Hullo Atuldom

This post is thanks to the morning programs aired by Radio Ceylon (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) and Prasar Bharati’s Vividh Bharati.

The first song that I heard this morning was from the 1967 Bharat Bhushan starrer “Taqdeer”; a song from “Gateway Of India” (1957) was just over. And Jyoti Parmarji announced that the segment was a tribute to yesteryear actor Bharat Bhushan (14th June 1920- 27th January 1992).

The next segment played songs from “Thokar” (1953), Taxi 555 (1958), “Saaranga” (1960) etc; and Jyotiji said that the segment was remembering Sardar Malik (13th January 1930- 27th January 2006).

I am sure if I had listened further, I would have heard some lovely songs of Zia Sarhadi Sahab (1917- 27th January 1997). This youtube link will give us the songs played in that segment.

Then around 9.30 a.m. I switched on to Vividh Bharati and I landed on their “aaj ke fankaar” and I discovered that today is LOIN’s birth anniversary too.

So many yesteryear populars’ anniversaries. So I set out on my favourite activity- trying to find a movie or song featuring at least two of those who are being remebered today. And I had my EUREKAAA!!!! moment sometime back.

Today we are having a song sung by Mohd. Rafi, written by Madan Mohan (not the music director, please note) & Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and composed by Sardar Malik. It is from the movie “Maa Ke Aansoo” (1959). It was a movie which had Hamid Ali Khan, Nalini Jaywant, Neelam, Lalita Pawar, Agha, Ajit Kumar etc. Dhirubhai Desai was the director and more details about the movie can be had in this post Meri jholi ko bhar de of December 27th, 2011. Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has given a brief about the movie in the comments to the post.

I am sure that it is well-known that Hamid Ali Khan was popular as Ajit. He started as an extra in many of his initial films to feed himself. He changed his name to Ajit on the advise of Nanabhai Bhatt. and played the main protagonist in films till sometime in the 60s when he switched to playing character roles and was most sought after villain in movies of the late 60s and most of the 70s. His character in “Kalicharan” (1976) pompously called himself “LOIN” of course that was his way of pronouncing the word Lion; similarly his “Rabbert” for Robert, “Mona Darling” are all unforgettable.
He would have been 101 today.

Sardar Malik passed away this date in 2006. He was active in Hindi Films from late 1940s and gave music for nearly 600 songs. I could readily recollect all the songs that SLBC played this morning. I just thought I will mention here that his children and grand children are connected with the music industry as singers, music directors etc. I also feel like mentioning that Hasrat Jaipuri was his wife’s brother.

Song-Hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan (Maa Ke Aansoo)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Madan Mohan (lyricist), MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

aandhi mein gunaahon ka diya jal nahin sakta
jo bachke aa pahuncha hai
anjaam tera tere hi haathon mein hai naadaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke fariston se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

maathe se siyaah daag gunaahon ke mita de
gunaahon ke mita de
neki ke diye gham ke andhere mein jala de
andhere mein jala de
do din ki khushi ke liye tu bech na imaan
tu bech na imaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
Allaah ka ye ghar to shaheedon ke liye hai
hai waqt sambhalne ka
sambhal jaa arre naadaaan
sambhal jaa arre naadaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

kya teri duaaon se falak hil nahin sakta
falak hil nahin sakta
is dar se jo tu chaahe to kya mil nahin sakta
to kya mil nahin sakta
thhak jaayega neki se buraayi ka ye toofaan
buraayi ka ye toofaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #
————————————————————————
(A tribute to Bhimsen Joshi)

Today 24th January’2023 is the twelfth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of great vocalist Pandit Bhimsen Joshi.

He was born on 04th February’1922 and passed away on 24th January’2011.

As a tribute to Bhimsen Joshi I am presenting a song from the 1959 Un-released movie ‘Pativrataa’.

Music for this movie was composed by famous music director of Marathi films Ram Kadam.

I was longing to introduce this movie on the blog, though un-released movie it is, because this the fourth and final movie where music director Ram Kadam composed music for Hindi films other than the movies, ‘Raaste Aur Manzil-1968’, ‘Sant Tulsidas-1972’ and ‘Pinjra-1973’(already represented on the blog).

HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) does not mention any details for this movie ‘Pativrataa’ except listing of two songs from this movie in ‘unreleased movies’ section, name of the music director, singers, and production company.

