Blog Day :

4682 Post No. : 16363

I had almost forgotten about the existence of a film titled ‘Room No. 9’ (1946) until I came across a song from the film on one of the video sharing platforms a few days back. I checked on our Blog to know that two songs from the film was covered in the Blog as early as in March 2013 but surprisingly, the song which I had heard has not yet been covered in the Blog. I liked the song so much that I decided to share the song on the Blog with a small write-up.

‘Room No. 9’ (1946) was produced by S R Rajguru under the banner of Navyug Pictures and was directed by Vedi. The star cast included Shyam and Geeta Nizami in the lead role with K N Singh, Dar Kashmiri, Saroj Borkar, Randhir, Kesari etc in the subsidiary roles. At the outset, I did not have any idea as to which genre the film belonged. The film’s title gives an impression that it may be crime thriller. But an advertisement of the film which appeared on one of the 1946 issues of ‘Filmindia’ magazine indicates that film has the ‘most unusual romance’.

The film was released in Mumbai on June 15, 1946 and a review of the film was published in August 1946 issue of ‘Filmindia’ magazine. Based on the review, I am presenting below a summarized version of the story of the film:

Geeta (Geeta Nizami) is an heiress to a huge fortune left by her father. With this, Geeta’s life is at risk as her uncle is eyeing on her fortunes. For the attainment of his objective, he employs Pratap (K N Singh) a crook to do the needful.

For completing the formalities of handing over the fortunes to Geeta, Barrister Premchand (Raj Bishwas), the executor of the will, comes to the city and stays in a hotel where his son, Shyam (Shyam) escorts Geeta to the hotel room. However, Geeta suspects Shyam to be a crook without knowing that he is the son of Barrister Premchand. Instead, she relies on Pratap, the crook who kidnaps her. However, Shyam rescues her.

Thakur Ajit Singh (Randhir) who is a regular guest in the hotel gets attracted towards Geeta though he already has Rani (Saroj Borkar) as his mistress who is a disgraced wife of Barrister Premchand and the mother of Shyam. Neither Rani nor Shyam is aware that they are mother and son.

In Geeta’s room, Thakur Ajit Singh tries to molest her and, in this milieu, Thakur is shot dead. Thinking that Geeta must have shot him, Shyam takes the crime on himself and runs away from the police. However, he is arrested and put on trail for the murder of Thakur Ajit Singh. Based on the evidence given by Rani, Shyam is sentenced to death by hanging.

Barrister Premchand appeals to the high court for the review of the lower court’s verdict. In the court, he produces the childhood photograph of Shyam with his mother Rani. The mother in Rani makes her to confess that she had shot dead Thakur Ajit Singh in that fateful night. Shyam is acquitted and there is a happy end to the film.

The film had 8 songs, all written by Nakshab Jarchvi and set to music by Rashid Attre. As mentioned earlier, two songs have been covered in the Blog. I am presenting the 3rd song ‘tum iss nigaah se dekho na baar baar mujhe’ sung by Mohammed Rafi.

The song is written in a ghazal format and it is one among Rafi’s early dozen odd solo renditions. From his rendition, I can guess that Rafi has mastered the art of voice modulation for particular actors as early as 1946. The moment I heard the song, I got a feel that he was singing for Shyam.

Audio Clip:

Song-Tum is nigaah se dekho na baar baar mujhe(Room number 9)(1946) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Nakshab, MD-Rashid Atre

Lyrics

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 22
———————————————————————————–

This Week, That Year – 5
———————————–
09May – 15May, 2011

It has been a long gap. The previous post in this series had come on 23rd Sep, 2020. And the post number was 15911. About seven and a half month’s worth of waterflow has passed under all the bridges. That was 231 days ago. And 450 posts ago. The blog has clocked four more century milestones, and is close to a fifth now.

An understatement it is – that life has changed in these past months. A lot of ideas and motivation for writing has been numbed. Even with the time and inclination both pointing in the right directions, the flow of writing is simply not coming together. Every week for the past 5 or 6 weeks, I scrutinize the 10 year challenge lists. Ideas form in the mind, but somehow do not get on to paper. For this week’s analysis and this post, I have been checking on the week status from a decade ago, for past couple of days. And then today, just decided to start off with this inability to articulate. Let’s see where it will lead to.

Maybe start with numbers. The week that was – 9th to 15th May of 2011. We saw two dot days that week – 11th and 13th May. Something was in the air during those days. Between April and May of that year, we see 10 dot days, that do not seem customary. We had 28 songs posted in that week, and given two dot days, the average productivity would be approximately 5.6 posts per day.

The 28 songs belonged to 27 different films, and only one film made a repeat appearance that week – the film ‘Pugree’ of 1948.

Considering the decades – the thirties and seventies had just one song present. In between we had 8 songs for the 1940s, 11 songs for the 1950s and 7 songs for the 1960s.

The week saw 5 debut films come on board. And the film ‘Parasmani’ of 1963 completed its run and made the Yippeee status. Of the 27 films that got featured that week, a whopping 19 films have since been Yippeee’d over the past decade. And 8 films are still awaiting more songs to complete their run on our blog. All the films have between 2 to 5 songs pending, which means none of them is one song away from being Yippeee’d.

Coming to milestones, the week saw the century milestone for music director Anil Biswas. On 10th May, with the song “Paise Ka Mantar Paise Ka Jantar“, from the 1956 film ‘Paisa Hi Paisa’, Anil Biswas clocked his first 100 songs posted on our blog.

The day by day break up and details of posts on daily basis is given in the table below.

Ten years ago, this day six songs were posted from six films. Of the six films, the following four have since been Yippeee’d – ‘Pugree’ (1948), ‘Faraar’ (1965), ‘Uski Kahaani’ (1966) and ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’ (1973). The two pending films are ‘Chaalis Din’ (1959) and ‘Namaste Ji’ (1965). For today’s post, I have picked this fun wooing song in the voice of Rafi Sb from the film ‘Namaste Ji’.

This film has an interesting background, from a collector’s perspective. For almost two decades, this film has been on the fringe of becoming available in public domain. There are collectors who have been declaring the availability of this film with tantalizing promises of making it available ‘shortly’. But that shortly has never really materialized. To the extent that there are folks who have uploaded doctored videos, i.e. songs of this film overlaid on a video sequence of another film with the same lead actors. Ah yes, we do see many an example of such shady presentations. And to tell you – the world is so full of believers, that the comment sections of such uploads contains profuse thanks for being able to see the video clip of the song. There are rare comments that point out this insidious jugglery, but such statements of accusatory truth are lost in the bevy of praises.

One of my very close and dear friends, has shown me photographs of the library shelves of another collector in Bombay, where the Betamax tape of this film, ‘Namaste Ji’ is very much visible. But no, we have had no success in being able to view or acquire this film. And so we are also not 100% certain that the titles that are sitting in the library of this other collector, whether these just blanks, to impress others. Do not know. This, and actually many other titles, have been doing rounds of collector circles and communications – that they are imminent to be released to public domain shortly.

Another very interesting variation to this scenario is the case where the original film has been dubbed into another language. Case in point is the film ‘Qaidi’ from 1957, very well known for its musical score by OP Nayyar. Now this film, as many others, was later dubbed into Tamil and other south Indian languages. The current scenario with this film is that the Hindi original of this film is not available (yet) in public domain. However the Tamil version is very much available in public domain. Some technically astute and enterprising collector has picked the video sequence from the Tamil version and has overlaid the audio of the song in Hindi. He has posted a couple of such ‘manufactured’ videos with the claim that they are the original and that he has the full film in original Hindi. After much explorations and discussions, it has been determined that the claim is spurious.

A very enticing and also tormenting situation is when actually we have real and true clips of songs and short video sequences posted online, but the entire film is simply not surfacing anywhere. Years have passed in waiting but simply no word of real existence has surfaced. Maybe I shall take this up in another post – it is getting very lengthy.

So back to ‘Namaste Ji’. The film has been produced under the banner of DM Films, Bombay (now Mumbai) and is directed by Daljeet Krishan. Is Daljeet the ‘D’ in the banner name? Not sure. The star cast as per the Geet Kosh is Ameeta, Mehmood, IS Johar, Nalini Chonkar, Ulhas, Manorama, Mridula, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Baij Sharma, Brahmdutt, Helen, Sumita, Arti, Manjula, Vinod, Ramesh, Ajeet, Meena, Baijnath, and Nazeer.

The film has 8 songs listed. The music boasts of such all time favorites as “Mere Do Naina Matwaale Kis Ke Liye“, “Bahaaron Thaam Lo Ab Dil Mera Mehboob Aata Hai“, and “Hamen Kya Jo Har Su Ujaale Huyen Hain”. Interesting to note that so far 4 songs of this film have made their appearance on the blog. Three of them appeared in 2011, the fourth came on board in 2014. And then, a long radio silence. Yes, the fifth song makes its appearance today, after a gap of seven years.

The music composition is by GS Kohli and the song writing is shared between Anjaan and Anand Bakshi. However sadly, the song being presented today has no lyricist identified for it. Could this be a traditional or a folk song that has been reused? Yes, quite possible, from the sound of it. The language of the song sounds like Awadhi or Bhojpuri, and so it could be folk song that has been brought into this film. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please comment on this observation.

From the rendering of this song, it may be not wrong to surmise that this song is picturized on Mehmood. It sounds similar in rural tones, to some other songs that Mehmood had performed on screen, e.g. the song “Pipra Ke Patwa Sareekhe Doley Manwa” from the 1963 film ‘Godaan’.

So, wrapping up today’s write up, with a forlorn hope that this film shall make its appearance in the public domain, sooner than later.

Let us see.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 136 # A tribute to lyricist Verma Malik & Rishi Kapoor#
——————————————-————————————————-—

Today 30th April’2021 is the first ‘Remembrance Day’ of actor Rishi Kapoor. He was born 04th September 1952 and passed away on 30th April 2020 at the age of sixty-seven only.

When I was a growing child in the seventies Rishi Kapoor was a rising star and had started his film career with the 1973 movie ‘Bobby’. I must be five years old then. And as I have mentioned in one of my earlier articles, I had not watched this movie. Maybe I have watched few songs of this movie on TV. Then there were movies like ‘Rafoo Chakkar’, ‘Badalte Rishtey’, ‘Raajaa’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’, ‘Jhoothha Kahin Ka’, ‘Aap Ke Deewaane’ etc, then ‘Naseeb’’ ‘Ye Waadaa Rahaa’, ‘Karz’, ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhaanaa Hai’ and others which are a part of nostalgia of my growing years. I am not going to list all of them here. But I would like to mention few of his movies which I watched as a grown-up boy, ‘Saagar’, ‘Chaandni’, ‘Bol Radha Bol’, ‘Deewaanaa’, ‘Heena’ etc which I watched during my stay at Kota (Rajasthan).

In the recent years I watched his ‘102 not out’ on TV after his death.

As I mentioned above his movies are part of my growing years and will always be remembered whenever Hindi movies of the seventies-eighties’ are discussed.

He was very active in his personal life too and he spoke his mind on many issues on social media like twitter.

He was smiling even on the day he was hospitalized as we have seen in a video in circulation in media after his hospitalization or just before the night that he left us.

He lived his life to the fullest and his smiling face can never be forgotten.

For today’s occasion I am presenting a song which is a background song from the movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’. If we see the types of roles Rishi Kapoor played on screen and his personal life, he was always a ‘Zindaa Dil’ person.

Let us have a look on the list of movies released in ‘1975’ having actor Rishi Kapoor acted in them.

S. No Name of the movie Actress Passed by Censor Board
01 Khel Khel Mein Neetu Singh 13.05.1975
02 Raajaa Sulakshana Pandit 17.11.1975
03 Rafoo Chakkar Neetu Singh 02.01.1975
04 Zindaa Dil Neetu Singh 15.10.1975

(I sincerely hope that I have not missed any movie in above list)

Today’s song is written by lyricist Verma Malik. We remember him too and pay our homage to him. His ninety-sixth birth anniversary passed on 13th April’2021.
He was born on 13th April 1925 and left this world on 15 March 2009.

