Mukesh and his Composers – 22
——————————–

We pay tributes to legendary singer Mukesh on his Remembrance Day today (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976). His voice, songs, and the rich legacy left behind continues to be remembered and cherished by fans across the globe.

February 12, 1982, Music Director’s Association had organized a programme at Mumbai’s Shanmukhananda Auditorium to celebrate 50 years of sound in Indian Cinema. Off course, the mega event is now also fondly remembered for Noor Jahan’s only travel from across the border after partition and her active participation in it.

In the programme, anchor Shabana Azmi, while introducing the life and singing career of Mukesh says that for having such pathos and honestly in the voice, it is necessary that apart from being a good singer, the person himself has to be a noble soul. I liked her description of Mukesh immensely and hence including it in his special post for the day. This nobility of Mukesh and his good deeds for society and his co-workers, has been mentioned in quite a few of my previous posts.
For adherent Mukesh fans, it very easy to pick a sample of their most favorite songs for the simple reason that there exists no sample and his entire body of thousand odd songs can be counted as best loved.

Continuing the series on Mukesh and his composers, I take up his association with composer Dattaram.
We all know that Dattaram was one of the main pillars on which the empire of Shanker Jaikishen stood and flourished. He worked for SJ camp almost all of his career but also had several opportunities to compose on his own name in many of the films. It is now an established fact that he could not come out of the shadows of SJ completely in spite of being immensely talented and hard working.

The curious cases of Dattaram and another favourite of mine Ghulam Mohammed intrigues me to no end. They had everything in them to create name and fame for themselves, but it appears they were too reluctant to venture out on their own to a far extent.

There are many videos, interviews, articles and blogs available on the web for the works of Datttaram and I am skipping referring the same.
Below is the table of collaboration of works of Mukesh with the composer.

An interesting fact on initial glance reveals that two prominent names of SJ camp are missing. Lyricist Shailendra and singer Lata. Off course, both have worked for Dattaram but when we filter Mukesh songs, we find them missing.

Again, what should I write about the songs enlisted below. Its signature Mukesh all the way starting with the immortal “aansoo bhari hain”. This song will forever remain an indisputable proof of the wonders the voice could create in lower tones of pathos songs with or without instruments. It was 1958 and Mukesh had just come out the clutches of his failed experiments and he grasped the year with all his might and went on to become Mighty Mukesh.

A cursory glance through the second column in the table below brings to the mind several memories of humming these songs. And, for obvious reasons, I again skip describing each of the songs.

Needless to say, I have again relied on the highly reliable Mukesh Geetkosh by Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji and thank him for the same.

S.No Name of the song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 Aansoo bhari hain Parwarish (1958) Hasrat Jaipuri
2 Dil ne usey maan liya (Happy and Sad version) Santaan (1959) Hasrat Jaipuri
3 Dil dhoondhtaa hai Kaala Aadmi (1960) Hasrat Jaipuri
4 Ae dil dekhe hain humne Shreemaan Satyawaadi (1960) Hasrat Jaipuri
5 Ik baat kahoon wallaah Shreemaan Satyawaadi (1960) Mahendra Kapoor, Suman Kalyanpur Gulzar
6 Haal e dil hamaara Shreemaan Satyawaadi (1960) Hasrat Jaipuri
7 Rut albeli mast samaan Shreemaan Satyawaadi (1960) Gulzar
8 Maano ya na maano First Love (1961) Suman Kalyanpur Gulshan Baawra
9 Mere pyaar mein ya wafa First Love (1961) Gulshan Baawra
10 Mujhe mil gayi hai First Love (1961) Gulshan Baawra
11 Kabhi kisi ki khushiyaan Zindagi aur Khwaab (1961) Kavi Pradeep
12 Ae meri jaane wafaa Neeli Aankhen (1962) Gulshan Baawra
13 More Mann Mitwa Suna Morey Man Mitwaa (1965) Suman Kalyanpur Harishchandra Priyadarshi
14 Dekhi teri duniyaa arre Farishta (1968) Asad Bhopali

The duo worked together for 14 songs of which 13 are already represented on the blog and is yet another proof regarding their popularity. One duet with Suman Kalyanpur remains to be covered and is the song under consideration for the post. This duet is from a 1965 movie, Morey Man Mitwa, a Magadhi language film. The producer and director of the film are R. D. Bansal and Girish Ranjan respectively.

A chirpy and hummable love song, I am sure readers will like it on first listening.

Blog Day :

4761 Post No. : 16507

Today 31st July’2021 is the forty-second ‘Remembrance Day’ of Singer Mohd Rafi (born on 24.12.1924 and passed away on 31.07.1980).

On this occasion as a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the 1965 movie ‘Sant Tukaram’.

This was the oldest song, movie-wise, and oldest one that I had noted among the Rafi songs lying ready with me.

“Sant Tukaram-1965” was directed by Rakesh Nanda for ‘Ashok Films, Bombay’. It had Anita Guha, Shahu Modak, B.M. Vyas, Rohit Kumar, Madhu Apte, Badri Prasad, Kesari, Narmada Shankar, Vishwas Kunte, Tun Tun, Sadhna Khote, Helen, Rajpal and others.

Our respected Arun ji has given the story of this movie while discussing this song ‘Is jeewan mein jin jin se… ham to chale apne gaaon, sab ko mera raam raam’ as below.

About there centuries ago, Tukaram was born in Dehu Gaon. He was a sudra and had poor village folk take good from his shop and asked them to pay when they could afford. Mumbaji, the Pujari of the Ganesh Temple held permanent grudge against him. He instigated another grocer of the village to set fire to Tukaram’s shop. As if all these calamities were not enough one more was added to his lot in the form of famine. Tukarams old mother, his first wife and son died of starvation. Thukaram became detached from the world and spent his whole time in worship. He developed extraordinary powers. He even gave life to a dead child. But all this didn’t offer bread to his family. His surviving wife, Jeeja Bai implored him to seek some avocation. The landlord offered him the job as the watchman in his fields. Mumbaji drove cattle in the fields in order to destory the crop. By the grace of Lord Krishna, the yield was double, and the landlord gave Tukaram place for worship of the Lord.

Now Mumbaji asked Rambha a Nautch girl to spoil his reputation by enticing Tukaram with her fake love. Rambha failed. As a last resort he invited Rameshwar Bhatt the religious head to Dehu Gaon. Rameshwar Bhatt ordered Tukaram to stop writing abhang since he was born a shudra and ordered him to throw his `Gatha (Collection of Abhangs) in the Indrayani river. He did so but took a vow that he will fast unto death till his Gatha was restored to him by the Deity of the river. This miracle happened after two weeks ordeal. Shivaji Maharaj come to meet him. He offered money and gold to Tukaram, but he humbly declined to accept it. Shivaji that evening joined his keertan. Mumbaji informed the Moghuls to capture Shivaji. The Moghul Army found a thousand Shivaji’s and they returned flabbergasted. After this incident he peacefully wrote more abhangs. Mumbaji turned a leper and the village children pelted stones on him. Rameshwar Bhatt’s body felt burning sensation and even long submerging of the body in water could not heal him. At last, Tukaram received the message of the Lord to go to Heaven. The village folk thronged the streets for his Darshan. Even Mumbaji and Rameshwar Bhatt came to ask his forgiveness. They were cured of their maladies. The celestial Viman descended from the sky before the entire gathering of the village, and he went to heaven bodily.

This movie had eight songs. They ere written by Bharat Vyas (six songs) and Madhukar Rajasthani (two songs). Music for this movie was composed by Vedpal.

Here are the details of the songs in this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Lyricist Posted On
01 Bhagwaan ne janm diya manav ko Manna Dey Bharat Vyas
02 Banaa sakte ho jab duniya … ab to bataa de avgun mere Mohd Rafi Madhukar Rajasthani 26.12.2015
03 Shri Krishna Govind Gopalam… Jaagaa naya sawera Mohd Rafi Madhukar Rajasthani Being discussed today

06 Yah poonam ki chaandni… O bholey jogi sun meri paayliya Asha Bhonsle,Manna Dey Bharat Vyas
07 Deen dayaalu hain bade… Raam jisey taarey to usey kaun maarey Manna Dey, chorus Bharat Vyas
08 Is jeewan mein jin jin se… ham to chale apne gaaon, sab ko mera raam raam Manna Dey Bharat Vyas 10.11.2013

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and it is lip-synced on screen by Shahu Modak.

There is this incidence of Rameshwar Bhatt asking Sant Tukaram to immerse all his writings – Abhangs in the river Indrayani. In the movie the today’s song seems to be happening at this incidence where Sant Tukaram immersed his writings into the river and singing this song.

Let us now listen to today’s song sung by Mohd Rafi. Lyrics are by Madhukar Rajasthani, and music is composed by Vedpal.

