Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Nargis-1993’. This movie seems to be an obscure or un-released movie of its time. I was not aware of this movie or its songs. But I got to listen to today’s song on ‘Vividh Bharati’ around two years back and since then I was longing to share it on the blog. When I listened to this song first I was not aware of the name of the movie it was from. It was only later when I looked for the details of its movie and other songs that I became aware of the name of the movie.

The first and the foremost thing that I got excited about this song was the composition which I liked and its singing by Lata Mangeshkar. I was surprised to have never come across this song during all these years since it was produced.

Secondly the name of this movie is missing from the list of Atul ji’s ‘Yearwise Review of Lata Mangeshkar HF Songs’. I checked the post for this year ‘1993’ again and again and also checked the posts for the years ‘1994’ and ‘1992’ to see if this movie name is there if was released earlier or later. But ‘Hindi Filmography-Vol-1 (1986-2000)’ mentions this movie of the year ‘1993’. (So we need to add this movie to this list also).

“Nargis-1993” was directed by Khalid Mohammad for ‘Filmtech, Bombay. Khalid Mohammad was also the producer of this movie.

This movie had Hema Malini, Naseeruddin Shah, Zeba, Manzoor Ali, Dinesh Hingoo, Neelam, Arun Bakshi, Anant Mahadevan, Sulbha Deshpande, Sudhir Dalvi, Nandita Thakur, Rabia, Kamal Deep, Chandani, Amjad Khan and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 26.04.1993.

According to the information available online this movie has the following songs in it.

S.No. Song Title Singer
01 Arey tu pawan basanti Lata Mangeshkar
02 Main kaise kahoon jaaneman Jagjit Singh
03 Kisi aashiyaane mein -1 Lata Mangeshkar
04 Dono ke dil hain majboor pyaar se Jagjit Singh, Lata Mangeshkar
05 O jaane jaana qurbaana Asha Bhonsle, Naseeruddin Shah
06 Kaahe ab ki ae bahaar Lata Mangeshkar
07 Kisi aashiyaane mein -2 Shweta – I

From the above table we can see that the voice Lata Mangeshkar featured in four songs of this movie – three solo songs – and one duet.

Today’s song is a solo song which we are going to listen to and enjoy.

The lyrics for today’s song and all the other songs of this movie have been written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.
Music is composed by Basu Chakravarty (of Basu-Manohari).

With the today’s song this movie ‘Nargis-1993’ makes his debut on the blog. And it joins the movie with same title i.e. ‘Nargis-1946’ on the blog.

Over to the song now …..

This article is the 17200th blog post for the blog.

Blog Day :

5212 Post No. : 17200

Slowly and steadily, and also unnoticeably, we arrive at yet another century milstone for the blog. This article is the 172th century post, or in other words post number 17200.

The previous century was achieved on 14 august 2022 (Blog day number 5140). This century is being achieved on 25th october 2022( Blog day number 5212). In other words, this century has arrived in 72 days, at a glacial pace of 1.4 songs daily.

This is the second century milestone for the blog after I retired from service in June 2022. If I thought that I would be able to devote more time to the blog post retirement, that does not seem to have happened.

There are some reasons that may have prevented me from going at a better rate. One reason is that the sheer volume of content in the blog that we have accumulated requires lots and lots of background work. I am still devoting considerable time to the blog but that is happening in ackground work, and is not getting reflected in the number of posts.

Readers who are following Blog Ten Year Challenge series will notice that we used to post as many as eight songs a day ten years ago. That was the situation when I was a full fledged employee holding a key post. Still I was able to be highly productive as far as the blog was concerned.

I used to wake up before 5 AM those days and would start working on the blog right away. Today also I wake up at the same time, but I am unable to do any blog work right away. My morning is devoted to walking my two dogs one by one between 5 AM and six AM. I did not have to do this ten years ago. My dogs those days freely roamed around on their own and came back on their own. This state of affairs continued till I retired. It is only now I am realising how much time my dogs were saving me during my working days, because I did not have to walk them daily. They did their walking, running and other excecises on their own.

Right now my residence is seeing some construction work, so for the time being I am unable to open my laptop right away because it means waking my wife up. Once the construction work is over, I will be able to keep the computer in some other room and that would allow me valuable early morning hours before my wife even wakes up. That is what I used to do doing my working days, when my computers were located in a room far away from the prying eyes of my wife. 😉 Moreover, even my wife was with me only for a few days in a year as she was herself working in a far off place.

