hullo to all in Atuldom

We have all heard “Gore gore, o baanke chhore, kabhi meri gali aaya karo, gori gori, o banke chhori, chaahe roz bulaaya karo”. Now that song from “Samadhi” was filmed on two actresses one of whom –Kuldeep Kaur- was dressed in male attire. That was in 1950. There have been numerous occasions where a lady does a stage song dressed as a man or vice versa. In such cases the man dressed as a lady sings in a female voice –as Amir Khan had done in a song in the 90s. And Kishore Kumar before him in “Dilli Ka Thug” (but that was a genre in itself) But always as a rule we seem to have females who are dressed as males sing in female voice as was the case in the song from “Naya Daur” “Reshmi salwar kurta jaali ka roop saha nahin jaaye nakhrewaali ka”; or the one from “Kismet” “Kajra Mohabbatwala akhiyon mein aisa dala”. We have had one instance (if my knowledge is right) where the male is dressed in both genders and sings in the voice of Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. I am talking of a Mehmood song (in league with the Kishore Kumar song in terms of artist’s caliber. ??). But today I discovered a song which has the actress dressed as both male and female singing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. Now this is a first encounter for me. I had seen this song ages ago, that is before my association with ASAD; which means that those days I used to listen and enjoy the songs without bothering about who sang who wrote or whose music! Etc. So, here is my heartfelt thank you to ASAD for making me aware of the songs I listen to ??

The song which I am talking of is from the 1953 romantic comedy “Ladki”. It had Vyjayantimala playing a tomboy, dancer (what else to expect from a movie with her in the cast), a sportswoman etc. She has Anjali Devi for a friend and Kishore Kumar as her male lead. There is Bharat Bhushan for Anjali Devi. This movie was made in Tamil as “Penn” and Telugu as “Sangam”. All three movies had Anjali Devi and Vyjayantimala as the constant factors with Gemini Ganeshan and N.T.Rama Rao (respectively) essaying the role played by Bharat Bhushan in Hindi. Similarly, in the south Indian versions, S. Balachander played the character that Kishore Kumar played in Hindi. The movie was directed by M.V.Raman and produced by AVM. Rajinder Kishan was the lyricist. The music director for this song was C Ramachandra.

We are having this song picturised on a seventeen year old Vyjayantimala on the occasion of her 79th birthday. Happy birthday to Vyjayantimala.

On August 2015, I had discovered a song “todke duniya ki deewar” which I had proposed to send to Atulji to celebrate the beautiful Vyjayanthimala’s birthday. The above post was written for that song. I don’t remember if I had sent it. And I am not going to search my outbox to see if I have sent or not. But before I sat to update the post when I checked ‘songs posted list’, I found that the song was posted in April 2018. But anyways my thoughts about that song remain unchanged.

I also saw that there are 15 songs in the movie out which 7 are posted that still means a few more possible Vyjayathimala dance songs are possible. As the saying goes- ‘a lot of water has flown down the river Ganges’ in the interim period. I missed an opportunity to see her live-performance in 2015 when my Peevesie said she could arrange passes, if I say-so, to a show in Bangalore where Vyjayanthimala was scheduled to perform. There are videos on YouTube that show her dance and grace even at 80 in some performance in Chennai. Hats off to the lady for her zeal and devotion to dance even at this age. May it continue in that manner for as long as she wishes.

Today’s song is a stage song sung by Lata Mangeshkar for a song written by Rajinder Krishan and composed by C. Ramchandra. We have our dear birthday girl occupying the stage as Kalidas, Tansen, a rishi who is writing the “vedas”, a Manipuri dancer, and the finale is Bharatnatyam (how could she miss out performing this). In fact the last three minutes of the song is devoted to her dance and it is a feast for the eyes, much like the last part of the “Jewel Thief” dance.

Happy Birthday to Vyjayanthimalaji.

Ed note-This song is followed seamlessly by a Tarana song which deserves to be treated as a separate song and it has been covered as such in the past.

