Blog Day : 3972 Post No. : 15058

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 34
——————————————————————————————

Ten years back, 3rd June, 2009, five songs and five films. The films are,

Shart 1954
Return of Mr Superman 1960
Ganga Jamuna 1961
Khoj 1971
Ek Baar Muskura Do 1972

The film ‘Shart’ from 1954 made its debut on the blog with the iconic “Naa Ye Chaand Hogaa Na Taare Rahenge”. In terms of completion, the films ‘Shart’ and ‘Ganga Jamuna’ have been yippeee’d already. The remaining songs of the rest of the three films are waiting in the wings.

Coming of 1960s also saw the waning of the career of music director Anil Biswas. Active in the industry since 1935, Anil Biswas has made a very significant and a lasting contribution to the music of Hindi cinema. A trendsetter in many ways, Anil Da has also been responsible to introduce and groom some of the finest singing voices in the industry.

After two and half decades, in the beginning of 1960s, his body of work was reduced to just a trickle. In 1961, he directs the music for ‘Lucky Number’; in 1962, it is ‘Sautela Bhai’; and after many delays, ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ finally got released in 1965.  And it turns out to be his last film in the industry. He had actually moved to Delhi already, during this time frame (March of 1963) and was working at the All India Radio as the director of the National Orchestra and Chief Producer of the program ‘Sugam Sangeet’.

Today, we revisit one of his lesser known films – ‘Return of Mr Superman’ from 1960. The song is a mujra performance, presented on screen by Heera Sawant. I hope I am correctly identifying the main dancer in this clip. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm or correct me. There are other actors in the audience that can be identified. We can clearly make out David and Rajan Haksar. There is another gentleman with ruffled hair and a large round eyes. I request the readers and friends to please help put a name to this face. Also, there is a trio of supporting singers on screen, who lip sync the chorus lines. Again, the request is to help identify these ladies.
[Ed Note: Prakash ji has identified the “. . .gentleman with ruffled hair and a large round eyes.” as Jagdish Kanwal. Thanks Prakash ji.]

The film is produced and directed by Manmohan Sabir, for his home banner – Manmohan Pictures, Bombay. The film has seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, written by four songwriters – Anand Bakshi, Kaif Irfani, Manmohan Sabir, and PL Santoshi. This song is written by Manmohan Sabir. The music, of course, is by Anil Biswas.

The cast of the film is listed as Jairaj, Sheela Ramani, Helen, David, Naazi, Majnu, Shammi, Ram Mohan, Rajan Haksar, Jagdish Kanwal, Heera Sawant, Nazeer Kashmiri, Mohinder, Saleem Raza, Robert, Gulab, Ramesh, Arvind, Harun, Master Naveen, Krishna, and Funny Walker.

There is one interesting discussion that we have had earlier on this blog, relating to one song purportedly from this film. The song is “Stella O Stella O Stella”. The curiosity about this song is that it has also appeared earlier in the film ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ from 1959. This earlier film also has music directed by Anil Biswas. On our blog, it so happens that this song, as it appears in ‘Return of Mr Superman’ is already posted; and the same song as it appears in ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ has not yet been posted.

I would like to bring to the notice of interested readers, the fact that this song does NOT appear in the list of songs given in Geet Kosh for the film ‘Return of Mr Superman’. The original song, as appearing in ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’, written by Sahir Sb, is the correct attribution of this song. The appearance in the later film ‘Return of Mr Superman’ is simply a repeat use, probably inserted at a short notice to fill a certain scenario. The song certainly does not belong to this later film.

Coming back to the song for today – as one listens carefully, one realizes that this is actually a ghazal that has been presented as a mujra. An interesting variation. I am sure we will find more such instances, if we start looking carefully. Earlier, we have identified a couple of ghazals that has been presented as qawwaalis (and I am sure there are more of such instances also). So now we have another variation – I am sure we will find more cases of a ghazal presented as a mujra. As one listens to the wordings, it is really a very endearing expression –

dil to tujh ko de diya, ab jaan bhi de denge hum
jaan lene se na ab, ae jaan e mann ghabraaiye

So, remembering Anil Biswas – his rememberance day was 31st May, just three days ago. Getting on to another 10 year connect. And getting to listen to this wonderful mujra. . .

Editor note-With this song, Meena Kapoor completes 100th song as a singer in the blog.
