Sometimes, things can’t get more rare than this. As we look for rare combination of artists, and especially singers, we come across combinations where two artists have worked together in a song, once or maybe twice in the entire history of Indian cinema. This song today, is one such song. It is a duet, rather I should correct myself, it is a trio of singers. There are two female voices, and one male voice. The male voice is not identified, even in the Geet Kosh listings. The female voices are Shamshad Begum and Hamida Bano. And the year is 1948.

It has been full three years almost to the day, that the last song of this music director was posted here on this blog. After three long years, we have another post with a song composed by this maverick composer whose quality of music is exemplary, but the quality of his social interface left a lot to be desired. Uncompromising to the last, he managed to do a lot less work, than he could have. A tale of regrets all the way, for himself, and for his fans – that we were bereft of more of his creativity.

Remembering Sajjaad Husain on the anniversary of his birth today (15th June).

Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

सच्ची, बहुत दिन हो गए बंबई गए। चलिए, फिर एक बार चलते हैं, मायानगरी में, एक बहुत ही अनूठे और अनसुने गीत के साथ।

Really, many days now since the last visit to Bombay. So I take you there once again today, along with a very rare, almost unheard and a very out of the ordinary song.

Genius of Jaidev – 27
———————————-

Jaidev had tried a number of humorous songs in his first film ‘Joru Ka Bhai’ (1955). In fact, the theme song ‘Saari Khudaayee Ek Taraf’ with S Balbir and S D Batish, and ‘Dharam Par Mar Jaana Koi Badi Baat Nahin Hai’ with Kishore Kumar and S Balbir, set both these qawaalli type songs in the humorous mood that the situation may have demanded.

         Bombay Gangout – Part 5
         The Day After.

The next day to the gangout meeting, we had plans for a visit to our dear Arun ji. As the readers may be aware, Arun ji had not attended the gangout meeting. The personal family circumstances in the recent past, had been exigent to the extreme.  His life partner had passed away just 10 days prior to the scheduled meeting. We had decided to go ahead with the meeting, sans his participation.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 3
—————————————————–

There is something very special about his voice.  Not that other thespians of the industry are any way less impressive.  Every actor and actress have their own unique styles and expressions, and many of them have become memorable across the decades.  The sounds and the words sometimes combine together to leave such an imprint on the mind of the audiences, that certain dialogues of certain artists become popular and become part of the current idiom.

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….5
————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1955 film ‘Faraar’.

We have already discussed the happenings in Hindi film industry in 1955, in the previous episode.  Name of this film had not featured anywhere, simply because it was neither a famous film nor a very successful film.  Its music too was nothing to write home about.  Even in such a film, we find a gem or a song special for other reasons.  I selected this film song for few reasons.

I can imagine in my mind’s eye. Atul ji getting interviewed on some online forum. The interviewer asks about what he does. Atul ji tells him that he is managing this Atul Song A Day blog. The interviewer asks Atul ji to describe this blog, what prompted him to set this up and tell about its specialties. Atul ji starts telling about the blog, its origins and its features. Near the end of the interview, the interviewer asks so tell what is new on the blog today. Atul ji raises one hand to cover a yawn, then remarks – “nothing much, the usual stuff, we just clocked another 100 songs today.” 😀 😀

When I plan to write an article for any series or a song, I ensure that I gather more than necessary material,so that I can select the desired material from that.In such exercises,many times I come across some unusual songs-in the sense that sometimes the singer is uncommon,or the theme of the song is different,or the composer is special or even the song is too obscure but needs an exposure. In such cases,I keep these songs in the ‘Draft’ section of my computer,to be used in future, at an appropriate time.
