#A tribute to Jani Babu Qawwal-Remembrance Day 28th Jan’2023 #
—————————————————————————————-

As the title of this post suggests this post is in ‘Remembrance of the great Qawwal – Jani Babu Qawwal.

We are paying a belated tribute to him on his ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ which was on 28th January.

I had in my earlier posts in the series of ‘Qawwalis from the Seventies’ mentioned that I grow up hearing these names for ‘singing Qawwalis’, Jani Babu, Shakila Bano Bhopali, Aziz Nazan and Shankar-Shambhu in my childhood days.

I vaguely remember to have attended one such program with my father when I was a child. And, when I get associated with this blog, I was always eager to read about these artistes. I have a big nostalgia with this ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’ song from ‘Roti Kapada Aur Makaan-1974’ and the voice of Jani Babu in it (in fact voices of all in this song). During recent years I was looking for detailed information about his biography and career but could not get to know much about him.

Then I came across his Qawwalis uploaded on ‘YouTube’ by a person in Dhamangaon-Amravati (Maharashtra). I was in Kenya then. In fact, I even spoked to this person on phone but could not get much information or details. I also contacted one senior person in the WhatsApp group from Nagpur and he helped me with a brief write-up. About a couple of days back when I was just going through my book collection, I find this book ‘Swaron Ki Yatra’ (Hindi Film Gaayaki ka Safar). When I checked this book, I find a detailed two-page article on Jani Babu Qawwal. Using this information, I am presenting a brief about Jani Babu as given below.

Jani Babu Qawwal was born as Syed Jaan Muhammad at Hinganghat (a big city in District Wardha, near Nagpur Maharashtra). Details of his date of birth are not available so far.

He mastered in singing Qawwalis at a very young age. He started taking lessons in classical music and Qawwalis from Ustad Mohammad Khan Shamshiry when he was seven years old only. After that he came to Jalgaon (Maharashtra) and took lessons in music from Abdul Rehman Kaanchwaale. Later he came to Bombay (now Mumbai).

In those years Qawwalis were played like ‘kirtans’ in social gatherings. Jaani Babu wanted Qawwalis to be more entertaining with easily understandable language for common people. So, he gave Qawwalis a simple texture, and a new dimension to Qawwalis, like Qawwalis on ‘husn aur ishq’, ‘sawaal-jawaab’ etc. Many film personalities showed interest in his works and motivated him in his efforts to make ‘Qawwalis’ more entertaining. He also got a major support from Shakila Bano Bhopali. They jointly entertained people for years together thereafter. Their concerts always run to packed houses and even the tickets for their concerts used to be sold in ‘black’.

Jaani Babu’s first film song, a Qawwali from the movie -‘Jungle Princess’ – came in 1958 with Shakila Bano Bhopali only. It was ‘adaayen teer hain andaaz barchhi bhaale hain’ which was picturized on Jaani Babu and Shakila Bano Bhopali. Playback for Shakila Bano Bhopali was given by Mubarak Begum. This is said to be the first qawwali of ‘men vs. women’ competition and is considered a ‘modern qawwali’ well ahead of its time as it did contain ‘English words’ into its lyrics as well.

After ‘Jungle Princess’ Jaani Babu’s Qawwalis appeared in ‘Behram Daaku-1959’, ‘Aalamaara ki Beti’, ‘Choron Ki Baaraat’, ‘Diler Haseena’ (all from 1960), ‘Black Shadow’ (1961), ‘Magic Box-1963’, ‘Birju Ustaad’(1964), ‘Chaar Darvesh’(1964), ‘Magic Carpet’(1964), ‘Rustom-E-Rome’(1964), ‘Accident’(1965), ‘Black Arrow’(1965), ‘Chhupa Rustom’(1965), ‘Son of Hatimtai’(1965), ‘Sakhi Lootera’(1969), ‘Truck Driver’(1970), ‘Mere Ghareeb Nawaaz’(1973),
In the movie ‘Son of Hatimtai’ he sang with Mohd Rafi. His qawwali – from ‘Sakhi Lootera’ (meethhi baaton mein na inki aana kabhi) also became very popular then.

In 1974 his voice was again very well appreciated by all, in the qawwali ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’ (for me this song is pure nostalgia) (it stood at no.1 in the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1975).
There after Jani Babu’s voice featured in ‘Shankar-Shambhu-1976’, ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’ (raat abhi baaki hai, baat abhi baaki hai’ (again a pure nostalgic song for me), ‘Mandir Masjid-1977’, ‘Do Dilwaale’ (1977), ‘Mastaan Dada’ (1977), ‘Aulia E Islaam-1979’. In ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba-1977’ his voice appeared in the song ‘Saibaba bolo’.

