फिर तेरी याद नए गीत सुनाने आई. . .

Yes, everyday. It seems there is a new song that you have sung for us, once again. Remembering you, everyday.

– – – –

Well, if the film name is ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’, it would not be a coincidence that this film is by Bhagwan Dada. Today’s song in this series is from this 1961 film.

The phenomenal success of the film ‘Albela’ (1951) and its songs, prompted Bhagwan Dada to try and replicate that success many times over the next few years. But sadly none of the spin offs really came any close to repeating the success of the original. As I try to trace the career path of Bhagwan Dada as a producer, after the film ‘Albela’ in 1951, he went on to produce and direct the following,

  • ‘Jhamela’ in 1953, with Geeta Bali in female lead and music by C Ramchandra
  • ‘Rengeela’, also in 1953, with Poornima in female lead and music by Jamaal Sen
  • ‘Halla Gulla’ in 1954; Shakila and Sajjan are the lead pair and Bhagwan is playing second lead; music by Nisar
  • ‘Pyaara Dushman’ in 1955; Jairaj and Nadira are the lead pair and Bhagwan is playing second lead; music by Nisar
  • ‘Bhaagam Bhaag’ in 1956; Kishore Kumar and Shashikala are the lead pair and Bhagwan is playing second lead; music by OP Nayyar
  • ‘Kar Bhala’, also in 1956; interestingly this film is also listed as a stunt film; Shashikala and Nasir Khan are the lead pair; music is by Chic Choclate
  • And then, ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ in 1961; Suresh and Radhika are the lead pair and music is by Nisar.

Starting with ‘Albela’ and up to ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’, all films listed above are produced and directed by Bhagwan Dada. After ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’, we do not find any more films being produced and directed by him. The magic of ‘Albela’, sadly could never be recreated.

I must make a note that Bhagwan Dada had directed his first film way back in 1938 (as a co-director for ‘Bahadur Kisan’), and turned a producer in 1942. He set up Jagruti Pictures as his production company, and produced and directed many stunt films. In 1947, he also set up his own Jagruti Studio. ‘Albela’ was the mega moment of his career. But after that, it was downhill all the way. ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ was, in a manner of speaking, a last attempt.

The star cast of ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ is listed as Suresh, Radhika, Anwar, Bhagwan, Poornima, Suryakant, Pratima Devi, Kesri, Prem Sagar, Shyam Lal, Vishwas, Baburao, Ram Bharose, Cukkoo and Helen. Geet Kosh lists seven songs for this film. Names of three songwriters are listed – Shyam Hindi, Saba Afghani and Tavish Mehmood. However, songwriter names are not assigned to individual songs, except one. Songwriter name for this song is not attributed. The person who has uploaded this song on YT has indicated the name as Tavish Mehmood.

Music for all the songs is by Nisar, a name that is same as Nisar Bazmi. The singing voices in this song are of Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur.

Lyrics 

shamma pe parwaana jalne se darta nahin
shamma pe parwaana jalne se darta nahin
jaan chali jaaye magar bachke guzarta nahin
shamma pe parwaana jalne se darta nahin

yun to garajte hain sabhi kaun barasta hai
kaun barasta hai
baaten banaane ka yahaan bas yahi rasta hai
bas yahi rasta hai
ho oo oo oo oo
marne ka kehte hain magar. . .
marne ka kehte hain magar
koi bhi marta nahin
shamma pe parwaana jalne se darta nahin

jaan mein toofaan ko kahaan laate hain dilwaale
laate hain dilwaale
khelte maujon se guzar jaate hain dilwaale
jaate hain dilwaale
ho oo oo oo oo
darr ke jo ruk jaaye kabhi. . .
darr ke jo ruk jaaye kabhi
paar utarta nahin
shamma pe parwaana jalne se darta nahin

aaj se hum tere huye chaahe koi roke
chaahe koi roke
hum ne jo chaaha tha wohi baat rahi ho ke
baat rahi ho ke
ho oo oo oo oo
dil se agar dil na miley. . .
dil se agar dil na miley
pyaar sanwarta nahin
shamma pe parwaana jalne se darta nahin
shamma pe parwaana jalne se darta nahin

शम्मा पे परवाना जलने से डरता नहीं
शम्मा पे परवाना जलने से डरता नहीं
जान चली जाये मगर बचके गुजरता नहीं
शम्मा पे परवाना जलने से डरता नहीं

यूं तो गरजते हैं सभी कौन बरसता है
कौन बरसता है
बातें बनाने का यहाँ बस यही रस्ता है
बस यही रस्ता है
हो ओ ओ ओ ओ
मरने का कहते हैं मगर॰ ॰ ॰
मरने का कहते हैं मगर
कोई भी मरता नहीं
शम्मा पे परवाना जलने से डरता नहीं

