Hullo Atuldom

Remembering our very own Abhas Kumar Ganguly with this post on his death anniversary. It is 34 years since he bade goodbye to this mortal world but his works are still with us- his fans and followers.

He was a versatile singer, actor, writer, producer, director, composer etc. In short an all-rounder who was the voice of many generations of actors beginning with Dev Anand for whom his voice was first used in 1948. World over, lovers of Hindi film music just love and adore this artiste and he himself was a huge fan of the actor-singer of the early-talkies and films of the ’30s and ’40s- K.L. Saigal. Abhas Kumar Ganguly had a great respect for the poet/ musician Rabindranath Tagore.

He could sing an ‘eena meena deeka’ with the same ease as he sang ‘koi humdum na raha koi sahara na raha’. His fans loved his voice on Ashok Kumar, Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jeetendra and every single actor that graced the silver-screen from 1948 (when he made his debut) to 1987 (till death took him away from us). There were some actors of the older generation (meaning ’50s and ’60s) who had other singers as their permanent go-to voice; but Kishore Kumar (as Abhas Kumar Ganguly was popularly called) sang for these people in the later part of their careers- post 1970, I mean to say. Kishoreda’s voice was used for the next generation of actors too meaning Dharam’s son Sunny, Rajendra Kumar’s son Kumar Gaurav, Sunil Dutt’s son Sanjay Dutt , and all of Raj Kapoor’s sons etc. in addition to the new entrant actors of the ’70s and ’80s like Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff etc. I have a feeling that if he had been around then the Khans of the ’90s would have sounded different but that was not to be.

It is Sharad Navaratri and so I searched for a song/mata bhajan to go with this post. I am not sure how many songs Kishoreda has sung in this genre, but I do remember there are a few under Bappi Lahiri and Laxmi Pyare’s music direction in some ‘made in South India’ films.
Today’s is from the 1986 release “Swarag Se Sundar”. On-screen Jaya Prada and Jeetendra lip-sync to Kishoreda and Lata didi and appeal to the Devi maa to cure the child of their family, of whatever ailment it is suffering from; the “dawa ki nahin, dua ki zaroorat hai” situation (I have seen this movie a few times over the years, the child is shown to have high fever).

“Swarag Se Sundar” was a movie directed by K. Bapaiah, had dialogues by Kadar Khan, songs written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi-Pyare were the music composers. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar were the playback singers used. Mithun Chakraborty and Padmini Kolhapure played the second couple with Shubha Khote, Aruna Irani, Shoma Anand, Kadar Khan, Prem Chopra, Asrani, Bharat Bhushan, Satyen Kappu etc in supporting cast.

The other day, Madhuri Dixit’s birthday was celebrated on the blog and it inevitably reminded me of many of her songs. This is one song from the film ‘Ram Lakhan’ (1989), which is never out of mind, though has been out of sight for many years now. This was in 1989, and my mother and elder sister were already fans of Anil Kapoor. I was not a fan and would call him some uncharitable names, not unprintable but will not mention here. The era of seeing every Amitabh Bachchan film was over, and Subhash Ghai, the producer director of this film was a big name. He was so big that he got to name a few of his heroines, rechristen them literally. Meenakshi, Madhuri and Manisha, Mahima etc. He was fixated or superstitious about naming the heroines beginning with the letter ‘M’. I have seen very few Anil Kapoor songs appearing in the blog. Some newer songs are here, but the many films he did in his earlier period, especially of his jodi with Jackie Shroff, are not here at all. Same is the case with Madhuri Dixit.

Film magazines like Stardust and Filmfare, were still the popular medium of reading and gaining knowledge, useful as well as not so useful. I can say for sure that it has been decades, since I have seen a film magazine in any language. Even doctor’s dispensaries don’t have them. I personally don’t know anyone who buys/reads any such magazines, or if they grace the center-table in any living rooms nowadays. Quite a fall for these publications really. Absence of television has helped, so that I am not even aware of the winners of Filmfare awards these days.

The song in question is a well composed, written and sung, sort of a filmy situation ‘bhakti’ song. Madhuri Dixit is the highlight, as only she could be. Laxmikant-Pyarelal have given a dekho, a ‘retro’ of ‘Pakeeza’ soundtrack and their own ‘Sargam’ soundtrack in the interlude music. The team of Anand Bakshi & L-P were a pro at creating such situational songs. And Lata Mangeshkar was still the backbone of any L-P score, be it the films of the South or Bombay.

