Not many films are made on Kashmir, though Kashmir featured in many films for filming songs etc. In the last 80 odd years, only 5 films have been made i.e. films having the name Kashmir in their titles. As such filmmakers were wary of making films on Kashmir. Being a controversial subject, they knew that the Government would surely ban the films, so as not to displease Pakistan. Thankfully, now the situation is different and films on subjects of national interest and glory are being made freely, without Government’s interference. This is true freedom for the Art. Many politically bold, revealing films, as well as films applauding our Army are being made.

The 5 films having Kashmir in their titles were- Kashmir ki Kali-1946, Kashmir hamara hai-1950, Kashmir-51, Kashmir ki kali-64 and Kashmir Hamara Hai-2001. I doubt if any of these films tackled the political aspect of Kashmir. Looks like our films had central themes of Love stories in the background of beautiful Kashmir. We all know about Shammi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagor’s film in 1964.

Today’s song is from the first film having Kashmir in the title, Kashmir ki kali-1946. An important matter connected with this film is that Geeta Roy (Dutt) sang 2 songs in it. One solo and one duet with someone called Devendra. Readers will recall that Geeta Roy made her singing Debut in film Bhakta Prahlad-1946, by singing in the chorus. So today’s song has the historical value of being her first ever solo playback song. In 1946, she sang in 12 films- an achievement for a singer in her first year of debut. This was an indication that not only the MDs, but also the public had liked her voice and style.

Film Kashmir ki kali-46 was directed by Jagannath Dhar- possibly his only film as a director. Lyrics of the 5 songs were by Matwala Panit and the music was by A. Karim. He was a multifaceted artiste. He acted in 3 films, directed 12 films, wrote 146 songs in 20 films and gave music to 5 films. The cast of this film was Master Vithal. Kavita Devi, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Omkar Devaskar, Kishen etc.etc. As we all know, Master Vithal was the Hero of the First Indian Talkie film ” Alam Ara”-1931, For him, this was his last film in Bombay.

A lot has been said about his inability to speak Urdu dialogues and there is a popular myth, that after ‘Aalam Ara’, he did not get any talkie film and he left the Bombay film industry for Kolhapur to continue his career in Marathi films. Nothing can be farther from truth, because not only Master Vithal was cast as a hero in another talkie film, by Imperial Film Company itself – ‘Anangsena’ (1931), but many other well known production houses like Wadia, Mohan, Pradeep, BK Dave, Ranjit etc. engaged him for talkie films. What’s more, he even sang 3 Hindi songs in the film Bhedi Rajkumar-1934.

However, Master Vithal who was not very comfortable with Urdu dialogues, was no more interested in doing Hindi films anymore, so he did films very selectively. He acted in 8 silent films till 1934 and 15 talkie Hindi films till 1946, in Bombay. He , however, acted in one more Hindi film ‘ Chhatrapati Shivaji”-1952, as it was made in Kolhapur only. His last film in Bombay was Kashmir ki Kali-1946. All this after ‘Aalam Ara’.

Master Vithal is in history books as the first hero of the first Indian talkie film and also has to his credit the introduction of a double role (by Shahu Modak) in a Bilingual film ‘Aawaara Shehzada’ (1933), which he directed (‘Autghatkecha Raja’ in Marathi). Master Vithal himself was the first to do a double role in the silent film,’Prisoner of Love’ (aka ‘Raj Tarang’, 1927), made by Sharada Films.

Master Vithal acted in a total of 92 films – Hindi, Marathi, talkie and silent. He also directed two talkie films – one each in Hindi and Marathi. In one of his interviews, he regretted his decision to shift to Kolhapur in 1946 permanently, as he felt this reduced his Hindi film participation. He had constructed a big chawl in Kolhapur and in his retirement years, he lived on its rental income. He died on 25-6- 1969.

BOMBAY- The Mayanagari, sometimes showed its Maya. It picked up unsuspecting souls and bestowed upon them the fame and a name as Leading actors, singers, Directors ,Lyricists or whatever in films. Thus, a scholarly young man, standing in a bus queue in Madras is picked up and made a Hero of more than 40 films as ” Ranjan”. It also made an onlooker of shooting from the crowds of a studio, the famous and rich Hero of more than 50 films as ” Motilal”. An ordinary Motor Mechanic becomes a well known film Director in various languages and is called ” Sarvottam Badami’. A poor motor mechanic working in a garage becomes an All India famous poet-Lyricist and Producer Director called ” Gulzar.” The same Maya made a casual singer in Hindu Colony,Dadar in Bombay a famous playback singer of repute, when her singing was heard by a passing Music Director Hanuman Prasad, just by chance. She was known later as ” Geeta Dutt”. There are many such examples.

There are many such numbers of ” Accidental Stars’, but the same Maya also scuttled the Golden chances of capable aspiring small timers to become big stars. At Least two glaring examples are known. One is very well known to many, but the other is hardly known to anyone. First case is, Mehboob Khan was almost selected as Hero of India’s First Talkie film ” Alam Ara”-31. Even suitable costumes for him were also made ready, but then Maya played the trick and his name was pushed back, in favour of the more famous Master Vithal, to cover up the possible risk of the failure of the First talkie, which was an experiment. Nevertheless Mehboob Khan became a significantly notable producer, director and studio owner of India.

