Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 15
————————————————————————————–

Welcome all to this post under ‘blog ten year challenge 2013-2023’.

On the first day of this month ten years back (viz on 1 February 2013) five songs were posted on the blog as per details given below.

Song Title Name of the movie (Year) Remarks
La bulbula Ustaad Pedro(1951) Yippeeee’ed
Meri zindagi ek aisa diya Naina(1953) 4 of 7 songs posted
Tu aaye na aaye teri khushi Bewafa(1952) 8 of 9 songs posted
O kanhaiyya o kanhaiyya Kanhaiyya(1959) Yippeeee’ed
Barbaad e muhabbat ki duaa saath liye jaa Laila Majnu(1976) Yippeeee’ed

Out of the five movies represented on the blog on 01.02.2013 three movies have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed on the blog and that gives us two movies which gives us opportunities to present songs.

If we see the figures for the total number of songs posted in February’2013 it was ‘150’ songs exactly. That means the songs were posted in this month at average of just over ‘five’ songs per day.

If we look at the figures of songs posted in the month of ‘February’ since the inception of the blog we get the following figures.

YEAR FEBRUARY
2008 0*
2009 161
2010 31
2011 102
2012 178
2013 150

2017 104
2018 116
2019 39
2020 47
2021 46
2022 43

*(Blog started later in the year in the month of July’2008)
We can see that the highest score for the month of ‘February’ is ‘178’ in the year ‘2012’. The lowest score of ‘February’ is ‘31’ in the year ‘2010’.
We have started this new year ‘2023’ by scoring a ‘century’ in the month of ‘January-2023’, so let us hope to continue and maintain the ‘scoring rate’ in this month i.e. Feburary’2023 too. 🙂

Let us now come to today’s BTYC movie. Out of the five movies represented on the blog ‘Ustaad Pedro-1951’, ‘Kanhaiyya-1959’ and ‘Laila Majnu-1976’ have been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog i.e. all songs of these movies have been covered on the blog.

From the two movies eligible today i.e. ‘Bewafa-1952’ and ‘Naina-1953’, I am presenting a song from the ‘1953’ movie ‘Naina’.

“Naina” (1953) was produced by Chandu, and directed by Ravindra Dave for Chandu Studios Limited, Bombay. This movie had Geeta Bali, Abhi Bhattacharya, Neeru, Manju, Leela Mishra, Ramesh Sinha, Ramesh Arora, Khairati, Narbada Shankar, Burhan, Patanjali, Raj Adeeb, Anand Pal, Biman Bannerji and others in it.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.04.1953.

‘Naina-1953’ has seven songs. They were written by Uddhav Kumar (three songs), Anjum (three songs) and P.L. Santoshi (one song).

Music for this movie was composed by Manna Dey (four songs) and Ghulam Mohammad (three songs).

So far, four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the fifth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.
It is sung by Geeta Dutt. Lyrics are by Anjum and music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Let us listen to this song now. Only the audio of this song is available.

Lyrics for this song have been provided by Prakashchandra.

#the Decade of Forties – 1941 – 1950 #
————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Biwi’ of ‘1950’ (or ‘Beewee’ as HFGK mentions it).

This movie completed its’ ‘ten-year’ run on the blog on 08th January’2023, and so it was due for a song from it to be posted on that day. However, we missed that opportunity. Nevertheless today we will listen to a song from this movie.

‘Biwi-1950’ was directed by Kishore Sharma for ‘Paristaan Pictures’.

It had Mumtaz Shanti, Veena, Madhuri, Naseer, Pran, Ram Lal, Gulnar, Murad, Anjaam, Shabnam, Sheila Burman and others.

This movie has as many as thirteen songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950).
So far, three songs form this movie have been discussed on the blog.
This movie had made its debut on the blog wherein our respected Sudhir ji had presented a post with the most well-known (I think so) song from this movie on 08.01.2013. This song is ‘akele mein wo ghabraate to honge’ sung by Rafi Saab.

After this song two songs were added to this movie later in 2017.

Today we will have a look on the list of songs from this movie since it has not been given in the earlier posts .

Lyrics for this movie were contributed by three lyricist viz. Nazim Panipati, Wali Sahab and Aziz Hindi. However lyricists name for the individual songs is mentioned for only six songs and lyricist name for the rest seven songs is not known.

Music for this movie was composed by Aziz Hindi and Khayyam (under the name as Sharma ji).

Here is the list of songs:-

(** Note – Songs at sr.no. 3, 12 & 13 – Composer is Sharma ji (Khayyam). And songs mentioned at sr.no. 8,9,10 & 11 have been composed by Aziz Hindi.
As per HFGK Vol-II song no.2 is composed by both Aziz Hindi and Sharma ji. )

Today we will listen to song mentioned at sr.no. 09. Singer’s name for this song is mentioned as Geeta Roy and Asha Bhonsle. (I guess that this song is sung by Geeta Roy only.).

