chaman mein sab ne hi gaaya
tarana zindagani ka
magar sab se alag tha rang
meri hi kahani ka

zamanaa sun raha hai jis ko
wo meri kahani hai

 

The voice of Mukesh continues to enthral the world of music. Today (22 July) is his birth anniversary and I present here a short song from the film ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960). This film has already been Yippeee’d on the blog, but this particular rendition can as well be taken as an additional separate song.

Remembering Geeta Dutt.

She passed away 45 years ago on 20th July in 1972, brining to close a tumultuous and tragic life, all of 41 years. A voice that held so much promise, and yes, she gave too, so many wonderful gems to remember her by. Just going by the numbers – the decade of 1950s carries close to 850 songs sung by her. And then, in the 1960s, she has recorded less than hundred. And the majority of them belonging to the first half of the decade.

Missing Films of 1960s – 33

Unbelievable – that this song is still waiting to be posted.

This gem of a song, a forgotten favorite from the radio listening days. Such a lovely and soulful song, a wondrous melody that enhances the poignancy of the emotions contained within the words. And the words – what an ocean of feelings has been captured and bundled, just within the three phrases of the first line itself,

dil liya. . .     gham diya. . .     kya kiya. . .

Before the partition in 1947, two of the well-known and successful Lahore-based producers-directors were Dalsukh M Pancholi of Pancholi Art Pictures and Roop K Shorey of Shorey Pictures. After the partition, both of them had to shift to Bombay (Mumbai), having lost their assets including the studios which were burnt down during the communal riots. It took some time for both of them to re-organise their film production companies in Bombay. Roop K Shorey released his first post-partition film, ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949) under a new banner, Shorey Films. Dalsukh M Pancholi took one more year to release his first post-partition film ‘Meena Baazar’ (1950) under a new banner, Pancholi Productions.

5th June is celebrated as ‘World Environment Day’ all over the world every year. The theme for this year is “Connecting People to Nature“.

I am approaching today’s post in a different manner. Instead of going into the details of the environmental agencies, their history and purpose, the significant environmental issues being faced by humanity on this planet, etc. I am thinking of our Hindi films and their music. The nature is so intimately connected herein. We cannot imagine our Hindi Film Music without ‘connecting with nature’.

The first time I saw this film, it was on Doordarshan, and the only song that I could appreciate (given my age) was “Bibi Mendaki Ri Tu To Paani Mein Ki Raani”. Rest of the film, its emotional and familial nuances were all lost on me. Those were the days, when watching television was a privilege bestowed upon oneself by a friendly neighbor. One would go to watch television at a neighbor’s home, or hang on to the windows, if entry was not permitted. And so, the opportunity that one gets to watch a movie was in itself a treat, and an accomplishment. And one always wanted to make the most of such opportunities. Getting bored was not only not an option, but it was a thought furthest from the mind. I have this placement in front of a TV screen, and I will watch it for as long as I am allowed, whatever may be the content. The serious stuff was mostly OHT (Overhead Transmission), and the mind would remember and register the fun parts like Balraj Sahni having poori and lassi at a halwai shop in the morning before reaching his office, or singing this above mentioned song with his children on the Sunday when he is at home. But as far as watching time is concerned, it was to be religiously spent, to watch the entire film, whether I could make out more of it or not.