Most articles that get covered in the blog these days are guest posts. Others are mostly Blog Ten Year Challenge posts. The idea now a days is that there should be at least one post daily and taht there should not be a DOT day in the blog. The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (Blog day number 4177). So we now have seen at least one post daily continously for 1035 days. Hopefully this will continue for long. There were days when I was unable to post, like for instance during the last few days of my service. Sudhir Jee has kept the blog flag high on those days by posting at least one article daily.

Personally I have not been able to really “blog” where blog means expressing my views in detail on various topics. There are lots and lots of topics where I would like to express myself in detail. In the past I have written in detail about several topics. Hopefully I will be able to achieve the same form soon enough.

While looking for a century post song, I came across this rare song from a rare movie which is a composition of artists that are hardly known to most music lovers.

The movie is “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959). “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959) was produced by S J Rajdev and directed by S Pal for Rajni Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Nazi, Samar Roy, Heera Sawant, Burhan, Jillani, Tuntun, Nimmo, Shashimala, Majnu, Malik, Balwant Sharma, Khursheed, Razak, Govind, Khanna, Parshuram, Gawli, Sandow etc in it.

There were six obscure songs in this obscure movies. One song from “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959) has been covered so far.

Here is the second song from the movie. It is sung by Minu Purushottam and Khursheed Baawra. Khawar Zamaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Prem.

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

I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose encouragement, support and contributions in one way or the other has kept this musical bandwagon rolling on and on for more than 14 years, which is a lot for an online collaboration of music lovers. Hopefully we will see this blog keep adding many more songs and centuries to its tally in the days, months and years to come.

“Faislaa”(1965) was produced and directed by Jugal Kishore for Jugal Productions, Bombay. The movie had Shaikh Mukhtar, L.Vijayalaxmi, Jugal Kishore, Jagdeep, Jagdev, Sulochana Chatterji, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Sabina, Ravikant, S.K.Shukla,  Ashita Puri, Baby Premlata, Haroon, Sheela, Meherbanoo, Ajit, Soni, V.Soni, Bam Lahri, Lalchand, Jagdish, R.L.Soni, Ashok,Shakti Sabharwal, S.L.Sharma, Helen, V.K.Sabherwal, Kishen Sharma, Golly, Ram Kumar, Khrushid, G.S.Gaija, Surinder Sharma,  Nazir Kashmiri,  S.K.Joshi,  Kapoor, Sadiq etc in it.

“Faislaa”(1965) was later remade as “Dada”(1978) with changed cast and that movie, unlike “Faisla”(1965) turned out to be a surprise hit.

Failure of “Faislaa”(1965) was because its casting was not to public liking. Jagdeep, a quintessential comedian, was cast as hero (same role as essayed by Vind Mehra in “Dada”(1978) and that sealed the fate of “Faislaa”(1965).

“Faislaa”(1965) had seven songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Faislaa”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Usha Khanna and chorus. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

The song is lip synced by L Vijaylaxmi. She is accompanied by several female dancers singing in chorus. One can identify Edwina and Manjula among them. Jugal Kishore and Jagdeep are also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Here is the fourth song from “Zingaaro”(1963) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

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

This rare song is the 400th song in the blog from movies released in 1963. To put things in perspective, there were 580 songs in all in movies released in 1963.


Song-Masti bhare hain shokh nazaare (Zingaaro)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-S N Tripathi

Lyrics

Masti bhare hain shokh nazaare

Masti bhare hain shokh nazaare

keh do hawa se mohe chhede naa aa
paa ke akeli mohe ghere naa
yoon na udaaye anchra mera
ghunghraali laten yoon bakhere na
nainon mein bhar ke sapne tumhaare ae
nainon mein bhar ke sapne tumhaare
nikli hoon main bhi ee zulfen samwaare
aaja re aaja piyaa

darr darr jaaun main toofaanon se ae
mujhko chhupa le tu nigaahon mein
lahraa ke aaye badra kaare ae

nikli hoon main bhi ee zulfen sanwaare
Masti bhare hain shokh nazaare
nikli hoon main bhi ee zulfen sanwaare
aaja re aaja piyaa