However, since this movie was also made in Marathi (year 1959) I guess the same cast was there in the Hindi movie. I am giving details below herewith of this movie in Marathi.

‘Pativrataa’ was directed by Datta Dharmadhikari for ‘Alhad Chitra’.

Datta Dharmadhikari was also the producer of this movie.

‘Patrivrataa-1959’ (In Marathi) had Sulochana, Chandrakant, Jayshree Gadkar, Suryakant, Vivek, Indirabai Chitnis, Neelam, Damu Anna Malwankar, Vasant Shinde and others.
Raja Nene, Adhik Shirodkar, had guest appearances in this movie. And the movie also had child artistes Amrendra, Chhaya and Pratibha.

Editing of this movie was done by Anand Dharmadhikari.

Bhimsen Joshi, Asha Bhonsle, Lakshami Shankar and Janaki Aiyyar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above music for this movie was composed by Ram Kadam.

Lyricist name for the songs in this movie is not mentioned in HGK Vol-III and also I didn’t find it mentioned in the titles of the ‘Marathi movie-Pativrataa’.

I would request our seniors on this blog and other knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Today’s song is sung by Bhimsen Joshi and Lakshami Shankar and music is composed by Ram Kadam.

Our tributes to Bhimsen Joshi, one of the greatest vocalist of this country, and one of my favorites.

With this song this movie ‘Pativrataa’ makes its debut on the blog.

Today’s song is from a Telugu Language film which was dubbed in Hindi and named as Jaisingh-1959.

Till 1947, Hindi films were made mostly in Bombay,Lahore,Calcutta, Kolhapur and Poona. Most studios were located in these cities. South Indian language films were made mainly in Madras and Bangla films were made in Calcutta and Dhaka. The Partition in 1947 changed the picture completely. Wholesale polarisation took place.Producers of Hindi films had to flee from Lahore,leaving everything behind them and some artistes from Bombay left for Pakistan. Thus, after Partition, the exclusive centre for production of Hindi films was only Bombay. By 1950 things settled in India and Pakistan Film Industry.

Telugu film producers shifted to Hyderabad,Kannada films to Bangalore and Malayalam to Kerala. Madras, however,still made films other than Tamil,like Telugu Hindi etc. But now it was only Remakes of successful Tamil films or dubbed films.The 50s saw many Hindi films dubbed from southern languages(Read Tamil/Telugu). Initially,they were Mythological, Fantasy or costume films. In the 60s,however, even social films were remade.

Film production in Madras is very methodical and professional.They make films as per plans and in planned time.For this reason,in the 60s to 80s many Hindi film actors volunteered to to make films in south.The producers in south too had their favourites. In the Music area, there were, Ravi, C.Ramchandra or Madan Mohan, for lyrics and story, Rajinder krishna and Pradeep, and preferred actors were Jeetendra, Rajendra Kumar, Sunil Dutt and Mehmood.

Though Polarisation took place in film production, the attraction to come to Bombay and work here continued. Artistes from various centres still came to Bombay.
The biggest contribution came from Bengal,in music,direction and acting areas.Artistes from South tried their hand with Hindi films,either by Remade or dubbed films. Thus the greatest south actors like Sivaji Ganeshan,M G Ramchandran ,N T Rama Rao, A.Nageshwar Rao, Jailalita, Janaki, Susheela, Bhanumathi, Prem Nazir of the older generation and Rajanikanth, Kamal Hasan and Chiranjeevi from the next Generation were seen in Hindi films. Only Dr.Rajkumar, the Kannada Superstar never worked in Hindi films. In fact,except for just 1 Telugu film, Shri Kalahasti Mahatmyam-1954, Dr.Rajkumar never worked in any other language film.

In the music department also, many composers like K.Narayan Rao, S.Rajeshwar Rao, C R Subramanyam, E Shankar, R Sudershanam, Ramesh Naidu, Adi Narayanrao, Vishwanath-Rammurthy,Lingappa etc worked in Hindi films.

There was one name from South,which was so famous,but it is surprising that he too gave music to Hindi Films.His name was GHANTASALA.

The major difficulty for southern artistes was speaking in Hindi. Due to this, they hesitated to work in Hindi films and instead, preferred dubbing their hit films in Hindi, released them on All India basis and hoped for becoming famous. Initially, in the period of the 50’s and 60’s decades, there was a spate of dubbed films, as well as some remade films in Hindi. Later on and now of course only hit films are remade in Hindi. The count of dubbed films has gone down considerably. These days, I find that even hit films of Hindi are also remade in southern languages.

