Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ज’ – जब घड़ी बोले चार गोरी करके सिंगार ॰ ॰ ॰

॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰
तुम्हें रुकना पड़ेगा, मेरी आवाज़ सुन कर ॰ ॰ ॰

जी, आपकी आवाज़ सुन कर तो हम आज भी रुक जाते हैं।  आप खुद ही कहीं दूर हो, जहां हमारी आवाज़ शायद नहीं पहुँचती॰ ॰ ॰

Looking at the title line, I am tempted to start searching for songs which are built around the theme of the clock and  time on the clock. Yes, there are a few songs that come to mind, but then likely many of them are probably already here on the blog. Let me see.

Coming to the next letter in the alphabet for this series. The song that I have selected is a duet of Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur from the film ‘Gambler’. Not, this is not the 1971 Dev Sb starer, but an obscure and forgotten film from 1960. One song of this film is posted on the blog in July 2013. Close to five years now, that we are getting to revisit this film and add to its counter.

When I look at the detailed credits of this film, I am a bit surprised that this film is obscure and unfamiliar. The banner name is Vikas Productions from Bombay. More important, the producers of this film are Ram Kamlani and Dwarka Khosla, the latter being also the director of this film.

The star cast is quite, rather very impressive, for it includes Premnath, Shakeela, Agha, Poornima, Pran, KN Singh, Shammi, Madan Puri, Kanchanmala, Kukku, Mridula, Raja Amrohi, Jai Kumar, Meena, Ram Kamlani. Hmmm, a Premnath and Shakeela starrer in the late 1950s. . . should have been a better known film.

Anyway, seven songs listed. All songs from the pen of Prem Dhawan and music by Chitragupt, assisted by Dilip Dholakia. The song itself has a peculiar signature – a long pause of silence in the middle of the last word in last lines of the mukhda and the antaraas. I can’t recall a similar tune design for a song in Hindi films.

The song is a ‘nok-jhonk’ song – the gentleman says something to offend the lady to start with, she complains about it, he retracts and apologizes, and then all is well once again. And the planned tryst at 4 O’Clock is very much on. The pause becomes so noticeable, as the rest of song is quite fast paced. As I said, a peculiar tune design experimented by Chitragupt. A fun song, I am sure you will enjoy.

Song – Jab Ghadi Bole Chaar Gori Kar Ke Singaar  (Gambler) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt
Mohammed Rafi + Suman Kalyanpur

Lyrics

jab ghadi bole chaar

jab baje paune chaar

haan samjhi
yun na khota jaan ri tu
hum mardon ki baat ko
tu boley to aaun main
paidal aadhi raat ko
oo oo oo oo
achha maani teri baat
thank you

“Qaatil”(1960) was produced by N N Sippy and D R Chandra and directed by Muhammad Hussain for Prithvi Pictures, Bombay. This “crime” movie had Premnath, Chitra, Heeralal, Lalita Pawar, Kamal Mehra, Renu Makad, Shaam Kumar, Madhumati, Meena Parel, Dhondhu, Kamal Mohan, Balaram, Najma, Nazeer Kashmiri etc in it.

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

Here is the third song from “Qaatil”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is a duet which is sung by Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nashaad.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. The song appears to be a romantic song picturised on the lead pair. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ग’ – गोरी नागन बन के ना चला करो॰ ॰ ॰

याद ना जाये बीते दिनों की ॰ ॰ ॰

Some solace that we have a treasure of your songs to live by. Else the memories of the past would have been a difficult thing to live with.

The 1960 film ‘Naache Naagin Baaje Been’ is turning out to be a treasure hunt. The film is packed with such wonderful melodies. I pick today’s 9th song of the series from this film.

On screen this song is performed by Chandrashekhar and Kum Kum. Kum Kum is at her bewitching best in this dance sequence, as she is in practically all dances she has performed on screen. Throughout the entire dance sequence, one does not see her let up the ‘बलखाना’ as she takes on the challenge thrown by the hero, that she should not move like a ‘नागन’ – wonderfully executed dance steps.

