Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

aaj ki raat, ye kaisi raat
ke hum ko neend nahin aati. . .

If the previous song in the series was a lament about lonely nights and the longing that accompanies them, this song today is expressing the opposite emotion. The lovers are together, and the lady is now complaining that her lover does not have an iota of sleep in his eyes, and that she is worried for that.

The gamut of human emotions is spread out wide and far. And whatever be the emotional flavor one may select, one is sure to locate a song from Hindi films that expresses that emotion fairly accurately. Continuing with the saga of sleepless nights, here today we have a flavor of sleeplessness that is expressing a complaint against the lack of sleep on the part of the gentleman. The lady is cajoling and chiding him, trying to induce sleep in his eyes. She is asking him what toy he would like to have, and that she may bring to him that which he desires. But the imploring thread intertwined is that the lack of sleep in his eyes worries her.

Word are crafty. They are a double edge sword that say one thing and mean another. The scenario being played out on screen appears to be one of deception. Apparently Ranjeet is pursuing Navin Nischol, who in turn seems to have taken refuge at Rekha’s home. Now both Rekha and Navin Nischol are inside a room, with Ranjeet sitting outside. And the scenario being played out is as if Rekha is putting a baby to sleep inside the bolted room. The song is telling in words that a mother is trying to put a baby to sleep. That is what a person outside the room would surmise, as one listens to the words of the song emanating from the room. However, the scene, as is being played out inside, there is no baby being put to sleep. Rather, the lovers have been thrown together by themselves in the room. The lady is trying to fend off the advances of the gentleman, and is singing a complaint that there is no sleep in his eyes, and that she would rather that he would take shelter in sleep.

The word and the scenario present an interesting juxtaposition. The film is ‘Saawan Bhaadon’ from 1970. Memory serving right, I remember this film being promoted as the debut film for the lead pair of Navin Nischol and Rekha. As later inputs would clarify, technically this is not the debut film for Rekha, and that her first film ‘Do Shikari’ (1978) was eventually released after a delay of many years. I remember seeing the posters and hoardings for this film as a school going kid. And I also remember that a few songs of this film became very popular and were often played on the radio waves.

The film is produced under the banner of Deluxe Films, Bombay and is directed by Mohan Sehgal, a director of certain repute from that era. The list of actors is presented as Navin Nischal, Rekha, Shyama, Jaishri Talpade, Agha, Narendra Nath, Iftikhar, Krishan Dhawan, Ranjeet, Chandrima Bhaduri, Sushma, Madhukar, Devi Chand, Pardesi, OP Kohli, Dhruv Kumar, Ajeet Bengali, Mamaji, and Darpan Nille etc.

The films has seven songs, all from the pen of Verma Malik. The music is composed by the duo of Sonik Omi. Two songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here.

Today also is the remembrance day for Manohar Lal Sonik, the senior partner in this duo team of music directors. He had passed away this day (9th July) in the year 1993. This is the reminder nudge from our dear Prakashchandra ji, who has sent in the lyrics for this song.

So this was one of the lesser heard songs in its time, being overshadowed by its more popular siblings like “Sun Sun O Gulabi Kali”, “Kaan Mein Jhumka Chaal Mein Thumka” and “Aankhen Meri Maikhaana, Maikhaana, Maikhaana”. On screen the song is performed by a pre-makeover Rekha, chiding a naughty Navin Nischol, while Ranjeet is seated outside the door of the room.

Listen, view and enjoy.

Blog Day :

4277 Post No. : 15514 Movie Count :

4276

Although not listed in the anniversaries list on our blog, a message yesterday from Mahesh ji reminded that it was the remembrance day of the music director Robin Chatterji. Some more discussion followed in which it was mentioned that Rafi Sb had never sung under the  baton of this music director. Something tickled in the memory and I searched through the Geet Kosh listings and my collection, coming up with this wonderful solo of Rafi Sb, that he has sung for Robin Chatterjee, in a Bhojpuri film.

Remembering Robin Chatterjee on the anniversary of his passing away (2nd April, 1976).

As is the fate of many such lesser known and lesser appreciated artists, there is very little information available about him. His date of birth is recorded as 8th January, 1914. No details about his family or early years is available. One name is available – his first teacher of classical music was Keshab Ganesh Dhekan. Robin started his career with the venerable New Theatres, in their music department. He sang in the chorus line for NT films like ‘Adhikar’ (1938).

Some records indicate that worked as an assistant to music director Anupam Ghatak. He and Anupam had learnt music from the same teacher (KH Dhekan). Apparently he assisted Anupam Ghatak with some of his films during 1939-40.

