Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 135
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 2 December 2012, eight songs from eight movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Today’s song is from a Costume drama-Jalti Nishani-1957.

There was another film Jalti Nishani made in 1932, by Prabhat Film Company of Poona. It was a bilingual film, made in Hindi and Marathi and the Marathi version was titled ” Agni kankan” ( अग्नी कंकण ). That was the usual story of an honest king, a bad Vazir, a runaway queen with her son and the revenge taken after 20 years. The 1957 film with the same title had almost a similar story with some variations. This film was made by Emsheth productions, produced aptly by a rich person called A.G.Dhanik. It was directed by Tara Harish and the melodious music was provided by the grand old man of Hindi film music – Anil Biswas.

The image of Anil Biswas carved in the minds of Music lovers is that of a smiling person who was respected by one and all in the industry. But few people know that behind that smiling face were many unpleasant events in his life. A failed marriage, loss of all earnings while settling the separation, loss of a dear friend-Mehboob, loss of an young son in Indian Air Force, a failed musician son, a pathetic end of his musical career field in Bombay and a life spent away from Bombay made Anil Biswas a Philosophical person at the end of his life.

I have full respect and liking for him as a person and also as a music melody creator in Hindi films. Today, in this post, we will take a short look at his life and a retelling of some interesting happenings of his life. In his Bio,you will find a less known story of his ambitious but unfortunate son who died untimely. I am not going into the details of his songs and music nor am I going to delve into the details of his interesting early life in Bengal, before coming to the Bombay film world scene. So, here we go….

Anil Biswas,the Bhishma Pitamaha of HFM,was a respected person in the industry.He started from the mid 30s and for the next 25 years or so,he created many everlasting gems in film songs. In Bombay,the Playback was first started by him in the film Mahageet-1937. By the mid 50s his magic started waning and by 1960,he was almost gone from the industry. Initially he did 10-11 films with Sagar,then with Mehboob for National studios and then in Bombay talkies- where his name became immortal with the film Kismet-1943.

He married Ashalata in 1936. Along with her he started variety pictures and they produced films like Laadli-49,Laajawab-50;Badi Bahu-51,Hamdard-53 and Bajuband-54. ( a less known fact is-Anil da had made a Guest appearance in the film Hamdard-53 as a barber.) He also acted in the film Mehman-53 (produced by Ashalata),as a Pujari and a song was shot on him.In both cases he did not get any payments. As a Producer he lost heavily, because Ashalata usurped all the money. Frustrated, he gave up everything and separated from her in 1954.

To sustain life,he bought a Truck and did a business of transportation. In addition he also took the contract for a canteen in Mehboob Studios. He failed in both ventures. By now,his relations with Ashalata were soured and sweet links were established with singer Meena Kapoor-25 years younger to him, since 1948 itself.According to some reports, they got married with each other on 19-3-1957. The death of Brother in law and close friend Pannalal Ghosh in 1960 and younger brother Sunil in 1961 as well as his eldest son- Pradeep,broke his heart. He left Bombay and joined A.I.R. at Delhi on 1-3-1963,where he worked upto 27-6-1975. Later he was a consultant for Nehru University for a few years.

Like many filmi couples,Anil da’s married life was also a failure. In Bombay,he used to stay in a huge bungalow,called ” Asha-Pradeep “, on Vincent Road. From Ashalata,he got 3 sons-Pradeep,Amit and Utpal and 1 daughter-Shikha. His son Utpal formed a pair as Amar-Utpal and gave music to few films. The other son Amit established the First Digital Recording Studio in Bombay. Daughter Shikha too got married and settled.

However,hardly anything is known about his eldest son Pradeep,anywhere. Here is some information,hitherto not known much,brought specially for our readers.
Pradeep was a very bright student and always topped in school and college. He passed his entrance exam and the interview,with flying colours for entry to NDA college at Poona,to join armed forces. He excelled even in NDA training.Not only was he very popular there but sang well too. He participated in the music Festival of Khadakwasla NDA and sang 3 songs,winning all prizes. He was also a NDA Topper.

