Missing Films of 1960s – 35
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Her name is listed as the fourth lady music director in Hindi cinema. But then, that is where the comparison ends. The first three names considered are Ishrat Sultana, better known as Bibbo, then Jaddan Bai, and then we have Khorshed Minocher-Homji, more popularly known as Saraswati Devi. These stalwart composers from the earlier decades (1930s and 40s) of Indian cinema, were formally trained in Hindustani classical music, which also defined their style and the types of songs they composed.

The other thing is the size of their work portfolio. Checking the Geet Kosh listings, one finds the following data. The name Ishrat Sultana appears for two films – ‘Adl e Jehangir’ from 1934 and ‘Qazzack Ki Ladki’ from (1937).  Then, the name of Jaddan Bai appears for 5 films in the 1930s. In case of Saraswati Devi, this number is 28 films, spread over 1930s and 40s. The actual number could probably be higher, since the Geet Kosh information is not complete for a number of films, especially for the first decade of talkie films. Nonetheless, we get a feel for the body of work of these two lady music directors.

The fourth name, and yes, I am talking about Usha Khanna – she is different from earlier three lady music directors identified above, in the following two respects. One, as per her own submissions, she has had no formal training in music, period. The closest she says she came to be taught music is her father, Manohar Lal Khanna, showing her the keys on a harmonium, for the basic notes of the sargam. Beyond that frugal basic introduction, Usha Khanna is a self taught music person, a fact that most certainly belies both the quality and the quantity of her musical creations. And the second – her longevity in the industry and the no. of films she has worked on. An active career that started in 1959, with the hit musical ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, and continued till at least 2003 with the film ‘Dil Pardesi Ho Gaya’. A musical journey that has lasted well over five decades, and in the process, she has worked for more than 250 films, in Hindi as well as some in other languages. These two factors make her stand apart in greater prominence, than her predecessor luminaries.

Greetings to Usha Khanna ji on her 76th birthday – 7th October, 2017.

And when we take a look at the years, another amazing aspect gets highlighted. Her first film is ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ in 1959. She was born in 1941. Goodness, she was all of eighteen years old when she accomplished her debut hit. That, my friends, is a remarkable showing indeed. Actually, she was introduced to Sashadhar Mukherji of Filmalya, by Indeevar ji. She was present for audition as a singer. On listening to her, S Mukherji ruled her out as a singer – no match for the voices of established artists like Lata ji and Asha ji. But when it was mentioned that she also composed music, it stirred the interest of Mukherji Sb. Not believing what he heard, he challenged her to create tunes for the mukhda lines suggested by him. He put her to this test again and again. After being satisfied with her introductory output, he assigned her as the music director for ‘Dil Deke Dekho’. The rest, my friends, is simply history.

With today’s post, I introduce to our blog, the film ‘Trip To Moon’ from 1967. The film is also known by the title ‘Chaand Par Chadaai’. The film is produced under the banner of Cauvery Productions, Madras and is directed by TP Sundaram. This is a Dara Singh film, notably produced in Madras. The cast of actors includes Dara Singh, Ratna, Bhagwan, Anwar Hussain, S Nazir, Helen, Padma, Kanchanmala and Rajrani etc. The music of this film is composed by Usha Khanna. Coming to the lyricists, the situation is quite interesting. Geet Kosh lists the song writers as SH Bihari, Asad Bhopali, Akhtar Romani and Javed Anwar, with an indication that there may be one more songwriter. Fortunately, this film is available. So when I checked the actual film, in the credits, three song writers are named, viz. SH Bihari, Asad Bhopali and a gentleman named Imam. There is this difference, which may be explained by noting that most listings in the Geet Kosh are based on the information booklets of the films. And yes, specific songwriter’s name for individual songs are not identified.

The song is a twin dance, which is being performed in some sort of a royal darbaar setting. The second dancer, who is lip syncing Kamal Barot’s voice, is a very young Padma Khanna (thanks Prakash ji, for the identification). I am not able to place a name to the first dancer. The dance seems to be a competition, as we can see some men who are possibly judges, as from their attire and appearance, and are holding paper and pencils in their hands. Watching this performance are Dara Singh and Bhagwan, seated in eminent seats, indicating they may be guests of honor. A lone person is sitting in some kind of a throne. He is wearing dark glasses, and I am not able to identify. I request friends and readers to help identify the first lady dancer and other actors visible in this clip.
[Ed Note: Nayan Yagnik ji has identified the gentleman wearing dark glasses as S Nazir. Prakash ji has identified the second dancer as Padma Khanna. Thanks to both.]