Today’s wonderful song also serves as our tribute to him.

Coming back to the today’s movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’, it was directed by Sikander Khanna for ‘S.B. Films International, Bombay’.

It had Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Zahira, Pran, I.S. Johar, Roopesh Kumar, Rajesh Lahar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raj Mehra, C.S. Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Padma Chauhan, Rajrani, Uma Khosla, Master Shailesh, Master Rocky, Baby Fatima, Meenakshi, Goga, Dham Mota, Ghanshyam, Manohar Azad, and K.D. Shorey, Raja Duggal and Sikander Khanna in special appearance.

This was passed by Censor Board on 15.10.1975.

This movie had five songs penned by Verma Malik and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

So far, two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi. I guess that this song appears in the movie in parts. HFGK Vol-V mentions this song as one song only. Video for all the parts of this song seems to be un-available.

In the year ‘1975’ Verma Malik wrote lyrics for the following movies.

S. No Name of the movie Music Director
01 Aandolan Jaidev
02 Apne Dushman Kalyanji-Anandji
03 Chori Mera Kaam Kalyanji-Anandji
04 Do Jhooth Shankar-Jaikishan
05 Monto Kalyanji-Anandji
06 Raftaar Sonik-Omi
07 Sanyaasi Shankar-Jaikishan
08 Zindaa Dil Laxmikant-Pyarelal
09 Zorro Kalyanji-Anandji

From the songs penned by him in the above movies, only one song made it to the final of Binaca geetmala 1975. It was a song from ‘Sanyaasi-1975’ and it was was at number thirty-two. However, the top two songs of the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ 1975 were written by Verma Malik. They were from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’.

Let us now listen to today’s song (a philosophical song) and pay our tributes to lyricist Verma Malik and actor Rishi Kapoor…

Today’s song, which I guess is played in parts in the movie, are available in audio in several versions. I have selected a version that contains all stanzas .

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 6
———————————————————

We move further to the next post in this series. Today’s song is from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Shaahzaadaa’.

‘Shaahzaadaa-1972’ was directed by K. Shankar for ‘Amar Chhaaya, Bombay’. It had Rajesh Khanna, Rakhi, Madan Puri, Veena, Karan Deewan, Pandari Bai, Jairaj, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Gulshan Bawra, Sonu Arora, Badriprasad, Halam, Varlakshami.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.09.1972. This movie had five songs written by Rajinder Krishan. Music for this movie was composed by R.D. Burman.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar had given their voices to the songs in this movie. The list of the songs in this movie is as given below and songs posted earlier on the blog have been mentioned with their respective date of posting.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 O tere athhroo chun lawaan main Mohd Rafi Being discussed today
02 Na jaiyyo, chhod ken aa jaiyyo meri raani Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 04.08.2020
03 Rimjhim rimjhim dekho baras rahi hai raat Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 29.12.2010
04 Thokar mein hai meri saaraa zamaanaa Kishore Kumar 20.07.2012
05 Pariyon ki nagri se aayaa Lata Mangeshkar

From the above list we can see that Lata and Kishore Kumar had two duets and one solo song each, and Mohd Rafi sang only one song in this movie. And that is the subject matter of this series. I am looking for such instances where Rafi Saab had sung only one song in a movie where music is composed by R.D. Burman. In the previous post we saw one such instance with a song from ‘Phir Wohi Raat-1980’.

In both the movies the other song by a male singer is by Kishore Kumar only. And that made me think if there are movies where Rafi Saab had sung majority of songs and Kishore Kumar had sung only one song. Two such movies immediately come to my mind, and incidentally these two are also Kaka movies, ‘Do Raaste-1969’ and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehendi-1971’ where the music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. May be there are more such instances.

We will bring them here in future posts and enjoy them with a song. 😊

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Mohd Rafi for Rajesh Khanna in this movie ‘Shaahzaadaa-1972’. Video of this song seems to be unavailable as of now and only the audio is available. Lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

Lyrics

O tere athhroo

Today (15 april 2021) is the 99th birth anniversary of Hasrat Jaipuri (15 April 1922 – 17 September 1999).

