Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 8
————————————————————————————–

Today 16th January’2022 is the ninetysixth birth anniversary (16.01.1926 – 28.01.2007) of Omkar Prasad Nayyar whom we know by the name of O.P. Nayyar.

His name and music need no introduction. He was the ‘legend’ and has given us many songs to listen and cherish forever. He crafted a special place for his music in the annals of HFM and his music will be loved till it lives on this planet.

I am big fan of OPN’s music and thought that I was aware of all his movies where he composed music for. So, when I got this mail from our dear Prakash ji containing a song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’ I was surprised as the name of the movie didn’t ring any song in my mind. I feel very awkward or rather shameful of myself that I was not aware of this movie and its songs.

Well, so I decided to present this song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’, and that way I can listen the other songs of this movie too.

This movie made its debut on the blog on 09.12.2009 with its song ‘Zaraa dekhiye meri saadgi’ and after that only two songs from this movie have been added on the blog so far. One on 16.01.2012 and one on 18.11.2017.

Today after ten years of 16.01.2012 the movie becomes eligible for one of its songs under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge – 2012-2022’. (Incidentally one more movie where music is composed by O.P. Nayyar is eligible today under BTYC as its’ songs were presented on 16.01.2012 and this movie is yet to be Yippeeee’ed. This movie is ‘Kalpana-1960).

Let us see the list of movies represented on the blog ten years back on 16.01.2012.

Here is the list.

Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai/a> Shahnaaz (1948) 6 songs posted

Muhabbat ho gayee jinse Kahin Din Kahin Raat(1968) All Songs covered

As mentioned above today we listen to a song from ‘Naseehat-1967’.

This movie was produced by Dara Singh (as mentioned by Atul ji in one of earlier posts).

‘Nasihat’ or ‘Naseehat-1967’ was directed by Om Patwar for ‘Deedar Movies, Bombay’.
It had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

This movie had seven soundtracks including one music track and that left us with six songs which are listed below.

Four songs out of six were written by S.H. Bihari (1,2,4 & 5 from the below list) and two songs were written by Aziz Kashmiri (3 & 6 in the below list)

As mentioned above music for this film was composed by O.P. Nayyar.

Mukesh and his Co-Singers – 8
——————————————–

Today, we take up Mukesh’s association with playback singer Jagjit Kaur wherein there is a solitary duet and that too in an unreleased film called ‘Hum Ek Hain’.

There are 3 released movies named ‘Hum Ek Hain’ and one unreleased. Mukesh has sung one solo in one of the released movies under Usha Khanna and one solo and a duet in the unreleased movie under Khaiyyam. Confused? Well, me too and hence the table below.

Films titled ‘HUM EK HAIN’
Year of release Composer Mukesh songs
1946 Hunslal Bhagatram Nil
1969 Usha Khanna One solo
Unreleased Khayyam A solo and a duet with Jagjit Kaur
1982 N/A N/A

Further, I came across a rather familiar song which is again represented by the name “Hum Ek Hain” – “Awaaz Do Hum Ek Hain.  And seeing that popular actors have been featured in the video version of the song, one is left to imagine which of the above films, the said song belongs to.

Fortunately, I did not have to struggle much to trace the details as it was amply clear that it was a stand-alone NFS (1962) patriotic song produced by Govt of India’s Films Division and sung with much gusto by Rafi Saab. Details of the said song are represented on our blog in this link here. Of all the composers Khayyam Saab scored music for the album thereby creating additional curiosity as well as confusion for me.

Now, an original film booklet sheet of 1969 film in which Mukesh has a solo is easily available on the net and is reproduced below.

For some strange reason, Mukesh’s name is missing in the list of playback singers. I am not sure if the song was dropped from the film soundtrack, but the solo does exist in audio form.

I have covered one post on Mukesh’s complete association with Usha Khanna – “Tera Mera Pyaar Koi, Aaj Kal Ki To Baat Nahin“, and two separate posts on his filmi (“Sab Tthaath Pada Reh Jaayega“) and NFS songs (“Na Hui Gar Mere Marne Se Tasalli Na Sahi“) under composer Khaiyyam. Many songs in the said three posts are still available for grabs for covering in the blog.

Coming to Mukesh’s combo with Jagjit Kaur, I have said in the beginning of the post that there is a solitary duet. It’s a surprise that the two artists did not collaborate more in spite of Mukesh seemingly to be close to Khayyam Saab family. However, we should remember that Khayyam Saab himself engaged Jagit Kaur sparingly for playback songs and relied more on the two Mangeshkar sisters.

