“Ek Raat”(1942) was produced and directed by W Z Ahmad for Shalimar Pictures. The movie had Prithviraj Kapoor and Neena in lead roles with Mubarak, K N Singh, Feroza, Gulab, Prakash, Rajkumari Shukla, Bibi etc.

The movie had 8 songs. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

This movie was the debut movie of Neena (actual name Shahida) who was launched with an unprecedented media blitz and fanfare prior to the release of the movie. Mr Sadanand Kamath, while covering the first song of this movie has discussed this matter in detail.

Here is the second song from “Ek Raat”(1942) to appear in the blog. This rare song, like the earlier song, is sung by Neena. The lyricist of this movie (for 7 out of 8 songs), including for this song, was Pt Indrajeet Sharma, and not Pt Indra, as is erroneously mentioned in most onine sources.

Music was composed by S K Pal.

The song was picturised on Neena herself.


Song-Ye raag papeeha gaata hai (Ek Raat)(1942) Singer-Neena, Lyrics-Pt Indrajeet Sharma, MD-S K Pal

Lyrics

hum apne hi haathon se huye gham ka nishaana

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

Blog Day : 3471 Post No. : 13935

Today is an important day, maybe one of the most important day in the annals of Hindi film music. Today, 18th January, is the day the legendary Saigal Sb completed his mortal journey and departed from this world. After so much that has been written about him, any more contributions would simply be repetitions. But then, no matter how much we may write about him and his singing, it will never ever be able to express the complete emotions about him, and his voice. For one cannot fathom in words and language, that which is a gift of divine.

Ah yes, we can add something to the celebrity eminence of this occasion and this celebration. Readers and regulars are aware that the erstwhile considered lost film ‘Kaarwaan e Hayaat’ of 1935 vintage, has been traced and is now available. Today, I bring one more gem of an unheard song, for the listening pleasure of the multitude fans and lovers of Saigal Sb’s voice.

This song is a duet that Saigal Sb sings in accompaniment with Rajkumari. It is important to highlight that this Rajkumari is not the singer Rajkumari that most music lovers are familiar with. This is the actress-singer Rajkumari, who is also known by the name Rajkumari Kalkatta. (राजकुमारी कलकत्ता). In this film, she plays the role of the Shahzaadi – the Princess of Vijaypore. And yes, she is singing for herself in this song. The playback singing had not yet been implemented, and all songs were recorded live in the voices of the actors themselves.

To set the context of this song, let me add a brief of the storyline of the film.

Parvez (role played by KL Saigal) is the prince and heir apparent to the throne in his kingdom. However, he is less interested in the throne and becoming a king. He fancies an independent life and is seeking love, which is not a feasible thing to accomplish within the constraints of the palace life. And then the Queen Mother (role played by Shyama Zutshi) announces his betrothal with the Princess of Vijaypore. Considering this to be a setback to his life and dreams, Parvez quietly leaves the palace and goes incognito. He dresses up as a ‘banjaara’, changes his name to Naaju, and joins a band of travelling gypsies, in an effort to escape a marriage and a king’s life that he is not interested in. This secret is known only to his closest friend and sidekick, Suhail (role played by Bikram Kapoor), who is the son of the state’s prime minister (role played by Hamid).

To project a picture of normalcy, the palace keeps this news under the folds, that the prince has disappeared. As part of the matchmaking process, the Princess is supposed to visit the palace. The Queen Mother is unable to postpone this occasion. Efforts are being made to trace the Prince, and the Princess is given a go ahead to visit the palace per the agreed upon schedule.

But there is mishap waiting to happen. The Emir of Tikkim, another neighboring state, also wants to marry the same Princess. He has the Princess kidnapped as she is traveling to the palace. However, the fate intervenes in an interesting manner. The Emir has planned to hide in a safe place, within a group of people where no one would suspect. As fate would have it, he brings the Princess to the same band of gypsies, where Parvez is also hiding, masquerading as Naaju.

This congruency of fate puts Naaju (alias Parvez) and the Princess in each other’s company, and they fall in love. However, the secret identity of Naaju is not revealed to the Princess (till the end of the film). She believes she is in love with a handsome gypsy who sings very well.

In this clip, the amorous overtures of this pair of love birds are continuing. They are at the gypsy camp. The Princess had heard the singing of Naaju. She falls in love with this voice, and calls for him to visit her. That is when this song happens.

This song is a set of four couplets of a ghazal. Both the Princess and Naaju, are expressing how the love for the other in their hearts is giving them sleepless nights and aches in the heart. The exchange progresses somewhat as follows,

ab kaise chhupaaun main dil ki baat
kaati tadap kar saari raat

Pray tell me how
I am not able to contain within
The matter of heart that so engage me
I am having sleepless nights
I spent time writhing with pain in my heart

ulfat mein teri kitna roya
bin saawan aayi barsaat

I am faring no better, o dear one
My eyes are weeping
Being separated from my love
It is as if the monsoon rains
Have descended into my eyes
When it is not even season for rain

kisi ke ek hi naghme ne ashqbaar kiya
sukoon e kalb liya gham se hum-kanaar kiya

It is just one song that I heard
That has made me shed tears (of longing)
My peace and tranquility has been removed
And am now connected with sorrows (of separation)

na taab e zabt rahi mujhko na taaqat e fariyaad
khizaan ne gulshan e hasti ko be-bahaar kiya

My sense of restraint and my composure is lost
I have lost my power to even make an entreaty
The autumn has descended
Upon the garden of my being
And has made it bereft of spring

Let us listen to this rare treat of Saigal Sb’s voice. A song that has so far been considered lost, is now being shared for the pleasure of all music lovers.

