Today’s song is from the film Do Raaha-1952, about which not much is known- except whatever is given in the HFGK.The film was made under the banner of ‘Progressive Pictures,Bombay’. It was directed by Bal Chhabra and was produced by his elder brother Sujit Chhabra under their own banner. The cast of the film was Nalini Jayawant, Shekhar, K N Singh, Agha, Dewan Sharara, Jagdish Sethi and many more. The 8 songs of this film were written by Prem Dhawan-6 songs and one each by Sahir Ludhianvi and Josh Malihabadi. It seems, there was one more song ” Sab paise ki hai maya” sung by Shankar Dasgupta, S D Batish and Prem Dhawan. The song was also recorded but not included in the film. The music was by Anil Biswas.

Like the film title ‘Do Raaha’, Anil Biswas was also almost at a Do Raaha point in his life. He was a disturbed person. His relations with wife Ashalata were worsening by the day. At the same time his closeness to Meena Kapoor was increasing. Out of his total 90 films in his career, 60 films were over and he was looking at the last 1/3 part of his career with a pessimistic view. After this film, he gave music to 29 more films, but his old magic seemed to be deserted him on the way somewhere. Only the films Fareb-53, Pardesi-57, Char dil char rahen-59 and Sautela Bhai-62 had songs having his faint old stamp.

Anil Biswas, the Bhishma Pitamaha of HFM, was a respected person in the industry. He started from the mid 30s and for the next 25 years or so, he created many everlasting gems in film songs. In Bombay,the Playback system was first started by him in the film Mahageet-1937. By the mid 50s his magic started waning and by 1960, he was almost gone from the industry.

Initially he did 10-11 films with Sagar, then with Mehboob for National studios and then in Bombay talkies- where his name became immortal with the film Kismet-1943.

He married Ashalata in 1936. Along with her he started variety pictures and they produced films like Laadli-49,Laajawab-50;Badi bahu-51,Hamdard-53 and Bajuband-54. ( a less known fact is-Anil da had made a Guest appearance in film Hamdard-53 as a barber. He also acted in the film Mehman-53 (produced by Ashalata),as a Pujari and a song was shot on him.In both cases he did not get any payments. As a Producer he lost heavily, because Ashalata usurped all the money. Frustrated, he gave up everything and separated from her in 1954.

To sustain life, he bought a Truck and did a business of transportation. In addition he also took the contract for a canteen in Mehboob Studios. He failed in both ventures. By now, his relations with Ashalata were soured and sweet links were established with singer Meena Kapoor-25 years younger to him, since 1948 itself. They got married with each other on 19-3-1957. The death of Brother in law and close friend Pannalal Ghosh in 1960 and younger brother Sunil in 1961 as well as his eldest son, broke his heart. He left Bombay and joined A.I.R. at Delhi on 1-3-1963, where he worked upto 27-6-1975. Later he was a consultant for Nehru University for a few years.

Like many filmi couples, Anil da’s married life was also a failure. In Bombay,he used to stay in a huge bungalow,called ” Asha-Pradeep “, on Vincent Road. From Ashalata,he got 3 sons-Pradeep, Amit and Utpal and 1 daughter-Shikha. His son Utpal formed a pair as Amar-Utpal and gave music to few films. The other son Amit established the First Digital Recording Studio in Bombay. Daughter Shikha too got married and settled.

However, hardly anything is known about his eldest son Pradeep, anywhere. Here is some information, hitherto not known much, brought specially for our readers.

Pradeep was a very bright student and always topped in school and college. He passed his entrance exam and the interview, with flying colours for entry to NDA college at Poona, to join armed forces. He excelled even in NDA training. Not only was he very popular there but sang well too. He participated in the music Festival of Khadakwasla NDA and sang 3 songs, winning all prizes. He was also an NDA Topper.

Shri Gopinath Talwalkar, an A.I.R. Programmer at Delhi, used to interview the Toppers of NDA every year. That year Pradeep was the Topper, so he was interviewed. Though the interview was in Hindi, after the recording, Pradeep asked Talwalkar, in pure Marathi, whether his interview had been good. Talwalkar was shocked. Pradeep then explained that he was Anil Biswas’s son and he had learnt Marathi from his actress mother Ashalata. Pradeep knew Hindi, Marathi, English and Gujarati languages.