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Lyrics for the today’s song have been sent by Prakashchandra.

Let us enjoy the today’s song now…

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 140
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 31 December 2012, seven songs from seven movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7294 Jhulna jhulaave Nandlala Narsi Bhagat (1940) 3 songs covered out of 15 by now
7295 Dekho dekho sajan tum na aana Meri Kahaani (1948) 4 songs covered out of 10 by now

7300 Mohabbat ka haath jawaani ka palla Howrah Bridge(1958) Movie YIPPEED by now

We notice that three movies (out of seven) whose songs were discussed ten years ago on this date (viz on 31 decemberb2012) have since been YIPPEED. One of them in fact was YIPPEED on that date.

That leaves us with four movies that are eligible for blog Ten Year Challenge today (31 December 2022).

“Meri Kahaani”(1948) is one movie which is eligile for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

“Meri Kahaani”(1948) was directed by Keki Mistry for Super Team Federal Productions, Bombay. The movie had Surendra, Munawwar Sultana, Prathima devi, Sanobar, Leela Kumari, Ramesh Sinha, Bhudo Advani, Santosh Kumar, Murad Khan, Vaskar etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Meri Kahaani”(1948) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Surendra and Geeta Dutt (then Roy). Pt anuj is the lyricist. Music is composed by K Datta (aka Datta Korgaonkar).

Only audio of the song is available. It is clear that this “expression of love” song was picturised on the le pair viz Surendra and Munawwar Sultana. I request our knowlegeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Bulbul ko mila phool to nadi ko kinaara (Meri Kahaani)(1948) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Surendra, Lyrics-Pt Anuj, MD-K Datta

Lyrics

bulbul ko milaa phool
bulbul ko milaa phool
to nadi ko kinaara
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
kisi dil kaa sahara
bulbul ko milaa phool
to nadi ko kinaara
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
kisi dil kaa sahaara
ithlaaye huye koi chalaa aata hai man mein
ithlaaye huye koi chalaa aata hai man mein
kartaa hai koi chaand ki khidki se ishaaraa
kartaa hai koi chaand ki khidki se ishaaraa
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
kisi dil kaa sahara

bulbul ko milaa phool to nadi ko kinaara
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
kisi dil kaa sahaara

machla hua dil apna ye armaanon bhara dil
kehne ko humaara hai
magar hai ye tumhaara
kehne ko humaara hai
magar hai ye tumhaara
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
kisi dil kaa sahaara

baithe huye hum gaate rahe pyaar bhara geet
chha jaaye zamaane pe yahi geet humaara
chha jaaye zamaane pe yahi geet humaara
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
kisi dil kaa sahaara
ik tooti hui naav hai insaan kaa jeewan

armaan nadi aur muhabbat hai kinaara
armaan nadi aur muhabbat hai kinaara
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
kisi dil kaa sahara
bulbul ko milaa phool to nadi ko kinaara
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
har dil ko hai duniyaa mein
kisi dil kaa sahaara

98th birth anniversary of Mohammed Rafi sahab

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 11

How the human mind works and the vagaries of human memory system, the scientists are still figuring out. I, for one, am very grateful that my memory brings forth to the mind a significant Rafi song to write a post at the most unexpected moment.

Since last few months, things have been very hectic at the domestic front, for no real tangible reason. They just are somewhat crazy, with stress levels running high on the work front too. Family events, travels notwithstanding, I should have written a few more posts this year, if only I could focus. So much so that I was on the verge of advising the HOD that the office needs a “self-help-stress management” “how to make the office atmosphere positive” “How to have healthy work relations with colleagues” sort of workshops/seminar. Not that I am going to do any such thing as advising the HOD, at-least I am trying not to. The thing is, a close friend expressed an opinion, if any such events are organised at the office, this will add to the stress levels of the already stressed-out officers.

I could also suggest some soothing music to be played on the non-existing PA system. There really are many classic music compositions, human civilization has produced. Many of them are having soothing qualities, some have the capacity to amaze the listener, that something like this could be created. There are many amazing and wonderful things, that we human can be grateful for. Sounds of music is one of them. The simplest things in life, which are free are to be valued and be thankful for. I thought the pandemic and tribulations it brought to humans, would make us all better humans, and teach us thankfulness, for many of the blessings which we all take to granted.

Post pandemic, as the world is back to normal, the massive restrictions during 2020 & 2021 are all but forgotten, which seem like a bad dream. Only sometimes I think of those days when work from home was possible, that was one advantage.