The other case of how Maya scuttled the chances of fame, name and career of a small-time actor who was on the verge of becoming a big star, is not known to most people. Now, take a look at the cast of today’s film as mentioned in this post. Do you find a name Omkar Devaskar ? Well, this is his story….

Omkar Devaskar was born in 1911 in MP (Central provinces then). After his schooling, he ran away to Bombay to seek employment and got a job as an ‘ Assistant’ in the Imperial Film company. His job was to do any work given to him. The salary was Rs.20 pm. When he saw the film shootings, he had an urge to act in films. One day, he asked Ardeshir sheth about it and he started getting uncredited small roles in silent films.

The Imperial company decided to make a Talkie for the First time in India,mainly because of Dadasaheb Torne (Ramchandra Gopal Torne). It was he who prompted Irani to be the first in India to make a Talkie. Torne was his Manager for both Jyoti studio and Imperial Film Company. Torne was also an agent for Cinema Equipment imported from England and Germany. Torne imported Sound recording equipment and the company sent a German Engineer to explain and teach the technique to Indian technicians.

They first wanted to test the sound recording machine by recording and filming a song. Who would sing ? No one was ready to become the sacrificial goat. Irani saw Omkar and asked him to sing before the machine. A terrified Omkar lamely protested, but he had no choice. Ultimately he was ‘ made up’ and the recording and filming started. Omkar sang a Thumri, ‘ Pyare Rasia Bihari’. Everybody present, including Irani, were stunned with the sweet voice and the ease of his singing style. It came off extremely well. About 500 feet of film was shot flawlessly. Irani was so impressed that he toyed with the idea of giving Omkar the first song in the film Alam Ara. Maya swiftly went into action. Unfortunately the recording was not saved, otherwise it would have been the first film song to be filmed and Omkar the First ever singer actor to do so. But Alas ! This is called the stroke of misfortune ! Destiny had slated this honour for W.M.Khan.

Missing this chance, anyway, Omkar became an actor and singer. His first talkie film was Imperial’s ” Sati Anusuya “-33. He sang 3 songs in the film ” Noor E Iman “-33, besides acting in it. Omkar acted in about 30 films in all. His last film was, perhaps, Rangeeli-52. He sang 14 songs in 6 films. His last song came in the film Jagriti-49. Omkar was a regular actor in many Marathi films too. ( I have used information from Music beyond boundaries by Ashok Ranade and Marathi Cinema in Retrospect by Sanjit Narwekar, MuVyz, HFGK and my own notes, for this write up.)

Now let us listen to Geeta Roy’s first solo song from this film. With this song, the film Kashmir ki kali-1946 makes its Debut on our Blog.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Bahu Beti-1952.

1952 was an year, when resurgent India was trying to organise itself as an Independent Nation. Jawaharlal Nehru had formed independent India’s first Government after the first General Elections. In the film industry also few milestones were reached.

The first ever international Film Festival was organised in Bombay. The fortnightly magazine FILMFARE was launched. A delegation of Indian film personalities visited Hollywood. Two colour films-Aan and Jhansi ki rani (released in 1953) were censored. Pakistan banned import of Indian films after an agitation of Pakistani Film artistes. Bimal Roy shifted his base from Calcutta to Bombay.

Besides this, Radio Ceylon played a major role in popularising Hindi Film Music almost worldwide. Radio Ceylon Hindi service started before 1950. Hamid Sayani, elder brother of Amin Sayani was involved in Radio Ceylon in early days and Binaca Geetmala started from 1952. The announcers of radio Ceylon like Kamini and Vijaya sisters, Vijay Kishore Dubey, Gopal Sharma, Shiv Kumar Saroj, Sunil Dutt, Manohar Mahajan etc were household names. So were towns like Jhumri Talaiyya, Nanded and few others. Radio clubs cropped up everywhere.

Radio Ceylon got the real boost when HFM stopped playing on A.I.R. in 1952.It is popularly believed that the then Minister for information and broadcasting, V.B.Keskar was against film music, calling it Vulgar and that it was he who banned it on A.I.R.

But it is NOT TRUE !

It is true that Keskar was a Purist and disliked Hybrid Music (i.e. HFM ),but he did not ban it. What actually had happened was that A.I.R. announced its revised policy in July 1952 which said,1) Broadcast time for Hindi film songs will be reduced and 2) Dropping the custom of announcing the name of the Film of the song.

IMPPA or The Indian motion Picture producers’ Association was enraged at this loss of free advertisement opportunity for their films and the producers, in their capacity as Copyright owners, took away the A.I.R. ‘s licences for broadcasting film songs. Thus film songs disappeared from A.I.R.,replaced by sugam sangeet and classical music.
(Ref. ‘‘ Mourning the nation: Indian cinema in the wake of the Partition” by Bhaskar Sarkar,pp 57 and .https://www.livemint.com/…/In-1952-Hindi-film-songs-were-ba… )

So, the truth is Keskar did not ban HFM, it was the producers’ association which withdrew licences to AIR, thus forcing them to stop HFM.

