‘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.

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

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

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

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 36

“सावन की परी चुप चुप है खड़ी

I came across this song for the first time, few weeks ago. It has been sitting in the hard disk for quite some time now, one of a set of songs of Rafi Sb that Bakshish Singh ji gave to me. On some prompting thought in the mind, I just played this song, as I was searching for a song starting with ‘स’, and goodness, just could not believe that this wonderful gem of a song has been sitting away from mainstream listening. Later, when I checked online, this song is posted on YT more than once, implying it is not so rare as I would imagine. Oh but, what a song, what a song.
