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

Another request from Arvinder ji.  And another delightful song that I must thank him for introducing to me. I heard this song for the first time after Arvinder ji’s persistent requests finally made me pull this song out and listen to it. It was love at first hear 😉 (ah, the phrase being used again today). And yes, another theme being used again today is the ‘keep your hearts safe’ message. In an earlier post today, Atul ji has uploaded the Shamshad Begum song – “Meri Nazren Pockekmaar Sambhaalo Dil Ke Pocket Ko”. And in this song, the lady is announcing that

आई हूँ रंग ले के मैं बहार के
रखना काबू
दिल रखना काबू

The film is ‘Naag Padmini’ from 1957. This is a historical film, produced by Mulkhraj Bhakri under the banner of Golden Movies, Bombay and is directed by Lekhraj Bhakri. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Shakeela, Hiralal, Maruti, Tiwari, Niranjan Sharma, Kammo, Krishna Kumari, Kanchanmala, Tun Tun, Daljeet, Sadiq, amongst others. There are 8 songs in this film, all coming from the pen of Prem Dhawan. Music is by Sanmukh Babu.

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

When the previous instalment in this series was posted, I had started it with the word ‘Goodness’. It was because that post came in after a gap of 5 months from the one previous to it. Now I am thinking what word to use – this instalment is now coming in almost 17 (seventeen) months from the previous post. Maybe you would say, the less said the better. 😉

‘प’

“पढ़े लिखे कुछ खास नहीं पर नाम है मिस्टर वाई”

This song has been waiting in the wings, since the day I posted “Thandi Thandi Hawaa Mujhe Chhede Yahaan”, as part of the ‘Missing Films of 1960s’ series. At first I had shortlisted this Rafi Sb’s song for that post. But then on second thoughts, I changed it and saved this song for the Rafi Sb series. Good choice, I think. This song fits in well on the ‘प’ letter position.

The Voice of Mukesh #69
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film industry has seen many stars, who, by logical analysis, should not have been. Let me mention the names of four male singers, who have become legends now – Saigal Sb, Rafi Sb, Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Besides all four of them being singers who have rendered songs that have become timeless in their essence and popularity, there is one more common thread that runs through their lives. None of these four had any recognized formal training in classical music. And yet, their voice, their renditions, the emotional alchemy contained therein – has an element of something that can only be attributed to providence.

‘ढ’
“ढोलक को खूब बजाओ, जानी को खूब नचाओ”

Today’s alphabet letter has been the most elusive to locate. Statistically, ‘ढ’ is one of the lesser used letters, and so, the songs starting with words starting with this alphabet are comparatively fewer in number. As I was poring through the song lists from various sources, the search always ended with just three songs starting with ‘ढ’. And incidentally, these three are well known songs, and are already posted on our blog. The search through the lists, whether from Geet Kosh or other sources, is sometimes a problem, because at times a leading couplet appears in the beginning, and ‘mukhda’ of the song appears in the later part of the title. Searching for such words in the title is a difficult and tedious task. But after some extra effort I was able to identify this song. Then I went back into the Geet Kosh again, and confirmed that the ‘mukhda’ of this song indeed starts with the word ‘ढोलक’.

The strongest image that remains in the mind is that of the film director Sinha Saab, a bedraggled man in tattered garments, with ruffled grey hair and white beard, a leathery skin on face lined with wrinkles that appeared much before time – a young person who aged too rapidly for his years. With help of a walking stick, he climbs down from the shadows of the scaffolding where he has perched himself, watching the action on the floor below – the same floor where once, not too long ago, he was the ringmaster, and everyone bowed to him. Not anymore. Today, he is a ‘has been’, who lost his touch of Midas, and the same world that once clamored to him, has quickly forgotten and relegated him, literally, to the garbage heap.

With difficulty, he negotiates the narrow ladders that lead down from the scaffolding to the studio floor. Once there, he shuffles to the chair, his chair, in the days of glory; the chair with the word ‘Director’ written across its back. He sits. And then he is immobile, never to get up again, never to wake up.

When the crowd of workers return after lunch, everyone is shocked to see this grimy old man, sitting motionless in the director’s chair. Everyone is known to him, but today no one recognizes him, now that he is gone. None, save one light-boy, who remembers and recognizes his earliest benefactor – Sinha Saab.

The power of these images and these sequences now have a cult following, not only in India but worldwide. Remembering Guru Dutt on his seventy seventh anniversary. (9th July)

Today’s song is from the film Subah ka tara-54, a Rajkamal film by V. Shantaram.

V.Shantaram is one of the most respected Directors and Producers of India. His life story is truly a “Rags to Riches” story. Born at Kolhapur, V. Shantaram ( 18-11-1901 to 27-10-1990), spent his childhood doing hard work for survival. He could hardly study upto Matriculation. From work in a Cinema Theatre to work in a Drama company to work in a Cinema company- he did considrable amount of menial jobs in the film industry in his early days..

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘घ’
“घर से तो कट चुका पत्ता”

As I search for songs of Rafi Sb, I continue to find unheard and obscure gems, that make one wonder – where have these songs been hiding so far. And more importantly, continue to marvel more and more at the versatility of Rafi Sb’s voice and the depth of his emotional connect with the intent of the song. When I picked out this song and heard it, the one word that flashed in my mind was ‘free spirit’. This song is meant to be a freewheeling song of a wanderer, who has no roots. As the song progresses, the mind catches the attention of the feeling of lightness one experiences, as the sounds of Rafi Sb’s voice sink into the mind. The sound is coming almost as if from the skies, light as the wind. It carries a plucky feeling of a carefree heart that is joyous in its rootlessness. I am so enchanted by the emotional expression in this song that today I actually went ahead and created a new category – ‘Free Spirit Song’.
