Today’s song is from a C grade Costume film of the 50s, Aan Baan-56. It was made by D D Kashyap, under his own banner, Kashyap Productions, Bombay. Needless to mention that the film was directed by himself. Music was by Husnlal-Bhagatram, with assistance from krishan Chander. The cast of the film was Ajit, Mahipal, Nalini Jaywant, Usha Kiran, Pran, Ulhas, Manmohan Krishna and many others.

On Saturday, 16th May morning, I got a call on my Mobile. I picked it up and saw that it was flashing name of Bharatbhai and his photo. A little surprised to get his call at early morning hours, I took the call and as usual said,” Good Morning Bharat ji. Aaj subah subah yaad kiya ?” There was a pause and an unfamiliar voice said, ” Main Bharat ji ka beta baat kar raha hoon.” I knew he was ill. My mind suddenly became alert. For next 5 minutes his son was giving me details of his illness and finally he ended with those dreaded words, ” last Friday,8th May ko raat mein 1230 baje Bharatbhai ki death ho gayi “.

I was stunned. I gave my condolences to the bereaved family and kept the phone. I sat still for five minutes. Then I saw a missed call from Sadanand ji. I gave him a call. He too had got the news. We shared our thoughts and it was decided that Sadanand ji will announce this news on our WA group.

Old people parting is not unusual, but when the departed one is close to you or a family member, one does feel the pain. Bharatbhai was around 87 year old, recently he had a Hip Replacement operation and thereafter he was not well. I had spoken to him in the Hospital as well as when he came back home also. However, his going was a pinching shock.

I came to know Bharatbhai in or around 2013, through our Blog. Those days we did not have the WA group. We started exchanging songs and related matters on phone and e-mails. Then he and Nitin ji came calling to my house in early 2014, first time an Atulite visited me. I was very thrilled. I introduced my wife to them. We had deeper friendship after that. One of his friends, Mr. Chavda, stays in our building and is my friend too. During the last 7 years we visited each other’s houses many times, for meetings or otherwise also. When some important person used to visit me, I used to call him also. Thus he had met Biren Kothari, Shishir krishna Sharma, Rajnikumar Pandya, AK ji and others first time at my place only.

In 2018, he, myself and Sadanand ji visited Surat to meet Harish Raghuvanshi ji. Even in this age, his enthusiasm and memory was praiseworthy. The last we met was in Sadanand ji’s house. He missed one meeting in my house in this January, due to his health issues.

Bharat ji was Tech Savvy at this age also. He had a good collection of books. He actually xeroxed few books from his collection and gave me, on my request. Jolly and friendly Bharat ji can not be forgotten easily. Losing him is a great loss. I pray for his Eternal Peace and Attainment of Moksha !

Life goes on……

Today’s film was a routine film. The period in which such films attracted audiences had long ceased, but still some such films were made, albeit in much less numbers. Costume films had a fixed theme of story. Good and Old King, bad Vazir or close relative, beautiful daughter, her handsome singing lover, final sword fighting and all is well in the end. Same story with some ship-shaping here and there used to be presented. In this connection I remember one thing.

In 2004, a book called “Why we tell stories’, written by Christopher Booker was published. It is a book having more than 700 pages-728 pages to be exact. The book says “There are only 7 (Seven) basic plots in the whole world. They are recycled again and again in Novels, movies, Plays and Operas. These are
1.Overcoming the Monster
2.Rags to riches
3.The quest
4.Voyage and return
5.Rebirth
6.Comedy and
7.Tragedy “.

After this book was published, there was a chaos and criticism started. ‘New York Times’ also jumped in. The author coolly replied all points and stuck to his statements. If we look at Hindi films, I personally feel that what the author has said is true in our case. Only thing is that our film stories are always a clever mixture of all or some of the above points. A peculiar thing in our film industry is the ” Story Department” in some film production companies. Members of this department have Extra Para Perception and Extraordinary imagination. They can mix all 7 story elements in one ‘Khichdi’ and make a film. There are many cases where over enthusiasm on their part has killed the Box office prospects of even good films.

I quote her an example. Prakash pictures had become famous for their 2 Block buster hit films based on Ramayan stories. So when their third Ramayan film ” Ram Baan”-48 came, anxious audiences crowded the theatres, but within few days, the theatres were almost empty and the film flopped so badly that it could be called a ” super duper Flop ” ! The reason ? The story department of Prakash pictures and their wildest imaginations !

The team of Mohanlal Dave and Pt. Girish twisted the original Ramayan story so crudely (or cruelly?), that the audience could not digest it. The film showed a) Shurpankha’s swayamvar in Ravana’s darbar – which is not in Ramayana b) Sita wants in this film the Suvarn Mrig skin for NOT her Kanchuki, but as a gift to Laxman’s wife Urmila ! Too much wild imagination. c) Ravan gives his Sandals to Seeta to walk out of the Laxman Rekha…utter foolishness and finally d) Shabari goes to Rama to invite him and when he comes, introduces Hanuman and Sugriva to Rama. She describes how Ravana took Seeta to Lanka etc. Total lies !

These story department twists to Ramayana story, put Prakash Pictures to such a loss, that they came out of it only after Baiju Bawra, 4 years later. The story of film Aan Baan -56 is also a twisted form of the set pattern. Nothing really new in it. Naturally the film was not a success. The director D D Kashyap was an all rounder in films.

DHARAM DEV KASHYAP aka D.D.Kashyap was born in 1910 at Jalalpur in UP(now Uttar Pradesh,but earlier called United Province), in a middle class family without any connection to films or music. When DD came to the college in Lucknow, he was awed by the silent movies. By 1931 the Talkie started and he decided films as his career. He knew that it is only Bombay that can extend opportunities to him. Reaching Bombay, he laboriously worked up his way,doing menial jobs on the way, to the V.Shantaram camp. He was a learned man with a flair for writing, hence he got a chance to become an assistant to Munshi Aziz, while writing dialogues for AADMI-1939.(I checked the credits of Aadmi and truly his name features in the list of assistants, in the Dialogues section.) I can only imagine how he must have felt then.
Looking at his enthusiasm, Shantaram promoted him as one of his asst.Directors in PADOSI-1941. He even did a cameo role of OMKAR in Padosi.
Now he had enough experience and his first film as a Director was NAI KAHANI-1943. Then came a series of films, Chand, Nargis, Aaj ki Raat, pyar ki Jeet, Badi Behan, Kamal ke phool, Aaram, Do sitare, badnam, Naya Ghar, Shama Parwana, Aan baan, Halaku, Maya(Dev Anand film), and Dulhan ek raat ki-67.

he has also written the story of 10 o’clock-58.

He was an actor, writer, s/play writer, dialogue writer, producer as well.
Actually he produced Badi behan-a hit film, Aaram-another hit and Shama Parwana.

He died on 5-9-1988,at Bombay.

Today’s song is a duet of Asha and Mubarak Begum, which, I guess, is the only such duet. The song has a suspicious resemblance to another song from a later film – which I am unable to recollect the name now. If any reader knows, please write in comment section.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Aan Baan”(1972) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised as a baaraat song with Rajendra Kumar lip syncing the song as part of the baaraat, being the brother of the dulha. It turns out that he was in love with the dulhan Raakhi all these days and he is doing some sort of “sacrifice” by letting his brother marry his lady love. Those were the days when Hindi movies had some actors who would “sacrifice” out of thin air even when no sacrificing was called for. 🙂

Nevertheless, this song is the sixth and final son from “Aan Baan”(1972) to appear in the blog. with this song, “Aan Baan”(1972) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Ke lo ham aaye dulha bhaiyya ke baarati ban ke (Aan Baan)(1972) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

dil ke gulshan se ae
haay dil ke gulshan se
laaye hain jo chun chun ke
ke lo hum aaye dulha bhaiya ke baaraati ban ke
ke lo hum aaye dulha bhaiya ke baaraati ban ke

wahaan talak khushiyaan hi khushiyaan

Here is the fifth song from “Aan Baan” (1972) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is a philosophical song which is lip synced by Rajendra Kumar who is seen lipsyncing this song in a jail where he is jailed alongwith several others. Or is it a mental asylum ? I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

Personally, whenever I see a “jail” song, I am automatically reminded of the jail song of “Kaaliya”(1981), which was a philosophical song too and that was also sung by Rafi.


Song-Naam nahin koi dhaam nahin (Aan Baan)(1972) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

sun lo poorab paschhim uttar dakshin ke ae logon

gair tera ho jaaye
bhaasha ko deewaar banaa ke
kyun tu bair kamaye
bol pyaar ki boli aisi

dil ki bhaasha sab ki bhaasha
jaan le o anjaan
kya raaja kya rank yahaan pe
sab hain ek samaan
naam nahin koi dhaam nahin

naam nahin koi dhaam nahin

bura na dekho

Rakhi Gulzar was born on 15th August 1947. She wasn’t exactly a midnight’s child, but was born a few hours later. She grew up to be a stunningly beautiful woman and an accomplished actress. She had large honey coloured eyes, a round face and lovely features. She debuted in Hindi films with the successful Jeevan Mrityu along with Dharmendra. She went on to establish herself as a successful leading woman with hits like Sharmilee, Paras, Kabhi Kabhie, Daag, Trishul and Doosra Admi (my personal favorite).

I am aware of a movie called “Aan Baan” (1956), but it turns out that there was another movie of the same name in 1972 as well. I am surprised that I should know about the 1956 movie of this name , but be totally oblivious of the 1972 movie of this name.

“Aan Baan” (1972) is one of the last movies of Rajendra Kumar as a hero. In this movie, he was paired with Rakhi, a heroine half his age. In any case, his days as Jubilee Kumar were behind him as by that time Rajesh Khanna had taken over as the new box office God by that time.
