Today’s song is from the movie ‘Jurm-1990’.

By the standards of this blog ‘Jurm-1990’ is a very recent movie. This movie made made its debut on the blog during its early days, viz on 12.09.2008 with its ‘heart-touching’ song ‘jab koi baat bigad jaaye, jab koi mushqil pad jaaye’. This song is said to be inspired by the song “500 miles” (Peter Paul & Mary version/ brothers four version).

Today we are going to listen to the second song from this movie. This song ‘marne ke dar se mere dil’ is said to be inspired by Madonna’s “La Isla Bonita”.

‘Jurm-1990’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for ‘Vishesh Films’.It was produced by Mukesh Bhatt. It had Vinod Khanna, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Sangeeta Bijlani, Shafi Inamdar and Anang Desai and supported by Sharat Saxena, Akash Khurana, Om Shivpuri, Jack Gaud, Mahesh Anand, Girija Shankar and others.

Story, Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Salim Khan. Editing of this movie was done by Dimpy Bahl.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.07.1990 with restricted viewing certificate i.e. ‘A’ certificate.

This movie had six songs (as per wiki) including one three-part song. Lyrics for this movie were written by Indeewar and Payam Sayeedi, and music was composed by Rajesh Roshan. Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Kumar Sanu, Sadhna Sargam, Manhar Udhas, Mohd Aziz had given their voices to the songs of this movie.

Today’s song, the second song of this movie is appearing after a gap of ‘4572’ days on the blog. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mohd Aziz. Lyrics are by Indeewar and music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Today’s song, a motivational song, is a nice hummable song to listen to.
Sangeeta Bijlani and Vinod Khanna are seen performing on the song in the voices of Asha Bhonsle and Mohd Aziz respectively. Mahesh Anand and many other artists can also be seen present in the song which also happens to be a ‘party-song’.

I have not watched this movie, so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Out of 35 movies of 1958 where Lata Mangeshkar lent her voice, all her songs in 21 movies have been covered. So the balance 30 Lata Mangeshkar songs belong to 14 movies of 1958.

Alphabetically the first such movie is “Baalyogi Upmanyu”(1958). This devotional (Bhakti pradhan) movie was produced by Shankarbhai Bhatt and directed by Harsukh Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay.

Here is a Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Baalyogi Upmanyu”(1958). Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

What a wonderful song to listen to. It is a song which is bound to cheer the listners up with its positive message.

Song-Duniya ke anyaayion anyaay ki hoti khair nahin (Baalyogi Upmanyu)(1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

duniya ke anyaayiyon
duniya ke anyaayion
anyaay ki hoti khair nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

sati ke sat mein tej chhupa hai aag ka
chheen sake na sukh koi mere bhaag ke
sati ke sat mein tej chhupa hai aag ka
chheen sake na sukh koi mere bhaag ke
aandhi ho barsaat ho ya toofaan ho
bujh na sakega deepak mere suhaag ka
sach ki hogi ee ee
sach ki hogi jeet sada
jismein hai zara bhi pher nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

jisko seencha bhakti ki jal-dhaar se
jisko paala aatma ke pyaar se
jisko seencha bhakti ki jal-dhaar se
jisko paala aatma ke pyaar se
phailti rahti dharam ki bel wo
kat nahin sakti kabhi talwaar se
deen dayaalu u u
deen dayaalu
apne in bhakton ki taale ter nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion
anyaay ki hoti khair nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal
wahaan der magar andher nahin
duniya ke anyaayion

Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Song Posted on
Hip hip hurray … aao piyo peene ka zamaana aaya
Hai shukr ki tu hai ladka … kya hota meri tauba agar tu
Das gayi das gayi … naagan si zulfen teri 02.08.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke … gaal gulaabi hai 07.07.2013
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

“Naag Mohini”(1963) was directed by Shantilal Soni for Dimple Films Bombay. This “pauraaanik” movie had Vijaya Chadhary, Mahipal, Sundar, Rajan Haksar, Bablu, Uma Dutt, Indira Bansal, Rajrani, Sood, Khursheed etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Naag Mohini”(1963) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik.

The song is picturised as an “inspirational” song, which to me sounds more like a “putting up a brave face” genre of song on a kid who could be Bablu going by the star cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the kid.


