Today’s song is from film ‘Jawani Ki Pukaar’ aka ‘Call Of Youth’ (1942). The film makes its debut on our blog today. It is sung by Sarfaraz Deen, who too makes his debut with this song.

The song is a parody song. The dictionary meaning of ‘parody’ is ” humorous exaggerated imitation”. This was quite a popular genre of songs in Hindi films. The earliest parody song is found in film ‘Deccan Queen’ (1936), sung by Surendra in his debut film. The song – “Birha Ki Aag Lagi Mere Mann Mein“, which is a parody of the iconic KL Saigal song from the 1935 film ‘Devdas’ – “Baalam Aaye Baso Morey Mann Mein“. The producers at Sagar Movietone, (the banner under which ‘Deccan Queen’ was produced) wanted Surendra to become ‘Saigal’ of Bombay !

People have a misconception that making a parody song is very easy, but it is not so. First of all, there should be a suitable situation in the film. Secondly, the lyrics should not only be funny, but they should also fit into the metre of the original tune. Thirdly, the singer must sing more or less in the original singer’s style. Lastly, the composer must arrange the music appropriately. The basic condition for a parody song is that the original song or songs must be well known and popular. In a good parody song, tunes of at least 3 stanzas are used from 3 different songs. I know of longer songs where 6 to 7 famous songs have been used.

During the period 16-3-2013 to 2-4-2013, I had discussed 10 parody songs on this blog, for my series ‘Parody Songs’. On the blog, a total of 22 parody songs have been discussed so far. Even after the series was over, I have discussed 4 more parody songs. Many MDs, though not all, used to compose parody songs in their films.

When I was searching for parody songs for my series, I found that there is a list of more than 150 parody songs, between the years 1936 to 1980, available on the website ‘Hamara Forum’, which was once upon a time a very popular and active site for film songs and related topics. Sad that this site is no more active, but one can still find valuable information even on it. (I have been able to locate several lists on various topics, for example I found a list of double role movies. The list was so detailed that it gave details by and by year. Like in how many films Amitabh Bachchan has done double role, in which year etc.) I have seen many sites closing down after only few years on the internet. Some of them were very useful too. Alas !

Initially, when I got today’s song from one of my friends, I became excited, for 2 reasons. One, the film and the singer would make their debut and two, this song will give me an opportunity to write about a less known or rather unknown Music Director, Vasant Kumar Naidu. With my recent experience with the song “Hum Aage Badhte Jaayen” from film ‘Anban’ (1944), I first sent this song to our Sudhir ji to inquire if he had this song in his collection and if it was longer than the one I had sent. Sure enough, Sudhir ji replied yes for both points. This was a good news as the song would have its full length now. Very kindly, Sudhir ji has uploaded the song and here we are to enjoy it. Thank you Sudhir ji. The world is a better place with people like you !

This blog is read by millions of music lovers from all over the world. Considering the figure of visitors by the counter, a quick rough calculation tells me that on an average 3000 visitors come to the blog every day. Some of them are connected with the film industry too, in direct or indirect way. Sometimes, people who are close or distant relatives of alive or departed artists, leave their comments here. I have been able to establish contact with them and get valuable information about those cine artistes. Like this, I was able to write articles on actor/singer Parshuram, actress Indurani, Bhudo Advani, Latika, Mukri and Mirza Musharraf etc.

In case of music director Vasant Kumar Naidu, no information is available in any book or on the internet. Only Pankaj Raag writes about his films and songs in his book ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’. This too is based on HFGK only. Luckily Ms. Sai Lakshmi and Mr. Krishna Kumar Naidu, niece and nephew of Vasant Kumar Naidu have visited our blog and left some comments when Sadanand ji had discussed a different song (not of Vasant Kumar Naidu) and had just mentioned his name in the write up. I picked up this slender lead and wrote to both of them. It is to their credit that both responded promptly . They tried to provide song and film information from different sites, which I already knew. After exchanging few mails, they sent me a newspaper cutting, announcing the passing away of Vasant Kumar Naidu, along with his photo and his a copy of his death certificate. Krishna Kumar ji also gave me some information about his family. I can understand their limitations. Naidu ji died in 1951. At that time these two were very young and now there may not be any other elder who may provide information about this artist.

