“Black Shadow”(1961) was a stunt movie which was directed by Madan Mohan Mehra for Paul Productions, Bombay. This move had Nishi, Manhar Desai, Amrit Rana, Indira Bansal, Baburao, Sudha, Ramlal, Roshan, Menaka, Naseem, Narmada Shankar, BHaag Singh, Balraj Kapoor, Raju, Jaani Babu Qawwaal, Sheikh etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

The songs of this movie are as obscure as the movie itself. Posting songs from missing movies of 1960s was a project which was originally the brainchild of our beloved Khyati Bhatt who prepared an excel sheet of missing movies of 1960s. Sudhir Jee took upon this project with right earnesh and posted elusive songs from many of these missing movies.

929 movies were released during 1960s (1961 to 1970). At present, 873 of these movies are represented in the blog.

During the early days of this project (which started in 2013), I also used to cover a few missing movies, before Sudhir Jee took over full responsibility of this project. During the earlier days of this project, I covered the first song from “Black Shadow”(1961) which was this song. It was the only song from this movie that I could locate at that time.

Now, nearly seven years later, when I searched for the songs of this movie, I was able to locate another song. And what a song it turns out to be. It is an all female duet sung by Shamshad Begam and Sudha Malhotra. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Harbans.

Going by the lyrics, I guess that it is a Punjabi style stage performance dance song where one female is dressed as a male and singing in Shamshad Begam’s voice whiile other female, playing a female sings in Sudha Malhotra’s voice.

Only the audio of this “expression of love” genre of song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Nazar hai kaanton se teekhi (Black Shadow)(1961) Singers-Shamshad Begam, Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Harbans

Lyrics

nazar hai kaanton se teekhi
badan hai phoolon se halka
nazar hai kaanton se teekhi
badan hai phoolon se halka
humaari jaan le lega
ishaara tere aanchal ka
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya
balle balle
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya

saja ke resham ka patka
ho mere dil ko de jhatka
hawa mein kyun ude zaalim
pahan ke joota makhmal ka
ho sun mere haaniya haaye
ho sun mere haaniya

balle baale
ho sun mere haaniya haaye
ho sun mere haaniya

ho o o
kashmiri sebo ki laali
chhalke tere gaalon se
saawan bhi sharmaaye tere
ghoonghar waale baalon se

dil ko le dooba hai
dora tere kaajal ka
nazar hai kanto se teekhi
ho tan hai phulo se halka
humaari jaan le lega
ishaara tere aanchal ka
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya
balle balle
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya

saja ke resham ka patka
ho mere dil ko de jhatka
hawa mein kyun ude zaalim
pahan ke joota makhmal ka
ho sun mere haaniya haaye
ho sun mere haaniya

ho balle balle
ho sun mere haaniya haaye
ho sun mere haaniya

o o o
rasmon ki zanjeer tod kar
aa gayi teri baahon mein

dekh goriye dol na jaana
pyaar ki lambi raahon mein
jeewan bhar ka saath hai apna
khel nahin pal ka

nazar hai kanto se teekhi
badan hai phoolon se halka
humaari jaan le lega
ishaara tere aanchal ka
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya
ho balle balle
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya

“Baazi”(1968), not to be confused with the well known “Baazi”(1951) was directed by Moni Bhattacharya for Golden Films Production, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Helen, Ansari, Nazir Hussain, Ullhas, Chans Usmani, Amar, Manmohan, Keshto Mukherjee, Pinchoo Kapoor etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Aa mere galey lag jaa o jaane jaana 7860 9-Apr-2013
2 Pyaar ki ye baaten hamko na samjhaao 7949 21-Apr-2013
2 Ek anaar do beemaar badi mushqil hai 15143 29-July-2019
2 Dil tootaa roye nainaa 15440 17-Feb-2020

Here is the fifth and final song from “Baazi”(1968). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

This song is quite a remarkable song. It is picturised as a stage performance song on Helen and Waheeda Rehman. Helen plays evil queen and Waheeda Rehman her daughter. The evil queen regards herself as the prettiest female around and she would not hesitate to get prettier females killed, even if she happens to be her own daughter.

This is a very long song, more than ten minutes long. The picturisation also shows several small time actors as well.

I think that this song must be one of a kind for lyricist Shakeel Badayuni too. This must be one of the very few Helen dance songs for him.

