98th birth anniversary of Mohammed Rafi sahab

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 11

How the human mind works and the vagaries of human memory system, the scientists are still figuring out. I, for one, am very grateful that my memory brings forth to the mind a significant Rafi song to write a post at the most unexpected moment.

Since last few months, things have been very hectic at the domestic front, for no real tangible reason. They just are somewhat crazy, with stress levels running high on the work front too. Family events, travels notwithstanding, I should have written a few more posts this year, if only I could focus. So much so that I was on the verge of advising the HOD that the office needs a “self-help-stress management” “how to make the office atmosphere positive” “How to have healthy work relations with colleagues” sort of workshops/seminar. Not that I am going to do any such thing as advising the HOD, at-least I am trying not to. The thing is, a close friend expressed an opinion, if any such events are organised at the office, this will add to the stress levels of the already stressed-out officers.

I could also suggest some soothing music to be played on the non-existing PA system. There really are many classic music compositions, human civilization has produced. Many of them are having soothing qualities, some have the capacity to amaze the listener, that something like this could be created. There are many amazing and wonderful things, that we human can be grateful for. Sounds of music is one of them. The simplest things in life, which are free are to be valued and be thankful for. I thought the pandemic and tribulations it brought to humans, would make us all better humans, and teach us thankfulness, for many of the blessings which we all take to granted.

Post pandemic, as the world is back to normal, the massive restrictions during 2020 & 2021 are all but forgotten, which seem like a bad dream. Only sometimes I think of those days when work from home was possible, that was one advantage.

I honestly feel, it has had an impact on the evolution of humans. It has had huge psychological impact on young kids and elders. It is to be hoped that kids with the resilience of the young, will get past this bad dream. But the reminders of the bad dream are everywhere around us. The other day, I saw those round circles painted on the floor outside a supermarket. We were made to stand in queue to buy groceries, only a few people allowed inside at a time, to buy essentials for gods sake. If this was not a trial of psychological bondage training imparted to masses, then what was it? No wonder, humans, evolved after the pandemic are more disgruntled than before.

As the scientific community is grappling with the impact on the mental health (which is the new pandemic), lowered immunity in young and old, it is the responsibility and duty of able-minded people in the society to take great care, of their social surroundings, environment and individuals who may need a word or two, of care, of encouragement, of belief, of faith that things do not remain the same, they always change for the better.

No doubt that the research papers and thesis that come out on the impact of COVID – 19 on humanity, will point to the great stress it put on the psychological strength of the world’s populace. For this, the disease is not at fault, but the handling of the crisis, is the culprit. Having said this, I admit that being judgmental in hindsight is easy. But dealing with the aftermath is not going to be easy and it requires all the resilience of humanity.

I read about the voyager 1 & 2 sometime back and about the recordings of sounds to earth which they carried. With great hope I looked for the details of Indian songs in the 90 minutes music record. I found this Hindustani classical song is part of that.

Bhairavi: Jaat Kahan Ho Traditional Kesarbai Kerkar (vocals) with harmonium, Tanpura and tabla accompaniment Recorded in Bombay, April 1953 Hindustani Shastriya Sangeet (Indian classical music) 3:30

Hindustani classical music is an important component of sound of earth in all senses, so its inclusion in the above record is not a surprise. For our part, we have here a hindi film song which is a Hindustani classical song, by Mohammed Rafi Sahab. This is from the film Mrig Trishna(1975), written and composed by Shambhu Sen. This is a soothing, mental massage, critically acclaimed song. I was aware of the song and have heard it many times before today. I have also heard a great fan of Rafi Sahab, singing this song, and he was all praises for this rendition by the maestro. Obviously, he knows a great deal more about classical music than me. I had seen the song many times of TV too. So as soon as he said the mukhda before singing it, I was able to recollect even the filming of the song, and Hema Malini dancing to it. This was a few years ago. But today seeing the song again, I have also remembered reading somewhere, about the location shoot of the song. It is filmed at an actual location of some Haveli or fort is Rajasthan. The original art work and carpet and the carving in the pillars and jharokhas is visible in the hall.

Before starting this post I had checked and could not find the film Mrig Trishna (1975) in the list. But I just thought of checking it again, and now I find that 2 songs from this film are posted and this particular song is posted here.

So here we are, in the 99th year of Rafi Sahab, we are soon going to enter the 100th year of Rafi Sahab. I hope and pray, that we maintain the equilibrium as humanity and take inspiration from the personality of Rafi Sahab and his life’s principles.

Rafi Sahab, keep spreading happiness and peace to the world and beyond, even if the Voyager, has missed out on including your amazing voice. No doubt, as one of the super creations, Rafi sahab has made his contribution to this civilization and increased the ‘shobhaa’ of this ‘sansaar’.

I am posting this funny group song from the film Madhur Milan(1955), which the antithesis of Hindustani classical, which was my original idea for this post. Geeta Dutt and A. R. Ojha are giving company or having fun with Rafi sahab in the song composed by Bulo C. Rani. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Among the legendary associations, Geeta Dutt, is next to only Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan was also part of Madan Mohan’s team for a time. While Bulo C. Rani has composed many sweet renditions by Rafi sahab in early 50’s, some of which I have posted.

So we enjoy this social comic song by this team on this birth anniversary occasion.

Blog Day :

5267 Post No. : 17273

Today’s song is from a dubbed Tamil film bearing the name in Hindi as Ek Tha Raja-1951.

It is merely a coincidence that in a span of only few days, I am writing again on a dubbed film from south. That too, featuring 2 of the most influential, ambitious and successful actors who turned into equally successful politicians, formed new political parties and became Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu respectively – N.T.Rama Rao and M.G Ramachandran.

I remember once our Atul ji had mentioned in one of his posts on this Blog that ” Indians are fond of only 3 things on which they can talk incessantly for hours, namely Films, Politics and Cricket ” How true his words are, we all know. Among the friends, it is always one of the above subjects which is invariably discussed – nay, the conversions are not complete without touching these. We all know how these 3 topics influence social media or the people in India. And when films and politics are the subject matters for a single personality, then the emotions become very strong ! At least, this was the case till a few years back. The points of interest might have changed for the new generation and I am blissfully ignorant about the topics that interest the new generation.

