Today’s song is from a ‘C’ grade stunt film Al Hilal aka The judgement of Allah- 1958.

Those readers who keep a track of old films may remember that way back in 1935, Sagar Movietone had produced a film of the same name Al Hilal. It was the first film of Mehboob Khan as a Director and the film had Kumar and Sitara Devi as the lead pair. That film was quite successful and even Baburao Patel of Film India magazine had praised not only the film but also hailed Mehboob Khan as a Diamond for Future.

Compared to the banner, the director or even the lead pair of the Sagar film, this Al Hilal of 1958 was absolutely nowhere. In the 40’s and the 50’s C grade action/stunt films were not even seen by educated audiences. The film magazines and newspapers never took notice of such ” Maar dhad ” films. These films were always shown in the dilapidated old theatres situated in labour class bastis. The audience of such stunt films used to be from lower strata of society, the daily bread earners and the low level workers. But then, this film Al Hilal-1958 produced something that amazed the whole film world !

Before I tell you more about this film, I will tell you one small story.When I was studying in school in Hyderabad, I had a classmate by the name Ramanlal Jain. he was very poor in studies and always used to be the centre of criticism of our teachers of all subjects. In every annual examination his rank used to be usually in the last 3 students. But he passed every year. When we were in the 11th standard, we all studied hard for the 12th class Board examination. Our school had a very good record in the ‘Pass’ percentage of students. Based on the history of Ramanlal Jain’s scores and studies, the school denied him entry into the 12 th class and he had to change his school. He coolly left.

In those days, very few students used to get the First Class and their names would be published in local newspapers in Hyderabad. Among the total of about 10000 students of 12th class Board Examination, hardly 20 to 30 students used to pass in First division. That year, when the results were announced, I was one of the First division students and my name was published in the newspapers. I, my family and my school were very happy.

Our school teachers and we all students were shocked to find Ramanlal Jain’s name also in the Rank holders’ list of that year, from another school. We were all astonished as to how this dull student with a poor history of success appeared in the Rank Holders’ list ! But it was true !! He had done it !!!

Same case was with the film Al Hilal-1958. It was just another C grade stunt film, about which not many people even knew, which was being shown in the old city cinema hall in a poor Basti. But it gave an unprecedented and unexpected shock when one of its songs – ‘ Hamen to loot liya milke husnwalon ne’ became an All India craze and very popular in no time. This qawwali became so popular that in almost every Irani hotel the record was played repeatedly, on public demand. Hundreds of the records were sold daily and the film’s name also became famous forever.

The first famous qawwali was from the film Zeenat-” Aahen na bhari…..” in 1945. The second was from the film Khidki-1948, ” Kismat hamare saath hai’. These two popular qawwalis were not sung by any Qawwal, whereas Al Hilal qawwali was sung by a professional qawwal- Ismail Azad. He had earlier sung a qawwali in the film Taj aur Talwar-56 and Jahaji Lootera-57. The fallout of the popularity of this qawwali was the rise of the other qawwals like Yusuf Azad qawwal and Jani babu qawwal as well as Shakila Bano Bhopali.

The qawwali of the film Jahaji Lootera-57 was filmed on actor Shaikh and the Al Hilal qawwali also was filmed on him. One interesting point was that this qawwali was in two parts and the second part was shown after the words THE END appeared on the screen and the audience got up to leave. Shaikh came on the screen and asked them to sit to listen to the second part of the song !.

Sheikh was a Comedy actor in the 40s,50s and the 60s. He has acted in 170 films,as per Muvyz stats. He sang 10 songs in 8 films as per HFGK (Daulat ki duniya-47, Fifty Fifty-UR, Nakli Baap-49, Jiya Raja-49, Dushman-50, Simba-51, Hatimtai-56 and Naagmani-57).

