Six songs from six different movies in a day ! So that was a normal day for the blog. Right ! Not really. This day ten years ago was a special day not only for me but for many millions others. It was a day when India vs Sri Lanka world cup cricket final was being played at Mumbai. Exactly ten years have passed. But the memories of that day and also memories of the days pereceding the final are still fresh in my mind.

The final post of the blog was posted at 12:31 PM and then I began to follow the final on TV, which was a day night match.

That tournament was emotionally quite a draining experience for me, and for millions of other cricket lovers as well.

The emotional toll on the Indian cricket lovers began not in 2011 but from the previous world cup of 2007. In that world cup, an overconfident and complacent Indian team lost to Bangladesh in their inaugural match. That loss saw them bow out of the world cup at the group stage itself. A most humiliating and inglorious world cup exit it was.

Heads rightly rolled after that.

A few months later, another world cup of a new kind called T20 world cup was organised. BCCI, smarting from the ODI world cup fiasco, did not want to participate, but ICC arm twisted them into participating in it. BCCI responded by sending a team shorn of stars. It was led by a freshly anointed captain in Dhoni. All big names (Tendulkar. Dravid, Ganguly, Kumble, Zaheer Khan) were missing from the team. Names like Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Joginder Sharma, R P Singh were included. This reluctantly sent team, against all odds, went on to lift the T20 world cup title ! And the erstwhile reluctant BCCI suddenly turned T20 enthusiast. They soon devised a T20 tournament called T20 and showed ECB how to market T20 and rake in unimaginable amount of money while at it.

Enthused by the success of India in 2007 T20 world cup, BCCI bid to host ODI world cup in India and neighbouring countries and succeeded in the bid. It was similar to BCCI bid in 1987, after their team’s unexpected win in the 1983 world cup.

2007 ODI World cup saw India (and also Pakistan) getting eliminated in the grouop stages itself. Indian elimination after just three matches meant that many Indian fans (who constitute the biggest cricket following group in the world) lost interest in the world cup after Indian elimination. Espn star sports, that had won the TV rights to telecast this world cup may have lost heavily due to this. So the format of 2011 was changed. Now there were two groups of 7 teams each. Top four finishers of each group qualified for the quarterfinals. This format (similar of the format of 1996 world cup) ensured that good teams would not get eliminated because of one bad day in the tournament. Each team would play six matches in group stage. A team could qualify even if they finished fourth in the group after losing two matches. So, teams like India and Pakistan would not get eliminated after one bad match. Similarly teams like Bangladesh and Ireland (that had one good day against India and Pakistan respectively), will not qualify after just one fluke win.

And that is exactly how it happened. India qualified by finishing second in the group whereas Pakistan qualified after topping their group. Bangladesh this time were soundly thrashed not only by India, but also by South Africa and West Indies. They did score one lucky win against England, but that solitary win failed to ensure their qualification.

Qualifying for the knockout was easy this time for India, but if they wanted to advance deep into the knockout stage then they needed to finish at the top. While India won against every other team, and they were very well placed against South Africa at 267/1, Indian batting collapsed inexplicably and they were bowled out for 296, losing 9 wickets for 29 runs and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. This result made them finish second in the group. Reward- they were pitted against defending champions Australia in the quarterfinals, who were world champions for three world cups in a row. Fortunately, Indians showed nerves to steel and went on to defeat Australia in the semi final. Their “reward”- a semi final meeting against Pakistan- a team that had no weak link in bowling. In this semi final, Indian batting struggled throughout. Tendulkar top scored with 85 after half a dozen reprieves through dropped catches, DRS review overturned an onfield out decision etc. Thanks to some valuable runs by Raina towards the end, India reached 260, their lowest total in the tournament. In the prevous match, India had chased 260 against Australia, and thewre was no reason why Pakistan could not do the same. Thankfully, Pakistan kept losing wixckets at crucial moments, just when it looked that they had things in control, and India sneaked through by 29 runs.

Final was against Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka were a side that had players eminently suited for this world cup conditions. They had some batsmen who could remorselessly pile on the runs and they had spinners who controlled the middle overs and choked runs. Sri Lanka had lost only one match, and that was against Pakistan, their nemesis team in world cups. Otherwise they were unbeaten. Their match against Australia was washed out. They defeated other opponents with ease. In the quarter final, they restricted England score and chased that with ease. They did the same against New Zealand in the semi final.

In the final, Sri Lanka won the toss and batted first. They piled on a big total of 274/6. Mahela Jaywardane, as was his wont, scored an unbeaten century.

When India began their chase, Sehwag was out for a second ball duck. India 0 for 1. Six overs later, Tendulkar too fell. India 31 for 2 and in deep trouble. Memories of world cup final 2003 chase began to haunt Indian fans, when India were 59 for three and were never in the game after that. With my experience, I had learnt the lesson that Tendulkar and Sehwag would perform in group matches, but not in the final. So both of them letting the side down in the big final was par for the course.

Fortunately, this team had Gautam Gambhir, who would perform in the final. He had performed in the World T20 Final in 2007 which India had won. Here too, he, in the company of rising star Virat Kohli began to repair the damage. The two took the score to 114, when Kohli fell. Target was 161 runs away, and India had to score at an asking rate of 5.7 for more than 28 overs. The Sri Lankan attack had not allowed any team other than Pakistan to score so many runs in this tournament. The next batsman scheduled to come in was Yuvraj. He had a great world cup with bat and ball, but he had fallen for a first ball duck in the semi final. And here, against Muralitharan, he would have been like a cat on the hot tin roof. As Kohli departed, fans were greeted by the sight of not Yuvraj, but Dhoni emerging out of the pavilion.

Gambhir and Dhoni saw off the threats of Muralitharan and co. The Sri Lankan modus operandi in this world cup was to harvest loads of wickets in the middle overs and cripple the opposition batting line up, which would then collapse to a total smaller than 230. Only Pakistan (batting first) had scored 277 against them. Sri Lanka had restricted England to 229 in the quarterfinal, New Zealand to 217 (in semi final) and 153 (in group match). Zimbabwe scored 188, Kenya 142, and Canada 122 against sri Lanka. So with the exception of Pakistan (batting first) no other team had succeeded in handling Sri Lankan bowling attack in the tournament.

Gambhir and Dhoni dented the Sri Lankan bowling attack. India were 223 when Gambhir had a momentary brain fade and he was out bowled for 97, when he was so close to a well deserved century. Only 41 runs were needed in 8.4 overs. Only seven more overs were needed to reach the winning total. Dhoni sealed the match with a well chronicled six.

That win now meant that India had won the ODI world cup in this century itself and we were no longer confined to reminisce and gloat about the title win in the past century. So someone like Ashish Nehra too joined the ranks of 1983 “pundit” like Madanlal as someone who is much in demand as TV cricket expert thanks to that world cup title victory in 1983. 🙂

Present generation cricket lovers can now honestly say that they were around when India won the ODI world cup. 🙂 People like us are of course luckier. We saw Indian world cup win in 1983 too. 🙂

On that day ten years ago, one song of “Pujaari”(1946) was covered in the blog. “Pujaari”(1946) was directed by Aspi for Ardeshir M Irani Productions, Bombay. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti, Masood, Bipin Gupta,Mustafa,P.D.Lal, Yashwant Dave, Anita Sharma, Tasneem, Baby Mumtaz Aka Madhubala etc in it. This movie had ten songs in it and four songs have been covered so far.

Today, exactly ten years later, here is another song from “Pujaari”(1946) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Feroz Dastoor. ali Sahab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This post appears late at night. At this time ten years ago, entire India had burst into wild celebrations just as Dhoni hit the winning six and then the team as performing a victory lap around the Wankhede stadium.

Blog Day :

28/12/2020 – Death anniversary of Pandit Husnlal (Husnlal-Bhagatram)

I have admitted in a post earlier that when I started my journey in the blog, that I could not recognize the name Husnlal-Bhagatram. I knew some of their songs well from radio days, but their MD’s name was conspicuously absent from the consciousness. Only explanation to this I can think of is that most of those known songs were Suraiyya songs and heard on AIR urdu service “aapki farmaish” programme. The reception of AIR’s (Urdu service) in Mumbai was so bad in 80’s that hardly anything said could have registered, unless one sits near the radio and concentrates on what is being said. Even then mostly it was difficult to comprehend, I can recall from memory. So, the name ‘Husnlal-Bhagatram’ was not known to me.

