Today, we are celebrating the 3400th day that this blog has been operating.

And we Yippeee a film that has been waiting for more than two years for the final song to come online. 🙂

Sometimes, Atul ji springs a wonderful surprise. And at a very short notice too. It is 8.30 pm in the night (on 7th Nov). I am just casually checking my emails. Plop. There is a message from him. We have a significant and a very different type of milestone lined up for tomorrow (8th Nov). The immediate next sentence, he is quickly clarifying that no, the said milestone has nothing to do with demonetization anniversary or any other subject of Indian economy. The next sentence he clarifies, without building any suspense or delays in his words. 8th Nov is exactly the 3400th day of the continued existence of our blog. A few lights start blinking inside the head. Wow, – thanks ji, – what a surprise, – such a different type of milestone, – gosh tomorrow, – what a scramble, – and in a secret corner, another light blinks that says – अरे सर, थोड़ा एडवांस नोटिस तो देना चाहिए॰ ॰ ॰ खैर॰ ॰ ॰

Blinking lights aside, many congratulations to all members, friends and readers, and welcome to the 3400th edition of Atul Song A Day, in which, I must emphasize, at the cost of repetition, that the phrase song-a-day has been redundant for, well, let us see – 28th Aug, 2008, i.e. 40 days less, that is 3360 days – I mean the period of redundancy of this phrase. You see, 28th Aug, 2008 was the day (41st in the history of this blog) that Atul ji shifted gears and posted 3 songs in a single day, for the first time. See, that is how long his solemn promise lasted. In just forty days, he was so overwhelmed and got carried away that instead of song-a-day, it was three-songs-a-day that day.

[Tongue in cheek] – I am sure folks in all parts of this subcontinent will be aware and will agree; the tradition is to celebrate the 40th day after childbirth, as the day when the mother of the newborn child, is allowed to start moving outside the confines of the household. There is a celebration and a ceremony to mark this event. (Of course in the current times, quite a few people do not bother to abide by this tradition, which, if I may be allowed to emphasize, has very important reasons of health and well being behind it). But we note that Atul ji quite religiously followed this tradition, and stayed put on one song per day for forty days. And then he ventured out further – starting with the song “Aap Ke Anurodh Pe Main Ye Geet Sunaata Hoon” (film ‘Anurodh’, 1977), on the forty first day. I must add that Atul ji has been a very conscientious ‘mother’, for the first forty days, and for all the days thereafter. 🙂

So, in the tradition of adding new feathers to the caps, we are now adding one more dimension by which we measure the robustness of our blog and its level of enthusiasm / commitment  / entertainment value. No of days that we have been in operation. Today – it is 34 hundred days that are completed. And counting. . .

Changing the topic briefly – I would like to touch upon the query that was raised yesterday by Peevesie’s Mom, regarding the number of posts and the number of songs contained therein. Although we count one post only once, there are many occasions that a single post carries more than one song.

Yes, there are posts that have multiple songs on account of the songs being present more than once in the film, or have been sung by different singers in the same film. Sometimes the multi singer songs are exactly the same, and sometimes they have different antaraas. Same for multi part songs. In some cases, the multiple appearances of the song in the film carry the same lines, and in some cases, they carry different lines.

In cases where the multiple appearance of the song is in the voice of the same singer, and the words are unchanged, then we count them as one song only. However, if the singing voice is different then we count them as multiple songs. Also, if the singing voice being the same, if the words and lines are different, then also we count them as multiple songs.

Another criteria that we follow is to adhere to the listings in the HFGK. In the Geet Kosh, songs which are multi part, or multi singer are listed separately. And so we also follow that scheme to count the songs. An interesting aside here is that the Geet Kosh counts the different parts of the multi-lingual songs, as separate songs. And so do we, counting each part of the multi lingual song as a separate song. The case in point is the last line in the table below. This is the muti lingual song from the film ‘Teen Batti Chaar Raasta’ (1953) “Orey Oo Poraan Bondhu Re. . .”. This song is the post number 10967 (dt 24Mar2015). Geet Kost lists this song as seven separate lines, one for each language covered. And so, on our blog too, we count them as 7 songs, albeit contained in one post.

A few posts carry the original song as well as the version song, which is not carried in the film. E.g. the song “Chhupo Na Chhupo Na Chhupo Na” from film ‘My Sister’ (1944); both the versions – in the voices of KL Saigal and Pankaj Mullick – are contained in the post no. 807 (dt. 26Feb2009), although the film carries the Saigal Sb version only.

