Today’s song is from the film ‘Tamanna’ (1942).

This was a film made by Laxmi Productions, Bombay. It was directed by Phani Mujumdar and for songs written by SK Kalla, the music was provided by India’s first blind music director KC Dey. In later years there were two more blind MDs. One was Manoharlal Sonik – of the Sonik-Omi duo of MDs and the other was Ravindra Jain. This film was released on 20-6-1942 at the Royal Opera House theater in Bombay.

Film ‘Tamanna’ was an ordinary film, but it became famous afterwards, when it became known that the famous singer Manna Dey had made his debut as a Playback singer in Hindi through this film. However, besides this point, there were few more matters which made this film a special film. In addition to being the debut film for Manna Dey, it was also the debut film for the Banner-Laxmi Productions. Further, it was the first film of its heroine Leela Desai, in the Bombay film world.

People who write on old songs and old films generally write about actors, actresses, directors, lyricists, MDs, singers and also occasionally on the arrangers and the cinematographers. But very rarely, something is written about a producer. Actually it is the producer who conceives the idea of the film, who arranges the finances for the film, who selects a team of director, MD and the cast of the film, still he is not paid much attention. It is because of the producer, an artiste can make debut or an MD gets praise for his music etc, but the producer remains unsung.

Today, we will talk about an enterprising producer of film ‘Tamanna’ who had made several well known films, gave opportunities to many actors, directors and MDs. His name is Chimanlal Trivedi.

Chimanlal Trivedi, was one of the major filmmakers of the 30s and the 40s decades. He was more a producer businessman than a director. While he directed hardly 7 films, he produced close to 50 films – all having A grade actors, directors and composers !

Born on 19-3-1909 at a village near Anand in Gujarat he was from a Brahmin family. He did his schooling in Ahmedabad and technical graduation from Baroda. Being an expert in weaving, he took up a job as a weaving master in Calcutta. Fond of writing, he started writing dramas, which were staged in Bengal and Gujarat. He was attracted towards cinema and tried some work in New Theaters. Knowing that the real playing field is Bombay he reached there. He wrote stories for the film ‘Chevrolet’ (1936) and ‘Danger Signal’ (1937) for Mohan Pictures.

He established his own production company CIRCO (Cine Industries Recording Company) in 1937. By 1943, he had made 12 films. He preferred not to direct his films, but appointed directors like Mohan Sinha for ‘Laxmi’ (1940), ‘Anuradha’ (1940) and ‘Vanmala’ (1941), Balwant Bhatt for ‘Suhag’ (1940) and ‘Madhusudan’ (1941), AR Kardar for ‘Swami’ (1941) and ‘Nai Duniya’ (1942) and Debaki Bose for ‘Apna Ghar’ (1942).

He had the art of getting the most popular stars for his films like, Prithviraj Kapoor, Chandramohan, Durga Khote, Mazhar khan, Bibbo, Surendra, Jairaj, Sitara, Jeevan, Yaqub, Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Vishnupant Pagnis, Leela Desai, Pahadi Sanyal, Shanta Apte and many others. Even big directors like Debki Bose, Nitin Bose, Kardar, Mohan Sinha, Sarvottam Badami, Nandlal Jaswantlal, Profull Roy, Sudhir Sen, RS Chaudhary, Phani Majumdar, Balwant Bhatt etc. worked for him. From Prabhat he brought Shanta Apte for Rs. 1,000 pm, and also Chandramohan, Pagnis and Mazhar Khan. His friend Chandulal Shah followed his way and brought KL Saigal from New Theaters !

CL Trivedi was an expert in gathering funds for his films. After CIRCO at Parel, he started Laxmi Productions at Andheri, in 1942. He made ‘Mera Gaon’, ‘Sharafat’, ‘Bhagya Laxmi’, ‘Kadambari’, ‘Tamanna’, ‘Inkaar’, ‘Mohabbat’, ‘Miss Devi’ etc. In 1951, it was Supreme Pictures, then Trivedi Productions in 1952, Kala Kendra in 1953 and with Chitra Bharati in 1954, he made 13 films upto 1961. Top composers like Timir Baran, Ashok Ghosh, Rafiq Gaznavi, KC Dey, Saraswati Devi, Husnlal-Bhagatram and Naushad gave music to his films.

