Here is the fourth song from ‘Raja Harishchandra’ (1952) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi. Husnlal Bhagatram are the music directors. As per the Geet Kosh, the songs of this film are written by four songwriters – Bharat Vyas, Ramesh Gupta, Gulshan Jalaalabaadi and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, the lyricist of the individual songs are not identified.

This is a philosophical song that is performed on screen by an old brahmin, as Raja Harishchandra and his family are shown suffering in this well known mythological tale of the satyawaadi raaja. Prem Adeeb and Sumitra Devi are visible in the picturisation of this song. The actor playing the role of the old brahmin singing this song is Bipin Gupta.

Lyrics

honhaar balwaan re manwa

jad chetan muni maanav daanav

vidhi ka yahi vidhaan re manwa
honhaar balwaan re manwa
honhaar balwaan
honhaar balwaan re manwa
honhaar balwaan

bhaagy adheen bhatakte hain ye ae ae ae
sooraj chaand sitaare ae ae ae
karmyog se hi chalte hain
duniya ke kram saare
karm adheen badalte rahte
karm adheen badalte rahte hain yug yug bhagwaan re manwa
honhaar balwaan re manwa
honhaar balwaan
honhaar balwaan re manwa
honhaar balwaan
honhaar balwaan re manwa
honhaar balwaan

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye”(1963) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Only the audio of this song seems to be is available. I watched the full movie available online but I was unable to locate the song in that. So it could mean that either this song was excluded from the movie, or the song has been removed from the print available online. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. As of now, I assume that this song was excluded from the movie.


Song-Meri jaan meri jaan main jaanta hoon(Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye)(1963) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

“Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) was directed by Raj Khosla for Deep and Pradeep Productions, Bombay, the home production of Pradeep Kumar. The movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Shashikala, Rehman, B Nandi, Jagdeep, Nazeer Hussain, Tuntun etc in it.

This “social” movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised as a ghoda gaadi song, and the lip syncer is addressing the ghoda in this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

This social movie had five songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

The details of the songs discussed in the past are as under:

Here is the fifth and final song from “Do Bhai”(1969) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

HFGK mentions this song as one song, but the it appears twice in the movie. The part I or the “normal” song appears in the movie as the movie opening song. The slow “sad” version of it appears briefly as the movie ending song. The song plays in the background. Part I of the ong, in addition to being the movie opening song is a rail song as well because Ashok Kumar is seen travelling in trains for most part of the song. Likewise, the “movie ending” part of the song can be described as “court room” song because this part is picturised in a courtroom where Ashok Kumar dramatically appears all of a sudden as noble sacrificing characters tend to do in Hindi movies.

With this song, “Do Bhai”(1969) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. Movies with the same title were made in 1947 and 1961 as well and they have already been YIPPEED in the blog. So, with this song, all movies titled “Do Bhai”, viz. “Do Bhai” (1947), “Do Bhai” (1961) and “Do Bhai” (1969) have been YIPPEED in the blog. 🙂

The Indian general budget was presented day before yesterday on 1 february 2018. As happens on occasions like this, we had lots of discussions on this on social media. Here is one budget related observation that got forwarded on whatsapp:

Budget summary in three lines
-Lower class gets subsidy !
-Upper class gets Rebate !!
-Middle class only gets TV debates
🙂 🙂

It turns out that similar observations were made in a Hindi movie song as far back as in 1953. 🙂 The movie was “Daana Paani” (1953) which was directed by V M Vyas for Sunrise Pictures Production. The movie had Wasti, Meena Kumari, Shashi Kapoor Sr, Weera, Chhagan, Romeo, Radha Krishnan, Chitra etc in it.

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

This song is sung by Rafi. Kaif Irfani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohan Junior.

This Mohan Junior was not Madan Mohan (as is erroneously mentioned at some places), but a Gujarati gentleman. He was called Mohan junior because there was another Mohan, viz Mohan Sharma, operating in those days. These details have been dug out by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia when we discussed another song from this movie during 2011.

