In about mid-1940s, there was a demand for dancers in Hindi films following the success of dancers like Azurie and Cuckoo. The demand for dancers can be gauged from the fact that during 1945-50, Cuckoo worked in about 75 films of which she did as many as 34 films in 1950 alone. This ‘demand-supply’ mismatch for dancers led to the entry of new dancers in the Hindi film industry such as Mohana, Helen, Sheila Vaz, Roopmala, Kanchanmala, Kumkum etc during the late 40s and early 50s. One of the lesser known dancers who made a entry into this category during this period was Heera Sawant.

I became aware of Heera Sawant for the first time a few years back while browsing the pages of ‘Filmindia’ magazines available on-line. I had seen a couple of pictures of her in the film ‘Hua Savera’ (1948) in March 1948 issue of the magazine. At that time, I thought that she was one of those actors who came and vanished from Hindi films. But it was not so as I came to know a few months back while collecting the information for my articles on the some of the lesser known dancers of Hindi films.

Today, December 15th is the 85th birthday of Heera Sawant (born on 15/12/1935).

Heera Sawant was born in Sawantwadi taluka of Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. She was the eldest among 4 brothers and 2 sisters. Her father was in the business of motor parts in Mumbai. Soon, the family shifted to Mumbai. She did her schooling at St. Teresa High School and completed her Matriculation. She got entry in the Prithvi Theatres as an actor through her neighbour, a brother of actress Hemavati (wife of D K Sapru) who was already associated with acting in the plays of Prithvi Theatres. During this period, Heera Sawant started learning kathak dance from Master Mohanlal.

Heera Sawant got her first break in Hindi film, ‘Hua Savera’ (1948) when the producer and director of the films saw her performance in one of Prithvi Theatres’ plays. She got the second lead actress’s role with Sapru and Nayantara being the lead actors. The film did not fare well at the box office. However, she got some more assignments after the release of her maiden film. It was her semi-classical dance song, Aarti karo Shankar ki in ‘Naag Panchami’ (1953) which made her popular as a dancer. With this song, she got type-cast as dancer in most of her subsequent films.

In 1964, Heera Sawant turned a producer with her maiden Hindi film ‘Tarzan and Delilah’ (1964). She also produced a couple of Marathi films. Her 3rd Marathi film could not be released resulting in a huge financial loss for her.

Heera Sawant got married to Sundar Arya, a Punjabi businessman. After her husband’s death, she stays in Ahmednagar. [Heera Sawant’s biography is based on an interview which was posted on Shishir Krishna Sharma’s blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ in May 2019].

The active years of filmy career of Heera Sawant was from 1948 to 1969 during which she acted in around 125 films of which around 75 films were in the decade of 1950s. A majority of her films were in the genre of religious, costume drama, action and stunt.

As mentioned earlier, when she ventured into film productions sometime in the first half of 1960s, her acting career seems to have taken a back seat. This was also the period when Helen was the reigning dancer in Hindi films and new dancers cum side actresses such as Bela Bose, Aruna Irani, Minu Mumtaz, Jeevan Kala, Lakshmi Chhaya, Madhumati etc established themselves in the Hindi film industry. By early 1970s, Heera Sawant has virtually retired from the Hindi films.

Some of the popular songs picturised on her are as under:

Song Movie (year)
tim tima tim tim tima tim taare ‘Har Har Mahadev’ (1950)
saari raat jaage laage jo tose nainwaa ‘Baaraati’ (1954)
shama pe aake parwaane ‘Meenaar’ (1954)
tedhi tedhi hamse phire saari duniya ‘Musaafir’ (1957)
mere dard-e-jigar ki har dhadkan ‘Nausherwan-e-Adil’ (1957)
ritu aaye ritu jaaye sakhi ri ‘Bansari Bala’ (1957)
dil milaate jaaiye nazaren milaate jaaiye ‘Return of the Superman’ (1960)

On the occasion of 85th birth day of Heera Sawant, I present one of her dance songs from the film ‘Vazir-e-Azam’ (1961). The song is ‘daghebaaz kyun toone mera dil chheena’ sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Pushpa Marathe. The song is written by Hairat Sitapuri which is set to music by Robin Banerjee.

This is a song picturised on Master Bhagwan and Heera Sawant to divert the attention of the prison guards to facilitate the escape of Suresh from the prison. The orchestration of the song sounds like that of O P Nayyar.

