When one talks of star pairings during the golden era of Hindi movies, one thinks of “A grade” star pairings like Raj Kapoor-Nargis, Dilip Kumar- Madhubala, Dilip Kumar-Meena Kumari, Dev Anand- Waheeda Rehman etc. But there were other pairs too, that would be signed up by smaller budget movie makers, like for instance, Ashok Kumar- Nirupa Roy, Kishore Kumar-Vyjyanti Mala etc.

Movie makers with even smaller budgets would sign up up and coming pairs, who may have started off as child artists. One such pair was Shashi Kapoor and Nanda. Unlike some other pairs, this pair delivered quite a few hits and became a dependable pair.

Names of movies such as Chaar Deewaari (1961), Mohabbat Isko Kehte Hain (1965), Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965), Neend Hamari Khwaab Tumhaare (1966), Juaari (1968), Raja Sahab (1969) and Roothha Na Karo (1970) comes to mind when one thinks of Shashi Kapoor-Nanda pair.

Here is a song picturised on this pair. This playful and cheerful romantic song is from “Mehndi Lagi Mere Haath”(1962). This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song shows playful looking Shashi Kapoor and Nanda teasing each other. The best teasing is reserved in the last stanza of the song where Shashi Kapoor teases the lady -“you show arrogance as if you are baby Nanda.”
Pat comes the retort- “you behave as if you are the kid brother of Raj Kapoor”. 🙂

Great fun lyrics by Anand Bakshi during his early days in Hindi movies.

This song was the sixth song, out of six that this movie had. The earlier five songs, including one multiple version song, have been covered in the blog in the past in 2010 (two songs), 2015 (one multiple version song) and 2017 (one song). Following are the details of the earlier songs from this movie :

Missing Films of 1960s – 47
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The debut film for today is the stunt film ‘Faulaadi Mukka’ from 1965. Interesting to note that the production company is Madras Films, Bombay. The film is directed by S Azeem. The lead actors are Azaad and Indira. The supporting cast is listed as Kammo, Sherry, Murad, Sadhana Khote, Babu Raje, Nazeer Kashmiri, Ram Raseela, Mubarak, Lala Bhaiya, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Tuntun, Baburao Pehalwan, Pehalwan, and Julian etc.

This obscure film has recently become available online – the complete film and its songs are available as video clips online. The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. The songs are written by three lyricists – Akhtar Romani, Tabish Kanpuri and Saba Afghani. The song presented today is penned by Akhtar Romani. Music is by Iqbal. It is to be noted that this music director is not the same person as Iqbal Qureshi. The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur.

The song is performed on screen by Indira. In the video clip of the song, we also have a brief glimpse of Muraad, watching Indira singing. The song is a ‘missing the loved one’ genre song, as the young lady describes how much she is missing her beau.

Enjoy.

Missing Films of 1960s – 46
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today, we introduce the film ‘Chaar Chakram’ from 1965. Another film by the same name was also produced in 1932. The name ‘Chaar Chakram’ takes off on the more familiar Hindi phrases that tell of the friendship amongst four friends – ‘chaar yaar’ and ‘chandaal chaukdi’.

This film was produced under the banner of PM Pictures, Bombay and directed by Sultan. The star cast listed in the Geet Kosh is very detailed. The lead roles are by Shyam Kumar and Leela Kumari, and the supporting cast is Tuntun, SK Prem, Anjum, Fazal Khan, Haroon, Bhagwan, and another long list of names that are not too familiar – Kenny, Bob, Butter, Jilani, Maqbool, Ajeet, A Siddique, Hameeda, Sabeena, Lawrence, Chand, Doctor, Daud, Ameer, Muhammad Sandow, Ahmed, Zeenat, Purushottam, Bhai Das, and Iqbal.

Geet Kosh lists four songs for this film. All songs are written by Anjaan, and the music compositions are by the lesser know duo of Suresh-Talwar. The singing voice is of Minu Purushottam. So as you would have noticed, today’s song is quite a bit off the regular track, in terms of the artists involved.

The song tells of how the young lady’s heart has been stolen by her beau. His appearance is that of a simpleton. But his eyes cast a magic spell and the young lady is smitten with love.

