Today’s song is from the film Captain India-1960. Not only this film is making a Debut on the Blog, but its Music Director- Hemant Kedar- too is making his Debut here. It is a rare occasion these days that a music Director makes his Debut in the blog, because we have covered so many MDs already ( at my last count, we have covered 462 MDs on this Blog). However, there are still a large number of MDs whom we have yet to listen. From 1931 to till today, as per a rough estimate, there could be almost 500 to 700 Music Directors.

Of these, MDs who gave music in less than 5 films could be about 50 to 100, those who composed for 5 to 15 films may be 100, from 15 films to 50 films may be about 150, from 50 to 100 films will be around 100, from 100 to 200 films may be another 50, more than 200 films may be about 50 or so. Add to this one film wonder MDs- almost 200.

These are simply wild guesses, without any solid base. Well known Music Directors who have given music in many films are a large group and Music lovers are conversant with their names. What is of interest to a student of HFM is those Music Directors who have given music in less than 5 films and One Film Wonders( like Pt. Amarnath Chawla of Garm Coat-55, for example).

Have you ever heard the name of a composer called HEMANT KEDAR ? No, it is not a pair like Shankar Jaikishan, Kalyanji Anandji or Laxmikant Pyarelal .It is a misleading one name( like another such single name Shyamji Ghanashyam ji, for example). OK, did you ever know about R.K.Shinde or Ram Shinde ? I am sure , most of the readers may not have heard these names. These are the names of Ramkrishna Shinde. This reminds me of composer Snehal Bhatkar who used 5 different names as composer.

The composer of today’s film Captain India-60, Ramkrishna Shinde was a multi talented composer, who could not shine, though he had talents. Further he started his career at a time when India’s big composers like C.Ramchandra,Naushad, Husnlal-Bhagatram, Shanker-Jaikishen etc were in their best performing period and had hogged almost all the major production houses as their Patrons. In this flood of Musical Tsunami, smaller composers remained smaller due to non availability of exposure and good banners, waning into oblivion ! Those who had talents plus good luck survived, but composers with talents without Luck were soon forgotten.

Ramkrishna Shinde was born on 19-4-1918 in Malvan area of Maharashtra Coastal Belt. He was eldest amongst 2 brothers and 2 sisters When he was 9 yr. old, his father died and the faily was shifted to Bombay, by aunt and uncle. His interest in music was unusual. He took training in vocals fro Pt.Sitaram and learnt Sitar from Pt. Madhav rao. For survival, he took up a job in Dawn Mills. In 1944, he got married. Same time, he met Dancer Parvati kumar and Tabla player Ramakant. He soon left the job and started giving music to Marathi stage plays. He was a very popular composer.

His first Hindi film as a composer was Manager-47, followed by Kiski Jeet-48 and then Bihari-48, with Naresh Bhattacharya. Not getting films anymore,he turned to giving music to Dance Ballets. He became so famous in that, that 27 of his ballets went abroad with his music. He was called by Amiya Chakrawarty for giving Dance Music in Usha kiran’s film Gauna-50.

he returned to Hindi films again. This time as Hemant kedar. Reason for this name- his favourite Raagaas were hemant and Kedar. He gave music to

Khaufnak Jungle-55
Police Station-59 and
Captain India-60.

Hemant Kedar ( Like Daan singh and Jaidev) must be one whose unreleased films numbered many or more than than his released films. Some of his Unreleased films were

1. Hamari kahani
2. Avinash
3. Sati mahananda
4. Jannat ki Hoor
5. Peeli kothi
6. Paataal Devta ( This was the film in which actress Mumtaz had Debuted, but this movie was not released)

Hemant Kedar gave music in two Marathi films. Side by side, he did 5-6 programmes on All India Radio. After the advent of Television, he started giving music in TV Ballets and was in great demand for such programmes. He did about 15 Ballets on TV. He became ill and expired on 14-11-1985, leaving behind his wife and two daughters. Luckily, his wife had a good job. (Thanks to http://www.beetehuedin.blogspot.com for this information.)

Film Captain India-60 was produced by Rajaram Saqi and directed by C.Kant. It was a stunt film featuring Kamran, Krishnakumari and others. There were 5 songs, all written by the Producer himself-Rajaram Saqi. Kamran Khan Rizvi was a regular Stunt Hero and I used to enjoy his films. He started his film career with Baghi Sipahi-36, a film made by East India Film Co, Calcutta. A.R.Kardar was its Director. Later on Kamran came to Bombay, along with kardar, who was his Patron for quite some time.

Hero Kamran and Heroine Nazi was a popular combination of 12 stunt films, those days. Kamran worked in 52 films. In 1963, film Bachpan was being directed by Nazar Ahmed. He had some disputes with the Producer and he left the film midway. The Debutant Hero Salim ( father of actor Salman Khan) and Debutant Heroine Menaka ( sister of Daisy and Honey Irani…all daughters of Mrs. P.N. Irani, a greedy mother, who spoiled the childhood of her children for money) were in trouble. Kamran stepped in and completed the film by directing the balance part, without taking any money. During this period, he fell in love with menaka and they got married. Her film career ended there only. They had one son and one daughter ( Actor, compere, Director Sajid Khan and famous Choreographer and Director Farah khan).

Kamran stopped getting Hero’s roles, as stunt films were not being made to that extent in the 70s and later period. He decided to become producer and Director. This proved to be his nemesis. He failed miserably, lost everything and became an alcoholic. He divorced Menaka, who worked as a Housekeeper in a 5 star hotel (Hotel Sea Rock) and he lived in his big flat in Versova with 2 children but no money. He died in 1985.

