ik arz meri maan lo daftar ko jaana hai
mangal ka din hai aaj koi itwaar nahin hai

These two lines in the song “kyun garm sard hote ho takraar nahin hai” from ‘Chokori’ (1949) sung by Mohammed Rafi has made me to present this song which was not available on-line until SAREGAMA uploaded the audio clip of this rare song on one of the video sharing platforms in early 2019.

‘Chakori’ (1949) was the first film of Ravindra Dave as a producer which he produced under the banner of Ramesh Pictures. The film was directed by his younger brother, Ram Narayan Dave. The star cast included Nalini Jaywant, Bharat Bhushan, Manorama, Om Prakash, Randhir, Narbada Shankar, Uma Dutt, Cuckoo etc. The story, screen-play, dialogues and songs were written by Mulkraj Bhakri.

Ravindra Dave was the son of Karachi-based Seth Ratilal Dave who had a flourishing business of film distribution for North Indian territories under the name, Empire Talkie Distributors. This was the first film distribution company which undertook to distribute India’s first talkie ‘Alam Ara’ (1931) in Northern India. He joined his father’s film distribution company and helped his father in procuring distributions rights of films produced in Mumbai.

Dalsukh Pancholi was the uncle of Ravindra Dave who was already in film production and the owner of Pancholi Studio in Lahore. Ravindra Dave became the Production Manager in Pancholi Films. He got his first assignment as a director in Pancholi’s ‘Poonji’ (1943) along with Vishnu Pancholi. With his talent firmly established in film making, Pancholi gave him the assignment of writing the script for ‘Dhamki’ (1943) and directing it.

When Ravindra Dave was directing Pancholi’s next film, ‘Patjhad’ (1948), the partition happened and the communal riots that broke out in Lahore made him and Pancholis to come to Bombay with the completed reels of the film which was later released in 1948 after completion of the film in Mumbai. For both Pancholis and Ravindra Dave, it was like starting their filmy career afresh. Ravindra Dave directed about 30 Hindi films during 1943-69. Later, he shifted to Gujarati films producing and directing around 20 films until 1985.

Mulkhraj Bhakri, the story, screen-play, dialogue and song writer of ‘Chakori’ (1949) was born in Gujranwala in Punjab (now in Pakistan). His father, Moolchand Bhakri was the store-keeper in Indian Army Service Corps (IASC) at Pathankot. He went to school in Lyallpur (now Faisalabad in Pakistan). After completion of his Matriculation examination in 1931, he was keen to join the film industry.

Mulkraj Bhakri started his career as Cinema Manager. It took him a long time to get his first break in the film ‘Arsi’ (1947) as story and dialogue writer. After the success of the film, Mukraj Bhakri got two films – ‘Barsaat Ki Ek Raat’ (1948) and ‘Papiha Re’ (1948) for which he wrote story, dialogues, screen play and lyrics. Both these films were being produced in Lahore studios. Unfortunately, both the films became the victims of partition and were temporarily abandoned. These films were later released in some parts of India.

Mukraj Bhakri came to Bombay (Mumbai) after the partition along with his brothers, Lekhraj Bhakri, Deshraj Bhakri and Rajkumar Bhakri who were all associated with Hindi films. Mulkraj Bhakri became the rallying point for displaced film artists and technicians from Lahore. Bhakri who was the ‘de facto’ producer of the film ‘Chunariya’ (1948) gave Ravindra Dave his first assignment in post-partition India to direct the film. Next, Ravindra Dave got Prakash Pictures’ ‘Saawan Baadhon’ (1949) to direct. He also directed his uncle Pancholi’s first film in post-independent India – ‘Meena Baazar’ (1950).

Note: The profiles of Ravindra Dave and Mulkraj Bhakri up to 1949 are based on articles written by character actor, Janki Dass in film magazine ‘Sound’ – May 1949 and July 1949 issues, respectively.

So far, 7 songs (out of 11 songs) of ‘Chakori’ (1949) have been covered in the Blog. The song under presentation is the 8th song from the film to appear on the Blog. Song is written by Mulkraj Bhakri which is set to music by Hansraj Bahl.

In Hindi film songs, I had not come across the Urdu word ‘dehleez’ (threshold; may be चौखट in Hindi) until Gulzar saab used it in mudke na dekho dilbaro in ‘Raazi’ (2018). I was pleasantly surprised to note that Mulkraj Bhkari had used the word ‘dahleez’ in the song under presentation as early as 1949. Interestingly, Gulzar saab has also used the Hindi equivalent word ‘Chaukhat’ in the song, chhod aaye ham wo galiyaan in the film ‘Maachis’ (1996).

Enjoy the ‘wooing and pleading with the beloved’ song.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke” (1993) had six songs, four of which are already on the blog as under,

Bambai Se Gayi Poona, Poona Se Gayi Dilli” – a wonderful post describing life at the various “pur”s and one “Nagar” and had 31 comments

Yoon Hi Kat Jaayega Safar Saath Chalne Se” – 3000th day of blog, post by Rajaji

Ghoonghat Ki Aad Se Dilbar Ka” – has a synopsis of the movie

and “Mujhse Muhabbat Ka Izhaar Karta“.

Here is the next one.

