Missing Films of 1960s – 103
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film that we bring on board today is ‘Sati Sulochana’ from 1969. One more film that is rarely heard about, although the video of this film is available. And once again, lovely songs that have not been explored. The sound of this song seems like it was heard on the radio, but that was a long time back.

The music is by SN Tripathi, who incidentally has also directed this film. The film is produced under the banner of SA Films, Bombay. The star cast includes Prithviraj, Anita Dutt, Prem Nath, Raj Kumar, Bipin Gupta, Kanan Kaushal, Sundar, Ram Singh, and Ram Mohan etc.

The story of Sati Sulochana is part of the history of Ramayan.  Sulochana is the daughter of Sheshnaag, the king of serpents. She is married to Meghnaad, the son of Raavan. Meghnaad is also known as Indrajit, for he had once vanquished Lord Indra and captured many sophisticated weapons from him. In the narrative of Ramayan, Sulochana is described as a brave lady who is very supportive of her husband. Eventually, when her husband is killed in the battle with Lakshman, she makes a decision to immolate herself on his pyre.

This story has been made into films on many occasions. The first one on record is the silent film ‘Sati Sulochana’ in 1921. Then this film was produced in Kannada, in 1934, as the first talkie film in Kannada language. In 1935, a Hindi film was also released by this name, under the production banner of Godavari Cinetone. In 1961, this tale was also told in a Telegu film starring NT Ramarao. And then in 1969, we have this Hindi production again.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs of this film. Music is from the mind of SN Tripathi. The songs have been written by Bharat Vyas and BD Mishra. This song is from the pen of Bharat Vyas.  The singing voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. On screen, it appears as if the leading lady and one of two of her friends are lip syncing the same playback singing.

The song is picturized as a group dance song, in which the leading lady is being teased by her friends, asking her who is the one who comes into your dreams. The song is a lively exchange between the lady and her sahelis. On screen, I am not able to identify with certainty, the lady who leads the song. Is she Kanan Kaushal? I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please help identify her.

Enjoy this lovely lilting melody, one of those songs that should have been more popular.

 

Song – Kaun Tere Sapnon Mein Aata  (Sati Sulochana) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – SN Tripathi
Chorus

Lyrics

aaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaaa
aaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaaa

kaun tere sapnon mein aata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata
aa ke nainon mein muskaata
bataao na bataao
hum ko ye bataao
jud gaya kis se ye naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

hato ri sapne ki na boloon
bhed yeh mann ka na kholoon
jaao ri sakhi jaao
mujhe na yun sataao
khel ye mann ko na bhaata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

main to soi thi
neend mein khoi thi
chup ke se koi aa gaya
main to soi thi
neend mein khoi thi
chup ke se koi aa gaya
megh varan tha
kanak rang tha
mere jeevan mein samaa gaya
chhup ke kaanon mein kuchh bola
haule se ghunghat pat khola
akhiaan ghabraai
main to sharmaai
aage ab kuchh na kaha jaata
koi tere sapnon mein aata

veer purush tha
kandhe dhanush tha
mukh pe tej samaaya
veer purush tha
kandhe dhanush tha
mukh pe tej samaaya
jaan nahin
pehchaan nahin koi
phir bhi wo mann ko bhaaya
preet meri muskaai hai
pooja meri rang laai hai
chhudaaye se na chhoote
tode to nahin toote
janm janmaantar ka naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

kaun tere sapnon mein aata
aa ke nainon mein muskaata
bataao na bataao
hum ko ye bataao
jud gaya kis se ye naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

आss आssssss
आsss आsss आssss
आss आssssss
आsss आsss आssss

कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
आ के नैनों में मुस्काता
बताओ ना बताओ
हम को ये बताओ
जुड़ गया किस से ये नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

हटो री सपने की ना बोलूँ
भेद ये मन का ना खोलूँ
जाओ री सखी जाओ
मुझे ना यूं सताओ
खेल ये मन को ना भाता’
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

मैं तो सोई थी
नींद में खोई थी
चुपके से कोई आ गया
मैं तो सोई थी
नींद में खोई थी
चुपके से कोई आ गया
मेघ वरण था
कनक रंग था
मेरे जीवन में समा गया
छुप के कानों में कुछ बोला
हौले से घूँघट पट खोला
अखियाँ घबराईं
मैं तो शरमाई
आगे अब कुछ ना कहा जाता
कोई तेरे सपनों में आता

वीर पुरुष था
कांधे धनुष था
मुख पे तेज समाया
वीर पुरुष था
कांधे धनुष था
मुख पे तेज समाया
जान नहीं
पहचान नहीं कोई
फिर भी वो मन को भाया
प्रीत मेरी मुसकाई है
पूजा मेरी रंग लाई है
छुड़ाए से ना छूटे
तोड़े तो नहीं टूटे
जन्म जन्मांतर का नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
आ के नैनों में मुस्काता
बताओ ना बताओ
हम को ये बताओ
जुड़ गया किस से ये नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

Missing Films of 1960s – 99
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK wow, we are at 99 for this series today. 🙂

The surprising thing is that this film is not yet on the blog. It is not obscure, it is not unfamiliar, it is not starring unfamiliar faces, it does not contain unfamiliar or unheard songs, and the songs are good to be heard. So then, how come?

Well, we come to it today. The film we are bringing on today is ‘Shart’ from 1969. Of course, its namesake from 1954 has legendary music and songs. The 1969 ‘Shart’ does not compare to the quality of music of the earlier one. But still, given the era we were in during late 1960s, we are still talking of primary rated artists who came together for this song. In their own right, these artists had already established themselves in the industry.

Music is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The lyrics are written by Anand Bakshi. And the singer of this song is Asha Bhosle. The lead pair in this film is Mumtaz and Sanjay (later known by the name Sanjay Khan). By 1969, both had made their presence felt on the box office. Mumtaz, having struggled thru from being a junior artist and then playing many a C grade films, had by this time graduated to A and B class cinema. Sanjay, being the younger brother of Feroze Khan already had a head start – appearing in big banner films opposite to top line leading ladies already.

The film was produced under the banner of Shankar Movies, Bombay, and was directed by Kewal Mishra. The star cast of this film, in addition to the lead pair mentioned above, is listed as Kumud Chhugani, Rajendra Nath, KN Singh, Ramesh Dev, Rajan Haksar, Heeralal, Shammi, Meena Rai, Murad, Ravikant, Tuntun, Ravi Khanna, and Hercules.

I do not readily recall the storyline. The song is group dance song, with Mumtaz as the lead dancer and a group of sahelis supporting her. We catch a glimpse of Ramesh Deo in the beginning of the clip. And Sanjay is seen watching this dance performance. The peculiar thing about this song is that in between we see that the lead dancer is switched, and we see another lady leading the dance, wearing exactly the same attire as Mumtaz. I request our circle of knowledgeable readers to please help identify this other lady.

It seems that the leading man, Sanjay, is equally perplexed. There is a look of baffled curiosity on his face, as he tries to figure out how the lady is being switched, as the song progresses. From a distance, it cannot be clearly made out, but in closer shots, there definitely is a switching of lead performer happening. Again, request is for those who may have seen this film, to please add information to explain this situation.

The song itself is a lovely Asha rendition, and the performance by Mumtaz is simply too good. Very energetic and very involved with the scene, she is of course the star attraction in this clip.

And after this post – we have the century post of this series coming up. Watch this space for more. 🙂 🙂

Colorful greetings to all readers and friends. May this festival of colors, bring happiness and good health, to yourself, and to everyone you know. 🙂  May these colors multiply and spread good cheer across every day in the calendar.

Happy Holi to all.

On this blog, we are celebrating the eleventh iteration of this festival. Statistics is one thing – apart from that, the wonderful fact is that the songs of Holi in Hindi films, seem like a supply with no end. Of course yes, when the films and their directors continue to add more songs celebrating this festival every year.

I bring to your attention, this wonderfully fabulous song of the spirit of Holi, from a really very recent film – ‘Ye Jawaani Hai Deewaani’ from 2013. This film was one of the most successful films of that year, and I am sure you must be aware of it, even though it is possible that your tastes and preferences are rooted in the 1940s and 50s which is the gold standard for melody and music in Hindi films. However, that does not mean that music of the decades after the golden . . . – well it does deserve credit. It does catch your attention, and the music and songs still grow into your mind to become darling memories.

Although I have myself not been paying much attention and time to the music of the current years. But quite decidedly, along comes a film with a blast of music that forcefully captures your attention, and insists on becoming part of your list of favorites. Something quite of this sort happened with this 2013 film, for me. And it started very much with this song.