However, there is a difference between the influence of Cinema in South India and the rest of the world. While cinema is a matter of entertainment in the rest of the world, In south India, cinema not only influences the social life, but also the politics in a major way. Popular Hero and Heroines in south are nothing less than Gods and Goddesses. The influence of cinema on politics in south can be proved by a simple fact that since last 50 years, the Chief Ministers of Madras/Tamil Nadu have been from the film world. Even in Andhra Pradesh ( the erstwhile A.P.) the C M was a leading Film star for some years. The film personalities wield considerable influence in Politics even In Karnataka and Kerala.

In Madras state and later in Tamil Nadu ( from 1969), right from Chief minister Anna Durai to Jayalalitha ( except Kamraj, for a brief period), the state politics was controlled by film artists like MGR, Karunanidhi etc. All of them invariably used the medium of Cinema to further their ideals and party agendas-of DMK or AIADMK.

Of all the CMs, M G Ramchandran or just MGR (Hero of today’s film Ek Tha Raja-1951), was the most ambitious person. He was keen that he should be well known all over India, especially North India. But his biggest problem was Hindi language. Modern technology solved this problem to some extent and he decided to make a Hindi film using the dubbing facility. Thus was made the Tamil film “MARMAYOGI” ( Ek Tha Raja-51 in Hindi). Newspaper “Hindu” briefly describes, how and why this film was made, in an article published in 2008. Here is an edited extract from the article…

” Perhaps the most historically significant film of 1951 was K. Ramnoth’s Marmayogi, a Jupiter Pictures’ production made at Central Studios in Coimbatore. This film, a folkloric tale of kings, royal mistresses and rebellious princes was written by A. S. A. Sami who had planned it specially for M. G. Ramachandran.

MGR who made his debut as hero in Sami’s Rajakumari -47, was aware that the success of that film was due to reasons other than himself. It had action, trick scenes, entertainment, sexy dances and the hero was only an auxiliary cause and nothing more. So MGR persuaded Sami to write a script built around him to boost his image as a social rebel, do-gooder, and a fearless fighter for the underprivileged.

MGR was an ardent filmgoer and a fan of Hollywood action heroes such as Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn. Fairbanks fascinated him more and he modelled himself after this famous American idol of the Silent Era. Sami worked on a script, a mix of literary and classical elements, for MGR. Inspiration was drawn from the novel “Vengeance” by Marie Correlli and the legend of Robin Hood! MGR was cast as the younger prince who rebels against a woman who usurps his father’s kingdom and lets loose a reign of terror. The king pushed off a boat by his mistress, and presumed to have drowned, escapes and lives in disguise as a mysterious saint (hence the title Marmayogi) and also parades as a ‘ghost’ at nights. The hero turns into a Robin Hood and leads the masses to victory. The name of the hero — Karikalan –— was deliberately chosen to impress and exploit the new feeling of ‘Tamilness’ among the people.

In films of this genre, names of heroes are mostly Sanskrit derivatives such as Veerasimhan and Pratapan. But Sami went for a typical Tamil name, after the name of the famous Tamil king, Karikala Chozhan.

Initially the title of this film was Karikalan. Later it was changed so that people don’t mistake it for a historical film. Ramnoth revealed his talents with his technically slick direction. Sama as the king, Anjali Devi as the power-crazy mistress and Sahasranamam as the elder prince performed their roles well. But the movie belonged to MGR. Every word of his dialogue was planned and written to build a special image for him and the lines had multi-layered meanings. One of the lines summed up MGR’s ambitions, personal, and political … “Naan kuri vaithaal thavara maatten! Thavarumey aanaal kuri vaikka maatten!”( It means- when I aim, I don’t miss. If it is to miss, I don’t aim !) This dialogue became popular and was greeted with gleeful screams in cinema houses. Strangely the Censors gave Marmayogi an ‘Adults Only’ certificate. Why? The film had a ‘ghost’ and hence the ‘A’ certificate!

Marmayogi’ received a warm welcome from the masses, especially the rapidly increasing rank and file of the MK party. With this film MGR’s image brightened and his career as a political figure was established. Soon he acquired a prefix to his name “Puratchi Nadigar”!( Revolutionary Actor ). “

The film was made in Hindi simultaneously, with dubbing of dialogues, but it did not evoke any enthusiastic response from the Hindi audience, perhaps due to the artistes being new and unfamiliar to them and the different style of acting of southern actors-dramatic- which was alien to Hindi viewers. MGR could not get what he wanted, but it was well compensated with extraordinary success of the Tamil film. The film was dubbed in Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Sinhalese languages and was successful everywhere-except the Hindi belt.

Let us now take the opportunity to know more about M.G.Ramachandran (MGR), like we did with N.T. Rama Rao (NTR) some time back. In case of these actors we can not separate their film life and political life. Maruthur Gopalan Ramachandran (17 January 1917 – 24 December 1987), was born in Kandy, Ceylon, in a migrated Keralite family. His mother tongue was Malyalam. Also popularly known as M.G.R., he was a politician, actor, philanthropist, and filmmaker who served as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu from 1977 until his death in 1987. He was the AIADMK’s founder and J. Jayalalithaa’s mentor. On 19 March 1988, M.G.R. was posthumously awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour.

In his youth, M.G.R. and his elder brother M. G. Chakrapani became members of a drama troupe to support their family. Influenced by Gandhian ideals, M.G.R. joined the Indian National Congress. After a few years of acting in plays, he made his film debut in the 1936 film Sathi Leelavathi in a supporting role. By the late 1940s, he had graduated to lead roles.

M.G.R. became a member of the C. N. Annadurai-led Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK party) and rose through its ranks, using his popularity as a film star to build a political base. In 1972, three years after Annadurai’s death, he left the DMK, then led by M. Karunanidhi to form his own party—the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK). Five years later, M.G.R. steered an AIADMK-led alliance to victory in the 1977 election, routing the DMK in the process. He became Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, the first film actor to become a chief minister in India. Except for a four-month interregnum in 1980, when his government was overthrown by the Union government, he remained as chief minister till his death in 1987, leading the AIADMK to two more electoral wins in 1980 and 1984.

