Today’s song is quite a rare song. It is from film Khush Raho-49. This was a C grade stunt film, made by Sushil pictures, Bombay. Directed by Harbans,it had music by Shiv Dayal Batish. I say this is a rare song, for 2 reasons. One- in most cases, producers of stunt films were not interested in making commercial records of songs of their films. Reason – Usually, the composers of such low budget films were also unknown or less known composers. If at all, a well known composer was there, he rarely gave his best shot to stunt film, which attracted a fixed, low class audience. Second – Music or songs were not what attracted the audience of stunt films. So the songs rarely became well known and the records-if brought out at all-did not sell.

Therefore C grade film songs are usually a matter of interest to Collectors. These songs are not even uploaded on sites like U-Tube and that is why such film songs are difficult to be found. Only in extremely rare cases a song from a stunt film is famous and popular. off hand, I can remember one such song , ” Humen to loot liya mil ke husn walon ne” from film Al Hilaal-58. It became famous and had the honour of becoming the 5000 th song on this Blog, with write ups from Raja ji, Sudhir ji and Atul ji, on 13-11-2011. Of course, there could be some more famous songs from stunt films.

The cast of the film Khush Raho-49 was Bhagwan, Baburao (Pehalwan), Vasantrao (Pehalwan), Sarla, Leela Gupte, Ratan Piya and others. In the decade of 40s, the number One stunt film maker, director, producer and actor was undoubtedly Master Bhagwan. Till his first social film ” Albela ” -51 hit the screen and became an Iconic musical film, Bhagwan was into stunt films only.

Famous Film Historian and Author of Marathi, Hindi and English books on old films and artistes, Isak Mujawar ( 22-5-1934 to 26-2-2015 ) has written over 30 books. Mujawar, Master Bhagwan and C Ramchandra were good friends and Mujawar has written about them in his books. He has given first hand information gathered from them. Mujawar has written a book ” Ek Albela ” on Master Bhagwan. Many less known facts and anecdotes about Bhagwan, CR and other artistes are given in this book.

When Bhagwan was directing- and acting in- film Bahadur Kisan-37, he got introduced to CR or Ram Chitalkar,as he was known then.Soon they became thick friends. When Bhagwan got Tamil film ‘ Jaykodi’ to direct in Madras, he took Chitalkar as the Music Director. They did one more film ‘ Van Mohini’ together in Madras and returned to Bombay. Actually Bhagwan had received several offers to direct more films, including one from AVM also, but his brother Shankar Palav came to Madras and forced him to return to Bombay.

Harishchandrarao Kadam, who had floated his own production outfit Harishchandra Pictures, was waiting to offer a Hindi film,” Sukhi Jivan” for Bhagwan to direct. The offer was to act in and direct the film for Rs. 3000 pm salary plus 20% share in the profits of the film. However, the producer wanted to continue with his MD, Naidu for this film too. Naidu was once an assistant to Anil Biswas and Kadam had promissed Anil Biswas to give this film to Naidu. However, Bhagwan flatly refused and said,” only Chitalkar will be the MD or I wont do the film”. Now there was a problem, as both were adamant for their MD. Finally, Anil Biswas came to mediate. Bhagwan told him,” Chitalkar came to Madras with me on my calling and also returned to Bombay with me,though he too had more offers there. Now I can not leave him high and dry. It is with him or no film”

Anil Biswas told the producer, ” OK. you give this film to Chitalkar and next film to Naidu”. The problem was solved and Ram Chitalkar got his first Hindi film ‘ Sukhi Jivan’-42 as an independent MD. He began his career and rose to heights which we all know very well. Harishchandrarao kadam gave film ‘ Watan ki Pukar ‘-43 to Naidu. Like this many interesting anecdotes are described in the book ‘ Ek Albela ‘, about CR and Bhagwan. I intend to weave some stories in my forthcoming posts.