He was essentially a B and C grade film comedian, so his name is not known to most people. Sanjeev Narvekar’s book, “Eena meena deeka” gives very little information about him. In his hey-days, he was popular in a class of people who were regulars of stunt,fantasy and action films. He was a fixture in almost all Wadia films. He was the main on screen singer in the iconic qawali, “Humen to loot liya milke husn walon ne ‘ from the film Al Hilal-58.

He directed 2 films, Shahnaaz-48 and Mr.Toofan-63. He started his career in Hindi films with Pakke badmash-39. Before that he had acted in a Marathi film “Netaji Palkar-39″by Bhalji Pendharkar (info from CITWF). His last film was Aadamkhor-85. No information is available on his life anywhere.

The cast of the film was Shakila, Mahipal,Hiralal, Shaikh, Nasreen, Sulochana, Indira, Maqbool, Gulab and many others. The story of the film was-

This was a story in an Arab country. King Kehran (Heeralal) wants his subjects to worship only him and not Allah. Those who believed in Allah were tortured and killed too. mahipal is one of his slaves and a believer in allah. Shakila is a poor knife seller. In the first of the film shakila moves about as a boy. She stays in the jungle and is a believer too.
The king gets a son, but the astrologer tells him that the son will become a believer. As the son grows he is also tortured. Finally the son is left in the jungle to die. Shakila finds him and brings him up. Mahipal is exposed as a believer and escapes from the palace along with his friend Fazlu (Shaikh) to the jungle. here he meets Shakila, both fall in love and sings some songs. Fazlu also loves Nasreen, another girl in the village.
Finally there is a fierce attack on the king, wherein Shakila kills the king. The prince is crowned as the new king. Shakila and mahipal unite. Shaikh and Nasreen also unite and all ends well.

Nasreen who acted in this film was the youngest sister of Shakeela. The younger sister was Noor-who married Johnny Walker and retired from films. Nasreen also worked in this film and after leaving films, got married and settled down. Only Shakila continued in films. There was another actress Nasreen who had acted in the film Shahjahan-46 and Eik Roz-47. She was the daughter of actress Anwari and Music Director Rafiq Ghaznavi. Her real name was Zarine. She too left films, married Agha Liyaqat and settled in London and Dubai. Her daughter was Salma Agha.

The qawwali “Hamen to Loot liya” became the 5000th song on this Blog, jointly written by three posters and posted on 13-11-2011. Today’s song is a duet sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Manna Dey. It is filmed on Shakila and Mahipal on the screen. This is the 4thsong rom the movie here. It was composed by Bulo C Rani and the lyrics were by Shevan Rizvi.

Blog Day :

4952 Post No. : 16818

Today’s song is a special one. It is from the film Taxi 555-1958. The film was released on 30-11-1958 at Super Cinema in Bombay. Why I call this song a Special song is, because this song ( Diya bujhaao, jhatpat jhatpat ) is a parody of K L Saigal’s well known song ” Diya Jalaao, jagmag jagmag” from the film Tansen -1943. Of course the Parody stops only at the Mukhada of the song. The style or the tune of the rest of the song is entirely different, nevertheless the mukhada, being famous, undoubtedly reminds us of Saigal’s song.

Fil Taxi 555-1958 was a Murder Mystery, though HFGK calls it a Social film. Although the 50’s decade was the peak of the Golden period of HFM, in terms of Melody, Content, Tune and Rendition, the type of films slowly changed to Crime, Murder mysteries and Detective stories, towards the end of the decade, The 60’s decade was full of such films. However films like Agra Road,, Aparadhi Kaun, Begunah, Nau do gyarah and Ustad (5 films) in 1957 and 10 O’Clock, 12 O’Clock, Detective, Howrah Bridge, Kala Pani, Mujrim, Phir subah Hogi, Post box 999, Solva saal, Taxi 555 (10 films) in 1958 were indicators of the dominant film genres of the coming times.

Film Taxi 555, a Murder mystery filmwas made by Golden Movies- owned by producer Mulkraj Bhakri and directed by his brotherLekhraj Bhakri. All the 8 songs of the film were written by Prem Dhawan and the Music Director was Sardar Malik, assisted ably by arranger Sebastian D’Souza.

