Today’s song is from the film Dasshera-56. It is a melodious bhajan by Mohd. Rafi. In the decade of 50s, Mohd. Rafi’s name was synonymous with melodious and popular bhajans. He must have sung at least 100 to 200 such Bhajans during this period.

The decade of 1950s was a Golden Period for Mythological and Religious films. As many as 124 mythological films were released during these 10 years, averaging One Mythological film every month for 10 continuous years ! That was a period when Joint family structure was still prevalent in India and every family had at least 2 to 3 old people. These seniors and the women folk were the captive audience for such films. They came in groups to the theaters. Usually a young person or a boy accompanied them. When I was a school kid, I was the caretaker of the group of these oldies. Since I myself liked the Mythological films, I would happily take up this job.

In Hindi films, there is a branding process- means the story of the film usually decided the cast of the film. For example. if it is a tragedy, first choice was Dilip Kumar among males and Meena Kumari among females. If it was a naughty comedy, it was surely Kishore Kumar. For Police stories, Murder and Mystery stories, Ashok Kumar or Pradeep Kumar were standard names. For Historicals, only Sohrab Modi would do and for costume, stunt or action films, it was Mahipal or Ranjan. Similarly, in the 1940s, for Mythologicals it was either Prem Adeeb or Trilok Kapoor while Mahipal or Manhar Desai were the names to go to during 1950s.

Likewise for music to village background films, it was Naushad, for social films it was Ravi and for Mythologicals / Religious films it used to be S.N.Tripathi or Avinash Vyas. Sometimes a misfit used to give us a shock. For example, from the beginning, Ashok Kumar was associated with social films acting the shy lover. Later from Kismat and Sangram, he switched to crime thrillers. But when he acted in a Historical film like Humayun-45 or a Mythological film Satyawan-Savitri-38, he made a laughing stock of himself !

Same was the case with Music Directors. Usually the composers identified with Religious films were not called for crime films nor were the composers of lilting club dances invited to compose for Religious films ! S.D. Burman became famous for his melodious and popular songs in films like, Baazi,Taxi Driver,H.No.44, Munimji, Funtoosh, Paying Guest etc. Can you ever imagine S.D.Burman composing tunes for a Mythological film ? But yes, he did give music to one ( the only one in his life) Mythological film ” Radha Krishna”-54. Sahir Ludhiyanvi was usually his favourite lyricist, but for this film he settled for Narndra Sharma and S. Athaiah. Still, The only song penned by Sahir for a religious film was from this film Radha Krishna. For this film, N.Datta was Burman’s assistant.

Later on N.Datta or Datta Naik became known for club songs and songs based on western instruments. He started with Milap-55 and Marine drive-55 and did Chandrakanta, Mohini, Mr. X etc In all these films, he was known to make use of western instruments like saxophone. Accordion etc. A composer like him was called upon to compose music for a Mythological film ” Dasshera-56″. Yes, he composed soft and melodious Bhajans and songs for this film. Later on in 1965 also he did another religious film “Gopal Krishna”, but he was passing through his bad phase at that time and so he had little choice . In his last days, he had no films and for survival,he used to work as an instrument player in other composers’ orchestra. When Laxmikant-Pyarelal came to know about his plight , they made him a part of their orchestra. He would be paid at his house even if he was unable to attend the orchestra.

Film Dasshera-56 had 11 songs. Rafi sang 3 very good Bhajans in it. Asha had 5 songs, and one song each was sung by Lata, Shamshad and Kavi Pradeep respectively. Usually N.Datta preferred Sahir for his songs, but in this film he used Pradeep for 10 songs and 1 song was written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. As usual, the Bhajan sung by Pradeep ” doosron ka dukhda door karnewale” became a hit and it was the most popular song of this film. Kavi Pradeep had a habit of providing tunes also along with his lyrics and he was always keen to sing his own songs. Most composers were averse to this habit of Pradeep and so they kept away from him. Actually Pradeep was a learned person and he had a good command over Hindi language. Still, because of this habit of thrusting his tunes on the music director and insistence on singing his songs, he only had a limited number of music directors to work with. Later on, he mostly wrote for religious and costume films and for those composers who welcomed his ready made tunes.

Pradeep was not the only lyricist to insist on his tunes. There was another Lyricist of eminence once upon a time, in the 1940s with similar inclination. He was Deenanath Madhok aka D.N.Madhok. He too provided tunes along with his lyrics. During his initial phase of career, Naushad used him to his advantage and once he acquired fame and name, Naushad discarded D.N.Madhok. Madhok too was not liked by many major self respecting composers.

