(A tribute to Vijay Anand – The Director)
——————————————–

Today 22nd Janunary’202 is the eighty-nineth birth anniversary of Vijay Anand. He was born on 22nd January’1934 and passed away on 23rd February’2004.

Vijay Anand was one of the greatest director and editor of Hindi Cinema. He also produced movies, acted in movies, wrote movies and even wrote lyrics.

Vijay Anand left behind his legacy of movies that are called ‘Vijay Anand movies’ that would be remembered forever and will always be a part of Hindi Cinema History. He has left behind an indelible mark of his ‘art and craftsmanship’ in the movies he has directed and /or edited or both.

I am a big fan of Vijay Anand. I had earlier presented a brief post on him on the blog.

Our seniors on the blog and especially Shri Sudhir ji have written passionate posts on Vijay Anand on the blog. I am reproducing a brief about Vijay Anand that Shri Sudhir ji had mentioned in this post.

Really very few artists and film makers in the industry have been as versatile as Vijay Anand has been. Active in the industry since the early 1950s, Vijay is the youngest of the three Anand brothers. He did have an advantage of two elder siblings, Chetan Anand and Dev Anand, having made a place for themselves in the industry, when he also decided to take the plunge. And under the umbrella of his illustrious seniors, he had the opportunity to delve and develop a multi-faceted career. In a career that spans more than five decades, Vijay Anand, or Goldie as he was known to his friends, made his mark as a screenplay and dialogue writer, as a director, as a producer, as an editor, and as an actor. His works are limited, given the span of his career, but the quality of his work speaks for itself. The films he has directed are outstanding, and he is acknowledged as the best director for picturization of songs, in the Indian film industry. In this aspect of film making, which is supremely significant given the musical nature of Indian cinema, he is without a peer.

Our Shri Sadanand ji had mentioned this while writing about Vijay Anand in this post:-.

This song is our tribute to Vijay Anand whose birth day falls on January 22nd. That he was a talented person from a very young age can be gauged by the fact that at the age of 16, he became assistant director in ‘Afsar’ (1950). Due to a sudden illness of Chetan Anand, who directed the film ‘Funtoosh’ (1954), Vijay Anand directed a song ‘hey meri topi palat ke aa’ in the film at the age of 20. At the age of 23, he scripted and directed a box office hit ‘Nau Do Gyarah’ (1957).

There is one detailed post on Vijay Anand written by Shri Sudhir ji with the song ‘andhi parja andha raja takey ser bhaaji takey ser khaaja’ presented on the blog on 22nd Jaunary’2018 as a tribute to Vijay Anand on his birth anniversary.

In this post on the birth anniversary of Vijay Anand we today pay our tributes to him and listen to a song from one of the movies. He produced, directed, wrote, edited and also wrote three out of the seven songs in this movie.

We are all aware that the movies by ‘Navketans’ always had good music and they are known for their music as well. If one browse this blog and check the list of movies which are directed by Vijay Anand one can see that almost all of them have been covered with all of their songs on the blog or as we say they have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog, except the surprise which is the today’s movie.

Today’s movie is ‘Chhupaa Rustom-1973’.

Here is a brief about this movie mentioned by Shri Sudhir ji in his post on the blog.

‘Chhupa Rustom’ (1973) is a crime thriller from the house of Navketan. Produced by Dev Anand, the film is directed by Vijay Anand. It is for this film that Goldie shares the credits for song writing with Neeraj. The film is loosely based on the action thriller novel ‘Fear Is The Key’ by the British author Alistair MacLean. The acting credits are impressive and include Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Vijay Anand, Bindu, Prem Chopra, Ajit, Sajjan, Veena, Premnath, AK Hangal, Rashid Khan, Shyam Kumar, Sudhir, Uma Dutt, Kaamraan, Nawab, and many more. The music composition is by SD Burman.
The storyline revolves around a treasure city of gold that is discovered under the glaciers of Himalayas by an archaeologist, played by AK Hangal. The information about the probable existence of such a treasure is also with a group of gangsters led by Ajit. Weather conditions go bad, Hangal is separated from his team and lands up at the camp of gangsters. Recognizing him, the gangsters capture him. He is tortured, but refuses to give the location information to Ajit. Meanwhile, Dev Anand, who is the son of Hangal, begins to search for his father, after losing contact with him. He is actually a police officer, and Vijay Anand is an associate. The storyline follows their efforts to track his father. The trail takes them to the wedding of Hema Malini, daughter of a rich man (Sajjan). The awkward alliance is with Prem Chopra, son of Ajit, for reasons of business coercion. Dev and his team kidnap Hema Malini, and get Ajit and his henchmen after them. The ruse is to somehow get the gangsters interested in Dev Anand, as the only person who can decipher the secret diary of Hangal, who is in the Ajit’s custody. After more machinations, finally Dev Anand leads Ajit and Prem Chopra to the treasure, only to trap them in the underground vault, and extract their confessions under the fear of death.

