Today’s song is quite a rare song. It is from film Khush Raho-49. This was a C grade stunt film, made by Sushil pictures, Bombay. Directed by Harbans,it had music by Shiv Dayal Batish. I say this is a rare song, for 2 reasons. One- in most cases, producers of stunt films were not interested in making commercial records of songs of their films. Reason – Usually, the composers of such low budget films were also unknown or less known composers. If at all, a well known composer was there, he rarely gave his best shot to stunt film, which attracted a fixed, low class audience. Second – Music or songs were not what attracted the audience of stunt films. So the songs rarely became well known and the records-if brought out at all-did not sell.

Therefore C grade film songs are usually a matter of interest to Collectors. These songs are not even uploaded on sites like U-Tube and that is why such film songs are difficult to be found. Only in extremely rare cases a song from a stunt film is famous and popular. off hand, I can remember one such song , ” Humen to loot liya mil ke husn walon ne” from film Al Hilaal-58. It became famous and had the honour of becoming the 5000 th song on this Blog, with write ups from Raja ji, Sudhir ji and Atul ji, on 13-11-2011. Of course, there could be some more famous songs from stunt films.

The cast of the film Khush Raho-49 was Bhagwan, Baburao (Pehalwan), Vasantrao (Pehalwan), Sarla, Leela Gupte, Ratan Piya and others. In the decade of 40s, the number One stunt film maker, director, producer and actor was undoubtedly Master Bhagwan. Till his first social film ” Albela ” -51 hit the screen and became an Iconic musical film, Bhagwan was into stunt films only.

Famous Film Historian and Author of Marathi, Hindi and English books on old films and artistes, Isak Mujawar ( 22-5-1934 to 26-2-2015 ) has written over 30 books. Mujawar, Master Bhagwan and C Ramchandra were good friends and Mujawar has written about them in his books. He has given first hand information gathered from them. Mujawar has written a book ” Ek Albela ” on Master Bhagwan. Many less known facts and anecdotes about Bhagwan, CR and other artistes are given in this book.

When Bhagwan was directing- and acting in- film Bahadur Kisan-37, he got introduced to CR or Ram Chitalkar,as he was known then.Soon they became thick friends. When Bhagwan got Tamil film ‘ Jaykodi’ to direct in Madras, he took Chitalkar as the Music Director. They did one more film ‘ Van Mohini’ together in Madras and returned to Bombay. Actually Bhagwan had received several offers to direct more films, including one from AVM also, but his brother Shankar Palav came to Madras and forced him to return to Bombay.

Harishchandrarao Kadam, who had floated his own production outfit Harishchandra Pictures, was waiting to offer a Hindi film,” Sukhi Jivan” for Bhagwan to direct. The offer was to act in and direct the film for Rs. 3000 pm salary plus 20% share in the profits of the film. However, the producer wanted to continue with his MD, Naidu for this film too. Naidu was once an assistant to Anil Biswas and Kadam had promissed Anil Biswas to give this film to Naidu. However, Bhagwan flatly refused and said,” only Chitalkar will be the MD or I wont do the film”. Now there was a problem, as both were adamant for their MD. Finally, Anil Biswas came to mediate. Bhagwan told him,” Chitalkar came to Madras with me on my calling and also returned to Bombay with me,though he too had more offers there. Now I can not leave him high and dry. It is with him or no film”

Anil Biswas told the producer, ” OK. you give this film to Chitalkar and next film to Naidu”. The problem was solved and Ram Chitalkar got his first Hindi film ‘ Sukhi Jivan’-42 as an independent MD. He began his career and rose to heights which we all know very well. Harishchandrarao kadam gave film ‘ Watan ki Pukar ‘-43 to Naidu. Like this many interesting anecdotes are described in the book ‘ Ek Albela ‘, about CR and Bhagwan. I intend to weave some stories in my forthcoming posts.

In the cast there is a very romantic name-Ratan Piya. He was born on 5-3-1904 at Lucknow. His father Pt. Madan Mohan was secretary to Motilal Nehru. His father was a theatre lover and so started his own Theatre company at Allahabad. Ratan, after his matriculation started working in it. He was trained to write songs for its dramas. Their company was patronised by the Viceroy, who paid Rs. 20 p.m. as his Patronage !

