“Aanbaan”(1956) was produced and directed by D D Kashyap for Kashyap Productions, Bombay. This costi=ume drama movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Usha Kiran, Ajit, Mahipal, Pran, Ulhas, Niranjan Sharma, Manmohan Krishna, Baij Sharma, Parvati devi, Maya devi, Fazal, Shree Bhagwan, Nazeer etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Aanbaan”(1956) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyicist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of this song is available. This movie had two female singers. Asha Bhonsle had sung four songs whereas Lata Mangeshkar has sung three. So it is difficult to guess who sang for which actress. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Mere dil mein tum chhupe ho (Aan Baan)(1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

mere dil mein tum chhupe ho
mere dil mein tum chhupe ho
dil mein aa kar dekh lo o

muhabbat ka asar ho jaayegaa

mere dil mein tum chhupe ho
dil mein aa kar dekh lo o
mere dil mein tum

Blog Day :

4413 Post No. : 15812

Today’s song is from film Patrani-1956. It was a Prakash Pictures’ film, produced by Shankarbhai Bhatt-the elder brother and directed by Vijay Bhatt, the younger brother. The music was by Shankar-Jaikishen (S-J). Songs were written by Shailendra (9) and Hasrat Jaipuri (1).

In my last post, I had talked about songs from the 50’s decade, especially songs from Shankar-Jaikishen films of this decade. I was determined to discuss such songs from Shankar-Jaikishen in the 50’s, so I started scanning each of their films made in the 50s. From 1951 to 1960, Shankar-Jaikishen gave music in a total of 41 films. First, I made a list and then revised it to an alphabetical list. That way, it would be easier for me to check songs from every film, from the Blog’s ” List of songs-moviewise”. Before starting, I went through the list once again and my heart sank. Looking at the titles of the films, I was afraid that most films must have already been ‘ Yippied ‘.

When I sat at the Laptop and started going through the movie titles, my worst fears seemed to get confirmed. When I finished scanning all the 41 films, I found that as many as 40 films out of the 41 total films had been Yippied, with all their songs covered. Only 2 songs from the film Patrani-56 miraculously remained uncovered yet. I felt like ‘ खोदा पहाड और निकला चूहा ‘. At this point , I remembered that in Nov-Dec-2015, I had myself done a series ” Songs of Shankar-Jaikishen from the 50’s “, in this Blog. In this series, I think, I must have discussed some 15 songs from 15 such films. Film Patrani-56 song was also one of that series, I remember.

Today’s song is from the film Patrani-56, and Shankar- Jaikishan were the Music Directors. Yesteryear composer Lallubhai Nayak was their assistant in this film. Lallubhai was the First music Director of Prakash Pictures since 1934. He gave a break to Rajkumari in 1934. He was a paid composer with Prakash in the 30s. Later he was first replaced by Shankar Rao Vyas and then by Naushad. After 1948, Lallubhai was living an anonymous life. Shankar Jaikishan brought him again in the industry with Patrani-56, to help him financially.

Patrani-56 was probably the First film of Shankar Jaikishan after they fought back and gained control over their music compositions in Raj Kapoor movies where Raj Kapoor used to exercise control over their compositions till then.

The film is set in Gujarat in the 11th century. it was based on a novel by Kanhaiyalal Munshi. The producers took plenty of cinematic liberties with the novel. PATRANI-1956 was supposed to be a Historical film,but there is no base for its story in real History. As I said once,Historical movies in India are most of the times ’Distortical’ movies, either being imaginary or bent for cinematic liberty.

A Prakash picture’s film (actually they were known for Mythological films), it was directed by Vijay Bhatt,its owner himself. The story,Dialogues and Screenplay was by R.S.Chaudhary. The music was by Shankar-Jaikishen and their assistant in this film was Lallubhai Naik, who played Sarod in this film.

The story of Patrani -56 was…..

King Karnadev Solanki,king of Gujrat(Pradeep Kumar) had many queens but no issues. The Rajmata(Durga Khote) insisted that he marry another girl after ascertaining astrologically her capability to give children.

The king had seen one princess in Somnath temple once and wanted to marry only her.But he does not know who she is. Actually she is princess Mrinal(Vyjayanti Mala) daughter of King Jai keshi(Ramesh Sinha) ofKarnatak.She was on a Teerth yatra when she saw Karnadev. She also wanted to only marry him,but did not know who he was.

Munjal Mehta (David),Mahamantri of Karndev goes on a mission and soon finds out Mrinal.She is beautiful,but her skin becomes black in the sunlight.Munjal knows Karndev’s dislike of black.mrinal is astrologically also fit.He tells her and shows the sketch of Karandev,after which she is happily ready to marry him.

They all travel to Gujarat, but during travel Mrinal’s skin becomes black.During marriage,there is a veil,but after marriage Karndev sees that she is black and rejects her.

