#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 130 # Aayegi zaroor chithhi mere naam ki #
——————————————-—-

Today’s song is from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Dulhan’. ‘Dulhan-1974’ is one of those movies which had made its debut in the initial months of this blog, on 02.11.2008 with its song ‘jaane chaman jaane bahaar’. But since then, this movie is waiting to see its second song on the blog. Today after ‘twelve years, five months, and three days (or 4537 days), we are going to listen to the second song from this movie.

I remember the today’s song was frequently heard on radio and loud-speakers in those days i.e., my childhood days 😊. And maybe then I was not aware which movie it was from. But I vaguely remember that I never liked this song then and in fact it was irritating for me whenever it was played on radio or around. However, I think that this song must be the most popular song from this movie. And I was thus surprised to note that this has not been posted on the blog until now.

The other song I am familiar from this movie is ‘Govinda aa Gopaalaa aa, mere rote nainaa poochhen’ which was also frequently played then. And in comparison, to the above two songs, the song jaane chaman jaane bahaar from ‘Dulhan-1974’ is a song I am less familiar with.

‘Dulhan-1974’ was directed by C.V. Rajendran for ‘Sujata International, Madras’. It had Ashok Kumar, Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Jamuna, Mehmood (in special appearance), Nazir Hussain, David, Agha, Paintal, Manorama, Mukesh, Vijay Kumar, Prem Kumar, Raghav, Bhagwan, Baby Doll, Leela, Munni, Asha, Shammi and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.10.1974.

This movie had five sound tracks including its ‘title-music’ as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). HFGK also mentions that one song from this movie i.e., ‘main teri dulhan tu dulha piyaa’ is given in two-parts on the LP record of this movie.

Anand Bakshi was the lyricist for this movie who had written all the songs for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie ‘Dulhan-1974’ had the following songs;

I have not watched this movie, so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us listen to the today’s song now.

This song is lip synced on screen by Hema Malini while Jeetendra is also present there.
In the second part the mukhda of this song plays in the background and Ashok Kumar, Hema Malini, Nazir Hussain and many others are also seen in the picturization.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 129 # A tribute to Parveen Babi #
——————————————-—-

Today 4th April 2021 is the sixty-seventh birth anniversary of actress Parveen Babi(04.04.1954 – 20.01.2005). She would have been sixty-six years old today had she been alive. She left this world at the age of fifty-one years old only on 20th January’2005.

She started her career in Hindi Films with the movie ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer-1974’ though her movie ‘Charitra-1973’ was released earlier before ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’. She went on to act in many movies with leading actors of the ‘seventies’ and was held successful actress like other leading heroines of those years.
I am not going into her detailed biography and filmography in this article. I leave it for another article in the future. But I would like to mention here that I do not remember a single movie of Parveen Babi that I watched and had not liked her presence on the screen 😊 The memories of those movies are unforgettable.

In this article today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Aahutee (or Aahuti)-1978’. This a ‘beautiful reminder’ of those years was played on ‘Vividh Bharati’ couple of weeks back. As I listened to it, I find this song familiar but I had forgotten the movie name. Later on, I checked and found the movie name and I remembered to have watched this movie with my brothers and cousins in the summer vacations of that year ‘1978’. I do not remember the movie now, but I remember that it was story of ‘three brothers.’ In those years all such movies having stories woven around ‘three brothers’ and ‘lost and found’ stories would easily attract me and my younger brothers as we were three siblings (all males) to our parents. ‘Aahuti’ was one such movie among many others that used to be produced in those ‘multi-starrer’ days. This movie had couple of songs which brings back memories for me.

‘Aahuti’ was directed by Ashok Bhushan for ‘Basho Productions, Bombay’. It had Rajendra Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Rakesh Roshan, Zaheera, Asha Sachdev, Kamini Kaushal, Ajit, Madan Puri, Paintal, Krishan Dhawan, Raj Mehra, Kuljeet, Dulari, Birbal, Rajan Kapoor, Ranjana Sachdev, Preeti Ganguly, Ranbeer Raj, Pal Sharma, Darshan Arora, Dharmveer, Master Romi, Master Rajesh, Master Ravi and others.

Pradeep Kumar makes a ‘special appearance’ in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.04.1978.

This movie had six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Following is the list of songs this movie had;

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-1) Mahendra Kapoor, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
02 Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-2) Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Manhar, chorus
03 Kaash aisaa hota Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 04.08.2016
04 Saathi mere saathi rut aati jaati Mohd Rafi, Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 22.07.2018
05 Naukri sau ki hazaar ki Kishore Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
06 Jugni ik ladki ka naam Lata Mangeshkar, chorus Being discussed today

Only two songs from the above have been earlier posted on the blog.

