“Heera Panna”(1973) was produced and directed by Dev Anand for Navketan Internationa Films Private Limited, Bombay. This “social” movie had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Dheeraj, Rehman, Jeewan, Paintal, Rakhi (special appearance), Sudhir, Manmohan, Shaam Kumar, Maruti, A K Hangal, Neelam, Sheetal, Dilip Dutt, Kirti Kumar, Mac Mohan, Rajrani, Madhup Sharma, Dhanna, Mohammad Ali, Chhura etc in it.

This movie had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past. Here are their details:-

Here is the fourth and final song from “Heera Panna”(1973) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman. In the song, Dev Saab is seen posing as a fashion photographer who claims to get skimpily clad females to pose for him. 🙂 I do not think too many moviegoers were convinced when the movie was released. Dev Saab and Rahman made their debuts together in the same movie in 1946 in “Ham Sab Ek Hain”. But we find Rahman playing a middle aged man in “Heera Panna”(1973) while Dev Saab kept insisting on playing half his age, looking as unconvincing as one can be. 🙂

The very first song of the movie, viz the theme song was the most popular song from the movie as far as I was concerned. I remember all the songs from the movie though I suspect that these songs have become rather less known songs by now.

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


Song-Main tasweer utaartaa hoon (Heera Panna)(1973) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

haan
zara hans ke
zara aur khhilkhhilaa ke
steady please

main tasveer utaartaa hoon
bikhri hui haseenon ki
zulfen sanvaartaa hoon
phir zulfon ke saaye mein
main raaten guzaartaa hoon
haaye
main tasveer utaartaa hoon
bikhri hui haseenon ki
zulfen sanvaartaa hoon
phir zulfon ke saaye mein
main raate guzaartaa hoon

koi haseenaa kitni bhi magroor ho
husn ki duniya mein kitni mashhoor ho
koi haseenaa kitni bhi magroor ho
husn ki duniya mein kitni mashhoor ho
masti mein choor ho
paas ho ke door ho
arre masti mein choor ho
paas ho ke door ho
daudi chali aati hai
main jisko pukaartaa hoon
main tasveer utaartaa hoon

chaand ki bhi na padi jinpe kiran
maine dekhe un haseenon ke badan
chaand ki bhi na padi jinpe kiran
maine dekhe un haseenon ke badan
meraa aisa hai chalan
jaane jaan o jaaneman
tod ke saare parde
main sabko nihaartaa hoon
main tasveer utaartaa hoon
haay bikhri hui haseenon ki
zulfen sanwaartaa hoon
phir zulfon ke saaye mein
main raaten guzaartaa hoon

thhak ke saahil pe samandar so gayaa
yaad teri aa gayi
main kho gayaa
thhak ke saahil pe samandar so gayaa
yaad teri aa gayi
main kho gayaa
ye gayaa
main wo gayaa
ye mujhe
kya ho gayaa
ye gayaa
main wo gayaa
ye mujhe kya ho gayaa
naam tera leta hoon
main jisko pukaartaa hoon

Todays song is from an old film of the 30s – ‘Sunehara Sansar- from 1936.

Songs from films made in the 30s are difficult to find.If you find a song of a film of your choice, you are a lucky person. Sometimes, as a fluke, such songs are encountered and your day is made. Luckily, there are collectors from India and Pakistan, who collect songs from various sources and upload them on You Tube for the benefit of music lovers and history students. Since no collector ever discloses his sources, it is difficult to know from where the song has been taken. Actually it hardly matters as long as it is not used for commercial purpose. Such 70-80 year old songs are no one’s personal property in any case, once they are on public domain. The uploaders are also aware of it.

We are thankful to many uploaders like Shri Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji of Jodhpur, Shalin Bhat ji in the US, Javed Rsjs ji and many more such kind and helpful souls who serve the interest of Film music history, by making old rare songs available to music lovers and writers. Our own Sudhir ji, Atul ji and Sadanand ji too upload such rare songs. God Bless Them all. Today’s song is uploaded by Shalin Bhat ji.

The song is from a film made by East India Film Co. of Calcutta. In those days, the name Calcutta was synonymous with New Theatres, in the film world. New Theatres is a Golden Chapter in the Indian Film History. Established by BN Sircar in 1930, NT was not just a commercial entity, but an institution which strengthened the foundation of film making in India. Sircar established systems and discipline in film shootings. He was an engineer from London. Son of a very famous and rich Advocate General of Bengal, Sircar was a soft spoken but a firm personality. Being rich himself, he had no problem in building a well equipped company, without making a compromise on quality – both in in terms of machinery and people.

Most other studio owners like V Shantaram, Mehboob, Chandulal Shah, Sohrab Modi, SS Wassan, Guru Dutt, Raj Kapoor etc. took over as company’s film director, but not Sircar. He had a strong line up of capable directors like PC Barua, Hem Chander, Debaki Bose, Nitin Bose, Premankur Attorthy, Phani Mujumdar etc. He never ever interfered with directors choices of actors or work. Remaining in the background, he ensured shootings as per schedule.

NT was like a family. It ran on systems. It became a way of life for people working in it. Since its establishment in 1930, competition increased consistently, in the number of film producing companies in Calcutta. By 1938, there were 18 Production houses in Calcutta alone. They were – Arora Film Co., Shri Bharat Laxmi Pictures, Chitramandir RBS Prodn, Dev-Dutt films, East India Film Co., Indua Movietone, Kali Films, Kamala Talkies, Maadan Theatres, New Popular Pictures, Moti Mahal Theatres, Murli Pictures, Quality Pictures, Radha Film Co., Sonoray Picture Syndicate, Sunrise Film Co., and Tollywood Studio. Interesting point is, Bombay film industry came to be known as Bollywood many decades after this Calcutta studio – Tollywood – which continues till today for Bangla Film industry.

After 1939, the second world war created problems for NT. On one hand raw film shortage and  severe competition and on the other hand ego clashes of the stalwarts and exodus from the company plagued NT. PC Barua was the first to leave,in 1940, to restart his own studio. One by one people started leaving. From 1942 to 1947, many important actors, directors and technicians left NT and went to Bombay. During its existence, NT created an all time record as a company. It had produced  177 films as against the nearest competitor – Ranjit Studios of Bombay, with 175 films (as per Cine Advance issue dated 5th Dec 1980).

During the Golden period of NT, Debaki Bose made a Bangla film ‘Sonar Sansaar’ in 1936. The same was also made in Hindi as ‘Sunehra Sansaar’. During the period 1934 to 1936, Debaki Bose worked for East India Film Co. His film, ‘Seeta’ (1934) won the Honorary Diploma in Venice Film Festival and his last film there was ‘Sunehra Sansaar’ (1936). After this Debaki Bose (who gave the name ‘Kumar’ to actor Syed Ali Hasan Zaidi of film ‘Puran Bhagat’ (1933) returned to NT for the period from 1937 to 1941. He then left NT to start his own production company.

The East India Film Company was based in Calcutta, Bengal Presidency, Bitish India. It was the first Indian film company to screen a movie at an international Film Festival. Started in 1932 in Calcutta, by RL Khemka, it went on to be a pioneer in producing films across several regional film industries, including Bengali, Hindi, Urdu, Telugu, and Tamil in the decade after its founding; till then, production companies were restricted regionally.

The company was formed in 1932 by RL Khemka, a local Marwari businessman in Bengal after acquiring the RCA Photophone studio, its location recording equipment, and its Mitchell cameras. In 1933, East India Film Company’s first Bengali film production, ‘Jamuna Puline’ was released. The director was Priyanath Ganguli, who had joined here after leaving Maadan Theatres. Riding on its success, the company became the first Bengali studio to venture into not just Hindi films, but also various films in South Indian languages. East India Film Company was soon producing a dozen movie releases per year, including several hits like ‘Savitri’ (Telugu) and ‘Ramayan’ (Tamil).

The East India Film Company’s ‘Seeta’, made by Debaki Bose, was the first talkie shown in an international film festival. It was shown in 1934 at the Venice Film Festival where it won an Honorary Diploma. Subsequently, Bose also made his noted film, ‘Sonar Sansaar’ (Hindi: ‘Sunhera Sansaar’) in 1936 under the East India Film Company banner.

Shot in Calcutta on a lavish budget of Rs.75,000, East India Film Company’s ‘Savitri’ in Telugu was a huge hit. Based on a popular stage play by Mylavaram Bala Bharathi Samajam, the film was directed by debutant C Pulliah and starred stage stalwarts Vemuri Gaggiah and Dasari Ramthilakam as Yama and Savitri, respectively. Like ‘Seeta’, this film was also shown in Venice Film Festival, where it too won an Honorary Diploma.

