Missing Films of 1960s – 69
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This is a tried and tested mechanics. Whenever I have tried it, it has always worked like a charm. Maybe one should work on deriving some axiomatic theorem from this experience.

Dig out a film no one has heard about, even yourself. Try and locate some songs of this film. One or more artists associated with the song should be totally unfamiliar and less known. Check out the songs. You will find a song or songs which are so wonderfully attractive, that the mind is dumbfounded – where have these gems been buried, and that so for decades. Just does not settle into some sensible logic.

The year is 1967, not too far faded back in memory. The film is ‘Jungle Ki Hoor’ – an absolute unknown entity. I mean, now living in the age of Geet Kosh, we do see the listings, and know – OK, there is a film of that year with this name. But nothing more than that. And the situation does not change much, since no additional information can be sought out for films of such temper.

But then, you lay hands on some songs of this film. As I have been able to locate and acquire – a couple of songs of this film. Apparently just one record of this film has been traced so far in public domain. I know this film is listed in the homework list of missing films of 1960s. So I pull out the songs, listen to them, and am bowled over.

The song presented today is written by Sajan Bihari – a totally unfamiliar name. As I checked the Geet Kosh, I find this name appear only in one more film – ‘Bahut Door’ – an unreleased film from 1940s. Incidentally, the music director for both these films is BN Bali (aka Baldev Nath Bali). So sometimes in the 1940s, these two artists came together and created some songs. And then after almost two decades, they reunite for another film in 1967. As far as BN Bali is concerned, we encounter his name in some more listings, but Sajan Bihari – that’s it.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of NJ Productions, Bomby and is directed by SM Sheikh. The cast of actors includes Azaad, Indira, Khurshid, Tuntun, Habeeb, Maqbool, Nazeer Kashmiri, Fazal Khan, V Kishore, B Rupa, Noorjahan, Anand (Mamaji), Indian Charlie, Waliul Khan and Sheikh himself. Geet Kosh lists six songs for this film, with two songwriters identified – Madan and Sajan Bihari. Madan is not so much of an unknown entity now. Very active in the decade of 1960s and 1970s, he has almost a hundred songs to his credit listed in the Geet Kosh. And we have seven of his songs already showcased on our blog.

Sajan Bihari, on the other hand, is a mystery. Only three songs listed in the entire Geet Kosh, and the first one to find its place on our blog. I would request the more knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this lyricist. And about this film also, if possible.

The singing voice is Krishna Kalle. A very beautifully rendered song, I am sure you will love it on first hear, as I did. Enjoy.

Song – Aaj Khushi Ka Jaam Le  (Jungle Ki Hoor) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Sajan Bihari, MD – BN Bali

Thoda Sa Dil Laga Ke Dekh. . .

Film – ‘Musafirkhana’ from 1955, she plays the role Mary, the love interest of Frankie (Johnny Walker). Mary’s mother fancies another match for her daughter, and Frankie is contemplating suicide on that account. As it often happens in films, Mary breaks out into a song, trying to lift up Frankie’s dying spirits.

1958 – she plays the role of Nargis, the bosom friend of Sheela (Nutan), in this confused and comic scenario of mixed identities and true love – ‘Aakhiri Daao’. Funny to note that Nargis is her real name. And casting credit lists her assumed name. Always life is so interesting.

On to 1960 and ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi’. Now she is Sheela, the naughty and playful nurse, who is reprimanded by the head nurse for putting on too much lipstick. Then it is ‘Half Ticket’ in 1962. As Lily, a partner in crime with Raja Babu (Pran) – the scene is simply hilarious, as she tries again and again to pat Vijay’s (Kishore Kumar) bottom – actually his back pocket, searching for an expensive diamond that Raja Babu has hidden there. There is a whole music and dance sequence, with a tape recorder keeping company, as she tries to extract the stolen goods from Vijay, without letting him know.

In 1965, she is Stella, the au pair companion to Rita (Nanda), in the musical romantic drama ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’. 1970, moving into senior roles; the film is ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, and she herself is Rita, the British Indian wife of Sharma (Madan Puri), always with a smoking cigarette in her hand.

Fast forward forty years, to 2012 – she is very much on screen, this time playing the mother in law to Nargis (Daisy Irani) and grandmother of Farhad (Boman Irani) in ‘Shirin Farhad Ki To Nikal Padi’.

6th March earlier this year, she passed away in her sleep, just some weeks short of her 89th birthday. A memorable career for more than six decades, with quite over 200 films in her portfolio, and a number of very successful TV serials thrown in for good measure. Nargis Rabadi – she would have been 89 today.

