Today (16 january 2017) is the 91st birth anniversary of O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). Like C Ramchandra, both his anniversaries fall in the month of January.

It is interesting to realise that the music of these two composers was built around the singing prowess of two singing sisters.

C Ramchandra composed his best music when he tied up with Lata. Lata broke up with him in late 1950s and C Ramchandra was no longer the same music director.

O P Nayyar was one music director who made his mark without utilising the voice of Lata even once. But whose voice did he utilse instead ? Lata’s younger sister’s voice. The reliance of O P Nayyar on Asha Bhonsle’s voice was just as total as C Ramchandra’s was on Lata’s voice.

Asha Bhonsle and O P Nayyar managed to stick together till “Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Jaaye”(1973) and then they parted ways in the most bitter manner possible. Their parting of ways has been discussed by many people and it has been discussed even in this blog while discussing another song from this movie.

“Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye”(1973) had some superb songs rendered by Asha Bhonsle. Four of these songs have already been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye”(1973) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar, of course.

The song is picturised on Rekha, with Premnath and Sunil Dutt also visible in the picturisation.

Prakashchandra, who sent me the lyrics of this song alongwith other information about this song. He shares an interesting information about the picturisation of this song. He informs us that this song was picturised at Empire theatre, Jabalpur. It is a very interesting information indeed. “Empire Talkies”, located near Jabalpur Railway station on Army land was owned by Premnath. This talkies functioned as long as Premnath was alive but it got shut down after the death of Premnath. His sons did not bother to run the talkies. The building, after decades of disrepair collapsed a few years ago. When the sons of Premnath did not respond then the military administration retook possision of the structure,

There is a bus stand near the hall and it is known as empire talkies bus stop. I suppose this name will continue to be used even though the talkies has now collapsed. It is interesting to realise that Rekha, Sunil Dutt and Premnath had shot for the picturisation of this song some 45 years ago !

Here is this superb song from “Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye”(1973)- a movie that has so many stories associated with it.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

What is special today (16 october 2016)? It is the birthday of Hema-Dream Girl- Malini. She is still a dream to look at.

I had been to this show last month here in Bangalore where she was in chat with Kabir Bedi. (I had mentioned this in the post on Dev Anand’s birth anniversary.) It made my hair stand on end (as they say in Hindi- rongte khade ho gaye!)to see my favourite, since I was a child, at such close proximity. I felt like a kid once again. They played a clip from “Seeta aur Geeta”, the one where Manorama goes to the police station with Satyen Kappu to coax a very naughty Geeta to go home with them. The scene with the dialogue-“neeche aa beti.” To which Geeta replies: “oopar aa moti”. My mother used to tell me that as a child I had caught this dialogue and kept repeating it from the time we stepped out of the theatre after seeing the movie.

Clearly the adage “once bitten, twice shy” doesn’t apply to Atulites.

At least not to Batulites (Bengaluru-based Atulites).

Otherwise there’s no reason they’d ask me to post a write-up on the blog, describing the recent gangout event. The last time I wrote a post on a Bengaluru gangout, it was more than six months after the event! By then, I’d forgotten some details – and possibly many had lost interest. 🙂

The Voice of Mukesh #70
– – – – – – – – – – – – –

This voice has such an alluring appeal. No matter what the song may be, Mukesh ji’s voice has the quality to enliven the song with the depth of his soulful emotion. The words come alive with his rendition. Listen to any of his songs, whether they have been popularized on account of association with successful films and actors, or they belong to obscure, unheard and unsuccessful films. His songs from many such films have remained obscure and unheard. For songs of Mukesh, the unexplored era is primarily in the 1970s.  There still are many songs sung by him, that have to find their place on this blog. Many of them are unfamiliar and obscure, and some are familiar but unheard for long.

There has been a long gap after the first post appeared in this series. My original thought was that I would be able to share posts in this series at the rate of one post per month. However I could not do sent any other post after the first one, which was sent on the occasion of the birth anniversary of the ‘First Superstar of Indian Cinema’.

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 38 # Composer – R.D.Burman #
—————————————————-

While compiling the list of mp3s of songs composed by R.D.Burman, I came across this song from ‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’. This song reminded me that I had watched this film at a ‘touring talkies’ years back (may be in 1974-75).

The last post by me in the blog was on 28th february 2016. Nine days have passed since then and I have not posted a single post in the blog during this period !

Some unavoidable reasons kept me away from the blog for this long. Despite my absence, the blog stayed active thanks to posts made by Sudhir Ji. I am extremely thankful to him to keep the musical bandwagon going single handedly for these nine days.