What is happening here is the engagement party of Madhuri Dixit, sort of, with Amrish Puri’s son. Jackie Shroff is a police officer, playing the title role of Ram and Anil Kapoor is the younger brother Lakhan. Madhuri is forced to accept this alliance by her father Anupam Kher, with no help from Anil Kapoor, who is away on training as Police Inspector. So, when Madhuri is asked to perform in front of the guests, she starts the bhajan, remonstrating with the Almighty, and complaining to Ram present in the party, directly. Another highlight of the song is the way Jackie Shroff is seen to be preening (in his fine feathers) almost, as the addressee and the brother of Lakhan.

Anyway, when it is Lata Mangeshkar, who is crooning “Ho Ram ji ee eee”, and Madhuri Dixit is on screen, performing, who can stay unmoved.

When I was about 15 year old, I saw Dev Anand for the first time. Not on screen, but in person. I had gone to my Uncle, who was an assistant Police Commissioner in Bombay that time. Through his contacts, we attended a shooting of Dev’s film. After this I saw Ashok kumar, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor and many other actors and actresses in person at various times. Though I did not speak to any cine artiste in those times, I have seen them with my own eyes. So, I had access to their first hand information, their films, songs, music etc. All the material was available in film magazines, newspapers and also in books. If I had wanted to write about them at that time, all the material was available – all credible,genuine and full of facts which could be corroborated or checked with them or with persons close to them……

CUT to old times, like the 30’s and the 40’s….

I was not living in those times and it is almost impossible to find a cine artiste alive who worked in films of the 30’s or 40’s. So today, if I want to write about those artistes,films,
music, songs etc of the bygone era, what should I do ? To get the right, genuine and credible information, I must depend on historical documents like books, newspaper cuttings, old film magazines or collect information from the sons/daughters or near relatives of old time artistes.

None of today’s old film writers were living in those times, and they have to depend on materials listed above. Due to the advent of and easy availability of the Internet, many sites and Blogs are available. Some of these sites proclaim themselves as a store-house of information on old films and music. At one time I had found and listed some 110 such sites. The problem with these sites is that they hardly give any information other than what is given in the HFGK. There are many authors who consider themselves as Experts and have brought out books on old films and artistes. Such books are available in almost all languages.

While some books genuinely provide research based credible information (it shows in their writings itself) on old films, many books churn out recycled half-true information collected from Internet sites. I have a collection of many books in many languages, but barring few books most others are of no use. Sites like IMDB, Wikipedia, Gomollo etc are not trustworthy. The reason is, Wikipedia is a site where anyone can upload, update, add or delete information. Unfortunately many enthusiastic new and fresh entrants of old films, present their data on Wikipedia.

I quote an example. The actress-singer Nirmala Devi (mother of actor Govinda) was born in a Hindu family in Banares. Someone changed this on Wikipedia and added that ‘ she was a Muslim and her name was xxx’. Dr. Surjit Singh ji immediately corrected this matter and wrote about her parents and that she was a Hindu. This was published. After some days, this was again changed to Muslim. This alternately went on for some time. Now imagine a New enthusiast of old films getting wrong information or getting confused with information from Wikipedia, this way.

IMDB is notoriously famous for mixing up information and filmography of artistes, who are members of ” Same -Name -Confusion” group. Any number of letters for correction are neither replied nor information corrected on IMDB. Thus bad quality information is passed on to seekers. In this respect Cineplot and muVyz are much better. They take immediate action to rectify mistakes, if you write to them with correct information with proof.

There was a film ” Bramhachari “-1938, in which Master Vinayak and Minakshi Shirodkar were the lead pair. Internet site Gomollo gives the name of Minakshi Seshadri as its Heroine in 1938 ! When Shamshad Begum aka Chhamia, mother of actress Naseem Bano died, one site declared that singer Shamshad Begum had died in 1998 ( she actually died in 2013). Both these examples are still on the sites, if anyone wants to check both sites.

Therefore, my advice to people who are eager to write about old films is to be careful and to corroborate your information with other sources or books or an expert to confirm that you have the right information. When film titles are repeated many times in different years, mistakes about the cast etc becomes common. Films with the title ” Insaf” were made 7 times from the 30’s to the 90’s !

Finally, a point. Like any History, old film history also gets updated as and when new documentary evidence becomes available. So what was written earlier, with good faith, becomes wrong ! I have experienced this. Some of my comments in 2011 and 2012, on this Blog, have been rendered wrong, because new information became available. Some examples are 1. Singer of song ” Dilli se aaya bhai Tingu” (film Ek thi ladki-49), 2. Singers of ” Bharat ki ek sannari ki” (film Ramrajya-1943), 3. Child actor Rajkumar Khatri (film Sautela Bhai-62) etc.etc.

