Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 03
——————————————————————————–

Sometimes when I am contemplating a post and thinking about how to start and what to write in a song post, there are those long forgotten thoughts and sayings or some impressions formed in earlier decades that come to mind. Today, though was very hectic for me, since morning I was on the move, and the heat in Mumbai was not helping. Some how all these factors culminated in me getting a headache by lunch time, which kept worsening as the day wore on. But in the office I had certain urgent things to see to, plus to meet certain people. Changes and advancements in one’s career, though one actively seeks and strives to achieve, also bring about the need of all sorts of adjustments and getting acquainted with new responsibilities. It was one of those days, where the transition was for me to absorb and to look ahead with positivism. But for the headache. Eventually I did kill it with paracetamol. So tomorrow is going to be a new day, promising and bright, God willing.

———————————————————————-

‘Subhadra’ (1946) produced by Prafulla Pictures, Bombay and directed by Vinayak, is a mythological film with the star-cast consisting of  Prem Adeeb, Shanta Apte, Meenakshi, Shantarin, Usha Mantri, Prabhakar, Majumdar, Ishwarlal, Yakub, Salvi, Jog, Daamu Anna Mavlankar, Nimbalkar and Lata Mangeshkar.  Three lyricists, Pt. Indra, Pt. Sudarshan and Moti BA, had written the songs of this film, and the music was set by veteran Vasant Desai.  It is a well-known fact that before becoming a full time playback singer, Lata acted in few Marathi and Hindi films for financial need to support her family.

Today (4 january 2016) is the 22nd death anniversary of R D Burman ( 27 june 1939- 4 january 1994). I am amazed to realise that more than two decades have elapsed since R D Burman left us. And it is eqaully surprising to realise that he was almost jobless as a music director by the time he died. His last movie as a music director was “1942, a love story” and its music caught the imagination of music lovers, but R D Burman was not there to savour this success.

Missing Films of 1960s – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I am really incensed. Generally that does not happen easily, but today it has. Going thru the list of un-represented films from 1960s, the next target film for me was ‘Hawa Mahal’. I already looked for the 78 rpm records of this film, and have drawn a blank. From more than one source, I was informed that no records were manufactured for this film. Disappointing as this information was in itself, I was concerned, but not too much. Because I knew that I have this film with me on disk. So when the time came to prepare a post for the film ‘Hawa Mahal’, I took out video file of the film, with the intent of listening to the songs and to prepare a upload version of one of them.

There are people who look forward to the weekends and they raise a silent or may be not so silent hurray as soon as they leave from their office to their home on friday evening. Why are people so happy during weekends and what exactly do they do on weekends ? I feel that working people are happy on realising that they will not have to be at the beck and call of their boss in the office for the next two days. They hope that they would be their own bosses for the next two days. Weekends are especially sweet for those people who feel that they have the misfortune of working with the worst boss in the world.:)

The name Neetu Singh conjures up an image of a very bright and charming and ever smiling beauty. She started her life in Bollywood at a very young age – she was only 8 when we see her name appear as a child actor, in two 1966 films – ‘Suraj’ and ‘Dus Lakh’.  However, the lasting memories are of her double role of twin sisters, separated on account of their parents’ discord, as Baby Sonia, in “Do Kaliyan” (1968). The image of a small child girl with double plaited hair [‘do choti’ sounds better, no? ;)] is still retained in our mind’s eye singing “Bachche Mann Ke Sachche” in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice.

Atul often says that inspite of the blog having already clocked five-digit number of songs, there are still plenty of very good songs out there that have still not found their way to the blog.

In my opinion, that is not a bad thing, because it keeps our journey of discovery interesting and exciting. Compiling songs on this blog is as much about the journey as about the destination – and we take as much pleasure in the journey as in getting closer to our destination. We have milestones, minor and major, that keep beckoning to us to approach them – and as we pass each milestone, we not only celebrate it but also set our sights on the next one.

The Wonderful Sounds of 1930s – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Listening to songs like this one, there are mixed feelings in the heart.  There is a pleasant joyous feeling that such wonderful sounds from almost eight decades ago, are available  and we can hear and enjoy them.  There is also a regretful irritation, almost bordering on frustration as to why more such songs are not available.  Why is it that all one can search and explore, and just one song is available from this film, and from many others.  And for many more, even one song is not traceable.

In my school and college days, we were taught that our essays needed to be precise and to the point and that beating about the bush instead of coming to the point was not recommended.

Much to my surprise, I discovered that Hindi movie songs, especially romantic songs typically had lyrics that would beat about the bush and would rarely come to the point. Instead of stating “I love you” and be done with it, Hindi movie songs would refer to “Baadal”, “Aasmaan”, “Chaatak”, “Mor”, “jhoola”,”Chilman”, “dupatta” etc etc. As a conscientious student, I disapproved of such collosal waste of stationery.:)
