Mukesh and his Composers -21
————————————————

Did Mukesh act in ‘Uss Paar’ (1944)?

The correct and factual answer along with credible proof to the above question is of historical importance as it refers to the first ever payback rendered by Mukesh.

If Mukesh has not acted in the film, then apparently it will be his first playback.

If he has acted in some capacity, then there are again two possibilities.

  1. He was a side actor and the duet with Kusum was featured on him only.
  2. He had a role in the film, but said duet was picturized on someone else.

One song from ‘Uss Paar’ (1944) has been covered on the blog and it is in fact, the elephant in the room.

Sudhir ji in his extraordinary series ‘The voice of Mukesh’ has covered this duet with Kusum Mantri and has considered it to be the first playback of Mukesh.

All indications are that Mukesh did not act in the movie, but undeniable proof is yet to surface.

Coming to the next post in this series, we take up the career of Mukesh with composer-singer Bulo C Rani today.

Yes, I agree that Bulo C Rani had nothing to do with ‘Uss Paar’ (1944) as it was composed by Feroz Nizami.

But then while searching for some information on Bulo C. Rani, I happened to refer to the book Hindi Film Song by Ashok Da. Ranade. In his description of the works of Bulo C. Rani, Ashok ji in his book on p. 226 says about the film ‘Moorti’ (1945).

In it “badariya baras gai” – which was Mukesh’s first song as the composer often claimed with pride – won popularity.

There we go again. Was Bulo C Rani implying ‘Uss Paar’ duet of Mukesh was not his first playback. Since Bulo C. Rani was very much part of HFM during 1944 -1945, he must have known about Mukesh’s actor-singer songs to take the credit of composing the first song (playback) of Mukesh.

Matters get more complicated with Mukesh with many firsts such as first song, first playback, first popular song etc. And before all these we have his six NFS which he recorded in 1939 at Delhi before coming to Bombay.

When the question referred in the very first line of this post is addressed satisfactorily with proof, I intend to write a separate post on the many firsts of Mukesh with a detailed table.

Coming to the discussions on today’s collaboration, I am happy to bring forth the many memorable and sweet songs that Mukesh sang under the baton of Bulo C Rani.

Before I go into the details of the songs, here is a brief and bullet point summary on the life of Bulo C Rani much of it from the book referred above.

  • He was born on 6 May 1920 in Hyderabad Sindh and his originally name was Bulo Chandiramani Ramchandani.
  • He came to Bombay in 1942 with DN Madhok and joined Ranjit Films to assist Kemchand Prakash.
  • In his initial part of film career, he sang a few songs under different composers.
  • He is credited for composing for the first Sindhi film Abana (1958)

Apart from the above, I request interested readers to apprise themselves of the life and career of the composer with the following three links in which the respective authors have done enough and valuable research.

 

S.No Name of song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 Badariya baras gayi uss paar Moorti (1945) Khursheed and Hamida Bano Pt Indra Chandra
2 Haseeno se haseeno ko Moorti (1945) Pt Indra Chandra
3 Maana ke tum haseen ho Moorti (1945) Pt Indra Chandra
4 Pardesi dhola Prabhu Ka Ghar (1945) Mohantara Pt Indra Chandra
5 Jaa parwaane jaa Rajputaani (1946) Hamida Bano Pt Indra Chandra
6 Kiye jaa pyaar Rajputaani (1946) Pt Indra Chandra
7 Kaise bataaun unse Anjuman (1948) Shamshad Begam Majrooh Sultanpuri
8 Woh teer kaleje par Anjuman (1948) Majrooh Sultanpuri
9 Unki gali mein aaye hum Nazaare (1949) Rajinder Krishan
10 Armaan bhara dil toot gaya Wafa (1950) Lata Hasrat Jaipuri
11 Aansoo bhaavo tum udhar Pyaar Ki Baaten (1951) Geeta Roy Majrooh Sultanpuri
12 Mast chaandni jhoom rahi Pyaar Ki Baaten (1951) Geeta Roy M L Khanna
13 Ae Momino Suno Ye Kahani Abdullah (1960) Shewan Rizvi
14 Ham bhi kho gaye hain Madam Zorro (1962) Kamal Barot Shewan Rizvi
15 Main hoon deewaanaa Haqdaar (1964) Prem Warbartani

The above table provides the complete table of songs composed by Bulo C Rani and sung by Mukesh. It appears, Mukesh was the favorite singer of the composer especially in the late forties and early fifties. Why the composer used Mukesh sparingly in the sixties is not clearly known.

Some beautiful ghazals and delightful duets were the hallmark of the combo. The melodious songs are well known to avid music lovers and I am avoiding describing them again.

As usual, Shri Harish ji has confirmed, correctness of the above table and added useful information that Mukesh sang for the composer, two more duets with Asha Hargunani for a Sindhi film Naqli Shaan (1972) with lyrics by Krishna Rahi.

  1. Ankh Phadke Dil Dhadke
  2. Haseen Raat Aa Mast Aa Fizaa

Out of the 15 songs enlisted above only one from the film ‘Abdullah’ (1960) remains to be covered on the blog and is presented in this post.

 

Song – Ae Momino Suno Ye Kahaani Namaaz Ki  (Abdullah) (1960) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Shewan Rizwi, MD – Bulo C Rani

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki
hai hum pe farz bandagi banda nawaaz ki
ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki

mulk e arab me ek haseena thi nek naam
karti thi apne rabb ki ibadadat wo subh o sham
usko namaaz padne ka bachpan se shauk tha
ik waqt ki namaaz bhi karti na thi kaza
nanha sa ek laal tha us paak baaz ka
gurbat me shukr karti thi wo beniyaaz ka
masoom bachcha bhookh se rota jo beqarar
pani pila pila ke thapakti thi bar bar
guzre isi tarah jo museebat me teen saal
shauhar ke dil me uspe safar ka hua khayal
shauhar ki bat sun ke wo majboor ho gayi
do dil ki ye judaai thi manjur ho gayi

biwi ko rota chhod ke jab ghar se wo chala
masoom bachcha baap se apne lipat gaya
samjha ke maa ne god me bachche ko le liya
wo chup rahi to ashqon ne haafiz khuda kaha
nikla ghareeb ghar se ghareeb ul watan hua
jungle ki tez dhoop me aur bhookh me chala
nagaah ek daku ki us par padi nazar
zalim ne mara zulm se ek teer taak kar
lagte hi teer dil pe wo chakra ke gir pada
waake mein teen waqt the duniya se chal basa
daaku karib aaya use dekhne laga
bhai ko murda dekh ke wo tharthara gaya
roya lipat lipat ke biraadar ki lash se
sar phodta tha apni hi bhai ko mar ke

kehta tha ro ke haaye ye kya maine kar diya
bhai ka khoon apne hi daman me bhar diya
munh peet’ta hua wo sehar ki taraf chala
bhabhi ko apne kehne ko pur dard maajra
ae momino suno ye kahani namaz ki

masroof har namaaz mein wo ek zaat thi
go din ki bhookh mein bhi thi mashgool e bandagi
daaku ne raah zal mein yaa shauhar ke bhai ne
tab aa ke tod daale ummeedon ke aaine
kehne laga suhaag tera maine le liya
apne hi haathon qatl biraadar ko kar diya
daaku gunehgaar ko rehban ko dekh le
khoon se bhara hua mere daaman ko dekh le
ye sun ke cheekhi aur wo behosh ho gayi
duniya se bekhabar wo gaflat mein so gayi
roi tadap ke khwaab mein shauhar ko dekh kar
dil tukde tukde ho gaya dilbar ko dekh kar
nanhe ka baazu thaam liya dil ko thaam kar
kehne lagi ke le chalo shauhar ki laash par
al qissa roti peet’ti pahunchi wo laash par
kadmon pe sar ko rakh diya shauhar ko dekh kar
fariyaad rabb se karne lagi ho ke beqaraar
utri falak beewi koi sun ke ye pukaar
haathon mein ek jaam tha munh par naqaab thi
rehmat baras rahi thi charaafa hijaab ki
wo beewi boli is pe chhidak de ye jaam tu
aur padh ke is se pooch le allah ka naam tu
paani chhidak ke naam e khuda us pe dam diya
kudrat khuda ki dekhiye wo murda jee utha. . .

