– – – –

Skipping the letter ‘फ’ – no more songs available as applicable this series, starting with this letter. We come to ‘ब’.

This song from the obscure 1958 film ‘Sun To Le Haseena’, is an unfamiliar but a very lovely melody from the mind of S Mohinder. The film is a social drama coming from the famous Filmistan Studios, Bombay, and is directed by SP Bakshi. The Geet Kosh lists seven songs for this film. These seven songs are written by four songwriters – Saarshaar Sailiaani, Rahil Gorakhpuri, Anand Bakshi and Kaif Irfani. Today’s song is penned by Anand Bakshi. The music director is S Mohinder. Singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle.

The cast of actors for this film is listed as Shashikala, Ravindra Kapoor, Agha, P Kailash, Badri Prasad, Randhir, Gulab, Sabita Chatterjee, Kanu Rai, Manju, Manohar Geer, Vitthal Das Panchotia, Madhu Apte, Ramlal, Leela, Bazid Khan, Rajeshwar Singh, Noor, Chandramohan, Pathak, Shantaram, Ravi Tandon, Sundar, Pal.

The leading man Ravindra Kapoor, younger brother of actor Kamal Kapoor, belongs to the Kapoor family, and is a first cousin of the Raj Kapoor generation. Folks will remember Nasir Hussain’s 1971 film ‘Caravan’. In this film, Jeetendra has two assistants / cleaners in his truck business. One is Junior Mehmood, and the other is Ravindra Kapoor. Ravindra Kapoor did not make a successful and popular career in Hindi films as a leading hero. However, he was quite a hit in Punjabi films in 1960s, and was a very popular leading man in that time. Some of his Punjabi films include ‘Sherni’  (1973), ‘Kankan De Ohle’  (1970), ‘Dupatta’  (1969), ‘Mukhra Chan Warga’  (1969), ‘Paun Baran’  (1969), ‘Punjabi Munda’  (1968), ‘Pind De Kuri’ (1967), ‘Khed Preetan Di’  (1967), ‘Neem Hakeem’  (1967), ‘Kunwari’  (1966), ‘Gabroo Desh Punjab De’  (1966), ‘Laiye Tod Nibhaiye’  (1966), ‘Shokan Mele Di’  (1965), ‘Saat Saaliyan’  (1964), ‘Mere Haaniyan’  (1963), ‘Pardesi Dhola’  (1959), ‘Chambe Di Kali’ etc.

From 1970 onwards, he is known better by the name Goga Kapoor. In Hindi films, as per the Geet Kosh listings (till 1980), he has appeared in 20 films (there are more films listed post 1980 when we check online), of which about 7 or 8 are as leading man, opposite to heroines like Shashikala, Ameeta and Indrani Mukherjee. In the remaining appearances, he is in character artist roles. In his later years, he was doing more villain and gangster type roles. He passed away in 2011.

[Note: With tongue in cheek, I reveal my personal connection to this clan. My mother’s second cousin on her maternal side of the family (from Simla) is/was married to Ravindra Kapoor. 🙂 ]

The song is sung by Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle. It is a lively nok-jhonk exchange between lovers. Only the audio of this song is available, so it is not possible say who has sung it on screen. It could be Ravindra Kapoor and Shashikala, or it could be Agha, and one of the supporting ladies. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this song and this film, if available.

Listen to this racy song. Peevesie’s Mom commented earlier today that “. . . josh which only Mohd. Rafi could bring to a song no matter who is lip syncing.” So true, the one and only Rafi Sb.
Enjoy this song.

Song – Baanke Teerandaaz Jaan Le Le Na Ho Naraaz  (Sun To Le Haseena) (1958) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – S Mohinder

Blog Day : 3727 Post No. : 14666

Today, October 1st is the birth anniversary of two iconic personalities of Hindi film music. Both started their career in Hindi film industry in Bombay (Mumbai) in 1946 – one as a music director and the other as a lyricist. Yes, it is Sachin Dev Burman’s 112th birth anniversary and Majrooh Sultanpuri’s 99th birth anniversary. Both have been my favourites amongst the music directors and lyricists of the golden era of Hindi film music. Both seem to have been made for each other. SD Burman was one of the earliest pioneers in introducing the concept of ‘tune first lyrics later’ in Hindi film music while Majrooh Sultanpuri was master in writing lyrics to the tune.

I found both of them to be non-conformists in their respective fields.  SD Burman’s compositions did not leave trails to identify them as SD Burman type of music. In my younger days, it was not easy for me to identify the songs composed by SD Burman. Had I not known in advance, I would have difficulties in knowing that songs of ‘Baazi’ (1951), ’Pyaasa’ (1957) and  ‘Nau Do Gyarah’ (1957) were composed by the same music director. Majrooh Sultanpuri on the other hand wrote lyrics of varied moods and of all genres with ease. Another common factor between these two stalwarts was that both were called as ‘old man with young heart’. If SD Burman could composed Roop Tera Mastaana at the age of 64, Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote lyrics for Raat Shabnami Bheegi Chaandni at the age of 77.

Despite both SD Burman and Majrooh Sultanpuri starting their filmy career in 1946, it took about 11 years for both of them to work together in Navketan’s  ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957), though the other collaboration, ‘Paying Guest’ (1957) was released first. The main reason was that SD Burman was already working with Sahir Ludhianvi since 1951. It was only when SD Burman stopped engaging Sahir after ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) that he found Majrooh Sultanpuri as a suitable lyricist partner. From 1957 till SD Burman’s death in October 1975, both of them worked together in 20 films composing 137 songs.

I have already written about Majrooh Sultanpuri last year while covering the song Nanha Mora Doley Mori Anganiaa. So in this article, I propose to discuss only the musical career of SD Burman.

Sachin Da (1/10/1906 – 31/10/1975) was born in Comilla, a part of Tripura at that time (now in Bangladesh). He belonged to Tripura’s royal family in which his father, Nabadwip Chandra Dev Burman, was the next in line to Tripura Royalty. However, due to some palace machinations, Nabadwip Burman was denied his right as the next king of Tripura because of which he along with his family shifted to Comilla. SD Burman’s childhood years in Comilla became his training ground for music as he became enthralled by the folk music of what was then known as East Bengal.

After graduation from a Comilla college, SD Burman enrolled for Master’s degree in English in the University of Calcutta in 1924. However, he soon gave up his studies to become the disciple of Krishna Chandra Dey (KC Dey). Later, he continued his musical training under Ustad Badal Khan and Pandit Bhishamdev Chatopadhyay.  The royal family of Tripura were the connoisseurs of Hindustani classical music. They resented SD Burman’s indulgence in singing and recording folk songs for earning as it was below dignity for a royal member of family to earn from the music. They also felt that folk songs were not meant for royalty as they were sung by the lower strata of the society. Because of this, SD Burman did not get the traditional royal welcome when he visited Agrtala after his marriage with Meera in 1938.

In 1932, SD Burman left Tripura for Calcutta (Kolkata) for pursuing his interest in music. In the same year, he approached HMV for his first recording of a non-filmy Bengali song. However, he failed in the audition test. Luckily for him, Hindustan Musical Products (Hindustan Records) offered to record his first gramophone song. The song became a major success for Hindustan Records. During 1932-1946, SD Burman recorded over 100 non-films, mostly Bengali and some filmy Bengali songs most of which became commercially successful.

Despite success as a singer in non-film songs, SD Burman had to face disappointment in 1933 when a song sung by him in the film ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1933) was deleted and was recorded afresh in the voice of Pahadi Sanyal due to the internal politics of New Theatre. In 1935, SD Burman got an opportunity to do a minor role of a beggar in Madhu Bose’s film ‘Selima’ (1935) in which he was to sing a song. At first, SD Burman refused telling that he would be ostracised from the Tripura royal family if they came to know that he was working in a film. However, Madhu Bose assured him that no one would recognise him in his make-up of a beggar with beard and moustache. So this became SD Burman’s first film song as an actor-singer.

Sometime in 1942, SD Burman got an offer from Chandulal Shah to join Ranjit Movietone as music director. The offer was declined as he did not relish the idea of leaving Kolkata. In the next two years, he found that he was not able  to get enough opportunity to compose music for Bangla films as all important banners had their own music directors in their pay rolls. These music directors would offer him to sing as a playback singer which he would not agree as his wish was to become a music director. At this juncture, he took a decision that he would not sing for any other music directors and he would sing his own compositions for films not as a playback singer but as background singer. He maintained that stand consistently after he became a part of the Bombay (Mumbai) film industry in 1946.

In early 1940s, Bengal was reeling under the worst famine. The film industry was adversely affected. There was an exodus from Kolkata to Mumbai film industry for a different reason. SD Burman knew that despite his liking for Kolkata, he had to move to Mumbai to be able to achieve his dream of becoming a music director. In October 1944, SD Burman along with his family landed in Mumbai on the invitation from Rai Bahadur Chunnilal and Sashadhar Mukherjee who had formed Filmistan with Ashok Kumar, Gyan Mukherjee and other technicians, a breakaway group from Bombay Talkies.  Burman joined Filmistan as music director.