I honestly feel, it has had an impact on the evolution of humans. It has had huge psychological impact on young kids and elders. It is to be hoped that kids with the resilience of the young, will get past this bad dream. But the reminders of the bad dream are everywhere around us. The other day, I saw those round circles painted on the floor outside a supermarket. We were made to stand in queue to buy groceries, only a few people allowed inside at a time, to buy essentials for gods sake. If this was not a trial of psychological bondage training imparted to masses, then what was it? No wonder, humans, evolved after the pandemic are more disgruntled than before.

As the scientific community is grappling with the impact on the mental health (which is the new pandemic), lowered immunity in young and old, it is the responsibility and duty of able-minded people in the society to take great care, of their social surroundings, environment and individuals who may need a word or two, of care, of encouragement, of belief, of faith that things do not remain the same, they always change for the better.

No doubt that the research papers and thesis that come out on the impact of COVID – 19 on humanity, will point to the great stress it put on the psychological strength of the world’s populace. For this, the disease is not at fault, but the handling of the crisis, is the culprit. Having said this, I admit that being judgmental in hindsight is easy. But dealing with the aftermath is not going to be easy and it requires all the resilience of humanity.

I read about the voyager 1 & 2 sometime back and about the recordings of sounds to earth which they carried. With great hope I looked for the details of Indian songs in the 90 minutes music record. I found this Hindustani classical song is part of that.

Bhairavi: Jaat Kahan Ho Traditional Kesarbai Kerkar (vocals) with harmonium, Tanpura and tabla accompaniment Recorded in Bombay, April 1953 Hindustani Shastriya Sangeet (Indian classical music) 3:30

Hindustani classical music is an important component of sound of earth in all senses, so its inclusion in the above record is not a surprise. For our part, we have here a hindi film song which is a Hindustani classical song, by Mohammed Rafi Sahab. This is from the film Mrig Trishna(1975), written and composed by Shambhu Sen. This is a soothing, mental massage, critically acclaimed song. I was aware of the song and have heard it many times before today. I have also heard a great fan of Rafi Sahab, singing this song, and he was all praises for this rendition by the maestro. Obviously, he knows a great deal more about classical music than me. I had seen the song many times of TV too. So as soon as he said the mukhda before singing it, I was able to recollect even the filming of the song, and Hema Malini dancing to it. This was a few years ago. But today seeing the song again, I have also remembered reading somewhere, about the location shoot of the song. It is filmed at an actual location of some Haveli or fort is Rajasthan. The original art work and carpet and the carving in the pillars and jharokhas is visible in the hall.

Before starting this post I had checked and could not find the film Mrig Trishna (1975) in the list. But I just thought of checking it again, and now I find that 2 songs from this film are posted and this particular song is posted here.

So here we are, in the 99th year of Rafi Sahab, we are soon going to enter the 100th year of Rafi Sahab. I hope and pray, that we maintain the equilibrium as humanity and take inspiration from the personality of Rafi Sahab and his life’s principles.

Rafi Sahab, keep spreading happiness and peace to the world and beyond, even if the Voyager, has missed out on including your amazing voice. No doubt, as one of the super creations, Rafi sahab has made his contribution to this civilization and increased the ‘shobhaa’ of this ‘sansaar’.

I am posting this funny group song from the film Madhur Milan(1955), which the antithesis of Hindustani classical, which was my original idea for this post. Geeta Dutt and A. R. Ojha are giving company or having fun with Rafi sahab in the song composed by Bulo C. Rani. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Among the legendary associations, Geeta Dutt, is next to only Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan was also part of Madan Mohan’s team for a time. While Bulo C. Rani has composed many sweet renditions by Rafi sahab in early 50’s, some of which I have posted.

So we enjoy this social comic song by this team on this birth anniversary occasion.

Today’s song is an interesting Trio from an old film Ghayal-1951.

The cast of the film was Sulochana Chaterjee, Shaikh Mukhtar, Geeta Bali, Jawahar Kaul, Ramsingh, p.Kailash, pesi Patel, Honey O’Brien, Yeshwant Dave, Rewa Shankar Marwadi and many more. There were 7 Lyricists for 11 songs of the film (one of them is a 2 part song). Likewise there were 6 singers. The M.D. was Gyan Dutt. All the singers were well known, except the singer ‘ Bhola’.

Many people think that Bhola was Bhola Shreshtha, the M.D., but it’s not true. This Bhola was Bulo C Rani,M.D. He joined the industry to be a singer. Khemchand Prakash gave him an opportunity to sing in the film Mehmaan-1942. Later, the same year,Gyan Dutt also gave him songs.Bulo C Rani sang 34 songs in 19 films – initial in his own name, and from 1944 onwards as ‘Bhola’, as he had become a Music Director himself by then, from film Moorti-1944.