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my father when was a child. I do not remember anything about this movie except the today’s song (which is a qawwali) of which the ‘mukhda’ has always been in my memory may be it has been imbibed on my mind since years. And then the other song which I am familiar is from this movie is of course ‘dheere se jaana khatiyan mein’.

Though during all these years I do not remember to have attentively listened to any songs of this movie and that is why when I checked and found that lyrics for the remaining songs of this movie have been lying shared by Prakash ji.

And what a song this is, rather a ‘qawwali’ penned by none other than Neeraj ji, composed by S.D. Burman and sung by Manna Dey.

The thrill of listening and watching this ‘qawwali’ cannot be explained in words.
Just enjoy it!!!

Dev Anand is performing on screen and we can see Sajjan, Hema Malini, Ajit, Prem Chopra and others in the picturisation of this song.

We remember Vijay Anand and pay our tributes to the DIRECTOR in him!!!

Today’s song is from the film Son of Alibaba-1955.

I would like to pay my humble respects to the unique, incomparable and extraordinary imagination of the Indian filmmakers in giving the most innovative titles to their films ! In the book of Arabian Nights there are only characters like Sindbad, Aladdin, Alibaba etc. Nowhere in the book there is a mention of their sons or daughters or other close relatives. But our Indian filmmakers have very benevalently provided them with children and thus were the films made like Aladdin ka beta-1955, Aladdin Laila-1941/55, Aladdin ki Beti-1949, Daughter of Sindbad-1958.

Not only this, they even went to the extent of making a Get-Together of these characters in the film Sindbad, Alibaba and Aladdin-1965. What is more interesting is that the filmmakers generously gifted sons and daughters to other fictional heroes too in films like Son of Dracula-2005, Son of Hatimtai-1945/65, Son of Hercules-1964, Son of Sinbad-1958, Son of zambo-1939, Zimbo ka beta-1966 etc. So, no wonder that there was a Son of Alibaba in 1955. Hats off to these imaginative creatures of God !

On one side these were the merry makers giving choicest titles to their films as wished and on the other side were people who had never ever dreamt to pursue a film acting career,but the Destiny made them do it ! Examples are – Ashok Kumar joined Bombay Talkies as a Laboratory technician but was forced to become an actor and my God, what an actor he became ! Guru Dutt had learned dance in the Academy of famous dancer Uday Shankar, at Almora in Himachal Pradesh, joined Prabhat Films as a Choreographer,but fate made him an actor and a Director. Kanhaiyalal, brother of actor Sankata Prasad, joined Sagar movietone to become a Lyricist, but became a well known character actor. Motilal casually stood in a crowd to watch a film shooting and was offered a film role. So, instead of joining the Navy, he became a film Hero. Geeta Dutt was singing a Bhajan for her father in her home, when Hanuman Prasad, MD heard her and she became a famous playback singer. There are many such examples.