Today’s song is from the film Dhiraj-1942. It’s cast consists of names like Sitara, Noorjehan, Khatoon, Rajkumari and Ibrahim – who are all members of “Same Name Confusion.” There were 2 Sitaras, 3 Noorjehans, 2 Khatoons, 4 Rajkumaris and 2 Ibrahims. Now if someone wants to write about one of these artistes, he will have to be very specific and careful.

The song is sung by Gyan Dutt, MD of the film himself. Gyan Dutt composed 604 songs in 58 films as MD, he sang 15 songs in 9 films and he wrote song lyrics of 13 songs in 3 films. With today’s song, film Dhiraj-42 makes its Debut on this Blog. This rare song was given to me by shri Abhay Jain ji and it was uploaded by Sadanand Kamath ji. Thanks to both.


Song- Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan (Dhiraj)(1942)Singer-Gyan Dutt, Lurics-Pt Indra, MD-Gyan Dutt

Lyrics

Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan
Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan
teri kya hai jaan pehchaan
Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan
teri kya hai jaan pehchaan
Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan

kabhi kabhi meri aah sune tu
kabhi na sune pukaaar
kabhi kabhi meri aah sune tu
kabhi na sune pukaaar
kahin band darwaaze tere
kahin khule hain dwaar
kahin band darwaaze tere
kahin khule hain dwaar
tera kya hai naam nishaan
Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan
teri kya hai jaan pehchaan
Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan

bade aadmi gulaab jal se
tere paanv dhulaaye
bade aadmi gulaab jal se
tere paanv dhulaaye
ham to baarah maas aapse (?)
ganga jal bhar paaye
ham to baarah maas aapse(?)
ganga jal bhar paaye
kyun phir bhi maan gumaan
Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan
teri kya hai jaan pehchaan
Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan
teri kya hai jaan pehchaan
Tu kaisa hai Bhagwaan

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 124 # Missing Films of 1971- 03#
——————————————-————————————————-—

“Brahmaa Vishnu Mahesh-1971” was directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Nitin Pictures, Bombay’.

It was a ‘mythological’ movie. It had Mahipal, Uma, Trilok Kapoor, Sulochana, Raj Kumar, Sulochana Chatterjee, Anant Tiwari, Dulari, Manhar Desai, Padmarani, B.M. Vyas, Madhumati, Kavita, Neelam, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Shefali, Suryankant Shukla, Bhagwat, Vishwas, Radheshyam, Lakhani, Murari, Master Rajesh, Bakul, Soni, Habib, Mahesh Bhatt, Jeewan in the role of Naradmuni and many others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.08.1971.

This movie had seven songs written by Indeevar (three songs) and Bhagwat Dutt Mishra (four songs).
Music for this movie was composed by S.N. Tripathi.

As per HFGK Vol-V following is the list of songs of this movie;

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Saare jag ka ek hai Ishwar … B.D. Mishra Manna Dey, chorus
02 Swami tumhi ho, sakha … ho ke
03 Jhanana jhanana jhanke paayal …
04 Pag mere doley re paayal chhanke
05 Saare sukh chhode pati ko na chhode B.D. Mishra Manna Dey
06 Mere bhaagya ke vidhaataa B.D. Mishra Mohd Rafi
07 Aaj meri hai parikshaa laaj rakh le B.D. Mishra Suman Kalyanpur

*(HFGK mentions the lyricists name against the four songs as given above, so I guess that the other three songs are written by Indeevar).

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. I am unable to identify the actor lip-syncing this song.
Music is composed by S.N. Tripathi and lyrics are by Bhagwat Dutt Mishra.

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

With this movie ‘Brahmaa Vishnu Mahesh-1971’ makes its debut on the blog and we add one more missing movie of the year ‘1971’ to the blog.

ho koi teri shakti ko aaj lalkaare
sun sun paalan-haare
koi teri bhakti ko aaj lalkaare
ho koi teri shakti ko aaj lalkaare
sun sun paalan-haare ae

On our blog we have as many as eleven movies containing the word ‘Doctor’ in their titles.

Three of these eleven movies have already been YIPPEED. 😊

Here are the status of these movies in the blog:-

Movie Name Year Songs covered/status of the movie on the blog
Naqli Doctor 1933 1 of 14 songs posted
Dr Madhurika 1935 1 of 9 songs posted
Doctor 1941 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Dr Kumar 1944 1 of 8 songs posted
Lady Doctor 1944 1 of 10 songs posted
Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani 1946 3 of 7 songs posted
Dhobi Doctor 1954 2 of 7 songs posted
Dr Z 1959 3 of 8 songs posted
Dr Shaitaan 1960 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Dr Vidya 1962 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Doctor X 1972 1 of 6 songs posted

Today we are going to listen to a song from the movie ‘Doctor-Z’ of the year 1959.

I had come across a song of this movie sung by Rafi Saab long back (in 2014) when I was contributing lyrics on daily basis 😊 However this song missed out from being covered on the blog.

When I came across this song for the first time I was wondering if there was a movie with such title? But then, why not? we already have a ‘Doctor-X’. Then we have a ‘Dhobi Doctor’, a pure ‘Doctor’ and even a ‘Naqli Doctor’ 😊 (I mean in the list of movies) on the blog.

And one Doctor is ‘shaitaan’ too 😊 (wrong person in the ‘noble’ people’s company. 😊

The company of ‘Lady Doctor (s) -1944’ seems to be genuine with the support of Dr Madhurika, Dr Vidya and Dr Kumar. And I can see one ‘Doctor Ramesh-1949’ yet to join this company and need to check more in details. But I certainly remember ‘Ek Doctor Ki Maut-1990’ and that stirs my heart too.

I do not remember to have watched any of the above movies except ‘Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani’ which I watched on ‘Doordarshan’, If my memory serves me right.

As per information available in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) today’s movie ‘Doctor-Z’ had Shakeela, Mahipal, Heeralal, Helen, Vinod Diwani, Krishnakumari, Sundar, Mirza Musharraf, Dalpat, Tun Tun, Nasreen, Shetty, Bhudo Advani, Homi, Roosi, Bismillah, Baburao Pahalwan, Radheshyam, Rafiq, Hanuman, Balaram, Dhondu, M.K. Hasan, Karandikar, Sheetal Kumar and others.

This movie was directed by Jaal for ‘Baaliwala Films’ Bombay. Jaal was also the producer of this movie.

This movie had eights songs composed by Manohar and lyrics were penned by Akhtar Romani- fives songs and Jafar Rahi- one song. HFGK is silent on the lyricists for the remaining two songs.

S. No. Song Title Lyricist Posted on
01 Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani Zafar Rahi Being covered now
02 Jaan bhi le jo kahe zamaanaa, maan bhi le…
03 Tere gore rang pe mar gaye… sanam teri chaahat mein

07 Sitaaron tum chamakte ho… aasmaan pe hai Akhtar Romani
08 Hello sweety seventeen, kaisi hai tabiyat Akhtar Romani 09.11.2011

Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Talat Mahmood, Uma Devi and Balbir had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.10.1959.

From the above table we can see that the first song of this movie was posted on 09.11.2011 and after that second song was posted almost a gap of seven years, but the third song from this movie was posted the next year. Today’s song is being posted after another year, so the last three songs from the movie have been covered at the rate of one song every year. 😊

Today’s song is written by Zafar Rahi and it is sung by Mohd Rafi. Music is composed by Manohar.

I have not yet listened to other songs of this movie but many seems to be already available and I am sure they must be interesting songs to listen and enjoy.

Let us now enjoy this soulful rendition by Rafi Saab and some great heart touching lyrics by Zafar Rahi …

bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
ashqon ki zubaani hain
kuchh aahon ki zubaani
ashqon ki zubaani hai
kuchh aahon ki zubaani

Song-Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani (Dr Z)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Zafar Rahi, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani

Kitni hi ummeedon se sajaai hai ye duniya
Main khush thha ke khud
Maine banaayi hai ye duniya
Lekin teri duniya ne jalaa di meri duniya
Yaad aate hain wo din to
Sulagtaa hai kalejaa
Thhamta nahin aahon ka dhuaan
Seene ke andar
Rukti nahin roke se
In ashqon ki rawaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani

Ujadi huyi basti ka nishaan tak nahin milta
wo aag lagaayi ke dhuaan tak nahin milta
Har geet khushi ka hai
Sisakti huyi fariyaad
Seene se lagaaye huye
Phirta hoon bas ek yaad
Honthon pe kuchh aahen hai
To aankhon me kuchh aansoo
Le de ke yahi reh gayi
ik saari nishaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani

Bhagwaan mujhe dekh ke main
Haq pe ladaa hoon
Sachchaai ka deepak liye
Aandhi mein khadaa hoon
Andhiyaaron se imaan ki
Baaten na chhupengi ee
Thhak jayegaa raahi
Kabhi raahen na thhakengi ee
Sach bol kahin dil tera
Patthhar to nahin hai ae ae ae
Chup chaap jo suntaa hain tu
Insaan ki kahaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zabaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
Ashqon ki zubaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani

आ आ आ
आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ आ

भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी

कितनी ही उम्मीदों से सजाई है ये दुनिया
मैं खुश था के खुद
मैंने बनायीं है ये दुनिया
लेकिन तेरी दुनिया ने जला दी मेरी दुनिया
याद आते है वो दिन तो
सुलगता हा कलेजा
थमता नहीं आहों का धुंआ
सीने के अन्दर
रूकती नहीं रोके से
इन अश्कों की रवानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी

उजड़ी हुयी बस्ती का निशाँ तक नहीं मिलता
ओ आग लगाई के धुंआ तक नहीं मिलता
हर गीत ख़ुशी का है
सिसकती हुयी फ़रियाद
सीने से लगाए हुए
फिरता हूँ बस एक याद
होंठों पे कुछ आहें है
तो आँखों में कुछ आँसू
ले दे के यही रह गयी
इक सारी निशानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी

भगवान् मुझे देख के मैं
हक पे लड़ा हूँ
सच्चाई का दीपक लिए
आंधी में खडा हूँ
अंधियारों से ईमान की
बातें न छुपेंगी ई
थक जाएगा राही
कभी राहे न थकेंगी ई
सच बोल कहीं दिल तेरा
पत्थर तो नहीं है ए ए ए
चुप चाप जो सुनता हैं तू
इंसान की कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी

Today’s song is from the film Dost-54. There were films made with this title in 1944, 1954,1974,1989 and 1990. There were 17 films with the word Dost in their titles. Film Dost had 7 songs. 6 songs are already discussed here, but one song was not available for a long time. Now that is available and today’s song will qualify the film to become YIPPEED !

This is a Male-Male duet, sung by S.Balbir and S.Kapoor. Balbir is a known singer, but I do not know anything about this S Kapoor. He also acted in this film. The cast of the film was Usha Kiran, Suresh, Majnu, Randhir, Uma Dutt, Kammo, Mohana, S Kapoor, S Nazir and others. Actually actor Om prakash is also acting in this film. The film poster shows his name as well as photo. However, HFGK does not show his name in the cast. Such instances are not uncommon. Even in the film “1857” of 1946, the hero was Surendra, but his name was missing from the cast. Surendra had also sung one solo and one duet in the film.

Of course, the task of compiling HFGK was a mammoth one, so such small errors were seen sometimes. I find that only the HFGK volume II covering the 40’s decade has such instances and also in this volume, the cast names of films are few, giving a feeling that it is an incomplete cast detail. In all other volumes the cast is given almost fully. But these matters are understandable. The 40’s decade was a highly disturbed one. What with the second world war, independence, migration of artistes and the Partition. No wonder, material from this decade must have been difficult to gather.

Majnu was one of the actors in the cast. Majnu was not his real name. His real name was Harold Lewis-a Punjabi Christian. He was a close friend of producer Director Roop K Shorey. Shorey made a film “Majnu-1935″ and Harold was the Hero. The film was a Parody of the Laila – Majnu story. There were many fighting scenes in it and in one scene, Majnu is tied up to Railway Tracks. This film became very popular and the people started calling him majnu. He too liked it and continued with this name for life. In Hindi films, this is the only case where the actor is permanently named after his first role.

In the South film industry, I know of at least two Prominent actors, who were named forever, based on their first role or the company they worked for. First was actor Villupuram Chinnaiah Manrayar Ganesamoorthy, who started his career by acting in stage dramas. His first drama ” Shivaji kanda Hindu Rajyam”, featuring him in the role of Shivaji, became a Hit and so popular that the great social reformer E V Ramsamy conferred on him the name ” Sivaji “. He became SIVAJI GANESAN.

The second case was that of actor Ganapati Subramanian Sarma. He was a graduate in those early days of cinema. He joined Gemini Studiosas a Production Executive and from here he did a small role in Gemini’s film ” Miss Malini”-1947. Since there was already another ganesan in south films, this actor was called GEMINI GANESAN, as he was working in Gemini’s film.

Coming back to Majnu – MAJNU-Harold Lewis was a Punjabi Christian. He was born on 2-11-1913. He was the childhood friend of Roop K.Shorey. When Shorey wanted to make his second film,he chose Harold as a Hero.The film was MAJNU-1935,which was a satirical spoof on the old Laila-Majnu story.There were many stunts and in one scene Majnu is tied up on railway track by the villain.The film became a hit and Harold was renamed MANJU for his film career.