Bulo C Rani was a Science graduate. In those days of early cinema, most people who joined the film line were less educated and mostly from lower middle class or poor families. Not ALL of course. There were few highly educated actors, directors, MDs etc but their number was much less. Actresses like Renuka Devi, Vanmala, Nalini Tarkhad etc. were graduates. Actors like Ashok kumar and Ranjan were graduates. Artistes like Dewan Sharar, Devika rani and Shakuntala Paranjpye had International experience, they wrote books also. Director Nanubhai Vakil and actor Surendra were BA,LL.B.

Ramchandra Thakur, Producer and Director of film Ghayal-51, was also from Elite and highly educated class. He also wrote articles in magazines – before and after his film career. Ramchandra Thakur was one such scholarly person who was a Postgraduate and a prolific writer on films in English, Hindi and Gujarati, before joining films. Ramchandra Thakur was born in Suver of Sabarkantha district in Gujarat, on 17-12-1908. He moved to Bombay when he was just 9 year old. He pursued his higher education in Bombay and emerged as a scholar of Pali language. When he gave his M.A. final exam, he wanted to become a teacher in a college, if he got First class. If not, he would join the film industry as a director. During his college years he had written many articles on films. He had translated Sound Recordist Minu Katrak’s English works in Hindi and Gujarati.

When he did not get First class, he joined Sagar Movietone, in its Marketing department. After a few months, Baburao Patel took over from him and he became an assistant director to Chimanlal Luhar for the film Dynamite-38. Next, along with Virendra Desai ( Nalini Jaywant’s first husband), he became a co-director of the film The Gramophone Singer-38. His first film, as an independent Director was the Debut film of Snehprabha Pradhan – Civil marriage-40. Then he joined Ranjit Movietone. He directed mythological, Social and Comedy films. Art Director Kanu Desai’s film Geet Govind was directed by him. Thakur directed 20 films. He also wrote the script for the popular film Baiju Bawra-52. He produced 5 films. He directed 2 Gujarati films and wrote stories and screenplays for several Gujarati films.

He was an accomplished writer. He wrote 4 novels – Amrapali, Budhidhan Birbal, Prem Diwani and Urmila. He wrote several satirical commentaries too. He wrote a detailed article on Sagar Movietone and Chimanlal Desai in Gujarati magazine ” Jee”. His last Hindi film as a director was Nawab Sirajuddaula-67, which he had produced also. He died on 31-10-1992.

I do not know about the storyline of the film Ghayal-51. One of my favourite actors – Jawahar Kaul – acted in this film. He was a very handsome fellow and had an unique style of acting. It was his bad luck that he could not prosper or become “A” grade actor, as in his period the competition was severe and there were many better actors operating then.

Jawahar Kaul was born in a Nehru family on the 27th of September in the year 1927 in the place revered as the heaven of India – Srinagar, Kashmir. When Jawahar was six days old, his grandfather’s sister adopted him, and his surname was subsequently changed to Kaul. Kaul did his Intermediate from the Punjab University and then went to the town of Rawalpindi. After spending some time there, he decided to go to Mumbai. His parents were not in favour of it and hence he convinced them that he would complete his graduation from the Pune University. He had a deep attraction for films from an early age and hence wanted to try his luck in the industry. In the 1940s, Dadar had three studios – Ranjit, Shri Sound and Supreme and hence was the epicenter of Indian cinema. Jawahar made Dadar his address.

He was always short on money as his family wasn’t aware of his venture into cinema. He often slept at the studio of Prabha Pictures. Due to his Kashmiri background – his looks, complexion, height were impressive, and he started getting work soon. Jawahar started his career doing minor roles. He used to portray supporting characters in big films. He made his debut while playing actor Kishor Sahu’s younger brother in the 1945’s ‘Veer Kunal’. In this year, he was seen in the role of ‘Humayun Mahawat’ in ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’ which was made by Sohrab Modi. His first main lead role was in the flick ‘Khidki’ which was made in 1948. He was paired with Rehana for the same.

In Dadar, he became good friends with Radhakishan Mehra. Mehra used to live in the Lallubhai Mansion where Dada Bhagwan and Prabha Shankar Yagnik, ( brother of stunt film actor Navin Yagnik), the production managers of films used to stay too. It wasn’t long when Prabha Shankar and Kaul became good friends and started sharing their apartment. Their trio and friendship became popular in the film circle. Pyarelal Satoshi was friends with Radhakrishnan, and when he became a producer, he cast Kaul in his first movie. Kaul’s debut did average business, but the songs were a hit. Soon Kaul was seen in films like Azadi Ki Raah Par, Apni Chhaya, Kathputli, Pehli Jhalak, Laal Batti, Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam, etc. He was a legend of the Black and White Cinema. He was a superstar in the films made in the 1960s. Throughout his career, he worked only in a few selected flicks, but he was able to efficiently enrapture the audience’s attention.

