A sad event that did not seem to gather much attention, occurred on Tuesday, 29th December, 2015. Legendary singer Subir Sen breathed his last in Calcutta (Kolkata). He was 81-years-old. The lovers of film music will remember him for his renditions in many Hindi and Bangla films.

‘आ’
“आप से दिल ही मांगा था जान तो नहीं”

Searching through the obscure and the unheard, we continue to encounter such fabulous creations that bring a gasp of pleasant surprise. Today, in the second installment of this new series of songs by Rafi Sb, I bring this exuberant song of ‘chhed chhaad’ from an unreleased film from the 1960s. The film is ‘Jaan Bachi Laakhon Paaye’. We have one song from this film already posted a little over one year ago – “Teri Zulf Mein Chun Ke Champa Ki Kaliyan”, another delightful creation, in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor and Sharda.

Dev Saab – the phenomena continues.  With coming newer generation, it may fade away.  But there is still many more generations to go before that can happen.

Remembering Dev Saab on the anniversary of his birth today – 26th September.  He would have been 92 years young today.  And I am sure, he is, wherever he maybe now.

Today (17 octobr 2014) is the birth anniversary of Simi Garewal (DoB 17 october 1947). If there is one person who can be described to be an ageless wonder then it has to be her. She has not changed much in appearance for over 50 years right from the time she made her debut in Hindi movies in 1962.

(1970s Unreleased – Duet)

Quite a coincidence today. This duet that I selected for this episode of the series, got inadvertently connected with an anniversary .

An amazing creation, this duet is. Film is ‘Sweetheart’, also from the early 1970s. The creators of this song are more familiar. The words are penned by Anand Bakshi and the music is created by Kalyanji Anandji. This film was launched with quite a filmi buzz, with the lead pair of Shashi Kapoor and Asha Parekh. I have some memory of reading something – maybe a promotional article, likely in the Filmfare magazine, way back then. Eventually, this film did not get done. The songs did get recorded. As per Geet Kosh, four songs are identified and probably more may exist. The list of songs is impressive, especially this duet and a solo by Mukesh (yet to be posted here). I remember these songs were played occasionally on the radio. It never did strike me that this film did not get released. As I checked the listings while preparing this series, I was a bit surprised to see this name in the list of unreleased films.

There are hundreds of gems of hindi film songs which I have not heard yet. I am talking about only the songs of Mohammad Rafi sahab here. It is obvious nobody can claim to have heard all the songs which include scores of wonderful songs of the golden era.

Remembering RD Burman on his 74th birth anniversary today.

RD Burman, the prince of the music composers in the 1970s and 80s, his music is considered to be the most significant factor behind the exceptional success of Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar in those decades. Starting his career with ‘Chhote Nawaab’ (1961), he has no other film to his credit as a music director till 1965, when he scored the music for ‘Bhoot Bangla’ and ‘Teesra Kaun’. But the phenomenal launch to his career would be in 1966, when he scored the songs for Nasir Hussain’s ‘Teesri Manzil’ – there was no looking back after that. If we take 1965 as the true starting point in his career, then from that year to 1994, when he passed away, he had scored music for more than 330 films. In an active career of three decades, that makes for an average of more than 10 films in a year, which is an extraordinary pace for a single person.

Continuing with the series of delightful but rare songs from Mukesh. This offering is a lovely heartfelt melody from an unreleased and obscure film from 1964, ‘Bhool Na Jaanaa’. The songs, that have thankfully not been lost, are a wonderful treat, and the credit goes to Daan Singh, who is the composer for this film. Practically all the songs of this film are gems of the first water, something that speaks to the unsung talent of this great musician from Jaipur. There are seven songs available from this unreleased film, three of which are already discussed on this blog, viz. “Mere Humnasheen Mere Humnawaan” sung by Geeta Dutt, “Gora Gora Mukhdaa Ye Tu Ne Kahaan Paayaa Hai” sung by Mukesh, and “Gham e Dil Kis Se Kahoon” also by Mukesh. The earlier posts include brief write ups about the circumstances of this film, and how it got shelved. A film about the 1962 war with China, it got entangled with the changed government policy in 1964-65 to not depict anything negative about China. And Daan Singh, a very talented musician, was branded unlucky with his very first venture itself.

Most songs posted in this blog are from movies that got released at some date. But there are cases where the makers of the movie were so broke that the movie never got released.
