Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘न’ – नज़र ने लूटा है, अदा ने मारा है ॰ ॰ ॰

फूलों से दोस्ती है, काँटों से यारी है ॰ ॰ ॰
ऐसी मज़े की प्यारे ज़िंदगी हमारी है ॰ ॰ ॰

ज़िंदगी हो भी तो जैसी तुम्हारी थी, वैसी हो॰ ॰ ॰ कोई अच्छा था तो वो भी दोस्त था, कोई अच्छा नहीं था तो भी यार ही था। A big heart such as yours is a rarity in humans.

The first line of the song and the mind is tuned in for another gem of a creation from Chitragupt. This next song in this series is vintage Chitragupt.

The film is ‘Police Detective’ from 1960. The melody was still the reigning empress, and the creators of the likes of Chitragupt were still at their inspired best. Such a lovely playful song of two hearts in love, expressing their hearts to each other.

The film is a production from the banner of Neo Light Films, Bombay and is produced by Balwant Bhatt and Ram Kamlani. It is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of actors listed for the film is impressive and includes Shyama, Sudesh, David, Jaishri Gadkar, Lilian, Ram Kamlani, Helen, Anwar, Shammi, Bhagwan, Meena, Genius, Susheel Kumar, Jai Kumar, Nisar, Roshanlal, Ramesh Roy, Saleem, Ghulam Rasool, Gani, Mohammad Ali, Sevanand, Ameer, Douglas, Tiger (Dog), and Pedro, the human chimpanzee. Hmm. . . Sevanand – interesting, would have liked to see an image of this actor. . . whether any similarity to Dev Anand. 🙂

Six songs are listed for this film, all from the pen of Prem Dhawan. Two of these songs are already showcased here on our blog. This is the third one to come on board from this film. The singing companion of Rafi Sb in this song is Lata Mangeshkar. Given the list of actors, this song is most likely picturized on the lead pair of Shyama and Sudesh Kumar. I request other readers and friends to please comment on this guess.

Listen to this lovely tête-à-tête between two hearts in love – complaints of hearts stolen through deceit and ripostes of challenges that if this is deceit, then welcome to take back the heart. Wonderful play of words, and a lovely tune that ties them together. A pleasure to listen.

Song – Nazar Ne Loota Hai, Ada Ne Maara Hai  (Police Detective) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
agar ye dhokha tha
to kis ne roka tha
laga ke dil ye kehte ho
ke dil bechaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

hamaare haal pe to ye zamaana hansta hai
ke jiske paas dil ho wo kabhi to phansta hai
hamaare haal pe to ye zamaana hansta hai
ke jiske paas dil ho wo kabhi to phansta hai
to phir kyon rotey phirtey ho
ke dil nazron ka maara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

hamaare naaz bhi sehne padenge ulfat mein
likhe hain sainkdo chakkar
tumhaari kismat mein
hamaare naaz bhi sehne padenge ulfat mein
likhe hain sainkdo chakkar
tumhaari kismat mein
jo hum pe guzregi seh lenge
jab dil tum pe waara hai
agar ye dhokha tha
to kis ne roka tha
laga ke dil ye kehte ho
ke dil bechaara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
अगर ये धोखा था
तो किस ने रोका था
लगा के दिल
ये कहते हो
के दिल बेचारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

हमारे हाल पे तो ये ज़माना हँसता है
के जिसके पास दिल हो वो कभी तो फँसता है
हमारे हाल पे तो ये ज़माना हँसता है
के जिसके पास दिल हो वो कभी तो फँसता है
तो फिर क्यों रोते फिरते हो
के दिल नज़रों का मारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

हमारे नाज़ भी सहने पड़ेंगे उलफत में
लिखे हैं सैकड़ों चक्कर
तुम्हारी किस्मत में
हमारे नाज़ भी सहने पड़ेंगे उलफत में
लिखे हैं सैकड़ों चक्कर
तुम्हारी किस्मत में
जो हम पे गुज़रेगी सह लेंगे
जब दिल तुम पे वारा है
अगर ये धोखा था
तो किस ने रोका था
लगा के दिल
ये कहते हो
के दिल बेचारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

Blog Day : 3642 Post No. : 14468

A recent anniversary that I had been preparing for – and missed on account of some travel engagements – is the remembrance day for the exceptional poet and lyricist – Bharat Vyas. He passed away in 1982, on 5th July.