Kamran directed 11 films from Panch Ratan-65 to Ban Manush-80. His last film as an actor was Nastik-83.

During the period 1950 to 1960, lot of stunt, action, and fiction films from Hollywood used to come . Among them my favourites were from Republic Serial films like “Trip to the Moon’, Hurricane’, Time machine, Superman,The 4 D man etc. There was one film “Captain Marvel”, which was my favourite and I saw it 5 times. I had thought that Captain India-60 was also like that film and went to see the film and came back hugely disappointed . The story of the film was-

Seth Mohan lal was a rich merchant in Burma. He decides to return to India, with his only daughter Krishna and settle in Roop Nagar to lead a retired life. Gangster Rajan from Rangoon comes to know that the Havel Mohan lal is to buy has some great secret hidden in it. If he can get that secret he can rue the world. So, he follows Mohanlal to India.

Meanwhile krishna meets Shekhar- a Press Reporter by job, Lover boy by habit and an all round spy as a hobby. After singing the mandatory love songs and doing exercise around Trees, they decide to marry and tell her father about their love. Rajan is very business minded and so, Mohan lal gets killed and the young couple is frightened with the existence of Ghosts etc in the Haveli.

Madhu is the moll of Rajan and she too loves Shekhar. She reveals the actual plan of Rajan and about the secret formula in the Haveli. Suddenly, Madhu gets killed in the arms of Shekhar. She is murdered by Rajan. Now he is after the lives of Krishna and Shekhar and they are on the run. With the help of the Police, Rajan is caught red handed, but he sets fire to the Haveli and the secret formula gets burnt.

All is well that ends well. After the end, audience is well and goes home cursing the film.

With this post, the blog now carries 700 songs by Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

The story of Laxmikant Pyaarelal reads like a dream rags-to-riches story. But it is also a story of hard work and persistent effort. Laxmikant, the senior partner in the team, was three years elder to Pyaarelal. Interestingly, both were born on 3rd of the month, Laxmikant in November and Pyaarelal in September. Pyaarelal is the son of the renowned musician Ram Prasad Sharma. Although active in the film industry since the latter part of 1930s, Ram Prasad did some films independently from 1947 to 1950. Not adept with commercial acumen, his financial status was poor most of his life. Pyaarelal, his eldest son, had to start working as a musician in recording studios at the age of 12, to support his family. The story of Laxmikant’s childhood is even more depressing. He was raised in the slums of Vile Parle in Bombay. His father passed away when he was just a toddler. A friend of his father supported him and guided him towards learning music. With time, his talent shone through, and he too started working as a musician in the film industry.

Remembering Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on the 19th anniversary of his passing away today (25th May).

Growing up in financially difficult times, the childhood of these two great musicians and music directors kind of weaved through the same threads. Laxmikant got the opportunity to learn violin from Husnlal (of Husnlal-Bhagatram duo), and from Bal Mukund Indorekar. Pyaarelal learnt from his father, and other contemporaries of his father, like Anthony Gonsalves.

The two young musicians met in Sureel Kala Kendra, a center for teaching music to young children. This center was run by the Mangeshkar family. Lata ji was very impressed with the talent of this pair, and through her references, they started getting work as musicians for the recordings of some of the main line music directors of that era. The melody was in the making and the 1950s was the time that this pair of youngsters learnt their trade working under the stalwarts like Naushad, C Ramchandra, SD Burman etc. By the later part of 1950s, the career of Kalyanji Anand ji team was taking off, and Laxmi-Pyaare’s team was working as assistants to them. Although both worked together as a team, Pyaarelal was more incharge of orchestration and arrangements, and Laxmikant was more towards composition and vocals. By early 1960s, this team started to get independent offers. What came about in the short space of 5 to 7 years was a string of memorable hits and Jubilee films, that established Laxmi-Pyaare as a force to reckon with in the industry. Sample their successes from the 1960s – ‘Parasmani’ (1963), ‘Dosti’ (1964), ‘Sant Gyaneshwar’ (1964), ‘Mr X In Bombay’ (1964), ‘Hum Sab Ustad Hain’ (1965), ‘Lutera’ (1965), ‘Shriman Funtoosh’ (1965), ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’ (1966), ‘Pyaar Kiye Jaa’ (1966), ‘Milan’ (1967), ‘Pathat Ke Sanam’ (1967), ‘Shagird’ (1967), ‘Night In London’ (1967), ‘Farz’ (1967), ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ (1969), ‘Inteqam’ (1969), ‘Do Raaste’ (1969) – the list simply goes on and on.

Many readers may be aware that Laxmikant made an appearance as himself in the 1983 film ‘Teri Kasam’.  There is a sequence wherein a song is being recorded for a rising young star, role played by Gaurav Kumar. The initial part of this song is pictruized inside a recording studio, where Laxmikant is sitting in the control room. Incidentally we also see Kersi Lord, one of the expert music arrangers of our industry, also present, working on the recording machinery.

For the anniversary today, I bring this last remaining song of the film ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’ from 1966. Six of the seven songs of this film are already posted on our blog. A quick look as the list below, and you can imagine, what a musical treat this film is – one of the early films of Dharmendra as he is taking off as a romantic hero.

1.       Mere Dushman Tu Meri Dosti Ko Tarse
2.       Suno Sajna Papeehe Ne
3.       Khat Likh De Sanwariya Ke Naam Babu
4.       Mera Mehboob Hai Bemisaal
5.       Phoolon Se Mukhde Waali
6.       Ye kali jab talak phool ban ke khiley

This last song is an all female duet, which is sung by Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar. On screen, it is performed by Nazima and Asha Parekh. The words are from the pen of Anand Bakshi. An important note here about the association of this duo music directors and this song writer. This combination has been one of the most prolific songwriter – MD combinations in the industry. Over the decades, they have produced more than 300 songs together, a majority of which have been significant hits.

