Never a day passes when your memories don’t pay a visit. . . bringing with them wonderful songs, heard and unheard. . . a treasure that keeps on playing in the alleys of the mind. . .

Today’s episode features a wonderful breezy duet from the 1959 film ‘Naach Ghar’. This film is a social drama produced and directed by TS Tara, for the banner of Quality Pictures, Bombay. As the name suggests, the film has a theme that is built around a stage dance group, i.e. a nautanki group. It involves characters for whom dance and music is the drive in life; it also has others who would like to usurp and manipulate these passions for their own advantage; and then there are good hearted people who want to bring happiness to all. The cast of actors is very impressive – Ashok Kumar, Shobha Khote, Gopikrishan, Helen, Kamla Lakshman, Anoop Kumar, Dhumal, Iftikhar, Maya Das, Mirza Musharraf, Jamaal, Sujata, Bismillah, and Vivek.

As I check for details online, I come across a poster that shows Helen dancing in accompaniment with Gopi Krishan. Now this should be a veritable treat to watch – Helen dancing with an acknowledged master of classical dance. One of the websites https://bombaymann2.blogspot.com/ has reproduced a brief introduction of the film from the information booklet of the film, as below,

The whole worlds a stage – a Naachgar. Its impossible to tell its whole story in a small space like this. But we are glad here to introduce a few interesting characters whose strange doings give this story its fasicnation. . Radha: A simple village maiden who is in love with Mohan and eventually effaces herself in order that Mohan should be happy. . Mohan: A simple village youth, struck first by paralysis and then by a Raja’s bullet. He is dazzled by city life and, forsaking Radha, develops a strong infatuation for Renu, a city dancer. . Mohini: A young girl, orphaned by a storm. She finds her way into a Nautanki troupe and daydreams of happiness with Gopi, its organiser. But fate having decreed otherwise, she is ultimately forced into a Naachghar – away from her sweetheart. . Gopi: A Nautanki dancer, whose art show brilliantly in partnership with Mohini. They get lost to each other in the maze of city life – and take any knocks from fate in the process. . Shekhar: An opportunist, money-crazy couttier of the Raja of a state, who was the main barrier between Radha and Mohan and Gopi and Mohini. The only man he feared was Bihari. . Bihari: Orginally a guide in shikar-forest, he became the principal aide to the Raja Saheb and his chief confidant. . Raja Saheb: A large-hearted chief of a large state, who wanted to see everyone happy and prosperous. [Source: Booklet]

 

Geet Kosh lists 10 songs for this musical – all songs are created by the team of Sahir Ludhianvi and N Datta. The count of songs is like – one Rafi Sb solo, three Lata solos, four Rafi-Lata duets, and then one duet of Rafi Sb each with Asha and Geeta. Way back in September 2012, two songs of this film were posted in quick succession. Three more songs have followed in the interim. Today we get to the sixth song of this film. All songs are quite a treasure, and I hope the remaining songs will find their place on this blog shortly.

This song is one of the Rafi-Lata duets – kind of a teasing song, where in the lady requests not to be teased in public, and the gentleman wraps it up by stating that one should be open with one’s feelings – “दुनिया का डर क्या”.

A remarkable configuration of singing lines; the first two antaraas are all by Lata, with Rafi Sb making an appearance in the third. As the song progressed, I was almost thinking whether some error had been made and this was another solo. But then Rafi Sb’s voice appeared in the third antaraa. . . 🙂

Enjoy this quick paced and breeze tête-à-tête between lovers.

The movie had eight songs in it that were penned by three lyricists and composed by two music directors.

One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Pyaase Nain”(1954) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Meena Kapoor. Wahiq Qureshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S K Pal.

