Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 36
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 24 march 2012) saw five songs from five different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5686 Beena madhur madhur kachhu bol Ram Rajya(1943) 5 songs covered so far out of 12
5687 Chhota sa fasaana hai tere mere pyaar ka Birha Ki Raat(1950) Movie YIPPEED by now

5690 Chal diye banda nawaaz Mr and Mrs 55(1955) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see from the table that three of the movies whose songs were covered on 24 march 2012 have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with two movies that are still unYIPPEED and therefore eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today on 24 March 2022.

“Ram Rajya”(1943) is one such movie.

“Ram Rajya”(1943) was produced and directed by Vijay Shankar Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Prem Adib, Shobhana Samarth, Umakant Desai, Chandrakant, Badri Prasad, Yeshawant Nikam, Pandit, Ranjana, Amirbai Karnataki, Shanta Kumari, Athawaale, Madhusudan Jani, Pande etc in it.

This movie had 12 songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the sixth song from “Ram Rajya”(1943) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by a male singer that is not identified in HFGK. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Rao Vyas.

The song is picturised as a song being sung on the occasion of the coronation of Lord Ram (played by Prem Adib.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the singer. From the voice, it appears that the singer was a classiclly trained singer.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’.

I had never read or heard about this movie earlier till I become aware of this in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). It seems to be an obscure movie and very less information about it is available so far. Luckily though few of its songs have been uploaded by music lovers and I sincerely express my gratitude towards them.

‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’ was directed by Prabhat Mukherji. It seems that Prabhat Mukherji was also the producer of this movie, as HFGK mentions the production company as Prabhat Mukherji (Producer, Calcutta).

The star cast of the movie is listed as Balraj Sahni, Ajay Sahni (Parikshit Sahni), Miss Kaul, Kalpana Sahni, Pran Kishore Kaul, Badgami, Raja Hamid, Kishori Kaul, Rajani Gupta, Gitanjali Desai, Shazda Zameer Ahmed, Ghulam Muhammad Pandit, Ghulam Muhammad Sufi, Krishna Pandit, Zehar Rai, and others. It was passed by Censor Board on 24.08.1972.

Here is brief about this movie which is mentioned on its song-link on YouTube by the uploader of the today’s song.

Mahjoor (Peerzada Ghulam Ahmad) was a poetic legend in the valley of Kashmir, known for his revolutionary poetry of 20th Century, Unfortunately, not much documented and heard beyond the valley. Balraj Sahni was amazed with the popularity of the poet in the region and decided to document the poet’s life on celluloid in mid 60s. He opted his son Parikshit to play the role of the poet in biopic, while he himself played father of Mahjoor. The music was given by Prem Dhawan with songs penned by Kaifi Azmi & Prem Dhawan (a few translations of Mahjoor’s works). The bilingual film directed by Prabhat Mukherjee got delayed in making and release and could only be released in 1972. The song gives some insight, how Mahjoor was the poet & the VOICE of the folk, the common people of the valley with his images, and characters from common walks of life.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie had ten songs written by two songwriters – six songs by Prem Dhawan and three songs by Kaifi Azmi. One song is a traditional and famous ghazal penned by Mirza Ghalib. Though HFGK mentions Prem Dhawan’s name for six songs it does not mention Kaifi Azmi’s name for the remaining four songs. However, for lyricists of the movie the credit is given to both.

The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No.  Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Phir Mujhe Deed-Ay-Tar Mahendra Kapoor Ghalib
02 Aaja Aaja O Mere Dilbar Usha Mangeshkar, chorus
03 Chaman Waale Mahendra Kapoor, chorus
04 Aazaadi Hamaare Ghar Aayi Mahendra Kapoor, chorus
05 Subah Ki Hansmukh Dulhan Manna Dey, chorus Prem Dhawan
06 O Kheton Ki Shahazaadi Talat Mehmood Prem Dhawan
07 Maine Naye-Naye Phool Choone Usha Mangeshkar Prem Dhawan
08 Ruk Jaa Aaj Ki Raat Krishna Kalle, chorus Prem Dhawan
09 Tamanna Kab Se Hai Dilbar Suman Kalyanpur Prem Dhawan
10 Jaane Kab Aaoge O Dilbar Manna Dey, chorus Prem Dhawan

Today’s song is sung by Talat Mehmood. I had not listened to this song earlier and when I discovered the link for this song, I got a pleasant surprise. Besides being a song sung by Talat Mehmood it was also not posted on the blog and I got this opportunity to present it on the blog.

