Total upto 1963 730 movies 2331 2742 1921 625 143 51

It can be seen from the table of 1964 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 133 songs in movies released in 1964. As many as 122 of these songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 46 movies of 1964 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 39 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 11 Lata songs belonging to 7 movies of 1964 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Baaghi”(1964). This stunt movie was directed by Ramdayal for Mukul Movies, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Leela Naidu,Jagdeep, Mumtaz, Jeevan, Veena, Ulhas, Helen, Naaz, Vijaya Chaudhary etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it, including two Lata Mangeshkar solos. Two songs from the movie (including one Lata Mangeshkar solo) have been covered in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Baaghi”(1963). Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

This lesser known song is a rare song and only its audio seems to be available. From the sounds of it, it appears to be a mujra dance song or so. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. The song is quite a hummable song to listen to


Song-Tujhe iski khabar kya (Baaghi)(1964) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

wo ghar mein aaye hamaare
khuda ki kudrat hai
kabhi hum unko
kabhi apne ghar ko dekhte hain

tujhe iski khabar kya
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tere aane pe kya beeti
tere jaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

tumhaari ik hansi ne
kar diya zakhm e jigar gehra
tumhaari ik hansi ne
kar diya zakhm e jigar gehra
main apne hosh mein kab hoon
ajab kuchh haal hai mera
chaman kya jaan sakta hai
ki veeraane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

na dekho berukhi se
ye haseen armaan kehte hain
na dekho berukhi se
ye haseen armaan kehte hain
navaajish hum pe kab hogi
jawaan toofaan kehte hain
bataaye kya ki is dil pe
sanam khaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

tumhaari to adaa hogi

tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tere aane pe kya beeti
tere jaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

‘Baazooband’ (1954) was produced by Ashalata Biswas under the banner of Variety Productions jointly with Ramanand Sagar who also directed it. The star cast included Balraj Sahni and Sulochana Chatterjee in the lead with Roopmala, Anwar Hussain, Om Prakash, Radhakrishan, Shanta Kanwar, Noor Jahan (Sr.), Noreen Linford etc in the subsidiary roles. The story, screenplay and dialogues were written by Ramanand Sagar.

The main theme of the story of the film is that in a well-settled family, a distraction by way to some vices especially when ‘other woman’ comes into the life of the husband, can wreck the family – both financially and emotionally. It is the faith and the trust with which an understanding wife can steer the husband from the wrong path. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Seth Surajmal (Balraj Sahni), his wife, Radha (Sulcohana Chatterjee) and his two children are a wealthy and happy family. But Surajmal has one weakness. Come evening and he is magnetically attracted to make a visit to Amma’s kotha where he is under the magical spell of the dancer Chanda (Roopmala). He watches her dance and gift costly jewelries to her on his each visit . By mid-night, he returns home fully sozzled in alcohol. This is Surajmal’s daily routine.

The regular patrons of Chanda include Saanwariya (Om Prakash) and Bankelal (Anawar Hussain). Saanwariya, once upon a time a wealthy merchant, has now become almost pauper and spend his entire time in the kotha. Bankelal on the other hand is financially weak and looking for some way to raise money so that he and his foreign fiancé Josephine (Noreen Linford) can settled abroad. For this, Bankelal has found a way out by joining hands with Chanda to financially fleece Surajmal with a false promise to her that when she has collected sufficient money from Surajmal, he will marry her and settle abroad.

Radha’s mother and younger sister try to impression upon her to confront Chanda but she takes a stand that the fault lies with her husband who is mesmerised by Chanda. So, she has to take measure to bring her husband to the correct path. She is sure that her devotion towards her husband and the children would one day bring him back to senses. But would it not be too late for Radha?

In the meanwhile, hearing the news that her mother is unwell, Radha leaves for her mother’s place leaving the children with Surajmal. Bankelal finds a opportunity to place Chanda in Surajmal’s house in the guise of looking after his children. One day, when Surajmal is under the influence of liquor, Chanda gets him to sign a will that after his death, Chanda will be the sole owner of all his assets including the house.

Bankelal’s next move is to get Surajmal killed in such a way so as to appear as accidental fall from a hill top while under the influence of liquor though he would by pushed to death by Chanda. This plan is accidentally heard by Saanwariya. He cautions Radha and at the same time, he decides to tackle Bankelal. While both Bankelal and Saanwariya seems to be enjoying their drinks in the former’s house, Saanwariya mixes poison in the drinks as a result of which Bankelal dies.

Simultaneously, as per plan, Chanda after making Surajmal drinks a lot, takes him to a hilltop in the pretext of a romantic walk. However, Radha has been following them. When Chanda is struggling to push Surajmal from the hilltop, Saanwariya also reaches the spot and kills Chanda by stabbing. He throws her dead body from the hilltop. Radha reaches the spot and rescues Surajmal. Police arrives and arrests Saanwariya when he tells them that he had killed Bankelal by poisoning him and stabbed to death Chanda. Surajmal has now a changed man spending his evenings with his family. All is well that ends well.