It’s not only the plans going astray unexpectedly, even the successful actors wished something ardently and were lucky to see their wishes fulfilled by destiny when they had lost the hopes. I can quote at least 2 examples here of famous actors. The first one is of Dev Anand.After starting a career of acting with film ” Hum ek hain” made by Prabhat, within next 5 years he became a popular and successful star. For a long time, he had dreamt of working with actress Snehprabha Pradhan. He had high respect and attraction for her and was keen to do a film with her. But after 1949, she had almost stopped working in films. In 1950 Dev worked with Nargis in the film ‘ Khel ‘. The film was a huge flop. Dev could not afford flops in the initial phase of his career, so he decided never to work again with Nargis. Same year, the famous Director Gajanan Jagirdar came to Dev and offered him a film ‘Birha ki Raat’. Dev almost accepted the film, till he came to know that the heroine was Nargis. He flatly refused the film. Jagirdar was upset. He tried various ways but Dev did not budge. Finally, Jagirdar said,” I will come again after 2 days. Just rethink about it. I am ready to do anything you want, but you must do this film.”

Dev started thinking. The day when Jagirdar came, Dev told him, ” If you can bring Snehprabha Pradhan to work in this film, I will do this film.” Jagirdar was thoughtful but said, ‘ Let me try ‘. He came back with the good news that Snehprabha was ready to work in this film. Dev accepted the film. A long cherished dream was fulfilled and he worked with his dreamgirl. (Unfortunately this film also flopped terribly and Dev never worked with Nargis in his life again. In an interview Dev had said ” When I did these 2 films with Nargis,they were abysmal failures.No matter how tunefully Nargis asked the audience to stay, by Interval the theatres were empty” ).

The other example is of Master Bhagwan and C.Ramchandra. Both of them were great fans of actor Master Vitthal. He was one of the most handsome actors of silent and early talkie films. He was treated by Bhagwan as his Idol in stunt films. Both wanted to work with Master Vitthal in atleast one film, but by 1945, Master Vitthal was ready to shift to Kolhapur to work only in Marathi films. Bhagwan and CR became panicky. Hurriedly, Master Bhagwan went to Master Vithal and requested him to work in his new film. Surprisingly, the offer was accepted by Vitthal and these both friends were in the seventh heaven ! Thus, Master Vitthal worked in the film ” Naghma E Sahra”-1945 and their dreams were fulfilled. CR gave the music and also playback to Master Vitthal in this film.

The purpose of telling you all this is that the fulfilment of intense desire was also in the case of a singer in today’s film “Son of Alibaba”-1955. The singer – Shaminder was also an artiste who joined Hindi films to fulfil his cherished dream of singing a duet with Lata Mangeshkar in his lifetime. This desire became an obsession and after singing with Lata in a Punjabi film “Vanjara”-1954, he finally sang with Lata, a duet in a Hindi film-“Pilpili Saheb”-1954. Here is his story….

Shaminder( also known as Bhai Shaminder Singh) born in 1930/31, belonged to a wealthy landlord sikh family in Muktsar Sahib district of Punjab. It is said that the family owned almost half of the village where they stayed. Since his childhood, he was fond of music. He was a fan of Mohammed Rafi and Talat Mehmood whose songs he would listen to on the radio for hours and sing in sync with their songs. He adored Lata Mangeshkar as a Goddess. As he grew up, singing became his hobby and he could sing songs in the style of Rafi and Talat at ease.

As I said earlier, singing a duet song with Lata Mangeshkar was his obsession and to achieve his goal, he left his village for Bombay (Mumbai) some time in 1953 and met Sardul Kwatra, who was an upcoming music director. Sardul found that Shaminder had the quality of a professional playback singer. He felt that there was a man who could sing in a voice which had a blend of Rafi and Talat. So he decided to use him as a playback singer for songs in his Punjabi film ‘Vanjara’ (1954) which was being produced by Sardul’s family. In this film, there was a duet song which he was planning to get Shamshad Begum to sing with Shaminder. However, Shaminder was bent upon singing this song with Lata Mangeshkar. To fulfill his obsession, he offered a carrot to Sardul by way of financing his Punjabi film. This trick worked with Sardul. I had read elsewhere that Sardul Kwatra was a charming person especially among women folks. Probably with his charm, he must have persuaded Lata Mangeshkar to sing a Punjabi song with a newcomer Shaminder. Fortunately for Shaminder, not only this duet song but all songs sungs by him in this film became hits with the masses of Punjab.