Song-Jaaga naya sawera andhiyaara dhal gaya (Sant Tukaram)(1965) Singer-Rafi, Madhukar Rajasthani, MD-Vedpal

Lyrics

Shri Krishna govind gopalam
Shri Krishna govind gopalam

Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya
Toote jagat ke bandhan
Jeewan badal gaya aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya

Apnon ki moh maaya
Jhoothi baraat hai
Such dukh ka ye kabeelaa
Bande ke saath hai
Isko samajh ke bachna
Apne hi haath hai
Vedon ka saar ismein
Chhoti si baat hai
Aankhon ne jab ye parkha
Sankat hi tal gaya aa aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya

Chhal aur kapat mein uljha
Phirta hai aadmi
Karta hai jag mein jaisa
Bharta hai aadmi
Sab kuchh samajh ke kuchh naa
Samjha hai aadmi
Jaaye naa saath kuchh bhi
Jaata hai aadmi
Socha ye jisne uska
Har pal sambhal gaya aa aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya

Jhoothhe hain saare bandhan
Saanson ke taar ke
Rakh de re jag ka bojha
Jag mein utaar ke
Shamshaan ki chitaayein kehtin pukaar ke
Aana yahaan padega
Maanav ko haar ke
Oonche gagan pe chadh ke
Suraj bhi dhal gaya aa aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya
Toote jagat ke bandhan
Jeewan badal gaya aa aa
Jaaga naya sawera
Andhiyaara dhal gaya

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 22
———————————————————————————–

This Week, That Year – 5
———————————–
09May – 15May, 2011

It has been a long gap. The previous post in this series had come on 23rd Sep, 2020. And the post number was 15911. About seven and a half month’s worth of waterflow has passed under all the bridges. That was 231 days ago. And 450 posts ago. The blog has clocked four more century milestones, and is close to a fifth now.

An understatement it is – that life has changed in these past months. A lot of ideas and motivation for writing has been numbed. Even with the time and inclination both pointing in the right directions, the flow of writing is simply not coming together. Every week for the past 5 or 6 weeks, I scrutinize the 10 year challenge lists. Ideas form in the mind, but somehow do not get on to paper. For this week’s analysis and this post, I have been checking on the week status from a decade ago, for past couple of days. And then today, just decided to start off with this inability to articulate. Let’s see where it will lead to.

Maybe start with numbers. The week that was – 9th to 15th May of 2011. We saw two dot days that week – 11th and 13th May. Something was in the air during those days. Between April and May of that year, we see 10 dot days, that do not seem customary. We had 28 songs posted in that week, and given two dot days, the average productivity would be approximately 5.6 posts per day.

The 28 songs belonged to 27 different films, and only one film made a repeat appearance that week – the film ‘Pugree’ of 1948.

Considering the decades – the thirties and seventies had just one song present. In between we had 8 songs for the 1940s, 11 songs for the 1950s and 7 songs for the 1960s.

The week saw 5 debut films come on board. And the film ‘Parasmani’ of 1963 completed its run and made the Yippeee status. Of the 27 films that got featured that week, a whopping 19 films have since been Yippeee’d over the past decade. And 8 films are still awaiting more songs to complete their run on our blog. All the films have between 2 to 5 songs pending, which means none of them is one song away from being Yippeee’d.

Coming to milestones, the week saw the century milestone for music director Anil Biswas. On 10th May, with the song “Paise Ka Mantar Paise Ka Jantar“, from the 1956 film ‘Paisa Hi Paisa’, Anil Biswas clocked his first 100 songs posted on our blog.

The day by day break up and details of posts on daily basis is given in the table below.

Ten years ago, this day six songs were posted from six films. Of the six films, the following four have since been Yippeee’d – ‘Pugree’ (1948), ‘Faraar’ (1965), ‘Uski Kahaani’ (1966) and ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’ (1973). The two pending films are ‘Chaalis Din’ (1959) and ‘Namaste Ji’ (1965). For today’s post, I have picked this fun wooing song in the voice of Rafi Sb from the film ‘Namaste Ji’.

This film has an interesting background, from a collector’s perspective. For almost two decades, this film has been on the fringe of becoming available in public domain. There are collectors who have been declaring the availability of this film with tantalizing promises of making it available ‘shortly’. But that shortly has never really materialized. To the extent that there are folks who have uploaded doctored videos, i.e. songs of this film overlaid on a video sequence of another film with the same lead actors. Ah yes, we do see many an example of such shady presentations. And to tell you – the world is so full of believers, that the comment sections of such uploads contains profuse thanks for being able to see the video clip of the song. There are rare comments that point out this insidious jugglery, but such statements of accusatory truth are lost in the bevy of praises.

One of my very close and dear friends, has shown me photographs of the library shelves of another collector in Bombay, where the Betamax tape of this film, ‘Namaste Ji’ is very much visible. But no, we have had no success in being able to view or acquire this film. And so we are also not 100% certain that the titles that are sitting in the library of this other collector, whether these just blanks, to impress others. Do not know. This, and actually many other titles, have been doing rounds of collector circles and communications – that they are imminent to be released to public domain shortly.

