Blog Day: 4331 Post No.: 15625

Today, May 27, 2020 is the 56th Remembrance Day of India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. I also remember this day for two other reasons. First, it was the day when my SSC result was out in the morning and second, I had to attend my maternal uncle’s marriage. That day was almost like current lockdown situation except that the trains were running and we could go out. A pall of gloom was visible on almost every one’s faces I met at the marriage. The question in their mind was ‘After Nehru, Who?

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was a visionary and the architect of modern India. For a newly independent country, charting of a growth path was necessary. The policies were directed towards creating infrastructure facilities like construction of major dams, power plants and setting up of heavy industries like steel plants, engineering and chemicals. Higher educational institutes like Indian Institute of Technologies (IITs), the Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) and other scientific institutes like All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMs) were set up. He was also the architect of non-alignment movement during the cold-war years.

There were also brickbats for Pandit Nehru’s policies. His handling of Kashmir issue in 1948 and his China policies were highly criticised. Also, the food crisis in the 1960s were blamed for not giving importance to the agricultural sector in the Five-year plans. The foremost critics of Nehruvian policies in those days were Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia of Socialist Party, Hem Barua, H V Kamath and Barrister Nath Pai of Praja Socialist Party, Balraj Madhok of Jan Sangh and Hiren Mukherjee of Communist Party of India. Despite their relatively much lower number of seats in the parliaments, they were forces to reckon with as the leaders from the opposition parties.

I remember in my teen that during the parliament sessions that the newspapers will carry front-page news of the criticism of Government’s policies by one or more of the names of the leaders I mentioned above. Some of these names may not ring bell to the new generations. Most of them were good orators. It was the charismatic presence of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who aptly handled heated debate upholding the democratic norms in the parliament.

After the General Election of 1957, one more strong critic of Pandit Nehru’s policies entered the Lok Sabha. He was 33-year old Atal Bihari Vajpayee of Jan Sangh. There used to be heated arguments between the young Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Pandit Nehru in Lok Sabha. One of the anecdotes which Atal Bihari Vajpayee revealed during a ‘no confidence’ motion against his Government in 1996, proves that despite serious differences, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s admired Atal ji’s performance in the Lok Sabha. Let us read in Vajpayee’s own words which he spoke in Hindi (translated by me in English):

Once during the heated debate in the Lok Sabha, I told Nehru ji that he had a mixed personality in which he was both Churchill and Chamberlain (former prime ministers of the U K – first was supposed to be hawkish and the second dovish in crisis management). Nehru ji did not get angry. In the evening, I attended at a function organised for a visiting foreign dignitary. At the venue, Nehru ji saw me and called at his place to complement me for my rousing speech of that day in the Lok Sabha. He took me to one of the foreign dignitaries and introduced me by saying ‘he is a young leader from the opposition who always criticises me, but I see in him a great future’.

And what a great statesman Atal Bihari was as well. In 1977, when Atal Bihari Vajpayee became the Foreign Minister, he came to South Block to take charge of his ministry. While walking in the lobby of his office, he noticed that Nehru ji’s portrait was missing from the wall. He called his officials and asked them as to what happened to the portrait. There was no answer. After some time, he found that Nehru ji’ portrait was back in its place. Both these anecdotes indicate the greatness of both these leaders and their relationship in which there was no malice despite serious political differences.

Some of the IPTA members belonging to Hindi film fraternity were also the critics of the Nehruvian policies. Majrooh Sultanpuri in 1948 wrote a poem calling Pandit Nahru a stooge of Hitler and the slave of the Commonwealth for which he was arrested in 1949 by the then Chief Minister of Bombay State, Morarji Desai. Sahir Ludhianvi’s satirical song, cheen o arab hamaara hindustaan hamaara had an implicit criticism of the Government’s policies for widening the gap between ‘haves’ and ‘haves not’.

Shailendra was also the critics of Nehru. He had written a sarcastic poem on Nehru’s visit to the UK in June 1953 to attend the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth. In today’s scenario, probably, Shailendra would have become a persona non grata in South Block. But with Pandit Nehru, it was different. The following anecdote which I read on the facebook page of Dinesh Shankar Shailendra, the youngest son of Shailendra, throws some light which indicates that Pandit Nehru had no malice towards his critics.

Sometime after the Chinese aggression in October 1962, Pandit Nehru invited some members of Indian Film Industry to Delhi to personally thank them for doing programmes for the Indian Army to boost their moral and also raise funds. Raj Kapoor with his core team comprising Shankar-Jaikishan, Mukesh, Hasrat Jaipuri and Shailendra were also the guests. All the guests were waiting at the venue but Nehru ji got delayed. A bored Shailendra told Raj Kapoor that he was tired of waiting and would like to go back to his hotel room. He also said that there were so many important guests and he would not be missed. Raj Kapoor agreed.

After some time, Pandit Nehru arrived and personally met all his guests. While talking to Raj Kapoor, Pandit Nehru suddenly asked ‘Where is Shailendra? – the man who wrote hothon pe sachchaayi rehti hai, jis desh mein ganga behti hai. Raj Kapoor was in a quandary. He immediately sent Shankar to bring Shailendra from his hotel room which he did. A relieved Raj Kapoor proudly introduced Shailendra to Pandit Nehru who insisted getting photographed exclusively with Shailendra. Nehru ji told Shailendra that he would personally sign the picture and send it to him which he did.

