In one recent article of Sudhir jee on his “This week that year” series, he wondered why my spree of posting one “Anmol Ghadi”(1946) song everyday had a break of one day and subsequently the final song got covered after break of one day. I do not have any recollections of those days, but I am certain about the fact that the concept of YIPPying all the songs of a movie had not entered my mind by that time. My attempt was to cover all songs that I could come across. I may have missed stumbling against the one remaining Anmol Ghadi song on that day whereas I could locate it the next day. That is the only plausible explanation that I can think of.

I find that my first interaction with Pradeep Raghunathan took place on 22 march 2011. We have had some very intersting online chats together, some lasting for one hour and more.

I find some interesting details from the online chat logs. For instance, During our discussion on 15 april 2011, I mentioned that the blog had songs from 1500 movies, and that I expect the blog to one day reach 10000 songs. 🙂 Today we have songs from over 4000 movies and we are inching towards 16000 songs mark. 🙂

During our chat on 16 december 2011, he suggested providing serial number with each song. I told him that I do it internally in my excel sheet, access table etc. Today his suggestion is being followed in the blog starting from january 2017.

During these discussions, he discussed tagging of songs on IPOD. With time he started concentrating on those movies where all songs were covered. He relied upon online sources to guess if all songs were covered. I was keeping track of songs in movies by relying on online sources. I did not have HFGK with me at that time.

I can see from our early morning interactions at 1 AM on 22 november 2012 between two sleepless souls that the blog had 141 movies YIPPEED (though the term was not coined at that time) by 22 november 2012 whereas Pradep Raghunathan had tagged all songs for 132 of them. So the gap was only 9 movies for his at that time !

From july 2014 onwards, I have access to HFGK, thanks to the generosity of our blog stalwarts M/s Arunkumar Deshmukh and Sudhir Jee, and from then onwards YIPPYIng movies in the blog has become a planned activity rather than an incidental or chance activity.

Pradeep Raghunathan was doing tagging of songs of YIPPEED movies on his own. He was subsequenly joined by Khyati Bhatt, Aparna H M and Avinash Scrapwala in this tagging of songs mission.

It gives me some comfort that today on 26 september 2020 the blog has 1221 movies YIPPEED whereas the YIPPEE team of Pradeep Raghunathan and colleagues (Khyati Bhatt, Aparna H M and Avinash Scrapwala) are at just over 1000 movies mark. I need to get my act together and start YIPPYing some more movies seeing that team YIPPEE is threatening to catch up with the YIPPEED movies in the blog.

This year 2020 has seen 41 movies getting YIPPEED. THe record was set up in 2013 whe as many as 202 movies got YIPPEED.

Now a days we keep track of movies in the blog and we know which movies are nearing YIPPEEhood. The challenge often lies in locating the balance song or songs which are often rare songs.

“Baansuriya” (1949) was directed by Ram Narayan Dave for Nigaristaan Films, Bombay. The movie had Ram Singh, Geeta Bali, Om Prakash, Randhir, Kuldip, Sofia, Gulab, Uma Dutt, Shanti Madhok, Ramesh Thakur, Raj Pal, Sham Lal, Madan Kapoor, Raja Salim, Ram Avtaar etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the songs covered so far :-

Blog song number Song Date of posting
8745 Na shama ka qusoor na parwaane ka qusoor 22 September 2013
13190 Chaahe chori chori aao chaahe chhu chhup aao 25 April 2017
13298 Ye duniya kehti hai koi fariyaad na karey 1 June 2017
13538 Jo kar ke gaye barbaad hamen aati hai unki yaad hamen 20 August 2017
15764 Teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi 31 July 2020
15834 Dil tod ke jaane waale o 26 August 2020
15839 Tere saamne hum aansoo bahaayenge 27 August 2020

It can be seen that the movie was lying undiscussed in the blog since 2017. The year 2020 saw as many as three songs getting discussed in a matter of one month. Now only one song is left to be covered. That song is very much available.