Hasrat Jaipuri penned over 1000 songs in Hindi movies from 1949 (“Barsaat”) till 2004 (Hatya: the murder ).

Majority of Hasrat Jaipuri songs were with Shankar Jaikishan. Most of them have already been covered in the blog. We need to look at movies of 1970s to come up with Hasrat Jaipuri songs penned for Shankar Jaikiszhan.

“Yaar Mera”(1971) one of the few movies that still offers us opportunity of discuss Hasrat Jaipuri songs composed by Shankar Jaikishan,

“Yaar Mera”(1971) was produced by Raja Ram and Satish Wagle and directed by Atmaram for RS Productions, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Rakhee, Nazima, Helen, Paintal, Achala Sachdev, Jayant, Sajjan, Randhir, Murad, Sulochana Sr., Nana Palsikar, Radheshyam, Narbada Shankar, Krishan Dhawan, Manmohan, Raj, Darshan, MS Mehta, Fordil, A Kumar, Ram Sindhi, Mona, Ashok Bhalla. etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past. This fourth song is sung by Rafi. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan,

The song is picturised as an eve teasing song where Jeetendra is seen making passes over Raakhi.

I have mentioned in the past that picturisation of such eve teasing songs followed a certain pattern. The lady would be seen taking serious exception throughout the song, only to relent during the penultimate line of the song. But things were seemingly becoming more liberal by 1971. Here Raakhi is seen responding to the advances of Jeetendra from the second stanza itself. Times they were a changing in HFM, as we can see from this picturisation. 🙂

Lyrics of the song were sent to my by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Haay kuchh aisi adaa se wo mera yaar chala (Yaar Mera)(1971) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

“Mastaani”(1955) was produced and directed by Dhirubhai Desai for Sharad Productions, Bombay. This “veshbhoosha pradhan” movie had Nigar, Manhar, Shahu Modak, Ratnmala, Niranjan Sharma, Agha, Suryakant, Seeta Bose, Santosh Kumar, N Bhushan, Dilip, Roop Kumar, Mishrilal, B N Bali etc in it. This movie also had guest appearances by Kamal, Indira Bansal, Jankidas, Yashoshara and Bhagan.

The movie had 12 songs in it. 3 of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Mastaani”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi and chorus. B D Mishra is the lyricist. Music is composed by B N Bali.

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

———————————–————––——————————————–————
Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 4
———————————–————––——————————————–————
Chaudhvin ka chaand ho
Ya aaftaab ho….
Jo bhi ho tum khudaa ki qasam
Lajawaab ho…oo….ooo

This time it is the turn of Music director who is known as the creator of iconic songs, popularly known as Ravi. His association with Rafi sahab begins in 1956-57 with the first film “Ek Saal” with 2 solo songs written by Prem Dhawan. Many of these iconic songs composed by Ravi were sung by Rafi sahab in this long association which ended only with the demise of Rafi Sahab in 1980. I counted 251 songs composed by Ravi in the excel sheet of Rafi sahab songs. Around 200 of these songs are upto late 60’s. In the 70’s Rafi sahab’s output has as it is decreased so it is not surprising that the 70’s decade there are less than 50 songs by the team of Mohammed Rafi-Ravi, with various lyricists.

Starting from 1957, there are around 50 songs upto 1960. So the 60’s decade is the most productive one with around 150 songs. This, despite Ravi being at the peak of his career working extensively with the B.R. Chopra camp. There are clear indications that Ravi preferred to have Rafi sahab sing his songs whenever he was working outside the BR camp, when he had Mahendra Kapoor sing most of his songs.

