#the Decade of Sixties – 1961 – 1970 #
————————————————————————
(Remembrance Day – Chitragupt – A tribute)

Today 14th January’2023 is the 32nd ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of music director Chitragupt. He was born on 16.11.1917 and he passed away on 14.01.1991.

On this occasion as a tribute to him I am presenting a song from a ‘1965’ Bhojpuri movie ‘Bhouji’ / ‘Bhauji’.

‘Bhouji-1965’ was directed by Kundan Kumar for ‘Kundan Films’. It had Kumkum, Sujit Kumar, Tiwari, Mukri, Helen, Gopal, Savita Chatterjee, Leela Mishra, Hari Shukla, Bhagwan Sinha, Tun Tun, Master Anil, Keshav Rana, Daya Devi, Amul Sen, T.N. Sinha, Gharib Das, Leela, Bihari, Sandow, Rama Shankar, Rajinder Azimabadi, Balwant Sharma, Bela Bose and others.

This movie has six songs – all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music for this movie was composed by Chitragupt.

Following is the list of songs in this movie:-

SNo. Song Title Singer/s
01 Phoolban mein phool ha gulaab Lata Mangeshkar, Talat Mahmood
02 Angoothiyaa nisaani le ja more raaja Lata Mangeshkar

04 Duniya mein ek se badhhkar hazaar Asha Bhonsle
05 Ham ghariban se bhayil pyaar Mohd Rafi
06 Naa kehu jaane naa kehu samjhe Manna Dey

One song from this movie sung by Lata Mangeshkar viz ‘ae chanda maama aare aawa paare aawa’ has been posted on the blog earlier on 04.11.2016. This song was presented with a detailed post about Bhojpuri movies by our Respected Sadanand ji.

Today we are going to listen to a song from the movie which is sung by Manna Dey. Lyrics for this song are by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

This song is about a mother’s sentiments for his child who has been separated from her… Only the audio of this song is available. I think video of this movie or its songs is not available.

Music is composed by Chitragupt.

Let us pay our tributes to Chitragupt on his ‘remembrance day’ today and listen to this composition by him.

Today’s song is from the film Nirdosh-1950.

There were 4 films with the same title – Nirdosh-1941, Nirdosh-1950, Nirdosh-1973 and Nirdosh-2018. The first film Nirdosh-1941 had singer Mukesh as Hero, opposite Nalini Jaywant and he sang his first film song on the screen. Film Nirdosh- 1950 was a film made by Filmistan Ltd.,Bombay and it was directed by Najmul Hasan Naqvi or simply Najam Naqvi. This shortening of his name had a history behind it.

Initially, when Najam came into the film line, he joined Bombay Talkies as an assistant doing odd jobs. However, soon ,looking at his interests, he was kept as a Continuity man in the direction department. In 1935, a handsome young man joined Bombay Talkies and the first film of Bombay Talkies-” Jawani ki Hawa”-1935 was made with Devika Rani and this young man-Najmul Hasan as the lead pair. The film was a Hit film. During the making of this film, he and Devika Rani fell in love. While their second film-” Jeevan Naiya”-1936 was on the floor, the Love Birds eloped to Calcutta. There was great commotion in the studio and everyone talked about it. The prestige of Bombay Talkies was at stake as the wife of the owner had run away with her lover.Eventually, Devika Rani was persuaded to return to Bombay. Najmul Hasan dared not come back. He continued in Calcutta, did some films and a roaring love affair with actress Kajjan, before migrating to Lahore.

The whole episode of elopement had become a matter of embarrassment for the continuity man; working in the same studio. His name too was Najmul Hasan. Because of the same name, this innocent chap -who had nothing to do with the elopement drama- had to suffer staring eyes and hush hush whisperings within the studio and the film circle of Calcutta !

He was Najmul Hasan Naqvi, born on 11-4-1913 at Moradabad-UP. He was working in Bombay Talkies doing odd jobs-continuity man and even as an actor in Achhut kanya-36. He was a very hardworking person. After this episode he changed his name to a shorter edition- Najam Naqvi.

He worked in the Direction department and his first film as an independent Director was PUNARMILAN-1940. He went on directing films like Raja Rani-42, Tasveer-43, Naya Tarana-43, Panna-44, Prithwiraj Sanyogita-46, Nateeja-47, Parayee Aag-48, Actress-48, Nirdosh-50, Rangili-52 and last film- Samrat-54.

In 1955, Najam Naqvi migrated to Pakistan and directed 7 films- Kunwari Bewa-56, Naghma e dil-59, Dil e nadaan-60, Qaidi-62, Ek manzil do rahein-62, Ek tera sahara-63 and lastly Payal Ki Jhankaar-66. Najam Naqvi died on 26-1-82 at Lahore. Due to the same name, many sites still mix up the filmography of these two artistes.

The cast of the film Nirdosh-1950 was Shyam, Rehana, Kuldeep Kaur, Om Prakash, K N Singh, Mukri and others. 3 Lyricists wrote the 10 songs of the film. They were S H Bihari, Asad Bhopali and RMA Khan. The Music Director was Shyam Sunder-one of my favourite MDs. He is one of the very few old time composers who composed some songs which will never fade away. He was not very prolific- just 20 films in a career of 10 years, but some of his songs are evergreen. he showed his talent right from his first film “Nai Kahani”-1943, by composing the beautiful song ” Neend hamari khwab tumhare”, sung so nicely by G M Durrani and sung on screen by the handsome B. Nandrekar.

To be famous and to shine in this world, mere Talent is not enough. You must also have Lady Luck with you. While it is generally true,it is more true in the case of our Film Industry.

It is said that LAXMI and SARASWATI do not stay together. Laxmi is the Goddess for Wealth and Saraswati stands for Arts,music and Wisdom. We have seen several examples of Actors,singers,Directors and composers,where,despite being talented,the person did not shine in life and had to remain unhonoured and unrecognised. But we have also seen cases where genuinely talented people in various fields do get honoured,recognised and become wealthy too.

So,what is the factor that binds Laxmi and Saraswati together ? It is ,Undoubtedly,LUCK ! Without having Luck,no one can get name,fame and wealth,however talented he may be.

But,what about those talented people who had almost everything coming their way,name,fame and wealth too,but just because of their own egos,bad tempers and bad habits,they lost everything and either died soon or spent their last days in neglect and sorrow ?

Yes,there are such examples too in the Film Industry. One such glaring example is that of Music Director SHYAM SUNDER. ( Another notable example is that of SAJJAD HUSAIN). Songs composed by Shyamsunder are one of my most favourite ones. His songs from Nai kahani,Bazar,Lahore and Village girl are to be remembered eternally.Bazar -49 song, ” Saajan ki galiyan ” is Lata’s No. 1 favourite song( so is mine ! ). The 6 songs of Noorjehan in Village Girl-45 are simply matchless.

Shyamsunder himself was a highly respected and preferred composer for singers and producers. He had the capacity to scale heights much higher than other composers of his time. But…Alas ! The habit of drinking and talking rubbish when drunk destroyed his career. Here is an anecdote of how much respected and remembered he was by the Ace singers like Noorjehan and Lata Mangeshkar…

Thirty five years after the partition and two wars between India and Pakistan; in the year 1982 the melody queen, Malika-e-Taranum Noorjehan visited India. It was certainly a grand occasion for millions of music lovers of the Indian sub-continent.

In her honour and to facilitate nostalgic music lovers, an impressive show was organised in Shanmukhanand Hall, Bombay which was attended by a large number of luminaries of Indian cinema. Notable amongst them were- Anil Biswas, Naushad, the maestro music composers and matinee idols- Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, Dilip Kumar & nightingale of India Lata Mangeshkar to name a few.

Noorjehan came to the dais with a thunderous applause from the jam-packed auditorium and after a brief speech; as expected, she sang her most popular melody- ‘Awaaz de kahan hai, duniya meri jawan hei’ she recorded in India for film ‘Anmol Ghadi’ -Music was composed by Naushad.

Thereafter, it was Lata to sing, who found herself in a very difficult situation owing to a completely charged atmosphere all around the auditorium. She kept everyone guessing about the selection of her song.

Lata came out with one of her endearing melodies- ‘Saajan ki galian chhod chaley, dil roya aansoo beh na sakey’ from the film ‘Bazaar’ music for which was composed by Shyam Sunder. The applause was beyond imagination. The memory of the completely forgotten genius music director Shyam Sunder came alive, when in her next round Noorjehan sang– ‘Baithee hun teri yaad ka ley karkey sahara’ another immortal melody from film- ‘Village Girl’, music for which was composed by none other than Shyam Sunder.

The audience was indeed spellbound. Every one thought as to why she chose a completely forgotten Indian melody instead of a large number of songs she recorded in Pakistan after migrating from her performing place of origin- Bombay . Perhaps, it was in view of the fact that the singer and the composer of the film ‘Village Girl’ were from Punjab .

The momentous event continued with lots of nostalgic and tearful exchanges and it became a history in the annals of pre and post partition Indian art, culture, music and all such related aspects of humane

Why such a legendary music- composer has completely been forgotten,who composed music for some of the classics of his time, such as ‘Village Girl’- 1945, ‘Devkanya’ 1946, ‘Actress’ and ‘Ek Roz-1947, ‘Bazaar’ and ‘Lahore’- 1949, ‘Dholak’, ‘Kale Badal and Alif Laila’ -1951 just to name a few.

In 1943, he composed music for the film ‘Nai Kahani’. An alluring song of G.M. Durani and others–‘Neend hamari khwab tumhare, kitne meethe kitne pyare’ which became an instant hit. Even today after a gap of more than seventy years, the melody richly deserves an eloquent place in the list of popular melodies of yesteryears.

In his next film ‘Village Girl’ -1945, Shyam Sunder came with flying colours, wherein Noorjehan sang some of her fabulous melodies viz–‘Baithi hoon teri yaad mein ley karkey sahara’, ‘Kis tarah bhulega dil’ & ‘Sajan pardesi, balam pardesi’. In these vital numbers, the feelings immersed in the lyrics -written by Wali Saheb- she was in her complete command. The singer did not merely sing the words inscribed in the lyrics, but the depth of feelings. The class of accompanying instrumentation and the matching orchestration was superb and the genius of the composer was distinctively visible.

It is needless to reiterate that as and when a list of immortal melodies of previous century of Indian sub-continent in general and Noorjehan in particular will be drawn; these numbers will invariably find a prime place, music for which was composed by a totally forgotten genius called- Shyam Sunder.

For Shyam Sunder, after the exit of Noorjehan from Indian film music, there came the film ‘Actress’ in the year 1948, wherein Mohammad Rafi gave his initial introduction to the music world by singing – ‘Hum apne dil ka fasana unhe suna na sakey’ . This proved to be Rafi’s initial introduction. .

The music-creating journey of Shyam Sunder can be matched with another maestro called Sajjad Husain, who also composed music for just 14 films, but composed some of the finest melodies of his era.

Both the masters were highly perfectionists; but ill-tempered and uncompromising. Shyam Sunder, additionally in view of his addiction to liquor and excessive drinking, occasionally uttered abusive language and consequently used to lose control over his head and heart. During the making of the film ‘ Lahore ’, he had some abusive interaction with Lata Mangeshkar; as such, they were not on talking terms for a considerable time.

In the year 1952, when the film- ‘Alif Laila’ was in making, Shyam Sunder died in the recording studio, owing to excessive drinking and consequent heart attack; the music thereby was completed by his assistant- Madan Mohan. Due to his spat with Lata,she had stopped singing for him,but on his request she sang a song in his last film, Alif Laila-1953. She knew his calibre as a composer !

Shyamsunder was born in Multan (now in Pakistan). He was an expert Violin player and used to play in Jhande Khan’s orchestra in the early stage of his career. He started with Punjabi films from 1939. He gave a break to Mohd. Rafi in Punjabi film ‘Gul Baloch’. Nai kahani-41 was the beginning of his bright career and village girl-45,Lahore-49 and Bazar-49 were his pinnacle. He composed 187 songs in 20 films.

Shyamsundar died on 15-7-1952.

Some years back, Lata Mangeshkar had been interviewed on rediffmail.com, on 7-1-2011, in which she gave some short memory clips of her famous MDs. About Shyamsunder, she had this to say……

” During the period of 1946-1947, I was an employee of Master Vinayak.

One day he summoned me to his house in Dadar and told me that Shyam Sudner had come and wants to hear you sing. I complied and sang a Bandish. There was no reaction on Shyam Sunder’s face. Days passed by. Master Vinayak met an untimely end. I was searching for work.

Then one day, Shyam Sunder called for me.

I have sung many melodious songs for Shyam Sunder. I remember a qawaali from the film Chaar Din. The singers included Rafi, Shivdayal Batish, Rajkumari, Hamida, Johrabai and Iqbal. This qawaali, Haseenon ki adaein bhi by Shyam Sunder was very challenging and consisted of difficult taans.

Our rehearsal was going on. I was the focus of his attention. He was keen to know how I perform on a song which had a Punjabi style. I sang all the taans much to the delight of Shyam Sunder. He told everyone, “This is how to sing a song in Punjabi style.”

Shyam Sunder was a jovial person. Due to some misunderstandings, I was not singing for him for a period of time.

One day, I received a message from him. He had composed a song especially for me. The song Tujhko Bhulana Mere Basme Nahi from the film Alif Laila was the last song that I sang for him. He met a sad, untimely death. The song from his film Bazaar-1949 ” Sajan ki galiyan” is my favourite.”

Today’s song is also a typical Shyam Sunder song, sung by Shamshad Begum. This is the third song from this film here.


Song-Gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke (Nirdosh)(1950) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-Shyam Sundar

Lyrics

na aaye thhe to zara itminaan thha dil ko
wo aa ke chal diye
phir bekraar karke mujhe ae

gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke
gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
judai mein rone ka saamaan karke

jaate jaate saath apne ae
dil mera lete gaye
dard wo mujhko tadapne ke liye dete gaye ae ae
mila ye humen unse pehchaan karke
mila ye humen unse pehchaan karke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke
gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke

chaar din ki chaandni thhi ee
phir andheri raat hai ae
phir wahi tanhaaiyaan hain
aur gham ka saath hai
bada dukh hua unko mehmaan karke
bada dukh hua unko mehmaan karke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke
gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke

Lyrics

Aao pardesi mere dwaar

aaye na khewanhaara
ab koi na khewanhaara
tooti aashaa ki patwaar
tumhaare binaa saara sansaar soona laage
tumhaare binaa saara sansaar soona laage
o o pardesi

jag saara hai sukh ka saathhi
wo dukh kya pehchaane
birhan ka dukh birhan jaane
aur na koi jaane
dukh aur na koi jaane
eena hua hai dushwaar
tumhaare binaa saara sansaar soona laage
tumhaare binaa saara sansaar soona laage
o o pardesi

Hullo Atuldom

Another date of October for which I always need to write out a post for.

It being the birth date of an actor whose work I began liking post 1975- “Sholay” to be exact. I liked the way he delivered his dialogues. Some dramatic dialogues which he had casually uttered are iconic and classic and stuff which fans quote as legendary.

Remember ‘mere paas maa hai’ it was not said forcefully or with banging of fists or any such heavy add-ons. He was also given dialogues which were comic in nature -for example the cricket commentary in English that has made “Namak Halal” a movie worth watching; he even managed to squeeze in some comedy intto the fight sequence in the climax of the movie. But I always loved the late night scene in Asrani’s office when Amitabh Bachchan calls Asrani and Dharmendra for a meeting to discus the situation between Vasudha and himself. I know I need not mention that I am talking of the Hrishikesh Mukherjee ’70s classic “Chupke Chupke” and the expression that he had when he said “for safety’s sake main woh bhi batadoonga”- priceless. He was so nice at depicting his emotions and I may have mentioned this a few times in earlier posts about how the scene between Sanjeev Kumar and AB Sr. in “Khuddar” was memorable as both the actors spoke with their eyes. An added advantage the film industry had when working with AB Sr. was he was good in action sequences too and is known to have enacted many of them without using a body-double or ‘stuntman’ (in filmy parlance). He managed to overcome his awkwardness where dance (a necessity in Indian movies) was concerned. He has also tried his hand at singing for his characters; for which initially, he was made-fun-of as he was considered to be a tuneless singer but he has sung and many of them have been very popular with his fans.

Today’s post which celebrates this all-time favorite actor of mine turning a year older or a step closer to 80 has a song from the 2003 (can’t believe this film was 18 years back, time has just flown) B R films production and Ravi Chopra directed “Baghban”. It had music by Aadesh Srivastava and Uttam Singh and songs were penned by Sameer. Alka Yagnik, Hema Sardesai, Richa Sharma, Sneha Pant, Udit Narayan, Aadesh Srivastava, Sudesh Bhonsle and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

This song is pictured with an emotional Raj Malhotra (AB Sr.) singing, and yearning for his wife Pooja (Hema Malini) who is staying with one of their sons and he himself with another son. The story of ‘Baghban’ was something which was popular in the 60s and early 70s; but even this movie was successful with the new generation moviegoers. This song can also been seen as proof of what I stated earlier in this post viz. “actors speaking with their eyes”; here it is Hema and AB Sr. They have played the old couple so convincingly. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and Alka Yagnik.

Here is wishing the (once) Angry- Youngman, Shahenshah of Bollywood, Star of the Millennium, Big B or AB Sr. (people in entertainment industry have been addressing him in this manner for a few years now) a Happy Birthday and lots of good health.

The human mind is constantly attracted by imaginary things.He would like to have supernatural powers and do things which he only dreams about. He knows he can not do so, so looks out for those who can do them. A normal person likes to see a man do super-human activity like fighting with hungry lions or teaching a lesson to Roadside Romeos or punishing wrong-doers etc. If possible he would like to do these things himself, but it is not possible for an ordinary man. If someone is thrashing a thief or stopping someone from troubling hapless women, the public gathers and cheers him. We have seen it many times.

Secrecy, Puzzles, riddles, Mystery and fantasy are the initiators of curiosity in Human Mind. The mind dreams of the things it wishes, but can not do and knows that it can not do. That is where the seeds of Action films and stunts are sown.

The film makers took advantage of this human nature and made films about supernatural heroes who rode Horses, fought 10 goons at a time, jumped into and out of fire with ease and generally staked their lives to save the poor and the weak in the society. The audience simply loved it and action films established themselves. There is nothing childish about it. These movies help the majority of moviegoers enjoy such superhuman acts vicariously.

When film making started in India, it was but natural, because of our heritage, that most initial films were mythological. With the beginning of silent films from Raja Harishchandra in 1913 to 1921 almost all films were Mythologicals.

The First off-beat film was ”England Returned or Bilet ferat” a Comedy film made by Indo British films, Calcutta, released on 2-2-1921.

The First fantasy film was ‘Princess Badar or The tale of Kamar-al-Zamin’ made in 1922 by Madan Theatres, Calcutta.

The First Costume film was ‘The song of the slave‘-1922,made by Photoplay Syndicate,Calcutta.

The First Crime film was ‘The Kala Naag or Triumph of Justice‘-1924, made by Kohinoor films,Bombay. The First detective film was ‘ Justice or Nyaya’-1925, made by Premier Photoplay, Poona.

And finally the First Action film was ”The choice of a Bride“-1929, made by Surya Film Company, Bangalore.

After this there were many Action films made in Silent movies till the last silent film in India-” Niyoti”-1934, made by Aurora Film Corporation, Calcutta, released on 15-9-1934.

( Thanks to Dr.R K Verma and his book “Silent Cinema”).

When the Talkie films started , here too Mythologicals led the list. However the First Action Film in Talkie was ” Dagabaz Aashiq”-1932, closely followed by another action film “Do Badmash” made by Imperial and Ranjit respectively.

After this there was no looking back. There was enough material available for Mythological, Historical, religious, social, fantasy and Costume films in India,with its rich Heritage, but for Action and Stunt film stories, movie makers looked to the west.

The legendary King Arthur, Robin Hood, William Tell, Zorro and Tarzan etc all became sources of inspiration for action and stunt films in India. Skillful adaptation and Indianization of western Heroes coupled with the fertile imagination of story writers in our studios provided enough fodder. It is through this that emerged the ideas of ‘Masked men’,’Hunterwali’ and various Baghis.

Out of these the Tarzan stories were more popular as they combined Mystery, jungles, superhuman powers and great strengths which tamed the wild animals. Countless films were made with Tarzan as the central character.

The original Tarzan story was written by Sir Edgar Rice Burrows and it was first published in 1912, followed by its 23 sequels. The story proved to be immensely popular. No wonder, then, that it attracted the Hollywood producers.

The First Silent film ” Tarzan of the Apes” was released in 1918 in which Tarzan’s role was done by Elmo Lincoln and Jane Porter was Enid Markey. From 1918 to 2008, Hollywood made 89 Tarzan Films.

The First Talkie film on Tarzan was ” Tarzan-The Ape Man ” in 1932. Johnny Weissmuller was doing Tarzan’s role and Maureen O’Sulivan was Jane in it.

Johnny was a German bred Romanian settled in America. He was an Olympic Swimming Champion with 5 Gold medals. The pair of Johnny and Maurine was very popular. Johnny Weissmuller did 12 films of Tarzan from 1932 to 1948. 6 films with Maureen, 2 without Jane and 4 with Brenda Joyce. After Johnny 5 Tarzan films were done by Lex Barker and 6 were done by Gordon Scot. After 1960, there were different Tarzan actors in every film.

The Chimpanzee “Cheetah” was there in films from 1932 to 1960, when he died.

In most films, the scripts were loyal to the novels. However, in the novel, Tarzan and Jane get married and they have a son too. But in films, they never got married and their son ” BOY ” was found and adopted by Jane.

Tarzan films attracted Indian film makers too.As far back as the first decade of Talkie films in India , an attempt was made to make films like Tarzan. The name was too obvious to be copied, so a new name was invented- ZAMBO. The adventurous producer Mohan Bhavnani always liked to do experiments and he made a film Zambo- The Ape man in 1937 (aka Sher E Jungle). It had almost a similar story like that of Tarzan but it was fully indianised. Obviously, this film became very successful, because Bhavnani made a sequel ” Zambo ka Beta ” in 1939.

In both the films the Hero was the same-Navin Yagnik. Navin was a well known stunt film actor who did social films also with the same ease. Navin was born in Calcutta on 3-10- 1912. His father was from U.P. and mother from Bengal. During school days, he was more interested in sports,dramas and oratory. He did not complete his Matriculation, but ran away to Bombay, to become an actor-against the wishes of his family.

He joined Sagar Films in 1930, as an Extra, without salary. After a few months he got Rs.35 pm, but no credited roles. After an year or so, he left Sagar and joined Mohan Bhavnani’s Ajanta Film company. He first worked in the film ‘ The Mill ‘-34. Unfortunately, this film was banned for 2 years. The film was based on a story by Munshi Premchand and depicted the poor conditions of mill workers in Bombay. The Mill Owners’ Association brought pressure on the Government and got the film banned. After 2 years, the film was released as ” Ghareeb Parivar”-36 aka ‘Daya ki Devi’. Two more films and Navin became Hero in the film ” Pyar ki maar”-35.

In her autobiography, actress Hansa Wadkar says,” My Hero in this film was one Navin Yagnik, a handsome boy from U.P. He was very shy and after the shootings, he would quietly sit in one corner reading something. He never joined our drink parties,nor did he participate in any other group activity. I was attracted towards him but he gave no response. He sent me an invitation card for his marriage, when it was fixed.”

He also worked in Minerva Movietone, Prakash pictures, Filmistan and other good banners. Some of his well known films were, Zambo-The ape Man-37, Meri Bhool-37, Divorce-38, Vaasanti-38, Son of Zambo-39, Main Haari-40, Jhoothi Sharm-40, Vasantsena-42, Raja Rani-42, School Master-43, Prithvi Vallabh-43, Chal chal re Naujawan-44 etc. His last recorded film was Bhagwat Mahima-55. In all, he worked in 30 films.

Navin Yagnik died on 28-10-1977.

Many films were made on Tarzan in India. Though there was a film ‘ Tarzan ki beti’ made by a Calcutta company in 1938, it was not actually a jungle film, belying its title. It took about 25-30 years to see a Hindi film of Tarzan. In the 60s there was a spate of Tarzan films. About 20+ films were made. Tarzan stories were more popular as they combined Mystery, jungles, superhuman powers and great strengths which tamed the wild animals. Countless films were made with Tarzan as the central character.

When the normal titles finished, the imaginative writers combined Tarzan with Aladdin, Delialah, Rocket, Gorilla, Mermaid, King Kong, Hercules, Cobra, Circus and even Fairyland. When this too was exhausted, they joined him with places like Delhi, spies like 303 etc. They gave Tarzan a Daughter also. When the Indianisation of Tarzan was complete, in came ZIMBO !

Whatever the title, the script ideas were more or less the same. It ensured that the Hero’s supernatural powers and strength was used and wild animals were shown in abundance.

There were also Toofani Tarzan (1937), Toofani Tarzan (1962), Tarzan Aur Gorilla (1963), Rocket Tarzan (1963),Tarzan Aur Jalpari (1964), Tarzan Captain Kishore (1964), Tarzan Comes To Delhi (1965),Tarzan And Circus (1965), Tarzan And King Kong (1965); Tarzan Aur Hercules (1966), Tarzan Ki Mehbooba (1966), Tarzan In Fairyland (1968), Tarzan 303 (1970),Tarzan Mera Saathi (1974), Tarzan (1985), Taarzan – The Wonder Car (2004).

Anyway we are talking about the film Zambo-The Ape man-1937 presently. The music was given by an extraordinarily talented artiste- Badri prasad. He was an actor, singer, Music Director, Producer, Director, Lyricist and a Choreographer in his last lap. I have yet to come across another artiste with so much talent. Additionally he was a Sanskrit pandit and wrote dramas for All India Radio also. We don’t find such people these days !

Film actor and a famous compere DAVID ABRAHAM CHEULKAR, popularly known only as David, made his Debut with this film. David Abraham Cheulkar (21-6-1909 to 2-1- 1981), popularly known as David, was a Jewish-Indian Hindi film actor and a member of Mumbai’s Marathi-speaking Bene Israel Jew community. In a career spanning four decades, he played mostly character roles, starting with the 1941 film Naya Sansar, and went on to act in over 110 films, including memorable films such as Gol Maal (1979), Baton Baton Mein (1979) and Boot Polish (1954), for which he was awarded the 1955 Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award.

He never married. He died on 2-1- 1981 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada of a heart attack at the age of 73.
Today’s song is sung by Sarla devi. It is the second song from this film here.

Today 26th September’2021 is the thirty-secondth Remembrance Anniversary of Legendary Singer and Music Director of yesteryears Hemant Kumar.

Hemant Kumar Mukhopadhyay was born on 16th June 1920 at Benaras, Benaras State under British India.

He passed away on 26th September 1989 at the age of sixty-nine.

As a fan of Hemant Kumar’s voice, I had always liked his singing and his compositions that he has given us in the Hindi Film Music. He also sang in many regional languages including my mother tongue – ‘Marathi’. Ravindra Sangeet sung by him in ‘Bengali language’ is an immortal gift he left for all music connoisseurs.

Here, I am not going to mention his long list of achievements and the various awards and felicitations he received in his career in Music.

Today, as a tribute to him on his ‘Remembrance Day’ I would like to present a song from the 1966 movie – ‘Biwi Aur Makaan’. I had noted this song long back i.e., in 2013 however it still remained to be posted. Later, I tried to get it posted on anniversary of Gulzar and Hemant Kumar, but it could not succeed.

It is a ‘saawan song’ and though the ‘saawan’ month is behind us by now, we still have ‘showers’ continuing in some parts. This song will join the ‘saawan song’ club where we have more than hundred songs already posted.

I became aware of today’s song long back when I was in my ‘teens’. I think I listened to it for the first time on ‘All India Radio’ Urdu service program. After that when I started collecting music ‘cassettes’ I got this song in the ‘Vintage Favorites – Hemant Kumar’ brought by HMV in 1986. I have earlier given the details of other songs in this compilation in my post on the blog.

‘Biwi Aur Makaan-1966’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Geetanjali Pictures, Bombay’.
It had Vishwajeet, Kalpana, Mehmood, Shabnam, Ashish Kumar, Padma Devi, Bipin Gupta, Badri Prasad, Kanu Roy, Sarita Devi, Keshto Mukherjee, Ajit Chatterjee, Moni Chatterjee, Brahm Bharadwaj and many others.

This movie had ten songs written by Gulzar and composed by Hemant Kumar.

Here is the list of these nine songs of ‘Biwi Aur Makaan-1966’.

From the table given above, we can see that so far only fours songs of this movie have been posted on the blog. Today’s song will be the fifth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

The movie which started its journey on 23.06.2009, already having’ a long run on the blog, seems to be taking another ‘marathon run’ to cover all of its songs on the blog 😊

Let us now enjoy today’s song composed and sung by Hemant Kumar. Lyrics are by Gulzar …

I hope readers will enjoy this song as I did …

बरखा रसीली जैसे तेरी हंसी हो
हंसदे ज़रा रस बरसे ए ए ए
तेरे लिए मन तरसे ए ए
तेरे लिए मन तरसे
सावन में बरखा सताए
पल पल छिन छिन बरसे ए ए
तेरे लिए ए मन तरसे

आज तो बरसने दे
इन बादलों को ओ
गोरी मिली हैं कोई इन साँवलों को
आज तो बरसने दे
इन बादलों को ओ
गोरी मिली हैं कोई इन साँवलों को
बरखा रंगीली जैसे नैन हो तेरे
नैन मिला रंग बरसे ए ए ए
तेरे लिए मन तरसे ए ए ए
तेरे लिए मन तरसे ए

सावन मे ए बरखा सताए
पल पल छिन छिन बरसे ए ए
तेरे लिए मन तरसे ए ए ए
तेरे लिए मन तरसे
