Today’s song is from the film Dost-54. There were films made with this title in 1944, 1954,1974,1989 and 1990. There were 17 films with the word Dost in their titles. Film Dost had 7 songs. 6 songs are already discussed here, but one song was not available for a long time. Now that is available and today’s song will qualify the film to become YIPPEED !

This is a Male-Male duet, sung by S.Balbir and S.Kapoor. Balbir is a known singer, but I do not know anything about this S Kapoor. He also acted in this film. The cast of the film was Usha Kiran, Suresh, Majnu, Randhir, Uma Dutt, Kammo, Mohana, S Kapoor, S Nazir and others. Actually actor Om prakash is also acting in this film. The film poster shows his name as well as photo. However, HFGK does not show his name in the cast. Such instances are not uncommon. Even in the film “1857” of 1946, the hero was Surendra, but his name was missing from the cast. Surendra had also sung one solo and one duet in the film.

Of course, the task of compiling HFGK was a mammoth one, so such small errors were seen sometimes. I find that only the HFGK volume II covering the 40’s decade has such instances and also in this volume, the cast names of films are few, giving a feeling that it is an incomplete cast detail. In all other volumes the cast is given almost fully. But these matters are understandable. The 40’s decade was a highly disturbed one. What with the second world war, independence, migration of artistes and the Partition. No wonder, material from this decade must have been difficult to gather.

Majnu was one of the actors in the cast. Majnu was not his real name. His real name was Harold Lewis-a Punjabi Christian. He was a close friend of producer Director Roop K Shorey. Shorey made a film “Majnu-1935″ and Harold was the Hero. The film was a Parody of the Laila – Majnu story. There were many fighting scenes in it and in one scene, Majnu is tied up to Railway Tracks. This film became very popular and the people started calling him majnu. He too liked it and continued with this name for life. In Hindi films, this is the only case where the actor is permanently named after his first role.

In the South film industry, I know of at least two Prominent actors, who were named forever, based on their first role or the company they worked for. First was actor Villupuram Chinnaiah Manrayar Ganesamoorthy, who started his career by acting in stage dramas. His first drama ” Shivaji kanda Hindu Rajyam”, featuring him in the role of Shivaji, became a Hit and so popular that the great social reformer E V Ramsamy conferred on him the name ” Sivaji “. He became SIVAJI GANESAN.

The second case was that of actor Ganapati Subramanian Sarma. He was a graduate in those early days of cinema. He joined Gemini Studiosas a Production Executive and from here he did a small role in Gemini’s film ” Miss Malini”-1947. Since there was already another ganesan in south films, this actor was called GEMINI GANESAN, as he was working in Gemini’s film.

Coming back to Majnu – MAJNU-Harold Lewis was a Punjabi Christian. He was born on 2-11-1913. He was the childhood friend of Roop K.Shorey. When Shorey wanted to make his second film,he chose Harold as a Hero.The film was MAJNU-1935,which was a satirical spoof on the old Laila-Majnu story.There were many stunts and in one scene Majnu is tied up on railway track by the villain.The film became a hit and Harold was renamed MANJU for his film career.

He appeared in almost all of Shorey’s films.He was also doing films with other producers.In 1942 he did a double role in Nishani and in 1943 he directed his first film Paapi. Shorey also gave him a film Badnami-1946 for direction and it was here that Majnu met I.S.Johar who wrote the story and Dialogues of Badnami.

Majnu paired with I.S.Johar in EK THI LADKI-1949,the debut film of Johar. Later they made a comedy pair in 10 films, including the hit film HUM SAB CHOR HAIN-1956. His last film with Johar was Akalmand-66.

Majnu acted in 77 films. His first film was Majnu-35 and his much delayed and released last film was Shri Krishna Bhakti-73.
Majnu directed 8 films including,Paapi-43, Badnami-46, Son of Alibaba-55, Tatar ka chor-55, Malika-56, Basre ki Hoor-56, Baghi sardar-56, and his last film – Chandu-58.

Harold Lewis aka Majnu died on 26-3-1974.

The music director of the film Dost-54 was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj Behl, in my opinion,is one of those composers in the film world, who composed lots of melodious songs. Unfortunately, he was also one of those composers who never got Big banners to work for. He and his brother, Gulshan Behl founded N.C.Films, on their father’s name-Nihal Chand- and produced B and C grade movies to which Hansraj gave his music. Hansraj was known as Master ji, in the industry. Only two people were known as Master ji…one was Ghulam Haider and the other was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj usually worked alone and rarely used any assistant while giving music.

Hansraj is remembered for giving initial playback singing breaks to Asha Bhonsle and Madhubala Jhaveri. He also gave a chance to his own friend Verma Malik-Lyricist. Malik used to live with him initially, in Bombay. He composed music for 62 films from Pujari-46 to Badmashon ka Badmash-79. One film “Insaaf ka Khoon” was released after his death,in 1988.

Hansraj Behl is one of the music directors who became successful in the post independence era. He composed music for not only Hindi films but also for Punjabi films. Hansraj was born on 19 November 1916 in Punjab. He got his basic education in music from Pt. Chunnilal. Then he opened his music school in Lahore and he had some non-film records released under the label of HMV. In 1944 Hansraj came to Bombay to try his luck in the Hindi film industry as a music director.

After one year of struggle he got his first film Pujari, made by Ardeshir Irani, in 1946. He got films like Gwaalan and Phulwaari in the same year, but all these films could not do well at the box office. Behl tasted success in 1947 with the release of Lakhon Mein Ek and Chheen Le Aazadi. ‘Moti Chugne Gayi Re Hansi..’ sung by Shamshad Begum and Mukesh from the film Chheen Le Aazadi became very popular. In 1948 he came up with four films – Chunariya, Mitti Ke Khilone, Pardesi Mehmaan and Satya Narayan, of which Chunariya’s music was a hit especially the song ‘Dil-e-Nashaad Ko Jeene Ki Hasrat Ho Gayi..’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song which placed him among high class music directors was ‘Sab Kuchh Lutaya Hamne Aakar Teri Gali Me..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and written by Mulk Raj Bhaakri.

In the year 1949, he came out with Chakori, Raat Ki Raani, Zevraat and few more films. Lata sang one of her favourite songs, ‘Haye Chanda Gaye Pardes Chakori Yahan Ro Ro Mare..’ in Chakori, which became very popular and it helped Hansraj to gain popularity among music lovers. ‘Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi in Raat Ki Raani was a nationwide hit.

In 1950-51 he gave many hit songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Suraiyya. Songs of Kisi Ki Yaad became very popular soon after the release of the film. ‘Koi Mujhko Na Bulaye..’ and ‘Tadapta Chhod Kar Mujhko Kahaan Tum Reh Gaye..’ both sung by Geeta Dutt and ‘O Jaane Wale Ye Kya Kiya..’ by Mohammed Rafi gained immense popularity. In 1952 he introduced Madhubala Jhaveri as a playback singer in Apni Izzat and Jaggu. Madhubala sang ‘Dil Mere Tera Diwaana..’ with Talat Mehmood and ‘Meethi Meethi Loriyaan Main Dheere Dheere Gaoon..’ (both Apni Izzat) featured her solo voice. In 1954, he again came out with musical films like Dost and Khaiber. ‘Aaye Bhi Akela Jaye Bhi Akela..’ from Dost (1954) sung by Talat Mehmood was among one of his memorable compositions.