ye dekh kar lipat gayi shauhar se wo ghareeb
kehne lagi ke mil gaya mujh ko mera habeeb
daaman pakad ke beewi ka phir poochhne lagi
tum kaun ho khudaara bata do ye raaz bhi
wo beewi boli main hi khuda ki namaaz hoon
maalik ki bandgi hoon barkat ka raaz hoon
apne namaazion ki main bigdi banaati hoon
apne namaazion pe main rehmat lutaati hoon
gaayab hua ye keh ke farishta namaaz ka
padh kar namaaz dekho karishma namaaz ka

padh kar namaaz dekho karishma namaaz ka. . .

Blog Day :

4751 Post No. : 16489

Eid ul Azha mubarak ho, to all friends and readers.

It is generally believed that faith and logic are two different things.  What is faith?  Basic premise of faith would be the belief in God.  The conviction that there is a Supreme Power who holds the strings of all things in the universe.  After all the world is a stage and we all are actors.  Shakespeare said it, but it is nothing but the truth.  All of us are here for a set number of days, playing our designated roles, doing things we are destined to do, amassing good deeds and bad deeds.  As we complete the life circle and leave this mortal world, the soul does go somewhere, where else it will go but to the creator?  Logic has no option but to agree that the creator is in best position to answer the question, what is the purpose of creation?  If there was no creator, nothing makes sense in the whole existence. Science can give answers till a certain point and that is that. Logic starts where science gives up.   And sound logic points to God, the Creator, the Sustainer, the one who says “be” and it is.

I quote here some of the verses from the Glorious Quran.

“O Mankind, indeed we have created you male and female, and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you, in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, ALLAH is (all) knowing and (well) acquainted.” –  49:13

“And (O Muhommad) say: My Lord forgive and have mercy, for you are the best of all who show mercy.” –  23:118

“O mankind, there has come to you, a convincing proof (Prophet Muhammad) from your Lord and we send down to you a manifest light (this Quran).” – 4:174

“And whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] himself.” – 27:92

“And for those who fear Allah, He will make their path easy.” – 65:4

“Allah never changes the condition of people until they change what is in themselves.” – 13:11

“And put thy trust in Allah. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.” – 33:3

“Take care of your souls.” – 5:105

“Do not ridicule others, perhaps they may be better than you.” – 49:11

“If you are thankful, I will increase my blessings upon you.” – 14:7

“So remember me, I will remember you.” – 2:152

“He knows what is in every heart.” – 67:13

“Verily, with every hardship comes ease.” –  94:5

“Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear.” – 2:286

“Do not lose hope, nor be sad, for you will overcome them, if you are among the believers.” – 3:139

“We will test you in fear, hunger, loss of wealth life & fruit, but give glad tiding to the patient (steadfast).” – 2:155

“Call upon me, I will respond to you.” – 40:60

“Indeed, Allah is with those who abide him and those who are doers of good.” -16:128

“Allah will provide for him from a quarter from where he had no expectation. And whosoever puts all his trust in Allah, He will be enough for him. Allah is in command and he has set a measure for all things.” –  65:3

“And worship your Lord until there comes into you the certainty/inevitable (death)” – 15:99

“You prefer the life of this world. Although the hereafter is better & more lasting.” 87:16-17

“And we have certainly beautified the nearest heaven with stars.” – 67:5

“The Pharoah’s wife said (Pray) My lord, build for me near you a house in paradise.” –  66:11

These ‘Aayaat’ are part of different Surah (Chapters) in the Quran, revealed at different times to the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) (570-632 CE), during his Prophethood years (610-632 CE).  Mohammed (PBUH) was unlettered with no formal education, and had rarely traveled outside of Makkah, before his migration (Hijraah) to Madinah.   All ‘Aayaat’ of the Holy Quran were revealed to him, via the Angel Jibraeel (AS) at different times and in context of different situations. They were delivered as signs and guidance. These ‘Aayaat’ were then related by the Prophet (PBUH) to his companions (Sahaba), who recorded them in writing.  All of these ‘Aayaat’ were recorded in the Prophet’s life time. It was collated/arranged in a meticulous way, in the form of different Surah’s of the Quran during the reign of Hazrat Abu-Bakr (RA) (573-634 CE), the first Khalifa, in the present compilation. Hazrat Umar (RA) had a great contribution in this process.  There is great detail available about how the procedure was done, with verification of at least 2 witnesses that the Aayat is indeed written down in the presence of the Prophet.  Different Surah’s are also classified as ‘Makkih’ and ‘Madnih’, those revealed before migration to Madinah and after.

How simple and easy, is the faith and the true path, can be discerned in these quotes. How wise is the counsel, for all situations? It answers some of the basic questions bothering the mankind, with intellectuals, philosophers, thinkers having scratched their heads for all these millennia.  I have tried to collate them in an order, so it is in the order of creation, faith, trust, thankfulness, the true way of living, easy way of functioning as a creation, hope, the hereafter, the quest for heaven, how it is near and then the last one speaks of the wife of one (Pharoah-who denied the existence of Allah and declared himself as God) can ask (pray) for the highest level in Jannah (Paradise). It means, its available for everyone, one only has to seek it and ask for it, whatever and whoever you are.  This may not be the best way of saying it, and if I have erred, may Allah (SWT) forgive me.

A brief definition of Jannah with a prayer:

Jannah, where there will be no sickness, no pain, no difficulty, no separation, no loss.

Jannah, its beauty such that no mind could even ever comprehend.

Jannah, where those you love are waiting for you.

Jannah, where your Allah is waiting for you.

Jannah, which is never ever going to end.

Remind yourself that this is the decree of Allah and in his decisions is hidden kindness. Remind yourself that it is not just going to be okay, but it is going to be worth it.

Dear heart, please just remind yourself that your Allah is with you. Please don’t ever forget that.

Your Allah is with you. Your Allah will never leave you.

He knows of your condition. He is aware of your struggle.

And not a single moment of this going by unrewarded.

Allah knows that you are scared, and it is okay to be scared.

Keep trusting your Allah. Don’t lose hope in His mercy.  He is right here with you.

Feel it and treasure it.

———————————————————————————————————

On a different note, this is what Allama Iqbal has to say:

Sajdon ke ee’waz firdaus mile ye baat mujhe manzoor nahi
Be-laus i’baadat karta hoon banda hoon tera mazdoor nahi

 Ee’waz or I’waz means in return of, and ‘Firdaus’ is Jannat/heaven/paradise in persian.

What Iqbal means is :

I am not doing salutations / ibaadat (supplication) and itaa’at (obedience / submission to the will of Almighty), so that you grant me heaven in return. My prayers are pure, as I am your slave and not a paid servant.

This is, but the highest point of devotion, that the pious seek.

One of those pious, righteous, seekers of the divine favour, was Umar Farooq (RA) (584-644 CE). Umar bin Khattab was the second Khalifa of the Khulfa-e-Rashideen. The status of Umar Farooq, as a Sahaba, companions of the Prophet (PBUH), as among the beloved and respected Khalifa, can be ascertained from the fact of his being one of the “Ashra Mubashra”.  “Ashra Mubashra” are the 10 exalted ones among the Sahaba, who were given the ‘Good News’ or ‘Glad Tidings’.  What would be the ‘Good News’ who have the clear idea of the purpose of creation, life and death?  It is the achievement of securing a place in ‘Jannah’.  So, by divine declaration, those 10 were given the Good News, that a place is secured in Jannah for them. The magnificent ten include all four Khulfa-e-Rashideen.  Umar Farooq (RA)’s significance as a Khalifa and his role in the spread of Islamic empire much beyond the Arabian Peninsula is indisputable and incomparable.  One more significant and important contribution of Umar Farooq (RA), is the introduction of Islamic calendar i.e. the Hijri calendar.  There is a great deal to learn from his story, for he was one of the major detractors of the Prophet for a long time.  But once he accepted that Mohammed is indeed the Messenger of Allah, and came into the fold of Islam, blessed by the Allah (SWT) and rose to great heights that he did.

 I have read up a lot in recent days, so that I could give some accurate and concise information in this post.  But if I go on, this post will never finish.

So, I will move to the song, which is a non-film song sung by Mukesh. The song is composed by Iqbal and lyricist is Shadaab Minai.  Shadaab Minai is probably making a debut here with this song.  The song is talking in detail of an incident i.e. a qissa during the reign of Umar Farooq (RA), the second Khalifa.

Tally of music director, lyricist and singer in the blog so far as follows:

 

Iqbal

23

Shaadaab

2

Mukesh

797

932

Unless the Shadaab in the stats page is the same as Shadaab Minai, otherwise this is the first song written by Shadaab Minai in the blog.

This is a rare song, which I think few people may have heard before.  I was not aware it until a few months ago, when it was shared by someone on WhatsApp.

 

Song – Hai Bahut Mashoor Ye Qissa Umar Farooq Ka (Mukesh – NFS) (1970), Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Shadaab Minai, MD – Iqbal

Lyrics

hai bahot mash-hoor ye qissa
Umar Farooq ka
aaj bhi duniyaa mein hai
charcha Umar Farooq ka

jab khilaafat ka sharf
haasil hua Farooq ko
momino ki fikr rehti thhi sadaa Farooq ko
kaam aate thhe har ek
majboor ke Hazrat Umar
shauq se karte thhe khud
har ek ki khidmat Umar

phirte phirte ek din
pahunche Umar ek ghar ke paas
dekhte kya hain
wahan baithhi hai ek aurat udaas
degchi chulhe pe thhi aur
ro rahe thhe us ke laal
jab kiya Hazrat Umar ne ja ke
aurat se sawaal
ro rahe hain kis liye bachche
yeh kya hai maajra
bhook se rote hain ye bachche
ye aurat ne kaha
bole Hazrat degchi mein
pak raha hai kya kaho
kis liye ghamgheen ho
jo kuchh bhi hai dukhda kaho

boli wo aurat ke paani se bhari hai degchi
kyun ke main bachchon ko behlaati hoon
is soorat se hi
uff taraste hain ye bachhche daane daane ke liye
kuchh nahi hai mere paas in ko khilaane ke liye
teesre din ka hai faqaa
mere bachchon par huzoor
mera koyi bhi yahaan wali nahin
nazdeek-o-dur
roye uss ko dekh kar iss haal mein
Hazrat Umar
aa gaye fauran hi bait-ul-maal mein Hazrat Umar
aata kapda ghee chhuaare aur raqam le kar Umar
ghamzada aurat ke ghar ki simt daude jaldtar
peetth par dekha Umar ke bojh to bola ghulaam
bojh uttha kar mujh ko chalne deejiye aye nek naam
ye Umar bole agar ye bojh main de doon tujhe ea
hashr ke din kya sazaa dega na jaane rab mujhe
de diya dukhiya ko sab saamaan la kar aap ne
aur khilaaya sab ko khaana pakaa kar aap ne

khaa liya bachchon ne aurat ne khaana jis ghadi
ho gaye Hazrat Umar khush dekh kar un ki khushi
aap ko de kar duaaen phir ye aurat ne kaha
kaash mil jaata koyi ham ko khalifa aap sa
ham gariboon ki Umar koyi khabar rakhte nahin
a’iysh mein hain mast dukhiyon par nazar rakhte nahin
le ke dukhiya ki baaton ka asar Hazrat Umar
khaamoshi se laut aaye apne ghar Hazrat Umar

subah us aurat ko Faarooq ne bulwa liya
aur wazifa us ka bait-ul-maal se jaari kiyaa
ho ke sharminda phir Umar ne aurat se kaha
dukh bahot pahunchaa hai tum ko
meri ghaflat se sada
tum mujhe kar do mu’aaf
itni hai meri iltejaa aa
tum jo mujh ko bakhsh do
bakhsh de mujh ko khudaa aa

saari duniyaa mein hai charcha
har kahin Farooq ka
koyi bhi insaaf mein
saani nahi Farooq ka
koyi bhi insaaf mein
saani nahi Farooq ka

Hullo Atuldom

I have been wanting to send this song for almost a week or ten days now. I had first thought of 12th July which was the death anniversary of Jubilee Kumar a.k.a Rajendra Kumar. But, I was unable to, due to various reasons.

Then, yesterday, 20th July the birth anniversary of Rajendra Kumar- missed that too. Why? I was too busy attending (online) birthday parties. And reading all the blog-birthday posts. That simple.

But today is another opportunity to present this song to the blog-followers. Anand Bakshi – the lyricist- has his birth anniversary today. Would have been 91.

The song from the 1972 release “Gora Aur Kala” is composed by Laxmi-Pyare and sung by Mohd Rafi. The movie had a cast of Rajendra Kumar, Prem Chopra, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, Sundar, Premnah, Rajan Haksar, and two very young beauties (my personal favourites) Hema Malini and Rekha with Sulochana playing the mother of the two Rajendra Kumars (yes he played a double role in the movie). This song is sung by the Karan Singh (the better looking and well-mannered twin) in a disguise in the court. I haven’t seen the movie but I am sure that it is an attempt to fool Madan Puri who is on the throne (I think he plays Hema’s father), along with Prem Chopra and others in the court. The power of the song is seen in the fact that the Princess Anuradha (Hema) starts dancing to the song.

On reviewing what I have written in the beginning of this post, a thought crossed my mind. If Atulji had given us such excuses this blog would not have completed 13 years – 4,749 days – 16,484 posts. (as on 19th July). A statement (in Sudhirji’s post of the 19th) “Do you know that the average daily rate of posting is upwards of three posts per day. Try doing that seven days a week, 365 days a year, and continuously at that rate for 13 years. Try writing a letter each to three friends every day, day on day, for 13 years. My, does that no yet boggle the mind.” also set me thinking.

Hatsoff to Atulji for relentlessly giving us more than one song-a-day.

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 146 # A tribute to Anand Bakshi- Song from ‘Goraa Aur Kaalaa-1972
———————————————–—————————–—

Today 21st July’2021 is the ninety-first (21.07.1930 – 30.03.2002) birth anniversary of Poet-Lyricist Anand Bakshi.
On this occasion, as a tribute to him, here is a song written by him for the movie ‘Goraa Aur Kaalaa’.

“Goraa Aur Kaalaa-1972” was directed by Naresh Kumar for ‘Shankar Movies, Bombay’. It was produced by Rajkumar Kohli.

It had Rajendra Kumar, Hema Malini, Rekha (Special role), Prem Chopra, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, Sulochana, Premnath, Sanjana, Sundar, Randhir, Hiralal, Bashir, Rajan Haksar, Ram Mohan, Kamal Deep, Tilak Raj, Prannath, Gulab Singh, Abdul Ghani, Ajiz Shaikh, Rashid Khan, Pandit Rammurti, Shobha, Sawan Kumar and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board 12.12.1972.

‘Goraa Aur Kaalaa-1972’ had six songs, all written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and Mukesh had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs from this movie.

SNo Song Title Posted on the blog

We can see from the above table that only two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog, and both were posted in the year 2009. Today’s song – the third song- from this movie will be appearing after a gap of more than twelve years.

The two songs posted in the blog are well known songs from this movie and I am aware of them. Another well known song, viz ‘dhoom mach gayi dhoom saathi’, too is known to be.

But the other three songs from this movie are unfamiliar to me. Even the movie is unfamiliar to me.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs of this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and on screen it is performed by Rekha and Hema Malini. This is a seductive song where Rekha is trying to seduce Rajendra Kumar (the ‘kaalaa’ Rajendra Kumar). Rajendra Kumar is shown drinking and thinking of Hema Malini instead and not Rekha 😊

Let us now enjoy this song …

Today’s song is from the film Maharani Minal Devi-1946. This film was made by Lakshmi Productions, Bombay, owned by the Director Chimanlal Trivedi. This film was made on a remarkable historical personality from Gujarat.

Bombay film industry has made more than 12000 films so far, on various Genres, but it’s score on making films on Historical Indian personalities is very pathetic. While films on Mughal Kings, Queens and other personalities were made in all decades since the films started talking, not much focus was given on Indian historyHero and Heroines. Not that no films were made at all on them, but if you see its number, there can not be a justification for the large gap.

In the history of India, there were hundreds of such worthy sons and daughters who fought for the country, brought social reforms, did extraordinary work for the people and generally did things for which the country remembers them proudly. Actually,in every state of India, there are Heroes and Heroines who did a lot of good work for the people, in the past few hundred years. Sadly, Hindi films are very poor on this count.

However, I find that regional cinemas are way ahead of Hindi cinema in this matter. Particularly I would quote Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Bangla films in the first list. The second list is of Marathi and Oriya films. Mind you, I am not talking about films on religious personalities and saints like Kabir, Tulsida etc. Even in this category, very few are the subject matter of Hindi films.

People like Rana Pratap, Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar, Rabindranath Tagore, Dhondo Keshav Karve, Rani Chennamma etc etc deserved Hindi films. The entire focus was on Mughals and those who came from outside.The regional films at least did some justice by making films on their Heroes/heroines. Tamil and Bangla films are leaders in this. The strong Regional Pride was the causal factor essentially but honouring heroes is a matter of appreciation. Films on Babar, Humayun, Shahjehan, Bahadurshah Zafar and the likes of them are made in plenty, for obvious reasons, but how many films were made on Savarkar, Shivaji, Rana Pratap, Ashoka the great, Jhansi ki Rani etc ? Leave the older ones. Are there films on Indira Gandhi, Nehru, Gandhi ? A British person had to come here to make a film on Gandhi !

During the British rule – till 1947 – it was probably not possible, allowed or was risky, but since 1947 till date what was the problem ? I feel sad at this state of affairs in making films. Luckily, in the last few years, some enterprising filmmakers have dared to make films on Indian Heroes. I do hope that the situation will improve further and films on Indian heroes/Heroines (there are plenty of them) will be made.

Film maharani Minal devi-1946 is a film on a brave, intelligent, kind and Patriotic personality from Gujarat. I could not get any information on her, the story of the film or other details. Fortunately, I could find a site http://www.streeshakti.com, wherein I found a note on her. here it is to get an idea who she was and what she did….

“Minal Devi or Mayanalla, a famous queen of eleventh century Gujarat, is remembered as an able and just administrator. She was the daughter of Jayakeshin, a king of the Kadamba dynasty in Karnataka and was married to Karna I, a Chalukya king of Anahillapatanawada who met an early death, leaving his queen and young son Siddharaja Jayasimha. Minal Devi acted as regent for her son, who went on to become a legendary hero. An incident described in Rajashekhar Suri’s Prabandha Kosha testifies to the fact that she inspired him in many of his warlike exploits.
She also managed affairs of state, built several monuments and lakes and was responsible for the remission of the tax on pilgrims visiting the Somnath temple. Two lakes built in her period were Minalasar or Munsar near Viramgam and Malva at Dhavalakka or Dholka in Ahmedabad. According to legend, there was a house owned by a woman at the proposed site of the lake Malva, which needed to be demolished to give the lake a regular shape. The queen offered a big sum of money to the woman for her house, but she refused, saying, ‘I shall be famous with your lake,’ thus threatening to sacrifice her life if her house was touched. The queen did not coerce her, showing herself to be a just ruler. This event led to the Gujarati saying: ‘If you want to see justice, go to Dholka and have a look at Malva lake.’

Minal Devi is mentioned with high esteem in contemporary literature. A Sanskrit play entitled Mudritakumudachandra-prakarana depicts a learned dispute between the Digambaras and Svetambaras, the two major Jain sects. One topic in this dispute is whether a woman can achieve salvation. The Svetambaras here claim that women possessing sattwa (identity: an inner quality of goodness) could attain salvation and cite Sita from mythology and Minal Devi in the court of Siddharaja Jayasimha as examples.”

The film had 7 songs written by two lyricists, composed by Saraswati Devi-the music Director. The film was directed by Chimanlal Trivedi. The cast of the film was Prem Adeeb, Leela desai, Durga Khote, Jagdish bSethi, Agha, Sankatha prasad and many others. Director Chimanlal trivedi was a remarkable enterprising person.

Chimanlal Trivedi, was one of the major filmmakers of the 30s and the 40s decade. He was more a Producer businessman than a Director. While he directed hardly 7 films, he produced close to 50 films- all having A grade actors, directors and composers !

