Ah yes – ‘Hunterwaali’. Seems that just like Tarzan, ‘Hunterwaali’ has been quite a favorite title and theme for film producers in India. The original ‘Hunterwaali’ was released in 1935 – with Fearless Nadia assaying the title role. This was followed in 1943 with a title variation of ‘Hunterwaali Ki Beti’. Then in 1959 came another ‘Hunterwaali’, this time the title role being played by Mehru. In 1972, came a production from the south. The female lead role was played by Jyotilakshmi. In 1978, yes, one more ‘Hunterwaali’ film was released. And guess, the lady playing the title role – it is Bindu.
[Ed Note: Atul ji points out that there is another ‘Hunterwaali’ film right there from the year 1959; the title is ‘Miss Hunterwaali’.]

After 1978, for lack of recorded data, it cannot be certainly said what other ‘Hunterwaali’ films came. There is a Bhojpuri film by this name in 2014-15. YouTube also informs us that there was a film by this title, produced in Pakistan also, in 1988.

As per the details recorded in HFGK, the film is produced by Madhav Rao and Rustom Irani under the banner of Golden Movies Corporation, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The cast of actors is listed as Mehru, Samar Roy, Habeeb, Ram Raseela, Mirajkar, Jeet Bala, Kailash, Shri Bhagwan, Sattar, and Mohammad amongst others. Five songs are listed for this film. All the songs are written by Shaad. As I checked for this lyricists name in the Geet Kosh, I find that his name appears in just one more film viz., ‘Rifle Girl’ in 1958, which is also already represented here on our blog. Interestingly, the music director for ‘Rifle Girl’ (1958) and ‘Hunterwaali’ (1959) is the same – Harbans. In the Geet Kosh, we see his name appear in eight films over a period of 1958 to 1966.

Coming to the song itself. This wonderful melodious song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. The beginning of the song is so stirring. The chorus sound of “Lallal Laara, Lallaara” immediately speaks of a promise of a wonderful song to follow. And the promise is verily kept by the music director. One may listen to this tune and may comment that this tune is familiar, and that it is adapted from such and such and such other songs. But that analysis is not important. The lilt and the joy in this melody speaks for itself. Yet once again, the observations pan out – an obscure film (1960s and earlier), unknown or really very less known artists, nothing much available as information – all these characteristics combine to ensure some very lovely and mostly unheard, unfamiliar songs. This instance is no less.

So with this lilting song, the 1958 version of ‘Hunterwaali’ makes its debut on our blog today.

ना जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया॰ ॰ ॰

The touch was of magic. But the real life is so different from reel life. A career that spanned well over five decades, the opportunities for this magic touch weren’t many.

Remembering Naqsh Lyallpuri on the anniversary of his birth (24th Feb).

The full real name of this poet was Jaswant Rai Sharma. He was born in 1928, in the Lyallpur town (now in Pakistan, and renamed to Faislabad). His father was an engineer and he wanted young Jaswant to follow his footsteps and be an engineer. His mother passed away when he was only six, and his father remarried. As the young child grew through his school and college days, his interest in literature became evident and prominent. He drifted apart from his father, for the obvious reason that his father did not look kindly at the literary interest of his son, whom he had dreamt of being another engineer in the family.

When he was 18, he went to work with Hero Publishers, a publishing house in Layallpur. Just about a year later, partition happened, and he moved with family to Lucknow. His literary and poetic interests and activities met with a stern disapproval from his father. The drift made the young Jaswant leave home and move to Bombay, in search of a career as a songwriter. He took on the pen name of ‘Naqsh’ – meaning an imprint or an impression, and added Lyallpuri, being the town of his birth.

The early years, rather the early decades were just a struggle. He first started working with Times of India as a proof reader, and later got an employment with the Post Office. As for literary activities, he was drawn into the theatre activities to start with and started writing stage plays. Here, he came in touch with actor Ram Mohan, who in turn, introduced him to Jagdish Sethi. After reading some of his poetical works, Jagdish Sethi gave the first opportunity to write for films. He (Jagdish Sethi) was in the process of making the film ‘Jaggu’, which got released in 1952. He introduced Naqsh to the music director of the film – Hansraj Behl. And Naqsh got to write one song for this film.

The lyricist and the MD struck up a good friendship, and Hansraj Behl called upon Naqsh to write for him again in ‘Pensioner’ (1954) and ‘Mast Qalandar’ (1955). And so the career train started to move, albeit quite slowly. In 1955, he got his first independent assignment as a a lyricist for the film ‘Teen Sardar (1955), for which he wrote 6 songs. In ones and twos, songs written by him started getting popular. However, recognition as an impressive songwriter eluded him till the latter part of 1960s.  In 1968 came the film ‘Teri Talaash Mein’. The film did not do well, but its songs became very popular. With music by Sapan-Jagmohan, songs like “Kho Diye Hain Sanam Teri Talash Mein” in Asha Bhosle’s voice, the Rafi rendition of “Teri Awaaz Ki Jaadugari Se”, another one by Asha Bhosle – “Raaze-Dil Hamse Kaho Hum To Koi Ghair Nahin” etc. became very well known.

From here starts the ascendency of Naqsh Sb’s popularity. Continuing from this 1968 musical hit, he found the popular pulse with songs like “Main To Har Mod Par Tujhko Doonga Sadaa” (‘Chetna’, 1970), “Sajaaya Na Karo Phool Baalon Pe” (‘Gunaahon Ke Raaste’, 1970), “Jindagi Ke Mod Par Hum Tum Mile. . .” (‘Mann Tera Tan Mera’, 1971), “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan” (‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Le Chalo, Le Chalo, Ab Kahin Le Chalo” (‘Maan Jaaiye’, 1972), “Kai Sadiyon Se Kai Janmon Se” (‘Milaap’, 1973), “Rasm e Ulfat Ko Nibhaayen To Nibhaayen Kaise” (‘Dil Ki Raahen’, 1973), “Ye Shaam Hai Dhuaan Dhuaan” (‘Ek Naao Do Kinaare’, 1973), “Mere Mann Pawan Sang Udd Chal” (‘Ek Naari Do Roop’,1973), “Do Honth Hile Ek Geet Suna” (‘Nai Duniya Naye Log’, 1973), “Ulfat Mein Zamaane Ki Har Rasm Ko Thukraao” (‘Call Girl’, 1974), “Har Janam Mein Hamaara Milan” (‘Kaagaz Ki Naao’, 1975), “Tumhen Ho Na Ho Mujhko To. . .” (‘Ghraonda’, 1977), “Tumhen Dekhti Hoon To Lagta Hai Aise” (‘Tumhaare Liye’, 1978), “Yeh Mulaaqaat Ek Bahaana Hai” (‘Khandaan’, 1979), “Phir Teri Yaad Naye Deep Jalaane Aayi” (‘Aayee Teri Yaad’, 1980), “Maana Teri Nazar Mein Tera Pyaar Hum Nahin” (‘Ahista Ahista’, 1981), “Na Jaane Kye Hua, Jo Tu Ne Chhoo Liya” and “Pyaar Ka Dar Hai, Meetha Meetha, Pyaara Pyaara” (‘Dard’, 1981) – an many more.

In 2005, when Naushad Sb came on board for composing music for the film ‘Taj Mahal’, then Naqsh Lyallpuri was called upon to write the songs. Again, then in 2007, when Khaiyyaam Sb was scoring the music for the film ‘Yatra’, Naqsh Sb wrote the songs. A journey of almost six decades, that started in 1952 with the song “Agar Teri Aankhon Se Aankhen Mila Doon”, continued into next millennium, with elan.

In 2016, he had a fall, and a hip bone fracture. He was hospitalized in October 2016, and never did recover from this injury. He passed away on 22nd Jan, 2017.

Dhala Din Aise, Doob Gaya Jaise
Jalta Sooraj Raat Ke Gehre Andhere Mein…  (‘Laal Kothi’, 1978)

The song I present today is from an extremely obscure film from 1960 – ‘Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar’, which also carried the alternate title as ‘Black Rider’. The film makes its debut on our blog today. This film is directed by Mehmood, for the production banner of Screen Arts. The cast of actors of this costume drama film is listed briefly as Kaamran, Krishna Kumari, Habeeb, Sham, and Najma. The film has five songs listed, all penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Harbans.

A very delightful song of aspirations of love, it is a lovely rendition by Sudha Malhotra.

 

Song – Maine Dekha Hai Sapna Bahaar Ka  (Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar) (1960) Singer – Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Harbans

Lyrics

maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

main na samjhoon
main na jaanoon
koi bataaye mujhko kya ho gaya hai
jhukti jaayen
meri palken
baithe bithaae mera dil kho gaya hai
dil kho gaya hai
rang aankhon mein jhalke khumaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

chupke chupke
dil mein apne
maine basaa li hai duniya niraali
mere armaan
khil gaye hain
jabse mila hai mujhe bagiya ka maali
bagiya ka maali
haal poochho na dil e beqaraar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

pyar ban ke
aane waala
laaya hai mere liye naghme khushi ke
zindgagi ne
rang badla
ab na lagenge mujhe din pheeke pheeke
din pheeke pheeke
yehi mausam hai mere singaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

मैं ना समझूँ
मैं ना जानूँ
कोई बताए मुझे क्या हो गया है
झुकती जाएँ
मेरी पलकें
बैठे बिठाये मेरा दिल खो गया है
दिल खो गया है
रंग आँखों में झलके खुमार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

चुपके चुपके
दिल में अपने
मैंने बसा ली है दुनिया निराली
मेरे अरमां
खिल गए हैं
जबसे मिला है मुझे बगिया का माली
बगिया का माली
हाल पूछो न दिल ए बेक़रार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

प्यार बनके
आने वाला
लाया हैं मेरे लिए नग़में खुशी के
ज़िंदगी ने
रंग बदला
अब ना लगेंगे मुझे दिन फीके फीके
दिन फीके फीके
यही मौसम है मेरे सिंगार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

Blog Day : 3508 Post No. : 14096

Today, 24th February is the birth anniversary of Talat Mehmood (born 1924).

There are approximately 650 film songs identified, as being sung by him. It is a known fact that during the decade of 1950s, Talat Sb spent more of his energies in trying to establish himself as an actor-singer. He had the presence and the looks of a leading hero, plus a voice that at one time had stolen the hearts of film goers and listeners. But the on-screen combination somehow did never strike a rapport with the audience, getting only a lukewarm reception at the box office. Rising from the mid 1940s along with the other mainstream singers, he allowed his ratings as a playback singer to falter, in his effort to be a singing start. Now, it is just a matter of speculation how the history of Hindi films and Hindi film music could have been different, had some different choices had been made by Talat Sb.

In this context, it is very interesting to note that the decade of 1950 evolved in the manner it did – given that some leading singers made some different choices. The other names that come to mind are Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Mukesh also focused his energies on becoming an actor, for a good part of the early half of 1950s. Similarly, Kishore Kumar did not focus on being a dedicated playback singer – he also first went the actor route to establish himself in the industry. It is recognized that he was successful to a great extent to establish himself as an actor of some merit and popular following, with a continuous string of films that mattered. But even for him, his career as an actor eclipsed by mid 1960s, and his decision to come into his own as a playback singer in late 1960s, did wonders of a different type in his career. And so the debate about ‘What if. . .’ applied to these three singers is interesting, but of course a moot exercise. The history of Hindi film music is what it is. The choices had been made.

Today’s song has been sent in by Avinash ji. The film is ‘Samaapti’ from 1949. The film is produced at the Calcutta center, under the banner of Uma Productions, and is directed by Amar Mullick. The star cast of the film is briefly listed in the Geet Kosh as Talat Mehmood, Bharti Devi, Heeralal and Sunder. Given that Talat Mehmood is starring in this film, this song most likely is picturized on himself.

The film has 8 songs listed. Music direction is by Timir Baran. The lyricist name is listed for six of the songs – Pandit Bhushan. Two of these songs, including this one, are solo renderings by Talat Sb, two are solo songs by Suprabha Sarkar, and two are duets of Talat and Suprabha Sarkar. Information about the lyricists and singers of the remaining two songs is not available.