With a tribute to Laxmikant today, listen to this wonderful expression of aspirations of falling in love, and the simultaneous advice against it. The words are superb, and the composition is very attractive. And yes, with this song, the film ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’ completes its tally of songs on the blog. Time for another ‘Yippeee’ call.

With this song, Laxmikant Pyarelal now have 700 songs in the blog as music directors. They become only the second music directors, behind Shankar Jaikishan to reach this figure in the blog.

[Ed Note: Harish ji Raghuvanshi (of Surat) has informed in a separate email that Laxmikant-Pyaarelal are the only music directors in Hindi films to have crossed the 500 films milestone. There may be other names from South film centers, but as far as Hindi films is concerned, L-P are the leaders.]


Song – Ae Kaash Kisi Deewaane Ko (Aaye Din Bahaar Ke) (1966) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

ae kaash kisi

bas aaj qayaamat ho jaaye
ae kaash kisi deewaane ko

hai waqt abhi tauba kar lo
hai waqt abhi tauba kar lo
allah museebat ho jaaye
allah museebat ho jaaye
ae kaash kisi deewaane ko
hum se bhi mohabbat ho jaaye

tum maloom nahin shaayad
kitne be-dard sanam hongey
tum maloom nahin shaayad
kitne be-dard sanam hongey
ye aap ne sach farmaaya hai
ulfat mein laakh sitam hongey
ulfat mein laakh sitam hongey
hain laakh sitam manzoor hamen
bas ek inaayat ho jaaye
hum lut jaayen
dil kho jaaye
bas aaj qayaamat ho jaaye
ae kaash kisi deewaane ko
hum se bhi mohabbat ho jaaye

har saans ko har ik dhadkan ko
wo apni yaad banaa daaley
har saans ko har ik dhadkan ko
wo apni yaad banaa daaley
tum aaj agar ik nagma ho
tumko fariyaad banaa daaley
tumko fariyaad banaa daaley

gairon se to ho shiqwe tumko
khud se bhi shikaayat ho jaaye
hai waqt abhi tauba kar lo
allah museebat ho jaaye
ae kaash kisi deewaane ko
hum se bhi mohabbat ho jaaye

har ek khataa ki is duniya ki
is ke khataa se behtar hai
har ek khataa ki is duniya ki
is ke khataa se behtar hai
ye pyaar nahin ik dard sahi
ye dard dawaa se behtar hai
ye dard dawaa se behtar hai
bas chain hamen aa jaaye jo
bechain tabiyat ho jaaye
hum lut jaayen
dil kho jaaye
bas aaj qayaamat ho jaaye
ae kaash kisi deewaane ko
hum se bhi mohabbat ho jaaye
hai waqt abhi tauba kar lo
allah museebat ho jaaye
allah museebat ho jaaye
allah museebat ho jaaye

ए काश किसी

ए काश किसी दीवाने को
हम से भी मोहब्बत हो जाये

दिल खो जाये
बस आज क़यामत हो जाये
ए काश किसी दीवाने को
हम से भी मोहब्बत हो जाये

है वक़्त अभी तौबा कर लो
अल्लाह मुसीबत हो जाये
अल्लाह मुसीबत हो जाये
ए काश किसी दीवाने को
हम से भी मोहब्बत हो जाये

तुमको मालूम नहीं शायद
कितने बे-दर्द सनम होंगें
तुमको मालूम नहीं शायद
कितने बे-दर्द सनम होंगें
ये आपने सच फरमाया है
उलफत में लाख सितम होंगें
उलफत में लाख सितम होंगें
हैं लाख सितम मंजूर हमें
बस एक इनायत हो जाये
हम लुट जाएँ
दिल खो जाये

हर सांस को हर इक धड़कन को

ये दर्द दवा से बेहतर है
ये दर्द दवा से बेहतर है
बस चैन हमें आ जाये जो
बेचैन तबीयत हो जाये’
हम लुट जाएँ
दिल खो जाये

अल्लाह मुसीबत हो जाये
अल्लाह मुसीबत हो जाये
अल्लाह मुसीबत हो जाये

“Sangeeta” (1950) was directed by Ramanlal Desai for Sudha Pictures Production. The movie had Shyam, Nigar Sultana, Suraiya Choudhary, Ramsingh, Radha Krishnan, Pran, Mumtaz Ali etc in it.

As many as si songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the seventh song from the movie to appear in the blog. This light hearted song is sung by Lata and C Ramchandra. P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song is picturised on Nigar Sultana and Shyam, though I could be wrong. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Girgit ki tarah hain rang badalte fashion waale baabu (Sangeeta)(1950) Singers-Lata, C Ramchandra, Lyrics-P L Santoshi, MD-C Ramchandra
Both

Lyrics

girgit ki tarah hain rang badalte fashion waale baabu
girgit ki tarah hain rang badalte fashion waale baabu
girgit ki tarah hain rang badalte fashion waale baabu

munh pe choone ki safedi
tan pe kaalaa suit hai
tie aayi hai kahin se
to kisi kaa boot hai
jeb mein damdi nahin aur baate karte laakh ki
muft ki cigarette bhi peete
shaan hai ye aap ki
aur matak matak kar chalte hain ye fashion waale baabu
girgit ki tarah hain rang badalte fashion waale baabu

achchhi soorat koi dekhi
chat se aashiq ho gaye
kah diyaa bas tum hamaare
ham tumhaare ho gaye
inki baaton kaa nahin saahib mujhko koi aitbaar
inki baaton kaa nahin saahib mujhko koi aitbaar
ye kapdo ki tarah badalte maashooq bhi din mein teen baar
ye kapado ki tarah badalte maashooq bhi din mein teen baar
har nayi shakl par machalte hain ye fashion waale baabu
har nayi shakl par machalte hain ye fashion waale baabu
girgit ki tarah hain rang badalte fashion waale baabu

bholi bhaali soorat waale
hote hain sab bewafaa
inse jo ulfat kare
ho jaaye duniyaa se safaa

aison hi se karke ulfat
baad mein pachhtaate hain
rang gulaabi dekh ke sehre ka ye mar jaate hain
rah rah ke haath phir malate hai ye fashion waale baabu
rah rah ke haath phir malte hain ye fashion waale baabu
girgit ki tarah hain rang badalte fashion waale baabu

“Buniyaad”(1972) was produced and directed by Virendra Sharma for Pragati Chitra International movie. The movie had Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Yogita Bali, Rakesh Roshan, Bindu, Faryal, Pran, Jankidass, Sajjan etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One of these songs, the most well known one, has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Buniyaad”(1972) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The picturisation shows Rakesh Roshan (playing college student) teasing Yogita Bali (playing his fellow college student). Teasing a fellow college student of the fair se would be severely frowned upon. But in Hindi movies of those days, the hero, no matter what role he played ( a student, a monk, a musician, a soldier, a teacher, a fakir), teasing the lead actress in the beginning of the story was considered a necessary part of his job description. The leading lady would resent it, but by the end of the song, she would miraculously turn over a new leaf and would begin to fall in love with the hero, which to me appears quite a demeaning thing to do for the lady.

The small mercy that I can think of was that this movie did not do well at the bo office and so not too many people may have seen this movie and this song. Even I became aware of this song only just now.

So, here is this song from “Buniyaad”(1972), which is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog.

The western music tends to grow on the listener after one has heard this song a few times. I feel that this is a song that is better heard than seen.


Song-Main hoon kismatwaala dilwaala matwaala(Buniyaad)(1972) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

रोक सकता हमें ज़िन्दान-ए-बला क्या मजरूह
हम तो आवाज़ हैं दीवार से छन जाते हैं

Rok sakta hamen zindaan-e-bala kya ‘Majrooh’
Ham to aawaaz hain deewaar se chhan jaate hain.

[Can prison of calamity stop us?
We are the voice which can infiltrate the wall].

This she’r was written by the young Majrooh Sultanpuri probably sometime in the 1940s. Perhaps he was goaded by the idealistic impulses when he was  associated with the Progressive Writers Association (PWA), a left-oriented ideological group.  Nonetheless, for Majrooh Sultanpuri, it has been a quick transformation – from an idealistic poet of PWA  to a lyricist in the film industry.

Today, May 24th 2017 is the 17th Remembrance Day of Majrooh Sultanpuri (01/10/1919 – 24/05/2000) who ruled the Hindi film industry as a lyricist for over 5 decades. His long innings in Hindi film industry can be gauged by the fact that he wrote lyrics for music director Naushad in 1946 to A R Rahman in 2000. He wrote lyrics for the three generation of Kapoor family –  for Raj Kapoor in ‘Andaz’ (1949) to Randheer Kapoor in ‘Rampur Ka Lakshman’ (1972)  and to Karishma Kapoor in ‘Ham To Mohabbat Karega’ (2000). These are the testimonies of his smooth adaptation of the changing environments in Hindi film music. He achieved this without much diluting the quality of his lyrics.

Majrooh Sultanpuri was initially a reluctant lyricist if I go by his as well as others’ interviews. In 1945, he had accompanied his mentor, Jigar Moradabadi to Bombay (Mumbai) for participation in a Mushaira. Many film producers and directors saw such mushaira as an opportunity to select budding poets to write songs for their films. One of the producer-directors who attended the mushaira was AR Kardar. He  was producing and directing ‘Shah Jahan’ (1946) and was keen to engage Jigar Moradabadi to write songs for the film. However, Jigar Moradabadi declined the offer and instead suggested him to take his disciple, Majrooh Sultanpuri who had impressed the audience with his poetry in the mushaira.

Majrooh Sultanpuri was reluctant to write songs for the films as he felt that his association with films would affect his shaayari. However, at the end, he could not say no to his mentor and agreed to write the songs for ‘Shah Jahan’ (1946). This was the start for a reluctant lyricist which culminated into a very long and a successful filmy career.

After the success of his iconic songs ‘Shah Jahan’ (1946) such as gham kiye mushtakil, Majrooh Sultanpuri  also wrote songs for Naushad in films such as  ‘Qeemat’ (1946) and ‘Andaz’ (1949) and for Bulo C Rani in ‘Anjuman’ (1948) and ‘Nazaare’ (1949) among others. The success of ‘Andaz’ (1949) and ‘Aarzoo’ (1950) firmly established Majrooh Sultanpuri as a lyricist. However, his filmy career got a setback sometime in 1950 when the then Government of Bombay arrested him for inciting the workers through his recitation of poems. Although the Government gave him an opportunity to apologise his action, he refused and instead spent 2 years in Arthur Road Jail along with Balraj Sahani.