Film ‘Sunehra Sansaar’ had 21 songs, all written by its hero – Vijay Kumar, BA. [Author Notr: I have written about him in my post “Tan Prem Ki Raakh Lagaa Kar Ke“on 31-1-2018). The cast of the film was Vijay Kumar, Rampyari, Menaka Devi (her first film in Calcutta), Kamla Jharia, Azuri, Mazhar Khan, Gul Hamid, KN Singh (his debut film) and others.

Like several common feminine names in those days – Zebunnisa, Zubeida, Khursheed, Zohra, Amirbai, Gauhar, Radharani, Menaka, Noorjehan, Yasmin, Vimala etc, there were common male names too. One of them was Hamid. It was prefixed and suffixed by Gul, Ali, Syed etc. For example, actor Ajit’s real name was Hamid Ali and actor singer Shyam Kumar was Syed Gul Hamid Ali. I remember, once when I wrote about Shyam Kumar and his real name, our Sudhir ji had queried if he and the actor Gul Hamid were same. I had informed him that they were different.

Today we will know more about this actor Gul Hamid, who acted in many films in the 30s and died very young at 31 years only. He was a handsome young man from Peshawar. After starting his film career from Lahore, he moved to Calcutta where he worked in more than a dozen of silent films and talkies. Some of his films were made in Bombay too. He had many honors to his credit. He acted in Heer Ranjha, the first film produced in Punjabi and in Seeta, a talkie that won an Honorary Diploma in the 1934 Venice Film Festival. That was also the first Indian film shown at an International film festival. Hamid also wrote the script, acted in, and directed the film Khyber Pass (1936). 

Gul Hamid was born in 1905 in Pirpiai, a village near the Kabul River in the North West Frontier Province of British India (now in Pakistan). His father was Saif Ullah Khan. Gul Hamid Khan had three brothers named Abdul Hameed Khan, Gul Jamal Khan and Sayed Jamal Khan. Gul Hamid Khan was married to Patience Cooper (later Sabra Begum) from 1930–1936, one of the first early silent movie actresses.

He became an all-India celebrity when AR Kardar cast him in his hit movie. It is said that the movie industry never again saw an actor with Gul Hamid’s looks. He made his film debut with Sarfarosh alias Brave Hearts in 1930, which was a silent movie made in Lahore and directed by AR Kardar. In 1931, his films Aatishe Ishq and Wandering Dancer were released. Gul Hamid also had the honour of working in the first ever Punjabi feature film Heer Ranjha released in 1932. This film was made in Lahore and directed by AR Kardar. In 1933, his film Yahudi Ki Ladki was released based on Agha Hashar Kashmiri‘s stage play by the same name. His other films released in 1934 were ChandraguptMumtaz BegumSultana and Night Bird.

1935 was the richest year of Gul Hamid’s career as many of his films were released in it. In Bharat Ki Beti (1935), his heroine was Rattan Bai.  His other notable talkie films in 1935 were Sauteli BadruhiSaleema  and  MurdererYasmin was also released the same year in which his name was Behram. As per records, only three films were released in 1936 i.e. ‘Sunehra Sansaar’, Baghi Sipahi and Khyber Pass.  Khyber Pass was the film in which he not only acted but also wrote its script and directed it. He worked with his wife, Patience Cooper, in three films i.e., Baghi Sipahi, ‘Murderer’ (1935) and Khyber Pass. He died  in 1936 due to a throat ailment.(Hodgekin’s Disease).

The story of film Sunehara Sansar-36, as outlined in Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, is as follows,

This is a parable about human suffering and capitalist enterprise. The village headman has the bandits attack house of Ramesh to settle an old dispute. His wife Roma is kidnapped and infant son is abandoned in a forest. Years later, Roma works as a nurse to a kind millionaire and her son Raghunath lives with other unemployed youths, in a nearby house. They all dream about starting a Soap Factory. The father has become a beggar in that town only. No one is aware about others. Changed circumstances bring the family together and the kind millionaire helps to set up the Soap Factory.

Today’s song is composed by KC Dey, but the singer is not known. I presume it is Vijay kumar only. So, here is a song from an 80+ year old film. Surprisingly, the song is clear.

Blog Day : 3501 Post No. : 14065

Missing Films of 1960s – 59
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

So, on the 3501st day on this blog, I introduce to you the debut film for today.

The film is ‘Sardaar’ from 1967. This year continues to be very fertile, and still another four, and maybe five more films from this year are next in line.

The production banner is M.U.N. films Bombay, and the film is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The film is categorized as a costume drama, with the cast of actors listed as Dara Singh, Sheikh Mukhtar, Ajit, Nishi, Helen, Jayant, Chandrashekhar, Tiwari, Maruti, Arvind Pandya, and Jeevankala. Now this is a very impressive ensemble – we have Sheikh Mukhtar, and Dara Singh, and Ajit, and Chandrashekhar, and Nishi, and Helen, and Jayant, and Tiwari – wow.

The film has seven songs listed. All the songs are written by Asad Bhopali, and the music is composed by Usha Khanna. As I scan the list of songs, some are very familiar and popular songs, and I wonder this film has managed to stay away from being represented on our blog so far.

Today’s song is about the memories of childhood love. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Once you start listening to the song, I am sure the memory cells will respond – ok, well this one, yes, it is a familiar favorite from the radio listening days. Enjoy.

Song – Mera Tumhara Afsaana Hai Kitna Puraana  (Sardaar) (1967) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo
mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

kyon ji tumko yaad to hongi
pehli pehli pyaar ki baaten
pehli pehli pyaar ki baaten
chhoti si ik bhool pe laakhon
hoti then taqraar ki baaten
hoti then taqraar ki baaten
mera wo rooth ke jaana
tumhaara manaana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

din mein sau sau baar tumhaare
paas aane ko ji kehta hai
paas aane ko ji kehta hai
in aankhon mein daal ke aankhen
kho jaane ko ji kehta hai
kho jaane ko ji kehta hai
chhod ke dil tadpaana
mohabbat nibhaana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना
है कितना पुराना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो

मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना

क्यों जी तुमको याद तो होंगी
पहली पहली प्यार की बातें
पहली पहली प्यार की बातें
छोटी सी इक भूल पे लाखों
होती थीं तक़रार की बातें
होती थीं तक़रार की बातें
मेरा वो रूठ के जाना
तुम्हारा मनाना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो

दिन में सौ सौ बार तुम्हारे
पास आने को जी कहता है
पास आने को जी कहता है
इन आँखों में दाल के आँखें
खो जाने को जी कहता है
खो जाने को जी कहता है
छोड़ के दिल तड़पाना
मोहब्बत निभाना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो

मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना
है कितना पुराना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना

Blog Day : 3500 Post No. : 14064

3500 – a good number to be. It is divisible by 7. Gives us 500.

Lets take a stock of the major numbers.

We complete 3500 days – unbroken sequence (almost 😉 ).
500 weeks.
14,000+ songs.

And, for the ticker watchers, we are just going to touch 10,100,000 visits to this blog.

In terms of artist stats, some very interesting total numbers,

486 – Music Directors + 109 posts with [*Unattributed] MD status
659 – Lyricists + 402 posts with [*Unattributed] Lyricist status
870 – Singers + 93 posts with unidentified singer names

Keeping out the unattributed and the unidentified, we are managing a whopping total of 2015 unique artists

I have written this phrase before. Our blog is history in the making – history of Hindi film music – one song at a time.

In terms if format, in terms of depth of content, in terms of dealing earnestly and critically with the subject matter, this blog is unique and without any peers. We are close to completing 10 years. Even now, we periodically get to see reader’s comments that tell about recently having discovered this hallowed destination on the internet, and what a fantastic treasure they have encountered. In fact, we have one such comment that came in today, just about four and a half hours ago. Paraphrasing from the text of this comment, a new reader Jayant Raleraskar writes that “. . . that’s a Great contribution indeed. In fact I am a new visitor to Atulsong. Of course I am enjoying and getting nice information as well.” Today, 3500 days after its inception, we still continue to get new readers who are impressed enough to leave such a heartening and an encouraging comment.

And the march continues. Ah yes, it is the next coming month also; but I refer to the dogged insistent forward journey that has been in progress for 3500 days today. The pun is on the word March. By the way, are you familiar with the best pun on ‘March’. It is a tiny two liner

“Can February March?
No, but April May.”

😀  😀  😀

Great journey so far. A grand motley crew of loving friends assembled on the bandwagon. And on towards the horizon – many a thousand more stations still to be covered on this beat. Maybe someone may ask us some day – why we do it? Brings to mind a similar incident from the mountaineering past. George Mallory, the famed young British climber who was part of the first three (unsuccessful) expeditions to conquer Mt Everest, in the 1920s. Mallory is famously quoted as having replied to the question “Why did you want to climb Mount Everest?” with the retort “Because it’s there”, which has been called “the most famous three words ever in mountaineering”.

