ruke nahin koi yahaan naami ho ki anaam
koi jaaye subah ko koi jaaye shaam

— Gopal Das Saxena ‘Neeraj’

With the passing away of Gopal Das Saxena ‘Neeraj’ in the evening of July 19, 2018, the country has lost the last doyen of the progressive school of Hindi poetry. And with this, we have lost another ‘Sahir Ludhianvi’ of Hindi film songs. His association with Hindi film industry especially during 1970-75 had taken the Hindi film music to a new height. I would say that Neeraj has elongated the golden period of Hindi film music.

At a time when Hindi poetry were majorly influenced by ‘Chhaayawadi’ (Romanticism) poets like Jaishankar Prasad, Sumitranandan Pant, Suryakant Tripathi ‘Niraala’ and Mahadevi Verma, it was first Harivansh Rai Bachchan followed by Neeraj who departed from the genre of Chhaayawad poetry and started writing in a language understandable to the common man encompassing all the facades of human life. Neeraj was always a people’s poet.

I first became aware of Neeraj as a poet when I was in 9th standard. Our Hindi teacher spoke about him in the context of one of his poems in our syllabus. I do not remember now as to which was the poem. But I distinctly remember to have heard our teacher saying that he was one of the emerging Hindi poets of post-chhaayawad period. After having moulded with the poems of chaayawadi poets during our early high school days, I personally found Neeraj’s poems at that time a bit ordinary as compared with poems of chhaayawadi poets.

In my early college days (first year and intermediate), I came to know more about Neeraj thanks to our Hindi lecturer who was an admirer of his poems. Although I had heard on radio the popular songs from ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ (1965), it was from our Hindi lecturer I came to know that these popular songs were written by none other than Neeraj. At that time, I was not deep into the lyrics of the Hindi film songs. My reaction to this news was one of the surprises – how a Hindi poet could downgrade himself as a lyricist!

It took me another 5 years to appreciate the work of Neeraj as a lyricist by which time I was majorly engrossed in Hindi film music. His popular songs like kaarwaan guzar gaya gubaar dekhte rahe, dekhti hi raho aaj darpan na tum, wo ham na thhe wo tum na thhe made me to go through the lyrics afresh. All these songs looked more poetic than the lyrics which we were used to listen. Yet they were simple to understand.

By now, I had become an ardent admirer of Neeraj. There was a time in the early 70s, when I used to watch films which had Neeraj as lyricist.I recall a few films like ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970), ‘Pehchaan’ (1970), ‘Sharmilee’ (1971), ‘Gambler’ (1971), ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971) etc which I saw in the theatres. I realised that here was a poet who used imageries and metaphors in a novel way to add freshness to the songs. Examples: Shokhiyon mein gholaa jaye phoolon ka shabaab, phoolon ke rang se dil ki kalam se, bas yahi apraadh main har baar karta hoon, khilte hain gul yahaan khil ke bikharne ko, megha chhaaye aadhi raat, jeewan ki bagiya mahkegi, dil aaj shaayar hai gham aaj naghma hai.

After my retirement in 2006, I started reading Neeraj’s non-filmy poetic works and appreciating his poetry. He was really a people’s poet. I can now say that just as popularity of ‘Madhushala’ written by Harivash Rai Bachchan had put his other higher literary works in the background, the popularity of ‘kharwaan guzar gaya gubaar dekhte rahen’ and other hindi film songs of Neeraj have relegated into background. With his more than 5 decades of poetic work, the article would become too long. So I will confine myself mostly to Neeraj’s filmy career in this article.

Gopaldas Neeraj was born on January 4, 1925 in the Purwali village of Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh. At the age of 6, his father passed away. He was sent to his aunt’s house in Etawah for schooling. However, due to the precarious financial condition, Neeraj had to discontinue his studies after 10th standard did some odd jobs at Etawah and later in Delhi in the 1940s to earn for the family. While working, he completed his graduation and in 1953, he passed MA in Hindi literature with first class. He was associated with Dharma Samaj College, Aligarh as Lecturer and retired as a Professor of Hindi literature from the same college.

Neeraj’s inspiration for writing Hindi poems came from a collection of poems titled ‘Nisha Nimantran’ (Invitation to Night) written by Harivansh Rai Bachchan which he had read when he was in 9th class. Thereafter, he started writing poems and attended Kavi Sammelan in which among others, Harivansh Rai Bachchan was the main attractions. By 1960, Neeraj had become one of the most sought after poets for Kavi Sammelan held all over India.

Sometime in 1960, Neeraj visited Bombay (Mumbai) to recite his poems in a Kavi Sammelan. Music director Roshan was one of those from the film industry who was impressed by his poems. Roshan offered him to write lyrics for the film ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ (1965) which Neeraj politely declined stating that he could not leave his job. He however suggested to Roshan that if found suitable, he could select a few of his published poems for the films. So, most of the songs from the film was based on Neeraj’s published poems.

Chandrashekhar, who was producing and directing his maiden film ‘Cha Cha Cha’ (1964) wanted Neeraj to write lyrics for the film. Neeraj obliged him by writing two songs for the film – ‘wo hum na thhe wo tum na thhe’ and ‘subha na aayi shaam na aayi’ which became very popular. He also wrote songs for films like ‘Sati Naari’ (1965), ‘Tu Hi Meri Zindagi’ (1965), Majli Didi’ (1967), Kanyadaan’ (1968) etc. But uptil now, Neeraj had done the song writing as a part time work without leaving his full time job as Lecturer in Dharma Samaj College, Aligarh.

Sometime in early 1960s, Dev Anand had met Neeraj at a mushiara in Mumbai. At that time, Dev Anand had told him that he liked the language in his poems and hope to work with him some day.

One day, Neeraj saw an advertisement of the announcement of the film ‘Prem Pujari’ (1971) in which he saw the name of Dev Anand as director and S D Burman as music director. However, there was no name of song writer. So Neeraj wrote to Dev Anand recalling his conversation at the mushiara in Mumbai and offered to write songs for the film. Within a week, Neeraj got a hand written reply from Dev Anand requesting him to come to Mumbai and meet S D Burman, the music director. In an interview which appeared in May 21, 2015 issue of ‘The Hindu’, Neeraj revealed:

He put me in luxurious hotel in Santa Cruz and paid me Rs.1000 even before signing me. Next day, he took me to S.D. Burman, who showed apprehensions about a poet’s ability to write to tunes and a given situation. Dev Anand said that he should not worry. He should give the tune and if Neeraj failed, he would remain his guest for six days and enjoy Bombay. Burman Da gave me a tune and said the song should start with ‘Rangeela Re’ and it is about a girl who sees her beloved coming to a party with another girl. It should have elements of frustration in love, jealousy and satire. I worked the whole night and came up with ‘rangeela re tere rang mein youn ranga hai mera mann’.

Next day, he went to Dev Anand’s office and showed what he had written. After reading it, he embraced Neeraj and exclaimed how he could do it in one night. He immediately took me to Burman Da’s home and proudly presented me to him and said: See, I told you, Neeraj has done it. When Burman Da listened to it, he said ‘Dev you go now. We will sit together. After Dev Anand left, Burman Da admitted that he gave me this complex situation to make me give up. After that, we three began to bond. …… I wrote my best songs for him and the biggest royalty I get is from the songs that I wrote for Dev Anand, adding that he never signed a contract with him.

After the success of his songs in ‘Prem Pujaari’ (1970), Neeraj left his job at Dharma Samaj College, Aligarh and shifted his base to Mumbai to become a full time lyricist in Mumbai film industry. The success of his songs in films like ‘Pehchan’ (1970), ‘Sharmilee’ (1971), ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971), ‘Gambler’ (1971) etc gave further boost to his career.

During his active career (1970-75) in Hindi film industry, Neeraj mainly worked with S D Burman and Shankar-Jaikishan with whom he had developed good rapport. With the death of Jai Kishan in 1971 and S D Burman in 1975 Neeraj, on record, considered himself as an unlucky poet in Hindi film industry. Sometime after the death of S D Burman, Neeraj bid adieu to Hindi film industry and rejoined as Professor of Hindi literature in Dharma Samaj College, Aligarh. My own gut feeling says that being a sensitive poet, Neeraj may have felt uncomfortable to work with new music directors with whom he might have creative differences.

Neeraj did occasionally write lyrics for some films by sitting at Aligarh in post-1975 period. The last film for which he wrote songs was ‘Chargesheet’ (2011) which happened to be the last film produced and directed by Dev Anand.

As our homage to Neeraj, I have selected a lesser known song from the film ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ (1965) which seems to have become a ‘back-bencher’by his other popular songs from the film. The song is ‘isko bhi apnaata chal’ sung by Mohmmed Rafi and composed by Roshan. The scene in the film is that of Kavi Sammelan where poets are reciting their poems. But the hero Rajeev recites his poem by singing.

The song is of nearly 6 minutes’ duration in the audio clip. However, in the film, it is reduced to about 3 minutes duration by skipping two antaras of the song.

Song-Isko bhi apnaata chal usko bhi apnaata chal(Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal)(1965) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Neeraj, MD-Roshan

Lyrics(Based on audio)

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm
isko bhi apnaata chal
usko bhi apnaata chal
raahi hain sab ek dagar ke
sab par pyaar lutaata chal
isko bhi apnaata chal

idhar kafan tak nahin laash par
udhar numaayish resham ki
yahaan swayamvar kare chaandni
wahaan na raat kate gham ki
dharti kankad patthar maare
ambar ugle angaare
koi poochhe baat na is bagiya mein dukhiyaa shabnam ki
sukh ki umr badhaata chal
dukh ko kafan odhaata chal
miley jahaan bhi mahal usey
kutiya ke paas bulaata chal
isko bhi apnaata chal

bikaa biki sab oar machi hai
aane au do aanon par
asmat bikey doraahon par to
pyaar bikey dukaanon par
dagar dagar par mandir masjid
qadam qadam par gurudwaare
bhagwaanon ki basti mein hai
zulm bahut insaanon par
khidki har khulwaata chal
saankal har katwaata chal
is par bhi raushni na ho to
dil kaa diyaa jalaata chal
isko bhi apnaata chal
usko bhi apnaata chal
raahi hain sab ek dagar ke
sab par pyaar lutaata chal
isko bhi apnaata chal

hriday hriday ke beech khaaiyaan
lahu bichhaa maidaanon mein
ghoom rahe hain yuddh sadak par
shaanti chhipi shamshaanon mein
zanjeeren kat gayin magar
aazaad nahin insaan abhi
duniya bhar ki khushi qaid hai
chaandi jade makaanon mein
tat tat raas rachaataa chal
panghat panghat gaataa chal
pyaasaa hai har praan nayan kaa
gangaa-jal chhalkaata chal
isko bhi apnaata chal

nayan nayan tarsen sapnon ko
aanchal tarsen phoolon ko
aangan tarsen tyohaaron ko
galiyaan tarsen jhoolon ko
kisi honth par baje na bansi
kisi haath mein been nahin
umar samadar ki de daali
kis ne chand baboolon ko
soyi kiran jagaata chal
roothi subahen manaata chal
pyaar naqaabon mein na band ho
har ghoonghat khulwaata chal
isko bhi apnaata chal
usko bhi apnaata chal

“Poornima”(1965) was directed by Narendra Suri for Roopkala pictures, Bombay. This “social” movvie had Meena Kumari, Dharmendra, Anita Guha, Mehmood, Siddhu, Nazeer Hussain, Durga Khote, Parveen Chaudhary, Sadhana Khote, Raja Nene, Kanu Roy, Kanchanmala, Kesri, Polson, Honey Irani, Bablu etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it that were penned by four lyricists. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Poornima”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picyturised as a background song where a dukhiyaari (what else) Meena Kumari is shown roaming around helplessly with her child. Nazeer Hussain, a perrenial dukhi budhha, is also visible in the picturisation.


