Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 58
————————————————————————————–

This date (29 June) ten years ago (2012) saw four songs from four movies getting covered in the blog. Here are their details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6147 Gaawo gaawo ae mere saadhu Miss Frontier Mail (1936) Movie YIPPEED by now
6148 Suno suno ban ke praani Amar Jyoti (1936) 7 Songs out of 11 covered
6149 Rang rangeela saanwraa mohe mil gaya jamuna paar Baarood(1960) Movie YIPPEED by now
6150 Maut aayegi maut aani hai Naghmaa(1953) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can observe that three movies (out of four) whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with only one movie that is still eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (29 June 2022).

This movie is “Amar Jyoti”(1936). “Amar Jyoti”(1936) was directed by V Shantaram for Prabhat Film Company Poona. The movie had Durga Khote, Shanta Apte, Vaasanti, Karuna devi, Chandra Mohan, V.Nandrekar, Gajendra, K.Narain Kale, S.K. kulkarni, Vasant Desai etc in it.

Seven songs from “Amar Jyoti”(1936) have been covered in the blog so far. Here is the eighth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Vasant Desai. Pt Narottam Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Master Krishna Rao.

The song is picturised on Vasant Desai (I guess) and Durga Khote.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Rafi Sahab’s legendary associations: 01
————————————————————-

Rafi sahab’s association with Vasant Desai started in 1949 with ‘Nai Ta’aleem” and “Narsimha Avtar” and continued till the very last music score by Vasant Desai in Shaque (1976)(Ek dil hai ek jaan hai (Shaque)). Vasant Desai’s active career as a music director is just a bit longer, from 1942 to 1976.

I think this is the first time I am writing a post for a song composed by Vasant Desai. I heard of Vasant Desai in childhood, when my mother used to talk about how he had died in an accident caused by faulty lift, whenever a song from films like Goonj Uthhi Shehnai, Jhanak Jhanak Paayal baaje or Guddi, would play on radio.

This particular song I am presenting is a Rafi solo, only such song in the film ‘Amar Jyoti’ 1965. I was not familiar with it earlier, but it sounded so familiar and sweet on first hearing that I wanted to do the post for it immediately. I had thought of including it in the series of ‘Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II)”, but on checking I found that the series is nicely poised at song no. 20 with this song.

So I will conclude that series there, and not have any more songs in that series.

I will start a new series, on various associations of Rafi Sahab with different music directors and singers and lyricist, which left a mark on the hindi film music of the golden era.

Two such collaborations are covered in this song, where music director Vasant Desai, is composing a song with Rafi sahab’s phenomenal singing capabilities, his variations, and Bharat Vyas has written the lyrics. Bharat Vyas is a veteran of mythological films, for which Rafi sahab has sung countless songs under different music directors. I could count 36 songs by Vasant Desai in the excel sheet, many of which are not yet posted in the blog. There are 154 songs written by Bharat Vyas in the excel sheet. Keeping a margin of errors, 150 songs can be taken as written by Bharat Vyas from 1949 to 1982.

The data in our blog and the excel sheet maintained by Atul ji would be a lot accurate in this regard, as we complete the tally of these artist in the blog.
We are a long way away from doing this, judging by the total stats of these three artists in the blog:

Artist Songs in the blog Career tally of songs in HFM
Vasant Desai 181 390
Bharat Vyas 408 1246
Mohammed Rafi 3110 4846

The following 5 songs of Amar Jyoti (1965) are posted in the blog so far:

Song Date of posting
Kalpana ke ghan baraste 9 June 2012
Mera pyaar tadapta hai 3 May 2014
Sambhaal ke qadam rakhna 25 Decmber 2018
Jeewan bhar ham tum saath rahe 22 January 2020
Jhan jhan jhan jhan baaje paayaliyaa 1 February 2021

This solo Rafi song is a classic study of how Rafi Sahab is a legend. Saying it for the umpteenth time is just not enough, as his voice and some inner aura of purity comes oozing out of the words being uttered. The song is composition for Rafi Sahab and him alone. I have no qualms in stating that only Rafi sahab could have elevated this simple and sweet composition to the level that he takes, and makes it an example of how singing could be, from the soul.


