“Khul Ja Sim Sim”(1956) was produced by Mulkraj Bhakri and directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Golden Movies, Bombay. This movie had Shakila, Mahipal, Hiralal, Maruti, Krishnakumari, Nadir Mota, Sadiq, Amrit Ran, Nazi, Bakshi, John Hague, Bihari, Vijaya Kumari, Pal Premi, Helen, Niranjan Sharma etc in it, with Al Nasir credited as guest artist.

The movie had eight songs in it. Three songs from the movie were discussed. All of them were covered in the blog in 2011.

Now, after a passage of some six years, here is the next song from “Khul Ja Sim Sim”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of this song is available. From the sounds of it, this song appears to be a song that would be sung by Marjeena to entertain the fourty thieves, with the thieves unaware what was going to happen later. So, my guess is that this song is picturised on Shakila playing Marjeena. I request our knowledgeable readers to help confirm/ refute my assumption.


Song-Aaj kuchh hone waala hai (Khul Ja Sim Sim)(1956) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

aaj kuchh hone waala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
zara bachke
zara bachke
zara bachke rahna
bachhke rahna

aaj kuchh hone waala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai

dil ki himmat sabse badi hai
pyaar ki taaqat sabse badi hai
husn ki daulat sabse badi hai
husn ki daulat sabse badi hai
hamne yahi dekha hai
jabse hosh sambhaala hai ae
jabse hosh sambhaala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
zara bachke
zara bachke
zara bachke rahna
bachke rahna
bachke rahna ji

hosh mein rahna o matwaale
aankhen hain do zehar ke pyaale
zulf nahin do saanp hain kaale
zulf nahin do saanp hain kaale
zara sambhaalna
husn ka har ek waar niraala hai ae
har ek waar niraala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
aaj kuchh hone waala hai
zara bachke
zara bachke
zara bachke rahna
bachke rahna
bachke rahna ji
aaj kuchh hone waala hai

Today’s song is from from an almost forgotten film of the Golden period- Jeevan Sathi-57. This particular song is a very melodious one which had been quite popular in those days. I was surprised how this song was not yet posted here so long. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt, written by Indeevar, it is composed by by a talented but a moderately successful composer- Bulo C. Rani.

Bulo C Rani was such composer whose best is buried under the debris . When the slow paced melodious music was replaced by the fast paced
rhythmic melodies, Bulo suddenly lost his relevance as a composer. He lived in a state of hibernation for so long that his death – a suicide – on 24th May 1993 at 73 was reported as if it was a matter of no big consequence. The eventful career of Bulo C Rani in the 40’s and the early 50’s was forgotten.

Bulo c Rani was born on may 6, 1920 in Hyderabad, Sindh and his original name was Bulo Chandiramani Ramchandani. His father Chandiram was also a composer and he has composed for a film Insan ya Shaitaan[1933]. Incidentally, this was the first film in which our National Anthem ” Jan gan Man…” was composed. Bulo obviously grew up in a musical atmosphere and hence in a way, it was not surprising that after graduating, he went to Lahore with the express intention of composing for films and joined Ghulam Haider for a while he came to mumbai in 1942 with D N Madhok and joined Ranjit films to assist Khemchand Prakash and later on to Gyan Dutt. Independently he gave music to Ranjit films from 1945 onwards only.

Khemchand gave him a break as a singer in 1942 in Mehman. in 1942 Gyan Dutt also gave him opportunity to sing. In 1943 he got six films to sing in. In all he sang 34 songs in 19 films. O JOGAN O BAIRAGI in Shankar Parvati [music by Gyan Dutt] was very popular. in 1944 he composed for Pagli Duniya. He composed for the film murti-45. in it Badariya Baras Gayi – which mukesh’s first song as the composer often claimed with pride – won popularity.Before that in film Paigham-43. 2 songs are credited to him. An important thing is, Bulo sang in Pagli Duniya-44 as BHOLA and subsequently too he sang as Bhola. Most people credit these songs to composer Bhola Shreshtha, which is wrong. BHOLA is Bulo C Rani.

Bulo composed for 71 films, and composed 574 songs.

His music was not highly original, but it successfully exploited the intrinsic acceptability of conventional forms such as bhajans, or the newly circulating patriotic musical idioms, which appealed to certain stock responses.

one wonders whether he was more adequate as a singer than a composer – at least when he began his career when actor – singers had singing voices!