After a long time, I must say, that I have encountered a song of this festival, that simply takes your breath away. The spirit of celebration, and all the emotions that uniquely make this festival what it is – is not so totally and carefully represented every time. But surely, this song does it.

There is color, lots and lots of it.
There is water – it starts off with that.
There is cheer – for every person who is part of this song, and everyone else who may be listening and enjoying it.
There is music – yes of course.
There is dancing – goodness you must be kidding.
There is ‘bhaang’, and there is noise.
There is a large dipping pool – nay, a large dunking pool.
Oh yes, there is “छेड़ छाड़” – chhed chhaad, there is “ज़ोर ज़बरदस्ती” – zor zabardasti.
There are fair maidens running away to save themselves from being smothered with color and water.
And there are insistent and forceful young charmers who will not take ‘no’ for an answer. Or rather they do not even care what the answer is – they will force the color into your face and hair. They will chase you, and run you down, and cuddle you – and they will be more insistent, the more resistance one puts up.
There are drums.
There is singing – very loud, yes.
There is nonsense lyrics – like “लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई” – lattu padosan ki bhabhi ho gayi.
There are meaningful verses – “ज़ुल्मी ये हाजिर जवाबी हो गई. . .” – zulmi ye haazir jawaabi ho gai.
There is “नोक झोंक” – nok-jhonk – that is very verbal and very physical too.
There is humor, and there is suggestive propositioning – like “अरमानों में बेहिसाबी हो गई” – armaanon mein behisaabi ho gai.
And there is flights of fancy.
And there is uncharacteristic expressions of festivity from unexpected quarters
And there is a glimmer of surprised realizations.
The matters of heart, unexpressed, are just beneath the surface sheen.
And of course there is a shock of unexpected and amazing realizations – yes, this could surely be it.
There is joy of shared happinesses.
There is a loud cheer of good spirit.
And everything, each and every one of these ingredients put together into the mix to convince you – yayyy, it is Holi – get colored, and get wet, very wet.

Amazing, simply and truly amazing – after a long time, comes along a new sound that astonishes the mind with the honesty with which the true spirit of the festival is so sweetly captured. Needless to say it – but yes, I am quite truly floored.

I have not yet seen the complete film. I got introduced to the songs of this film over the past many months. Especially this Holi song was forcefully dumped into my notice just about a year ago, yes around the last iteration of this celebration. Enthused as I was, I could not make and present a post in time for the festival; now coming around to it after a wait of a full year. Even with this passage of time, the charm of this song has not diminished even one bit. I simply do not seem to be getting enough of this song. 🙂

The lyrics are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya and the music is by Preetam. Singing voices are of Vishal Dadlani and Shalmali Kholgade. On screen, the song is performed by Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Kalki Koechlin, Aditya Roy Kapoor and a ton of dancers. Deepika and Ranbir are so truly convincing in the complete free form enjoyment in this song. The movie makes its debut on our blog with this song.

Wishing a grand celebration of this festival today, to all friends and readers. Go out, get doused in colors, make up some fun lyrics – like “लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई” types, and sing it out at the top of the voice. It does not matter – it is Holi. Just down one glass of bhang and then blame it for everything. 😀 😀 😀

Happy Holi – – – celebrate.

अबे चशमिश

कौन चशमिश

होली है॰ ॰ ॰

इतना मज़ा
क्यों आ रहा है
तूने हवा में भांग मिलाया

इतना मज़ा
क्यों आ रहा है
तूने हवा में भांग मिलाया
दुगुना नशा
क्यों हो रहा है
आँखों से मीठा तू ने खिलाया
हो तेरी मलमल की कुर्ती गुलाबी हो गई
तू चली चाल जैसे नवाबी हो गई
तो
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

तेरी कलाई है
हाथों में आई है
मैंने मरोड़ा तो
लगती मलाई है
महंगा पड़ेगा ये
चसका मलाई का
उपवास करने में
तेरी भलाई है
हो बिंदिया तेरी महारगाबी हो गई
के अरमानों में बेहिसाबी हो गई
तेरी तो
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

क्यों नो वेकेंसी की
होठों पे गाली है
जब के तेरे दिल का
कमरा तो खाली है
मुझको पता है रे
क्या चाहता है तू
बोली भजन तेरी
नीयत क़व्वाली है
ज़ुल्मी ये हाजिर जवाबी हो गई
तू तो हर ताले की आज चाबी हो गई
ओ ओ
बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

बलम पिचकारी
जो तूने मुझे मारी
तो सीधी साड़ी छोरी शराबी हो गई
ओ जीन पहन के
जो तूने मारा ठुमका
तो लट्टू पड़ोसन की भाभी हो गई

हाँ बोले रे ज़माना खराबी हो गई

हाँ बोले रे ज़माना खराबी हो गई

“Aaina”(1974) was produced by N Selvaraja and L Duraiswamy and was directed by K Balachandar for Kalakendra Films production. The movie had Mumtaz, Rajesh Khanna, A.K.Hangal, Nirupa Roy, Rita Bhaduri, Ratan Chopra, Lalita Pawar, Jayasudha, Adil Aman, Manmohan Krishna, Anjum Savera, Vandana Rane, Yasmin, Baby Seema, Kalpana, Jagdish Raj, Polson, Madhukar, Brahmachari, Suraj, Prem Kumar, Master Paresh Kumar, Master Jaganath, Madan Puri, Suresh Chatwal, Jagdeep etc in it. This movie had Neetu Singh and Dharmendra in special appearances. The film also had Kamal Hasan in it who was also one of the dance directors of the movie.

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

Here is the fourth song from “Aaina”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

The song is picturised as a wedding ritual song where Mumtaz, playing a saheli of the bride is seen teasing the bridegroom. While I can identify a few actors seen in the picturisation (such as Nirupa Roy), I am unable to identify most of them. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

PS-Several months later, I realised that this song is a multi part song according to HFGK. The song begins as “teri dulhan badi jaadoogarni” sung by Vani Jairam. Then the part sung by Asha Bhonsle appears.

So this song basically is a multi part song.

With this, all the five songs of the movie get covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Dharma”(1973) was directed by Chaand for Kapoor Films Bombay. This “social” movie had Naaveen Nischol, Rekha, Pran, Bindu, Ajeet, Ramesh Deo, Madan Puri, Faryal, Anjali Kadam, Paro, Asit Sen, Mohan Choti, Jayshree T, Rajan Haksar, Sonia Sahni etc in it.

The lead pair, the lyricist as well as the music directors are same as that of “Saawan Bhaado”(1970), so it appears to me that the makers of this movie had signed them up hoping to replicate the success of “Saawan Bhaado”(1970).

“Dharma”(1973) had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these three songs from the movie:-

Here is the fourth and final song from “Dharma”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is a teasing song along the lines of “Saawan Bhaado”(1970) song Kaan mein jhumka chaal me thumka.

The song is sung by Rafi. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sonik Omi. Exactly the same musical team as “Saawan Bhaado”(1970). The song is picturised on the same actors as well, viz on Navin Nischol and Rekha.

I have provided the audio as well as video link of the song. There is slight variation in the lyrics of the two versions in the last stanza.

With this song, “Dharma”(1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ठ’ – ठहर ज़रा ओ जानेमन, ना हाथ लगाना जानेमन ॰ ॰ ॰

फिर तेरी याद नए गीत सुनाने आई

Yes, it is a story of every day – a song plays and memories come by. Or sometimes, memories passing thru remind of a song that is so very dear to the heart. That is all that remains now – memories and songs playing hide and seek in the dimly lit bylanes of the mind.

– – – –

The next song in this series comes from the 1976 film ‘Ladki Bholi Bhaali’. And incidentally this film is also making its debut on the blog today. That makes it three in a row today – 🙂 🙂 .

The film was directed by Ashok Roy for Mahesh Chitra, Bombay. The star cast listed for the film is Asha Sachdev, Gautam Sarin, Junior Mehmood, Ramesh Dev, Tarun Ghosh, Anita Guha, Ranveer Raj, Ram Mohan, Lalita Chatterjee, Rupali, Darshan, Krishan Duggal, Baldev Trehan, Manik Dutt, Master Devanand, Heena Kausar, Rakesh Pandey, Snehlata, Bharat Bhushan, and Dheeraj etc.

The film has music by Usha Khanna. Geet Kosh lists four songs for this film, three of which are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri. All those three songs are solos in the voice of Asha Bhosle. The fourth song, which is the song presented today, is a duet in the voice of Rafi Sb and Usha Khanna herself. And it is written by Saawan Kumar Tak.

Saawan Kumar has had a good partnership with Usha Khanna. Usha ji has given music to 11 films which have either been directed by Saawan Kumar, or he has written lyrics for them. They were married, but the matrimonial relationship did not last for long. Together they have created such popular hits like “Barkha Rani, Zara Jam Ke Barso“, “Wo Jidhar Dekh Rahe Hain, Sab Udhar Dekh Rahe Hain” (both from ‘Sabak’, 1973) “Teri Galiyon Mein Na Rakhenge Kadam. . .“, (‘Hawas’, 1974), “Sar e Mehfil Mera Imaan Beimaan Ho Gaya” (‘Ab Kya Hoga’, 1977), “Shaayad Meri Shaadi Ka Khyaal. . .“, “Zindagi Pyaar Ka Geet Hai” (both from ‘Souten’, 1983). (I am surprised that this last mentioned song is still waiting to come on board.)

Coming to today’s song, it is picturized on Rakesh Pandey and Asha Sachdev Snehlata, with Gautam Sarin also present in the scene and also lip-syncing some lines. I have not yet seen the film, and so the situation is not clear to me. I request other friends and readers who may have seen this film, to add some background information about the situation in this song.

Song – Thehar Zara O Jaan e mann  (Ladki Bholi Bhaali) (1976) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Usha Khanna, Lyrics – Saawan Kumar Tak, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

thehar zara o jaan e mann

27th August – a traveling tour, a distant land, and an unexpected loss; a loss that is as numbing even today, as shattering as it was when it happened then. 1976, and a hotel in Detroit, USA. The soul of the voice and the voice of the soul – both were stilled forever. A life of just 53 years. And a singing career that was wonderfully placed. Both cut short by the matters of the heart – matters that could not be set right.

Today, we remember Mukesh, through his songs, in an effort to re-live the times. And to enjoy the listening pleasure that this voice still continues to be forty two years after his departure.

Mahesh ji’s wonderful selection “Yahaan Radha Kund Hai Shyam Kund Hai” from an obscure film ‘Subhash Chandra’ has already posted earlier in the day today. Here is one more song in the memory of this soulful voice.

The film is ‘Aayega Aanewaala’ from 1967. This film is produced and directed by Kewal Misra for his home company, Kewal Productions, Bombay. The list of actors reads as follows – Kumkum, Sanjeev Kumar, Sabita Chatterjee, Ram Mohan, Kundan, Rajan Haksar, Chaman Puri, Uma Khosla, Ravi Khanna, Bela Bose, Khairati, and Agha.

There are six songs in this film, all written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and the music is composed by the duo of Sapan Jagmohan. One song of this film has already been posted here. This is the second song coming on board.

The filming location for this song is Simla (in Himachal Pradesh) – a very scenic and a popular vacation resort, right from the pre-independence days. The song is picturized as what appears to be a picnic song. Sanjeev Kumrar is wooing and teasing Kum Kum, telling her that he is a seasoned player, and that he is not easily perturbed.

The song is a lively, playful song. In the voice of Mukesh, it becomes more endearing. The voice suits all types of emotions – even naughty playfulness. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Hum Wo Nahin Jo Aapke Kadmon Mein Dil Ko Rakh Den (Aayega Aanewaala) (1967) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
teri nazar ka raaz hain hum
bade zamaana saaz hain hum
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
badi haseen hain ye adaayen
kaho hamen na aazmaayen
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum
tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum  
tumhen kasam hai maan jaao
hamen ye tewar na dikhaao
kyon ke zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

Hullo Atuldom

I think I should get over this habit of waking up late to dates. I remembered that today (14 august 2018) was Johnny Lever’s birthday and later, yesterday, around seven in the evening I remembered that 14th august is also Shammi Kapoor’s anniversary. He passed away this date in 2011. Its been seven years.

Shammi Kapoor the man with “Neeli aankhen” (bade hai dil ke kale haan yehi neeli si aankhon waale) were his eyes actually blue or were they light? The gora-chitta-banka naujawan. The dancer who, I am sure, made a number of choreographers cry by doing his own stuff to the rhythm of the songs and had audiences lapping it up. And IMHO Helen was one dancer who managed to follow the choreographer when Shammi did his own stuff on his cue during dance numbers – the last part of “ai ai ya karoon main kya suku suku”is the best example for this. He would have continued in this manner but for the death of his beloved wife Geeta Bali, post which he lost interest for a few years, and then when he returned to the screen he began looking older than his age. He played Vinod Khanna’s older brother in 1971 in “Preetam” and father two years later in “Zameer”. Leena Chandavarkar, his heroine in Preetam, looks very tiny in front of him.

His movies all had memorable songs, mostly sung by Mohd. Rafi in the 60s and later in the 70s & 80s Kishore Kumar sang a few songs filmed on Shammi. There is video on YouTube wherein Shammi talks of his friendship with Kishore Kumar which possibly began at the time of “Mem Sahib” (1956/57) but (in Shammi’s words) he got a chance to lip-sync to Kishore only in the late 70s and 80s. when I heard Shammi mention “Mem Sahib” I decided to see it on YouTube. First thing that struck me was all the actors played characters that we later generation audiences are not familiar with. Meena Kumari played a mod-girl, Shammi Kapoor a negative character and Kishore Kumar a brahmachari who is confused about the ways of the world.

Yesterday when I realised the significance of 14th august with regard to Shammi Kapoor I had a chat with our Atulji to find out if there were any Shammi song left, are we at the bottom of the barrel? He gave me a list of post 1970 movies and also mentioned “Preetam”. I remember having seen this movie made by Bhappi Sonie in the times when doordarshan was the sole source of entertainment. I remember Leena Chandavarkar was paired opposite Shammi and Helen was for Vinod Khanna. I remembered the songs were also decently good.
Today’s song is a typical Shammi Kapoor song in the sense it is sung by Mohd. Rafi with music by Shankar Jaikishan. Only odd man out here is the lyricist -Rajinder Krishan.

Remembering Shammi Kapoor with this song from 1971.

Today’s song is from an obscure film Kul kalank-45.

If one critically looks at the artistes’ mix in Hindi films from Talkie era beginning upto 1947, one would find that, if not a majority, a sizable number was of Muslim community. The 15 % section of Indian population was prominently present in the film world. Actors, actresses, directors, singers, Lyricists and Music directors… you name a department and they were there. In a way this community enriched the film and music by bringing Ghazals, Thumris etc into the Music and dance items like Mujra and qawalis became famous and popular part of the Hindi films.

After 1947, many Muslim artistes from almost all departments of film making migrated to Pakistan, making way for artistes who were waiting in the wings-so to say- to fill the void, in Indian film world. many Muslim artistes chose to stay in India. While many divided their families into both countries ( Rafi, Kardar, Mehboob etc), there were many who shifted Lock, stock and barrel to Pakistan.

Legends like Dilip, Meena Kumari, Mehboob, Naushad and Rafi etc stayed back and enriched the Indian film industry, beyond words. One of the major specialities of this industry was ( and is ) its Secular nature. While a team of Muslim Singer (Rafi), Muslim Lyricist (Shakeel) and a Muslim Composer (Naushad) gave us an evergreen Bhajan like “Man tadpat Hari darshan ko aaj (Baiju Baawra) “, a team of Hindu composer (CR), Hindu Lyricist (Shailendra) and a Hindu Singer ( Lata ) gave us a Devotional Naat “Duaa kar gham e dil, Khuda se duaa kar(Anarkali) “.

BOMBAY- the Mayanagari of films, attracted many aspirants from all over the country. One can understand, if those who wanted to make a successful career and become famous, flocked to Bombay, but sometimes even the famous ones with a bright career already in place, also were tempted to join this industry. Some names which come readily to mind are- Pt. Ravi Shankar, the International Sitar Maestro and a Bharat Ratna-1999. He became a Music Director and gave music to 5 films….Neechanagar and Dharti ke Lal-1946, Anuradha-60, Godaan-63 and Meera-79. The famous Sarod player Ali Akbar Khan gave music to 7 films. And then, the famous Tabla player All Rakha Khan Qureshi also had a stint in Hindi films. Today’s film Kul Kalank-45 had his music.

Ustad Allah Rakha, born as Allah Rakha Qureshi, was born in Jammu and Kashmir on 29-4-1919. He was an Indian tabla player, who popularised the art of tabla playing all over the world. Allah Rakha was born to a soldier, who later returned from the army and worked as a farmer after that to earn his bread and butter. Being the eldest of seven sons, his father did not expect him to learn music and opposed his idea of learning classical music.

Ustad Allah Rakha, as a young boy of 12 years, found the instrument fascinating while visiting his uncle in Gurdaspur. His inclination towards Indian classical music and the Performing Arts made him run away to Lahore for further learning, as he found little scope of learning the art-form in his home-town. Allah Rakha studied at the Punjab school of classical music (gharana) where he became a student of Ustad Mian Khadarbaksh Pakhawaji (Mian Quader Bakshi). He was trained to be a singer under Ustad Ashiq .

Allah Rakha was also associated to theater as he lived in Pathankot for sometime and worked for a theater company. In 1930, Allah Rakha worked at a radio station in Lahore. According to reports, he moved to Delhi after six years, in 1936, to work with All India Radio. In 1940, he moved to Bombay and worked with Pandit Ravi Shankar and again on All India Radio. He was the station’s first ever tabla solo player then. After which he even composed music for 40 Hindi films from 1943 to 1958. His first film as a MD was Mahasati Anusuya-43 and the last released film was Idd ka chaand-64. He even sang 14 songs in 7 films between 1942 to 1949

Ustad Allah Rakha had married twice. He was first married to Bavi Begum and had three sons, Zakir Hussain, Fazal Qureshi and Taufiq Qureshi and two daughters Khurshid Aulia née Qureshi and Razia. Razia served him in his later years and was like a constant companion to her father. She died after a routine cataract surgery and Allah Rakha could not cope with the shock of her death and immediately slipped into a coma and passed away within 24 hours on 3-2-2000.

Zakir Hussain is one of the most renowned tabla players of India.

Allah Rakha’s son Zakir Hussain grew up to be another legend in the country. Zakir Hussain has also been honoured with the Padma Shri in 1988 and the Padma Bhushan in 2002, by the Government of India. The honour that was bestowed upon his father by the Sangeet Natak Akademi came to him as well in 1990. Hussain has been working in films and on albums in India as well as abroad. Hussain owes his career to his father, who had made sure that he remained focused on the art-form.

Ustad Allah Rakha had established the Alla Rakha Institute of Music in Bombay in 1986 and imparted his knowledge of the instrument to all his disciples in the institute. Allah Rakha and sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar brought classical Hindustani music to Western audiences as well. He was honoured with the Padma Shri Award by the Government of India in 1977 for his contributions to elevate the reach of tabla playing as an art form across the globe. Later on, Sangeet Natak Akademi also honoured him.

Ustad Allah Rakha and sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar brought classical Hindustani music to Western audiences as well. Their partnership reached legendary heights with performances at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and the Woodstock Festival in 1969. The two performed together in a lot many festivals and elevated the respect and popularity of tabla playing as an art form. Other than Pandit Ravi Shankar, he also worked with renowned Kathak dancers like Sitara Devi and Birju Maharaj.

Ustad Allah Rakha found fans not only in India but abroad as well. Reportedly, American percussionist, the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, was his huge fan. Hart always tried to learn from him even from single visits that Ustad used to make to his country. Hart was also quoted saying, “Alla Rakha is the Einstein, the Picasso; he is the highest form of rhythmic development on this planet.”

Other than the Grateful Dead drummer, Mickey Hart, Ustad Allah Rakha inspired George Harrison from The Beatles as well. Both of them performed together for a Concert for Bangladesh in 1971. Mickey Hart also collaborated with him for Rolling Thunder in 1972. The picture we have here is of Hell’s Angels member Terry The Tramp with tabla player Ustad Alla Rakha as they were set to perform together at the Monterey International Pop Festival, June 17th, 1967. He had collaborated with many prominent rock groups.

While Ustad used to generally team up with Pandit Ravi Shankar for his performances, he once collaborated with jazz drummer Buddy Rich for an album, Rich à la Rakha in 1968. Some of his greatest works have been in the form of albums Improvisations, West Meets East, Album 3 (with Ravi Shankar, Yehudi Menuhin, Jean Pierre Rampel, Martine Gelliot), Angel (1976), Master Drummers with Zakir Hussain (1991), Tabla Duet, Chhanda Dhara (1994), Ultimate in Taal-vidya, Magnasound/OMI (1996),

The cast of film Kul Kalank-45 was Shanta Hublikar, Masood, Shehzadi, Maajid, Amirbai karnataki, Dulari, Protima Devi, W M Khan, Saroj Borkar etc etc. In this list we find names of Masood, Shehzadi and Majid, who are not well known to most people.

Masood Mohammed Ansari was born on 16-2-1921 at Lahore in a respectable family. After passing the Matriculation, he joined films with screen name Shyam, but as there were already 2 actors with that name, he retained his own name shortened to just Masood. He joined Bombay Talkies on a monthly salary, but even in one year, he did not get any role in a film, so he resigned.

He did small roles in Sitara and Gunehgar -39, but was noticed in Bahurani-40. Due to his good looks and personality, he got roles with leading ladies like Sitara, Swarnalata, Nurjehan, Mumtaz Shanti, Khurshid Jr. and Shamim. He acted in society-42,Aabroo-43,Naadan-43, Raahgir-43, Ishara-43, Nagad Narayan-43, Kul kalank-45, pujari-46, Nek parveen-46 and Bhanwar-47. he got married just before partition and migrated to Pakistan, with his family.

The other name we find is of Shehzadi. Now, there was another actress Shehzadi, who was the daughter of actress director and producer Fatima Begum and sister of Zubeida (Alam Ara) and Sultana. She had done films from 1926 to 1939 only. Zubeida and Sultana were married in 1936. She also got married and left films. Actress Shehzadi of film Kul Kalank-45 was different.

In this film she did a dance and song item with Mumtaj Ali (father of Mehmood). The song was ” Main to Delhi se dulhan laaya re “. This became a hit song. She had learned Dancing before joining films. This came handy in films. She acted in 26 films from 1941 to 1947. In film ‘ Hanso hanso,aye duniyawalon’-42, she was Gope’s Heroine.

In film Kul kalank-45, there were 11 songs. Today’s song is a duet by Ameerbai karnataki and Rafi. Mind you, in 1945, Mohd. Rafi was still a new singer. Having started only in 1944, this song was just the 7th song in his career. from his style and voice itself, one can make out that this singer was a new one. That way, this is a rare song of Rafi and a song which is not easily available.

Film Kul Kalank was re-released as ” Jeewan Chhaya ” in 1946 again. Kul Kalank-45 makes a Debut on the Blog. Listen to Rafi’s rare song.

Song-Baabu ghabraate hain (Raahgeer)(1969) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

babu ghabraate hain
babu ghabrate hain
chori chori aankhon se
chori chori aankhon se teer chalaate hain
beebi sach kehti ho
beebi sach kehti ho
chonch to hai baahar
aur ande mein rehti ho
beebi sach kahti ho

chhaila mere rangeele
dikhne mein bhole se
chakhne mein zahreele
dikhne mein gudiya ho
bholi bhaali samjhe thhe
mirchi ki pudiya ho

chale thhe gulaab lene dekho phulwaadi se
chale thhe gulaab lene dekho phulwaadi se
kaanton se ulajh baithe babu ye anaadi se
ah
pada nahin paala abhi aapka khilaadi se
tinke nikaalo beebi choron ki daadhi se
choron se rishta hai
choron se uljho jaake
banda farishta hai

umm hmm
fariste aapse hote hain aaj hi jaana
fariste aapse hote hain aaj hi jaana
zameen pe kaise huaa kahiye aapka aana
khuda ne aapko apna salaam bheja hai
mizaaj poochhne
aa haan mijaaj poochhne ko ye ghulaam bheja hai

waah
suna hai aapke rishte se chanda maama hain
khuda ke paas wahaan aapka nishaama hai
he he
kamaal karte hain
har baat boojh lete hain
biraadari ko
biraadari ko badi zaldi soongh lete hain

ye gamchha baandh ke kya haandi saaf karte hain
ham aapson ki tabeeyat ko saaf karte hain
ja tumhaare jaise bade majnu maare phirte hain
ki laila laila gali mein pukaar phirten hain

tumhi ko laila banaaya hai to jawaab nahin
kahin khuda ki tabeeyat bhi to kharaab nahi
bater jaisi do aankhen laga ke bhej diya
ya seedha kabr se waapas uthha ke bhej diya
jahaan mein aap jaisi aur koi cheez nahin
tameez seekho agar baat ki tameez nahin
tameez seekho agar baat ki tameez nahin
tameez seekho agar baat ki tameez nahin
tameez seekho agar baat ki tameez nahin
