Recently, I came across on internet an offer for sale of an used Extended Play (EP) record of the songs of ‘Aaj Raat Ko’, the film which I had never heard of. The EP was released in 1975 by Polydor India Ltd which had 4 songs – 2 songs on each side. All the songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri which were set to music by R D Burman. On checking these songs on one of the video sharing platforms, I found that all the 4 songs were uploaded in audio format. The songs were in the typical mould of R D Burman’s compositions. In one of the audio clips, a record-cover photograph was displayed with a couple of scenes from the film showing Saira Bano, Sujit Kumar and Vinod Mehra. I could not locate the full film on-line.

The description given by the uploader of the audio clip revealed that the film, ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ remained unreleased for reasons unknown. Probably, one of the reasons could be the sudden departure of Vinod Khanna who was one of the main actors in the film, to join Rajneesh in the USA. The film was revived when Vinod Khanna returned from USA in 1985. It got Censor Board certificated on January 25, 1988 under a new title ‘Faisla’ (1988). According to a comment recorded by the son of the producer of the film on the video clip of one of the songs, his father, the producer suffered huge losses due to unprofessional behaviour of some actors and the film was delayed by 13 years. According to him, this film never got released in theaters and was ultimately sold to distributors for paltry sums. The film was released on satellite television.

‘Faisla’ (1988) is now available for watching on one of the video sharing platforms but the print is so bad that images look blurred. There is loss of continuity in some places as a result of which the story in the film looks disjointed. The songs in the film are muted probably on copyright ground.

‘Faisla’(1988) was produced under the banner of Noor Jahan Films and was directed by S Ramanathan. It was a multi-cast film with Ashok Kumar, Saira Bano, Vinod Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Mehmood, Sujeet Kumar, Chandrashekhar, Ranjeet, Gajanan Jagirdar, and Bindu forming the main star cast. It is a typical Bollywood film catering to the expectations of the type of film audience who loves masala films having action, dance and comedy, villain etc. As usual, in such type of film, the story ends with victory over the evils.

All the 4 songs which were in the original film ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975, UR) have been retained in ‘Faisla’ (1988). I am presenting the first song ‘champa khili daar palak jhoole pyaar’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by Mohammed Rafi and picturised on Vinod Mehra. Saira Bano is also present in the song sequence. Fortunately, video clip of the song is available in which the song starts with humming and two lines of the song rendered by Asha Bhosle who sings for Saira Bano. The audio clip does not have the humming by Asha Bhosle and is also shorter in terms of duration than the video clip as there is no repetition of lines of antaras. While the audios of the songs have been released under the original title. ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975), the video clip of the song has been taken from ‘Faisla’ (1988).

One can make out from the voice of Mohammed Rafi that song was recorded sometime in early 1970s. During the same period, Mohammed Rafi in combination with Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman had also rendered songs of the same mood, like ‘goriya kahaan tera desh re’ (Caravan, 1971) and ‘gori ke haath mein jaise ye chella’ (Mela, 1971).

With this song, ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975, UR)/Faisala (1988) makes its debut on the Blog.

During the course of my exercise to pick up Hindi songs in Bangla films, I have gone through many Bangla films with their basic details such as the director, story writer, star cast, lyricist, music director, playback singers etc. In the list of lyricists in any Bangla film, if I find the name of the lyricist from Hindi films, I am almost certain that there would be at least one Hindi song in that Bangla film. In some cases, I found that though the name of the Hindi film lyricist was not mentioned, still one or two Hindi songs were found in such Bangla films.

During one of such exercise, I got to know of a Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962). The film was directed by Dilip Bose. Although, I could not find the name of Hindi lyricist for the film, the names of playback singers like Manna Dey, Mukesh, and Asha Bhosle gave me a glimmer of hope that there could be at least one Hindi song in the film. The music director for the Bangla film was Ved Pal. But I scored a blank on this count. However, during the searching the songs on the internet, I came across not one but three Hindi songs under the film’s title ‘Sorry Madam’ (Unreleased). Some further searches on the internet revealed a story behind this unreleased film which I was not aware of it. The film was to be a remake of Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) which was a box office success. Hindi remake with the same title was to be produced and directed by Dilip Bose who had also directed its Bangla version. But the film remained unfinished because the director, Dilip Bose went into deep depression after a personal tragedy.

Dilip Bose started his filmy career as actor in Bangla films ‘Kashinath’ (1943) and ‘Bichar’ (1943). I could not get any lead as to what he did during 1943-1960. In 1960, he directed his first Bangla film ‘Dui Bechaara’ (1960). The next Bangla film which he directed was ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) with Biswajeet and Sandhya Roy in lead roles. ‘Chaandi Ki Deewar’ (1964) was his first directorial venture in Hindi film. During his filmy career, he directed 5 Bangla films, 6 Hindi films and 10 Bhojpuri films. He also acted in about a dozen Bangla films which included Satyajit Ray’s ‘Charulata’ (1964). He also did some smaller roles in a few Bhojpuri films besides story and screen-play writing.

In 1979, after directing Hindi films like ‘Chaandi Ki Deewar’ (1964), ‘Sansaar’ (1971), ‘Thokar’ (1974), ‘Badnaam’ (1975) and ‘Sikka’ (1976), he decided to produce and direct the Hindi remake of his Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) with Raj Kiran and Kajal Kiran in the lead roles. Six songs, all rendered by Mohammed Rafi (some with Asha Bhosle) were recorded in December 1979 under the music direction of Chitragupt. However, Dilip Bose was struck with a personal tragedy when he suddenly lost his wife. Being a sentimental person, Dilip Bose was so much devastated by this tragedy that he went into deep depression for a long time and the film remained unfinished. After recovering from the depression, Dilip Bose concentrated mainly on directing Bhojpuri films. Dilip Bose died in 2002.

Even though 6 songs of the unfinished film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1979) were recorded in December 1979, no gramophone records or CDs were issued. So, they remained unavailable to the public. It was only after the death of the music director, Chitragupt in January 1991 that the tape containing the songs were discovered.  It was decided to release the song in an album. However, by that time, Hindi film music scene had changed and composition style of these six songs sounded old to the music companies who were not interested in releasing the songs. It was only after the success of ‘Veer Zara’ (2004) in which the old-style song composition of Madan Mohan became a hit that a fresh effort was made to release the songs. A music publishing company agreed to release the songs. The tape of the songs were sent to Belgium to digitally restore them to the highest sound quality. Thus,  the songs which were recorded in December 1979 had to wait for 30 years to get them released in an album ‘Teri Adaa’ in 2009.

I am presenting one of the six songs, “Dekho Ji Waado Karo Ke Door Kabhi Tum Na Rahoge” from the unfinished film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1979). The song is written by Kaafil Aazar which is set to music by Chitragupt.

What an extraordinary promise this is.

We had a small get together of music lovers, earlier in the day today. And for the day it is, part of our conversation revolved around Rafi Sb, and his persona, and his legacy. ‘God’s Own Man’ is the phrase expressed by one of the gathering. Certainly, all people are God’s people. But then some are special. They are ‘God’s Own People’. Humble and giving – the two traits that stand out as shining beacons in this industry that is famous for cutthroat competition, and the rule of money power. So much corruption and cruelty bleeds into it, and in turn, generates more cruelty and heartlessness.

“सावन की परी चुप चुप है खड़ी

I came across this song for the first time, few weeks ago. It has been sitting in the hard disk for quite some time now, one of a set of songs of Rafi Sb that Bakshish Singh ji gave to me. On some prompting thought in the mind, I just played this song, as I was searching for a song starting with ‘स’, and goodness, just could not believe that this wonderful gem of a song has been sitting away from mainstream listening. Later, when I checked online, this song is posted on YT more than once, implying it is not so rare as I would imagine. Oh but, what a song, what a song.