As the name suggests, Sebastian was from Goa. A typical Goan likes to live life-“Sushegaat”- which loosely means “Araam se” or a carefree life. Their philosophy is Eat, Drink and be Merry. This Merry part included Music. Goa has given many musicians to India. Lata/Asha are from Mangeshi-Goa, though the family had shifted to Kolhapur, Music Directors Dattaram(Wadkar) and N.Datta(Datta Naik), Singers Kishori Amonkar, Kesarbai Kerkar, Shobha Mudgal, Hema Sardesai, Prabhakar Karekar, Remo fernandes, Lorna are from Goa.(The list is only indicative, not exhaustive).
Anthony Gonsalves was from Majorda-Goa. He worked for Naushad, O P Nayyar and Laxmikant Pyarelal (‘My name is Anthony Gonsalves’ song is a tribute by Laxmikant Pyarelal to him, as he taught Pyarelal so many things including Notations.)

Chick Chocolate aka Anthony Vaz from Aldona-Goa—he worked for C.Ramchandra mainly.

Chris Perry worked for Khayyam,R D Burman,Kalyanji Anandji, and Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Frank Fernando- worked with Anil Biswas, Kishore Kumar, Roshan and C.Ramchandra.

Sebastian D’Souza from Bicholim-Goa—worked for Shanker Jaikishen from 1952 to 1975 and also with O P Nayyar. Incidentally, he is the one Arranger who worked with a maximum number of different Music Directors,irrespective whether they were small, medium or big ones, new or old ones.

Most of the players of western instruments in the Orchestras were from Goa. Only some are mentioned.

Sebastian D’Souza was one of the most reputed arrangers in Bollywood, who did his best-known work with the duo of Shankar-Jaikishan between 1952 and 1975. His first break was with O. P. Nayyar. The first tune he arranged was “Pritam aan milo”, which was sung by C. H. Atma in 1955. He devised a system of notation that incorporated the microtones that characterised Indian melodies.

Sebastian was born on 29 January 1906 in Reis-Magos, Goa. He learnt to play the violin and piano in a local church school. While learning these instruments, he also learnt to write music notation. It was during this time that he listened to the famous symphonies of well-known composers of the western world, namely, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Haydon and Richard Wagner. Deeply interested in violin and piano, Sebastian continued his learning and went to places like Allahabad, Mussorie and Delhi. At Delhi, in Hotel Astoria, he started his own band and people appreciated it. In 1942, he went to Lahore, and in Hotel Stiffels, he started his own band. This continued until 1947. After partition, he went to Bombay and started his career as a violinist in the film industry. He played for well-known music directors like Anil Biswas, Naushad, Vinod, Ghulam Haider, Husnlal-Bhagatram, S. D. Burman, Sajjad Hussain and Shanker-Jaikishan.

He started his career as a Music Arranger in 1948-49 with O. P. Nayyar when Nayyar recorded his first song “Preetam aan milo…..” sung by C. H. Atma and written by Mrs. Saroj Mohini Nayyar (O. P. Nayyar’s wife) . After three years, Nayyar signed his first film, Dalsukh Pancholi’s “Aasmaan”, as an independent music director. At that time he called Sebastian to work as his Arranger. Sebastian, thus, started his career as an arranger with O. P. Nayyar in 1952 which he continued till 1973. The last film for which he worked with O. P. Nayyar was ‘Pran Jaye Par Vachan Na Jaye’. Incidentally this was also the last film of singer Asha Bhosale with Nayyar.

In 1952, Sebastian’s friend Sunny Castellino, who worked as an arranger for Shanker-Jaikishan, introduced Sebastian to the duo. So Sebastian started as Shanker-Jaikishan’s arranger from 1952 with Amiya Chakravarty’s Daag, and continued until 1975. Film Sanyasi was Sebastian’s last film with them.