We had a very interesting discussion on RMIM forum on this issue, a few years back. Dr.Surjit singh ji , like a magician, produced several old documents which proved that Keskar was NOT the villain, but popularly he was held responsible by one and all.

Radio Ceylon took advantage of the situation and grew very fast starting programmes like Binaca geetmala and Lipton ke Sitare. They did yeoman service to popularise HFM in south east Asia.

Radio Ceylon’s transmitters were powerful and Boosters were installed in India. The famous Mountaineer Edmund Hillary wrote, ” Soon after Conquering Everest, we turned on our Transmitter Radio and the First thing we heard was an Overseas broadcast of Radio Ceylon Hindi service-from more than 3000 miles away ! ”

The year 1952 also saw some of the outstanding musical films and films with some other importance. Scanning the 105 Hindi films that were censored in 1952, we find that the colour film Aan was made in Hindi, English and Tamil language versions. Anand math-first Hindi film of Hemant Kumar had few eternally famous songs by Lata, Geeta and Hemant himself. Aasmaan was the first film of O P Nayyar, from whose soundtrack, Radio Ceylon picked up one of its programme music. Then there was Anhonee. Baiju Bawra-a musical film which opened the doors of A grade films for its lead pair-Meena kumari and Bharat Bhushan, languishing in B and C grade films hitherto.

Film Chamkee for which actress Ragini came all the way from Pakistan, Film Jaal another musical. Jungle ka Jawahir-last film for the yesteryear stalwart composer Madholal master, who was murdered in his flat in Shivaji park, in 1990. Film Maa- first Hindi film of Bimal Roy in his Bombay career part. Naubahar-a Roshan musical and Neelam Pari- Last film for migrator khwaja Khurshid Anwar, MD. Film Saqi,a musical and Sheesha-first film for Kumkum. Shin shinaki Boobla Boo-strange name film featured in the environs of a Far Eastern country. Film Yatrik-a Himalaya trek religious film by Pankaj Mullik, with some outstanding Bhajans and finally film Zalzala-in which Dev Ananad died on screen for the first time ( He never liked the idea,though). The only Next time he died on screen was in Guide-65.

The music of film Bahu Beti was composed by S D Batish. I have a lot of respect for S D Batish,who did a marvellous job of promoting Indian Music in the UK and USA. He is one of those rare people who left the film world, but continued serving the Music,by turning a corner in Life. Such people are few in this world. The monumental work he did for Indian Music in foreign lands is unparalleled. An important point is that he did not do this service to Music for his personal gains. For his sustenance,he had opened a Restaurant in Santa Cruz,California,which was providing him enough for a comfortable living in the USA.

After his death in 2006, an obituary-cum-short life sketch was published in California. I give below its adapted version for our readers-

” Punjabi master S.D. Batish was a pivotal figure behind the western world’s embrace of Indian music, most notably via his memorable contributions to the Beatles’ film Help! Born December 14, 1914, in Patiala, India, Shiv Dayal Batish abandoned a career in the nascent telephone industry to study devotional song, folk drama, and Indian classical music under his guru Hakim Chandan Ram Charan. In 1934, he relocated to Bombay to try his hand at acting, but roles proved scarce and he returned to Patiala two years later, renewing his focus on music. By 1936 Batish was regularly appearing on All India Radio and recording his first sessions for His Master’s Voice. The film industry nevertheless retained its allure for him, and in 1939 he returned to Bombay, working for a spell under broadcasting legend Z.A. Bokhari. After earning his first film work as an assistant musical director in 1942, Batish later graduated to full-fledged Bollywood musical director, in the years to follow working with playback singer greats including Asha Bhosle, Lata Mangeshkar, and Mohammed Rafi as well as writing now-classic songs like the smash “Manmohan Mana Men,” from the 1945 film Kaise Kahoon.

Batish also moonlighted as a playback singer on more than 40 films, among them 1944’s Daasi and 1948’s Barsaat ki Raat, before relocating to Britain in 1964. After accepting a position with the BBC Immigration Unit, Batish became a regular in British radio and television, most notably composing “Nai Zindagi Naya Jivan,” the theme song to the Beeb’s classic South Asian series Apna Hi Ghar Samajhiye (“Make Yourself at Home”). He also returned to his roots as a live musician, performing Indian folk and classical music on the vichitra veena, a long-necked fretless flute. In 1965 Batish was summoned by percussionist Keshav Sathe to record the Indian-inspired incidental music for the Beatles’ second feature film, Help! — the experience also proved the beginning of his lifelong friendship with BeatleGeorge Harrison, who later hired Batish to teach his then-wife Patti Boyd the stringed dilruba. In 1969 Batish assembled wife Shanta Devi, daughter Vijay Laxmi and sons Ashwin Kumar and Ravi Kumar to record North Indian Folk and Classical Music, which for decades remained the lone Indian release to appear on the seminal folk label Topic Records. A year later, the family emigrated to the U.S., settling in northern California and founding a restaurant, the Santa Cruz-based Krishna Café. Although the restaurant business remained Batish’s primary focus for the remainder of his life, he continued playing live and also cut the occasional LP, most notably 1980s Raga Todi, 1985’s Om Shanti Meditation on Dilruba and 1997’s The 72 Carnatic Melakhartas.

