– 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.

“Jung Aur Aman”(1968) was directed by Nanubhai Bhatt for Metro Movie Production, Bombay. This movie had Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Jayant, Nadira, Mohan Choti, Krishna Kumari, Rajen Haksar, Murad etc in it.

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

Here is the second song from “Jung Aur Aman”(1968) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kohli.

The song is picturised as a dancing under duress genre of song where Dara Singh is tied at a stake and Mumtaz has to dance to save his life. So this song is picturised under circumstances similar to “Basanti in kutton ke aage mat naachna” circumstance in “Sholay” (1975). 🙂


Song-Mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere (Jung aur Aman)(1968) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-G S Kohli

Lyrics

mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere
par ishq to rusva na hoga
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere
hum ne to kabhi socha hi nahin ee ee
hum ne to kabhi socha hi nahin
anjaam hamaara kya hoga
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere
par ishq to rusva na hoga
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere

mere humdum yahaan o o o
mere humdum yahaan
do dilon ki jubaan
laakh samjhaao koi samajhta nahin
ishq hai gar khata o o o
ishq hai gar khata
jurm hai gar wafa
to bhala kaun ye jurm karta nahin
ye khata hamne ki
haan wafa hamne ki
de de sazaa ham sajaavaar hain
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere
par ishq to rusva na hoga
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere

mere khwaabon mein to o o
mere khwaabon mein to
roz aate thhe tum
aaj kismat se deedaar bhi ho gaya
aaj hai saamne o o o
aaj hai samne
phir se jalva wohi
jo dekha ke jhalak thha kahin kho gaya
ab to nikle sanam
tere kadmom mein dam
is haseen maut ke hum talabgaar hain
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere
par ishq to rusva na hoga
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere
hum ne to kabhi socha hi nahin ee ee
hum ne to kabhi socha hi nahin
anjaam hamaara kya hoga
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere
par ishq to rusva na hoga
mar jaayenge chaahne waale tere

Though most Hindi movies are based on native themes, often drawn from mythology, folk tales, history, contemporary day to day life etc, there have been movies based on non Indian topics as well.

Tarzan for some reason has been a very popular non Indian character that gets covered in Hindi movies quite often.

That is not all, it often gets combined with some other unrelated characters/ topics as well. For instance, we have movies that combine Tarzan with characters from enirely different locations, viz “Tarzan and Kingkong”, “Tarzan in Fairyland”, “Tarzan comes to Delhi”, “Tarzan and Captain Kishore” etc.

That is not all. Tarzan, an early 19th century character finds himself pitted against characters/ items separated in time by hundreds and even thousands of years. For instance “Tarzan and Delilah”, “”Tarzan and Hercules,” “Tarzan aur Jaadui Chiraag” etc.

1960s was a decade when Hindi B grade movie makers took particular fancy to Tarzan and made most of the above Tarzan movies. There were two Tarzan movies in 1963 and three each in 1964, 1965 and 1966, one each in 1968, 1969 and 1970. 15 Tarzan movies in one decade !

Here is a song from a Tarzan movie called “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). How Tarzan dwelling in Jungles of Africa meets American or European Rockets, only the moviemakers can tell. This 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 songs in it. One song has been covered in the past. While covering that song, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, provided the story of the movie. It goes like this :

Professor Anil sets up his Lab to do research on rockets, in a Jungle to keep it a secret. His daughter Mala was looking after him. One day Mala is saved from a Tiger by the king of the Jungle Tarzan and as a duty, she immediately falls in his love. One day the king and queen of the jungle tribe come to meet the professor. The king has a tumour in his neck. The Professor treats him successfully and the king promises him full cooperation and protection. This is, however not liked by the King’s advisor Niranjan.

After few days, Niranjan kidnaps Mala and blackmails the professor to give him the secret formula to make such rockets which will take the man to the Moon. Tarzan arrives and in a fight rescues Mala.