After completing his NDA training, he was posted as Flight cadet at Jodhpur. He was further promoted and became Pilot Officer in 1957. During one Training flight some altitude problems occurred and his plane crashed at Begumpet Airport, Hyderabad, killing Pradeep instantly. This happened in 1961.

This was also the time of crisis for Anil da. He was struggling to survive. Films were not coming to him. Since he married Meena Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar-a fast close friend of Ashalata , had gone against him and Meena’s singing career was suppressed. He had already lost Pannalal Ghosh and Sunil-his brother, and now Pradeep’s death devastated him and he was literally forced to seek employment with Delhi A.I.R., when the opportunity came. After retirement, till his death on 31-5-2003, he spent his life in total anonymity as a recluse. So sad for a composer, who was once a fountain of enthusiasm and who was considered Mentor by leading contemporary composers like C.Ramchandra.

Here is an interesting incident about the film Girls School-1949, between C Ramchandra, Anil Biswas and Lata Mangeshkar. This film was produced by Kavi Pradeep under the banner of Lokmanya Productions, Bombay. This was a company floated by him and Amiya Chakrawarty-director of this film. To understand the complexities of Girls school, we must go back a little. In 1942, Anil Biswas was invited by Ranjit @ 1500 pm and by Bombay Talkies @ 2500 pm. As National studio was winding up, Anil Biswas wanted to make a change anyway, but due to the contract of national he could not join Bombay Talkies openly. He ,however , gave music to film Basant-42 and the name of his brother in Law, Pannalal Ghosh was used as its MD.

Finally when Anil Biswas joined Bombay Talkies, there were already 2 groups there. One was led by Devika Rani and Amiya Chakraborty and the other was led by S. Mukherjee along with Ashok kumar, Gyan Mukherjee, Pradeep etc- a total of 15 artistes. Anil Biswas was invited by Devika Rani and that too at 2500 pm, when Pradeep was getting 1500 pm. This irritated Pradeep no end and he started troubling and finding faults with Anil Biswas. However Anil Biswas gave excellent music to film Kismet and then everyone was happy as the film celebrated jubilees everywhere.

With this background, Anil Biswas joined Girls school as a MD, mainly due to Amiya who knew his calibre. Kavi Pradeep being a producer and a Lyricist started interfering with Anil Bswas’s work and criticising him at every opportunity. Anil Biswas was fed up. He had already recorded 3 songs and a solo by Lata , “tum hi kaho, mera man udas kyun na rahe” was to be recorded. Anil Biswas had taken C Ramchandra as his assistant for this film. Though C Ramchandra was already a popular and well known composer himself, still due to sheer respect for Anil Biswas, he had accepted to be his assistant here. When the tune for Lata’s solo was made, Pradeep passed caustic remarks about it being not so good. There was an altercation between Anil Biswas and Pradeep and Biswas quit then and there and went away.

Automatically, C Ramchandra had to take over as MD for the balance songs. Pradeep was very happy. Next day recording of Lata’s solo song took place under the supervision of C Ramchandra, as planned. Later when Lata came to know that Anil Biswas had left and C Ramchandra had replaced him,she was very angry and said that she would not have recorded the song had she known about AB’s exit. She objected to CR’s taking over and complained to the Artistes association too. (Remember, at that time Lata and CR’s relations had not formed yet, Lata was still with Husnlal.)

Later on in 1954, when O P Nayyar replaced Roshan for Mehbooba-54, Lata took up the issue with the MDs’ association. Anil Biswas was the chairman that time and OPN was boycotted. That time Lata quoted the film Girls school incident to prove that she is “highly Principled” !

Anyway, this was how C Ramchandra became the next MD of Girls school-49, with 4 duets of Shamshad and 1 solo for Lalita Deulkar. All the 4 duets of this pair are very interesting. However, with all this jhamelas, film Girls school-49 was a total Flop. Pradeep lost heavily and closed the production company forthwith, after just one film.

Today’s song is a very good song and I was surprised to see that it was not yet posted here. Actually, there may still be some more such Gems, waiting to be discovered. This song is sung by Anil Biswas, Meena Kapoor, Shankar Dasgupta and Shamshad. I liked this song. You too will like it.

4680 Post No. : 16360

This post is coming two days late. Talat Sb’s anniversary of passing away was two days ago (9th May). In preparation and delayed, this post remembers Talat Sb, the velvet voiced wonder who is one of the mainstays of the fond memories of the golden age of Hindi film  music – an era when melody was the queen.

