Blog Day :

4504 Post No. : 16044

Today, November 16th 2020 is the 53rd Remembrance Day of the music director, Roshan Lal Nagrath (14/07/1917 – 16/11/1967). In 1951, he had composed teri duniya mein dil lagta nahi waapas bula le for ‘Baawre Nain’ (1951).The Almighty seemed to have taken his composition seriously and snatched him away from us early at the age of 50.

Most of Roshan’s song compositions were like poems woven in Hindustani classical music. This was but natural because firstly, he was trained in Hindustani classical music in Marris College of Music (now Bhatkhande Music Institute) in Lucknow in the 1930s. During the same period, he had also learnt Sarod from Ustad Allauddin Khan and later learnt Dilruba/Esraj on his own. Secondly, he worked with illustrious lyricists who were also poets, like Kidar Sharma, Shailendra, Sahir Ludhianvi, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Shakeel Badayuni, Neeraj, Bharat Vyas, Kavi Pradeep etc.

In 1940, Roshan joined All India Radio (AIR), Delhi as a musician where he came into contact with Khurshid Anwar who had joined AIR as Music Programme Producer in 1939. Roshan worked in AIR for about 8 years during which he got the rich experience as a musician for all types of semi-classical music like thumris, dadras, ghazals, qawwalis and also the folk songs. During his stint in AIR, Roshan got married to Ira Moitra who was a regular singer at AIR, Delhi.

In 1948, Roshan decided to shift to Mumbai to try a career in Hindi film industry as a music director. Due to his wife Ira Roshan’s acquaintance with Anil Biswas, Roshan got the first-hand exposure of composing songs for films from Anil Biswas by attending his song recordings. During this period, he also worked with his erstwhile AIR colleague, music director Khurshid Anwar as his music assistant for ‘Singaar’ (1949). After this assignment, it was struggling days for him as he did not have any assignment.

Roshan met Kidar Sharma, producer-director, who had already announced his film, ‘Neki Aur Badi’ (1949) with Snehal Bhatkar as the music director. He found Roshan to be musically talented person. Knowing that Roshan was going through hard days, Kidar Sharma decided to entrust the work of music direction to him with the consent of Snehal Bhatkar. [Incidentally, for ‘Gunaah’ (1953), after one song, Kidar Sharma had replaced Roshan with his consent and entrusted the music direction to Snehal Bhatkar]. Unfortunately, ‘Neki Aur Badi’ (1949) badly flopped at the box office. Roshan was devasted and went into depression. Again, Kidar Sharma came to his rescue and entrusted him the music direction of his next film ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950).

The box office success of ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950) with almost all the 9 songs in the film becoming popular, established Roshan as a successful music director. This success was followed by ‘Ham Log’ (1951), ‘Malhar’ (1951), ‘Anhonee’ (1952), ‘Naubahaar’ (1952), Chaandni Chowk’ (1954) etc. Roshan did not have a good success in the second half of 1950s as a result of which he had taken some ‘B’ grade films’ assignments. In the 1960s, like ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950), Roshan started with ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960) which become one of the biggest block busters of 1960 with all its songs becoming popular.

Career-wise, 1960s were the best period for Roshan. He had a spate of musical successes in ‘Aarati’ (1962), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), ‘Dooj Ka Chaand’ (1964), ‘Bheegi Raat’ (1965), ‘Mamta’ (1966), ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967), ‘Anokhi Raat’ (1967) etc.

Mukesh was a friend of Roshan during their Delhi days in the early 40s. With Raj Kapoor in ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950), Mukesh was the obvious choice to sing for Raj Kapoor under his music direction. One can say that it was with Mukesh Roshan started his musical success in ‘Baawre Nain’, ‘Malhaar’ (1951) and ‘Hum Log’ (1951). Incidentally, when Mukesh produced his first film ‘Malhaar’ (1951), he entrusted the music direction to his friend Roshan.

Following the contractual obligation for Mukesh under which he could not sing songs for any other films during the making of ‘Maashooka’ (1953) in which he was the lead actor, Roshan’s collaboration with Mohammed Rafi among other male playback singers began to a greater extent than the earlier period. During 1953-56, Mukesh was concentrating mainly in his acting career and so was Talat Mehmood. This gave Rafi an opportunity to consolidate his collaboration with other music directors. In due course of time, Rafi’s collaboration with Roshan rose to such an extent that post 1954, Rafi became the main male playback singer for Roshan and sang most of the songs for Roshan among the male playback singers. . Among the female playback singers, obviousely, Lata Mangeshkar was Roshan’s main singer followed by Asha Bhosle.