In October 1984, M.G.R. was diagnosed with kidney failure as a result of diabetes. He died on 24 December 1987 in his Ramavaram Gardens residence in Manapakkam after a prolonged illness. M.G.R. is regarded as a cultural icon in Tamil Nadu and is regarded as one of the most influential actors of Tamil cinema. His autobiography Naan Yaen Piranthaen (Why I was Born) was published in 2003.

MGR, dominated like no other, the films and politics of India’s Tamil Nadu state. A charismatic actor and philanthropist, he commanded the idolatrous adulation of millions of Tamilians and became Tamil Nadu’s chief minister. His achievements in 3 fields, namely films, philanthropy and politics were remarkable considering his humble origins in Sri Lanka. Raised in poverty by a widowed single mother, he had nothing more than his good looks when he got his first break in “Sati Lilavati”, a Tamil film of the late 1930s. In the 1940s and 50s, the Tamil film industry was being transformed by screenwriters like Annadurai, Karunanidhi and others belonging to the Dravidian movement. MGR starred in many of the movies they helped make.

Annadurai became his mentor and MGR joined the DMK, Annadurai’s new Dravidian party. His films made MGR a matinee idol among Tamilians. He also started monetarily helping people in need, sowing the seeds for his reputation as a philanthropist. When Annadurai died as Tamil Nadu’s chief minister, MGR’s rival Karunanidhi assumed office. MGR accused him of defalcation and was kicked out of the DMK.

In 1977, MGR’s ADMK (later renamed AIADMK) party was swept into power. In his first term, MGR cleaned up corruption and carried out reforms like having an income limit for backward class people to be eligible for the reserved seats in government colleges and jobs. His reforms proved unpopular, so MGR became another corrupt Indian politician having learned not to rock the boat. Tamil Nadu stagnated during the rest of his reign. Yet his mesmerized legions of fans continued to vote him into power. His death in 1987 created a power vacuum that soon brought his old nemesis, the corrupt Karunanidhi, back into power. MGR was a complex man who triumphed over poverty and tried to improve the lot of the people who revered him. However, in the end, he was a God that failed.

As far as his appearance in dubbed Hindi films is concerned, MGR appeared in 11 films in Hindi. The first film was Ek tha Raja-1951 and the last film was Love in Kashmir-1976. These 11 films also included 2 films directed by him. They were Hamen bhi jeene do-1962 and Rangeen Duniya-1975. Compared to NT Ramarao with 23 films, MGR fell behind with just 11 Hindi films. Only initially he was keen and anxious to be popular in the Hindi land, but as the years passed by, his interest increased in politics and he was not keen on Hindi audience. Both NTR and MGR started with films and ended with politics enjoying the Chief minister ship of respective states. Except Jayalalita, no other artistes has achieved this anywhere else, so far. (Thanks to The Hindu, wiki, IMDB, nett4u,muVys, HFGK and my notes, for this ).

Today’s song is sung by Jikki, Zohrabai Ambalawali, a male voice and chorus. Jikki is an interesting Pseudonym used by the southern singer P.G.Krishnaveni. Though she was born on 3-11-1935 in Madras, her family belonged to Andhra Pradesh, who moved to Tamil Nadu. Her mother tongue was Telugu. Her uncle was a musician. She started her career by doing small roles in films. Her first Tamil film song became a super hit and then there was no looking back. She got married with A.M.Rajah, singer and M.D. They had 6 children.

In 1989, her husband died in a Railway accident on platform, before her eyes. After this shock, she took a long break and started again. She formed a Musical Troupe and did shows all over the world. She is supposed to have sung over 10,000 songs in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malyalam, Simhalese and Hindi. She sang 9 songs in 5 Hindi films, namely Ek tha Raja-51, Patal Bhairavi-52, Mr. Sampat-52, Gul E Bakavali-56 and Ram aur Rahim-68.

Enjoy this song now, composed by C.R.Subbaraman, who had also composed music for film Chandirani-1953.

Today’s song is an interesting Trio from an old film Ghayal-1951.

The cast of the film was Sulochana Chaterjee, Shaikh Mukhtar, Geeta Bali, Jawahar Kaul, Ramsingh, p.Kailash, pesi Patel, Honey O’Brien, Yeshwant Dave, Rewa Shankar Marwadi and many more. There were 7 Lyricists for 11 songs of the film (one of them is a 2 part song). Likewise there were 6 singers. The M.D. was Gyan Dutt. All the singers were well known, except the singer ‘ Bhola’.

Many people think that Bhola was Bhola Shreshtha, the M.D., but it’s not true. This Bhola was Bulo C Rani,M.D. He joined the industry to be a singer. Khemchand Prakash gave him an opportunity to sing in the film Mehmaan-1942. Later, the same year,Gyan Dutt also gave him songs.Bulo C Rani sang 34 songs in 19 films – initial in his own name, and from 1944 onwards as ‘Bhola’, as he had become a Music Director himself by then, from film Moorti-1944.

Bulo C Rani was a Science graduate. In those days of early cinema, most people who joined the film line were less educated and mostly from lower middle class or poor families. Not ALL of course. There were few highly educated actors, directors, MDs etc but their number was much less. Actresses like Renuka Devi, Vanmala, Nalini Tarkhad etc. were graduates. Actors like Ashok kumar and Ranjan were graduates. Artistes like Dewan Sharar, Devika rani and Shakuntala Paranjpye had International experience, they wrote books also. Director Nanubhai Vakil and actor Surendra were BA,LL.B.

Ramchandra Thakur, Producer and Director of film Ghayal-51, was also from Elite and highly educated class. He also wrote articles in magazines – before and after his film career. Ramchandra Thakur was one such scholarly person who was a Postgraduate and a prolific writer on films in English, Hindi and Gujarati, before joining films. Ramchandra Thakur was born in Suver of Sabarkantha district in Gujarat, on 17-12-1908. He moved to Bombay when he was just 9 year old. He pursued his higher education in Bombay and emerged as a scholar of Pali language. When he gave his M.A. final exam, he wanted to become a teacher in a college, if he got First class. If not, he would join the film industry as a director. During his college years he had written many articles on films. He had translated Sound Recordist Minu Katrak’s English works in Hindi and Gujarati.

When he did not get First class, he joined Sagar Movietone, in its Marketing department. After a few months, Baburao Patel took over from him and he became an assistant director to Chimanlal Luhar for the film Dynamite-38. Next, along with Virendra Desai ( Nalini Jaywant’s first husband), he became a co-director of the film The Gramophone Singer-38. His first film, as an independent Director was the Debut film of Snehprabha Pradhan – Civil marriage-40. Then he joined Ranjit Movietone. He directed mythological, Social and Comedy films. Art Director Kanu Desai’s film Geet Govind was directed by him. Thakur directed 20 films. He also wrote the script for the popular film Baiju Bawra-52. He produced 5 films. He directed 2 Gujarati films and wrote stories and screenplays for several Gujarati films.

He was an accomplished writer. He wrote 4 novels – Amrapali, Budhidhan Birbal, Prem Diwani and Urmila. He wrote several satirical commentaries too. He wrote a detailed article on Sagar Movietone and Chimanlal Desai in Gujarati magazine ” Jee”. His last Hindi film as a director was Nawab Sirajuddaula-67, which he had produced also. He died on 31-10-1992.

I do not know about the storyline of the film Ghayal-51. One of my favourite actors – Jawahar Kaul – acted in this film. He was a very handsome fellow and had an unique style of acting. It was his bad luck that he could not prosper or become “A” grade actor, as in his period the competition was severe and there were many better actors operating then.

Jawahar Kaul was born in a Nehru family on the 27th of September in the year 1927 in the place revered as the heaven of India – Srinagar, Kashmir. When Jawahar was six days old, his grandfather’s sister adopted him, and his surname was subsequently changed to Kaul. Kaul did his Intermediate from the Punjab University and then went to the town of Rawalpindi. After spending some time there, he decided to go to Mumbai. His parents were not in favour of it and hence he convinced them that he would complete his graduation from the Pune University. He had a deep attraction for films from an early age and hence wanted to try his luck in the industry. In the 1940s, Dadar had three studios – Ranjit, Shri Sound and Supreme and hence was the epicenter of Indian cinema. Jawahar made Dadar his address.

He was always short on money as his family wasn’t aware of his venture into cinema. He often slept at the studio of Prabha Pictures. Due to his Kashmiri background – his looks, complexion, height were impressive, and he started getting work soon. Jawahar started his career doing minor roles. He used to portray supporting characters in big films. He made his debut while playing actor Kishor Sahu’s younger brother in the 1945’s ‘Veer Kunal’. In this year, he was seen in the role of ‘Humayun Mahawat’ in ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’ which was made by Sohrab Modi. His first main lead role was in the flick ‘Khidki’ which was made in 1948. He was paired with Rehana for the same.

In Dadar, he became good friends with Radhakishan Mehra. Mehra used to live in the Lallubhai Mansion where Dada Bhagwan and Prabha Shankar Yagnik, ( brother of stunt film actor Navin Yagnik), the production managers of films used to stay too. It wasn’t long when Prabha Shankar and Kaul became good friends and started sharing their apartment. Their trio and friendship became popular in the film circle. Pyarelal Satoshi was friends with Radhakrishnan, and when he became a producer, he cast Kaul in his first movie. Kaul’s debut did average business, but the songs were a hit. Soon Kaul was seen in films like Azadi Ki Raah Par, Apni Chhaya, Kathputli, Pehli Jhalak, Laal Batti, Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam, etc. He was a legend of the Black and White Cinema. He was a superstar in the films made in the 1960s. Throughout his career, he worked only in a few selected flicks, but he was able to efficiently enrapture the audience’s attention.

Jawahar was never happy about his career- the way it went. He had wanted it to be more successful. Anyway after his last film Zalim-1980, he left acting and joined as a Production Manager with Jwala Pictures of Sandeep Sethi. After two years he became his Secretary for the next 17 years. Meanwhile he produced a film-” Agniputra “, with Mithun Chakravarti. It took a long time to finally release in 2000. Not only was it a flop, it also gave a heavy financial burden on him. However, his only son and producer daughter Shabanam Kapoor repaid everything. He died peacefully in Andheri,Mumbai, on 15-4-2019. Till the end, he looked after his school and college ‘ Children’s welfare Centre’, nearby.

Jawahr Kaul acted in 31 films starting from a small role inGeet Govind-1947. I remember his role in my favourite film Dekh kabira Roya-1957.(Thanks to Beete Hue din Blog).

Like most artistes, the music Directors of the early cinema had a tough time in their later life. Music of their era and style was no longer saleable due to the changing tastes of the people. Newer and younger MDs had a tough competition themselves. Thus these oldies were helpless. Damodar Sharma became assistant to Laxmikant Pyarelal, Madholal Master started his business of making Puppets (His Joker’s puppet was used by Raj kapoor in his film ” Mera Naam Joker”), Vithaldas Panchotiya, Krishnarao Chonkar, Badri prasad, Rewa shankar Marwadi etc. started doing small roles in films to sustain life. B.R.Deodhar opened a Music school.

Rewashankar Marwadi had acted in today’s film Ghayal-1951. I tried very hard to get some information about Rewa Shankar Marwadi, who was an actor, lyricist, singer and also music director in the 1930s and 1940s. However I could not get anything concrete. Anyway I found a note on this multi talented artist of the early era, written by Shri Dhananjay Naniwadekar aka Nani, on the old RMIM forum, some 15 years ago and adapted by me for this article.

Some of Ranjit Movietone’s earliest talkie films had music by Ustad Jhande Khan. Next came the trio of Banne Khan, Ganga Prasad Pathak and Rewa Shankar Marwari. None of that music was ever released on 78 rpm records. From 1938-39, the great duo of Gyan Dutt and Khemchand Prakash took over the charge of Ranjit’s music, later to be joined by Bulo C Rani. It was only around 1938 that Ranjit started releasing its film music on 78-rpm records.