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 84
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 27 August 2012) saw a whopping ten songs from ten different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6522 Jeevan sapna toot gayaa Anokha Pyaar(1948) Movie YIPPEED by now
6523 Mohabbat bhi jhoothhi zamaana bhi jhoothha Hamaari Beti(1950) 6 songs covered out of 10 by now
6524 Mast bahaaron ka main aashiq Farz(1967) Movie YIPPEED by now
6525 Ham to jaate apne gaaon apni raam raam raam Deewaana(1967) Movie YIPPEED by now
6526 Ae sakhi raadhike baawri ho gayee Jurmaana (1979) Movie YIPPEED by now
6527 Balma mere balma Shyaamla (1979) Movie YIPPEED by now
6528 Kabhi kabhi mere dil mein khayaal aata hai Kabhi Kabhi(1976) Movie YIPPEED by now
6529 Ho ooperwaale tera jawaab nahin Avtaar (1983) 3 songs covered out of 5 so far
6530 Tan pe lagti kaanch ki boonden Aastha (1997) One song covered out of 5 so far
6530 Mastaana albela sirf ek tu hai laakhon mein akela Sharaarat(2002) One song covered out of 7 so far

It can be observed that six movies (out of ten) whose songs were covered in the blog on this Date ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with four movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (27 August 2022).

“Hamaari Beti”(1950) is one of the eligible movies.

“Hamaari Beti”(1950) was produced and directed by Shobhana Samarth for Shobhana Samarth Pictures Bombay. This movie was produced to launch the career of Shobhana Samarth’s eldest daughter Nutan.

The movie had Nutan, Shekhar,Baby Tanuja, Motilal, Shobhana Samarth, Veera, David, K.N.Singh, Randhir, Agha, Pramila, Cuckkoo, Amir bai, Nandani, Master Ratan etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. As many as six songs have been covered so far.

Here is the seventh song from “Hamaari Beti”(1950) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Lyricist is not mentioned in HFGK. Snehal Bhatkar is the music director.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is easy to guess that the song, given the nature of its lyrics (expression of love) was picturised on Nutan. However, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This article is the 17100th song post in the blog.
This post also includes the 1500th Hindi lyrics contribution by Sudhir ji.

Blog Day :

5140 Post No. : 17100

We in this blog regularly publish song posts everyday without a fail. The last date when no post appeared in the blog was 25 December 2019 (Blog day number 4177). Today (14 August 2022) is the 5140th day for the blog. So there has been no DOT day for the blog during last 973 days !

When we are this regular, then song posts add up and before we realize, we arrive at the next century mark. The previous century mark was a big occasion when we reached a round figure of 17000 song posts.

Nowadays only one or two songs posts appear in a day whereas more than six songs used to appear daily in the blog ten years ago, as we have been noticing while discussing songs under our Blog Ten Year Challenge series. Even then we reach our centuries fairly regularly. The 17000th song post appeared on 2 June 2022. Today, on 14 august 2022, that is 63 days later, we arrive at the next century song post, namely song post number 17100 !

This is a century song post with some difference. It is the first century post for the blog after the blog became ASAD Bhopali. In other words, it is the first century post after I superannuated from my Railway service and settled down at Bhopal. If I or others thought that the pace of the blog will pick up, that has not happened. In any case, we nowadays are not much concerned about the pace at which we are going. We just ensure that no day should be a DOT date.

The century post is always a special post that showcases a song that is special in one way or the other. All the 170 century songs (yes we have had that many century posts in the blog) have been very special songs. Assuming each of these song to be 3 minutes long, listening to all these songs non stop will require 510 minutes, viz 8 hours 30 minutes ! Assuming someone sets out to listen to all the 17100 songs at the same rate of 3 minutes per song, he will need 51300 minutes, which is 855 hours viz nearly 36 days (non stop round the clock) worth of music !

Regulars have actually listened to all these songs. I, who has published bulk of these song posts have actually listened to all these songs multiple times !

So one can have some rough idea of how much time has gone into the effort of bringing all this collection together at one place. And this is by now an online collaboration of nearly two dozen like minded music lovers who have been putting on enormous amount of time and effort and love into this ongoing online project of collecting and piecing together authentic information about the glorious history of Hindi movie music.

As a result of our collective effort, we have showcased songs from over 4600 movies. More than 1000 singers, more than 800 lyricists and more than 500 music directors are already represented in the blog. 1329 movies have already been YIPPEEE’D.

The above figures may not look very impressive to the uninitiated, but the initiated persons will know that this is perhaps the only place online where all this information is available at one place. For instance, many of the YIPPEEE’D movies had songs that are rare songs. Those missing songs have been specially located and uploaded by us (more specifically by Sudhir Ji). Similarly a few of the special songs (including century songs) were special songs that were uploaded for the first time online while those special posts were published.

During the process of our posts, We found songs that were incorrectly credited in HFGK. we have come across songs that did not find mention in HFGK. We also had occasions when new information about songs and artists were received from comments made by knowledgeable sources. Sometimes even close relatives of the artists commented on our posts and shared invaluable information with us.

All the above facts are extremely satisfying to us who are associated with the blog in various capacities. We feel that we in our own small ways, are contributing our mite to human knowledge . With time, our contribution may find more appreciation, I am sure of it.

I started thinking about a song for the occasion only at the last moment which is my wont these days. I finally zeroed in on this song from ‘Nav Durga’ (1953).

‘Nav Durga’ was produced by Homi Wadia and directed by Babubhai Mistri for Basant Pictures Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Mahipal, SN Tripathi, Sulochana Chatterji, Amarnath, Agha Shapur, Raja Sandow etc. in it. The movie had nine songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the blog so far.

The song being discussed is sung by two sisters. We have hundreds of songs sung by Mangeshkar sisters, but there were other sisters too in HFM. But duets sung by these sisters are few and far between. Suman Kalyanpur (nee Hemadi) has sung a few duets with her sisters, such as Shyama Chittar (nee Hemadi). Geeta Dutt too had a sister called Laxmi Roy, but her sister sang very few songs before vanishing from the HFM after her marriage.

The song under discussion is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy) and Laxmi Roy. Ramesh Chandra Pandey is the lyricist. Music is composed by SN Tripathi. This is a joyous song. Geeta Dutt sings initial stanzas. Laxmi Roy’s voice appears towards the later half of the song.

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

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement that is providing us with the energy to drive this musical bandwagon on and on. Let this musical bandwagon roll on and on for many more centuries of songs.

The blog completes 14 years of its existence today (19 july 2008-19 july 2022).

Blog Day :

5114 Post No. : 17060

Today 19th of July 2022 we celebrate the birthday of this blog. Regulars on the blog are aware that this blog was started on 19th of July 2008. So, today the blog celebrates its’ fifteenth birthday.

Normally on this occasion we enjoy birthday songs, ‘saalgirah’ songs, ‘party’ songs, or sometimes ‘bringing memories back’ songs or songs that are filled with ‘nostalgia’ as I have shared them earlier on the birthday of the blog.

But, today, I am approaching this post differently and I will not repeat what I have earlier said about the blog and my love for this blog and how this blog has become a part of my life since I become associated with it.

So today, instead of playing a song for the blog we will enjoy a song ‘as the blog is singing for us’ 😊

Yes, the blog in its teens now have already achieved a unique position on online platforms and in the coming days its’ achievements are only going to be increase by leaps and bounds and further …

So, the blog is happy about its growth and feels like singing today for all of us, and when this blog sings the whole universe sings 😊obviously …

Just imagine that the ‘shokh kaliyaan’ are the newer posts appearing on the blog daily and songs which are rare, unheard, never known or even known songs but accompanied with information, details, trivia, nostalgia and much more … And when the new posts arrived the ‘heart’ of the readers automatically starts throbbing. The readers are the ‘mast’ ‘flowers’, and when their heart starts throbbing the whole atmosphere becomes jovial and enjoying ..

‘jhoomkar partbaton pe ghataa chhaa rahi hai’ … these are the special occasions like anniversaries of artistes, centuries of the artistes or blog members when we expect the blog to ‘rain’ the ‘posts’ especially from our seniors like Arun ji, Sudhir ji, Atul ji, Sadanand ji, Raha Saab, Shenoy Sir ji, Nahm ji, Nalini ji, Gajendra ji and others. And posts coming under ‘blog ten-year challenge’ with contributions raining from Prakashchandra ji.