It was, therefore, no surprise that the finest tributes to Pandit Nehru following his death on May 27, 1964 came from his critics. After reading them, I feel that they have all come from the bottom of their hearts and also out of immense respect for him. Kaifi Azmi wrote a heart-felt song, meri aawaaz suno, pyaar ka raag suno for ‘Naunihaal’ (1967). He also wrote a nazm, Nehru in 1964. Sahir Ludhianvi wrote a nazm, Jawaharlal Nehru soon after the death of Pandit Nehru.

Pandit Nehru was a great admirer of Hindi and Urdu poetry. He was a fan of poets like Josh Malihabadi, Firaq Gorakhpuri, Suryakant Tripathi Nirala and Harivanshrai Bachchan with whom he used to interact with them on poetry. There are anecdotes on Pandit Nehru’s friendship with these poets which also reveal that Pandit Nehru took criticism from his friends without malice towards them.

Pandit Nehru was instrumental in setting up of Children’s Film Society of India in 1955. He had invited Kidar Sharma to direct the first film for the children, ‘Jaldeep’ (1956). The film won the award of the best film under children’s film category at Cannes Film Festival in 1957. For the next children’s film, ‘Bachhon Se Baaten’ (1957), Kidar Sharma requested Nehru ji as a part of the film. One can say that Pandit Nehru acted in a film where he was the main actor. [Source: Kidar Sharma’s autobiography, ‘One And Lonely Kidar Sharma’ (2002)].

Shailendra wrote a non-film song as a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru. On the occasion of the 56th Remembrance Day of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, I am presenting the same non-film song ‘phool khilega baaghon mein’ (1964) which is rendered by Mukesh. The song is set to music by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Chorus + Mukesh

Lyrics

Chacha Nehru
amar rahen
Chacha Nehru
amar rahen
Chacha Nehru
amar rahen

phool khilega baaghon mein
jab tak gulaab kaa pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par
Nehru naam tumhaara
jab tak hai iss jag mein
chanda suraj kaa ujiyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

humko hai dukh humne kho daala apna humjholi
jiske saath deewaali thhi uske sang khelen holi
kaun bada ab hum jaise ban ke khilwaad karega
pyaar karega jhagdega jhoothi taqraar karega
khilega jag ke aangan mein
jab tak bachpan pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

kaun manga kar dega humko bhaalu haathi cheete
bachpan ke din apne to bachpan se pehle beete
kaun hamen chitti likhega pyaar bhari bhaasha mein
haay tumhen bhi hum likh paate kaash aur tum jeete
jab tak bachche muskaayenge youn nirmal jaldhaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

wo muskaan hamaare jaisi hriday jeetne waali
wo gussa jo sheetal hai jaise barkha matwaali
wo ghudki jo sikhlaati hai sabak yaad kar lena
wo baaten jaise bikhraaye phool phool ki daali
yaad aayengi jab tak dukh mein degi yaad sahaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

phool khilega baaghon mein jab tak gulaab ka pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

chale gaye ho lekin lagta hai tum yahin chhupe ho
jaise hum bachchon se aankh micholi khel rahe ho
bagiyaa ke phoolon mein bikhri hai muskaan tumhaari
nadiyon ke sang chalte ho parvat ke saath khade ho
jab tak baaki hai duniya mein jo kuchh bhi hai pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

kabhi na bhoolenge hum tumne itna pyaar diya hai
kabhi na murjhaayega tumne jo gulzaar diya hai
hamen tumhaari yaadon ki saugandh ke hum bachche bhi
yogya banenge uske tumne jo sansaar diya hai
jab tak mehnat ke haathon jaayega vishwa sanwaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

hum sachche insaan banen
hum dost banen vishwaasi
hum chaahe jo hon pahle hon achchhe Bharatwaasi
kabhi na ho ab jung zameen par
desh rahen sab mil kar
jung ek hi ho duniya mein
bhookh rog aur dukh par
jab tak bahti hai is duniya mein Ganga ki dhaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara
phool khilega baaghon mein
jab tak gulaab kaa pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par
chaacha naam tumhaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par
chaacha naam tumhaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par
chaacha naam tumhaara

Blog Day:

4326 Post No. : 15617

As a school going student, I was kept in strict discipline which meant going from home to school and back. No watching of movies. Even talking about movies and reading movie magazines were taboo. That did not prevent me from clandestinely reading movie magazines and books lying around the home that was apparently alright for elders to read.

It was in 1978, when I went to college and was allowed freedom as befitting a college goer. And I misused this freedom with abandon. I started watching movies left and right bunking college, as if making up for the lost time.

It was during this movie watching spree that I watched many old movies during their re runs. It included not only movies like “Sholay”(1975),”Deewaar”(1975), “Mera Gaaon Merra Desh”(1971) etc etc but also movies from earlier decades.

