I often wonder if is it possible to go through and listen to all the songs that have already been posted on the blog? And, can I recall each of them when somebody asks me or refer to a film’s name and pose a question about its music director, lyricists or other artists or the star-cast of the movie?

I don’t know about others but for me it seems to be an impossible task as of now. Even though I am browsing the blog every now and then each day, still there are many many movies and their songs I have to go through. And when we found a missing gem of song that has not been posted on the blog, we are surprised to note that.

Today’s song is such a song, which according to me should have been posted on the blog long back. (But then I would not have got this chance of putting my thoughts here 🙂 ).

All this would not have been possible without the ‘Geet Kosh’ and ‘links’ of these songs. For this we have to thank all who have created the ‘Geet Kosh’ and also those enthusiasts who have uploaded and made these songs available online.

Today’s song is from the ‘1950’ movie ‘Sartaaj’. This seems to be a lesser known movie of its time.

“Sartaaj-1950” was directed by S. Khalil for ‘Umar Khayyam Films, Bombay’. It had Munawwar Sultana, Motilal, Manorama, Ansari, Mirza Musharraf, Shyama, Kuckkoo, Ratanbai and others.

This movie has nine songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950).

Three lyricists were used for these nine songs, where Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote six songs, Shewan Rizvi wrote two songs and Partav Lakhanavi wrote one song in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Husnlal-Bhagtram.

Here is the list of songs in this movie and their status on the blog:-

09 Rahe khush teri duniya… jigar ke tukde kiye huye… Lata Mangeshkar Being presented today

We can see from the above table that four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist..

Music is composed by Husnalal-Bhagatram. ( After listening to today’s song the tune sounds familiar, but I am not able to recall the song that this song reminds me of.).

Only the audio of this song is available. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this song.

Last but not the least, a big thanks to our regular reader Mr Deepak Patwardhan who had send reminder of this beautiful song that was missing from the blog till now.

Let us listen to the song now …

————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (6 April 2012) saw as many as seven songs from seven different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5740 Tu kaun si badli mein mere chaand hai aa jaa Khandaan(1942) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see that four movies (out of 7) whose songs were covered in the blog ten years ago have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with three movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (6 April 2022).

“Chhoti Bhaabhi”(1950) is one of the three movies eligible for BTYC today.

“Chhoti Bhaabhi”(1950) was directed by Shanti Kumar for Filmkar Limited, Bombay. The movie had Nargis, Karan Diwan, Shyam, Kuldip aka Kuldip Kaur, Gulab, Shyaama, Suraiyya chaudhry, Yakub, I.S.Johar, Baby Tabassum, Gyani, Jugnu, G.Sarang, Khushdil etc in it.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song on several female dancers. We can see Nargis, Shyam and GopeYakoob seated in the front row among the housefull audience.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the songs of “Chhoti Bhaabhi”(1950) are covered in the blog. “Chhoti Bhaabhi”(1950) thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 38
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 29 march 2012) was a lean day for the blog. This date saw only two songs from two different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5702 Dil mein shama jalaake tere intezaar ki Sabak(1950) & songs covered so far out of 10
5703 Muhabbat ka naghma zubaan par na aata Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya (1963) Movie YIPPEED by now

It can be seen that one of the two movies whose songs were covered on 29 march 2012 has since been YIPPEED.

That leaves us with only one movie which is eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today ten years later on 29 march 2022.

This movie is “Sabak”(1950).

“Sabak”(1950) was produced and directed by M Sadiq for Sadiq Productions, Bombay. The movie had Munawar Sultana,Jagirdar,Karan Dewan,Om Prakash,Kumar, Cuckoo, Jilloo Maa, Shyama etc in it.

“Sabak”(1950) had ten songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the eighth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Surinder Kaur. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Qureshi.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on the leading lady of th movie viz Munawwar Sultana. I request our knowledgeable readers to help throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchanda.

When one looks at the songs of Hindi movies, there are lots and lots of songs of the genre of feelings of heart” and “expression of love”. Going by the statistics of the blog, 46 % songs are “feelings of heart” and 25 % of all Hindi movie songs are “expression of love”.

An interesting and spicy version of the above mentioned genre of songs is “nok jhonk” songs or. They may be fewer in number, but they are great fun songs to listen to.

Another variation of such songs is “roothhna-manaana” aka “sulking-appeasing” song.