He continued to give his best in films like Rajdhani, Milan, Miss Bombay, Changez Khan and Saawan. Songs like ‘Bhool Ja Sapne Suhane..’ from Rajdhani (1956), ‘Mohabbat Zinda rehti Hai..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘ Jab Raat Nahi Katti..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘Zindagi Bhar Gham Judaai Ka..’ from Miss Bombay (1957), ‘Haseen Ho Khuda To Nahi..’ from Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh (1960), ‘Bheega Bheega Pyar Ka Sama..’ from Saawan (1959) and ‘Tujhko Dhoondhu To Dhoondhu Kahaan..’ from Milan (1959) crossed all the barriers of success and Hansraj Behl’s name was on the lips of every music lover.

After all these successful films he continued to give music till 1969 but failed to give any hit because his later films were either stunts or fantasy films with little scope for having good music. His last hit song was an all time great creation ‘Jahan Daal Daal Pe Sone Ki Chidiya Karti Hai Basera..’ which was sung by Mohammed Rafi for the film Sikandar-e-Azam in 1965.

Hansraj Behl died of Cancer in Bombay on 20-5-1984.

With today’s song, all the eight songs of the film Dost-54 get covered and the movie gets YIPPEED in the blog

Lyrics

Hum phiren kanwaare Rab ji

dekha ajab tamaasha
koi na poochhe paani kisi ko
beshaq mare pyaasa
koi na poochhe paani kisi ko
beshaq mare pyaasa
o rab jee beshaq mare pyaasa
isi liye main dikhe hain
lemon sode saare
qurbaan tumhaare
rab jee
hum phiren kunwaare

sare aam phirte hain yahaan par
mard aurat ke jode
sare aam phirte hain yahaan par
mard aurat ke jode
dekh ke in jodon ko
mere dil par paden hathauden
dekh ke in jodon ko
mere dil par paden hathauden
o rab jee

chalte phirte din guzren
footpath pe kati raat
o neeli chhatri waale
ab bigad gayi sab baat
main to bhola bhaala hoon
o main to bhola bhaala hoon
tu meri laaj bachaa le
ya to ik se do kar de
ya apne paas bulaa le
apne paas bulaa le
o rab jee
apne paas bulaa le
gaya waqt nahin aayegaa
kuchh soch le mere baare
kuchh soch le mere baare
sun jag ke ke pyaare
rab jee
ham phiren kanwaare
is duniya mein bhookhe nange
jiyen kare sahaare
kya karen bechaare
rab jee
ham phiren kanwaare

Today’s song is a comedy song from a Costume/Action film “Jungle ka Jawahar”-52. The film was a production from Basant Pictures, owned by producer/Director Homi Wadia. In 1942, brothers JBH Wadia and Homi Wadia separated from each other on a very important point. The elder brother JBH Wadia was of the opinion that the life of the action-stunt films is a short one. He firmly believed that the market for action films will dry up within the next 10-15 years, hence the company should change over to Social films.

The younger brother Homi Wadia differed and wanted to continue with stunt films. He separated and established his own Basant Pictures. Most stunt actors joined his group – especially Fearless Nadia. Besides the Human artistes, Homi Wadia also replaced Animals used in stunt films. In Wadia films there was a Horse named ‘Punjab ka Beta’, a dog named ‘Tiger’, and a Motor car called ‘Rolls Royce ki Beti’. Basant Pictures brought a Horse named ‘Rajput’, dog called ‘Moti’, and a Motor Car called ‘Austin ki Bachhi’. In addition they also acquired a Motorcycle named ‘Runnio’.

The history of stunt action films is as old as the Silent film history. Silent films were essentially a Visual medium, as there was no sound. What could be achieved by dialogues had to be conveyed only with the visuals, hence there was not much scope for emotional films. In the initial stages of silent films, the audience was mainly of the middle and lower class of the society. Impressing and attracting them was easy with action films. That’s how the majority of silent films consisted of action or stunt scenes.

After the advent of Talkie films, the trend of stunt films continued and also became money spinners. Those days stunt films did not need any well known or famous actors or beautiful heroines. These films were made with minimum budgets. Master Bhagwan used to make a stunt film in just 60 to 70 thousand Rupees, covering all expenses. The Wadia, Mohan, Imperial or Ranjit action films cost a little more as they were more elaborate with some story and known actors.

There were specialist actors like Baburao Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Fearless Nadia, Prakash, Boman Shroff, Billimoria brothers, John Cawas and few others who were fixed stars of stunt films. In those days “SPL FX” techniques were not there and all the stunts were actually done by the actors themselves.

Veeru Devgan – yesteryear Fight Master, has written an article on “Stunts and Actions” in the “Encyclopedia of Hindi Cinema”. He says in it,

“It was from film Aan-52 that professionals were employed for the first time. Azeembhai handled the Horses and Douglas took care of the fights and fencing….
“Evolution of action hero began with “Phool aur Pathar”-66, when Dharmendra bared his chest for the first time….
“Stunts in Hindi cinema started taking centre stage in the late 60s and early 70s…..
“What is creditable is that most of today’s actors are ready to do all the action scenes themselves “.

These days, no film is complete without “SPL FX”. What we miss now is the Human involvement in film stunts !

The cast of today’s film was Fearless Nadia, John Cawas, Goldstein, Dalpat, Leela kumari, Rajani, Shyamsundar, Raja Sandow etc. This film is remarkable for 2 reasons. First is – for its Music Director, Madholal Damodar Master, this was his last film as MD. He retired from films, but excelled in another field with International fame, after retirement. More of it later in this post.

Secondly, one of the names in the film cast today was Raja Sandow. He indeed was in the film and film credits, though he had died on 25-11-1943 only ! Surprised ? Not only this film, but a total of 5 Hindi films and over a dozen Tamil films featured Raja Sandow in their films till 1960 ! This is because this legend of stunt films was so popular that his film shots were used again in different films for over a decade as a member of film cast. This must be unique in the world.

Raja Sandow (born P. K. Nagalingam) was an Indian film actor, film director and producer. He began his career as an actor in silent films and later became a prominent actor and director in Tamil and Hindi films of the 1930s. He is considered to be one of the pioneers of early Indian cinema.

