ik arz meri maan lo daftar ko jaana hai
mangal ka din hai aaj koi itwaar nahin hai

These two lines in the song “kyun garm sard hote ho takraar nahin hai” from ‘Chokori’ (1949) sung by Mohammed Rafi has made me to present this song which was not available on-line until SAREGAMA uploaded the audio clip of this rare song on one of the video sharing platforms in early 2019.

‘Chakori’ (1949) was the first film of Ravindra Dave as a producer which he produced under the banner of Ramesh Pictures. The film was directed by his younger brother, Ram Narayan Dave. The star cast included Nalini Jaywant, Bharat Bhushan, Manorama, Om Prakash, Randhir, Narbada Shankar, Uma Dutt, Cuckoo etc. The story, screen-play, dialogues and songs were written by Mulkraj Bhakri.

Ravindra Dave was the son of Karachi-based Seth Ratilal Dave who had a flourishing business of film distribution for North Indian territories under the name, Empire Talkie Distributors. This was the first film distribution company which undertook to distribute India’s first talkie ‘Alam Ara’ (1931) in Northern India. He joined his father’s film distribution company and helped his father in procuring distributions rights of films produced in Mumbai.

Dalsukh Pancholi was the uncle of Ravindra Dave who was already in film production and the owner of Pancholi Studio in Lahore. Ravindra Dave became the Production Manager in Pancholi Films. He got his first assignment as a director in Pancholi’s ‘Poonji’ (1943) along with Vishnu Pancholi. With his talent firmly established in film making, Pancholi gave him the assignment of writing the script for ‘Dhamki’ (1943) and directing it.

When Ravindra Dave was directing Pancholi’s next film, ‘Patjhad’ (1948), the partition happened and the communal riots that broke out in Lahore made him and Pancholis to come to Bombay with the completed reels of the film which was later released in 1948 after completion of the film in Mumbai. For both Pancholis and Ravindra Dave, it was like starting their filmy career afresh. Ravindra Dave directed about 30 Hindi films during 1943-69. Later, he shifted to Gujarati films producing and directing around 20 films until 1985.

Mulkhraj Bhakri, the story, screen-play, dialogue and song writer of ‘Chakori’ (1949) was born in Gujranwala in Punjab (now in Pakistan). His father, Moolchand Bhakri was the store-keeper in Indian Army Service Corps (IASC) at Pathankot. He went to school in Lyallpur (now Faisalabad in Pakistan). After completion of his Matriculation examination in 1931, he was keen to join the film industry.

Mulkraj Bhakri started his career as Cinema Manager. It took him a long time to get his first break in the film ‘Arsi’ (1947) as story and dialogue writer. After the success of the film, Mukraj Bhakri got two films – ‘Barsaat Ki Ek Raat’ (1948) and ‘Papiha Re’ (1948) for which he wrote story, dialogues, screen play and lyrics. Both these films were being produced in Lahore studios. Unfortunately, both the films became the victims of partition and were temporarily abandoned. These films were later released in some parts of India.

Mukraj Bhakri came to Bombay (Mumbai) after the partition along with his brothers, Lekhraj Bhakri, Deshraj Bhakri and Rajkumar Bhakri who were all associated with Hindi films. Mulkraj Bhakri became the rallying point for displaced film artists and technicians from Lahore. Bhakri who was the ‘de facto’ producer of the film ‘Chunariya’ (1948) gave Ravindra Dave his first assignment in post-partition India to direct the film. Next, Ravindra Dave got Prakash Pictures’ ‘Saawan Baadhon’ (1949) to direct. He also directed his uncle Pancholi’s first film in post-independent India – ‘Meena Baazar’ (1950).

Note: The profiles of Ravindra Dave and Mulkraj Bhakri up to 1949 are based on articles written by character actor, Janki Dass in film magazine ‘Sound’ – May 1949 and July 1949 issues, respectively.

So far, 7 songs (out of 11 songs) of ‘Chakori’ (1949) have been covered in the Blog. The song under presentation is the 8th song from the film to appear on the Blog. Song is written by Mulkraj Bhakri which is set to music by Hansraj Bahl.

Enjoy the ‘wooing and pleading with the beloved’ song.

This article is the 15900th song post for the blog

Blog Day :

4447 Post No. : 15900

So we reach another blog century with this post. This century materializes in 39 days, which appears like a fast century vis a vis the previous eleven centuries that took an average of 61 days each. These eleven centuries were took nearly two years (from August 2018 till July 2020). If we look at the rate of centuries ten years ago, then we had achieved a blog century on 20 september 2010 as well. That was the 30th century for the blog and that had been achieved in 17 days flat !. Eleven centuries (viz 20th century to 30th century were achieved at an average rate of 33 days per century.

The quickest rate of centuries were achieved during 2011 and 2012. Calendar year of 2012 saw 21 blog centuries, a record not surpassed since ! These 21 centuries were achieved at an average rate of one century every 18th day !

When I try to think about the by now barely believable rate of posts and centuries in the past, I can pinpoint a few reasons. And I also learn a few lessons from them.

Ten years ago, I was ten years younger. at that stage in my life, I was perhaps at the most productive and creative stage of my life. My enery level and motivation level were on a different plane. I also realise that my eyesight was still good and I did not need glasses to read fine prints. It was sometime in 2011 that I began to realise that my eyesight was going downhill. That is when I needed glasses for the first time. With that being the case, it was no longer possible for me to pore over the computer screen with the same comfort as before. This may be one reason why I hav slowed down. I need to take breaks from computer for the sake of my eyes, which was not the case prior to 2011.

Secondly, at that stage, I found it easy to wake up early in the morning and staying up late as well. My wife complained that I was neglecting my health by not getting enough sleep. Her constant nagging has finally had its effect on me. For the last two years, I no longer wake up at 5 AM in the morning and finish off six or seven posts for the day in three hours.

25 september 2011 was a crazy day when as many as 13 writeups were posted. First post appeared at 8:10 PM and the last post at 23:59 PM ! It means that I devoted the entire day at the computer doing nothing but posting articles all th time ! The same feat was repeated on 6 september 2012. The first post of the day appeared at 7:32 AM. The thirteenth and final post of the day appeared at 23:47 PM and that marked the 66th blog century for the blog !

Those were crazy days for the blog! The concepts of movies making their debuts, moving getting YIPPEED in the blog etc were not known. I did not have access to HFGK, so I was blissfully unaware if all the songs of a movie were covered in the blog. Unburdened by all these considerations, and helped by the fact that most well known songs of well known movies were still up for grabs, we had no problem finding sngs to discuss. All those songs, not yet dscovered were like low hanging fruits that were easy to pluck. We have dealt with all those low handing fruits and now we are dealing with songs that were relatively less popular and lesser known. I was gifted HFGK on july 2014 by our two Maharathi contributors Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh and Sudhir Jee, on the occasion of the blog completing 10000th post. By that time, we were also on to concepts like individual artists centuries, blog contributors centuries etc. We had also evolved the concept of YIPPEE thanks to the ever enthusiastic Pradeep Raghunathan. All these factors meant that we had to do more research that before to locate specific songs that met specific requirements.

These days we are not able to score our centuries at Sehwag like rate (16-17 days) but even scoring centuries at test match rate is not bad. What matters is that the musical juggesrnaut keeps moving and does not remain stand still. We have managed to remain free of a DOT day in the blog for this entire calendar year 2020. There were three DOT days in 2019, 7 in 2018 and ZERO in 2017. So we have ben like a non stop musical bandwagon for the last four years with hardly any stoppages. And let us hope that it continues that way.

Another thing where we had managed to staay true to form is in the selection of our Century songs. We manage to come up with special songs for such special occasions. Seeing that we have had 158 Blog centuries so far, we have discussed 158 special songs on these occasions. 158 is not a small number by any stretch of imagination. One would need more than 8 hours to listen to these special songs !

The 15900th song of the blog is a special song as well. It is special because

(i) it is a rare and obscure song
(ii) the singer is also obscure, though she comes from a well known musical family
(iii) The song is one that has been reused in at least two movies, both obscure.

The song is from “Bhed”(1950). This movie was produced by Amba Cinetone(Jal K Baliwala Productions Bombay). That is all that HFGK contains for this movie. HFGK tells us that this movie had at least nine songs in it, may be more. Mukul Roy (brother of Geeta Roy, later Geeta Dutt) was the music director.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed so far. All these three songs were sung by Geeta Dutt.

Here is another song from “Bhed”(1950). Is it sung by Geeta Dutt ? No, it is sung by Lakshmi Roy, sister of Geeta Dutt. Geeta Dutt is a legendary singer in HFM, but her sister Lakshmi Roy has sung very few songs in HFM. Most of her songs are duets with other singers. This song is an axception. It is a solo song.

This song is penned by Madhukar Rajasthani.

I made another interesting discovery. Five songs from “Bhed” (1953) were later reused in “Do Bahaadur”(1953). Unlike “Bhed”(1950), details of starcast of “Do Bahaadur”(1953) is known. “Do Bahaadur”(1953) was produced by Nari Cawasji and drected by Baburao Pahalwan for Baghdad Pictures under supervision of Shantaram Athwale. The movie had John Cawas, Shanta Patel, Rohini, Dalpat, Goldstein, Rajni, Chitalkar, Dilawar, Baby Balo, Aziz Premi, Madhu Apte, Ali, Baburao Pahalwan etc in it.

This movie too had music by Mukul Roy. The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs were same as those of “Bhed”(1950). the sixth song was taken from “Ustaad Pedro”(1951).

Such cut and paste job for music did not help the cause of “Do Bahaadur”(1953). For that matter even “Bhed”(1950) is a rare and forgotten movie.

Coming to Lakshmi Roy, she married producer director Pramod Chakraborty. Unlike her unfortunate sister Geeta, she enjoyed a long and happy married life.

As the 15900th song of the blog, here is this rare and special song from “Bhed”(1950).

A blog century on 20 september 2010 and a blog century on 20 september 2020 as well. So we have mnaged to achieve a different kind of “Blog Ten Year Challenge” today with this post. 🙂

As we can see, we are now just one more century away from the magic 16000 mark. Here is hoping that we will not just reach that landmark but also reach many distant landmarks in future. I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement.

“Ghar Ki Bahu”(1947) was directed by Narayan Rao and G K Devre for Kohinoor pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Paro Devi, Umakant, Ghulam Mohammad (actor), Pandey, Mehar Sultana, Manohar Ghatwai, Dhuliya, Babu Raje, Geeta Sardesai etc in it.

This forgotten movie had eight songs in it that have become extremely rare songs. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Ghar Ki Bahu”(1947) to appear in the blog. This song, even rarer than the one discussed earlier, is sung by Paro Devi and chorus. Taresh is the lyricist. Music was composed jointly by Shanti Kumar Desai and R C Rai.

Only the audio of this song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on Paro Devi herself.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie.

“Adalat” (1948) was directed by Vasant Joglekar for Mangal Pictures Production, Bombay. The movie had Baburao Pendharkar, Shalini Devi, Jog Madgulkar, Sudha Apte, Saroj Borkar etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Two song has been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Adalat” (1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Mahipal (later known as an actor) is the lyricist. Music is composed by Datta Davjekar. I must say the lyrics of Mahipal are quite impressive in this melancholic song.

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 the song.


Song-Kismat to dekho (Adalat)(1948) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Mahipal, MD-Datta Davjekar

“Bela” (1947) was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The story, screenplay, dialogues and Lyrics of this movie were by D N Madhok. The movie had P Jairaj, Nigar Sultana, Shrinath Tripathi, Pt.Iqbal, Krisnakumari, Master Mehmood, Rekha, Usha, B.R.Sharma etc. in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the ninth song from the movie. This song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that this melancholic song was picturised on the leading lady viz Nigar Sultana. I could be wrong as well, seeing that Zohrabai Ambalewaali’s voice figured in all the ten songs of the movie, so who knows, she may have sung for all the important ladies in the movie, in addition to leading lady. I request our knowledgeable readers tp throw light on the picturisation of the song.

When blog ten year challenge series was started in the blog the last year then the seris hoped to take up songs of those movies that were covered in the blog ten years ago and which were not YIPPEED despite the passage of one decade. That way, this series was also an aid in informing us about movies which offer us opportunities not only for Blog ten year challenge, but also subsequently about their potential YIPPiehood.

The project YIPPEE itself seems to have gone on a backburner, as is the project of seeing artists through to their centuries in the blog. The other project of discussing songs on th occasion of anniversaries of artists is somehow being maintained, thanks to the contributions of a few enthusiastic contributors.

Their enthusiasm often rubs off on me as well, and I too try and make some efforts, which have seen some progress in these projects. Three YIPPEED movie in August 2020 and one artist reaching century mark may not amount to much, but it still shows some progress.

To help me to quickly identify which movies and which artists to cover, I have build up some aids.

To help me identify movies nearing YIPPEEdom, Whenever a movie had two songs left to be covered, I mark movies them down in a earmarked excel sheetWhenever a movie had two songs left to be covered. I also have a list of songs of artists, and I know at a glance which artists are nearing their centuries.

When a song of “Baansuriya”(1949) was discussed yesterday (26 august 2020, it gave me the information that six out of eight songs from the movie had got covered. So, “Baansuriya”(1949) joined the shortlist of YIPPiable moviesyesterday.

When I checked up the availability of the remaining two songs, I found that they were available. So this movie can be YIPPEED easily.

Here is the seventh and penultimate song from “Baansuriya”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy). Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

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


Song-Tere saamne hum aansoo bahaayenge (Baansuriya)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

laakh hans ke chalo
laakh bach ke chalo
chhup chhup ke raho
tum milo na milo
gali teri ke phere lagaayenge
lagayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

tum badal jaao lekin na badlenge hum
maar daalega teri judaai ka gham
tere dar pe ye jaan ganwaayenge
gawayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

“Bansuriya”(1949) or “Bansariya”(1949) was a social movie which was directed by Ram Narayan Dave for Nigaristaan Films Production, Bombay . The movie had Geeta Bali, Ram Singh, Om Prakash, Randhir, Kuldip, Sofia, Gulab, Uma Dutt, Shanti Madhok, Ramesh Thakur, Raj Pal, Sham Lal, Madan Kapur, Raja Salim, Ram Avtar etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the sixth song from “Bansariya”(1949) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Mulkraj Bhakti is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

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

It seems that “dil tootna” was quite a flavour of 1949. This is the sixth song of 1949 in the blog containing the phrase “dil tod..” or “dil toot…”. 🙂


Song-Dil tod ke jaane waale o munh mod ke jaane waale o (Bansariya) (1949) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Mulkraj Bhakri, MD- Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

hasrat e barbaad meri ee
dil ke armaan choor hain aen aen
bebasi apni pe main aansu bahaaun raat din

dil tod ke jaane waale o
munh mod ke jaane waale o
tu jahaan rahe aabaad rahe
aabaad rahe
teri yaad mein ik dil rota hai
itna par tujhko yaad rahe
tu jahaan rahe aabaad rahe
aabaad rahe
dil tod ke jaane waale o
munh mod ke jaane waale o

taqdeer ke kaatib ne jis din n n
mujh bekas ki taqdeer likhi ee ee ee
sab ranj-o-aalam duniya ke diye ae
meri kismat mein ye lakeer likhe

ye badqismat barbaad rahe
ye badqismat barbaad rahe
tu jahaan rahe aabaad rahe
aabaad rahe
dil tod ke jaane waale o
munh mod ke jaane waale o
tu jahaan rahe aabaad rahe
aabaad rahe
dil tod ke jaane waale o
munh mod ke jaane waale o

meri mit gayi saari hasratein
mere armaanon ka khoon hua aa aa
toone pyaar ke badle dard diya
dil se niklegi yahi dua
gham dene waala shaad rahe
gham dene waala shaad rahe
tu jahaan rahe aabaad rahe
aabaad rahe
dil tod ke jaane waale o
munh mod ke jaane waale o
tu jahaan rahe aabaad rahe
aabaad rahe
dil tod ke jaane waale o
munh mod ke jaane waale o

Blog Day :

Today is 15th August, 2020 and we are celebrating 74rd Independence day. A national festival in COVID times, when all the festivals and celebrations have been kept low key and confined to own dwellings, very small gatherings or on the modern wonders of 21st century whatsapp and video conferences. But these small mercies have also been marred by the casualties. Most painful is the inability to visit the sick and not go the two steps distance towards the final rites of those who have lost this battle.

This past 6 months, we have all come to realize what really matters. Our family, friends and our inherent capacity to be happy and content, is the takeaway for us at the end of this. Surely, there is light at the end of this tunnel.

It has been 73 years since we have gained or wrested our freedom from a foreign power. A power, which still relishes its successes and spoils from the conquering and subduing of this ancient land of the Rishi Munis and sufi saints and great thinkers and poets. There is a saying “United we stand and divided we fall”. But here we are celebrating the event of the division of an ancient civilization. Over these 73 years and even before with the two world wars, we have seen elsewhere how those superpowers and their brethren create, fight and finish their unholy wars. Be it annihilation of Japan or the systematic destruction of Iraq(twice over), and the dismantling of the ‘khilaafat’ in Turkey, we in the end got free lightly, only with the three way division of the sub-continent and the loss of a few million lives in the cross migration or exchange of population, or whatever. Everything comes at a cost, and we, some would say have paid it. There is a very good reason for the tag of ‘sub-continent’ to this region of Hindustan. These are some things to ponder over.

The song I have chosen to present here is “Desh mein sankat aaya hai” from “Aap ki sewa mein” (1947). The song obviously of pre-independance era, as it ends with “Chheen lo , chheen lo ……..” . Meaning ‘Azaadi chheen lo”. Otherwise the lyrics are mainly about food shortages, or maybe it is talking about famine, in Bihar or Bengal.

By and large, our country is free of such fears, at least in matters of food. Initially with the extended lockdown, there were apprehensions everywhere, especially in the elderly. They were not totally unfounded with the transportation and all activity at the standstill, there is always a chance of things going horribly bad. But the bureaucratic vigilance and diligence at every step of the way saved the day for India. Indian bureaucracy, however maligned as “babus” is a fine institution so is the distribution network of resources and essentials, that much has been proved. We take these institutions for granted, until they are threatened, look to be losing significance. Only then we acknowledge what it was and what we lost.

Despite these apprehensions, all was fine at least in Mumbai. But one thing I could not find in my 3 visits to the supermarket, i.e. the humble ‘safed watana’ 🙂 .

Here is a bonus, a poem by Sahir Ludhianvi :

– वीरसा –
ये वतन तेरी मेरी नस्ल की जागीर नहीं
सैकड़ों नस्लों की मेहनत ने सँवारा है इसे
कितने ज़ेहनों का लहू कितनी निगाहों का अ’रक़
कितने चेहरों की हया कितनी ज़बीनों की शफ़क़
ख़ाक की नज़्र हुई तब ये नज़ारे बिखरे
पत्थरों से ये तराशे हुए असनाम ए जवाँ
ये सदाओं के खंम-ओ-पेच ये रंगों की ज़ुबां
चिमनियों से निकलता हुआ ये पुर पेच धुआँ
तेरी तख़्लीक़ नहीं है मेरी तख़्लीक़ नहीं
हम अगर ज़िद भी करें इस पर तो तसदीक़ नहीं
ई’ल्म सूली पर चढ़ा तब कहीं तख़मीना बना
ज़हर सदियों ने पिया तब कहीं नौशीना बना
सैकड़ों पावों कटे तब कहीं इक ज़ीना बना
तेरे क़दमों के तले या मेरे क़दमों के तले
नौ ए इंसान के शब ओ रोज़ की तक़दीर नहीं
ये वतन तेरी मेरी नस्ल की जागीर नहीं
सैकड़ों नस्लों की मेहनत ने सँवारा है इसे

तेरा ग़म कुछ भी सही मेरा अलम कुछ भी सही
एहल ए सर्वत की सियासत का सितम कुछ भी सही
कल की नस्लें भी कोई चीज़ हैं, हम कुछ भी सही
उन का वरसा हों खंडर ये सितम ईजाद न कर
तेरी तख़्लीक़ नहीं तू उसे बर्बाद न कर
जिस से देहक़ान को रोज़ी नहीं मिलने पाती
मैं न दूंगा तुझे वो खेत जलाने का सबक़
फ़स्ल बाक़ी है तो तक़सीम बदल सकती है
फ़स्ल की ख़ाक से क्या मांगेगा जम्हूर का हक़
पुल सलामत है तो तू पार उतर सकता है
चाहे तबलीग़ बग़ावत के लिए ही उतरे
वरना ग़ालिब की ज़बान में मेरे हमदम मेरे दोस्त
दाम हर मौज में है हल्क़ा ए सद काम ए नेहंग
सोच ले फिर कोई तामीर गिराने जाना
तेरी तामीर से है जंग के तख़रीब से जंग
एहल ए मनसब हैं ग़लत कार तो इन के मनसब
तेरी ताईद से ढाले गए , तू मुजरिम है
मेरी ताईद से ढाले गए मैं मुजरिम हूँ
पटरियाँ रेल की, सड़कों की बसें, फ़ोन के तार
तेरी और मेरी ख़ताओं की सज़ा क्यूँ भुगतें
इन पे क्यूँ ज़ुल्म हो जिन की कोई तक़सीर नहीं
ये वतन तेरी मेरी नस्ल की जागीर नहीं
सैकड़ों नस्लों की मेहनत ने सँवारा है इसे

तेरा शिकवा भी बजा मेरी शिकायत भी दुरुस्त
रंग ए माहोल बदलने की ज़रूरत भी दुरुस्त
कौन कहता है के हालात पे तनक़ीद न कर
हुकूमत के ग़लत दाओं की तर्वीद न कर
तुझ को इज़हार ए ख़यालात का हक़ हासिल है
और ये हक़ कोई तारीख़ की ख़ैरात नहीं
तेरे और मेरे रफ़ीक़ो ने लहू दे दे कर
ज़ुल्म की ख़ाक में इस हक़ का शजर बोया था
सालहा साल में जो बर्ग ओ समर लाया है
अपना हक़ मांग मगर इन के ता’आउन से न माँग
जो तेरे हक़ का तसव्वुर ही फ़ना कर डालें
हाथ उठा अपने मगर इन के जिलौ में न उठा
जो तेरे हाथ तेरे तन से जुदा कर डालें
ख़्वाब ए आज़ादी ए इंसान की ये त’अबीर नहीं
ये वतन तेरी मेरी नस्ल की जागीर नहीं
सैकड़ों नस्लों की मेहनत ने सँवारा है इसे
(साहिर लुधियानवी)