As we are well aware, both Khayyam Saab and his wife Jagjit Kaur left for their heavenly abode in the very recent past.

Khayyam Saab:           18 February 1927 – 19 August 2019
Jagjit Kaur:                1930 – 15 August 2021

I pay tributes to both the artists and bring forth this duet of Jagjit Kaur and Mukesh from an unreleased film titled ‘Hum Ek Hain’ and composed by Khayyam Saab. Jagjit Kaur sings in unison with Mukesh and her voice is not heard separately. Such is the rarity of this only duet of the combo.

Song – Ram Kaho Ya Rahim Kaho Tum Krishn Kaho Ya Kareem Kaho  (Hum Ek Hain) (UR) (1960s) Singer – Mukesh, Jagjit Kaur (only in chorus with Mukesh), Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Khayyaam
Mukesh + Jagjit Kaur
Mukesh + Jagjit Kaur + Chorus

wo hai allah

awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo

tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho

mandir masjid ek hain dono us ke aage
uski leela dekh naa paayen mahal abhaage
duniya rasta bhool gayi hai aisa laage
mann mein koi khot rahe na mann tab jaage
aapas mein matbhed na barto
itna mat abhimaan karo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo

zaaten paaten varg niyam sab jhootthe naare
rasmen hon yaa reet ke bandhan dhong hain saare
nadaanon ne aap kiye hain ye batwaare
wo hai sab ka aaj bhi us ko sab hain pyaare
deen yahi hai dharm yahi hai
maanavta ka maan karo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho

kaun ye mandir dwaar khada hai sheesh jhukaaye
(aaa aaa aaa aaa)

tarse par bhagwan ke darshan kar na paaye
(aaa aaa aaa aaa)

sab par mandir dwaar khulen kab wo din aaye
(hmm hmm hmm hmm)

kab tak ye andher kahaan tak ye anyaay..ae..ae
kab tak ye andher kahaan tak ye anyaay..ae..ae
jis ne sabko ek banaaya
uska mat apmaan karo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho

वो है अल्लाह
वो है ईश्वर
वो है मुक्ति धाम
एक नहीं सौ रूप हैं उसके
एक नहीं सौ नाम

राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

मंदिर मस्जिद एक हैं दोनों उसके आगे
उसकी लीला देख ना पाएँ महल अभागे
दुनिया रस्ता भूल गई है ऐसा लागे
मन में कोइ खोट रहे ना मन तब जागे
आपस में मतभेद ना बरतो
इतना मत अभिमान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

ज़ातें पातें वर्ग नियम सब झूठे सारे
रस्में हों या रीत के बंधन ढोंग हैं सारे
नादानों ने आप किए हैं ये बटवारे
वो है सबका आज भी उसको सब हैं प्यारे
दीन यही है धर्म यही है
मानवता का मान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

कौन ये मंदिर द्वार खड़ा है शीश झुकाये
(आ आ आ आ)
तरसे पर भगवान के दर्शन कर ना पाये
(आ आ आ आ)
सब पर मंदिर द्वार खुलें कब वो दिन आए
(हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म)
कब तक ये अंधेर कहाँ तक ये अन्याय॰॰ए॰॰ए
कब तक ये अंधेर कहाँ तक ये अन्याय॰॰ए॰॰ए
जिसने सबको एक बनाया
उसका मत अपमान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो

Today’s song is from a C grade film called Baghi Sardar (1956).

I remember once Atul ji had expressed his opinion that ‘many times the B and C grade films provide A grade music’. I tend to agree with his opinion on this issue. There are many examples of songs from costume, stunt, action and religious films which became very popular. Off hand I remember at least two songs. The first was “Zara Saamne To Aa O Chhaliye” from a religious film ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ (1957). It was sung by Lata and Rafi, written by Bharat Vyas and music was by SN Tripathi. This song not only became very popular, but it became the No. 1 song on Binaca Geet Mala for 4 weeks. The second was a Rafi song “Parwardigar e Aalam, Tera Hi Hai Sahara” from the film ‘Hatimtai’ (1956). There was another song also from this film”Jhoomti Hai Nazar Jhoomta Hai Pyaar” which too became very popular. This was a costume film.

