27th August – a traveling tour, a distant land, and an unexpected loss; a loss that is as numbing even today, as shattering as it was when it happened then. 1976, and a hotel in Detroit, USA. The soul of the voice and the voice of the soul – both were stilled forever. A life of just 53 years. And a singing career that was wonderfully placed. Both cut short by the matters of the heart – matters that could not be set right.

Today, we remember Mukesh, through his songs, in an effort to re-live the times. And to enjoy the listening pleasure that this voice still continues to be forty two years after his departure.

Mahesh ji’s wonderful selection “Yahaan Radha Kund Hai Shyam Kund Hai” from an obscure film ‘Subhash Chandra’ has already posted earlier in the day today. Here is one more song in the memory of this soulful voice.

The film is ‘Aayega Aanewaala’ from 1967. This film is produced and directed by Kewal Misra for his home company, Kewal Productions, Bombay. The list of actors reads as follows – Kumkum, Sanjeev Kumar, Sabita Chatterjee, Ram Mohan, Kundan, Rajan Haksar, Chaman Puri, Uma Khosla, Ravi Khanna, Bela Bose, Khairati, and Agha.

There are six songs in this film, all written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and the music is composed by the duo of Sapan Jagmohan. One song of this film has already been posted here. This is the second song coming on board.

The filming location for this song is Simla (in Himachal Pradesh) – a very scenic and a popular vacation resort, right from the pre-independence days. The song is picturized as what appears to be a picnic song. Sanjeev Kumrar is wooing and teasing Kum Kum, telling her that he is a seasoned player, and that he is not easily perturbed.

The song is a lively, playful song. In the voice of Mukesh, it becomes more endearing. The voice suits all types of emotions – even naughty playfulness. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Hum Wo Nahin Jo Aapke Kadmon Mein Dil Ko Rakh Den (Aayega Aanewaala) (1967) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
teri nazar ka raaz hain hum
bade zamaana saaz hain hum
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
badi haseen hain ye adaayen
kaho hamen na aazmaayen
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum
tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum  
tumhen kasam hai maan jaao
hamen ye tewar na dikhaao
kyon ke zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

6 August is remembered as Hiroshima day. It was on this day that in 1945 that Hiroshima became the first unfortunate city to be subjected to the dropping of Atom Bomb.

Three days later, on 9 august 1945, another bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Kokura was the primary target, but that was obscured by cloud and smoke, so the secondary target of Nagasaki became the unfortunate victim of this second atom bomb, named ‘Fat Man’. The bomb exploded at 11:02 a.m. at an approximate altitude of 1,800 feet. 35, 000 people, nearly 15 % of the population of the city were killed.

These two bombings finally persuaded Japan to surrender and that signalled the end of second World war.

The destruction that Atom bombs could cause have led to consternation among many people. It also made some countries realise that they too needed to have atom bombs for their own safety (as a deterrence). Some countries developed the capabilities on their own while a few others did so by stealing nuclear technologies from other countries.

There have been calls to ban nuclear bombs. The first five nuclear bomb owning countries have formed their own exclusive club. Their rules are quite discriminatory. They can have their nuclear bombs, but other countries are prohibited to have them. Moreover, some of these nuclear powered countries keep on threatening others about using them. USA have threatened to use they atom bombs many times in the past. North Korea is well known to threaten its neighbours and even USA with its atom bomb. A few former Pakistani politicians used to threaten India with their atom bomb quite regularly.

To say that killing by atom bombs is bad but killing by normal bombs is not bad is hypocritical. If one looks at people killed during “normal” bombing, then more people were killed by “normal” bombing of Tokyo on 10 march 1945 than were killed by either of the two atom bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Likewise more people have been killed by AK 47 rifles than by Atom bombs. So ultimately the call should be to end violence by banning all kinds of weapons. It is not that atom bombs should be banned but “normal” weapons should be used with impunity. In fact, defence industry is a thriving industry where suppliers often sell the same weapons to two warring nations. There are some countries that spend more money on their military than for the development of their people.

“Aman”(1967) is a movie that deals with the subject of atom bomb and its effects on the victims. “Rajendra Kumar is a doctor who volunteers to go to Japan to help survivors of the Hiroshima-Nagasaki atomic blasts. The film deals with his experiences in Japan, the physical and mental effects of the atomic explosions on the survivors, and so on.”- This is what Raja wrote about this movie while covering a song from the movie.