Born this day in 1929, Nargis’ father was a priest in the Parsi temple. She was just 3 years old when her father passed away. Her mother raised her two daughters, working as a cook at the Parsi community festivals. After completing her studies, her elder sister got a job as an office secretary at Johnson & Johnson. So when Nargis completed her studies, she also came to Johnson & Johnson, working in the packaging department.

A close family friend and uncle, Chinuu Mama, was associated with the film industry. One thing led to another, and Nargis was introduced to Sheikh Mukhtar, who at that time was searching for a second lead lady for his film ‘Ustad Pedro’ (1951). At first, he was concerned that Nargis may not be able to handle the Hindi/Urdu dialogue, being a Parsi. But Nargis talked to him and the director Harish, and they were convinced she could do the role. That’s how she got her first break in films.

And with the first break, she also got a new name. The film’s director was concerned that her name might be confused with another rising star of those years – Nargis. And so he suggested her to change her name to Shammi. She did, and the name served her well for the remainder of her life. In later years, she became to be better known as Shammi Aunty.

Stringing through the cameos above, an interesting thing emerges. Her name is Nargis. She changes that to Shammi. In the 1958 film ‘Aakhiri Daao’, her name in credit appears as ‘Shammi’, and her screen name is Nargis. Then in 2012, her screen name is not clearly evident (in ‘Shirin Farhad. . .’), but then her daughter in law (Daisy Irani) has the screen name of Nargis. 🙂

Alongside ‘Ustad Pedro’, Harish was also directing another film at the same time – ‘Malhaar’ (produced by Mukesh, the singer). Impressed by her performance during the shooting of ‘Ustad Pedro’, he cast her as the heroine of ‘Malhaar’ opposite to another new face, Arjun. Although ‘Ustad Pedro’ did good business and was popular, ‘Malhaar’ failed to impress at the box office. The prospects of growing as a leading lady in the industry slowly receded.

But on the other hand, she became very much in demand for second lead female roles. Especially if the role demanded some comic goofiness, Shammi was quite the first name that the producers thought of. With little breaks here and there, she continued her cinematic journey, playing oh so many an endearing roles, leaving behind indelible memories. The wide eyed shocked look on her face as she opens the door to find her grandson (Boman Irani) standing there, as if coming out of a melee – is simply priceless. So many more of such moments flicker through the mind’s eye, as I pull together this piece today.

The song that I present today, however, is on a more somber note, the words expressing the very emotion that the heart wants to convey – “तुम चले॰॰॰ क्यों चले”. The film is ‘Awaara Ladki’ from 1967. This is an Asha Bhosle solo rendition that is picturized on a much younger Shammi. In the clip, we also see Sudesh Kumar – with a very lost look on his face, walking away from her, and then the song begins.

It is a peculiar situation – I am reminded of the one earlier song that I had posted from this film. The emotional mood of the song and the situation of that song is precisely the same – Sudesh Kumar + lost look + walking away, only the lady singing that song is different. It is Sheela Ramani singing “Arre Jaane Waale Nazar To Mila Ja”. Discovery of these two similar songs indicate some sort of a love triangle in the film’s story. Interesting – prompts me to watch this film.

This song is not listed in the Geet Kosh, although the print does indicate that there are more songs than the four listed. Music is by Dhaniram, and the uploader of this video clip, a dear friend Dharmesh from Rohtak, has indicated that the lyrics are from the pen of Kaif Irfani. So I will go by that information for now.

Bidding a good bye to a dear goofy artist, and to the long innings she has played on screen. Rest in peace, Nargis; or maybe I should say, wallow in mirth Shammi Aunty, wherever you are.

Adios and farewell.

 

Song – Tum Chale. . . Kyon Chale  (Awaara Ladki) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Kaif Irfani, MD – Dhaniram

Missing Films of 1960s – 64
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today, we bring on board another missing film from 1967. ‘Shamsheer’ is an obscure film, which many people won’t remember now. We become aware of such films, mostly through the Geet Kosh listings.

A film by the same name was also produce a decade or so earlier – in 1953. ‘Shamsheer’ – meaning a ‘sword’ – this word appears in the title of many films actually. There are films by the name ‘Shamsheerbaaz’ – in 1940 and 1953 (yes, in 1953, both ‘Shamsheer’ and ‘Shamsheerbaaz’ appeared in the same year). Then way back in 1935, we have another film titled ‘Shamsheer e Arab’.

The 1967 film ‘Shamsheer’ was produced under the banner of Sangram Pictures of Bombay, and and was directed by Babubhai Mistry. This film was costume drama. One look as the list of actors, and we realize this is a Sheikh Mukhtar film, with the list of actors reading as Prithviraj, Sheikh Mukhtar, Geetanjali, Ajeet Singh, Aruna Irani, Jeevan, Maruti, Helen, Madhumati, Lakshmichaya, Jeevankala, Ratnamala, Sarita, Uma Dutt, Paulson, Ridku, and Meenakshi.

Geet Kosh lists six songs for this film, which are written by four songwriters – two songs by Aish Kanwal, two by Asad Bhopali, one by Bharat Vyas and one by Madhukar Rajasthani. This song is written by Asad Bhopali. Music direction is by the duo of Lala-Sattaar. Readers are familiar with the trio of Lala-Asar-Sattaar. Of these, Lala and Sattaar also gave music together as a duo.

So presenting today, the first song of the 1967 film ‘Shamsheer’. It is a quick paced ‘nok jhonk’ type duet which is sung by Raf Sb and Shamshad Begum. I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information for this film and this song, if available.

Song – Aaj Ye Bijli Kahaan Giregi  (Shamsheer) (1967) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Lala Sattaar

Lyrics

Missing Films of 1960s – 63
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Shamma Jali To Jala Parwaana
Pyaar Bana Afsaana. . .

The film, ‘Pyaar Bana Afsaana’ was eventually never released. However the songs were already recorded and released. This song caught the attention of the listening public, and it did become quite a popular memory in the radio listening days.

Remembering Krishna Kalle – three years ago this day, she passed away at the age of 74.

In 1957, when she was declared the winner of a national level singing award for young talent, she received this award from the hands of the then President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad. More awards and recognitions followed in the subsequent years. In 1965, she was honored as the ‘Golden Voice of India’.

In 1960 she joined the All India Radio in Bombay (now Mumbai). However, within three or four years, she made her debut as a playback singer in the film industry. As per Geet Kosh, her first song came in the film ‘Daanveer Karna’ in 1965.  She continued to be active in both the Hindi and Marathi cinema, and has also sung some songs in Kannada films. Given the situation of the industry, this talented young singer did never make it to the top level of playback singing in the industry. She sang over 200 songs in Hindi films in an active career that spanned from mid 1960s to mid 1980s. Besides, she also has to her credit, about 100 songs in the Marathi film. In addition, there are almost another 100 non-film songs and bhajans recorded by her.

Today’s song is from the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’. This is a Sheikh Mukhtar film that is produced under the banner of Shimla Productions, and is directed by R Thakar. Besides Sheikh Mukhtar, the star cast is led by Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum. The other players in this films are Bhagwan, Madan Puri, Uma Dutt, Neelam, Nandini, Tuntun, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lakshmichaya, Kundan, Dilip Dutt, and Tiwari etc.

The story is a typical variation on the Sheikh Mukhtar tales. Shankar (Sheikh Mukhtar) is on the run from the police, for a crime believes he has committed; but actually he himself is mistaken. He flees from village and comes to Bombay, and becomes part of a gang led by Khan (Uma Dutt). Khan is a involved in criminal activities, but he is a man of his word. Shankar’s sister Kum Kum, also comes to Bombay in search of her brother. Sanjeev Kumar is an upright police officer. By a sequence of events, Kum Kum and Sanjeev Kumar meet at the police station, and he takes her to his home, since she has no place to stay. Love blossoms between them. Madan Puri, an old adversary of Shankar from the village, also comes to Bombay, and also starts working for Khan. Some more predictable events happen and then all is sorted out for a happy ending.

Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, three of which are written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and two by Akhtar Romani. The sixth song does not have a lyricist name mentioned against it. Today’s song is from the pen of Naqsh Lyallpuri. The music direction of this film is by Vedpal.

This is a ‘villain’s den’ song. Kum Kum has reached the adda of Khan. Khan is enamored by her beauty and wants her to dance for him. At first she refuses. He then promises her that no harm whatsoever will come to her and that he takes the responsibility to protect her. Since she has a purpose i.e. to locate her brother, hesitatingly she agrees. And the song follows. The song is delightful and melodious, and a very pleasing listen. When the song ends, Madan Puri makes an entrance. The film is available online, in case you may be curious as to what happens next. 🙂

With this song, the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’ makes a debut on our blog today. Enjoy.

Song – Aankhen Pyaasi Lab Hain Pyaase  (Gunehgaar) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Naqsh Layallpuri, MD – Vedpal

Lyrics

pyaala bhar ke
jo hamne poochha
jee kisko pehle
kahaan se pehle
tamaam mehfil pukaar uthi
ji humko pehle
yahaan se pehle

aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

masti ka paighaam banin hain
zulfon ki rangeen ghataayen
masti ka paighaam banin hain
zulfon ki rangeen ghataayen
saaz dilon ke chhed rahi hai. . .
paayal ki betaab sadaayen
paayal ki betaab sadaayen
chhed inhin saazon ki dhun par
chhed inhin saazon ki dhun par
naghma naya saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

aaj utha na koi pyaasa
mehfil ki awaaz yahi hai
aaj utha na koi pyaasa
mehfil ki awaaz yahi hai
jaam pe jaam diye ja saaqi
jeene ka andaaz yahi hai
jeene ka andaaz yahi hai
roz kahaan laati hain raaten
roz kahaan laati hain raaten
aisi fizaa saaqia
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया

मस्ती का पैग़ाम बनीं हैं
ज़ुल्फों की रंगीन घटाएँ
मस्ती का पैग़ाम बनीं हैं
ज़ुल्फों की रंगीन घटाएँ
साज दिलों के छेड़ रही है॰॰॰
पायल की बेताब सदाएं
पायल की बेताब सदाएं
छेड़ इन्हीं साज़ों की धुन पर
छेड़ इन्हीं साज़ों की धुन पर
नग़मा नया साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया

आज उठे ना कोई प्यासा
महफिल की आवाज़ यही है
आज उठे ना कोई प्यासा
महफिल की आवाज़ यही है
जाम पे जाम दिये जा साक़ी
जीने का अंदाज़ यही है
जीने का अंदाज़ यही है
रोज़ कहाँ लाती हैं रातें
रोज़ कहाँ लाती हैं रातें
ऐसी फ़िज़ा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया

Missing Films of 1960s – 61
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this post, this series enters the sixties. 😀 😀
No no, I do not mean to say that we are entering the 1960s, we did that long back. In fact this blog itself started with the 1960s – the song “Miley Na Phool To. . .” from the film ‘Anokhi Raat’ is from the 1960s. With this post, we now come upon the 61st episode of this series. The home work assignment given by Katie Ben, has now come a long way in adding more new, I mean, as yet unrepresented films to the blog. This series was initiated on 20th September, 2015, and we are now into the 29th month that this series has been pursued. In the process, we have added 61 more films from the 1960s, to this blog. Some more interesting details about this journey, coming up in the next episode.

Today’s debut film is ‘Arabian Nights’ from 1967. This film also has an alternate title – ‘Panic In Baghdad’. The film is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for the banner of Ramkishan Films, Bombay. The star cast is listed as Ajit, Mumtaz, Bhagwan, Rajan Haksar, Shyam Kumar, Ram Mohan, Madhumati, Hercules, Prince Arjun, Julian, Heeralal, Mohan Choti, Poornima, Bela Bose, Azad.

The film has six songs listed. Music direction is by the duo of Lala Sattaar. Regulars will remember, this duo also belongs to the trio of music directors Lala Asar Sattaar. Three song writers have contributed their talent to this film – Akhtar Romani, Aish Kanwal and Madhukr Rajasthani. This song is written by Madhukar Rajasthani. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

From the sound of it, this is a dance song. Looking at the star cast, it can only be guessed that the song may have been picturized on either Bela Bose or Madhumati. I would like to say Bela Bose, but then that is just a guess. I would request our more knowledgeable readers to add more information, if available, about this film, and the picturization of this song.

With this post, the film ‘Arabian Nights’ of 1967 opens its account on our blog.

Song – Husn Ke Jalwe Hain Jawaan  (Arabian Nights) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Lala Sattaar

Lyrics

husn ke jalwe hain jawaan
mehfil mein hain raazdaan
dil ko sambhaloon
ya khud ko sambhaaloon
ishaara to kar meharba..aan
husn ke jalwe hain jawaan

raat bhar ye shama saath degi
raat bhar ye shama saath degi
jaan tujh pe luta ke kahegi
ye mohabbat hamaari
hamaari rahegi
hum rahen na rahen
hum rahen na rahen
baaki rahega nishaa..aan
husn ke jalwe hain jawaan
mehfil mein hain raazdaan
dil ko sambhaloon
ya khud ko sambhaaloon
ishaara to kar meharba..aan
husn ke jalwe hain jawaan

mayqade mein nazar se pilaane
mayqade mein nazar se pilaane
eid ka chaand niklaa deewaane
ye muqaddar tumhin ko diya hai khuda ne
koi piye na piye
koi piye na piye
tum to piyo jaan e jaa..aan
husn ke jalwe hain jawaan
mehfil mein hain raazdaan
dil ko sambhaloon
ya khud ko sambhaaloon
ishaara to kar meharba..aan
husn ke jalwe hain jawaan

Missing Films of 1960s – 59
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

So, on the 3501st day on this blog, I introduce to you the debut film for today.

The film is ‘Sardaar’ from 1967. This year continues to be very fertile, and still another four, and maybe five more films from this year are next in line.

The production banner is M.U.N. films Bombay, and the film is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The film is categorized as a costume drama, with the cast of actors listed as Dara Singh, Sheikh Mukhtar, Ajit, Nishi, Helen, Jayant, Chandrashekhar, Tiwari, Maruti, Arvind Pandya, and Jeevankala. Now this is a very impressive ensemble – we have Sheikh Mukhtar, and Dara Singh, and Ajit, and Chandrashekhar, and Nishi, and Helen, and Jayant, and Tiwari – wow.

The film has seven songs listed. All the songs are written by Asad Bhopali, and the music is composed by Usha Khanna. As I scan the list of songs, some are very familiar and popular songs, and I wonder this film has managed to stay away from being represented on our blog so far.

Today’s song is about the memories of childhood love. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Once you start listening to the song, I am sure the memory cells will respond – ok, well this one, yes, it is a familiar favorite from the radio listening days. Enjoy.

Song – Mera Tumhara Afsaana Hai Kitna Puraana  (Sardaar) (1967) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo
mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

kyon ji tumko yaad to hongi
pehli pehli pyaar ki baaten
pehli pehli pyaar ki baaten
chhoti si ik bhool pe laakhon
hoti then taqraar ki baaten
hoti then taqraar ki baaten
mera wo rooth ke jaana
tumhaara manaana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

din mein sau sau baar tumhaare
paas aane ko ji kehta hai
paas aane ko ji kehta hai
in aankhon mein daal ke aankhen
kho jaane ko ji kehta hai
kho jaane ko ji kehta hai
chhod ke dil tadpaana
mohabbat nibhaana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

mera tumhara afsaana
hai kitna purana
zara yaad karo
bachpan ka zamaana
piya yaad karo
zara yaad karo

मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना
है कितना पुराना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो

मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना

क्यों जी तुमको याद तो होंगी
पहली पहली प्यार की बातें
पहली पहली प्यार की बातें
छोटी सी इक भूल पे लाखों
होती थीं तक़रार की बातें
होती थीं तक़रार की बातें
मेरा वो रूठ के जाना
तुम्हारा मनाना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो

दिन में सौ सौ बार तुम्हारे
पास आने को जी कहता है
पास आने को जी कहता है
इन आँखों में दाल के आँखें
खो जाने को जी कहता है
खो जाने को जी कहता है
छोड़ के दिल तड़पाना
मोहब्बत निभाना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो

मेरा तुम्हारा अफसाना
है कितना पुराना
ज़रा याद करो
बचपन का ज़माना
पिया याद करो
ज़रा याद करो

Missing Films of 1960s – 58
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1966 and 1967 appears to be very fertile years, as far as discovering obscure films and songs is concerned. I start searching for the films from these years, and I continue finding films and songs that seem to have been lost in time. A good number of them have already appeared online in one form or another. But there is still a good set that seem to be as yet unavailable online.

Today’s film – ‘Sheba And Hercules’ from 1967, is one of them. After some earlier comments from some readers on the blog and also some followers on YouTube, which corrected my statement about the song being posted for the first time, I try to be more cautious, and apply more effort to search the song before posting. So for this song today, I searched using many different options, but I am not able to trace any song of this film online. But I do not claim that the song is making a debut online, because I have been held in error of such statements before. So I will say that as far as my searches could show, I did not find this film and this song online as yet.

The name of the film itself indicates an obscure and a lost film. As dear Arun ji has also noted in one of his articles earlier, we can depend on the producers of Hindi films to create links across histories and across geographies; even to the extent of combining factual history and fictional characters. This endeavor to connect and to integrate disparate persona, events and aeons, is really ‘commendable’ – these producers and these films are working towards not just national integration, but also international integration. These producers deserve a big applause for their effort. 🙂

Case in point is this film. I am going by the title – since I have no clue as to the content and the storyline of the film. Hercules is a Roman God whose stories are part of the Roman Mythology. Incidentally, in Greek mythology also, a similar Hero/God appears, with a slightly altered name – Heracles. There are many similarities in the stories of these two, across these two cultures.

Queen Sheba is very much a historical persona, whose details are found in Biblical history, and from there connects are found in Jewish and Islamic history also. There is archaeological evidence that also supports this historical records. Sheba was the Queen of the kingdom of Saba – area in the southern Arabic peninsula that is current day Yemen. Her historical record is contemporaneous with King Solomon, who was the king of Israel in circa 970-931 BC. There is a detailed record of Queen Sheba’s visit to Israel, accompanied by a grand retinue, and of bringing many gifts of spices, dry fruits and other items, loaded on camels. The Jewish history records that the spices brought by Queen Sheba were of the type never seen and used before in Israel. There is a record of their conversations, in which Sheba asks many questions from Solomon, who is considered to be the wisest man who ever lived on this earth. After being satisfied with the answers she receives, she returns to her lands. Historians have recorded this visit as one of the earliest examples of a trade and cultural exchange delegation going from one nation to another.

But I digress. The point I am trying to arrive at is the these two mythological / historical personae – Hercules and Sheba – could never have possibly been contemporaneous in person. However, still, the producers of Hindi films have found a happy meeting ground for these two, in the film titled ‘Sheba And Hercules’. I would request other readers and friends to please add some information about the storyline of this film.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of Meena Films, Bombay and is directed by BS Chaudhry. The star cast includes Randhawa, Vijaya Chaudhary, Indira, Heeralal, Kamal Mehra, Tuntun, Rajan Kapoor, Trilok Singh, and Saudagar Singh amongst others. Geet Kosh tells us that there are six songs in this film. All songs have been written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and the music is by a gentleman named Chandan. Now this is a name that I have not encountered before. As I tried to look through the Geet Kosh, I am not able to locate any other reference to this name as a music director. Quite likely, this person, as many others who have given music in one or two films, would probably have been an assistant music director, and then got a chance to try his hand as an independent artist. But after one outing, did not get any more work in the industry.

The singing voice in this song is of Krishna Kalle. This is a song of ‘expression of love’, in which the lady is expressing her magnanimity that she is a benefactor, and that as a favor unto him, she has fallen in love with the gentleman to whom this song is being addressed. Now that is quite a thought. 🙂

So with this song, the film ‘Sheba And Hercules’ makes a debut on our blog. And so does the music director Chandan. I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film, and the music director.

Song – Jaao Ji Tum Pe Hum Merbaan Ho Gaye  (Sheba And Hercules) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Chandan

Lyrics

jaao ji

jaao ji

Missing Films of 1960s – 57
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s debut film is ‘Do Dushman’ from 1967.  And the song is a delightful dance duet sung by Asha Bhosle and Kamal Barot.

The films belongs to the stunt genre. It is produced under the banner of Co-operative Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Mohammed Husain. The eminent star cast consists of Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Ajeet, Sheikh Mukhtar, Veena, Ulhas, Amar, Bela Bose, Agha, and Meenakshi amongst others.

The film has a total of 8 songs listed, all of which are penned by Aziz Qaisi. The name of music director’s name is listed as Manohar. In all likelihood, this is Monohar Lal Sonik, the blind music director, who also gave music as part of the Sonik Omi duo.

The song is a fast paced dance song. Since there are two lead singing voices, it is safe to assume that this would have been a twin dance on screen. The film seems to be available, as one more song of this film is available online as a video clip. However, this song is available as an audio only so far. From the sound and the pace of the songs, my hunch is that Bela Bose would be one of the dancers on screen. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to help add more information about this film and this song.

So with this post, the film ‘Do Dushman’ of 1967 opens its account on our blog today. Enjoy this fast pace dance number.

Missing Films of 1960s – 54
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Mohabbat Aur Jung’ seems to be a rare and obscure film from 1967. The video of this song is available online, but not much information about the film is available. Existence of the video indicates that the film is in public domain. However, neither the film, nor any other song from this film is as yet uploaded.

The information in the Geet Kosh is also not complete. It identifies this as a stunt film, from the banner of Uppal Productions, Bombay. The list of actors, and the director’s name, both are not available. The uploader has indicated a list of names, viz., Radha Saluja, Ram Mohan, Helen, Shankar, purportedly to be a short list of actor names in this film. Film’s director is S Azim. The list of actors is Randhawa, Helen, Indira, Sunder, Ram Mohan, Sherry, Sujata Bakshi.
[Ed Note: The names of actors, and that of the director are provided by dear Sadanand ji, based on the information on the film poster. Thanks Sadanand ji.]

In terms of songs also, only two songs are listed in the Geet Kosh, with an indication that there are more. The lyricist is identified as Taj Bhopali and the music direction is by Iqbal Qureshi.

This song is sung by Krishna Kalle. I am not certain of the identity of the on screen performer. Is she a young Radha Saluja, a few years younger than what we see her as in ‘Doraaha’, her better known film from 1971. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help to confirm or correct.
[Ed Note: As per information provided by our dear Prakash ji, the on screen performer is Sujata Bakshi. Thanks Prakash ji.]

The song is a ‘calling the beloved’ type of song, as the protagonist is frolicking in the woods and in the waters of a river, singing the words that beckon the beloved.

With this song, the film ‘Mohabbat Aur Jung’ makes a debut on our blog today.

Song – Samaa Khoobsurat Hai, Tumhaari Zaroorat Hai  (Mohabbat Aur Jung) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Taj Bhopali, MD – Iqbal Qureshi

ए महबूबी जान ए खूबी

आज तो मुझको होश नहीं है
जुल्फ कहीं आँचल भी कहीं है
मैं भी हसीं हूँ
दिल भी हसीं है
ये दुनिया ख्वाबों की ज़मीं है
ए महबूबी जान ए खूबी

मौजों का पैगाम है आ जा
जलवा जलवा जाम है आ जा
रंगीं रंगीं शाम है आ जा
तुझ से ज़रा सा काम है आ जा
ए महबूबी जान ए खूबी
सब कुछ है
तू कहाँ
तू कहाँ
तू कहाँ
तू कहाँ
समां खूबसूरत है
तुम्हारी ज़रूरत है
बहारों से पूछूं मैं
बहारों से पूछूं मैं
ए महबूबी जान ए खूबी

This is the 200th song of N Datta as a music director in the blog.

Missing Films of 1960s – 53
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Lal Lal Gaal. . .

I know I do not need to say more. Everyone is so familiar this song. And the special thing about this song? In my humble opinion, this probably is the fastest melody that any music director has got Rafi Sb to sing. The year is 1957 and the film – ‘Mr X’.

And then, this same music director, ten years later, has got the booming voice Mahendra Kapoor to sing the softest of the melodies – “Chaand Bhi Koi Deewaana Hai. . .”. The year is 1968 and the film – ‘Apna Ghar Apni Kahaani’.

Remembering N Datta – well quite late for his anniversary (both of which fell in December). And so this post has also been in the making, for well about a month.

Searching for information about him, not much details are available about his early years. So much so that multiple different web sites repeat mostly the same few sentences. They all write that he was born 1927 in Aroba, a small village in Goa. And that he ran away from home at the age of 12, and came to Bombay to learn music. Incidentally, I also came across one article online, which is based on an interview with Roop Naik, son of N Datta. The information provided by him is different from what is available everywhere else.

According to Roop Naik, his father N Datta (full name Dattaram Baburao Naik) was actually born in Bombay. He was not even two years old when his father passed away. After this tumultuous event in life, he and his mother move back to their native village, where the child Dattaram was brought up by his maternal uncle. Close to their village home, there was a temple, where weekly sittings of bhajan singing used to take place. He was quite enamoured by the ‘Abhang’ singing of these Bhajans, and never used to miss a session. During this period, he learnt to play harmonium, and would sometimes accompany the singers in the temple.

Another high point for him used to be when the travelling performing groups would visit the village. Music was very much within him, and so he was attracted by these public performances. And so, at home, he once expressed his wish to learn music. The dressing down that he received from his uncle, convinced him that his passion to learn music, and his family’s environment simply did not go together. So, at the age of 12, this young pre-teen kid, ran away from home and came to Bombay.

This period of his life, before he started getting recognition in the industry, is an unknown. No documented information is available. Lata Mangeshkar had mentioned once that she did meet him in 1946 (he would be 19 years old then), and that he was working as an assistant to a music director whose name she recalls as Kedar Shinde. The Ed. Note with this sentence observes that she probably was talking about Ramakrisna Shinde, a music director of Marathi films, who later also gave music under the pseudo name of ‘Hemant Kedar’.

The young aspirant worked as an assistant to Ghulam Haider Sb. He would also continue to participate in temple programs. He would be part of the ‘prabhat feris’, a very early morning bhjan kirtan session, that is taken out in a procession format, passing through the streets and by-lanes of a certain neighbourhood. It is said that at one of these ‘prabhat feries’, Burman Dada (SD Burman) witnessed his singing, and called upon him to know more about him and his capabilities. That started a long and fruitful collaborative partnerships, and the young Dattaram worked as an assistant in films like ‘Baazi’, ‘Bahar’, ‘Sazaa’ and ‘Ek Nazar’ (1951), ‘Jaal’ (1952), ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ (1953) and ‘Angarey’ (1954).