A light hearted song of happiness, that tells about the heart singing like a bird – rendered so effortlessly by Talat Sb. Listen and enjoy.

 


Song – Mann Ki Maina Bol Rahi Hai (Samaapti) (1949) Singer – Talat Mehmood, Lyrics – Pandit Bhushan, MD – Timir Baran

Missing Films of 1960s – 58
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1966 and 1967 appears to be very fertile years, as far as discovering obscure films and songs is concerned. I start searching for the films from these years, and I continue finding films and songs that seem to have been lost in time. A good number of them have already appeared online in one form or another. But there is still a good set that seem to be as yet unavailable online.

Today’s film – ‘Sheba And Hercules’ from 1967, is one of them. After some earlier comments from some readers on the blog and also some followers on YouTube, which corrected my statement about the song being posted for the first time, I try to be more cautious, and apply more effort to search the song before posting. So for this song today, I searched using many different options, but I am not able to trace any song of this film online. But I do not claim that the song is making a debut online, because I have been held in error of such statements before. So I will say that as far as my searches could show, I did not find this film and this song online as yet.

The name of the film itself indicates an obscure and a lost film. As dear Arun ji has also noted in one of his articles earlier, we can depend on the producers of Hindi films to create links across histories and across geographies; even to the extent of combining factual history and fictional characters. This endeavor to connect and to integrate disparate persona, events and aeons, is really ‘commendable’ – these producers and these films are working towards not just national integration, but also international integration. These producers deserve a big applause for their effort. 🙂

Case in point is this film. I am going by the title – since I have no clue as to the content and the storyline of the film. Hercules is a Roman God whose stories are part of the Roman Mythology. Incidentally, in Greek mythology also, a similar Hero/God appears, with a slightly altered name – Heracles. There are many similarities in the stories of these two, across these two cultures.

Queen Sheba is very much a historical persona, whose details are found in Biblical history, and from there connects are found in Jewish and Islamic history also. There is archaeological evidence that also supports this historical records. Sheba was the Queen of the kingdom of Saba – area in the southern Arabic peninsula that is current day Yemen. Her historical record is contemporaneous with King Solomon, who was the king of Israel in circa 970-931 BC. There is a detailed record of Queen Sheba’s visit to Israel, accompanied by a grand retinue, and of bringing many gifts of spices, dry fruits and other items, loaded on camels. The Jewish history records that the spices brought by Queen Sheba were of the type never seen and used before in Israel. There is a record of their conversations, in which Sheba asks many questions from Solomon, who is considered to be the wisest man who ever lived on this earth. After being satisfied with the answers she receives, she returns to her lands. Historians have recorded this visit as one of the earliest examples of a trade and cultural exchange delegation going from one nation to another.

But I digress. The point I am trying to arrive at is the these two mythological / historical personae – Hercules and Sheba – could never have possibly been contemporaneous in person. However, still, the producers of Hindi films have found a happy meeting ground for these two, in the film titled ‘Sheba And Hercules’. I would request other readers and friends to please add some information about the storyline of this film.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of Meena Films, Bombay and is directed by BS Chaudhry. The star cast includes Randhawa, Vijaya Chaudhary, Indira, Heeralal, Kamal Mehra, Tuntun, Rajan Kapoor, Trilok Singh, and Saudagar Singh amongst others. Geet Kosh tells us that there are six songs in this film. All songs have been written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and the music is by a gentleman named Chandan. Now this is a name that I have not encountered before. As I tried to look through the Geet Kosh, I am not able to locate any other reference to this name as a music director. Quite likely, this person, as many others who have given music in one or two films, would probably have been an assistant music director, and then got a chance to try his hand as an independent artist. But after one outing, did not get any more work in the industry.

The singing voice in this song is of Krishna Kalle. This is a song of ‘expression of love’, in which the lady is expressing her magnanimity that she is a benefactor, and that as a favor unto him, she has fallen in love with the gentleman to whom this song is being addressed. Now that is quite a thought. 🙂

So with this song, the film ‘Sheba And Hercules’ makes a debut on our blog. And so does the music director Chandan. I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film, and the music director.