The very summit of this association is the legendary solo of Chaudhvin ka chaand(1960). The film has 5 Rafi solo numbers, all of them popular songs, all the places that I saw. But the excel sheet is listing one additional song with the words “yehan ke dost ba-wafa”, so there is a possibility of a small snippet of rendition of some poetry maybe lying hidden in the movie. The story really does take off from here with 7 songs in ‘Tu nahin aur Sahi’ (1960). Then comes the sonorous Husn waale tera jawaab nahin in Gharana (1961). With 6 songs in “China Town” 1962, Rafi has become the only male singer for Ravi in all ‘AA’ and ‘AB’ grade movies which had ‘AAA’ grade music. Rafi sahab went on to croon these outstanding solos/duet for Sunil Dutt in the film “Aaj aur kal” (1963) composed by Ravi:

mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main
Ye aadiyaan ye fizaayen bulaa rahi hain tumhen
itni haseen itni jaaan raat kya karen

In 1963 Ravi had Rafi sahab sing 5 songs each in Bharosa, Pyar ka Bandhan and Grihasti, on Mehmood, Guru Dutt, Raj Kumar Johnny Walker and Manoj Kumar. It is most likely that there were no other male playback singers in the credits of these movies too. This is apart from the 7 songs including 4 solos in ‘Pyar Kiya to Darna kya” for Aagha and Shammi Kapoor. 1963 also saw the song Sau baar janam lenge in the film “Ustadon ke Ustaad”.

Here is a list of 4 of the popular and unique, of the 7 Rafi songs in the film “Door ki Aawaaz”:

Song Singers
Ham bhi agar bachche hote Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle
Husn se chaand bhi sharmaayaa hai Mohd Rafi
Kyaa yoonhi rooth ke jaane ko muhabbat ki thhi Mohd Rafi
Muqaddar aazmaanaa chaahtaa hoon Mohd Rafi

Shakeel Badayuni seems to have formed a newer equation with Ravi post “Chaudhvi ka Chaand” going by the no. of films I am finding in the Rafi list where they worked together.

Rafi-Ravi combination moved on to Shehnai in 1964 with 4 solos and 1 duet, in a Rafi-Asha score, with one melodious solo for Asha Is tarah todaa mera dil .

“Khandaan” 1965 again was again an all-Rafi score with 6 songs, 7th being the iconic Lata solo Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri poojaa tumhi devtaa ho .

I simply must list the iconic solos by Rafi sahab in Do Badan(1966):

Song Singers
Bhari duniyaa mein aakhir dil ko samjhaane kahaan jaayen Mohd Rafi
Is Jahan Se (Verse) Mohd Rafi
Naseeb mein jiske jo likhaa thaa Mohd Rafi
Rahaa gardishon mein hardam Mohd Rafi

There is a bonus in this film also with additional verse “is jahan se’, we can look forward to finding and enjoying.

In 1967, there were ‘Meherbaan’ and “Nai Roshni” followed with “Do Kaliyan” and ‘Neel Kamal’ in 1968. Do I really need to list the songs of ‘Neel Kamal”? I dont think so. “Neel Kamal” atleast had a Manna Dey song on Mehmood Khaali dabba khaali bottle lele mere yaar .

This is 1969 and Ek phool do mali:

Song Singers
Aulaad waalon phoolo phalo Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
Chal chal re naujawaan-parody song Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
O nanhe se farishte Mohd Rafi
Ye parda hata do Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle

They reach early 70’s to create these two meaningful songs:

Song Movie (year) Singers MD Lyricist
Mujhe ishq hai tujhi se meri jaan e zindagaani Ummeed(1971) Mohd Rafi Ravi Shakeel Badayuni
Mere Dost Tujhe Tera Meet Mubarak Dhadkan(1972) Mohd Rafi Ravi Ravi & Ali

We must go back to the early years of Rafi-Ravi association to reach “Mehendi’ 1958. This is a recital by Rafi sahab of a poetry titled ‘Baazaar-e-husn’ by Kaamil Rashid. Ajit is reciting this nazm in the movie on a Kotha, presumably of Umrao Jaan. This movie Mahendi 1958 was based on a novel “Umrao Jaan Ada” (1904) authored by Mirza Hadi Ruswa. The other two movies named “Umrao Jaan’ were based on the same novel. This is an affirmation of the feeling I had, that it must be based on a novel, while watching ‘Umrao Jaan’ 1981.

