“Sheesh Mahal”(1950) was produced by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Naseem Bano, Nigar Sultana, Pushpa Hans, Amarnath, Jawahar Kaul, Pran, Mubarak, Leela Mishra in it.

The story of the movie, as discussed by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse enyclopaedia, is as following:-

Thakur Jaspal Singh ( Sohrab Modi) lives in the prestigious and palatial house called the Sheesh Mahal. He is badly in debt, yet continues to live a lifestyle far over and above his means. His son and two daughters are concerned, and try to stop him from over-spending, but he disregards them. Then one day the inevitable happens, and Jaspal Singh has to leave Sheesh Mahal, which must now be sold by auction to pay off his debts.

Jaspal and his children move into a small room in the nearby slums, where they hope to spend the rest of their lives. Jaspal’s son, Vikram (Jawahar Kaul) finds employment in a mill, but unfortunately meets with an accident, and in order to save his life, the doctors amputate his leg, leaving his unemployed and dependent. Jaspal’s daughter, Ranjana ( Naseem Bano), attempts to secure employment, but proud Jaspal will not hear of this.

Ranjana gets employment, but she does not tell her father about it. Ranjana meets with a young man, Vikram (Amarnath) and both fall in love with each other. When this young man’s father, Durgaprasad ( Mubarak), comes to ask Jaspal for Ranjana’s hand, Jaspal finds out that he is the new owner of Sheesh Mahal, and that Ranjana has been working as a maid there.

Jaspal is furious, and taking his sword, he rushes over to the Sheesh Mahal with a clear intent of killing Ranjana, and anyone else who dares to stop him.

There he encounters Durgaprasad, who opens his eyes by telling him on his face the reality and that he is living in his past, which does not exist anymore. He warns him not to destroy the future and happiness of his children to pamper his false ego. Thakur realises his mistake. he drops his sword, but he too falls suffering from massive heart attack. He breathes his last accepting all his faults, but it is too late.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these songs :

Here is the ninth and final song from “Sheesh Mahal”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Pushpa Hans and it is picturised on her as well.

Lyricist is credited as Aaziz. I wonder whether he is a new name or someone who is known to us by some other name. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on him.

Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

With this song, “Sheesh Mahal”(1950) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Taqdeer banaane waale ne kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai (Sheesh Mahal)(1950) Singer-Pushpa Hans, Lyrics-Aziz, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

taqdeer banaane waale ne
kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai
barbaadi likh di kismat mein
ye apni shaan dikhaayi hai
taqdeer banaane waale ne
kaisi takdeer banaayi hai

aashaaon ki maala toot gayi
ummeed ke moti bikhar gaye
ummeed ke moti bikhar gaye
armaan bhi jal kar khaaq huye
armaan bhi jal kar khaaq huye
ab jaan pe aafat aayi hai
taqdeer banaane waale ne
kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai

ik jhonka hawa ka aaya thha
aaya aur aa kar nikal gaya
aaya aur aa kar nikal gaya
ham thhandi saans bhi le na sake
ham thhandi saans bhi le na sake
har shaakh e chaman murjhaai hai
taqdeer banaane waale ne
kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai
taqdeer banaane waale ne

The beautiful ‘अलंकृत’ verses like

गुन गुन गुन गुंजन धुन गूँजे भंवरन की. . .
and
बहे गंध अंध मधु मंद पवन उपवन की. . .

can only come from the thoughts of a poet whose insight into the human emotions and feelings is as deep, as his breadth of the knowledge of vocabulary and the grammar of the language, and then, plus his creativity to weave together the emotions and the words, in a manner that will make the mind pause and think. . . wow.

Remembering Pt Narendra Sharma, poet extraordinaire, on the anniversary of his passing away today (11th February).

The mention of his name, brings to mind first and foremost, that near divine creation of sheer poetry which, combined with the music of Sudhir Phadke, is considered by many as probably the best Hindi film song that best represents the cultural milieu of this sub-continent. Yes, I refer to “Jyoti Kalash Chhalke. . .” – a benchmark creation that has never been bettered. (Film ‘Bhabhi Ki Choodiyaa’, 1961).

And the mind then wanders more to gather such priceless gems as “Kahaan Ud Chalen Hain, Mann Praan Mere” (also from ‘Bhabhi Ki Choodiyaan’), “Saanjh Ki Bela, Panchhi Akela” (from ‘Jwaar Bhaata’, 1944), “Mann Mor Hua Matwaala. . .” and “Naina Deewaane. . .” (both from ‘Afsar’, 1950), “Charan Tumhaare Phool Hamaare” (from ‘Narsinh Avtaar’, 1949),”Wo Chaand Nahin Dil Hai Kisi Deewaane Kaa” and “Hain Kahin Par Shaadmaani Aur Kahin Nashaadiaan” (from ‘Aandhiyaan’, 1952), and on to the likes of “Satyam Shivam Sundaram” (from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’, 1978) and “Bhanwre Ne Khilaaya Phool. . .” (from ‘Prem Rog’, 1982). And yes, the theme song of the mega serial ‘Mahabharat’ from 1980s – “Ath Shri Mahabharat Katha. . .”.

Pandit Narendra Sharma was born on 28th February, 1913 in the village Jahaangirpuri, in Bulandshehar district in United Provinces (now Uttar Pradesh). He lost his father when he was very young. A true product of a cultured Brahmin family, young Narendra was hardworking, and very serious about his studies. It mattered to him, such that he worked part time during his senior school and college years, to pay for his own education. He passed his high school in first division from Khurja, and did his BA and MA in Hindi from Allahabad University. His budding poetic creativity took strong roots during his college years. His voice was sweet and tempered, and he became a popular and regular invitee at Kavi Sammelans. He also came in touch with other senior contemporaries like Sumitra Nandan Pant and Bhagvati Charan Verma, and his creative endowment blossomed even further.

The years of freedom struggle were ongoing. After his MA, he co-edited a paper with Sumitra Nandan Pant, worked as a scribe and translator for the Congress party at their Swaraj Bhawan office in Allahabad, and continuously published his works in magazines like ‘Madhuri’, ‘Chaand’ and ‘Saraswati’. During the 1942 Quit India movement, he was arrested and spent many months in Deoli jail.

1942-43 was also the time when there was an upheaval in the film industry. Himanshu Rai, the founder of Bomaby Talkies, has passed away in 1940. Devika Rani, his wife, had assumed charge of the studio, but soon, the differences with other stakeholders resulted in two camps within the company to start with, and then a final parting of ways in 1943. ‘Kismet’ – one of the most successful films in the history of Indian cinema, had just been released. Shashadhar Mukherjee decided to opt out of the company. He founded Filmistan Studios, and took away a major part of the talent team at Bombay Talkies. Devika Rani was struggling to keep the company afloat.

One of the creative assets that walked over to the new company with S Mukheree was Kavi Pradeep. Suddenly, Bombay Talkies was without their star poet and songwriter. Devika Rani was looking for an equal or better talent to take over the responsibility of song writing for the studio. The request for a poet’s position also came to Bhagwati Charan Verma.

February seems to be an eventful month for Pt Narendra Sharma. He was born and he passed away in this month. And yes, it was early February that Bhagwati Charan Verma came to visit him at his home in Allahabad. The offer was made, and initially declined. Narendra, then thirty years old, was just fresh out of his imprisonment (on account of participation in Quit India movement). He otherwise had his editing and writing work well settled in the city. He cited unfamiliarity with the film industry, and had neither the experience or the intention of writing songs for films. But as the conversation between the two progressed, it was Verma who eventually was able to prevail upon Narendra to come to Bombay.

On the train journey to Bombay, Narendra tried his hand at composing a ‘film-song’ type poem. He wrote “Ae Vaad e Sabaa Ithlaati Na Aa, Mera Gumcha e Dil To Sookh Gaya”. Ah yes, the curriculum in school and college included Urdu as the second language, and the scholar cum poet was also very familiar with the adab and the intricacies of this language.

On reaching Bombay, an immediate meeting was arranged with Devika Rani. On 17th February, he signed a four year contract with the company, as the resident poet cum lyricist. The film ‘Hamaari Baat’ (1943) was on the studio floors, and Narendra shared the piece he had written in the train. Anil Biswas, the resident music director, liked it so much that he immediately agreed to take it on as one of the songs in the film.
[Ed Note: The GK listing shows this song as written by Wali Sahab. The reference details mentioned above are from the chapter on Pt Narendra Sharma from the book “Hindi Filmon Ke Geetkaar’, authored by Sh. Anil Bhargav of Jaipur.]

Narendra wrote many more songs for this film, to be sung by Suraiya, Parul Ghosh and others, including the song “Baadal Dal Sa Nikal Chala Hai” sung by the music director Anil Biswas himself. Continuing at Bombay Talkies till 1947, he wrote the songs for ‘Chaar Aankhen’ (1944), ‘Jwaar Bhaata’ (1944), and ‘Pratima’ (1945). Interesting to note that he has not written any song for the Bombay Talkies film ‘Milan’ in 1946.

In 1947, once he was free from the company contract, he continued his work as a creative writer, and independently writing songs for films. His very first outing outside of Bombay Talkies is with V Shantaram’s Rajkamal Kala Mandir, for the film ‘Matwaala Shair Ramjoshi’ (1947). The list of songs he wrote for this film are impressive pieces of creative poetry,

  • Sundari Naar Sukumaar Khol Dil Dwaar…
  • Thaath Baat Se Math Mein Baitha…
  • Hey Ruk Kahaan Chali O Chandravadan…
  • Yamuna Tat Par Khelen Hori..
  • Son Bhanwar Ud Jaayega…
  • Dhoop Chhaon Ke Khel-Khel Mein…
  • Maal Gale Mein Daali Hai…

In 1953, he joined Aakaashvaani at Bombay, and was instrumental in the setup of the Vividh Bharti national service. The names of certain remarkable programs like ‘Chhaya Geet’, ‘Chitrahaar’, and ‘Hawa Mahal’ were given by him. He moved to the Delhi station in 1961, and then back to the Bombay station in 1966. His association with films continued over the years, although maybe not as prolific as in the 1940s and 50s. However, we continued to receive many an iconic songs from his pen. I would mention a few more – “Tum Aasha Viswaas Hamaare” (from ‘Subah’, 1982), “Kyon Pyaala Chhalakta Hai” and “Hum Chaahen Ya Na Chaahen” (from ‘Phir Bhi’, 1971).

Films were always his second preoccupation. Pt Narendra Sharma has been a mainstream poet and author in Hindi literature. Over the years, he has published 12 collections of poetry, 10 novels, and an equal number of other books. He holds a very eminent position amongst the Hindi literati in the twentieth century. In 1982, when the Asian Games were held in Delhi, he wrote the welcome song “Ath Swaagatam, Shubh Swaagatam” for the opening ceremonies.

I have picked today’s song from one of his earliest films after the stint with Bombay Talkies. With this song, the 1949 film ‘Sati Ahilya’ makes a debut on our blog. The film was produced under the banner of Kamla Chitra, Bombay and was directed by Vasant Painter. There are seven songs listed for this film. All songs are penned by Pt Narendra Sharma, and the music is composed by VG Bhatkar. Regulars will recall from previous discussions – VG Bhatkar is the same person as Snehal Bhatkar.

The name of the singer is not mentioned. On the record, the name mentioned is Menaka, but to me it sounds as one of the roles in the film, and not the name of a singer. There are other songs in the film that are sung by Kamla Kotnis. I request our more knowledgable readers to please help to identify this singing voice.

This song belongs to the ‘coming of age’ genre. As I mentioned in the beginning of this article, the poetic composition and the use of alankars is simply superb. Listen to this oh so imaginatively crafted song, from almost seven decades ago. Enjoy.

Today (11 february 2018) is the birth anniversary of Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931). People may argue that he has nothing to do with HFM, but I would argue back that there would be no HFM but for Edison. One out of Edison’s countless inventions was the invention of phonograph, which made it possible to record sound. All the HFM music that we are listening to now owe their existence to this paradigm shifting invention in human existence. We have no way of knowing how the great personalities of the past sounded like, but thanks to Edison, we got a device that could record the voices of people for posterity. That way the contemporaries of Edison and those who came later has their lives enriched to a degree that is beyond our imagination.

Of course, motion picture camera and light bulb are also his inventions. One can safely say that the modern life that we take for granted these days owes a lot to the inventions of Edison. All these inventions led to creation of major industries !

Lots and lots of other discoveries and inventions by lots and lots of other people have taken place since then. In the past, there was no way to preserve voice for postrity. Now it can not only be preserved, but now it can be shared with others easily with people that may be living on the other side of the globe, without leaving the comforts of our own homes ! What is more, these recordings can even be edited, enhanced etc. For instance, there are quite a few recordings that are of poor quality. But tchnology is now available that enables us to improve their quality quite dramatically.

It goes without saying that our blog makes use of lots of technologies that Thomas Edison and many others have created over that last 150 years or so.

Take the song under discussion for example. This song is from “Sheesh Mahal”(1950). Sheesh Mahal had nine nine songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the blog. Out of the remaining two songs, one song is available in good audio quality (even video is available). But there is one song which seems to be missing from the movie and its audio, as available leave much to be desired.

But as noted above, technology comes to the rescue. There are audio softwares available that can help reduce noise and enhance audio quality. I am not much experienced in such matters but still I have been able to reduce the noise in this audio to an extent where the audio quality is bearable. May be with experience, I will become better.

So, on the occasion of Thomas Alva Edison’s 171st birth anniversary, here is this rare song from “Sheesha Mahal”(1950). This song is sung by Pushpa Hans. She had acted in it as well, so assuming that this song was picturised, it was picturised on herself.

Shams Lucknowi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

This song becomes the 500th song of 1950 to appear in the blog. That way, 1950 becomes the second year, after 1949, to have 500 songs in the blog. 1959 and 1960 are two years that are waiting in the wings to join this group.


Song-Bhoole zamaane yaad na kar (Sheesh Mahal)(1950) Singer-Pushpa Hans, Lyrics-Shams Lucknowi, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar

duniya ki yahi baaten hain
duniya ki yahi baaten hain
din hain to phir kabhi raaten hain
din hain to phir kabhi raaten hain
dil ko tu naashaad na kar
naashaad na kar
yaad na kar
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar

zaalimon ki ye basti hai
zaalimon ki ye basti hai
rone pe duniya hansti hai
rone pe duniya hansti hai
aansuon se fariyaad na kar
fariyaad na kar
yaad na kar
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar

ae dost hamen gham sahne de
ae dost hamen gham sahne de
kisi(?) ki nishaani rahne de
kisi(?) ki nishaani rahne de
shaad na kar
barbaad na kar
barbaad na kar
yaad na kar
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

/‘ई’/

‘उ’ – उठो बुलबुलों तोड़ दो तीलियाँ

दिल की आवाज़ भी सुन॰ ॰ ॰

वो अगर चे सुन सकते, हम तो सुनाते ही रहते॰ ॰ ॰

But now, the voice has gone to distant lands unknown, where our call will not reach, and his voice will not come back again. It seems like a thing of yesterday that I saw him perform live on Doordarshan; or that I read about another award in the Filmfare magazine, that he had stood up and walked up to receive. The mind simply does not believe that he has not been with us mortals for the past almost four decades. कहाँ से ले के आएँ, अपने बूते की बात नहीं॰ ॰ ॰ दिल को ही समझाना पड़ता है।

Moving forward with the series of duets – I have to skip ‘ई’ because no duet song starting with this vowel is available. So I come to ‘उ’, as the starting letter for today’s song.

As I was searching for such a song, I came across this song from ‘Khaamosh Sipaahi’ of 1950, and I listened to it in complete amazement. And I listened to it again and again, and again. The composition by Hansraj Behl – it is so unique and so different, that I wonder whether such an arrangement has been attempted in any other songs.

The leading voices in this ‘duet’ song are of Rafi Sb and Geeta Roy/Dutt. But the entire song is arranged as a chorus song. The individual voices of the lead singers are not heard separately even once. There are lines by the chorus of male voices, and there lines by the chorus of female voices, and then there are lines by chorus of male plus female voices. The beauty and the redeeming feature of this singing is how the various voices have been arranged. When the male chorus is heard, then Rafi Sb’s voice is very clearly discernible a little above the chorus of male voices. When the female chorus is heard, then Geeta Roy’s voice is clearly discernible a little above the chorus on female voices.

I am not able to immediately recall another song which has been arranged with such meticulous attention to the sound of the lead voices in a chorus of voices. Really beautifully done.

And the words by DN Madhok Sb, they simply take one along with the emotions of an army preparing for battle. Yes, that is right, this song has been designed as a slow paced marching song of the warriors.

I have no information about this film – ‘Khamosh Sipahi’, and I request our more knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about this film and the picturization of this song. But the words indicate that it is a song that is exhorting people for a struggle. Given the time period (1950), it would seem that the song is urging the warriors, either for the freedom struggle or maybe the first invasion of Kashmir by Pakistani marauders (in 1948). Maybe it is the freedom struggle – the refrain of the song is

utho bulbulo
tod do teeliaan

The words are urging the timid and frail nightingale birds, to rise and break the ‘teeliaan’. This word ‘teeliaan’ here refers to the wooden twigs or splinters that are used to make cages for small birds.

The song, slow paced as it is, it still has a very exhilarating effect on the mind and the heart. The slow pace is almost a haunting that takes over the mind. And the mind wants to listen to this sound again and again. Such a wonderful creation – and I would lay all the kudos on Hansraj Behl for the composition, the arrangement  of the minimal music, and such a beautiful play of chorus voices entwined around the lead voices – it is simply amazing. There is some leading violin music, but after that when the singing starts, there simply is no music except for a very low rhythm of drum beats. The entire creation is so enchanting.

Just listen to this, and be amazed.

PS: There is one word in the lyrics of the first antaraa, that I am not sure that I have got it correct. Maybe it is, maybe the meaning fits in, or maybe not. I request other readers to please help confirm or correct this word. 🙂

Song – Utho Bulbulo Tod Do Teeliyaan (Khamosh Sipaahi) (1950) Singer – Geeta Roy/Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – Hansraj Behl
Mohammed Rafi + Male Chorus
Geeta Roy/Dutt + Female Chorus
Rafi + Geeta + All Chorus

Lyrics

utho bulbulo
tod to teeliaan
kahaan qaid thandi hawaayen kahaan
utho bulbulo
tod to teeliaan
kahaan qaid thandi hawaayen kahaan
utho bulbulo

tumhaare liye abr ghir ghir ke aaye
abr ghir ghir ke aaye
khushi jholion mein wo bhar bhar ke laaye
wo bhar bhar ke laaye
wo bhoola hua phir banega samaan
utho bulbulo
tod to teeliaan
kahaan qaid thandi hawaayen kahaan
utho bulbulo

himaala ne tum ko pukaara hai aao
pukaara hai aao
meri chotiyon par wohi geet gaao
meri chotiyon par wohi geet gaao
ke sun kar dehal jaaye saara jahaan
utho bulbulo
tod to teeliaan
kahaan qaid thandi hawaayen kahaan
utho bulbulo

mujhe khabr hai par kate hain tumhaare
par kate hain tumhaare
utho waqt deta hai tum ko ishaare
ho tum ko ishaare
gaya waqt phir jaa ke aaye kahaan
utho bulbulo
utho bulbulo
utho bulbulo

The box office successes of ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’ (1960) and ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963) were mainly attributed to musical bonanzas they offered to the cinegoers in general. In that process, the captain of the ships, i.e., the director of the films who had an important role in making the films the box office success was largely ignored. In those days, like many, I identified the first film with Guru Dutt and the music director Ravi. In case of ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), I identified the film with the musical and lyrical feasts of Roshan and Sahir Ludhianvi. I was not aware at that time that these two successful films were directed by M Sadiq.

After few years when I did come to know of M Sadiq, I thought of him as a new upcoming director who specialised in directing Muslim social and historical films. This was borne out of the facts that his subsequent two films were ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967) and ‘Noor Jahan’ (1967). How wrong I was!

Last year, while doing a research on producer-director  AR Kardar, I became aware of the fact that M Sadiq (10/03/1910 – 03/10/1971) started his filmy career as early as 1932 as screen-play writer for Punjabi film, ‘Heer Ranjha’ (1932) which was a debut film for AR Kardar as the director of a talkie film.

After 1932, there appears to be a big gap in his filmy career if I go by his filmography. However, browsing through many pages of various ‘Filmindia’ issues gives me an indication that M Sadiq assisted AR Kardar all through 1932 to 1942 in his various directorial ventures, in various capacity – story/screen-play/dialogue writer, editor in addition to being one of his regular Assistant Directors.

By 1942, M Sadiq had become one of the two key assistants to AR Kardar along with SU Sunny. (SU Sunny later directed films like ‘Udan Khatola’ (1955), ‘Kohinoor’ (1960) and ‘Paalki’ (1966)). Baburao Patel, Editor of ‘Filmindia’ magazine had described them as ‘the left hand and the right hand of AR Kardar’ without identifying as to who was left hand and who was the right hand. He had also nicknamed them as ‘little Kardars’.

When AR Kardar set up his film production company, Kardar Productions in 1942 with his maiden film ‘Sharda’ (1942) as a producer-director, he gave an additional responsibility to M Sadiq as the film editor. In his next film, ’Namaste’ (1943),  AR Kardar entrusted  M Sadiq and SU Sunny to jointly direct the film. Kardar’s ‘Jeewan’ (1944) appears to be the first film which M Sadiq directed independently. However, this film did not do well on the box office. In the same year, Jaimini Dewan Productions gave him the opportunity to direct ‘Rattan’ (1944). The film became a box office bonanza for its producer. However, the credit for the success of the film was mainly given to the musical scores by Naushad.

From 1946 through 1950, M Sadiq directed 8 films which included ‘Shaam Savera’ (1946), ‘Daak Bangla’ (1947), ‘Kaajal’ (1948), ‘Chaar Din’ (1949) and ‘Sabak’ (1950), the last mentioned film was his first home production under the name of Sadiq Productions. In the 1950s, he directed 11 films, mostly his home productions like ‘Saiyaan’ (1951), ‘Shabaab’ (1954), ‘Musafirkhana’ (1955), “Chhoo Mantar’ (1956), ‘Mai Baap’ (1957), ‘Duniya Rang Rangeeli’ (1957) and ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958).

However, many of his home production films did not fare well on the box office. When Guru Dutt started ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’ (1960), being a Muslim social film, he wanted the film to be directed by a Muslim director who was well versed in Lucknowi etiquette. Those days, M Sadiq had a lot of financial difficulties and Guru Dutt wanted to help him (as mentioned in Nasreen Munni Kabir’s documentary ‘In Search of Guru Dutt’).

‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’ (1960) was a box office hit film. However, the credit for the success of the film went mainly to the musical scores of Ravi with the lyrics of Shakeel Badayuni. In Hindi film industry, a director working for a producer who also happens to be an ace director would remain in his shadow. For, the people will always have a doubt whether the ace director was a ‘shadow director’ of his own film. The song sequences in the film as Abrar Alvi puts it “. . .bear the stamp of Guru Dutt. . .” (Source: ‘Ten Years with Guru Dutt’). This kind of aspersions were also made in the case of  Radhu Karmakar who directed RK Films’ ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960) and of Abrar Alvi himself who directed Guru Dutt’s ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ (1962).

In spite of the success of ‘Chaudhavin Ka Chaand’ (1960), M Sadiq did not get offers for directing the films until ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963). Once again the success of this film did not help him in his career as in this case also, the credit for the success of the film was mainly shared by its super hit songs composed by  Roshan on the lyrics of Sahir Ludhianvi.

I feel that  it was unfortunate that the film industry did not recognise the contribution of M Sadiq in the success of  films like ‘Rattan’ (1944), ‘Shabaab’ (1954), ‘Chadhavin Kaa Chaand’ (1960) and ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963). I have seen all these films and I feel that M Sadiq had done a wonderful job as a director. Guru Dutt was indeed a master craftsman in picurisation of songs. He may have done the song picturisation himself in ‘Chaudhavin Ka Chaand’ (1960).

In my view, M Sadiq was not a novice in picturisation of song sequence in the films. Having experience of directing films for 20 years at the time when he directed ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), I do not think that he would not have done justice to the song sequences of ‘Chaudhvin Kaa Chaand’ (1960). Just note how beautiful was his picturisation of the song Paaon Chhoo Lene Do Phoolon Ko Inaayat Hogi. It is a difficult situational song where Pradeep Kumar’s open romantic proposal has to be  met with a restrained modesty of the heroine Bina Rai. In this song, the director has also to make the sequence of picturisation interesting with an added handicap of the expressionless Pradeep Kumar. Nonetheless, the director had succeeded at least for me as it is one of those songs where I like to watch and listen on the video clip rather than listening on the mp3 clip.

Again, after the success of ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), M Sadiq had to wait for another 4 years to get the directorial assignments of ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967) and ‘Noor Jahan’ (1967). Unfortunately, both these films, despite good musical scores, did not fare well at the box office. Sometime in 1970, M Sadiq migrated to Pakistan and directed the film ‘Baharon Phool Barsaao’ (1972) under his own banner, Sadiq Productions. In a couple of Pakistani articles on the migration of film artists, it has been mentioned that M Sadiq came to Pakistan on an assignment to make ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao’ (1972). However, when the film was more than half way through, he left for the heavenly abode on 03/10/1971 in Lahore.

Today, I am presenting a multiple version song, “Meri Mitti Ki Duniya Niraali. . . Jahaan Bhagwaan Basen’ from the film ‘Shaam Savera’ (1946) which makes a debut on our blog today. The film was directed by M Sadiq. The star cast included Swarnalata, Wasti, Sulochana Chatterjee, Rafiq Ghaznavi, Badri Prasad, Pratima Devi  etc.

I became aware of this song only a few days back when I heard it in the voice of SD Batish. I immediately fell in love with the song for its rendition and the lyrics. In fact, its first verse led me to minutely grasp the subsequent part of the lyrics. As I was planning to present the song for the blog, somewhere I got confused with the film ‘Subah Shaam’ (1944) which has already made a debut on the blog. Since this film is not in the verge of attaining the status of a ‘yippied’ film, I felt that there was no urgency in presenting the song.

Yesterday, I heard this song once again. But this time, it was in the voice of Rafiq Ghaznavi. After checking on the website, it transpired that it was a multiple version song. It was at this stage I realised that the song in reference was from ‘Shaam Savera’ (1946) which is yet to make a debut on the Blog.

In my 3 decades of trekking in the Himalayas for soaking in the nature, I had always felt that there is Godliness in the nature – “jahaan bhagwan base”.

“Rasta”(1947) was directed by Har Prasad for Fazli Brothers, Bombay. This obscure “social” movie had a starcast of Mayadevi, Abdul Latif, Shahida, Ameena, Razi, Zaki, Wazir Mohammad Khan, Anwar, Anwari, Ismat sultana, Abbas, Sharbat Ali etc. Most of these names ring no bells.

According to HFGK, there are six songs in the movie. Singers of these songs are not mentioned.

Song number 1 and 6 of the movie have the same mukhda viz “Nayi bahaaren aayin” which suggests that they could be two parts of the same song, though their record numbers differ.

This song is available in public domain for last few years. Listening to this song, one is pleasantly surprised to discover that the song is sung by Geeta Dutt and it happens to be one of her earliest songs.

The movie had two lyricists, viz. Raziuddin and Arsh Haideri, but the breakup of the songs between them is not known.

Music is composed by Zafar Khursheed.

So here is this song from “Rasta”(1947). It is the first song from this movie to appear in the blog.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Rasta”(1947) makes its debut in the blog.

‘Pardesi Mehmaan’ (1948) was directed by Aspi for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The move had Kamal Kapoor, Husn Banu, Rajrani, Ghulam Mohammed, Sheikh Hasan, Abdul Rehman, Afghan Sandow, Azim, Bipin Gupta, Kaizer etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from ‘Pardesi Mehmaan’ (1948) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Husn Bano. Pt Indra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Husn Bano’s name is there in the cast, it can be assumed that the song is picturised on herself.


Song-Haay rasiya bada naadaan (Pardesi Mehmaan)(1948) Singer-Husn Bano, Lyrics-Pt Indra, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

haay haay piya pukaare re
haay haay piya pukaare re
haay ae
rasiya bada naadaan
raat bhar chaand nihaare re
raat bhar chaand nihaare re

kyun dil mera dhadak raha hai
kyun dil mera dhadak raha hai
kya rasiya tadap raha hai
kyun gin rahin pyaasi aankhiyaan
kyun gin rahin pyaasi aankhiyaan
haay piya milan ki ghadiyaan
haay ae
dil mein uthhe toofaan
lage kab naav kinaare re
lage kab naav kinaare re
haay ae
rasiya bada naadaan
raat bhar chaand nihaare re
raat bhar chaand nihaare re
haay ae
jal jaaye meri jaan
raat bhar dhoom machaawe re
raat bhar dhoom machaawe re
raat bhar dhoom machaawe re
raat bhar dhoom machaawe re

हाए॰॰ए
रसिया बड़ा नादान
रात भर चाँद निहारे रे
रात भर चाँद निहारे रे
हाए॰॰ए
जल जाये मेरी जान
रात भर धूम मचावे रे
रात भर धूम मचावे रे
हाए
रसिया बड़ा नादान
रात भर चाँद निहारे रे
रात भर चाँद निहारे रे

मैं पायल शोर सुनाऊँ
मैं पायल शोर सुनाऊँ
वो सुने कूक कोयल की
बेदर्दी मुड़ मुड़ देखे
बेदर्दी मुड़ मुड़ देखे
ना जाने बात वो दिल की
मेरे॰॰ए
सिसक रहे अरमान
हाय हाय पिया पुकारे रे
हाय हाय पिया पुकारे रे
हाय॰॰ए
रसिया बड़ा नादान
रात भर चाँद निहारे रे
रात भर चाँद निहारे रे

क्यों दिल मेरा धड़क रहा है
क्यों दिल मेरा धड़क रहा है
क्या रसिया तड़प रहा है
क्यों गिन रहीं प्यासी अखियाँ
क्यों गिन रहीं प्यासी अखियाँ
हाय पिया मिलन की घड़ियाँ
हाय॰॰ए
दिल में उठे तूफान
लगे कब नाव किनारे रे
लगे कब नाव किनारे रे
हाय॰॰ए
रसिया बड़ा नादान
रात भर चाँद निहारे रे
रात भर चाँद निहारे रे
हाए॰॰ए
जल जाये मेरी जान
रात भर धूम मचावे रे
रात भर धूम मचावे रे
रात भर धूम मचावे रे
रात भर धूम मचावे रे