Ratan debuted as a Lyricist in film Pakke Badmash-1939. For this film, he even wrote an English song. His films as a Lyricist were Zaban-43, Mali-44, Umang-44 Nai Baat-47 and Batohi-48. For sustenance, he even acted in few films like, Shakuntala-43, Umang-44, Meena-44, Mahakavi Kalidas-44, Panna Dai-45, Khush Raho-49, Janam Patrika-49 and Begunah-49. After this Ratan Piya returned to Allahabad to look after their Theatre when his father died.

There were 3 Major Centres for Hindi Film Production in India in the early days. Calcutta,Lahore and Bombay.

From the period of Talkie films, all the 3 centres became very active and many films with lot of songs were produced.Initially,in the Talkie films,even the Dialogues were in poetry type,so it was difficult to demarcate Dialogues and songs separately.Films like Indrasabha-1932 had 71(or 69) songs.Similarly, films from that era had anything between 10-50 songs each.

In the Calcutta centre, film music had a distinct influence of Robindra Sangeet,In the Lahore films,it was Punjabi and folk tunes whereas in the western Bombay centre music was influenced by Marathi stage, Gujarati Dramas and Parsi Theatre. Out of this, Marathi stage music had a pronounced effect on films as many classical Drama artists joined Film industry.As such this music was well developed and its acceptability was taken for granted.

When more films and songs were made in Bombay,there was a need for more singers.The composers were constantly on the lookout for fresh singers.
Prabhat Film Company shifted from Kolhapur to Poona,but there were many connections still left in Kolhapur area.When Prabhat started making the film ” SANT SAKHU ” in 1941,the Music Director Keshav Rao Bhole needed new singers.His assistant that time was a young man from Kolhapur area,named VASANT DESAI. He was entrusted the task of getting new singers. Such Talent Hunters were in Calcutta and Lahore also.

There is a book “The Desai Trio and the movie industry in India” by shri Nilu Gavankar. He describes this episode thus-

Vasant Desai had lot of connections in Kolhapur and Konkan.He had learnt about 2 Desai Sisters of Kolhapur who were very good singers,but he did not know them.He went to Kolhapur and met Mrs.Susheelabai Gavankar,the author’s wife and his family friend.He inquired if she knew these girls.She said, “Yes.Their mother Sharadini Desai is my friend.” They both went to Desai house. Vasant Desai was introduced.There were 2 sisters VINODINI AND PRAMODINI. Vinodini was about 15 yr.old. Vasant Desai proposed that Vinodini sings for a Hindi film. There was a flat refusal as ” girls from good homes do not sing in films”. After a great convincing and a promise of personal protection, it was agreed.

Accordingly, VINODINI sang for her first Hindi film Sant Sakhu in 1941. Later she was given many opportunities to sing in Marathi films, Bhavgeets etc.In 2 years’ time Vinodini got married to Music Director PANDURANG DIKSHIT and became Vinodini Dikshit. She was actually more into classical singing and devoted time in that, so she sang only 15 songs in Hindi films like Sant Sakhu-41, Gwalan -46, Lakhon mein ek-47, Poojya Gandhi ji-48, Sati Narmada-50 and Bhagwan Shrikrishna-50. She gave stage shows for classical singing and was actively involved in Kalyan Gayan Vidyalaya near Bombay.

Her younger sister Pramodini followed suit and started singing in Hindi films, starting with Khush Raho-49. She sang in more films than her sister, 27 songs in 13 films. Her other films include Raaz-49, Dilruba-50 Shokhiyan-51, Kashmir-51, Nand Kishore-51, Sazaa-51 Char chand-53, Fariyadi-53, One two Three-53, Gunah-53, Naulakha Haar-53 and Pehli Tarikh-54 . Later she got married to Ashok Patkar and settled in Bombay as a Housewife.

Today’s song is sung by Promodini Desai and Balbir. There were 9 songs in the film and 6 of them were sung by her. 3 solos and 3 duets. There were also 2 solos of Balbir in it. Except for today’s song, I could not get any other song from this film. So let us enjoy this rare song. With this song film Khush Raho -49 makes its debut in the Blog.

“Roshni”(1949) was directed by Ramanlal Desai for Standard Pictures Corporation, Bombay. The movie had Rehana, Nihal, Mumtaz Ali, Sophia, Benjamin, Pran, Harun, Chaand Burque, Sita Bose, V H Desai, Kesri, Shyam lal, Ramlal, Kamal Krishn, Gulnar, Indira, Shyama, zarina, Ishrat etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Five songs from the movie have been covered in the past. Here is the fifth song from “Roshni”(1949) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lalita Deulkar and chorus. P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

The song is a cute and interesting song where a desi lady wonders about the lifestyle of western people and dreams of copying them. 🙂 Her observation and conclusion about them is quite hilarious. She observes that these western people walk around with a “phaasi ka phanda” around their necks. 🙂 To her, a “mem” walks around holding a “chhatri” in her hard and she fantasises about doing the same, with her “beau” who would be suitably “westernised” as well, wearing a long hat. 🙂

Watching the video of the song would have been fun, but unfortunately the video is not available. Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

do hi lafzon ka thha ye afsaana
jo sunaa kar khaamosh ho baitthaa aa

And thus he sang in 1949, with no conception that his voice and words are going to resonate around the globe into the 21st century or the next millennia. If he had known how famous and well known one day he was destined to be, I wonder how much more conscious and eager to reach the heights a performer of his class would have been. Or if he could have excelled himself in what way. As it is, he was in a class of his own. The thing about this whole saga called Mohammed Rafi ‘s songs, is that there is/was simply no competition.

Here was me, literally stumbling in front of the street where he lived the last part of his life. It happened this saturday, I was visiting a fashion house on Turner Road, Bandra(W), and right there on the intersection there was this blue coloured sign board indicating the direction of Mohammed Rafi Marg.

Normally western suburbs are not my choice of places to visit. Having lived all my life in Mumbai, I have also had my fair share of queries like ” Have you seen Shah Rukh Khan’s house ?” or some such things mainly from those who have never visited Mumbai. Long ago some Bollywood savvy driver had driven us around the Bandra area showing us the Bunglows and houses of Dilip Kumar, Meena Kumari etc. with some visiting relatives while we all were on a sight seeing trip.

This time I was with my sister, mother and cousins doing some sort of research in current trends and fashions. Others call this same activity as window shopping 🙂 . I was gobsmacked to unexpectedly find that I can see Rafi Mansion. I told the elderly chacha from who driving the car, who is actually a Kishore and Rajesh Khanna fan, to just go and see if he can find Rafi Sahab’s home in the street, by the time we could finish the job in hand. Afterwards I asked chacha if he found the house. He replied that he couldnt find it. Having seen the road sign I was not about to give up. I said “Chalo dekhte hain kasie nahin milta” .

I knew this has to be a small street and Rafi Mansion shouldnt be so difficult to find. And Lo and Behold, there it was the gate marked “Rafi Mansion” on one side and “Bait-ur-Rafi” on the other side. The whole area, I realised must have changed over the decades. Of course the house that Rafi Sahab lived is no longer there and in its place is a building containing flats. A passerby told us, that Rafi Sahab’s daughter stays in the building but currently she is abroad.

Fortunately, I wasnt too overwhelmed and remembered that I can take photos of the place as a memory of the moment. I did take the photos of the gate and the Memorial Plaque marking the street “Padmashree Mohammed Rafi Marg”.

I have photographs to prove it, that I did visit the place and not making this story up just to write something in this post 🙂 🙂 . Photos are attached to accompany the post. Someone sure is taking care of both the plaque’s (On both corners of the road) and the gate with its silver paint and glaze.


As we came away from there, we all were discussing inane things. I could’nt even ponder over what all info I have imbibed in all these years about Rafi Sahab’s house. I only realised today that, this was a momentous occassion and could be recorded here on this blog honouring the great nourishing and enriching value addition i.e. Rafi Sahab’s legacy, is to Hindi film music.

The moment here is the 38th death anniversary, to be commemorated. A beautiful solo song that I found on youtube some months ago, with two versions, is worthy of the event. Its so touchingly rendered in the typical Rafi tones of the 40’s, that I longed to do this post. When I saw a post of a song from Shohrat (1949) a while back, I thought this song also will be posted soon. But than luckily it has been left alone, may be due to the fact that it deos not appear in the Geet Kosh.

Whether this song was recorded for the film “Shohrat”(1949) or otherwise, the fact remains that this is a authentic Rafi rendition. Both the versions have the word”Tanvir” featuring in a sher, as a poets takhallus maybe. As per the information given with the link on youtube, it is from Shohrat(1949) composed by Aziz Hindi. The poet, as per the uploader is Tanvir Naqvi.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 18
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘द’ – दिल्ली वाले साब गजब कर डाला रे ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

खुदा भी आसमान से जब ज़मीं पर देखता होगा॰ ॰ ॰

तेरी आवाज़ को किसने बनाया, सोचता होगा॰ ॰ ॰

The voice, that defined a new benchmark for divinity; no wonder if God Himself would be wondering, how such a human voice got created. . .

– – – –

Presenting the next song in this series.

This one turns out to be a fun exchange between a lady and a gentleman, who most likely are a husband-wife pair. From the lyrics, one can surmise that the gentleman works with the police force and has recently been promoted to be a ‘thaanedar’, or in other words – the inspector who heads a police station. In today’s parlance, this would be equivalent of an SHO – Station House Officer.

So the lady is expressing wonder at the action of some higher up officer – ‘Dilli Waale Saahb’ to make her husband an inspector. She seems not being able to believe it – ‘gajab kar daala re’. And then the rest of the song follows, with some fun lyrics as the two exchange some humorous comments. Listen to the lyrics, and the enjoy the fun.

The song is from the film ‘Bhikhaari’ from 1949. Now a very interesting thing noted in Geet Kosh. This film seems to be the same as the 1948 film ‘Satyanarayan’. As we review the information about these two films, all the demographics, as in production banner, director, music director, lyricists and actors, all are exactly the same. And further, the list of songs is almost identical. The nine songs are listed with exactly the same mukhda. The film ‘Satyanarayan’ has one extra item, as in instrumental music recording. Interesting thing is that the serial nos. of the gramophone records are different. This indicates that the songs were released twice on two different sets of gramophone records, under the respective names of two films.

The film is produced under the banner of Bhagwan Pictures, Bombay. Two names are listed as directors – Kumar Sahu and R Vishnuram. The nine songs are penned by four lyricists – Pt Indra, Madhukar (a name that is likely the same as Madhukar Rajasthani), Sewak and Surjeet (again, a name that is likely the same as Surjeet Sethi). Music is composed by Hansraj Behl. List of actors includes Ranjeet Kumari, Roop Kumari, Jawahar Kaul, Balakram, Sewak, B Gill, SP Mahindra, Chanchal Kumari, Leela Gupte, and Laxmi Chand.

The singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi Sb and Binapani Mukherji. Enjoy this fun song – another addition to the list of memorable duets of Rafi Sb.

“Baanoo”(1949) was directed by C M Amla for Marina Pictures, Bombay. This obscure “social” movie had Maya devi, Amar, Sheriff, Leela Kumari, Basu, Vaskar, Gulzar, Gulzar (junior), Anil, Suren Kumar, Mirza Sheriff, Agha, Shanti Madhok etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Baanoo”(1949) to appear in the blog. Singers of this movie are not mentioned in HFGK. But listening to this song leaves no doubt in mind that this song is sung by Rafi.

There were two lyricists in the movie viz Kamil Rashid and Nizami but distribution of songs among the two is not known.

Music is composed by Pram Prasad, aka Ram Prasah Sharma, who was the father of music directors Pyarelal and Ganesh.

I may have erred at a few places in noting down the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Lo rukh badal raha hai..purdard ye nazaara (Baanoo)(1949) Singer-Rafi, MD-Ram Prasad

Lyrics

lo rukh badal raha hai ae
phir zindagi ka dhaara
lo kar chali hai bewa aa
allaah ka sahaara
purdard ye nazaara

ae do jahaan ke waali ee
de de zara sahaara
haule haule jhuk jhuk
tere saamne pukaara
dikhla de ab kinaara aa aa aa
purdard ye nazaara

barbaad raaste par r
phir zindagi gawaah hain
hansti hai naamuraadi,
ghar hai na aasra hai
gardish mein hai sitaara
purdard ye nazaara

manzil hain door phir bhi ee ee
ummeed chal rahi hai
majboor hai jawaani ee ee
kaanton mein pal rahi hai
aahon pe hai guzaara
purdard ye nazaara

kya dekhti hain aankhen aen
ghar hai na ab wo dar hai ae
khela jahaan ladakpan
ab wo jagah khandhar hai
dekhe koi khudaara aa aa aa aa
purdard ye nazaara

kab tak yoon hi phiregi ee
taqdeer ki sataayi
bewa ki kul kamaayi ee
le de ke ek bhaai
dil ka wahi sahaara aa aa aa
purdard ye nazaara

“Nisbat”(1949) was directed by S Shamsuddin for Hindustan Art Productions, Bombay. This social movie had Yakoob, Munawwar Sultana, Mirza Musharraf, S Mazhar, Baby Zubeida, H Prakash, Sofia, Jillo etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it that were penned by three lyricists.

Four song from the movie have bee covered in the blog in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Nisbat”(1949) to appear in the blog. According to HFGK, this song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Govindram.

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

The voice of the singer sounds different from Shamshad Begam to me. I request our knowledgeable readers to offer their remarks on this observation.


Khaate hain thokaren kismat ke maare haaye(Nisbat)(1949) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

khaate hain thokaren
haaye
khaate hain thokaren

khwaab sa kuchh aankhon mein basaaye
khwaab sa kuchh aankhon mein basaaye
baithhe hain ham seene se lagaaye
baithhe hain ham seene se lagaaye
jhoothhi ummeeden haaye jhoothhe sahaare
jhoothhi ummeeden haaye jhoothhe sahaare
kaise katenge haaye

gham ka falak hai
dukh ki zameen hai
gham ka falak hai
dukh ki zameen hai
apna paraaya koi nahin hai
badlin hawaayen haaye
roothhe nazaare
badlin hawaayen haaye
roothhe nazaare
kaise katenge haaye
ab din hamaare

khaate hain thokaren
kismat ke maare haaye
khaate hain thokaren
kismat ke maare haaye
kaise katenge
kaise katenge
ab din hamaare
khaate hain thokaren

“Kaneez”(1949) was directed by Krishn Kumar for Caravan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shyam, Munawwar Sultana, Urmila, Kuldeep, Cuckoo, Tiwari, Ramesh Sinha, Shyama etc in it.

There were twelve songs in the movie. Ten of these songs have been discussed in the past.

According to HFGK, the movie had two music directors viz Ghulam Haider and Hansraj Bahl. Hansraj Bahl is credited with two songs and Ghulam Haider with seven songs. Credits are not given for the remaining three songs.

Here is the eleventh song from “Kaneez”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Lyricist as well as the music director of this song is not known. Uploader of this song (our own Mr Sadanand Kamath) feels that Ghulam Haider is the composer of this song and that thiis song may have been picturised on Cuckoo. I find myself agreeing with these guesses. So I have considered Ghulam Haider as the music director of this song.


Some-Lo jaam mohabbat ka pi lo (Kaneez)(1949) Singer-Shamshad Begam, MD-Ghulam Haider

Lyrics

lo jaam mohabbat ka pee lo
lo jaam mohabbat ka pee lo
more rasiya

dekho jee wo dekho baadal aaye
dekho jee wo dekho baadal aaye
masti ke paimaane bhar bhar laaye
masti ke paimaane bhar bhar laaye
o o o
jhoom uthhi hai
jhoom uthhi bharpoor jawaani
haay jiya jaaye
o o o o
jhoom uthi bharpoor jawaani
haay jiya jaaye
do ghoont jawaani ke pee lo
o dghoont jawaani ke pee lo
lo jaam mohabbat ka pee lo

o o o o
sheeshe ki chilman mein mast jawaani
sheeshe ki chilman mein mast jawaani
jisko pee kar duniya ho deewaani
jisko pee kar duniya ho deewaani
o o o o
aag bhari hai
aag bhari hai boond boond mein
kaun kahe ye paani
o o o o
aag bhari hai boond boond mein
kaun kahe ye paani
lo haath badhaa kar tum bhi lo
lo haath badhaa kar tum bhi lo
lo jaam mohabbat ka pee lo

jeene ke ye din hain baalam thhode
jeene ke ye din hain baalam thhode
aao khenchen nain gulaabi dore
aao khenchen nain gulaabi dore
o o o o

mere dil ke zakhmon ko see lo
mere dil ke zakhmon ko see lo
lo jaam mohabbat ka pee lo
lo jaam mohabbat ka pee lo