Though the movie covers a serious and sobering topic, a Hindi movie cannot help having its share of songs. “Aman”(1967) had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details:-

The song, the seventh and final song from the movie is sung by Rafi. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. The song speaks about the barbaadi of Hiroshima. Today is 9 august 2018, and atom bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on 9 august 1945, exactly 73 years ago.

With this sobering song, “Aman”(1967) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Bhakt Prahlad”(1967), originally made in Tamil and other south Indian languages was dubbed in Hindi as well.

The movie was directed by Narayanmurthy for Veerappan and company, Madras. It had S V Ranga Rao, Anjalidevi, Rajendranath, Dhumal, L Vijaylaxmi, Geetanjali, Nirmala etc in it.

The Hindi dubbed version had as many as 17 songs in it which were penned by P L Santoshi.

Here is the first song from “Bhakt Prahlad”(1967) to appear in the blog. HFGK is silent about the singers of the song, but the voice sounds like Usha Mangeshkar to me. The song is picurised on the child artist who plays the title role of Prahlad.

Music ws composed by Rajeshwar Rao and Rajgopal Krishnan but the distribution of songs between them is not known. So I have decided to credit them jointly for music direction.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identfy the singer as well as the actor in the picturisation.

With this song, “Bhakt Prahlad”(1967) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Hey prabhu jyot jagaao aisi (Bhakt Prahlad)(1967) Singer-Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-P L Santoshi, MD-Rajeshwar Rao-Raj Gopalkrishnan

Lyrics

hey prabhu jyot jagaa aisi
hey prabhu jyot jagaa
mere man mein base tu sada
haan
man mein base tu sada

jab gajendr par bheer padi to
usey bachaane tu hi aaya
jab gajendr par bheer padi to
usey bachaane tu hi aaya
maare kisko taare kisko
maare kisko taare kisko
sab kuchh hai bas teri maaya
sab kuchh hai bas teri maaya

hey prabhu jyot jaga aisi
he prabhu jyot jaga
mere man mein base tu sada
haan
man mein base tu sada

Missing Films of 1960s – 77
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

For quite some time, I was missing this film, thinking of the film ‘Poonam Ki Raat’, a 1965 film with music by Salil Chaudhry that is already Yippeee’d here on our blog. Careful scrutiny of the list prepared by Khyati Ben, brings me back to this film from 1967 – ‘Poonam Ka Chaand’.

Not much information is available about this film, other than what is present in the Geet Kosh. The songs of this film are partially available, but none of them seem to have as yet been published online. Once again, as far as I could search, and I know my search is not the best. 😉

The Geet Kosh lists this as a fantasy film, produced under the banner of MR Productions, Bombay and is directed by Suresh Tripathi. The cast of actors is briefly listed as Mahipal, Jaishri Gadkar, Sundar, Krishna Kumari, Heera Sawant, and Ram Singh. Hmmm. . . Mahipal is still active in lead roles in the year 1967 – wow.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Two lyricists are mentioned – Amar Chaturvedi and Saraswati Kumar Deepak. And a very interesting state of affairs emerges. 4 of the songs are written by Amar Chaturvedi and 5 by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. As per the listings, gramophone records seem to have been manufactured only for the songs written by Amar Chaturvedi. The records of the songs by Saraswati Kumar are either not manufactured, or are rare and not yet available in public domain. And so for practical purposes, only 4 songs of this film are available.

The name Amar Chaturvedi is new for the blog. He seems to be a one-film career person, well almost. In the Geet Kosh, his name appears for just this film, and one more song in the film ‘Truck Driver’ of 1970. Besides that, his name does not appear anywhere else, not even in any unreleased films listings. And for that reason, there is no other information available about this poet. I request other readers and friends to please add information about him, if available.

The song is a very lilting melody, appears to be a group dance song, in which a lady is being teased by her friends, who are saying that she is looking so beautiful, so tell us who is the person you are going to ensnare. The words are very lovely and enticing. The music and the arrangement of the chorus voices is very endearing. A wonderful song that has remained obscure for so many decades. Listen and enjoy.