The song is from the pen of Majrooh Sb, and the lilting composition is from the mind of Chitragupt. Enjoy this wonderful song, and the enchanting dance that accompanies it.

[Author Note: There are three lines in the second antaraa, that have been spliced out, most likely a damaged portion of the original celluloid film. I tried to check out more video versions of this song, but apparently, this error seems to be very old, and is propagating through all available versions that I could check quickly. I then tried to bring in the audio of this song. However unfortunately, the audio version of this song from the 78 rpm recordings contains only two antaraas. The antaraa that is not present in the audio version, is the very antaraa that has the missing lines in the video. So no luck. 😦 🙂 .]

Song – Gori Naagan Ban Ke Na Chala Karo (Naache Naagin Baaje Been) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Chitragupt

“Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) was produced and directed by B S Ranga for Vikram Productions, Madras. This movie had Raja Sulochana, Ranjan, Sowcar Janki, Sriram, Rajagopal etc in it. It appears from the cast that this movie may have been a remake of some South Indian movie though HFGK is silent about this fact.

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

Here is the second song from “Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Shreeram Saaz is the lyricist. Music is composed by Md Shafi.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. The song sounds like a “chhaayaageet” song, best heard late at night when everyone is asleep.


Song-Ye chaand ye sitaare yoon kar rahe ishaare(Mohabbat Ki Jeet)(1960) MD-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-S R Saaz, MD-Md Shafi

Today is 14 march 2018. It was on this day 87 years ago , viz 14 march 1931 that a movie that talked in Hindi (Hindustani) was shown for the first time in Bombay. I don’t think that people those days has any idea that it was an event that would change the lives of Indians as few things had done before. In fact, the industry that would get created as a result would go on to influence not just Indians, but non Indians as well. The Industry, now called Hindi film industry or Bollywood is a shining example of the soft power that India has gone on to wield.

I sometimes try to visualise how things were there in India on 14 march 1931. Very few modern day amenities that we take for granted today were available those days. Trains were there, electricity had arrived, and radio was invented a few years earlier. That was all. There were no telephones, no TV, no communication networks that we take for granted today. The fact that movies that talked may have been known to people in Bombay, but the news must have spread to other parts of the country rather slowly.

There were no dedicated movie halls to show films. That would come up subsequently and they would become important landmarks of the city.

Silent movies were already being produced and exhibited at that time in good number and there were many people (most people in fact) who may have felt that these talking movies was a passing fad that would die down and people would continue watching silent movies. In fact, silent movies continued to be made and exhibited till 1934. Talkies gradually gained acceptance at the cost of silent movies which finally stopped being made after 1934.

Coming to talkies, Hindustani movies were quickly followed by talkies in other major languages, and with time some of them would go on to become nearly as major and influential as the Hindustani movie industry. Ideas and personnel from one industry would find use in other language industries as well.

Movies evolved with time. Initially the stories were mythological/ religious/ fairy tales, then one found movies with social themes/ patriotic themes etc becoming popular. Stunt movies, that were considered low brow stuff, would become stuff of mainstream movies later. 🙂

Things have come a long way in 87 years. Now people are in an era where they can watch movies of their choices in the comfort of their homes, and what is more they can share these movies with others from the comforts of their homes !

On 14 march 1931, Movies were one of the very few sources of public recreation. Today there are plenty. 87 years onwards now, I am watching a T20 cricket match between India and Bangladesh played at Colombo, while located in North India. 87 years ago, there was no Bangladesh, no TV, no T20 cricket. 🙂

It is this distraction that has prevented me from posting more song posts today than what I would have liked. Nevertheless, now that there is innings break, I am utilising the opportunity to post this article, just the second article for today.

This song is from “Do Aadmi”(1960). It is sung by Geeta Dutt. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Posting of this song tonight is prompted by the fact that SN Tripathi, the music director of this song was born this day in 1913.