The problem with the film is that the story is too familiar for the audience as they would have watched many films with such story in the 40s and early 50s. There is no harm making one more film on such a story provided the director has presented the story in a different cinematic presentation. But it is not. As I watched the film, I did not find the film gripping to an extent that I would complete the film in one sitting.

Balraj Sahni did not have much scope to show his performance as an actor as most of his scenes were with Chanda (Roopmala) in a drunken state. Sulochana Chatterjee as Radha did her best to reflect in her performance the balancing act between her husband and the children while tackling the husband’s problems. Roopmala in the role of Chanda performed very well both as a dancer as well as a vamp. Ramanand Sagar did not make the film melodramatic to draw the sympathy for the role of Radha nor he made Chanda more villainous to make the audience to hate her character. This would have been certainly a negative for the audience of that time.

Ramanand Sagar collaborated with Ashalata Biswas in three films – ‘Badi Bahoo’ (1951) as a story, screenplay and dialogue writer followed by ‘Mehmaan’ (1953) and ‘Bazooband’ (1954) – the last two also as a director and producer in partnership with Ashalata Biswas’s Variety Productions. Unfortunately, despite the good music, none of these films succeeded in the box office front. ‘Bazooband’ (1954) was the worst performer on the box office to such an extent that after this, Ashalata Biswas’s film production company, Variety Productions did not venture into the film production. Ramanand Sagar did not direct any film for the next 6 years until ‘Ghoonghat’ (1960).

On the positive side of the film, ‘Baazooband’ (1954) had 5 beautifully tuned songs from Lata Mangeshkar (out of 7 songs) under the baton of Mohammed Shafi. 3 songs from the film have been covered in the Blog.

I am presenting the 4th song, ‘aarzoo ye hai ki nikle dam tumhaare saamane’ from the film ‘Baazooband’(1954). The song rendered by Lata Mangeshkar is picturised on Roopmala who is dancing to seduce Balraj Sahni in the presence of Anwar Hussain who is the instigator for such an act. Om Prakash is a moot spectator to his dislike. The song is written by Daagh Dehlvi which is set to music by Mohammed Shafi.

It may be a rare occasion in a film in which as many as 4 songs (out of 7) have been picturisedon Roopmala who is not only the mujra dancer but also a vamp in the film. All the 4 mujra dance songs picturised on Roopmala were choreographed by Gopikrishna. Roopmala (real name, Mumtaz) was a popular dancer of Hyderabad. She started her filmy career with ‘Basera’ (1950).

In this song, everything is best – Daagh Dehlvi’s words, Lata Mangeshkar’s voice, Mohammed Shafi’s tune and musical arrangements, Roopmala’s dance performance with seductive expressions and gestures and choreography by Gopikrishna.

Today, December 13th 2020 is the 34th Remembrance Day of Smita Patil who today would have been 65 years of age, perhaps donning the hat of a director.

What an incredible filmy journey Smita Patil had in a short span of about 12 years! She acted in 70 Hindi films of which 18 films were new wave films. In addition, she acted in about a dozen non-Hindi new wave films. At the age of 23, she got her first National Award for the Best Actress for her role in ‘Bhumika’ (1977). After 3 years, she was bestowed with another National Award for the Best Actress in ‘Chakra’ (1980). At the age of 29, she was one of the juries in the Montreal International Film Festival (1984). At the age of 30, She got Padma Shri Award.

She had achieved fame and glory in a short period and left her legacies for the new generations of film enthusiasts to appreciate. Other eminent actresses had taken much longer periods to achieve more or less the same status in their acting career. It is amazing to note that during her 12 years of filmy career, she worked with many eminent directors of new wave/parallel cinemas such as Shyam Benegal, Satyajit Ray (Bangla), Mrinal Sen (Bangla), G Arvindan (Malayalam), T S Nagabharana (Kannada), Jabbar Patel (Marathi), Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, Ketan Mehta (Gujarati and Hindi), Kumar Sahani, Muzaffar Ali, Saeed Mirza, Govind Nihalani etc. In the sphere of mainstream cinema, she acted under the directors such as Raj Khosla, B R Chopra, Ramesh Sippy, Mahesh Bhatt, Prakash Mehra, Mohan Kumar, J Om Prakash, J P Dutta etc.

Smita Patil (17/09/1955 – 13/12/1986) was born in Pune to a freedom fighter turned politician, Shivajirao Patil, and a social worker, Vidyatai Patil. After completion of her school in Pune, Smita Patil joined her parents in Mumbai by which time, her father had become a cabinet minister in Maharashtra. She joined St. Xavier’s College for graduation. It is during her college days she got selected as a Marathi news reader in Mumbai Doordarshan following the start of its telecast in October 1972. (I have also watched her occasionally reading Hindi news as well).

In one of his interviews, Shyam Benegal has revealed that after the successful release of his first film ‘Ankur’ (1974), he had planned for two films for which he was looking for a new girl having an earthly look (colloquially called ‘desi’ look). When he noticed Smita Patil as a Marathi newsreader on Doordarshan. he felt that she had an attractive presence and has the required photogenic face as a village girl. She fitted very well as a second lead in his next film ‘Nishaant’ (1975). Shyam Benegal met Smita’s parents through a common acquaintance. Her parents readily agreed but Smita point-blankly refused to work in films. Her mother, Vidyatai Patil who had seen ‘Ankur’ (1974), didn’t want her to refuse the offer off-hand. It took some time for her mother to convince Smita to work in the film ‘Nishaant’ (1975).

However, before ‘Nishaant’ (1975) could start, Shyam Benegal took her in ‘Charandas Chor’ (1975), a children’s film which would be a sort of familiarisation process for Smita Patil. According to Shyam Benegal, unlike Shabana Azmi, who was a FTII graduate in acting, Smita Patil had no formal training in acting. But she was a quick learner and an intuitive actor. The only problem with her was that she had multiple interests and as such during shooting, her mind would get diverted to activities other than acting. She was an ace photographer and always carried her camera during the shootings. During the break, she would take candid photographs of her co-stars. For the initial period of shooting for ‘Nishaant’ (1975), and ‘Manthan’ (1976), Shyam Benegal was not only the director but also had to behave like her school teacher for imposing the discipline.

Shyam Benegal says that despite all her sundry interest on the sets, Smita gave an excellent performance in ‘Nishaant’ (1975) as well as in ‘Manthan’ (1976). He narrated an anecdote during the shooting of the film in a village near Rajkot. A few college students had come to watch the shooting and were enquiring about the heroine. Smita Patil was sitting with four-five local women squatting against the wall. Someone from the unit pointed out in the direction of Smita Patil to the college students. They refused to believe him saying how could a heroine sit with local women? Her character in the film got so much assimilated with the local women that she could not be recognised as a heroine.

Shyam Benegal had initially considered Shabana Azmi for ‘Bhumika’ (1977). Later on, he felt that Smita’s body language and dialect seemed culturally apt for Hansa Wadkar’s character which required Smita’s visual presence from the beginning to the end. There were contradictions, complexities and also sexuality in the character of Hansa Wadkar and Smita had excellently handled all these in her role which fetched her the National Award for the Best Actress. According to Shyam Benegal, it was only after this award, Smita Patil took the acting career seriously.

After working under the direction of Shyam Bengal in ‘Kondura’ (1978) a bilingual film in Hindi and Telugu, there was a gap of 5 years during which Shyam Benegal had no occasion to take Smita Patil in his films. The reason could be that Shyam Benegal was associated with a couple of high budget films in which Smita Patil did not fit into the character.

‘Mandi’ (1983) was the last film Smita Patil worked under the direction of Shyam Benegal. In my view, this film is the best among Shyam Benegal’s films as also performance-wise the best of Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil for Shyam Benegal. Both of them have situations in the film in which they have to display different moods even in a single scene which only a few actors can perform to create a lasting impression on the audience .

With so much name and fame Smita Patil earned in acting in off-beat films, what were the reasons for her to seek the foray into mainstream commercial cinema? She did not fit into the idioms of commercial cinema. If I have inferred her personality on the basis of the articles written on her, a strong role rather than the money was her consideration to work in the films. I got some explanations for her entry into mainstream commercial cinema from a book ‘Smita Patil – A Brief Incandescence’ (2019) written by Maithili Rao. It was because of an incidence which hurt Smita Patil to such an extent that she decided to work in commercial cinema forthwith.

Sometime in 1981, one eminent successful director known for making ‘middle of the road’ films promised Smita Patil a role which she loved it. Later on, she came to know through the press that she was replaced by an actress who was also a successful star in commercial cinema. Within a few days from this incidence, Smita Patil signed two stupid films on a single day – ‘Badle Ki Aag’ (1982) and another one (probably,’Tajurba’ 1981). She wanted to prove that she was also a star material. Both these films did not fare well on the box office front.

Fortunately for Smita Patil, her next two mainstream films, Praksah Mehra’s ‘Namak Halaal’ (1982) followed by Ramesh Sippy’s ‘Shakti’ (1982), both with Amitabh Bachchan clicked at the box office which made Smita Patil a star-actor. After these successes, she did a spate of mainstream films, the notable films among them being ‘Aaj Ki Aawaaz’ (1984), ‘Ghulaami’ (1985), ‘Aakhir Kyun?’ (1985), ‘Amrit’ (1986). During this period, Smita Patil continued to work in parallel films such as ‘Ardh Satya’ (1983), ‘Tarang’ (1984), ‘Raavan’ (1984), ‘Giddh’ (1984), ‘Debshishu’ (1985) and ‘Mirch Masaala’ (1987). The end result was that in terms of numbers, her mainstream commercial films far exceeded her parallel films.