“Guru Ghantaal”(1956) was produced by R N Sharma and N K Kaushik and directed by S M Yusuf for V K pictures Bombay. The movie had Sheila Ramani, Motilal, Usha Kiran, Agha, Sundar, Mirza Musharraf, Paro, Sheikh, Kesri, Vijaybala, Ravikant, Jagdev etc in it.

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

Here is the sixth song from “Guru Ghantaal”(1956) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Khawar Zamaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Lachchiram.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.
This is a superb “nok jhonk” duet which deserves to be better known among music lovers.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 41
——————————————————————————————

1st August of 2009, ten years ago. Five songs had been posted that day. As many as 4 movies opened their accounts on the blog that day – the four debut movies being ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’ (1952), ‘Sabse Bada Rupaiya’ (1955), ‘Duniya Rang Rangeeli’ (1957) and ’Laakhon Mein Ek’ (1971). The fifth film – ‘Bhabhi’ from 1957 had its 5th song posted that day.

The current status of these five films is that two of them – ‘Bhaabhi’ and ‘Duniya Rang Rangeeli’ have since been yippeee’d. for the remaining 3 films, two songs are pending for each one of them. The following table gives the complete status, as of just prior to this post today. The second last column gives info about the film status as of ten years ago, and the last column gives the status, as of today.

Ruk Jaa Re Piyaa Sabse Bada Rupaiyya 1955 Deb 7 of 9
Tie Lagaa Ke Maana Janaab Ban Gaye Hero Bhaabhi 1957 5th Yippeee’d
Tum Kyaa Jaano Tumhaari Yaad Me Ham Kitna Roye Shin Shinaaki Bubbla Boo 1952 Deb 5 of 7
Sainyaa Kyon Aaye Mujhe Angdaayi Duniya Rang Rangeeli 1957 Deb Yippeee’d
Jogi O Jogi Arre Pyaar Me Kyaa Hogaa Laakhon Mein Ek 1971 Deb 3 of 5

Getting on to Ten-Year Challenge, I looked up the pending songs from the three films that are still awaiting yippeee status, and I have picked this song from the film ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’ of 1952.

This film is produced and directed by PL Santoshi, under his home banner of Santoshi Productions. The main cast of actors is listed as Rehana, Ranjan, Sadhana Bose, Veera, Baby Tabassum, Radha Kishan, Mumtaz Ali, Tiwari, Samson, Indu Pal, Shama Gulnar, Prabhu, Sarosh, Bingu, Goldstein, Mehmood, Senoor (parrot), Titi (cat).

The film has 7 songs which are penned by PL Santoshi and the music is composed by C Ramchandra. In the earlier posts, our dear Arun ji has dealt with the theme of the picture, its main artists and the issue of the film being banned by the govt, inspite of getting a ‘U’ certificate from the Censors. Interested readers may refer to the detailed posts by Arun ji, for the following songs – “Arey Baba. . Ye Hansi Baba. . Ye Khushi Baba. .” and, “Kuchh Chuhalen Hon Kuchh Charche Hon”.

Interesting to note that 1998, a TV serial with title ‘Cincinnati Bublaa Boo’ was telecast by Star Plus, over a period of 25 weeks – yes, ‘Shin Shinaaki’ and ‘Cincinnat’ sound very suspiciously close to each other. Cincinnati is a city in the US, and Shin Shinaaki is the name of the female lead in this fantasy story.

The song is crafted like a bhajan, and has very very philosophical flavor. Actually, the theme of this song is surprisingly quite profound – telling about a thief who lives inside, and does not allow the individual person to light the lamp of devotion. Tied with the bonds of karma, the person is not able to resist as this thief plunders the treasures of good will and bhakti, and keeps the self entangled in the web of this world. This thief is ‘maaya’, the illusory misconceptions and wrong understanding of this world, which hides the truth about this world, the self and the devotional relationship to the Almighty.

The verses of this song have a deep meaning, and are very well crafted. The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar. A song that needs some attention as one listens to it.

With this song, the film ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’moves one step closer to Yippeee status. Now only one more song of this film remains to be posted here.

