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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lyrics

tu boley to aaun main
paidal aadhi raat ko
oo oo oo oo
achha maani teri baat
thank you

Missing Films of 1960s – 48
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Going by just the numbers, possibly the ‘Tarzan’ genre of films is the longest such category of films in the Hindi film industry. In the first five decades (from 1931 to 1980), I have tried to pick out the filmography by manual browsing through the Geet Kosh, I am able to locate a total of 15 films that starts with the word ‘Tarzan’ – and this might well be a record in the history of Hindi films.

Debut film for today is one of these Tarzan films – ‘Tarzan Aur Circus’. This 1965 film is produced under the banner of Sargam Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Shiv Kumar. The brief list of actors includes Azad, Chitra, Sherry, Sundar, Sujata, Rajan Kapoor etc.

The film has six songs listed. All songs are from the pen of Madhukar Rajasthani. And the music is composed by the duo of Husnlal Bhagatram.

The debut song is rendered by Asha Bhosle. The song is an ‘invite’ song in which the lady is trying to incite the gentleman to come and take refuge under the shadow of her tresses. The words by Madhukar Rajasthani are certainly very meaningful. Madhukar Rajasthani, a Hindi poet of significant fame, had some limited forays into the Hindi film industry. He has approximately 18 films to his credits, writing under two names – Madhukar and Madhukar Rajasthani.

A breezy melody from Husnlal-Bhagatram, enjoy this catchy rendition by Asha Bhosle.

 

Song – Meri Zulfon Ki Chhaaon Taley Aa Ja  (Tarzan Aur Circus) (1965) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajashtani, MD – Husnlal-Bhagatram

Lyrics

mehak raha hai mera husn salona
mehak raha hai mera husn salona
sharmaaun pakdoon main chunri ka kona

Blog Day : 3468 Post No. : 13923

Now, none of the regulars can say they have not heard this song. In a film that boasts of more than one song that competes for the title of the best song in the film, this song surely is one of the best songs in this film. Wow – that sure is saying something for the quality of songs of this film. In 1962, music director Ravi has been active as an independent music director for about seven years now, and he already has about 30 films behind him, that he has composed for. His films include such notable hits as ‘Ek Saal’ (1957), ‘Dilli Ka Thug’ (1958), ‘Ghar Sansaar’ (1958), ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’ (1960), ‘Ghunghat’ (1960), ‘Gharaana’ (1961), ‘Modern Girl’ (1961), ‘Bombay Ka Chor’ (1962) and many more. And then in 1962, out comes this Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen starrer called ‘China Town’ – and the popular response is “Baar Baar Dekho, Hazaar Baar Dekho”. Oh yes, the songs of this film – one just does not feel done with them, no matter how many times you have heard them.

Produced and directed by Shakti Samant, the cast of actors includes such notables – Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen, Madan Puri, SN Bannerjee, Keshav Rana, TunTun, Rashid Khan, Polson, Samson, Shetty, Jeevankala, Mridula and about twenty more names.  Songwriter of all the eight songs in this film is Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music, already mentioned, is by Ravi.

Eight songs in all, seven of which have already been showcased on our blog. And we come to the yippeee night for this film, brining on board this last, but not the least, songs of this film. It is a lovely composition, and just by listening to it, even without the visual, the image that comes to mind is – Helen. Ravi has tried to recreate the magic of “Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu” – albeit a slower pace, and has done a great composition.

But wait. What is this that I discover? The song that we have always heard in the film, and also as generally available in most uploads – goodness that song is missing from the listings in Geet Kosh. This question took up most of my time today afternoon and evening. I must admit that either I have been forgetful, or plain ignorant. Other folks may already know this, but this song has two versions, which, as I discovered after some leg work on the internet and searching my own collection, are quite different from each other, in terms of wordings. The tune and the melody is exactly the same but the words are noticeably different.

The Geet Kosh listing shows the title of this song as “Laakhon Haseenon Se Hai Gulzar China Town”. But as we play the video clip of this film, this song appears as the film beginning song, with the title line changed to “Rangeen Bahaaron Se Hai Gulzar China Town”. This latter version is the one that is the most available in all the searches one makes online. It is almost as if the former version does not exist. I checked in my collection, and am relieved to find that I have both versions in the folder of this film. And then, with some more intense search online, I am finally also able to locate a Sa Re Ga Ma upload, which is the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version. The upload comment specifically states that this recording is from the vinyl record prepared from the sound track. There is some error here possibly, because the sound track version is “Rangeen Bahaaron Se”. I checked some more and then I am able to locate an Eraksoldies upload of an SLBC (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corp) program that presents all songs of this film. Knowing this is an SLBC recording, these songs are quite surely from 78 rpm records. And this selection contains the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version. I checked again in my collection, and sure enough, this version in my collection also is from a 78 rpm recording. So anyways. . .

What may have been the reason to make two versions, is not clear at this time. We know that it was an era that all songs were recorded twice, once for the 78 rpm record, and once for the final sound track. We see many instances that the two versions are different, in that there is either a different antaraa, or an additional antaraa in the sound track version. More noticeably, the difference in the two versions generally is the music – different lengths of preludes and interludes, maybe an extra couplet in the beginning, subtle variations in the music arrangement and the instruments used. However, it is only rarely that we see that there is a considerable variation in the wordings of different lines themselves. It is generally accepted that the 78 rpm version is released first. Also generally that both versions are recorded simultaneously. But yes, there are known cases where these two recordings may have been done at different points in time, as per circumstantial requirements. Recall the song of ‘Chhalia’ (1960) in which the song “Chhalia Mera Naam. . .” was re-recorded for sound track after the censors raised objections to some words in the original recording.

By that logic, it would seem that the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version is recorded earlier and the “Rangeen Bahaaron Se” version which appears in the sound track was probably done later. The former, 78 rpm version carries two antaraas, and the latter soundtrack version carries three antaraas. And there is a sizeable modifications of words themselves. Now what prompted these wording changes – that needs to be explored. I would request our knowledgeable readers and friends to please add information related to this query.

The earlier songs posted for this film are listed below.

Baar Baar Dekho Hazaar Baar Dekho 617 25-Jan-09
Dekho Ji Ek Baalaa Jogi 3486 2-Feb-11
Yamma Yamma Yamma Tu Parwaana Main Shamma 4858 21-Oct-11
Hum Se Na Poochho Hum Kahaan Chale 11688 24-Dec-15
Ye Rang Na Chhootega Ulfat Ki Nishaani Hai 13586 15-Sep-17
Bada Qaatil Hai Mera Yaar China Chin Chin Chu 13917 14-Jan-18

 

Of the above listed songs, the “Yamma Yamma Yamma. . .” song actually includes two songs, which are listed at nos. 5 and 6 in the Geet Kosh. And the song “Bada Qaatil Hai Mera Yaar. . .” is the song listed at no. 8 in the Geet Kosh.

So we bring to Yippeee land, this most musical film, that started its journey on our blog close to – goodness, nine years. Wow. Maybe one day we shall do an analysis on the patterns in the time taken to bring all songs of a film on board. Maybe it brings out some interesting results.

Enjoy both these “Rangeen Bahaaren” and “Laakhon Haseeen” versions of the song. And welcome ‘China Town’ to Yippeee land. 🙂

[Ed Note: Ah yes, and the titling on the video clip (it is uploaded in the Rajshri channel) is also incorrect. They have captioned the upload as “Thandi Bahaaron Se. . .” whereas it is very clearly heard as ‘Rangeen Bahaaron Se. . .”.]

A few days back I got a very personal email from our Sudhir Kapurji. This was a personal invite for contributing to the blog on the occasion of it reaching 10000 songs. At that time we were on song number 9720. Today before writing this when I visited the blog I see we are at song number 9750. So it is an alarm bell for slow pokes like me to send contributions to Atul at the earliest. Also when I saw the mail I had mentally decided that whatever I send till the D-Day of our blog should be happy and peppy songs. So here I am with my own version of an invitation song.

When one talks of a movie called “Baazi”, one normally means the Dev Anand- Geeta Bali starrer of 1952. It turns out that there was another movie with the same title 32 years later. This movie “Baazi” (1984) was a Dharmendra Rekha starrer and it did not have much impact at the box office.
