Asha Bhonsle sang three out of four songs in the movie. All these three songs were picturised as cabarat dance songs, but on three different actresses. This song under discussion is picturised on Madhumati. One can also see Sanjeev Kumar, Shetty, Faryal etc in the picturisation.

Here is the eighth and final song from “Holiday in Bombay”(1963) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by N Datta.

Only the audio of the song is available. The uploader describes it as a rare song, but I remember having listened to this song is the past. It is an archtypical “Chaayaageet” song which is an ideal song to listen to during night time, with most people already asleep. Though it must be said that people now a days do not sleep even at “Chaayaageet” time. 🙂

With this song, “Holiday in Bombay”(1963) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Pyaar ki chaandni dil ki dushman bani (Holiday in Bombay)(1963) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-N Datta

Lyrics

Pyaar ki chaandni

Pyaar ki chaandni

agar tum door door ho
Pyaar ki chaandni

“Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) was produced by K L Baria and Johny Whisky and directed by B R Ishara for Varsha Films, Bombay. This “social”movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Sanjeev Kumar, Jairaj, Asit Sen, Sailesh Kumar, Johny Whiskey, Tarun Bose, Mohan Choti, Kumkum etc in it.

This obscure movie had six obscure songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song picturisation shows the hero (I guess he is Sailesh Kumar) lip syncing this teasing song to Kumkum. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lip syncer.

With this song, “Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Hans do to muhabbat ho tum (Gunaah Aur Kaanoon)(1970) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Here is the seventh song from “Holiday in Bombay”(1963) to appear in the blog. HFGK is silent about the identity of the singers as well as the lyricist.

Listening to the song, it is clear that the song is sung by Rafi, Balbir and chorus. Video of the song is available which shows that this song is lip synced by Shashi Kapoor and Rajendranath in a get together situation. This song is supposedly a Lord Krishn bhajan but it is actually an “expression of love” song sung by our hero and his side kick for their respective love interests.

The uploader has mentioned Anjaan as the lyricist and I have gone with that.

Music is composed by N Datta.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the various actors who are visible in the picturisation of the song.

So, minus 1 and plus 1, we still got to the 100th Yippeee film yesterday.

Minus 1 because on 3rd April, Atul ji had announced the Yippeee-ing of the film ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983), after posting its ‘sixth + seventh’ songs together – an announcement that turned out to be incorrect. Avinash ji pointed out that there is still one more song to be posted from this film. With some more leg work and info-search we now have more detailed info about the song list of this film. Below is the details of the songs of ‘Razia Sultan’ that I had shared with Atul ji the same day, in email.

I just checked the 1981-90  volume compiled by Jagdish Purohit and Ghulam Qureshi, with the involvement of Suman Chaurasia of Indore. This volume was published as the HFM lovers were/are waiting for Hamraaz ji to bring out his next volume.

In this volume, the compilers have listed 12 songs for this film. Since ‘Razia Sultan’ is a well known film, and a landmark in itself, I am sure lots of information sources are available and there is less chance that the compilers would be in error. In a musical film like this, number of songs certainly would not be limited to 6/7.

The list of all songs, as per this volume, is

  1. Ae Dil e Nadaan
  2. Aayi Zanjeer Ki Jhankar
  3. Naghma e Mohabbat
  4. Jalta Hai Badan
  5. Hariyala Banna
  6. Ae Khuda Shukr Tera
  7. Khwaab Ban Kar Koi Aayega
  8. Tera Hijr Mera Naseeb Hai
  9. Taraana e Jashn e Taajpsohi
  10. Shubh Ghadi Aayi Re
  11. Ae Dil e Nadaan (this may be part 2, or a reprisal)
  12. Falak Se Awaaz Hai

As per our blog listing, we have as yet covered 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and possibly 11. As per the singer list, the songs 9 and 10 seem to important loaded songs; 9 has 4 singers and 10 has 6 singers. Both these songs have Ustad Faiyaaz Ahmed Khan, and Ustad Niaz Ahmed Khan in the list of singers.

Just like maybe Pakeezaah, the remaining songs are probably less heard, less popular ones, which may drop from the collective memory.  You may recall that the non-Ghalib items in Mirza Ghalib (3 in number) remained obscure for quite a long time, since the radio and the radio listening public focused on the Ghalib creations in this film.

So that was minus 1 for 3rd April.