As I mentioned above, two songs from this movie which brings back memories for me are ‘Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam’ and ‘Naukri sau ki hazaar ki’, the later one has been shared long back but yet to be posted.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus and on screen it is performed by Parveen Babi and many other female artists. Also seen in the picturization of this song are Shashi Kapoor, Krishan Dhawan and others. Today’s song is beautiful reminder of the ‘Parveen Babi’ days at the box office. And what to say about Lata Mangeshkar’s singing? … just listen and enjoy this song 😊

The situation hen this song takes place can be guessed by any one after watching this song (an archtypical song situation of those years) 😊

let us now listen and enjoy today’s song based on Punjabi folk music composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal …

Our tributes to Parveen Babi!

Blog Day :

Today’s song is a duet from film Uski Tamanna aka Her last desire-39. Have you ever heard about this film ? I have also never known this film. But then, barring a few well known, successful film names, one really does not know any other film names in a specific year. Majority of films are like this only.

The year was 1939 and the British Government had declared war against Germany and japan, as soon as the WW II began. All countries ruled by Britain were – willingly or unwillingly, drawn into the war efforts and its effects. The war began in the month of September and soon various restrictions came into operation – like rationing, blackouts, shortages etc. The film industry which was still under its development stage suffered. It also realised the importance of remaining united as one industry. However, all that came after 1 or 2 years. In 1939 there was not much effect seen on the film industry.

The industry had its own problems. In spite of the playback system in operation, their problem was that because there was no technique of recording from the film negative yet, the singers had to sing twice. Once for the actual film shooting of the song, and later, with the same set of orchestra, for commercial records. Sometimes, the original singer was not available due to any reason, some other singer had to sing for commercial records. Thus we have many such examples, where the singer in the film song and the record is different. However, this problem continued only till mid 50’s when the Tape and the required technique became available. With just one time recording, the film and commercial recording were taken care of.

Khemchand Prakash. K.Datta (Datta Koregaonkar), Rafiq Ghaznavi and Anupam Ghatak made their Debut as Music Directors. Kavi Pradeep wrote his first film song for film Kangan. In 1939, 2 most Unusual songs were presented, for the first time ( and this record is not yet broken even after more than 80 years.). One was a Multi-Lingual song from film Aadmi-39, a film by Prabhat….Kis liye kal ki baat. This song was in Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Gujarati, Bangla, Tamil and Telugu. ( In its Marathi film version-” माणूस “, this song was only in one language-Marathi.) Different Lyricists and MDs were used for each language. The song became very popular.

Second unusual song was from film ‘ Ghareeb ka Laal’-1939. The song lyrics had the names of 32 artistes, operating in Hindi films that time. Top Heroes and Heroines were mentioned in this song. The beginning of the song was ” Tuze Bibbo kahoon ya Sulochana, Uma shashi kahoon ki Jamuna “. This song was sung by the comedian Mirza Musharraf. In later years many songs with film artistes’ names came but none had so many names. Thus this record is still unbroken, in case of both songs.

Besides these songs, let us quickly take a look at some films of 1939….

Aadmi – Prabhat’s hit film, a remake of the Marathi film ” माणूस “. It had some good songs by Shanta Hublikar, Sundarabai Jadhav and Ram Marathe.

Adhuri Kahani – a trend of Tragedy films set by the effect of film ‘Devdas’. All the 3 main characters of this film commit suicide in the end.

Badi Didi – A New Theatres film.

Brandy ki Botal – Master Vinayak’s comedy remake of Marathi film ‘ ब्रॅंडीची बाटली ‘.

Dil hi to hai – Debut of Kidar Sharma as a Director and Ramola as a Heroine in a Hindi film.

Dushman – New Theatres’ film of Saigal, with only his 4 songs.

Ek hi Raasta – Sagar presents first film with 3 Heroes in one film.

Ghazi Salauddin – Debut of Khemchand Prakash as M.D.

Hukum ka Ikka – First film with a Triple role by Umakant Desai ( who later specialised as Lakshman in 7 films, including Ramrajya-43).

Imaandaar – Debut of actress Shamim Akhtar.

India in Africa – This was the First Hindi film to be shot abroad (in Africa). The Hero B. Nandrekar had also gone to Africa for its shooting. Naaz-54 was not the first such film, though HFGK mentions it so.( Ref – pp 69, Maharashtra-The Birthplace of Indian cinema by Isak Mujawar)

Kangan – First of the 4 Hit films of Ashok kumar and Leela Chitnis, made by Bombay Talkies. Kavi Pradeep’s Debut as a Lyricist in this film.

Kapal kundala – New Theatres. Pankaj mullick’s hit song ‘ Piya milan ko jaana ‘.

Leather Face – Debut of Meena kumari as a child artiste.

Navjeevan – Debut of Hansa Wadkar as a Heroine- Bombay Talkies film.

Pukar – Hit film from Minerva Movietone. Naseem Bano sings ” Zindagi ka saaz bhi kya saaz hai….”

Film Uski Tamanna aka Her last desire-1939 was directed by Yakub and the music was by Anupam Ghatak. he was employed by Sagar movietone and gave music to its 6 films.he was one artiste who died quite young.

The music Director Anupam Ghatak – the second-generation Bengali-Hindi composer (after Rai Chand Boral and Pankaj Mullick) was born in 1911 at Mymensingh(now in Bangladesh). He took music lessons from father Atul Ghatak and Keshav Ganesh Dhekan. He became an excellent Flautist. After a short stint in AIR,as a singer in 1930, he joined as assistant to Bishen Chand Boral (brother of Raichand Boral) and later to R C Boral himself for Vidyapati-1937
First independent film score: Payer Dhulo. Later worked at Sagar Film in Bombay, composing Zia Sarhadi’s Bhole Bhale and a series of films for Badami, Luhar et al. (1939). Returned to Calcutta, notably for Barua’s Shapmukti; thereafter had assignments in both Calcutta and Lahore. Known for his wide range, from the sentimental Ekti paisa dao go babu in Shapmukti to the experimental Gane more kon indradhanu in Agni Pareeksha.

His Hindi film career started with ‘Tarzan ki Beti-38 and Bhole Bhale-39. He gave music to only 17 Hindi films, which included Ladies Only, Service Ltd.,Sadhana, Uski tamanna, Civil marriage, Sri Ramanuj etc. In Lahore he did Champa, Badnami and Shalimar, before Partition. His last Hindi film was Shamsheer, which was released only in 1953,after he died in 1947 itself.

The cast of the film was Yakub, Maya Banerjee, Jyoti, Bhudo Advani, Putlibai etc etc. The name Putlibai may be unknown to many. There was a famous dacoit in Chambal Ghati, by this name in the decade of the 50’s, but actress Putlibai has no connection with that. Mothers and daughters acted as leading ladies in the same era….Miss Putli or Putlibai and Miss Gohar Mamajiwala (the term Miss was used not merely to state the marital status of the leading ladies of those days)….

Like Miss Sharifa and Husna Banu , Putli and Gohar were mother and daughter. Putli was an accomplished actress of the silent screen who championed in the Talkies because of her extraordinary singing talents. Gohar was born in 1910 and entered the screen in 1926, where her mother Miss Putli too entered more or less the same time. Information about Miss Putli is very limited however, Gohar became India’s popular iconic star and is still remembered today.

Miss Putli acted in 33 Talkie films. Her first Talkie was Ratan Manjiri-35 and her last film was Dhoke baaz-46. She sang one song each in the film Lehri Badmash-44 and Dhokebaaz-46.

Today’s song is a duet sung by Harish and Maya Banerjee. With this song, film Uski Tamanna makes its Debut on our Blog. Including this film, my last 5 posts were from films which made Debut on the Blog. Today’s rare song was given to me by shri Abhay Jain ji (USA) and was uploaded kindly by our Sadanand Kamath ji. Thanks to both.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No.21
———————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago was 2 April 2011. That day, a saturday, saw as many as six songs (from six different movies) getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Six songs from six different movies in a day ! So that was a normal day for the blog. Right ! Not really. This day ten years ago was a special day not only for me but for many millions others. It was a day when India vs Sri Lanka world cup cricket final was being played at Mumbai. Exactly ten years have passed. But the memories of that day and also memories of the days pereceding the final are still fresh in my mind.

The final post of the blog was posted at 12:31 PM and then I began to follow the final on TV, which was a day night match.

That tournament was emotionally quite a draining experience for me, and for millions of other cricket lovers as well.

The emotional toll on the Indian cricket lovers began not in 2011 but from the previous world cup of 2007. In that world cup, an overconfident and complacent Indian team lost to Bangladesh in their inaugural match. That loss saw them bow out of the world cup at the group stage itself. A most humiliating and inglorious world cup exit it was.

Heads rightly rolled after that.

A few months later, another world cup of a new kind called T20 world cup was organised. BCCI, smarting from the ODI world cup fiasco, did not want to participate, but ICC arm twisted them into participating in it. BCCI responded by sending a team shorn of stars. It was led by a freshly anointed captain in Dhoni. All big names (Tendulkar. Dravid, Ganguly, Kumble, Zaheer Khan) were missing from the team. Names like Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Joginder Sharma, R P Singh were included. This reluctantly sent team, against all odds, went on to lift the T20 world cup title ! And the erstwhile reluctant BCCI suddenly turned T20 enthusiast. They soon devised a T20 tournament called T20 and showed ECB how to market T20 and rake in unimaginable amount of money while at it.

Enthused by the success of India in 2007 T20 world cup, BCCI bid to host ODI world cup in India and neighbouring countries and succeeded in the bid. It was similar to BCCI bid in 1987, after their team’s unexpected win in the 1983 world cup.

2007 ODI World cup saw India (and also Pakistan) getting eliminated in the grouop stages itself. Indian elimination after just three matches meant that many Indian fans (who constitute the biggest cricket following group in the world) lost interest in the world cup after Indian elimination. Espn star sports, that had won the TV rights to telecast this world cup may have lost heavily due to this. So the format of 2011 was changed. Now there were two groups of 7 teams each. Top four finishers of each group qualified for the quarterfinals. This format (similar of the format of 1996 world cup) ensured that good teams would not get eliminated because of one bad day in the tournament. Each team would play six matches in group stage. A team could qualify even if they finished fourth in the group after losing two matches. So, teams like India and Pakistan would not get eliminated after one bad match. Similarly teams like Bangladesh and Ireland (that had one good day against India and Pakistan respectively), will not qualify after just one fluke win.

And that is exactly how it happened. India qualified by finishing second in the group whereas Pakistan qualified after topping their group. Bangladesh this time were soundly thrashed not only by India, but also by South Africa and West Indies. They did score one lucky win against England, but that solitary win failed to ensure their qualification.

Qualifying for the knockout was easy this time for India, but if they wanted to advance deep into the knockout stage then they needed to finish at the top. While India won against every other team, and they were very well placed against South Africa at 267/1, Indian batting collapsed inexplicably and they were bowled out for 296, losing 9 wickets for 29 runs and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. This result made them finish second in the group. Reward- they were pitted against defending champions Australia in the quarterfinals, who were world champions for three world cups in a row. Fortunately, Indians showed nerves to steel and went on to defeat Australia in the semi final. Their “reward”- a semi final meeting against Pakistan- a team that had no weak link in bowling. In this semi final, Indian batting struggled throughout. Tendulkar top scored with 85 after half a dozen reprieves through dropped catches, DRS review overturned an onfield out decision etc. Thanks to some valuable runs by Raina towards the end, India reached 260, their lowest total in the tournament. In the prevous match, India had chased 260 against Australia, and thewre was no reason why Pakistan could not do the same. Thankfully, Pakistan kept losing wixckets at crucial moments, just when it looked that they had things in control, and India sneaked through by 29 runs.

Final was against Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka were a side that had players eminently suited for this world cup conditions. They had some batsmen who could remorselessly pile on the runs and they had spinners who controlled the middle overs and choked runs. Sri Lanka had lost only one match, and that was against Pakistan, their nemesis team in world cups. Otherwise they were unbeaten. Their match against Australia was washed out. They defeated other opponents with ease. In the quarter final, they restricted England score and chased that with ease. They did the same against New Zealand in the semi final.

In the final, Sri Lanka won the toss and batted first. They piled on a big total of 274/6. Mahela Jaywardane, as was his wont, scored an unbeaten century.

When India began their chase, Sehwag was out for a second ball duck. India 0 for 1. Six overs later, Tendulkar too fell. India 31 for 2 and in deep trouble. Memories of world cup final 2003 chase began to haunt Indian fans, when India were 59 for three and were never in the game after that. With my experience, I had learnt the lesson that Tendulkar and Sehwag would perform in group matches, but not in the final. So both of them letting the side down in the big final was par for the course.

Fortunately, this team had Gautam Gambhir, who would perform in the final. He had performed in the World T20 Final in 2007 which India had won. Here too, he, in the company of rising star Virat Kohli began to repair the damage. The two took the score to 114, when Kohli fell. Target was 161 runs away, and India had to score at an asking rate of 5.7 for more than 28 overs. The Sri Lankan attack had not allowed any team other than Pakistan to score so many runs in this tournament. The next batsman scheduled to come in was Yuvraj. He had a great world cup with bat and ball, but he had fallen for a first ball duck in the semi final. And here, against Muralitharan, he would have been like a cat on the hot tin roof. As Kohli departed, fans were greeted by the sight of not Yuvraj, but Dhoni emerging out of the pavilion.

Gambhir and Dhoni saw off the threats of Muralitharan and co. The Sri Lankan modus operandi in this world cup was to harvest loads of wickets in the middle overs and cripple the opposition batting line up, which would then collapse to a total smaller than 230. Only Pakistan (batting first) had scored 277 against them. Sri Lanka had restricted England to 229 in the quarterfinal, New Zealand to 217 (in semi final) and 153 (in group match). Zimbabwe scored 188, Kenya 142, and Canada 122 against sri Lanka. So with the exception of Pakistan (batting first) no other team had succeeded in handling Sri Lankan bowling attack in the tournament.

Gambhir and Dhoni dented the Sri Lankan bowling attack. India were 223 when Gambhir had a momentary brain fade and he was out bowled for 97, when he was so close to a well deserved century. Only 41 runs were needed in 8.4 overs. Only seven more overs were needed to reach the winning total. Dhoni sealed the match with a well chronicled six.

That win now meant that India had won the ODI world cup in this century itself and we were no longer confined to reminisce and gloat about the title win in the past century. So someone like Ashish Nehra too joined the ranks of 1983 “pundit” like Madanlal as someone who is much in demand as TV cricket expert thanks to that world cup title victory in 1983. 🙂

Present generation cricket lovers can now honestly say that they were around when India won the ODI world cup. 🙂 People like us are of course luckier. We saw Indian world cup win in 1983 too. 🙂

On that day ten years ago, one song of “Pujaari”(1946) was covered in the blog. “Pujaari”(1946) was directed by Aspi for Ardeshir M Irani Productions, Bombay. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti, Masood, Bipin Gupta,Mustafa,P.D.Lal, Yashwant Dave, Anita Sharma, Tasneem, Baby Mumtaz Aka Madhubala etc in it. This movie had ten songs in it and four songs have been covered so far.

Today, exactly ten years later, here is another song from “Pujaari”(1946) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Feroz Dastoor. ali Sahab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This post appears late at night. At this time ten years ago, entire India had burst into wild celebrations just as Dhoni hit the winning six and then the team as performing a victory lap around the Wankhede stadium.

Forgotten Songs of Bappi Lahiri – Song # 2
————————————————————

For my second song of this series, I wanted to choose a song sung by Bappi Da himself. I was searching the movie and song databases, when I came across this haunting melody.

The years 1976 and 1977, amongst some others, are very special in my life. I had finished my school (SSC) and had entered the collage (Intermediate/11th & 12th) life. You can imagine a teen, who has just finished his, very strict, catholic convent school, entering the next phase in his life (collegian life, where there were no compulsions on wearing the uniforms, carrying a school bag and tiffin (lunch) or dabba, as it was called in my mother tongue (Marathi).

There were lots of other things which were not compulsory as well. I’ll leave it to your own imagination or experience. But the two most important things which I liked were, one – No Monitoring to check if the students attended the collage every day and two – there were 3 theatres/Cinema Halls next to my collage (a total of 9 theatres/cinemas with a radius of 2 – 3 kms.

Another unique thing was that my collage was a co-educational institution, whereas my school was a Boys Only convent. I was quite excited about this fact but came to understand soon enough that I was extremely shy when talking to any girl. Thus, movies were my only source of entertainment.

There were some very good movies released in those years which were block-busters like Kabhi Kabhie, Naagin, Adalat, Mehbooba, Kallicharan, Dharam Veer, AAA, etc. During those years, one young romantic pair was quite popular and that was Sachin & Sarikaa. This pair beczme a big hit in those days due to the stupendous success of Geet Gaata Chal (1975). Some of the other movies where they were paired in leading roles were Shyam Tere Kitne Naam, Raksha Bandhan, Zid, Madhu Malti, etc.

One more movie where they acted in romantic lead roles was Pratima Aur Payal released in 1977. My today’s song is a very haunting melody composed and sung by Bappi Lahiri for this movie. I have seen this movie but the memory is very vague about the story line. I only remember that it is told in a flash back about sculptor and a dancer. The story is told to Seema and Vikas – two lovers who bear striking resemblance to Manu, the sculptor and Kala, the dancer, who die a century earlier, in each other’s’ arms.

The movie directed by Sharan Aggarwal for producer B. K. Agarwal, under the banner Shivam Pictures, Bombay. The songs were penned by Rajkavi Inderjit Singh Tulsi, Shiv Kumar Saroj, Indeevar and Gauhar Kanpuri. The composer was Bappi Lahiri. The movie starred Sachin, Sarika, Om Shivpuri, Rita Bhaduri, etc.

I have been unable to locate the video of either the movie or the song being uploaded. Only audio in uploaded.

Today’s song “Soona Hai Jeevan Mera” is composed and sung by Bappi Lahiri and penned by Shiv Kumar Saroj.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 20
———————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago (viz on 1 april 2011), five songs from five different movies were covered in the blog. Here are thge details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
3717 Pareshaan hoon ki kyun apni pareshaani nahin jaati Parbat Pe Apna Deraa(1944) 5 songs covered out of 9

3720 Naach re man badkamma Rajkumar(1964) Movie YIPPEED by now
3721 Gori ke haath mein jaise ye chhallaa Mela(1971) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that three movies out of five have since been YIPPEED in the blog.

“Parbat Pe Apna Dera”(1944) is one of the two movies not yet YIPPEED. This movie was directed by V.Shantaram for Rajkamal Kala Mandir Limited, Bombay. The movie had Vanmala, Ulhas,Shantarin, Madan Mohan, Kantakumari, P L Samant, Baby Nalini, Vijaya, Suman, Kamal etc in it.

Five songs from the movie (out of 9) have been covered so far.

Music is composed by Vasant Desai. The song is picturised as a romantic song on Madan Mohan (later he would make his mark as a music director) and Shantarin. Ulhas is also seen in the picturisation serving as a peeping Tom.

Blog Day :

———————————————–————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 19
———————————————————————————–
This date ten years ago (viz 31 March 2011) was a thursday and a working day. On looking back at the posts in the blog, I notice that four songs from four different movies were covered on that day. It was slow going by the standards of the blog those days. The first post of the day appeared at 10:58 AM and the fourth and final post at 1:12 PM. So it appears that this day ten years ago was a day when I could not devote much time for blogging. My guess is that I was journeying on this day in the morning and I arrived at Nagpur (my base) in the morning at around 10 AM and that is when I started blogging for the day.

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
3713 Jo dard banke zamaane pe chhaaye jaate hain Parbat Pe Apna Deraa(1944) Posted at 10:58 AM. 5 songs (out of 9) covered by now
3714 Tirulila Tirulila Tirulila la Daman(1951) Posted at 11:28 AM. 8 songs out of 10 covered by now.
3715 Nashe mein jo daulat ke ham dagmagaaye Sitaaraa(1955) Posted at 11:56 AM. 8 songs out of 10 covered by now
3716 Sune na koi man ki vyathhaa Subhadra Haran(1964) Debut song of the movie. Posted at 1:12 PM. Debut of the movie. One song out of 6 covered so far.

One can see that all four movies whose songs were covered on that day are unYIPPEED to this date and so they all are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

Out of the four movies, “Subhadra Haran”(1964) is one movie which made its debut on that day ten years ago and that song remains the only song from the movie to be covered in the blog till noqw !

“Subhadra Haran”(1964) was produced by Homi Wadia and directed by Datta Dharmadhikari for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Jayshree Gadkar, Suryakant, Arun Sarnaayik, Shahu Modak, Chitra, Raja Nene, Aruna,Balakram,

As mentioned above, the movie had six songs in it. One song has been covered so far.

Here is the second song from “Subhadra Haran”(1964) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is the lyricist. Music is composed by Prabhakar Jog.

The song is picturised on Jaayshree Gadkar and Suryakant, playing Subhadra and Arjun respectively in this movie based on a sub plot of Mahabharat.

Details of the movie as well as the lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 127 # Aatish-1979#
——————————————-—————————

I had mentioned in one of my earlier post on the blog, that nowadays (since Nov’2020 end) I got to listen to the radio utilizing my morning and evening time of about an hour or so while commuting towards my workplace (in the morning) and while returning back (in the evening). And normally I tune in to ‘Vivid Bharati’ only.

This exercise has given me an opportunity to listen to many songs from yesteryears and also songs from new movies. The joy and excitement of ‘the next song to be played’ is always there as on radio we cannot play songs of our choice.

Today’s song is one such song. hen I was listening to it, it sounded familiar but then I had not attentively listened to the name of the movie while the broadcast was on. The refrain ‘salaam salaam salaam’ in this song sounded familiarbut I could not put a finger to it. So, I looked for the details of this song.

This song turned out to be from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Aatish’.

That reminded me that I had watched this movie in the ‘summer vacations’ at Akola with my brothers and cousins. But I do not remember anything about the story of this movie and other details. Only thing that is still fresh in my mind is that this was a ‘Jeetendra Movie’. 😊

I looked for the video of this song and found that this song is performed by Neetu Singh (and I must say she is looking very beautiful in this song). Jeetendra, the object of her craving, is also present in the picturization of this song.

“Aatish-1979” was directed by Ambarish Sangal for ‘M.K. Enterprises, Bombay’. It had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Rinku, Dheeraj, Leena Das, Om Shivpuri, Mukri, Mumtaz Begam, Master Raju, Nirupa Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar (in special appearance), Brahm Bharadwaj, Subhash Kanwal, Kamal Deep, Ranveer Raj, Chandru, Kishan, Ashok Saksena, Raj Kumar, Ram Narayan and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.02.1979.

There were six songs in this movie written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ladke ke bhes mein ladki hoon Asha Bhonsle, Chorus
02 Main nehlaa thhi bas nehlaa Asha Bhonsle Being discussed today
03 O meri laadli pyaari behnaa Mohd Rafi, Hemlata 13.08.2011
04 Sharaab hai, haan, sharaab hai Mohd Rafi, Chorus
05 Babu manejara ve he babu, manejara ve Lata, Rafi, Chorus
06 Kahin naam na apnaa likh dena … Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata, Bhushan Mehta, Mohd Rafi, chorus

Only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 13.08.2011. So, one can notice that this movie is about to complete its ‘ten-year’ run on the blog within next five months. 😊

let us now listen to today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and lip-synced on screen by Neetu Singh. As mentioned above lyrics are by Ravindra Jain who has also the music director for this movie.

Today’s song is from the film Durga-1939, a film made by the prestigious Bombay Talkies. The film was directed by the studio’s German Director – Franz Osten. Some readers may wonder, how a German could direct a Hindi film, without knowing or understanding the language ? For such readers, let me tell you that Franz Osten directed not just 1 or 2 but a total of 16 films for Bombay Talkies, from its beginning. Till the end, he never learnt Hindi language ! He was not the lone German , but there was a whole team of Germans who worked in Bombay Talkies !

Not only in Bombay talkies, but Germans contributed to Indian Cinema elsewhere too and in different segments of filmmaking. Let us take a quick look at Germans in Indian Cinema, in general. Germany had a very good name in India during the olden days i.e. during the early part of the last century. I remember my Grandfather ( who expired in 1975 at the age of 91 years) always praising Germany for so many things. In India,all things German, were considered to be the Best- even better than the Vilayati or the British things !

Very few people know that Indian Cinema had a little known connection with the rise of Hitler in Germany in 1932-33. A group of men , engaged in Cinema in Germany, flocked to India in the 30’s and played a vital role in Indian Cinema and the arts of that time. After Hitler took over Germany in 1933, the German Cine Studios’ glory days were over and they were turned into Nazi Propaganda Machines !

It was at this time that several of its men left the studio and arrived in India, and contributed during the Indian cinema’s formative years.

The foremost among them is Frantz Osten, a German whom Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani met at the UFA when they went to train there (they worked with Lang and Marlene Dietrich). Osten had already been directing films for the couple since 1925, when he made Light of Asia for them from Germany.

In 1934, he came to India and the next year, after Rai founded ‘ Bombay Talkies ‘ the legendary film studio in Malad, that now lies in ruins, Osten directed its first film.

He went on to direct the famous Devika Rani-Ashok Kumar starrer, Achhut Kanya, without much knowledge of Hindi. The film, which featured the song “Main ban ki chiriya”, was shot by Joseph Wirsching; the sets were designed by Karl von Spreti and the laboratory was headed by Zolle, Osten’s team of UFA ex-members who worked for Rai’s state-of-the-art studio.

Osten and his fellow Germans directed 16 films for Rai. It was a remarkable feat for people who knew little Hindi ‘ mistaking the word “bulbul” once for a pair of bulls. While in Bombay, he became a member of the Nazi Party (1936). He was interned by the British at the outbreak of WW2 in 1939, while shooting his last film there, Kangan. Released and allowed to return to Germany (1940).

“It’s not clear if they had anything to do with the Nazi ideology, either way,” said film historian Amrit Gangar.

“If they did, it did not show in their films. But there were two other people who almost certainly migrated to India because of the persecution of Jews.”

They were Walter Kauffman, a scholar and composer interested in Oriental music, and Wilhelm Haas, a writer and a friend of Franz Kafka.

“Both were Jews, and Haas came to India because of Kauffman, who went on to found the Bombay Chamber Music Society,” Gangar added.

Kauffman arrived in 1934 after meeting director-producer Mohan Bhavnani at the UFA (where V. Shantaram also did a stint).

“Haas was in Czechoslovakia, but left the country for India just after Hitler’s invasion,” Gangar said.

Kauffman, Haas and Bhavnani worked together in Premnagar (1940), Naushad’s first film as music director. Kauffman composed the background score; Haas wrote the screenplay.

“It is debatable, but Kauffman is probably also the person behind the All India Radio signature tune. Haas was a member of the Indian chapter of PEN,” Gangar said. Haas also wrote the script for Bhavnani’s Jhooti Sharam (1939).

The story of Paul Zils ( 1-6-1915 to 30-3-1979 ) stands out, though. Zils, believed to be a Nazi sympathizer, turned up in India under strange circumstances: he was bound for Indonesia in a steamer that got torpedoed by an Indian naval ship during World War II and he was taken prisoner.

After his release, because of his film experiences, the leadership of the sales department in Ezra Mir led government documentary production company, called him to join Information films of India. End of October 1945, he came to Bombay and started his work. In March 1959 he returned to Germany.

As the studio system came to an end and individual producers took over, the days of the Germans in Indian cinema were over. Many, including Osten, went back to Germany. Set designer Spreti was appointed German ambassador to Guatemala and was later shot dead by terrorists. Josef Virsching-the Cinematographer, however, stayed back in India till his death in 1967. He did few more Hindi films too.

Most of the others remained associated with the film world abroad.

Paul Zils directed 3 Dev Anand films, according to the documents. Hindustan Hamara-50 and Zalzala-52 are found in HFGK, but the third film called ‘ Shabash”, though listed in 1949, gives no details, except the film name. ( Information adapted from the book ” Walter Kauffman” by Amit Gangar, with thanks and my notes.)

It’s not just the Germans alone, but there was an American who contributed to Tamil Cinema as a Director, during the same period i.e. 1935 to 1950. He directed not just 14 Tamil films….without understanding the language….but also a Hindi film, ‘ Meera’ in 1947…..without knowing Hindi language ! On top of it this Hindi film featured the legendary Carnatic Classical singer M.S.Subbulakshmi. This American’s name was Ellis R. Dungan (11-5-1909 to 1-12-2001).

When Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani decided to establish a modern, well equipped cinema studio in Bombay, they started getting the right persons for different departments of filmmaking. While in London, he had met Niranjan Pal (son of the great patriot Bipin Chandra Pal)-a writer of stage dramas and films. They became friends. Soon after Himanshu Rai, Niranjan also returned to India. Rai called Niranjan to Bombay to work as a writer on a very attractive salary. He arrived and he wrote stories, screen plays and dialogues for the first 8 films of Bombay Talkies. He was assisted by J S Casshyap, Najam Naqvi, and S J Hasan. Their films used simple, day to day Hindi language. Prabhat Hindi films had a profound Marathi tilt, and New Theatre Hindi films were all round and round words- too much bookish Hindi. Naturally, Bombay Talkies Hindi was acceptable in the Hindi belt easily.

After Devika Rani’s elopement episode, Himanshu Rai’s male ego and Bangla Bhadralok prestige was shattered and he had lost his peace of mind. Later he also suffered from tantrums. Once Niranjan Pal wrote an article in an outside magazine, which Rai did not like and he quarrelled with Niranjan on this. They stopped talking. Then one day, when Niranjan was about to go home in his car, Rai came running and holding the car door, started arguing with Niranjan. Finally Niranjan left-never to come back to Bombay talkies again !

Niranjan Pal was one of the very important members of the team. He had written stories of the early films. One of his hits was Achhut kanya also. He proved to be a master in recreating Village atmosphere. After he left, Himanshu Rai immediately called Saradindu Bandopadhyaya from Calcutta. He was the one who had created the famous film and TV character Byomkesh Bakshi. He joined Bombay Talkies and wrote stories of 7 films.

Film Durga’s story was also by him. This is what “Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema ” says about the film Durga…..” Rural melodrama about Durga (Devika Rani), an adolescent child of nature, living with her aged mother Heera. Unable to get the medicine required to prevent her mother’s death, one misfortune after another befalls the heroine in spite of the sympathies of the newly arrived village doctor, Jawahar (Shukul). In the absence of Niranjan Pal, the studio’s main scenarist and author of its best-known rural dramas (Achhut Kanya, Janmabhoomi, both 1936), the tale reduces itself to a purely familial narrative. It is nevertheless a key production in Devika Rani’s self-projection of urbane charm clothed in primal innocence. Osten followed it with Leela Chitnis’s first big film, Kangan (1939). Wadkar was promoted to lead actress again opposite Shukul in her next big film, Navjeevan (1939).”

Today’s song is sung by Devika Rani and Rama Shukul. With this song, film Durga-39 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Shankar arpan maala
koyi haath ise na lagaana

jhhagdaa chhodo milkar baithhen

Shankar se li thhi maange var ki bheekh
Shankar se li thhi maange var ki bheekh

hey yogiraaj mahaan

sun yogi chatur sujaan mujhe teri de do shaan
