This article is the 17400th song post for the blog.

Blog Day :

5307 Post No. : 17400

That moment is here again with us. The moment when we reach a century of songs in the blog and post a special song to mark the occasion.

What is so special, one may ask. We already have 173 such occasions in the blog.

Indeed we had 173 such occasions and this is the 174th century for the blog.

Still, I find this century somewhat different vis a vis other centuries in general, and with other recent centuries in particular.

If we look at the rate at which we have been clocked our centuries, here is what we observe

Time taken for century Number of occasions Date of First occasion (century number) Date of final occasion (Century number) Remarks
upto twenty days (Fast centuries) 65 5 January 2009 (5th century) 31 January 2015 (108th century) Fastest century in 11 days- 46th century on 9 september 2011)
from 21 to 40 days (Medium Fast centuries) 68 25 November 2008 (3rd century) 21 September 2020 (160th century)
from 41 to 60 days (Slow centuries) 26 5 November 2008 (2nd century) 27 March 2022 (169th century)
from 61 to 80 days (Very Slow centuries) 14 17 September 2008 (1st century) 31 December 2022 (173rd century) Slowest century in 77 days- 170th century on 12 June 2022
Total 173

We can observe that the last time we had a fast century (in 20 days or less) was on 31 January 2015, viz 8 years ago ! Even our last medium fast century (scored between 21 to 40 days) was more than two years ago. In other words, the centuries that we are scoring continuously for more than two years are all slow centuries that are taking between 41 to 77 days.

This century, which is achieved in 28 days becomes the fastest century in the blog since 23 march 2018, when century number 142 was scored in 26 days.

In addition, we achieve 100 posts in a month in a long long time. The last time it was achieved was in March 2018 (113 posts). Hopefully, this century will be just the shift in momentum and the shot in the arm for this blog that was badly overdue.

One can notice that majority of posts in this latest century are guest posts. Bulk of guest posts are by one single overenthusiastic contributor Avinash Scrapwala who contribured a whopping 53 posts out of 100 ! One fellow contributor jokingly commented that he has set up a post writing factory. 😄

There are 22 other guest posts as well. That makes it 75 guest posts out of 100 ! My own contributions were mainly in the form of Blog Ten Year Challenge posts.

As many as 29 posts introduced new movies to the blog ! Five movies got YIPPEED during this century. 14 posts were Blog Ten Year Challenge posts. Lyrics for most of these songs were sent by Prakashchandra.

As we add songs, the background work needed to manage them has increased considerably. That is one major reason that has prevented me to post more of my articles. Articles where I discuss some topics of interest have also dried up. Hopefully I will be able to restore them soon.

In all this discussion, I was almost forgetting about the song. It is a song that I had discovered a while back and I had earmarked it for some special occasion. Then I forgot all about this song. When Prakashchandra sent this song as blog Ten Year Challenge then I got reacquinted with this song. I resisted the temptation to post this song as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge.

This song is a joie de vivre genre of song that is bound to cheer up the listeners. This song is not by well known artists. Rather, this song is acreation of unknown artists. The singer is totally unknown,. She recently made her debut in the blog when another song from this movie was taken up as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge.

The music director and lyricists are also less known. That is how rare this song and its details are.

This song is from “Bulbul”(1951). This obscure movie was directed by A Rashid for Hindustan Productions, Bombay. This movie had Majnu, Rukhsaana, Dilaawar, Sarla Devi, Jyotsna, Maqbool, Mannan, Sheikh etc in it.

“Bulbul”(1951) had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog so far. This fourth song from “Bulbul”(1951) is sung by Suman Purohit, a singer about whom I know nothing. For that matter even the lyricist A Rashid is an unknown name. Music is composed by K S Ragi who is relatively better known since we had had a few of his compositions already represented in the blog.

Here is this wonderful song from “Bulbul”(1951). Rare it may be, but it has the effect of cheering up the listener every time one listens to it. It is a forgotten gem created by forgotten artists.

This post is the ninth post of thed day. That is yet another record for the blog for quite some time. The last time nine songs were covered in one day was on 31 july 2020. It is only the 43rdday (out of 5307 days) that nine songs have been posted in the blog. The record for a day is 13, however.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This year has begun well for the blog. Let us hope that we sustain this momentum throuyghout the year.

I take this opportunity to thank all our contributors, visitors, well wishers and music lovers who keep supporting this blog in one way or the other and keep providing the fuel to drive this musical bandwagon.

Blog Day :

5307 Post No. : 17392 Movie Count :

The Indian film industry has been absorbing and giving opportunities to all people in India, irrespective of their Caste, Culture, Language, Religion or Province. Maharashtra being ” The birthplace of Indian Film industry” (not my words, but a title of the English book by Isaq Mujavar), initially the film industry had a sizable majority of Marathi and Gujarati people. The Marathis had the talent and the Gujaratis had the money power. After some time, slowly people from all regions, religions and provinces joined the industry. By the time of the First talkie film came, the first film “Alam Ara”-1931 virtually reflected the representations of the variety of people operating in the film industry.

The producer director was a Parsee, the Hero was Marathi, the Heroine was a Muslim, the dialogue writer was a Jew and the cast included Punjabis, marathi, Hindu, Muslim and parsees. It even included an Afghani Muslim, who sang the first ever Hindi film song in the film. Indian films were made to entertain Indian people. No wonder along with Hindu Mythological films, many films with Muslim history and background were also made. Folk stories and Costume dramas were also popular. from 1931 itself, films with social content were made.

Majority films were based on Mythology, Romance, Folk stories, Costume films etc. Many films with Muslim backgrounds were made, but they were mostly on Mughal kings or Arabian Night stories. It is to be noted that the entire Hierarchy of Mughal Emperors has been the subject matter of Hindi films. Films were made on Taimur, Babar, Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shajehan, Aurangjeb and even Bahadur Shah Zafar. Comparatively muslim social films were less in the early era. The first ever known Muslim social film was Rashida-1935. There was no systematic effort to make Muslim Social films.

It is popularly believed that it was Mehboob Khan who made the first ever muslim social film, when he made the film ” Najma”-1943. It was his first film after he established his own Mehboob production and his studio. The film had prominent stars like Ashok kumar, veena, Sitara devi, Kumar and others. But this is not true. The honour of making a series of Muslim Social films must go to the Fazli brothers. Who were they ?

Today’s song is from the film Qaidi-1940. The film was produced by Fazli brothers, known to make films on Muslim background only.

The producers, Fazli brothers, were the sons of Khan Bahadur S M Fazal Rabb of Bahraich- about 125 kms from Lucknow in U.P. The elder brother was Hasnain and the younger brother was Sibtain ( born on 9-7-1916). Hasnain Fazli was born on 12-1-1912 in the United Province (today’s U.P.). Their family belonged to the noble Sayyads of Allahabad. Hasnain was a graduate of Allahabad University. Though his father was a Khan Bahadur, a Government Jahagirdar and lifetime Magistrate, Hasnain refused to do any service and did not complete his I.C.S. studies, as expected by the family.

He had a creative mind. He joined the film line. He was very keen on making a film on Muslim Society. In those days it was considered outrageous to produce a film on Muslim society for fear of the ire of the fundamentalists. However Hasnain broke the barrier and the first Muslim Social film Qaidi-40 was produced and directed by him under the banner of Film Corporation of India, Calcutta. Very cleverly, the film was made at Calcutta, ( though the film depicted life in Lucknow ), and not at Bombay to avoid any disruption in the making of the film. The film was made so well that it was received very well by all strata of the population, including the Muslims and became a hit film. After this Hasnain made more Muslim social films like Masoom-41, Chowringhee-42, Fashion-43 and Ismat-44. These films discussed Muslim family life and problems etc.

His first directorial film was in his 23rd year- Triya Charitra-35. Then came Sajiv Murti-35, in which Handsome Vijay Kumar from Himachal Pradesh was the Hero. Fazli brothers also made Dil-46, Mehendi-47, Duniya-49 and Khoobsurat-52. Hasnain was so talented that he himself wrote the film stories, screenplays and dialogues usually. Sibtain Fazli directed 3 films-Chowringhee-42, Ismat-44 and Mehendi-47.

After the Partition, Fazli brothers migrated to Pakistan. Sibtain remained in Pakistan and Hasnain returned to India to make 2 more films. Later Hasnain too relocated to Lahore and died there on 16-7-1957. His brother Sibtain ( 9-7-1916 to 25-7-1985) who had directed 3 films in India, made 4 films in Pakistan, including the most popular Urdu film of Madam Noor Jehan – Dupatta-52.

Film Qaidi was a Muslim Social film made by Film Corporation of India, Calcutta, to avoid disturbance by Muslim fundamentalists in Bombay. It was directed by Hasnain fazli, the elder brother. The cast of the film was Ramola, Mehtab, Nandrekar, Monica desai, Wasti, Leela Mishra Madhuri and others. Songs were written by Arazu lucknowi and the Music Director was Bhishmadev Chatterjee.

Prof. Acharya Bhishma Dev Chatterji. He was born on 8-11-1909 in Hooghly, West Bengal. He studied upto M.A. in English. He became a Teacher and taught English in a college. Few years after learning Music from stalwarts of Bengal, he left the job of teacher and joined Megaphone Record Company as a Composer. He used to meet Kidar Sharma in the Recording studio.

Taking permission from his company, he became a Music Director for his First film – Dil hi to hai aka Aulad-1939, made by the Film Corporation of India, Calcutta. He composed some Ghazals, which Ramola and Ramdulari sang. After this film, Bhishma Dev gave music to 3 more Hindi films – The Rise-1939, Qaidi-1940 and Hamara Hindustan-1940. All films made by Film Corporation of India and in Calcutta. This was the end of his Hindi film music .

Bhishma Dev was highly respected in Bengal for his knowledge of Classical Music. Even S D Burman learnt music from him. His nature was saintly. He cut many records on Dhrupad sangeet. I am not aware of his contribution to Bangla films.

Suddenly, one day, he left his job, work, music, family, everything and he became a Sanyasi. He remained so till he died on 8-8-1977.

The story of the film Qaidi-1940 was…..

There was a poor family of a Mother (Leela Mishra), Son Aziz (Nandrekar) and small sister Chanda (Madhuri). Aziz is B.A. but does not have a job. In frustration of not getting any job or a loan, he murders a rich man. His younger brother dies for lack of buying medicines. Aziz is arrested and jailed for 10 years. His mother and sister become beggars.

In the prison, Aziz assaults the jailor and runs away. To hide from the Police, he enters a rich man’s house and due to mental strain falls unconscious. The daughter of the rich man is Salma (Ramola). She nurses him. The rich man is a Dacoit. With his help, Aziz also becomes a dacoit and murder. Salma loves him. Laila (Mehtab), a dancer also loves him but not as a passion.

Police track Azizx. When they shoot at Aziz, Laila takes the shot on her and before dying in the arms of Aziz, reveals that she is Chanda, his sister and their mother has also died. She dies. Aziz tries to run away into a Mosque, but the Police fire on him and he dies in the Mosque.

Now let us listen to the song from the film Qaidi-1940. The singer is not known. This rare record was uploaded by Syed Zafar Shah, a close friend of our Sudhir ji.

( some of the information about the film Qaidi-1940 is taken, with thanks, from the book ” Forgotten movies on Muslim Culture” by P. Kamlakar ji).

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 12
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 27 January 2013, four songs from four different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7411 Bhagwaan do ghadi zara insaan ban ke dekh Bahaar (1951) Movie YIPPEED in the blog by now
7412 Aagaaz chala anjaam chala Raseeli(1946) 5 songs covered out of 10 by now
7413 Lo chhip gaya chaand Ham Panchhi Ek Daal Ke (1957) 4 songs covered out of 10 by now
7414 Qismat ke khel dekho dekho mere babu Chham Chhama Chham(1952) 9 songs covered out of 11 by now

We can observe that one movie (out of four movies) whose songs were covered in the blog on this day ten years ago has since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with three movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (27 January 2023).

“Rasilee”(1946) is the oldest movie among the three BTYC eligible movies. This movie was directed by Hanuman Prasad for Jai Bharat Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Radharani, Sushil Kumar, Kanhaiya lal, Ramesh Gupta, Anant Prabhu, Ranibala, Meghmala, Shanti devi, Ramlal, Shaamlal etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from “Rasilee”(1946) in the blog. Only audio of the song is available. The audio quality is very poor. It is difficult to make out several words. Even the voice of the singer is not regognisable. But going by the HFGK entry, this song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Gafil Harnalvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hanuman Prasad.

I request our readers with keener ears to help provide correct words in the lyrics wherever applicable.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 11
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 24 January 2013, six songs from six movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7395 Manmohan mukhda mod gaye Kashinath(1943) Movie YIPPEED in the blog by now
7396 Chal chameli baag mein kauwwe udaayenge Bulbul(1951) 2 songs covered out of 5 by now

7399 Jaa re jaa o harjaayee dekhi teri dildaari Kallicharan(1976) Movie YIPPEED by now
7400 The she I love Rafi NFS(1967) Century song for the blog

We observe that six songs were covered in the blog ten years ago on this date. The day culminated with a Rafi NFS which was the 7400th song for the blog. The previous century post was published on 31 December 2012. So it is easy to calculate that this century came in 24 days, which was slow by the then standards of the blog. 🙂 Well, well.

We also observe that four movies (out of five) whose songs were covered on that day have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with only one movie that is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

That movie is “Bulbul”(1951). This movie was directed by A Rashid for Hindustan Productions, Bombay. This obscure movie had Majnu, Rukhsaana, Dilaawar, Sarla Devi, Jyotsna, Maqbool, Mannan, Sheikh etc in it.

“Bulbul”(1951) had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the third song from the movie to appear in the blog. HFGK and every other online source, including the youtuber uploaders mention singers as Rajkumari and Suman Purohit. Do they not apply their own mind or do they not listen to the song themselves ? It is clearly a duet sung by a male and a female voice. Secondly the voice of Rajkumari is not there in the song. Thirdly, if one listens to the other songs of this movie and then compare those voices with the voices in this song, then it would appear that this song is sung by K S Ragi and Suman Purohit.

A Rashid is the lyricist. Music is composed by K S Ragi.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Chehra”(1946) was an obscure movie. Very little information is available on this movie. Our inhouse encyclopeadia, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, while discussing a song from this movie, had shared some rare information about this movie.

According to those details, T”Chehra”(1946) was directed by Rajendra Sharma for Upright pictures, Bombay. The movie had Najma, Kamal Jamindar, Suraiya Zulfi, Mustafa, Jugal Kishore, Kneez, Baby Anwari, Baldev Raj etc. All these actors were small time actors. The Suraiyya Zulfi in this movie was different from the famous Suraiyya.

This movie, which was released in 1947, flopped badly. The movie had nine songs and these songs ended up being forgotten. Even HFGK could not get much details about the songs of the movie. Singers of most of the songs were unknown according to HFGK. Gradually, the songs of this movie have become available online. This blog already contains four songs out of nine.

Here is the fifth song from “Chehra”(1946). HFGK is silent about the singer. Listening to the song , it is clear that it is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. I C Kapoor is the lyricist. Music is composed by M A Mukhtaar.

The lyrics are quite raunchy to listen to. Those days, songs with this kind of lyrics sometimes faced the ire of the censores. Apparently, this song had no such problem, seeing that this as well as other songs of this movie were hardly played on radio or loudspeakers so few people were even aware of these songs.

Only audio of the song is available. So it is difficult to guess how and on whom this song was picturised.


Song-Haath gore gore gulaabi rang waale (Chehra)(1946) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-I C Kapoor, MD-M A Mukhtar

Lyrics

Haath gore gore gulaabi rang waale

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1973-10)
——————————————-——————————

Today’s debutant movie from the year ‘1973’ is ‘Jaasoos Ladki’.

“Jaasoos Ladki-1973” was directed by P.S.S. Rao for ‘Suryodaya Pictures, Madras’. It was produced by S.N. Sinha and A.N. Sinha.

The cast of this movie included Krishna, Vijay Nirmala, Jyotilakshami and others.

Dialogues of this movie were written by S.N. Sinha and editing of this movie was done by K. Gopala Rao.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.06.1973.

Not much information about this movie seems to be available online as of now, though the audio of all songs and video of one song (not the song under disussion) is available online. (The video of one song available is a ‘blurred’ one).

I guess this movie was a dubbed movie from a south movie and an obscure one.

This movie has four songs written by Prem Dhawan and composed by Satyam.

Here is the list of songs in this movie :-

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Laa la la laa… aayi jawaani toofaani aayi Vani Jairam

04 Aa ja re dilwaale matwaale aa ja Vani Jairam

Today’s song is the duet song sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Vani Jairam.

Only the audio of this song is available.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us listen to today’s song now …

Lyrics for the today’s song are by Prem Dhawan and music is composed by Satyam.

With this song this movie ‘Jaasoos Ladki-1973’ makes its debut on the blog.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1981 – 1990 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (missing movies of 1974)
————————————

During my daily search for songs, I keep coming across many songs which are yet to be posted on the blog. Here I am referring mainly to songs from the decade of ‘seventies’ i.e., 1971-1980. Sharing songs from this decade (1971-1980) is my ‘foremost objective’, as this period is related to my growing years and nostalgia associated with movies and songs from these years.

There are still many movies from ‘1971 to 1980’ that are yet to be introduced on the blog. And I am always more than happy when I am able to share songs from such movies. In this category, there are several movies which are lesser known or have become obscure by now.

Today’s movie is one such lesser known movie that I came across during my daily browsing of HFGK.

This movie is “Ang Se Lagaa Le-1974”.

It was directed by Shiv Kumar for ‘Shiv Kumar Productions, Bombay’.

Shiv Kumar was also the producer of this movie.

It had Satish Kaul, Prem Narayan, Sheetal, Arjun Bakshi Gill, Master Guddu, M.D. Khan, Anand Kumar, Vishnu Prabhu, Surjeet Kumar, Dr. Vyas, Shakuntala, Anand, Bhola, Sulochana Chatterjee, Jalal Agha (in special appearance) and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board with ‘A’ certificate (restricted viewing( on 05.02.1974. (This movie is available on online platform where the certificate mentions that it is re-certified for ‘doordarshan’ on 10.11.1995.).

The title of the movies also mentions that this movie is ‘filmed entirely at Mysore State’.

Story Idea of this movie was by P.L. Kapoor who had also done the sound recording for this movie. This movie was written by Vijay Kaul.

Dialogues of this movie were written by P. Roy Choudhary and editing was done by Mohan Rathod.

‘Ang Se Lagaa Le’ has four songs written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and music for this movie was composed by Pradeep Roy Choudhary.

Following is the list of songs in this movie:-

S.No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Pyaar sajaao, bahaarein lutaao Asha Bhonsle
02 Dil mera dil, ye kahe, hosh chaahe… Kishore Kumar
03 Charnon mein tere jo aa ke giraa Asha Bhonsle
04 Baadal kaala, koyal kaali, us’se kaali raat hai Kishore Kumar

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar. It is lip-synced on screen by Satish Kaul. Prema Narayan is also seen in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics are by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and music is composed by Pradeep Roychoudhary.

I have listened to all songs of this movie, and they are nice songs. I had listened to today’s song for the first time more than a month back on radio in a programme on lyricist Naqsh Lyallpuri.

I have not watched this movie yet and I am not aware about this movie.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

With today’s song this movie ‘Ang Se Ang Lagaa Le-1974’ makes its debut on the blog. Also, Pradeep Roy Choudhary makes his debut as a music-director on this blog. He is present in the category of ‘lyricist’ on the blog with one ‘lyrics’ credited to him.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

#the Decade of Sixties – 1961 – 1970 #
————————————————————————

The song being presented in this post is a song from a movie released in the year ‘1965’. Regulars on the blog would remember that our Respected Sudhir ji had started a series called ‘missing movies of the sixties’ where songs from till then unrepresented movies were introduced. These songs were rare songs that were difficult to find and many of them were not not available online at that time.

I have noted in one of myrecent posts that many songs which were not available ten years back have since become available online thanks of the efforts of music lovers.

Today I came across one such movie viz ‘Chaar Chakram’ from ‘1965’ which had made its debut on the blog on 18.01.2018 under ‘Missing Films of 1960s’.

Today we will be adding the second song from this movie on the blog. Incidentally we are adding this second song exactly five years aftter the movie made its debut on the blog blog. If there was a ‘blog five year challenge’ then this would nicely fit int that category. 🙂

“Chaar Chakram” was directed by Sultan for ‘P.M. Pictures’.

It had Leela Kumar, Shyam Kumar, Tun Tun, S.K. Prem, Anjum, Fazalkhan, Kenny, Bob, Butter, Jilani, Ajit, Harun, A. Siddiqui, Hamida, Sabina, Lawrence, Chand, Doctor, Dawood, Amir, Mohammad Sandow, Ahmed, Zeenat, Puroshottam, Bhai Das, Iqbal and others.

This movie has four songs as per following details.

All the four songs of ‘Chaar Chakram-1965’ were written by Anjaan music was composed by Suresh-Talwar.

Here is the list of songs of this movie :-

S.No. Song Title Singer Posted On
01 O jaane jahaan milega kahaan Usha Timothi
02 O bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera Minu Puroshottam 18.01.2018
03 Aji yoon bigdo na sarkaar Mahendra Kapoor, Balbir
04 O baabu sun sun sun sun sun zaraa Asha Bhonsle Being discussed in this post

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle.

Video for this song is not available. I guess that the movie is not available either.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song sung by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics are by Anjaan and music is composed by Suresh-Talwar.

Editor’s note:- This song is the 400th song in the blog from movies released in 1965.