A rare and opportune gathering of talented stars, singers, music makers and writers once came together at the coordinates of a place called Bombay (now Mumbai).  Fortune has a timing of its own, and blessed are those who witnessed this gathering, and also those who continue to enjoy their creations and their histrionics. An august assembly that pulled together in 1940s, it continued gathering momentum along with the fervor of the newly independent India.

But as all good things, this assembly waned and started to fade away after three decades of having held spellbound a young nation, with a full spectrum of emotional flavors. The resonance of those times still rings in the ears and flows with the wind and water of this land. The echoes still entertain, still charm and engross multiple generations of music lovers.

Introduction to Talat Sb is not necessary. But the memories are. And more importantly, it is the celebration of the memories that is essential. Celebrities and performers abound in every generation, every century. But the history remembers only them who are remembered by later generations.

Searching for a song from his earlier films, I chanced to find this one which has not yet been posted on our blog. The film is ‘Ratnadeep’ from 1952. As I check the lists, I find that the film has 8 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Of these, 5 songs are already showcased on our blog. Talat Sb has sung three songs for this film. Two are duets with Geeta Dutt, and one solo. The two duets are already present here. I bring on the solo song of Talat Sb today.

The film ‘Ratnadeep’ is a production of Chitramaya, Calcutta (now Kolkata) and is produced and directed by Debaki Kumar Bose.  The film is based on the famous novel of same name by Prabhat Kumar Mukhopadhyay (1873-1932). Prabhat Kumar was a barrister by profession and later a professor of law at University of Calcutta. He started writing while still studying at school, and his poems were published in Bangla magazines. He became famous for his short stories which looked at life using a light-hearted lens. As an author he has published more than 100 short stories and 14 novels. ‘Ratnadeep’ is the most well known of his novels.

The cast of actors of this film is listed as Anuva Gupta, Manju Dey, Molina Devi, Chhaya Devi, Tangamani, Harini, Bakul Ghosh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Pahadi Sanyal, Niteesh Mukherji, Tulsi Chakravarty, Kamal Mishra, Raj Kumar Soni, Sudheer  Chakraborty, Gokul Mukherji and Gauri Shankar.

Music for this film is composed by Robin Chatterji. Two songs of this film are traditional verses, one by Vidyapati and another by Meerabai. The remaining six songs have been penned by Pt Madhur and Pran Mahendra. However, the sharing of songs between these two lyricists is not known. So the tag for lyricist is indicated as ‘Unattributed’.

This is a true vintage Talat song – the perfect voice picked by the music director to render it. The words in the song tells about unfulfilled love, expressing aspirations and longing for things that could have been. The words are lovely, and the rendition by Talat Sb touches the strings of the heart inside.

Listen and enjoy this lesser known, lesser heard wonderful song of Talat Sb.

 

Song – Agar Dil Ke Taaron Pe Main Chhed Sakta (Ratnadeep) (1952) Singer – Talat Mehmood, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Robin Chatterjee

Lyrics

agar dil ke taaron pe
main chhed sakta
nai zindagi ka naya sa taraana
agar dil ke taaron pe

na manzil ki chaahat
mere dil mein hoti
na manzil ki chaahat
mere dil mein hoti
meri pyaas ulfat ke
naghmon mein khoti
mere naqsh e paa hi
mere naqsh e paa hi
bataate thikaana
agar dil ke taaron pe

main lehron ke haa..aathon mein
patwaar de kar
jo baste hain dil mein
unhen saath le kar
bahut door saahil se
le jaata kashti
na wo rehte wo
aur na main meri hasti
na wo rehte wo
aur na main meri hasti
magar haa..aaye
adhoora rahega apna fasaana
nai zindagi ka naya sa taraana
nai zindagi ka naya sa taraana
agar dil ke taaron pe

Hindi Script Lyrics

————————————————————
अगर दिल के तारों पे
मैं छेड़ सकता
नई ज़िंदगी का नया सा तराना
अगर दिल के तारों पे

ना मंज़िल की चाहत
मेरे दिल में होती
ना मंज़िल की चाहत
मेरे दिल में होती
मेरी प्यास उलफत के
नग़मों में खोती
मेरे नक़्श ए पा ही
मेरे नक़्श ए पा ही
बताते ठिकाना
अगर दिल के तारों पे

मैं लहरों के हा॰॰थों में
पतवार दे कर
जो बसते हैं दिल में
उन्हें साथ लेकर
बहुत दूर साहिल से
ले जाता कश्ती
ना वो रहते वो
और ना मैं मेरी हस्ती
ना वो रहते वो
और ना मैं मेरी हस्ती
मगर हा॰॰य
अधूरा रहेगा अपना फसाना
नई ज़िंदगी का नया सा तराना
नई ज़िंदगी का नया सा तराना
अगर दिल के तारों पे

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Bahu Beti-1952.