It is inside a garment Factory. Aamir Khan (Rahul) is trying to get his sister’s or jija’s factory running so that he can look after his niece and nephew/s who are not in a mood to accept him as their  guardian. To add to Rahul’s troubles the ladies working in the factory are in a mood to ‘rag’ their new boss. The songs were written by Sameer and tuned by Nadeem Shravan. It is sung by Kedarnath Bhattacharya popular as Kumar Sanu.

We are revisiting this movie to remember Tahir Hussain on his birth anniversary (19th September 1938- 10th february 2010) who was the producer of HHRPK (acronym of the movie). Incidentally Aamir Khan (hero of HHRPK) is his son and he was the main lead in two movies of TV Films, Tahir Hussain’s production house. Tahir Hussain, who was the brother of Nasir Hussain (maker of some classics of the 60s, 70s, 80s etc.) has classics like ‘Caravan’ (1971), ‘Anamika’ (1973), ‘Zakhmee’ (1975) etc. to his name as producer. He was the director of ‘Tum Mere Ho’ starring Aamir Khan in 1990.

20th September also happens to be the birth-date of the director of HHRPK -Mahesh Bhatt. He turns 72. He is known for movies that focused on relationships for example ‘Arth’, ‘Saransh’, even his initial ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ showed the relation between half-brothers played by Vinod Khanna and Danny almost like ‘Naam’ starring Kumar Gaurav and Sanjay Dutt. Mahesh Bhatt movies also had other regular Bollywood masala in it – action, emotion, drama and great music/ songs.

Hullo Atuldom

31st July, was that date in the monsoon of 1980, when the favourite singer of an entire generation left this world without any warning. There are anecdotes about the happenings of that date which keep surfacing now and then. We have heard that he was recording for Laxmikant -Pyarelal that day, a duet with Lata Mangeshkar, and was asked to stay back to record a songlet (if there is such a word) which was to play at the end of the movie and the words of that:

Tere aane ki aas hai dost
shaam phir kyun udhaas hai dost
mehki mehki phiza yeh kehti hain
tu kahin aas paas hai dost
tu kahin aas paas hain dost

seem like written for remembering this legend called Mohammad Rafi.

There is not a single day when a song played over the air-waves or on TV don’t remind us of his wonderful voice. There is not a single day when we don’t hum or sing a song that was a classic because he had sung it. There may be many who try to sing like him but God made only one Mohammad Rafi. Has anyone tried singing “kya hua tera waada, woh kasam woh iraada” in one breath, it is not easy. But when we hear Rafisaab render it, it feels like cakewalk. I will not even throw a challenge to sing “naache mann mora magan dhikna dhik dhik”. But I will definitely ask a Rafi clone to sing “yahoo, chahe koi mujhe junglee kahe” and follow it up with “champi tel maalish”. Both are fun songs abut they need a full-throated voice and range from lower to higher notes. I am not even going to list his soulful songs here; that would be really long and every single one as much on my personal playlist as the ones that I have mentioned here.

I would love to know how he modulated his voice to suit the on-screen actor. He was good for a Mehmood and Rajendra Kumar and sounded different in the same film. He sang for Guru Dutt and Johnny Walker and we could visualize the difference in the characters. No more examples as I have always said, I am not qualified or knowledgeable enough to comment or write about legends.

But I will definitely quote an Amitabh Bachchan song which said:

na phankaar tujh sa tere baad aaya, Mohammad Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya

Getting directly to today’s song. As

rasm e duniyaa bhi hai
maukaa bhi hai
dastoor bhi hai

I will just give the details of the song which is from the 1981 release “Ham Se Badhkar Kaun”. We have thus far, only one song from this movie which is this one. That means we haven’t visited this movie in the last nine years. Atulji has given the gist of this movie in that post in a single line- ‘run of the mill’. I will just add that it also relied on the lost-and-found theme. Today’s duet is Asha Bhonsle with Mohd.Rafi (duet number 533) performed on-screen by Mithun, Ranjeeta, Bhagwan Dada and chorus.

Blog Day :

4306 Post No. : 15578

Another wonderful discovery, another song that I had never heard before. The film is ‘Zindagi’ from 1956. The music composition is by Mohammed Shafi.

Mohammed Shafi is the name I was trying to get to also, on 30th April, which is the remembrance day for him. After getting the post in place for C Arjun that evening, I was not able to pull together this post, for remembering Mohammed Shafi Sb.

Once again, another very talented music director about whom, not much information is available. After much searching, I am able to locate a very brief article by a gentleman named Qaseem Abbaasi on the web site ‘Apnaarchives.org’. I am including some details from that article in this post.

He was born sometimes in 1920s. His father’s name was Majid Khan, who passed away when Shafi was very young. Majid Khan was the grandson of the renowned beenkar Bande Ali Khan. Bande Ali was also a master of swar-pradhan gayaki and was the brother of Abdul Karim Khan Sb’s father. As I searched for more details about Bande Ali Khan, I reached the website Swarganga Music Foundation, and a somewhat detailed article on Bande Ali Khan. Browsing through this article, I discover that one of the more famous disciples of Bande Ali Khan is Imdaad Khan of Etawah, who is none other than the grandfather of Ustad Vilayat Khan (28 Aug, 1928 – 13 Mar, 2004), the renowned Sitar maestro of India.