In the end, he turned to stage and started Abhinay Bharati. He staged many dramas in Bombay and Gujarat. Chimanlal always went for big names. He had close relations with Nehru, Menon, Morarji Desai, and other national leaders. His wife Kantaben was a leader herself. Chimanlal Trivedi died on 25-11-1973. His wife, 3 sons and a daughter settled in the USA.

It may be a coincidence, but Gujarati businessmen like Chimanlal Trivedi, Chimanlal Desai, Chimanlal Luhar, Chaturbhuj Doshi, Chimankant Desai, Chunibhai Desai and Chandulal Shah made sizable contribution to Hindi cinema in the first 20 years of the Talkie era. All names started with ‘CH’ ( ? ) !

[Author’s Note: Thanks to Harish Raghuwanshi ji for his book “बॉलिवूडमा गुजरातीयो” in Gujarati, Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, muVyz and my notes.]

This was also the first film in Bombay for the film’s heroine Leela Desai, a famous and well known name in Bengal made films, till then. She was especially invited by Chimanlal Trivedi for this film. Later she did many of his and others’ films in Bombay. Trivedi had also called 7 different technicians from Calcutta for this film, according to Baburao Patel – editor of Film India in its June 1942 issue. This was to make the film technically superior quality. These technicians did it, but the film had a very weak story. Actually, in those days it was the first film on ‘Village Uplift and Cottage Industry’ – a favorite topic for speeches of Gandhi ji. The story was built around ‘a typically Bengali idea of Platonic Love’, seen in many earlier New Theaters films from Calcutta.

Leela Desai was cast opposite Jairaj. They fall in love. She is very rich, but will get her wealth only after marriage. Jairaj works in a company on a high post. He spends half his salary on research and half on village development. Due to a misunderstanding, on her offering money for Jairaj’s work, they separate. Leela marries Karan Dewan to get the money. She anonymously gives that money to Jairaj for his project. Karan Dewan comes to know the entire story and magnanimously divorces Leela. Jairaj and Leela get married.

Leela Desai was the daughter of Dr. Umedbhai Lalbhai Desai-a Gujarati and his wife Satyabala Devi – a Bengali from Bihar, who was a famous and prominent singer of the 1930s. Leela Desai was born on 1-1-1909 in Newark, New Jersey, America, where her parents had gone for a 3 year work trip. She grew up in India. She learnt dancing from Amla Devi (who married Uday shanker), as well as from Lachhu Maharaj and Sohan lal. She also learnt music at Morris College, Lucknow.

Leela Desai was the 4th of the 5 children born to Dr Umedram Desai from Gujarat and Satybala Devi, daughter of a Bengali landlord settled in Bihar. It was a second marriage for both of them as Satyabala Devi lost her husband during childhood while Dr Umedram Desai got married to his first wife in his childhood through whom he had two sons. Later, Dr Umedram Desai married Gunobati Mitter, a Bengali Christian, for the third time with whom he had 6 children. Before her marriage, Gunobati Mitter worked as a tutor for the children of Dr Umedram Desai and Satyabala Devi in Rampur. So apart from her own 4 siblings, Leela Desai had 8 step brothers/sisters.

Leela Desai was trained in the Bhatkhande Music Institute established in Lucknow in 1926. It has played a vital role in training generations of performing artistes, dedicated gurus and gifted composers. Lucknow has contributed music directors, (like Naushad, Madan Mohan, Roshan), actors and actresses (like Kumar, Iftekhar, Akhtari Bai, Bina Rai, Yashodhara Katju, Swaranlata), singers (Talat Mahmud, Anup Jalota, Dilraj Kaur, Krishna Kalle), writers (like Amritlal Nagar, Bhagawati Sharan Verma, Achala Nagar), lyricists and dancers. Lachhu Maharaj was a very successful choreographer for many films. Pahadi Sanyal, Leela Desai and Kamlesh Kumari of New Theaters at Calcutta were all trained here.

In one of her stage performances in Lucknow, NT’s Director Hem Chander saw her and invited her to Calcutta for work in films. She worked in the film ‘President’ (1937) as the sister of Kamlesh Kumari, opposite Saigal. It was followed by ‘Vidyapati’ (1937), ‘Dushman’ (1938), ‘Kapaal Kundala’ (1939) and ‘Nartaki’ (1940). She also did ‘Adarsh Mahila’ (1937) with Ideal Film company.

Leela Desai had been invited by the students of the Intermediate College in 1941. Bangalore had the distinction of holding festivals of films made by New Theaters and Prabhat Film Co.

BN Sircar’s empire introduced personalities of the stature of PC Barua, Bimal Roy, Debaki Bose, Leela Desai, Phani Majumdar, Timir Baran, Uma Shashi, Nitin Bose, KL Saigal, Pankaj Mullick, Nemo, Sisir Kumar Bhaduri and Jamuna, all of whom later earned all India fame, under the banner of New Theaters. Among his technical achievements were the bringing of sound to Calcutta for Bengali films, and the introduction of the playback system. The elephant logo of New Theaters acted as a magnet to draw crowds throughout the country.

Chimanlal Trivedi brought her to Bombay to act opposite Jairaj in the film ‘Tamanna’. She acted in 5 films of Chimanlal Trivedi. After ‘Tamanna’, Leela Desai acted in films like ‘Sharafat’, ‘Paraya Dhan’, ‘Nagad Narayan’, ‘Inkaar’, ‘Mujrim’, ‘Miss Devi’, ‘Kaliyan’, ‘Meghdoot’, ‘Maharani Minal Devi’, ‘Magadhraj’, ‘Kamla’, ‘Dev Kanya’, ‘Soorat’ and last film ‘Geet Govind’ (1947).

She acted opposite leading actors like KL Saigal, Najmul Hasan, Jairaj, Pahadi Sanyal, Surendra, Chandra Mohan, Khalil, Baburao Pendharkar etc. She worked under top directors like Debaki Bose, Nitin Bose, Kedar Sharma, Phani Majumdar and others. Her sister Monica Desai (who married Phani Majumdar) was also in films. In 1944, Leela also acted in the movie ‘Kaliyan’ with Ramola. Ramola also acted in the film ‘Lalkar’ in the same year. In a span of just 10 years, Leela Desai acted in 21 films and then left films.

She settled in Darjeeling with her mother. Leela Desai owned a house in Darjeeling called ‘Lily Cottage’. Her mother Satyabala Devi lived there until her death. It is possible that Leela knew Manjula or Sumitra Sanyal in Darjeeling. Leela Desai is mentioned in Bollywood actress Sumitra Sanyal’s site.

Today’s song is sung by an unknown male, female and a chorus. I feel it must have been sung by some street singers or in the background in the film. Anyway, enjoy the song….

Hullo Atuldom

This is something which I have always felt. I read the title or heading of a song posted on the blog and immediately I recall another song that has similar thoughts, actions or beginning words in the lyrics. I had the same experience a few days back.

Let me explain. Last time the writing bug bit me, and I was writing this post, I had mentioned Farah Khan’s aunts – Honey and Daisy Irani in the post. As a next step I just looked up if any of their birth dates were in the next few days. I went a little further and just checked out which were the debut movies of the two super-cute sisters and found various sites giving names of different movies.

This Post by our in-house encyclopedia gives a brief biography of the two sisters. I also read Shri. Nayan Yagnik’s comments to the post, where he has mentioned that Honey Irani was youngest among the siblings and that ‘Didi’ or ‘Zameen ke Taare’ could be the debut of Honey. One thing definitely came out of all this research- I recollected a song from the ’80s which I used to hum and was full of ‘Anokhe Bol’.

The 1980s song that I am talking featured the Oh So Gorgeous!! Parveen Babi, Shatrughan Sinha, and Master Vishal. The song was shot in Byculla Zoo of Bombay which was called Victoria Gardens in those days. (This Zoo was renamed as Veermata Jijabai Bhonsale Udyan sometime after 1985 and Bombay became Mumbai. I am sure the older followers of this blog will tell if I am right.)

I am able to locate only a audio link of the song, but having seen it a number of times in Chitrahaar and other such television programmes, I can say that this song is meant to amuse a child who is upset that his family is no more.