He founded “Batish Institute of Music and Fine arts” in California and wrote about 12 books on Indian Classical music,like Ragopaedia,Raga Channels,Rasik Raga lakshan Manjiri etc. He had also founded Batish Recording Co. He was associated with 102 films in Hindi and gave music to 17 films as S.D.Batish,Master Ramesh and Nirmal Kumar. Some of his songs were famous. He died at age 91 on July 29, 2006.” ( adapted from Jason Ankeny’s Bio )

In my memory,the image of S D Batish is etched as a person with a large Fur Cap. Such a type of cap was worn by Shaikh Abdulla and his son Farooq Abdulla. I saw V.Shantaram too wearing that type of cap. Later his son followed by wearing the same ( I mean similar type) Fur cap like father,as if it was a family tradition ! Of late,I have seen the famous film Historian shri Nalin ji Shah with this cap. When I had met him a few years back,he had jokingly said that this cap is his Trademark !

S D Batish was the cousin brother of Pt. Amarnath and brothers Husnlal-Bhagatram,all bore the same surname – Batish.

Out of the 8 songs of film Bahu beti-52, 4 songs are already discussed on the Blog. Today’s song, sung by Geeta Dutt and chorus will be the 5th song. It is a good song to enjoy listening…

Today’s song is from the film Bambai ki Billi aka Wild Cat-1960.

This was a Stunt film, produced by Aspy Irani for his own banner – Super Pictures, Bombay. The film was directed by Zahoor Ahmed. The music was by Khayyam. He was assisted by Bipin and Mehboob. This Bipin was a part of Bipin-Babul duo, who gave music to 12 films together as a team. After leaving Khayyam, Bipin assisted Madan Mohan, where Babul was already an assistant. They joined hands and made a pair of Composers as Bipin-Babul.

Film Bambai ki Billi was an interesting film.This was actually the 3rd film with this title. The history of this film is very amusing..The first film was ‘ The Wild Cat of Bombay aka Bambai ki Billi’ – a Silent film made by Imperial films co. in 1927. Their famous actress-heroine Sulochana (Ruby Meyers) was the film’s Heroine and her Hero was one Jamshed. This film was directed by a novice Mohan Bhavnani, who became a big name in later years.

After Talkie films started, Imperial began Talkie remakes of their famous and popular Silent films and in 1936, Imperial made Bambai ki Billi aka Wild Cat of Bombay. The heroine was the same-Sulochana, but this time the Hero was different- Dinshaw Billimorea. Her earlier film Hero Jamshed was also in this film, but did a side supporting role. This time the film was directed by a veteran Nandlal Jaswantlal.(He became a famous director with films like Nagin and Anarkali in the 50s.). Nandlal had already done a Talkie remake of Indira, BA-a popular silent film as Imperial’s Indira MA. This was with Sulochana and D.Billimoria. Bambai ki Billi-36 was a social film,in which Sulochana had done 8 different roles. The roles were Policeman,Gardener, Gambler, Beggar, Hyderabadi gentleman, Banana Seller, a street urchin and an European Blonde girl. By the way, Sulochana is the only actress in Hindi film world, who acted in 4 remake films having same titles and doing the same roles in all films-silent and Talkie. Her films were Madhuri, Indira MA, Bambai ki Billi and Anarkali.

Besides the interesting history of this film title, the film also boasts of a Director, who was the only person in Hindi film industry who disappeared mysteriously – for ever. The name is Aspy Irani. Film was directed by Aspi Irani,who was basically famous for stunt and C grade films. Aspy Irani was an important director from the early films. His full name was ASPANDIAR HORMUSJI IRANI. He was born in the Parsi colony, Panch Gardens in Dadar, Bombay on 8-10-1911. He started work in the film industry after he completed his secondary schooling and as all Parsis are, due to his hard work, he soon attained a top rank in the Industry. He started directing films from 1936,the early Talkie stage, when the influence of Parsi Theatre, fantasies and dramas on folklore was the staple of stunt films. All such films had a basic structure and with a little changes here and there new films hit the screens.

There was a fixed audience for such films, but as the time went by, slowly the taste of the audience changed. However Aspi Irani continued with his style till the end. He did direct few social films also but the handling of social films had a clear stamp of Aspi’s direction.

He must have directed about 50-55 films till the early 80s. Some of his films were, Naya paisa, qaidi no.911,Barood,Shabnam,Badal etc. He was married to actress Husn Bano ( daughter of actress Shareefa).

On a fine morning on 23rd November 1986,Aspi left his home in the morning for work and never ever returned. No one knows what happened to him. Since then there was no trace of this man and officially he was declared ‘missing since 23-11-1986′. What an end to a legend !

The film cast was Kumkum, Sudhir, Mukri, Nazima, TunTun, Chanda Bai, Nazir Kashmiri, Ashalata etc. etc. The Hero of the film was Sudhir – who died about 7 years ago. He was a small time villain in many big films like Deewar etc. This was his First film as a hero.

Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria (13-4-1931 to 12 May 2014) aka Sudhir was a Bollywood film actor. He was best known for his role in the film Satte Pe Satta with Amitabh Bachchan. He acted in 226 films in a career spanning from 1962 to 2009. He was one of Bollywood’s best known villains from the 1970s through the 1990s.