He appeared in almost all of Shorey’s films.He was also doing films with other producers.In 1942 he did a double role in Nishani and in 1943 he directed his first film Paapi. Shorey also gave him a film Badnami-1946 for direction and it was here that Majnu met I.S.Johar who wrote the story and Dialogues of Badnami.

Majnu paired with I.S.Johar in EK THI LADKI-1949,the debut film of Johar. Later they made a comedy pair in 10 films, including the hit film HUM SAB CHOR HAIN-1956. His last film with Johar was Akalmand-66.

Majnu acted in 77 films. His first film was Majnu-35 and his much delayed and released last film was Shri Krishna Bhakti-73.
Majnu directed 8 films including,Paapi-43, Badnami-46, Son of Alibaba-55, Tatar ka chor-55, Malika-56, Basre ki Hoor-56, Baghi sardar-56, and his last film – Chandu-58.

Harold Lewis aka Majnu died on 26-3-1974.

The music director of the film Dost-54 was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj Behl, in my opinion,is one of those composers in the film world, who composed lots of melodious songs. Unfortunately, he was also one of those composers who never got Big banners to work for. He and his brother, Gulshan Behl founded N.C.Films, on their father’s name-Nihal Chand- and produced B and C grade movies to which Hansraj gave his music. Hansraj was known as Master ji, in the industry. Only two people were known as Master ji…one was Ghulam Haider and the other was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj usually worked alone and rarely used any assistant while giving music.

Hansraj is remembered for giving initial playback singing breaks to Asha Bhonsle and Madhubala Jhaveri. He also gave a chance to his own friend Verma Malik-Lyricist. Malik used to live with him initially, in Bombay. He composed music for 62 films from Pujari-46 to Badmashon ka Badmash-79. One film “Insaaf ka Khoon” was released after his death,in 1988.

Hansraj Behl is one of the music directors who became successful in the post independence era. He composed music for not only Hindi films but also for Punjabi films. Hansraj was born on 19 November 1916 in Punjab. He got his basic education in music from Pt. Chunnilal. Then he opened his music school in Lahore and he had some non-film records released under the label of HMV. In 1944 Hansraj came to Bombay to try his luck in the Hindi film industry as a music director.

After one year of struggle he got his first film Pujari, made by Ardeshir Irani, in 1946. He got films like Gwaalan and Phulwaari in the same year, but all these films could not do well at the box office. Behl tasted success in 1947 with the release of Lakhon Mein Ek and Chheen Le Aazadi. ‘Moti Chugne Gayi Re Hansi..’ sung by Shamshad Begum and Mukesh from the film Chheen Le Aazadi became very popular. In 1948 he came up with four films – Chunariya, Mitti Ke Khilone, Pardesi Mehmaan and Satya Narayan, of which Chunariya’s music was a hit especially the song ‘Dil-e-Nashaad Ko Jeene Ki Hasrat Ho Gayi..’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song which placed him among high class music directors was ‘Sab Kuchh Lutaya Hamne Aakar Teri Gali Me..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and written by Mulk Raj Bhaakri.

In the year 1949, he came out with Chakori, Raat Ki Raani, Zevraat and few more films. Lata sang one of her favourite songs, ‘Haye Chanda Gaye Pardes Chakori Yahan Ro Ro Mare..’ in Chakori, which became very popular and it helped Hansraj to gain popularity among music lovers. ‘Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi in Raat Ki Raani was a nationwide hit.

In 1950-51 he gave many hit songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Suraiyya. Songs of Kisi Ki Yaad became very popular soon after the release of the film. ‘Koi Mujhko Na Bulaye..’ and ‘Tadapta Chhod Kar Mujhko Kahaan Tum Reh Gaye..’ both sung by Geeta Dutt and ‘O Jaane Wale Ye Kya Kiya..’ by Mohammed Rafi gained immense popularity. In 1952 he introduced Madhubala Jhaveri as a playback singer in Apni Izzat and Jaggu. Madhubala sang ‘Dil Mere Tera Diwaana..’ with Talat Mehmood and ‘Meethi Meethi Loriyaan Main Dheere Dheere Gaoon..’ (both Apni Izzat) featured her solo voice. In 1954, he again came out with musical films like Dost and Khaiber. ‘Aaye Bhi Akela Jaye Bhi Akela..’ from Dost (1954) sung by Talat Mehmood was among one of his memorable compositions.