जान में तूफाँ को कहाँ लाते हैं दिलवाले
लाते हैं दिलवाले
खेलते मौजों से गुज़र जाते हैं दिलवाले
जाते हैं दिलवाले
हो ओ ओ ओ ओ
डर के जो रुक जाये कभी॰ ॰ ॰
डर के जो रुक जाये कभी
पार उतरता नहीं
शम्मा पे परवाना जलने से डरता नहीं

आज से हम तेरे हुये चाहे कोई रोके
चाहे कोई रोके
हमने जो चाहा था वही बात रही हो के
बात रही हो के
हो ओ ओ ओ ओ
दिल से अगर दिल ना मिले॰ ॰ ॰
दिल से अगर दिल ना मिले
प्यार सँवरता नहीं
शम्मा पे परवाना जलने से डरता नहीं
शम्मा पे परवाना जलने से डरता नहीं

Missing Films of 1960s – 91
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yet another obscure and unfamiliar film from 1970.  The film is ‘Khooni Saaya’. Just as the name suggests, this is a stunt film – I am sure an effort to make a chilling crime thriller. What became of it, we have no idea.

The film is produced under the banner of Jayant Films, Bombay and is directed by A Zahoor. The star cast is quiet a mix of unknown, unfamiliar names, with just a few familiar names. The list reads as Hercules, Rozeena, Ratan, Azad, BM Vyas, Habeeb, Dhanraj, Tara, Yusuf, Sabir, Babejani, Qamarjani, Master Zuber, Master Latif, Fazal Khan, Khurshid Khan, Julian, Musachina, Master Roshan, Fazlu, Ramzan, Manju, Aruna, Indira Bansal, and Sheikh.

The Geet Kosh lists 4 songs for this film. The music director is identified as Kamal Kant – an unfamiliar name. However, when I check out blog lists, one song of this music director is already present here. That song is from a film from 1983. As I check the Geet Kosh, I can locate 4 films with music by Kamal Kant, between the years 1970 and 1980. Besides this film, the other films are all mythological. Then the 1983 film ‘Kaun Hai Wo’ seems to be another cops and robber story.

The lyricist’s name is equally unfamiliar – Azeez Jamaali. Geet Kosh shows his name in one film from 1955, and then just this film in 1970. His name appears in our blog for the first time today.

The four songs listed have been released on 2 gramophone records. As I check for the availability, I find that just one record, i.e. two songs, have so far surfaced in the public domain. Checking with other collectors, I am drawing a blanks as far as the remaining two songs are concerned.

The singing voice is that of Krishna Kalle. Krishna Kalle has recorded close to 200 songs in Hindi films (which include songs for unreleased films also, as per Geet Kosh). Her singing career in films starts in the mid sixties, and carries on till the early eighties. In 1970, she was quite at the peak of her singing career.

The song presented is a love song, with the lady expressing her feelings for her beau – that her eyes are where he lives.

Song – Rehte Ho Meri Aankhon Mein  (Khooni Saaya) (1970) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Azeez Jamaali, MD – Kamal Kant

Lyrics

rehte ho meri aankhon mein
palkon ki thandi chhaon mein
jeevan ka mere sahara
saajan hai pyar tumhaara
rehte ho meri aankhon mein

tum mere main hoon tumhaari
jaane ye duniya saari
tum mere main hoon tumhaari
jaane ye duniya saari
mehki hawaayen
behki fizaayen
geet milan ke gaayen
rehte ho meri aankhon mein
palkon ki thandi chhaon mein
jeevan ka mere sahara
saajan hai pyar tumhaara
rehte ho meri aankhon mein

dekho ji aise na dekho
nazron ko tum apni roko
dekho ji aise na dekho
nazron ko tum apni roko
uff ye nigaahen
dil mein samaayen
preet ki jyot jalaayen
rehte ho meri aankhon mein
palkon ki thandi chhaon mein
jeevan ka mere sahara
saajan hai pyar tumhaara
rehte ho meri aankhon mein

aaa aaaa

रहते हो मेरी आँखों में
पलकों की ठंडी छाँव में
जीवन का मेरे सहारा
साजन है प्यार तुम्हारा
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में

तुम मेरे मैं हूँ तुम्हारी
जाने ये दुनिया सारी
तुम मेरे मैं हूँ तुम्हारी
जाने ये दुनिया सारी
महकी हवाएँ
बहकी फिज़ाएँ
गीत मिलन के गायें
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में
पलकों की ठंडी छाँव में
जीवन का मेरे सहारा
साजन है प्यार तुम्हारा
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में

देखो जी ऐसे ना देखो
नज़रों को तुम अपनी रोको
देखो जी ऐसे ना देखो
नज़रों को तुम अपनी रोको
उफ़्फ़ ये निगाहें
दिल में समाएँ
प्रीत की ज्योत जगाएँ
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में
पलकों की ठंडी छाँव में
जीवन का मेरे सहारा
साजन है प्यार तुम्हारा
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में

आss आsss

Missing Films of 1960s – 90
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

What a wonderful gem of a song this one is. The memory banks hold this from the radio listening days. Such a beautiful semi-classical creation, and also very popular in its time – I am amazed it has waited so long in the wings to make its place here on our blog.