Lata Mangeshkar had sung five female duets in the movies of 1968. Four of these duets are already covered in the blog. So, with this song, all the five female duets of Lata Mangeshkar from movies of 1968 are covered.

With this song, “Baazi”(1968) joins movies that have all their songs covered in the blog and the movie thus gets YIPPEED.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, a post waiting for some time now to come on board. This post and this song is specially for dear Avinash ji. 🙂 🙂

As you listen to the song, and the words settle down in the mind, you can almost imagine – Avinash ji, on his flight back from Kenya to India, thinking about this song. And then the landing at Mumbai, then passing thru the immigration and baggage collect. He bumps into an old friend while waiting for the bags. The friend asks him where from he is returning. Avinash ji says, Kenya. The friend says – अरे यार, वो भी कोई जगह है देखने की, see, I am returning from Barcelona, now that is a place to visit. And instantly Avinash ji breaks into this song, telling his friend “Tum Ne Dekha Kya Bhala, Gar Na Dekha Aafrika”. And there is a loud applause from the crowd waiting for their baggage.

And then, Avinash ji decides that this song must also be screened for the musical bandwagon on our blog. The Atulites must be made aware – they have missed something significant in life – “तुमने क्या देखा भला, जो ना देखा आफ्रिका”.  🙂

The song is performed as a club dance cum stage dance setting. A fiesty rock and roll number, which should have been heard more. But maybe then, the 1960s was overflowing with such rollicking dance numbers. The film itself, of course did not seem to have made any impact, and so this superb song seems to have dived below the radar of listeners.

The first one to make an entrance is Bela Bose, all made up as a native African belle. Next on the scene is Bhagwan Dada, also in an African attire and face wash. The first stanza goes by. And then, in the second stanza, we have Chandrashekhar make his appearance – a white man, suited and booted, riding in an open car. He declares that he was on way to America (jeez) but then the beauty of Africa and the African ‘माहजबीं’ made him change his mind. Quite a stretch of imagination here by Bakshi Sb (I mean Anand Bakshi 🙂 ), calling a dark and dusky damsel as ‘माहजबीं’ (literal meaning – moon faced).

And then we are on to the third stanza, in which Bhagwan Dada, feeling threatened by the invasion of the white male competitor, advises his heart throb that the fair color is not so fair, if the heart is not in the game.

In the interludes, we see the audience as well as a quartet of sinister looking ‘thugs’ who are apparently up to no good, and most likely are looking for somebody. Could be the scenario is that Bhagwan and Chandrashekhar are on the run followed by this quartet, and they both mingle in with this performance, trying to hide behind the disguises. Now isn’t that so original 🙂

The film is ‘Hum Deewaane’ from 1965. Produced under the banner of Young India Entertainer, Bombay, the film is directed by Bhagwan himself. The star cast is listed as Mumtaz, Chandrashekhar, Bhagwan, Helen, Iftikhar, Anwar, Agha, Maruti, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Prem Sagar, Rajan Kapoor, Kanchanmala and Bela Bose.

The songs are written by Anand Bakshi, and the music is by C Ramchandra under the name of Anna Saheb. This song is an all male duet in the voices of C Ramchandra himself, as Chitalkar, accompanied by Mahendra Kapoor.

Goodness, almost one and a half years since the last post in this series. I need to pull up my socks. 🙂

 

Song – Tum Ne Dekha Kya Bhala, Gar Na Dekha Aafrika (Hum Deewaane) (1965) Singer – Chitalkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Anna Sahab (C Ramchandra)

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 6
——————————————————————————

“Arpan”(1983) was produced and directed by J Om Prakash for Filmyug Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Reena Roy, Parveen Babi, Raj Babbar, Preeti Sapru, Shashi Puri, Sujit Kumar, Sulochana Latkar, Dina Pathak supported by Sudhir Dalvi, Ranveer Raj, Tom Alter, Vikas Anand, Sunder Taneja, Harjeet, Feroz, Vishwanath Shetty, Shafiq Pathan, R.R. Somaiya etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

The movie made its debut in the blog on 21 january 2010 with the song Pardes jaake pardesiyaa bhool na jaana piyaa . The second song was discussed one week later on 28 january 2010 and it was Likhne waale ne likh daale .

For the next ten years, no other songs from this movie were covered. Then there was sudden activity exactyly ten years later and the third song from the movie was discussed on 21 january 2020, exactly one decade after this movie had debuted in the blog. This song was Mohabbat ab tijaarat ban gayi hai Avinash Scrapwala, who is very enthusiastic about the “blog ten year challenge”.

Seeing that the second song from the movie was covered on 28 january 2010, today presents us with another “blog ten year challenge” opportunity as far as this movie is concerened. So here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is picturised as a stage dance song on Parveen Babi and others. Jeetendra is seen among the audience.

I find this song so reminiscent of “Asha”(1980) songs where too Jeetendra would be seen witnessing the stage dance performances. That movie had Reena Roy instead of Parveen Babi. This resemblence is not coincidence. Both these movies were by J OmPrakash. His stories used to be similar. Jeetendra used to be a fixture in his movies. and the titles of his movies would start from the letter A. He produced 23 movies in his career, styaring from “Aas Ka Panchhi”(1961) till “Afsaana Dilwaalon Ka” (2001). 22 of his titles started with A. Only exception being “Bhagwan Dada” (1986), after which he reverted back to his lucky letter A.

Music of his movies during that succeesful spell (Apnapan, Asha, Arpan) used to be by Laxmikant Pyarelal. That is the reason why the songs of these movies sound similar to me.

Here is this nice song from “Arpan”(1983). Incidentally, all the four songs that have been covered so far were quite popular and they have remained so till now.


Song-Tauba kaise hain naadaan ghunghroo paayal ke (Arpan)(1983) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus
Lata + Chorus

Lyrics

taubaa taubaa aa aa

ik din lenge meri jaan ghunghru paayal ke

sharm ke maare laal pad gayaa rang meraa baadaami
chhanak chhanak ke gali gali mein karen meri badnaami

taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke

kaise koi bhed chhupaaye ae ae

kaise koi bhed chhupaaye ae
ghar kaa bhedi lankaa dhaaye
dede ke main haari saari raam raheem ki kasmen
aisaa lagataa hai ye nigode nahin kisi ke bas mein
hindu hai na musalmaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke

chhup ke gali se kaise guzroon
chhat se main neeche kaise utroon
chhup ke galii se kaise guzroon
chhat se main neeche kaise utroon
kabhi kabhi main sochoon inko phenkoon abhi utaaroon

bharte hain logon ke kaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke

jab chham se ye baj uthhte hain
pag men kaanten chubhte hain haaye
jab chham se ye baj uthte hain
pag mein kaanten chubhte hain
meethhaa meethhaa dard nigodaa mere man se nikle
inhen nikaaloon pairon se to jaan badan se nikle
mere dil ke hain armaan ghunghruu paayal ke
ho mere dil ke hain armaan ghunghruu paayal ke

taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
ik din lenge meri jaan ghunghru paayal ke
ho taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
ik din lenge meri jaan ghunghru paayal ke
ho taubaa kaise hain naadaan ghunghru paayal ke
ik din lenge meri jaan ghunghru paayal ke

Hullo Atuldom

Happy festival at the outset.

A festival that goes by various names :- Makara Sankranti (AP, Karnataka, Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra), Pongal (TN & Pondicherry), Lohri (Punjab, Haryana, Delhi), Sakraat & Makraat (Bihar, UP, Uttarakhand), Uttarayan (Gujarat, Diu, Daman), Suggi (in parts of Karnataka), Magh Saaji (HP), Ghughuti – (Kumaon), Makara Chaula (Odhisha), Kicheri (Poorvanchal, East UP), Pousha Sankranti (Bengal and North East), Magh Bihu (Assam), Shishur Sankraat (Kashmir ), etc etc. Outside of the country, in some neighbouring Asian countries to be exact, it is celebrated as Maaghe Sankrast – Nepal, Tirmoori – Sindh Pakistan, Songkran -Thailand , Pi Ms. Lao – Laos, Thingyan – Myanmar, Mohan Songkran – Cambodia etc. Basically we are all celebrating the transition of the Sun across the Equator, on it’s journey from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere.

Each region of India have their own ways of celebrating the event but as I have come to understand there are a few things common to all –Jaggery, til (also called gingelly, or sesame seeds), sugarcane, and freshly harvested ears of corn, wheat or even turmeric (in South India). Then of course the children enjoy themselves with kite flying which takes on the form of competition at times. So let us say Happy Festival. Tamil Nadu has its festivities spread over 3-4 days culminating in what is called Mattu Pongal – celebrated the next day of Sankrant with races with cattle involved. (PETA has tried to bring some order to the extent to which the animals can be made use of, and the conditions in which the races take place).

Last weekend, I was lucky to be asked to join my Chacha and Chachi, to an evening full of OPN songs by a newly formed music group. The members of the group were out to entertain themselves and showcase their talent among their close friends and relatives. The closest anyone of the group had come to anything Bollywood was when the hostess’s father had his ardent fan moment when he came face to face with OP Nayyar sometime in the 70s or 80s. That man was a self taught Harmonica player and encouraged his children and wife to sing along. And the wife and daughter of the (now) deceased man were at the forefront of the group which had female and male singers who sang in their own voices without aping any of the originals and that was a welcome change. The group presented medleys of songs with similar beats- the trade mark tonga-beat songs, and songs dipped in Punjabi folk tunes. The evening began with the song from ‘Sambandh’ – “Chal Akela Chal Akela” and then one song followed the next. The evening climaxed with songs that fell in tune with “Sar Pe Topi Laal Haath Mein Resham Ka Roomal”. In between there was an instrumental rendition of songs from ‘Kashmir ki Kali’, ‘Ek Musafir Ek Haseena’, ‘Kismat’ and ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon’ using the saxophone by Shri Shyam Raj ji who (if I heard right) had been a saxophone player for many of OPN’s songs.

Let me add that we were invited to the evening because my cousin’s husband has taken up singing and joined this group post his retirement. It was a revelation that he sang so well. The first song he sang that evening was “Piya Piya Piya Mora Jiya Pukaare” and “Surma Mera Niraala” was his next. And I must say he “yodels” almost like the Kishore Kumar whose fan he is.

As is my habit (ever since I associated with this blog) the first thing I did on returning home was to look up the anniversary page of our blog and see what was the date of OPN’s anniversaries. Next I checked what songs of OPN are yet to make their appearance on the blog. I found many movies of the 50s & 60s with two or three songs left to attain yyiippeeeehood. Then I began looking up for associated videos on YouTube, these songs are not yet available on YouTube too. In fact only the audio of some songs are available and not the whole movie. So that makes reaching videos difficult. But we cannot let the occasion of remembering OPN go by without a song.

So here it is. A song from the film ‘Raagini’ of 1958. The film is produced by Ashok Kumar, jointly with TS Ganesh, and is directed by Rakhan. This movie had a song which was enacted on screen by Kishore Kumar and playback was by Mohd Rafi. Now I discovered another song, as I was hunting songs for this post, which is again classical raaga based and Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan and Fateh Ali Khan are the playback singers. On screen we have Padmini performing a classical dance and Kishore Kumar sitting on stage in a classical gaayaki mode and lip-syncing. A very uncharacteristic Kishore and a very uncharacteristic Omkar Prasad Nayyar who was popular as OP Nayyar. The song ends with Padmini matching steps to the brilliant tabla accompaniment.

As I was writing this post I recollected a post by Atul ji where he has mentioned about movies with names of popular actresses of the time but the actresses were not part of the cast of that particular movie, e.g. ‘Kalpana’ (1960) didn’t have Kalpana as heroine. An this film, ‘Raagini’ has Padmini as the heroine; Raagini the actress was her sister.

Let us enjoy this rare presentation, Kishore Kumar lip syncing a classical song in the voice of Bade Fateh Ali Khan.


Song – Chhed Diye Mere Dil Ke Taar Kyun (Raagini) (1958) Singers – Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan, Bade Fateh Ali Khan, Lyricist – Jaanisar Akhtar, MD – O P Nayyar
Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan + Fateh Ali Khan

aaaaaaa aaaaaaa

“Sangdil” (1967), unlike “Sangdil”(1952) is a less known movie. It was directed by Dharam Kumar for Alamdeep Productions, Bombay. This B grade movie had Manohar Deepak, Bhagwan, Johnny Walker, Surendra, Ameeta, Dara Singh, Anwar, Indira, Satish etc in it.

“Sangdil”(1967) had five songs in it that have been forgotten with time. But these songs are forgotten gems.

One song from “Sangdil”(1967) has been covered in the blog. Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kohli.

The song is picturised as a synchronised dance song on a stage, watched by a house full audience in a hall.

I am unable to identify the two dancers. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Lyrics

Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
o Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli

mehfil mein tumhaare jalwon mein
o o o
kya mujhpe qayaamat dhhaayi hai
kya mujhpe qayaamat dhhaayi hai
sau baar to dhhalka hai aanchal
sau baar ye nazar sharmaayi hai
sau baar ye nazar sharmaayi hai
ye mulaaqaat jaadoo asar nikli
kyun Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli

tum hosh mein rehna ae saaqi
o o o o o
mumkin hai rahe na hosh mujhe
mumkin hai rahe na hosh mujhe
ab mera sambhalna mushqil hai
behkoon to na dena dosh mujhe
behkoon to na dena dosh mujhe
saat rangeen pichhle pahar nikli
o Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli

“Jaagir”(1984) was produced and directed by Pramod Chakraborty for Pramod Films, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman, Mithun Chakraborty, Shoma Anand, Amrish Puri, Preeti Sapru, Danny Denzongpa, Ranjeet, Beena Bannerjee, Azad, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, R.S.Chopra, Bob Christo, Tarun Ghosh, Iftekhar, Kamal Kapoor, Praveen Kumar, Pran, Subroto Mahapatra, Baby Pinky, Sujeet Kumar, Mac Mohan, Master Ravi, Amol Sen, Asit Sen, Sunder Taneja, Ashalata Wabgaonkar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

One of these songs was a new year song. Today (1 january 2020) is an ideal occasion to cover this song.

So here is this new year song from “Jaagir”(1984). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a stage dance performance on Zeenat Aman, Dharmendra etc. House full audience, including Raj Kishore, Subroto Mahapatra, Amrish Puri, Shoma Anand, Ranjeet, Preeti Sapru, Praveen Kumar,Sunder Taneja(anouncer) are present on the occasion. Amrish Puri and Ranjeet receive call (on landline phone, brought to them on their chairs) that their nefarious business has been foiled and the main person was donning an orange boiler suit. And Ranjeet recalls having seen this boiler suited man onstage. So he obviously plans his next move as soon as the song finishes. 🙂 Our villains never act till the song performance is over !

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy new year 2020. 2020 has a nice sring about it, especially because we are already familiar with 2020 format of cricket :). Let us hope that this year will see quick fire action in our lives and also in the blog, similar to the action that we are used to seeing in a 2020 game of cricket.

With this song, “Jaagir”(1984) makes its debut in the blog.

My affair with Sadhna started very tiny. The film was ‘Ek Phool Do Mali’ (1969) and the song was “Sainyaan Le Gayi Jeeya Teri Pehli Nazar”. That image of a beautiful Kashmiri village belle, with that charming and becoming smile captured my mind and my heart. She was being blackmailed by Sanjay to sing a song for him, using her recorded voice in a tape recorder, which he threatened to make public. So in a manner of speaking, the song was of the ‘Dance Under Duress’ category. 🙂 She is somewhat letting it on that her song and dance is a make believe effort. But then Hindi films are Hindi films. And a tiny pre-teen mind is quite inexperienced in these matters; and quite easily enamored by that charming smile, and the gestures of endearment, howsoever artificial they may have been.

In the same year (1969), I also got to see ‘Inteqaam’. The storyline therein is a make believe endeavor to deceive a rich man and his son, and so I was not impressed with her presence and her beauty as much. ‘Ek Phool Do Mali’ would be the compass bearing for me for some time, till I got into my next crush. 🙂

Remembering Sadhna on the anniversary of her birth today – 2nd September.

It would be much later that I would realize that I had actually seen her much earlier in ‘Parakh’ (1960), which I had watched on TV. Actually, it would be many years after that TV viewing that I correctly identified the leading lady as Sadhna. For many years at a stretch, I used to believe that Nutan was the heroine in ‘Parakh’. Many years later when this error was set right in my mind, I went back to see this film once again, to make sure that I had finally identified her correctly in that film.

Later on, the mind got to see her other earlier films on the rewind –  ‘Hum Dono’ (1961), ‘Aarzoo’ (1965), ‘Love In Simla’ (1960), ‘Ek Musafir Ek Haseena’ and ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962), ‘Rajkumar’ (1964), and the quintessential ‘Mere Mehboob’ of 1963. This is the listing of films that I got to see earlier; of course the other films like ‘Prem Patra’ (1962), ‘Man Mauji’ (1962), ‘Wo Kaun THi’ (1964), ‘Waqt’ (1965), ‘Mera Saaya’ (1966), ‘Dulha Dulhan’ (1964) also followed, albeit later. The ‘Ek Phool Do Mali’ effect was repeated when I got to see ‘Mere Mehboob’. That scene of the first encounter between Husna (Sadhna) and Anwar (Rajendra Kumar) is one of the most unforgettable cinema moments in my mind. All the un-uttered emotions that were spoken just through the eyes, the only part of the face that is partially visible from within the burqa (veil covering the face), emphatically conveyed much more than any words.