The movie halls where I watched most of these movies had names like Sujata, Sandhya, Vasundhara etc. But not all movie halls had feminine names. There was an old movie hall called Ratan Talkies. Closeby there was another movie hall called Rupashree which reputedly was the first movie hall of Bihar (which was opened way back in 1930s). Then there was Welfare cinema hall. These three cinema halls were closer to my residence than others. The farthest cinema hall was a “properly” named movie hall called Plaza. It was the kind of name that one found in big places like New Delhi. 🙂

It was in one matinee show in 1978 in Ratan Talkies that I watched “Kaajal”(1965). I did not have much clue about the movie. I found the movie boring in the beginning when I saw tragedy queen Meena Kumari and tragedy Kumar Raj Kumar in the movie. But then the songs began to appear one after the other. With every song, the reaction (mine as well as that of others) was, arre, this song is from this movie ! All iconic songs !

Since I had started my movie watching spree just recently, many actors were “new” for me. I watched Raj Kumar for the first time in this movie. Then there were many others whom I did not recognise at that time and regarded them as lesser actors. When I look back at the cast now, I realise that this movie had a galaxy of big names. The fact that it had Padmini, Mumtaz, Mehmood etc in it apart from the tragedy persons was lost on me. Then yesteryear legend Durga Khote was there too. Dharmendra was there whom I thankfully recognised, having seen him in a few movies earlier.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Nine of these songs have been covered in the past. When I look at the writeups of these songs, I realise that the writeups do not do justice to the songs. So I think we need to add some more contents and spice to these writeups. So I request our regulars to contribute their observations on these iconic songs.

Following songs from “Kaajal”(1965) have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the tenth song from “Kaajal”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

This song is picturised as a “bhang” song on Mehmood and Mumtaz. Before I watched this song, I was not even aware that these two were in this movie.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Zara si aur pila do bhang (Kaajal)(1965) Singer-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola aa
O hai ham bhola
zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola aa
O hai ham bhola aa
meri to akal huyi hai dang
ye kaisa badlaa tera dhang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
b b b b b drurrrrrr ha

mujhe samajh na tu bairaagi
maine aaj tapasya tyaagi ee
hmm hmm hmm hmm
aehe aehe
mujhe samajh na tu bairaagi
maine aaj tapasya tyaagi
tere roop ka jhatka khaa ke
meri soyi jawaani jaagi ee
meri soyi jawaani jaagi
ja hat jaa arey malang
kare kyun beech sabhi ke tang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola
O hai ham bhola

(undeciphered words)
Tak dhum tak tak tak tum

Kyun thhaam ke dil ko tehle
Jo chot lagi hai sah le ae
Haay haay
Kyun thhaam ke dil ko tehle
Jo chot lagi hai sah le ae
Us baat pe ab zid kaisi
Jo baat na maani pehle
Jo baat na maani pehle

Kyun jhagde mere sang
Main tujhse haar chukaa hoon jung
Ke dil mera dola
o hai ham bhola aa
meri to akal huyi hai dang
ye kaisa badlaa tera dhang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa

(undeciphered words)

mere dil se nikle haaye
gori kyun nakhre dikhlaaye

(undeciphered words)

mere dil se nikle haaye
gori kyun nakhre dikhlaaye
zaraa hans ke gale se lag jaa
tujhe kunwaara pyaar bulaaye
tujhe kunwaara pyaar bulaaye
tere man pe chadh gaya jang
yoonhi ab kyun chamkaaye rang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola aa
O hai ham bhola

ज़रा सी और पिला दो भंग
मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग
के दिल मेरा डोला आ
ओ है हम भोला
ज़रा सी और पिला दो भंग
मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग
के दिल मेरा डोला आ
ओ है हम भोला आ
मेरी तो अक्ल हुयी है दंग
ये कैसा बदला तेरा ढंग
के तू था भोला

ओ है हम भोला आ
ब ब ब ब ब दृर्र्र्रर्र्र्रर हा

मुझे समझ न तू बैरागी
मैंने आज तपस्या त्यागी ई
हूँ हूँ हूँ हूँ
एहे एहे
मुझे समझ न तू बैरागी
मैंने आज तपस्या त्यागी
तेरे रूप का झटका खाके
मेरी सोयी जवानी जागी ई
मेरी सोयी जवानी जागी
जा हट जा अरे मलंग
करे क्यूँ बीच सभी के तंग
के तू था भोला

ओ है हम भोला
ज़रा सी और पिला दो भंग
मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग
के दिल मेरा डोला आ
ओ है हम भोला आ

( अटपटे बोल )
तक धूम तक तक तक तुम

क्यूँ थाम के दिल को टहले
जो चोट लगी है सह ले ए
हाय हाय
क्यूँ थाम के दिल को टहले
जो चोट लगी है सह ले ए
उस बात पे अब जिद कैसी
जो बात न मानी पहले
जो बात न मानी पहले

क्यूँ झगडे मेरे संग
मैं तुझसे हार चुका हूँ जंग
के दिल मेरा डोला आ
ओ है हम भोला आ
मेरी तो अक्ल हुयी है दंग
ये कैसा बदला तेरा ढंग
के तू था भोला