Raja Sandow was born in Pudukottai, Tamil Nadu. He was trained as a gymnast and started his film career as a stunt actor in S.N. Patankar’s National Film Company at Bombay. He was given the name “Raja Sandow” because of his physique (after strongman Eugen Sandow). His first lead role was in Patankar’s Bhaktha Bhodhana (1922), for which he was paid Rs. 101 as salary. A passionate gymnast, he started his career as a stunt actor in S.N. Patankar’s National Film (1922). Top star at Kohinoor and its associate LAxmi Pics. (1922-8) under Manilal Joshi (Mojili Mumbai), R.S. Choudhury and Homi Master. Achieved fame when he formed a trio with director Chandulal Shah and heroine Gohar starting Jagdish Film with them (1928) and its successor, Ranjit Film (1929-36). Sandow’s star image in reformist melodramas, playing complex psychological characters opposite Gohar, was launched with Gunsundari and extended in several classic ‘negative’ roles in Shah-Gohar sound films, e.g. Desh Dasi, Prabhu Ka Pyara and Barrister’s Wife. Other noted roles include Indira MA where he plays Kishore.

He became famous by starring in silent films like Veer Bhemsen (1923), The Telephone Girl (1926). After acting in a few silent films he also worked as a director in Ranjit Studios for a monthly salary. His first film as director was Sneh Jyoti (1928).
Returning to Tamil Nadu, he directed and acted in a number of silent films for R. Padmanaban’s Associate Film Company. Many of his silent films had reformist social themes like Peyum pennum (1930), Nandhanar (1930), Anadhai Penn (1931), Pride of Hindustan (1931) and sathi usha sundari (1931). After talking films were introduced with Alam Ara in 1931, he went back to Bombay and starred in many Hindi and Tamil talkies. He was often paired with the actresses Gohar and Sulochana (Ruby Myers). Between 1932–35, he acted in many socially themed Hindi films like Shyam sundar (1932), Devaki (1934) and Indira MA (1935). In 1935, he was commissioned to direct his first Tamil film Menaka and returned to Madras. He continued directing and acting in films till his death in 1943. Vasantha Sena(1936), Chalak Chor (1936), Chandrakanta (1936), Vishnuleela (1938), Thiruneelakantar (1939) and Choodamani (1941) were some of the films he directed and starred in during that period. The last film he worked in was Sivakavi (1943). Sandow suffered a heart attack and died at Coimbatore on 25 November 1943. He was survived by his wife Leelabai and one Son.

As far as films are concerned, he acted in 58 Silent films, 16 Hindi Talkie films and also directed 2 Hindi Talkie films.

Sandow was the first Tamil film director to adopt the practice of using names of actors in film titles. He was the first to introduce intimate kissing scenes and dancers in revealing costumes to the then conservative Tamil film industry. He was also the first director and producer to move Tamil cinema from remaking mythological stories and into making social themed films. He even advertised his films as “Don’t miss to see your own picture”. Sandow was also the first director to use Tamil literary works for film by directing Anadhai penn in 1931 based on Vai. Mu. Kothainayagi Ammal’s novel of the same name.

Writing about Sandow, film historian Theodore Baskaran says: “As a director, actor, scriptwriter and producer, his contribution to Tamil cinema is significant. Many of the stars of the Forties and Fifties have worked with him. He was very competent at coaching actors and maintained complete control over his films. He was a martinet on the sets and was often compared to a ringmaster in a circus. In his films, the emphasis shifted from songs to the spoken word.”

Film historian Randor Guy has also described him as a tough task master: “Raja Sandow was a tough and no-nonsense guy who would not hesitate to shout at and slap his crew and cast including women! Regretfully there are no such directors these days!.”

The Tamil Nadu Government has instituted an annual award in his name called Raja Sandow memorial Award, given for outstanding services to Tamil Cinema. A Postage stamp had been issued in recognition of his contributions to Indian cinema.

Filmography-Talkie films in Hindi…Pardesi preetam-33, Noor e imaan-33, Toofani Taruni-34, Partha Kumar-34, kashmeera-34, Indira M.A.-34, Gunsundari-34, Ratan Manjiri-35, Raat ki rani-35, Desh Dasi-35, College girl-35, Barrister’s wife-35, Prabhu ka pyara-36, Matlabi Duniya-36, Dil ka Daku-36 and Chalaak Chor-36. He directed Raat ki rani-35 and Chalaak Chor-36.

An extraordinary point. Raja Sandow was so popular during the Silent era and early Talkie period, that even after his death in 1943 at Coimbatore, his film shots and leftover films were used in 5 Hindi films till 1953-that is till 10 years after his death. Even his name appeared in the film cast and credits !. I feel this is an exclusive honour, which I have never heard in case of any other actor. The films using his shots in them were Dhoomketu-49, Alladin and Wonderful lamp-52, Jungle ka Jawahar-52, Nav Durga-53 and Husn ka chor-53. This information is given in The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema.

(Thanks for information from wiki, The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, Atit ke sitare by Nand kishore, muVyz, HFGK and my notes).

The name Madholal Master must be unknown to the newer crop of Music lovers, because he retired from film music in 1952- much before most readers were even born. The story of Madhulal Master is as strange as his death. On the morning of 19th June 1990, The Times of India, Bombay flashed a news…” The old time Music Director and a Director of Indian Institute of Puppetry, shri Madholal Damodar Master is found murdered in his Shivaji Park home.”

Born on 21-6-1903, Madholal joined the film industry to become a Comedian, but he was first made a sound recordist assistant, then an assistant MD for two films and finally independent MD for Krishna Tone Film Company for their film, ‘ Navchetan’-32. In the next 21 years he gave music to 34 Hindi films, few Gujarati films and some documentaries, composing 267 Hindi songs. Unable to cope up with the changed pattern of Music and public taste, he retired from this profession after his last film- Jungle ka Jawahir-52. After this he pursued his hobby of Puppet making and soon developed a flourishing business. Internationally well known, he was the only Indian member honoured by the International Puppetiers’ Organization. Very few people know that it was his JOKER PUPPET which was used by Raj Kapoor in his ambitious film MERA NAAM JOKER-1970.

He was invited as a special guest for the release ceremony for the HFGK-Vol I, on 8-10-1988, after Harmandir ji meticulously made special efforts to locate him in Bombay. He was overwhelmed with this gesture. Madholal ji showed a Catalogue to Harmandir ji, in which Madholal ji had recorded information about all songs composed by him with details of every film that he did in his career. Harmandir ji was wonder struck with his systematic records. In the ceremony, senior artistes like Naushad, Sitara Devi, Rajkumari ji etc all touched his feet with respect. He regaled the audience with his humorous talk for an hour. He had spent 38 years before this in anonymity. It is very sad that his life ended in such a tragic way. ( His murderer was never found out, nor was the motive known and the case file was closed.)

Here is today’s duet from the film “Jungle ka Jawahar”-52. It is shot on Rajni and actor singer Shyamsundar. Enjoy….

Today’s song is from the film Baraati-54. This is a comedy song sung by Chitalkar and the MD is Roshan. The director was J.K.Nanda and the cast was Chand Usmani, Peace Kanwal,Agha, Omprakash, Shyam Kumar, Leela Mishra, Johnny Walker, Rajan Haksar, Kathana and many others.