The original Telugu film was Jaisimha-1955. It was dubbed in Hindi and released in 1959 as Jai Singh. The cast of the film was Waheeda Rehman, Anjali Devi, N.T.Rama Rao (known popularly as NTR ), S.V.Ranga Rao, Relangi, Gummadi, Kanta Rao Rajnala and others. Waheeda Rehman had acted in this film before coming to Bombay for Hindi films.

The Telugu film was released on the Dussehra day-21st Oct 1955 in Hyderabad.NTR was extremely popular and there was a huge rush on the first day itself.The music of Jayasimha,by T.V.Raju was excellent.There were 10 songs and they were sung by stalwarts like,Jikki,P.Susheela,Ghantasala,P.Leela,R.Balasaraswati Devi,K.Rani,M.S.Rao,P.Nageshwar Rao etc.

The Hindi version has only 8 songs and ALL songs have the same tunes as in Telugu.The Hindi film MD was Ramesh Naidu,ably assisted by S.L.Merchant. The singers were Lata, Geeta, Usha, Manna Dey and P.Susheela ( who has sung 44 songs in Hindi in 20 films). The story of the film was a routine for a Costume film, but it became a hit film in Telugu, because of N.T.Rama Rao. In Hindi, however, it had an average audience.

JAI SINGH-1959 was a dubbed film in Hindi,which came after a 4 years’ gap. I have seen both the Telugu and the Hindi versions. The story was….

Jai singh(NTR) is an orphan Prince of Malwa state,who is brought up lovingly by the wife of the wicked Wazir Rudra Singh(SV Ranga rao).He wants to kill Jaisingh,but jaisingh escapes and reaches Magadh Desh,where he rescues Padmini(Waheeda Rehman),the princess from the robbers.They fall in love.
Jaisingh stays with his loyal but crippled soldier Randhir (Gummadi),whose daughter Kalindi(Anjali Devi)loves Jaisingh,who treats her as his sister.
The king of magadh is imprisoned by the rebels,but Jaisingh rescues him.Then Padmini is kidnapped.Meanwhile Rudra singh sends his senapathi and captures Jaisingh,to kill him.
Kalindi reaches the jail,rescues Jaisingh and dies in the fighting which follows,thus sacrificing her life for her love.
Jaisingh then fights Rudra singh,kills him and then rescues Padmini also.
They get married and live happily thereafter.

The Hero of this film N.T.Rama Rao (NTR) was a very famous and popular actor in the south. NTR founded his production company NAT with an intention to make message oriented movies. Though his first two productions, Pitchi Pullaiah and Thodudongalu won critical appreciation, they left him with a huge monetary loss. A disheartened NTR told his production chief and relative Atluri Pundarikakshaiah that they should sell their cars and henceforth travel by bicycles. His producer-brother Nandamuri Trivikrama Rao and Pundarikakshaiah suggested to him that they should make a folk tale for their next venture. NTR also felt it was a safe bet to produce folklore as three of his starrers in a row, Pathala Bhairavi , Chandirani , and Rechukka were big hits. Thus was born the story of Jayasimha .

In this film an actor Gummadi has done the role of an old soldier- Randhir, whose daughter is Anjali Devi. That time Gummadi was an young man below 30, but he did the role of an aged, old man. Later in his memoirs, Gummadi wrote ” “After shooting the song, Jaya Jaya Sri Rama, I removed the makeup and sat next to NTR. Anjali Devi asked NTR ‘who is this boy?’ NTR had a hearty laugh and replied, ‘Till now he is the one who acted as your father.’ I can never forget the surprised expression on Anjali Devi’s face. As an actor it was the most memorable moment in my life.”

Normally we do not know much about Southern actors or actresses. Today, let us know more about NTR. Nandmuri Tarak Rama Rao ( 28-5-1923 to 18-1-1996) was an actor and a Politician from Andhra Pradesh. He was undoubtedly one of the most popular actors in his hay days. That is why, probably, his many hit films were either remade or mostly dubbed in Hindi – the maximum number than any other south artiste – 23 films. His contemporaries like Sivaji Ganesan, MGR, Gemini Ganesan etc were far behind him in this race.