ओ है हम भोला आ
( अटपटे बोल )

मेरे दिल से निकले हाए
गोरी क्यूँ नखरे दिखलाए

( अटपटे बोल )

मेरे दिल से निकले हाए
गोरी क्यूँ नखरे दिखलाए
ज़रा हंस के गले से लग जा
तुझे कुंवारा प्यार बुलाये
तुझे कुंवारा प्यार बुलाये
तेरे मन पे चढ़ गया जंग
यूंही अब क्यूँ चमकाए रंग
के तू था भोला

ओ है हम भोला
ज़रा सी और पिला दो भंग
मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग
के दिल मेरा डोला आ
ओ है हम भोला आ

Blog Day :

4320 Post No. : 15606 Movie Count :

I am reminded of Halley’s comet when I started writing this post. Relevance and context. . .?

Well, as they say…. samajhne waale samajh gaye hain

Anyway, coming to this unique post, all I can say is that I was surprised when I was asked to go ahead with the song by none other than Sudhir ji. There is some email interaction happening between self, Atul ji and Sudhir ji on another topic.  In this interchange of emails and out of the blue, I was suggested to take up today’s “song”.

This song is from a film that never got completed. The film was shelved and the ‘song’ technically is from an unreleased film.

I am a huge admirer and follower of the rules of this blog such as.

  1. Only Hindi film and non-film songs are represented.
  2. Every song is represented only once, no matter how important or popular it is.
  3. Lyrics are a must in each post for the song represented.
  4. Multiple-version songs from the same film are considered as one.
    Etc.

Of course, there are some exceptions, such as room for songs rendered in English in our Hindi films etc. “Wish Me Luck” from ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970), “My Heart Is Beating” from ‘Julie’ (1975) etc. being such examples. But then, I understand, deviations do require some permission and go-ahead from the bosses. 🙂

Well, how about a shelved and incomplete film.? Yes, we do have many such representations also. So, what’s unique about today’s song? Ok, the interesting thing about today’s song is that it is

  1. From an unreleased/incomplete/shelved film
  2. Recording of the song is not available
  3. The singer has sung the song in a concert

With this background, I bring forth a song sung in a concert by Mukesh from the film ‘Chalaak’ (some sources attribute the making year to 1966) which never saw the light of the day. Not much information is available about this film on the web, but I happened to find a very interesting and detailed article of this film authored by one Mr Karan Bali, and posted on the blog named ‘Upper Stall’. Here is the link to the full article – https://upperstall.com/features/incomplete-films-chalaak/.

Since the story behind the incomplete film is important, I am copy pasting the relevant paras from the same article. Readers are requested to read his detailed article from the link above as it also has some rare photographs taken during the shooting of this incomplete film. The sad tale of this film is linked with the equally sad life story of Madhubala, who was the heroine in this film.

Sometime around 1964, once she felt a little better, Madhubala decided to make a comeback and finish her work on yet another film that was stalled for quite some time, called Chalaak, where she was cast opposite Raj Kapoor. The film was being produced and directed by JK Nanda, who had directed singing star KL Saigal’s last film Parwana (1947), besides having worked with Madhubala earlier in films like Singaar (1949) and Dhake Ki Malmal (1956). The film also starred Agha, Om Prakash and Jeevan, while the music for the film was being scored by Raj Kapoor regulars Shankar-Jaikishan. According to the July 15, 1960 issue of Screen, some ten reels were in the can by then. Some more filming took place before Madhubala’s ailment again brought the film to a halt. It is said that she collapsed on the sets and was advised strict bed rest thereafter. Still determined to finish it, sometime around 1966, Madhubala again made a valiant attempt to complete the film. Stills of her from the film show just how ill she was, her still-beautiful face looking shrunken and heavily made up, a deep sadness in those famous twinkling eyes.

However, the physical effort to complete Chalaak proved too much for the actress. The film shut down shop for good. It was all the more tragic as it is said that Chalaak had just a few more filming days left. And in less than 3 years after its shelving, the Venus of the Indian screen left this world on February 23, 1969, when just 36. . .

While no records of the film’s music came out, Mukesh did sing a song from the film at some of his concerts. At one such function in the 1960s, he declared the film had not released but would soon be seen in the theatres. As we know that never happened. . .

The film never got released, however one solitary recording of Mukesh singing this song at a concert in Mombasa (Kenya) is thankfully available. I was aware of this song and had also heard it a few times on the net. But, for the reasons mentioned above regarding the rules of the blog, I was under the impression that I may not be entertained for posting it on the blog. However, when I was offered to represent this concert song, I grabbed it with both the hands. I thank Atul ji and Sudhir ji for giving me an opportunity to represent this unique song on the blog.

In connection with the writing of this post, I was also in touch with Shri Harish ji of Surat who as usual was quite prompt in his help and replies. I thank him for the help rendered.

