Missing Films of 1960s – 34
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yesterday, 25th July, was the anniversary of passing away of GS Kohli, the music director extraordinaire. He passed away in 1996, in Bombay.

A long time assistant music director to OP Nayyar, he had a short stint as an independent music director in the decade of 1960s. Despite a load of fantastic lilting songs in all his films – songs that became instant hits, very popular in their times, and still continue to be favourites of the lovers of the golden era of Hindi film music – he remained confined to B/C grade stunt films only. He continued to work as OPN’s assistant before, during and after his stint as an independent music director.

There is a lot common in his music and that of OPN, and that is in part due to the fact that he had a major role to play in designing and creating the rhythms and beats of OPN’s songs. The use of dholak and the rhythms of Punjab make the music of GS Kohli oh so adorable. Just give one more listen to the wonderful pensive sound of “Yaad Tori Aayi To Main Chham Chham Royi Re” (film ‘Faulaad’, 1963). After just the first half line of the mukhda, the dholak takes on, and continues to support the singing pieces, without a break till the end. The symbolism for emotions can be debated, but just listen to the beat as it keeps on consistently through the song. So beautifully constructed – try to think about this song without the dholak beats. . . would you??

There is one more very interesting thing about the music of GS Kohli. A wonder that has always been missed in the golden era of Hindi film music is. . .  guess. . . – think about OP Nayyar and what is missing from his portfolio. . .

Full marks to all who thought about Lata Mangeshkar. The creations that would have been, had these two artists worked together, has forever now remained a topic of speculation. Aah, but there is a reprieve – the music and songs of GS Kohli. Yes, Lata ji has sung for GS Kohli. And listening to these songs, one can get the closest feel for how it would have been – Lata ji singing for OPN. Let us check out the songs –

‘Shikari’ (1963) has four songs.
Baaje Ghunghroo Chhun Chhun Chhun Chhun” – solo
Agar Main Poochhoon Jawaab Doge” – duet with Rafi Sb
Chaman Ke Phool Bhi Thujko Gulaab Kehte Hain” – duet with Rafi Sb
Maangi Hain Duaayen Hamne Sanam” – duet with Usha Mangeshkar

‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ (1965) has one song.
Pyaar Ki Baat Nigaahon Se Jataayaa Na Karo” – duet with Mahendra Kapoor

‘Namaste ji’ (1965), another bonanaza of superb songs, has two songs.
Mere Do Naina Matwaale. . .  Kis Ke Liye” – solo
Bahaaro Thaam Lo Ab Dil Mera Mehboob Aata Hai” – duet with Mukesh

‘Naujawaan’ (1966) has two songs,
“Aaiye Aap Tashreef Le Aaiye, Baakhuda Aapse Koi Parda Nahin” – solo
“Majnoon Saa Aashiq Mar Gaya Lekin Nasihat Kar Gaya” – duet with Usha Mangeshkar

‘Sangdil’ (1967) has one gem of a female duet.
“Badi Kaafir Tumhaari Nazar Nikli, Meri Jaan Le Gayi, Do-Jahaan Le Gayi” – duet with Usha Mangeshkar

And then ‘Gunda’ (1969) has a superb solo
“Nazar Ne Uth’te Hi Kuch Is Adaa Se Kaam Kiya” – solo

Definitely worth a re-listen, and try the flavor with the thought in the mind – here is the music that could be the closest representation of Lata ji singing for OP Nayyar.

For today’s song, I have another fabulous female duet from the film ‘Do Matwaale’ (1966). The song is ‘Hamre Sajan Ghar Aaye’, sung alongwith Usha Mangeshkar. Interesting to note that all the Lata duets in female company, composed by GS Kohli, are all sung with Usha Mangeshkar.

The film ‘Do Matwaale’ opens its account on our blog today. As has been his wont, this is another stunt film from the banner of Rainbow Films, Bombay, directed by Kamraan, whom we all remember as one of the popular leading men of such stunt films in the 1950s and 60s. The star cast is led by the two pairs – Randhawa and Malika, and Kamraan and Helen. Others in the cast include Madan Puri, Madhumati, Rani etc.

The film has 5 songs listed, which are written by two songwriters – Anjaan and Farooque Kaiser. However, the Geet Kosh does not specify which song is written by which poet. This song, as mentioned above, is an all female duet sung by Lata ji and Usha Mangeshkar. As I was searching for a song for today, I came to this song and stopped. For one, here was a debut opportunity for another 1960s film, and secondly, when I heard it, it turns out to be a favourite from radio listening days, but completely forgotten in the interim. It is wonderful to be re-united with this song once again. Wonderful words, enchanting music and rhythm, and quickfire synchronized rendition – all combine to make a winner. From the sounds of it, it seems to be a twin dance song, and could likely have been picturized on Malika and Helen. I am just guessing, but yes, I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends, to add more information about the on screen performances.

Song – Hamre Sajan Ghar Aaye  (Do Matwaale) (1966) Singer – Lata Mangehskar, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – [Unattributed] [either Anjaan or Farooque Kaiser], MD – GS Kohli
Lata Mangeshkar + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

hamre sajan ghar aaye
haaye
aaye sajan ghar aaye
keh de koi chaand se jaa ke
jaana ho to jaaye
hamre sajan ghar aaye
haaye
aaye sajan ghar aaye
keh de koi chaand se jaa ke
jaana ho to jaaye
hamre sajan ghar aaye
haaye
aaye sajan ghar aaye

nain kunwaare kajra sajaaye
raah takey teri
ho o o
pehli nazar mein dil de daala
bhool hui hai meri
haaye
bhool hui hai meri
daulat ho to maang loon waapas
dil na manga jaaye
hamre sajan ghar aaye
haaye
aaye sajan ghar aaye

poochho na hum se tanhaayion mein
hum pe kya kya beeti
ho o o o
dil dhadka hai saans ruki hai
samjho qayaamat tooti
haaye
samjho qayaamat tooti
phir bhi ye dil pyaar ka maara
tere hi gun gaaye
hamre sajan ghar aaye
haaye
aaye sajan ghar aaye

———————————————————

हमरे सजन घर आए
हाए
आए सजन घर आए
कह दो कोई चाँद से जा के
जाना है तो जाये
हमरे सजन घर आए
हाए
आए सजन घर आए
कह दो कोई चाँद से जा के
जाना है तो जाये
हमरे सजन घर आए
हाए
आए सजन घर आए

नैन कुँवारे कजरा सजाये
राह तके तेरी
हो ओ ओ
पहली नज़र में दिल दे डाला
भूल हुई है मेरी
हाए
भूल हुई है मेरी
दौलत हो तो मांग लूँ वापस
दिल ना मांगा जाये
हमरे सजन घर आए
हाए
आए सजन घर आए

पूछो ना हमसे तन्हाइयों में
हम पे क्या क्या बीती
हो ओ ओ
दिल धड़का है सांस रुकी है
समझो क़यामत टूटी
हाए
समझो क़यामत टूटी
फिर भी ये दिल प्यार का मारा
तेरे ही गुण गाये
हमरे सजन घर आए
हाए
आए सजन घर आए

Missing Films of 1960s – 33

Unbelievable – that this song is still waiting to be posted.

This gem of a song, a forgotten favorite from the radio listening days. Such a lovely and soulful song, a wondrous melody that enhances the poignancy of the emotions contained within the words. And the words – what an ocean of feelings has been captured and bundled, just within the three phrases of the first line itself,

dil liya. . .     gham diya. . .     kya kiya. . .

With this post, the blog now carries 700 songs by Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

The story of Laxmikant Pyaarelal reads like a dream rags-to-riches story. But it is also a story of hard work and persistent effort. Laxmikant, the senior partner in the team, was three years elder to Pyaarelal. Interestingly, both were born on 3rd of the month, Laxmikant in November and Pyaarelal in September. Pyaarelal is the son of the renowned musician Ram Prasad Sharma. Although active in the film industry since the latter part of 1930s, Ram Prasad did some films independently from 1947 to 1950. Not adept with commercial acumen, his financial status was poor most of his life. Pyaarelal, his eldest son, had to start working as a musician in recording studios at the age of 12, to support his family. The story of Laxmikant’s childhood is even more depressing. He was raised in the slums of Vile Parle in Bombay. His father passed away when he was just a toddler. A friend of his father supported him and guided him towards learning music. With time, his talent shone through, and he too started working as a musician in the film industry.

Remembering Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on the 19th anniversary of his passing away today (25th May).