The mention of this name brings to mind names of films such as ‘Chandralekha’ (1948), ‘Rim Jhim’ and ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (both 1949), ‘Janamashtami’ and ‘Hamaara Ghar’ (both 1950), ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Do Aankhen Baraah Haath’ and ‘Amar Singh Rathod’ (both 1957), also ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ from 1957, ‘Samraat Chandragupt’ (1958), ‘Bedard Zamaana Kya Jaane’ and ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnaai’ (1959), ‘Navrang’ and ‘Raani Roopmati’ (again 1959), ‘Angulimaal’, ‘Veer Durgadas’ and ‘Saaranga’ (all 1960), ‘Jai Chittod’ and ‘Pyaar Ki Pyaas’ (1961), ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan’ (1963), ‘Boond Jo Ban Gayi Moti’ (1967) – and many more films with many a memorable song.

A career that lasted well over four decades, starting in the early 1940s. with about 1200 songs from more than 130 films. And a majority of these films, say around 70%, is an exclusive list of religious and historical films that forms a very impressive read. So yes, his specialization seems to be poetry on religious themes. Even a (then) modern dance based love story – the film ‘Cha Cha Cha’ from 1964; when the producer needed a couple of songs of traditional nature, Bharat Vyas is the poet who was called upon for this task.

I am presenting this surprisingly very fun song from a nondescript children’s film ‘Phool Aur Kaliyaan’ from (1960). When I landed at this song and started listening, it seemed to be some sort of a normal bhajan beginning, being sung by a group of young children. The earnestness and sincerity writ upon their faces as they start the singing, is very engaging. And the mind prepares itself for some wonderful bhajan to follow. But just after the introductory lines are done with, the song transforms into a hilarious entreaty to the Almighty, wherein the children are praying for a very specific boon from Him.

As the song continues, the play of emotions continues to transform from one antaraa to the next, adding more and more hilarity with every passing line. The earnestness on the faces of these children, their expressions of entreaties, and their actions to the words in the song, adds to the humor. And the listener realizes that the children are dead serious with their pleadings to the Lord. In the entire process, the children use all forms of inducement – literally following the traditional method of “साम, दाम, दंड, भेद” which is inducement by praising, by promises of alluring gifts, by threats, and by logic.

The picturization of this song is excellently imaginative. I am just continuously laughing whenever I start listening to this song. The चाचा (uncle) of the children is a tailor. The song is being performed in his work place. The children pick up miscellaneous things from around them and contrive some very peculiar instruments to create the orchestra for the music. The expressions and the fervour of their delivery has been handled extremely well by the director, and of course by the kids themselves.

As the songs gets to its closing lines, the fervour and the intensity of expressions starts to increase. Suddenly come to mind certain other bhajans, in which the picturization shows a similar amplification of fervour and music, and by experience we know – a miracle is about to happen; the statue of God will shed a flower, or a tear. Or an unconscious, near dead person will start breathing and mumbling.

The film ‘Phool Aur Kaliyan’ comes from the banner of Rajkamal Kala Mandir of Bombay, which has been the flagship banner of V Shantaram after his separation from Prabhat Studios in 1942. The film is directed by Ram Gabaale. Geet Kosh lists four songs for this film, all from the pen of Bharat Vyas. The music composition is by Pt Shivram. The singing voice is that of Charusheela, the daughter of V Shantaram from his first wife Vimalabai.

So watch and listen to this oh so engaging song, and I promise you will be smirking and laughing all the way through, to the last when the miracle occurs. Needless to say, I am verily bowled over by this song. And if any listener disagrees and is not fully satisfied, I am ready to return their money. 🙂 🙂

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ध’ – धीरे धीरे मोहब्बत जवां हो गई ॰ ॰ ॰

दुनिया में आया है तो फूल खिलाये जा॰ ॰ ॰

With your songs, and your deeds, that is what you accomplished in your life; that is the only memories we remember you by . . .

Presenting the next episode in this series. The film is a standard family drama from the still sedate 1960s, and the fever of disco was still hidden in far horizons. The film is ‘Bhai Behen’ from 1969. The lead pair of Nutan and Sunil Dutt, with a better part of two decades of careers behind them, still look handsome and comely.

The film comes from the banner of Vikram Productions, Madras, and is directed by the renowned A Bhimsingh. The cast of actors is listed as Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Pran, Padmini, Sulochana, Helen, Diwakar, Mukri, Bhalla, Shivraj, V Puranik, and Babbanlal. Quite a formulaic presentation this one must be – one look as the list of actors, and one can quickly surmise the type of roles that each actor would have played.

Seven songs and four songwriters are listed – Rajendra Krishan, SH Bihari, Pt Narendra Sharma and Hasrat Jaipuri. This song is from the pen of SH Bihari. Music is composed by the duo of Shanker Jaikishan.