She is good natured and becomes Raj mata’s pet. When the King falls sick, Mrinal serves him very well and slowly the King realises that outer skin colour does not make a person good or bad. He accepts her as she is and all’s well that ends well.

The cast of the film included Vaijayanti mala, Pradeep kumar, Omprakash, Shashikala, Praveen Paul, Sheela Vaz, Helen, David, Jeevan and many others.Actress Praveen Paul was born in 1930 in Punjab. She entered films in 1953, with the film Naulakha Haar-53. She did 128 films.Her last film was Sawerey wali gaadi-86. After her first marriage ended, she got involved with actor K.N.Singh. K.N.Singh was married and never acknowledged Praveen. They were involved with each other for 25 years. From this relationship , they had a son named “Vibhu”. He also went by the name’s “Vibhu Paul”,”Vibhu Singh”. He is now known as “Vibhushan Singh Paul” and is based in Toronto, Ontario,Canada. He is an owner operator of a Transport company. He has a daughter named Sarah Faria who is married to Cyrus Faria. K.N.Singh never publicly accepted Vibhushan as his son. (Thanks to IMDB).

This film’s Hero Pradeep Kumar was a fortunate actor. He was the first choice to play prince/king in numerous Hindi films. His talwar-cut moustache, broad shoulders, receding-into-his-temples coiffure, peaches-and-honey complexion, and regal bearing made him fit the role of an amorous aristocrat like a made-to-order crown.

Pradeep was the kind who could smoke a hookah with the same élan as while puffing State Express cigarettes when he played the modern lover.

Pradeep Kumar aka Sital Batabyal was born on 4 January 1925. Pradeep bided his time till he was 17 years old before he announced his decision to pursue an acting career. Despite his father’s disapproval, Pradeep began acting on stage. During one of his performances, renowned filmmaker Debaki Bose spotted him and cast him in a Bengali film, Alaknanda (1947).

Encouraged, Pradeep moved to Mumbai and found a job in the bustling Filmistan Studio. He brushed up on his Hindi and learnt Urdu in a bid to make an impression in his first Hindi film, Anand Math (1952). The film, set in the 18th century, had strong nationalistic overtones and co-starred Prithviraj Kapoor and Geeta Bali. The Vande Mataram number from this film became a cult success.

In the next two years, Pradeep’s career escalated to the top with two hugely successful musical hits — the Bina Rai-starrer Anarkali (1953) and the Vyjayanthimala-starrer Nagin (1954). While Anarkali revolved around the eternally popular legend of Mughal prince Salim’s passionate affair with a commoner Anarkali, Nagin was a reed-slim romance between two lovers belonging to rival snake-catching tribes.

The songs of both films (Nagin had as many as 12) had audiences transfixed. Pradeep’s lessons in fencing for Anarkali and his gamble of letting a python play on his wrist for Nagin paid off.

Pradeep’s regal demeanour won him legions of fans. He went on a signing spree (in 1956, he had 10 releases) and inked deals with V Shantaram (Subah Ka Tara) and Raj Kapoor (Jagte Raho).

All the top-notch heroines of the 1950s — Nimmi (Jayshree), Nargis (Adalat), Nutan (Heer), Meena Kumari (Bandhan) — were paired with Pradeep.

After Rajhath (1956), the actor tried desperately to make a hit pair with the beauteous Madhubala. They did as many as five other films together — Yahudi Ki Ladki (1957), Gateway Of India (1957), Police (1958), Mahlon Ke Khwaab (1960) and Passport (1961), but Pradeep’s efforts were in vain.

His films with lucky mascot Vyjayanthimala (including his home production Ek Jhalak) did not enjoy even a fraction of the success of Nagin. But his pairing with Bina Rai seemed to have stilled the wings of time. This teaming salvaged Pradeep’s career from the late-1950s dip, first with Ghunghat (1960) and more decisively with Taj Mahal (1963). Even a decade after Anarkali, Pradeep could evoke a regal aura while playing love-struck Mughal royalty. Roshan’s dulcet duet, Paon chhu lene do toh and Jo vaada kiya from Taj Mahal, like an unforgettable promise, continue to haunt radio listeners even today.

Pradeep’s career got a further fillip with Rajshri’s social, Aarti. Meena Kumari and Pradeep played lovers who bond together because of their common desire to serve the poor. But their love story comes under a cloud when a rich, unscrupulous doctor (played by the late Ashok Kumar) is irretrievably drawn towards Meena Kumari. Aarti’s success ensured that Pradeep and Meena worked unceasingly in a series of films. Pradeep once said, “Meena and I made a fine pair and worked very well together, but her husband did not like our friendship.”

He worked with Meena Kumari in seven films; Adil-E-Jahangir, Bandhan (1956 film), Chitralekha, Bahu Begum, Bheegi Raat, Aarti and Noorjehan; and with Mala Sinha in eight films; Naya Zamana, Hamlet, Baadshah, Detective (1958 movie), Fashion (1959 film), Ek Shola, Duniya Na Maane, and Mitti Mein Sona.

He did not get to act in lead roles with the newer heroines of the 1960s such as Sadhana, Saira Banu, Babita or Sharmila Tagore, though he did work with Asha Parekh in Ghoonghat and Meri Surat Teri Aankhen and with Waheeda Rehman in Raakhi (1963). In 1969, he moved to character roles with Sambandh and Mehboob Ki Mehndi, but did not have many visible roles till Jaanwar and Razia Sultan in 1983.

The first Meena-Pradeep film to release on the heels of Aarti was Kidar Sharma’s Chitralekha (1964). Pradeep played the hedonistic Samanta Beejgupta in this period film set in the Gupta period. Despite lavish production values, the stolid support of veteran Ashok Kumar and exquisite penmanship by Sharma and Sahir, the film collapsed at the box office. Kalidas’s love triangle Bheegi Raat, which featured the tried triangle of Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari and Pradeep once again, was an average success. But M Sadiq’s Muslim socials Bahu Begum (Ashok Kumar again) and Noorjehan, both released in the same year, spelt the death knell for the team.

Pradeep, who had not signed a single film with the new breed of successful heroines of the 1960s like Sadhana, Saira Banu and Sharmila Tagore, suddenly found himself without a rudder.

In 1969, Pradeep saw a glimpse of success once again with Sambandh, albeit in a character role. Ironically, Ajoy Biswas, the director of Sambandh, who had provided him with a short burst of fame, caused him a lot of heartburn too. Biswas had a short-lived and unhappy marriage with Pradeep Kumar’s actress daughter, Bina.

Pradeep’s princely persona and impeccable Urdu was relegated to the pages of history for the next decade and more. But the onscreen prince was destined to play an emperor in Kamal Amrohi’s Razia Sultan (1983). Pradeep Kumar acted in 144 Hindi films. He directed one film-Do dilon ki dastan-1966. He won the Kalakar Award-Lifetime Achievement Award (1999).

The semi-retired Pradeep played the emperor as only he could — forcefully. After all, he had played blue-blooded characters all his life. He lived a life removed from the spotlight for the next 18 years. His end was pathetic. Pradeep Kumar’s case is the saddest. He lay seriously ill in the ICU of a Calcutta nursing home, abandoned by his relatives. The hospital was not discharging him, unless the bills were paid. Luckily one Mr. Pradeep Kondaliya, an estate agent, recognised him, despite his grown beard. He paid the huge outstanding bill of the hospital and took Pradeep Kumar to his home, where he passed away after a few days,on 28-10-2001, at the age of 76 years.. He was cremated by his fan. Such is the film industry – cruel and ruthless, where the recognition lasts only till one is successful, and even close relatives desert you in bad times.

He is survived by his daughters Reena, Meena and Beena Banerjee who plays character roles in movies and TV serials including Uttaran, son Debiprasad and granddaughters Tanisha, Suparna, Riya and Hrishita. Beena Banerjee’s son Siddharth Banerjee worked as assistant director in Sajid Khan’s Housefull 2 (2012) and Himmatwala (2013).

(Ack: adapted from an article ” Ever the Royal” by Dinesh Raheja in Rediff.com dt 2-6-2003 and my notes, HFGK and muVyz. Thanks to all).

So, here is the song from the film Patrani-56, with music by Shankar-Jaikishen. It is sung by sisters Lata and Usha Mangeshkar with chorus. Enjoy….

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 52
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago on this day, viz on 8 august 2010, the blog clocked as many as seven songs !!

Here are the details:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Muhabbat cheez hai kyaa muhabbat kar ke dekhenge Ye Raat Phir Naa Aayegi-1966 All songs covered
Teri yaad naa dil se jaa saki Chaand Aur Suraj-1965 All songs covered
Taana der na taani tum Pyaar Kaa Saagar-1961 All songs covered
Ye waadaa karen jahaan bhi rahen Dil Bhi Tera Ham Bhi Tere-1960 All songs covered
Yaar chulbulaa hai Dil Deke Dekho-1959 All songs covered
Lo chalen ham behke qadam aaj khushi se Zimbo-1958 All songs covered
Chal diya dil mera tod ke Fifty Fifty-1956 05 songs posted

When I checked up on that day ten years ago, I realised that the day fell on a sunday. On week days I was posting six articles a day, and this holiday gave me additional time to post a whopping ONE song more. 🙂

The weekend is upon us now as well. Can I cover similar number of songs that I did ten years ago on the same days. Lots of water has flown under the bridges. Things and circumstances are entirely different. I find myself a bit more encumbered now that what I was ten years ago. Still, let us keep oyr fingers crossed. We achieved nine post a feat this year too, on 31 july 2020.

Six out of seven movies whose songs were covered that day have since been YIPPEED. Only one movie, viz “Fifty Fifty” (1956) remains unyippeed and hence eligible for Blog ten year challenge today.

“Fifty Fifty” (1956) had eight songs in it. This movie had made its debut on this day ten years ago. Since then, four more songs from the movie have been covered. So overall five songs of “Fifty Fifty”(1956) have been covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Song Posted On
Chal diya dil mera tod ke 08.08.2010
Aadhi tum khaa lo aadhi ham khaa len 25.08.2010
Mere jaisa nahin milega ulfat ka deewaanaa 14.09.2012
Ye bhool huyi bhoole se kabhi 13.07.2013
Shaam ka aanchal dhalkaa 23.06.2016

Here is the sixth song from “Fifty Fifty” (1956) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Moghan.

This blog used to cover a lot of songs of Madan Mohan in the past, including ten years ago. 65 of Madan Movies (out of 96), including most of his movies of 1950s and 1960s, have already been YIPPEED. So very few songs of Madan Mohan are still left to be covered. So it came as a pleasant surprise to me that there are still a few Madan Mohan songs from 1950s that are not yet covered. There are 7 unyippeed movies of Madan Mohan from 1950s and 8 unyippeed movies of Madan Mohan from 1950s. So we still have a few more Madan Mohan songs that can be discussed in the blog.

Only the audio of the song is available. ISeeing that Nalini Jaiwant was the leading lady, my guess is that the song was picturised on her.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Hullo Atuldom

Often when I read the title of some posts i.e. the name of the song associated with the post, I recollect some other song, may be of a different era. This has happened a number of times. Same goes with movie titles too. There are many movie titles that have been repeated over the years and our in-house encyclopedia, Sudhirji and Atulji have written a few posts regarding the same i.e. about titles that have been repeated.

As I was preparing this post I just googled the title “Bandhan” and I found it has been used about 17 times in TV and movie productions language and country no-bar – found a movie by this title in Bangladeshi cinema too (referred imdb.com). Looks like this is a favorite title of Bengali producers who make entertainment material- there is a drama too with the title “Bandhan” (got this too from imdb.com). Of course we do have movies which have words preceding or following “Bandhan” in their titles- “Bandhan Kachche Dhaagon ka”, “Prem Bandhan”, “Bandhan Anjana” etc etc.

But let us concentrate on Hindi movies. We have four movies with the title “Bandhan” in 1940, 1956, 1969 & 1998.

“Bandhan” (1940) had Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis in the lead, was directed by N.R. Acharya and was a Bombay Talkies production. It had music by Saraswati Devi and Ramchandra Pal. It had 11 songs 7 by Saraswati Devi and 4 by Ramchandra Pal and all the songs are posted on the blog.

“Bandhan” (1956) was directed by Hemchandra Chunder (info from imdb.com), produced by D.K. Sarkar, had Pradeep Kumar- Meena Kumari- Motilal playing main characters and had music by Hemant Kumar. The blog has 2 out of its 7 songs.

“Bandhan” (1969) directed by Narendra Bedi and produced by G.P.Sippy had Rajesh Khanna- Mumtaz- Anju Mahendroo and had music by Kalyanji Anandji. This movie had 5 songs and 4 are on the blog. Sanjeev Kumar had a special appearance in this “Bandhan”.

All these movies are present on the blog. “Bandhan” (1998) directed by K. Muralimohan Rao had Jackie Shroff- Salman Khan- Ashwini Bhave- Rambha and was produced by Narendra Bajaj. Anand raj Anand and Himesh Reshammiya were the music directors. This movie is yet to debut on the blog and it has some good songs.

16th June 2020 is the 100th birthdate of the legendary music director Hemant Kumar Mukherjee. He was born in Varanasi in the house of his maternal grandfather who was a physician. He is said to have grownup in the Bhawanipore area of Calcutta. His first recorded song was in 1935 for All India Radio. His first disc (non-film) was for the Columbia label in 1937 and the 1941 released Bengali film “Nimai Sanyas” had his first film song. His first Hindi film song was under Pt. Amarnath’s music direction in the 1944 release “Iraada”. Hemantda (as he was addressed affectionately) was one of the foremost exponents of Rabindra Sangeet. His first as a music director was the 1947 release “Abhiyatri” in Bengali. A detailed biography of Hemantda has been done by the stalwarts of the blog in a few posts in the past and I am not an authority on Hemantda.

The statistics page of the blog tells me that Hemantda has given music in 55 Hindi movies with a total of 417 songs of these the blog has 290 songs; also he has sung 322 songs of which the blog has 204 song. That means we have covered 50% of Hemantda as music director and about 75% as singer on the blog.

Today on his birth centenary we shall have one more which has been sung by him too. He also happens to be the music director. The song is written by Rajinder Krishan. On screen it is performed by Pradeep Kumar who is going around preaching that it is ‘good to be human’ and follow the ‘jiyo aur jeene do’ policy. He is accompanied by Asit Sen who is in awe. I don’t know if I am the only one who feels this- Hemant Kumar’s voice was tailor-made for Pradeep Kumar.

Remembering Hemant Kumar on his birth centenary.


Song-Jo milna hai Bhagwaan se (Bandhan)(1956) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

jo milna hai bhagwaan se ae
toh mil pehle insaan se ae
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se
toh mil pehle insaan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se ae

jhoothhe bhed ke bandhan
aur yeh oonch neech ki deewaarein
jhoothhe bhed ke bandhan
aur yeh oonch neech ki deewaarein
prabhu se kaise milne dengi
tujhe beech ki deewaarein
toone khud mushkil kar daale
yeh raste aasaan se
toone khud mushkil kar daale
yeh raste aasaan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se

laakh chatur tu bane magar
woh sabse bada sayaana hai
laakh chatur tu bane magar
woh sabse bada sayaana hai
apna aap chhupaa kar
bunta jag ka taana baana hai
chaturaai na bhaaye usey
woh pyaar kare anjaan se
chaturaai na bhaaye usey
woh pyaar kare anjaan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagawan se

uska hona hai jo tujhko
bandon ka tu ho ja
apna aap mita de moorakh
aur usi mein kho ja
uska hona hai jo tujhko
bandon ka tu ho ja
apna aap mita de moorakh
aur usi mein kho ja
neecha kar woh kaam nikaale
jo nikle na maan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se
toh mil pehle insaan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se ae

Today’s song is from a C grade Costume film of the 50s, Aan Baan-56. It was made by D D Kashyap, under his own banner, Kashyap Productions, Bombay. Needless to mention that the film was directed by himself. Music was by Husnlal-Bhagatram, with assistance from krishan Chander. The cast of the film was Ajit, Mahipal, Nalini Jaywant, Usha Kiran, Pran, Ulhas, Manmohan Krishna and many others.

On Saturday, 16th May morning, I got a call on my Mobile. I picked it up and saw that it was flashing name of Bharatbhai and his photo. A little surprised to get his call at early morning hours, I took the call and as usual said,” Good Morning Bharat ji. Aaj subah subah yaad kiya ?” There was a pause and an unfamiliar voice said, ” Main Bharat ji ka beta baat kar raha hoon.” I knew he was ill. My mind suddenly became alert. For next 5 minutes his son was giving me details of his illness and finally he ended with those dreaded words, ” last Friday,8th May ko raat mein 1230 baje Bharatbhai ki death ho gayi “.

I was stunned. I gave my condolences to the bereaved family and kept the phone. I sat still for five minutes. Then I saw a missed call from Sadanand ji. I gave him a call. He too had got the news. We shared our thoughts and it was decided that Sadanand ji will announce this news on our WA group.

Old people parting is not unusual, but when the departed one is close to you or a family member, one does feel the pain. Bharatbhai was around 87 year old, recently he had a Hip Replacement operation and thereafter he was not well. I had spoken to him in the Hospital as well as when he came back home also. However, his going was a pinching shock.

I came to know Bharatbhai in or around 2013, through our Blog. Those days we did not have the WA group. We started exchanging songs and related matters on phone and e-mails. Then he and Nitin ji came calling to my house in early 2014, first time an Atulite visited me. I was very thrilled. I introduced my wife to them. We had deeper friendship after that. One of his friends, Mr. Chavda, stays in our building and is my friend too. During the last 7 years we visited each other’s houses many times, for meetings or otherwise also. When some important person used to visit me, I used to call him also. Thus he had met Biren Kothari, Shishir krishna Sharma, Rajnikumar Pandya, AK ji and others first time at my place only.

In 2018, he, myself and Sadanand ji visited Surat to meet Harish Raghuvanshi ji. Even in this age, his enthusiasm and memory was praiseworthy. The last we met was in Sadanand ji’s house. He missed one meeting in my house in this January, due to his health issues.

Bharat ji was Tech Savvy at this age also. He had a good collection of books. He actually xeroxed few books from his collection and gave me, on my request. Jolly and friendly Bharat ji can not be forgotten easily. Losing him is a great loss. I pray for his Eternal Peace and Attainment of Moksha !

Life goes on……

Today’s film was a routine film. The period in which such films attracted audiences had long ceased, but still some such films were made, albeit in much less numbers. Costume films had a fixed theme of story. Good and Old King, bad Vazir or close relative, beautiful daughter, her handsome singing lover, final sword fighting and all is well in the end. Same story with some ship-shaping here and there used to be presented. In this connection I remember one thing.

In 2004, a book called “Why we tell stories’, written by Christopher Booker was published. It is a book having more than 700 pages-728 pages to be exact. The book says “There are only 7 (Seven) basic plots in the whole world. They are recycled again and again in Novels, movies, Plays and Operas. These are
1.Overcoming the Monster
2.Rags to riches
3.The quest
4.Voyage and return
5.Rebirth
6.Comedy and
7.Tragedy “.

After this book was published, there was a chaos and criticism started. ‘New York Times’ also jumped in. The author coolly replied all points and stuck to his statements. If we look at Hindi films, I personally feel that what the author has said is true in our case. Only thing is that our film stories are always a clever mixture of all or some of the above points. A peculiar thing in our film industry is the ” Story Department” in some film production companies. Members of this department have Extra Para Perception and Extraordinary imagination. They can mix all 7 story elements in one ‘Khichdi’ and make a film. There are many cases where over enthusiasm on their part has killed the Box office prospects of even good films.

I quote her an example. Prakash pictures had become famous for their 2 Block buster hit films based on Ramayan stories. So when their third Ramayan film ” Ram Baan”-48 came, anxious audiences crowded the theatres, but within few days, the theatres were almost empty and the film flopped so badly that it could be called a ” super duper Flop ” ! The reason ? The story department of Prakash pictures and their wildest imaginations !

The team of Mohanlal Dave and Pt. Girish twisted the original Ramayan story so crudely (or cruelly?), that the audience could not digest it. The film showed a) Shurpankha’s swayamvar in Ravana’s darbar – which is not in Ramayana b) Sita wants in this film the Suvarn Mrig skin for NOT her Kanchuki, but as a gift to Laxman’s wife Urmila ! Too much wild imagination. c) Ravan gives his Sandals to Seeta to walk out of the Laxman Rekha…utter foolishness and finally d) Shabari goes to Rama to invite him and when he comes, introduces Hanuman and Sugriva to Rama. She describes how Ravana took Seeta to Lanka etc. Total lies !

These story department twists to Ramayana story, put Prakash Pictures to such a loss, that they came out of it only after Baiju Bawra, 4 years later. The story of film Aan Baan -56 is also a twisted form of the set pattern. Nothing really new in it. Naturally the film was not a success. The director D D Kashyap was an all rounder in films.

DHARAM DEV KASHYAP aka D.D.Kashyap was born in 1910 at Jalalpur in UP(now Uttar Pradesh,but earlier called United Province), in a middle class family without any connection to films or music. When DD came to the college in Lucknow, he was awed by the silent movies. By 1931 the Talkie started and he decided films as his career. He knew that it is only Bombay that can extend opportunities to him. Reaching Bombay, he laboriously worked up his way,doing menial jobs on the way, to the V.Shantaram camp. He was a learned man with a flair for writing, hence he got a chance to become an assistant to Munshi Aziz, while writing dialogues for AADMI-1939.(I checked the credits of Aadmi and truly his name features in the list of assistants, in the Dialogues section.) I can only imagine how he must have felt then.
Looking at his enthusiasm, Shantaram promoted him as one of his asst.Directors in PADOSI-1941. He even did a cameo role of OMKAR in Padosi.
Now he had enough experience and his first film as a Director was NAI KAHANI-1943. Then came a series of films, Chand, Nargis, Aaj ki Raat, pyar ki Jeet, Badi Behan, Kamal ke phool, Aaram, Do sitare, badnam, Naya Ghar, Shama Parwana, Aan baan, Halaku, Maya(Dev Anand film), and Dulhan ek raat ki-67.

he has also written the story of 10 o’clock-58.

He was an actor, writer, s/play writer, dialogue writer, producer as well.
Actually he produced Badi behan-a hit film, Aaram-another hit and Shama Parwana.

He died on 5-9-1988,at Bombay.

Today’s song is a duet of Asha and Mubarak Begum, which, I guess, is the only such duet. The song has a suspicious resemblance to another song from a later film – which I am unable to recollect the name now. If any reader knows, please write in comment section.

Blog Day :

4306 Post No. : 15578

Another wonderful discovery, another song that I had never heard before. The film is ‘Zindagi’ from 1956. The music composition is by Mohammed Shafi.

Mohammed Shafi is the name I was trying to get to also, on 30th April, which is the remembrance day for him. After getting the post in place for C Arjun that evening, I was not able to pull together this post, for remembering Mohammed Shafi Sb.

Once again, another very talented music director about whom, not much information is available. After much searching, I am able to locate a very brief article by a gentleman named Qaseem Abbaasi on the web site ‘Apnaarchives.org’. I am including some details from that article in this post.

He was born sometimes in 1920s. His father’s name was Majid Khan, who passed away when Shafi was very young. Majid Khan was the grandson of the renowned beenkar Bande Ali Khan. Bande Ali was also a master of swar-pradhan gayaki and was the brother of Abdul Karim Khan Sb’s father. As I searched for more details about Bande Ali Khan, I reached the website Swarganga Music Foundation, and a somewhat detailed article on Bande Ali Khan. Browsing through this article, I discover that one of the more famous disciples of Bande Ali Khan is Imdaad Khan of Etawah, who is none other than the grandfather of Ustad Vilayat Khan (28 Aug, 1928 – 13 Mar, 2004), the renowned Sitar maestro of India.

A little clue about his early years can be surmised from a family connection that is mentioned. Mohammed Shafi’s wife, Zeenat, was the sister of Ustad Vilayat Khan. Vilayat Khan Sb’s family came originally from Etawah (close to Agra in UP). Apparently, Vilayat Khan Sb’s grandfather, Imdaad Khan, moved from Etawah to Gouripur in Mymenshingh district in undivided Bengal (now in Bangladesh). Vilayat Khan Sb was born in Gouripur. Sitar and classical music was a family tradition with them, and the family and their music tradition is known as Etawah gharana.

It can be surmised that Mohammed Shafi Sb was also based in Bengal in his early years. One, being married to the sister of Ustad Vilayat Khan, a family based in Mymensingh at that time. Second, Mohammed Shafi started his career at New Theatres, Calcutta (now Kolkata), working as a musician and assisting RC Boral, Pankaj Mullick and KC Dey. It is suggested that he contributed as a musician to films like ‘Kapaal Kundala’ (1939) and ‘Aandhi’ (1940).

In early 1940s, along with the migration of many artists from Calcutta to Bombay (now Mumbai), Mohammed Shafi also moved to Bombay. Although not listed in Geet Kosh, Qaseem Abbaasi Sb has written that he assisted music director Bashir Dehlavi in the 1942 film ‘Ujaala’. In this film, Prithviraj Kapoor played the role of a sitar player, and apparently, some special pieces were composed by Mohammed Shafi for this film.

Later on, he had a long association with Naushad as an assistant music director. For the film ‘Mughal e Azam’, the sitar pieces were prepared/played by both Abdul Haleem Jafar Khan Sb and Mohammed Shafi. It’s said that K Asif used to send a car to pick both of them for playing Sitar for the background music.

He got his first break as independent music director 1946 with the film ‘Haqdaar’. He continued to work till mid 1970s, but has only about 22 24 films to his credit. The number maybe 23, if we consider ‘Badi Maa’ (1974) as a re-release of ‘Tanhaai’ (1961). In parallel, he continued to assist many directors as a musician and music arranger.  Following is the list of films for which has composed music,

  • 1946  Haqdaar
  • 1946  Kaango
  • 1947  Do Naina
  • 1947  Rishta (unreleased)
  • 1947  Shikaarpuri
  • 1949  Anokhi Sewa – along with Dhoomi Khan
  • 1949  Bedard – along with BN Bali and Ram Prasad
  • 1949  Gharaana
  • 1951  Hulchul – along with Sajjad Hussain
  • 1952  Annadaata
  • 1952  Krishna Kanhaiya – along with BS Kalla
  • 1953  Aabshaar – along with Ghulam Haider & Bhola Shreshtha
  • 1953  Daara
  • 1954  Baazooband
  • 1954  Mangu – 2 songs, rest by OP Nayyar
  • 1956  Zindagi
  • 1960  Mohabbat Ki Jeet
  • 1960  Shriman Balasaheb (Marathi)
  • 1961  Tanhaai – later released as Badi Maa in 1974
  • 1965  Kite Fight (Wo Kata)
  • 1967  Shrimant Mehuna Pahije (Marathi)
  • 1971  Iraada – along with Vitthal-Mumtaz
  • 1974  Bari Maa – same as Tanhai (1961)
  • 1975  Dayaar-e-Madina

To his credit – Suman Hemadi Kalyanpur sang her debut song in the film ‘Mangu’ (1954), a wonderfully soft lorie “Koi Pukaare Dheere Se Tujhe” under his music direction. And again, singer Hemlata made her debut under his music direction in the film ‘Iraada’ (1971) – the songs “Main Ankahi Kahaani, Sadiyon Ki Hoon Nishaani” and “Main Jaan Ke Badle Mein Le Loongi Dhadakta Dil”.

A connected piece of information is that he also gave music under different names – Shafi M Nagri / Shafi Nagri / Shafi. All the films that he composed under these pseudonyms are stunt / fantasy type films. The list is,

  • 1953  Shamsheerbaaz
  • 1954  Sher Dil
  • 1955  Carnival Queen
  • 1956  Baghdad Ka Jaadu
  • 1957  Diler Daaku
  • 1959  Chini Jaadugar
  • 1959  Circus Queen
  • 1966  Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chirag – along with Shaukat

[Author’s Note: The name Shaukat for the above listed film ‘Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chirag’ (1966) is most probably Shaukat Dehlavi.]
[Author’s Note: I thank dear Arun ji. His comment on two missing films by Mohammad Shafi prompted me to re check and update the list of films above.]

Adding the above listed eight films, the total films by Mohammad Shafi comes to 32.

In the latter half of 1970s, Mohammed Shafi’s health deteriorated, and his last years were very difficult. He suffered a stroke, which resulted in partial amnesia. It is said that he did not receive any help or friendly hand, from the industry, except from Rafi Sb who would visit him occasionally and quietly leave money under his pillow without telling him.

He passed away after long years of illness on 30th April, 1980.

‘Zindagi’ (1956) is produced under the banner of Kesar Films, Bombay and is directed by CL Dheer. The star cast is listed as Geeta Bali, Vijaylakshmi, Jaswant, Baby Naaz, Gulab, Rasheed, Sudarshan, Krishnakant, Tuntun, and Jagdish Sethi.

There are 8 songs listed for this film. Seven songs are written by Kaifi Azmi, and one song is by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Today’s song is that solitary song from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan.

The singing voices are of Sudha Malhotra, S Balbir and Jagmohan Bakshi. The song is beautifully structured around a very clever use of chorus lines, with clear demarcation of male and female chorus lines. The pace and the rhythm of the song is quite energetic. It seems to be a picnic song, from the manner of singing and the words being said. I request other knowledgeable readers to please add information about this song and the film.

Listen and enjoy.

[Editor’s Note – This song is the 300th song of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan in the blog as a lyricist.]

हम पर ना दया सरकार करो

तेरा चेहरा फूला फूला आमलेट की तरह
ओ तेरी गालियां खा लूँगा चाकलेट कि तरह
मेरे सामने ना चल घासलेट की तरह
ओ मेरे दिल को ना तल पापलेट(?) की तरह
तेरी सूरत टूटी फूटी॰॰ई॰॰ई
प्यार करे मेरी जूती॰॰ई॰॰ई

The movie had six songs. All songs were solo songs. Five different singers sang these six songs.

Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Ghulaam Begam Baadshah”(1956) to appear in the blog. this song is sung by Geeta Dutt, who was the only singer to sing two songs in the movie. Other four songers got to sing one song each.

This song is penned by Indeewar. Music is composed by Sudeept.

PS-Sheila Ramani is the dancer, as ponted out by Prakashchandra, our inhouse face recongnition expert.

The song is picturised as a Rajdarbaar dance song. I am unable to identify the dancer. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her as well as the other actors seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics

duniya

dekh zara

dil se mere dil mila aa

chupke se kya jaadu kiya
nazron se kisne mujhe chhoo liya
chupke se kya jaadu kiya
nazron se kisne mujhe chhoo liya
guncha mere dil ka hans kar khila
guncha mere dil ka hans kar khila
dil se mere dil mila aa
aa dil se mere dil mila

lab pe hansi
dil mein khushi
doobi rahe masti mein ye zindagi
lab pe hansi
dil mein khushi
dubi rahe masti mein ye zindagi
ek jaam nazron se aisa pila
ek jaam nazron se aisa pila
dil se mere dil mila aa
aa dil se mere dil mila

kashti hoon main saahil hai tu
kehta hai dil meri manzil hai tu
kashti hoon main saahil hai tu
kehta hai dil meri manzil hai tu
ab toot bhi jaane de faasla
ab toot bhi jaane de faasla
dil se mere dil mila
aa dil se mere dil mila

marzi jahaan
le chal wahaan
tere liye thhukra doon donon jahaan
marzi jahaan
le chal wahaan
tere liye thhukra doon donon jahaan
duniya hai kya mujhko tu jab mila
duniya hai kya mujhko tu jab mila
dil se mere dil mila aa
aa dil se mere dil mila
dil se mere dil mila aa
aa dil se mere dil mila aa aa

“Aawaara Shahzaadi”(1956) was produced and directed by Pyarelal for Hind Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Meena Shorey, Daljeet, Johny Walker, Sheila Ramani, Malika, Sheikh, Habeeb, Radheshyam, Maqbool, Rajraani, Jillani, Azeem, Pal Sharma, Raju, Rajni, Heera Sawant etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Aawaara Shahzaadi”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is a romantic song which is sung by G M Durrani and Geeta Dutt. Khawar Zamaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Jimmy.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that the song was picturised on the lead pair of Daljeet and Meena Shorey. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.
