ek time machine ka sawaal hai baba

I need a time machine. Ah yes, you will all also say the same; exactly, we all need a time machine. I want to go back into the previous century, and view all these movies that create so much mystery and intrigue. Every film that I am not able to find anything about, makes me want to invent a time machine, and fly back into the past and watch the films, and then come back and write a more informed article about it.

Par kya karen, science has made a lot of promises, tried to explain a lot of things, but has not been successful in communicating with the past. Oh how I wish it were possible. There are ten thousand reasons that I want this wish to be fulfilled, and majority of them are the old cinema that I just crave to be able to lay my eyes on. And this lacuna is only increasing by the day.

Here we are Yippeeing films regularly, and here I am, lost and thinking – here is a film I am writing the post for its final song to be posted. And we have absolutely no inkling what this film contained, how did the storyline progress, how did the songs fit into the screenplay, how did the actors perform on screen, etc. Most such films are financially not successful and hence they are lost without anyone wanting to take care of them.

Ah yes, these are the “lost children” of the industry, whom no one cared for. These creatures were ‘conceived’, then ‘developed’ and ‘produced’ putting together many methods, and then they were finally ‘delivered’. But for some reason these ‘children’ were not accepted by the society. Mind you, nothing illegitimate about them. Just that many people, not many enough people took a liking for them. And so the very parents who had conceived and developed and delivered them, now chose to discard them on the trash heap. And no one bothered. No one paused to consider – these are legitimate creations, they have a certain content and a certain beauty, and more importantly, each one has a story to tell. And beyond that, even more important, each such offspring knew some very beautifully crafted poems and songs, that were probably sung to either empty halls or to un-appreciative audiences. Nobody, or let me say, not enough people paid up to watch these toddlers sing. Some of them; nay most of them had some very wonderful, some very touching, some very exciting melodies to share. But they were shunned, by the very people for whom they created this music. And the worst is, even their ‘parents’ stopped caring for them. Even they shunned them, and simply let them go.

So many of these new born babes were lost, some thrown in the garbage dumps, some even put to fire by greedy men who just wanted to take the silver thread from the adornment and ornamentation stitched into the clothes of these innocent, blameless and helpless children, uncared for by their own creators, who let them out without any support, to be lost in the vagaries of a cruel world, of a cruel and greedy industry. We are searching for more information, and yes, hoping against hope to trace the visuals. And then, when such pursuits all fail, then one realizes the utility of a time machine. Oh how I wish. . .

As I write the Yippeee post for this film today, I have gone back and listened to all the five songs that came before this one. And goodness, what a lovely set of creations these songs are –

Chali Chali Matwaali Hawaa”, such delightful melodious three some shared by Lata, Usha and Sudha.

Jaadoo Bhari Ye Chaandni”, such a magical number, making you feel the moonlight in the words, materializing the ‘pyaar ka samaa’ right in front of the eyes

Qadam Qadam Pe Bahaaren Lutaataa”, such a soft and romantic setup created so beautifully by Rafi Sb and Lata ji

Kuchh Meri Nazar Madhosh Hai”, another such soft romantic contemplation by Lata ji, ‘madhosh’ and ‘mastaani’ nazar, kya kehne

and “O Goriye O Poriye O Chhoriye”, such an unbelievable foot tapping number by Manna Da and Geeta Dutt, it takes all the persuasion to confirm that it IS Chitragupt and not Jimmy or Sardool Kwatra.

On listening to these wonderful gems, one just can’t help thinking of the film itself, and the people who created these delightful melodies. Luckily, in this case, we have ‘inside help’. Our own in-house encyclopedia, dear Arun ji, has seen this movie when it was released on the big screen, and he has provided us the story outline, in one of the previously posted songs. I reproduce here, the synopsis that he has shared earlier.

MADAME XYZ (1959) was a B/C grade stunt picture, under the banner of Neo Light films, produced by Ram Kamlani and Balawant Bhatt and directed by Nanubhai Bhatt.
This film was the ultimate in extremes that a hindi film can show.To see such films, one has to suspend the use of brain and normal thinking.

Radha Kishen has 3 daughters – Asha (Shakila), Laxmi(Nalini Chonkar) and Kirti(Purnima). They are shown as super-women. They are trained in Music, Dance, Drama, Riding, Driving, Martial Arts, Swimming, Flying Aircrafts (and all other skills I forgot to mention). They are kind, lovable, rich and God knows what else ! They have 3 boy friends – Suresh, Bhagwan and Sudesh respectively who are equally qualified like them.

A terribly rich friend of Radha Kishen, Raja Biharilal, on a visit to them is murdered in their house. Radha Kishen is arrested and given 15 days to prove his innocence. Raja Biharilal’s hugh wealth is in a safe,which has 4 keys. 3 Keys are kept with people in 3 corners of India, and the 4th Master key is here.

The girls and their friends start their chase of the killer and move from Qutub Minar to Brindavan Gardens to Jagannath puri to Calcutta and Punjab. They fight the criminals on road, in rail and in aircraft, as well as on a ship.

Finally they all gather in Calcutta, where they send a remote controlled riderless motor cycle after the killer (Pran) and arrest him.

Need I further tell you what happens next ? Of course I must (why only I should suffer alone?).

The end is sweet, father is released – ba-izzat, and the 3 daughters get married to 3 (idiots, you said?) boy friends.

The End (at last !).

This movie is a Neolite films production. It was produced by Ram Kamalani, Balwant Bhatt and directed by Nanabhai Mistry. The movie had Suresh, Shakeela, David, Nalini Chonkar, Purnima, Shammi, Bhagwan, Pran, Sudesh Kumar, Nana Palsikar, Kumar, Jamal, Hari Shivdasani, Hameed, Majnu, Genius, Raja Amrohi, Brahmadutt, Fazloo, Arvind Pandya, Douglas etc in it.

This song is sung by Lata ji. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

A delightful semi classical construction. Quite a wonder that the same music director has composed this aria, the foot tapper “O Goriye, O Poriye. . .” and the soft romantic “Qadam Qadam Pe Bahaaren Lutaata”, all of them together in this film. Chitragupt at his most versatile best.

With this song, the film ‘Madam XYZ’ now joins the ranks of the films with all their songs represented on our blog.

Yippeee. . .

‘Nirmohi’, from 1952 is a film produced by Shriram Sharma, and directed by Baij Sharma for the banner of Sheetal Movies, Bombay.  The cast of actors in this social drama includes Nutan, Sajjan, Raj Mehra, Leela Misra, Chaman Puri, Neeru, Amarnath, CL Kavish, Neeru, Kanchan etc. amongst others. The eight songs in this film are shared between Uddhav Kumar, Indeevar and PN Rangeen, as far as song writing is concerned. Music is by Madan Mohan. This particular song is from the pen of Indeevar. The singing voices are those of Kavita and Lalit Mohan.

Now, both the singer names are unfamiliar. As I scan the Geet Kosh for these names, I find that the name Lalit Mohan appears only in two songs in this film, and nowhere else. In case of Kavita, her name appears in just three films, one from 1948 and two from 1952; and then nothing else. The other song from this film that has the voice of Lalit Mohan, is already posted on our blog – “Aisi Chot Jiyaa Ne Khaai”. I request our readers and friends to please add more information if available, about these singers.

No other information is available about this film. Again, a request for readers to add more information if available.

If we review the status of the artists, when this film was released, we find that most of them are in the infancy of their careers. Madan Mohan had made his debut as a music director in 1950 (‘Aankhen’). The same can be said about Nutan, her first film was ‘Hamaari Beti’ (1950). Sajjan had started his career in early 1940s, in Calcutta, doing bit roles and working as assistant to directors. Like many other artists, he also moved to Bombay in the mid 1940s. Here he gravitated towards Prithvi Theatres, and from that platform he came on to cinema screen. For him too, his first significant role, opposite to Nalini Jaiwant, was in the film ‘Muqaddar’ in 1950.

Indeevar, the songwriter appeared on the scene in 1946, when he wrote the lyrics for films like ‘Black Market’ and ‘Double Face’. As per Geet Kosh records, these are the earliest films where we find his name appearing.

As far as the availability of songs is concerned, luckily the audio version of all the eight songs is available. Seven of these are already posted on our blog. Today, I bring online the eighth and final song of this film, which probably has been sidelined because the singer names are unfamiliar. As I listened to this song while preparing this post, I am surprised, because the song and its rendition are quite delightful. It is peppy number that tells about first love. The music is engaging, and the song deserves more attention than it apparently has received.

And so, with this post, the film ‘Nirmohi’ now joins the rank of ‘Yippeee films on our blog.