Greetings to Usha Khanna ji once again.

Enjoy this delightful twin dance song, that is one of the many keen memories from the radio listening days.

aap hain kya
aji wo aap hain kya

vallah har kaam bemisaal kar diya
aap hain kya
aji wo aap hain kya

kahiye janaab ye kya kiya
kyon dil se dil takra diya
hum ko bagair soche huye
kyon ae huzoor tadpa diya
ye addayen

jitne qaatil

lagne lagey dil pe teer ki tareh
aap hain kya
aji wo aap hain kya

aji wo aap hain kya
yun jhuki jhuki aankhon ne kamaal kar diya
hai chori chori dil ka bura haal kar diya

hum ek baar dekhen jidhar
lag jaaye aag pal mein udhar
zulfon ke jaal hain har taraf
jaayenge aap bach kar kidhar
humse itni berukhi kyon
dosti mein dushmani kyon
aisi na dijey hamen pyaar ki sazaa
aap hain kya
aji wo aap hain kya

hum bhi tumse kam nahin hain
donon hain ek hi haseen bemisaal
aap hain kya
aji wo aap hain kya

कहिए जनाब ये क्या किया
क्यों दिल से दिल टकरा दिया
हमको बगैर सोचे हुये

ज़ुल्फों के जाल हैं हर तरफ
जाएँगे आप बच कर किधर
हमसे इतनी बेरुखी क्यों
दोस्ती में दुशमनी क्यों
ऐसी ना दीजे हमें प्यार की सज़ा

khoobsurat haseen, koi tujh sa nahin
aate hain nazar aise chehre magar
kabhi kabhi
kahin kahin

Greetings to Asha Parekh ji, on completing 75 illustrious years, with all but 10 of them, in the film (and TV) industry.

The years have come and gone by, but the grace, the radiance, and smile is still the same. Having made her debut as a child star at the tender age of 10, it indeed has been a very fruitful and a prolific inning that she has played. The wires carried the news today in the day that her autobiography (co-authored with Khalid Mohammed) was released today. The title of the book is ‘The Hit Girl’. I am sure no explanation needs to be rendered for the title. Starting with ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ in 1959, there is a long list of hit films in which she has played the female lead role, all the way till the mid 1970s, when she moved into senior and supporting roles. The list of films reads like the ‘Best of 1960s/70s’. The list contains a ton of favorites. And I am sure all of us have a few on this list, that we will pick as our favorite films.

My love affair with Asha ji started with the song “O Mere Sona Re Sona Re Sona Re”. Film is ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966). Too much of a small pre-school/early school kid that I was, this is one of the earliest memories that I carry of having seen a film on big screen. Not yet trained in the discussions of the finer details of music and instruments, those were the days that the melody would fall into the ears and the mind would capture it instantaneously and store it in the neurons forever. The music of ‘Teesri Manzil’ had this first impact on my nascent mind. Soon the brainwaves would be crowded with thousands of songs that the mind soaked in from listening to the radio. But the music of ‘Teesri Manzil’ – let me ask you, what would you do with your first out-of-this-world music experience. An yes, right, you will store it forever, and play it often.

Watching the film, I had an additional impact. Most of the films memories and emotions have been built and retained from watching it again and again over the years. But that first viewing in the big and dark cinema hall, with the larger than life images thrown on to the huge white screen – the memory that is retained is of this young, very beautiful girl singing “O Mere Sona. . .”, and making an all out effort to pacify a gentleman named Shammi Kapoor, who seemed to be upset and angry.

The mind at that time was too unfamiliar with the grown up emotions, to appreciate that the two characters on screen are in the process of falling in love. All I know is that I took an intense fancy to this young lady singing on the screen. Her expressions, her vitality, her antics took my heart away, and in its place, left her own images, that I remember, I would ruminate (yes, sorry, I did not know these words at that time; I am articulating them now) and dwell upon for weeks and months. In short, if I knew then and understood the grown-up emotions, I would have happily declared that I was in love. The expressions in this song are so natural, so much in flow, so much coming from the bottom of a playful and naughty young heart, that I believed all I saw on the screen. And simply fell in love.

