Today’s song is from the film Mera Munna-1948. This film was made by Minerva Movietone. However, it was not directed by Sohrab Modi, but by an outsider- Vishram Bedekar.

Nostalgia ! This feeling is very common amongst Senior Citizens. However, middle age or young people too may indulge in Nostalgia of their favourite times in life or even an incident. Nostalgia is defined as ” Sentimental yearning for the past”. Everyone has some sweet memories of the past. When alone,one indulges in Nostalgia. Sometimes it is shared with the near and dear ones. Many times, an event, an old friend, an old movie or a film songn or an old house,town or anything on this Earth can trigger Nostalgia, if happy memories are connected with it. When you visit your first company where you started your career, surely Nostalgic memories will haunt you.

Same thing happened to C.Ramchandra, when he visited Minerva Movietone in 1948 to sign a contract for giving music to its film ‘Mera Munna’. It was Minerva Movietone, where, in 1936, he had begun his training in Music Composition. After his first film as a Hero-” Naganand “-35 bombed badly ( the first show had only 7 people in the audience-who also left in the interval. Naturally, there were no further shows of the film ! ), he shifted from Kolhapur to Bombay, looking for suitable jobs.

One day he learnt that a big actor from a drama company was about to start a film studio and that recruitment was going on, he decided to try his luck there. Selling a Gold medal he had won in some competition, he stitched a coat and went for the interview. It was Sohrab Modi who took his interview and appointed him as an assitant worker on a salary of Rs. 15 pm. In the two and half to three years that he spent in Minerva, in the beginning of his struggle, he learnt many things.

At Minerva, his first teacher was Bundu Khan as MD. Second was Habib Khan. Next was B.S.Hoogan. C Ramchandra learnt notation writing and use of western instruments for indian ragas. After Hoogan, came Meer Saheb. He was truly a very knowledgeable musician and C Ramchandra learnt many things from him. Actually the training of Meer Saheb gave him the confidence that he too could give music and make tunes. During Meer Saheb’s tenure in Minerva, C Ramchandra became friendly with an young actor and director- Master Bhagwan. He was acting and directing a film ‘Bahadur Kissan’-38. Meer Saheb was the Music Director for this film. Most work was done by C Ramchandra, on behalf of Meer saheb. During this period Bhagwan and he became very good friends.

One day Bhagwan offered C Ramchandra an opportunity to give music to a Tamil film, which Bhagwan was to direct. C Ramchandra gladly did it. After doing one more Tamil film in Madras/Kerala, C Ramchandra got his first Hindi film ” Sukhi Jeevan”-42 as a music director-thanks to Master Bhagwan who was its director. This was the beginning of an eventful and illustrious career of C Ramchandra, who gave music in 112 films, composing 947 songs. He also sang 198 songs in 77 films during his career.

When Sohrab Modi sent a call to him to come for composing songs for one of his films, C Remembered remembered all this. While in Minerva, he knew Modi as a strict disciplinarian and a kind soul. In the subsequent period, C Ramchandra was impressed with the extraordinary success of Minerva movies like Pukar-39, Sikander-41 and Prithwi Vallabh-43. Afterall, his and Minerva’s careers had started together only ! Though he had become a famous and successful Music Director now with films like Shehnai, Saajan, Nadiya ke paar and Khidki etc amongst his 30 odd films, he went to meet Modi.

There was a tremendous change in circumstances when he left Minerva in 1938 and today when Minerva requested him to work for them in 1948. He had become so big that he could have easily refused to work for them, but he was not ungrateful. C Ramchandra has described this meeting to one of his friends, Isak Mujawar thus…

” When I entered the office of Minerva, after 10 years, I realised that while I had grown in my stature, Minerva had lost some of its sheen and its place among the top studios. Whatever I had learned while working here had made my foundation so strong that I could never repay Minerva’s debt fully. As I entered, I saw the same tall,well built Sohrab Modi and by his side Gauhar Mamajiwala sitting next to him. As soon as I crossed the door, both of them stood up. I was embarrassed. I went ahead and touched his feet. He murmured something and hugged me. I did Namaste to Gauhar ji. Modi talked briefly about his film and their expectations about the music. Then with a little hesitation, he asked me my fees. I smiled and said, “Give me just One Rupee, sir. That’s my fees for Minerva”. However, they did not agree and a nominal token fees was fixed. I signed the contract “.

Those were the days when artistes gratefully acknowledged the help they received in their early careers !

There is a name in the film’s cast- Wazir Mohammed Khan, who made his name written in Hindi film History for ever, for being the first ever singer on the screen, when he sang ” de de khuda ke naam par “, in film Aalam Ara-1931, India’s first Talkie film. Despite my efforts, I could not get any information about him, from any source at my disposal.

W.M.Khan was a Pathan. His first film was ‘Alam Ara’-31 and his last film was also Aalam Ara-73. he sang a song in the first film and again the same song in the similarly titled film Alam Ara-56. I saw him on the screen first time in film Kabuliwala-61, in which he lip synched the famous song ” Aye mere pyare watan…”. W.M.Khan acted in 73 films. He sang 6 songs in 4 films, namely Alam Ara-31, Sair e paristan-34, Dard e dil-34 and after 22 years he sang his first song again in film Alam Ara-56- though no record was issued for it. When he acted in the third version of Aalam Ara in 73, he became the first male actor to have worked in 3 films with the same title, from the very first Talkie film. The next and the only other actor to achieve this feat was Ashok kumar, who acted in Kangan-39, kangan-59 and kangan-72. The only female actress to achieve this feat was Sulochana ( Ruby Meyers) who had acted in Anarkali-28, Anarkali-35 and Anarkali-53.

Today’s song is the second song in a span of one month, which talks of ‘going to Bombay’, after a song from film ‘Kirti’-42, posted on 19-7-2018. The singer’s name of today’s song is not mentioned in HFGK. I hear 2 separate voices in the song, but people with better hearing than me can know more about the voices.

“Jeene Do”(1948) was directed by Adi F Kika and K A Majid for Jai Hind Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Menaka Devi, Harish, Pannalal, Kaiser, Shanta Kunwar, Ghulam Rasool, Faizbai, Leela Gupte, Chhota Shankar etc in it.

This “stunt” movie had nine songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Jeene Do”(1948) to aappear in the blog. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naashaad.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Geeta Dutt was the only female playback singer in the movie, it appears that she sang for the leading lady, who could be Menaka devi, going by the cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Bulo C Rani and Hansraj Bahl were the two music directors in this movie. This song is composed by Bulo C Rani.

Only the audio of the song is available. It appears almost certain that this song was lip synced by the lreading lady of the movie, namely Nigar Sultana. Nevertheless, i request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This lovely joie de vivre song becomes the 400th song from movies of 1948 to appear in the blog. This year thus joins years from 1949 till 1961 that already have more than 400 songs each in the blog. Movies released in all years from 1948 till 1961 with 400 plus songs in the blog- this is a nice little achievement for us. Movies of these 14 years combine to have as many as 6584 songs in the blog !

Lyrics

pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re

pyaar kiya tab jaana
hai dil ka chain ganwaana
aur apna aap mitaana mitaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana

kyun kyun bairan raat sataati hai
kyun bairan raat sataati hai
kyun aah nikalti
kyun bhaaye neer bahaana bahaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana

kyun dil mein dard sa rehta hai
kyun dil mein dard sa rehta hai
kyun chehra zard sa rehta hai
kyun chehra zard sa rehta hai
kyu bhool gaye muskaana muskaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana

kyun baadal ghir ghir aate hain
kyun badal ghir ghir aate hain
kyun jee mein aag lagaate hain
kyu jee me aag lagaate hain
saawan kyun hai suhaana suhaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana

It appears that Mohan Pictures, Bombay were on a spree to make movies begging with the word “Jaadui”. They had released three such movies in 1948 which went under titles like “Jaadui Shehnaai”, Jaadui Angoothhi”and “Jaadui Sindoor”. They were followed by “Jaadui Chitra” and “Jaadui Bansari”.

Advertisement given in magazines those days suggest that these movies were smashing the box office. 🙂 When I search for the songs of these movies, I find that not a single song from these “Jaadui ..” movies is showcased in the blog. In other words, the songs of these movies failed to make it big and they are not available all that easily.

“Jaadui Angoothhi”(1948) was directed by A M Khan. The movie had Husn Ara, Anil Kumar, Devraj, Kesari etc in it. This movie , a “musical thriller”, had 10 songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Jaadui Angoothhi”(1948) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Hamida Bano and A R Qureshi. Roopbani is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Qureshi, who was none other than the famous tabla player All Rakkha Qureshi, father of another Tabla wizard Zakir Hussain.

Here is this lovely romantic song from “Jaadui Angoothhi”(1948). Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

With this song, “Jaadui Angoothhi”(1948) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Hamaari gali aaya na karo (Jaadui Angoothhi)(1948) Singers-Hamida Bano, A R Qureshi, Lyrics-Roopbani, MD-A R Qureshi

Lyrics

Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o

“Gunsundari”(1948) was directed by Ratibhai Punatkar for Ajit Pictures, Bombay. This “social”movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Dulari, Chhagan Romeo, Saraswati, Babu Raje, Jalejar Reutor, Kamlesh Thakkar, Nazeera, Ibrahim, Chandramukhi, Master Pransukh etc in it.

The movie had 14 songs in it that were composed by three music directors viz. Bulo C Rani, Hansraj Bahl and Avinsh Vyas.

Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Gunsundari”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Pt Indra Chandra is the lyricist. The music director of this song is not known even though there were three music directors in the movie.

Only the audio of the song is available. The song is a fun song where a devrani (husband’s younger sister) teases her bhaabhi and exhorts her to be modern in her outlook. The list of things that made an Indian lady look modern in 1948 makes for interesting reading.

Here is this fun song from “Gunsundari”(1948). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. I also request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the music director of this song. My guess is that it could be Avinash Vyas.

Blog Day : 3608 Post No. : 14390

Regulars have been noticing that I have been rather irregular in posting articles in the blog for the last few weeks. While some of it was due to personal reasons (travelling etc), I had expected that I would have all the time in the world during the weekend (2 and 3 june 2018) when I hoped to try and make up for the slow going in the blog.

Month of May is traditionally a slow month for the blog because it is in this month that my wife and daughter (staying elsewhere) join me for their summer vacations. Earlier, they would stay in the same place for the month, visiting nearby places at the most, but now they are becoming more ambitious. My daughter, like most persons of her age group easily succumbs to this peer pressure. She has been pestering the two of us about visiting abroad during her vacations ever since she joined a medical college in Mumbai and found her peers doing that.

During the last summer vacation, when the two of them were with me and the daughter insisted on going abroad, we went to Nepal, which is some 300 kilometers by road from where I stay at present and that satisfied the daughter for the time being.

But this time she had raised her standards and she wanted the three of us to go to some “proper” foreign locations. So one week of may 2018 was spent doing just that. During this week, I did not have any time to post in the blog. When we had left for the trip, the blog was averaging just over 4 posts a day, and when we were back then this strike rate had fallen under 4 songs a day. It is still below that mark.

The daughter, no doubt fully satiated after the trip left for Mumbai three days later.

My wife planned to leave on saturday 2 june 2018. So I had hoped to have a free time on saturday and sunday, just like old times. 🙂

At the night of 1 june, just when it was time to go to bed, we heard sound of thunderstorm from outside. Often, rain and storms go unnoticed by people at night, but this one caused closed windows to open, while open windows rattled violently, threatening to come off their hinges. We closed some of the open windows. Some windows in some outer rooms were still open, but going to that room by opening some doors was not advisable, because an open door is much more of a nightmare than an open window under these circumstances.

Whenever we have such rain and storm situation, electricity is bound to go off. And so it did. Erratic electricity is nothing new in these parts, so people have invertors with them. We also have invertor. No electricity means no AC in this hot weather, So we spent the night under the air of fan. Luckily the invertor battery lasted till the whole night.

Next morning, when I went out at 5 AM to walk my dogs by turns, I found that big branches of a few trees had fallen on the road at two places. In addition, a few big branches had fallen on the gate of a neighbouring house, totally blocking that gate. Clearing these huge branches was going to take time. And it also became clear to me that restoration of electricity would not happen in a hurry.

My wife was scheduled to board a noon train at Bareilly that would take her to Lucknow by 4 PM and from there she would catch a train to Jabalpur. It turned out that the train she was to board at Bareilly would start late and she would miss her Lucknow train if she decided to go by that train. Trains running several hours late is quite common in these parts. My wife managed to get one such badly delayed train at 11:15 AM. So she arrived Lucknow comfortably in time.

It was saturday and I was at my work place for half a day where electricity was there thanks to generator backup. When I went home, I found that electricity was not yet restored. I knew that it was time to ration my invertor electricity because very little charge remained in the battery after using it all up during the whole night and early morning. So I did not use any electricity and did not even use my computer and wi fi.

On enquiry, I was informed that the state electricity board staff were working to rectify the faults and the likely time of restoration was 7 :30 PM. 7:30 PM came and went away and there was no sign of electricity coming back. Normally I would spend this time blogging or watching TV if anything interesting was on it. Instead of that, I was wondering how to minimise the effects of heat (it was hot and humid even at night time). I tried to switch on a tubelight for a few seconds and it immediately went off, signifying that the invertor battery had actually got discharged as I had feared.

It was clear that I had to spend the night without light and fan.

When I go to bed at night, the two dogs also like to sleep nearby at their chosen places. But before that they have their fight where I have to mediate. As it is, Bhole regards himself as my pet while Chhote is supposed to be my wife’s pet. So Bhole stakes his claim on me. He would accompany me wherever I go within the house. Under “normal” circumstances, I would be seated on my computer chair staring at the screen while Bhole would lie sprawled on the floor near by. He would not allow Chhote to enter the room. Chhote must enter the room at bed time. So what to do. He tries to enter the bedroom when Bhole is not looking and then slips under the bed.

But this is not a foolproof method. Bhole takes serious exception whenever Chhote tries to come in. So, to help Chhote, I restrain Bhole by grabbing his collar and that allows Chhote to enter the bedroom and slip under the bed. Then I try to pacify an irate Bhole by giving him a head massage while continuing to hold his collar. After some time, this massage pacifies him ,but when I release his collar, he goes near the bed and barks violently at Chhote, while Chhote too barks back.

After a few minutes, truce is called for the night. After some time, Chhote comes out of the bed and sleeps on the left side of the bed while Bhole is sleeping on the right side of the bed. When I wake up at say midnight or later, the two dogs would be happily seated next to each other. 🙂

Since it was dark so I was in no position to play mediator between the two dogs. They barked at each other for what looked like hours to me while I, unable to see anything tried to go back to sleep. Next morning, when I woke up (yes, I managed to get some sleep even after all this heat and humidity), I found that the two dogs had made peace with each other on their own and they were sleeping at their usual places on either side of the bed. 🙂

There was no electicity even on that morning, which was a sunday. When I read the newspapers, I came to know about the damage that the storm had caused. Hundreds of trees and their branched had fallen on electricity wires all over the city and elsewhere. So restoration work was going to take a while.

All this had stated to take its toll. The contents of fridge had started to rot. Previous day’s milk soured, as expected. some other stuff kept in the fridge also turned unuseable. I was running out of filtered water too since I could not operate the water purifier.

The charge on my mobiles (I have two of them) were also alarmingly low. 17 % in one and 36 % in another. My wife was travelling by train and I keep track of train movement on mobile on the NTES app when she (or the daughter) travels. When her train was on the verge of arriving at her destination, I phoned her and informed her about my mobile charge situation and informed her not to worry if she could not get me on mobile as it would only mean that my mobile battery had got discharged.

Some tubelights/ fans in the residence are on invertor and others are not. I had kept a few non-invertor switches on. At 8 :38 AM, I found these tubelights /CFLs getting illuminated ! So electricity was back after a wait of some 36 hours. I quickly plugged my mobiles for charging and switched on the water purifier.

Just as I was all praises for the Electricity Board employees, I found that the light had again gone off, after just five minutes. So I had to rush to switch off all the switches connected to invertor.

Exactly three hours later at 11:38, electricity came back, much to my glee. Again, it went off five minutes later.

In the meanwhile, my daughter had sent me a message to pay her mobile bill. The SIM that she uses is in my name and I pay its bill online. Once in the past I had failed to pay the bill and that connection had got disconnected. Getting it reconnected took a few hours but the trouble was not worth it because she had to phone from an unknown number (her friend’s) to inform me about her phone disconnected while I (and my wife) were worrying about her whereabouts. So I thought that I should pay her bill without delay. so even though I had no electricity, I switched the computer on (which showed 78% change) and I decided to use dongle (my backup internet connection) for payment. But before I could make the payment, the computer, showing 78 % change, suddenly changed its mind and announced that it had only 7 % change. Before I could make out what was going on, the computer swtched off abruptly and abnormally because of low change in its battery.

I messaged the daughter back telling her that I was without electicity, with low battery in my mobiles and with a discharged computer, so she needed to pay the bill herself.

One hour later, the light came back again, this time fortunately for a longer duration. even though the light went off again after some 40 minutes, this was enough time for my mobiles to get changed adequately, the water purifier to deliver adequate water to last for the day, and more importantly, the invertor battery managed to get changed a bit. After that, electricity kep coming and going but all that gave enough time for the Invertor battery to get changed. In other words, things had limped back to normalcy.

Or did they ? When I decided to swich on the computer, it failed to get swithed on to its desktop. The computer would try to install windows interminably without any results.

After lots and lots of trials and errors till late night, I realised that this computer had finally conked off and I needed to get a noew computer. so, from next morning (viz tpday 4 june 2018), I have been thinking about buying a new computer. I even souded our knowledgeable members in our whatsapp group to suggest what computer to buy.

all this will take a few days, but what about blogging in the interim. I tried a few tricks and they only gave partial results. Now, I have managed to get to the desktop pf my computer (I am myself surprised how) and so I can at least make use of this computer, something that was looking impossible till this morning.

The song that I have in mind has no relation to the dilemma that I have discussed above. it just happens to be a song that I stumbled upon while I was looking for a song of 1948. This song caught my eye because it is a rare song from a rare movie. The movie is “Oonch Neech”(1948). This movie was directed by Hem Chandar for New Theatres, Calcutta. ovie had The Bharti Devi, Sumitra devi, Chgandravati, Pal Mahendra, Hiralal, Poornendu, Gopal Mehra, Ansari, Deendayaal, Deepaali, Indira, Ramesh, Nirupama etc in it.

This was a movie that had come when “New Theatres” had lost its primacy and was on a free fall. As a result there were few takers for New Thratres movie like this. Even the songs ended up as forgotten.

The movie had five songs in it. One obscure song from the movie has been covered in the past.

This song is even more obscure. It is sung by Sudha Mukherji, a singer I had never heard about and who makes her debut in the blog with this song. Ramesh Pandey is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pankaj Mullick.

Only the audio of this song is available. The audio quality too is not vert good.

The song may be an obscure one, but I loved the song the very first time I herd it. The lyrics are superb, and so is the music, which sounds quite different from the usual music of Hindi movie songs of those days. This is one song that deserved to be better known among music lovers.

I have I have not been able to get many words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks;/ suggest corrections as applicable. I am sure one will be able to appreciate this song even better after we manage to get the missing words right. This song is about “phool” and the lyricist has come up with superb lyrics, which are sort of like “pushp ki abhilaasha”, an immortal poem by Makhan Lal Chaturvedi.

PS-After I typed out this article, I faced many more problems while posting this article in the blog. So message is clear me for . I need to have a new computer, and that too as soon as possible. 🙂

Song-Hasrat nahin jeene ki (Roop Rekha)(1948) Singer-Zeenat Begam, Lyrics-Preetam Jiyaayi, MD-Ravi Roy Chaudhury

Lyrics

hasrat nahin jeene ki
haan
mushqil nahin mar jaana
mushqil nahin mar jaana
jab dekh chuki aankhen
lut’ta hua kashaanah
lut’ta hua kashaanah
is toote huye dil ki
is toote huye dil ki
dhadkan na koi sun le

kuchh dil pe nazar rakhna
haan aan
kuch waqt ko samjhaana
kuch waqt ko samjhaana
jab dekh chuki aankhen
lut’ta hua kashaanah

jalta hai to jalne de
jalta hai to jalne de
dil se na dhuaan uthe
ye daagh chhupa rakhna
is aag ko pi jaana
is aag ko pi jaana
jab dekh chuki aankhe
lut’ta hua kashaanah

tadbeer banaaye kya
tatbeer banaaye kya
bigdi hui kismat ko
judta nahin hai jode
haan aan
toota hua paimaana
toota hua paimaana
jab dekh chuki aankhen
lut’ta hua kashaanah
lut’ta hua kashaanah