Jawahar was never happy about his career- the way it went. He had wanted it to be more successful. Anyway after his last film Zalim-1980, he left acting and joined as a Production Manager with Jwala Pictures of Sandeep Sethi. After two years he became his Secretary for the next 17 years. Meanwhile he produced a film-” Agniputra “, with Mithun Chakravarti. It took a long time to finally release in 2000. Not only was it a flop, it also gave a heavy financial burden on him. However, his only son and producer daughter Shabanam Kapoor repaid everything. He died peacefully in Andheri,Mumbai, on 15-4-2019. Till the end, he looked after his school and college ‘ Children’s welfare Centre’, nearby.

Jawahr Kaul acted in 31 films starting from a small role inGeet Govind-1947. I remember his role in my favourite film Dekh kabira Roya-1957.(Thanks to Beete Hue din Blog).

Like most artistes, the music Directors of the early cinema had a tough time in their later life. Music of their era and style was no longer saleable due to the changing tastes of the people. Newer and younger MDs had a tough competition themselves. Thus these oldies were helpless. Damodar Sharma became assistant to Laxmikant Pyarelal, Madholal Master started his business of making Puppets (His Joker’s puppet was used by Raj kapoor in his film ” Mera Naam Joker”), Vithaldas Panchotiya, Krishnarao Chonkar, Badri prasad, Rewa shankar Marwadi etc. started doing small roles in films to sustain life. B.R.Deodhar opened a Music school.

Rewashankar Marwadi had acted in today’s film Ghayal-1951. I tried very hard to get some information about Rewa Shankar Marwadi, who was an actor, lyricist, singer and also music director in the 1930s and 1940s. However I could not get anything concrete. Anyway I found a note on this multi talented artist of the early era, written by Shri Dhananjay Naniwadekar aka Nani, on the old RMIM forum, some 15 years ago and adapted by me for this article.

Some of Ranjit Movietone’s earliest talkie films had music by Ustad Jhande Khan. Next came the trio of Banne Khan, Ganga Prasad Pathak and Rewa Shankar Marwari. None of that music was ever released on 78 rpm records. From 1938-39, the great duo of Gyan Dutt and Khemchand Prakash took over the charge of Ranjit’s music, later to be joined by Bulo C Rani. It was only around 1938 that Ranjit started releasing its film music on 78-rpm records.

Rewa Shankar Marwari’s association with Ranjit Films and films produced or directed by ex-Ranjit hand Jayant Desai continued in the
1940s. While it is a pleasant surprise that imdb.com has a page for an obscure name like ‘Rewashankar Marwadi’ at all, it is not surprising
that his filmography has been put together for the site by people who are far from competent at that sort of thing. He acted in 27 films, till 1955, sang 12 songs in 9 films and gave music to 21 films from ‘Veer Babruwahan’ (1934) to ‘Matrubhoomi’ (1949). After 1949 only, he started acting in films.

Rewashankar Marwadi and Gangaprasad Pathak gave music together for Gunsundari- 1934 as well as the film Raat ki Raani-35. Rewashankar Marwadi then made a pucca pair with composer Banne Khan and this pair gave music to 12 films, as a pair. ( Barrister’s wife-35, College girl-35, Qeemati aansoo-35, Noor-e-watan-35, Chalaak chor-36, Raj Ramani-36, Dil ka daaku-36, Sipahi ki sajani-36, Matlabi Duniya-36, Lehri lala-36, Ghazi Diler-36 and Mitti ka putla-37 ). In my opinion, they should be considered the first pair of MDs as well as Trend setters and NOT Husnlal-Bhagatram. Of course the number of films the H-B team did was more ( 52), but that is because after 1935, the speed of making films increased. More films were made in the 40s and the 50s than in the 30s. Moreover many composers left for Pakistan in the late 40s, so more films for less composers were available. Numbers aside, but lack of enough knowledge about the early films and artistes has led to much injustice to the Pioneers, for sure !

Today’s song is a Trio, sung by G M Durrani, Geeta Roy and Meena Kapoor along with Chorus. The song is in 2 parts recorded on one single record-on both sides. HFGK mentions it as 2 separate songs, but today’s song is the combined version running for more than 6 minutes. Durrani’s voice was suitable for soulful songs- like Talat. However personally I feel he was better than Talat, though Talat got more popular songs than him. Durrani acted in 16 films, wrote songs for 1 film (Nazare-49), gave music to 8 films composing 48 songs and sang 305 songs in 168 films.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 135
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 2 December 2012, eight songs from eight movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7108 Wo aayenge khushi ban kar Aurat(1953) Movie YIPPEED in the blog by now
7109 Dard e muhabbat buri bala hai o chacha jee Captain Kishore(1957) 4 songs covered out of 7 by now

We can observe that as many as seven movies (out of eight) whose songs were covered in the blog on this date ten years ago (on 2 december 2012) have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with just one movie that is still unYIPPEED and is therefore eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (2 december 2022).