Song-Wo phoole phoole phirte hain (Amar Jyoti)(1965) Singer-Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Vasant Desai
Chorus

Lyrics

aa aa aa

Wo phoole phoole phirte hain
jin ki qismat ko phool mile
ham kis qismat par naaz karen en
ham kis qismat par naaz Karen
jin ko thokar ki dhool mile
wo phoole phoole phirte hain

aa aa aa
aa aa aa

ham ne bhi sitaare ae maange thhe
kaliyon ki tamanna ki ham ne
khushiyon se sahaaraa maangaa jab
khushiyon se sahaaraa maangaa jab
to haathh diyaa ham ko gham ne
unn ke sehre pe moti tange
ham ko sehraa ke babool mile
ham kis qismat par naaz karen
jin ko thokar ki dhool mile
wo phoole phoole phirte hain

aa aa aa

unn se kya shikaayat hai ham ko
jin ki taqdeer mein tu bhi hai
apni to kinaare par aa kar
apni to kinaare par aa kar
har baar ye kashti doobi hai
manzil ki meharbaani unn par
jin ko raahen anukool mile
ham kis qismat par naaz Karen
jin ko thokar ki dhool mile
wo phoole phoole phirte hain

Lata Mangeshkar worked with 20 music directors and 19 lyricists in these 46 movies released in 1965. Shankar Jaikishan with 340 songs in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar were the leading music directors for Lata Mangeshkar followed by C Ramchandra with 273 songs. Other top music directors for Lata Mangeshkar were Chitragupta (201), Madan Mohan (142), Roshan (129), Anil Biswas (120), Hemant Kumar (112), S D Burman (112), Naushad (109), Husnlal Bhagatram (108). Together these ten music directors composed 1646 songs out of 2833 songs that Lata Mangeshkar had sung in Hindi movies till end of 1965. The top seven lyricists till end of 1964 for Lata Mangeshkar were Rajinder Krishan (446), Shailendra (338), Hasrat Jaipuri (234), Prem Dhawan (178), Bharat Vyas (173), Shakeel Badayuni (169), Majrooh Sultanpuri (147).

Lata Mangeshkar tied up with music director B N Bali, Lala Asar Sattar and Prem Dhawan for the first time in movies released in 1965. Ash Kanwal, Gulzar, Jawed Anwar were the lyricists with whom she worked for the first time in movies of 1965.

Lata Mangeshkar was singing over 20 duet songs with Rafi every year till then, but in the movies released in 1965, these two singers did not have even a single duet ! Her main male partner in singing duets this year was Mahendra Kapoor with whom she sang 7 duets followed by Mukesh (5 duets).

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1965 :

Total upto 1965 772 movies 2414 2833 1992 642 144 53

It can be seen from the table of 1965 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 91 songs in movies released in 1965. It was for the first time since 1948 that the number of songs sung by her in a year fell below three figures.

As many as 83 of these 91 songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 42 movies of 1965 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 37 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 8 Lata songs belonging to 5 movies of 1965 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Amar Jyoti”(1965). This fantasy movie was directed by Raman Desai for Bombay Movietone, Bombay. The movie had L Vijaylaxmi, Mahipal, Ulhas, Kamal Mehra, Sapru, Sarla Devi, Gop Krishn etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it, including five Lata Mangeshkar songs- three solos and two male duets with Mahendra Kapoor. Four songs from the movie (including three Lata Mangeshkar songs) have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth Lata Mangeshkar song from “Amar Jyoti”(1965). This song is a duet with Mahendra Kapoor. Female Chorus can also he heard. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

This lesser known song is a rare song and only its audio seems to be available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.
The audio is not clear and I have not been able to get many words right. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable.