“Murliwaala”(1951) was directed by Vasant Painter for Madhuvani Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Vijaylaxmi, Shashi Kapoor (sr), Durga Khote, Gulaab, Mahipal, Parshuram, Krishna Kumari, Niranjan Sharma, Vasant rao Pahalwan, Ramesh Sinha etc in it.

There were eight songs in this movie. One song has been covered in the past.

Today (29 july 2019) is the 17th remembrance anniversary of Sudhir Phadke (25 July 1919-29 july 2002). as a tribute to him, here is the second song from “Murliwaala”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this song. Sudhir Phadke is the music director.

The mukhda of this song is similar to that of <a href="“>another Lata song from “Bahut Din Huye”(1959).

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


Song-Chanda chamka neel gagan mein (Murliwaala)(1951) singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

Today’s song is from film Nakhre-51. It is sung by Devendra Mohan, Shamshad Begum and chorus. This is a foot tapping song, reminding of a Vinod or O P Nayyar song.The tune of this song resembles a more well known song of later period,but I am unable to identify it. This is a second successive song I am discussing, after song from “Hawai Khatola”-46 which also had a similar tune to some other song.

I have come across umpteen number of songs from Hindi films which have similar tunes-in part or the whole song. I am not talking of Parody songs, because Parody songs obviously use a popular tune to make fun of it,with different but funny lyrics. Here the intention is to make a comedy song.

I am talking of those ‘inspired ‘ songs, which are composed intentionally and can be called a copy song. I remember I had written an article ” Ek dil do jaane- Ek tune do gaane “, in March 2013 on a friend’s Blog called Harveypam’s blog. In that article,I had given 20 songs as examples in which tunes were copied from other Hindi songs. Our Raja ji, Ava Suri ji and our regular commentator Partha Chanda ji were regular readers and had put their comments on my article that time. Other readers had put examples of another 50-60 songs which had similar tunes.

This phenomenon of copying can be found in Hindi films since Talkie films started.Initially,the whole song used to be repeated in another film,by other composers. Later on they settled on copying only the tunes,perhaps !

After 1950 onwards, copying a tune became a frequent practice. SD Burman’s song from film ‘ Naujawan’-51 ( Thandi hawaen,lahara ke aayen) was copied 6 more times in different songs in different films. ( the original song itself was ‘inspired’ by ” C’est La Vie” by Charles Boyer from film “Algiers”-1938 ). A well known case is of Madan Mohan copying the tune of Sajjad Husain’s Sangdil-51 song” Ye hawa ye raat ye chaandni”, for his song from ” Aakhri Daon”-58-” tuze kya sunaun main dilruba”. Famous Music Critic Girija Rajendran had openly proved how all songs of film ” Mera naam Joker”-70 were copies from earlier film songs. For example, the Title song “Kehta hai Joker, saara zamana” was copied from ” apni nazar se unki nazar tak” a song from film Hum Log-51.( See, I can write on Poetry side also !!!)

This is a vast subject and a whole book can be written on it. So far only Hindi songs inspired by other Hindi songs has been discussed. If you see songs from Bangla and other languages, then you may have to write 3 books ! Does it mean that there is no originality in Hindi film songs ? No, there ARE original tunes and songs in Hindi films. To conclude this topic,I quote a few lines from the interview of Music Director Nashad, published in Film Fare of 5th August 1955, where he has spoken about inspired songs……

” Although no one says it to my face, I know that there is a section in the film industry who decry my music as “a re-hash of familiar tunes.”
This amounts to a charge of plagiarism.

I have no defense, no apology, to offer, except to say that, if am a plagiarist, I am one unconsciously.
With only seven main notes, six ragas, thirty-six raginis and seventy-two sub-raginis, every “new” musical composition is bound to sound familiar in places.
Try to hum any popular film composition of today and then cast back your mind. Make a careful search for a parallel and you will easily find one in some celebrated songs of yesterday….”

This sounds like an excuse to me. What is to Nashad is same to other MDs too, then how come others are not blamed for plagiarism? Let us leave it at that only.