Shatrughan Sinha, who plays a cop, is out to solve a triple murder, the child is the only one who escapes. Parveen Babi is the cop’s friend and she helps the cop become friendly with the glum child. Vinod Mehra, Bindiya Goswami (in guest appearances) and Ashok Kumar are the parents and grandfather of the boy who have been killed, Nirupa Roy played the grandma. Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Amjad Khan, Narendranath, Zarina Wahab, Kalpana Iyer, Imtiaz Khan, Satyen Kappu and Amjad Khan were the rest of the cast. The song I am bringing on-board here is from “Chor Police” (1983) which was the directorial debut of Amjad Khan and produced by his wife Shehla Khan and Vinay Kumar Sinha (who was Amjad Khan’s secretary too). It had RD Burman’s music and songs were written by Nida Fazli. Suresh Wadkar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar, Vinod Sehgal and Vanita Mishra were the playback singers used.

With this post we remember the heroine of this film, Parveen Babi who died on 20th January in 2005. She died a loner and her body was discovered by the police two days later when her neighbours saw uncollected groceries, milk and newspapers outside her door. She was only 50.

————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 159 # Missing Films of 1972 – 06#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ (1972). I had never heard of this movie earlier. I became aware of this movie only through HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

The film is directed by K Chatterjee for I.M.K. Films, Bombay. The star cast as listed in Geet Kosh includes Suma, Dinesh Rai, Sajan, Sonal, Darpan, Shambhu Mukherjee, Kailash Sharma, Gopal Bhatnagar, Ranjana, Usha, Sarita Devi, Preetam, Prem Roop, Samajeet, Prakash, Sudhanshu, Anil, Shyam, Manik, Sadanand, Udayveer, Prem, Mirchandani, BK Mukherjee, Sudhir, Satish, Namdev, Awasthi, Krishna, Satyadeep, and others. Anupama had a guest appearance in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 17.07.1972

This movie has three songs written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and composed to music by Usha Khanna. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

02 Tori Nathani Kaahe Haale Doley Ri Usha Khanna, Chitra Singh

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. Today’s song is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh and picturised on two actresses whom I am unable to identify, and many other artistes are seen in the picturisation of this song.
[Ed Note: The two dancers are Anupama (in orange dress) and Habiba Rehman (in blue dress). Thanks to Prakash ji for the identification.]

Here is the alphabetical list of movies of 1972 up to today’s movie, which is the 61st film in this list.
[Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs. Readers may refer to previous episodes of this series for earlier details – “Nai Hawa Mein Udne Dekho Ban Ka Mor Chala“.]

Note: – Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johny’ and ‘Hunterwaali’ seems to be unavailable as of now. And there is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’ and ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ as mentioned above.

Today’s song from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh. Music is composed by Usha Khanna. The video and audio versions have common ‘first stanza’ of the song but the second stanza in both the version is different.

As mentioned above I am unable to identify the artistes. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy the today’s lovely song…

As “blog Ten Year Challenge” today (4 January 2022), here is a song from “Devi”(1970). The song is sung by Rafi and a kid voice, credited as a kid who would later be known as Baba Sahgal.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that the song is picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Baby Sarika. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Blog Day :

4823 Post No. : 16601

On this 1st October 2021, I am completing 9 years of my blogging here. My first post was published on this Blog on 1-10-2012. It was on the film Savitri-1937. Since then in the last 9 years I have been continuously writing here and elsewhere. Though my writings are also published on several other Blogs and sites, my main favourite place is this one only.

Most of my original works were first published first here, except the interviews of relatives of old time artistes, which were published on memsaabstory.com. Some articles were published on anmol fankaar, Sangeet ke Sitare,Harveypam Blog, Kalyan Music Group, Songs of yore etc etc. In the last 9 years I have written, till today, 1020 posts here. It works out to an average of 1 article every 3.2 days-every 4th day- continuously for 9 years. In addition I have written film synopses of more than 600 films and more than 500 comments on this Blog alone. When I look back, I get surprised. How did I do it ?

There are reasons how and why I could do it. First, I like the atmosphere of this Blog. Secondly, Atul ji is a silent motivator, a good leader and he encourages contributors by giving a free hand and without disturbing styles of narrations. Thirdly, it is a very congenial and friendly team of Atulites. There are many more points but we all know them.

The Blog has created a special place for itself in the Blogosphere for its Credibility, Variety, Quantum of songs with lyrics and pots of information not available easily elsewhere. The Blog has actually become ” A Point Of Reference” for most other music and old film lovers. Information from the Blog is invariably quoted as proof and authenticity. Credit for all this goes to Atul ji. Thanks Atul ji. We feel proud to be associated with atusongaday !

Today’s song is from a Mythological film – Jai Bhim-1949. The film was made by Nav Jhankar productions, Bombay. It was directed by Anant mane -who became one of the all time successful Directors of marathi Cinema, later on. Music was by Sudhir Phadke, for songs written by lyricist Amar Verma- who married the famous Classical Singer Manik Dadarkar, better known as Manik Verma. The cast of the film was Vishwas, Vasant Thengdi, Ganapatrao Bakre, uma Devi, kusum deshpande, kanta kumari and many others.

Film Jai Bhim-49 was a MYthological film, but its information is not available anywhere. It is one of those films which have existance only in HFGK pages. The film was directed by Anant Mane. He was a struggling Director in 1949, but due to hard work and of course with good luck, he became a very big and renowned director in Marathi cinema. His contribution in the Hindi cinema was of a minimal nature but his Marathi films were mostly Hit films.

Anant mane was born in a lower middle class family of kolhapur, on 22-9-1915. His uncle Gyanba Mane was working in Prabhat films as an actor (in his last days Gyanba was seen selling vegetables on the roads of Kolhapur, for survival). Anant used to go with him to Prabhat studio. The studio life attracted him. At the age of 15 years, he left school and joined Prabhat. he was given work in the Laboratory. First 2 years he worked without pay and then he got a salary of Rs.10 pm.

While in Prabhat he worked and learned a lot in editing, Artwork, Sound recording in addition to working as an extra in a Mob scene. He was impressed with Shantaram’s knowledge in the studio. When the film ” Sairandhri” was made, he was given Vishnu’s role in it.

His diligence impressed Shantaram and he was taken in Editing laboratory. When Prabhat shifted to Poona, he too came with it and continued working in editing. He did editing of all Prabhat films till 1941. When Shantaram left Prabhat in 1942, he too left but joined as an assistant to director Raja nene till 1946. In 1949, he directed his first Hindi film ” Jai Bhim”-1949.

In 1950, Anant mane and Dada Dharmadhikari started ” Alhad Chitra”. Its very first Marathi film ” Bala jo jo re” became a hit and celebrated Silver jubilee. Their next two films ” Stree janma hi tuzi kahani” and ” Chimni Pakhare” also became Jubilee films. Chimni Pakhare was remade in Hindi as Nanhe Munne-1952. Anant mane directed 2 Hindi films in 1954-Kalakar and Suhagan, which were remakes of their Marathi films.

After this he concentrated only on marathi cinema and became a well known and successful director of 58 Marathi films. He also wrote stories and screenplays of 14 films. He won many State and Central Government awards. He considered Shantaram as his Guru. Even after being so successful, he worked as an assistant director to Shantaram for his famous film ‘ Pinjara”-1972.

Anant Mane died on 5-10-1995.

In the cast of this film you will find 2 names- Vasant Thengdi and Kusum Deshpande. They were husband and wife in real life. Thengdi was a very handsome person. Vasant Thengadi was born on 11-1-1910 at Nagpur. He was son of Congress leader Dhaniram Thengadi. Vasant had his education in Poona. He could not join the Army, because of his father’s political connections. He had to leave his Engineering college after father’s death. Being very handsome,tall and with good physique, he started working in Marathi dramas and films. He started his Hindi work with the film Dhuwandhar-35. ( This was also the Debut film for Leela Chitnis and Meera Alexander). He started doing Villain roles and became popular and famous. Besides Marathi films, his Hindi films were Taramati-45, Phir bhi apna hai-46, Mera Ladka-38, Din Raat-45, Ten o clock-42 etc. Later he also worked as assistant director to Raja Nene.

Kusum Deshpande was born on 20-11-1914 at Nagpur. She came to Bombay in 1930 and worked in Minerva as an apprentice, without pay. She worked in A.I.R. and some Marathi dramas and films. Her first Hindi film was Ghar ki Rani-40. She also did Charnon ki Daasi-41, Village Girl-45, Wamaq Azra-46 and Zamin Asmaan-46. In all she did 20 Hindi films. She married actor Vasant Thengadi on 30-11-1944.

After she stopped getting roles in Hindi films, she turned to Marathi films and had a long and fruitful career in it. She was the sister of actress Ranjana, who was Dilip Kumar’s Heroine in film Milan-1946( a bilingual in Hindi and Bangla, made by Bombay talkies).