Here is this eighth and final song from “Baansuriya” (1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

With this song, all the songs of “Baansuriya” (1949) get covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Aa ja aa ja ke jiya mora taras gaya (Baansuriya)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics- Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Dancing has been an integral part of Indian cinema even during the era of silent films. In most of the silent films, dancing was mostly confined to courtesans which the society saw it in a negative way. It was only after sound films came in 1931, the film makers started looking for actors who could also sing and dance. So, multi-tasking was the buzz word for the main actors during the early period of sound films. Some actors like Mumtaz Ali, Sunita Devi, Shahzaadi etc were known for their dancing skills though they also acted in supporting roles. Even some lead actors like Molina Devi of New Theatres (remember her dance in ‘Kaarwaan-e-Hayat’, 1935), Radha Rani of Bombay, Mumtaz Shanti and even Leela Chitnis in the film ‘Kanchan’ (1941) were required to dance as part of their roles. By the start of 1940, Sadhana Bose from Bengal joined Hindi films as a classical dancer in the lead/supporting roles.

A few trained dancers like Sitara Devi and Auzurie joined the Hindi film industry by the middle of 1930s. While Sitara Devi was trained both in Hindustani classical and western dances, Auzurie was trained in folk and western dances. Unfortunately, many of their films of 1930s with dances are not available for viewing. While Sitara Devi graduated to heroine and side heroine’s roles in the 1940s, Auzurie continued to work in the films mainly as a dancer.

The success of Sitara Devi and Auzurie in Hindi films seems to have prompted the film makers to have dance song numbers in most of the Hindi films in mid-40s onward. This gave the more scope for trained dancers to join Hindi films. One of the prominent dancers to join Hindi films was Cuckoo in mid-40s. She set a trend in Hindi films by her dance numbers to have at least one dance sequence in most of the Hindi films in the second half of the 1940s and thereafter. The important of her dance numbers in Hindi films can be gauged by the fact that during 1944-50, she danced in as many as 74 films.

With Cuckoo’s popularity as a dancer, some more prominent dancers joined Hindi films like Kumkum in 1947, Mohana Cabral in 1948, Roopmala in 1949, Sheila Vaz, Helen and Padmini, all in 1951. By the middle of 1950s, Hindi film makers had a good number of dancers to choose. One of the dancers who joined Hindi films in the second half of 1950s was Minu Mumtaz. Based on the book, ‘Mehmood – A Man of Many Moods’ (2005) by Hanif Zaveri and ‘The Incredibly Beautiful Minoo Mumtaz’ in YouTube Channel, ‘Tabassum Talkies’, I have attempted a short write-up covering the life story of Minu Mumtaz below:

Minu Mumtaz (real name: Malikunnisa Ali) was born on April 26, 1942 in Mumbai. She was one of the eight siblings of Mumtaz Ali, the popular dancer, singer and supporting actor of the Bombay Talkies in the 1930s and 40s. Mehmood, the comedian was her elder brother and the actor Anwar Ali was her youngest brother.

The family which was enjoying from the money and fame of Mumtaz Ali in the 40s, drifted to poverty due to his excessive drinking. He lost all money, houses, cars and even household items just to satisfy his addiction to drinking. With this, the responsibility of looking after a large family fell on Mehmood, being the eldest son. But he was not getting enough money from his odd jobs to look after a large family. It was Minu Mumtaz who thought of working in the films. She had learnt dance from her father and used to perform dances in her father’s dance troupe, ‘Mumtaz Ali Nites’. But her mother was against any one working in the films as she felt that it was the films which made her husband, Mumtaz Ali the victim of drinking habit.

But the financial condition in the family had become extremely precarious. A time came when it was difficult to manage even two-time meals. One day Minu Mumtaz along with her elder sister, Khairunnisa met Nanubhai Vakil for work in his film who was directing ‘Sakhi Hatim’ (1955. When he came to know that she was the daughter of Mumtaz Ali, he gave her a small role in the film. This was the beginning of her filmy career. She got more films with her dance numbers. With her song in ‘CID’ (1956), she got recognition as a good dancer. Thereafter, there was no looking back for Minu Mumtaz as she got many films, enhancing her status from a dancer to character actors, side roles with the heroines and in a few films even as a heroine.