(There must be many more which did not find mentioned above. We need to compile the total list of his songs in HFM. I would be happy to share the list of his songs in HFM in future whenever I get an opportunity for that.)

Jani Babu also took lessons from Shabbir Hussain (Pakistani Ghazal Singer?) in singing Ghazals and he started moulding ghazals into qawwali format which again tells us how innovative he was.

Some of his ghazal-qawwalis like ‘seenaa dhuaan dhuaan hai, ishaare kahaan gaye’ and ‘is tarah gardish e ayyaam se baatein ki hai, kabhi taubaa kabhi jaam se baatein ki hai’ became very popular.

His devotional qawwali ‘aasaar -e -qayaamat’ created new records and its ‘records’ were sold in many thousands.

As a music director he gave music for the movies ‘Noor Mahal-1965’ and ‘Aulia-E-Islaam-1979’.

Jani Babu Qawwal passed away on 28th January’2008.

He will be always remembered for his pioneering works in Qawwali and for giving new dimensions to qawwali singing. Qawwalis which were hitherto restricted to Sufi Saints and to singing in Dargah’ only became popular and reach out to common man because of Jani Babu Qawwal.

***

In remembrance of Jani Babu Qawwal I am presenting a song from the movie
‘Noor Mahal – 1965’.

“Noor Mahal-1965” was a costume drama movie directed by Naushir Engineer for ‘Ratan Productions, Bombay’.

It had Chitra, Jagdeep, Tiwari, Lalita Desai, Wazeer Muhammad Khan, Madhumati and others.

This movie had six songs written by Saba Afghani (four songs), Aziz Ghazi and Noor Dewasi (one song each).

Music for this movie was composed by Jani Babu Qawwal.

In the singers’ list, for the songs of this movie, HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) mentions the names of Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Suman Kalyanpur, Suresh Rajwanshi, Kamal Barot and Krishna Kalle.

The most well-known song from this movie ‘mere mehboob na jaa, aaj ki raat na jaa’ was posted on the blog on 04.01.2009 and one more song – a qawwali– has been posted from this movie on 14.12.2021. (I was under the impression that the Rafi song from this movie has already been posted by Atul ji, but it seems that we still have to wait or it further 🙂 ).

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey and lyrics are by Aziz Ghazi. Music is composed by Jani Babu.

In the movie this song happens in the back ground of a stage-act where, I guess, a dance troop is playing a show where they play a typical ‘radha-krishna’ love song.

We can see people watching this play in the movie and some ‘conspiracy’ going on behind the scenes in the movie.
I am unable to identify the actors and actresses performing on this song.

The audio version of this song is longer version. The song picturisation in the movie doesn’t have the first stanza. (I am not aware if the movie video available on internet is an edited one or complete version).

Listening to this composition reminds me of the ‘holi song’ from the movie ‘Navrang-1959’.

Let us now enjoy the today’s wonderful composition by Music Director Jani Babu ‘Qawwal’…

(A tribute to Vijay Anand – The Director)
——————————————–

Today 22nd Janunary’202 is the eighty-nineth birth anniversary of Vijay Anand. He was born on 22nd January’1934 and passed away on 23rd February’2004.

Vijay Anand was one of the greatest director and editor of Hindi Cinema. He also produced movies, acted in movies, wrote movies and even wrote lyrics.

Vijay Anand left behind his legacy of movies that are called ‘Vijay Anand movies’ that would be remembered forever and will always be a part of Hindi Cinema History. He has left behind an indelible mark of his ‘art and craftsmanship’ in the movies he has directed and /or edited or both.

I am a big fan of Vijay Anand. I had earlier presented a brief post on him on the blog.

Our seniors on the blog and especially Shri Sudhir ji have written passionate posts on Vijay Anand on the blog. I am reproducing a brief about Vijay Anand that Shri Sudhir ji had mentioned in this post.

Really very few artists and film makers in the industry have been as versatile as Vijay Anand has been. Active in the industry since the early 1950s, Vijay is the youngest of the three Anand brothers. He did have an advantage of two elder siblings, Chetan Anand and Dev Anand, having made a place for themselves in the industry, when he also decided to take the plunge. And under the umbrella of his illustrious seniors, he had the opportunity to delve and develop a multi-faceted career. In a career that spans more than five decades, Vijay Anand, or Goldie as he was known to his friends, made his mark as a screenplay and dialogue writer, as a director, as a producer, as an editor, and as an actor. His works are limited, given the span of his career, but the quality of his work speaks for itself. The films he has directed are outstanding, and he is acknowledged as the best director for picturization of songs, in the Indian film industry. In this aspect of film making, which is supremely significant given the musical nature of Indian cinema, he is without a peer.

Our Shri Sadanand ji had mentioned this while writing about Vijay Anand in this post:-.

This song is our tribute to Vijay Anand whose birth day falls on January 22nd. That he was a talented person from a very young age can be gauged by the fact that at the age of 16, he became assistant director in ‘Afsar’ (1950). Due to a sudden illness of Chetan Anand, who directed the film ‘Funtoosh’ (1954), Vijay Anand directed a song ‘hey meri topi palat ke aa’ in the film at the age of 20. At the age of 23, he scripted and directed a box office hit ‘Nau Do Gyarah’ (1957).

There is one detailed post on Vijay Anand written by Shri Sudhir ji with the song ‘andhi parja andha raja takey ser bhaaji takey ser khaaja’ presented on the blog on 22nd Jaunary’2018 as a tribute to Vijay Anand on his birth anniversary.

In this post on the birth anniversary of Vijay Anand we today pay our tributes to him and listen to a song from one of the movies. He produced, directed, wrote, edited and also wrote three out of the seven songs in this movie.

We are all aware that the movies by ‘Navketans’ always had good music and they are known for their music as well. If one browse this blog and check the list of movies which are directed by Vijay Anand one can see that almost all of them have been covered with all of their songs on the blog or as we say they have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog, except the surprise which is the today’s movie.

Today’s movie is ‘Chhupaa Rustom-1973’.

Here is a brief about this movie mentioned by Shri Sudhir ji in his post on the blog.

‘Chhupa Rustom’ (1973) is a crime thriller from the house of Navketan. Produced by Dev Anand, the film is directed by Vijay Anand. It is for this film that Goldie shares the credits for song writing with Neeraj. The film is loosely based on the action thriller novel ‘Fear Is The Key’ by the British author Alistair MacLean. The acting credits are impressive and include Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Vijay Anand, Bindu, Prem Chopra, Ajit, Sajjan, Veena, Premnath, AK Hangal, Rashid Khan, Shyam Kumar, Sudhir, Uma Dutt, Kaamraan, Nawab, and many more. The music composition is by SD Burman.
The storyline revolves around a treasure city of gold that is discovered under the glaciers of Himalayas by an archaeologist, played by AK Hangal. The information about the probable existence of such a treasure is also with a group of gangsters led by Ajit. Weather conditions go bad, Hangal is separated from his team and lands up at the camp of gangsters. Recognizing him, the gangsters capture him. He is tortured, but refuses to give the location information to Ajit. Meanwhile, Dev Anand, who is the son of Hangal, begins to search for his father, after losing contact with him. He is actually a police officer, and Vijay Anand is an associate. The storyline follows their efforts to track his father. The trail takes them to the wedding of Hema Malini, daughter of a rich man (Sajjan). The awkward alliance is with Prem Chopra, son of Ajit, for reasons of business coercion. Dev and his team kidnap Hema Malini, and get Ajit and his henchmen after them. The ruse is to somehow get the gangsters interested in Dev Anand, as the only person who can decipher the secret diary of Hangal, who is in the Ajit’s custody. After more machinations, finally Dev Anand leads Ajit and Prem Chopra to the treasure, only to trap them in the underground vault, and extract their confessions under the fear of death.

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my father when was a child. I do not remember anything about this movie except the today’s song (which is a qawwali) of which the ‘mukhda’ has always been in my memory may be it has been imbibed on my mind since years. And then the other song which I am familiar is from this movie is of course ‘dheere se jaana khatiyan mein’.

Though during all these years I do not remember to have attentively listened to any songs of this movie and that is why when I checked and found that lyrics for the remaining songs of this movie have been lying shared by Prakash ji.

And what a song this is, rather a ‘qawwali’ penned by none other than Neeraj ji, composed by S.D. Burman and sung by Manna Dey.

The thrill of listening and watching this ‘qawwali’ cannot be explained in words.
Just enjoy it!!!

Dev Anand is performing on screen and we can see Sajjan, Hema Malini, Ajit, Prem Chopra and others in the picturisation of this song.

We remember Vijay Anand and pay our tributes to the DIRECTOR in him!!!

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1973-7)
——————————————-——————————

Today’s song in this series is from the movie ‘Jeewan Sukh’.

I guess this was an obscure movie of its time and it must have been forgotten easily. I could not find any video of this movie on internet and I think that this also seems to be unavailable as of now on internet.

“Jeewan Sukh-1973” was directed by Debu Sen for ‘Suman Productions’.

It had Dheeraj, Monica (New discovery), Nargis Banu, Anand Chaini, Nazeer Hussain, Dhumal, Asit Sen, Darshan, Niliman Pal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Praveen Pal, Mushtaq, Shirli, Bihari, Jhumru, Prakash Thapa, Hardeep, Dhananjay, Sanjana, Jankidas and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.03.1973.

This movie has four songs written by three lyricists. Naqsh Lyallpuri had written two songs, and Janisar Akhtar and Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ had written one song each.

Music of this movie was composed by Sapan-Jagmohan.

Here is the list of songs in this movie :-

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Do nigaahen teri, do nigaahen meri Naqsh Lyallpuri Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar

03 Hans le gaa le, jee le mere pyaare Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ Manna Dey
04 Ab kisliye uthhayen ehsaan zindagi ke Janisar Akhtar Naseem Banu

Today this movie ‘Jeewan Sukh-1973’ makes its debut on the blog with a song sung by Manna Dey.
Lyrics are are Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’, who, I guess, will also be making a debut on the blog as Lyrics writer.

Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

As mentioned above only audio of this song is available.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs and other information about this movie.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

#the Decade of Sixties – 1961 – 1970 #
————————————————————————
(Remembrance Day – Chitragupt – A tribute)

Today 14th January’2023 is the 32nd ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of music director Chitragupt. He was born on 16.11.1917 and he passed away on 14.01.1991.

On this occasion as a tribute to him I am presenting a song from a ‘1965’ Bhojpuri movie ‘Bhouji’ / ‘Bhauji’.

‘Bhouji-1965’ was directed by Kundan Kumar for ‘Kundan Films’. It had Kumkum, Sujit Kumar, Tiwari, Mukri, Helen, Gopal, Savita Chatterjee, Leela Mishra, Hari Shukla, Bhagwan Sinha, Tun Tun, Master Anil, Keshav Rana, Daya Devi, Amul Sen, T.N. Sinha, Gharib Das, Leela, Bihari, Sandow, Rama Shankar, Rajinder Azimabadi, Balwant Sharma, Bela Bose and others.

This movie has six songs – all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music for this movie was composed by Chitragupt.

Following is the list of songs in this movie:-

SNo. Song Title Singer/s

This song is about a mother’s sentiments for his child who has been separated from her… Only the audio of this song is available. I think video of this movie or its songs is not available.

#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #
————————————————————————

Nowadays whenever I browse the blog, specially the list of movies, I also look at the list of yearwise movies already represented on the blog. Music lovers and readers associated with this blog and Hindi Film Music must be aware that only there are over 40,000 songs created in the history of HFM between 1931 till 1980. Of course there are many creations lost in the oblivion whose records or audio have been lost with time and there is no possibility of getting them.

When this blog was in its initial years Atul ji had mentioned in one of his posts that according to an estimate there might be 25000 songs available for us for songs upto 1980.

However I presume that many songs have since become available online during the last decade or so. So, the actual number of songs may go above 25000.
(Thanks to the passionate and enthusiastic music lovers and sources who upload songs on the digital platform.).

If someone regularly browses this blog, internet, HFGK and/or other sources where the list of all songs from a movie is available can notice such songs which are still to be posted here on this blog.

Today I present one such song whose audio was not available till a few years back.

This song is from the movie ‘Saagar-1951’.

I came across this song when I was looking for a Manna Dey song from the year ‘1951’.

This movie ‘Saagar-1951’ had made its debut on the blog on 15.01.2014. Two more songs were added in the blog subsequently –one on 04.02.2014 and another on 11.02.2017.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

“Saagar-1951” was directed by P. Jairaj for ‘P.J. Films Unit’ his home productions. It had Nargis, Jairaj, Bharat Bhushan, K.N. Singh, Veera, David, Durga Khote, Banke, Rajni, Krishna, Vimla, Neelam, Cecil, Bindu and others.

As mentioned in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) this movie was passed by Censor Board on 02.06.1951.

This movie has ten songs written by Pt. Narendra Sharma. Music for this movie is composed by S.K. Pal.

Geeta Dutt, Sulochana Kadam, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Rajkumari are the voices who have sung songs in this movie.

(we will have the detailed list of songs of this movie in future post with a song from this movie).

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Manna Dey. Pt. Narendra Sharma is the lyricist and music is composed by S.K. Pal.

I am not able to note down correct words at many places where I have marked (?). I would request readers with keener ears to help to provide these missing words.

Let us move over to the song now…


Song-Tere man ki manzil peechhe chhooti bhaiyya (Saagar)(1951) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Pt Narendra Sharma, MD-S K Pal

A tribute to Poet-Lyricist – Bharat Vyas
——————————————–

Today 6th January’2022 is the One hundred and fourth birth anniversary of Poet Lyricist Bharat Vyas. He was born on 06.01.1918 and he passed away on 05.07.1982.

As per the statistics page on our blog he has written over twelve hundred songs for Hindi Films. Out of these 1246 songs, so far, only 436 songs have been posted on the blog. So it is still a long way oof before we have all the songs of Bharat Vyas on the blog.

It is quite possible that many of the songs written by him many not be available now.

It will be interesting to bring on board as many songs of Bharat Vyas as possible.

Today, as a tribute to him, here is a song written by him for the movie ‘Raja Vikram-1957’.

‘Raajaa Vikram-1957’ was directed by Dhirubhai Desai for ‘Sharad Productions. It had Usha Kiran, Shahu Modak, Nigar Sultana, Niranjan Sharma, P. Kailash, Vimla Kumari, Bhagwan, Suryakant, Sushil Kumar, Dilip, Ranjana Shukla, Vijaymala, Prabha Shankar, Bharat Kumar, Premi, Nemo, Poonam Kapoor, Mohini, Santosh Kumar, Chhotelal, Kalla, Anil Kumar, Pandya, Kesarbai, Noorjahaan, Nirmal Kumar, Devchand and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.10.1957.

‘Raajaa Vikram’ has eleven songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by B.N. Bali.

Here is the list of songs as mentioned for ‘Raajaa Vikram’ in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960).

SNo. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ham aaj safar ko chaley Rafi, chorus 01.04.2013
02 Na maangoon main tera jahaan Rafi 28.04.2013
03 Chali re… piya ki gali re Geeta Dutt, chorus 05.07.2013
04 Aaya aaya zor se toofaan Manna Dey Song under discussion
05 Na ja , hamri nagariya aa ke saanwariya Geeta Dutt, chorus
06 Chup kyon dhartimaata, chup kyon … Geeta Dutt
07 Jaako raakhe saainyaa… Rafi
08 Aham brahm dwiteeyon Manna Dey, chorus
09 Dharti par jo rahaa, Manna Dey
10. Hey ambe hey durge, hey kaali Not mentioned
11 O aasmaan waale Geeta Dutt, chorus

From the above table we can see that three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog and all of them were posted in the ‘year 2013’. After that no song from this movie has appeared on the blog.

Today we present the fourth song from this movie which is sung by Manna Dey. I came across this song during my daily browsing on ‘Youtube’ and when I listened to it I immediately fell in love with this action packed song. I had always been a great fan of such songs.

Only the audio of the today’s song is available.

When I was about to send this song yesterday I noticed the date of his birth anniversary wich falls today. So, we are presenting this song as a tribute to this great poet and lyricist who has given us some of the ‘timeless’ songs.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

Audio

Song-Aaya zor se toofaan (Raja Vikram)(1957) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-B N Bali

Lyrics

aaya zor se toofaan
aaya zor se toofaan
na koi tadbeer chalegi khiwaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
aaya aaya zor se toofaan

chaaron oar se saagar ki goonjti
lehron ne tujhko gheraa aa
ab to na kuchh bhi deta dikhaayi
chhaane lagaa hai andheraa aa
aaj doley re dagmag praan
aaj doley re dagmag praan
bhanwar ka aage hai
bhool bhulaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
aaya aaya zor se toofaan

angaaraa ban ke dhadhke re dharti
dhadke gagan ki chhaati
lehraati aur bal khaati bijaliyaan
baadal mein aag lagaatin
aaj kaanpe re saaraa jahaan
aaj kaanpe re saaraa jahaan
huaa hai krodhi wo jag ka rachaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
aaya aaya zor se toofaan

aaj praan ka daanv lagaa ke
kar le prabhu ko raazi
sankat ki in ghadiyon mein saunp de
uske haath teri baazi
jo rakshak hai sabkaa mahaan
jo rakshak hai sabkaa mahaan
kanhaiyya
wohi tera hai bachaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
aaya aaya zor se toofaan
na koi tadbeer chalegi khiwaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
raam bharose teri naiyya

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1973-1)
——————————————-——————————

Today we commence our journey into the year ‘1973’ in our quest for ‘missing movies’ of this year on the blog.

As this year ‘2023’ begins it set the tone for ‘fiftieth year for the year 1973’. When we complete this year ‘2023’ it will be full ‘fifty years cycle’ for the year ‘1973’.

In the future posts on the blog we will be looking into the complete list of movie released in ‘1973’ and their status on the blog. We will keep adding those missing movies of ‘1973’ on the blog whose songs are available.

Today we introduce the movie ‘Baal Mahaabhaarat-1973’.

It was directed by K. Kameshwar Rao for ‘Venus Mahija Pictures, Madras’.

‘Baal Mahaabhaarat-1973’ was a mythological movie.

It had S.V. Rangarao, Anjali Devi, Nagiya, Chandrakala, S. Varalakshami, Shiv Kumar, Master Muni, Master Prabhakar, Master Shekhar, Baby Sridevi and many more child artistes.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.10.1973.

This movie has seven songs. They were written by Kavi Pradeep (one song) and B.D. Mishra (four songs). yricists name for two songs is not mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).
Here is the list of the songs of this movie :-

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 O re balmaa tu haay sun le meri baat Not mentioned Not mentioned
02 Bhaag jage Kunti ke us din jis din Not mentioned Not mentioned
03 Narayan teri leela navras sangam B.D. Mishra Manna Dey
04 Gaayen ham naachen ham B.D. Mishra Vani Jairam,chorus
05 Swaagat ho, gurudev ka swaagat ho B.D. Mishra Vani Jairam, chorus
06 Pyaare bade bhaiyya B.D. Mishra Vani Jairam
07 Jhukaane ko aakaash mahaan Kavi Pradeep Manna Dey, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey. Lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep. Music for this song is composed by S.N. Tripathi.

When I listened to this song today it brings back many memories of the mythological movies of yesteryears that I watched in my childhood. And since this was a song sung by Manna Dey there is a reason to present it here first.
The singing of Manna Dey and music of S.N. Tripathi bring back memories of many songs from the many mythological movie songs of those years.

I hope readers too will like this song.

Only the audio of this song is available. I think video of this song or the movie (in Hindi) is not available.
I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

With this song the movie ‘Baal Mahaabhaarat-1973’ makes its debut on the blog.

——————————————-———————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Bahke Kadam’.

This movie made its debut on the blog on 07.10.2015 when one of its songs was posted on the blog.

While presenting the first song from this movie, I had mentioned that one other song from this movie was available on YouTube. I had also mentioned that this movie seemed to be an obscure movie of its time.

When I was looking for a song sung by Manna Dey from this movie I discovered that the audio of the remaining two songs have also become available on YouTube now. But, the video of this movie or its songs still seems to be unavailable.

‘Behake Kadam-1971’ was a Kalashree, Bombay presentation.

It had Dharmesh Dutt, Aparajita, Madan Puri, Aaga, Jagirdar, Sundar, Sulochana, Mridula, Kanu Roy, Alka P, Sudha Kothari, Yunus Bihari, Chaman Choti, Dhananjay, Satish, Major Sudan, Bijendra, Kailash Dhiman, Sadiq, Anita Sinha, Ramesh Verma, Sharad, Jagmal, Karan Singh, Suresh Sinha, Kajal, Lal ji, S.Sinha, Shankar Mamtora, , Vishnu, Narendra, Prakash, Suraj, Ramkishore, Sitaram, Yasin, L.M.Prabhu, Anand Sharma, and Suparna in a Special Role.

Music of this film was composed by Usha Khanna (assisted by Ashok Khanna).

Dharmesh Dutt penned the lyrics for the four songs in this movie.
Mahendra Kapoor, Mohd Rafi, Usha Khanna and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Manna Dey. Lyrics are by Dharmesh Dutt who is also the director and actor in this movie.

Today’s song is a nice song to listen to and it grows upon us if we listen to it a few times.

Only the audio of this song is available.

I would request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

Today’s song is from a Telugu Language film which was dubbed in Hindi and named as Jaisingh-1959.

Till 1947, Hindi films were made mostly in Bombay,Lahore,Calcutta, Kolhapur and Poona. Most studios were located in these cities. South Indian language films were made mainly in Madras and Bangla films were made in Calcutta and Dhaka. The Partition in 1947 changed the picture completely. Wholesale polarisation took place.Producers of Hindi films had to flee from Lahore,leaving everything behind them and some artistes from Bombay left for Pakistan. Thus, after Partition, the exclusive centre for production of Hindi films was only Bombay. By 1950 things settled in India and Pakistan Film Industry.

