“Naiyya”(1979) was directed by Prashant Nanda for Chanda Pictures, Bombay. And all these days I was under the impression that this movie was a Rajshree Productions movie. 🙂

The movie had Zarina Wahab, Prashant Nanda (new discovery, as they say), Baldev Khosa, Dinesh Thakur, Leela Mishra, Mohammad Mohsin (another new discovery), Jageerdaar, Dinesh Hingoo, Nandlal Sharma, c S Dubey, Shail Chaturvedi, Shivraj, Amrish Puri, Pardesi, Om Tripathi, Shankar Bhake, Manmauji, Rooplekha etc, along with guest appearances by Sulochana, Shubha Khote and Jayshree T.

I remember this movie for its music. Going by the cast as well as the music, I was under the impression that this movie was an archtypical Rajshree Production movie. It is quite a news to me that it is not so.

Two songs from the movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the third song from “Naiyya”(1979) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Yesudas and chorus. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

This extremely sweet and hummable song is picturised as a fisherman song on boats on a river on Prashant Nanda and others. This song happens to be the movie opening song as well as the theme cum title song. so one can say that this song wears many hats.

This movie had Mehtab (in title role), Sohrab Modi, Mubarak, Ulhas, ram Singh, Sapru, anil Kishore, Baby Shikha, Kamalkant, Michael Shea, Marconi, Nayampalli, Gloria Gasper, Shakeela, Dar Kashmiri (Jeewan), Chaube ji, Srinath, Burhanuddin, Jagdish Kamal, Baby Feroza, Bonani Chaudhary, Master Salim, Raja nandlal, Nandu Khote, Kabeer, Bhoop Kishore, Homi Sethna, Jerry, Chitralekha, Anant Joshi etc in it.

This movie had the distinction of being the first technicolour movie made in India. Ironically, the movie, unlike its subject matter, has become forgotten with time.

The movie had eight songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Jhaansi Ki Raani”(1953) to appear in the blog. This song is sung mainly by chorus, with some part sung by Rafi. Pt Radheshyam is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

With this song, the title song of the movie, “Jhaansi Ki Raani”(1953) makes its debut in the blog and becomres the 3600th movie to find representation in the blog.

raaja shri ranjeet singh se akbar se sultaan
usi desh ki aary desh ki thhi ye bhi santaan
aan nahin di shaan nahin di

amar hai jhaansi ki raani

amar hai ae ae

“Matwaala”(1958) was directed by M A Thirumugam for Saraswati Pictures. The movie had Ranjan, Baliah, Anjali Devi, E. V. Saroja, P. S. Verappan, M. K. Radha etc in it.

This obscure movie had seven obscure songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Matwaala”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Hargovind is the lyricist. Music is composed by R Sudarshanam.

Only the audio of this song is avaialable. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. The word “Matwaala” figures a few times in the song and that makes this song the theme cum title song of the movie.

With this song, “Matwaala”(1958) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Sach ki hogi jeet sadaa (Matwaala)(1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hargovind, MD-R Sudarshanam

Lyrics

sach ki hogi jeet sada
aur jhooth ki hogi haar
kaaghaj ke phulo pe kaise
aa sakti hai bahaar

jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega aa aa
phool bana hi lega

baadal garje bijli kadke
toofaan shor machaaye
manzil ka matwaala raahi
aage badhta jaaye
hanste hanste har mushqil
aasaan bana hi lega aa aa
aasaan bana hi lega
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega

door ho kinaara bhale door ho
kitna wo thhaka haara majboor ho
de de jaan par na dare matwaala
de de jaan par na dare matwaala
ismein hi jeet maane jeet dilwaala
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega aa aa
phool bana hi lega

So today is the 81st birthday of our favourite “he-man” (a tag like the angry-young-man tag that was given to Amitabh Bachchan a long time ago.)

Born in Punjab and loved the world over he is an actor first who went on to become a producer to launch his sons in filmdom. He was possibly the only actor to have sailed successfully through the Rajesh Khanna and then the Amitabh Bachchan wave. He had a hold on comedy too -“Chupke Chupke” is a case in point. So today we are celebrating Dharamendra.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

So now we are all busy discussing the pros and cons of the demonetisation on our WhatsApp group. We are also having a fair number of jokes on the subject. But as our dear thandapani mentioned last week when our PM dropped the demonetisation bomb (as I like to call it) I have also decided to wait and watch for the rush at the banks and cash ATMs. At such a time a few songs ran through my mind. Let us have one of them today.