During the shooting of her film ‘Bandhan’ (1956), Meena Kumari, who had become the sister-in-law of Mehmood, having married her younger sister, Madhu in 1952, gave Malikannisa the screen name ‘Meenu’ to rhyme with Meena. Because of the efforts of Minu Mumtaz, the family got to live in a comfortable position. Mehmood used to say that Minu Mumtaz is not her younger sister but she is like an elder brother to him. Of course, after his box office hit film, ‘Chhoti Bahen’ (1959), Mehmood’s luck also turned for the better in his filmy career to become a star comedian and later the producer and the director.

Minu Mumtaz married S. A. Akbar in 1963 who had directed Mehmood’s ‘Chhote Nawab’ (1961). The family first shifted to Kuwait and thereafter moved to Canada where she resides now.

I have gone through Minu Mumtaz’s filmography as well as songs picturised on her which throws some interesting information. During her active years of filmy career, Minu Mumtaz worked in around 75+ films. Almost equal numbers of songs have been picturised on her. In some films, she had more than one song to her credit. She was in the lead roles in ‘Black Cat’ (1959) and ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Baat’ (1959).

Johny Walker was like a member of the entire Mumtaz Ali family and he was consulted on important family matters. The marriage of Mehmood with Madhu was decided fixed in Johny Walker’s house. I feel that Johny Walker has been instrumental in pushing up her filmy career at least in the initial stages. This is borne out by the fact that Minu Mumtaz worked with Johny Walker in as many as 23 films of which in most of these films, she paired with him. Her brother, Mehmood had worked with her in 14 films of which 9 films pertain to the years when Mehmood had not firmly established in Hindi film industry.

As I said earlier, around 75 songs have been picturised on Minu Mumtaz. Our Blog has covered as many as 69 songs. I have given below links of a few of her popular songs for ready reference:

main hoon Johny badaa toofaani – ‘Maai Baap’ (1957)

boojh mera kya naam re – ‘C.I.D.’ (1956)

aji chale aao aji chale aao – ‘Halaaku’ (1956)

meri jaan meri jaan pyaar kisi se – ‘Yahudi’ (1958)

sitaare raah takte hain – ‘Black Cat’ (1959)

jaanu jaanu re chhupke kaun aaya – ‘Insaan Jaag Utha’ (1959)

saaqiyaa aaj mujhe neend nahin aayegi – ‘Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam’ (1962)

thodi der ke liye mere ho jaao – ‘Akeli Mat Jaiyyo’ (1963)

On the basis of the listing of Minu Mumtaz songs on the Blog as well as the video clips of her songs available on the video sharing platforms, I have been able to identify six songs picturised on Minu Mumtaz for which video clips are available and are yet to be covered in the Blog. I present one of those six songs from the film ‘Jagga Daaku’ (1959). The song is ‘teri kasam tujhko sanam pyaar kiya re’ sung by Geeta Dutt. Obviously, the song is picurised as a dance by Minu Mumtaz. Jairaj is present in the entire duration of the song. The song is written by B D Mishra which is set to music by S N Tripathi.

Unfortunately, the picture as well as audio qualities of the song on video clip are not good. At two places, there are breaks in the song. So, I have based the lyrics on the audio clip which has a better-quality audio.

As happened with me when I heard the song, I am sure that most of the senior visitors to the Blog would recall that they had heard this song long back but did not relate to the film.

This is the second song to appear in the Blog out of 6 songs in ‘Jagga Daaku’ (1959).

“Baawra”(1950) was directed by G Rakesh for Shree Durga Pictures, Bombay. It had Ra Kapoor, Nimmi, Lalita Pawar, K n ingh, Hiralal, Sundar, Ratan Kumar etc in it.

This movie had ten songs in it. Four songs (including one multiple version song) have been covered in the past.