O is desh ke rehne waalon (Poornima)(1965) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

o is desh ke rahne waalon
naari ko devi kahne waalon
maa ke sapooton
bahnon ke bhai
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani
o is desh ke rahne waalon
naari ko devi kahne waalon
maa ke sapooton
bahnon ke bhai
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani

bichhaaye jo kismat ne kaante
unhen bhi gale se lagaaya
magar haaye re badnaseebi
tere man ko ye bhi na bhaaya
chali aisi aandhi
uthha aisa toofaan
bhikhaaran bani aaj mahlon ki raani
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani

bhatakti phiroon aaj dar dar
hai roti bina pet khaali
uchhaale zamaane ne sikke
na roti kisi ne uchhaali
har ek dil hai maila
har ek aankh bhookhi
hawas ne sabhi ka kiya khoon paani
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani

ye dharti ka nanha sa munna
hai rahbar tumhaare watan ka
ye maangega jab bheekh tumse
to jhuk jaayega sar gagan ka
magar tumpe phir bhi asar kuchh na hoga
tumhaare liye khel hai zindgaani
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani

o is desh ke rahne waalon
naari ko devi kahne waalon
maa ke sapooton
bahnon ke bhai
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani
zara sunte jaana ye meri kahaani

Missing Films of 1960s – 68
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Fifteen days and thirty one posts later – that is the amount of days and posts that I missed keeping up with on the blog, with dear Atul ji keeping up with the pace all alone. I have a lot of excuses to give, but no reasons that may be convincing. Just flowing along with certain compulsions and different priorities. But I had to get back in action today. After getting a word from Atul ji about his traveling plans, just to hold on and not allow any more dot days to go by might just be a good accomplishment. So, I am back again, and hopefully should be holding fort for now.

Back to visiting the 1960s decade once again. Today’s debut film is ‘Daanveer Karn’ from 1965. A very obscure and rare film, that I came to hear about only when the list of missing films from 1960s was prepared by Khyati Ben. I could not locate practically any information other than what is given in the Geet Kosh. However, on browsing through the YouTube, I come across an interesting thing. One can see some links for a film by this name, and a couple of songs also. But this film, although carrying the same name, is a dubbed film from Tamil, starring Shivaji Ganeshan and Savitri. However, when I played the songs, they are not what is listed in the Geet Kosh for this film. So apparently this could be a coincidence that two films by the same name appeared in 1965, one of them being a dubbed version of a Tamil original by the same name.

But then there is more surprise in store – as I checked the details of the film in Geet Kosh, I find some details matching. In that, the production company is from Madras (Padmini Pictures) and the lead artists are Shivaji Ganeshan and Savitri. Could then this be the same film, which gets listed in Geet Kosh? Possibly. Just that the two songs available on YouTube from this film, are not listed in the Geet Kosh. So a mystery that needs to be researched. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film and its music.

The film is directed by K Panthalu. The songs are credited to Prem Dhawan and the music is by K Balkrishan. As for the music director, I do not find any other film that has been done by him, in Hindi cinema at least. His work is confined to the South Indian cinema. The cast of actors as per Geet Kosh is given as Shivaji Ganeshan, NT Ramarao, Savitri, Devika, MV Rajamma, Sandhya, Rukmani, G Shakuntala, SA Ashokan, Mutthuraman, Jawar Sitaraman, Mutthaiya, K Natrajan, and BS Raghvan etc.

Today’s debut song from this film is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. This is a song of love, in which the lady is complaining about the indifferent attitude of her beau, who does not seem to pay any attention to her. A somewhat breezy composition, this is an unheard gem of Suman Kalyanpur, that I am liking very much now. I am sure you will too. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Kaise Kahoon Ri, Keh To Sakhi Ri  (Daanveer Karn) (1965) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – K Balkrishan

Lyrics

kaise kahoon ri
keh to sakhi ri
jaane nirmohi na peeda mann ki. . .

kaise kahoon ri
keh to sakhi ri
jaane nirmohi na peeda mann ki
kaise kahoon ri
keh to sakhi ri
tan kyon doley
mann kyon kaanpe
jaane na aaj kahaan koi
kaise kahoon ri
keh to sakhi ri
jaane nirmohi na peeda mann ki
kaise kahoon ri
keh to sakhi ri
jaane nirmohi na peeda mann ki. . .

dil mein hai armaan
kitne hi toofaan. . .
aaa aaa aaa aaaa
aaaa aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaaaaa aaaaaa aaaaa
aaaaaa aaaaaa aaaaa
dil mein hai armaan
kitne hi toofaan
nahin mo pe daale nazar
haaye piya nadaan
pal chhin birha ke laage mohey baan
bada julmi hai baalam anjaan
kaise kahoon ri
keh to sakhi ri
jaane nirmohi na peeda mann ki
jaane nirmohi na peeda mann ki

kaise ab samjhaaun mann ko
bhool gaye wo mujh birhan ko
jaa ke koi ye keh do un ko
ik ghadi un bin chain na aaye
kaise kahoon ri
keh to sakhi ri
jaane nirmohi na peeda mann ki
kaise kahoon ri
keh to sakhi ri
jaane nirmohi na peeda mann ki. . .

Blog Day : 3554 Post No. : 14261

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.

“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

nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re ae
de ke daga wo to chala gaya

nikla sainyya chalbaaz re ae
de ke daga wo to chala gaya chala gaya
de ke daga wo to chala gaya

teri raahon mein ham bhi khade hain
teri raahon mein ham bhi khade hain
ek nazar dekh le jaane waale
koi bhala kaise dil ko sambhaale
dil ko sambhaale kaise
o jaane waale
ho o o
qaatil hain ye andaaz re haay raam
nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re ae
deke daga wo to chala gaya chala gaya
deke daga wo to chala gaya

toone churaai meri aankhon se nindiya
toone churaai meri aankhon se nindiya
chain kahaan
ho gayi main deewaani
hoke magan naache meri jawaani
ae ree jawaani hui hui dekho deewaani
ho dil tujh par hai naaj re haay raam
nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re ae
deke daga wo to chala gaya chala gaya
deke daga wo to chala gaya

kaise bedardi se ankhiyaan ladi hain
kaise bedardi se ankhiyaan ladi hain
o ji balam tujhko kaise manaayen
aaja baalam le loon teri balaayen
teri balaayen leke tujhko manaayen
ho o o
sun le chaahat ka raaj re haay raam
nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re
deke daga wo to chala gaya chala gaya
deke daga wo to chala gaya

Missing Films of 1960s – 62
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Over a period of time now, more and more films and film songs are becoming available online. Earlier this week itself, Bakshi ji mentioned in one of our conversations that he is now downloading films right on to his smart phone from the internet, and watches them at his convenience. The smart phones are coming up with huge storage memories. The mobile phone service providers are coming up with plans that allow large data volumes to be downloaded. As per him, services like Jio are able to provide good bandwidth, and it does not take long to download a full film. This seems to be a good time for lovers of Hindi films and film music – just log on, do some search and one is able to find many items of interest. And to add, of course, that more and more people are now uploading films and songs online, and sharing with the world.

When I started this series, at the request of Katie Ben, for many episodes I was following the yearly sequence, as per the list worked out by her. In between, sometimes I would jump ahead for a special request. But the progression was linear more or less. Lately, I have been moving back and forth between the years, as I continue to either discover hitherto unavailable songs, or having acquired them from friends, I have uploaded them myself. Having reached up to the year 1967 with postings of songs of unrepresented films, I move back to 1965 again today.

The film being introduced today is ‘Gopal Krishna’. As the name suggests, this is a religious film, that highlights the life and times of Lord Krishna, when he descended upon this earth, as an incarnation for destroying the evil forces in this creation.

The film is produced under the banner of Chitrashala, Bombay and is directed by D Raman. The cast of actors is listed as Jaishri Gadkar, Prakash, Rajan Haksar, Sapru, SK Prem, Ratnamala, Mohan Choti, Mridula, Dalpat, Moni Chatterji, Sadhana Khote, Madhumati, Uma Khosla, Lalita Kumari, Saudagar Singh, KL Panda, and Pal Singh. From this list, I surmise that the lead role of Krishna is played by the person whose name is listed as ‘Prakash’. There are eight songs listed for this film. All the songs are from the pen of Bharat Vyas, and the music is composed by N Dutta.

