Today’s song is from a lesser known film ‘Pehla Pehla Pyar’ (1958).  Made by National Cine Corporation, it was produced by Daljit and directed by the veteran Nanubhai Vakil.

As we all know, in the early era of films – both silent and talkie, many actresses came from the traditional singing families (read tawaiafs). Average to good looks and ability to sing tolerably were their main qualifications. Many of these girls joined film line for two reasons. One – it gave them name, fame and money and the more importantly second – they tried to catch a big fish to marry. Many of them succeeded in this and we can see many examples of such marriages and live-in relationships of these girls in the film line. Gujarati producers and directors were in the forefront in this matter.

Thus we saw the first heroine of the talkie film, Zubeida marrying Raja Dhanrajgir of Hyderabad, who would camp in Bombay and attend all her shootings. Even her mother Fatima had married the Nawab of Sachin (Gujarat), who was very fond of films. Then, the other actress named Zubeida (of the late 40s – on whose life the film ‘Zubeida’ (2000) was made) married Raja Dhanvant Singh of Jodhpur – who used to follow her like a shadow. Then we have Sohrab Mody and  Mehtab, Sardar Chandulal Shah and Gauhar Mamajiwala, Nanabhai Bhatt and Shireen (parents of Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt), Ramnik Lal and Indurani (real name Ishrat Jehan), Anil Biswas and Mehrunnisa Bhagat aka Ashalata, Shamshad Begum and Ganpatrao Batto, Nanubhai Vakil and Sarojini aka Roshan aka Ranee, Gauhar Karnataki and Bal Gandharva, Amirbai Karnataki and Badrinath Kanchwala etc.  This is only an indicative list to support the assertion.

Gujarat has enriched the Hindi film industry more than any other state, by providing producers and directors. Though the industry was based in Maharashtra, it generally provided actors, actresses and composers in the early era, but not the producers. Obviously money and tremendous hard work was the hallmark of Gujarati community. The Shahs, Desais and the Bhatts, along with other people have enriched various aspects of the industry like film direction, film production, cinematography and studio management. They provided employment to thousands and gave opportunities to the capable. One such person was Nanubhai Vakil.

There was a time when so many people from Valsad region of Gujarat came to films. Nanubhai was also born in Bulsar (Valsad) on 24-12-1904 (as per IMDB). Originally a Desai from Bulsar, Nanubhai’s father was a lawyer. Nanubhai studied in Wilson College, Bombay and earned the degrees of BA and LLB. He became a lawyer, but never practised. Instead he joined films in 1926. In his 45 years career he directed 20 silent films and 70 talkie films.

His speciality was mainly action stunt films, costume dramas and fantasy films. His star cast used to be  Bilimoria, Ishwarlal, Shanta Kumari, Putli, Madhvi etc. for silent films and artistes like Sarojini, Indurani, Navinchandra, Rafiq, Prakash, Gulnar, Daljit, Chitra worked in his Talkie films. It is not that he did not use other artists. Zubeida, Yakub, Jal Merchant, Jaddanbai, Shanta Hublikar, Nimmi, Veena, Jairaj, Shakeela, Nirupa Roy, Nadira, Mehmood etc. also worked in his films.

He was a daring person and gave gave opportunities to many people. He made Sarojini  a Heroine in many of his films. Zubeida too got many roles with him. He helped AR Qureshi (tabla expert Allah Rakha, the father of tabla maestro Zakir Hussain). Amirbai Karnataki was given many roles by Nanubhai. SD Burman sang his first Hindi film song in Nanubhai’s film ‘Taj Mahal’ (1941). Juthika Roy sang  in his film ‘Lalkar’ (1956). Kaifi Azmi wrote stories for his films.

He was a director, writer and producer too. He produced 6 films. ‘Hatimtai Ki Beti’ (1940) and ‘Hatimtai Ki Beti’ (1955), both were directed by him (the ’55 film was also produced by him). He made ‘Alam Ara’ twice – in 1956 and 1973. He took Wazir Mohammed Khan in both versions and even made him sing the original Alam Ara’s song,”De De Khuda Ke Naam” again, in both the films.

He directed the first Gujarati talkie film ‘Narsi Mehta’ in 1932, made by Sagar Movietone. He remade most of his silent films as talkie films. He made 17 films with Mohan Studios. Nanubhai had married Sarojini (real name Roshan aka Ranee). Sarojini and Nanubhai’s daughter Azra also became an actress. Her role in debut film ‘Love in Shimla’ (1960) was much acclaimed.

Nanubhai Vakil had remained ‘vakil‘ (lawyer) only in name. He died on 29-12-1980.

