Today’s song is from the costume/stunt film ‘Jungle King’ (1959). The film was made by Artists United, Bombay (the name reminds me of the famous Hollywood company ‘United Artists’). It was produced by a group calling itself ‘Four X’ (for reasons best known to them) composed of Morris, Akbar, Asghar and Haider. The director was Masood and the music was by the pair of Bipin-Babul. The cast was very interesting. It consisted of Shaaga, Haaydu (what strange names! Never heard them !!), Sheila Ramani, Anwar, Majnu, Kamal Mehra, Heera Sawant, Tun Tun, Kabban Mirza, Dambe, Doud, Badshah, Rampuri Mehmood, Elephant Laxmi and many others.

I have never heard such strange names of actors in any film. Shaaga, Haaydu, Dambe, Rampuri Mehmood ? Where did they get these people with such names ? That way, earlier also I have come across some queer names in stunt films, like Bajarbattoo, Chemist, Dhondu, Babu Fatty, Gareeb Nawab etc. Few years back, Dr. Surjit Singh ji had downloaded 7,000 names of actors who acted in Hindi films from 1931 to 2000, from an internet site, which is extinct now. He had put it on the RMIM forum from where I downloaded the list. But in the intervening times, with me changing my Laptop several times till today, the list was lost in transit from one Laptop to the next one. The point is there were many funnier names of actors in that list.

Old time artistes had no means of publicity like today. With TV, Social Media, WA, Fb, newspapers, glossy magazines etc, publicity is easier for modern actors. Old time actors were forgotten as soon as they stopped appearing in films. Today’s film ‘Jungle King’ (1959) is a special film because in its cast are 2 old time actors who were forgotten totally with the times. One was a heroine of the then leading heroes, who fell on bad times and accepted whatever films came her way. But wisely she got married and spent a rich and comfortable retired life. The other one was an occasional singer, who held an honorable post in All India Radio and his songs became a choice of critics in those days. Let us know more about them.

One was actress Sheila Ramani,  a forgotten name today, but most of us will remember her in Navketan’s ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954) where she was cast as Anglo-Indian club dancer – Sylvie. I also remember her as the leading lady in ‘Funtoosh’ (1956), also from the banner of Navketan. Sheila was born on 2-4-1931, in Karachi. She was selected as Miss Mussoorie in 1948 and judged ‘Miss Simla’ in 1950. She made her debut as Champa, the femme fatale of ‘Badnam’ (1952), and revealed herself as a danseuse of charm in ‘Anand Math’ (1952). She was one of the few Sindhi actresses besides Sadhana, who made it big in Bollywood. She was mostly seen as an upper class mod girl in the 50s, a role she enacted to perfection all through that swinging era in films like V Shantaram’s ‘Teen Batti Char Raasta’ (1953), Sheikh Mukhtar’s ‘Mangu’ (1954), ‘Meenar’ (1954), ‘Railway Platform’ (1955), and ‘Funtoosh’ (1956).

Her uncle Sheikh Latif alias Lachchu was a famous Pakistani producer who produced films like ‘Pathan’ (1955), ‘Khizan Kai Baad’ (1955), ‘Darbar-e-Habib’ (1956) etc. Sheila visited Karachi – Pakistan on the request of her uncle, to play the lead role in Pakistani film ‘Anokhi’ (1956). The film was based on Hollywood’s ‘Fabulous Senorita’ (1952). “Gari Ko Chalana Babu, Zara Halkey Halkey Halkey, Zara Dil Ka Jaam Na Chhalkey” sung by Zubeda Khanum was the popular song from the film which did modestly good business in Pakistan. The movie’s great music was composed jointly by Timir Baran (a Bengali who came from India for this purpose) and Hassan Latif. Sheila went back to India and remained as a middle-of-the-range performer in Bombay films. In the later part of her career, she was reduced to obscure films with titles that sounded like ‘Jungle King’ (1959), and ‘The Return of Superman’ (1960) – one of the last films composed by Anil Biswas. In all, she acted in 24 films. Her last film was ‘Awaara Ladki’ (1967).

Sheila was very fond of sports, especially football and swimming. Ballroom dancing was a virtual addiction for her and she used to go out dancing as often as she could. Sheila was 5 feet four inches tall, and was so fastidious that any dress she would wear won’t be repeated for six months to come at least.

According to her son Rahul Cowasji, she retired from acting in 1962 and married  Jal Edi Cowasji on 31st March 1963. Part of her family that remained in Pakistan converted to Islam. She was a Hindu. She used to live in Mumbai with her husband Jal Cowasji (President of Bombay Dyeing) till 1981. They moved to Khartoum for 3 years and then to Sri Lanka for 3 years. After her husband’s death in 1984 she migrated to Australia on her own in the late 80’s and lived in Sydney and Surfers Paradise until health problems required her to return to India in the new millennium.  She used to live in her husband’s ancestral home in Mhow, near Indore (MP). She was frail and bed ridden for a few years before her death on 15-7- 2015.

Her favorite Hindi film of her career was ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954). Sheila was also the leading lady of India’s first Sindhi film after partition – ‘Abana’ (1958), in which young Baby Sadhna played her younger sister’s role.  [Thanks to Cineplot for some of the information in this Biosketch].