Mukesh, after his initial failure as a singer, caught music lovers’ attention only when he sang for Bulo in ‘Moorty’ ( ‘Badariya baras gai us paar’/with Hamida and Khursheed/1945 )

The film ‘Jogan’ (1950) was a land -mark in Bulo’s career. His composing skill enabled him to enhance the inherent charm of Meerabai’s traditional bhajans such as ‘ghoonghat Ke Pat Khol re’, ‘Main to giridhar Ke ghar jaaoon’, ‘Damag damag dole naiya’ and ‘ Jogi mat ja, mat ja’. Even the Holi song (‘Rang daaro ri’) and the sentimental one in the voice of Talat (‘Sundarta Ke Sabhi Shikari’) were no less appealing. More than Dilip Kumar and Nargis in the film it was Bulo’s music which turned out to be the real star.

Before ‘Jogan’ came his way Bulo had already earned recognition through the films such as ‘Rajputani’ (‘Ja parwane ja kahin shama jal rahi hai/Mukesh, hamida and ‘Anjuman (‘Kaise bataoon tum se is dil ko pyar kyun hai’/Shamshad, Mukesh) and the immense popularity of the song ‘Armaan bhara dil toot gaya’ (‘Wafa/Lata, Mukesh).

Bulo C Rani had a special fascination for heavy voices which were capable of more expressive power. For the same reason he was able to create a great impact on listeners with the voices of Amirbai (‘Sooni padi hai payar k duniya tere baghair’/ ‘Carvan’).Zohra (‘Ankhon mein intezaar Ki duniya liye huve’/’Carvan’) and geeta Roy(Dutt) in the songs of ‘Jogan’. Bulo did not hesitate to create an enchanting melody in the song ‘Badi bhool hui tujhe pyar kiya’ in ‘Maghroor’. Geeta Dutt was his favourite singer. He gave over 60 songs to Geeta alone.

‘Bilwamangal’ (1954) was the last significant film of Bulo c Rani. Suraiya sang one of her most memorable song ‘Parwanon se preet seekhli, shama se seekha jal jaana’ and so did C.H. Atma in ‘Panghat pe more shyam bajaaye muraliya’.

Despite the popularity of a stray song such as ‘Hamen to loot liya milkehusn Walon ne’ (Ismail Azad/’Al Hilal’/1958), Bulo C Rani just continued to drift because his music had not remained a viable commercial proposition. After ‘Sunhare Qadam’ (1966), Bulo’s career came to an end. Having once enjoyed the position of prominence the lack of assignment made him restless. No films came to him. In addition, his family sold his posh flat in Shivaji Park and shifted to Versova, which hurt him a lot. He lost the will to live.

It was an irony of fate that the song he composed in the voice of Lata in his last film ‘Sunhare Qadam’ was ‘Maangne se jo maut mil jaati, Kaun jeeta zamane men’.

Irony was that in life he asked for death and he got it. And how horribly too ! It is said that he committed suicide by immolating himself. When his body was burning, he ran on the streets shouting in pain and finally fell on the road dead.

In the film Jeevan Sathi-57, there were 5 Lyricists. One of them was Kumud Tripathi. He joined the industry to become a Lyricist ( like comedian Kanhaiyalal Chaturvedi) but ended up becoming a comedian. During his struggling days in the early 50s, he was staying in Bandra’s slums along with Sunil Dutt and Rajendra kumar. He acted in 73 films. His one role I remember is from film Apradhi Kaun-57, in which he had sung two songs also on the screen. After retirement from the films, he joined TV and did a memorable role as Guptaji ( owner of a Gen. Store) in famous serial of the 1986 period- Nukkad.

Films with the title “Jeevan Saathi” were made 4 times. 1939, 1949, 1957,and 1988. The prefix Jeevan was used in 34 films in different combinations. The cast of the film was Ashok kumar, Usha Kiran, Anup kumar,Amarnath, Jabeen, Iftekhar, Mirza Musharraf etc etc. I have not seen this film, so I do not know if Iftekhar has done the Police officer’s role here. Iftekhar had become synonymous with Police Commissioner in Hindi films-like Jagdish Raj was always remembered as a Police Inspector ( a record 144 films ). The difference was Jagdish Raj never got promoted as a regular Commissioner, and Iftekhar mostly portrayed a Commissioner or Inspector General.

