Blog Day : 4368 Post No. : 15700

While covering songs on most days, I do not feel much pressure. The only pressure on me is that the day should not end up as a DOT day. I make sure that at least one writeup appears on the blog every day. Fortunately there has been no DOT days this year. The last DOT day of the blog was in December 2019.

The other “pressure”, apart from that of avoiding DOT day, is to make sure that guest posts are published within a day or so. If there is too much delay in publishing them then it may lead to avoidable misunderstanding. Then there is pressure of publishing articles that are topical (having to do with anniversaries, special days etc) which must be published on the appointed day otherwise they lose their relevance.

When it is a question of publishing one post to avoid DOT day, I am happy just being able to publish a bare bones article, an article that hardly has any details other than the most basic information, a far cry from some of the three thousand words plus writeups in the blog. A few of the special occasion writeups are also like that. Guest posts are “easy” because all the hard work is already done by others. It is articles by me on special occasions that put me under pressure. If I am aware of the special occasion well in advance then I am mentally prepared, but if I become aware of the special occasion only on the day when it arrives, then I am in “trouble”. It happens with me in case of many of the anniversaries, seeing that I am not very good in remembering such dates.

Then there are some many days, like Mother’s day, Father’s day, Doctor’s day, Chocolate day and other such largely artificially created days that one becomes aware of only in the morning when one starts the computer and open the search page viz google. And there is some special google doodle staring at you, informing you that it was “Milk” day on that day ! I became aware of “milk” day on the morning of 1st June 2020. I felt that I needed to write an article on the occasion. Much of my day was spend thinking about an appropriate song, because there were very few songs on milk. Then it struck me that milk products qualify as well. And there are so many Hindi film songs on “Maakhan” (butter). We in India even have a God (Lord Krishna) who is the brand ambassador of “Maakhan”. It was already afternoon when this idea struck me and then I started typing out my writeup on the topic. This article finally appeared on the blog in the afternoon at 16:39 IST.

I feel the most “pressure” when the blog reaches its nervous nineties. It means that we need to have a special song as our blog century song. Nowadays, we are barely going at the rate of two or three songs in a day and we do not seem to able to muster the kind of creative writing juices that seemed to flow in abundance till a few years ago. Those days, people would start eagerly anticipating the moment. They would sometimes even stat guessing the song, taking hint from the tallies of various artists in the blog, or basing their guess on the anniversaries to come.

Those days are behind us. Those days we were galloping at Rajdhani express speed, reaching a century in 16 days. These days we are crawling at the speed of a passenger train, reaching centuries in over 50 days.

Just like in case of special occasion songs, I obviously has to think of an appropriate song for the blog century song. The song must be a “special” song befitting the special occasion. As in the case of other “special” occasion songs, this special occasion also puts me under pressure. This time the pressure is of my own making because I myself do not pay attention to the matter in time, and start worrying about it only at the last moment.

I was aware that we are reaching out 157th century, viz song post number 15700, but it was only yesterday (2nd July 2020) when I finally realised that the century post had to be inevitably posted on 3rd July 2020, if I had to ensure that this occasion did not clash with other special occasions viz anniversaries etc.

Like on many similar blog century occasions, I have chosen a “special” song as the blog post number 15700 of the blog. This song can be described as belonging to the category of rare songs, that few people may have heard of. Forget the song, one may not even have heard the name of the movie. The movie is called “Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar”(1960) aka “Black Rider”(1960). It was directed by Mehmood (same as the comedian or someone else ?) for Screenarts Bombay. The B grade obscure movie had Kamran, Krishnkumari, Habeeb, Shaam, Najma etc in it. HFGK mentions five songs for this movie.

One song from this movie has been covered in the past. Here is the second song from “Black Rider” (1960) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Balbir and Minu Prushottam with chorus. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Harbans.

The song is a qawwaali and sounds wonderful to listen to. But while most qawwaalis are quite long, this qawwaali ends after three minutes , after just two stanza, with the listeners wanting more. I wonder if this song was originally longer and only three minutes long version of the qawwaali was released on record. I request our knowledgeable readers to thow light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.
[Ed Note: As Sudhir ji points out in his comment, the full song is double the length – it is 6+ minutes and appears on two sides of a 78 rpm record. Whoever has uploaded the song did not take care enough to upload the full song. Sudhir ji has now uploaded the full qawwaali and updated the lyrics.]

With this extremely rare song, the blog reaches another century in the blog. This century took 53 days. Now that we are onto song post number 15700, the next magic number 16000 appears near by. Hopefully we will reach that big landmark in a matter of another few months.

With this post done, now I feel free to post next few articles without much pressure, before it would be time for the next important events for the blog, viz blog anniversary (which falls in july itself) etc.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support in helping this musical bandwagon keep chugging along merrily. Many more musical gems still lie ahead that we need to explore and savor.

Lyrics

aa aa aa
haseenon ki adaaon ne
hazaaron ko mitaa daala
kisi ko kar diya ruswa
kisi ka ghar jalaa daala

husnwaale khilauna jaan ke dil tod dete hain
husnwaale khilauna jaan ke dil tod dete hain
nazar se loot lete hain
tadapta chhod dete hain
ishq waale laga kar aag daaman chhod dete hain
ishq waale laga kar aag daaman chhod dete hain
ye zaalim berukhi se dil ka sheesha tod dete hain
ishq waale laga kar aag daaman chhod dete hain
ishq waale laga kar aag daaman chhod dete hain

kabhi palken jhukaa ke aur
kabhi zulfon ko bikhraa ke
aa aa aa
kabhi nazren milaa ke aur
kabhi aanchal ko lehraa ke
aa aa aa
dilon ko loot lete hain
dilaason per hi behlaa ke
tamaasha dekhte hain phir
tadapte dil ko tadpaa ke
sahaara dene se pehle
sahaare chhod dete hain
sahaara dene se pehle
sahaare chhod dete hain
nazar se loot lete hain
tadapta chhod dete hain
husnwaale khilauna jaan ke dil tod dete hain
husnwaale khilauna jaan ke dil tod dete hain

hamaara naam bhi badnaam
kar daala zamaane ne
haa..aa..aan
ghazab ki talkhiyaan bhar di
mohabbat ke fasaane mein
bade hi tez hain ye ishq waale
dil lagaane mein
basa ke apne haathon
pyaar ki basti mitaane mein
ye aise raahbar hain jo bhatakta chhod dete hain
ye aise raahbar hain jo bhatakta chhod dete hain
ye zaalim berukhi se dil ka sheesha tod dete hain
ishq waale laga kar aag daaman chhod dete hain
ishq waale laga kar aag daaman chhod dete hain

haa..aa..aa..aan
bade masoom bantey hain
bahut hoshiyaar hotey hain
haa..aa..aan
sambhal paate nahin wo
jin pe inke waar hotey hain
ye zaalim ishq waale
kis qadar ayyaar hotey hain
jo in se dil lagaate hain
bahut bezaar hotey hain
mohabbat ka haseen rishta ye pal mein tod detey hain
mohabbat ka haseen rishta ye pal mein tod detey hain
nazar se loot lete hain
tadapta chhod dete hain
ishq waale laga kar aag daaman chhod dete hain
ishq waale laga kar aag daaman chhod dete hain
aaa aaa aaa aaa aaaaa
aaa aaa aaa aaaaa
husnwaale khilauna jaan ke dil tod dete hain
husnwaale khilauna jaan ke dil tod dete hain
aaa aaa aaa aaa

आ आ आ
हसीनों की अदाओं ने
हजारों को मिटा डाला
किसी को कर दिया रुसवा
किसी का घर जला डाला

हुस्नवाले खिलौना जान कर दिल तोड़ देते हैं
हुस्नवाले खिलौना जान कर दिल तोड़ देते हैं
नज़र से लूट लेते हैं
तड़पता छोड़ देते हैं
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं
ये ज़ालिम बेरुखी से दिल का शीशा तोड़ देते हैं
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं

कभी पलकें झुका के और
लाभी ज़ुल्फों को बिखरा के
आ आ आ
अभी नज़रें मिला के और’
कभी आंचल को लहरा के
आ आ आ
दिलो को लूट लेते हैं
दिलासों पर ही बहला के
तमाशा देखते हैं फिर
तड़पते दिल को तड़पा के
सहारा देने से पहले
सहारा छोड़ देते हैं
सहारा देने से पहले
सहारा छोड़ देते हैं
नज़र से लूट लेते हैं
तड़पता छोड़ देते हैं
हुस्नवाले खिलौना जान कर दिल तोड़ देते हैं
हुस्नवाले खिलौना जान कर दिल तोड़ देते हैं

हमारा नाम भी बदनाम
कर डाला जमाने ने
हाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
ग़ज़ब की तल्खियाँ भर दीं
मोहब्बत के फसाने में
बड़े ही तेज़ हैं ये इश्क़वाले
दिल लगाने में
बसा के अपने हाथों
प्यार की बस्ती मिटाने में
ये ऐसे राहबर हैं जो भटकता छोड़ देते हैं
ये ऐसे राहबर हैं जो भटकता छोड़ देते हैं
ये ज़ालिम बेरुखी से दिल का शीशा तोड़ देते हैं
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं

हाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
बड़े मासूम बनते हैं
बड़े होशियार होते हैं
हाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
संभाल पाते नहीं वो
जिनपे इनके वार होते हैं
ये ज़ालिम इश्क़ वाले
इस कदर अय्यार होते हैं
जो इनसे दिल लगाते हैं
बड़े बेज़ार होते हैं
मोहब्बत का हसीं रिश्ता ये पल में तोड़ देते हैं
मोहब्बत का हसीं रिश्ता ये पल में तोड़ देते हैं
नज़र से लूट लेते हैं
तड़पता छोड़ देते हैं
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं
आ आ आ आ आ
हुस्नवाले खिलौना जान कर दिल तोड़ देते हैं
हुस्नवाले खिलौना जान कर दिल तोड़ देते हैं
आ आ आ आ आ
इश्क़ वाले लगा कर आग दामन छोड़ देते हैं

Blog Day :

4306 Post No. : 15578

Another wonderful discovery, another song that I had never heard before. The film is ‘Zindagi’ from 1956. The music composition is by Mohammed Shafi.

Mohammed Shafi is the name I was trying to get to also, on 30th April, which is the remembrance day for him. After getting the post in place for C Arjun that evening, I was not able to pull together this post, for remembering Mohammed Shafi Sb.

Once again, another very talented music director about whom, not much information is available. After much searching, I am able to locate a very brief article by a gentleman named Qaseem Abbaasi on the web site ‘Apnaarchives.org’. I am including some details from that article in this post.

He was born sometimes in 1920s. His father’s name was Majid Khan, who passed away when Shafi was very young. Majid Khan was the grandson of the renowned beenkar Bande Ali Khan. Bande Ali was also a master of swar-pradhan gayaki and was the brother of Abdul Karim Khan Sb’s father. As I searched for more details about Bande Ali Khan, I reached the website Swarganga Music Foundation, and a somewhat detailed article on Bande Ali Khan. Browsing through this article, I discover that one of the more famous disciples of Bande Ali Khan is Imdaad Khan of Etawah, who is none other than the grandfather of Ustad Vilayat Khan (28 Aug, 1928 – 13 Mar, 2004), the renowned Sitar maestro of India.

A little clue about his early years can be surmised from a family connection that is mentioned. Mohammed Shafi’s wife, Zeenat, was the sister of Ustad Vilayat Khan. Vilayat Khan Sb’s family came originally from Etawah (close to Agra in UP). Apparently, Vilayat Khan Sb’s grandfather, Imdaad Khan, moved from Etawah to Gouripur in Mymenshingh district in undivided Bengal (now in Bangladesh). Vilayat Khan Sb was born in Gouripur. Sitar and classical music was a family tradition with them, and the family and their music tradition is known as Etawah gharana.

It can be surmised that Mohammed Shafi Sb was also based in Bengal in his early years. One, being married to the sister of Ustad Vilayat Khan, a family based in Mymensingh at that time. Second, Mohammed Shafi started his career at New Theatres, Calcutta (now Kolkata), working as a musician and assisting RC Boral, Pankaj Mullick and KC Dey. It is suggested that he contributed as a musician to films like ‘Kapaal Kundala’ (1939) and ‘Aandhi’ (1940).

In early 1940s, along with the migration of many artists from Calcutta to Bombay (now Mumbai), Mohammed Shafi also moved to Bombay. Although not listed in Geet Kosh, Qaseem Abbaasi Sb has written that he assisted music director Bashir Dehlavi in the 1942 film ‘Ujaala’. In this film, Prithviraj Kapoor played the role of a sitar player, and apparently, some special pieces were composed by Mohammed Shafi for this film.

Later on, he had a long association with Naushad as an assistant music director. For the film ‘Mughal e Azam’, the sitar pieces were prepared/played by both Abdul Haleem Jafar Khan Sb and Mohammed Shafi. It’s said that K Asif used to send a car to pick both of them for playing Sitar for the background music.

He got his first break as independent music director 1946 with the film ‘Haqdaar’. He continued to work till mid 1970s, but has only about 22 24 films to his credit. The number maybe 23, if we consider ‘Badi Maa’ (1974) as a re-release of ‘Tanhaai’ (1961). In parallel, he continued to assist many directors as a musician and music arranger.  Following is the list of films for which has composed music,

  • 1946  Haqdaar
  • 1946  Kaango
  • 1947  Do Naina
  • 1947  Rishta (unreleased)
  • 1947  Shikaarpuri
  • 1949  Anokhi Sewa – along with Dhoomi Khan
  • 1949  Bedard – along with BN Bali and Ram Prasad
  • 1949  Gharaana
  • 1951  Hulchul – along with Sajjad Hussain
  • 1952  Annadaata
  • 1952  Krishna Kanhaiya – along with BS Kalla
  • 1953  Aabshaar – along with Ghulam Haider & Bhola Shreshtha
  • 1953  Daara
  • 1954  Baazooband
  • 1954  Mangu – 2 songs, rest by OP Nayyar
  • 1956  Zindagi
  • 1960  Mohabbat Ki Jeet
  • 1960  Shriman Balasaheb (Marathi)
  • 1961  Tanhaai – later released as Badi Maa in 1974
  • 1965  Kite Fight (Wo Kata)
  • 1967  Shrimant Mehuna Pahije (Marathi)
  • 1971  Iraada – along with Vitthal-Mumtaz
  • 1974  Bari Maa – same as Tanhai (1961)
  • 1975  Dayaar-e-Madina

To his credit – Suman Hemadi Kalyanpur sang her debut song in the film ‘Mangu’ (1954), a wonderfully soft lorie “Koi Pukaare Dheere Se Tujhe” under his music direction. And again, singer Hemlata made her debut under his music direction in the film ‘Iraada’ (1971) – the songs “Main Ankahi Kahaani, Sadiyon Ki Hoon Nishaani” and “Main Jaan Ke Badle Mein Le Loongi Dhadakta Dil”.

A connected piece of information is that he also gave music under different names – Shafi M Nagri / Shafi Nagri / Shafi. All the films that he composed under these pseudonyms are stunt / fantasy type films. The list is,

  • 1953  Shamsheerbaaz
  • 1954  Sher Dil
  • 1955  Carnival Queen
  • 1956  Baghdad Ka Jaadu
  • 1957  Diler Daaku
  • 1959  Chini Jaadugar
  • 1959  Circus Queen
  • 1966  Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chirag – along with Shaukat

[Author’s Note: The name Shaukat for the above listed film ‘Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chirag’ (1966) is most probably Shaukat Dehlavi.]
[Author’s Note: I thank dear Arun ji. His comment on two missing films by Mohammad Shafi prompted me to re check and update the list of films above.]

Adding the above listed eight films, the total films by Mohammad Shafi comes to 32.

In the latter half of 1970s, Mohammed Shafi’s health deteriorated, and his last years were very difficult. He suffered a stroke, which resulted in partial amnesia. It is said that he did not receive any help or friendly hand, from the industry, except from Rafi Sb who would visit him occasionally and quietly leave money under his pillow without telling him.

He passed away after long years of illness on 30th April, 1980.

‘Zindagi’ (1956) is produced under the banner of Kesar Films, Bombay and is directed by CL Dheer. The star cast is listed as Geeta Bali, Vijaylakshmi, Jaswant, Baby Naaz, Gulab, Rasheed, Sudarshan, Krishnakant, Tuntun, and Jagdish Sethi.

There are 8 songs listed for this film. Seven songs are written by Kaifi Azmi, and one song is by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Today’s song is that solitary song from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan.

The singing voices are of Sudha Malhotra, S Balbir and Jagmohan Bakshi. The song is beautifully structured around a very clever use of chorus lines, with clear demarcation of male and female chorus lines. The pace and the rhythm of the song is quite energetic. It seems to be a picnic song, from the manner of singing and the words being said. I request other knowledgeable readers to please add information about this song and the film.

Listen and enjoy.

[Editor’s Note – This song is the 300th song of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan in the blog as a lyricist.]

Lyrics

o teekhe nainon se sabko deewaana kar ke
ho aaja aisa vaisa koi bhi bahaana kar ke
ho aaja aisa vaisa koi bhi bahaana kar ke
kaise aaun ghabraaun maahi mere man ke
main chaloon to bairi jhaanjhar jhan jhan jhanke

aake aadhi aadhi raat ko jagaaya na karo
seeti maar ke yoon hamko bulaaya na karo
seeti maar ke yoon hamko bulaya na karo

ho phero aankhen na hamko mastaana kar ke
ho aaja aisa vaisa koi bhi bahaana kar ke
ho aaja aisa vaisa koi bhi bahaana kar ke
kaise aaun ghabraaun maahi mere man ke
main chaloon to bairi jhaanjhar jhan jhan jhanke

Today’s song is from film ‘Doctor Z’ from 1959.

The title seems funny, isn’t it? Somehow, I find that the film makers give bizarre titles to their films sometimes. Films with prefix Mr. or Dr. were plenty. The earliest such a Talkie film was ‘Mr. 420’ made in 1937. Later, ‘Mr. X’ was made in 1938. This was repeated in 1957 and 1984. ‘Mr. X in Bombay’ was made in 1964. ‘Mr. India’ came in 1961 and also 1987. There was a ‘Mr. Bechara’ in 1996, ‘Mr. Chakram’ in 1956, ‘Mr, Jhatpat’ in 1943, ‘Mr John’ in 1959, ‘Mr. Lamboo’ in 1956. ‘Mr. Romeo’ in 1973 and 1999. ‘Mr. Q’ in 1958, ‘Mr.Bond’ in 1992, ‘Mr. Azad’in 1994, ‘Mr .Dynamite’ in 1947, ‘Mr. Murder’ in 1969, ‘Mr. Qartoon, M.A.’ in 1958, ‘Mr. Sampat’ in 1952, ‘Mr. Toofan’ in 1963, ‘Mr. 100%’ in 2005, ‘Mr. Badmash’ in 2009, ‘Mr. Bhatti on Chhutti’ in 2012, ‘Mr. Hot and Mr. Cool’ in 2007, ‘Mr. Lonely Miss Lovely’ in 2004, ‘Mr. Prime Minister’ in 2005, ‘Mr. Singh Mrs. Mehta’ in 2009, ‘Mr. White Mr. Black’ in 2007, ‘Mr. ya Mrs.’ in 2005, The most hilarious title in this category was ‘Mr. Khujli’ in 2007 !!!

Starting with ‘Dr. Madhurika’ (1935), it was ‘Dr. Ambedkar’ (1989 and 2000), ‘Dr. Kotnis Ki Amar Kahani’ (1946), ‘Dr. Kumar’ (1944), ‘Dr. Ramesh’ (1949), ‘Dr. Vidya’ (1962), ‘Dr. Z’ (1959) etc.

The decade of the 1940s and the 1950s was the period when stunt and action films were made in plenty. There were specialised actors, producers, directors, composers and even specialised audiences too for such films. Stunt and action films was a very sweeping name for a genre which included several types of sub-categories. When I started studying these films, I found one kind soul – Mike Burnum -who identified and classified stunt/action films made in India, into sub categories. For the information of our esteemed readers, the different types within the generalised stunt/action films are…(in descending order of number of films made….

  1. Fantasy and Arabian  Nights  -92 films
  2. Horror – 67
  3. Jungle Thrillers (Tarzan/Zimbo/Zambo/Zangbo/Zingara etc)
  4. New Century Horror films ( Horror films made after 2000)
  5. Science Fiction
  6. Chillers
  7. Spies and Detective
  8. Super heroes / heroines
  9. Murder and Mystery
  10. Sword Fighting and
  11. Naag Films etc.

Today’s film ‘Doctor Z’, falls under Science Fiction category. Though it was a C grade action film, HFGK mentions it as a ‘Social’ film. May be, as it was not exactly a stunt film, the film may have been classified as a social film. The story of this film was just a one line story, expanded at convenience as per needs of audiences. Mahipal – a Police officer is after a gang of anti-national criminals, who want to steal a formula from a scientist, which can destroy a big country like India in just 2 minutes. He (naturally, compulsorily and as per the director’s directions) falls in love with the scientist’s pretty daughter to sing songs, when not on duty. The film ends on expected Happy Notes.

The cast of the film was Shakila, Mahipal, Helen, Krishnakumari, Mirza Musharraf, Sunder, Tun Tun and a host of other junior actors. The film was made by Baliwala Films. It was produced and directed by its owner Jal. There were two lyricists and the 8 melodious songs were composed by Music Director Manohar Arora. Now this Manohar was a separate, different and independent composer. Most sites and blogs mistake him for being Manoharlal Sonik, of Sonik-Omi composer duo. This is NOT so. He was different. 2 songs from this film have been posted on this blog and both the times he was mentioned as Manoharlal Sonik. I must confess that I was responsible for this mix up. I had made a comment in 2011 that he was Manoharlal Sonik of the duo, which was a wrong statement. 3 years after that comment the real information about Manohar came up, hence I am making this clarification, at this opportunity. I feel sorry that I had followed the wrong info track that time.

The composer MANOHAR ARORA was a Punjabi music director who came from Sialkot to try his luck in Bombay. His first film was ‘Raees’ in 1948. Then came ‘Josh’ in 1950, ‘Rangeele Musafir’ (1950), ‘Bhoole Bhatke’ (1952), ‘Jingo’ (1952), ‘Usha Kiran’ (1952). His best remembered film was ‘Chingari’ (1955). Then came ‘Passing Show’ (1956), ‘Mister Q’ (1958), ‘Dr. Z’ (1959), ‘Choron Ki Baarat’ (1960) and last film was ‘Do Dushman’ (1967). His name is mostly written as ‘Manohar’ only. This created a misunderstanding that he was Manoharlal Sonik, which is NOT correct.

From the cast of this film, Krishna Kumari is another name which causes confusion. There was a Krishna Kumari in silent films and talkie films of the 1930s. Then there was another Krishna Kumari who was from South and featured in dubbed and remade films. She too is different. Actress Krishna Kumari who worked in  Hindi films from 1948 to 1968 was another one.

Krishna Kumari (not to be confused with the 1930s actress of the same name nor the south Indian actress T. Krishna Kumari) was born Rajinder Kaur in Rawalpindi, Punjab state (now part of Pakistan) on October 3, 1934. Occasionally playing the heroine in B-grade films including ‘Vanraj’ (1952), ‘Gorilla’ (1953), ‘Black Rider’ (1960), ‘State Express’ (1961) and ‘Khush Naseeb’ (1964) she is probably much better known as a temptress or villain in the likes of ‘Baghdad Ka Jaadu’ (1956), ‘Zimbo’ (1958), ‘Police Station’ (1959), ‘Lady Of The Lake’ (1960), ‘Jaadu Mahal’ (1962) or dozens of similar action, horror and fantasy films.

Her debut came in the film ‘Girls School’ (1949), which also featured newcomers Geeta Bali and Shashikala, after which she appeared in ‘Nao’, which actually ended up in theaters first, releasing in 1948, just two months after her film ‘Intezaar’ (1948) was released. Film ‘Girls School’ was stalled due to the dispute between Amiya Chakravarty and Anil Biswas.

Krishna Kumari’s career lasted 20 years, and during that time she managed to chalk up an impressive amount of credits, even if most of the pictures she made were not considered important by critics. She acted in 117 films. Her first film on screen was ‘Intezaar’ (1948) and last film was ‘Jung Aur Aman’ (1968).

Hiralal is a familiar face to every fan of vintage Bollywood as he played countless character parts, often as the villain, in literally hundreds of films both big and small.

