23 rd September was Tanuja’s 77th Birthday and 25th September, 2020 is the 81st birth Anniversary of Feroze Khan. Incidentally, these two have acted opposite each other in at least one film, i.e. Ek Paheli (1971). These are three songs already posted in the blog from this film :

AAnsoo ki ek boond hoon main
kaahe karta hai tu itna shor…tera mera ik rasta
Mera tumhaaera saath to sadiyon ka saath hai

I have seen a few songs yesterday while deciding which one to post, they are mostly in the same genre of songs where the heroine Tanuja is singing in some ruined fort like locality with a cemetery inside the ruins. I found one more song of similar setting, where the face of lady singing the song is not shown, so I could not be sure that it is Tanuja. In the song that I have selected, the smiling Tanuja is very much visible and in her customary stylish self with high heels and a small handbag dangling from one hand. The formal attire with the party dress also is not suitable for the location where she is singing the song and leading a curious Feroze khan inside the cavernous ruins of the fort, in broad daylight. She is looking like no “bhoot’, so no bhoot or rooh in this song. SumanKalyanpure is the singer of this song composed by UshaKhanna. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist.

I can find a lot of similarities between these two actors of yesteryears. Both were stylish and good looking. While Tanuja came from a film family and must have been surrounded by the family connections in the film industry, Feroz Khan was an outsider. They both had siblings in the film industry, but I think Tanuja’s sister Nutan was estranged from her family. From the filmography it is seen that most of Feroze Khan’s films are with Mumtaz. They must have a good personal equation also, much like common people do, which results in their children marrying each other. I have read somewhere these two, Mumtaz and Feroz Khan became great friends during their struggling days and Amitabh Bachchan was also a part of this friendly circle, also a struggler.

There are a lot of bad and worst things being said, heard, written and repeated about the film industry and its so called ‘movers and shakers’, in recent times. It is a known fact that all that glitters is not gold. There are always dark and murkier things below the surface. And those who choose to be part of it are going in the murky waters with their eyes open. There are hardly any secrets in this world anymore, let alone the film industry. We as outsiders can only be this much detached and away from the ugliness, and try to maintain the façade of art and culture, and hide our knowledge and apprehension behind beautiful music, or what else we find good and appreciable.

In the 50’s and 60’s decades, there were people going in the industry to make a living or decent living. Some were maybe so impoverished that, there was hardly a choice to make, between flesh trade or do hard labour in the film studio as extra artist. And there are always ambitious people ready to give all and compromise all for either easy money or name and fame, or to be rid of financial ruin caused by their family members. Too much money or too little, it is a factor. Nepotism exists here too as it does everywhere else, in any form.

This is what MeenaKumari means when she says :

Aabl apaa koyi iss dasht mein aaya hogaa
Warna aandhi mein diya kisne jalaaya hogaa

Or when she says this :

Jalti bujhti si roshni ke pare
Simta simta sa ek makaan tanhaa

This was an insider view, saying things through poetry, what cannot be said for fear of losing its charm, glitter and shine.

The two actors Feroze Khan and Tanuja have spent their lives in the industry, been right in the thick of things. We can certainly say a few good things about these two, that they were talented and their successes were due to their talent and hard work.


Song-Main ek paheli hoon barson se akeli hoon (Ek Paheli)(1971) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

Main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
mujhe jaan’ne walaaa koyi nahin
pehchanne waalaa koyi nahin
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

mere paas aa
mere meharbaan
na de door hi se
sadaa mujhe ae
main hoon ik charaagh
bujhaa huaa
tu jalaa sakey to
jalaa mujhe
tu jalaa sakey to
jalaa mujhe
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

meri kab se hai
yahi aarzoo
ke mujhe galey se
lagaaye tu
tere dil ka dard
mitaaun main
mere dil ki pyaas
bujhaaye tu
mere dil ki pyaas
bujhaaye tu
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

tujhe kya khabar
ke tere liye
main na jaane kab se
udaas hoon
meraa pyaar dekh ke
har ghadi
tere saathh hoon
tere paas hoon
tere saathh hoon
tere paas hoon
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
mujhe jaan’ne waalaa koyi nahin
pehchaan’ne waalaa koyi nahin
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

Missing Films of 1960s – 116
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, wonderful. Revisiting an old friend after a very long gap. Feels good.

This series was initiated on 30th Sep, 2015, almost 5 years ago to the day. The series continued with a certain regularity almost for four years, till 1st July, 2019. That day, I had posted a rarest of the rare finds – “Taaron Bhari Raat Hai” – a song from the film ‘Hawa Mahal’ (1962), a film which is very much available in video, but sadly all its songs have been axed from the VCD release. I had written in that post, that I had even gone beyond the VCD version and searched out the VHS cassette of the film, and even that had no songs. But fortunately, searching thru film, I accidentally chanced to catch half a song that appeared at the end of the film. Probably, when the editors were making the cuts, for whatever reasons (which we do not know at this point), they had missed out the closing shots of the film, whereat one song is repeated partially as is the tradition followed in many Hindi films we know.

That was the 112th episode of this series. And I believed at that time that I had exhausted all the available films of 1960s that I could gather from all the sources I could take help from. But I was so wrong in my belief at that time. And man, am I glad that I was so wrong. Actually, as soon as that post appeared, I got a few messages from friends on the blog and off it, that hey, this here is another film available, so please check it out. I did, and found a few more films and songs available, that have helped to keep this series alive and continuing.

The frequency has reduced significantly, but surely, we have now added three more films to the series. We keep chugging along, and hopefully will continue to reduce the number of films which sit on the list of pending films from 1960s. I bring on board one more film from 1960s, that had been unavailable for quite sometime. And to let you know, there still are two more films that have been identified and I will be posting them appropriately.

The intent of the series continues today with a song from the 1965 film ‘Panch Ratan’. This obscure film had remained so for quite many years. Even the Geet Kosh did not carry the complete information about this film. The list of songs is there, but the songs themselves remained elusive for long. It appears that the songs of this film were not released on gramophone records, and so the audio version of the songs of this film remains out of reach even today. However, the video of this film has been available online for almost 10 years now, indicating that it was a major miss on my part as I started searching five years or so ago, for missing films of 1960s.

Anyway. The film is available, as are its songs. Here is the first song of this film, as it makes it debut on our blog here today. The film is produced under the banner of Broadway Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Kamran. The film is a costume drama, with a theme that has been oft repeated in Hindi cinema and also the world cinema. The theme is the variation of the storyline in which a group of well meaning friends come together in a pact of solidarity, to overthrow a local regime of a tyrannical bad-man. Films on this theme are plenty across the world – ‘Seven Samurai’, and ‘The Magnificent Seven’ immediately come to mind, as do films like ‘Khotey Sikkey’ etc. I am sure readers will be able to add more films as examples.

The cast of the film is listed as Randhawa, Parveen Chaudhary, Kamran, Shaam Kumar, Kamal Mehra, Habeeb, Amarnath, Randhir, Meenakshi, Sadhana Khote, Fazal, Moolchand, Sabir, Anjum, Madhumati, Jeevankala, Aruna, Lakshmichaya, Saudagar Singh, Joginder Singh, Vasant Singh, and Sony Alexander etc.

The film has five songs, all in video. None of these songs have appeared any gramophone records. Four of the songs are written by Anjaan and one song is credited to Upendra. Today’s song is by Anjaan. Music for this film is composed by Sardar Malik. Today, I present the first song of this film here. This is a raj-darbaar dance song – a dance performed in a royal court setting. The singing voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. On screen, the song has been performed by actress Aruna. The identification of the dancer has been made by our dear Prakash ji. Also, in this video clip, we can see Parveen Chaudhry, Randhir, and Kamran, seated on the raised dias watching this performance. In between, the scene cuts to a dungeon where we see Randhawa and Shaam Kumar as prisoners being tortured by the king’s soldiers. We also see three other soldiers enter the dungeon, one of whom is actually a lady dressed as a male soldier. Apparently, these three are friends of Randhawa who have come to rescue him. Their identity gets revealed as the helmet of lady gets disturbed and her long hair fall down. A melee ensues in which Randhawa and Shaam Kumar are freed and the chief of the torture chamber is put in chains. All this while the dance and the song continues in the royal court. There is help required to identify all the players in this clip, and I request Prakash ji and other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help to identify more actors.

With this song, ‘Panch Ratan’ makes its debut here on the blog. And it also bring up the 116th episode of this series. I must admit that the gap in the episodes has been quite a bit, and even this post has been prompted by the fact that another post, by Sadanand ji, is now waiting to be posted, and it uses another song of this film. When Atul ji and I received the post from Sadanand ji, I was prompted into quick action to ensure that the debut song of this film is first brought on board as part of this series and then the post by Sadanand ji gets published. I must thank him for being patient to wait for me to post this debut song. His post should be coming on within a day.

Another very interesting observation here. In the flurry of Ten Year Challenge posts, we seem to have backed away from posting debut songs. The last debut song posted here was on 5th Sept, nineteen days ago. And 46 posts ago. Meaning that in the past nineteen days, 46 songs have been posted and not a single one is from a debut film. We need to research whether this is a record. I am not sure, but seems quite like it.

