“Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946) was directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Roshan Pictures, Bombay. This obscure movie, describe as a costume drama in HFGK, had Amirbai Karnataki, Prakash, Cuckoo, Rafi, Ansari, P D Lal, Malka, Hemlata, Agha Shapur etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Details about the singers of these songs are not known for any of these songs.

A few songs from this movie are available and so one can guess about the singers of this song.

And guess what ! This movie has at least two songs that were sung by Rafi ! Seeing that Rafi was struggling to make his mark as a playback singer in 1946, these solo songs sung by him in this movie must be one of his earliest songs in HFM.Indeed it was just the 11th solo song in HFM for Rafi in his fledgeling career.

Today, on the occasion of Eid, here is this devotional song from “Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946). Rafi is the singer. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Qureshy.

On looking at the cast, I find a name called Rafi. Could this be this Rafi ! It is known that he had acted in “Laila Majnu”(1945) and “Jugnu”(1947). So why he could not act in this movie ? I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie as well as on my guess about Rafi in this movie.

With this song, “Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Milta hai kya namaaz mein sajde mein jaa ke dekh le (Arab ka Sitaara)(1946) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-S Qureshy

Lyrics

milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaa ke dekh le
milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaa ke dekh le
hoga khuda ke saamne
sar ko jhuka ke dekh le
hoga khuda ke saamne
sar ko jhuka ke dekh le

fikr o alam
na koi gham
hoga tujhe teri kasam
fikr o alam
na koi gham
hoga tujhe teri kasam
thhodi si der ke liye
masjid mein aa ke dekh le
thhodi si der ke liye
masjid mein aa ke dekh le

leti hai bas usi ka naam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah shaam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah sham
leti hai bas usi ka naam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah shaam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah sham
aankhon se bekhudi ke tu
parde hata ke dekh le
aankhon se bekhudi ke tu
parde hata ke dekh le

duniya ko dekhta hai kya
rab se bhi apni lau laga
duniya ko dekhta hai kya
rab se bhi apni lau laga
karke neeyat namaaz ki
jalwe khuda ke dekh le
karke neeyat namaz ki
jalwe khuda ke dekh le
milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaake dekh le

“Khamosh Nigaahen”(1946) was produced by Roop K Shorey and directed by Moti B Gidwani for Shorey Pictures, Lahore. This movie had Pran, Manorama, Al Nasir, Majnooon, Jauhar, Zahoor Shah, Iqbal Sheikh, Kamla, Nafees, Neeta, Haidari, Fazal Shah etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Four songs from this movie has been discussed in the past.

Here is the fourth song from this movie. This song is sung by a male voice that I am unable to identify. HFGK is silent about the identity of the singer in this song (and also for other songs) in the movie.

Aziz Kashmiri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable raeders to throw light on the singer and also on the picturisation of this song.

[Ed Note: Singer is identified as music director Vinod himself, based on information provided by Shri Kelli Mistry, son-in-law of Vinod.]

“Dhadkan” (1947) was directed by Zahoor Raja for Raja Movietone, Bombay. This by now forgotten movie had Zahoor Raja, Jyoti, Mishra, Murad, Chandrika etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Some details are available in HFGK only for two of these songs.

Here is a song from “Dhadkan” (1947) whose details are not available in HFGK. On listening to this song, one can make out that it is sung by Shamshad Begam, with a couple of words uttered by a male voice (who could be G M Durrani).

Lyricist of this song is not known. Zahoor Rana, who had his fingers in several pies in the movie, could well be the lyricist, seeing that his name figures as lyricist in the two songs whose details are available.

G M Durrani is the music director.

Only the audio of this song is available.

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

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

Time to Yippeee another film. Today’s film is ‘Humjoli’ – not the one from 1970, but the one from way back in 1946. This film has 10 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Nine songs have already been showcased here on our blog. The last song for this film was posted in November last year. In that post, Atul ji has commented that the 10th song appears to be elusive, and is yet to be uploaded online. Today, as I checked for this song, I am unable to track it anywhere as yet. I could be wrong, as I have been earlier, maybe just limited by the way I searched for it. So I decided to upload this from my collection.

As per the Geet Kosh, the songs for this film have been written by Anjum Pilibhiti. Once again, not too much information is available about this songwriter, other than he was born in 1917 in the town Pilibhit; that he had a talent for poetry right from childhood, and that he got his first break in the industry with producer director Mehboob Khan, in the film ‘Najma’ from 1943. The songs of this film became very popular and contributed to the commercial success of this film. With that, Anjum became a regular songwriter for films produced by Mehboob Khan. In his entire career, he wrote approximately a little over hundred songs in about two dozen films. His last recorded credit as a songwriter is for the film ‘Akaash Pari’ from 1958. His notable films are ‘Humayun’ (1945), ‘Zeenat’ (1945), ‘1857’ (1946), ‘Anmol Ghadi’ (1946), ‘Anokhi Ada’ (1948), ‘Vidya’ (1948) etc.

