Missing Films of 1960s – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘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.

Gosh, I did not myself realize that the gap for my “nervous 999” was 52 days. When Khyati Ben specifically mentioned that number, I instinctively scrambled to check, and she is right. Somehow I was under the mistaken notion that I was within the month. But no, the gap was much more. And unhappily so. I did not intend for it to be so long – but then, as they say, the way to hell is paved with good intentions.😉

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

hazaaron khwaahishen aisi
ke har khwaahish pe dam nikle
bahut nikle mere armaan
magar phir bhi kam nikle

roz aise hi hota hai, it happens almost every day. Every day, there is a song that comes to mind, or a song that someone reminds me of, or a ‘new’ old song that I get to hear – a song that is not yet on the blog, or maybe not yet online even. There is an immediate urge, a rush to sit down at my desk and finger type a new post on my laptop. And also upload it online, if need be. Many a time I even start it. The melody continues to hum in the mind. Always overlaid on to another melody that is now a fixture in the backdrop, a melody that you have heard me mention often in my writings – ye hansta hua kaarvan zindagi ka na poochho chala hai kidhar

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 03
——————————————————————————–

Sometimes when I am contemplating a post and thinking about how to start and what to write in a song post, there are those long forgotten thoughts and sayings or some impressions formed in earlier decades that come to mind. Today, though was very hectic for me, since morning I was on the move, and the heat in Mumbai was not helping. Some how all these factors culminated in me getting a headache by lunch time, which kept worsening as the day wore on. But in the office I had certain urgent things to see to, plus to meet certain people. Changes and advancements in one’s career, though one actively seeks and strives to achieve, also bring about the need of all sorts of adjustments and getting acquainted with new responsibilities. It was one of those days, where the transition was for me to absorb and to look ahead with positivism. But for the headache. Eventually I did kill it with paracetamol. So tomorrow is going to be a new day, promising and bright, God willing.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘झ’
“झुका झुका के नज़र यूं उठाई जाती है”

jab bhi ye dil udaas hota hai
jaane kaun aas paas hota hai

These lines tickle the strands of the mind often, when in the moods of a tranquil nothingness – sometimes in the moments just as the self is drifting into sleep, or sometimes, on a journey in a relaxed coziness with nothing particular to do, or sometimes on lonely walks in the evenings. And the mind wonders, trying to put a face to a distant thought – “jaane kaun aas paas . . . hai”. That face is almost never distinct. Whose presence it is that I feel – the mind is yet to discern, and ascribe substance to the tenuous wisps that almost form the image, but then always fails to bring into a distinct focus. And the mind wanders, continues to seek – an unfinished image, trying to capture an elusive face, and a name that keeps bumping tantalizingly close to the edges of memory, yet always remains just a breath away from my grasp.

Missing Films of 1960s – 19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

We are now getting close to the end of 1962. The next film from that year which is being introduced today is ‘Sher Khan’. The film and its songs are available on the internet, and have been for some time now. Apparently,  we just did not get around to bringing up here, the songs from this film. Probably it is the obscurity of the film and its title, and the level of unfamiliarity that the team may have with this film and its songs. With music by SN Tripathi, the songs of this film are very good. Once we get to hear them, then the mind wonders – where have these been hiding so far. But anyway, we are getting to them now, and that is a good thing.

‘ख’
“खुली वादियों का सफर है”

Yesterday, 24th February, a living legend of Indian cinema turned 88.  From his pen have come such haunting songs as “Kho Diye, Hain Sanam, Teri Talaash Mein, Pichhle Kai Janam” (‘Teri Talaash Mein’, 1968), “Kai Sadiyon Se, Kai Janmon Se” (‘Milaap’, 1972), and such songs of love as “Main To Har Mod Par Us Ko Doonga Sadaa” (‘Chetna’, 1970), “Phir Milengi Kahaan, Aisi Tanhaaiyaan”, (‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Har Janam Mein Hamaara Milan” (‘Kaagaz Ki Naao’, 1975), and “Tumhe Ho Na Ho, Mujhko To, Itna Yakeen Hai” (‘Gharonda’, 1977). Starting his film career with the film ‘Jaggu’ in 1952, this poet of the off beat continues to be active on both the big and small screens.

Wishing a very happy birth anniversary to Naqsh Lyallpuri, and also wishing him many more healthy and poetical years still to come.

‘क’
“कल मेरी तरह मुझको सलाम आप करेंगे”

We now move to the consonants, having completed the list of basic vowels. So far, the only alphabet missing is the letter ‘ ई’.

This here is a wonderful nazm from the 1973 film ‘Mere Ghareeb Nnawaaz’. A very soft expression of first love, which has been sung so softly by Rafi Sb.  I remember this nazm was quite popular in its time and was frequently heard on the radio waves.

‘ओ’
“ओ ओ ओ गोरी लाखों जनम से”

Yet one more truly vintage Rafi, if ever there was one. The songs by him simply do not cease to wonder the mind, such is the quality of expression and the depth of a seasoned rendition. The measured deliberateness of singing underscores the mastery of the singer on perfectly realizing the nuances of the emotions involved. Yes, truly vintage Rafi.