For the film Dasshera-56, N.Datta’s assistant was Ramakant Paingankar, who was a long time assistant of C.Ramchandra. He is the same person who tried his hand at being a composer himself in the late 1940s. He gave music with Shyamsunder and Ramchandra Pal in Urvashi-46, with Lal Mohammed in Mitti-47 and with Karnad in Shadi se Pehle-47. It was in this film “Shaadi Se Pehle”(1947) that Rafi sang his first duet with Lata-” chalo ho gayee taiyyar-” . Ramakant gave music to film Rupiah-50 independently. Then he turned to Marathi films. In his last days, he came back to Hindi films again as assistant to many composers.

Now let us enjoy this beautiful bhajan, which I am sure, many of the readers will have remembered listening to in distant past.

PYAAS (1941) was produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone for Murli Movietone and it was directed by Ram Daryani. The star cast included Ishwarlal, Snehprabha Pradhan, Shamim, E Billimoria, Nazir, Gulab, Gope, Sharifa etc.

The film was reviewed in March 1942 issue of ‘Filmindia’ magazine. For a change, the reviewer has praised its director Ram Daryani for an all-round delightful entertainment through well-balanced ingredients of comedy, pathos, romance and music.

The story of the film is as under:

Rai Saheb Bhagwandas (Nazir) is a rich man with a modern outlook. His wife has been ailing for some time and is under the treatment of Dr. Sunderlal (E Billimoria) who plots to get rid of Rai Saheb’s wife and her child to install his niece Menaka (Sharifa) as his wife. The ailing wife suspects the plot and one day she runs away from home with her child. She walks to a nearby village and handover the child to the Village Chief.

After some days, a dead body of a woman is fished out from a river which turns out to be that of Rai Saheb’s ailing wife. He is heart-broken. He searches for the child but fails to find the baby. In the meanwhile, Dr Sunderlal has managed to get married his niece Menaka to Rai Saheb. Now, Dr Sunderlal starts blackmailing his own niece and manage to extract money from her.

The adopted child of Village Chief has now grown up as Chiman and finds a playmate Radha (Snehprabha Pradhan), the daughter of a village doctor. One day, Rai Saheb and his party come to the village for a picnic. Coincidentally, Chiman and Radha meet Rai Saheb who introduces Roop (Shamim), the daughter of Rai Saheb’s close friend, to both of them.

Chiman goes to the city and meets Roop and her elite circle of people. Chiman is fascinated by the glamour of the city. However, Radha compels Chiman to return to the village. At this stage, Relu, a village eccentric who secretly loves Radha, picks up a quarrel with Chiman and spills the beans regarding the mystery of his parentage. Chiman is devastated by the revelation and goes to the city to find out his real parent unmindful of the fact that Rai Saheb whom he has met is his real father.

During his search for his real father, Chiman meets Dr Sunderlal who tries to kill him by injecting some poison but is saved by Roop. Having completely exposed of his wrong doing, Dr Sunderlal commits suicide. Chiman is restored to his real father, Rai Saheb. Chiman, now a rich man, moves with Roop. Rai Bahadur is happy that Chiman is liking the company of Roop and holds an reception to announce the engagement of Chiman with Roop. During the reception, Chiman remembers Radha but under pressure, he has to reluctantly agree for the announcement of his engagement with Roop. Radha steps into the reception hall and Chiman runs towards Radha.

Now, there is a competition as to who would sacrifice the love for Chiman – Radha or Roop. Ultimately, it is Roop who sees Chiman’s emotional attachment to Radha and decides to give up her claim over Chiman. Radha gets married to Chiman.

The film had 9 songs, all written by D N Madhok which were set to music by Khemchand Prakash. Here is the first song from the film ‘jaake naina matwaale hain baal ghunghur waale hain’ to appear on the Blog. The song is sung by Ishwarlal, Shamim, Snehprabha Pradhan and Chorus. It is obvious that all the three have sung on themselves in the film. This is a typical song set in the background of love triangle in which Ishwarlal and Shamim sing Krishna song and Snehprabha Pradhan sings the song waiting for her ‘Sainyyan’ to return to her.

With this song, ‘Pyaas’ (1941) makes its debut in the Blog.

When it comes to Daaku Drama, our Hindi movie makers have cast their nets far and wide. They have made movies like “Daaku Bhupat”(1950), “Daaku Mansoor”(1934)/(1961), “Shera Daaku” (1966), “Daaku Mangal Singh”(1966), “Sultana Daku”1956/(1972), “Jagga Daaku”(1959), “Jwaala Daaku”(1981), “Daaku Maan Singh”(1971). Then there were titles like “Shareef Daaku”(1960), “Gentleman Daaku”(1961), “Jaadugar Daaku”(1962), “Beraham Daaku”(1959), “Bahaadur Daaku”(1966), “Diler Daaku”(1957), “Bhedi Daakoo”(1950) etc. There was a plain “Daaku”(1955)/(1975) as well. And for the sake of equal opportunity, we had “Daaku Haseena”(1987), “Daaku Bijli”(1987). Then “Daaku Ka Ladka”(1935),”Daaku Ki Ladki”(1954) were also there.

Then there were some movie makers who went global and looked for Vilaayati Daakoos as well. Their more favourite videshi daakoo is “Robinhood”. In fact “Lady Robinhood” is more popular with Hindi movie makers that even Robinhood. Movies called “Lady Robinhood” have been made in 1946, 1959 and 1995. Male Robinhood got two Hindi movies in comparison. One was “Sakhi Robin”(1962), where Sakhi means “kind” and not “saheli” as many people erroneously believe.

The other Robinhood movie was “Adventures of Robinhood”(1965). This movie was directed by B J Patel for People Pictures, Bombay. This movie had Prashant, Praveen Chaudhary, Neelofar, Bhagwan, Shyam Kumar, Vish Mehra, Vishwas Kunte, Gul Hamid, Hari Shukla, Shri Bhagwan, Saudagar singh, Dhanraj, Gopal, Jeewankala, Pal Sharma etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it. Like most B grade movies, it had A grade music and some of the songs of this movie became extremely popular. Cynical people like me could well be pardoned to believe that Robinhood spend more time singing romantic songs than robbing people.🙂

There were six songs in the movie. Five of these songs have been discussed in the past.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Adventures of Robinhood”(1965). This song is a rare song. In fact one visitor of this blog had given this song as his farmaish long time back.

This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kohli.

Here is this song, which is just as wonderfu to listen to as the other songs from the movie.

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

With this song, “Adventures of Robinhood”(1965) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Nasha rangeen aankhon ka (Adventures of Robinhood)(1965) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-G S Kohli

Lyrics

nasha rangeen aankhon ka

nasha rangeen aankhon ka

bahakti zindagi ke haath
kiske haath mein de doon

nasha rangeen aankhon ka

mere rukhsaar par bikhri
mahakti zulf hai aise
sharaabi chaand ke gaalon se
lipti ho ghata jaise
ke lipti ho ghata jaise
ghata resham ki
kisko pyaar ki barsaat mein de doon
bahakti zindagi ke haath
kiske haath mein de doon
main kiske haath mein de doon
nasha rangeen aankhon ka
kise saugaat mein de doon

sulagte hain jawaan saanses
adaa leti hai angdaayi
tamannaaon ne to jaise
machalne ki kasam khaayin
machalne ki kasam khaayin
machalti dhadkanen
kisko gulaabi raat mein de doon
bahakti zindagi ke haath
kiske haath mein de doon
main kiske haath mein de doon
nasha rangeen aankhon ka
kise saugaat mein de doon

Six songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the seventh song from the movie. This rare song is sung by Lata. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist and music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

Only the audio of this song is available. Going by the sounds of it, this song appears to be a mujra song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisaytion of this song.

“Beeswin Sadi”(1945) is an obscure movie which was produced and directed by M Bhawnani for Bhawnani Productions, Bombay. This movie had Motilal, Mazhar Khan, Nargis, Ashalata, Gope, Majumdar, Navin etc in it.

According to HFGK, there were fifteen songs in it. Singers are known only for two of these songs.

Here is the first song from “Beeswin Sadi”(1945) to appear in the blog. The singer for this rare song is not given in HFGK, but listening to this song leaves one in no doubt that this song is sung by Manna Dey. One also wonders how a song like this managed to remain obscure for this long.

Lyricist of this song (and for all the songs of the movie) is not known. Pannalal Ghosh was the music director. HFGK quoting Anil Biswas mentions that Anil Biswas had done most music related work in this movie.

With this rare gem, “Beeswin Sadi”(1945) makes its debut in the blog. This movie becomes the 600th movie from the decade of 1940s (1941 to 1950) to find representation in the blog. To put things in perspective, 1189 movies were released in this decade.


Song-Aansoo na bahaana kabhi aansoo na bahaana (Beeswin Sadi)(1945) Singer-Manna Dey, MD-Pannalal Ghosh

Lyrics

This movie on the English folklore of Robinhood had six songs in it. Robinhood singing romantic songs instead of going about their core competency of robbing people- this can only happen in Hindi movies.🙂

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the blog. Here is the fifth song from “Adventures of Robinhood”(1965). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kohli.

Unlike the earlier four songs discussed in the blog, only the audio of this song is available. I request our nowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song, which is one of the lesser heard songs from the movie.

