ek time machine ka sawaal hai baba

I need a time machine. Ah yes, you will all also say the same; exactly, we all need a time machine. I want to go back into the previous century, and view all these movies that create so much mystery and intrigue. Every film that I am not able to find anything about, makes me want to invent a time machine, and fly back into the past and watch the films, and then come back and write a more informed article about it.

Par kya karen, science has made a lot of promises, tried to explain a lot of things, but has not been successful in communicating with the past. Oh how I wish it were possible. There are ten thousand reasons that I want this wish to be fulfilled, and majority of them are the old cinema that I just crave to be able to lay my eyes on. And this lacuna is only increasing by the day.

Here we are Yippeeing films regularly, and here I am, lost and thinking – here is a film I am writing the post for its final song to be posted. Today’s Yippeee films is ‘Madam XYZ’ (1959). And we have absolutely no inkling what this film contained, how did the storyline progress, how did the songs fit into the screenplay, how did the actors perform on screen, etc. Most such films are financially not successful and hence they are lost without anyone wanting to take care of them.

Ah yes, these are the “lost children” of the industry, whom no one cared for. These creatures were ‘conceived’, then ‘developed’ and ‘produced’ putting together many methods, and then they were finally ‘delivered’. But for some reason these ‘children’ were not accepted by the society. Mind you, nothing illegitimate about them. Just that many people, not many enough people took a liking for them. And so the very parents who had conceived and developed and delivered them, now chose to discard them on the trash heap. And no one bothered. No one paused to consider – these are legitimate creations, they have a certain content and a certain beauty, and more importantly, each one has a story to tell. And beyond that, even more important, each such offspring knew some very beautifully crafted poems and songs, that were probably sung to either empty halls or to un-appreciative audiences. Nobody, or let me say, not enough people paid up to watch these toddlers sing. Some of them; nay most of them had some very wonderful, some very touching, some very exciting melodies to share. But they were shunned, by the very people for whom they created this music. And the worst is, even their ‘parents’ stopped caring for them. Even they shunned them, and simply let them go.

So many of these new born babes were lost, some thrown in the garbage dumps, some even put to fire by greedy men who just wanted to take the silver thread from the adornment and ornamentation stitched into the clothes of these innocent, blameless and helpless children, uncared for by their own creators, who let them out without any support, to be lost in the vagaries of a cruel world, of a cruel and greedy industry. We are searching for more information, and yes, hoping against hope to trace the visuals. And then, when such pursuits all fail, then one realizes the utility of a time machine. Oh how I wish. . .

As I write the Yippeee post for this film today, I have gone back and listened to all the five songs that came before this one. And goodness, what a lovely set of creations these songs are –

Chali Chali Matwaali Hawaa”, such delightful melodious three some shared by Lata, Usha and Sudha.

Jaadoo Bhari Ye Chaandni”, such a magical number, making you feel the moonlight in the words, materializing the ‘pyaar ka samaa’ right in front of the eyes

Qadam Qadam Pe Bahaaren Lutaataa”, such a soft and romantic setup created so beautifully by Rafi Sb and Lata ji

Kuchh Meri Nazar Madhosh Hai”, another such soft romantic contemplation by Lata ji, ‘madhosh’ and ‘mastaani’ nazar, kya kehne

and “O Goriye O Poriye O Chhoriye”, such an unbelievable foot tapping number by Manna Da and Geeta Dutt, it takes all the persuasion to confirm that it IS Chitragupt and not Jimmy or Sardool Kwatra.

On listening to these wonderful gems, one just can’t help thinking of the film itself, and the people who created these delightful melodies. Luckily, in this case, we have ‘inside help’. Our own in-house encyclopedia, dear Arun ji, has seen this movie when it was released on the big screen, and he has provided us the story outline, in one of the previously posted songs. I reproduce here, the synopsis that he has shared earlier.

MADAME XYZ (1959) was a B/C grade stunt picture, under the banner of Neo Light films, produced by Ram Kamlani and Balawant Bhatt and directed by Nanubhai Bhatt.
This film was the ultimate in extremes that a hindi film can show.To see such films, one has to suspend the use of brain and normal thinking.

Radha Kishen has 3 daughters – Asha (Shakila), Laxmi(Nalini Chonkar) and Kirti(Purnima). They are shown as super-women. They are trained in Music, Dance, Drama, Riding, Driving, Martial Arts, Swimming, Flying Aircrafts (and all other skills I forgot to mention). They are kind, lovable, rich and God knows what else ! They have 3 boy friends – Suresh, Bhagwan and Sudesh respectively who are equally qualified like them.

A terribly rich friend of Radha Kishen, Raja Biharilal, on a visit to them is murdered in their house. Radha Kishen is arrested and given 15 days to prove his innocence. Raja Biharilal’s hugh wealth is in a safe,which has 4 keys. 3 Keys are kept with people in 3 corners of India, and the 4th Master key is here.

The girls and their friends start their chase of the killer and move from Qutub Minar to Brindavan Gardens to Jagannath puri to Calcutta and Punjab. They fight the criminals on road, in rail and in aircraft, as well as on a ship.

Finally they all gather in Calcutta, where they send a remote controlled riderless motor cycle after the killer (Pran) and arrest him.

Need I further tell you what happens next ? Of course I must (why only I should suffer alone?).

The end is sweet, father is released – ba-izzat, and the 3 daughters get married to 3 (idiots, you said?) boy friends.

The End (at last !).

This movie is a Neolite films production. It was produced by Ram Kamalani, Balwant Bhatt and directed by Nanabhai Mistry. The movie had Suresh, Shakeela, David, Nalini Chonkar, Purnima, Shammi, Bhagwan, Pran, Sudesh Kumar, Nana Palsikar, Kumar, Jamal, Hari Shivdasani, Hameed, Majnu, Genius, Raja Amrohi, Brahmadutt, Fazloo, Arvind Pandya, Douglas etc in it.

This song is sung by Lata ji. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

A delightful semi classical construction. Quite a wonder that the same music director has composed this aria, the foot tapper “O Goriye, O Poriye. . .” and the soft romantic “Qadam Qadam Pe Bahaaren Lutaata”, all of them together in this film. Chitragupt at his most versatile best.

With this song, the film ‘Madam XYZ’ now joins the ranks of the films with all their songs represented on our blog.

Yippeee. . .

As soon as he discovers that I have uploaded a new post, Arvinder ji (I should say, Dear Arvinder ji) is immediately on my case – “where are the songs that I have requested”. And so it transpires this time also. As soon as he became aware of my previous post (of Tuesday early morning), I have been getting calls and messages of all types reminding me of his list of requests for songs that are very dear, but are not easily available at this time. We had a small get together of our group yesterday afternoon. Arvinder ji was also present. And I don’t need to add much more to say how he urged me to post the songs he has requested.

Hullo everyone

Here is a typical Kishore Kumar song. Combining with RD Burman he gives us a bhajan, qawwali and Hindustani classical all at one shot. Such a song has entertainment value and Kishore Kumar doesn’t disappoint (has he ever?) And there are very few Bollywood actors who can carry it off with equal gusto.

Here we have our very own Sanjeev Kumar giving a paisa vasool performance.

In my family and friend circles, there are some musically inclined persons who are fond of Hindi film songs. Among them, I can find fans of Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Talat Mehmood etc as playback singers. But I have yet to come across within my same circles anyone who claims to be a fan of Mahendra Kapoor.
