Hullo Atuldom

Kaahe ko byaahi bides posted on 30 march 2014 is a post where I had thanked all the lyrics writers of film songs for highlighting emotions of human beings and particularly women. I had said “WOW” to writers who cared for feelings of the Female of the human species. Specially the feelings at the time of “Bidaai” after the wedding rituals.

In that post I had also mentioned that songs with the heading/ title “Kaahe ko byaahi bides” has appeared twice on the blog until that date -30/03/2014. It is nearly 9 years since and fresh reviewing shows that we have the following songs posted with the said title

Song Movie (Year) Date of post Remarks
Lakhi baabul mere kaaahe ko deenhi bides Suhaagraat (1948) 7 December 2011 Credited to Amir Khusro
Kaaahe ko byaahi bides Heer Ranjha (1948) 8 December 2011
Kaahe ko byaahi bides Nadirshah (1968) 25 February 2013
kaahe ko byaahi bides Aadha Din Aadhi Raat (1977) 30 March 2014
Kaahe ko byaahi bades Jailor (1938) 7 August 2018 (post by Arunji)
Kaahe ko byaahi bides re lakhi baabul morey Jhankaar(1942) 24 February 2020 (post by Arunji & credited to Amir Khusro.)
Kaahe ko byaahi bides Umraao Jaan (1981) 4 March 2022 (credited to Amir Khusro)

As can be seen from the above we have seven versions of “Kaahe ko byaahi bides” of which ‘suhaagraat”(1948) “Umrao Jaan” (1981) & ” Jhankaar” (1942) give credit to Amir Khusro for the song. One version each have been credited to Wali Sahab, Kamal Amrohi, Majrooh Sultanpuri & Anand Bakshi. Another interesting result of this review- two of the posts are exhaustive, highly informative writeups by our in-house encyclopaedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji.

This is what he has said in his post dated 07/08/2018 about the use of this song in films :-

Today’s song is “Kaahe Ko Byaahi Bides”. This is a famous song by Amir Khusro. This has been used in several films like, Jhankaar-42, Heer Ranjha-48, Nadir Shah-68, Suhag Raat-48, Maang Bharo Sajna-80 and Umrao Jaan-2009, in addition to today’s song from film Jailor-38. It is also sung as a NFS by many famous singers. Mostly in films, the original song is mixed with some new lyrics and the credit is given to film’s lyricist. In film Jailor-38 too, the lyricist’s name is given as Kamal Amrohi.

All of what I have written above will make readers wonder where I am getting.

Of course I am presenting another version with this post. It is in the voice of Kavita Krishnamurthy, written by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Laxmi-Pyare. It is from the 1980 release “Maang Bharo Sajna” which was directed by T. Rama Rao and produced by A. Poornachandra Rao.

It had Rekha- Moushumi Chatterjee – Jeetendra heading a cast which also had Kajal Kiran, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Parveen Paul, Yunus Parvez, Mohan Choti etc. The plot was essentially, an oft-repeated, melodrama where the hero falls in love & marries one heroine but has to, later, marry the other heroine who may have been selected by his family. At the time of the second marriage, the hero may believe that the first wife is dead or lost to him (as the case maybe) thus making the second marriage valid. Then the first wife will make a reappearance and then the complications will begin, leading to everyone being ready to sacrifice their love. Matters will get more interesting (for the audience) if the heroines are friends and infants are also present, then the climax will have one lady dying so that the other one live the rest of her life peacefully. This was the outline of most triangular love-stories, but was a hit-formula adopted by filmmakers to fill their coffers.

Today’s song comes at the close of the movie where we have a dying Rekha being accepted by Moushumi Chatterjee as her husband’s first wife. She instructs her husband to fill Rekha’s ‘Maang’ with Sindoor.

With this post we wish Kavita Krishnamurthy on turning a year older. This was one of her first recording for Hindi films. Of course, she had recorded ‘aayega aayega… aayega aanewaala” under Vilayat Khan’s music direction for “Kaadambari” (1975) and here is the post to that song as written by Sudhirji in his series “Songs Repeated In Hindi Films”.

That makes the song from “Kaadambari” her debut in Hindi films, which was followed by a song in Kannada under Bhaskar Chandavarkar’s music direction. Today’s song from “Maang Bharo Sajna” happened to be her first in the 1980s; however songs from “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” (1985) got her recognition; though there were other films between 1980 & 1985 were Kavita Krishnamurthy had sung songs most of which under Laxmi-Pyare’s music direction.

I had a very sweet experience last weekend. I got an opportunity to wish today’s birthday girl on the occasion of Sankranti. I interacted with her for a few minutes, wished her etc. She was gracious enough to let me click pictures with her. She told me that Bangalore is, now her favourite city, when I told her that I had met her once before too, on a flight from Bangalore to Mumbai.

Here is the song.


Song-Kaahe ko byaahi bides (Maang Bharo Sajna)(1980) Singer-Kavita Krishnamurthy, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Today’s song is from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Suhaana Safar’.

Many of my articles are prompted when my memory gets triggered while listeneing to (or thinking about) songs of movies that I watched long ago.

Today’s post is one such post.

I was travelling to pick up my elder daughter from her new working place which is around 150 kms from Vadodara ( a journey of around two hours and forty-five minutes long). I was travelling to bring her back home for ‘holi’ vacation and her marriage vacation 🙂 (her marriage is scheduled this week). 🙂

I was travelling in the afternoon. When I switched on to ‘vividh bharati’ on 93.9FM’ I got to listen to this program ‘kuchh baatein kuchh geet’. It is a ‘theme’ based program where the audience also share their thoughts related to the theme and request for songs of their choice according to the theme.

During this program I got to listen to this song ‘aha aha aa ye suhaana safar’ (as the theme for that day of 17th March 2022 was ‘suhaana’ or ‘suhawnaapan’ etc.

I liked this song very much. It brought back memories of watching this movie when I must be around seven-eight years old. This movie was screened at the weekly screening of movies at the colony club where we then resided.

Though I do not remember this movie now, but this song is permanently embedded on my mind. I had shared this song as a ‘lyrics contributor’ on the blog.

I must be between two-three years old when this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ had released. Recently I came across many movies of ‘end-sixties’ or from the years – 1968 to 1971 where songs from some of the movies are part of my nostalgia of those years.

I am sure some songs may be getting embedded on my impressionable mind then where the elders must have carried me to movies they watched or some songs were played frequently on the radio, when I was growing, and thus they become part of my vague memories.

I had earlier attempted to list down the songs which makes me feel nostalgic and those songs which bring back old memories, in this post.

I am thinking to revisit movies in chronological order -from the year of my birth i.e. 1968 to 1983-85 when I become a grown up boy and had completed my 10+2 education. I am sure this will be an interesting ‘journey’. But that is a part of another ‘series’ 🙂 of posts.

Coming back to the today’s post now …

When I reached back to my ‘base station’’ I browsed the blog and noted that this movie ‘Suhaana Safar’ is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. On checking the remaining two songs I find the song under discussion more suitable for today’s presentation as the song is happening on a ‘marriage function’ in the movie.

“Suhaana Safar -1970” was directed by Vijay for ‘Century Films, Bombay’.

It had Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Om Prakash, Lalita Pawar, David, Manmohan Krishna, Leela Mishra, Bhagwan, K.N. Singh, Tiwari, Sunder, Randhir, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Sherry, and others.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Five songs from this movie have already been posted on the blog as given below.

06 Aha aha ye suhaana safar Suman Kalyanpur 18.03.2018

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This vigorous dance song is lip synced by Jayshree T. She has given an energetic and enthusiastic performance in this song which is highly enjoyable to watch.

Also seen in the picturisation of the song are Shashi Kapoor and many other male-female artists.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and say ‘Yippeeee’ to this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ on the blog.

(When I had already noted the lyrics of this song and noting the date of the earlier posts, I noted that this movie was eligible for ‘blog ten-year challenge’ on 08.03.2022. And as usual lyrics of the remaining two songs from this movie were also sent by our dear Prakash ji for that day.)

“Durga”(1939) was produced by Devika Rani and Himanshu Rai and directed by Franz Osten for Bombay Talkies, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Rama Shukul, V H Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Peethawala, Saroj Borkar, Balwant singh, Lalita Deulkar etc in it.