The other one was an  AIR announcer and an anchor. He was also a singer and an actor for a few films. His name was Kabban Mirza. Kabban Mirza’s name is known to very few people. He is one of those people who appeared like a comet and disappeared like a lightning. In his short stint with Hindi films, he acted in 2 films – ‘Jungle King’ (1959) (he was also the Assistant Director for this film) and ‘Murad’ (1961). He sang 1 song in the film ‘Captain Azad’ (1964) and 2 songs in the film ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983). He claimed to have sung a song “Is Pyar Ki Basti Mein” in a film called ‘Sheeba’,  without getting credited. No film with the name ‘Sheeba’ is traceable, but a song with the same mukhda is found in the film ‘Jungle King’ (1959), credited to Suman Kalyanpur and Babul with chorus. We don’t find a third voice in this song. It is possible that the film ‘Sheeba’ was left incomplete and the same song was used in the film ‘Jungle King’ (1959) with Babul as the male singer.

The question is why Kabban Mirza is remembered with such a meager contribution to film acting and singing ? The answer is because of his deep voice. Mirza who briefly flirted with the film world, left a lasting impression with his songs for producer-director Kamal Amrohi’s epic, ‘Razia Sultan’.

The songs — “Aayee Zanzeer Ki Jhankar Khuda Khair Kare” and “Tera Hijr Mera Naseeb Hai” — rendered in Mirza’s deep voice, were filmed on the slave-warrior character of Yaqut played by Dharmendra in the film.

Mirza was picked out after Amrohi auditioned dozens of singers in his search for a unique voice to suit the character of the slave-warrior. The film’s music director, Khayyam, reminisces: ‘‘Kamal Saab was a perfectionist. He called over 50 singers for a voice test, but remained unconvinced. Then someone suggested Kabban Mirza who was also a popular nauhaa khan (one who sings elegy for Imam Hussain’s martyrdom during Muharram). Kamal Saab’s search ended with Mirza.’’

Overnight his popularity soared. Mirza got a few more singing offers, including for BR Chopra’s ‘Nikaah’ (1982), but his preoccupation with radio came in the way. ‘‘His voice had a unique bass, unheard of in the industry,’’ says poet-lyricist Nida Fazli who penned a song for Razia Sultan.

Kabban Mirza was born in 1937 in Hapur, Uttar Pradesh. He belonged to the  Siddi community. This is a community that migrated from Central Asia/North Africa, during the time when India was ruled by Muslim dynasties. These people were brought in as slaves in the courts of the rulers of Delhi, Lucknow and other kingdoms in North India. They are also known as ‘Habshi’. It is curiously incidental that Yaqut, the slave in the court of Razia Sultan, also belonged to this ‘Habsh’ community. It sounds almost providentially ordained that the two people, separated by more than seven centuries – the original persona, and the singer who would sing for that historical character in a film, belong to the same original ethnic community. (Another very well known personality of Indian cinema belongs to this community – His real name was SYED HASSAN ALI ZAIDI. His family used to call him MIJJAN Miyan and screen name was Kumar, the actor who played the role of the sculptor in the film ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960)).

The child in Kabban took to music and singing very early. He was drawn to the ‘nauhaa’ style of singing – the traditional ‘marsiaa’ and ‘taaziadaari’ singing on the solemn occasion of Muharram. It is noted that the child Kabban used to practice his singing with his head inserted inside a ‘matka’ (earthen pot).

As he grew up, he was recognized as a very impressive and inspiring ‘nauha-rubaan’ – a singer of traditional Muharram renderings. His voice caught the attention, and he got his break with All India Radio, in the music department. This phase of his life is not well documented, no details are available about his training in classical music and who his teachers were. But his depth of knowledge about the detailed nuances of classical ragas is well acknowledged in his presentations of the radio program ‘Sangeet Sarita’. He anchored this program for many years. He would play select film songs based on Hindustani classical music, and then described in great detail the classical basis, the raag and its variations, the sur, the taal, and their interplay. He garnered a good measure of fan following for this program.

He had joined AIR in Lucknow, but he was soon transferred to Bombay station, where he would take on the anchor role for such noteworthy programs as ‘Hawa Mahal’, ‘Sangeet Sarita’ and ‘Chhaaya Geet’, for many years. There is some mention that he was approached to sing for music director Ravi in BR Chopra’s ‘Nikaah’ (1982), but apparently his association with AIR and his popularity as the anchor of mainline radio programs, came in the way of his further association with the world of films.

The two songs of ‘Razia Sultan’ became very popular in their time – the record sales were impressive. But as destiny would have it, this rise in popularity was accompanied by the most unfortunate health news for Kabban Mirza. He was detected with cancer of the larynx. This was a stroke of extreme bad luck from which he could never recover. His voice and his throat were his vital and essential assets. And that is where fate struck its most unkind blow. He went into prolonged treatment, but eventually he had to be operated upon. The year was 1993. He recovered from surgery and returned home. Thankfully, the malady seemed to be in remission, but then never got to use his voice for any serious and significant assignments.

Mirza, who was admitted to Jaslok Hospital on May 9 after he complained of cough and neck pain, came back home minus his once-famous voice. The tracheotomy tube inserted in his windpipe allows him to breathe, not speak. ‘‘He was diagnosed with throat cancer and treated 10 years ago also. But its relapse has shattered us. He won his bread and our happiness through his voice. Now he has lost that very voice,’’ bemoans Rifat, Mirza’s daughter.

The respite from the physical predicament lasted for a decade. The problem reared its painful head once again, and in May/June 2003, he had to undergo another surgery that resulted in the removal of a significant part of his larynx, leaving him practically with no sound in his throat. His vocal communications were reduced to very limited rasping utterances at the best. This regrettable fate for someone who had once been honored with the Golden Voice Award by the AIR. He reportedly died in June 2006.

Blog Day :

5119 Post No. : 17068

Today 24th July 2022 is the eighty-fifth birth anniversary of actor, producer, director, writer, and lyricist Manoj Kumar.
He was born as Harikishan Giri Goswami on 24th July 1937 in Abbottabad (then in North-West frontier province of British India and now in Pakistan).

Manoj Kumar has been one of the many favorites of us, those who have grown up in the years of ‘seventies’, or people like me who were born in end-sixties and grow up in the ‘1970s’.

We get to watch many of his old movies including black and white movies (e.g., ‘Woh Kaun Thhi’ etc), and the current movies released during the period till eighties and then nineties. Since Manoj Kumar’s movies were having good music and songs they were liked very much. And apart from that his movies had his ‘special touch’ in those which he directed, or he acted. Manoj Kumar has his special place in the history of Hindi Films.

Apart from being an actor Manoj Kumar has been a Director, Producer, Writer, Editor, and Lyricist too.

Today on his birth anniversary I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Santosh-1989’ which is penned by him only. Out of the seven songs this movie has Manoj Kumar had written lyrics for one song in this movie. (Remaining six songs were written by Santosh Anand).

‘Santosh-1989’ was an ‘East-n-West Movies’ presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan.
Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie.

It had Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others.

Story of ‘Santosh-1989’ was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by V.V. Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik).

As mentioned above this movie had seven songs written by Santosh Anand (six songs) and Manoj Kumar (one song).
Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

The songs from this movie are good to listen and I have presented four songs from this movie earlier on the blog.

Following is the list of songs this movie had. Four of these seven songs have been posted on the blog earlier.

SNo Title of the Song Lyricist Singer/s Posted On the blog
01 Are logon tumhe kya hai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar 05.03.2022
02 Bataao tumhen pyaar kaise karoon Santosh Anand Nitin Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle 27.06.2022
03 Kahkahon ke liye Santosh Anand Mahendra Kapoor
4 Yoon lagne lagi aajkal zindagaani Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar, Nitin Mukesh 27.06.2018
05 Aaj main bechain hoon Santosh Anand Mahendra Kapoor, chorus 09.01.2022
06 Bansi waale ne gher lai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar
07 Tera allah beli Manoj Kumar Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Amjad Khan is lip-syncing the song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor and the picturization shows that this song is happening in the jail premises where all the jail inmates are performing and the police officers also watching their performance (which should be a part of extracurricular activities I guess 😊). In the backdrop of the performance there is a plan to help Manoj Kumar to run away from the jail custody which he succeeds (by the time the song ends) however the Police Inspector finally comes to know of this, and he shoots Amjad Khan.

Let us now enjoy this song written by Manoj Kumar.

Today on his birth anniversary we wish Manoj Kumar a ‘very happy birthday’ and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from a film called ” Azadi ke Baad “-1951.

HFGK shows 10 songs for this film. It does not give record numbers or singer’s names(except for 2) for the songs. Today’s song is not listed on this page, for whatever reasons. Nevertheless, it is confirmed that this song is from this film only, as the uploader has given the photo of this record on RMIM and also mentioned on YouTube that this song is not listed in HFGK. Possibly, at the time of compilation, the record details with singers’ names etc were not available to Hamraz ji. It happened in some other film cases too.

The film was made in Calcutta by The Great Oriental Pictures. It was directed by D.K.Chatterjee. I found only this one film for this director in HFGK. The music was by K.P. Sen. This name may not be known to most readers.

During the early phase of filmmaking, Bombay was the attraction for people connected with films. Actors, directors and composers used to rush to Bombay from all over India to try their Luck.

Bengal was also not an exception. Initially almost all regional film centres in India were on a smaller scale than Bombay. Therefore more opportunities were available here. Out of the hundreds of aspirants, those with great luck and readiness to do hard work with patience won the race and made their career in Bombay. On Hard work and Luck, I remember a comment by our Atul ji on one of my posts. He commented ” The harder one works, the Luckier one gets ” (31-1-2018). How true ! Cases like composer Naushad who slept on footpaths of Bombay or Sunil Dutt, who lived in Dharavi slum, during their struggle periods are examples of such successes.