Having tasted success, Shaminder was now interested in singing in Hindi films and again his obsession was singing a duet with Lata Mangeshkar. He got the chance to sing with her in the film ‘Pilpili Saheb’ (1954). It is said that he also got a chance to sing with Asha Bhonsle in some other films but I could not locate any such song on YT. In any case, he did get the chance to sing a song with Geeta Dutt in the film ‘Son of Alibaba’ (1954). I find that he sang almost all of his Hindi film songs under the baton of Sardul Kwatra. Later, Mohinder also took him as a playback singer for Punjabi films.

Having fulfilled his obsession to sing with Lata Mangeshkar, he was no longer very much interested in playback singing. In all, he sang only 15 Hindi songs in 8 films, namely Pilpili Saheb-54, Pensioner-54, Tees Maar Khan-55, Son of Alibaba-55, Jalwa-55, Ghar ghar mein diwali-55, Kala Chashma-62 and finally Mera Desh mera Dharam-73. By late 50s/early 60s, he turned to acting in Punjabi and Hindi films. In Punjabi films he mostly acted in lead roles while in Hindi films, he got side roles in a few films like ‘Aas Ka Panchhi’-1961, ‘Anpadh’ -1962, Bank Robbery-1969 and Sultana Daku-1972. He acted mainly in Punjabi films.
He passed away some time in the early 90s.

Today’s song is a qawwaali sung by Shaminder and Rafi. Enjoy….

Today’s song is an ‘all female qawwaali song’ from the 1964 movie ‘Jaadui Angoothi’.

So far, I have been presenting qawwaalis from the decade of seventies on the blog. For a change today, I am presenting this one from the decade of sixties. In fact, today’s song was lying with me since long and Initially I sent only the audio of this song (the only vailable version at that time). But now the movie as well as the video of this songs has become available online.

‘Jaadui Angoothi’ of 1964 alias ‘Magic Ring’ was directed by AM Khan for AM Khan Productions, Bombay’. It had Chitra, Manhar Desai, Sheri, Krishna Kumari, SK Shaam, Anil Kashmiri, Jilani, Uma Khosla, Violet, Ameerbai Karnataki, Sujata, Saroj, Sabina, Balwant Sharma, Kallan, Bagla, Chaman, Deva Kumari, Kanta Kumari, Polson and others.

This movie had five songs composed by Suresh Kumar. Lyrics were written by Anjaan and Zafar Rahi. Here is the list of songs of this movie.

Sl No Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 O Sanan Nanana Hawaa Lehraaye Asha Bhonsle 08.09.2020
02 Kahaan Nazar Takraayi Zafar Rahi Mahendra Kapoor 09.01.2014
03 Zamaane Ke Hazaaron Gham…Bujh Gaya Dil Ka Diyaa Zafar Rahi Subir Sen 21.05.2022
04 Ude Nainon Se Gulaal Anjaan Kamal Barot, Mahendra Kapoor
05 Dam Bhar Hai Judaa, To Haal Hai Ye… Not mentioned

HFGK mentions Anjaan and Zafar Rahi for one song each on the movie details page of this movie and in ‘Addenda’ it further mentions Zafar Rahi as lyricist for song number three. The songwriter for song nos. 1 and 5 are not specifically identified. Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Minoo Purshottam, Sulochana Chavhan, Subir Sen and Kamal Barot have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Munshi Nayaab, and dialogues were written by AK Khan. Editing of this movie was done by GG Patil and he was assisted by Rohi Das.

As mentioned in the above table three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier. Today’s song is the fourth song of this movie to be presented on the blog.

Singers’ name for the today’s song is not mentioned in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970). Also, I am unable to identify the actresses who are performing this song on screen. I would request knowledgeable readers to help in identifying the actresses lip-syncing this song. The lady sitting on the throne is most likely Chitra.

While listening to this song when it ends it seems that it is not a full version of this song, but in the movie (available online) also only this much part is available for this song.

Let us now enjoy oday’s song. 

Dam bhar hain judaa to haal hai ye. . .

—————————————

‘Qawwali songs’ have been an integral part of Hindi Film Music and there have been many memorable and immortal ‘qawwalis’ that we have enjoyed that Hindi Film Movies and Music have produced.