Along with Ashok Kumar, Motilal, Sanjeev Kumar and Amitabh Bachhan, Iftekhar is my favourite actor. I like the way he carried himself in any role.

Sayyadana Iftekhar Ahmed Shareef was born in Jallundhar on 26-2-1922. His father was a big gun i a private company at Kanpur, so his education upto Matriculation took place in Kanpur. Then he went to Lucknow to do a Diploma i Painting. He was very fond of singing and wanted to become a singer like the legendary Saigal. Naturally , he went to Calcutta to gain entry into singing . There he met Kamal Dasgupta who was impressed with his personality and mannerisms.

He not only recorded 2 of his songs, but also recommended his name as an actor to his production company. In 1944, Iftekhar was taken as an actor in film Taqraar, opposite actress Jamuna. Next year, he did Ghar-45 and also Rajlakshmi-45- in which Talat Mehmood also acted and sang songs. During this period he fell in love with a Jew Girl- Hanna Joseph, who stayed in his building. Iftekhar broke his earlier engagement to Sayeeda from Lucknow and got married to Hanna,after converting her to Islam. Sayeeda never married in her life time after this break up. He got 2 daughters.

After 1947, his family had migrated to pakistan, but he chose to remain in India. By that time he had done 2 more films,namely, Aisa Kyun and Tum aur Main. He decided to shift to Bombay due to riots in Calcutta in 47-48. In Bombay, he had no work and faced lot of problems. His wife had to do a job for sustenance. Iftekhar was recognised and helped by Ashok Kumar. He was given a role in film Muqaddar-50. Being a good painter, Iftekhar taught Painting to Ashok Kumar. In the next 20 years, he did 70 films.

Then came film Ittefaq-1969, in which he did the role of a Police Officer. This film changed his life and there was no looking back. Films like Zanjeer, Deewar etc further augmented his image and he was well entrenched. He bought a house, car etc. His daughters got married. Iftekhar acted in 318 films in all.

After his younger daughter’s death, Iftekhar was a broken man. He fell ill and within a month’s time, he died on 1-3-1995.

It is written many places on Internet that Iftekhar was the brother of actress Veena. It is NOT true. His only sister Shameem got married and migrated to Lahore,in 1947, where she died recently. ( adapted,with Thanks, from http://www.beetehuedin.blogspot.com)

Film Jeevan Sathi-57 had a complicated storyline, which I had read somewhere. Ashok Kumar’s sister is engaged to an young farmer but she loves a married lawyer having a wife and a son. The farmer comes to the city, meets with accident and is admitted to a hospital where the lawyer’s wife is admitted. they start loving each others. I did not read the story further. Same was the reaction of the audience also and the film was a flop.

The songs were quite good. There were 8 songs. 3 songs are already discussed on the Blog. Today’s song is the 4th song. For 8 songs, there were 7 singers, including Bulo himself.

Let us now enjoy this beautiful Geeta Dutt song…..

The movie title “Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) was clearly inspired from the iconic song of “Nastik”(1954) with this mukhda.

“Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) was directed by I S Johar for Modern Theatre, Bombay. The movie had Ajit, Nalini Jaywant, I S Johar, Kamaljeet, Uday Laxmi, Shanti, Harbans Lal, Saroja, Anil Dutta etc in it. Inbcidentally, I S Johar was the director of “Nastik”(1954) as well. Ajit, Nalini Jaywant and I S Johar were there is “Nastik” (1954) as well. So it appears that this movie was inspired by “Nastik” (1954) in more ways that one.

“Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) had eleven songs in it. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

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

With this song, “Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Jab tum nahin to chaand sitaare main kya karoon (Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan)(1957) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

jab tum nahin to chaand sitaare main kya karoon
jab tum nahin to chaand sitaare main kya karoon
ye phool ye chaman ye nazaare main kya karoon
jab tum nahin to chand sitaare main kya karoon

kal tak hawa mein khel rahi thhi yahaan hansi
kal tak hawa mein khel rahi thhi yahaan hansi
chaaron taraf hai chhaai huyi aaj bekasi
dil ro raha hai gham mein tumhaare main kya karoon
ye phool ye chaman ye nazaare main kya karoon
jab tum nahin to chaand sitaare main kya karoon

tum kya gaye ke jaise chaman se gayi bahaar
tum kya gaye ke jaise chaman se gayi bahaar
har cheez ko yahaan ki tumhaara hai intzaar
meri taraha udaas hain saare main kya karoon
ye phool ye chaman ye nazare main kya karoon
jab tum nahin to chaand sitaare main kya karoon
ye phool ye chaman ye nazare mai kya karoon

