Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 4
——————————————————————–

कर्मणये वाधिकारस्ते मां फलेषु कदाचन ।
मां कर्मफलहेतुर्भू: मांते संङगोस्त्वकर्मणि ।।
Karmanye aadhikaraste ma phaleshu kadachan
Ma karmaphalheturbhu maate sangostavakarmani

[You have a right to perform your duties but without any expectation.  You have no right to the fruits of your works. Let yourselves be not attached to inaction.]

I used to remember this shloka (verses) during the telecasting of ‘Mahabharat’ on TV. In the recent period, I have once again started recalling this shloka as I find this shloka apt for Atul ji! He has been doing his karma (duties) of posting Hindi film and non-film songs faithfully since the inception of the Blog on July 19, 2008 without expectation of any kind of rewards.

In the sphere of blogging, 10000 posts appearing on one blog on one subject by Atul ji may be a record of some sort. If I take a modest estimate of say 300 words per post, 10000 posts translate to a total words of 3,00,000, that is about half of the word count of the English edition of Leo Tolstoy’s novel ‘War and Peace’. Surely, this milestone is worthy of a grand celebration.

Atul ji started this Blog as one of his interests where he could express his admiration of certain Hindi film songs that he loves. When did his interest turned into a passion? It is not difficult to guess if one goes by the monthly statistics of the songs covered in the Blog. In less than a year from the date of starting this Blog, the daily average number of songs discussed in it, significantly exceeded the original intent of discussing at least one song a day. Now it was not the interest but the passion that was on work.

Over a period of time, the original intent of the Blog to discuss the songs that Atul ji loves has now given room for discussing a much larger canvas of Hindi film and non-film songs. Now the Blog has over 13000 Hindi film and non-film songs. With a paradigm shift to cover all type of Hindi film songs in terms of the number of films as well as the number of films with all songs covered, the scope of the Blog has been considerably widened. With this, the attendant works in maintaining the Blog in terms of accuracy, the mind blowing statistics and some other value additions have significantly increased.

How does Atul ji find time to attend to the Blog work which has become enormous? It is often said that when a person is passionate about his interest, he would find ways to get time and the resources to attend to his passion.  He would not give up his passion irrespective of whether or not he gets motivated and he is appreciated for his work. Of course, motivation and appreciation are tonic for such kind of passion. It is quite admirable that despite Atul ji being a low profile person,  the number of his admirers has been steadily increasing if I go by the comments of appreciations of his monumental work appearing on the Blog and the elsewhere.

Atul ji has always given credit to the contributions of the regular visitors to the Blog as commentators, lyrics providers and guest writers etc whom he calls as his musical bandwagon. This speaks of his modesty. We all know as to how much time he has been devoting and the efforts he has been making to maintain a standard of information on the Blog. A musical bandwagon cannot move and deliver unless it is led by a powerful ‘locomotive’ called Atul Besra.

As a part of the musical bandwagon, I can say about myself that I have interests in Hindi films and non-film songs and about those connected with it. But I do not have passion like Atul ji. Interest can wane over a period of time though after some time, it can also resurface. But passion is perpetual. It is in this context I feel comfortable that the Blog is in the hands of  a person who is passionate about it.

Congratulations Atul ji for achieving a significant milestone of posting your own 10000 posts on the Blog. You have worked very hard to achieve this milestone. You are an inspiration for all of us in pursuing our own passions. More strength to your elbow.

As I said earlier, 10000 posts by Atul ji on the Blog is worthy of a grand celebrations. As per Atul ji’s intention of covering at least one song from the film which is yet to be represented on the Blog, I am presenting a rare song ‘Dil Thha Kabhi Tumhaara Ab Ho Chuka Hamaara’ from the film ‘GAURI’ (1943) sung by Brijmala. The song  is written by Kidar Sharma and is set to music by Khemchand Prakash.

‘Gauri’ (1943) was produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone and was directed by Kidar Sharma. Prithviraj Kapoor and Monica Desai were in the lead roles supported by Shamim, Amarnath, Brijmala, Rajendra, Kamala Chatterjee, Rajkumari Shukla, Raj Kapoor etc. Probably, this may be first film in which  Raj Kapoor acted in an adult role with his father, Prithviraj Kapoor.

This was Kidar Sharma’s second film as a director after joining Ranjit Movietone in 1941, the first being ‘Armaan’ (1942). The story of ‘Gauri’ (1943) was set in Calcutta (Kolkata) and connected with the popular Durga Pooja festival. It was a human relation story around a family of an idol maker of Goddess Durga. The role of the idol maker was played by Prithviraj Kapoor. Monica Desai played the role of Gauri. The film was the 7th highest grossing Hindi films released in 1943.

