Feroze Khan – a name that forever spells flamboyance and style. Almost sounding like the Kingdom of the Pathaan. A popular and likeable persona who had to face near disapproval as a leading man, till quite many years into his career. And that too, when he decided to take on the industry on his own terms, and set up his own production house, delivering one hit film after another.

Remembering Feroze Khan on his 78th anniversary of birth today (25th September).

For almost a decade and half of in his early career, his forays into the top grade cinema is to be the understudy – the second lead, the hero’s best friend, the younger brother – always to end up as the runner up by the time the story concludes. Well, in ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1969), he is shot at and killed while deposing in a court room. A performance, by the way, which got him the year’s Filmfare award as the Best Supporting Male Actor. At a level, this image quite stuck with him for many years. It is almost as if his performance skills are heightened in the face of another skilled and popular opponent. But by himself, the producers at the top line almost as if do not want to gamble with his name.

After about a dozen years of this experience, he sets up his own production house – to deal with the film making world on his own terms now. In an earlier article for the song “Raaton Ki Siyahi Hai. . .”, I have written about his career progression from the late 1950s to his last appearances  in the first decade of the 2000s.

Today, I present this song from the film ‘Tasveer’ from 1966. The film comes from the banner of Wadia Movietone, and is directed by JBH Wadia. As I searched for some details, I locate this very interesting review that our dear Memsaab has published for this film on her website. 🙂 After reading the review, it sounds like a must-see film.

The interesting thing about this film is that it brings together two very ultra long timers in the industry, after a gap of almost quarter of a century. When I saw this co-incidence, I could not believe it myself. DN Madhok has been writing songs in Hindi films since 1932. And C Ramchandra has been on the music direction since late 1930s, early 1940s. These two extremely prolific artists apparently came together only twice before this film. In 1943, they worked together in films ‘Zabaan’ and ‘Bhaktraj’. Then after 23 years, they come together just once again – and that film is ‘Tasveer’ in 1966. And that, after having been contemporaries in the industry for almost three decades.

Both artists are at the closing horizon of their careers. DN Madhok’s name appears just in one more film. Which makes this his second last film. C Ramchandra inning continues, and he goes on to direct the music for another handful of films, two of which are in the decade of 1970s. But nonetheless, it is the closing years for both.

The song is in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor. On screen, a very young and energetic Feroze Khan is serenading his lady love – Kalpana. This one is a typical in-the-grden-around-the-trees song. Feroze Khan, is in his seventh year in the films. Memsaab comments that Feroze Khan is attempting to do a Shammi Kapoor in this film, and, I quote, “. . . he is so FINE, he almost succeeds”. Now that is saying a lot. 😉

So, enjoy this song, and remember this firebrand swashbuckling young pathaan from the 1960s.

 

Song – Tasveer Bhi Dekhi Thi, Aur Inko Bhi Dekha Hai  (Tasveer) (1966) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – C Ramchandra

Lyrics

tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai
tasveer ajab shai thi
aur ye bhi cheez kya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai

mauka bhi hai fizaayen bhi
ye parbati hawaayen bhi
mauka bhi hai fizaayen bhi
ye parbati hawaayen bhi
aur saath mein ye
ae dil. . .
aur saath mein ye
ae dil kya aur maangta hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai
tasveer ajab shai thi
aur ye bhi cheez kya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai

kyon itni mastiyaan bhar lee
aankhon mein kisi ne apni
kyon itni mastiyaan bhar lee
aankhon mein kisi ne apni
wo nazren jhuki rehti hain. . .
wo nazren jhuki rehti hain
jinka ke bol baala hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai
tasveer ajab shai thi
aur ye bhi cheez kya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai

aise jo chup hain yun
hum samajh gaye hain kyon
aise jo chup hain yun
hum samajh gaye hain kyon
zulfon ne jhuk ke kaanon mein. . .
zulfon ne jhuk ke kaanon mein
kuchh in se keh diya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai
tasveer ajab shai thi
aur ye bhi cheez kya hai
tasveer bhi dekhi thi
aur inko bhi dekha hai

तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है
तस्वीर अजब शै थी
और ये भी चीज़ क्या है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है

मौका भी है फिज़ाएँ भी
ये परबती हवाएँ भी
मौका भी है फिज़ाएँ भी
ये परबती हवाएँ भी
और साथ में ये ए दिल॰ ॰ ॰
और साथ में ये ए दिल
क्या और मांगता है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है
तस्वीर अजब शै थी
और ये भी चीज़ क्या है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है

क्यों इतनी मस्तियाँ भर लीं
आँखों में किसी ने अपनी
क्यों इतनी मस्तियाँ भर लीं
आँखों में किसी ने अपनी
वो नज़रें झुकी रहती हैं॰ ॰ ॰
वो नज़रें झुकी रहती हैं
जिनका के बोल बाला है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है
तस्वीर अजब शै थी
और ये भी चीज़ क्या है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है

ऐसे जो चुप हैं यूं
हम समझ गए हैं क्यों
ऐसे जो चुप हैं यूं
हम समझ गए हैं क्यों
ज़ुल्फों ने झुक के कानों में॰ ॰ ॰
ज़ुल्फों ने झुक के कानों में
कुछ इनसे कह दिया है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है
तस्वीर अजब शै थी
और ये भी चीज़ क्या है
तस्वीर भी देखी थी
और इनको भी देखा है

Hullo to all in Atuldom

If it is a post by me then it has to be someone’s’ birthday.

It is 8thSeptember. Our beloved Asha Bhonsle’s 84thbirthday. So let me wish her a very Happy Birthday with this very lively number from her Non- Film album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (1997). I just thought that it will be a lovely departure from routine to showcase the versatility of the forever young-at-heart Asha.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights -1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

oo oo. . neend na mujh ko aaye,
dil mera ghabraaye
chup ke chup ke, koyi aa ke,
soyaa pyaar jagaaye

कोई तो ऐसी उमर रही होगी, कोई तो ऐसा मुकाम आया होगा ज़िंदगी में, जब किन्हीं जज़्बातों के चलते, कुछ (या फिर कई) रातें आप ने जाग के गुज़ारो होंगीं।

There must have been an age, a time in life, a passage of emotional intensities, when you may have spend a few (or maybe many) sleepless nights – thinking, waiting, contemplating. Yes, they visit us all, the nights of the wide open eyes, when a cloudy sky is an irritating bore – for if the skies were clear, at least you would be able to start counting the stars.

This article is a tribute to an actor whom I started admiring for his acting calibre only a couple of years back. He became a star actor without having any godfather in Hindi film industry. During his filmy career of less than 15 years (1934-48), he donned the different kind of roles, mostly in negative shades, in around 30 films most of which became box office hits. Had there been a concept of super star in his days, he would have been the one among K L Saigal, Motilal, Surendra etc. The actor is Chandra Mohan and today, July 24, 2017 happens to be his 111th birth anniversary.

Today is a special day for Atulites and each one of us on our Whatsapp Group knows that it is Blog’s 9th anniversary. The Blog’s anniversary is the mother of all other celebrations connected with it. Otherwise how would it be possible to celebrate century songs, artists’ centuries, artists’ birth anniversaries, the remembrance days, other special occasions etc without the existence of the Blog?

A voice, that is as soft and pleasing as cool breeze. And a singing that is most natural, with no efforts for any artificial embellishments to the rendition.  A voice that is not formally trained. And yet, this voice and the persona behind it, have become synonymous with being the first lady of Bangla cinema.

Remembering Kaanan Devi on her remembrance day. She passed away this day (17th July) in 1992.

This song is the 100th duet of Rafi Sb and Geeta Dutt to be posted here on our blog.

As I was browsing the net earlier in the day, checking for articles and source material on Guru Dutt, I came across this she’er (couplet) which was written by the poet Kaifi Azmi in 1964, on hearing the news of Guru Dutt’s demise.

रहने को सदा दहर में आता नहीं कोई,
तुम जैसे गए ऐसे भी जाता नहीं कोई
माना की उजालों ने तुम्हें दाग़ दिये थे,
बे रात ढले शमा बुझाता नहीं कोई

rehne ko sadaa dehar mein aata nahin koi
tum jaise gaye aise bhi jaata nahin koi
maana ki ujaalon ne tumhen daagh diye the
be-raat dhale shama bujhaata nahin koi

It is true, no one comes in this world
To reside for ever
But the way you departed
No one even leaves that way
Granted that the brightness of flame
May have inflicted painful burns
But still, no one douses the lamp
Before the night comes to an end

Remembering Guru Dutt, the vital genius of Hindi cinema, on his anniversary today (9 july 2017). Had he been alive, he would have been 92 today.

Last of the Music Moguls. Not that there have not been more prolific artists and music directors after him. One can readily name a few – Anu Malik, AR Rahman, Ilayaraja. But me, personally speaking, will not put the follow on ‘champs’ in the same bracket. Something ended when he left us, twenty three years ago. Times were-a-changing even as the 1960s played itself out. And he himself was singularly instrumental in that transformation.

In a calendar year we celebrate special anniversaries of personalities related to HFM in almost all the months. Moreover, we pay our respect and homages on the remembrance day of such personalities too.

We also celebrate birth anniversaries of our team members and their family members and other ‘special days’ in their life, through posts/songs on the blog.

Today’s song is from film ‘Anban’ (1944) (pronounced as un-bun). So far, only one song from this film has been discussed on our blog in 2011. This is, therefore, the second song from this film. No songs of this film are available anywhere like You Tube etc. Then, how did I get introduced to  this song ? There is a story behind this.