Report on Gangout in Mumbai on 29-4-2017, Part 1
—————————————————–

It so happened that Bakshish Singh ji had informed me that he would be in Mumbai, for a week, in February. Later on he informed that author Javed Hamid ji will also accompany him and so he suggested that we meet on 25th February 2017. Accordingly, all arrangements were made and plans were drawn by me and Sadanand ji. However, around 20th February or so, Bakshish ji informed me that due to a death in the family, he had cancelled his visit. So, the meeting was postponed to April end when, as per him, he would come to Mumbai with Sudhir ji and Javed ji.

In the meantime, Bharatbhai had left for a long trip to USA. These things were not new to me. even in the past,such planned meetings had been cancelled in Mumbai. Maximum number of Gangouts were planned, cancelled and also held in Mumbai, in last few years. Sigh ! Anyway, come April and once again Mails started flying between me, Sudhir ji and Sadanand ji. Now of course only two of us, me and Sadanand ji remained in Mumbai as active participants.( Nitin ji in Indore and no response from Nahm ji ). To further precipitate the matters, even Sadanand ji had expressed his doubts due to a proposed US visit. Luckily that was postponed and he was available.

Lo and behold ! As if it was mandatory, there was a death in the family of Bakshish Singh ji this time also and he cancelled his programme again. Sudhir ji too informed that even his programme was doubtful. I was following advise from Shrikrishna to Arjuna in Geeta- be a Sthitapradnya- स्थितप्रज्ञ – in adverse conditions. Means do not get affected by happenings surrounding you. I was mentally prepared for yet another cancellation of the Gangout. ( Anyway, I have decided to suggest to Bakshish Sngh ji that he should announce that he is going to Kolkata and coolly come to Mumbai !).

Sudhir ji, Bakshish Singh ji and Javed ji had plans to visit Pune also, after their seminar ( on 30th April and 1st May) was over. Because of the changed plans, even Javed ji wanted to cancel his Mumbai visit. In addition to all this, some health problem in Sudhir ji’s family put the whole plan in jeopardy !

All this uncertainty was causing hurdles in planning anything concrete for the Gangout. We were not even sure if it will take place. In all the earlier Gangouts at my place, we had lunch and Tea arrangements made by my daughters at home ( in Sudhir ji’s words “Anju-Manju event management company”). This time however, both daughters were not available, so we decided to make it a hybrid programme. My cook will make Chapati and Rice, other food will be ordered from outside and Sadanand ji would take care of the Sweets, while coming. From our side everything was planned and we sat with crossed fingers.

Finally,just one day prior to the Gangout, i.e. on Friday the 28th April, Sudhir ji confirmed that he and Javed ji have boarded the train for Mumbai and would arrive on 29th morning, as scheduled. He also confirmed that Bakshish singh ji, with all the difficulties, would reach Mumbai next day,i.e. on 30th….he would miss the Gangout but we could meet later. We heaved a sigh of relief and I gave all the finishing touches to the meeting.

As scheduled, Sudhir ji and Javed ji arrived in Mumbai on the morning of 29th April. Their train was one hour late. They alighted at Borivali and took a taxi to my place in Andheri. Normally the taxi fare would be around 250 to 300 rupees,depending on the traffic on the road. I was surprised that the Taxi driver charged them Rs. 600. They said even the meter showed this amount. This is an old trick used for outsiders, by the drivers. What they do is, they do not close the earlier trip meter to zero. Thus when the new passenger sits in the taxi, the meter starts from last reading.

I was very happy to see both of them. They were offered a welcome drink of Nimbu-Pani and over the drinks, they got the good news that they were cheated by the Taxi driver. With a sad heart, they freshened up and then had a breakfast of hot Upma and Idli sambar and Tea. By this time it was 11 am. At about 11.30 am Sadanand ji arrived with a box of sweets and Namkeen ( Kothimbir-vadi, a local delicacy) and finally….the meeting started. ( End of Part – 1 ).

Today’s song is from the film “Awara Shehzadi”-1956. The film makes its debut on the Blog with its first song.

