Genius of Jaidev – 44
——————————-

Some of the songs mentioned in HFGK for film ‘Do Boond Paani’ (1971) as separate songs, but have been combined in ASAD. Also, I could not find audio or video of the remaining two songs. So I go to the next Film ‘Ek Thi Reeta’, also from 1971.

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.

Today’s song is from the film Lajawab-50. It is sung by Anil Biswas, Lata and Binapani Mukherjee, with chorus. It is a lovely,rhythmatic,foot-tapping song and clearly shows the unmistakable stamp of the composer Anil Biswas. He was hailed as one of the most original, revolutionary and experimental composer, even dubbed as “The Bhishma Pitamaha” of HFM.

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).

A promise that was made in 1970, I am sure, continues to be pursued.  In Aligarh.  As the poet turns a graceful ninety today.  Yes, it is the ninetieth birthday of Gopaldas Saxena, a litterateur par excellence.  A poet that we are more familiar with by his pen name – Neeraj.

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.

The film shot in Chambal Velley ravines, under police protection in MP state, and Mohan Studios (Mumbai), highlights the acting talents of its star cast, Waheeda Rehman and Sunil Dutt, and indeed the music by musical genius Jaidev.
