Hullo Atuldom

2nd June 1988. 33 years ago, Raj Kapoor who was also called the greatest Showman, bid adieu to this mortal world.

He was first an actor who turned a filmmaker early in his career. It is said that he had done roles as a child actor in the late ’30s, but his first adult role happened in 1947 in ‘Neel Kamal’ with Madubala as his heroine. Within a year he turned a producer-director, set up the RK Banner and came up with “Aag” and went on to produce and direct nine more movies – the last of which was “Ram Teri Ganga Maili”. Additionally he produced ‘Biwi-o-biwi’, ‘Dharam Karam’, ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’, ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hain’, ‘Ab Dilli Door Nahin’, ‘Jaagte Raho’, Boot Polish’, ‘Aah’ i.e. the total output of RK banner during Raj Kapoor’s lifetime was 18. His sons Randhir- Rishi- Rajeev tried to keep the legacy of the banner alive and made a few more movies.

Of the movies that RK Banner produced in the ’70s two were directed by Randhir Kapoor viz. ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ and ‘Dharam Karam’.

“Kal Aaj Aur Kal” had a lot of interesting aspects associated with it. (1) It was the acting and direction debut of Randhir Kapoor. (2)It had three generations of the family :- grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor, father Raj Kapoor and Randhir kapoor. (3) It marked the last acting assignment of Prithviraj Kapoor and I have read somewhere that he dubbed for the movie almost from his death-bed. (3) The movie starred Raj Kapoor’s future daughter-in-law Babita. (4) This was the last RK movie for which Shankar- Jaikishan gave music. Apparently Jaikishan had completed recording the music for this movie before he passed away.

Mehmood gave a tribute to the RK family in a song from “Humjoli” (1970) when he played the grandfather, father and (modern) son.

KAAK had six songs of which the blog has four songs. Today’s song shows Raj Kapoor as the father of a stubborn young son and son of stubborn old father. He is torn between his love for his father and son. He does not want to take sides in the tug-of-war of the two generations and both father and son have asked him to choose who is more important. We have Raj Kapoor expressing all his emotions through his beautiful light-eyes (remember the reference to those eyes in the song “masti bhara hain sama”.)

The song is written by Neeraj and sung by Manna Dey.

“The Right And the wrong”(1970) was written, produced and directed by Harbans (Micky) Kumar for Deluxe Films Corporation. It was the first Carribean (West Indian) colour movie, produced in Trinidad and Tobago, a country with large population of Indian origin emigrants who left India and settled in that as well as neighbouring countries (such as Guyana, Suriname etc) a few centuries ago. Many West Indian Cricketers with Indian sounding names are descendents of those Indian origin people. Names like Sonny Ramadhin, Rohan Kanhai, Alvin Kalicharan, Shivnaraine Chanderpal, Ravi Rampal, Darren Ganga, Ramnaresh Sarwan are familiar to cricket lovers.

“The Right And the wrong”(1970) had Ralph Maharaj, Angela Seukaran, Elain Le Gare, Frant Raiter,Francis ashlby, Gloria Kim david, Holly Betaudier, Jasse mcdonald,Mark mathews, Rasheed Pier khan, Susan Hawkins, Tony Maharaj,Yusuf Ali etc in it.

This movie was set in the era hen these emigrants from India were used by white people as contract labours. The movie was in English but it had two Hindi songs in it. Some Hindi movie names were roped in to create these songs.

One such song is already represented in the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh ! This song (and for that matter the movie itself) was a big hit among Indian origin people of West Indies. If one is not aware, one would consider that song as from an Indian movie. This song, O mere hamraahi kyun tera man ghabraaye was discussed in the blog on 2 January 2009, more than 12 years ago !

It turns out that the second Hindi song from this movie was a Holi festival song ! Today (29 march 2021) is the festival of Holi. These are unusual days for India and the world, when extreme caution is advisable while celebrating festivals. On this occasion, here is this “unusual” Holi song from an English language Carribean movie.

If the earlier song was sung by Mukesh, then this song is sung by Manna Dey. The song also has male and female chorus. Thakur Chhabra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vedpal Verma.

Lyrics of this song and other details ere sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe Holi.

I remember, when I was a growing child, I used to hear the name of film personality called ‘Sajjan’ by elders at home, or likeminded cine-goers who were family friends of my parents.
I used to wonder who exactly this person was in the movies I was watching. It continued for many years and all this while I had no clue about this person.

When I was a grown-up boy (😉) and was studying in 11-12th standard I watched ‘Johny Mera Naam-1970’ in 1983-85. And here for the first time I get to know who exactly the actor named ‘Sajjan’ was. After that whichever movies new and older I watched I enjoyed his performance on screen. In the background his image of a good character actor (that build up in my mind from the discussions at home) was always there in my mind. So, I was also enjoying his negative roles in many black & white movies of fifties and sixties.

Aftergoing through his filmography, I can recall watching many of these movies where he played various roles particularly with negative shades or sometime being the associate of the of the main villain of the movie, or the different character roles.

But before that he had acted as a hero or second to the hero in the movies of fifties and sixties. There is a long list of the movies he was a part of; however, I am not listing them all here today.

Regulars on this blog would wonder why I am discussing Sajjan today. The reason is- today (15 January 2020) is his birth anniversary.

Sajjan Lal Purohit was born on 15th January 1921 in Jaipur, Rajasthan (then Jaipur State of British India). That way today marks his 100th birth anniversary.

I had not read about him in the details and maybe he must have been discussed on the blog which I might not be aware of, so I have taken some information from Wikipedia and reproducing the same here.

Wikipedia mentions that he graduated from the Jaswant College, Jodhpur and he desired to become a lawyer and not an actor.

Wikipedia also mentions the following regarding his career in the movies;

In 1941, he arrived in Calcutta and worked as an apprentice in a laboratory of East India Company. His initial breakthrough in films was as an extra in films such as Masoom (1941) and Chowringhee (1942). Sajjan left Calcutta during World War II and reached Mumbai. In Mumbai he worked as an assistant to famous director Kidar Sharma. At that time, the great showman Raj Kapoor was also worked as an assistant to Kidar Sharma. He also worked as assistant to Gajanan Jagirdar and Vakil Sahib and got Rs.35 as salary.
A poet by heart, Sajjan showed his talent when he wrote dialogues for Meena (1944) and lyrics for Door Chalen (1946) and Dhanyavad (1948). Sajjan also acted in small roles in Prithvi Theatre. His acting debut film was Dhanyavad. After that, Bombay Theatre’s Muqaddar was released in 1950. The heroine was Nalini Jaywant.
By then Sajjan was well established in the films. In the 1950s and 1960s, Sajjan acted as hero or side-hero in films such as; Sainya, Rail Ka Dibba, Bahana, Sheesha, Malkin, Nirmohi, Kasturi, Mehmaan, Lagan, Girl School, Paridhaan, Ghar-Ghar Mein Diiwali, Haa-Haa-Hee-Hee-Hoo-Hoo, Poonam Jhanjhar and Halla-Gulla. As hero, his last film was Kabuliwala, Do Chor, and as an artist he last appeared in the 1986 release Shatru with Rajesh Khanna. An artist of more than 150 films, Sajjan also worked in TV serials. In Vikram Aur Betaal he played Betaal. His other serial was Lena-Dena.

I had watched many episodes of ‘Vikram Aur Betaal’ on TV and I liked Sajjan playing Betaal very much.

Sajjan passed away at the age of seventy-nine on 17th May’2000 in Mumbai (then Bombay).

As a tribute to him today I am presenting a song from ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ which was picturized on him (part-1 of the song). I had noted this song long time back but recently when I was going through the list of pending songs and came across this song, I watched it again and noted that it was Sajjan who was lip-syncing this song so I thought to present it on his anniversary.

This song is shown happening in a ‘village temple’ as a part of ‘sandhya-aarti-bhajan’ where Sajjan and many others are present (villagers and temple associates). A grief-stricken Jeetendra is also seen taking resort in the temple and sitting in ‘dhyaan’ while listening the ‘bhajan’ and I think he remains in this situation for a long time (😊) because by the time the song ends Jeetendra had a ‘beard’ of many days.

Part-2 of the song is played in the back-ground while Jeetendra is shown lying on a hospital bed, but as the song gets played, he regains some strength to leave the hospital without caring the ‘staff’ present there and reach the temple after crossing ‘fields’ etc.

HFGK mentions this song as a one song and not in parts.

I have not watched this movie so I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

So far, two songs from this movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is from the movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ as mentioned above. Lyrics are by Neeraj and music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.
Manna Dey is the singer of this song.

“Kundan”(1955) was produced and directed by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Nimmi, Ulhas, Sunil Dutt, Pran, Om Prakash, Baby Naaz, Manorama, Roopmala, Murad, Jeevan, Sadat Ali, Kumkum etc in it.

The movie was based on Victor Hugo’s novel “Les Miserables” which was adapted for this Hindi movie by Pt Sudarshan.

The movie had ten songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Kundan”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Manna Dey. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

The song is picturised as a background song as Sohrab Modi is shown going far away from the home of Murad (as far as I can tell from the picturisation). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke
dikha de zamaane ko insaan ban ke
dikha de zamaane ko insaan ban ke
insaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke

zara uthh ke jeevan ka naksha badal de ae
zara uthh ke jeevan ka naksha badal de
hai manzil ki hasrat to rasta badal de ae
to rasta badal de ae
to rasta badal de ae
chala chal bhalaayi ka toofaan ban ke
chala chal bhlaayi ka toofaan ban ke
toofan banke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke

tu kab tak bhala aa aa aa
tu kab tak bhala haath malta rahega
ye kismat ka chakkar to chalta rahega
ye kismat ka chakkar to chalta rahega
mita de gareebi ko balwaan ban ke
balwaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke

‘Angulimaal’ (1960) was directed by Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures which had been known for producing mythological and historical films among other genres. The film was a presentation of Thai Information Services Co Ltd. It is said that on the occasion of 2500th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha, Thai Government financed the film. I find from the credit title of the film that a Thai sounding name, Viratna Vidyabanich was as one of the production controllers. The star cast consisted of Bharat Bhushan, Nimmi, Anita Guha, Manmohan Krishan, Achala Sachdev, Chandrasekhar, Prem Adib, Ulhas, Kesri, Ram Mohan, Helen, Bimla, Sheila Kashmiri and Master Vinod Kumar (Vinod Mehra). The dialogues were written by a well-known Hindi writer and poet, Bhavani Prasad Mishra, the only film for which he wrote dialogues. Earlier, Bhavani Prasad Mishra had written lyrics for ‘Swayam Siddha’ (1949).

The story of the film is adapted from one of the Buddhist scriptures – ‘Angulimaal Sutta’. The story was said to have been in existence since 5th-4th Century BC which have been passed on to the next generations in the oral traditions until it was recorded in writing in the later centuries. As such, the original story of Angulimaal may have gone through some additions as it passed on to next generation in oral format. It is said that the family background of Angulimaal was not mentioned in the original story. Later on, it got incorporated in the story.

The story depicted in the film is as under:

On a stormy night, a son is born to the Royal Priest (Manmohan Krishan) of a kingdom. The Royal astrologer predicts that the boy would become a dreaded killer in his later years. The royal priest takes his new born son to the King (Prem Adib) for his blessings. The royal astrologer, however, suggests to the King that the boy should be killed to prevent him from becoming a dreaded killer. The King overrules him by saying that it is not right to kill a child when he has not committed a crime. Instead, King names him as ‘Ahinsak’ (Non-Violent) and orders that Ahinsak should be given proper education and the cultural upbringing so that he is prevented from becoming a killer.

During the 8th birthday celebration of King’s daughter, Princess Maya (Nimmi), King finds Ahinsak (Vinod Kumar) the most intelligent among the boys present at the occasion. He orders the Acharya (Ulhas) to take Ahinsak to his Gurukul for further studies. In the Gurukul, Ahinsak is introduced to Maruti, Dhanpal and Krishna among others. In the Gurukul, because of his all-round excellence in studies, sports, horse-riding and behaviour, Ahinsak becomes the darling of Acharya and his wife Gurumata (Anita Guha).

The boys have now grown up. Maruti (Chandrasekhar), Krishna (Kesri) and Dhanpal have become jealous of Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan) as they cannot compete with him in any field. Another reason for jealousy for Maruti is that Princess Maya likes Ahinsak and Maruti is eyeing on marrying her. So, all three of them conspire to poison the mind of Acharya against Ahinsak by making some false allegations. One of the false allegations made by Dhanpal is that Ahinsak is having illicit relations with Gurumata. In the spur of the moment, Ahinsak kills Dhanpal for making a wild allegation. With this incidence, Acharya thinks that the prediction of the astrologer about Ahinsak becoming a killer may come out to be true. He expels Ahinsak from the Gurukul. His parent and his friends also shun him for life. The king announces a booty on his head. In the circumstances, he had no alternative but to run away in the forest where he makes friendship with animals but hates human beings. He starts the ruthlessly killings of human being whenever he sees them. In this process, he starts collecting a finger each of his killer. He takes a pledge to kill a thousand persons and to make a garland of fingers (Angulimaal) of those killed by him.

Angulimaal is now one short of his target of 1000 killings. He is about to kill a person in the darkness without knowing as to who the person was. The person happens to be his mother who had stepped out in search of her son and has been wandering in the forest for many days. When Angulimaal was about to kill her, he finds his hand holding a sword getting locked. He tries many times but his handis not able to raise the sword to kill the person. Then he sees a divine person appearing in front of him who is none other than Lord Buddha. Angulimaal tries to kill him but he is not able to catch-up with him. In desperation, Angulimaal asks him as to who he is.

After a series of arguments and questions, Angulimaal finds that this divine person still loves him after his horrible killings. He throws his sword and follows the advice of Lord Buddha to become a monk. He goes back to the people in the street of his royal palace, asking for forgiveness. But instead he is attacked by people throwing stones at him. He gets injured but continues to plead for forgiveness. At the right time, Princess Maya, who has become a monk, comes and rescues him from the mad crowd. She takes him to the monastery. The film ends with Angulimaal dressed as a monk, walking through the street for alms. Instead of stones, people now shower him with flowers and seeking his blessing.

There are 7 songs in ‘Angulimaal’ (1960) of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Bharat Vyas which was set to music by Anil Biswas. I was surprised to note that of the remaining two songs, the theme song and that too the most popular song of the film, ‘Buddham sharanam gachchaami’ is yet to be covered on the Blog. So, here is the theme song of about 10 minutes of duration which I am presenting with this article. The song is majorly rendered by Manna Dey except four lines which is rendered by Asha Bhosle lip syncing for Nimmi.

The song was not a cake walk for presentation as I found that there were many parts of the songs on the video sharing platform – some incomplete also. Fortunately, I found an audio clip of the song containing all the 6 parts of the song. Each stanza of the song has been rendered separately as background song. But video clips of a couple of parts of the song were not available. Also, it was necessary to know the sequence of each part of the song as it appears in the film. Instead of presenting the video clips in driblets, that too incomplete, I have made a new video clip by ripping off all the available parts of the song from the DVD of the film and uploaded the same. Unfortunately, Part-2 of the song is not available on the DVD of the film.

I give below the part-wise sequence of the song as appearing in the filmand the context thereof.

Part-1: As background song while credit titles of the film is displayed on the screen

Part-2: Missing in the DVD of the film. Probably this part was the continuation of Part-1. This part can be heard from the audio clip.

Part-3: The song is played in the background when Gurumata (Anita Guha) was about to commit suicide by jumping from a hill top into the river for tarnishing her name linking with Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan). A monk’s sermons in the background stops her from committing suicide. She joins a monastery.

Part-4: Princess Maya (Nimmi) after failing to persuade Angulimaal to give up killings and join her, she is distressed that Angulimaal would continue to indulge in his killings. She decides to join monastery.

Part-5: Angulimaal (Bharat Bhushan) is about to kill his mother (Achala Sachdev). But the background song prevents him from using his sword as his hand muscle gets locked.

Part-6: Background song as Angulimaal, as a reformed man and now a monk, walks through the streets.

The lyrics in every line of the song has deep philosophical and inspirational thoughts. This song has as much of relevance today as was 60 years back when it was written by Bharat Vyas.

This is a devotional cum inspirational song which has a soothing effect on the mind.

“Zindagi”(1964) was directed by Ramanand Sagar for Gemini , Madras. This “social” movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Rajendra Kumar, Raj Kumar, Mehmood, Jayant, Jeewan, Kanhaiyalal, Dhumal, Hiralal, Master Shahid, Prithviraj Kapoor, Helen, Leela Chitnis, Mumtaz Begam, Pushpawalli etc in it.

The movie had thirteen songs in it. Ten of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eleventh song from “Zindagi”(1964) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey. It is picturised on Raj Kumar, lip syncing this song of hasrat (longing) in front of a portrait of Vyjyanti Mala.

Hasrat Jaipuri is (quite appropriately) the lyricist. 🙂 Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.


Song-Dil ko baandha zulf ki zanjeer se (Zindagi)(1964) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dil ko bandha zulf ki zanzeer se
hosh loote husn ki taaseer se
hum kahan tak zapt karte dard e dil
haal e dil kehna pada tasveer se

baat dil ki zabaan pe rehti hai
lafz honthon pe thharthharaate hain
tum pe jab bhi nazar milaata hoon
mere armaan kaanp jaate hain

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 101 # Remembering Salil Chowdhury #
————————————————————————————

Today 5th September 2020 is the twenty-fifth (19 November 1922 – 5 September 1995) ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of yesteryears’ great music director and also lyricist, writer and poet Salil Chowdhary.

Salil Chowdhury has given us some of the unforgettable and even immortal songs in movies like ‘Do Bigha Zameen-1953’, ‘Naukri-1954’, ‘Jaagte Raho-1956’, ‘Madhumati-1958’, ‘Parakh-1960’, ‘Chhayaa-1961’, ‘Anand-1971’, ‘Mere Apne-1971’, ‘Rajnigandha-1974’ and many many others. There is a long list of his achievements and recognitions which very well deserved a detailed post. However today we will discuss a lesser known movie where music is composed by him.

Today’s song is from a movie ‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’.

I came across this song almost seven years back and it is lying pending since then. That time the very less information was available with me about his movie. After that I got information from HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). The movie had also become available online for some time before becoming unavailable again.

Here are the details about his movie.

‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Lakshmi Enterprise’ and ‘Hrishikesh Mukherjee Unit’. Saroj Bannerjee, Susheela Kamat, Nitin Mukesh and Shakeel Chandra were assistant directors. The movie was presented by Ashok Hira and Kishore Kanungo

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Nityanand Dutt and D.N. Mukherjee were his associates.

Dialogues for this movie were written by Gulzar. Additional scenes were written by Salil Chowdhary and lyrics were written by Yogesh.

Das Dhaimade was the Editor in chief for this movie whereas Subhash Gupta was the sound editor. Editing was done by Shanker Pradhan, Shreedhar Mishra, Khan Zaman Khan and Anil Pradhan. Biren Tripathy was the Dialogue director of this movie. Anil Ghosh was the associate director and controller of production.

This movie had Vijay Arora, Robi Ghosh, Meeta Faiyyaz, Naarghita, Kumud Damle, Meher Banu, Rajni Bala, Sabeena, Sunita, Tun Tun. Kali Bannerjee, Utpal Dutt, Asrani and Keshto Mukherjee. They were supported by S. N. Banerjee, Raj Verma, Bhola, Noni, Tarun Ghosh, Mukund Babu, Sudha, Sarita Devi, Shreedhar, Jagjit, Meena Rai and others.

Manna Dey, Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita had given their voice to the two songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Salil Chowdhury. Kanu Ghosh and Shashikant assisted him in music.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.11.1972.

Today’s song is a background song played while the titles of the movie are rolling. Earlier video links were available which now seem to have become obsolete and only the audio of this song is available.

This song is sung by Manna Dey. This movie had total two songs and the other song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song. Lyrics are written by Yogesh and music is composed by Salil Chowdhury.

With this song ‘Sabse Badaa Suh-1972’ makes its debut on the blog.

Imagine, a tall and lanky young man from India, trained to be a wrestler, and a state level sportsman from Bengal, appearing in the Indian contingent at the Olympics in 1936 / 1940 / 1944. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) the Olympics of 1940 and 1944 were cancelled due to the ongoing World War II. Had there been peace in the world during those years, maybe the course of history of the Hindi film music may have been different.

Well OK, the previous paragraph is quite speculative. But yes, the fact is that in his younger years, PC Dey was much more inclined towards body building and wrestling. Trained by one Gorobabu, a pehalwan of repute in Bengal, he represented his institution, Vidyasagar College of Calcutta (now Kolkata) at the state level championships and reached the finals in his category. Never mind that his uncle, the renowned KC Dey, would continue to press him to take his music training more seriously. But that was not to be so. Well, for some time at least.

The young Prabodh Chandra developed weakness in his eyesight, which became a handicap in continuing his proposed career as a wrestler. Getting into the wrestling ring with eyeglasses was never a good option. And so, this vision problem coupled with the second World War eventually decided the career path for this young man. And that, to the greater gain and benefit for the music lovers of this country.

Remembering Manna Dey, the stalwart singer of Indian film industry, on the 101st anniversary of his birth today. Born in 1919, we celebrate it today in 2020.

His uncle, KC Dey would goad him, guide him and train him with a vision to for Manna Da to become one of the top singers in the country. In 1942, KC Dey was preparing music for the film ‘Tamanna’. He called upon his nephew to sing a duet with Suraiya – “Jaago Aayee Usha. . .”. With this song, the film career of Manna Dey was launched.

A little time later, Vijay Bhatt and Shankar Rao Vyas approached KC Dey to request him for playback singing in their upcoming film – ‘Ram Rajya’ (1943). Understandably, KC Dey declined the offer, since he would never give playback to any other actor. Providence would have it that the young Manna was also in the room at that time. Vijay Bhatt then directed his attention to the nephew singer. The consent was given and the agreement was in place. Manna Dey would sing for Shankar Rao Vyas in this upcoming film. The song “Tyagmayi Tu Gayi. . .” is the first solo song recorded by Manna Da.

More recordings followed. And then we come to 1950, and the film ‘Mashaal’. The song is “Upar Gagan Vishal“. Manna Dey, and his voice have arrived on to the Hindi film stage.

But then, yes, there is more to his voice than just the film songs. There is a wonderful set of non-film songs that he has recorded during his career. I bring to attention this endearingly beautiful piece, that is written by Madhukar Rajasthani. The music composition is by Manna Da himself. A wondrous song of the first tryst between the lovers. So less words, so short and sweet. And yet, the entire saga of that encounter is ensconced in this brief song of two antaraas. A small pearl from the nose pin of the damsel, gets loose and is lost. And the poet says,

kajraari akhiyaan
reh gayin roti re. . .

Beautiful, simply delightful – that is the softness of this singing voice. Manna Dey – at 101.


Song – Sajni. . . Nathli Se Toota Moti Re (Manna Dey – NFS) (1982) Singer – Manna Dey, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Manna Dey

Lyrics

“Gopichand”(1958) was produced by Ishwarlal and Prabhudas K Tanna and directed by Ishwarlal for Vasundhara Chitra, Bombay. This mythological movie had Shahu Modak, Shyama, B M Vyas, Prem Adib, Paro, Sundar, Malay Sarkar, Kesari, Salvi, Durga Khote etc in it.

This obscure movie had eight obscure songs in it.

Today (1 may 2020) is the 101st birth anniversary of Manna Dey (1 May 1919 – 24 October 2013). On this occasion, here is a song from “Gopichand”(1958). This song is sung by Manna Dey. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of this philosophical song is available. Seeing that Manna Dey was the only male playback singer in this movie, he may have sung this song for the main actor of the movie, namely Shahu Modak.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Listening to this philosophical song has calming infuence on the senses. It is just the kind of song that one would like to listen to in view of the recent bereavements in the film industry.

With this song, “Gopichand”(1958) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Teri duniya maati ki re (Gopichand)(1958) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

o o
teri duniya maati ki re ae
teri duniya maati ki re
maati ki ye kaaya
tu hi jaane alakh niranjan
is maati ki maaya re ae
is maati ki maaya
alakh niranjan
alakh niranjan
alakh niranjan

o jagat baagh ke maali ee ee ee
o jagat baagh ke maali
tu kare sabki rakhwaali
phir kaahe ujad ke
kul se bichhad ke
roye re tu nidaali ee ee ee

khile phool murjhaaye ae ae
khile phool murjhaaye
ye kyun bina khile murjhaaya aa
bina khile murjhaaya
tu hi jaane alakh niranjan
is maati ki maaya re
is maati ki maaya
teri duniya maati ki re ae
alakh niranjan
alakh niranjan

tu hi sabka paalanhaara
tu hi praan ka daata aa aa
ham sab hain santaan teri
tu parampita kehlaata aa
tu hai paalak
ye hai baalak
tu hai paalak
ye hai baalak
tu jyoti ye chhaaya
tu hi jaane alakh niranjan
is maati ki maaya re
is maati ki maaya
teri duniya maati ki re ae ae
teri duniya maati ki re
maati ki ye kaaya
tu hi jaane alakh niranjan
is maati ki maaya re
is maati ki maaya
teri duniya maati ki re