During the making of ‘Baazi’, Dattaram was introduced to future stalwarts like Sahir Ludhianvi and Raj Khosla, and struck lifelong friendships. When Raj Khosla got his first break as an independent director (film ‘Milaap’, 1955), he got N Datta the first assignment as an independent music director. And from that juncture onward, one sees his career got from strength to strength – ‘Marine Drive’ (1955), ‘Chandra Kanta’ (1956), ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke’ (1957), ‘Light House (1958), ‘Sadhna’ (1958), ‘Black Cat’ (1959), ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959), ‘Dharam Putra’ (1961), and more.

I have just listed a sampler. The total films listed for him are 55. Of these, about 22 films came in or before 1961. Two important points to be noted here. 1959 seems to be his most prolific year – seven films released this year, with music by him. Secondly, his friendship with Sahir Ludhianvi, got him his first assignment with the banner of BR Films. His first film with BR Chopra is ‘Sadhna’ (1958). Next, we him again with the BR banner in ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959) and ‘Dharamputra’ (1961). Just the names of these films are enough indication as to how wonderfully this relationship was developing, and the team of Sahir Sb and N Datta was producing phenomenal music together.

But then, fate intervened, and quite cruelly too. Just in his mid thirties, N Datta suffered a heart attack. The episode left him out of circulation for some months. He recovered. However, besides the health issues now in life, N Datta started another battle – a fear for his own life. It made him somewhat of an introvert person. He would be very afraid for his life, because of any episode of ill health. And his work suffered too. By the time he came out this medical emergency, BR banner had moved on. Ravi had been engaged as the music director. The first outcome was ‘Gumraah’. The commercial success of this film kind of excluded N Datta from the BR brand, for all times in the future.

The quality of his work also suffered. He continued to compose, and continue to create some fabulous and memorable songs. But his work would now be confined to B/C grade films. He continued to work till 1980 – his last film released is ‘Chehre Pe Chehra’. After that, no work probably came his way. He passed away in 1987. His later years were a struggle to keep afloat.

With today’s song, I introduce this film ‘Albela Mastaana’ from 1967. The film is produced under the banner of Pragya Pictures, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The star cast includes Kishore Kumar, Bhagwan, Kaveri, Kundan, Aruna Irani, Nayna, Rajan Haksar, and Asha Nadkarni amongst others. Five songs are listed for this film, all being written by Prem Dhawan.

This song is a wonderful melancholy that is sung by Asha Bhosle. The video of this film is now available. In the visual, we see Asha Nadkarni lip syncing this song on screen. A song that in as of itself, needs to placed together with such Asha Bhosle songs like “Baithe Hain Rehguzar Par. . .” and “Tujh Se Bichhde Tere Deewaane To Mar Jaayenge”. Lovely rendition, pulling at the strands of the heart.

Song – Phir Dil Mein Dard Jaaga  (Albela Mastaana) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

phir dil mein dard jaaga

phir dil mein dard jaaga
phir yaad teri aayi
aaja sahi na jaaye
hum se teri judaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga

badhne laga andhera
jaane ho kab savera
palkon se aansuon ki
hum ne shama jalaai
hum ne shama jalaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga
phir yaad teri aayi
aaja sahi na jaaye
hum se teri judaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga

khamosh hai zamaana
kis se kahen fasaana
khamosh hai zamaana
kis se kahen fasaana
apni sadaa bhi ab to
deti nahin sunaai
deti nahin sunaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga
phir yaad teri aayi
aaja sahi na jaaye
hum se teri judaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga

फिर दिल में दर्द जागा

फिर दिल में दर्द जागा
फिर याद तेरी आई
आजा सही ना जाये
हमसे तेरी जुदाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा

बढ़ने लगा अंधेरा
जाने हो कब सवेरा
बढ़ने लगा अंधेरा
जाने हो कब सवेरा
पलकों से आंसुओं की
हमने शमा जलाई
हमने शमा जलाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा
फिर याद तेरी आई
आजा सही ना जाये
हमसे तेरी जुदाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा

खामोश है ज़माना
किस को कहें फसाना
खामोश है ज़माना
किस को कहें फसाना
अपनी सदा भी अब तो
देती नहीं सुनाई
देती नहीं सुनाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा
फिर याद तेरी आई
आजा सही ना जाये
हमसे तेरी जुदाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा
