Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

un aankhon mein neend kahaan
jin aankhon se preetam door basey. . .

It was October of 2017, a year and 8 months ago. The previous episode of this series was posted then. After that – this long gap. There have been many a sleepless nights in the intervening months. Yet, somehow I could not get back into the groove with this series. And actually, and inadvertently I should say, two songs that I was saving for this series, got posted otherwise, depleting my list of song. Anyhow, not an issue – the wealth of the Hindi film song still will reveal more songs for this category. 🙂

‘Ek Masoom’, a film from 1969, appears to be a film that likely took some time to get going, get completed and released. This film was rare and unavailable for decades, and it has been recently unearthed and then made available in public domain.

It is a lesser known film of Tanuja, who is paired opposite to a gentleman named Salim Durrani. Yes, the name sounds very familiar, but this gentleman is not the India’s cricketing great, as even I had jumped to conclude first time when I read this name. The cricketer Salim Durrani has appeared in one film – BR Ishaara’s ‘Charitraheen’ (1973). The Salim Durrani appearing in ‘Ek Masoom’ is a different person. From checking the Geet Kosh, it seems that this film is the only one in which this non-cricketer Salim Durrani has appeared, just like his cricketing namesake.

The story of this film is the theme of same-face-confusion. A mix up is caused when two individuals who look exactly alike, happen to inadvertently wander into the life space of one another. One of the characters has links to the world of crime. And so, the mix up results in some predictable situations, where one individual is arrested for the crimes of the other. The matters reach the court, and are finally settled when both of them eventually reach the courtroom at the same time, come face to face with each other, and mix up is sorted out.

Of course, in the interim, the lives of the people connected with this same-face duo, become topsy turvy. The gentleman who is the straight and shareef person, is the love interest of Tanuja. But when the suspicions are cast on his actions and his character, misunderstandings are created, bringing agony to the lady.

This song is the result of that agony Tanuja is undergoing, spending sleepless nights – awaiting for some sign of good hope that may dispel her apprehensions, and clear the air around the man she loves.

And so the refrain from the poet –

jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya

 The sleepless nights bother those hearts that are torn asunder with the storms of emotions and anxiety. These storms will keep one awake. Thoughts of what could have been and what may possibly happen, rage through the mind. And the sleep – it is far, far away from the eyes.

Another sleepless night. And another song of sleepless nights.

Song – Jo Na Poore Hon Un Armaanon Ne Soney Na Diya  (Ek Masoom) (1969) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Fareed Tonki, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

har ghadi tere khayaalon ne rulaaya mujhko
har ghadi tere khayaalon ne rulaaya mujhko
din to kya shab ko bhi
deewaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya

jo na poore hon

yaad jab bhi teri aai to phir aati hi gayi
yaad jab bhi teri aai to phir aati hi gayi
lakh chaaha magar afsaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

jo tadapte hain wo tadpa bhi diya karte hain
jo tadapte hain wo tadpa bhi diya karte hain
raat bhar shamma ko parwaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

हर घड़ी तेरे ख्यालों ने रुलाया मुझको
हर घड़ी तेरे ख्यालों ने रुलाया मुझको
दिन तो क्या शब को भी
दीवानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

याद जब भी तेरी आई तो फिर आती ही गई
याद जब भी तेरी आई तो फिर आती ही गई
लाख चाहा मगर अफसानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

जो तड़पते हैं वो तड़पा भी दिया करते हैं
जो तड़पते हैं वो तड़पा भी दिया करते हैं
रात भर शम्मा को परवानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

Blog Day : 3972 Post No. : 15057

Yesterday (2 june 2019) was Sunday. I for some reason thought that there was lots of time available with me and so I would do things that I had not done for ages. Sunday morning is the day when DD national presents ‘Rangoli’.

I used to be a regular watcher of this programme when I was based at Bilaspur. That was four to seven years ago. I have rarely watched this programme since.

On this ‘Rangoli’ programme on 2 june 2019, This presenter announced that the programme would have songs dealing with nature. I found that most songs were from 1990s from movies such as ‘Roja’ etc, with a couple of songs from 1960s. There was no value addition from the anchor on these songs while discussing the songs. May be I was expecting her too keep us enthralled like an Ameen Sayani or Nalin Shah. But then those days and those knowledgeable presenter have become rare to find. We should at least be thankful that Vividh Bharti still has good presenters with knowledge as well as passion for old songs.

I then thought that instead of finding fault in the presentation of ‘Rangoli’, I should look in the mirror. Even my articles in the blog has become routine. It is time to bring some zing and enthusiasm in my writeups.