Here is another song from “Baawra”(1950). HFGK is silent about the singer(s) of this song. Listening to the song, it is clear that the song is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Geeta Rai) and chorus. Raghupat Rai is the lyricist. Music is composed by Krishn Dayal B Sc.

When blog ten year challenge series was started in the blog the last year then the seris hoped to take up songs of those movies that were covered in the blog ten years ago and which were not YIPPEED despite the passage of one decade. That way, this series was also an aid in informing us about movies which offer us opportunities not only for Blog ten year challenge, but also subsequently about their potential YIPPiehood.

The project YIPPEE itself seems to have gone on a backburner, as is the project of seeing artists through to their centuries in the blog. The other project of discussing songs on th occasion of anniversaries of artists is somehow being maintained, thanks to the contributions of a few enthusiastic contributors.

Their enthusiasm often rubs off on me as well, and I too try and make some efforts, which have seen some progress in these projects. Three YIPPEED movie in August 2020 and one artist reaching century mark may not amount to much, but it still shows some progress.

To help me to quickly identify which movies and which artists to cover, I have build up some aids.

To help me identify movies nearing YIPPEEdom, Whenever a movie had two songs left to be covered, I mark movies them down in a earmarked excel sheetWhenever a movie had two songs left to be covered. I also have a list of songs of artists, and I know at a glance which artists are nearing their centuries.

When a song of “Baansuriya”(1949) was discussed yesterday (26 august 2020, it gave me the information that six out of eight songs from the movie had got covered. So, “Baansuriya”(1949) joined the shortlist of YIPPiable moviesyesterday.

When I checked up the availability of the remaining two songs, I found that they were available. So this movie can be YIPPEED easily.

Here is the seventh and penultimate song from “Baansuriya”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy). Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Tere saamne hum aansoo bahaayenge (Baansuriya)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

laakh hans ke chalo
laakh bach ke chalo
chhup chhup ke raho
tum milo na milo
gali teri ke phere lagaayenge
lagayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

tum badal jaao lekin na badlenge hum
maar daalega teri judaai ka gham
tere dar pe ye jaan ganwaayenge
gawayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

‘Teesri Gali’ (1958) was produced by C D Sadarangani under the banner of Radiant Movies and was directed by Kundan Kumar. The film’s actors included Shyama and Abhi Bhattacharya in the lead role with Prem Adib, Gope, Kammo, Leela Mishra, Bhagwan Sinha, Neeru, C S Dubey, Ramlal, Panchotiya, Mohan Choti etc in subsidiary roles. I have no idea about the story of the film. However, going by a few lobby photographs, the film appears to belong to a mixed genre of crime and romance. It also appears that contrary to the general expectation, Abhi Bhattacharya had a played a different type of the role in the film.

It was director Kundan Kumar’s second film as a director, his debut film in the same capacity being ‘Neel Mani’ (1957). However, he became a prominent director of Bhojpuri films in the 1960s when he was roped in by Nazir Hussain to direct the first Bhojpuri film, ‘Ganga Maiya Tohre Piyari Chandhaibo’ (1962) which became a blockbuster on the box office collections. Thereafter, he directed other Bhojpuri films like ‘Laagi Naahi Chhute Rama’ (1963), ‘Ganga’ (1965), “Bhouji’ (1965). ‘Loha Singh’ (1966) etc.

By the end of 1960s, when Bhojpuri films industry experienced a slump, Kundan Kumar reverted to Hindi films and became producer-director of the films like ‘Aulaad (1968), ‘Pardesi’ (1970), ‘Anokhi Ada’ (1973) and ‘Aaj Ka Mahatma’ (1976). His life was cut short by the untimely death on February 28, 1979.

As the years passed, ‘Teesri Gali’ (1958) seems to have become an obscure film. I would have loved to watch this film after viewing the photographs of Abhi Bhattacharya’s unusual appearance in the film and Kammo’s dances. Unfortunately, the VCD/DVD of the film is not available. This film will, however, be remembered for an unusual incidence while in the making which was described by Tabassum in T V Programme ‘Tabassum Talkies’ as under:

There was a scene in the film ‘Teesri Gali’ (1958) in which Gope was to enact a scene in which he gets a heart attack and dies. His acting of getting a heart attack and dying looked so real that when the scene was over, all the members of the unit of the film clapped. When Gope did not get up after the end of the clapping, some unit members went near him and were shocked to find that he had really died of a heart attack.