With this song, the 1965 film ‘Chaar Chakram’ makes its debut on our blog.

Song – O Bhole Bhaale Jawaab Nahin Tera  (Chaar Chakram) (1965) Singer – Minoo Purushottam, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Suresh-Talwar

Lyrics

o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera
naina mila ke
yun muskuraa
chheen liya tu ne
dil mera
dil mera
dil me. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

surat se to hai bada bhola bhaala
par tera andaaz sabse niraala
surat se to hai bada bhola bhaala
par tera andaaz sabse niraala
jaana na maine
kab aa ke tu ne
kiya mere dil mein basera
basera
base. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

teri nigaahon mein hai aisa jaadu
aankhen milin to hua dil bekaabu
teri nigaahon mein hai aisa jaadu
aankhen milin to hua dil bekaabu
mere bhi dil par
zulmi nazar ka
jaadu wahi tu ne phera
re phera
re phe. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

jab se nazar meri tujh se ladi hai
haathon mein ye pyaar ki hathkadi hai
jab se nazar mei tujh se ladi hai
haathon mein ye pyaar ki hathkadi hai
ye hi hai bandhan
jisko ye duniya
kehti hai ulfat ka ghera
re ghera
re ghe. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

ओ भोले भाले जवाब नहीं तेरा

सूरत से तो है बड़ा भोला भाला

ये ही है बंधन

ओ भोले भाले जवाब नहीं तेरा

Series of Rafi songs-Rafi with music directors
—————————————————————-
(Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song
——————————————————————-
Part I-Arun Raghavan
—————————-
During his HFM career, Rafi worked with 14 music directors in more than 100 songs each. I describe them as Major music directors for Rafi or three figure music directors with Rafi. Then there were 45 music directors who composed between 11 to 99 songs with Rafi. We can call them semi major or two figure music directors with Rafi.

Major (viz three figure) music directors created 2743 song with Rafi, which is 53 % of all Rafi songs in HFM. The semi major (viz two figure) music directors created 1528 Rafi songs, viz 30 % of all Rafi songs in HFM. So we can say that the major and semi major music directors (59 in number) contributed a whopping 83% of all Rafi songs, which adds up to 4271 songs in all.

Then there were 170 music directors who worked with Rafi in less than 10 songs each. They were like the proverbial squirrels of Ramayan fame, who would carry a few grams of tiny pebbles each on their tiny paws while the giant vaanars would carry large boulders on their shoulders. The individual contributions of each of these music directors may be small in comparison to the major music directors, but the cumulative total of Rafi songs by these single figure music directors adds up to a figure of 503 ! This total is bigger than the career total of HFM songs sung by some well known playback singers, viz K L Saigal, Suraiyya, Talat Mehmood etc. And these songs contain quite a few wonderful songs as well.

I had discussed this fact while discussing a song on the occasion of Rafi’s birth anniversary. Raja, while commenting on that article had written –

“Just wondering if we have covered songs of all those 173 composers (1-9 songs category) here already? If not, that could be a project. Every composer who has used Rafisaab should be on the blog, even if the song being posted for that composer isn’t necessarily the Rafisaab one (if it is, of course better!).
That could be our way of showing our gratitude to that composer.”

I had taken note of Raja’s suggestion. And this writeup begins our series of articles about those music directors who were associated with Rafi in less than ten songs each. The name that I have chosen for this series is- pal do pal ka saath. This phrase is taken from that memorable qawwaali from “The Burning Train” (1981) containing this phrase.

In the beginning, I will discuss those music directors who have worked with Rafi in just one song each.

There are 48 such music directors. While most of them are small time less heard music directors, we have some rather well known names too in the list.

I decided to take up these names alphabetically. The first name that crop up in Alphabetical order is Aabid Hussain Khan who composed one Rafi-Zohrabai Ambalewaali duet in a 1949 movie called Last Message”(1949). While a few songs from this movie are available, the Rafi song , viz. “na thahar sake na tadap sake” does not seem to be available.

The next name that comes up alphabetically is Aparesh Lahiri (father of Bappi Lahiri). He has composed one Rafi song in a movie called “Subhash chandra” (1978). Since Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary is coming up next week, that would be the opportune time to cover this song.

The next name in the list of music directors is Arun Raghavan. He was a South Indian music director and he worked in just one Hindi movie. This movie, called “Mera Suhaag” (1961) was produced by Produced by N S R Mani and directed by H Krishnamoorthy for Secarts, Madras. The movie had Kanta Rao, Rajnala, Ramkrishna, K V S Sarma, A V subbarao, Balkrishna, Krisha Kumari, Girija, Rajshree, Hemlata etc. in it. In all likelihood, this movie was a remake of a south Indian movie where songs were re reccorded in Hindi. There were nine songs in the movie. Eight of these songs were sung by well known South Indian playback singers viz. P Susheela, S Janki and P B Srinivas.

But there was one song in the movie which was sung by Rafi. And that happens to be the one and only collaboration of Arun Raghavan as a music director with Rafi in a Hindi movie.

The song is penned by Vinod Sharma, who like the music director is an obscure name for this blog.

This song is a rare song. Only the audio of the song is available.

From the sounds of it, the song appears to be used as a background song in the movie.

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

So much discussion on a song which is a rare and obscure song. Most sites dealing with HFM will struggle to find anything to write on this song. But trust us in this blog to treat most songs in general and songs like this in particular with so much care and respect, and we are able to come up with so many special things to say about songs like this.

This song is special for us for the following reasons:

1. This is the only occasion when Rafi has sung a song under the music direction of Arun Raghavan and under the penmanship of Vinod Sharma.

2. This is the 2800th Rafi song in the blog. It was a conscious decision on our part to use a Rafi song from a less known music directors to emphasize that they too have contributed their mite in enriching HFM.

3. With this song, “Mera Suhaag”(1961) becomes the 3800th movie to get represented in the blog. The same reason as given above applies here as well for considering this movie for this honour.


Song-Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath (Mera Suhaag)(1961) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Vinod Sharma, MD-Arun Raghvan

Lyrics

Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath
kaun samajh paaya uska dukh uske man ki baat
Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath

dharmraj ne drupad suta ko diya juye mein haar
harichandra ki raani taara bik gayi beech baazaar
bik gayi beech baazaaaar
Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath
kaun samajh paaya uska dukh
uske man ki baat

Shakuntala ko raaja bhoola
jiska thha vishwaas kiya
chhoti si thhi baat
Raam ne
Seeta ko vanwaas diya
Seeta ko vanwaas diya
Seeta ko vanwaas diya

tujhko bhi vanwaas mila hai
teri karun kahaani
kul maryaada raah mein teri
?? deewaani
tera dharm piya ko paana
?? tujhko mil jaaye
haan
?? tujhko mil jaaye
dukh ki kaali si raat kate
sukh ka sooraj muskaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye

Aa ha, close to midnight, and we are at the Yippeee-ing hour once again. And the film that we are inviting into the yippeee-land tonight is ‘Hongkong’ from 1962.

There are many films that have taken us to foreign lands, and even around the world. But I am sure you will agree, that the film that has the most songs about foreign places, is this one. Let us just examine – first we have two important cities of south east Asia covered in the song – “Hongkong China Mina Singapore”. Then we have three nations from Africa, covered in the song “Kenya Uganda Tanganika”. An then, in yet one more sojourn abroad, we are taken to visit the Hawaii islands in the song in this post “Hono Lu Lu, Hono Lu Lu, Honolulu, Honolulu”. I am sure, outside of the film ‘Around The World’ (1967), in all probability, it is this film that covers the maximum number of foreign locations in its songs.

As per the Geet Kosh listings, this film is from the production banner of Pachhi Productions, and is directed by Pachhi himself. The star cast is led by Ashok Kumar and B Saroja Devi. Other members of the star cast include KN Singh, Helen, Bhalla, Babu Rao, Kitty, King, Doctor, Balram, Vishwamama, Kundan, Om Prakash, Lilly, and Leo amongst others. The nine songs of this film are written by four songwriters – Shewan Rizvi, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, SH Bihari and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, the song writer for this particular song is not identified. Music is from the mind of OP Nayyar.

Although the film itself is available, I am not able to locate online, the video clip of this song. As an interesting aside, there is a minor discussion around the availability of this complete version of this film in the collector circles. It seems that the video version of this film that is the most easily available, is purported to be an edited and incomplete version, in which the ending of the film has been edited out. And then there are one or two collectors who claim that they have the complete version of this film. Honestly, I have seen both the versions – the one that is more easily available, and the more complete version with a collector friend of mine – with very clear difference in the footage.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle. This is yet another wonderful and soft creation from OP Nayyar, having a slow paced rhythm. The tune allows to break down the lines of the song into shorter phrases, emphasizing each of the phrase components, and making the song sound more endearing. An enchanting rendering by Asha Bhosle – readily one of her best songs.

The list of earlier songs posted is given below. The nine songs have taken as much as almost six years, to all come on board.

Missing Films of 1960s – 45
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As I scanned the filmography of Nayyar Sb, presented by Atul ji in his late evening post yesterday, my eyes stopped with a jerk on seeing a ‘0’ in the decade of 1960s. Quick shift to the left and I find that the film is ‘The Killers’ from 1969. And the mind said ‘wow’ again – this film, and that too with Nayyar Sb’s music – how can that be an outsider still. Time to set the record right. So the immediate decision was to debut this film – immediately. 🙂

‘The Killers’ – is a kind of a multi starrer before its time. It brought together Sheikh Mukhtar, Dara Singh and Ajit – all stars in their own right of the genre of stunt / suspense / thriller films. Other players in the star cast are Helen (of course), Bela Bose, Leela Chitnis, Bhagwan, Jagdish Raj, Anwar Husain, Amar, Maruti, Savita, Sushma, Ram Lal, and Kundan etc. And yes, the alternate title of this film, now do not be surprised – ‘Hum Sab Qaatil Hain’, a la ‘Hum Sab Ustad Hain’ and ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’.  😀 😀

The film is produced under the banner of Sangam Films, Bombay, and is directed by Maruti. The six songs in this film are shared between Aziz Kashmiri (2) and SH Bihari(4). This song is written by SH Bihari. Music – yes OP Nayyar Sb.

A wonderfully composed song, that immediately brings to memory, the similarly paced song – “Hum Ne To Dil Ko Aap Ke Kadmon Mein Rakh Diya”, sung by Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle for Nayyar Sb in the film ‘Mere Sanam’ (1965). The use of sitar is simply so exquisite.

On screen, the song has been performed so sensuously by Helen, as she showers her graces on to her beau, role played by Dara Singh. In the initial moments of the song, the gentleman seems spooked, watching the lady wearing a towel, and then getting ready. He has this bowled over astounded expression on his face – almost as if, if he was required to say something, then God help the director.

But all in all, a wonderful composition, and performed equally wonderfully on screen by Helen. This is not a dance song, but she has conducted herself extremely tastefully.

With this, the film ‘The Killers’ makes its debut on our blog. And enjoy this lovely song. And the Helen performance.  🙂

 

Song – Nazren Mila Ke Aap Ne Ehsaan Kar Diya  (The Killers) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – OP Nayyar

Lyrics

hmmm hmmm hmmm
la la la la laaa lalla
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm

nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
phir se hamaare jeene ka samaan kar diya

mil ke hamen huzoor se
mehsoos ye hua
mil ke hamen huzoor se
mehsoos ye hua
duniya mein aur kuchh bhi nahin
pyaar ke siwa
sab kuchh wafaa ke naam pe
qurbaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya

bechain thi hamaari nazar
aap ke bagair
bechain thi hamaari nazar
aap ke bagair
mushqil tha zindagi ka safar
aap ke bagair
baahon mein le ke aap ne
aasaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
phir se hamaare jeene ka samaan kar diya

हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम
ला ला ला ला लाss लल्ला
हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम

नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
फिर से हमारे जीने का समान कर दिया

मिल के हमें हुज़ूर से
महसूस ये हुआ
मिल के हमें हुज़ूर से
महसूस ये हुआ
दुनिया में और कुछ भी नहीं
प्यार के सिवा
सब कुछ वफा के नाम पे
कुर्बान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया

बेचैन थी हमारी नज़र
आप के बगैर
बेचैन थी हमारी नज़र
आप के बगैर
मुश्किल था ज़िंदगी का सफर
आप के बगैर
बाहों में ले के आप ने
आसान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
फिर से हमारे जीने का समान कर दिया

Blog Day : 3469 Post No. : 13927

Today (16 january 2018) is the 92nd birth anniversary of O P Nayyar (16 january 1926- 28 january 2007).

Instead of discussing his biography and discussing his well known songs, I have decided to pay my tribute to the legendary music director by presenting his full filmography for Hindi movies here.

In summary, O P Nayyar composed music for 73 Hindi movies from 1952 to 1995. He composed 569 songs in these movies. The blog has 462 songs from these movies. 69 out of 73 movies are represented in the blog. Out of these movies represented in the blog, 47 movies are already YIPPEED. So we now have to look for just the remaining 26 movies to look for the balance 107 songs. We are very much in the last lap as far as covering all available O P Nayyar songs in the blog is concerned.

Here is the movie wise breakup:

Not all of the remaining songs are available. Some of these balance songs may have been lost for ever. For instance, the one remaining song from “Shrimati 420” (1956) viz-“tum to hamre man mein bhagwan ban ke base ho” was only there on the movie and its record was not issued. The movie prints are not available, so this remaining song will remain unavailable and as such this movie will remain un YIPPEED.

Yesterday, we discussed a song from “China Town”(1962). It turns out that there was a movie called “Hongkong” (1962) as well in the same year. “Hongkong” (1962) had music by O P Nayyar. This movie was directed by Paachhi for Paachi Productions, Bombay. This movie had Ashok Kumar, B Saroja Devi, K N Singh, Helen, Bhalla, Babu Rao, Kitty, King, Doctor, Balram, Kundan, Om Prakash etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. Seven songs from the movie have been discussed in the blog in the past.

This eighth song from “Hongkong” (1962) begins as a “teasing” song, where Om Prakash tries to play a roadside Romeo, but Helen, the target of Om Prakash’s attentions decides that attack is the best form of defence and boos him heartily. 🙂

The lyrics are quite amusing. The movie had four lyricists (Raja Mehdi ali Khan, Qamar Jalalabadi, Shewan Rizvi and S H Bihari), but sadly the lyricist of this song is not known. The lyricist has let his hair down in this song. He must have enjoyed penning this light hearted song. 🙂 The song is quite long. It has video as well as as audio versions and the lyrics differ in some stanzas. I have provided lyrics and links of both the versions.

Music is of course O P Nayyar, and it would appear that he too must have enjoyed composing this song. the song is sung by his favourite playback singing pair of Rafi and Asha Bhonsle.

Song-Tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon (Hongkong)(1962) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

tumhari adao pe ae husnwaalon
haan aan aan aan aan
haaye
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husnwaalon
agar ham na marte
to phir kaun marta
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husnwaalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta

nahin tumsa koi
agar ham na kehte
to ye naaz o andaaz rakkhe hi rehte
na itraao itna tum is baankpan par
nazar lag na jaaye
chalo yoon na tan kar

sharaarat se mud mud ke kya dekhte ho
hamen ya ke apni ada dekhte ho
ham hi jab na honge to phir kya karoge
har ik baat per kis se akda karoge
kise dekh kar sharm aaya karegi
haya kis se munh ko chhupaaya karegi
ye chutki se dil kiska masla karoge
hamen yaad kar kar ke machla karoge
mohabbat ki baaton pe itna na bigdo
zara haath seene pe rakhkar ye keh do
aa aa aa aa aa aa
haaye
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta

ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
haaye ae ae ae ae
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta aa
arre ham na hota to tum kispe marta
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
arre ham na hota to tum kispe marta

ke soorat se dilbar ho aur dil se patthar
khari baat keh di to bigde huye ho
angoothhe ko daanton se pakde huye ho
zara paas aao
mulaaqaat kar len
agar hans ke dekho to ik baat kar len
aa aa aa aa aa
haaye
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta

ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
are ham na hota to tum kispe marta
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
are ham na hota to tum kispe marta

koi romeo koi farhaad dekha
jise dekha majnu ka ustaad dekha
liye phirte ho ishq ki chot dil mein
nazar mein safai to hai khot dil mein
tumhen har qadam pe ye hota hai dhokha
jo dekhega tumko
wahi mar mitega
zara dekh le
ham to kuchh aur samjhe
chalo peechhe peechhe
nateeja na socho
bina jaan pehchaan ke baat karna
bahaane banaa kar mukaaqaat karna
bahut khoobsoorat samajhte ho khud ko
zara aaina le ke soorat to dekho
muhabbat haseenon se karne chale hain
koi inko dekho ye marne chale hain

aa aa aa aa
ye tum husn waalon se kya baat karta
arre ham na hota to tum kis pe marta
ye tum husn waalon se kya baat karta
arre ham na hota to tum kis pe marta

tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte
to phir kaun marta
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husnwaalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta

karo ladkiyon se na baaten akadkar
police le na jaaye ji gardan pakad kar
hamen dekhte hi chahakne lage ho
hawa lag gayi hai
bahakne lage ho

ye fashion ye makeup
ye tie ye collar
tumhaare to nakhre hain hamse bhi badh kar
do roza jawaani pe phoole huye ho
tum apne budhaape ko bhoole huye ho
hamen dekhte ho nigaahen bachaa kar
sharaafat dikhaate ho nazren jhukaa kar
ho tum kitne chaalaak ham jaante hain
tumhaari nigaahon ko pehchaante hain
chalo tum pe chhodaa tumhi faisla do
ke tum ache bure ho magar ye bata do
aa aa aa
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
are ham na hota to tum kispe marta
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
are ham na hota to tum kispe marta

hawaaon mein julfon ko lehraate niklo
chalaate huye teer bal khaate niklo
idhar dekhte ho udhar dekhte ho
giraate ho bijli jidhar dekhte ho

ye lip stick se honthon ko shola banaa kar
kahaan chal diye aag dil mein laga kar
anokha design hai ye sandlon ka
yahi shape hai bas hamaare dilon ka
haseen naazneen ho magar ho sitamgar
ke soorat se dilbar ho aur dil ke patthar
khari baat keh di to bigde huye ho
angoothe ko daanton se pakde huye ho
zara paas aao mulaakaat kar len
agar hans ke dekho to ik baat kar len
aa aa aa aa aa aa
haaye

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘इ’ – इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो

 

मेरी आवाज़ के पीछे चले आओ
चले आओ
चले आओ॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, only if it were possible in this physical world. The only recourse is to listen to the recordings. That charisma is going to remain alive, till the time there is music on this earth. The magic of Rafi Sb’s voice will never cease.

Moving ahead with the next instalment of this series. Picking up next letter ‘इ’, I bring to the blog this wonderful favourite song, which has become a rarity these days. I could not find this song online. Another collector in his own channel has, with deliberation, posted a very short clip of this song. I can see comments from other listeners, requesting for posting the complete song. But of course, some people, you know. . .

The song is from the film ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’ from 1962. The film is produced under the banner of Roopvani Films and is directed by Vasant Painter. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Indira, Heeralal, Ratnamala, Pal Sharma, SK Shukla, Baby Shobha, Kalpana, Mohan Choti, Arun, and Polson amongst others.

Only four songs are listed for this film. The songs are written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music direction is by Sudhir Phadke.

In this song, the voice accompanying Rafi Sb’s, is of Asha Bhosle. The song has such an endearing flow, and when it comes to end after two antaraas, it seems almost abrupt. It builds into such a comfortable listen that, when it ends, the feeling it leaves behind is – ‘it ended too soon, there should be more’. Simple words, simple melody, rendered with deliberate softness and slowness. What a lovely song which is full of sadness of separation. Very touching.

Song – Is Jag Mein Kahin Bhi Rahiyo (Pyaar Ki Jeet) (1962) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

ye lahu nahin hai pag mein
aasha ka lahu behta hai
tum sun jo sako to sun lo
beh beh ke tumhen kehta hai
aasha ko tod na jaiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

is lahu ko ik din sajni
sindoor banana hoga
teri maang sajaani hogi
doli mein bithaana hoga
us din ki khoj mein rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

ये लहू नहीं है पग में
आशा का लहू बहता है
तुम सुन जो सको तो सुन लो
बह बह के तुम्हें कहता है
आशा को तोड़ ना जइयो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

इस लहू को इक दिन सजनी
सिंदूर बनाना होगा
तेरी मांग सजानी होगी
डोली में बिठाना होगा
उस दिन की खोज में रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो

Missing Films of 1960s – 44
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

There is so much to be explored and to be showcased. This journey of debut songs is taking us down the 1960s path, and almost every day we are discovering fabulous gems of song that most people have not heard.

Today’s film is ‘Flying Circus’ from 1965. The film is produced under the banner of Regal Films, Bombay and is directed by Dhanpat Rai. The star cast is led by Ranjan and Nasreen, and also includes Bela Bose, Neelofer, Rajan Kapoor, Babu Raje, Polson, Shyam, Vishwa Mehra, Shri Bhagwan and Kamini Devi etc. There are six songs listed for this film. Music is composed by Robin Bannerjee. Two lyricists are identified – Farooque Kaiser and Yogesh Gaud. This song is from the pen of Yogesh Gaud.

The singing voices are those of Suman Kalyanpur and Kamal Barot.

The music is the key. An obscure film, and a lesser known music director. But see, what wonders can be created even in these obscure circumstances. From the sound and flow of the song, I am quite sure this is a twin dance song. Also, keeping Nasreen’s name possibly for the leading role, the two names that could possibly be performing this song on screen are Bela Bose and Neelofer, but I am just guessing. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends, to add more information for this film and this song.

A lilting fast paced dance number, I am sure you are going to like.  Enjoy

 

Song – Lag Gaya Re Lag Gaya Re Teer Nishaane Pe  (Flying Circus) (1965) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Kamal Barot, Lyrics – Yogesh Gaud, MD – Robin Bannerjee

तीर निशाने पे
लग गया रे लग गया रे
तीर निशाने पे
जाएगा बचके कोई मेरी निगाहों से
लग गया

आज नग़मों की मस्ती में देखो
डूब जाएगी ये दुनिया सारी
आज नग़मों की मस्ती में देखो
डूब जाएगी ये दुनिया सारी
जिस तरफ भी निगाहें उठेंगी
नज़र आएगी सूरत तुम्हारी
नज़र आएगी सूरत तुम्हारी
लग गया

लग गया रे लग गया रे
तीर निशाने पे
लग गया रे लग गया रे
तीर निशाने पे

लग गया

आज कदमों में देखो हमारे
बीजलियाँ लाख बलखा रही हैं
आज कदमों में देखो हमारे
बीजलियाँ लाख बलखा रही हैं
और सजदे में हर इक अदा के
लाख नज़रें बिछीं जा रही हैं
लाख नज़रें बिछीं जा रही हैं
लग गया

लग गया रे लग गया रे
तीर निशाने पे
लग गया रे लग गया रे
तीर निशाने पे

Now, none of the regulars can say they have not heard this song. In a film that boasts of more than one song that competes for the title of the best song in the film, this song surely is one of the best songs in this film. Wow – that sure is saying something for the quality of songs of this film. In 1962, music director Ravi has been active as an independent music director for about seven years now, and he already has about 30 films behind him, that he has composed for. His films include such notable hits as ‘Ek Saal’ (1957), ‘Dilli Ka Thug’ (1958), ‘Ghar Sansaar’ (1958), ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’ (1960), ‘Ghunghat’ (1960), ‘Gharaana’ (1961), ‘Modern Girl’ (1961), ‘Bombay Ka Chor’ (1962) and many more. And then in 1962, out comes this Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen starrer called ‘China Town’ – and the popular response is “Baar Baar Dekho, Hazaar Baar Dekho”. Oh yes, the songs of this film – one just does not feel done with them, no matter how many times you have heard them.

Produced and directed by Shakti Samant, the cast of actors includes such notables – Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen, Madan Puri, SN Bannerjee, Keshav Rana, TunTun, Rashid Khan, Polson, Samson, Shetty, Jeevankala, Mridula and about twenty more names.  Songwriter of all the eight songs in this film is Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music, already mentioned, is by Ravi.

Eight songs in all, seven of which have already been showcased on our blog. And we come to the yippeee night for this film, brining on board this last, but not the least, songs of this film. It is a lovely composition, and just by listening to it, even without the visual, the image that comes to mind is – Helen. Ravi has tried to recreate the magic of “Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu” – albeit a slower pace, and has done a great composition.

But wait. What is this that I discover? The song that we have always heard in the film, and also as generally available in most uploads – goodness that song is missing from the listings in Geet Kosh. This question took up most of my time today afternoon and evening. I must admit that either I have been forgetful, or plain ignorant. Other folks may already know this, but this song has two versions, which, as I discovered after some leg work on the internet and searching my own collection, are quite different from each other, in terms of wordings. The tune and the melody is exactly the same but the words are noticeably different.

The Geet Kosh listing shows the title of this song as “Laakhon Haseenon Se Hai Gulzar China Town”. But as we play the video clip of this film, this song appears as the film beginning song, with the title line changed to “Rangeen Bahaaron Se Hai Gulzar China Town”. This latter version is the one that is the most available in all the searches one makes online. It is almost as if the former version does not exist. I checked in my collection, and am relieved to find that I have both versions in the folder of this film. And then, with some more intense search online, I am finally also able to locate a Sa Re Ga Ma upload, which is the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version. The upload comment specifically states that this recording is from the vinyl record prepared from the sound track. There is some error here possibly, because the sound track version is “Rangeen Bahaaron Se”. I checked some more and then I am able to locate an Eraksoldies upload of an SLBC (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corp) program that presents all songs of this film. Knowing this is an SLBC recording, these songs are quite surely from 78 rpm records. And this selection contains the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version. I checked again in my collection, and sure enough, this version in my collection also is from a 78 rpm recording. So anyways. . .

What may have been the reason to make two versions, is not clear at this time. We know that it was an era that all songs were recorded twice, once for the 78 rpm record, and once for the final sound track. We see many instances that the two versions are different, in that there is either a different antaraa, or an additional antaraa in the sound track version. More noticeably, the difference in the two versions generally is the music – different lengths of preludes and interludes, maybe an extra couplet in the beginning, subtle variations in the music arrangement and the instruments used. However, it is only rarely that we see that there is a considerable variation in the wordings of different lines themselves. It is generally accepted that the 78 rpm version is released first. Also generally that both versions are recorded simultaneously. But yes, there are known cases where these two recordings may have been done at different points in time, as per circumstantial requirements. Recall the song of ‘Chhalia’ (1960) in which the song “Chhalia Mera Naam. . .” was re-recorded for sound track after the censors raised objections to some words in the original recording.

By that logic, it would seem that the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version is recorded earlier and the “Rangeen Bahaaron Se” version which appears in the sound track was probably done later. The former, 78 rpm version carries two antaraas, and the latter soundtrack version carries three antaraas. And there is a sizeable modifications of words themselves. Now what prompted these wording changes – that needs to be explored. I would request our knowledgeable readers and friends to please add information related to this query.

The earlier songs posted for this film are listed below.

Baar Baar Dekho Hazaar Baar Dekho 617 25-Jan-09
Dekho Ji Ek Baalaa Jogi 3486 2-Feb-11
Yamma Yamma Yamma Tu Parwaana Main Shamma 4858 21-Oct-11
Hum Se Na Poochho Hum Kahaan Chale 11688 24-Dec-15
Ye Rang Na Chhootega Ulfat Ki Nishaani Hai 13586 15-Sep-17
Bada Qaatil Hai Mera Yaar China Chin Chin Chu 13917 14-Jan-18

 

Of the above listed songs, the “Yamma Yamma Yamma. . .” song actually includes two songs, which are listed at nos. 5 and 6 in the Geet Kosh. And the song “Bada Qaatil Hai Mera Yaar. . .” is the song listed at no. 8 in the Geet Kosh.

So we bring to Yippeee land, this most musical film, that started its journey on our blog close to – goodness, nine years. Wow. Maybe one day we shall do an analysis on the patterns in the time taken to bring all songs of a film on board. Maybe it brings out some interesting results.

Enjoy both these “Rangeen Bahaaren” and “Laakhon Haseeen” versions of the song. And welcome ‘China Town’ to Yippeee land. 🙂

[Ed Note: Ah yes, and the titling on the video clip (it is uploaded in the Rajshri channel) is also incorrect. They have captioned the upload as “Thandi Bahaaron Se. . .” whereas it is very clearly heard as ‘Rangeen Bahaaron Se. . .”.]
