum ho itne jawaan, hazaaron aahen bharti hongi
haan haan
aahen bharti hongi
kis ko kaha tumne apna aa
ban ke rahe kis ka sapna aa
sapne to sapne hain aakhir
sapne to sapne hain aakhir
kis ne inhen saakaar kiya hai

tum ne kisi se kabhi pyar kiya hai
pyaar bhara dil kisi ko diya hai

aaa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aaa aa
aa aa aa aa

maine dekha haal dilon ka
dekhe do dilwaale
maine dekhe do dilwaale
ek dooje ke pyaar pe donon jaan lutaane waale ae
donon jaan lutaane waale
pyaar ka saara jahaan dushman
dekh saka na unka milan

auron ki chhodo, apni sunaao
auron ki chhodo, apni sunaao
tum ne kahaan dil haar diya hai
tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai
pyaar bhara dil kisi ko diya hai

Mukesh and his Composers -21
————————————————

Did Mukesh act in ‘Uss Paar’ (1944)?

The correct and factual answer along with credible proof to the above question is of historical importance as it refers to the first ever payback rendered by Mukesh.

If Mukesh has not acted in the film, then apparently it will be his first playback.

If he has acted in some capacity, then there are again two possibilities.

  1. He was a side actor and the duet with Kusum was featured on him only.
  2. He had a role in the film, but said duet was picturized on someone else.

One song from ‘Uss Paar’ (1944) has been covered on the blog and it is in fact, the elephant in the room.

Sudhir ji in his extraordinary series ‘The voice of Mukesh’ has covered this duet with Kusum Mantri and has considered it to be the first playback of Mukesh.

All indications are that Mukesh did not act in the movie, but undeniable proof is yet to surface.

Coming to the next post in this series, we take up the career of Mukesh with composer-singer Bulo C Rani today.

Yes, I agree that Bulo C Rani had nothing to do with ‘Uss Paar’ (1944) as it was composed by Feroz Nizami.

But then while searching for some information on Bulo C. Rani, I happened to refer to the book Hindi Film Song by Ashok Da. Ranade. In his description of the works of Bulo C. Rani, Ashok ji in his book on p. 226 says about the film ‘Moorti’ (1945).

In it “badariya baras gai” – which was Mukesh’s first song as the composer often claimed with pride – won popularity.

There we go again. Was Bulo C Rani implying ‘Uss Paar’ duet of Mukesh was not his first playback. Since Bulo C. Rani was very much part of HFM during 1944 -1945, he must have known about Mukesh’s actor-singer songs to take the credit of composing the first song (playback) of Mukesh.

Matters get more complicated with Mukesh with many firsts such as first song, first playback, first popular song etc. And before all these we have his six NFS which he recorded in 1939 at Delhi before coming to Bombay.

When the question referred in the very first line of this post is addressed satisfactorily with proof, I intend to write a separate post on the many firsts of Mukesh with a detailed table.

Coming to the discussions on today’s collaboration, I am happy to bring forth the many memorable and sweet songs that Mukesh sang under the baton of Bulo C Rani.

Before I go into the details of the songs, here is a brief and bullet point summary on the life of Bulo C Rani much of it from the book referred above.

  • He was born on 6 May 1920 in Hyderabad Sindh and his originally name was Bulo Chandiramani Ramchandani.
  • He came to Bombay in 1942 with DN Madhok and joined Ranjit Films to assist Kemchand Prakash.
  • In his initial part of film career, he sang a few songs under different composers.
  • He is credited for composing for the first Sindhi film Abana (1958)

Apart from the above, I request interested readers to apprise themselves of the life and career of the composer with the following three links in which the respective authors have done enough and valuable research.

 

S.No Name of song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 Badariya baras gayi uss paar Moorti (1945) Khursheed and Hamida Bano Pt Indra Chandra
2 Haseeno se haseeno ko Moorti (1945) Pt Indra Chandra
3 Maana ke tum haseen ho Moorti (1945) Pt Indra Chandra
4 Pardesi dhola Prabhu Ka Ghar (1945) Mohantara Pt Indra Chandra
5 Jaa parwaane jaa Rajputaani (1946) Hamida Bano Pt Indra Chandra
6 Kiye jaa pyaar Rajputaani (1946) Pt Indra Chandra
7 Kaise bataaun unse Anjuman (1948) Shamshad Begam Majrooh Sultanpuri
8 Woh teer kaleje par Anjuman (1948) Majrooh Sultanpuri
9 Unki gali mein aaye hum Nazaare (1949) Rajinder Krishan
10 Armaan bhara dil toot gaya Wafa (1950) Lata Hasrat Jaipuri
11 Aansoo bhaavo tum udhar Pyaar Ki Baaten (1951) Geeta Roy Majrooh Sultanpuri
12 Mast chaandni jhoom rahi Pyaar Ki Baaten (1951) Geeta Roy M L Khanna
13 Ae Momino Suno Ye Kahani Abdullah (1960) Shewan Rizvi
14 Ham bhi kho gaye hain Madam Zorro (1962) Kamal Barot Shewan Rizvi
15 Main hoon deewaanaa Haqdaar (1964) Prem Warbartani

The above table provides the complete table of songs composed by Bulo C Rani and sung by Mukesh. It appears, Mukesh was the favorite singer of the composer especially in the late forties and early fifties. Why the composer used Mukesh sparingly in the sixties is not clearly known.

Some beautiful ghazals and delightful duets were the hallmark of the combo. The melodious songs are well known to avid music lovers and I am avoiding describing them again.

As usual, Shri Harish ji has confirmed, correctness of the above table and added useful information that Mukesh sang for the composer, two more duets with Asha Hargunani for a Sindhi film Naqli Shaan (1972) with lyrics by Krishna Rahi.

  1. Ankh Phadke Dil Dhadke
  2. Haseen Raat Aa Mast Aa Fizaa

Out of the 15 songs enlisted above only one from the film ‘Abdullah’ (1960) remains to be covered on the blog and is presented in this post.

 

Song – Ae Momino Suno Ye Kahaani Namaaz Ki  (Abdullah) (1960) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Shewan Rizwi, MD – Bulo C Rani

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki
hai hum pe farz bandagi banda nawaaz ki
ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki

mulk e arab me ek haseena thi nek naam
karti thi apne rabb ki ibadadat wo subh o sham
usko namaaz padne ka bachpan se shauk tha
ik waqt ki namaaz bhi karti na thi kaza
nanha sa ek laal tha us paak baaz ka
gurbat me shukr karti thi wo beniyaaz ka
masoom bachcha bhookh se rota jo beqarar
pani pila pila ke thapakti thi bar bar
guzre isi tarah jo museebat me teen saal
shauhar ke dil me uspe safar ka hua khayal
shauhar ki bat sun ke wo majboor ho gayi
do dil ki ye judaai thi manjur ho gayi

biwi ko rota chhod ke jab ghar se wo chala
masoom bachcha baap se apne lipat gaya
samjha ke maa ne god me bachche ko le liya
wo chup rahi to ashqon ne haafiz khuda kaha
nikla ghareeb ghar se ghareeb ul watan hua
jungle ki tez dhoop me aur bhookh me chala
nagaah ek daku ki us par padi nazar
zalim ne mara zulm se ek teer taak kar
lagte hi teer dil pe wo chakra ke gir pada
waake mein teen waqt the duniya se chal basa
daaku karib aaya use dekhne laga
bhai ko murda dekh ke wo tharthara gaya
roya lipat lipat ke biraadar ki lash se
sar phodta tha apni hi bhai ko mar ke

kehta tha ro ke haaye ye kya maine kar diya
bhai ka khoon apne hi daman me bhar diya
munh peet’ta hua wo sehar ki taraf chala
bhabhi ko apne kehne ko pur dard maajra
ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki

masroof har namaaz mein wo ek zaat thi
go din ki bhookh mein bhi thi mashgool e bandagi
daaku ne raah zal mein yaa shauhar ke bhai ne
tab aa ke tod daale ummeedon ke aaine
kehne laga suhaag tera maine le liya
apne hi haathon qatl biraadar ko kar diya
daaku gunehgaar ko rehban ko dekh le
khoon se bhara hua mere daaman ko dekh le
ye sun ke cheekhi aur wo behosh ho gayi
duniya se bekhabar wo gaflat mein so gayi
roi tadap ke khwaab mein shauhar ko dekh kar
dil tukde tukde ho gaya dilbar ko dekh kar
nanhe ka baazu thaam liya dil ko thaam kar
kehne lagi ke le chalo shauhar ki laash par
al qissa roti peet’ti pahunchi wo laash par
kadmon pe sar ko rakh diya shauhar ko dekh kar
fariyaad rabb se karne lagi ho ke beqaraar
utri falak beewi koi sun ke ye pukaar
haathon mein ek jaam tha munh par naqaab thi
rehmat baras rahi thi charaafa hijaab ki
wo beewi boli is pe chhidak de ye jaam tu
aur padh ke is se pooch le allah ka naam tu
paani chhidak ke naam e khuda us pe dam diya
kudrat khuda ki dekhiye wo murda jee utha. . .

ye dekh kar lipat gayi shauhar se wo ghareeb
kehne lagi ke mil gaya mujh ko mera habeeb
daaman pakad ke beewi ka phir poochhne lagi
tum kaun ho khudaara bata do ye raaz bhi
wo beewi boli main hi khuda ki namaaz hoon
maalik ki bandgi hoon barkat ka raaz hoon
apne namaazion ki main bigdi banaati hoon
apne namaazion pe main rehmat lutaati hoon
gaayab hua ye keh ke farishta namaaz ka
padh kar namaaz dekho karishma namaaz ka

padh kar namaaz dekho karishma namaaz ka. . .

Hullo Atuldom

I have been wanting to send this song for almost a week or ten days now. I had first thought of 12th July which was the death anniversary of Jubilee Kumar a.k.a Rajendra Kumar. But, I was unable to, due to various reasons.

Then, yesterday, 20th July the birth anniversary of Rajendra Kumar- missed that too. Why? I was too busy attending (online) birthday parties. And reading all the blog-birthday posts. That simple.

But today is another opportunity to present this song to the blog-followers. Anand Bakshi – the lyricist- has his birth anniversary today. Would have been 91.

The song from the 1972 release “Gora Aur Kala” is composed by Laxmi-Pyare and sung by Mohd Rafi. The movie had a cast of Rajendra Kumar, Prem Chopra, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, Sundar, Premnah, Rajan Haksar, and two very young beauties (my personal favourites) Hema Malini and Rekha with Sulochana playing the mother of the two Rajendra Kumars (yes he played a double role in the movie). This song is sung by the Karan Singh (the better looking and well-mannered twin) in a disguise in the court. I haven’t seen the movie but I am sure that it is an attempt to fool Madan Puri who is on the throne (I think he plays Hema’s father), along with Prem Chopra and others in the court. The power of the song is seen in the fact that the Princess Anuradha (Hema) starts dancing to the song.

On reviewing what I have written in the beginning of this post, a thought crossed my mind. If Atulji had given us such excuses this blog would not have completed 13 years – 4,749 days – 16,484 posts. (as on 19th July). A statement (in Sudhirji’s post of the 19th) “Do you know that the average daily rate of posting is upwards of three posts per day. Try doing that seven days a week, 365 days a year, and continuously at that rate for 13 years. Try writing a letter each to three friends every day, day on day, for 13 years. My, does that no yet boggle the mind.” also set me thinking.

Hatsoff to Atulji for relentlessly giving us more than one song-a-day.

Today’s song is from the film Maharani Minal Devi-1946. This film was made by Lakshmi Productions, Bombay, owned by the Director Chimanlal Trivedi. This film was made on a remarkable historical personality from Gujarat.

Bombay film industry has made more than 12000 films so far, on various Genres, but it’s score on making films on Historical Indian personalities is very pathetic. While films on Mughal Kings, Queens and other personalities were made in all decades since the films started talking, not much focus was given on Indian historyHero and Heroines. Not that no films were made at all on them, but if you see its number, there can not be a justification for the large gap.

In the history of India, there were hundreds of such worthy sons and daughters who fought for the country, brought social reforms, did extraordinary work for the people and generally did things for which the country remembers them proudly. Actually,in every state of India, there are Heroes and Heroines who did a lot of good work for the people, in the past few hundred years. Sadly, Hindi films are very poor on this count.

However, I find that regional cinemas are way ahead of Hindi cinema in this matter. Particularly I would quote Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Bangla films in the first list. The second list is of Marathi and Oriya films. Mind you, I am not talking about films on religious personalities and saints like Kabir, Tulsida etc. Even in this category, very few are the subject matter of Hindi films.

People like Rana Pratap, Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar, Rabindranath Tagore, Dhondo Keshav Karve, Rani Chennamma etc etc deserved Hindi films. The entire focus was on Mughals and those who came from outside.The regional films at least did some justice by making films on their Heroes/heroines. Tamil and Bangla films are leaders in this. The strong Regional Pride was the causal factor essentially but honouring heroes is a matter of appreciation. Films on Babar, Humayun, Shahjehan, Bahadurshah Zafar and the likes of them are made in plenty, for obvious reasons, but how many films were made on Savarkar, Shivaji, Rana Pratap, Ashoka the great, Jhansi ki Rani etc ? Leave the older ones. Are there films on Indira Gandhi, Nehru, Gandhi ? A British person had to come here to make a film on Gandhi !

During the British rule – till 1947 – it was probably not possible, allowed or was risky, but since 1947 till date what was the problem ? I feel sad at this state of affairs in making films. Luckily, in the last few years, some enterprising filmmakers have dared to make films on Indian Heroes. I do hope that the situation will improve further and films on Indian heroes/Heroines (there are plenty of them) will be made.

Film maharani Minal devi-1946 is a film on a brave, intelligent, kind and Patriotic personality from Gujarat. I could not get any information on her, the story of the film or other details. Fortunately, I could find a site http://www.streeshakti.com, wherein I found a note on her. here it is to get an idea who she was and what she did….

“Minal Devi or Mayanalla, a famous queen of eleventh century Gujarat, is remembered as an able and just administrator. She was the daughter of Jayakeshin, a king of the Kadamba dynasty in Karnataka and was married to Karna I, a Chalukya king of Anahillapatanawada who met an early death, leaving his queen and young son Siddharaja Jayasimha. Minal Devi acted as regent for her son, who went on to become a legendary hero. An incident described in Rajashekhar Suri’s Prabandha Kosha testifies to the fact that she inspired him in many of his warlike exploits.
She also managed affairs of state, built several monuments and lakes and was responsible for the remission of the tax on pilgrims visiting the Somnath temple. Two lakes built in her period were Minalasar or Munsar near Viramgam and Malva at Dhavalakka or Dholka in Ahmedabad. According to legend, there was a house owned by a woman at the proposed site of the lake Malva, which needed to be demolished to give the lake a regular shape. The queen offered a big sum of money to the woman for her house, but she refused, saying, ‘I shall be famous with your lake,’ thus threatening to sacrifice her life if her house was touched. The queen did not coerce her, showing herself to be a just ruler. This event led to the Gujarati saying: ‘If you want to see justice, go to Dholka and have a look at Malva lake.’

Minal Devi is mentioned with high esteem in contemporary literature. A Sanskrit play entitled Mudritakumudachandra-prakarana depicts a learned dispute between the Digambaras and Svetambaras, the two major Jain sects. One topic in this dispute is whether a woman can achieve salvation. The Svetambaras here claim that women possessing sattwa (identity: an inner quality of goodness) could attain salvation and cite Sita from mythology and Minal Devi in the court of Siddharaja Jayasimha as examples.”

The film had 7 songs written by two lyricists, composed by Saraswati Devi-the music Director. The film was directed by Chimanlal Trivedi. The cast of the film was Prem Adeeb, Leela desai, Durga Khote, Jagdish bSethi, Agha, Sankatha prasad and many others. Director Chimanlal trivedi was a remarkable enterprising person.

Chimanlal Trivedi, was one of the major filmmakers of the 30s and the 40s decade. He was more a Producer businessman than a Director. While he directed hardly 7 films, he produced close to 50 films- all having A grade actors, directors and composers !

Born on 19-3-1909 at a village near Anand in Gujarat he was from a Brahmin family. He did his schooling in Ahmedabad and technical graduation from Baroda. Being an expert in weaving, he took up a job as a weaving Master in Calcutta. Fond of writing, he started writing Dramas, which were staged in Bengal and Gujarat. He was attracted towards Cinema and tried some work in New Theatres. Knowing that the real playing field is Bombay he reached there. He wrote stories for the film Chevrolet-36 and Danger Signal-37 for Mohan pictures.

He established his own production company CIRCO (Cine Industries Recording COmpany) in 1937. By 1943, he had made 12 films. He preferred not to direct his films, but appointed directors like Mohan Sinha for Laxmi-40, Anuradha-40 and Vanmala-41, Balwant Bhatt for Suhag-40 and Madhusudan-41, A R Kardar for Swami-41 and Nai Duniya-42 and Debki Bose for Apna Ghar-42.

He had the art of getting the most popular stars for his films like, Prithviraj kapoor, Chandramohan, Durga Khote,Mazhar khan, Bibbo,Surendra, Jairaj, Sitara, Jeevan, Yaqub, Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Vishnupant Pagnis,Leela Desai, Pahadi Sanyal, Shanta Apte and many others. Even big directors like Debki Bose,Nitin Bose, Kardar,Mohan Sinha, Sarvottam Badami, Nandlal Jaswantlal,Profull Roy, Sudhir Sen, R S Chaudhary, Phani mujumdar, Balwant Bhatt etc. worked for him. From Prabhat he brought Shanta Apte for Rs.1000 pm, and also Chandramohan, Pagnis and Mazhar khan. His friend Chandulal Shah followed his way and brought K L Saigal from New Theatres !

C L Trivedi was an expert in gathering funds for his films. After CIRCO at Parel, he started Laxmi Productions at Andheri, in 1942. He made mera Gaon,Sharafat,Bhagya Laxmi,Kadambari,Tamanna,Inkaar,Mohabbat,Miss Devi etc. In 1951, it was Supreme Pictures, Trivedi Productions was in 1952, Kala Kendra in 1953 and with Chitra Bharati in 1954, he made 13 films upto 1961. Top Composers like Timir Baran,Ashok Ghosh,Rafiq Gaznavi,K C Dey,Saraswati Devi,Husnlal-Bhagatram and Naushad gave music to his films.

In the end, he turned to Stage and started Abhinay Bharati. He staged many dramas in Bombay and Gujarat. Chimanlal always went for big names. He had close relations with Nehru, Menon, Morarji Desai, and other National leaders. His wife Kantaben was a Leader herself. Chimanlal Trivedi died on 25-11-1973. His wife, 3 sons and a daughter settled in the USA.

It may be a coincidence, but Gujarati businessmen like Chimanlal Trivedi, Chimanlal Desai,Chimanlal Luhar, Chaturbhuj Doshi, Chimankant Desai, Chunibhai Desai and Chandulal Shah made sizable contribution to Hindi cinema in the first 20 years of the Talkie era. All names started with CH ( ? ) !

Today’s song is sung by Rajkumari dubey. With this song the film makes its Debut on this Blog.

The tale of two brothers – Hafiz Khan and Aziz Khan, sons of the Ustad Waheed Khan of Etawaha Gharana is not only saddening but also contrasting in the end. After a promising start in Hindi films as a playback singer and the music director in the 1940s, Hafiz Khan died in 1972 in extreme poverty. Aziz Khan, on the other hand, after a brief stint with Hindi film industry as a music director, reverted to playing Sitar and trained his son, Ustad Parvez Khan who is now an internationally well-known Sitar player.

Etawaha Gharana popularised the Sitar and Surbahar and Ustad Waheed Khan was a famous exponent of both these musical instruments. He appeared in Satyajit Ray’s ‘Jalsaagar (1958) in which he can be seen playing Raag Bihaag on Surbahar in one of the scenes of the film. Ustad Waheed Khan was a court musician at the court of Holkar of Indore for 18 years, in the court of Maharaja of Patiala for 3 years and later in the court of Nizam of Hyderabad until 1948. Naturally, he wanted his two sons to continue the Gharana tradition of playing Sitar and Surbahar. With this aim in mind, Ustad Waheed Khan gave extensive training in Sitar, Surbahar and vocal music to his two sons. At the age of around 12 , Hafiz Khan was sent to Kolkata to receive further training in Sitar and Surbahar from his uncle, Ustad Inayat Khan (father of sitar maestro Ustad Vilayat Khan) who found Hafiz Khan to be a promising student of Sitar and Surbahar. He used to accompany his uncle in his sitar/surbahar concerts.

In Kolkata, Hafiz Khan got mesmerised with the songs of K L Saigal and Pankaj Mullick. He was now more interested in becoming a singer in Hindi films than learning Sitar and Surbahar. On a visit to Hyderabad to spend some time with his father who had then become a court musician in the court of Nizam, Hafiz Khan got a chance to sing songs on Hyderabad Radio. Knowing fully well of his father’s strong aversion to film songs, he had to sing on the radio without revealing his name. He got some money for his singing on the radio.

Knowing that his father would never allow him to sing for Hindi films, one day Hafiz Khan ran away from Hyderabad with his money earned from radio singing to Mumbai some time in 1934. After doing some odd jobs in the film studio including small roles as actor, producer Chandrarao Kadam, who was producing ‘Bahadur Kisaan’(1938) for which Mir Sahab was entrusted with the music direction, gave him a chance to sing a solo song ‘baalam gaye pardes ri sajni’ which became his debut playback song in a film. With this song, Hafiz Khan became known as a singer. Since he wanted to hide his name associated with film songs from his father, Mir Sahab gave him a new name ‘Khan Mastana’ keeping in view his jolly nature.

After the release of ‘Bahadur Kissan’ (1938), Mir Sahab joined Minerva Movietone as the music director. He also took Khan Mastana to Minerva Movietone where he was taken as a playback singer on a 3-year contract. During this period, he sang songs in ‘Jailor’ (1938), ‘Talaaq’ (1938), ‘Pukaar’ (1939) ‘Main Haari’ (1940), etc. His songs from these films raised his popularity graph. During the last year of the contract with Minerva Movietone, Sohrab Modi wanted him to play sitar in addition to his contract as playback singer. Khan Mastana refused to play sitar as he did not wish to become a musician. He left Minerva Movietone. By that time, he had also got an offer from a film producer to work as a music director (probably for ‘Virginia’, 1940). Since Sohrab Modi did not want to lose Khan Mastana, he gave him a chance as a music director in his film ‘Vasiyat’ (1940) which he accepted as a free-lancer.

In around 1945, Khan Mastana’s younger brother, Aziz Khan had also joined Bombay film industry as a music director. To conceal his identity for his association with films, he had also changed his name to ‘Aziz Hindi’. By 1947, Khan Mastana had become a top male playback singer next only to G M Durrani and had given music direction to as many as 23 films. Everything was going very fine in his filmy career. He had money, fame and the luxury of staying in any one of his 5 flats in Mumbai. But his misfortune started when he paid a visit to Hyderabad sometime in 1947. His father who was a court musician at that time with Nizam, did not allow him to return to Mumbai. Instead, he pressurized Khan Mastana to learn classical music and sing in front of him rather than in the films. This continued for almost a year which led to delay in films for which he was committed to complete the recording of the songs as playback singer and as a music director. The producers of such films had to engage some other music directors to complete their films. Khan Mastana’s unprofessional attitude resulted in losing some prospective films as the music director.

In early 1948, Khan Mastana once again ran away from Hyderabad for Mumbai. One year of the absence from the film industry is sufficient for a film artist to be forgotten. Khan Mastana managed to get some playback singing assignments to re-establish himself in the film industry. One of the songs in which he sang with Mohammed Rafi was ‘watan ki raah pe watan ke naujawaan shahid ho’ from ‘Shaheed’ (1948) which became very popular. When Khan Mastana has just settled down in the film industry mainly as a playback singer in his second innings, his father came to Mumbai and forcibly took him ( also his brother, Aziz Khan) back to Hyderabad. This time, he was trapped in Hyderabad for about 2 years.

When Khan Mastana returned to Mumbai after 2 years – probably in 1951, he had not only faced the wrath of producers and music directors for his unprofessional behaviour, he had to face stiff competition of emerging playback singers like Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and Manna Dey. Some new music directors had also emerged during his absence who were happy with the emerging playback singers. Khan Mastana realised that his days as playback singer and the music director were over. In his third inning in film industry, he could get only a handful of songs to sing. He sang his last song as a playback singer, zindagi hai yaa koi toofaan hai in ‘Zindagi Yaa Toofaan’ (1958) which became his swan song.

From the mid 1950s up to his death in March 1972, Khan Mastana lived a life of extreme poverty. During his heydays, he lavishly spent money on his friends who also made him addicted to some vices including drinking. So, he had not saved money for the future. He was staying with his family in a small room mocated in a lane adjunct to Mahim Dargah. He had got afflicted with paralysis in 1966. His only son got similar affliction at the age of 14.

Khan Mastana who had sung nearly 150 songs, composed music in around 30 films besides acting in around 10 films died unsung in abject poverty in March 1972.

What a sad end of a lineage from the Etawah Gharana. His nephew, Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan (son of his brother, Aziz Khan) who is an accomplished sitar player of international repute is of the view that going by the recordings of his uncle’s Hindustani classical renditions and sitar/surbahar recitals available with the family’s archive, Khan Mastana would have become one of the leading exponents of Hindustani classical music if he had concentrated on playing Sitar/Surbahar and as a classical vocalist rather than in the Hindi film industry.

‘Muqabala’ (1942) was one of the films of Khan Mastana’s heydays for which he was not only the music director, he also sang for himself in the film and also provided playback singing for other actors. This film seems to have been produced at a time when Wadia Movietone was in the verge of a split between Wadia Brothers. The film was made under the banner of J B H Wadia Productions but it was a Homi Wadia presentation. The film was jointly directed by Batuk Bhatt (Nanabhai Bhatt) and Babubhai Mistry. The star cast included Nadia and Yaqub in the lead role supported by Srinivas, Rajni, Dalpat, Nazira, Agha, Jal Khambata, M K Hasan, Baby Madhuri etc.

The film had 9 songs of which 3 songs have been covred in the Blog. All the songs were written by A Karim. I am presenting the film’s 4th song, ‘mujrim hoon mohabbat ka jo chaahe saza dena’ which is picturised on Yaqub. Agha is also seen in the song picturization.

Almost all on-line resources mention Yaqub as the singer. But it is apparent that the voice in the song is that of Khan Mastana.