His first film was Taxi Driver-1954. One gets to see his name appear first time as a male lead in the 1960 Sheikh Mukhtar film ‘Baarood’. And then again in the same year, as the male lead in the film ‘Bambai Ki Billi’. Both films have Kumkum paired opposite to him. In 1961 came the somewhat more appreciated ‘Umar Qaid’, again a Sheikh Mukhtar film, in which Sudhir is paired opposite to a very young Nazima.

In an effort to break into the next level of films, maybe, Sudhir started to work in side roles. He acted in prem patra starring sadhna and shashi kapoor 1962 as Subhash.He appeared in Apna Ghar Apni Kahani (Pyas) opposite Mumtaz in 1968, singing “Jigar me dard kaisa ishko ulfat to nhi kahate” and ‘main ye sochkar uske dar se utha tha’ (Hakeekat), ‘mujhe raat din ye khayal hai’ and ‘mere dil pe andheri sa chhan laga’ from Ek Phool Ek Bhool’.

He often played the second-in-command sidekick to villains Ajit, Prem Nath and Pran, a torturous police inspector, or a sleazy man. He was most known for his shrill voice, long moustache and sideburns. He starred in at least a dozen Amitabh Bachchan movies, such as Deewaar, Kaalia, Majboor, Sharaabi, Satte Pe Satta, Dostana, Shaan and Lal Baadshah.

The 1969 film ‘Mahal’ brought Sudhir in touch with Dev Anand, and thence started an association that would last a lifetime. Starting with ‘Gambler’(1971), Sudhir has appeared in almost every Dev Anand film, whether produced by Navketan or by any other production banner.

Other notable appearances included Feroz Khan’s 1974 hit Khote Sikkay, its sequel Kachche Heere, Dharmatma, as well as Mera Gaon Mera Desh, and roles of a handicapped thief in Dev Anand’s Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971), as police inspector (Special Appearances) in Subhash Ghai’s Meri Jung (1985) and in the Shah Rukh Khan-starring Baadshah (1999). His last film appearances were in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007) and Victoria House (2009). He was also filmmaker Milan Luthria’s paternal uncle. He died on 12 May 2014 at the age of 70. He had long been suffering from a lung infection. (based on information from wiki and an article of Sudhir ji).

The film had only 7 songs. This was a major change in the HFM. Initially, people had a fascination for film songs and hence in the early cinema of the 30’s average number of songs used to be 15 to 20 songs. In the 40s the number came down to about 10 to 12 songs and in the 50’s the number was between 6 to 8 songs. All the 7 songs of this film were written by Hasarat Jaipuri. Two songs are already covered. this will be the third song today.

All the 7 songs were good. The film was a C grade film , but the Music Director was an A grade composer. Enjoy this Geeta Dutt solo song……

ikraar kar lo ji
apna hi maano
apna hi jaano
aankhen chaar kar lo ji

Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (03)
———————————–

My comment on the 900th song post of Geeta Dutt’s songs :

Congratulations on completing 900 songs of Geeta Dutt. Out of the 500 plus songs that remain to covered in the blog, there are many which sound so beautiful. I have made a short list of her duets and solos yet to be posted and it is difficult to decide on one. In fact I wrote down the lyrics of two such song over the weekend.

Like Husnlal-Bhagatram’s songs, I find it difficult to move past an unheard song by Geeta Dutt. Somehow she captivates the listener on first hearing. A truly gifted and versatile artist.

About the diction and singing the words correctly, also she is almost perfect. A case in point is this two version -Geeta and one small Rafi version ‘Lori’ :

https://atulsongaday.me/2020/03/11/so-jaa-re-so-jaa-mere-laal/

This series is about solos and duets of Geeta Dutt, so here is a wonderous soulful solo. If somebody could sound somewhere in between sad and happy, Geeta Dutt would be it. She sounds spirited too at the same time. The moment I heard it for the first time, I wanted to write a post for it.

I have been listening to the song of the previous post too, and keep wondering how that one remained unknown all these decades. While the Talat Mehmood solo from ‘Chhaya’ 1961, having the same tune is a very well-known song.

And now I am thinking, if the tune of this solo also is sounding more familiar than it should. I am not able to pin point if there is another song with similar beat, especially the‘gaaye jaa aa, kuchh gaaye jaa’ bit.

In my previous post I had billed the duets of Geeta dutt with various singers among the posted songs, at below 350. But they would be more than 350. This blog has 521 solos by her posted.

The first solo in this series is the 7th song from the 1949 film “Karwat”. The music director is Hansraj Behl and lyricist is Saifuddin Saif. Present tally of these two in the blog:

Artist Songs posted Total songs
Hansraj Behl 260 62 movies(538)
Saifuddin Saif 1

So, this one is only the second song penned by Saifuddin Saif in the blog. His first song is also from the same movie, so this Poet/lyricist could be a one movie wonder.

