OK so, ‘Ek Ladki Saat Ladke’ from 1961, is the film that today joins the ranks of films with all their songs posted. It is Yippeee-land time for this film. And that’s all folks, that I can say for this film. Another one of the ‘Lost Children’, about whom nothing more is known, nothing more exists in memory. Yes, there is information that is contained in the Geet Kosh. Based on the Geet Kosh inputs, the basic demographics for this film are as follows.

The film is produced and directed by Roop K Shorey. The cast of actors is very brief – Ravinder Kapoor, Ameeta, Majnu, Badri Prasad, and Durga Khote. After having tasted success with ‘Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949) and ‘Ek Do Teen’ (1953), Roop K Shorey tried to repeat a similar sounding formula in this film.  The earlier two films had Motilal and Meena K Shorey as the lead pair, and Vinod as the music director.  But in this film, the only common link is Vinod, who also was replaced by S Mohinder, in unfortunate circumstances.

This is one of the films that music director Vinod was working on when he unexpectedly passed away in 1959.  Some songs had been recorded, and for the remaining songs, the composition work was completed by S Mohinder.  In the Geet Kosh, for some songs of this film, the name of the music director is not specifically identified.  This song is one of them.

Geet Kosh lists five songs for this film. For all the five songs, the words are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Thankfully though, all the five listed songs are available as 78 rpm recordings. And yet once again, an obscure and lost film, whose songs are simply superb.

Teri Zulfn Ke Saaye Mein Jeena Hai Jee”, such a soft romantic duet, in the voices of Rafi Sb and Asha ji. So soft is the tone and rendition of this song that Atul in his write up of this song says – “This is an interesting song where Rafi sings softly in a velvety voice. In fact this is a song where Rafi sings like Talat Mehmood.”

Itni Si Baat Ka Fasaana Na Banaao”, another enchanting duet of Rafi Sb and Asha ji.

Agar Tum Na Hanste To Ham Bhi Na Phanste”, a delightful all female duet, in the voices of Asha ji and Sudha Malhotra.

And then there is this song that almost made it to the Fabulous Foot Tapper series, but then was pulled by me for my ‘Ye hai Bombay Meri Jaan’ series – “Main Flora, Rang Mera Gora”. Aah ys, expectedly, in the voice of Asha ji.

Coming to this song for today. The singing voices are of Mahendra Kapoor and Asha ji.  One of the songs for which you are bound to say, ‘really, wow’. A song that is basically crafted on the traditional Tappe genre from Punjab. The singers compete with one another, in that one will present a two liner as a query or a teaser, and the other singer is then supposed to suitably respond, addressing the query or posing a counter query or giving a ‘मुंह तोड़ जवाब’ (a fitting repartee), to the teaser floated by the first singer. This traditional folk genre is very popular in Punjab, and I am sure there are corresponding genres in many other regional cultures. In Punjabi, there is almost an unending variety of this type of song. Just this song itself is a  double length song, lasting more than six minutes, and is accommodated on two sides of a 78 rpm record.

A very interesting tete-a-tete between the two singers, wherein many flavors of the matters of the heart are being expressed. I am sure you will really enjoy this number.

Song – Mal Mal Ke Jaaye Mera Jiyaa (Ek Ladki Saat Ladke) (1961) Singers – Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Vinod/S Mohinder

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.