The director J.K. Nanda aka Jai Kishen Nanda was born in 1904, in Bham, Punjab. He was a director, story writer and screenwriter. In spite of all these qualities and having got good films to direct, Nanda could not have a crowded career and directed only 12 films in his career. He wrote screenplay and story of films like Jailor-1938, Singaar-49, Baraat-54 and Mirza Ghalib-54. Films of his direction were Pavitra Ganga-32, Inteqaam-33, Bahen ka Pyar-35, Kudmai-41, Ishara-43, Jhumke-46, Parwana-47, Singaar-49, Chamkee-52, Baraati-54, Dhake ki Malmal-56 and Chaalaak-66.

Out of the total 8 songs of this film, 6 songs are already posted here. Today’s song is the 7th song and the 8th song is also available freely on YT. If one of us discusses that, this film too can be Yippeed.

Though this films’ songs are not composed by C Ramchandra, he has sung this song for Roshan. This is because Chitalkar was very fond of singing. From his childhood his interest was in music and singing. He had actually been trained by qualified singers. He had done singing roles in stage dramas also in his younger age. Even in his first ever film ” Naganand-35″ he had sung 2 songs. Though the actual number of his songs-sung by him- is not available, according to one estimate ,he sang about 150 duets or trios with various singers and about 50 odd solo songs in his career, in 77 films. This number is as good as any second line singer in the industry. Of course Chitalkar sang essentially for his own films. However there were occasions when he was invited by other composers for singing songs.
In those days there was a friendly atmosphere and cordial relations existed among the musical fraternity. All composers, singers, their assistants, lyricists, musicians used to have a lot of fun, get-to-gethers and even outings. One can find many such photographs on the Internet. Though there was keen competition, it was very healthy and not a Cut-Throat type – yet. This clean atmosphere started getting spoiled when some conniving composers (read Shankar Jaikishan, Laxmikant Pyarelal and others of their ilk) started unethical means to grab undeserving awards and films. Honest and True to music composers like S D Burman, C Ramchandra, Madan Mohan, Khayyam etc were thrown aside as they proved to be misfits in this new ” Dog Eat Dog ” culture that crept stealthily, in the film industry !

Anyway, Chitalkar sang in films composed by other Music Directors very selectively and for the sake of specific reasons. He seems to have sung for Mir Sahib (his first Guru), Anil Biswas(his idol),S D Burman, Roshan(his close friend), P.Ramakant, Chic Chocolate(his assistant of many years), Hemant Kumar, Laxmikant Pyarelal,Usha Khanna and Kishore Kumar. He sang for the last three in his last few years.

His songs with other Music Directors may not exceed 15 at the most. Lata sang hardly 2-3 songs as duets with him, for other music directors. Remaining of his duets for other music directors were with other singers.

I feel that he sang only ONE duet with Asha Bhonsle for other Music Directors and that song is from today’s film Baraati-54.

Anyway, today’s song is from Baraati, a film from 1954 and the Music Director was Roshan. At this juncture, Roshan was fighting for survival. After Bawre Nain and Malhar he had not given any Hit film. Few songs from his films had become popular. In 1954, he was summarily removed from the film MEHBOOBA and O P Nayyar took over . There was a huge hue and cry and the matter was taken up by the Association too. One good thing that happened was that during this period Lata stood behind Roshan like a Rock. Their relations were extremely sweet, so much so that when Lata decided to produce a Film “Bhairavi”, she appointed Roshan as its Music Director, much to the amazement of the industry ! The film did not materialise, is another matter. Though Roshan was never a Front row composer in the industry, Lata had recognised his Talent in the musical arena. The sweet relations between Lata and Roshan remained so for a long time-only to become bitter when Roshan gave opportunities to Hemlata in his films.

Chitalkar and Roshan were very good friends. After Chitalkar had retired from films, Roshan used to frequently go to his house in the evenings for drinks. Though Roshan hardly drank anything, Chitalkar more than compensated the deficit!. They used to exchange their sorrows. Roshan’s family life was not a happy one, which added to his nervous nature and took its toll finally.

Initially BARAATI-1954 was given to Chitalkar, who was already doing Yasmeen for Kardar Studios. Since Chitalkar knew that Roshan was without work, he persuaded A R Kardar to give the film to Roshan, thus Roshan became the Music Director for this movie.

When this song of Baraati-54 was to be recorded, Roshan purposely opted for Asha, since he knew that in future Chitalkar would try to bank upon her as a replacement for Lata. However it was not to be, though Chitalkar tried his best in this direction. In the film Amardeep-58, out of 12 songs,Asha was given 7 songs while Lata sang only two. In this connection there is an interesting incident….

In January 1957,there was a singing competition called ” MURPHY-METRO SINGING CONTEST ” held on the open grounds of Mahalaxmi Racecourse, Bombay. The judges were Naushad, Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra, Vasat Desai and Madan Mohan (He was the youngest of them all, which was an honour for him). Aarti Mukherjee and Mahendra Kapoor were the winners in this contest.

At the end of the Contest,when the curtain opened after a break, C Ramchandra suddenly appeared at the Centre-stage, with his full orchestra. (This was NOT announced to the audience earlier, giving them a pleasant surprise.)

Within minutes Asha Bhonsle appeared on the stage and they started a live show under his baton, presenting the First ever ROCK N ROLL number in the annals of Hindi film Music. Asha brought down the whole Mahalaxmi house that evening with her ultra spirited singing of ‘ Mr. John, ya Baba khan ya Lala Roshan daan ” from film BAARISH-57 to be released only next month viz. February 1957.

Such was C Ramchandra’s clout in his heydays that he was considered the heralder of westernised music in Indian films. It is well known that once S D Burman told his son, Pancham “If you want to go western, do it by all means, but first study the songs of C Ramchandra,study the vistas explored by him as a composer !!”

In the film Baraati-54, there were two Heroines – Chand Usmani and Peace Kanwal. For both of them, this was their second movie in their career. Peace Kanwal had a very short career of only 10 films. Then she got married and quit films. Chand Usmani survived for a longer period. She did 109 films. Her last film was a record-delayed film. Started in 1987, the film Yaar meri zindagi finally released in 2008 !

Chand Usmani was one of those actresses, who were good in acting but poor in good luck ! Actresses like Farida Jalal, Tabassum, Shubha Khote, Nazima, Zahira,Zahida, Yashodhara katju and many more fell in this category. These actresses never made upto regular Heroine roles, more than a few films. They had some beginner’s luck but that was the end. They continued in side roles only.

