When I saw this song on You Tube, a few days ago, I was very happy. This was one of the most popular Lories in those days – and naturally so, because it was composed by the melody King Chitragupt and was sung by the melody Queen Lata Mangeshkar. In one of her interviews to Film fare, she had said ” I like to sing songs of Chitragupt ji and I particularly liked the lori ‘ Chanda loriyan sunaaye’ from film Naya Sansar-1959.”

I was pleasantly surprised to know that this famous Lori was yet to be posted on our Blog. Surely, it fits into the song category of “How I forgot to post this song earlier”. I believe, this song was waiting for me only !

Lories have been a part of many films, where a family life is the main plank of the film story. The earliest famous Lori was the one sung by K L Saigal – “So ja Raajkumari so jaa”, from film Zindagi-1940. Earlier to that also there were many- as many as 15- Lories in the films right from film Radhe Shyam aka Zulm E Kans-1932, in which Devki (Phool kumari) sings a Lori for her child (Shri krishna), asking him not to cry loudly, lest Kans will come and kill him. -” so ja tu mere lal chu ke se, voh Paapi aa jaye”. Then there was ” Dheere dheere aa re Badal” sung by Amirbai and Arunkumar in film Kismet-1943. Many more Lories subsequently became popular, but today’s Lori was more popular and famous.

Film Naya Sansar was produced by Darshan Malhotra for his own banner Shri krishna Films. It was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. This was a rare occasion when Nanabhai Bhatt directed a Social film. Normally he was equated with B and C grade action and Mythological films only.

Director Nanabhai Bhatt ( 12-6-1915 to 24-4-1999). He was a director in many films.He directed mostly Mythological and stunt films only. Nanabhai was born as Yashwant ( pet name – Batuk) at Porbandar. Since he was the younger one he was called Nanabhai ( opposite to Motabhai-elder brother). This name continued till the end. His father was a doctor. After matriculation, he went to Mumbai in 1934, where his elder brother Balwant Bhatt was working. Balwant started with Imperial,shifted to Sagar and now was with Prakash pictures of Vijay and Shankar Bhatt. He got Nanabhai a job as Sound Recordist.Soon he graduated as Production Executive.He also wrote several screenplays.

In 1942 he directed “Muqabala”, for Homi Wadia, as Batuk Bhatt. Homi Wadia became his good friend. When Homi established his own Basant Pictures, Nanabhai joined him and directed his “Hunterwali ki Beti”-43, with Nadia again. He also did mauj, Jee Haan, Chaalis Karod etc. He directed about 50 films of various genres like Stunts, Mythologicals,crime, social, costume etc.

Nanabhai’s first wife was Hemlata. He also married Shirin banu, his Heroine of few films. To circumvent the Bigamy law, he married her in a Temple and that too in the presence of Hemlata ! He had 3 children from Hemlata and 6 from Shirin. Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt are from Shirin. His children and grandchildren married in different religions.Thus his big family was an example of Secularism ! In addition to 9 children Nanabhai also produced 20 films under his own Deepak Pics and Gautam Chitra !

FILMOGRAPHY OF NANABHAI BHATT: 1942: Muqabala; 1943:Hunterwali Ki Beti; Mauj; 1945: Chalis Karod; 1946: Maa Baap Ki Laaj; 1947: Meerabai; 1949: Shaukeen; Veer Ghatotkach; Sudhaar; 1950: Hamara Ghar; Janmashthami; Veer Babruwahan; 1951: Lakshmi Narayan; Daman; Lav Kush; Ram Janma; 1952: Apni Izzat; Baghdad; Sinbad the Sailor; 1954: Toote Khilone; Watan; 1956: Kismet; 1957: Mr X; Ustad; 1958: Chaalbaaz; Son of Sinbad; 1959: Bazigar; Daaka; Kangan; Madam XYZ; Naya Sansar; 1960: Lal Qila; Police Detective; Zimbo Comes to Town; 1961: Teen Ustad; 1962: Baghdad Ki Raatein; Rocket Girl; 1963: Alapiranthavan; Bhootnath; Cobra Girl; 1964: Samson; 1965: Adhi Raat Ke Baad; Bekhabar; 1966: Shankar Khan; 1967: Arabian Nights; 1968: Jung Aur Aman; 1974: Jeevan Rekha; 1975: Balak Aur Jaanwar; 1976: Dharti Mata; 1981: Gajara Maru; 1982: Jaya Parvati Vrat.( Thanks to Harish Raghuwanshi ji and Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema for some information.).

The music was by Chitragupt and the film cast was Jayashree Gadkar, pradeep kumar, nanda dhumal, Tuntun, Sundar, Shammi, majnu and dancers Sheila Vaz, Sai Subbulakshmi and Kamla Laxman. The heroine Jayashree Gadkar was a very popular and busy actress in marathi cinema. I was surprised to learn that she had acted in 73 hindi films. Despite this number, she was not famous in Hindi films because she got only B and C grade action and Mythological films in Hindi.

Jayshree Gadkar (21 February 1942 – 29 August 2008) was a noted Marathi and Hindi movie actress and a star of Marathi cinema from the 1950s up to the 1980s.

Jayshree was born into a Konkani-speaking family at Kanasgiri (Sadashivgad) near Karwar in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, India. She married Bal Dhuri, a theatre actor best known for his portrayal of Dashratha in Ramanand Sagar’s TV serial, Ramayana (where Jayashree herself played his wife, Kaushalya). She also published an autobiography, Ashi Mi Jayshri.

She began her career as a child dance artist. She entered films as a tamasha dancer in movies. Her first role was that of a group dancer in V. Shantaram’s Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje in 1955, which featured Sandhya as the leading lady. Later, well known Marathi film Director Dinkar D Patil cast her in a small role with dance in his Marathi film Disat Tasa Nasat, opposite Raja Gosavi. This was followed by Sangtye Aika, a tamasha-based movie which was the first in which she played a leading role. This helped her gain fame and recognition and she started doing heroine roles. She eventually became one of the most successful and prolific heriones in the history of the Marathi film industry.

Many remember her for the famous song Bugdi mazi saandli ga jata sataryala. But Jayshree Gadkar was much more than that. She was not only a versatile and accomplished actress but the face of Marathi cinema in its golden era. This paved her way into mainstream Marathi cinema.

Later, both Raja Gosavi and Jayshree gave many hits as a pair, like Aaliya Bhogasi [her first film], Utavla Navara, Yala Jeevan Aise Nav, Awaghachi Sansar and Paishacha Paus. Gath Padli Thakathaka was her first major role. Jayashree got a lot of success as a heroine in movies based on tamasha and lavni, the trend at the time.

Her film Saangtye (1959) ran for 132 weeks in a theater. Her terrific dance performance in Bugdi mazi saandli ga became a craze among Marathi viewers. She was paired with the most popular heroes of the time like Suryakant (Pancharati, Rangpanchmi, Vaijayanta) and Arun Sarnike (Sawal Maza Aika, Ek Gav baara Bhangadi, Gangaulan).

Manini was a turning point in her career. She was paired with Chandrakant Gokhle. She went on to act with his son Vikram Gokhle too, in films like Utavla Navra and Subhdra Haran.

Gadkar also acted in historical movies like Mohityaanchi Manjula and Shahir Parshuram. She won many accolades and awards at the national and state level. She was also felicitated with the state government’s V Shantaram Purskar, Gadima Purskar, P Savlaram Purskar and many more. She married co-star Bal Dhuri in 1975, and directed two films, Sasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu.

Jayshree acted in about 250 films over a period of four decades. Her filmography was varied and included a rich repertoire of tamasha stories as also mythologicals in addition to socials and love stories.

In later years, Jayshree turned film director. Her directorial efforts include Saasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu. She also acted in Ramanand Sagar’s TV Series Ramayana, as Kaushalya (mother of Rama) along with her husband Bal Dhuri, who was Dasharath (father of Rama). Her home is adorned with the photo of both in Ramayana costume. Her Autobiography Ashi Me Jayshree was published in 1986. Gadkar had received awards for her part in the films Manini, Vaijantha, Sawaal Majha Aika! and Saadhi Mansa.

Surprisingly, Jayashree Gadkar had acted in as many as 73 Hindi films. Her first film was Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje-55 and the last film was Lav kush-97. However another film which was delayed came in 2009 was Jai jai Santoshi Maa. (Thanks to wiki, rediff.com, muVyz, HFGK and my notes).

Let us now enjoy the sweet lori from this film.

Hullo Atuldom

Mangte Chungneijang Mary Kom (born 24 November 1982) is an Indian amateur boxer, politician, and incumbent Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha. She is the only female to win the World Amateur Boxing Championship six times, the only female boxer to have won a medal in each one of the first seven World Championships, and the only boxer (male or female) to win eight World Championship medals. Nicknamed Magnificent Mary, she is the only Indian female boxer to have qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics, competing in the flyweight (51 kg) category and winning a bronze medal.

She had also been ranked as the world’s No. 1 female light-flyweight by the International Boxing Association (amateur) (AIBA). She became the first Indian female boxer to win a gold medal in the Asian Games in 2014 at Incheon, South Korea and is the first Indian female boxer to win gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. She is also the only boxer to become Asian Amateur Boxing Champion for a record six times. She was awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second highest civilian award, in 2020. She is also a recipient of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award in 2009 and Arjuna award in 2003.

Born as the eldest child, in Manipur, to parents who were tenant farmers, Mary Kom had her schooling at various schools of the Churachandpur district of Manipur. She was participated in all kinds of athletic events specially javelin throw and 400 metres running. She was among the youngsters who were inspired by Dingko Singh, 1998 Bangkok Asian Games Gold medal winner in Boxing and a fellow Manipuri. She switched from athletics to Boxing but kept it a secret from her father who was an ex-wrestler. The family got to know of her involvement in Boxing when her photo appeared in a newspaper when she won the state championship in 2000. Mary Kom is married to footballer Karung Onkholer (Onler) and has three sons including twins. She resumed her training and went back to her winning ways after the birth of her first two children.
(All the above information I have extracted from Wikipedia)

There was a biographical film on her life in 2014 where Priyanka Chopra enacted the role of Mary Kom. The movie had many lesser known actors playing her husband, coach, family etc. Only Shishir Sharma, who played the National Level coach, was the other known face. Even the music composers- Shashi Suman and Shivamm Pathak- were new along with the lyricists Sandip Ssingh and Prashant Ingole. The movie was directed by Omung Kumar and produced jointly by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom18 Motion Pictures. The movie was decent and showed incidents in a cinematic way. So I would suggest that anyone who sees the movie should not complain that details shown is not as it happened in Mary Kom’s life.

How did I land on this movie? Well I was thinking up a post on Priyanka Chopra for her birthday as she turns a year older on 18th July. I was going through her filmography and found that she had sung a few songs in her career which began in 2002 in a Tamil film and 2003 in the Sunny Deol- Preity Zinta starrer ‘Hero: Love Story of a Spy’.

She was Miss World 2000. She has done a whole of gamut of characters including a negative shaded Sonia Kapoor in ‘Aitraaz’ in 2004 for which she got a lot of critical acclaim and nominations/ awards as Best supporting actress and Best performance in a Negative Role. Priyanka has also won the National award for her performance in ‘Fashion’ (2008). If I may add she also managed to find a footing on American Television in the series ‘Quantico’ in 2015.

The song with today’s post is the one she has sung in her own voice. I haven’t seen ‘Mary Kom’ completely so I don’t know if the video accompanying the song is how it happens in the movie or whether the video uploaded on YouTube is a cleverly stitched affair.

Happy Birthday Piggy Chops (a nickname she got during the shoot of BluffMaster! in 2005)

Hullo Atuldom

“Ek Hi Raasta” (1956) was a movie that was produced and directed by B.R.Chopra with story-screenplay- dialogue written by Pt. Mukhram Sharma. Its songs were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Hemant Kumar who had Ravi as assistant and Yash Chopra was assistant to B R Chopra.

This is a movie which I saw only recently. It is popular as a movie on widow remarriage. But it dealt with a lot more.

It showed the young lady’s problems after her remarriage. It showed that the lady had a problem getting her son to accept the new man in her life as his father in spite of the new father being his own father’s boss and friend as also the little one’s. The movie tried to find the mental challenges a little boy faces when he is not told the whole truth regarding his father’s death. There are more complexities when the lady gives birth to a baby from her second marriage. The little boy leaves his foster father’s home with his infant brother in search of his father and mother. There are some tense moments (I was on the edge of my seat) before the movie comes to a close.

Daisy Irani (credited as Raja alias Roop Kumar in the movie’s titles) was simply brilliant. And who better to play the young mother than Meena Kumari.
Meena Kumari may have been typecast as a tragedy queen but there have been movies where she has shown her comic timing as in “Azaad”; “Mem Sahib”; “Miss Mary” etc. This movie too had comic moments between Sunil Dutt, Daisy Irani and Meena Kumari. There are also scenes that show her dancing capabilities.
This movie had eight songs and the blog has five of them. Two of the songs are in the same video on YouTube maybe because they follow each other in the movie with a very small dialogue in between.

Song Date of posting
Chali gori pee ke milan ko chali 31 January 2009
Saaanwle salone aaye din bahaar ke 21 April 2009
Bade bhaiyya laaye hain London se chhori 11 April 2012
Chamka ban kar aman ka taara 15 august 2012
Bekas ki aabroo ko neelaam kar ke chhoda 27 November 2012

The above are the songs from “Ek Hi Raasta” that are on the blog. The last post was in November of 2012. Don’t know how the movie has missed being YYIIPPEEEED. This post hopes to take it one step closer.

Meena Kumari was barely 38 when she bid goodbye to this world in 1972. Unbelievable that it is 49 years ago. Paying tribute to this uniquely beautiful lady who had a sweet voice too.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, the first part of the song being in Hemant Kumar’s voice. It shows the young mother trying to forget her pain and put her son to sleep and how both of them are missing the father.


Song-So jaa nanhe mere tu to so jaa(Ek Hi Raasta)(1956) Singers-Hemant Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

bhola bachpan
dukhi jawaani
lambi sooni raahon mein
nikle dard liye manzil ka
do khaamosh nigaahon mein
kaun kahe raahi ko
kitni door kahaan tak jaana hai
jeewan ki sunsaan dagar mein
kab tak thokar khaana hai

so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

jaagne ko pade hai
abhi din tere
tu toh so ja
so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
kho ja sapnon mein
tu mere aansoo na gin
tera nanha sa dil
mera gham kyun kare
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja aa

mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
aansuon ki toh ab hai meri zindagi
jaagna meri taqdeer hai baaware
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

Ten years later, two of the five movies are YIPPEED whereas three movies are still eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (24 November 2020).

One movie, viz “Subah Ka Taara”(1954) was taken up in this challenge earlier today.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.The list of songs of the movie, in the sequence given in HFGK, is as follows:-

Song Posted On
Badlegi, ye duniya ik din badlegi
Jeenewaale o matwaale zindagi se pyaar kar 24.07.2018

“Sanskaar”(1952) had made its debut in the blog ten years ago on this date. Today, here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

Only the audio of the song is available. Lyrics leaves no doubt in the mind that it is a lullaby song. This lullaby for some reasons has been forgotten. It certainly sounds like it belongs to the category of memorable lullabies created in Hindi movies.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the puicturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Today’s song is from a film with an unusual story-Ferry-1954.

The story of the film was written by Dhruv Chatterjee, dialogues were by Akhtar Ul Imaan and the screenplay was done by the Producer and Director of the film – Hemen Gupta. His entire family was involved in this film. Wife Ratna Gupta sang a song in the film and his daughter Baby Bula acted in the film. This Baby Bula became Archana, when she grew up to be a Heroine in her debut film Umang-70. Next film was Buddha Mil Gaya-71 and her third and last film was Anokha Daan-72. After this she left films, married her classmate Yogesh Motwani and settled in life. For some time, she was doing Fabric business also.

The lead pair of this film was Dev Anand and Geeta Bali. At this time, Dev was still uncertain as to what type of roles he fits into. His own wish was to be a Romantic Hero and from the film Munimji-55 onwards, his career really took off as a Romantic hero – an image he desperately (and later on pathetically) tried to preserve in his films. When others stopped giving him films,he started producing and directing his own films, acting in it the same way he did, when he was young.

Dev Anand acted in 116 films, directed 19 films, sang in 4 films and even wrote 2 songs in film ‘Mr. Prime Minister’-2005. Prior to film Ferry-54, his films were of a variety of subjects, from musical to comedy to serious types. In the film Zalzala-52, he died on screen for the first time. The last time he died on screen was in the film Guide-65. He never liked to die on screen. It did not fit into his scheme of future planning to become a Romantic Hero. Film Tamasha-52 was a sort of comedy film and Ferry -54 was still a different type of role.

The film was a story of a widower Zamindar, Vikas (Dev), who also worked as a Government officer in a village. He has a young child-Raju (Master Babu, who became Ritesh Kumar as a grown up actor and also married actress Maushumi Chatterjee. He was the son of Hemant Kumar), who is curious about his mother. His father has told him that she has gone beyond the river and lives in a big white palace. The child hopes that one day his mother will surely come back to him. So, he, along with his next door friend Minu (Baby Bula) goes to the River bank every day, expecting his mother to arrive in the Ferry some day.

Once when Vikas has gone to the city for work, a young girl is found in the river. She is unconscious. Villagers bring her to the nearest house of Vikas. Doctor is called. The girl survives. She is Juhi-a tawayaf’s daughter (Geeta Bali). She stays in that house. The boy Raju develops a bond with her and she too starts loving the boy. However the Chachi of Vikas, who looks after the household does not like it. When Vikas comes back, he learns everything. When she tells her story he understands that she was kidnapped as a baby and sold to the tawaif – Munnibai (Chand Burke). Munnibai tries to sell her to customers. To avoid further trouble, Juhi jumps into the river.

Due to the opposition of Chachi and the villagers, Juhi is asked to leave the house. She goes to the river to wait for the Ferry. Raju falls sick and Vikas too is uneasy. He has also developed an affinity for her. He takes Raju and rushes to the river in time to stop Juhi from boarding it . They come back to the house. Vikas finally decides to marry Juhi and Raju also gets his mother. Happy ending.

Film Ferry was released first in Bombay at the Swastik cinema on 8-10-1954 and it ran only for 7 weeks. The All India response was also lukewarm. When I saw this film in Hyderabad in late October, I had liked it, but felt that the end was too hastily wound up. Maybe the length was already too much. The film had music by Hemant kumar. Like all Bangla composers, Hemant also had a ” Maajhee” song in this film (they could never resist the temptation if a river is in the film). There was a child song ( another weak point of HK), by baby Bula and Master Babu. 2 solos by Geeta Dutt and 1 by Ratna Gupta. One 2 part Mujra song by Laxmi Shankar. In addition a record for Sitar and Sarod playing was also issued. Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and his protege Nikhil Bannerjee had played them.

Director Hemen Gupta’s name will be remembered for a long time in Hindi film history for two films that he directed. One was the early era patriotic film “Anandmath”-52,based on the novel of Bankim babu,in which Hemen Gupta himself, Pradeep kumar and Hemant kumar made their debuts in Hindi films. The second film was Kabuliwala – 61, which won acclaim and a National Award too. This movie was a based on Gurudev Rabibdranath Tagore’s novel of the same name.

I was looking for information on Hemen Gupta ,but found it very difficult. As I have already said recently, getting information about southern and Bengali artistes in English, is a difficult task. When I was drawing a blank from all sources, Lady Luck smiled on me. Unexpectedly, one of my friends from the US, sent me a PDF of Hemen Gupta’s Biography and the Filmography, prepared by his own son Jayant Gupta. What a coincidence ! I was listening to a duet of Uma Devi and S.D.Batish for the film Taaksaal-56 and at the same time received most unexpectedly the authentic information on its director Hemen Gupta !!

Although the original PDF contains many pages, I have abridged and edited this Biography to suit this article. My sincere thanks to shri Jayant Guptaji and shri Salim Shah ji for this.

Hemen Gupta was born on 21-3-1912,in a middle class family in Rajasthan. His Grandfather shri Nabakumar Gupta was a big Zamindar in Dacca. Hemen’s early school and college education was done in Dacca. He joined an active political career in 1926 as a Congress worker and a freedom fighter. He was arrested in 1931 and was in jail till 1938. In the jail, he studied and completed his Master’s degree in History with Honours. He also read many books on film making and was interested in it. When he was released he joined New Theatres. He wanted to make Patriotic films but till 1946 he could not do so. He made the film Bhuli Nai in Bangla-a fiercely patriotic film which was rejected by the censors. After many obstacles it got released. He also made another patriotic film in Bangle ’42’. Both films gave him name and fame.

Shashadhar Mukherjee of Filmistan in Bombay called him with an attractive offer and Hemen came to Bombay. He wrote the screenplay and directed the film “Anandmath”-52. He took Pradeep Kumar as a Hero and Hemanta Kumar as MD- his old colleagues in Calcutta. For all the three it was a debut in Hindi films. In 1953 he started his own banner “Film trust of India”and made “Ferry”-54, a love story with Dev Anand and Geeta Bali. Again Hemanta Kumar was the MD. Hemant Kumar’s young son Ritesh played a small role in this film (Later Ritesh married the famous actress Maushami Chatterjee). Ratna Gupta,Hemen’s wife, sang songs in this film. His last film under Hemen Gupta Productions was Taaksaal-56. Meanwhile he directed Meenar in 1954.

He was a staunch nationalist and idealist who wanted to make artistic films,but the producers,distributors and the financiers did not allow him that freedom. He felt suffocated. He was fed up with the commercialism in film making and he had a difficulty in coping up with the market demands. In 1961 he directed “Kabuliwala”and won accolades and a National Award too. His last film was “Netaji Subhash chandra Bose””-1966 for producer B K Adarsha.

He wanted to resume making Bangla films. His film Ánamika’ was almost completed, when suddenly he died of brain Hemorrhage,on 1-7-1967.

He was the father of actress Archana( Buddha mil gaya-71).He directed the following films in Hindi-
Anandmath-52, Ferry-54, Meenar-54, Taaksaal-56, Raaj kamal-57, Insaaf kahan hai-59, Baabar-60, Kabuliwala-61, and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose-66.

You will also find an unusual and unknown name Chand Burke in the cast of the film. Very little is known about her. Chand Burke made her debut in Maheshwari Productions’ Kahan Gaye (1946), which Niranjan wrote and directed. They fell in love on the sets and got married in 1945. Thereafter, Chand appeared in a number of films made in Lahore, and was widely known as “the Dancing Lily of the Punjab.”

Partition and her subsequent migration to Bombay adversely affected her career. After “Hamari Manzil,” which was released in 1949, Chand Burke went into complete oblivion. It was Raj Kapoor who selected her for that important role as children’s tormentor in “Boot Polish-53,” over 200 other contestants, her screen-test convincing Raj Kapoor that she was a talented actress. Some of her well known films were Ferry-54, Basant Bahar-56, yahudi ki beti-56, Adalat-58 and Lajwanti-58.

Chand was the only one in a family of twelve brothers and sisters to have joined the films (her brother S. M. Burke, I.C.S., was a Minister to the Scandina­vian countries for Pakistan). Chand obtained judicial separation by mutual consent from her husband, writer-director Niranjan in 1954.

She was later married to Sunder Singh Bhavnani- grandfather of superstar Ranveer Singh. She is also related to Suneeta Kapoor.

She acted in about 30 films. Her last film was Pehchan-72.

Today’s song is an exceptionally sweet song – Lori – sung by Geeta Dutt. I would rate this Lori amongst her best songs and one of the best Loris of HFM ever. I am sure all the listeners will also love it. In addition to Geeta’s Lori, there is also a small video where Hemant Kumar, Baby Bula and Geeta dutt sing one line each. Enjoy….

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 18
——————————————————
30/08/2020 – Birth anniversary of Shailendra

As children’s songs go, there is a healthy dose available of such songs in hindi films especially in the 50’s and 60’s. Or rather, I should say a healthy dose of children’s songs too along with the other types of songs be it religious songs, happy go lucky masti songs, romantic songs, sad songs, club/party songs, dance/folk/stage songs, road-side tamasha songs, comic songs and the philosophical/theme songs. Not to forget the lori/lullaby songs. Good quality songs were many and all the songs were made with painstaking care. So there is nothing like finding unheard songs. They may not remain in memory some months after the actual post is done, because the memory I find is a very fickle thing. It retains the information fed to it years ago, but is rather quick to do away with recently found and heard things. This is no fault of the songs concerned.

There are iconic songs like
‘nanhe munne bachche teri mutthi mein kya hai’, “naani teri morni ko mor le gaye” and
“Lakdi ki kaathhi kaathhi pe ghodaa” to name a few.

Two of three songs song which came to mind are written by Shailendra.

Here I found a children’s song from a the film ‘Deep jalte rahe” (1959), a duet by Rafi sahab with Vijaya, composed by Roshan-to commemorate the birth anniversary today of the lyricist Shailendra. He was a fourth pillar of the one of its kind winsome foursome of Shankar-Jaikishan-Shailendra-Hasrat Jaipuri. We see these names on many famous films credits. The team could not have been the legends they are without one another. Shailendra teamed up with other music directors also with notable success. A prime example is ‘Guide” with S. D. Burman.

Shankardas Kesarilal Shailendra was born on 30th August, 1923 and died on 14th December, 1966 at the age of just 43.

He is said to have died with heartbreak after the failure ‘Teesri Kasam” at the box office, a film close to his heart, also produced by him. Life is nothing if not full of obstacles. One needs to be full of strength to cross each hurdle. What should have been just such obstacle in Shailendra’s life, making him stronger for newer journey, turned out to be his last hurray. The film is a classic on its own, and plus the songs are pearls dotting the necklace of gold. I quote from one of the songs from the film, penned by Shailendra :

sitaaron ne munh pherkar
kaha alvida humsafar
chala kaarwaan ab chalaa
aa aa
aa bhi jaa
raat dhalne lagi
ho
chaand chhupne chala
ho
aa aa bhi jaa

oofaq par khadi hai sehar
andhera hai dil mein idhar
oofaq par khadi hai sehar
ho
andhera hain dil mein idhar
wahi roz ka silsila
aa
aa bhi jaa
raat dhalne lagi
chaand chhupne chala
ho
aa aa bhi jaa

Blog Day :

4414 Post No. : 15814

Today, August 18th 2020 is 86th Birth Day of the poet, lyricist, story, screen-play and dialogue writer, producer and director, Gulzar. His presence in Hindi film industries is an assurance that lovers of Hindi films and Hindi film songs would continue to get the opportunity to watch and listen to the meaningful films and songs. I regard Gulzar Saab as an extension of what Sahir Ludhianvi left in October 1980 – a legacy of poetry in Hindi film songs.

I have already covered a substantive information about the filmy career of Gulzar saab in my articles ae hairat-e-aashiqui jagaa mat on the occasion of his 85th birth day last year and in shaam se aankh mein nami si hai, abut 5 years back. Also, there is no dearth of information on Gulzar Saab on the internet, in the print media and his website. So, I would skip this part.

What a great journey Gulzar saab has with Hindi film industry which began in early 1960s as a lyricist. He became an assistant to Bimal Roy and eventually became a director with ‘Mere Apne’ (1971). During his almost six decades in Hindi film industry, he wrote nearly 700 songs, wrote screen-play/dialogues for nearly 50 films and directed 19 films. In addition, he wrote and directed a few TV serials like ‘Mirza Ghalib’(1988), ‘Noopur’ (1990), ‘Potli Baba Ki’ (1991), ‘Tehreer Munshi Premchand Ki’ (2004) etc. He published many novels, short stories and collections of his poems. Of late, Gulzar saab has been busy with translating in Hindi, poems in regional languages from all over India for their wider dessimination.

On the occasion of 86th birth day of Gulzar Saab, I have chosen a song of a rare combination – Gulzar-Suman Kalyanpur-Shankar-Jaikishan. The song is ‘ek thhi nindiya do thhe naina’ from the film ‘Seema’ (1971). Probably, Gulzar saab got involved in writing the lyrics of a couple of songs in this film as he was the story-screen-play-dialogue writer for the film. Surendra Mohan made his debut as a director in this film. The film was produced by Sohanlal Kanwar. The story of the film is summarised below:

Seema (Simi Garewal) has lost her parents in her childhood and she has been brought up by her caring uncle (Abhi Bhattacharya). In her grown-up years, Seema develops a superstition that whoever loved her would get the same fate as her parents. She spends her time mostly alone except with a friend, Rajni (Kanchan) who tries to erase her superstition by saying that she is still alive despite Seema loving her but of no avail.

Seema’s life gets a change when she come across a charming Sunil (Kabir Bedi). But her superstition will not allow her to reciprocate his love. He convinces her to overcome her fear and they get married in a temple. Unfortunately, after few days, Sunil dies in an accident and the fear of superstition returns to Seema as she is pregnant with his child in the womb. She gives birth to Banke (Rakesh Roshan) in secrecy as the society does not know of her marriage to Sunil. The child is brought up by her maid (Chand Usmani) who is kept away from Seema’s home out of fear of losing her child. However, Seema keeps the tab over her son’s activities from a distance.

Banke grows up cosying with Chamki (Bharathi) and also trying to discover as to who his parents are. After a lot of poignant moments in the film, it is Rajni who eventually reveals to Banke that Seema is his mother and his father had died of accident. Seema embraces Banke thus giving up her superstitions.

The song under discussion is a lori which have been picturised in the film on two occasions. First, Suman Kalyanpur sings for Simi on piano. The second, Sushma Shreshta sings for the boy which is taken over by Suman Kalyanpur singing for Chand Usmani as a continuation of the lori. In the audio clip, the entire lori is sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

‘Seema’ (1971) was Jaikishan’s last film. He died while the film was in the making.

Out of the six movies represented five movies have already been covered with all their songs on the blog and they have attained ‘Yippeeeeee’ status on the blog.

That leaves us with only one movie ‘Daadi Maa-1966’, which is eligible for the blog ten year challenge today.

‘Daadi Maa-1966’ had seven songs and eight sound tracks including the ‘title music track’. All the seven songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music was composed by Roshan. Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor, Puran, Asha Bhonsle, and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Song Posted On
Usko nahin dekha hamne kabhi 27.01.2009
Jaataa hoon main mujhe ab naa bulaanaa 10.06.2010

We can see that the above three songs include two well known songs from this movie viz. Usko nahin dekha hamne kabhi and Jaataa hoon main mujhe ab naa bulaanaa. These two songs are the only songs I am familiar with and I associate these songs with the movie. I don’t remember to have listened to other songs of this movie.

Today’s song is a ‘lorie’ songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar and lip-synced on screen by Beena Rai.

“Aanchal Ke Phool”(1968) was directed by Karunesh Thakur for MRS Film production, Bombay. The movie had Sajjan, Kamini Kaushal, Jeevan, Chand Usmani, Sunder, Mohan Choti,Namrata, Jayant, Ulhas, Jagdish Raj etc. in it.

This boring tearjerker movie with an uninteresting story line had four songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the third song from “Aanchal Ke Phool”(1968) to appear in the blog. This song is a sad lullaby song. It is sung by Krishna Kalle. Naqsh llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ved Sethi.

The song is picturised on Kamini Kaushal and on kids that I am unable to identify. Sajjan is also visible playing the hapless father. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Song-Soyi hai dulhan raat ki (Aanchal Ke Phool)(1968) Singer-Krishna Kalle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Ved Sethi

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
soyi hai dulhan raat ki
maathe chanda sajaaye
tu bhi soja laadli
tohe mamta sulaaye
soyi hai dulhan raat ki
maathe chanda sajaaye

oonghe pawan
soye suman
daali ke aanchal se lipti hui
har kali so gayi
galiyon ka shor khaamosh hai
raahon ke seene pe chal chal ke
ab zindagi so gayi
moond le palken
do ghadi
nindiya roothh na jaaye
tu bhi soja laadli
tohe mamta sulaaye

ye soch le
raani tujhe
chaandi ka palna
kahaan de sakegi gareebi meri
tere liye
ye god hai
soja ke sapnon mein
le jaaye tujhko
pari neend ki
aansoo hain poori nain ki
naina kyun chhalkaaye
tu bhi soja laadli
tohe mamta sulaaye

aansu dhale deepak jale
jeevan ke andhiyaare aangan mein
phir bhi andhera hai kyun
ye raaz hum poonchhen kise
apni hi aankhon se ojhal khushi ka sawera hai kyun
soye hain bhagwan chain se
kaise koi jagaaye
tu bhi soja laadli
tohe mamta sulaaye
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
soyi hai dulhan raat ki
maathe chanda sajaaye
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm
