“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

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.

Today 24th December’2020 is the ninety-sixth birth anniversary of legendary singer Mohd Rafi(24.12.1924 – 31.07.1980).

I had come across this song long back in 2014. Only the audio of this song is available. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

meri kartaal ab na jhukegi
ab apnon se mukh na chhupaa re ae ae

By the end of 1957, Lata Mangeshkar had sung in 422 movies. In these movies, she had worked with 89 music directors and 85 lyricists.

Out of 47 movies of 1957, all Lata Mangeshkar songs have been covered in the blog in 31 movies. So we have only 16 movies of 1957 still available from where we can discuss Lata Mangeshkar songs.

Alphabetically the first such movie is “Ek Jhalak”(1957).

This movie was produced by Deep Khosla and Pradeep Kumar and directed by Kalidas for Deep and Pradeep Productions, Bombay. The movie had Vyjyantimala, Pradeep Kumar, Anita Guha, Rajendra Kumar, Pran, Mubarak, Lalita Pawar, Bipin Gupta, Randhir, Om Prakash, Hira Sawant, Rashid Khan, Tuntun, CV Rao, Patanjali, Gajendra, Amin, Fazal Khan, Saar, Deep Khosla etc in it.

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

The movie had one Lata song and that was a solo song.

Here is that Laa Mangeshkar song from “Ek Jhalak”(1957). This rare song is penned by S H Bihari. Hemant Kuamr is the lyricist.

The song, which I heard for the first time just now, sounds like an archtypical chhaayaageet song, which is best heard late at night.

Only the audio of the song is availavle. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Blog Day : 4466 Post No. : 15953

These days I am searching for movies where only one song was covered. I discussed one such movie in my earlier post here where only one song from the movie was posted. Now I have come across another such movie. It is “Shaahi Baazaar”(1957). The movie made its debut in the blog with the song ‘dil mastaane jhoom le aaj gulon ko choom le’ which was posted on 29.01.2017. That remains the only song from the movie in the blog so far.

I had mentioned it in my post that I was revisiting and listening to many Hemant Kumar songs during recent months. This exercise gave me immense pleasure. Around the same time our respected Arun Kumar ji had posted this NFS from Hemant Kumar – main saaz bajaaun tum gaao. After listening to it I was totally lost in the magic of the voice of Hemant Kumar. It went down memory lane to my ‘cassettes collecting years’ from ‘1985 to 2004’ when I used to listen to such songs contained in my prized collections of cassettes.

After that I was following with our editors for one of the ‘vintage favorites’ of Hemant Kumar which I had shared earlier to post but somehow it didn’t materuialise. Nevertheless, another vintage favorite of Hemant Kumar (from my wish list) was again posted by Arun Kumar ji which was ‘wo khushnaseeb hai jinko yahaan qaraar mila’.

I came across today’s song when I noted one comment on ‘YouTube’ that this song was an ‘NFS’ but it clarified by someone that it was from the movie ‘Shaahi Baazaar-1957’ and maybe it was not included in the movie. When I checked in HFGK Vol-III for this movie’s song it was listed there. So, I am presenting this wonderful song today here on the blog.

“Shaahi Baazaar-1957” was directed by Balwant Dave and Padmakant Pathak for ‘Chandni Chitra Productions’, Bombay. It was produced by G.A. Thakur and Lim Bilimoria.

‘Shaahi Baazaar-1957’ was a ‘costume drama’ movie. The movie had Chitra, Mahipal, Rajkumar, Sapru, Maruti, Ramesh Thakur, Chaman Puri, Naazi, Helen, Sheila Vaz, Tuntun, Bhalerao and others. Mirza Musharraf and Sheikh make guest appearance in the movie.

The movie had eight songs which were sung by six singers viz. Geeta Dutt, Hemant Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Shamshad Begam, Mohd Rafi and Balbir. Lyrics of these songs were penned by four lyricists – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan (2 songs), Aziz Kashmiri (4 songs), and Pandit Shivraj and Madan Parihar – one song each.