Interestingly, Roshan’s musical career really took off with his association with Mukesh in Baawre Nain’ (1950) and ended with Mukesh in Roshan’s last film, ‘Anokhi Raat’ (1968).

The discussion on Roshan would remain incomplete without discussing his role in making the filmy qawwalis popular. If Madan Mohan was regarded as the king in the musical compositions of ghazals, Roshan was the king of the musical compositions of qawwalis. In ‘Chaandni Chowk’ (1954), Roshan composed his first qawaali – an all ladies qawwali ‘har baat puchhiye ye haqeeqat na puchhiye’. But his most popular qawwalis came from the pen of Sahir Ludhainvi in ‘Baabar’ (1960), Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960), ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963) and ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967).

The piece de resistance among the filmy qawwalis both for Roshan and Sahir Ludhianvi is the immortal na to kaarwaan ki talash hai ……ye ishq ishq hai from ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960). This is an unique qawwali. To the best of my knowledge, it is Hindi’s films’ longest qawwali (12minutes). It is the only filmy qawwali in which apart from Urdu/Persian/Hindi words, 4 lines in Punjabi and few words in Brijbhasha have been used. It is the only filmy qawwali in which an extensive definition of ‘ishq’ has been outlined to include not only the Sufiyana tradition of love towards God but also the spiritual love of Radha-Krishna, Meerabai, Seeta and Ram, Lord Buddha, Masiha among others. This type of qawwalis can only happen in India beacuse of its composite culture. Both Roshan and Sahir Ludhianvi had spent their formative stages of life in the neighbourhood of muslims and Hindu/Sikhs, respectively.

For Roshan, it was a challenging work to sustain the audience and listeners’ interest in 12-minute qawwali especially at a time when people had no patience to listen to even 3-minute songs in the theatres. It was the ingenuity of Roshan that he composed the qawwali, dividing in three broad segments with varying melodies and rhythms and ending with fast tempo and crescendo. It is also a qawwali in which five playback singers lent their voices – Manna Dey, S D Batish, Asha Bhosle, Sudha Malhotra and Mohammed Rafi.

During his filmy career (1949-1967), Roshan composed around 435 songs in 58 films of which the Blog has covered 347 songs as of date.

On the occasion of the 53rd Remembrance Day of Roshan, I am presenting a melodious song, ‘chheen liya beimaan mera dil’ from ‘Zindagi Aur Hum’ (1962). The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and is picturised on Nalini Jaywant. The words are of Pandit Shivkumar which have been set to music by Roshan. Apparently, the tune of the song is inspired from Roshan’s own song, saari saari raat teri yaad sataaye.

Song-Chheen liya re beimaan mera dil (Zindagi Aur Hum)(1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Pt Shivkumar, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

chheen liya re beimaan mera dil
chheen liya re beimaan mera dil
toot na jaaye kahin
toot na jaaye ae
toot na jaaye beimaan mera dil
chheen liya re beimaan

sona na maanga roopa na manga
nahin maanga dhan dhaan ho o
jaadu ki joro baandhi najariya
kar diye bekal praan ho o
kar diye bekal praan
chheen liya aa
chheen liya re beimaan mera dil
chheen liya re beimaan mera dil

champa na maanga
chameli na maangi
na rang ras ki khaan ho o
tere ishaare pe bagiya ki bagiya
kar deti kurbaan ho o
kar deti kurbaan
chheen liya aa
chheen liya re beimaan mera dil
chheen liya re beimaan mera dil

naam na jaanoon
gaam na jaanoon
na pehli pehchaan ho o
kaise tikaa loon kaise nikaaloon
shaam ka tu mehmaan ho o
shaam ka tu mehmaan
chheen liya aa
chheen liya re beimaan mera dil
chheen liya re beimaan mera dil
toot na jaaye kahin
toot na jaaye ae
toot na jaaye beimaan mera dil

‘Zindagi Aur Hum’ (1962) was produced by Rashid Parwez and was directed by Pandit Anandkumar. The star cast included Nalini Jaywant, Chand Usmani, Naina, Dinesh, David, Leela Mishra, S Nazir, Mukri, Amar, Jagdish Kanwal, Chandabai, Anwaribai etc. The story was written by Pandit Shivkumar who was the elder brother of Pandit Anandkumar. Pandit Shivkumar also wrote lyrics for 5 of the 6 songs. It was a last film for Pandit Anandkumar as a director though he continued to write screen-play and dialogues for few more subsequent films. It was also the last film for Pandit Shivkumar if I go by the tribute given to him in the credit title of the film.

