Today’s song is from the film Gokul ka Chor-1959. My last post was from film Gokul ka Raja-54. Its now time to get out of Gokul Town – after this post. Not that there are no more films on Gokul. There are still 2 more films with same title ” Gokul”, one of 1946 and the other of 1985. I always wondered why there were no films on Mathura or Vrindavan… two more places closely connected to Krishna. As far as Dwarka is concerned, there is a sole film ” Dwarkadheesh”, made in 1956.

During my school days, we boys always used to have 2 groups, one each who like Ram and Krishna. In our school annual functions,in the debating contest, boys from each group vehemently and enthusiastically spoke about their Group God – Ram or Krishna. From the young age itself, personally, I always adored Krishna. In my opinion, Krishna is more relevant in Kaliyug.

There were 4 Yugs
1. Satyug – 17,28,000 years
2. Tretayug – 12,96,000 years
3. Dwaparyug – 8,64,000 years
4. Kaliyug – 4,32,000 years

Shri Ram was the 7th incarnation (Avtar) of Lord Vishnu and he was born in the middle of Tretayug.
Krishna was the 8th Avatar and was born in the end part of the Dwaparyug.
The 4th yug is Kaliyug in which we are living.

Shri Ram ruled for 11000 years. He existed 1.75 million years ago.

Shri Krishna ruled for 125 years and died just one month before Dwaparyug ended and Kaliyug started. That is only 5122 years BCE, before Today. So mathematically also Krishna was closer to Kaliyug of today.

Shri Ram presented an ideal to follow Raj-Dharma, and all rules, regulations, Laws and Social Norms, irrespective of the sufferings. During his times, Praja used to follow the King. That is why there was a Ram Rajya, where ultimately the Evil paid for its misdeeds.

In Shri Krishna’s times, the world had changed and Krishna taught us how to live in today’s Yug, by Tit for Tat, not tolerating injustice, being street smart, using Chanakya type Neetis to achieve Goals. He provided lessons through his own behaviour, how to survive and be successful with Tact and Intelligence, how Karma is more important than Dharma, when it come to destroying the Evil. The whole Bhagwadgeeta is full of worldly advise.
That is why I feel Krishna is more relevant in today’s times. Ram is respected, Krishna is loved.

So much for the Ram and Krishna philosophies. Anyway, To Each His Own. I only expressed my views.
Interestingly, at a cursory count, I find that out of films on Ram (Ramayan and related) and Krishna (Mahabharat and related), 70% films are on Krishna and 30% films are on Ram. Even the film makers seem to consider Krishna as a better entertainer !

Now, coming to today’s film Gokul ka chor-59, it was made by Roopvani films for producer Sharad Pai. He was the son of Baburao Pai, one of the leading Film Distributors of yore and a partner of Prabhat Films. He joined after Keshavrao Dhaiber had to leave Prabhat, because he married the company Heroine Nalini Tarkhad, breaking the directorial agreement rule. For the same reason, V.Shantaram had also to leave Prabhat when he married Jayashree kamulkar, another Prabhat Heroine. But , funnily, S.Fattelal escaped this rule, because he had married Gulab aka Kamlabai, Prabhat Heroine of the Silent Era, before this rule was formulated ! (This Gulab aka Kamlabai is in the Prabhat Logo)

This film was directed by Vasant Painter and the music was by Sudhir Phadke. Information in details about Sudhir Phadke is already given by Sudhir ji, few years back and by me recently, so I will not repeat it.

However, Vasant Painter is a name not known to many Hindi film watchers.

Vasant Anandrao Painter was born in a village near Kolhapur on 13-8- 1913. His father Anandrao, along with cousin Baburao Painter wanted to make films. Anandrao had bought a second hand Projector, which he turned into a Camera and shot a short film also. Unfortunately, Anandrao Mistry aka Anandrao Painter died suddenly in 1916 and Baburao Painter went on to become the famous founder of Marathi films in the Silent Era.