Song – O Gori Chhori Kis Ka Karogi Shikaar  (Poonam Ka Chaand) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Amar Chaturvedi, MD – Neenu Majumdar

Missing Films of 1960s – 76
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Hindi cinema encompasses quite a few genres and categories. It is a sad statement that the industry has almost always been controlled and driven more by the financial expectations. The earliest model of large studios as centers of film production activities, was somewhat immune to the craziness of financial pressures. The studio system had its own cons, but it provided a larger stability and sustainability to the production effort and to the team belonging to the studio.

It was all too soon that people with all kinds of mental inclinations realized both the power of this medium, and the possibility of landing a jackpot with a hit film. This awareness brought in all kinds of unscrupulous elements, as well as businessmen with an urge to invest unaccounted money in a gamble to make more money. If I recall correctly, the 1949 film ‘Kalpana’ touched upon this aspect, displaying a cruel brazen-ness with which the financiers and the touts dealt with the artists. The grossly dismal record the industry has in terms of its own record keeping and archiving, is an outcome of this ‘jackpot’ mentality – the actual owners of film actually cared a zilch for the film itself. With every venture, the financier would launch a new production banner. One can well imagine the ill effects of this lack of continuity and ownership for the artistic product itself.

But I digress – this discussion on film financing models, another time. I started with the genres and categories, with the purpose to highlight how some genres and categories have fallen by the wayside, over the decades. One of the casualties of the projected “lack of public interest” and the “lack of return on investment” has been the genre of religious pictures. Till the end of 1970s, or maybe even 1980s, there used to be quite a number of offerings of religious films produced every year. In one of his articles, our dear Arun ji has presented an analysis of this aspect – the number of religious films produced on average per year, and the progressive decline of this number over the decades. These days, one rarely hears about a religious offering coming from the mainline cinema. TV, yes, we do hear more about serials on religious themes. Or maybe the investment by the end user, in terms of time and money, is getting channelized much more towards TV productions and the live kathas (discourses) – there literally has been an explosion in the number of kathas being organized and being attended by the people.

The reason for this preamble, of course, is that today’s debut film from 1960s is a religious film of certain importance, from 1967. The film is ‘Badrinath Yatra’. Produced under the banner of Mewar Films, Bombay and is directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The star cast of this film is listed as Nirupa Roy, Abhi Bhattacharya, Sulochana, Indira, Jeevan, Sundar, Niranjan Sharma, Indira Bansal, Fazlu, Nandini Desai, and Kukku Desai amongst others.

There is a huge importance attached to pilgrimage, in our religion. Our land has been blessed from the very beginning of time itself, with famous and important temples which are the abodes of the Gods in our pantheon of worship. The origins and foundation histories of many of these temples and places is lost in the antiquity of time. For many of these temples and places of pilgrimage, there are references in our historical records – and by historical I mean our books of scriptures, which contain details of many such places of pilgrimage being established by protagonists of these histories like Sri Ram, Sri Krishna, the Pandvas, and our Rishis etc. Our histories abound with such tales in detail.

In the 8th century AD, there appeared a champion who measured the breadth and length of this sub-continent – Adi Shankaracharya. He travelled across the land with the mission to reestablish the importance of the Vedantic Dharma, and to re-ignite the lamp of worship in the temples. He established four matha (मठ) in the four regions, which became the four primary centers of learning and research into the Vedic knowledge. These four centers were placed in proximity to the four main destinations of pilgrimage of primary importance for the followers of the Dharma. These pilgrimage places are Badrinath in the north, Puri in the east, Rameshwaram in the south and Dwarka in the west. Each of these four pilgrimage places are historically important with a detailed history about their establishment and their antiquity being described in our scriptures.

Over the ages, these four have been collectively referred to as ‘Chaar Dhaam’ – literally ‘Four Destinations’. It is ordained in our teachings that a person must pay their homage and worship at each one of these pilgrimages, at least once in their life time. A significant importance is attached to completing this journey. Further, the same teachings also exhort the children to comfortably facilitate such a journey for their parents, and enable them to pay homage and complete their worship at these four centers of pilgrimage.