A little clue about his early years can be surmised from a family connection that is mentioned. Mohammed Shafi’s wife, Zeenat, was the sister of Ustad Vilayat Khan. Vilayat Khan Sb’s family came originally from Etawah (close to Agra in UP). Apparently, Vilayat Khan Sb’s grandfather, Imdaad Khan, moved from Etawah to Gouripur in Mymenshingh district in undivided Bengal (now in Bangladesh). Vilayat Khan Sb was born in Gouripur. Sitar and classical music was a family tradition with them, and the family and their music tradition is known as Etawah gharana.

It can be surmised that Mohammed Shafi Sb was also based in Bengal in his early years. One, being married to the sister of Ustad Vilayat Khan, a family based in Mymensingh at that time. Second, Mohammed Shafi started his career at New Theatres, Calcutta (now Kolkata), working as a musician and assisting RC Boral, Pankaj Mullick and KC Dey. It is suggested that he contributed as a musician to films like ‘Kapaal Kundala’ (1939) and ‘Aandhi’ (1940).

In early 1940s, along with the migration of many artists from Calcutta to Bombay (now Mumbai), Mohammed Shafi also moved to Bombay. Although not listed in Geet Kosh, Qaseem Abbaasi Sb has written that he assisted music director Bashir Dehlavi in the 1942 film ‘Ujaala’. In this film, Prithviraj Kapoor played the role of a sitar player, and apparently, some special pieces were composed by Mohammed Shafi for this film.

Later on, he had a long association with Naushad as an assistant music director. For the film ‘Mughal e Azam’, the sitar pieces were prepared/played by both Abdul Haleem Jafar Khan Sb and Mohammed Shafi. It’s said that K Asif used to send a car to pick both of them for playing Sitar for the background music.

He got his first break as independent music director 1946 with the film ‘Haqdaar’. He continued to work till mid 1970s, but has only about 22 24 films to his credit. The number maybe 23, if we consider ‘Badi Maa’ (1974) as a re-release of ‘Tanhaai’ (1961). In parallel, he continued to assist many directors as a musician and music arranger.  Following is the list of films for which has composed music,

  • 1946  Haqdaar
  • 1946  Kaango
  • 1947  Do Naina
  • 1947  Rishta (unreleased)
  • 1947  Shikaarpuri
  • 1949  Anokhi Sewa – along with Dhoomi Khan
  • 1949  Bedard – along with BN Bali and Ram Prasad
  • 1949  Gharaana
  • 1951  Hulchul – along with Sajjad Hussain
  • 1952  Annadaata
  • 1952  Krishna Kanhaiya – along with BS Kalla
  • 1953  Aabshaar – along with Ghulam Haider & Bhola Shreshtha
  • 1953  Daara
  • 1954  Baazooband
  • 1954  Mangu – 2 songs, rest by OP Nayyar
  • 1956  Zindagi
  • 1960  Mohabbat Ki Jeet
  • 1960  Shriman Balasaheb (Marathi)
  • 1961  Tanhaai – later released as Badi Maa in 1974
  • 1965  Kite Fight (Wo Kata)
  • 1967  Shrimant Mehuna Pahije (Marathi)
  • 1971  Iraada – along with Vitthal-Mumtaz
  • 1974  Bari Maa – same as Tanhai (1961)
  • 1975  Dayaar-e-Madina

To his credit – Suman Hemadi Kalyanpur sang her debut song in the film ‘Mangu’ (1954), a wonderfully soft lorie “Koi Pukaare Dheere Se Tujhe” under his music direction. And again, singer Hemlata made her debut under his music direction in the film ‘Iraada’ (1971) – the songs “Main Ankahi Kahaani, Sadiyon Ki Hoon Nishaani” and “Main Jaan Ke Badle Mein Le Loongi Dhadakta Dil”.

A connected piece of information is that he also gave music under different names – Shafi M Nagri / Shafi Nagri / Shafi. All the films that he composed under these pseudonyms are stunt / fantasy type films. The list is,

  • 1953  Shamsheerbaaz
  • 1954  Sher Dil
  • 1955  Carnival Queen
  • 1956  Baghdad Ka Jaadu
  • 1957  Diler Daaku
  • 1959  Chini Jaadugar
  • 1959  Circus Queen
  • 1966  Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chirag – along with Shaukat

[Author’s Note: The name Shaukat for the above listed film ‘Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chirag’ (1966) is most probably Shaukat Dehlavi.]
[Author’s Note: I thank dear Arun ji. His comment on two missing films by Mohammad Shafi prompted me to re check and update the list of films above.]

Adding the above listed eight films, the total films by Mohammad Shafi comes to 32.

In the latter half of 1970s, Mohammed Shafi’s health deteriorated, and his last years were very difficult. He suffered a stroke, which resulted in partial amnesia. It is said that he did not receive any help or friendly hand, from the industry, except from Rafi Sb who would visit him occasionally and quietly leave money under his pillow without telling him.

He passed away after long years of illness on 30th April, 1980.