Only the audio of this light hearted song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Koi ameer hai koi ghareeb hai (Daana Paani)(1953) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Mohan Junior

Lyrics

koi ameer hai
koi ghareeb hai
jo hai donon ke beech
bada badnaseeb hai
jo hai donon ke beech
bada badnaseeb hai

koi kehta raam tujhe
koi rahmaan
koi kehta raam tujhe
koi rahmaan
tujhe hai sabki chinta aa aa
o bhagwaan
tujhe hai sabki chinta aa aa
o bhagwaan
koi bhookha marey
to koi mauj karey ae
koi bhookha marey ae
to koi mauj karey ae ae
likha toone ye kaisa naseeb hai
jo hai donon ke beech
bada basnaseeb hai

thhodi tankhwa
sar pe kunbe ka bhaar
thhodi tankhwa
sar pe kunbe ka bhaar
phate kapde jo dekhen
hanse rishtedaar
phate kapde jo dekhen
hanse rishtedaar
idhar apna ye haal
udhar bachchon ka pyaar
idhar apna ye haal
udhar bachchon ka pyaar
aisi zindagi to maut ke kareeb hai
jo hai donon ke beech bada badnaseeb hai
koi ameer hai

Song-Zindagi ki raahon mein…main akela jaa raha thha (Gauri)(1968) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

zindagi ki raahon mein
maut muskuraati hai
jaagne ki koshish mein
neend aayi jaati hai

Main akela jaa raha thha
kya khabar thhi mere peechhe
hai ghamon ka kaarwaan
Main akela jaa raha thha
kya khabar thhi mere peechhe
hai ghamon ka kaarwaan

pyaar maanga
pyaar paaya
do ghadi ke waaste
uljhanon ka haar pehna
dosti ke waaste
na main apna ban saka
aur na kisi ka ho saka
hai ajab meri daastaan
hai ajab meri daastaan
Main akela jaa raha thha
kya khabar thhi mere peechhe
hai ghamon ka kaarwaan

farz ka ye zahar kab tak
ae zamaane main piyoon
bebasi ki qaid mein
ae zindagi kaise jiyoon
aasmaan begaana thhahra
aur zameen bhi ajnabi
aur zameen bhi ajnabi
kaun hai mera yahaan
kaun hai mera yahaan
kaun hai mera yahaan
kaun hai mera yahaan

Series of Rafi songs-Rafi with music directors
—————————————————————-
(Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song
——————————————————————-
Part I-Arun Raghavan
—————————-
During his HFM career, Rafi worked with 14 music directors in more than 100 songs each. I describe them as Major music directors for Rafi or three figure music directors with Rafi. Then there were 45 music directors who composed between 11 to 99 songs with Rafi. We can call them semi major or two figure music directors with Rafi.

Major (viz three figure) music directors created 2743 song with Rafi, which is 53 % of all Rafi songs in HFM. The semi major (viz two figure) music directors created 1528 Rafi songs, viz 30 % of all Rafi songs in HFM. So we can say that the major and semi major music directors (59 in number) contributed a whopping 83% of all Rafi songs, which adds up to 4271 songs in all.

Then there were 170 music directors who worked with Rafi in less than 10 songs each. They were like the proverbial squirrels of Ramayan fame, who would carry a few grams of tiny pebbles each on their tiny paws while the giant vaanars would carry large boulders on their shoulders. The individual contributions of each of these music directors may be small in comparison to the major music directors, but the cumulative total of Rafi songs by these single figure music directors adds up to a figure of 503 ! This total is bigger than the career total of HFM songs sung by some well known playback singers, viz K L Saigal, Suraiyya, Talat Mehmood etc. And these songs contain quite a few wonderful songs as well.

I had discussed this fact while discussing a song on the occasion of Rafi’s birth anniversary. Raja, while commenting on that article had written –

“Just wondering if we have covered songs of all those 173 composers (1-9 songs category) here already? If not, that could be a project. Every composer who has used Rafisaab should be on the blog, even if the song being posted for that composer isn’t necessarily the Rafisaab one (if it is, of course better!).
That could be our way of showing our gratitude to that composer.”

I had taken note of Raja’s suggestion. And this writeup begins our series of articles about those music directors who were associated with Rafi in less than ten songs each. The name that I have chosen for this series is- pal do pal ka saath. This phrase is taken from that memorable qawwaali from “The Burning Train” (1981) containing this phrase.

In the beginning, I will discuss those music directors who have worked with Rafi in just one song each.

There are 48 such music directors. While most of them are small time less heard music directors, we have some rather well known names too in the list.

I decided to take up these names alphabetically. The first name that crop up in Alphabetical order is Aabid Hussain Khan who composed one Rafi-Zohrabai Ambalewaali duet in a 1949 movie called Last Message”(1949). While a few songs from this movie are available, the Rafi song , viz. “na thahar sake na tadap sake” does not seem to be available.

The next name that comes up alphabetically is Aparesh Lahiri (father of Bappi Lahiri). He has composed one Rafi song in a movie called “Subhash chandra” (1978). Since Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary is coming up next week, that would be the opportune time to cover this song.

The next name in the list of music directors is Arun Raghavan. He was a South Indian music director and he worked in just one Hindi movie. This movie, called “Mera Suhaag” (1961) was produced by Produced by N S R Mani and directed by H Krishnamoorthy for Secarts, Madras. The movie had Kanta Rao, Rajnala, Ramkrishna, K V S Sarma, A V subbarao, Balkrishna, Krisha Kumari, Girija, Rajshree, Hemlata etc. in it. In all likelihood, this movie was a remake of a south Indian movie where songs were re reccorded in Hindi. There were nine songs in the movie. Eight of these songs were sung by well known South Indian playback singers viz. P Susheela, S Janki and P B Srinivas.

But there was one song in the movie which was sung by Rafi. And that happens to be the one and only collaboration of Arun Raghavan as a music director with Rafi in a Hindi movie.

The song is penned by Vinod Sharma, who like the music director is an obscure name for this blog.

This song is a rare song. Only the audio of the song is available.

From the sounds of it, the song appears to be used as a background song in the movie.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

So much discussion on a song which is a rare and obscure song. Most sites dealing with HFM will struggle to find anything to write on this song. But trust us in this blog to treat most songs in general and songs like this in particular with so much care and respect, and we are able to come up with so many special things to say about songs like this.

This song is special for us for the following reasons:

1. This is the only occasion when Rafi has sung a song under the music direction of Arun Raghavan and under the penmanship of Vinod Sharma.

2. This is the 2800th Rafi song in the blog. It was a conscious decision on our part to use a Rafi song from a less known music directors to emphasize that they too have contributed their mite in enriching HFM.

3. With this song, “Mera Suhaag”(1961) becomes the 3800th movie to get represented in the blog. The same reason as given above applies here as well for considering this movie for this honour.


Song-Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath (Mera Suhaag)(1961) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Vinod Sharma, MD-Arun Raghvan

Lyrics

Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath
kaun samajh paaya uska dukh uske man ki baat
Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath

dharmraj ne drupad suta ko diya juye mein haar
harichandra ki raani taara bik gayi beech baazaar
bik gayi beech baazaaaar
Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath
kaun samajh paaya uska dukh
uske man ki baat

Shakuntala ko raaja bhoola
jiska thha vishwaas kiya
chhoti si thhi baat
Raam ne
Seeta ko vanwaas diya
Seeta ko vanwaas diya
Seeta ko vanwaas diya

tujhko bhi vanwaas mila hai
teri karun kahaani
kul maryaada raah mein teri
?? deewaani
tera dharm piya ko paana
?? tujhko mil jaaye
haan
?? tujhko mil jaaye
dukh ki kaali si raat kate
sukh ka sooraj muskaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye

Missing Films of 1960s – 43
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It was a great day yesterday. 🙂 The sun completed its journey cycle of the southern hemisphere, and slowly started to edge over the tilt of the earth’s axis and initiated its journey of the northern hemisphere. The Uttaraayan is initiated. The sun has moved from the ‘dhanu’ constellation to the ‘makar’ constellation, as per the Indian solar calendar. The cycle of seasons moves from Hemant to Shishir. It is the start of the abatement of the cold weather (in the northern hemisphere).

It is a day of great celebrations all over the country. It is the Lohri festival in northern states; it is Pedda Pandaga in Karnataka and Andhra; it is Pongal in Tamilnadu; it is Sukarat in the central states; it is Maagh Bihu in the eastern states. It is the month of Maagh as per the Hindu calendar. On this day of Sankraanti, it is ‘Maagh Mela‘ a big festival in the villages and the centres of pilgrimage. It is considered most auspicious to have a dip in the holy rivers at sunrise on this day. Special pooja ceremonies are held in homes and in temples. Special sweet preparations, and food preparations are done for today. ‘Khichdi’, a meal prepared from rice and lentils is a must preparation for the day. People of all regions will prepare these dishes in large volumes and distribute to one and all.

It is also the beginning of the New Year, as per the Hindu calendar. And so, another Happy New Year greetings to all friends and readers of this blog. 🙂

Yesterday, 14th January, 2018, was also a very very special day for Atul-Song-a-Day. Ah yes, the team messages have been going back and forth since about 10.30 last night. The blog has reached a milestone of fantastic proportions. At just about 11 pm last night (Indian Standard Time), the visitors ticker on the blog main page crossed over from the number 9,999,999 to the number 10,000,000 – signifying that the blog has counted its 10 millionth user. Over a period of 9 years, 5 months and 27 days (till 14th Jan, 2018), now more than One Crore (or Ten Million) visits have been made to this blog.