In film Daag as an arranger, Sebastian’s most successful innovative work was the creation of a memorable counter-melody for a song sung by both Talat Mehmood and Lata Mangeshker –‘Ai mere dil kahin aur chal…..’. According to Sebastian, in this song he used the accordion for creating counter-melody along with violin and mandolin. And the result was excellent. Sebastian used accordion for interlude music in a number of songs but its use as the main instrument for counter-melody was rare.

Shankar-Jaikishan being lovers of Indian Classical Music, composed a LP record titled Raga Jazz Style in which they presented 11 Raga in Jazz style. Sebastian arranged the music and wrote the notations. Sebastian also worked for great music directors like Salil Chowdhury, Vasant Desai, S. D. Burman, Madan Mohan, Roshan, Dattaram and N. Dutta. Sebastian occasionally worked for Vinod, Sardar Malik, S.Mohinder, Kalyanji Veerji Shah, Kanu Ghosh, Iqbal Qureshi, Prem Dhawan, Shyamji Ghanashyamji and Nitin Mangesh as well. And he never forgot to express his gratitude towards renowned musicians such as Robert Correa and Mike Machado (the Pianists), Albuquerque, Verga, Simplicio D’Souza and John Gonsalves (the Cellists), V Balsara and Goody Seervai (the Accordionists), Duorado, Narvekar and Karnad (the solo Violinists) and David (the Mandolin player). He would also fondly recall his contemporary music arrangers such as Johny Gomes, Castellino, Chic Chocolate, Ram Singh, Rizbert and Franky.

When he died, on 9-3-1998, in his own Bungalow- “Seb-Maria “, he instructed that no money to be spent on his funeral and all that was saved should go to charity; such is the modesty of greats. Sebastian left behind a rich musical legacy which will live into generations after his time.

Sebastian’s remarkable contribution was his ability to combine Western orchestra with the Indian. His are the songs which we remember even today due to the richness of his musical arrangements and the variations in his melodies. Sebastian was a complete musician. His music lovers will remember his music for years to come. (Thanks to an article by Dr. Padmanabh Joshi. Parts of his article have been used here with adaptations,along with an article from the book ‘Rahe na rahe hum’ by Shantaram Mankikar and my notes.)

The film’s director was Lekhraj Bhakri. Let us know more about Lekhraj through an interesting incident in the life of a well known artiste…

An youngster, like millions of displaced Punjabis ,crossed over to India in 1947 from Abbottabad ( Now Pakistan), when the Indian subcontinent was divided. He and his family, like hundreds of other refugee families from Punjab, were given shelter in Kingsway camp located in north Delhi.

It was by chance that the youngster named Hari Kishan Goswami met his distant cousin Lekh Raj Bhakri, a filmmaker, who was on a visit to Delhi. The well experienced movie maker was impressed with the personality of the lanky handsome man & inquired from him if he is interested in being an actor. The young lad, who was a fan of Dilip Kumar , readily agreed & reached Bombay. Those days Bhakri Sahab was making a film Fashion-1957, with his favourite actor Pradeep Kumar ,Mala Sinha,Chandra Shekhar,Jabeen & Kammo & the shooting was in progress . Mr Goswami was told to be in the studio , to get himself acquainted with the nitty gritty of the film making .

So Goswami started working as an assistant to director Lekhraj Bhakri- for the film Fashion-57. There was a song in the film, in the voice of Hemant Kumar, to be shot on a Beggar on the screen. On the day of shooting, the actor who was supposed to do the role of the beggar and sing this song, did not come. Lekhraj Bhakri caught Hari kishen Goswami, put on the make up of the bearded beggar and made him sing this song on camera. Thus the debut of Goswami took place with Hemant Kumar’s song !