Niranjan is very angry and he puts a fire to the Professor’s laboratory and in that fire all his secret formulae and the Rocket prototype is burnt down. Tarzan throws Niranjan into the same fire.

The professor decides to return to the City, but Mala chooses to remain with Tarzan in the Jungle.(Jungle mein mangal).

Here is another song from “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and chorus. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

This song is a catchy and hummable song. One would imagine this to be a club dance song, rather than a song from a Tarzan movie. But that is how it is.

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


Song-Hum tumko mana rahe hain (Rocket Tarzan)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Robin Bannerji
Chorus

Lyrics

lalalala
lala
lalalala

hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi zaalim
hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain

ye bekaraar dil hi
meri to zindagi hai
manzil mujhe milegi
dil ko mere yaqeen hai
?? hoga ik din ye sab zamaana
hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi zaalim
hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain

kab tak juda rahenge
yoon manzilon se rahe
kab tak rahengi tanha
yoon aarzu ki baahen
raahon ki mushkilon ko
ik din hai sar jhukaana

hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi jalim hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain

“Tarzan and Kingkong”(1965) was directed by A Shamsheer for Amrit Kala Mandir, Bombay. the movie had Randhawa, Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Shyam Kumar, Bela Bose, Rani, Heera Saawant, Rajen Kapoor, Bhagwan, Roopesh Kumar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Tarzan and Kingkong”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

The song is picturised as a rajdarbaar dance song. I am unable to identify the daner. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. One can identify Shyam Kumar and Bhagwan among the audience.


Song-Dil toone kehna maana (Tarzan aur Kingkong)(1965) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Robin Bannerji

Lyrics

dil toone kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ka
haay kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana

bedardi baalma khudgarzi
bedardi baalma khudgarzi
main samjhoon main jaanoon re teri marji
main samjhoon main jaanoon re teri marji
haay pahle churaaye jiyaa phir tadpaaye
bairi badala chukaaye kaise mere ehsaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ka
haay kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana

jaa julmi dekh li teri yaari
jaa julmi dehk li teri yaari
o chhaliyaa hai jhoothi ye dildaari
o chhaliyaa hai jhoothi ye dildaari
are ankhiyaan ji waade kare aankhe beisraaye
haay koi thikaana nahin jis beimaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ki
haay re kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana aa aa

There are some very special memories related to this song. Memories of certain flights of fancy, associated with the expressions and emotions contained here in.

Greetings to Usha Khanna ji, on her 78th birthday today (7th October). It is sixty years now that she made her debut as a music director, way back in 1959 – ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, a film by Filmalya’s Sashadher Mukherjee. She recounts with a glee now, but then she was very nervous. Of course, just seventeen, recently out of school, and so miraculously given a break for a big name Shammi Kapoor starrer film. The first song recorded was “Megha Re Boley. . .”.  She walked into the recording studio with Sonik, who was the arranger for that film. She recalls that some musicians actually whistled at her as she made her way toward the group. And then Sonik told them that she is the music director. Quite a silence of disbelief followed.

Her nervousness was heightened by the fact that she would be directing Rafi Sb for her first song. The rehearsals and the recordings happened. Then at the end of the recording Rafi Sb asked her whether the song was recorded to her satisfaction. She recounts that she was too dazed and overcome by just his presence, and that she stammered in agreement. Then Rafi Sb told her – you are the music director. No matter who the singer is, but you are the boss. Even if I make a mistake, then you should correct me. Usha Khanna says that she was forever in Rafi Sb’s debt for giving her that encouragement and that advise.

More than 4 decades of active career and about 200 films in her portfolio, there are many a memorable songs and melodies that she has created – one of those music directors who would make you hear again. Ah, this one! Usha Khanna? Wow.

Listening to her music, one feels a lot of similarity with OP Nayyar. Of course that was the era that Nayyar Sb ruled with his rhythmic melodies, and other music directors would try to create music inspired by him. So Usha Khanna was also influenced by that style, but then she is not limited to style alone. There is definitely a lot of her own creativity that has gone into her work, else she would not have survived in this industry for four decades. And that too, being of a gender that generally is not associated with the work of a music director. The earlier names we can think of – Jaddan Bai, Bibbo, Saraswati Devi – all names from 1930s and 40s, when the classical music was the forte, and these ladies were trained and grounded in the classical mould.