Chand Bibi Khanam Usmani was born on 3-7-1933 in Agra, U.P.and came to limelight by participating in ‘Kardar-Kolynos-Teresa Contest’ in 1949.She felt surprised when she was selected for the contest and overjoyed when selected as the second in the finals.She acted as the female lead of ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ directed by Mahesh Kaul in 1953, opposite Shammi Kapoor.It was the debut film of Shammi Kapoor also.
Chand Usmani became an established actress later on, but she got only secondary roles which she performed always nicely.Gradually she accepted supporting roles,character roles,mother roles etc.She got Filmfare Best Supporting actress award for her portrayal of the character as ‘Champa’ in the 1970 film ‘Pehchan’.
Chand Usmani acted in films of all prominent actors of that period.
In 1957 in the film ‘Naya Daur’ directed by B.R.Chopra, and in which Dilip Kumar-Vyjayantimal were the main pair, Chand Usmani acted as sister of the hero Dilip Kumar’s character ‘Shankar’.
In the historical film ‘Samrat Pritviraj Chauhan’ she acted in the role of Rajkumari.
‘Prem Patra’ was a well noted film directed by Bimal Roy in 1962.A medical College student Arun Kumar Mathur(Shashi Kapoor) has a misunderstanding over a love letter and the consequences were the theme of the film.Sadhna was the heroine and Chand Usmani acted in the supporting role as ‘Sumitra’.

‘Biswajeet,Saira Banu,Jayant,Sajjan,Nazima,Chand Usmani’ etc were the cast of ‘April Fool’ directed by Subodh Mukherjee.This film pointed to the fact that sometimes even practical jokes done for just fun can also lead to unexpected serious problems.

In the super hit film ‘Khilona’ in which Sanjeev Kumar acted in leading role in 1970, Chand Usmani acted as the character Laxmi Singh.
In the film ‘Ujala Hi Ujala'(74), she portrayed mother’s role and acted as mother of Yogita Bali’s character Anuradha.
She presented excellent acting skills along with Shabana Azmi in the 1976 classic movie ‘Kadambari’.
In the 1977 super hit movie of Manmohan Desai ‘Parvarish’ in which Amitabh Bachchan,Shammi Kapoor,Neetu Singh,Shabana Azmi,Vinod Khanna,Amjad Khan,Kader Khan’ etc acted, Chand Usmani acted skilfully as the mother of Neetu and Shabu (Neetu Singh and Shabana Azmi).

She had a well noted character role in another super hit film of Amitabh Bachchan-Neetu Singh pair ‘Yaarana’ in 1981 and yet another film ‘Pukar'(83) in which Amitabh Bachchan and Zeenat Aman were the main pair.

She acted as mother of Suraj (Raj Babbar) in the film ‘Zakhmi Aurat'(88). In all, she acted in 109 films. Her first film was Jeewan Jyoti-53 and the last released film was a record delayed film, Yaar meri zindagi, which started in 1987 and was released in 2008 !

Chand Usmani died on 26-11- 1989 at Mumbai.

As far as Peace Kanwal is concerned, film Kismet-56 was her third and last film as a Heroine. When the film was released, she was pregnant and delivered in 1957. Later she did only side or character roles in films. As such, her tenure in films was not very long. she just did 10 films in all.

She was born on 16th December ( she never told the year of her birth). Her father was a doctor in a Mission Hospital in Agra. He had his private Hospital in Amritsar also.He was related to the Royal families of Jaipur and Jodhpur. He converted to Christianity and changed his old name Indriyas to Andrew Kanwal.

Peace studied in Amritsar, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Delhi. She got admission in Ludhiana Medical college.In the vacations after her first year MBBS, she visited Bombay. Due to persuasion from a newly acquired friend, Peace participated in the ” Kardar Kolynos Talent Contest”. She won the contest (Chand Usmani was second. Shubha khote and Anita Guha too competed in the contest).

A R Kardar signed a 2 year contract with Peace for Kardar Studios. Her debut film was ” Dil E Nadaan ”-53 in which Talat Mehmood also made a Debut as a singer Hero, opposite her. The film was a musical hit. her second film was ” Baraati”-54, opposite Agha. On the sets of this film, she got introduced to Susheel Ruia and soon they got married in 1955. Her name after marriage was Rajashri.

Her third film was Kismat-56, opposite Ranjan. In 1957, she gave birth to her first child and took a break from working. Later she started doing character roles. Her husband was against her working in films. They divorced in 1968. She engaged herself in a lot of social work and painting,her hobby. Her Paintings were in great demand and she held exhibitions of her paintings in India and the USA as well as in Australia.

In 1976, she was introduced to Mr. V.Ramesh, grandson of ex-president V.V.Giri. She married him in 1977. Presently, she stays in Juhu, Mumbai and is into social work and paintings upto her neck. She worked in Dil e Nadaan-53, Baraati-54, Kismat-56, Nai maa-60,Maa Baap-60, Barsaat ki raat-60, Aarti-62, Chambal ki kasam-80, Aasmaan-84, and Woh subah kabhi to aayegi-91 ( adapted from interview on Beetehuedin.blogspot.com, with thanks).

The story of the film Baraat was…..Lajo (Chand Usmani) is a homely girl. She has no father and stays with her widowed mother and brother Sunder (Agha). Her mama-Bishen Das(Omprakash) and Mami (Leela Mishra) also stay in the village. Lajo’s mother depends upon Sunder and Mama Bishen for finding a groom for Lajo. Sunder starts visiting prospective grooms, but at one place, falls in love with a girl and marries her. When he and the new Bride Pilu (Peace Kanwal) come home, they are not allowed to enter unless Sunder finds a suitable match for Lajo. Sunder and Bishen start the mission again and finalise a boy, Atmaram, son of a rich Zamindar, Girdharilal(Shyam Kumar),who is very stingy and money minded. He puts many conditions which are all accepted. The marriage takes place, but Girdharilal makes additional demands and refuses to take the bride into his house. Lajo is devastated and attempts suicide, but Bishen Das saves her. He suggests that Lajo win back her husband by her love. She succeeds in doing this and Atmaram rebels against his father,takes Lajo into his home and the father relents.

Today’s song is from the film Gumashta-51. This was a film by S M Yusuf, the producer and Director, under his own banner Aaina Pictures, Bombay. The music Director was K.Datta aka Datta Korgaonkar. This style of nomenclature especially by Marathi composers was started first by the successful C Ramchandra aka Ramchandra Narhari Chitalkar. Till he changed his name, when he had joined Jayant Desai in 1943, C Ramchandra used to write his name as Ram Chitalkar. Besides these two Music Directors, there were some more like N Dutta or Dutta Naik, SbPurushottam or Purushottam Solankurkar and C Balaji or Balaji Chougule. Off hand, I can remember only these names.

The cast of the film was Nigar Sultana, Wasti, Kuldip Kaur, Baby Tabassum, W M Khan, Husn Banu, Ismail, Nurjehan Sr, Mirza Musharraf etc etc. There were 9 songs in the film written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, Wahid Qureshi and Noor Lucknovi.

The title of the film is Gumasta- spelt differently as Gumastha or Gumashta etc. How many of us really know what the meaning is of the word Gumasta ? The simple meaning is ‘ Agent ‘. Actually, this word came into use when the British East India Company appointed people to collect Protection money from the rich people as a ransom. Thus, they became agents. Later on, this was the name used for anyone who came for collecting money. For example, Rent collector from the house owners, Bill payments from the shop keepers, doctors and other suppliers of goods and services.