Awara seems to be a favourite prefix of film titles. There are a total of 14 film titles having Awara in it. Funnily, the original “Awara Shehzada”was a film of 1933. It took 23 years to bring about a female version of the Title with Awara Shehzadi in 1956 ! Incidentally, film ‘Awara Shehzada’-33 was the First Talkie film, having a Double Role. Shahu Modak had done the roles of the Prince ( Rajkumar) and the Pauper ( Bholaram) in this film. It was directed by Master Vithal, the First Hero of First Talike of India, “Aalam Ara “-1931.

Film Awara Shehzadi-56 was produced by Hind Pictures and the Producer/Director was one Pyarelal. I do not know anything about this Pyarelal, but Hind pictures was originally established and owned by the successful Actor and Director Nazir Ahmed Khan. During the Partition riots, Hind pictures studio was burnt by the mob. Nazir Ahmed stood there,smoking a cigarette,watching his property turn into ashes. He must be glad, nobody recognised him. He knew that in Lahore, same type of frenzied mob had burnt Dalsukh Pancholi’s studio to ashes and he had expected its repercussions in India too. After this, shortly,he left everything he had earned in India here only and with only worn clothes left for Pakistan. There he started fro scratch again and became Pakistan’s successful produce/Director. This time he had his third wife, actress Swarnalata with him. His second wife Sitara Devi had eloped with his nephew K.Asif ( he ran a Tailoring shop then) to Delhi. Under the “Enemy Property law”-48, Hind picture studios must have been allotted to some person who had lost everything in Pakistan. May be this was that Pyarelal. I do not know. He produced and directed 4 films under the same banner-Hind pictures.

Film ‘Awara Shehzadi ‘ -56 had two MDs. Jimmy and Nashad. Composer Jimmy is one of those little known composers who never got fame or name in spite of their Talents. His real name was JAMES SINGH. he was a Christian sikh from Ludhiana. He was educated in Delhi. He started his career in Hindi films as a singer in Chorus. he could play many western instruments, especially all types of Guitars. When he failed as a singer, he became assistant to many composers. Finally, he got his chance to compose few songs for film ‘Muqaddar-50’,though with Khemchand Prakash and Bhola Shreshtha. He composed 2 duets of Asha and Kishore. The credit of teaching ” Yodelling ” to Kishore Kumar goes to Jimmy. Kishore ‘yodelled ‘ for the first time in this film.

Jimmy then gave music in 14 more films like, Shrimati ji, Smuggler, Awara Shehzadi, Sher e Baghdad, Nek khatoon, Pathan, Miss Chaalbaaz, Tarzan and Gorilla, Duniya hai dilwalon ki, Tarzan in fairy land, Khoon aur sazaa, Pyar ki baazi ,Aakhir and his last film, Sachhi Ibadat-1987. Inspite of giving sweet and melodious songs of a variety, Jimmy never came up to A class. He always remained a composer for C grade films. Anyway, as long as Kishore’s yodelling is heard, Jimmy’s name will be remembered.

In spite of my efforts, I could find only one song of this film on You Tube, so that way, it is a rare song. There were 7 songs in the film. 4 were composed by Jimmy and 3 by Nashad. Today’s song has a very good tune. Somewhere I felt that the same tune is used by another song in some film,but I could not remember that song. If any reader finds that song with similar tune, kindly put a comment here. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt and chorus. The Lyricist was Khawar Jama ( what a name ! ), who wrote 75 songs in 28 films- mostly B and C grade films. He had acted also in film Chandu-58.

The story of Awara Shehzadi was a typical one. The lead pair was Meena Shorey and Daljit. Daljit ( real name Jogender Puri) was born on 17-9-1931. He acted in 43 films and directed 2 films. All Stunt and action films. He had done 11 films with Chitra.

Meena is an unfortunate princess, who was abandoned by her father, because she was declared as a girl with lot of misfortune. A loyal maid took her and brought her up for 20 years. When she comes to know the truth, she decides to regain her position and heads to the Capital of the kingdom.

On her way, she meets a dancer. She takes her costume and proceeds. She meets the hero, who is like a Robin Hood. They fall in love. After completing the mandatory songs around trees etc, they proceed to the city. There are a series of funny and daring incidents. They are arrested as thieves, jailed, put in mental asylum and also sentenced to death. However with the help of good luck, friends and the team of Director and script writers they finally reach the king and reveal their identity.
Everything is fine after that and the lovers sing a song before the film closes.

Now let us enjoy this song.

Editor’s note- As many as 120 movies were released in the year 1956. This movie is the 100th movie of 1956 to find representation in the blog.