‘Teesri Gali’ (1958) had 6 songs of which 5 songs were available on a video sharing platform. I could trace the mp3 clip of the missing 6th song of the film and had uploaded the video of the same last year. I was under the impression that I had already covered the ‘missing’ song in the Blog. When I found that of the 3 songs of the film covered in the Blog, the ‘missing’ song not one of them. So, here is that song, ‘jaan gaye chori tumhaari zaalima’ from the film which is rendered by Geeta Dutt. The song is written by Anjum Jaipuri which is set to music by Chitragupt.

In the absence of the video clip, I can only make a guess based on the lyrics of the song as well as some photographs of the scenes from the film that are available on the internet. And my guess is that it is a club song picturised on Kammo whose singing is directed towards Abhi Bhattachraya. Kammo has been known to be a good dancer and fits well for a club song.

Enjoy this foot tapping fun song. By the way, the remaining two songs of the film yet to be covered in the Blog are also fun songs rendered by Geeta Dutt.

I feel very sorry for Chitragupt that despite all the six songs in the film being very melodious, the film failed in the box office. The resultant impact was that all these songs remained obscure until the video sharing platforms came into prominence.

Song-Jaan gaye chori tumhaari zaalimaa (Teesri Gali)(1958) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Anjum Jaipuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

jaan gaye chori tumhaari zaalima
dil ko churaane tum aate ho yahaan aan
jaan gaye chori
jaan gaye chori tumhaari zaalima

loot ke chala hai koi eene ka saamaan

Today’s song is from the film Ek tha Ladka-1951. As per my plan, I am selecting randomly songs from the 50’s decade films, to discuss here.

Har Mandir Singh ‘Hamraz’ji has published a Film Index, listing films from Silent and Talkie films, since 1913 to 2012. Sometimes, I spend my free time to note down oddities, found in the film titles. Today, I went through it, to know more about film titles, starting with the word “Ek”. To my surprise, there are as many as 206 films whose titles start with “EK “. 32 films start with “Ek aur..”, 7 films with ‘Ek tha” and 3 films with ” Ek thi “. Title of today’s film ‘Ek tha Ladka’ sounds like the counterpart of the film ‘Ek thi Ladki’ !

The film was made by Chitra Mahal, produced and directed by Roop Sanware. From a search with available data, there seems to be only this released film on his name as Director. There were 2 Music Directors,namely Murari Sharma, who composed 6 songs and Rajhans Kataria, who composed 3 songs. One song is not credited to anyone. There were a total of 10 songs. 4 songs are already discussed and today’s song is fifth song, composed by Rajhans Kataria.

I am sure you must have heard the names of Music Directors Fakir Muhammed, Shambhoo, Dattaraj, Brij Bhushan, Raj Ratan, Ronodev Mukherjee, Kamalkant, Vishnu Khanna, Ajay, Baboo Singh or Vijay Honavar ? Your blank face says, you have never heard their names.

I am not asking you names of Music Directors from the 1930s or 1940s. All these were composers in the 1960s. If I ask you about Satyam, Jagdish or Ratandeep-Hemraj, what will you say ?

These were Music Directors in the 1970s. They composed music for 5 to 15 films each in the 70s.

Can one tell how many composers gave music in Hindi films from 1931 to till today ? It is extremely difficult to make a list of Music Directors. This is because there were many who gave music in just one or two movies. In many cases even the names of the composers are not known. If this is the case of the name itself, getting their Biographies is a distant dream !

Right from 1931 till today, according to Harish Raghuwanshi ji, 3000 Music Directors operated in Hindi film industry. muVyz counted 2088 and it was still counting.Most of these were those who gave music to just one film and disappeared. Still- they all contributed to the HFM legacy. Hardly any serious effort seems to have been made to collect information about at least those who gave music to 5 or more films.