Well, I think our answer may not be limited to these three words. The answer by us would be – “Because it is there, and we love it”.  🙂 🙂

And on this journey, we continue to discover, almost on a daily basis, something new and surprising about the Hindi film music.

Take today’s song for example. Yesterday when Atul ji and I exchanged emails about today being the 3500th daily anniversary of this endeavor, I thought about it, and then started searching for a song with the word ‘hazaar’ in it. After checking out a few examples, I settled on this song for this post today.

ek shama hai mehfil mein
parwaane hazaaron hain

or if I may take some poetic latitude here, I would like to surmise as

ek asad hai internet mein
padhne waale hazaaron hain

And the other reason I picked this song – aah well, I am sure some of you may have already guessed. Going thru the lyrics of this Geeta Dutt beauty from 1952, folks will find a suspicious shadow falling on to another iconic song from three decades later. Yes, I refer to the famous song from ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981) –

in aankhon ki masti ke
mastaane hazaaron hain

In fact, not just mastaane, but also deewaane and maikhaane. Just take away the music and map the lyrics. I think we may have hit upon the original song that ‘inspired’ the famous hit song of ‘Umrao Jaan’.

The 1952 film ‘Baghdad’ is produced by JB Lulla, under the banner of Falcon Films, Bombay and is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The star cast is listed as Ranjan, Bharti, Yashodhara Katju, Anwar, Veera, Kamal, Samson, S Nazeer, Kanta, Nagpal, Anant Prabhu, Bhupen Kapoor, Habib, Sabu (Tattoo), and Bhagwan. The eight songs of this film are penned by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, and the music is by Bulo C Rani.

Congratulations once again to all – milestones galore. Happy 3500th to all.

Song – Ek Shama Hai Mehfil Mein Parwaane Hazaaron Hain  (Baghdad) (1952) Singer – Geeta Roy, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Bulo C Rani

“Raakhi” (1962) was produced by Siva H Ganeshan and it directed by a Bhimsingh for Prabhuram Pictures, Madras. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Waheeda Rehman, Pradeep Kumar, Mehmood, Ameeta, Malika, Lalita Pawar, Raj Mehra, Randhir, Madan Puri, Shivraj, Mohan Choti, Umesh Sharma etc in it.

This movie had one theme song dedicated to the festival of Rakhi. But other songs of the movie were more or less wedding related songs. So “Shaadi” could have been as good a title as any for this movie. 🙂 One movie of this titles was actually made that year, so may be the makers of this movie were forced to use an alternative title. 🙂

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details.

Here is the eighth and final song from “Raakhi” (1962) to appear in the blog. This song is a post wedding song sung from nanad’s point of view. The song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is lip synced by Waheeda Rehman playing nanad for Ameeta playing the bhaabhi married to Ashok Kumar.

The audio version of the song differs somewhat from the video version towards the last few lines.

With this song, “Raakhi” (1962) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Song-Kab tak bol gori aise sharmaayegi (Raakhi)(1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

Blog Day : 3500 Post No. : 14061

Today is Friday, 16 february 2018. It is just another day. But trust us to find something remarkable even out of seemingly routine matters. Today is a special day for the blog. It is the 3500th day for the blog.

It follows that the blog has seen 34 such occasions in the past as well. But we took notice of such kind of centuries for the first time only last year on 8 november 2017 when it was the 3400th day for the blog.

A quick mental calculation would show that there are 365 days in a year and so ten years have 3650 days (decimal system zindabaad ! 🙂 ). Add two additional days for two leap years. So the blog will turn one decade old or 3652 days old in another 152 days from now, on 19 july 2018 !

Another quick mental calculation would reveal that 3500 x 4= 14000. The blog has 14060 songs posts as of now. So it turns out that the blog is going on at a strike rate of just over four songs a day for 3500 days !

When a blog lasts this long and adds so many articles to it, then one is able to reel off quite a few statistics associated with it. I find that the blog by now has songs from as many as 3835 movies. As many as 1080 of these movies have already been YIPPEED ! So we no longer need to search for any additional songs for these 1080 movies because all of them have already been accounted for.

In the process of discussing songs, many artists have completed their own milestones in the blog. 35 music directors, 28 lyricists and 21 singers have more than one hundred songs each in the blog. Some of them in fact have their songs running into thousands in the blog.

There are a few artists who have almost all their songs covered in the blog. All available songs of K L Saigal, Suraiyya and Sajjad Hussain are showcased in the blog. Artists like Naushad, O P Nayyar, S D Burman, Madan Mohan, Talat Mehmood etc have less than 100 songs each left to be covered in the blog.

The blog is a great example of the power of online collaboration of likeminded individuals. All these individuals are making valuable contributions through their articles, lyrics, comments, suggestions etc. Some of these contributors have completed their own centuries in the blog.

The kind of skill sets that our contributors possess for the cause of HFM can be the envy of many professional set ups. We have contributors who are like research scholars and their original researches in the field of HFM have helped add to the information in the field of HFM.

The thing that pleases me most is the fact that we all feel like a group of people close to each other. Some of us have actually met each other and continue to meet each other from time to time. We have got to know each other quite closely and we often share in the joys and sorrow of each other.

I have a feeling that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg as far as our work in the field of HFM is concerned. The real extent of the iceberg has not yet been revealed. Lots of valuable background information and statistics pertaining to HFM have been collected during this nearly one decade long journey and that information has not yet appeared in the blog.

On the occasion of the blog touching 3500 days, here is a joie de vivre genre of song from “Shatranj” (1956). This song, the sixth out of eight songs from the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Sheila Vaz and others. The lead pair of Ashok Kumar and Meena Kumari are also visible in the picturisatoon as spectators.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra. He points out that one line in the audio version differs from the video version. Trust Prakashchandra to be able to differentiate between such fine details. 🙂

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ऐ’ – ऐ चाँद तू देना गवाही

कहाँ आवाज़ दें तुमको कहाँ हो

सिर्फ एक गीतों का ही तो आसरा है॰ ॰ ॰ और कहाँ आवाज़ दें तुमको, ना जाने किस जहान् में चले गए॰ ॰ ॰

We arrive at the sixth episode of this series – a lively duet from the 1963 film ‘Holiday In Bombay’.

As I look at the blog statistics, the number of Rafi Sb – Asha Bhosle duets currently stands at 496, prior to this post. These are strictly duet songs. I make this specific distinction because there are another 20 songs in the blog, in which this pair is accompanied by one or more other voices. They are singing together but essentially not is a pure duet format.

‘Holiday In Bombay’ is a film produced under the banner of Yugchhaaya, and is directed by PL Santoshi. The list of actors in this film is, Shashi Kapoor, Vijaya Chaudhary, Rajendra Nath, Naseem Banu, Dhumal, P Kailash, Ulhas, Randhir, Sulochana Chatterjee, Rajan Haksar, Jeevankala, Ram Kumar, Renu Maakad, Heera Sawant, Kundan, BB Bhalla, D Dileep, Nazeer Kashmiri, Hublikar, and Lakshmi Chhaaya.

Geet Kosh lists eight songs for this film written by four songwriters – Anand Bakshi, Anjaan, PL Santoshi and Anwar Farrukhabaadi. This particular song is penned by Anwar. The music direction is by N Datta.

Although the complete film is available online, the video clip of this song is not. I request other folks who might have seen this film, to please add more information about the picturization of this song.

Song – Ae Chanda Tu Dena Gawaahi (Holiday In Bombay) (1963) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anwar Farrukhabaadi, MD – N Dutta

ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

gungunaane lagin aaj tanhaaiyaan
baj rahi hain kahin door shehnaaian
gungunaane lagin aaj tanhaaiyaan

ae sitaaro hanso

geet chheda hai jaati hui shaam ne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

raat ke haath mein chaand ka phool hai
ye koi khwaab hai ya koi bhool hai
raat ke haath mein chaand ka phool hai
ye koi khwaab hai ya koi bhool hai
dil ko mehka diya
hum ko behka diya
teri aankhon ke rangeen paighaam ne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

Here is the fifth and final song from “Jyoti” (1969) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The song is picturised as a Lord Krishn bhajan song on Nivedita and her kid. Her kid is shown growing up as the bhajan progresses and by the time the last stanza appears, the kid grows up to become baby Sarika who(she plays the son, I think) joins Nivedita in singing the last stanza of the bhajan. Sanjeev Kumar, not quite as god fearing as his adarsh bhartiya naari wife, is seen tearing his hair apart at all this bhajan singing. 🙂

With this song, “Jyoti” (1969) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Blog Day : 3499 Post No. : 14058

The song found me, literally, and bowled me back into my childhood, into the radio listening days, and this seldom heard lullaby that simply takes you into a dreamland. One of those songs in which the words, the music and the rendition comes together a such a perfect blend that listening to it, the world disappears, and for a while it is just yourself with the song and the music.

I was actually planning another 1960s film for debut and was searching online for posted songs for a film that I had identified. Without any preamble or focused thought, I just stumbled into this song. Nothing else struck me, except the first five words, that resonated with a long dormant memory somewhere deep in time. And without a notice, this song was upon me.

The film is lost and forgotten. I myself have not seen it. Actually when I heard this song originally, I had no clue as to the film or other details. It is only today that this connection is made. The film is ‘Daak Bangla’ from 1974. A film that has been produced and directed by Girish Ranjan. This is one of the new wave cinema that was starting out in the early to mid 1970s. The star cast is listed as Simi Garewal, Shubhendu Chatterjee, Nitin Sethi, Geeta Siddharth, Bhagwan Sahu, Ramesh, Lalita Kumari, Rasheeda Thakur, Satyabhan Sinha, Gunaji, Shriniwas Tripathi, Master Neelabh Kaul, Master Prem, Baby Aparna Mudgal, Prabhat Kumar, and Iftekhar.

The film has just two songs, both come from the pen of Anjaan. This song being a lullaby, the other song, from the words, seems like a folk song, in the voice of the same singer. Music is by Shyam Saagar. When I first read this name, I thought I am familiar with this music director. Our dear Bharat ji has posted a few non-film songs of Suman Kalyanpur, composed by him. But when I went in to check, it turns out that the music director whose song are posted by Bharat Bhai, his name is Shyam Sharma. So the music director of this wonderful soothing lullaby makes his debut on our blog also. As I checked the Geet Kosh, I find Shyam Saagar’s name appear in a few more films in the 1970s.

The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur. When I first located this song, I was tempted to hold back this song for her birthday, but on checking the anniversaries list, I find that we have just passed her birthday on 28th Jan. And so I decided not to wait for 2019 for this wonderful song to come board.

The song starts off as a lullaby, and then it also transforms into a song of regretful past. A lonely poignancy takes over the emotions as the song proceeds. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add some more information, if available, about the film story, and this song.

The recording is a little skippy, but I am able to piece together all words, checking back and forth across the lines that get repeated. However, there is one line, indicated by ((?? ?? ?? ??)) in the lyrics, which I have not been able to decipher. It is three or four words, and I could not make them out. I request other readers and listeners to please help decipher this line.

A wonderful heart warming song, sung so smoothly. It seems to flow over the senses like slow moving honey. I have simply fallen in love with this song all over again. 🙂

[Ed Note: – This is the second movie of Shyam Saagar in the blog. He has already appeared in the blog with a song from the film ‘Pal Do Pal Ka Saath’ (1978).]

Song – Palak Hindole Chadhi Re Nindiya  (Daak Bangla) (1974) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Shyam Saagar

जुग जुग जागी ये
अनसोई रैन
हम्म हम्म
अनसोई रैन
पालक हिंडोले चढ़ी रे नींदिया
अलसाए नैन
हम्मम्म

आकाश गंगा की
सपनीली लहरों पे
झिलमिल सितारों वाली नाव
आएगी आके तुझे
संग लेके जाएगी रे
सतरंगे सपनों के द्वार
ओ मेरे अपने
झूठे हैं सपने
सपना जो रूठे
निंदिया जो टूटे
भीगें ना नैन
भीगें ना नैन
तुझको सुलाये
जुग जुग जागी ये
अनसोई रैन
अनसोई रैन
पलक हिंडोले चढ़ी रे नींदिया
अलसाए नैन
हम्मम्म
तुझको सुलाये
जुग जुग जागी ये
अनसोई रैन
हम्म हम्म
अनसोई रैन

काँटों के वन में
इक राह भूली
काँटों के वन में
इक राह भूली
पागल हवा सी ज़िंदगी
सागर से बिछड़ी
मरुथल में खोई
प्यासी नदी मैं प्यार की
राहों में खोये
सपनों के मेले
सुलगे धुआँ सा
ये मन अकेले
पाये ना चैन
पाये ना ॰ ॰ ॰