Music was composed by two music directors Dhani Ram and S. Haridarshan.

Today’s song is written by Pt Shivraj and it is sung by Hemant Kumar. HFGK is silent about the music director of this song.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.03.1957.

Let us now enjoy today’s song in the voice of Hemant Kumar. I am sure one will immediately fall in love with this voice. The song grows on you as we listen to this song repeatedly. The composition spells magic . I am not sure if it is by Dhani Ram as many YT comments mention or it is by S. Haridarshan. Lyrics by Pandit Shivraj are beautifully penned.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs. Actor Mahipal and actress Chitra (I guess) can be seen in the picturization of this song.)

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 84
————————————————–

This day ten years ago (viz 22 september 2020) was another normal day for the blog, when six songs from six different movies were discussed. First post of the day appeared at 7:29 AM and the final post at 9:12 AM.

Here are the details:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne Shokhiyaan-1951 All Songs covered
Teri kaafir nigaah kar gayi dil ko tabaah Miss Coca Cola-1955 All Songs covered
Yaad karoon tori batiyaan Mr Lambu-1956 All Songs covered
Tum aur ham bhool ke gham Fashion-1957 06 songs posted
Mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main Aaj Aur Kal-1963 All Songs covered
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai Mahaan-1983 01 song posted

One can see from the above that four out of six movies whose songs were covered ten years ago have been YIPPEED by now,

“Fashion”(1957) was one of the two as yet unYIPPEED movies.

“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. six songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details :-

Song Posted On
Bahaaron se poochho ・laakh sambhaala magar kho gaya 23.09.2009
Tum aur ham bhool ke gham 22.09.2010
Madbhari hain pyaar ki palkein 05.08.2012
Dharti ki goad mein aasmaan ke chhaaon mein 19.07.2016
Honthon pe tera naam 17.10.2016
Maati ko lajaanaa naa 16.07.2019

It turns out that the last two songs of the movie were multiple version songs. The first part was a multilingual song sung by Sulochana Kadam and Mubarak Begam. The second part in Hindi was sung by Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas was the lyricist. Music was composed by Hemant Kumar.

Part I is listed in HFGK as “Bindu baashi daao more haath, aaj nishi bazaari” which are in Bangla. This song is available as Bharat Ke Lok Geet. This fact is also mentioned in HFGK Part III footnote at page no.349 movie no.697.

On listening to the song, the Bangla portion is not to be found. Marathi, Gujarati, Marwadi and Punjabi portions can be heard. So it appears that the Bangla portion has got omitted for some reason.

Lyrics of this song and other BTYC details were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Lyrics of the first part (the multilingual one) as noted leaves a lot to be desired mainly because of lack of familiarity with the languages. I request our knowledgeable readers familiar with these languages to help fill in and suggest additions/ corrections in the lyrics.

With these songs, all the eight songs of “Fashion”(1957) get covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Moreover, Hemant Kumar now has 300 songs in the blog as a music director.

Blog Day :

4445 Post No. : 15894

We in this blog are taking the “blog Ten Year Challenge” project rather seriously. BTYC Posts are appearing regularly in the blog,

On the other hand, some older projects are seemingly getting neglected. For instance, introducing new movies in the blog, YIPPYing movies in the blog, ensuring blog centuries for artists are some of the projects that are not getting the attention that they should.

Project YIPPEE is a cherished project of the blog. We consciously post songs of movies with the aim of covering all songs of movies. 1218 movies have been YIPPEED so far.

More than 100 movies got YIPPEED in every year from 2012 to 2018. Then we slowed down. 2019 saw only 19 movies getting YIPPEED.

2020 has seen 38 movies getting YIPPEED so far. It is not that we have run ot of movies to take up. Right now there are dozens of movies with just one song left. So we have lots and lots of YIPPIable movies awaiting their turns.

“Hill Station”(1957) is one such movie. This movie was produced by A A Nadiadwala and directed by Shakti Samanta for Pushpa Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Bina Rai, Pradeep Kumar, K N Singh, Maruti, Protima Devi, Krishnkant, Shyama, Sangeeta, Kundan, Ridku, Kathana, Nirmal Kumar, Laxman Rao, Sheila Vaz, Seema, Nazeer, Kashmiri, Tiger (dog) etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the blog so far,

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

Song Date posted
Nayi manzil nayi raahein Multiple version song 21 January 2011
Muhabbat mein tadapne se qaraar aata hai is dil ko 25 May 2012
Gori gori patli kalaai re balamwa 25 February 2017
Ye maara wo maara 13 January 2019
Wo khushnaseeb hain jinko yahaan karaar mila 29 August 2020

The movie appears to be a suspense movie going by the songs in it. Quite a few songs sound like club song.

The seventh and final song from “Hill Station”(1957) is sung by Geeta Dutt. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of the song is available. But the lyrics suggest that it is unmistakably a club song where a dancer is cautioning the hero about the evil intentions of the bad guys.

Since it is a club dance song, it may have been picturised on Shyama or Sheila Vaz. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This song, which I heard for the first time only now, sounds like a gem, which failed to become as popular as some other club dance songs of that era.

With this song, all the seven songs of “Hill Station”(1957) have been covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day :

4443 Post No. : 15891

In my last post on the Blog, I had written about Mohana Cabral, the dancer who had ruled Hindi film industry during 1949-55. After writing this post, I thought that I should do, more or less, a similar exercise on another well- known dancer who was one of the much sought-after dancers during 1955-60, now almost forgotten. She had worked in the films of big banners like R.K. Films, Navketan Films Guru Dutt Films, Filmistan etc. The dancer is Sheila Vaz. And what a coincidence! Both Mohana and Sheila Vaz had Goan background. When Mohana ‘vacated her seat’ from Hindi films in 1955, Sheila Vaz stepped in to fill the vacant seat in 1955.

While Mohana came from theatre background and became dancer in Hindi films, Sheila Vaz came from a dancing background having learnt dancing, especially folk dancing during her teenage days in Mumbai. But unlike Mohana, Sheila Vaz had tough competitions from reigning dancers like Cuckoo, Roopmala and the emerging dancers like Helen, Kumkum, Minoo Mumtaz etc. But Sheila Vaz created a niche for herself among her contemporary dancers in Hindi films. Like Mohana who bid adieu to Hindi films in 1955 after her marriage, Sheila Vaz too left Hindi films in 1960 after her marriage and remained in Mumbai as a housewife keeping aloof from the Hindi film industry.

I could not get much information about Sheila Vaz on the internet or articles in the newspapers/film magazines as to her background, upbringing and as to how she got associated with Hindi films. Some bare information about Sheila was available in an article ‘Dances with Sheila’ written by Karan Bali which appeared in upperstall.com. The article was based on an interview of Sheila Vaz conducted by him in 2009. Since he had interviewed her for his project on the golden age of Hindi cinema, he shared only some background information and her dance songs in the article.

Sheila Vaz’s family hailed from Goa. She was born on October 18, 1934 in Dadar, Mumbai. Her schooling was completed in Mumbai. Simultaneously, she learnt dances especially Indian folk dances. Initially, she had to face some resistance from the family who were against her joining films but eventually she got permission to dance in Hindi films. She began her filmy career with Kishore Sahu’s ‘Mayur Pankh’ (1954) as dancer though Kidar Sharma’s ‘Gunaah’ (1953) was released first. [According to me, she seems to have acted as a chorus dancer in Kidar Sharma’s ‘Shokhiyaan’ (1951) followed by a full-pledged dancer in ‘Maa’ (1952)]. In the interview, Sheila Vaz had said that she was extremely fortunate enough to have worked with legends like Kidar Sharma, Raj Kapoor and Guru Dutt. Her active years in Hindi film industry was during 1955-60. She got married sometime in 1960 after which she quit her filmy career. After marriage, she became Rama Lakhanpal.

Since Sheila Vaz could neither read or understand Hindi, she was given the songs in Roman script and explained their meaning so that she would know what expressions to give. One of many interesting anecdotes revealed during the interview was the shooting of the song ‘leke pehla pehla pyaar’ from CID, which was choreographed by Zohra Sehgal. The song was shot at Worli Sea face and was completed in two days.

I have been working on the filmography of Sheila Vaz and on the songs picturised on her in Hindi films. But I found collating her filmography somewhat a hard task. The reasons were that in some films, she was not accredited. And if accredited, her name appeared as ‘Sheila Vaz’, ‘Sheela Vaz’. ‘Shela Vaz’, ‘Shila Vaz’ or simply ‘Sheela’. In this context, Sudhir ji helped me by sending a list of her films by culling out information from HFGK which has listed 61 films between 1955 to 1961. I compared the HFGK list with my list which I had compiled from checking on the internet with different spellings of Sheila Vaz and also from our Blog which has tagged her songs under the category ‘Sheila Vaz Dance Songs’. With these, my revised list merging with HFGK list provided by Sudhir ji came to a whooping 70 films in about 6 years of her Hindi film career.

Year-wise details of Sheila Vaz’s 70 films are as under:

1952 (1): Maa

1954 (1): Mayur Pankh

1955 (4): House No.44, Sardaar, Shree 420, Tees Maar Khan.

1956 (8): Anokha Jungle, Basre Ki Hoor, CID, Durgesh Nandini, Jallad, Kaarwaan. Patraani, Shatranj.

1957 (23): Abhimaan, Agra Road, Bade Sarkaar, Bansari Bala, Begunaah, Ek Saal, Hill Station, Johny Walker, Maya Nagri, Mirza Sahibaan, Miss India, Mr. X, Nausehrwaan-e-Adil, Pawan Putra Hanuman, Ram Hanuman Yudha, Sant Raghu, Sati Pareeksha, Shaahi Baazar, Sharada, Silver King, Tumsa Nahi Dekha, Ustaad, Yahudi Ki Ladki.

1958 (9):Chaubees Ghante, Hathkadi, Light House, Mr. Qartoon MA, Paravrish, Raj Sinhaasan, Sawera, Solva Saal, Taqdeer.

1959 (11): Bus Conductor, Chaand, Chhoti Bahen, Guesh House, Jagga Daaku, Jaagir, Kaagaz Ke Phool, Madaari, Madhu, Naya Sansaar, Samraat Prithviraj Chauhan.

1960 (8): Bade Ghar Ki Bahu, Bahaana, Duniya Jhukti Hai, Kala Aadmi, Laal Quila, Manzil, Miyan Biwi Razi, Superman.

1961 (5): Batwaara, Chhote Nawab, Modern Girl, Ramlila, Ramu Dada.

Our Blog have listed 33 songs picturised on Sheila Vaz under the category Sheila Vaz dance songs for which video clips are available to watch. There would have been more of her dance songs if the VCDs/DVDs of her other films were available on video sharing platforms. I have listed some of her popular dance songs with links below:

sach keh den gar bura na maano – ‘Maa’ (1952)

tandaana tandaana tandaana – ‘Mayur Pankh’ (1954)

ramaiyya vastavaiyya – ‘Shree 420’ (1955)

leke pahla pahla pyaar – ‘CID’ (1956)

thandi thandi hawa pooche unka pataa – ‘Johny Walker’ (1957)

jaane kaisa jaadoo kiya re – ‘Parvarish’ (1958)

akeli mujhe chhod na jaana – Madaari’ (1959)

suna hai jab se mausam hai pyaar ke kaabil – ‘Ramu Dada’ (1960)

With 70 films to her credit in a short filmy career of 6 years, Sheila Vaz was in great demand for her dance songs. I have watched almost all of her dance songs for which video clips are available. One thing comes out clearly from her dance songs is that she has an electrifying presence in almost all her dance songs. For example, in dil ka haal sune dilwaala, though Sheila Vaz presence in the song is less than one minute out of 5 minutes of song, when she dances with Raj Kapoor, the attention of the audience would be more on her rather than on Raj Kapoor. Similarly, in the song, thandi thandi hawa pooche unka pataa, in my view, Sheila Vaz outperformed Shyama. When the old timers listen to the songs like leke pahla pahla pyaar, they are likely to remember more of Sheila Vaz though Dev Anand and Shakila were also present in the song sequence.