He was born Hiralal Thakur on March 14, 1912 in Lahore (now part of Pakistan) and began his career in silent films with AR Kardar’s ‘Safdar Jung’ which was released in 1930, while his second film, ‘Daughters of Today’, actually made it to movie theaters first, in 1929. He was under contract to United Players Corporation and made several silent pictures for them before making the transition to sound and moving on to other studios for films like ‘Pavitra Ganga’ (1932), ‘Seeta’ (1934), and ‘Blood Feud’ (1935).

Some of his notable fantasy, sci-fi and horror films include ‘Khooni Jadugar’ (1939), ‘Arabian Nights’ (1946), ‘Mehbooba’ (1954), ‘Hatimtai Ki Beti’ (1955), ‘Roop Basant’ (1955), ‘Sakhi Hatim‘ (1955), ‘Shah Behram‘ (1955), ‘Indra Sabha’ (1956), ‘Shaan-e-Hatim’ (1958), ‘Dr. Z  (1959), Dr. Shaitan (1960),  Jadoo Mahal (1962), Flying Man (1965), Gumnaam (1965), Sindbad, Alibaba and Alladin (1965), Love and Murder‘ (1966), ‘Sheba and Hercules’ (1967), and ‘Alibaba’ (1976). Hiralal worked continuously until his death on June 27, 1982.

He had worked in 203 films. His first film was ‘Pavitra Ganga’ (1932) and last film was ‘Kaalia’ (1981).

Now let us enjoy the comedy song from film ‘Doctor Z’. This was filmed on Sunder and Nasreen. This duet is sung by Balbir and Geeta Dutt.

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.


Song-O lily lily lily lily lily (Laalten)(1956) Singers-Balbir, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

o lily lily lily lily lily
o lily lily lily lily lily

“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.

“Baazigar”(1959) was produced by Ram Dayal and directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Mukul Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nirupa Roy, Jairaj, Tiwari, Romi, Nazi, Helen, Mridula, Rana, Samson, Rajan Kapoor, Jagdish Kamal, Poonam Kapoor, Bimla, Jeewankala, Rafiq, Hanuman, Balaram, Narayan, Shafi, Dhondhu, Bihari, Vitthal, Sundar, Shammi, Majnu, Tiger (the dog), Mushtaq (the horse) etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it.

Four songs from the movie has been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Balbir, Rafi and Geeta Dutt. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

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
Balbir + Rafi

Lyrics

tu jo kahe
taare bhi laa doon main
tere liye aankhen bichha doon main
main to dil de doon
arre main jaan de doon
aji waah waah waah waah
do do hain deewaane
mere parwaane
mushqil mein jaan meri phans gayi jee

haay haay haay haay haay haay haay
do do hain deewaane
mere parwaane
mushqil mein jaan meri phans gayi jee

kahaan jaayen gori
bholi nazar tori
dil mein hamaare to bas gayi ji

lattu hai tum pe jaise bhi chaaho ghumaaya karo
popat hoon tera
aise bhi mujhko bulaaya karo
aji dekha hai
kabhi ?? bhi
aisi soorat se ulfat main kya karoon baaba
do do hain deewaane
mere parwaane
mushqil mein jaan meri phans gayi jee

hoy
kahaan jaayen gori
bholi nazar tori
dil mein hamaare to bas gayi jee

dekha hai tum ko jab se hamen chaand pheeka lage
dil to wohi hai jispe tera teer teekha lage
aji maske se main na fisloongi
ye to marji hai dil ki main kya karoon baba
do do hain deewaane
mere parwaane
muskil mein jaan meri fas gayi ji

o ho ho
kahaan jaayen gori
bholi nazar tori
dil mein hamaare to bas gayi jee

hum hain deewaane
mar jaayenge dekh dar pe tere

kuchh soch le tu
ilzaam aayega sar pe tere
aji socha hai
aji samjha hai
chale aaye ho marne
main kya karoon baaba
do do hai deewaane
mere parwaane
mushqil mein jaan meri phans gayi ji

aisa hi hoga
kahaan jaayen gori
bholi nazar tori
dil mein hamaare to bas gayi jee
jee jee jee jee

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.