‘Zindagi’ (1956) is produced under the banner of Kesar Films, Bombay and is directed by CL Dheer. The star cast is listed as Geeta Bali, Vijaylakshmi, Jaswant, Baby Naaz, Gulab, Rasheed, Sudarshan, Krishnakant, Tuntun, and Jagdish Sethi.

There are 8 songs listed for this film. Seven songs are written by Kaifi Azmi, and one song is by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Today’s song is that solitary song from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan.

The singing voices are of Sudha Malhotra, S Balbir and Jagmohan Bakshi. The song is beautifully structured around a very clever use of chorus lines, with clear demarcation of male and female chorus lines. The pace and the rhythm of the song is quite energetic. It seems to be a picnic song, from the manner of singing and the words being said. I request other knowledgeable readers to please add information about this song and the film.

Listen and enjoy.

[Editor’s Note – This song is the 300th song of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan in the blog as a lyricist.]

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 25
—————————————————————————

Today is 1 may 2020, viz the first day of the fifth month of the year 2020.

When I look back on this day ten years ago, I find that three songs were covered that day (1 may 2010). These songs were :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Uff ye Jawaani ye adaa Mehmaan-1974 03 of 06 songs posted
Tumhaari mast nazar gar idhar nahin hoti Dil Hi To Hai-1963 All songs covered
Pyaar to ik din honaa thaa Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati-1969 05 songs posted

So it means that two movies are eligible for “Blog Ten year challenge” today.

One of these two movies is “Mehmaan”(1974).

This movie had six songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the blog. The movie made its debut ibn the blog this day ten years ago !

Here are the three songs of “Mehmaan”(1974) that have been covered so far:-

Song Posted On
Uff ye Jawaani ye adaa 01.05.2010
Meri chaahat rahegi hameshaa jawaan 26.04.2012
Ram Raheem Krishn Kareem … 25.10.2017

I may have discussed three songs from the movie, but these songs were spaced several years apart. Second song from the movie was discussed in 2012 and the third in 2017.

So, despite covering three songs from the movie, I do not remember anything about this movie. So when I watched the song under discussion today, I had some great and inadvertent fun watching the picturisation. I could see a very young Rekha lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice, but who was the gentleman, jumping up and down. He appeared somewhat familiar ! And then it hit me, Arrey, it was Vishwajeet ! He was well past his prime by 1974, but he was still trying to turn the clock back rather valiantly. 🙂

The song starts as a motor boat song. Then the duo shift to a park, where the song becomes a classic running around the trees song- as I S Johar would have described it. 🙂

Then the duo jump over on a jeep. End of the song finds Rekha alighting from the jeep and walking off in a huff, determined not to go back to the jeep. But she quickly has a change of heart when she finds monkeys ahead. 🙂

Lyrics are by Sahir Ludhianvi. Normally known for penning songs espousing the caause of social justice, communal harmony, women emancipation and other such noble causes, Here he is called upon to pen a rather more mundane kind of a song- viz a romantic song. And the lyrics are quite cute. “Chhoona mat mujhe”- is the warning issued by the lady. “royegi jo chhoone waala koi na mila”- is the response. Then she relents and sets the terms that she is agreeable to this “chhoona” business provided it is carried out gently. 🙂

Quite an interesting and fun song, even if much of the fun is inadvertent. This is a song from nearly five decades ago. I have been watching this song and listening to it for the first time in true tubelight fashion. I got to watch this song only because the lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day : 4220 Post No. : 15422

Today 6th Feb 2020 is one hundred and fifth birth anniversary of Ramchandra Narayan Dwivedi (06.02.1915-11.12.1998), popularly known to all of as ‘Kavi Pradeep’.

Kavi Pradeep was a great poet and lyricist admired by the whole film industry in India. And as a singer too. Though he has sung very few songs, he has left an indelible mark in the history of Indian movies.

He has penned over five hundred songs as a lyricist and as per statistics on the blog so far 181 out of 531 of his lyrics have been posted on the blog. So, one can understand we still have a long way to go to bring all his lyrics here on the blog. (I think finding all the songs (audio/video) may be difficult now).

As a tribute to him today we have a song penned by him for the 1952 movie ‘Kaafilaa’.

This movie had two songs written by Kavi Pradeep and the today’s song in fact was noted five years back but it was lying pending. (The audio links that were available then have also become obsolete now. However, luckily, I was able to find other links to this song).

‘Kaafila-1952’ was directed by Arvind Sen for Munshi Productions, Bombay. It was produced by S.H. Munshi.

It had Ashok Kumar, Nalini Jaywant, Motilal, Ranjan, Sunalini Devi, Nazeer Hussain, Amita, Bhagwan Ji, Mona, Krishnakant, Shakti, Mumtaz, D.S. Panchotiya, Samar Chatterjee, Parvatibai, Sachin Ghosh, A. Sharma, Munshi Khanzar, Anand Prabhu and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.05.1952.

This movie had total eight songs written by Vrajendra Gaur (five songs), Kavi Pradeep (two songs) and Moti. B.A. (one song).
Music for this film was composed by two music directors viz. Husnlal-Bhagatram (six songs) and Bhola Shreshtha (two songs, (both songs penned by Kavi Pradeep).

The voices of Geeta Dutt, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum, Talat Mahmood and Zohrabai Ambalewali were used in the songs of this movie.

So far five songs from this movie have been posted on the blog as per following;

SNo Song Title Posted on
01 Chori chori dil mein samaya… 14.11.2010
02 Lehron se poochh lo 19.06.2011
03 Wo meri taraf yoon chale aa rahe hain 13.10.2011
04 Aansoo ab tum kabhi na behna 12.12.2013
05 Khushiyon ki bahaaren laut gayin … 02.05.2018

Today’s song is the sixth song from this movie to be posted on the blog. And the first song of Kavi Pradeep for this movie.
This song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Shamshad Begum and this is the only song sung by them in this movie.

As mentioned above the song is written by Kavi Pradeep and music is composed by Bhola Shreshtha.

Let us now enjoy this ‘nok-jhonk’ song where the ‘nar’ and the ‘naari’ are fighting for ‘kiska paldaa bhaari’ …

Blog Day : 4183 Post No. : 15362

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Round up of 2019

An eventful year comes to a close. I have had great experiences that will bring a smile on my face when I think of them or look at the related pictures.

First- my daughter gave me a promotion and I enjoyed every minute of the event. Only feeling at the end of it was— having waited for it from last July, when she announced her intention, I felt January came too soon and the week, with happenings related to the event, was over with the blessings of the elders of the family and good wishes of friends and relatives. And I must thank the Atulites too who came for it.

The next two months of the year were rather quiet. The major point of March being the R.M.I.M meet. I was lucky to have been able to attend the R.M.I.M in Bangalore this year -30th &31st March to be precise. And am I glad I attended it on both dates, unlike the last time when I went for one day and left almost immediately after lunch.

This time R.M.I.M was celebrating two birth centenaries – that of Chitragupta and Shamshad Begum. There was also a mention about the fact that Manna Dey would also have been 100 this year. Plus, there was a mention that many music luminaries of the past, who would have been 100 this year, need to be remembered.

On the occasion our Gajendraji reminisced about his encounter or meeting with the Shamshad Begum in 2012, when she was 92. He spoke about how sharp her memory was and about her sense of humour. He mentioned that when he asked her about her feelings towards her songs being remixed by the current generation her reply surprised him. She is said to have told him that by remixing, the songs were kept alive and more people were able to relish them.

Later during the post lunch session there was a debate or discussion on how social media impacted music and films. The discussion also touched whether it was right to colourise old black & white classics, remix or morph old videos etc. This was followed by Kushal Gopalka’s session where he spoke about his association with Shamshad Begumji. He mentioned another incident that showed Shamshad Begum’s view about life. He talked of an event for which he had escorted Shamshad Begumji; where the master of ceremonies asked her about her colleagues who were no more and had died rather young; for this -he says- her reply was “humari umr par nazar mat daaliye.”
My personal take-home from this was I got to meet the gracious, simple and humble Sudha Malhotra. She sounds very melodious in person even when she speaks.

For more on the meet I suggest visiting here.

April end saw me in Mumbai for a few days on some personal agenda. Which I clubbed with a met-up of friends from ASAD. That was a good gangout with guruji also landing back in Mumbai that morning and meeting Bakshishji and Nitinji for the first time (didn’t feel it was the first time though) and of course Sudhirji was also there. So, in all a good gangout even if I was present only for a short time I enjoyed.

June end was a trip to Bhopal to meet my gang of girls from college and chilling out in the heat of Madhya Bharat. But that was also fun, we parted with a promise of making it an annual affair.

July saw me in Kerala, the island resort of Ashtamudi, with newly acquired relatives and getting to know them. September end was Navaratri which saw me in my ‘sasural ka village’ as well as in Kolkata for Durga Pooja. A long-cherished dream of visiting the pooja pandals was fulfilled by my personal Santa.

Actually, for all of the above, I must thank my personal Santa as he never questions me or my intentions. He also turned a year older, an age when people normally hang-up their boots and think of taking life easy having worked for 40 years now. But my Santa has not yet thought about his boots or rest. He has a lot of enthusiasm for outings and excursions and is already planning his next joyful weekend. These breaks are what keep him going in stressful work conditions I suppose. God bless him forever.

I must thank our Sadanandji and Sudhirji for the song with this post. I am thanking Sudhirji as he suggested the song, since I have little knowledge of any song featuring the Shamshad Begum – Chitragupta combination. On a busy Saturday morning I pestered Sudhirji to find out if any Shamshad Begum song in Chitragupta’s music direction was left to be posted and he gave me this song before the day was out. Sadanandji has to be thanked as he is the one who has uploaded the song to YouTube. The movie is the 1953 release “Manchala” which had music by Chitragupta, the additional reason for my choosing this is, it is a duet by Shamshad Begum and Chitragupta.

Raja Mehdi Ali Khan was the lyricist for a movie which was produced and directed by Jayant Desai and had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Agha Jeevan etc in the cast. Going by the lyrics and the sound of the song the male in the song could have been Agha.
Happy Partying & tik tok tik tok to 2020.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a walk down memory lane for me. I had seen this movie with my dad in the movie hall and subsequently he had purchased the cassette of its songs too. The songs from this album along with those of “Yaraana”, “Qurbaani” and “Sholay” used to be played constantly on holidays and I had learnt all the songs from these ‘by heart’ prompting the elders in the family to comment that if I had shown similar passion in studies I would have been a topper, not that I was a bad student but I used to top only in mathematics and was reasonably good at all other extra or co-curricular activities.

But that is not the subject of this post.

The subject of this post is Zeenat Aman. It is her birthday today and I would like to present this song to emphasise on how stylish she was.
The song is from the 1978 release “Heeralal Pannalal” about which Atulji has written a very interesting post with this song .

“Heeralal Pannalal” made its debut on the blog with the Pancham- Asha Bhonsle duet on the occasion of Amjad Khans’ birthday. The next song posted for Premnath’s birthday was the second version of the first song posted. It was treated as two posts as the lyrics were different and RD had given entirely different look to them. The movie has six songs and the fourth came on the blog for Shashi Kapoor’s birthday and the fifth one is here for Zeenat’s birthday. I think we should rename this movie as Birthday Special. Whatsay?

The songs were the handiwork of Majrooh and R D Burman. Today’s song is a stage song. The song happens as the two innocent and kind hearted heroes are trying to run away from some goons and land up (drop on would be more correct) on the stage as the heroines are awaiting the arrival of two professional dancers to help them in some inter college competition. The professionals walk-in just as song is coming to a close. This is the first time that the couples meet.

Let us pray for the speedy recovery of Lata Mangeshkar who sings today’s song with Asha, Bupinder and Kishore Kumar.
Happy Birthday to you Zeenie a.k.a Zeenat Aman.

hullo Atuldom

B. R. Chopra’s romantic comedy “Pati Patni Aur Woh”, based on the “seven-year itch” of Hollywood starring Marilyn Monroe made its blog debut on 25th February 2009 with the most famous song of the movie thhande thhande paani se nahaana chaahiye. After three years na aaj thha na kal thha was posted on the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s Birthdate. After almost a full year Sudhirji gave us this article on a song which can be called as a “movie inside a movie” song.

All the posts with these songs give us a fair idea of what a fun movie “Pati, Patni Aur Woh” was. Hence, I am not writing any gist of the movie. The idea to revisit this movie came as there are promos of a modern version of this movie being shown on Television these days. I found that there are five songs in the movie and three have been posted on the blog. On going through YouTube, I could find only four songs from the movie. (resolution: shall sit through the movie one of these days to see if it has the missing song). I remember that “o duniya ke rakhwale” was used in the movie, actually only one line of the mukhda, when Sanjeev Kumar wants to reset his alarm clock. That was in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor.

I am trying desperately to refrain from writing what a fine actor Harihar Jethalal Jariwala -popular as Sanjeev Kumar- was, or about his comic timing or about his smart looks and smile. I am also not going to list out the wonderful movies that he has acted in or how much I love seeing him in emotional scenes. We have a brilliant post by Sudhirji mujhko to qaatil ki itni pehchaan hai which will give us a picture of the kind of actor Haribhai (as his friends in the industry addressed him).

Today on the occasion of the 34th remembrance day of Haribhai we can have the last available song from “Pati Patni Aur Woh”. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor, written by Anand Bakshi and Ravindra Jain was the composer. This lively song is at the wedding of friends of the lead couple, who later go ahead and get married (in the movie 🙂 ). The song kind of follows the qawwali format. This was one of the movies where Sanjeev Kumar acted his age and was not an aged person meaning senior citizen.


Song-Ladki cycle waali (Pati Patni Aur Woh)(1978) Singers-Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

Blog Day :

4094 Post No. : 15238

Today’s song is from a film Rakhi-1949. This social film was made by Prakash Pictures,Bombay. It was directed by Dr. Shanti kumar ( he is different than the composer Shanti Kumar Desai). The 10 melodious songs were composed by the Melody-Magicians Husnlal-Bhagatram.

Most of us know that Husnlal and Bhagatram were the brothers of Pt. Amarnath- the eldest brother, who too was a well known, pre Independence music director. However, How many of us know that out of this pair, Bhagatram was the elder brother ? Have you anytime wondered why the younger brother’s name comes first in this pair ?

Normally, when a pair of brothers is referred, it is the elder brother’s name that comes first. For example, Ram-Laxman or Balram – Srikrishna or even Kalyanji – Anand ji, Jatin-Lalit or Anand-Milind. For many years, this matter was bothering me, but I could not find any justification for this unusual way of pairing. I was sure that there must be some story behind this.

Two years ago, the Blog “Songs of yore” published the second part of Husnlal-Bhagatram post on 11-8-2017, based on the interview of Dinesh Prabhakar, son of Husnlal and Ms. Nirmala Devi, wife of Husnlal. During her talk, Nirmala Devi explained the reasons for calling the pair as Husnlal-Bhagatram, inspite of Bhagatram being the elder one and more experienced of the two. Bhagatram had already given music, individually to 9 films, in the late 30s and early 40s, before the pair was formed. Her statement answered my long awaited query about the unusual name of the pair. Here is the related portion of her interview….

” The 90-year old Shrimati Nirmala Devi is an amazing lady. She still has a razor-sharp memory and superb knowledge of music and music personalities of that era. She gave me a lot of interesting information, not available elsewhere – for example, the reason why the younger brother Husnlal’s name comes first in the duo’s name. Her talk also revealed that other family commitments, too, in Delhi were contributory factors for their decline in the film music.

Shrimati Nirmala Devi speaks about her husband (late) Pt Husnlal

DD Kashyap, who was directing Chaand (1944) for Prabhat Films, wanted to engage Pt Amarnath based in Lahore, who was a towering figure in music. As he was heavily preoccupied, he strongly recommended his younger brother Pt Husnlal who was staying with him and assisting him in Lahore-based films of Pancholi and others, assuring Kashyap that Pt Husnlal was no less talented than him. Pt Amarnath was like a father-figure to his younger brothers, especially to Pt Husnlal. A music session was organized to demonstrate Pt Husnlal’s talent. Kashyap was highly impressed. When it was time for Pt Husnlal to proceed for Poona/Bombay, Pt Amarnath, out of concern for his kid-brother, suggested to Kashyap to also engage Pt Bhagatram with him. Kashyap expressed difficulty in arranging the payment for two as the contract was already made out. Pt Amarnath assured him that he should not bother about increasing the fee, but the two brothers must work together. (Thus it was that Bhagatram got appended to Husnlal, forming the duo HB. Another reason why the younger brother’s name preceded the elder brother was simply the aesthetics – Husnlal-Bhagatram sounding better than the other way around.) ”

Dr. Shantikumar directed the film Rakhi-49. No information is available about him anywhere. We only know that he directed 18 films. Starting with film Police-44, he ended his career with film Mahasati Behula-64.

The cast of the film was Kamini Kaushal (real name Uma Kashyap), Karan Dewan, Gope, Yashodhara Katju, Pran, Kuldip, Raj Adeeb (younger brother of Prem Adeeb), Ulhas etc. As time flows, Heroes become character artistes and then they fade out. There are hundreds of old time actors about whom absolutely no information is available. Intense search sometimes yields some results and one feels at peace with whatever is available. One such actor is Ulhas. For many years nothing was known about him except names of his films from HFGK. Over a period a little more about him came to light. Now we know that his real name was M.N.Kaul and that he was a Kashmiri Pandit. He worked in 155 films. Recently I found the following note on Ulhas in ‘ Chinar Shade’ Blog..

He was known as ULHAAS and his real name was M N Kaul. He belonged to a Kashmiri Pandit family from Ajmer. As a young boy, he moved to Poona in 1937 and joined Prabhat Pictures as an actor. His first movie as an actor was ” Wahan “. He worked with stalwarts like A R Kardar and Sohrab Modi.

Chandr Mohan Wattal , another Kashmiri actor of 1930s and 1940s helped him a lot to settle in films .In fact he intervened and requested V Shantaram for his role in “Wahan”. Ulhaas remained loyal to Chandr Mohan wattal for this favour till latter’s death in 1949.

When Bombay Talkies decided to start their New film BASANT, Ulhaas and Mumtaz Shanti were signed as lead pair. Again in the movie PARBAT PE APNAA DERA , he was signed as hero.

Thereafter , he started doing character roles. He played memorable character roles in Guide , Amar, Aadmi, ,Shama Parwana, Sehra, Ziddi, Goonj Uthhi Shehnaayi, Rani Roopmati, Dhaka Ki Malmal, Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan, Kundan, Heer, Mirza Ghalib ,Jhansi Ki Raani , Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal, Sangharsh , Prem Pujaari, Badi Didi, Do Aaankhen Baarah Haath, Johar Mehmood in Goa.

In his 38 years of career, he acted in many hit movies. His last movie was Sawaal (1982).

We all know about Pran very well, so there is no point in giving his Bio-data here. Few days back I found an article on Pran on http://www.rediffmail.com. This article gave interesting points about Pran’s life, which normally are not known to most people. Here is an excerpt from this article, duly edited by me.
Pran’s full name is Pran Krishan Sikand. Pran wanted to be a photographer and even took up a job as an apprentice in A Das & Co, Delhi.

Pran’s first ever acting role was Sita to Madan Puri’s Ram in Shimla, at a local Ramlila.

Since Pran’s father was a civil contractor with the government, Pran studied at various schools in Kapurthala (Punjab), Unnao, Meerat and Rampur (Uttar Pradesh) and Dehradun (Uttarakhand).

Pran’s first film was in Punjabi called Yamla Jat (1940), where he played a villain. It was a huge hit.

Pran did not tell his father that he was shooting for a movie, as he thought his father would not permit him to have an acting career. When his first interview appeared in a newspaper, Pran asked his sisters to hide the papers. When his father finally learnt of his career, he was not upset as Pran had expected.

In one of his early films, Pran played hero to Noor Jehan in Khandaan (1942).

Pran came to Mumbai from Lahore on August 14, 1947, just a day before India’s Independence, with his wife and one-year-old son Arvind.

According to Pran, one of the most precious things he lost in the Partition was his dog. When Pran became popular, he would name his dogs Bullet, Whisky and Soda.

Before Pran came to Mumbai, he had already acted in 22 films as a villain. Due to the Partition, his career had a brief pause.

When Pran came to Mumbai, he stayed at the Taj Mahal hotel. As he had no work, money started running out, and the family had to shift to smaller and smaller hotels. Finally, they had to stay in a guest house.

After eight months of arriving in Mumbai, Pran — with the help of writer Saadat Hasan Manto and actor Shyam — got a role in Shaheed Latif’s Ziddi (1948), starring Dev Anand and Kamini Kaushal.

Ziddi was a hit. Within a week of its release, Pran signed three more films: S M Yusuf’s Grihasti, Prabhat Films’s Apradhi and Wali Mohammad Wali’s Putli.

BR Chopra’s Afsana (1951) was Pran’s first biggest hit after he shifted to Mumbai.

Pran had three children — Arvind, Sunil and Pinky — and five grandchildren.

Ashok Kumar and Pran were the best of friends and have acted in more than 25 films together, including Afsana, Victoria No 203, Chori Mera Kaam, Chor Ke Ghar Chor, Apna Khoon, Aap Ke Deewane, Raja Aur Rana, Inspector, Lakeeren, Mr X, Pooja Ke Phool, Purab Aur Pachhim, Adhikar, Naya Zamana and Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool.

Pran even played Valmiki in a mythological film called Luv-Kush.

When Pran was signed up for Halaku, Meena Kumari was quite upset but when she saw him in costume, and a few rushes from the film, she was very happy.

Pran would work on his make-up well. He would have an artist at home, who would sketch the kind of look he wanted. Then, his make-up man and wig-maker would work on it.

Pran acted in several Bengali films as well, including Joy Mukherjee’s Sonai Dighe, directed by Ashim Banerjee.

It was Pran who recommended Amitabh Bachchan to Prakash Mehra for Zanjeer, which had been offered to Dev Anand, Raaj Kumar and Dharmendra earlier.

Pran acted with Amitabh in 15 films like Zanjeer, Kasauti, Don, Amar Akbar Anthony, Majboor, Dostana, Naseeb, Kaalia and Sharaabi.

Not many know that Pran was paid more than Amitabh Bachchan. In the 1970s, only Rajesh Khannna was paid more than Pran. In the 1950s and 1960s, only Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor and Rajendra Kumar were paid more than Pran.

Pran started rejecting film offers in the 1990s citing age-related problems. But when Amitabh was going through a rough patch in his career, he requested Pran to act in his film Mrityudaata and Tere Mere Sapne. Pran readily agreed.

During the filming of both Mrituyudata and Tere Mere Sapne, Pran’s legs used to tremble. So he shot most of the scenes in a seated position. After 2000, he made very few guest appearances in films.

Pran is a member of various social organisations, and even had his own football team called the Bombay Dynamos Football Club.
Pran’s favourite word ‘Barkhurdaar’ became immensely popular over the years.

In 2001, Pran got a Padma Bhushan, India’s third highest civilian award from the government of India.

Pran’s biography is titled …And Pran because in most of his movies, his name in the credits would appear last and read as …and Pran. Sometimes, it would be …above all Pran.

Film Rakhi was a typical ” Tear Jerker ” story of a spoiled brother and his sympathetic, protective sister. Shanti kumar was the most suitable director for such stories, as he handled emotional scenes perfectly, in his direction. The story of the film was…..

Shankar(Pran) is the brother of Kamini and is a vagabond.Because of him ,the sister suffers quite a lot, but ties a Rakhi always. Shankar is arrested for fraud and is in Police custody,when Karan Diwan -his sister’s husband is accused of Murder,which he has not done.Knowing this,Shankar runs away from lock up to get the real culprit and when he does,he is shot and dies in the arms of sister Kamini-who ties a Rakhi on his wrist as it is the Rakhi Poonam that day.Highly melodramatic indeed !

Today’s duet is the 4th song to be discussed here. It is sung by Shamshad Begum and Ram Kamlani . Ram Kamlani was Gope’s youngest brother. They were 9 siblings and Ram kamlani was the last one. He was born on 20-10-1919. Though Gope started his career in acting in 1933 and concentrated only on acting, Ram Kamlani dabbled in Acting, Direction, Production and Playback singing too. He entered the film line in late 40s.

As an actor he acted in 9 films like Ajeet, Inaam, Kaajal, Do Raaha, Joi Bangla Desh etc. As a Singer he sang 22 songs in 15 films. Starting with Doosri Shaadi-47, he sang in Ghar ki Izzat, Rangeen Zamaana, Kaajal, Refugee, Pyar ki jeet, Maa ka pyar, Naao, Raakhi, Bahurani, Khamosh Sipahi, Meena Bazar, Malkin, Chaalbaaz, Laal Dupatta etc.

Mostly, he sang for his brother Gope. His songs were generally duets. These were mainly comedy songs,very few were serious ones. His rare solos like,” Bane hai hum to Ghar Jamai'(Ghar ki izzat) and ” Koi samze isse muhabbat”(Meena Bazaar) became popular.

When Gope established Gope Productions, he produced some films and directed some of them,like, Muskurahat, Biradari, Bezuban, Khamosh Sipahi, Hangama etc.

Ram Kamlani died in 1983 in Bombay.

The song is very good to listen to. After all, it was composed by the Melody Magicians !