In the cast there is a very romantic name-Ratan Piya. He was born on 5-3-1904 at Lucknow. His father Pt. Madan Mohan was secretary to Motilal Nehru. His father was a theatre lover and so started his own Theatre company at Allahabad. Ratan, after his matriculation started working in it. He was trained to write songs for its dramas. Their company was patronised by the Viceroy, who paid Rs. 20 p.m. as his Patronage !

Ratan debuted as a Lyricist in film Pakke Badmash-1939. For this film, he even wrote an English song. His films as a Lyricist were Zaban-43, Mali-44, Umang-44 Nai Baat-47 and Batohi-48. For sustenance, he even acted in few films like, Shakuntala-43, Umang-44, Meena-44, Mahakavi Kalidas-44, Panna Dai-45, Khush Raho-49, Janam Patrika-49 and Begunah-49. After this Ratan Piya returned to Allahabad to look after their Theatre when his father died.

There were 3 Major Centres for Hindi Film Production in India in the early days. Calcutta,Lahore and Bombay.

From the period of Talkie films, all the 3 centres became very active and many films with lot of songs were produced.Initially,in the Talkie films,even the Dialogues were in poetry type,so it was difficult to demarcate Dialogues and songs separately.Films like Indrasabha-1932 had 71(or 69) songs.Similarly, films from that era had anything between 10-50 songs each.

In the Calcutta centre, film music had a distinct influence of Robindra Sangeet,In the Lahore films,it was Punjabi and folk tunes whereas in the western Bombay centre music was influenced by Marathi stage, Gujarati Dramas and Parsi Theatre. Out of this, Marathi stage music had a pronounced effect on films as many classical Drama artists joined Film industry.As such this music was well developed and its acceptability was taken for granted.

When more films and songs were made in Bombay,there was a need for more singers.The composers were constantly on the lookout for fresh singers.
Prabhat Film Company shifted from Kolhapur to Poona,but there were many connections still left in Kolhapur area.When Prabhat started making the film ” SANT SAKHU ” in 1941,the Music Director Keshav Rao Bhole needed new singers.His assistant that time was a young man from Kolhapur area,named VASANT DESAI. He was entrusted the task of getting new singers. Such Talent Hunters were in Calcutta and Lahore also.

There is a book “The Desai Trio and the movie industry in India” by shri Nilu Gavankar. He describes this episode thus-

Vasant Desai had lot of connections in Kolhapur and Konkan.He had learnt about 2 Desai Sisters of Kolhapur who were very good singers,but he did not know them.He went to Kolhapur and met Mrs.Susheelabai Gavankar,the author’s wife and his family friend.He inquired if she knew these girls.She said, “Yes.Their mother Sharadini Desai is my friend.” They both went to Desai house. Vasant Desai was introduced.There were 2 sisters VINODINI AND PRAMODINI. Vinodini was about 15 yr.old. Vasant Desai proposed that Vinodini sings for a Hindi film. There was a flat refusal as ” girls from good homes do not sing in films”. After a great convincing and a promise of personal protection, it was agreed.

Accordingly, VINODINI sang for her first Hindi film Sant Sakhu in 1941. Later she was given many opportunities to sing in Marathi films, Bhavgeets etc.In 2 years’ time Vinodini got married to Music Director PANDURANG DIKSHIT and became Vinodini Dikshit. She was actually more into classical singing and devoted time in that, so she sang only 15 songs in Hindi films like Sant Sakhu-41, Gwalan -46, Lakhon mein ek-47, Poojya Gandhi ji-48, Sati Narmada-50 and Bhagwan Shrikrishna-50. She gave stage shows for classical singing and was actively involved in Kalyan Gayan Vidyalaya near Bombay.

Her younger sister Pramodini followed suit and started singing in Hindi films, starting with Khush Raho-49. She sang in more films than her sister, 27 songs in 13 films. Her other films include Raaz-49, Dilruba-50 Shokhiyan-51, Kashmir-51, Nand Kishore-51, Sazaa-51 Char chand-53, Fariyadi-53, One two Three-53, Gunah-53, Naulakha Haar-53 and Pehli Tarikh-54 . Later she got married to Ashok Patkar and settled in Bombay as a Housewife.

Today’s song is sung by Promodini Desai and Balbir. There were 9 songs in the film and 6 of them were sung by her. 3 solos and 3 duets. There were also 2 solos of Balbir in it. Except for today’s song, I could not get any other song from this film. So let us enjoy this rare song. With this song film Khush Raho -49 makes its debut in the Blog.

Blog Day : 3600 Post No. : 14367

Today (27 may 2018) is the 3600th day for the blog. A quick mental calculation would show that one year has 365 days so ten years has (365 x 10) + 3 =3653 days. In other words, this blog is just 53 days short of turning TEN years old.

A quick mental calculation would also show that 3600 x 4 = 14400. We would have been at song number 14400, if we were going at a rate of four songs a day. We were indeed maintaining that rate till two weeks ago. But now we have falleed behind that strike rate. Hopefully we will soon catch up on this strike rate.

Arriving at this century mark- an “artificial” century mark, as I like to describe such landmarks, calls for celebration. No, not some serious grim kind of celebration, but a rather light hearted silly kind of celebration.

I have stumbled upon just the kind of song that serves as an appropriately silly kind of song for the occasion. This song does not have the word “silly” in it, but it contains plentiful of words rhyming with “silly”. 🙂

This song is from a movie that is called “Laalten”(1956). “Laalten”(1956) was directed by Harish for Harish Productions, Bombay. The movie had Geeta Bali, Motilal, Kanhaiyalal, Shammi, Mukri, Indira Bansal, Indu Paul, Harish, Uma Dutt, Mohan Choti, Nazir Kashmiri, Ravikant, Kanwal Dukhiya, Arvind Kumar, Shakeel Nomani, Bishan Khanna, T N Charlie, A Qadir, Ratan Gaurang, Fazal Karim, Hameed Majnu, Bismillah, Nawab Kashmiri, Kamal Mohan etc. with Bhudo Advani in guest appearance.

This rare movie, which sounds like a fun movie had eight songs in it. Three song from the movie has been covered in the past. The previous song from this movie has appeared on day number 2986. So this song appears after a passage of another 614 days !

This “silly” fun song is sung by Balbir and Geeta Dutt. Shewan Rizvi, normally associated with “serious” songs lets his hair down penning the fun lyrics of this song. Hemant Kumar, normally associated with serious sombre kind of music also enjoys himself likewise. 🙂

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw laalten light 🙂 on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

“Holiday in Bombay”(1963) was directed by P L Santoshi for Yugchhaaya, Bombay. This movie, described as a “social” movie, was an entertaing comedy movie in fact. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Vijaya Chaudhary, Rajendranath, Naseem Bano, Dhumal, P Kailash, Ulhaas, Randheer, Sulochana Chatterji, Rajan Haksar, Jeewankala, Ram Kumar, Renu Makkad, Heera Sawant, Kundan, B B Bhalla, D Dilip, Nazeer Kashmiri, Hublikar, Laxmi Chhaaya etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Holiday in Bombay”(1963) to appear in the blog. HFGK is silent about the identity of the singers as well as the lyricist.

Listening to the song, it is clear that the song is sung by Rafi, Balbir and chorus. Video of the song is available which shows that this song is lip synced by Shashi Kapoor and Rajendranath in a get together situation. This song is supposedly a Lord Krishn bhajan but it is actually an “expression of love” song sung by our hero and his side kick for their respective love interests.

The uploader has mentioned Anjaan as the lyricist and I have gone with that.

Music is composed by N Datta.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the various actors who are visible in the picturisation of the song.

