Today (28 January 2023) is the 16th remembrance day of O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). He ruled the roost in HFM during 1950s and 1960s, and that too on his own terms. Imagine not using the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in his songs and still managing to create great songs. Curiously, he found his playback singer of choice in Lata Mangeshkar’s family itself, in the form of her younger sinter Asha Bhonsle. There is no doubt that it was O P Nayyar who offered Asha Bhonsle the opportunity to become a playback singer second only to her illustrious elder sister.

This association of Asha Bhonsle and O P Nayyar lasted nearly two years before they had an acrimonious break up.

We as music lovers are more interested in music and less on the personal affairs of those creating them. As far as O P Nayyar is concerned, he worked in 73 movies (give or take a few). As many as 50 of his movies, including almost all of his movies of 1950s and 1960s have already been YIPPEED in the blog. The few unYIPPEED movies of those decades are unYIPPEED because the balance songs are unavailable.

So we have to movies in the later part of O P Nayyar’s career, if we want to discuss songs composed by him.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) is one of his less known movie. It was produced and directed by Kamran, a B grade movie maker (Father of Farah and Sajid Khan) for Rainbow Films, Bombay. The movie had Dev Mukherji, Nandita Bose (making debut), Jalal Agha, Rupesh Kumar, Anwar Ali, Nikita, Tiwari, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Anjum, Birbal, Maruti, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begum, Shefali, Raj Rani, Mehboob, Jayshree T etc in it.

The movie flopped and so the songs of this movie had no change to get popular because they were not heard by most music lovers.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog.

As a tribute of O P Nayyar, here is the second sonng from “Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P nayyar of course.

It is a sweet song to listen to. The song sounds like the songs she sang under O P Nayyar’s baton during those years.

Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This song is the 500th song of OP Nayyar in the blog as a music director. This is the final century of O P Nayyar seeing that O P Nayyar composed around 570 songs in all. That means we are within striking distance of covering all available O P Nayyar compositions in the blog.

We take this oppotunity to play our tribute to the legendary music director O P Nayyar.


Song-Chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle (Aisa Bhi Hota Hai)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

ek hansi iski hai saari duniya meri
ek muskaan sau saal ki zindagi
mujhko duniya mein ab aur kya chaahiye
mil gayi hai zamaane ki saari khushi
maine barson jo dekha thha sapna
aaj kismat se poora hua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

har ghadi har samay muskuraata hua
phool sa bachpana meri baahon mein ho
laal mera bada hoke jaaye jahaan
kaamyaabi sada iski raahon mein ho
door har dum rahe gham ke saye
ye hamesha hi meri dua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla
lalalalla

#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #
————————————————————————
#Birthday-Suman Kalyanpur 28th Jan’2023 #
—————————————————————————————-

Today 28th January’2023 is the eighty-sixth birthday of Singer Suman Kalyanpur- (born on 28th January’1937).

As per the statistics on this blog Suman Kalyanpur has sung around 857 songs in Hindi Films and so far we have covered 433 songs sung her on the blog. So, that is just above the half of the figures of total songs sung by her. We still have a long way to go before all her songs are posted here on the blog.

She has been conferred with ‘Padma Bhushan’ by Government of India on this ‘Republic Day’ and we congratulate her on this achievement, and also wish her a very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

A mishap happened with her just three days before when fire broke out in the building she is staying at Mumbai and she had to be evacuated from there to her relatives’ house in the city. A news article says on this incident that it will take around two to three weeks for everything to come to normal in the fire affected building.

We sincerely hope that everything will soon be back to normal.

To start the day I am presenting a song sung by Suman Kalyanpur from the decade of fifties i.e.1951-1960.

Here is a song from the ‘1958’ movie ‘Kal Kyaa Hogaa’.

“Kal Kyaa Hogaa-1958” was directed by Ramesh Dheeraj for ‘Sound And Shadow Corporation’.
It was produced by Y. B. Yavar. (In the footnote of this movie’s details, HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) mentions that the production activities of this movie were looked after by Nanabhai Bhatt).

The cast of this movie included Anita Guha, Manhar Desai, Shammi, Habib, Heera Sawant, Indira, Azim, Shyamlal, Maqbool, Leela Sharma, Nandini, Meena, Jahangir Lakdawala, Ghani, Mohd Ali, Mohd Sandow, Babu Sandow, Sheikh and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.02.1958.

“Kal Kyaa Hogaa-1958’ has nine songs written by Saba Afghani and music was composed by Nisar.

Here is the detail of the songs in this movie:-

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Aao bachchon, aaya anokha aaya Khurshid Bawra
02 Kahe kuchh bhi zamaana Not known
03 Jiska palda bhaari dekhe Mohd Rafi, chorus
04 Ye nazren* kataar, abroo hai talwaar Suman Kalyanpur
05 Ek saath hi aag lagaa de…jag ke paalanhaar Not known
06 Tera aasraa hai mujhe bansiwaale Not known
07 Jaan baaki reh gayi hai dil gaya Not known
08 Kya suhaana samaa hain, aaj duniya jawaan hai Not known
09 Ab maano na maano tumhaari marzi Suman Kalyanpur

(* in the audio of the song it is nigaahen)

We can see from the above table that singer’s names for five songs have not been mentioned for the individual songs in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960).
However HFGK mentions Mohd Rafi, Nisar, Suman Kalyanpur, Madhubala Zaveri and Khurshid Bawra as playback singers for this movie.

Only one song from this movie jiska palda bhaari dekhe has been posted on the blog on 27.02.2017.

Today’s song is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Let us now listen to this song in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur.

Lyrics are by Saba Afghani and music is composed by Nisar.

Once again we wish a ‘very Happy Birthday to Suman Kalyanpur ji’!!!

5307 Post No. : 17392 Movie Count :

The Indian film industry has been absorbing and giving opportunities to all people in India, irrespective of their Caste, Culture, Language, Religion or Province. Maharashtra being ” The birthplace of Indian Film industry” (not my words, but a title of the English book by Isaq Mujavar), initially the film industry had a sizable majority of Marathi and Gujarati people. The Marathis had the talent and the Gujaratis had the money power. After some time, slowly people from all regions, religions and provinces joined the industry. By the time of the First talkie film came, the first film “Alam Ara”-1931 virtually reflected the representations of the variety of people operating in the film industry.

The producer director was a Parsee, the Hero was Marathi, the Heroine was a Muslim, the dialogue writer was a Jew and the cast included Punjabis, marathi, Hindu, Muslim and parsees. It even included an Afghani Muslim, who sang the first ever Hindi film song in the film. Indian films were made to entertain Indian people. No wonder along with Hindu Mythological films, many films with Muslim history and background were also made. Folk stories and Costume dramas were also popular. from 1931 itself, films with social content were made.

Majority films were based on Mythology, Romance, Folk stories, Costume films etc. Many films with Muslim backgrounds were made, but they were mostly on Mughal kings or Arabian Night stories. It is to be noted that the entire Hierarchy of Mughal Emperors has been the subject matter of Hindi films. Films were made on Taimur, Babar, Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shajehan, Aurangjeb and even Bahadur Shah Zafar. Comparatively muslim social films were less in the early era. The first ever known Muslim social film was Rashida-1935. There was no systematic effort to make Muslim Social films.

It is popularly believed that it was Mehboob Khan who made the first ever muslim social film, when he made the film ” Najma”-1943. It was his first film after he established his own Mehboob production and his studio. The film had prominent stars like Ashok kumar, veena, Sitara devi, Kumar and others. But this is not true. The honour of making a series of Muslim Social films must go to the Fazli brothers. Who were they ?

Today’s song is from the film Qaidi-1940. The film was produced by Fazli brothers, known to make films on Muslim background only.

