Blog Day : 3464 Post No. : 13901

OK, so we come to the Yippeee song for today. The film is ‘Naag Mandir’. Just day before yesterday we have posted a song from this film. And you know, an interesting thing happened. This film has six songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Before yesterday’s post, three songs were on the blog. And then, with yesterday’s post, this film got a double promotion. What with that song being a multi version song, actually two songs on the list – actually same song sung by two different singers – the count got incremented not by 1 but by 2. That is convention we follow on this blog. In case the same song appears more than once in a film, as a multi part song or as a song separately sung by more than one singers, then we include all such multi parts / multi versions in the same post.

So then, having jumped straight to 5 from 3, I was just curiously checking on the sixth song. And goodness, it turns out to be one of the special favorites from the radio listening days. As I searched the YouTube and other online sources, as far as I could make out, this song is not yet available anywhere online. Just that put a bee in the mind, and I wrote to Atul ji let’s Yippeee this film right away. Of course, Atul ji’s response was a happy – ‘more the merrier’. 🙂

And so we have the film ‘Naag Mandir’ being Yippeee’d today. Some details about the film. The production house is Mayurkala Pictures, and the film is directed by Shantilal Soni. The main cast of actors is Mahipal, Vijaya Chaudhry, Indira, BM Vyas. The HFGK lists 6 songs for this film, written by three songwriters – Shiv Kumar ‘Saroj’, Bharat Vyas and Asad Bhopali. Today’s song is from the pen of Asad Bhopali. Music direction is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

The five songs that are posted so far on the blog are,

Today’s song, as mentioned earlier, is a favorite from radio listening days. A breezy paced rendering by Lata Mangeshkar, in what appears to be a group dance, given that there is a chorus accompaniment to the lead singer. The song tells of the experiences of the heart as it gets smitten and love for someone settles in it for the first time. A lovely tune composed by Laxmikant Pyaarelal, as they navigate through the lines of the song at different paces. It is a pleasure to listen to.

With this post, the Yippeee-dom ranking for ‘Naag Mandir’ is confirmed. 🙂

Blog Day : 3462 Post No. : 13894

Today is the eighty fourth birth anniversary (9 Jan 1934 – 27 Sep 2008) of singer Mahendra Kapoor. On this occasion today, I present this lovely and haunting song from the 1966 film ‘Naag Mandir’ here on our blog. This song has two versions one sung by Mahendra Kapoor and another sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

‘Naag Mandir’ was directed by Shantilal Soni for Mayurkala Pictures, Bombay. The star cast was led by Mahipal, Vijaya Choudhry and included Indira and BM Vyas.

This movie has six songs, including one multiple version song. Songs for this movie are written by three songwriters – Shiv Kumar ‘Saroj’, Bharat Vyas and Asad Bhopali. This song is written by Bharat Vyas. Music for this movie is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi have given their voices to the songs in this movie. So far three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Not much other information about this movie is either mentioned in HFGK Vol IV or available on other sources.

I became aware of this song around end-eighties, when I started collecting cassettes and also getting compilations of various singers recorded on blank (TDK/Sony) cassettes. In this endeavor I got recorded the Mahendra Kapoor songs on 14.10.1991 and since then this song is there in my collection. I like this song very much and sometimes it automatically come to my lips and I broke into humming it.

When I checked on the blog, I was surprised to note that this was still to be posted. Also, it was only few weeks back that I discovered that this song also has a female version and that too sung by Lata Mangeshkar. There is some difference in the lyrics. Both versions have one common stanza and one different stanza.

Coming back to the songs of Mahendra Kapoor I would like to mention that I like many of his songs very very much. And as and when I have got the opportunity to share his songs I have tried to get them posted on this blog. I am not going into the biographical details of Mahendra Kapoor and the list of his songs in this post today. I will just stop here and leave you with this song to enjoy today remembering him, and his contribution to Hindi Film Music.

Audio (Male Version – Mahendra Kapoor)

Audio (Female Version – Lata Mangeshkar)

Song – Mere Sanam, Sun Mera Gham (Naag Mandir) (1966) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor/ Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Missing Films of 1960s – 38
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Just take a quick look at the still visual of the video panel below. I am so sure you will recognize this enchanting young face. Yes, it is Tabassum, way back from 1966. And that is not the only captivating thing about this song.