He was born in a small village in Krishna District of Andhra coming under the then Madras Presidency. He was adopted by his childless Uncle and Aunty. He matriculated in 1940 and graduated from Guntur college in 1947. He first joined Government service as a Sub-Registrar but quit in 21 days to seek film roles. While studying, he was married to his maternal cousin in 1943 from whom he had 8 sons and 4 daughters- a full dozen children.

He debuted in the film “Mana Desam “-1949, directed by L.V.Prasad. Then there was no looking back. In the 50’s, he became very popular by doing roles of Rama, Krishna and Karna in mythological films. Later he did many films of the ” Robin Hood ‘type. He acted in Telugu and Tamil films. In 1982, he left films and founded Telugu Desam Party to safeguard regional pride. He was Chief Minister of A.P. from 1983 to 1995. He died on 18-1-1996. He was given Padmashree in 1968.

As I am from Hyderabad and know Telugu language, I have seen many of his films. He had a typical Drama Type acting style, like all other south artistes of his times. He founded his own film company and studio called National Art Theatre ( NAT), and produced over 30 films.

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey.

This article is the 17200th blog post for the blog.

Blog Day :

5212 Post No. : 17200

Slowly and steadily, and also unnoticeably, we arrive at yet another century milstone for the blog. This article is the 172th century post, or in other words post number 17200.

The previous century was achieved on 14 august 2022 (Blog day number 5140). This century is being achieved on 25th october 2022( Blog day number 5212). In other words, this century has arrived in 72 days, at a glacial pace of 1.4 songs daily.

This is the second century milestone for the blog after I retired from service in June 2022. If I thought that I would be able to devote more time to the blog post retirement, that does not seem to have happened.

There are some reasons that may have prevented me from going at a better rate. One reason is that the sheer volume of content in the blog that we have accumulated requires lots and lots of background work. I am still devoting considerable time to the blog but that is happening in ackground work, and is not getting reflected in the number of posts.

Readers who are following Blog Ten Year Challenge series will notice that we used to post as many as eight songs a day ten years ago. That was the situation when I was a full fledged employee holding a key post. Still I was able to be highly productive as far as the blog was concerned.

I used to wake up before 5 AM those days and would start working on the blog right away. Today also I wake up at the same time, but I am unable to do any blog work right away. My morning is devoted to walking my two dogs one by one between 5 AM and six AM. I did not have to do this ten years ago. My dogs those days freely roamed around on their own and came back on their own. This state of affairs continued till I retired. It is only now I am realising how much time my dogs were saving me during my working days, because I did not have to walk them daily. They did their walking, running and other excecises on their own.

Right now my residence is seeing some construction work, so for the time being I am unable to open my laptop right away because it means waking my wife up. Once the construction work is over, I will be able to keep the computer in some other room and that would allow me valuable early morning hours before my wife even wakes up. That is what I used to do doing my working days, when my computers were located in a room far away from the prying eyes of my wife. 😉 Moreover, even my wife was with me only for a few days in a year as she was herself working in a far off place.

Most articles that get covered in the blog these days are guest posts. Others are mostly Blog Ten Year Challenge posts. The idea now a days is that there should be at least one post daily and taht there should not be a DOT day in the blog. The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (Blog day number 4177). So we now have seen at least one post daily continously for 1035 days. Hopefully this will continue for long. There were days when I was unable to post, like for instance during the last few days of my service. Sudhir Jee has kept the blog flag high on those days by posting at least one article daily.

Personally I have not been able to really “blog” where blog means expressing my views in detail on various topics. There are lots and lots of topics where I would like to express myself in detail. In the past I have written in detail about several topics. Hopefully I will be able to achieve the same form soon enough.

While looking for a century post song, I came across this rare song from a rare movie which is a composition of artists that are hardly known to most music lovers.

The movie is “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959). “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959) was produced by S J Rajdev and directed by S Pal for Rajni Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Nazi, Samar Roy, Heera Sawant, Burhan, Jillani, Tuntun, Nimmo, Shashimala, Majnu, Malik, Balwant Sharma, Khursheed, Razak, Govind, Khanna, Parshuram, Gawli, Sandow etc in it.

There were six obscure songs in this obscure movies. One song from “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959) has been covered so far.

Here is the second song from the movie. It is sung by Minu Purushottam and Khursheed Baawra. Khawar Zamaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Prem.