The music for this film iwas given by composer BN Bali. He was one of those small time composers, who got only the B and C grade films. First of all, let us find out who this BN Bali is. In the early era of Hindi films, there was another composer Bali. HC Bali or Harish Chandra Bali (20-3-1906 to 24-6-1976), the expert classical singer who became a successful composer, is credited with discovering KL Saigal in the early 1930s. HC Bali gave music to his last film ‘Janata’ (1947) (in this film Vijaya Das had acted. Later, she married Satyajit Ray). He died on 24-6-1976, after a long retirement from films, for almost 30 years.

BN Bali or Baldev Nath Bali, too was a good singer. He was a composer restricted mostly to religious and low budget films. His career starts with the film ‘Bedard’ (1949) and he is active up to ‘Do Dilwale’ (1973), a total of 24 films, including one unreleased film ‘Bahut Door’ (1940s). He also gave music to a Haryanvi film in 1973. Though he composed music with a lot of variety, somehow he lacked what it takes to make it to the big league. And, he is known for copying the popular tunes of other composers blatantly. Some examples –

“Jab Un Ka Khayal Aata Hai”- sung by Rafi in ‘Pehla Pehla Pyaar’ was a copy of Rafi’s “Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai” (‘Raat Ki Rani’, 1949) by Hansraj Behl.

“‘Sapne Mein Saiyaan Tum Aaya Na Karo” – an Asha-Manna Dey song from ‘Flying Rani’ (1959)  is a close copy of OP Nayyar’s “Ek Pardesi Mera Dil Le Gaya” from ‘Phagun’ (1958).

“Tu Uska Kar De Bhala” sung by Rafi in ‘Raja Vikram’, carries the same “Bhagwaan” tune as in “O Duniya Ke Rakhwaale” etc.

BN Bali’s following two songs are absolute Gems – “Mujhko Sanam Tere Pyaar Ne Jeena Sikha Diya“, an Asha – Manna Dey duet in ‘Flying Rani’ (1959); and the Mukesh song “Ae Duniya Ke Maalik Tu Bataa” from ‘Baghdad Ka Chor’ (1955).

Today’s song is sung by Geeta Dutt and chorus. It is a Rock N Roll dance song. 1955 to 1960 was a period when Rock N Roll music played havoc in Hindi films. Most MDs composed songs based on this this music. Some famous Rock N Roll songs like “Laal Laal Gaal” from ‘Mr X’ (1957), “Mister John Ya Baba Khan” from ‘Baarish’ (1957), “Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu” from “Howrah Bridge’ (1958) and many such songs brought the craze and then almost every alternate film had a song like this. Music is such a thing that it catches on very fast from continent to continent, country to country and people to people. Actually Rock N Roll music began long back, somewhere in 1951 or so. Elvis Presley in vocal and Bill Halley in instrumental made it into a people’s craze. But it took quite some time to to influence the traditional Indian people.

For such songs, the voice and style of Asha and Geeta were most suitable. In fact, most such songs are to their credit. Lata Mangeshkar – the self proclaimed purist, kept herself away from such songs. However, there is one incident worth telling here. most people will find it new.

Film ‘Chacha Zindabad’ (1959) was produced and directed by Om Prakash, the comedian. MD was Madan Mohan. On the insistence of both Lata sang a Rock N Roll song for this film and it was recorded also. But Lata was very much disturbed and uneasy after this. She felt it was a blot on her singing career image. She had very close and homely relations with both Om ji and Madan ji. She treated them as her brothers. Before the film was completed, the Rakhi Festival came. Like every year, Lata went to Om ji’s house to tie the Rakhi. After the ritual was over, she asked him, “As a sister, if I ask you some gift, will you give me ?”  Om ji quietly said, “I will stake my life to give you what you ask for. Just tell me.”

Lata coolly asked Om Prakash to remove that song from his film. Without any hesitation, Om Prakash not only removed the Rock N Roll song from the film, but also the recording was destroyed, despite the expenses incurred !. That is why that song is not available unlike many other ‘ removed’ or ‘ excluded’ songs available from other films. (From the book ‘चित्रपट संगीताचा सुवर्ण काळ’, लेखक –  इसाक़ मुजावर).

Ok, now enjoy this rocking tune song by Geeta Dutt. Don’t forget, it is composed by BN Bali- you may have heard this tune somewhere !

“Missing the beloved” cum “separation” song form quite important genre of songs in Hindi movies. This blog has close to three hundred songs that fall under this category of “missing the beloved”.

In such songs, it is the lady who is mostly missing her beloved. She tends to miss him the most in the season of “Saawan”. She tends to miss him more in the late hours that say during the day hours.

In olden days, the feeling of “missing” the beloved was more complete that what it is today. Those days, keeping in contact with the beloved was rather difficult. One could send letters but that was a time consuming process and in most cases one was not even sure of getting a reply.

These days, keeping in contact with one’s beloved is so easy. We all have our mobiles and we can keep in contact with our near and dear one’s almost on a regular basis. So, I must say that technology has made separation of one’s beloved rather more bearable these days.

