Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Bambai ki Billi aka Wild Cat-1960.

This was a Stunt film, produced by Aspy Irani for his own banner – Super Pictures, Bombay. The film was directed by Zahoor Ahmed. The music was by Khayyam. He was assisted by Bipin and Mehboob. This Bipin was a part of Bipin-Babul duo, who gave music to 12 films together as a team. After leaving Khayyam, Bipin assisted Madan Mohan, where Babul was already an assistant. They joined hands and made a pair of Composers as Bipin-Babul.

Film Bambai ki Billi was an interesting film.This was actually the 3rd film with this title. The history of this film is very amusing..The first film was ‘ The Wild Cat of Bombay aka Bambai ki Billi’ – a Silent film made by Imperial films co. in 1927. Their famous actress-heroine Sulochana (Ruby Meyers) was the film’s Heroine and her Hero was one Jamshed. This film was directed by a novice Mohan Bhavnani, who became a big name in later years.

After Talkie films started, Imperial began Talkie remakes of their famous and popular Silent films and in 1936, Imperial made Bambai ki Billi aka Wild Cat of Bombay. The heroine was the same-Sulochana, but this time the Hero was different- Dinshaw Billimorea. Her earlier film Hero Jamshed was also in this film, but did a side supporting role. This time the film was directed by a veteran Nandlal Jaswantlal.(He became a famous director with films like Nagin and Anarkali in the 50s.). Nandlal had already done a Talkie remake of Indira, BA-a popular silent film as Imperial’s Indira MA. This was with Sulochana and D.Billimoria. Bambai ki Billi-36 was a social film,in which Sulochana had done 8 different roles. The roles were Policeman,Gardener, Gambler, Beggar, Hyderabadi gentleman, Banana Seller, a street urchin and an European Blonde girl. By the way, Sulochana is the only actress in Hindi film world, who acted in 4 remake films having same titles and doing the same roles in all films-silent and Talkie. Her films were Madhuri, Indira MA, Bambai ki Billi and Anarkali.

Besides the interesting history of this film title, the film also boasts of a Director, who was the only person in Hindi film industry who disappeared mysteriously – for ever. The name is Aspy Irani. Film was directed by Aspi Irani,who was basically famous for stunt and C grade films. Aspy Irani was an important director from the early films. His full name was ASPANDIAR HORMUSJI IRANI. He was born in the Parsi colony, Panch Gardens in Dadar, Bombay on 8-10-1911. He started work in the film industry after he completed his secondary schooling and as all Parsis are, due to his hard work, he soon attained a top rank in the Industry. He started directing films from 1936,the early Talkie stage, when the influence of Parsi Theatre, fantasies and dramas on folklore was the staple of stunt films. All such films had a basic structure and with a little changes here and there new films hit the screens.

There was a fixed audience for such films, but as the time went by, slowly the taste of the audience changed. However Aspi Irani continued with his style till the end. He did direct few social films also but the handling of social films had a clear stamp of Aspi’s direction.

He must have directed about 50-55 films till the early 80s. Some of his films were, Naya paisa, qaidi no.911,Barood,Shabnam,Badal etc. He was married to actress Husn Bano ( daughter of actress Shareefa).

On a fine morning on 23rd November 1986,Aspi left his home in the morning for work and never ever returned. No one knows what happened to him. Since then there was no trace of this man and officially he was declared ‘missing since 23-11-1986′. What an end to a legend !

The film cast was Kumkum, Sudhir, Mukri, Nazima, TunTun, Chanda Bai, Nazir Kashmiri, Ashalata etc. etc. The Hero of the film was Sudhir – who died about 7 years ago. He was a small time villain in many big films like Deewar etc. This was his First film as a hero.

Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria (13-4-1931 to 12 May 2014) aka Sudhir was a Bollywood film actor. He was best known for his role in the film Satte Pe Satta with Amitabh Bachchan. He acted in 226 films in a career spanning from 1962 to 2009. He was one of Bollywood’s best known villains from the 1970s through the 1990s.

His first film was Taxi Driver-1954. One gets to see his name appear first time as a male lead in the 1960 Sheikh Mukhtar film ‘Baarood’. And then again in the same year, as the male lead in the film ‘Bambai Ki Billi’. Both films have Kumkum paired opposite to him. In 1961 came the somewhat more appreciated ‘Umar Qaid’, again a Sheikh Mukhtar film, in which Sudhir is paired opposite to a very young Nazima.