Please note that the audio and video versions of the same song are not counted as extras.

When the blog arrived at the 13700th milestone on 4th November just passed, the total number songs contained within these posts reached the number of 14200, exactly five hundred more than the number of posts.

The breakup of multi-songs within posts is as follows,

  • Posts containing 2 songs counted – 410 –  410 extra
  • Posts containing 3 songs counted – 34     –  68 extra
  • Posts containing 4 songs counted – 4       –  12 extra
  • Posts containing 5 songs counted – 1        –   4 extra
  • Posts containing 6 songs counted – 0
  • Posts containing 7 songs counted – 1        –   6 extra

In the above listing, the first number in the row is the number of posts for that category (2 songs or 3 songs etc.), and the second number is the number of additional songs that we count, because of this phenomena. The above list tells us that there are a total of 450 posts out of 13,700, which carry more than one song. This number is the total of the first column in the above lines. The total of the second column gives us the number of additional songs that are carried in these posts, which round figure of 500 extra songs (till 4th Nov that is).

A thought here is that we can request Atul ji to also publish the number of songs, along with the number of posts, on the home page.

Now coming to the song for today. At first, I had some courageous and wishful thoughts to try and search for a song that has something to do with ‘thirty four thousand’ or even ‘thirty four’, you know, just like we had a readymade song for the 11000th post (“Gyaarah Hazaar Ladkiyaan”). But I very soon gave up that pursuit as impractical. And so, in consultation with Atul ji, I bring on board a Yippeee song – a rare one that was not even available online so far. The film is ‘First Love’ from 1961. This film carries six songs. Five of these songs are already posted here. These are

  1. Beete Huye Din Kuchh Aise Hi Hain
  2. Maano Ya Na Maano
  3. Mujhe Mil Gayi Hai Muhabbt Ki Manzil
  4. Wo Dekho Aayi Bahaaren Laayi
  5. Mere Pyaar Mein Ya Wafa Na Thhi

The first two songs listed above, were posted in Dec 2011. The third song came on board in Jun 2012. Then after almost two years, the fourth song made its appearance in Apr 2014. Exactly a year later, the 5th song arrived in Apr 2015. After that, likely the lack of online availability of this song disallowed this film from being Yippeee’d. i.e. till now, more than two and half years later.

This last song which is a wonderful duet by Suman Kalyanpur and Kamal Barot, has now been uploaded and the Yippeee call for this film can now be made. The words are from the pen of Gulshan Bawra and the music is by Dattaram. The very prominent Dattu ‘theka’ rhythm of dholak is very prominently heard in the antaraas.

The list of actors in this film includes Mehmood, Naaz, Preetibala, Raj Mehra, Amar, SN Bannerji, amongs others. The list contains only these two names of lady actors. Possibly this song could have been picturized on Naaz and Preetibala, but that is just a guess.

So, 3400 days, 13710 posts (yes, this post is no. 13710), and 14210 songs. So many milestones and measuring dimensions, and counting. But anyway, do listen to this fantastic duet song, with such an endearing rhythm created by Dattaram. And enjoy.

Ah yes, saving the best for the last. What a wonderful lilting song this one is. With this post we bring to completion the list of all songs for the film ‘Maan’ (1954). So, another Yippeee moment for this blog. Congratulations to all readers and all members of this musical bandwagon.

‘Maan’ is a costume drama which is produced by Rajendra Jain for the banner of Filmkaar Ltd., Bombay. The film is directed by Safdar ‘Aah’ Sitapuri, who has also penned five of the nine songs in this film. The remaining four songs are shared between Raja Mehdi Ali Khan (1) and Kaif Bhopali (3). Music is from the mind of Anil Biswas (assisted by Ram Singh). The cast of actors includes Ajit, Chitra, Durga Khote, Jaagirdar, Kumar, Achala Sachdev, Yashodhara Katju, Kamlesh Kumari and Chanda Bai etc.

As per the footnotes in the Geet Kosh, originally eleven songs in all were recorded for this film. Two songs were later cancelled and not included in the film. The mukhdas of the songs are – “Aati Na Yun Bahaaren. . .” in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, and “Ye Achha Sauda Hum Ne Kiya. . .” in the voice of Shamshad Begum. It appears that these two songs, although recorded, were not released on gramophone records. No other information or trace of these songs is available as yet.

