28th Sept 2022 marks the first birthday of Lata Mangeshkar without her physical presence in this world. Due to old age and couple of hospitalizations at the fag end of her life, her passing away on that fateful day of 06th Feb 2022 was not really shocking so to say.

But then, an emptiness befell upon music lovers all over the world. It was as if a part of our lives was lost forever. It was a different kind of mourning; one of helplessness and the bare truth that such a soul would never be born again. And such is a gargantuan legacy of work left behind that one can only sit back and wonder how an individual could achieve so much in a single life. It is not about the span-life of her singing or the number of songs that she has sung, but of the utmost dedication, sincerity to her career and the love of the masses that she received.

Calling her the greatest singer ever would arguably be an understatement. Love for her voice knows no religion, caste, creed or man made international boundaries. For her voice touched the innermost recesses of human souls. The voice that she has left behind has amalgamated with the atmosphere and will continue to regale music lovers for generations to come.

Adjectives, honorific titles, awards are altogether too, a pale shadow compared to what she has achieved and left behind. Her work and career encompassed the entire gamut of technology from shellac records to the present cloud technology.

Blessed are we for breathing the same air, sharing an epoch and a planet with Lata Mangeshkar.

There have been many biographical posts, anecdotes, series etc. on Lata Mangeshkar on this blog. In fact, in the recently concluded long series concluded by Atul ji covers her entire singing career from first to her last song sung in HFM. Also, her wiki page is quite elaborate if one has to understand the entire spectrum of her life and career in acting, singing, composing, production etc.

There were two aspects that I wanted to include in this post, and I have to profusely apologize to readers that I could manage neither due to other priorities and paucity of time.

One was to put forth a table listing her very first one or two dozen songs irrespective of whether she sang for Hindi / Marathi or for herself / playback. There are many blogs, articles, interviews and information out there on the net containing these facts, but to have it on a well-prepared table with her songs in chronological order and then get it vetted by veterans in the field was what I was looking for.

The second was to present my interest and limited knowledge and on her association with various composers and singers. There is so much that I wish to keep on writing about her Hindi film songs. Her pronunciation of the word “hum” in the title song of ‘Barsaat’ (1949) and again the finest way she sings the word “chaar” in the duet with Shankar Dasgupta in ‘Girls’s School’ (1949) amazes me to no end. That she could so effortlessly empathize with the situation of the song on screen in her voice modulation in 1940’s itself speaks volumes as to where she was headed in her career.

Why she has a solitary song for Gyan Dutt? Why Kishore Kumar used her sparingly in his compositions? Will the solo song from the film ’26 January’ (1956) ever be heard by music lovers are some of the points that I wanted to touch upon. Let me see, how soon, I can put these thoughts on the blog.

Her association with the many composers, singers, lyricists, actors etc. can be discussed with no end. Naming a few will be a gross injustice to the many others that she sang for. I shall hence stop myself from even attempting to do so.

Coming to the song to be posted for today’s occasion and considering that most of her songs in the golden period have already been covered on the blog, I made a rather strange request to the editors to kindly offer me a good song for the occasion. I know there are many more songs yet to be covered, but then again due to time constraints, I thought, I will make this new request. 🙂

A sad, solo from late 40’s or early 50’s was what I requested for.

And guess what?

Sudhir ji promptly sent me a gem of a sad solo from 1949. My goodness! Of all the years, 1949, the year Lata Mangeshkar stamped herself as the undisputed queen of playback. Music lovers know the importance of the year 1949 and the abundant flow of melody in that particular year.

Thank you, Sudhir ji and Atul ji. I could not have asked for anything better.

So here is the gem from 1949 film ‘Rakhi’ in the mellifluous voice of one and only Lata Mangeshkar.

Wishing her a very happy birthday, I am sure the heavens and the Gods are more blessed to have Hema Hardikar aka Lata Mangeshkar amongst their midst.

Song – O Rooth Jaane Waale, Mera Qasoor Kya Hai  (Rakhi) (1949) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Saarshaar Sailaani, MD – Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai
kyon pher leen nigaahen
kyon pher leen nigaahen
kyon mujhko gham diya hai
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

fariyaad kar rahi hai
sehmi hui jawaani
kisko sunaaun ae dil
dukh dard ki kahaani
apne nahin jab apne
gairon se kya gila hai
o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

beete huye dinon ki
baaton ko yaad kar ke
guzri hui suhaani
raaton ko yaad kar ke
main dil ko ro rahi hoon
dil mujhko ro raha hai
o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

din raat kha raha hai
gham teri berukhi ka
nazdeek aa raha hai
anjaam zindagi ka
tu hi bata ke aise
jeene mein kya maza hai. . .

ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है
क्यों फेर लीं निगाहें
क्यों फेर लीं निगाहें
क्यों मुझको ग़म दिया है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

फरियाद कर रही है
सहमी हुई जवानी
किसको सुनाऊँ ए दिल
दुख दर्द की कहानी
अपने नहीं जब अपने
ग़ैरों से क्या गिला है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

बीते हुये दिनों की
बातों को याद कर के
गुज़री हुई सुहानी
रातों को याद कर के
मैं दिल को रो रही हूँ
दिल मुझको रो रहा है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

दिन रात खा रहा है
ग़म तेरी बेरुखी का
नज़दीक आ रहा है
अञ्जाम ज़िंदगी का
तू ही बता के ऐसे
जीने में क्या मज़ा है॰ ॰ ॰

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the costume/stunt film ‘Jungle King’ (1959). The film was made by Artists United, Bombay (the name reminds me of the famous Hollywood company ‘United Artists’). It was produced by a group calling itself ‘Four X’ (for reasons best known to them) composed of Morris, Akbar, Asghar and Haider. The director was Masood and the music was by the pair of Bipin-Babul. The cast was very interesting. It consisted of Shaaga, Haaydu (what strange names! Never heard them !!), Sheila Ramani, Anwar, Majnu, Kamal Mehra, Heera Sawant, Tun Tun, Kabban Mirza, Dambe, Doud, Badshah, Rampuri Mehmood, Elephant Laxmi and many others.