In an effort to break into the next level of films, maybe, Sudhir started to work in side roles. He acted in prem patra starring sadhna and shashi kapoor 1962 as Subhash.He appeared in Apna Ghar Apni Kahani (Pyas) opposite Mumtaz in 1968, singing “Jigar me dard kaisa ishko ulfat to nhi kahate” and ‘main ye sochkar uske dar se utha tha’ (Hakeekat), ‘mujhe raat din ye khayal hai’ and ‘mere dil pe andheri sa chhan laga’ from Ek Phool Ek Bhool’.

He often played the second-in-command sidekick to villains Ajit, Prem Nath and Pran, a torturous police inspector, or a sleazy man. He was most known for his shrill voice, long moustache and sideburns. He starred in at least a dozen Amitabh Bachchan movies, such as Deewaar, Kaalia, Majboor, Sharaabi, Satte Pe Satta, Dostana, Shaan and Lal Baadshah.

The 1969 film ‘Mahal’ brought Sudhir in touch with Dev Anand, and thence started an association that would last a lifetime. Starting with ‘Gambler’(1971), Sudhir has appeared in almost every Dev Anand film, whether produced by Navketan or by any other production banner.

Other notable appearances included Feroz Khan’s 1974 hit Khote Sikkay, its sequel Kachche Heere, Dharmatma, as well as Mera Gaon Mera Desh, and roles of a handicapped thief in Dev Anand’s Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971), as police inspector (Special Appearances) in Subhash Ghai’s Meri Jung (1985) and in the Shah Rukh Khan-starring Baadshah (1999). His last film appearances were in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007) and Victoria House (2009). He was also filmmaker Milan Luthria’s paternal uncle. He died on 12 May 2014 at the age of 70. He had long been suffering from a lung infection. (based on information from wiki and an article of Sudhir ji).

The film had only 7 songs. This was a major change in the HFM. Initially, people had a fascination for film songs and hence in the early cinema of the 30’s average number of songs used to be 15 to 20 songs. In the 40s the number came down to about 10 to 12 songs and in the 50’s the number was between 6 to 8 songs. All the 7 songs of this film were written by Hasarat Jaipuri. Two songs are already covered. this will be the third song today.

All the 7 songs were good. The film was a C grade film , but the Music Director was an A grade composer. Enjoy this Geeta Dutt solo song……

“Jai Shree”(1956) was directed by Balchandra Shukla and Harsukh Bhatt for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. HFGK mentions that Rajshree Productions had apparently bought the distribution rights of this movie and had released it under the banner of Ratndeep Pictures.

The movie had Nimmi, Pradeep Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Jeewan, Jayant, Radhakishan, Roopmala, Chaman Puri, Kesri, Gadadhar Sharma, Jagdeesh Kanwal, Baby Daisy Irani, Master Vijay Kumar etc in it.

This “social” movie had eight songs in it. Two song has been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Jai Shree”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam, Lata and chorus. Gopal Singh Nepali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Only the audio of this “sahelis teasing a lady” song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (02)
————————————–————————————–

Among Geeta Dutt’s endearing songs, there are innumerable duets. Maximum no. of her duets is bound to be with Mohammed Rafi sahab, for the obvious reason that at the times she was most active, coincides with the period when various music directors were having all male songs sung by Rafi sahab. So there are films where Rafi sahab has duets with Lata, Asha and Geeta, plus solos by all of them, with a female duet also thrown it. This would be a typical late 50’s music score. Sometimes a female singer or two are changed and Shamshad Begum is there, with one solo and/or duet.

Looking for major co-singers for Geeta Dutt among the 900 songs already posted in the blog, I have found this list:

Geeta Dutt duets with major playback singers Total duets in the blog
Rafi Geeta Dutt Duets 111
Talat Mehmoood Geeta Dutt duets 21
Lata Geeta Dutt duets 17
Kishore Kumar Geeta Dutt duets 13
Geeta Dutt-Asha Bhonsle duets 25
Mukesh Geeta Dutt duets 14
Shamshad Begam-Geeta Dutt duets 9
Manna Dey Geeta Dutt duets 17
Hemant Kumar Geeta Dutt duets 19
Geeta Dutt Mahendra Kapoor duets 7
G M Durrani Geeta Dutt duets 16
C Ramchandra Geeta Dutt duets 5

While no other singer is crossing the 25 mark in the blog, the duets with Rafi sahab are at 111, so far and counting. I was surprised to find so few with Mukesh at 14 and Shamshad Begum at 9. Mukesh is at 792/932, so the possibility of few more duets with Geeta Dutt is there. Shamshad Begum is at 701/1273, so maybe a few more of these female duets are out there, waiting their turn.

I found this very nice sad melancholy duet of hers with Talat Mehmood. Considering that 386 out of 450 songs of Talat Mehmood are posted in the blog, I am glad to have found not one but two duets of these two. Even then I am optimistic that these two can reach the figure of 25. Presently they are at 21, plus the two song I have found, makes it 23. Let us see where the tally will reach finally.

This song from the film ‘Dr. Z’ is written by Akhtar Romani, and composed by Manohar Arora. These 4 songs of this film are already posted in the blog.

Song Posted on
Hello sweety seventeen 9 September 2011
Ye bheegi bheegi raat gagan par taaron ki baaraat 31 October 2018
Main hoon bhaiyya dim timkar 1 March 2019
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani 17 November 2020

Geeta Dutt has three duets to sing in this film one each with Mohammed Rafi, S. Balbir and Talat Mehmood. With this post all three duets by Geeta Dutt in this movie are posted.

Out of 900 odd songs already posted, I can guess less than 350 are duets. Going by this trend remaining 500 songs of Geeta Dutt, 80+ songs with Rafi appeared unlikely, so as to make them 200. I have counted total 147 songs of these two including group songs. So roughly less than 20 duets of Geeta Dutt-Rafi are still at large, we have to catch them sooner or later :-).

The tune of the song reminds me of this 1961 song.


Song-Dil ko laga ke bhool ki dil ka nishaan mitaa diya (Dr Z)(1959) Singers-Geeta Dutt, Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Akhtar Romani, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

dil ko laga ke bhool ki ee
dil ka nisha mita diya aa
dil ka nishaan mita diya
humne bhari bahaar mein
apna chaman jala diya aa

duniya ki har jafa sahi

duniya ki har jafa sahi
kuchh bhi magar na keh sake
humne wafa ke naam par
jo kuchh bhi thha luta diya aa
jo kuchh bhi thha luta diya(aa aa aa aa aa)

shiqwa kisi se kya karen
marzi hai ye naseeb ki
shiqwa kisi se kya karen
marzi hai ye naseeb ki
chaaha jise mita diya
chaaha jise bana diya
dil ka nishaan mita diya
(aa aa aa aa aa)

leke falak ke chaand ko
koi kare to kya kare
leke falak ke chaand ko
koi kare to kya kare
apna bhi ek chaand thha
duniya ne jo chhupa diya aa

“Ram Hanuman Yudhh” (1957) was produced by R N Mandloi and directed by S N Tripathi for Ravikala Chitra Productions. This movie had Durga Khote, Manhar Desai, Nirupa Roy, Prem Adeeb, Babu Raje, Shalini, S. N. Tripathi etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here are the details of the six songs already covered in the blog:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting Remarks
6548 Suna tu man ki been par (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 30 August 2012
7562 Aaj agar meri laaj gayee (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 26 February 2013
7567 Rakh laaj mere sindoor ki (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 27 February 2013
8603 Bhaj Ram Ram bhaj Ram (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 29 August 2013
9571 Balma o balma chanda hamaare (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 14 March 2014
12869 Door gagan par chamken sitaare (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 29 January 2017

I had discovered the seventh and final song nearly two years ago. I found this song such a special song that it deserved to be covered on a special. And that special occasion had just passed. So I decided to wait for the next year when the occasion would recur. On the next year too I missed he occasion and I decided to wait for another one year.

What is this occasion ? The occasion is the birth anniversary of Nirupa Roy ((4 January 1931 – 13 October 2004) which falls today (4 January 2020).

To most moviegoers, Nirupa Roy is associated with roles where she played mother of Amitab Bachchan. In quite a few of these movies, she ould get separated fro her family only to reunite in the last reel.

People of earlier generation would tell us that she as a Maa only towards the second half of her movie career. Prior to that she played lead roles. She often played a suffering wife in these movies but that as not all. In quite a few of her early movies she has played happy and assertive roles as well. Many of her earlier movies ere mythological or historical movies where she played a goddess or queen.

Many songs have been picturised on her during her days as a leading lady. Some of them have become iconic songs. The famous song, “o pawan veg se udne aale ghode” was lip synced by her.

The song under discussion is different ! People who have a particular image f Nirupa Roy in their mind will get a culture shock hen the watch the picturisation of this song.

It is a song here Nirupa Roy performs a dance ! Yes indeed. It is a classical dance setting where Nirupa Roy lip syncs in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. The song also has an unknon male voice that sings katthak bol.

Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

I request our knoledgeable readers to help identify the male singer as well as the actor lip syncing in the male voice.

with this song, all the seven songs of “Ram Hanuman Yudhh” (1957) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

The year that was … “2020” … we have finally come to the end of ‘Year 2020’ which has shaken the whole world and while people are trying to come to normal, the pandemics’ ‘aftershocks’ and its ‘new improved stains’ are still threatening to harm the humanity further.

Our heart goes to those who have lost their lives, those who have struggled and those who have faced difficulties in the ‘pandemic period’.
From that point of view all of us, those who will see the morning of ‘2021,’ are fortunate and should express our gratitude to the almighty, well-wishers, family members and friends, and to all them who have been caring for each other and maintaining social discipline to help the country fight back to this calamity.

Life moves on … and for people like me and like-minded music lovers this blog has been the main sources of motivation where we visited and enjoyed music to give us that much needed ‘therapeutic’ relief to forget for some time the harsh realities of life and sometime making us philosophical to think over and give a fight back or even to do an introspection.

Here I would like to highlight one comment on the blog by our regular inspiration Shri Manohar Lal Dave ji.

Suddenly it seems ONE DAY match for SHANKAR JAIKISHAN because there was no such T20 in their time. Thanks to Avinash ji, Atul ji…With SJ nearing 1K mark, the trio of lyricist-singer-composer in a song will be achieved and the BLOG will be complete in a sense in this gloomy year 2020. It will be an achievement for SJ to touch 1k mark first which they justifiably deserve like Sunil Gavaskar touching 10K mark in test.

I do not know how many of us have read this above comment and how everybody of us had interpreted it. But, for me it is a very big comment and while it also shares ‘feelings’ of many like me, it’s also the love for this blog and its magic that we are looking for our daily motivation here.

Regulars on the blog are aware of my (our) love for the railways 😊 When I came back from Kenya last year I had so many plans to visit my Mother (in Maharashtra) and other relatives and gang-outs with our team members, and thus travelling by train and relive the experience of train journey (after a long gap). However, fortunately or unfortunately it could not happen. The one ‘mini gang-out’ chance was missed on account of my health issues and after that the ‘lockdown’ happened and train services were cancelled. Secondly, then I got a job and it turned out to be the ‘shortest tenure job’ of my career. Meanwhile health issues continued and after some time they became ‘mind issues’😊

During this time where everything was looking going wrong the only thing I was doing ‘right’ (or I was able to do it correctly) was contributing to the blog with write-ups and sharing songs. It was like a retired person life or semi-retired life for me. (sabbatical is the other word – ‘Doctor’s terminology 😊)
Well, I was daily praying to the almighty to bring my life on ‘track’. (मेरी गाड़ी को पटरी पर ला दो भगवान्). And as it so happened the almighty got me engaged indirectly in the ‘maintenance’ of ‘tracks’ for all. (or मैंने उपरवाले से प्रार्थना की थी के मेरी गाड़ी को पटरी पर ला दो भगवान्, पर भगवान् मुझे काम ही ऐसा दिया के मैं सब के लिए पटरियों के मरम्मत के काम में हाथ बटाऊँ).
While the first job was around 35-40 kms from my residence the second one is 50-55 kms away from the city. Travelling for the first job I have to cross a over bridge on a railway line near the satellite station of the city and I used to see trains coming and going from a longer distance.
But now I am getting to watch the ‘tracks’ daily with those beautiful ‘track maintenance machines’ (innovation of the technology). Secondly a railway line passes around this place so I can watch trains coming and going. That reminds me of all the ‘train songs’ from our movies and specially ‘gaadi bulaa rahi hai’, which is a source of inspiration and motivation and how accurate are the words in this song …

dekho wo rail,
bachchon ka khel,
seekho sabak jawaanon
sar pe hai bojh,
seene mein aag,
lab pe duaa hai jaano
phir bhi ye ja rahi hai,
naghmein suna rahi hai
gaadi bula rahi hai,
seetee bajaa rahi hai

This has become my daily inspiration and motivation now.

Another good thing happening at the end of the year was the pre-engagement function of elder daughter 😊 (Sahir’s song always playing in the back ground in my mind).

So, the year ‘2020’ is ending on a very happy note for me on both home and work fronts. At work I have taken a new challenge but the daily inspiration and motivation – the train – with me. I get to read this tagline ‘the journey continues … with many miles to go’ daily now and it reminds me that the journey is still on … my journey continues…

And, that is why the today’s song is a ‘train song’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Talat Mehmood. It is from the 1955 movie ‘Do Dulhe’. Lyrics are by Pandit Indra and music is composed by B.S. Kalla.

On screen it is performed by a male and a female actress whom I am unable to identify, however Shyama and Sajjan are also seen in the picturisation of this song.

I had come across this song more than two years back now, when there was a discussion about train songs on the ‘Whatsapp group’ of Atulites.

Lastly, I wish to add about the other love of our group that is ‘cricket’. The year ended on a happy note for India as our team scored a win over Australia. The ‘year-ending’ also reminds me of statistics like most ‘runs’ or ‘wickets’ and ‘run and wickets double’ in a single ‘calendar’ year. If the scores in single calendar year is to be considered with reference to ‘write-ups’ and/ or ‘lyrics’ shared will be interesting to know (tnih) for the artists (as well as the contributors) 😊

Let us now enjoy this philosophical train song …

Jeewan ki ee gaadi chalti hai …

Dukh ki sandhya dhalti ee

जीवन की ई गाड़ी चलती है …

जीवन की गाड़ी चलती है
कुछ रूकती फिर चलती
जीवन की गाड़ी चलती गाड़ी चलती
ऊंची नीची राहों पे
यूं नदिया चली मचलती
गाड़ी चलती
जीवन की ई गाड़ी चलती

कोई सुखी है
कोई दुखी है
कोई गाता
कोई रोता आ
कोई गाता
कोई रोता आ आ

कमर झुकाए खडा है कोई
पांव पसारे सोता आ आ
पांव पसारे सोता आ

कभी सवेरा होता सुख का आ
आ आ आ आ
कभी सवेरा होता सुख का
दुःख की संध्या ढलती ई

आंसू और गीतों की दुनिया
रहती सदा बदलती
आंसू और गीतों की दुनिया
रहती सदा बदलती

गाड़ी चलती
जीवन की ई गाड़ी चलती

जीवन की गाड़ी चलती है
कुछ रूकती फिर चलती
जीवन की गाड़ी चलती गाड़ी चलती
जीवन की गाड़ी चलती गाड़ी चलती

Remembrance Day of N Datta on 30.12.2020
———————————————————
————————————–
Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (01)
————————————–
This is a tribute post for Datta Naik, also known as N Datta, on his 33 death anniversary. It looks as if, N Datta formed a successful team with Sahir Ludhianvi as most of his popular songs are with Sahir in the period 1957-1959. He has composed a sizeable 349 songs in 54 films, out of which 221 are already in the blog.

A few weeks aga I inadvertently ended up with a short list of Geeta Dutt’s song links, which included different genre of songs, duets, solos and female duets. They are mostly so sweet and pleasing songs. Sometimes melancholy, but still sweet.

So here is the first song in the series, combined with the remembrance day tribute post of N. Datta. It is a Mohammed Rafi- Geeta Dutt duet from the 1960 film “Rickshawala”. The lyricist here is Jan Nisar Akhtar. The song actually is a sales pitch song. The sale of the humble fruit called “Chikoo”. It is called “Sapota” too. Both singers along with chorus are enthusiastically promoting it, even offering it for free, in exchange of a heart. The celebrity names are also freely taken for encouraging people to buy the fruit. So it is a fruit vendors song, who say that :

‘chehre ka ye husn badhaaye,
Nargis khaaye,
Nimmi khaaye,
khaaye madhubala”

‘ Chikoo’ is supposed to be rich in iron, so may be, it is useful in increasing ‘chehre ka husn’. I had early experience of buying ‘chikoo’ in, believe it or not Mumbai local trains. The price was unbelievable, 5-6 chickoos for Rs. 2/- only. Those were the cheap 80’s.

Only two songs from this film are posted so far :

Song Date of posting
Neeli saadi sunahra jumper 14 February 2012
Jawaani mein to ik dil ki 18 December 2018

Title of the film is ‘Rickshawala’, but there is no riksha or tonga song here. There are these marathi words repeated in the song ‘aga saku, ghe chikoo’. It means ‘O saku, buy chikoo’. ‘Saku’ may be a slang or a nickname of sort, where girls are called ‘saku’ in a teasing way.

I could find only the audio link for the song, but it is filmed on Johnny Walker and Anita Guha. Another film with only Mohammed Rafi male singer, with Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt.


Song-Pandit ho ya lala ya Gandhi topi waala (Rickshawala) (1960) Singers-Geeta Dutt, Rafi, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-N Datta