I will sign off now and let you take a view and listen to this wonderful fast paced melody which is quite attractive in the first hear itself. The dance movements and expressions presented by Aruna are very impressive. A song that surely is worth watching as well as hearing.

“Naag Mohini”(1963) was directed by Shantilal Soni for Dimple Films Bombay. This “pauraaanik” movie had Vijaya Chadhary, Mahipal, Sundar, Rajan Haksar, Bablu, Uma Dutt, Indira Bansal, Rajrani, Sood, Khursheed etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Naag Mohini”(1963) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik.

The song is picturised as an “inspirational” song, which to me sounds more like a “putting up a brave face” genre of song on a kid who could be Bablu going by the star cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the kid.


Song-Hum hain baalak kal ke maalik (Naag Mohini)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
samjho mat naadaan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik

jungle ho ujaad ho
saamne pahaad ho
sheron ki dahaad ho
koi na sake re humen thhaamne
din ho ya raat ho
aandhi barsaat ho
koi bhi na saath ho
badhte hi jaayen hum saamne
hum hain bachche
dhun ke sachche
sheron ki santaa aan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hai baalak
kal ke maalik

dikhne mein kamzor hum
shakti mein ghanghor hum
aandhiyon ka zor hum
pade na kisi ko hum se vaasta
chaahe jalti aag ho
bhaazlu cheeta baagh ho
fan uthaaye naag ho
koi na roke humaara raasta
hum hain ladke
hum jo bhadken
ban jaaye toofaa aan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwaan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik
samjho na naadaan
aa jaayen gar hathh pe apni
jhukta hai bhagwan
ho o
hum hain baalak
kal ke maalik

This Week, That Year – 2

06Sep – 12Sep, 2010

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 77
————————————————–

If nothing else, then this week 10 years ago has to be characterized as the ‘Anmol Ghadi’ week. I am sure it was by design that every day of this week (actually six days of this week, barring the last day), the first song posted every morning is a song from the 1946 film ‘Anmol Ghadi’. This film has 12 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. As we entered this week ten years ago, five of these were already posted on the blog. That left seven. I am sure Atul ji took it upon himself to get the ‘Yippeee’ status for this film in a quick order, by posting one each of the remaining seven songs on each day of the week. And be done with it.

Well almost. Starting from 6th September in 2010, all the way through 11th September, Atul ji held true to his promise and posted the first song on these six days, that belonged to this iconic film. It almost sounds as if the ‘Atul-Song-a-Day’ blog was transformed into ‘Anmol-Ghadi-Song-a-Day’ for this week.

But then, we arrive at 12th September, the last song of this film which would have brought fame and recognition – well, it could not be posted. We have six posts on the day, but no ‘Anmol Ghadi’. I am keen to know from Atul ji, what happened that made him miss this target.

I had actually scanned through the posts for ‘Anmol Ghadi’ songs for that week. And I came to realize one thing. You see, the concept Yippeee had not yet been invented on this blog. And Atul ji was just going after this film, because of its music. As I checked the complete set of songs of this film on the blog, I find that the continuous posting thing had actually started on 4th September. On that day, Atul ji has simply written that this film has 12 songs, that three are already posted and that the film has wonderful music, so let us just bring it on board quickly. That was the simple thought behind continuously posting a song from this film, as the first song of the day, from 4th to 11th Sept. then the 12th date is missed. And the final song of the film gets duly posted on 13th.

And so, my eager anticipation awaits a response from Atul ji. “Why 12th was missed.’’

Here is the chart of posts for the week, ten years ago.

The numbers for the week -,

The posting continued at the then current brisk rate. The week saw a total of 43 songs posted, with the  daily rate being six songs per day, with one of the days showing up with seven. The 43 songs came from 37 films – six of them from ‘Anmol Ghadi’ and another two from the film ‘Milan’ of 1967. The remaining 35 songs are one each from 35 films.

The week witnessed as many as 13 debuts. Thirteen films made their appearance for the first time on the blog. No films got yippeee’d, with ‘Anmol Ghadi’ being the close call of almost there. Of the total 37 films featured that week, 29 have been yippeee’d during the interim decade, whereas 8 films are still awaiting completion of their songs on the blog.

The physical post numbers stretched from 2914 to 2956. So actually a blog century – the 29th, has happened in the previous week.