I have never heard such strange names of actors in any film. Shaaga, Haaydu, Dambe, Rampuri Mehmood ? Where did they get these people with such names ? That way, earlier also I have come across some queer names in stunt films, like Bajarbattoo, Chemist, Dhondu, Babu Fatty, Gareeb Nawab etc. Few years back, Dr. Surjit Singh ji had downloaded 7,000 names of actors who acted in Hindi films from 1931 to 2000, from an internet site, which is extinct now. He had put it on the RMIM forum from where I downloaded the list. But in the intervening times, with me changing my Laptop several times till today, the list was lost in transit from one Laptop to the next one. The point is there were many funnier names of actors in that list.

Old time artistes had no means of publicity like today. With TV, Social Media, WA, Fb, newspapers, glossy magazines etc, publicity is easier for modern actors. Old time actors were forgotten as soon as they stopped appearing in films. Today’s film ‘Jungle King’ (1959) is a special film because in its cast are 2 old time actors who were forgotten totally with the times. One was a heroine of the then leading heroes, who fell on bad times and accepted whatever films came her way. But wisely she got married and spent a rich and comfortable retired life. The other one was an occasional singer, who held an honorable post in All India Radio and his songs became a choice of critics in those days. Let us know more about them.

One was actress Sheila Ramani,  a forgotten name today, but most of us will remember her in Navketan’s ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954) where she was cast as Anglo-Indian club dancer – Sylvie. I also remember her as the leading lady in ‘Funtoosh’ (1956), also from the banner of Navketan. Sheila was born on 2-4-1931, in Karachi. She was selected as Miss Mussoorie in 1948 and judged ‘Miss Simla’ in 1950. She made her debut as Champa, the femme fatale of ‘Badnam’ (1952), and revealed herself as a danseuse of charm in ‘Anand Math’ (1952). She was one of the few Sindhi actresses besides Sadhana, who made it big in Bollywood. She was mostly seen as an upper class mod girl in the 50s, a role she enacted to perfection all through that swinging era in films like V Shantaram’s ‘Teen Batti Char Raasta’ (1953), Sheikh Mukhtar’s ‘Mangu’ (1954), ‘Meenar’ (1954), ‘Railway Platform’ (1955), and ‘Funtoosh’ (1956).

Her uncle Sheikh Latif alias Lachchu was a famous Pakistani producer who produced films like ‘Pathan’ (1955), ‘Khizan Kai Baad’ (1955), ‘Darbar-e-Habib’ (1956) etc. Sheila visited Karachi – Pakistan on the request of her uncle, to play the lead role in Pakistani film ‘Anokhi’ (1956). The film was based on Hollywood’s ‘Fabulous Senorita’ (1952). “Gari Ko Chalana Babu, Zara Halkey Halkey Halkey, Zara Dil Ka Jaam Na Chhalkey” sung by Zubeda Khanum was the popular song from the film which did modestly good business in Pakistan. The movie’s great music was composed jointly by Timir Baran (a Bengali who came from India for this purpose) and Hassan Latif. Sheila went back to India and remained as a middle-of-the-range performer in Bombay films. In the later part of her career, she was reduced to obscure films with titles that sounded like ‘Jungle King’ (1959), and ‘The Return of Superman’ (1960) – one of the last films composed by Anil Biswas. In all, she acted in 24 films. Her last film was ‘Awaara Ladki’ (1967).

Sheila was very fond of sports, especially football and swimming. Ballroom dancing was a virtual addiction for her and she used to go out dancing as often as she could. Sheila was 5 feet four inches tall, and was so fastidious that any dress she would wear won’t be repeated for six months to come at least.

According to her son Rahul Cowasji, she retired from acting in 1962 and married  Jal Edi Cowasji on 31st March 1963. Part of her family that remained in Pakistan converted to Islam. She was a Hindu. She used to live in Mumbai with her husband Jal Cowasji (President of Bombay Dyeing) till 1981. They moved to Khartoum for 3 years and then to Sri Lanka for 3 years. After her husband’s death in 1984 she migrated to Australia on her own in the late 80’s and lived in Sydney and Surfers Paradise until health problems required her to return to India in the new millennium.  She used to live in her husband’s ancestral home in Mhow, near Indore (MP). She was frail and bed ridden for a few years before her death on 15-7- 2015.

Her favorite Hindi film of her career was ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954). Sheila was also the leading lady of India’s first Sindhi film after partition – ‘Abana’ (1958), in which young Baby Sadhna played her younger sister’s role.  [Thanks to Cineplot for some of the information in this Biosketch].

The other one was an  AIR announcer and an anchor. He was also a singer and an actor for a few films. His name was Kabban Mirza. Kabban Mirza’s name is known to very few people. He is one of those people who appeared like a comet and disappeared like a lightning. In his short stint with Hindi films, he acted in 2 films – ‘Jungle King’ (1959) (he was also the Assistant Director for this film) and ‘Murad’ (1961). He sang 1 song in the film ‘Captain Azad’ (1964) and 2 songs in the film ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983). He claimed to have sung a song “Is Pyar Ki Basti Mein” in a film called ‘Sheeba’,  without getting credited. No film with the name ‘Sheeba’ is traceable, but a song with the same mukhda is found in the film ‘Jungle King’ (1959), credited to Suman Kalyanpur and Babul with chorus. We don’t find a third voice in this song. It is possible that the film ‘Sheeba’ was left incomplete and the same song was used in the film ‘Jungle King’ (1959) with Babul as the male singer.

The question is why Kabban Mirza is remembered with such a meager contribution to film acting and singing ? The answer is because of his deep voice. Mirza who briefly flirted with the film world, left a lasting impression with his songs for producer-director Kamal Amrohi’s epic, ‘Razia Sultan’.

The songs — “Aayee Zanzeer Ki Jhankar Khuda Khair Kare” and “Tera Hijr Mera Naseeb Hai” — rendered in Mirza’s deep voice, were filmed on the slave-warrior character of Yaqut played by Dharmendra in the film.

Mirza was picked out after Amrohi auditioned dozens of singers in his search for a unique voice to suit the character of the slave-warrior. The film’s music director, Khayyam, reminisces: ‘‘Kamal Saab was a perfectionist. He called over 50 singers for a voice test, but remained unconvinced. Then someone suggested Kabban Mirza who was also a popular nauhaa khan (one who sings elegy for Imam Hussain’s martyrdom during Muharram). Kamal Saab’s search ended with Mirza.’’

Overnight his popularity soared. Mirza got a few more singing offers, including for BR Chopra’s ‘Nikaah’ (1982), but his preoccupation with radio came in the way. ‘‘His voice had a unique bass, unheard of in the industry,’’ says poet-lyricist Nida Fazli who penned a song for Razia Sultan.

Kabban Mirza was born in 1937 in Hapur, Uttar Pradesh. He belonged to the  Siddi community. This is a community that migrated from Central Asia/North Africa, during the time when India was ruled by Muslim dynasties. These people were brought in as slaves in the courts of the rulers of Delhi, Lucknow and other kingdoms in North India. They are also known as ‘Habshi’. It is curiously incidental that Yaqut, the slave in the court of Razia Sultan, also belonged to this ‘Habsh’ community. It sounds almost providentially ordained that the two people, separated by more than seven centuries – the original persona, and the singer who would sing for that historical character in a film, belong to the same original ethnic community. (Another very well known personality of Indian cinema belongs to this community – His real name was SYED HASSAN ALI ZAIDI. His family used to call him MIJJAN Miyan and screen name was Kumar, the actor who played the role of the sculptor in the film ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960)).

The child in Kabban took to music and singing very early. He was drawn to the ‘nauhaa’ style of singing – the traditional ‘marsiaa’ and ‘taaziadaari’ singing on the solemn occasion of Muharram. It is noted that the child Kabban used to practice his singing with his head inserted inside a ‘matka’ (earthen pot).

As he grew up, he was recognized as a very impressive and inspiring ‘nauha-rubaan’ – a singer of traditional Muharram renderings. His voice caught the attention, and he got his break with All India Radio, in the music department. This phase of his life is not well documented, no details are available about his training in classical music and who his teachers were. But his depth of knowledge about the detailed nuances of classical ragas is well acknowledged in his presentations of the radio program ‘Sangeet Sarita’. He anchored this program for many years. He would play select film songs based on Hindustani classical music, and then described in great detail the classical basis, the raag and its variations, the sur, the taal, and their interplay. He garnered a good measure of fan following for this program.

He had joined AIR in Lucknow, but he was soon transferred to Bombay station, where he would take on the anchor role for such noteworthy programs as ‘Hawa Mahal’, ‘Sangeet Sarita’ and ‘Chhaaya Geet’, for many years. There is some mention that he was approached to sing for music director Ravi in BR Chopra’s ‘Nikaah’ (1982), but apparently his association with AIR and his popularity as the anchor of mainline radio programs, came in the way of his further association with the world of films.

The two songs of ‘Razia Sultan’ became very popular in their time – the record sales were impressive. But as destiny would have it, this rise in popularity was accompanied by the most unfortunate health news for Kabban Mirza. He was detected with cancer of the larynx. This was a stroke of extreme bad luck from which he could never recover. His voice and his throat were his vital and essential assets. And that is where fate struck its most unkind blow. He went into prolonged treatment, but eventually he had to be operated upon. The year was 1993. He recovered from surgery and returned home. Thankfully, the malady seemed to be in remission, but then never got to use his voice for any serious and significant assignments.

Mirza, who was admitted to Jaslok Hospital on May 9 after he complained of cough and neck pain, came back home minus his once-famous voice. The tracheotomy tube inserted in his windpipe allows him to breathe, not speak. ‘‘He was diagnosed with throat cancer and treated 10 years ago also. But its relapse has shattered us. He won his bread and our happiness through his voice. Now he has lost that very voice,’’ bemoans Rifat, Mirza’s daughter.

The respite from the physical predicament lasted for a decade. The problem reared its painful head once again, and in May/June 2003, he had to undergo another surgery that resulted in the removal of a significant part of his larynx, leaving him practically with no sound in his throat. His vocal communications were reduced to very limited rasping utterances at the best. This regrettable fate for someone who had once been honored with the Golden Voice Award by the AIR. He reportedly died in June 2006.

If we see the total songs posted in the month of September 2012 the figure was 207, which gives us an average of 6.9 songs per day or almost 7 songs per day were posted during the month. On 20th September 2012 the blog clocked eight songs. Out of these eight seven are from films and one is from NFS album. Four of the movies have already been Yippeee’d on the blog. That gives us three movies viz. ‘Matlabi Duniya’ (1961), ‘Ham Do Daaku’ (1967) and ‘Naya Daur’ (1978) from which we can discuss a song today.

I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Naya Daur’ (1978). When I saw Prakash ji’s email sending the lyrics of the today’s song, I immediately decided to take up this song as it is sung by Kishore Kumar, and I had not heard it earlier or even if I had listened it I had forgotten it.

The movie ‘Naya Daur’ (1978) had made its debut on the blog with its first song on 20.09.2012 on the blog. That means this movie has today completed its ten-year run on the blog. So far, two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog as mentioned in the above table. Today’s song is the third song of this movie on the blog.

‘Naya Daur’ (1978) was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for United Movie Arts, Bombay. It had Rishi Kapoor, Bhavna Bhatt, Danny Dengzongpa, Farida Jalal, Manda Puri, Paintal, Poornima Ranjeet, Om Prakash, Ghanshyam Roheda, Major Anand, Sharat Saxena, Haider Chaudhary, Vishwa Mehra, Kamal Rai, Leena Das, and Oscar. Dr Shreeram Lagoo, Sapru and Shivraj make a special appearance in this movie. Shashi Kiran and Pinchoo Kapoor make a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.01.1978.

This movie had four songs penned by Anand Bakshi. Music for this movie was composed by RD Burman. Here is the list of the songs appearing in this movie-

Sl. No. Song-Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Chalo Kahin Aur Chalte Hain Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle 20.09.2012
02 Mujhe Doston Tum Galey Se Lagaa Lo Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Danny Dengzongpa* 25.02.2022
03 Paani Ke Badley Pee Kar Sharaab Kishore Kumar, Danny Dengzongpa
04 O Paise Waalon Bade Insaanon Kishore Kumar Being discussed today

I have not watched this movie (and it seems to be unavailable on internet as of now) so can’t say much about it. I would request knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us listen to today’s song now which is sung by Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip synced by Rishi Kapoor. Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Bhavna Bhatt, Madan Puri and many others.

Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi, and the catchy and entertaining music is composed by RD Burman. Kishore Kumar has sung this song in his characteristic style and gusto which makes this song enjoyable and hummable. . .

As mentioned above lyrics for the today’s song have been sent by our dear Prakash ji.

Over to the song now. . .

Today’s song is a melodious song from a less known film on a well known historical name – ‘Panna Dai’ (1945). The film was made by Pradeep Pictures, Bombay. Directed by Ram Daryani, its MD was Gyan Dutt and the songs were written by Dina Nath Madhok. It had a very sparkling star cast of Durga Khote, Chandra Mohan, Meenakshi, Mubarak, M Ismail, Master Vithal, Gope, Gulab, Leela Mishra, Nana Saheb Phatak, Azuri, Baby Nalini, Ratan Piya and many others in a long list suitable for such a historical movie.

When silent films started in India in the first decade of the previous century, by the time the films became an All India attraction in subsequent years, people were attracted to this new medium of entertainment. The Radio had also started during this period – around 1923 or so – first in Bombay, then Calcutta and finally in Madras in 1924. The organised broadcasting started on 23-7-1927. However it was only audio entertainment and available only in bigger towns and with wealthy people. Films gave the visual satisfaction and from 1931 films became ‘talkie’, providing audio and visual pleasures. No wonder this medium became popular more quickly. With portable equipment, films reached nooks and corners of the entire country.

As the talkie films started, well known artistes in different fields like literature, singing, music performers and stage actors wanted to join this industry. This applied to even the most respected and well known people. The industry was also keen to get such well known artistes and hence some such people did join the industry- albeit for a short period.

Initially, Bombay being the major center for films, the local famous artistes from the Marathi community represented a sizable number in this industry. No wonder then that the famous and well known authors, stage actors, singers and musicians contributed their share in films. Famous stage actors like Bal Gandharva, Bapurao Pendharkar, Hirabai Badodekar, Sureshbabu Mane, Govindrao Tembe, PL Deshpande, GN Joshi etc. sang, gave music and acted. Writers like VS Khandekar, NS Phadke, PK Atre, HN Apte etc. wrote stories, songs and screenplays in Marathi and Hindi films.

It was not only the Marathi bigwigs from stage and literature but even from the Hindi and Urdu famous artistes came to films to give their bits. People like Narayan Prasad Betab, Pt Sudarshan, Agha Hashra Kashmiri, Pt Narottam Vyas, Amritlal Nagar, Kanhaiyalal Munshi, Safdar Aah Sitapuri, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Jigar Muradabadi etc. did some work in films.

From Gujarat too such contributors like Master Vasant, Raghunath Bramhabhatt etc. came and from Bengal a host of writers and stage actors flooded the film industry. (Names of all language artistes are only indicative and not exhaustive).

All these ‘outsiders’ contributed, enriched the films and left for their own respective fields again. One such highly respected and well known stage actor from Marathi dramas was Nana Saheb Phatak. He acted only in 4 Hindi films including today’s film ‘Panna Dai’ (1945). (Bal Gandharva did only 2 Hindi films). Here is a short bio data of Nana Saheb Phatak. it is very difficult to get such information.

‘Nana Saheb’ Phatak was a great actor in Marathi theater who left a memorable impression with his deep voice and powerful dialogue interpretation. Born Gopal Govind Phatak on June 24, 1899, he was drawn to the stage at a very young age. He is believed to have been initiated into Marathi theatre through the play ‘Raksha Bandhan’, in which he played the role of Giridhar. One of his earliest performances was in Yashwant Tipnis’s ‘Matsyagandha’ in 1919 as the old king Shantanu.

With the help of his guru, Shri Ganpatrao Joshi, a veteran actor popularly known as ‘The Garrick of Maharashtra’, Phatak reached the height of his career during his time with the Lalitkaladarsha Natak Mandali – from 1921 to 1936. The Lalitkaladarsha Natak Mandali was founded by veteran singer-actor Sangeet Surya Keshavrao Bhosale. On September 20, 1913, the mandali (troupe) premiered a new play, ‘Rakshasi Mahatvakanksha’ (‘Demonic Ambition’), written by the highly respected playwright Veer Vamanrao Gopal Joshi, at the Bombay theater. The play established Lalitkaladarsha Natak Mandali as a reputed company in the industry, and prominent playwrights began to hand over their plays to be staged by the troupe. Keshavrao Bhosle also pioneered the use of red velvet curtains in Marathi theater. During his tenure with the mandali, Phatak gained tremendous popularity performing in plays including ‘Rakshasi Mahatvakanksha’ in 1914, Warerkar’s ‘Sanyasyacha Sansar’ (‘Sanyasi’s Life’) in 1919, and ‘Sonyacha Kalash’ (‘Golden Spire’) in 1932.

Phatak also performed in films, and his major screen credits include the silent movie ‘Bajirao-Mastani’ in 1925, his role as the evil Kamsa in ‘Akashvani’ in 1934, the hero Mansingh in ‘Rajput Ramani’ in 1936, the rival poet in ‘Pratibha’ in 1937, in ‘Panna Dai’ and Shivaji in ‘Thoratanchi Kamala’ in 1941. (Only Marathi)

In 1945, he played the role of Sudhakar, the drunkard in Gadkari’s ‘Ekach Pyala’, which set a new standard for other Marathi theater performers. Phatak played this role for over 15 years. His ability to embody a variety of characters led him to perform across genres in drama, ranging from historical to mythological and social to Shakespearean. In 1954, the eminent Marathi writer Vishnu Vaman Shirwadkar, popularly known by his pen name Kusumagraj, adapted Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ for the Mumbai Marathi Sahitya Sangh as ‘Rajmukut’ in Marathi. The play was directed by Herbert Marshall, a British director, and starred Nana Saheb Phatak as Macbeth and Durga Khote as Lady Macbeth. Despite stellar performances by these veteran actors, the production did not go well. Art and theater critic Dhyaneshwar Nadkarni would later attribute this failure to ‘the Indianising of Macbeth’.

Phatak continued to be interested in Shakespeare. Shirwadkar said that Phatak once asked him to write a play to suit old-school actors, so he adapted Shakespeare’s ‘King Lear’ as ‘Natasamrat’ (‘The Actor-Emperor’) in 1970 with Phatak in mind. Unfortunately, Phatak could not act in it.

Nana Saheb Phatak remained a dominant figure on the Marathi stage for over 35 years. He was bestowed with the Akademi Award for Marathi Stage Acting in 1959. He passed away 15 years later on April 8, 1974.

Panna Dai’s name is famous in Indian History for her personal sacrifice. She substituted her own son to save the life of the heir of the Kingdom. Her son was killed before her eyes mistaking him for the heir. Here is some information about her.

Panna Dai was a 16th century nursemaid to Udai Singh II, the fourth son of Rana Sanga. She was a Khinchi Chauhan Rajput.
In Hindi, Panna means ’emerald’ and Dai means ‘nurse’. Udai Singh was left in care of Panna, after Rani Karnavati committed Jauhar in 1535. When Udai was attacked by his uncle Banvir, Panna Dai sacrificed her own son’s life to save him.

Panna Dai was the nurse of Rani Karnavati, who was the wife of Rana Sanga. In 1531, Vikramaditya, the second son of Rana Sanga, succeeded the throne after his brother Rana Ratan Singh II. He was known for being insolent and arrogant. In 1535, Chittor was attacked by Bahadur Shah, causing Karnavati to call nobles and ordinary soldiers to defend Chittor. Those who were forced to leave Mewar or were disgruntled, joined. Unfortunately, the battle was lost, leaving Chittor sacked. However, Rajputs occupied the fort as soon as Bahadur Shah left. With the fort back in Rajput control, Vikramaditya came back from Bundi to rule again.

After the defeat, Vikramaditya’s temperament didn’t improve, causing him to physically abuse a respected chieftain at the court. In this situation, Banvir (Rana Sanga’s nephew), who was the son of a non Rajput concubine of Prithviraj, joined the court. Banvir was ambitious and in 1536, he assassinated Vikramaditya. To remove all obstacles of his claim to the throne, Banvir attempted to assassinate Udai Singh. However, Panna was alerted of the situation, and she was assisted by a woman of Bari caste, who smuggled out Udai Singh from Chittor, carrying him in a basket, while Panna placed her own son, Chandan, in Udai’s place. Banvir came soon after, asking for Udai. Panna pointed at the bed, now occupied by her son, and watched as he was murdered. Banvir arranged a meeting of the court and informed the chiefs that both the heirs were deceased. He then claimed his right to the throne and appointed himself king of Mewar. Panna and Udai fled to Kumbhalgarh, where the governor was a Maheshwari Mahajan, Asa Depura, who agreed to grant Udai protection. Udai Singh was nearly 15 years of age then.

When the rumours of Udai Singh being alive reached Banvir, he called him impostor, but since Udai Singh was around 15 years of age and his maternal relatives from Bundi could recognize him, Udai Singh started getting more and more support. In 1540, Udai and a considerable force from Mewar, marched into Chittor to reclaim his throne. Banvir sent out an army to repel the attack, but he was defeated. Udai Singh was crowned the 12th Rana of the Sisodia Dynasty. His eldest son and successor Maharana Pratap was born in the same year.

This film was the last film for Master Vithal. After this film, he retired from Hindi films (which he regretted later) and settled in Kolhapur till his death.

Let us now enjoy the second song from this film on this Blog.

A stalwart of many talents, a multi faceted personality who was single handedly responsible for bringing to life the endeavors of Assamese cinema, bringing international recognition to the age old music and culture of far eastern India.

Remembering Dr Bhupen Hazrika on the anniversary of his birth – he would have been 96 today. He is known as ‘Shudha Kontho’ – the one with the nectar of amrit (shudha, sudha) in his throat.

He was born in Sadiya, Assam in 1926. Even as a child, his musical and singing talents were evident. In 1939, at the tender age of 12, he recorded his first song for the Assamese talkie film ‘Indramalati’ (1939). His traveled to faraway Benaras for his education (BA and MA degrees in Political Science, 1944 and 1946), and then to the US for his PhD to New York (Columbia University, 1952). However, the association that was established in childhood would be sustained and strengthened over the years. 

He became recognized as a renowned film maker in the east. As a renowned musician, and a multi lingual lyricist and vocalist, he was the representative face of the music and culture of that region. And more than that, he was the cultural ambassador of India to the rest of the world.

Many awards and accolades came to him throughout his illustrious career, most notable being the Sangeet Natak Academy award in 1987, Dadasaheb Phalke lifetime achievement award in 1993, and the Padma Bhushan in 2001. He was the president of the Sangeet Natak Academy from 1999 to 2004. As a creator of films and film music, he has been conferred many honors by film associations and critics associations in the US, Japan, Bangladesh, besides India.

Bhupen Hazarika breathed his last on 5th November, 2011.

‘Rudaali’, a 1993 production by the feminist film maker and director, Kalpana Lajmi, is a story about the life and tribulations of Shanichari (Dimple Kapadia), a poor woman, abandoned by her own family as a child, and later in life, abandoned by the man whom she loves. A caustic and a weather beaten personality, her life is dogged by one misfortune after another. But the character within is stronger than steel, and she faces the world without a tear in her eye. The strength of her resolve is at conflict with her profession of a mourning woman, rudaali, in the villages of interior Rajasthan. The film is a powerful commentary on the traditional status of women in rural India. The film itself, and the portrayal if the central character by Dimple Kapadia, has won many awards and recognitions, both national and international.

The lyrics of this film are penned by Gulzar, and the haunting music is from the mind of Bhupen Hazarika. This particular song is rendered both by Bhupen Hazarika and Lata Mangeshkar. The deep baritone voice of Bhupen Hazarika so strongly brings to life the powerful verses.

The song tells about the personal sorrows and tribulations of the protagonist – Shanichari, a rudaali woman in rural Rajasthan. Bhupen Hazarika version plays in the background, as we the entire life of Shanichari crumbling and wasted around her. We see her sitting next to her husband’s funeral pyre, slowly removing all her jewellery and adornments. Later in the song, she is face to face with Raj Babbar, her lover, who has also abandoned her. The words are so evocative and portray the sadness that reigns inside her. “Teri Oonchi Ataari, Maine Pankh Liye Katvaaye” – your adobe is at such a height, and the miserable me has shorn off her wings.

A deeply moving experience about life itself.

Bhupen Hazaarika Version

Lata Mangeshkar Version

Song – Dil Hoom Hoom Kare Ghabraaye  (Rudaali) (1993) Singer – Bhupen Hazaarika, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Bhupen Hazarika

Lyrics

Bhupen Hazarika version

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ik boond tabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

teri jhori daarun
sab sookhe paat jo aaye
tera chhua laage
meri sookhi daal hariaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

jis tan ko chhua tune
us tan ko chhupaaun
jis mann ko lagey naina
woh kisko dikhaaun
o more chandrama aaa
teri chaandani ang jalaaye
oonchi tor ataari
maine pankh liye katwaaye

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ek boond kabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

Lata Mangeshkar version

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ik boond tabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

teri jhori daarun
sab sookhe paat jo aaye

भूपेन हज़ारीका

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

तेरी झोरी डारूं
सब सूखे पात जो आए
तेरा छुआ लागे
मेरी सूखी डाल हरीआये
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

जिस तन को छुआ तूने
उस तन को छुपाऊँ
जी मन को लागे नैना
वो किसको दिखाऊँ

तेरी चाँदनी अंग जलाए
ऊंची तोर अटारी

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

8th September – Birthday of Asha Bhonsle
————————————————————-

There are 25 songs tagged as ‘Tasweer’ (https://atulsongaday.me/category/tasweer-song/) song in the blog. Some of the stellar songs have missed the tag and have given a miss to the tag of ‘Tasweer’. I have listed a few such songs which I can refer to off-hand:

Tasweer Banaata Hoon Tasweer Nahin Banti

Ye Zulf Kaisi Hai

I feel as if some more significant songs are missing from my list above as well as the tagged page. So, the list is incomplete.

A ‘tasveer’ is something which tells a story. Be it a still image, a painting, a motion picture or mural. Imaginary or factual, reflection in reverse or converse. Not always needing a camera to capture it, just a glance is indelible sometimes. Moments captured in memory forever.

Some old timers in the film industry refer to movie as a ‘Tasveer’. I have forever called movies as ‘picture’. We never went to see film or movie, it was always ‘picture’. Some convent educated friends referred to them as ‘movie’ and some Kendriya Vidayala aluminis called them films. This is my own experiences, not a comment on anyone word preferences. In Urdu print, it is ‘film’ and in Hindi it is called ‘chal chitra’ translated as moving picture. So, the films moved and talked and told stories. But to tell a story, sometimes a still image is also enough. Technically, film is a roll on which the reflections are captured. What we watch on the screen is a projection of images captured on film rolls.

On the other hand, sometimes the story a ‘tasveer’ tells is incomplete for being one dimensional. The scene, the background, lighting, the capturer’s intentions, all have an impact on the story it tells. Even a panoramic photo fails capture the photographer. So, the millennials invented ‘selfies’ so that they can capture their own stories.

In our times, we have seen numerous such photos which have made history, given cause to monumental events, made unknown non-entities of the world into famous people. Also, photos which captured the events for posterity, stills which make us wonder at the creativity and unfathomable and unrecordable capability of creator of such beauty, and fabulous natural phenomena. Over the decades, there have been photos of apathy of humans around the world, which made humanity hang its heads in shame. Glory, shame, pain, ecstasy, wonder, happiness, surprise, loss and victory and many more emotions and expressions are recorded.
The camera is mechanical equipment after all. It has no feelings, so no sympathy with the subject it is capturing. It also reveals things, the subject wants to hide sometimes. I must grant it, it is a capable equipment, it captures the expression in the eyes of the subject. Mischief, despair, jealousy, pain, love, gaiety, you name it, the camera has seen it all.

I am glad to report that sometimes in gathering of friends, we forget to take selfies or pics… then we lament it on whatsapp that we didn’t click any. Better leave somethings for the mind and heart to capture. Is there a hard disk which can store as much as a human mind?

The ‘tasveer’ category song being presented here is from the film “Basant” (1960). The following 11 songs of this film are already posted in the blog.

Out of 14 songs of this film, 11 are Rafi-Asha duets and trio with SD Batish. Remaining 3 are solos by Asha Bhonsle. Incidentally, I have noticed that in the blog we spell the surname of Asha as ‘Bhonsle’, where as every where else that I can see it is Bhosle. Eleven duets in a film is a record, second such record is in the film ‘Halla Gulla’ (1954), where this same pair is singing all 9 songs.

Here is the song to celebrate the 89th Birthday of Asha Bhonsle, penned by Shewan Rizvi and composed by OP Nayyar.

Hullo Atuldom

‘Prem Rog’ (1982) was a film produced by Raj Kapoor’s RK Film’s and directed by Raj Kapoor himself. It had Rishi Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor from the Kapoor clan heading the cast with Padmini Kolhapure, Nanda, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raza Murad, Leela Mishra, Sushma Seth, Bindu, Om Prakash, Kiran Vairale featuring in prominent roles/characters. Vijendra Ghatge, Rajendranath, Tanuja, Asha Sachdev, Monty Nath, Dulari and Dina Pathak featured in either special or guest appearances.

The story was based on the issue of widow remarriage which I am sure is never a dated topic. There is a very poignant dialogue which Shammi Kapoor (as Bade Raja Thakur) says towards the end of the film which meant that “we (The Thakurs) lay down rules for the public to follow and move on in life but in reality we are ourselves bound by age-old customs.” (The original dialogue, as written by Jainendra Jain is “हम लोग दोहरी ज़िंदगी जीते हैं, दूसरों के लिए और, अपने लिए कुछ और। ये सब दिखावा है। मगर हमारे यहाँ विधवा की दूसरी शादी नहीं हुआ करती।”).  The story was written by Smt. Kamna Chandra. Pandit Narendra Sharma and Santosh Anand were the lyricists and Laxmikant Pyarelal were the music directors. Sudha Malhotra, Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar and Anwar were the playback singers used.

An interesting titbit on the film is that it was the first time that Shammi Kapoor acted in a RK Film, almost 30 years after Raj Kapoor established the banner. Although they had appeared together in ‘Char Dil Char Rahen’ in 1959 and also appeared in a guest appearance in a song of Manmohan Desai’s 1981 release ‘Naseeb’. Raj Kapoor had cast Shashi Kapoor in his ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ (SSS) (1978) and a few of the earlier films of RK Banner.

‘SSS’ had Padmini Kolhapure play the childhood of Zeenat Aman and ‘Prem Rog’ (after four years since “SSS”) saw Padmini play one of her first adult roles. (Nasir Hussain’s ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai’ also had Padmini play an adult role and that released before ‘Prem Rog’) Padmini went on to win the Filmfare award for Best Actress in that year.

We have four songs from film on the blog. Today we are revisiting the film on the occasion of Rishi Kapoor’s birth anniversary- he would have turned 70. He had some different types of roles post 2000 with films like ‘Raju Chacha’, ‘Kuchh Khatti Kuchh Meethi’, ‘Agneepath’ etc and he tasted a different success. The highlight of this period of his career was his on-screen reunion with Amitabh Bachchan in “102 Not Out” when both played old-aged father-son duo.

He was nominated in the Best Supporting actor and Best Actor in a Comic role for playing a 90-year-old grandfather whose heart-attack is instrumental in bringing his dysfunctional family together for a ‘final family photo’ which will be captioned “Kapoor & Sons, since 1921” (that was also the title of the movie). Chintu a.k.a Rishi Kapoor won the Filmfare for this role. Other than this he was an National Award winner for ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970), Filmfare award winner for ‘Bobby’ (1973).

With today’s song we shall also wish (belatedly) Pyarelal Sharma of the Laxmi-Pyare duo on turning a year younger on 3rd September. He has given us so many lovely, melodious moments since the early 60s in the company of Laxmikant Kudalkar after having started as assistants to the big-names of Bollywood music. In all 174 songs composed by the duo appeared in the Finals of Binaca Geetmala. The stats page of the blog says they have composed 2900 songs, in about 635 films, of which the blog has 942 i.e. we are not even halfway in covering the songs composed by Laxmi-Pyare. The first film of the duo came in 1963 and the last film on which they worked together was in 1998. Pyarelal has been seen on Television in recent times as special judge on many musical shows. Wishing him good health.

Here is the song in the voice of Suresh Wadkar that comes at the start of the movie. It shows Rishi Kapoor dressed simply in a shirt devoid of the blazers, jerseys and mufflers that he was famous for. The song is written by Santosh Anand.

kuchh samjha aur kuchh samajh na paaya

dil waale ka dil bhar aaya
aur kabhi socha jaayega
kya kuchh khoya

aisi hai is rog ki maaya

मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी
हाँ’ मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी मेरी दवा तो कराओ
जाओ जाओ जाओ किसी वैद को बुलाओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी
फिर कुछ नहीं है भाता
जब रोग ये लग जाता
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी मेरी दवा तो कराओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी

कुछ समझा और कुछ समझ ना पाया
कुछ समझा और कुछ समझ ना पाया
दिल वाले का दिल भर आया
और कभी सोचा जाएगा
क्या कुछ खोया
क्या कुछ पाया
जा तन लागे वो तन जाने
जा तन लागे वो तन जाने
ऐसी है इस रोग की माया
मेरी इस हालत को
हाँ मेरी इस हालत को को नज़र ना लगाओ
मेरी इस हालत को को नज़र ना लगाओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ किसी वैद को बुलाओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी

ये सुंदर संसार ना होता
मेरे इन ख़यालों में
मेरे इन ख़यालों में तुम भी डूब जाओ
मेरे इन ख़यालों में तुम भी डूब जाओ
जाओ जाओ जाओ किसी वैद को बुलाओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी

यारो है वो किस्मत वाला
प्रेम रोग जिसे लग जाता है
सुख दुख का उसे होश नहीं है
अपनी लौ में राम जाता है
हर पल खुद ही खुद हँसता है
हर पल खुद ही खुद रोता है
ये रोग ला-इलाज सही
फिर भी कुछ कराओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ
अरे जाओ जाओ जाओ
मेरे वैद को बुलाओ
मेरा इलाज कराओ
और नहीं कोई तो मेरे यार को बुलाओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ मेरे दिलदार को बुलाओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ मेरे यार को बुलाओ

Hullo Atuldom

A special birthday. A landmark birthday. Don’t know what it is called in other parts of the country or world; but I know it as ‘Saptadi‘ meaning 70th birthday. And this post is to wish the concerned celebrity-entertainer who is an all rounder as far as emoting is concerned. He can be a repentant son (as in ‘Jaisi Karni Waisi Bharni’ (1989)), cute and lovable father (as in ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai’ (2000)), mean police officer (remember Inspector Laxman Bhide of ‘Insaaf’ (1987)) and the most lovable characters of Nandu to Raja Babu & Crime-Master Go-Go. These are just a few of the varied roles he has enacted in his 47 years in the film industry. I am sure the readers would have guessed that today is the 70th birth date of Shakti Kapoor.

Shakti Kapoor (birth name Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor) is married to Shivangi Kolhapure which makes him jija of Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini (both are actors). He is father to Shraddha Kapoor (she made her Bollywood debut in 2010) and Siddhanth Kapoor (he debuted in 2013 as an actor prior to which he was assistant to director Priyadarshan). As we can see Shakti Kapoor has passed on his passion of acting to his children too. He is an actor who is fairly good at dancing. He made a great team with Kader Khan and Asrani in the films of the 80s and 90s. For the amount of time that he has been in the public sphere there will be many of his roles, scenes, even songs filmed on him that trigger memories.

Today’s song is one such song-dance sequence which I have dug out from memory. It is from the 1987 film ‘Dance Dance’, produced and directed by B Subhash. It hads Shakti Kapoor playing friend and troupe member with upcoming singers/siblings that Mithun and Smita Patil played. He falls in love with the sister (Smita Patil) and also marries her.

The plot has Resham (Shatki Kapoor) going a little wayward after the marriage viz. having extra-marital affairs, ill-treating the pregnant wife etc. Smita Patil dies and towards the climax, Resham reforms and saves Mithun from being shot by Amrish Puri & dies.

‘Dance Dance’ had songs that were essentially dance numbers (what else, the title is a giveaway) written by Anjaan and composed by Bappi Lahiri who was also the playback singer along with Vijay Benedict and Alisha Chinai. The blog already has the song “Everybody Dance With Pa Pa Pa” from this film.

With this song we also remember Lalji Pandey who passed away this date in 1997. He started his journey in Bollywood in 1953, wrote a lot of good songs through the 60s till the 90s. Many of the songs he wrote are still popular viz. “Bina Badraa Ke Bijuriya Kaise Chamke“; “Aapke Haseen Rukh Pe Aaj Naya Noor Hai“; “Aap Ki Inaayaten Aapke Karam“; “Luk Chhip Luk Chhip Jaao Na“; “Jis Ka Koi Nahin Uska To Khuda Hai Yaaro“. If I mention “Jis Ka Mujhe Tha Intezaar” and “Khaike Paan Banaras Waala” the readers will realize that Lalji Pandey is famous as Anjaan.

He was a lyricist who worked with composers from Datta Dawjekar to OP Nayyar, RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Anu Malik, Chitragupta, and all music directors of his time

Wishing Crime-Master Go-Go a very Happy Birthday and thank you Anjaan ji for this song.

मस्ती की धुन पे हम नाचें
ऐसे हर दिल में हलचल मचाएँ
जब तक हमारी सांसें चलें
ये
वो प्यार के गीत गायें
नाचूँ
ऐसे
दिल ना जिसे भूल पाये
आहा
नाचूँ ऐसे दिल ना जिसे भूल पाये
आहा
एक दिन वही गीत गाये
सारा जहां
हे ए
हमको जो खुद पे यकीन है
आहा
कुछ भी मुश्किल नहीं है
फिर यहाँ
सुपर डांसर
आए हैं आए हैं
सुपर डांसर
नाचेंगे नाचेंगे
सुपर डांसर
गाएँगे गायेंगे
सुपर
डांसर
सुपर
डांसर

सुपर डांसर
सुपर डांसर
सुपर डांसर
सुपर डांसर

ओ मन रे ए ए ए
ए ए ए
ओ मन रे ए ए ए
मैं जग में आज पराया
मैं जग में आज पराया
मन रे ए ए ए
मोहे अपना घर परदेस लगे
मोहे अपना घर परदेस लगे
मैं जग में आज पराया
मैं जग में आज पराया
हो मन रे ए ए ए

बिछड़ा जीवन भर का साथ
छूट गया बचपन का हाथ
छोड़ गई ममता की छांव
लोग कहेंगे मुझे अनाथ
हो ओ ओ ओ ओ
चहुं दिश अँधियारा छाया
मन रे ए ए ए
मैं जग में आज पराया
मैं जग में आज पराया
ओ मन रे ए ए ए

वो फुलवारी
वो घर द्वार
वो सुख सपनों का संसार
बिखर गए वो ओ
सारे खेल
बिछड़ी गंगा जमुना धार
हो ओ ओ ओ
मैंने सब कुछ आज गंवाया
मैंने सब कुछ आज गंवाया
मन रे ए ए ए
मैं जग में आज पराया
मैं जग में आज पराया
ओ मन रे ए ए ए