1952 was an year, when resurgent India was trying to organise itself as an Independent Nation. Jawaharlal Nehru had formed independent India’s first Government after the first General Elections. In the film industry also few milestones were reached.

The first ever international Film Festival was organised in Bombay. The fortnightly magazine FILMFARE was launched. A delegation of Indian film personalities visited Hollywood. Two colour films-Aan and Jhansi ki rani (released in 1953) were censored. Pakistan banned import of Indian films after an agitation of Pakistani Film artistes. Bimal Roy shifted his base from Calcutta to Bombay.

Besides this, Radio Ceylon played a major role in popularising Hindi Film Music almost worldwide. Radio Ceylon Hindi service started before 1950. Hamid Sayani, elder brother of Amin Sayani was involved in Radio Ceylon in early days and Binaca Geetmala started from 1952. The announcers of radio Ceylon like Kamini and Vijaya sisters, Vijay Kishore Dubey, Gopal Sharma, Shiv Kumar Saroj, Sunil Dutt, Manohar Mahajan etc were household names. So were towns like Jhumri Talaiyya, Nanded and few others. Radio clubs cropped up everywhere.

Radio Ceylon got the real boost when HFM stopped playing on A.I.R. in 1952.It is popularly believed that the then Minister for information and broadcasting, V.B.Keskar was against film music, calling it Vulgar and that it was he who banned it on A.I.R.

But it is NOT TRUE !

It is true that Keskar was a Purist and disliked Hybrid Music (i.e. HFM ),but he did not ban it. What actually had happened was that A.I.R. announced its revised policy in July 1952 which said,1) Broadcast time for Hindi film songs will be reduced and 2) Dropping the custom of announcing the name of the Film of the song.

IMPPA or The Indian motion Picture producers’ Association was enraged at this loss of free advertisement opportunity for their films and the producers, in their capacity as Copyright owners, took away the A.I.R. ‘s licences for broadcasting film songs. Thus film songs disappeared from A.I.R.,replaced by sugam sangeet and classical music.
(Ref. ‘‘ Mourning the nation: Indian cinema in the wake of the Partition” by Bhaskar Sarkar,pp 57 and .https://www.livemint.com/…/In-1952-Hindi-film-songs-were-ba… )

So, the truth is Keskar did not ban HFM, it was the producers’ association which withdrew licences to AIR, thus forcing them to stop HFM.

We had a very interesting discussion on RMIM forum on this issue, a few years back. Dr.Surjit singh ji , like a magician, produced several old documents which proved that Keskar was NOT the villain, but popularly he was held responsible by one and all.

Radio Ceylon took advantage of the situation and grew very fast starting programmes like Binaca geetmala and Lipton ke Sitare. They did yeoman service to popularise HFM in south east Asia.

Radio Ceylon’s transmitters were powerful and Boosters were installed in India. The famous Mountaineer Edmund Hillary wrote, ” Soon after Conquering Everest, we turned on our Transmitter Radio and the First thing we heard was an Overseas broadcast of Radio Ceylon Hindi service-from more than 3000 miles away ! ”

The year 1952 also saw some of the outstanding musical films and films with some other importance. Scanning the 105 Hindi films that were censored in 1952, we find that the colour film Aan was made in Hindi, English and Tamil language versions. Anand math-first Hindi film of Hemant Kumar had few eternally famous songs by Lata, Geeta and Hemant himself. Aasmaan was the first film of O P Nayyar, from whose soundtrack, Radio Ceylon picked up one of its programme music. Then there was Anhonee. Baiju Bawra-a musical film which opened the doors of A grade films for its lead pair-Meena kumari and Bharat Bhushan, languishing in B and C grade films hitherto.