Song-Hum hain baalak kal ke maalik (Naag Mohini)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
samjho mat naadaan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik

jungle ho ujaad ho
saamne pahaad ho
sheron ki dahaad ho
koi na sake re humen thhaamne
din ho ya raat ho
aandhi barsaat ho
koi bhi na saath ho
badhte hi jaayen hum saamne
hum hain bachche
dhun ke sachche
sheron ki santaa aan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hai baalak
kal ke maalik

dikhne mein kamzor hum
shakti mein ghanghor hum
aandhiyon ka zor hum
pade na kisi ko hum se vaasta
chaahe jalti aag ho
bhaazlu cheeta baagh ho
fan uthaaye naag ho
koi na roke humaara raasta
hum hain ladke
hum jo bhadken
ban jaaye toofaa aan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
samjho na naadaan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 102 # In Remembrance – Jaikishan #
————————————————————————————

Today 12th Sep 2020 is forty-ninth remembrance day of the genius music director Jaikishan of Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

Jaikishan was born on 04th November 1929 at Vansda (in Navsari district, Gujarat) and passed away on 12th September 1971 at Bombay (now Mumbai, Maharashtra). He was only 41 when he passed away and his death shook the entire film industry then.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the 1971 movie – ‘Yaar Mera’. One song from this movie – “Dil Ki Kitaab Kori Hai, Kori Hi Rehne Do” – has already been presented on the blog by Sudhir ji on 13th Sep’2013 with a heartfelt tribute to Jaikishan remembering him on his 42nd remembrance anniversary. Today we will listen another song from the same movie.

‘Yaar Mera’ was released after Jaikishan’s death and the movie was dedicated to his memory. The movie begins with this ‘couplet’. I am unable to identify the voice uttering these words, which plays in the background of the dedication title.

jo shaam savere miltaa thha
phoolon ki tarah se khiltaa thha,
aye maut, tujhe maut aa jaaye
kyon yaar ko mere chheen liyaa

Shankar Jaikishan ruled the music charts in 1971 with their “Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhaana” ranking top of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list. In 1971 from the total 115 released movies, Shankar Jaikishan had composed music for as many as seventeen movies plus the un-released movie ‘Bombay Talkie’ making it to total eighteen movies. Here is the list of movies where Shankar-Jaikishan composed the music and that were released (or passed by Censor Board) in 1971,

 

S No Movie Passed by Censor Board on Lyricist/s
01 Albelaa 14.10.1971 Hasrat Jaipuri
02 Andaaz 23.04.1971 Hasrat Jaipuri

17 Yaar Mera 29.11.1971 Hasrat Jaipuri, Neeraj, SH Bihari
18 Bombay Talkie (UR) 19.02.1971 Hasrat Jaipuri, Usha Iyyer

Other than songs of ‘Andaaz’ (two songs), the songs of ‘Main Sundar Hoon’ (also two songs) made it to the list of annual Binaca Geetmala of 1971 from the above list of movies. And that can explain how tough the competition was that year.

The song “Dil Ki Kitaab Kori Hai. . .“was the only popular song from the today’s movie and it was frequently heard on radio during that time. As mentioned above this song has already been posted on the blog.

The film was directed by Atmaram for RS Productions, Bombay. Raja Ram and Satish Wagle were the producers of this movie and Jayendra Pandya was the Associate Producer of this movie.

Today’s song is from the film Taramati-45. This is an obscure film. None of its songs are available on YouTube or with Saregama. I was lucky to get hold of this rare song from one of my friends. Taramati-45 was produced by Ramniklal Shah, under his banner Ramnik Films. Yes, he is the same Ramniklal Shah, who married actress Indurani. Ramnik productions were known to make action/stunt films or C grade adventure films. Sometimes they would go for Mythological films. Actually, this was their first Mythological film.

Right from the silent era, the studio system was quite strong. Every notable studio had its own group of actors, directors and composers, along with technical staff. Most were on monthly pay rolls. They were tied up to the studio by a written contract. After the entry of Talkie films, studios became more alert in keeping or holding their people with them. This actually became a limitation for the actors and directors, who wanted to fly high and earn more. The second world war added to the woes of studios. Increasing costs, shortages of raw film and demanding artistes virtually broke the studios.

In or around the early 40’s, the studio system started giving away. When the studios broke up, they gave way to new establishments. Sagar gave way to National and Mehboob studios, Bombay Talkies fragmented into Filmistan, N R Acharya films and later filmalaya, New Theatre directors started their own companies like Bimal Roy, Barua, Nitin Bose etc., Prabhat made way for Rajkamal, Nene production, Alhad Chitra of Dharmadhikari etc.

Film Das baje -42 was a film made at the time when Prabhat’s disintegration had started. Shantaram had already walked out to start Rajkamal. After the film Das Baje-42, during 1943, another batch of Raja Nene, Shantaram Atavale, Datta Dharmadhikari and Keshavrao Bhole left Prabhat, while film Ramshastri was in the making. K.Bhole however, completed the music composition of film Ramshastri before leaving Prabhat and the balance film was directed by Gajanan Jahagirdar.