Six songs of Karwat(1949) are already posted in the blog:

Song Date posted
Chanda baadal mein baadal mein mukh le chhipa 2 November 2012
Nigaahen milaane milaane ko jee chaahta hai Multiple version song 29 November 2013
Tod ghulaami ki zanjeeren jaage hain insaan 15 August 205
Ek rog laga baithhi main 17 July 2016
Chal diye munh pher kar 28 November 2017

This song is significant for it must have set the tone for the famous club, cabaret, mischievous and teasing songs to come, composed by Music Directors like O P Nayyar and S D Burman and sung by Geeta Dutt. This song too is a gem of a discovery.


Song-Gaa ae dil matwaale jhoom kar saaz uthha le(Karwat)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Saifuddin Saif, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

Gaa ae dil matwaale jhoom kar
saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa
raaten badi anokhi
yeh din bahot niraale
gaaye jaa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

kyun chaand chakor se door
ghataa mein phire akelaa aa
yeh mast jawaani
koyi din ka melaa
aa kisi se aankh milaa le
jhoom kar saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

yeh mast hawaayen kehti hain
milne ki kahaani ee ee
rut beet na jaaye
pyaasi hai jawaani
ik duniyaa nayi basaa le
jhoom kar saaz utthaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

mehek mehek kar
kali kali ko
phool pukaare ae ae
mastaana hawaa mein
hanste hain sitaare
ab dil ko kaun sambhaale
jhoom kar saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

Today 23rd November’2020 is ninetieth birth anniversary of singer Geeta Dutt (born on 23rd November’1930).

She passed away on 20th July 1972 at the age of forty-one only. Reading her life story stirs the heart even today, and the Hindi Film Industry and Hindi Film Music will always feel sad for losing her so early.

Geeta Dutt was one of the legendary singers of yesteryears and sang many for Hindi film, Bengali films. Also, she sang many non-filmy Hindi and Bengali songs.

I will not go into her detailed biography or whatever has been written about her on this blog earlier. And, also, I will not mention her songs which are my favorite and those I like very much. That will be a long list. Today I would only like to pay my tributes to her with a song from an unreleased movie ‘Hamraaz’.

This movie is said to be made somewhere in between ‘1941-1950’.

I had come across songs of this movie in 2014 and had then shared fours songs from this movie to our editors then. At that time the year of this movie was mentioned as ‘1950’ on some links and ‘1940’ on others so it was not clear.

However, somehow the movie remains still to be launched on the blog in the ‘rush’ of other priorities.

When I had initially shared the songs from this movie, I was not having its detailed information, but now with the help of HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950) we can have this brief about this movie.

HFGK Vol-II 91941-1950) lists this movie as ‘Un-released’ movie of ‘1941-1950’.

On page number 607 – Appendix-1 Movie number 1214 this movie is mentioned as presented by ‘Rahnuma Pictures’.
However, its star cast and director is not mentioned. Music director is mentioned as Shankar Lal.
Lyricist names are mentioned as Shyam Hindi and Kamran Momin.
The list mentions total eight songs in this movie.

S. No Song Title Lyricist
01 Ga re manwaa gaa Shyam Hindi
02 Ghoonghat mein sharmaaye dulhaniya Kamran Momin
03 Baat kuchh aisi wah hamse kah gaye Shyam Hindi
4 Cham cham chamken taare Shyam Hindi
05 In do matwaale nainon mein
06 Aabaad hai saraa jahaan Shyam Hindi
07 Khushi chaaron taraf chhaayi Shyam Hindi
08 Aa jaa papeehe geet sunaa re Kamran Momin

Some links of the songs shared earlier are fortunately available but for one song that I shared the link is no longer available now.

As mentioned above today we will listen to a song sung by Geeta Dutt, written by Kamran Momin and composed by Shankar Lal.

With this song the movie ‘Hamraaz (UR)-1941-1950 makes its debut on the blog and joins its ‘ham-naam’ ‘Hamraaz-1968’ 😊 on the blog.

Remembering Geeta Dutt. Let us now listen to the song of today…


Song-Aa jaa papeehe geet suna de (Hamraaz)(UR)(1948) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Kamran Momin, MD-Shankar Lal

Lyrics

aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa
aa ja papeehe
geet sunaa re
ro ro birhan rain guzaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa

yaad kisi ki jab aa jaaye
yaad kisi ki jab aa jaaye
hook uthhe man tadpaa jaaye
hook uthhe man tadpaa jaaye
neer bahaaye nain bechaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa

saajan bairee saara zamaana
saajan bairee saara zamaana
aise mein tum bhool na jaana
aise mein tum bhool na jaana
thhaame jigar ginti hoon sitaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa

jeewan naiyya dagmag dole
jeewan naiyya dagmag dole …

Welcome all to this post where once again I am taking you back to the ‘melodious decade’ or ‘golden era’ years of 1951-1960.

We have this movie ‘Nek Khatoon-1959’ launched on the blog on 19.10.2016 with its song ‘sun le zameen aasmaan ke khuda’ sung by Geeta Dutt.
.
‘Nek Khatoon-1959’ was directed by Pyare Lal for ‘Hind Pictures, Bombay’.

Pyare Lal was also the producer of this movie.

This movie had Chitra, Shah Agha, Hiralal, Indira, Sheikh, Neelofar, Jilani, Maqbul, Fakeer Muhammad, Mohini, Arvind Kumar, Razia, Habib, Kailash, Tiwari Cooper, Altaf, Baby Parveen and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.03.1959.

This movie had seven songs written by Khawar Zaman and composed to music by Jimmy.

As per HFGK Vol-III the songs from this movie are as listed below;

S. No. Song Title Singer Posted on
01 Aayi hoon dar pe tere ban ke sawaali (Part-1) Geeta Dutt
02 Loot le loot le loot le duniya ke maze… chaandi jaise din hain tere sone jaisi raatein
03 Loot le loot le loot le duniya ke maze…Pagley phir na aayengi ye mastibhari bahaarein
04 Maula ab to sun… sun le zameen aasmaan ke khuda Geeta Dutt 19.10.2016
05 Sun le zameen ke aasmaan ke khuda, sun le arey do jahaan ke khuda Geeta Dutt 19.10.2016
06 Aayi hoon dar pe tere ban ke sawaali (Part-2) Geeta Dutt
07 Maulaa ki rahmat se hogi har mushqil aasaan Khan Mastana

While posting the first song from this movie Atul ji had mentioned that

“HFGK mentions two songs (s n. 4 and 5) with similar lyrics but my feeling is that the two songs, going by the lyrics, could be just one song,”

I would like to mention the same for song numbers (2) & (3), that this could be one song together or else we are missing one stanza starting from ‘chaandi jaise din hain tere sone jaisi raatein’ because in today’s song we have one stanza before this stanza ‘pagley phir na aayengi ye mastibhari bahaarein’ and thereafter including this ‘pagley phir na aayengi’ it seems to be almost a full song. So, I guess song number 2 & 3 is one song together.

Also, HFGK did not mention the singer name for the above two songs. However, after listening the voices anybody can identify the singer. All links also identify the singer which is not difficult.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and add one more song to the tally of ‘Nek Khatoon-1959’ in the blog.

I hope you will like this song…

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs …


Song-Loot le Loot le duniya ke maze (Nek Khatoon)(1959) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Khawar Zamaan, MD-Jimmi

Well today we have two movies due for a song in this challenge viz. ‘Shree Ganesh Mahima-1950’ and ‘Roopkumari-1956’.

Ten years back on this day i.e. 12th November 2010 saw as many as five songs posted on the blog. Here is the list of these songs, their movies and the status of these movies on the blog;

Our in-house encyclopaedia respected Arun Kumar ji described the story of this movie in his post Hey Ganesh Jai Ganesh which I am reproducing below;

He has also mentioned that

“Although the title of the film was about Ganesha, most of the film centred around Lord Shri Krishna”.

The story of the film was-

Great and Miraculous power are attributed to Shri Ganesh the benefactor of mortals as well as the immortals. Such a benign being was once laughted at by Chandra only to be cursed by him. Realising his folly Chandra begged her forgivenness and the curse was modified by the merciful divinity to be effective only on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. He ordained that anybody looking at the moon on that day will be a victim of false accusations. It was on such a day that Shri Krishna unwittingly looked at the moon and had to suffer the indignity of being falsely accused of theft of Syamantak Mani. This jewel was acquired by Satrajit, one of the Yadavas as a boon from God Sun. Shri Krishna had sent Narad to Satrajit expressing his desire to possess the Mani. The events took such a turn that there was circumstantial evidence against Shri Krishna who happened to be at the Chambers of Satrajit’s daughter Satyabhama, devotee of Lord Krishna on the night prior to Satrajits losing the Mani. Shri Krishna was shocked at such allegation made by Satrajit and Shatadhanva (Another Yadava) who had been promised by Satrajit the hand of his daughter Satyabhama.

Shri Krishna took upon himself to find out the jewel and redeem it to its rightful owner only to clear himself of the allegation. A search party was organised which came across the dead body of Prasain, a carcass of lion and also the foot-prints of a bear blazing a new trail which when followed led the party to a cave. Shri Krishna went inside the cave telling the followers to wait at the cave entrance for seven days and if he did not return by then, to go back to Dwarka. Inside the cave Shri Krishna found the Syamantak Mani and also Jambuwanti, the daughter of the powerful bear king Jambuwant. There ensued a fight between Shri Krishna and Jambuwant lasting for twenty-one days. The people at the entrance of the cave returned as per instruction after the seventh day. The duration of this fight gave Shatadhanva a real chance for villainy. He puts in an all over effort to win the hand of Satyabhama who would marry none but Shri Krishna. Jambuwant after losing the battle gave away his daughter in marriage and Syamantak Mani as dowry to Shri Krishna.

Coming to Dwarka, Shri Krishna returned the jewel to its rightful owner, Satrajit repented and made amends by giving away his daughter to Shri Krishna in marriage. Shatadhanva came to know of this alliance and made short work of his unsuspecting father Satrajit and decamped with the Mani. Shri Krishna brought justice to the evil doer and the villain Shatachanva fell a victim to his famous Sudershana Chakra.

Arun Kumar ji has written two more posts with songs of this movie and they are;
Surya dev Dinesh hey and Taaron ke palne mein jhoole chaand hamaaraa ho.

Today I am presenting a song from this movie sung by Geeta Dutt (Geeta Roy then).
This lovely melodious song is composed by S.N. Tripathi and it is performed on screen by Meena Kumari.