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-2 – (one movie collaboration only)
——————————————————————————————-

Welcome all to today’s post. In this series we will have a song from ‘Sahir & his music directors’ for ‘one movie association’ only. We have discussed this ‘one movie collaboration’ in the first article of this series here.

We are taking a ‘pause’ here instead of moving to ‘two movie collaboration’ movies of Sahir & his music directors.

Thus, I will say this article as a ‘pause post’ here in this series.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’. So far, only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog and it was (the only popular or known song) ‘bol meri gudiya gudde ke sang jaayegi’.
This first song from this movie was posted on 24.01.2009. So, in the next couple of months this would be celebrating its twelve years on the blog. With this song being discussed today, that song would now have company. 😊

The other reason for covering a song from this movie is that I do not remember to have listened to the songs of this movie as frequently as most other songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi that I have listened to frequently and.

I have not watched this movie. But I remember to have heard the song ‘bol meri gudiya gudde ke sang jaayegi’ on radio and loud speakers in my childhood days.

‘Bhai Ho To Aisa-1972’ was directed by Manmohan Desai for ‘A.K. Movies, Bombay’. It was produced by A.K. Nadiadwala. It had Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Bipin Gupta, Tiwari, Bela Bose, Viju Khote, Praveen Paul, Jankidas and Jagdeep with Indrani Mukherjee, Jayshree T, Jeevan, Ranjeet, Bobby, Sapru.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by K.P. Pathak and dialogues were written by Prayag Raj. Kamlakar was the editor of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.05.1972.

This movie had five songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Sonik-Omi.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar were the singers for the songs in this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ho…chor…hamne phansaaya Lata Mangeshkar
02 Bol meri gudiya gudde ke sang jaayegi Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 24.01.2009
03 Aa jaa meri jawaani ko mastaani ko Lata Mangeshkar Being discussed today
04 Ae phooljhadi ae gulchhadi Mohd Rafi
05 Sun le naagraja sun le mere devta Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and on screen it is performed by Jayshree T. If one looks at the video without listening the full song somebody could well mistake it for a song sung by Asha Bhonsle.

But this is a different song where we see Jayshree T performing in front of two ‘daakus’ (Jeetendra and Jagdeep) who have kidnapped Mama (Jeevan with his daughter) and all this is done to ensure that Mama (Jeevan) believes that there is a ‘hamshakal’ of Bharat (Jeetendra) and he can tell his big brother Ram Singh (Shatrughan Sinha) about this, who is planning to kill Bharat, to get all the estate of his father on his name. However, the movie ends with everything going well as planned by the ‘director’ for the ‘audience’ 😊

I am reproducing below a brief about this movie as given on IMDB which can be helpful to understand the overall ‘plot’ 😊

“Thakur is a rich and wealthy man. He has two sons, the elder is Ram, who is married but frequents a prostitute Munnibai. The second son is Bharat, who is unmarried, and is good, virtuous, and devoted to his family, and expected to marry Roopa. While disciplining his elder son, Thakur has a heart-attack and passes away, leaving the administration of the estate to his younger son and daughter-in-law, the wife of Ram, Gayatri. This does not auger well with Ram and Mamaji, and they attempt to force Bharat to sign the estate over to them. When they fail, they conspire to kill him, and take over the estate from Gayatri. Bharat overhears this, and goes along with Ram’s plan to kill him. He then returns as Daaku Mangal Singh, his look-alike, in order to set things right. Things seem to be going well, until Bharat finds himself in a tight corner when he is accused of killing himself.”

Let us now listen to today’s song … and add one more song to the tally of songs of ‘Bhai Ho To Aisa-1972’ …

“Rampur Ka Laxman”(1972) was one movie that had caught my imagination thanks to its songs played on Radio Ceylon. I did not get to see this movie during its time. I would have dearly loved to watch this movie during its time but that did not happen.

By the time I was in a position to watch movies at my will, I was no longer into watching movies.

“Rampur Ka Laxman”(1972) was directed by Manmohan Desai for A G Films Pvt limited, Bombay. The movie had Randheer Kapoor, Rekha, Shatrughan Sinha, Padma Khanna, Sulochana, Fariyaal, Roopesh Kumar, Manmohan Krishn, Randheer, Raj Mehra, Tiwari, Keshav Rana, Ranjeet, Shaam Kumar, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti Kumar, Master Ratan, Master Chiku etc in it with Ramesh Dev in a friendly appearance.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog:-

Song post number Date Song
147 13 October 2008 Gum hai kisi ke pyaar mein
252 13 November 2008 Rampur ka waasi hoon main Laxman mera naam
9508 26 February 2014 Albela re ruk jaana
10912 26 February 2015 Kaahe apnon ke kaam nahin aaye tu Multiple version song
15958 10 October 2020 Arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan

One can notice that the movie had made its debut in the blog in 2008, during the initial months of the blog ! It has taken more than 12 years for this movie to finally get YIPPEED. It has taken 4426 days for all its songs to get covered in the blog.

