Missing Films of 1960s – 65
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Back to hunting in the 1960s once again. ‘Mr Murder’ from 1969 is as rare and obscure as one can think of. This very sweet melody is already published on YouTube, only partially though. I am uploading the more complete version today.

The film ‘Mr Murder’ is produced under the banner of Bundelkhand Films, Bombay and is directed by NA Ansari. The main star cast is listed as Naqi Jahan, Krishan Mehta, Ansari, Chand Usmani, and Rajan Kapoor.

The five songs in this film have been composed by the music director duo of Sonik Omi. Sonik Omi had made their debut as a team three years earlier in 1966, with the musically successful ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’  ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ (1966). After that, this film in 1969 is just their fifth outing. The names of Shakeel Badayuni and Qamar Jalaalabaadi are listed as songwriters for this film. This song is written by Shakeel Sb.

The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. A very sweet song that should not have become as unknown as it has become. Listen and enjoy.

[Ed Note: Sonik Omi’s first film is ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ and not ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’. The correction has been made in the article. Thanks to Satyajit ji for catching the error.]

Song – Hum To Dil Jaan Dono Hi Kho Baithe  (Mr Murder) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Shakeel Badayuni, MD – Sonik Omi

Lyrics

hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

ye baharon ka mausam
ye thandi hawa
tujh se pehle mazaa in mein
kuchh bhi na tha
ye baharon ka mausam
ye thandi hawa
tujh se pehle mazaa in mein
kuchh bhi na tha
aaj har cheez mein
ik naya rang hai
pyaar ka dhang hai
tu mere sang hai
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

tum mujhe is tarah
mere dilbar miley
jaise ik pyaase panchhi ko saagar miley
tum mujhe is tarah
mere dilbar miley
jaise ik pyaase panchhi ko saagar miley
tum ko paaya to
dil ko khushi mil gayi
zindagi mil gayi
bekhudi mil gayi
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

ये बहारों का मौसम
ये ठंडी हवा
तुझसे पहले मज़ा इन में
कुछ भी ना था
ये बहारों का मौसम
ये ठंडी हवा
तुझसे पहले मज़ा इन में
कुछ भी ना था
आज हर चीज़ में
इक नया रंग है
प्यार का ढंग है
तू मेरे संग है
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

तुम मुझे इस तरह
मेरे दिलबर मिले
जैसे इक प्यासे पंछी को सागर मिले
तुम मुझे इस तरह
मेरे दिलबर मिले
जैसे इक प्यासे पंछी को सागर मिले
तुम को पाया तो
दिल को खुशी मिल गई
ज़िंदगी मिल गई
बेखुदी मिल गई
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

In the continuum of the vast annals of history, there are tales and legends in every civilization and every system of knowledge and learning, that identify the supreme importance associated with the very support system that we rest upon. In practically every system, this support system, this concept, is endowed with divine qualities – qualities that are almost always endowed with the mother, as the provider of all that is required in life, and more.

In the Greek wisdom, this concept is name as Gaia. In the Roman legends, she is called by the name Terra. In the Norse mythology, she is named as Erda. In the east, in China, she is known as Houtu or Houtushen – the Goddess Queen of Earth. In the Buddhist scriptures that span the South East Asian region, she goes by the name Phra Mae Thorani. She is worshipped as Atira or Awitelin Tsta amongst the native tribes of the Americas, who gives birth to all life. On the African continent, she is known as Odudua, the beautiful black goddess of Earth with a skin of deepest dark ebony.

In our own land and in our culture, she is known by many names, the most important ones being Bhoo Devi – that which makes possible and supports all existence, and Vasudha – the provider of all wealth and riches.

Wherever, in whichever part of the world one may seek, there is a revered acknowledgement of the divinity of the earth as the mother, and the provider of all things. If one may sit down to list all the things that we need, we desire, and we dream – other than the light energy that comes from the Sun, Moon and the stars, the life breath that is the air that swirls around us, and the waters of rain that descend from the skies – all else, and I mean everything else comes forth from the very earth that we stand upon. Our existence and sustenance is – because the earth is.

The world is celebrating today as the Earth Day. The western dogmas consider a once in a year celebration to be an adequate measure of honor and gratitude. In our belief system, it is a celebration and honor that happens on a daily basis. And we celebrate and seek blessing, not just for our family or our country, but for the entire planet as a whole.

The reminder for this celebration and the suggestion of this song came in yesterday from Avinash ji. The film name itself is so appropriate – ‘Dharti Ke Laal’ from 1946. The music is by Pt Ravi Shankar, who was later destined to be the world famous sitar player from India. No other information relating to singer(s) or songwriter is readily available.

The song is in praise and honor of Mother Earth. It is depicted as a folk song in the tradition of Bengal, being performed at the village fair. It is such a wonderful expression of veneration towards the entity that makes all life possible.

A salute to Mother Earth – today, and every day of the year.

Song – Jai Dharti Maiya Jai Ho  (Dharti Ke Laal) (1946) Singer – Unidentified Male Voice 1, Unidentified Male Voice 2, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Pt Ravi Shankar

“Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) was produced and directed by B S Ranga for Vikram Productions, Madras. This movie had Raja Sulochana, Ranjan, Sowcar Janki, Sriram, Rajagopal etc in it. It appears from the cast that this movie may have been a remake of some South Indian movie though HFGK is silent about this fact.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Shreeram Saaz is the lyricist. Music is composed by Md Shafi.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. The song sounds like a “chhaayaageet” song, best heard late at night when everyone is asleep.


Song-Ye chaand ye sitaare yoon kar rahe ishaare(Mohabbat Ki Jeet)(1960) MD-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-S R Saaz, MD-Md Shafi

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
ho ho ho ho

ye chaand ye sitaare
yoon kar rahe ishaare
kar le kisi ko apna gori
ho ja kisi ki tu
gori ho ja kisi ki tu
ye chaand ye sitare
yoon kar rahe ishare
kar le kisi ko apna gori
ho ja kisi ki tu
gori ho ja kisi ki tu
o o o o o

kehta hai man ki apna raaj aaj unse keh do
main kaise kahoon man ki lagi ek ajnabi ko
kehta hain man ki apna raaj aaj unse keh do
main kaise kahoon man ki lagi ek ajnabi ko
main bhi jawaan wo bhi jawaan
kaise kahe meri jubaan
main bhi jawaan wo bhi jawaan
kaise kahe meri jubaan
dil mein mere bas gaye hain wo o

ye chaand ye sitaare
yoon kar rahe ishare

jab ke wo hain mere paas
dil udaas kyun ho
ye dhadkanen kyun badha rahi hain
tej saans kyun ho
jab ke wo hain mere paas
dil udaas kyun ho
ye dhadkanen kyun badha rahi hain

dil mein mere bas gaye hain wo o

kuchh yaad rahe to sun kar jaa. . .

The nectar tinged fragrance of this voice suffuses through the strings of the heart through so many wonderful renderings. The mind is left amazed by the effortless expressions of the emotions covering the full spectrum of human experience. “Loot Liyo Mann Dheer. . .” is probably the only exclamation that the mind responds with, as it passed through the shower of her musical portrayals.

Kanan Devi – the doyen, the first lady of cinema in Bengal. We remember and honour her today (22nd April), on the anniversary of her birth. During her heydays in the 1930s and 40s, her popularity was so celebrated, that in those years, security had to be arranged when she moved about in public.

She was born this day in 1916, at Howrah. As per her own account, it was a very un-remarkable beginning to a tiny life, in the hands of a couple whom she knew only as her adoptive parents. Her foster father passed away quite early. She and her mother went through some difficult years, and the young Kanan Bala was not able to complete any form of formal school education.

In 1926, a family well wisher, introduced her to the management at Madon Theatres, Calcutta. Kanan was a child of 10 years. She worked in silent films and even did the male lead roles in ‘Vishnu Maya’ and ‘Prahlad’ (both in 1932). Transition from silent films to talkie films was very smooth for her. She had a good command over the spoken word and a remarkable singing talent – it only needed guidance and direction from teachers like Allah Rakha, Anaadi Dastidar, Bhishmdev Chatterjee, and yes, RC Boral.

From Madon, she moved to Radha Films in 1933. She was growing up into a beautiful and sophisticated young woman. In 1937 she transitioned to New Theatres. A regret she carried always – in 1934-35 she was offered a role in New Theatre’s ‘Devdas’ (1935), but could not accept as she was bound by her contract with Radha Films. She worked with New Theatres till 1941, and then moved to MP Productions in 1942.

After her formative years at Madon and Radha Films, her years at New Theatres and MP Productions are the most dazzling years of her career. In both organizations, her films became hugely popular hits, film after film, year after year. The music and the songs of these films made her the first lady singing superstar of Indian cinema. Her last Hindi film was ‘Chandrashekhar’ in 1948, opposite to Ashok Kumar. After this, she turned a producer in 1949, and set up her own company – Shrimati Pictures.

The song being presented today is a such lovely gem from the 1947 film ‘Faisla’. It is a duet sung in accompaniment with Aparesh Lahiri. Music is by Anupam Ghatak; the lyricist’s name is not available. Listening to this wonderful melody, brings to mind another similar song from a decade and a half later. I refer to the Talat-Lata duet from ‘Chhaaya’ (1961) – “Itna Na Mujh Se Tu Pyaar Badha, Ke Main Ik Baadal Awaara”. Although quite different songs, the mind is taken by the similarity in the theme of the song, as the gentleman professes a spirit of freedom, unencumbered by the matters of the heart, and whereas the lady expresses her desire to be together.

As the song begins, the voice of Kanan Devi flows in, giving an expression to the free spirit of the heart – a spirit like a bird that is unaware of the amorous emotions of love. Such a pleasure to listen to this voice.

Blog Day : 3564 Post No. : 14287

Today’s song is from the film ‘Kisaan Kanya’ from 1937. This movie is famous for being the first indegenuously made colour film of India, by Ardeshir Irani’s Imperial Film Company. Film pioneer Irani was also the first to make an international co-production, with Italy – the film ‘Nala Damayanti’ – a silent film of 1920. Secondly, and more importantly, he also holds the honour of making and releasing India’s first talkie film ‘Alam Ara’ in 1931. And with film ‘Kisaan Kanya’, he achieved a hat trick of ‘First in India’ credit in film making.

Ardeshir Irani was very keen to become the first to make a talkie film in India. He knew that Madon Theatres of Calcutta too were busy in making their first talkie film, with two popular stars of the day. Irani hastened the speed of his shootings and recordings. Lot of secrecy was maintained in filming the movie. From his secret sources in Calcutta, he was getting information on the progress of Madon Theatres’ film in making. He came to know that their film was to have about 20 songs in the film. Irani decided to limit the number of songs in his film to save on time. Now they would have only 7 songs. Thus he saved on many days of shootings and recordings. His film, ‘Alam Ara’ was released on 14-3-1931. Madon could only release their first talkie film ‘Shirin Farhad’ on 30-5-1931, two and a half months later !

Similarly, Irani studied why Prabhat’s first colour film ‘Sairandhri’ from 1933 failed technically. So when he planned ‘Kisaan Kanya’, he decided to do all technical processes in India. Thus his colour film came out much better than Prabhat’s film. Ashok Raj, in his book ‘Hero-I’, writes the following about Ardeshir Irani.

Irani perhaps was the world’s first multilingual film maker, having made forays into English, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, Persian, Burmese, Indonesian and Pushto. He is credited with launching the talkie era in countries like Burma, Indonesia and Iran. He made nearly 120 talkies in a span of just 8 years. He was also the first to establish a colour laboratory imported from Hollywood.

The first song from ‘Kisaan Kanya’ has recently been discussed on our blog, by our Sadanand Kamath ji, so I will not go into its details like story etc. Instead, I will discuss about 3 important persons connected with this film – namely Master Nisar, Padma Devi and Ram Gopal Pande.

Master Nisar was the most popular hero of the early talkie films. He was also one of the most highly paid stars of that era. His popularity was such – it is said that once due to a very large crowd gathered to see him, the Governor of Bengal was forced to divert his car to another road ! When Master Nisar went to Nashik for shooting Bhavnani’s film, he had to be kept closed in a room of his hotel to avoid his fans and hunters from other film companies, who would try to abduct him ! This same person, who enjoyed fame, name, money and fan following once, had to spend his last days in misery, poverty, neglect and pitiable conditions in a one room tenement in a Kamathipura chawl with few aluminum pots and a box full of photographs. During his heydays, he had learnt the art of massaging, as a hobby. This very art came to his help in his last days and he used to work as a masseur and earn few rupees sometimes.

Film historian Isak Mujawar has written in his book ‘Flashback-II’ about several instances of his later years. Here are two of them. When film ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953) was being made, Bimal Roy wanted a masseur for a scene in which the Zamindar (Ulhas) is getting a body massage. Bimal da asked his the then manager Jugal Kishore (who later on became an actor, director and producer) to bring a masseur having solid physique. When Jugal Kishore brought  a very thin, emaciated looking person, Bimal da was very upset. When Jugal Kishore told him that he was Master Nissar, Bimal da was moved and gave him the role.

Those who have seen film ‘Guddi’ (1971), there is a scene in which a lanky, thin person is massaging Om Prakash. Dharmendra tells Guddi, “Do you know who he is ? Master Nissar, one time a great actor who was popular and very rich. Film line is such that riches to rags stories are very common here”. In his final days, Nisar was seen begging on roads.

Nissar Ali Mohammed Ali was born on 5-3-1902 in Delhi. His uncle brought him to Bhopal, when he was 10 year old. Nisar started singing and acting in his uncle’s drama company for Rs. 15 pm. He learnt music from Pt. Betab and Ustaad Jhande Khan. After few roles of girls and heroines, he got a hero’s role in Agha Hashr Kashmiri’s dramas, due to his good looks, fluent Urdu and singing skill.

He joined Madon Theatres for their dramas. When Madon decided to make their drama ‘Shirin Farhad’ into a talkie film, their first choice for hero was Nisar. Jahan Ara Kajjan was called from Bhagalpur, Bihar for the heroine’s role. The pair became very popular. People became mad after Nisar’s songs. The pair proved to be a gold mine They acted in 8 films together. Their songs became a rage all over India.

Master Nisar shifted to Bombay and joined Bhavnani Films at a salary of Rs. 3000 pm, a princely sum in those days. He was the first person in the industry to own a Rolls Royce car. His heroines were many like Padma Devi, Zebunnisa, Bibbo, Haseena, Sardar Akhtar, Kanta etc. He also acted in India’s first home made colour film ‘Kisaan Kanya’ (1937). This was also his last film as a hero. In the wake of the rise of Saigal, Ashok kumar, Surendra etc., in comparison his acting was very theatrical and it paled before the newer heroes. He shifted to character roles after being a hero in 45 films. In all, he appeared in 75 films during his career. The situation came that he would take whatever role came his way.

Master Nisar married 4 times. His first wife served him lovingly till the end. He survived by doing small and sometimes even un-credited roles like extras. He was friendly with Dilip Kumar, so he got small roles in his films. His style suited qawwaalis and he featured in many well known films like ‘Azaad’, ‘Barsat Ki Ek Raat’ etc. He is seen as the on screen lead singer in the qawwaali “Aaj Kyon Hum Se Parda Hai” in the film ‘Sadhna’ (1958). The writer of the qawwaali, Sahir Ludhianvi, came across Master Nisar, begging on the roadside. On recognizing him, he immediately hugged him, and took him to the office of BR Films. He introduced him to BR Chopra, and got him the role.

Nisar was a religious person and performed Namaaz five times a day. He had no bad habits like smoking or drinking or gambling, still he spent life in penury. Being a self respecting person, he never asked for roles from anyone. Born poor, lived rich and died poor. Master Nisar died on 13-7-1980. It is said that his neighbours collected money for his burial.

One of Master Nisar’s heroines was Padma Devi in some films. She was a Bengali actress named Neelima. She made her debut in silent films with ‘Sea God’, a 1931 production from Saroj Films. She acted in about 15 silent films. While moving to the talkie films, she had difficulty with her diction and singing in Hindi language. But she overcame this with grit and determination, and learnt all this. She did all this while working in films like ‘Laal e Yaman’, ‘Kurukshetra’, ‘Prithviraj Sanyogita’ etc. (all films from 1933).

She was introduced to Baburao Patel and in no time they became ‘special friends’. Baburao cast her as a heroine in 4 films in his own Gandharva Cinetone company. She became a part of his office and personal life too. However after Susheela Rani’s entry as Baburao’s secretary, she was pushed first aside and then outside. She returned to Calcutta in 1946 and appeared in many films in character roles. She returned to Bombay in 1961 and was seen in smaller roles in Hindi films till late 1970s. Her last film seems to be in 1979.

The music for ‘Kisaan Kanya’ was composed by Ram Gopal Pande, who was variously credited as RG Pande, Ram Gopal, Ram Gopal Pandey etc. He hailed from UP. After unsuccessfully trying to become a singer, he became assistant to many well known composers and learned their methods. His first break came in 1936 with ‘Matwaali Jogan’ aka ‘A Girl From Lahore’ (directed by K Amarnath). Then he was called by Ardeshir Irani at Imperial Film Company for their first colour film. Master Nisar and Padma Devi’s songs became popular, so he was given two more films viz., ‘Mere Laal’ (1937) and ‘Vasant Bangalee’ (1938).

Then in 1938, came Mother India, ‘Actress Kyon Bani’ (1939), ‘Flying Rani’ (1939), ‘Perfect Man’ (1938), Daughters of India’ (1939) and ‘Chalti Duniya’ (1940). He was then connected with Mohan Pictures and did 10 movies for them. His last film seems to be ‘Angoorbala’ in 1947. He was left behind as his music was stage and drama type only – he did not change his style.

Today’s song is First song of Master Nisar on our blog making a debut as a singer. After hearing his singing, one can get an idea about the public taste in the early 1930s and one wonders how they became so popular. One incident of his popularity – In 1954-55, when Master Nisar was in Coimbtore for shooting of film ‘Azaad’ (1955), he along with others went to the market for shopping. There they met one lady and talk started about songs of early era. She said, “I used to like Master Nisar’s songs, but after he died, I gave up listening to songs.” All were stunned. Then Master Nisar introduced himself to her. She was so pleased that she invited all the visitors from Bombay for a party in Nisar’s honour, with the promise that in return, he had to sing for her!

Let us now enjoy Master Nisar and Padma Devi song from ‘Kisaan Kanya’. It was uploaded by Shalin Bhatt ji only on 16th March 2018. Thanks, Shalin ji.

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

aisa nagar basaaya
aisa nagar basaaya
jis mein swarg utar kar aaya
jis mein swarg utar kar aaya

aisa nagar basaaya

jahaan subeh ki kirnen aa kar
sona hans barsaayen
yahaan pe pahunche
premi bhanware
amar geet nit gaayen
chahun or sunehri gun paaya hum ne
aisa nagar basaaya
aisa nagar basaaya

is soney ke preet nagar ke
hum donon hain bhikhaari
jab tak suraj chaand rahenge
tab tak preeti hamaari
aisa vardaan hai paaya hum ne
aisa nagar basaaya
aisa nagar basaaya
jis mein swarg utar kar aaya
aisa nagar basaaya
aisa nagar basaaya

ऐसा नगर बसाया
ऐसा नगर बसाया
जिस में स्वर्ग उतर कर आया
जिस में स्वर्ग उतर कर आया

ऐसा नगर बसाया

जहां सुबह की किरणें आ कर
सोना हंस बरसाएँ
यहाँ पे पहुंचे प्रेमी भँवरे
अमर गीत नित गायें
चहुं ओर सुनहरी गुण पाया हम ने
ऐसा नगर बसाया
ऐसा नगर बसाया

इस सोने के प्रीत नगर के
हम दोनों हैं भिखारी
जब तक सूरज चाँद रहेंगे
तब तक प्रीति हमारी
ऐसा वरदान है पाया हम ने
ऐसा नगर बसाया
ऐसा नगर बसाया
जिस में स्वर्ग उतर कर आया
ऐसा नगर बसाया
ऐसा नगर बसाया

Song-Aandhi ke sang toofaan aaya…maane na man maane na (Baarah Ghante)(1975) Singer-Ambar Kumar, Lyrics-Dr Lallan, MD-M S Vishwanathan

Lyrics

aandhi ke sang toofaan aaya aa aa
phool phool murjhaaya
lekin maanav samajh na paaye ae ae
gati vidhna ki haay

maane na man maane na
bada dilkash nazaara
inhin rangeeniyon mein
khoya insaan bechaara
maane na man maane na
bada dilkash nazaara
inhin rangeeniyon mein
khoya insaan bechaara

van van bhatak raha
baap ik aas liye
beti patni se alag
hoke koi kaise jiye
kaanton mein maa uljhi
daaman kaun siye
nahin aankhon ka taara
dil mein aakaash zameeen
ke bhi hain rahem nahin
haay re ye kya ho gaya
kisi ne socha kabhi
pati gumraah huaa
beti bedaar kahin
ho gayi besahaara
maane na man maane na
bada dilkash nazaara
inhin rangeeniyon mein
khoya insaan bechaara

naag zahreela yahaan
jangal ko pyaar to baante
pashu panchhi bhi kabhi
arre ham-jigar ho jaate
magar insaan ko dekho
yahaan insaan hi kaate
haara kismat ka maara
maane na man maane na
bada dilkash nazaara
inhi rangeeiniyon mein
khoya insaan bechaara

mehfil mein tamaasha mat baniye
aise to akadna thheek nahin
???
insaan hai hum har baat pe ladna thheek nahin