Another very interesting variation to this scenario is the case where the original film has been dubbed into another language. Case in point is the film ‘Qaidi’ from 1957, very well known for its musical score by OP Nayyar. Now this film, as many others, was later dubbed into Tamil and other south Indian languages. The current scenario with this film is that the Hindi original of this film is not available (yet) in public domain. However the Tamil version is very much available in public domain. Some technically astute and enterprising collector has picked the video sequence from the Tamil version and has overlaid the audio of the song in Hindi. He has posted a couple of such ‘manufactured’ videos with the claim that they are the original and that he has the full film in original Hindi. After much explorations and discussions, it has been determined that the claim is spurious.

A very enticing and also tormenting situation is when actually we have real and true clips of songs and short video sequences posted online, but the entire film is simply not surfacing anywhere. Years have passed in waiting but simply no word of real existence has surfaced. Maybe I shall take this up in another post – it is getting very lengthy.

So back to ‘Namaste Ji’. The film has been produced under the banner of DM Films, Bombay (now Mumbai) and is directed by Daljeet Krishan. Is Daljeet the ‘D’ in the banner name? Not sure. The star cast as per the Geet Kosh is Ameeta, Mehmood, IS Johar, Nalini Chonkar, Ulhas, Manorama, Mridula, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Baij Sharma, Brahmdutt, Helen, Sumita, Arti, Manjula, Vinod, Ramesh, Ajeet, Meena, Baijnath, and Nazeer.

The film has 8 songs listed. The music boasts of such all time favorites as “Mere Do Naina Matwaale Kis Ke Liye“, “Bahaaron Thaam Lo Ab Dil Mera Mehboob Aata Hai“, and “Hamen Kya Jo Har Su Ujaale Huyen Hain”. Interesting to note that so far 4 songs of this film have made their appearance on the blog. Three of them appeared in 2011, the fourth came on board in 2014. And then, a long radio silence. Yes, the fifth song makes its appearance today, after a gap of seven years.

The music composition is by GS Kohli and the song writing is shared between Anjaan and Anand Bakshi. However sadly, the song being presented today has no lyricist identified for it. Could this be a traditional or a folk song that has been reused? Yes, quite possible, from the sound of it. The language of the song sounds like Awadhi or Bhojpuri, and so it could be folk song that has been brought into this film. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please comment on this observation.

From the rendering of this song, it may be not wrong to surmise that this song is picturized on Mehmood. It sounds similar in rural tones, to some other songs that Mehmood had performed on screen, e.g. the song “Pipra Ke Patwa Sareekhe Doley Manwa” from the 1963 film ‘Godaan’.

So, wrapping up today’s write up, with a forlorn hope that this film shall make its appearance in the public domain, sooner than later.

Let us see.

Rafi Sahab’s legendary associations: 01
————————————————————-

Rafi sahab’s association with Vasant Desai started in 1949 with ‘Nai Ta’aleem” and “Narsimha Avtar” and continued till the very last music score by Vasant Desai in Shaque (1976)(Ek dil hai ek jaan hai (Shaque)). Vasant Desai’s active career as a music director is just a bit longer, from 1942 to 1976.

I think this is the first time I am writing a post for a song composed by Vasant Desai. I heard of Vasant Desai in childhood, when my mother used to talk about how he had died in an accident caused by faulty lift, whenever a song from films like Goonj Uthhi Shehnai, Jhanak Jhanak Paayal baaje or Guddi, would play on radio.

This particular song I am presenting is a Rafi solo, only such song in the film ‘Amar Jyoti’ 1965. I was not familiar with it earlier, but it sounded so familiar and sweet on first hearing that I wanted to do the post for it immediately. I had thought of including it in the series of ‘Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II)”, but on checking I found that the series is nicely poised at song no. 20 with this song.

So I will conclude that series there, and not have any more songs in that series.

I will start a new series, on various associations of Rafi Sahab with different music directors and singers and lyricist, which left a mark on the hindi film music of the golden era.

Two such collaborations are covered in this song, where music director Vasant Desai, is composing a song with Rafi sahab’s phenomenal singing capabilities, his variations, and Bharat Vyas has written the lyrics. Bharat Vyas is a veteran of mythological films, for which Rafi sahab has sung countless songs under different music directors. I could count 36 songs by Vasant Desai in the excel sheet, many of which are not yet posted in the blog. There are 154 songs written by Bharat Vyas in the excel sheet. Keeping a margin of errors, 150 songs can be taken as written by Bharat Vyas from 1949 to 1982.

The data in our blog and the excel sheet maintained by Atul ji would be a lot accurate in this regard, as we complete the tally of these artist in the blog.
We are a long way away from doing this, judging by the total stats of these three artists in the blog:

Artist Songs in the blog Career tally of songs in HFM
Vasant Desai 181 390
Bharat Vyas 408 1246
Mohammed Rafi 3110 4846

The following 5 songs of Amar Jyoti (1965) are posted in the blog so far:

Song Date of posting
Kalpana ke ghan baraste 9 June 2012
Mera pyaar tadapta hai 3 May 2014
Sambhaal ke qadam rakhna 25 Decmber 2018
Jeewan bhar ham tum saath rahe 22 January 2020
Jhan jhan jhan jhan baaje paayaliyaa 1 February 2021

This solo Rafi song is a classic study of how Rafi Sahab is a legend. Saying it for the umpteenth time is just not enough, as his voice and some inner aura of purity comes oozing out of the words being uttered. The song is composition for Rafi Sahab and him alone. I have no qualms in stating that only Rafi sahab could have elevated this simple and sweet composition to the level that he takes, and makes it an example of how singing could be, from the soul.


Song-Wo phoole phoole phirte hain (Amar Jyoti)(1965) Singer-Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Vasant Desai
Chorus

Lyrics

aa aa aa

Wo phoole phoole phirte hain
jin ki qismat ko phool mile
ham kis qismat par naaz karen en
ham kis qismat par naaz Karen
jin ko thokar ki dhool mile
wo phoole phoole phirte hain

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

ham ne bhi sitaare ae maange thhe
kaliyon ki tamanna ki ham ne
khushiyon se sahaaraa maangaa jab
khushiyon se sahaaraa maangaa jab
to haathh diyaa ham ko gham ne
unn ke sehre pe moti tange
ham ko sehraa ke babool mile
ham kis qismat par naaz karen
jin ko thokar ki dhool mile
wo phoole phoole phirte hain

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

unn se kya shikaayat hai ham ko
jin ki taqdeer mein tu bhi hai
apni to kinaare par aa kar
apni to kinaare par aa kar
har baar ye kashti doobi hai
manzil ki meharbaani unn par
jin ko raahen anukool mile
ham kis qismat par naaz Karen
jin ko thokar ki dhool mile
wo phoole phoole phirte hain

Total upto 1965 772 movies 2414 2833 1992 642 144 53

It can be seen from the table of 1965 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 91 songs in movies released in 1965. It was for the first time since 1948 that the number of songs sung by her in a year fell below three figures.

As many as 83 of these 91 songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 42 movies of 1965 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 37 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 8 Lata songs belonging to 5 movies of 1965 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Amar Jyoti”(1965). This fantasy movie was directed by Raman Desai for Bombay Movietone, Bombay. The movie had L Vijaylaxmi, Mahipal, Ulhas, Kamal Mehra, Sapru, Sarla Devi, Gop Krishn etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it, including five Lata Mangeshkar songs- three solos and two male duets with Mahendra Kapoor. Four songs from the movie (including three Lata Mangeshkar songs) have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth Lata Mangeshkar song from “Amar Jyoti”(1965). This song is a duet with Mahendra Kapoor. Female Chorus can also he heard. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

This lesser known song is a rare song and only its audio seems to be available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.
The audio is not clear and I have not been able to get many words right. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable.

aakhir is duniya mein hamesha
kaun raha hai kaun rahega (aa aa aa aa)
ek ek tinke par yoon kab tak

insaanon ke haathon aakhir
bikta rahega insaan kab tak
maan behanon ki izzat se yoon(aa aa aa aa)
maan behanon ki izzat se yoon
khelenge ye haiwaan kab tak
khelenge ye haiwaan kab tak
aur kahaan tak kamzoron par
taaqatwar ka zor chalega (aa aa aa aa)
aakhir is duniya mein hamesha
kaun raha hai kaun rahega(aa aa aa aa)
ek ek tinke pe yoon kab tak

jung ke baadal chhant jaayenge

ho ke rahegi aisi sahar bhi ee ee(aa aa aa aa)
ho ke rahegi aisi sahar bhi
jis se andhere mit jaayenge
jis se andhere mit jaayenge ae ae(aa aa aa aa)(aa aa aa aa)

“Khaandaan” (1965)was produced by Vasu Menon and directed by A Bhim Singh for Vasu Films, Madras. The movir had Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Pran, Sudesh Kumar, Manmohan Krishna, Mohan Choti, Om Prakash, Ravikant, Arundev, Mumtaz, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lalita Pawar, Helen, Jeewankala etc in it.

This archtypical “social” movie had the usual fare typical of movies made in the South.