All this team joined Mohan studios. Some of the actors too joined them to make the film Taramati-45. The young director Raja nene, with a lot of experience in acting and of being the assistant director in Prabhat with the stalwarts like Shantaram, Damle and Fattelal was appointed Director of this Mythological film. He also had the experience of independently directing a successful film Dus Baje-42. Pt.Mukhram Sharma wrote the dialogues and songs. The story was developed by G P Pawar and Shantaram Athavale The music was looked after by Keshavrao Bhole and Ramchandra Pal. The cast included, Shobhana Samarth, Vasant Thengdi, Baby Shakuntala, Ananth Marathe and others. The film was released on 8-9-1945 at the Roxy Cinema in Bombay.

Raja Nene was born in a small village in Konkan, on 18-12-1912. His real name was Gajanan Hari Nene. His early education was done in his hometown and he graduated from a college in Ratnagiri. He was the nephew of Vishnupant Damle, a partner in Prabhat Films. After his graduation, Damle employed him in Prabhat as an assistant Director.

Raja assisted Shantaram in the film Vasantsena-35 and Amar Jyoti-36. During the making of the film Sant Tukaram, he was shifted to Damle-Fattelal duo as their assistant Director and he became a key figure in making that film. Subsequently, he continued with Damle – Fattelal duo in their other ventures like Gopal Krishna-38 and Sant Dnyaneshwar-40. For film Sant Sakhu-41, his name was included as one of the directors, along with Damle-Fattelal. In between, he also acted in the film Duniya na maane-37.

In 1942, he directed his first independent film ” Dus Baje” a Marathi-Hindi bilingual. Meanwhile, V Shantaram, a mentor for all junior aspirants and his proteges, left Prabhat to start his own studio-Rajkamal Kalamandir. Same time, a new film of Prabhat-“Ramshastri” was given to Nene for direction. However, a group of Shantaram loyalists – Athavale, Dharmadhikari, Mukhram Sharma, Raja nene and Keshavrao Bhole – decided to leave Prabhat. The incomplete film Ramshastri-44 was completed by Gajanan Jagirdar, in addition to doing the lead role in the film. Keshavrao Bhole also completed his work before leaving Prabhat.

The entire group joined Mohan studios. After the film Taramati-45, Nene started his own company – Raja Nene Productions and made the film ” Shadi se Pehle”-1947. Nene not only acted in the film, but also directed it along with Debutant director Datta Dharmadhikari. After Rajkamal, Nene Productions was the next big production house to emerge from Prabhat Films. It was followed by Alhad Chitra of Datta Dharmadhikari.

After directing film Lalat-47 ( debut film of actress Ushakiran), Nene turned to Marathi films, acting and directing hit films like, Patthe Baburao and Ketakichya Banaat, Sant Ramdas etc. He returned to Hindi films and directed Shri Vishnu Bhagwan-51, Bhai ka pyar-51, Rajrani Damayanti-52, Lanka Dahan-52, Indrasen-52, Radha krishna-54, Pehli Tarikh-54, Hanuman Janma-57 and Gauri Shankar-58.

In between and after 1958, Nene directed only Marathi films, but acted in few Hindi films. His film Pehli Tarikh-54 was a hit film and the famous Kishore song, ” Khush hai zamana aaj pehli tarikh hai” was filmed on him only. Film Pehli Tarikh was remade in Kannada and Tamil by P. Neelkantham as Modaltedi-55. Raja Nene expired on 21-2-1975 at Bombay. He directed 16 Hindi films and acted in 14 Hindi films from 1937 to 1975. ( Ack: based on information from ” Marathi Cinema in Retrospect” by Sanjit Narwekar and Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, Film India-Nov.45 with thanks.)

There is one unusual name in the cast of the film – Vasant Thengdi. Vasant Thengadi was born on 11-1-1910 at Nagpur. He was the son of Congress leader Dhaniram Thengadi. Vasant had his education in Poona. He could not join the Army, because of his father’s political connections. He had to leave his Engineering college after his father’s death. Being very handsome,tall and with good physique, he started working in Marathi dramas and films. He started his Hindi work with film Dhuwandhar-35. ( This was also the Debut film for Leela Chitnis and Meera Alexander). He started doing Villain roles and became popular and famous. Besides Marathi films, his Hindi films were Taramati-45, Phir bhi apna hai-46, Mera Ladka-38, Din Raat-45, Ten o clock-42 etc. Later he also worked as assistant director to Raja Nene.