No one from the audience could ever imagine that the person with dishevelled hairs, having a big beard , and with a song on his lips is a handsome young man of 19 years . The movie was ‘Fashion’, released in 1957 & the song was , Composed & crooned by Hemant Kumar . It was the young man’s first exposure before camera. The song was to chide a wayward hero (Pradeep Kumar),who has left his wife (Mala Sinha),for another woman (Kammo) having ill intentions.The song was “ Dharti ki godh mein…” After Fashion ,Bhakri Sahab made Sahara in 58 ,with M Rajan & Meena Kumari & Hari Kishan Goswami ( who now wanted to be called as Manoj Kumar, the name Dilip Kumar had in a film), was given a substantial role . Bhakri Sahab, true to his words, took on Manoj Kumar in his subsequent movies Panchayat, Chand & Honeymoon (1960).

Lekh Raj Bhakri , directed his first film Rajpoot-51 and thereafter he regularly directed movies ,like Resham,Thokar,Dak Babu etc within a modest budget . He directed about Twenty movies during 1950 to 1962. He made most of his movies under the banner Tasviristan ,owned by Kuldip Sehgal and his sibling Mulkh Raj Bhakri’s Golden movies . Mulkh Raj Bhakri ,besides being a producer of Hindi/Punjabi movies ,was also a writer & lyricist . He wrote the famous song ‘Haye Chanda Gaye Pardes’ for Chakori, which is still appreciated by connoisseurs of film music. Mulkh Raj Bhakri also made Bhangra ,a super hit musical in Punjabi ,which had Sunder & Nishi in lead roles.

Mr Lekh Raj Bhakri made many family oriented movies ,like Maa Beta, Tange Wali ,Naya Zamana,HoneyMoon etc. At the same time ,he had no problems directing films of other genres for those who wanted to watch fantasy & Arabian Nights movies. For them he made Naqab, Alladin Laila & Nag Padmini . Later,he made a musical Muslim social ‘Shama’ ,which had Suraiyya & Nimmi & music was composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Lekh Raj Bhakri ,beside Manoj Kumar, introduced music directors Kanu Ghosh with his film Naya Zamaana (1957 ) & Iqbal Qureishi with Panchayat (1958 ). He also introduced actor Vijay Dutt with Shama. Mr Bhakri hung his boots after Banarsi Thug ,a hugely entertaining movie ,released in 1962. He did not further attempt to make movies , as after the arrival of colour ,the budget of Hindi movies was increased many fold & now it was a risky business. It did not suit the temperament of a simple soul like Bhakri Saheb . Mr Bhakri,who did not believe in showing off ,always kept a low profile despite being a successful director , bade adieu to show business . Much later, he passed away on 03 March 1976 at the age of sixty years. It was a matter of time ,when the era of principled film makers ,who made purposeful movies with message , came to an end & proposal makers having no regards for ethical values arrived with the sole aim of earning money .( adapted from the article by shri M.N.Sardana ji, with thanks. )

Today’s song is an interesting one with entertaining Lyrics. This is the 3rd song of the film on this Blog – all duets of S. Balbir


Song- Diya bujhaao jhatpat jhatpat (Taxi 555) (1958) Singers- Rafi, Balbir, Lyricist- Prem Dhawan, MD- Sardar Malik (assistant / arranger Sebastian)

Lyrics

Diya bujhaao jhatpat jhatpat
Diya bujhaao jhatpat jhatpat
Diya bujhaao
sone waale sun re
tere aangan mein murga boley
(kukdoo koon koon

kaahe na ankhiyaan kholey
diya bujhaa

jhatpat jhatpat

jo jaagat hai so paawat hai
jo sowat hai so khowat hai
soch zara

meethhe sur mein kaaga gaaye

phir bhi meethhe geet gaat hoon

Blog Day :

4950 Post No. : 16812

———————————————–—————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 14
————————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago (viz February 2012) was a “normal” day for the blog. As many as seven songs from seven different movies were discussed in the blog on that day.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog ten years ago:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5394 Jhummak jhummak chal mere haathi Poonam (1952) Movie YIPPEED by now
5395 Dard e jigar thahar zara Aurat(1953) Movie YIPPEED by now
5396 Mohabbat ki raahon mein chalna sambhal ke Udan Khatola (1955) Movie YIPPEED by now
5397 Jaaye na pakad kahin roz roz ki chori Mujrim(1958) Movie YIPPEED by now
5398 Tera teer o be peer dil ke aaram paar hai Sharaarat(1959) Movie YIPPEED by now
5399 Sab pyaar ki baaten karte hain Matlabi Duniya(1961) 4 songs covered out of 12 so far
5400 Tu hai mera yaar aur main hoon tera yaar Milan(1958) 5 songs covered out of 8

We notice that five movies whose songs were covered have since been YIPPEED in the blog. The last two movies whose songs were covered on that day are the only two movies that are still eligible for blog ten year challenge today.

The final songs of the movie was a special song with a special writeup. That song was song post number 5400 of the blog. That song was picturised on a kid and a dog, and I had taken this opportunity to discuss my pet dogs, that were then just over one year old. One of those dogs is still with me.

Today, ten year later, here is another song from “Milan”(1958). Unlike the “Milan”(1958) song covered in the blog ten years ago, the song being discussed today is a rare song. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of the song is available. I reuest our knowledeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Songs at Sl. No. 6, 7, 9, 13, 14, 15, 17, 23 & 24 are not yet posted in the blog.  The song I am presenting today is at Sl. No. 17, i.e. from the film ‘Balyogi Upmanyu’ (1958).  Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this mythological film’s songs composed by Chitragupt.  Here Mohammed Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar are accompanying Geeta Dutt for singing this song talking of hard work, fruits of hard work, farming, self-confidence, hope and a certain bragging attitude etc.  But the happy spirit of the song is infectious, and one can listen to it again and again.

The following 2 songs of this movie are posted in the blog, making this the 3rd song.

Baalyogi Upmanyu(1958)(2/8) MD-Chitragupta

Duniya Ke Anyaaiyon Anyaay Ki Hoti Khair Nahin

Mann Nirgun Ke Geet Ab Gaata Jaa

I found this song a few days ago, while looking for Chitragupt-Rafi songs, and I thought it is a very enjoyable and nice composition.  All three singers are in sync with the accompanying chorus.  I need to post some solos to even out the series.  There are too many songs by Geeta Dutt in obscure films.  I have not done bad so far, considering the songs were all new songs for me.   Hope to find some known, popular songs not yet posted to fit in the series.


Song – Kaam Karo. . . Mat Araam Karo (Balyogi Upmanyu) (1958) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Geeta Dutt, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Chitragupt

Blog Day:

4909 Post No. : 16723

———————————–
This Week, That Year – 8
———————————–
07Nov – 13Nov, 2011

OK yes, the tag line is correct, but the date is definitely out of sequence. Sincere apologies for this parallax effect. This is not the week of 7th Nov. This post should have come at least 6 weeks ago. And truly, the post template and lyrics and all the tag stuff was ready then, but the words to compose the post were trapped behind some real and imagined ‘constraints’.

Ah but you will say, why pitch in with the week of 7th Nov now, six weeks later. Well surely, for a special reason. That was a special week, with a very special milestone reached by the blog. On Saturday, the 13th November, 2011, we reached the 5000th post. That day, the blog had been in existence for 1,213 days – exactly 3 years, 3 months and 26 days. And we completed 5,000 posts, at a simple daily average of 4+ songs – day on day.

Superlatives have become repetitive on this blog now, as we have written time and again about the blog’s progress over the years. But the wonder is that the wonder simply does not cease to amaze – the wonder of the blog itself, of being on the blog, of being part of the bandwagon. Whether the pace is slow or fast, we have never been without steam.

Looking back then, from this 13+ years vantage point, it seems like just a speck on the past time line. But just think about it – about the feelings then, on arriving at the 5000th station of this journey. And I am sure, as we looked ahead at the future, this 16,700+ post compendium, was not even visible on the time line. And probably not even in the minds of the bandwagoneers. Some member or members did mention 10,000, maybe. But going beyond that, then crossing the 15,000 mark, and still continue to merrily chug along – probably that thought did not even cross anyone’s mind. The ambience has changed so much since those days 10 years ago. Now, the feeling is that nothing is impossible for this bandwagon and its fearless leader.

It was a dhamaaka celebration. A celebration that store the hearts of everyone – literally. The blog ne loot liya mil ke gaana sun’ne waalon ko. . .

It was a calculated and a planned choice – the song I mean. Lyrics from the pen of Shewan Rizvi, music composed by Bulo C Rani and rendered with such zest and fervor by Ismail Azaad Qawwaal. And on screen, a name that we had some hard time digging up and confirming – Sheikh, the comedian. Yes, the qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne”. The qawwali that merits to be counted amongs the top 5 iconic qawaalis in Hindi films. That was the choice for the 5000th milestone song for the blog. The write up that day was a shared effort by Atul ji, Raja ji and yours truly. It truly is an honor to be part of that write up.

Ten years later, as we look back, it surely is a major joy that we picked this song for the 5000th milestone.

Now let’s play the numbers game for the week that was – from 7th to 13th November. A whopping 50 songs were posted that week, for an average of little above 7 songs per day. Quite a prolific week that was. Total number films showcased were 43. The film ‘Khel’ of 1950 made four appearances, the film ‘Mayur Pankh’ of 1956 made 3 appearances and ‘Anurodh’ from 1977 made two. The film name ‘Taqdeer’ appeared twice in that week, albeit from different years – 1943 and 1967.

The decade of 1941-50 was represented by 11 songs, the decade of 1951-60 by 12 songs, the decade of 1961-70 by 17 songs, the decade of 1971-80 by eight songs, and the 80s and 90s were represented by one song each. And so 1960s was the prominent decade with almost 30% songs posted that week.

As many as 13 films made their debut this week, and yes, 3 films also got Yippeee’d already. All three films are from 1970s – ‘Amar Prem’ (1971), ‘Mili’ (1975) and ‘Anurodh’ (1977). Since that week was done, 18 more films that appeared in that week are Yippeee’d by now.

We had two major artist milestone also come up that week. Hasrat Jaipuri completed 300 appearances on the blog, on 12th November with the song “Tu Kyun Mujhko Pukaare” from the film ‘Mayur Pankh’. And then on the 13th, the 5000th post also celebrated the century of songs composed by Bulo C Rani.

Here is the week’s data in table form.

Since 13th November of 2011, after this iconic qawwaali was posted, just one more song from the film ‘Al Hi Lal’ has appeared on the blog. That song is “Amma Main Bada Hoke Bahut Kaam Karoongaa” which appeared on the blog on 29th July, 2017. Here is one more song from this film – a duet sung by Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur. This is a lilting melodious song af a lovers’ tete-a-tete – a typical running-around-the-tree love song. On screen, this song is lip synced by Mahipal and Shakila.

The song is written by Shewan Rizvi, music composed by Bulo C Rani. The lovers are complaining about stolen hearts, and are naming each other as the thief responsible for it. Apparently it seems that once the qawwaali became the big hit that it is, somehow the remaining songs got very little attention from the listeners. This song is a wonderful one in its own right, but not so well known. I too got to hear it for the first time as I was searching for other songs of this film.

Listen to this lovely duet, I am sure you will like it.

 

Song – Tum Ho Dil Ke Chor, Kare Dil Shor  (Al Hi Laal) (1958) Singer – Manna Dey, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Shewan Rizvi, MD – Bulo C Rani
Manna Dey + Suman Kalyanpur

Lyrics

tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya. . .
o ho ho haan
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

aa haan
tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

bedard ne deke dard
kiya dil sard
nigaahen pher ke
teri chaah ne
dil ki aah ne loota
raah mein hamko gher ke
laakh bachaaya
bach nahin paaya
dil ye hamaara
tum par aaya
o ho ho haan
tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

o mast nazar
jaata hai kidhar
ik teer sa dil pe maar ke
badnaam na ho
badnaam na kar
ilzaam na de bekaar ke
raaz hamaara
tu ne jaana
jaan na le
bedard zamaana
o ho ho haan
tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

sharma ke na ja
tadpa ke na ja
iqraar to kar le pyaar ka
jab aankh jhuke
aur lab na hiley
ye matlab hai iqraar ka
neechi nigaahen
dil ki kahaani
pyaar ki hai ye
khaas nishaani
o ho ho haan
tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया॰ ॰ ॰
ओ हो हो हाँ
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

आ हाँ
तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

बेदर्द ने देके दर्द
किया दिल सर्द
निगाहें फेर के
तेरी चाह ने
दिल की आह ने लूटा
राह में हमको घेर के
लाख बचाया
बच नहीं पाया
दिल ये हमारा
तुम पे आया
ओ हो हो हाँ
तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

ओ मस्त नज़र
जाता है किधर
इक तीर सा दिल पे मार के
बदनाम ना हो
बदनाम ना कर
इल्ज़ाम ना दे बेकार के
राज़ हमारा
तू ने जाना
जान ना ले
बेदर्द ज़माना
ओ हो हो हाँ
तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

शर्मा के ना जा
तड़पा के ना जा
इक़रार तो कर ले प्यार का
जब आँख झुके
और लब ना हिले
ये मतलब है इक़रार का
नीची निगाहें
दिल की कहानी
प्यार की है ये
खास निशानी
ओ हो हो हाँ
तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

Song-Ye jee chaahta hai kisi din main teri (Amar Deep)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

ye jee chahata hai kisi din main teri
nigaahon ki saari udaasi chura loon
agar ho ijaajat
agar ho inaayat
tere gham ko main apni kismat bana loon
ye jee chaahta hai

kidhar ja raha hai mohabbat ke raahi
kidhar ja raha hai mohabbat ke raahi
idhar dekh manzil teri mera dil hai
idhar dekh manzil teri mera dil hai
tujhe kya khabar hai
ye dil tera ghar hai
tu chaahe to is dil mein tujhko chhupa loon
ye jee chaahta hai

ajab ye safar hai teri zindagi ka
ajab ye safar hai teri zindagi ka
ke hai har kadam par andhera andhera
ke hai har kadam par andhera andhera
jo teri khushi ho to raaho mein teri
amar deep main apne dil ka jala loon
ye jee chaahta hai kisi din main teri
nigaaho ki saari udaasi chura loon
ye jee chaahta hai

Vyjyanti Mala was the lead actor in the movie with Dev Anand and so this song has to be pictuurised on them. But I have my doubts about the identity of the lady. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lady.


Song-Kisi din zara dekh mera bhi ho ke (Amar Deep)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
aur dard se majboor
o o o o
kyun phir bhi nahin meri mohabbat tujhe manzoor

kisi din zara dekh mera bhi hoke
kisi din zara dekh mera bhi hoke
kahaan tak diye jaayega dil ko dhokhe
kahaan tak diye jaayega dil ko dhokhe
kisi din zara dekh mera bhi hoke
kisi din zara

wo aaraam jiski zaroorat hai tujhko
zaroorat hai tujhko
wo aaraam jiski zaroorat hai tujhko
zaroorat hai tujhko
milega tujhe
ho milega tujhe meri baahon mein khoke
kisi din zara dekh mera bhi hoke
kisi din zara

tera dil hi khud tera dushman hai warna
tera dil hi khud tera dushman hai warna
tujhe muskuraane se kyun koi roke
kahaan tak diye jaayega dil ko dhokhe
kisi din zara dekh mera bhi hoke
kisi din zara

mere iltiza hai sama bhi ja inmein
ho sama bhi ja inmein
mere iltiza hai sama bhi ja inmein
khule hain in aankhon ke kab se jharokhe
kisi din zara dekh mera bhi hoke
kisi din zara