The song is about coming of age and the blossoming of first love. The song plays out in the gardens and then on to the boat and the Bombay coastline. Both Sunil Dutt and Nutan are still fresh from their 1967 hit together – ‘Milan’. And a little further back, they also have more hits together – ‘Khandaan’ in 1965 and ‘Sujaata’ in 1960. Ah yes, also ‘Gauri’ from 1968.

Enjoy this lesser heard melody in the voices of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle.

Song – Dheere Dheere Mohabbat Jawaan Ho Gai  (Bhai Behan) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi
dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi
dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi

aap to jaane kya
mujhse keh kar miley
aap to jaane kya
mujhse keh kar miley
phool armaan ke dil mein itne khile
phool itne khile
husn ki zindagi gulsitaan ho dayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi
dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi

kar chuke aap jab
mujh se ahd e wafaa
kar chuke aap jab
mujh se ahd e wafaa
farq itna hi donon mein baaki raha
haaye baaki raha
aap dil ban gaye
aur main jaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi
dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi

aaa aaa aaaa
aaaa aaaaa aaaa aaaa
aa haa haa

फर्क इतना ही दोनों में बाकी रहा

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 18
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘द’ – दिल्ली वाले साब गजब कर डाला रे ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

खुदा भी आसमान से जब ज़मीं पर देखता होगा॰ ॰ ॰

तेरी आवाज़ को किसने बनाया, सोचता होगा॰ ॰ ॰

The voice, that defined a new benchmark for divinity; no wonder if God Himself would be wondering, how such a human voice got created. . .

– – – –

Presenting the next song in this series.

This one turns out to be a fun exchange between a lady and a gentleman, who most likely are a husband-wife pair. From the lyrics, one can surmise that the gentleman works with the police force and has recently been promoted to be a ‘thaanedar’, or in other words – the inspector who heads a police station. In today’s parlance, this would be equivalent of an SHO – Station House Officer.

So the lady is expressing wonder at the action of some higher up officer – ‘Dilli Waale Saahb’ to make her husband an inspector. She seems not being able to believe it – ‘gajab kar daala re’. And then the rest of the song follows, with some fun lyrics as the two exchange some humorous comments. Listen to the lyrics, and the enjoy the fun.

The song is from the film ‘Bhikhaari’ from 1949. Now a very interesting thing noted in Geet Kosh. This film seems to be the same as the 1948 film ‘Satyanarayan’. As we review the information about these two films, all the demographics, as in production banner, director, music director, lyricists and actors, all are exactly the same. And further, the list of songs is almost identical. The nine songs are listed with exactly the same mukhda. The film ‘Satyanarayan’ has one extra item, as in instrumental music recording. Interesting thing is that the serial nos. of the gramophone records are different. This indicates that the songs were released twice on two different sets of gramophone records, under the respective names of two films.

The film is produced under the banner of Bhagwan Pictures, Bombay. Two names are listed as directors – Kumar Sahu and R Vishnuram. The nine songs are penned by four lyricists – Pt Indra, Madhukar (a name that is likely the same as Madhukar Rajasthani), Sewak and Surjeet (again, a name that is likely the same as Surjeet Sethi). Music is composed by Hansraj Behl. List of actors includes Ranjeet Kumari, Roop Kumari, Jawahar Kaul, Balakram, Sewak, B Gill, SP Mahindra, Chanchal Kumari, Leela Gupte, and Laxmi Chand.

The singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi Sb and Binapani Mukherji. Enjoy this fun song – another addition to the list of memorable duets of Rafi Sb.

 

Song – Dilli Waale Saahb Ghajab Kar Daala Re  (Bhikhaari) (1949) Singer – Binapani Mukherji, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Pt Indra, MD – Hansraj Behl

Yes, we grew up with and learned all about the heart, and the smiles and love, listening to your songs. . . how we wish there were more. . .

Scraped through with some difficulty for today’s episode – not many songs, and duet at that, beginning with this letter ‘थ’.

Today’s song is from a lesser known film from 1957 – ‘Laxmi Pooja’.  The film is produced and directed by Jayant Desai for Hemlata Pictures, Bombay. The list of actors of this film reads like – Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Anant Kumar, Babu Raje, Praveen Pal, Indira, Manju, Shri Bhagwan, Sukumar, Rajrani, and Meenu Mumtaz etc.

The nine songs of this film are all written by Bharat Vyas, and the music is composed by Chitragupt. Quite a melodious song, this offering is. The singing voices are those of Shamshad Begum and Rafi Sb.