Film Chamkee for which actress Ragini came all the way from Pakistan, Film Jaal another musical. Jungle ka Jawahir-last film for the yesteryear stalwart composer Madholal master, who was murdered in his flat in Shivaji park, in 1990. Film Maa- first Hindi film of Bimal Roy in his Bombay career part. Naubahar-a Roshan musical and Neelam Pari- Last film for migrator khwaja Khurshid Anwar, MD. Film Saqi,a musical and Sheesha-first film for Kumkum. Shin shinaki Boobla Boo-strange name film featured in the environs of a Far Eastern country. Film Yatrik-a Himalaya trek religious film by Pankaj Mullik, with some outstanding Bhajans and finally film Zalzala-in which Dev Ananad died on screen for the first time ( He never liked the idea,though). The only Next time he died on screen was in Guide-65.

The music of film Bahu Beti was composed by S D Batish. I have a lot of respect for S D Batish,who did a marvellous job of promoting Indian Music in the UK and USA. He is one of those rare people who left the film world, but continued serving the Music,by turning a corner in Life. Such people are few in this world. The monumental work he did for Indian Music in foreign lands is unparalleled. An important point is that he did not do this service to Music for his personal gains. For his sustenance,he had opened a Restaurant in Santa Cruz,California,which was providing him enough for a comfortable living in the USA.

After his death in 2006, an obituary-cum-short life sketch was published in California. I give below its adapted version for our readers-

” Punjabi master S.D. Batish was a pivotal figure behind the western world’s embrace of Indian music, most notably via his memorable contributions to the Beatles’ film Help! Born December 14, 1914, in Patiala, India, Shiv Dayal Batish abandoned a career in the nascent telephone industry to study devotional song, folk drama, and Indian classical music under his guru Hakim Chandan Ram Charan. In 1934, he relocated to Bombay to try his hand at acting, but roles proved scarce and he returned to Patiala two years later, renewing his focus on music. By 1936 Batish was regularly appearing on All India Radio and recording his first sessions for His Master’s Voice. The film industry nevertheless retained its allure for him, and in 1939 he returned to Bombay, working for a spell under broadcasting legend Z.A. Bokhari. After earning his first film work as an assistant musical director in 1942, Batish later graduated to full-fledged Bollywood musical director, in the years to follow working with playback singer greats including Asha Bhosle, Lata Mangeshkar, and Mohammed Rafi as well as writing now-classic songs like the smash “Manmohan Mana Men,” from the 1945 film Kaise Kahoon.

Batish also moonlighted as a playback singer on more than 40 films, among them 1944’s Daasi and 1948’s Barsaat ki Raat, before relocating to Britain in 1964. After accepting a position with the BBC Immigration Unit, Batish became a regular in British radio and television, most notably composing “Nai Zindagi Naya Jivan,” the theme song to the Beeb’s classic South Asian series Apna Hi Ghar Samajhiye (“Make Yourself at Home”). He also returned to his roots as a live musician, performing Indian folk and classical music on the vichitra veena, a long-necked fretless flute. In 1965 Batish was summoned by percussionist Keshav Sathe to record the Indian-inspired incidental music for the Beatles’ second feature film, Help! — the experience also proved the beginning of his lifelong friendship with BeatleGeorge Harrison, who later hired Batish to teach his then-wife Patti Boyd the stringed dilruba. In 1969 Batish assembled wife Shanta Devi, daughter Vijay Laxmi and sons Ashwin Kumar and Ravi Kumar to record North Indian Folk and Classical Music, which for decades remained the lone Indian release to appear on the seminal folk label Topic Records. A year later, the family emigrated to the U.S., settling in northern California and founding a restaurant, the Santa Cruz-based Krishna Café. Although the restaurant business remained Batish’s primary focus for the remainder of his life, he continued playing live and also cut the occasional LP, most notably 1980s Raga Todi, 1985’s Om Shanti Meditation on Dilruba and 1997’s The 72 Carnatic Melakhartas.

He founded “Batish Institute of Music and Fine arts” in California and wrote about 12 books on Indian Classical music,like Ragopaedia,Raga Channels,Rasik Raga lakshan Manjiri etc. He had also founded Batish Recording Co. He was associated with 102 films in Hindi and gave music to 17 films as S.D.Batish,Master Ramesh and Nirmal Kumar. Some of his songs were famous. He died at age 91 on July 29, 2006.” ( adapted from Jason Ankeny’s Bio )

In my memory,the image of S D Batish is etched as a person with a large Fur Cap. Such a type of cap was worn by Shaikh Abdulla and his son Farooq Abdulla. I saw V.Shantaram too wearing that type of cap. Later his son followed by wearing the same ( I mean similar type) Fur cap like father,as if it was a family tradition ! Of late,I have seen the famous film Historian shri Nalin ji Shah with this cap. When I had met him a few years back,he had jokingly said that this cap is his Trademark !

S D Batish was the cousin brother of Pt. Amarnath and brothers Husnlal-Bhagatram,all bore the same surname – Batish.

Out of the 8 songs of film Bahu beti-52, 4 songs are already discussed on the Blog. Today’s song, sung by Geeta Dutt and chorus will be the 5th song. It is a good song to enjoy listening…

Song-Sambhal sambhal kar chalna pagle (Insaan)(1952) Singer-S D Batish, Lyrics-Sajan Bihari, MD-B N Bali

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Sambhal sambhal kar
Sambhal sambhal kar chalna pagle ae
Jag hai andheri raa aa aat
Jag hai andheri raat
sambhal sambhal kar

Jeewan mein insaan ke dukh sukh a a a
Jeewan mein insaan ke dukh sukh
Yoon qismat ne baante ae
Phool se daaman bhara kisi ka
Miley kisi ko kaanten ae ae ae ae
Jag hai andheri raat
Jag hai andheri raat
Sambhal sambhal kar

Pyaar ka jhoola kabhi jhulaaye
Ae ae ae
Pyaar ka jhoola kabhi jhulaaye
Kabhi hain lab par naale
Is duniya ki reet yahi hai
Sun le jaane waale ae ae ae ae
Jag hai andheri raa aat
Jag hai andheri raat
Sambhal sambhal kar

Manzil teri door musaafir r r
Manzil teri door musaafir
Thhak kar baith na jaana aa
Kis se aas lagaaye pagle
Kiskaa huaa zamaana aa aa
Jag hai andheri raa aat
Jag hai andheri raat
Sambhal sambhal kar

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part VI: Year 1952
———————————————————————————————————

I had mentioned that Lata Mangeshkar reached the peak of her HFM singing career in 1951 (statistically that is) in the sense that she sang as many as 223 songs in movies released in 1951. She would never be able to exceed this tally in future, though she came close to this figure in future years on a few occasions.

1952 saw Lata Mageshkar further consolidating her position at the top. This year she sang 177 songs. Here are the details :-

Total 42 movies 24 MDs 148 177 138 31 4 4 29 Lyricists

We can see from the above table that Lata Mangeshkar had sung songs in 43 movies out of 105 movies that were released in 1952.

She worked with 24 music directors in this year. Interestingly enough, as many as 9 of these music directors were working with her for the first time. These music directors were A R Qureshi, Ali Akbar Khan, Basant Prakash, Bhola Shreshtha, Hemant Kumar, Manna Dey, S D Batish, S N Tripathi and Shyam Babu Pathak.

Likewise, she worked with 29 lyricists in these movies. Arjun Dev Ashq, Prakash Bakshi, Ramesh Gupta, Roopbani, Satyendra Athhaiyya, Shyam Hindi, Uddhav Kumar (solo credit), and Umar Ansari were the eight lyricists who were penning lyrics for Lata Mangeshkar for the first time.

By the end of 1952, Lata Mangeshkar had sung 759 songs in HFM. As many as 327 of these songs (43%) were under the batons of four music directors , namely C Ramchandra (118 songs), Husnlal Bhagatram (89 songs), Anil Biswas (65 songs) and Shankar Jaikishan (54 songs). As for lyricists 280 out of 759 songs (37%) were penned by just five lyricists, namely Rajinder Krishan (89 songs), Shakeel Badayuni (57), P L Santoshi (52 songs), Shailendra (42 songs)and Hasrat Jaipuri (40 songs).

Out of 43 movies of 1952 where Lata Mangeshkar lent her voice, all Lata songs of 29 of these movies have already been covered. That leaves us with 14 movies of 1952 which are available for us for discussing Lata Mangeshkar songs.

Alphabetically, “Annadaata”(1952) is the first such movie. This movie was produced by Sheikh Mukhtar and directed by Ismail Memon for Umar Khayyam Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Veena, Ajit, Kanhaiyalal, N A Ansari, Sankatha Prasad, Sharifa, Nazeer Kashmiri, Kamal Mohan, Sheikh, Akhtar, Itar Singh, Neena Maker, Mukri, Sheikh Mukhtar etc, with guest appearance by Murad.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Two songs, both Lata solos, have been covered in the past. This movie had six Lata solos in it.