Just as the ‘Rangoli’ programme covered mainly songs from 1990s, I too noted down the lyrics of some songs from 1990s. Somehow those songs of 1990s did not bring the same “kuchh kuchh hota hai” feeling in me. I decided to randomly pick a song from 1960s. This random picking gave me a song from ‘Phool Bane Angaarey’ (1963).

‘Phool Bane Angaarey’ (1963) was directed by Suraj Prakash for Asiatic Arts Productions Bombay. This movie had Mala Sinha, Raj Kumar, Johny Walker, Aashish Kumar, Shammi, Mumtaz Begam, Mukri, Nasreen, Tuntun, Sarita Devi, Laxmi, Leela Mishra, Chaman Puri, Ravikant, Mansaram, Bhalla etc in it.

The movie has six songs in it. Three of the most popular songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

The song under discussion, that I picked by lottery, is one that I had never heard before. But when I listened to this song, I quickly realised that my hunch about the difference in quality of songs between golden era songs and songs of 1990s was not misplaced. This forgotten and less heard song from 1960s sounded so sweet and lovely. And I had never heard this song before !

This song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

It was one of the earlier songs penned by Anand Bakshi in his career. This song came in the era when classy lyrics were being written by several established lyricists. So Anand Bakshi, in a bid to make his mark among such talented lyricists came up with this gem of a song. It is ironic that many of his lesser quality songs are better known than this song.

Even the music director duo were relatively new on the scene. And in this song they have tried to create a Salil Chaudhary like effect. The song and its picturisation is reminiscent of Salil Chaudhary compositions of those years.

The song is picturised on Mala Sinha.

Yesterday (2 June 2019) gave me a feeling that I failed to utilise it to the full. Nevertheless, I noted down the lyrics of some songs from 1990s, that I will discuss next.


Song-Sambhal to le dil deewaana (Phool Bane Angaarey)(1963) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

dil deewaana
zara
thehar
jaana

sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana aa
sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

main guzri umr ko waapas zara pukaar to loon
main apne aap ko thhoda bahut sanwaar to loon
libaas gham ka nigaahon se main utaar to loon
samaa to ho le suhaana zara thahar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

khushi bhi itni achaanak main seh na paaungi
main apne aap mein bas aaj reh na paaungi
jo tum se kehna hai mujhko
wo keh na paaungi
main yaad kar loon fasaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

sataane waale
tumhen main bhi thhoda tadpaaun
talaash karte phiro tum mujhe
main chhup jaaun
hazaar kehne pe bhi saamne na main aaun
banaa loon koi bahaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana

sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

दिल दीवाना
ज़रा
ठहर
जाना

संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

मैं गुज़री उम्र को वापस ज़रा पुकार तो लूँ
मैं अपने आप को थोड़ा बहुत संवार तो लूँ
लिबास ग़म का निगाहों से मैं उतार तो लूँ
समा तो हो ले सुहाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

खुशी भी इतनी अचानक मैं सह ना पाऊँगी
मन अपने आप में बस आज रह ना पाऊँगी
जो तुमसे कहना है मुझको
वो कह ना पाऊँगी
मैं याद कर लूँ फसाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

सताने वाले तुम्हें भी थोड़ा तड़पाऊँ
तलाश करते फिरो तुम मुझे
मैं छुप जाऊँ
हज़ार कहने पे भी सामने ना मैं आऊँ
बना लूँ कोई बाहाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

Blog Day : 3949 Post No. : 15025

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 31
——————————————————————————————

Aah, the heady days of a decade before. Posting six songs was quite the norm. On 11th May, the following films got represented on the blog.

Mashaal

1950
Hamraaz 1967
Aankhen 1968
Parichay 1972
Ghar 1978
Nikaah

1982

Believe it or not, except for ‘Ghar’, all the remaining films made their debut on the blog that day. As I check the record of the films over the intervening years, five of the films have completed their tenure, and all their songs are now showcased here. Just one of these films has not yet been yippeee’d. And that is ‘Nikaah’ from 1982.

When ‘Nikaah’ hit the theatres in 1982, it did create a popular flutter. The doe eyed Salma Agha caught the fancy of the audiences early on. For a brief time, she was quite a rage. Then, the second quality of this film, that drew crowds and appreciation, was the music and the songs. Practically all the songs were hits, and have enjoyed lasting popularity and appeal.

The film has six songs, and four of them have already occupied their places on the blog. Browsing the list, one is once again struck with wonderment and praise, for the songs are –

Beete Huye Lamhon Ki Kasak Saath To Hogi
Dil Ke Armaan Aansuon Mein Beh Gaye
Fazaa Bhi Hai Jawaan Jawaan
Dil Ki Ye Aarzoo Thhi Koi Dilruba Miley

Fabulous songs, each one of them. Now about the remaining songs of this film. There is one qawwaali song, which is more or less incidental in the film. It is the other remaining song that is notable, unique and having its own claim to fame.