Here is the seventh and final song from “Rampur Ka Laxman”(1972). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Padma Khanna, with villainous characters roaming all around her.

With this song, all the songs of “Rampur Ka Laxman”(1972) get covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Today’s song is a multi-singer song. It is from the 1976 released Madan Mohla produced and directed “Dus Numbri”. It had Hema Malini {who seemed to be favourite of all the heroes of the 50s & 60s and wanted a lease in their career ;-)} Manoj Kumar and a whole lot of Manoj Kumar-movie-regulars viz Premnath, Pran, Kamini Kaushal and Bindu. The movie was a musical with six songs.

I have very vague memories of what the movie was all about. Something to do with Manoj Kumar and Hema’s families being friends at the start of the movie. Then Premnath gets into a group that has interests in printing fake currency, which Om Shivpuri or Pinchoo Kapoor (Hema’s father) accidentally discovers and so is promptly bumped off, which drives her mother crazy due to shock (mother is also played by Hema, that is shown in Kamini Kaushal’s flashback). Some twist in the story leads Hema to a local Aunty’s adda (tavern) and Manoj Kumar becomes a “Dus Numbri” who is out to expose the evil doers of society. He has Pran (a constable) shadowing him for most of the movie and who is later revealed to be a SP or Commissioner. Then we have Bindu, a dancer, who has some clue to the gang of currency-fakers and that gives us a situation for a song where we have Premnath, Manoj Kumar and Pran (in disguise of course) trying to outwit Bindu into parting with the die of the currency printer. Simple 🙂 . It is later that we come to know that even Bindu is also a cop-in-disguise. Here I must add that only Manoj Kumar’s horrible getup doesn’t give him away but all the other two actors can easily be recognized.

Two songs from the movie is already present on the blog. One was contribution by Avinashji –Ye duniya ek numberi to main dus numberi and other by Maheshji- Na tum ho yaar aaloo na hum hain yaar gobhi.
.
Here is the third song with Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Mukesh as playback singers. Let us enjoy it and wish Prem Nath Malhotra on his birthday today. He would have been 94 today.

He started his journey in Bollywood with “Ajit” in 1948 (of which we don’t have any songs on the blog). The same year we had Premnath in “Aag” his first association with Raj Kapoor and was RK’s debut as producer- director.

Incidentally Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna was Premnath’s sister and his other sister Uma is Prem Chopra’s wife. Premnath’s brothers Narendranath and Rajendranath were also actors. He married Bina Rai, also an actress, in 1953 and his son’s Prem Kishen and Kailashnath (was called Monty in films) were actors. Prem Kishen’s daughter Akanksha is an actress and son Siddharth Malhotra is a director. (Even in these modern times there is a case of same-name confusion:- there is a Sidharth Malhotra who made his acting debut in Karan Johar’s “Student Of the Year” in 2012 who has no connection to the Premnath family).

We have many movies where Premnath has had his brothers-in-law as co-actors. We have seen him as father of Dimple Kapadia in “Bobby” which was his nephew Rishi Kapoor’s debut as an adult. That is also the first role of Premnath that I recollect. Can’t get enough of the head of a fishing community Braganza who had a peculiar way of speaking.

It was later when some black-n-white were telecast by doordarshan that I learnt that Premnath the actor first began as a hero to the likes of Madhubala, Bina Rai, Nimmi etc.I loved his acting in “Johny Mera Naam”. As also the lovable mama of Hema Malini in “Aap Beeti”, sardaar of “Roti Kapda aur Makaan”, etc. His was the central character of “Dharmatma”. He turned producer director after his marriage to Bina Rai. His last screen appearance was in 1985 in “Hum Dono” after which he reitred from acting. He passed away in 1992- 18 days before his 66th birthhday.

Remembering Premnath !

We in this blog are taking the “blog Ten Year Challenge” project rather seriously. BTYC Posts are appearing regularly in the blog,

On the other hand, some older projects are seemingly getting neglected. For instance, introducing new movies in the blog, YIPPYing movies in the blog, ensuring blog centuries for artists are some of the projects that are not getting the attention that they should.

