Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 4
———————————–————––——————————————–————
Chaudhvin ka chaand ho
Ya aaftaab ho….
Jo bhi ho tum khudaa ki qasam
Lajawaab ho…oo….ooo

This time it is the turn of Music director who is known as the creator of iconic songs, popularly known as Ravi. His association with Rafi sahab begins in 1956-57 with the first film “Ek Saal” with 2 solo songs written by Prem Dhawan. Many of these iconic songs composed by Ravi were sung by Rafi sahab in this long association which ended only with the demise of Rafi Sahab in 1980. I counted 251 songs composed by Ravi in the excel sheet of Rafi sahab songs. Around 200 of these songs are upto late 60’s. In the 70’s Rafi sahab’s output has as it is decreased so it is not surprising that the 70’s decade there are less than 50 songs by the team of Mohammed Rafi-Ravi, with various lyricists.

Starting from 1957, there are around 50 songs upto 1960. So the 60’s decade is the most productive one with around 150 songs. This, despite Ravi being at the peak of his career working extensively with the B.R. Chopra camp. There are clear indications that Ravi preferred to have Rafi sahab sing his songs whenever he was working outside the BR camp, when he had Mahendra Kapoor sing most of his songs.

The very summit of this association is the legendary solo of Chaudhvin ka chaand(1960). The film has 5 Rafi solo numbers, all of them popular songs, all the places that I saw. But the excel sheet is listing one additional song with the words “yehan ke dost ba-wafa”, so there is a possibility of a small snippet of rendition of some poetry maybe lying hidden in the movie. The story really does take off from here with 7 songs in ‘Tu nahin aur Sahi’ (1960). Then comes the sonorous Husn waale tera jawaab nahin in Gharana (1961). With 6 songs in “China Town” 1962, Rafi has become the only male singer for Ravi in all ‘AA’ and ‘AB’ grade movies which had ‘AAA’ grade music. Rafi sahab went on to croon these outstanding solos/duet for Sunil Dutt in the film “Aaj aur kal” (1963) composed by Ravi:

mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main
Ye aadiyaan ye fizaayen bulaa rahi hain tumhen
itni haseen itni jaaan raat kya karen

In 1963 Ravi had Rafi sahab sing 5 songs each in Bharosa, Pyar ka Bandhan and Grihasti, on Mehmood, Guru Dutt, Raj Kumar Johnny Walker and Manoj Kumar. It is most likely that there were no other male playback singers in the credits of these movies too. This is apart from the 7 songs including 4 solos in ‘Pyar Kiya to Darna kya” for Aagha and Shammi Kapoor. 1963 also saw the song Sau baar janam lenge in the film “Ustadon ke Ustaad”.

Here is a list of 4 of the popular and unique, of the 7 Rafi songs in the film “Door ki Aawaaz”:

Song Singers
Ham bhi agar bachche hote Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle
Husn se chaand bhi sharmaayaa hai Mohd Rafi
Kyaa yoonhi rooth ke jaane ko muhabbat ki thhi Mohd Rafi
Muqaddar aazmaanaa chaahtaa hoon Mohd Rafi

Shakeel Badayuni seems to have formed a newer equation with Ravi post “Chaudhvi ka Chaand” going by the no. of films I am finding in the Rafi list where they worked together.

Rafi-Ravi combination moved on to Shehnai in 1964 with 4 solos and 1 duet, in a Rafi-Asha score, with one melodious solo for Asha Is tarah todaa mera dil .

“Khandaan” 1965 again was again an all-Rafi score with 6 songs, 7th being the iconic Lata solo Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri poojaa tumhi devtaa ho .

I simply must list the iconic solos by Rafi sahab in Do Badan(1966):

Song Singers
Bhari duniyaa mein aakhir dil ko samjhaane kahaan jaayen Mohd Rafi
Is Jahan Se (Verse) Mohd Rafi
Naseeb mein jiske jo likhaa thaa Mohd Rafi
Rahaa gardishon mein hardam Mohd Rafi

There is a bonus in this film also with additional verse “is jahan se’, we can look forward to finding and enjoying.

In 1967, there were ‘Meherbaan’ and “Nai Roshni” followed with “Do Kaliyan” and ‘Neel Kamal’ in 1968. Do I really need to list the songs of ‘Neel Kamal”? I dont think so. “Neel Kamal” atleast had a Manna Dey song on Mehmood Khaali dabba khaali bottle lele mere yaar .

This is 1969 and Ek phool do mali:

Song Singers
Aulaad waalon phoolo phalo Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
Chal chal re naujawaan-parody song Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
O nanhe se farishte Mohd Rafi
Ye parda hata do Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle

They reach early 70’s to create these two meaningful songs:

Song Movie (year) Singers MD Lyricist
Mujhe ishq hai tujhi se meri jaan e zindagaani Ummeed(1971) Mohd Rafi Ravi Shakeel Badayuni
Mere Dost Tujhe Tera Meet Mubarak Dhadkan(1972) Mohd Rafi Ravi Ravi & Ali

We must go back to the early years of Rafi-Ravi association to reach “Mehendi’ 1958. This is a recital by Rafi sahab of a poetry titled ‘Baazaar-e-husn’ by Kaamil Rashid. Ajit is reciting this nazm in the movie on a Kotha, presumably of Umrao Jaan. This movie Mahendi 1958 was based on a novel “Umrao Jaan Ada” (1904) authored by Mirza Hadi Ruswa. The other two movies named “Umrao Jaan’ were based on the same novel. This is an affirmation of the feeling I had, that it must be based on a novel, while watching ‘Umrao Jaan’ 1981.

This recital is another great rendition, without music, reminding me of the rendition of Unhen qissa e gham jo likhne ko baithhe in ‘Naya Qanoon’(1965) and Kya gham jo andheri hain raaten in ‘Barsaat ki raat’ (1960).

In the movie, this recital happens, then the reply by ‘Umrao Jaan’ in Lata Mangehskar’s voice is posted here bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin. The recital on screen is by an actor named Jayshree, whose identity is not clear. I have seen the posted songs of the film to find if this is the veteran Marathi film actress Jayshree Gadkar. The film’s poster by SaReGaMa has Jayshree Gadkar on it. She has been seen in a few hindi films in later years like “Bahaaron ke Sapne’1967. But there is a question mark if it is the same actor in Mehendi(1958). The cast of the film is Jayashree, Ajit, Veena, Kumar, Baalam, Mirza Musharraf, Lalita Pawar, Baby Devika, Adib, Ismail, Prakash, Jago, Maqbool, Krishnakant, Munshi Munakka, Hamid – I, Dinanath, Anwari Bai, Qaisarbai, & Mumtaz Begum.

These four songs of the film are posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Apne kiye pe koyi pashemaan ho gayaa 21 december 2009
Bedard zamaana tera dushman hai 26 december 2009
Pyaar ki duniya lutegi hamen maaloom na thhaa 11 may 2012
Bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin 22 may 2012

I had come accross long-time back and all these years I was under the impression that there is this song by Rafi, a recital filmed on Ajit, and it is already posted. Then last month I found this song and saved the link for having it in this series, as it was not posted. For last two weeks, I have not worked on any posts, but it was there on the back of the mind, that some of these wonderful songs are saved in my drafts and I need to get on with it. Finally, yesterday I opened the laptop, with this very song on the mind, and lo, there it was in one of the comments that the recital is not posted.
The question/grievance/complaint is here now, the answer to it was here already.
Editor’s note:-This song is the 500th song from movies of 1958 to appear in the blog.

Lyrics

aisi julmi najariya se dekho nahin raja

aisi julmi najariya se dekho nahin raja
maine pyaar kiya

kabhi dil ki nagariya mein piya more aaja
maine pyaar kiya

chamke jab aakash pe chanda

yaad teri tadpaaye
mere nainon mein sapnon ki kaliyaan khilaa ja
maine pyaar kiya
koi chori nahin
maine pyaar kiya

What a wonderful song to listen to. It is a song which is bound to cheer the listners up with its positive message.

Song-Duniya ke anyaayion anyaay ki hoti khair nahin (Baalyogi Upmanyu)(1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

duniya ke anyaayiyon
duniya ke anyaayion
anyaay ki hoti khair nahin

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Sachche Ka Bol Baala-1958’. This movie had made its debut on the blog on 15.12.2013 with its song ‘gorey gaal pe til kaala kaala’. For nearly seven years, thi remained the only song from this movie in the blog.

Today we are adding one more song from this movie. this sog isa duet song like the first one. It is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle.

‘Sachche Ka Bol Baalaa-1958’ was directed by Bhagwan for ‘Unity Films, Madras’. It was produced by Brijmohan. It had Kum Kum, Chandrashekhar, Bhagwan, Radhika, Leela Gandhi, Kukku, Protima Devi, Jeevankala, Baburao, Shyam Kumar, Ramlal, Jani, Shukla, Kesri and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.12.1958. So, this movie will also become sixty-two years old within few weeks now.

This movie had eight songs. They were written by Saba Afghaani and composed by Nisar.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie as mentioned in the footnote in HFGK. However, the list of songs of this movie as given in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) does not mention singers for all eight songs but it mentions the singers’ name for only four songs as given below;

I have actively looked songs on ‘dheere dheere’ theme and have found a few good songs from 50’s decade. In this process, I found many songs which suit this theme and are already posted, apart from some famous songs which I had listed in an earlier post of this series.

Here is the list :

Song Movie
Ho dheere dheere chadh gaya nadi mein paani Aagosh
Dheere dheere bol Actress
Dheere dheere aare baadal Kismat
Dheere dheere dhal ri chanda Angulimaal
Saawan ki ghataaon dheere dheere aana Aage Badho
Mora dheere se ghoonghat hataaye piya Bharthari
Dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi Bhai Bahan

I have searched for songs with the words ‘dheere dheere’ in the first line of the mukhda. If I found especially appealing songs with the words ‘aahista aahista’ or ‘dheeme dheeme’ or ‘haule haule’ I have included them in the series, as these terms also mean the same in spirit at least, if not the dialect. Then there are some songs with the words ‘halka halka’ also, but I have considered them so far as the words ‘halka halka’ imply ‘mildness’, diverse from ‘dheere dheere’ or ‘aahista aahistaa’.

Present post in the series is for this female solo song from Piya Milan(1958). P Ramesh Naidu, is the music director of this film and Lyricist is Harsh. Myswar is not giving singers name for this song, whereas the singer’s names are given for all other songs. Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and P. Susheela are credited with the other songs.

Three songs from ‘Piya Milan’1958 are posted :

Song Date of posting
O saathi re tu aa bhi jaa 18 June 2013
Kya kya kahoon re Kaanha 3 February 2016
Yaad aa ke hardam sataaye 24 May 2018

Here is blog tally for both P. Ramesh Naidu and Harsh :

Artist Songs in the blog
P Ramesh Naidu 5
Harsh 6

The name of the singer is not available, only thing I can say for sure is it is not Lata Mangeshkar’s voice, having heard it umpteen times for getting the lyrics right. At times it sounds a bit like Usha Mangeshkar, but it can also be P. Susheela, whose voice I don’t recognize.

The song is quite catchy, with a nice tune, though the sound quality is poor. May be Prakashchandra ji will find some audio link with better sound.


Song-Pawan chali dheere dheere phool khile re (Piya Milan) (1958) Singer-Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Harsh, MD-P Ramesh Naidu

Lyrics

Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re
haan haan
phool khile re
kaise phool khile re
bhanwar uss ko dekh
naachh uthhaa
gale mila re
lo ji
gale mila re
dil se nikle ??
Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re

man ka mera hai tu raajaa aa
man ka mera hai tu raajaa aa
hai mujhe tu pasand
kar loon aankhon mein band

man ka mera hai tu raajaa
hai mujhe tu pasand
kar loon aankhon mein band
aaj mujhe
prem milan ki hai bekhudi
aa aaa
aaj mujhe se
man man kyun hai bekhudi
dil mein rehna sanam
dil mein rehna sanam
o ji o
de qasam
? ?
Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 87
———————————————————————————–

Welcome all to the ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge’ series where today we will have a song after a gap of almost a month. Last song posted under the ‘challenge’ was on 25.09.2020.

We missed some opportunities, but today hopefully we will have two songs in this challenge.

If we see the songs posted ten years back on this day (20.10.2010), we had only three posts on that day as given below;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Aaj mere naseeb ne mujhko rulaa rulaa diyaa Halchal-1951 All songs covered
Bhajan binaa baawre Rooplekha-1962 03 songs posted
Ham to muhabaat karegaa Dilli Ka Thug-1958 05 songs posted

So, one can see that the rate of posting had come down to averaging three posts a day unlike what it was during August’2010 and Septemeber’2010 where we saw the blog maintaining average six posts per day.

In this current month of October’2020 so far we have seen forty-seven posts till 19.10.2020 (i.e. averaging just little over two posts per day).

So, I was curious to check how the blog had been doing in the month of ‘October’ till now and here we have the details;

SNo. Month-Year Total no of posts Average per day
01 Oct’2008 76 2.45
02 Oct’2009 100 3.22
03 Oct’2010 109 3.52
04 Oct’2011 191 6.16
05 Oct’2012 168 5.42
06 Oct’2013 122 3.93
07 Oct’2014 108 3.48
08 Oct’2015 82 2.64
09 Oct’2016 93 3.00
10 Oct’2017 64 2.06
11 Oct’2018 61 1.97
12 Oct’2019 43 1.38

We can from the above details that in the current month the blog is still maintaining a better ‘run-rate’ (post-rate 😊) and we yesterday it saw as many as five posts occurring over the day.

Coming back to the today’s movies, today we have two movies viz. “Dilli Ka Thug-1958” and “Rooplekha-1962” eligible for posting a song under the ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge-2010-2020’

I am presenting a song from ‘Dilli Ka Thug-1958’.

This movie was directed by S.D. Narang for ‘New Oriental Pictures, Bombay’.

It had Kishore Kumar, Nutan, Smriti Biswas, Amar, Madan Puri, Iftekhar, Krishnakant, Protima Devi, Ramlal, Mirajkar, Kathana, Amrit Rana, Heera, Kumud Tripathi, Shakuntala, Master Raj, Tun Tun, Ratan Gaurang, Bela Parmanik, Haroon, A.K. Tiwari, Tamoa, Madan Khanna, Nirula, Rajkumar, P. Mukherjee, Brahm Bharadwaj, Tanveer, Uma Dutt, Mouji and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.11.1958. The movie was again re-certified with some parts of the movie in colours on 15.09.1959.

This movie had total eight songs composed by Ravi written by three lyricists Shailendra, S.H. Bihari and Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Let us have a look (this time a little differently) on this movies’ songs as they appear on the movie page in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) which generally are in order of their appearance on the screen as mentioned in HFGK.
The songs posted so far have been given with their links and the lyricist for each song and its date of posting (wherever the song is posted on the blog) is also given.

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 19

29/09/2020 – 88th birth anniversary of Mehmood
—————————————————————
Mehmood Ali (29 September 1932 – 23 July 2004), popularly known simply as Mehmood, was an Indian actor, writer, singer, director and producer best known for playing comic roles in Hindi films. Today we are celebrating his 88th birth anniversary. Only other person I can think of with so many talents is Kishore Kumar. Even that I am not sure if, Kishore Kumar ever wrote any film stories though he is credited as a song writer, I think.

A veteran of 300 films, he can be called India’s national comedian, some may differ. But to differ is everyone’s not so basic right. The premise for calling him the national comedian are many, one of them could be this fact that he has 25 filmfare nominations. That amounts to at least one nomination every year from 1954 onwards. It is not so straight forward. As per information given on Wikipedia, the award for Best performance in a comic role started only in 1967. So Mehmood was nominated for Best supporting actor 6 times between 1954 and 1966. Rest of the nineteen nominations could be in continuation up to 1985. By late 70’s Mehmood significance as a comedien or a need for a comedien in films had diminished. From late 70’s the comic character as well as a Vamp/dancer character were diminishing, as the heroes and heroine’s usurped them. For a while there, a thought struck that, if they could they would have done away with playback singers too, if they could. Than playback singers also would have been out of the work force as well with the defunct comic actor and dancer/vamp starlets. Fanciful thoughts these.

If the ‘Best performance in a comic role’ is initiated as late as 1967, many like Agha, Bhagwan and Johnny Walker missed out on them. In the 90’s we did see, some heroes nominated for “Best performance in a Negative role”, “ Best performance in a comic role” etc.

Back to Mehmood who started his career as a child artist, in “Qismat” 1943. He produced a number of films, story of some of them like ‘Ek baap chhe bête”,’Bhoot Bangla” “Safed ghoda kaala sawaar” & “ Janta Hawaldar”. So this was a talented and multi-faceted personalty. Many memorable character and comedy with a twist of tragedy roles assessed by Mehmood are too many to list. The youngest brother of ‘Beti-Bete”, the international faqeer in ‘Aankhen”, the kabaadiwala son in law in ‘Neel Kamal”, to the madrasi music teacher in “Padosan”, to the recalcitrant son to Om Prakash who has a passion for filmmaking in “Pyaar kiye jaa”, and the kaala, dilwala in “Gumnaam”. The difference from other comic actors and Mehmood is the versatility of his talents, and he was usually accompanied by a love interest in the films. There was a parallel story going on with these comic actors, side by side with the main story. Even in the not so run of the mill films, this was a regular thing. And songs to sing is a foregone conclusion, romantic or comic.

After a few lack luster recent post, I have made some special efforts here in this posts, to make some observations of my own. It may be the 50’s Rafi song, which brings this out of me. I had begun to feel jaded and incinerated, with so many 80’s and 90’s , even 70’s songs I have written the posts for recently.

It feels good to go back to the 50’s. The song in question is from “Mr. Qartoon MA”(1958). Rafi Sahab is singing here for both Mehmood and Johnny Walker. Johny Walker and Mehmood are disguised as sadhu’s and singing this song on the street, in front of their love interest’s hostel or house. The song is special for being a comic song, roadside tamasha song, sadhu’s song, disguise song etc etc. The music director for this film O. P. Nayyar and surprisingly lyricist is Hasrat Jaipuri, on his rare picnic outside the Shankar-Jaikshan. Not that anyone is complaining, if it gives us songs like ‘Tere Ghar Ke saamne” when Hasrat Jaipuri ventured out of the foursome fold.

I have had the fortune of posting a few O. P. Nayyar songs in the distant past, but before this post cannot recall any songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri, for which I have written a post. Also the posts for Shankar-Jaikishan songs, are rare ones for me.

The audio and film version are slightly different in this song. Audio is shorter than the film version and a line in the mukhda which is repeated is changed as “ab hari om”.

These four songs from this film are already posted in the blog:

Chanda chaley jhoom ke baadarwa ko choom ke
Dil tera deewaana o mastaani bulbul
Main main main main cartoon Multiple part song
Mera dil ghabraaye meri aankh sharmaaye

This is song no. 19 in series of Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II), also a tribute for Mehmood. I don’t want to repeat my earlier requests for having a separate category tag for ‘Mehmood” song. I see that there is one such tag for Johny walker song. The is a need for ‘Agha song” also for that matter. Many all-time classic songs are sung onscreen by these comic actors.

This Week, That Year – 4
———————————–
20Sep – 26Sep, 2010

Post by post analysis of the weekly output – is an exercise that is getting more involved and detailed. As we progress, we are finding newer varieties and newer variations that add on to a now growing list of things to look at and check for. OK, so let us see what insight this week brings in.

Let’s first do the numbers. The challenge analysis and other details are presented in the table below. With one dot day (on 23rd Sep), this week saw as many as 34 posts. Except for one repeat, all songs are from different movies. So, 33 movies got featured that week. As many as 12 films made their debut. And of the 33 films that were showcased that week, 22 films have been yippeee’d over the past 10 years. Of the remaining 11, I am shifting two film to the twilight zone of Conditional Yippeee status, which I had proposed last week. The films are ‘Panchaayat’ from 1958 and ‘Dr Vidya’ from 1962 – I will give more details little later in write up.

Last week I had proposed that for the songs which are listed for the film, but which are possibly not available in any format, will be denoted by ‘LFe’ – short for ‘Lost Forever’. Now there is a rethink about this terminology. At least one response to me was that ‘Lost Forever’ is a despairing notation, putting a sort of finality to the issue. So I propose to change this terminology to ‘UT’ indicating that the song is ‘Untraceable’ at least for now.

Two major milestones were announced this week. With the sixth song posted on 20th Sep, 2010, the blog reached the 3000th post. Given where we were at that time, ten years back, this was an enviable milestone in itself. Looking back, it may seem not very significant, on account of where we have now reached. But at that time, breaching the 3000 barrier was a great event. With the same song, we also had the first 1000th milestone for an individual artist. This very same song also became the 1000th song by Lata ji, posted on our blog. This was the first such accomplishment on the blog, for an artist.

We had just one guest post this week. Raja ji has done the post for the 3000th song plus the 1000th song of Lata Mangeshkar.

This week, we see many interesting variations and differences in the information that is available about the songs contained in specific films. Here are the details,

  1. ‘Deewaana’ (1952) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. Then the footnote to this film indicates that one more song was recorded for this film in the voice of Shamshad Begum. The inference to be drawn is that this 9th song is an unused song from this film. This song is also available, and has been posted on our blog.
  2. ‘Panchaayat’ (1958) – the gap in information is quite remarkable here. There is one song listed in Geet Kosh that is simply not traceable anywhere. The words of the song are “Main Ye Soch Kar Us Ke Dar Se Utha Tha”. Ah yes, rings a bell. This song appears in the 1964 film ‘Haqeeqat’. I replayed the movie to check, but did not find even a snippet of this song.
    However, viewing the film gave me some good information. The theme song of this film, “Mil Ke Baitho Jodo Bandhan” is a multi part song that appears in the film five times. We have this song on the blog, but we only have the portion that is heard in background as the film titles are being presented on screen. This song recurs on four more occasions later in the film.
    So two updates to this film that must be put on the blog. First, the theme song has to be updated for all the multi part segments. Second, then this film should be declared Conditional Yippeee, because the song “Main Ye Soch Kar. . .”, in all likelihood will remain untraceable, as far as this film is concerned.
  3. ‘Parwaana’ (1947) – Geet Kosh lists 9 songs, whereas we on the blog had added two more which we have extracted from the film soundtrack. One of them – “Balam To Pe Sabar Pade” is a very special song. This is the very last recording of KL Saigal Sb. It is an incomplete recording. However, the director has used this as a background song near the end of the film, by modifying the situations somewhat.
  4. ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs, whereas in the film there is one more song, actually a qawwaali, in the voice of Shamshad Begum and Usha Mangeshkar. So on the blog, we have one more song than the list in Geet Kosh.
  5. ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960) – On the blog we have one additional song, actually a snippet that is played at the end of the film. This snippet is not listed in the Geet Kosh.
  6. ‘Dr Vidya’ (1962) – This song list mismatch here is quite confusing. There are seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, out of which the song a serial no. 2 “Yahi Din Hain Bhanware Mann Arey Tum Nahin Samajhte” is not traceable. It does not appear to match with any other song in the film. And then there are two songs in the film which are not listed in the Geet Kosh. There is a fun qawwaali – “Yoon Hans Hans Kar Dekho Na Idhar”, which is performed on screen by Helen and Prem Chopra. And then there is this romantic song of promises to meet again – “Main Kal Phir Miloongi Isi Gulsitaan Mein”. So we have 8 songs of this film already posted, and there is one still pending whose fate is not known. Possibly then ‘Dr Vidya’ also merits to declared Conditional Yippeee.
  7. ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1958) – This film has 8 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. However, on our blog, we have one more additional song posted, which is essentially a poem rendition.
  8. ‘Doctor’ (1941) – I had mentioned about this film in the previous episode of this series. There is a small bit of confusion in the song list of this film in the Geet Kosh. GK lists 11 songs for this film. This film was declared as Yippeee’d on 29th August, 2014. In that post, Atul ji had written that ten songs of this film are already posted, and the eleventh song was being posted, declaring this film to be Yippeee’d. However, as we examine the lists, there is a bit of confusion that prevails overall.
    For starters, the song “Aai Nit Nai Rut Ki Bahaar” is listed twice in GK, once with Ila Ghosh as the singer, and once with Pankaj Mullick as the singer. This threw me off so completely, that I spent three four days two weeks ago, trying to trace the Pankaj Babu version of this song. Most responses I got from within the circle of collector friends was that this song does not exist. Secondly, the iconic Pankaj Babu song – “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar” is not listed in GK. I went over the GK entries in detail, including the addenda and the corrigenda. But could locate no other information.
    After some back and forth discussions, it is concluded that there is an error in the GK listings, in that the song listed in GK at serial no. 11 – “Aayi Nit Nari Rut Ki Bahaar” in the voice of Pankaj Babu, is incorrect, and that the words of this song should be “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar”. If this change is made, then the listings can be reconciled correctly.
    There is still one more variation in the GK listing and the blog list. The GK listing shows the two songs viz. “Kab Tak Niraasha Ki Andhiyaari” and “Bhai Jagat Ujiyaari Dekho” as two separate songs. On our blog, these two songs appear in the same post, so essentially the blog list does not show the latter song.

Now a word about the song covered in this post. The film is ‘Zindagi Ya Toofaan’ from 1958. As per the Geet Kosh, this film has 10 songs listed. All the songs come from the pen of J Nakshab, a name that we are also familiar as Nakshab Jarchavi. Music is composed by Nashaad.

The film is produced under the banner of Serafim Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Nakshab Jarchavi, the lyricist. The cast of actors is briefly given as Nutan, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Minoo Mumtaz, Johnny Walker, and Yakub. The film tells the story about the love of a young man, role played by Pradeep Kumar, for a dancing girl, role played by Nutan. Nine songs of this film are already posted here on our blog. This is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board.

The song itself is a wonderful expression in words about the exchanges that happen between the lover and the beloved. Each couplet, each line is such a beautiful visualization of that relationship. The video clip for this song could not be located. So it is not feasible to comment on the picturization of this song. Given the music and rendition, one can surmise that this song is presented as a mujra on screen. Expectedly, the song is performed by Nutan and Minoo Mumtaz. Both are dancing girls entertaining the guests, which would include Praeep Kumar and Yakub.

This wonderful ghazal presented as a mujra, is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board, and we can declare this film to be Yippeee’d now.

क्या क्या निगाह ए शौक लुटी है हया के हा॰॰आथ
आsss आsss आssssss
ये क्या हुआ के रुक गए सीने तक आ के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

आsss आsss
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
अफ़साना ग़ैर का वो समझ कर सुना किये
अफ़साना ग़ैर का वो समझ कर सुना किये
आया जो मेरा नाम
तो बस उठ के चल दिये
झुँझला के तैश खा के बिगड़ के छुड़ा के हाथ
झुँझला के तैश खा के बिगड़ के छुड़ा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
बेकल हुये तो रेह गया सब बांकपन पड़ा
बेकल हुये तो रेह गया सब बांकपन पड़ा
शिकवों का जब जवाब ना कुछ उनसे बन पड़ा
शिकवों का जब जवाब ना कुछ उनसे बन पड़ा
गर्दन में मेरी डाल दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
गर्दन में मेरी डाल दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

आss आss आsss आssss
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
नक़शब को किस अदा से इनायत किया था जाम
नक़शब को किस अदा से इनायत किया था जाम
आss आssss
देना किसी का साग़र ए मय याद है निज़ाम
देना किसी का साग़र ए मय याद है निज़ाम
मुंह फेर कर उधर को इधर को बढ़ा के हाथ
मुंह फेर कर उधर को इधर को बढ़ा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ

“Son of Sindbad” and “Daughter of Sindbad” were both released in 1958. So it seems to me that they were twins. 🙂

“Daughter of Sindbad”(1958) was directed by Ratilal for Starland Productions movie, Bombay. The movie had Jairaj, Nadira, Pran, Maruti, Tiwari, Kamal Kapoor etc in it. The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Daughter of Sindbad”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi , Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Anjum Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta. Incidentally, Chitragupta was the music director in “Son of Sindbad” (1958) as well.

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


Song-Lahar chup hai hawa chup hai (Daughter of Sindbad)(1958) Singers-Rafi, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Anjum Jaipuri, MD-Chitragupta
Chorus

Lyrics

lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
rawaan hai kaarvaan apna

nahin hai naakhuda koi
khuda hai paasbaan apna
lahar chup hai
hawa chup hai lahar chup hai
hawa chup hai

jahaan bhi hum gaye
apni khushi ke geet gaaye hain
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

tareeke hamne jeene ke
zamaane ko sikhaaye hain
mohabbat ki kahaani hai
ye lahraata nishaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
rawaan hai kaarvaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai

kabhi toofaan se khele hain
kabhi lehron pe machle hain
kabhi toofaan se khele hain
kabhi lehron pe machle hain
sahaara leke himmat ka
hawa ke rukh bhi badle hain
hazaaron baar duniya ne ki(?) hai imteha apna

lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
ravaan hai kaarvaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai

khuda ki raah mein
duniyaa ki daulat deke jaate hain
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

safeena ab usi ke aasre pe
leke jaate hain
wo hi maalik hai duniya ka
wo hi hai mehrbaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
rawaan hai kaarvaan apna

nahin hai naakhuda koi
khuda hai paasbaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
