“Bedardi” (1951) was directed by Kidar Sharma for Ranjit Movietone presentation. The movie had Geeta Bali, Nimmi, Cuckoo, Jaswant, Amirbai Karnataki, Nazira, Manju, Rashid Khan etc in it.

Seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the blog in the past. Here is the eighth song from “Bedardi”(1951) to appear in the blog.
This song is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. Kidar Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

Only the audio of this lively song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

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

after this song, only one song from the movie is left to be discussed. This song- “Nanadiya jaane na de”- sung by Nimmi is apparently not available online. The record number of this song is not given in HFGK, so it appears taht the song was there only in the movie. Unless this final elusive song can be located, “Bedardi” (1951) will remain unYIPPEED in the blog.

“Darbaar” (1955) was a Golden Movie production. It was directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The movie had Mahipal, Chitra, Sunder, Tiwari, Kammo, Kamal, Niranjan Sharma etc in it, which suggests that it was a B grade movie.

Seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Today (20 may 2017) is the 33rd remembrance day of Hansraj Bahl ( 19 november 1916- 20 may 1984). On this occasion, here is the the eighth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Time to Yippeee another film. Today’s film is ‘Humjoli’ – not the one from 1970, but the one from way back in 1946. This film has 10 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Nine songs have already been showcased here on our blog. The last song for this film was posted in November last year. In that post, Atul ji has commented that the 10th song appears to be elusive, and is yet to be uploaded online. Today, as I checked for this song, I am unable to track it anywhere as yet. I could be wrong, as I have been earlier, maybe just limited by the way I searched for it. So I decided to upload this from my collection.

As per the Geet Kosh, the songs for this film have been written by Anjum Pilibhiti. Once again, not too much information is available about this songwriter, other than he was born in 1917 in the town Pilibhit; that he had a talent for poetry right from childhood, and that he got his first break in the industry with producer director Mehboob Khan, in the film ‘Najma’ from 1943. The songs of this film became very popular and contributed to the commercial success of this film. With that, Anjum became a regular songwriter for films produced by Mehboob Khan. In his entire career, he wrote approximately a little over hundred songs in about two dozen films. His last recorded credit as a songwriter is for the film ‘Akaash Pari’ from 1958. His notable films are ‘Humayun’ (1945), ‘Zeenat’ (1945), ‘1857’ (1946), ‘Anmol Ghadi’ (1946), ‘Anokhi Ada’ (1948), ‘Vidya’ (1948) etc.

The music for this film was created by Hafiz Khan (not to be confused with Khan Mastaana i.e. Hafeez Khan Mastaana, as many online and print sources do).

The star cast for this film includes Noorjehaan, Jairaj, Ghulam Mohammed, Jillo Bai, Mukri, Zeenat, Agha Jaan, Shabnam, Hussaini, Majid, amongst others. The film is produced under the banner of K Abdullah Productions, Bombay and is jointly directed by Ismail Meman and Lukman Ahmed.

The earlier posted nine songs of this film are listed below.

1.       Ye Desh Hamaara Pyaara Hindustan Jahaan Se Nyaara
2.       Koyaliya Boley Jiya Mora Doley
3.       Mori Bipat Suno Girdhaari
4.       Dukh Dard Se Jag Mein Koi Azaad Nahin Hai
5.       Raaz Khulta Nazar Nahin Aata
6.       Phoolon Mein Nazar Ye Kaun Aaya
7.       Kab Tak Teri Duniya Mein Ye Andher Rahega
8.       Jag Ki Sewa Kar Le Bande
9.       Wafaayen Meri Aazmaaoge Kab Tak

 

Although not indicated anywhere in the Geet Kosh, the last song in the above list “Wafaaye Meri Aazmaaoge Kab Tak” is reportedly written by Shams Azimabadi, as per the person who has uploaded that song online.

In terms of the storyline, I have not been able to locate any information so far. I request other knowledgeable and more resourceful friends and readers to please add more information about this film and its songs.

About this song too, there seems to be a little difference about the name of the singer. As we listen to the audio clip, the voice sounds quite much that of Shamshad Begum. This is also the opinion expressed by some other friends. However, the Geet Kosh lists the singer’s name for this song as Noorjehaan. It is possible that the error may be due to what may be printed in the booklets and other print material used as the source for information. Given that Noorjehaan was the leading lady of this film, and given the content of this song, it is my personal opinion that this song would not possibly have been performed on screen by the leading lady. And since Noorjehaan sang playback mostly for her own self, this song’s playback credit to Noorjehaan is most likely an error. However, the other side of the argument also cannot be dismissed as is – which says that the possibility for the on screen voice and the voice on 78 rpm record could be different, as is the case in some known instances. So once again, I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information to clarify / confirm the correct situation as far as this song is concerned.

With this post, we close the account for this song on our blog – with 10 perfect hits to the boundary. Time to sing the ‘Yippeee’ ditty once again. 🙂

I was under the impression that “Johar Mehmood in Goa”(1965) was YIPPEED with the last song that was discussed in the blog. Now it turns out that I had incorrectly assumed that song as a multiple version song and that a song from the movie was actually left to be discussed.

So here is this missing fsong from “Johar Mehmood in Goa”(1965). This song is sung by Kamal Barot, Shamsdhad Begma and chorus. Akhtar Romani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a villain’s den song cum disguise song. The song becomes innocuously enough as we see a young Simi Garewal lip syncing in Kamal Barot’s voice in a gathering of Portuguese rulers, protected by lots of security men. The next thing we see is that I S Johar and then Mehmood turn up, disguised as female dancers and lip syncing in the voices of Shamshad Begam and Kamal Barot respectively. The movie watchers are intelligent enough to see through the disguise but the Portuguese people are fooled of course. And then the accomplices of our cross dressing heroes easily kill poff the security men one by one, and replacing them with their cut outs, and none of the Portuguese big wigs notices anything amiss, of course.

This archtypically I S Johar brand picturisation of this song can be enjoyed only if one suspends one’s sense of disbelief, of course.

With this song, “Johar Mehmood in Goa”(1965) finally has all its songs covered in the blog. With this song, “Johar Mehmood in Goa”(1965) joins the listof movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Jitni dil ki baat chhupaayi (Johar Mehmood in Goa)(1965) Singers-Kamal Barot, Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Akhtar Romani, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

jitni dil ki baat chhupaayi ee

The song which I heard today for the first time, made me to prepare a short write up on it. The song is ‘uthhaa hai ik toofaan seene mein hai talaatum’ sung by Shamshad Begum in the film CHILMAN/JANNAT (1949). The poignant song was written by M K Chibbar and was set to music by Hanuman Prasad. By the way, I came across for the first time, the Urdu word ‘talaatum’ in the song. According to http://www.rekhta.org, the word means ‘dashing of waves, sea storm, or upheaval’.

I had come to know from ‘Filmindia’ magazines of 1949 that the film was originally titled CHILMAN (1949) as all advertisements and the film’s still photographs were in the name of CHILMAN. From the magazines, it is not known as to when the name of the film was changed to JANNAT (1949). Both the films have the same banner and the same director, viz O S S Productions (Orient Sound Studio Production) and M Changezy, respectively. The main star casts in both these films were the same – Ajit, Rehana, Shanti Madhok, Pritama Malhotra, Nazir Kashmiri, Anwari etc.

The change in title of the film at the last moment before the release is not new to the Hindi film industry. Off hand, I can recall that the film’s title ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1939) was changed to ‘Aulad’ (1939) at the time of its release. Similarly, ‘Dil Ki Aawaz’ (1948) was released as ‘Anokha Pyaar’ (1948). However, in case of ‘Chilman’ (1949), the film, in its new avatar as ‘Jannat’ was released with the original 10 songs of ‘Chilman’ (1949) and two additional songs – both the songs being sung by Kalyani (I have not heard these two songs. So I am not able to say whether these two songs were sung by Kalyani Das or Kalyani Bai). In this context, I reproduced below the comments by Sudhir ji on my post zahe kismat teri mehfil se jo paighaam aaya hai which solves the ‘puzzle’:

Regarding the two films, ‘Chilman’ and ‘Jannat’; yes, they are the same film. Released once, and then re-released under a different banner (financial compulsions maybe – one banner selling the rights to the movie to another banner, and the re-release happens in a different name to avoid any legal complications). The peculiar thing would be that it is re-released within the same year. As you have pointed out, all songs of ‘Chilman’ are also present in ‘Jannat’, and that ‘Jannat’ has two extra songs.