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

I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose encouragement, support and contributions in one way or the other has kept this musical bandwagon rolling on and on for more than 14 years, which is a lot for an online collaboration of music lovers. Hopefully we will see this blog keep adding many more songs and centuries to its tally in the days, months and years to come.

Blog Day :

5178 Post No. : 17154

Today’s song is from the costume/stunt film ‘Jungle King’ (1959). The film was made by Artists United, Bombay (the name reminds me of the famous Hollywood company ‘United Artists’). It was produced by a group calling itself ‘Four X’ (for reasons best known to them) composed of Morris, Akbar, Asghar and Haider. The director was Masood and the music was by the pair of Bipin-Babul. The cast was very interesting. It consisted of Shaaga, Haaydu (what strange names! Never heard them !!), Sheila Ramani, Anwar, Majnu, Kamal Mehra, Heera Sawant, Tun Tun, Kabban Mirza, Dambe, Doud, Badshah, Rampuri Mehmood, Elephant Laxmi and many others.

I have never heard such strange names of actors in any film. Shaaga, Haaydu, Dambe, Rampuri Mehmood ? Where did they get these people with such names ? That way, earlier also I have come across some queer names in stunt films, like Bajarbattoo, Chemist, Dhondu, Babu Fatty, Gareeb Nawab etc. Few years back, Dr. Surjit Singh ji had downloaded 7,000 names of actors who acted in Hindi films from 1931 to 2000, from an internet site, which is extinct now. He had put it on the RMIM forum from where I downloaded the list. But in the intervening times, with me changing my Laptop several times till today, the list was lost in transit from one Laptop to the next one. The point is there were many funnier names of actors in that list.

Old time artistes had no means of publicity like today. With TV, Social Media, WA, Fb, newspapers, glossy magazines etc, publicity is easier for modern actors. Old time actors were forgotten as soon as they stopped appearing in films. Today’s film ‘Jungle King’ (1959) is a special film because in its cast are 2 old time actors who were forgotten totally with the times. One was a heroine of the then leading heroes, who fell on bad times and accepted whatever films came her way. But wisely she got married and spent a rich and comfortable retired life. The other one was an occasional singer, who held an honorable post in All India Radio and his songs became a choice of critics in those days. Let us know more about them.

One was actress Sheila Ramani,  a forgotten name today, but most of us will remember her in Navketan’s ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954) where she was cast as Anglo-Indian club dancer – Sylvie. I also remember her as the leading lady in ‘Funtoosh’ (1956), also from the banner of Navketan. Sheila was born on 2-4-1931, in Karachi. She was selected as Miss Mussoorie in 1948 and judged ‘Miss Simla’ in 1950. She made her debut as Champa, the femme fatale of ‘Badnam’ (1952), and revealed herself as a danseuse of charm in ‘Anand Math’ (1952). She was one of the few Sindhi actresses besides Sadhana, who made it big in Bollywood. She was mostly seen as an upper class mod girl in the 50s, a role she enacted to perfection all through that swinging era in films like V Shantaram’s ‘Teen Batti Char Raasta’ (1953), Sheikh Mukhtar’s ‘Mangu’ (1954), ‘Meenar’ (1954), ‘Railway Platform’ (1955), and ‘Funtoosh’ (1956).

Her uncle Sheikh Latif alias Lachchu was a famous Pakistani producer who produced films like ‘Pathan’ (1955), ‘Khizan Kai Baad’ (1955), ‘Darbar-e-Habib’ (1956) etc. Sheila visited Karachi – Pakistan on the request of her uncle, to play the lead role in Pakistani film ‘Anokhi’ (1956). The film was based on Hollywood’s ‘Fabulous Senorita’ (1952). “Gari Ko Chalana Babu, Zara Halkey Halkey Halkey, Zara Dil Ka Jaam Na Chhalkey” sung by Zubeda Khanum was the popular song from the film which did modestly good business in Pakistan. The movie’s great music was composed jointly by Timir Baran (a Bengali who came from India for this purpose) and Hassan Latif. Sheila went back to India and remained as a middle-of-the-range performer in Bombay films. In the later part of her career, she was reduced to obscure films with titles that sounded like ‘Jungle King’ (1959), and ‘The Return of Superman’ (1960) – one of the last films composed by Anil Biswas. In all, she acted in 24 films. Her last film was ‘Awaara Ladki’ (1967).

Sheila was very fond of sports, especially football and swimming. Ballroom dancing was a virtual addiction for her and she used to go out dancing as often as she could. Sheila was 5 feet four inches tall, and was so fastidious that any dress she would wear won’t be repeated for six months to come at least.

According to her son Rahul Cowasji, she retired from acting in 1962 and married  Jal Edi Cowasji on 31st March 1963. Part of her family that remained in Pakistan converted to Islam. She was a Hindu. She used to live in Mumbai with her husband Jal Cowasji (President of Bombay Dyeing) till 1981. They moved to Khartoum for 3 years and then to Sri Lanka for 3 years. After her husband’s death in 1984 she migrated to Australia on her own in the late 80’s and lived in Sydney and Surfers Paradise until health problems required her to return to India in the new millennium.  She used to live in her husband’s ancestral home in Mhow, near Indore (MP). She was frail and bed ridden for a few years before her death on 15-7- 2015.

Her favorite Hindi film of her career was ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954). Sheila was also the leading lady of India’s first Sindhi film after partition – ‘Abana’ (1958), in which young Baby Sadhna played her younger sister’s role.  [Thanks to Cineplot for some of the information in this Biosketch].

The other one was an  AIR announcer and an anchor. He was also a singer and an actor for a few films. His name was Kabban Mirza. Kabban Mirza’s name is known to very few people. He is one of those people who appeared like a comet and disappeared like a lightning. In his short stint with Hindi films, he acted in 2 films – ‘Jungle King’ (1959) (he was also the Assistant Director for this film) and ‘Murad’ (1961). He sang 1 song in the film ‘Captain Azad’ (1964) and 2 songs in the film ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983). He claimed to have sung a song “Is Pyar Ki Basti Mein” in a film called ‘Sheeba’,  without getting credited. No film with the name ‘Sheeba’ is traceable, but a song with the same mukhda is found in the film ‘Jungle King’ (1959), credited to Suman Kalyanpur and Babul with chorus. We don’t find a third voice in this song. It is possible that the film ‘Sheeba’ was left incomplete and the same song was used in the film ‘Jungle King’ (1959) with Babul as the male singer.

The question is why Kabban Mirza is remembered with such a meager contribution to film acting and singing ? The answer is because of his deep voice. Mirza who briefly flirted with the film world, left a lasting impression with his songs for producer-director Kamal Amrohi’s epic, ‘Razia Sultan’.

The songs — “Aayee Zanzeer Ki Jhankar Khuda Khair Kare” and “Tera Hijr Mera Naseeb Hai” — rendered in Mirza’s deep voice, were filmed on the slave-warrior character of Yaqut played by Dharmendra in the film.

Mirza was picked out after Amrohi auditioned dozens of singers in his search for a unique voice to suit the character of the slave-warrior. The film’s music director, Khayyam, reminisces: ‘‘Kamal Saab was a perfectionist. He called over 50 singers for a voice test, but remained unconvinced. Then someone suggested Kabban Mirza who was also a popular nauhaa khan (one who sings elegy for Imam Hussain’s martyrdom during Muharram). Kamal Saab’s search ended with Mirza.’’

Overnight his popularity soared. Mirza got a few more singing offers, including for BR Chopra’s ‘Nikaah’ (1982), but his preoccupation with radio came in the way. ‘‘His voice had a unique bass, unheard of in the industry,’’ says poet-lyricist Nida Fazli who penned a song for Razia Sultan.

Kabban Mirza was born in 1937 in Hapur, Uttar Pradesh. He belonged to the  Siddi community. This is a community that migrated from Central Asia/North Africa, during the time when India was ruled by Muslim dynasties. These people were brought in as slaves in the courts of the rulers of Delhi, Lucknow and other kingdoms in North India. They are also known as ‘Habshi’. It is curiously incidental that Yaqut, the slave in the court of Razia Sultan, also belonged to this ‘Habsh’ community. It sounds almost providentially ordained that the two people, separated by more than seven centuries – the original persona, and the singer who would sing for that historical character in a film, belong to the same original ethnic community. (Another very well known personality of Indian cinema belongs to this community – His real name was SYED HASSAN ALI ZAIDI. His family used to call him MIJJAN Miyan and screen name was Kumar, the actor who played the role of the sculptor in the film ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960)).

The child in Kabban took to music and singing very early. He was drawn to the ‘nauhaa’ style of singing – the traditional ‘marsiaa’ and ‘taaziadaari’ singing on the solemn occasion of Muharram. It is noted that the child Kabban used to practice his singing with his head inserted inside a ‘matka’ (earthen pot).

As he grew up, he was recognized as a very impressive and inspiring ‘nauha-rubaan’ – a singer of traditional Muharram renderings. His voice caught the attention, and he got his break with All India Radio, in the music department. This phase of his life is not well documented, no details are available about his training in classical music and who his teachers were. But his depth of knowledge about the detailed nuances of classical ragas is well acknowledged in his presentations of the radio program ‘Sangeet Sarita’. He anchored this program for many years. He would play select film songs based on Hindustani classical music, and then described in great detail the classical basis, the raag and its variations, the sur, the taal, and their interplay. He garnered a good measure of fan following for this program.

He had joined AIR in Lucknow, but he was soon transferred to Bombay station, where he would take on the anchor role for such noteworthy programs as ‘Hawa Mahal’, ‘Sangeet Sarita’ and ‘Chhaaya Geet’, for many years. There is some mention that he was approached to sing for music director Ravi in BR Chopra’s ‘Nikaah’ (1982), but apparently his association with AIR and his popularity as the anchor of mainline radio programs, came in the way of his further association with the world of films.

The two songs of ‘Razia Sultan’ became very popular in their time – the record sales were impressive. But as destiny would have it, this rise in popularity was accompanied by the most unfortunate health news for Kabban Mirza. He was detected with cancer of the larynx. This was a stroke of extreme bad luck from which he could never recover. His voice and his throat were his vital and essential assets. And that is where fate struck its most unkind blow. He went into prolonged treatment, but eventually he had to be operated upon. The year was 1993. He recovered from surgery and returned home. Thankfully, the malady seemed to be in remission, but then never got to use his voice for any serious and significant assignments.

Mirza, who was admitted to Jaslok Hospital on May 9 after he complained of cough and neck pain, came back home minus his once-famous voice. The tracheotomy tube inserted in his windpipe allows him to breathe, not speak. ‘‘He was diagnosed with throat cancer and treated 10 years ago also. But its relapse has shattered us. He won his bread and our happiness through his voice. Now he has lost that very voice,’’ bemoans Rifat, Mirza’s daughter.

The respite from the physical predicament lasted for a decade. The problem reared its painful head once again, and in May/June 2003, he had to undergo another surgery that resulted in the removal of a significant part of his larynx, leaving him practically with no sound in his throat. His vocal communications were reduced to very limited rasping utterances at the best. This regrettable fate for someone who had once been honored with the Golden Voice Award by the AIR. He reportedly died in June 2006.

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

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 64
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 7 July 2012) saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6189 Baadal dal se nikal chala Hamaari Baat(1943) Movie YIPPEED by now
6190 Taqdeer jagaa kar aayi hoon Dulaari (1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
6191 Hello hello hello mizaaj to huzoor ke hain achche Minister (1959) 3 songs covered out of 6 by now
6192 Ho gaye barbaad hum Ramman(1954) 5 songs covered out of 10 by now
6193 Haal e dil hamaara jaane na bewafaa Shrimaan Satyawaadi(1960) Movie YIPPEED by now
6194 Mere laadlon tum phoolo phalo Sant Gyaneshwar (1964) 5 songs covered out of 8 by now

We can see from the above table that three movies (out of six) whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with three movies wjose songs are still available to be covered. So these three movies are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (7 July 2022).

“Minister”(1959) was one of the eligible movies. It was produced by K M Khan and Begum Jaan and directed by Ramanlal Desai for Jahangir Productions. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Roopmala, Suresh, Jeevan, Bhagwan, Om Prakash, Tuntun, Murad, Sulochana, Baby Naaz, Gopi Krishna, Reshma, Jagadish Kamal, Narbada Shankar, Indira Bansal etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Minister”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi , Lata and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

It appears that Madan Mohan was under instructions to compose an O P Nayyar like composition. That is what his song sounds like. O P Nayyar never used the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in his compositions. This song gives us an idea how Lata Mangeshkar would have sounded like in an O P Nayyar composition.

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

Lyrics of the song were set to me by Prakashchandra.