Film Nakhre-51 was directed by Surya Kumar. Yes, he is the same famous Dance Master/ Choreographer of many hit films of 50s and 60s. Suryakumar and Krishna kumar were brothers. Both were Choreographers. The story of Dance Director brothers Krishna kumar and Surya kumar is very interesting.

Anthony (Tony) Lazarus was born in 1918 and his younger brother Robert Lazarus was born on 14-12-1924. They lost the parents and were raised in an orphanage, from where , the famous film dancer Azurie picked them and trained till they became good dancers. Tony became Krishnakumar and Robert took the name Suryakumar. Krishna Kumar started acting and doing choreography in films of late 40s and early 50s. In every film of Mehboob and Kardar, he was present. Soon he became famous. However, he also developed some enemies. Krishnakumar was murdered by his enemies on 7-7-1951. The culprits were never captured.

It is believed that it was Krishna Kumar, who taught Master Bhagwan his famous Dance steps (later copied by Amitabh Bachhan also), making his film ‘Albela’ a block buster. In one of the famous songs in Albela, you can see Krishnakumar’s photo kept on a table, as a tribute to him.

Robert aka Suryakumar started his film career as asstt. in a sound department in Saigal’s last film,’Parwana’-1947. During this period,yesteryear actress/Dancer Azurie trained him and krishnakumar in Dancing. In those days the term ‘Choreographer was not used. They were simply called ‘Dance masters’ or ‘Dance Directors’.

Actress Azurie had a German father and an Indian mother. She is considered as the pioneer in Film dancing in India. She was so famous in films,that Cuckoo modelled herself on her dancing skills and succeeded. Azurie(1907-1998) trained Suryakumar in dancing.

Suryakumar then assisted madame Simka(a disciple of Uday Shankar),in film “Awaara”-1951,when he first directed Helen who was in the chorus of Dancing girls that time. Suryakumar later directed Helen in 31 films.Their last film together was Bombay 405 Miles-1980. Suryakumar was also very friendly with dancer Edwina. He visited her London home many times, after she settled after marriage in London.

Surya Kumar himself also trained Suryanarayana, Oscar and many others. After 1970, Heroines themselves became dancing girls and the roles of Dance masters reduced considerably. Posh Choreographers came on the scene.

Surya Kumar had a penchant for acting. He would himself appear in most of his dances in films. During our college days, it was our pastime to search for him in Helen dances. Surya kumar acted in 7 films, in small roles – Singar-49, Naya Raasta-53, Shesh Naag-57, Bus Conductor-59, Aankh Michauli-62, Har Har Mahadev-74 and Shravankumar-88. Surya Kumar also directed 4 films – Kamal-49, Nakhre-51, Laadla-54 and Saazish-59.

He then worked as a Production assistant and as an editor too,before retiring. His last days were spent in poverty and he died on 19-8-1987 in Bombay.

Normally, choreographers, cinematographers, editors,arrangers,dress designers,art directors etc (artists behind the curtains) are the most neglected people and no one writes about them,so not is much known also about them. It was very difficult to gather information on Surya kumar.

Let us now listen to today’s song. If any reader can identify similar tune song from other films,kindly inform us in the comments column.

(Information for this post was collated, culled and edited from books- ‘Edwina’ by Surjit Singh ji, Flash back by Isak Mujawar, several Facebook group pages and especially ‘Dances on the footpath’ by Richard S, Minai’s cinema nritya gharana and my notes)

manzil apni door hai
kahin nikal na jaaye dum

Two signature melodies, one sweet voice,

Do Naina, Aur Ek Kahaani

Do Panchhi, Do Tinke, Kaho Le Ke Chale Hain Kahaan

And the voice – Aarti Mukherjee.

Celebrating Aarti ji’s birthday today – she turns 76 today. Greetings and best wishes to her for good health, and many more such celebrations to follow.

Aarti ji was born in Calcutta, in 1943. Along with her formal school education, her grooming in classical music also continued side by side, at the feet of teachers like Shri Chinmoy Lahiri, Shri Susheel Bannerjee and Ustad Mohammed Sageeruddin. It was a childhood dream for her to be a famous singer, and be counted in the same list as Lata Mangeshkar.

In her teen years – she was just 12 or 13, in 1955 she appeared in the ‘All India Music Talent Contest’ in Calcutta. Then couple of years down the road, in 1957, she participated in the Metro-Murphy Talent Search Contest held in Bombay. The panel of judges were the esteemed cream of music directors from Hindi cinema – Anil Biswas, Naushad, Vasant Desai and C Ramchandra. She was judged to be the winner in the female singer category. This recognition opened doors for her as a playback singer in the world of cinema. She was just fourteen years old.

Vasant Desai gave her the debut break when he invited her to sing for the 1958 film ‘Do Phool’. It is a chirpy lilting children’s song that she rendered so effectively – “Matak Matak Naachoon Re”. Oportunities started to come her way. She sang a duet with Lata ji, for the film ‘Sahaara’, also 1950 – “Atkan Matkan Dahi Chatokan”. Then on to ‘Schoolmaster’ in 1959, and ‘Angulimaal’, ‘Apna Ghar’ in 1960. The song “Dheere Dheera Dhal Re Chanda” is one of her earliest popular melodies.

In 1962, she got her first break in Bangla films, with the film ‘Kanya’. Her versatility and her sweet voice helped her to make a place for herself in the Bangla cinema, coming quickly to the level of popularity of Sandhya Mukherjee, who was the lead playback singer in that era. She has given playback to almost all the stalwart leading ladies of Bangla cinema of that time – Aparna Sen, Sharmila Tagore, Madhabi Mukherji, Debashri Roy, and Tanuja etc.  Her popularity was at its peak in 1970s.

Meanwhile, she continued to sing in Hindi films, such sweet renditions like – “Mat Jaiyo Piya Pardes Sajaniya Paiyaan Pade Re” (‘Vidyapati’, 1964), “Saara Mora Kajra Chhudaaya Tu Ne” (‘Do Dil’, 1965), “Kirnon Ki Dori Chaand Ka Palna” (‘Maya Sundari’, 1967), “Jaago Anjaani Rajdulaari” (‘Ek Surat Do Dil’. 1968), and more.

In 1975 came the popular and successful ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ – in which Ravindra Jain gave us such beautiful melodies – “Shyam Teri Bansi. . .”, “Kar Gaya Kaanha Milan Ka Waada” and “Main Wahi, Darpan Wahi”.

Aarti ji has won the Filmfare award for the best female playback singer in 1983 for the song of ‘Maasoom’ – “Do Naina. . .”. She has also won the Bengal Film Journalists Award for best playback singer in 1967, for film ‘Golpo Hoelo Satyi’ and 1976, for ‘Chhutir Phande’. For her vocal performance in ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975), she was honored with the Mian Tansen Award.

Today, I present a very interesting and a very pleasing melody from the 1959 film ‘Schoolmaster’. The film is a Hindi remake of the 1958 hit Kannada film, of the same name. The film is produced and directed by BR Panthulu, under the banner of Padmini Pictures. The star cast for this film is listed as BR Panthalu, Radha Kishan, Ulhas, MV Rajamma, Shakeela, B Saroja Devi, Kamini Kadam, Lalita Pawar, Achla Sachdev, Karan Diwan, David, Jawahar Kaul, Raja Gosavi, Puranik, Vishwa Mehra, Shivaji Ganeshan, Baby Laxmi, Kusumlata, Kumuda, Shashikala, Venkatesh, Gopi Nath, Ganesh, Vijay, Pramod, and Ramesh. The story of the film is a typical family drama of a joint family – a retired schoolmaster with three sons, and he ends up losing his house and even a respectful accommodation with his children. This theme has been replayed in many films, earlier and later.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. All the song have been written by Kavi Pradeep. The music is by Vasant Desai. Vasant Desai has used as many 10 playback singers in this film – Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Geeta Dutt, Talat Mehmood, Mahendra Kapoor, Pradeep, Lalita, Indu and Sarla. And then there is this one solo song in the voice of Aarti Mukherjee.

A lovely melody, and a very lovely rendition. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Ek Do Teen, Gin Bhai Gin  (School Master) (1959) Singer – Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics – Kavi Pradeep, MD – Vasant Desai

“Fashion”(1957) was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Kuldip Pictures production, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Mala Sinha, Chandrashekhar, Manoj Kumar, Jabeen Jaleel,Sunder, Jabeen Jalil, Jagdish Sethi, Kammo, Leela Misra etc in it.

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

Here is the sixth song from “Fashion”(1957) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Hemant Kumar and his wife Bela Mukherji. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. From the sounds of it, the song appears to be a “beggar” song to me, where the citizens of the nation are being called upon to use desi (including marrying Indians) not videshi. Craving for and using videshi items was considered “Fashion” those days, and that was almost considered an anti national act, as can be surmised from the lyrics of this song.


Song-Maati ko lajaana na (Fashion)(1957) Singers-Hemant Kumar, Bela Mukherji, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Hemant Kumar
Both

Lyrics

bade bade toofaanon ke aage

“Tipu Sultan”(1959) was produced by Bakshi Jang Bahadur and directed by Jagdeesh Gautam for Global Film Bureau, Bombay. This “historical” movie had Jairaj, Anita Guha, Suresh, Rammohan, Krishnakumari, Jagdeesh kamal, Roopmala, Uma Dutt, A Kabuli, Fazal, Bishan Khanna, Kumari, Nazar, Shamlal,Nazeer Kashmiri, Kumari Neena, Maqbool, Dhanna, Sood, Anwaribai, Jeetbala etc in it.

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

Here is the second song from “Tipu Sultan”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rahil Gorakhpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Batish.

The song is picturised as a Raj darbaar dance song of sorts, but from the “modern era” as we find some Englishmen among the audience of the dance performance.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancer who lip syncs this song.

It was on this day 11 years ago that I had opened my blogging account with wordpress in order to blog. So my association with wordpress completes 11 years today (11 july 2019). In other words, I had signed up with wordpress on 11 july 2008. I then mustered up the courage to post my first post eight days later on 19 july 2008. In other words, the 11th birthday of the blog is approaching eight days from now.

Here is this dance song to mark the occasion.


Song-Naache umang jhoome tarang…mehfil rangeen hai (Tipu Sultan)(1959) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rahil Gorakhpuri, MD-S D Batish

Lyrics

naache umang jhoome tarang
aankhon mein rang chhalke
chhedde bahaar dil ka sitaar
rag rag se pyaar chhalke
mehfil rangeen hai haan
duniya haseen hai ho
waade kar lo muhhabat ke
pal bhar mein yahaan badla ho sama ho
kaun kahaan jaane
mehfil rangeen hai haan
mehfil rangeen hai
duniya haseen hai

zulfon ke chhaaon mein ulfat ke gaaon mein
zulfon ke chhaaon mein ulfat ke gaaon mein
dam le lo ae dil waalon
dam le lo ae dil waalon
mauka ye haseen hai ae
mehfil rangeen hai haan
mehfil rangeen hai
duniya haseen hai

saanson ka kaarvaan
thahre jaane kahaan
saanson ka kaarvaan
thahre jaane kahaan
aaj tu hans le raahi
aaj tu hans le raahi
kal ka kya yakeen hai ae
mehfil rangeen hai haan
mehfil rangeen hai
duniya haseen hai

duniya ke gham mita
chaahat ka le maza
duniya ke gham mita
chaahat ka le maza
dard bhi meethha meethha
dard bhi meethha meethha
aansoo bhi namkeen hai ae
mehfil rangeen hai haan
duniya haseen hai ho
waade kar lo mohhabat ke
pal bhar mein yahaan badla ho sama ho
kaun kahaan jaane
mehfil rangeen hai haan
mehfil rangeen hai
duniya haseen hai

tum samay ki ret par chhodte chalo nishaan
dekhti tumhen zameen
dekhta hai aasmaan

These uplifiting lines are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak. The poetry composed sometimes in the early 1950s, was presented as a song in the 1953 film ‘Naya Raasta’. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is a song writer who has been confined to mythological and religious fare for most of his career. Active in the Hindi cinema since 1943, his songs can be heard in films all the way to the end of 1970s.