Just think of the past when the luxury of instant communication with others was not avaialble even for the mightiest. Under such circumstances, singing a song of the relevant genre was one of the ways of bearing the separation.

Here is a “missing the beloved” genre of song from “Nakhre”(1951).

“Nakhre”(1951) was produced by Mohanlal Wahai and directed by Surya Kumar for Paro Pictures, Bombay. This by now forgotten movie had Geeta Bali, Nasir Khan, Jeewan, David, Heera Sawant, Vijaya, Badri Prasad, Ramesh, Laxmanrao, M S Pathak, Paro etc in it.

There were ten songs in this movie that were sung by eight singers and penned by four lyricists. Three songs from the movie has been discussed in the blog. The song under discussion is the fourth song from “Nakhre”(1951) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

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.


Song-Andhiyaari kaari raat mein (Nakhre)(1951) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

baadarva rim-jhim barse
mera jiyara tum bin tarse
baadarva rim-jhim barse
mera jiyara tum bin tarse
tum door wahaan
majboor yahaan
main baithi aas lagaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

barsaat ki in raaton ko
tarsoon main mulaakaaton ko
barsaat ki in raaton ko
tarsoon main mulaakaaton ko
bas ye falak dikhla ke jhalak
koi man ki pyaas bujhaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

is baadal hi ke bahaane
aa jaao to hum jaanen
is baadal hi ke bahaane
aa jaao to hum jaanen
hui kab ki khadi
ginti hai ghadi
aur ghadiyaan beeti jaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

“Dr Shaitaan”(1960) was produced by Ram Kumar and it was directed by Shriram Bohra for Bohra Brothers production, Bombay. The movie had Premnath, Shakila, Sheikh Mukhtar, Sunder, Tiwari, Sheikh, Helen, Nasreen, Nazi, Indira, Ramkumar, Rajan Kapoor, Ramlal, Mahendra, Maqbool, Mirajkar, Kamaol Sharma etc in it.

This movie was a crime thriller. It had six songs in it. Three of these songs have been discussed in the past.

I notice that all the songs in this movie were “western” songs as befitting a crime movie of 1950s.

Here is the fourth song from “Dr Shaitaan”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. N Datta is the music director.

Only the audio of this song is available. Listening to this song, most people will guess this song to be an archtypical Helen bar dance song on the lines of “mera naam chin chin choo”.

Helen is very much there in the cast, and so I guess that this song must have been picturised on her. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Na na na na na na ab na aa ke jaana (Dr Shaitaan)(1960) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-N Datta

Remembering Geeta Dutt.

She passed away 45 years ago on 20th July in 1972, brining to close a tumultuous and tragic life, all of 41 years. A voice that held so much promise, and yes, she gave too, so many wonderful gems to remember her by. Just going by the numbers – the decade of 1950s carries close to 850 songs sung by her. And then, in the 1960s, she has recorded less than hundred. And the majority of them belonging to the first half of the decade.

Emotional stability and personal circumstances have such big impact on the performance and output of an artist. It is difficult, and even unfair, to comment on a artist’s portfolio of work, trying to juxtapose it against the personal ups and downs. But in some cases, it stands out quite starkly. The 1950s were the heydays for Geeta Rai, later to be Geeta Dutt, when she married Guru Dutt in 1953. But then, subsequently, a film maker’s life became an impediment in the relationship. Both spouses are artists and creators par excellence, and based on what is written about them, also very sensitive individuals. Thankfully, both are non-compete. And yet, the personal affairs, and the airing of these personal matters in public and media, took a heavy toll of personal energy and emotions, impairing to an extent, their abilities to perform.

In early 1960s, we see a slowdown in Geeta’s output. And then, the tragedy strikes – come 1964 and Guru Dutt is no more. The devastation that descends on Geeta is visible simply from the quantum of her artistic output. Especially in the latter half of 1960s, the songs by her are reduced to a trickle, with just a handful being recorded each year.

The decade turns into 1970s. Just one released film ‘Anubhav’ (1971) with a set of three superb renditions. For a moment, the media, the industry watchers and the listeners, are all agog. The expectations rise once again; here a comeback seems to be in the offing. But then a more tragic news follows almost immediately. She herself is gone; just in 1971 itself. A brilliant blaze that is gone in a flash. The world would no more hear any new songs in her voice. And the songs of ‘Anubhav’ – three recordings that are so full of life, are so reminiscent of the Geeta of 1950s – these become her swansong, so unfortunately. Speculations is all that remains.

For today’s remembrance I am able to pull out this touchingly poignant rendition from one of her very early films, not easily remembered and not easily available. The year is 1947. The industry and the listening public has already stood up to the vibrant sounds of ‘Do Bhai’ that have been rendered under the baton of SD Burman. In the same year, the film ‘Jadui Ratan’ was released. And this new voice of a young girl of 16 is taken up by Chitragupt, another relatively newcomer in the industry, for this film. The film is produced under the banner of Kismet Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Natwar Shyam. Chitragupt had young Geeta Roy sing two duets and one solo song in this film.

I am presenting today the solo song – “Rut Badal Gayi, Wo Taraana Badal Gaya”. Geet Kosh lists two songwriters for this film namely Behzaad and Kamlakant. However, the assignment of specific songs to individual songwriters has not been made.

A tender and touching melody from seventy years ago, sung by a young girl of 16 at the time of recording. Listen to this beautiful rendition, and marvel at the emotive potential this voice carried, at that young an age.

 

Song – Wo Rut Badal Gayi Wo Taraana Badal Gaya  (Jadui Ratan) (1947) Singer – Geeta Roy, Lyrics -[Unattributed], MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

ye keh ke phir guzar gayi
fasl e bahaar bhi
phoolon mein tha jo apna thikaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

main kis tareh sunaaun
tumhen dastaan e dil
main kis tareh sunaaun
tumhen dastaan e dil
aankhon mein ashq aaye
fasaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

kumhla chuke hain phool
sitaare udaas hain
kumhla chuke hain phool
sitaare udaas hain
ab intezaar ka bhi
zamaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

ये कह के फिर गुज़र गयी
फस्ले बहार भी
फूलों में था जो
अपना ठिकाना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

मैं किस तरह सुनाऊँ
तुम्हें दास्तान ए दिल
मैं किस तरह सुनाऊँ
तुम्हें दास्तान ए दिल
आँखों में अश्क आए
फसाना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

कुम्हला चुके हैं फूल
सितारे उदास हैं
कुम्हला चुके हैं फूल
सितारे उदास हैं
अब इंतज़ार का भी
ज़माना बादल गया

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

Today (20 july 2017) is the 45th remembrance day of Geeta Dutt (23 november 1930-20 july 1972). By that time, she had achieved so much in her chosen field of activity that she was assured of being counted among HFM legends. It is easy to forget that she was just 41 when she passed away. That way, she was one of those who departed for their heavenly abode quite early, yet achieved a lot in their fields and became legends. Some other such names that come to mind are Guru Dutt (her own spouse), Jaikishan, Shailendra etc.

As a tribute of Geeta Dutt, here is a song from “Aahuti” (1950) aka “Anokhi Qurbaani”. This movie was directed by Kulbhushan for Sansaar Movietone Limited, Bombay. It had Mumtaz Shanti, Ranjeet Kumari, sapru, Premkant, Kesari, Bikram Kapoor, Cuckoo, Nautiyal, Sudhir, Pitu, Khan Chaand, Mukul, Ratan Gaurang, Bhajanlal, Shyama, Krishna Rani, Neelam, Indra, Indubala, Uma, Gulnar Shirazi, Kathana etc in it.

This song, the second (out of twelve songs) to appear in the blog, is sung by Geeta Dutt. Tandon is the lyricist. Music is composed by D C Dutt.

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


Song-Dil jo tumko de diya (Aahuti)(1950) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Tandon, MD-D C Dutt

Lyrics

ho
dil jo tumko
ho dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya
dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya

khata yahi hui ke nazar tumse mil gayi
itni si baat badh ke kahaani si ban gayi
kisko bura kahen jo chain khud hi kho diya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya
dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya

pahle to dil lagaane ko samjhe thhe kuchh nahin
samjhe thhe kuchh nahin
ab haath mal rahe hain ke dil kho gaya kahin
dil kho gaya kahin
hamne ganwaaya dil
hamen dil ne ganwa diya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya
dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya

kehna main dil ka maan ke badnaam ho gayi
jitni chhipaayi preet tumse utni khul gayi
jo kah saki na munh se wo aankhon ne keh diya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya
ho dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya

हो दिल जो तुमको
हो दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
हो दिल जो तुमको
हो दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया

खता यही हुई के
नज़र तुमसे मिल गयी
इतनी सी बात बढ़के
कहानी सी बन गयी
किसको बुरा कहे
जो चैन खुद ही खो दिया आ
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
दिल जो तुमको
दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया

पहले तो दिल लगाने को
समझे थे कुछ नहीं
समझे थे कुछ नहीं
अब हाथ मल रहे हैं के
दिल खो गया कहीं
दिल खो गया कहीं
हमने गंवाया दिल
हमें दिल ने गंवा दिया आ
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
दिल जो तुमको
दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया

कहना मैं जिस का मान के
बदनाम हो गयी
जितनी छिपायी प्रीत तुमसे
उतनी खुल गयी
जो कह सकी न मुंह से
वो आँखों ने कह दिया आ
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
हो दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