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


Song-Pyaase nainon ki pyaas bujha de (Pyaase Nain)(1954) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Wahid Qureshi, MD-S K Pal

Lyrics

pyaase nainon ki pyaas bujha de
bichhad gaye hain jo
bichhad gaye jo
unko mila de
unko mila de

apna sahaara koi nahin hai
jag mein hamaara koi nahin hai
jiska kinaara koi nahin hai ae
koi nahin hai
us dariya se paar lagaa de
unko mila de

honthon par hai thhandi aahen
dekh dekh kar thhaki nigaahen
kho gayi sab jeewan ki raahen
aasha ka koi deep jala de
unko mila de
pyaase nainon ki pyaas bujha de
bichhad gaye jo
bichhad gaye jo
unko mila de
unko mila de

din raat yoon jo dukh main paaun
darr hai ke tujhko bhool na jaaun
dukh paa kar bhi main muskaaun
main muskaaun
aisi koi raah bata de
unko mila de
pyaase nainon ki pyaas bujha le
bichhad gaye hain jo
bichhad gaye jo
unko mila de
unko mila de

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 69 # Singer – Kishore Kumar #
(Voice of Kishore Kumar in Seventies)
———————————————–——————–

‘5 Rifles’ (1974) – (‘पांच रायफल’) as the movie’s Censor Certificate mentions it or (‘५ रायफलें’) as the movies titles mention it – was produced, directed and written by IS Johar. It was a Shanker BC presentation for Delux Productions (India). The movie has a ‘U’ certificate, still its online version requires a confirmation of age 🙂 I don’t know why? anyway I had to watch only the title credits for information 😉 . The film was passed by censors on 09.08.1974.

It had Ambika Johar, Rakesh Khanna, Shahi Kapoor, Anil Johar, Kamal Kapoor, Veena, Sapru, Satyadip, Murad, Keti Irani, Keshto Mukherjee, IS Johar, Ravi, Ram Avtar, Chanda, Qamar Sarhadi, Nazeer Kashmiri, Kedar Sehgal, Bairam, Bali Jajani, Omi, and Master Anu. Editing for this movie was done by M.S. Shinde. DR Thakkar and Faruk Kaiser were the associate directors of this movie. Darius Gotla was the Executive Producer of this movie, whereas Seeroo Daryanani (I think it is one person only) was the associate producer.

This movie had total six songs, including the famous qawwaali – “Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom Sharaabi” which is already posted on our blog. The qawwaliis written by Nazaan Sholapuri while Aziz Nazaan was the composer and the singer. For the remaining five songs, four are written by Rajendra Krishna and one by Indeevar. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. The movie titles under singers mention the name of Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar only.

HFGK Vol V liststhe following songs in the for this movie,

  • Wo kya cheez hai maharaj… duniya ke banaane waale ne (Kishore Kumar)
  • Pyaar ke patang ki dor jiske haath hai (Kishore Kumar, chorus)
  • Jab se sarkaar ne nashaabandi tod di (Kishore Kumar, chorus)
  • Teraa husn Allaah Allaah teraa roop Raam Raam (Kishore Kumar)
  • Malmal mein badan mora chamke (Asha Bhonsle)

and for the famous qawwaali included in this movie it mentions a note;

In this movie one popular qawwali ‘Jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi (Singer-Composer: Aziz Nazan/Lyricist – Nazan Sholapuri) was picturized on Ambika Johar in this movie.

I wonder how Ambika Johar would have felt lip syncing this qawaali in thick and heavy set male voice. 😉 In his write-up presenting the above qawwaali song Atul ji has already mentioned the following-

In reality, this qawwaali was not created for this movie. This qawwaali was created by Aziz Nazaan for his mushairas. He was the singer as well as the music director of this qawwaali. 

However, after going through details of this movie mentioned in HFGK Vol-V, I was curious to know where the credit for this qawwaali have been mentioned in the titles of this movie. It appears in the ‘Assistants’ section – for ‘music assistants’ – mentioning Babla as ‘assistant’ and Parte as ‘arranger’, Conducted by Frank Fernand, followed by mentioning that ‘Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom’ by ‘Courtesy the Gramophone Co. India Ltd and Aziz Nazan, lyrics Nazan Sholapuri’, and as we all know that ironically the film today is identified with this famous qawwaali only and its other songs didn’t even get noticed or are remembered today if I am not wrong.

I could not find information about the plot / story of the film. A comment on the internet from a reader suggests that the movie was about a fictitious story set in the backdrop of the battle for freedom. The story is about a kingdom in an unspecified time era, which conquered by a foreign power, and the efforts of the royal family and a handful of activists to wrest back their freedom.