In Mumbai, SD Burman’s greatest handicap was his inability to fully understand Hindi, leave aside Urdu.  This handicap willy-nilly made him the pioneering in ‘tune first lyrics later’ concept in Hindi film song compositions. It is said that in his first two films with Filmistan, C Ramchandra helped SD Burman in music arrangements. I guess, as a newcomer, it was difficult for him to arrange musicians and communicate with them.

His first film as a music director was ‘Shikaari’ (1946) followed by ‘Aath Din’ (1946), both produced under the banner of Filmistan.  The music of ‘Shikari’ (1946) did not create much interest in the common public though studio hands appreciated newness in his music compositions. However, songs of ‘Aath Din’ (1946) especially two songs sung by SD Burman and Pehle Na Samjhaa Pyaar Tha by Ameerbai Karnataki became popular and made him a different class of music director well-versed with the then East Bengal folk music.

SD Burman was not satisfied with his music in these two films as he did not find anyone in the streets singing his songs. On the contrary, he found his servant always humming the songs from ‘Rattan’ (1944). He felt that unless his songs became popular on the streets, his presence as a music director would never be felt in Bombay film industry.

In the meanwhile, Sashadhar Mukherjee allowed him to take up the music direction in the films outside Filmistan. In 1947, he did two films outside Filmistan – ‘Chitor Vijay’ (1947) and ‘Dil Ki Rani’ (1947) both having Raj Kapoor and Madhubala as lead pairs. Neither the films fared well on the box office front nor did the songs become popular. The only point of interest in ‘Dil Ki Rani’ (1947) was that SD Burman made Raj Kapoor to sing in his own voice a song, O Duniya Ke Rehne Waalo Bolo Kahaan Gaya Chitchor.

Filmistan entrusted SD Burman with the music direction of ‘Do Bhai’ (1947). Sashadhar Mukherjee was a hard task master who rarely got satisfied with the tunes SD Burman composed for this film. Fed up with the constant rejections of tunes by Sashadhar Mukherjee, one day, SD Burman decided to have a show down with his boss. Probably after that he would think of leaving Filmistan and go back to Kolkata. To his surprise, Sashadhar Mukherjee at once approved the first tune he played on the harmonium and asked him record the song at the earliest. The song was Mera Sundar Sapna Beet Gaya sung by Geeta Roy (later Dutt). This song made Geeta Roy a star playback singer overnight. The film was a box office success. For the first time, SD Burman heard his servant humming this song which made him very happy. In 1948, he composed songs from ‘Vidya’ (1948). It was his first film with Dev Anand and Suraiya. The film did not fare well on the box office but one song  Laayi Khushi Ki Duniya, picturised on Dev Anand and Suraiya, became very popular.

Filmistan’s ‘Shabnam’ (1949) can be regarded as SD Burman’s first real successful film as a music director as all the songs of the films became very popular. For SD Burman, it was one of his most satisfying period of his musical career as he found the songs of ‘Shabnam’ being heard on the street quite often. He even heard the labourers at Bandra Railway Station, singing one of the songs from this film in tandem with their track maintenance work.

In 1950s, SD Burman did not have much success as a music director. ‘Afsar’ (1950) was his first film for Navketan – a film production company started by Chetan Anand and Dev Anand. The film did not fare well at the box office although two songs – Naina Deewaane Ek Nahin Maane and Man Mor Huaa Matwaala became popular. ‘Pyaar’ (1950) also did not have a great run. SD Burman was now depressed that even after 5 years of his stint as a music director in Bombay film industry, he has not established himself as a successful music director. With this thought in mind, he decided to leave Mumbai and return to Kolkata.

At that time, Ashok Kumar was reviving Bombay Talkies by producing ‘Mashaal’ (1950) for which SD Burman was entrusted with the music direction. His leaving at a crucial juncture would have affected the film. After much persuasion by Ashok Kumar, SD Burman stayed back to complete the music direction of the film with a condition that after the completion of his work, he would return to Kolkata.

It so happened that ‘Mashaal’ (1950) became a box office hit film. Almost all the songs of the film became very popular. But it was Manna Dey’s song,  Upar Gagan Vishaal which drew attention of the common folk. With this song, Manna Dey seemed have announced that he had, at last, arrived in the world of Hindi film music. Manna Dey had worked as an Assistant Music Director for SD Burman but he got his first chance to sing under his baton only in ‘Mashaal’ (1950).

