“Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946) was directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Roshan Pictures, Bombay. This obscure movie, describe as a costume drama in HFGK, had Amirbai Karnataki, Prakash, Cuckoo, Rafi, Ansari, P D Lal, Malka, Hemlata, Agha Shapur etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Details about the singers of these songs are not known for any of these songs.

A few songs from this movie are available and so one can guess about the singers of this song.

And guess what ! This movie has at least two songs that were sung by Rafi ! Seeing that Rafi was struggling to make his mark as a playback singer in 1946, these solo songs sung by him in this movie must be one of his earliest songs in HFM.Indeed it was just the 11th solo song in HFM for Rafi in his fledgeling career.

Today, on the occasion of Eid, here is this devotional song from “Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946). Rafi is the singer. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Qureshy.

On looking at the cast, I find a name called Rafi. Could this be this Rafi ! It is known that he had acted in “Laila Majnu”(1945) and “Jugnu”(1947). So why he could not act in this movie ? I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie as well as on my guess about Rafi in this movie.

With this song, “Arab Ka Sitaara”(1946) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Milta hai kya namaaz mein sajde mein jaa ke dekh le (Arab ka Sitaara)(1946) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-S Qureshy

Lyrics

milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaa ke dekh le
milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaa ke dekh le
hoga khuda ke saamne
sar ko jhuka ke dekh le
hoga khuda ke saamne
sar ko jhuka ke dekh le

fikr o alam
na koi gham
hoga tujhe teri kasam
fikr o alam
na koi gham
hoga tujhe teri kasam
thhodi si der ke liye
masjid mein aa ke dekh le
thhodi si der ke liye
masjid mein aa ke dekh le

leti hai bas usi ka naam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah shaam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah sham
leti hai bas usi ka naam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah shaam
kaliyaan chaman mein subah sham
aankhon se bekhudi ke tu
parde hata ke dekh le
aankhon se bekhudi ke tu
parde hata ke dekh le

duniya ko dekhta hai kya
rab se bhi apni lau laga
duniya ko dekhta hai kya
rab se bhi apni lau laga
karke neeyat namaaz ki
jalwe khuda ke dekh le
karke neeyat namaz ki
jalwe khuda ke dekh le
milta hai kya namaaz mein
sajde mein jaake dekh le

Time to Yippeee another film. Today’s film is ‘Humjoli’ – not the one from 1970, but the one from way back in 1946. This film has 10 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Nine songs have already been showcased here on our blog. The last song for this film was posted in November last year. In that post, Atul ji has commented that the 10th song appears to be elusive, and is yet to be uploaded online. Today, as I checked for this song, I am unable to track it anywhere as yet. I could be wrong, as I have been earlier, maybe just limited by the way I searched for it. So I decided to upload this from my collection.

“All the thoughts expressed in this write-up are based on real life experience and day to day happenings, feelings, and emotions triggered by such incidences related with the blog and because of the love, admiration and respect for this blog”
Any ‘resemblance’ of the thoughts mentioned in the write-up is very much expected (and is not a mere ‘coincidence’) with ‘everyman’/ ‘everywoman’s thoughts who is ‘Hindi movie buff’ and lover of HFM for which the author should not be held responsible or criticized or punished in ‘any’ form 🙂
Also, as this is the ‘man ki baat’ of the author the ‘word limit’ does not matter 🙂

 This is another one of my long pending posts which I longed to share since couple of years now. I had kept this song reserved for a ‘special occasion’. However as the write-up could not be completed in time, I missed some ‘special occasions’ and so this still remained to be shared.

But then, what could be a better timing and a ‘greater occasion’ than it is to celebrate our Atul ji’s ‘10,000th post’.  So, here we go with this post today heartily Congratulating Atul ji on his 10,000 or 10K posts on the blog!!!

BINDIYA (1946) was produced under the banner of Sun Art Pictures and was directed by Chimanlal Luhar. The star cast included Amar, Ragini, E Billimoria, Kamal Zamindar, Leela Mishra, Pratima Devi, Shakir, Bhagwandas, Leela Pawar etc. The film was reviewed in August 1946 issue of ‘Filmindia’. I was surprised to find for a change that the review was somewhat lengthier than the usual. After reading the review, I came to know as to why it was so. The additional length of the review was utilised for heavily criticising the director of the film for his inapt handling of the emotional scenes and for Prabhulal Dwivedi, the story writer for the film story based on a mix of several mythological stories.

Unlike advanced nations, preserving history is given little importance in India. Hindi film music is no exception. Governnment and Hindi movie industry, who naturally have the biggest say in this field have not taken any concrete steps to preserve (and share) the artifacts of this art form.

So, it is left to private individuals who through their efforts have managed to preserve it and who share it with other music lovers.

Behzad Lucknowi was one of many Urdu poets who entered Hindi film industry in the 1930s. However, in my view, he was also one of the least visible poet-lyricists among those who had spent over a decade in the Hindi film industry in the 1930s and 1940s. Some of his high quality ghazals like zinda hoon iss tarah ki gham-e-zindagi nahin, tumhaare bulaane ko jee chaahta hai, rehne laga hai dil mein andhera tere baghair are still remembered today. Most listeners of these ghazals would identify these songs with Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar and Begum Akhtar, respectively, as it so often happens in case of popular Hindi film songs.