The BTYC eligible movie today is “Captain Kishore”(1957).

“Captain Kishore”(1957) was produced and directed by JBH Wadia for Wadia Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Shashikala, Suresh, Anwar, Naina, Roopmala, Mirza Musharraf, Sheikh, Tuntun, Munshi Munakka, Pakkoo, Shri Bhagwan, Azeem, Mohini, Abdullaa, Korega, Jullian etc in it.

“Captain Kishore”(1957) had seven songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt and female chorus. Khumar Barabankwi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

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

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

5241 Post No. : 17238

Today we celebrate a combined anniversary of two singers. Two singers who were contemporary, two singers who were very good friends, two singers whose voices were considered almost similar. It is the birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt (nee Roy), and the remembrance day of Meena Kapoor.

23rd November – Geeta Ji was born in the year 1930 in Idilpur village (now in Bangladesh), into a zamindar family. In early 1940s, they moved to Calcutta (now Kolkata) and then to Bombay (now Mumbai) in mid 1940s.  The same date in 2017, Meena ji passed away in Kolkata, after some years of illness. She was in Delhi till 2003, the year when Anil Da (Anil Biswas) passed away, and then she moved to Kolkata.

Geeta ji started her singing career in 1945, with the film ‘Aadhaar’ under the music direction of SN Tripathi. Her last released film is ‘Anubhav’ from 1971, and then ‘Midnight’ from 1972, which remained unreleased.

Meena ji started her career in 1946. Two films with her playback singing were released that year – ‘Door Chalen’ under the music direction of KC Dey, and ‘Eight Days’ under the music direction of SD Burman. Her last singing assignment is recorded for the 1965 film ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’, with music by Anil Biswas.

As I thought of writing a combined post for these two singing ladies, I tried to search for a duet sung by them. As per the Geet Kosh, I am able to locate only three duets they have sung. Two of them are already posted here on our blog. The first one is from the film ‘Aadhi Raat’ (1950) – “Main Ne Balam Se Poochhaa Miloge Kahaan”, and the second one is from the film ‘Jalte Deep’ also from 1950 – “Aayi Milan Ki Raat Karo Meethhi Meethhi Baat”. The third duet listed in Geet Kosh is from 1951 film ‘Ghaayal’. The song is “Tera Kisi Pe Aaye Dil…”. This song is not yet posted on our blog. And for good reason. This song is not yet traceable in public domain. The funny thing is that the song on the ‘palat’ (other) side of the record (GE 8739) is very much available – “Dil Toota Hua, Pal Pal Tujhe Pukaare” (singer is Meena Kapoor) and also posted on our blog. But as I started inquiring yesterday evening from my trusted circle of collector friends, all of the replied that this song is somehow not yet available.

But then today late morning, I got information about two other duet songs of this pair, which was very heartening. Just as a side, film ‘Ghaayal’ of 1951 has one other song in which the voices of these two ladies appear. However, this one is a trio song accompanied by GM Durrani. It is a long song, on both sides of the record (no. GE8740) which means it is about 6 minutes long. I was actually preparing to use this trio song for today’s post, but then I got two responses from two dear friends, both sharing information about one duet song each. Very interesting development indeed.

First I got to see a message from dear Gajendra Khanna ji (Bengaluru based) in which he shared info about another duet song. This one is from the 1948 film ‘Hip Hip Hurray’ (aka ‘Chaube ji’) and the song title is “Hum Jaan Gaye Jaan Gaye Jaan Gaye Ji”. The Geet Kosh does not list the singer names for this song. I tried to confirm this information, checking with another dear friend Zafar Bhai (based in Delhi-6), and he sent me the image of the record of this song. The reason that GK does not list the singer names is because the record itself does not carry these names. On checking back with Gajendra Ji, he shared with me the audio of the song, and said that the identification is based on the voices on the track. So we found another duet song.

And then almost immediately Zafar Bhai also responded with an additional song. This turns out to be a NFS duet, that makes it all the more rare. The fact that there are really very rare duet NFS songs (of any pair of singers), being able to locate one with these two voices, which have otherwise also not sung too many songs together, makes is rarer than rare.

I decided to go ahead with this NFS song, and dear Zafar Bhai immediately obliged by posting it on YouTube. All the additional delays that bring this post to almost 9 pm in the evening, are my doing. :D) :D)

The lyrics of this song are from the pen of Madhukar Rajasthani, an eminent poet of his time. Music is from the mind of Vedpal Verma, one of the lesser heard names in Hindi films, who has otherwise a notable portfolio of 70 songs from about a dozen films (this info is till 1980, and there may be more work done by this MD beyond 1980).