By the time Vasant became 20 year old,the Silent film era was in full swing and many films were made in Kolhapur,Poona and Bombay.He had a liking for painting,so he picked up poster painting work,first in Maharashtra Film company and later in Prabhat film company when it was started in Kolhapur. He did all jobs,including assisting in cinematography and direction.

His first break came when he was 33 year old. He got an opportunity to direct Prabhat’s film ” Gokul”-46 and later on “Seedha Raasta”-47. After V.Shantaram had left Prabhat to start his own Rajkamal, Vasant Painter remained in Prabhat loyally, so he got the reward. Actress Kamala Kotnis had floated a production company,Kamala Chitra Ltd. She invited Painter to direct her film,’Sati Ahilya’-49. Snehal Bhatkar was the MD. Painter directed ‘ Bhishma Pratignya ‘-1950. This was,probably,the only Mythological film Nargis had acted in, with Shahu Modak. His other films were,Murliwala-51, Devyani-52, Sajni-56, Patit paawan-55, Gokul ka chor-59, Pyar ki jeet-62 and Dagaa-77. Meanwhile he was producing and directing several Marathi films too. He had won 9 awards,including the prestigious ” V.Shantaram Award”.

Vasant Painter died on 31-5-2006, leaving behind him 6 daughters and 1 son.

The cast of the film consisted of Kumkum. Romi, Manorama, Mohan Choti (real name Mohan Gorakshkar from Amaravati, Maharashtra) Ratnamala, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Madhav Kale, Madhu Apte, Polson etc.etc.

In any star cast of any film, after the names of main and known actors, there will be a line of names of actors who are not familiar and they can not be identified in the film, except by a few handful such experts. Information on these actors is neither collected nor compiled, leave alone their Bios being available. They are just names in the list. One such name in this list is Madhav Kale.

Madhav Kale was born in Nashik in 1903. After his school education at Nashik, he joined Deccan college at Poona and passed Intermediate course. He was interested in playing in dramas, which was opposed by his mother. But he used to take part in dramas while in college. He was a good singer too. Wanting to join films, he sent applications to many companies. Saroj and sharda companies responded. He acted in several silent films like Mukti sangram, Kanak kesari etc. He entered the Talkie films with Vikram Charitra-32, Mera Imaan-34 and Vishnu Bhakti-34. During this period, he got married in 1934.

He acted in 21 films. His last film was Gokul ka chor-59 (today’s film). He even directed one film, Sacha Sapna-42. He sang 13 songs in 7 films till 1942.

There is no information about him after this.

Another name in the cast is of Madhu Apte. His full name was Madhukar Shankar Apte. He was a Marathi stage and film actor predominantly, who successfully used his handicap of stammering to advantage, in delivering dialogues and creating humour by mistiming the dialogues. He was born on 1-3-1919 at Poona and died on 25-2-1993 at Poona.

Today’s song is sung by Sudha Malhotra and chorus. This is perhaps the first time I am presenting a song of Sudha Malhotra. Whenever her name comes up I remember her popular bhajan, ” Darshan do Ghanshyam nath more, aankhiyan pyaasi re”. I also remember that she is one of those few cine artistes, who try to hide that their debut in the films is through a non-descript film and who insists that a leading Music Director was responsible to launch her in films.

Sudha Malhotra first sang few songs in film “The Last message ( Aakhri paigham)”-1949, under MDs Abid Hussain Khan and Sushant Bannerji. However, in every interview, she has insisted that she debuted in film Arzoo-50 under Anil Biswas. The facts are available in HFGK for anyone to see.

“Bansari Bala”(1957) was produced by Moghabhai Desai and directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Desai Productions, Bombay. This movie had Chitra, Daljeet, Maruti, Niranjan Sharma, Krishna Kumari, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Mishra, Kamal, Meenu Mumtaz, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Susheel Kumar, Nadir Mota, Razia, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Jugnu, Shashimala, Savitri, Jagdish Kamal, Heera Sawant, Sheela Waaz, Suresh Nigam, Master Rajesh, Al Nasir etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Bansari Bala”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Sudha Malhotra and chorus. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kamal Mitra.