Another example comes to my mind. A qawwaali from the film ‘Al Hilal’ (1958), a costume film. This qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne” became very famous. This song also had the prestigious honor of being the 5000th song for this Blog on 13-11-2011. Further, it had an unique honor of having write ups from 3 stalwarts, namely Atul ji, Sudhir ji and Raja ji. Incidentally, earlier in 1935 also there was a film Al Hilal, first directorial venture of the great Mehboob Khan. This was a film made by Sagar Movietone. The songs of this film also became very popular. However, since the playback had not yet started then, no records were issued for these songs.

I used to like watching religious films because of the trick scenes of the films. I liked stunt and action films for their death defying stunts by the actors and I saw costume films because of their King, Queen and evil Vazir stories. Children liking such films, for the reasons given here, is understandable, but I wondered how adults and grown up people came to see such films. Later I learnt that there is a child hidden in every adult.

This child in some adults gets excited with magic, supernatural strength and fighting. Such people constituted the audience of B and C grade films. The audience for religious films constituted old adults, and ladies, who believed in God’s power. Film makers all over the world have always taken such people as their targets and films were made to attract them and satisfy their emotions.

Right from the First Silent film ‘Raja Harishchandra’ (1913), films have been made on religious stories. A vast nation like India provides plenty of folk tales and all these have been used to make films. In addition, Arabian Night stories of 1001 was yet another bumper source of masala for making interesting films. The 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and to some extent the 60’s had been making stunt / action / costume / religious films. In early films, till film ‘Aan’ (1952), the actors working in the films used to do all the stunts themselves. From this film, use of doubles and fight masters/composers started being used. In film ‘Aan’, the fights and the horses were managed by Azim Bhai and Douglas took care of fight scenes involving fencing. Same year, in films like ‘Sinbad Jahaazi’ (1952) and ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo) (1952), the south developed hero Ranjan (real name Ramnarayan Venkatraman Sarma) appeared on Hindi scene in Bombay and entertained us with his Olympic level fencing fights. Earlier he was seen in ‘Chandralekha’ (1948), ‘Nishan’ (1949) and ‘Mangala’ (1949) – remakes of their Tamil films. In the subsequent years these Fight Masters became ‘Action Directors’.

In the films from 1935 to the 1950s, Nadia and others used to perform the stunts themselves. In the 60’s – a decade dominated by romantic films, for heroes, the action was mostly relegated to the climax scenes to rescue the ‘Damsels in Distress’ ! The 60’s also saw the emergence of ‘The Action Hero’. The first film, where a hero dared to bare his chest for the first time, was in film ‘Phool Aur Patthar” (1966) and the action hero was born with Dharmendra !

The set of actors, directors, producers, banners and even the audience was fixed for such films. Certain theaters were earmarked to exhibit such films in every city and small town. Some heroes of these action films, later on, became directors for such movies e.g. Majnu, Kamran, Daljit, John Cavas etc. ‘Baghi Sardar’ (1956) was also directed by Majnu, who started his talkie film career with a parody film ‘Majnu’ (1935). Though his original name was Harold Lewis, he was branded as Majnu and he too continued with this name.

MAJNU – Harold Lewis was a Punjabi Christian. He was born on 2-11-1913. It is said that before joining films, Harold had worked in circus as a joker. He acted in 3 Silent films, including ‘Flames Of Flesh’ (1930).

He was the childhood friend of Roop K Shorey. When Shorey wanted to make his second film, he chose Harold as the hero. Majnu was introduced as a leading man opposite Shyama Zutshi by producer/director Roop K Shorey in film ‘Majnu’ (1935) — a musical comedy satirizing the old story of Laila Majnu, produced, directed and shot in Lahore with Ghulam Haider as music director. With daring motorbike stunts and special effects, audiences were thrilled at the sight of Majnu strapped on the railway tracks by the villain.

The film was a success and RK Shorey repeated Majnu as the leading man in his next film, ‘Tarzan Ki Beti’ (1938). ‘Tarzan Ki Beti’ was hailed as the best jungle picture ever produced in India at the time. Filmed in the snowy Himalayas, the film topped its predecessor in its action sequences and placed Punjab on the entertainment map of India and the world.

Majnu appeared in almost all of Shorey’s films. He was also doing films with other producers. In 1942 he did a double role in ‘Nishani’ and in 1943 he directed his first film ‘Paapi’. Shorey also gave him a film ‘Badnami’ (1946) for direction and it was here that Majnu met IS Johar who wrote the story and dialogues of ‘Badnami’.