Shri Gopinath Talwalkar,an A.I.R. Programmer at Delhi,used to interview the Toppers of NDA every year. That year Pradeep was the Topper, so he was interviewed. Though the interview was in Hindi, after the recording,Pradeep asked Talwalkar,in pure Marathi,whether his interview had been good. Talwalkar was shocked. Pradeep then explained that he was Anil Biswas’s son and he had learnt Marathi from his actress mother Ashalata. Pradeep knew Hindi,Marathi,English and Gujarati languages.

After completing his NDA training,he was posted as Flight cadet at Jodhpur. He was further promoted and became Pilot Officer in 1957. During one Training flight some altitude problems occurred and his plane crashed at Begumpet Airport, Hyderabad, killing Pradeep instantly. This happened in 1961.

This was also the time of crisis for Anil da. He was struggling to survive. Films were not coming to him. Since he married Meena Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar-a fast close friend of Ashalata , had gone against him and Meena’s singing career was suppressed. He had already lost Pannalal Ghosh and Sunil-his brother and now Pradeep’s death devastated him and he was literally forced to seek employment with Delhi A.I.R., when the opportunity came. After retirement, till his death on 31-5-2003, he spent his life in total anonymity and recluse. So sad for a composer, who was once a fountain of enthusiasm and who was considered Mentor by leading contemporary composers like C.Ramchandra.

Here is an anecdote about C.Ramchandra and Anil Biswas…

On the day of recording the first ever Hindi film song (a chorus song) of C.Ramchandra, (in 1942) all arrangements were done. Chorus singers were ready, musicians were ready and technicians were ready. Suddenly, a set of visitors arrived at the studio. The visitors were all top composers of the day like Anil Biswas, K.Datta, Naval Chatterjee and some others.They all had heard about C Ramchandra, his tunes and his work. They wanted to see how he operated. C Ramchandra had tremendous respect for Anil Biswas. He knew that the contributions of Anil Biswas to Hindi Film Music was praiseworthy. Anil Biswas was a master of harmonization technique in western and Indian music instruments.

C Ramchandra described this event thus-

” It was my great fortune that a senior composer whom I considered as my Guru was present at my first recording. To my greatest surprise all the visitors joined the Chorus group for singing. I just wanted to check if the final take can be taken. I said one ..two..three and the song and music started, but I felt something was wrong. One singer sounded different. I stopped and ran outside to the singers. To my shock it was Anilda who put a Teevr Nishad which was not in my composition. He smilingly asked, is it Ok ? I said respectfully, No Dada, this is not right. He very magnanimously and without further questions agreed and they all sang on my tune only !. ”

Here is one more anecdote about Anil Biswas and Dilip kumar…

A few interesting lines about the duet –‘Aa mohabbat ki basti basayeinge hum’. One afternoon Anil Da at his residence was in the company of celebrated actors –Dilip Kumar and Ashok Kumar. He played on his harmonium and hummed the serious tune of his forthcoming melody -‘Aa mohabbat ki basti basayeinge hum’. As to who will be the female singer, there was absolutely no doubt about Lata; but who will give the male voice? “Dada it should be Talat”-said Ashok Kumar. Whereas Dilip Kumar suggested –“Anil Da, in any case looking at the serious lyrical notes, male singer should be your favorite Mukesh.” Anil Da had something else in his mind. “How if Kishore sings with Lata”- said the maestro. “Kishore!’ –Dilip was taken aback; “if Kishore will sing such a serious song, then ‘Aapka joota aur mera sar (if Kishore will sing such a serious song, my head is ready for your shoe-beating)’” –added Dilip Kumar. “Mein joota le kar aataa hoon, sar tayyar rakho (Be ready with your head, I am bringing my shoe).”

Kishore Kumar was called, who at the first instance, bluntly refused to sing the said duet with Lata. But, the maestro’s conviction prevailed and eventually a heart-throbbing duet was created!

Film Girls school-49 has a very interesting History. As we know the film had 9 songs and there were 2 MDs-Anil Biswas and C Ramchandra (4 and 5 songs each).

This film was produced by Kavi Pradeep under the banner of Lokmanya Productions,Bombay. This was a company floated by him and Amiya Chakrawarty-director of this film. To understand the complexities of Girls school, we must go back a little. In 1942, Anil Biswas was invited by Ranjit @ 1500 pm and by Bombay Talkies @ 2500 pm. As National studio was winding up, AB wanted to make a change anyway, but due to the contract of national he could not join Bombay Talkies openly. He ,however , gave music to film Basant-42 and the name of his brother in Law, Pannalal Ghosh was used as its MD.

Finally when AB joined Bombay Talkies, there were already 2 groups there. One was led by Devika Rani and Amiya Chakraborty and the other was led by S. Mukherjee along with Ashok kumar, Gyan Mukherjee, Pradeep etc- a total of 15 artistes. AB was invited by Devika Rani and that too at 2500 pm,when Pradeep was getting 1500 pm. This irritated Pradeep to no end and he started troubling and finding faults with Anil Biswas. However Anil Biswas gave excellent music to film Kismet and then everyone was happy as the film celebrated jubilees everywhere.

With this background,Anil Biswas joined Girls school as a MD, mainly due to Amiya who knew his calibre. Kavi Pradeep being a producer and a Lyricist started interfering with Anil Bswas’s work and criticising him at every opportunity. AB was fed up. He had already recorded 3 songs and a solo by Lata , ” tum hi kaho,mera man udas kyun na rahe” was to be recorded. Anil Biswas had taken C Ramchandra as his assistant for this film. Though CR was already a popular and well known composer himself, still due to sheer respect for Anil Biswas, he had accepted to be his assistant here. When the tune for Lata’s solo was made, Pradeep passed caustic remarks about it being not so good. There was an altercation between Anil Biswas and Pradeep and Biswas quit then and there and went away.

Automatically, C Ramchandra had to take over as MD for the balance songs. Pradeep was very happy. Next day recording of Lata’s solo song took place under the supervision of C Ramchandra, as planned. Later when Lata came to know that Anil Biswas had left and C Ramchandra had replaced him,she was very angry and said that she would not have recorded the song had she known about AB’s exit. She objected to CR’s taking over and complained to the Artistes association too. (Remember, at that time Lata and CR’s relations had not formed yet, Lata was still with Husnlal.)

Later on in 1954, when O P Nayyar replaced Roshan for Mehbooba-54, Lata took up the issue with the MDs’ association. Anil Biswas was the chairman that time and OPN was boycotted. That time Lata quoted the film Girls school incident to prove that she was ” highly Principled” !

Anyway, this was how C Ramchandra became the next MD of Girls school-49,with 4 duets of Shamshad and 1 solo for Lalita Deulkar. All the 4 duets of this pair are very interesting. However, with all this jhamelas, film Girls school-49 was a total Flop. Pradeep lost heavily and closed the production company forthwith, after just one film.

One peculiar thing with Anil Biswas was that he liked to compose Chorus songs. That is why in almost every film you will find at least one chorus song. Right from his first film to his last film, I checked the song list. Even in his today’s film there are 2 chorus songs. Today’s song also has a chorus in it. It is a good song. Let us enjoy it.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) was produced by Subhash Desai and directed by Manmohan Desai for Mukta Films, Bombay. The movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai,
B.M.Vyas, S.N.Tripathi, Satish Vyas, Amar, Pandey, Kanta Kumari, Malay Sarkar, Champaklala, Krishna Kumari, Mahipal(Guest artiste) etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the blog. Here are the details of the songs:-

09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05 April 2020

Only one song from the movie is left to be covered.

Here is that final song from the movie. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

The song is picturised on Nirupa Roy playing a bride and getting married to the wrong groom. She would not point this out to her elders, rather she would make the most of this opportunity to sing a melancholic song. Singing a melancholic song,(when wronged by fate) was considered the ultimate act of Bhartiya Nari in Hindi movies of those days. Nirupa Roy was one of the leading Bhartiya Naaris of those days. subsequently she graduated to the role of the ultimate Hindi movie maa. 🙂

Amar is also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the nine songs of “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) get covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

This day ten years ago viz 16thJune’2012 saw five songs getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Yoon na reh reh kar hamen tarsaaiye Master Madan (NFS)(1935) N/A
Ye khaamoshiyaan ye samaa Samrat(1954) All songs covered

We can see that five songs were posted on this date ten years ago. One song was a non film song (NFS) and remaining four songs were from four different movies.

The movies represented were ‘Samrat-1954’, ‘Suhaag Sindoor-1961’, ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ and ‘Chhote Babu-1957’. Out of these four movies three movies have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Janam Janam Ke Phere(1957) is the only unYIPPEED movie from that day.

I had watched this movie during my childhood. I do not have not reecollection of the movie. But, the title of the movie and its most popular song, viz ‘zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye’ is permanently ethed in the Read Only Memory (ROM) of my mind.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ (alias ‘Sati Annapurna) was directed by Manoo Desai for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai.

Manoo Desai also wrote this movie and editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar.

(This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.1957.)

This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Krishnakumari, S.N. Tripathi, Amar Pande, Amirbai Karnataki, Satish Vyas, Malay Sarkar, Kantakumari, Champaklal, Santosh Kunwar, and others.

Mahipal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had nine songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by S.N. Tripathi. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey had given their voice to the songs in this movie.

The movie had the following songs in it:-

09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05.04.2020

From the above table we can see that this movie had made its debut on the blog on 25.12.2008. The movie has already lasted for over thirteen years on the blog without being YIPPEED. 🙂

Today we present the eighth and penultimate song from this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Nirupa Roy lip-syncs on screen. Manhar Desai and B.M. Vyas are also visible in the picturisation.

Today’s song is from a ‘1957’ movie namely ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’.

I have mentioned it in my earlier articles that I had the good fortune of being able to watch many black and white movies in my childhood. Recalling those days is a source of great nostalgia for me. ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ is one of those black and white classics that I watched in one of the weekly screening of movies at our colony club where we resided.

Yesterday I was browsing the blog looking for songs composed by S.N. Tripathi. That is when I came across this movie. I was surprised to note that this movie is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Three songs from the movie are still not covered on the blog.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ (alias ‘Sati Annapurna) was directed by Manoo Desai for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai.

Manoo Desai also wrote this movie and editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar.

(This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.1957.)

This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Krishnakumari, S.N. Tripathi, Amar Pande, Amirbai Karnataki, Satish Vyas, Malay Sarkar, Kantakumari, Champaklal, Santosh Kunwar, and others.

Mahipal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had nine songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by S.N. Tripathi. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The list of the songs from this movie is as given below (the earlier posts on the blog do not give this list hence I am giving those details in this post)

Sr.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Janam janam ke phere …saanjh savere sabko ghere, inse na koyi bache re Rafi, chorus 16.02.2013
02 Tu hai ya nahin bhagwan… kabhi hota bharosa kabhi hota bharam Lata, Rafi, Manna Dey 16.06.2012
03 Bhadak uthhi hai…aaja naag tohe man mein basaa loon Lata Mangeshkar 04.01.2020
04 Chaahe raat barsaat ho… raah se dharam ki hataanewaala kaun Lata Mangeshkar
05 Man ka andhiyaaraa… tan ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar boley Manna Dey 03.06.2012
06 Rang birangi phoolon ki jhoomein re daaliyaan… kaali kaali ankhiyon ki chhalke re Pyaaliyaan Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, chorus Being presented today
07 Aatma ki ye … zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar 25.12.2008
08 Baaj rahi shehnaayi dekho baaj rahi shenaayi Lata Mangeshkar
09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05.04.2020

From the above table we can see that this movie had made its debut on the blog on 25.12.2008. The next two songs from this movie were discussed in the year ‘2012’, one song was discussed in ‘2013’. After a long gap, two more songs from this movie were discussed in the year ‘2020’. That is how six songs from this movie have been discussed in a span of 14 years.