With the success of ‘Mashaal’ (1950), producers lined up for signing SD Burman for their films which included ‘Bahaar’ (1951), ‘Buzdil’ (1951), ‘Ek Nazar’ (1951), ‘Naujawaan’ (1951) and ‘Sazaa’ (1951). All these films had very popular songs some of which are still remembered today like Sainya Dil Mein Aana Re, Jhan Jhan Jhan Jhan Paayal Baaje, Thandi Hawaayen Lehra Ke Aayen and Tum Na Jaane Kis Jahaan Mein Kho Gaye.

But one film SD Burman  did in 1951 gave a tremendous boost to his career as a music director – it was Navketan’s ‘Baazi’ (1951). It was Guru Dutt’s first directorial venture. SD Burman’s musical treatment in this film was quite a contrast to what he had so far churned out. There were no Bengali traces in the songs. Instead, he predominantly used western and Punjabi beats. In fact, he turned Sahir Ludhinavi’s philosophical ghazal, Tadbeer Se Bigdi Huyi Taqdeer Banaa Le  into a seductive club song. All the songs of ‘Baazi’ (1951) became super hits. The success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) made SD Burman almost a permanent fixture with Navketan Banner until ‘Chhupa Rustom’ (1973). By now, he had dropped the idea of shifting to Kolkata.

The musical success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) created a successful pair of Sahir Ludhianvi and SD Burman. During 1951-57, both of them created 138 songs in 18 films. Unfortunately, due to clash of egos, they did not work together after ‘Pyaasa’ (1957).

I will not go into further details of his successful films as they are in large numbers. But there are a few films which I consider as classic insofar as SD Burman’s music is concerned. They are ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954), ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957), ‘Paying Guest’ (1957), ‘Kaala Paani’ (1958), ‘Sujata’ (1959), ‘Kaala Baazar’ (1960), ‘Bandini’ (1963) ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ (1963), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Aradhana’ (1969), ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970), ‘Sharmilee’ (1971), ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971), and ‘Abhimaan’ (1973). But within these films, there were high points in SD Burman’s musical career – ‘Baazi’ (1951), ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Aradhana’ (1969) and ‘Abhimaan’ (1973).

During 1946 until his death in October 31, 1975 SD Burman composed music for 90 films (including one unreleased film) comprising 673 songs (666 songs if I exclude 7 songs from the unreleased film). This gives an annual average of 3 films. According to those who had closely worked with SD Burman, he would consider him to be ‘busy’ if he had two films on hand. He considered himself ‘very busy’ if he had 3 films on hand. He would not take any more musical assignments until he completed one of the three films on hand. So the annual average of 3 films are within the parameter he set for himself.

It was during the recording the song, Badi Sooni Sooni Hai Zindagi Ye Zindagi  from ‘Mili’ (1975) that SD Burman got paralytic attack and was shifted to Bombay Hospital. Later, RD Burman completed the recording of the song. What an irony! When Kishore Kumar was singing this song for recording, his mentor was in the hospital in deep coma. SD Burman remained in coma for the next 5 months until his end came on October 31, 1975.

Since the article has already become very lengthy, I propose to write a second part of the article covering some other aspects of SD Burman’s Hindi film music on his Remembrance Day on October 31, 2018. There are hundreds of anecdotes in the life of SD Burman – some known and some unknown to me – which makes his musical journey very interesting. While Gulzar called him ‘Prince of Music’, Pandit Hari Prasad Charasia referred him as ‘Sangeet Sant’ (Saint of Music). Kersi Lord, who worked with SD Burman as a drummer and later as an accordionist for a very long time, called him ‘an old man with a young heart’ insofar as his music was concerned. Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, the santoor player called SD Burman as a wonderful person with child-like innocence.

I will end this article with a statement that SD Burman was a music director who remained at the zenith of his musical career in Hindi film industry since the success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) until his death on October 31, 1975. Even 5 year hiatus with Lata Mangeshkar (1957-62) did not affect his musical career. Some of the films for which SD Burman composed music may have failed at the box office but his music did not fail.

On the occasion of 112th birth anniversary of SD Burman and 99th birth anniversary of Majrooh Sultanpuri, I present one of their creations from ‘Sitaaron Se Aage’ (1958). The film was produced by VL Narasu, a coffee plantation magnate from the South India. The film starred Ashok Kumar, Vyjayantimala, Jagdish Sethi, Johny Walker, Shammi, Iftekhar, Raja Sulochana, Leela Mishra, Manmohan Krishna etc.

The film seems to have jinxed from the very beginning. Gyan Mukherjee was originally assigned to direct the film. He had even completed musical sitting with SD Burman. The film went into shooting floor in 1956. However, Gyan Mukherjee fell ill and was diagnosed with brain tumour. He was also afflicted by Parkinson’s disease. He passed away in November 1956. Ashok Kumar had to rope in Satyen Bose to direct the film (As revealed by late Sachin Bhowmick and quoted in ‘SD Burman – The Prince Musician’ – Anirudh Bhattacharjee & Balaji Vittal (2018).