Rewa Shankar Marwari’s association with Ranjit Films and films produced or directed by ex-Ranjit hand Jayant Desai continued in the
1940s. While it is a pleasant surprise that imdb.com has a page for an obscure name like ‘Rewashankar Marwadi’ at all, it is not surprising
that his filmography has been put together for the site by people who are far from competent at that sort of thing. He acted in 27 films, till 1955, sang 12 songs in 9 films and gave music to 21 films from ‘Veer Babruwahan’ (1934) to ‘Matrubhoomi’ (1949). After 1949 only, he started acting in films.

Rewashankar Marwadi and Gangaprasad Pathak gave music together for Gunsundari- 1934 as well as the film Raat ki Raani-35. Rewashankar Marwadi then made a pucca pair with composer Banne Khan and this pair gave music to 12 films, as a pair. ( Barrister’s wife-35, College girl-35, Qeemati aansoo-35, Noor-e-watan-35, Chalaak chor-36, Raj Ramani-36, Dil ka daaku-36, Sipahi ki sajani-36, Matlabi Duniya-36, Lehri lala-36, Ghazi Diler-36 and Mitti ka putla-37 ). In my opinion, they should be considered the first pair of MDs as well as Trend setters and NOT Husnlal-Bhagatram. Of course the number of films the H-B team did was more ( 52), but that is because after 1935, the speed of making films increased. More films were made in the 40s and the 50s than in the 30s. Moreover many composers left for Pakistan in the late 40s, so more films for less composers were available. Numbers aside, but lack of enough knowledge about the early films and artistes has led to much injustice to the Pioneers, for sure !

Today’s song is a Trio, sung by G M Durrani, Geeta Roy and Meena Kapoor along with Chorus. The song is in 2 parts recorded on one single record-on both sides. HFGK mentions it as 2 separate songs, but today’s song is the combined version running for more than 6 minutes. Durrani’s voice was suitable for soulful songs- like Talat. However personally I feel he was better than Talat, though Talat got more popular songs than him. Durrani acted in 16 films, wrote songs for 1 film (Nazare-49), gave music to 8 films composing 48 songs and sang 305 songs in 168 films.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 123
————————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this date viz on 3 October 2012, six songs from six movies were covered on the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6939 Chori chori tori aayi hai Radha Ham Hindustani (1960) Movie YIPPEED by now

“Teen Chor”(1973) is one such movie.

Now exactly ten years later to the date, here is the second song from “Teen Chor”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi Manna Dey and Mukesh. It is lip synced by m Prakash, Jeevan and I.S.Johar respectively.

Today’s song is from the film Hip Hip Hurray-1948.

How many of us really know what ” Hip Hip Hurray ” means in reality ? I am sure all of us have used this slogan several times during our school and college days, whenever we were celebrating a victory of our team over the rivals or someone had earned a coveted Reward or an Honour from the authorities. I have used it many times myself, as a victory slogan etc. That was not an age when we cared for the dictionary meaning of popular words or phrases like this one. The colloquial meaning was sufficient for us.

Out of curiosity, I checked a few English dictionaries like the Oxford and the Concise Cambridge dictionary. I found that ” HHH ‘ is a cheer slogan called out to express congratulations towards someone or something. It also denoted appreciation and approval of a victory. ” So much for the meaning of this phrase !

I could not find the story of this film, despite my efforts. There was another film made in 1984 with the same title. That film was based on an Inter-Collegiate Football competition, with a background of a love story of Raj Kiran and Dipti Naval. Then there was also a TV serial, with the same title. It ran from 21-8-1998 to 25-5-2001, with 80 episodes, followed by its second season with 45 episodes , after 15 years.

Anyway, the film Hip Hip Hurray-1948 was produced by Navin Yagnik and Hari Kashmiri, for the banner ‘ Kashmir Films’. The film was directed by Arvind Sen. He had earlier acted in 2 films-Doctor-1940 and Devdasi-1945. Hip Hip Hurray -1948 was his Debut film as a director and he went on to direct another 10 films till Nasihat (1986). His 2 films Muqaddar-(1950) and Kafila-(1952) became successful. They had excellent music also.

The film’s Music Director was Pt. Hanuman Prasad. The name Hanuman Prasad paints a picture of a Pehelwan playing kushti in an akhaada. Guru Hanuman and his akhaada in North India were quite famous. In the late 50s and 60s,there were many Wrestling Championships played in India. Many Pehelwans from other countries also came here to participate. Through these bouts the name of Dara Singh became very famous and later he appeared in Hindi films. The name Hanuman rekindles memories of that era.

However, one would be reasonably surprised if I tell that Pt. Hanuman Prasad ( Sharma/Triloki) was a well known Hindi Film Music Director in the 40s and 50s. Hanuman Prasad was a complete musical package, in the sense that he composed, wrote lyrics ( Gaali, Jasoos, Saudagar and Rasilee) and sung a song also in film( Rasili)-as Sharma. He even directed the film Rasilee-46. Geeta Dutt fans will remember him as the one who discovered her and gave her the first break in Playback singing in Hindi films in 1946.

There were 2 lyricists for 9 songs (actually 11 songs). The 9th song had 3 parts on 2 different records. It was sung by different singers). However, HFGK failed to credit every song with its lyricist’s name. The cast of the film was Balwant Singh, Navin Yagnik, Nirupa Roy, Mangala, Prabhu Dayal, Kumkum, Gulab etc. and a battery of comedians like Dikshit, Bhudo Advani, Radha Kishen and Gope.

Balwant Singh was an actor and a singer. He had no song in this film and from the film ‘Apni chhaya’-1950, with Mohd. Rafi giving him the playback, his singing came to a close.

BALWANT SINGH was born in Pandoga village of Hoshiarpur on 9-12-1918 in a Jahagirdar’s family. He was quite rich. After a training from Pt. Bhishmadev in classical music, he came to Bombay and joined Bombay Talkies at the age of 18 years. He first gave Playback in Jeevan Prabhat-37.In Nirmala-38 he acted and also sang a song. Then came Durga-39 where also he acted and sang. V. Shantaram cast him in Padosi-41 and his songs in this film were hits.

He was Hero in Darpan (1941),Swapna (1942),Malan (1943),Naukar (1943),Paraya Dhan (1943), Ashirwaad (1943), Collegian (1944), Dr.Kumar (1944), Bhanwar (1947,Hip hip Hurray (1948) and Apni Chhaya-(1950) etc. As a hero he sang less songs. His songs with Shanta Hublikar (Malan) and Parul Ghosh and Khan Mastana (Bhanwar) were very popular. He also acted in Nirmala, Vachan and Kangan.

In all, he acted in 18 films, sang 20 songs in 10 films and also wrote 6 songs in the film Sumitra-1949.

He married a girl from the royal family of Palanpur, Gujarat. After leaving films, he worked in All India Radio for 4 years. Then he settled in Ahmedabad, directing Dramas and Teaching music. Finally, he shifted to Ludhiana where, after a long illness, he died on 4-12-1985.

When Balwant Singh worked for A.I.R., it was claimed that he was responsible for the making of the famous morning Signature Tune of the A.I.R., and despite all presentations to several authorities, he was not given the credit for this. His son also claimed this in his interview given to our friend Shishir Krishna Sharma, for his Blog ” Beete hue din”. When I read his interview on the Blog and the You Tube, I wrote to Sharma ji, pointing out to him that this tune was made by the German refugee in India- Walter Kaufmann and NOT Balwant Singh. My E Mail dated 21-4-2021, to him is given here….

Dear Sharma ji,

I visited YouTube and heard your presentation.
I have also read what is written in your post about Balwant Singh on your Blog.
I would like to bring to your notice that it seems this Signature Tune of A.I.R. was NOT made by Balwant Singh,
but by one Walter Kaufmann, when he worked for All India Radio from 1934 to 1946.
There is a book ” THE MUSIC THAT STILL RINGS AT DAWN, EVERY DAWN”
Walter Kauffmann in India, 1934 – 1946
Author – Amrit Gangar
Published by Goethe Institut, Max Mueller Bhavan, Mumbai. 2013

Chapter 3 in this book is THE ALL INDIA RADIO, on page 36.

In this chapter it has been given in detail, with proofs in terms of several letters etc about the signature tune made by him for A.I.R.
There is an interview of the son of Dinkar Amembel, station Director, Bombay AIR, who says that Dinkar had played the Tanpura and
Mehli Mehta played the Violin.

I have this book, gifted to me by the author.

When you come back to Mumbai, you can visit me and see the book entries yourself.
I am fully convinced that the tune was done by Walter Kaufmann only.
It is possible that that is the reason why Balwant Singh’s claim was not entertained ever !

However, for whatever reasons, the said point was neither removed from his Blog nor the YouTube presentation.

Today’s song is sung by 4 singers namely, Geeta Roy, Zohrabai Amabalawali, G.M. Durani and Shamshad Begum. It is a good song. Enjoy….


Song- Jawaani hum guzaaren tumhaare aasre (Hip Hip Hurray)(1948) Singers- G.M.Durrani, Geeta Roy, Zohrabai Ambalabai, Shamshad Begum, Lyricist- Not known, MD- Pt. Hanuman Prasad

Music is an irresistible thing. It energizes the soul and is a great stress buster. Indian film music especially is very enchanting and melodious to listen.

Years back, during the age of black and white movies, there was not much variety in music. If you listen to old Hindi songs, you will find almost the same beats. The music was simple, yet it was very melodious. Singers like Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh, Lata and Asha were simply outstanding and still their magic is alive.

Although the times have changed and so is the pattern of music. There are varieties of music such as pop, rock, jazz and many more. But still if you compare a new old Hindi song (from 70s and 80s) with any of the latest ones, you will of course find a huge difference. New Old Hindi songs, though outdated, are still most demanded by the people.

The greatest appeal of the 70s is that it combines the simple and casual comfort of pop culture with the elaborate razzmatazz of disco combined with the introduction of electronic instruments and melodious compositions.

The new old retro music of 70s and 80s has done wonders in the Hindi film Industry in those times. These ‘New Old Hindi film songs’ are still favorites and not just among people of old age but also among youngsters. This is because of the fact that New Old Hindi songs used to have more voice transitions and high and low notes which makes their performance more appealing to the listeners. The New Old Hindi songs are always in, unaffected by latest ones.

Now what draws us to the swinging 70s is its rare combination of simple retro chick and disco dazzle. The decade in which women asserted their individuality through carefree dressing. An era when macho men wore florid shirts with broad collars. A time frame that broke out of the formal dress code to celebrate casual style and then climaxed the ‘me-decade’ as it was the beginning of ‘anything goes’ culture and a form of self-expression.

It was a period of ‘paradigm shift’ as far as the Bollywood heroine is concerned. Gone was the demure, submissive leading lady of the 60s and in stepped the empowered, modern heroine of the 70s.

Early 70s heralded with Mumtaz popularizing diaphanous fabrics and layered saris. Sharmila Tagore’s elaborate bouffant, arched eyebrows and Cleopatra-like winged eyeliner became her signature style. The mid-70s witnessed the simple and conservative chick of Hema Malini and Jaya Bhaduri.

The late 70s showcased the emancipated, modern woman whose clothes and accessories reflected her Westernized persona. The pleasantly plump form of a heroine morphed into the slim and lanky hippie look. Svelte Parveen Babi popularized the dancer’s leotard and body suit. ‘Bobby’ launched sweet 16, Dimple Kapadia dressed in true American High School style togged in miniskirts, bikini, hot pants and crop tops.

As for the Bollywood heroes of 70s , mixed era of romances and action flicks – saw a lot of variety from silk-lungi -kurtas and Guru Shirts favored by Rajesh Khanna and hardy denim jackets and bell bottom jeans ported by Amitabh and Dharmendra.

The first half of 70s was ruled by Rajesh Khanna and the latter half by Amitabh Bachchan, romances and then violent vendetta films.

And last but not the least, the 70s gave us excellent and retro songs and mega hits like ‘Sholay’, ‘Bobby’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Deewaar’ etc.

Here I leave you with my above thoughts to take you to today’s entertaining song. The song is sung mainly by Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle but voices of RD Burman and Bhupinder Singh also figure in chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and music is trademark RD Burman.

The song is picturised as a party dance song on Shashi Kapoor, Leena Das, Sarita, Sujata and many others.

Lyrics of the song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Hullo Atuldom

A very Happy Navaratri to all. The date corresponds to the first day after Amavasya in the month of Ashwin of the sixth month (as per the Solar Bengali calendar) and seventh month (as per the Indian National lunar calendar of the Deccan Plateau) overlapping the months of September and October of the Gregorian calendar. It is the Sharath Navaratri. The period when we worship the Mother Goddess in the form of Durga Lakshmi and Saraswati. Additionally, this is also the time when we have Ram Leela celebrations across the country.

That is why I have chosen a song featuring Ram Leela. We can see Dev Anand, Janakidas, Premnath, Paintal, on stage enacting the Lanka dahan part of the Ramayan. It begins with Seeta maiyya crying under a tree in Ashok Vatika and  Hanuman seeing her from atop a tree. Sita maiyya (who is the actress?) sees Hanuman when he falls from the tree (I don’t know if all Ram Leelas have such comic elements. Remember there was a similar comic Ram Leela in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ‘Naram Garam’). Ravan’s son Meghnad is played by Sharat Saxena. Did anyone recognize the Kumbhkaran? It is the actor who has a Guinness book entry for playing a police inspector maximum number of times. Yes, Jagdish Raj. Then we have two Hema Malini in the audience.

I could only recognize Manna Dey’s voice as the male playback, there is one more male singer. The female voice belongs to Anuradha Paudwal. The song is written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant Pyaarelal are the music directors. Also we can hear Dev Anand’s voice in all the dialogues in between.  All-in-all an entertaining song from the 1976 released Chetan Anand directed ‘Jaaneman’.

The storyline of the film had Dev Anand playing a taxi driver and Hema Malini in the double role of sisters -Santo & Banto. Plus there were Premnath, Ajit, Paintal, Janakidas Sharat Saxena Jagdish Raaj etc. in the cast.

I have read somewhere that it was a movie in the 25th year of Navketan Films. The movie has 6 songs and the blog has 4 of them (one is a three part song).  The last song from this movie was posted in 2016. Today’s song is sort of in the same category as the iconic song from ‘Munim ji’ (1955) – “O Shivji Bihaane Chale Paalki Sajaaye Ke

Born on 26 September, 1923, today is also the 99th birth anniversary of Dev Anand. With this song, we remember him and celebrate his birth anniversary.blog

Editor’s note:-This song is the 200th song picturised on Dev Anand in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 94 is the trigger for this post. A movie listed therein has only one song posted in the blog. Today is a good enough date/ day to have one more.

The list of songs that were published on this date ten years ago are:-

6670 Tumse hi roshan hai raat meri Lorie (1984) One song out of 4 covered by now

I am bringing on-board a song from the 1984 release “Lorie”. In this post Atulji has listed the cast of “Lorie”, and an outline of the movie’s plot- courtesy Prakashchandraji.

Today’s song (I think) is one that shows Geeta Malhotra’s (Shabana Azmi) love for children. It is written by Bashar Nawaz and Khayyam is the music director. Asha Bhonsle, Jagjit Kaur and Pamela Chopra are the playback singers used for this song. It is shot around popular spots of Mumbai like Juhu Beach, Chota Kashmir & the picnic spot that are inside Mumbai’s Aarey Milk Colony (which used to be a preferred picnic destination for most schools during my schooldays). The lasst stanza is at Borivali National Park which has since 1996 been renamed Sanjay Gandhi National park.

I was reminded that today is Shabana’s birthday when I saw ‘Rangoli’ on Doordarshan this morning. Wishing her all the best as she turns 72 today.

Blog Day :

5165 Post No. : 17131 Movie Count :

Hullo Atuldom

I am sitting to write a post to wish my favourite singer on turning an year older. The task is not easy. Because the blog has 2967 songs, from a possible 7874, leaving us with 4907 songs to choose from. So, the difficulty is of one-too-many to choose from. The task is further complicated when I have zeroed in on atleast 10 songs in the last few hours. I want to write about each and everyone of them.

The song that first came to my mind is from the 27th April 2001 released, Ram Gopal Verma produced and Rajat Mukherjee written & directed “Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya” (PTKK). It had Urmila Matondkar play a possessive, headstrong, young woman (Ria) and daughter of Suresh Oberoi- a businessman who is concerned about his daughter’s nature. Fardeen Khan played a married fashion photographer (Jai) and Sonali Kulkarni played Jai’s wife. Jai sees Ria in Goa and convinces her to model for his fashion magazine and she also falls in love with him. She is shocked to find his marital status when she visits his house and that he is happily married man.

In her obsession to be with Jai and marry him she tries various methods to disrupt his family life like attempting suicide & calling him to be by her side; creating a situation whereby his wife finds them getting intimate etc. She goes to the extent of even trying to murder the wife but Jai reaches in the nick of time, saves his wife and shows the father his daughter’s mental condition. The film closes with Ria in hospital and Jai feeling guilty for her condition. Urmila Matondkar walked away with a lot of praise for her acting.

PTKK had music by Sandeep Chowta who has been in the film industry since 1996 having made his debut in Telugu films. The lyricist for PTKK was Nitin Raikwar and the playback singers used were K.S. Chitra, Alka Yagnik, Sonu Nigam, Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Alisha Chinai, Sukhwinder Singh etc & our today’s birthday personality- Asha Bhonsle.

She had only one song in the movie but it was very popular back then and the choreography and picturization was classy.

I don’t think we have anything to write about the legend that Ashatai is other than that she kept reinventing herself through the 74 years that she has been in public eye.

The last film with a song sung by AshaTai came in 2020 in a movie called “Bhangra Paa Le”. She has sung for a few mother-daughter actresses like Tanuja and Kajol (there will be many more which the readers will recall).

She has sung songs under fathers and sons like SD Burman- RD Burman, Roshan- Rajesh Roshan and many more.