Remembering Saraswati Kumar Deepak today (8th July) on the anniversary of his passing away. And incidentally, yesterday (7th July) was his birth anniversary also.

He was born on 7th July 1918, at Navsthala Hasanpur in district Bulanshehar in Uttar Pradesh. His original name was Ram Gopal Sharma. Not much information is available about his early years. His education was in Hindi and Sanskrit. He did his BA from Meerut College. As a young man, he had begun writing poetry and prose.

In early forties he came to Bombay, and in 1942 he joined the production house of Fazli Brothers. His first assignment was as the writer of advertisements and promotional material in Hindi, for the films produced by Fazli Brothers. His first song appeared in the film ‘Zabaan’ of 1943 – “Dheere Se Kadam Badhaata Chal, Bigdi Taqdeer Banaata Chal”, which was composed by C Ramchandra and sung by Ishwarlal and Kaushalya. His next song – “Soti Hun Ab Chanda Mujhe Jagaa Dena”, appeared 1944, in the film ‘Badi Baat’. The song was rendered by Amirbai under the direction of Feroze Nizami. This song became very popular in its time, and the name of its writer started getting known somewhat in the industry.

In 1945, his songs appeared in ‘Piya Milan’ and ’Swarn Bhoomi’. However, 1946 became a defining year for him. Four films were released that carried songs written by him – ‘Bhakt Prahlad’, ‘Dev Kanya’, ‘Maansarovar’ and ‘Uttra Abhimanyu’. As the names of these films suggest, yes, they had an effect to have Saraswati Kumar typecast as a writer for religious and mythological films. This categorization he was never able to shake off for the rest of his career.

That is not to say that he did not write other type of songs for other genres of films. The songs “Kahin Ka Deepak Kahin Ki Baati” (‘Aag’, 1948), “Raat Gayi Phir Din Aata Hai” (‘Boot Polish’, 1953, and “Nigaahon Se Dil Mein Chale Aayiega” (‘Hameer Hath’, 1964) are a sampler that represents that wide portfolio of genres he could handle. He has written close to 350 songs for about 100 Hindi films. Besides that, he translated and dubbed the songs and the dialogues for about 25 regional language films.

Saraswati Kumar was not just a song writer. He was also a screenplay writer, a dubbing specialist and a renowned author of literature for children. Books like ‘Haathi Ghoda Paalki’ and ‘Jai Janani, Jai Bharati’ became quite popular and famous. He used to write a lot for All India Radio – plays, songs, sponsored programs etc. for two years, he anchored the program ‘Apni Kahaani, Apni Zubaani’ – sponsored by Bank of Baroda. And above all, as a journalist, he continuously contributed stories and articles for newspapers and magazines.

He passed away in 1986, just after completing his 68 year.

The film ‘Bansari Bala’ is produced by Moghabhai Deasi under the banner of Desai Productions, Bombay, and is directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of actors listed for this film is Chitra, Daljeet, Maruti, Niranjan Sharma, Krishna Kumari, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Mishra, Kamal, Meenu Mumtaz, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Susheel Kumar, Nadir Mota, Razia, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Jugnu, Shashimala, Savitri, Jagdish Kamal, Heera Sawant, Sheela Waaz, Suresh Nigam, Master Rajesh, and Al Nasir.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Six songs are written by Pandit Faani and the remaining three are by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. Music direction is by Kamal Mitra. All the three songs which are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak have been sung by Sudha Malhotra. One of these three is already showcased here on our blog – “Main To Chanda Ki Nagri Se Aayi Re”.

 Today’s lilting song is in the sweet singing voice is of Sudha Malhotra. Words are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak, and the signature melody is by Chitragupt. On screen, the song is performed by Chitra, who tells about her heart after someone came to her dreams and cast a captivating spell on her. The song is filmed in a garden. And we can see the subject of her aspirations (Daljeet) also present there, although she is not aware as she continues with the song.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by Nitin Shah.

Listen and enjoy.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 37
——————————————————————————————

This day, ten years ago – as such sections are generally titled in newspapers that carry a review of their news content from 50 or 100 or 150 years in the past. Well yes, our antecedents are more modest, and so we hark back 10 years into our collection on the blog. On 4th July, ten years ago, the films that got posted were,

 

Jauhri 1951
Dholak 1951
Chaand Mere Aaja 1960
Bank Manager 1959
Faulaad 1963
Jawaab 1970

 

Of these six films, three had made their debut on that date. The debut making films are ‘Jauhri’ (1951), ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ (1960) and ‘Jawaab’ (1970).

And then, of these six films, three have been yippeee’d so far – ‘Dholak’, ‘Bank Manager’ and ‘Faulaad’. Of the remaining six, one film is on the threshold of being announced as a yippee film. And this film is ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’. So we are posting the final song of this film, to formally announce this film as being yippeee’d today.

Reminds me, it would be an interesting analysis to know, how many of the Ten Year Challenge posts are resulting in the film being yippeee’d. Meaning that the film’s debut date and the yippee date are exactly 10 years apart.

The film ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ of 1960 has 7 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Of these, six are already showcased on our blog. We bring on board, the final song of this film today. It is interesting to note that, as per the Geet Kosh, six of the songs of this film are available on gramophone records. And the 7th, which is today’s song, is available only in the film’s soundtrack. Thankfully, the video clip of this song is available online.

The song is written by IC Kapoor. Music composition is by Chitragupt. And the singing voice is of Mohammed Rafi. On screen, this song is performed by Bharat Bhushan. The song is presented in a party, where apparently, the tone of the song does not quite jell with the mood and ambience of a get together of the rich and well to do people.

In any case, we bring on board the last and final song of this film, adding it to the list of films with all songs covered –  over a period of ten years – exactly. 🙂

 

Song – O Duniyawaalo Kaisa Tumhaara Ye Sansaar Hai (Chaand Mere Aaja) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – IC Kapoor, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

o duniya waalo..oo
oo oo oo oo
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
jhoothe ki jeet yahaan
sachche ki haar hai
jhoothe ki jeet yahaan
sachche ki haar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

bade bade bazaar saja kar
gali gali mein dhol baja kar
sona dikhla peetal bechen
gin kar paise poore letey
dil ka sauda jaan ka sauda
hota hai imaar ka sauda
khoon pasina bik jaata hai
maut aur jeena bik jaata hai
pooch raha hai tumse bolo
kaisa ye vyohaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

aansoo le lo aanhen le lo
hasrat le lo chaahen le lo
taambe ka ik tukda phenko
toote dil ki duaaen le lo
loot chuke ho duniya saar
is par bhi taqraar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

sapnon ki duniya ko chhodo
asliyat se munh na modo
kab tak jhoothi shaan rahegi
do din to ye jaan rahegi
saaz samay ka bol raha hai
raaz ke taale khol raha hai
kaath ki handiya jal ke rahegi
khota ye vyopaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

सच्चे की हार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

बड़े बड़े बाज़ार सजा कर
गली गली में ढ़ोल बजा कर
सोना दिखला पीतल बेचें
गिन कर पैसे पूरे लेते
दिल का सौदा जान का सौदा
होता है ईमान का सौदा
खून पसीना बिक जाता है
मौत और जीना बिक जाता है
पूछ रहा है तुमसे बोलो
कैसा ये व्योहार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

आँसू ले लो आहें ले लो
हसरत ले लो चाहें ले लो
तांबे का इक टुकड़ा फेंको
टूटे दिल की दुआएं ले लो
लूट चुके हो दुनिया सारी
इस पर भी तक़रार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

सपनों की दुनिया को छोड़ो
असलियत से मुंह ना मोड़ो
कब तक झूठी शान रहेगी
दो दिन तो ये जान रहेगी
साज़ समय का बोल रहा है
राज़ के ताले खोल रहा है
काठ की हँडिया जल के रहेगी
खोटा ये व्योपार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ
