Missing Films of 1960s – 72
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s film of the 1960s being introduced is ‘Badmaash’ from 1969.  A very obscure and unfamiliar film, that is known only by its presence in the Geet Kosh. But I was surprised when I checked out the cast. This film belongs to the Sheikh Mukhtar genre. His films may not be blockbusters, but still they are known only because they are Sheikh Mukhtar films. Even so, this film is lesser known in comparison.

It is well known that Sheikh Mukhtar would be churning out films very regularly, but he never established a production house that sustained. Practically all his films are produced under different banners. This film is from the banner of Saras Chitra, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The star cast of this film reads like Sheikh Mukhtar, Helen, Chandrashekhar, Padma, NA Ansari, Vishwa Mehra, Dalda, Shashimala, Satyen Kappu, Jilani, Chandrakala, Surya Kumar, Bhagwan, Rachna, Jayshree, Satish Vyas, Nawab, Jaswant, Ajeet, Abdul Sattar, Nanak, Motu, and Nandini Desai. The regulars are all there – Chandrashekhar, Helen, NA Ansari. And then of course the lesser known regulars. A nearly new name for that era, which appears in this list is Satyen Kappu. We have known him from his character roles in films of 1970s and onward. On checking his filmography, we find that he makes his debut in this film, in all likelihood. I say it this way, because the available information for character artists is not very accurate. This is the earliest film in which his name is listed.

There are only four songs listed in the Geet Kosh, for this film. All the songs are from the pen of Anjaan. The music director is Avinash Vyas. A little surprising to read his name associated with this film. Not that he does not have other B/C grade films in his portfolio. But most of his films are either religious / mythological or fantasy / costume drama. ‘Badmaash’ seems to be his only stunt / crime drama film.

The singing voice is Krishna Kalle. As I have been reviewing the films of second half of 1960s, I find her name appear quite regularly in songs of B/C grade films of that era. This song seems to be a club/bar song, and the performer appears to be drunk herself. Given the cast of actors, it would seem that Helen is the female lead in this film, opposite to Chandrashekhar. It is possible that this song may be performed by her. Another possibility is Padma, a name that I think refers to Padma Khanna, who was also a leading dance item performer of that era. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about the film and its songs.

Rendering by Krishna Kalle is just too good. These types of songs were a monopoly of Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt – actually more of Asha Bhosle in that period of latter part of 1960s. With this song, one can see the potential that Krishna Kalle had to compete with Asha Bhosle.  But well, history is history. Listen and enjoy this definitive performance by her.

 

Song – Utha Palken Mila Nazren  (Badmaash) (1969) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
behakta hai
agar ye dil
bura kya hai behakne de
utha palken
mila nazren

idhar to dekh
kaisi pyaas
machli hai nigaahon mein
idhar to dekh
kaisi pyaas
machli hai nigaahon mein
dhadakte dil ko le le
shokh baahon ki panaahon mein
mohabbat ki
nai khushboo
se ye saansen mehakne de
utha palken
ay
mila nazren

ye maana
saagar o meena ka
dilkash daur hota hai
ye maana
saagar o meena ka
dilkash daur hota hai
magar aankhon se peene ka
mazaa kuchh aur hota hai
haseen palkon
ke saaye mein
naye saagar khanakne de
utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
behakta hai
agar ye dil
bura kya hai behakne de
utha palken
mila nazren

उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें
ये पैमाने छलकने दे
उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें
ये पैमाने छलकने दे
बहकता है
अगर ये दिल
बुरा क्या है बहकने दे
उठा पलकें

इधर तो देख
कैसी प्यास
मचली है निगाहों में
इधर तो देख
कैसी प्यास
मचली है निगाहों में
धड़कते दिल को ले ले
शोख बाहों की पनाहों में
मोहब्बत की
नई खुशबू
से ये सांसें महकने दे
उठा पलकें

मिला नज़रें

ये माना
सागर ओ मीना का
दिलकश दौर होता है
ये माना
सागर ओ मीना का
दिलकश दौर होता है
मगर आँखों से पीने का
मज़ा कुछ और होता है
हसीन पलकों
के साये में
नए सागर खनकने दे
उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें
ये पैमाने छलकने दे
बहकता है
अगर ये दिल
बुरा क्या है बहकने दे
उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें

Missing Films of 1960s – 71
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Although into the seventies now, in terms of songs covered in this series, still there is a lot more to cover. Many more films from the 1960s are still waiting for their debut here on our blog.