He continued to give his best in films like Rajdhani, Milan, Miss Bombay, Changez Khan and Saawan. Songs like ‘Bhool Ja Sapne Suhane..’ from Rajdhani (1956), ‘Mohabbat Zinda rehti Hai..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘ Jab Raat Nahi Katti..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘Zindagi Bhar Gham Judaai Ka..’ from Miss Bombay (1957), ‘Haseen Ho Khuda To Nahi..’ from Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh (1960), ‘Bheega Bheega Pyar Ka Sama..’ from Saawan (1959) and ‘Tujhko Dhoondhu To Dhoondhu Kahaan..’ from Milan (1959) crossed all the barriers of success and Hansraj Behl’s name was on the lips of every music lover.

After all these successful films he continued to give music till 1969 but failed to give any hit because his later films were either stunts or fantasy films with little scope for having good music. His last hit song was an all time great creation ‘Jahan Daal Daal Pe Sone Ki Chidiya Karti Hai Basera..’ which was sung by Mohammed Rafi for the film Sikandar-e-Azam in 1965.

Hansraj Behl died of Cancer in Bombay on 20-5-1984.

With today’s song, all the eight songs of the film Dost-54 get covered and the movie gets YIPPEED in the blog


Song-Ham phiren kanwaare rab jee (Dost)(1954) Singers-Balbir, S Kapoor, Lyrics-Om Prakash, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

Hum phiren kanwaare Rab ji
Hum phiren kunware
Hum phiren kanware Rab ji
Hum phire kanware
is duniya mein bhookhe nange jiyen tere sahaare
kya karen bechaare rab jee
hum phiren kunwaare

shahar mein aa kar hamne daata
dekha ajab tamaasha
shahar mein aa kar hamne daata
dekha ajab tamaasha
koi na poochhe paani kisi ko
beshaq mare pyaasa
koi na poochhe paani kisi ko
beshaq mare pyaasa
o rab jee beshaq mare pyaasa
isi liye main dikhe hain
lemon sode saare
qurbaan tumhaare
rab jee
hum phiren kunwaare

sare aam phirte hain yahaan par
mard aurat ke jode
sare aam phirte hain yahaan par
mard aurat ke jode
dekh ke in jodon ko
mere dil par paden hathauden
dekh ke in jodon ko
mere dil par paden hathauden
o rab jee
dil par paden hathauden
kaisa ye insaaf hai tera
ham bhi rahen kanwaare
ab badal chuka re
rab jee
ham phiren kanwaare

dhanwaalon ki naiyya maalik
bin chappoo hai chalti
dhanwaalon ki naiyya maalik
bin chappoo hai chalti
ham bhookhon ki is duniya mein
daal nahin hai galti
ham bhookhon ki is duniya mein
daal nahin hai galti
o rab jee
daal nahin hai galti
na ghar baar na paise palle
ro ro karen gujaare
phaakon ke maare
rab jee
ham phiren kanwaare

chalte phirte din guzren
footpath pe kati raat
o neeli chhatri waale
ab bigad gayi sab baat
main to bhola bhaala hoon
o main to bhola bhaala hoon
tu meri laaj bachaa le
ya to ik se do kar de
ya apne paas bulaa le
apne paas bulaa le
o rab jee
apne paas bulaa le
gaya waqt nahin aayegaa
kuchh soch le mere baare
kuchh soch le mere baare
sun jag ke ke pyaare
rab jee
ham phiren kanwaare
is duniya mein bhookhe nange
jiyen kare sahaare
kya karen bechaare
rab jee
ham phiren kanwaare

Today (20 August 2020) happens to be 36th remembrance day of Avinash Vyas (21 july 1912- 20 August 1984).

As a tribute to him, two songs composed by him have been covered in the blog. Incidentally, his tally of songs in the blog stands at 99. So today is an appropriate occasion to cover the 100th song of Avinash Vyas in the blog.

Avinash Vyas was active in Hindi movies from early 1940s till late 1970s. Overall, he composed music in 52 movies as far as my research goes. Here are the details:-

Total 52 movies 99 377* Number of songs unknown in some movies

As can be seen from the table, Avinash Vyas has composed a little under 400 songs in 52 Hindi movies. Most of these movies have been mythological movies. But “Adhikaar”(1954) is a glorious exception. In this movie, which was a “social” movie and which is already YIPPEED in the blog, Avinash Vyas created some evergreen classics, viz. BA MA PhD , Dil mein hamaare kaun samaaya khud hi samajh lo , Ek dharti hai ek hai gagan ,
Kamaata hoon bahut kuchh and
Maati kahe kumhaar se…maati mein mil jaanaa etc.

Majority of Hindi movies that Avinash Vyas got in Hindi were mythological movies of course. And in these movies, his songs would typically e penned by Bharat Vyas (no relation), Kavi Pradeep etc. “Chakrdhaari”(1954), an archtypically mythological movie had 13 songs in it. This movie too is YIPPEED in the blog. And what songs this movie has ! Baadal ki paalki pe hoke sawaar and Bolo he zameen bolo aasmaan are two of these songs.

As a tribute to Avinash Vyas, here is a song from “Charnon Ki Daasi”(1959). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas, of course.

“Charnon Ki Daasi”(1959) was produced by Beni Talwar and directed by Ramesh Vyas for Chandra Prakash Pictures, Bombay. This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Madan Puri, Jagdeesh Sethi, Leela Mishra, Jayshree Gadkar, Nand Kishore, Rooplaxmi, Amirbai Karnataki, Heera, Suryakant, Poonam, Narbada Shankar, Jagdeesh Kanwal etc in it.

This movie had six rare songs in it. It is in the fitness of things that the 100th song of Avinash Vyas in the blog as a music director should be a special song. Only the audio of this “remonstating with the Almighty” genre of song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Charnon Ki Daasi”(1959) makes its debut in the blog while Avinash Vyas joins the select band of artists who have 100 or more songs in the blog. He becomes the 38th music director and 92nd artist overall to achieve this distinction in the blog.

Knowledgeable readers are requested to point our errors and omissions etc if any in the filmography presented above.


Song-Aaja Re…Dukhiya dharti tujhe pukaare (Charnon Ki Daasi)(1959) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

Aajaa re ae ae
dukhiya dharti tujhe pukaare
o paataal ke waasi
sheshnaag ki shaiyya chhod ke
aaja re ae
aaja re Avinaashi

tum bin meri pooja adhoori
o o
o o o o o o
tum bin meri pooja adhoori
ankhiyaan neer bahaatin
tum bin phool mere murjhaaye
bujhi deep ki baati
rahi adhoori meri aarti
teri ban gayi daasi
aaja o Ghanshyaam tumhaare
pathh mein palak bichhaati
jee na sakegi darshan bin
tere charan kamal ki daasi
sheshnaag ki shaiyya chhod ke
aaja re ae
aaja re Avinaashi

ik din toone Drupad suta ki
laaj ka cheer badhaaya
ik din toone maiyya Ahilya ka
sab paap chhudaaya
jab bhakton ne tujhe bulaaya
nange paaon tu aayaa
aaj meri baari aayi to
kahaan wo roop chhupaaya
jal bin machhli si tadpoon main
log udaayen haansi
sheshnaag ki shaiyya chhod ke
aaja re ae
aaja re Avinaashi

aaj is pukaar pe
jo tu na aayegaa aa
mera kuchh nahin tera naam jaayegaa
aaj bigdi baat jo na tu banaayegaa aa
phir na koi bhakt tere geet gaayegaa aa
aaja re ae
aaja re ae
aaja re ae
aaja re ae
aaja re ae ae ae

Song-Itni si meri hai pukaar prabhu (Laxmi Pooja)(1957) Singers-Shamshad Begam, Rafi, Lyrica-Bharat Vyas, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

itni si meri hai pukaar prabhu
itna sa mera kehna
bhagwaan tere bhakton ko jagat mein
padta hai dukh sahna aa aa
itni si meri hai pukaar
sukh dukh se bhara sansaar
yahaan sab hanste huye sahna
jis haal mein raakhe gopal humen
usmein hi magan rehna aa aa
sukh dukh se bhara sansaar

dekh muraari tera pujaari
haare kahin na baazi
dekh muraari tera pujaari
haare kahin na baazi
jismein hai raazi maalik hamaara aa aa
jismein hai raazi maalik hamaara
hum sab usi mein raazi
humen kiska hai darr
humne to teri bhakti ka mukut pahna aa
jis haal mein raakhe gopal
humen usmein hi magan rahna aa aa
sukh dukh se bhara sansaar

duniya ke daata
o re vidhaata
tera vidhaan anoothha
aisa hamaare man ko laga re
tu aaj humse roothha

tera bharosa bhagwan agar kahin satiyon ke man se toota
pooja karega na koi teri
tu jag mein padega jhoothha
aaj koi abla ke bhaag ka
loot raha gehna
jis haal mein raakhe gopal
humen usmein hi magan rahna

bhagwaan tere bhakton ko jagat mein
padta hai dukh sehna