Here is the third song, another Lata solo, from “Annadaata”(1952). This song is penned by Hasrat Jaipuri. Music is composed by Md Shafi.

Only the audio of this joie de vivre genre of song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on Veena. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picurisation of this song.

Blog Day :

4489 Post No. : 16013

I have mentioned in one of my earlier post here that these days I am looking for movies where only one song has been posted so far. In my daily browsing of the blog while I have already noted some movies, new surprises keep coming e.g. the time-lag between posting of the first song of the movie and thereafter posting of the second song. While we can understand a couple of year time-lag is considerable some have to wait for their second song almost more than five to six years or even ten years as we have seen during posting of ‘blog ten-year challenge song’. Well, if that was not enough, I have found a movie with a song posted in 2008 and still waiting for its second song to be posted on the blog. 😊

In today’s case the movie is ‘Mordhwaj-1952’ and one of its song, namely dagmag dagmag doley naiyya… has been posted on 02.06.2014.

Today we will listen to a lovely melodious song from this movie. This song took almost seven years to get posted after it was noted down. 😊

‘Mordhwaj-1952’ alias ‘Raja Mordhwaj’ (as mentioned in HFGK Vol.III-1951-1960) was directed by Balwant Bhatt for ‘Nav Anand Chitra, Bombay’. It was produced by Mangalanand Gautam and it was passed by Censor Board on 27.10.1952.

This movie had Durga Khote, Prem Adeeb, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Shashi Kapoor, Manju, Nand Kishore, Babu Raje, Urvashi, Raj Adeeb, Leela Mishra, Y.N. Joshi, Sushila, Bindu, Neeru and others.

Music for this movie was composed by Narayan Dutta and all the eight songs this movie has were penned by Bharat Vyas.

Our respected Arun Kumar ji has mentioned in detail about the music director, director and stars of this movie while presenting the first song from this movie viz. dagmag dagmag doley naiyya.

I am presenting herewith details of the songs of this movie as given below;

Lyrics

Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re
Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re

Gun gun bhanware jhoom rahen
Gun gun bhanware jhoom rahen
Kaliyon ka munh choom rahe
Munh choom rahe
Munh choom rahe
Dhaani hain dharti
Neela gagan hai ji
Aaja piya
Dole jiya
Jiya magan hai ji
Boley koyalia kaari
Boley kayalia kaari
Kaari
Kaari re
Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re

Chori chori piya pyaare
Palkon mein tumko
Chhupaa loongi re
Chhupaa loongi
Jaane na paaoge tumhen
Nainon ka kaajal banaa loongi re
Banaa loongi
Matwaari soorat par waari ee
Matwaari soorat par waari
Waari
Waari re
Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re

Painyya padoon sainyya tore
Chhup chhup ke
Mohe sataao naa ji
Sataao naa
Thhandi thhandi chaandni raaton mein
Yoon
Jiyaraa jalaao na ji
Jalaao na
He he he he

Tum jeete sajan main haari
Tum jeete sajan main haari
Haari
Haari re
Aayi rang bhari phoolon ki rut pyaari re
Ghar aaja muraari re ae ae
Ghar aaja muraari re

आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए
घर आजा मुरारी रे
आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए
घर आजा मुरारी रे

गुन गुन भंवरे झूम रहें
गुन गुन भंवरे झूम रहें
कलियों का मुंह चूम रहे
मुंह चूम रहे
मुंह चूम रहे
धानी है धरती
नीला गगन है जी
आजा पिया
डोले जिया
जिया मगन है जी
बोले कोयलिया कारी
बोले कोयलिया कारी

आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए

चोरी चोरी पिया प्यारे
पलकों में तुमको
छुपा लूंगी रे
छुपा लूंगी
जाने न पाओगे तुम्हे
नैनों का काजल बना लूंगी रे
बना लूंगी
मतवारी सूरत पर वारी
मतवारी सूरत पर वारी

आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए
घर आजा मुरारी रे

पैंय्या पडूँ सैंय्या तोरे
छुप छुप के
मोहे सताओ ना जी
सताओ ना
ठंडी ठंडी चांदनी रातों में
यूं
जियरा जलाओ ना जी
जलाओ ना
हे हे हे हे

तुम जीते सजन मैं हारी
तुम जीते सजन मैं हारी
हारी
हारी रे
आई रंग भरी फूलों की रुत प्यारी रे
घर आजा मुरारी रे ए ए
घर आजा मुरारी रे