I do not want to promise but can assure readers that the comet will appear soon again. 🙂

Hindi Songs in Bangla Film – 28

‘Subhash Chandra’ (1966, Bangla film) as the name suggests was one of many films on the life of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. The coverage of this film was from the school days of Netaji to his first-time arrest in 1921 for civil disobedience. The film ends with a scene in which Netaji is taking leave of his father and mother before he is formally arrested and taken to the jail in a police van. It is an anecdotal film covering the important events in the life of a young Subhash Chandra Bose up to 1921. Hindi dubbed version of the film with the same title was released in 1978. The main events in the early life of Subhash Chandra Bose covered in the film is summarised below:

Subhash Chandra who has joined a primary missionary school with English and Latin, gets the admission in the secondary school which is not a missionary school. His new teacher makes fun of him for not knowing Bangla and Sanskrit. The young Subhash assures the teacher that he would learn both Bangla and Sanskrit in two days which he does. The Head Master of his secondary school becomes Subhash Chandra’s ideal. He learns from him the works of Swami Ramkrishna Paramhans and Swami Vivekanand. Subhash Chandra studied vedas, upnishads, Ramayan, Mahabharat, Geeta, Bible and many other scriptures. His first leaning towards political activities was in 1912 when King George V visited Calcutta (Kolkata).

Subhash gets rusticated from the college for attacking a professor and in this process losses a couple of years in studies. He is reinstated by another college on the recommendation of a High Court lawyer who put a condition that Subhash Chandra should stand first in the merit list of the college. He clears BA with first class, standing second in the merit list. He is also active in University’s unit of Indian Territorial Army.

The film also shows the difference between Subhash Chandra and his lawyer-father who wants him to become an ICS officer and to join the Government service. After the Jullianwala Baagh massacare, Subhash Chandra is not ready to go to England to become ICS. But one of his relatives convinces him to take up ICS just to know the British system. Though Subhash Chandra passed ICS standing fourth in the merit list, within few months from joining ICS, he resigns from ICS much against the wishes of his father. Subhash Chandra pursues the profession of teacher and journalist. Later, under the guidance of Chitranjan Das, he plunges into full time political activities leading the nationalist movements under the ambit of Indian National Congress.

There are some more incidences in the life of Subhash Chandra Bose covered in the film. I guess, the aim of the film was to show a strong character of Subhash Chandra Bose, built over a period of time since his school days.

The film has been presented with a sleek screen play and dialogues without over-emphasising on patriotism. Particularly, I liked one dialogue in the film which I need to explain the background before one can appreciate it.

Subhash Chandra Bose, after the completion of matriculation, wanted to become a sage for which he was in search of a Guru. He travelled to Banaras, Mathura, Haridwar and beyond but came back disappointed. After successfully completion of training in Indian Territorial Army, he wanted to become a soldier in Indian Army which he shares his ambition with his friend. His friend comments ‘From a sage to a soldier? Two extremes. To which Subhash Chandra Bose reacts ‘I want to become a sage-like soldier and a soldier-like sage – a sage’s sacrifice and a soldier’s courage’. Incidentally, he did try to get selected in Bengal Regiment but was rejected for bad eyesight.

‘Subhash Chandra’ (1966) was directed by Pijush Bose. The star cast included Amar Dutta, Samar Chatterjee, Master Aashish Ghosh, Dilip Roy, Reba Devi etc. There were six songs in the film of which one song is in Hindi. All the songs were set to music by Aparesh Lahiri. As mentioned earlier, a dubbed version in Hindi with the same title was released in 1978 with Aparesh Lahiri as music director.

I am presenting the Hindi song ‘nahi maane jiyara hamaar’ which is based on a traditional Thumri with, more or less, on the same words. The song is sung by Bansari Lahiri. The use of ‘barse bahaar’ in the lyrics gives an impression of the song being a Kajri. Bansari Lahiri is a Hindustani classical singer and musician and the wife of the music director, Aparesh Lahiri. Music director, Bappi Lahiri is their only son. Interestingly, I find Bansari Lahiri has been accredited as Assistant Music Director to Bappi Lahiri in as many as 22 films from 1975 to 1990.

The part of the song has been played in the background with a low volume of sound as Subhash Chandra and his group are inside Nasipur Palace in Murshidabad. The same song has been used in the Hindi dubbed version of the film ‘Subhash Chandra’ (1978). So, it is one song used in both Bangla and Hindi versions of the film.

Hindi songs in Bangla Films: 27
—————————————–

One of the many Bangla films in which Uttam Kumar paired with Supriya Devi was ‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970). The film was directed by Agragami. The star cast included Uttam Kumar, Supriya Devi, Nirmal Kumar, Deepa Chatterjee, Asit Baran, Tarun Kumar, Bimal Mitra etc. I have watched the film with English sub-titles on an OTT platform.  The film’s English sub-titles are not as good as they ought to be. They are also not properly synchronized with the scenes. Within these limitations, I could make out the story of the film as under:

Mriganka (Uttam Kumar), an upcoming painter, falls in love with Aditi (Supriya Devi), the singer during their college days. After the completion of college, they decide to get married. Aditi belongs to Christian family with a good financial status in the society whereas Mriganka belongs to an orthodox Hindu middle class family. There is opposition from both the families due to different religious and social status. Both of them get married against the wishes of their respective family. However, Aditi’s father gives some initial financial support to set up the house and also send with them Judith (Deepa Chatterjee), an orphan who has been staying with Aditi’s family since childhood, to support the newly married couple in household work.

