Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

सच्ची, बहुत दिन हो गए बंबई गए। चलिए, फिर एक बार चलते हैं, मायानगरी में, एक बहुत ही अनूठे और अनसुने गीत के साथ।

Really, many days now since the last visit to Bombay. So I take you there once again today, along with a very rare, almost unheard and a very out of the ordinary song.

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s selection is in the voice of Geeta Dutt.  Coming to think of it, it is just these two voices that have the capacity and the capability to make a foot tapper song – Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt. I cannot think of any other female singer who can manage songs of the type we are discussing in this series.  There could be exceptions but I cannot readily recall any right away.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The hoof sounds of the returning horses sounded tired and beaten. It was hot and dusty. The sun beat down mercilessly on the sweaty gang members. The lonely tree provided some respite from the blazing heat. Lounging in his hammock tied to it, Mastermind lazily flicked the orangutan walking on his bare arm. The face of Kaalia appeared around the bend in the rocks.

LOST AND FOUND-GEMS FROM UNRELEASED FILMS…..Song No. 3
—————————————————————

Writing on old film songs and that too on unreleased film songs is a very hard job. Firstly, hardly any information is available on Internet or in books. Secondly, controversies crop up on the statements made in the write up. India being notoriously hopeless as far as recording history of films, music or songs is concerned, it is extremely difficult to arrive at a definite and undisputable conclusion. Most artistes of those times are beyond our reach and if anyone is still alive, he may not remember the facts properly due to old age. In my work in this field, I have found that old age artistes either don’t remember or believe firmly in wrong/desired events and timings making a mess of the whole information.

Remembering Talat Mehmood (24 february 1924- 9 may 1998) on the anniversary of his birth today(24 february 2013).

The soft velvety voice that has lent itself to a wonderful array of musical creations, and made an indelible mark in the annals of Hindi film and non-film music. Whether the song is of happiness or it is of sadness, the first thing that comes to mind on hearing Talat Sb’s voice begin to sing, is a feeling of utmost comfort. A feeling that releases all other compulsions in the mind, and the mind wants to sit back and relax and just listen to this soft sound serenading the matters of heart.

I am aware of the film ‘Siskiyaan’ which was released in 2005 but did not know that a film with the same name was made some time in early 50s until I stumbled upon a beautiful song ‘tum bhi wohi ho main bhi wohi hoon’ on YT a few days back. I liked the song so much that I at once sat down to decipher the lyrics for posting on the blog. But on a second thought, I got a doubt about the singer of this song which the YT uploader has credited to Kishori Amonkar. As far as I know from the various sources of the websites, Kishori Amonkar’s first Hindi film song as a playback singer was “geet gaayaa pathharon ne” in 1964. Mogubai Kurdikar did not like her daughter to venture into playback singing career. As a result, Kishori Amonkar did not sing for any films until Drishti (1990) for which she was also the music director.

‘Hum hain raahi pyaar ke’ – the phrase reminds me of an iconic song “ham hain raah pyaar ke ham se kuchh naa boliye” from the film NAU DO GYAARAH (1957) and the Amir Khan-Juhi Chawala starrer film HUM HAIN RAAHI PYAAR KE (1993). I was not aware of the fact that there was one more film by the same name until I came across an audio clip of a beautiful song from that film.