To my knowledge,there are two good books on Music Directors-
1. Dhunon ki Yatra-Pankaj Raag and
2. Film Sangeetkar-Suvarnayugwale- Prof. Yogesh Yadav

There could be some more such books, which I do not know.

The Pankaj Raag book is a solid 800 pages book costing around 1500/- approx. now. This book gives detailed information on 117 Music Directors and Some information on another 137 Music Directors from 1931 to 2000. The book also mentions names and films of another 200 or so composers who did just 1 or 2 films. That makes a total of 454 composers. Prof. Yadav’s book lists short information about 151 composers. Thus we have about 600 composers with some information to talk about. Still, a large number remains without any data.

From time to time, some relative of a forgotten Music Director springs up and gives some information. Sometime back, the daughter of composer/singer K.S.Ragi appeared on Facebook and gave some valuable information on her father. Likewise the son and daughter of composer V.K.Naidu commented on this Blog to give information. Similarly the daughter of Ghantasala came on Facebook and gave some information on Ghantasala’s Hindi work. Same way the nephew of C. Arjun commented on ‘songs of yore’ and clarified some matters.

But this is by Luck. Otherwise many composers are buried under obscurity and anonymity. How many of us have heard the name of Composer Rajhans Kataria ? There was a film “Gandhi Mandir” produced sometime in the last days of the 1940s (probably 1949). It was made by Meera Pictures, produced by Y.D.Shaikh, directed by Roop Sanware and its cast was Nirupa Roy, Pran, Uday Kumar, Ramsingh etc (according to an advertisement copy sent to me by shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji). The music director of this movie was Rajhans Kataria. The name of the film was changed to Afsana(aka Kalakar). This film features in HFGK as an unreleased film. It was not even Censored. However 12 songs were issued on Records by the name “Gandhi mandir” only.

Rajhans Kataria gave music to 2 more films. “Ek tha Ladka”-51 and “Chhoti Duniya”-53. Then he simply vanished. No information whatsoever is available anywhere on him. Similarly the other Music Director- Murari Sharma also gave music to two films only – Nai Zindagi-51 and Ek tha Ladka-51.

The cast of the film was Geeta Bali, Bharat Bhushan, Geeta Nizami, Niloufer, Umesh Sharma, S K Prem, Uma Dutt and many others. From this cast, S K Prem possibly started his career as a Lyricist. His name is mentioned for film Dhruv Kumar-38. Then he became an actor and from 1946 to 1975, he acted in 36 films. Another name of interest is that of Geeta Nizami, a Heroine in the 40’s decade. This was her last film in India, after which she migrated to Pakistan.

The real name of Geeta Nizami was Rashida Begum. She was born in Lahore on 24-6-1926. At the age of 14 only, she was married to Barkat Nizami – uncle of actress Mumtaz Shanti. This person had a knack of discovering talents for films. First he discovered Mumtaz Shanti. He was a businessman to the core. Though Mumtaz Shanti was his niece, he had a contract with her for films. According to that 50% share of her income was to be given to Barkat and 25% to Barkat’s son from his first marriage. The balance was given to Mumtaz Shanti.

However, after her marriage to Wali Saheb, he stopped getting this money. So, he married Geeta and continued the same contract. He used to call it more of a business deal than a marriage. Geeta made her Debut in Shalimar Film’s film Mann ka meet-1944. In her first film Mann ki jeet-44, she acted and had a song and dance. The song was ” More jubna ka dekho ubhar ” sung by Zohrabai,written by Josh Malihabadi and composed by S.K.Pal. The dance Geeta did on this song was very sexy. She was shown emerging from a blooming Lotus and at that time she did such provocative actions that soon the song became the talk of the town. The then Bombay Government,led by Morarji Desai, promptly banned the song, but in the rest of India the song became very popular.

