Missing Films of 1960s – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

At the beginning of this month, June 1st, I had a personal reminder to myself – passing away anniversary of Khwaja Ahmed Abbas. I was wanting to do a brief remembrance post. Other “things” intervened and the day came and went. Then, it so happened that on the 15th June, there was a set of reminders and requests for the birth centenary celebrations of Sajjaad Husain. Not many “things” intervened that day, and I was able to locate a rare recording of a song from film ‘Dharam’ (1945), as yet unposted, and was able to post the remembrance article in good time. You may remember the title line of that song “Chali Pawan Purvaai, Chali Pawan”.

The year 1964 saw the release of two films with titles starting with ‘Pahaadi’. One is titled ‘Pahaadi Jawaan’ and the second one is ‘Pahaadi Nagin’. Very rare, very obscure. Small mercies that at least one of them – ‘Pahaadi Nagin’ has some of its songs traceable. ‘Pahaadi Jawaan’ – nothing traceable so far.

With this post, I introduce another missing film from the 1960s. The film is ‘Khufia Mahal’ from 1964. As I checked out the songs of this film, I find some very lovable compositions. And why not. The music is from the mind of that one another unsung genius of that era – Pardesi. With a career that was limited to just four films, one sees him active from 1960 to 1972. And after that, lost in the dusks of anonymity. Nothing much more is available in terms of information, other than the 30+ songs he has created, some of which are real gems.

Ever so often, I go searching for a song, an obscure song from an obscure film. I do not know what I will find, because the film is unfamiliar and the songs are unheard. I just dive into the list of songs sitting in my hard drive, with apprehensions, knowing not what will be discovered. And almost always, when I return to surface, I am gasping for breath, not that I was not able breath while in the depths of my collection, but because of wonder and joy on having laid my hands on a fabulous gem of a song that I had not heard before. And going by the awareness factor and availability online, the same may be true for friends and readers who may quite well also be listening to such gems for the first time.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 35

“शम्मा बुझने को चली

Of the many colors of Rafi Sb’s voice, probably the most touching, and the most impressive is his interpretation of the emotions of sadness. Maybe, it be so that the “. . . sweetest songs are the ones that tell of the saddest thoughts” (from the poetry of Percy Shelley, that inspired the iconic song of ‘Patita’ (1953) – “Hain Sab Se Madhur Wo Geet Jinhen Hum Dard Ke Sur Mein Gaate Hain”). And maybe, that the genuineness and honesty of expressions that go together with the unfeigned and substantive voice of Rafi Sb, it simply makes us feel the true depth of this ‘sweetness’ – a sweetness that touches a very familiar, a very dear chord within.

“वो चाँद सा चेहरा लिए, छत पर तेरा आना

tu raat khadi thi chhat pe
nee main samjha ke chaand nikla

There is something so uniquely desi about this romantic element – ‘chhat pe’ – ‘on the rooftop’ scenario. If it were the western milieu, the thought would be to go as far as the balcony; the scenario being Juliet present at the balcony and Romeo serenading her from the garden below. No where the western writer has thought of ascending to the terrace, bring in the soubriquet of the moon, and then let the verse take over from there. On the subcontinent, so much romance seems to have happened on the terrace, in the pages of prose and in the lines of verse.

Today, the 8th of March, is a very special day for some of us.

No, it’s not because it is International Women’s Day. Well, that too, but also because it is the birthday of somebody associated with the Hindi film industry who is very close to us.

Yes, I’m talking about Sahir Ludhianvi. Sahir Sb would have been 96 today had he been alive.