Today’s film, as the name suggests, is a well known story of Harishchandra-Taramati. This is a story which appears in Aitareya Bramhanya, Mahabharat, Markendeya puran and Devi Bhagwat. This story has been quite popular with our filmmakers from the earliest era. As we all know, the first Silent feature film was Raja Harishchandra-1913, made by Dadasaheb Phalke. In the silent era there were 3 films called Raja Harischandra-in 1913, 1917 and 1927. There were two films called Harishchandra in 1928 and 1929. There were two Talkie films, Raja Harishchandra in 1952 and 1979, There was also a Satyavadi Harishchandra in 1931 itself. The story was so well known, that no wonder, film Taramati-45 did not do well at all at the box office.

Today’s song is sung by Baby Shakuntala. When I requested our Sadanand Kamath ji to upload this song for me, after listening to the song, this is what he said, ” This is one of the rarest songs which, to my mind, even SAREGAMA does not have mp3 clips of any song from the film.

Also, this is one of those marching songs which has been composed with a subdued orchestra giving more emphasis on the lyrics to inspire the listeners. The voice of Baby Shakuntala is neither ‘baby’ nor ‘adult’ but has the correct resonance for the marching song.” Very true.

Blog Day :

Today is 31 july 2020. It is the 40th anniversary of the passing away of Mohammad Rafi ( 24 december 1924-31 july 1980) as all HFM lovers are only too aware. 31 july 1980 is a day which is still fresh in the minds of music lovers who were around at that time.

31 july 1880, a date exactly 100 years prior to 31 july 1980 was also an important day. It was on this day that Dhanpat Rai was born, who would later be known as Munshi Premchand (31 july 1880-8 october 1936), one of the most influential Urdu-Hindi author in modern Indian literature.

I have covered Munshi Premchand a few times in this blog. When one reads his creations, one is astonished at his vision, and his progressiveness. He was far ahead of the times in which he lived. He championed the cause of women empowerment, human rights and even animal rights at a time when these causes had not even become fashionable.

Munshi Premchand is considered an Urdu-Hindi literateur, but he was much more than just that. He was conversant in English as well. He was very well read in foreign literature. Translating foreign classics into Urdu and Hindi was one of his passions that has not received much attention from those who have studied him.

Munshi Premchand not only championed noble causes, he also practiced what he preached. After he separated from his first wife (with whom he was married as a child, in accordance with the then prevailing social practice), he married a widow, which was quite a revolutionary act those days.

Premchand began his career as a writer in Gorakhpur. Gorakhpur turned out to be the place where he was at his most creative. Gorakhpur was also the place where he spent the happiest days of his life (1916-1921). He was leading a contented life in Gorakhpur as a government school teacher (Assistant Master at Norman High School, Gorakhpur) when he listened to the speech of Mahatma Gandhi on 8 february 1921, where Gandhi Ji exhorted Indians to give up government jobs as part of non-cooperation movement. Munshi Premchand acted on this call and resigned from his job (he has received a promotion while at Gorakhpur and had become Deputy Inspector of Schools). With the consent of his wife, he resigned from his government job. Rest of his life was largely a struggle to make both ends meet. All that did not affect the quality of his penmanship.

Premchand briefly dabbled in the then new art form of Talkies. But he failed to adjust to the ways of the movies and went back to his first love, viz writing.

Many of his writings later went on to be made into films (Hindi as well as other languages). I have discussed ‘Do Bailon Ki Katha’ (which was made into ‘Heera Moti’ (1958) in the past. I have also discussed ‘Idgaah’. ‘Gaban’ is another of his novel that has been made into a movie.

It was in 1924 that Munshi Premchand wrote ‘Rangbhoomi’. It is the story of a blind beggar called Surdas. This story was made into a Hindi movie in 1946. This movie ‘Rangbhoomi’ (1946) was produced and directed by Mohan Bhavnani for Bhavnani Productions, Bombay. The movie had KN Singh, Nigar Sultana, Jagdish Sethi, Sulochana Chatterjee, Maqbul, Navin Yagnik, Gope etc.

To pay tribute to both Munshi Premhand and Md Rafi, here is a song from ‘Rangbhoomi’ (1946). This song is a multiple part song. Part I is sung by Rafi and chorus, while part II is sung by Rafi, Sahmshad Begam and chorus. Pt Phaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Premnath (music director).