The music for this film was created by Hafiz Khan (not to be confused with Khan Mastaana i.e. Hafeez Khan Mastaana, as many online and print sources do).

The star cast for this film includes Noorjehaan, Jairaj, Ghulam Mohammed, Jillo Bai, Mukri, Zeenat, Agha Jaan, Shabnam, Hussaini, Majid, amongst others. The film is produced under the banner of K Abdullah Productions, Bombay and is jointly directed by Ismail Meman and Lukman Ahmed.

The earlier posted nine songs of this film are listed below.

1.       Ye Desh Hamaara Pyaara Hindustan Jahaan Se Nyaara
2.       Koyaliya Boley Jiya Mora Doley
3.       Mori Bipat Suno Girdhaari
4.       Dukh Dard Se Jag Mein Koi Azaad Nahin Hai
5.       Raaz Khulta Nazar Nahin Aata
6.       Phoolon Mein Nazar Ye Kaun Aaya
7.       Kab Tak Teri Duniya Mein Ye Andher Rahega
8.       Jag Ki Sewa Kar Le Bande
9.       Wafaayen Meri Aazmaaoge Kab Tak

 

Although not indicated anywhere in the Geet Kosh, the last song in the above list “Wafaaye Meri Aazmaaoge Kab Tak” is reportedly written by Shams Azimabadi, as per the person who has uploaded that song online.

In terms of the storyline, I have not been able to locate any information so far. I request other knowledgeable and more resourceful friends and readers to please add more information about this film and its songs.

About this song too, there seems to be a little difference about the name of the singer. As we listen to the audio clip, the voice sounds quite much that of Shamshad Begum. This is also the opinion expressed by some other friends. However, the Geet Kosh lists the singer’s name for this song as Noorjehaan. It is possible that the error may be due to what may be printed in the booklets and other print material used as the source for information. Given that Noorjehaan was the leading lady of this film, and given the content of this song, it is my personal opinion that this song would not possibly have been performed on screen by the leading lady. And since Noorjehaan sang playback mostly for her own self, this song’s playback credit to Noorjehaan is most likely an error. However, the other side of the argument also cannot be dismissed as is – which says that the possibility for the on screen voice and the voice on 78 rpm record could be different, as is the case in some known instances. So once again, I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information to clarify / confirm the correct situation as far as this song is concerned.

With this post, we close the account for this song on our blog – with 10 perfect hits to the boundary. Time to sing the ‘Yippeee’ ditty once again. 🙂

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 11
———————————————————————-

#Claimer 🙂 #
“All the thoughts expressed in this write-up are based on real life experience and day to day happenings, feelings, and emotions triggered by such incidences related with the blog and because of the love, admiration and respect for this blog”
Any ‘resemblance’ of the thoughts mentioned in the write-up is very much expected (and is not a mere ‘coincidence’) with ‘everyman’/ ‘everywoman’s thoughts who is ‘Hindi movie buff’ and lover of HFM for which the author should not be held responsible or criticized or punished in ‘any’ form 🙂
Also, as this is the ‘man ki baat’ of the author the ‘word limit’ does not matter 🙂

 This is another one of my long pending posts which I longed to share since couple of years now. I had kept this song reserved for a ‘special occasion’. However as the write-up could not be completed in time, I missed some ‘special occasions’ and so this still remained to be shared.

But then, what could be a better timing and a ‘greater occasion’ than it is to celebrate our Atul ji’s ‘10,000th post’.  So, here we go with this post today heartily Congratulating Atul ji on his 10,000 or 10K posts on the blog!!!

BINDIYA (1946) was produced under the banner of Sun Art Pictures and was directed by Chimanlal Luhar. The star cast included Amar, Ragini, E Billimoria, Kamal Zamindar, Leela Mishra, Pratima Devi, Shakir, Bhagwandas, Leela Pawar etc. The film was reviewed in August 1946 issue of ‘Filmindia’. I was surprised to find for a change that the review was somewhat lengthier than the usual. After reading the review, I came to know as to why it was so. The additional length of the review was utilised for heavily criticising the director of the film for his inapt handling of the emotional scenes and for Prabhulal Dwivedi, the story writer for the film story based on a mix of several mythological stories.

Unlike advanced nations, preserving history is given little importance in India. Hindi film music is no exception. Governnment and Hindi movie industry, who naturally have the biggest say in this field have not taken any concrete steps to preserve (and share) the artifacts of this art form.

So, it is left to private individuals who through their efforts have managed to preserve it and who share it with other music lovers.

Behzad Lucknowi was one of many Urdu poets who entered Hindi film industry in the 1930s. However, in my view, he was also one of the least visible poet-lyricists among those who had spent over a decade in the Hindi film industry in the 1930s and 1940s. Some of his high quality ghazals like zinda hoon iss tarah ki gham-e-zindagi nahin, tumhaare bulaane ko jee chaahta hai, rehne laga hai dil mein andhera tere baghair are still remembered today. Most listeners of these ghazals would identify these songs with Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar and Begum Akhtar, respectively, as it so often happens in case of popular Hindi film songs.