Since my childhood I have been very fascinated by ‘Qawwali’ songs and after coming into contact with this blog I have shared many ‘Qawwalis’ too.
I have also presented a series of ‘Qawwalis’ from the ‘seventies’ wherein I presented fourteen ‘qawwali’ songs.

I wrapped up this series on 10.10.2021 with this post ‘ham aaj ye kissa khatm karen’.

So far, eight more ‘qawwalis’ have been presented on the blog after this post of 10.10.2021.

There are still many ‘qawwali’ songs yet to be covered on the blog. I wish we should have regular posts coming with ‘qawwalis’ as it is always enjoyable and interesting to listen and watch to them.

Hence, I am taking this series as ‘Part-2’ on ‘qawwalis’ with a devotional ‘qawwali’ today. It is from the ‘1976’ movie ‘Nehle Pe Dehlaa’.

Incidentally the qawwali in the first post of the Part-1 series of Qawwalis was also from a ‘1976’ movie ‘Noor E Ilaahi’ ( badaa lutff thhaa jab qunwaare thhe ham tum).

Today’s movie ‘Nehle Pe Dehlaa-1976’ was produced by Sunil Dutt for his own banner ‘Ajanta Arts, Bombay’.
It was directed by Raj Khosla.

The cast of this film had Sunil Dutt, Saira Banu, Vinod Khanna, Bindu, Ranjeet, Premnath, Om Prakash (Special Appearance), Kamini Kaushal, Anwar Hussain, Trilok Kapoor, Tiwari, Dev Kumar (Guest appearance), Bharat Bhushan, Keshav Rana, Romeo, Shiv Kumar, Vikas Anand, Prem Kumar, Hercules, Daljit Rao, Pahalwan, Dhanraj, Vivek, Sonu, Bittu, Ejaz, Jilani, Ramesh and others.

Screenplay of this film was written by K.K. Shukla and dialogues were written by Satish Bhatnagar.

The Censor Board passed this film on 30.03.1976.

Here is a brief about this movie (which I had mentioned in my post with the song ‘main choron ki raani hoon’ from this movie on 31.05.2016)…

Harish (Bharat Bhushan (spelled as ‘Bharat Booshan’ in the titles of the movie) and Khan Sahab (Trilok Kapoor) are good friends and both work in Police.
Khan Sahab is SP and senior to Harish.

Bharat Bhushan has two sons.

Mangal (Om Prakash) is Bharat Bhushan’s driver. He has a daughter Bhindi (bin Maa ki bachchi).
His daughter and the elder son of the Inspector are ‘natural’ 🙂 friends.

On an Eid day Bharat Bhushan and his family, his wife Kamla (Kamini Kaushal) and two sons along with Om Prakash and his daughter, arrive at Trilok Kapoor’s house to greet him on the Eid day.

Trilok Kapoor has an urgent call and a tip-off about the ‘General’ the kingpin of the smugglers (jiske peecchhe Police barson se lagi huyi hai), and so he is just stepping out when Bharat Bhushan intervenes and offers him to enjoy the festival and taking the responsibility to nab the smugglers on his own.

Kopa Ka Baana (Copa-ca-bana 🙂 !!!)

Premnath in his typical villain avatar uttering, screaming, shouting ‘Kopaa Ka Baana’ (or ‘Copacabana’) all the film, manages to escape from the spot, but his ‘red diary’ falls there at the Beach (I wonder if this is the same diary 🙂 that was later used in the film ‘Don’ of Amitabh) which has the contact numbers and names of all the ‘whose who’ of the ‘under-world’. 🙂 )

To get hold of this diary Premnath plans to kidnap Bharat Bhushan’s children while Om Prakash is driving them to school.

Kopa Kaa Baana aa

Diary tumhaare paas aur bachche hamaare paas, ab farmaaiye aapka kya prrograamme ( 🙂 ) hai

Premnath with his aide Anwar Hussain makes a ‘smart’ move and reach Bharat Bhushan’s place to get hold of the ‘red diary’ and later shots Bharat Bhushan, so that he does not disclose the names and other details that he must have memorized from the ‘diary’.

