Missing Films of 1960s – 95
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

We come to a very interesting episode of this series. The film I pick for today is ‘Koi Ghulam Nahin’ from 1970. The Geet Kosh listings say that the film has 6 songs, and all of them have been released on 78 rpm gramophone records. As I checked my own collection, I find that all the six songs are available. Just to check, I also went online and discovered that two songs are available on the YouTube. And very interestingly, one of them turns out to be a video. And a very interesting video at that. The song is sung by Rafi Sb, and is performed on screen by MG Ramachandran (MGR), the super star of South Indian cinema.

This heightened my curiosity, and I did some more research. It turns out that MGR has appeared in 13 Hindi films (1 unreleased), between 1951 and 1980. On a hunch, I checked out the production banners. It turns out that for all these 13 films, the production houses are/were located in Madras (now Chennai). So one inference that can be drawn is that all these 13 films might well have been bilingual films, or that they are originally films produced in South Indian language and then dubbed into Hindi.

Since we are dealing with the 1960s, I checked out the other MGR films in this decade. And I find that other than ‘Baghdad’ (1961), for the other MGR films in this decade, viz. ‘Hamen Bhi Jeene Do’ (1962), ‘Meri Bahen’ (1962), ‘Raj Mahal’ (1963), and ‘Nartaki Chitra’ (1965), the songs are not traceable and not available. A possible explanation can be that for these bilingual or dubbed films, no songs were released on gramophone records. And that their video prints are not available too.

Today’s film, ‘Koi Ghulam Nahin’, is produced under the banner of MGR Pictures, madras and is directed by K Shankar. The star cast is listed as MG Ramchandran, Ashokan, Manohar, Chandra Babu, Cho, Jaylalita, Pandhari Bai, Jyotilakshmi, and Baby Rani. The songs are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak and the music is by SN Tripathi.

Today’s song, is an ode in the praise of the ‘mother’. In the video clip, we can see MGR lip syncing this song sung by Rafi Sb. The lip syncing, as well as in some ways, the odd arrangement of Hindi words in the lines of the song, well indicates the possibility of dubbing, and / or force fitting Hindi lyrics to the tune of a song originally in a South Indian language.

In the video clip, we also see a lady dressed in white, as the song progresses. I don’t want to hazard a guess, and I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to help identify this actress.
[Note: Dr Pradeep Shetty has informed that this actress is Pandhari Bai.]

Today, March 14th, also happens to be the birth anniversary of music director SN Tripathi. This song also makes that anniversary connection for today.

Song – Gaa Re Gaa Mann Aaj Yahi  (Koi Ghulam Nahin) (1970) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD – SN Tripathi

Lyrics

gaa re gaa mann aaj yahi

aadi ant mein tu hai
maa nyaye mein neeti mein tu hai
jis ne diya hai pyaar
aas ki jo bahaar
mili aaj aisi mahashakti
jis ne diya hai pyaar
aas ki jo bahaar
mili aaj aisi mahashakti

arre gaa re gaa mann aaj yahi
tere din ab badal gaye
reh naa udaas
ho naa niraash
sang mein tere gaaye akaash
gaa re gaa mann aaj yahi

अरे गा रे गा मन आज यही
तेरे दिन अब बदल गए
रह ना उदास