Song – Ye Suhaana Samaa, Ye Umangen Jawaan (Nirmohi) (1952) Singers – Kavita, Lalit Mohan, Lyrics – Indeevar, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

ye suhaana samaa
ye umangen jawaan
ye bahaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren

gungunaane lagi hai jawaani
hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmmmmm
hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm
gungunaane lagi hai jawaani
kehti phirti hain aankhen kahaani
kehti phirti hain aankhen kahaani
raat aankhon mein kab tak guzaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
ye suhaana samaa
ye umangen jawaan
ye bahaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren

aate hain jab hwaaon ke jhonke
teri aahat samajh ke ye chaunke
teri aahat samajh ke ye chaunke
raah nis din ye naina nihaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
ye suhaana samaa
ye umangen jawaan
ye bahaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren

jo bin byaahe
mujhko likhe hai
aisi paati
kisey tu likhe hai

naam loon to umariya ghatey hai
hai wohi jo papeeha ratey hai
meri paati pathaa de tu jaldi
haath peeley hon lag jaaye haldi
loon khushi se main teri balainyyaan
jo ghar aa jaaye mora sainyyaan
jo ghar aa jaaye mora sainyyaan

ये सुहाना समां

मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें
मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें

हम्म हम्म

गुनगुनाने लगीं है जवानी
कहती फिरती हैं आँखें कहानी

रात आँखों में कब तक गुजारें
मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें
ये सुहाना समां
ये उमंगें जवां
ये बहारें
मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें
मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें

आते हैं जब हवाओं के झोंके
तेरी आहट समझ के ये चौंके
तेरी आहट समझ के ये चौंके
राह निस दिन ये नैना निहारें
मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें
ये सुहाना समां
ये उमंगें जवां

जो बिन ब्याहे

ऐसी पाती
किसे तू लिखे है

नाम लूँ तो उमरिया घटे है
है वही जो पपीहा रटे है
मेरी पाती पठा दे तू जल्दी
हाथ पीले हों लग जाये हल्दी
लूँ खुशी से मैं तेरी बलैय्यां
जो घर आ जाये मोरा सैंय्यां
जो घर आ जाये मोरा सैंय्यां

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 2
——————————————————————–

mann panchhi albela
taaron ki nagri mein jaaye

If we replace the word ‘taaron’ with the word ‘gaanon’, it would be apt for this blog. Don’t we all freely wander in this cyber world of songs, lyrics and the stories behind them, as we browse the pages on Atul-Song-A-Day.

Coming to the song itself, this is one of the three Lata gems from ‘Mad Bhare Nain’ (1955). The other two are the romantic numbers “Aa Palkon Mein Aa” and the bhajan “Mo Se Saanchi Kaho Banwaari”.

It was a few days back that I received an unusual e mail from Sudhir Ji

Requesting that you may please slow down on the posts. I am trying to pull together an upcoming anniversary, against the some artist stats. So I request that you may please limit your postings to two posts for the next 5 to 6 days. I will also try to post at least one song, or maybe two, to keep the pace at 3 to 4 posts per day.

If feasible, please send me the tags information for the songs to be posted, a day in advance. I just want to ensure that the anniversary I am targeting and the stats I am trying to reach, coincide when required.

So accordingly I slowed down to two posts per day, one post being a “debutant” movie post and another post being “YIPPEE” post. But I found that Sudhir Ji himself would not be posting the promised one or two posts for the day.

This article is written by our dear Atul ji. You must be wondering, why this change in presentation style today. Well, this post is a very, very, very special occasion, or rather a momentous occasion, for our blog and for Atul ji. It is appropriate that this introduction and announcement be made on his behalf. 

THIS  IS  ATUL  JI’s  10,000th  POST  ON  THIS  BLOG.

This is a milestone, in comparison to which all our earlier milestones and celebrations pale in significance. A single-handed dedicated effort relentlessly in progress for the past almost nine years. I am sure it will take some time for all of us, for the significance and eminence of this event to sink in.
More special posts by the members of our bandwagon are in planning, starting tomorrow. So please keep connected and be a witness to this remarkable celebration.

As regulars are aware, I am based at Izatnagar, Bareilly at present which happens to be located between Delhi and Lucknow. In fact, this place is equidistant from both these cities. This fact had been commented upon by several regulars. Our Lucknow based regular namely Mr Avadh Lal even commented that I needed to visit Lucknow and meet the Lucknow based music lovers.

It is my turn today to celebrate a ‘Yippeee’.  I am not sure if I have specifically announced a ‘Yippeee’ in any of my earlier posts. Possibly that could have been before the term ‘Yippeee’ was coined. Today we announce the completion of posting of all songs of the 1956 film ‘Makheechoos’. The important thing for me is that the music is by that unsung genius Vinod.