Today’s film is ‘Sakhi Lutera’ from 1969. As discussed in some earlier post, the word ‘sakhi‘ here is not the Hindi word with the meaning – a lady friend. The word in the film title is an Urdu word that means – generous, munificent, a person who is liberal in giving to others. As you may be already guessing, and rightly so, this film is about the legendary thief Robin Hood, who steals from the rich and distributes to the poor.

In the annals of Hindi films, there are many films made on this legend. There is ‘Sakhi Lutera’ in 1934, then again in 1955 and then this one in 1969. We also have ‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ in 1965 and then ‘Sakhi Robin’ in 1962. There may be more, I have done a quick search to locate these films.

This film is produced under the banner of Shahnaaz Films, Bombay and is directed by Rustom B Irani. The cast of this film is listed as Azad, Tabassum, Hercules, Chandrakala, Sheikh, Jaani Babu, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Ram Raseela, Habeeb, Sushma, Heeru Anand, Heera Sawant, Malik, Eruch Tarapur, Desai, Pintu, Toto, Haroon, Shafi, Daud, and Muhammad Sandow etc.

Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film. All songs are written by Aziz Ghaazi and the music is composed by BN Bali (aka Baldev Nath Bali). This song is sung by Krishna Kalle. On screen we see a very young Tabassum singing this song and trying to woo Azaad, who plays the role of Robin Hood. One of the films for which the video is available in public domain.

Enjoy this lovely song.

Song – Socha Hai Tum Se Pyaar Karun, Kya Khyaal Hai  (Sakhi Lutera) (1969) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Aziz Ghaazi, MD – BN Bali

Lyrics

socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

dil mein sama ke rehte ho
nazron se door door
ek baar muskura ke idhar
dekh lo huzoor
kadmon pe dil nisaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

tabeer kya ye sach hai
mohabbat ke khwaab ki
jo kuchh bata rahi hain
nigaahen janaab ki
main in ka aitbaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

maine to tum ko chaaha sanam
dil aur jaan se
hasrat yahi hai keh do kabhi
tum bhi zubaan se
kab tak ye intezaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

kaho bhi na. . .

सोचा है तुमसे प्यार करूँ

Missing Films of 1960s – 69
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This is a tried and tested mechanics. Whenever I have tried it, it has always worked like a charm. Maybe one should work on deriving some axiomatic theorem from this experience.

Dig out a film no one has heard about, even yourself. Try and locate some songs of this film. One or more artists associated with the song should be totally unfamiliar and less known. Check out the songs. You will find a song or songs which are so wonderfully attractive, that the mind is dumbfounded – where have these gems been buried, and that so for decades. Just does not settle into some sensible logic.

The year is 1967, not too far faded back in memory. The film is ‘Jungle Ki Hoor’ – an absolute unknown entity. I mean, now living in the age of Geet Kosh, we do see the listings, and know – OK, there is a film of that year with this name. But nothing more than that. And the situation does not change much, since no additional information can be sought out for films of such temper.

But then, you lay hands on some songs of this film. As I have been able to locate and acquire – a couple of songs of this film. Apparently just one record of this film has been traced so far in public domain. I know this film is listed in the homework list of missing films of 1960s. So I pull out the songs, listen to them, and am bowled over.