With the help of the initial financial support from Aditi’s father, Mriganka gets a large house at a very high rent. He also furnishes the house by buying costly furniture and fixtures. In a short period of their marriage, Mriganka has spent all the money his father-in-law has given to his daughter. He has no income as he is yet to establish himself as a painter of repute. Hence his paintings remain unsold in the exhibitions. Soon, there is a financial crisis for the newly married couple.

Both Mriganka and Aditi meet their common friend Subroto (Nirmal Kumar) to get his guidance as to how to come out of their financial mess. Based on his advice, they move to a smaller house to reduce the rent outgo. Aditi who has been trained in Hindustani classical music decides to take singing as a career and becomes the radio singer. She earns her fees but not enough to run the house. Mriganka is not able to sell his paintings. So, Subroto helps him getting a job in the office. However, being a painter at heart, office work does not interest him. Within short time, he leaves the office job.

In the meanwhile, Aditi has become a famous singer. The gramophone records of her songs are sold like hot cake. She becomes very busy in her singing assignments. She has now become a celebrity. Both are now comfortable on their financial front. However, Mriganka is not able to sell any of his paintings despite getting favourable critical reviews of his paintings. He is not prepared to compromise on the subject of his paintings by which the art lovers can be enticed. Out of frustration, there is constant frictions between Mriganka and Aditi on trivial issues. Mriganka who has been a teetotaler and a non-smoker becomes an alcoholic.  The matter reaches a stage when Aditi misunderstands Mriganka in the company of a female model in her house as a muse for his painting. In the background of intense arguments, Mriganka decides to leave the house. Eventually, Mriganka and Aditi get divorce.

While Aditi’s singing career is on the upper trajectory, Mriganka’s luck is not in his favour. He decides to try his luck out of India by participating in the painting exhibitions in Europe. Despite having differences with his father, Mariganka was fortunate that at the time of the death, his father has left him   his share of savings which has come handy now to finance his trip to Europe. However, Mriganka returns to India without any success in Europe. His health has already started deteriorating forcing him to give up painting.

One day, while coming out of the church, Judith sees Mriganka walking on the road looking very sick. She takes him to her house and nurses him for few days until he recovers from his ill health. Even after that Judith visits Mriganka’s house daily to take care of his food and other daily routine. This information gets passed on to Aditi when Subroto meets her. She gets upset over the ‘scandalous’ relations between Judith and Mriganka but dismisses this information as of no concern to her.

Mriganka gets married to Judith and he is back to painting due to her encouragement. But at the back of her mind, Judith feels that she is indirectly responsible for the separation of Aditi and Mriganka as she had given a false testimony to the divorce court that she had affairs with Mriganka in order to hasten the divorce proceedings under instructions from him. Judith suffers a miscarriage and she dies in the hospital. Aditi attends the burial of Judith where Mriganka and his friend Subroto are present.

The film ends with a scene in which Aditi and Mriganka come out of the burial ground. He is about to go his way when Aditi stops him. Mriganka crosses the road with the support of Aditi holding his hand.

This film is one more example in Bangla films of ending scene being indeterminate leaving it to the audience to interpret in their own way. The first interpretation could be that it was a mere courtesy to help Mriganka to cross the road and drop him in his house in her car. Another interpretation could be that by supporting him to cross the road by holding his hand, they are united as a couple. The third interpretation which looks more probable to me is that Aditi has decided to extend her emotional support to Mriganka after the death of Judith and they remain friends.

At the outset, I thought that the story of the film is akin to Hindi film ‘Abhimaan’ (1973) in which the husband and wife who are professional singers get separated because of ego clashes. But at the end, there is an emotional reunion between the two.

In my view, in ‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970), there are no explicit ego clashes between their respective professions or between man and woman.  Even if it is there, the director has kept that at the low key. The friction points between Mriganka and Aditi arise because the former is not able to spend much time with the latter as she is quite busy in her professional work. Aditi has problem with Mriganka because he spends money on things which are not priorities like alcohol when his own earnings are not enough to get two meals a day. Neither Mriganka has problem with Aditi’s professional pursuit nor Aditi is concerned about Mriganka not able to earn income.

In the height of their frictions, it is Mriganka who decides to go for divorce to give Aditi the space in her professional pursuit. He also knows that she will not divorce him. So, he creates an impression that he has affairs with Judith to get the divorce faster. In sums, I feel that the director has handled the subject with delicate balance, avoiding the label of a feminist to Aditi and a male chauvinist to Mriganka.

‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970) has 5 songs of which one is in Hindi. The song which I am presenting is “Mann Kahaan Laago Mora Chain Ganwaayi Diyo Re’ which is a duet sung by Manna Dey and Aarti Mukherjee. The song is written by Gulzar which is set to music by Nachiketa Ghosh.