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song …

Song-Mere nainon mein preet mere honthon pe geet(Shree Ganesh Mahima)(1950) Singer-Geeta Dutt, MD-S N Tripathi

Lyrics

mere nainon mein preet
mere honthon pe geet
mere sapnon mein tumhi samaaye ae
mere nainon mein preet
mere honthon pe geet
mere sapnon mein tumhi samaaye ae

aaj man ki kali
phool ban kar khili ee
chaandni jaise chandaa se hanskar mili
aaj man ki kali
phool ban kar khili
chaandni jaise chandaa se hanskar mili ee
baji murli mohan
baji murli mohan
lagi man mein lagan
meri aasha ne deep jalaaye
mere nainon mein preet
mere honthon pe geet
mere sapnon mein tumhi samaaye ae

hans rahaa hai jeewan
chamki man mein kiran
mere praanon ki jyoti
tumhi ho mohan
hans rahaa hai jeewan
chamki man mein kiran
mere praanon ki jyoti
tumhi ho mohan
meri chanchal umang
nache murli ke sang
man mein preetam ki yaad chhupaaye
mere nainon mein preet
mere honthon pe geet
mere sapnon mein tumhi samaaye ae

Blog Day :

I have mentioned in one of my earlier post here that these days I am looking for movies where only one song has been posted so far. In my daily browsing of the blog while I have already noted some movies, new surprises keep coming e.g. the time-lag between posting of the first song of the movie and thereafter posting of the second song. While we can understand a couple of year time-lag is considerable some have to wait for their second song almost more than five to six years or even ten years as we have seen during posting of ‘blog ten-year challenge song’. Well, if that was not enough, I have found a movie with a song posted in 2008 and still waiting for its second song to be posted on the blog. 😊

In today’s case the movie is ‘Mordhwaj-1952’ and one of its song, namely dagmag dagmag doley naiyya… has been posted on 02.06.2014.

Today we will listen to a lovely melodious song from this movie. This song took almost seven years to get posted after it was noted down. 😊

‘Mordhwaj-1952’ alias ‘Raja Mordhwaj’ (as mentioned in HFGK Vol.III-1951-1960) was directed by Balwant Bhatt for ‘Nav Anand Chitra, Bombay’. It was produced by Mangalanand Gautam and it was passed by Censor Board on 27.10.1952.

This movie had Durga Khote, Prem Adeeb, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Shashi Kapoor, Manju, Nand Kishore, Babu Raje, Urvashi, Raj Adeeb, Leela Mishra, Y.N. Joshi, Sushila, Bindu, Neeru and others.

Music for this movie was composed by Narayan Dutta and all the eight songs this movie has were penned by Bharat Vyas.

Our respected Arun Kumar ji has mentioned in detail about the music director, director and stars of this movie while presenting the first song from this movie viz. dagmag dagmag doley naiyya.

I am presenting herewith details of the songs of this movie as given below;

Lyrics

Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re
Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re

Gun gun bhanware jhoom rahen
Gun gun bhanware jhoom rahen
Kaliyon ka munh choom rahe
Munh choom rahe
Munh choom rahe
Dhaani hain dharti
Neela gagan hai ji
Aaja piya
Dole jiya
Jiya magan hai ji
Boley koyalia kaari
Boley kayalia kaari
Kaari
Kaari re
Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re

Chori chori piya pyaare
Palkon mein tumko
Chhupaa loongi re
Chhupaa loongi
Jaane na paaoge tumhen
Nainon ka kaajal banaa loongi re
Banaa loongi
Matwaari soorat par waari ee
Matwaari soorat par waari
Waari
Waari re
Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re

Painyya padoon sainyya tore
Chhup chhup ke
Mohe sataao naa ji
Sataao naa
Thhandi thhandi chaandni raaton mein
Yoon
Jiyaraa jalaao na ji
Jalaao na
He he he he

Tum jeete sajan main haari
Tum jeete sajan main haari
Haari
Haari re
Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re

आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए
घर आजा मुरारी रे
आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए
घर आजा मुरारी रे

गुन गुन भंवरे झूम रहें
गुन गुन भंवरे झूम रहें
कलियों का मुंह चूम रहे
मुंह चूम रहे
मुंह चूम रहे
धानी है धरती
नीला गगन है जी
आजा पिया
डोले जिया
जिया मगन है जी
बोले कोयलिया कारी

आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए

चोरी चोरी पिया प्यारे
पलकों में तुमको
छुपा लूंगी रे
छुपा लूंगी
जाने न पाओगे तुम्हे
नैनों का काजल बना लूंगी रे
बना लूंगी
मतवारी सूरत पर वारी
मतवारी सूरत पर वारी

आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए
घर आजा मुरारी रे

पैंय्या पडूँ सैंय्या तोरे
छुप छुप के
मोहे सताओ ना जी
सताओ ना
ठंडी ठंडी चांदनी रातों में
यूं
जियरा जलाओ ना जी
जलाओ ना
हे हे हे हे

तुम जीते सजन मैं हारी
तुम जीते सजन मैं हारी
हारी
हारी रे
आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए
घर आजा मुरारी रे