Only the audio of this song is available. It sounds like a light hearted roadside tamasha song picturised on two male and one female performers , both men wooing the lady. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


song-Do do hain deewaane mere parwaane (Baazigar)(1959) Singers-Balbir, Rafi, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

dekha hai tum ko jab se hamen chaand pheeka lage

Here is the eighth and final song from “Inquilaab”(1956) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi, Balbir and chorus. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

The song is picturised as a lighthearted qawwaali lip synced by lots of people including Johny Walker, Sundar etc. Their qawwali is being watched by many people including Shyama and her friend (whom I am unable to identify). There is no clear cut demarcation about who sings in whose voice. we find Johny Walker lipsyncing in Rafi’s voice and also Balbir’s voice. Same is the case with Sundar and a few others.

The qawwaali half jokingly mentions lovers missing their beloved at “raat ke paune teen baje”(at 2:45 AM after midnight) 🙂

I thought of posting this writeup at “raat ke paune teen baje” but then thought better of that. Most of us HFM lovers do not miss out beloved at “raat ke paune teen baje”, I am sure. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors visible in the picturisation of this song.

With this light hearted qawwaali song, “Inquilaab”(1956) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Mumtaz Mahal” (1957) was directed by Ram Daryani for Nigam Films. The movie had Jairaj, Sheela Ramani, Veena, Agha, Umesh, Nazir Kashmiri, GM Durrani, Heera Sawant, Samson, Uma Dutt, Minnie etc in it.

HFGK mentions one song twice and that gives a figure of seven songs for this movie. In reality the movie has only six songs. Five of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs covered earlier :

Apna bana ke phir kyun bhulaaya 9714 15-Apr-14
Ae dil e beqaraar dekh 9920 24-Jun-14
Aayi hoon main chamak chaandni 9922 25-Jun-14
Main dil ka saaz bajaata hoon 9939 2-Jul-14
Mere dil jhoom zara 9989 19-Jul-14

A perusal of the details of the songs covered earlier reveals some interesting facts. The first song from the movie was covered on 15 april 2014 and the fifth song from the movie was covered on 19 july 2014, the day of blog’s sixth anniversary when the countdown to the 10kth song in the blog was in its full flow.

All the five songs from “Mumtaz Mahal”(1956) were covered in 2014 and that left only one more song to be covered. Why we did not cover the sixth and final song in that year itself ?

Well, there are many reasons. One reason is that the idea of covering all songs of movies had not yet caught up in the blog by then. Secondly, those days we covered songs as we came across them. Only five songs from the movie were available and they were all covered. In any case, I was no aware about the number of songs that this movie (or for that matter any movie) contained since I did not have access to HFGK till then.

I became a proud possessor of HFGK a few days after the 10kth song in the blog thanks to the generosity of Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh and Sudhir Ji, who gifted me all the five volumes of HFGK on the occasion of this momentous occasion.

Now a days I specifically maintain a list of movies that have only one or two songs left to be covered (by looking up in the HFGK). I keep search for the missing songs. That way I always have a list of YIPPIable movies to chose from.

Coming to “Mumtaz Mahal”(1957), I was under the impression that that two songs from the movie were left to be covered. As mentioned above,, I realised that one of these songs was already covered in the blog (being a duplicate entry), so only one song from the movie remained to be covered.

This missing song, unsurprisingly, was a rare song. Listening to the song made me realise that it is even more rare. For once, it is a solo song sung by Balbir. Now, Balbir has an many as 41 songs in the blog but only one of these songs is a solo song.

I thought that I should cover this song on the occasion of Balbir’s anniversary. When I checked up, I found that hardly any details are available online. I realised that the most comprehensive detail on Balbir is available in this blopg itself, and is in the writeup on the Balbir solo song that was covered in the blog on 19 july 2014 !

That article was written by Sudhir Ji, and there he had mentioned that Balbir was born in 1926 in Amritsar. That article mentions that Balbir sang in around 120 movies in a career spanning four decades (from 1940s till 1970s), but only about a dozen or so of them are solo songs.

