On this date ten years back viz on 31 December 2012, seven songs from seven movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

We notice that three movies (out of seven) whose songs were discussed ten years ago on this date (viz on 31 decemberb2012) have since been YIPPEED. One of them in fact was YIPPEED on that date.

That leaves us with four movies that are eligible for blog Ten Year Challenge today. One movie was earlier taken up under Blog Ten Year Challenge. Another movie eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today is “Shri Nagad Narayan”(1955).

This movie was a comedy movie. It was produced by Suraj Narayan Kanav and directed by I S Johar for Kamdhenu Films, Bombay. The movie had Meena(Shorey) , Motilal, Majnu, Badri Prasad, Om Prakash, Murad, Shireen, Baby Naaz, Leela Mishra etc in it.

“Shri Nagad Narayan”(1955) had 11 songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

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

Some words in the lyrics do not make sense. I request our knowledgeable readers to suggest corrections, in any in the lyrics of this song that sounds like a comedy song.

Blog Day :

5278 Post No. : 17292

We have been introducing new movies on the blog at a fair rate. Somehow in this process our other objective of ‘Yippeeee’ing’ the movies closer to their final songs have taken a back seat. With this post we once again resume this activity and start taking such movies to ‘Yippeeee-land’.

One such movie waiting for its final song to be covered on the blog, since Feb’2022 (there might be movies pending before this also), is today’s movie ‘Aag Aur Daag’ of the year ‘1971’.

It has been over fifty years now since this movie was released.

Alphabetically ‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ is the first movie of the decade 1971-1980. It was passed by Censor Board on 20.01.1971.
The first movie 0f ‘1971’, as per date of certification by censor board, is ‘Johar Mehmood In Hongkong’. It was passed by censor board on 04.01.1971.

Both these movies have been represented on the blog, and both are yet to be Yippeeee’ed 😊 We are going to say ‘Yippeeee’ to one today.

‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ was directed by A. Salam for ‘Movie Temple, Bombay’. It was produced by Swarn Singh.

This movie was written by Charandas Shokh. Editing of this movie was done by R.V. Shrikhande.

This movie had six songs (including one two-part song) written by Noor Dewasi (one song) and S.H. Bihari (five songs, including one two-part song).

Music for ‘Aag Aur Daagh-1971’ was composed by N. Dutta.

Following is the list of songs in this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

98th birth anniversary of Mohammed Rafi sahab

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 11

How the human mind works and the vagaries of human memory system, the scientists are still figuring out. I, for one, am very grateful that my memory brings forth to the mind a significant Rafi song to write a post at the most unexpected moment.

Since last few months, things have been very hectic at the domestic front, for no real tangible reason. They just are somewhat crazy, with stress levels running high on the work front too. Family events, travels notwithstanding, I should have written a few more posts this year, if only I could focus. So much so that I was on the verge of advising the HOD that the office needs a “self-help-stress management” “how to make the office atmosphere positive” “How to have healthy work relations with colleagues” sort of workshops/seminar. Not that I am going to do any such thing as advising the HOD, at-least I am trying not to. The thing is, a close friend expressed an opinion, if any such events are organised at the office, this will add to the stress levels of the already stressed-out officers.

I could also suggest some soothing music to be played on the non-existing PA system. There really are many classic music compositions, human civilization has produced. Many of them are having soothing qualities, some have the capacity to amaze the listener, that something like this could be created. There are many amazing and wonderful things, that we human can be grateful for. Sounds of music is one of them. The simplest things in life, which are free are to be valued and be thankful for. I thought the pandemic and tribulations it brought to humans, would make us all better humans, and teach us thankfulness, for many of the blessings which we all take to granted.

Post pandemic, as the world is back to normal, the massive restrictions during 2020 & 2021 are all but forgotten, which seem like a bad dream. Only sometimes I think of those days when work from home was possible, that was one advantage.

I honestly feel, it has had an impact on the evolution of humans. It has had huge psychological impact on young kids and elders. It is to be hoped that kids with the resilience of the young, will get past this bad dream. But the reminders of the bad dream are everywhere around us. The other day, I saw those round circles painted on the floor outside a supermarket. We were made to stand in queue to buy groceries, only a few people allowed inside at a time, to buy essentials for gods sake. If this was not a trial of psychological bondage training imparted to masses, then what was it? No wonder, humans, evolved after the pandemic are more disgruntled than before.

As the scientific community is grappling with the impact on the mental health (which is the new pandemic), lowered immunity in young and old, it is the responsibility and duty of able-minded people in the society to take great care, of their social surroundings, environment and individuals who may need a word or two, of care, of encouragement, of belief, of faith that things do not remain the same, they always change for the better.

No doubt that the research papers and thesis that come out on the impact of COVID – 19 on humanity, will point to the great stress it put on the psychological strength of the world’s populace. For this, the disease is not at fault, but the handling of the crisis, is the culprit. Having said this, I admit that being judgmental in hindsight is easy. But dealing with the aftermath is not going to be easy and it requires all the resilience of humanity.

I read about the voyager 1 & 2 sometime back and about the recordings of sounds to earth which they carried. With great hope I looked for the details of Indian songs in the 90 minutes music record. I found this Hindustani classical song is part of that.

Bhairavi: Jaat Kahan Ho Traditional Kesarbai Kerkar (vocals) with harmonium, Tanpura and tabla accompaniment Recorded in Bombay, April 1953 Hindustani Shastriya Sangeet (Indian classical music) 3:30

Hindustani classical music is an important component of sound of earth in all senses, so its inclusion in the above record is not a surprise. For our part, we have here a hindi film song which is a Hindustani classical song, by Mohammed Rafi Sahab. This is from the film Mrig Trishna(1975), written and composed by Shambhu Sen. This is a soothing, mental massage, critically acclaimed song. I was aware of the song and have heard it many times before today. I have also heard a great fan of Rafi Sahab, singing this song, and he was all praises for this rendition by the maestro. Obviously, he knows a great deal more about classical music than me. I had seen the song many times of TV too. So as soon as he said the mukhda before singing it, I was able to recollect even the filming of the song, and Hema Malini dancing to it. This was a few years ago. But today seeing the song again, I have also remembered reading somewhere, about the location shoot of the song. It is filmed at an actual location of some Haveli or fort is Rajasthan. The original art work and carpet and the carving in the pillars and jharokhas is visible in the hall.

Before starting this post I had checked and could not find the film Mrig Trishna (1975) in the list. But I just thought of checking it again, and now I find that 2 songs from this film are posted and this particular song is posted here.

So here we are, in the 99th year of Rafi Sahab, we are soon going to enter the 100th year of Rafi Sahab. I hope and pray, that we maintain the equilibrium as humanity and take inspiration from the personality of Rafi Sahab and his life’s principles.

Rafi Sahab, keep spreading happiness and peace to the world and beyond, even if the Voyager, has missed out on including your amazing voice. No doubt, as one of the super creations, Rafi sahab has made his contribution to this civilization and increased the ‘shobhaa’ of this ‘sansaar’.

I am posting this funny group song from the film Madhur Milan(1955), which the antithesis of Hindustani classical, which was my original idea for this post. Geeta Dutt and A. R. Ojha are giving company or having fun with Rafi sahab in the song composed by Bulo C. Rani. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Among the legendary associations, Geeta Dutt, is next to only Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan was also part of Madan Mohan’s team for a time. While Bulo C. Rani has composed many sweet renditions by Rafi sahab in early 50’s, some of which I have posted.

So we enjoy this social comic song by this team on this birth anniversary occasion.

Blog Day :

5271 Post No. : 17280

Today’s song is a comedy duet from the film Jhamela-1953.

The song is sung by Chitalkar and Sunder Singh – the comedian. Many of you would be surprised if I tell you that in the beginning of his career, Sunder-the well known comedian was a Hero in many films. Not only this, but also that he was a good singer and he has sung as many as 40 songs in as many as 25 films !

In the world of Hindi cinema, there are many such surprises. Can you believe that the actor Ranjan ( Ramnarayan Venkataraman Sarma) was a highly qualified and educated editor of a Music and Dance Magazine in Madras and that he was selected for a film role by a producer, when he was seen by that Producer, when Ranjan was standing in a bus queue ? Ranjan was a Fencing champion of International Olympic standard.
Can you imagine that another comedian and a character actor Janakidas Mehra had represented India in 3 International sports meets as a Cyclist and an Athlete and that he was the only Indian to win the British Empire games Distinction medal ?
Can you believe that the child actor Shashi kapoor (Sr.) left his prospering film career after doing 21 roles in Hindi films and became a Maths professor in the Western Michigan University and taught for 30 years ?

Well, well,well ! I can write a full article, only on such wonders of film artistes. Like their Glory stories, artistes also had sad stories. Once a shining star in the industry some stars ended their lives in the most pathetic way. Music Director Bulo C Rani immolated himself and when the pain became unbearable, he ran on the road screaming for help and died finally falling on the road .
Singing prodigy Parshuram begged on road daily and died drunk on the road of Bandra. His body was burnt by the Municipality as an unclaimed and unknown person.
Actress and singer Vatsala Kumthekar became mad, lived on the road and one day died as an unknown beggar.
Actress singer Rattanbai and actor Wasti begged near the Haji Ali Darga and opposite Liberty Cinema in Bombay, in their last days.
Lalita Pawar, Nalini Jayawant and Parveen Babi died lonely and their bodies were discovered after 3-4 days, by their neighbours and relatives.

Coming back to Sunder Singh, let us see his short Bio… For a long time,I was searching for information on comedian Sunder. I got hold of a 2 page detailed article on Sunder, but it was in Punjabi- which I could not read or use. I found a small paragraph on Sunder in Sanjit Narvekar ji’s book ” Eena Meena Deeka”. Lastly, I requested Harish Raghuwanshi ji for help. Despite his failing health, he promptly sent me articles in Hindi, English and Gujarati, on Sunder. He is such a helpful person. May God give him a healthy life.
Sunder Singh aka Sunder was born in Sialkot, Punjab on 10th August 1916. His father was working in Madon Theatres, Calcutta. Sunder also started working there. Initially, for a long period,he did Girl’s roles. Once his work was seen by H.S.Rawail (Director in later life). He was quite impressed. Later Rawail started working with R.N.Vaidya as his assistant in direction.Meanwhile Sunder started working in Talkie films. His first film,where he was credited, was ” Na hone wali baat”-38. Before that, Rawail and Vaidya were preparing to make the film Banke Sipahi-37.Rawail recommended Sunder and Vaidya gave him an uncredited small role in that film.

Sunder and Rawail became good friends and started staying in one flat in Calcutta. After a few films here, they both went to Lahore and Sunder got the Hero’s role in the film ” Shukriya”-44. There were 4 Heroines in the film- Ramola, Rooplekha, Manorama and Raksha. Sunder’s role in this film was that of a young man from a village and Ramola was from a City. Sunder’s one song from this film-‘ Nayanon ke teer chala gayee ek shehar ki laundiya’ became very popular all over India, However the song was banned in Punjab due to its lyrics. After this they both came back to Calcutta.

His next film was Albeli-45, in which too there were 4 Heroines- Ramola, Rooplekha, Manorama and Usha. In the 40’s , Sunder acted in many films like Arabian Nights, Baap, Shabri, Chandrashekhar, Ek aurat, Grihalaxmi, Lottery, Samapti, Jhoothi kasme, Savyasachi, Do baaten, Shadi ke baad, Bawra, Khiladi, Nai Bhabhi etc. In Calcutta, Sunder got married to a girl from his community. Rawail left for Bombay. After a few months, Sunder also returned to Bombay.

Rawail was very happy to get him back and gave him roles in almost all of his films. Not only Rawail, but also J.Om Prakash, Mohan Kumar, Lekhraj Bhakri, Manoj kumar etc gave him roles in all their films and he became a busy actor. He was at one time, in great demand. He was quite popular due to his nature.In the decade of 50’s he did 88 films, which increased in the 60s and 70s. In the 80s however films came haltingly.

From singing Hero, he became a Junior artiste( extra), in presence of the new crop of actors. The role of comedians was on decline, as Heroes like Amitabh and others did comedy scenes themselves. His health started troubling him. His last film was probably Bahurani-89. He became ill for a long time and finally died on 5-3-1992. Sunder acted in 436 films. He was a good singer and sang his own songs in early cinemas. In all, Sunder sang 40 songs in 25 films. ( Thanks to Harish Raghuwanshi ji for material for adaptation.)

The Music Director of Jhamela-1953 was C.Ramchandra. He and Bhagawan were very good friends from 1936 onwards, when they had first met. That time CR was working under Music Director Meer Saheb, as a Harmonium player and his assistant and Bhagwan was acting in the films of Harishchandra Rao and Chandra Rao Kadam. They were masters in making stunt and action films. In Minerva Movietone of Sohrab Modi, CR worked under several MDs. First it was Bundu khan, then came Habib Khan. After this came B.S.Hoogan. CR learnt many things from Hoogan, especially how to play Indian ragas on western instruments as well as how to make tunes. After Hoogan came Meer Sahib. During the shooting of the film ‘ Bahadur Kissan’, CR and Bhagwan became friends.

With Bhagwan’s help, CR got 2 Tamil films as a M.D. and then made his Debut with Bhagwan’s film “Sukhi Jeevan” in Hindi as a Music Director ,in 1942. Thus they were thick friends till Jhamela-1953. All those years Bhagwan made stunt films and CR gave music to his films as “Anna Saheb”. Due to his encouragement and persistence, Bhagwan jumped into Social films with the film “Albela ”-1951. The film made history in music and a grand run as a film.Even today, the film draws crowds. This was the first film of bhagwan when CR gave music as “C.Ramchandra ” and not Anna Saheb.

CR described all this in his Marathi autobiography – माझ्या जीवनाची सरगम . This book, published in 1977 was never translated into Hindi or English. I ran a series of ” CR and Lata Songs” on this Blog from 30-1-2013 to 11-2-2013, in which I had translated his Marathi autobiography into English serially in each post.`Seeing this translation, many people suggested that I publish the English translation of the Marathi book. The book was copyrighted by the son and daughter of CR , who are practicing doctors in the USA. I always denied doing this, even though great pressure was put on me.

I believe, two years ago its Hindi version came out and last year the book was published in English, though with a different format and a different Title. I am a great fan of CR, but I feel that his autobiography details his sexepades more than his musical journey. In that context, it is a boring book.

Although Bhagwan’s first Social Film Albela became a great Hit giving him name, fame and money, Bhagwan could never repeat this success ever in his life again. He tried all possible ways, conjuring the same team of actors,Lyricist and MD but success always eluded him. More than anything these attempts drained him of his reputation and riches. He had to sell his 7 cars and 4 bungalows and go back to his old Chawl life in a 2 room house. His age was increasing and he landed up doing small,insignificant roles like an ‘Extra’.

Jhamela-53 also became the cause of an unrepairable rift between Bhagwan and CR. CR also lost the companionship of Lata Mangeshkar and his friend Rajinder krishen within the next few years. This is life in the Film Line !

Today’s song is a comedy and fun song between two friends. Enjoy…..

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 123
————————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this date viz on 3 October 2012, six songs from six movies were covered on the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6939 Chori chori tori aayi hai Radha Ham Hindustani (1960) Movie YIPPEED by now

6944 Ek chhatri aur ham hain do Maan Gaye Ustaad(1981) 3 songs covered out of 7 done

We can see that three movies whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. Fourth song was an NFS. That leaves us with two movies that are eligoible for blog ten year challenge today (3 November 2022).

“Teen Chor”(1973) is one such movie.

“Teen Chor”(1973) was produced by Gordhandas and Ravi Malik and directed by V Dada Mirasee for The Bharat Pictures, Madras. Th movie had Om Prakash, I.S.Johar, Jeevan, Vinod Mehra, Zaheeda, Ranjeet, Ashoo, Sulochana Latkar, Chaman Puri, Manmohan Krishna, Manmohan, Jagadish Raj, Sudesh Kumar etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered so far and that song was covered ten years ago. Now exactly ten years later to the date, here is the second song from “Teen Chor”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi Manna Dey and Mukesh. It is lip synced by m Prakash, Jeevan and I.S.Johar respectively.

Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sonk Omi.

Hullo Atuldom

A very Happy Navaratri to all. The date corresponds to the first day after Amavasya in the month of Ashwin of the sixth month (as per the Solar Bengali calendar) and seventh month (as per the Indian National lunar calendar of the Deccan Plateau) overlapping the months of September and October of the Gregorian calendar. It is the Sharath Navaratri. The period when we worship the Mother Goddess in the form of Durga Lakshmi and Saraswati. Additionally, this is also the time when we have Ram Leela celebrations across the country.

That is why I have chosen a song featuring Ram Leela. We can see Dev Anand, Janakidas, Premnath, Paintal, on stage enacting the Lanka dahan part of the Ramayan. It begins with Seeta maiyya crying under a tree in Ashok Vatika and  Hanuman seeing her from atop a tree. Sita maiyya (who is the actress?) sees Hanuman when he falls from the tree (I don’t know if all Ram Leelas have such comic elements. Remember there was a similar comic Ram Leela in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ‘Naram Garam’). Ravan’s son Meghnad is played by Sharat Saxena. Did anyone recognize the Kumbhkaran? It is the actor who has a Guinness book entry for playing a police inspector maximum number of times. Yes, Jagdish Raj. Then we have two Hema Malini in the audience.

I could only recognize Manna Dey’s voice as the male playback, there is one more male singer. The female voice belongs to Anuradha Paudwal. The song is written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant Pyaarelal are the music directors. Also we can hear Dev Anand’s voice in all the dialogues in between.  All-in-all an entertaining song from the 1976 released Chetan Anand directed ‘Jaaneman’.

The storyline of the film had Dev Anand playing a taxi driver and Hema Malini in the double role of sisters -Santo & Banto. Plus there were Premnath, Ajit, Paintal, Janakidas Sharat Saxena Jagdish Raaj etc. in the cast.

I have read somewhere that it was a movie in the 25th year of Navketan Films. The movie has 6 songs and the blog has 4 of them (one is a three part song).  The last song from this movie was posted in 2016. Today’s song is sort of in the same category as the iconic song from ‘Munim ji’ (1955) – “O Shivji Bihaane Chale Paalki Sajaaye Ke

Born on 26 September, 1923, today is also the 99th birth anniversary of Dev Anand. With this song, we remember him and celebrate his birth anniversary.blog

Editor’s note:-This song is the 200th song picturised on Dev Anand in the blog.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Lehren-1953. It was made by ” New Sai Productions” Bombay. It was a film production company floated by C.Ramchandra, his close friend actor Omprakash and Lata Mangeshkar. They produced Jhanjhar-1953, Leharen-1953 and Duniya gol hai-1955 ( directed by Omprakash himself.) These films were neither successful nor their music became popular.

When the film Jhanjhar-1953 was about to be released, C. Ramchandra and Lata Mangeshkar went to Punjab to attend the release function of the film. In this visit, Lata Mangeshkar spoke to singer Nurjehan in Pakistan, from her hotel room telephone and they decided to meet each other. Accordingly Lata and Nurjehan met on the “No Man’s Land” between the Indo-Pak border. They embraced each other and spent a lot of time together.

Another noteworthy event happened when the film Jhanjhar was in the making. At that time C.Ramchandra, under a loose contract with Filmistan, was also giving music to Filmistan’s ” Anarkali’. Directors in Filmistan knew that he was also making his own film Jhanjhar and they suspected that he may be neglecting music of Anarkali at the cost of Jhanjhar. He was sent a legal notice accusing him of this. However, Jhanjhar released first, flopped and then Anarkali was released. Anarkali music became a superhit and Jhanjhar was nowhere. The legal case was happily dropped and C Ramchandra was also awarded a gift from Filmistan for its music !

Film Lehren-1953 was directed by H. S.Rawail and the 10 songs of the film were written by Rajendra krishna. Rajendra Krishna (6-6-1919 to 23-9-1987. Songs 1671 for 269 films) and C.Ramchandra were very good friends. They came together from C. Ramchandra[‘s film Patanga-1949. Together they worked in 52 films. However, in 1958 this friendship broke up. The story is….in 1958 C.Ramchandra was called to Madras by producer S.S.Vasan of Gemini Films. He was offered the film Raaj Tilak for music. This was a remake of Vasan’s hit Tamil film ” Vanjikottai Valiban”. A Telugu remake was also on cards and C.Ramchandra was to give music to Hindi and Telugu versions. He had already given music to the Tamil original. He gladly accepted and wanted to call Rajendra krishna to write the songs. To his shock, Vasan objected to calling Rajendra krishna. Vasan was angry at him because he had written songs for his competitor AVM’s 2 films Bhai Bhai-1956 and Bhabhi-1957. Both films’ songs were popular and hits also. Vasan asked Ramchandra to suggest some other name. He suggested P.L.Santoshi and it was accepted. The music was completed for Raaj Tilak-1958.

C.Ramchandra went back to Bombay and started making songs for the film Amardeep along with Rajendra krishna. After the music was set, Rajendra Krishna came to know that C.Ramchandra had replaced him with Santoshi for a South film. He was enraged and broke their partnership. Rajendra krishna was also popular in South and he started suggesting the Southern producers names of Chitragupta and Ravi as Music Directors. C. Ramchandra stopped getting any films from Madras. At that time even Lata left him after recording 2 songs of the film Amardeep-1958. C.Ramchandra’s bad period had begun…..

The cast of the film Lehren-1953 was Shyama, Kishore Kumar, Shakuntala, Bipin Gupta, Iftikhar, Sunder, Johnny Walker, Leela Mishra and others. In this film, Raj kapoor was a Guest Artiste. Also Omprakash’s brother Pachhi did a small role in this film. Later Pachhi became a big Producer of Hindi films himself. In this film 6 singers were used for 10 songs. The singers were Mohd. Rafi, Kishore kumar, Hiemant kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Shamshad Begum and Sunder. Today’s fun song is sung by Mohd. Rafi and Sunder. To most readers Sunder was a comedian, but Sunder Singh was a Hero in his early films and sang many songs in his own films.

For a long time,I was searching for information on comedian Sunder. I got hold of a 2 page detailed article on Sunder, but it was in Punjabi- which I could not read or use. I found a small paragraph on Sunder in Sanjit Narvekar ji’s book ” Eena Meena Deeka”. Lastly, I requested Harish Raghuwanshi ji for help. Despite his failing health, he promptly sent me articles in Hindi, English and Gujarati, on Sunder. He is such a helpful person. May God give him a healthy life.

Sunder Singh aka Sunder was born in Sialkot, Punjab on 10th August 1916. His father was working in Madon Theatres, Calcutta. Sunder also started working there. Initially, for a long period,he did Girl’s roles. Once his work was seen by H.S.Rawail (Director in later life). He was quite impressed. Later Rawail started working with R.N.Vaidya as his assistant in direction.Meanwhile Sunder started working in Talkie films. His first film,where he was credited, was ” Na hone wali baat”-38. Before that, Rawail and Vaidya were preparing to make the film Banke Sipahi-37.Rawail recommended Sunder and Vaidya gave him an uncredited small role in that film.

Sunder and Rawail became good friends and started staying in one flat in Calcutta. After a few films here, they both went to Lahore and Sunder got the Hero’s role in the film ” Shukriya”-44. There were 4 Heroines in the film- Ramola, Rooplekha, Manorama and Raksha. Sunder’s role in this film was that of a young man from a village and Ramola was from a City. Sunder’s one song from this film-‘ Nayanon ke teer chala gayee ek shehar ki laundiya’ became very popular all over India, However the song was banned in Punjab due to its lyrics. After this they both came back to Calcutta.

His next film was Albeli-45, in which too there were 4 Heroines- Ramola, Rooplekha, Manorama and Usha. In the 40’s , Sunder acted in many films like Arabian Nights, Baap, Shabri, Chandrashekhar, Ek aurat, Grihalaxmi, Lottery, Samapti, Jhoothi kasme, Savyasachi, Do baaten, Shadi ke baad, Bawra, Khiladi, Nai Bhabhi etc. In Calcutta, Sunder got married to a girl from his community. Rawail left for Bombay. After a few months, Sunder also returned to Bombay.

Rawail was very happy to get him back and gave him roles in almost all of his films. Not only Rawail, but also J.Om Prakash, Mohan Kumar, Lekhraj Bhakri, Manoj kumar etc gave him roles in all their films and he became a busy actor. He was at one time, in great demand. He was quite popular due to his nature.In the decade of 50’s he did 88 films, which increased in the 60s and 70s. In the 80s however films came haltingly.

From singing Hero, he became a Junior artiste( extra), in presence of the new crop of actors. The role of comedians was on decline, as Heroes like Amitabh and others did comedy scenes themselves. His health started troubling him. His last film was probably Bahurani-89. He became ill for a long time and finally died on 5-3-1992. Sunder acted in 436 films. He was a good singer and sang his own songs in early cinemas. In all, Sunder sang 40 songs in 25 films. ( Thanks to Harish Raghuwanshi ji for material for adaptation.)

The story of the film Lehren-1953 was….The story of Lehren-53 revolves around 3 characters. One Hero and 2 Heroines. Kishore loves Shakuntala and treats Shyama sympathetically because she had lost her parents. She stays with her uncle omprakash. Shyama however takes Kishore’s sympathy as his love for her. Even his uncle and Kishore’s best friend Sunder think that way. This happens because Kishore feels too shy to express his love for Shakuntala. This situation becomes very embarrassing for Kishore, especially as he is pushed to marry Shyama. This part of the story is upto Interval.

After Interval, Kishore tries very hard to get out of this tricky situation and succeeds by first telling the truth to Sunder and then to uncle Omprakash. They make a plan so that Shyama overhears Kishore’s love dialogues to Shakuntala. But this has an opposite effect. Shyama thinks that Kishore has played a double game with both the girls.

At the end, all misunderstandings are cleared( for which Shakuntala had to pretend her suicide and sacrifice to allow Shyama and Kishore to get married). Shyama steps back and Kishore and Shakuntala are married.

Let us now enjoy the comedy song, by Rafi and Sunder Singh.

Today’s song is a comedy song from the film ‘Madmast’ (1953).

The film was made by Sweet Pictures. Produced and directed by Jagdish Pant, the film had music by V Balsara. Jagdish Pant seems to be a director by hobby, because he directed only one more film i.e. ‘Padosi’ (1971), which was also produced by himself. The cast of the film ‘Madmast’ (1953) was Nirupa Roy, Shashikala, Sapru, Nazir, Ansari, Shakeela and others. 7 songs were written by Madhuraj aka Madhukar Rajasthani, 2 by Manav, 1 by the director Jagdish Pant himself and one chorus song is left without name credit.

Hindi film music is like an ocean. As many rivers merge into the ocean at various stages, regional music from various parts of India is assimilated in HFM (Hindi Film Music).

Initially it was the Marathi Stage/Natya Sangeet and Parsi theater which influenced HFM. In the East, it was Rabindra Sangeet and Nazrul Geete made the basis of film songs. In the Lahore center it was the Punjabi style after ‘Khazanchi’ (1941).

After partition and polarisation of film production language wise, it was Bombay, which became the center for HFM and it was a wonderful mixture of music specialties from all over the country. There were many successful Music Directors in India. I remember a famous quotation – “Behind every successful man there is a woman.”

Can you tell me who is behind every successful Music Director ?
I am sure many of us do not have the answer.

The answer is the ARRANGER.

Now, who is this arranger? Some have a vague idea, some may even think he is the person who arranges song recording and the musicians.

An Arranger is the SOUL of film music. Once the composer conceives the tune for a song, he tells it to the Arranger, who immediately makes its notations (writing music or Swaralipi), which only a properly schooled musician can read and play. Arranger also decides the instruments and their placements in the song. Most of the Arrangers in the Hindi film industry were from Goa, where traditionally Jazz music was very popular.

A typical Goan likes to live life ‘sushegaat‘ – which loosely means ‘araam se‘ or a carefree life. Their philosophy is eat, drink and be merry. This merry part includes Music.

Goa has given many musicians to India. Lata/Asha are from Mangeshi – Goa, though the family had shifted to Kolhapur; MDs Dattaram (Wadkar) and N Datta (Datta Naik); singers Kishori Amonkar, Kesarbai Kerkar, Shobha Mudgal, Hema Sardesai, Prabhakar Karekar, Remo Fernandes, Lorna are from Goa. (The list is only indicative,not exhaustive).

Most Arrangers were from Goa——

Anthony Gonzalves from Majorda – Goa. He worked for Naushad, OP Nayyar and Lakhsmikant Pyaarelal The song “My Name Is Anthony Gonzalves” from ‘Amar, Akbar, Anthony’ (1977) is a tribute by Lakhsmikant Pyaarelal to him, as he taught Pyarelal so many things including notations.

Chic Chocolate aka Anthony Vaz from Aldona – Goa. He worked for C Ramchandra mainly.

Chris Perry worked for Khayyam, RD Burman, Kalyanji Anandji and Lakhsmikant Pyaarelal.

Frank Fernando worked for Anil Biswas, Kishore Kumar, Roshan, C Ramchandra.

Sebastian D’Souza from Bicholim – Goa. He worked for Shanker Jaikishen from 1952 to 1975 and OP Nayyar.

Most of the players of western instruments in the orchestras were from Goa, like renowned musicians such as Robert Correa and Mike Machado (the pianists), Albuquerque, Verga, Simplicio D’Souza and John Gonsalves (the cellists), V Balsara and Goody Seervai (the accordionists), Duorado, Narvekar and Karnad (the solo violinists) and David (the mandolin player) etc.

The names given above are only indicative and not exhaustive. In addition to these arrangers, there were countless known and unknown arrangers in the film industry. Many arrangers, after working for a long time, desired to become music directors themselves. Some of them became MDs also, however history says that most such arrangers failed as MDs. Of course, there are few cases where they have succeeded too, but such cases are very few.

Datta Davjekar, Timir Baran Bhattacharya, Master Eric, Chic Chocolate, Shridhar Parsekar, Anil Mohile, Hemant Kedar (Ramkrishna Shinde), Bal Parte, Bhushan and many other names can be quoted as arrangers who failed as MDs in Hindi films. Few people know that the original arranger in the Hindi film industry was Mohd Shafi – who too became a music director later in his career. According to DO Bhansali, a leading sound recordist of the 60s and the 70s, a group of arrangers, namely Dattaram, Enoch Daniels and Sebastian D’souza together gave music to film ‘Street Singer’ (1966), under the name of ‘Suraj’. After this one film, the group disintegrated. There are however some cases where the one time assistants or arrangers became famous and successful independent music directors. In fact, most MDs were assistants in the beginning of their careers to gain knowledge and experience. There is an interesting case where a well known MD worked as an arranger/assistant to another famous MD, because he respected the senior MD. I am talking about C Ramchandra who became the assistant and arranger to Anil Biswas for the film ‘Girls School’ (1949). By 1949, CR himself was a much in demand and popular MD, but because of his respect for Anil Biswas he agreed to be his assistant on request from Anil Biswas ! This was the respect given to seniors in early days of Hindi films in Bombay !

Now let us talk about V Balsara, who was an assistant and arranger in Hindi films who became music director for today’s film ‘Madmast’. His piano, univox and melodica, the instruments he loved, be it for composing music for films or otherwise, have come to personify the legend of Vistas Ardeshir Balsara, the music director, who died in Kolkata’ on 24-3-2005.

The ‘gentleman musician’, as the affable Parsi was known among friends, had only his music to give him company in the twilight years as he grappled alone with ill health in the absence of his wife and two sons had predeceased him. The striking feature of Balsara was his never-say-die spirit. At 83, Balsara was still going strong on the music front with his Bengali film production ‘Til Theke Taal’ (2005) running in theaters in West Bengal.

He settled in Kolkata in 1954 after he was invited by legendary musician Jnan Prakash Ghosh, to the city. Earlier, he had been in Mumbai, then Bombay.

Born on 22nd June 1922, Balsara learnt music from his mother Nazamaye, and gave his first solo performance at the age of six with the pedal harmonium, in use in those times, at a packed CJ Hall in Mumbai. Barely ten years later, the young lad was assisting famous music director Ustad Mushtaque Hussain, in a Bombay film production ‘Baadal’ (1942) and had made a place for himself as a permanent assistant music director at the Filmistan studio under popular directors Madan Mohan, Khemchand Prakash and Ghulam Haider.

Balsara had his brush with the Who’s Who of the music world after he became the orchestra director of music company HMV in 1947 and then switched over to the RK Films banner three years later to work with the likes of Shankar Jaikishan and Naushad.

As the Founder Secretary of peer bodies like Bombay Cine Musicians’ Association and Bombay Cine Music Directors’ Association, Balsara earned the love and respect of his associates and young musicians.

Basking in the audience appreciation during a musical soiree in Kolkata’s Hindustan Park in 1953, the young musician decided to make this cultural capital his home a year later with a prized film assignment ‘Agni Pariksha’ (1954). At the coveted New Empire Theatres, he charmed audiences again in 1962 arranging music for Rabindranath Tagore’s celebrated play ‘Debatar Grash’ while debuting his own group the Indian Symphony Orchestra.

He gave Kolkata another first — the city’s maiden stereo recording in 1970 — when he put together ‘The Sound of Music’ recording strains of four Indian instruments in one album.

He had to his credit numerous popular film albums, both in Hindi and Bengali, a language he chose to speak more frequently in and with much more ease than his native Gujarati.

From the obscure ‘Circus Girl’ in 1943 to ‘O Panchi’ (1944), ‘Rangmahal’ (1948), ‘Madmast’ (1953), ‘Talash’ (1952), ‘Char Dost’ (1956), ‘Vidyapati'(1964), ‘Qurbani’ (1952), ‘Wohi Ladki’ (1967), ‘Jogi Aur Jawani’ (1975), ‘Pyaar’ (1969), ‘Jai Baba Vaidyanath’ (1979) in Hindi to ‘Madhu Shraboni’, ‘Joy Baba Baidyanath’, ‘Maa’, ‘Chalachal’, ‘Panchatapa’, ‘Subho Bibaha’, ‘Manik’, ‘Kanchan Kanya’, ‘Panna’ and ‘Pathey Holo Dekha’ in Bengali, he had an enviable repertoire.

Balsara who was greatly influenced by western music learnt to play the piano from Hildafield, a German musician. His knowledge of the piano made him use it to play Indian classical music also with ease. He mastered the technique of using the instrument for playing Indian classical music from Muneswar Dayal of Gaya. He was equally at ease with string and wind instruments.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd. Rafi and it is a comedy song. In this film’s songs 2 songs are sung by Dhan Indorewala, who was V Balsara’s wife. Today’s song is 4th song of this film to be featured on this Blog.

Today’s song is a comedy duet from the film ‘Roshni’ (1949).

The film was made by Standard Pictures Corporation, Bombay. It was directed by Ramanlal Desai and the MD was C Ramchandra. The lyricist was PL Santoshi. The cast of the film was Rehana, Nihal, Pran, VH Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Sophia, Chand Barq, Indira, Shama, Zarine, Ishrat etc.

After making it in Hindi films as an MD for film ‘Sukhi Jeevan’ (1942), C Ramchandra had joined Jayant Desai productions on a salary of Rs. 300 pm. He gave successful films like ‘Bhaktaraj’ (1943), ‘Zaban’ (1943), ‘Lalkar’ (1944), ‘Manorama’ (1944) and ‘Samrat Chandragupta’ (1945), C Ramchandra felt that he deserved a salary increase. As Jayant Desai was not ready to increase it to his desire, he left the company. After a few months, with the help of Kavi Pradeep, C Ramchandra joined Filmistan, where he got what he wanted, namely salary of Rs. 1,000 pm and freedom to give music to outside films also.

While he continued with Filmistan, he reached his peak in career by giving hit musicals like ‘Safar’ (1946), ‘Shehnai’ (1947), ‘Sajan’ (1947), ‘Nadiya Ke Paar’ (1948), ‘Khidki’ (1948), ‘Patanga’ (1949), ‘Sargam’ (1950) and many more. Meanwhile he was giving music to films of other production companies, but managing a proper balance with Filmistan films. ‘Roshni’ (1949) was also one such film.

Taking a look at the cast, I found 3 actresses of interest, about whom not much is known to common lovers of old films and music. The first was Shama. During the period of 1930’s and the 1940’s, there were 3 actresses with the name Shama or Shyama. The first of them was Shyama Zutshi, second was Shama Dulari and the third was actress Shyama, who ruled in the 50’s and the 60’s with over 160 films.

Shyama Zutshi was the first Kashmiri Girl who joined films in 1934. She acted in many films, some of which are :-

1 ‘Vishnu Bhakti’ in 1934
2 ‘Laila Majnu’ in 1935
3 ‘Khooni Jadugar’ in 1939
4 ‘Kaarwaan e Hayaat’ in 1935

Shyama Zutshi belonged to a well to do family of Lahore. Her father was a barrister. She was quite a successful and sought after actress but suddenly she moved out from films and focused on politics and freedom struggle. Shyama was a congress leader .

Another reason for her to quit films was the presence of a fellow Kashmiri Actor Chander Mohan Wattal. Chander Mohan would always tell her to quit as according to him acting in films was not meant for girls from good families . Chander Mohan Wattal opposed the entry of Kashmiri girls to films .

The second was Shama Dulari. Not much is known about her personal life. Shyama Dulari hailed from a small city of Madhya Pradesh. She was interested in acting and had acted in school and college dramas. After education, she came to Bombay and appeared for a screen test and interview at Filmistan. She passed the test, but did not like the salary that was offered.

She went to Poona and met WZ Ahmed of Shalimar Pictures. He was quite impressed with her and signed an exclusive contract for 3 years, offering her a very lucrative salary. However in the next two years she acted only in two films – ‘Meerabai’ (1947) and ‘Shehzadi’ (1947). Due to the contract, she could not work anywhere else also.

After 1947, when Ahmed migrated to Pakistan along with Neena, she came to Bombay. Jayant Desai signed her for the lead role in the film ‘Lakhpati’. Unfortunately, due to her father’s illness, she had to leave Bombay and go back to her native city in MP. She came back and tried to get work. She worked in films like ‘Rangeela Rajasthan’ (1949), ‘Shair’ (1949), ‘Roshni’ (1949), ‘Rooplekha’ (1949), ‘Naqli Baap’ (1949), ‘Jal Tarang’ (1949), ‘Ek Teri Nishani’ (1949), ‘Char Din’ and ‘Dolti Naiya’ (1950). Her last known film was ‘Babul’ (1950) wherein she did a small role.

No information after that. Problem was that at the same time the famous actresses Shyama (Khurshid Akhtar) and Shyama Dulari were in the film line. Shyama initially was acting under the names like Baby Akhtar, Baby Khurshid and Baby Shyama; whereas Shama Dulari was credited as Shama, Shama Dulari and sometimes Shyama also. I listed films in Shyama’s name and tried to see the credits of films which were available. Though very few films are available on You Tube, I tried to separate the films for Shama Dulari based on her credits and by conjuncture. Still there could be some errors, which will be corrected when proof comes up suitably.

The third was Shyama, too well known to write anything about. We all know her well.

The case of Shama Dulari was different. She was actually a victim of an intentional restrictive contract. When she signed a contract with WZ Ahmed of Shalimar Pictures, Poona, little did she know that she would rot there without work for 3 years ! The company used her only in 2 films – ‘Shehzadi’ (1947) and ‘Meerabai’ (1947). Rest of the time she was paid only half salary and legally she was prohibited from working elsewhere. It was only after Ahmed migrated to Pakistan, with Neena and without paying the staff salaries, she became a free bird.

Such cases were not uncommon in the Hindi film industry. This happened with actress Meena Shorey too (Lara Lappa girl) and Sohrab Modi, who demanded Rs. 60,000 from her to remove a legal case against her for breaking their contract and working in a Lahore film. It was with the intervention of Mehtab, that the amount was reduced to Rs. 30,000, which Meena had to pay through her nose to avoid legal action.

Same happened with Mrudula, the first heroine of Dilip Kumar in the film ‘Jwaar Bhata’ (1944). She had signed a contract with Devika Rani of Bombay Talkies for work in the films. However, after ‘Jwaar Bhata’, she did not get any film. After 1945 end, Devika Rani left Bombay Talkies, selling all her shares and getting married to ‎Svetoslav Roerich,  a Russian artiste, leaving Mrudula to rot for the remaining 3 years without work and thus spoiling her career.

This also took place with the firebrand actress Shanta Apte, when Prabhat Film company threatened her to take legal action if she worked in films of other companies, breaking their contract. She was a tough person. She staged a demonstration at the gates of Prabhat film company and also sat for Fasting (अन्न सत्याग्रह). Newspaper reporters were called, and for the fear of bad publicity, Prabhat compromised and relieved Shanta Apte unconditionally !

The third name in the cast is Indira (Wadkar). In the 40’s and 50’s, there were 3 Indira named actresses. Indira Wadkar, Indira Billi (heroine of some Punjabi films) and Indira Bansal – the fat comedienne. Hansa Wadkar’s father had three sisters, Kesharbai, Indirabai and Sushilabai. Sushila was married to Master Vinayak, a renowned actor-director of the early era of Indian cinema. The elder sister as well as Indira Wadkar were acting in films and Indira was a classical singer as well. Indira acted in several films including ‘Duniya Kya Hai’ (aka ‘Resurrection’) (1937) and in films of Vinayak’s production company Hans Films like ‘Devata’ (1939) in Marathi. Indira used the surname Wadkar to avoid using the family name Salgaokar, for fear of reprisal from society against women acting in films. Her older sister, Kesharbai, was working in a film made by MG Rangnekar and suggested that Indira Wadkar work in films to sustain her family. She acted in 11 Hindi films. She was a popular shrewish mother in law in Marathi films.

Today’s song is a comedy duet sung by Chitalkar and Shamshad Begum. Enjoy.

A QUEST FOR THE UNKNOWN !

Today’s song is a comedy song from the film Dr.Ramesh aka Dr.Romesh-1949.

Last year, at the beginning of the Rainy season, I had gone to our Farm House at Malavali (near Lonavala) with my family. It is a cool place for relaxation. While talking to the watchman of our house, we came to know about a natural and very scenic waterfall between Malavali and Lonavala. It was, I think, called ” Johnson’s Waterfall” – a name I had never heard in my life. In fact no one in the group had heard about it. I took the address from him and the next day we set out to visit this waterfall. The driver heard the directions and the GPS was set for that location accordingly. We proceeded as per the guidance of Google GPS. After a few kilometers, the road became very narrow. When we proceeded on it, after a Km or so, we found that a big board was put across the road, proclaiming that this road was now closed forever.

We were stunned. We got down. There were few farmers looking at us with pity. On enquiry, we came to know that the said waterfall has now been closed for the visitors. We were advised by the farmers to go back. Now, the road was so narrow that it was impossible to turn around the car. The only way was to go in reverse till a wider road was available. We were forced to do so and finally turned around the car after 2 kms of reverse travel. The disappointment was greater than the trouble we had to undergo. All our enthusiasm to see the hitherto unseen waterfall was washed away ! You can only imagine our sunken faces and drooping shoulders.

Why I am telling you about this case of disappointment here is because last week once again I experienced this same feeling of disappointment, in the case of the film Dr. Ramesh-1949. When Jaffer Bhai uploaded 4 songs of this film, I was wondering whether these songs were already discussed on the Blog. I immediately checked up the ‘ List of songs-Moviewise” on the blog and to my delight, I found that ” Dr. Ramesh” songs were not yet discussed here. I was very happy that I got a chance now to write about a ‘ Debuting ‘ film. To get further details about the film, I opened the HFGK and came to the page of this film.

This is when I remembered my trip to ‘ Johnson Waterfalls ‘ near Lonavala. The page of ‘ Dr. Ramesh was totally BLANK ! Only the name of the film and mukhadas of some songs were seen. Other than that there was no other information about the Director, Music Director, Lyricist or even the film’s cast. I was stunned. All my enthusiasm about writing on this film and its song withered away instantly. I had reached a Dead End !

Then I tried every arrow in my armour. I searched for this film on Google, all books, all known sites of film and songs. Perhaps some information would have been available if this film was made in Bombay, Poona, Kolhapur or even Madras. Unfortunately this film was made By Dev Darshan films in Calcutta. So no information was available. Finally and desperately, I wrote mails to Shri Hamraz ji and Harish Raghuwanshi ji. While Harish ji declared “No Information”, it was the prompt response of hamraz ji that he would give me ‘some’ information next day-it was already 10 pm in the night.

True to his words, next before 9 am, Hamraz ji’s mail came with ‘ some ‘ information. I am thankful to him that he replied so quickly to my query and gave whatever was available with him about this film. What he gave was this –
1. Director….Prakash Bakshi
2. Music Director….Kali pad Sen aka K.P.Sen
3. Lyricist…. Rangeen
4. Cast…. Naeem,Maya, Channi, Balqees, Haqumat, Pinaki, K.C.Verma and Kavish.

This was my last chance of getting information and he gave it to me, but I was no wiser. None of these names (except K.P.Sen with only his 4 films’ names known) I received were known to me and all these names were heard by me for the first time in my life ! Now my quest for information about these names started. Lo and Behold ! I came across the big disappointment once more. I could not get any information on any of these names anywhere on the Net or in any books.

You know this is the problem with Bengali films and artistes. Their information is not easily available in any other language, possibly except Bangla. This is because Bengalis, I feel, generally do not believe in the world outside Bengal. I understand they have a problem with the Hindi language. Even South film artistes too have the same problems. But then this is how we have missed out on the arts and talents of Bangla artistes and other experts.

Anyway, the gist of the matter is I have no information on the film, its director, MD, Lyricist or any of the Cast members. Now, what does one do when he has hit his head against a boulder ? What can I write in this post on this very good comedy song from this film ? Nothing ! The last straw on the Camel’s back was that the singer’s name is Dwijen Choudhary, about whom also I do not know anything !

This is the failed story of the ” Quest for a Film’s information “. Now let us forget it and enjoy this really very good song from the film Dr. Ramesh aka Dr.Romesh-1949.

The movie “Dr Ramesh”(1949) as well as the singer Dwijen Chawdhary make their debuts in the blog with this song.


Song-Compoundary bhi kitni museebat ka kaam hai(Dr Ramesh)(1949) Singer-Dwijen Chawdhury, Lyrics-Rangeen, MD-K P Sen

Lyrics

compoundary bhi kitni museebat ka kaam hai
compoundary bhi kitni museebat ka kaam hai
ho doctor na paas to jeena haraam hai
ho doctor na paas to jeena haraam hai
compoundary bhi kitni museebat ka kaam hai

dispensary mein ye jo dawaayen hain
is kadar
quonine soda iodine aur ye tincture
har roz inse main hi banaata hoon mixture
har roz inse main hi banaata hoon mixture
kaaghaz ki is ?? ke likh deta hai doctor
har kaam main karoon
magar doctor ka naam hai
compoundary bhi kitni museebat ka kaam hai

aate hain ghoorte huye ae ae ae ae
aate hain ghoorte huye mujhko mareez sab
jaise sabhi ke dard aur dukh ka main hoon sabab
inko na kuchh lihaaj kisi ka na hai adab
inko na kuchh lihaaj kisi ka na hai adab
aur inke is salook pe dil keh raha hai ab
dispensary ko door se mera salaam hai
compoundary bhi kitni museebat ka kaam hai

khaali hai pet
khaali hai pet paas rasad hai na maal hai
dispensary mei ab mera rehna muhaal hai
khaali hai pet paas rasad hai na maal hai
dispensary mei ab mera rehna muhaal hai
aate hain jo mareez to unka ye haal hai
aate hain jo mareez to unka ye haal hai
paisa koi nikaal ke de kya majaal hai
roti ka koi jikar na shaam(?) hai
compoundary bhi kitni museebat ka kaam hai
compoundary bhi kitni museebat ka kaam hai