The situation of the song is that after becoming popular singer in Bangla songs, a new music director has taken Aditi for the first time to sing a Hindi song to test it in the market. His idea is that if successful, he wants her to accompany him to Mumbai to make her popular in Hindi songs which will also benefit the music director in pursuing his career in Mumbai. However, with so much happening with her in personal front, Aditi finally declines to move out of Kolkata. In real life also, Supriya Devi, after working in Mumbai for 3 films – Begaana’ (1963), ‘Aap Ki Parchhaayian’ (1964) and ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaaon Mein’ (1964), she bid farewell to Bollywood. It is said that she refused Raj Kapoor’s offer to her of a role in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) which eventually went to Simi.

Today (7 may 2020) is the 159th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore (7 May 1861- 7 August 1941).

Everyone knows a lot about Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. He was not just a Nobel Prize winning poet, his acccomplishments, achievements and influence go much more farther than that. Curiously, his influence on our life is often subtle and goes unnoticed. But it is very much there.

He has influenced Indian movies, including Hindi movies as well. He was in fact the person writing the national anthem of India (and subsequently Bangladesh as well). The national anthem of India was already included in a Hindi movie called “Hamraahi”(1945) beore it could become national anthem. So, Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore got credited as a lyricist and music director in this Hindi movie posthumously, but before India could achieve her independence.

Rabindranath Tagore created a modern genre of Bangla music that took elements of Western music (western instruments, western notations etc) and combined it with the traditional folk music of Bangla. This fusion is today known as Rabindrasangeet. He himself created about 2000 songs based on Rabindrasangeet.

While most of these songs were non film songs, quite a few such songs were created for Bangla films. Even some Hindi movies had such songs, where tune remained same but lyrics were translated in Hindi.

The above mentioned “Hamraahi”(1945), which was the Hindi remake of ‘Udayare Pathe’ (1944), has a Bangla Rabindrasangeet song, something which the original Bangla movie did not have ! This song was recently covered by Mr Sadanand Kamath in the blog.

“Maa Beta”(1962) was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Tasweeristan, Bombay. This “social” movie had Nirupa Roy, Ameeta, Manoj Kumar, Vijay Dutt, Sheila Ramani, I S Johar, Lalita Pawar, Manmohan Krishna, Tarun Bose, Kumar, Manorama, Leela Mishra, Indra Bansal, Neelam, Shukla, Brahmdutt, Raj Prakash, Madhumati, Shaam Lala etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Maa Beta” (1962) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

The picturisation shows Nirupa Roy seated on a stage and lip syncing this song while holding a sitar. A lady dressed in Bharatnatyam dancing costume performs a dance on this song. I am unable to identify the dancing lady. I request our knowledgeable to help identify her.

The music is south Indian style, as is the dance. Our regulars may wonder what this song has to do with Rabindra sangeet. It is the lyrics ! The lyrics are a very good translation of the original Bangla Rabindrasangeet song, Momomor megher sangi. Listening to the original Bangla Rabindrasangeet song shows that the tune is entirely different, even though music director is the same, viz Hemant Kumar. Hemant Kumar very wisely decided to use the essence of the lyrics, and created an entirely new tune for the movie, as required by the story line.

I noticed (as I was reminded of it by a few regulars) that today is the remembrance day of Prem Dhawan (13 June 1923- 7 may 2001) as well. So it is quite fortuitous that today we discuss a song that turns put to be a two-in- one tribute for two artists.

So, as a tribute to gurudev Rabindranath Tagore on the occasion of this birth anniversary, and Prem Dhawan on the occasion of his remembrance day, here is a Rabindrasangeet inspired song from the golden era of HFM.


Song-Man mera udta jaaye (Maa Beta)(1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

man mera udta jaaye
baadal ke sang door gagan mein
aaj nashe mein gaata geet milan ke re ae
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim
man mera udta jaaye
baadal ke sang door gagan mein
aaj nashe mein gaata geet milan ke re ae
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim

aas ke pankh lagaa kar panchhi mastaana
pi ki nagariya aaj chala dil deewaana
aas ke pankh lagaa kar panchhi mastaana
pi ki nagariya aaj chala dil deewaana
ghan ghan baadal garje to kya
cham cham bijli chamke to kya
chanchal man to rukna kahin na jaane re
man mera udta jaaye
baadal ke sang door gagan mein
aaj nashe mein gaata geet milan ke re ae
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim

uthti hain jaise saagar mein
kal kal chhal chhal karti tarangen
uthhti hain jaise saagar mein
kal kal chhal chhal karti tarangen
man mein waise hi jaag rahin
pal pal vyaakul mast umangen
aaj na roko pyaar ke is deewaane ko
haathon se dil jaata hai to jaane do
aaj na roko pyaar ke is deevaane ko
haathon se dil jaata hai to jaane do
tod chala ye bandhan saare
jahaan sajan ka pyaar pukaare
paagal hai man kab ye kisi ki maane re
man mera udta jaaye
baadal ke sang door gagan mein
aaj nashe mein gaata geet milan ke re ae
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim

achcha yahi hota

Only two songs from “Anmol Moti”(1969) have been covered in the blog. So there is choice of as many as four songs today as “Blog Ten Year Challenge” post. As it is, Prakashchandra as well as Avinash Scrapwala both sent songs for this challenge, and they sent different songs ! Prakashchandra sent his contribution earlier, so I am going with the song sent by him as “Blog Ten Year Challenge” post.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

This is one song that I have listened to a lot of time. It is one of those iconic songs that I used to listen to during my formative years, even though I had no clue what movie these songs were from. I have listened to this song many a times, on loudspeakers as well as Radio. It is only now, more than 50 years later, on this day 25 April 2020 that I have come to know that this iconic song is from “Anmol Moti”(1969). I can be that kind of a tubelight. 🙂

The song is picturised as a boat/ river song on Babita, with Jeetendra also making a belated appearance. Many other ladies (who appear like foreigners, perhaps from Soviet Union) are also seen in the picturisation, performing synchronised swimming, underwater swimming etc.

As mentioned earlier, lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra, who pips Avinash Scrapwala to the post for this “Blog Ten Year Challenge” opportunity.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 23
—————————————————————————
I could not send any write-up from my side on Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth anniversary this year on 08th March. However, I had shared few songs and had compiled an excel sheet on Sahir Ludhianvi’s filmography with the respective music directors, which I intend to use for future posts on the blog as and when possible.

While noting down the movies and number of songs from each movie, I came across the today’s songs or rather this ‘couplet recitation’ song from the movie ‘Dil Hi Toh Hai’ (1963). This song has been mentioned in the list of songs by Sahir Ludhianvi in Akshay Manwani’s book ‘Sahir Ludhianvi – The People’s Poet’. HFGK Vol IV (1961-1970) though does not mention this song in the list of songs under this movie. HFGK mentions ten songs in the movie which have already been posted on the blog.

When I searched for the audio/video of this extra song mentioned in Akshay Manwani’s book it was already available. So, we have an opportunity to bring this ‘couplet recitation’ on the blog today under ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ (since one song from this movie was posted on the blog on 23.04.2010). As this movie has already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog the today’s song comes as ‘bonus’ for all of us to listen and enjoy.

I am presenting this beautiful song here which is lip synced on screen by the beautiful Nutan. In the movie this song happens just before the song ‘Tum Agar Mujhko Naa Chaaho To Koi Baat Nahin’ or rather it is after this ‘teasing’ song of today by the heroine Jamila Bano (Nutan), that the hero Chand Sahab of the movie (Raj Kapoor) gets ‘provoked’ (or inspired ? 😉) to sing ‘tum agar mujhko naa chaaho’…

The situation is that Jamila Bano is a great fan of singer Chand Sahab but she had not met him and there is a party on the birth anniversary of her friend Pushpa where Chand Sahab is suppose to attend the party. However, incidentally they both came across in shop where they intend to buy the ‘birthday gift’. Jamila Bano and her ‘sahelis’, unaware of who this fellow is misake Chand Sahab for a ‘loafer’ (badmaash, peechhaa karne waala😊 ) and when they see the same fellow also following them at the party venue, and when her friends ask Jamila Bano to say something, she recites this she’r directed at Chand Sahab. After this when Chand Sahab is invited to sing Jamila Bano is surprised but Chand Sahab also took this opportunity and he sings

tum agar mujhko naa chaaho to koi baat nahin,
tum kisi aur ko chaahogi to mushqil hogi
😊

‘Dil Hi To Hai’ was jointly directed by PL Santoshi and CL Rawal for ‘Rawal Films’, Bombay. It was produced by BL Rawal. It had Raj Kapoor, Nutan, Agha, Nazir Husain, Leela Chitnis, Babloo, Padmini Priyadarshani, Sabita Chatterjee, Shivraj, Manorama, Mumtaz, Hari Shivdasani and Pran. The story, screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by GL Rawal. Editing was done by Pran Mehra.

Lyrics for this movie were written by Sahir Ludhianvi and music was composed by Roshan. Lata Mangeshkar, Mukesh, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above the movie has total ten songs as listed below and if we include the today’s ‘couplet-song’ it makes eleven songs in this movie.

Song – Aap Abhi Ishq Ki Tehzeeb Se Aagaah Nahin (Dil Hi To Hai)(1963) Singer – Nutan, Lyrics – Sahir Ludhianvi, MD – Roshan

Lyrics

aap abhi ishq ki tehzeeb se
aagaah nahin
aap abhi ishq ki tehzeeb se
aagaah nahin
aap se mel badhaane ki
hamen chaah nahin

[Dialogues]

aap se pyaar karey koyi
aap se pyaar karey koyi ee
to kyun pyaar karey ae
aap se pyaar karey koyi ee
to kyun pyaar karey ae

aap ki shaql to kya
baat bhi dil-khwaah nahin

Devnagri Script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
—————————————————————————————–

आप अभी इश्क कि तहज़ीब से
आगाह नहीं
आप अभी इश्क कि तहज़ीब से
आगाह नहीं
आप से मेल बढ़ाने कि
हमें चाह नहीं

[संवाद]

आप से प्यार करे कोई
आप से प्यार करे कोई ई
तो क्यूँ प्यार करे ए
आप से प्यार करे कोई ई
तो क्यूँ प्यार करे ए
आप कि शक्ल तो क्या
बात भी दिल-ख्वाह नहीं
