Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 63
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago, I had devised a plan, and I was able to implement it to the full most of the days. The plan was to cover six songs everyday for three days, and then seven songs on the fourth day. That meant the blog added 25 songs in four days. The same cycle got repeated and the blog addeded 25 songs every four days. At the end of fpur such cycles, the blog would add 100 songs in 16 days. In summary, 4 x 25=100, where 25=(6+6+6+7)

The date ten years ago (29 august 2010) was one of those days when seven songs were discussed. Here are the details of these seven songs :-

Blog song post number Song Movie-Year Remarks
2864 Haay mera dil le gaya koi aake ishaaron se Parbat 1952 Movie YIPPEED
2865 I love you O madam Dulhan 1958 5 songs covered (out of 8)
2866 Chaand ko dekho ji Chaand Mere Aaja 1960 6 songs covered out of 7. The seventh song too is apparently part of an already covered song
2867 Pyaase panchhi neel gagan mein geet milan ke gaayen Pyaase Panchhi 1960 5 songs covered out of 10
2868 Apni bhi kyaa zindagi hai niraali Aas Ka Panchhi 1961 YIPPEED
2869 Beta jamoore kah de duniya ko lalkaar ke Biraadari 1966 YIPPEED
2870 Chup ho aaj kaho kyaa hai baat Chhattees Ghante 1974 YIPPEED

As ca be seen from the above table, four movies have been YIPPEED and even the fifth (Chaand Mere Aaja) is apparaently already YIPPEED (let me get it checked).

So that leaves only one mo9vies , namely “Pyaase Panchhi”(1961) and “Dulhan”(1958) which are eligible for today’s blog ten year challenge.

“Pyaase Panchhi” (1961) had ten songs in it. Five of these sons have been covered in the past. Here are the details :-

Blog Day :

apni kahaani chhod jaa
kuchh to nishaani chhod jaa
kaun kahe iss or
tu phir aaye naa aaye

That is how Balraj Sahni left his mark as an outstanding method actor in most of his nearly 100 films in which he acted during the course of his 27 years of filmy career. Balraj Sahni started his filmy career as an actor almost at the same time as Dev Anand, Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor, the trinity of the golden period of Hindi film industry. But he had to struggle hard to establish himself as an actor in demand. It took him more than a decade to do so while his compatriot trinity had become the stars in early 1950s.

Balraj Sahni was very bitter about his early experiences in his filmy career. Having associated with IPTA and being a card member of the Communist Party of India, it was difficult to get roles in the films despite the success of ‘Hum Log’ (1951) and ‘Hulchul’ (1951) in which he had important roles. Those days, it was a fashion to brand any one as communist if he had difference of opinion with men of authorities. Since Balraj Sahni was already a member of Communist Party, many producers were wary of offering him roles. In a few films in which he got the roles, he was unceremoniously dropped later from the films either directly or indirectly by offering him smaller roles.

When I completed reading Balraj Sahni’s autobiography in Hindi, I was surprised as to how he got drawn into Hindi films when he had an impressive curriculum vitae before he became an actor in Hindi films. He completed his double M.A. in Hindi and English literature from Government College, Lahore and joined Shanti Niketan along with his wife, Damyanti Sahni to work with Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. He worked there as a lecturer in Hindi and English. After two years, he and his wife shifted to Sewagram in Wardha to work with Mahatma Gandhi where he also worked as teacher in the institute run in Sewagram. In 1939, with the blessing of Mahatma Gandhi, he and his wife joined BBC London as a Radio Announcer and as a producer, respectively for their Hindi services. In 1944, Balraj Sahni and his wife landed back in Mumbai and got involved in Hindi plays under IPTA. From this point of time, both he and his wife got drawn towards acting in the films, that too not by their own volitions but through Chetan Anand, their close friend.

Balraj Sahni (01/05/1913 – 13/04/1973), was born as Yudhishthir Sahni in Rawalpindi in an Arya Samaji family. His father was a successful businessman – a wholesale cloth merchant who could afford to have a summer villa in Srinagar. In 1930, after completing his matriculation, he joined Government College, Lahore for B.A. His college days coincided with the advent of talkies during which he watched many Hindi and English films. He also participated as an actor in College’s dramatic society. By the time, he had completed M.A. in Hindi and English literature, he had developed an interest in literature rather than in acting in the films.

During four years of his stay in London, Balraj Sahni watched many English plays and Russian films which he felt was ahead of American films. Through Russian films, he got introduced to Marxism and Leninism. By the time, he and his wife returned to Mumbai in 1944, they had embraced Marxism. For some time, both of them stayed at Chetan Anand’s bungalow at Bandra whom he knew from his days in Government College, Lahore. Chetan Anand was also associated with IPTA where Balraj Sahni got acquainted with K A Abbas, Krishan Chandra, Phani Mujumdar, Prem Dhavan, V P Sathe, C P Joshi among others. In IPTA, K A Abbas who was writing a play ‘Zubeida’ selected Balraj Sahni to direct it. The play became a hit. This was the start of his long association with K A Abbas.

During his IPTA days, Chetan Anand offered him and his wife major roles in his maiden film ‘Neecha Nagar’ (1946) which was in the planning stage. However, Chetan Anand was not able to arrange the finances. So, the making of the film got delayed. During the same time, Phani Mujumdar offered him a small role of the hero’s friend in ‘Insaaf’ (1946). At first, Balraj Sahni was not enthusiastic to accept the small role. It was only after Phani Majumdar assured him that in his next film ‘Door Chalen’ (1946), he would give him a major role which he kept his words. Both the films did not click at the box office.

In the meanwhile, IPTA got a licence to produce a full-length feature film which K A Abbas used it for making ‘Dharti Ke Laal’ (1946). It was IPTA’s first and the last film. Both Balraj Sahni and Damyanti Sahni got major roles in the film along with other IPTA actors. This film also failed at the box office as the film’s release coincided with communal violence in Mumbai. However, the film was critically acclaimed both nationally and internationally. Thereafter, both Balraj Sahni and Damyanti Sahni worked in ‘Gudia’ (1947) in lead roles. However, soon after the completion of the film, Damyanti Sahni who also used to work with the slum dwellers in Mumbai as a part of her social work, fell ill. Due to adverse reaction of the medicines, she died in April 1947 at a young age of 26, leaving Balraj Sahni with two kids, Parikshit and Shabnam.

A devasted Balraj Sahni soon left Mumbai and started staying in his father’s summer villa in Srinagar while his kids were sent to Rawalpindi at his parent’s house. But within few months, the communal riots on the eve of the partition made Balraj Sahni and his parents with kids to come back to Mumbai leaving everything behind. While IPTA took care of him on his second coming, he also commenced shooting for ‘Gunjan’ (1948) in which he had got the offer of the lead role opposite Nalini Jaywant when he was in Srinagar.

In 1948-49, Balraj Sahni was mostly associated with IPTA plays and communist party activities. During this period, he got married to Santosh Chandok, his cousin who was a writer and actor in IPTA. During the rehearsal of the play ‘Signalman Dulee’, all IPTA members were called to participate in a procession taken by the communist party which had taken anti-Nehru stance, branding him to be an agent of British Government. Carried away by the party line, Balraj Sahni wrote and acted in an IPTA play ‘Jaadu Ki Kursi’ which was directed by Mohan Sehgal. The play was a satire on Pandit Nehru’s policies. During this time, Communist Party took out a procession in the street of Mumbai with slogan shouting and criticising Nehru’s policies. Balraj Sahni and other IPTA members had also joined the procession. There was lathi charge and police firings. Many prominent activists of IPTA such as Balraj Sahni, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Ali Sardar Jafri, Deena Pathak etc. were arrested and imprisoned in Arthur Road jail for 2 years.

Before his arrest, Balraj Sahni had got a major role in K Asif’s film, ‘Hulchul’ (1951) on the recommendation of Dilip Kumar. Shooting of the film had commenced but Balraj Sahni was in jail. With the good offices of producer, K Asif, Balraj Sahni got permission from the Jailor to join shooting during the day time under the police escorts. Incidentally, Balraj Sahni acted in this film in the role of a Jailor. The arrangements continued until the film’s shooting was completed.

After about 6 months of imprisonment, Balraj Sahni was freed from the jail. It is not known as to how he got released from the jail in 6 months but I feel that there must be some reason for remission in his jail terms and this was not liked by his party. He found to his dismay that the party has branded him as ‘traitor’ and some of his friends and acquaintances avoided meeting him. After some time, Balraj Sahani left IPTA and Communist Party of India due to difference of opinions. Those days, any party member having put forward a different opinion than the party line, used to be branded as ‘reactionary’, ‘traitor’ etc.

Notwithstanding leaving IPTA and Communist Party, Balraj Sahni remained a committed Marxist with ‘Das Kapital’ as his reference point rather than the communist ideaology. Things began to improve in his filmy career as soon as the tag of ‘communist’ against his name was obliterated. Despite film offers coming to him on a regular basis, he could do only few films as he selected mostly socially oriented films – like the role of unemployed and sickly Raj in ‘Hum Log’ (1951), the rickshaw puller, Shambhu Maheto in ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953), the compassionate manager of an orphanage in ‘Seema’ (1955), the idealistic poet, Shrikant in ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1958), a loving elder brother in ‘Chhoti Bahen’ (1959), a committed village doctor in ‘Anuradha’ (1960), a migrant Afghani, Abdul Rehman Khan in ‘Kabuliwala’ (1961) etc. However, as he advanced in age, he started getting the character actor’s roles during which time, he mostly worked in the mainstream Hindi films.

Sometime in 1950, Chetan Anand, the head of Navketan Films, invited Balraj Sahni to write screen-play and dialogues for ‘Baazi’ (1951) which he gladly accepted because it suited to his temperament as a writer. Guru Dutt, the director wanted to start the shooting of the film even before the script was ready. Balraj Sahni made it very clear to him that he would part with screen-play and dialogues only when it is complete in all respect. It was only when he gave the screen-play and dialogues duly bound, the shooting of the film commenced. Though ‘Baazi’ (1951) was a big hit on the box office, Balraj Sahni did not draw any benefit or pleasure from it as his screen-play and dialogues were changed without his consent as was the practice by most of the directors. So, he gave up the idea of taking up the assignment of screen-play writing any more. He also directed ‘Laal Batti’ (1957), the only film as a director during his filmy career. He also worked in some Punjabi films.

By the end of 1950s, Balraj Sahni had adjusted to the unorganized way of working in Bollywood. He was once called for shooting in the morning and he was sitting in the studio throughout the day without being called for a single shot. From then onwards, he decided to carry his typewriter for shooting so that he could use his free time for writing articles and short stories for the magazines. While working in Shanti Niketan in the late 30s, Balraj Sahni was advised by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore that he should write articles and stories in Punjabi as a writer can effectively express his thoughts in his own mother tongue. Balraj Sahni took his advice seriously and learnt afresh writing in Gurumukhi.

Balraj Sahni major break through as an actor was in a neo-realistic film, ‘Dharti Ke Laal’ (1946). It was just a co-incident that his last film ‘Garam Hawa’ (1973) also happened to be a neo-realistic film. His son, Parikshit Sahni had said in an interview that the film had perfect pathos in almost every scene and dialogues delivered by his father.

And why not? If one sees the events happening in the film in a broader manner, Balraj Sahni had actually experienced them in reality. Towards the end of the film, he lost his young daughter Amina who commits suicide following her bad marriage. This had actually happened to Balraj Sahni about one year before the film’s shooting was completed. His daughter, Shabnam by his first marriage had returned to him after a divorce and died young due to a brain hemorrhage. All the pains in losing his daughter was reflected on his face in the film.

On his 60th birthday, Balraj Sahni was to make an announcement to leave the film industry and settled down in Punjab to devote rest of his life to the literature. For this, he had bought a cottage in Punjab which was being refurbished. But God wished differently. Just before a month of his 60th birthday and a day after completion of his dubbing for ‘Garam Hawa’ (1973), Balraj Sahni died of heart-attack on April 13, 1973. At the Juhu Crematorium, besides close family members, friends and film paternity, there was a large crowd of hotels workers, fishermen and others from the Juhu village whom he had financially helped to improve their living conditions.

Bhisham Sahni, Balraj Sahni’s younger brother and a renown theatre personality (remember his T V Serial, ‘Tamas’, 1988) has talked about his elder brother’s deep and abiding love for his family. He said that the scene from ‘Waqt’ (1965) in which Balraj Sahni sings ae meri zohra-zabeen, showering his love for his wife is the exact reflections of his exuberating nature which many have witnessed in his house. Sometime in mid-1960s, Balraj Sahni constructed his bungalow at Juhu mainly to accommodate his entire family under one roof and for the visiting relatives and friends.

Balraj Sahni had jokingly said in his autobiography that he got more chance to do romance with the heroines of the films when he did character actor’s roles than as a hero. One of the films in which as a hero, he romanced with Geeta Bali was ‘Sapan Suhaane’ (1961). The film was produced under the banner of K R Films which was directed by Kidar Kapoor.

jaao ji koi kya kahega

There are Hindi films in which almost all the songs have become popular. But those films are often identified with a single song in the sense that the name of the film brings back the memory of the most popular song of that film which has been stuck in the minds of the listeners for long. I give below a sample list of five films which are often identified with one of its popular songs:

Aaraam (1951): ae jaan-e-jigar dil mein samaane aajaa
Yahudi (1958): ye mera deewaanapan hai
Bambai Ka Babu (1960): chal ri sajni ab kya soche
Soorat Aur Seerat (1962): bahut diya dene waale ne tuhjko
Bandini (1963): o jaane waale ho sake to laut ke aana

The significance of these five films with songs mentioned thereagainst is that all these five songs have been sung by Mukesh and that too the only song he has rendered in these films. That is the power of Mukesh’s melonchalic voice laced with sadness. Mukesh had said in one of his interviews that if he has a choice of 10 songs to sing, out of which one is a sad song, he would reject remaining nine songs.

Today, July 22, 2020 is the 97th birth anniversary of Mukesh Chand Mathur (22/07/1923 – 27/08/1976).  Mukesh, like many of his compatriot popular playback singers needs no introduction on the blog. Moreover, there are a number of detailed posts on Mukesh in the blog. So, I will limit the coverage in this article to the stages of his zigzag filmy career which ended with a high note.

Motilal, a distant relative of Mukesh was already impressed by his singing. When Mukesh came to Mumbai, sometime  1940, Motilal placed him under the tutelage of Pandit Jagannath Prasad, a Hindustani classical vocalist, for training in singing. During the training, Mukesh became acquainted with Raj Kapoor who would occasionally come for training as a substitute for his mother who was practicing classical singing with Pandit Jagannath Prasad whenever she was free from her household work. One of those days when Mukesh was practising a particular Raag, Raj Kapoor loved his voice and felt that his own voice paled compared to Mukesh’s voice. At that time, Mukesh said to Raj Kapoor that he could take his voice. At that time, both were in their teens and I do not think that Mukesh had ever thought that one day he would become the voice of Raj Kapoor on the screen.

While his musical training was going on, Mukesh got an opportunity to work with Nalini Jaywant in a film (I guess, it was National Studio’s ‘Radhika’ 1941). However, his father did not permit him to act in the film. When the same production house was planning to make a new film for which they were looking for a young new comer as a hero opposite Nalini Jaywant, they again approached Mukesh. This time, his father permitted him to join the film. ‘Nirdosh’ (1941) became his first film in which he was an actor-singer. The film flopped.

It is well known that KL Saigal was Mukesh’s idol and had adopted his singing style. From his eagerness to become an actor, Mukesh seems to have been also obsessed with becoming a great actor-singer like KL Saigal.  Even after the failure of his first film, Mukesh tried as a side actor in ‘Dukh Sukh’ (1942), ‘Addab Arz’ (1943) and ‘Uss Paar’ (1944) but could not get success as an actor-singer.  He had almost made up his mind to return to Delhi when Motilal came to his rescue and manage to get Mukesh sing for him in ‘Pehli Nazar’ (1945).

How Mukesh got to sing his first song, “Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De” as a playback singer in ‘Pehli Nazar’ (1945) is well documented in the write-up covering the song on the blog itself. So, I will not go into it. But Mukesh was not yet out of wood then. When the film was completed and was being previewed before its release, producer-director Mazhar Khan decided to delete this song as he felt that the sad song did not suit Motilal’s personality who has been known as a flamboyant actor by his fans.

When Mukesh came to know about it, he met Mazhar Khan and requested to retain his song. Mazhar Khan said that this song was boring and it was dragging the smooth movement of the story in the film. After a lot of pleading by Mukesh, Mazhar Khan agreed to retain the song for one week after the release of the film. If the public liked the song, it would be retained in the film. Otherwise, the song would be deleted from the film. Mukesh also got some breather as due to communal riots, the release of the film was delayed. As we know now, this song became the most popular amongst the songs of the film. This song also became a turning point in the career of Mukesh as he turned to playback singing as a career rather than the actor-singer. [Source: Last Interview of Mukesh by BBC Hindi Services].

During 1945 to 1953, Mukesh concentrated on his career as a playback singer and rendered nearly 200 songs. During this time, he had become the main playback singer to actors like Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Premnath, Motilal, Prem Adib etc.

When his career as a playback singer was firmly in saddle, again the bug of becoming an actor-singer seems to have bitten him. In 1951, Mukesh had already turned producer with ‘Malhaar’ (1951). In 1953, he once again tried his luck as actor-singer in ‘Mashooqa’ (1953) opposite Suraiya. The film miserably failed at the box office. Not to be discouraged by the failure, he once again tried his luck by producing ‘Anuraag’ (1956) with himself in the lead role opposite Usha Kiran. This film also failed at the box office.

In his quest for becoming an actor-singer, Mukesh lost out both as an actor and a playback singer. But more than the failure of the films, Mukesh’s career as a playback singer was majorly affected as, due to his non-availability, music directors like Naushad shifted his preference for Mohammed Rafi and Talat Mehmood. During this period, Rafi had emerged as number one playback singer. Other music directors like SD Burman, C Ramchandra, Madan Mohan, Roshan etc had also switched over mainly to Rafi as their lead male playback singer. Even Shankar-Jaikishan had to rely on Manna Dey for Raj Kapoor in films like ‘Shri 420’ (1955) and ‘Chori Chori’ (1956) for some songs.  During 1953-56, Mukesh’s output as a playback singer (other than his own films as actor-singer) was dismally low at less than 20 songs.

In Hindi film industry, it is extremely difficult to regain the lost ground as there is constant competitions to take over the ground from those who have lost it. Mukesh had to face a lot of hardship in terms of his financial position as he had heavily lost money in his film making ventures. Added to his woes was that his mentor, Anil Biswas had almost retired as music director towards the end of 1950s. Motilal, another mentor who would demand Mukesh as his voice (he done that in ‘Jaagte Raho, 1956 when it was originally recorded in Manna Dey’s voice) was no longer doing the role of the lead actor in the films.

It was Raj Kapoor, the trusted friend of Mukesh from the days of making ‘Aag’ (1948), who had a major role in rehabilitating Mukesh as playback singer post 1956 years. Mukesh continued to sing  for Raj Kapoor in most of his films. Later on, he also became the voice for Manoj Kumar in most of his films. The popularity of the songs of films like ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958), ‘Madhumati’ (1958), ‘Anari’ (1959), ‘Chhalia’ (1960), ‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’ (1962), ‘Himalay Ki Godi Mein’ (1965) re-established as one of the foremost playback singers.  Starting with the voice of the superstars of 1940s and 50s like Motilal. Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor, Mukesh sang for the superstars of 1970s like Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan. He continued to maintain his status as one of the leading playback singers of 1970s  till his unfortunate death on August 27, 1976. Even during the emergence of Kishore Kumar as playback singer post-1970, Mukesh clocked a little over 200 songs during 1971-76 (including few songs spilling over post-1976), mainly because no other playback singers could replicate the pathos in his singing.

On the occasion of the 97th birth anniversary of Mukesh, I have selected an inspirational song, “Hai Ye Zameen Hamaari Wo Aaasmaan Hamaara” sung by him for the film ‘Saara Jahaan Hamaara’ (1961). The song is written by Anjum Jaipuri and is set to music by Baabul. I could not locate the video clip of the song on-line, but I have watched a very small video clip of the song which shows that it is a stage song picturised on Premnath.

Song – Hai Ye Zameen Hamaari Wo Aasmaan Hamaara (Saara Jahaan Hamaara) (1961) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Anjum Jaipuri, MD – Baabul

Lyrics

hai ye zameen hamaari
wo aasmaan hamaara

hum jis taraf chale hain

ना कजरे की धार
ना मोतियों के हार
ना कोई किया सिंगार 
फिर भी कितनी सुंदर हो
तुम कितनी सुन्दर हो

Yes, this song is from film ‘Mohra’ (1994). Ah but I am not bringing on the film version of the song.

This very song was earlier and originally sung by Mukesh in his inimitable voice in the sixties. The film for which he had sang never reached proper production stages. The song has since remained and gets counted amongst the many NFS that he sang. There are almost no details available about Mukesh version and hence this post will be quite short and devoid of any tables, histograms etc. 🙂

But then, I do not want to make the post too short either and so let me write something about the 1994 film which I have never seen. I am told it had a rather unexpected climax and so pondering if I should watch only the ending. 🙂

I consider myself qualified to write about the 1994 film as it is yet to make its debut on the blog which is quite surprising. There is a well-established wiki page of the movie on the net and I request interested readers to visit it for much of the details.

One of the apparent reasons as to why the song sung by Mukesh was included in the film could be probably because Viju Shah the music director of the film is the son of music director Kalyanji Virji Shah of composer duo Kalyanji Anandji. The lyric writer obviously remained Indeewar.

The film has 3-4 versions of the song sung by Pankaj Udhas and Sandhana Sargam.  All these years, I was under the impression that at least the romantic version was picturised on Raveena Tandon but it does not seem to be.

And, with such poor knowledge of “new films”, I am happy I seldom venture into this rather unfamiliar territory. I am sure more knowledgeable contributors will take up the film song and write in detail about the many versions.

As usual, I reached out to Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, the Surat based complier of Mukesh Geetkosh to see if I could get more details about the Mukesh version. He gave several leads such as searching the register where song was to be recorded, contacting any of the Kalyanji-Anandji’s orchestra team etc. He has also written to me stating that he has contacted Anandji, Indeewar, Mohnish Behl etc to get some leads but to no avail. All he remembers is the film being about Navagraha. I thank him for the continuous support and help I receive.

All these efforts of tracing the film that never took off being quite an ordeal, I decided to go ahead and represent this post on the blog. What is more important is that the complete song sung by Mukesh is available on several platforms and is a treat to listen.

Song – Na Kajre Ki Dhaar, Na Motiyon Ke Haar  (NFS-Mukesh) (1960s) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Indiwar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

na kajre ki dhaar
na motiyon ke haar
na koi kiya singaar
phir bhi kitni sunder ho
tum kitni sunder ho

na kajre ki dhaar
na motiyon ke haar
na koi kiya singaar
phir bhi kitni sunder ho
tum kitni sunder ho

tu taazgi phoolon ki
kya saadgi ka kehna
tu taazgi phoolon ki
kya saadgi ka kehna
singaar tera yauwan
yauwan hi tera gehna
teri soorat jaise moorat
main dekhoon baar baar
na kajre ki dhaar
na motiyon ke haar
na koi kiya singaar
phir bhi kitni sunder ho
tum kitni sunder ho

tera ang sachcha sona
muskaan sachche moti
tera ang sachcha sona
muskaan sachche moti
tere honth hain madhushala
tu roop ki hai jyoti
ude khushboo jab chale tu
boley to bajey sitaar
na kajre ki dhaar
na motiyon ke haar
na koi kiya singaar
phir bhi kitni sunder ho
tum kitni sunder ho

“Black Shadow”(1961) was a stunt movie which was directed by Madan Mohan Mehra for Paul Productions, Bombay. This move had Nishi, Manhar Desai, Amrit Rana, Indira Bansal, Baburao, Sudha, Ramlal, Roshan, Menaka, Naseem, Narmada Shankar, BHaag Singh, Balraj Kapoor, Raju, Jaani Babu Qawwaal, Sheikh etc in it.

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

The songs of this movie are as obscure as the movie itself. Posting songs from missing movies of 1960s was a project which was originally the brainchild of our beloved Khyati Bhatt who prepared an excel sheet of missing movies of 1960s. Sudhir Jee took upon this project with right earnesh and posted elusive songs from many of these missing movies.

929 movies were released during 1960s (1961 to 1970). At present, 873 of these movies are represented in the blog.

During the early days of this project (which started in 2013), I also used to cover a few missing movies, before Sudhir Jee took over full responsibility of this project. During the earlier days of this project, I covered the first song from “Black Shadow”(1961) which was this song. It was the only song from this movie that I could locate at that time.

Now, nearly seven years later, when I searched for the songs of this movie, I was able to locate another song. And what a song it turns out to be. It is an all female duet sung by Shamshad Begam and Sudha Malhotra. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Harbans.

Going by the lyrics, I guess that it is a Punjabi style stage performance dance song where one female is dressed as a male and singing in Shamshad Begam’s voice whiile other female, playing a female sings in Sudha Malhotra’s voice.

Only the audio of this “expression of love” genre of song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Nazar hai kaanton se teekhi (Black Shadow)(1961) Singers-Shamshad Begam, Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Harbans

Lyrics

nazar hai kaanton se teekhi
badan hai phoolon se halka
nazar hai kaanton se teekhi
badan hai phoolon se halka
humaari jaan le lega
ishaara tere aanchal ka
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya
balle balle
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya

saja ke resham ka patka
ho mere dil ko de jhatka
hawa mein kyun ude zaalim
pahan ke joota makhmal ka
ho sun mere haaniya haaye
ho sun mere haaniya

balle baale
ho sun mere haaniya haaye
ho sun mere haaniya

ho o o
kashmiri sebo ki laali
chhalke tere gaalon se
saawan bhi sharmaaye tere
ghoonghar waale baalon se

dil ko le dooba hai
dora tere kaajal ka
nazar hai kanto se teekhi
ho tan hai phulo se halka
humaari jaan le lega
ishaara tere aanchal ka
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya
balle balle
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya

saja ke resham ka patka
ho mere dil ko de jhatka
hawa mein kyun ude zaalim
pahan ke joota makhmal ka
ho sun mere haaniya haaye
ho sun mere haaniya

ho balle balle
ho sun mere haaniya haaye
ho sun mere haaniya

o o o
rasmon ki zanjeer tod kar
aa gayi teri baahon mein

dekh goriye dol na jaana
pyaar ki lambi raahon mein
jeewan bhar ka saath hai apna
khel nahin pal ka

nazar hai kanto se teekhi
badan hai phoolon se halka
humaari jaan le lega
ishaara tere aanchal ka
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya
ho balle balle
ho dilbar jaaniya haaye
ho dilbar jaaniya

Here is the sseventh song from “Piya Milan Ki Aas” (1961) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi and chorus. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

I am unable to identify the actor lip syncing the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actor.

PS-Prakashchandra, our inhouse identifier of faces, tells us that the actor lipsyncing in Rafi’s voice is Sundar.

Chorus

Lyrics

jholi mein goli aur chutki mein gutki
mufat ka gatkaaye maal
arre baaba kare kharaaba
bhai bachna
ye kaljug ke kaal

solah aana paaw ratti
pate ki keh gaye jati sati
solah aana paaw ratti
pate ki kah gaye jati sati
hey aise lafangon se bachna
jo karen saadhuon ko badnaam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam

jata badhaa kar alakh jaga kar maala phiraate aathon jaam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam

hey kare saadhuon ko badnaam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam

bhor bhaye ganga tat jaawen
bhor bhaye ganga tat jaawen
kapda rang ke rang jamaawen
kapda rang ke rang jamaawen
chimta gaad ke dhooni ramaawen
sulfa daal ke chilam chadhaawen
(cough cough cough)
sulfa dal ke chilam chadaawen
aadhi raat ko bam bam kar ke
bam bam bam bam bam bam
aadhi raat ko bam bam kar ke
sabki karte neend haraam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam

hey kare saadhuon ko badnaam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
churi bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
bhaai raam bhaai raam
bhaai raam bhaai raam
bhaai raam bhaai raam bhaai
raam bhaai raam bhaai

ek haath beedi ka bandal
ek haath beedi ka bandal
dooje haath mein sohe kamandal
dooje haath mein sohe kamandal
lambe chaude aur mustandal
sath chale chelon ka mandal
aadambar paakhand chhal kapat
aadambar pakhand chhal kapat
ye bagla bhakton ke kaam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam

hey kare saadhuon ko badnaam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
chhuri bagal mein hai munh mein raam
bhaai raam bhaai raam
bhaai raam bhai raam
bhaai raam bhai raam bhaai
raam bhaai raam bhaai