Her second appearance was in Navyug Chitrapat’s propaganda film, ” Panna”-44. She did excellent acting and surprised everyone. In recognition of her brilliant performance, she is perhaps the only artiste of the Hindi films to have been rewarded Rs. 9000 from Government of India.

Famous author Manto says in his book, ‘Dastavej ‘ Vol 5, that after this film, Geeta Nizami left Barkat Nizami, refusing to give him any share of her earnings. He went to the court and his case lingered, meanwhile he migrated to Pakistan also. Geeta Nizami then married several times and was known for that.

Geeta Nizami could not continue as a Heroine in films. She was lead actress in only 7 films. The reason why she did not get more roles as a Heroine was found in a book by a well known author. According to this author, Geeta took a bath only once a week, smelt horrible and her head was full of Lice. No actor was ready to do a close up scene with her. ( I remember another actress of the early 60s- Kalpana, with same reputation. Shammi Kapoor was on record saying that Kalpana smelt very foul as she probably took bath only once a month. He had refused to work again with her in any film, after Professor-62. Even Kalpana’s career was short lived.)

Geeta did just 13 films in India. She acted in Mann ji jeet-44, Panna-44, Gaon ki Gori-45, Sassi Punnu-46, Room No. 9-46, Paro-47, Moti-47, Rehnuma-48, Gajre-48, Karwat-49, Beqasoor-50, Hulchal-51 and finally Ek tha Ladka-51.

Her last film was ‘Ek Tha Ladka’ (1951). After this she migrated to Pakistan. In Pakistan she formed a dance troupe and did shows in various cities of Pakistan. She died on 28-4-2008.

There is no information available from any source, about the film’s story, release date etc. There are hundreds of such films about which we have no information at all.Today’s song is sung by Geeta Roy. The uploader Parag Sankla has said on You Tube that ” this extremely rare song has been recorded from SLBC (Radio Ceylon) by shri Narsing Agnish “. This song is written by Rajesh kumar- a one time Lyricist. The song is very good.


Song-Tum jaate ho to jaao bhale (Ek Thha Ladka)(1951) Singer- Geeta Dutt, Lyricist- Rajesh Kumar, MD- Rajhans Kataria

I have carried an impression in my mind for a long time that in the 1940s, Anil Biswas rarely used full-throated playback singers like Shamshad Begum, Zeenat Begum, Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Munawwar Sultana etc. This is based on my listening many songs composed by Anil Biswas during the last about one decade. To check my ‘hypothesis’, I glanced through all the songs composed by Anil Biswas which have been tagged under his name in our Blog. In addition, I went through a couple of websites on Hindi film songs and my excel-sheets of songs for the period 1931-50, partially taken from HFGK. The main conclusions of my ad-hoc research are as under:

  1. Zeenat Begum and Munawwar Sultana did not sing for Anil Biswas though both of them had shifted to Mumbai sometime in 1944.
  2. Although Shamshad Begum had shifted to Mumbai along with the musical team of Ghulam Haider in 1942, Anil Biswas gave her chance to sing under his music direction for the first time in the film ‘Bhook’ (1947).
  3. Anil Biswas took Zohrabai Ambalewaali for the first time in the film ‘Gramophone Singer’ (1938) followed by ‘Hum Tum Aur Woh’ (1938). After a gap of nearly 9 years, she got a chance to sing for him in ‘Naiyya’ (1947) which happened to be her last film with Anil Biswas as a playback singer.
  4. Ameerbai Karnataki and Anil Biswas started their musical career almost simultaneously in Mumbai during 1935-36 and she sang for him in a couple of films as an actor-singer. But as a playback singer, she got a chance to sing under the music direction of Anil Biswas for the first time in ‘Kismet’ (1943). With the popularity of her songs in this film, Ameerbai Karnataki became one of the topmost playback singers of Hindi films.

Based on the discography of Anil Biswas as a music director, I have attempted to get the reasons as to why he did not utilize or sparingly utilized the singers listed above under his music direction. In my view, there are three main reasons for this.