Anyway, earlier I had zero information, now at least I have some information about him, plus his filmography as per the HFGK. I sincerely thank Ms. Sai Lakshmi ji and Shri Krishna Kumar Naidu ji for their help.

Vasant Kumar ji was born in 1915. His family had settled in Burma like thousands of other South Indian families. When Burma was struggling for independence, in the 1930s, most Indians left Burma and came to India. Many went to Calcutta and many went to South India. Many families walked for around 6 months from Burma to India. Mr.Vasant Kumar’s family was one amongst them. They walked from Rangoon to Madras. The family settled in Madras for some years.

Vasant Kumar ji had come alone to Bombay earlier in search of a career in music. He was an instrumentalist and could play any string instruments and also harmonium. He was also very much interested in reading different languages. There were many books that he read. He was also very keen in dressing up and had several suits in those days. He joined the industry and started growing as a Music Director. He then called his mother and other siblings to live with him in Mumbai along with his eldest brother’s widow and her son. He had 4 brothers. His eldest brother expired in Madras itself. Vasant Kumar ji was the second eldest. He had two younger brothers as well. They all lived on Peddar Road initially. Later, he left his Peddar Road flat and moved to Parel.

Vasant Kumar ji thereafter lived in Parel until his passing away on 16-10-1951.

Vasant Kumar ji got married in Madras. This marriage was arranged by his mother. Eventually his other brothers also got married. All three brothers and their wives stayed under the same roof in Parel in a joint family which was headed and supported monetarily by Vasant Kumar ji. His younger brother, the late Mr. Pandurang Naidu was also working towards a career in music. He became a musician (played banjo and mandolin). Vasant Kumar ji taught several string instruments to his brother, Pandurang ji. His youngest brother, the late Mr. Sreenivasn Naidu, became a composer at a later stage of his life for the Indian Railways Music Academy (Central Railway Cultural Academy).

Vasant Kumar ji is survived by his only daughter, Mrs. Pramila Naidu, who is now a widow. She lives in Pune with her grown up children. Pramila ji was around 5 years when her fatherpassed away. She has vague memories of her father. It is sad to see her struggling now financially. She continues to gives tuition at the age of 70 to make her living. She lawfully owns 3 flats in Parel, Mumbai but the 3rd generation of the family has occupied these flats and are not willing to vacate. This property is now worth in crores. The cousins of Pramila ji have gotten together and have filed a law suit against these 3rd generation greedy family members. The law suit is going on now for the past 3 years.

Vasant Kumar ji started his career in 1939 by giving music to films ‘Thunder’ and ‘Pakke Badmash’. Till 1947, he composed music for 22 films, as per the HFGK. He sang 1 song as a duet with Khan Mastana for film ‘Mere Sajan’ (1941). He has composed 160 songs in these 22 films. His filmography, as per the Geet Kosh, is ‘Thunder’ (1939), ‘Pakke Badmash’ (1939), ‘Rangeela Jawaan’ (1940), ‘Jung-e-Azadi’ (1940), ‘Desh Bhakt’ (1940), ‘Suhaana Geet’ (1941), ‘Meri Khwaish’ (1941), ‘Mere Saajan’ (1941), ‘Lehri Jawaan’ (1941), ‘Lala ji’ (1942), ‘Call Of Youth’ (1942), ‘Maata’ (1942), ‘Watan Ki Pukaar’ (1943), ‘Nai Zindagi’ (1943), ‘Mohabbat Ki Jeet (1943), ‘Daawat’ (1943), ‘Circus Girl’ (1943), ‘Bhaagta Bhoot’ (1943), ‘Beda Paar’ (1944), ‘Shaahi Khazaana’ (1946), ‘Chamkati Bijli’ (1946) and ‘Toote Dil’ (1947).

Unfortunately, Vasant Kumar ji got mostly B and C stunt and action films for composing the music. Big banners like National Studios gave him an opportunity with film ‘Lala ji’ (1942), in which he got many songs sung by Anil Biswas, Kusum Mantri, and Vatsala Kumthekar. However such films came to him only as an exception, therefore his exposure to audience was limited and his name did not gain any fame. Actually, many big, well known and popular singers have sung for him.

However, without a mentor, God Father or the support of a big banner, it became impossible for Vasant Kumar ji to grow further. During the transition period of 1947-48, when many composers migrated to Pakistan, the existing big composers made their positions solid. Thus smaller composers never got any opportunity to benefit from the void created by the exit of composers. This was the case of many small time composers like him.