During the making of the film, SD Burman got into tiff with Lata Mangeshkar on the issue of re-recording of the song, Sainya Kaise Dhaaroon Dheer as he wished to record the song afresh with some changes in the tune. Since Lata was leaving for a foreign trip, she could not give him the date, nor she could commit to give a priority date on her return from the trip. This enraged SD Burman to such an extent that he stopped engaging Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer for the next 5 years. He got the above-mentioned song recorded in the voice of Asha Bhonsle. But she could not render the song the way S D Burman wanted. So he retained the originally recorded Lata version for the film. The remaining songs which were to be sung by Lata in the films were rendered by Asha Bhonsle (3) and Geeta Dutt (1).

After about 8 years from this incidence, SD Burman got his original wish fulfilled. Lata Mangeshkar recorded a song based on the tune of the song referred to above. The result was the culmination of a new song for the film ‘Guide’ (1965). The song was Mo Se Chhal Kiye Jaaye Dekho Sainya Beimaan. Incidentally, as I checked from the credit titles, Hiralal was one of the choreographers for both ‘Sitaaron Se Aage’ (1958) and ‘Guide’ (1965).

‘Sitaaron se Aage’ (1958) got delayed and finally released sometime in early 1958. The film was a musical extravaganza with Vyjayantimala performing a number of semi-classical dances in the film. A feature of the songs in this film was that  SD Burman used Western scores in a couple of songs like Chanda Ki Chaandni Ka Jaadoo and Mehfil Mein Aaaye Wo Aaj Dheere Se that sounded like waltz music.

So far 7 songs (out of 9 including one multiple version song) from this film have been covered in the Blog. I present the 8th song – ‘Aa Khilte Hain Gul, O Mere Bulbul’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song was written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and picturised on Vyjayantimala as a dance song. The song is not only melodious but rhythmic as well.

It is felt that changes take place slowly, especially in a country like India. Nevertheless, one cannot imagine how much India has changed in the last half a century or so. Actions that were considered acts of bravery and machismo those days are today wrong, undesirable, unhealthy, unsafe and even illegal. For instance, tiger hunters were considered saviors of humanity in India and they were respected by every one. Books written by hunters were taught in schools and colleges. Likewise felling trees and clearing space was considered a work of development and progress which was an act of nation building.

Today, killing tigers and other wild animals is illegal in India. In fact, movies showing animals must carry a disclaimer that no animals were harmed while picturising them. As for trees, entire Rail industry ran on wooden sleepers made out of trees felled on mass scale. In fact, olden steam locomotives in many countries (including India) used wood (and not coal) as fuel. Today, felling a single tree is considered a bigger crime in India than killing human beings.

Smoking was considered a macho male act. Today smoking itself is considered an unhealthy act that destoys one’s lungs and lead to cancer. Heroes are no longer shows smoking in movies unlike in the past and there too the statutory warning is required to be carried out.

In olden days, studying was good and playing was bad.

“padhoge likhoge banoge nawaab
kheloge koodoge hoge kharaab”

It was a very popular saying in India for many decades. Today of course no one believes in it. Sports have become professional and top sportsmen (often school dropouts) in lucrative sports earn such high incomes that majority of studious people can only dream about.

Likewise, government policies that were considered great those days have ended up becoming discredited. India followed socialism for the first four decades after its independence. By late 1990, this policy led to the counttry becoming virtually bankrupt and that policy has been discarded by now.

“Maalik” (1958) was directed by S M Yousuf for Sunny Art Production. The movie had Talat Mehmood, Suraiyya, Lalita Pawar, Roopmala, Jeevan, Mukri, Radhakrishen, Kumar , Jagdeep etc in it.The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. The last song from the movie was covered in 2014.

The song under question was planned by me to be discussed in 2014 itself and I had decided to make it post number 9929, to be posted in june 2014. Somehow this song did not materialise then. Now, more than four years later, here is this song from “Maalik”(1958). It is fair to say that the messages contained in the song would be considered by and large irrelevant today. 🙂

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song is sung by a school teacher to her pupils who enthusiastically sing along in approval. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Padhoge likhoge banoge nawaab (Maalik)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad
Asha Bhonsle + Chorus
Chorus

Lyrics

padhoge likhoge

jo kheloge koodoge

padhoge likhoge
banoge nawaab tum
banoge nawab

jo bachche kabhi likhte padhte nahin
wo izzat ki seedhi pe chadhte nahin
jo bache kabhi likhte padhte nahi
wo ijjat ki sidi pe chadhte nahin

yahi din hain padhne ke padh lo kitaab
yahi din hai padhne ke padh lo kitab
padhoge likhoge banoge nawab tum banoge nawaab
jo kheloge koodoge hoge kharab tum
hoge kharaab

buraai ke raste se bach kar chalo
buraai ke raste se bach kar chalo
kabhi jhooth bolo na chori karo
kabhi jhooth bolo na chori karo
agar mar bhi jaao na peena sharab nahin peena sharab
agar mar bhi jaao na peena sharab
padhoge likhoge banoge nawab tum banoge nawaab
jo kheloge kudoge hoge kharab tum
hoge kharaab

jawaan hoke bharat mein Nehru bano
jawaan hoke bharat mein Nehru bano
tum inte bade ho ke Bapu bano
tum inte bade ho ke Bapu bano
jawaan hoke bharat mein Nehru bano
tum inte bade ho ke Bapu bano

na ho duniya bhar mein tumhaara jawaab
na ho duniya bhar mein tumhaara jawaab
padhoge likhoge banoge nawab tum
banoge nawaab
jo kheloge kudoge hoge kharaab tum
hoge kharaab

Blog Day : 3651 Post No. : 14500

With well over fourteen thousand plus songs and counting, blog century post is a keenly looked forward to occasion for the blog. It signifies the achievement of yet another century for the blog.

With this song, we achieve one more century for the blog, namely century number 145. In other words, this post is song post number 14500 for the blog.

Under normal circumstances, a century landmark is often the main show in the blog, but this time it finds itself relegated to the status of a sideshow. The blog is completing ten years of its existence in a couple of days from now, and we are all concentrating on that mega event. It is like a grand wedding coming up in a family that everyone is concentrating on and they miss the fact that a kid in the family had just won a seat in a prestigious college. On another day, it would be a grand occasion, but it gets ignored on a occasion like this.

Well, a century is a century, as our respected Sunil Gavaskar never fails to remind us. 🙂 And that is indeed the case. No century comes easy in this blog. This century has been toughgoing. This time duration of 41 days for this century had as many as four dot days including two dot days in a row, which is quite unusual for the blog. A late surge for the last few days, driven by entusiasm for the forthcoming 10th anniversary date sees us clocking a good number of posts (26) in the last six days. It looks like lightening pace by present days standard of the blog, but believe me, it would have regarded as ultra slow in olden days of yore (2011-12) when we averaged 6 to 7 songs in a day and some less enthusiastic music lovers would request us to go slow on our postings. 🙂

Coming to the song, this song, like most blog century songs, richly deserves this honour. This song is a qawwaali. Those music lover who are fans of qawwaali would know what a good qawwaali means. It means a song lasting more than seven or eight minutes and still music lovers not realising how this time flies away. Typical HFM qawwaalis has nok-jhonk between the two genders, where the lead singer of each genders has chorus to lend support to them. The lyrics of these qawwaalis are , to my mind the real stars of this genre of song. The words, word plays, the taunts, the jokes that form part of the qawwaali are hard hitting as well as amusing.

The qawwaali under discussion is from “Jungle Princess”(1958). It is an obscure song from an obscure movie. This movie was directed by A R Zameendaar for Navshakti Films, Bombay. This costume drama (veshbhoosha pradhan film) had Kamran, Shanta Kumari (Neeru), Baburao, Indira, Habeeb, Leela Gupte, Janibabu Qawwaal, Shakila Bano, Fazal, Neelofar, Amina, Sheikh, Funny Walker etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Full details are known only for one song, viz for the song under discussion. Singers of other songs are not known though it is mentioned in HFGK that Mubarak Begam and Jaani Babu qawwaal were the singers in the movie.

Here is this qawwaali for “Jungle Princess”(1958). It is sung by Mubarak Begam and Jaani Babu qawwaal, assisted by female and male chorus. The great lyrics are by Aziz Ghaazi. Music is composed by the duo of Bipin Mehboob.

The song is a forgotten gem. One expects a qawwaali to contain only heavey duty Persian/ Urdu stuff but it is a “modern” qawwaali far ahead of its time (1958) and it contains English words in it as well. 🙂

1958! So this qawwaali was created exactly 60 years ago !

Here is this fantastic qawwaali from “Jungle Princess”(1958) as the 14500th song in the blog. Only the audio of the song is available. Video would have been available had the movie done well like say “Al Hilal”(1958) which had also come in the same year and whose iconic qawwaali had become the 5000th song in the blog back in 2011 !