I had vague memories of watching this film in my childhood with my parents. However, I only remember the ‘monkeys with the rifles’ and over the years after that, reading about this film, I got to know that there were the ‘look-alikes’ of ‘Rajesh Khanna’ and ‘Shashi Kapoor’ in this film. But the one memory that has been permanently associated with this film’s name is the famous ‘qawwaali’. It was very popular in those years and continues to be so for many years. It was frequently heard over loud speakers then.

Almost six years back I came across this song sung by Kishore Kumar and on checking I find that this was from this movie ‘Five Rifles’. Listening to this song give a me a feeling of hearing it many years back on radio or elsewhere. I had shared this song with Atul ji then, but somehow it remained to be posted for this day today 🙂

So, fortunately I get to share this song from this movie sung by Kishore Kumar which is a ‘patriotic song’ in disguise of a romantic song. On screen it is lip synced by Rakesh Khanna who is also trying to enact the mannerisms of the Superstar Rajesh Khanna. The situation of the song; (after watching this part of the movie having this song)

Rakesh Khanna a ‘deshbhakt’ is in jail where the officer Khotu’s wife ‘Madam Khotu’ (?) (don’t know who the actress is) is having a crush on him, goes to meet him and get him released from the jail. Since, her husband is eyeing over Rakesh’s fiancée Rajkumari – of Rakesh Khanna. So, she is doing a ‘tit for tat’ to her husband. She takes our hero to her ‘mahal’ and orders him to sing a song praising her beauty.

‘Mr. Rakesh, hamaare husn ki taarif karo’ … warna ‘khatm kar diye jaaoge’

As our hero is still not ready to surrender her, she gives him a final call

Tumko apni jaan bhi pyaari nahin’

‘Mujhe apne desh se jyaada kuchh bhi pyaara nahin’

 ‘Jhooth mat bolo’ …

Madam Khotu finally gets the hero’s ‘mangetar’ there,

‘Agar iski zindagi chaahte ho to …’

On the other side, the ‘mangetar’ also threatens the hero of losing his love if he sings a song. As our hero is in a dilemma, his eyes fall upon the map of India on the wall behind Madam Khotu’s ‘sinhaasan’. This gives him an idea, and he improvises, singing a ‘patriotic song’ for the country, disguised as a song praising Madam Khotu’s ‘beauty’.

Here is this beautiful song sung by Kishore Kumar and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Lyrics are by Rajendra Krishna. And I think I can mention this here that after the qawwaali of this film was posted on the blog on 30th Jun 2009, this song is coming on to the blog today after a gap of almost NINE years.

Wishing herewith all ‘Eid Mubarak’ today let us now enjoy this song …

[Author’s Note: – I had noted one additional stanza at the time of sending this song in 2012, and noted that its video is not available. This additional stanza is given after the main song. I could not find its audio or video even now. Also, I do not remember the source of this additional stanza now.]

[Ed Note: We already have a category on this blog named “Dance Under Duress”; with this song, we now introduce a similar category “Sing Under Duress”. 🙂 ]

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 15
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘झ’ – झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान ॰ ॰ ॰

बस्ती बस्ती पर्वत पर्वत गाता जाये बंजारा  ॰ ॰ ॰

Over the hills and through the valleys; on lonely roads and barren deserts; be it crowded cities or a lonely boatman – there is always a song, and your voice with it, don’t have to search far. . .

– – – – –

What a gem of discovery this song is. I can’t recall having heard it earlier. The film is ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ from 1954. The film itself is not so unfamiliar – three songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. Although of course it is lesser known than its more famous same name predecessor from 1935. Btw, there is another film by the same name in 1977 also.

But this song – such a melodious creation it is, and a surprise that it has remained obscure for such a long time.

The 1954 ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ is produced by MO Suhel for the banner of Suhel Art Productions, Bombay and is directed by SM Raza. Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film, all composed by Aziz Hindi. Four song writers are listed – Manohar Khanna, Jaan Nisar Akhtar, Arshi Ajmeri and Khaawar Zamaa. This song is from the pen of Jaan Nisar Akhtar. An interesting aside, the name of assistant music director is listed as Madan Sachdev. I wonder if this is the same person as S Madan, who gave music for the 1960 film ‘Batwaara’. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please comment on this observation.