T most popular song from this movie was ‘zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye’ and this is also the song permanently associated with this movie’s name in my mind. Other songs of the movie fail to bring similar recollections, though I may have listened to them.

Today 14th March’2022 is the one hundred and nineth birth anniversary of S.N. Tripathi or Shri Nath Tripathi (14 March 1913 – 28 March 1988), the music director of this movie.

S.N. Tripathi also an actor, as well as producer and director of several movies.

Today as a tribute on his birth anniversary I am presenting a song from this movie “Janam Janam Ke Phere”.

Today’s song is sung by Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey. On the screen it is Manhar Desai lip-syncing in Manna Dey’s voice. I guess that the actress lip-syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice is Krishnakumari. Several other woman artists are also present in the picturisation and they lip sync in the voice of the chorus.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs in this movie.

Let us enjoy today’s beautiful composition now …

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Garma Garam-1957.

The film was made by G.M.Pictures, Bombay. The Producer was Navin C Shah and the Director cum story writer cum Screenplay writer cum Lyricist was P.L. Santoshi. The film had music by Vinod. The 11 songs of the film were written by P L Santoshi, D N Madhok and Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. 3 Songs are already on the Blog and this will be its 4th song. Interestingly, this song is written by Santoshi and RMA Khan jointly, as per a note on HFGK.

Of course, this is nothing new. Such things have happened several times in Hindi films. Here are few examples of joint writing the Lyrics of songs….

1.Footpath-53….The famous song by Talat – ” Shyam e gham ki kasam”….Ali Sardar Jafri and Majrooh Sultanpuri.
2.Miss Bombay-57….” Zindagi bhar gham judai ka….Prem Dhawan and Asad Bhopali
3.Buzdil-51….” Rote rote gujar gayi raat re”….Kaifi Azmi and Shailendra
4.Humlog-51….All songs….Vishwamitra Adil and Uddhav Kumar
5.Pardesi-57….” Rimzim barse paani”….Prem Dhawan and Ali Sardar Jafri

This is one of those strange things that happen in Hindi film industry. Of course, such “Mutual Collaboration” are also found in some cases of Film Direction – where two Directors direct a film jointly (those cases are different where a Director dies and another completed his balance work or where the first director left the film and another took over). This has also happened in Music direction where two MDs jointly gave music (cases of established MD pairs are different).

The second notable thing about the film was – the cast consisted of Agha, Gope, Omprakash, Bhagwan, Marutirao, Chhota Gope, Indira Bansal,Nadira, Rajni, Miss Kamal, Maya Das, Krishna kumari and many others. The film was classified as a ” Stunt’ film. I wonder what stunts this band of comedians performed in the film. I saw this film when it was released simultaneously on 5th July 1957 at Lamington Cinema, Bombay as well as in Ashok talkies in Hyderabad. After seeing the film we felt like having got cheated. The film had no stunts and nothing in the film to make the audience ” Garam” either ! In those times while Vinod’s songs of “Ek thi Ladki-1949″ were still echoing in our ears, music of this film made us completely ” Thanda Thanda” and made us wonder if he was the same MD Vinod of Ek thi ladki ? Here is the film’s story which will prove what I have said….

Wealthy Garibdas has no issues, but only 2 Nephews- Banke, a simpleton and Banwari a chaalbaaz, who spends money on dancing girl-Chandni. Knowing this Garibdas makes his will in the name of Banke. While recording his will on camera, he dies without telling location of his wealth halfway.

Banke contacts the photographer-Asha for enquiry. They fall in love. While searching they find that a map and 6 keys hidden in 6 Golden Chairs had the secret. But the chairs are already sold by Banwari to various people in India. They get addresses from the auctioneer who sold these chairs.

Asha and Banke contact all those buyers and get the 6 keys. meanwhile, Banke comes to know all this and catches up with the pair. There is a fight in Banke and Banwari. Banke wins the fight, but magnanimously gives the keys to Banwari. Seeing this generosity, Banwari has a change of heart and both embrace each others.

Finally, they find a Box. Using the keys, they open the Box, only to find only a piece of white paper written ‘ God helps those who help themselves”.
Asha has an idea. She starts pressing the box in different ways and suddenly it opens and the map is found where the wealth is hidden.
The two brothers share the wealth.

The End.

In the cast of the film, there is a name Maruti Rao. He was a comedy actor and father of Comedienne Guddi Maruti. Earlier to him there was another actor called Marutirao Pehelwan ( father of Dancer Gopi Krishna), who operated from Silent films to Talkie films till early 40’s. Although same name, these actors did not cause any ” Same Name Confusion”, because they operated one after another – without overlapping their career period. However, I still found that some sites making a mix up of their Filmography.

His full name was Marutirao Ganpatrao Parab. He was born on 12-2-1927 at Ahmednagar, near Poona. After completing his Matriculation, he came to Bombay to try his luck in film acting. His first few films like Pagli Duniya-44, and Gajre-48 were without his name in credits He got his credits firmly from film Albela-51. Then he faeatured in many many films…Footpath-53, Baap re Baap-55, Baghdad ka chor-55, Chori chori-56, Guest House-59, Opera House-61, parasmani-63, Lutera-65, Ustad 420-69, Shor-72, Kunwara Baap-74, Don-78 etc etc. In the 60’s he mainly worked in Dara Singh films.

He acted in total 221 films and featured in 34 songs on screen. He also directed 7 films, namely Baghi Shehzada-64, Hum sab ustad Hai-65, Killers-69, Bank Robbery-69, Mangu Dada-70, Kahin aar kahin paar-71 and Hum sab chor hain-73. His last film as actor was Bandish – 1980. As an actor he was not much satisfied, but film direction gave him joy and satisfaction. After his last film he retired from films. However several films like karate-83 and Naya Bakra-85 got delayed releases. He died peacefully on 12-3-1981.

he had married his co-star Miss kamal, a small time actress who worked in films like Dashehra-56, Tartar ka chor-55, Garma Garam -57, Darbar-55, Riyasat-56 etc. etc. Their daughter Guddi Maruti had a better luck in films than both of them. ( Thanks to a note by Rajni kumar Pandya ji, book ‘Eena, meena deeka’ by Sanjit Narvwekar, HFGK, muVyz and my notes).

Today’s song is a Qawali sung by Mohd.Rafi, S D Batish, Asha Bhosale and Shamshad Begum with Chorus.

This day ten years ago viz 27 January 2012 was a lean day for the blog. Just one song was covered on that day. The song was Chhaaya hai samaa mera dil hai jawaan from “Qaidi”(1957). The movie made its debut in the blog with this song.

O P Nayyar was an odd man out in Hindi film industry as a music director. He did not have the formal or informal training in the music. He did not undergo ‘apprenticeship’ under any music directors. He did not work with Lata Mangeshkar during his entire career as a music director. The top three star-actors of 1950s and 60s – Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand and Raj Kapoor avoided him as a music director after working with him for one or two films. He did not work with Raj Khosla after his spate with him in ‘Ek Musaafir Ek Haseena’ (1962). His egoistic, stubborn, ‘calling spade a spade’ type of nature and some shades of eccentricities should have made him persona non grata in the Hindi film industry. Despite all these odds, he attained the status of one of the top music directors of Hindi films during 1950s and 1960s.

I always felt that O P Nayyar was the ‘Eklavya’ of Hindi film music – a self-trained music director who got inspirations from more than one Dronachaya of music directors – R C Boral, Pankaj Mullick, Ghulam Haider and Anil Biswas. As a teenager, O P Nayyar was fascinated by the films of New Theatres which he watched in Lahore. He was mesmerised by the songs of K L Saigal and Pankaj Mullick which guided him to pursue the singing career. He was a regular singer of bhajans and ghazals on AIR, Lahore in the 1940s until the partition. Two of his Kabir dohas which he used to recite on AIR. Lahore were recorded and released on HMV disc in 1943. He composed his first recorded song – a non-film, ‘preetam aan milo’ in the voice of C H Atma in 1945 which became very popular.

After shifting to Mumbai following the partition, O P Nayyar’s first three films – ‘Aasmaan’ (1952), ‘Cham Chama Cham’ (1952) and ‘Baaz’ (1953) turned out to be the flop films. It was only after a huge box office success of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) that O P Nayyar established himself as music director and remained one of the top music directors of Hindi films until about end-1960s.

O P Nayyar achieved his musical career progression despite the handicap of his stubbornness and other traits. The same handicap also resulted in his downfall. In 1966, he had a spate with Mohammed Rafi during one of the songs recording of ‘Saawan Ki Ghata’ (1966) after which he did not work with Rafi for a long time. In 1974, Asha Bhosle, his muse of over 15 years, decided to part with him in what appears to be the clash of egos. By this time, Asha Bhosle had also become a force to reckon with in Hindi film music.

O P Nayyar’s musical journey virtually ended by mid-1970 though he did a few sporadic films until 1995. He spent rest of his life in isolation away from film industry and his family until his death in January 2007.

The question that may come to the minds of many Hindi film music enthusiasts as to how O P Nayyar could churn out many beautifully crafted songs based on Hindustani classical raags. In this context, it is worth mentioning the observations of Ustad Ameer Khan when he heard all the 11 songs of ‘Phaagun’ (1958). When O P Nayyar met Ustad Ameer Khan in some context, the latter asked him as to why he had composed all the 11 songs in Raag Pilu. O P Nayyar had no answers except to tell him it was just a coincidence that his compositions matched with Raag Pilu. Incidentally, Ustad Ameer Khan rendered for O P Nayyar, a bandish, jogiya mere ghar aaye in raag Lalit in ‘Raagini’ (1958). In the later years, Ustad Ameer Khan pointed out to him that in akeli hoon main piya aaa from ‘Sambandh’ (1969), he has used about 16 different raagas. Probably, music composition was God’s gift to O P Nayyar.

O P Nayyar has composed many raag-based songs, some of which are semi-classical compositions in the films like ‘Aasmaan’ (1952), ‘Naya Daur’ (1957), ‘Raagini’ (1958), ‘Phaagun’ (1959), ‘Kalpana’ (1960), ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon’ (1963) etc. Almost all of his semi-classical songs have been covered on the Blog. But there is one semi-classical song which did not get as much attention from the Hindi film music lovers as it deserved. The song is from an obscure film ‘Qaidi’ (1957) which is yet to be covered on the Blog.

‘Qaidi (1957) was produced by F C Mehra under his banner, Eagle Films and was directed by Mohammed Hussain. The star cast included Padmini, Suresh, Anwar Hussain, Helen, Agha, Ragini, Leela, Johny Walker, M Kumar, Kamal Mehra, Rajan Kapoor etc. It was a ‘B’ grade action-oriented film. The film was released in January 1957.

The film had 8 songs of which 6 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Jaan Nisaar Akhtar which were set to music by O P Nayyar. I am presenting the 7th song, ‘bedardi preet nahi jaani’ which is a semi-classical song rendered by Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. The video clip of the song is not available on any of the video sharing platforms. There is one audio clip which is available with an average sound quality. I have, therefore, made a new video clip from a mp3 clip of the song with me in a better sound quality and have uploaded the same.

From the lyrics as well as taraanas, the song appears to be picturised on two dancers. From the star cast, there are 4 dancers in the film – Padmini, Ragini, Helen and Leela. From the available video clips of the songs, it is observed that Asha Bhosle has sung both for Padmini and Helen in the film. In addition, Shamshad Begum has also sung for Padmini. If the song is used for the dance competition, it is quite likely that the dancers could be Padmini and Ragini as both are trained Bharatnatyam dancers and in the film, Ragini plays the role of Padmini’s friend.

I am not able to tell on which Raag the song has been composed. However, the tune closely resembles that of ae ri jaane na doongi from ‘Chitralekha’ (1964) which, according to Swarganga, is based on Raag Kamod.

Note: In this article, I have taken some inputs from an interview of O P Nayyar which appeared on http://www.cinemasangeet.com. and also from an article on O P Nayyar which was published in millenniumpost.