Sung with Kishore Kumar and his son Amit Kumar, Mukesh and his son Nitin Mukesh.

She has seen song recording style down the decades and has managed to mould herself accordingly.

I can go on & on about Ashatai’s versatility and control over her voice which she modulates according to the on-screen artist. I can list out all the languages that she has sung in. I can write about all the international artists that she has cut albums with over the years. I can write about how I was excited to see her in person at concerts in Bangalore. But let us get on to the song where Sonu Nigam and Sukhwinder Singh accompany her.

Wishing the darling of all Film Music lovers (across the world) a Very Happy Birthday. May she have Good Health and Cheer.

Blog Day :

5133 Post No. : 17090

Hullo to all friends

I know it is rather late in the day to wish a ‘Happy Friendship Day’; but as the saying goes ‘Better Late Than Never’.

This morning my husband had a confused look on his face when he started receiving Friendship Day messages. He asked me “when is this day?”. The reason behind the question was – he had received friendship day messages last weekend too, on July 30th to be exact.

My reply (after a lot of googling, need not be the accurate answer)- “July 30th was the International Friendship Day as recognized by the United Nations General Assemby in 2011.”
The next question followed “Then why I am getting messages today?”

My reply – “In India Friendship Day is celebrated on first Sunday of August for some decades now. Personally I don’t know when all this began”.

On thinking deeper, do we really need any of these special days? Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, Sibling Day, Grandparents Day, Son’s Day, Daughter’s Day, Friendship Day etc. Aren’t these relations part of our emotional framework? I can only see one purpose to these days- acknowledging the existence of these relations in our life when we are fortunate of them being there. Because we miss our friends, parents, and all loved ones when they are not there and away from us for some reason or they have been permanently removed from our life. It is good to appreciate them when they are there and not take them for granted.

Different matter that cynics would say the purpose of these DAYS is to increase the workload of postmen & courier services, greeting card makers and shops selling relevant gifts, flowers and chocolates. (good for economy Emoji) But let us not be cynics.

The first set of best friends or Best Friends Forever (BFF)- as the new generation would put it- were Krishna- Sudama, Karna- Duryodhana (my thinking, I may be wrong too).

All of us have our set of friends who have stood by us through thick and thin, in our good times and bad times. The ‘Friend in need is a friend Indeed” type. We have friends with whom we just need to see or dial and start talking as if there was no gap in between, as if we have been meeting or speaking every single day of the year. Today is the day to acknowledge the importance of all the friends in our life.

Do we have special songs for this occasion in Hindi Films? Yes of course. Any song with the words ‘yaar’, ‘yaari’, ‘dost’, ‘dosti’, will fit the bill for friendship day song and the blog has all the iconic and all-time hit songs that are marked in the ‘Dosti song’ and ‘Friendship song’ category.

August 7th happens to be the birthday of Suresh Wadkar. So we are having a song for Friendship Day in the voice of Suresh Wadkar. It is written by Khurshid Hallauri and composed by RD Burman. It is from the 1989 Vinod Chopra directed ‘Parinda’ a movie whose songs I simply love. The blog has three (there is two-version song) songs from this movie.

Prakashchandra ji had put a query in the comments section of the first song of this film “And Who is Khurshid Hallauri ??, the lyricist, Any one who has information about him, Please share with us.”
This is Avinashji’s reply to that query

“Here is a brief information about Khurshid Hallauri compiled from sources:
Khurshid Hallauri was born in 10 Feb 1938 in Mumbai (?). He is an Indian lyricist writing primarily for Hindi songs in Bollywood films / Albums.
Hallaur or Hallor village is located in Domariyaganj Tehsil of Siddharthnagar district in Uttar Pradesh, India. Domariyaganj is the nearest town to Hallaur village.

There are many of his videos on ‘Youtube’. But I think in movies he has only penned songs for ‘Parinda-1989’.”

Any further information on Khurshid Hallauri is welcome.

The song is filmed on Anupam Kher and Anil Kapoor who are childhood friends and are on the way to meet each other after a gap of some years. When the two were away -Anupam Kher for police training and Anil Kapoor for studies. The second singer for this all male duet is Shailendra Singh.
Thanking all my friends for being in my life and wishing Suresh Wadkar on his birthday.

[पेपर पेपर पेपर ]

[अंधा है क्या]
[चल]

एक दिन ज़रूर हमको मेहनत का फल मिलेगा
हम कामयाब होंगे दुनिया से ग़म हटेगा
जग में अमन रहेगा
सबकी खुशी में होगी यारो खुशी हमारी
जो यार की खुशी वो खुशी है हमारी

सीधी सच्ची राहें अपनाना चाहते हैं
कुछ बन के इस जहां को दिखलाना चाहते हैं
दिखलाना चाहते हैं
ताक़त से डरेगा
हर आदमी हमारी

[ऐसे नहीं बोलते भैया]
[ताक़त से नहीं’]
[प्यार से सागी से]

दुनिया को जीत लेगी सादगी हमारी
जो यार की खुशी वो खुशी है हमारी

[करण मुझे बहुत डर लग रहा है]
[डर मत पारो मैं हूँ ना तेरे साथ]
[करण मुझे कभी नहीं छोडना]
[नहीं पारो मैं तुम्हें कभी नहीं छोदूंगा कभी नहीं’]

दिल कहता है मुझसे
ऐसा भी कोई आए
जो प्यार से ये कह के’ मुझ को गले लगाए
मुझ को गले लगाए
चाँद मैं तुम्हारा
तू चाँदनी हमारी
चाँद मैं तुम्हारा तू चाँदनी हमारी
जो यार की खुशी वो खुशी है हमारी

बढ़ते हुये कदम ये हरगिज़ नहीं रुकेंगे
काटेंगे साथ जीवन
जब यार से मिलेंगे
जब यार से मिलेंगे
ज़िंदगी हम उसकी
वो ज़िंदगी हमारी
ज़िंदगी हम उसकी
वो ज़िंदगी हमारी
जो यार की खुशी है
वो खुशी हमारी
कितनी है प्यारी प्यारी दोस्ती हमारी
जो यार की खुशी है
वो खुशी हमारी