Majnu paired with IS Johar in ‘Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949), the debut film of Johar. Later they made a comedy pair in 10 films, including the hit ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956). His last film with Johar was ‘Akalmand’ (1966).

Majnu acted in 77 films. His first film was ‘Majnu’ (1935) and his much delayed and released last film was ‘Shri Krishna Bhakti’ (1973). He acted in many Punjabi films also. He directed 8 films including ‘Paapi’ (1943), ‘Badnami’ (1946), ‘Son Of Alibaba’ (1955), ‘Tatar Ka Chor’ (1955), ‘Malika’ (1956), ‘Basre Ki Hoor’ (1956), ‘Baghi Sardar’ (1956), and his last film – ‘Chandu’ (1958).

Harold Lewis aka Majnu died on 26-3-1974.

The cast of this film consisted of Daljit, Chitra, Majnu, Ameeta, Amarnath, Prithvipal, Shaikh, Helen, Kammo, Satish Batra, Ramesh Thakkar, Shakuntala, Kanchanmala, Jugal Kishore etc. The music for this film was given by composer BN Bali. He was one of those small time composers, who got only the B and C grade films. First of all, let us know who this BN Bali is. There was yet another composer Bali, in the early era of Hindi films – HCBali or Harishchandra Bali (20-3-1906 to 24-6-1976), the expert classical singer who changed into a successful composer is credited with discovering KL Saigal in the early 30s.

BN Bali or Baldev Nath Bali too was a good singer and was a composer restricted to mostly religious or low budget films. He gave music from ‘Bedard’ (1949) up to ‘Do Dilwaale’ (1973), a total of 24 films, including one unreleased film ‘Bahut Door’ (1940s). He also gave music to a Haryanvi film in 1973. Though he composed music with a variety, somehow he lacked what it takes to make it to the Big league. On the contrary, BN Bali is known for copying the popular tunes of other composers blatantly.

“Jab Un Ka Khayal Aata Hai”, sung by Rafi in ‘Pehla Pehla Pyar’ was a copy of Rafi’s “Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai” by Hansraj behl. “Sapne Meine Saiyan Tum Aaya Na Karo” – Asha / Manna Dey song was a true copy of OP Nayyar’s “Ek Pardesi Mera Dil Le Gaya”, and “Tu Us Ka Kar Bhala” – Rafi in ‘Raja Vikram’ sang the same “Bhagwaan” tune as in “O Duniya Ke Rakhwaale” etc.

Today’s song also resembles some song, but I am unable to recollect exactly. If some reader recognizes the original song, please mention as your comment here.

*Note: – Songs for films ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Bharat Darshan’ and ‘Fighter Sheela’ seems to be unavailable as of now).

‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ is directed by Naresh Kumar for Dimple Films, Bombay. He is also the producer of this movie. This movie was presented by Rajendra Kumar. The star cast includes Rajendra Kumar, Rekha, Sujit Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Satyadeep, Shamsher, Aarti, Ajit Sachdev, Sundar, Bhagwan, Kamaldeep, Kanhaiyyalal and others.

Dialogues of this movie are written by Rajinder Krishan. And editing of this movie is done by Govind Dalwadi. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.10.1972.

‘Gaaon Hamaaraa Shehar Tumhaaraa’ had four songs written by Rajinder Krishan and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle had given their voices to the songs in this movie. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

S No Song Title Singer/s
01 Nayi hawaa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chalaa Mohd Rafi
02 Ik pyaar karnewaale ne ik pyaar karnewaale se ye poochha Mohd Rafi
03 Kaise kahoon kis’se kahoon sharm ki hai baat Asha Bhonsle
04 Jaana hai jaana hai door kahin jaana hai Lata Mangeshkar

Today’s song is the first song in the movie, and it is played while the titles roll on. It is sung by Mohd Rafi, and on-screen Rajendra Kumar is lip-syncing the song. Rajendra Kumar is shown carrying his luggage and singing the song and telling the ‘gaaonwaalaas that he is going to ‘shehar’ now.

Some other artists, (whom I am unable to identify) can also be seen in the picturisation of this song which shows Rajendra Kumar’s journey from ‘village’ to ‘city’ and the city is none other than Bombay (current day Mumbai).

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to the today’s song

With the today’s song the movie ‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ makes its debut on the blog.

Song – Nai Hawa Mein Udne Dekho Ban Ka Mor Chala (Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara) (1972) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Rajinder Krishan, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

nayi hawa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

nayi hawa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo o
main to shehar ki ore chala

sunte hain shehar mein jab jab
saawan bhaadon aata hai
sunte hain shehar mein jab jab
saawan bhaadon aata hai
paani ki boondon ke badle
harey note barsaataa hai
bhar letein hai jholi
jiska jitna zor chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

ye bhi suna hai raat wahaan ki
din ko sharmaati hai
ye bhi suna hai raat wahaan ki
din ko sharmaati hai
deewaaron ko haath lagaao
to batti jal jaati hai
apne ghar to diya kabhi naa
saari raat jala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

ye dharti aakaash wahaan bhi
hoga yaa naa hoga aa
ye dharti aakaash wahaan bhi
hoga yaa naa hoga aa
dekha jaayega kismat mein
jo bhi likha hoga
nikal pade jab ghar se
kyun naa karega raam bhala aa
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo o
main to shehar ki ore chala
aon Hamaara

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 08
———————————————–

14 Jan – Remembrance Day of Chitragupta

Chitragupta has recorded 260 plus songs with Rafi Sahab for Hindi and Bhojpuri films during the period 1950 to 1980.  Having gone through the whole list of these songs, I have come to the conclusion that I am a creature of radio.  The songs heard on radio long back ring a bell and I am drawn to them.  There are other well-known songs, which I had not heard on the radio as a child, they don’t make this short list of my personal favorites.

Chal Ud Ja Re Panchhi Ke Ab Ye Des Hua Begaana

Chali Chali Re Patang Meri Chali Re

Laagi Chhoote Na Ab To Sanam

Deewaana Aadmi Ko Banaati Hain Rotiyaan

Teri Duniya Se Door Chale Ho Ke Majboor

Koi Bata De Dil Hai Jahaan

Mujhe Dard e Dil Ka Pata Na Tha

Jaag Dil e Deewaana Rut Jaagi Vasl e Yaar Ki

Ye Parbaton Ke Daayera Ye Shaam Ka Dhuaan

There are some songs, which I have discovered in recent years and written posts for them too.  But since I can’t recall the tune and the lyrics and the feel of the song, by just looking at the mukhda, is not the songs fault.  So, if some people find their personal favorites missing from the above list of Rafi Sahab’s solos and duets under Chitragupta, they can blame me.

 Today is the 31st death anniversary of veteran music director Chitagupta, who has composed 1000 plus song in his long career from 1940’s to 80’s. In commemoration, I am discussing a Rafi solo, composed by Chitragupta and written by Manohar Khanna for the film ‘Zindagi ke Mele’(1956). Only two songs from this film are posted in the blog.

Kar Le Ri Solah Singaar
Tu Meri Heroine Main Tera Hero

It is said that Chitragupta never reached the status of A grade music directors.  But from where I can see, it doesn’t make any difference in the long run.  Because his compositions have survived the test of time, just like most of the melodious and memorable work done by all the music directors of the golden era of Hindi film music.  The field was crowded in the 50’s with talented and established MD’s and also with new aspirants.  The songs of all the composers are equally appreciated and loved.  I have always found the unheard (by me) songs of Chitragupt, very melodious and likable, with a spirit of their own.  They make their mark and leave an impression, with their rustic flavor.  I always make it a point to listen to his songs whenever they appear in the blog, especially solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar.  500 of these songs are already posted in the blog, as can be seen in the table.

Chitragupta 500 139 movies (1057)
Manohar Lal Khanna 46

The song is lamenting the society and its remorseless, paralyzed state in the face of injustice.  ‘Duniya Waalon’ are the mute spectators of an unjust practice, which those suffering it do not deserve.  And those who standby and do nothing to stop the injustice, cruelty and ugliness in the society are to be equally held responsible, because they had the means to oppose the practice and should have raised their voices.  But they chose to do nothing, and there have been very few social reformers in India who have actively worked to stop this practice of ‘dahej’.  The experience of civilizational development has shown that making criminal laws, has not worked in reducing the crimes.  Crimes continue to increase, despite stringent laws.  The reforms have to stem from the value system in the society.   Like many other social evils, the ‘dahej’ and dowry system has become a part of the landscape in our enlightened society.  Here we think that we are the culture and we have learnt to turn the other way, in the name of civilized and appropriate behavior.

The truth camouflaged into lies and lies camouflaged as truth.

The movie title ‘Zindagi Ke Mele’ reminds me of the iconic song, this unforgettable Rafi solo :

ye zindagi ke mele
ye zindagi ke mele
duniyaa mein kam na honge
afsos ham na honge


Song – Saji Sajaai Dulhan Reh Gayi Baabul Neer Bahaaye (Zindagi Ke Mele) (1956) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Manohar Khanna, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

maathhe lagaa hai daag jo kaala

baabul neer bahaaye
o duniyaa waalo
kaisa tumhaara nyaaye

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 159 # Missing Films of 1972 – 04#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the 197’ movie ‘Do Gaj Zameen Ke Neeche’.

I vaguely remember that when I was still a child our senior friends used to discuss about this movie. In the ‘horror’ ‘genre’ of movies, this movie was a first of its kind I think (knowledgeable readers can throw light on this). This was the first by Ramsay Brothers in the horror category.

This movie is a making a debut on the blog today, and it is one of the movies from the year 1972 that was missing from the blog till now. Alphabetically this is the 38th movie of 1972 as per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). Following are the details.

Do Gaj Zameen Ke Neeche R Tulsi Shyam Sapan-Jagmohan 29.08.1972

Making a debut on the blog today

3

As mentioned earlier, from the above list of movies songs for ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’ and ‘Bharat Darshan’ seems to be unavailable as of now.

‘Do Gaj Zameen Ke Neeche’ was directed by R Tulsi Shyam for Ramsay Film, Bombay. This was a suspense movie. It had Surendra Kumar, Pooja, Imtiaz, Shobhna (New Discovery), Satyen Kappu, Smita, Mayank, Habib, Dhoomal and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.08.1972.

This movie had three songs written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and composed to music by Sapan-Jagmohan. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Main hoon teri joganiya shyam, Vani Jairam
02 Ik panchhi ban ke main udti jaaun, Vani Jairam
03 Pii kea aye gharwa bedardi aadhi aadhi raat Asha Bhonsle

I guess that today’s song is on screen performed by actress Shobhna. Also seen in the picturisation is one actor and few child artists who I am unable to identify. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to the today’s song …

With the today’s song the movie ‘Do Gaj Zameen Ke Neeche’ makes its debut on the blog.

It was the 19th death anniversary of Qamar Jalaalabadi on 9th January 2022. Some months ago, I found this very sweet and sad solo song by Rafi Sahab and it is been in my drafts all this while. The movie is ‘Gauna’ of 1950. Lyricist is Qamar Jalaalabadi and composers are Husnlal-Bhagatram.

It is a poignant rendition of a short 4 sha’ir ghazal. The following three songs from this movie are posted in the blog out of total 7 songs.

Song Date of post
Ban ban ke mit gayin hain taqdeer ki lakeeren 26 February 2012
Aaj kisi se ho gayin aankhen chaar chaar chaar 22 October 2016
Mere dil ko jalaaya na karo 10 June 2021

This is a very interesting music score actually with songs by Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar and Shamshad begum, along-with a Shamshad-Geeta duet, remaining to be posted. This will be a treat to discover, listen and post one by one.

This is the present tally of the creators of this song, in the blog:

artist Songs in the blog Songs of artist in his career
Husnlal Bhagatram 303 50 movies (451)
Qamar Jalalabadi 400 721
Rafi 3171 4846

It appears that only audio of these songs are available. This movie was directed by Amiya Chakrobarty and had actors like Anoop Kumar, Purnima, Wasti, Usha Kiran, Indumati, S. Nazir and Kesari.

Today’s song is from the film ‘The Burning Train -1980’.

‘The Burning Train -1980’ was the 275th movie to be introduced on the blog on the 143rd day of the blog (on 8 december 2008) . Today the number of movies launched on the blog has reached 4562 on 12 January 2022. These numbers give us some idea of the long journey of the movie ‘The Burning Train” on the blog. 😊

The first song from this movie was posted on 08.12.2008. Today, 4784 days later(on 12.01.2022) we are posting the final song from this movie. So, “The Burning Train-1980” finally arrives at its destination YIPPEE station on the blog today. It becomes the 1304th movie to get YIPPEED in the blog.

“The Burning Train-1980” was one of the most ambitious movies from the Chopras’ (B.R. Chopra Films). It had a long list of star-artists performing in it.
I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my parents when I was a child. Later, as I grew, I kept reading about this movie and kept listening to its songs as I liked them all. I think this movie should be ‘one of the most discussed or hyped but less successful commercially movie ’ of its time.

I loved to watch this movie whenever it was played on Cable TV or TV channels. It must have been liked by many like me and may be many in the new generations in eighties, nineties and more. This movie has good songs written by Sahir and composed by R.D. Burman. Especially its qawwali ‘pal do pal ka saath hamaara’ is liked even today.

‘The Burning Train -1980’ was directed by Ravi Chopra for B.R. Films, Bombay. It was produced by B.R. Chopra. Ravi Chopra also wrote the story of this movie.

It had Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, Parveen Babi, Neetu Singh, Danny, Vinod Mehra, Jeetendra, Navin Nischol, Simi, Asha Sachdev, Padmini Kapila, Romesh Sharma, Payal, Asrani, Ranjeet, Iftekhar, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Nana Palsikar, Rajendra Nath, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Padma Khanna, Komila Virk, Nazir Hussain, Indrani Mukherji, Paintal, Dinesh Thakur, Yunus Parvez, Shammi, Ravindra Kapoor, T.P. Jain, Jankidas, Jagdish Raj, Gufi, Sudha Shivpuri, M. Rajan, Uma Dhawan, Mac Mohan, Anand Balraj, Prem Bedi, Master Bittoo, Baby Khushboo, Junior Danny, Master Romy, Master Salim and others.

Madan Puri, Chandrashekhar, Satyen Kappu and Urmila Bhatt make a guest appearance in this movie.
Its screenplay and dialogues were written by Kamleshwar ji. Pran Mehra was the chief editor for this movie and S.B. Mane and R.P. Bapat assisted him. This movie was passed by Censor Board 20.03.1980.

This movie had six songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by R.D. Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Padmini Kolhapure and Sushma Shreshtha and Usha Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, five songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier. Here are the details of all the six songs of this movie.

Today’s song is from the film with a funny name- Pilpili Saheb-1954.

When I saw this film’s posters in Hyderabad in 1954 , I laughed at the title of the film. I thought that the film had to do something with the yellow colour ! None of my friends knew the meaning of this word. After intense discussion, we decided to go to our Hindi teacher-Mathur sir. He was from Allahabad and was a very jovial person. He treated the students with a lot of humour and gentle talk. So we did not feel any fear or awkwardness to ask him this question. Otherwise, in those days asking such questions to any teacher was a certain invitation to caning !

Mathur Sir explained that Pilpili Saheb means a villager who dons modern western clothes, like Pant, Shirt, Coat, Hat etc. Listening to this reply, I felt an urge to see the film. As such the film had few comedians like Agha, Sunder and Mehmood.

Out of the 9 songs of the film, 4 songs are already on the blog. The first song appeared here on 4-3-2011. It was a duet of Meena Mangeshkar and Mohd. Rafi. That time Atul ji had called the song a very rare song and rightly so. That was because Meena Mangeshkar had sung very few songs in Hindi films. (She had already become Meena Khadikar after her recent marriage then, in 1953). She sang only 13 songs in 11 films, during a period of 38 years ( 1952 ton 1990). Earlier it was felt that her songs are only 12 in 10 films, but Mahesh Mamdapur has found out one more song of Meena from film Pehli Shadi-1953, with Asha Bhosle and Mohantara Ajinkya (nee Talpade). Thank you, Mahesh ji. Today’s song is a triad with Usha Mangeshkar and a newcomer Shaminder Singh Pal.

Here is a short Bio of singer Shaminder Singh, for the benefit of those who are not aware of this less known singer, who sang in Hindi films between 1954 to 1973.This was written by our Sadanand Kamath ji on 18-9-2012 in one of his posts. Thanks for this.

Shaminder( also known as Bhai Shaminder Singh) born in 1930/31, belonged to a wealthy landlord sikh family in Muktsar Sahib district of Punjab. It is said that the family owned almost half of the village where they stayed. Since his childhood, he was fond of music. He was a fan of Mohammed Rafi and Talat Mehmood whose songs he would listen to on the radio for hours and sing in sync with their songs. He adored Lata Mangeshkar as a Goddess. As he grew up, singing became his hobby and he could sing songs in the style of Rafi and Talat at ease.

As I said earlier, singing a duet song with Lata Mangeshkar was his obsession and to achieve his goal, he left his village for Bombay (Mumbai) some time in 1953 and met Sardul Kwatra, who was an upcoming music director. Sardul found that Shaminder had the quality of a professional playback singer. He felt that there was a man who could sing in a voice which had a blend of Rafi and Talat. So he decided to use him as a playback singer for songs in his Punjabi film ‘Vanjara’ (1954) which was being produced by Sardul’s family. In this film, there was a duet song which he was planning to get Shamshad Begum to sing with Shaminder. However, Shaminder was bent upon singing this song with Lata Mangeshkar. To fulfill his obsession, he offered a carrot to Sardul by way of financing his Punjabi film. This trick worked with Sardul. I had read elsewhere that Sardul Kwatra was a charming person especially among women folks. Probably with his charm, he must have persuaded Lata Mangeshkar to sing a Punjabi song with a newcomer Shaminder. Fortunately for Shaminder, not only this duet song but all songs sungs by him in this film became hits with the masses of Punjab.

Having tasted success, Shaminder was now interested in singing in Hindi films and again his obsession was singing a duet with Lata Mangeshkar. He got the chance to sing with her in the film ‘Pilpili Saheb’ (1954). It is said that he also got a chance to sing with Asha Bhonsle in some other films but I could not locate any such song in YT. In any case, he did get the chance to sing a song with Geeta Dutt in the film ‘Son of Alibaba’ (1954). I find that he sang almost all of his Hindi film songs under the baton of Sardul Kwatra. Later, Mohinder also took him as a playback singer for Punjabi films.

Having fulfilled his obsession to sing with Lata Mangeshkar, he was no longer very much interested in playback singing. In all, he sang only 15 Hindi songs in 8 films, namely Pilpili Saheb-54, Pensioner-54, Tees Maar Khan-55, Son of Alibaba-55, Jalwa-55, Ghar ghar mein diwali-55, Kala Chashma-62 and finally Mera Desh mera Dharam-73. By late 50s/early 60s, he turned to acting in Punjabi and Hindi films. In Punjabi films he mostly acted in lead roles while in Hindi films, he got side roles in a few films like ‘Aas Ka Panchhi’-1961, ‘Anpadh’ -1962, Bank Robbery-1969 and Sultana Daku-1972. He acted mainly in Punjabi films.
He passed away some time in the early 90s.( The article is a little adapted to include his film and song details.)

I had given the storyline of the film Pilpili Saheb-1954, some 11 years ago, as a comment on the film’s second song presented on 3-11-2011. For the benefit of our new readers, here it is…

PILPILI SAHEB(1954) was a Kwatra film production,produced by Malika and N.S.Kwatra,Directed by H.S.Kwatra and Music by Sardul Kwatra. Thus it was an all family affair.
The film cast was full of funsters like Agha,Sunder,Mehmood and a couple of beauties like Shyama,Kuldip kaur,Lalita kumari,Helen,Mumtaz(old),but still it failed at the Box office.

The story and Dialogues were by S.P.Bakshi and S.K.Prabhakar and s/play by Ravi Kapoor.

Pilpili Saheb is an Emotional-Romantic Musical-Comedy-Thriller Family Drama Film crafted with excellence by H.S. Kwatra. The Story revolves around the life of Pilpili Saheb (played by Agha)- A Kind-Hearted man living alone in this world and loves to live by his means and falls in love with Rani (played by Shyama)- A Sweet girl and wants to marry her. He crossed every obstacle and hurdles in front of him and wanted her to love him- without knowing she is married to another man (played by Pran), leading to consequences.

In this film Agha is PILPILI SAHEB.In his villege,he loves Rani(Shyama) for whom he wants to build a Taj Mahal,but first he must win her love to marry her and she should die before him !

To get her he tries everything,leaves the village,rides a Donkey,cleans utensils,becomes a photographer,acts on stage-a clown,a villain,a Hero etc etc.
There is a twist in the tale.Thru a stage artist,it is revealed that Rani is already a married woman and her husband is Pran.
Even his friend Sunder who loves Kuldip Kaur,marries and lives happily.

Indian cine goers have fixed ideas about the end results of a film-like Good wins over Bad,Lovers either unite or die,The Poor wins in the end etc.The end either has to be a Tragedy or a happy ending.

Pilpili Saheb had an utterly strange ending which was seen as cheating by the viewers,instead of getting amused. Therefore,although the film had good music,comedy scenes etc,still it failed miserably at the Box office.

Let us now listen to this rare song of Meena Mangeshkar, with sister Usha Mangeshkar and Shaminder Singh.