Husnlal was the younger brother of Bhagatram and also his junior in the field. As per Wikipedia, Pandit Husnlal was born in 1918 and died on 28/12/1968. Husnlal Bhagatram, alongwith their elder cousin Pandit Amarnath, are credited with training Shankar of Shankar-Jaikishan and Laxmikant of Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Khaiyyam and Mahendra Kapoor.

I had the link of this story telling song from the 1949 film ‘Jaltarang’ saved, for posting as Husnlal Bhagatram song, but their filmography in both imdb and Wikipedia is not listing this film, for some reason. I was just about to recheck from myswar.com to confirm that the music of this film is indeed by Husnlal Bhagatram, when I found this article on songsofyore.

On going through this useful article listing many of Husnlal Bhagatram’s better-known songs, I got the confirmation about “Jaltarang’ 1949. Also, from the comments and discussion it has transpired that the baton for melodious music shifted to Shankar Jaikishan from Husnlal Bhagatram, during the crossover of 40’s to 50’s decade. I am not surprised, as the interesting connection between these famous songs by these two composer duos is also evident:
Jiya bekaraar hai by Shankar Jaikishan
Tere nainon ne chori kiya mera chhota sa jiya by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The article has also remined me of this melodious Rafi-Lata duet.

Since making that comment about this being among the top 50 Rafi-Lata duets, in 2011, I have revisited the song a number of times and never tire of listening to it.

These five songs from Jaltarang 1949 are already posted in the blog:

Song Date posted
Lut gayi ummeedon ki duniyaa 1 March 2011
Nainon ke mast ishaare 24 June 2011
Haay taqdeer meri haay taqdeer meri 30 June 2011
Zara tumne dekha to pyaar aa gayaa 12 August 2011
Musaafir sada geet gaaye chalaa chal 1 September 2019

The remaining 4 songs are all Rafi solos, so we are in for a treat if all of them are available. If I am not mistaken, Husnlal Bhagatram can also be credited with starting the trend of having all male songs in the film by Rafi. Certainly, that was not the norm in 1949, but in this film ‘Jaltarang’ Rafi sahib is the only male singer. Certainly, in ‘Aansoo’1953 no other male singer is credited, while for the one song remaining to be posted, singers name is unavailable. “Shama Parwana” 1954 is having only Rafi sahib as male playback singer. Naushad Sahab did this only in Aan 1952 for the first time. This issue calls for some deep research.

The song I am presenting as a tribute for Pandit Husnlal, is a Rafi solo, written by by Kaif Irfani and composed by the ever-melodious Husnlal-Bhagatram. As per excel sheet this song is picturized on ‘Rehman’.

Rafi sahab has just completed 3100 songs in the blog. Kaif Irfani’s tally is at 75 (total written is not known). Husnlal Bhagatram is at 291 out of 451 total songs composed in 50 movies. At a guess the songs by Rafi, Lata and Suraiyya should cross the 100 figures under Husnlal Bhagatram. This gives a fair idea of the important part played by Husnlal Bhaagatram in the careers of these giants.


Song-Tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani hai ye badi suhaani (Jal Tarang)(1949) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani
tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani
hai ye badi suhaani
prem nagar mein aake utri
roop nagar ki raani
ho o roop nagar ki raani
mast adaayen nain katari
mast adaayen nain kataari
nikhri hui jawaani
aisa uska roop suhaana
duniya hui deewaani
ho o duniya hui deewaani

is nagri mein us shahzaadi ne kiya jab thhikaana
ik shahzaada dekh ke usko
ik shahzaada dekh ke usko
bahut hua deewaana
us par kiya nichhaavar usne
apna maal khazaana
dekho kismat baat ko kaise
karti hai afsaana
ho o karti hai afsaana
tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani
tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani
hai ye badi suhaani
prem nagar mein aake utri
roop nagar ki raani
ho o roop nagar ki raani

phir shahzaade ne uske
kadmon pe sheesh jhukaaya
usne apna pyaara jeewan
usne apna pyaara jeewan
usko bhent chhadaaya
shama ko dekh ke tab parwaana
jalne se ghabraaya
kya jaane ye pagli duniya
usey maza kya aaya
ho o usey maza kya aaya
tumhen sunnayen ek kahaani
tumhen sunanyen ek kahaani
hai ye badi suhaani
prem nagar mein aake utri
roop nagar ki raani
ho o roop nagar ki raani

Blog Day :

4505 Post No. : 16045

On our blog we have as many as eleven movies containing the word ‘Doctor’ in their titles.

Three of these eleven movies have already been YIPPEED. 😊

Here are the status of these movies in the blog:-

Movie Name Year Songs covered/status of the movie on the blog
Naqli Doctor 1933 1 of 14 songs posted
Dr Madhurika 1935 1 of 9 songs posted
Doctor 1941 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Dr Kumar 1944 1 of 8 songs posted
Lady Doctor 1944 1 of 10 songs posted
Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani 1946 3 of 7 songs posted
Dhobi Doctor 1954 2 of 7 songs posted
Dr Z 1959 3 of 8 songs posted
Dr Shaitaan 1960 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Dr Vidya 1962 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Doctor X 1972 1 of 6 songs posted

Today we are going to listen to a song from the movie ‘Doctor-Z’ of the year 1959.

I had come across a song of this movie sung by Rafi Saab long back (in 2014) when I was contributing lyrics on daily basis 😊 However this song missed out from being covered on the blog.

When I came across this song for the first time I was wondering if there was a movie with such title? But then, why not? we already have a ‘Doctor-X’. Then we have a ‘Dhobi Doctor’, a pure ‘Doctor’ and even a ‘Naqli Doctor’ 😊 (I mean in the list of movies) on the blog.

And one Doctor is ‘shaitaan’ too 😊 (wrong person in the ‘noble’ people’s company. 😊

The company of ‘Lady Doctor (s) -1944’ seems to be genuine with the support of Dr Madhurika, Dr Vidya and Dr Kumar. And I can see one ‘Doctor Ramesh-1949’ yet to join this company and need to check more in details. But I certainly remember ‘Ek Doctor Ki Maut-1990’ and that stirs my heart too.

I do not remember to have watched any of the above movies except ‘Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani’ which I watched on ‘Doordarshan’, If my memory serves me right.

As per information available in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) today’s movie ‘Doctor-Z’ had Shakeela, Mahipal, Heeralal, Helen, Vinod Diwani, Krishnakumari, Sundar, Mirza Musharraf, Dalpat, Tun Tun, Nasreen, Shetty, Bhudo Advani, Homi, Roosi, Bismillah, Baburao Pahalwan, Radheshyam, Rafiq, Hanuman, Balaram, Dhondu, M.K. Hasan, Karandikar, Sheetal Kumar and others.

This movie was directed by Jaal for ‘Baaliwala Films’ Bombay. Jaal was also the producer of this movie.

This movie had eights songs composed by Manohar and lyrics were penned by Akhtar Romani- fives songs and Jafar Rahi- one song. HFGK is silent on the lyricists for the remaining two songs.

08 Hello sweety seventeen, kaisi hai tabiyat Akhtar Romani 09.11.2011

Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Talat Mahmood, Uma Devi and Balbir had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.10.1959.

From the above table we can see that the first song of this movie was posted on 09.11.2011 and after that second song was posted almost a gap of seven years, but the third song from this movie was posted the next year. Today’s song is being posted after another year, so the last three songs from the movie have been covered at the rate of one song every year. 😊

Today’s song is written by Zafar Rahi and it is sung by Mohd Rafi. Music is composed by Manohar.

I have not yet listened to other songs of this movie but many seems to be already available and I am sure they must be interesting songs to listen and enjoy.

Let us now enjoy this soulful rendition by Rafi Saab and some great heart touching lyrics by Zafar Rahi …

bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
ashqon ki zubaani hain
kuchh aahon ki zubaani
ashqon ki zubaani hai

Song-Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani (Dr Z)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Zafar Rahi, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani

Kitni hi ummeedon se sajaai hai ye duniya
Main khush thha ke khud
Maine banaayi hai ye duniya
Lekin teri duniya ne jalaa di meri duniya
Yaad aate hain wo din to
Sulagtaa hai kalejaa
Thhamta nahin aahon ka dhuaan
Seene ke andar
Rukti nahin roke se
In ashqon ki rawaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani

Ujadi huyi basti ka nishaan tak nahin milta
wo aag lagaayi ke dhuaan tak nahin milta
Har geet khushi ka hai
Sisakti huyi fariyaad
Seene se lagaaye huye
Phirta hoon bas ek yaad
Honthon pe kuchh aahen hai
To aankhon me kuchh aansoo
Le de ke yahi reh gayi
ik saari nishaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani

Bhagwaan mujhe dekh ke main
Haq pe ladaa hoon
Sachchaai ka deepak liye
Aandhi mein khadaa hoon
Andhiyaaron se imaan ki
Baaten na chhupengi ee
Thhak jayegaa raahi
Kabhi raahen na thhakengi ee
Sach bol kahin dil tera
Patthhar to nahin hai ae ae ae
Chup chaap jo suntaa hain tu
Insaan ki kahaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zabaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
Ashqon ki zubaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani

आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ आ

भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी

कितनी ही उम्मीदों से सजाई है ये दुनिया
मैं खुश था के खुद
मैंने बनायीं है ये दुनिया
लेकिन तेरी दुनिया ने जला दी मेरी दुनिया
याद आते है वो दिन तो
सुलगता हा कलेजा
थमता नहीं आहों का धुंआ
सीने के अन्दर
रूकती नहीं रोके से
इन अश्कों की रवानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी

उजड़ी हुयी बस्ती का निशाँ तक नहीं मिलता
ओ आग लगाई के धुंआ तक नहीं मिलता
हर गीत ख़ुशी का है
सिसकती हुयी फ़रियाद
सीने से लगाए हुए
फिरता हूँ बस एक याद
होंठों पे कुछ आहें है
तो आँखों में कुछ आँसू
ले दे के यही रह गयी
इक सारी निशानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी

भगवान् मुझे देख के मैं
हक पे लड़ा हूँ
सच्चाई का दीपक लिए
आंधी में खडा हूँ
अंधियारों से ईमान की
बातें न छुपेंगी ई
थक जाएगा राही
कभी राहे न थकेंगी ई
सच बोल कहीं दिल तेरा
पत्थर तो नहीं है ए ए ए
चुप चाप जो सुनता हैं तू
इंसान की कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी

“Maa Baap” (1944) was directed by V M Vyas for Sunrise Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had had Nazir Khan, Veena, Rajkumari Shukla, Yakub, Dixit, Majid, Jagdish, Mirza Musharraf, Khursheed Ahmad, Amirbai Karnataki, Motibai, Kalyani etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Seven of these songs have been discussed in the past.

While discussing the seventh song from the movie four years ago (on 18 december 2016), I had mentioned that

After this song, two more songs from this movie are left to be discussed, viz. “ho kaahe beech bajariya soyi”- sung by Kalyani and Lalit Parulkar and “main aa rahi hoon gaati huyi”-singers unknown. These two songs do not seem to be available. so unless they become available, this movie “Maa Baap”(1944) will have only seven songs (out of nine) in the blog.

A few days ago, I managed to discover the song “ho kaahe beech bajariya soyi” on YT. So that is a significant progress in our bid to cover all songs from this movie.

Here is the eighth song from this movie. This song is sung by Kalyani and Lalita Parulkar. Roopbani is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Qureshi.

Only the audio of this song is available and so it is difficult to say how and on whom this song was picturised. It sounds like a conversations between two individuals. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

After this song, just one song is left from this movie namely- “main aa rahi hoon gaati huyi”-singers unknown. This one song does not seem to be available. Let us see if that song too will surface in future like the song under discussion or we will have to be satisfied with a YC (conditional YIPPEE) for this movie.

I have not been able to get several words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections wherever applicable.

Today’s song is a special song from the film Mirza Sahibaan-1957. It is special because it is almost a 9 minute song – 8 minutes and 36 seconds, to be exact. There is one more-Punjabi- song in this film, which is about 6m 30s long. Today’s song is written by Verma Malik and the music is composed by Sardul kwatra- one of the 3 Sikh composers in Hindi films during that period ( the other two were G S Kohli and S Mohinder). His younger brother Bhagwant Kwatra was his assistant here.

Sardul Singh Kwatra was one of the very few Sikh Music Directors Hindi Films had. He was born in Lahore in 1928. He was educated and trained in classical music at Lahore. His teacher in music was Sardar Awatar Singh, who was quite famous in Lahore. Later Sardul singh joined Hansraj Behl as his assistant.

After Partition, his family first shifted to Amritsar and then to Bombay. The family established a film production company and started making films. Their first film was ‘Ek Teri Nishani”-49. Sardul singh was its MD, along with Pt. Amarnath and Vinod. Later he composed for ‘Jalte Deep”-50, with T.K.Das. His first independent film was “Man ka Meet”-50.
His family company wanted to make a Punjabi film “Posti”-50. Sardul got newcomer Shyama to be the Heroine. Shyama also acted in their second film “Kode Shah’-53. Their next Hindi film was ‘Goonj’-52, for which Sardul convinced Suriya to be its Heroine. He was its MD of course.

Sardul singh was a tall,well built and handsome person. Unfortunately his severe inclination towards beautiful women overpowered his talents. He used to proudly say, ‘I can not create good music without beautiful faces. ” He was aware of his looks and used it unabashedly to influence women.

When he was in Bombay, he requested Mohd. Rafi ( after this film) to let out the top floor flat in Rafi’s bungalow to him , since it was empty. Being a good and helpful man, Rafi agreed. When Rafi’s son’s marriage was fixed, he wanted his flat back, but Sardul kwatra refused to vacate. Those days, the Bombay Rent control act was in favour of the tenants, so Rafi had a lot of problems. After a few years, Sardul filed a criminal case also against Rafi, in this connection. Rafi suffered a lot because of this. Finally, while going to Chandigarh before shifting to the USA, Sardul Kwatra vacated the flat. This detailed story is described in ” aap ki parchhaiyan” a book by Rajnikumar Pandya ji.

He gave music to 22 Hindi and 13 Punjabi films. In 1970, he visited Chandigarh and established ‘Chandigarh Film Institute”. He left his wife and children and went to the USA with another good looking woman, in 1978. He got 2 children from this association. Sardul singh Kwatra died in the US on 6-7-2004.

India is a unique country in the world. ” Vividhata mein ekta” (विविधता में एकता ). A country which has 28 states and 9 UTs, 22 languages mentioned in its Constitution, 30 languages spoken by 30 lakh people each, 122 languages spoken by more than 10000 people each and 1652 languages spoken in all the country. So many religions are living amicably since thousands of years and still the country is ONE unit, when the Nation needs it. Disproving all the Pundits of the world saying that India will break into pieces after independence, we are stronger and more developed by the day. So, what is the secret ?

The secret is its Culture, which keeps all faiths and languages bound together. In India, Culture is greater than and a bigger influence than individual religions. The flexibility, adaptability and readiness to make changes by the majority section, is the secret. This makes India the biggest Democracy in the world today. The entire world looks up to us as a final Saviour.

Culture and Folklore have bound Indians together. In every state there are its own Folk tales, Folk Dances and Folk Music. Still, some common Folklore is all over the country. Though every region has its own Folklores, Lovers’ Folk lore from Punjab and Sind have been traditionally well known throughout India, e.g. Heer-Ranjha or Sohni-Mahiwal etc etc. Our films have a great contribution in keeping the country United and Together,despite calamities and aggressions. Some of the Folk tales of Love from Punjab and Sindh became well known due to films made on them.

There are 9 Tragic Love stories from Punjab and Sindh,in which both the lovers die without getting united. These 9 Love stories are-
Mirza-Sahiban
Heer – Ranjha
Sassi-Punnu
Momal-Rano
Umar-marvi
Sohni-Mahiwal
Lila-Chanesar
Noorie-Tamchi
Dhaj-Rorkumar (Unlike most pairs,in Mirza Sahiban,the Male name comes First !)
Indian film producers have helped spread these Immortal Love stories by making movies on them,as under-
Heer-Ranjha… Films made in 1931,32,48 and 1970
Mirza-Sahiban… In 1933,35,47 and 1957
Sassi-Punnu… In 1932,33 and 1946
Sohni-Mahiwal…In 1933,46,58 and 1984
Umar-Marvi…in 1942
Noorie-Tamchi…In 1934
Today’s film was directed by Ravi Kapoor, who directed 3 more films-Kala Chor-56,Chalta Purja-58 and Accident-65. The cast of the film was Shyama, Shammi Kapoor, Ram Singh, Madan Puri,Uma Dutt, Indira, Nazir kashmiri, Tun Tun, Daljit and many others.

Indira. This is a ‘Same Name Confusion’ artiste. During the silent Era and early Talkie period, there was one Indira Devi. Her real name was Effie Hippolet- an Anglo-Indian She acted in 24 silent films since 1927, but did only two Talike films-Al-Hilal-35 and Wamaq Azra-1935. Then there is the comedian fatty Indira Bansal who was operative from 1951 to 1981, and worked in 116 films. This Indira was different.

Indira, one of Punjabi cinema’s most popular leading ladies of the 1960s, was born on August 6, 1938 in northern India. Growing up in an aristocratic family in the Punjab village of Kharian, her family lost everything when they had to flee their home during partition to settle in Kanpur. In 1952 her family shifted to Bombay where an Elder brother ran a successful business.

Indira was noticed by the popular comedien Bhagwan while he was shooting a movie at Jagriti Studios, and she was put in the cast of his film Rangeela (1953). Raj Kapoor, who happened to be visiting the set of Rangeela, noticed Indira and later cast her as the daughter of a rich industrialist in his film Shree 420 (1955).

Indira continued to appear in supporting roles in major Hindi productions like Funtoosh (1956), Mirza Sahibaan-1957, Yahudi (1958), and Dil Deke Dekho(1959). She had just appeared as the lead in the low budget yarn Jungle Ki Duniya (1959) when she was cast as the heroine in a Punjabi film titled Yamla Jatt in 1960. This was followed that same year by two more Punjabi pictures, Do Lacchian and Kiklee. All three films were very successful.

Returning to Hindi language movies, she found herself much in demand for B-films with colorful titles like Maya Mahal (1963), Jungle Boy (1963), Tarzan Aur Jadugar (1963), Pahadi Nagin (1964), Arab Ka Lal (1964), Son of Zimbo (1966), Sheba and Hercules (1967), Tarzan in Fairyland (1968) and CID Agent 302 (1968), sometimes playing the heroine, but more often than not as a vamp or villain. Occasionally she would snag a nice supporting role in a major production like Do Dil (1965) or Mere Huzoor (1968), and she still continued to star in Punjabi fare.

Sometimes billed as Indira Billi (her real name was Indira Kaur) she was interviewed in 1963 for Picture Post magazine where she talked about her beginnings: “I had not the good fortune of stepping into films and finding myself a heroine right from the start as had been the case with many glamour girls these days. It was a life of toil and tears, fighting every inch, every day, and month after month. Sometimes I was fed up, felt tired of the ceaseless struggle to make my presence felt. With the struggle for existence keen and with not enough money, those early days were none too happy for a girl aspiring for a respectable place in the film world, let alone stardom. Sometimes I had my misgivings whether I was right in coming into films. Some kind of inferiority complex took hold of me and I thought several times that I would never become a star.” Indira married cinema owner Shiv Kumar in the early to mid-1960s and left the film scene in the early 1970s.

The story of the film Mirza Sahibaan-57 was….

Sahiba’s father (Uma Dutt) is Mirza’s mother’s brother (making them cousins). She brings Mirza for an extended visit to her family home, a visit cut short when Sahiba’s mother (Gulab) throws a fit over her young daughter’s budding relationship with Mirza, who for some reason is not considered worthy of her. Mirza adamantly refuses to leave his Sahiba when his insulted mother packs up her bags and goes.

Her sad-sack hen-pecked brother promises to take good care of Mirza, although how someone so lacking a spine can possibly protect a kid who is clearly not wanted is beyond me. Anyway, Sahiba and Mirza become inseparable and grow into young adults (Shyama and Shammi Kapoor) who adore each other. The little cocoon of love that surrounds them is constantly under attack by Sahiba’s brothers Mir (Ram Singh) and Shamir (Madan Puri) in addition to her mother, but the pair remains steadfast (although they spend a lot of time talking about their willingness to die for one another, never a good omen).

In addition to Sahiba, Mirza has a passion for his white mare and his bow and arrows and is a crack shot. This endears him no further to his nasty cousins, and his love for Sahiba is also a thorn in the side for the local barber and matchmaker Umara (?) who stands to lose a commission if the young lovers marry each other. When Sahiba persuades Mirza to take her to a local fair, Umara takes the opportunity to create trouble.

Umara informs Mir and Shamir that Sahiba is at the fair with Mirza. Infuriated, they track him down and beat him mercilessly, although not as mercilessly as Sahiba’s mother when they all reach home. She throws Mirza out of the house and locks Sahiba in her room. Sahiba’s father quickly accedes to his wife’s wishes that he get Sahiba married into the wealthy Choudhary family (who happen to be her relatives) nearby, and Umara is called in.

Sahiba, unable to escape her mother’s eagle eye, asks her friend Mora to take a message to Mirza, who is now homeless and despondently considering suicide.

Mora saves him from jumping off a cliff, and he goes to stay with their aunt, Bibo.

Umara the matchmaker now becomes very busy, going first to fix Sahiba’s marriage with the son of Choudhary Sahab (Nazir Kashmiri), and then to Mirza’s parents’ house, where he tells them how mistreated Mirza has been. Mirza’s mother asks him to plead with Mirza to return home—which he doesn’t have to do because Bibo is already suggesting it to Mirza. She relents though in the face of Mirza’s devotion.

He agrees to return to his parental home if Bibo will bring Sahiba to him to say goodbye, which she does. He promises to return for Sahiba, and she says that she will send word when her wedding date is fixed so that he can save her. I am not clear how this will work out better than if they just leave right now, but it’s not my plot. Sahiba’s wedding is eventually fixed for the same day as Mirza’s sister Chatti’s, and Bibo sends a message to Mirza.

Mirza receives the message, and races away on his trusty white mare to rescue Sahiba from her wedding. He runs away with her.

The end- The opposite party follows Mirza and Sahiba and kills Mirza. Sahiba commits suicide and both die in each other’s arms.

“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

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.


Song-Main haseena naazneena (Baazi)(1968) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Lata, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

ek raaja ki sauteli raani thhi
mahal ke andar
jo kahti thhi
main hoon jag mein sabse zyaada sundar

ae mere sheeshe
kaun hai jag mein sabse zyaada sundar

Raaj kumaari
raajkumaari
teri beti
isi mahal ke andar

hahahahaha
hahahahaha

hain
ladki
chim chika chim chika chim chika chim

jaane kaun hai ye ladki
chim chika chim chika chim chika chim
soorat ki bhi hai achchi
chim chika chim chika chim chika chee
na ghabra tu ae ladki
ham hain tere saathhi
is ghar mein tu khushi se jee

ae mere sheeshe
ab bata
kaun hai jug mein sabse zyaada sundar

Rajkumaari
teri beti
rahti hai jo ab door kutiyon ke andar

seb le lo
meethhe meethhe seb le lo

kirkiti kirkiti kirkiti kir
kirkiti kirkiti kirkiti kir
kirkiti kirkiti kirkiti kir
kirkiti kirkiti kirkiti kir

ab bata ae sheeshe
kaun hai sundar

teri beti rajkumari
ab hai rajkumar ke saath

main haseena nazneena
main haseena nazneena
koi mujhsa nahin een een
koi mujhsa nahin nahin naheen
main sameena mahajabeena
main sameena mahajabeena
mujhmein kya kya nahin een een
mujhmein kya kya nahin nahin ee

main qayaamat ki pehchaan hoon
ek bijli aur toofaan hoon
main mohabbat hoon
imaan hoon
ik aashiq ka armaan hoon
jo mere paas aaye
sukoon e dil paaye
phir jaaye na wo kahin
kahin een

main haseena naazneena
koi mujhsa nahin een een
koi mujhsa nahin nahin een

main hansoon to chaman bhi khiley pyaar ki zindagi bhi miley
main jaloon to patanga jaley
maut mere kahe par chaley
nigaahon se main kheloon
arre jisko bhi main dekhoon
wo jaan de de wahin
wahin een
main sameena mahajabeena
mujhmein kya kya nahin een een
mujhme kya kya nahin
nahin een een

pyaar ki main hoon ik daastaan
mere dam se hai duniya jawaan
main nahin to bahaaren kahaan
mere bas mein hai saara jahaan

main hoon shola
main hoon shabnam
main hoon naghma
main hoon sargam
aa aa aa
jhuke hain mere aage
ye chaand aur sitaare
ye aasmaan aur zameen zameen een

o main haseena
main sameena
koi mujhsa nahin een
mujhmein kya kya nahin
nahin een

o main haseena
main sameena
koi mujhsa nahin een
mujhmein kya kya nahin
nahin een