Not Usha Khanna. She in fact, has no formal training in music. Her father, Manohar Lal Khanna, a lyricist active in the industry from late 1940s to 1960s, was her segue into music. He would write the lyrics and she would informally compose tunes for his songs at home. It was a creative spark and something special about her melodies that capture attention of her fathers industry friends like OP Nayyar and Indeewar. One thing led to another, and she was placed before Sashadher Mukherjee for an interview. The conversation started uncomfortably with singing, and ended very comfortably with music direction. S Mukherji, impressed with her tenacity and consistency (he had asked her to create two new tunes and present to him every day, for a year – think about doing that!!) gave her the first break with ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, and followed it up with ‘Hum Hindustani’ (1960). After these two films, Usha was quite much on her way. That she was able to sustain her standing in the industry for four decades, speaks volumes about her talent and her approach. Might we also notice that contemporaneous to her, and subsequently, we do not hear of any other lady music director in the industry whose performance has left a mark on the music history of Indian cinema.

Ah yes, about the flights of fancy that I mentioned about, in the first para. Regulars are aware that this song forms a part of a tandem pair. The accompanying song is the hit sung by Mukesh – “Barkha Rani, Zara Jam Ke Barso”. Yes of course, that is the better known and the more popular song in comparison. However, this rendition by Suman Kalynapur is no less pleasant, alluring and engaging. Rather more so. So when this film was released, the teenager in me was still at school. And as with a boy’s fancies at that age, of course, I do not have to put it in words. Suffice to say that right from the time I heard these two songs for the first time, my liking has always been for the Suman Kalyanpur version. The fancy connected with the Mukesh song is that there would be a charming princess for whom the boy in me would sing this song. However, the fancy associated with the Suman Kalyanpur song is that there would be charming beautiful princess who would be singing this song for me. That appealed so much more to me, that my flight of fancy those days was someone singing this song for me. Aaye haaye – the heart still takes a swing at this thought. 🙂

Quick summary – the film is ‘Sabak’ from 1973, produced and directed by Jugal Kishore, songs written by Sawan Kumar and Hasrat Jaipuri, and music by Usha Khanna. The star cast of this film is listed as Shatrughan Sinha, Poonam, Jaishri T, Jugal Kishore, Ranjan, KN Singh, Nazeer Hussain, Master Satyajeet, Chandrashekhar, Brahmchari, Hercules, Mumtaz Begum, Ramesh Dev, Seema, Rajnibala, Maruti, Rajpal, Kishan Kaul, Ved Sharma, Rajan Kapoor, Moolchand, Bholanath, Manohar, Jerry, Omi Chopra, Uma Dutt, Pritam Kumar, Raj Verma, Kishan Billa, and Sundar Singh.

Once again, wishing Usha ji a very happy birthday and praying for many more healthy and comfortable returns of this day.

Ah yes, the lyrics of this song have been sent in by our dear Prakashchandra ji.

“Shankar Shambhu”(1976) was directed by Chaand for A K Movies Bombay. The movie had Feroz Khan, Vinod Khanna, Sulakshana Pandit, Bindu, Jagdeep, Ajeet, Anwar Hussain, Suhir, Sulochana, Jayshree T, Shantanu, Jankidas, Viju Khote, Kishore Sinha etc with guest appearances by Pradeep Kumar and Lalita Pawar.

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

Here is the third song from “Shankar Shambhu”(1976) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a mujra song on Bindu and Vinod Khanna.

It appears to be a rare song in the sense that it is one of rare occasions when Sahir Ludhianvi must have penned lyrics for Kalyanji Anandji.

This song appears to be a forerunner of the “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”(1978) mujra song “Salaam e ishq meri jaan zara kubool kar le”.