Only the audio of this song is available. This movie, which was directed by Dwarka Khosla for Vikas Productions, Bombay, had Jairaj, Shashikala, Jeewankala, Kammo, Rammurthy, Eruch Tarapore, Lamanrao, Jagdish Kamal, Shiv Dutt, Sayyad, Daya Devi, Meera Parel etc in it. The song sounds like a bar dance song, that may have been picturised on one of the many ladies in the cast who fit the bill. Interestingly, I find that the five songs of this movie had five diffetrent female playback singers singing them ! So it is difficult to guess which playback singer sang for whom. I request our knowledgeable readers to help throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

The song itself is quite nice to listen to. It is just the song that one would love to listen to at night.

Blog Day : 3520 Post No. : 14137

Today, March 8th is the 97th birth anniversary of Sahir Ludhianvi, one of my favourite poet-lyricists. Before him, there were other eminent Urdu poets such as Arzoo Lucknowi, Safdar Aah Sitapuri, Behzad Lucknowi, Josh Malihabadi etc who had been associated with the Hindi film industry sometime or the other. But it was Sahir Ludhianvi who clicked with the Hindi film industry as a poet and raised the status of the lyricists.  Eventually, he created such a status for himself in the Hindi film industry that some of the established producers/directors first took him on board before finalising the music directors for their films.

The traumatic childhood and the failed love affairs coupled with his leftist ideological leanings, are reflected in his ghazals and nazms published in the book ‘Talkhiyaan‘ (‘Bitternesses’) in 1945. However, it was his association with the Hindi film industry which gave him the opportunity to write film songs in the poetic form covering almost all the facets of human life. Some samples below:

Romantic songs

Kashti Ka Khamosh Safar Hai
isi Patthar Ki Moorat Se Muhabbat Ka Iraada Hai

‘Togetherness in Love’ songs

Tum Apna Ranj o Gham Apni Pareshaani Mujhe De Do
Dukh Aur Sukh Ke Raaste Baney Hain Sab Ke Waaste

Songs on Women’s plights

Aurat Ne Janam Diya Mardon Ko
Aurat Ko Faqat Jism Samajh Lete Hain

Songs of Hypocrisy

Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai
Kyaa Miliye Aise Logon Se Jinki Fitrat Chhupi Rahe

Satirical songs

Cheen o Arab Hamaara Hindustaan Hamaara
Aasmaan Pe Hai Khuda Aur Zameen Pe Hum

Fun songs

Dil Ye Kya Cheez Hai
Chaahe Koi Khush Ho Chaahe Gaaliyaan Hazaar De

Teasing Love songs

Hum Aapki Aankhon Mein Is Dil Ko Basaa Den To
Uden Jab Jab Zulfen Teri

Khushnuma (feel good) songs

Thandi Hawaayen Lehraa Ke Aayen
Phaili Huyi Hain Sapnon Ki Baahen

Motivational/Inspirational Songs

Raat Ke Raahi Thhak Mat Jaana
Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhaata Chala Gaya

Mother-Child songs

Tu Mere Pyaar Ka Phool Hai
Tere Bachpan Ko Jawaani Ki Dua Deti Hoon

In addition, Sahir Sahab also wrote other genres such as qawwali,  patriotic songs, devotional songs etc. A question is raised as to what is so unique about  Sahir Sahab’s songs? His contemporary Urdu poets like Shakeel Badayuni, Majrooh Sultanpuri and Kaifi Azmi also wrote many genres of songs for the films. In my view, the main difference was that Sahir Sahab’s songs were  an extension of his literary poetry (adabi shaayari) while the others wrote mostly lyrics for the songs. While Majrooh Sultanpuri and Kaifi Azmi rarely mixed the PWA ideology in their film songs, Sahir Sahab’s songs covered such thoughts even in some fun songs in films like  ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954), ‘Funtoosh’ (1956) and  ‘Pyaasa’ (1957).

We  should be thankful to Sahir Sahab for joining the Hindi film industry. Had he remained away from Hindi film industry and concentrated only on the literary Urdu poetry, we would have certainly missed the range of his poetry in the Hindi film songs. Surely, he would have joined the list of the Urdu poets of pains, bitterness and sorrows like Mir Taqi Mir,  Faani Badayuni, Majaaz Lucknowi,  Sudarshan Faakir etc. But in this process, he would have missed ‘the poet of mass appeal’ tag.