The song presented today is written by Sajan Bihari – a totally unfamiliar name. As I checked the Geet Kosh, I find this name appear only in one more film – ‘Bahut Door’ – an unreleased film from 1940s. Incidentally, the music director for both these films is BN Bali (aka Baldev Nath Bali). So sometimes in the 1940s, these two artists came together and created some songs. And then after almost two decades, they reunite for another film in 1967. As far as BN Bali is concerned, we encounter his name in some more listings, but Sajan Bihari – that’s it.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of NJ Productions, Bomby and is directed by SM Sheikh. The cast of actors includes Azaad, Indira, Khurshid, Tuntun, Habeeb, Maqbool, Nazeer Kashmiri, Fazal Khan, V Kishore, B Rupa, Noorjahan, Anand (Mamaji), Indian Charlie, Waliul Khan and Sheikh himself. Geet Kosh lists six songs for this film, with two songwriters identified – Madan and Sajan Bihari. Madan is not so much of an unknown entity now. Very active in the decade of 1960s and 1970s, he has almost a hundred songs to his credit listed in the Geet Kosh. And we have seven of his songs already showcased on our blog.

Sajan Bihari, on the other hand, is a mystery. Only three songs listed in the entire Geet Kosh, and the first one to find its place on our blog. I would request the more knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this lyricist. And about this film also, if possible.

The singing voice is Krishna Kalle. A very beautifully rendered song, I am sure you will love it on first hear, as I did. Enjoy.

Song – Aaj Khushi Ka Jaam Le  (Jungle Ki Hoor) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Sajan Bihari, MD – BN Bali

Missing Films of 1960s – 63
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Shamma Jali To Jala Parwaana
Pyaar Bana Afsaana. . .

The film, ‘Pyaar Bana Afsaana’ was eventually never released. However the songs were already recorded and released. This song caught the attention of the listening public, and it did become quite a popular memory in the radio listening days.

Remembering Krishna Kalle – three years ago this day, she passed away at the age of 74.

In 1957, when she was declared the winner of a national level singing award for young talent, she received this award from the hands of the then President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad. More awards and recognitions followed in the subsequent years. In 1965, she was honored as the ‘Golden Voice of India’.

In 1960 she joined the All India Radio in Bombay (now Mumbai). However, within three or four years, she made her debut as a playback singer in the film industry. As per Geet Kosh, her first song came in the film ‘Daanveer Karna’ in 1965.  She continued to be active in both the Hindi and Marathi cinema, and has also sung some songs in Kannada films. Given the situation of the industry, this talented young singer did never make it to the top level of playback singing in the industry. She sang over 200 songs in Hindi films in an active career that spanned from mid 1960s to mid 1980s. Besides, she also has to her credit, about 100 songs in the Marathi film. In addition, there are almost another 100 non-film songs and bhajans recorded by her.

Today’s song is from the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’. This is a Sheikh Mukhtar film that is produced under the banner of Shimla Productions, and is directed by R Thakar. Besides Sheikh Mukhtar, the star cast is led by Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum. The other players in this films are Bhagwan, Madan Puri, Uma Dutt, Neelam, Nandini, Tuntun, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lakshmichaya, Kundan, Dilip Dutt, and Tiwari etc.

The story is a typical variation on the Sheikh Mukhtar tales. Shankar (Sheikh Mukhtar) is on the run from the police, for a crime believes he has committed; but actually he himself is mistaken. He flees from village and comes to Bombay, and becomes part of a gang led by Khan (Uma Dutt). Khan is a involved in criminal activities, but he is a man of his word. Shankar’s sister Kum Kum, also comes to Bombay in search of her brother. Sanjeev Kumar is an upright police officer. By a sequence of events, Kum Kum and Sanjeev Kumar meet at the police station, and he takes her to his home, since she has no place to stay. Love blossoms between them. Madan Puri, an old adversary of Shankar from the village, also comes to Bombay, and also starts working for Khan. Some more predictable events happen and then all is sorted out for a happy ending.

Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, three of which are written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and two by Akhtar Romani. The sixth song does not have a lyricist name mentioned against it. Today’s song is from the pen of Naqsh Lyallpuri. The music direction of this film is by Vedpal.

This is a ‘villain’s den’ song. Kum Kum has reached the adda of Khan. Khan is enamored by her beauty and wants her to dance for him. At first she refuses. He then promises her that no harm whatsoever will come to her and that he takes the responsibility to protect her. Since she has a purpose i.e. to locate her brother, hesitatingly she agrees. And the song follows. The song is delightful and melodious, and a very pleasing listen. When the song ends, Madan Puri makes an entrance. The film is available online, in case you may be curious as to what happens next. 🙂

With this song, the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’ makes a debut on our blog today. Enjoy.

Song – Aankhen Pyaasi Lab Hain Pyaase  (Gunehgaar) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Naqsh Layallpuri, MD – Vedpal

Lyrics

pyaala bhar ke
jo hamne poochha
jee kisko pehle
kahaan se pehle
tamaam mehfil pukaar uthi
ji humko pehle
yahaan se pehle

aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya

masti ka paighaam banin hain
zulfon ki rangeen ghataayen
masti ka paighaam banin hain
zulfon ki rangeen ghataayen
saaz dilon ke chhed rahi hai. . .
paayal ki betaab sadaayen
paayal ki betaab sadaayen
chhed inhin saazon ki dhun par
chhed inhin saazon ki dhun par
naghma naya saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

aaj utha na koi pyaasa
mehfil ki awaaz yahi hai
aaj utha na koi pyaasa
mehfil ki awaaz yahi hai
jaam pe jaam diye ja saaqi
jeene ka andaaz yahi hai
jeene ka andaaz yahi hai
roz kahaan laati hain raaten
roz kahaan laati hain raaten
aisi fizaa saaqia
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lyrics

jaao ji
jaao ji

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lyrics

samaa  khoobsurat hai

ae mehboobi jaan e khoobi

tu kahaan
tu kahaan
samaa  khoobsurat hai
tumhaari zaroorat hai

aaj to mujhko hosh nahin hai
zulf kahin aanchal bhi kahin hai
main bhi haseen hoon
dil bhi haseen hai
ye duniya khwaabon ki zameen hai
ae mehboobi jaan e khoobi
sab kuchh hai
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
samaa  khoobsurat hai
tumhaari zaroorat hai

maujon ka paighaam hai aa ja
jalwa jalwa jaam hain aa ja
rangeen rangeen shaam hai aa ja
tujh se zara sa kaam hai aa ja
ae mehboobi jaan e khoobi
sab kuchh hai
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
samaa  khoobsurat hai
tumhaari zaroorat hai
bahaaron se poochhun main
bahaaron se poochhun main
ae mehboobi jaan e khoobi
sab kuchh hai
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
tu kahaan
samaa  khoobsurat hai

Genius of Jaidev – 40
——————————–
Searching on internet YouTube, I came across this Rafi’s 1969 ‘Sapna’ song for my ‘Genius of Jaidev’ series. According to HFGK this Rafi’s song is also sung by Krishna Kalle with some minor variations in lyrics for the same film. What can be better, as suggested by seniors of ASAD, than presenting two songs in one posting today, to remember Jaidevji, who took permanent ‘nirvaan’ on this day, the 6th January, 28 years ago!

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 18
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Bring up and test this, works every time.  Looking for a good melodious song that will strum the strings of the heart – just pick an obscure film from 1950s or 60s.  If the lyricist and music director and the singer(s) are from the proverbial ‘lesser known’ category, all the better.  Just run through the song list of such a film.  I promise you will find a memory tickler hidden in there, which will make you exclaim – “achhaa, ye gaana is film ka hai”  (“Aha, so this song comes from this film”).  I have tried this many times; always been a success.

Take this film, and this song.  I have wonderful humming memories of this song from the radio listening days.  For all this time, I was unaware of the details.  Searching for songs by Chitragupt, I ran into this a few days ago, and had that ‘Aa Haa’ reaction.  Wow, so this is it.