He also injured Kamini Kaushal who loses her sight (to regain it at the end of the film) and before leaving they set the house on fire.
At the ‘villain’s den’ Elder of the two children succeeds in running away from the ‘gang members’ injuring –Dev Kumar (one of them).
He grows into Sunil (Sunil Dutt) and becomes a CID Officer under SP-Khan Sahab (Trilok Kapoor).

Meanwhile, Premnath instructed his accomplices to shoot both children. Karim (Tiwari) who receives the order on the phone has a change of heart and also this child clings onto his legs (our dear baby) starts crying while the soft-hearted Tiwari (Karim) assures him ‘haan bete tujhe Daddy milega, zaroor milega, zaroor milega,
Aaj se main tera Daddy!

This boy is our Master Bitttoo who grows up into Vinod Khanna and becomes a ‘chor.’
On the other side Police arrests Om Prakash in doubt of helping the ‘smugglers’ in kidnapping of the Inspector’s children.
Nobody heeds to his requests as some money is also recovered from his home.

Insaan paise ke liye kitna gir sakta hai

And finally, this poor guy could not prove his innocence and is sent to jail – ‘das saal qaid-e-ba-mashakkat’…

So, from here the film takes-off …

‘Two brothers getting separated, a father and a daughter getting separated, a mother loses her sight’ – all lost here – How they find each other is the story!!

“Nehle Pe Dehlaa-1976” has five songs.

Sr.no Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Main choron ki raani hoon Asha Bhonsle 31.05.2016
02 Saawan ka mahina aa gaya Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 23.08.2012
03 Sun le tu binti meri Haaji Ali Aziz Nazaan, chorus
04 Logon ki zubaan par apna naam hai pehla Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey
05 Maashooq apne shabaab mein Lata Mangeshkar

Four songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and one by Farooq Qaisar (qawwali). Music was composed by R.D. Burman.
Qawwaali is sung by Aziz Nazaan who also composed it (as per HFGK).

Aziz Nazaan, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, and Manna Dey gave their voices to the songs.
Mukesh’s name is also there in the singers list of the films, however so far as I am aware there is no Mukesh song in this film and his voice is not there in any of the released songs of this film.

I think only two songs from this movie were mostly liked and heard were ‘saawan ka mahina aa gaya’ (which is there in my list of ‘favorite songs of the seventies’) and the other one was title song i.e., ‘logon ki zubaan pe apna naam hai pehla’.

None of the songs from this film make it to the ‘annual list’ of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year.

Two songs from this film have been posted earlier on the blog as mentioned in the above table of ‘list of songs’ from this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Aziz Nazaan who is also the composer of this song. Lyrics are by Farooque Kaiser.
I am unable to identify the actor lip-syncing the song on the screen. Also seen in the picturization of this song are Vinod Khanna, Kamini Kaushal and Sunil Dutt and others.

(It seems that the shooting of this song was done at the shrine of Haaji Ali in Mumbai).

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Hullo Atuldom

Todays’ song is from a forgotten movie of the late 1970s “Bagula Bhagat” (1979). It was directed by Harmesh Malhotra and produced by Gullu Sippy. It had a cast of Ashok Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Shabana Azmi, Kamini Kaushal, Padma Khanna, Mehmood Jr. etc. I think I saw a short video of the movie online somewhere and think I spied Anwar Hussain and Goga Kapoor as his henchman. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and songs written by Anjaan. Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Amit Kumar and Asha Bhonsle as playback singers. The movie was written by Subhash Ghai and Bhalla.

I have no clue about the story of the movie, date of release etc. I landed on this movie in my quest for a song lip-synced by Ashok Kumar and sung by Kishore Kumar. I found the video of the movie on YouTube which is uploaded in three parts. It begins with a convict’s failed attempt at jumping a prison. Shatrughan Sinha plays a smart-alec who does small odd jobs of helping smugglers transport their illicit stuff for small remunerations. He is assigned a task by Anwar Hussain to help someone escape from prison.

The song with this post is when Shatru lands in prison to finish the assignment given and sees Ashok Kumar being hailed as a prisoner who is well known amongst inmates. Kishore Kumar is the voice for his brother Ashok Kumar and Amit Kumar sings for Shatru.