Being what I was, a pre school small child, I did not know what to do with that fancy. All I know is that I would think about her, and this song I witnessed in the cinema hall. I would think about her often; likely that it was more often than often. I just liked being with her thoughts, and being with her in thoughts. I would fancy that we would meet, that we would be together. I did not know then, what else to do with that fancy. Other than the thing that I quite enjoyed to be in her company in thoughts. The song and its associated images would continue to replay on the screen of the mind, all the time. Yes, that is what it felt like, being in love.

I remember it took some months for this fancy to wear off. The song, the antics, the images in the mind – all of that was intact, and still is. Just that, that unnamed craving to be with her in person, quite faded away, and settled down into a liking in the heart, that would say – she is my favorite. Maybe so – maybe it was another fancy that would steal my attention away (more about that later 😉 ). But I do know that the fancy strongly lasted well for many months.

As I was looking to replay this episode, and searching for a suitable song, I happened to chance upon this song, that was quite unfamiliar for me before I heard it with some attention earlier today. I remember that ‘Saajan’ (1969) was not one of those films that I had watched in its original run. With limited opportunities to watch new releases in the cinema hall, I had very little say in which movies to see. As i played this song today, the lines that immediately caught my attention, are the ones I have noted at the beginning of this article.

khoobsurat haseen, koi tujh sa nahin
aate hain nazar aise chehre magar
kabhi kabhi
kahin kahin

That there is none so beautiful
And so charming as you are
Faces, enchanting as much as yours
Are surely seen at times
But oh so rarely
And oh so scarcely

Oh so true, and so well in tune with that fancy of mine years ago. A face so charming as hers, a screen presence so appealing as hers, comes by quite rarely, quite once in a while.

An eminent celebration for this gorgeous milestone today, Asha ji. And I pray that there be many more such celebrations to come. May He endow good health and longevity upon you, and that you be khoobsurat haseen, forever.

Many many happy returns of today.

Today, 13th August is the birthday of Sridevi, as she turns 54.

For this celebration, here is a wonderful dance song performed by her, from the film ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’ (1984). The setting for the song is a stage performance, likely at a religious function. On stage, Sridevi is accompanied by Mithun Chaktravarty playing the flute and Beena signing the vocals. We also see Sudhir Dalvi, sitting next to Beena. In the audience we can see Yunus Parvez, sitting in the chair right up front, Sujeet Kumar and Kaanan Kaushal sitting  in the audience, Rakesh Roshan and Deven Verma, standing at the back, with Somayaajulu making an entry, while the program is in progress.

Have you ever wondered. . .

how a song gets constructed?

and why a song is termed as a tip of the iceberg?

You must now be thinking – this is a peculiar but a very interesting intro to the 134th century post on the blog. So yes, before getting into the discussion on the proposed topic, congratulations are in order. Welcome all to the 13 thousand 4 hundredth post on our blog. The musical bandwagon rolls on – toiling, pleasing, emotionally invigorating – it continues to move tirelessly. Because. . . because music – must be there. The world, this nature – all are moving to a rhythm, and a melody. Music is instilled in everything every entity we know, we touch, we think of. But come to think of it, we do not often think of this world that way i.e. music in everything, everyday of our lives. We are so consumed with the process of existence and living day to day, that we forget to stop and smell the flowers (or smell the coffee, if you are in America). And the music of life gets hidden behind the other sundries. Often we forget to think about it.

Today (30 june 2017) is the birth anniversary of Kalyanji (30 june 1928-24 august 2000 ) of the well-known Kalyanji-Anandji music composer duo. Or K-A, in short. I’ve written here on the occasion of the anniversary of several artistes. Composers, lyricists, actors, directors.  In fact most of my posts here are to do with some occasion or the other.

जब मैं छोटा बच्चा था, (and my, not just then. . . even now). . .

No, no I am not going to start a description of my ‘शरारती’ pranks and naughtiness. I am going to tell somethings about my favorite actor and songs; that my favorite male performer was Dev Anand. There was a charismatic attraction in his face, his smile with one out of line canine, his mannerism, and his style of dialogue delivery – all put together made for a striking package,  that would steal hearts. I am talking of the time when films like ‘Baazi’ and ‘Jaal’ and ‘Taxi Driver’ continued to be popular in re runs, and continued to be discussed as iconic films. This popular set of films was shown more than once on TV, and it would be a gala Saturday/Sunday when a Dev Anand film was scheduled. Those were days when the weekly film shows were split across the two last days of the week. And needless to say, the break was very irritating. 🙂