Apparently the lady’s beau has a stronger attachment to religious pursuits, much to the dismay of the lady. And she is trying to win him over with her winsome expressions about youth being wasted. And the gentleman replies – it is not just youth, but the entire life that is getting wasted, so let us sing the praises of the Good Lord. The lady is not giving up her rightful claim and she too presses on with her efforts to snare him with the promises of love. Our man, appears to be made of sterner stuff – and absolutely does not give up by the time 3rd antaraa starts to play (somewhat breaking the rule we have always found useful in such song situations).

There is another song of a similar theme – from the 1975 film ‘Sanyaasi’ – “Chal Sanyasi Mandir Mein“. It would be interesting to compare notes and lyrics. . . 🙂

Listen and enjoy.

Chorus

Lyrics

thodi si zindgani

kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re

teri thodi si zindgaani
pal pal beeti jaaye jawaani
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

rang rangeele raja aaja

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 16
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘त’ – तुम्हें कैसे कहूँ, ओ जी ओ ओ ओ ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

फिर तेरी याद नए गीत सुनाने आई ॰ ॰ ॰

Never a day passes when your memories don’t pay a visit. . . bringing with them wonderful songs, heard and unheard. . . a treasure that keeps on playing in the alleys of the mind. . .

Today’s episode features a wonderful breezy duet from the 1959 film ‘Naach Ghar’. This film is a social drama produced and directed by TS Tara, for the banner of Quality Pictures, Bombay. As the name suggests, the film has a theme that is built around a stage dance group, i.e. a nautanki group. It involves characters for whom dance and music is the drive in life; it also has others who would like to usurp and manipulate these passions for their own advantage; and then there are good hearted people who want to bring happiness to all. The cast of actors is very impressive – Ashok Kumar, Shobha Khote, Gopikrishan, Helen, Kamla Lakshman, Anoop Kumar, Dhumal, Iftikhar, Maya Das, Mirza Musharraf, Jamaal, Sujata, Bismillah, and Vivek.

As I check for details online, I come across a poster that shows Helen dancing in accompaniment with Gopi Krishan. Now this should be a veritable treat to watch – Helen dancing with an acknowledged master of classical dance. One of the websites https://bombaymann2.blogspot.com/ has reproduced a brief introduction of the film from the information booklet of the film, as below,

The whole worlds a stage – a Naachgar. Its impossible to tell its whole story in a small space like this. But we are glad here to introduce a few interesting characters whose strange doings give this story its fasicnation. . Radha: A simple village maiden who is in love with Mohan and eventually effaces herself in order that Mohan should be happy. . Mohan: A simple village youth, struck first by paralysis and then by a Raja’s bullet. He is dazzled by city life and, forsaking Radha, develops a strong infatuation for Renu, a city dancer. . Mohini: A young girl, orphaned by a storm. She finds her way into a Nautanki troupe and daydreams of happiness with Gopi, its organiser. But fate having decreed otherwise, she is ultimately forced into a Naachghar – away from her sweetheart. . Gopi: A Nautanki dancer, whose art show brilliantly in partnership with Mohini. They get lost to each other in the maze of city life – and take any knocks from fate in the process. . Shekhar: An opportunist, money-crazy couttier of the Raja of a state, who was the main barrier between Radha and Mohan and Gopi and Mohini. The only man he feared was Bihari. . Bihari: Orginally a guide in shikar-forest, he became the principal aide to the Raja Saheb and his chief confidant. . Raja Saheb: A large-hearted chief of a large state, who wanted to see everyone happy and prosperous. [Source: Booklet]

 

Geet Kosh lists 10 songs for this musical – all songs are created by the team of Sahir Ludhianvi and N Datta. The count of songs is like – one Rafi Sb solo, three Lata solos, four Rafi-Lata duets, and then one duet of Rafi Sb each with Asha and Geeta. Way back in September 2012, two songs of this film were posted in quick succession. Three more songs have followed in the interim. Today we get to the sixth song of this film. All songs are quite a treasure, and I hope the remaining songs will find their place on this blog shortly.

This song is one of the Rafi-Lata duets – kind of a teasing song, where in the lady requests not to be teased in public, and the gentleman wraps it up by stating that one should be open with one’s feelings – “दुनिया का डर क्या”.

A remarkable configuration of singing lines; the first two antaraas are all by Lata, with Rafi Sb making an appearance in the third. As the song progressed, I was almost thinking whether some error had been made and this was another solo. But then Rafi Sb’s voice appeared in the third antaraa. . . 🙂

Enjoy this quick paced and breeze tête-à-tête between lovers.

Blog Day : 3620 Post No. : 14429

98 years ago, this day, was born this exceptional artist – Hemant Kumar. A singing voice that is remembered and cherished for it depth and softness. His versatility with the lower octaves is a measure of wonder. And a pleasure to listen to the songs sung by him.

I was checking online today for news and articles on the occasion of his birth anniversary. I found some – new and less recent. What amazes me is the shallowness of research effort that people put into such endeavours. All articles talk about the beginning of his career in Hindi films – ‘Jaal’ (1952) and SD Burman’s “Ye Raat Ye Chandni Phir Kahaan” as a singer; and as a music director – “Nagin” (1954). One article, based on an interview with him, at least gets to the correct debut as a music director – ‘Anand Math’ (1952). But as a singer, the complete period of 1945 to 1951 is completely overlooked.

Not too many songs to list for this part of his career, but at least the correct information needs to be investigated and presented. His debut Hindi film as a singer is ‘Iraada’ from 1945. For the next 5 to 6 years, he is on record as having sung 2 to 3 songs per year, before reaching the early 1950s, and getting the popular acknowledgement.

For today’s remembrance, I present this wonderful song from the film ‘Banphool’ of 1945. The lyrics of this song are written by Narendra Nath Tuli and the music composition is by Dhiren Mitra. This song is a kind of ‘naat’ in the honor of the Almighty, telling about his qualities as a benevolent Master, and as an unforgiving Judge who would impartially impart justice for both the good and the bad deeds. The mukhda (title line) of this song is an exhortation to revere Him and to connect with Him in love and submission, for He is the true benefactor.

लगा उस से लौ तू
मददगार है वो

On this Holy day of Eid celebration, I present this song in the honor of the Almighty, who is essentially the Father figure for this entire creation. Praise Be Upon Him.

And wishing a very Happy Eid to all friends and readers.
Aameen.

 

Song – Laga Us Se Lau Tu Madadgaar Hai Wo  (Banphool) (1945) Singer – Hemant Kumar, Lyrics – Narendra Nath Tuli, MD – Dhiren Mitra (Dhirendra Chandra Mitra)

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 15
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘झ’ – झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान ॰ ॰ ॰

बस्ती बस्ती पर्वत पर्वत गाता जाये बंजारा  ॰ ॰ ॰

Over the hills and through the valleys; on lonely roads and barren deserts; be it crowded cities or a lonely boatman – there is always a song, and your voice with it, don’t have to search far. . .

– – – – –

What a gem of discovery this song is. I can’t recall having heard it earlier. The film is ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ from 1954. The film itself is not so unfamiliar – three songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. Although of course it is lesser known than its more famous same name predecessor from 1935. Btw, there is another film by the same name in 1977 also.

But this song – such a melodious creation it is, and a surprise that it has remained obscure for such a long time.

The 1954 ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ is produced by MO Suhel for the banner of Suhel Art Productions, Bombay and is directed by SM Raza. Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film, all composed by Aziz Hindi. Four song writers are listed – Manohar Khanna, Jaan Nisar Akhtar, Arshi Ajmeri and Khaawar Zamaa. This song is from the pen of Jaan Nisar Akhtar. An interesting aside, the name of assistant music director is listed as Madan Sachdev. I wonder if this is the same person as S Madan, who gave music for the 1960 film ‘Batwaara’. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please comment on this observation.

The star cast is listed as Shyama, Bharat Bhushan, Agha, NA Ansari, Krishna Kumari, Shameem, Mumtaz, Maqbool, A Roshan, Ahmed, and S Nazeer. And I just recalled something, and confirmed with the anniversaries list. 12 June, that is this past Tuesday, was the birth anniversary of Shyama. And yesterday, 14th June, was the birth anniversary of Bharat Bhushan. Given that they are the lead pair in this film, it is more than likely that this duet song is picturized on them. Earlier this week I was thinking of doing a post on Shyama, but could not get to it. This song turns out to be a bonus in that respect, reviving the memories of these two stalwart artists of Hindi cinema.

A lovely melodious song that is seems to have missed the attention of music lovers. Since I traced out this song on YT, I have heard it many times and simply do not seem to be getting over it. I am sure you will enjoy too.

 

Song – Jhuk Ke Zameen Choom Raha Aasmaan  (Dhoop Chhaaon) (1954) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Aziz Hindi
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

aaa aaaaaa
aaaaaa aaaa aaaaaaaaa
aaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaa aa

jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

dekho sajan kaisi har shai pe khushi chhaayee hai
baat mohabbat ki ban aayi hai
aaj miley do dil
milne ki ghadi aayi hai
kaisi haseen aaj ki tanhaai hai
jhoom raha kab se umangi samaan
choom rahi phool ka munh titliaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

nazron mein lehren hain
haathon mein tera haath hai
mera jahaan aaj mere saath hai
kitni jawaan kaisi rangeen mulaqaat hai
saath mein armaanon ki baraat hai
kehti huin pyaar bhari daastaan
beh rahin saagar ki taraf naddiyaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

आ आ
आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ

झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान
आज गले मिल रहे दोनों जहां
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान
आज गले मिल रहे दोनों जहां
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना

देखो सजन कैसी हर शै पे खुशी छाई है
बात मोहब्बत की बन आई है
आज मिले दो दिल
मिलने की घड़ी आई है
कैसी हसीं आज की तनहाई है
झूम रहा कबसे उमंगीं समां
चूम रही फूल का मुंह तितलियाँ
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान
आज गले मिल रहे दोनों जहां
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना

नज़रों में लहरें हैं
हाथों में तेरा हाथ है
मेरा जहां आज मेरे साथ है
कितनी जवां कैसी रंगीन मुलाक़ात है
साथ में अरमानों की बरात है
कहती हुईं प्यार भरी दास्ताँ
बह रहीं सागर की तरफ नद्दीयां
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान
आज गले मिल रहे दोनों जहां
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना

Missing Films of 1960s – 75
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Thief Of Baghdad’ – a movie that has now became a legend, came to the silver screen almost a hundred years ago, in an era when even Hollywood was still in the silent zone. This archetypal tale adapted from the ‘Tales of a Thousand Nights’ (what we know better as ‘Arabian Nights’), was made into a film by Douglas Fairbanks who wrote the story for the film, produced it and played the lead role. Over the decades, this film has become a seminal benchmark of what fantasy cinema should be. The lavish production was much ahead of its time of the 1920s. In that era, the production cost of the film came to a whopping 1.1 million USD. One has to see to believe the scale of production – towering palaces, fabulous interiors, special effects to blow your mind and a cast of thousands much before Cecil B DeMille put his hand to the camera. This film is available in public domain, and it is a veritable treat to watch.

Over the decades, the film has been remade in Hollywood and also in other parts of the world, sustaining and perpetuating the fantasy of this adorable tale of a petty, brazen, street smart thief whose philosophy in life is “. . . what I like, I take.” His life changes when he sees the sleeping princess and falls in love with her. The plot of the story passes through many twists and turns and magical elements, before the two lovers are joined together. While watching the film, one gets this feeling – haan yes, this is how it happens in the adventure films of Hindi cinema. But the important thing to realize is – here is where it started. This is the original, and what followed are influenced from this one.

In Hindi films, the earliest reference we can garner is a silent film from 1931 – ‘Iraaque Ka Chor’. Although not essentially mentioning Baghdad, and in the absence of any plot details, it is possible that this film follows the Fairbanks original from 1924. Besides the interesting trivia that Baghdad and Basra were probably the only two well known cities of Iraq.

In the era of sound movies, 1934 is the first time this name appears. That year, two films were made – ‘Baghdad Ka Chor’ and ‘Iraaque Ka Chor’. The next in line is the 1946 film ‘Baghdad Ka Chor’, followed again in 1955 by another film of the same name. Then in 1968, we have the Dara Singh starrer ‘Thief Of Baghdad’. In 1977 came another version with the same title, the star cast being led by Shatrughan Sinha, Kabir Bedi and Sulakshana Pandit. In 1978, Kabir Bedi starred in another film by the same name, for TV.

With this song today we bring on board the 1968 film ‘Thief Of Baghdad’. The film is produced by Bohra Brothers and is directed by Shriram. The abbreviated list of actors is Dara Singh, Nishi, Helen, Savita, Jeevankala, P Kailash, BM Vyas, Sheikh, Ravi Kumar, Ram Kumar, Maqbool, Sunanda, Amritrana, Jilani, Sarita Devi, Munshi Munakka, Bijnor, Ramesh Kant, Johnny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Maruti, Rani, Gani, Mohammed Ali, B Sandow, Gulab, Gaffar, Mansoor, Mohammedali Steelman, Vimla, Khursheed and Saudagar Singh. And we see many of them in the video clip of this song.

The information about the songs in Geet Kosh is indicated as being not complete. It lists 5 songs, with indication that more songs are in the film. The film being available, I checked it and I can identify at least one more song which is not listed in Geet Kosh.

The credits of the film identify two songwriters – Aziz Ghaazi and SH Bihari. The writer of this song is not specifically identified. Music is given by Baldev Nath, which most likely is the same person as Baldev Nath Bali or BN Bali.

This song is a raaj darbaar dance song which is performed by Helen and Rani [Jeevankala]. The singing voice is just one, i.e. Asha Bhosle with the lines being shared by the two dancers on screen.
[Ed Note: Thanks to dear Prakash ji for correcting the identification of the lady dancer accompanying Helen in this song.]

In this screen situation, Nishi is the princess who has fallen in love with Dara Singh, a commoner. Dara Singh and his team is captured and are shown in chains. The scheming Wazir, role played by P Kailash (I need help to identify this actor) has imprisoned the King, and has forced the princess to marry him, given that her father and her lover are both his prisoners. So Nishi and this Wazir are seated in the two throne like chairs, and the dance is being performed for the occasion. As per the storyline of this film, Helen performs the role of Dara Singh’s younger sister.
[Ed Note: Once again thanks to dear Prakash ji for identifying the actor playing the role of the Wazir.]

The video clip shows a number of actors. There are two more men in chains. The one in mustard shirt with chains tied to his wrists (again need help to identify this actor) plays the role of Dara Singh’s younger brother in the film. The third person in chains, wearing a black shirt and with chains around his neck is Sheikh. There is a few other actors shown in momentary close up shots, who are also watching this performance. I request other readers and friends to please help identify them.

So with this song, the 1968 film ‘Thief Of Baghdad’ makes its debut on our blog. That also brings the count of films brought on board through this series now to 75. Wow. Let us see how many more we are able to add in the coming weeks. Working on the home work list that Katie Ben prepared for me, we shall not be hitting the century mark on this series, but I think we will get pretty close. 🙂

 

Song – Humko Bhi Marna Hai, Tumko Bhi Marna Hai  (Thief Of Baghdad) (1968) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Baldev Nath

Lyrics

khabrdaar. . .

hoshiyaar. . .

humko bhi marna hai
tumko bhi marna hai

humko bhi marna hai
tumko bhi marna hai
marne se darna kya
jeene ki baaten kar
humko bhi marna hai
tumko bhi marna hai

duniya ke gulshan mein
kaante hazaaron hain
duniya ke gulshan mein
kaante hazaaron hain
kaanton se bachta ja
duniya se daaman bhar
humko bhi marna hai
tumko bhi marna hai

chaahat ki raahon mein
maana ke khatra hai
chaahat ki raahon mein
maana ke khatra hai
phir bhi tu chalta ja
mere ishaaron par
humko bhi marna hai
tumko bhi marna hai

maujon mein rehne de
kashti jawaani ki
maujon mein rehne de
kashti jawaani ki
aata nahin hum ko
marna kinaaron par

humko bhi marna hai
tumko bhi marna hai
marne se darna kya
jeene ki baaten kar
humko bhi marna hai
tumko bhi marna hai

खबरदार॰ ॰ ॰

होशियार॰ ॰ ॰

हमको भी मरना है
तुमको भी मरना है

हमको भी मरना है
तुमको भी मरना है
मरने से डरना क्या
जीने की बातें कर
हमको भी मरना है
तुमको भी मरना है

दुनिया के गुलशन में
कांटे हजारों हैं
दुनिया के गुलशन में
कांटे हजारों हैं
काँटों से बचता जा
दुनिया से दामन भर
हमको भी मरना है
तुमको भी मरना है

चाहत की राहों में
माना के खतरे हैं
चाहत की राहों में
माना के खतरे हैं
फिर भी तू चलता जा
मेरे इशारों पर
हमको भी मरना है
तुमको भी मरना है

मौजों में रहने दे
कश्ती जवानी की
मौजों में रहने दे
कश्ती जवानी की
आता नहीं हम को
मारना किनारों पर

हमको भी मरना है
तुमको भी मरना है
मरने से डरना क्या
जीने की बातें कर
हमको भी मरना है
तुमको भी मरना है

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ज’ – जब घड़ी बोले चार गोरी करके सिंगार ॰ ॰ ॰

॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰
तुम्हें रुकना पड़ेगा, मेरी आवाज़ सुन कर ॰ ॰ ॰

जी, आपकी आवाज़ सुन कर तो हम आज भी रुक जाते हैं।  आप खुद ही कहीं दूर हो, जहां हमारी आवाज़ शायद नहीं पहुँचती॰ ॰ ॰

Looking at the title line, I am tempted to start searching for songs which are built around the theme of the clock and  time on the clock. Yes, there are a few songs that come to mind, but then likely many of them are probably already here on the blog. Let me see.

Coming to the next letter in the alphabet for this series. The song that I have selected is a duet of Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur from the film ‘Gambler’. Not, this is not the 1971 Dev Sb starer, but an obscure and forgotten film from 1960. One song of this film is posted on the blog in July 2013. Close to five years now, that we are getting to revisit this film and add to its counter.

When I look at the detailed credits of this film, I am a bit surprised that this film is obscure and unfamiliar. The banner name is Vikas Productions from Bombay. More important, the producers of this film are Ram Kamlani and Dwarka Khosla, the latter being also the director of this film.

The star cast is quite, rather very impressive, for it includes Premnath, Shakeela, Agha, Poornima, Pran, KN Singh, Shammi, Madan Puri, Kanchanmala, Kukku, Mridula, Raja Amrohi, Jai Kumar, Meena, Ram Kamlani. Hmmm, a Premnath and Shakeela starrer in the late 1950s. . . should have been a better known film.

Anyway, seven songs listed. All songs from the pen of Prem Dhawan and music by Chitragupt, assisted by Dilip Dholakia. The song itself has a peculiar signature – a long pause of silence in the middle of the last word in last lines of the mukhda and the antaraas. I can’t recall a similar tune design for a song in Hindi films.

The song is a ‘nok-jhonk’ song – the gentleman says something to offend the lady to start with, she complains about it, he retracts and apologizes, and then all is well once again. And the planned tryst at 4 O’Clock is very much on. The pause becomes so noticeable, as the rest of song is quite fast paced. As I said, a peculiar tune design experimented by Chitragupt. A fun song, I am sure you will enjoy.

Song – Jab Ghadi Bole Chaar Gori Kar Ke Singaar  (Gambler) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt
Mohammed Rafi + Suman Kalyanpur

Lyrics

jab ghadi bole chaar

jab ghadi bole chaar
gori kar ke singaar

bolo pa. . . .kki
jab ghadi bole chaar

khoti kar ke taalna
bas tera to ye kaam hai
tu kya jaane pyaar bhi
kis chidiya ka naam hai
oo oo oo oo
meri baaten nahin khel
o meri baaten nahin khel
sachcha hai ye dil ka mel
teri khaatir jaaun jail
peesoon cha. . . .kki
sainyaan karo aitbaar
main hoon aisi hoshiyaar
jab baje paune chaar
aaun na. . . .kki
jab ghadi bole chaa..aa..aar

yun na khota jaan ri tu
hum mardon ki baat ko
haan samjhi
yun na khota jaan ri tu
hum mardon ki baat ko
tu boley to aaun main
paidal aadhi raat ko
oo oo oo oo
achha maani teri baat
thank you
achha maani teri baat
to phir de haathon mein haath
hoga tera mera saath
bada lu. . . .ckky
jab ghadi bole chaar
gori kar ke singaar
chali aana us paar
bolo pa. . . .kki
sainyaan karo aitbaar
main hoon aisi hoshiyaar
jab baje paune chaar
aaun na. . . .kki
jab ghadi bole chaa..aa..aar

जब घड़ी बोले चार
गोरी कर के सिंगार
चली आना उस पार
बोलो प॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
सैंयां करो एतबार
मैं हूँ ऐसी होशियार
जब बजे पौने चार
आऊँ न॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चा॰॰आर

कहती पौने चार है
पर आती साड़े सात है
अरे कहती पौने चार है
पर आती साड़े सात है
बोले भी तो क्या बोले
तू औरत की ज़ात है
ओ ओ ओ ओ
करे उल्टी उल्टी बात
करे उल्टी उल्टी बात
कहे दिन को भी रात
जा ना बोलूँ तेरे साथ
तू है झ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चार
गोरी कर के सिंगार
चली आना उस पार
बोलो प॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चार

खोटी कर के टालना
बस तेरा ये काम है
तू क्या जाने प्यार भी
किस चिड़िया का नाम है
ओ ओ ओ ओ
मेरी बातें नहीं खेल
ओ मेरी बातें नहीं खेल
सच्चा है ये दिल का मेल
तेरी खातिर जाऊँ जेल
पीसूँ च॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
सैंयां करो एतबार
मैं हूँ ऐसी होशियार
जब बजे पौने चार
आऊँ न॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चा॰॰आर

यूं ना खोटा जान री तू
हम मर्दों की बात को
हाँ समझी
यूं ना खोटा जान री तू
हम मर्दों की बात को
तू बोले तो आऊँ मैं
पैदल आधी रात को
ओ ओ ओ ओ
अच्छा मानी तेरी बात
थैंक यू
अच्छा मानी तेरी बात
तो फिर दे हाथों में हाथ
होगा तेरा मेरा साथ
बड़ा ल॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चार
गोरी कर के सिंगार
चली आना उस पार
बोलो प॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
सैंयां करो एतबार
मैं हूँ ऐसी होशियार
जब बजे पौने चार
आऊँ न॰ ॰ ॰ ॰क्की
जब घड़ी बोले चा॰॰आर