The exact day of Balbir’s birth anniversary is not known. In fact, the exact date of his death is not known either. On searching online, I read in an news item that he was murdered by his relatives sometime in 1970s. So sad.

With no date to go by, there is little point holding this rare song back. So here is the sixth and final song from “Mumtaz Mahal”(1957), four years after the other five songs from the movie were covered in the blog.

This song is sung by S Balbir. Pt Priyadarshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the song. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, “Mumtaz Mahal”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-So raha jahaan hai (Mumtaz Mahal)(1957) Singer-Balbir, Lyrics-Pt Priyadarshi, MD-Vinod

Lyrics

so raha jahaan hai
jaagti jawaaniyaan
so raha jahaan hai
jaagti jawaaniyaan
dil mein rehne waale sun
dil mein rehne waale sun
dard bhari kahaaniyaan
so raha jahaan hai

baadalon ki god mein
chaand muskura raha
ishq jhoom jhoom aaj
ishq jhoom jhoom aaj
husn ko bula raha aa
dekh lo chakor ko
de raha qurbaaniyaan aan
dil mein rehne waale sun
dard bhari kahaaniyaan
so raha jahaan hai

dolte armaan hain
dhadkanen machal raheen
baar baar har ghadi
baar baar har ghadi
saans thhandi chal rahi ee
pyaase honth maangte
pyaar ki nishaaniyaan
dil mein rehne waale sun
dil mein rehne waale sun
dard bhari kahaaniyaan
so raha jahaan hai

सो रहा जहान् है
जागती जवानियाँ
सो रहा जहान् है
जागती जवानियाँ
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दर्द भरी कहानियाँ
सो रहा जहान् है

बादलों की गोद में
चाँद मुस्कुरा रहा
इश्क़ झूम झूम आज
इश्क़ झूम झूम आज
हुस्न को बुला रहा
देख लो चकोर को
दे रहा कुर्बानियाँ’
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दर्द भरी कहानियाँ
सो रहा जहान् है

डोलते अरमान हैं
धड़कनें मचल रहीं
बार बार हर घड़ी
बार बार हर घड़ी
सांस ठंडी चल रही
प्यासे होंठ मांगते
प्यार की निशानियाँ
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दिल में रहने वाले सुन
दर्द भरी कहानियाँ
सो रहा जहान् है

“Johar in Bombay” (1967) was directed by Shantilal Soni for Thakkar Films, Bombay. The movie had I S Johar, Sonia Sahni, K N Singh, Rajendranath, Madan Puri, Polson, Jeevankala etc in it.

This movie was one of several “Johar in…” series on movies, a bit like the “Carry on…” series of movies in Hollywood.
In this particular movie, I S Johar ties up with Rajendranath, both playing good for nothing slackers who somehow manage to save the coutry (if not the world) from evil scientists out to destroy the country (if not the world).

The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the blog. Here is the sixth and final song from “Johar in Bombay” (1967). This song is a rare song in the sense that it is not available as a standalone song on YT as of now. The song is a roadside tamasha song where I s Johar and Rajendranath and seen performing a streetside dance alongwith their love interests- Sonia Sahni and Jeewankala (?). The dance performance have elements of punjabi folk dance followed by Maharashtrian lavani folk dance.

The song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, S Balbir, Usha Timothy and Krishna Kalle. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

Today (9 january 2018) happens to be the birth anniversary of Mahendra Kapoor (9 january 1934-27 september 2008). Quite fortuitously, this happens to the 300th song of Mahendra Kapoor in the blog. So this is a perfect tribute to the singer in the blog.

It also happens to be the 15th death anniversary of Qamar Jalalabadi (9 january 2003). So this song serves as a tribute to Qamar Jalalabadi as well.

With this song, “Johar in Bombay” (1967) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