This means that ‘Chilman’ (1949) was released first with 10 songs and later on it was once again released as ‘Jannat’ (1949) after some re-shooting and adding two songs as mentioned above. The change in banners of these two films was only cosmetic. ‘Chilman’ was produced under the banner of O S S Productions. When the ‘Jannat’ was released, the name of the banner was changed to Orient Sound Studio Production, the full form of the earlier banner.

Shamshad Begum is mainly known for singing light-hearted songs which have become very popular. But the song under discussion is a poignant one and in my view she has beautifully rendered the song keeping her high throated voice in control. I wish, music directors especially of 1950s and 1960s could have utilised her voice more often for such type of songs which in those years went mainly to Lata Mangeshkar by default.

This is the song which has one of the best amalgams of voice, melody and lyrics. Unfortunately, the song did not become popular probably due to the failure of the film at the box office.


Song-Uthhaa hai ik toofaan (Chilman/ Jannat)(1949) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-M K Chhibbar, MD-Hanuman Prasad

Lyrics

uthhaa hai ik toofaan
seene mein hai talaatum
uthhaa hai ik toofaan
seene mein hai talaatum
jee ho raha hai bekal
khushiyaan palat gayi hain
dil hai mera pareshaan
dil hai mera pareshaan
uthhaa hai ik toofaan
seene mein hai talaatum

kyun chaand chhup raha hai
bijli chamak rahi hai
main jaanti hoon meri
kismet pe hans rahi hai
kismet pe hans rahi hai
main ho rahi hoon hairaan
main ho rahi hoon hairaan
uthhaa hai ik toofaan
seene mein hai talaatum

maathhe pe kya likha hai
ye kaun jaanta hai
kismet zama ke meri
khaamosh ho gayi hai
khaamosh ho gayi hai
nikle na dil ke armaan
nikle na dil ke armaan
uthhaa hai ik toofaan
seene mein hai talaatum

aayi khabar khushi ki
ik aas paa gayi hai
ab hai gham e judaai
milne ki phir khushi hai
milne ki phir khushi hai
dil ho raha hai shaidaa
dil ho raha hai shaidaa
uthhaa hai ik toofaan
seene mein hai talaatum


This article is written by our dear Atul ji. You must be wondering, why this change in presentation style today. Well, this post is a very, very, very special occasion, or rather a momentous occasion, for our blog and for Atul ji. It is appropriate that this introduction and announcement be made on his behalf. 

THIS  IS  ATUL  JI’s  10,000th  POST  ON  THIS  BLOG.

This is a milestone, in comparison to which all our earlier milestones and celebrations pale in significance. A single-handed dedicated effort relentlessly in progress for the past almost nine years. I am sure it will take some time for all of us, for the significance and eminence of this event to sink in.
More special posts by the members of our bandwagon are in planning, starting tomorrow. So please keep connected and be a witness to this remarkable celebration.

As regulars are aware, I am based at Izatnagar, Bareilly at present which happens to be located between Delhi and Lucknow. In fact, this place is equidistant from both these cities. This fact had been commented upon by several regulars. Our Lucknow based regular namely Mr Avadh Lal even commented that I needed to visit Lucknow and meet the Lucknow based music lovers.

So this is the Yippeee song for today. I had promised Atul ji that I would do both the debut and the Yippeee songs today. The debut was easy, but getting to the Yippeee turned out to be a ‘tedhi kheer’ today.  Atul ji has shared with me a reference list which contains information about the near-Yippeee films. But then cross referencing and searching for the last missing songs becomes quite a job.  Anyway, finally I have a song that was blocking the Yippeee for the 1948 film ‘Ziddi’, just because it was not available online, and not available easily otherwise. Thankfully I am able to locate it in my collection and have uploaded the song online today.

Today (14 april 2017) as I write this post, I cannot help but remember Legendary Singer Shamshad Begum. It is after all her Birthday. It has been nearly four years since She left for her heavenly abode. Like two of my favourites S D Burman and C Ramchandra, She was born in and passed away in the same month. In her case it was the month of April. She was born on 14th April 1919 at Lahore (as She told me when I interviewed her) and passed away on 23rd April 2013. Today (14 april 2017) would have been her 98th Birthday.