Telugu film producers shifted to Hyderabad,Kannada films to Bangalore and Malayalam to Kerala. Madras, however,still made films other than Tamil,like Telugu Hindi etc. But now it was only Remakes of successful Tamil films or dubbed films.The 50s saw many Hindi films dubbed from southern languages(Read Tamil/Telugu). Initially,they were Mythological, Fantasy or costume films. In the 60s,however, even social films were remade.

Film production in Madras is very methodical and professional.They make films as per plans and in planned time.For this reason,in the 60s to 80s many Hindi film actors volunteered to to make films in south.The producers in south too had their favourites. In the Music area, there were, Ravi, C.Ramchandra or Madan Mohan, for lyrics and story, Rajinder krishna and Pradeep, and preferred actors were Jeetendra, Rajendra Kumar, Sunil Dutt and Mehmood.

Though Polarisation took place in film production, the attraction to come to Bombay and work here continued. Artistes from various centres still came to Bombay.
The biggest contribution came from Bengal,in music,direction and acting areas.Artistes from South tried their hand with Hindi films,either by Remade or dubbed films. Thus the greatest south actors like Sivaji Ganeshan,M G Ramchandran ,N T Rama Rao, A.Nageshwar Rao, Jailalita, Janaki, Susheela, Bhanumathi, Prem Nazir of the older generation and Rajanikanth, Kamal Hasan and Chiranjeevi from the next Generation were seen in Hindi films. Only Dr.Rajkumar, the Kannada Superstar never worked in Hindi films. In fact,except for just 1 Telugu film, Shri Kalahasti Mahatmyam-1954, Dr.Rajkumar never worked in any other language film.

In the music department also, many composers like K.Narayan Rao, S.Rajeshwar Rao, C R Subramanyam, E Shankar, R Sudershanam, Ramesh Naidu, Adi Narayanrao, Vishwanath-Rammurthy,Lingappa etc worked in Hindi films.

There was one name from South,which was so famous,but it is surprising that he too gave music to Hindi Films.His name was GHANTASALA.

The major difficulty for southern artistes was speaking in Hindi. Due to this, they hesitated to work in Hindi films and instead, preferred dubbing their hit films in Hindi, released them on All India basis and hoped for becoming famous. Initially, in the period of the 50’s and 60’s decades, there was a spate of dubbed films, as well as some remade films in Hindi. Later on and now of course only hit films are remade in Hindi. The count of dubbed films has gone down considerably. These days, I find that even hit films of Hindi are also remade in southern languages.

The original Telugu film was Jaisimha-1955. It was dubbed in Hindi and released in 1959 as Jai Singh. The cast of the film was Waheeda Rehman, Anjali Devi, N.T.Rama Rao (known popularly as NTR ), S.V.Ranga Rao, Relangi, Gummadi, Kanta Rao Rajnala and others. Waheeda Rehman had acted in this film before coming to Bombay for Hindi films.

The Telugu film was released on the Dussehra day-21st Oct 1955 in Hyderabad.NTR was extremely popular and there was a huge rush on the first day itself.The music of Jayasimha,by T.V.Raju was excellent.There were 10 songs and they were sung by stalwarts like,Jikki,P.Susheela,Ghantasala,P.Leela,R.Balasaraswati Devi,K.Rani,M.S.Rao,P.Nageshwar Rao etc.

The Hindi version has only 8 songs and ALL songs have the same tunes as in Telugu.The Hindi film MD was Ramesh Naidu,ably assisted by S.L.Merchant. The singers were Lata, Geeta, Usha, Manna Dey and P.Susheela ( who has sung 44 songs in Hindi in 20 films). The story of the film was a routine for a Costume film, but it became a hit film in Telugu, because of N.T.Rama Rao. In Hindi, however, it had an average audience.

JAI SINGH-1959 was a dubbed film in Hindi,which came after a 4 years’ gap. I have seen both the Telugu and the Hindi versions. The story was….

Jai singh(NTR) is an orphan Prince of Malwa state,who is brought up lovingly by the wife of the wicked Wazir Rudra Singh(SV Ranga rao).He wants to kill Jaisingh,but jaisingh escapes and reaches Magadh Desh,where he rescues Padmini(Waheeda Rehman),the princess from the robbers.They fall in love.
Jaisingh stays with his loyal but crippled soldier Randhir (Gummadi),whose daughter Kalindi(Anjali Devi)loves Jaisingh,who treats her as his sister.
The king of magadh is imprisoned by the rebels,but Jaisingh rescues him.Then Padmini is kidnapped.Meanwhile Rudra singh sends his senapathi and captures Jaisingh,to kill him.
Kalindi reaches the jail,rescues Jaisingh and dies in the fighting which follows,thus sacrificing her life for her love.
Jaisingh then fights Rudra singh,kills him and then rescues Padmini also.
They get married and live happily thereafter.

The Hero of this film N.T.Rama Rao (NTR) was a very famous and popular actor in the south. NTR founded his production company NAT with an intention to make message oriented movies. Though his first two productions, Pitchi Pullaiah and Thodudongalu won critical appreciation, they left him with a huge monetary loss. A disheartened NTR told his production chief and relative Atluri Pundarikakshaiah that they should sell their cars and henceforth travel by bicycles. His producer-brother Nandamuri Trivikrama Rao and Pundarikakshaiah suggested to him that they should make a folk tale for their next venture. NTR also felt it was a safe bet to produce folklore as three of his starrers in a row, Pathala Bhairavi , Chandirani , and Rechukka were big hits. Thus was born the story of Jayasimha .

In this film an actor Gummadi has done the role of an old soldier- Randhir, whose daughter is Anjali Devi. That time Gummadi was an young man below 30, but he did the role of an aged, old man. Later in his memoirs, Gummadi wrote ” “After shooting the song, Jaya Jaya Sri Rama, I removed the makeup and sat next to NTR. Anjali Devi asked NTR ‘who is this boy?’ NTR had a hearty laugh and replied, ‘Till now he is the one who acted as your father.’ I can never forget the surprised expression on Anjali Devi’s face. As an actor it was the most memorable moment in my life.”

Normally we do not know much about Southern actors or actresses. Today, let us know more about NTR. Nandmuri Tarak Rama Rao ( 28-5-1923 to 18-1-1996) was an actor and a Politician from Andhra Pradesh. He was undoubtedly one of the most popular actors in his hay days. That is why, probably, his many hit films were either remade or mostly dubbed in Hindi – the maximum number than any other south artiste – 23 films. His contemporaries like Sivaji Ganesan, MGR, Gemini Ganesan etc were far behind him in this race.

He was born in a small village in Krishna District of Andhra coming under the then Madras Presidency. He was adopted by his childless Uncle and Aunty. He matriculated in 1940 and graduated from Guntur college in 1947. He first joined Government service as a Sub-Registrar but quit in 21 days to seek film roles. While studying, he was married to his maternal cousin in 1943 from whom he had 8 sons and 4 daughters- a full dozen children.

He debuted in the film “Mana Desam “-1949, directed by L.V.Prasad. Then there was no looking back. In the 50’s, he became very popular by doing roles of Rama, Krishna and Karna in mythological films. Later he did many films of the ” Robin Hood ‘type. He acted in Telugu and Tamil films. In 1982, he left films and founded Telugu Desam Party to safeguard regional pride. He was Chief Minister of A.P. from 1983 to 1995. He died on 18-1-1996. He was given Padmashree in 1968.

As I am from Hyderabad and know Telugu language, I have seen many of his films. He had a typical Drama Type acting style, like all other south artistes of his times. He founded his own film company and studio called National Art Theatre ( NAT), and produced over 30 films.

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey.

Song- Na manzil teri na thhikaana (Jai Singh)(1959) Singer- Manna Dey Lyricist- Prem Dhawan, MD- P.Ramesh Naidu

Lyrics

lehron mein hai chhupa kinaara aa aa
raat mein chhupa sawera aa
man ka diya jala le
ho jaayega door andhera

na manzil teri na thhikana
phir bhi rahi chalte jaana
le himmat se kaam re
saath hai tere Raam re

thhokar se tu raahen banaa le ae
aandhi mein bhi deep jala le ae
hat jaayenge badal kaale ae ae ae
le data ka naam re ae
saath hain tere Raam re
na manzil teri na thhikaana
phir bhi raahi chalte jaana
le himmat se kaam re
saath hai tere Raam re

aas ka sooraj doobaa jaata aa
tod chala tu sabse naata aa
aas ka sooraj doobaa jaata
tod chala tu sabse naata
tujhe pukaare teri maata aa aa aa
tujhe pukaare teri maata aa aa aa
roye aanchal thhaam re ae
saath hai tere Raam re
na manzil teri na thhikaana
phir bhi raahi chalte jaana
le himmat se kaam re ae
saath hai tere Raam re
na manzil teri na thhikaana
phir bhi raahi chalte jaana
le himmat se kaam re ae
saath hai tere Raam re