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Blog Day :

There are Hindi films in which almost all the songs have become popular. But those films are often identified with a single song in the sense that the name of the film brings back the memory of the most popular song of that film which has been stuck in the minds of the listeners for long. I give below a sample list of five films which are often identified with one of its popular songs:

Aaraam (1951): ae jaan-e-jigar dil mein samaane aajaa
Yahudi (1958): ye mera deewaanapan hai
Bambai Ka Babu (1960): chal ri sajni ab kya soche
Soorat Aur Seerat (1962): bahut diya dene waale ne tuhjko
Bandini (1963): o jaane waale ho sake to laut ke aana

The significance of these five films with songs mentioned thereagainst is that all these five songs have been sung by Mukesh and that too the only song he has rendered in these films. That is the power of Mukesh’s melonchalic voice laced with sadness. Mukesh had said in one of his interviews that if he has a choice of 10 songs to sing, out of which one is a sad song, he would reject remaining nine songs.

Today, July 22, 2020 is the 97th birth anniversary of Mukesh Chand Mathur (22/07/1923 – 27/08/1976).  Mukesh, like many of his compatriot popular playback singers needs no introduction on the blog. Moreover, there are a number of detailed posts on Mukesh in the blog. So, I will limit the coverage in this article to the stages of his zigzag filmy career which ended with a high note.

Motilal, a distant relative of Mukesh was already impressed by his singing. When Mukesh came to Mumbai, sometime  1940, Motilal placed him under the tutelage of Pandit Jagannath Prasad, a Hindustani classical vocalist, for training in singing. During the training, Mukesh became acquainted with Raj Kapoor who would occasionally come for training as a substitute for his mother who was practicing classical singing with Pandit Jagannath Prasad whenever she was free from her household work. One of those days when Mukesh was practising a particular Raag, Raj Kapoor loved his voice and felt that his own voice paled compared to Mukesh’s voice. At that time, Mukesh said to Raj Kapoor that he could take his voice. At that time, both were in their teens and I do not think that Mukesh had ever thought that one day he would become the voice of Raj Kapoor on the screen.

While his musical training was going on, Mukesh got an opportunity to work with Nalini Jaywant in a film (I guess, it was National Studio’s ‘Radhika’ 1941). However, his father did not permit him to act in the film. When the same production house was planning to make a new film for which they were looking for a young new comer as a hero opposite Nalini Jaywant, they again approached Mukesh. This time, his father permitted him to join the film. ‘Nirdosh’ (1941) became his first film in which he was an actor-singer. The film flopped.

It is well known that KL Saigal was Mukesh’s idol and had adopted his singing style. From his eagerness to become an actor, Mukesh seems to have been also obsessed with becoming a great actor-singer like KL Saigal.  Even after the failure of his first film, Mukesh tried as a side actor in ‘Dukh Sukh’ (1942), ‘Addab Arz’ (1943) and ‘Uss Paar’ (1944) but could not get success as an actor-singer.  He had almost made up his mind to return to Delhi when Motilal came to his rescue and manage to get Mukesh sing for him in ‘Pehli Nazar’ (1945).

How Mukesh got to sing his first song, “Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De” as a playback singer in ‘Pehli Nazar’ (1945) is well documented in the write-up covering the song on the blog itself. So, I will not go into it. But Mukesh was not yet out of wood then. When the film was completed and was being previewed before its release, producer-director Mazhar Khan decided to delete this song as he felt that the sad song did not suit Motilal’s personality who has been known as a flamboyant actor by his fans.

When Mukesh came to know about it, he met Mazhar Khan and requested to retain his song. Mazhar Khan said that this song was boring and it was dragging the smooth movement of the story in the film. After a lot of pleading by Mukesh, Mazhar Khan agreed to retain the song for one week after the release of the film. If the public liked the song, it would be retained in the film. Otherwise, the song would be deleted from the film. Mukesh also got some breather as due to communal riots, the release of the film was delayed. As we know now, this song became the most popular amongst the songs of the film. This song also became a turning point in the career of Mukesh as he turned to playback singing as a career rather than the actor-singer. [Source: Last Interview of Mukesh by BBC Hindi Services].

During 1945 to 1953, Mukesh concentrated on his career as a playback singer and rendered nearly 200 songs. During this time, he had become the main playback singer to actors like Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Premnath, Motilal, Prem Adib etc.

When his career as a playback singer was firmly in saddle, again the bug of becoming an actor-singer seems to have bitten him. In 1951, Mukesh had already turned producer with ‘Malhaar’ (1951). In 1953, he once again tried his luck as actor-singer in ‘Mashooqa’ (1953) opposite Suraiya. The film miserably failed at the box office. Not to be discouraged by the failure, he once again tried his luck by producing ‘Anuraag’ (1956) with himself in the lead role opposite Usha Kiran. This film also failed at the box office.

