Sajjaad Hussain – a name that invokes a feeling of rare and precious stones. Treasures that are scarce, and extremely hard to come by. Treasures that are small in numbers to start with anyway. And treasures that are extremely valuable, like diamonds of unusual and endearing qualities. Diamonds imbued with qualities that invoke surprise in how the emotions blend with the words, that blend into the music, that is breathtaking at times. Treasures always number very few. Songs composed by Sajjaad Sb are such precious treasures, discoveries of the remaining few of which is always a titillating celebration for the aficionados.

Celebrating the centenary of birth today (15th June, 2017) of this unsung and at most times ignored genius. Genius who was steadfast in his execution, and a sophist in how the singers would render to his expectations. He was a self taught perfectionist who knew the value and uniqueness of his innovative creations, who did not follow rules for combining sounds and instrumentation. Recognition that came was sporadic, sometimes reflective of his eccentric relationships. And the lack of that response and accolades from his peers is what accentuated his cynicism – a gifted artist driven to isolation, for the lack of considerate acknowledgement.

I borrow from myself, as I revisit one of my earlier articles on Sajjaad Sb – “Jam Jam Rahe Meharbaan”, published exactly four years ago as of today, and include the following paragraphs.

Sajjaad Hussain – the enigmatic genius of the industry. A self trained composer par excellence, for whom the venerated Anil Biswas has used the epithet of the “only original composer” in Hindi films. An artist whose composition have the capacity to surprise you and confound you at the same time. No other music director comes even close to creating the fusion of the spoken sound and the music so seamlessly and so beautifully, and one is left wondering at the depth of this genius as he will move from one arrangement to another one, as the song moves from one antaraa to the next one.

Sajjaad Hussain – a name that many from even the same generation are unfamiliar with. A misfortune, I would say, to have lived in the same era and yet to have remained bereft of the astonishing musical creations, to have missed the experience of the ethereal modulations whose effects on the listener’s mind is both inexplicable and difficult to articulate. No doubt there are films like ‘1857’ (1946), ‘Khel’ (1950), ‘Sangdil’ (1952) and ‘Rustam Sohrab’ (1963), that many a mind would jump at recognition. But then what of the films like ‘Dost’ (1944), ‘Dharm’ (1945), ‘Tilasmi Duniya’(1946), ‘Kasam’ (1947), and ‘Sainyaan’ (1951). The films that are treasure houses of unparalleled and peerless melodies that will capture the senses and take the listener to unfathomable depths of emotions, and it becomes difficult to extricate oneself from the intricate extant of “Na Kehne Mein Dil Na Bas Mein Jawaani, Magar Dil Ki Mushqil Badi Hi Suhaani”. Or to draw oneself up from the depths of despair ensconced in “Ab Hain Khizaan Ki God Mein Roti Huyi Jawaaniaan”.

For those who savor this niche, the enchantment of “Ashqon Ka Ik Dariyaa Bahaa, Pyaasa Thha Dil Pyaasa Rahaa” simply does not go away. Neither does the dazzling incandescence of “Bujhaa Do Bujhaa Do, Bujhaa Do Sitaaron Ki Shammen Bujhaa Do” ever fail to illumine the deep gorges of the heart.

Since morning today, there are general and specific reminders and requests on Whatsapp; eventually it was an email by Atul ji that caught my eye when I opened my email box in the morning. Is there another gem from this peerless music director still awaiting and available? was the query. In a scramble, I started to search different places in my collection, and comparing with the list of posted articles. I was not sure whether there still would be one available. Around 2 pm I was in a position to reply to Atul ji that yes, I do have an un-posted song by him and that the post is now under preparation. 🙂

‘Dharam’ is a film from 1945, which carries 7 songs, all composed by Sajjaad Sb. So far we have been able to locate and post three of them. The fourth one comes online today. That leaves three more songs of this film to be posted. The good news is that for this film, all seven songs have been released on 78 rpm records, and their serial nos. are available. And the bad news – well, as far as my search and my enquiries have gone, the remaining three are yet to be traced anywhere in the public domain. Since the serial nos. exist, it is almost certain that they must be sitting in some private collections somewhere. More effort will be required to track them and get them.

The film is produced by Star Productions, Bombay, and is directed by Ramneek Desai. The songwriters are Baalam and Shewan Rizvi; however we do not yet have the specific information about lyricist for individual songs. The star cast of this film includes G Muhammad, Kumar, Premi, Ratan Bai, Leela Pandey, Madhuri, Maya Devi, Jamshed Ji, Ismail, Billimoria.

The singing credits, as per Geet Kosh, are Naseem Banu and Ratanbai. The available recording is not very clear. We have to strain to make out two voices, however there definitely are a few singing lines wherein one can clearly make out two voices singing together. I have made an attempt to color code lyrics, as per my comprehension, but I know it will not be accurate. I request other readers and friends to please help to make any corrections to the color coding of lyrics.

And so the celebration stands today. Birth centenary of Sajjaad Sb, and a very rare gem of a song composed by him is brought online. Memories are forever, the treasures of legacies are everlasting. So long as the sounds of these melodies continue to be heard. . .

“Pratima”(1945) was directed by P Jairaj for Bombay Talkies, Bombay. The movie had Swarnlata, dilip Kumar, Jyoti, Mumtaz Ali, Pithawala, Mukri, Zebunnissa, Shahnawaz etc in it.

This movie had seven songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the blog.

Here is the second song from “Pratima”(1945) to appear in the blog. HFGK initially described Parul Ghosh as the singer, but in the corrigendum, the singer name is corrected as Jyoti, who had also acted in the movie. So this song is a singer-actor song, picturised on Jyoti herself.

Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Arun Kumar Mukherji


Song-Bhool gaye bhool gaye tum pyaas bujhaana bhool gaye (Pratima)(1945) Singer-Jyoti, Lyrics-Pt Narendra Sharma, MD-Arun Kumar Mukherji

Lyrics

bhool gaye ae

tum pyaas bujhaana bhool gaye ae
tum pyaas bujhaana bhool gaye
jeewan mein pyaas jagaa kar bhi
jeewan mein pyaas jagaa kar bhi
tum pyaas bujhaana bhool gaye ae

tum dil mein chhup kar baithhe ho
tum dil mein chhup kar baithhe ho
nazron ke saamne bhi aao

ik baar hamaari palkon mein
ik baar
ik baar hamaari palkon mein
tum raah bhool kar aa jaao

The first song from the film CHAAND CHAKORI (1945), jogan banaa ke piyaa chhod gayo galiyon mein was posted on the Blog about 6 years back. Since then, no more songs from the film were covered in the Blog. In the write-up to the first song from the film, Atul ji had mentioned that very little information about the film was available online. At that time, I doubt whether any songs from this film was available on YT as I find that the first and the only song out of 13 songs from the film was uploaded by Atul ji on YT.

Even after such a long time, out of 13 songs in the film, to the best of my search, I have not found any other song of the film on YT. This shows how obscure the film has become over a period of time. Fortunately, more information about the film is now available online including the review, pictures of a few scenes and also mp3 clip of one more song from the film which I got only a few days back.

CHAAND CHAKORI (1945) was produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone and was directed by Kidar Sharma. The star cast included Surendra, Mumtaz Shanti, Shanta Kumari, Ashraf Khan, Kesri, Sheikh, Jugal Kishore, Marutirao Pehlwan etc. According to the box office report, the film was 6th highest grossing film among the films released in 1945.

The story of the film culled out from the review published in March 1946 issue of ‘Filmindia’ is as under:

Chakori (Mumtaz Shanti) is a beggar girl who meets Birju (Surendra), a flute seller. They fall in love. They start singing together on the street. Chakori is the ward of a Madaari (Kesari) who loves her and wants to keep her with himself. Apart from singing together, Chakori helps Birju in selling his flutes to the prospective customers with the help of Bhagwan (Ashraf Khan), an eccentric philosopher. Madaari becomes jealous of Birju and finds an opportunity to send him to jail for 3 months.

After his release from the jail, Birju misses Chakori and he starts misunderstanding that she may not be interested in him. Days passed and Chakori has now graduated from the street singer to a well-known stage dancer under an assumed name Neelam. As it usually happens in the Hindi film story, some coincidence brings them together. They meet now with a different financial status. Chakori is now rich with the fame she acquired as a stage dancer while Birju is still a poor man selling flutes. The usual misunderstanding between them arises. But at the end, everything gets sorted out and they are united.

From the story of the film, I am surprised how this film became the 6th highest grosser in 1945. I remember to have read sometime back that Mumtaz Shanti was known to be a good dancer and those days film audience used to watch her films in the theatres mainly for her dances. The twist in the story – from a street singing girl to a stage dancer may have been probably done from the box office consideration.

The film had 13 songs written by Wali Sahab (6), Pandit Indra (6) and Kidar Sharma (1) which were set to music by Bulo C Rani. As many as 7 songs were sung by Ameerbai Karnataki.

Here is the second song from the film ‘man mein basaa le piyaa ko’ sung by Ameerbai Karnataki. The song was written by Wali Sahab.


Song-Man mein basaa le piya ko (Chaand Chakori)(1945) Singer-Ameerbai Karnataki, Lyrics-Wali Sahab, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

mann mein basaa le piyaa ko

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics.


Song-Yaad mein raat kati…saanch kahoon more rasiya(Dhamki)(1945) Singer-Zeenat Begam, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Pt Amarnath

Lyrics

PRATIMA (1945) was produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies and it was directed by Jairaj. Dilip Kumar and Swarnlata were in the lead roles with Jyoti, Shah Nawaz, P F Peetahwala, Mumtaz Ali, Mukri etc in supporting roles. It was the second film for Dilip Kumar. Among the films in which Dilip Kumar acted in the 1940s, ‘Pratima’ (1945) may well be his least known film. I was surprised to note that not much information about the film was available on ‘Filmindia’ magzines of 1945 issues. The film had not fared well at the box office.