[Ed Note: At the end of the clip, it appears as if the song is abruptly cut off, and possibly it is not complete. However, I have checked with the copy of the film booklet, which has so graciously been shared with me by Harmandir Singh ji ‘Hamraaz’. On referring to this booklet for checking the completeness of the lyrics, it is determined that this song is complete, with just a tiny blip at the end.]

 

Song – Ab Kaise Chhupaaun Main Dil Ki Baat  (Kaarwaan e Hayaat) (1935) Singer – Rajkumari, KL Saigal, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Mihir Kiran Bhattacharya

Lyrics

ab kaise chhupaaun main dil ki baat
ab kaise chhupaaun main dil ki baat
kaati tadap kar saari raat
kaati tadap kar saari raat
ab kaise chhupaaun main

ulfat mein teri kitna roya
ulfat mein teri kitna roya
bin saawan aayi barsaat
aaa aaa aaa
bin saawan aayi barsaat
ab kaise chhupaaun main dil ki baat

kisi ke ek hi naghme ne ashqbaar kiya
kisi ke ek hi naghme ne ashqbaar kiya
sukoon e kalb liya gham se hum-kanaar kiya
sukoon e kalb liya gham se hum-kanaar kiya

na taab e zabt rahi
mujhko na taaqat e fariyaad
na taab e zabt rahi
mujhko na taaqat e fariyaad
khizaan ne gulshan e hasti ko be-bahaar kiya
khizaan ne gulshan e hasti ko be-bahaar kiya

अब कैसे छुपाऊँ मैं दिल की बात
अब कैसे छुपाऊँ मैं दिल की बात
काटी तड़प कर सारी रात
काटी तड़प कर सारी रात
अब कैसे छुपाऊँ मैं

उल्फ़त में तेरी कितना रोया
उल्फ़त में तेरी कितना रोया
बिन सावन आई बरसात
आ आ आ
बिन सावन आई बरसात
अब कैसे छुपाऊँ मैं दिल की बात

किसी के एक ही नग़मे ने अश्कबार किया
किसी के एक ही नग़मे ने अश्कबार किया
सुकूने क़ल्ब लिया ग़म से हम-किनार किया
सुकूने क़ल्ब लिया ग़म से हम-किनार किया

ना ताब ए ज़ब्त रही मुझको

Blog Day : 3469 Post No. : 13928

The New Year according to Gregorian Calendar started 16 days ago on 1 january 2018. Like most people, we too made new year resolutions. Unlike most people, our new year resolutions of posting one “debutant” song and one “YIPPEE” song daily is still being followed regularly.

Day before yesterday (14 january 2018) was Makar Sakranti and that marked the beginning of another new year, viz Hindu new year. Why we should not make new year resolutions on this occasion as well. In our case, we can resolve to continue our new year resolutions of Gregorian calendar new year. 🙂

The commencement of Hindu new year coincided with the blog clocking one crore (ten millions) visitors to the blog. Is it a coincidence that it happened on this day ! Or is it divine scheme of things. The blog began just under ten years ago on 19 july 2008. Why this date and no other day ? It was much later (in fact only in 2017) that I realised that the Hindu month of Shrawan had started on 19 july 2008, which traditionally provided the most number of songs to HFM. So, I feel that the same divine scheme of things were being played out and implemented at that time as well.

That is not all. Much later, we posted out song post number 11111, which discussed a special song that had voices of four legendary singers. When Sudhir Ji, the author of that wrteup looked back at the blog posts number 1, 11, 111 and 1111, he discovered an amazing pattern. These four songs were solo songs sung by the same four singers, and in the same order in which they lend their voices in the song post number 11111 !

That is not all. I have noticed coincidences involving me that are even more amazing, and they are not limited to this blog. I have shared one amazing coincidence with my friends (including some in this blog as well) that will convince people that these coincidences are some grander scheme of things planned by higher forces. 🙂

Coming to my observations that we need to reiterate our new year resolutions (Gregorian calender version) on new year (Hindu calender version) as well. On the first day of this year (viz Yesterday 15 january 2018), only the first half of the half the resolution (viz posting a debutant song for the day) was fulfilled till late in the night. Sudhir Ji had posted a “debutant” post for the day. I had noticed that he had planned for a “YIPPEE” post as well. But seeing that the “debutant” post had appeared so late, I was afraid that it might become a race against time to fully fulfil the new year resolution. So I decided to lend a helping hand to Sudhir Ji. I prepared this “YIPPEE” writeup and I decided to post it in case Sudhir Ji was strapped for time (which he certainly is these days).

Fortunately, I found that Sudhir Ji succeeded in posting the YIPPEE writeup just in the nick of time yesterday night, and it was that rollicking title song of “China Town”(1962), viz. Rangeen bahaaron se hai gulzaar China Town.

So the song that I had kept as the backup YIPPEE song was not required.

Today (16 january 2018), we find ourself in the same situation as yesterday. The “debutant” movie of the day was done and dusted with first thing in the morning by Sudhir Ji. Sudhir Ji then asked me for the list of YIPPiable movies, aiming to post the YIPPEE movie of today as well, while I concentrated on the O P Nayyar tribute post.

After the O P Nayyar tribute post was published late, I found that Sudhir Ji has prepared for the YIPPEE song of the day, and it was a song that was not available online as far as I can tell. But like last night, we are against racing against time and I do not find Sudhir Ji at the keyboard right now. So I feel that I need to step in and publish the backup YIPPEE song that I had prepared yesterday. That way, Sudhir Ji can publish his YIPPEE article on the next day.

The song that I have in mind is from “Khazaana”(1951). It is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

This song, the eighth and final song from “Khazaana”(1951) is a “joie de vivre” song sung on a moonlit night by a lady in love. This must have been the brief by the music director to the lyricist and what superb lyrics Rajinder Krishan comes up with. And the rendering of this song is divine. After listening to the honey like voice of Lata, I would not like to listen to this voice in any other voice. This is inspired singing at its peak.

“Khazaana”(1951) was produced by Bakshi Jang Bahadur and directed by M Sadiq for Bakshi Brothers, Bombay. This movie had Madhubala, Nasir Khan, Gope, Om Prakash, Cuckoo, Ramesh Thakur, Gujri, Abbas etc. in it.

So going by the cast, it is clear that this song was picturised on Madhubala. Lata singing and Madhubala lip syncing. It would have been a sight for the eyes if the video was available. But it seems that only the audio of this song is available and that too has ended up becoming an obscure song with time. The song deserves to be much better known among music lovers. It is an archtypical “chhaayaageet” song, best heard at night time, with majority of people fast asleep in the comforts of their “razaai”. 🙂

With this song, “Khazaana”(1951) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘इ’ – इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो

 

मेरी आवाज़ के पीछे चले आओ
चले आओ
चले आओ॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, only if it were possible in this physical world. The only recourse is to listen to the recordings. That charisma is going to remain alive, till the time there is music on this earth. The magic of Rafi Sb’s voice will never cease.

Moving ahead with the next instalment of this series. Picking up next letter ‘इ’, I bring to the blog this wonderful favourite song, which has become a rarity these days. I could not find this song online. Another collector in his own channel has, with deliberation, posted a very short clip of this song. I can see comments from other listeners, requesting for posting the complete song. But of course, some people, you know. . .

The song is from the film ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’ from 1962. The film is produced under the banner of Roopvani Films and is directed by Vasant Painter. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Indira, Heeralal, Ratnamala, Pal Sharma, SK Shukla, Baby Shobha, Kalpana, Mohan Choti, Arun, and Polson amongst others.

Only four songs are listed for this film. The songs are written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music direction is by Sudhir Phadke.

In this song, the voice accompanying Rafi Sb’s, is of Asha Bhosle. The song has such an endearing flow, and when it comes to end after two antaraas, it seems almost abrupt. It builds into such a comfortable listen that, when it ends, the feeling it leaves behind is – ‘it ended too soon, there should be more’. Simple words, simple melody, rendered with deliberate softness and slowness. What a lovely song which is full of sadness of separation. Very touching.

Song – Is Jag Mein Kahin Bhi Rahiyo (Pyaar Ki Jeet) (1962) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

ye lahu nahin hai pag mein
aasha ka lahu behta hai
tum sun jo sako to sun lo
beh beh ke tumhen kehta hai
aasha ko tod na jaiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

is lahu ko ik din sajni
sindoor banana hoga
teri maang sajaani hogi
doli mein bithaana hoga
us din ki khoj mein rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

ये लहू नहीं है पग में
आशा का लहू बहता है
तुम सुन जो सको तो सुन लो
बह बह के तुम्हें कहता है
आशा को तोड़ ना जइयो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

इस लहू को इक दिन सजनी
सिंदूर बनाना होगा
तेरी मांग सजानी होगी
डोली में बिठाना होगा
उस दिन की खोज में रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

Lyrics

meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
sur saat re man bhaat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

pahle sur ne li angdaayi
bas gaya man mein harjaai
dooje sur baaje shahnaayi
dooje sur baaje shahnaayi
mil gayi man ko maat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

teeje sur mein dil ki dhadkan
kaanp gaya bholi ka tan man
chauthhe sur mein baithha dekho
chauthhe sur mein baithha dekho
koi lagaaye ghaat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat

koi khada ye soch raha hai ae ae
koi khada ye soch raha hai
baaqi suron mein kya rakkha hai
soch sako to itna jaano
soch sako to itna jaano
badlenge din raat re
meri veena ke sur saat re
meri veena ke sur saat