In his quest for becoming an actor-singer, Mukesh lost out both as an actor and a playback singer. But more than the failure of the films, Mukesh’s career as a playback singer was majorly affected as, due to his non-availability, music directors like Naushad shifted his preference for Mohammed Rafi and Talat Mehmood. During this period, Rafi had emerged as number one playback singer. Other music directors like SD Burman, C Ramchandra, Madan Mohan, Roshan etc had also switched over mainly to Rafi as their lead male playback singer. Even Shankar-Jaikishan had to rely on Manna Dey for Raj Kapoor in films like ‘Shri 420’ (1955) and ‘Chori Chori’ (1956) for some songs.  During 1953-56, Mukesh’s output as a playback singer (other than his own films as actor-singer) was dismally low at less than 20 songs.

In Hindi film industry, it is extremely difficult to regain the lost ground as there is constant competitions to take over the ground from those who have lost it. Mukesh had to face a lot of hardship in terms of his financial position as he had heavily lost money in his film making ventures. Added to his woes was that his mentor, Anil Biswas had almost retired as music director towards the end of 1950s. Motilal, another mentor who would demand Mukesh as his voice (he done that in ‘Jaagte Raho, 1956 when it was originally recorded in Manna Dey’s voice) was no longer doing the role of the lead actor in the films.

It was Raj Kapoor, the trusted friend of Mukesh from the days of making ‘Aag’ (1948), who had a major role in rehabilitating Mukesh as playback singer post 1956 years. Mukesh continued to sing  for Raj Kapoor in most of his films. Later on, he also became the voice for Manoj Kumar in most of his films. The popularity of the songs of films like ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958), ‘Madhumati’ (1958), ‘Anari’ (1959), ‘Chhalia’ (1960), ‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’ (1962), ‘Himalay Ki Godi Mein’ (1965) re-established as one of the foremost playback singers.  Starting with the voice of the superstars of 1940s and 50s like Motilal. Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor, Mukesh sang for the superstars of 1970s like Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan. He continued to maintain his status as one of the leading playback singers of 1970s  till his unfortunate death on August 27, 1976. Even during the emergence of Kishore Kumar as playback singer post-1970, Mukesh clocked a little over 200 songs during 1971-76 (including few songs spilling over post-1976), mainly because no other playback singers could replicate the pathos in his singing.

On the occasion of the 97th birth anniversary of Mukesh, I have selected an inspirational song, “Hai Ye Zameen Hamaari Wo Aaasmaan Hamaara” sung by him for the film ‘Saara Jahaan Hamaara’ (1961). The song is written by Anjum Jaipuri and is set to music by Baabul. I could not locate the video clip of the song on-line, but I have watched a very small video clip of the song which shows that it is a stage song picturised on Premnath.

Blog Day :

4385 Post No. : 15742

Hullo atuldom

Many times I find a celebrity’s birthday and then look for a song featuring him/ her. Then, there are times when I see or hear a song and look for the birth-dates or anniversaries of those related with that song. In both the scenarios the post is nearly ready due to readily available songs. There is a third scenario where when I visit the birth-dates/ anniversary page of our blog and I see a birthday of an artiste, whose work I like, coming up, I rush to look for possible songs and find it difficult to zero in on anyone because there are too may options. So to make selection easy, I make things more complicated by trying to find debut songs of the person, adding a condition that the person should be seen lip-syncing and if he/she is dancing in the song or at-least shaking a leg that would be a BONUS.

So today we are celebrating the 70th birthday of an actor who made un-credited appearances in ‘Aman’ (1967) and ‘Aan Baan’ (1972). Shyam Benegal was the one who first cast him as Vishwam in ‘Nishant’ in 1975 and there began his journey in the parallel cinema of the Indian Film industry. His foray into commercial cinema came about when he played one of the Pandavs in ‘Hum Paanch’ (1980) which was not a mythological movie but a movie with a social message. From then on, he has straddled cinema of various genres and been successful enough to last till today. He has given memorable performances and has been a recipient of the National Award and Filmfare award for the best actor three times. Additionally he has been awarded the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan.

Initially we saw him as a costar to Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil. Then with ‘Katha’ (1982) Deepti Naval became his heroine and his movies could be said to have become commercially viable when we saw him with Rekha in two movies – ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981) and ‘Ijaazat’ (1987). I think he did one more movie with Rekha I can’t recollect. Here I am not talking of Rekha movies where this actor played negative characters meaning played a villain (being the right term). Oh yes, this actor has played villain and hero in traditionally masala films. Just goes to show how versatile he is.