The film ‘Jawani Ki Pukaar’ (1942) has 9 songs. Lyricists are AK Sindhi. He has written lyrics for another film – ‘Meri Khwahish’ (1941). The film was directed by D Bilimoria, who was also the hero of the film. I tried to find out more about this film in the 1942 issue of ‘Film India’, but nothing is mentioned anywhere- not even an advertisement. Other cast of the film includes Harish, Kalyani, WM Khan, Samson, Urmila, Alaknanda (elder sister of Sitara Devi), Gulab etc.

This song is sung by Sarfaraz Deen. I could not get any information about Deen as a singer. This song is a parody of 3 famous and popular songs, namely
1.  “Saawan Ke Nazaare Hain” from film ‘Khazaanchi’ (1941) ( Shamshad Begum, Ghulam Haider)
2.   “Chal Chal Re Naujawaan” from film “Kangan” (1941) ( Ashok Kumar, Leela Chitnis)
3.   “Main Kya Jaanu Kya Jaadu Hai” from film “Zindagi” (1940) (KL Saigal)

Now, let us enjoy this parody song….

Missing Films of 1960s – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

At the beginning of this month, June 1st, I had a personal reminder to myself – passing away anniversary of Khwaja Ahmed Abbas. I was wanting to do a brief remembrance post. Other “things” intervened and the day came and went. Then, it so happened that on the 15th June, there was a set of reminders and requests for the birth centenary celebrations of Sajjaad Husain. Not many “things” intervened that day, and I was able to locate a rare recording of a song from film ‘Dharam’ (1945), as yet unposted, and was able to post the remembrance article in good time. You may remember the title line of that song “Chali Pawan Purvaai, Chali Pawan”.

Allow me to come to the connection between these seemingly unconnected events and songs. On YouTube, I have a subscriber friend, who is very stridently focused on the Hindi film music from the decade of 1960s. After following my uploads on YouTube for some time, she now frequently sends ‘farmaish’ messages to post rare songs from 1960s. Most of the time it is just this line – “please post unavailable songs of films from 1960s”. Whenever I post an unavailable song from 1960s, she is quite profuse in her appreciation and thanks. Whenever I post a song that might be a repeat on account of quality or completeness of the song, there is a terse comment from her – “Already available. Pls post unheard, unavailable songs”. Whenever I post any song which is not from the decade of 1960s, she invariably comments something to the effect that –  “Ok, so this is a good song”, and then adds the more important reminder – “please post songs from 1960s”. I am gratified at the persistence of her requests of her choice of songs. 🙂

So on 15th, when I posted the Sajjaad Husain song “Chali Pawan Purvaai, Chali Pawan”, as expected, her response was almost immediate. “Good song”, was all she said for the upload, and added, “pl upload rare & unavailable songs from sixties.” This was followed almost immediately by another comment – “Pl try to locate song chali hawa purvai from Hamara Ghar (1964).”

Now, she generally does not put in a request for a specific song, this is probably the first time that she has. Earlier, the reminders are for songs from sixties, and occasionally a movie name – whether I have any songs from that particular film. On seeing her comment, I just checked some, and was able to locate this song in my collection. The film name ‘Hamaara Ghar’ seemed familiar, so I checked our blog, and found that two songs of this film are already posted here. Then did a double take, and realized – the two songs posted are from a film of the same name from 1950. In fact there are no songs posted of this 1964 film. Checking on YouTube, what I find is that except for one song (“Saare Jahaan Se Achha. . .”), no other song of this film is available online.

And so I said to myself, here is an opportunity for a debut song for the day. 🙂

And immediately, as I started locating information about this song and film, I realized that this film is produced and directed by Khwaja Ahmed Abbas. The connection came full circle. The film is produced under Abbas Sb’s own banner of Naya Sansaar, Bombay. As I tried to locate more information, I came across this interesting anecdote.

“Shehar Aur Sapna”, the 1963 production by Abbas Sb, which focused on migrant population and housing problem in the city of Bomaby, had won the National Award for the Best Film of the year. Apparently, at the function where the award was given, the then prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, requested Abbas Sb for a film for children. It seems that Abbas Sb took on that request almost immediately, because the film ‘Hamaara Ghar’ was released in the very next year i.e. 1964. This year was also when Nehru ji passed away (on 27th May). I have not been able to locate the information about the release date of this film, and whether Nehru ji was able to see this film, that was produced by Abbas Sb at his request.