Today’s song is a duet by Sudhir Phadke and Lalit Deulkar ( after this film they got married on 29-5-1949).

Hullo Atuldom

At the outset let me admit that I was reminded of today’s song a few days back when I was writing the post for Moushumi Chatterjee’s birthday.

Today’s song is from the 1980 released Raj Khosla directed Moushumi Chatterjee- Rishi Kapoor starrer “Do Premee”. It had a cast of Om Prakash, I S Johar, Deven Verma, Col. Kapoor (also went by the name Raj Bharati), Geeta Bahl, Aruna Irani, Roopesh Kumar etc.

The movie was a standard love story where the young couple are children of fathers who are not friends. Retd. Col. Bhagwant Singh (Om Prakash) goes to the extent of getting Payal (Moushumi) engaged to Roopesh Kumar but of course the couple elope and reach Mumbai. They take up jobs as driver and maid in a rich girl’s household (of course both are not aware that they are employed by the same person). This rich girl (Geeta Bahl) looks after her family business and also visits a guru (played by Raj Bharati). He has a huge ashram and is shown to perform miracles like walking on water etc. The guru also has a secret attached to his ashram and Deven Verma (a cop in plain-clothes) is out to crack the mystery. Meanwhile the fathers reconcile their differences and come looking for their children and save them from the captivity of the guru in the climax for a All-is-well ending.

The movie had six songs of which the blog has two both of which were posted in 2018.

Mausam pe jaaani hai (a very popular song of the movie)
and
Ladki waalon ki taraf se ladke aalon ko mubaarak ho

The songs were written by Anand Bakshi, composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal, sung by Anuradha Paudwal, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Mohd. Rafi.

Today we are having a duet by Mohd Rafi and Anuradha Paudwal. It shows the young couple being playful with each other. The song was decently popular in its time.

Today we are thinking of Chintu on his first anniversary. Unbelievable that it is an year. He was a person who was on his way to recovery from cancer and had gone to Delhi for a shoot when the Pandemic hit the country. He returned to Mumbai when the lock-down was announced. We saw him on news channels when the country did the candle lighting and clapping (thali bajaoing) for the Pandemic warriors. Must say that he looked a pale shadow of his former self but the child-like enthusiasm and his charming smile was there for all to see.

Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) was rather active on social media and didn’t dither from stating his mind. In the last decade or so he was seen in a variety of roles:- an underworld don in “D-Day”, a grand old 90-year man in “Kapoor & Sons”; even a 75-year-old son to a 100 year-old Amitabh Bachchan in “102 not out”. A lot more would have come for us -his fans- but for the exit which came a year ago on this date. It was a sad day for many of his colleagues, fans and most of all his near and dear ones.

I am waiting to see what happened to that last movie that he was shooting in New Delhi before the Pandemic.

Missing this actor who acted from the age of two and half years to 63.

Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, one halfof the music director Laxmikant-Pyarelal was born on 03/09/1940. So that makes this 80th Birthday of the one of the most proficient, successful and talented musicians of the golden era of hindi film music. It is a well-known fact that both Laxmikant and Pyarelaljistarted their career as players of music instruments in the song recordings. If I am not mistaken, Pyarelalji, was a violinist.

‘Most proficient’ in the film industry’s history is the correct tag for Laxmikant-Pyarelal as they are the composers with the highest no. of songs composed which stands at 2901, in the blog’s stats page.

Laxmikant Pyarelal started as music directors in 1963, they hit the jackpot with Dost (1964). What followed is history, with awards, accolades and they never looked back. They are on record as loyalists of Rafi Sahab till his lifetime, who also sang maximum no of songs for them.

The achievements and success are too many, for me to start listing them. But their association with Anand Bakshi is the longest one, and must be the biggest such combo. I would guess the total songs composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal may have around 2000 written by Anand Bakshi.

On this birthday occasion , I am presenting the song from the film Krodhi (1981), by this very same team/combo of Lakshmikant-Pyarelal with AnandBakshi. The singers are Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar. The was a multi-starrer film by Subhash Ghai. The starcast was Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Maushmi Chatterjee, Zeenat Aman, Shashi Kapoor etc and of course the love birds in the song, Sachin and Ranjeeta. The four songs of the film, which I remember are all nice one’s. But the movie is making a debut here on the blog with this song.