The debut film of today is ‘Zimbo Finds A Son’. In the long tradition of ‘Zambo / Zimbo’ films, this is the 1966 version. This film comes from the house of Basant Pictures. Regulars will be familiar that Basant Pictures is part of Wadia group. The famous Nadia and the erstwhile he-man John Cawas were the regular stars of the stunt films produced by Basant Pictures.

The film is directed by John Cawas. The star cast is led by Azaad and Tabassum, and it includes Sherry, Sundar, Dalpat, Raj Malik, Yunus, Pedro, Bismillah, Korega, Yadav, Samson, Ismail, Muhammad, Indira, Prince Arjun, Master Sachin, Mitthu Mian, Babu, Rani etc.

HFGK lists 5 songs for this film. All the songs are penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. The music is composed by the duo of Sapan Jagmohan. The availability of songs of this film is not an issue. All the five songs are quite available in audio, as well as in video format, as the original print of the filmi is very much available. Yes, Basant Pictures is a production house that has taken good care of their films.

When I heard the songs of this film in preparation for this post, I am hard put to select. All songs are quite wonderful and deserve better popularity. Today’s song is one such lilting loveable song – the singer is Asha Bhosle. The rendering is so zestful and so full of life. The words, the pace of the composition, the cheerful rendering – all come together so well. And they make the listener feel inside, the happiness that is being expressed by this song.

On screen, the song is performed by a very young, perky, sprightly and playful Tabassum. Her performance has so neatly captured the intent and the essence of the song. We also see Azaad in the clip, and we see a young boy, whose full face does not come in view of the camera. The list of actors includes the name of Master Sachin. It is possible this child actor can be Master Sachin, but I need confirmation help from other knowledgeable readers.

To mention – the list of Zimbo / Zambo films reads as follows

  1. Zambo, The Ape Man from 1937
  2. Zambo Ka Beta from 1939
  3. Zimbo from 1958
  4. Zimbo Ki Beti from 1959
  5. Zimbo Shehar Mein from 1960
  6. And this one – Zimbo Finds A Son, from 1966

Listen to this playful and energetic song that simply is oozing with happiness. And wonder, where have all these songs been, for so long a time.

Song – Gun Gun Gaaun Hawaa Mein Lehraaun  (Zimbo Finds A Son) (1966) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan
kaare kaare badra
baney hain mora kajra
hain jaagi jaagi aankhon mein sapne jawaan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan

hansta hua chaand mujhko mila
daaman mein ek phool aisa khila
hansta hua chaand mujhko mila
daaman mein ak phool aisa khila
hai jis mein bahaaron ki jaa..aa..aan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan
kaare kaare badra
baney hain mora kajra
hain jaagi jaagi aankhon mein sapne jawaan

rangon mein doobe nazaare hanse
kaliyon ke chanchal ishaare hanse
rangon mein doobe nazaare hanse
kaliyon ke chanchal ishaare hanse
mehakne laga hai samaa..aa..aan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan
kaare kaare badra
baney hain mora kajra
hain jaagi jaagi aankhon mein sapne jawaan

sapnon ki rimjhim mein naache hai mann
khiushiyon ki lehron pe thirke badan
sapnon ki rimjhim mein naache hai mann
khiushiyon ki lehron pe thirke badan
mili dhadkanon ko zubaa..aa..aan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan
kaare kaare badra
baney hain mora kajra
hain jaagi jaagi aankhon mein sapne jawaan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan

“Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) was directed by Raj Khosla for Deep and Pradeep Productions, Bombay, the home prodiction of Pradeep Kumar. The movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Shashikala, Rehman, B Nandi, Jagdeep, Nazeer Hussain, Tuntun etc in it.

This “social” movie had eight songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966). This song is a rare song and only its audio is available. The lyricist of the song is not known. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this movie whose prints do not seem to be available.