With the today’s song ‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’makes its debut on the blog.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Is Duniya Mein Rehnewaale Sab Hon Ek Samaan” from the movie ‘Samaanta’ to today’s movie song-post.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Phir Milenge-1942.

The film was made by Minerva Movietone. In 1942, WWII was on its peak. Till that time, the Germans were on the attack, but from 1942 onwards, their decline had started and by 1945 end, both Japan and Germany had lost the war and surrendered to the Allies. However, the damage caused by the war situation continued for a few more years and like all other industries the film industry too took time to normalise its set up.

The war affected the film industry mainly in 3 ways. Firstly, the essential commodities like Petrol, Sugar etc went into shortage and the Government put several items under ” Rationing”. The list also included a shortage of Raw Film, the main requirement for making movies. Many restrictions like the length of the film etc were implemented. To rationalise and to take advantage of the powerful media like films, the Government gave additional raw film to producers on ‘ controlled rates ‘, provided they made a film with a story of helping the government war efforts. It was called a “propaganda” film.

Major film producers make a film or two such films to take advantage of the concession and allotment. During this period many such ‘ War effort’ films were made. Some examples are, Master Vinayak made ” Badi Maa”-1945 with Nurjahan and others ( including Lata and Asha). Acharya Atre’s Navyug films made the film ” Panna”-1944 with Jairaj and Geeta Nizami and film ” Phir Milenge”-1942 was made by Minerva Movietone.

The second impact of War, on the Indian Film Industry was that considerable clandestine Black Money entered the film making and many new, so called ‘Producers’, with bags of money were seen making films. Although more money became available to make more films, the directors had to entertain the whims of the producers about selection of actors or changes in the story. Many such producers started to ‘Direct’ the films. This lowered the quality of films, but brought in many new artistes and provided work to more people.

The third effect of the War was the most damaging. Since the new producers and directors did not have their own studios, they started alluring the studio employed artistes by giving more money per film. They hired studios for shooting films. This devastated the ” Studio Culture”, because artistes started “Freelancing”, without getting attached to a studio. This crumbled the studios on one hand and on the other hand the cost of engaging artistes escalated many folds. Before the war, films could be made in 75000 to 1 lakh rupees, now films needed 1 to 2 lakhs to make one film. It went on increasing and today, making a film in the 2020’s decade one needs atleast 40 to 50 crores per film.

Film Phir Milenge-42 had Sardar Akhtar, Sadiq Ali (later on called The Prince of Minerva), Meena, K N Singh, Menaka and a host of others. The film was directed by Sohrab Modi.

Sohrab Modi’s rise from a Stage Actor to a very popular and successful studio owner, actor-famous for his Dialogue Delivery of very long sentences, producer and director is very interesting. With small successes and big failures, he learned the art of giving what the audience liked in those days. However, one drawback of such people is that they can not and do not change as per the need of the times and become obsolete, ending their careers pathetically.

Famous for making large scale films, powerful dialogues and films with a lot of dramatics, Modi could not cope up with the changing tastes of the audience from the 30’s to the 60’s. The audience changed with 2 generations, but Sohrab Modi’s Minerva Movietone could not change their success formula which was not working now unlike earlier times ! May be he never wanted to change-due to self admiration or king size Ego !!

Minerva was the last big studio and film maker in the list of eminent studios established in the 30’s. When Minerva Movietone was established in 1936, there were already studios like Madon Theatres (est.1919), Imperial (1926), Ranjit Studio (1929), Prabhat (1929), Sagar Movietone (1929), New Theatres (1931), Wadia movietone (1931) and Bombay Talkies(1933). Therefore Minerva was the youngest studio. It is to its credit that it survived with dignity for a longer time-and actively too- than its predecessors and competitors, who perished, some tragically, from 1938 (Madon) to Ranjit (1963).

Sohrab Modi was a colossal personality. leela Chitnis,actress who had the experience in working for films made in different centers like Bombay, Poona, Kolhapur, madras, Calcutta,and Lahore writes in her Marathi autobiography ” चंदेरी दुनियेत “, about all major studios. About Minerva, she writes -“The atmosphere in Minerva was very playful, but once Sohrab Modi entered the premises, everyone used to be quiet and only did his work. He was a taskmaster and a great disciplinarian. he did not like people laughing or whiling their work time. it felt like a Jailor taking rounds in the jail. The atmosphere became suffocating sometimes. ”

I liked him and his films. However I always felt that Sohrab Modi was a polished, educated and a white collared version of Dara Singh. I liked his dialogue delivery style. Later I shifted my liking to Raajkumar ‘Jaani’.

In the cast we see a new name Eruch Tarapore. I was keen to know about this actor because of his strange name. It was a typical Parsee name. I searched quite a lot. Ultimately one day I accidentally came across a site about Parsee artistes. I forgot to note down the name and URL address of that site and till today I did not find it ever again. Anyway I found this information about Eruch Tarapore on this site.

Eruch Tarapore was a distant relative of Sohrab Modi and he worked only in Modi’s films. He worked in 16 films, right from Modi’s first film Hamlet-35 up to 1948. Eruch sang one song each in 3 films, Meetha zehar-38, Jailor-38 and Phir milenge-43. He died in 1948.

Today’s song is sung by Sardar Akhtar and chorus. The song was written by Pt. Sudarshan.

This article is the 16800th post in the blog.

Blog Day :

4942 Post No. : 16800

Centuries – pivotal events. And always welcome. Give us a quantized measure of manageable progress.  Like one part of a lo..ong project accomplished. Or like completing one cycle of an endless process. Would we like to compare with the earth going around the sun? Maybe not a good idea. A century taking 365 days to complete. Or maybe compare to Victor Trumper and Don Bradman and Majid Khan – getting a century in the very first session of a test match. Ah but that maybe going too fast for this crowded bandwagon of Atulites.

Well then maybe the Phileas Fogg of the Victorian Britain, who put the girdle around the world in eighty days. Hmm. . . that could be a close measure. Although I assure you that this bandwagon is trotting along somewhat faster than him, and his trusted valet – Passepartout. Now this name always intrigued me till the time I discovered that this faithful valet was a Frenchman. And that explained a lot that happened in the saga of the precise Mr. Fogg.

So let’s see. We are now at the 168th century mark on this trip into the dreamland of music. If he did a Fogg-Song-A-Day on his trip, one girdle of the earth would account for 80 songs. And if he did this 168 times, he would have enjoyed the flavor of 13,440 editions of Hindi film music. So yes, we are doing better than him on that count.

[Ah yes, you may catch the misdirection in my drift, but then this is just a tongue in cheek opening of the one hundred and sixty eighth hundred milestone post of remarkable blog.]

Remarkable is just one word, and it is incapable of spanning the entire gamut of emotions that arise when I begin to describe this blog. And its accomplishments. And yes, we have a gargantuan accomplishment, as recent as three days ago, that we must also talk about. And we will.

So yes, remarkable is an inadequate qualifier. Into the fourteenth year now, and few months away from completing it. And no bureaucratic or corporate infrastructure to drive it. And appearing on a day to day basis, just like the sun rising in the east every day. The drive of THE one person, and the “साथी हाथ बढ़ाना. . .” pull and push of the entire bandwagon. In my entire personal experience of all the young years I have, I have never seen or even heard someone mention something similar; of the classic real life manifestation of the celebrated poetic idiom of Majrooh Sb – “. . . लोग साथ आते गए, और कारवां बनता गया”.

Beyond all the kudos and accolades and all the bouquets and all the doffed headgear that we can shout out with joy, we must also acknowledge and honor – that element of destiny that actually drives all the human endeavors. Like the Marco of ‘Guide’ says to Raju, when he discovers the lost caves of ancient history, replete with sculpted beauties – a lifetime of aspirations realized. He says, “. . . लेकिन तुम जानते हो राजू, आज तक कोई पारखी यहाँ तक क्यों नहीं आया? क्योंकि ये काम मेरी किस्मत में लिखा था।” [“But do you know Raju, why no connoisseur has ever reached here? Because this discovery was destined to be my endeavor.”]

Yes, the endeavors of the chosen, ordained by destiny. For other than that, there is no plausible explanation as to why it happens so in the affairs of men and in the flow of history. Accomplishments, discoveries, explorations, deeds of triumph – history always has a name written on them. It is never that hordes of men discovered America, or that a whole school of mathematicians got together to propose the methods of Calculus. History always has a name – a singular busybody to associate with high tides of achievements.

This blog, by any measure, is a feat of incalculable perseverance, and defined merit that has endured years and years of continuity. And that is yet an understatement, as for the subject matter that this blog deals with – the unending ocean of music that is the Hindi film song. And a project that has now assumed a life of its own. At the 16,800 mark today, we are just about at the one third mark, considering just the first five decades of Hindi cinema. And not even at one fifth, if the scale expands to cover almost the entire ten decades of film music – as the time passes. Only an insightful vision can fathom the purpose, the purposefulness, and the lasting dedication that has brought this humble beginning that started with saying – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” to that zenith of accomplishment where the burden of the group song now is

Geeton Se Dosti Hai, Music Se Yaari Hai
Aise Maze Ki Pyaare Zindagi Hamaari Hai

A Labor of Love – so rightly printed in the banner of our home page. There is no other way accomplishments of such enormous magnitude are made. Decidedly yes, one song at a time. But the cumulative effect of the persistent doggedness and the dedicated perseverance brings us here to this pinnacle of a looming mountain range ahead.

There is so much about this blog that boggles the mind that I would like to propose we stop calling this Atul-Song-a-Day Blog and start calling it Atul-Song-a-Day Boggler. Because that is what happens with this bandwagon – a new mind boggling something or the other week-in and week-out. Everything is so colossal and titanic about this blog that it is now beyond even creating wonder in the minds of regulars.

And yet, we have events on the blog that shake us all. Three days ago, on 25th Jan, the visitor clock on our home paged logged in the 15 Millionth visit. Atul ji had done some basic averaging to announce that we are clocking more than three thousand visitors per day, which in turn translates to two visitors hitting this blog every minute. Quite a crazy number considering that this blog deals with a topic that one would consider as not being the choice of majority of the social media users. Hindi film song, and that too pre 1980s. And goodness, non digital music – who would prefer that in this age. But of course, the numbers belie expectations. 3000+ hits a day – I am sure very few non-commercial, non-social-media web sites can boast of such a massive following.

So, 168th century. And 15 million visitors. Celebrations are called for and have been announced. But of the date today, there is one more celebration that we must honor and observe. Suman Kalyanpur, an eminent and essential Diva of Hindi cinema, turns 85 today.

The profiles and biographies and discographies – all have been touched upon and presented in numerous posts on this blog itself. I will not attempt to present those details again. I will talk about Suman Kalyanpur, as I see her in my mind, an artist, an accomplished singer who has made her mark on the history of Indian cinema, in face of many odds and struggles.

The singular expression that comes to mind when her name is mentioned – a quiet and humble persona that has led a blemish-less career as a playback singer, a career that has lasted almost four decades of active performance. The tinsel town that is India’s film industry, is a hard and difficult place to survive. Much has been said about the circumstances that have been faced by many a talented and gifted artists who did not get their seat on the stage of first tier performers. And it is surprising to see many a name that did not make it.

But surely, here is a name that was not a first preference of the top line banners and music directors. Despite that, to make a mark and leave behind memories of songs that will never be forgotten – that is surely an accomplishment. A major part of her repertoire belongs to the B and C grade cinema. And when one listens to those obscure and forgotten sounds and melodies, one is surely inclined to wonder.

Today, I present an obscure and unheard melody – a song from an obscure film from 1963 – ‘Royal Mail’. One of the many variations of the theme of Zorro that have kept appearing regularly in Indian cinema. For a long time, this film was unavailable, until recently, when the video of this appeared online. Although the film is available now, but all the songs of this film are not. Especially this song, a solo rendition by Suman Kalyanpur – I have not been able to locate it online, and so I have uploaded it from my collection.

Way back in 2014, I had uploaded one song of this film, at the request of a reader of another blog. That song is “Chali Jaaye Re Jeevan Ki Gaadi”. The lead pair in this film are somewhat unknown names – Mahesh Kumar and Ambika. The above mentioned song was picturised on this lead pair. And today’s song also features the lead pair. Mahesh Kumar is present in the clip, but only Ambika is lip syncing the song. The dialogues leading into the song indicate the situation. The Rajkumari (Ambika) was in some trouble, and a masked vigilante (Mahesh Kumar) saves her. This masked person is known in the land as Royal Mail, and is a friend of the poor and the oppressed, and a foe of the oppressors. And when he asks permission to leave, Rajkumari breaks into this song, expressing her gratitude and requesting the masked masquerader to stay and accept her love.

The words are from the pen of Indeevar, and the music is by Avinash Vyas. An unheard and lovely song that I post today, to honor Suman ji on her 85th birthday. I wish her well, I wish her good health and comfort and I wish her many more such celebrations to follow.

So, we have had centuries today, we have had millions, and we also have an important birthday celebration. 28th Jan, 2022 – a red letter day of sorts.

I wish Atul ji, and the rest of the gang of bandwagoneers many more centuries up ahead. That the drums may keep rolling and the band keeps on playing – all the wonderful music that we love.

I would like to close this post with some lines remembered from the very first song posted by Atul ji, four thousand nine hundred and forty one days ago –

ab aage jo bhi ho anjaam, dekha jaayega
khuda tarash liya, aur bandagi kar li

Happy listening.


Song – Zindagi Dene Wale Dil To Mera Leta Jaa  (Royal Mail) (1963) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

dil ki aankhon se tujhko dekha
hum ne pehchaan liya
tere dil ki pooja mein
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

phool sa dil seena parbat sa
tujh sa koi dildaar kahaan
tere iraade rok sakey jo
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

sab kuchh de kar kuchh na liya
tu kaisa dene waala hai
tera shukriya jaane waale
kaisa jaadu daala hai
kaisa jaadu daala hai
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

दिल की आँखों से तुझको देखा
हमने पहचान लिया
तेरे दिल की पूजा में
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

फूल सा दिल सीना परबत सा
तुझ सा कूई दिलदार कहाँ
तेरे इरादे रोक सके जो
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

सब कुछ दे कर कुछ ना लिया
तू कैसा देने वाला है
तेरा शुक्रिया जाने वाले
कैसा जादू डाला है
कैसा जादू डाला है
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

“Kaaran”(1980) was a recent movie by the standards of this blog. But the movie has ended up becoming a forgotten movie by now. This movie was directed by B R Ishara for BHagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir. The movie had Raj Kiran, Shoma Anand, Navin Nischol, Ramesh Deo, Aruna Irani etc in it.

IMDB contains its storyline as below:

Mayadevi, for the sake of her modeling career, compromises and gets pregnant. She abandons her child Suraj as soon as he is born. After 8 years, Suraj’s caretaker dies, and fate brings the child back to Mayadevi. Mayadevi has a carefree and unethical lifestyle. Suraj comes to know that Mayadevi is his mother, and he wants her to accept him as her son, but she does not. This angers Suraj. He turns a rebel and vows to revenge. Suraj tries to kill Mayadevi, unsuccessfully though, and gets arrested. Police department’s welfare officer Gill decides to turn Suraj to a good citizen. Suraj escapes jail. On the run, Suraj comes across Shashi, another victim of the male dominated society and an unmarried mother to be. Events leads Gill and Shashi to persuade Suraj to mend his ways. Mayadevi also accepts him as his son.

One can say that this movie was ahead of its time and that was the reason why it flopped.

The movie had three songs in it, all of them being male solos.

Here are the details of the two songs that have been covered so far.

Blog Post number Song Date of post Singer
13250 Saawan aag lagaaye re 16 May 2017 Yesudas
14383 Kaaran na jaane koi 31 May 2018 Kishore Kumar

The third and final song from “Kaaran”(1980) is a male solo sung by Rafi. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

It is a less known song, or a rare song. But what a gem of a song ! A forgotten gem indeed.

With this song, all the songs of “Kaaran”(1980) get covered in the blog. “Kaaran”(1980) thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Jiska darshan karne ko sooraj nikalta hai wo tum ho(Kaaran)(1980) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho
jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho
jiski chamak churaane ko
ye chaand machalta hai
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho

nazar mili jab tumse
koi aur nazar na aaya
koi aur nazar na aaya
tumhen banaa kar rab ne apna
sundar roop dikhaaya
sundar roop dikhaaya
jiske saamne aane ko
darpan tadapta hai
wo tum ho
jiske saamne aane ko
darpan tadapta hai
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho

taal se taal nikalte hain
sangeet basa baaton mein
sangeet basa baaton mein
kismat likh sakti ho tum
wo kala chhupi haathon mein
wo kala chhupi haathon mein
jis’se haath milaane ko
har koi tarasta hai
wo tum ho
jis’se haath milaane ko
har koi tarasta hai
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Maanavtaa’. This is another movie from the year 1972 which is still missing on the blog.

I do not remember to have listened to the songs of this movie earlier. I think this must be an obscure movie of its time. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip-synced by Swaroop Dutt. Also seen in the picturisation of this song is Radha Saluja. Before listening to the song let us have a look at the alphabetical list of movies of 1972 up to this movie.

Here is the alphabetical list of movies of 1972 up to today’s movie, which is the 67th film in this list.
Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Kundan’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs. Readers may refer to previous episodes of this series for earlier details – “Baanka Sipahiya Aaya Mori Daiyya“.

tere vishaal hriday ne paai

ek badi tujh mein achchhaai
ek badi tujh mein achchhaai
pyaar mein tere hai sachchaai
madira bhi tu

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics

arey kahaan ke ae
dhanyawaad
kavichand pukaare ae
jug jug jiyo kanojirai
manokaamnaa pooran huyi hai

sharda maay

gajbhar chhaati
jaichanda ki ee ee
kaaya singh baran jo suhaay

arey moonchhen chaat rahin gaalon ko
ah ahaa ha
moonchhe chaat rahin gaalon ko o
choli badle wohi rahi jaaye

kya kehna hai raajneeti ko
raja Ramchandra sharmaat
arrey dushman ke ghar se main aaya
swaagat kiyo mitr ki bhaant

kilaa banaaya hai lohe ka
rakshaa kare kang ki dhaar
arrey kya majaal jo praan bachaa kar
panchhi nikal jaaye us paar h
chauthhe parkote ke andar
banaa swayamwar laal kamaal

arrey bade bade raajaa ha aa
ahaa haa haa
bade bade raaja
chadhhi chadhhi aayen
dekhen kise milat jaimaal
arey gajab dhaak jaychand rai ki
dhamke saaraa hindustan

arrey baat karoon kyaa
baat karoon kyaa
baat karoon kyaa
baat karoon kya auran ki
jab

ho jab kaanpe
dilli ka Chauhan ….

My God ! This is my 900th post on the Blog !

I just can’t believe it. I feel like having written my First post just the other day. How time flies !

But this also means that I have enjoyed writing posts on this Blog. It has been exactly 8 years that I have been writing posts, primarily on old time films, songs and the people connected with them. My first post appeared here on 1-10-2012, when I was 72 year old. At the end of the 8 years period, I have 900 articles on my name and I am 80 years old.

When my first post appeared here on 1-10-2012, I had already posted 400 comments, film reviews and information tit bits on old films on the Blog. With so much of information, it was expected by Atulites that someday I will write posts. Personally. I had never thought of that. There is a story behind how my posts started appearing on this Blog.

At the end of September 2012, one of my friends sent me a song from the film Savitri-1937. I was quite excited to get such a rare song. Savitri-37 was the first Mythological film by Bombay Talkies and also their popular Hero Ashok Kumar ( later he acted in one more Mythological film ” Uttara Abhimanyu”-46. Thank God he never acted in another Mythological film ! He was a perfect misfit in them.). I wrote to Atul ji that I had that song and suggested that he should post it. I volunteered to provide the necessary details of the film etc. He wrote back asking me to send him the information on that song. Enthusiastically, I wrote a long essay-like post about the film, song, story etc. and sent it to him, so that he should post the rare song.

Next day i.e. on 1-10-2012, I got an email from Atul ji that he has posted the write up on film Savitri song, as my Post. I was pleasantly surprised. Honestly, I was thrilled too ! My post and on this Blog ? How sweet ! By evening, there were 36 comments on the post. Most Atulites welcomed my step of becoming a post contributor. I was really overwhelmed. Then I decided, anyway I was in the Swimming Pool, so why not enjoy swimming ?

Thus started my journey of 900 posts. All the credit goes to our Leader- ATUL JI. His encouragement, motivation and help from time to time was an asset for me. Atul ji is not expressive about the good deeds he does, but I am indebted to him. I learnt using the Computer when I was past my 70 years of age. So, there used to be many mistakes in my typing the articles like in using the upper/lower cases, use of Capitals, Punctuation marks, construction of sentences etc etc. But Atul ji and Sudhir ji stretched their tolerance limits to maximum and accepted me as I was. Since 2018 onwards, I conscientiously made changes in my writing, checking the article for mistakes, doing corrections before sending it etc. I also changed the type of the script Font that I was using, for more clarity of reading and today, I feel, my writings are far better than earlier times. Sudhir ji’s help has been particularly useful in the last 8 years. Thank you, ATUL JI and SUDHIR JI, for making me what I am today in the Blogosphere and amongst the like minded people of the Internet, Facebook etc.

My 800th post was on 29-9-2019. The 900th post too is in September. Thanks to all my readers, friends, Group Atulites and well wishers.

Today’s song is from the film Malati Madhav-1955. This is a story from the Sanskrit play ‘Malti Madhav’ written by Bhavbhuti. Wikipedia has this to say about Bhavbhuti and the story of Malati Madhav….

Bhavabhuti was an 8th-century scholar of India noted for his plays and poetry, written in Sanskrit. His plays are considered the equal of the works of Kalidasa. Bhavabhuti was born in Padampura, Vidarbha, in Gondia district, on the Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh border. His real name was Srikantha Nilakantha, and he was the son of Nilakantha and Jatukarni. He received his education at ‘Padmapawaya’, a place some 42 km South-West of Gwalior. Dayananidhi Paramahansa is known to be his guru. He composed his historical plays at ‘Kalpi’, a place on the banks of river Yamuna.

He is believed to have been the court poet of king Yashovarman of Kannauj. Kalhana, the 12th-century historian, places him in the entourage of the king, who was defeated by Lalitaditya Muktapida, king of Kashmir, in 736 AD.

The play is set in the city of Padmavati. The king desires that his minister’s daughter Malati marry a youth called Nandana. Malati has been in love with Madhava ever since she saw him and drew his portrait. Madhava reciprocates, and draws a portrait of her in turn. Malati suspects her father’s motives in falling in with the King’s plans for her. A side plot involves the lovers’ friends Makaranda and Madayantika. The latter is attacked by a tiger, and Makaranda rescues her, getting wounded in the process. After numerous travails, all ends well, with the two couples uniting. According to the renowned Sanskritist Daniel H.H. Ingalls, the Malatimadhava is a work that combines love and horror with a felicity never again equaled in Sanskrit literature.

Today’s song is sung by Malati Pande and chorus. Malati Pande is one of my most favourite marathi singers. Her Bhavgeets in the 50’s decade were extremely popular in Maharashtra and with all the Marathi people wherever they were in the world. Malati Pande was also a Classical singer and has sung very few songs in Hindi films, but excelled in Classical and Marathi songs. Her songs like ” tya tithe, palikade, tikde, maziya priyeche zopde” or ” kunihi paay naka vajavu” are evergreen. She is one of those Marathi singers like Manik Verma, Jyotsna Bhole, Hirabai Badodekar, Saraswati Rane, Shobha Gurtu, Nalini Mulgaonkar, Ram Marathe, Bhimsen Joshi, D.V.Paluskar etc, who just visited Hindi films out of curiosity, but returned to their comfort zones immediately.

Malati was born on 19-4-1930 at Poona, She was attracted to music from her childhood. She was trained by several teachers like Bhaskarrao Ghodke, Trivedi Master, Vilayat Hussain Khan, Vinayak buwa Patwardhan, Bholanath Ghatt and also her husband Pt. Padmakar Barve. At the age of 15 years, she was invited to sing on A.I.R. Poona. She did her Ph.D in Music.

When Sudhir Phadke brought her to Prabhat for audition, for songs of Marathi version of ‘ Aagey Badho ‘-47, Fattelal was very happy with her style of singing and thanked Phadke. Malati Pande’s first lori song “kunihi Paay Naka vajavoo…” was with Singer & Music Director Gajanan Watve and poet Shrinivas Kharkar. It is said that afterwards, many singers and music directors recorded lori songs, but Malati Pande’s this lori song is the best and is still remembered by the Marathi listeners.

Malati Pande sang many Marathi songs under the music direction of Gajanan Watve, Sudhir Phadke, Ram Phatak, Shrinivas Khale, Datta Dawjekar, Madhukar Pathak etc.

Malati Pande sang some 15 Hindi songs under the music direction of K. Bhole, Avinash Vyas, Sudhir Phadke in the following Hindi films – Seeta Swayamvar-48, Maya Bazar-49, Shrikrishna Satyabhama-51, Shri Vishnu Bhagwan-51 and Malati Madhav-55.

Malati married classical singer Pt. Padmakar Barve. They have a son Rajiv Barve who is a singer. His daughter Priyanka Barve is also a famous singer in Marathi and Hindi films. Malati Pande died on 27-12-1997.

Let us now enjoy her last song in Hindi films…

Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re

Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhhaaye re