The song reminds of ‘do bechaare bina sahare’, from Victoria No. 203. There was a period in the 70s when we had many such Kishore Kumar- Ashok Kumar songs meaning Kishoreda singing for Dada Moni. And my hope is that we don’t run out of such songs as they are best to remember the brothers on their anniversaries. 13th October is Dada Moni Ashok Kumar’s birth anniversay and Kishoreda’s death anniversary. This pair of brothers have been responsible for entertaining audiences from the 30s when Dada Moni stepped into Bombay Talkies as lab assistant. And after a few years he stepped in front of the camera it is a different matter that he had not hankered after that career. He was busy in front of the screen for almost six decades.

Kishoreda, Dada Moni’s youngest brother, began his career as a chorus singer at Bombay Talkies and got his first independent break in 1948 with “Ziddi”. His first screen appearance may have been in 1946 “Shikari” which starred his older brother but he played the lead for the first time in 1951. He has more discography to his name compared to filmography. But this was one entertaining family where their sister was married to a producer, their other brother was also an actor. Amit Kumar followed his dad of being a singer/actor and Preethi Ganguly also went on to become an actor. Dada Moni’s granddaughter is actress Anuradha Patel, son-in-law was Deven Verma. So much talent in one family.

Thinking of the Ganguly brothers Ashok Kumar and Kishore Kumar .

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 …

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
14819 Pam para rum pum 2 January 2019 Kishore Kumar

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.

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

kya taareef karoon in haseenon ki
milte nahin alfaaz
ek haseen dhokha hota hai
inka har andaaz

em>ke kya taareef karoon in haseenon ki
milte nahin alfaaz
ek haseen dhokha hota hai
inka har andaaz

aa aa aa aa aa
dhokhe ko bhi dhokha de den
aise dhokhebaaz
jinse khaaya inse dhokha
wohi jaane ae ae ye raag

husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
yaar ho bhi gaye to ye
wafaadar nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
nahin hote nahin hote nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain

ye phoolon ki jo fitrat hai
haseenon ki wo aadat hai
haseenon ki wo aadat hai
ye phoolon ki wo fitrat hai
sabhi se muskuraate hain
sabhi se muskuraate hain
sitaaron ki to aadat hai
nazar sab se ladaate hain
nazar sab se ladaate hain
kisi bhi ek ka hona nahin aata
haseenon ko diya patthar ka dil
kudrat ne saare naazneenon ko
haan saare naazneenon ko
haan saare naazneenon ko

aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
apne haathon se rab ne sanwaara
de diya hai inhen husn saara
de diya hai inhen husn saara
wo kashish di ke hoti nahin kam
inka deewaana hai saara aalam
inka deewaana hai sara aalam
rang aur noor se bhar diya hai
karam kudrat ne in par kiya hai
karam kudrat ne in par kiya hai
karam kudrat ne in par kiya hai

ek murawwat na di
ek mohabbat na di
aur baaki to sab kuchh diya hai
aur baaki to sab kuchh diya hai
aur baaki to sab kuchh diya hai

aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
yaar ho bhi gaye to ye
wafaadaar nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
nahin hote nahin hote nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain

usool inka nahin koi
karen jo bhi wo thhoda hai
karen jo bhi wo thhoda hai
koi yaadon mein rehta hai
kisi se naam joda hai
kisi se naam joda hai
ye apne ban ke bhi
ye to raha karte hain begaane
khuda inko na pahchaana
to banda kaise pehchaane
to banda kaise pehchaane
to banda kaise pehchaane

aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa
gair ki baanhon mein jhool jaayen
saath barson ko yoon bhool jaayen
saath barson ka yoon bhool jaayen
ye iraade badalte hain kaise
jaise mausam badalta hai waise
jaise mausam badalta hai waise
inki ulfat mein har pal andesha
nahin rehte kisi ke hamesha
nahin rehte kisi ke hamesha
nahin rehte kisi ke hamesha

haseen jitna hai jo
bewafa utna wo
bewafaai haseenon ka pesha
bewafaai haseenon ka pesha
bewafaai haseenon ka pesha

aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
yaar ho bhi gaye to
ye wafaadaar nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
nahin hote nahin hote nahin hote hain
husn waale kisi ke yaar nahin hote hain