However, Atul ji is quick to also point out that back on 16th Jan, we had actually Yippeee’d two films together on the same day. That had happened, because both Atul ji and I were separately working on two different Yippeee posts, and our communications to each other regarding the posts seemed to have crossed but not read by each other. So in quick succession, both he and I posted two Yippeee songs that day – “Gaadi Dilli Waali Chali” (‘Delhi Junction’, 1960) and “Soyi Soyi Chaandni Hai. . .” (‘Khazaana’, 1951). In his write up, Atul ji has noted that,

Coming to my observations that we need to reiterate our new year resolutions (Gregorian calender version) on new year (Hindu calender version) as well. On the first day of this year (viz Yesterday 15 january 2018), only the first half of the half the resolution (viz posting a debutant song for the day) was fulfilled till late in the night. Sudhir Ji had posted a “debutant” post for the day. I had noticed that he had planned for a “YIPPEE” post as well. But seeing that the “debutant” post had appeared so late, I was afraid that it might become a race against time to fully fulfil the new year resolution. So I decided to lend a helping hand to Sudhir Ji. I prepared this “YIPPEE” writeup and I decided to post it in case Sudhir Ji was strapped for time (which he certainly is these days).

Fortunately, I found that Sudhir Ji succeeded in posting the YIPPEE writeup just in the nick of time yesterday night, and it was that rollicking title song of “China Town”(1962), viz. Rangeen bahaaron se hai gulzaar China Town.

So the song that I had kept as the backup YIPPEE song was not required.

Today (16 january 2018), we find ourself in the same situation as yesterday. The “debutant” movie of the day was done and dusted with first thing in the morning by Sudhir Ji. Sudhir Ji then asked me for the list of YIPPiable movies, aiming to post the YIPPEE movie of today as well, while I concentrated on the O P Nayyar tribute post.

After the O P Nayyar tribute post was published late, I found that Sudhir Ji has prepared for the YIPPEE song of the day, and it was a song that was not available online as far as I can tell. But like last night, we are against racing against time and I do not find Sudhir Ji at the keyboard right now. So I feel that I need to step in and publish the backup YIPPEE song that I had prepared yesterday. That way, Sudhir Ji can publish his YIPPEE article on the next day.

In fact, as Atul ji was hastening to complete the above Yippeee post for that day, I was equally busy on my keyboard, and almost simultaneously – a difference of about 45 minutes, I too posted the Yippeee post for the day, only to realize immediately that the work is now duplicated. So I immediately went back into my post and added this footnote,

[Ed Note: It was only after this song got posted that I took a breather, only to notice that Atul ji has also already welcomed another film (the previous post) to Yippeee-land today. It most certainly seems like the ‘yippeee-ing hour’, what with two films racing to Yippeee-land, just within minutes of each other. 😀 😀 ]

So, the two miscues cancelled each other out, and we are firmly able to announce that 100 Yippeee films have happened in the first 100 days of this calendar year (Gregorian). 🙂

Now, moving beyond the century yesterday, we come to ‘IOI’ of the Yippeee train today. Atul ji had posted the penultimate song of this film yesterday. Yes, I refer to the 1965 film ‘Sangraam’ – a film that has a full list of very memorable songs. This film made its debut on our blog way back on 12th Nov, 2010. Just see the list below of the songs posted so far. Each one of these songs is a veritable gem – in a mood that is so representative of the music of the 1960s.

Main To Tere Haseen Khayaalon Mein Kho Gayaa Sangraam 1965 3195 12-Nov-10
Masti Mein Doley Jiyaa Ho Sangraam 1965 4270 25-Jul-11
Dam Dam Dam Dam Damroo Baaje Sangraam 1965 10405 25-Oct-14
O Tera Chhup Chhup Ke Chale Aana Sangraam 1965 14093 23-Feb-18
Nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re Sangraam 1965 14255 10-Apr-18

These songs represent a music that was full of verve, full of energy, full of a joyous expression of love, taking in a lot of influence of the western rock and pop genres. Rhythm was more or less the dominant temper of this music, which was made for a popular taste that was already initiated by an increasing influence of western rhythms on the young minds of this nation. The decade of the 1960s was the time when the joys of freedom and the pain of partition were both tending to fade into paler shades, getting better of the passing generations.

The film is produced under the banner of Film India, Bombay, and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The cast of actors includes Dara Singh, Geetanjali, Randhawa, Swarn Kumari, Maruti, Aruna Irani, Uma Dutt, Ratnamala, Mridula, Vishwas Kunte, Amrit Rana, Yunus Parvez, Baijnath, Helen, and King Kong.

After his earlier cameo appearances in films of 1950s, the first lead role that Dara Singh landed was in the film ‘King Kong’ of 1962. This was followed by ‘Aawaara Abdullah’ in 1963, then ‘Ek Tha Alibaba’, ‘King of Carnival’, ‘Rustom e Baghdad’, also 1963. In 1964, we see him in ‘Aandhi Aur Toofaan’, ‘Aaya Toofaan’, ‘Hercules’, ‘Dara Singh’ (yes, a film titled after his own name), ‘Rustom e Rome’, ‘Baadshah’, ‘Veer Bhimsen’. So when we come to 1965, Dara Singh has already appeared in a lead role in 12 films in just three years. The reason I am making this observation is that when I viewed this film in preparation for this post, I found a very interesting aspect. In this film, he is accompanied in the star cast by his younger brother Randhawa. The two brothers have already appeared together in ‘Aawaara Abdullah’, ‘Hercules’ and ‘Veer Bhimsen’. This is their fourth film together. As I viewed this film, I realized that the dialogues of both are dubbed in voices other than their own. I have not had time to sample once again his earlier films (some of which I know I have seen earlier) to ascertain whether this dubbing aspect is present in any of his earlier films. I do remember reading, well a long time back, that in the initial years of his career, his diction of Hindi/Urdu dialogues was less than desirable, as his voice had a very strong Punjabi accent to it. But I did not realize that he would be going through more than a dozen films and still be required to have his dialogues dubbed. The voice of the dubbing artist is very familiar, but I am not able to place a name to it right now.

The film is a costume drama with a strong element of palace intrigues and lost and found siblings stories. The corrupt Wazir (prime minister) has the king assassinated, and usurps the throne for himself. The king has two sons. The nanny for the two children is able to escape the bloodshed in the palace, along with one of the princes. The Wazir kind of adopts the second son, and raises him on a diet of lies and misinformation, hiding the truth about the death of the king, his father. The Wazir has a daughter, whom he wants to get married to the prince-in-custody. The prince-in-custody also fancies the lady. But the lady had lost her heart to a commoner in one of the villages in the kingdom, during some interludes that are very conveniently created by the story writers. The person she fancies, is actually the other prince, who had been taken away by the nanny and was raised by her in anonymity. So the tale of this film is about how the two brothers at first are enemies on account of fancying the same lady; then some way through the film, the truth about siblings is revealed and they become a team to vanquish the scheming Wazir and reclaim their father’s kingdom. And yes, the younger sibling gracefully steps aside for his elder brother to take over. 🙂

The one more interesting thing that I note about this film is the long drawn fighting sequences. Regular fans of Dara Singh films will recall the name King Kong. Yes, we had a wrestler by this name in that era when freestyle wrestling was a hugely popular spectator sport with the likes of Dara Singh, Randhawa, Goldstein, Imam Bux, Sheikh Ali, Hamida Pehalwan and of course the Great Gama Pehalwan etc. being the big names billed for such events. Believe it or not, but that was an era when for a freestyle wrestling match between some great names, one could expect anywhere from 1 Lakh to 2 Lakh spectators to be present (a Lakh is 100,000).

King Kong was a hugely bulky wrestler. His real name was Emile Czaja, and he was of mixed Indian – Australian descent, born in Hungary. He became a professional wrestler in the sub-continent and also appeared for bouts in all of south east Asia and Japan etc. Like Dara Singh he also migrated into Hindi films during the late 1950s and 60s, and appeared in many films generally as part of the villain’s team that would give a thrashing the heores to start with, and then at the end, get a beating of their lives at the hands of the lead wrestler. On YouTube, there are a few video footage clips of actual wrestling matches between Dara Singh and King Kong. Both of them appeared in many Hindi films together.

King Kong makes an appearance in this film also, as one of the henchmen of the devious Wazir. He has an additional significant presence in this film, as he also plays the father to the the young lady (Aruna Irani) who is the love interest of Maruti, the sidekick of Dara Singh in the film, making up a very detailed CSP (comic side plot). He fights on the side of the baddies, but eventually gives in to the goodies, since his daughter is in love with one of the goodies team member.

Ah yes, so I was talking about the long drawn out fight sequences in the film. They begin to appear almost from the start of the film, continue regularly throughout. Given these segments, the CSP and the songs, the actual story and dialogues have very little room to maneuver themselves. Everything other than the fight sequences seem to be in a hurry to get themselves done with. 🙂

Today’s song is the sixth song in the film. And what a rollicking dance song this one is. The trio of music directors – Lala Asar and Sattaar seem to be outdoing themselves in getting through the songs of this film. The song is filmed as a group dance song. The occasion is that the Wazir’s daughter has fled her father’s palace, choosing to come to the village where Dara Singh resides with his mother (actually his nanny from the royal babyhood days). The Wazir’s soldiers are chasing her, and they have been given a good beating by Dara Singh, Maruti and their team. This song is a celebration of their victory. We see Dara Singh and Geetanjali (Wazir’s daughter) and Dara Singh’s ‘mother’ seated prominently amongst the audience watching this performance. Maruti is part of this group dance. The video clip that is available is somewhat out of focus, on account of colors being splayed a little, as the photochemicals on the celluloid have aged. The face of the lead dancer is not very clear, and before I hazard a guess as to her identity, I request other friends and readers to please help identify this actress.

Enjoy this final song from this film to make it on to the billboard of our blog. And with that, we announce the Yippeee-dom status to this film. All aboard.

The eighth and final song from “Mr India”(1961) is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi, alongwith chorus. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kphli.

Only the audio of the song is available. It sounds like a dance song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Mr India”(1961) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Today (10 march 2018) is the 100th day of the year 2018. We have been seeing one movie attaining YIPPEEHOOD everyday from the first day of the year 2018 . This streak lasted till 2 april 2018. I posted what I thought a “YIPPEE” song on 3 april 2018 as well, but it was pointed out the next day that the movie had more songs. So the YIPPEE streak came to an end, but that was not because of any lack of effort or motivation on our part. We have since resumed the one one YIPPEE movie per day routine once again.

There was one day (16 january 2018) when two YIPPEE movies had been covered. So in effect, we have YIPPEED 100 movies in 100 days of the year and the movie “Mr India”(1961) is the 100th YIPPEED movie of 2018. So this is another of those “artificial” centuries milestones that we often achieve in the blog these days. 🙂

That is not the only “artificial” century distinction with this post. There is another. This movie becomes the 100th YIPEED movie in the blog whose title begins with the letter M. 🙂

“Sangraam”(1965) was directed by Babubhai Mistry for Film India, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Geetanjali, Randhawa, Swarn Kumari, Maruti, Aruna Irani, Uma Dutt, Ratnamala, Mridula, Vishwas Kunte, Amrit Rana, Yunus Parvez, Baijnath, Helen, King Kong etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Sangraam”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Aish Kanwal is the lyricist. Music is composed by Lala Asar Sattar.

The song is picturised on Geetanjali, as far as I can tell from the grainy picturisation of the song, who is sing singing and dancing alongwith her sahelis as Dara Singh is seen riding away in his horse.


Song-Nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re (Sangraam)(1965) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Aish Kanwal, MD-Lala Asar Sattar

Lyrics

ae ree jawaani hui hui dekho deewaani
ho dil tujh par hai naaj re haay raam
nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re ae

kaise bedardi se ankhiyaan ladi hain

o ji balam tujhko kaise manaayen
aaja baalam le loon teri balaayen
teri balaayen leke tujhko manaayen

Missing Films of 1960s – 64
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today, we bring on board another missing film from 1967. ‘Shamsheer’ is an obscure film, which many people won’t remember now. We become aware of such films, mostly through the Geet Kosh listings.

A film by the same name was also produce a decade or so earlier – in 1953. ‘Shamsheer’ – meaning a ‘sword’ – this word appears in the title of many films actually. There are films by the name ‘Shamsheerbaaz’ – in 1940 and 1953 (yes, in 1953, both ‘Shamsheer’ and ‘Shamsheerbaaz’ appeared in the same year). Then way back in 1935, we have another film titled ‘Shamsheer e Arab’.

The 1967 film ‘Shamsheer’ was produced under the banner of Sangram Pictures of Bombay, and and was directed by Babubhai Mistry. This film was costume drama. One look as the list of actors, and we realize this is a Sheikh Mukhtar film, with the list of actors reading as Prithviraj, Sheikh Mukhtar, Geetanjali, Ajeet Singh, Aruna Irani, Jeevan, Maruti, Helen, Madhumati, Lakshmichaya, Jeevankala, Ratnamala, Sarita, Uma Dutt, Paulson, Ridku, and Meenakshi.

Geet Kosh lists six songs for this film, which are written by four songwriters – two songs by Aish Kanwal, two by Asad Bhopali, one by Bharat Vyas and one by Madhukar Rajasthani. This song is written by Asad Bhopali. Music direction is by the duo of Lala-Sattaar. Readers are familiar with the trio of Lala-Asar-Sattaar. Of these, Lala and Sattaar also gave music together as a duo.

So presenting today, the first song of the 1967 film ‘Shamsheer’. It is a quick paced ‘nok jhonk’ type duet which is sung by Raf Sb and Shamshad Begum. I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information for this film and this song, if available.

Song – Aaj Ye Bijli Kahaan Giregi  (Shamsheer) (1967) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Lala Sattaar

Lyrics

haa haa

aaj ye bijli kahaan giregi