Blog Day :

———————————————–——————————-
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 41
——————————————————————————

Today 19th July 2020 is the thirteenth birthday of this blog. I wish Atul ji, Sudhir ji, our seniors and all team members on the blog a very happy birthday of the blog today and my greetings and best wishes to all on this occasion.

Ten years ago, on this day i.e. on 19.07.2010, four songs were posted on the blog. And they were posted in a pattern which I liked when I became a member of the blog and also this was a regular pattern in those years i.e. 2012 to 2014 (I think).

In this pattern, songs were discussed in chronological order. The early morning post cover a song from the early years of Hindi cinema (for example from 1930 to 1950 or 1960). As the day wore on, songs from later years would be covered. The last song of the day would be a song from recent years say 1970 or around seventies-eighties.
(I had mentioned about this ‘pattern’ in a discussion on the ‘WhatsApp group’ of Atulites or may be on the blog 🙂 )

The four songs represented on the blog on 19.07.2010 were as given below;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Aaj hamen ban behad bhaataa AmarJyoti-1936 06 songs posted
Sataayegaa kise tu aasmaan jab ham nahin honge Sheesham-1952 07 songs posted
Main rickshaw waalaa Chhoti Behen-1959 All songs covered
Aayegaa koyi hamraaz mere pyaar kaa Phoolon Ki Sej-1964 05 songs posted

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Amar Jyoti-1936’.

I had originally planned to discuss a different song for today’s special occasion. When I checked the songs for ‘blog ten-year challenge’ today,I realised that as many as three movies were eligible for this challenge. I decided to present a song from the oldest eligible movie, preferring to enjoy the writeup of others for the ‘newer’ songs.

‘Amar Jyoti-1936’ was directed by V. Shantaram for ‘Prabhat Chitra’, Poona. It had Durga Khote, Shanta Apte, Vasanti, Karunadevi, Chandramohan, B. Nandrekar, Gajendra, K. Narayan Kale, S. Kulkarni, Vasant Desai and other.

As per HFGK Vol-1 (1931-1940) this movie had eleven songs, all written by Pt Narottam Vyas and music was composed by Master Krishnarao.

Our respected Arun ji has provided the details of his movie while discussing the song –Karte rehnaa mismaar duniya zulm o jafaa ki on the blog.

Following six songs from “Amar Jyoti-1936” have been posted on the blog so far;

Today’s song, the seventh song from this movie, is sung by Vasant Desai.

As mentioned above lyrics are by Pt Narottam Vyas and music is composed by Master Krishnarao.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Today we start the day on the blog with a song from the same movie with which the day started ten years ago. Maybe we will follow the same chronological order while covering the songs of the day. 🙂 except for the movie already ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog, of course 🙂 .

Let us enjoy this song and also wish our blog a very happy birthday….

Aji o o o

ik sheeshe ki deewaar rahi ee ee ee
hum soch khade thhe do bande
hum paanch khade thhe do bande
tatke to rahe par mil na sakey
jeewan bhar ham tum saath rahe
jeewan bhar ham tum mil na sakey
jeewan bhar hum
aji o o o

aji o o o

When ‘Bawarchi ‘ was released in 1972, I had seen it on the big screen in the theatre with family. In this film, Hrishikesh Mukherji has woven a remarkable story of a joint family and their interesting interactions. The head of the family (a widower), his three sons, two daughters in law, third son still a bachelor, and three children. The roles of the two daughters in law were played by Durga Khote and Usha Kiran. Being quite un-exposed to cinema otherwise (it was school years for me) I was quite unfamiliar with these two ladies when I saw this film for the first time.

I was later to recall these two senior actresses, when I would get to see their earlier, older films. The first such re-introduction was when I saw ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960) on TV for the first time. Then I came to recognize Durga Khote in her role as Jodha Bai, and connected her with her role in ‘Baawarchi’. The two films had a difference of 12 years, and decidedly, she is looking much younger and sweeter in her role as Badi Maa in ‘Baawarchi’, compared to her royal appearance as the empress of India and wife of Emperor Akbar. One scene (from ‘Baawarchi’) that really amazed me and mesmerized me, is the family song situation from an early morning impromptu get together of the family members – “Bhor Aayee Gaya Andhiyaara”. During the course of this song, the two supposedly middle aged daughters in law perform the rapid pace thaap steps dance to the rapid taal – “dhiga tum naa naa naa naa naa” being rendered by the family help Raghu (role played by Rajesh Khanna). It was a real wonder to see the two ladies perform that sequence. A quick check reminded me that Durga Khote was, goodness, 67 years of age, when she performed in ‘Bawarchi’.

Remembering Durga Khote on the anniversary of her passing away (22nd September).

The first and the top most lady luminary of the Hindi cinema, Durga Khote was born on 14th January, 1905, in a well­ known family of Bombay. The family hailed from Goa and spoke Konkani at home. Her mother’s name was Manjulabai. Her father, Pandurang Shamrao Laud, was a famous lawyer and her brother was also a well known barrister. The young Vita Laud (her maiden before marriage) was educated, like her siblings, at Cathedral High School and St. Xavier’s College from where she did her B.A. While still in college, she was married into the Khote family, graduated and settled down with her husband. By the age of 26, she was a widowed mother of two sons – Bakul and Harin.

Into this scenario, and a life of a very traditional family, plopped in something utterly new – the world of cinema. Durga Khote wanted to work to support her children. In doing so, she became a pioneer of sorts. It was a time when the film industry was regarded as the preserve of the base and the bawdy. Also, most of the female characters were played by men at the time.

It all came about through her sister Shalini, also married and having amongst her circle of friends, a gentleman by the name JBH Wadia. At the time JBH was working with Mohan Bhavnani as the latter’s assistant. The talkies had just made their appearance on the silver screen. Bhavnani who had just made a picture, wanted to give it the box office appeal of a “talkie” ending. The picture starred Mrs. Bhavnani and her husband was  looking out for a girl who would feature with his wife in the climax scenes of the film. Approached by JBH, Shalini refused. But knowing Durga as a person who would try anything once, she recommended her. Durga was ready to have a go at the part, accepted the role and went off to the studios the same day. Mr. Bhavnani’s heterogeneous production was soon completed, printed and made ready for release.

The film flopped. And for the beautiful young housewife and mother there followed a period of embarrassment at being connected with a filmy disaster. The film was ‘Farebi Jaal’ (also titled as ‘Trapped’ in English). “That is just how I felt when I saw it. It was a terrible film,” Durga Khote recalls in an earlier interview. She goes on to say that, “. . . my position was more than awkward. I had suddenly achieved a fair measure of notoriety. I just couldn’t walk around in Girgaum without people pointing at me.”

Looking back on it she laughed at the by-gone crisis. Through all this turmoil and unease there was one solid consolation: both the Laud and the Khote families were far too intelligent and sophisticated to be worried by the affair. On the contrary “My families stood up for me” declared Durga Khote with a proud smile of affection.

Amongst those who saw the film ‘Trapped’, was the then up and coming producer and director V Shantaram. After seeing her performance, he offered her the female lead role of Taramati in the bilingual film ‘Ayodhyache Raaja’ – ‘Ayodhya Ka Raja’ (1932). Durga Khote saw in it an opportunity to vindicate herself. Once again encouraged by the families, she accepted the role and played it beautifully. The film was not only good but a big hit, in both the Hindi and Marathi versions.

V Shantaram simultaneously cast her also in ‘Maya Machhindra’ (again 1932). This was a also a smash hit. These two top successful films established her straight off as a top star. Following came a number of films that won her acclaim from the public and from the film industry. After the two fabulous successes in 1932, what followed is no less dazzling a repertoire of well known films and famous roles.

In 1933, she appeared opposite to Prithviraj Kapoor in the New Theatres Production from Calcutta – ‘Raajrani Meera’. This year also saw her play the lead role opposite to a very young and handsome new entrant into the industry – P Jairaj, in the film ‘Patit Paavan’ (Pratima Phototone, Bombay).

1934, and she is paired opposite to Prithviraj once again in ‘Seeta’, from East India Film Company in Calcutta.

1935, another production from New Theatres – ‘After The Earthquake’, as the female lead opposite to Syed Mohammed Nawab. And once again, paired with Jairaj in ‘Jeevan Natak’ – a Debaki Bose Production in Bombay.

In 1936 came one of her many superlative roles on the screen – ‘Amar Jyoti’ from the production house of Prabhat, with co stars Chandramohan, Vasanti and B Nandrekar.

She played the lead role in ‘Pratibha’ in 1937, opposite to Master Shyam; film by Shalini Cinetone.

1938, and she appeared in two films – ‘Nand Kumar’ (Jaishree Films), working with Govindrao Tembe and ‘Saathi’ from Natraj Films, paired with Mubarak – another popular hero of that era.

1939 saw her appearing with Prithviraj once again in the Ranjeet Studios production – ‘Adhoori Kahaani’.

In 1940 it is Chandramohan and the film is ‘Geeta’ from Circo Productions. Also in 1940 came the famous and popular hit film, ‘Narsi Bhagat’ working with Vishnupant Pagnis.

1941 and it is ‘Charnon Ki Daasi’ from Atre Pictures, paired with Gajanan Jagirdar.

In 1942, she appeared in 2 films, ‘Bharat Milap’ of Prakash Pictures, with co stars Prem Adeeb, Shahu Modak and Shobhana Samarth; and in ‘Vijay’ from National Studios, opposite to Harish.

1943 turned out to be a blockbuster year for her, appearing in the lead role in six films. She was seen in ‘Qurbani’ opposite to Ishwar Lal, ‘Mahasati Anusuya’ with Shahu Modak, E Billimoria and Shobhana Samarth; ‘Mahatama Vidur’ with Vishnupant Pagnis; ‘Tasveer’ – paired with the young newcomer Motilal; and ‘Zameen’, paired with Biswas. The listing for 1943 is complete only when we talk about the mega film from Minerva Movietone – ‘Prithvi Vallabh’ in which she is paired with Sohrab Modi.

In 1944, it is ‘Maharathi Karn’ paired with Prithviraj Kapoor once again, and ‘Dil Ki Baat’ a romantic social, working opposite to Ishwar Lal.

In 1945, it is ‘Lakahrani’ from Prabhat, working opposite to Sapru; ‘Panna Dai’ working with Chandramohan and Mubarak; and ‘Veer Kunal’ with Mubarak, Kishore Sahu and Shobhana Samarth.

In 1945, we also see a major qualitative shift in her career. She stepped away from lead roles and very gracefully migrated towards support roles as a character artist. ‘Village Girl’ was probably the first such film, in which she does not play the lead role. But her films and her roles continue to be significant and powerful.  She had already stated to play non-romantic lead roles in films like ‘Charnon Ki Daasi’ (1941) and ‘Bharat Milap’ (1942). Her filmography beyond 1945 speaks volumes of her prowess as an actress, and her ability to command the scenes, and the films. Moving to character roles, her assignments continue to increase, and she continued to be a busy and an in demand artist for another almost four decades. During her career, she has appeared in more than 200 films.

A special mentions needs to be made of the 1953 film ‘Chacha Chaudhry’ – a comedienne performance which took the industry and the public by storm. The brilliant timing of her expression, gestures, movement and dialogue combined to make that role such a scintillating comedy portrayal that she all but stole the picture from the consummate actor Raja Paranjpe – who doubled as director and lead player – and Dhumal. The three of them made it a slick, hilarious romp.

Durga Khote’s portrayals have been sensitive and consummate. Notable mentions must be made of some of her performances;

as Queen Kaikeyi in the 1942 film ‘Bharat Milap, jealously coveting the throne for her own son – her personification of the grasping queen made one understand if not quite condone the old king’s doting weakness;

as Shachi Devi, mother of Chaitanuya Mahaprabu in the 1953 biopic ‘Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’ – a heart-rending performance of a mother torn between her love for her son and the gratification she feels in his single-minded devotion to God, and her heartbreak for his bewildered, forsaken girl-bride, and her gradual resignation, made for a portrayal which was a gem of histrionic art;

as Jodha Bai, the empress of India, wife of Akbar – once again called upon to make a dreadful choice of loyalties, torn between the warring father and son – at first unable to invoke the blessings for her husband leaving for the battlefield, with the certainty of the fear that her son will be killed, and then when Akbar challenges her by attempting to erase the sindoor from her forehead, very sternly and studiously she performs the pooja giving the due honor to her suhaag even in the face of an eventuality of possibly losing her only child.

These and many other such power packed performances have made Durga Khote the dame thespian of the Indian cinema. She was honored with the Padam Shri award in 1968 and the coveted Dada Saheb Phalke Award in 1983.

In 1950, Durga Khote naturally gravitated towards the stage and she joined the Marathi Sahitya Sangh, starting her long association with the theatre also. She kept busy acting in, producing and directing plays. She also founded Durga Khote Productions which produced short films – advertising, documentary, educational and industrial.

She continued to be active both in films and in theatre till the mid 1980s. After that, she moved into semi-retirement. She passed away this day, in 1991, in Bombay.

The film ‘Amar Jyoti’ has been acclaimed as a film much, much ahead of its time, both in terms of handling of the subject matter as well as in terms of technical finesse and special effects. The film represented India in the Venice film festival in 1937 and won praises and accolades as one of the best three films at the festival.

The film deals with the theme of suppression and negation of the role of the woman in the society, and one lady’s rebellion against it. As a subject, this was a daring endeavor by V Shantaram, given the prevalent sentiments in the society of that era. Nevertheless, this film was much acclaimed and became very popular at the box office too. Since the story revolves around pirates, scenes related to sailing ships and ships in conflict, it was a major accomplishment for the director, to be able to create the necessary environment within the studio, and film all the naval scenes using advanced special effects techniques, within the confines of the studio itself.

The film pertains to an undefined historical period. A queen (role played by Karuna Devi) and her cruel minister Durjay (role played by Chandramohan) are challenged by a woman turning a pirate and terrorizing the coastal provinces of the kingdom. This woman, Saudamini (role played by Durga Khote), has been much wronged by her husband. But when she pleads for justice from the royal court, Durjay decrees that a husband was the complete master of his wife, whom he could ill-treat, use as a chattel or dispose of as a slave. She is denied custody of her son by the queen, after she refuses to return to her matrimonial home. This greatly enrages Saudamini and drives her to revolt and seek revenge. She takes on the mantle of a male role and gets into a commanding position, as the captain of a pirate ship. She is assisted by her associate, Rekha (role played by Vasanti).

Durjay is captured and is kept as a prisoner with one of his legs cut off, to make him realize the eternally enslaved condition of women. Her next big catch is the princess Nandini (role played by Shanta Apte), the queen’s daughter. In her relationship with the princess, Saudamini plays an even bigger game by converting the princess to her creed of female emancipation, which considers love and marriage as a bondage. The princess suppresses her feelings for a shepherd boy, Sudhir (role played by B Nandrekar), whom she had met during her days in the pirate’s den. Unknown to even Saudamini, this shepherd boy is actually her own son, who was separated from her years ago.

In the continued sequence of events, Durjaya escapes with the help of Sudhir and returns to arrest Saudamini. Saudamini is captured, but the others, along with Nandini and Rekha, escape. It is finally revealed that Sudhir is Saudamini’s long-lost son. Nandini and Sudhir are married and Rekha carries forward Saudamini’s legacy.

Shantaram has used the symbol of the lamp and the flame very effectively. He deployed many other techniques that were considered path-breaking at that time. The film’s real success is in bringing out the inner conflicts of women, who may become male-like rebels, at the cost of suppressing their natural urges as wife or mother. In one of the most moving scenes in the film, we see Saudamini secretly fondling the tiny garments of her son, who has been separated from her.

In this song, we see this brief interlude, as Saudamini is remembering her child. The brief song is written by Pt Narottam Vyas, and the music is composed by Master Krishna Rao Phumblikar. The playback singing voice is that of Vasanti.

Remembering and honoring the enduring legacy of this fine actress – Durga Khote.

Wish that we could, but we are powerless. We can’t make them stay, ones who have to go away. Jaidev, the master of enchanting melodic creations. His film songs may number just about two hundred. But the impact he left behind him, is incomparable.

Remembering Jaidev on the 30th anniversary of his passing away (6th January, 1987).

Words like ‘tragic’, ‘unsung’, ‘unlucky’, ‘jinxed’ swim through the mind when one considers the life and career of this eminent music director. The only MD in the industry to have bagged three national awards for music direction. And all his life he lived in a one room flat near Churchgate in Bombay – a residence provided by an beneficent music lover. And when that benefactor passed away, his familial survivors reclaimed even that humble dwelling.

He scored one of his biggest successes with ‘Hum Dono’ in 1960. And yet Navketan never came back to him for another project. ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (1963) was bonanza of heavenly music. Yet there was such a serious falling out with Sahir Ludhianvi that they never worked together again. (With one exception – a lesser known ‘Laila Majnun’ from 1976). And this, despite the fact that Jaidev’s music is minimalistic, quite low on instrumentation, so much so that the poet’s words are always in the foreground.

National awards came his way in 1971 (‘Reshma Aur Shera’), 1978 (‘Gaman’) and 1984 (‘Ankahee’). But no big banner or a big budget producer came to his door. The songs of his films continued to be popular and continued to enamour the music lovers, be it ‘Do Boond Pani’ (1971) – “Jaa Ri Pawaniya Piya Ke Des Jaa”; ‘Bhaavna’ (1972) – “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan”; ‘Prem Parbat’ (1973) – “Ye Dil Aur Unki Nigaahon Ke Saaye”; ‘Aalingan’ (1974) – “Pyaas Thi Phir Bhi Takaaza Na Kiya”; ‘Parinay’ (1974) – “Jaise Sooraj Ki Garmi Se Jalte Huye Tan Ko”; ‘Andolan’ (1975) – “Piya Ko Milan Kaise Hoye Ree, Main Jaanyo Naahin”; and more. A patch of good times came in 1977 – 79 with a string of successful big name films – ‘Alaap’ (1977), ‘Gharonda’ (1977), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Dooriyan’ (1979), ‘Gaman’ (1979). But that streak of good luck did not last beyond that.

His work in the non-film arena is no less important and enchanting. His most famous non film creation is the music of Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s ‘Madhushala’, when he got Manna Dey to render this epic poem. The music director in him continued to trudge along –

manzil mile milena mile, mujhe is ka gham nahin
manzil ki justuju mein mera karvaan toh hai

Today’s song has been suggested by our dear Prakash ji, who has also sent in the lyrics. The film is ‘Amar Jyoti’ from 1984. Songwriter is Naqsh Lyallpuri and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. The song is an enchanting expression of the promises of love.

A tribute in the memory of this unsung genius, and a salaam with the words (from ‘Bhaavna’, 1972),

koi waada nahin hai mulaqaat ka
ye nazar hai magar muntazir aapki…


Song – Janam Janam Ka Hai Ye Naata  (Amar Jyoti) (1984) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Jaidev

Today’s song is from the landmark film ‘Amar Jyoti’ (1936), made by the Prabhat Film company, Poona. It was directed by V Shantaram. It was photographed by his elder brother V Avadhoot and the music was by Master Krishnarao Phulambrikar. All the songs were written by Pandit Narottam Vyas. Today’s song is sung by Vasanti and chorus. The song is also used as a background song few times in the movie since it conveys the essence of the film’s theme- fight against injustice.

So another reminder for another request from AK ji. This song is from a relatively lesser known film by the name ‘Amar Jyoti’ from 1965. I say relatively, in comparison to the better known film by the same name from 1936.