The guest post activity was fairly low in those times. Of the 43 posts, Atul ji accounts for 38, and only five posts came from the contributing team. Three of these posts are from Raja ji, one from Santosh Ojha ji, and one very interesting post on Shammi Kapoor from – yes, you guessed it – Greta Memsaab. A very interesting and informative post that identifies many of the side players in this group dance song – “Dekho Ab To, Kisko Nahin Hai Khabar” from the film ‘Janwar’ of 1965,

This post, having been delayed quite a bit, comes on the last day of the week under analysis. On this day, there is one film still pending for Yippeee status. The film is ‘Patanga’ from 1971. Two songs of this film are remaining to be posted. With this post we bring one of them on to the blog. Which means that this film is now just one song away from being inducted into the Yippeee hall of fame.

The song that I present today is a mujra dance song, being performed on screen by Laxmi Chhaya. There is an assortment of audience, as we regularly get to see in most mujra dance songs in films. I can clearly identify three of them. Wasti and Ajit are sitting together on a white sofa, and the bespectacled and balding Haroon is on a chair next to Ajit. The song is the regular mujra type choreography, with the dancer complaining that she has wasted her youth getting entangled with “you”, the addressal of “you” here being directed towards any of the many males sitting in the audience.

‘Patanga’ is a social film, produced under the banner of KR Films, Bombay and is directed by Kedar Kapoor. The list of actors reads as – Shashi Kapoor, Vimmi, Ajit, Rajendra Nath, Sajjan, Vasti, Ashok Kapoor, Lakshmi Chhaya, Zeb Rehman, Jagdish Raj, Ram Mohan, Leela Mishra, Praveen Pal, Geeta, Ameena Bai, Ram Avtar, Shekhar Purohit, Prem, Shiva Chandra, Ravindra Kumar, Haroon, Lal, Nasir, Balram, Santosh, and Rajkumar.

Interesting side note here that this is third film of actress Vimmi, who appeared in only 5 films during her short career that lasted from 1967 (debut in the film ‘Hamraaz’) to 1974 (‘Vachan’ being her last film).

The film has 8 songs. As mentioned above, after this post, we now have just one more song remaining for this film. Of the eight songs, four are from the pen of Neeraj, three by Hasrat Jaipuri and one penned by Indeewar. This song is from the pen of Neeraj.

The music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Yes, remembering Jaikishan today, on his remembrance day today. He passed away on 12th September in 1971. Interesting to note that this film was certified by the Censor Board on 20th August, 1971. It is possible that this film was just released, or maybe even released after, the passing away of Jaikishan.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by dear Avinash ji.

And so, the penultimate song of ‘Patanga’ of 1971 – a run of the mill mujra performance as demanded by the formula.

Blog Day :

4414 Post No. : 15814

Today, August 18th 2020 is 86th Birth Day of the poet, lyricist, story, screen-play and dialogue writer, producer and director, Gulzar. His presence in Hindi film industries is an assurance that lovers of Hindi films and Hindi film songs would continue to get the opportunity to watch and listen to the meaningful films and songs. I regard Gulzar Saab as an extension of what Sahir Ludhianvi left in October 1980 – a legacy of poetry in Hindi film songs.

I have already covered a substantive information about the filmy career of Gulzar saab in my articles ae hairat-e-aashiqui jagaa mat on the occasion of his 85th birth day last year and in shaam se aankh mein nami si hai, abut 5 years back. Also, there is no dearth of information on Gulzar Saab on the internet, in the print media and his website. So, I would skip this part.

What a great journey Gulzar saab has with Hindi film industry which began in early 1960s as a lyricist. He became an assistant to Bimal Roy and eventually became a director with ‘Mere Apne’ (1971). During his almost six decades in Hindi film industry, he wrote nearly 700 songs, wrote screen-play/dialogues for nearly 50 films and directed 19 films. In addition, he wrote and directed a few TV serials like ‘Mirza Ghalib’(1988), ‘Noopur’ (1990), ‘Potli Baba Ki’ (1991), ‘Tehreer Munshi Premchand Ki’ (2004) etc. He published many novels, short stories and collections of his poems. Of late, Gulzar saab has been busy with translating in Hindi, poems in regional languages from all over India for their wider dessimination.

On the occasion of 86th birth day of Gulzar Saab, I have chosen a song of a rare combination – Gulzar-Suman Kalyanpur-Shankar-Jaikishan. The song is ‘ek thhi nindiya do thhe naina’ from the film ‘Seema’ (1971). Probably, Gulzar saab got involved in writing the lyrics of a couple of songs in this film as he was the story-screen-play-dialogue writer for the film. Surendra Mohan made his debut as a director in this film. The film was produced by Sohanlal Kanwar. The story of the film is summarised below:

Seema (Simi Garewal) has lost her parents in her childhood and she has been brought up by her caring uncle (Abhi Bhattacharya). In her grown-up years, Seema develops a superstition that whoever loved her would get the same fate as her parents. She spends her time mostly alone except with a friend, Rajni (Kanchan) who tries to erase her superstition by saying that she is still alive despite Seema loving her but of no avail.

Seema’s life gets a change when she come across a charming Sunil (Kabir Bedi). But her superstition will not allow her to reciprocate his love. He convinces her to overcome her fear and they get married in a temple. Unfortunately, after few days, Sunil dies in an accident and the fear of superstition returns to Seema as she is pregnant with his child in the womb. She gives birth to Banke (Rakesh Roshan) in secrecy as the society does not know of her marriage to Sunil. The child is brought up by her maid (Chand Usmani) who is kept away from Seema’s home out of fear of losing her child. However, Seema keeps the tab over her son’s activities from a distance.

Banke grows up cosying with Chamki (Bharathi) and also trying to discover as to who his parents are. After a lot of poignant moments in the film, it is Rajni who eventually reveals to Banke that Seema is his mother and his father had died of accident. Seema embraces Banke thus giving up her superstitions.

The song under discussion is a lori which have been picturised in the film on two occasions. First, Suman Kalyanpur sings for Simi on piano. The second, Sushma Shreshta sings for the boy which is taken over by Suman Kalyanpur singing for Chand Usmani as a continuation of the lori. In the audio clip, the entire lori is sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

‘Seema’ (1971) was Jaikishan’s last film. He died while the film was in the making.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No.50
————————————————–

Ten years ago, viz on 5 August 2010, the blog had covered six songs from six different movies, belonging to years from 1959 to 1973. Details of these songs are as follows:-

Song post number song Movie-year Remarks
2732 Sajna lagan teri sone na de Duniyaa Naa Maane-1959 YIPPEED (All 8 songs covered)
2733 Raaz e dil unse chhupaayaa naa gayaa Apna Banaake Dekho-1962 YIPPEED (all ten songs covered)
2734 Aaj huaa meraa dil matwaalaa Chhote Nawaab-1963 YIPPEED (All 8 songs covered)

2737 Wo jidhar dekh rahe hain sab udhar dekh rahe hain Sabak-1973 3 songs covered out of 7

One can observe that the first five movies covered that day have already been YIPPEED by now. That leaves us with only one movie viz “Sabak”(1973), that has not yet been YIPPEED and so this movie is eligible for the blog ten year challenge today.

Out o seven songs that this movie has, only three have been covered so far.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya
zindagi ye phad phadaake haayye reh gayee
zaalim zamane ne kaat diye par
mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya
zindagi ye phad phadaake haayye reh gayee
zaalim zamane ne kaat diye par
mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya

aag hamaarey dil mein lagi hai ae
phir bhi jawaani naach rahi hai ae
aag hamaarey dil mein lagi hai
phir bhi jawaani naach rahi hai ae
apne kiye pe khush hai zamaana
hum to bane hain sabka nishaana
zindagi ye phad phadaake haayye reh gayee
zaalim zamaane ne kaat diye par
mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya

jaayein kahaan par udd na sakey dil
raah andheri haayye rey mushkil
jaayein kahaan par udd na sakey dil
raah andheri haayye rey mushkil
duniya ke bheed mein hosh kho gaya
milta nahin hai koi raasta
zindagi ye phad phadaake haayye reh gayee
zaalim zamaane ne kaat diye par
mann ka ye panchhi haayye kare kya
sone ke pinjre mein qaid ho gaya

Today 25th July 2020 is being celebrated as Naag Panchami falling in this year ‘shraavan maas’ shukla paksh on Panchami. Greetings to all on this occasion which also marks the beginning of many upcoming festivals in our country.

For this occasion, I had earlier noted a movie falling under ‘movies with same titles’ to be presented with a song on the blog for today. However, when I checked that movie, I do not find a suitable song ‘praising naag devtaa’ in that movie (from seventies). Then I looked a new movie from the ‘seventies’ having ‘naag’ related titles so that it can make a ‘debut’ on the blog. But I could not find a suitable song in that movie too.

In our Hindi movies we have many mythological movies where ‘naag’ or ‘naag devtaa’ had an important role and many fantasy movies having the stories of ‘snakes’, ‘female snake revenge’ and or ‘snake charmers’. I thought to present a list of all such movies which have already been represented on the blog, but for now I have differed that for a separate post later in the future. In the process I came across this wonderful song from the 1963 movie ‘Naag Mohini’. I like this song very much and as I listened to it more and more it grows on me.

Today I am presenting this melodious song picturized on screen on Master Babloo who is lip syncing in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur (yes, in those times, female singer’s voice would be the voice of a small child in songs 🙂 ).

“Naag Mohini-1963”, a mythological movie, was directed by Shantilal Soni for ‘Dimple Film, Bombay’. It has Vijaya Choudhary, Mahipal, Sunder, Rajan Haksar, Master Babloo, Uma Dutt, Indra Bansal, Rajrani, Sood and Khurshid. This movie has six songs written by Bharat Vyas and music is composed by Sardar Malik. Mohd Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices in the songs of this movie.

So far three songs from this movie ‘Naag Mohini-1963’ have been posted on the blog. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs of this movie.

Let us now enjoy this wondrous song and the cute performance on the song by Master Babloo. . .

As mentioned above the song is in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur, lyrics are by Bharat Vyas and music composed by Sardar Malik.

Blog Day :

4384 Post No. : 15740

Today is 19 july 2020. It was on this day in 2008 that this blog had started.

I had observed that the starting date was perhaps pre ordained. That day in 2008 was the first day of the month of Shraawan (or saawan), which is so very appropriate for a HFM blog, seeing that a big chunk of FM is inspired by saawan related songs, viz “rain songs”, “saawan ke jhoole” songs, and many other genres of songs.

I recently made another discovery. 19 july 2008 (and also today viz 19 july 2020) happen to be the 200th day of the year ! So, the belief that some higher forces , (rather than us mortals) are driving the affairs of this blog gets validated yet again.

People may have noticed that as many as four posts appeared today before 6 AM IST, and then there was no more activity. As it happened, I was going to get busy after 6 AM today so I made sure that today, the blog birthday should have a few posts. all regulars who had sent their articles on the occasion were scheduled to appear in the morning. I too intended to post at least one article, but that was not possible till evening.

Now that I am in a position to come to the keyboard again, let me try and post at least one of my writeups today.

Sudhir Jee made an observation that four songs appeared on this day ten years ago. On first three posts on that day, there was no mention of the day being the blog birthday. it was the fourth and final post of that day that mentioned this fact. 🙂

Today, every post is about blog birthday. so we have come a long way from that day.

We are not just adding posts, we are only gathering valuable database about HFM, and invaluable tidbits, often without realising it. Some of the information shared in these pages are not available elsewhere. Not just ordinary music lovers, but even relatives of HFM personalities are visitors of this blog. For instance, children of several music directors, lyricists and actors are visitors of this blog. Even some HFM personalities have visited and left comments in the blog. There visits , comments etc have been a source of great inspirations to us.

I must also stress that the regulars of this blog, including the contributors are all very special people in their own ways. We have among our regulars some have been related to HFM in some way or the other. Then there are some, whose ancestors have been great figures in some field or the other. We even have persons whose ancestors have been founding fathers of cities ! We have published authors and columnists among us. we have organisers of HFM events, and also people who have appeared on Radio/ TV shows, are among our contributors. So, we have a galaxy of distinguished contributors among us, who create quality content for the blog which enriches not just this blog but also HFM related knowledge base.

The fact that this blog has helped bring a galaxy of stars together is something that often escapes our attention. on this occasion, I want to acknowledge, appreciate and thank this galaxy of distinguished contributors, visitors and regulars. Without their contribution and encouragement, we would not have achieved the things that we have achieved over the 12 years that this blog has been in existence.

I feel that the blog is destined to achieved many more things in the years to come.

On this occasion, I present a song discussing this “anjuman sitaaron ki”. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and chorus. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerjee. the movie is “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). This obscure B grade movie was directed by B J Patel for Peoples Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shanti Lal, Rajan Kapoor, Babu Raje, Bhopali, Polsan, Shakila Bano etc in it.

The movie had six obscure but wondeful songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past. This is the third song, a super song, and quite an appropriate song for the occasion.

Once again, I thank one and all on the occasion of the birthday of the blog. Let us hoope and wish that this musical bandwagon will keep rolling on and on for many more years.


Song-Anjuman sitaaron ki (Rocket Tarzan)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Robin Bannerjee
Chorus

Lyrics

anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

usi ke liye hai jo itna samajh le
ye zindagi zindaadili ka naam hai ae ae
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

ye uska jahaaaan hai
jo khud ek tohfa hai
ghamon se jo takraate hain
wahi manzilen paate hain
ye baaten ?? hain
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

usi ke liye hai jo itna samajh le
ye zindagi zindaadili ka naam hai ae ae
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

ye saara zamaanaa
hai ik aashiyaana
bana lo jahaan ko apna
ye hai zindagi ka sapna
ye mera payaam (?) hai
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

usi ke liye hai jo itna samajh le
ye zindagi zindaadili ka naam hai ae ae
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

– नमस्कार सर जी , जय श्री कृष्ण,
अविनाश बोल रहा हूँ,

– बोलिए बोलिए अविनाश भाई,

– कैसे हैं सर आप

– मुझे क्या हुआ है ?

That is our respected Bharat Bhai. I spoke to him last in this March. Just a courtesy call. But whenever I spoke to him, he was always energetic, full of life and cheerful. . .

I used to call him occasionally, in between particularly after meeting him first time in November 2016 during the Mumbai gang-out. Thereafter the second meeting happened in April 2018 at Surat when Arun ji, Sadanand ji and Bharat Bhai came to meet Harish Raghuvanshi ji at his place.

But today, on 16th May we got this sad news of his demise on 8th of this month.

We all pray to god to rest his soul in peace!!!

Our heartfelt condolences and tributes to him!!!

This song which could have been a part of his series ‘Sureeli Suman’ which I had shared to him and requested a post, but it could not happen somehow, may be because of his health issues. . .

After coming back from Kenya to India I was eager to visit Mumbai and meet him but it could not happen.

On 19th March I called him to greet him on his birthday and also to seek his blessings, as I always used to do while ending the conversation.

– मैं आऊँगा मुंबई आपसे मिलने … मुझे आशीर्वाद दीजिये,

– वो तो हमेशा ही आपके साथ है और रहेगा, इसमें तो कोई बोलने कि बात ही नहीं है,

– ठीक है सर , मिलते है फिर …

We will miss you Sir!!!

The warmth, the love you showered in every meeting and whenever I spoke to you will always remain in memory – the musical meetings, your smiling face and your lovable presence around us will always be missed.

प्रणाम सर जी !

 

 

Song – Ummeedon Se Keh Do Ke Na Aansoo Bahaayen (Jwaalamukhi) (UR) (1950s)(1959) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Dukhi Amritsari, MD – Devraj

Lyrics

ummeedon se keh do
ke na aansoo bahaayein
rone ko ab to aa gayi hain
kaali ghataayein
ummeedon se keh do

keh do ke ab na machlen
seene mein nafratein
seene mein nafratein
keh do ke ab na tadpen
haaye
dil ki hasratein
haaye
dil ki hasratein
duniya ki nigaahon mein
kahin ham na aa jaayen
rone ko to aa gayi hain
kaali ghataayein
ummeedon se keh do

keh do ke looti duniya meri
aa ke yahin par
aa ke yahin par
keh do ke padi maut hain
chaahat ki zameen par
hai kaun wo apni
jo is arthhi ko uthhaaye
rone ko ab to aa gayi hain
kaali ghataayein
ummeedon se keh do

keh do meri duniya ko
kyun barbaad kiya hai
kyun barbaad kiya hai
keh do meri khushiyon ko
kyun nashaad kiya hain
kyun nashaad kiya hain
haalat ko meri dekh ke
na nain bhar aayen
rone ko ab to aa gayi hain
kaali ghataayein
ummeedon se keh do

उम्मीदों से कह दो
के न आंसू बहायें
रोने को अब तो आ गयी हैं
काली घटाएँ
उम्मीदों से कह दो

कह दो के अब न मचलें
सीने में नफरतें
सीने में नफरतें
कह दो के अब न तडपें
हाये
दिल की हसरतें
हाये
दिल की हसरतें
दुनिया की निगाहों में कहीं
हम न आ जाएँ
रोने को अब तो आ गयी हैं
काली घटाएँ
उम्मीदों से कह दो

कह दो के लुटी दुनिया मेरी
आ के यहीं पर
आ के यहीं पर
कह दो के पड़ी मौत हैं
चाहत की ज़मीन पर
हैं कौन वो अपनी
जो इस अर्थी को उठाए
रोने को अब तो आ गयी हैं
काली घटाएँ
उम्मीदों से कह दो

कह दो मेरी दुनिया को
क्यूँ बर्बाद किया हैं
क्यूँ बर्बाद किया हैं
कह दो मेरी खुशियों को
क्यूँ नाशाद किया हैं
क्यूँ नाशाद किया हैं
हालत को मेरी देख के
न नैन भर आये
रोने को अब तो आ गयी हैं
काली घटाएँ
उम्मीदों से कह दो

Blog Day :

4300 Post No. : 15562

Today (26 april 2020) is the 4300th day for the blog.

This date happens to be Akshay Tritiya.

According to a whatsapp message shared in our WA group, it is on this day that Satyug and Treta Yug started. Parshuram, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu, appeared on earth on this day. The gates pf Badrinath open today. River Ganga , as a result of Bhagirath’s tapasya, arrived on earth on this day. The war of Mahabharat ended today and with that the Dwapar yug came to an end.

What an important day our 4300th day in the blog has turned out to be. 🙂 Is it a coincidence ? People who are familiar with the various incidents involving the blog will know that some higher forces are guiding the blog and we are just the means.

For instance, when I look back at the beginning of the blog, I realise that the blog was started on 19 july 2008 which was important from the point of view of Indian calendars as well as Western calender. That date was the beginning of the month of Saawan, a month that is perhaps the biggest source of inspiration for Hindi movie songs. And that day happened to be the 201st day of the calendar year !

4300 days is a century day alright, but what can I write on this occasion. My creative juices do not flow as much as they did one decade back and so I was quite at a loss for ideas.

Then I thought of a far-fetched idea. Today is 4300th day after the blog started. Likewise there was a date that precedes the beginning of the blog by 4300 days. What date was that ? What was I doing on that day ?

My calculation shows that the 4300th day prior to 19 july 2008 gives us the date of 10 October 1996. It was Thursday, Ashwin , Krishn trayodashi, the day of Masik Shivratri, which is observed every month on Chaturdashi Tithi during Krishna Paksha, which fell on this date.

Where was I on that day ? I was at Hubli. I had spent two years one month at Hubli and I was on the verge of being transferred. To the best of my knowledge, my transfer order was not issued by this date. It was issued a few days later and I was transferred to Secunderabad.

Did any important event happen on that day ? On checking, I find that Australian cricket team has arrived India those days and they played a solitary test. This one off test was played in New Delhi and it started on this day, viz 10 october 1996 !

Guess what was the result ! India won the test in four days, winning by 7 wickets.

When I look back at those days, i find that my postings in those parts of the country had some interesting results on the polity of the nation. When I was allotted that zone of South Central Railway, no one in India even thought that a South Indian could ever be Indian PM. My posting in those parts changed all that.

My first posting was in Andhra Pradesh followed by Marathwada (Nizam area). The next general election saw Narsimha Rao, belonging to the same parts becoming PM of the nation. No one can deny that this event, which was a big freak event in Indian history changed the fate of India for the better.

My next posting was to Hubli. To make matters doubly interesting, the next general election saw H D Devegowda of Karnataka becoming the PM of India !

PM ship was not the only thing I was causing to happen. Cricket in those parts also saw reaching its zenith. Azharuddin of Hyderabad became Cricket captain of India and remained so for one decade.

After I joined at Hubli, Karnataka became cricketing powerhouse of India.

Take this test, that began on 10 october 1996 for example. There were as many as five Karnataka players in the playing XI. Four out of five bowlers were from Karnakata and together they claimed 16 out of 20 Australian wickets to fall.

The five Karnataka players who played in this test team were Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid, Venkatesh Prasad, Sunil Joshi and David Johnson.

While Kumble had made his debut six years ago, other four had made their debuts in 1996 itself. David Johnson in fact made his test debut in this test.

Please remember that Jawagal Srinath was not there in the playing XI !

In subsequent years, more Karnataka players played for India, namely Dodda Ganesh and Vijay Bhardwaj.

Having done my bit for Karnataka cricket, I went back to Hyderabad. As soon as I got posted there, VVS Laxman of Hyderabad made his test debut in November 1996. 🙂 Forget V V S Laxman, I ensured that even a mediocre player called Noel David got to play for India. 🙂

All these players may thank me later. I am in no hurry to get thanked. 🙂 Ye to mera farz thha.

Enough of those old memories. Let us now round up the discussion with a song.

While looking for a song to go with this writeup, I came across a song that was quite popular those days, though I never became aware of its details. Just now, I have become aware that this iconic song is from “Munimjee”(1972). This movie, produced and directed by Jugal Kishore for Jugal Kishore Productions, Bombay had Yogita Bali, Anil Dhawan, Ramesh Deo, Jayshree T, Junior Mehmood, Nazeer Hussain, Chandrashekhar, Maruti, Leela Mishra, R Wasti, Shahgul, Mohan Sherry, Ranjan, Narbad Shankar, Tulsi, James Bond Julian, Sudesh, Jagdeesh Shrotia, Deepak Thakur, Ratan Gaurang, Amrit Mahendra, Naginder, child artist Master Mohit, Parween Kotak, Nawal Kishore, Jameel, Saleem, Ali Raza, Balchand, Ravi, baby Manisha etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered. The song under discussion is definitely the only reason why this movie is remembered. Personally I only remembered the song, I was not even aware of the movie. 🙂

The sensuous song is picturised on Jayshree T and a sadly miscast Ramesh Deo as a frolicking in water song.

The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Lyrics of this song were supposedly penned jointly by Hasrat Jaipuri and Neeraj. This lyrics appears to be the work of Neeraj to me, though.

Usha Khanna is the music director.