The producers, Fazli brothers, were the sons of Khan Bahadur S M Fazal Rabb of Bahraich- about 125 kms from Lucknow in U.P. The elder brother was Hasnain and the younger brother was Sibtain ( born on 9-7-1916). Hasnain Fazli was born on 12-1-1912 in the United Province (today’s U.P.). Their family belonged to the noble Sayyads of Allahabad. Hasnain was a graduate of Allahabad University. Though his father was a Khan Bahadur, a Government Jahagirdar and lifetime Magistrate, Hasnain refused to do any service and did not complete his I.C.S. studies, as expected by the family.

He had a creative mind. He joined the film line. He was very keen on making a film on Muslim Society. In those days it was considered outrageous to produce a film on Muslim society for fear of the ire of the fundamentalists. However Hasnain broke the barrier and the first Muslim Social film Qaidi-40 was produced and directed by him under the banner of Film Corporation of India, Calcutta. Very cleverly, the film was made at Calcutta, ( though the film depicted life in Lucknow ), and not at Bombay to avoid any disruption in the making of the film. The film was made so well that it was received very well by all strata of the population, including the Muslims and became a hit film. After this Hasnain made more Muslim social films like Masoom-41, Chowringhee-42, Fashion-43 and Ismat-44. These films discussed Muslim family life and problems etc.

His first directorial film was in his 23rd year- Triya Charitra-35. Then came Sajiv Murti-35, in which Handsome Vijay Kumar from Himachal Pradesh was the Hero. Fazli brothers also made Dil-46, Mehendi-47, Duniya-49 and Khoobsurat-52. Hasnain was so talented that he himself wrote the film stories, screenplays and dialogues usually. Sibtain Fazli directed 3 films-Chowringhee-42, Ismat-44 and Mehendi-47.

After the Partition, Fazli brothers migrated to Pakistan. Sibtain remained in Pakistan and Hasnain returned to India to make 2 more films. Later Hasnain too relocated to Lahore and died there on 16-7-1957. His brother Sibtain ( 9-7-1916 to 25-7-1985) who had directed 3 films in India, made 4 films in Pakistan, including the most popular Urdu film of Madam Noor Jehan – Dupatta-52.

Film Qaidi was a Muslim Social film made by Film Corporation of India, Calcutta, to avoid disturbance by Muslim fundamentalists in Bombay. It was directed by Hasnain fazli, the elder brother. The cast of the film was Ramola, Mehtab, Nandrekar, Monica desai, Wasti, Leela Mishra Madhuri and others. Songs were written by Arazu lucknowi and the Music Director was Bhishmadev Chatterjee.

Prof. Acharya Bhishma Dev Chatterji. He was born on 8-11-1909 in Hooghly, West Bengal. He studied upto M.A. in English. He became a Teacher and taught English in a college. Few years after learning Music from stalwarts of Bengal, he left the job of teacher and joined Megaphone Record Company as a Composer. He used to meet Kidar Sharma in the Recording studio.

Taking permission from his company, he became a Music Director for his First film – Dil hi to hai aka Aulad-1939, made by the Film Corporation of India, Calcutta. He composed some Ghazals, which Ramola and Ramdulari sang. After this film, Bhishma Dev gave music to 3 more Hindi films – The Rise-1939, Qaidi-1940 and Hamara Hindustan-1940. All films made by Film Corporation of India and in Calcutta. This was the end of his Hindi film music .

Bhishma Dev was highly respected in Bengal for his knowledge of Classical Music. Even S D Burman learnt music from him. His nature was saintly. He cut many records on Dhrupad sangeet. I am not aware of his contribution to Bangla films.

Suddenly, one day, he left his job, work, music, family, everything and he became a Sanyasi. He remained so till he died on 8-8-1977.

The story of the film Qaidi-1940 was…..

There was a poor family of a Mother (Leela Mishra), Son Aziz (Nandrekar) and small sister Chanda (Madhuri). Aziz is B.A. but does not have a job. In frustration of not getting any job or a loan, he murders a rich man. His younger brother dies for lack of buying medicines. Aziz is arrested and jailed for 10 years. His mother and sister become beggars.

In the prison, Aziz assaults the jailor and runs away. To hide from the Police, he enters a rich man’s house and due to mental strain falls unconscious. The daughter of the rich man is Salma (Ramola). She nurses him. The rich man is a Dacoit. With his help, Aziz also becomes a dacoit and murder. Salma loves him. Laila (Mehtab), a dancer also loves him but not as a passion.

Police track Azizx. When they shoot at Aziz, Laila takes the shot on her and before dying in the arms of Aziz, reveals that she is Chanda, his sister and their mother has also died. She dies. Aziz tries to run away into a Mosque, but the Police fire on him and he dies in the Mosque.

Now let us listen to the song from the film Qaidi-1940. The singer is not known. This rare record was uploaded by Syed Zafar Shah, a close friend of our Sudhir ji.

( some of the information about the film Qaidi-1940 is taken, with thanks, from the book ” Forgotten movies on Muslim Culture” by P. Kamlakar ji).

Hullo Atuldom

This post is thanks to the morning programs aired by Radio Ceylon (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) and Prasar Bharati’s Vividh Bharati.

The first song that I heard this morning was from the 1967 Bharat Bhushan starrer “Taqdeer”; a song from “Gateway Of India” (1957) was just over. And Jyoti Parmarji announced that the segment was a tribute to yesteryear actor Bharat Bhushan (14th June 1920- 27th January 1992).

The next segment played songs from “Thokar” (1953), Taxi 555 (1958), “Saaranga” (1960) etc; and Jyotiji said that the segment was remembering Sardar Malik (13th January 1930- 27th January 2006).

I am sure if I had listened further, I would have heard some lovely songs of Zia Sarhadi Sahab (1917- 27th January 1997). This youtube link will give us the songs played in that segment.

Then around 9.30 a.m. I switched on to Vividh Bharati and I landed on their “aaj ke fankaar” and I discovered that today is LOIN’s birth anniversary too.

So many yesteryear populars’ anniversaries. So I set out on my favourite activity- trying to find a movie or song featuring at least two of those who are being remebered today. And I had my EUREKAAA!!!! moment sometime back.

Today we are having a song sung by Mohd. Rafi, written by Madan Mohan (not the music director, please note) & Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and composed by Sardar Malik. It is from the movie “Maa Ke Aansoo” (1959). It was a movie which had Hamid Ali Khan, Nalini Jaywant, Neelam, Lalita Pawar, Agha, Ajit Kumar etc. Dhirubhai Desai was the director and more details about the movie can be had in this post Meri jholi ko bhar de of December 27th, 2011. Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has given a brief about the movie in the comments to the post.

I am sure that it is well-known that Hamid Ali Khan was popular as Ajit. He started as an extra in many of his initial films to feed himself. He changed his name to Ajit on the advise of Nanabhai Bhatt. and played the main protagonist in films till sometime in the 60s when he switched to playing character roles and was most sought after villain in movies of the late 60s and most of the 70s. His character in “Kalicharan” (1976) pompously called himself “LOIN” of course that was his way of pronouncing the word Lion; similarly his “Rabbert” for Robert, “Mona Darling” are all unforgettable.
He would have been 101 today.

Sardar Malik passed away this date in 2006. He was active in Hindi Films from late 1940s and gave music for nearly 600 songs. I could readily recollect all the songs that SLBC played this morning. I just thought I will mention here that his children and grand children are connected with the music industry as singers, music directors etc. I also feel like mentioning that Hasrat Jaipuri was his wife’s brother.

Song-Hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan (Maa Ke Aansoo)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Madan Mohan (lyricist), MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

aandhi mein gunaahon ka diya jal nahin sakta
jo bachke aa pahuncha hai
anjaam tera tere hi haathon mein hai naadaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke fariston se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

maathe se siyaah daag gunaahon ke mita de
gunaahon ke mita de
neki ke diye gham ke andhere mein jala de
andhere mein jala de
do din ki khushi ke liye tu bech na imaan
tu bech na imaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
Allaah ka ye ghar to shaheedon ke liye hai
hai waqt sambhalne ka
sambhal jaa arre naadaaan
sambhal jaa arre naadaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

kya teri duaaon se falak hil nahin sakta
falak hil nahin sakta
is dar se jo tu chaahe to kya mil nahin sakta
to kya mil nahin sakta
thhak jaayega neki se buraayi ka ye toofaan
buraayi ka ye toofaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

Govind Nihalani joined Hindi film industry as a Cinematographer in 1974. In the initial period, he mainly worked with Shyam Benegal as a Cinematographer, both for his documentary and feature films. In 1980, he turned director and directed some socially relevant films such as ‘Aakrosh’ (1980), Vijeta (1982), ‘Ardha Satya’ (1983), ‘Aghaat’ (1985), ‘Drishti’ (1990), ‘Drohkaal’ (1994), ‘Hazaar Chauraasi Ki Maa’ (1998). Almost all his films, both as a Cinematographer and the Director were critically acclaimed.

With ‘Thakshak’ (1999), Govind Nihalani made his first attempt (and probably the last) in producing and directing a commercial genre of Hindi film, also called ‘the mainstream Bollywood’ film. In his interview held sometime in December 1999 which was published on the ‘Rediff On The Net’, Govind Nihalani revealed that Ajay Devgan was keen to work with him and he had a script ready to fit the role for him. Manmohan Shetty, who had produced some of Govind Nihalani offbeat films, was requesting him to make a film for the wider audience also. The eagerness of Ajay Devgan to work with him, getting Manmohan Shetty to finance the film and an opportunity to experiment with a different genre of film, prompted him to make ‘Thakshak’ (1999). Ajay Devgan and Tabu were the lead pair with Amrish Puri, Rahul Bose, Govind Namdev, Nethra Raghuraman, A K Hangal, Ravi Patwardhan, Uttara Baokar etc. in supporting roles.

As revealed by Govind Nihalani in a separate interview, producing and directing a commercial film was a new experience for him. His earlier films were made with a small budget, and he did not have the pressure of box office success. Hence, he made his earlier films without interference from any quarters. While making ‘Thakshak’, though he did not have any problem with his main actors, there were pressures from the distributors to make some changes in the script of the film with their own suggestions when they were shown the rushes of the film. That the film took 2 years to complete (as against his earlier films which he completed in less than one year) would indicate that he had to compromise on his script which Govind Nihalani had originally written.

I had not watched the film when it was released. In fact, I did not have any idea about the story of the film. The only thing I knew about the film at that time was a dance song picturised on Tabu which I liked and therefore had watched the song on TV music channels a few times. Sometime back, that dance song came back to my mind and I refreshed my memory by watching the video clip of the song. I liked the song so much that I marked in my mind to write an article on this song for the Blog. Subsequently, I also watched the film on You Tube.

‘Thakshak’ (1999) is a romantic crime thriller. The story of the film was in keeping with the socio-political situations in the country, particularly in Mumbai of Builders-Underworlds-politicians nexus. Ishaan (Ajay Devgan), is the son of Nahar Singh (Amrish Puri), the partner in the real estate business of Jodha Bhai (Ravi Patwardhan) who in reality is a gangster. Sunny (Rahul Bose), the grandson of Jodha Bhai and Ishaan are great friends. But their temperament is quite different. Sunny believes that the power flows from the barrel of a gun. Ishaan reminds him that that the one who thrives on the power of gun can also get killed by the same gun. The subtle temperament of Ishaan is further soften when he meets his lady love Suman (Tabu). The influence of Suman on Ishaan turns him to shed the violent life of the underworld to the decent life of a common man. But Ishaan is in dilemma as his oath of allegiance to Sunny to remain with him as his partner in crime and his conscious telling him to follow the life like a common man like his idealistic romantic partner, Suman. A further complications in these relationship – Ishaan and Sunny and Ishaan and Suman develops when Suman is the witness to the crime committed by Sunny in killing the owner of an old house to grab the plot where Ishaan is the partner in the crime. How the emerging situations themselves force Ishaan to come out of his moral obligations toward Sunny and follow the path of humanity is the finale of the film.

Now my 2 cents on the film. The story of a criminal trying to live a decent life like a common man has been tried in Hindi films many time. But in ‘Thakshak’, Govind Nihalani has given somewhat different treatment in that he has projected Ishaan caught in a moral dilemma of protecting his gangster friend, Sunny against whom his lady love, Suman has testified. The emotional upheaval Ishaan goes through has been well presented. All the three main actors – Ajay Devgan, Tabu and Rahul Bose have performed very well. However, the momentum of the story slows down due to 8 songs in the film most of which do not fit into the story of the film. Also, in my view, there was no need for the role of Nethra Raghuraman as a night club dancer on whom 2 songs have been picturised. I guess these are the additions which may have been suggested by the distributors. I feel that the story, screenplay, and dialogues with the exclusions of some songs and some unwarranted scenes would have turned the film into an absorbing thriller. Nonetheless, the film is interesting to watch at least once.

‘Thakshak’ (1999) has 8 songs, written by Mehboob (6) Sukhwinder Singh (1) and Sukhwinder Singh-Tejpal Kaur (1) which were set to music by A R Rahman. None of the songs has been represented on the Blog. I present the first song to appear on the Blog which is my most favourite song from the film. The song is ‘mujhe rang de range de mujhe rang de’ which is a semi-classical dance song. At the same time, the music composition sounds like that of a qawwali song.

The song is written by Sukhwinder Singh jointly with Tejpal Kaur and rendered by Asha Bhosle. There are some Punjabi words in the lyrics.

There is an interesting trivia as to how Sukhwinder Singh got to write this song as well as one more song for the film. He had come to ‘Chennai to meet A R Rahman for the first time. He was composing tunes for ‘Thakshak’ (1999). A R Rahman asked him whether he can write songs. Sukhwinder Singh promptly nodded and wrote the song under discussion. When Rahman asked him to pen one more song, Sukhwinder Singh told him that he has come to get some singing assignments from him. Rahman kept his promise and gave him to sing chal chhainyya chhainyya chhainyya chhainyya from ‘Dil Se’ (1998).[Source: The Asian Age, May 16, 2016].

While listening to this song, I felt that there is some spiritual feel in the opening lines of the songs as it is repeated several times. I remembered that Hazrat Amir Khusrow had written a Sufi Kalam, ‘mohe apne hi rang mein rang de’. This has become inspiration for some lyricists of Hindi films to include this spiritual element. One example is the song, o rangrez, tere rang dariya mein from ‘Bhaag Milka Bhaag’ (2013).

According to Sukaina Nagpal, the song was choreographed by her mother, Saroj Khan. [Source: Rediff interview appeared on July 3, 2020]. It is a 7+ minutes dance song picturised on Tabu who is not a trained dancer. Yet, she has performed the dance gracefully. The confidence of the Choreographer in the dancing ability of Tabu can be judged from the fact that she was covered in mid-shot frame to capture her hand gestures, expressions, and steps most of the time. Some of her shots were of longer durations, which is possible only when it is picturised on a trained dancer. Note Tabu’s expression and hand gestures at 5:36-5:42 in line with the lyrics. Probably, she must have toiled a lot during the rehearsals. All the supportive dancers did very well in synchronization of dancing steps as well as expressions and gestures. For example, watch 3:52 – 4:22 of the video clip. This is, in my view, one of the best dances choreographed by Saroj Khan in Hindi films.

I think after S D Burman, A R Rahman is one among the current music directors who is expert in picking the right playback singer suitable to his style of songs. In this film, he has used Hema Sardesai, Sujata Trivedi, and Alisha Chinoy among female playback singers for other songs. It is said that A R Rahman selects a playback singer only after he has composed the tune and the music for a song. His musical compositions decide the playback singer. For the song under discussion, he has used Asha Bhosle’s voice. And it turned out to be the right choice. Note how Asha Bhosle takes the octave leap from lower to higher pitch effortlessly. Towards the end of the song, her aalaaps are mesmerising. The song ends with Tabu going into a trance true of a Sufi singing.

Lastly, I must make a special mention of the flute interlude in the song from 2:58 to 3:34. I guess, it was played by Flautist, Naveen Kumar who has been continuously associated with A R Rahman since ‘Roja’ (1992) until he moved to Mumbai in 2003. Thereafter, Naveen Kumar played flute for A R Rahman, albeit occasionally.

I can watch the video clip of this song umpteen time because all those who are associated with song have done exceedingly well to make it a classic dance song.

————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1973-11)
——————————————-——————————

Today’s song is a lovely duet song sung by Mohd Rafi and Radha Saluja. I guess this is the first song by Radha Saluja on the blog. I am not aware much about her singing. As per the details available on online sources her voice appeared in at least three songs in Hindi films. One of these songs is being presented today.

This song is from the ‘1973’ movie ‘Wohi Raat Wohi Aawaaz’. This is another movie from the year ‘1973’ which was missing from the blog so far.

This movie seems to be an obscure movie of its time. Though this movie is available online and interested readers can watch it there. Also, I guess, all the songs of this movie are available online at least in audio format if not video for all.

“Wohee Raat Wohee Aawaaz-1973” or “Wohi Raat Wohi Aawaaz” was directed by Dev Kishen for ‘Mayur Productions’.

This movie is a suspense thriller kind of movie. It was produced by Vipin Desai.

It had Radha Saluja, Sonia Sahni, Samit Bhanja, Sujeet Kumar, Manmohan Krishna, Asit Sen, Kamal Kapoor, Dev Kishan, Chandrima Bhaduri, Preetam, Vidya Shetty, Jack Pot, Mayur, Deepak, Chhotan, Karekar, Ranjana Devi and others.

This movie introduced Rohit Kumar and Ketty Irani.

Mandan Puri, Jay Kajaria and Omi (of Sonik-Omi) had friendly appearances in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Vipin Desai who was also the producer of this movie. Dev Kishen who directed this movie also wrote this movie.
Editing of this movie was done by Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.04.1973.

This movie has four songs – all written by Hasrat Jaipuri. Music for this movie was composed by Sonik-Omi. Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Usha Khanna and Radha Saluja had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs in this movie :-

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Jogiya mera thhirke badan Radha Saluja, Mohd Rafi
02 Mera man bhatak rahaa deewaana Asha Bhonsle
03 Aayi tose milne deewaana dil le ke Asha Bhonsle, Usha Khanna
04 Sochta hai kya, aa kareeb aa Asha Bhonsle

As mentioned above this movie makes its ‘debut’ on the blog today.
Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Radha Saluja. On screen it is Samit Bhanja (I guess) and Radha Saluja performing on this song. This song is a lovely duet.

Lyrics for today’s song are by Hasrat Jaipuri and music is composed by Sonik-Omi.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

“Bhaagyawaan”(1953) was directed by Datta Dharmadhikari for ‘Roopkamal Chitra, Bombay’. The movie had Nirupa Roy, Raja Nene, Radhakishan, Yashodhara Katju, Ratan Kumar, Qamar, Baby Mala, Alhad, Balraj, Shakuntala etc in it.

This movie was a typical movie of its time, which is now 70 years old (how time flies ! ). The movie had this story :- (as recounted by our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh):- .

Chanda (Alhad) was a child with a branding of ‘Panauti’ (ill-fated). His father died as soon as he was born and with this shock, his mother too dies soon. In small villages, such incidents are attributed to the bad luck of the child and he was called ‘inauspicious ’by everyone. After parents’ death, Chanda and Suraj (Balrah Sahni) his elder brother were given shelter by his kind Mama and a tyrant Mami (Lalita Pawar). Mami always taunted Chanda. When they grew up, Suraj got a job and he got married to Sindhu (Nirupa Roy), who loves Chanda as her son.

Unfortunately Suraj is transferred to another town and he shifted with his wife. Soon the Mama fell very seriously ill. Mami blamed Chanda for this sad happening and drove him out of their house. Chand, in desperation travelled somehow to the town where his elder brother Suraj was staying. When he reached their house he finds it locked. Not knowing what to do, he decides to end his life. Chanda proceeds to the Railway tracks. While walking on the tracks he finds that at one place the Rails are broken and there was a big gap. This could surely cause an accident. Chanda decides to stop the train at any cost.

He removes his shirt and ties it to a stick as a flag. He hears the sound of train coming fast. He starts running on the tracks towards the train, waving his flag to stop the train. He starts shouting also. The driver sees him and tries to stop the fast train. The train screeches to a halt few feet away from Chanda. Train Driver, Guard and few passengers run to him. When they see the broken tracks they thank Chanda for saving them. Chanda’s brother Suraj and Sindhu also come running to find him. Their mama and Mami alight from the same train and thank Chanda, calling him BHAGYAWAAN and not inauspicious!

The movie had five songs in it. Four songs have already been covered in the blog. Here are their details:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting Singer(s) Lyricist Remarks
12355 Jaane de kismat ki naav 5 September 2016 Manna Dey Ramesh Gupta
14628 Naari nahin hai sapna naari nahin kahaani 8 September 2018 Asha Bhonsle Neelkanth Tiwari
16328 Meri bhaabhi ne bheja sandesa 20 April 2021 Sulochana Kadam, Madhubala Jhaweri Saraswati Kumar Deepak Only duet in the movie
17377 Soja…ye duniya kare to kare badnaam 24 January 2023 Master Prakash Neelkanth Tiwari

We can observe that three lyricists and five singers were used in the four songs that have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Bhaagyawaan” (1953). The song is sung by Sulochana Kadam. Neelkanth Tiwari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

In a movie where most songs were sad, melancholic or sombre in mood, this song comes as a breath of fresh air. It is a playful song where a mother is trying to calm down a child by telling him amusing tales. Going by the story recounted above, this song may have been lip synced by Nirupa Roy on screen for Alhad.

I consider this song a forgotten gem, that deserves to be better known among music lovers.

With this song, all the songs of “Bhaagyawaan” (1953) have been covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 12
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 27 January 2013, four songs from four different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7411 Bhagwaan do ghadi zara insaan ban ke dekh Bahaar (1951) Movie YIPPEED in the blog by now
7412 Aagaaz chala anjaam chala Raseeli(1946) 5 songs covered out of 10 by now

7414 Qismat ke khel dekho dekho mere babu Chham Chhama Chham(1952) 9 songs covered out of 11 by now

We can observe that one movie (out of four movies) whose songs were covered in the blog on this day ten years ago has since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with three movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (27 January 2023).

“Rasilee”(1946) is the oldest movie among the three BTYC eligible movies. This movie was directed by Hanuman Prasad for Jai Bharat Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Radharani, Sushil Kumar, Kanhaiya lal, Ramesh Gupta, Anant Prabhu, Ranibala, Meghmala, Shanti devi, Ramlal, Shaamlal etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from “Rasilee”(1946) in the blog. Only audio of the song is available. The audio quality is very poor. It is difficult to make out several words. Even the voice of the singer is not regognisable. But going by the HFGK entry, this song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Gafil Harnalvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hanuman Prasad.

I request our readers with keener ears to help provide correct words in the lyrics wherever applicable.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

kitney ae ae bedard hain ae
kitney ae ae bedard hain ae
bedard zamaaney ae waaley
bedard zamaaney ae waale ae
meree anjaan see

unse jawaanee ee mein milee
we jo bachpan mein

mere ae naaz uthhaaney waaley
mere naaz utthaane waaley

muhabbat ki sazaa aaa

itni sazaa aa
mere ae ?? ko jaayein
mere ae dil ko mitaaaney waaley
mere dil ko mitaaney waale

dekho mat tootey huye ae
dil ka tamaashaa aa zaalim
dil kaa tamaashaa aa aa zaalim
dekho mat tootey huye ae
dil ka tamaashaa zaalim
dil kaa tamaashaa aa zaalim
wo jigar chaakh hai
yaadon ko jalaaney aey ae ae waaley ae