The film is ‘Harishchandra Taramati’ from 1970. It is produced under the banner of Kala Mandal, Bombay and is directed by BK Adarsh. Star cast of this film is listed as Pradeep Kumar, Jaimala, Boby, BM Vyas, Jeevan, Shyama, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Bela Bose, Bipin Gupta, Helen, Madhumati, Jaishri Talpade, Tuntun, Sapru, Manorama, and Mehmood (Junior) etc.

The seven songs of this film are all written by Virendra Mishra and the music is created by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. The singing voice in this song is Lata ji, supported by chorus.

As I am checking the films from 1970, I came across this film, but it did not ring any bells at first. The mind is more familiar with the other film of same name from 1963, whose songs are penned by Kavi Pradeep. But then, as I checked the list of songs in this film, the mind sat up with a jerk when I read the title line of this song. All I could think of then was – WOW.

This song is such an exquisite creation, and such a pleasurable experience to listen. The opening verses simply capture the heart,

rimim jhimimwa
suno balamwa
naram garam hui saram
jhuke nainwa

For reference purposes, I checked the Raag-o-Pedia compiled by Shri KL Pandey. The listing informs us that this song is composed using three Raags – Bhairavi, Khamaaj and Malkauns.

As I started this post day before yesterday, I did not have access to the video of this song. Keen to know on whom this song is picturized, I started searching for this film. It turned out that although this film is more recent vintage than similar named films from 1952 and 1963, yet this one is more rare in terms of availability. After some messages exchanged with my other collector friends, I was able to secure the video clip of this song from one of them. The clip is not of good quality; it appears that it has been extracted from a VHS tape that has been over used. I have now uploaded this clip. Despite the poor quality, one can make out that this dance song is filmed on Helen, and a group of supporting dancers, and that Pradeep Kumar is the sole audience of this performance.

In the film, Pradeep Kumar plays the lead role of Raja Harishchandra. Sage Vishwamitra, who is jealous of his fame of truthfulness and righteousness, resolves to test the limits of Harishchandra’s good attributes. As the first step, he sends Menaka, the apsara from swarg lok to woo and enchant Harishchandra. Regulars will recall that Menaka is the same apsara whom Indra, the king of swarg lok, had sent to disturb the penance and meditation of Vishwamitra. In that episode, Vishwamitra had lost the battle, and was swayed by Menaka’s enchanting beauty. Now, he sends the very same apsara to sway the sensibility of Harishchandra. In the film, this episode is presented as a dream sequence.

Just listen to this song, as it makes its way through multiple ragas, all coming together for such a perfect listening experience. A wonderful re-discovery.

Missing Films of 1960s – 89
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The year that we are currently exploring is 1970. And I am surprised to be coming across so many films that at least I have not been familiar with. It would have been the period that listening to the radio would have already started. However, this film does not ring a bell at all.

The film that I introduce today is ‘Sau Saal Beet Gaye’. The obscurity of this film can also be estimated by the fact that even HFGK does not contain many details about this film. It contains a partial list of songs, and very little other information about the film itself. The banner name is identified as Natraj Productions. The lyricist name is listed as Indeewar, and the music director is identified as Usha Khanna.

Now, however, the film is available online. I reviewed the credits and gathered the following additional information. The star cast of the film is Ashok Kumar, Helen, Raj Mehra, Sajjan, Iftekhar, Pratima Devi, Chaman Puri and Mukri. The screenplay and dialogues are written by Ashok Kumar himself. The producer is Madan Chopra and the director is given as two names, indicating a duo – Ved-Madan. Possibly Madan is the same as the person identified as the producer.

I did not view the film in detail, only did a quick fast forward scan. Very interestingly, the lead romantic pair in this film is Ashok Kumar and Helen. The story is about two lovers meeting across the boundaries of life and death – in two different births. Quite familiar you might say. Yes, more than a handful of films come to mind that are based on this story outline.