Information about his earliest films as an independent music director is not very specific. Based on Geet Kosh listings, the first Hindi film where we see his name appear as a music director is ‘Raaj Lakshmi’ (1945). Listings show that he shared the music direction responsibility for this film with Dhiren Mitra. This film was produced under the banner of MP Productions, Calcutta (now Kolkata). This film has the distinction of being the debut film for Talat Mehmood, as a singer in Hindi films. Prior to this, he had sung under the pseudonym of Tapan Kumar, all recordings being for Bangla films or for non-film Hindi and Bangla songs. The debut solo songs for him in this film are “Jaago Musaafir Jaago, Kholo Mann Ka Dwaar” and “Tu Sun Le Matwaale”.

Browsing through the Geet Kosh, we find the following films listed with his name as the music director –

‘Raj Laxmi’ (1945) (w Dhiren Mitra)
‘Tum Aur Main’ (1947)
‘Wo Dono’ (1947)
‘Sabyasachi’ (1948)
‘Ratnadeep’ (1952)
‘Firdaus’ (1953) (w Roshan)
‘Pehli Shaadi’ (1953)
‘Afreeka’ (1954)
‘Majboori’ (1954)
‘Shobhaa’ (1954)
‘Dhaake Ki Malmal’ (1956) (w OP Nayyar)
‘Saiyan Se Bhaile Milanva’ (1964)
‘Chimni Ka Dhuaan’ (1973)

and possiblye ‘Miss Toofaan Mail’ (1958), for which the name of the music director is given simply as Robin.

Of these, the credits for ‘Raj Lakshmi’ are shared with Dhiren Mitra, for ‘Firdaus’ are shared with Roshan and for ‘Dhaake Ki Malmal’ are shared with OP Nayyar. The film ‘Saiyan Se Bhaile Milanva’ is a Bhojpuri film. And the film ‘Chimni Ka Dhuaan’ was probably completed sometimes in the first half of 1960s, but its release was delayed by many years, finally releasing in 1973.

The above list of films shows a career with sizeable gaps. However, there is other information that says he was also active, rather very active in the Bangla film industry, as well as in the non-film and folk song genres. There are more details available about his films in Bangla. He has scored music for many films starring Suchitra Sen, for whom he has preferentially used the voice of Sandhya Mukherjee.

One additional bit of information from my own memory. I do remember seeing the name Robin Chatterjee as the sound recordist in the credits of some films. I am not sure that such credits are referring to the same person – possibly so.

My personal experience, and also preference, is that to appreciate the music and songs of lesser known and lesser discussed artists is to pull together as many songs of such an artist, as possible, and then listen to them at a stretch, within one, two, three sittings. In my humble opinion, this way one gets a much better feel for both the quality and the quantity of the body of work for the artist. This in turn provides a much better and a wider appreciation of his or her work. In my effort to pull together information and body of work about such artists, I find that I have not yet come across a single instance where I may have failed to appreciate the quality of work created by the artist. For that reason, I humbly state that I never will dismiss an artist only because he or she is lesser known and his/her body of work is obscure and not easily accessible. The same has been my experience with the songs tuned and composed by Robin Chatterjee. We already have 24 songs on our blog, for which he is the music director – please check out in case interested.

About this film, there are no details available, other than the name of the production banner – Messers Technicians Enterprise. No listings of actors is available either. Only the name of the music director, the singers and a list of 4 songs is available.

About this film – it is produced under the banner of Messers Technicians Enterprise, and is directed by PL Santoshi. The name should  be very familiar – PL Santoshi has been active in Hindi films as a lyricist, story/screenplay writer, dialogue writer and director, since the mid 1930s, all the way to his passing away in 1978. The star cast is listed as Sujit Kumar, Saeeda Khan, Sabita Chatterjee, Tarun Kumar, Jahar Rai etc. It is a story about the sacrifices the wife (Saeeda Khan) makes to care for and nurse her husband (Sujit Kumar), who is suffering from the memory loss.

The Geet Kosh lists 4 songs for this film. There are two solos by Suman Kalyanpur, one solo by Rafi Sb (today’s presentation), and one duet of Rafi Sb and Sandhya Mukherjee. Although the name of the lyricist is not specifically mentioned in any source, it is very likely that PL Santoshi has most likely written some or all songs of this film. However, it needs to be confirmed.
[Ed Note: PL Santoshi has directed 20+ films during his career, and he has written some or all songs for 15 of them.]

Regardless, it is a naughty, wonderfully playful song of appreciation – appreciation of the beauty of a young belle. Listen and enjoy.

Thanks to Sadanand ji for providing the information about the film, from the book by Avijit Ghosh.]

[Ed Note: I believe that the lyrics in the Bhojpuri dialect are not difficult to follow. As the lines are perused, there may be a little transliteration required for one line. In case there is a comment/request, the transliteration of the full lyrics can be provided. The difficult line maybe, “peear peear galba pa chhitke lallaiya” or “पीयर पीयर गलबा पे छिटके लल्लइया”. In simpler Hindi, the line says “pyaare pyaare peele peele gaalon pe laali chhitki hai” or “प्यारे प्यारे पीले पीले गालों पे लाली छिटकी है”. 🙂 ]
[Ed Note: Thanks to dear AK ji for making the correction in the above transliterated line of lyrics.]

Blog Day : 3832 Post No. : 14840

Whenever new technoloy is introduced, people feel threatened. But with time, this new technology not only makes life easy and more enriched, it opens up new employment opportunities.

Take movies for example. Initial movies were silent movies. They required technicians as well as actors.

Movies began to speak from 1927, and in India talkies began in 1931. It suddenly opened up new opportunities. Actors who were ony needed to show their face till then, were now required to speak, and sing as well. Suddenly many good looking actors with poor voices found themselves unemploed.

Movies began to speak, which meant they could speak in various languages and so different language movie industries came up. Language related artists, namely dialogue writers, and lyricists became essential for these movies. Since need of songs was felt so music directors and singers were needed.

As one can see, the “simple” advancement in technology opened up new opportunities and that changed the face of movies. Personnel skilled in languages suddenyly found themselves in demand.

Since Hindi movies came into existence in early 1930s, it followed that most artists of talkies were born in and around early 1900s. So, these early pioneers of Hindi movies were born some one hundred years ago. Many of such early pioneers have already completed their birth centenaries.

This blog began on 19 july 2008. Some Hindi movie stalwards who have completed their centuries after than date are Leela Chitnis, K N Singh, K Amarnath, Gope, Kidar Sharma, Jagmohan Sursagar, Gopal Singh Nepali, Khursheed Bano, Bhagwan Dada, Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, Anil Biswas, Lalita Pawar, G P Sippy, Zohrabai Ambalewali, S D Batish, Kishore Sahu, Hansraj Bahl, Bharat Vyas, Shakeel Badayuni, Chitragupta, Kamal Amrohi, Qamar Jalalabadi, Roshan, C Ramchandra etc.

Lots of artists will have their centenaries in the coming years.

The year 2019 has just begun. Birth centenaries of several artists will fall this year.

Today is 14 january 2019. It is the birth centenary of Kaifi Azmi (14 january 1919- 10 may 2002), who was born on this day exactly one hundred years ago. He was born in Azamgarh in Eastern UP which happens to be about 180 km away from the place where I am based at present.

In the past, when I was based in states like MP, Maharashtra and Chhatisgarh, such birth centenary artists appeared to be born “distant” lands, but ever since I arrived in UP in 2015, I find that many of these famous artists, mostly lyricists, were born in nearly places. For instance, Shakeel Badayuni’s birth centenary fell on 2016, and this place Badayun was about 40 km from Izatnagar, Bareilly where I was based at that time. Azamgarh is 180 km away from Gorakhpur. This year will see the birth centenary of Majrooh Sultanpuri, and guess what , Sultanpur is also nearly, some 200 km away. 🙂

Coming to Kaifi Azmi, he was born as Sayyad Akhtar Hussain Rizvi. Like many other persons of literature, he was influenced by communism and Marxism and his literature reflected that. He became a CPI member in 1943 and a member of Progressive Writers movement in 1945.

He was one of the first shaayars to join Hindi movies as a lyricist. His first movie as a lyricist was “Buzdil”(1951) where S D Burman was the music director. He penned three songs in the movie. All these three songs are already covered in the blog.

According to my calculation, Kaifi Azmi penned some 360 songs in 93 movies. His last movie was “Ek Alag Mausam”(2003) whose songs were released after he had already left for the heavenly abode.

Here is the filmography of Kaifi Azmi.

As can be seen from the filmography, Kaifi azmi has penned many memorable songs that need no introduction. For instance, who can forget the songs of “Kaaghaz Ke Phool”(1959), “Haqeeqat”(1964), or the songs of “Kohra”(1964) and “Anupama”(1966). In “Heer Ranjha”(1970), he not only penned the lyrics but also the dialogues, the dialogues being entirely in verse ! One can look at his filmography and recall the songs from those movies.

On the occasion of his birth centenary, here is a song from “Bahu Beti”(1952). This movie was directed by C L Dheer for Badoda Theatre Limited Bombay. This “social” movie had Geeta Bali, Amarnath, Jaswant, Vijaylaxmi, Rashid, Leela Mishra, S Nazeer, Nazirabai etc in it.