This recital is another great rendition, without music, reminding me of the rendition of Unhen qissa e gham jo likhne ko baithhe in ‘Naya Qanoon’(1965) and Kya gham jo andheri hain raaten in ‘Barsaat ki raat’ (1960).

In the movie, this recital happens, then the reply by ‘Umrao Jaan’ in Lata Mangehskar’s voice is posted here bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin. The recital on screen is by an actor named Jayshree, whose identity is not clear. I have seen the posted songs of the film to find if this is the veteran Marathi film actress Jayshree Gadkar. The film’s poster by SaReGaMa has Jayshree Gadkar on it. She has been seen in a few hindi films in later years like “Bahaaron ke Sapne’1967. But there is a question mark if it is the same actor in Mehendi(1958). The cast of the film is Jayashree, Ajit, Veena, Kumar, Baalam, Mirza Musharraf, Lalita Pawar, Baby Devika, Adib, Ismail, Prakash, Jago, Maqbool, Krishnakant, Munshi Munakka, Hamid – I, Dinanath, Anwari Bai, Qaisarbai, & Mumtaz Begum.

These four songs of the film are posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Apne kiye pe koyi pashemaan ho gayaa 21 december 2009
Bedard zamaana tera dushman hai 26 december 2009
Pyaar ki duniya lutegi hamen maaloom na thhaa 11 may 2012
Bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin 22 may 2012

I had come accross long-time back and all these years I was under the impression that there is this song by Rafi, a recital filmed on Ajit, and it is already posted. Then last month I found this song and saved the link for having it in this series, as it was not posted. For last two weeks, I have not worked on any posts, but it was there on the back of the mind, that some of these wonderful songs are saved in my drafts and I need to get on with it. Finally, yesterday I opened the laptop, with this very song on the mind, and lo, there it was in one of the comments that the recital is not posted.
The question/grievance/complaint is here now, the answer to it was here already.
Editor’s note:-This song is the 500th song from movies of 1958 to appear in the blog.

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 5
———————————————————

Welcome all to today’s post which is coming after a long gap of more than two years. In this series we discussed song by ‘Pancham-Rafi’ jodi. This series was basically inspired by an article on the blog ‘Pancham and Only Pancham’ – and the title of the article is ‘Tribute to Rafi Sahab on 28th Death Anniversary‘, published on Rafi Sb’s twenty-eighth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ on 31.07.2008. This article lists out the ‘variety of songs by the genius -Pancham-Rafi’ jodi based on different ‘genres’ of music.

When I came across the above article I thought to share this list with readers on our blog too. So, when I started this series in ‘2015’ with this song – “Jaag Devta Naag Devta – nine out of the twenty songs listed in the article were already posted on the blog. After that, I shared three more songs viz. – “Raqqaasa Mera Naam, Ae Sahib Sabko Salaam“, “Maine Kab Chaaha Ke Dulha Banoonga” and “Maakhan Chor Nandkishore Manmohan Ghanshyam Re“. The remaining songs were shared by our team members from time to time, and all these twenty songs are on the blog now.

Readers can go through the list in the article mentioned above. As the songs in this list were already getting posted on the blog, I had in the post for the song “Maine Kab Chaaha Ke Dulha Banoonga” mentioned that I will include some more songs in this series, not on the basis of music-genres, but these ‘special songs’ are from the category of being ‘the only Rafi song in a movie where music was composed by RD Burman.

Today’s song is one such song and it is from the movie ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980).

This film was directed by Danny Dengzongpa for Prithvi Pictures, Bombay. The star cast includes Rajesh Khanna, Kim (new discovery), Shashikala, AK Hangal, Suresh Oberoi, Lalita Pawar, Tamanna, Aruna Irani, Danny Dengzongpa, Om Shivpuri, Shobha Khote, Jagdeep, Mukri, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Madhu Malhotra, Shashi Kiran, Manmauji, Prakash, Lalita Kumari, Brahm Bharadwaj, Ranjeet Sood, Jugnu, Chand Usmani, Moolchand, Gopal Saigal, Master Chirag and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.08.1980 with restricted viewing (Adults Only) certificate.

This movie had six songs, all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed to music by RD Burman. Here is the list of the songs of this movie,

Today’s song, the only Rafi song, in this movie is lip-synced on screen by actor Jagdeep.

Today 29th March 2021 is eighty-second birth anniversary (born on 29.03.1939) of actor Jagdeep. He passed away last year on 08th July 2020. As a tribute to him we will listen and enjoy this entertaining song from this movie. The song is ‘joie-de-vivre’ where other than Jagdeep we can see Mohan Choti, Bhagwan, Mukri, Birbal, Gopal Saigal and others also performing with him.

Also wishing herewith is ‘Happy Holi’ to all. Though the song is not a ‘holi’ song but ‘holi’ celebrations can be enjoyed this year ‘in house’ only – with playing this song and ‘taking a jig’ on this vibrant Pancham composition.

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 3
———————————–————––———

Sar jo tera chakraaye, Ya dil dooba jaaye
Aa jaa pyaare paas hamaare, Kaahe ghabraaye
Kaahe ghabraaye. . .

Ae dil hai mushkil jeena yahaan
Zara hatt ke zara bach ke
Yeh hai bombay meri jaan. . .

Jaane kahan mera jigar gaya ji
Abhi abhi yahi thha kidhar gayaa ji. . .

Gareeb jaan ke hum ko na tum mita dena
Tumhin ne dard diya hai tumhi dawaa denaa

Just to list a few of the famous Rafi solos and duets for Johny Walker.

This series is about collaborations and team work by Rafi Sahab for various artists, mainly with composers, singers and lyricists.  But since the song I stumbled upon is too good, atypical rendition by Rafi Sahab for Johnny Walker, as we know the veteran comic actor.  So I have included this in the series.

In the list of Rafi Sahab’s songs I counted around 125 songs of Johnny Walker.   This blog already has 136 songs listed as filmed on Johnny Walker songs. The readers can view the list here.

Some of these are by other singers like Mannadey or Mahendra Kapoor etc., but they should be very few, so what I have found is possibly one of the very few around 5-10 Rafi songs actually sung on screen by Johnny Walker remaining to be posted.

‘Ghulam Begum Baadshah’ is a 1956 film produced under the banner of Niagra Films, Bombay and is directed by Jugal Kishore. The star cast of the film is listed as Sheela Ramani, Daljeet, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Altaf, Nishi, Sadiq, Paras, Khairati, Malika, R Nath, Jogendra, Preetam, Dilip Bamblaheri, Wajid Ali, Bhanesh Kumar, Shivji Bhai, Chand, Kamaldeep, Rajpuri, Prakash, and Johnny Walker

The film has six songs written by four lyricists – Indeewar, Roopbani, Shyam Hindi and Shaukat Pardesi. This song is written by Roopbani. The film’s music is composed by Sudipta Bhattacharya. Four out of six songs of this film are posted in the blog :

Aaj Hai Mujhko Khushi Jhoomti Hai Zindagi
Dil Hai Ye Tera Dil Tu Liye Jaa
Dil Se Mere Dil Mila
Jannat Ki Hoor Hoon Dil Ka Suroor Hoon

The tally of the lyricist and the music director in our blog, as per the stats page is as follows:

Sudipta Bhattacharya 6
Roopbani 19

Going by the above Sudipta Bhattacharya, was not a one film wonder and he has composed the music for at least two Hindi films or may be some non-film songs.  This is a rare qawwali by a Bengali music director, discounting the excellent filmy qawwaliyan composed by RD Burman.

Such is the beauty of 50’s Rafi songs, and this song has the added attraction is being specifically sung for Johnny Walker.  As a composition also I must say it is top-notch.  It could have been the run of the mill, funny, chhed-chhad qawwali, but it is not so.  The sense of timing of Johnny Walker and Rafi sahab’s spirited enjoyment of performing and singing is a highlight.

One can imagine the amount of time and hard work in the creation of this and the many  rehearsals etc that must have been gone into creating this song.

The more times I see and hear this song, I am sure whoever is reading the post is going to see this song multiple times.  Truly, it is so perfectly synchronised, composed, written, sung, performed and edited song.
