“Africa” (1954) was produced by by C Chandrakant and directed by K Kant for Movie India, Bombay. The movie had Baburao pahalwan , Krishna Kumari, Habib, Alice, Ishwar, R S Pawar, Madan Kapoor, Shaikh, D N Devesh, Parmesh, Babu, Raghu, Gopal, Ahmad, Kaka, Nagendra, Kumar Sharma, R S Dewan (Gorilla) etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from this obscure movie. The song is sung by Mubarak Begam. Lyricist is Kumar Sharma Vanvasi. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

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


Song-Dil ki duniya pe chhaa gaya koi (Africa)(1954) Singer-Mubarak Begam, Lyrics-Kumar Sharma Vanwasi, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

dil ki duniya pe chha gaya koi
mujhko apna bana gaya koi
bana gaya koi
dil ki duniya pe chha gaya koi
mujhko apna bana gaya koi
bana gaya koi

maine ab tak na kuchh bhi seekha tha
pyar karna sikha gaya koi
sikha gaya koi
dil ki duniya pe chha gaya koi
mujhko apna bana gaya koi
bana gaya koi

mast aankhon ke ek ishaare se
aag dil mein laga gaya koi
laga gaya koi
dil ki duniya pe chha gaya koi
mujhko apna bana gaya koi
bana gaya koi

chain tab se hi ho gaya rukhsat
aankh jab se lada gaya koi
lada gaya koi
dil ki duniya pe chha gaya koi
mujhko apna bana gaya koi
bana gaya koi

pyaar mein main to ho gayi paagal
mujhpe jaadu chala gaya koi
chala gaya koi
dil ki duniya pe chha gaya koi
mujhko apna bana gaya koi
bana gaya koi

Blog Day : 3700 Post No. : 14621

Today (4 september 2018) happens to be the 3700th day of existence for this blog. Though we have had 37 such centuries so far, we began to take notice of this century only from century number 34 (viz post number 3400) onwards.

We began to post special articles and songs to mark these special occasions. The 3400th day has an interesting post by Sudhir Jee followed by a post by me and thus started the tradition of celebrating these special kinds of centuries in the blog.

3400th day saw the 3400th song from the decade of 1960s being covered in the blog and that happened to be the century post for lyricist Shewan Rizvi.

Then the 3500th day saw Sudhir Jee digging out a song containing the word “hazaar” in it while I covered a joie de vivre song containing the word “shehnaai” in it.

3600th day saw the memorable title song of “Naseeb”(1981) being discussed on the occasion.

Today (4 september 2018) happens to be the 3700th day of the blog. This occasion too merits special posts marking the occasion. It turns out that the special posts being covered on the occasion were originally meant for some other special occasions, but they are finally ending up as posts celebrating THIS occasion.

For Instance, Sudhir Jee’s post, a thesis par excellence on the HFM scene of 1936, which also coveres K N Singh in detail, was originally meant as part of our series on “Yearwise statistics of HFM”, whose previous instalment was covered in 2015, so this article was in the making for nearly three years. 🙂

Likewise, the song and the topic that I cover in this post was originally meant to be covered on the day the blog turned ten years old, viz on 19 july 2018. My plan was to have a detailed statistical analysis of Mubarak Begam accompanied by her 100th song in the blog. As things happened, I could not achieve that target. Finally we reconciled by marking Mubarak Begam’s century later, coinciding it with the last century of the blog, viz the post number 14600.

I had decided that the next Mubarak Begam song that I was going to cover would contain the statistical analysis of Mubarak Begam. Like Sudhir Jee, I too have decided to fast forward my efforts to coincide my article to appear today as part of 3700th day celebrations.

My research on Mubarak Begam, which has taken me several weeks, reveal that she may have sung a little more than 200 songs in HFM (plus in Bhojpuri, Avadhi etc), and my figure is higher than what is mentioned online by “authentic” sources. I found that quite a few songs not sung by Mubarak Begam are incorrectly attributed to her online. On the other hand, several songs sung by her have gone unattributed to her. Even HFGK does not fully credit all her songs to her. I found that a few movies whose songs contain no mention of singers in HFGK are sung by Mubarak Begam. Finally I ended up a tally of 195 Mubarak Begam songs from 125 movies. I am quite sure that this figure would go up and cross 200 as I listen to a few more songs that are not attributed to any singers in HFGK.

That research would wait. In the meanwhile, here is the moviewise break up of Mubarak Begam songs that I have been able to locate. I have also mentioned the number of Mubarak Begam songs from these movies that have been covered in the blog.

124 Ganga Maang Rahi Balidaan 1981 Prem Dhawan 0 3 Three duets with Shamshad Begam
125 Sister 1982 J Kaushik 1 1 One solo

One can see from the above that Mubarak Begam typically got two or three songs in a movie and that she typically got to sing in five or six movies in a year. In addition, she mostly sang in small budget movies that had small time struggling music directors in them. In all, she worked with 61 music directors. So, on an average, she sang three or four songs with each of her music directors.

On rare occasions, she got to work with A grade music directors, viz Naushad and S D Burman, but only in two movies each. The music director who collaborated with her most frequently was Iqbal Qureshi. She had 15 songs with him from nine movies. These are the figures for her most fruitful collaboration ! She was not able to forge any long term collaboration with any established music directors and that is reflected in her poor return of around 200 songs in a career spanning nearly three decades.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Circus Queen”(1959). This movie was directed by Noshir Engineer for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had John Cawas, Nadia, Samar Roy, Sheila Kashmiri, Sheikh, Neelofar, Habeeb, Master Suresh, Shree Bhagwan, Mansoor, Dalpat, Ajit Kumar, Abdullah, Julien, Korega, Yadav, angre, S B Gayakvad etc in it.

This movie had four songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

HFGK does not mention the singers of the four songs from this movie. On listening to these songs, one finds that as many as three of these songs contain the voice of Mubarak Begam in them.

Here is the second song from “Circus Queen”(1959) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mubarak Begam. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shafi M Nagri.

The song is picturised as a club dance song. I am unable to identify the dancer. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancer as well as the other actors visible in the picturisation.

हम हाल ए दिल सुनाएँगे, सुनिए के ना सुनिए
सौ बार मुस्कुराएंगे, सुनिए के ना सुनिए॰ ॰ ॰

Or
मुझको अपने गले लगा लो ए मेरे हमराही॰ ॰ ॰

Or
मेरे आंसुओं पे ना मुस्कुरा, कई ख़्वाब थे जो मचल गए॰ ॰ ॰

Or maybe
दीप के संग जलूँ मैं॰ ॰ ॰

Or maybe even
निगाहों से दिल में चले आइयेगा॰ ॰ ॰

And but why not
कभी तनहाईओं में यूं, हमारी याद आएगी॰ ॰ ॰

If I start listing favorites, then it will take a long time to get to the matter of the subject. Ah yes, the songs listed above clearly point to the artist this article is about. The songs listed are iconic as well as popular hits. When she recorded “Kabhi Tanhaai’on Mein. . .”, and her father listened to it for the first time, his prophetic reaction was that this song is going to remain in popular memory for generations. And these words are so true for so many of her other songs, if the above sampler is anything to go by. Going beyond the barriers of time and space, her songs continue to enchant and touch listeners and lovers of this music, across the world.

Yes, there is something about this voice – something so special that the emotion descends right down into the being and reach the soul. A voice that is soft like the first beams of the rising sun, that is fresh like the petals of a newly blossomed flower, that carries the brightness of a velvety full moon, that is gentle like the humming of the unhurried breeze of early morning, that carries within a perceptible tinge of a soothing pathos, signaling a touch of sadness that simply engulfs your heart when the words play “. . .tum ko kya batlaaun main, ke tumse kitna pyaar hai”. The emotions makes the heart overflow with a tender fondness of love, while at the same time you feel you can’t hold back your tears for the beseeching pleas from the heart.

That is the magic of her voice, that keeps bringing me back to her songs, over and over again. The tinge of sadness is evident even in the lilting songs of happiness, as if expressing the imperative emotion acknowledging the frailty of existence and the ephemeral passing of the moments of joy – a fleeting this and a fleeting that, and soon the life is done with. That despondency that always sits low at the bottom edge of the voice, is what makes it so endearing.

Mubarak Begum – an artist, an uneducated, unlettered artist, who struggled throughout her career, both to make a mark and to make ends meet at home – was the owner of this contented combination of ecstasy and sadness. A voice that will never be forgotten so long as there is a needle that can be placed on shellac.

Arriving at the 14 thousandth and 6 hundredth station of this remarkable journey that has lasted for over a decade now, we also combine the celebration with a century of songs for this remarkable, remarkably underrated and incredibly ignored artist. In an active career that lasted for a little over three decades – of which the last decade was a pitiful smattering of singing assignments, few and far between – she did not even get to a 200 song mark, despite the fact that she recorded the type of superlative gems that are sampled above.

She was born on 4th January in 1940, at Jhunjhunu in Churu district of Rajasthan. Her mother’s name was Chand Bibi. When she was born, a learned person associated with the family said that she has taken birth under very auspicious planetary conjunctions, and suggested that the child should be named ‘Mubarak’.

Her father was a lorry driver. She was one of five siblings. Her voice was tuneful and her singing was impressive from her early years. The family moved when she was just a child, to Ahmedabad. Her father arranged for her tutelage in classical music under the guidance of Ustad Abdul Karim Khan and Ustad Riyaazudin Khan. After spending her childhood in Ahemdabad, she moved once again with family to Bombay. The burden of the family and its economic frailty did not allow Mubarak to attend school. She could read a little, and not write much. It is said that in later years, when she would go for recordings, she would commit the song and its renditions into memory during the rehearsals, and would sing from memory when the recording happened.

In circumstances not clear, she was introduced to Rafiq Ghazanvi, and impressed as he was with her singing, he called her for an audition and recording. Appearing in a recording studio for the first time, encircled by a large number of people she was unfamiliar with, and standing in front of the mike, ready to render a piece, she lost her nerve and no sound came from her. She left the recording studio in this extreme stage fright. The incident was repeated once again, this time for a recording session for a film produced by Ram Daryani. Given that her first successful recordings is from 1949, these failed attempts would be in the time frame of 1948-49.

Then in 1949, producer and actor Yakub gave her a chance to sing for his film ‘Aaiye’. This first successful recording was “Mohe Aane Lagi Angdaai Re”. Her singing was impressive and the word started to go around. Hansraj Behl invited her to sing 6 songs in the 1951 film ‘Phoolon Ke Haar’. Jamaal Sen called her to sing for him in 1953 – the film was ‘Daaera’. It is said that producer Kamaal Amrohi was so possessive of his film, and also very proud of its music and songs, that at a meeting of distributors, he was reluctant to show the film, but readily agreed to share the music and the songs.

In 1955, when ‘Devdas’ was under preparation, Sachin Da (SD Burman) called her over to sing the soulful ghazal of Sahir Sb – “Wo Na Aayenge Palat Kar. . .”. Bimal Roy, the producer and director was summarily impressed by her singing. Then in 1957 – recording of the mujra song for ‘Madhumati’ – “Hum Haal e Dil Sunaayenge. . .”.  Originally this was supposed to be a brief shot with just one she’er – “Tumhaara Dil Mere Dil Ke Muqaabil Ho Nahin Sakta. . .”, and just this one couplet and the next the couplet were recorded. On hearing the recording, Bimal Roy was so enchanted that he told Salil Chaudhry to make this a full song. And so, Shailendra was asked to write more and complete this ghazal (which incidentally based on certain references, is partly borrowed from the famous poet Daagh Dehlavi). So the part song was recreated as a full song and Mubarak Begum was called in for the recording once again.

The episode of ‘Hamaari Yaad Aayegi’ (1961) and the song “Kabhi Tanhaai’on Mein Yun. . .” is well known. Lata was the original choice of the producer Kedar Sharma and music director Snehal Bhatkar. But when an ego clash happened based on certain exchange between the producer and the singer, Kedar Sb replace Lata with Mubarak Begum, instead of giving in. The recording and the rendition – well, rest is history. This song became the signature recognition of the artist forever.

But this episode also possibly created a certain animosity between the singers. This, and then maybe the next major similar face-off between the two – when Shankar Jaikishan called in Mubarak Begum to record the wonderful hit song “Mujhko Apne Galey Laga Lo. . .” for the film ‘Hamraahi’ (1963), in a period when Lata was refusing to sing with Rafi Sb. It is Mubarak Begum’s claim (which she also mentioned to me in a private conversation) that she was systematically singled out to be sidelined by pressurizing producers and music directors. She has gone on record to state that there are instances (films ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’ and ‘Kaajal’ both from 1965) when songs originally recorded in her voice were later on replaced by newer recordings in a different voice.

For an artist already from an economically weak origins, such bias and prejudice wrought havoc with her personal situations. Fate dealt her some very difficult cards in her life. Her husband abandoned her quite early, and vanished without a trace. Her daughter was diagnosed with Parkinsons at a very early age. With just a handful of recordings in the 70s and then almost no assignments after that, it can be easily surmised as to the difficult years she spent in her advancing age. At one time, with the help of some industry friends and with the intervention of Sunil Dutt, who was active in politics and a minister in the govt. for some time, she was given a small flat in Jogeshwari area of Bombay, and a monthly pension of Rs 3,000 was allocated. In 2008, the Films Division prepared a biopic-documentary on her life, which was screened first time at the International Film Festival in Goa that year.

She passed away on 18th July, 2016.

In 2011, a program was held in Delhi, at which she performed live, some of her most famous songs, plus some songs at the request of the audience. After the performance, AK ji (of Songs Of Yore) and I went backstage to have a brief private conversation with her. She was weak and needed help to even get up and walk. We talked for about fifteen minutes – she had complaints about the industry, as to how she was treated, and how her assignments were changed, even after recordings that were approved for release. A sad end to a difficult life of such gifted artist.

For the century celebrations of Mubarak Begum, I have picked this gem of a lilting rendition from ‘Daak Babu’ – a film from 1954. Listening to this song, I was surprised to see that this song is not already showcased on our blog. Such a beautiful song – lovely words, sweet melody and such lovely rendition – how this song has escaped the attention of listeners is a surprise. The song writer is Prem Dhawan and the music is composed by Dhaniram.

Anyway, we have it up now on our blog, and for your listening pleasure. Centuries and centuries have come and passed. And many more are still awaited. Congratulations to Atul ji and all the band-wagoneers. Enjoy this enchanting song of first love.

The music of this song is clearly inflenced by the iconic been song from “Naagin”(1954).

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Blog Day : 3671 Post No. : 14552

We have read many accounts of artists, famous as well as obscure and those in between, in the blog. One theme that repeatedly gets played while discussing all these artists is that very few of them managed to have successful and fruitful careers throughout their lives. In most cases, a vast majority of aspirants failed to achieve any worthwhile success. Some relatively lucky persons managed to achieve some modicum of success though that was not enough for them to be considered as successful.

Then these are some people whose tales turned out to be rags to riches and hen back to rags !

We have described many such artists in the blog- for instance names like Master Nisar, Bhagwan Dada, Vatsala Kumthekar readily come to mind.

Why is it so that some successful artists managed to remain successful throughout their careers whereas some artists, having tasted crazy stardom could not handle that and came crashing down !

If one tries to analyse such cases, may be one can come to some conclusions that may help explain the matter.

I, with my experience, have this hypothesis that every individual needs to be good at (1) his chosen profession (2) his inter personal relations and (3) financial matters.

1. Good in chosen profession:-
There are a good number of people who believe that one needs to have “talent” in his chosen field and that would take care of the rest. That is hardly the case. One gets to show one’s “talent” only when one gets the “breaks”. And one needs qualities like patience, persistne, tenaciy, fighting spirit, strength of character, never say die spirit etc that are essential without which one can not get the right reaks. Once a person gets the break, he needs to make it count. If he fails at first, he still needs to persist.

Moreover, one needs to keep reinventing oneself instead of just doing the same old stuff again and again which after some time may turn stale and unappealing to the public.

2. Inter personal relations- No matter how “talented” a person may be in his profession, if he is unable to get along with people, including his patrons/ employers then one can be prety sure that the person will only get limited opportunities to prove his worth. A Sajjad Hussain, exteremely talented musician but quite poor in getting along with people, readily comes to mind. O P Nayyar is another such example though he managed to have far more success than Sajjad Hussain. But that was inspite of his poor man management skills, and not because of that. As soon as success began to desert him, O P Nayyar found himself getting snubbed by even those whom he had helped get established in their careers.

3. Financial matters- This third and final point is the most underrated one. No matter how much one knows about one’s profession, one needs to have good understnding of financial matters. If one is unable to handle one’s finances well, then the money will sooner or later part ways with the artist who is not savvy enough to be able to manage his finances well.

Sadly, Indians in the past were brought up to believe that poverty was noble while being rich was evil. Our leaders made us think so. With some exceptions, most leaders themselves came from moneyed families and continued to remain moneyed while glorifying poverty. Little wonder then that many artists who suddenly found themselves covered with money were unable to handle success. They had no clue what to do with all that money and they blew the money up.

There were some wise artists, who were like the political leaders. While they often championed the cause of povery on screen, they were savvy enough to soon turn movie producers and thus became the owners rather than employees of the movie making business. Ashok Kumar is aclassic example. He was a humble lab technician in fild world. A chance occurence found himself being made the hero of a movie opposite a lady who was his employer, no less ! And in less than a decade, the business savvy Ashok Kumar had become a film studio owner and film producer. Ashok Kumar was one filmy character who never saw and bad days, financially speaking, throughout his long career in Hindi movies.

People who woud fail to capitalise despite getting good opportunities were those who lacked the abbilities to sell themselves. It does not surprise me to realise that this category of artts are those who were rather poorly educated. So they did not have the wisdom that a well rounded formal education could have given them. They often did not know how to get heir due or how to survive in the film world.

If one looks at Mubarak Begam, one can see that she was an extremely talented playback singer no doubt but she lacked in the other departments that I have discussed. She had no idea how to sell her artistry among film producers as well as music directors who ultimately decide the playback singers for their movies. The fact that she was poorly educated (in fact uneducated) was a clear handicap for her.

The fact that she ended up in a poor financial condition is also a well known fact. And that should come as no surprise really.

With this background, let us have a song sung by an artist who was “talented” in singing but was not quite so in matters of “inter personal relations: as well as “financial matters”. I am talking about Mubarak Begam

“Rishta”(1954)was produced by Rashid Parvez and directed by Aslam for Rajasthan Productions, Bombay. This movie had Nigar Sultana, Suresh, Anwar, S Nazir, Rai Mohan, Leela Mishra, Neelam, Faizi, Agni, Sheikh, Ramlal, K R Thapar, Baby Chaand, Nadir, Kalyan, Vijaylaxmi etc in it.

This movie had seven songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Rishta”(1954) to appear in the blog. This song, a forgotten gem, is sung by Mubarak Begam. Pt Phani is the lyricist. Music is composed by K Datta aka Datta Korgaaonkar.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Kya khabar thhi yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaaayegi (Rishta)(1954) Singer-Mubarak Begam, Lyrics-Pt Phani, MD-K Datta

Lyrics

kya khabar thhi
yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaayegi
kya khabar thhi
yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaayegi
hum to samjhe thhe
mohabbat raas hamko aayegi
hum to samjhe thhe
mohabbat raas hamko aayegi

ashq aankhon mein machal kar
keh rahe hain baar baar
dil ki dhadkan dard ban kar
har ghadi tadpaayegi
kya khabar thhi
yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaayegi

ghamzadon ka koi na hoga
is jahaan mein gham gusaar(?)
ghamzadon ka koi na hoga
is jahaan mein gham gusaar(?)
zindagi ko har kadam par
maut bhi thukraayegi
raat rone mein kategi
din katega yaad mein
raat rone mein kategi
din katega yaad mein
ye judaai bewafaai
umr bhar tadpaayegi
kya khabar thhi
yoon tamanna khaaq mein mil jaayegi

“Piya Milan Ki Aas” (1961) was directed by S N Tripathi for Vijay Films. J S Cashyap was the producer. The movie had Ameeta, Manoj Kumar, Sunder, Pratima Devi, Jeevan, Nalini Chonker, Daisy Irani, Indira Bansal, Polson, S. N. Tripathi etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song from the movie was discussed in the blog per year from 2010 till 2014 and as a result five songs from the movie have been covered in the blog. If the same pattern was followed then this movie would have been YIPPEED by now. 🙂

Here is the sixth song from “Piya Milan Ki Aas” (1961) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mubarak Begam. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

The song is picturised as a mujra dance song on a lady whom I am unable to identify. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

In one of the past songs, we found Mubarak Begam singing a lullaby song which was the first song of that genre by her in the blog. Likewise, this song is most likely the first mujra song by Mubarak Begam to appear in the blog.


Gham chhodo ye saare zamaane ka (Piya Milan Ki Aas)(1961) Singer-Mubarak Begam, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-S N Tripathi

Lullaby was a much loved genre of songs in HFM during its golden era. Majority of lullabies are naturally sung by female singers and picturised on females playing mother to their young ones. The blog has 107 lullabies sung by 18 female singers (and a few male singers as well). Lata Mangeshkar dominates this genre. She has lent her voice in as many as 43 lullabies. Asha Bhonsle is a distant second with 13 lullabies. No other singer is in double figures and that includes legendary female singers like Khursheed Bano, Amirbai Karnataki, Rajkumari, Suraiyya, Geeta Dutt, Suman Kalyanpur etc.

Here is another lullaby song from HFM. This song is from “Aandhi Aur Toofaan”(1964).

“Aandhi Aur Toofaan”(1964) was directed by Mohammad Hussain for Kamran Films, Bombay. This “stunt” movie had Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Kamran, Jeewan, Ratanmala, Amar, Bhagwan, Anjum, Leela, Uma Dutt, Habeeb, Laxmi Chhaaya, Kamal Mohan, Munshi Munaqqa, Qamar, Fajlu, Mustafa, Khursheed, Anand, Arvind Kumar, Balram, Prem, Bihari, Moolchand, Sabir, Maula, Azam, Dawood, Ismail, Honey Irani, Saleem, Hercules etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

This lullaby song is sung by Mubarak Begam. It is the first lullaby song sung by her to appear in the blog. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

The picturisation shows a mother singing this lullaby to her twin kids. I am unable to identify the lady. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

This movie is from 1964 and I cannot help feel that the kids seen in the picturisation must have been in the same age group as a few of our regulars including myself. 🙂


Song-Chaand gagan mein ek hai (Aandhi Aur Toofaan)(1964) Singer-Mubarak Begam, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-Robin Bannerji

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

aasmaan jaaun kahaan

jis din se tera naam chamka
hum wahi insaan hain

chaahte hain hum tujhe jitna

mit gaye gar hum
samajh le
mit gaya tera nishaan
o sitamgar aasmaan
jaaun kahaan
