People who are experienced Hindi movie watchers will know that songs and dance play the same role in these movies as the term “black hole” plays in Astronomy. Wherever in doubt, introduce a song and dance (or a black hole) as the case may be and your target audience is satisfied.🙂

Missing Films of 1960s – 18
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

In presenting this series, we are dealing with a very familiar era, when the radio was a prevalent medium and a big support to bring film songs to the listening public. More songs were heard, more songs got stored in the collective memory, and yes, compared to the earlier decades, a much larger percentage of films had their music released on gramophone records, and hence a much larger number of film songs are available. And yet, there are still a few films for which any audio or video material has not surfaced in the public domain. I will provide some statistics for 1961 and 1962, when I close the decade of 1962, three or four episodes hence.

Earlier in the morning today, I received an email.  Antaraa Mondal, film journalist and a good friend, sent me a link.  This link is for an interview of Majrooh Sultanpuri by Peeyush Sharma, originally recorded in 1993.  And republished today.  On the anniversary of his birth.  I read through the interview.  I find quite a bit of discussion of Majrooh Sb’s working with another stalwart, music director SD Burman.  Quite a coincidence that it is the birth anniversary of Burman Dada also today.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 24
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is not that Arvinder ji has requested this song loong back. His request is fairly recent. But he has been so consistently persistent that he has been reminding me at least twice a day (somedays even more than twice) to post this song. A song that has been in the memory for oh so long. But he could not find it anywhere on the internet and YouTube. When he checked with me a few days ago, I confirmed to him that yes, I have it. Then last week, it so happened that he was riding with me in my car, and I had the very CD in the player, that contains this song. When the song played, wow, the excitement on his face was something that has to be seen to be believed.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 23

‘Aankhen’ was released in 1950.  Most people remember it for being the debut film of music director Madan Mohan.  Amongst all the wonderful songs that caught the attention of the listeners, there is this lovely melody in the voice of Meena Kapoor, that really steals away your heart – “Mori Atariya Pe Kaaga Bole, Mora Jiya Doley, Koi Aa Rahaa Hai”.  For me, it is this one song that makes this film and its music memorable.  This is one of the two songs that Bharat Vyas wrote for this film.

Remembering Bharat Vyas on the anniversary of his passing away (5th July).

Missing Gems from the Golden 50s….song No. 3
—————————————————-
Today’s song is from a film of 1954-Pehli Jhalak.

The year 1954 was a mixed treat for the film industry. The trend of movies on Detective or crime themes began this year,starting with Aar paar and Taxi Driver. Filmistan was the most successful production house with two superhit films having popular music from composer Hemant kumar. Naagin and Jaagriti were the films. Bimal Roy made three films- Naukari,Biraj bahu and Baap Beti ( based on Guy De Maupassant’s Simon’s Papa). H S Rawail made Mastana based on Chaplin’s The Kid.

The arrangement for the lunch was in an adjacent cave in the dungeon itself.  We took leave of Mastermind, who had thus far been connected online with us, with the promise to reconnect, once the luncheon proceedings were done with.

Hindi movie music was predominanatly based on classical music during the first decade (viz 1930s). It was in early 1940s that Ghulam Haider introduced Punjabi Folk music based songs in “Khazaanchi” (1941). This paradigm shift was avidly lapped up by public and this paved the way for folk music based songs in Hindi movies. Ghulam Haider was followed by Naushad who introdced UP folk music in his compositions. That opened the floodgates and then we had different music directors composing songs based on folk music from different regions.