Born on 19-3-1909 at a village near Anand in Gujarat he was from a Brahmin family. He did his schooling in Ahmedabad and technical graduation from Baroda. Being an expert in weaving, he took up a job as a weaving Master in Calcutta. Fond of writing, he started writing Dramas, which were staged in Bengal and Gujarat. He was attracted towards Cinema and tried some work in New Theatres. Knowing that the real playing field is Bombay he reached there. He wrote stories for the film Chevrolet-36 and Danger Signal-37 for Mohan pictures.

He established his own production company CIRCO (Cine Industries Recording COmpany) in 1937. By 1943, he had made 12 films. He preferred not to direct his films, but appointed directors like Mohan Sinha for Laxmi-40, Anuradha-40 and Vanmala-41, Balwant Bhatt for Suhag-40 and Madhusudan-41, A R Kardar for Swami-41 and Nai Duniya-42 and Debki Bose for Apna Ghar-42.

He had the art of getting the most popular stars for his films like, Prithviraj kapoor, Chandramohan, Durga Khote,Mazhar khan, Bibbo,Surendra, Jairaj, Sitara, Jeevan, Yaqub, Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Vishnupant Pagnis,Leela Desai, Pahadi Sanyal, Shanta Apte and many others. Even big directors like Debki Bose,Nitin Bose, Kardar,Mohan Sinha, Sarvottam Badami, Nandlal Jaswantlal,Profull Roy, Sudhir Sen, R S Chaudhary, Phani mujumdar, Balwant Bhatt etc. worked for him. From Prabhat he brought Shanta Apte for Rs.1000 pm, and also Chandramohan, Pagnis and Mazhar khan. His friend Chandulal Shah followed his way and brought K L Saigal from New Theatres !

C L Trivedi was an expert in gathering funds for his films. After CIRCO at Parel, he started Laxmi Productions at Andheri, in 1942. He made mera Gaon,Sharafat,Bhagya Laxmi,Kadambari,Tamanna,Inkaar,Mohabbat,Miss Devi etc. In 1951, it was Supreme Pictures, Trivedi Productions was in 1952, Kala Kendra in 1953 and with Chitra Bharati in 1954, he made 13 films upto 1961. Top Composers like Timir Baran,Ashok Ghosh,Rafiq Gaznavi,K C Dey,Saraswati Devi,Husnlal-Bhagatram and Naushad gave music to his films.

In the end, he turned to Stage and started Abhinay Bharati. He staged many dramas in Bombay and Gujarat. Chimanlal always went for big names. He had close relations with Nehru, Menon, Morarji Desai, and other National leaders. His wife Kantaben was a Leader herself. Chimanlal Trivedi died on 25-11-1973. His wife, 3 sons and a daughter settled in the USA.

It may be a coincidence, but Gujarati businessmen like Chimanlal Trivedi, Chimanlal Desai,Chimanlal Luhar, Chaturbhuj Doshi, Chimankant Desai, Chunibhai Desai and Chandulal Shah made sizable contribution to Hindi cinema in the first 20 years of the Talkie era. All names started with CH ( ? ) !

Today’s song is sung by Rajkumari dubey. With this song the film makes its Debut on this Blog.

The tale of two brothers – Hafiz Khan and Aziz Khan, sons of the Ustad Waheed Khan of Etawaha Gharana is not only saddening but also contrasting in the end. After a promising start in Hindi films as a playback singer and the music director in the 1940s, Hafiz Khan died in 1972 in extreme poverty. Aziz Khan, on the other hand, after a brief stint with Hindi film industry as a music director, reverted to playing Sitar and trained his son, Ustad Parvez Khan who is now an internationally well-known Sitar player.

Etawaha Gharana popularised the Sitar and Surbahar and Ustad Waheed Khan was a famous exponent of both these musical instruments. He appeared in Satyajit Ray’s ‘Jalsaagar (1958) in which he can be seen playing Raag Bihaag on Surbahar in one of the scenes of the film. Ustad Waheed Khan was a court musician at the court of Holkar of Indore for 18 years, in the court of Maharaja of Patiala for 3 years and later in the court of Nizam of Hyderabad until 1948. Naturally, he wanted his two sons to continue the Gharana tradition of playing Sitar and Surbahar. With this aim in mind, Ustad Waheed Khan gave extensive training in Sitar, Surbahar and vocal music to his two sons. At the age of around 12 , Hafiz Khan was sent to Kolkata to receive further training in Sitar and Surbahar from his uncle, Ustad Inayat Khan (father of sitar maestro Ustad Vilayat Khan) who found Hafiz Khan to be a promising student of Sitar and Surbahar. He used to accompany his uncle in his sitar/surbahar concerts.

In Kolkata, Hafiz Khan got mesmerised with the songs of K L Saigal and Pankaj Mullick. He was now more interested in becoming a singer in Hindi films than learning Sitar and Surbahar. On a visit to Hyderabad to spend some time with his father who had then become a court musician in the court of Nizam, Hafiz Khan got a chance to sing songs on Hyderabad Radio. Knowing fully well of his father’s strong aversion to film songs, he had to sing on the radio without revealing his name. He got some money for his singing on the radio.

Knowing that his father would never allow him to sing for Hindi films, one day Hafiz Khan ran away from Hyderabad with his money earned from radio singing to Mumbai some time in 1934. After doing some odd jobs in the film studio including small roles as actor, producer Chandrarao Kadam, who was producing ‘Bahadur Kisaan’(1938) for which Mir Sahab was entrusted with the music direction, gave him a chance to sing a solo song ‘baalam gaye pardes ri sajni’ which became his debut playback song in a film. With this song, Hafiz Khan became known as a singer. Since he wanted to hide his name associated with film songs from his father, Mir Sahab gave him a new name ‘Khan Mastana’ keeping in view his jolly nature.

After the release of ‘Bahadur Kissan’ (1938), Mir Sahab joined Minerva Movietone as the music director. He also took Khan Mastana to Minerva Movietone where he was taken as a playback singer on a 3-year contract. During this period, he sang songs in ‘Jailor’ (1938), ‘Talaaq’ (1938), ‘Pukaar’ (1939) ‘Main Haari’ (1940), etc. His songs from these films raised his popularity graph. During the last year of the contract with Minerva Movietone, Sohrab Modi wanted him to play sitar in addition to his contract as playback singer. Khan Mastana refused to play sitar as he did not wish to become a musician. He left Minerva Movietone. By that time, he had also got an offer from a film producer to work as a music director (probably for ‘Virginia’, 1940). Since Sohrab Modi did not want to lose Khan Mastana, he gave him a chance as a music director in his film ‘Vasiyat’ (1940) which he accepted as a free-lancer.

In around 1945, Khan Mastana’s younger brother, Aziz Khan had also joined Bombay film industry as a music director. To conceal his identity for his association with films, he had also changed his name to ‘Aziz Hindi’. By 1947, Khan Mastana had become a top male playback singer next only to G M Durrani and had given music direction to as many as 23 films. Everything was going very fine in his filmy career. He had money, fame and the luxury of staying in any one of his 5 flats in Mumbai. But his misfortune started when he paid a visit to Hyderabad sometime in 1947. His father who was a court musician at that time with Nizam, did not allow him to return to Mumbai. Instead, he pressurized Khan Mastana to learn classical music and sing in front of him rather than in the films. This continued for almost a year which led to delay in films for which he was committed to complete the recording of the songs as playback singer and as a music director. The producers of such films had to engage some other music directors to complete their films. Khan Mastana’s unprofessional attitude resulted in losing some prospective films as the music director.

In early 1948, Khan Mastana once again ran away from Hyderabad for Mumbai. One year of the absence from the film industry is sufficient for a film artist to be forgotten. Khan Mastana managed to get some playback singing assignments to re-establish himself in the film industry. One of the songs in which he sang with Mohammed Rafi was ‘watan ki raah pe watan ke naujawaan shahid ho’ from ‘Shaheed’ (1948) which became very popular. When Khan Mastana has just settled down in the film industry mainly as a playback singer in his second innings, his father came to Mumbai and forcibly took him ( also his brother, Aziz Khan) back to Hyderabad. This time, he was trapped in Hyderabad for about 2 years.

When Khan Mastana returned to Mumbai after 2 years – probably in 1951, he had not only faced the wrath of producers and music directors for his unprofessional behaviour, he had to face stiff competition of emerging playback singers like Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and Manna Dey. Some new music directors had also emerged during his absence who were happy with the emerging playback singers. Khan Mastana realised that his days as playback singer and the music director were over. In his third inning in film industry, he could get only a handful of songs to sing. He sang his last song as a playback singer, zindagi hai yaa koi toofaan hai in ‘Zindagi Yaa Toofaan’ (1958) which became his swan song.

From the mid 1950s up to his death in March 1972, Khan Mastana lived a life of extreme poverty. During his heydays, he lavishly spent money on his friends who also made him addicted to some vices including drinking. So, he had not saved money for the future. He was staying with his family in a small room mocated in a lane adjunct to Mahim Dargah. He had got afflicted with paralysis in 1966. His only son got similar affliction at the age of 14.

Khan Mastana who had sung nearly 150 songs, composed music in around 30 films besides acting in around 10 films died unsung in abject poverty in March 1972.

What a sad end of a lineage from the Etawah Gharana. His nephew, Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan (son of his brother, Aziz Khan) who is an accomplished sitar player of international repute is of the view that going by the recordings of his uncle’s Hindustani classical renditions and sitar/surbahar recitals available with the family’s archive, Khan Mastana would have become one of the leading exponents of Hindustani classical music if he had concentrated on playing Sitar/Surbahar and as a classical vocalist rather than in the Hindi film industry.

‘Muqabala’ (1942) was one of the films of Khan Mastana’s heydays for which he was not only the music director, he also sang for himself in the film and also provided playback singing for other actors. This film seems to have been produced at a time when Wadia Movietone was in the verge of a split between Wadia Brothers. The film was made under the banner of J B H Wadia Productions but it was a Homi Wadia presentation. The film was jointly directed by Batuk Bhatt (Nanabhai Bhatt) and Babubhai Mistry. The star cast included Nadia and Yaqub in the lead role supported by Srinivas, Rajni, Dalpat, Nazira, Agha, Jal Khambata, M K Hasan, Baby Madhuri etc.

The film had 9 songs of which 3 songs have been covred in the Blog. All the songs were written by A Karim. I am presenting the film’s 4th song, ‘mujrim hoon mohabbat ka jo chaahe saza dena’ which is picturised on Yaqub. Agha is also seen in the song picturization.

Almost all on-line resources mention Yaqub as the singer. But it is apparent that the voice in the song is that of Khan Mastana.

This article was based on the interview the author had taken with Khan Mastana in his house. Much of the information about Khan Mastana in my article is based on this source with some updates.

So. Finally it is official.

We are teenagers now, the first step into the growing up years. The childhood years left behind and now the coming of age years are starting.

What started off as a ‘let’s-try-it’ hobby run with the simplest of the simple philosophical musings – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li“, has come of age today and has blossomed into a huge tree with thousands of branches spread out, with roots that are deep and strong, and are full of conviction. A tree that provides shade in terms of solace to the lovers of music, which in turn are spread out all over the globe. This is the world tree of music and songs. This is a tree that has a flavor for every palate, a tree that has fruits of everlasting tastes for the connoisseurs, a tree that conserves and perpetuates that enchanting phenomena that is the lovely Hindi Film Music – this is a tree that has many different meanings and many different treasures for the seekers of pleasure in music. There is a whole universe of music that has  settled itself around this tree. Although the desires abounded for flowers, but when none were forthcoming this direction, the protagonist settled for the proverbial thorns to start with. That humble gesture ensured that flowers of all shades and colors, and also, flower bearers of all tastes and wonders, kept on coming together one by one, till a complete orchestra of performers was formed, and the bandwagon got its name.

Thirteen years and counting. And if you talk of counting, here are some counts that will really make you happy with wonder.

Do you know that we have a visitor to this blog, every thirty seconds – the total count (and still counting) is upwards of 14.5 million visitors. Now that is a number to really wonder about.

Do you know that we have been averaging quite, quite close to one new film per day since the inception of this blog. 4749 days today and 4480 films showcased. And oh yes, that is not counting the Non-Film songs categories. Adding them categories, we shall surely be at 1+ new film or new non-film song category per day. Isn’t that a wow that makes one feel like flying.

Do you know that the average daily rate of posting is upwards of three posts per day. Try doing that seven days a week, 365 days a year, and continuously at that rate for 13 years. Try writing a letter each to three friends every day, day on day, for 13 years. My, does that no yet boggle the mind.

And that is where the superlatives start ceasing to have an impact.

13 years – 4,749 days – 16,484 posts. . .

And just ONE person.  Now isn’t that something to boggle the google. Especially when we know it is a labor of love, and that it is not an endeavor for remuneration. Ah yes, it does finally boil down to love. As does of course, everything else in this universe.

That one person, carrying the entire earth on his shoulders, like the legendary Atlas. Not pausing for even a day to rest. Of course yes, there have been rarities that we have had dot days. But in the final count, the averages will speak for themselves. No matter how many runs and how many centuries – double, triple – any other batsman has scored, the Don Bradman remains the Don Bradman when the averages are calculated.

Atul ji, over the years that we have been associated for this endeavor, we have completely used up all the possible epithets and adjectives to address our appreciation of your work. And now, we are at a loss to articulate this emotion any further. And will finally end up saying these lines that I borrow from another legend – ABBA,

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance, what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

And not just to me – to this entire world, a compilation that is sans any peers. Who would have thought it could have been possible. Your own words have been that your earliest flights of imagination brought you to a number of maybe 2,500. And that then you would rest.

Aah, but for the passion this ignited, within yourself, and within this motley crew of the musical bandwagon. The counter is ticking oh so close to 16,500 posts. And not a day’s breather seems to be in view. Mightier and stronger and higher we ride the Olympian altitudes. And the bandwagon keeps chugging along, day on day, week on week, month on. . .

I just thought of taking a look at the date of 19th July across our travels. We have had a total of 68 posts that have been celebrating this anniversary, after the intial 19th July post of 2008. Seven posts in 2009, 4 posts in 2010, 5 posts in 2011, 6 posts in 2012, 5 posts again in 2013, then on to 7 posts once again in 2014, 5 posts in 2015, and wow, a whopping 8 posts in 2016, back to 4 posts in 2017, aah – 3 posts in 2018, 4 posts in 2019, back up to 6 posts in 2020, and then today, 4 posts again to celebrate this wondrous milestone. With songs posted across the entire spectrum of decades, from 1936 all the way up to 2002, the celebrations of this anniversary have been multifarious and varied.

Ah but let me not bore you with any more statistics and analyses. And bring you to this song for the celebration today.

Geeton Ka Sansaar Yahaan Par

Took me a while to locate this wonderfully complementary theme song for this celebration. And for its rarity, it is – sorry, it was not yet available online. The film is ‘Nai Reet’ from 1948. The film itself makes a debut on our blog today.

The film has been produced under the banner of India Film Corporation, Bombay and is directed by Shubh Karan Ojha. This relatively obscure film that probably did not garner much attention and box office receipts when it was released in 1948, has the cast listed as Sulochana Chatterjee, Geeta Bali, Rajendra, Krishankant, Tiwari, Badri Prasad, Tara Bai, Leela Mishra, and Ramesh Sinha. Most names are familiar, and I am sure the full cast would be carrying more names.

The film has 8 songs in total. All the songs are written by a team of two songwriters in collaboration – Bal Krishan Gupta and Ratan Kumar Gupta. The footnote that is carried in the Geet Kosh, succinctly states that – “As per the information recieved from Lyricist Bal Krishna Gupta all songs this film were written by both Lyricists working together, i.e. `Kumar-Gupta` (Ratan `Kumar` Gupta + Bal Krishna `Gupta`. However the records carry the name as `Kumar Gupta`.” So by this input, we would also use the lyricist’s name as Kumar-Gupta.

The music is by SK Pal, and the singing voice is that of Meena Kapoor.

And the words – they oh so well sum up the emotions of this celebration today – that here is a universe of songs that has been put together for us.

गीतों का संसार यहाँ पर
मुसकानों का मेला है
पत्ती पत्ती झूम रही
हर फूल में जादू फैला है

A world of songs is here
It is a festival celebration of smiles
Every leaf is swaying with delight
There is a joyous magic spread through every flower

मैं भी अपनी झोली लाई
भर लेने को बिखरी दौलत
मैं भी दौड़ी दौड़ी आई
क्या छोड़ूँ क्या चुन लूँ इस में
लगता बड़ा झमेला है

In haste I come here
To gather this treasure spread about
I try to garner it all in my arms
And the mind is in a dilemma
What all shall I take
And what all shall I leave

एक अनोखा बाग है दुनिया
सुन्दर सुन्दर प्यारा प्यारा
मानो मीठा राग है दुनिया
पागल मन मेरा मस्ती में
कली सा खिल खिल खेला है

What a joyful garden this world is
So beautiful and lovely
The whole world is a sweet melody
And my mind is untamed in passion
Blossoming like new buds playing

Yes, all these emotions run through the mind when I look at this incredible and phenomenal treasure of enchanting melodies – this world of songs, here, with us.

A grand celebration for this inception day milestone.

A wonderful musical greetings to all readers and all members of the musical bandwagon.

And a bagful of wishes and blessings, that this tree may only proliferate further, day by passing day.

And that this journey may never cease.

तमन्ना है ये साथ चलते रहें हम ना बीते कभी ये सफर. . .

Song – Geeton Ka Sansaar Yahaan Par  (Nai Reet) (1948) Singer – Meena Kapoor, Lyrics – Kumar-Gupta, MD – SK Pal

Today 19th July’2021 is the thirteenth birthday of this blog. We all wish this blog a very ‘happy birthday’ today and celebrate this occasion by listening to a song which has become a customary way to celebrate the occasion every year .

I have in the past already written how I much I love this blog and how it has become a part of our life now. I will not repeat the same here today . However, I would like to mention my first interaction with this blog which happened on 15th September’2009 on the post here. I may have visited the blog on an earlier date but it was on this day that I commented for first time on the blog and thereafter it became a routine for me to visit this blog regularly. It soon become a daily practice, then it would check it up many times a day. Now this blog is with me all the time. 😊

Though my first comment on the blog came on 15.09.2009 I became a contributor to this blog nearly three years later in 2012.

My first lyrics contribution was posted on the blog on 13.09.2012.

One can notice that I will enter my tenth year on the blog in less than two months from now, and that will be a very special occasion for me, one that ould call for a celebration with songs.

So, the ‘surilaa safar’ continues …

Looking back at the years passed by and looking forward to the many musical moments ahead, today’s song aptly expresses my feelings on the occasion.

This song is from the ‘1992’ movie ‘Saatwaan Aasmaan’.

“Saatwaan Aasmaan-1992” was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for ‘Prathima Movies’. It was produced by Pranlal Mehta. Himanshu Brahamabhatt was the Chief Assistant Director and Salil Verghese was the Associate Director of this movie. It had Vivek Mushran, Pooja Bhatt, Avtar Gill, Tanvi Aazmi, Tej Sapru and Shekhar Kapoor. They were supported by Mushtaq Khan, Manmauji, Amrut Patel, Manju Mishra, Rubeena, Shammi, Madhu Kambikar, Banjara, Donald Burman, Abdul, Ramakant Burman,

Story of this movie was written by Suraj Sanim. He also wrote the screenplay and dialogues of this movie. R. Rajendran was the editor of this movie.
Suraj Sanim was also the lyricist of this movie.

It was passed by Censor Board on 07.04.1992.

“Saatwaan Aasmaan-1992” had as many as nine songs in it. (As per information available on net sources). Lata Mangeshkar, Udit Narayan, Gurpreet Kaur, Poornima, and Ghanshaym Vasvani had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music of this film was composed by Raam Laxman.

I have not watched this movie, but I remember this song from my ‘Kota Days’ I like this song very much. I cannot say much about this movie as I have not watched it. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Today’s song is sung by Udit Narayan and Lata Mangeshkar. Vivek Mushran and Pooja Bhatt lip-sync the song on screen.

Lyrics for today’s song are by Suraj Sanim and music is composed by Raam Laxman.

With today’s song this movie “Saatwaan Aasmaan-1992” makes its debut on the blog.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ASAD BLOG !

HEARTIEST CONGRATULATIONS TO ATUL JI FOR COMPLETING 13 YEARS OF HIS BLOG !!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL TEAM MEMBERS ON THIS OCCASION !!!

Today the Blog completes 13 years. Now that it is in its Teens, a lot of activity is expected. We are all with Atul ji in maintaining the lead position of this Blog in the Cyber world of HFM lovers.

I first came to know about this Blog somewhere in 2011. I do not remember the date or month. I had newly learnt how to operate the computer and I had the enthusiasm of a Novice to surf and find various sites and Blogs. I had completely retired from my work and was thinking of reverting to and rediscovering my old hobby of old films and music thereof. I had unpacked my old diaries and notebooks, wherein I had made notes about every film that I had seen from my childhood. I was thrilled when I saw this Blog while surfing.

I kept on visiting it often to read all the posts and enjoy familiar old songs. I found that the Blog is dedicated to film songs from the beginning to modern times. I was also impressed with the comments by its readers from almost every corner of the world. In those days, a lot of readers used to express their views by commenting. This gave additional information, a focus on improvement and understanding the choices of the visitors.

I also started making comments, armed with the information from my diaries and notebooks. These information pieces were authentic and unique because these were not to be found anywhere on the internet. I specialised in providing stories of films made in the period from the 30’s to the 60’s. On a rough estimate I posted around 600 film stories and almost the same number of information comments on films, music, starts etc etc. The other members of the Blog now started recognising me. On the prodding and encouragement of Atul ji, my first post came up on the Blog on 1-10-2012 and after that there was no looking back.