By the way Arun ji’s posts coming on the blog itself makes the day a ‘special occasion’ as and when the posts come.

All the posts appearing carry forward the story of ‘love and passion’ for ‘music’ and for the ‘blog’. Every day the blog feels ‘pyaar ki umr shaayad kareeb aa rahi hai’ unaware of how much we all love it …The blog happily continues with its ‘pyaar ki daastaan’ every day.

‘bhool kar raah koyi haseen aa na jaaye’ … These are the new readers coming into the contact of this blog and falling in love with this blog. Even the ‘pardaa nasheen’ have to take care or they will fall in love with this blog.

From its side the blog already alerts you ‘is jagah aaj ek naujawaan’ gaa rahaa hai … (its ‘age’ doesn’t matter 😊 it’s an adolescent growing into youth😊)

‘ye zameen gaa rahi hai
aasmaan gaa rahaa hai
saath mere
ye saara jahaan gaa rahaa hai’

Happy birthday ‘atulsongaday’…!!!

Enjoy today’s melodious composition by Pancham Da with the beautiful verses of Anand Bakshi and rendered lovingly by Amit Kumar.

Today’s song is from the ‘1982’ movie ‘Teri Kasam’.

In the movie Kumar Gaurav lip-syncs the song. Poonam Dhillon and others can also be seen in the picturization of this song …

Blog Day : 5033 Post No. : 16942 Movie Count : 4598

Today’s song is from an obscure, not very well known film Sabyasachi-1948. The name of the film is rather strange and not many people will know what it means. In simple translation it means a person who is Ambidextrous or one who can use both hands with equal expertise. This was an adjective used famously in Mahabharat for Arjun. He was an extraordinary archer and he could do this with both his hands separately and simultaneously, with the same expertise.

This was a film made by Associated Pictures, Calcutta. No wonder then that the entire crew and cast was from Bengal only.Even the Heroine, Meera Mishra-though not a Bangla actress, was an expert in Bangla language, who had acted in few Bangla movies too. During the early cinema period, Calcutta was also a major centre for Hindi films and from 1932 to almost 1955, Hindi films were made there regularly, by several film makers including of course the New Theatres. However, after 1955, there were almost no actors/actresses who could speak fluent Hindi. More than that, the Bangla film industry itself had grown so much that there was no need to make Hindi films anymore.

From as early as 1935-36, Hindi films were made based on Novels of Bangla language. The contribution of Bangla language to provide fodder for films is unmatched.(The only other Indian language to do this is Malayalam). This was mainly because the people in Bengal are avid readers of books. During my Marketing career, I visited various parts of Bengal in 20 years. I used to be amazed at the “Book Fairs’ held at Calcutta. I visited these fairs a few times and was overwhelmed to see lakhs of people purchasing books there. I think the Book Fairs must be doing a turnover of crores of rupees !

I tried to make a list of Hindi films based on Bangla novels and I easily crossed the 50’s mark, when I stopped. 90 % of these films were Hits. Some of the popular Hindi films on Bengali novels are Devdas-35, Milan-46, Anandmath-52, Do bigha zameen-53, Sujata-55, Kabuliwala-61, Ghunghat-60, Bandini-63, Namkeen-67, Bhuvan Shome-69, Satyakam-69, Sahib, bibi aur ghulam-62, Khamoshi-70, Uphaar-71, Saudagar-73, Amar Prem-72, Chupke Chupke-75 (my favourite), Kora Kagaz-74, Balika Badhu-76, Kitaab-77, Apne paraye-80, lekin-90, Rudaali-93 and many more. You will notice that films on Bangla novels were not just family dramas or tragedies, but it was a mix of comedy, pathos, drama, entertainment and almost every Genre except Historical and Mythological films, perhaps.

Film Sabyasachi-1948 was also based on Bangla novel “Pather Dabi”, by Sharat Chandra Chatterjee. The novel was initially serialised in the Bangla magazine “Bangbani” and then published in 1926. However after initial 5ooo copies were sold out in a week’s time, the British Government banned the novel on 4-1-1927. The novel Pather Dabi (The right of Path/ Demands of the road) was about a secret society whose goal is to free India from British rule.