  1. In most of the films for which Anil Biswas was the music director during 1936-1942, there were actor-singers like Sardar Akhtar, Husn Bano, Sitara Devi, Bibbo, Wahidan Bai, Jyoti, Maya Banerjee, Nalini Jaywant etc who sang for themselves. Whenever, Anil Biswas was in need of additional playback singer, he mostly relied on Rajkumari Dubey.
  1. During 1942-48, Anil Biswas mainly relied on his sister, Parul Ghosh, Hamida Bano, Meena Kapoor and Geeta Roy (later Dutt) as playback singers in addition to actor-singer Suraiya. From 1948 onwards, Lata Mangeshkar became his main playback singer.
  1. It is quite likely that Anil Biswas did not find full-throated singers suitable for singing his musical compositions which were mostly soft melodies.

I am presenting today, a fun song, “Ye Haseenon Ke Mele Albele” sung by Geeta Roy (later Dutt) and Shamshad Begum – a mix of husky and high-throated voices. The song is from the film ‘Bhookh’ (1947). The song is written by Dr Safdar Aah Sitapuri which is set to music by Anil Biswas. This is the first film in which Shamshad Begum sang under the music direction of Anil Biswas. Also, this is the first duet song of Geeta Dutt and Shamshad Begum.

‘Bhookh’ (1947) is the maiden film produced and directed by Dr Safdar Aah Sitapuri. The star cast includes Sheikh Mukhtar and Husna in the lead roles supported by Kanhaiyalal, Agha, Laddan, Narmada Shankar, Abu Baker, Ghulam Hussain, Miss Kiran etc. It is a debut film for Husna and Miss Kiran. From the advertisement of the film, it appears that the film is about tackling the hunger – a theme which had come into the focus of Hindi film industry in the backdrop of Bengal famine during World War II. Films like ‘Neecha Nagar’ (1946) and ’Dharti Ke Laal’ (1946) had already covered this theme.

Anil Biswas and Dr Safdar Aah Sitapuri had worked together for 15 years in 15 films with a break during 1943-44 when Anil Biswas shifted to the Bombay Talkies. As a lyricist, Safdar Aah Sitapuri worked with Anil Biswas for the first time in ‘Comrades’ (1939) followed by ‘Alladdin’ (1940) and ‘Aurat’ (1940). They worked together for the last time in ‘Maan’ (1954) which he also directed. Thereafter, he returned to teaching Urdu literature in his university and published books like ‘Amir Khusro Bhaisiyat Hindi Shaayar’, ‘Rubiyaat-e-Zamzama’(1963), ‘Meer Aur Meeryaat’ (1972), ‘Tulsidas Aur Ramcharitmanas’ (1977).

Enjoy this light-hearted fun song.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Kholo kholo man ke
Kholo kholo man ke dwaar Muraari re
Kholo kholo man ke
Dwaare khadi hai kabse
Raadha tihaari
Kholo kholo man ke
Kholo kholo man ke dwaar Muraari re
Kholo kholo man ke

Mere soone se jeewan mein
Kaahe bairan bansiya bajaayee
Mere soone se jeewan mein
Kaahe bairan bansiya bajaayee
Mere bhole bhaale man mein Kaahe
Soyi preet jagayee
Jagaayee
Mere bhole bhaale man mein Kaahe
Soyi preet jagayee
Jagaayee
Ab to kar do birhan ki
Rain ujiyaari
Kholo kholo man ke
Kholo kholo man ke dwaar Muraari re
Kholo kholo man ke

Hum hain janam janam ke saathi
Tum ho deepak Main hoon baati
Hum hain janam janam ke saathi
Tum ho deepak Main hoon baati
Jo baati dil mein bas jaati to
Jalti aur muskaati
Muskaati
Jo baati dil mein bas jaati to
Jalti aur muskaati
Muskaati
Pyaari pyaari hain Preet ki aag Bihaari
Kholo kholo man ke
Kholo kholo man ke dwaar Muraari re
Kholo kholo man ke
Dwaar khadi hai kabse Raadha tihaari
Kholo kholo man ke
Kholo kholo man ke dwaar Muraari re
Kholo kholo man ke