Anyway, details in another post, maybe. Today’s song is a stage dance song performed by Helen. The male companion in this clip is not identified – most likely an unfamiliar junior artist who just appears in this song in the film. Helen works for a theater company owned by Iftekhar, who is the cousin brother of Ashok Kumar in the film. At the end of this song, Ashok Kumar and Helen are introduced, ostensibly for the first time, but there appears the first glimmer of a familiarity. And onward, the story unfolds.

The lyrics are from the pen of Indeewar and the music is by Usha Khanna. The singing voice is Asha Bhosle. A peppy and fast paced fun number that introduces Helen in this storyline. A Helen song is always a treat, and this one is no less. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Brahmchari Ji, O Brahmchari Ji  (Sau Saal Beet Gaye) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Usha Khanna

Missing Films of 1960s – 88
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This journey of searching out the missing films is such an interesting exploration of the unheard and less heard gems – or as they say on Radio Ceylon (SLBC now) ‘कम सुने और अनसुने गीत’.

Today’s song is one such rarely heard gem, but oh what exquisitely crafted gem this one is. The film is ‘Haveli’ from 1970. The name sounds as if this would be a film of the horror genre, of course mixed with police and robber crime drama. The one poster of this film that I am able to locate on the net (actually an image with the song on YT), shows the leading lady with a revolver in her hand. The rest of the poster combines the film title logo, and another image of the lead pair. This image does not exhibit any overt horror type flavor – just that the title gives such an impression.

The film is from the banner of Movies Den, Bombay. It is produced by Jawahar Anand and is directed by Sudarshan Babbar. The lead pair is Shailesh Kumar and Nivedita, and the remaining cast is listed as Azra, Heeralal, Manmohan Krishan, Ravikant, Brahm Bhardwaj, Lata Arora, Yunus Parvez, Ridku, Anand Prakash, Jawahar Kapoor, BK, Rahi, Dharmesh, Rajendra Kapoor, Jaishri T, Meenakshi, and Shefali.

The film has 5 songs, as per the Geet Kosh listings. Four of these songs, including the one being introduced today, are written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and one is written by Naseem Sahranpuri. Music for this film and composed by Sapan Jagmohan. The singing voice is Asha Bhosle.

Although I have not seen the video of this song, but still, from the flavor of the words and the style of rendition, this seems to be a sensuous song, possibly even a seduction song. The measured deliberateness with which Asha ji has rendered this song, brings in just that right emphasis making this such an attractively sensuous song.

The cast of actors includes names like Jaishree T, Azra, Meenakshi, Shefali – so I would not even start to guess on whom this song might have been picturized. I request our more knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about this song and this film, if available.

But regardless, enjoy this wonderfully sensuous song.

Song – Gesuon Ki Haseen Chhanv Mein Humnasheen  (Haveli) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Missing Films of 1960s – 87
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Goodness, I am surprised this film is still to appear here. It is titled ‘Patni’ from 1970. The name may be unfamiliar, but when I checked out the list of songs – you know, I had that déjà vu feeling – accha, so these songs are from this film. Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film, and I dare say, at least four songs are very, very familiar – resounding memories from the radio listening days. Listening to them again was not the surprise; the name of the film really was.

The film comes from the banner of Film Folk of Bombay, and is directed by VR Naidu. The star cast as listed in the Geet Kosh is Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Jagdev, Kumari Padma, Kundan, Harindranath Chattopadhyay, Rafia Sultana, AA Khan, Bazid Khan, Dhanlakshmi, Shefali, Onkar, KK Reddy (Satyajeet), Ramesh Dev, Shashi, Gaffur, Imtiaz, Ashok, and M Shetty. The five songs are all written by Indeewar, and the music is by Vishnu Khanna.

Now this name, i.e. the music director – I am hearing for the first time. As I check the Geet Kosh, his name appears only for two films – this one and ‘Pasand Apni Apni’ from 1972. The melodies of this film are really attractive, and that is why these songs have remained active in the memory for all this time. And yet, this name – the music director, is completely unfamiliar. A quick search on the net has not yielded any information. I request other knowledgeable readers to please add more information about Vishnu Khanna, and also about this film.

The song is a lovely rendition – a wonderful flowing expression of love, of the promises of being together forever and ever. Lovely words, lovely melody and superb rendition. A truly memorable love song.