Ghulam Ali does not need any introduction to the readers. This phenomenal singer, was quite a rage in India during the 1980s and 90s. Even today, his performances are enthralling and much awaited. It is quite sad that his performance trips to India have become a victim of politics.

When this film was released, it was acknowledged that BR Chopra had accomplished almost a coup, in being successful to have a song, a ghazal actually, sung by this popular and legendary singer, included in the film. I am not sure, but perhaps this is the only instance of Ghulam Ali’s voice being a part of a Hindi film.
[Ed Note: Based on the inputs received from Anekant ji and Sadanand ji, in the comments section below – certainly this song is not the only instance of Ghulam Ali singing for Hindi films. Thanks to both for this important update. 🙂 ]

And so, as I was checking the details, I was quite taken by surprise that this song is not yet posted here on our blog. Well, today, it comes on board.

For its times, this film was a bold statement addressing social issues relating to marriage and divorce in the Muslim community. The predicament of the lady getting a raw deal in life at the hands of a whimsical male partner, whose bizarre behavior and fanciful decisions are quite supported by the norms of the society, completely unmindful of the traumatizing consequences on the mind and the psyche of the lady – and all that, for no fault of hers.

This famous ghazal, which has been one of the all time favorites outside of the film domain, is penned by Maulaana Hasrat Mohaani.
[Ed Note: Sadanand ji further informs us that this ghazal as a non-filmi creation, is also sung by Jagjit Singh for the the TV Serial ‘Kahkashaan’ (1992) produced by Ali Sardar Jaffrey. That version is already posted on our blog at “Chupke Chupke Raat Din. . .“, by Sadanand ji himself. That post also includes a detailed bio-sketch of the poet, Maulaana Hasrat Mohaani – a very interesting read. Thanks Sadanand ji.]

The music composition is by Ghulam Ali himself. The complete ghazal is of course much longer, and there are various variations in different live performances and other recordings. In the film, only two she’rs are included. There are versions of this ghazal as being in the film, which are apparently longer with more couplets, but those are the handiwork of technology only. Some folks have uploaded longer versions, which are copy-paste extensions of the visual clips, overlaid with additional audio, giving an impression of a longer song in the film. But watching with little attention, one can make out that it is a fake.

On screen, this rendition is performed by the gramophone player. Deepak Prashar, having dismissed and divorced his wife, Salma Agha, is having bouts of depressive regrets, and he misses her. If I recall rightly, it is his birthday celebration, and he invites Salma. In this clip it is cake that we encounter first. Then we see a weepy Deepak listening to this ghazal, as it plays on a gramophone in the room. Salma makes an entry, unnoticed by Deepak, and she witnesses the pain of loss and regret that Deepak is exhibiting. Rest, as part of the story, to be discussed another time.

A salute to this legendary singer from across the border, who has a very solid grounding and training in the Hindustani classical music. And this post brings this popular film to being one short of having all its songs posted here. So the yippee-dom announcement should not be too far off now. 🙂

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is that time of the year again. Time to celebrate another landmark of this beloved blog by all the members who contribute to it. Congratulations to the blog, its members and readers for hitting the 15K landmark.

I tend to ‘wake up’ only during the celebrations, though I like to keep afoot of the blog, not as much as I used to. Time was when I was tethered to a chair and computer for eight hours a day when I was working. There were many hours to be whiled away at times and it was easy to read the blog more often. Now that I am retired and a new member of Grandparents Club, I find less time to sit at the laptop. I often read posts on my mobile and find it hard to post comments from there. Nevertheless, it is still my number two most visited blog. Number one is my own blog, sorry, heh heh.

From something that was once Atul ji’s hobby, posting a song a day, this blog has burgeoned into a treasure trove of information. Various contributors keep the blog humming and it now has two fathers, Atul ji has been joined by Sudhir ji. This makes it easier for the blog to keep growing. There are a number of regular contributors, Arunkumar ji Deshmukh is the Bhishm Pitamah of the blog. Nalini ji is passionate about the blog, commenting and writing posts. Sadanandji, Avinash ji, Nahm ji, Mahesh ji, Satyajit ji, Gajendraji, Satishji are some of the other stalwarts. Raja is a personal friend of mine as well as the co-mentor of the blog. Forgive me if I have forgotten the names of other contributors – my memory is shaky post-retirement. 🙂

What do I love most about this blog? Number one reason is the sheer amount of information I gather by being here. Number two is the consistency of high standards in keeping the posts original and error free. Number three is the liveliness of the blog, the constant refreshment of content.

Hindi film music is a vast ocean, no, it is more like the skies that are endless. Luckily for the lovers of this blog, there will always be new songs and new posts to keep us occupied.

Now about this song. When new movies are promoted on television, they are accompanied by one or two big songs from the film. It becomes the signature song for the movie. Hence we get to know the popular songs from each movie and hum it more often. Yet there are often hidden gems within the songs of each movie, less popular but more beautiful. We do not hear them unless we watch the movie and are struck by it or listen to the complete playlist. ‘Haasil’ has a signature song too, “Ankhen Bhi Hoti Hain Dil Ki Zubaan”. But I am struck more by this song – “Ab Ghar Aa Ja”, a classical number which plays in the background during a poignant passage in the film.

‘Haasil’ (2003) was directed by Tigamanshu Dhulia and featured Jimmy Shergill, Irfan Khan and Hrishita Bhatt. College politics and gang war in Allahabad form the backdrop in which Jimmy and Hrishita meet and fall in love. Unfortunately, Jimmy becomes involved in the gang wars between two student leaders and is forced to flee to Mumbai. But soon he realises that he cannot keep hiding and lose his girlfriend in the bargain. He decides to return to Allahabad and face the consequences.

This song plays when the hero is traveling back to Allahabad from Mumbai in a train. The picturisation is very apt, the hero is pensive as he misses his girl, also because he knows he is soon going face danger. His mood is reflected in this slow classical number.

This song will debut the movie ‘Haasil’ on the blog. If I am not mistaken, singer Javed Ali debuts on the blog too. I hope you will like the song as much as I do.

Blog Day : 3913 Post No. : 14973

Today’s song is from the film Dekho ji-47.

The film was made by Punjab Film Corporation and was produced and directed by its owner Wali Sahab. He also wrote the lyrics. The music was by Tufail Faruqi and his assistant Sabir Hussain ( 5 and 6 songs credited respectively).

This was one of the films of 1947, from which almost everyone- the cast, producer, director, lyricist, composers etc etc all migrated to Pakistan after Partition- some immediately and few after some time. This was of course not unusual. As the year 1947 began, news was circulating about the partition. Like many other industries, Film industry was also worried. There was an air of uncertainty. Who will stay and who will migrate was hotly debated in the privacy of homes, studios and clubs. People looked at each others with suspicion. Muslims were worried about their safety in India, in spite of the assurances by Gandhi and Nehru.

Crores of rupees were invested in films. After the second world war started in 1939, lot of Black money was generated and much of it came to Film industry. Investors, Financiers and producers were worried about half made films. Everybody seemed to be in a hurry to finish his assignment on hand. Due to this the quantity of films increased,sadly at the cost of quality. 1947 saw a record number of films made in 1947- 181 Hindi films, the highest ever since films were made. It took another 40 years to break this record in 1988, when 185 films were made.

Almost 75 to 80 % films of 1947 were obscure and forgotten within a short time. Films like Aisa Kyun, Atom Bomb, Barrister, Beete Din, Chalte chalte, Chandrahaas, Dehati, Daulat Ke Liye, Extra Girl, Farz, Gaurav, Gudiya, Heera, Janata, Jhalak, Khandaani, Lalat, Manmani, mere Bhagwan, Mohan, Nai Baat, Pehla Pyar, Paro, Riwaz, Shabari, Shahkaar, Tohfa, Toote Dil, Veerangana are some of the films made in 1947. How many of us even know about them ? Actually, some of these were films in which well known and major stars of the times had acted. For example, Mohan had Dev Anand as Hero, Lalat was the debut film of Usha Kiran (as Usha Marathe), Prem Adib and Vanmala had acted in Chandrahaas etc etc.

Not that ALL films were bad. Certainly some famous and excellent films providing some Milestones of Hindi cinema were also made in 1947, like Aapki Sewa Mein (First playback song of Lata M), Bela (all 10 songs by Zohrabai Ambalawali), Dard (Debut song of Umadevi), Elaan (a bold Muslim social film by Mehboob Khan), Jugnu (the only film of Dilip kumar and Noorjehan), Meera (all 18 songs by MS Subbulaxmi), Mirza Sahibaan (last film of Noorjehan in India), Neel Kamal ( debut of Raj kapoor and Madhubala as lead pair), Parwana (Last film of KL Saigal), Shadi Se Pehle ( first duet of Rafi and Lata) and Shehnai (epoch making music by C Ramchandra).

Nevertheless partition did have an impact on the Film industry, due to the migration of artistes from both countries. LAHORE an important city in the undivided Punjab in the pre-independence days was one of the major Film making Centres in India. Talented actors and musicians from all Punjab and Sindh area tried their luck in the Cine Industry at Lahore. Nevertheless, the biggest centre of film production was Bombay and it was every aspiring artiste’s dream to go to Bombay and shine there. The film activity at Lahore increased considerably in the early 40s in terms of film production and Music. Those days Lahore was called ” a supply source” for Bombay, as many actors and musicians shifted their base to Bombay from there.

In the communal frenzy, polarisation of artistes took place. Hindus shifted to Bombay and Muslims left for Lahore. But there were some reverse migrations also in this period. One example each is of Sahir Ludhiyanvi who migrated to India, and Deebo Bhattacharya from Calcutta migrated to Karachi and prospered in Pakistan as a successful music director.

Some of the families got divided, like Mehboob Khan opted to remain in India, but his brother MR Khan remained in Pakistan and worked as a well known producer. Juhi Chawla’s grandfather JC Anand and uncle Satish Anand stayed in Lahore. Consequently they became the pioneers of Pakistan Film Industry. After the divorce Rafi’s first wife also migrated to Pakistan with her children.

At the actual time of Partition some artists were in Lahore for film work. They were BR Chopra, Ramanand Sagar, IS Johar, Gulshan Rai, Omprakash, Jeevan, OP Nayyar, Rajinder Singh Bedi, Naqsh Lyallpuri, Surinder and Prakash Kaur and Pushpa Hans. They all left Lahore hurriedly and reached Bombay safely.

However this journey was not so safe for one actor – comedian Durga Prasad, known as Durga Mota. He was very fat. In the melee, he reached the Lahore station and somehow boarded the train to Bombay. Suddenly a group of mad rioters entered the Lahore station and started killing the travelers. Most people ran helter skelter, but due to his heavy body, Durga Mota could not run and was cut into pieces on the Lahore station platform itself !

Same way many artistes from Bombay left for Lahore and ALL of them reached safely.

With so many people migrating to Pakistan at a time and the condition of Pakistan Film Industry then, it is a moot question, whether all these migrants could get work there and shine ?

There were 2 types of people who migrated-

1. Those who had achieved their peaks already in India and

2. Those who had just started their careers.

Obviously the second group, at least some of them, could do well there eventually.

Some of the successful migrants there were – Noor jahan, Khursheed Anwar, GA Chisti, Nissar Bazmi, Firoz Nizami, Najam Naqvi, Nakshab Jarachavi, Sibtain Fazli, Wali Saheb, Manto, Rashid Atre, Sudhir, Santosh, Asha Posley, Shameem, Najma, Yasmeen, Ragini, Zahoor Shah, Shaikh Iqbal, Himalaywala, Nazar, Rafiq Gaznavi, Tanvir Naqvi, Iqbal Bano etc.

Some of the unfortunate ones were – Meena Shorey, Ratan Kumar, M Sadiq, Charlie, Ghori, Kumar, Sheikh Mukhtar, Najmul Hussain, Neena, Kalavati, Maya Devi, Ghulam Hyder, Nashaad, Premlata etc.

Almost all the artists who shifted to Bombay prior to Partition did very well here.

There was a second wave of Migration in the 50s, during which many artistes like Veera, Rattan Kumar, Rehana, Mumtaz Shanti, Meena Shorey, Wali Sahib, K Anwar etc migrated to Pakistan.

Partition did some damage to India, but as there was a second line waiting to take over, the impact was negligible. However, Pakistan had to build a new film industry with the help of the migrant artistes in almost all departments of film making. Once this generation ended their career,unfortunately there was not much of a second line to take over in Pakistan.

Like many top class composers who migrated to Pakistan, there were some small time or recently started composers who also left, like Inaayat Hussain (only 1 Punjabi film Kamli), Fateh Ali Khan (2 films- Aaina-44 and Director-47), Tufail Farooqi (2 films-Sona Chandi-46 and Dekho Ji-47). Inayat Hussain of course became a Legend in Pakistan.

Today we will talk about TUFAIL FAROOQI.

Tufail was born in Taran Taaran, Amritsar, Punjab, in 1918. After taking musical lessons from Ustad Abdul Waheed Khan for several years, he joined All India Radio, Lahore. He also worked with many composers. Finally, he got his first film, ‘Sona Chaandi‘-46. Out of 12 songs of the film, he composed 10 songs and 2 were composed by DC Dutt. In this film Tufail gave opportunity to a young but promising new comer, who was struggling to get established as a playback singer – Mohammed Rafi. Rafi got 4 songs in this film and he was overjoyed at this break.

Later Tufail gave music to his second film- ‘Dekho Ji’-47. Here too he composed 6 songs and the other 6 were composed by composer Sabir Hussain. Actually, Sabir Hussain was his assistant and just to encourage him, Tufail credited these songs to him.

After partition, Tufail migrated to Pakistan, along with family and Sabir Hussain in tow, but had to struggle hard there too. His first film was ‘Barkha’ in 1953. Tufail gave music to 37 films, mostly Punjabi films and less Urdu. His film, ‘Bahadur Kissan’ -1970 had a song- ”Mera sona des kissan da”, sung by singer Masood Rana. This tune was a blatant direct copy of the song ”Ye desh hai veer jawanon ka” from ‘Naya Daur’-57. The Pakistani song became a tremendous hit, not only with the Punjab farmers but also was played on Radio and TV often.

Tufail Farooqi’s sister was Master Ghulam Haider’s first wife (Umrao Zia Begum was his second wife), from whom he got a son-Saleem Haider. Later Saleem joined Pakistan Army and rose upto the rank of Lt. General. He retired in 2000.

Tufail worked till early 80s. He had married the famous Pak singer Pappu Pukhraj in 1953. He passed away in Lahore on 25-3-1988.

Film ‘Dekho Ji’s cast was Mumtaz Shanti, Anjum, A Shah, Khatoon, Haroon, Afzal, Dilshad, Mintobai, Gulnar etc. Anjum was the hero in this film. From his photos in Film India issues of 1946, he looked to be a very handsome young man. He was also seen in 2 more films-‘Bichhade Balam’ and ‘Rehnuma’, both of 1948. After this, I guess, he migrated to Pakistan like many other artistes, because now his name appears in many films made in Pakistan, during the period 50s to the 80s. Some of his films made there are, ‘Waada’-57, ‘Nai Ladki’-58, ‘Beqasoor’-69, ‘Shami’-89 etc.

Another actor in the cast, who was quite a popular comedian those days was A Shah aka Aziz Shah. He was born in 1910, at Sialkot. He did not have much schooling, except primary education at Lyallpore and at Islamia High School, Lahore. Due to his rich and sweet voice, he used to recite Holy Quran, on farmaish. He wrote poetry also.

He joined Saroj Movietone in 1930, under Mohan Bhavnani as an artiste at Rs.40 p.m. He acted in ‘Shakuntala’-31 and ‘Gul Bakavli’-32. He had to take a 2 year break, due to an illness. Back in Bombay, he worked in film ‘Fidai Tohid’-34 as a hero. He gave music to film ‘Gunehgar’-36. He wrote dialogues for ‘Mother India’-38 and ‘Daughters of India’-39. His first comic role was in Ranjit’s ‘Mirza Sahiban’-35. He became famous with his role in Punjabi film ‘Kurmai’-41.

His best role came in ‘Sharada’-42, as Munshi Udharchand Shikarpuri. This was repeated by him in film ‘Keemat’-46. Some of his 11 films were, ‘Dhandora’-41, ‘Armaan’-42, ‘Sukh Dukh’-42, ‘Kanoon’-43, ‘Sanjog’-43, ‘Geet’-44 and ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’-45. After 1947, he stopped acting and wrote lyrics in films like ‘Raat Ki Rani’-49, ‘Namoona’-49 and ‘Ek Teri Nishani’-49. After this he possibly migrated to Pakistan and we have no further information about him anymore. Baburao Patel of Film India magazine was his fan.

I have no idea whatsoever about the story line of this film. From the various photographs and comments in Film India 1946 issues, the film seemed to be interesting and entertaining with dance, drama and songs. It seems the film was completed in record time, but it was not released in 1947 for sure. Actually, most of the 1947 censored movies got released in 1948, due to the disturbed political atmosphere in the country in 1947.

Here is a very melodious song from this film, sung by Shamshad Begum.


Song-Baalam Pardesia Saajan Pardesia (Dekho Jee)(1947) Singer- Shamshad Begum, Lyrics- Wali sahab, MD-Tufail Farooqui

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 82 # Remembering Navin Nischol#
—————————————————————————–

It had Navin Nischol, Shabana Azmi, Madan Puri, Rajendra Nath, Hari Shivdasani, Suresh Oberoi, Arvind Deshpande, Dilip Dhawan, Kiran Vairale, Anil Kapoor, Ravi Beri, Wasim Hasan, Madhumita, Sheela David, Savita Bajaj, Kamal Rai, Mala Jaggi, Shivraj, Rajan Kapoor, Nandlal Sharma, Taneja, Suhas Khandekar, Avtar Gil, Ratan Gaurang, Brijendra Mohan and Jagdeep.

This movie had six sound tracks including one two part song and one dialogue track. As many as four lyricist penned down lyrics for this movie – Mahendra Dehlvi, Dev Kohli, Kulwant Jani and Maya Govind. Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri. Aarti Mukherji, Bappi Lahiri, Jagjit Singh, Sulakshana Pandit and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.09.1980.

Today 19th March 2019 is the eighth Remembrance Day (11th April 1946 – 19th March 2011) of actor Navin Nischol. On this occasion remembering him here with a song from ‘Ek Baar Kaho’ sung by Yesudas. Lyrics for this song are by Maya Govind and as mentioned above it is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song though is a background song we can see Navin Nischol and others in picturisation of this song and we can enjoy his ‘elegance’ and ‘soft expressions’ in this song and for me (and I can say people like me) who like Navin Nischol’s performance this song is nice one to watch for him even though he is not lip-syncing the lyrics.

With today’s song the movie ‘Ek Baar Kaho’ make its debut on the blog.

Let us now enjoy the song …

चार दिन की ज़िंदगी है
जा रहे हैं दिन
दो गए तेरे मिलने से पहले
दो गए तेरे बिन
प्रिये कब मिलन होगा
प्रिये कब मिलन होगा

तुम कहीं खो जाओगी
जान मैं पाता अगर
बन के हमराही तेरा
संग ही करता सफर
ये सफर पूरा नहीं होगा तुम्हारे बिन
दो गए तेरे मिलने से पहले
दो गए तेरे बिन
प्रिये कब मिलन होगा
प्रिये कब मिलन होगा

आ आ आ आ 
आ आ आ आ 
आ आ आ आ 
आ आ आ आ 

याद के टूटे महल
कब तेरा मंदिर बना
दीप जलते रह गए
छुप गई मूरत कहाँ
ये दिये विश्वास के
बुझ जाएँ ना एक दिन
दो गए तेरे मिलने से पहले
दो गए तेरे बिन
प्रिये कब मिलन होगा
प्रिये कब मिलन होगा

“Roomaal”(1949) was directed by Ramchandra Thakur for Varuna Films, Bombay. This “social”movie had Nargis, Rahman, Jeewan, Indu, Jairaj, Badri Prasad, Majnoo, Jillobai, Cuckkoo, Ramesh Thakur, Urwashi, Jankidas, Deepak, Pitu, Boy Ratan, Azim, Shamu, Mukesh, Sohanlal, Ahmad etc in it.

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

Here is the sixth song from “Roomaal”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Meena Kapoor. Nazim Panipati is the lyricist. The movie had two music directors in it, viz Hansraj Bahl and Aziz Khan, but the distribution of songs among them is not known. There have been indirect ways to verify thouh that some songs were composed by Hansraj Bahl. Seeing that another Hansraj Bahl song (thus indirectly identified) had lyics by Nazim Panipati, my guess is that this song with lyrics by Nazm Panipati could be a Hansraj Bahl composition as well.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. I request our knowledeable readers to throw light on the picturiusation of this song.


Song-Wo ankhiyaan mila kar chale gaye (Roomaal)(1949) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Nazim Panipati, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

wo ankhiyaan milaa kar
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re

kyun dukhiyaa dil ko tod gaye
hamen kiske sahaare chhod gaye
hamen kiske sahaare chhod gaye
kyun dukhiyaa dil ko tod gaye
hamen kiske sahaare chhod gaye
hamen kiske sahaare chhod gaye
wo aag lagaa kar
wo aag lagaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi aag mein jalti re
main rah gayi aag mein jalti re
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re

wo chale gaye
wo chale gaye aur wahin hoon main
hoon aise jaisi nahin hoon main
hoon aise jaisi nahin hoon main
wo chale gaye aur wahin hun main
hoon aise jaisi nahin hoon main
wo paas bulaa kar
wo paas bulaa kar chale gaye
kyaa ho gayi mose galti re
kyaa ho gayi mose galti re
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar

main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 07
—————————————————

I remember during the radio days, whenever a non filmy song programme would start, we would shut down the radio.  Now it was time to play or to do some study seriously or even watch TV.  The time for all of these things was limited.  Entertainment was available only on its time with fixed hours and no more, because even if we were free the friends will be called home and play time was over.  Time spend with friends in the colony playing or just doing gup-shup was precious.

One Doordarshan showed, programs in English, Marathi and Gujarati in variety of topics, kids shows, game & sports, filmy shows, quiz shows, songs etc.  There used to be a program even for farmers called ‘Aamchi Maati Aamchi Manasa” (Our Soil and Our People).  Childrens shows such as ‘Aao Maare Saathe’ and ‘Santa Kukdi’ are there in the memory.  Shows like Sabira Merchants ‘Whats the Good Word’ and Tabassum’s ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’ and some shows by Yaqub Saeed are also in the recesses of deep memory.

Now everything is available anytime anywhere, with no fixed hours.  Unlimited everything and I am back to the same theme of technology being good, but too much dependence on it is not so good.  Its advancement are there for the human use, but what is happening all around is the other way round.  The technology of internet /wi-fi is occupying the total collective human waking time and imagination.  In fact there is nothing left to imagination, all of it is on display, so to speak.

Now back to what I was saying in the first paragraph.  So sugam sangeet and anyhting non-filmy was a no-go zone as far as I can remember.  I think it was my older sister who found those geet/songs drama shows like ‘Hawal Mahal’ etc. boring.  So Vividh Bharati and All India Radio Urdu Service, both were only used to … listen to film songs. 🙂  Now I realise that this way I missed out on the non-film songs of various singers including those of Rafi Sb.  Even Radio Ceylon was only for Binaca Geet Mala, and nothing else.  So I had zero exposure of non film songs till those private videos started on television, for popularising the private music albums.  Since my association with the blog I have learnt to appreciate the non-film songs and geets a lot better.

This post is to revive a series on Rafi Sb which I had started in 2016. The last post (no. 6) appeared in the blog on 31.07.2016, which was song No. 06 – Hum To Chale Pardes Hum Pardesi Ho Gaye.

Now his song no. 07 is a non-film ghazal which is written by Mirza Ghalib and composed by Khayyaam Sb.  And rendition is by the one and only Rafi Sb.  This is taken from the LP ‘Ghalib – Portrait of a Genius’, which was released by HMV in 1968 on the occasion of the birth centenary celebrations of this poet genius.

This is a popular ghazal and there are many renditions by other singers too.  They seem to have been circumspect in selecting the ‘asha’ar’ to include in the rendition as have Khayyaam and Rafi Sb.  This ghazal was made popular also by Gulzar Sahab, when he used a sha’ir from this ghazal for the mukhda of the song ‘Dil Dhoondta Hai Phir Wohi‘ in ‘Mausam’ (1975).

About the rendition what can one say that has not been said before.  Words are inadequate as the listeners can listen and realise.


Song – Muddat Hui Hai Yaar Ko Mehmaan Kiye Huye (NFS) (1968) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Mirza Ghalib, MD – Khayyaam

Lyrics

muddat hui hai yaar ko mehmaan kiye huye..ea
josh-e-qadah se bazm charaghaan kiye huye..ea
muddat hui hai yaar ko. . .

maange hai phir kisi ko lab-e-baam par hawas 
maange hai phir kisi ko lab-e-baam par hawas 
zulf-e-siyaah rukh pe pareshaan kiye huye..ea
zulf-e-siyaah rukh pe. . .

ik nau bahaar-e-naaz ko taake hai phir nigaah
chehra farogh-e-mai se gulistaan kiye huye..ea
chehra farogh-e-mai se. . .

ji dhoondhtaa hai phir wohi fursat ke raat din
ji dhoondhtaa hai phir wohi fursat ke raat din
baitthe rahe tasavvur-e-jaanan kiye huye..ea
baitthe rahe tasavvur-e. . .

‘Ghalib’ hamen na chhed ke phir josh-e-ashk se..ea
baitthe hain ham tahaiyya-e-toofan kiye huye..ea

muddat hui hai yaar ko mehmaan kiye huye..ea..ea

phool ke jaise ghaav badan par
leke phiri main ban phulwaari
des vides ka kaanta pag mein
maine chubhoyaa wo na mila
baadal roya naina roye
kaajal roye wo na mila
tan ka ujaala rain laton ki
sab kuchh khoya wo na mila
baadal roya naina roye
kaajal roya wo na mila aa
baadal roya naina roye

Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)- Song number 3
———————————————

When I began Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019) on 2 february 2019, the challenge ran for two days before hitting a roadblock that lasted two days. The reason was, allthe movies that were covered on 4 and 5 february 2009 were already YIPPEED so none of their songs were left to be covered on the same date ten year later. Same fate befell all movies (bar one) that were covered on 6 february 2009 as well.

The only movie whose song was covered on 6 february 2009 and which still has a few songs left to be discussed ten years later is “Sitaaron Se Aage”(1958). This movie was produced by V L Narasu and directed by Satyen Bose for Narasu Studio, Madras. This “social” movie had Ashok Kumar, Vyjyanti Mala, Johny Walker, Jagdeesh Sethi, Raja Sulochana, Shammi, Manmohan Krishna, Ifthikar, Kundan, Sampson, Krishnkant, Leela Mishra, Rama Sukul, Rajendra, Tony Walker, Sagar, Ravikant, Prem Dhawan, Moolchand Kapoor, Radheshyam, Bishan Khanna, Vasantrao Pahalwan, Sailen Bose, B M Dixit, Patanjali etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Eight of these songs are covered in the blog. Here are the details of the eight songs covered in the past:-

When I checked the remaining songs, I discovered that they are part one and two of the same song. This multiple version song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman. The song is picturised on Vyjyanti Mala.

With this song, all the songs of “Sitaaron Se Aage”(1958) are now showcased in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