There were 9 songs in the film which have become rare. Except one song, none of the songs are available on YT. The song under discussion is the second from the film which I have recently uploaded on YT.

Enjoy this lighthearted romantic song with the element of some teasing.


Song – Dil Tha Kabhi Tumhaara (Gauri) (1943) Singer – Brijmala, Lyrics – Kedar Sharma, MD – Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics

dil thha kabhi tumhaara

paa kar mera ishaaraa
paa kar mera ishaaraa
ye lut gaya bechaara
haan haan

jo dil ko na lutaaye
wo preet kya nibhaaye ae ae
jo dil ko na lutaaye
wo preet kya nibhaaye
wo ishq ishq kab thha
wo ishq ishq kab thha
jo husn se na haara
jo husn se na haara
majboor hai bechaara
haan haan
majboor hai bechaara
dil thhaa kabhi tumhaara
dil thhaa kabhi tumhaara

Last week, I came across a rare song from NEK DIL (1948), a film I heard for the first time. The film was produced and directed by G A Thakur under the banner of Light House Productions. Pran and Smriti Biswas were in lead roles with Begum Parveen, Ramesh, Nazar, Saleem Raza, Durga Mota, Zubeida etc in the supporting role. The film was produced in Lahore and it was stated to be belonging to the social genre.

Today, April 12th 2017 is the 107th birth anniversary of one of the earliest multi-talented film personalities who, despite being a post-graduate in English literature, started his filmy career as a painter and a still photographer in New Theatres, Calcutta in 1933. With sheer hard work and talent, he rose to become the screenplay and dialogue writer and lyricist within a year. In about 5 years from joining the film industry, he became a director. He was Kedar Nath Sharma, better known as Kidar Sharma (12/04/1910 – 29/04/1999).

Wadia Brothers’s (JBH Wadia and Homi Wadia) last silent film was ‘Toofan Mail’ (1932) which was released after sound films came into being.  As far as I know, the first sound film with a prestigious train name was also ‘Toofan Mail’ (1934) produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone. This was probably the first action-adventure-stunt film with a title of the film after a prestigious train which became a huge box office success.

Today, February 21st 2017 is the 26th Remembrance Day ( I, feel it is better to call it Remembrance Day than calling it death anniversary) of Nutan, one of my favourite actresses. The first film of her which I saw in a theatre was ‘Milan’ in 1967. Thereafter, I had watched her black & white films when they were telecast on Doordarshan sometime in the early 80s. I am sure, many readers would agree with me that Nutan, through her intense acting, made us to ponder over the some of the social issues raised in films like ‘Seema’ (1955), ‘Sujaata’ (1959), Bandini’ (1963), ‘Saraswatichandra’ (1968) etc.

It is a well-known fact that when sound films came into being in 1931, majority of the films which were produced, especially in the 1930s, belonged to the genres of action, adventure, costume drama, mythology, fantasy, folk legend etc. There were few takers for films containing social, family drama and romantic themes. In a way, this was the legacy from silent films. Those who produced and directed silent films may have thought it prudent to try more or less the same genres in sound films to begin with.

Behzad Lucknowi was one of many Urdu poets who entered Hindi film industry in the 1930s. However, in my view, he was also one of the least visible poet-lyricists among those who had spent over a decade in the Hindi film industry in the 1930s and 1940s. Some of his high quality ghazals like zinda hoon iss tarah ki gham-e-zindagi nahin, tumhaare bulaane ko jee chaahta hai, rehne laga hai dil mein andhera tere baghair are still remembered today. Most listeners of these ghazals would identify these songs with Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar and Begum Akhtar, respectively, as it so often happens in case of popular Hindi film songs.

In my last write-up kyun dil mila hamaara tumhaara jawaab do, I had discussed the confusion about ‘Kalyanis’- Kalyani Bai, the actor-singer and Kalyani Das, the playback singer. I had also mentioned therein that their distinct voices help listeners distinguish between the two. The song I had presented in that write-up was sung by Kalyani Bai. I was toying with the idea of presenting a song sung by Kalyani Das immediately after my last write-up. I had already identified her song from ‘Manmaani’ (1947).

I used to get confused among singers where the name of the singer was mentioned as Kalyani or Miss Kalyani. Some songs were also accredited to Kalyani Das. Are they all the same or are they different singers? It was only after reading the interview of Kalyani Bai (Real name: Zarina) which appeared in Shishir Krishna Sharma’s Blog ‘beetehuedin’ some time in 2012 that I could differentiate between songs accredited as ‘Kalyani’ or ‘Miss Kalyani’ between Kalyani Bai and Kalyani Das. In our Blog, the songs sung by Kalyani Bai has been tagged as ‘Kalyani’ whereas songs sung by Kalyani Das have been tagged as such. So there is no same name confusion in the Blog for both the singers.