“Khaandaan”(1965) had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details:-

Here is the eighth and final song from “Khandaan”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a synchronised stage dance performance song on Helen and Jeewankala. Their energetic dance performance is bound to recharge the spirits of the watchers even today, 55 years after this video was first witnessed by moviegoers in moviehalls. Watching this performance made me realise that performing such dances were the secret behind the figures of these dancers. 🙂

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

With this song, all the eight songs of “Khandaan”(1965) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day :

4454 Post No. : 15921

In my last three articles, I have discussed Hindi film dancers, Mohana Cabral, Sheila Vaz and Minu Mumtaz. One common factor in all the three dancers was that they had active Hindi film careers of around 5-6 years after which they got married and quit Hindi films when they had not even attained 25 years of age. They took the responsibilities as house-wives and lived happily with more or less the same level of comfort and life style as they would have got had they continued their filmy careers. To this list of three Hindi film dancers, I am adding one more dancer who also quit Hindi films after her active years of Hindi film career during 1960-66. The name of the dancer is Jeevankala. She got married in 1969 when she was 25.

I got background information on Jeevankala from her two interviews – one in 1964 which was published in ‘Picture Post’ magazine and republished in ‘Cineplot’ on January 1, 2012. The other interview was of recent origin which was taken by Shishir Krishna Sharma in December 2018 and published in his Blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ on March 31, 2020. Based on these two interviews, the main highlights of the profile of Jeevankala and her journey with Hindi film industry are given below:

Jeevankala (also written as Jeevan Kala) was born on June 29, 1944 at Pune to Dattatreya and Gangubai who were actors in silent films and later in Marathi films when sound films started in 1931. However, after Jeevankala was born, the parents gave up their film career. Incidentally, the name, ‘Jeevankala’ was suggested by her neighbour, Lata Mangeshkar. Jeevankala did her primary schooling in Pune. Simultaneously, knowing his daughter’s interest in dances, the father put her under the tutelage of Babsaheb Gokhale for Kathak dance and Professor Gaekwad for Bharatnatayam dance for a period of 7 years. Later, she learnt all other formats of dances by herself.

In 1957, Jeevankala’s family shifted to Mumbai as she got a job of assiatant dance teacher in Bharatiya Vidhya Bhawan and taught Kathak dance to students. She was also participating in Lata Mangeshkar’s musical shows in Mumbai in which she used to give her dance recitals. She also attended the night school and completed her Matric in 1960.

In one of Jeevankala’s dance recitals, producer-director K Amarnath saw her skill in dancing and offered her a role of a dancer in his film, ’Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959) in which she had two dance songs. However, she also said that ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959) was her debut film in which a song “Akhiyaan Bhool Gayi Hain Sona” was picturised on her. [As per her filmography, she had already acted in 8 films during 1956-58. I will come to it later].

After she was noticed in her dance skills in ‘Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959) and ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959), Jeevankala started getting many films offers. Starting as a dancer, over a period of time, she started getting character actor’s roles and also romantic roles pairing with comedians. She also got the role of a vamp in ‘Mr. X in Bombay’ (1964) and ‘Saraswatichandra’ (1968).

In 1969, Jeevankala got married to Ram Kelkar, the story, screen-play and dialogue writer in Marathi films. It was a marriage arranged by Sulochana Latkar who was like ‘God Mother’ to her after the death of her mother in 1965. After marriage, Jeevankala quit the film industry. Her husband, Ram Kelkar became a successful story, screen-play and dialogue writers for Hindi films like ‘Beimaan’ (1972), ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974), ‘Sanyaasi’ (1975), Kaalicharan’ (1976), ‘Asha’ (1980), ‘Hero’ (1983), ‘Ram Lakhan’ (1989), ‘Khalnaayak’ (1993) etc.

On the basis of Jeevankala’s filmography checked from the various sources, I have been able to list 110 Hindi films in which she worked during 1956 to 1968. A few films of her were released late up to 1974. Her active years of film career was during 1960-1966, appearing in 70 films. In the 1964 interview, Jeevankala gave the impression of ‘Kal Hamara Hai’ (1959) as her first Hindi film and in the 2018 interview, she mentioned ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959) as her debut film. It is interesting to note that in ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959), Jeevankala has not been accredited in the credit titles of the film. But she appears in one song of the film.

A further interesting observation about Jeevankala’s filmography is that before 1959, she had worked in as many as 8 films which include ‘Alam Ara’ (1956), ‘Paristaan’ (1957), ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958) and ‘Detective’ (1958). In ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958), a dance song “O Jaan e Jaan Muddat Ke Baad” has been picturised on her.

Jeevankala, who started with big banners film producing companies like Prakash Pictures’ ‘Goonj Uthi Shahnai’ (1959) and K Amarnath Productions’ ‘Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959), drifted into ‘B’ grade movies in the genres of fantasy, action, costume drama, thriller etc. In such films, heroes would be like Sheikh Mukhtar, Ranjan, Daljeet, Dara Singh and heroines would be like Chitra, Vijaya Chowdhary, Parveen Chowdhary, Nishi etc. Of course, she also continued to be associated with big banner films like ‘China Town’ (1962), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Mere Sanam’ (1965), ‘Khandaan’ (1965), ‘Himalaya Ki God Mein’ (1965), ‘Saawan Ki Ghata’ (1966), ‘Saraswatichandra’ (1968) etc.

Jeevankala has also worked in some Marathi films. In ‘Putra Whava Aisa’ (1961), she was in lead role opposite Vivek in which an immortal song,  जिथे सागरा धरणी मिळते beautifully rendered by Suman Kalyanpur was picturised on Jeevankala. A laavani  song, रेशमाच्या रेघांनी, लाल काळया धाग्यांनी from ‘Marathi Tituka Melwava’ (1964) was also picturised on Jeevankala as a laavani dancer.

In the interview of December 2018, Jeevankala has claimed that about 70 songs have been picturised on her. Our Blog has covered 38 songs picturised on her and 17 songs, the video clips of which are available on video sharing platforms are yet to be covered on the Blog. Thus, the total songs picturised on Jeevankala works out to 55. In addition, there could be a few more of her songs for which video clips are not available as some of her films are not traceable as of now.

During the listing of songs picturised on Jeevankala, I came across an obscure  film ‘Panch Ratan’ (1965) (In the credit titles it is written as ‘पंच-रतन’ in Hindi) which was directed by Kamran. The star cast consisted of Randhawa, Parveen Chowdhary, Kamran, Kamal Mehra, Amarnath, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Sadhana Khote, Jeevankala, Laxmi Chhaya, Meenaxi, Aruna etc. The full film is available for viewing in HD quality and it belongs to the ‘Action-Costume Drama’ genre. Probably, this film was meant for those audience who used to enjoy wrestling bouts between Dara Singh, King Kong and others in the 60s at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Stadium, Worli in Mumbai. In addition, there are sword fights in the film for such audience.

The film has 5 songs written by 2 lyricists – Anjaan (4) and Upendra (1). I am presenting the song, “Kya Ho. . . Kahin Miley Do Nigaahen” from ‘Panch Ratan’ (1965). The song is rendered by Suman Kalyanpur and Kamal Barot and is picturised on Laxmi Chhaya and Jeevankala, respectively. In the audience, Parveen Chowdhary,  Randhawa, Kamal Mehra, Meenaxi and Shyam Kumar can be seen among others.

The song is written by Anjaan which is set to music by Sardar Malik.

क्या हो
हाय क्या हो
कहीं मिलें दो निगाहें
फिर क्या हो
अरे क्या हो
हाय क्या हो
तुम्हें कैसे समझाएँ फिर क्या हो
पूछो ना
जान ए जां
बात है
राज़ की
हाय क्या हो

जब जवां हसरतों का
जाम हो छलका छलका
डमगाते हों अरमां
हो नशा हल्का हल्का
ऐसे में
जब कोई
देख ले
प्यार से
फिर क्या हो
कहीं मिलें दो निगाहें फिर क्या हो
अरे क्या हो
तुम्हें कैसे समझाएँ फिर क्या हो
पूछो ना
जान ए जां
बात है
राज़ की
हाय क्या हो

हो समा आशिक़ाना
दिल में भी बचपना हो
ऐसी नाज़ुक घड़ी में
उनसे जो सामना हो
दिल दगा
दे हमें
धड़कनें
जाएँ थम
फिर क्या हो
कहीं मिलें दो निगाहें फिर क्या हो
अरे क्या हो
तुम्हें कैसे समझाएँ फिर क्या हो
पूछो ना
जान ए जां
बात है
राज़ की
हाय क्या हो

Missing Films of 1960s – 116
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, wonderful. Revisiting an old friend after a very long gap. Feels good.

This series was initiated on 30th Sep, 2015, almost 5 years ago to the day. The series continued with a certain regularity almost for four years, till 1st July, 2019. That day, I had posted a rarest of the rare finds – “Taaron Bhari Raat Hai” – a song from the film ‘Hawa Mahal’ (1962), a film which is very much available in video, but sadly all its songs have been axed from the VCD release. I had written in that post, that I had even gone beyond the VCD version and searched out the VHS cassette of the film, and even that had no songs. But fortunately, searching thru film, I accidentally chanced to catch half a song that appeared at the end of the film. Probably, when the editors were making the cuts, for whatever reasons (which we do not know at this point), they had missed out the closing shots of the film, whereat one song is repeated partially as is the tradition followed in many Hindi films we know.

That was the 112th episode of this series. And I believed at that time that I had exhausted all the available films of 1960s that I could gather from all the sources I could take help from. But I was so wrong in my belief at that time. And man, am I glad that I was so wrong. Actually, as soon as that post appeared, I got a few messages from friends on the blog and off it, that hey, this here is another film available, so please check it out. I did, and found a few more films and songs available, that have helped to keep this series alive and continuing.

The frequency has reduced significantly, but surely, we have now added three more films to the series. We keep chugging along, and hopefully will continue to reduce the number of films which sit on the list of pending films from 1960s. I bring on board one more film from 1960s, that had been unavailable for quite sometime. And to let you know, there still are two more films that have been identified and I will be posting them appropriately.

The intent of the series continues today with a song from the 1965 film ‘Panch Ratan’. This obscure film had remained so for quite many years. Even the Geet Kosh did not carry the complete information about this film. The list of songs is there, but the songs themselves remained elusive for long. It appears that the songs of this film were not released on gramophone records, and so the audio version of the songs of this film remains out of reach even today. However, the video of this film has been available online for almost 10 years now, indicating that it was a major miss on my part as I started searching five years or so ago, for missing films of 1960s.

Anyway. The film is available, as are its songs. Here is the first song of this film, as it makes it debut on our blog here today. The film is produced under the banner of Broadway Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Kamran. The film is a costume drama, with a theme that has been oft repeated in Hindi cinema and also the world cinema. The theme is the variation of the storyline in which a group of well meaning friends come together in a pact of solidarity, to overthrow a local regime of a tyrannical bad-man. Films on this theme are plenty across the world – ‘Seven Samurai’, and ‘The Magnificent Seven’ immediately come to mind, as do films like ‘Khotey Sikkey’ etc. I am sure readers will be able to add more films as examples.

The cast of the film is listed as Randhawa, Parveen Chaudhary, Kamran, Shaam Kumar, Kamal Mehra, Habeeb, Amarnath, Randhir, Meenakshi, Sadhana Khote, Fazal, Moolchand, Sabir, Anjum, Madhumati, Jeevankala, Aruna, Lakshmichaya, Saudagar Singh, Joginder Singh, Vasant Singh, and Sony Alexander etc.

The film has five songs, all in video. None of these songs have appeared any gramophone records. Four of the songs are written by Anjaan and one song is credited to Upendra. Today’s song is by Anjaan. Music for this film is composed by Sardar Malik. Today, I present the first song of this film here. This is a raj-darbaar dance song – a dance performed in a royal court setting. The singing voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. On screen, the song has been performed by actress Aruna. The identification of the dancer has been made by our dear Prakash ji. Also, in this video clip, we can see Parveen Chaudhry, Randhir, and Kamran, seated on the raised dias watching this performance. In between, the scene cuts to a dungeon where we see Randhawa and Shaam Kumar as prisoners being tortured by the king’s soldiers. We also see three other soldiers enter the dungeon, one of whom is actually a lady dressed as a male soldier. Apparently, these three are friends of Randhawa who have come to rescue him. Their identity gets revealed as the helmet of lady gets disturbed and her long hair fall down. A melee ensues in which Randhawa and Shaam Kumar are freed and the chief of the torture chamber is put in chains. All this while the dance and the song continues in the royal court. There is help required to identify all the players in this clip, and I request Prakash ji and other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help to identify more actors.

With this song, ‘Panch Ratan’ makes its debut here on the blog. And it also bring up the 116th episode of this series. I must admit that the gap in the episodes has been quite a bit, and even this post has been prompted by the fact that another post, by Sadanand ji, is now waiting to be posted, and it uses another song of this film. When Atul ji and I received the post from Sadanand ji, I was prompted into quick action to ensure that the debut song of this film is first brought on board as part of this series and then the post by Sadanand ji gets published. I must thank him for being patient to wait for me to post this debut song. His post should be coming on within a day.

Another very interesting observation here. In the flurry of Ten Year Challenge posts, we seem to have backed away from posting debut songs. The last debut song posted here was on 5th Sept, nineteen days ago. And 46 posts ago. Meaning that in the past nineteen days, 46 songs have been posted and not a single one is from a debut film. We need to research whether this is a record. I am not sure, but seems quite like it.

I will sign off now and let you take a view and listen to this wonderful fast paced melody which is quite attractive in the first hear itself. The dance movements and expressions presented by Aruna are very impressive. A song that surely is worth watching as well as hearing.
