“Jhaansi Ki Raani”(1953) which deals with the story of the famous Rani of Jhaansi, was produced and directed by Sohrab Modi fpr Minerva Movietone, Bombay. This movie had Mehtab (in title role), Sohrab Modi, Mubarak, Ulhas, ram Singh, Sapru, anil Kishore, Baby Shikha, Kamalkant, Michael Shea, Marconi, Nayampalli, Gloria Gasper, Shakeela, Dar Kashmiri (Jeewan), Chaube ji, Srinath, Burhanuddin, Jagdish Kamal, Baby Feroza, Bonani Chaudhary, Master Salim, Raja nandlal, Nandu Khote, Kabeer, Bhoop Kishore, Homi Sethna, Jerry, Chitralekha, Anant Joshi etc in it.

This movie had the distinction of being the first technicolour movie made in India. Ironically, the movie, unlike its subject matter, has become forgotten with time.

The movie had eight songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Jhaansi Ki Raani”(1953) to appear in the blog. This song is sung mainly by chorus, with some part sung by Rafi. Pt Radheshyam is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

With this song, the title song of the movie, “Jhaansi Ki Raani”(1953) makes its debut in the blog and becomres the 3600th movie to find representation in the blog.

Chorus

Lyrics

aa aa aa aa
amar hai jhaasi ki raani

amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
jiska raaj aur rajdhaani

aazaadi ki pratham bhent thhi
aazaadi ki pratham bhent thhi

amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani

jis bharat mein bade bade ho gaye shoor balwaan
bhishm pitamah parshuraam arjun angad hanumaan
veer shivaaji chatrsaal raana praatap chauhan
raaja shri ranjeet singh se akbar se sultaan
usi desh ki aary desh ki thhi ye bhi santaan
aan nahin di shaan nahin di

aaj talak itihaas kah raha
khoob ladi mardaani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani

aa aa aa aa aa

dhany dhany buldelkhand hai
dhany hind ka paani
amar hai jhaansi ki raani

amar hai ae ae

To keep up our New Year resolution of one movie getting Yippeeeed per day I found that the 1982 Manmohan Desai produced & directed “Desh Premee” falls short by a song to achieve YIPPEEHOOD.

The movie had six songs (referred myswar.com for this information) of which the blog has 5 songs. The songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi -Pyare were the music directors. The movie had one song by Mohd. Rafi- his last in a Manmohan Desai movie (that is the left over song). Manmohan Desai with Laxmi-Pyare and Mohd. Rafi had created a magical era of Bollywood music. This movie had Shammi Kapoor in a supporting role with the Bengali superstar of that era- Uttam Kumar; but both didn’t have any song to lip-sync. The movie payed tribute to Mehmood’s Hydrabadi- character from “Gumnaam” and we had Amitabh Bachchan dressing up; as Mehmood had done in Gumnaam and singing “Khatoon Ki Khidmat Me” in a Hyderabadi lingo in Kishore Kumar’s voice. Laxmikant’s voice was used for both Prem Chopra and Amitabh in the song “Gore Nahin Hum Kaale Sahi”; the only time he sang in movies (credits of the movie shows his name as Laxmikant Karpe.) This was one movie where Parveen Babi didn’t sing a song. Though it was an “Average” movie everywhere else it was a “Golden Jubilee” at Hyderabad’s Ramakrishna (I remember that as the movie hall where I saw Sholay for the first time in my life). The film paid tribute to Mohd. Rafi and Uttam Kumar both of whom died two years before the movie released. It’s censor cerificate has the date 6-3-1982 and it was released on 23-04-1982.

So here is the last song. It is filmed in a Basti- Bharat Nagar; trust Manji (thats how Amitabh refers to Manmohan Desai in his interviews) to make things very clear to the public. It is shown to be a refugee camp of sorts and has Premnath playing a Nair- South Indian, Shammi Kapoor a Sardar- North Indian of course, Uttam Kumar a Bengali- Indian from east, and Parikshit Sahni representing western India and a muslim for added effect; things cannot be more explicit than this- right? The song preaches to love our fellow Indians and respect the ideals of the nation.
Foot Note: just saw the title sequence of the movie and I recommend it for the thought behind how Amitabh’s blood is shown dripping from his leg and “Inquilaab Zindabad” is formed. Hatsoff to MANJI.


Song-Nafrat ki laathhi todo laalach ka khanzar phenko (Deshpremi)(1982) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Lamikant Pyarelal
Chorus

kyaa apnaa naataa hai
ham aapas mein lad baithhe
to desh ko kaun sambhaalegaa
koi baahar waalaa
apne ghar se
hamen nikaalegaa
deewaanon hosh karo o o
mere desh premiyon
aapas mein prem karo
desh premiyon
mere desh premiyon
aapas mein prem karo
desh premiyon

poorab pashchim uttar dakkhan waalon
meraa matlab hai
is maati se poochho
kyaa bhaashhaa

phir mujhse baat karo o o
mere desh premiyon

“Matwaala”(1958) was directed by M A Thirumugam for Saraswati Pictures. The movie had Ranjan, Baliah, Anjali Devi, E. V. Saroja, P. S. Verappan, M. K. Radha etc in it.

This obscure movie had seven obscure songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Matwaala”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Hargovind is the lyricist. Music is composed by R Sudarshanam.

Only the audio of this song is avaialable. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. The word “Matwaala” figures a few times in the song and that makes this song the theme cum title song of the movie.

With this song, “Matwaala”(1958) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Sach ki hogi jeet sadaa (Matwaala)(1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hargovind, MD-R Sudarshanam

Lyrics

sach ki hogi jeet sada
aur jhooth ki hogi haar
kaaghaj ke phulo pe kaise
aa sakti hai bahaar

jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega aa aa
phool bana hi lega

baadal garje bijli kadke
toofaan shor machaaye
manzil ka matwaala raahi
aage badhta jaaye
hanste hanste har mushqil
aasaan bana hi lega aa aa
aasaan bana hi lega
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega

door ho kinaara bhale door ho
kitna wo thhaka haara majboor ho
de de jaan par na dare matwaala
de de jaan par na dare matwaala
ismein hi jeet maane jeet dilwaala
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega aa aa
phool bana hi lega

hullo to all Atulwaasis

Today is 24th December 2016 -92nd birth anniversary of Mohammad Rafi.

At first I thought I would not be able to do a post which does justice to the persona of Mohd Rafi. Even now I am not trying to; all that I am doing is bringing to the blog a song which shows the vocal range that Rafisaab was gifted with. And this is not a super classical song but a fun song which one would normally expect Rafi to sing for Shammi Kapoor. But today’s song is for Shashi Kapoor and one should be excused if there is a feeling of the song being a Shankar- Jaikishan creation. Why? Because the director duo of this song were once music arrangers & assistants for Shankar Jaikishan.

If one were to analyse Hindi film songs by content, most of them would fall in the love-romance category. This is understandable because a very high proportion of films revolve around love and romance.