During the 1930s and the 40’s decades many Bangla composers came to Bombay and gave music to Hindi films, ranging from 1 film to 5 films. Some of them were…Radhacharan Bhattacharya, N. R. Bhattacharya, Shoolpani Mukherjee, S.P.Mukherjee, V.V.Ganguli, Niren Lahiri, Shivrani Ghosh, Mihir Kiran Bhattachrya, A.C.Biswas, Hiren Bose, Bhishmadev Chatterjee, Ramani Mukherjee, Anath Bose, Kazi nasrul islam, Anil Bagchi, Dakhina Tagore, Dhiuren Mitter, Kartik Chatterjee, Himangshu Dutt Sursagar, Jagmohan Sursagar, Subal Dasgupta, Sailesh duttagupta, Gopen Mullick, Gyanprakash Ghosh, Naresh Bhattacharya, Pratap mukherjee, Khshirodchandra Bhattacharya, Ravi Roychaudhuri, prafull Chaudhuri, T.K.Das etc etc. Some composers who did not succeed here, were real big names in Bengal, like Kazi Nazrul Islam,Niren Lahiri, Hiren Bose, Bhishmadev Chatterjee, Himangshu Dutt Sursagar, Subal Dasgupta, Gopen Mullick, Gyanprakash Ghosh etc etc

K.P.Sen, Music Director of today’s film had given music to 3 more Hindi films- Baap-46, Do Baten-49 and Shadi ke Baad-49. Film Azadi ke baad-51 was his last Hindi film. No more information about him is available. I have always stated that it is extremely difficult to get information on most Bangla artistes in any other language than Bangla.

The cast of the film was Asit Baran, Mira Mishra, Pearl,Parvati, Kalpana, Pannalal Bose, Nripen, Rekha, Sujata etc. Pearl was the sister of Violet Cooper and Patience Cooper among the 7 sisters. Pearl acted in 6 Hindi films – Indra Sabha-32, Anokha prem-34, Khudadad-35, Jahanara-35, Burkhewali-36 and Abla ki Shakti-40. Her sister Violet acted in 5 Hindi films and Patience Cooper acted in 16 Silent and 34 Talkie Hindi films. The hero was Asit Baran.

Asit Baran was born on 19-11-1913 at Calcutta in a middle class family.His pet name was kalo. He was not much interested in schooling. He learnt music and Tabla from Gyanprakash Ghosh. He became an expert in Tabla playing and did few programmes on Calcutta A.I.R. also. In one of the All India Music Conferences,Pahadi Sanyal noticed him and invited him to New Theatres. Impressed with his good looks and singing capability, he got the role of Pahadi sanyal’s younger Brother in the film ” Protisruti ”-42. He acted in severai Hindi and Bangla films of New Theatres.

His first Hindi film- Saugandh-42, was a remake of ‘ Protisruti ‘. He did the same role in Hindi also. His songs became popular.In all,Asit Baran acted and sang in 43 films-Hindi and Bangla together. Some of his Hindi films were Saugandh,Jawab,Wapas,Arabian Nights,Parineeta,Suhag Sindoor,Kashinath,Wasiyatnama,Manzoor,Roop kahani,faraar,Azadi ke baad etc. He left New Theatres in 1952 and came to Bombay on the invitation by Sailesh Mukherjee,to act in Suhag Sindoor. By this time,his voice had deteriorated and he was given playback by Sailesh Mukherjee. Same thing happened to Parineeta also. He acted in 14 Hindi films and sang 24 songs in 10 films. His last film was Babla-53

Asit Baran returned to Calcutta and did some more Bangla films. He founded a Theatre group called “Rangorash” which spread the teachings of Shri Ramkrishna Paramhans ji.

He died on 27-12-1984 at Calcutta.

Today’s song is almost a qawwali – an unusual genre of songs in films coming from Calcutta. By the way, as per an internet site, the film Azadi ke baad-51 was a remake of Bengali film Sahajatri-51, directed by Agradoot (Bibhuti Laha). Today’s song is sung by Pannalal Bose and chorus. Pannalal Bose was a Bangla actor and singer, This is the only song he sang in Hindi and considering that, his pronunciation and diction of Hindi words is very good. Needless to say that no information is available about him anywhere.

Today’s song is from the film Garma Garam-1957.

The film was made by G.M.Pictures, Bombay. The Producer was Navin C Shah and the Director cum story writer cum Screenplay writer cum Lyricist was P.L. Santoshi. The film had music by Vinod. The 11 songs of the film were written by P L Santoshi, D N Madhok and Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. 3 Songs are already on the Blog and this will be its 4th song. Interestingly, this song is written by Santoshi and RMA Khan jointly, as per a note on HFGK.

Of course, this is nothing new. Such things have happened several times in Hindi films. Here are few examples of joint writing the Lyrics of songs….

1.Footpath-53….The famous song by Talat – ” Shyam e gham ki kasam”….Ali Sardar Jafri and Majrooh Sultanpuri.
2.Miss Bombay-57….” Zindagi bhar gham judai ka….Prem Dhawan and Asad Bhopali
3.Buzdil-51….” Rote rote gujar gayi raat re”….Kaifi Azmi and Shailendra
4.Humlog-51….All songs….Vishwamitra Adil and Uddhav Kumar
5.Pardesi-57….” Rimzim barse paani”….Prem Dhawan and Ali Sardar Jafri

This is one of those strange things that happen in Hindi film industry. Of course, such “Mutual Collaboration” are also found in some cases of Film Direction – where two Directors direct a film jointly (those cases are different where a Director dies and another completed his balance work or where the first director left the film and another took over). This has also happened in Music direction where two MDs jointly gave music (cases of established MD pairs are different).

The second notable thing about the film was – the cast consisted of Agha, Gope, Omprakash, Bhagwan, Marutirao, Chhota Gope, Indira Bansal,Nadira, Rajni, Miss Kamal, Maya Das, Krishna kumari and many others. The film was classified as a ” Stunt’ film. I wonder what stunts this band of comedians performed in the film. I saw this film when it was released simultaneously on 5th July 1957 at Lamington Cinema, Bombay as well as in Ashok talkies in Hyderabad. After seeing the film we felt like having got cheated. The film had no stunts and nothing in the film to make the audience ” Garam” either ! In those times while Vinod’s songs of “Ek thi Ladki-1949″ were still echoing in our ears, music of this film made us completely ” Thanda Thanda” and made us wonder if he was the same MD Vinod of Ek thi ladki ? Here is the film’s story which will prove what I have said….

Wealthy Garibdas has no issues, but only 2 Nephews- Banke, a simpleton and Banwari a chaalbaaz, who spends money on dancing girl-Chandni. Knowing this Garibdas makes his will in the name of Banke. While recording his will on camera, he dies without telling location of his wealth halfway.

Banke contacts the photographer-Asha for enquiry. They fall in love. While searching they find that a map and 6 keys hidden in 6 Golden Chairs had the secret. But the chairs are already sold by Banwari to various people in India. They get addresses from the auctioneer who sold these chairs.

Asha and Banke contact all those buyers and get the 6 keys. meanwhile, Banke comes to know all this and catches up with the pair. There is a fight in Banke and Banwari. Banke wins the fight, but magnanimously gives the keys to Banwari. Seeing this generosity, Banwari has a change of heart and both embrace each others.

Finally, they find a Box. Using the keys, they open the Box, only to find only a piece of white paper written ‘ God helps those who help themselves”.
Asha has an idea. She starts pressing the box in different ways and suddenly it opens and the map is found where the wealth is hidden.
The two brothers share the wealth.

The End.

In the cast of the film, there is a name Maruti Rao. He was a comedy actor and father of Comedienne Guddi Maruti. Earlier to him there was another actor called Marutirao Pehelwan ( father of Dancer Gopi Krishna), who operated from Silent films to Talkie films till early 40’s. Although same name, these actors did not cause any ” Same Name Confusion”, because they operated one after another – without overlapping their career period. However, I still found that some sites making a mix up of their Filmography.

His full name was Marutirao Ganpatrao Parab. He was born on 12-2-1927 at Ahmednagar, near Poona. After completing his Matriculation, he came to Bombay to try his luck in film acting. His first few films like Pagli Duniya-44, and Gajre-48 were without his name in credits He got his credits firmly from film Albela-51. Then he faeatured in many many films…Footpath-53, Baap re Baap-55, Baghdad ka chor-55, Chori chori-56, Guest House-59, Opera House-61, parasmani-63, Lutera-65, Ustad 420-69, Shor-72, Kunwara Baap-74, Don-78 etc etc. In the 60’s he mainly worked in Dara Singh films.

He acted in total 221 films and featured in 34 songs on screen. He also directed 7 films, namely Baghi Shehzada-64, Hum sab ustad Hai-65, Killers-69, Bank Robbery-69, Mangu Dada-70, Kahin aar kahin paar-71 and Hum sab chor hain-73. His last film as actor was Bandish – 1980. As an actor he was not much satisfied, but film direction gave him joy and satisfaction. After his last film he retired from films. However several films like karate-83 and Naya Bakra-85 got delayed releases. He died peacefully on 12-3-1981.

he had married his co-star Miss kamal, a small time actress who worked in films like Dashehra-56, Tartar ka chor-55, Garma Garam -57, Darbar-55, Riyasat-56 etc. etc. Their daughter Guddi Maruti had a better luck in films than both of them. ( Thanks to a note by Rajni kumar Pandya ji, book ‘Eena, meena deeka’ by Sanjit Narvwekar, HFGK, muVyz and my notes).

Today’s song is a Qawali sung by Mohd.Rafi, S D Batish, Asha Bhosale and Shamshad Begum with Chorus.

“Trishna”(1978) was produced by G P Sippy and directed by Anil Ganguly for Sippy Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Shashi Kapoor, Sanjeev Kumar, Rakhi, Bindu, Sujit Kumar, Dinesh Hingoo, Preeti Ganguly, Master Raju, Minu Chitnis, Preetam, Vikrant (Romeo), Adi Irani, M Hanif, Bilimoria etc. The movie also had special appearances by Aziz Naazaan, Jayshree T Uma Dhawan, Raza Murad and Dwara Divecha.

This movie was a quickie movie by G P Sippy, after their blockbuster “Sholay”(1975) while they were working on their next blockbuster project “Shaan”(1980).

The movie “Trishna”(1978) was not a movie that would appeal to the movie audiences of those days. And expectedly, the movie sank without a trace. I was one of the few moviegoers who actually watched this movie.

The movie had just three songs, as befits a “different” movie. Two songs from the movie have already been covered. Here are their details:-

Blog Post number Song Date of post Singer (s)
6640 Din ba din wo mere dil se 14 September 2012 Lata

Here is the third and final song from “Trishna”(1978) to appear in the blog. The song is a qawwaali. It is sung by Aziz Naazaan and chorus. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song was picturised on Aziz Naazaan and others. Jayshree T and Uma Dhawan are the dancers. Sujeet kumar, Rakhee, Sanjeev Kumar, Bindu,Shashi Kapoor are also seen among the audience.

Lyrics weresent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the three songs of “Trishna”(1978) are covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Songs from Artiste Name Films….Second Season….No. 9
————————————————-

Today’s song is from the film Noor Mahal-1965.

from the film title, can you guess who is today’s star of the post in this series ? Difficult to guess correctly. It is not about noorjehan, remember. While I discuss matters about this film and other aspects, you keep guessing about today’s star !

Film Noor Mahal-65 was made by Ratan productions and the film was directed by Nausheer Engineer. This was a Costume film dealing with the age old story of ‘ king, queen, wicked vizier and a lover couple ‘. Possibly this was one of the last such pictures in the late 60’s decade. The trend of films had changed drastically in the 60’s and this type of films had lost its audience now. The director Nausheer Engineer had directed 7 films in his career – all in C grade category. The films were, Inteqam-47, Shamsheerbaaz-53, Carnival queen-55, Diler Daku-57, Circus queen-59, Chini jaadugar-59 and his last film was Noor mahal-1965. There were two earlier films with the same title, one in 1934 and the other in 1954.

An interesting point about today’s film was its Music Director- Jaani Babu Qawwal ( arrangers Sonik-omi). He was born in 1935 at Hinganghat, maharashtra. His real full name was Jaan Mohammed Jani babu. He was known as a good qawwal. He came into films and acted in 9 films, but he sang 40 songs in 30 films. He also tried his hand at being a Music Director. His first attempt was today’s film ” Noor Mahal-1965 ‘. All the 6 songs in this film ( I have heard them all) were very good and 2 qawwalis from this film-including today’s qawwali- became popular. Despite providing good music, he did not get any film as an MD. Maybe because Sonic-Omi had left him. He managed to get two more Muslim religious film somehow – Qoobat E Parwardigaar-78 and Aulia E Islam-79. That was the end of his stint as an MD. His one qawwali ” Mehangai maar gayee” from the film Roti Kapda aur Makan-74 is remembered even today. Jani Babu Qawwal died on 28-1-2008.

The other famous qawwal in films was Shakeela Banu Bhopali. She was multitalented. She acted in 32 films, but sang only 4 songs in 3 films. She too gave music to just 1 film-‘ Maze Le Lo’- 1975. She died on 16-12-2002. These were the only well known qawwals who were active in various film fields.

The cast of the film Noor Mahal-35 was Chitra, Jagdeep, Tiwari, Lalita Desai, W.M.Khan, madhumati and others. One of the cast was Wazir Mohammed Khan aka W.M.khan. He is another interesting person associated with this film. W.M.Khan had the unique honour of being the First ever Male singer in In the Hindi talkie films of india. he had done the role of a Faqir in film ‘ Alam Ara ‘-1931, the first indian Talkie film, in which he had sung a song on screen himself-” de de khuda ke naam pe”. In his 42 years of film career, he acted in 105 films and sang 6 songs in 4 films-namely Alam ara-31, Sair E Paristan-34, Dard E dil-34 and Alam Ara -56. He had also sung, on screen, the famous song ” Aye mere watan ” in the film Kabuliwala-1961.

An Interesting thing about him is that he began his career in Talkie films with ‘Alam Ara’-1931 and ended also with the film Alam Ara-1973. In between, he acted in another version of Alam Ara in 1956, in which he sang the same song from the 1931 film again. But alas, both times, no record was issued on both occasions. Now none of those two films are available to see and enjoy !

Today’s song is sung by Usha Timothy and others. Usha Timothy, born on 8-10-1949, sang only 56 songs in 50 films. Later on she focussed on stage shows and multinational tours with few groups. She had created a stir in the industry by claiming that the famous Patriotic song ” aye mere watan ke logon “, sung famously by Lata Mangeshkar ( and which, reportedly, brought tears to Pandit Nehru’s eyes) was sung by her much earlier than lata, in a stage show conducted by C.Ramchandra himself. This was claimed by her, after the death of C.Ramchandra and could never be corroborated by anyone else. This matter was also discussed fiercely on the RMIM forum some years back.

The story of film Noor mahal-1965 was a concoction of several earlier stunt films. It was woven around a wicked brother, who kills his elder brother-the King. He also tries to kill the queen, the son and a daughter, but some loyal sardar escapes with the children. Cut to 20 years later….The brother now remembers that the king’s children were betrothed to a son and daughter of his friend. He then kills the friends and locks up the son. The daughter , however.
, pretends to love him and marry him. A masked girl rescues the son and they dutifully fall in love, sing songs etc. They are the real betrothed ones. All is well when the brother king is killed and the son becomes the King.

So much for the film. Now we return to our star of the post in this series. This is an actress about whom hardly anybody knows.

In the name of the film Noor Mahal is hidden a name of an actress…NOOR. (short for Noorjahan).

Have you any idea who this actress is ? Yes, she became the wife of comedian Johnny Walker. Born on 21-7-1940, she was the second of the 3 sisters. The eldest was Shakila, then Noor and lastly Nasreen.All 3 sisters joined films, but Shakila was the most famous and had a longer career span than the sisters.
Noor debuted as the child star singing the famous song,” Udan khatole pe ud jaun’ in the film Anmol Ghadi-46. Along with her the other child artist debutant was M.Kabir ( later father of actress Sonam). Then came Dard-47. In both these films, she was credited as Noor Mahal, but after this in all subsequent films, she was billed as Noor only. Noor acted in 16 films. They were Anmol Ghadi-46, Dard-47, khubsurat-52, Baghi-53, Do bigha zameen-53, Laila-54, Noor Mahal-54, khushboo-54, Aarpaar-54 ( singing Main na pyar karungi ), Naukri-54 ( as Kishore kumar’s sister,singing ‘ Chhota sa ghar hoga’ ), Mast Qalandar-55, Shahi chor-55, Sakhi hatim-55, Lutera-55, Heer-56 and Chand ki duniya-59. The last two films got delayed releases.

During the film Aarpaar-54, she acted in a very popular song,’ are na na na Tauba Tauba, main naa pyar karungi”, along with comedian Johnny Walker. Johnny fell in love with her and they got married in 1955. After marriage she stopped taking films anymore. The couple had 3 daughters and 3 sons. All 3 sons studied in the USA, all 3 daughters were married off before Johnny’s retirement from films. She stays in her bungalow, ” Noor Villa ” (as good as Noor Mahal !) in Andheri, Mumbai.

Now let us enjoy this very good qawwali.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 151 # Qawwalis – 14 #
———————————————————————

Qawwalis were common in Hindi films when I was growing up(1968-1983). As I grww watching them in the movies in my childhood, some qawwalis left lasting impression on my impressionable mind.

Qawwalis like ‘raaz ki baat kehdoon to’, ‘jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi’, ‘shirdiwaale sai baba’, ‘raat abhi baaki hai baat abhi baaki hai’, ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’, were the most heard qawwalis when I was growing.

‘Chadhhta sooraj dheere dheere dhalta hai dhal jaayega’ was a favourite of all ‘orchestras’ and one person from a Orchestra from Jalgaon used to sing it so well that always left the audience ‘spell-bound’. I remember this qawwali ever since.

All these qawwalisgrew up on me as I grew up in my life.

I have a special fascination for this genre of music. It always takes me to an entirely different ‘musical world’.

In the movies of ‘seventies’ qawwalis were a major attraction in the movies. Qawwalis like ‘ham to jhuk kar salaam karte hain’, ‘ham lootne aayen hain’, etc. were liked very much by the audience. There may be many more which I could have missed to mention here.

Jaani Babu Qawwal, Shakila Bano Bhopali and Aziz Nazan were the names I particularly remember whenever there was a discussion on qawwalis.
And as I had mentioned in my posts earlier that another name which I vaguely remembered was Shankar-Shambhu. At that age I could not understand the greatness of these peoples, and it is only after coming into the contact of this blog, that I got to read, learn, and know about these stalwarts in Qawwalis.

There was a phase when disco made an entry into HFM in mid-eighties to let us say till mid-nineties when Qawwalis took a little backseat (I think), otherwise they were always likened and had always been an integral part of HFM. In the recent years we have seen many Qawwalis in Hindi Films. The new digital age, technological advances in music instruments have enriched the presentation of Qawwalis. Movie makers have been experimenting by including ‘qawwali song’ or ‘fusion qawwali songs’ in their movies.

In Hindi movies qawwalis are woven with the story topic of the movie. So, we have ‘’romantic qawwalis’, ‘men vs women’, ‘husn aur ishq’, ‘celebrating a festival’, ‘devotional qawwalis’, ‘chor-police’, ‘marriage celebration’, ‘mujrim-munsif’, ‘scoring peanuts over each other’ (Atulogy), ‘nok-jhonk’, ‘teasing each other’, ‘musical competition’, and other types of qawwalis in our movies.

Or it may be a competition of poetry between two groups (read men and women mostly) where ‘qawwalis’ would perfectly fit into the plot of a movie.

In many movies they have been used to keep the suspense intact where actors, actresses would disguise themselves and enter the villain’s den to rescue their partners/friends caught by the villain. Or sometimes the villain will kidnap close relatives of the hero or heroine in the movie and ask for a ‘hefty’ ransom. And the hero/heroine would plan a song or disguise as a ‘musical-troupe’ to enter the ‘villain’s den’ to rescue a ‘child’, ‘relatives’ or a ‘famous scientist’ or a ‘police commissioner’ who would have been kidnaped by the villain or his associates.

To mis-lead the villain the hero/heroine or their friends and well-wishers would sing a qawwali and simultaneously free the innocent ones caught by the villain. Sometimes this would happen just before the climax of the movie.

In our movies we also have qawwalis where we see ‘lawful elements(police, CID) and the unlawful elements(goondas, or burglar, thieves)’ have a ‘qawwali muqaabla’ in “disguise”.

I am not a competent person to write or discuss about the technicalities of Qawwalis. But since I like them very much, I had undertaken this series and have presented some qawwalis from the ‘decade of seventies or 1971-to-1980’.

If we look on the statistics of the qawwalis already posted on the blog till today’s song, we get the following details (which could be of interest to music connoisseurs).

We will revisit the details in the future as and when possible, so till then … 😊)

In this series we have so far listened to the following qawwalis.

For now, we are concluding this series with the today’s qawwali from the ‘1980’ movie ‘Be-reham’.

This is another movie of which the dedication is to ‘All policemen known and unknown who lived for discipline and died for discipline’. That would also be sufficient for all to guess what the movie is all about.

“Be-reham-1980” was directed by R. Jhalani for ‘K.D.S. Films’.

It was produced by K.D. Shorey who also wrote the story of this movie.

Its star cast included Sanjeev Kumar, Mala Sinha, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, I.S. Johar, Kadar Khan, Urmila Bhatt, Keshto Mukherjee, Manmohan, Shetty, Raj Mehra, Rinku Jaiswal, Komila Virk, Viju Khote, Ashok Nag, Gurubachan, C.S. Dubey, Sheel Kumar, Amarjeet, R.S. Chopra, Madhup Sharma, Sudarshan Sethi, Sehgal, Uma Khosla, Vimal Chopra, and Helen in special appearance.

Moushumi Chatterjee, Kamal, Sujata and Dev Kumar make a friendly appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 01.08.1980.

Lyrics of the songs of this movie were written by Verma Malik and Jigar Muradabadi.
Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Here is the list of songs this movie had.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Ik lafz e mohabbat ka adnaa sa fasaana hai Asha Bhonsle, Anup Jalota Jigar Moradabadi
02 Ye saal ki aakhri raat hai Shailendra Singh, Anuradha Paudwal, Chandrani Mukherjee Verma Malik

05 Taqdeer ke kalam se koyi bach naa paayega Mohd Rafi Verma Malik/td>
06 Ham aaj ye kissaa khatm karen Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor Verma Malik

Today’s qawwali happens when the movie is already having some interesting ‘twists and turn’ in its story. I am not going to detail it more to keep intact the interest of those who would like to or have to watch this interesting movie.

I remember when the movie was released one of my classmates had watched it soon after its release and he was full praise for Sanjeev Kumar and others’ performances in this movie.

Sanjeev Kumar was common favourite of all us friends. And in our circle of juniors and seniors we often discussed about his roles, and everybody would have likened his performance in each of his movies then.
We now move to the today’s song.

It is picturised on Moushumi Chatterjee and the actor whom I am unable to identify.

We can see Keshto Mukherjee, Shatrughan Sinha and Reena Roy with many others present in the picturisation of this song.
Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Lyrics are by Verma Malik and music is composed by

Let us now enjoy today’s qawwali watching Moushumi Chatterjee’s charming performance and Keshto Mukherjee’s special antics. 😊

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Anaarbaala”(1961) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by S Balbir, Sudha Malhotra and female chorus. Ramesh Chandra Pandey is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song appears to be a qawwaali. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Aji maana ke bahut hain aap haseen (Anarbala) (1961) Singers-S Balbir, Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Ramesh Chandra Pandey, MD-Bulo C Rani
Female Chorus

Lyrics

aa aa aa
maana
aji mana ke bahut hain aap haseen
dil ko thukraaya karte hain
lekin ham bhi dilwaale,
dil dushman se lagaaya karte hain
hamse hi kadar aapki hai
ho hamse hi aap bigadte hain
kya apne aap ko samjha hai
kyun itana aap akadte hain jee akadte hain
haan aan aan
sun lijiye aeji sarkar, sun lijiye aeji sarkar
agar kuchh aap hain to, agar kuchh aap hain to
kuchh ham bhi hain
sun leeje aeji dildaar
sun leeje aeji dildaar
agar kuchh aap hain to, agar kuchh aap hain to
kuchh ham bhi hain/font>

maana husn pe marne ko, laakhon dildaar machalte hain
lekin kab shama bulaati hai
jalne waale khud jalte hain

ye jalte hain
ye jalte hain

un parwaanon ki hasti kya,
jeene pe jinko naaj nahin
aa aa aaa
ham bhi to mohabbat karte hain
haan
par maut ke hain mohtaaj nahin een een
ho par maut ke hain mohtaaj nahin

sun leeje aeji sarkaar
sun leeje aeji sarkaar
agar kuchh aap hain to
kuchh ham bhi hain

aa aa aa aa
hai shokhi bhi itni ki,
aap khud ko bhagwaan samajh baithe
hai khair hamarre dil ko hi
aap apna makaan samajh baithhe
aabaad ho ya barbaad ho o o
ab ye jaan bhi aapki dualat hai
maashook hai gar bhagwan to
apne aashiq ki badaulat hai
sun leeje aeji dildaar
sun leeje aeji dildaar

agar kuchh aap hain to, agar kuchh aap hain to
kuchh ham bhi hain

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 149 # Qawwalis – 13 #
———————————————–

Today’s song – a qawwali – is from the 1979 movie “Aatish”. Memories of this qawwaali were revived when I was listening to a daily programme on Vividh Bharati. I had earlier shared another song from the same movie. That song too was a result of memories coming alive when I listened to that song on Vividh Bharati. That was in March-2021, and the song was Main nehlaa thhi bas nehlaa ….

When I listened to this ‘qawwali’ I liked it because of its ‘catchy’ tune. The picturisation of this ‘qawwali’ suggests that it takes place in the movie in the ‘villain’s den’ where Neetu Singh is in double role. One of the two disguised persons trying to help is Jeetendra I guess. Also seen in the picturisation of the song are Mukri, Dheeraj Kumar, Madan Puri, Master Raju, and many others.

“Aatish-1979” was directed by Ambarish Sangal for ‘M.K. Enterprises, Bombay’. It had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Rinku, Dheeraj, Leena Das, Om Shivpuri, Mukri, Mumtaz Begam, Master Raju, Nirupa Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar (in special appearance), Brahm Bharadwaj, Subhash Kanwal, Kamal Deep, Ranveer Raj, Chandru, Kishan, Ashok Saxena, Raj Kumar, Ram Narayan, and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.02.1979.

There were six songs in this movie written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).