Only the audio is available and let us be thankful for that. My guess is that this song was picturised on Shaikila Babo Bhopali and Jani Babu Qawwaal.

With this song, “Jungle Princess”(1958) makes its debut in the blog.

This song also serves as a tribute to Mubarak Begam whose remembrance day falls tomorrow (18 july 2018). We will pay our tribute to her tomorrow as well with some more of her great songs. For now, here is this 14500th song in the blog. As always, I thank one and all for their continued support for a decade (it will be a decade two days from now). It had been a reat journey. We had achieved 145 centuries in this one decade. Let us see what the future has in store for us. Just how many more centuries do we have in store and in how many more years. Let us take it one song at a time like how we have done so far and who knows where we may end up with. It has been a great one decade for me as well as the fellow travellers of this musical bandwagon. Let this musical bandwagon continue to roll on and on !

And now, please listen to this song. If you are like me, you may find yourself listening to this song again and again. And that is what I am doing at this moment as I type out these finishing lines of this article.

“Amardeep” was a movie that was made by Shivaji Productions and directed by T. Prakash Rao in 1958. It was a remake of the Tamil “Amara Deepam” (1956) which also directed by T. Prakash Rao; which itself was a remake of the 1942 English film “Random Harvest” which was based on the novel of the same name by James Hilton. There was also a Bengali movie in 1957 “Harano Sur” on the same story. (all this information is thanks to Wikipedia) So that means there were audiences for this kind of sentimental stories.

The Tamil and Hindi versions had Padmini playing the character of Roopa who takes care of the hero- Dev Anand in Hindi and Shivaji Ganesan in Tamil- after he meets with an accident and forgets his past with Vyjayantimala (in Hindi) and Savitri (in Tamil). I had heard from my dad that he had seen the movie at the time of its release -first day first show and when the Tamil version released in a morning show (that was the name for the 9 or 10 A.M. show) he saw that too. I don’t remember what his review of the movie was but he had told me that the Hindi movie had 12 songs in it; the most popular one being “dekh humein awaaz na dena o bedard zamaane” having two versions.

Before I wrote this post, I sat through the movie. A decent movie, not exactly a tear-jerker but full of emotions on the part of the central characters. Plus, we have Pran putting in an act of possessive and hot- tempered “mangetar” (fiancé) of Vyjayantimala. So, there is scope for little fisticuffs at the climax. Then we also are surprised by the fact that the heroines are sisters who are separated in their childhood as the father gives away the younger daughter for cash to a wealthy man so that he can treat his sick elder daughter. And when the sisters, who are in love with the same man realise this, the elder one sacrifices her love and conveniently comes in the way when Pran fires at Dev Anand. There is a strained comedy track involving Johnny Walker and Mukri (which we could have done without). I hope this gives a brief idea about what the movie was all about. ??

There was one more reason for me to sit through this movie. I was trying to locate a song and its relevance in the movie. The song if it had ever been shot should have appeared here at 43:35 or thereabouts of the movie as we can see Dev and Vyjayantimala roaming around a mela and she has got some balloons in her hand. I was also trying to get the balloons (gubbaare) as it is the birthday of a keen follower of the blog. We also call him our in-house encyclopedia. Our dear Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukh turns a year younger today(9 june 2018).

Wishing him a musical journey with us forever with this song by a singer- music composer about whom he has provided us vast information. Rajinder Kishan is the lyricist. It has an “Eena meena deka” feel to it. Specially the opening and interlude music piece. I would love to know if it was ever picturised, if so on whom and if not why such a lively song was left out of the movie, it would have lightened the proceedings.


Song-Le lo le lo gubbaare (Amardeep)(1958) Singer-C Ramchandra, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

“Milan” (1958) was directed by Kedar Kapoor for N C Films, Bombay. The movie had Ait, Nalini Jaywant, Nishi, Daisy Irani, Maruti, Narbada Shanker, Jagdish Kanwal, Helen, Tiwari etc in it.

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

Here is the fifth song from “Milan” (1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi and Geeta Dutt. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. The song is a chhed-chhad song between spouses.

Lyrics

o maina kaha ji

o
bada dard hai sar mein
zara sar ko daba do
beemaar ko apne aanchal ki hawa do

mardon ke dil ko ye rog hai puraana

ye mausam hai suhaana
achcha nahin yoon kisi se roothh jaana

o aaya jo gussa

haaye aur bhi aa gayi gaalon pe laali

jaag uthhegi ye duniya jab doongi duhaai

tu biwi hai meri ye jaane sab zamaana
biwi hai meri ye jaane sab zamaana
o biwi ji

seeda nahin hai roothhon ko manaana o miyaan ji

“Piya Milan” (1958) was directed by Raghunath for R R Productions Madras. This movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Raja Sulochana, M N Rajam, Helen, Reeta, Shreeram, V Nagiah, T S Baliah,P S Veerappa, Thangavelu, Chandrababu, T K Ramchandran, G A K Dewar etc in it.