The star cast is listed as Shyama, Bharat Bhushan, Agha, NA Ansari, Krishna Kumari, Shameem, Mumtaz, Maqbool, A Roshan, Ahmed, and S Nazeer. And I just recalled something, and confirmed with the anniversaries list. 12 June, that is this past Tuesday, was the birth anniversary of Shyama. And yesterday, 14th June, was the birth anniversary of Bharat Bhushan. Given that they are the lead pair in this film, it is more than likely that this duet song is picturized on them. Earlier this week I was thinking of doing a post on Shyama, but could not get to it. This song turns out to be a bonus in that respect, reviving the memories of these two stalwart artists of Hindi cinema.

A lovely melodious song that is seems to have missed the attention of music lovers. Since I traced out this song on YT, I have heard it many times and simply do not seem to be getting over it. I am sure you will enjoy too.

Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

aaa aaaaaa
aaaaaa aaaa aaaaaaaaa
aaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaa aa

jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

dekho sajan kaisi har shai pe khushi chhaayee hai
baat mohabbat ki ban aayi hai
aaj miley do dil
milne ki ghadi aayi hai
kaisi haseen aaj ki tanhaai hai
jhoom raha kab se umangi samaan
choom rahi phool ka munh titliaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

nazron mein lehren hain
haathon mein tera haath hai
mera jahaan aaj mere saath hai
kitni jawaan kaisi rangeen mulaqaat hai
saath mein armaanon ki baraat hai
kehti huin pyaar bhari daastaan
beh rahin saagar ki taraf naddiyaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

Missing Films of 1960s – 75
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Thief Of Baghdad’ – a movie that has now became a legend, came to the silver screen almost a hundred years ago, in an era when even Hollywood was still in the silent zone. This archetypal tale adapted from the ‘Tales of a Thousand Nights’ (what we know better as ‘Arabian Nights’), was made into a film by Douglas Fairbanks who wrote the story for the film, produced it and played the lead role. Over the decades, this film has become a seminal benchmark of what fantasy cinema should be. The lavish production was much ahead of its time of the 1920s. In that era, the production cost of the film came to a whopping 1.1 million USD. One has to see to believe the scale of production – towering palaces, fabulous interiors, special effects to blow your mind and a cast of thousands much before Cecil B DeMille put his hand to the camera. This film is available in public domain, and it is a veritable treat to watch.

Over the decades, the film has been remade in Hollywood and also in other parts of the world, sustaining and perpetuating the fantasy of this adorable tale of a petty, brazen, street smart thief whose philosophy in life is “. . . what I like, I take.” His life changes when he sees the sleeping princess and falls in love with her. The plot of the story passes through many twists and turns and magical elements, before the two lovers are joined together. While watching the film, one gets this feeling – haan yes, this is how it happens in the adventure films of Hindi cinema. But the important thing to realize is – here is where it started. This is the original, and what followed are influenced from this one.

In Hindi films, the earliest reference we can garner is a silent film from 1931 – ‘Iraaque Ka Chor’. Although not essentially mentioning Baghdad, and in the absence of any plot details, it is possible that this film follows the Fairbanks original from 1924. Besides the interesting trivia that Baghdad and Basra were probably the only two well known cities of Iraq.

In the era of sound movies, 1934 is the first time this name appears. That year, two films were made – ‘Baghdad Ka Chor’ and ‘Iraaque Ka Chor’. The next in line is the 1946 film ‘Baghdad Ka Chor’, followed again in 1955 by another film of the same name. Then in 1968, we have the Dara Singh starrer ‘Thief Of Baghdad’. In 1977 came another version with the same title, the star cast being led by Shatrughan Sinha, Kabir Bedi and Sulakshana Pandit. In 1978, Kabir Bedi starred in another film by the same name, for TV.

With this song today we bring on board the 1968 film ‘Thief Of Baghdad’. The film is produced by Bohra Brothers and is directed by Shriram. The abbreviated list of actors is Dara Singh, Nishi, Helen, Savita, Jeevankala, P Kailash, BM Vyas, Sheikh, Ravi Kumar, Ram Kumar, Maqbool, Sunanda, Amritrana, Jilani, Sarita Devi, Munshi Munakka, Bijnor, Ramesh Kant, Johnny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Maruti, Rani, Gani, Mohammed Ali, B Sandow, Gulab, Gaffar, Mansoor, Mohammedali Steelman, Vimla, Khursheed and Saudagar Singh. And we see many of them in the video clip of this song.

The information about the songs in Geet Kosh is indicated as being not complete. It lists 5 songs, with indication that more songs are in the film. The film being available, I checked it and I can identify at least one more song which is not listed in Geet Kosh.

The credits of the film identify two songwriters – Aziz Ghaazi and SH Bihari. The writer of this song is not specifically identified. Music is given by Baldev Nath, which most likely is the same person as Baldev Nath Bali or BN Bali.

This song is a raaj darbaar dance song which is performed by Helen and Rani [Jeevankala]. The singing voice is just one, i.e. Asha Bhosle with the lines being shared by the two dancers on screen.
[Ed Note: Thanks to dear Prakash ji for correcting the identification of the lady dancer accompanying Helen in this song.]

In this screen situation, Nishi is the princess who has fallen in love with Dara Singh, a commoner. Dara Singh and his team is captured and are shown in chains. The scheming Wazir, role played by P Kailash (I need help to identify this actor) has imprisoned the King, and has forced the princess to marry him, given that her father and her lover are both his prisoners. So Nishi and this Wazir are seated in the two throne like chairs, and the dance is being performed for the occasion. As per the storyline of this film, Helen performs the role of Dara Singh’s younger sister.
[Ed Note: Once again thanks to dear Prakash ji for identifying the actor playing the role of the Wazir.]

The video clip shows a number of actors. There are two more men in chains. The one in mustard shirt with chains tied to his wrists (again need help to identify this actor) plays the role of Dara Singh’s younger brother in the film. The third person in chains, wearing a black shirt and with chains around his neck is Sheikh. There is a few other actors shown in momentary close up shots, who are also watching this performance. I request other readers and friends to please help identify them.

So with this song, the 1968 film ‘Thief Of Baghdad’ makes its debut on our blog. That also brings the count of films brought on board through this series now to 75. Wow. Let us see how many more we are able to add in the coming weeks. Working on the home work list that Katie Ben prepared for me, we shall not be hitting the century mark on this series, but I think we will get pretty close. 🙂

Today’s song is from a really unknown and unheard of film of the early era – ‘Fauladi Mukka’ (1936).

So far 3 films with this title are made in Hindi. The other two films were made in 1965 and 1985. The 1965 movie was a regular C grade action stunt movie of actor Aazad and the 1985 movie was a Tamil film dubbed in Hindi. It starred Rajinikant. I call him a sophisticated stunt actor, although he is known to have worked in serious social films too. But generally, in the world beyond Tamilnadu, Rajinikant is equivalent to unimaginable, logic-basher, nature-defying stunts which make you not only wonder but also bring you a smile.

It is a wonder that such an actor is treated like a God in south. But then, South has always been like that. Adoring the actors beyond acceptable norms, deifying them and even building temples for them. Once when I was travelling in Tamilnadu, I had seen a Temple for actress Khushboo (it was promptly destroyed by the same fans, when Khushboo made some sensible, practical and logical remarks during an AIDS awareness campaign). Now I hear there is a Temple for actress Namitha !

Forget about actors, but some typical film titles shout loudly about it being patently a stunt film. Can you ever imagine that films like Khooni Darinda, Khoon Ki Pyaasi Daayan, Khooni Jaadugar, Guru Ghantal, Atom Bomb, Bhedi Bungla, Khooni Laash, Madame Zapata, Daryayi Lutera and similar scary but funny title film, being a social meaningful film, showing a dedicated wife, dutiful son and disciplined children serving their grandparents?

The fun is, there is a fixed set of producers, directors and actors in an action film. Moreover, such films used to be shown in some obscure, dilapidated, old cinema houses. When I was young, I remember having seen stunt films in theatres of old city part of Hyderabad, having names like Taj, Delite and Moosa. Yes, a theatre on the banks of river Moosa was named as Moosa Theatre !

Ok, Ok, to make the matter short and sweet, today’s film too was a C grade stunt/action film, made by Wadia Movietone famous for such films. Low Budgets-No Publicity-Big Profits. This sure shot formula of Wadia Movietone prompted them to promote a foreign, daring girl, who was ready to any stunts in films. She overtook all the then prevailing stunt kings like Baburao Pehelwan, Kamran, Dalpat, Prakash and the likes of them and in a flash became famous as Fearless Nadia.

So, again coming to the point, ‘Fauladi Mukka’ was also a stunt film featuring well known action artists like Harishchandra Rao, Husn Banu, Sayani Atish, Dalpatram, Master Chhotu, Shahjehan etc. The MD was the usual stunt film specialist Master Mohammad. The leading lady Husn Banu’s story is very interesting.

Her mother Sharifa was an actress in the 20s and the 30s. She hailed from the Central Provinces and joined the Corinthian Theatre company of Calcutta, in which the famous Urdu writer Agha Hasra Kashmiri was also working. She and Agha fell in love. However during one performing tour, the Maharaja of Charkhari in Central Province, fell for Shareefa. He followed the drama company to Calcutta and bought the already debt ridden Corinthian Theatre company for Rs. 40 Lakhs. This included the entire property and the services of Agha and Shareefa too. Soon they resigned and Shareefa started acting in films.

A Parsi magician named Minoo Kooper (the actor singer Minu Cooper, the mystique, of Bombay was a different person) came to Calcutta to give performances. Shareefa was attracted to him and they both left on a tour of Far East. She went as his helper and a consort. For a year they stayed together. When Shareefa became pregnant, Minoo left them in Singapore and returned to India.

Roshan Ara aka  Husn Banu was born in Singapore on 8-2-1919. She was very beautiful. She started her career in Calcutta (just like her mother), by working in New Theatre’s film ‘Daaku Mansoor’ (1934). After this film, Shareefa brought her to Bombay and she started getting roles in Wadia films. She was working  only in C grade stunt action films. After 1940, she got 2 social films made by Bharat Laxmi films and in 1941 again 1 film each from Bhavnani productions and National studios. However she got only small or side roles.

In 1941, When she was selected for Ranjit’s film ‘Dhandora’ as a Heroine, this was a new experience for her as she had never worked in a social or a comedy movie as the lead actress. All her experience was for stunt films only. Husn Bano acted in 53 films and sang 44 songs in 16 films. She had married Wadia’s director Aspi Irani. Husn Bano worked in films till 1977; her last film was ‘Akhari Sajda and then she retired. She had a big house ‘Shareefa Manzil’ in Dadar, Bombay. On 23-11-1986, her husband Aspi Irani left home for work and he simply disappeared. He was never found and was declared as a “Missing Person” by the police.

Husn Banu was beautiful. She was featured in Lux Soap advertisement in the early 1940s. Leela Chitnis was the first to feature in this ad during early 1940. After that Azuri, Bharati Devi, Manorama, Ratanbai, Shobhana Samarth, Mumtaz Shanti, Neena, Sadhona Bose and Maya Banerjee have also featured in these ads.

Hero of this stunt film was Harishchandra Rao (Kadam). He was born in Bhuj, Gujarat on 11-8-1910. He did his early schooling in Bhuj, but his family shifted to Karachi, due to financial debacle. He did cycle repairing work and completed his matriculation by age of 18 years. He joined a touring film company. Once, while in Bombay he was watching the film shooting in Paramount company. Suddenly, the director offered him a role in the film. Thus he entered the films. from 1932 he did few silent films.

He joined Shankar Bhatt’s Prakash Pictures and worked in their first Talkie, ‘Bambai Ki Mohini’ (1934). He was with Prakash, upto 1939, doing stunt films inside and outside also. He did some films for Wadia too, in between. Finally he started his own company – Harishchandra Productions. He continued to work as actor, director and producer. He sang few songs also.

Some of his films were ‘Daulat’ (1937), ‘Naujawan’ (1937), ‘Rangila Mazdoor’ (1938), ‘Rangila Jawaan’ (1940), ‘Sukhi Jeevan’ (1942), ‘Lehri Jawaan’ (1935), ‘Inaam’, ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1934), ‘Durbaan’ (1946), ‘Laat Sahib’ (1946), ‘Tamaasha’ (1942) etc. He worked in about 42 films.

His brother Chandrarao Kadam was also a stunt actor. He was known as Stunt King. He had his own company – Chandrarao Films. He acted, directed and produced films. The brothers were friendly with Master Bhagwan and gave him preference in their films, till Bhagwan started his own company- Jagriti films. Later on Chandrarao floated his own Chandivali Studio in Bombay suburb, which is still actively run by his progeny.