Folks from all over the world come to our blog in search of songs and music and authenticated information, and yes, accurate lyrics. By any standards, this is a unique web location on this planet. I have said this earlier too – it is an ever enlarging compendium of history of Hindi films and Hindi film music san pareil, anywhere. It is not just the songs that are important – we have such a depth of information that is collated with the rigours of a research project. In our collective humble opinion, no other web site can boast of such a large number of film synopses, film reviews, persona bio sketches, historical compilations, etc., relating to Hindi films and Hindi film music. And not just that, there is in depth articles on so many topics that relate to festivals, historical events, traditions, religious sentiments, eminent personalities – all the stories tied to and told through a film song. That is one accomplishment that surely will take a lot, even to imitate.

It is a ‘labour of love’, to borrow a phrase from our own blog masthead. And this labour of love is effected through a team of good people; people who have come together just for the love of music, and people who have selflessly contributed to this project which is now of gigantic proportions. And key here is ‘good people’ – who only argue with each other for the sake of establishing either the authenticity of information, or the correctness of lyrics 😀 😀 . When good people come together and put together their efforts – only good things will be the outcome. 🙂

I introduce to the readers today, this debut song from the film ‘Eid Ka Chaand’ from 1964. In my effort to bring out the missing films from 1960s, I have already crossed over into 1967. But as I continue to keep checking backwards, I find that more and more films and / or their songs, from this decade at least are becoming available in public domain. ‘Eid Ka Chaand’ is also one such film, from 1964, for which apparently I missed locating this song which, as per the date, was posted back in 2013.

‘Eid Ka Chaand’ is a film from Vakil Productions, Bombay and is directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of actors includes Vijay Dutt, Chitra, Krishna Kumar, Niranjan Sharma, Hiralal, Wazir Mohammed Khan, Maruti, Fazlu, and Sadiq amongst others. There are nine songs listed for this film. The songs are written by Kaifi Azmi, and the tunes are composed by Alla Rakha (aka AR Qureshi). Four of these are sung by Laxmi Shankar, which in itself is a treat for music lovers.

The song presented today in the voice of Rafi Sb. The song tells of the qualities of good people, and how they are favoured by the angels in the heavens. The sentiments expressed in these words are so much the fundamental tenets of the Islamic tradition, which in of itself, is a focus on the goodness of human beings.

So quite an appropriate song to pull together all the celebrations and the goodness of people we discussed above. May the Sun’s traversal into Uttaraayan bring together all the warmth of this time and these people into your lives.

Happy Makar Sankraanti and a Happy New Year to all.

 

Song – Bhalaai Duniya Ki Jo Subh O Shaam Karte Hain  (Eid Ka Chaand) (1964) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Kaifi Azmi, MD – Alla Rakha (AR Qureshi)
Chorus

Lyrics

bhalaai duniya ki jo
suboh shaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain

aaa aaa aaa aaa
khuda ki raah mein lutaate hain maal o zar apna
wo apne ghar ko samajhte nahin hain ghar apna
aaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaaa aaaaa
zameen pe reh ke falak par muqaam karte hain
zameen pe reh ke falak par muqaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain

haaan aaa aaan
unhen sukoon nahin milta kabhi ameeri mein
ke baadshaahi bhi karte hain wo faqeeri mein
haan aaaa aaaa aaaaan
museebaton mein wo umren tamaam karte hain
falak pe unko farishte salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain
falak se unko farishtey salaam karte hain
bhalaai duniya ki jo suboh shaam karte hain

भलाई दुनिया की जो
सुबहो शाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं

आsss आsss आsss आsss
खुदा की राह में लुटाते हैं माल ओ ज़र अपना
वो अपने घर की समझते नहीं हैं घर अपना
आssss आssssssss आsssssss आsssss
ज़मीन पे रह के फ़लक पे मुक़ाम करते हैं
ज़मीन पे रह के फ़लक पे मुक़ाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं

हाँ आंsss आंsssss
उन्हें सुकून नहीं मिलता कभी अमीरी में
के बादशाही भी करते हैं वो फ़क़ीरी में
हाँ आंss आंss आंsssssss
मुसीबतों में वो उमरें तमाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
फलक से उनको फरिश्ते सलाम करते हैं
भलाई दुनिया की जो सुबहो शाम करते हैं