 

Song – Poorab Chaloge Chaloongi, Paschim Chaloge Chaloongi  (Patni) (1970) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Vishnu Khanna

Lyrics

purab chaloge chaloongi
paschim chaloge chaloongi
sang main tumhaare rahoongi
jahaan jaaoge
purab chaloge chaloongi
paschim chaloge chaloongi

tu jo hai gagan to main ghata hoon
tu jo hai chaman to main hawa hoon
tu jo hai gagan to main ghata hoon
tu jo hai chaman to main hawa hoon
tu hi to mera armaan hai
pyaar ka tu hi vardaan hai
sang main tumhaare rahoongi
sang main tumhaare rahoongi
jahaan jaaoge
purab chaloge chaloongi

tera dil to meri jaan hai
tu mere liye bhagwaan hai
tera dil to meri jaan hai
tu mere liye bhagwaan hai
tu kahe saara jag chhod doon
duniya ke bandhan ko to doon
tu kahe saara jag chhod doon

Missing Films of 1960s – 86
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s debut film from the decade of 1960s is ‘Sasta Khoon Mehnga Pyaar’ from 1970. Honestly, never heard of this film before I took on this home work exercise to dig out missing films of 1960s. This is an obscure and almost unknown film, although 1970, comparatively speaking, is more recent vintage. This film is so obscure that even the print version of the Geet Kosh does not carry any details about this film, except for the song list and the artists associated with the songs. However, later this film seems to have become available in public domain, and was released on disc by T-Series. A short video clip of the initial credits is currently available on YouTube. I have been able to get the list of actor names from this clip. However this clip also does not carry the complete credits – it ends before reaching the names of the producer and director.

The film is from the banner of Sharda Films, Bombay. The cast of actors is a long list, as per the film’s credits – Dev Kumar, Sonia Sahni, Shailesh Kumar, Sulochana, Sajjan, Padma, Madhumati, BM Vyas, Pichhoo Kapoor, Sheikh, Bhagwan, Maruti, Ulhas, Ramesh Kant, Jankidas, Tuntun, Lalita Kumar, Maqbool, Jilani, Moolchand, Amrit Rana, Amir, Jairy, Nabab Kardari, Nabab Dadri, Waman, Sugandhi, Gulab Singh, Roop Kumar, Ganpati, Anil Kumar, and Mahesh Purohit. The last four names in this list are identified as child artistes.

Geet Kost lists four songs for this film. All the four songs are from the pen of Asad Bhopali, and the music director is Usha Khanna. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. From the music and the style of rendition, it appears that this song was filmed as a mujra dance. In fact, at two places in the song, a male voice is also heard asking a question “kya?”. The song tells of a tryst between the lovers, that happened the previous night, and the lady forgot her dupatta, at the meeting place, when she returned from meeting her lover.

I am hearing this song for the first time today, and I have heard it multiple times as I prepared to upload it. Usha Khanna’s music is attractive, and this is a good song to bring up from the depths of obscurity. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Pee Se Milna Ghazab Hua Raat Dhale  (Sasta Khoon Mehnga Pyaar) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Usha Khanna
Unidentified Male Voice

Lyrics

aaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaa
aaaa aaaaaa haaa

pee se milna ghazab hua raat dhale
haan pee se milna ghazab hua raat dhale
hui jab main juda un se mil ke galey
haaye raam main to apna dupatta wahin bhool aayi
daiyya daiyaa main to apna dupatta wahin bhool aayi

jab nigaahen milin
jab nigaahen
jab nigaahen milin
honth tharra ke chup ho gaye the
ek toofaan thaa..aa..aa
jis mein hum dono hi kho gaye the
ek toofaan thaa

jis mein hum dono hi kho gaye the
arre ghar pahunchi hosh udey
ghar pahunchi hosh udey
jab ye khyaal aaya
kya
haaye raam main to apna dupatta wahin bhool aayi
daiyya daiyaa main to apna dupatta wahin bhool aayi

un ki baton ka ras
un ki baton ka
un ki baton ka ras
dil ki nas nas ko garma gaya tha
ek achhoota nasha..aa..aa
mere jazbaat par chhaa..aa..aa gaya tha
ek achhoota nasha
ek achhoota nasha
ek achhoota nasha
mere jazbaat par chhaa..aa..aa gaya tha

Missing Films of 1960s – 85
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The next in this series is a religious film from 1970. Yes, the times were when this genre of films had a serious following, and the producers in the industry would be creating films in this category. Today’s film, ‘Shri Krishna Leela’ is from the house of Wadia’s, under their banner of Basant Pictures. As we review the data about film production under this banner, we find that this has been one of the very active production houses over the decades. [Note: I am examining the data in the Geet Kosh from 1931 to 1980 only.]

Over the years, Wadia film production company went about its business under the names as – Wadia Brothers, Wadia Brothers Productions, Wadia Films and Wadia Movietone. Collectively, these banners have been active since 1933 till the year 1971, having produced 50+ films in various genres – social, stunt, religious, mythical, costume dramas, historical etc. In 1943, the company launched another banner, named Basant Pictures. As we scan their list of films, once again we find slight variations in the banner names as – Basant Pictures, Basant Pictures (Wadia Brothers) and Basant Wadia Brothers Production. Collectively, this banner has a listing of about 60 films between 1943 and 1980. The films in this list also cover just the same set of film genres.

A brief about the House of Wadia. The ancestors of this Parsi family originally settled in Surat after migrating from Persia. The original business of Wadia family was shipbuilding. The logo of Wadia Movietone prominently carries an image of a ship – it is a representation of their origins – the legacy business that started off their fortunes. The Wadia Group’s shipbuilding business was set up in 1736 by Lowjee Nuserwanjee Wadia. Later during that century, the group shifted its base from Surat to Bombay. They built trading ships, and later in 1800s they build maritime vessels for the Royal Navy (Great Britain).

Wadia Movietone was founded in 1933 by the brothers – JBH Wadia and Homi Wadia. JBH Wadia (born 1901) was a very well educated young man, who came into the film industry in the closing years of silent cinema. He produced about a dozen silent films, with moderate success. His productions were mostly adaptations of successful Hollywood productions of that era.

The other co-founders were Manchersha Billimoria, and Burjore and Nadirshaw Tata. Their first film – ‘Laal e Yaman’ (1933) was a major commercial success. In 1935, the company produced ‘Hunterwali’ with Nadia in the title role, along with Boman Shroff and John Cawas in prominent roles. This film became a surprise hit, bringing in a huge commercial windfall for the company. In the process, it set a trend which was duplicated by Wadias themselves and also copied by many other production houses. In 1936 came ‘Miss Frontier Mail’, followed by ‘Lutaru Lalna’ in 1938, ‘Punjab Mail’ in 1939, ‘Diamond Queen’ in 1940, and ‘Bambaiwali’ in 1941. However, by this time, the repeated use of the stunt formula lost its luster, and the company started facing losses. In 1936, the Tata brothers had already moved out from the partnership. In 1942, the Wadia Movietone studio was put up for sale. V Shantaram, who was moving out of Prabhat at the same time, purchased this studio and set up his famous production house – Rajkamal Kalamandir, at this premises.

In 1942 itself, the younger brother, Homi Wadia, set up Basant Pictures as a new production house. He started producing films under this banner using studio facilities at other premises. In 1947, he eventually set up his own studio once again. Basant Studio was functional till 1981. In 1990, the studio was inherited by Riyad Vinci Wadia, the grandson of JBH Wadia. He revived film production once again under this banner. However, he too passed away in 2003. The studio now houses the Wadia Movietone and Basant Pictures archives and memorabilia collection.

The film ‘Shri Krishna Leela’ is directed by Homi Wadia. The star cast includes Master Sachin, Heena Kumari, Jaishri Gadkar, Sapru, Manhar Desai, Kumar Dighe, Deepak, Tabassum, Ratnamala, Padmarani, Uma Dutt, Shekhar, Master Bobby, Master Ratan, Tuntun, Babu Raje, Habeeb, Dalpat, H Prakash, and Prince Arjun. The songs of this film are penned by Bharat Vyas and the music is from the mind of SN Tripathi.

Today’s song is a lullaby, in the voice of Asha Bhosle. On screen, the song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar, in the role of Maa Yashoda, as she is crooning to put the infant Krishna to sleep. Close to the end of this clip, we see a little more grown up child Krishna, role played by Master Sachin.

A wonderfully soothing melody. . . listen, and relax.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 30
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ल’ – लीजिये दिल का नज़राना, लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना ॰ ॰ ॰

आवाज़ दे कर हमें तुम बुलाओ ॰ ॰ ॰ 

Ah yes, that is what the heart desires, but sadly, that will happen no more. . . you are so far away now, that our supplications so sent, do not reach you any more.

– – – –

OK, wow, another gem from the radio listening days. And what a wonderful reminder this song is. The film is ‘Naya Kanoon’ from 1965, and Rafi Sb is accompanied by Asha Bhosle in this song. Given that Madan Mohan is the music director, I am a little surprised that Lata does not figure in this film at all. Eight songs in all, with four female solos, and one duet (this one) – all carry the voice of Asha Bhosle. Possibly this recording may have been done during the time when there was a stand off between Lata ji and Rafi Sb. Still surprising that Madan Mohan did not get Lata to sing even one of the solo songs. Or possibly, other reasons, circumstances may have intervened.

The film is directed by RC Talwar for the banner of Manchanda Productions, Bombay. The main star cast is listed as Ashok Kumar, Vaijayantimala, Bharat Bhushan, Poornima, Nishi, Leela Mishra, Badri Prasad, Kamal Mehra, and Om Prakash among others. There are eight songs in this film, or may be seven, because one song is a multi version song sung as a solo by both Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle. All songs are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri, except one, which is written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak.

On screen, this song is filmed a recording studio song. The two singers – Bharat Bhushan and Vijayantimala, are recording this song in a studio. Or maybe the song is being broadcast live.  As we see the three stanzas, there are short visual interludes, and the dresses of the two artistes are different in each stanza. The intervening scenes convey a message as if displaying the rising popularity, as well as prosperity of the singer.

Bharat Bhushan in this 1965 film is a distant call from his heydays of ‘Baiju Baawra’ in 1952. Decidedly not looking any younger, but he is also looking much more morose. As the visual clip starts and the music comes on, the mind gets into position for a fast paced light hearted duet. But the expression on the face of the hero conveys as if he is going to break into “Maayoos To Hoon Waade Se Tere. . .” 🙂 🙂 .

Regardless, a very breezy composition which will tickle a few memories in the minds of radio listeners.  Listen and relive those memories.

 

Song – Lijiye Dil Ka Nazraana, Lijiye Aankh Ka Shukraana  (Naya Kanoon) (1965) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics 

lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi

aankh ne dekha to dil ne paa liya
meethi baaton ne hamne behka liya
pyaar mein hum bhi tumhaare ho gaye
tum miley to hum khushi se kho gaye
kadmon mein khada hai deewaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

dil bade armaan se laaya hoon main
ye kali toofaan se laaya hoon main
meri palken jhuk rahi hain laaj se
tum hamaare ho chuke ho aaj se
aaya hai shama ka parwaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

aur bhi duniya mein laakhon chaand hain
aapke aage magar wo maand hain
aur bhi duniya mein laakhon phool hain
aapke aage magar wo dhool hain
haazir hai tumhaara mastaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना
ये प्रीत बनेगी अफसाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी

आंख ने देखा तो दिल ने पा लिया
मीठी बातों ने हमने बहका लिया
प्यार में हम भी तुम्हारे हो गए
तुम मिले तो हम खुशी से खो गए
कदमों में खड़ा है दीवाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना

दिल बड़े अरमान से लाया हूँ मैं
ये काली तूफान से लाया हूँ मैं
मेरी पलकें झुक रही हैं लाज से
तुम हमारे हो चुके हो आज से
आया है शमा का परवाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना

और भी दुनिया में लाखों चाँद हैं
आपके आगे मगर वो माँद हैं
और भी दुनिया में लाखों फूल हैं
आपके आगे मगर वो धूल हैं
हाजिर है तुम्हारा मस्ताना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना
ये प्रीत बनेगी अफसाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना

For me, this is a crush that still endures – a crush that I have never gotten over. Since the days when I first saw her in ‘Talash’ (1969) – and the song – “Kar Le Pyaar Karne Ke Din Hain Yahi” – a part of me has always remained smitten with her image and her thoughts. Helen, aah Helen – the ultimate danseuse of the silver screen. Helen – whose art has established the gold benchmark as a dancer, for all measures – from the past, and maybe, forever in the future. For sincerely, till this time, no other dancer has come close to this ultimate – in grace, in innovation, in energy, in movement – in every aspect of this art form.

It is said that the classical dance forms of India, are probably the most expressive traditional dances. The dancers are coached to develop the enhanced expressions for all the human emotions. The artist is taught not just to exhibit a series of well coordinated movements, which of course is very pleasing to the senses, but it is imperative for them to also communicate the emotions through the facial expressions, body language and the finer movements like twitching and trembling of specific muscles and body parts. The art of the Kathak, Bharat Natyam, Khatakali, etc. is so very refined in this aspect, and the aspiring artists are trained from a very young age.

As far as I am aware, Helen simply started dancing in films (in her teens, as early as when she was 13). She probably has no formal training in any dance form. And yet, seeing Helen on screen, in all the dancing forms, is an experience that flows across and covers the entire spectrum of human emotions and human exchange. In a career that spans almost seven decades, from the end of 1940s to the present day, she has likely appeared in 600+ films, and has regaled the audiences with that many colors and flavors of practically any dance form that may exist on this planet – rhumba, prancing, conga, frolic, folk, swing, rock n’ roll, spin, skip, step, samba, kabuki, disco, cabaret, jive, jump, cha cha cha, foxtrot, cavort, flamenco, waltz, boogie, santoso, flit, jig, jitterbug, hustle, gambol, polka, hop, sway, bunny hop, tap, shimmy, careen, salsa, mambo etc. – and of course, lavani and bhangra too. 🙂

Seeing her in so many different avatars of dancing, one is convinced that rhythm is naturally ingrained into her, and that there is almost a divine intervention here that allows her to pick up any choreography and perform exceedingly pleasing movements to it. The expression of emotions come to her so naturally – and the graceful flow of movements that is so excellently effortless – when she is in front of the camera, she actually knows what she is into. Such realization in the mind brings about a natural performance that simply cannot be executed in any better way. Unlike many of her ilk that have also performed on the Indian screen – yes, she knows, she is fully aware of what she is into.

There are a handful of rare performances by her that are not accompanied by any song. One of the finest, and in my humble opinion, her best such performance is a songless dance from the film ‘Hulchul’ (1971). Folks may remember this stage dance – for the variety of dance forms that are packed into this maybe 9 or 10 minutes performance, the multiple emotions that flow through it, and the significant message this dance experience is attempting to convey. (I tried to bring on this dance clip to our blog, but Atul ji is uncertain whether it qualifies. 😉 Maybe, I will try again.)

For me and my puppy-love heart, Helen is an ageless wonder that I adore. Sweet sixteen – that is what she is in my books, and that is how she is going to be, always.

And that also brings up today the most appropriate song of hers – to wish her a very happy birthday. The film is ‘Toofaan’ from 1969. The words are from the pen of Akhtar Romani. Music for this peppy and well paced dance number is created by Daan Singh. The singing voice – Asha Bhosle, probably the longest lasting partnership of singing voice and dancing steps on the Hindi screen.

Sharing the screen with Helen in this song is Dara Singh, whose birth anniversary just came two days ago (19th Nov). With this song we also remember him – he would have been 90 this year.

The dance is a typical folk dance from north India, performed in a very rural setting. Just see how wonderfully, this ordained Queen of the Cabaret – how wonderfully she is executing this oh so typically a rural folk dance.

And the words of the mukhda,

laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal

Dear Helen, always young, always fresh, always sixteen – always sweet sixteen – forever.

Song – Laaga Mohe Ab Ki Baar (Toofaan) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Akhtar Romani, MD – Daan Singh

Lyrics

laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal
duniya pukaare solah baras ki
dekho chali re kataar
o baanke piya sun sun ke rang bhayo laal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal

nainon mein kajra
zulfon mein gajra
haathon mein mehndi racha ke
gaalon pe laali
pairon mein paayal
maathe pe bindiya sajaa ke
dekhoon jo darpan awaaz aaye..e..e..e
dekhoon jo darpan awaaz aaye
khil ye gayo re singaar
o baanke piya sun sun ke rang bhayo laal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal

logon ke darr se
mein apne ghar se
panghat mein ja na sakoon
panghat to kya
main apne hi angnaa
ghoonghat hataa na sakoon
ghoonghat jo sarke awaaz aaye..e..e..e
ghoonghat jo sarke awaaz aaye
hamri bhi kismat sanwaar
o baanke piya sun sun ke rang bhayo laal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal
duniya pukaare solah baras ki
dekho chali re kataar
o baanke piya sun sun ke rang bhayo laal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal

लागा मोहे अब की बार
ओ बाँके पिया पन्द्रह पे एक नयो साल
लागा मोहे अब की बार
ओ बाँके पिया पन्द्रह पे एक नयो साल
दुनिया पुकारे सोलह बरस की
देखो चली रे कटार
ओ बाँके पिया सुन सुन के रंग भयो लाल
लागा मोहे अब की बार
ओ बाँके पिया पन्द्रह पे एक नयो साल

नैनों में कजरा
ज़ुल्फों में गजरा
हाथों में मेहंदी रचा के
गालों पे लाली
पैरों में पायल
माथे पे बिंदिया सजा के
देखूँ जो दर्पण तो आवाज़ आए॰॰ए॰॰ए॰॰ए
देखूँ जो दर्पण तो आवाज़ आए
खिल ये गयो रे सिंगार
ओ बाँके पिया सुन सुन के रंग भयो लाल
लागा मोहे अब की बार
ओ बाँके पिया पन्द्रह पे एक नयो साल

लोगों के डर से
मैं अपने घर से
पनघट पे जा ना सकूँ
पनघट तो क्या
मैं अपने ही अंगना
घूँघट हटा ना सकूँ
घूँघट जो सरके आवाज़ आए॰॰ए॰॰ए॰॰ए
घूँघट जो सरके आवाज़ आए
हमरी भी किस्मत संवार
ओ बाँके पिया सुन सुन के रंग भयो लाल
लागा मोहे अब की बार
ओ बाँके पिया पन्द्रह पे एक नयो साल
दुनिया पुकारे सोलह बरस की
देखो चली रे कटार
ओ बाँके पिया सुन सुन के रंग भयो लाल
लागा मोहे अब की बार
ओ बाँके पिया पन्द्रह पे एक नयो साल