Less heard this song may be, but it is just as hummable a song as the other better known songs from the movie.

Here is the first song from “Aage Kadam”(1943) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Motilal. Seeing that he acted in this movie, it is clear that the song was picturised on himself.

Lyrics were written by Kailash Matwala.

There were two music directors in this movie namely Master Madho Lal and Ramchandra Pal, but the distribution of songs among the two is not known.

With this song, “”Aage Kadam”(1943) makes its debut in the blog.

“Ek Roz”(1947) was directed by Dawood Chand for Gupta Art Productions, Bombay. The movie had Al Nasir, Nasreen, Saleem Raza, Asha Posley, Shamlal, Nafees Begum, Azmal etc. in it. There were nine songs in the film. Five of these songs have been covered in the Blog.

Here is the sixth song from “Ek Roz”(1947) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Dilshad Begam. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shyam Sundar.

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

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections wherever applicable in the lyrics.


Song-O bhoolne waale gham mein tere (Ek Roz)(1947) Singer-Dilshad Begam, Lyrics-Sarshar Sailaani, MD-Shyam Sundar

Lyrics

o bhoolne waale gham mein tere
o bhoolne waale gham mein tere
ham apna fasaana bhool gaye
dukh dard ne aisa gher liya
lab tak bhi silaana bhool gaye
o bhoolne waale gham mein tere

ae baad e saba
keh deeje zara
guzre jo unse kooche se ae ae ae
ik guinyyaan(?) ro ro kahti thi
ik guinyyaan(?) ro ro kahti thi
kyun laut ke aana bhool gaye
o bhoolne waale gham mein tere

ulfat to likh di kismat ne
taqdeer ke likhne waale ne ae ae
wo jinko diya thha dil hamne
wo jinko diya thha dil hamne
ulfat ko nibhaana bhool gaye
o bhoolane waale gham mein tere

ab kashti-e-dil ka khuda haafiz
manjhdhaar mein khewat rooth gaya aa aa aa
jeene ki tamanna chhod chuke
jeene ki tamanna chhod chuke
saahil pe aana bhool gaye
o bhoolne waale gham mein tere

“Pagli”(1943) was directed by Shankar Mehta for Maheshwari Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Padam, Asha (Posle ?), Kapoor, Aruna, Raza, Anjana, Ramesh, Nafees, Bhaag Singh, Hamida, Charlie, Mohini, Billoo, Deveshwar, Anand, Raj Monga, Kavita etc in it.

The details about this movie are quite confusing. The movie had four .
music directors in it, viz. Jhande Khan, Pt Govind Ram, Amir Ali and Rashid Atre. The movie had ten songs in it and music director wise breakup is known only for four songs. To add more to confusion, there were two lyricists in the movie, viz. Qamar Jalalabadi and Melaram Wafa. The distribution of their workload is not known for nine songs.

The only song in the movie that has “full” details in HFGK is the song under discussion. HFGK mentions this song as sung by Shamsahd Begam, penned by Qamar Jalalabadi and composed by Pt Govindram.

On listening to the song, I had difficulty believing that it was Shamshad Begam’s voice. Moreover, the uploader has mentioned the singer’s name as Naseem Akhtar. Though I am not very familiar with Naseem Akhtar’s voice, I have gone by that.

So, here is this song from “Pagli”(1943), the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the details of this movie as well as the song.


Song-Ummeed tadapti hai (Pagli)(1943) Singer-Naseem Akhtar, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

ummeed tadapti hai
ummeed tadapti hai
roti hai tamannaayen
ummeed tadapti hai
duniyaa kaa ishaaraa aa aa hai
duniyaa kaa ishaaraa aa hai
duniyaa se chale jaayen
duniyaa se chale jaayen

husn ki mehfil mein aen aen
ham aaye to kyun aaye
is husn ki mahafil mein aen aen
ham aaye to kyun aaye
yaa wo hi bane apne
yaa ham hi chale jaayen
yaa wo hi bane apne
yaa ham hi chale jaayen
ummeed tadapti hai

manzil pe jinhe aakar
manzil na nazar aaye
ae ae ae
ae ae ae ae ae
wo o bhoole huye raahi
jaayen to kidhar jaayen
wo bhoole huye raahi
jaayen to kidhar jaayen
ummeed tadapti hai

jab ashq machalte hain
aen aen aen
aen aen aen
jab ashq machalte hain
ik dard saa uthhtaa hai
ae ae ae
ae ae ae
tum aankh ko samjhaao
ham dard ko samjhaayen
ummeed tadapti hai
roti hai tamannaayen
ummeed tadapti hai