I have seen the movie, so can give a little outline of the story. Dharmendra is a gangster or smuggler, Zeenat Aman works for him and has a lot of regard and respect for him, as he has helped her a lot with the responsibilities. Zeenat Aman meets Shashi Kapoor (Police Inpector ?) at her sister’s wedding. Zeenat Aman and Shashi Kapoor get married, but Shashi Kapoor is not aware of the connection between Zeenat Aman and Dharmendra. The police is looking to arrest Dharmendra but he escapes and takes shelter in a village, where people mistake him for a godman or sadhu. Dharmendra adopts the disguise to escape the police. Sachin and Ranjita are the two characters who don’t make much difference to the story.

In the song, which Sachin and Ranjita are singing in the garden ‘Chameli baagh”, Dharmendra is looking on, and I think later on he helps them in some way or they are both murdered, by the villains. Dharmendra is also reminded of his late wife Maushmi Chatterjee while watching the song. Lata Mangeshkar is play backing for both Ranjita and Maushmi in the song.

The sort of word play which was a signature of Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi songs, is visible in this song.

kisi akeli ladki ko
bolo o bolo phir sataoge

kisi paraayi naari se bolo

phir na milega kabhi aisa mauka
aao prem karoge
nahin nahin nahin
aahen bharoge
nahin nahin nahin
hum pe maroge
nahin nahin nahin
panihaariyon ke panghat pe
bolo o bolo
kya phir aoge
tauba meri tauba
tauba meri tauba

o dekho hum tum donon aaj akele
baagon mein laage phoolon ke mele
bolo kya marzi hai
nahin nahin nahin
sun lo arzi hai
nahin nahin nahin
sardi lagti hai
haan haan haan
hey
meri gali aake meethhi meethhi seeti tum bajaaoge
tauba meri tauba
tauba meri tauba
kisi akele ladke ko
bolo o bolo phir sataaogi

tauba meri tauba
tauba meri tauba

ho tere naam ki maala phera karenge
roz tujhe hum chheda karenge
inkaar karegi

nahin nahin nahin
takraar karegi
nahin nahin nahin
o yaani pyaar karegi
haan haan haan haan haan
jo hum kalaayi pakden to bolo
ho bolo shor machaaogi

tauba meri tauba
tauba meri tauba
tauba tauba tauba
tauba meri tauba
tauba meri tauba
tauba meri tauba
tauba tauba tauba
tauba meri tauba

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 21
—————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the movie “Kavi-1954”. I have neither watched the movie nor I am aware of many of its songs. However, when I noticed this movie is due for ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ of 17.04.2020, I checked its pending songs. I came across a duet sung by Rafi Saab and Talat Mehmood which I found interesting since I was not aware of this song. Also, the music of this movie is composed by C. Ramchandra ji one of my favorite music directors which is another reason why I am sharing this song here today.

Three songs were represented on the blog on 17.04.2010 including a song from this movie ‘Kavi-1954’;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Bolo he zameen bolo aasmaan Chakradhaari-1954 All songs covered
Main pee ke nahin aaya Kavi-1954
Nuktaa cheen hai gham e dil Mirza Ghalib-1954 All songs covered

“Kavi-1954” had total ten songs in it, all written by Rajinder Krishan. Music for this movie was composed by C. Ramchandra.
Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Talat Mehmood, Asha Bhonsle and Chitalkar (C. Ramchandra) had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

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

Song-Kavita naam hai gyaan ka (Kavi)(1954) Singers-Rafi, Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

Kavita naam hai gyaan ka aa
ise likhne waale gyaani ee
shoom (?) ka beta bane kavi ee
ye hai uski naadaani ee
dhor charaane waale ae
bhaasha ke ras ko kya jaane ae
aise kavi to kaala akshar
bhains baraabar maanen ae
aise kavi duboyen lutiyaa
Kavita likhne waalon ki ee
aise kavi duboyen lutiyaa
Kavita likhne waalon ki
nayi kalpnaa gayi bhaad mein
dhoom machee nakkaalon ki ee
dhor charaane waalon ki ee