Our filmmakers were quite imaginative. They solved their problem of giving titles to their films, by opting for those who did specific jobs, like say Pandit ji, Munimji etc etc. Out of just curiosity a cursory look at the catalogue of film titles, which is otherwise a very prosaic document, I found that films were titled for various Service Providers.

Let us see some Film Titles…. Pandit ji, Munim ji, Gyani ji, Gurudev ji (but not Guruji ? injustice !),Chowkidar, khazanchi, Daak Babu, Band Master, Bank Manager, Barrister, professor, School Master, Minister, Chief Minister, President, Boss, Body Gaurd, CID Inspector, Inspector, Boxer, Chaandaal, Daroga ji, Daaku, Dalal, Detective, Director, Dancer, Doctor, Durban, Fauzi, Film star, Gawaiya, Gramophone singer, Hero, Heroine, Jadugar, Jagirdar, Jasoos, Jailor, Jallad, Joker, Juari, Kavi, Police, Postman, Pujari, Qaidi, Raisaheb,Senapati, Taxi Driver, Typist Girl, Ustaad etc etc.

This information only confirms that our filmmakers are very imaginative and the films made in India are on varied topics. With this kind of angle to look at the film catalogue, hitherto unthought of, provides insight into film making, surely !

The producer director of film Gumasta-51, S M Yusuf was one of the very few people from Indian film industry, who became very successful in Pakistan. After his last film Mehendi-58 in India, he migrated to Pakistan, and remade this film as Saheli-60. It was released on 23-12-1960. It proved to be a great Super Hit film and offers piled up with Yusuf. Later, he also made a remake of Indian film Gumasta-51 as Bahurani-69. It was released on 4-7-1969. This was also successful. Lastly, he remade Indian film Nek Parveen-46, with the same name. It was released on 5-12-1975. This film, however, did Average business. In all he did 13 films in Pakistan. In today’s film Gumasta-51, his own wife Nigar Sultana was the Heroine.

In the cast two names-Wasti and W M Khan- are actors about whom not much is known. I feel the younger generation may not have heard their names even.

Riyasat Ali Wasti was born in 1912, at Naagao in U.P. His father was Citi magistrate, a judge and Dewan of the state. The family was well known in Bundelkhand area. After graduating from Ambala, Wasti did service for 7 years in the PWD of Punjab. He wanted to join films and he became a Hero in New oriental Films, Lahore’s ” Premyatra”-37. His Heroine was Umarazia Begum,later on the wife of Ghulam Haider. He acted in Bombay’s films like Baghban,Industrial India,Pati Patni, Rikshawala,Thokar , Qaidi, Nartaki, Kudmai(Punjabi), Awaz, Nai Duniya, Sharda, Namaste etc. He was a fixture for Kardar films.As a Hero he did many films. In all he had acted in 63 films. He sang 5 songs in 2 films also-Rikshawala-38 and Pati Patni-39.

In the 50s he acted in 11 films. In 60s and 70s he did 20 films. His roles in jab pyar kisi se hota hai and Phir wohi dil laya hoon may be known to many.His last film was kasam-76. Two films produced by him in 1952 and 56 flopped. Last 20 years of his life were spent in penury and anonymity. In his last years,he was often seen begging near liberty cinema in Bombay. He died on 15th April 1996.

Old timer Wasti, who regaled the audiences with his natural acting in Sanjog , Rattan, Pugree made in the forties and many Punjabi & Hindi movies later on, was passing through a bad phase . Nasir Saheb honored him by offering the roles of substance in Dil Deke Dekho,Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai & Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon.

Actually Wazir Mohammed Khan is a name which will be always mentioned, whenever Hindi Talkie films are chronicled. He was the FIRST on screen singer in the first talkie film- Alam Ara-1931. W.M.Khan was a Pathan. His first film was ‘Alam Ara’-31 and his last film was also Aalam Ara-73. He sang a song in the first film and again the same song in the similarly titled film Alam Ara-56. I saw him on the screen for the first time in the film Kabuliwala-61, in which he lip synched the famous song ” Aye mere pyare watan…”. W.M.Khan acted in 105 films. He sang 6 songs in 4 films, namely Alam Ara-31, Sair e paristan-34, Dard e dil-34 and after 22 years he sang his first song again in film Alam Ara-56- though no record was issued for it, even here !

When he acted in the third version of Aalam Ara in 73, he became the first male actor to have worked in 3 films with the same title, from the very first Talkie film. The next and the only other actor to achieve this feat was Ashok Kumar, who acted in Kangan-39, kangan-59 and kangan-72. The only female actress to achieve this feat was Sulochana ( Ruby Meyers) who had acted in Anarkali-28, Anarkali-35 and Anarkali-53.

W.M.Khan died on 14-10-1974, in Bombay.

Today’s song is a comedy duet sung by Shamshad Begum and G M Durrani. Almost all songs of this film are very good.

Remembrance day of Mukri :

Mukri also spelled as Muqri was an Indian film actor, who worked as a comedian in Hindi films. Born as Muhammad Umar Mukri in Alibagh, in Kokani Muslim Family, he started his film career with the film Pratima along with noted film actor Dilip Kumar in 1945. Born of 5th January 1922, he left for heavenly abode on 4th September’2000 at the age of 72 years.

Mukri was seen in many films in character roles and comic role. One movie which comes to mind in ‘Ram aur Shyam”. Here also he featured with Dilip Kumar as his friend.

Today is the 20th death anniversary, so as a tribute, I have found a wonderful comic song picturized on Mukri and Mehmood. The film is ‘Madhavi’(1969), with Laxmikant –Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi as music director and lyricist. The movie had very good songs, I hear. This is the only Rafi song picturized on Mukri which remained to be posted, going by the information is Rafi sahab’s excel sheet. I expect, Mukri may not be as prolific as Mehmood, Johhny Walker or Agha. So there are most likely fewer songs where he actually sings. In this song Manna De is giving playback for Mehmood and Rafi Sahab is singing for Mukri. Now, in the absence of song video, how can I be certain of this ? I have searched on youtube, though the movie “Madhavi” is available, video of only one song is there. All other songs, only audio is available, including the song being posted. Actually, on closer inspection, there are voices of both Mehmood and Mukri are there is the song along with the singers. This is a comic song in real terms, maybe a rip-off on “Padosan” songs.

It was my husband who confirmed the playback for Mehmood and Mukri. As I was noting the lyrics this evening, he asked from where I had found this song from ‘Madhavi”. This is not a known song for me, but may husband knows the songs of this film very well.

The name did ring a bell that I had contributed the lyrics of Lata solo of the two songs posted :

parda hata de mukhda dikha de
saanjh sawere adharon pe mere

My husband also helpfully given the story outline of this costume drama film of Kings, Princes and Princesses. Sanjay Khan is a prince and Deepa, in title role of Madhavi, is a princess. Mehmood and Mukri are all part of the Sanjay Khan’s entourage. This songs is performed on stage. Pran is the Senapati of Sanjay Khan, and he has this dialogue as his ‘takiya kalaam” :

“Shaadi karungaa to sirf madhavi se, warna maut se !”

Today’s song is from the film Actor-51. This was a film by Sarosh Pictures, directed by Ramjibhai Arya. It was produced by H M Kerawala and Bhojani. The music was by 2 MDs- Aziz Hindi and Ibrahim, both small time composers. The 10 songs of the film were written by Nazim Panipati (8 songs) and Shewan Rizvi (2 Songs).

I can understand two composers working together on one song in the film…like Aziz and Ibrahim composed four songs together, in today’s film , but I was surprised to find that even Lyrics are written jointly by two lyricists in some films ( not in today’s film). I have always wondered how two different poets can write one song together. But in Hindi films this was not a rarity. Actually, a few years back, thinking that this phenomenon was worth discussing, I started finding out such songs from the HFGK. After getting names of films where more than one lyricist have jointly written songs, like Chandrtalekha-48, Anyaya-49, Sheesh Mahal-50 Hum Log-51, Buzdil-51, Footpath-53, Chandni Chowk-54, Dhobi Doctor-54, Darbar-55, Miss Bombay-57, Changez Khan-57, pardesi-57…I stopped my search. I realised that this happened in many films and it was not a novelty. I cancelled my idea of discussing this matter in my posts.

Connected to these issues is another problem with stories of films like Actor -51. There are many cases in Hindi films, where remakes of earlier films on the same stories are made. As far as Folklore like Laila Majnu or Shirin Farhad or stories from Ramayan and Mahabharat, one can surely understand, but it is very strange why people want to make films on the same stories.

In some cases, in addition to the same stories, even the film titles are the same. The case of actress Sulochana-Ruby Meyers, is unique. She featured in 7 such films where the Titles and stories were the same. Sulochana acted in Anarkali-28, Anarkali-35 and Anarkali-53. She also acted in Madhuri-28 and Madhuri-32. She also acted in Indira B.A.-29 and Indira M.A.-34. Then there was Gunsundari-27 and Gunsundari-48, with different heroines. All these films had the same Titles and same stories.

Then there are other films which have same stories, but different Titles. Some of such films are Panghat-43 and Chitchor-76, Mala-41 and Amar-54 (MD was Naushad for both films and Jayant did the same role in both films), Grihasthi-48 and Ghar Basa ke dekho-63, Malkin-53 and Biradari-66, Aurat-40 and Mother India-57(Kanhaiyalal did the same role in both films) etc etc. There are 100s of such remakes, but I have yet to see a film which mentions it in their credits. One can not forget films like Do dooni char-68 and Angoor-82. Here the first hindi film Do dooni char was a remake of Bangla film of 1963 ” Bhrantibilas”, which was based on the novel of the same name by Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar who had taken inspiration from Shakespeare’s play ” Comedy of Errors”- which was an adptation of a play by Plautus ” Menaechmi”. Hope this was atleast the original story !

It is a notable coincidence that in 1951, in just One year alone, there were 3 films with almost same story and Bhagwan was the Hero in all 3 films – Actor-51, Daamaad-51 and Albela-51. The basic story was that a poor man, without any help, tries to become a Singer or an Actor and how Luck helps him to become a famous artiste.

Film Daamaad was censored on 8-2-51, film Actor was censored on 1-5-51 and Albela was censored on 13-12-51 and released immediately on next day i.e. 14-12-51. Earlier it was felt by me that film Actor was a failed copy of film Albela. That was before I got the HFGK. Now I know that I was wrong in my assumption. The fact is actually different. Both C Ramchandra and Raj Kapoor were after Bhagwan to start a Social film, instead of making only stunt/action films. After working in these two films, Bhagwan became aware that this story was a winning one, if made into film wisely and if C Ramchandra gives his best music.

Bhagwan started making a draft and writing the story of Albela. Due to his image of a stunt film maker, no main stream Heroine was ready to work in his film and he would not afford their fees also. He thought of Geeta Bali. When he narrated the story to her, smart as she was, she understood its potential to become a Hit film, and she agreed to work in Albela as a Heroine. The rest, as they say, is History !

The director of film Actor-51 was Ramjibhai Arya, who came to Talkie films from silent films. After working as an assistant to few directors he first directed film Hind ke laal-40, then came Manthan-41, Jungle ki Pukar-46, Bhedi Dushman-46, Sher-E-Bengal-47 and his last film was Actor 51.

Ibrahim- one of the MD duo of this film was the brother of MD Ghulam Mohd. He was an excellent Harmonium player. He gave music to only 3 films-two with Aziz Hindi…Utho Jaago-47, Bachelor Husband-50 (with Sarswati Devi) and Actor-51. After this film, Ibrahim joined Naushad as his assistant and was with him for many years. He should not be mistaken with Master Ibrahim- the great Clarinet player. He too gave music to 2 Hindi films, namely Parbat ki Rani-48 and Bigde dil-49. Such names cause ‘Same name Confusion’. Fortunately none of them was a famous one.

In Hindi films, there were two names of Composers – Aziz Khan and Aziz Hindi. Many people thought that these were two separate persons, but the fact is they are the names taken by One composer only. Some time ago, our friend Shri Sadanand ji Kamath had dug out some important and revealing and authentic information from an Internet site of Parvez khan-the International Sitarist, son of Aziz Khan.

” Ustaad Waheed Khan was a well known and respected player of Sitar and Surbahar. His place in the Etawah Gharana was high up. He had 3 sons. Bande Hassan,Hafiz khan and Aziz Khan. Waheed khan was very keen that his sons should continue his profession,earn a name and shine in classical music of Etawah Gharana. He thought working for music in films was below their dignity and a shame. Bande Hassan specialised in vocal music and became a famous qawali exponent. Second son Hafiz khan,after initial training in classical music turned to film singing,without his father’s knowledge. Not only that,he also accepted the pen name of Mastana-awarded by composer Meer Sahib- to hide his identity from his father. The third son Aziz Khan also went the film way,using the name Aziz Hindi sometimes.

Though Aziz Khan did not continue his family profession,he ensured that his son Pervez took the training and became an International Sitarist,settling in the USA. Even son of Pervez- Shakir became a famous Sitarist. he continues the Etawah gharana tradition now. ”

A senior RMIM member Mr. Jayraman reported in 2008 that he had traced, found and met the only son of Hafiz khan Mastana,in Mahim,Mumbai. His name was Zaheer aka Alla Rakha. The son confirmed all the above facts and also that Aziz Khan was Aziz Hindi.

Though this fact was confirmed, books like ‘ Dhunon ki yatra’ (Pankaj Raag) mentioned Aziz Khan and Aziz Hindi as two different persons.As the book was published in 2006, he can not be blamed for this,however. But since it is mentioned in a book , for many readers this wrong information is ‘authentic’ and this is quoted by many in their writings. This is because the findings of Mr. Jayaraman did not get enough publicity widely.