Born this day in 1941, Sadhna would have been 78 today. She was born in Karachi, into a Sindhi family. When the partition happened in 1947, the Shivdasani family moved to Bombay. As she has stated in her interviews, she was interested in dramatics right from childhood, and used to participate in school plays. Her uncle (father’s real brother) Hari Shivdasani, was already an established actor in Bombay. Hari had started his career appearing in films, from 1934 – his first film being ‘Dharam Ki Devi’ (1935). So when Sadhna and her family moved to Bombay, she already had a mentor and a significant link into the film industry.

She was just fourteen, when this filmland connection, got her a bit appearance as one of the chorus dancing girls in the 1955 film ‘Shri 420’. Hari Shivdasani himself had a significant role in the film, as one of the coterie of crooked businessmen. The song is the iconinc “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh. . .”. Sadhna is one of the chorus dancers, quite easily identifiable, at least in the first half of the song. Hari Shivdasani is himself present in the group of guests at this party. [Note: Another very notable presence in this song is that of Jaikishan, the music director.] There is anecdotal material which says that Raj Kapoor was somewhat offended with Sadhna, on issues relating to hair style and make up etc., and that Sadhna did not complete the shooting of this song.

During her first year at college, producer director TN Bihari approached her for a secondary role in a Sindhi film ‘Abaana’, released in 1958. Sadhna played the role of the younger sister of the heroine, role played by Sheila Ramani. Star struck as she was, the teenaged Sadhna requested Sheila for her autograph when they first met for shooting. Giving her the autograph, Sheila commented that one day will come when she (Sheila) would be taking autograph from Sadhna – a prophecy that realized itself shortly thereafter.

Things moved fast after this. Sadhna photo appeared in ‘Screen’. The photo came to the notice of Shashadhar Mukhrjee, who invited Sadhna to join the School of Acting that he had established in Filmalya, his production studio. Sadhna joined. ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ (1959) was launched, with Nasir Husain as the director. S Mukherjee gave him the option to select a new heroine opposite Shammi Kapoor, and Nasir Husain picked Asha Parekh, also one of the students at the same school. Sadhna had to wait another year for her formal break into films. S Mukherjee announced ‘Love In Simla’ (1960) as the launch vehicle for his son Joy Mukherjee. The director, RK Nayyar, was also making his directorial debut with this film. Given the option by S Mukherjee, RK Nayyar picked Sadhna as the leading lady for the film. Her film career had now formally started.

For about a decade, her career was a rising graph, and her work was very much appreciated. She appeared along with practically all the big names of that era – Dev Aanand, Raj Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Shashi Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, Manoj Kumar, Joy Mukherjee, Dharmendra, Biswajit, Sanjay, Kishore Kumar, Feroze Khan, Parikshit Sahni, and yes, Rajesh Khanna – one film they shared credits for – ‘Dil Daulat Duniya’ (1972). About 30 films, in a career span of about 15 years, is the sum total of Sadhna’s body of work.

By the end of the decade of 1960s, Sadhna developed some recurring health problems and her films started getting delayed. 1974 saw the release of ‘Geeta Mera Naam’ and ‘Chhote Sarkar’. In 1975 came ‘Vandana’ and a much delayed ‘Amaanat’. After that, there is radio silence in her career, as she chose to stay away from films. Even earlier than that, HS Rawail opted for Vijayantimala for the leading lady in ‘Sunghursh’ (1968), after first considering Sadhna, and so did Pacchi, when he replaced Sadhna with Rajshri for ‘Around The World’ (1967).

Although Sadhna was the heroine of choice for ‘Love In Simla’, the director RK Nayyar (also her future husband), was quite openly unhappy with her looks. In his opinion, Sadhna’s forehead was wide enough to “. . . land a helicopter”. It was suggested that her hair style be changed. And after some research, the choice came to Audrey Hepburn’s hair style in films like ‘Sabrina’ (1954) and ‘Funny Face’ (1957). Audrey Hepburn sported a few locks of hair that were not brushed back, but were thrown forward so as to partially cover her forehead. The hairstyle was adopted, and yes, it became very popular in India, by the name ‘Sadhna Cut’.

Sadhna passed away in 2015, on 25th December.

Today’s song is solo performance on screen by Sadhna. The film is ‘Ishq Par Zor Nahin’ from 1970. The film is produced under the banner of Twinkle Star, Bombay, and is directed by Ramesh Sehgal. The cast of actors is listed as Sadhana, Dharmendra, Biswajeet, Kamini Kaushal, Abhi Bhattacharya, Jagdeep, Nadira, Leela Mishra, Randhir, Jagdish Raj, Meena, Madhumati, and Uday Chandrika.

There are 8 songs listed for this film, all from the pen of Anand Bakshi. The music is from the mind of SD Burman. Singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar.

The story is about two childhood friends, who fall in love with the same lady, who in turns, loves only one of them. The other person is not aware of this reality, and actually tries to get help from his friend to woo the lady. Hmm. . . reminds one of many films – especially ‘Sangam’ (1964). The story progresses on very predictable lines, with sacrifice at the end of the film, by the one who is earlier unaware of his friend’s love, and later regrets after coming to know the truth. However, it is the songs and the music of this film which are something great to write home about. Together, SD Burman and Anand Bakshi have collaborated in about a dozen films and majority of them have wonderful songs that have been hits.

This song is sort of an on stage performance by Sadhna. We can seen Dharmendra, Biswajeet, Abhi Bhattacharya and Nadira in the audience. Biswajeet, the unaware friend, thinks that this song is meant for him, and is quite happy. Dharmendra, who is aware of the triangle, and has been coaxed by Biswajeet to attend this performance, is quite visibly ill at ease during the performance.

I picked this song for the poignant and effective performance by Sadhna, for a song that is somewhat of a somber expression of serious love. The lyrics of this song are adapted from a traditional bhajan originally written by Sant Meerabai.

Lovely song, lovely rendition by a lovely Sadhna. Things can’t get much better than this for the tiny crush in my heart that still sustains.

Blog Day : 4045 Post No. : 15172

Today (15 august 2019) is the 73rd independence day of India. It is already evening and no post has appeared in the blog so far. But I will try and post topical songs today like we have always done in the blog on the past such occasions.

The first song of the day is from “Shaheed”(1948). This movie was directed by Ramesh Saigal for Filmistan. The movie had Chandramohan, Dilip Kumar, Kamini Kaushal, Ram singh, S L Puri, V. H. Desai, Shashi Kapoor, Raj adeeb, Prabhu Dayal etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past. One of these six songs was covered exactly nine years ago, and that was the most well known song from the movie, a patriotic song, viz Watan ki raah mein watan ke naujawaan shaheed ho .

Here is the list of the six songs of the movie that have been covered in the past:

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Badnaam na ho jaaye muhabbat ka fasaana 2035 8-Oct-09
2 Watan ki raah mein watan ke naujawaan shaheed ho 2790 15-Aug-10
3 Bachpan ki yaad dheere dheere pyaar ban gayi 12574 17-Nov-16
4 Aana hai to aa jaao 12579 18-Nov-16
4 Hain ham kahaan aur tum kahaan 12585 19-Nov-16
5 Aaja bedardi baalmaa koi ro ro pukaare (Shaheed) 15164 9-Aug-19

The seventh and final song is a stage song performed by kids and watched by elders. The stage performance is a patriotic song performance.

HFGK mentions Lalita Deulkar and chorus as the singer. I am not sure that I can detect Lalita Deulkar’s voice in the song, but I will take the words of HFGK for it. To me the song sounds like being sung by a few child voices (unattributed) and chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the singing voices.

Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by GHulam Haider.

With this song, all the songs of “Shaheed”(1948) get covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish every Indian and Indian origin people a very happy 73th Independence day. I am quite certain that we are looking forward to a prosperuos and strong India in the days to come.

hullo to all in Atuldom

We have all heard “Gore gore, o baanke chhore, kabhi meri gali aaya karo, gori gori, o banke chhori, chaahe roz bulaaya karo”. Now that song from “Samadhi” was filmed on two actresses one of whom –Kuldeep Kaur- was dressed in male attire. That was in 1950. There have been numerous occasions where a lady does a stage song dressed as a man or vice versa. In such cases the man dressed as a lady sings in a female voice –as Amir Khan had done in a song in the 90s. And Kishore Kumar before him in “Dilli Ka Thug” (but that was a genre in itself) But always as a rule we seem to have females who are dressed as males sing in female voice as was the case in the song from “Naya Daur” “Reshmi salwar kurta jaali ka roop saha nahin jaaye nakhrewaali ka”; or the one from “Kismet” “Kajra Mohabbatwala akhiyon mein aisa dala”. We have had one instance (if my knowledge is right) where the male is dressed in both genders and sings in the voice of Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. I am talking of a Mehmood song (in league with the Kishore Kumar song in terms of artist’s caliber. ??). But today I discovered a song which has the actress dressed as both male and female singing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. Now this is a first encounter for me. I had seen this song ages ago, that is before my association with ASAD; which means that those days I used to listen and enjoy the songs without bothering about who sang who wrote or whose music! Etc. So, here is my heartfelt thank you to ASAD for making me aware of the songs I listen to ??

The song which I am talking of is from the 1953 romantic comedy “Ladki”. It had Vyjayantimala playing a tomboy, dancer (what else to expect from a movie with her in the cast), a sportswoman etc. She has Anjali Devi for a friend and Kishore Kumar as her male lead. There is Bharat Bhushan for Anjali Devi. This movie was made in Tamil as “Penn” and Telugu as “Sangam”. All three movies had Anjali Devi and Vyjayantimala as the constant factors with Gemini Ganeshan and N.T.Rama Rao (respectively) essaying the role played by Bharat Bhushan in Hindi. Similarly, in the south Indian versions, S. Balachander played the character that Kishore Kumar played in Hindi. The movie was directed by M.V.Raman and produced by AVM. Rajinder Kishan was the lyricist. The music director for this song was C Ramachandra.

We are having this song picturised on a seventeen year old Vyjayantimala on the occasion of her 79th birthday. Happy birthday to Vyjayantimala.

————
On August 2015, I had discovered a song “todke duniya ki deewar” which I had proposed to send to Atulji to celebrate the beautiful Vyjayanthimala’s birthday. The above post was written for that song. I don’t remember if I had sent it. And I am not going to search my outbox to see if I have sent or not. But before I sat to update the post when I checked ‘songs posted list’, I found that the song was posted in April 2018. But anyways my thoughts about that song remain unchanged.

I also saw that there are 15 songs in the movie out which 7 are posted that still means a few more possible Vyjayathimala dance songs are possible. As the saying goes- ‘a lot of water has flown down the river Ganges’ in the interim period. I missed an opportunity to see her live-performance in 2015 when my Peevesie said she could arrange passes, if I say-so, to a show in Bangalore where Vyjayanthimala was scheduled to perform. There are videos on YouTube that show her dance and grace even at 80 in some performance in Chennai. Hats off to the lady for her zeal and devotion to dance even at this age. May it continue in that manner for as long as she wishes.

Today’s song is a stage song sung by Lata Mangeshkar for a song written by Rajinder Krishan and composed by C. Ramchandra. We have our dear birthday girl occupying the stage as Kalidas, Tansen, a rishi who is writing the “vedas”, a Manipuri dancer, and the finale is Bharatnatyam (how could she miss out performing this). In fact the last three minutes of the song is devoted to her dance and it is a feast for the eyes, much like the last part of the “Jewel Thief” dance.

Happy Birthday to Vyjayanthimalaji.

Ed note-This song is followed seamlessly by a Tarana song which deserves to be treated as a separate song and it has been covered as such in the past.


Song-Mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai(Ladki)(1953) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
saare jahaan mein aisa koi ratan nahin hai
saare jahaan mein aisa koi ratan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai

iss desh jaisi ganga jamuna kahin na hogi
jamuna kahin na hogi
vedon se khubsoorat Rachna kahin na hogi
Rachna kahin na hogi
duniya mein aisi dharti aisa gagan nahin hai
duniya mein aisi dharti aisa gagan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai

yeh raam krishna Gautam
naano guru ki basti
naano guru ki basti
paida yahaan hui thi Gandhi ki nek hasti
Gandhi ki nek hasti
kisi aur desh ki toh aisi khabar nahin hai
kisi aur desh ki toh aisi khabar nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai

iss sarzameen pe aaye
gunwaan kaise kaise
gunwaan kaise kaise
kabhi kalidas jaise kabhi tansen jaise
kabhi tansen jaise
mujhe naaz hai watan par
jhoothhi lagan nahin hai
mujhe naaz hai watan par
jhoothi lagan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai

mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
mere watan se achcha koi watan nahin hai