The song is a ‘bidaai’ song. A hoary tradition of this land – a song that is sung to bid farewell to a new bride as she starts her journey to a new home, a new family and a new life partner. The words are so wonderfully appropriate. My identification of the voices is that the first stanza is in the voice of Geeta ji and the second stanza is in the voice of Meena ji. I may be wrong, as I am not a good judge of voices. The record label unmistakably carries both names. In case my identification is in error, please let me know and I will make necessary changes.

In the beginning of the song there are a few lines that have been recited by an unidentified male voice. Could it be the poet himself? I cannot say.

Two very beautiful voices, and two very beautiful ladies. Good friends, but singing together only occasionally. Enjoy this very rare treat of an NFS duet song, with lots of thanks to Zafar Bhai for making my day.

 

Song – Jaa Ri Laadli Apne Ghar Ko (NFS) (1952) Singer – Geeta Roy (Dutt), Meena Kapoor, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Vedpal Verma

Lyrics

kaisa milan ye kaisa bichhudna

kaise hain ye meet
goonj raha kaanon mein ab tak
wahi vidaai geet
ja ri laadli apne ghar ko
yaad hamaari karna

bachpan ke sab sangi saathi

bhulat naahin bhulaaye

door kahin wo le ke bansi
baar baar ye gaaye
ja ri laadli apne ghar ko

कैसा मिलन ये कैसा बिछुड़ना
कैसा मिलन ये कैसा बिछुड़ना
कैसी जग की रीत रे
कैसी जग की रीत
दे दी बिदा मोहे हँसते हँसते
दे दी बिदा मोहे हँसते हँसते
कैसे हैं ये मीत
गूंज रहा कानों में अब तक
वही विदाई गीत
जा री लाड़ली अपने घर को
याद हमारी करना
साथ तुम्हारे मेरी दुआएं
फूलो फलो खुश रहना
जा री लाड़ली

ओ ओ ओ
बचपन के सब संगी साथी
बचपन के सब संगी साथी
भूलत नहीं भुलाए
मन छोड़ा बाबुल की नगरी
मन छोड़ा बाबुल की नगरी
तन डोली में जाये
तन डोली में जाये
दूर कहीं वो ले के बांसुरी
बार बार ये गाये
जा री लाड़ली अपने घर को
याद हमारी करना
साथ तुम्हारे मेरी दुआएं
फूलो फलो खुश रहना
जा री लाड़ली

On this date ten years back viz on 23 November 2012, Six songs were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Today’s song is from the film Hip Hip Hurray-1948.

How many of us really know what ” Hip Hip Hurray ” means in reality ? I am sure all of us have used this slogan several times during our school and college days, whenever we were celebrating a victory of our team over the rivals or someone had earned a coveted Reward or an Honour from the authorities. I have used it many times myself, as a victory slogan etc. That was not an age when we cared for the dictionary meaning of popular words or phrases like this one. The colloquial meaning was sufficient for us.

Out of curiosity, I checked a few English dictionaries like the Oxford and the Concise Cambridge dictionary. I found that ” HHH ‘ is a cheer slogan called out to express congratulations towards someone or something. It also denoted appreciation and approval of a victory. ” So much for the meaning of this phrase !

I could not find the story of this film, despite my efforts. There was another film made in 1984 with the same title. That film was based on an Inter-Collegiate Football competition, with a background of a love story of Raj Kiran and Dipti Naval. Then there was also a TV serial, with the same title. It ran from 21-8-1998 to 25-5-2001, with 80 episodes, followed by its second season with 45 episodes , after 15 years.

Anyway, the film Hip Hip Hurray-1948 was produced by Navin Yagnik and Hari Kashmiri, for the banner ‘ Kashmir Films’. The film was directed by Arvind Sen. He had earlier acted in 2 films-Doctor-1940 and Devdasi-1945. Hip Hip Hurray -1948 was his Debut film as a director and he went on to direct another 10 films till Nasihat (1986). His 2 films Muqaddar-(1950) and Kafila-(1952) became successful. They had excellent music also.

The film’s Music Director was Pt. Hanuman Prasad. The name Hanuman Prasad paints a picture of a Pehelwan playing kushti in an akhaada. Guru Hanuman and his akhaada in North India were quite famous. In the late 50s and 60s,there were many Wrestling Championships played in India. Many Pehelwans from other countries also came here to participate. Through these bouts the name of Dara Singh became very famous and later he appeared in Hindi films. The name Hanuman rekindles memories of that era.

However, one would be reasonably surprised if I tell that Pt. Hanuman Prasad ( Sharma/Triloki) was a well known Hindi Film Music Director in the 40s and 50s. Hanuman Prasad was a complete musical package, in the sense that he composed, wrote lyrics ( Gaali, Jasoos, Saudagar and Rasilee) and sung a song also in film( Rasili)-as Sharma. He even directed the film Rasilee-46. Geeta Dutt fans will remember him as the one who discovered her and gave her the first break in Playback singing in Hindi films in 1946.