The eight songs posted earlier are listed below, in the order of their appearance on the blog. The Geet Kosh serial no. is added in brackets at the end of each line.

  1. Dam Bhar Ka Thaa Daur Khushi Ka (7)
  2. Mere Pyaar Mein Tujhe Kyaa Milaa (4)
  3. Allah Bhi Hai Mallah Bhi Hai (8)
  4. Keh Do Ke Muhabbat Se Na Takraaye Zamaana (6)
  5. Guzra Hua Ulfat Ka Zamaana (5)
  6. Main Kya Karoon Rukti Nahin Ashqon Ki Rawaani (1)
  7. O O O Phaili Hai Khabar (2)
  8. Kya Bataayen Chheen Kar Mutthi Mein Wo Kya Le Chale (9)

The foot notes in the Geet Kosh carry a very interesting side story. And it has to do with the iconic film ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960). As per the foot note, which is short and cryptic, the song at serial no. 8 (in GK) – “Allah Bhi Hai Mallah Bhi Hai” was originally recorded for the film ‘Mughal e Azam’ by Anil Biswas, and later this song was included in this film.

A little more detailed background is available from the annual publication of Society of Indian Record Collectors (SIRC). When K Asif planned for this film originally in the mid 1940s, the mantle for being the music director was assigned to Anil Biswas. The original cast of actors included Chandramohan, Nargis, Sapru, and Veena. Apparently, the roles to be played were assigned as Chandramoha – Shahenshah Akbar, Sapru – Salim, Nargis – Anarkali and Veena – Jodha Bai. During the remaining part of the decade, all the original planning was disturbed. Partition was foisted upon this country. The financier for this film migrated to the new nation of Pakistan in 1947. And in 1949, Chandramohan passed away. Sapru, who was a rising star in 1945, turned out to be not so popular a hero over the next 3 to 4 years. A few reels of this film were already shot.

With all these adverse changes forced by the circumstances, K Asif revamped his planning. By the time 1950s came about, he had brought in Prithviraj Kapoor in place of Chandramohan and Dilip Kumar in place of Sapru. Dilip Kumar and Nargis were already working together in Asif Sb’s other venture – ‘Hulchul’ which was released in 1951. Asif faced quite a bit of turbulent time on the sets with this lead pair. The relations between the two were very strained, and ‘Hulchul’ was somehow completed. Beyond 1951, Asif Sb realized the futility of having this lead pair to continue together for ‘Mughal e Azam’. He made a decision to replace Nargis, retaining Dilip Kumar in the role of Salim. Later on, Madhubala was approached for the role of Anarkali.

Now coming to the music director. Asif Sb in his productions seems not to have tied himself to any one music director. His first film, ‘Phool’ released in 1945, has Ghulam Haider Sb as the music director. Then the initial announcement of ‘Mughal e Azam’ had Anil Biswas as the MD. When this film was put on hold, and Asif Sb started to work on ‘Hulchul’, he contracted Sajjad Husain Sb for being the music director. The working relationship between the two was not amiable, and Sajjad Sb opted out before the music work was complete. Asif Sb then brought in Mohammed Shafi to complete the MD’s work for the film. Three of the ten songs of ‘Hulchul’ are composed by Shafi Sb. The next – as the work in ‘Mughal e Azam’ got restarted, we find Naushad Sb in the role of MD. I have not been able to locate any information as to why this change was made.

As per Geet Kosh, the song “Allah Bhi Hai Mallah Bhi Hai”, was originally recorded for ‘Mughal e Azam’. As I scan the list of songs of ‘Mughal e Azam’, my intuition says that in the final version of the film, the song “Bekas Pe Karam Kijiye Sarkaar e Madina” took the place of “Allah Bhi Hai . . .”. However, my intuition actually goes one step further. After I read about original recordings by Anil Biswas, I scanned the song lists of the two films and tried to do a comparison. It is possible that there may have been more songs originally created by Anil Biswas. In my mind, I can locate at least one more coincidence. The song from the final version of ‘Mughal e Azam’ – “Zindabad Zindabad, Ae Mohabbat Zindabad”, is very likely a replacement song for the original – “Keh Do Ke Mohabbat Se Na Takraaye Zamaana”. The fervor and the rebellious tone of the both the songs is quite similar in intensity.

So much for the digression, let me come back to the song for today. And the singer – Meena Kapoor. The mention of this name immediately brings to the mind the iconic song “Rasiya Re Man Basiya Re” from the 1957 film ‘Pardesi’. And then some others – “Kuchh Aur Zamaana Kehta Hai” from ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ (1965), “Kachchi Hai Umariya, Kori Hai Chunariya” from ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ (1959), “Laagi Naahi Chhote Raama, Chaahe Jiya Jaaye” from ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962), again from ‘Pardesi’ – “Rimi Jhimi Barse Paani Ho Aaj Morey Angnaa”. And the iconic “Mori Atariya Pe Kaaga Boley, Mora Jiya Doley” from ‘Aankhen’ (1950). And yes, she is the accompanying singer to C Ramchandra in another iconic, nay, almost a cult song – “Aana Meri Jaan Meri Jaan Sunday Ke Sunday” from ‘Shehnaai’ (1947). In a career that spanned two decades from 1946 to 1965, Meena ji has sung approximately 160 songs in Hindi films.

Meena ji was born on 27th August, 1930 in Calcutta, literally in the lap of New Theatres. Her father, Birkam Kapoor, was a character artist with the New Theatres at that time. He was a close associate and a good friend of KL Saigal, KC Dey, Prithviraj Kapoor and Pahadi Sanyal. We have seen him in films like ‘Karwaan e Hayaat’ (1935), ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935), ‘President’ (1937), and ‘Street Singer’ (1938). In 1940-41, when we see an exodus of the premier stars from Calcutta to Bombay, Bikrma Kapoor also moved to Bombay with his family. The young Meena grew up in the company of stalwart uncles, and the lights and cameras of shooting studios.

Not much details are available about her early years and her development as a singer. When she was sixteen, KC Dey gave her the first break as a singer in the film ‘Door Chalen’ (1946). KC Dey was the music director for this film. Meena ji sang three songs in this film, two duets (with KC Dey) and one solo – “Aa Gayi Aa Gayi Zindagi Mein Ik Nayi Kahaani Aa Gayi”. In the same year, SD Burman, who was making his debut in Hindi films with ‘Eight Days’ also gave her an opportunity to sing under his music direction – “Kisi Se Meri Preet Lagi Ab Kyaa Karoon”. Then 1947 happened to be, and the nation wide popularity of “Sunday Ke Sunday” made her a household name. With a sweetness and a scampering youthfulness in her voice, she soon became a singer popular and in demand with the music directors. Till 1954, she was a busy artist with almost 110 songs from about 60 films.

Many of her songs became very popular. A sampling – “Main Birhan Baithi Jaagun” (film ‘Gopinath’, 1948); “Yaad Rakhna Chaand Taaron” (film ‘Anokha Pyaar’, 1948); “Boot Polish Karwa Le Baabu” (film ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’, 1948); “Main Reh Gayi Ankhiyaan Malti Re” (film ‘Anyaay’ (1949); “Lo Jawaani Ka Zamaana Aa Gayaa” (film ‘Aadhi Raat’, 1950); “Kabhi Tum Khwaab Mein Chupke Se Aa Jaate” (film ‘Gul Sanobar’ (1953); “Chaand So Gaya Taare So Gaye” (film ‘Raahi’, 1953); “Ek Kali Aur Do Patiyaan” with Hemant Kumar (also from ‘Raahi’, 1953);“Aag Chhidak Gai Chaandni Morey Gorey Badan Pe” (‘Aagosh’, 1953); “Ek Dharti Hai Ek Hai Gagan” (film ‘Adhikaar’, 1954); “Mere Chanchal Naina Ras Ke Bhare” (‘Angulimaal’, 1960); “Dil Hamko Dhoondhtaa Hai” (film ‘Return of Mr Superman’, 1960); and many more in between.

As per Geet Kosh listings, her voice appears once again in the film ‘Suhaani Raat’ which was released in 1974. The music director is Ram Ganguly. It is noted that this film was produced much earlier, but its release was delayed significantly. I have not yet located more information on this film, and I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to kindly add more information about this film if available. The Geet Kosh notes that Meena Kapoor’s voice is used in this film, but singer names against individual songs are not specified.

The song being presented today, is my favorite from the list of songs of this film. Other than “Keh Do Ke Mohabbat Se Na Takraaye Zamaana”. In a list of songs (of this film) that has many superb creations, I like this song for its natural perkiness, and a joyous celebration of having discovered the emotion of love. Simple words, simply rendered, but oh so effectively tuned together, bringing out the brimming happiness, even so that the play of words is unmindful of the words themselves. This is the first time I have come across the word ‘dilaar’, spoken in conjunction with ‘dilbar’ and ‘dildaar’, the latter one itself is somewhat accentuated as ‘dil e daar’. The lighthearted pleasure in the construction of the lines and cheerful levity in their rendering make this song so delightful and endearing.

Enjoy this lovely creation – Anil Biswas, Safdar ‘Aah’, and Meena Kapoor – superbly done.

[Ed Note: The song has been uploaded on YouTube by our very own Sadanand Kamath ji.]

‘Shehzaadi’ (1947) is a film about which not much information is available online except that it was produced under the banner of Shalimar Pictures owned by WZ Ahmed and the film belonged to the costume drama genre. I had searched extensively on the internet about the star cast and the director but drew a blank. Earlier, I had even a doubt whether the film was actually released.

Missing Films of 1960s – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

At the beginning of this month, June 1st, I had a personal reminder to myself – passing away anniversary of Khwaja Ahmed Abbas. I was wanting to do a brief remembrance post. Other “things” intervened and the day came and went. Then, it so happened that on the 15th June, there was a set of reminders and requests for the birth centenary celebrations of Sajjaad Husain. Not many “things” intervened that day, and I was able to locate a rare recording of a song from film ‘Dharam’ (1945), as yet unposted, and was able to post the remembrance article in good time. You may remember the title line of that song “Chali Pawan Purvaai, Chali Pawan”.

In the 1940s, Lala Jagat Narayan of Jagat Talkies Distribution was one of the biggest controller of the chains of theatres and film distributions network in Northern India having his office at Chandni Chowk in Delhi. He was regarded as an undisputed king of film distribution and exhibition. By virtue of his experience in film distribution and exhibition business, he was in a better position to assess the likes and dislikes of the film audience.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 13
———————————————————————-

गाता जाये बंजारा

That is the image that forms in the mind. A distant, unfamiliar scenario. A solitary person trudging along a dusty road that leads through farms and fields, passing through towns big and small.

There is a purpose in the pace. There is a steadiness in the tread. There seems to be an unhurried and patient urgency in the forward movement.

Is he searching for someone, for something? Is he expecting a certain destination? I don’t know. The landmarks, they come and go, the milestones pass by. But he appears not to halt anywhere, never seems to take rest. Just a pause at a milestone, sees it with a searching eye, takes another breath, and then presses on.

He seems to be carrying something, slung on the shoulders. Is that an instrument of music? Or is it something else? What is it, I am not able to make out.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 12
———————————————————————-

Atul ji has become a legend now 🙂 . Anybody disagrees? I dont think so. Who else has achieved what he has achieved – a mammoth task of collecting information about 10,000 songs and then writing/sharing the same with like-minded enthusiasts. A monumental work, unselfish to the core. What sacrifices he must have made, how much time he would have spent, what passion he must be having to carry on blogging relentlessly for almost 9 years!! You would get an idea of it when you go through one of his write-ups for the song “Kitne Bhi Tu Kar Le Sitam“. Forget about miserly people running such a blog, it is not a possibility at all. Even a person earning good amount of money would hesitate to do it. You will understand my statement in its full extent only if you read the above-mentioned write-up.

OK so, ‘Ek Ladki Saat Ladke’ from 1961, is the film that today joins the ranks of films with all their songs posted. It is Yippeee-land time for this film. And that’s all folks, that I can say for this film. Another one of the ‘Lost Children’, about whom nothing more is known, nothing more exists in memory. Yes, there is information that is contained in the Geet Kosh. Based on the Geet Kosh inputs, the basic demographics for this film are as follows.

The film is produced and directed by Roop K Shorey. The cast of actors is very brief – Ravinder Kapoor, Ameeta, Majnu, Badri Prasad, and Durga Khote. After having tasted success with ‘Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949) and ‘Ek Do Teen’ (1953), Roop K Shorey tried to repeat a similar sounding formula in this film.  The earlier two films had Motilal and Meena K Shorey as the lead pair, and Vinod as the music director.  But in this film, the only common link is Vinod, who also was replaced by S Mohinder, in unfortunate circumstances.