On the basis of my searches, I think only 3 dance songs of Sheila Vaz for which video clips are available are remained to be covered in the Blog. Of the three songs, I present one of her dance songs, ‘sasuraal mein hogi tu akeli’ from the film, ‘Mirza Saahibaan’ (1957). The song is sung by Shamshad Begum and picturised on Sheila Vaz. The song is written by Verma Malik which is set to music by Sardul Singh Kwatra. The audio clip has a shorter version of the song without the second stanza of the video clip.

This song ia probably based on a Punjabi traditional pre-wedding song. And what a guidance to the ‘would be bride’ from her friends!

ban jayiyo na saas ki cheli
saheli zara dat ke rahiyo

Enjoy the dance song.

———————————————–————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 76
———————————————————————————–

This date 10 years ago (11 september 2010) was rather unremarkable, in contrast to the same day in 1893, or 2011, when rather more important events had taken place. On 11 september 1893, Swami Vivekanand delivered an iconic and eloquent speech at the Chicago Convention of Parliament of Religions. Introducing Hinduism to the world, Swami Vivekanand spoke about intolerance, religion and the need to end all forms of fanaticism. on 11 september 2001, One of the biggest terrorist attacks took place at New York.

In cricketing news, Lala Amarnath was born this day in 1911. Sri Lanka earned their first test match victory on this day in 1985 (no prizes for guessing that it was against India).

On this day in 1967, Indian troop gave a bloody nose to Chinese aggressors, when Chinese troops got a taste of their own medicine and nearly 300 plus Chinese troops was killed at Nathu La (Sikkim- China bordeer) when Brigadier Sagat Singh took matter in his own hands and retaliated in a manner that left Chinese army shellshocked for nearly half a century.

11 september 2010 was a rather more sedate day when things happened in a routine way, not only around the world but even in the blog. Six songs from six different movies were covered on that day. Here are the details :-

Blog Song number Song Movir-year Remarks
2945 Kyaa mil gayaa Bhagwaan tumhe dil ko dukhaa ke Anmol Ghadi 1946 YIPPEED
2946 Achchaa hotaa jo dil mein tu aayaa naa hotaa Naadaan 1951 10 songs covered out of 11
2947 Radha na bole na bole na bole re Aazaad 1955 YIPPEED
2948 Chaand chupchaap hai sitaare gumsum Daal Mein Kaala 1964 3 songs covered out of 8
2949 Chale chalen se sajan dheere dheere Paayal 1957 5 songs covered out of 9
2950 Mehfil meri raaten meri Badnaam 1975 YIPPEED

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

jhuki jhuki ankhiyaan ghaayal hain
piya milan ko chali raadhika
baaj rahi paayal hai
jhuki jhuki ankhiyaan
kahen ye batiyaan
haayye jiya ghaayal hai

oonchi neechi raah preet ki
paayal chhamm chhamm doley
behkey behkey paaon padey to
dhadhak dhadhak dil boley
oonchi neechi raah preet ki
paayal chhamm chhamm doley
behkey behkey paaon padey to
dhadhak dhadhak dil boley
sunn ri saanwri tu hai baawri
dil mein tere halchal hai
piya milan ko chali Raadhika
baaj rahi paayal hai
jhuki jhuki ankhiyaan kahen ye batiyaan
haayye jiya ghaayal hai

mann hi mann mein dekh rahi hai
preet ke sundar sapney ae
jamuna tat par
raah dekhte hongey preetam apney
mann hi mann mein dekh rahi hai
preet ke sundar sapney ae
jamunaa tat par
raah dekhthe hongey preetam apney
huaa saamna koyee thhaamna
haayye badi mushkil hai
piya milan ko chali Raadhika
baaj rahi paayal hai
jhuki jhuki ankhiyaan
kahen ye batiyaan
haayye jiya ghaayal hai
piya milan ko chali Raadhika
baaj rahi paayal hai
jhuki jhuki ankhiyaan
kahen ye batiyaan
haaye jiya ghaayal hai

Today’s song is from the film Hill Station-1957.

The peak of the Golden Era of HFM was in the decade of the 50’s. In this decade, probably all operating MDs gave their best songs and the ordinary, common music loving film goer did not know how much good music he could digest. For some, it was almost an indigestion with excessive indulgence in good, Divine music and this condition had no medicine. The music lovers had to endure and enjoy the excess provision of his choicest music.

1957 – what an year it was! The best year in the Golden Era! The best year in the 50s! The best year for melody and music! Such wonderful films came in this year!!! The lineup of 1957 films looks like the selection of the creamy layer in everlasting music – ‘Mother India’, ‘Pyasa’, ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’, ‘Bhabhi’, ‘Asha’, ‘Miss Mary’, ‘Naya Daur’, ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’, ‘Paying Guest’, ‘Nau Do Gyarah’, ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’. ‘Nausherwaan e Adil, ‘Gateway Of India’, ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke, ‘Kathputali’, ‘Sharada’ . . . Films like Baarish, Ab Dilli door nahin, Abhiman, Bada Bhai, Begunah, Beti, Chhote Babu, Coffee House, Dushman, Johnny Walker, Miss Bombay, Miss India, Mr. X, Narsi Bhagat, Paak Daaman, Pawanputra Hanuman, Ustad, Zamana, Garma Garam had equally melodious songs like other films mentioned, albeit may not be so famous. Films produced in Madras were quite popular. AVM’s ‘Bhabhi’, ‘Miss Mary’ and ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke’, Prasad Production’s first Hindi film ‘Sharda’, and MV Raman’s film ‘Asha’ played havoc with their captive audiences. Films from south somehow have always concocted a success formula, mixing comedy, tragedy, social message, excellent production values and above all superb music, which made their films very popular everywhere.

Satyen Bose’s ‘Bandi’ brought together all the three Ganguly brothers in one film for the first time. Later he would repeat this feat in ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’ in 1958. ‘Musaafir’, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s first Hindi film as a director, was an experimental film depicting the phases of life – birth, life, death and rejuvenation, symbolically through a succession of tenants in a house on rent. Director Amiya Chakravarty’s competition with Gyan Mukherjee came to an end with his unexpected demise while the making of ‘Kathputali’ was in progress. The film was completed by Nitin Bose. (Later, Gyan Mukherjee also passed away while making ‘Sitaron Se Aagey’ (1958) which was later completed by Satyen Bose. Both films had the same story and same heroine).

With the musical blockbuster ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ from Filmistan, Nasir Hussain introduced his own success formula of entertaining films and minted crores by repeating it several times, in a new garb. This film changed Shammi Kapoor’s luck, and made him an A grade actor. However, it did not much benefit the heroine Ameeta. She remained where she was – a second grade actress. Filmistan also released ‘Paying Guest’, with chocolate hero Dev Anand, with superb music and songs composed by SD Burman. Dev also featured in ‘Nau Do Gyarah’, another musical entertainer from Navketan, his home production company.

A surprise hit that year was the socio-religious film ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’. The song “Zara Saamne To AaO Chhaliye” became the unexpected top song of the year and an iconic one at that! ‘Apradhi Kaun’ was genuinely an excellent detective story. Amiya Chakravarty’s ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’ was a hit due to its superb music, though its cast was quite ordinary. ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ got the national award. Amiya Chakravarty and Gope passed away this year. Nimmi got married. Vividh Bharati started its broadcast on 3rd October 1957.

Compared to all these musical giants. today’s film Hill Station-57 was not at all comparable. MD Hemant Kumar gave music to 9 films in 1957 alone- must be his maximum for any year. Music Aficionados still debate vehemently whether Hemant Kumar was a better singer or a better MD. As MD, he gave music to 55 films, composing 423 songs. As a singer he sang 320 songs in 173 films. In 1957, while he gave music to 9 films, he actually sang songs in 12 films.

I have not seen this film – that time or even at a later time, because I was not a fan of Bina Rai or Pradeep Kumar. Produced by A A Nadiadwala, for the banner- Pushpa Pictures, this Social film was directed by Shakti Samant. In the cast were also, K N Singh, Maruti, Prtotima Devi, Krishnakant, Shyama,Sheela Vaz and many others, including a Dog named Tiger. I always wondered, how can anybody name a Dog as Tiger, when Tigers are never known to be named as Dog. And then, what’s the role of a Dog in a Social film ? Of course in some films, trained dogs do some story turning acts, as in film ” Hum aapke hain Kaun-94″

In Hindi films, there are some senior actors ( I mean, those who have been in films for more than 25-30 years), who remained quiet, without attracting much comments or getting even few lines in the film reviews. They came, stayed and went as quietly as they remained in films. Actors like Sankatha Prasad, Niranjan Sharma,Habib, Anwar, Shaikh, Shivraj etc etc. One such name was Krishna Kant.

The name of krishna kant or K K is known to many people. Krishnakant ( 15-9-1922 to 24-10-2016) was a noted character actor of long standing. His career spanned from 1943 to 1989, a whopping 46 years. After retirement he had settled in Surat, Gujarat. His life story has been made into a Gujarati book ” Guzra hua zamana” written by the famous author Shri Biren Kothari ji. He has gifted me a copy of this book. Reading this book takes you into those times.KK had a knack of telling the history in an interesting way, with a lot many photographs. Till the last day (94 years) his memory was excellent. During my visit to Surat in early 2016, I could not meet him, due to paucity of time. This will pinch me forever. Our Sudhir ji and Bakshish Singh ji met him, when they went to Surat to meet Harsh Raghuwanshi ji.

Krishnakant acted in 109 Hindi, 16 Gujarati, 2 Bangla and 2 English movies. He has also directed 2 Hindi and 13 Gujarati films. In addition, he was active on TV in his later years. He acted in 8 Hindi and 6 Gujarati serials and directed 3 Hindi serials. He also acted in 1 Hindi and 7 Gujarati stage dramas. Here is a short Bio data of him-

Returned to cinema in the early 70s; turned to direction with Dakurani Ganga, adapting Mehta’s novel Pravaha Paltavyo.

Today’s song is a very good, typical Lover’s song by Hemant Kumar. The song had its own share of popularity for some time in those days. Now enjoy the song, with Nostalgia…..


Song-Wo khushnaseeb hain jinko yahaan qaraar mila (Hill Station)(1957) Singer-Hemant Kumar, lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

wo khushnaseeb hain jinko yahaan qaraar mila
hamen to dil jo mila wo bhi beqaraar mila
wo khushnaseeb hain jinko yahaan qaraar mila
hamen to dil jo mila wo bhi beqaraar mila
wo khushnaseeb hain

mili hain pyaar mein dar dar ki thokaren hamko
mili hain pyaar mein dar dar ki thokaren hamko
lagaaye rakhte hain seene se har ghadi gham ko
jo khatm ho na kabhi aisa intazaar mila
hamen to dil jo mila wo bhi beqaraar mila
wo khushnaseeb hain

sitam hai gham ke samandar mein har khushi doobi
sitam hai gham ke samandar mein har khushi doobi
hamaare ashq mein khud apni zindagi doobi
sahaara de koi aisa na ek baar mila
hamen to dil jo mila wo bhi beqaraar mila
wo khushnaseeb hain jinko yahaan qaraar mila
hamen to dil jo mila wo bhi beqaraar mila
wo khushnaseeb hain