The blog so far has 61 “nok jhonk” songs that often take place between the lovers, who are often spouses. I had done some research in these songs and I had come to the conclusion that all the roothhna (on the past of the lady) lasts for 2 minutes and 30 seconds in a 3 minutes song, and the lady then relents in the slog overs of the match and then all is well. 🙂

Here is another “nok jhonk”cum “sulking appeasing” song. This song is from “Guru Dakshina”(1950).

“Guru Dakshina”(1950) was produced by Rajasthan Studios, Bombay. This is all the detail that is mentioned about this movie in HFGK.

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

This third song from the movie is sung by Trilok Kapoor (singer) and Prempal. Prempal is a female singer unlike what the name suggests. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist according to the uploader (Mr Girdharilal Vishwakarma, a renowned collector of records). Music is composed by Pt Lachchiram.

This is an interesting song. after the roothna-manaana on the part of the lady, it is the gentleman that sulks, and then quicky gets appeased just in the nick of time as the record time is coming to an end. 🙂


Song-Baalam se munh mod maad ke (Guru Dakshina)(1950) Singers-Trilok Kapoor, Prempal, Lyrics-Sarshar Sailaani, MD-Pt Lachchiram
Both

Lyrics

O baalam se mukh mod maad ke
prem ka naata tod taad ke
gehne kapde chhod chhaad ke
kaahe roothh chali ho gori
kaahe roothh chali
main chali shahar ke thhaane
rapat likhaane
mulzim ko saza dilaane

ho kaisa mulzim
ik Rajput ka bachccha
baat ka kachcha
jo kare mera dil chori
dikhlaaye seena jori
ab bhanwra ban ke kali kali ka
ghoome gali gali

o gori kaahe roothh chali

o o
kisne bhar diye tere kaan
kaun hai aisa beimaan
naam uska batlaao gori
yoonhi kaam na khaa
kyun batlaaun
kyun batlaaun ke nandu naai
usko batlaawe harjaai
sach kehta hai ?? baniya
tera baalam bada ??
teri aankh mein dhool daal ke
ghoome gali gali

o gori kaahe roothh chali

o rajput ki bachchi
kaan ki kachchi
?? se mera mair puraana
nandu ko mera karz chukaana
isi liye karte hain donon
baaten bhali buri
o gori kaahe roothh chali
chhod bhi do taqraar ki baaten
aao karen kuchh pyaar ki baaten
sun le chaukidaar ki baaten
aadhi aadhi raat gaye tu
ghoome gali gali

chaukidaar se mera pehra
gaaon ka numberdaar jo thhehra
chaukidaar ki dekh bhaal ko
ghoomoon gali gali
ho gori kaahe roothh chali
sach kehta hai
teri qasam main sach kehta hoon
pooch ?? jaaye
jo aur ko chaahoon
aao karen phir pyaar ki baaten
chhod ke sab taqraar ki baaten

uhoon
roz roz tu kare ladaai
roz kare meri ruswaai
ab main roothh chala
tumse roothhe meri bala
sach kehti hai
teri qasam main sach kehti hoon
tujhse mil ke khush rehti hoon

aao karen phir pyaar ki baaten
chhod ke sab taqraar ki baaten
aao karen phir pyaar ki baaten
chhod ke sab taqraar ki baaten

Today 13th March 2022 is the eighty-nineth birthday of Singer Sulochana Kadam (DoB 13th March’1933) who later became Sulochana Chavan.

I think she has sung many songs during the ‘golden period’ of HFM, but the total number of songs sung by her is yet to be determined. However, the blog so far has sixty-three songs containing her voice.

She had also sung many famous and popular ‘laavanis’ in Marathi Film Music and that is why she is popularly known as the ‘Laavni-samradhni’ in Marathi music.

Today on her birthday I am presenting a song from the movie “Baabuji-1950” which is lying with us since long. Incidentally I had presented a song from the same movie on her birthday last year in ‘2021’.

“Baabuji” or ‘Babooji’ was directed by Bhagwan for ‘Uday Productions, Bombay’.

It had Bhagwan, Leela Gupte, Baburao, Usha Shukla, Vasant Rao, Azeem, Jani, Mirajkar, Zafar, Vitthalrao, Dhondu, Anmanta, Swami and others.

This movie had nine songs written by Ehsaan Rizvi and composed by music director P. Ramakant (i.e., C. Ramchandra ji).

HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950) lists the songs of this movie as given below; (in order of their appearing on this movie (Babooji-1950) page in HFGK)

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On

09 Gorey gorey mukh se jo ghoonghat hataawjo Anna Saheb

So far, four songs from this movie “Babuji-1950” have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the fifth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Let us hope that we get all the songs from this movie here on the blog as early as possible. 😊

Let us now listen to today’s lovely song and wish a very happy birthday to Sulochana Kadam and our wishes for her healthy and peaceful life ahead.


Song-Kyun pareshaan huye (Babuji)(1950) Singer-Sulochana Kadam, Lyrics-Ehsan Rizvi, MD-P Ramakant (C Ramchandra)

Lyrics

Kyun pareshaan huye
Kyun pareshaan huye ae
Hamne dekha jo tumhe
Kyun pareshaan huye ae
Man ke bhi ee
Meet bane ae
Dil ke bhi mehmaan huye
Ae ji dil ke bhi mehmaan huye
Kyun pareshaan huye
Hamne dekha jo tumhe
Kyun pareshaan huye

Ik nazar dekh liya
Aa aa aa aa aa
Ik nazar dekh liya
Ismein kya meri khataa aa aa
Kuchh bigaada to nahin
Apna hi nuksaan kiya
Apna dil tumko diya
Apna dil tumko diya
Dil ke tum armaan huye
Ae ji dil ke tum armaan huye
Kyun pareshaan huye
Hamne dekha jo tumhe
Kyun pareshaan huye

Munh se kuchh kehte nahin
ee ee ee ee ee
Munh se kuchh kehte nahin
Dil mein jo kar jaate ho
Jaane kya baat hai
Reh reh ke jo yaad aate ho
Din bhi kuchh aise nahin
Din bhi kuchh aise nahin
Beete hain pehchaan huye
Ae ji beete hain pehchaan huye
Kyun pareshaan huye ae
Hamne dekha jo tumhe
Kyun pareshaan huye

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Nirdosh-1950.

There were 4 films with the same title – Nirdosh-1941, Nirdosh-1950, Nirdosh-1973 and Nirdosh-2018. The first film Nirdosh-1941 had singer Mukesh as Hero, opposite Nalini Jaywant and he sang his first film song on the screen. Film Nirdosh- 1950 was a film made by Filmistan Ltd.,Bombay and it was directed by Najmul Hasan Naqvi or simply Najam Naqvi. This shortening of his name had a history behind it.

Initially, when Najam came into the film line, he joined Bombay Talkies as an assistant doing odd jobs. However, soon ,looking at his interests, he was kept as a Continuity man in the direction department. In 1935, a handsome young man joined Bombay Talkies and the first film of Bombay Talkies-” Jawani ki Hawa”-1935 was made with Devika Rani and this young man-Najmul Hasan as the lead pair. The film was a Hit film. During the making of this film, he and Devika Rani fell in love. While their second film-” Jeevan Naiya”-1936 was on the floor, the Love Birds eloped to Calcutta. There was great commotion in the studio and everyone talked about it. The prestige of Bombay Talkies was at stake as the wife of the owner had run away with her lover.Eventually, Devika Rani was persuaded to return to Bombay. Najmul Hasan dared not come back. He continued in Calcutta, did some films and a roaring love affair with actress Kajjan, before migrating to Lahore.

The whole episode of elopement had become a matter of embarrassment for the continuity man; working in the same studio. His name too was Najmul Hasan. Because of the same name, this innocent chap -who had nothing to do with the elopement drama- had to suffer staring eyes and hush hush whisperings within the studio and the film circle of Calcutta !

He was Najmul Hasan Naqvi, born on 11-4-1913 at Moradabad-UP. He was working in Bombay Talkies doing odd jobs-continuity man and even as an actor in Achhut kanya-36. He was a very hardworking person. After this episode he changed his name to a shorter edition- Najam Naqvi.

He worked in the Direction department and his first film as an independent Director was PUNARMILAN-1940. He went on directing films like Raja Rani-42, Tasveer-43, Naya Tarana-43, Panna-44, Prithwiraj Sanyogita-46, Nateeja-47, Parayee Aag-48, Actress-48, Nirdosh-50, Rangili-52 and last film- Samrat-54.

In 1955, Najam Naqvi migrated to Pakistan and directed 7 films- Kunwari Bewa-56, Naghma e dil-59, Dil e nadaan-60, Qaidi-62, Ek manzil do rahein-62, Ek tera sahara-63 and lastly Payal Ki Jhankaar-66. Najam Naqvi died on 26-1-82 at Lahore. Due to the same name, many sites still mix up the filmography of these two artistes.

The cast of the film Nirdosh-1950 was Shyam, Rehana, Kuldeep Kaur, Om Prakash, K N Singh, Mukri and others. 3 Lyricists wrote the 10 songs of the film. They were S H Bihari, Asad Bhopali and RMA Khan. The Music Director was Shyam Sunder-one of my favourite MDs. He is one of the very few old time composers who composed some songs which will never fade away. He was not very prolific- just 20 films in a career of 10 years, but some of his songs are evergreen. he showed his talent right from his first film “Nai Kahani”-1943, by composing the beautiful song ” Neend hamari khwab tumhare”, sung so nicely by G M Durrani and sung on screen by the handsome B. Nandrekar.

To be famous and to shine in this world, mere Talent is not enough. You must also have Lady Luck with you. While it is generally true,it is more true in the case of our Film Industry.

It is said that LAXMI and SARASWATI do not stay together. Laxmi is the Goddess for Wealth and Saraswati stands for Arts,music and Wisdom. We have seen several examples of Actors,singers,Directors and composers,where,despite being talented,the person did not shine in life and had to remain unhonoured and unrecognised. But we have also seen cases where genuinely talented people in various fields do get honoured,recognised and become wealthy too.

So,what is the factor that binds Laxmi and Saraswati together ? It is ,Undoubtedly,LUCK ! Without having Luck,no one can get name,fame and wealth,however talented he may be.

But,what about those talented people who had almost everything coming their way,name,fame and wealth too,but just because of their own egos,bad tempers and bad habits,they lost everything and either died soon or spent their last days in neglect and sorrow ?

Yes,there are such examples too in the Film Industry. One such glaring example is that of Music Director SHYAM SUNDER. ( Another notable example is that of SAJJAD HUSAIN). Songs composed by Shyamsunder are one of my most favourite ones. His songs from Nai kahani,Bazar,Lahore and Village girl are to be remembered eternally.Bazar -49 song, ” Saajan ki galiyan ” is Lata’s No. 1 favourite song( so is mine ! ). The 6 songs of Noorjehan in Village Girl-45 are simply matchless.

Shyamsunder himself was a highly respected and preferred composer for singers and producers. He had the capacity to scale heights much higher than other composers of his time. But…Alas ! The habit of drinking and talking rubbish when drunk destroyed his career. Here is an anecdote of how much respected and remembered he was by the Ace singers like Noorjehan and Lata Mangeshkar…

Thirty five years after the partition and two wars between India and Pakistan; in the year 1982 the melody queen, Malika-e-Taranum Noorjehan visited India. It was certainly a grand occasion for millions of music lovers of the Indian sub-continent.

In her honour and to facilitate nostalgic music lovers, an impressive show was organised in Shanmukhanand Hall, Bombay which was attended by a large number of luminaries of Indian cinema. Notable amongst them were- Anil Biswas, Naushad, the maestro music composers and matinee idols- Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, Dilip Kumar & nightingale of India Lata Mangeshkar to name a few.

Noorjehan came to the dais with a thunderous applause from the jam-packed auditorium and after a brief speech; as expected, she sang her most popular melody- ‘Awaaz de kahan hai, duniya meri jawan hei’ she recorded in India for film ‘Anmol Ghadi’ -Music was composed by Naushad.

Thereafter, it was Lata to sing, who found herself in a very difficult situation owing to a completely charged atmosphere all around the auditorium. She kept everyone guessing about the selection of her song.

Lata came out with one of her endearing melodies- ‘Saajan ki galian chhod chaley, dil roya aansoo beh na sakey’ from the film ‘Bazaar’ music for which was composed by Shyam Sunder. The applause was beyond imagination. The memory of the completely forgotten genius music director Shyam Sunder came alive, when in her next round Noorjehan sang– ‘Baithee hun teri yaad ka ley karkey sahara’ another immortal melody from film- ‘Village Girl’, music for which was composed by none other than Shyam Sunder.

The audience was indeed spellbound. Every one thought as to why she chose a completely forgotten Indian melody instead of a large number of songs she recorded in Pakistan after migrating from her performing place of origin- Bombay . Perhaps, it was in view of the fact that the singer and the composer of the film ‘Village Girl’ were from Punjab .

The momentous event continued with lots of nostalgic and tearful exchanges and it became a history in the annals of pre and post partition Indian art, culture, music and all such related aspects of humane

Why such a legendary music- composer has completely been forgotten,who composed music for some of the classics of his time, such as ‘Village Girl’- 1945, ‘Devkanya’ 1946, ‘Actress’ and ‘Ek Roz-1947, ‘Bazaar’ and ‘Lahore’- 1949, ‘Dholak’, ‘Kale Badal and Alif Laila’ -1951 just to name a few.

In 1943, he composed music for the film ‘Nai Kahani’. An alluring song of G.M. Durani and others–‘Neend hamari khwab tumhare, kitne meethe kitne pyare’ which became an instant hit. Even today after a gap of more than seventy years, the melody richly deserves an eloquent place in the list of popular melodies of yesteryears.

In his next film ‘Village Girl’ -1945, Shyam Sunder came with flying colours, wherein Noorjehan sang some of her fabulous melodies viz–‘Baithi hoon teri yaad mein ley karkey sahara’, ‘Kis tarah bhulega dil’ & ‘Sajan pardesi, balam pardesi’. In these vital numbers, the feelings immersed in the lyrics -written by Wali Saheb- she was in her complete command. The singer did not merely sing the words inscribed in the lyrics, but the depth of feelings. The class of accompanying instrumentation and the matching orchestration was superb and the genius of the composer was distinctively visible.

It is needless to reiterate that as and when a list of immortal melodies of previous century of Indian sub-continent in general and Noorjehan in particular will be drawn; these numbers will invariably find a prime place, music for which was composed by a totally forgotten genius called- Shyam Sunder.

For Shyam Sunder, after the exit of Noorjehan from Indian film music, there came the film ‘Actress’ in the year 1948, wherein Mohammad Rafi gave his initial introduction to the music world by singing – ‘Hum apne dil ka fasana unhe suna na sakey’ . This proved to be Rafi’s initial introduction. .

The music-creating journey of Shyam Sunder can be matched with another maestro called Sajjad Husain, who also composed music for just 14 films, but composed some of the finest melodies of his era.

Both the masters were highly perfectionists; but ill-tempered and uncompromising. Shyam Sunder, additionally in view of his addiction to liquor and excessive drinking, occasionally uttered abusive language and consequently used to lose control over his head and heart. During the making of the film ‘ Lahore ’, he had some abusive interaction with Lata Mangeshkar; as such, they were not on talking terms for a considerable time.

In the year 1952, when the film- ‘Alif Laila’ was in making, Shyam Sunder died in the recording studio, owing to excessive drinking and consequent heart attack; the music thereby was completed by his assistant- Madan Mohan. Due to his spat with Lata,she had stopped singing for him,but on his request she sang a song in his last film, Alif Laila-1953. She knew his calibre as a composer !

Shyamsunder was born in Multan (now in Pakistan). He was an expert Violin player and used to play in Jhande Khan’s orchestra in the early stage of his career. He started with Punjabi films from 1939. He gave a break to Mohd. Rafi in Punjabi film ‘Gul Baloch’. Nai kahani-41 was the beginning of his bright career and village girl-45,Lahore-49 and Bazar-49 were his pinnacle. He composed 187 songs in 20 films.

Shyamsundar died on 15-7-1952.

Some years back, Lata Mangeshkar had been interviewed on rediffmail.com, on 7-1-2011, in which she gave some short memory clips of her famous MDs. About Shyamsunder, she had this to say……

” During the period of 1946-1947, I was an employee of Master Vinayak.

One day he summoned me to his house in Dadar and told me that Shyam Sudner had come and wants to hear you sing. I complied and sang a Bandish. There was no reaction on Shyam Sunder’s face. Days passed by. Master Vinayak met an untimely end. I was searching for work.

Then one day, Shyam Sunder called for me.

I have sung many melodious songs for Shyam Sunder. I remember a qawaali from the film Chaar Din. The singers included Rafi, Shivdayal Batish, Rajkumari, Hamida, Johrabai and Iqbal. This qawaali, Haseenon ki adaein bhi by Shyam Sunder was very challenging and consisted of difficult taans.

Our rehearsal was going on. I was the focus of his attention. He was keen to know how I perform on a song which had a Punjabi style. I sang all the taans much to the delight of Shyam Sunder. He told everyone, “This is how to sing a song in Punjabi style.”

Shyam Sunder was a jovial person. Due to some misunderstandings, I was not singing for him for a period of time.

One day, I received a message from him. He had composed a song especially for me. The song Tujhko Bhulana Mere Basme Nahi from the film Alif Laila was the last song that I sang for him. He met a sad, untimely death. The song from his film Bazaar-1949 ” Sajan ki galiyan” is my favourite.”

Today’s song is also a typical Shyam Sunder song, sung by Shamshad Begum. This is the third song from this film here.


Song-Gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke (Nirdosh)(1950) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-Shyam Sundar

Lyrics

na aaye thhe to zara itminaan thha dil ko
wo aa ke chal diye

gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke
gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
judai mein rone ka saamaan karke

jaate jaate saath apne ae
dil mera lete gaye
dard wo mujhko tadapne ke liye dete gaye ae ae
mila ye humen unse pehchaan karke
mila ye humen unse pehchaan karke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke
gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke

chaar din ki chaandni thhi ee
phir andheri raat hai ae
phir wahi tanhaaiyaan hain
aur gham ka saath hai
bada dukh hua unko mehmaan karke
bada dukh hua unko mehmaan karke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke
gaye wo mere dil ko veeraan kar ke
judaai mein rone ka saamaan karke

Today 28th December’2021 is the fifty-third remembrance anniversary of music director Husnlal (born 1918 as per Wikipedia – death 28th December’1968) of the famous music duo of the golden age of Hindi Film Music – Husnlal Bhagatram.

On this occasion here is a song from the ‘1950’ movie ‘Apni Chhaaya’. This movie had ten songs – two songs were composed by Music Director Hanuman Prasad. And the rest eight songs were composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram.

‘Apni Chhaya-1950’ was directed by P.L. Santoshi for ‘Chitralaya Limited, Bombay’.

It had Sulochana Chatterjee, Balwant Singh, Radhakishan, Mumtaz Ali, Sajjan, Tiwari, Ramsingh, Dulari, Mona, Neelam, Satyarani, Jawahar Kaul, Baba Raja, Narbada Shankar, Karadkar, Niranjan, Madan Singh, Kukku and others.

The list of the ten songs this movie had is as given below (as mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950).
All the ten songs in this movie were written by P.L. Santoshi.

* Today’s song is the song five mentioned above. Though HFGK and link titles mention this track as ‘dukhiyaa ke dukh hare hain’ , I think this needs to be corrected as ‘duniya ke dukh hare hain tumne’.

(Also, the song number three is mentioned in HFGK as ‘ae ji zindagi hai roshan’ but these words do not appear in the song ‘khushi ki ye ghadiyaan mubaarak mubaarak’. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this song please.)

Let us now listen to the today’s song and pay our tributes to music director Husnlal on his remembrance anniversary today. Today’s song is sung by Lalita Dewoolkar, and lyrics are by P.L. Santoshi.

As mentioned above music for the today’s song is composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram.

Today’s song is from the film Hanste Rehna-1950. The film was made by Rajan Pictures, Bombay. It was directed by Mohammed Hussain, about whom no information is available from any source, except for his Filmography. As per HFGK, it seems, he directed 39 films, most of which were B and C grade action films. In the 60’s decade he directed some films featuring Dara Singh. His first film was Sher E Bangal-1947 and his last film was Mandir Masjid-1977. Some well known films he directed were Sipah Salar-56, Aji bas shukriya-58, Rooplekha-49 and 62, Shikar-63, CID 909-67 Faulad-63 and Aaya Toofan-64 etc etc. He was born on 25-2-1918 in Lucknow.

The film had music by Wadhva. His only other film was Dushmani-50, as Ramnath Wadhva. The film lyrics were by Faruk Kaiser and Indivar. Faruk Kaiser (6 June 1918 – 10 November 1987) was an Urdu poet and a renowned lyricist , making a significant contribution to the success of many Bollywood films. He was one of the dominating forces of music in Indian Cinema during the 1950s through the 1980s. He contributed to more than 115 movies and 390 songs.

Faruk Kaiser was born in 1918 into a jeweller’s family. He was to be the second eldest of 12 children and was educated in Bombay (present day Mumbai). Faruk had an enquiring mind and, even as a child, exhibited a keen interest in reading- books and newspapers – and later in the wireless. Faruk’s mother died when he was 18; shortly after that he left his family home and found lodgings in a friend’s tailoring premises. Here, he devoted his time to further learning: immersing himself in poetry, literature, educational books, newspapers, magazines, and almost anything available in print – whilst also learning languages besides his native Urdu.

Faruk’s love for poetry and his friendship with neighbour Kamran Khan (father of Farah Khan and Sajid Khan) were instrumental in his developing an enthusiasm for the creative works of Hindi Cinema. While Kamran Khan produced and acted in films, Faruk was introduced into the Bollywood scene as an assistant director, whose expertise was frequently sought to modify dialogues and revamp scenes. He went on to direct several movies until he found his niche as a lyricist.

Among his many colleagues in the film industry, Faruk was a great friend of actor Kamal Mohan, who was the father of six sons and one daughter. Kamal Mohan proposed his daughter Aisha’s hand in marriage to his dear friend and confidant Faruk- who took an immediate liking for her. During their courtship, he penned the lyrics of Sari Sari Raat Teri Yaad Sataye for the movie Aji Bas Shukriya (1958) while she was stricken with tuberculosis and hospitalised in Bombay for a year. Soon after Aisha’s discharge from hospital in 1959, they married and moved to Bandra. Faruk’s career had developed and his work took him all over India; during his many travels he wrote diligently to his wife and soulmate. It was during his travels, on a shoot in 1963, that he wrote the song Oee Ma Oee Ma Yeh Kya Ho Gaya for the movie Parasmani (1963)

Faruk and Aisha had three children- one son, Shakil (1960) and two daughters – Bilkis Whelan (1962 -2003) and Tabassum (1963-1983).(Thanks to wiki)

The film was made on the famous novel ” Comedy of Errors” by William Shakespear. This story is so interesting that the story and its variations involving Mistaken Identity is used in Hindi as well as regional films, since the beginning of Talkie films. The first such film was Awara Shehzada-33. Later on, some of the well known films made on this story in Hindi are-

Chacha Chaudhari-53

Do dooni chaar-68

Angoor-82

Cirkus-forthcoming in 2022

Some films in other languages-

Bhranti Bilas-Bangla-63

Ulta palta-kannada-97

Ulta Palta-Telugu-98

Double di trouble-2014.

These films used the same theme, but there are many more films in Hindi and other languages, in which the theme has some changes, but centrally it is “Mistaken Identity” only. Films like Ram aur Shyam, Seeta aur Geeta and Chaalbaaz were some films in this category.

Today’s song is sung by Leela Mehta. Leela is a name in Hindi films, which has several Same Name artistes-just like the name Nalini. In case of Nalini these were the artistes-

In Hindi films, as many as 12 NALINIs acted/ sang in films at slightly different times. Add to this list, the name of a Male actor ‘ Nalini Ranjan Roy ‘, who, thankfully, acceded to the suggestion to change his name to ‘Kanu’ Roy. ( It is another matter that even this name clashed with another artiste, Kanu Roy, who was MD, in the same period…causing serious ” Same Name Confusion”. ) The different NALINIs were…

Nalini Tarkhud…..many films

Nalini Jayawant…many films

Baby Nalini…Mera ladka-43

Nalini Nagpurkar…Krishnarjun yuddha-34, Chacha Chaudhari-53

Nalini Chonkar… many films

Nalini Borkar…singer

Nalini Dhere… Nagad Narayan-43

Nalini Gupte…Ankh ki sharm-43

Nalini Mulgaonkar…Didi-48, nakli Baap-49

Nalini Rao…Talash-43

Nalini Saraf (later Seema Deo)… Anand-70

Nalini korgaonkar… singer

Additionally, there were actresses called SuNALINI and MriNALINI too.

These Nalinis did not cause any Same name Confusion, because, being Marathi artistes, they wrote their names with Surnames, so their names remained different always.

Similarly, there were many Leelas, commonly found in HFGK-

Leela Sawant-A/s

Leela Gupte-A

Leela Desai-A/S

Leela Mishra-A

Leela Chitnis-A/S

Leela Mehta-A

Leela Naidu-A and

Leela Chandragiri A/S. There may be some more Leelas, found occasionally.

Like Nalinis, these Leelas (except two-Leela Desai and Leela Chandragiri) did not cause Same Name Confusion as their names were used with surnames.

Today’s singer Leela Mehta was an actress in Gujarati and Marathi films and stage dramas, but she acted in only one Hindi film. She sang 17 songs in 9 films. Her today’s song is her last song in Hindi films.

Daughter of Kanhaiyalal Mehta and Indumati, Leela was born on 10-12-1935 at Borivali in Bombay. She was the elder of the two sisters. Due to loss in business, her family shifted first to Ahmedabad and later to Baroda, where they settled. Leela studied in Marathi medium school- New Era Vidyalaya in Baroda. Leela participated in all functions of the school and acted in dramas, much to the annoyance of their social circle. She developed interest in singing after listening to songs by Khursheed and Kananbala. She started learning music despite the resistance from home and others in their society.

V.M.Vyas, the famous Director and a family friend knew about her interest and offered her the main role in the film Ranak Devi-46. She was just 11 year old and did not suit the role, but she was given another role in it. Kokila Balsara aka Nirupa Roy too acted in it as a Debut film.

Due to her father’s death, the family shifted to Bombay and Leela took the responsibility of being the bread earner by acting and singing in dramas and Radio plays. Meanwhile she learnt further music from Prof. Surendra Rao. She started acting and singing in Gujarati films. Ranjit Movietone offered her a big role in the film Gunsundari-48, but since the role needed her to put on a Sleeveless Blouse, she refused that role. Finally, it went to Dulari. She, however, sang songs in that film and they became quite popular in Gujarat.

Leela Mehta had grown up in a Marathi atmosphere and also was educated in Marathi Medium, so her Marathi was very good. She was invited to work in Marathi dramas. She did roles in famous and popular Marathi dramas and also sang songs. From 1950 onwards, she started acting in Gujarati dramas. Meanwhile she used to sing in Hindi films occasionally. In the early 50s, she made very successful foreign trips with her troupe, to do Gujarati dramas and singing concerts.

In Spite of being successful and acting and singing in Marathi, Hindi and Gujarati films and dramas, her father did not see even one show of hers. This pained her till end. Leela stayed in a Bungalow in Versova in Bombay. Once it was rumoured that there was a Ghost in it, she immediately left that house and shifted to Dadar. Inadvertently, she forgot to inform the industry about her change of address, and this diminished her demand drastically.

Her mother died in 1972. In 1982, she toured the USA. In 1985, the Marathi Natya Parishad honoured her with a cash award. Till 1992, she acted in Marathi and Gujarati TV serials. In all, Leela acted in 300 Gujarati/Marathi dramas, films and serials. Leela was bedridden and unable to speak also.Her house was demolished. She was under the care of a close relative, Nitin Dahisariya. Finally, the news came that Leela Mehta expired in September 2019.

Leela Mehta acted in only one Hindi film- Shri Ram Avatar-50. She sang 17 songs in 9 Hindi films, including 2 Unreleased films.
Her Films are Nai Kahani-43 ( 2 songs), Gaurav-47 (1), Namak-47 (1), Pehli Pehchan-47 (2), Gunsundari-48(2), Satyawan Savitri-48..No information, Chocolate-50..No information, Shri Ram Avatar-50 (4) and Hanste Rehna-50 (1). Her unreleased films were, Apradh-48 (3) and Bidhata-48 (1).

Lyrics

Main to chanda ke
Main to chanda ke sang kheloon aankh michauli
kheloon aankh michauli
Main to chanda ke

chanda ki nazron se khud ko bachaa ke
baadal ke tukde mein chhip jaaun jaa ke
chanda ki nazron se khud ko bachaa ke
baadal ke tukde mein chhip jaaun jaa ke
dhoondhe sitaaron ki toli
main to chanda ke sang
dhoondhe sitaaron ki toli
main to chanda ke sang
kheloon aankh michauli
main to chanda ke
Main to chanda ke sang kheloon aankh michauli
kheloon aankh michauli
Main to chanda ke

duniya hai meri sabse niraali
duniya hai meri sabse niraali
chaand aur sitaaron ki main rehne waali
chaand aur sitaaron ki main rehne waali
ye hai mere humjoli
ho main to chanda ke sang
kheloon aankh michauli
Main to chanda ke
Main to chanda ke sang kheloon aankh michauli
kheloon aankh michauli
Main to chanda ke

khel chukoon main khel apne nyaare
chanda hanse aur muskaayen taare
khel chukoon main khel apne nyaare
chanda hanse aur muskaayen taare
baaten karoon aisi bholi
main to chanda ke sang
baaten karoon aisi bholi
main to chanda ke sang
kheloon aankh michauli
Main to chanda ke
Main to chanda ke sang kheloon aankh michauli
kheloon aankh michauli
Main to chanda ke