I am sure the readers have guessed that I am talking of Naseeruddin Shah. I loved what Sudhirji wrote in his post for the song “Kisi Na Kisi Se Kabhi Na Kabhi (Medley)” last year on the same occasion. I think we should revisit it.

For today let us see him sing and dance with Mithun Chakravarty and Yogita Bali. So “Oye oye. . . Tirchi Topiwaale” was not the first time he tried to dance.  Here he has played Mithun’s friend and Yogeeta’s brother. The song is from the romantic thriller ‘Khwaab’ (1980) which was directed by Shakti Samanta. It had songs written and composed by Ravindra Jain. Today’s song is sung by Jaspal Singh, Suresh Wadkar and Hemlata. The story of the movie is present in the only song of the movie that has been posted in the monsoon of 2015 – “Tu Hi Wo Haseen Hai“.

Happy Birthday to Naseeruddin Shah – stay healthy and may we have more from you.

Song – Ek Aas Liye Vishwaas Liye  (Khwaab) (1980) Singer – Suresh Wadkar, Jaspal Singh, Hemlata, Lyrics – Ravindra Jain, MD – Ravindra Jain

mil jaata hai wo bina dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera mann manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

sapna ho jin mein koi 
soti nahin hain woh aankhen
saathi adhure sapne 
meri bhi aankhon mein jhaanken
har sukh se juda dukh hai 
dukh ka apna sukh hai
mere saathi
sab kuch na miley yahaan dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera mann manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

ahaa ahaa haa lalala laa 
ohohoho oooo

nit bhor ki ye laali 
deti sandesha zindagi ka
jis ne andhere kaate 
hoga savera bhi usi ka
koi meet sahara de to
jeene ka ishaara de to
mere sathi
wahin manzil tu jahaan dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

Blog Day :

4372 Post No. : 15710

The date today is 7 july 2020. From the HFM point of view, birth anniversaries of Anil Biswas (born 1914) and Saraswati Kumar Deepak (born 1918) falls today. We have already honoured the two artists in two articles earlier today.

Some other important non HFM related things also happened on this day. It was on this day in 1928 that sliced bread was forst sold by Chillicothe Baking Company of Chillicothe, Missouri, USA. Their product, “Kleen Maid Sliced Bread was advertised as “the greatest forward step in the baking industry since bread was wrapped. This gave rise to the popular idiom “greatest thing since sliced bread”. 🙂

It was on this day in 1985 that Boris Becker became the youngest male player in history to win a major tennis singles title. He was 17 years, 7 months and 15 days old when he lifted the Wimbledon singles title. This record was later broken by Michael Chang (does anyone remember him today ?) in 1989 French Open. I had watched this match on TV in the hostel with likeminded sports lovers where Boris Becker defeated South Africa’s Kevin Curren (not to be confused with Zimbabwe cricketer Kevin Curran).

Back home, this date is important for Indian cricket lovers. It was on this day in 1981 that Mahendra Singh Dhoni was born !

I need not remind our fellow Indian cricket lover what Dhoni has done for Indian cricket. In my opinion, India had a few cricketers (five in number) who to my mind enabled Indian cricket to shift to higher gears. These higher gears did not exist before the advent of these cricketers. The first of them was MAK Pataudi, who gave Indian cricketers the first dose of self belief in their abilities. Then the next was Sunil Gavaskar, who with his rock solid batting against the best pace attacks of the world gave Indians the belief that they too could hold their own and occasionally win too. Then came Kapildev. Before him, it was believed that Indians could not bowl fast. He could not only bowl fast, he could be said to have changed the fortunes of Indian cricket and also world cricket, with his exploits in 1983 World Cup. This title win was a fluke, but this fluke win could not have been achieved without the additional gear that Kapildev had brought to Indian cricket. This win brought an enormous change in balance of cricketing powers. Indian, from being an also ran, began to become title contenders in future world cups. In addition, BCCI, the Indian cricket board, began to have an increasing say in running world cricket.

The next influential cricketer was Saurabh Ganguly. Under his captaincy, India cricket team grew a spine and killer instinct which was lacking in Indian cricket prior to him.

And that brings us to our fifth and final Indian cricket influencer extraordinaire, viz M S Dhoni.

MSD Made his debut into the Indian team during Indian team’s Bangladesh tour of 2004. And it was quite a forgettable start. He was run out for zero in his first batting innings. In the second ODI, India were 131/5 in 33. 2 overs. needing a further 99 runs at an asking rate of 5.8 runs. Dhoni joined Kaif in the centre. Those who had watched his exploits at India A level had high hopes on him. Dhoni was only able to score 12 off 11 deliveries and he was the sixth wicket to fall at 155 at 37.2 overs. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals and India had the ignominy of losing to Bangladesh by 15 runs.

Badly stung, India approached the third and final ODI in a murderous mood. Everyone scored runs and India piled on 348. Dhoni got to bat for two deliveries where he scored seven in two deliveries, including a six, the first six of his ODI career.

Though Dhoni did not do much of note in his debut series, he was retained in home series against Pakistan. Coming to bat in the slog overs with India well placed, he once again failed to capitalise and made a disappointing 3 for 7 deliveries.

After four disappointing matches, Dhoni’s fate was hanging by a thin thread. The second ODI at Vishakhapatnam was a make or break match for Dhoni. Luckily for Dhoni and for world cricket, Ganguly, the captain, decided to give Dhoni another chance. Not just that, Dhoni was sent at one down ! And the rest, as they say, is history. Dhoni announced his arrival at world cricket stage with 148 runs. This knock cemented his place in ODI and opened the doors to test selection as well.

By 2007, Dhoni was still a unior player in the team. shock exit of Indian team from 2007 World cup saw many heads roll in Indian cricket. A new form of cricket ,namely T20 cricket was thrust on the rest of thecricketing world by England. England had started ODI world cup back in 1975. They had failed to win any of these world cups. Introducing another world cup of a different format where England had the most experience was clearly an attempt by ECB to finally lift a world cup.

BCCI was unwilling and reluctant to participate in this T20 world cup. But ICC arm twisted BCCI into participating in it. BCCI, in protest, excluded all the seniors from the team and chose a team of younger players, who were expected to be no hopers in the tournament. And Dhoni , who had never captained even in school cricket, was made the captain of the team.

When the world cup ended, India emerged the surprise winner of the tournament. The reluctent BCCI, which wanted to have nothing to do with T20 suddenly saw so much potential in this format that they created IPL. It is something that revolutionised world cricket and brought far more money into cricket than what was the case before. So Indian surprise title win in T20 changed the game of cricket like how it had happened back in 1983.

This T20 win meant that Dhoni was identified as a leader of the team in all formats. And what results he produced ! India, under his captaincy won two more ICC titles , namely ODI world cup in 2011 at home and 2013 Champions Trophy in England. Dhoni became the only captain in history to have won all the three ICC tournaments. No other captain of no other country had come anywhere close.

Under Dhoni’s captaincy, Indian also rose up to become the number one test team. His cricket records are known to all. I will not repeat them here.

The influence that Dhoni had on Indain cricket is comparable to the influence of Kapildev. Both of them came from smaller unfashionable places. Prior to them, international cricket in India was considered the privilege of big city players. When India played their first ODI world cup in 1975, all but one players in the team were from metropolitan cities (Bombay, Delhi, Madras, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Baroda, one from Rajasthan). When Dhoni captained Indian in 2007 T20 tournament, there were players from unfashionable places like Ranchi (Jharkhand), Jullundhar (Punjab), Aligarh (UP), Rohtak (Haryana), Rae Bareli (UP), Kothamangalam (Kerala) etc. And these players did not just make up numbers, they were in the playing XI and added their weight to the team performance.

Dhoni gave plenty of self confidence to players comng from small places with no cricketing history. The fact that such excellent world class players, with such strong temperament can come from small places was a revelation to all. Their inclusion brought fresh ideas and fresh energy into the team composition. These palyers were not infected by the virus of complacency, lack of killer instinct and choking- that most players coming from big established places seemed afflicted from.

Dhoni’s appeal is India wide and for that matter global. In India, Chennai has adopted him as their favourite son in IPL, where he has served as the skipper right from the first IPL.

A biopic was made on Dhoni which was released in 2016. I found this movie quite rivetting and interesting. I have covered all the songs that appear in the movie with detailed writeups. It turns out that the movie also has a song that was ot picturised. And this song is the title song of the movie. This song was released only online in Youtube and was not part of the movie.

This song is a goosebump inducing song if you are an Indian cricket fan like me. This movie was released not just in Hindi, but in some other languages viz Marathi, Tamil, Telugu etc as well. I have listened to this song in all the languages and I love all the versions.

On the occasion of Dhoni’s 39th birthday today, here is this wonderful themw song cum title song from “M S Dhoni-the untold story”(2016). The Hindi version of the son is sung by Rochak Kohli who is also the music director of this song. One can also watch the Marathi, Tamil , and Telugu versions.

The video version is just two minutes long and makes you long for more. You can then listen to the audio version which is over 4 minutes long.

With this song, all the songs of “M S Dhoni-the untold story”(2016) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.