There were 2 lyricists for 9 songs (actually 11 songs). The 9th song had 3 parts on 2 different records. It was sung by different singers). However, HFGK failed to credit every song with its lyricist’s name. The cast of the film was Balwant Singh, Navin Yagnik, Nirupa Roy, Mangala, Prabhu Dayal, Kumkum, Gulab etc. and a battery of comedians like Dikshit, Bhudo Advani, Radha Kishen and Gope.

Balwant Singh was an actor and a singer. He had no song in this film and from the film ‘Apni chhaya’-1950, with Mohd. Rafi giving him the playback, his singing came to a close.

BALWANT SINGH was born in Pandoga village of Hoshiarpur on 9-12-1918 in a Jahagirdar’s family. He was quite rich. After a training from Pt. Bhishmadev in classical music, he came to Bombay and joined Bombay Talkies at the age of 18 years. He first gave Playback in Jeevan Prabhat-37.In Nirmala-38 he acted and also sang a song. Then came Durga-39 where also he acted and sang. V. Shantaram cast him in Padosi-41 and his songs in this film were hits.

He was Hero in Darpan (1941),Swapna (1942),Malan (1943),Naukar (1943),Paraya Dhan (1943), Ashirwaad (1943), Collegian (1944), Dr.Kumar (1944), Bhanwar (1947,Hip hip Hurray (1948) and Apni Chhaya-(1950) etc. As a hero he sang less songs. His songs with Shanta Hublikar (Malan) and Parul Ghosh and Khan Mastana (Bhanwar) were very popular. He also acted in Nirmala, Vachan and Kangan.

In all, he acted in 18 films, sang 20 songs in 10 films and also wrote 6 songs in the film Sumitra-1949.

He married a girl from the royal family of Palanpur, Gujarat. After leaving films, he worked in All India Radio for 4 years. Then he settled in Ahmedabad, directing Dramas and Teaching music. Finally, he shifted to Ludhiana where, after a long illness, he died on 4-12-1985.

When Balwant Singh worked for A.I.R., it was claimed that he was responsible for the making of the famous morning Signature Tune of the A.I.R., and despite all presentations to several authorities, he was not given the credit for this. His son also claimed this in his interview given to our friend Shishir Krishna Sharma, for his Blog ” Beete hue din”. When I read his interview on the Blog and the You Tube, I wrote to Sharma ji, pointing out to him that this tune was made by the German refugee in India- Walter Kaufmann and NOT Balwant Singh. My E Mail dated 21-4-2021, to him is given here….

Dear Sharma ji,

I visited YouTube and heard your presentation.
I have also read what is written in your post about Balwant Singh on your Blog.
I would like to bring to your notice that it seems this Signature Tune of A.I.R. was NOT made by Balwant Singh,
but by one Walter Kaufmann, when he worked for All India Radio from 1934 to 1946.
There is a book ” THE MUSIC THAT STILL RINGS AT DAWN, EVERY DAWN”
Walter Kauffmann in India, 1934 – 1946
Author – Amrit Gangar
Published by Goethe Institut, Max Mueller Bhavan, Mumbai. 2013

Chapter 3 in this book is THE ALL INDIA RADIO, on page 36.

In this chapter it has been given in detail, with proofs in terms of several letters etc about the signature tune made by him for A.I.R.
There is an interview of the son of Dinkar Amembel, station Director, Bombay AIR, who says that Dinkar had played the Tanpura and
Mehli Mehta played the Violin.

I have this book, gifted to me by the author.

When you come back to Mumbai, you can visit me and see the book entries yourself.
I am fully convinced that the tune was done by Walter Kaufmann only.
It is possible that that is the reason why Balwant Singh’s claim was not entertained ever !

However, for whatever reasons, the said point was neither removed from his Blog nor the YouTube presentation.

Today’s song is sung by 4 singers namely, Geeta Roy, Zohrabai Amabalawali, G.M. Durani and Shamshad Begum. It is a good song. Enjoy….

Ten years back on this date viz on 4th October 2012, six songs from six different movies were covered on the blog. Here are the details:-

One can see that five movies (out of six) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago (4 october 2012). That leaves us with just one movie which is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (4 october 2022).

The movie eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge is “Lakeeren”(1954). The movie was produced and directed by Harbans for Susheel Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nalini Jaywant, Ashok Kumar, Sulochana Chatterjee, Kamal, Pran, Tiwari, Durga Khote,Amir Banoo etc in it.

“Lakeeren”(1954) had 11 songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered so far.

Here is the seventh song from “Lakeeren”(1954) to appear in the blog. HFGK mentions this song as sung by Geeta Dutt and anya swar (another voice). This male voice that sings the first few lines is clearly G M Durrani’s voice.

Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hafeez Khan.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

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