What is the speciality of this Blog ? I would unhesitatingly say – CREDIBILITY. This Blog is famous all over the Cyber world of old HFM lovers, as a place where correct Lyrics and information that is trustworthy and reliable, is available. I am very active on Social media and I feel very happy when excerpts from this Blog are produced as a proof of something in a dispute. I see people quoting from the Blog. This proves that the Blog has earned the honour of being a Reference Point for many people. This is the result of Atul ji’s strong conviction that information here must be beyond doubts, reliable and trustworthy.

Today, the Blog can boast of (till 17th July 2021)

No. of Song Posts 16474
No. of films represented 4470
No. of films with all songs covered 1271
No. of visitors till date 1,45,91,249

If you break up the number of visitors so far, everyday about 3118 people visited the Blog, i.e. 130 persons every hour. With this kind of statistics, no doubt, this Blog must be the No. 1 Blog, catering to the HFM lovers all over the world. (WordPress claims that it is read in 198 countries worldwide).

I feel honoured and proud to be a member of this team. Once again, I congratulate Atul ji and wish the Blog many more Anniversaries in future.

Today’s song is from an obscure film “Manager”-1947. The film was made by Tiwari productions and was directed by I.P.Tiwari. Obviously he seems to be the owner of the banner. His name is found only for this one film. Possibly he was one of those “novo rich” financers who cropped up due to the war period activities, who tried their hand at making and directing films. This social film had 7 songs written by lyricist Kumar Sharma and music was by a Debutant Music Director Ramkrishna Shinde.

Have you ever heard the name of a composer called HEMANT KEDAR ? No, it is not a pair like S-J,K-A or L-P. It is a misleading one name( like another such single name Shyamji Ghanshyamji, for example). OK, did you ever know about R.K.Shinde or Ram Shinde ? I am sure most of the readers may not have heard these names. These are the names of Ramkrishna Shinde. This reminds me of composer Snehal Bhatkar who used 5 different names as composer.

Ramkrishna Shinde was a multi talented composer, who could not shine, though he had talents. Further he started his career at a time when India’s big composers like C.Ramchandra,Naushad, Husnlal-Bhagatram, Shankar-Jaikishan etc were in their best performing period and had hogged almost all the major production houses as their Patrons. In this flood of Musical Tsunami, smaller composers remained smaller due to non availability of exposure and good banners, waning into oblivion ! Those who had talents plus good luck survived, but composers with talents without Luck were soon forgotten.

Ramkrishna Shinde was born on 19-4-1918 in Malvan area of Maharashtra Coastal Belt. He was the eldest amongst 2 brothers and 2 sisters When he was 9 yr. old, his father died and the family was shifted to Bombay, by aunt and uncle. His interest in music was unusual. He took training in vocals from Pt.Sitaram and learnt Sitar from Pt. Madhav rao. For survival, he took up a job in Dawn Mills. In 1944, he got married. Same time, he met Dancer Parvati Kumar and Tabla player Ramakant. He soon left the job and started giving music to Marathi stage plays. He was a very popular composer.

His first Hindi film as a composer was Manager-47, followed by Kiski Jeet-48 and then Bihari-48, with Naresh Bhattacharya. Not getting films anymore,he turned to giving music to Dance Ballets. He became so famous that 27 of his ballets went abroad with his music. He was called by Amiya Chakrawarty for giving Dance Music in Usha kiran’s film Gauna-50.

He returned to Hindi films again. This time as Hemant Kedar. Reason for this name- his favourite Ragas were Hemant and Kedar. He gave music to
Khaufnak Jungle-55, Police Station-59 and Captain India-60.

Hemant Kedar ( Like Daan singh and Jaidev) must be one whose unreleased films numbered many or more than his released films. Some of his Unreleased films were
1. Hamari kahani
2. Avinash
3. Sati mahananda
4. Jannat ki Hoor
5. Peeli kothi
6. Paataal Devta ( This was the film in which actress Mumtaz had Debuted, but not released)

Hemant Kedar gave music to 2 Marathi films. Side by side, he did 5-6 programmes on All India Radio. After the advent of Television, he started giving music to TV Ballets and was in great demand for it. He did about 15 Ballets on TV. He became ill and expired on 14-9-1985, leaving behind his wife and two daughters. Luckily, his wife had a good job. (Thanks to http://www.beetehuedin.blogspot.com and book ” मराठी चित्रपट संगीतकार कोष ” by Madhu Potdar, HFGK, muVyz and my notes for this information.)

I am not aware of the story of this film. However, on scanning the Film India issue, I found a remark about this film. According to that, it was a film about mill workers and their relations with its Manager. The cast of the film consisted of Purnima, Jai prakash, Sarla, Aziz, Tiwari, Ameenabai etc.etc. The Heroine Purnima made her Debut with this film. I do not know anything about actor Jai Prakash.

Today’s song is a duet by Amirbai Karnataki and A R Oza. It is a good song. With this song, film Manager-1947 makes its Debut on the Blog.

It can be seen from the table of 1989 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 38 songs in 19 movies released in 1989.
8 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1989 have been covered in the blog. All Lata songs from two movies (one song each from “Jurrat” and “Ram Lakhan”) have been covered. That leaves us with 36 songs from 17 movies of 1989 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Aakhri Badla”(1989) is the first movie of 1989 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Aakhri Badla”(1989) was produced by Produced by Biswanath Ghosh and Jibananda Ghosh and directed by Mangal Chakraborty for B T B Enterprises. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Prem Chopra, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anil Chatterjee, Tom Alter, Avijeet Sen, Bishwanath Ghoshe, Hilary Eastwick Held,
Babban Lal Yadav, Jay Shree T, Daljeet Kaur, Miss Sagiri –Suzaki, Miss Sayuri –Khishino, Miss Mayumi – Kitho, Gyanesh Mukherjee, Jibananda Ghoshe, Shiva, Pammi Shandhu, Babban, Biren Chatterjee, Jawahar Kaul, T.Makhino, T.Maeda, C.Key, K.Hotta,G.Togami,J.Robert, E.Newman etc. The movie had guest appearances by Yogita Bali(Chakraborty) and International fame Martial art expert Hirokazu-Kanazawa as Kitahara.

“Aakhri Badla”(1989) had a chequered history. It was planned on an ambitious grandiose scale as a bilingual movie in Banagla and Hindi. The movie kept getting delayed. By the time it could be released, more than 7 years later, the movie had few takers

The movie had four songs in it. One of them was a Kishore Kuamr Lata Mangeshkar duet. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

Only the audio of the song seems to be available. Salil Chaudhary had used this tune earlier in a Malayalam film “Etho Oru Swapnam” (1978) and then in the Tamil film “Azhiyadha Kolangal” (1978), both with music by Salil Chaudhary. The Malayalam film song “Poomanam Poothulanje” was sung by Yesudas, while the Tamil song “Poo Vannam Pola Nenjam” was sung by P. Jayachandran and P. Susheela. This tune was even older. It was initially released in 1980 under the title “Antarghat”.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Aakhri Badla”(1989) makes its debut in the blog.