The film ‘Fauladi Mukka’ had only 5 songs. Listen to today’s song. There are some dialogues in the beginning. If you recollect, there was a famous song by Surendra and Bibbo, from film Manmohan-36, which had a prose line by Bibbo- क्या मै अंदर आ सकती हुं ?. This made the song very popular. In today’s song also similar lines are there and these songs were recorded earlier than Manmohan-36, as per record numbers.  may be this song perhaps had been an inspiration for the ‘Manmohan’ song. Just a thought !

The film and singer Harishchandra Rao make their debut on the blog today.

“Nishaana”(1950) was directed by M H Wazahat for M & T Films, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Madhubala, Geeta Bali, Kanhaiyalal, Yakoob, Nawab Kashmiri, Durga Khote, Cuckkoo, Shyama, Shanti Madhok, Ahmad Agha, Shah, Balam, Guru, Basu, Nazafi etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Nishaana”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Nakshab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khursheed Anwar.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that the song might have been picturised on Madhubala. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Wo rooth gaye dil toot gaya (Nishaana)(1950) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Nakshab, MD-Khursheed Anwar

Lyrics

wo rooth gaye dil toot gayaa
duniyaa mein hamaaraa koi nahin
ae duniyaa waalon ham jaisaa
taqdeer kaa maaraa koi nahin

ab dukh kaa bhanwar hai aur dil hai
o o
kashti ko bachaana mushqil hai
ab dukh kaa bhanwar hai aur dil hai
kashti ko bachaanaa mushqil hai
majdhaar mein maajhi chhod gayaa
toofaan hai kinaaraa koi nahin
ae duniyaawaalon ham jaisaa
taqdeer kaa maaraa koi nahin

khushiyon kaa zamaanaa beet gaya o o o
ulfat kaa fasaanaa khatm huaa
khushiyon kaa zamaanaa beet gaya o
ulfat kaa fasaanaa khatm huaa
jeene ki tamannaa kyaa hogi
jeene kaa sahaaraa koi nahin
wo rooth gaye dil toot gayaa
duniyaa mein hamaaraa koi nahin
ae duniyaawaalon ham jaisaa
taqdeer kaa maaraa koi nahin

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ज’ – जब घड़ी बोले चार गोरी करके सिंगार ॰ ॰ ॰

॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰
तुम्हें रुकना पड़ेगा, मेरी आवाज़ सुन कर ॰ ॰ ॰

जी, आपकी आवाज़ सुन कर तो हम आज भी रुक जाते हैं।  आप खुद ही कहीं दूर हो, जहां हमारी आवाज़ शायद नहीं पहुँचती॰ ॰ ॰

Looking at the title line, I am tempted to start searching for songs which are built around the theme of the clock and  time on the clock. Yes, there are a few songs that come to mind, but then likely many of them are probably already here on the blog. Let me see.

Coming to the next letter in the alphabet for this series. The song that I have selected is a duet of Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur from the film ‘Gambler’. Not, this is not the 1971 Dev Sb starer, but an obscure and forgotten film from 1960. One song of this film is posted on the blog in July 2013. Close to five years now, that we are getting to revisit this film and add to its counter.

When I look at the detailed credits of this film, I am a bit surprised that this film is obscure and unfamiliar. The banner name is Vikas Productions from Bombay. More important, the producers of this film are Ram Kamlani and Dwarka Khosla, the latter being also the director of this film.

The star cast is quite, rather very impressive, for it includes Premnath, Shakeela, Agha, Poornima, Pran, KN Singh, Shammi, Madan Puri, Kanchanmala, Kukku, Mridula, Raja Amrohi, Jai Kumar, Meena, Ram Kamlani. Hmmm, a Premnath and Shakeela starrer in the late 1950s. . . should have been a better known film.

Anyway, seven songs listed. All songs from the pen of Prem Dhawan and music by Chitragupt, assisted by Dilip Dholakia. The song itself has a peculiar signature – a long pause of silence in the middle of the last word in last lines of the mukhda and the antaraas. I can’t recall a similar tune design for a song in Hindi films.

The song is a ‘nok-jhonk’ song – the gentleman says something to offend the lady to start with, she complains about it, he retracts and apologizes, and then all is well once again. And the planned tryst at 4 O’Clock is very much on. The pause becomes so noticeable, as the rest of song is quite fast paced. As I said, a peculiar tune design experimented by Chitragupt. A fun song, I am sure you will enjoy.

Song – Jab Ghadi Bole Chaar Gori Kar Ke Singaar  (Gambler) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

jab ghadi bole chaar
gori kar ke singaar
chali aana us paar
bolo pa. . . .kki
sainyaan karo aitbaar
main hoon aisi hoshiyaar
jab baje paune chaar
aaun na. . . .kki
jab ghadi bole chaa..aar

kehti paune chaar hai
par aati saade saat hai
arre kehti paune chaar hai
par aati saade saat hai
boley bhi to kya boley
tu aurat ki zaat hai
oo oo oo oo
karey ulti ulti baat
karey ulti ulti baat
kahey din ko bhi raat
ja na bolun tere saath
tu hai jha. . . .kki
jab ghadi bole chaar
gori kar ke singaar
chali aana us paar
bolo pa. . . .kki
jab ghadi bole chaar

khoti kar ke taalna
bas tera to ye kaam hai
tu kya jaane pyaar bhi
kis chidiya ka naam hai
oo oo oo oo
meri baaten nahin khel
o meri baaten nahin khel
sachcha hai ye dil ka mel
teri khaatir jaaun jail
peesoon cha. . . .kki
sainyaan karo aitbaar
main hoon aisi hoshiyaar
jab baje paune chaar
aaun na. . . .kki
jab ghadi bole chaa..aa..aar

yun na khota jaan ri tu
hum mardon ki baat ko
haan samjhi
yun na khota jaan ri tu
hum mardon ki baat ko
tu boley to aaun main
paidal aadhi raat ko
oo oo oo oo
achha maani teri baat
thank you
achha maani teri baat
to phir de haathon mein haath
hoga tera mera saath
bada lu. . . .ckky
jab ghadi bole chaar
gori kar ke singaar
chali aana us paar
bolo pa. . . .kki
sainyaan karo aitbaar
main hoon aisi hoshiyaar
jab baje paune chaar
aaun na. . . .kki
jab ghadi bole chaa..aa..aar

जब घड़ी बोले चार
गोरी कर के सिंगार
चली आना उस पार
बोलो प॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
सैंयां करो एतबार
मैं हूँ ऐसी होशियार
जब बजे पौने चार
आऊँ न॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चा॰॰आर

कहती पौने चार है
पर आती साड़े सात है
अरे कहती पौने चार है
पर आती साड़े सात है
बोले भी तो क्या बोले
तू औरत की ज़ात है
ओ ओ ओ ओ
करे उल्टी उल्टी बात
करे उल्टी उल्टी बात
कहे दिन को भी रात
जा ना बोलूँ तेरे साथ
तू है झ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चार
गोरी कर के सिंगार
चली आना उस पार
बोलो प॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चार

खोटी कर के टालना
बस तेरा ये काम है
तू क्या जाने प्यार भी
किस चिड़िया का नाम है
ओ ओ ओ ओ
मेरी बातें नहीं खेल
ओ मेरी बातें नहीं खेल
सच्चा है ये दिल का मेल
तेरी खातिर जाऊँ जेल
पीसूँ च॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
सैंयां करो एतबार
मैं हूँ ऐसी होशियार
जब बजे पौने चार
आऊँ न॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चा॰॰आर

यूं ना खोटा जान री तू
हम मर्दों की बात को
हाँ समझी
यूं ना खोटा जान री तू
हम मर्दों की बात को
तू बोले तो आऊँ मैं
पैदल आधी रात को
ओ ओ ओ ओ
अच्छा मानी तेरी बात
थैंक यू
अच्छा मानी तेरी बात
तो फिर दे हाथों में हाथ
होगा तेरा मेरा साथ
बड़ा ल॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चार
गोरी कर के सिंगार
चली आना उस पार
बोलो प॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
सैंयां करो एतबार
मैं हूँ ऐसी होशियार
जब बजे पौने चार
आऊँ न॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चा॰॰आर