In addition to this revelation,one more sort of Revelation has been made by Aziz Khan’s grandson-Shakir Khan-International Sitar player himself, on his own site http://www.shakirkhan.in . According to him,Aziz Khan gave music to 4 films, along with Khayyam. Those films are Heer Ranjha-48, Parda-49, Beevi-50 and pyar ki Baten-51. As per HFGK, Aziz Khan’s name is mentioned only for Heer Ranjha-48 and Beevi-50,while there is no mention of his name in the other two films. It is also interesting to note that singer Hafeez Khan Mastana was the elder brother of composer Aziz khan. To fulfil his father’s wishes, if not him,at least his son Shahid Parvez should become an Etawah Gharana Sitar expert, Aziz Khan left the film world after 1958 and devoted himself to train and teach his son. Thus Shahid Parvez became an International Sitarist.

Aziz Khan gave music to these film-sometimes as Aziz Hindi and with other composers in few films-
Flying Prince-46, Pandit ji-46, Intezar ke baad-47, Utho Jaago-47, Parivartan-49, Roomal-49, Shoharat-49, Putli-50, Beewi-50, Actor-51, Zamane ki hawa-52,Dhoop Chhaon-54, Danka-54 and Chalta Purja-58.

Today’s song is a comedy song and is sung by Sulochana Kadam and Yeshwant Bhatt. Actually most songs of this film are good songs.

“Betaab”(1952) was produced and directed by Harbans for Susheel Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Naseem, Motilal, Kamal Kumar, Murad, Mirza Musharraf, Tiwari, Kamal, Nazeer Kashmiri, Agha Mirza, Afghan Sandow, S Kamal, Parvati devi, Meera Aarti etc.

“Betaab”(1952) had thirteen songs in it. Two songs have been covered so far.

Here is the third song from the movie. This song is sung by S D Batish. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Batish.

Going by the mukhda “binti karat hoon main tori maa” and going by the fact that it is penned by Bharat Vyas, some people may belieb=ve that it is a bhajan. Not al all. This song is a comedy song where a person is requesting his mother to get him married as soon as possible. He has no demands, no bars, no qualifications in mind for the prospective bride. The most openminded bridegroom ever !

The hilarious lyrics contains words that are considered politically incorrect now a adys but they raised no eyebrows those days. In any case it is a comedy song and it should be treated as such.

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

This movie had eleven songs in it that were distributed between Vinod(7) and Bulo C Rani(4).

Five songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the sixth song from “Wafa”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Talat Mehmood, an unknown voice and chorus. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

Talat Mehmood is known for singing serious songs, but it is a light hearted song by his standards.

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

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

Today’s song is from the 1974 movie ‘Hawas’. This movie is mostly known by its song “Teri Galiyon Mein Na Rakkhenge Kadam“. I remember that this song was frequently played on radio and loud speakers in those years. And I too associate this movie only with this song and had never tried to listen to the other songs of this movie. And yes, I never get to watch this movie until now.

So, when our dear Prakash ji had sent a song from this movie, I was eager to know about the other songs from this movie. So far, two songs (including the song mentioned above) from this movie have been posted on the blog.

‘Hawas’ is directed by Sawan Kumar for ‘Mercury Productions’. He was also the producer, storywriter and the lyricist of this movie. The star cast includes Anil Dhawan, Neetu Singh, Bindu, Vidya Sinha, Shiv Kumar, Fariyal, Pradeep Kumar, Randhawa and Mehmood. Supported by Pichoo Kapoor, Ashok Khanna, Randhir, Asit Sen, Shera, Basant, Neelam, Nelu, Sharmilee, Jugnu, and Coca-cola. Rekha and Vinod Mehra made friendly appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie is written by Sawan Kumar while the screenplay was written by Bimal Dutt. Dialogues were written by Ameen Sayani and editing of this movie was done by YG Chouhan. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.06.1974 with ‘restricted viewing’ certificate.

This movie has five songs sung by Asha Bhonsle (four songs) and Mohd Rafi (one solo song).  Lyrics for all the five songs are written by Sawan Kumar and music is composed by Usha Khanna.

Today, 8th July is the sixty-second birth anniversary of actress Neetu Singh (born on 08th July, 1958). On this occasion here is a song from this movie picturized on her. She is lip-syncing Asha Bhonsle’s voice on the screen and many other female artists and Anil Dhawan can be seen in the picturization of this song.

I had never listened to this song earlier. It’s lovely song and grows upon if we listen to it more and more.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song …

“Jaan e Bahaar”(1979) was produced by Prakash Agrawal and directed by Prakash Kapoor for Nav Chitra Bombay. This movie had Sachin,Sarika, Jagdeep,Paintal, Indrani Mukherjee, Pinchoo Kapoor, Madan Puri, Kanhaiya Lal, Lalita Pawar, Manju Bansal, Rajguru, Bhagwan Dada, Mushtaq merchant, Manhar Desai, Viju Khote, Renu, Ram Avtar, Bhagwan Sinha, Munshi Munnaka, Satyabhan Sinha, Pappu, Rasool, Sheikh, Ramesh Goel, Anu Dhavan, Sangeeta Bhosle, Deependra, Ashok.L.,Sattar Bhai, Manohar, Subhash Ohri, Baijnath, Masterjee, Ashat Kapoor, Vinod Sharma, B.C.Mahor, Sitaram, Aslam Khan, Satya Devi, Khushal, Raaj Anand, Rustum-e-Hind, Suresh Jain, Ashok Bhatia, with friendly appearances by Padma Khanna, Junior Mehmood, Asrani and Dheeraj Kumar.

Today (29 june 2020) is the 18th remembrance day of Gauhar Kanpuri.

I associate the name of Gauhar Kanpuri with the “Zakhmi”(1975) songs Abhi abhi thi dushmani and Jalta hai jiya mera. He also penned some other well known songs such as Jhoomta saawan dekho aaya (Do Khilaadi)(1976) , Allah karam karna Maula tu reham karna (Dada)(1978), Tumhe geeton mein dhaaloongaa (Saawan Ko Aane Do)(1979) etc. He continued to write lyrics for movies well into 1980 and even 1990s, but I remember him mostly for his songs of 1970s mentioned earlier.

As a tribute to Gauhar Kanpuri, here is the first (out of 5 songs) song from “Jaan e Bahaar”(1979). This song is sung by Rafi, Runa Laila and Anand Kumar Chitragupta. Gauhar Kanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri. The song is picturised on Sachin, Sarika, Jagdeep and Kanhaiyalal. Sachin and Jagdeep share Rafi’s voice while Kaanhaiyalal lip syncs in Anand Kumar Chitragupta’s voice.

The picturisation is supposed to be a romantic cum comedy song, but I find the picturisation a big let down. Moviegoers of those days (inlcuding I myself) had wisely kept away from patronising this movie and the movie deservedly flopped at the box office.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Jaan e Bahaar”(1979) makes its debut in the blog.