“Durga”(1939) had ten songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the third song from “Durga”(1939) to appear in the blog.

Devika Rani is the singer. Lyrics are penned by Narendranath Tuli. Saraswati Devi is the music director.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on Devika Rani herself.

From the lyrics it is seen that the song is a “wedding” song. Whether it is a gudda gudiya wedding song or a real wedding song is not known, seeing that video of the song is not available.

Nevertheless, the fact that this song came to my notice just now and it is getting discussed today validates the oft made observation that some higher forces are overseeing this blog and it is these higher forces that often decide what songs are covered in this blog on what day. 🙂 The daughter of one of our regulars got married today and fate ordained that the blog celebrates the occasion with this song from the yore.

So we take this occasion to greet the recently wedded daughter of our regular contributor Avinash Scrapwala. We all wish Shivani and Jeegar a very happy, prosperous and long married life.


Song-Nanhi Bitiya Byaah Rachaaye (Durga) (1939) Singer-Devika Rani, Lyrics-Narendranath Tuli, MD-Saraswati Devi

Lyrics

Nanhi bitiya byaah rachaaye
dulha chadh haathi par aaye
Nanhi bitiya byaah rachaaye
dulha chadh haathi par aaye
baaje dhol mridang
?? rah jaaye dang

laal chunariya kesari choli
sheesh chadhe chandal aur roli
laal chunariya kesari choli
sheesh chadhe chandal aur roli
kumkum pushp ka phool
maang bhare sindoor
kumkum pushp ka phool
maang bhare sindoor

baapu aaye doli chadhaaye
naina chham chham neer bahaaye
baapu aaye doli chadhaaye
naina chham chham neer bahaaye
maa ko bhaari ??

nanhi bitiya byaah rachaaye

Hullo Atuldom

In the (almost) 14 years of its existence, there have been many changes in the lives of those associated with atulsongaday.me.

Our Atulji has shifted base a few times in these years. If I am not wrong his daughter has qualified to be a doctor as also Nahmji’s son and Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji’s (Guruji) grandson/s have also become doctors. Peevesie who entered the world of ASAD and was called the youngest follower turning to contributor and mouthpiece (for the blog) among her friends and family has since become a working adult and even has a life-partner as also Nahmji’s daughter. Avinashji has also shifted base a few times and also had an overseas stint in the years in between. Maheshji (Mukesh Fan is his second name) has returned to Motherland and is no longer an NRA (non-resident atulite). I know that similar changes, in life & on the work front, have happened in the lives of other Atulites too. I have myself graduated from being a full-time mother to a leisurely-paced mother.

There is a lesser-known Atulite who has contributed only one post as a guest-poster (she took over the mantle of youngest contributor). Her forte’ is that she is musically inclined as her father (a hyper-active atulite). I know that she also pens verses which are very meaningful. She had given her father this post on his birthday six years back. She was welcomed wholeheartedly by atulites who wanted more from her but her preoccupation with education and other activities may not have given her time to contribute more to the blog. But the song with that post was so meaningful, it would have been appropriate for today. She has grownup into a young adult and is stepping into a new phase of her life. Here is wishing her all the best for the future.

There is a happy event happening in the life of our Guruji too in the next few days. Wishing him lots of joy and all the best to his grandson.

“Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai” is a title that was first used in Hindi films in 1961 which was written and directed by Nasir Husain and had his time-tested formula of hero impersonating, heroine falling in love with the impersonator, misunderstandings creeping in due to the villain and heroine’s father, and finally the hero and heroine getting married with the blessings of all elders. The movie was littered with great songs.

