Missing Films of 1960s – 58
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1966 and 1967 appears to be very fertile years, as far as discovering obscure films and songs is concerned. I start searching for the films from these years, and I continue finding films and songs that seem to have been lost in time. A good number of them have already appeared online in one form or another. But there is still a good set that seem to be as yet unavailable online.

Today’s film – ‘Sheba And Hercules’ from 1967, is one of them. After some earlier comments from some readers on the blog and also some followers on YouTube, which corrected my statement about the song being posted for the first time, I try to be more cautious, and apply more effort to search the song before posting. So for this song today, I searched using many different options, but I am not able to trace any song of this film online. But I do not claim that the song is making a debut online, because I have been held in error of such statements before. So I will say that as far as my searches could show, I did not find this film and this song online as yet.

The name of the film itself indicates an obscure and a lost film. As dear Arun ji has also noted in one of his articles earlier, we can depend on the producers of Hindi films to create links across histories and across geographies; even to the extent of combining factual history and fictional characters. This endeavor to connect and to integrate disparate persona, events and aeons, is really ‘commendable’ – these producers and these films are working towards not just national integration, but also international integration. These producers deserve a big applause for their effort. 🙂

Case in point is this film. I am going by the title – since I have no clue as to the content and the storyline of the film. Hercules is a Roman God whose stories are part of the Roman Mythology. Incidentally, in Greek mythology also, a similar Hero/God appears, with a slightly altered name – Heracles. There are many similarities in the stories of these two, across these two cultures.

Queen Sheba is very much a historical persona, whose details are found in Biblical history, and from there connects are found in Jewish and Islamic history also. There is archaeological evidence that also supports this historical records. Sheba was the Queen of the kingdom of Saba – area in the southern Arabic peninsula that is current day Yemen. Her historical record is contemporaneous with King Solomon, who was the king of Israel in circa 970-931 BC. There is a detailed record of Queen Sheba’s visit to Israel, accompanied by a grand retinue, and of bringing many gifts of spices, dry fruits and other items, loaded on camels. The Jewish history records that the spices brought by Queen Sheba were of the type never seen and used before in Israel. There is a record of their conversations, in which Sheba asks many questions from Solomon, who is considered to be the wisest man who ever lived on this earth. After being satisfied with the answers she receives, she returns to her lands. Historians have recorded this visit as one of the earliest examples of a trade and cultural exchange delegation going from one nation to another.

But I digress. The point I am trying to arrive at is the these two mythological / historical personae – Hercules and Sheba – could never have possibly been contemporaneous in person. However, still, the producers of Hindi films have found a happy meeting ground for these two, in the film titled ‘Sheba And Hercules’. I would request other readers and friends to please add some information about the storyline of this film.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of Meena Films, Bombay and is directed by BS Chaudhry. The star cast includes Randhawa, Vijaya Chaudhary, Indira, Heeralal, Kamal Mehra, Tuntun, Rajan Kapoor, Trilok Singh, and Saudagar Singh amongst others. Geet Kosh tells us that there are six songs in this film. All songs have been written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and the music is by a gentleman named Chandan. Now this is a name that I have not encountered before. As I tried to look through the Geet Kosh, I am not able to locate any other reference to this name as a music director. Quite likely, this person, as many others who have given music in one or two films, would probably have been an assistant music director, and then got a chance to try his hand as an independent artist. But after one outing, did not get any more work in the industry.

The singing voice in this song is of Krishna Kalle. This is a song of ‘expression of love’, in which the lady is expressing her magnanimity that she is a benefactor, and that as a favor unto him, she has fallen in love with the gentleman to whom this song is being addressed. Now that is quite a thought. 🙂

So with this song, the film ‘Sheba And Hercules’ makes a debut on our blog. And so does the music director Chandan. I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film, and the music director.

Song – Jaao Ji Tum Pe Hum Merbaan Ho Gaye  (Sheba And Hercules) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Chandan

The Yippeee film for today is the 1969 ‘Raat Ke Andhere Mein’. Belonging to the B/C grade thriller cum social category, the film is produced under the banner of Ashok Films, Bombay, and is directed by Devraj. The star cast of the film includes Dev Kumar, Sonia Sahni, Shahida, Dev Dutt, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Murad, Rajan Haksar amongst others.

The film is a variation on the traditional lost-and-found theme. The variation in this case is that a child is lost; later on he grows up to be a criminal and then found by the parents. The story line is summarized as follows,

Dev Kumar is a bad character, and is on the run from the police. He is the long lost son of Murad and Mridula Rani, who have been searching for him for years, based on the description of a locket that the child was wearing when he got separated from his parents. The child has grown up into a criminal, and actually he knows he is the son of Murad. But because he is a criminal, he refuses to go back to his parents, for the fear of bringing bad name to them. Murad and his family also suspect this to be true, but are not certain.

To reach his son, Murad plans a way to trap him, with the help of police. The criminal son is in love with Sonia Sahni. Murad arranges a stage show in which he brings Sonia Sahni to perform a dance. The plan is put in place, with the expectation that Dev Kumar will find some way or the other come to the program to watch his beloved. The expected happens. Dev Kumar enters the theatre in disguise, but then removes it once he is inside. The police inspector Rajan Haksar is watching the audience and he locates Dev Kumar. By the time the performance comes to an end, he is enters the box section where Dev Kumar is sitting, and takes him into custody. The film moves towards a happy-ending as Rajan Haksar takes the criminal Dev Kumar, not to the police station but to Murad’s residence. After all is sorted out and everybody is happy, the inspector then takes the criminal with him, saying that he will try for a pardon or a light sentence for him.

The film has five songs listed, one of which is a multi version song that appears two times in the film, once as a solo in Rafi Sb’s voice and the second time as a solo in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. The 4+1 songs already posted on the blog are listed as under,

Apne Naam Ke Kareeb Mera Bhi Naam Likh Lo 3712 30-Mar-11 Mohammed Rafi
Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchaan Jaate 5935 7-May-12 Mohammed Rafi
Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchaan Jaate 5935 7-May-12 Lata Mangeshkar
Na Jaane Peer Dil Ki Bepeer Baalma 9905 14-Jun-14 Lata Mangeshkar
Raat Ke Andhere Mein 14039 09-Feb-28 Asha Bhosle

In the Geet Kosh listing, it is indicated as if some more songs may be in the film. However, Atul ji, while posting the penultimate song of this film, had done a fast-forward review of the film, and confirms that the 5+1 songs listed in the Geet Kosh are the only songs in the film, and no more.

This is one of the very few films that Prem Dhawan has written the songs, as well as composed the music for. I have written about this in the two earlier posts of the songs of this film, listed at number 1 and number 4 above.

The songs of this film are a veritable treat for the aficionados. Almost all the songs became very popular in their time and were frequently heard on the radio waves. “Apne Naame Ke Kareeb. . .”, the two versions of “Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchan Jaate” and the stage dance song “Na Jaane Peer Dil Ki. . .” have been some the all time favorites of the listeners.

Today’s song is a duet, or maybe a so-called duet, in the voices of Rafi Sb and Usha Timothy. I say ‘so-called’, because in the song, most of the singing is done by Rafi Sb, and Usha Timothy just gets to add the words “thoda thoda” once in each refrain. So literally speaking, it is “thoda thoda” contribution by her to this song. On screen, the song is picturized on Dev Dutt and Shahida.

This song too, is a delightful offering, maybe lesser known in comparison to its more popular siblings in this film. But still a pleasure to listen to. Enjoy.

And plus let us celebrate the film ‘Raat Ke Andhere Mein’ joining the list of films with all songs posted, on the blog. Cheers.

 

Song – Hothon Pe Inkaar Thoda Thoda  (Raat Ke Andhere Mein) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Usha Timothy, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Prem Dhawan

Lyrics

oo

oo oo

o sangdil haseena
maathe pe kyon paseena
pathar bhi pighalte hai
dekha tha ye kabhi na

ke hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda
haan
hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda

itne burey hum nahin
ke aankhen churaao
katra ke yun na chalo
na daaman bachaao
ik din kisi pe to aayega dil
ik din koi le ke jaayega dil
kar lo hameen pe aitbaar
thoda thoda
haan
hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda

hota na hum se jo pyaar
to kyon sharmaate
chhup chhup ke yun meri jaan
tum milne na aate
mil ke nazar yun hi jhukti nahin
ye wo lagi hai jo chhupti nahin
tera bhi dil hai beqaraar
thoda thoda
haan
hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda

milne ki hai aarzoo
to kaisi ye doori
teri meri dastaan
rahe na adhoori
kab tak akele mera dil jaley
tadpaane waale aa lag ja galey
mil jaaye hum ko qaraar
hahn thoda thoda
haahan
hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda

ओ ओ

ओ संगदिल हसीना
माथे पे क्यों पसीना
पत्थर भी पिघलते हैं
देखा था ये कभी ना

के होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

इतने बुरे हम नहीं
का आँखें चुराओ
कतरा के यूं ना चलो
ना दामन बचाओ
इक दिन किसी पे तो आएगा दिल
इक दिन कोई लेके जाएगा दिल
कर लो हमीं पे एतबार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

होता ना हमसे जो प्यार
तो क्यों शर्माते
छुप छुप के यूं मेरी जान
तुम मिलने ना आते
मिल के नज़र यूं ही झुकती नहीं
ये वो लगी है जो छुपती नहीं
तेरा भी दिल है बेक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

मिलने की है आरज़ू
तो कैसी ये दूरी
तेरी मेरी दास्तान
रहे ना अधूरी
कब तक अकेले मेरा दिल जले
तड़पाने वाले आ लग जा गले
मिल जाये हमको क़रार
हाहं थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाहाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

Today, the 18th of July 2017, is the 5th remembrance day of one of India’s most enigmatic and exasperating film stars. You don’t need to rack your brains too much to guess who I am talking about. It should be pretty obvious – is there anyone more loved, and at the same time, more derided than Rajesh Khanna, ever in the industry? A time was when he was worshipped by hundreds of thousands, and then a time came when the weight of the crown of being the self-styled superstar, became an annoying, nay, a highly dislike-able phenomenon.

As I write out this post today, I have strong emotions attached to it.

It is a huge honour for me to write this post. I have to thank Atul for giving me the opportunity to do so.

Just a few days ago, Atul sent me an e-mail asking me if I could do a write-up for Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And of course, I immediately mailed back “Sure”. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity – it is indeed a very special occasion and a huge honour for me.