Project YIPPEE is a cherished project of the blog. We consciously post songs of movies with the aim of covering all songs of movies. 1218 movies have been YIPPEED so far.

More than 100 movies got YIPPEED in every year from 2012 to 2018. Then we slowed down. 2019 saw only 19 movies getting YIPPEED.

2020 has seen 38 movies getting YIPPEED so far. It is not that we have run ot of movies to take up. Right now there are dozens of movies with just one song left. So we have lots and lots of YIPPIable movies awaiting their turns.

“Hill Station”(1957) is one such movie. This movie was produced by A A Nadiadwala and directed by Shakti Samanta for Pushpa Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Bina Rai, Pradeep Kumar, K N Singh, Maruti, Protima Devi, Krishnkant, Shyama, Sangeeta, Kundan, Ridku, Kathana, Nirmal Kumar, Laxman Rao, Sheila Vaz, Seema, Nazeer, Kashmiri, Tiger (dog) etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the blog so far,

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog:-

The movie appears to be a suspense movie going by the songs in it. Quite a few songs sound like club song.

The seventh and final song from “Hill Station”(1957) is sung by Geeta Dutt. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of the song is available. But the lyrics suggest that it is unmistakably a club song where a dancer is cautioning the hero about the evil intentions of the bad guys.

Since it is a club dance song, it may have been picturised on Shyama or Sheila Vaz. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This song, which I heard for the first time only now, sounds like a gem, which failed to become as popular as some other club dance songs of that era.

With this song, all the seven songs of “Hill Station”(1957) have been covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Mukesh and his co-singers –7
———————————————–

There is a school of thought amongst music lovers that the voice of Manna Dey suited better for Raj Kapoor than Mukesh. While technically, there could be substance to the concept, it remains a fact that the empathy evolving from the voice of Mukesh and the emotion and expressions of Raj Kapoor’s acting on screen fitted to a T. No wonder RK upon hearing Mukesh’s demise in far off Detroit city commented that he had lost his soul. I am of the firm opinion that the voice of Mukesh on Raj Kapoor suited most aptly than the actor singing himself.

As far as Manna Dey singing for Raj Kapoor is concerned, the songs from Chori Chori, Shree 420, Dil Hi Toh Hai, Mera Naam Joker etc. come to the mind instantly. Chori Chori and Shree 420, both released in 1956 were at a time when Mukesh was experimenting with many departments of films and had also signed a contract for the film Maashuqa as an actor-singer with heroine none other than Suraiya. The Contractalso had a clause that he would not be singing for anyone else till the completion of the film. The film unfortunately got delayed and so did the successful career of Mukesh.

It is for this reason that even though Mukesh has the iconic solo, a duet with Lata and a triad with Rafi saab and Lata, Manna Dey had his share of songs in the movie Shree 420 including the popular pyar hua ikraar hua hai.

It is said that Mukesh after singing 3 songs in the film conveyed to RK that he could no longer be part of the film because of the Contract that he had signed. So why didn’t Manna Dey establish himself as a permanent or a more frequent RK voice. Well, it was the year 1958, Mukesh free from the clutches of his Contract came back as a playback singer and boy what a return that was.

Madhumati, Parvarish, Phir Subah Hogi and Yahudi all under different composers and picturised on RK and Dilip Kumar were runway hits. Mukesh had found his mojo back. Raj Kapoor understood that with Mukesh giving him playback he need not look any further. The bond between them remained forever. Body and the soul’s bonding was noticed not only by Shankar Jaikishan but by other composers also. Thus, when Raj Kapoor forayed acting for other production houses, it was usually Mukesh who was summoned for playback.

Thus, we have Manna Dey singing only a few songs for Raj Kapoor in spite of the popularity of songs from Shree 420 and Chori Chori in 1956. However, all composers were also aware of the limitations of Mukesh and the versatility of Manna Day especially for the songs based on classical music. It is pertinent to mention the song from Dil Hi Toh Hai 1963. While most of the songs from this film were sung by Mukesh, Roshan the composer rightly found it prudent to have Manna Dey sing the popular Laagaa, chunri mein daag. With due respects to other stalwarts, I am of the firm opinion that no singer could have pulled off this song as elegantly as Manna Dey.

This post and the series as such is on Mukesh’s collaboration with other singers. And in this instance also, it’s not only about Mukesh and Manna Dey singing for RK camp but for all the songs that they rendered together in HFM. But then many songs sung by Manna Dey for Raj Kapoor have also become quite popular and hence I had to devote a majority of the post for their individual songs on Raj Kapoor.

Whilst we are on the discussing the singers in unison, I should highlight that Mukesh has sung a comic solo under Manna Dey’s composition for the film Chamkee (1952). I have always been curious to know why this song was offered to Mukesh as Manna Dey himself was quite apt at singing such songs. One possible reason could be due to the bad phase that Mukesh had entered during this period and this was could have been some kind of help extended.

Coming to today’s post, here is the list of all songs in which Mukesh and Manna Dey featured together. Not surprisingly, most of them are with multiple singers and chorus. Quite a few of them are rare and popular.

1 under Anilda is famous song from a popular film. It is interesting to note that it is sung by four singers whose names start with the letter “M”. Needless to say, it’s the only one of its kind in HFM where they have come together.

2 had many songs by Mukesh featured on Raj Kapoor and Mahendra Kapoor and Manna Dey join in for other actors in the song. Its again rare to find Geeta Dutt in SJ camp.

3 and 4 are under Hemant Kumar who himself was an accomplished singer and composer but got to many sing songs by other singers in his compositions. Mukesh has sung about half a dozen songs under him.

5 is quite a comic song on which our Arunkumar ji has written a detailed post.

S.No Name of the Song Movie (Year of release) Other co-singers if any Music Director Lyricist
1 Kadam kadam se dil de Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen (1959) Mahendra Kapoor, Meena Kapoor Anil Biswas Sahir Ludhianvi
2 Hai aag hamaare seene mein Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai (1960) Geeta Dutt, Mahendra Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar Shankar Jaikishan Shailendra
3 Mujhko mohabbat ho gayi hai Biwi Aur Makaan (1966) Talat Mehmood, Hemant Kumar, Joginder, Hemant Kumar Gulzar

7 Na tum ho yaar aloo Dus Numbri (1976) Laxmikant Pyarelal Majrooh Sultanpuri
8 Dilruba Dilliwali Dus Numbri (1976) Asha Bhonsle Laxmikant Pyarelal Majrooh Sultanpuri

4, 6, 7 and 8 from the above list are yet to be featured on the blog and I take up song number 7 for representation in this post.

Shri Harish Raghuwanshi of Surat, the compiler of Mukesh Geetkosh has helped me with confirming the correctness of and completeness of the above table of songs. I express my sincere thanks to him for his continued support.

Dus Numbri (1976) in which Mukesh had 04 songs was in continuation with the many songs that he was singing for Manoj Kumar during late sixties and seventies. The title song of this movie remains famous. Strangely, this title song is the only song of this film to be featured on the blog so far. Mukesh and Manoj Kumar’s combination had become quite popular with some outstanding songs. I had read somewhere that they were planning to produce a film upon the return of Mukesh from his US tour in 1976. As we are aware, Mukesh never came back from that tour as he passed away on 27 August 1976 in Detroit. This date being around the corner, my next post will be on his remembrance day and probably starting with a new series.

Hullo Atuldom

Holi kab hai? kab hai holi? kab? kab?” – these are the famous lines mouthed by the most dreaded daaku of Ramgarh. He was wanted ‘dead or alive’ and carried a reward of ‘pachhas hazaar’ on his head. And from his den he declared rather pompously “Yahan se pachhas pachhas kos door gaon mein … jab bachcha raat ko rota hai, toh maa kehti hai bete so ja … so ja nahi to Gabbar Singh aa jayega”. With the most simple and not-so-profound dialogues like ‘Kitne Aadmi The’, ‘Jo Darr Gaya Samjho Marr Gaya’ andTera kya hoga Kalia’, Gabbar Singh alias Amjad Khan had arrived on the Bollywood scene, giving life to one of the most celebrated and iconic characters in Hindi cinema.

Born in undivided India’s Peshawar in 1940, he was the first child of actor Jayant (Zakaria Khan). He was a bright student who had a Masters in Philosophy and loved to read English poets like Keats and Wordsworth and could debate on political theories or philosophies of Plato, Socrates and even Dr. Radhakrishnan. After his M.Phil he ventured on to the world of theatre to give a chance to his passion of acting that he had inherited from his father. That is where he was spotted by the writer duo Salim-Javed who recommended him to Ramesh Sippy and rest of the story is well known to all the fans of this wonderful actor.

That was 1975. Post ‘Sholay’ Amjad Khan went on to live a number of memorable characters on celluloid. Can anyone forget the risk-taking best friend Bishan of Kishan (Amitabh) in ‘Yaarana’,  or the funny policeman of Kumar Gaurav’s debut ‘Love Story’. He was unforgettable as Nawab Wajid Ali Shah in Satyajit Ray’s ‘Shatranj Ke Khiladi’. What versatility. He was happy that his directors and writers saw more than a villain or a daaku in him and thanked them for not typecasting him else, we would never have seen his comic timing and his mastery in emoting any kind of role.

Today it is 28 years since his passing and we have a song that shows him trying to shake a leg with Mithun. The song is penned by Farooq Kaiser and set to tune by Bappi Lahiri. It is from the 1985 release ‘Maa Kasam’ which was directed by Shibu Mitra & had a cast of Mithun, Amjad Khan, Ranjeet, Divya Rana, Sushma Seth and Pran. It was a typical masala movie complete with dances where the lead actors are in disguise etc.

I stumbled on this song recently and filed it away to post it in remembrance of Amjad Khan. It is sung by Mohd Aziz, Vijay Benedict and Parvati Khan. We also have Kalpana Iyer as part of the group dance. We can also see Guddi Maruti and Sundar present in this clip. Just to know why everyone is dressed in tribal outfits which the Red Indians will claim as their traditional wear I need to see this movie.

Song – Bingo Bingo Bingo Main Hoon Bingo  (Maa Kasam) (1985) Singer – Mohd Aziz, Vijay Benedict, Parvati Khan, Lyrics – Farooque Qaiser, MD – Bappi Lahiri

Blog Day :

Mention ‘Masti Bhara Hai Samaa’ – and there comes to mind an unforgettable sweet melody that will pull at the heart strings, no matter how many times you listen to it. Somehow, the duets that Manna Dey has sung with Lata ji or Suman Kalyanpur, under the baton of Dattaram, are melodies out of this world. Listen to “Ye Din, Din Hain Khushi Ke” from ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963), or “Na Jaane Khaan Tum The” from ‘Zindagi Aur Khwaab’ (1961), or “Boley Ye Dil Ka Ishaara” from ‘Santaan’ (1959), or “Pyaar Bhari Ye Ghataayen” from ‘Qaidi No. 911’ (1959), or “Bheegi Hawaaon Mein Teri Adaaon Mein” from ‘Shriman Satyawaadi’ (1960), or even the lesser heard “Mil Gaye Duniya Mein Jeene Ke Sahaare” from ‘Dark Street’ (1961) and “Yeh Nasheeli Hawa, Chha Raha Hai Nasha” from ‘Neeli Aankhen’ (1962).

Remembering Dattaram Wadker on the anniversary of his passing away today – 08 June, 2007. He was 78 when he passed away.

About 20 films to his credit and little over 120 songs, brings up his entire body of work across three decade of active career in the industry. This body of work is as an independent music director. More than that, he is also known for his work as a musician and an arranger, especially for the music director duo of Shankar Jaikishan. As a master precusionist, his work is as a tabla and dholak player is legendary. The beats that we hear in iconic creations like “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh”, “Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya”, “Aa Ja Sanam Madhur Chandni Mein. . .”, “Jahaan Mein Jaati Hoon. . .”. And the duff that we hear being played in “Mera Naam Raju Gharana Anaam” and “Dil Ka Haal Suney Dil Wala”, has the fingers of Dattaram working the instrument.

But then, his work is not to be judged solely by the pace and rhythm of so many of his heart strumming melodies. His creative genius also brought to music lovers, such wonderful gems of melancholia – “Aansoo Bhari Hain Ye Jeevan Ki Raahen”, “Maalik Tere Jahaan Mein”, “Haal e Dil Hamaara, Jaane Na Bewafa Ye Zamaana. . .”, “Dil Dhoondhta Hai Sahaare Sahaare”, “Kabhi Kisi Ki Khushiyaan Koi Loote Naa”, “Hum Aapki Mehfil Mein Bhoole Se Chale Aaye”, “Mere Aansuon Pe Na Muskura.”, “Beete Huye Din Kuch Aise Hi Hain, Yaad Aate Hi Dil Machal Jaaye”, “Itne Bade Jahan Mein Apna Bhi Koi Hota”, and more. The versatility of this unsung music director is surely remarkable.

Today, we are bringing on board the fifth and final song of the film ‘Qaidi No. 911’ from 1959. Out of the five songs, the earlier four have made their appearance on this blog as per the following,

 

1 Meethi Meethi Baaton Se Bachnaa Zaraa 2005 29-Sep-09 Lata
2 Pyaar Bhari Ye Ghataayen 2457 9-May-10 Lata, Manna Dey
3 Tere Teer Ko Hamne Pyar Se Dil Mein Rakhh Liyaa 5234 2-Jan-12 Lata
4 Toone Mera Maine Tera Dil Le Liyaa 15592 9-May-20 Lata

All the songs of this film are written by Hasrat Jaipuri. Today’s song is a club dance song which is performed on screen by Minoo Mumtaz. The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar and she is accompanied by Mehmood, who sings some words in his own voice. In the people who are viewing this performance, one can make out Sheikh Mukhtar who is disguised in traditional Arabic dress, and NA Ansari.

The film is produced and directed by Aspi Irani for the banner of Super Pictures, Bombay. The cast of actors is listed as Sheikh Mukhtar, Nanda, Mehmood, Dazy Irani, Honey Irani, Meenu Mumtaz, Mukri, Gajanan Jagirdar, Heeralal, Achla Sachdev, Protima Devi, Babu Raje, Tuntun, Uma Dutt, Nagpal, Altaf, Bhudo Advani, Fazlu, Mitthu Mian, Mohan Sandow, Rammurti, Shetty, Shafi, Gulab, Prem Sagar, Hanuman, Krishna Kumar, Bagla, Afsarjahan, and Muneera Begum etc.

So with this post, the film ‘Qaidi No. 911’ now becomes a member of the ‘yippeee’ club with all its songs now showcased here.

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 24
———————————————–

‘Gali Theke Rajpath’ (Bangla film, 1959) was written and directed by Prafulla Chakraborty. The star cast included Uttam Kumar, Sabitri Chatterjee, Chhabi Biswas, Anup Kumar, Chhaya Devi, Tulsi Chakraborty, Bikash Roy, Shyam Laha, Sheela Paul, Helen, Jahar Roy etc. I have watched the video of a moderately edited film on one of the video sharing platforms. Probably, the film’s VHS tape was damaged as I found some  ‘jumps’ in the continuity of the film’s story. Unfortunately, English sub-titles are not available. A short synopsis on the cover of the VCD of the film helped me to understand the film’s story in a proper perspective.

The film opens with Raja (Uttam Kumar), a small-time thief coming out of the jail and Bhola (Anup Kumar), his close associate receives Raja outside the jail. Both of them discuss the plan for a bigger heist.

One day, Mala (Sabitri Chatterjee) arrives in their neighbourhood with her father (Tulsi Chakraborty) to reside in the locality where Raja and Bhola stay.  In the first meeting with them at the time of getting down from the bus, Bhola helps Mala and her father in bringing out their belongings from the bus. But in doing so, he picks her father’s wallet. Finding his wallet missing, Raja decides to pay the fares on their behalf to impress them to be of helping nature. Within few days, Raja and Bhola became closer to Mala’s father, though Mala keeps  a distance without offending them.

Mala is the only earning member by working in the theatre. She is not aware of Raja’s real identity. He tries hard to impress her to gain her attention.  In the meantime, Gobardhan (Bikas Roy) has been trying to stalk Mala in his efforts to make her join films. She tells Raja and Bhloa about her problems with Gobardhan which results in both of them punishing him on more than one occasions. All these actions of the duo create good impression on Mala who starts liking Raja.

In line with their plan to strike something big, Raja and Bhola get acquainted with a businessman Datta (Chhabi Biswas) and impress him into lending them money for their business which does not exist. Datta gives them the financial support as well as goods with a proviso that if  they sell the goods,  he would give them concession. However, being thieves and cheaters, both of them decide neither to return the money nor the goods.

One day, Raja and Bhola are seen picking someone’s pocket in a bus in which Mala is also travelling. She comes to know the real side of Raja. She starts avoiding him. Having lost Mala, Raja decides to reform himself and becomes a changed man. He gives up pickpocketing and cheating business much against the advice of his close friend, Bhola. And then Bhola also falls in line with Raja as for him, his unimpeachable friendship with Raja is more important than his notorious vocation.

Raja approaches businessman Datta and tells him the actual truth about his activities and his love for Mala. The fact is that Datta was already aware of Raja and Bhola’s nefarious activities. He was handling with a reformist approach by testing them with financial help to start a business and become the good citizens.  Datta goes and meets Mala and asks her to forgive Raja. Raja once again regains Mala’s love and the film has a happy ending.

When I watched this film, I was getting a feeling that I was watching a Bollywood film. The story of the film was nowhere near to the quality of most of the Bangla films with strong story lines. However, to the credit of the film’s director, Prafulla Chakraborty and of the main actors like Uttam Kumar, Sabitri Chatterjee, Anup Kumar and the veteran Chhabi Biswas, there was not much of dull moments in the film. The director ensured that Uttam Kumar and Anup Kumar in the roles of petty thieves with their light comical performances remained the likeable characters for the audience in their roles throughout the film.

‘Gali Theke Rajpath’ (1959) has 3 songs all of which sound like Bollywood songs insofar as musical compositions are concerned. Of the three songs, one song is in Hindi and the remaining two Bengali songs are solos sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. Incidentally, Manna Dey sung for Uttam Kumar for the first time in this film in which he had also done yodelling.

I am presenting the only Hindi song in the film, “Tere Liye Aaya Hai Le Ke Koi Dil’ sung by Geeta Dutt. The song is picturised on Helen as a dance song in a  thieve’s den in which Uttam Kumar is present. The song is written by Naqsh Layallpuri. The musical score is that of Sudhin Dasgupta, the younger brother of Kamal Dasgupta. The tune of the song sounds somewhat similar to one of the Hindi film songs of the 50s which I am not able to recall. The song has  OP Nayyar style of composition.

Enjoy one more Helen song among the umpteen songs, Geeta Dutt sang for her in Hindi films.

Song – Tere Liye Aaya Hai Le Ke Koi Dil (Gali Theke Rajpath) (Bangla) (1959) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sudhin Dasgupta

Lyrics
(Based on Audio Version)

tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
kitne haseen hain ye palkon ke saaye
dekh tujhe koi ishaaron se bulaaye
kitne haseen hain ye palkon ke saaye
dekh tujhe koi ishaaron se bulaaye
rahegi na pheeki
bahaaren zindagi ki
aa tujh ko khushi ki
dikhaa doon manzil
rahegi na pheeki
bahaaren zindagi ki
aa tujh ko khushi ki
dikhaa doon manzil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
husn ke mele mein aa ke albele
wo dil hi nahi hai jo dil se na khele
husn ke mele mein aa ke albele
wo dil hi nahi hai jo dil se na khele
kehti hai fasaana
nighaahen mastaana
tuhe to samjhaana
bada hai mushqil
kehti hai fasaana
nighaahen mastaana
tuhe to samjhaana
bada hai mushqil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
jalwe dikhaati yun nazaren bachaana
kar ke bahaana kisi ko tarsaana
jalwe dikhaati yun nazaren bachaana
kar ke bahaana kisi ko tarsaana
chhod ye adaayen
jo dil ko jalaayen
aa mil ke banaaye
suhaani mehfil
chhod ye adaayen
jo dil ko jalaayen
aa mil ke banaaye
suhaani mehfil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya. . .

तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

कितने हसीं हैं ये पलकों के साये
देख तुझे कोई इशारों से बुलाये
कितने हसीं हैं ये पलकों के साये
देख तुझे कोई इशारों से बुलाये
रहेगी ना फीकी
बहारें ज़िंदगी की
आ तुझको खुशी की
दिखा दूँ मंज़िल
रहेगी ना फीकी
बहारें ज़िंदगी की
आ तुझको खुशी की
दिखा दूँ मंज़िल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

हुस्न के मेले में आ के अलबेले
वो दिल ही नहीं है जो दिल से ना खेले
हुस्न के मेले में आ के अलबेले
वो दिल ही नहीं है जो दिल से ना खेले
कहती हैं फसाना
निगाहें मस्ताना
तुझे तो समझाना
बड़ा है मुश्किल
कहती हैं फसाना
निगाहें मस्ताना
तुझे तो समझाना
बड़ा है मुश्किल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

जलवे दिखाती यूं नज़रें बचाना
कर के बहाना किसी को तरसाना
जलवे दिखाती यूं नज़रें बचाना
कर के बहाना किसी को तरसाना
छोड़ ये अदाएं
जो दिल को जलाएं
आ मिल के बनाएँ
सुहानी महफिल
छोड़ ये अदाएं
जो दिल को जलाएं
आ मिल के बनाएँ
सुहानी महफिल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया. . .