It is a very long song, more than 8 minutes long.

The video of the song shows that it is a dance song. I am unable to identify the actors seen in the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the main dancer (lip syncing in Sudha Malhotra’s voice) as well as others.

tum samay ki ret par chhodte chalo nishaan
dekhti tumhen zameen
dekhta hai aasmaan

These uplifiting lines are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak. The poetry composed sometimes in the early 1950s, was presented as a song in the 1953 film ‘Naya Raasta’. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is a song writer who has been confined to mythological and religious fare for most of his career. Active in the Hindi cinema since 1943, his songs can be heard in films all the way to the end of 1970s.

Remembering Saraswati Kumar Deepak today (8th July) on the anniversary of his passing away. And incidentally, yesterday (7th July) was his birth anniversary also.

He was born on 7th July 1918, at Navsthala Hasanpur in district Bulanshehar in Uttar Pradesh. His original name was Ram Gopal Sharma. Not much information is available about his early years. His education was in Hindi and Sanskrit. He did his BA from Meerut College. As a young man, he had begun writing poetry and prose.

In early forties he came to Bombay, and in 1942 he joined the production house of Fazli Brothers. His first assignment was as the writer of advertisements and promotional material in Hindi, for the films produced by Fazli Brothers. His first song appeared in the film ‘Zabaan’ of 1943 – “Dheere Se Kadam Badhaata Chal, Bigdi Taqdeer Banaata Chal”, which was composed by C Ramchandra and sung by Ishwarlal and Kaushalya. His next song – “Soti Hun Ab Chanda Mujhe Jagaa Dena”, appeared 1944, in the film ‘Badi Baat’. The song was rendered by Amirbai under the direction of Feroze Nizami. This song became very popular in its time, and the name of its writer started getting known somewhat in the industry.

In 1945, his songs appeared in ‘Piya Milan’ and ’Swarn Bhoomi’. However, 1946 became a defining year for him. Four films were released that carried songs written by him – ‘Bhakt Prahlad’, ‘Dev Kanya’, ‘Maansarovar’ and ‘Uttra Abhimanyu’. As the names of these films suggest, yes, they had an effect to have Saraswati Kumar typecast as a writer for religious and mythological films. This categorization he was never able to shake off for the rest of his career.

That is not to say that he did not write other type of songs for other genres of films. The songs “Kahin Ka Deepak Kahin Ki Baati” (‘Aag’, 1948), “Raat Gayi Phir Din Aata Hai” (‘Boot Polish’, 1953, and “Nigaahon Se Dil Mein Chale Aayiega” (‘Hameer Hath’, 1964) are a sampler that represents that wide portfolio of genres he could handle. He has written close to 350 songs for about 100 Hindi films. Besides that, he translated and dubbed the songs and the dialogues for about 25 regional language films.

Saraswati Kumar was not just a song writer. He was also a screenplay writer, a dubbing specialist and a renowned author of literature for children. Books like ‘Haathi Ghoda Paalki’ and ‘Jai Janani, Jai Bharati’ became quite popular and famous. He used to write a lot for All India Radio – plays, songs, sponsored programs etc. for two years, he anchored the program ‘Apni Kahaani, Apni Zubaani’ – sponsored by Bank of Baroda. And above all, as a journalist, he continuously contributed stories and articles for newspapers and magazines.

He passed away in 1986, just after completing his 68 year.

The film ‘Bansari Bala’ is produced by Moghabhai Deasi under the banner of Desai Productions, Bombay, and is directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of actors listed for this film is Chitra, Daljeet, Maruti, Niranjan Sharma, Krishna Kumari, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Mishra, Kamal, Meenu Mumtaz, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Susheel Kumar, Nadir Mota, Razia, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Jugnu, Shashimala, Savitri, Jagdish Kamal, Heera Sawant, Sheela Waaz, Suresh Nigam, Master Rajesh, and Al Nasir.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Six songs are written by Pandit Faani and the remaining three are by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. Music direction is by Kamal Mitra. All the three songs which are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak have been sung by Sudha Malhotra. One of these three is already showcased here on our blog – “Main To Chanda Ki Nagri Se Aayi Re”.