This lovely song is rendered by Suman Kalyanpur. On screen this is performed by Jaishree Gadkar, playing the role of Radha ji, as she is serenading Krishna, role played by Prakash (I hope my guess is correct). The scenario is the groves by the banks of River Jamuna. Krishna is sitting beneath the ‘kadamb’ tree playing his flute, and Radha ji is going to the ‘panghat’ with a ‘matki’ to fetch water for home. This is the most typical scenario in the tales of the pastimes of Radha and Krishna. Their exchanges are being seen by their friends. The gopis accompanying Radha ji are watching from a distance and praising. So are the gwaala friends of Krishna, led by Mohan Choti.

View and enjoy this very auspicious episode from the tales of Shri Krishna.

 

Song – Teri Muraliya Meri Paayaliya, Donon Ka Kaisa Mel Re  (Gopal Krishna) (1965) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

teri muraliya
meri paayaliya
donon ka kaisa mel re
dharti naache

dekh ke preet ka khel re
teri muraliya

tere suron mein jaadu bhara hai
meri taal mein geet hai
tere suron mein jaadu bhara hai
meri taal mein geet hai
kya todegi isko duniya
janam janam ki preet hai
teri muraliya
meri paayaliya
donon ka kaisa mel re
dharti naache
gagan bhi naache
dekh ke preet ka khel re
teri muraliya
meri paayaliya

tere liye badnaam kiya mujhe
saare gokul gaaon ne
tere liye badnaam kiya mujhe
saare gokul gaaon ne
kadamb ke neeche
ghunghat kheenche
naachungi tere saamne
teri muraliya
meri paayaliya
donon ka kaisa mel re
dharti naache
gagan bhi naache
dekh ke preet ka khel re
teri muraliya
meri paayaliya

log kahen tu hai kaala kaanha
nazar na aaye rain mein
log kahen tu hai kaala kaanha
nazar na aaye rain mein
main to tumhen rakhungi kanhaiya
kajra bana ke nain mein
teri muraliya
meri paayaliya
donon ka kaisa mel re
dharti naache
gagan bhi naache
dekh ke preet ka khel re
teri muraliya
meri paayaliya

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ओ’ – ओ तेरा छुप छुप के चले आना

मेरी आवाज़ ही पहचान है
गर याद रहे

जी, अब तो सिर्फ आवाज़ ही सहारा है। और यादें। ज़िंदगी काश कुछ अरसा पहले मिली होती॰ ॰ ॰

Rafi Sb never shied away from giving playback to any actor, no matter the age, the role, or even stature in the industry. He would gladly lend his voice to new comers, as well as to lesser known artists, be they the onscreen debutants, or be they new or less popular music directors and lyricists. At times, he would even accept a very nominal amount, or even zero amount, as his fee, when a producer apologetically mentioned about his financial circumstances. Such stories are legion in the industry.

Today’s song is a ‘romantic’ duet from the 1965 film ‘Sangraam’. It is a love song, in a manner of speaking – however it is picturized on the pair that forms the ‘comic side plot’ or CSP in the film. The actors performing this song online are Maruti and Aruna Irani.

The film is produced under the banner of Film India, Bombay and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. This film is another Dara Singh starrer, and its cast of actor is listed as Dara Singh, Geetanjali, Randhawa, Swarn Kumari, Maruti, Aruna Irani, Uma Dutt, Ratnamala, Mridula, Vishwas Kunte, Amrit Rana, Yunus Parvez, Baijnath, Helen, and King Kong. The music is from the trio of music directors – Lala, Asar and Sattaar. The songs of this film are written by Aish Kanwal and Madhukar Rajasthani, and this song today is from the pen of the latter.

Comic side plot in Hindi films is akin to the concept of ‘comic relief’ of the stage and theatre dramatics. In many films, not just Hindi, but in other regional cinema also, we find that the hero has a friend or a sidekick, who in turn has a secondary storyline running in parallel with the storyline of the hero. The highlight of this storyline is the romantic angle which involves one of the supporting actresses in the film, generally a friend of the heroine. This side plot progresses alongside the main storyline. Mostly, the male protagonist in this side plot is a comedian. And the relative importance of the comedian actor, of the role played, and of the side plot itself is measured by whether this side plot pair gets to perform a song on screen. In most films, we find that yes, this side plot romantic pair gets to sing at least one, and occasionally, even more than one songs.