After his release from the jail, he found it hard to get the assignments. The absence of 2 years in Hindi film industry is a long period to successfully restart the career. By this time, Naushad had Shakeel Badayuni, SD Burman had Sahir Ludhinavi, Raj Kapoor with Shankar-Jaikishan had Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri. During this period, Majrooh Sultanpuri got work to write one or two songs in a few films. Perhaps, his jail stint thought him a lesson that he had to keep his ideological views separate from his filmy career. Thanks to his calibre and with some luck, his second inning started with a good number of films albeit with a gap.

In 1953, 9 films in which Majrooh Sultanipuri contributed lyrics were released. However, almost all these films did not fare well on the box office front although they had some very good songs. Among his 1953 released films, ‘Fareb’ (1953) had two beautiful songs aa mohabbat ki basti basaayenge ham and husn bhi hai udaas udaas ishq bhi gham se choor hai.  ‘Baaghi’ (1953) had hamaare baad ab mehfil mein afsaane bayaan honge. ‘Footpath’ (1953) had shaam e gham ki kasam aaj ghamgeen hain ham and ‘Hamdard’ (1953) had tera haathh haathhon mein aa gaya.

The year 1954 was a  milestone  in the filmy career of Majrooh Sultanpuri along with  OP Nayyar and Guru Dutt who all were associated with the film ‘Baaz’ (1953). Despite good songs, the film had failed at the box office. Guru Dutt’s next venture ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) was hopping to recoup the financial losses. The film became a super hit at the box office. For Majrooh Sultanpuri, it was a successful departure from the poignant songs which he used to write earlier to light-hearted songs like appeasement song (ye lo main haari piya huyi teri jeet re) and Hinglish/Bambaiyya/nok jhonk/teasing song (arrey na na na na na tauba tauba).

The success of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) proved that Majrooh Sultanpuri was also an expert in writing light-hearted songs and that he could easily write songs for pre-set tunes without much compromising in the use of appropriate words in the lyrics. Later he wrote many such songs in films like ‘Mr and Mrs 1955’ (1955), ‘CID’ (1956), ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957),  ‘Paying Guest’ (1957), ‘Chalti Ka Naam ghaadi’ (1958), ‘Dilli Kaa Thug’ (1958) and many more.

With over 2000 songs in about 350 films during 1946-2000, it is not possible to discuss  the full career of Majrooh Sultanpuri in a single article. So I will skip his works with music directors like SD Burman, OP Nayyar, Chitragupt, Roshan, Madan Mohan, Ravi etc during the 1960s and with music directors like Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Rajesh Roshan, Anand- Milind, Jatin-Lalit, Bappi Lahiri, Anu Malik etc 1970s onward. However, I feel that I must include here the unique and the long lasting association of Majrooh Sultanpuri with  RD Burman.

When Nasir Hussain signed Majrooh Sultanpuri as lyricist for ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966), the music director for the film was not finalised.  Majrooh Sultanpuri suggested the name of RD Burman as the music director. However, the name had to be vetted by Shammi Kapoor, the lead actor of the film as it was generally known that he would prefer OP Nayyar or Shankar-Jaikishan as the music director. After a presentation by RD Burman, Shammi Kapoor was so much impressed by the tunes of the songs composed by RD Burman that he instantly gave his nod.

The ‘khushnuma’ songs of Majrooh Sultanpuri which RD Burman composed the folk-based tunes with some elements of  rock, jazz and latino became an instant hit with the young generation. Personally, I feel that the songs of ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966) was the beginning of the end of the golden era of Hindi film music. A new and modern style of Hindi film music started which was well received not only by the  younger  generation but also many of my generation. Majrooh Sultanpuri’s lyrics acted as a continuum during the change of Hindi film musical eras. And what a contrasting style of lyrics he wrote during 1966 itself!  For example, he wrote  o mere sona re sona re sone re, de dungi jaan juda mat hona re for ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966) and also  chhupa lo yoon dil mein pyaar mera ke jaise mandir mein lau diye ki in ‘Mamata’ (1966).

I had called RD Burman-Majrooh Sultanpuri combination an unique one. The reason is that after listening to the songs of ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966), one can immediately feel the vast differences in the types of songs composed earlier with that of the songs of Teesri Manzil. But the lyrical style of Majrooh Sultanpuri remains more or less the same. So it was a sort of blend of the golden era style of lyrics with modern melodies and rhythm.

Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote songs for RD Burman in as many as 75 films during 1966-1996 – the highest number of films he did with a music director. Laxmikant-Pyarelal ranked a distant second with 42 films during 1964-1992 and Chitragupt with 23 films ranked third. His association with music directors like SD Burman, OP Nayyar, Rajesh Roshan, Anand-Milind etc resulted in writing songs for films ranging between 15 and 20. But the fact remains that he worked with almost all the top music directors of his time.

An interesting observation about the association of Majrooh Sultanpuri with then upcoming music directors is in order. The first film which some of them did with him became the turning point for the successful takeoff in their career. Examples are Laxmikant-Pyarelal (Dosti, 1964), RD Burman (‘Teesri Manzil’, 1966), Rajesh Roshan (‘Kunwara Baap’, 1975) and Anand-Milind (‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’, 1985).

In 1993, Majrooh Sultanpuri was conferred with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award, the first film lyricist to get the award.

As happens in any filmy career, Majrooh Sultanpuri’s  career got a set back during the second half of the 1990s. His favourite music directors were not in much demand and probably he could not adjust to the lyrical demands of the third generation of music directors.

One silver lining during this lean period for Majrooh Sultanpuri was Asha Bhonsle’s non-film pop album ‘Jaanam Samjha Karo’ (1997) in which all the eight songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. This album was sold like a hot cake mainly because of the popularity of the song jaanam samjha karo which won MTV and V Channel award for Asha Bhonsle in 1997. I remember that not a single day passed on the TV musical channels without playing this pop song when the song’s  video was made public. While the younger generation may have liked the pop music and the way the video was shot on Milind Soman and Helen Brodie, I liked more for its lyrics and Asha Bhonsle’s rendition. At that time, I was not even aware that it was written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Just a few months before his death on May 24, 2000, one of his fellow lyricists had met him and enquired as to what he was doing. Majrooh Sultanpuri replied in Hindi ‘andhon ke shahar mein aaina bech raha hoon’. (I am selling mirrors in the city of blinds). This, by and large, sums up the status of lyricists in the neo-modern era of Hindi film music.

On the occasion of 17th Remembrance Day of Majrooh Sultanpuri, I recall his five of the six songs he wrote for the film ‘Garam Coat’ (1955), the 6th song being a Meera bhajan.  Five songs were rendered by Lata Mangeshkar for which she did not take any remuneration. Five songs from the film have already been covered in the blog. The film was produced by Rajinder Singh Bedi and was directed by Amar Kumar. The star cast included Balraj Sahani, Nirupa Roy, Vijaylaxmi, Jayant, Brahm Bhardwaj, Baij Sharma, Rashid Khan etc.

Here is the 6th song ‘Nanha Mora Dole Mori Anganiyaa’. The song was set to music by Pandit Amarnath Chawla, who was the senior most disciple of Ustad Amir Khan. The song is picturised on Vijaylaxmi who plays with her kid and admires his aimless walk in the courtyard of her village house. The background of this song is that Balraj Sahani has lost his entire salary on the salary day and his debtors would be asking for the money he owes them. He decides to commit suicide by coming in front of the train. However, by the time he reaches the spot, the train had just passed. A dejected Balraj Sahani waits for another train to come when he suddenly hears humming of a song sung by a mother for her child from a house on the other side of the railway track.  He reaches near the house and what he sees bring some smile on his face. Instead of committing suicide, Balraj Sahani goes back to his home.

Majrooh’s lyrics in this song is the true reflection of the village settings about 60 years back which are  still valid even in the 21st century for many of the villages in India. I have come across a couple of Hindi words used in the lyrics such as ‘humak’ (toddler’s walking attempts), ‘kilkaari’ (toddler’s loud sound when happy) after a long time.

[Ed Note: With this post, the film ‘Garam Coat’ joins the list of films with all songs covered on this blog. Yippeee time. . . ]

Today, May 24, 2017 is the Remembrance Day of Bulo C Rani,  the music director and the singer who left this day 24 years ago under unfortunate circumstances. A contemporary of music directors like Anil Biswas, Ghulam Haider, Naushad, C Ramchandra and Khemchand  Prakash, it is a sad commentary on Hindi film industry that Bulo C Rani could not attain the stature of these music directors. And this is despite the fact that he was associated with the Hindi film industry for over 2 decades and had churned out some immortal compositions.

I started listening to Hindi film songs on the radio as a teenager and in my younger days, the music directors like Naushad, C Ramchandra, S D Burman, Husnlal-Bhagatram, Shankar-Jaikishan, Roshan, Madan Mohan, OP Nayyar etc were familiar to me. But I had not heard of Bulo C Rani and other lesser known music directors. However,  I was very familiar with a few of the songs composed by him like Prwaanon Se Preet Seekh Len, Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne and Maangne Se Jo Maut Mil Jaati. At that time, for me, these songs and the singers were inseparable without caring to know about the lyricists and composers of the songs.

It was during early 70s when I was first exposed to the old Hindi films songs of 40s and 50s by my friend, when I heard in his house Sundarta Ke Sabhi Pujaari. In a way, this song served not only to be my introduction to the film ‘Jogan’ (1950) but also to Bulo C Rani. Over a period of time, I became familiar with his contributions to Hindi film industry as a music director. After joining this Blog, I was  pleasantly surprised to know that during his stint as a music director, he had composed  as many as 584 songs in 70 Hindi films.

Bulo C Rani (06/05/1920 – 24/05/1993) was born in Hyderabad (Sindh) in a Sindhi family. His father Chandiram was a musician who was the music director in some of the films of early 1930s. I find from the internet that three films, viz. ‘Insaan Ya Saitaan’ (1933), ‘Prem Pariksha’ (1934) and ‘Yaasmin’ (1935) have Chandiram as the music director. So the young Bulo C Rani may have got the inspiration from his father to develop his interest in the music.

Sometime in the early 40s, Bulo C Rani visited Lahore with the intention of working under Ghulam Haider who had become a household name with the runaway success of his songs in ‘Khazaanchi’ (1941). However, after finding that he has not become even assistant to Ghulam Haider,  he shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) on the advice of DN Madhok, lyricist and the then ‘king maker’ in Hindi film industry. He took Bulo C Rani to Ranjit Studios where he was got employment as assistant to Khemchand Prakash and Gyan Dutt, the main music directors of Ranjit Movietone at that time.

Bulo C Rani got the chance to compose two songs for the film ‘Paighaam’ (1943) thanks to Gyan Dutt who was the music director for the film. It was in the early 1944 that he got the independent assignments as a full-fledged music director in Ranjit Movietone’s two films ‘Pagli Duniya’ (1944) and ‘Carvaan’ (1944). Both these films were directed by Aspi Irani. There were total of 27 songs in these two films of which as many as 15 songs were sung by Amirbai Karnataki. In these two films, Bulo C Rani also sang 5 songs with a psuedo name ‘Bhola’.

And what a musical start for Bulo C Rani! In ‘Caravaan’ (1944), two songs, Sooni Padi Hai Pyaar Ki Duniya Tere Baghair sung by Amirbai Karnataki and Aankhon Mein Intezaar Ki Duniya Liye Huye sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali became very popular. In ‘Pagli Duniya’ (1944), I like the song Dil Dard Se Bharpoor Hai Aankhon Mein Hai Paani and “Gar Hum Ko Jalaaoge Duniya Ko Jalaa Denge’, both sung by Amirbai Karnataki. Unfortunately for Bulo C Rani, despite good music, ‘Pagli Duniya’ (1944) failed miserably at the box office and ‘Caravaan’ (1944) registered only a modest success.  Additionally, in terms of public tastes,  Bulo C Rani could not match his compositions in these two films with that of songs of his boss, Khemchand Prakash in ‘Bharthari’ (1944) and ‘Bhanwara’ (1944) which were released in the same year.

In the remaining of the 1940s, Bulo C Rani had on an average 5 films per year thanks to Ranjit Movietone where he was a full time employee. By the end of 1946, both Khemchand Prakash and Gyan Dutt had turned free-lance music directors thus giving Bulo C Rani more opportunity to get the films from Ranjit Movietone. A few of the popular songs composed by him during this period were Badariya Baras Gayi Us Paar from ‘Moorti’ (1945), Jaa Parwaane Jaa Kahin Shama Jal Rahi Hai from ‘Rajputaani’ (1946), Wo Teer Kaleje Par Ik Shokh Ne Maara Hai from ‘Anjuman’ (1948) etc.

Discussion on Bulo C Rani would not be complete without ‘Jogan’ (1950) which was produced by Chandulal Shah under the banner of Ranjit Movietone. This film was finalised with Dilip Kumar and Nargis, the two prominent actors of that time as lead actors. However, the financial condition of Ranjit Movietone was so precarious that the company had money to sustain for only one month. Kidar Sharma who had already left Ranjit Movietone to produce and direct films under his own banner was approached with a request to start the shooting to complete the film in one month.

Kidar Sharma accepted the challenge and started shooting during the day time and the post production work in the night time for which he had to stay in Ranjit Studio. Bulo C Rani was entrusted with the music direction of the film with 15 songs to be composed and recorded. The film was completed in less than a month and was released. The film was a box office hit and became the 5th highest grosser at the box office for 1950. The success of the film was attributed mainly to 15 songs of which 6 songs were Meera Bai’s Bhajans. The highlight of film was that all the 15 songs became very popular. Bulo C Rani’s real recognition as a music director came with the success of these songs.

The success of ‘Jogan’ (1950) did not add value to Bulo C in terms of his musical career. In fact, during 1951, he had only one film “Pyaar Ki Baaten’ (1951) which got released. During 1950s, one of his films which was critically acclaimed for its music was ‘Bilwamangal’ (1954). My favourite songs from the film are Parwaanon Se Preet Seekh Len and Hum Ishq Ke Maaron Ko Do Dil Jo Diye Hotey.

In the greater part of 1950s, Bulo C Rani was relegated to some B grade films and in 1960s, he was getting films mostly belonging to the genre of  action/costume/fantasy/mythology.  Producers of such B and C grade films will have limited budget which prevents them, among other things, hiring the top playback singers for the music directors. During 1950 to 1966, Bulo C Rani composed nearly 300 songs of which Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi, who had become the top playback singers, sang for him only 22 and 31 songs respectively.

During his stint with B and C grade films,  Bulo C Rani appears to have been influenced by the qawwali genre of songs and that too by Yusuf Azad/Ismail Azad. There were qawwalis in ‘Noor E Yaman’ (1956), ‘Jahaazi Lootera’ (1957), ‘Al Hilal’ (1958), ‘Black Tiger’ (1960), ‘Pedro’ (1960), ‘Room No.17’ (1961), ‘Jaadoo Mahal’ (1962), ‘Madam Zorro’ (1962) and ‘Jadoo’(1966). In ‘Son of Hatimtai’ (1965), there was qawwali sung by Rafi and Jaani Babu Qawwal.

‘Sunehre Qadam’ (1966) was Bulo C Rani’s last film after which he kept himself away from the Hindi film industry. It is said that during this period, he started teaching music to students. He also composed music for a couple of Sindhi films and some non-filmy songs.  I feel that his musical career was tied with the fate of Ranjit Movietone. The moment, Ranjit Movietone’s factory-like film production stopped, Bulo C Rani lost his comfort zone.  It was difficult for him to face the competitions from the likes of Naushad, C Ramchandra, S D Burman, Shankar-Jaikishan, OP Nayyar, Roshan, Madan Mohan etc during 1950s and 60s.

It is a well-known fact that in any vocation, not all becomes successful even if the persons have more or less the same talent. What differentiates between a successful and not so successful person is the extra punch (in today’s parlance ‘extra toppings’) the successful persons apply in their approach to work. I guess, Bulo C Rani may have lacked that extra punch in his work. Additionally, one also requires luck to be on his side for attaining the success. Luck was obviously not in favour of Bulo C Rani as he did not have good banners to support him as was the case with his compatriot music directors in the 1950s and 60s. In this context, one of the songs written by Kaif Irfani and composed by  Bulo C Rani for the film ‘Gul Sanobar’ (1953) aptly applies to him:

isse na aur lootiye
ye dil bahut gareeb hai
naseeb se main kya kahoon
naseeb to naseeb hai

Bulo C Rani was a good singer. In fact, he started his filmy career as a singer with “Roothna Pyaar Mein Karwat Ka Badal Jaana Hai’ in the film ‘Mehmaan’ (1942) under the music direction of Khemchand Prakash. By the time he became a full-fledged music director in 1944, he had already sung 14 songs in 10 films. During his entire filmy career, he sang 43 songs in 24 films. All these songs were sung under the music direction of Gyan Dutt and Khemchand Prakash in addition to his own music direction.

On the 24th Remembrance Day of Bulo C Rani, I have selected a rare ghazal from the film ‘Madhur Milan’ (1955) which I came across only a few days back. In fact, I was under the impression that I had listened to all the songs of this film as early as in early 1970s in my friend’s house. But it was not so.

The song is “Ye Chaandni, Ye Hawa, Ye Samaa Bahaaron Ka’ composed and sung by Bulo C Rani. The songwriter is Jaan Nisar Akhtar. The video of this rare song was not available on the internet. So I have made a video from mp3 clip and uploaded the same a few days back on YT. The highlight of this song is that Bulo C Rani has rendered the ghazal in a style which is the reminiscence of KL Saigal era.


Song – Ye Chaandni Ye Hawa Ye Samaa Bahaaron Ka (Madhur Milan) (1955) Singer – Bulo C Rani, Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

“Aaye Din Bahaar Ke”(1966) was produced by J Omprakash and directed by Raghunath Jhalani for Filmyug Private Limited. The movie had Dharmendra, Asha Parekh, Naazima, Sulochana Latkar, Raj Mehra, Rajendranath, Balraj Sahni, Sunder, Mubarak, Sabita Chatterjee, Leela Mishra, Dulari, Madhu Apte, Khairati, Sarita Devi, Brahm Bhardwaj, C.S.Dubey, Nazir Kashmiri, Lata Bose etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it and all of them were quite popular songs. Five of these songs have been covered in the blog. Here is the sixth song from “Aaye Din Bahaar Ke”(1966) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Mahendra Kapoor. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a song that was popularly described as the lead pair (Asha Parekh and Dharmendra) running around trees, though it is more like rolling on the grass and trampling them in the process, as far as I can tell. 🙂

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra quite some time back.

“Darbaar” (1955) was a Golden Movie production. It was directed by Nanubhai Bhatt. The movie had Mahipal, Chitra, Sunder, Tiwari, Kammo, Kamal, Niranjan Sharma etc in it, which suggests that it was a B grade movie.

Nine songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the tenth and final song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on Chitra. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Darbaar” (1955) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Lyrics

dupatta mera dhalak gaya

dupatta mera dhalak gaya
dhalak gaya sar se
o dhalak gaya sar se
sarak gaya sar se

haaye dupatta mera

dhalka dupatta to jholi bana li
phailaake jholi main banke sawaali
maangoon dil ki muraad
kar do dil mera shaad
o o o
kar do dil mera shaad
main to khaali na jaaungi is dar se
dupatta mera dhalak gaya
dhalak gaya sar se
haaye dupatta mera

sunti hoon tum to ho sabke sahaare
aayi hoon aaj main bhi dar pe tumhaare
sun lo meri pukaar
jholi bhar do sarkaar
o o o
jholi bhar do sarkaar
meri bigdi banegi isi dar se ae ae
dupatta mera dhalak gaya
dhalak gaya sar se
haaye dupatta mera

loota chaman ho meri zaalim khizaan ne
dil pe giraai bijli phir aasmaan ne
tooti har ek aas
zindagi hai udaas
o o o
zindagi hai udaas
aapki rahmat idhar bhi zara barse
dupatta mera dhalak gaya
dhalak gaya sar se
haaye dupatta mera
dupatta mera dhalak gaya
dhalak gaya sar se
haaye dupatta mera

Isaa ko toone zaalimon ke
panje se thha chhudaaya
moosa ko toone maujo mein bhi
raasta dikhaaya
barbaad ho rahi hai
duniya meri
bachha le ae
tera hee aasra hai
o do jahaanwaale

kashti ye ?? toone
toofaan se bachaai
maine tujhe pukaara
maalik teri duhaai
maalik teri duhaai
sun le kisi ke dil se
nikle huye yeh naale
tera hee aasra hai
o do jahaanwaale

raham-o-karam pe tere
duniya ki zindagi hai
tu maar ya bacha de
maalik teri khushi hai
maalik teri khushi hai
mit’ti ho agar mohabbat
mujhko bhi tu uthha le
tera hee aasra hai
o do jahaanwaale
o do jahaanwaale
o do jahaanwaale
o do jahaanwaale

With this, the year 1954 becomes the sixth such year after 1949, 1955, 1956, 1958 and 1959 that have the distinction of having songs from 100 or more movies represented in the blog.


Song-Meri barbaadiyon pe (Sadma)(1954) Singer-Kalindi Keskar, Lyrics-T Ram Dewan, MD-Shankar Dasgupta

Lyrics

Meri barbaadiyon pe
mere janaaze ??
meri barbaadiyon pe
gehre zakhmon se
?? nishaani
meri barbaadiyon ke

dil ki dhadkan mein ham
dard chhupaate hain
aa aa aa aa aa
ham ashq bahaate hain
ham ashq bahaate hain

koi nahin hai hamdam
ham khud ko manaate hain
ranjo gham se aaj ham
dil ki bujhaate hain
?? ke
?? ko lagaane ae ae
meri barbaadiyon pe

ham uske kareeb ?
?? muqaddar ka
jo din guzarta hai ae
wo din hai dar guzar ka
yoon hi to dil ?? ke
dil hain mitaane ae ae
meri barbaadiyon pe
