“मैंने सौ बार ख़यालों में बनाए खाके

jo baat tujh mein hai
teri tasveer mein nahin. . .

It would be an interesting exercise, to do a series of songs, wherein one song is introduced through another song. So many times it happens, a song starts to play, and the mind automatically thinks of another song that expresses similar emotions. I am sure we will be able to list numerous such pairs. There is after all, only so many emotions that the human mind plays with. It is the poet’s mind that will express the same thought in a huge variety of combinations of words.

बहारों ने छेड़ा खुशी का तराना

The antecedents of this song are somewhat peculiar. As per available information, this song is listed in the Geet Kosh for the film ‘Aansoo’, an unreleased film from 1970s. Also, as I checked for online availability, I find that this song is posted for the film ‘Majboori’, that is listed for the year 1986. I went back and double checked other songs which are listed in the Geet Kosh for the unreleased film ‘Aansoo’, and sure enough, the songs listed in Geet Kosh figure in the film ‘Majboori’. The most likely scenario is that the film was started sometimes in the 1970s, with the title ‘Aansoo’, and the songs were created and released under that film name. The film would have been delayed inordinately, and finally found its release almost a decade later in 1986, albeit under a different title – ‘Majboori’.

‘Basera’ (1950) was produced under the banner of Watan Pictures and was directed by Inaayat. The star cast included Ramola, Heeralal, Veena Kumari, Roopmala, Chandabai, Budho Advani etc. I have no idea about the film’s story but going by the songs, it is apparent that the film belonged to social genre.

Missing Films of 1960s – 26

There is a lot of discussion, heated debate, controversy etc. etc. on plagiarism. Given that the entire structure of the music world is founded on simply seven basic notes. Yes, we go on to sub notes and compound notes, and then ragas (combination of notes). But to the uninitiated, and untrained in classical music (like myself), it seems well nigh impossible that one can continue to keep on creating new songs and do not repeat a melody. Every day, hundreds, maybe thousands of new songs are born. It is really an amazing wonder that we do not find many more replications, than we already do.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 33
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

wo jab yaad aaye
bahut yaad aaye

yes, bahut yaad aaye. . .  that voice – the magic, the magnetism, the feeling of surreal contentment that descends into the being, and ensconces it with a joyous delight. It is a voice, that now lives only in our memories, or in the ethereal sound waves. The memories are such, they will never be detached till the breaths last. And the sound – they say in our culture that sound is forever; it lives in the space for all times to come.  And so will this voice. This voice – of Rafi Sb. This voice that went to sleep 36 years ago, today. 36 years seem to be a long time, a third of a human life already. But it seems just like, well, recently. And the affinity and the magic of this voice has only deepened with time.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, with all humility and respect and love.

‘त’
“तुम्हीं से हुई है शुरू और तुम्हीं पे सनम खत्म होगी कहानी हमारी”

What a gem of a delight this song is, from the 1969 film ‘Mera Dost’. As we continue to delve and search, we continue to come across as yet un-posted songs that are simply out of this world. Such wonders will not cease, I am sure for quite some time yet.

For a soft and lovely and romantic expression, it probably does not get better than this delightful ghazal. The words, the music, and the rendition – all have come together to craft this wonderful expression of bashful love. Love, that wants to say many things, but remains un-speaking, when presented with the opportunity. The anxiety and hesitations tie the tongue, and the moments pass by without a word being said. Shakeel Sb has so beautifully painted the words around this emotion. Each couplet is a priceless gem. I am bowled over with how the words are knitted together.

hasraten aarzooen umangen
jaane kis raah par jaa rahi theen
un ko dekha to manzil samajh kar
ruk gaya karvaan un ke aage

‘Toofaani Tarzan’ – a picture with this name was produced and released way back in 1937. That film was produced by Wadia Movietone, and the title role of Tarzan was performed by John Cawas. The film had three songs, written by Pandit Gyan, and composed by Master Mohammad. All three songs are in the voice of Ahmed Dilawar. Interestingly, the film itself is available, as are the three songs on 78 rpm records published under the ‘Twin Records’ label.

Genius of Jaidev – 48
———————————

After full one month, I submit one more jewel from genius Jaidev. Whatever of Jaidev-ji’s songs I had in my khajana upto the year 1979 have now been covered. Not being a true researcher (though I worked in a research institute for forty years) for digging out songs from past decades, which are rare and not easily available, there may be some which I will present if they surface, someday, but I now enter the year 1980.