 Today’s lilting song is in the sweet singing voice is of Sudha Malhotra. Words are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak, and the signature melody is by Chitragupt. On screen, the song is performed by Chitra, who tells about her heart after someone came to her dreams and cast a captivating spell on her. The song is filmed in a garden. And we can see the subject of her aspirations (Daljeet) also present there, although she is not aware as she continues with the song.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by Nitin Shah.

Listen and enjoy.

Blog Day : 3859 Post No. : 14873

Greetings all – Basant is here. Today is the celebration of Basant Panchmi.

Of all the wonderful songs that have been created in Hindi films, for celebrating this King of Seasons, I would prefer to place this song today to be amongst the top five. Such a beautiful creation this is.

I myself had not heard of this song, till about five days ago. A friend in our circle enquired whether I had this song. He has been searching for it for some time now. Not being aware of it first hand, I said I will check. And when I located it in my collection, and then heard it for the first time, I am simply bowled over by the soft beauty and the delicious attractiveness of this song. The words, the music and the rendition have all come together in a conspiracy to steal your heart away.

The words are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. Ah, the enchantment of the lyrics that say – “चलो तारों के गजरे बना लो सखी” – come, lets make a garland from the stars. The wonderful music is from the mind of Ajit Merchant. The soft and beautiful melody – it makes such a delightful use of chorus lines interspersed with the primary singing voice. And this exquisite rendition is in the voice of Sudha Malhotra. She has rendered some of the loveliest songs in Hindi films. And this one stands right up there with her best – sung ever so sweetly.

The film is ‘Ram Bhakt Vibhishan’ from 1958 – one of the more obscure and unfamiliar productions, whose claim to fame might well just be the lovely music – like this song. The production banner is Rajni Chitr, Bombay. The film is produced by SJ Rajdev and directed by Samar Chatterji. The star cast of this film is listed as Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Prem Adeeb, Krishna Kumari, Shanta Apte, Babu, Kamal, Surendra Kumar, Neema, Sarita, and Bipin Gupta. A total of nine songs are listed for this film. This is the third song for this film to appear here on our blog.

Listen to this lovely creation, and marvel – at the gems that still need to be discovered.

Today 24th December 2018 is the ninety-fourth (24 December 1924 – 31 July 1980) birth anniversary of the ‘divine voice’ Mohammad Rafi Saab.
And today 24th December also happens to be the birth anniversary actor Mahipal (24 December 1919 – 15 May 2005).
I have very deep respect and great admiration for both of them in my heart and it will be until we are associated with Hindi Films and Hindi Film Music.

It was in 2017 that I came to know about the birth anniversary of Mahipal ji and its falling on 24th December (because of this article on BHD by our own Shishir ji) – the same date – we have birth anniversary of Rafi Saab. So, last year I presented a song from the movie ‘Maharaja Vikram-1966’ here.

This year too I wish to present a song and thus was looking a song sung by Rafi Saab and lip synced by Mahipal. I think most of the songs may be have already been covered and I was able to find a ‘duet’ sung by Rafi Saab and Sudha Malhotra and lip synced on screen by Mahipal and Anita Guha.

This song is from the 1957 movie ‘Pawanputra Hanuman’.

It was directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Basant Pictures’. It was presented by Homi Wadia for ‘Wadia Brothers Productions’.

It had S.N. Tripathi, Mahipal, Anita Guha, B.M. Vyas, Krishna Kumari, Ratnamala, Heera Sawant, Indira Bansal, Korega, Amirbai Karnataki, Praveen Paul, Mumtaz, Master Prithvi, Helen, Kanchanmala, Shiela Vaz, Samar Roy, Dalpat, Sudesh, Ramshastri, Bhujbal Singh Uma Dutt, S.K. Singh, Shri Bhagwan, Ajit Kumar, R.S. Dubey, Abdullah, Yadav, Julian and others.

This movie had as many as ten songs composed by Chitragupta and written by G.S. Nepali (Six songs) and Saraswati Kumar Deepak (four songs).

Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, Mohmmad Rafi, Shamshad Begam, Sudha Malhotra and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is written by Gopal Singh Nepali.

Actually, I came across this song as a song from the movie ‘Hanuman Chalisa – 1969’ on YouTube. As I was not aware of the details of this movie, I asked for the movie page from HFGK Vol IV from my daughter. Going through the details as mentioned in HFGK it is mentions that: –
“As per information from the production house ‘Basant Pictures, Bombay’ (1) this film was a collection of some parts of the previous movies produced by them, (2) also including songs from those movies, (3) and this movie ‘Hanuman Chalisa-1969’ was not a full-length feature film.
That made me more curious to know about its songs (if any) presented on the blog and if the today’s song was already there.
From the list I could not found any songs on the blog and keep repeatedly searching for titles with ‘Hanuman Chalisa’… until I find a link on YT which mentions the name of the movie as ‘Pawanputra Hanuman-1957/ Hanuman Chalisa-1969’ for this song ‘mere Raam kahaan ho tum …’

Three songs from this movie ‘Pawanputra Hanuman-1957’ have already been posted on the blog wherein our two respected Seniors Arun ji and Sadanand ji have shared two and one posts respectively sharing songs of this movie.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song sung by Rafi Saab and Sudha Malhotra and performed on screen by Mahipal and Anita Guha.

Blog Day : 3610 Post No. : 14400

When you are young, you take many of your gifts for granted. Only when you lose those gifts that you start mising them. For instance, I took my eyesight for granted for nearly fifth years. I had perfect 6/6 vision for much of my life, but now I cannot read without glasses.

To take another telling example, I was an indefatiguable runner in my younger days. I could run around for hours without running out of breath. But today I cannot even run ten metres, forget running 1500 metres in around five minutes that I was capable of during my younger days.

Forget comparing my present self with my past younger self of 35 years ago. When I compare the blog strike rate today with the blog strike rate of six years ago, I find a similar loss of agility. 🙂 During 2011 and 2012, we were clocking 100 songs every 16 days, and sometimes even faster. These days, we have become like a potbellied elderly person who can barely move. Our blog centuries these days are taking more than 30 days each. The previous century took exactly one month viz 31 days.

If one thought that we could not get any slower, then you need not look any further. This post is post number 14400 for the blog and it has taken 43 days ! I sincely hope that it is the last of such snail paced centuries and we would pick up some decent pace from now onwards.

This century post has taken almost an eternity to arrive and it will appear in the dying moments of the day (night), which means readers of the blog may not get much time to read it before the next post appears first thing in the morning.

This century post, like most of our century posts combines several landmarks, and some of these landmarks are “artificial” but real. Did I just use an oxymoron like say happily married ? 🙂

Let me count the special occasions that this song combines. This song is from a 1957 movie called “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957). This movie was directed by Jaswant jhaweri for Dinesh Films Bombay. This “historical” movie had Nirupa Roy, Jairaj, Ram singh, Al Nasir, Ramesh sinha, Sundar, Murad, Rajkumar, Shree Bhagwan, Ramlal, Sapru, Shyam Lal, Pandey, R S dubey, Devchand, Yashodhara Katju, Ratnamala, Heera, Helen, Veena. Guest artist-Minu Mumtaz etc in it.

The movie had 12 songs in it and the song under discussion is the first song from the movie. In other words, “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957) makes its debut in the blog. It is no ordinary debut though. As many as 113 movies were released in 1957. 99 of these movies were represented in the blog so far. So this movie is the 100th movie of 1957 to find representation in the blog !

There is another even more impressive number coming up ! The decade of 1950s (from 1951 upto 1960) saw 1111 movies getting released. 999 of these movies have been covered in the blog so far. So, ladies and gentlemen, this movie happens to be the 1000th movie of 1950s to get showcased in the blog ! We now have just 111 more movies of 1950s left to be covered in the blog. Of course songs of many of these movies may not be available. But that is for the future.

For now, let us enjoy this lovely duet from “Amar Singh Rathod”(1957). This song is sung by Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey and chorus. It is a dance song performed in a raj darbaar. I am unable to identify the actors performing the dance. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sanmukh Babu.

With this song, we now reach the landmark of 14400th song in the blog. We are just five weeks short of completing ten years of the blog which would be a REAL achievement for the blog. There would be nothing “artificial” in that massive landmark that will arrive soon.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continuous support and encouragement. I hope that the blog will pick up some real steam in the coming days and we will not only regain our glory days but hopefully exceed them as well.

Lyrics

sapnon ka chanda aaya

nain kamal ki pyaas bujhi
aaj suhaagan raat saji
jhoom uthha neelam ka gagan
pyaar bhari shahnaai baji
shahnaai baji
rum jhum jhum paayal baaje
madhosh tamannaa naache

har phool deewaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya

man chaahe mehmaan ho tum
armaanon ki jaan ho tum
ab na tumhen jaane doongi
chaahat ka imaan ho tum

taaron ka dil bhi doley
ye raat nasheeli boley
o chor hamaare dil ke
ab tujh to paana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya

saamne aaya pyaar mera
rang bhara sansaar mera
dekh nayi manzil pe piya
aaj hua deedaar tera
deedaar tera
ab jaana nahin dil se
armaanon ki mehfil se
o chain churaane waale
kya roop suhaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laya
taqdeer hamaari jagi
rangeen zamaana hai

ना जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया॰ ॰ ॰

The touch was of magic. But the real life is so different from reel life. A career that spanned well over five decades, the opportunities for this magic touch weren’t many.

Remembering Naqsh Lyallpuri on the anniversary of his birth (24th Feb).

The full real name of this poet was Jaswant Rai Sharma. He was born in 1928, in the Lyallpur town (now in Pakistan, and renamed to Faislabad). His father was an engineer and he wanted young Jaswant to follow his footsteps and be an engineer. His mother passed away when he was only six, and his father remarried. As the young child grew through his school and college days, his interest in literature became evident and prominent. He drifted apart from his father, for the obvious reason that his father did not look kindly at the literary interest of his son, whom he had dreamt of being another engineer in the family.

When he was 18, he went to work with Hero Publishers, a publishing house in Layallpur. Just about a year later, partition happened, and he moved with family to Lucknow. His literary and poetic interests and activities met with a stern disapproval from his father. The drift made the young Jaswant leave home and move to Bombay, in search of a career as a songwriter. He took on the pen name of ‘Naqsh’ – meaning an imprint or an impression, and added Lyallpuri, being the town of his birth.

The early years, rather the early decades were just a struggle. He first started working with Times of India as a proof reader, and later got an employment with the Post Office. As for literary activities, he was drawn into the theatre activities to start with and started writing stage plays. Here, he came in touch with actor Ram Mohan, who in turn, introduced him to Jagdish Sethi. After reading some of his poetical works, Jagdish Sethi gave the first opportunity to write for films. He (Jagdish Sethi) was in the process of making the film ‘Jaggu’, which got released in 1952. He introduced Naqsh to the music director of the film – Hansraj Behl. And Naqsh got to write one song for this film.

The lyricist and the MD struck up a good friendship, and Hansraj Behl called upon Naqsh to write for him again in ‘Pensioner’ (1954) and ‘Mast Qalandar’ (1955). And so the career train started to move, albeit quite slowly. In 1955, he got his first independent assignment as a a lyricist for the film ‘Teen Sardar (1955), for which he wrote 6 songs. In ones and twos, songs written by him started getting popular. However, recognition as an impressive songwriter eluded him till the latter part of 1960s.  In 1968 came the film ‘Teri Talaash Mein’. The film did not do well, but its songs became very popular. With music by Sapan-Jagmohan, songs like “Kho Diye Hain Sanam Teri Talash Mein” in Asha Bhosle’s voice, the Rafi rendition of “Teri Awaaz Ki Jaadugari Se”, another one by Asha Bhosle – “Raaze-Dil Hamse Kaho Hum To Koi Ghair Nahin” etc. became very well known.

From here starts the ascendency of Naqsh Sb’s popularity. Continuing from this 1968 musical hit, he found the popular pulse with songs like “Main To Har Mod Par Tujhko Doonga Sadaa” (‘Chetna’, 1970), “Sajaaya Na Karo Phool Baalon Pe” (‘Gunaahon Ke Raaste’, 1970), “Jindagi Ke Mod Par Hum Tum Mile. . .” (‘Mann Tera Tan Mera’, 1971), “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan” (‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Le Chalo, Le Chalo, Ab Kahin Le Chalo” (‘Maan Jaaiye’, 1972), “Kai Sadiyon Se Kai Janmon Se” (‘Milaap’, 1973), “Rasm e Ulfat Ko Nibhaayen To Nibhaayen Kaise” (‘Dil Ki Raahen’, 1973), “Ye Shaam Hai Dhuaan Dhuaan” (‘Ek Naao Do Kinaare’, 1973), “Mere Mann Pawan Sang Udd Chal” (‘Ek Naari Do Roop’,1973), “Do Honth Hile Ek Geet Suna” (‘Nai Duniya Naye Log’, 1973), “Ulfat Mein Zamaane Ki Har Rasm Ko Thukraao” (‘Call Girl’, 1974), “Har Janam Mein Hamaara Milan” (‘Kaagaz Ki Naao’, 1975), “Tumhen Ho Na Ho Mujhko To. . .” (‘Ghraonda’, 1977), “Tumhen Dekhti Hoon To Lagta Hai Aise” (‘Tumhaare Liye’, 1978), “Yeh Mulaaqaat Ek Bahaana Hai” (‘Khandaan’, 1979), “Phir Teri Yaad Naye Deep Jalaane Aayi” (‘Aayee Teri Yaad’, 1980), “Maana Teri Nazar Mein Tera Pyaar Hum Nahin” (‘Ahista Ahista’, 1981), “Na Jaane Kye Hua, Jo Tu Ne Chhoo Liya” and “Pyaar Ka Dar Hai, Meetha Meetha, Pyaara Pyaara” (‘Dard’, 1981) – an many more.

In 2005, when Naushad Sb came on board for composing music for the film ‘Taj Mahal’, then Naqsh Lyallpuri was called upon to write the songs. Again, then in 2007, when Khaiyyaam Sb was scoring the music for the film ‘Yatra’, Naqsh Sb wrote the songs. A journey of almost six decades, that started in 1952 with the song “Agar Teri Aankhon Se Aankhen Mila Doon”, continued into next millennium, with elan.

In 2016, he had a fall, and a hip bone fracture. He was hospitalized in October 2016, and never did recover from this injury. He passed away on 22nd Jan, 2017.

Dhala Din Aise, Doob Gaya Jaise
Jalta Sooraj Raat Ke Gehre Andhere Mein…  (‘Laal Kothi’, 1978)

The song I present today is from an extremely obscure film from 1960 – ‘Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar’, which also carried the alternate title as ‘Black Rider’. The film makes its debut on our blog today. This film is directed by Mehmood, for the production banner of Screen Arts. The cast of actors of this costume drama film is listed briefly as Kaamran, Krishna Kumari, Habeeb, Sham, and Najma. The film has five songs listed, all penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Harbans.

A very delightful song of aspirations of love, it is a lovely rendition by Sudha Malhotra.

 

Song – Maine Dekha Hai Sapna Bahaar Ka  (Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar) (1960) Singer – Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Harbans

Lyrics

maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

main na samjhoon
main na jaanoon
koi bataaye mujhko kya ho gaya hai
jhukti jaayen
meri palken
baithe bithaae mera dil kho gaya hai
dil kho gaya hai
rang aankhon mein jhalke khumaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

chupke chupke
dil mein apne
maine basaa li hai duniya niraali
mere armaan
khil gaye hain
jabse mila hai mujhe bagiya ka maali
bagiya ka maali
haal poochho na dil e beqaraar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

pyar ban ke
aane waala
laaya hai mere liye naghme khushi ke
zindgagi ne
rang badla
ab na lagenge mujhe din pheeke pheeke
din pheeke pheeke
yehi mausam hai mere singaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

———————————————————
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

मैं ना समझूँ
मैं ना जानूँ
कोई बताए मुझे क्या हो गया है
झुकती जाएँ
मेरी पलकें
बैठे बिठाये मेरा दिल खो गया है
दिल खो गया है
रंग आँखों में झलके खुमार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

चुपके चुपके
दिल में अपने
मैंने बसा ली है दुनिया निराली
मेरे अरमां
खिल गए हैं
जबसे मिला है मुझे बगिया का माली
बगिया का माली
हाल पूछो न दिल ए बेक़रार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

प्यार बनके
आने वाला
लाया हैं मेरे लिए नग़में खुशी के
ज़िंदगी ने
रंग बदला
अब ना लगेंगे मुझे दिन फीके फीके
दिन फीके फीके
यही मौसम है मेरे सिंगार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

Blog Day : 3484 Post No. : 13995

Today (31 january 2018) is the last day of the first month on the year 2018. The new year began just 31 days ago. It already appears to most people that first january 2018 was long long ago. 🙂 Most people have already given up on their new year resolutions by now, assuming that they actually made such resolutions in the first place.

I am far more disciplined and determined as far as sticking to my resolutions are concerned. My two new year resolutions for the blog were –
(a) to post one “debutant”” movie song every day.
(b) to post one YIPPEE movie song every day.

We have so far managed to stick to our resolutions.

Our regulars have been a great help in the cause of introducing “debutant” movies to the blog as some of the articles contributed by them are the first song of movies. There are still a couple of thousand movies that are not yet covered in the blog so introducing “debutant” songs on a regular basis is a resolution that one can stick to without much problem.

The “YIPPEE” resolution is rather more challenging. It basically means covering ALL the songs of a movie. While it is possible to get a few songs for many movies, getting ALL the songs of a movie is a tough challenge. There may be some movies where all songs are easily available, but most movies turn out to be such where one or two songs are quite rare and are unavailable online. Locating these elusive songs becomes a challenge – and a time consuming challenge at that. The fact that we now a days post only about three or four songs a day, and not six or seven as was the case in the past, can be partially explained by the fact that we give considerable thought to YIPPIABLE movies these days, which was not the case in the past.

I have a list of movies that have just one or two songs left in them. So at any given day, I have several movies to pick from for YIPPYing. This choice sometimes comes to our rescue. For instance, it turns out that not one but two movies with suitable final song that we thought were YIPPiable on 26 January turned out to contain another song in them. Still, I was able to post another appropriate song from another movie that turned out to be the YIPPEE movie of that day. I in fact had one more movie as YIPPEE backup for republic day. 🙂

While posting YIPPEE movies daily, we cannot neglect those movies that have three or four songs left in them. We need to regularly cover these songs so that we have more number of movies with just one song left so that we can have a steady supply of YIPPiable movies.

The final song of some of these YIPPIable movies are so great that I am tempted to hold them back. The song under question is one such song. This song is from “Gauhar” (1953).

“Gauhar” (1953) was directed by F H Hasan for All Indian Pictures production, Bombay. The movie had Bina Rai, Rehman, Agha, Vijaylaxmi, Chaman Puri, Charlie, Cuckoo etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past. This sixth and final song is a rare song, and one that sounds like an archtypical puraani film ka song. I have liked this song so much that I toyed with the idea of this song being utilised as a century song, and even as a thousandth song for the blog. But finally I have decided that we cannot hold on to our YIPPIable songs just like that. Sooner or later we have to cover these songs.

So finally, I am letting go of this superb song from “Gauhar” (1953). This song is sung by Shamshad Begum and Sudha Malhotra. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

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

With this song,”Gauhar” (1953) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