In this film, the side plot players are Maruti and Aruna Irani. And they have a song to play. Romance is being expressed, albeit in the typical comic style of Maruti, with a discussion on possibilities of a marital alliance thrown in for good measure. Rafi Sb’s voice is accompanied by Kamal Barot. And we get to hear a treat of an entertaining duet – romance in the side plot alleys. Enjoy.

 

 

Song – O Tera Chhup Chhup Ke Chale Aana (Sangraam) (1965) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Kamal Barot, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Lala-Asar-Sattaar
Mohammed Rafi + Kamal Barot

Lyrics

mera jhatpat se machal jaana
hoye oo ooye

bada mazaa aayega
o tera chhup chhup ke chale aana
o tera is dil pe ghazab dhaana

ओ तेरा छुप छुप के चले आना
मेरा झटपट से मचल जाना
ओ तेरा इस दिल पे ग़ज़ब ढाना
मेरी आँखों में उतर जाना
हाए
राम कसम  इस मिलने में
बड़ा मज़ा आएगा
ओ तेरा छुप छुप के चले आना
ओ तेरा इस दिल पे ग़ज़ब ढाना

मेरे प्यार का बोले कबूतर
घूं ओ घूं ओ घूं ओ घूं
मेरे प्यार का बोले कबूतर
घूं ओ घूं ओ घूं
और किसी को देना चक्कर
यूं यूं यूं यूं
और किसी को देना चक्कर
यूं यूं यूं
अच्छा नहीं दिल को जलाना
होय हाए
हाए हाये
मुश्किल है बात बनाना
ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ
मान जा मेरी बाँकी चमेली
छोड़ दे अब तड़पाना
ओ तेरा इस दिल पे ग़ज़ब ढाना
मेरी आँखों में उतर जाना
ओ तेरा छुप छुप के चले आना
मेरा झटपट से मचल जाना
हो राम कसम इस मिलने में
बड़ा मज़ा आएगा
ओ तेरा छुप छुप के चले आना
ओ तेरा इस दिल पे ग़ज़ब ढाना

शादी कर लें अब हम पक्की
चल चल चल चल
शादी कर लें अब हम पक्की
ओ चल ओ चल ओ चल
बाबुल से तू कर ले नक्की
कल कल कल कल
बाबुल से तू कर ले नक्की
कल कल कल
गर उसने कहा ना माना
हाए हाए हाये
होय होय
मैं छोड़ूँ सारा ज़माना
आ आ आ आ
देख रंगीली बादल गई तो
जहर पड़ेगा खाना
हाँ
ओ तेरा इस दिल पे ग़ज़ब ढाना
मेरी आँखों में उतर जाना
ओ तेरा छुप छुप के चले आना
मेरा झटपट से मचल जाना
होय ओ ओए
राम कसम इस मिलने में
बड़ा मज़ा आएगा
ओ तेरा छुप छुप के चले आना
ओ तेरा इस दिल पे ग़ज़ब ढाना

Missing Films of 1960s – 60
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The debut film for today is ‘Bhakt Prahlad’, the quintessential historical / mythological saga that has been repeated so often across the decades. I would say that, along with the tale of Raja Harishchandra, the story of Bhakt Prahlad probably forms the most times filmed pair of historical / mythological tales. As per Geet Kosh, the story of Bhakt Prahlad has been presented on the silver screen no less than six times – the years in chronological order being 1932, 1934, 1946, 1959, 1965 and 1967. Besides this set of films in Hindi, this tale has also been a subject of many other films released in regional cinema.

The 1965 version of this film was produced under the banner of Madan Movies, Bombay, and is directed by Kamal Sharma. The star cast consists of the following, Anjali, Bablu, BM Vyas, Malika, Sheikh, Rajkumar, Helen, Jeevankala, Ravi Kumar, Ramesh, Mohan Modi, Raja Saleem, Nazeer Kashmiri, Dalda, Maqbool, Pal Sharma, and Jagdish Vyas etc.

