Missing Films of 1960s – 37
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah so, new year resolutions – just like carrying heavy burdens. It is only so far that one can haul them. Some can lug them short distances, some can lug them for longer distances. And only rarely can one continue to bear a resolution, on and on.

Atul ji’s tenacity is a legend by now. Maybe not all resolves, but at least he has been able to maintain the ‘no-dot-days’ resolution for, now let us see – the last dot-day on record is 7th September, 2016. Wow – we now have a string of 484 days of continued posting, which translates to 1 year, 3 months 28 days. This blog has been updated with at least one new song every day, without a break – for the past 1 year, 3 months and 28 days continuously (the calculation includes the two end dates of this time period). There have been other breaks in earlier months of 2016 itself. There may or may not be a longer unbroken string of days prior to 2016, but that has to be checked in detail. I have not yet completely researched all the periods, prior to this duration.

So, 1 year, 2 months and 28 days – and counting. This one resolution has really stood the test of time and, I am sorry to repeat but I must – it displays Atul ji’s determination and persistence. 🙂

In his post from day before, he also discussed the resolution relating to debut films and yippeee films. Now these become slightly more complex endeavors. To quote an old adage – “great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending”. I am sure you have caught on to what I am leading to. Yes, it is easier to debut films, but it is much harder to yippeee them 😀 😀 .

There still are a few thousand films that are waiting to make a debut on our blog. But then, that is the easy part. One can catch hold of one song of a film, and voila – the debut is accomplished. But then to yippeee a film – well that is a different game altogether. We take HFGK as our reference. But we know that there is a huge share of films for which all songs are not yet traceable in public domain. And so the trudging pursuit continues, for many a film, where all songs are not available. To top this – i.e. to make it slightly more complicated, there is a fair number of films listed in HFGK, where the list of songs is not complete, and there are known cases where we have discovered unlisted songs, and even unlisted films. 🙂

So all this analysis, I assure you, makes for a very fascinating and sometimes even intriguing journey ahead. . .
All Aboard ??

🙂  🙂  🙂

And so pitching in for a the debut films – at least one-a-day. Now that brings up another interesting thought – this should make for a micro-blog within the blog – ADSAD – Atul’s-Debut-Song-a-Day. 😀 😀 Hopefully so. Let us see how far we can carry this now.

So. . . I am sure when you start reading one of the episodes of this series, you can be rest assured that the post carries a debut song. That is what this series is all about. And you must also be aware as to how this series came about. This is my homework assignment, allocated to me by Ben Katie (or Khyati Behn for those may not be familiar with the coding scheme of the Mastermind’s gang 🙂 ). Missing films – implying that this film is making its first appearance on the blog.

Today’s film is ‘Professor Aur Jaadugar’ from 1966. Now this film is one of those obscure productions that came and went without catching any attention. The film is produced under the banner of Tripil Films, Bombay. I am sure the investors meant this to be ‘Triple’, but then the copywriter probably did not have a spellchecker handy in those days. The director of the film is Sultan. Music director – another debut apparently. The name is Sardar Singh. For that period, it seems this is the only film in which this name appears. Other than an unreleased film titled ‘Baghaawat’, that was apparently attempted sometimes in 1960s. Outside of these two mentions, the name of Sardar Singh does not appear anywhere in the Geet Kosh.

Six songs are listed for this film. The lyricists name is listed as Anjaan. But there is an additional noting specifically for this song – the lyricist name is listed as K Malik. Once again, another name for which I am not able to locate another listing, other than this solitary song. I request our knowledgeable readers to please add more information if available, for the music director and lyricist.

The film is of the stunt genre with a cast of actors listed as Indira Billi, Indrajeet, Khursheed, Indira Bansal, Bob, Poonam Kapoor, Dalpat, Prince Arjun, Jilani and another score of names that are totally unfamiliar.

The singing voice in this song is that of Mubarak Begum. This is a nazm, with a structure of three lines per antaraa (so it is not a ghazal). But surely, this sounds endearing, both for the words written and the manner in which rendered by Mubarak Begum. Soft and relatively simple rendition, that makes it attractive.

As I was preparing for this post, I listened to the set of five songs that I have from this film. The choice of this song is driven in part by the fact that this song is already available on YT. Rest assured that the other songs are also very attractive in their own right, especially a lovely duet sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. But more of that as time progresses. Meanwhile, sit back and listen to, and enjoy this rare song, one of the rarer ones by Mubarak Begum.

 

Song – Khud b Khud Ishq Ka Izhaar Hua Jaata Hai  (Professor Aur Jaadugar) (1966) Singer – Mubarak Begum, Lyrics – K Malik, MD – Sardar Singh

Lyrics

khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai
sach kahen aap se. . .
sach kahen aap se kuchh pyaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

aap bhi apni nigaahon ko zara samjha den
is tarah pyaar se mujhko dekha na karen
husn e masoom. . .
husn e masoom gunehgaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

hum jafaa ishq ka dastoor na hone denge
pyaar ko itna bhi majboor bhi na hone denge
zulm kaisa mere. . .
zulm kaisa mere sarkaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

husn ki shaan na jalwon ke tamaashe le kar
hum to aaye hain ulfat ke taqaaze le kar
dil haqeeqat ka. . .
dil haqeeqat ka talabgaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है
सच कहें आप से॰ ॰ ॰
सच कहें आप से प्यार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

आप भी अपनी निगाहों को ज़रा समझा दें
इस तरह प्यार से मुझको देखा ना करें
हुस्न ए  मासूम॰ ॰ ॰
हुस्न ए  मासूम गुनहगार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

हम जफा इश्क़ का दस्तूर ना होने देंगे
प्यार को इतना भी मजबूर ना होने देंगे
ज़ुल्म कैसा मेरे॰ ॰ ॰
ज़ुल्म कैसा मेरे सरकार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

हुस्न की शान ना जलवों के तमाशे ले कर
हम तो आए हैं उल्फ़त के तकाज़े ले कर
दिल हक़ीक़त का॰ ॰ ॰
दिल हक़ीक़त का तलबगार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 03
——————————————————————————–

Sometimes when I am contemplating a post and thinking about how to start and what to write in a song post, there are those long forgotten thoughts and sayings or some impressions formed in earlier decades that come to mind. Today, though was very hectic for me, since morning I was on the move, and the heat in Mumbai was not helping. Some how all these factors culminated in me getting a headache by lunch time, which kept worsening as the day wore on. But in the office I had certain urgent things to see to, plus to meet certain people. Changes and advancements in one’s career, though one actively seeks and strives to achieve, also bring about the need of all sorts of adjustments and getting acquainted with new responsibilities. It was one of those days, where the transition was for me to absorb and to look ahead with positivism. But for the headache. Eventually I did kill it with paracetamol. So tomorrow is going to be a new day, promising and bright, God willing.

IN CUSTODY (1994) also known as MUHAFIZ was a film belonging to the parallel cinema based on Booker award nominated novel by the same name written by Anita Desai. The film was produced under the banner of Merchant Ivory Productions and was directed by Ismail Merchant. The star cast included Shashi Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Om Puri, Sushma Seth, Neena Gupta, Tinnu Anand, Ajay Sahani, Prayag Raj, Virendra Saxena etc. The film picked up published nazms and ghazals of Faiz Ahmed Faiz for songs which were jointly composed by Ustad Zakir Hussain and Ustad Sultan Khan. I had set out in detail the story of the film while discussing ae jazba-e-dil gar main chaahoon. For the sake of the background, I will give here only a gist of the story of the film.

The Unforgettable was the first album of ghazals and nazms launched by Jagjit-Chitra. It was released in 1977.

These days television and FM radio stations bombard the viewers/listeners with new film songs. A song becomes popular at once, or not at all. In a month or two, another song takes its place at the top of the Pop charts and it’s gone forever.

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 34
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The number 10000 is an important milestone. In cricket, batsmen aggregating 10000 runs or more in test matches and One Day Internationals (ODIs) are considered iconic batsmen. In athletics, athletes participating in 10000m run are regarded as persons of great endurance. It is the ultimate aim of long distance runners to win the 10000m running competition to prove their prowess. I find that there are 9 batsmen in test matches and 10 batsmen in ODI cricket who have achieved the distinction of aggregating 10000 and more runs. There may be nearly hundred athletes who have won 10000m run in recognised athletic competitions.

If I were to ask the question ‘what was the common between Shailendra, Jaan Nisar Akhtar and Nyay Sharma’, the obvious answer is that they were lyricists for Hindi film songs during the golden era of Hindi film music. There is one more commonality between them. All of them tried their hands in producing a Hindi film in the 1960s which resulted in great financial strains on them from which they did not fully recover. In fact, after the release of their films, their careers as lyricist was on the downhill and in case of Shailendra, it ended with his untimely death.

Presently, I am on a nostalgic journey of the 60s when I was blessed with listening to some popular non-filmy songs sung by the top playback singers and other singers of that time. In fact some of non-filmy songs of that time were as popular as Hindi film songs. Almost all top playback singers of that time like Talat Mehmood, Mohammed Rafi, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle had recorded non-filmy songs at one time or the other. If Hindi films songs have hidden gems which are being unearthed on this blog every day, there are also lesser known gems in non-filmy song segment which need to be brought to the notice of the readers of this blog for the sake of posterity.