Song – Jaao Ji Tum Pe Hum Merbaan Ho Gaye  (Sheba And Hercules) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Chandan

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

/‘ऊ’/

‘ए’ – एक दिल हैं एक जान हैं

तुम मुझे यूं भुला ना पाओगे
जब कभी भी सुनोगे गीत मेरे
संग संग तुम भी गुनगुनाओगे॰ ॰ ॰

क्या सच ब्यान कर गए आप, रफी साब॰ ॰ ॰

Your voice, and your songs are so imprinted on the memory, that the mind sings along the verses, every time it hears any of your songs. These memories are now lifelong; they will not be deserted till the last breath.

Moving forward with the series of duets – I am skipping ‘ऊ’ because no duet song starting with this vowel is available. So I come to ‘ए’, as the starting letter for today’s song.

This song is from the 1976 film ‘Shaque’, a taut psychological thriller starring Shabana Azmi, Vinod Khanna, Utpal Dutt, Bindu, Durga Khote, Farida Jalal, Master Atul, Arvind Deshpande, Suhas Bhalekar, Satya Kumar Patil, VP Kaale, and AK Banerjee. The film is produced and directed by the husbsand-wife team of Aruna and Vikas, under their own banner – Avikam, Bombay. The five songs in this film are penned by Gulzar (four) and Hafiz (one), and the music direction is by Vasant Desai. This was the last film that Vasant Desai composed the music for, before his unfortunate demise in an unexpected and zany lift accident.

The film deals with a slinking doubt that creeps into the lives of a happily settled couple. Doubts, that go way back into the past, when the couple were less affluent, and a criminal event had happened at the workplace of the husband. The circumstances of the event eventually left the case open, as the guilt of any specific individual could not be established. Years later, that lack of closure becomes the source of doubt and distrust between the couple. The film is very down to earth and very sensibly handled by the director’s team.

This song is one of that rare category of songs that seems to be have been created and recorded as a complete song, but then are used partially in the film, plus they re not released in any other format. So the part of the song that is included on the film’s sound track is the only part that is available. Folks will recall the unlisted song of film ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) – “Peechhe Peechhe Duniya Aage Aage Hum“, that got posted in July last year as a partial song which is available only on the film’s soundtrack. That is a similar example. Then in the 1987 film ‘Susman’, there are one or maybe two bhajans by Kabir, that play in the background, in many parts, throughout the film. They too are not available, other than from the film’s soundtrack. Another example that comes to mind is the complete ghazal “Dil Ka Bharosa To Nahin” from the 1961 film ‘Shama’ – that too is not available anywhere else other than the sound track only. I am sure there are many more such songs and partial songs sitting only in the film’s soundtrack waiting to be discovered.

The online link that is provided actually plays the song more than once. The actual length of the available snippet is just a tad over one minute. The uploader has created a longer piece by splicing and pasting together the available snippet multiple times.

Even this one minute snippet is a wonderful example of how Vasant Desai has taken the free metre verses penned by Gulzar and weaved them into a delectable song. Enjoy this minute long sojourn of beautiful sound.

Song – Ek Dil Hai Ek Jaan Hai Ek Jaan e Jaan (Shaque) (1976) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Vasant Desai

Missing Films of 1960s – 56
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

सुन के देखो तो पता चलता है । Outside of the big name films and their music, so much else was happening in the world of Hindi film music. And so much that became obscure and almost lost. And quite a bit of it is actually lost, at least for now. Listening to this melody, created by Prem Warburtani and Bulo C Rani, and rendered by Asha, one cannot but be convinced that there was a lot more going on in the Hindi film world, outside of the big name films and music. Yes, it is time to stop and smell not just the roses, but the other oh so beautiful flowers that are lost in the brush.

So yes, there is a film by the name ‘Jaadu’ in 1960s. At the mention of this name, the mind always goes back to “Laara Loo, Laara Loo” composed by Naushad Sb for the 1950 film of this name. But today, we are starting to explore this another film by the same name, released in 1966.

The film is produced under the banner of Fine Art Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by B Gupta. The cast of actors, as listed in the Geet Kosh is quite impressive, giving an impression of being a stunt / costume drama film – Ranjan, Chitra, Helen, Sundar, Randhir, Rajan Haksar, Shivraj, Habeeb, Pal Sharma, Jeevankala, BM Vyas, and Lakshmichaya etc.

The film has six songs which have been penned by four song writers – Naresh Pal, Prem Warburtani, Shadab, and Tabish Kanpuri. Today’s song is written by Prem Warburtani. The music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

So with this song, the 1966 ‘Jaadu’ makes its debut on our blog. An absolutely terrific song, that I had to post today. Just as the music starts, and the the voice of Asha ji comes on almost immediately with a short alaap, the heart suddenly knows that a wonderful song is following.

Listen, enjoy, and then let me know.

Song – Dhadhakte Huye Do Dilon Ki Kahaani  (Jaadu) (1966) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Prem Warburtani, MD – Bulo C Rani

 

Lyrics

aaa aaa aaa oo ho
ooo ooo ooo aa ha
la la la la laaa..aa..aaa

dhadakte huye do dilon ki kahaani
suni hai bahaaron
sitaaron ne mil ke
jawaani ke duniya ko mehka rahe hain
mohabbat ke gulshan mein do phool khil ke
aaa aaaa aaaaa aaaaaa aaaa
dhadakte huye do dilon ki kahaani
suni hai bahaaron
sitaaron ne mil ke

gagan ke sitaaron ne
zameen ki bahaaron ne
tumhin ko pukaara
tunhim ko sadaa di
aaa aaa aaa oo oo
gagan ke sitaaron ne
zameen ki bahaaron ne
tumhin ko pukaara
tunhim ko sadaa di
jhoom uthi
dil ki khushi
aaj tumse mil ke
jawaani ki duniya ko mehka rahe hain
mohabbat ke gulshan mein do phool khil ke
aaa aaaa aaaaa aaaaaa aaaa
dhadakte huye do dilon ki kahaani
suni hai bahaaron
sitaaron ne mil ke

tumhen aaj paa kar
tumhari kasam hai
meri zindagi mein bahaar aa gayi hai
ooo ooo ooo aaa aa aa
tumhen aaj paa kar
tumhari kasam hai
meri zindagi mein bahaar aa gayi hai
dil ki kali
aur khili
aaj tumse mil ke
jawaani ki duniya ko mehka rahe hain
mohabbat ke gulshan mein do phool khil ke
aaa aaaa aaaaa aaaaaa aaaa
dhadakte huye do dilon ki kahaani
suni hai bahaaron
sitaaron ne mil ke

Piya Tune Kya Kiya Re, Tere Bin Laage Na Jiya” – this post in 2008 by Atul ji inspired me to sit through an otherwise serious (read boring) movie. In the post Atul ji had written 3 postscripts each after different stages of movie watching and getting more gyaan about the movie. There is nothing more to add about the movie if one reads that particular post.

We just have one more song left of this movie – the song which Deb Mukherjee sings in the voice of Kishore Kumar and Farida Jalal in Lata’s voice. The song comes close to the climax as Deb Mukherjee bids farewell to the doctor, nurses, ward boys (through the movie I didn’t see a single nurse or ward boy; they appear for this song), compounder and the other patients of the hospital. The song is supposed to inspire the patients that they will also recover from their illnesses. The patients have been depressed after Ashok Kumar dies in the hospital – not the doctor’s fault mind you, he didn’t obey the doctor.

The song also expresses Waheeda’s and Sunil Dutt’s feelings towards each other as they can’t sing and dance themselves. She is a widow and the mother of a child, who is being treated by the doctor (Sunil Dutt). Here I will also add that they were in love before Waheeda’s chacha (Gajanan Jagirdar) and chachi (Shyama) objected to their marriage as they belong to different castes. Waheeda gets married to some railway engineer; whose face is never shown and who dies in a freak railway accident.

The film is directed by Tapan Sinha for John Pictures, Bombay. The film has seven songs, all penned by Anand Bakshi. The music is given by SD Burman. The earlier posted songs of this film are,

 

Zindagi Ae Zindagi Tere Hain Do Roop 45 29-Aug-08
Piya Toone Kya Kiyaa 47 30-Aug-08
Mera Sab Kuchh Mere Geet Re 6131 25-Jun-12
Toone Hamen Kya Diyaa Ree Zindagi 12301 4-Aug-16
Teri Meri Meri Teri Zaat Kyaa Hai 13311 6-Jun-17
Kaun Sachcha Hai Kaun Jhoothha Hai 13992 30-Jan-2018

 

This is the ideal song to announce the Yippeee status of this film. ‘Zindagi Zindagi’ now joins the tribe of movies on our blog that has all its songs represented here.

Song – Khush Raho Saathiyo Tumhen Chhod Kar Hum Chale (Zindagi Zindagi) (1972) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – SD Burman
Kishore Kumar + Lata Mangeshkar

Missing Films of 1960s – 54
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Mohabbat Aur Jung’ seems to be a rare and obscure film from 1967. The video of this song is available online, but not much information about the film is available. Existence of the video indicates that the film is in public domain. However, neither the film, nor any other song from this film is as yet uploaded.

The information in the Geet Kosh is also not complete. It identifies this as a stunt film, from the banner of Uppal Productions, Bombay. The list of actors, and the director’s name, both are not available. The uploader has indicated a list of names, viz., Radha Saluja, Ram Mohan, Helen, Shankar, purportedly to be a short list of actor names in this film. Film’s director is S Azim. The list of actors is Randhawa, Helen, Indira, Sunder, Ram Mohan, Sherry, Sujata Bakshi.
[Ed Note: The names of actors, and that of the director are provided by dear Sadanand ji, based on the information on the film poster. Thanks Sadanand ji.]

In terms of songs also, only two songs are listed in the Geet Kosh, with an indication that there are more. The lyricist is identified as Taj Bhopali and the music direction is by Iqbal Qureshi.

This song is sung by Krishna Kalle. I am not certain of the identity of the on screen performer. Is she a young Radha Saluja, a few years younger than what we see her as in ‘Doraaha’, her better known film from 1971. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help to confirm or correct.
[Ed Note: As per information provided by our dear Prakash ji, the on screen performer is Sujata Bakshi. Thanks Prakash ji.]

The song is a ‘calling the beloved’ type of song, as the protagonist is frolicking in the woods and in the waters of a river, singing the words that beckon the beloved.

With this song, the film ‘Mohabbat Aur Jung’ makes a debut on our blog today.

Song – Samaa Khoobsurat Hai, Tumhaari Zaroorat Hai  (Mohabbat Aur Jung) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Taj Bhopali, MD – Iqbal Qureshi

Today, is 28th January – a living legend of Hindi film music turns 81. Yes, its Suman Kalyanpur’s birthday.

Greetings and best wishes to her, for many more such celebrations to come. We wish her good health, happiness and peace.

A voice that has been regaling the listeners, especially the kind that have been hooked on to Hindi film music, listening to the radio services from AIR and Redio Ceylon.

The song I bring to you today, is this very endearing voice, singing a wonderful melody from the 1964 film ‘Krishnavtaar’ . The film is produced under the banner of Kashi Film Corporation, Bombay, and is directed by S Dosaani. The list of actors includes Shyam, Lakshmi Chhaaya, Sujata, Bhagwan, Sabina, Sadhna Khote, Prem Sagar, Jagdish Kanwal, Ajay and Radheyshyam etc. The nine songs of this film are shared between two song writers – four written by Anjaan and five written by Yogesh. This song is by Anjaan. The wonderful musical compositions of this film are prepared by Suresh Kumar.

The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. She has lent her voice to as many as 6 songs out of nine in this film, four of which are solo songs. This is the second solo by her to be showcased here.

A wonderful rendition, that tells about a celebration of the heart. A celebration that is today.

Many happy returns of the day.

Missing Films of 1960s – 39
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

What luck, I must have missed this song in my online searches earlier when I was looking for songs of missing films from 1964. When I located this song couple of days back, I realize it has been sitting here for almost five years. What luck.

And what a wonderful melodious song this one is. और कैसे कैसे कहूँ – the more obscure the film, the higher probability that we will find some really great songs. I was completely bowled over by this song when I was able to locate it and then listened to it. The song has been uploaded by our dear friend Parag Sankla.

This is a stunt film that was produced in 1964 under the banner of Padma Productions, Bombay. Name of the director is given simply as Jal. The star cast is familiar for such films of that era – Azaad, Chitra, Heeralal, Krishna Kumari, Kamal Kapoor, Shaam Kumar, Heera Sawant, Sheikh, Maruti, Fazlu, and then a lot more names that are not very familiar – Gani, Nihal, Renu, Meena, Master Dillu, Nayar, K Murti, Buniyad Ali Sultan, Gopal, and Raghunath.

Geet Kosh lists 7 songs for this film. As per the listings, only 4 songs appear to have been released on gramophone records, and three may be lost, unless the film itself is traced. Names of two music directors are listed – Manoharlal and S Kishan. Manoharlal is possibly Manoharlal Khanna, whom we know more as a lyricist, although his name also appears as a music director in a few films. The specific MD name against individual songs is not given so I propose we use the MD name as ‘Mahoharlal, S Kishan’.

Coming to lyricists, once again two names are listed – Akhtar Romani and Farad. And once again, the specific name against individual songs is not listed, so it is not possible to identify the writer of this song.

Singing voices are of Geeta Dutt and Mahendra Kapoor. Both have sung their lines with zest and fun. A wonderful song for light mood and fun.

So this film makes a debut on our blog today. At least four songs of this film are available, so we should be seeing more of them here.

Song – O Mr Johnny Mizaaz Kaisa Hai  (Tarzan Aur Captain Kishire) (1964) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Manoharlal, S Kishan

ओ मिस्टर जौनी
मिज़ाज़ कैसा है
ओ डियर टौनी
तुम आज कैसा है
चोरी चोरी निगाहें
बता दो किसे चाहें
वो दिलबर प्यारा कौन है

ओ डियर मैडम
गुलाब की कली
ओ डियर मैडम
शबाब की डली
निगाहें तीखी तीखी
अदाएं मीठी मीठी
तुम से प्यारा कौन है
ओ डियर मैडम॰॰॰

ये मोटा
ये काला
ये नीरो है
ये गोरा
ये चिट्टा
ये हीरो है
ये मोटा
ये काला
ये नीरो है
ये गोरा
ये चिट्टा
ये हीरो है
पहने ये सूट
और मारे सलूट
वैसे तो बोले तू ज़ीरो है
ओ डियर मैडम
गुलाब की कली
ओ डियर मैडम
शबाब की डली
निगाहें तीखी तीखी
अदाएं मीठी मीठी
अरे तुम से प्यारा कौन है
ओ डियर मैडम॰॰॰

यही तो
जी मैडम
नैनीताल है
यही तो
जी लंडन
का फुटबॉल है
यही तो
जी मैडम
नैनीताल है
यही तो
जी लंडन
का फुटबॉल है
ये रॉकेटम्
मारे ब्यूटी का बम
देखे तो कोई क्या चाल है
ओ मिस्टर जौनी
मिज़ाज़ कैसा है
ओ डियर टौनी
तुम आज कैसा है
चोरी चोरी निगाहें
बता दो किसे चाहें
वो दिलबर प्यारा कौन है
ओ मिस्टर जौनी॰॰॰

ओ लेडी
ओ ब्यूटी
तू चल थम के
ओ बेबी
ओ स्वीटी
ज़रा दम ले
ओ लेडी
ओ ब्यूटी
तू चल थम के
ओ बेबी
ओ स्वीटी
ज़रा दम ले
जानूँ मैं जान
क्या है तेरा ख्याल
बातें ना कर ऐसी हमसे
अरे ओ डियर मैडम
गुलाब की कली
ओ डियर मैडम
शबाब की डली
निगाहें तीखी तीखी
अदाएं मीठी मीठी
अरे तुम से प्यारा कौन है
ओ डियर मैडम॰॰॰

ओ मिस्टर जौनी
मिज़ाज़ कैसा है
ओ डियर टौनी
तुम आज कैसा है
चोरी चोरी निगाहें
बता दो किसे चाहें
वो दिलबर प्यारा कौन है
ओ मिस्टर जौनी॰॰॰
