#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #

A tribute to Poet-Lyricist – Bharat Vyas
——————————————–

Today 6th January’2022 is the One hundred and fourth birth anniversary of Poet Lyricist Bharat Vyas. He was born on 06.01.1918 and he passed away on 05.07.1982.

As per the statistics page on our blog he has written over twelve hundred songs for Hindi Films. Out of these 1246 songs, so far, only 436 songs have been posted on the blog. So it is still a long way oof before we have all the songs of Bharat Vyas on the blog.

It is quite possible that many of the songs written by him many not be available now.

It will be interesting to bring on board as many songs of Bharat Vyas as possible.

Today, as a tribute to him, here is a song written by him for the movie ‘Raja Vikram-1957’.

‘Raajaa Vikram-1957’ was directed by Dhirubhai Desai for ‘Sharad Productions. It had Usha Kiran, Shahu Modak, Nigar Sultana, Niranjan Sharma, P. Kailash, Vimla Kumari, Bhagwan, Suryakant, Sushil Kumar, Dilip, Ranjana Shukla, Vijaymala, Prabha Shankar, Bharat Kumar, Premi, Nemo, Poonam Kapoor, Mohini, Santosh Kumar, Chhotelal, Kalla, Anil Kumar, Pandya, Kesarbai, Noorjahaan, Nirmal Kumar, Devchand and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.10.1957.

‘Raajaa Vikram’ has eleven songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by B.N. Bali.

Here is the list of songs as mentioned for ‘Raajaa Vikram’ in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960).

SNo. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ham aaj safar ko chaley Rafi, chorus 01.04.2013
02 Na maangoon main tera jahaan Rafi 28.04.2013

09 Dharti par jo rahaa, Manna Dey
10. Hey ambe hey durge, hey kaali Not mentioned
11 O aasmaan waale Geeta Dutt, chorus

From the above table we can see that three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog and all of them were posted in the ‘year 2013’. After that no song from this movie has appeared on the blog.

Today we present the fourth song from this movie which is sung by Manna Dey. I came across this song during my daily browsing on ‘Youtube’ and when I listened to it I immediately fell in love with this action packed song. I had always been a great fan of such songs.

Only the audio of the today’s song is available.

When I was about to send this song yesterday I noticed the date of his birth anniversary wich falls today. So, we are presenting this song as a tribute to this great poet and lyricist who has given us some of the ‘timeless’ songs.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

Song-Aaya zor se toofaan (Raja Vikram)(1957) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-B N Bali

Lyrics

aaya zor se toofaan
aaya zor se toofaan
na koi tadbeer chalegi khiwaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
aaya aaya zor se toofaan

chaaron oar se saagar ki goonjti
lehron ne tujhko gheraa aa
ab to na kuchh bhi deta dikhaayi
chhaane lagaa hai andheraa aa
aaj doley re dagmag praan
aaj doley re dagmag praan
bhanwar ka aage hai
bhool bhulaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
aaya aaya zor se toofaan

angaaraa ban ke dhadhke re dharti
dhadke gagan ki chhaati
lehraati aur bal khaati bijaliyaan
baadal mein aag lagaatin
aaj kaanpe re saaraa jahaan
aaj kaanpe re saaraa jahaan
huaa hai krodhi wo jag ka rachaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
aaya aaya zor se toofaan

aaj praan ka daanv lagaa ke
kar le prabhu ko raazi
sankat ki in ghadiyon mein saunp de
uske haath teri baazi
jo rakshak hai sabkaa mahaan
jo rakshak hai sabkaa mahaan
kanhaiyya
wohi tera hai bachaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
aaya aaya zor se toofaan
na koi tadbeer chalegi khiwaiyya
tera jeewan na tere haath
chhod de
raam bharose teri naiyya
raam bharose teri naiyya

Missing Films of 1960s – 115
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Frankly, I never really thought I would be posting a song for this most obscure of films. The name ‘Flying Horse’, with the accompanying information conspicuous for being so frugally available, kind of put this film near the bottom of the list with the likes of ‘Flight to Assam’ and ‘Mahavat’ (both from 1961), for which the expectation for traceability is kind of low enough to be non-existent.

So consider my surprise, and excitement of course, as I get a message from our Sadanand ji, about 10-12 days ago, with a link to this song, with the details claiming it to be one of the songs of this heretofore wonderfully extinct film. I played the song, I checked out the details – it all seemed to match. The song is listed in Geet Kosh as belonging to this film. This in my opinion, would constitute one of the rarest of the rare finds.

My interest in this song was further heightened, as I read the latter part of Sadanand ji’s message. First part of that dampening effect came when I read further to find that this song, although clearly listed for this film in the Geet Kosh, well, it also appears in the listing of another film. Further inputs from Sadanand ji, and more checking through the Geet Kosh reveals that there is another film titled ‘Saalgirah’, which also includes this song. And the fact that makes this scenario more interesting, as well as intriguing is, that ‘Saalgirah’ is listed as one of the unreleased films from the 1950s. As I tried to search for more info, my efforts were directed towards finding out what would be the common set of information for the two films, so as to establish some link between the two. A little digging revealed that there is only one common link between the two films, and that is the music director. That, in my mind, would serve to be an important linkage that would explain as well as support the scenario. The song would have been earlier prepared and recorded for the film ‘Saalgirah’, but then for whatever reason, the film was shelved. The tunes created would then become intellectual property either of the producer or the music director, depend on the understanding between the two.

Come 1963, and the film ‘Flying Horse’ – the music director chooses to use at least four of the songs prepared for the earlier unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’. So this becomes one of the cases of songs meant for one movie, but used in another movie. And here is an additional piece of information that makes the scenario more interesting. The Geet Kosh listing for the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’ shows that two gramophone records were published for the film, containing 4 of the 5 five songs listed for this unreleased film. Now this publication went on to ensure that the four songs of this film, continued to be available, although the film itself was never completed and released.

As I reviewed the Geet Kosh entries for ‘Flying Horse’, I found that no  gramophone record nos. are listed for it. Presumably then, the two records and four songs originally recorded for ‘Saalgirah’ are likely the only recordings available for these songs. And so with a little agreeable extrapolation, based on the details as contained in Geet Kosh, I am rightly announcing the uncovering of the songs of this rare and obscure film.

And so here we go. The 1963 film ‘Flying Horse’ is directed by Trimurty for the banner of Vishwakala Pictures, Bombay. The cast of actors is listed as Krishna Kumari, Samar Roy, Heera Sawant, Kesari, Ameerbai Karnataki, Shri Bhagwan, Sudha, Madhumati, Omi, Khanna, Pandit Iqbal, Master Mohan, and RS Dubey. It is interesting to note a few familiar names in this cast of actors.

There are seven songs listed for this film. Interestingly, the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’ has only five songs listed. The common denominator is the four songs that were published on gramophone records. The common factor of the music director across the two films also has a little variation. The name of the MD for ‘Saalgirah’ is listed as H Vijay. And the name of MD for ‘Flying Horse’ is listed as Vijay Honawar. Unless this is a coincidence of a superlative order, I would surmise that the two are the same person. Moreover the wordings of the titles of the four songs match exactly. And so does partially, the name of the lyricists. In the film ‘Saalgirah’ two of the four songs are credited to Madhuraj, one song to Munshi Khanjar, and one song to VR Sharma. In the case of ‘Flying Horse’, all the four songs are credited to Madhukar. It is known fact that Madhuraj is the pseudonym used on occasion by the poet Madhukar Rajasthani. And so does match the name of the lyricist also. The unexplained part that remains is why Madhukar Rajasthani is credited with two extra songs, that have been earlier credited to other lyricists. This will need research on available material like film information booklets etc. I cannot comment on this right now.

The singer’s name is listed in the details of the earlier unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’. The singer for this song is Aashima Bannerji. The song itself is a very sad song of unfulfilled love – an expression that borders on a complete resignation to the vagaries of fate.

So, with some collation of available data, part extrapolation, and part tongue-in-cheek gumption, I present here this song which can be termed as a very rare find. Actually, the uploader of this song on YouTube has probably surmised similar conclusions, and has posted this song for the film ‘Flying Horse’. Another fact that Sadanand ji points out is important, this song was played on Radio Ceylon (now Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation 🙂 ) sometimes during 2019, albeit that announcement was for the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’.

This series of missing films of 1960s, which has showcased 114 films already, over a span of – oh goodness – now almost five years, continues to be alive. In fact in the interim months since the previous two episodes was published in July 2019 and Jan 2020, I have received information input about the availability of songs of a few more films. That is heartening news, and the series is going to be alive for some more episodes. Watch this space for more postings in this series.

Song – Dheere Dheere Jal Re Manwa  (Flying Horse) (1963) Singer – Aashima Bannerji, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Vijay Honawar

Lyrics 

aaa aaa aaa aaa

dheere dheere jal re manwa

gaaun kya mann ki veentee

geet adhure pyaar ke

aansoo rahe nikal re manwa
dheere dheere jal re manwa
dheere dheere jal

jeevan ki shaam ho chuki
jeevan ki shaam ho chuki
aasha ki jyot bujh rahi
aasha ki jyot bujh rahi
mil na sakungi tumse main
mil na sakungi tumse main
sapne rahe machal re manwa
dheere dheere jal re manwa
dheere dheere jal
nainon mein raat dhal rahi
duniya rahi badal re manwa
dheere dheere jal