The film has eight songs listed in the Geet Kosh. All the songs have been penned by Bharat Vyas. The music direction is by BN Bali (aka Baldev Nath Bali). The song is sung by Asha Bhosle.

I have heard this song, long long back, and then I have not heard it for many years. Today, as I started search for an appropriate song, I came across this one. To start with the words did not ring a bell, and I simply clicked on to play. And as it started to play, the song came alive in the mind along with the memories of radio listening days.

The song is a seduction song, of course presented in a very sober and decent manner. The words and the year remind me of another similar seduction song which is from the 1965 film ‘Jewel Thief’ – “Raat Akeli Hai Bujh Gaye Diye. . .”. As I continued to listen, the second antaraa reminded me of another song from the same year. The film – ‘Mere Sanam’ and the song “Ye Hai Reshmi Zulfon Ka Andhera. . .”. Interestingly, all the three songs have been rendered by Asha Bhosle. And I am wondering – same year, three different songs from different films, all in the same genre. The subject matter i.e. seduction, is the same; but the treatment is literally ages apart. Hmmm. . . gives me an idea for a series on seduction songs; let me see if I can muster up enough songs to do a complete series.

But regardless, listen to and enjoy this gem of a song from an obscure film, reviving memories of a wonderfully melodic era.

Missing Films of 1960s – 55
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s debut film is Shri Ram Bharat Milan, from 1965.

Today is also the birth anniversary of Kavi Pradeep, one of the leading poets who wrote for Hindi films, during the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

The film is produced under the banner of RM Art Productions Bombay, and is directed by Mani Bhai Vyas. The cast of actors listed for this film are Mahipal, Anita Guha, Nirupa Roy, Rajkumar, Aruna Irani, B M Vyas, Niranjan Sharma, Vanmala, Prithviraj, Balakram, Sulochana. The listings show that there are six songs in this film, all written by Kavi Pradeep. The music for the film is composed by Pandit Shivram. This particular song is a twin dance song sung by Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar and supported by chorus.

Time was 1960s, and religious films still had a popular following. And the producers community also had an ongoing interest, to continue making films based on our scriptures and ancient history, ensuring that these stories do not fade away from public memory. Their objective was also to ensure that the teachings of the epic stories associated with religion, continue to be passed on to the newer generations. It was a matter of personal and collective responsibility that the film makers and other artists would continue to get together and make such films. Sadly, in the recent decades, this awareness and this responsibility has become a thing of the past.

In 1965, two films were released narrating the story of brotherly love between Sri Ram and Sri Bharat. The other film is titled ‘Bharat Milap’. That film has already made its debut on our blog.

The scene enacted in this song is during the initial days of the vanvaas – the sojourn of Sri Ram to the forests for a period of 14 years, accompanied by Sita ji and Lakshman Bhaiya. As they reach the banks of River Ganga, they have to seek help of the boatmen to cross the river. This episode is a one of the most emotional and well documented episodes in the Ramayan. Nishad Raj Guh, the chief of the boatmen community, and Kevat, one of the boatmen in this community, play very significant roles in this episode.

As is also given in the description of this episode in the Ramayan, the boatmen community do not want Sri Ram to leave their humble village, and request Him to consider staying with them, for the duration of the forest sojourn. But of course Sri Ram has other things in mind, that He has to accomplish during these fourteen years. In this clip from the film, this request to Sri Ram is being presented as a dance. The two lead dancers – I am not able to place a name to these faces, and I request other knowledgeable readers to please help to identify them.

A very interesting thing about the construction of the song. The song is presented in two stanzas. As one hears them, and then also views the lyrics, one realizes that each stanza is quite long (yes, a five plus minutes song has just two stanzas). And the construction of the stanzas is quite complex. Kudos to both the songwriter and the music director to build a very attractive song with such a complex composition.

Listen to and enjoy is delightful song of request, as the boatmen families are requesting to Sri Ram to make their village as His abode for the duration of the vanvaas. They are promising that they will build a city for Him, as beautiful as Ayodhya, His own home town. And they also promise that they will also bring the Saryu river to this place.

A wonderful song to enjoy.