Song-Mera dil churaa kar na aankhen chura (Shankar Shambhu)(1976) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura
mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura
sab kahenge tujhe bewafa bewafa
bewafa bewafa
dekh dil ko laga kar na dena daga
dekh dil ko laga kar na dena daga
sab kahenge tujhe bewafa bewafa
bewafa bewafa
mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura

hamne de di hai tujhko jubaan
ho hamne de di hai tujhko jubaan
tere kadmon mein niklegi jaan aan
tere kadmon mein niklegi jaan
dil ka naazuk sa hai ye aayina
dil ka naazuk sa hai ye aayina
tod dena na ae meharbaan aan
tod dena na ae meharbaan
ban ke toota agar silsila silsila
ban ke toota agar silsila silsila
sab kahenge tujhe bewafa bewafa
bewafa bewafa
mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura

gair ke ghar na rakhna kadam
ho gair ke ghar na rakhna kadam
ye sitam sah na paayenge hum m
ye sitam sah na paayenge hum
toone gar hamko dhokha diya
toone gar hamko dhokha diya
zahar kha lenge teri kasam m
zahar kha lenge teri kasam
jab janaaza uthha pyaar ka pyaar ka
jab janaaza uthha pyaar ka pyaar ka
sab kahenge tujhe bewafa bewafa
bewafa bewafa
mera dil chura kar na aankhen chura

Missing Films of 1960s – 109
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s film is ‘Night In Calcutta’ from 1970, produced under the banner of Mahendra Productions, Bombay. Given that it is a 1970 film, and looking at the list of songs, I am surprised this film did not make it here earlier. The lead pair in this film is Sanjeev Kumar and Simmi. By the time this film was released in 1970, both actors had comfortably settled into their careers. Sanjeev, having made his debut in 1960, had 10 years behind him, mostly in B/C grade cinema. 1971 was a year ahead when he would get recognition and national award with his portrayal in the film ‘Dastak’. Simi Garewal, had made her debut in 1962, with the English film ‘Tarzan Goes To India’ opposite to Feroze Khan, also had a good eight years behind her, with a mix of films, but mostly second female lead or a character role, but surely having worked with luminary directors of Indian cinema – Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Mehboob Khan, Raj Kapoor and Raj Khosla. ‘Siddhartha’, directed by Conrad Rooks – a definitive role as a courtesan, was still two years hence, in 1972.

Besides the lead pair, the rest of the cast is listed as Jaishri Talpade, Jagdev, Bhagwan, Master Sachin, Baby Neeta, Amrit Mahendra, Satyendra Kumar, Neelam, Vimal Joshi, Peter, Jai Singh, Samson, R Gaurang, Aasi, Ravi Khanna, Dev Kumar, Dhanraj, Jyoti Kiran, and Poonam More. Amrit Mahendra is also the producer and director of this film.

Four songs are listed for this film, all from the pen of Asad Bhopali. The music direction is by Usha Khanna. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. The song is in memory from the radio listening days. I was searching for the video of this film and the song, but seems it is not available currently. I have some memory that probably I have seen this film on TV long back. However, I am not able to recall anything about the plot and the storyline. I request other knowledgeable readers who may have seen this film (and have better recall than me 🙂 ), to please add more info about this film and the song.

Maybe three more to go. 🙂

[Ed Note: Our dear Prakash ji has brought to my notice that this song, as per Geet Kosh, appears twice in the film, and so it is a multi part song. In the second part, one stanza is different. The link for the part 2 of this song is now updated below. The lyrics for the second stanza which is different, are also appended below.]

Missing Films of 1960s – 107
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film that is being introduced today is ‘Lav Kush’ from 1967. It was a time when mythological and religious films were still a draw – a draw enough for producers to continue producing this genre of films. It was a crop of artists, producers and financiers who held sway in the decades from the early years of Indian cinema, till maybe 1980s. Beyond that, once that crop withered away – passing away, retiring, or just plain fatigue, this genre of films has seen only a downward slide.

The film is produced by Basant Pictures. Regulars will recall that Basant Pictures is an off shoot of the Wadia Movietone, and both these production banners have witnessed great success in the 1940s and 1950s – Wadia with their stunt films (mostly starring Nadia), and Basant with their religious and social offerings.

The film is directed by SN Tripathi; ah yes, the same person who is also the music director. The cast of actors reads like Jaishri Gadkar, Aseem Kumar, Sheel Kumar, Bela Bose, Bablu, SN Tripathi, Chitra, Dalpat, BM Vyas, Hari Shukla, Bhagwan Sinha, RC Pandey, and Lalita Desai. The film has seven songs listed, and all the seven are penned by songwriter Saraswati Kumar Deepak.1

The song is a dance song in the royal court. The time of narrative is when Lord Ram has safely returned to Ayodhya, He has been crowned as the king, and the Ram Rajya is installed. Things seem to be settling down and moving smoothly. At this juncture, it becomes known that Sita is expecting and should become a mother soon.

This song is played at this time, when a court full of ladies marking this celebration with their good wishes blessings. The lead dancer in this song is Bela Bose. Interesting to note that Bela Bose is known for the ‘other’ types of dances. However, this dance – cast in a combination of semi classical plus folk steps – is no less impressive.

Maybe 5, or 6 films more to go for the 1960s list. Hopefully soon. 🙂

Missing Films of 1960s – 101
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And yet, once again, another melodious and enchanting song. And once again, from a film that one has not heard anything about. The film is ‘Surya Devta’ from 1969 – as obscure as it can get. I have not heard of this film or its songs, before finding them in the Geet Kosh.

The film is produced by Alice Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Sharad Desai. The cast of actors is listed as Nirupa Roy, Ashish Kumar, Manimala, Sapru, Jeevan, Shekhar, Amrit Patel, Sarita Khatau, P Kailash, Sarita Devi, Shukla, Dalpat, Bhoj Kumar, and Kapoor.

The film has six songs listed. The lyrics are written by two poets – Madan and Bharat Vyas. Today’s song is written by Madan. The music is composed by Avinash Vyas. The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur.

As I am preparing this post, and checking the genre categories, I realize that this song is an opposite genre of the “Please Don’t Go” type songs. Something like “Please Let Me Go” song. 🙂 I can think of one or two other such songs.

But what a lovely melodious composition, and what a lovely rendering by Suman Kalyanpur. A song that surely should have been more heard and more known.

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Jaane De, O Bedardi Jaane De  (Surya Devta) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Madan, MD – Avinash Vyas

 

Lyrics

jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
morey maathe ki bindiya bikhar gai re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

rok ke meri raah
naam badnaam na kar mere pyaar ka
rok ke meri raah
naam badnaam na kar mere pyaar ka
chaaron taraf pehra hai sainyyaan
is bairi sansaar ka
ab milne ki ghadiyaan guzar gayin re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

door rahoongi tan se sainyyaan
mann to hai tere paas re
door rahoongi tan se sainyyaan
mann to hai tere paas re
janam janam se hoon main teri
kar mujh pe vishwaas re
more kajre ki kor bigad gayi re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
morey maathe ki bindiya bikhar gai re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

जाने दे
ओ ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
ओ ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
मेरी माथे की बिंदिया बिखर गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

रोक के मेरी राह
नाम बदनाम ना कर मेरे प्यार का
रोक के मेरी राह
नाम बदनाम ना कर मेरे प्यार का
चारों तरफ पहरा हैं सैंय्या
इस बैरी संसार का
अब मिलने की घड़ियाँ गुज़र गईं रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

दूर रहूँगी तन से सैंय्या
मन तो है तेरे पास रे
दूर रहूँगी तन से सैंय्या
मन तो है तेरे पास रे
जनम जनम से हूँ मैं तेरी
कर मुझ पे विश्वास रे
मोरे कजरे को कोर बिगड़ गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
मेरी माथे की बिंदिया बिखर गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