Missing Films of 1960s – 37
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah so, new year resolutions – just like carrying heavy burdens. It is only so far that one can haul them. Some can lug them short distances, some can lug them for longer distances. And only rarely can one continue to bear a resolution, on and on.

Atul ji’s tenacity is a legend by now. Maybe not all resolves, but at least he has been able to maintain the ‘no-dot-days’ resolution for, now let us see – the last dot-day on record is 7th September, 2016. Wow – we now have a string of 484 days of continued posting, which translates to 1 year, 3 months 28 days. This blog has been updated with at least one new song every day, without a break – for the past 1 year, 3 months and 28 days continuously (the calculation includes the two end dates of this time period). There have been other breaks in earlier months of 2016 itself. There may or may not be a longer unbroken string of days prior to 2016, but that has to be checked in detail. I have not yet completely researched all the periods, prior to this duration.

So, 1 year, 2 months and 28 days – and counting. This one resolution has really stood the test of time and, I am sorry to repeat but I must – it displays Atul ji’s determination and persistence. 🙂

In his post from day before, he also discussed the resolution relating to debut films and yippeee films. Now these become slightly more complex endeavors. To quote an old adage – “great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending”. I am sure you have caught on to what I am leading to. Yes, it is easier to debut films, but it is much harder to yippeee them 😀 😀 .

There still are a few thousand films that are waiting to make a debut on our blog. But then, that is the easy part. One can catch hold of one song of a film, and voila – the debut is accomplished. But then to yippeee a film – well that is a different game altogether. We take HFGK as our reference. But we know that there is a huge share of films for which all songs are not yet traceable in public domain. And so the trudging pursuit continues, for many a film, where all songs are not available. To top this – i.e. to make it slightly more complicated, there is a fair number of films listed in HFGK, where the list of songs is not complete, and there are known cases where we have discovered unlisted songs, and even unlisted films. 🙂

So all this analysis, I assure you, makes for a very fascinating and sometimes even intriguing journey ahead. . .
All Aboard ??

🙂  🙂  🙂

And so pitching in for a the debut films – at least one-a-day. Now that brings up another interesting thought – this should make for a micro-blog within the blog – ADSAD – Atul’s-Debut-Song-a-Day. 😀 😀 Hopefully so. Let us see how far we can carry this now.

So. . . I am sure when you start reading one of the episodes of this series, you can be rest assured that the post carries a debut song. That is what this series is all about. And you must also be aware as to how this series came about. This is my homework assignment, allocated to me by Ben Katie (or Khyati Behn for those may not be familiar with the coding scheme of the Mastermind’s gang 🙂 ). Missing films – implying that this film is making its first appearance on the blog.

Today’s film is ‘Professor Aur Jaadugar’ from 1966. Now this film is one of those obscure productions that came and went without catching any attention. The film is produced under the banner of Tripil Films, Bombay. I am sure the investors meant this to be ‘Triple’, but then the copywriter probably did not have a spellchecker handy in those days. The director of the film is Sultan. Music director – another debut apparently. The name is Sardar Singh. For that period, it seems this is the only film in which this name appears. Other than an unreleased film titled ‘Baghaawat’, that was apparently attempted sometimes in 1960s. Outside of these two mentions, the name of Sardar Singh does not appear anywhere in the Geet Kosh.

Six songs are listed for this film. The lyricists name is listed as Anjaan. But there is an additional noting specifically for this song – the lyricist name is listed as K Malik. Once again, another name for which I am not able to locate another listing, other than this solitary song. I request our knowledgeable readers to please add more information if available, for the music director and lyricist.

The film is of the stunt genre with a cast of actors listed as Indira Billi, Indrajeet, Khursheed, Indira Bansal, Bob, Poonam Kapoor, Dalpat, Prince Arjun, Jilani and another score of names that are totally unfamiliar.

The singing voice in this song is that of Mubarak Begum. This is a nazm, with a structure of three lines per antaraa (so it is not a ghazal). But surely, this sounds endearing, both for the words written and the manner in which rendered by Mubarak Begum. Soft and relatively simple rendition, that makes it attractive.

As I was preparing for this post, I listened to the set of five songs that I have from this film. The choice of this song is driven in part by the fact that this song is already available on YT. Rest assured that the other songs are also very attractive in their own right, especially a lovely duet sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. But more of that as time progresses. Meanwhile, sit back and listen to, and enjoy this rare song, one of the rarer ones by Mubarak Begum.

 

Song – Khud b Khud Ishq Ka Izhaar Hua Jaata Hai  (Professor Aur Jaadugar) (1966) Singer – Mubarak Begum, Lyrics – K Malik, MD – Sardar Singh

Lyrics

khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai
sach kahen aap se. . .
sach kahen aap se kuchh pyaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

aap bhi apni nigaahon ko zara samjha den
is tarah pyaar se mujhko dekha na karen
husn e masoom. . .
husn e masoom gunehgaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

hum jafaa ishq ka dastoor na hone denge
pyaar ko itna bhi majboor bhi na hone denge
zulm kaisa mere. . .
zulm kaisa mere sarkaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

husn ki shaan na jalwon ke tamaashe le kar
hum to aaye hain ulfat ke taqaaze le kar
dil haqeeqat ka. . .
dil haqeeqat ka talabgaar hua jaata hai
khud b khud ishq ka izhaar hua jaata hai

खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है
सच कहें आप से॰ ॰ ॰
सच कहें आप से प्यार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

आप भी अपनी निगाहों को ज़रा समझा दें
इस तरह प्यार से मुझको देखा ना करें
हुस्न ए  मासूम॰ ॰ ॰
हुस्न ए  मासूम गुनहगार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

हम जफा इश्क़ का दस्तूर ना होने देंगे
प्यार को इतना भी मजबूर ना होने देंगे
ज़ुल्म कैसा मेरे॰ ॰ ॰
ज़ुल्म कैसा मेरे सरकार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

हुस्न की शान ना जलवों के तमाशे ले कर
हम तो आए हैं उल्फ़त के तकाज़े ले कर
दिल हक़ीक़त का॰ ॰ ॰
दिल हक़ीक़त का तलबगार हुआ जाता है
खुद ब खुद प्यार का इज़हार हुआ जाता है

“Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) was directed by Raj Khosla for Deep and Pradeep Productions, Bombay, the home prodiction of Pradeep Kumar. The movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Shashikala, Rehman, B Nandi, Jagdeep, Nazeer Hussain, Tuntun etc in it.

This “social” movie had eight songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

After a gap of some six years, here is the next song from “Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song sounds like an archtypical club dance song. Going by the cast, this song appears tailormade for Shashikala, but I cannot be sure. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

The first day of the year is drawing to a close and let us enjoy the first evening to the year with this nice club dance song.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘अ’ – अब जीने का मौसम आया

kya kahoon
kuchh kahaa nahin jaaye. . .

Really so – our utterances and our thoughts well nigh come to a helpless pause. The more I want to substantiate these thoughts, the more difficult I find to avoid repeating myself. And yet, the voice of Rafi Sb, the limitless nuances of emotions it carries, the multitude of expressions carried in thousands of songs – that voice, that divinity descended from the heavens, continues to perpetuate afresh, with every song that is played. There seems no end to this variety.

Another year has passed without him. Over the years, many imitators have come, but none have lasted. Month in and month out, there are stage shows arranged by music lovers, in many cities and abroad too. Aspiring singers continue to sing his songs, trying to find that matching groove, that may bring their voice closer to the original sound. But alas, that is a bridge too far.

His voice is the genuine sound of the soul itself. No manner of training, no amount of practice, will bring that quality into the emotions of singing. It can only be a gift – it IS a gift, only a gift. A gift that stays and sustains only with a soul that has the humility to acknowledge it as such. And a thought comes to mind; what would be antecedents of this soul, that God chose him to bestow this divine gift. The incomparable goodness of being, the profound purity of the mind, the connected-ness with what may be termed as divinity. . . we may think up so many such epithets and yet will not be able to define and measure the totality of the personality that is Rafi Sb. In all His creation over all the aeons, He chose him to be this voice. And thence ends, our ability to delineate any more.

– – – – –

Coming to the song for today. A while back, I had posted a series of Rafi Sb songs from ‘अ’ to ‘ह’. In the closing episode of that series, I had reiterated that there still are such very lovely songs of Rafi Sb that are awaiting their entry here. And that, as I had conducted my search for solo songs for that series, I had come across a sizeable body of duet songs of Rafi Sb, that could well make up another series. And Raja ji had immediately taken me up on this remark, and wrote that he would be eagerly awaiting its publication.

Been a while now to the previous series. (Interested readers can find the summary list of songs in that series, in its last song at “Hum To Pehli Hi Nazar Mein De Chuke Hain Dil Tumhen“). It got initiated on Rafi Sb’s birth anniversary in 2015 and was completed in April 2017 – 37 songs in all. Today, it is another similar anniversary, and maybe a good time to initiate the proposed (and requested) series.

So here we are, with the first song of the this new series of Rafi Sb duets –from ‘अ’ to ‘ह’. I have done some more filtering and selection, and I hope to bring to you some of the very best of the as yet un-posted and maybe even unheard duets of Rafi Sb.

Today’s superb song is from the 1966 film ‘Dillagi’. The words are from the pen of Majrooh Sb, and the music is from the then very new duo of composers – Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The singing voice accompanying Rafi Sb is Asha Bhosle. The song is kind of a regular ‘in-the-park-and-around-the-tree’ genre. The young lovers are expressing their feelings to each other – that the time for living has now come, that they have met.

The intonations are lovely, the pace is unhurried, the words by Majrooh Sb are just so beautiful. This is a song that I remember having heard on the radio. But searching for this online, when I found its video, I simply fell more in love with this song. Maybe the HD quality of the clip has something to do with it. But more than that, it is also the on screen performances rendered by Mala Sinha and Sanjay.

A wonderful love song – to fall in love with. Listen and enjoy.

hullo Atuldom

Day before yesterday I sat through a movie called “Suhana Safar” looking for a suitable song to wish Sharmila Tagore on her birthday which is this week, made a few mental notes etc. Then I went for a short walk, returned and switched back on to the net to check cricket score etc and the first thing that I saw – an announcement on yahoo’s home page “Shashi Kapoor passes away after prolonged illness at a Mumbai hospital at the age of 79”. My first reaction- “oh no!” Then I thought let me see if atulites have got the news and I saw that our Rajaji had just broken the news there.

There were numerous reactions among my friends and relatives. The news channels were full of reactions by his co-actors, and people at high places starting with the President and Prime Minister of India. There were some tweets about how even the skies were crying at the passing away of this last of Prithviraj Kapoor’s sons- it was raining throughout the west coast of India.

Among the regulars of Atuldom Maheshji forwarded a link to a famous song of Mukesh which is lip-synced by Shashi Kapoor- waqt karta jo wafa. Another forward from our in-house encyclopaedia gave a peek into the life of this smart, handsome Kapoor with a collage of his photos and songs. To dispel any doubts about the genuineness of the news Avinashji sent us a link of Hindustan Times. All-in-all various reactions from the Atul family on the news of the death of a much-loved actor who just gave up his fight with illness. I was always shocked to see photos of an ill Shashi Kapoor, it used to be heart breaking.

The next day’s newspaperied carry reactions from all quarters; his biography about his birthplace, family; how he got into movies; how he met his wife, and how he didn’t recover from her death in the 1980s; list of his popular songs etc. I find that all those were songs which I love. They were all from commercially successful movies. But it seems Shashi’s main aspiration was to rebuild Prithvi Theatre and for this he did a lot of commercial movies- I remember reading a quote of his that he needed commercial movies to fund his needs of running a family, theatre and making the kind of movies which his heart was after. He was a producer of middle-of-the-road or New-Wave cinema as they used to be called.

For a song to accompany this post I am lost for choice (as usual I have a long mental list). But I choose this one from “Pyaar Kiye Jaa”. I had written out lyrics to this song to send it to Atulji in March this year, as is my practice, for Shashi’s birthday. But for some reason it just slipped from my mind. It is penned by Rajender Krishan and Laxmi- Pyare were the music directors with Mohd. Rafi’s playback. It shows Shashi in his element when teasing the ladies much like his song from “Haseena Maan jayegi”- ‘o dilbar jaaniye tere hai hum tere’ or any other song of that genre. His face and eyes convey his mischievousness. I feel like mentioning that his acting style and costumes were different from that any of the reigning superstars- Raj-Dilip-Dev or his own older brother Shammi Kapoor. He had a sense of rhythm (all the Kapoors have this quality) but his way of dancing was different.

Will have to look for him in his movies and songs henceforth…


Song-Gore haathon par na zulm karo (Pyaar Kiye Jaa)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

oye hoye

haazir hai ye banda hukm karo
tumhaari kanwaari kalaayi ko
daag na lagey ae ae ae ae
o gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo

jaan-e-man in haathon mein toh
mehandi ka rang lagana hai ae
haay pyaar ki rangat se
tere naazuk ang ang sajna hai
hai kaun si aisi mazboori
jo husn kare yeh majdoori
tumhaari kanwaari kalaayi ko
daag na lage ae ae ae
gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo

mehlon ki tum raani ho
main preet nagar ka shehzaada aa
baant len ham kyun na dono
dhan apna aadha aadha
ham kaam kare tum raaj karo
manzoor toh haath pe haath dharo
tumhaari kanwaari kalaayi ko
daag na lage ae ae ae ae
gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo

gusse mein jo uljhi hai
aao toh woh lat main suljha doon oon
haaye chhede jo zulfein teri
uss shokh hawa ko rukva doon
dekho naa yoon aankhe mal mal ke
pad jaayenge dhabbe kaajal ke
tumhaari kanvaari kalaayi ko
daag na lage ae ae ae ae
gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo
o gore haathon par naa zulm karo
haazir hai ye banda hukm karo

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“What a find. Such a rollicking song.”

This the comment by our own Ava Suri ji, that I find on the YouTube upload page of this song. Yes, ‘rollicking’ is just the right word to describe the tenor of this song. By the way, the YouTube channel on which this is posted is titled ‘The Edwina Channel’. And for those who are familiar, this channel is managed by Dan Thomas (aka Thomas Daniel). Dan has been actively collaborating with dear Greta Memsaab, for cleaning and sprucing up digital videos of old Hindi films, subtitling them and putting them up on the YT. Our dear Raja ji is also part of this effort.

The eighth edition of this series comes on after a long gap. The previous (7th) episode was posted on 5th April earlier this year (which itself was posted after a gap of almost one and a half years after the 6th one). The delay is all mine, and so is the loss. In the interim, at least two or three songs that I had short listed for this series, got posted otherwise. 😦 🙂 So anyway, the search is on for more Fabulous Foot Tappers from the 1950s and 60s.

The Rock n Roll genre of music took shape and evolved in the United States during late 1940s and early 1950s. The phrase “rocking and rolling” originally described the movements of a ship on the ocean. Later, this phrase was used to describe the spiritual fervor of church rituals, especially the Afro-American church denominations. The phrase also started to be used as a term for amorous tryst between lovers. 😉

Developing from a combination of gospel music, jazz music and the R&B (rhythm and blues) of the Afro-American people, this music very soon caught the fancy of the white teenager population in the growing urban centres in America. Moving on from the origins, where the primary musical instrument used to be a piano or a saxophone, in the early 1950s, the guitar took the centre stage, supported by the drums. And soon, as the electric guitar came along, it became by itself, or in combination with the normal guitar, the lead instrument for this music. As this music became popular across the race divide in the US, radio stations started to dedicatedly play this music, and started to refer to it as Rock n Roll.

Hindi films could not be far behind in adapting this music genre into the film songs. From the mid 1950s onwards, we see quite a number of music directors that took this genre and constructed many a wonderful pieces. Listening to them, there is an urge to tap your feet, or even get up and start dancing to these fabulous rocking sounds.

Today’s treat is a great sampling of this genre. Coming from the obscure film ‘Love And Murder’ (1966), this fast paced song is composed by OP Nayyar. Right from the word go, the drum beats take the centre stage, and in the accompanying visuals we see a group of young men and women dancing to the tune of this wonderful rock n roll song. The dancers are led by Edwina. The other young lady accompanying her in the lead movements is identified as Aruna, as per the YT post by Dan.

If this song had not been so positively rollicking, I would have been tempted to use it in the other series titled “Rare Performances – Things Unique and Unexpected”. We have a surprise – an actor who I see lip syncing a song on screen for the first time – Hiralal, the noted villain character from many a films of the Golden Era. He is accompanied very enthusiastically by Suresh. There is one more bearded young man who accompanies them in the lead singing; I request for help from other knowledgeable readers to identify this actor.

I have noted this as a “diversion” song. As the opening shot shows, this song is being performed during late evening time, on open street in front of a building that carries the sign board of a bank. As the song proceeds, we are treated to some shots which explain what is happening – the plan is to rob the bank. Some members of the gang are inside the bank and are attempting to blast open the vault with explosives. Another part of this gang is on the road outside the bank, with loud music, singing and fireworks, obviously to mask the explosive sounds of the misdeeds of the miscreants inside the bank.

The words of this song are penned by Shewan Rizvi. The music, the drum rhythms, the quick-burst paced singing and the energetic dance action on the street, all combine to make a wholly fabulous foot tapper. When I started exploring this film for songs, and came across this one, I am simply not able to resist listening to it every so often for the past few days. As Ava ji has said it, and I repeat – “Such a rollicking song”.

I suggest you put on your dancing shoes, before playing it. 😉

Rafi + Chorus

Lyrics

dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

dekh palat ke dhyaan kidhar hai
kisi ki topi kisi ke sar hai
haath safaai bada hunar hai
naam hamaara jaadugar hai
hosh udaa de badey badey hoshiyaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

chhuri bagal mein ram ka naara
galey lagaa ke phere aara
aankhen ho to dekh nazaara
raat mein suraj
din mein taara
kehl yahaan pe paise ki jhankaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

ajab hai naksha aaj shehar ka
kahin chataakha kahin pataakha
door kahin par hua dhamaaka
koi na samjha shukar khuda ka
shehar mien hoga shor ye kal akhbaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

देख पलट के ध्यान किधर है
किसी की टोपी किसी के सर है
हाथ सफाई बड़ा हुनर है
नाम हमारा जादूगर है
होश उड़ा दे बड़े बड़े होशियारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

छुरी बगल में राम का नारा
गले लगा के फेरें आरा
आँखें हों तो देख नज़ारा
रात में सूरज दिन में तारा
खेल यहाँ पे पैसे की झंकारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

अजब है नक्शा आज शहर का
कहीं चटाखा कहीं पटाखा
दूर कहीं पर हुआ धमाका
कोई ना समझा शुकर खुदा
शहर में होगा शोर ये कल अखबारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

Missing Films of 1960s – 36
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aisa to hota hi hai. The name of the film sometimes is not so interesting; it seems to automatically convey a B/C grade stunt cum familiar crime and punishment fare. And so we tend to pass over such names in our search of favorites. But as always, unfailingly, it is such films that carry some of the best music that we have heard. Plus, as I realized while checking out this film, the music director is OP Nayyar. The year is 1966, and OPN is quite much in the running as one of the top music directors in the industry. And the film that I am un-packaging on this blog for the first time – it is ‘Love And Murder’.

Sure you will say, with such a name, who would pay attention. Plus the star cast – lead pair is Ramesh Deo and Jaimala. Well, who would pause at this film while browsing the lists. Aah, but we err here. If there is Helen in the cast, and the music is by OPN, one can expect some real good songs with Asha Bhosle singing and Helen doing her moves on the screen. Yes, we need to be more sensitive to such tell tale signs as we look for songs to post. Plus given that this film is available, and all its songs are available online – that sure is an error on our part.

So the film ‘Love And Murder’ makes its debut on our blog today, with this signature Helen dance song. It surely caught my fancy as soon as I heard it, and I have repeated heard it many times over the past two three days. And there is more in this film – the other songs are no less exquisite.

This is a stunt film from the banner of Adarshlok, Bombay, and is directed by Raja Paranjape. Cast of actors includes Prithiviraj Kapoor, Ramesh Deo, Jaimala, Helen, Heeralal, Kammo and Chandrakant Ghokale, amongst others. This list is taken from the Geet Kosh details, and possibly more names can be added. One, maybe, in this song itself. Onscreen we see Helen and Ramesh Deo. Later during the performance, Jaimala makes an entry. There is one more familiar face in this clip; the gentleman who gets up and approaches Jaimala as she enters the scene. Is this the actor Suresh? I am guessing, and I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm or correct my statement.

The film has six songs. Geet Kosh lists names of three songwriters – Shewan Rizvi, SH Behari and Aziz Lucknawi. Of the six songs, two are attributed to Aziz Lucknawi and one each to Shewan Rizvi and SH Behari. Two songs are listed with no name of lyricist attached to it. Today’s song is one of those two songs without an attribution of a songwriter.

OPN + Asha Bhosle + Helen, the combination makes for some very good music and dance performance. This song is no exception. The rhythm and the beats in the song are just superb. OPN shifts between drums for the mukhda and the interludes, and tabla for the antaraas. A typical OPN style that can be seen is some more of his creations.

Enjoy this wholesome debut, wonderful music, and Helen – what more one can ask for. 🙂

ho ja re mujh par zara meharbaan
ho ja re mujh par zara meharbaan

ho mere dil
ho oo
meri jaan
haaaye
tu keh de to kar daaloon main dil ka haal byaan
ha ha ha ha ha
ho mere dil
ho oo
meri jaan
ho oo oo
tu keh de to kar daaloon main dil ka haal byaan..aa..aan

ho ra la ho la ho
o la la ho la ho
ra la ho ra ho ra ho oo oo

aankhon mein tu hi tu
saanson mein tu hi tu
aankhon mein tu hi tu
saanson mein tu hi tu
aa ja meri baahon mein
jannat hai in raahon mein
aa ja meri baahon mein
jannat hai in raahon mein
sun le mere pyaar ki daastaan
sun le mere pyaar ki daastaan

ho mere dil
ho oo
meri jaan
ho oo
tu keh de to kar daaloon main dil ka haal byaan
ha ha ha ha ha
ho mere dil
meri jaan
ho oo oo
tu keh de to kar daaloon main dil ka haal byaan..aa..aan

मेरे दिल
मेरी जाँ
तू कह दे तो कर डालूँ मैं दिल का हाल बयां
हो मेरे दिल
मेरी जाँ
तू कह दे तो कर डालूँ मैं दिल का हाल बयां॰॰आ॰॰आं

हो लारा हो लारा
हो लारा हो लारा
हो लारा हो लारा हो लारा हो ओ ओ

खामोशी कहती है
बेचैनी रहती है
खामोशी कहती है
बेचैनी रहती है
तनहाई की रातें हैं
दीवारों से बातें हैं
तनहाई की रातें हैं
दीवारों से बातें हैं
हो जा रे मुझपे ज़रा महरबां
हो मेरे दिल
हो ओ
मेरी जाँ
हा॰॰ए
तू कह दे तो कर डालूँ मैं दिल का हाल बयां
हा हा हा हा हा
हो मेरे दिल
हो ओ
मेरी जाँ
हो ओ ओ
तू कह दे तो कर डालूँ मैं दिल का हाल बयां॰॰आ॰॰आं

हो रा ला हो ला हो
ओ ला ला हो ला हो
रा ला हो रा हो रा हो ओ ओ

आँखों में तू ही तू
साँसों में तू ही तू
आँखों में तू ही तू
साँसों में तू ही तू
आजा मेरी बाहों में
जन्नत है राहों में
सुन ले मेरे प्यार की दास्ताँ
सुन ले मेरे प्यार की दास्ताँ
हो मेरे दिल
हो ओ
मेरी जाँ
हो ओ
तू कह दे तो कर डालूँ मैं दिल का हाल बयां
हा हा हा हा हा
हो मेरे दिल
मेरी जाँ
हो ओ ओ
तू कह दे तो कर डालूँ मैं दिल का हाल बयां॰॰आ॰॰आं