This movie had seven songs in it. Six songs were penned by Kaifi azmi and one by Vishwamita Adil. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

The first song from the movie was deleted from the movie because of objections of censors. Those were the days when censors could often by quite sensitive towards matters that are taken in their stride today. The lyrics of the song were considered objectionable by the censors. Just imagine, a song penned by Kaifi Azmi was deleted from the movie because its lyrics were found objectionable !

The song luckily continued to remain in the records.

Just as fortuitously, this song happens to be 200th song of Kaifi Azmi appearing in the blog.

Here is this special song from Kaifi Azmi, on the occasion of his birth centenary. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Music is composed by S D Batish. Since the video of the song is not available, one can only gess about the picturisation. Seeing that Geeta Dutt’s voice appears in six out of seven songs, one can assume that she had sung for Geeta Bali, the lead actress of the movie. By that assumption, it would seem that this song was picturised on Geeta Bali. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye (Bahu Beti)(1952) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-S D Batish

Lyrics

mose chanchal
mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye
mose chanchal
o mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye
koi chupke se aaye
koi man ko lubhaaye
koi aakar jawaani ko sang le jaaye
mose chanchal
mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye

gudgudaati hai tanhaai hardum mujhe
chhedta hai akele mein mausam mujhe
raat sapne dikhaaye
bhor kaanon mein gaaye
thhandi thhandi hawa mora ghoonghat uthhaaye
mose chanchal
o mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye

naachti hain chaman mein hawaayen nayin
seekh lin aaj dil ne aaj adaayen nayi
koi hilmil ke gaaye
koi painge badhaaye
koi majboot baahon mein jhoola jhulaaye
mose chanchal
o mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye

more nainon se masti barasne lagi
ujli ujli si ye maang dasne lagi
koi chunri audhaaye koi jhumar pahnaye
koi ujli si maang mein sindoor lagaaye
mose chanchal
o mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhali naheeen jaaaaye

Hullo to Atuldom

‘Saajan Mere Main Saajan Ki’ is a movie released in 1980. It was directed by Hiren Nag and produced by Ramraj Nahata. It had a star cast of Ashok Kumar, Raj Babbar, Raj Kiran, Rameshwari, Kaajal Kiran, Shashikala, Dina Pathak, Madan Puri etc. Songs were written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I have never seen the movie and so I have no idea what it was all about.

Time to Yippeee another film. Today’s film is ‘Humjoli’ – not the one from 1970, but the one from way back in 1946. This film has 10 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Nine songs have already been showcased here on our blog. The last song for this film was posted in November last year. In that post, Atul ji has commented that the 10th song appears to be elusive, and is yet to be uploaded online. Today, as I checked for this song, I am unable to track it anywhere as yet. I could be wrong, as I have been earlier, maybe just limited by the way I searched for it. So I decided to upload this from my collection.

The Voice of Mukesh #70
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film industry has seen many stars, who, by logical analysis, should not have been. Let me mention the names of four male singers, who have become legends now – Saigal Sb, Rafi Sb, Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Besides all four of them being singers who have rendered songs that have become timeless in their essence and popularity, there is one more common thread that runs through their lives. None of these four had any recognized formal training in classical music. And yet, their voice, their renditions, the emotional alchemy contained therein – has an element of something that can only be attributed to providence.

Missing Films of 1960s – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this post, I return to one of the requests of Arvinder ji that has been pending for some time now. His reminders keep coming to me, and there are more pending requests from him lined up in my inbox.

This song can well be the continuation of the ‘Memory Ticklers’ series. A lilting melody that was often heard on the radio when I used to regularly listen, and then later it seemed to have faded from the memories. Depend on Arvinder ji to recall and remind to dig up such gems to once again be played and listened.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ऊ’
“ऊंची एड़ी है मांग टेड़ी टेड़ी दुपट्टा रंगदार कर के”

I am glad that I posted this song when I did. As per my search, this is possibly the last song of Rafi Sb that starts with ‘ऊ’, and not yet posted on our blog. Just made it by cat’s whiskers. Otherwise, I would have been expressing regrets, just like for ‘ई’.  🙂

Today (1 october 2015) is the 109th birth anniversary of S D Burman (1 October 1906 – 31 October 1975).

SD Burman was a well established and well respected music director by the time I became aware of his name (sometime in late 1960s). But like everyone else, he too made his debut sometime. It is difficult to imagine it today, but his earlier career was full of struggles and his career as a music director in Hindi movies was almost a non starter. He was given his initial breaks in 1940s by Sasadhar Mukherjee of Filmistan who signed him up for “Aath Din”(1946) and “Shikaari”(1946). The music of these two movies did not create much impression at that time. It was his next movie with Filmistan,namely “Do Bhai”(1947) that helped SD Burman get some foothold in the industry. He kept scoring music for the subsequent movies of Filmistan.