gyaan prabhu ki den hai
nahin kisi ki ye jaagir
jag ko bud’dhi denewaala
dekhe naa gareeb ameer
Ramaayan se badhkar achchha
aur nahin koi lekh
uske likhne waale daaku
Valmiki ko dekh
jaat paat naa poochhe koi
Kavita likhne waalon ki ee
jaat paat naa poochhe koi
Kavita likhne waalon ki
mahal chhod kar bani ye daasi
bojh uthhaane waalon ki ee
Kavita likhne waalon ki ee

badaa kavi hai kahin ka aa
to ik baat bataa aa
jagat mein pehle pahal pehlaa aa
chhand kisne likha aa
sawaal itnaa badaa hai
jawaab chhotaa saa aa
jagat wo chhand hai
Jagdish ne ae isey likhaa aa

badaa kavi hai kahin ka aa
to ik baat bataa aa
jagat mein pehle pahal pehlaa aa
chhand kisne likha aa
sawaal itnaa badaa hai
jawaab chhotaa saa aa
jagat wo chhand hai
Jagdish ne ae isey likhaa aa

banaaya jisne ye sansaar
uska roop hai kya aa
kisine aaj talak
usko aankh se dekhaa aa
hawaa nazar nahin aati ee
hawaa ka roop to hai
jo kuchh nazar mein hai
parmaatma ka roop to hai

khataa muaaf
hai munh chhotaa
aur baat badi ee
zaraa jawaab do o
hai din badaa ya
raat badi ee

bhalaaa ye poochhi hai tumne
kahaan ki baat badi ee
kabhi ke din hain bade ae
aur kabhi ki raat badi ee
tumhaari baat mein
Kavita ka ras nahin aaya
jawaab maine jo sochaa thha
wo nahin paaya
khataa muaaf
hai munh chhotaa
aur baat badi ee
hai din ghareeb ka aa
dhanwaan ki ee hai raat badi ee

Devnagri script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
——————————————————–
कविता नाम है ज्ञान का आ
इसे लिखने वाले ज्ञानी ई
शून(?) का बेटा बने ए कवि ई
ये है उसकी नादानी ई
ढोर चराने वाले ए
भाषा के रस को क्या जाने ए
ऐसे कवि तो काला अक्षर
भैंस बराबर माने ए
ऐसे कवि डूबोयें लुटिया
कविता लिखने वालों कि ई
ऐसे कवि डूबोयें लुटिया
कविता लिखने वालों कि
नयी कल्पना गयी भाड में
धूम मची नक्कालों की ई
ढोर चराने वालों की ई

ज्ञान प्रभु की देन है
नहीं किसी की ये जागीर
जग को बुद्धि देनेवाला
देखे ना गरीब अमीर
रामायण से बढ़कर अच्छा
और नहीं कोई लेख
उसके लिखने वाले डाकू
वाल्मीकि को देख
ज़ात पात ना पूछे कोई
कविता लिखने वालों की ई
ज़ात पात ना पूछे कोई
कविता लिखने वालों की
महल छोड़ कर बनी ये दासी
बोझ उठाने वालों की ई
कविता लिखने वालों की ई

बड़ा कवि है कहीं का आ
तो इक बात बता आ
जगत में पहले पहल पहला आ
छंद किसने लिखा आ
सवाल इतना बड़ा है
जवाब छोटा सा आ
जगत वो छंद है
जगदीश ने ए इसे लिखा आ

बड़ा कवि है कहीं का आ
तो इक बात बता आ
जगत में पहले पहल पहला आ
छंद किसने लिखा आ
सवाल इतना बड़ा है
जवाब छोटा सा आ
जगत वो छंद है
जगदीश ने ए इसे लिखा आ

बनाया जिसने ये संसार
उसका रूप है क्या आ
किसीने आज तलक
उसको आँख से देखा आ
हवा नज़र नहीं आती ई
हवा का रूप तो है
जो कुछ नज़र में है
परमात्मा का रूप तो है

खता मुआफ़
है मुंह छोटा
और बात बड़ी ई
ज़रा जवाब दो ओ
है दिन बड़ा या
रात बड़ी ई

भला ये पूछी है तुमने
कहाँ की बात बड़ी ई
कभी के दिन है बड़े ए
और कभी की रात है बड़ी ई

तुम्हारी बात में
कविता का रस नहीं था आ
जवाब मैंने जो सोचा था
वो नहीं पाया
खता मुआफ़
है मुंह छोटा
और बात बड़ी ई
है दिन गरीब का आ
धनवान की ई है रात बड़ी ई