Smita Patil worked with Raj Babbar for the first time in ‘Tajurba’ (1981). It was during the shooting of ‘Bheegi Palkein’ (1982) when both of them developed a close relationship. Their closeness resulted in working together in as many as 20 films. Their affairs culminated into the marriage. Raj Babbar was already married to Nadira Babbar with two children.

Smita Patil died on December 13, 1986, 15 days after giving birth to her son Pratiek due to complications arising out of childbirth.

Shyam Benegal was back into new wave films by making a triology on Indian Muslim women with ‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubieda’ (2001). in a recent interview, he said that after Smita Patil, he has worked with many actresses but none of them came close to the versatilities of Smita Patil.

On the occasion of Smita Patil’s 34th Remembrance Day, I have selected a song from the film ‘Mandi’ (1983) which is directed by Shyam Benegal with Smita Patil in the role of Zeenat. It is a mujra song, ‘chubhti hai ye to nigodi mujhe bhaari angiya’ sung by Asha Bhosle and picturised on Smita Patil. This raunchy song is written by Insha which is set to music by Vanraj Bhatia.

The film starts with this mujra song as credit titles are rolling. One can see Naseeruddin Shah as a worker in the kotha, Shabana Azmi as Madam of the kotha and Harish Patel as police who is watching the mujra through the window. The mujra starts with the classic ‘sit-down’ pose with alluring expressions of Smita Patil. In the last part of the song, she gets up and steps into a vigorous dancing in kathak style.

According to Vanraj Bhatia, Asha Bhosle who had sung many songs for him, refused to sing this song by saying that it was a dirty song. She cancelled the recording three times. It was Ismat Chugtai who convinced her by saying that she had sung many kotha songs. Why not one more? The reason as to why Vanraj Bhatia persisted on Asha Bhosle even after she cancelled the recording three times could be that only Asha Bhosle could do justice to sing to sound like a raunchy song.

Although the name of the lyricist is mentioned as Insha, I feel that he is Syed Insha Allah Khan ‘Insha’ (1756-1817). He had used his nom de plume ‘Insha’ in some of his poems. He had also used in the song under discussion. Insha was a contemporary of Mir Taqi Mir in Mughal court. Later, he shifted to the court of Nawab of Awadh in Lucknow for getting a higher stipend. He was a multilingual poet who wrote poems in Urdu, Persian, Hindi, Punjabi, Kashmiri, Bengali, Marathi etc. I have gone through some of his ghazals and nazms. He seems to be a witty and unconventional poet. His prose work, ‘Rani Ketki Ki Kahaani’ is regarded as the first short story written in Hindi.

The video version has the full song interspersed with some dialogues, while the audio version is without dialogues and does not have the last stanza.

“Patangaa”(1971) was directed by Kedar Kapoor for K R Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Shashi Kapoor, Vimi, Ajit, Rajendranath, Sajjan, Wasti, Ashok Kumar, Laxmmi Chhaaya, Zeb Rahman, Jagdish Raj, Rammohan, Leela Mishra, Praveen Pal, Geeta, amina Bai, Ram Avtar, Shekhar Purohit, Prem, Shiv Chandar, Ravindra Kumar, Harun, Lal, Nasir, Balram, Santosh, Rajkumar etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these seven songs:-

Jhoom ke gaa yoon aaj mere dil 18.06.2012

Here is the eighth and final song from “Patanga”(1971). This song is sung by Rafi. Neeraj is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised on Shashi Kapoor, playing a kotha going “barbaad insaan” who is lip syncing this song while Laxmi Chhaya performs the mujra. One is reminded of a similar song viz Jhanak jhanak tori baaje paayaliya(Mere Huzoor) which was also a Shamkar Jaikishan composition. But unlike that immortal song, this song fails to leave much of an impression. I had not heard this “Patanga”(1971) song before whic means that the song had failed to become popular during its time.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, all the eight songs of “Patanga”(1971) get covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

I wonder why Guru Dutt (09/07/1925 – 10/10/1964) who till 1958, had acted in lead roles in films of his own banner only, decided to act in films outside his banner. His first film outside his banner in a lead role was ’12 O Clock’ (1958) followed by ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962), ‘Bharosa’ (1963), ‘Bahurani’ (1963), ‘Suhaagan’ (1964) and ‘Saanjh Aur Savera’ (1964). While his first film outside his banner as a lead actor may be an aberration, some of his later films as an actor outside his banner may probably have been out of financial compulsion following the box office failure of his film ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959).

There is always hidden desire of any intellectual film director to direct a film on a story of his choice and on his terms. But very few producer/financier would agree to produce/finance such a film from the point of view of the commercial consideration. For Guru Dutt, ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) and ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) were two such films which he was keen to bring them to the notice of the film audience.

I came to know from an article by Nasreen Muni Kabir in https://scroll.in that the idea of making ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) had virtually begun in 1948 when Guru Dutt had written a story out of the frustration when he came to Mumbai in 1948. The post-partition period was difficult to adjust to a new environment. It was also difficult for the Padukone family to sustain in a big city without work. And Guru Dutt was not getting film offers. So, he wrote the story titled ‘Kashmakash’ making a poet the protagonist who faces the problem in getting his poems published. The story remained in the limbo until he established himself as a film director of repute.

In 1951, in the wake of his commercially hit film, ‘Baazi’ (1951) for which Sahir Ludhianvi had written popular songs, Guru Dutt had become a successful film director. I remember to have watched an interview of a film celebrity during its B/W avatar (I do not recall now as to who was the film celebrity). That film celebrity mentioned that during the making of Baazi’ (1951), Sahir Ludhianvi had given to Guru Dutt a copy of his collections of poems ‘Talkhiyaan’ (1944). Guru Dutt was very much impressed with a couple of nazms which included ‘jinhe naaz hai Hind par wo kahaan hai’. This nazm matched with the gloom of a poet in his story. Guru Dutt had decided to include this nazm whenever he makes the film based on his story, ‘Kashmakash’.

Since Guru Dutt was not sure of getting producer or financier for such a film and also the response on the box office due to gloomy nature of the story, he felt that he will have to take the financial risk in producing the film. For that he required his own resources to make the film as a producer. This explains as to why Guru Dutt, in the meanwhile, concentrated on making saleable light comedy films like ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) and ‘Mr and Mrs 55’ (1955) to fill his coppers for producing a film on a subject for which box office outlook was uncertain.

Abrar Alvi, in Satya Saran’s book ’10 years with Guru Dutt’ (2008) has mentioned that during one of the shooting schedules of ‘Mr and Mrs 55’ he narrated the story of a real life Gulabo, a courtesan to Guru Dutt which fascinated him to give a shape to his story, ‘Kashmakash’. In the meanwhile, he got busy with producing ‘C.I.D’ (1956) which also got the tremendous success at the box office. Now, Guru Dutt was ready to produce and direct the film of his choice. ‘Kashmakash’ became ‘Pyaasa’ (1957). Contrary to Guru Dutt’s expectation, ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) did good business at the box office and also got critics’ appreciation.

Probably, the success of ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) gave Guru Dutt a confidence in producing another of his favourite gloomy subject. That the fame and glamour attached to a successful film director has its cost in terms of personal spaces. A single failure would wipe out all the gains of a successful director earned over the years. A commercial failure would get more highlighted than the appreciation of his brilliant work of the past. The box office failure of ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) overshadowed the brilliant work as a director. What hurt Guru Dutt most was not the box office failure but the way the critics slammed him as narcissist and as his own biopic. After a gap of over a decade, Guru Dutt’s box office disaster got recognition as one of the greatest classic Hindi films.

The box office failure of ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) has affected the banner, Guru Dutt Films financially. There was not enough money to sustain the staff of Guru Dutt Films. It is during this time, Guru Dutt seems to have found a way of raising funds by acting in the films made outside his own banner during 1962-64. He also took the decision not to direct any films in future. His next two films under his own banner – ‘Chaudhavin Ka Chaand’ (1960) and ‘Sahab Bibi Aur Ghulam’ (1962) became box office hits, redeeming his film production banners.

‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962) was his first film in a lead role outside his banner after the debacle of ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959). The film was directed by Mahesh Kaul. The main star cast included Guru Dutt, Pranoti Ghosh, Bipin Gupta, Rajkumar, Kanhaiyailal, Asit Sen, Bela Bose, Rani, Jeevankala, Radheshyam, etc. The film was based on a story, ‘Baikunther Will’ by Sharatchandra Chattopadhyay.

So far, 4 songs out of 8 from the film have been covered on the Blog. Here is the 5th song, ‘ab laagi naahin chute raama chaahe jiya jaaye’ from ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962) which is presented here. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Meena Kapoor on the dancers, Rani and Jeevankala, respectively. There is also a male voice in a couple of lines in the song which, I feel, is that of the music director, Anil Biswas. The song was written by Shailendra.

Half-way through the dance, Guru Dutt makes a surprise entry and finds that his step brother (I guess, he is Rajkumar Jr.) is drunk and seen in the midst of the dancers. In a fit of rage, Guru Dutt assaults him. Some of patrons push Guru Dutt out of the courtesan’s house after which the singing and dancing resume.

“Gopinath”(1948) was produced by Brij Kishore Agrawal and directed by Mahesh Kaul for Shanti Lok Chitra Production, Bombay. The movie had Raj Kapoor, Tripti Mitra, Nand Kishore, Latika, Sachin Ghosh, Anwari Bai, Feroz, Niranjan Tiwari, Mahesh Kaul, Randhir, Baby Zubeida etc in it.

This “social” movie had nine songs in it that were penned by three lyricists namely Soordas, Meerabai and Rammurty Chaturvedi. Two of the three “lyricists”, viz Soordas, Meerabai lived hundreds of years ago and their creations could be used without any need to pay any royalties to their descendants.

Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Gopinath”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Rammurthy Chaturvedi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ninu Majumdar.

Audio as well as video of the song is available. The video has the word Latika printed over it. I wonder if that tells us the name of the lady lip syncing the song. One can see a very young Raj Kapoor playing the patron of the lady.

This Week, That Year – 4

20Sep – 26Sep, 2010

Post by post analysis of the weekly output – is an exercise that is getting more involved and detailed. As we progress, we are finding newer varieties and newer variations that add on to a now growing list of things to look at and check for. OK, so let us see what insight this week brings in.

Let’s first do the numbers. The challenge analysis and other details are presented in the table below. With one dot day (on 23rd Sep), this week saw as many as 34 posts. Except for one repeat, all songs are from different movies. So, 33 movies got featured that week. As many as 12 films made their debut. And of the 33 films that were showcased that week, 22 films have been yippeee’d over the past 10 years. Of the remaining 11, I am shifting two film to the twilight zone of Conditional Yippeee status, which I had proposed last week. The films are ‘Panchaayat’ from 1958 and ‘Dr Vidya’ from 1962 – I will give more details little later in write up.

I will highlight one change in notation. Last week I had proposed that for the songs which are listed for the film, but which are possibly not available in any format, will be denoted by ‘LFe’ – short for ‘Lost Forever’. Now there is a rethink about this terminology. At least one response to me was that ‘Lost Forever’ is a despairing notation, putting a sort of finality to the issue. So I propose to change this terminology to ‘UT’ indicating that the song is ‘Untraceable’ at least for now.

Two major milestones were announced this week. With the sixth song posted on 20th Sep, 2010, the blog reached the 3000th post. Given where we were at that time, ten years back, this was an enviable milestone in itself. Looking back, it may seem not very significant, on account of where we have now reached. But at that time, breaching the 3000 barrier was a great event. With the same song, we also had the first 1000th milestone for an individual artist. This very same song also became the 1000th song by Lata ji, posted on our blog. This was the first such accomplishment on the blog, for an artist.

We had just one guest post this week. Raja ji has done the post for the 3000th song plus the 1000th song of Lata Mangeshkar.

This week, we see many interesting variations and differences in the information that is available about the songs contained in specific films. Here are the details,

  1. ‘Deewaana’ (1952) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. Then the footnote to this film indicates that one more song was recorded for this film in the voice of Shamshad Begum. The inference to be drawn is that this 9th song is an unused song from this film. This song is also available, and has been posted on our blog.
  2. ‘Panchaayat’ (1958) – the gap in information is quite remarkable here. There is one song listed in Geet Kosh that is simply not traceable anywhere. The words of the song are “Main Ye Soch Kar Us Ke Dar Se Utha Tha”. Ah yes, rings a bell. This song appears in the 1964 film ‘Haqeeqat’. I replayed the movie to check, but did not find even a snippet of this song.
    However, viewing the film gave me some good information. The theme song of this film, “Mil Ke Baitho Jodo Bandhan” is a multi part song that appears in the film five times. We have this song on the blog, but we only have the portion that is heard in background as the film titles are being presented on screen. This song recurs on four more occasions later in the film.
    So two updates to this film that must be put on the blog. First, the theme song has to be updated for all the multi part segments. Second, then this film should be declared Conditional Yippeee, because the song “Main Ye Soch Kar. . .”, in all likelihood will remain untraceable, as far as this film is concerned.
  3. ‘Parwaana’ (1947) – Geet Kosh lists 9 songs, whereas we on the blog had added two more which we have extracted from the film soundtrack. One of them – “Balam To Pe Sabar Pade” is a very special song. This is the very last recording of KL Saigal Sb. It is an incomplete recording. However, the director has used this as a background song near the end of the film, by modifying the situations somewhat.
  4. ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs, whereas in the film there is one more song, actually a qawwaali, in the voice of Shamshad Begum and Usha Mangeshkar. So on the blog, we have one more song than the list in Geet Kosh.
  5. ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960) – On the blog we have one additional song, actually a snippet that is played at the end of the film. This snippet is not listed in the Geet Kosh.
  6. ‘Dr Vidya’ (1962) – This song list mismatch here is quite confusing. There are seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, out of which the song a serial no. 2 “Yahi Din Hain Bhanware Mann Arey Tum Nahin Samajhte” is not traceable. It does not appear to match with any other song in the film. And then there are two songs in the film which are not listed in the Geet Kosh. There is a fun qawwaali – “Yoon Hans Hans Kar Dekho Na Idhar”, which is performed on screen by Helen and Prem Chopra. And then there is this romantic song of promises to meet again – “Main Kal Phir Miloongi Isi Gulsitaan Mein”. So we have 8 songs of this film already posted, and there is one still pending whose fate is not known. Possibly then ‘Dr Vidya’ also merits to declared Conditional Yippeee.
  7. ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1958) – This film has 8 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. However, on our blog, we have one more additional song posted, which is essentially a poem rendition.
  8. ‘Doctor’ (1941) – I had mentioned about this film in the previous episode of this series. There is a small bit of confusion in the song list of this film in the Geet Kosh. GK lists 11 songs for this film. This film was declared as Yippeee’d on 29th August, 2014. In that post, Atul ji had written that ten songs of this film are already posted, and the eleventh song was being posted, declaring this film to be Yippeee’d. However, as we examine the lists, there is a bit of confusion that prevails overall.
    For starters, the song “Aai Nit Nai Rut Ki Bahaar” is listed twice in GK, once with Ila Ghosh as the singer, and once with Pankaj Mullick as the singer. This threw me off so completely, that I spent three four days two weeks ago, trying to trace the Pankaj Babu version of this song. Most responses I got from within the circle of collector friends was that this song does not exist. Secondly, the iconic Pankaj Babu song – “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar” is not listed in GK. I went over the GK entries in detail, including the addenda and the corrigenda. But could locate no other information.
    After some back and forth discussions, it is concluded that there is an error in the GK listings, in that the song listed in GK at serial no. 11 – “Aayi Nit Nari Rut Ki Bahaar” in the voice of Pankaj Babu, is incorrect, and that the words of this song should be “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar”. If this change is made, then the listings can be reconciled correctly.
    There is still one more variation in the GK listing and the blog list. The GK listing shows the two songs viz. “Kab Tak Niraasha Ki Andhiyaari” and “Bhai Jagat Ujiyaari Dekho” as two separate songs. On our blog, these two songs appear in the same post, so essentially the blog list does not show the latter song.

Now a word about the song covered in this post. The film is ‘Zindagi Ya Toofaan’ from 1958. As per the Geet Kosh, this film has 10 songs listed. All the songs come from the pen of J Nakshab, a name that we are also familiar as Nakshab Jarchavi. Music is composed by Nashaad.

The film is produced under the banner of Serafim Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Nakshab Jarchavi, the lyricist. The cast of actors is briefly given as Nutan, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Minoo Mumtaz, Johnny Walker, and Yakub. The film tells the story about the love of a young man, role played by Pradeep Kumar, for a dancing girl, role played by Nutan. Nine songs of this film are already posted here on our blog. This is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board.

The song itself is a wonderful expression in words about the exchanges that happen between the lover and the beloved. Each couplet, each line is such a beautiful visualization of that relationship. The video clip for this song could not be located. So it is not feasible to comment on the picturization of this song. Given the music and rendition, one can surmise that this song is presented as a mujra on screen. Expectedly, the song is performed by Nutan and Minoo Mumtaz. Both are dancing girls entertaining the guests, which would include Praeep Kumar and Yakub.

This wonderful ghazal presented as a mujra, is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board, and we can declare this film to be Yippeee’d now.

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 77
————————————————–

If nothing else, then this week 10 years ago has to be characterized as the ‘Anmol Ghadi’ week. I am sure it was by design that every day of this week (actually six days of this week, barring the last day), the first song posted every morning is a song from the 1946 film ‘Anmol Ghadi’. This film has 12 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. As we entered this week ten years ago, five of these were already posted on the blog. That left seven. I am sure Atul ji took it upon himself to get the ‘Yippeee’ status for this film in a quick order, by posting one each of the remaining seven songs on each day of the week. And be done with it.

Well almost. Starting from 6th September in 2010, all the way through 11th September, Atul ji held true to his promise and posted the first song on these six days, that belonged to this iconic film. It almost sounds as if the ‘Atul-Song-a-Day’ blog was transformed into ‘Anmol-Ghadi-Song-a-Day’ for this week.

But then, we arrive at 12th September, the last song of this film which would have brought fame and recognition – well, it could not be posted. We have six posts on the day, but no ‘Anmol Ghadi’. I am keen to know from Atul ji, what happened that made him miss this target.

I had actually scanned through the posts for ‘Anmol Ghadi’ songs for that week. And I came to realize one thing. You see, the concept Yippeee had not yet been invented on this blog. And Atul ji was just going after this film, because of its music. As I checked the complete set of songs of this film on the blog, I find that the continuous posting thing had actually started on 4th September. On that day, Atul ji has simply written that this film has 12 songs, that three are already posted and that the film has wonderful music, so let us just bring it on board quickly. That was the simple thought behind continuously posting a song from this film, as the first song of the day, from 4th to 11th Sept. then the 12th date is missed. And the final song of the film gets duly posted on 13th.

And so, my eager anticipation awaits a response from Atul ji. “Why 12th was missed.’’

Here is the chart of posts for the week, ten years ago.

The numbers for the week -,

The posting continued at the then current brisk rate. The week saw a total of 43 songs posted, with the  daily rate being six songs per day, with one of the days showing up with seven. The 43 songs came from 37 films – six of them from ‘Anmol Ghadi’ and another two from the film ‘Milan’ of 1967. The remaining 35 songs are one each from 35 films.

The week witnessed as many as 13 debuts. Thirteen films made their appearance for the first time on the blog. No films got yippeee’d, with ‘Anmol Ghadi’ being the close call of almost there. Of the total 37 films featured that week, 29 have been yippeee’d during the interim decade, whereas 8 films are still awaiting completion of their songs on the blog.

The physical post numbers stretched from 2914 to 2956. So actually a blog century – the 29th, has happened in the previous week.

The guest post activity was fairly low in those times. Of the 43 posts, Atul ji accounts for 38, and only five posts came from the contributing team. Three of these posts are from Raja ji, one from Santosh Ojha ji, and one very interesting post on Shammi Kapoor from – yes, you guessed it – Greta Memsaab. A very interesting and informative post that identifies many of the side players in this group dance song – “Dekho Ab To, Kisko Nahin Hai Khabar” from the film ‘Janwar’ of 1965,

This post, having been delayed quite a bit, comes on the last day of the week under analysis. On this day, there is one film still pending for Yippeee status. The film is ‘Patanga’ from 1971. Two songs of this film are remaining to be posted. With this post we bring one of them on to the blog. Which means that this film is now just one song away from being inducted into the Yippeee hall of fame.

The song that I present today is a mujra dance song, being performed on screen by Laxmi Chhaya. There is an assortment of audience, as we regularly get to see in most mujra dance songs in films. I can clearly identify three of them. Wasti and Ajit are sitting together on a white sofa, and the bespectacled and balding Haroon is on a chair next to Ajit. The song is the regular mujra type choreography, with the dancer complaining that she has wasted her youth getting entangled with “you”, the addressal of “you” here being directed towards any of the many males sitting in the audience.

‘Patanga’ is a social film, produced under the banner of KR Films, Bombay and is directed by Kedar Kapoor. The list of actors reads as – Shashi Kapoor, Vimmi, Ajit, Rajendra Nath, Sajjan, Vasti, Ashok Kapoor, Lakshmi Chhaya, Zeb Rehman, Jagdish Raj, Ram Mohan, Leela Mishra, Praveen Pal, Geeta, Ameena Bai, Ram Avtar, Shekhar Purohit, Prem, Shiva Chandra, Ravindra Kumar, Haroon, Lal, Nasir, Balram, Santosh, and Rajkumar.

Interesting side note here that this is third film of actress Vimmi, who appeared in only 5 films during her short career that lasted from 1967 (debut in the film ‘Hamraaz’) to 1974 (‘Vachan’ being her last film).

The film has 8 songs. As mentioned above, after this post, we now have just one more song remaining for this film. Of the eight songs, four are from the pen of Neeraj, three by Hasrat Jaipuri and one penned by Indeewar. This song is from the pen of Neeraj.

The music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Yes, remembering Jaikishan today, on his remembrance day today. He passed away on 12th September in 1971. Interesting to note that this film was certified by the Censor Board on 20th August, 1971. It is possible that this film was just released, or maybe even released after, the passing away of Jaikishan.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by dear Avinash ji.

And so, the penultimate song of ‘Patanga’ of 1971 – a run of the mill mujra performance as demanded by the formula.

“Man Ka Meet”(1950) was directed by Ratibhai Punaatar for Ajit Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Nirupa Roy, Dulaari, Sarita Devi, Shanti Madhok, Manhar desai, Babu Raje, hhagan Romeo, Bhagwan Das, Ibrahim, Maruti, Kamlakant, Barkat Virani, Haridas, Popat, V D Popat etc in it.

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

Today (6 July 2020) is the 16th remembrance day of Sardul Kwatra (1928-6 July 2004). As a tribute to him, here is a song from “Man Ka Meet”(1950). This song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardul Kwatra.

Only the audio of the song is available. For the lyrics, it is clear that it is a mujra song. I request our knowledgeale readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash scrapwala.
