Missing Films of 1960s – 43
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It was a great day yesterday. 🙂 The sun completed its journey cycle of the southern hemisphere, and slowly started to edge over the tilt of the earth’s axis and initiated its journey of the northern hemisphere. The Uttaraayan is initiated. The sun has moved from the ‘dhanu’ constellation to the ‘makar’ constellation, as per the Indian solar calendar. The cycle of seasons moves from Hemant to Shishir. It is the start of the abatement of the cold weather (in the northern hemisphere).

It is a day of great celebrations all over the country. It is the Lohri festival in northern states; it is Pedda Pandaga in Karnataka and Andhra; it is Pongal in Tamilnadu; it is Sukarat in the central states; it is Maagh Bihu in the eastern states. It is the month of Maagh as per the Hindu calendar. On this day of Sankraanti, it is ‘Maagh Mela‘ a big festival in the villages and the centres of pilgrimage. It is considered most auspicious to have a dip in the holy rivers at sunrise on this day. Special pooja ceremonies are held in homes and in temples. Special sweet preparations, and food preparations are done for today. ‘Khichdi’, a meal prepared from rice and lentils is a must preparation for the day. People of all regions will prepare these dishes in large volumes and distribute to one and all.

It is also the beginning of the New Year, as per the Hindu calendar. And so, another Happy New Year greetings to all friends and readers of this blog. 🙂

Yesterday, 14th January, 2018, was also a very very special day for Atul-Song-a-Day. Ah yes, the team messages have been going back and forth since about 10.30 last night. The blog has reached a milestone of fantastic proportions. At just about 11 pm last night (Indian Standard Time), the visitors ticker on the blog main page crossed over from the number 9,999,999 to the number 10,000,000 – signifying that the blog has counted its 10 millionth user. Over a period of 9 years, 5 months and 27 days (till 14th Jan, 2018), now more than One Crore (or Ten Million) visits have been made to this blog.

Folks from all over the world come to our blog in search of songs and music and authenticated information, and yes, accurate lyrics. By any standards, this is a unique web location on this planet. I have said this earlier too – it is an ever enlarging compendium of history of Hindi films and Hindi film music san pareil, anywhere. It is not just the songs that are important – we have such a depth of information that is collated with the rigours of a research project. In our collective humble opinion, no other web site can boast of such a large number of film synopses, film reviews, persona bio sketches, historical compilations, etc., relating to Hindi films and Hindi film music. And not just that, there is in depth articles on so many topics that relate to festivals, historical events, traditions, religious sentiments, eminent personalities – all the stories tied to and told through a film song. That is one accomplishment that surely will take a lot, even to imitate.

It is a ‘labour of love’, to borrow a phrase from our own blog masthead. And this labour of love is effected through a team of good people; people who have come together just for the love of music, and people who have selflessly contributed to this project which is now of gigantic proportions. And key here is ‘good people’ – who only argue with each other for the sake of establishing either the authenticity of information, or the correctness of lyrics 😀 😀 . When good people come together and put together their efforts – only good things will be the outcome. 🙂

I introduce to the readers today, this debut song from the film ‘Eid Ka Chaand’ from 1964. In my effort to bring out the missing films from 1960s, I have already crossed over into 1967. But as I continue to keep checking backwards, I find that more and more films and / or their songs, from this decade at least are becoming available in public domain. ‘Eid Ka Chaand’ is also one such film, from 1964, for which apparently I missed locating this song which, as per the date, was posted back in 2013.

‘Eid Ka Chaand’ is a film from Vakil Productions, Bombay and is directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of actors includes Vijay Dutt, Chitra, Krishna Kumar, Niranjan Sharma, Hiralal, Wazir Mohammed Khan, Maruti, Fazlu, and Sadiq amongst others. There are nine songs listed for this film. The songs are written by Kaifi Azmi, and the tunes are composed by Alla Rakha (aka AR Qureshi). Four of these are sung by Laxmi Shankar, which in itself is a treat for music lovers.

The song presented today in the voice of Rafi Sb. The song tells of the qualities of good people, and how they are favoured by the angels in the heavens. The sentiments expressed in these words are so much the fundamental tenets of the Islamic tradition, which in of itself, is a focus on the goodness of human beings.

So quite an appropriate song to pull together all the celebrations and the goodness of people we discussed above. May the Sun’s traversal into Uttaraayan bring together all the warmth of this time and these people into your lives.

Happy Makar Sankraanti and a Happy New Year to all.

 

Song – Bhalaai Duniya Ki Jo Subh O Shaam Karte Hain  (Eid Ka Chaand) (1964) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Kaifi Azmi, MD – Alla Rakha (AR Qureshi)
Chorus

Lyrics

bhalaai duniya ki jo
suboh shaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain

aaa aaa aaa aaa
khuda ki raah mein lutaate hain maal o zar apna
wo apne ghar ko samajhte nahin hain ghar apna
aaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaaa aaaaa
zameen pe reh ke falak par muqaam karte hain
zameen pe reh ke falak par muqaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain

haaan aaa aaan
unhen sukoon nahin milta kabhi ameeri mein
ke baadshaahi bhi karte hain wo faqeeri mein
haan aaaa aaaa aaaaan
museebaton mein wo umren tamaam karte hain
falak pe unko farishte salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain

भलाई दुनिया की जो
सुबहो शाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं

आsss आsss आsss आsss
खुदा की राह में लुटाते हैं माल ओ ज़र अपना
वो अपने घर की समझते नहीं हैं घर अपना
आssss आssssssss आsssssss आsssss
ज़मीन पे रह के फ़लक पे मुक़ाम करते हैं
ज़मीन पे रह के फ़लक पे मुक़ाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं

हाँ आंsss आंsssss
उन्हें सुकून नहीं मिलता कभी अमीरी में
के बादशाही भी करते हैं वो फ़क़ीरी में
हाँ आंss आंss आंsssssss
मुसीबतों में वो उमरें तमाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं

Under this series today we have this beautiful ‘Sufi Qawwali’ composed by C.Arjun and which is written by none other than Sahir Ludhianvi for the movie ‘Nawaab Sahib-1978’. I have vague memories of watching this movie in late seventies or early eighties, but I do not remember much about this movie or its story line. The only memory of this movie that I had carried over in my growing years and thereafter was this song ‘Hum Mein Hai Kya Ke Hamen Koi Haseena Chaahe’ sung by Mohd Rafi.

Talking about qawwaalis, I remember, in my childhood there used to be programs of Qawwali muqabla (competition) and mushairas, and in ‘quawwali muqablas’ the names that easily come to mind is the name of Shakila Bano Bhopali, Jaani Baabu Qawwaal and Aziz Nazaan.

Earlier today, in another post I had mulled over the decline of films with mythological themes. Extending that concern further, I would also include the theme of Muslim religious and social films, which seem to be on the decline. Once again, in the 90s and later, I cannot really recall any significant film based on Islamic social and religious values.

A qawwaali that is true to its art form, a naatiyaa kalaam, presented in the honor of an un-named saint. Apparently, it is a some celebration at the dargaah of a departed saint. The words tell about the divine powers of just being there, and requesting in humble supplication, and the desires and aspirations will be fulfilled.

“Laila Majnu” (1953) is one of the earlier movies of Shammi Kapoor and here he had played the role of Majnu opposite Nutan playing Laila.

“Aakhri Sajdaa” (1977) is a forgotten low budget movie that escaped public attention. The reason why I and like minded music lovers are interested in this movie is for a very important reason. It is the last movie of Sajjad Hussain as a music director. And that is a big reason for music lovers to be interested in this movie, or to be more precise, in the songs of this movie.

Popular wisdom about Sajjad Hussain is that he last composed for a Hindi movie in 1963. Fortunately, that is not the case. He, despite his troubles with movie makers continued to work till late 1970s. his last movie as a music director was in 1977 and this movie was “Aakhri Sajdaa” (1977). The star cast for this movie includes Maya Sinha, Tabrez, Murad, Veena, Jagdeep, Helen, Husn Banu etc.