The star cast of this film includes Sonal Mehta, Yasmeen, Rekha Rao, Tanya Siraaj, Pasha Azeem, Deepak Prasad, Sunil Kaushik, Noel Moses, Jai Prakash Narula, Maruti, Narayan Devanpalli, Levi Aaron, Ghanshyam Rohera, Nana Palsikar, Surekha, Dilip Raj, Anwar Abbas, Meena Abbas, and Yunus Parvez. As one reads this list, one can make out that the first many names are likely child artists, who are the lead performers in this film. Incidentally, the name Sunil Kaushik is of the second son of JP Kaushik, the music director for this film. Also, if I am not mistaken, the name Pasha Azeem is of Abbas Sb’s son.

This social drama is a film on national integration, at the level of children. I am able to locate a poster of this film online. The poster, all in tones of light blue, depicts a row of thirteen children, boys and girls, standing in ankle deep waves on a beach, and the name of the film is written in the sky background, in all languages of India. The caption at the bottom says – “A Film For Children Of All Ages”. Abbas Sb in his element of social responsibility, as always.

The film has six songs, five of them are penned by Ali Sardar Jafri. The sixth is the song “Saare Jahaan Se Achha. . .” written by the legendary Iqbal. Music is by Jag Phool Kaushik, the music director who started his film career with Abbas Sb for his 1963 film ‘Shehar Aur Sapna’. On the blog “Beete Huye Din” by Shishir Krishna Sharma, I am able to locate a detailed write up on this music director. An interesting trivia to note is that Anil Biswas was the resident music director for all films of Abbas Sb, before 1963. In fact, at the first instance, when JP Kaushik went to meet Abbas Sb with a reference, seeking work as a music director, he was told that Anil Biswas had already started to work on this particular film. Later, I assume that as Anil Da moved to New Delhi, likely during the production time of this film, the work for music direction was given to JP Kaushik. As I read in this blog, two songs for this film were already recorded by Anil Da, but later both of them were not used in the film. It would be interesting to track down the whereabouts of these songs, which I would like to designate as rarities, on account of circumstances.

The Geet Kosh lists only the name Vijaya Majumdar as the singer in this song accompanied by chorus. However, as we listen to this song, we are able to make out at least three more unidentified voices – a male voice, a female voice and a child’s voice, who get to render two or three lines each in between. Listening to the song, it seems like a children’s group song. The words are lot of fun, but also carry deeper meanings. And the music and rendering sequence of different voices and chorus, make it a delightful song to hear. The music is so minimal. Seems that this song is picturized on the beach location which is depicted in the poster of the film. I refer to the lines

daud ke neeli neeli lehren
paaon hamaare choomen

Once again, a wonderful memory from the radio listening days, which I have been prompted to dig out and showcase, based on the request of my friend on the YouTube. I am very sure you are going to like this song very much.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Today we will have a song from the 1957 L.V. Prasad directed Meena Kumari- Raj Kapoor- Shyama starrer ‘Sharada’ – written as ‘Shaarda’ by Atulji in the ‘List-of songs-moviewise’. It is mentioned as ‘Sharada’ in the filmography of Meena Kumari (a rule in English grammar says that proper nouns can be written with any spelling, specially there is no right or wrong spellings as far as Indian words are concerned).

The movie had ten songs with “Raghupati Raaghav Raaja Ram” being a multi-part or multi-version song. Atulji posted the first song from this movie in 2009 – “Lehraaye Jiya Balkhaaye Jiya”   a song sung by Asha Bhonsle and picturised on Shyama. And Atul ji opened that post with these lines.

I thought that I had posted songs from “Sharada” in the past. It turns out that I was confusing “Sharada” with “Sadhana”. Yes, those days we had movies with names like “Sharada”, “Sadhana”, “Kalpana” etc which were also the names of some well-known actresses. Incidentally, the actress with the same name was nowhere to be found in these movies.

The next song to posted on the blog was “Chaahe Zindagi Se Kitna Bhi Bhaag Re“. This was a philosophical song and in his write up with the song Atul ji has mentioned that he was surprised about the company that Raj Kapoor had in this movie namely Meena Kumari heroine, Rajinder Krishan as lyricist and C Ramachandra for music. There have been two more songs since then “Jap Jap Jap Jap Jap Re” and “Raghupati Raaghav Raaja Ram” . This means that it is exactly two years since the last song from the movie was posted.