Since the early decades of Hindi cinema, a number of films have been produced as travelogues or “यात्रा” (yatra), covering one or more holy centers of pilgrimage. This film also covers the journey to the ‘chaar dhaam’ or the four holy destinations. This particular song appears more than once in the film, and I am including three different video clips from three different points in the storyline sequence. In the clips, we can see Abhi Bhattacharya, as the obedient son, who is taking his parents (roles played by Sulochana and Niranjan Sharma) for their journey to the ‘chaar dhaam’. The storyline belongs to a certain unspecified era in history, as we can see that Abhi Bhattacharya is even carrying his parents in a yoke shoulder carrier – a long pole with large baskets hanging at two ends, large enough for a human person to sit in. In north India, this shoulder carrier is called “वेहंगी” (wehngi). Folks familiar with the stories from the scriptures will recall the story of Shravan Kumar, the young boy who carried his old and blind parents in a wehngi for pilgrimage.

The song is written by Madan, and is composed by Pt Shivram. The singing voice is that of Mahendra Kapoor. Listening to this song evokes strong emotions in my heart. Not that I have not heard this song before, but now, as I listened to it again repeatedly for lyrics etc., the words and the tune is simply at home with me in my heart. Listen to this beautiful evocation that covers so many philosophies of life. And think.

Missing Films of 1960s – 69
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This is a tried and tested mechanics. Whenever I have tried it, it has always worked like a charm. Maybe one should work on deriving some axiomatic theorem from this experience.

Dig out a film no one has heard about, even yourself. Try and locate some songs of this film. One or more artists associated with the song should be totally unfamiliar and less known. Check out the songs. You will find a song or songs which are so wonderfully attractive, that the mind is dumbfounded – where have these gems been buried, and that so for decades. Just does not settle into some sensible logic.

The year is 1967, not too far faded back in memory. The film is ‘Jungle Ki Hoor’ – an absolute unknown entity. I mean, now living in the age of Geet Kosh, we do see the listings, and know – OK, there is a film of that year with this name. But nothing more than that. And the situation does not change much, since no additional information can be sought out for films of such temper.

But then, you lay hands on some songs of this film. As I have been able to locate and acquire – a couple of songs of this film. Apparently just one record of this film has been traced so far in public domain. I know this film is listed in the homework list of missing films of 1960s. So I pull out the songs, listen to them, and am bowled over.

The song presented today is written by Sajan Bihari – a totally unfamiliar name. As I checked the Geet Kosh, I find this name appear only in one more film – ‘Bahut Door’ – an unreleased film from 1940s. Incidentally, the music director for both these films is BN Bali (aka Baldev Nath Bali). So sometimes in the 1940s, these two artists came together and created some songs. And then after almost two decades, they reunite for another film in 1967. As far as BN Bali is concerned, we encounter his name in some more listings, but Sajan Bihari – that’s it.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of NJ Productions, Bomby and is directed by SM Sheikh. The cast of actors includes Azaad, Indira, Khurshid, Tuntun, Habeeb, Maqbool, Nazeer Kashmiri, Fazal Khan, V Kishore, B Rupa, Noorjahan, Anand (Mamaji), Indian Charlie, Waliul Khan and Sheikh himself. Geet Kosh lists six songs for this film, with two songwriters identified – Madan and Sajan Bihari. Madan is not so much of an unknown entity now. Very active in the decade of 1960s and 1970s, he has almost a hundred songs to his credit listed in the Geet Kosh. And we have seven of his songs already showcased on our blog.

Sajan Bihari, on the other hand, is a mystery. Only three songs listed in the entire Geet Kosh, and the first one to find its place on our blog. I would request the more knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this lyricist. And about this film also, if possible.

The singing voice is Krishna Kalle. A very beautifully rendered song, I am sure you will love it on first hear, as I did. Enjoy.

Song – Aaj Khushi Ka Jaam Le  (Jungle Ki Hoor) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Sajan Bihari, MD – BN Bali

Thoda Sa Dil Laga Ke Dekh. . .

Film – ‘Musafirkhana’ from 1955, she plays the role Mary, the love interest of Frankie (Johnny Walker). Mary’s mother fancies another match for her daughter, and Frankie is contemplating suicide on that account. As it often happens in films, Mary breaks out into a song, trying to lift up Frankie’s dying spirits.

1958 – she plays the role of Nargis, the bosom friend of Sheela (Nutan), in this confused and comic scenario of mixed identities and true love – ‘Aakhiri Daao’. Funny to note that Nargis is her real name. And casting credit lists her assumed name. Always life is so interesting.

On to 1960 and ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi’. Now she is Sheela, the naughty and playful nurse, who is reprimanded by the head nurse for putting on too much lipstick. Then it is ‘Half Ticket’ in 1962. As Lily, a partner in crime with Raja Babu (Pran) – the scene is simply hilarious, as she tries again and again to pat Vijay’s (Kishore Kumar) bottom – actually his back pocket, searching for an expensive diamond that Raja Babu has hidden there. There is a whole music and dance sequence, with a tape recorder keeping company, as she tries to extract the stolen goods from Vijay, without letting him know.

In 1965, she is Stella, the au pair companion to Rita (Nanda), in the musical romantic drama ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’. 1970, moving into senior roles; the film is ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, and she herself is Rita, the British Indian wife of Sharma (Madan Puri), always with a smoking cigarette in her hand.

Fast forward forty years, to 2012 – she is very much on screen, this time playing the mother in law to Nargis (Daisy Irani) and grandmother of Farhad (Boman Irani) in ‘Shirin Farhad Ki To Nikal Padi’.

6th March earlier this year, she passed away in her sleep, just some weeks short of her 89th birthday. A memorable career for more than six decades, with quite over 200 films in her portfolio, and a number of very successful TV serials thrown in for good measure. Nargis Rabadi – she would have been 89 today.

Born this day in 1929, Nargis’ father was a priest in the Parsi temple. She was just 3 years old when her father passed away. Her mother raised her two daughters, working as a cook at the Parsi community festivals. After completing her studies, her elder sister got a job as an office secretary at Johnson & Johnson. So when Nargis completed her studies, she also came to Johnson & Johnson, working in the packaging department.

A close family friend and uncle, Chinuu Mama, was associated with the film industry. One thing led to another, and Nargis was introduced to Sheikh Mukhtar, who at that time was searching for a second lead lady for his film ‘Ustad Pedro’ (1951). At first, he was concerned that Nargis may not be able to handle the Hindi/Urdu dialogue, being a Parsi. But Nargis talked to him and the director Harish, and they were convinced she could do the role. That’s how she got her first break in films.

And with the first break, she also got a new name. The film’s director was concerned that her name might be confused with another rising star of those years – Nargis. And so he suggested her to change her name to Shammi. She did, and the name served her well for the remainder of her life. In later years, she became to be better known as Shammi Aunty.

Stringing through the cameos above, an interesting thing emerges. Her name is Nargis. She changes that to Shammi. In the 1958 film ‘Aakhiri Daao’, her name in credit appears as ‘Shammi’, and her screen name is Nargis. Then in 2012, her screen name is not clearly evident (in ‘Shirin Farhad. . .’), but then her daughter in law (Daisy Irani) has the screen name of Nargis. 🙂

Alongside ‘Ustad Pedro’, Harish was also directing another film at the same time – ‘Malhaar’ (produced by Mukesh, the singer). Impressed by her performance during the shooting of ‘Ustad Pedro’, he cast her as the heroine of ‘Malhaar’ opposite to another new face, Arjun. Although ‘Ustad Pedro’ did good business and was popular, ‘Malhaar’ failed to impress at the box office. The prospects of growing as a leading lady in the industry slowly receded.

But on the other hand, she became very much in demand for second lead female roles. Especially if the role demanded some comic goofiness, Shammi was quite the first name that the producers thought of. With little breaks here and there, she continued her cinematic journey, playing oh so many an endearing roles, leaving behind indelible memories. The wide eyed shocked look on her face as she opens the door to find her grandson (Boman Irani) standing there, as if coming out of a melee – is simply priceless. So many more of such moments flicker through the mind’s eye, as I pull together this piece today.

The song that I present today, however, is on a more somber note, the words expressing the very emotion that the heart wants to convey – “तुम चले॰॰॰ क्यों चले”. The film is ‘Awaara Ladki’ from 1967. This is an Asha Bhosle solo rendition that is picturized on a much younger Shammi. In the clip, we also see Sudesh Kumar – with a very lost look on his face, walking away from her, and then the song begins.

It is a peculiar situation – I am reminded of the one earlier song that I had posted from this film. The emotional mood of the song and the situation of that song is precisely the same – Sudesh Kumar + lost look + walking away, only the lady singing that song is different. It is Sheela Ramani singing “Arre Jaane Waale Nazar To Mila Ja”. Discovery of these two similar songs indicate some sort of a love triangle in the film’s story. Interesting – prompts me to watch this film.

This song is not listed in the Geet Kosh, although the print does indicate that there are more songs than the four listed. Music is by Dhaniram, and the uploader of this video clip, a dear friend Dharmesh from Rohtak, has indicated that the lyrics are from the pen of Kaif Irfani. So I will go by that information for now.

Bidding a good bye to a dear goofy artist, and to the long innings she has played on screen. Rest in peace, Nargis; or maybe I should say, wallow in mirth Shammi Aunty, wherever you are.

Adios and farewell.

 

Song – Tum Chale. . . Kyon Chale  (Awaara Ladki) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Kaif Irfani, MD – Dhaniram

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lyrics

Missing Films of 1960s – 63
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Shamma Jali To Jala Parwaana
Pyaar Bana Afsaana. . .

The film, ‘Pyaar Bana Afsaana’ was eventually never released. However the songs were already recorded and released. This song caught the attention of the listening public, and it did become quite a popular memory in the radio listening days.

Remembering Krishna Kalle – three years ago this day, she passed away at the age of 74.

In 1957, when she was declared the winner of a national level singing award for young talent, she received this award from the hands of the then President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad. More awards and recognitions followed in the subsequent years. In 1965, she was honored as the ‘Golden Voice of India’.

In 1960 she joined the All India Radio in Bombay (now Mumbai). However, within three or four years, she made her debut as a playback singer in the film industry. As per Geet Kosh, her first song came in the film ‘Daanveer Karna’ in 1965.  She continued to be active in both the Hindi and Marathi cinema, and has also sung some songs in Kannada films. Given the situation of the industry, this talented young singer did never make it to the top level of playback singing in the industry. She sang over 200 songs in Hindi films in an active career that spanned from mid 1960s to mid 1980s. Besides, she also has to her credit, about 100 songs in the Marathi film. In addition, there are almost another 100 non-film songs and bhajans recorded by her.

Today’s song is from the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’. This is a Sheikh Mukhtar film that is produced under the banner of Shimla Productions, and is directed by R Thakar. Besides Sheikh Mukhtar, the star cast is led by Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum. The other players in this films are Bhagwan, Madan Puri, Uma Dutt, Neelam, Nandini, Tuntun, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lakshmichaya, Kundan, Dilip Dutt, and Tiwari etc.

The story is a typical variation on the Sheikh Mukhtar tales. Shankar (Sheikh Mukhtar) is on the run from the police, for a crime believes he has committed; but actually he himself is mistaken. He flees from village and comes to Bombay, and becomes part of a gang led by Khan (Uma Dutt). Khan is a involved in criminal activities, but he is a man of his word. Shankar’s sister Kum Kum, also comes to Bombay in search of her brother. Sanjeev Kumar is an upright police officer. By a sequence of events, Kum Kum and Sanjeev Kumar meet at the police station, and he takes her to his home, since she has no place to stay. Love blossoms between them. Madan Puri, an old adversary of Shankar from the village, also comes to Bombay, and also starts working for Khan. Some more predictable events happen and then all is sorted out for a happy ending.

Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, three of which are written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and two by Akhtar Romani. The sixth song does not have a lyricist name mentioned against it. Today’s song is from the pen of Naqsh Lyallpuri. The music direction of this film is by Vedpal.

This is a ‘villain’s den’ song. Kum Kum has reached the adda of Khan. Khan is enamored by her beauty and wants her to dance for him. At first she refuses. He then promises her that no harm whatsoever will come to her and that he takes the responsibility to protect her. Since she has a purpose i.e. to locate her brother, hesitatingly she agrees. And the song follows. The song is delightful and melodious, and a very pleasing listen. When the song ends, Madan Puri makes an entrance. The film is available online, in case you may be curious as to what happens next. 🙂

With this song, the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’ makes a debut on our blog today. Enjoy.

Song – Aankhen Pyaasi Lab Hain Pyaase  (Gunehgaar) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Naqsh Layallpuri, MD – Vedpal

Lyrics

pyaala bhar ke
jo hamne poochha

aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase

saagar utha saaqiya

aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

masti ka paighaam banin hain
zulfon ki rangeen ghataayen
masti ka paighaam banin hain
zulfon ki rangeen ghataayen
saaz dilon ke chhed rahi hai. . .
paayal ki betaab sadaayen
paayal ki betaab sadaayen
chhed inhin saazon ki dhun par
chhed inhin saazon ki dhun par
naghma naya saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

aaj utha na koi pyaasa
mehfil ki awaaz yahi hai
aaj utha na koi pyaasa
mehfil ki awaaz yahi hai
jaam pe jaam diye ja saaqi
jeene ka andaaz yahi hai
jeene ka andaaz yahi hai
roz kahaan laati hain raaten
roz kahaan laati hain raaten
aisi fizaa saaqia
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

प्याला भर के
जो हमने पूछा
जी किसको पहले
कहाँ से पहले
तमाम महफिल पुकार उठी
जी हमको पहले
यहाँ से पहले

आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया

मस्ती का पैग़ाम बनीं हैं
ज़ुल्फों की रंगीन घटाएँ
मस्ती का पैग़ाम बनीं हैं
ज़ुल्फों की रंगीन घटाएँ
साज दिलों के छेड़ रही है॰॰॰
पायल की बेताब सदाएं
पायल की बेताब सदाएं
छेड़ इन्हीं साज़ों की धुन पर
छेड़ इन्हीं साज़ों की धुन पर
नग़मा नया साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया

आज उठे ना कोई प्यासा
महफिल की आवाज़ यही है
आज उठे ना कोई प्यासा
महफिल की आवाज़ यही है
जाम पे जाम दिये जा साक़ी
जीने का अंदाज़ यही है
जीने का अंदाज़ यही है
रोज़ कहाँ लाती हैं रातें
रोज़ कहाँ लाती हैं रातें
ऐसी फ़िज़ा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया

Blog Day : 3501 Post No. : 14065

Missing Films of 1960s – 59
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

So, on the 3501st day on this blog, I introduce to you the debut film for today.

The film is ‘Sardaar’ from 1967. This year continues to be very fertile, and still another four, and maybe five more films from this year are next in line.

The production banner is M.U.N. films Bombay, and the film is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The film is categorized as a costume drama, with the cast of actors listed as Dara Singh, Sheikh Mukhtar, Ajit, Nishi, Helen, Jayant, Chandrashekhar, Tiwari, Maruti, Arvind Pandya, and Jeevankala. Now this is a very impressive ensemble – we have Sheikh Mukhtar, and Dara Singh, and Ajit, and Chandrashekhar, and Nishi, and Helen, and Jayant, and Tiwari – wow.

The film has seven songs listed. All the songs are written by Asad Bhopali, and the music is composed by Usha Khanna. As I scan the list of songs, some are very familiar and popular songs, and I wonder this film has managed to stay away from being represented on our blog so far.

Today’s song is about the memories of childhood love. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Once you start listening to the song, I am sure the memory cells will respond – ok, well this one, yes, it is a familiar favorite from the radio listening days. Enjoy.

Song – Mera Tumhara Afsaana Hai Kitna Puraana  (Sardaar) (1967) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo
mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

kyon ji tumko yaad to hongi
pehli pehli pyaar ki baaten
pehli pehli pyaar ki baaten
chhoti si ik bhool pe laakhon
hoti then taqraar ki baaten
hoti then taqraar ki baaten
mera wo rooth ke jaana
tumhaara manaana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

din mein sau sau baar tumhaare
paas aane ko ji kehta hai
paas aane ko ji kehta hai
in aankhon mein daal ke aankhen
kho jaane ko ji kehta hai
kho jaane ko ji kehta hai
chhod ke dil tadpaana
mohabbat nibhaana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना
है कितना पुराना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो
मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना
है कितना पुराना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो

क्यों जी तुमको याद तो होंगी
पहली पहली प्यार की बातें
पहली पहली प्यार की बातें
छोटी सी इक भूल पे लाखों
होती थीं तक़रार की बातें
होती थीं तक़रार की बातें
मेरा वो रूठ के जाना
तुम्हारा मनाना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो

दिन में सौ सौ बार तुम्हारे
पास आने को जी कहता है
पास आने को जी कहता है
इन आँखों में दाल के आँखें
खो जाने को जी कहता है
खो जाने को जी कहता है
छोड़ के दिल तड़पाना
मोहब्बत निभाना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो

मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना
है कितना पुराना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो