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

Here is the third song from “Piya Milan” (1958) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by P Ramesh Naidu.

The link of the song shows this song being picturised on Vyjyanti Mala. The picturisation somehow does not appear synchronised with the song. I wonder if the audio of the song is superimposed on video of some other song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter.

I have not been able to get the lyrics right to my satisfaction at a few places. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Yaad aa ke hardam sataaye (Piya Milan)(1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-P Ramesh Naidu

Lyrics

yaad aa ke hardam sataaye
aaj taqdeer bhi luti hongi
aa re
yaad aa ke hardam sataaye

lo ham unke armaan liye
lo ham unke armaan liye
vo kyun hardam khayaalon mein hain
o birha ka sangam tadpaaye hamen
birha ka sangam tadpaaye hamen
ae dil kyun tum hairaan ho
tumhi bol do
yaad aa ke hardam sataaye

matwaala rangeela phool ye
pal bhar mein manva ko chheen le
matwaala rangeela phool ye
pal bhar mein manva ko chheen le
udaas wo kar daale
udaas wo kar daale
vo door se maare
??
yaad aa ke hardam sataaye
aaj taqdeer bhi luti hongi
aa re
yaad aa ke hardam sataaye

Song-Hanste ho taaron tum (Maaya Baazaar)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

aaja re saajna
meri preet pukaare
aaja re ae ae

hanste ho taaron tum
hanste ho taaron tum
kisi ka pyaar rota hai
mera sansaar rota hai
hanste ho taaron tum
kisi ka pyaar rota hai
mera sansaar rota hai

tumse bichhadna hai to phir kaise jiyenge hum
tumse bichhadna hai to phir kaise jiyenge hum
aansu zehar se kam nahin
kaise piyenge hum
haaye kaise piyenge hum
dukhta hai dil jiska
wo sau sau baar rota hai
mera sansaar rota hai
hanste ho taaron tum
kisi ka pyaar rota hai
mera sansaar rota hai

chanda pe daali raat ne taaron ki varmaala
chanda pe daali raat ne taaron ki varmaala
kismat ne meri maang ko kaanton se bhar daala
haaye kaanton se bhar daala
muska raha chanda
mera singaar rota hai
mera sansaar rota hai
hanste ho taaron tum
kisi ka pyaar rota hai
mera sansaar rota hai

Song-Jaa jaa re chhaliya (Maaya Baazaar)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

ja ja re chhaliya kanhaiya
ja ja re chhaliya
kaisa jaadu kiya man moh liya
toone aisi bajaai baansuri
ja ja re chhaliya kanhaiya
ja ja re chhaliya

thha andhiyaara
gahri dhaara
thha andhiyara
gahri dhaara
aage badha na jaaye
badli ghumdi yamuna umdi
pita bahut ghabraaye
pair chhuye aur raah dikhaaye
pair chhuye aur raah dikhaaye
kaisi hai ye jaadugari
ja ja re chhaliya kanhaiya
ja ja re chhaliya
kaisa jaadu kiya
man moh liya
toone aisi bajaai baansuri
ja ja re chhaliya kanhaiya
ja ja re chhaliya

chheen ke baalak abhimaani ne
jabhi maarna chaaha
tabhi aag maaya ki vaani
sun ke kans ghabraaya
nat-naagar ka khel na jaane
nat-naagar ka khel na jaane
duniya badi hai baawri
ja ja re chhaliya kanhaiya
ja ja re chhaliya

ik din toone maati khaai
leela nayi dikhaai
ho o
ik din toone maati khaayi
leela nayi dikhaai
mukh mein teenon lok dekh kar
chaunki yashoda maai
tera bachpan hai man bhaawan
tera bachpan hai man bhaawan
soorat hai teri saanwri
ja ja re chhaliya kanhaiya
ja ja re chhaliya

kaaliayadah ke naag se gopi gokul ke nar naari
naagnaath ne jal mein koode baalak krishn muraari
apne bhakton ki raksha mein
apne bhakton ki raksha mein
deri kabhi bhi na kari
ja ja re chhaliya kanhaiya
ja ja re chhaliya
atyaachaari kans ko jaakar mohan ne lalkaara
paap mita kar is dharti ka
prabhu ne bhaar utaara
ja ja re chhaliya