The title was repeated again in 1998. This time the director was Deepak Sareen who had started his career as assistant to Yash Chopra in ‘Deewar’. He had been assistant in ‘Kabhi Kabhi’, ‘Doosra Aadmi’, ‘Silsila’, ‘Mashaal’ and ‘Faasle’ before independently directing ‘Ranbhoomi’, ‘Aaina’, ‘Gaddar’, ‘Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai’, and ‘Albela’. This romantic film had a skirt-chaser for a hero who is disliked by the girl initially. He woos her by promising to give up his errant ways, convinces both families that they are ready to marry. But the twist in the tale comes in the form of the hero’s son from a previous girlfriend who insists that he will tell-all to the fiancee if the hero doesn’t tell himself. The story comes to a happy ending with the girl and the child forgiving the hero and ‘THE END’

“Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai” (1998) starred Twinkle Khanna, Farida Jalal, Himani Shivpuri, Namrata Shirodkar (guest appearance), Salman Khan, Anupam Kher, Johnny Lever, Saeed Jaffery, and Master Aditya Narayan. The movie had songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Jatin-Lalit. Today we are having the movie debuting with a song sung by Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam. It has the whole cast except Aditya Narayan enjoying the engagement of Salman and Twinkle.

“Ghoonghat”(1960) was produced by S S Wasan and directed by Ramanand Sagar for Gemini Studios, Madras. This movie had Bharat Bhushan, Pradeep Kumar, Bina Rai, Asha Parekh, Leela Chitnis, Rajendranath, Rehman, Agha etc. This was a Madrasi style movie, but curiously enough, its story was inspired from a Bangla story. It was an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s 1906 Bengali story “Noukadubi”.

The movie had ten songs in it. Eight songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the ninth song from “Ghoonghat”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a marriage ritual song. The song is lip synced by Bina Rai who plays the silently sacrificing lady, a character that was the cornerstone of Hindi movies of these days.

The bride is played by a very young Asha Parekh.

Hullo Atuldom

So, we have post number 16700 up. Congratulations to Atulji on yet another Hundred. There was a time, not so long back, when we used to have a century every month. Atulji, please confirm, wasn’t there a fastest century too- a century in 16 days? In the run up to my previous post I had noticed that “this date last year” i.e. 15th December 2020, the blog had celebrated its 16100th post with this post which also happened to be the music director duo Shankar-Jaikishan’s 1000th on the blog. I was wondering how Atulji will make post number 16700 special and it is indeed special considering the time-period of that song (1947). Hearty congratulations Atulji.

Let us kick-start the new century with a song from the 1981 release “Shradhanjali”. This was written and directed by Anil Sharma (who was only 21 then), produced by K C Sharma and had Hemant Bhonsle’s music and songs written by Anjaan. Bhupinder Singh, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, and Shobha Gurtu were the playback singers used.

The movie had a cast headed by Rakhee (in one of her sacrificing Naari roles) and Deepak Parasher was her romantic hero. Arun Govil played her Devar (brother-in-law) who is in awe of her and simply worships her. Madhu Kapoor was Arun Govil’s romantic interest, Sulochana was mother to Deepak Parasher and Arun Govil and Rakhee’s mother-in-law. Suresh Oberoi played the spoke-in-the-wheel that topples Rakhee’s apple cart. Then the movie had K.N. Singh, Jankidas, Yunus Parvez, Manik Dutt, Keshto Mukherjee, Sonia Sahni etc bringing up the supporting cast; all of whose characters together make the movie a ‘sob-story-movie’ which became Rakhee’s forte’ for a few years in the 80s. The Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu Bhopali also makes an appearance in the movie for the song that was sung by Shobha Gurtu.

I have very little knowledge about the Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu, though I have seen the song from ‘Shradhanjali’ a few times in my life. Her facial expressions were very pretty. This is what our dear Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has written about Shakeela Banu Bhopali in his latest post (and I quote, hope he doesn’t mind it)

The other famous qawwal in films was Shakeela Banu Bhopali. She was multitalented. She acted in 32 films, but sang only 4 songs in 3 films. She too gave music to just 1 film- ‘Maze Le Lo’- 1975. She died on 16-12-2002.

This was part of a post that highlighted Jaani Babu Qawwal in Arunkumarji’s current series on ‘songs from artiste name films’

As per what I read somewhere on the internet, she had lost her voice due to the Bhopal gas tragedy in 1984. She passed away of a cardiac arrest on 16th December, 2002.

On to the song that is part of the wedding rituals of Madhu Kapoor and Arun Govil. We can see Suresh Oberoi welcoming the groom and the baaraat of which Arun Govil’s bhabhima (Rakhee) and her chief advisor (K.N. Singh) who is helping her in resurrecting her husband’s business after Suresh Oberoi ruins it and is the cause of Deepak Parasher’s death.

sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar

Hullo Atuldom

Chal chameli baagh mein was a post by our Nahmji to wish Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma (one-half of the Laxmi-Pyare duo) on his 80th birthday. The song was from Shubash Ghai’s “Krodhi”. The post also gives us a brief synopsis of the movie, the cast and people associated with the music of the film.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle as playback for Shashi Kapoor and Zeenat Aman. It is a song at the wedding of Zeenat’s sister (Madhu Malhotra is the actress) and of the chhed-chhaad variety where the ‘ladkiwaale’ and ‘ladkewaale’ keep talking of the benevolence of the bride and groom towards each other. It was a song which I had in memory for a long time and Nahmji’s post last year brought it out of cold-storage (so to speak).

We remember the cute gentleman ‘Shashi Kapoor’ today on his 4th death anniversary today. He had a long run on the silver screen having begun as a child actor in the late 40s with movies like his brother, Raj Kapoor’s directorial “Aag” & “Awaara”. He had played the childhood of Ashok Kumar in ‘Sangram’ and Bharat Bhushan in ‘Dana Paani’, he was credited as Master Shashiraj in these movies. An interesting trivia that I just recollected is that he has played Ashok Kumar’s son in a few films in the ’70s and ’80s and Bharat Bhushan’s son in ‘Pyar Ka Mausam’ (there may be other such movies too).

He made a charming pair with all of his female co-stars be it Nanda, Mumtaz, Rekha, Rakhee, Hema, Parveen Babi, Sharmila Tagore, Babita and many others. He was cast opposite Indrani Mukherjee in his first adult role in ‘Dharmputra’ and his final film appearance was in the 1998 Pakistani-British epic biographical film ‘Jinnah’ where he was the narrator.

I was particularly in love with his pairing with Amitabh Bachchan, the two appeared together in 12 films starting with ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’. He had acted in about 116 films of which 61 were as solo hero and 55 were multi-starrers. At one point in his career his older brother Raj Kapoor had called him a ‘Taxi’ as he was working in many movies at the same time.

Let us also take this opportunity to wish our own Zeenie Baby on turning 70 this year. Her birthday was on 19th November. For fans of Bollywood, who were young or kids in the ’70s, it may be difficult to believe that Zeenat Aman turned 70. Zeenat- who was a style icon in her days. An actress who was not always cast as the typical Bharatiya Nari. An actress who was comfortable in whatever she wore even if it was a two-piece bikini- which was, not exactly, a preferred costume of the actresses of her period specially if they played the main lead. She had a unique style and diction for delivering her dialogues which made her the perfect choice for playing modern convent-educated characters back then. She was a decent dancer too.

Missing the super cute Balbir Raj Kapoor a.k.a. Shashi Kapoor and wishing health and happiness to Zeenat Aman.

This article is the 4900th guest post overall in the blog and 400th guest post by Avinash Scrapwala in the blog.

Blog Day :

4727 Post No. : 16443

Today 27th June 2021 is the eighty-second birth anniversary (27.06.1939 – 04.01.1994) of music composer Rahul Dev Burman or Pancham Da as we fondly know him.

On this occasion we remember him and celebrate his birth anniversary by listening to songs composed by him. That way we pay our humble tributes to this great genius who ruled Hindi Film Music from the seventies to mid-eighties.

Though more than seven hundred R D Burman songs are already showcased in the blog, I was still confused about the song to be selected for today’s presentation, seeing that many of Pancham’s well known songs are still not yet covered on the blog. Nowadays I am listening to Vividh Bharati daily and I am regularly coming across many of his songs on the radio (not yet covered here). whenever I listen to them, I feel like sharing the lyrics of those songs in the blog. Out of 1755 songs estimated to be composed by him in HFM we have posted only 739 songs on the blog so far. So we have yet to reach the halfway mark as far as R D Burman songs in the blog is concerned.

(I have also noted couple of new topics about the songs composed by R.D. Burman and will try to bring them on the blog in future).

As observed above, we are still a long way off from enjoying the ‘music’ of the great genius Rahul Dev Burman fully in the blog.

A lot has already been written about Pancham Da’s music, his geniuses, his ‘era’ of ‘music’, his ‘rise’ in the Hindi Film Music and the days when he was ‘left alone’ by the people in the Film Industry. Few books have also been published about ‘the man and his music’ i.e., R.D. Burman. There have been many articles on him on our blog itself. So I ill not repeat the same details and I will straightway to today’s song now.

Today we will listen to one of the songs composed by R.D. Burman which is from the movie ‘Chalta Purza-1977’. It was produced and directed by Bhappi Sonie for his home productions. This movie had Rajesh Khanna, Parveen Babi, Rakesh Roshan, Ajit, Ranjeet, Asrani, Purnima, Baby Chintu, Sonia Sahni, Sudhir, Manmohan, V. Gopal, Leena Disuza, Kirti Kumar, Kuljit, Dhoomal, Aparna Chaudhary, Madan Keni, Bramha Bharadwaj, Shyam Kumar, Mumtaz Begam, Lalita Kumari, Manorama, Habib, Keshav Rana, Madhup Sharma, Kamal, Kamaldeep, Dilip Dutt, Jankidas and others. Bindu make a special appearance in this movie, while Murad, Raj Mehra, Komila Virk, Keti Mirza and Dev Kumar make a guest appearance in this movie.

Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Sachin Bhaumick and dialogues were written by Kader Khan. Editing for this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.06.1977, that is almost forty-four years back.

There were four songs in this movie composed by R.D. Burman and written by Anand Bakshi. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Sushma Shreshtha gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Following is the list of songs of this movie-

S.No. Song Title Singer Posted on the blog on
01 Ye raat ne rang jamaaya hai, nayaa khilaadi aaya hai Asha Bhonsle
02 Aa gaye ham dildaar teri gali mein dilbar yaar Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar Being presented today
03 Baby ghar chalo ghar tum bin hai soona Kishore Kumar, Sushma Shreshtha 29.12.2016
04 Aapne farz nibhaaya hai … band lifaafe mein jaise paighaam likha hota hai Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar 06.02.2013

As mentioned above two songs from this movie ‘Chalta Purza-1977’ have been posted on the blog. (We can also see that we are going in ascending order 😊 in posting of the songs of this movie).

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog. Today’s song is
sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar and on the screen Bindu and Rajesh Khanna have lip-synced for the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, respectively. The song seems to be happening in a marriage ceremony in the movie, I guess its marriage ceremony of Rakesh Roshan who can be seen with Rajesh Khanna, Bindu, and many others in the picturization of this song.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Song-Arre aa gaye hum dildaar teri gali mein dilbar yaar(Chalta Purza)(1977) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Are aa gaye ham dildaar
Teri gali mein
Dilbar yaar
Nakhre chhad ho ja tayyar
Gaadi chhoot jaayegi
Arre aa gaye hum dildaar
Teri gali mein
Dilbar yaar
Nakhre chhad ho ja tayyar
Gaadi chhoot jaayegi
O main nahin jana tere saath
Main nahin jana tere saath re
Main nahin jana tere saath
Leja waapas ye baaraat
Phir mat karna aisi baat
Yaari toot jaayegi
Main nahin jaana tere saath
Leja waapas ye baaraat
Phir mat karna aisi baat
Yaari toot jaayegi

Bade naseebon waali hai tu
Lagi hai hamko pyaari
Bade naseebon waali hai tu
Lagi hai hamko pyaari
Ham chal diye to
Reh jaayegi saari umr kunwaari
Are mere liye bahut hain ladke
Laga hua hai mela
Mere liye bahut hain ladke
Laga hua hai mela
Main na mili to reh jaayega
Saari umr akeyla

Taane mat maar
Jhagdaa mat kar beech bazaar
Nakhre chhad ho ja tayyar
Gaddi chhoot jaayegi
Main nahin jana tere saath
Leja waapas ye baarat
Phir mat karna aisi baat
Yaari toot jaayegi

Gali gali phirte hain tere jaise
Kayi deewaane
Mujhe to shaq hai bhool gaya hai
Rastaa tu anjaane

Mujhe kayi khat likhe toone
Gharwaalon se chori
Mujhe kayi khat likhe toone
Gharwaalon se chori
Chupke se mere haathon mein de de haath o gori
Maang na mera haath main na doon tujhko khairaat
Phir mat karna aisi baat
Yaari toot jaayegi

Are aa gaye hum dildaar
Teri gali mein
Dilbar yaar
Nakhre chhad ho ja tayyar
Gaadi
Are
Chhoot jaayegi ee

Today’s song is from a relatively obscure film, though it was said to be successful in those days. The song is from the film Prabhat-1941 – made by Tarun Pictures. It was directed by a true professional V.M. Vyas, who knew his job so well that 60% of his films were successful at the Box office. He took the best stars always and major singers and composers worked for him. His own banner was Sunrise Pictures, established in early 1941 and in the first 6 months itself his first film ‘ Ghar ki Laaj’ was completed. Prabhat was his second film as a director in 1941.

Vishnukumar Maganlal Vyas was born on 4-11-1905 in Ahmedabad. He started his career in 1927 as a Cinematographer. His company, Sunrise films was started in 1941. He produced and directed 30 Hindi and many Gujarati films. He died on 24-1-1962 at Bombay. Vyas was a very hardworking person and a man of ‘ never say die ‘ spirit. He was disciplined and did not tolerate any nonsense. He was also known as a very miser. He being a Vaishnav, his stars would get only vegetarian food during shootings. If they wanted Non Veg food, they had to spend for it.

At the time of film Naukar-43, the pair of Shaukat Hussain and Nur jehan troubled Vyas to no end. Not attending the shoots on time, asking for extra money on some pretext or the other and in general giving trouble and mental torture to Vyas were common. Not only this, additionally Nur jehan and Shaukat used to take interesting property materials from the sets to their house-like furniture, decorative vase, cupboards etc. Vyas kept quiet till the film was complete.

Once the film was completed and released, he registered an F.I.R against both of them for stealing studio equipment. To utter dishonour of Noor jehan, a police raid was made on her residence and all the furniture, tables, decorative pieces etc. , which she had taken from the sets were confiscated and the court fined her also.

Thus Vyas did not keep quiet when it was his turn and taught a lesson to Noor jehan and Shaukat Hussain.

Writer Mohanlal Dave was closely associated with the films of Vyas. In almost all of his films, Dave was the story, dialogue and s/p writer. Born in 1883 in Amreli district, Mohanlal Gopalji Dave studied upto 7th standard and became a Teacher on Rs. 5 p.m. salary. To try better prospects, he came to Bombay, worked in a Hotel as a waiter and then got another job. In 1905, he worked on a steamer going to karachi.

He returned to home, got married and went again to Bombay. In 1911 Maek ji Seth started Imperial and employed him to write advertisements and stories. After some time, he started earning Rs. 700 p.m. In 1917, he joined Dwarkadas Sampat for Rs. 1300 p.m. and wrote several stories for silent films.

When Kohinoor Film Company was started, he was contracted to write 2 stories per month. At the same time, he got from Ardeshir irani’s Imperial 30,000 per year to write stories for silent films.This went on for 6 years. In those days his name used to be shown above the titles of Kohinoor films, as per ‘ Encyclopedia of indian Cinema’.

His stories must have had Magic, because most films written by him became hits and his demand increased. Initially he teamed up with Director naqndlal Jaswantlal. From 1918 to 1933, he wrote more than 150 film stories for Silent films. When Talkie started, he worked for Jayant Desai, Imperial, Nagina, Pushpa and especially Sunrise Pictures of V.M.Vyas. he must have written more than 150 Talkie stories.

He was famous among the older stars and they honoured him too. He always used to wear Dhoti , a long shirt and a Pagdi. From his earnings of 50 years, he bought a huge plot in Santacruz, Bombay and build a very big Bungalow named ” Master Bhawan”. He also opened a Jewellery shop which ran for 20 years. He had 1 son and 2 daughters.

His social work and social service was well known in the field of education and promotion of Sanskrit. Anandilal poddar school of Santacruz, Mumbai is established by hi. He also established many schools, libraries, Temples etc. The speciality of his film stories was that they included Camera Movements, Fade outs etc. Secondly, his most Talkie films were repeats of his silent film stories. He also wrote Gujarati film stories. After retirement , he suffered from Cancer. Operation cured him but a fall gave him fractures. He was hospitalised but died on 20-12-1969.

1941 was the first year in the second decade of the Talkie Era and it was the beginning of the emergence of a New film industry. When Talkie started in 1931, for many years after that, the films were made by the people who had done work in the Silent films. These films had a spill over for the silent era artistes. Once the films started talking,most silent artistes who could not speak Hindi or Urdu automatically disappeared. Thus started the influx of new actors who could speak Hindi and sing songs, in whatever way they could. Intelligent directors like V Shantaram,Bhavnani, Sohrab Modi, Chandulal Shah, Himanshu Rai, B N Sircar, L V Prasad and a host of Gujarati directors understood that the Talkie needs a different treatment than silent films. Music directors from stage dramas tried their hand in composing film music.

In the next 8-9 years, there was a perceptible change in the film making, acting, singing, and composing music in the films that were made. Quality artistes from the silent era continued for some more years – finally giving way to the new artistes. The 30s and the 40s mostly differed in film music and story contents. The new blood composers like Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra, Naushad, Ghulam Haider, K Datta, Hansraj Behl, Bulo C Rani, Gyan Dutt and many more replaced the Parsi, Marathi and Gujarati drama music to more acceptable lilting songs. Many musical films were made and some everlasting songs were composed by these people. At the end of the 40’s decade one more major change in the film industry took place due to Partition. More about it when we discuss a song from 1951 in coming times. Let us see some important films.

Sasural and Ummeed were 2 films in which Noorjehan senior acted and sang. Hoiwever these films usually included in filmography of Malika E Tarannum Noor jehan.

Today’s song is sung by Vatsala Kumthekar. Her end was very tragic. VATSALA KUMTHEKAR’s family was originally from Goa, but they shifted to Bombay. She was born in 1909. After primary education she started training under Ustad Barkat ali khan-the elder brother of Bade Ghulam Ali khan.

She became an expert in Thumri singing and started mehfil singing when she was just 16-17.She had a terrific voice which would mystify the listeners. She used to sing in various cities all over India. She got offers to act in Marathi and Hindi films.

She was living with Sheth Ibrahim but he left her for another woman. Then he came back to her and she also accepted him till he died. Then she lived alone. Her financial and mental condition became very bad.

When her Sheth died, She became mad, shaved her head and roamed on Bombay streets begging. one day she was found dead on a bridge. She was cremated by BMC as an unclaimed, unidentified person, but someone from the crowds recognised her and her story came to be known.

Lyrics

Mangal gaao ri
mandap chhaao ri
Mangal gaao ri
mandap chhaao ri
usha bani hai bahuraani
usha bani hai bahuraani
Mangal gaao ri
mandap chhaao ri
usha bani hai bahuraani
usha bani hai bahuraani

shubh din aaya aanand chhaaya
shubh din aaya aanand chhaaya
sukh sampat ka darshan paaya
sukh sampat ka darshan paaya
Mangal gaao ri
mandap chhaao ri
usha bani hai bahuraani
usha bani hai bahuraani

howe mubaarak
howe salaamat
howe mubaarak

jug jug jeewe pooton khele
jug jug jeewe pooton khele
raani raaj chalaawe
raani raaj chalaawe
raaja raani
Ram aur Seeta
raaja raani
Ram aur Seeta
Radhe Kanhaiyya
Radhe Kanhaiyya
Radhe Kanhaiyya
Radhe Kanhaiyya
Mangal gaao ri
mandap chhaao ri
usha bani hai bahuraani
usha bani hai bahuraani

shubh din aaya aanand chhaaya
shubh din aaya aanand chhaaya
sukh sampat ka darshan paaya
sukh sampat ka darshan paaya
Mangal gaao ri
mandap chhaao ri
Mangal gaao ri
mandap chhaao ri
usha bani hai bahuraani
usha bani hai bahuraani