It is a known fact that Ramchandra Chitalkar mostly used Lata Mangeshkar for his requirements of female voice. But recently I gained knowledge that he has used other singers too. Last month there was this meet of RMIM in Bangalore and at the invitation of our Gajendra Khanna ji I attended it primarily because the focus was to be on C Ramachandra on his birth centenary year. This was a meet of like-minded music aficionados from all parts of India. I felt like a trivial creature in the midst of people who boasted of knowledge about Chitalkar. The feeling of triviality was further compounded when I heard about how people were passionate about their collections of vinyl records, pamphlets of movies, articles about films etc. (A detailed report on the meet is awaited from the master of ceremonies of that event – Gajendra Khanna ji). It was there, at the meet, that I learnt that he has used other female singers too.

Today’s song has Chaandbala, Shamshad Begum and Asha Bhonsle as singers. The song is a stage song. It has Anita Guha playing a dominating wife to a timid husband. There is Agha peeping from behind the sidelines. I would love to know who is the artist – the one lip syncing the lines about the “Lala being a Joru Ka Ghulam”- for whom Asha Bhonsle has given her voice. I would love to know who is playing the timid husband.

I am sure all the regular followers of the blog would have guessed where I am headed. Why I have chosen this particular song and music director. This is my humble gift to the Mahaan fan of C. Ramchandra in our midst.

On the occasion of our Guruji’s birthday let us wish him lots of fun and joy, music and entertainment. I thank the Almighty that he is with us for guiding us through this musical journey of ours, and pray that this journey together continues on and on and . . .

Wish you a very happy Birthday, Guru ji

P.S: please throw some light on the singers of this song specially Chandbala.

Song – Bhaagwaan Zara Dheere Bol (Sharada) (1957) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Shamshad Begum, Chaandbala, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – C Ramchandra

Lyrics

ye subah subah kya karte aap
bhaagwaan geeta ka jaap
kyon re nikhattu
bhaade ke tattu
aur nahi koi tujhko kaam
jab dekho ye pustak lekar
japta hai tu ram naam 
ari bhaagwaan
naam ram ka lena to koi paap nahi hai
paki pakai dene wala
ghar me koi tera bap nahi hai

bhaagwaan zara dheere bol
ari bhaagwaan zara dheere bol
kya mai ooncha bol rahi hoon
baat baat me zehar na ghol 
main to amrit ghol rahi hoon
ye amrit hai to ja la de ek zahar ka pyala
ye amrit hai to ja la de ek zahar ka pyala
arre main nahin vidhva hone wali tere kahe se lala
main nahin vidhva hone wali tere kahe se lala
bol ko pehle apne tol
main to moti rol rahi hoon
bhagwaan zara dheere bol
kya mai ooncha bol rahi hoon

kyon bhai lala sundar lala
kaho aajkal kya hai haal
biwi ke haathon bezaar
mar gaye jeete ji hum yaar
chup baithun to wo naraaz
bol padoon to sataynash 
yaar kahi se la de mujhko
tola bhar affyum
sukh saans miley jo chhoote
ye htayaari joon 

dekh lo ye joru ka ghulam dekh lo
dekh lo ye joru ka ghulam dekh lo
mardon ko karey badnam dekh lo
mardon ko karey badnam dekh lo
dekh lo ye joru ka ghulam dekh lo
dekh lo ye joru ka ghulam dekh lo

aaurat se ye maar khaaye
haath utha na paaye
aaurat se ye maar khaaye
haath utha na paaye
to bolo bhaiya kaahe duniya me tum aaye
to bolo bhaiya kaahe duniya me tum aaye

dekhna ho to ye bhola ram dekh lo
dekhna ho to ye bhola ram dekh lo
mardon ko karey badnam dekh lo
dekh lo ye joru ka ghulam dekh lo

are tu hovat bhai kaahe udaas
jab kah hi gaye kavi tulsidas
par lalle ki maa ne bhaiya
padhi nhai ramayan
padhi jo hoti kaahe mere
peechhe padti daayan

to suno bataaun ek tarqeeb
ho jaaoge dang
hing lagey na fitkari
aur chokha aaye rang

kyon re nikhattu
bhaade ke tattu
ho tera satyanash
bol ye tere munh se kaisi
aaj aa rahi baas
hum to aaj chadhaa ke aaye
pee ke aur pila ke aaye
arre bol kahaan se pee ke aaya
ye na samjhna chori ki hai
tere baba ke sang pi hai
leta hai mere baap ka naam 
tera baba badaa sharaabi
mera baba
haan
tera baba badaa kabaabi
mera baba
haan
tera baba
mera baba
tera baba
tera baba
tera baba tera baba
tera baba tera baba

kya ho gaya in ko haaye ram
badal gaye din bhagwaan

bol tu dheere bolegi
bolungi
bol tu dheere bolegi
haan bolungi
zahar kabhi phir gholegi
na na amrit gholungi

kshama karo mere swami mujhko
kshama karo mere swami mujhko
bol ko pehle tolungi
sada hi moti rolungi
sada hi dheere bolungi
haan sada hi dheere bolungi
sada hi dheere bolungi
haan sada hi dheere bolungi

———————————————————-

ये सुबह सुबह क्या करते आप
भागवान गीत का जाप
क्यों रे निखट्टू
भाड़े के टट्टू
और नहीं कोई तुझको काम
जब देखो ये पुस्तक लेकर
जपता है तू राम नाम
अरी भागवान
नाम राम का लेना कोई पाप नहीं है
पकी पकाई देने वाला
घर में कोई तेरा बाप नहीं है

भागवान ज़रा धीरे बोल
अरी भागवान ज़रा धीरे बोल
क्या मैं ऊंचा बोल रही हूँ
बात बात में जहर ना घोल
मैं तो अमृत घोल रही हूँ
ये अमृत है तो जा ला दे एक जहर का प्याला
ये अमृत है तो जा ला दे एक जहर का प्याला
अरे मैं नहीं विधवा होने वाली तेरे कहे से लाला
मैं नहीं विधवा होने वाली तेरे कहे से लाला
बोल को अपने पहले तोल
मैं तो मोती रोल रही हूँ
भागवान ज़रा धीरे बोल
क्या मैं ऊंचा बोल रही हूँ

क्यों भई सुंदर लाला
कहो आज कल क्या है हाल
बीवी के हाथों बेज़ार
मर गए जीते जी हम यार
चुप बैठूँ तो वो नाराज़
बोल पड़ूँ तो सत्यानास
यार कहीं से ला दे मुझको
तोला भर अफफ़्यूम
सुख सांस मिले तो छूटे
ये हत्यारी जून

देख लो ये जोरू का ग़ुलाम देख लो
देख लो ये जोरू का ग़ुलाम देख लो
मर्दों को करे बदनाम देख लो
मर्दों को करे बदनाम देख लो
देख लो ये जोरू का ग़ुलाम देख लो
देख लो ये जोरू का ग़ुलाम देख लो

औरत से ये मार खाये
हाथ उठा नहीं पाये
औरत से ये मार खाये
हाथ उठा नहीं पाये
तो बोलो भैया काहे दुनिया में तुम आए
तो बोलो भैया काहे दुनिया में तुम आए

देखना हो तो ये भोला राम देख लो
देखना हो तो ये भोला राम देख लो
मर्दों को करे बदनाम देख लो
देख लो ये जोरू का ग़ुलाम देख लो

अरे तू होवार भाई काहे उदास
जब कह ही गए कवि तुलसीदास
पर लल्ले की माँ ने भैया
पढ़ी नहीं रामायण
पढ़ती जो होती काहे मेरे
पीछे पड़ती डायन

क्यों रे निखट्टू
भाड़े के टट्टू
हो तेरा सत्यानास
बोल ये तेरे मुंह से कैसी
आज आ रही बास
हम तो आज चढ़ा के आए
पी के और पिला के आए
अरे बोल कहाँ से पी के आया
ये ना समझना चोरी की है
तेरे बाबा के संग पी है
लेता है मेरे बाप का नाम
तेरा बाबा बड़ा शराबी
मेरा बाबा
हाँ
तेरा बाबा बड़ा कबाबी
मेरा बाबा
हाँ
तेरा बाबा
मेरा बाबा
तेरा बाबा
तेरा बाबा
तेरा बाबा तेरा बाबा
तेरा बाबा तेरा बाबा

क्या हो गया इनको हाए राम
बादल गए दिन भागवान

बोल तू धीरे बोलेगी
बोलुंगी
बोल तू धीरे बोलेगी
हाँ बोलुंगी
जहर कभी फिर घोलेगी
ना ना अमृत घोलुंगी

क्षमा करो मेरे स्वामी मुझको
क्षमा करो मेरे स्वामी मुझको
बोल को पहले टोलुंगी
सदा ही मोती रोलुंगी
सदा ही धीरे बोलुंगी
हाँ सदा ही धीरे बोलुंगी
सदा ही धीरे बोलुंगी
हाँ सदा ही धीरे बोलुंगी

We in this blog had two new resolutions and I had decided to stick to them as long as I can. One was to introduce a “new” movie daily and another was to to close the account of another movie by YIPPying it.

We are in may 2017, and both these resolutions have finally seen breaks. For instance, there was no YIPPEE song on 13 may 2017, a day that had only one post, a post that introduced a “new” song. The string on YIPPEE posts was in fact broken a few days earlier on 6 may itself when I posted a song that I thought was YIPPYing its movie but I was wrong. The “new” post string had got broken a while ago.

However, unlike most new year resolutions, these new year resolutions were not broken due to laziness or lack of motivation, rather than for more pressing reasons like inability to spend enough time near the computer, which is essential for posting article in the blog. So, we can be proud that we achieved quite a lot in the blog thanks to these resolutions.

One resolution (unstated) still continues, and it is the resolution that there would be no dot days in the blog this year.

Over one hour of Today (15 may 2017) is still remaining, so I will use this time to post a YIPPEE song for the day. This song is the sixth and final song from “Waaris”(1969). This movie was directed by Ramanna for Vasu Films, Madras. The movie had Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Sudesh Sharma, Nazima, Manorama, Daisy Irani, Sunder, Prem Chopra, Aruna Irani, Ashokan, David Abraham, Mehmood, Kamini Kaushal, Sachin etc in it.

This sith and final song from “Waaris”(1969) is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a faux “jhaad phoonk” song where Hema Malini playacts as a woman who is under the spell of a buri aatmaa which Mehmood plays the hilarious looking witch doctor trying to rid Hema Malini of the buri aatmaa. Lots of other characters of the movie are also visible in the picturisation. This song is a diversion song as well. This song keeps people pre occupied and that gives Jeetendra as opportunity to climp up to the building where all this action is taking place.

With this song, “Waaris”(1969) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Song – Kaun Hai Wo Kaun Mujhe Jis Ne Jagaaya (Waaris) (1969) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – RD Burman

“Reporter Raju”(1962) was a Wadia Brothers Productions/ Basant Pictures production movie. It was produced by Homi Wadia and directed by Dwarka Khosla. The movie had Feroze Khan, Chitra, Jeevankala, Indira, Baby Vidya Rani, Manorama, Ratnamala, Sulochana Chatterjee, Shah Agha, Sunder, Majnoo, Shakeel Noomani, Raj Adeeb, Mintobai, Gani, Mohammed Ali, Geeta, Paro, Julian, B.M.Vyas, Anthny, Bismilla, Mithoo miyaa etc in it.

The movie receives a favourable review from Memsaab.

This movie had five songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Reporter Raju”(1962) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur, Rafi and chorus. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Mohinder. This is the most fun filled on all the songs in the movie. From the details provided in Memsaab’s review, we gather that this qawwali is performed by Kohinoor Theater Company led by Dewan Sunderlal (Sunder) and his beloved Gopi (Jeewankala). The lyrics of the qawwaali tell us of the situation when women would rule. If that happened then it is the males who would be required to remain behind veil. Women would go to office and males would be left holding up crying kids.

The lyricist, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan has let his hair down and he has come up with some wonderfully hilarious scenario for hapless males in a women ruled world. 🙂 The song is an aural and visual delight !

PS-My thanks to Prakashchandra for identifying several actors in the picturisation.

With this fantastic gem of a qawwwali, “Reporter Raju”(1962) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I am not one who can sit through a Hindi movie for its full duration now a days. Moreover, I cannot even bear to watch most new movies. There are exceptions of course. For instance, I liked “Lage Raho Munna Bhai”, “PK”, etc. I in fact have discussed a few songs from these movies in the blog as well, where I mentioned that I liked these movies.

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.

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.