Again, I would say that Sahir Sahab’s  association with Hindi film industry perforce made him to look for the brighter side of the life. Note how he starts one of the songs in ‘Shagoon’ (1964) in a pessimistic note and ends with optimism:

zindagi zulm sahi zabr sahi gham hi sahi
dil ki fariyaad sahi rooh kaa maatam hi sahi

going on to

ham hain maayoos magar itne bhi maayoos nahin. . .
ek na ek din to yah ashkon ki ladi tootegi
ek na ek din to chhatenge ye ghamon ke baadal
ek na ek din to ujaale ki kiran phootegi

Sahir Sahab first came to Bombay (now Mumbai) in January 1946. He began his filmy career in the same year with an assignment to write songs for the film ‘Aazaadi Ki Raah Par’ under the baton of music director GD Kapoor. He wrote 3 songs for this film. (The film’s release was delayed and it got released only in 1948). After this assignment, there is a gap of about 3 years in his filmy career. When partition happened he returned to Lahore in September 1947 to search for and bring back his mother. Sometime in the middle of 1948, he had to hurriedly leave Lahore. After returning, he first came to Delhi, where he occupied himself editing an Urdu periodical for about a year. In May 1949, he came to Bombay with a resolve to become a song writer for the films.

The greatest handicap for Sahir Sahab in pursuing his career in film industry was that he was already a popular Urdu poet with his published work ‘Talkhiyaan’ (1945). The film industry is generally wary of poets’ capabilities of writing lyrics for the songs for given situations in the films. After struggling for about 2 years, he got the opportunity to write songs for the film ‘Naujawaan’ (1951) under SD Burman. The box office success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) in the same year with its hit songs gave a boost to his career in the film industry. During 1951-57, Sahir Sahab majorly worked with SD Burman (138 songs out of 218).

Sahir Ludhianvi’s ‘obsession’ to place his song writings above the contributions of  singers and music directors seems to have come into open sometime in mid 1950s when he had arguments with Lata Mangeshkar on this issue. It is a moot point whether it was Lata Mangeshkar who refused to sing his songs or other way round. But the end result was that Sahir lost 9 out of 11 films because producers/directors will have Lata Mangeshkar rather than Sahir Ludhianvi [Source: Javed Akhtar on TV programme ‘Classic Legends’]. Two films which remained with him were ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) and ‘Naya Daur’ (1957) in which Lata Mangeshkar had no songs. But it was these two films which gave him the status as a song writer par excellence. Here Sahir Sahab proved his point that his songs could still become popular without Lata Mangeshkar.

However, the success of these two films also resulted in the termination of Sahir Sahab’s  association with two top music directors at that time – SD Burman and OP Nayyar due to clash of egos. Again, the issue raised was that it was his songs more than the music that these two films became hits. In support of his claims, he started quoting his fees for song writings in a film one rupee above the amount agreed to be paid to the music director of that film. With his tiffs with the top playback singer and two top music directors of that time, many in the Hindi film industry must have felt at that time that Sahir Sahab committed a hara-kiri and his filmy career was doomed.

While Sahir Sahab eventually made up with Lata Mangeshkar, now it was the time for him to prove that his songs can still become popular in the films without the services of the commercially top rated music directors of that time. He roped in music director Khayyam for ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958),  N Dutta for  ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959) and Roshan for ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960). While the first film did not fare well at the box office, its songs became very popular. The other two films were super hits on the box office.  In this process, Sahir Sahab not only retained his eminent position in the film industry as a song writer, he became instrumental in giving boost the sagging careers of music directors, Khayyam, Roshan and later  Ravi (‘Gumraah’, 1963).

In the 1960s, he worked mainly with the second line music directors but had super hit films like ‘Hum Dono’ (1961), ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), ‘Gumraah’ (1963), ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (1963), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Kaajal’ (1965), ‘Waqt’ (1965), ‘Hamraaz’ (1967), ‘Aankhen’ (1968). Some of the films which  did not fare well at the box office but their songs are remembered even today were ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963), ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), ‘Ghazal’ (1964), ‘Shagoon’ (1964) and ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967).

There is no denying the fact that there is something magical in Sahir Sahab’s song writings. Most of his songs struck a chord with the audience and the listeners. My own experiences in listening to some of his songs are that his lyrics are the characteristic that first registered in my mind, for most of his songs.

There is a quote in the fashion world – the dress must follow the body and not the body following the shape of the dress. If this quote is extended to film songs, one can say that a beautiful body (lyrics) brings out the best in the dress (music). Sahir Sahab believed that it is the beautiful poetry which brings best of the music composition. He became more forthcoming in keeping his song writings ahead of the music director after the success of ‘Pyaasa’ (1957). In  my view, he was not off the mark, particularly for his popular songs.

In my younger days, when I had listened to “Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai” and “Jinhen Naaz Hai Hind Par Wo Kahaan Hain”, the lyrics came to my attention first because they were soulful, momentarily forgetting the contributions of playback singer and the music director. The reason was that the first verse itself created interest in me to listen to the full lyrics. That SD Burman composed the orchestration with bare minimum musical instruments and Rafi sang in a soft voice are the recognition of the importance of the lyrics of these two songs. Probably, this was also the intention of Guru Dutt as a director.

“Jaane Kya Tu Ne Kahi Jaane Kya Maine Suni”  brought the singer  (Geeta Dutt) to the fore in my mind because of her seductive rendition. Yet, he is successful in bringing the words also in the forefront despite the fact that he had written the song on a pre-set tune. The reason is that this song has been written in short verses – mostly within 4 words. In the context of today’s world, one can say the song has been written in Whatsapp language – short yet effective to convey the message.

Even the dream sequence song, “Hum Aapki Aankhon Mein Is Dil Ko Basaa Den To” which was said to be added in the film on the insistence of film distributor/financier, the imageries used  in the song for teasing are unique and remain in the mind of the listeners. This was basically a ‘relief’ song for the audience in the midst of sad and depressing theme of the film. Generally, such type of ‘addition’ of the song goes out of mind quickly but this song became unforgettable.

I will stop analysing the remaining songs of ‘Pyaasa’ at this stage. Sahir Sahab’s list of beautiful film songs is endless. In fact, one can attempt to write a separate article on each of Sahir Sahab’s  films about his songs especially of his films like ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958), ‘Dhool Kaa Phool’ (1959), ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), ‘Ghazal’ (1964), ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), ‘Waqt’ (1965) etc

In the 70s, Sahir Sahab continued to be in demand but his charisma in his song writings seems to have somewhat waned. This could be because of two main reasons. First, he was basically a romantic poet and the romantic theme in the films had given way for action-oriented themes with angry man image.  It appears he had a premonition about this when he first wrote the nazm “Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar Hoon“.

Secondly, after the death of his mother in 1976,  he seems to have lost interest in song writing. Also,  his PWA friends were advising him to concentrate more on writing literary poetry. It is said that he had almost decided to reduce his commitments for song writing and concentrate more on literary poetry. However, before he could complete his films’ commitments, a massive heart attack took him away from us on October 25, 1980 at the age of 59.

Sahir Sahab’s life can be summed up in one verse of his  nazm Faraar published in ‘Talkhiyaan’ (1945):

ishq naakaam sahi zindagi naakaam nahin 

Sahir Sahab’s love affairs failed but he lived his life at his own terms and immensely contributed to the making of the golden era of Hindi film music. During the three decades of his association with Hindi film industry, he wrote 732 songs in 114 films worked with 30 music directors. Details are given in the table below:

*Note: Includes 3 songs of ‘Laila Majnu’ (1976).

[Source: List of film songs of Sahir Ludhianvi as appendix to ‘Sahir Ludhianvi – People’s Poet’ – Akshay Manwani (2013).]

It can be observed that out of 732 songs Sahir Ludhianvi wrote during his filmy career, as many as 479 songs (65%) were written for just 5 music director – S D Burman (138), Ravi (131), N Dutta (109), Roshan (59) and  Khayyam (42). He had no occasion to write songs for big names like Naushad and Shankar-Jaikishan and the second line music directors like Salil Chaudhury, SN Tripathi etc.

On the occasion of 97th birth anniversary of Sahir Ludhianvi, I have chosen the song “Hum Jab Chalen To Ye Jahaan Jhoome”, the only song he wrote for the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ (1960). This is a motivational song for the youngsters and is aptly sung by Mohammed Rafi under the baton of Usha Khanna.

ना जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया॰ ॰ ॰

The touch was of magic. But the real life is so different from reel life. A career that spanned well over five decades, the opportunities for this magic touch weren’t many.

Remembering Naqsh Lyallpuri on the anniversary of his birth (24th Feb).

The full real name of this poet was Jaswant Rai Sharma. He was born in 1928, in the Lyallpur town (now in Pakistan, and renamed to Faislabad). His father was an engineer and he wanted young Jaswant to follow his footsteps and be an engineer. His mother passed away when he was only six, and his father remarried. As the young child grew through his school and college days, his interest in literature became evident and prominent. He drifted apart from his father, for the obvious reason that his father did not look kindly at the literary interest of his son, whom he had dreamt of being another engineer in the family.

When he was 18, he went to work with Hero Publishers, a publishing house in Layallpur. Just about a year later, partition happened, and he moved with family to Lucknow. His literary and poetic interests and activities met with a stern disapproval from his father. The drift made the young Jaswant leave home and move to Bombay, in search of a career as a songwriter. He took on the pen name of ‘Naqsh’ – meaning an imprint or an impression, and added Lyallpuri, being the town of his birth.

The early years, rather the early decades were just a struggle. He first started working with Times of India as a proof reader, and later got an employment with the Post Office. As for literary activities, he was drawn into the theatre activities to start with and started writing stage plays. Here, he came in touch with actor Ram Mohan, who in turn, introduced him to Jagdish Sethi. After reading some of his poetical works, Jagdish Sethi gave the first opportunity to write for films. He (Jagdish Sethi) was in the process of making the film ‘Jaggu’, which got released in 1952. He introduced Naqsh to the music director of the film – Hansraj Behl. And Naqsh got to write one song for this film.

The lyricist and the MD struck up a good friendship, and Hansraj Behl called upon Naqsh to write for him again in ‘Pensioner’ (1954) and ‘Mast Qalandar’ (1955). And so the career train started to move, albeit quite slowly. In 1955, he got his first independent assignment as a a lyricist for the film ‘Teen Sardar (1955), for which he wrote 6 songs. In ones and twos, songs written by him started getting popular. However, recognition as an impressive songwriter eluded him till the latter part of 1960s.  In 1968 came the film ‘Teri Talaash Mein’. The film did not do well, but its songs became very popular. With music by Sapan-Jagmohan, songs like “Kho Diye Hain Sanam Teri Talash Mein” in Asha Bhosle’s voice, the Rafi rendition of “Teri Awaaz Ki Jaadugari Se”, another one by Asha Bhosle – “Raaze-Dil Hamse Kaho Hum To Koi Ghair Nahin” etc. became very well known.

From here starts the ascendency of Naqsh Sb’s popularity. Continuing from this 1968 musical hit, he found the popular pulse with songs like “Main To Har Mod Par Tujhko Doonga Sadaa” (‘Chetna’, 1970), “Sajaaya Na Karo Phool Baalon Pe” (‘Gunaahon Ke Raaste’, 1970), “Jindagi Ke Mod Par Hum Tum Mile. . .” (‘Mann Tera Tan Mera’, 1971), “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan” (‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Le Chalo, Le Chalo, Ab Kahin Le Chalo” (‘Maan Jaaiye’, 1972), “Kai Sadiyon Se Kai Janmon Se” (‘Milaap’, 1973), “Rasm e Ulfat Ko Nibhaayen To Nibhaayen Kaise” (‘Dil Ki Raahen’, 1973), “Ye Shaam Hai Dhuaan Dhuaan” (‘Ek Naao Do Kinaare’, 1973), “Mere Mann Pawan Sang Udd Chal” (‘Ek Naari Do Roop’,1973), “Do Honth Hile Ek Geet Suna” (‘Nai Duniya Naye Log’, 1973), “Ulfat Mein Zamaane Ki Har Rasm Ko Thukraao” (‘Call Girl’, 1974), “Har Janam Mein Hamaara Milan” (‘Kaagaz Ki Naao’, 1975), “Tumhen Ho Na Ho Mujhko To. . .” (‘Ghraonda’, 1977), “Tumhen Dekhti Hoon To Lagta Hai Aise” (‘Tumhaare Liye’, 1978), “Yeh Mulaaqaat Ek Bahaana Hai” (‘Khandaan’, 1979), “Phir Teri Yaad Naye Deep Jalaane Aayi” (‘Aayee Teri Yaad’, 1980), “Maana Teri Nazar Mein Tera Pyaar Hum Nahin” (‘Ahista Ahista’, 1981), “Na Jaane Kye Hua, Jo Tu Ne Chhoo Liya” and “Pyaar Ka Dar Hai, Meetha Meetha, Pyaara Pyaara” (‘Dard’, 1981) – an many more.

In 2005, when Naushad Sb came on board for composing music for the film ‘Taj Mahal’, then Naqsh Lyallpuri was called upon to write the songs. Again, then in 2007, when Khaiyyaam Sb was scoring the music for the film ‘Yatra’, Naqsh Sb wrote the songs. A journey of almost six decades, that started in 1952 with the song “Agar Teri Aankhon Se Aankhen Mila Doon”, continued into next millennium, with elan.

In 2016, he had a fall, and a hip bone fracture. He was hospitalized in October 2016, and never did recover from this injury. He passed away on 22nd Jan, 2017.

Dhala Din Aise, Doob Gaya Jaise
Jalta Sooraj Raat Ke Gehre Andhere Mein…  (‘Laal Kothi’, 1978)

The song I present today is from an extremely obscure film from 1960 – ‘Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar’, which also carried the alternate title as ‘Black Rider’. The film makes its debut on our blog today. This film is directed by Mehmood, for the production banner of Screen Arts. The cast of actors of this costume drama film is listed briefly as Kaamran, Krishna Kumari, Habeeb, Sham, and Najma. The film has five songs listed, all penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Harbans.

A very delightful song of aspirations of love, it is a lovely rendition by Sudha Malhotra.

ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

main na samjhoon
main na jaanoon
koi bataaye mujhko kya ho gaya hai
jhukti jaayen
meri palken
baithe bithaae mera dil kho gaya hai
dil kho gaya hai
rang aankhon mein jhalke khumaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

chupke chupke
dil mein apne
maine basaa li hai duniya niraali
mere armaan
khil gaye hain
jabse mila hai mujhe bagiya ka maali
bagiya ka maali
haal poochho na dil e beqaraar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

pyar ban ke
aane waala
laaya hai mere liye naghme khushi ke
zindgagi ne
rang badla
ab na lagenge mujhe din pheeke pheeke
din pheeke pheeke
yehi mausam hai mere singaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

मैं ना समझूँ
मैं ना जानूँ
कोई बताए मुझे क्या हो गया है
झुकती जाएँ
मेरी पलकें
बैठे बिठाये मेरा दिल खो गया है
दिल खो गया है
रंग आँखों में झलके खुमार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

चुपके चुपके
दिल में अपने
मैंने बसा ली है दुनिया निराली
मेरे अरमां
खिल गए हैं
जबसे मिला है मुझे बगिया का माली
बगिया का माली
हाल पूछो न दिल ए बेक़रार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

प्यार बनके
आने वाला
लाया हैं मेरे लिए नग़में खुशी के
ज़िंदगी ने
रंग बदला
अब ना लगेंगे मुझे दिन फीके फीके
दिन फीके फीके
यही मौसम है मेरे सिंगार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