The highlight of the film is that a major part of the story revolves around the three main actresses – Nalini Jaywant, Chand Usmani and Naina. Hence, the six songs in the film were rendered by Lata Mangeshkar who has lip synced for all the three main actresses in the film. All the 6 songs (of which one song has two versions – solo version by Lata and duet version by Suman Kalyanpur and Sudha Malhotra) are very melodious. I am surprised as to why these songs set to music by Roshan are not as well-known as his equivalent songs in other films. As usual, the reason was that the film failed at the box office.

The DVD of the film is available on one of the video sharing platforms. Unfortunately, the film is heavily edited as a result of which there is some problems with the continuity of the story. With this limitation, I am attempting to present a gist of the story of the film below:

Chaudhari Niranjan Singh (S. Nazir) is a wealthy and a powerful landlord having two daughters – Tulsi (Chand Usmani) and Surajmukhi (Naina). In the neighbouhood, Kaudi (Nalini Jaywant) stays with her widowed mother (Leela Mishra). Tulsi, Surajmukhi and Kaudi are friends and they spend most of their time together. They always have some teasing sessions. In one of such sessions about their life partners, Surajmukhi’s says that she would marry a man of her choice while Tulsi says that she would marry a boy as per her father’s wishes. Kaudi on the other hand says that she would never marry in her life. But their fate is written something else.

There is a secret in Chaudhari Niranjan’s life. In the younger days, he had an affair with a widowed girl with whom he had a child out of wedlock. For the sake of family prestige, both the widowed girl and Chaudhari Niranjan decide to keep this as a secret. That child was none other than Tulsi and the widowed mother was also Kaudi’s mother.

After some years, Choudhari Niranjan plans for marrying Tulsi with a boy from his own community. He had selected Sujaan Singh, the son of his close friend as a bridegroom for Tulsi. Chaudhary Niranjan’s community leaders are against this marriage due to Tulsi being a child out of wedlock. But Choudhari goes ahead with the marriage. On the wedding day, when the couple were returning after the marriage, Sujaan is shot dead (probably akin to a honour killing). Tulsi returns to her home as a widow.

After some time, Manvir Singh (Dinesh, who has a double role in the film) along with his father (David) comes to Kaudi’s house for a temporary stay. Manvir Singh has returned from abroad after completing his education. The family had known each other. What surprises everyone is that Manvir Singh resembles Sujaan Singh. Being a guest in Kaudi’s house, both Manvir Singh and Kaudi have some ‘nonk-jhonk’ (light teasing arguments). In this process, Kaudi develops liking for him. Both Tulsi and Surajmukhi had been the childhood friends of Manvir Singh as his father was a friend of Chaudhari Niranjan.

In the meanwhile, Chaudhuri Niranjan is looking for a bridegroom for his second daughter, Surajmukhi and he has already selected Manvir Singh. Surajmukhi is happy about her father’s selection as she also secretly loves him. During the discussion with Manvir Singh’s father, Chaudhary offers 50 acres of land as a dowry which he raises to 100 acres. But Manvir Singh declines to marry a girl on the strength of her father’s money power.

Ever since Manvir Singh has come to stay in Kaudi’s house as a guest, Tulsi gets to see him often. But whenever she sees him or hears when he plays his flute, she gets convulsion and falls on the ground injuring herself. She thinks that her husband Sujaan has resurfaced. Both Kaudi and Surajmukhi tries to convince Tulsi that it is her illusion as he is not Sujaan. But she is not convinced. In this milieu, a situation develops in which all the three girls, Tulsi, Surajmukhi and Kaudi secretly love Manvir Singh but there is no reciprocation from his side to any one of them.

In the meanwhile, in the greed of getting 100 acres of land from Chaudhari Niranjan as dowry for marrying Surajmukhu, Manvir Singh’s father pressurizes the son to agree to marry her. In disgust, Manver Singh leaves the house to meet Chaudhary Niranjan in his mansion. After seeing him, Chaudhari Niranajan is perplexed as he is also surprise to find him resembling Sujaan. Manvir Singh makes it very clear to Chaudhari Niranjan that he has come with intention of his marriage with Tulsi after coming to know of unfortunate events in her life. Chaudhari Niranjan gets angry on Manvir Singh and ask him to leave. Surajmukhi secretly hears this conversation. This news also goes to Tulsi also who show happiness. Later Manvir Singh meets Tulsi to get her nod for the marriage. But after seeing him, she once again gets convulsion from which she does not recover and dies.

With this incidence, Surajmukhi decides to leave her father’s house as she does not need any worldly pleasure. However, Manvir’s father persuades her to return for his own vested interest to getting a fat dowry. Both Chaudhary Niranjan and Manvir Singh’s greedy father think that deck is now cleared for marriage of Surajmukhi with Manvir Singh. But there is a twist in the tale. When all of them arrive at Kaudi’s house, they find that Manvir Singh has already married to Kaudi. After some arguments, wiser counsel prevails on Chaudhari Niranjan Singh and with the consent of Surajmukhi, he agrees to formally get Kaudi married to Manvir Singh at his expenses in his haveli as a penance for his daughter Tulsi.

The film has an unusual story line in the genre of family drama. Pandit Shivkumar’s dialogues are crisp without using long monologues. The language used in the dialogues is a mix of high-sounding Hindi and Urdu words and sounds quite different from the usual ‘Hindustani’ used in the family drama. All the main actors in the film including the new comers Naina and Dinesh have given good performances. For Director Pandit Anandkumar and music director, Roshan, the film is their repeat performances in ‘Naubahaar’ (1952) in regards to the music composition of the songs and the picturization thereof.

Despite good story, good performances by the main actors and melodious songs, why did the film failed to score on the box offices? In my view, the film did not have ‘star value’ in the sense that barring Nalini Jaywant who was already on a declining trajectory on her acting career, none of the other actors had the capacity to attract the cinegoers. There were also no box-office ‘ingredients’ like villain, mujra dances, fights etc. Even the role of Chaudhari Niranjan as the landlord had no villainous character and hence no mujra dances and fights.

‘Zindagi Aur Hum’ (1962) had 6 songs, including a double version song of which 3 songs have been covered in the Blog. I am presenting the 4th song, jaa re jaa re meri chhod chunariya, sung by Lata Mangeshkar to appear on the Blog. The song is written by Pandit Shivkumar which is set to music by Roshan. The song is picturised on Nalini Jaywant.

I have come across on the internet at many places that Shiv Kumar Saroj has been accredited to the songs of this film except one song which is written by Veer Mohammed Puri. However, I have gone by the name given in the credit title which is ‘Pandit Shivkumar’.

I feel that Shiv Kumar Saroj who was a well-known announcer with Radio Ceylon during 1959-68 is a different person than Pandit Shivkumar. It is evident from the credit title of the film where it is mentioned that the film is dedicated to Pandit Shivkumar who could not see his visions realised. This indicates that at the time of release of the film, he was not alive to see his film which he wrote. Pandit Shivkumar started his filmy career in mid 1930s with Prabhat Film Company as writer. Later, his younger brother Pandit Anandkumar joined him. Shiv Kumar Saroj occasionally wrote lyrics for films from 1966 (Naag Mandir) till about mid-1980s.

With this song, only two songs from the film are left to be covered which I propose to cover in my next set of articles slated for this month.

nand ghar anand bhayo
jai kanhaiyya lal ki

Greetings all friends on this auspicious celebration of Nandotsav today. Just a little while back, the prayers and aartis were being held in all temples celebrating the anniversary of the appearance of Krsna, in a jailhouse in Mathura. The main telecast was coming from the Janambhoomi temple in Mathura itself. All temples were crowded with devotees who had come for the darshan of infant Krsna, who appeared to Devaki and Vasudev during their confinement in the prison of Kans, the cruel and vengeful king of Mathura.  And worse, Kans was the cousin brother of the very lady, Devaki, whom he had imprisoned. The story of that confinement and of the reasons behind it has been told many times.
