“Lav Kush”(1951) was produced by Babubhai Shukla and directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Shree Bhanu Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nirupa Roy, Prem Adib, Umakant, Amirbai Karnataki, Badri Prasad, Dinesh, Mahesh etc in it.

This mythological movie had seven songs in it that have become rare songs by now.

Here is the first song from “Lv Kush”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Neelkanth Tiwari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shanti Kumar.

Only the audio of this song is availablle. From the cast of the movie, it appears to me that this song was picturised on Nirupa Roy who must have played Sita with Prem Adib playing Ram.

With this song, “Lav Kush”(1951) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Hey chaand tum chitchor (Lav Kush)(1951) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Neelkanth Tiwari, MD-Shanti Kumar

Lyrics

Muslim socials, one of the genres of Hindi films, came into prominence during 1940s when ‘Qaidi’ (1940), produced by Film Corporation of India, Calcutta became a box office hit. Thereafter, in the 1940s, films like ‘Maasoom’ (1941), ‘Yaad’ 1942), ‘Naukar’ (1943) ‘Najma’ (1943), ‘Ismat’ (1944), ‘Zeenat’ (1945), ‘Pehli Nazar’ (1945), ‘Nek Parween’ (1946), ‘Shama’ (1946), ‘Dard, (1947), ‘Elan’ (1947), ‘Kaneez’ (1949) etc were released and most of them which became box office successes.

MEHANDI (1947) also belonged to the genre of Muslim social film which was produced under the banner of Fazli Brothers. It was directed by Sibtain Fazli. The star cast included Karan Diwan, Nargis, Begum Para, Ghory, Murad, Jillo Bai, Pratima Devi, Anwari, Jani Babu etc. The gist of the story, based on a review of the film in the March 1948 issue of ‘Filmindia’ magazine is as under:

Kulsum (Nargis) and Nadira (Begum Para) are friends. Kulsum is poor while Nadira is rich and fashionable. Kulsum gets married to a poor school teacher (Karan Diwan) who loses his job. With the money raised by selling Kulsum’s ornaments, her husband goes to Europe. He returns and becomes the Principal of a school where he meets Nadira. He is now interested in marrying Nadira without telling her that he was already married to Kulsum.

On the day of the marriage, both friends – Kulsum and Nadira meet. Soon the story gets unfolded in which her husband is exposed. After a long lecture by Kulsum, her husband realises his wrong step and thus saved from the bigamy though with consent, he could have four wives.

The film failed at the box office. It is clear that there was no novelty in the story of the film as the audience had already been exposed to such love triangles in films like ‘Pehli Nazar’ (1945), and ‘Dard’(1947). I am surprised that the reviewer of the film has criticised the musical score of Ghulam Haider. I find that 5 out of 7 songs are melodious for my ears.

The film had 8 songs written by Saghar Nizami (7) and Majrooh Sultanpuri (1) which were set to music by Ghulam Haider. 4 songs have been covered in the Blog. I am presenting the 5th song ‘hai dil hi dil mein dil ki tamanna’ which is penned by Saghar Nizami.

HFGK is silent about the singer of the song. An uploader has uploaded this incomplete song on YT who has mentioned the name of the singer as Munawwar Sultana. However, the source of the mp3 clip of the song with me has mentioned the name of Zeenat Begum as the singer. I have checked the voice in the song with that of Munawwar Sultana in ab dil mein hai barbaad tamanna ke siwaa kyaa and the voice of Zeenat Begum in allah khata kya hai gareebon ki bataa de. I am convinced that the voice in the song under discussion is that of Zeenat Begum.

This song should be called as ‘dil’ song as this word has been used 52 times in the song.

Another feature of this song is that the prelude and interlude orchestration of this song reminds me of the orchestration style of O P Nayyar. Did O P Nayyar assist Ghulam Haider in orchestration in this film ? Incidentally, it was reported that Ghulam Haider had made use of O P Nayyar for scoring the background music in ‘Kaneez’(1949).

Today (20 january 2017) is the 12th death anniversary of Parveen Babi (4 April 1949 – 20 January 2005). She was the classiest and prettiest leading actress of 1970s as far as I was concerned. Unlike most other leading actresses of her time, she sadly had a disturbed life post retirement when she suffered from mental disorders viz paranoia, schzopheria etc and she met with an anonymous death staying alone. Her death in fact was discovered on 22 january 2005 after her residential society secretary alerted the police that she had not collected milk and newspapers from her doorstep for three days. Police speculated that she was dead for about 72 hours before her body was discovered. That is how her death has been estimated to have taken place on 20 january 2005.

Quite a sad end for the most glamorous and sought out leading lady of 1970s and 1980s.

As a tribute to Parveen Babi, here is a song from “Trimurti”(1974). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

This song is picturised on Parveen Babi and Sanjay Khan, with Rakesh roshan also visible momentarily.

Though I was at the prime of my Hindi movie songs listening phase in 1970s, I had never heard this song before ! That too when it sounds quite a classy song, composed by none other than R D Burman.

But then what can R D Burman do alone if got no support from the actors of the movie. This movie had Sanjay Khan as the hero. Expecting Sanjay Khan to contribute in making a movie succeed because of his screen presence was like expecting a number eleven batsman to singlehandedly win you a cricket match with bat.

Anyway, here is this obscure song from a forgotten movie called “Trimurti”(1974). I never thought that I would have to use this phrase for a movie whose songs were composed by R D Burman. But that is life.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra bandb that is how I became aware about this song.

With this song, “Trimurti”(1974) makes its debut in the blog.

“Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein”(1977) was produced by A Khalia and Nariman Baria and directed by Meraj Ansari for Navsampati Productions, Bombay. This movie had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Farida Jalal, Leela Chitnis, Master Raju Shrestha, Indrani Mukherjee, Amjad Khan, Asrani, Kanhaiyalal, Leela Mishra, Jeetendra, Rekha, Aruna Irani, Om Shivpuri, Sharma, Pratima Devi, Dhumal, Shahid Bijnori, Sunder etc in it.

Four songs from the movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth and final song from “Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein”(1977) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar, with humming by Lata. Gulzar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a heartbroken Rajesh Khanna on realising that Hema Malini loved Jeetendra (Playing a fauzi) and not him as he mistakenly belived. And so he is trying to drown his sorrow by drinking. Asrani is his commanion in the daaru adda.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra long back. Devnagri script lyrics of this song are by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, “Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein”(1977) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

PRATIMA (1945) was produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies and it was directed by Jairaj. Dilip Kumar and Swarnlata were in the lead roles with Jyoti, Shah Nawaz, P F Peetahwala, Mumtaz Ali, Mukri etc in supporting roles. It was the second film for Dilip Kumar. Among the films in which Dilip Kumar acted in the 1940s, ‘Pratima’ (1945) may well be his least known film. I was surprised to note that not much information about the film was available on ‘Filmindia’ magzines of 1945 issues. The film had not fared well at the box office.

‘Pratima’ (1945) was produced in the midst of a turmoil in Bombay Talkies in the wake of the exodus of many of its stalwarts like Shashdhar Mukherjee, Ashok Kumar, Gyan Mukherjee, Savak Vacha etc in 1944 to form Filmistan. The films produced under the new management in Bombay Talkies – ‘Chaar Aankhen’ (1944) and ‘Jwaar Bhata’ (1944) had flopped. On top of it, Dilip Kumar did not make a good impression both on the audience as well as on the critics as an actor.

Both Dilip Kumar and Mridula made their debut in Bombay Talkies ‘Jwaar Bhata’ (1944). After the film’s release, most of the Bombay Talkies staff had more favourable impression about Mridula than Dilip Kumar as actors. They expected a brighter future for Mridula’s rather that for Dilip Kumar. However, Devika Rani decided to give another chance for Dilip Kumar in ‘Pratima’ (1945) which was incidentally the last film produced under her reign in Bombay Talkies. As things turned out later, Dilip Kumar has become one of the legendary actors of Hindi film industry while Mridula was relegated to doing subsidiary roles.

As I said earlier, ‘Pratima’ (1945) did not get much coverage in ‘Filmindia’ magazines of that period nor was the film reviewed. Luckily, I got a gist of the story line of the film in a book ‘Hero’ – Vol-1’ written by Ashok Raj on the internet.

Rajan (Dilip Kumar) is a persuasive lover entangled in a suspense plot. He is in love with a poor girl Pratima (Swarnlata) who has been brought up by Pravasi (Pithawala), a curio dealer. Pravasi was once a dread dacoit. However, Rajan’s family wishes him to marry the wealthy Lal Sahab’s spoilt daughter (probably, Jyoti).

In the backyard of Lal Sahab’s mansion, there is a female statue named as Pratima. The very mention of that statue makes Lal Sahab shiver and starts looking at a picture of his country house, hanging on the wall. In the meanwhile, Rajan has turned desperate for Pratima, the poor girl and starts worshiping Pratima, the statue. He does some restoration work of the statue and makes it as a shrine in the village. The shrine is guarded by a woman who is suffering from dementia.

At last, the mystery of the statue is solved. The demented woman is Pratima’s mother and the real owner of the estate which Lal Sahab has grabbed it by killing her husband in the country house. Pravasi had saved Pratima from the evil Lal Sahab. Her mother had installed the statue of her long lost daughter to remind the people about the misdeeds of Lal Sahab.

I can visualise a happy ending for the film. It is a win-win situation for both the hero and his parents. Hero gets the heroine. His parents should have no objection for the marriage as it turns out that the heroine is from a wealthy family.

The film had 7 songs written by Pandit Narendra Sharma which were set to music by Arun Kumar Mukherjee. Three songs from the film are available on YT. But I am presenting the rare song ‘aata labhon pe naam tera baar baar kyun’ which is the first one to appear on the Blog. I have uploaded the video of the song few hours back on YT.

Some internet sites credit the singer to be Parul Ghosh. However, I felt that the voice is not of Parul Ghosh. The voice was more like that of actor-singer Jyoti. I checked HFGK with Mr Bharat Upadhyay who confirmed that although the name against the song was printed as Parul Ghosh, in the correction list, the song has been accredited to Jyoti who acts in the film. So it turned out to be an actor-singer song.

With this song, ‘Pratima’ (1945) makes its debut in the Blog.


Song-Aata labon pe naam tera baar baar kyun (Pratima)(1945) Singer-Jyoti, Lyrics-Narendra Sharma, MD-Arun Kumar Mukherji

Lyrics

chaand ki raaten taaron ki baaten (?)
hum tum jhoomen gagan mein
hum tum jhoomen gagan mein
lagi tumse lagan mere bhole sajan
dil hai mera magan
dil hai mera magan tere pyaar mein

Many aspirants, dreaming of becoming actor, singer, lyricist, music director etc. have been attracted towards Bollywood right from the time that sound films came into existence in 1931. However, a significantly large numbers of such aspirants do not get a chance to prove their perceived talents. Some of them who get chances in Bollywood are mainly those who have their relatives or friends to recommend them to producers/directors. But there is no guarantee that they would be successful and would establish themselves in the Hindi film industry. Many of them had to either leave the film industry or look for some other vocations in the film industry which were not of their choices.

Take, for example, the case of Jaidev, the music director. In 1933, he ran away from home in Ludhiana and landed in Bombay (Mumbai) to become an actor. He did some small roles in films like ‘Hunterwaali’ (1935), ‘Miss Frontier Mail’ (1936), ‘Desh Deepak’ (1937) etc. But he did not get any important acting roles as an actor during those 4 years. However, due to family problems, Jaidev had to return to his home in Ludhiana. He made his second attempt to try his luck in Bollywood, but this time, as a music director. During the break from Bollywood, he got trained in Hindustani classical music under the tutelage of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. So circumstances made him to give up his dream of becoming an actor in Bollywood and instead chose to be a music director.

The case of Raj Khosla is somewhat unique. The ace director who is remembered for his films like ‘CID’ (1956), ‘Kaala Paani’ (1958), ‘Bambai Ka Babu’ (1960), Wo Kaun Thhi’ (1964), ‘Mera Saaya’ (1966), ‘Do Raaste’ (1969), ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ (1971), ‘Main Tulsi Tere Angan Ki’ (1978), ‘Dostana’ (1980) etc had landed in Bombay from Ludhiana in 1946 to become a playback singer. He was trained in Hindustani classical music and worked with All India Radio in its music department for a short period. He got his first chance in playback singing in ‘Bhool Bhulaiyya’ (1949). His second and probably the last song as a playback singer was rail mein jiya mora sananan hoye re in ‘Aankhen’ (1950) under the baton of Madan Mohan. Interestingly, Raj Khosla worked as an assistant to Madan Mohan for this film.

What was the reason for Raj Khosla to abandon his dream of becoming a playback singer? A chance meeting with Dev Anand changed the course of his filmy career. Dev Anand felt that he had better talent as a director. He put Raj Khosla under Guru Dutt as Assistant Director for ‘Baazi’ (1951) which was produced by Navketan. The film became a grand hit. Raj Khosla also assisted Guru Dutt in ‘Jaal’ (1952).

Raj Khosla’s work as an Assistant Director in these two films in which Dev Anand was in the lead roles must have impressed him. He promoted him to direct ‘Milaap’ (1955), his debut film as a director. N Datta who had assisted S D Burman in ‘Jaal’ (1952) also got his first chance as a full-fledged music director for this film. I have seen the film on YT long back and I enjoyed it both in terms of the treatment of the story as well as the songs. But the film did not fare well at the box office.

The failure of the film at the box office did not deter Dev Anand and Guru Dutt in giving the responsibility of directing latter’s film ‘CID’ (1956). The film was a huge box office success. Raj Khosla had made his presence felt in Bollywood. The rest is history. The assessment of Dev Anand about Raj Khosla’s talent as a director came out to be correct. But in the process, Raj Khosla’s playback singing career was shelved.

In my view, directors who are musically inclined are in a better position to make picturisation of song sequences more interesting for the movie watchers. Raj Kapoor, Guru Dutt, Raj Khosla and Vijay Anand are some such eamples of directors who were musically inclined. I regard them as the top directors whose style of song picturisation is something that I look forward to while watching the videos of songs in their movies.

Sometimes, directors’ knowledge of the film music can cause them to interfere in the work of music directors. Raj Khosla was no exception if I go by a couple of the interviews of music directors. O P Nayyar, who had worked with Raj Khosla in ‘CID’ (1956), was on record saying that when Raj Khosla tried to impose his composition in some songs of ‘Ek Musafir Ek Hasina’ (1962), he threatened to walk out of the film. Shashdhar Mukherjee, the producer of the film had to intervene in the matter. The outcome was that both Raj Khosla and O P Nayyar did not work together in films thereafter. Madan Mohan and Raj Khosla also did not work together after ‘Chiraag’ (1969), though according to Sanjeev Kohli, Madan Mohan’s son, Raj Khosla and Madan Mohan remained good friends till the last.

Raj Khosla had also rendered one version song ‘toote na dil toote na’ from ‘Andaz’ (1949) originally sung by Mukesh for the film. I have heard this song on Radio Ceylon but I could not find it on YT. Although his voice was nowhere near to the voice of Mukesh, but his rendition was flawless.

As I said earlier, Raj Khosla rendered his first playback song for BHOOL BHULAIYYA (1949). The film was produced by Ranjit Movietone and it was directed by Taimur Behram Shaw. The star cast included Agha, Zeb Qureshi, Bhudo Advani, Pesi Patel, Maruti Rao, Anwari etc. From the star cast, the film appears to be a B grade production. Not much is known about the genre or the story of the film.

The film had 10 songs written by B R Sharma (7), Pandit Indra (2) and Rajendra Krishan (1) which were set to music by Bulo C Rani. One song from the film has been covered in the Blog. I am presenting the second song ‘madhur suron mein suno jhamela’ from the film which is the first ever song rendered by Raj Khosla for a film. The song was penned by B R Sharma.

This is a rare song in the sense that it was not available on YT until I made the video of the song from mp3 clip and uploaded the same on YT few months back.

Enjoy this rare fun song from a rare voice.


Song-Madhur suron mein suno jhamela (Bhool Bhulaiyya)(1949) Singer-Raj Khosla, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

madhur suron mein suno jhamela
madhur suron mein suno jhamela
ek thhaa majnu
ek thhi laila aa
madhur suron mein suno jhamela
ek thhaa majnu
ek thhi laila aa

hil mil ke donon ne
aisa pyaar ka naatak khela
pagdi ban gayi daak kaa thhela
pagdi ban gayi daak kaa thhela
thhela aa
ek thhaa majnu
ek thhi laila aa
madhur suron mein suno jhamela
ek thhaa majnu
ek thhi laila aa

pagdi ke baahar ki makhmal
andar thhi khatmal ki mehfil
ik khatmal ne aag laga dee ee
kaat ke aisi break laga dee
ruk gaya pyaar kaa thhelaa
thhelaa
thhelaa
madhur suron mein suno jhamela
ek thhaa majnu
ek thhi lailaa aaaa

beech bhanwar mein chhod ke naiyya
aap to chhup gaye khatmal bhaiyya
sang liya laala ko apne
toot gaye sab pyaar ke sapne
rah gaya majnu akela
akela
akela
madhur suron mein suno jhamela
ek thhaa majnu
ek thhi lailaa….aaa

“Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se”(1978) was inspired from Eric Segal’s immortal novel “Love Story”.

Majority of movie watchers including me, who watched “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se”(1978) did not know about the source of inspiration of the movie. The movie was a bo office hit. People wathing the movie liked it for its story and for its music. My own feeling is that the music of this movie may have played the bigger role in ensuring that the movie was a money spinner for Rajshree Productions, the makers of this movie.

The movie had five songs according to HFGK. Some other sources count the titke song as two or three separate songs and thus arrive at the figure of seven songs, but I will go by HFGK. Out of five songs from the movie, four have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth and final song from “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se”(1978) to appear in the blog.

Like the other songs from the movie, this song too is a heartwarming song to listen to. It is sung by Hemlata and Shailendra Singh and it is picturised on the lead pair of Ranjeeta and Sachin. In this song, they compare notes about what they will do and where they would be after they grew up. A very natural curiosity and this leads to some gentle teasing and leg pulling as well.

It was one of several movies that I had watched while bunking my afternoon practical class. I must say that I too was wondering what I would be dong in future if I watched movies instead of concentrating on my classes. Fortunately I survived (only just about) to tell the tale. 🙂

Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director of this song. To my mind, Ravindra Jain’s lyrics and music was the major reason for the bo office success of this movie.

With this song, “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se”(1978) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Ek din tum bahut bade banoge ek din (Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se)(1978) Singers-Hemlata, Shailendra Singh, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

chaand se chamak uthhoge ek din
will you forget me then
how I can

maan lo kahin ki shahzaadi
baithi ho tumhaare liye aankhen bichhaaye
aur usey ye zid ho ki wo shaadi
kisi se naa karegi
tumhaare sivaaye
will you forget me then
yes I can
if only you can
ek din
le gayaa tumhen jo koi ajnabi
gair ki jo ho gayi ye zindagi
will you forget me then

gentleman
oh no gentleman

saans saans mein tumhaari khushboo
kis tarah jiyungaa bolo tumko bhulaa ke
dil pe jaan pe kar chuki ho jaadoo
jaanti ho poochhati ho phir bhi sataa ke
will you forget me then

gentleman
sorry gentleman
laa laa laa
lalalalalalalala
lalalalaalalalalala

hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