The leader of this secret group is Sabyasachi Malick. He is highly educated, having studied Medicine, Engineering and Law from the Universities of UK and USA. He is tall and so strong that he created records of swimming the flooded rivers in torrential rains and crossing the entire Himalaya on foot in record time. He punishes the rich and helps the poor. In short he is The Superman ! He knows several languages and is an expert in Makeup too. Apurba (Paresh Bannerjee) is a weak member of this team and he becomes a Police informer. Sumitra (Meera Mishra) and Bharathi(Sandhya Rani) are the 2 women in this group who have faced several problems in their personal lives.

The Indian Express, in its review of the film says, ” the film story touches upon issues of Untouchability, Orthodoxy and Faiths. It deals with bRich-Poor divide and status of women in the then Bangla society. It criticises British Policies and India’s inherent customs of Religion and social structure.” Sabyasachi was Bengal’s first Superman of Bangla Fiction, according to the Indian Express.

The film was made in Bangla and Hindi versions. The Bangla version was directed by Bibhuti Laha. The Hindi version was directed by ” Agradoot’, who also directed the film Babla-53 later in Hindi. The film was released on 6-11-48. The cast of the Hindi version was Meera Mishra, Tulsi, Anup, Paresh Banerjee, Sandhyarani,Savitri Devi,Uma, Sunder, Bipin Gupta and many others. Songs were written by Zahir Hussain and music was composed by Robin Chatterjee.

Robin Chatterjee. He was born on 8-1-1914, at Calcutta. His name is not too well known to Hindi film lovers, though he was very famous in Bengal (as Robin Chatopadhyaya), where he composed several NFS and film songs. For many years he assisted Anupam Ghatak,MD. He even sang in the chorus for New Theatre’s film Adhikar-1938. However he was not so successful in Hindi films.

His first Hindi film was Rajlakshmi-1945, wherein he gave the first opportunity to Talat Mahmood to sing a Hindi film song. Till then he was singing Bangla NFS and film songs with the name Tapan kumar. His next film was Tum aur main-1946 which had very good songs by kanan Devi. Then came Voh Dono-1947 and here Sandhya Mukherjee gave good songs. Robin Chatterjee gave music to 14 Hindi films, namely – Rajlakshmi-45, Tum aur main-46, Voh Dono-47, Sabyasachi-48,Ratnadeep-51, Pehli Shadi-53, Firdaus-53, Shobha-54, Majboori-54, Africa-54, Dhake ki malmal-56, Miss Toofan mail-58, Police Station-59 and Chimney ka Dhuvan-1973…this was a much delayed film. He also gave music to a Bhojpuri film- Saiya se kar le milanwa-1966.

Robin Chatterjee died on 2-4-1976 at Bombay at the age of just 61 years.

The story of film’s heroine Meera Mishra is strange. She entered Hindi films with Bombay Talkies film Milan-46. Meera Mishra’s joining the films generated a lot of interest and excitement because she was the wife of an I.P.S. Officer. Meera reportedly answered an advertisement of The Bombay Talkies in newspapers and was called for an interview and was selected readily. Two films, bilingual , Naukadubi (Bengali) and Milan (Hindi) were produced by Bombay Talkies and Meera was chosen to play Kamala in both versions.

The Bengali film Naukadubi had Abhi Bhattacharya playing Ramesh, Meera Sarkar as Hemnalini and Pahari Sanyal as Akshay Babu. The Hindi version Milan had Dilip Kumar as Ramesh and Meera therefore had Dilip Kumar as her first leading man. The Hindi version had Ranjana playing Hemnalini while it was Pahari Sanyal again as Akshay Babu in Milan. The film was directed by Nitin Bose and Anil Biswas was the music director. Parul Ghosh lent her voice in both the versions and here in Noukadubi she had some five Tagore songs, her only Bengali songs.

Both Naukadubi and Milan did well and the initial plan of Meera was to retire after this one film. However, her I.P.S. husband Kripa Sindhu Mishra was killed in action during Delhi riots and Meera decided to carry on with her film career. She had a son Jishnu from the Late K P Mishra. Her other films included Abhijatya (1949), Eki Gramer Chhele (1950), Abarta (1950), Sandhya Belar Rupkatha (1950), Sabyasachi (Hindi-1948)-based on Sarat Chandra Chatterjee’s Pather dabi. She played the role of Sumitra, Bishnupriya (1949). Her other Hindi films included Ghar ki Numaish-49,Chhore-50,Kashmir Hamara hai-50, Azadi ke baad-51, Chamakee-52, Chhoti Maa-52.

She quit films early and settled into married life again. Her husband was Mr Ranjit Gupta, Chief secretary to the Government of West Bengal.

Meera Mishra was born in Kanpur and died in Calcutta somewhere in 2007.

Today’s song is sung by Sandhya Mukherjee. She began her career in Mumbai singing Hindi songs, starting with a song in the film Sabyasachi-1948. Her first playback song was in the film Tarana in 1951. She sang, as a playback singer, 36 songs in 19 Hindi films. Though she sang several songs in 7 films in Hindi, her name became famous only after she sang a duet ” gupchup gupchup pyar karen” with Hemant Kumar in the film Sazaa-1951. Her last Hindi film song was in the film Chimni ka dhuan-73. She decided to come back to and settle in her home city Kolkata in 1952 due to personal reasons.

Blog Day :

4991 Post No. : 16886

One can easily get philosophical too, besides the celebratory aspect. So okay, one more year, one more Holi celebration, one more set of songs posted. . .  And the wheel of life continues to roll. . .

Into the fourteenth year of continuous daily publication, since July 2008. And we have gone past on the way, fourteen Holi celebrations. In the earlier post today, Peevesie’s Mom ji has written that we have 66 Holi songs already posted here. She refers to one of my earlier posts, in which I have written that the Hindi cinema has an intense liking for this festival. And that we still have quite a number of Holi celebration songs that are awaiting discovery out there, and also, waiting to take their place on this blog.

As I check on the Geet Kosh, I am able to identify three Holi songs in 1932, almost immediately.  There is a film by the name ‘Raas Vilaas’ from this year. The song list of this film includes the following two song titles, which are clearly Holi songs. The first one is “Ab To Ghanshyaam Mache Holi, Ab To Sukhdhaam Mache Holi”. The second one from the same film is “Rang Rangee Main Ab Rang Na Daalo”.

In the same year, there is a film by the name ‘Zaalim Jawaani’ that has a song with the title “Biraj Dhoom Machaayo Kaanha”. Like wise, I am sure there are going to be many more songs for this celebration, where the song title may not immediately lend itself for identification. Ah but. . . how longingly one wishes we had all the songs available with us.

A similar search today has led to me to this very rare song from the 1943 film ‘Zabaan’. The rarity can be measured by the fact that this song is not yet available anywhere on line. I am able to locate it in my collection, and have uploaded it today. In all likelihood, this is the first time this song has been brought online.

It is a very attractive composition. Music is from the mind of C Ramchandra and the singing voices are of Ishwar Lal and Kaushalya, supported by chorus. The lyrics of this song are written by Ratan Piya. I was wondering whether this is a new songwriter for the blog. But no, this poet has written a few songs for the film ‘Shakuntala’, also from 1943, and some of those songs are already showcased here. As I checked the Geet Kosh, I find this name appear only for three films, these two fillms from 1943 and one from 1944 (‘Maali’). After that we do not hear from this poet.

Although quite late in the day, but I would still prompt the readers to listen to this wonderful melody. And maybe not too late either. The astrological computations of the Indian system, being based on the lunar cycle does not exactly synchronize with the standard calendars that are based on solar cycles. The full moon day started around mid day yesterday, and continued well almost up to 2 pm today. And the day that we traditionally called ‘dhulendi’, which is the day of playing Holi with colors and water, continues till tomorrow. And so, although the official holiday for Holi this year has been listed for today, as the astrological charts of the Indian system, ‘dhulendi’ is tomorrow. Now figure this out as well as we can.

Early rather than late, or may be later rather than earlier – based on which system you would prefer, here is wishing all readers and friends, a very auspicious, colorful and happy Holi.

Listen to this newly available old melody, and enjoy.

yaad preetam ki mann mein jagaai re

ghere na koi tujhe baanka chhabeela
ghere na koi tujhe baanka chhabeela
kaan(?) bahuton ne tujh pe lagaai re

aai aai re
rangeeli holi aai re
aai aai re
rangeeli holi aai re
rangeeli holi aai re. . .
ho aai re
