#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Kashish -1980#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1980’ movie ‘Kashish’.

I have never heard of this movie until I joined this blog as a lyrics contributor in 2012. During my daily browsing of songs those days, I came across a song from this movie written by none other than Gulzar Saab and I immediately shared that song to Atul ji, and it was posted on 06.03.2013 on the blog. This song was sung by Mohd Rafi and I liked this song very much. However, after that song, no other songs from this movie have been posted so far.

“Kashish (alias ‘The Attraction) – 1980” was directed by Amin Choudhary for ‘Film Art International, Bombay’.

It had Naveen Nishchol, Reena Roy, Vinod Mehra, Chris Macliod, A.K. Hangal, Dr Shreeram Lagoo, Achala Sachdev, Narendra Nath, Sashikala, Patrick Macclo, Johny Whisky, Mitthu Sen, Sheli Desai, Bhim Sen, O.P. Malhotra, Lalit Kohli, Manohar Rathod, Pradeep Kochar, Jo Chiramont, Rin Chin, Michael O’ Brian, Fan Rizo, Mister Batra and others.

Rajni Sharma and Rama Vij appear in special appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.04.1980.

This movie had three songs one written by Gulzar and two written by Anjaan. (However, as per HFGK Vol-V, LP records released for this movie have five soundtracks released including one of dialogues and one of theme music of this movie).

Following is the list of song this movie has.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Lyricist Posted On
01 Kisi aasmaan pe to saahil milega Mohd Rafi Gulzar 06.03.2013
02 Hmm…do pardesi anjaane se Suman Kalyanpur, Kishore Kumar Anjaan Being covered in this post
03 Pardes mein jaa ke tu piyaa pardes piyaa Asha Bhonsle Anjaan

As mentioned above only one song from this movie has been posted earlier on the blog.

Today 11th April’2022 is the seventy-sixth birth anniversary of actor Naveen Nishchol (11 April 1946 – 19 March 2011). Had he been alive he would have turned seventy-five today. He passed away on 19th March’2011 in Mumbai.

Earlier, I had written a post about him on the blog. So I would not like to repeat what I have said earlier in my post. However I would to repeat once again that whenever Hindi Film History of the decade of seventies is discussed his name will always be there. Many of his movies have good music too and many songs from his films brings back memories for people like me who have grown in the years of seventies.

Today we will listen to a song picturized on Naveen Nishchol and Reena Roy from ‘Kashish’. This is a romantic song and I guess it is shot on foreign locations. I hope readers will enjoy this song.

Lyrics for today’s song are by Anjaan and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. This song seems to be a familiar but a lesser heard song.

Let us enjoy the song now …

Today’s song is a good Marching song from the film ‘Golconda Ka Qaidi’ – aka ‘Prisoner of Golkonda’ (1954). This was a film made in both Hindi as well as English.

Way back in 1954, when this film was released and shown in Hyderabad, I was still in school, studying for my Matriculation- that is 10th standard. In those days, for 10th standard, a novel used to be studied as a ‘Non-Detail’ subject along with the regular English Text paper. This was to ensure to inculcate a liking for literature among the students as well as introduction of world famous novels etc to them. In that year, we had the famous novel by Anthony Hope – ‘The Prisoner of Zenda’ as a ‘Non-Detail’ syllabus. Fond of reading novels etc, I was simply fascinated by this novel. Till today, I have this novel in my book collection.

When we saw the posters of of the film ‘Prisoner of Golkonda’ in our city, we were excited, thinking that this was the Hindi version of the Hollywood film “The Prisoner of Zenda” (1952) ( earlier there was also a silent film in 1922 and a talkie version in 1937 in Hollywood). This English film had already come to Hyderabad, just a year ago and we had seen it officially – since it’s novel was in our syllabus of 10th standard. After the Hindi film came to Hyderabad sometime in October 1954, the theatre owners brought the English film ‘The Prisoner of Zenda’ again for morning shows.

However, after seeing the Hindi film, we were bitterly disappointed because its story was nowhere near the captivating story of the English novel. It was absolutely a Raja, Rani and evil Vazir type story, so common in Hindi films of that period. And overall, the film, including its songs, was a big let-down on our expectations. I can’t blame the filmmakers for our disappointment, because nowhere did they ever say that it was a copy of the English film. It was we who got misled by the ” Same Name Confusion ” of the film title !

Golkonda is a fort near Hyderabad city and it was/is a tourist spot too. The film cheated us here also. There was absolutely no connection of the film story with our Golkonda fort at all. The Hyderabad public cursed the filmmakers for misleading them. After 2 years, in 1956, there came a film ‘Char Minar’ to Hyderabad. Public in Hyderabad got excited thinking that the film story was woven around the best showpiece of Hyderabad – the Char Minar. Here too came the disappointment. It had nothing to do with the Hyderabad Char Minar. In the film, Char Minar was the name of a sarai in Madina, where the hero is lost etc.

So much for the misleading film titles !

Film ‘Golconda Ka Qaidi’ (1954) had many firsts. It was the first film of lyricist Lalji Pande aka Anjaan. It was the first film for actor Rajendranath- brother of Premnath. It was the first film of actor Prem Nath as a director. The film was made by P.N. Films- owned by Premnath and Bina Rai. It was produced and directed by Premnath himself. He was the hero, his wife Bina Rai was the heroine and his younger brother Rajendernath made his debut in the film. Premnath himself sang a song in this film (one of the 5 songs from 5 films). The cast consisted of Premnath, Bina Rai, Agha, Shobhana Samarth, Heeralal, Indumati, Rajen kapoor, Cuckoo, Rajendranath with many more. Guest artistes were Om Prakash, Bipin Gupta and Sunder.

The film had 8 songs written by Anjaan, Kaif Irfani and Prakash Sathi. HFGK mentions 3 names as MDs – Datta Davjekar, Jagannath and Kundanlal (I believe they were Davjekar’s assistants). There is a footnote in HFGK that all song tunes were prepared by Datta Davjekar himself.

Datta Davjekar was a famous and respected name in Marathi film and non film music, but in Hindi his work is limited to only 5 films – ‘Aap Ki Sewa Mein’ (1947), ‘Adalat’ (1948), ‘Jeet Kiski’ (1952), ‘Golconda Ka Qaidi’ (1954) and ‘Bal Shivaji’ (1956). His name will be immortal in Hindi film music history , because he gave the first Hindi film playback song to Lata Mangeshkar in the film ‘Aap Ki Sewa Mein’ (1947).

In the Hindi film industry, there were many name alikes. Some of them also caused serious problems of ‘Same Name Confusion”. Artistes of the same name was a common phenomenon in early cinema i.e. the 1930s and the 40s. Then it diminished slowly. This matter was not only common in actors, but also in other categories also. As far as Music Directors are concerned, there were so many ‘Dattas’ as MDs. Some of them at the same time and few causing the SNC syndrome too ! There were K Datta, N Datta, Narayan Dutt, Dutta Thakar, DC Dutt, Dattaram and Datta Davjekar. Each one contributed to HFM to his ability. One MD’s name will be written in Golden Ink, in the History of HFM. The name is DATTA DAVJEKAR. This is because he created an all time Legend LATA MANGESHKAR, by giving her the opportunity to sing her first playback Hindi song in one of his films – ‘Aap Ki Sewa Mein’.

Dattatreya Shankar Davjekar (Born on 15-11-1915 – died 19 September 2007), better known as Datta Davjekar or Datta Daujeker , was a veteran music composer mainly associated with Marathi and Hindi movies. He studied up to Matriculation in Nutan Marathi Vidyalay.
He started working from 1931 composing songs in Melas and later in Saraswati Cinetone. Assisted Sureshbabu Mane for film ‘Nandkumar’ (1937). Later he assisted Govindrao Tembe in Natraj Films company. He was called to Bombay to record all Hindi and Marathi songs for film ‘Savangadi’ in Marathi and ‘Saathi’ in Hindi in 1938. He first gave music to ‘Municipality’ made by Brilliant Pictures.

Datta Davjekar’s father Baburao used to play tabla for live folk musical plays as well as in Urdu plays. He used to work in Arya Subodh Natak Mandali. He played pakhwaj also.

Davjekar learned how to play tabla and harmonium and thus developed an interest in music. He also started composing songs. Later, he was invited by the famous star Shanta Apte to perform on her shows. Davjekar performed at places as far off as Allahabad and Lahore.

Davjekar assisted C Ramachandra and Chitragupta for a while. His first break came in 1941 with a Marathi film called ‘Municipality’. It was followed by ‘Sarkari Pahune’ in 1942. One of the film’s songs “Naache Sangeet Natwar” was a big hit. Davjekar went on to work with big names in Marathi cinema, like Raja Paranjape, Gajanan Jagirdar, Master Vinayak, Dinkar Patil, Datta Dharmadhikari, Rajdutt and Raja Thakur. In 1945, he joined HMV and composed several popular Marathi Bhavgeet songs, writing them himself, like “Tuj Swapni Pahile” and “Kuni Bai Gungunle” etc. He was known as ‘DD’.

His famous films include ‘Rangalyaa Raatri Ashyaa’, ‘Paathlaag’, ‘Pahu Re Kitni Vaat’, ‘Thoraataanchi Kamlaa’, ‘Padchaaya’, ‘Chimanrao Gundyabhau’, ‘Pedgaonche Shahane’, ‘Juna Te Sona’, ‘Sant Vahate Krishna Mai’, ‘Sukhaachi Sawali’, ‘Viasakh Vanwaa’ and ‘Yashoda’. His last film release was ‘Pahaate Punyechi’ in 1992. His non-film song “Sainik Ho Tumchyaa Saathi” (translation: For you, oh Soldiers) was a big hit and its sales proceeds went to the Armed Forces.

In a career spanning fifty two years, Davjekar composed music in several languages for sixty films, twelve plays and several documentaries. He learnt German music for composing music for the play ‘Thank you, Mr Glad’. He is credited for giving a break to many singers who became extremely popular over a period of time, including the Mangeshkar siblings, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosale and Usha Mangeshkar as well as others such as Anuradha Paudwal.

The film ‘Maazhe Baal’, released in 1943, was Davjekar’s first Marathi film with Lata Mangeshkar. He went on to introduce her to Hindi films with his song “Paa Laagoo Kar Jori Re” for the film ‘Aap Ki Sewa Mein’ (1947).

Davjekar did four more Hindi films, Vasant Joglekar’s ‘Adalat’ (1948), ‘Jeet Kiski’ (1952), Premnath’s English-Hindi bilingual, ‘Prisoner of Golconda’, in which Sudha Malhotra sang, and ‘Bal Shivaji’ (1956). He used to accompany Lata Mangeshkar on her foreign trips for music programs as the chief arranger. He won five awards for his music to Marathi films. In 1995 he was given ‘Lata Mangeshkar’ award by Maharashtra Government.

On 19 September 2007 Davjekar died of a heart attack at his residence in Andheri, Mumbai.

An Obituary in One India dated 20th September 2007 says…

Family sources said Davjekar died of a heart attack at his Andheri residence late last night.

The funeral took place at the Oshiwara crematorium this morning and was attended by family, friends and admirers.

Condoling the death of Mr Davjekar, Lata Mangeshkar recollected that the late music composer had given her the first opportunity in playback singing in his movie ‘Aap Ki Seva Mein’. ”Just like his music, he was a sweet human being,” Mangeshkar said.

His non-film song ”Sainik Ho Tumchyaa Saathi” was a superhit and its sales proceeds went to the Armed Forces. Datta Davjekar also composed music for twelve plays including ‘Thank You Mr Glad’ for which he learnt German music. In a career spanning more than six decades, he scored music for nearly 60 films.

Today’s song is a marching song by Rafi with Chorus. Enjoy….

Blog Day :

There are some events in the blog that need human intervention. These are events viz century of posts, artists etc. Then there are events that happen without any conscious efforts on our part.

One such event took place just now today (25 January 2022). The blog just clocked 15 million visitors at around 16:15 IST on 25 January 2022. I was aware of this event approaching. I was not the only one. Some other keeneyed regulars had also noticed it. One of them (Mahesh Mamadapur) had guessed that the 15th million visitor would get clocked to coincide with 26 january, the republic day of India. But the visitors were in a hurry. They clocked this figure one day in advance! 🙂

Here is a summary of all the million visitors that have taken place in the blog so far :-

Visitor number Date achieved Blog day number Days taken for the million hits Remarks

15 millions 25 January 2022 4939 422 @ 2370 visitors per day

Overall rate of visitors till now is 3037 visitors per day from the beginning of the blog 14 years ago. A fairly decent rate of visitors for a blog dealing with a non populist topic, namely old HFM.

This calls for a celebration. We in this blog know only one way to celebrate, viz by discussing a song. 🙂

So, here is a song from “Hangaama”(1971). This movie was produced by Babulal Chainrai and Mohan Chainrai and directed by S M Abbas for Chainson Films, Bombay. The movie , a comedy movie, had Vinod Khanna, Zeenat Aman, Mehmood, Helen, Kishore Kumar, Fariyaal, Johnny walker, Aruna Irani, Yunus Parvez, Mukri, Dhumal, Jr.Mehmood, Kumud Tripathi, Janki Dass, Tuntun, Joginder, Ram Avtaar, Rajni Gupta, Master Bhagwan, Bhola, Jerry, Jagdish Kanwal, Gopal, Ranvir Raj, etc. in it.

“Hangaama”(1971) had five songs in it. One song has been covered so far. Here is the second song from the movie. This song is sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Only the audio of the song is available. Those who have watched the movie state that the song was picturised on Vinod Khanna and Zeenat Aman. Vinod Khanna, then well known as a villain, was signed up reluctantly because the movie, full of comedians (Kishore Kumar, Mehmood, Johny Walker etc) needed someone who would pass for a hero and so would sing the customary romantic songs in the movie while the comedians would go about doing their clowning job. So Vinod Khanna inadvertently became a hero with this movie, that too opposite Zeenat Aman.

Blog Day :

On this blog we often celebrate anniversaries of various artists of Hindi Films and Hindi Film Music. Time to time we also celebrate birthdays of our team members who are also known as ‘Atulites’. So today we are celebrating birthday of two Atulites and one well-wisher of this blog (read as ‘family members of the team members 😊).

This post is to wish Atulites Pradeep Raghunathan ji and Peevesie’s Mom ji a very happy birthday today. On behalf of all team members, I wish them a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. Also today is the birthday of my wife. So, we wish her too a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day 😊 (she also has her ‘hand’ behind me – and she also has her share in my being a successful ‘Atulite’ for the last nine years four months… 😊)

As is customary for us, we will now listen to a song which suits today’s occasion perfectly. This is a ‘birthday celebration song’. It is from the ‘1989’ movie ‘Saaya’. I was not aware either of the song or this movie. I came across this song only a couple of days back (when I was looking for a birthday song).

‘Saaya-1989’ was directed by R. Keshu (I guess he is Keshu Ramsay) for ‘Century Films’. It was produced by Naval Kumar and presented by R.C. Kumar.

It had Shatrughan Sinha, Poonam Dhillon, Danny Denzongpa, with Pinchoo Kapoor, Viju Khote, Beena, Baby Tabassum, supported by Iftekhar, Anjali Sen, Shammi, Sudhir Dalvi, Darshan, Prakash and Kaajal Kiran.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Kumar Ramsay. Dialogues for this movie were written by Jagdish Kanwal. Shafi Ur Rahman was associate dialogue writer for this movie.

Editing of this movie was done by Bal Korde.

Lyrics for the songs in this movie were written by Anjaan and music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Asha Bhonsle, Nazia Hassan, Zoheb, Uttara Kelkar, and Munna were those whose voices was used for the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Poonam Dhillon lip-syncs the song on screen. Shatrughan Sinha and Baby Tabassum (whose birthday is being celebrated) are also seen alongwith many others.

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song and wish the birthday boys and birthday girls a very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Hullo Atuldom

So, we have post number 16700 up. Congratulations to Atulji on yet another Hundred. There was a time, not so long back, when we used to have a century every month. Atulji, please confirm, wasn’t there a fastest century too- a century in 16 days? In the run up to my previous post I had noticed that “this date last year” i.e. 15th December 2020, the blog had celebrated its 16100th post with this post which also happened to be the music director duo Shankar-Jaikishan’s 1000th on the blog. I was wondering how Atulji will make post number 16700 special and it is indeed special considering the time-period of that song (1947). Hearty congratulations Atulji.

Let us kick-start the new century with a song from the 1981 release “Shradhanjali”. This was written and directed by Anil Sharma (who was only 21 then), produced by K C Sharma and had Hemant Bhonsle’s music and songs written by Anjaan. Bhupinder Singh, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, and Shobha Gurtu were the playback singers used.

The movie had a cast headed by Rakhee (in one of her sacrificing Naari roles) and Deepak Parasher was her romantic hero. Arun Govil played her Devar (brother-in-law) who is in awe of her and simply worships her. Madhu Kapoor was Arun Govil’s romantic interest, Sulochana was mother to Deepak Parasher and Arun Govil and Rakhee’s mother-in-law. Suresh Oberoi played the spoke-in-the-wheel that topples Rakhee’s apple cart. Then the movie had K.N. Singh, Jankidas, Yunus Parvez, Manik Dutt, Keshto Mukherjee, Sonia Sahni etc bringing up the supporting cast; all of whose characters together make the movie a ‘sob-story-movie’ which became Rakhee’s forte’ for a few years in the 80s. The Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu Bhopali also makes an appearance in the movie for the song that was sung by Shobha Gurtu.

I have very little knowledge about the Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu, though I have seen the song from ‘Shradhanjali’ a few times in my life. Her facial expressions were very pretty. This is what our dear Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has written about Shakeela Banu Bhopali in his latest post (and I quote, hope he doesn’t mind it)

The other famous qawwal in films was Shakeela Banu Bhopali. She was multitalented. She acted in 32 films, but sang only 4 songs in 3 films. She too gave music to just 1 film- ‘Maze Le Lo’- 1975. She died on 16-12-2002.

This was part of a post that highlighted Jaani Babu Qawwal in Arunkumarji’s current series on ‘songs from artiste name films’

As per what I read somewhere on the internet, she had lost her voice due to the Bhopal gas tragedy in 1984. She passed away of a cardiac arrest on 16th December, 2002.

On to the song that is part of the wedding rituals of Madhu Kapoor and Arun Govil. We can see Suresh Oberoi welcoming the groom and the baaraat of which Arun Govil’s bhabhima (Rakhee) and her chief advisor (K.N. Singh) who is helping her in resurrecting her husband’s business after Suresh Oberoi ruins it and is the cause of Deepak Parasher’s death.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is heavily inspired by this song. This 1973 song which was sung by Kishore Kumar had Dharmendra trying to pacify his upset love Rekha. He resorted to all kinds of buffoonery to get a smile on her face and also get her to admit her love for him

In today’s song Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar is the voice for Dharmendra’s son Sunny Deol. Sunny is running behind a ‘roothhi’ Meenakshi Seshadri and trying to get her to re-admit her love. So, the situation is like this. Just before this song, Sunny -who is a boxer for his college- has been reprimanded by his coach (Viju Khote) for day-dreaming about Meenakshi. Consequently, he refuses to acknowledge when she comes to meet him at his coaching camp. Later, when Sunny goes to meet her at a cafe, she pays him back in the same coin and also gathers public support citing that he is eve-teasing her. Now, it is the duty of our naayak to ‘manao’ a ‘roothhi’ naayikaa.

Hence this song which is written by Anjaan and composed by Bappi Lahiri. As I have said in the previous paragraph the male voice is Amit Kumar’s and S. Janaki sings for Meenakshi Seshadri. This marks the debut of “Ghayal” (as written in the titles of the movie). This 1990 movie starred Raj Babbar and Moushumi Chatterjee as Sunny’s bhaiyya and bhabhi. Amrish Puri played Balwant Rai (the villain) with Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Om Puri, Ashalata, Shafi Inamdar, Annu Kapoor etc in supporting roles. There were a few actors like Shabbir Khan, Sudesh Berry and Mitwa who played Sunny’s support in his mission to expose the wrong-doings of the big-time businessman Balwant Rai. Disco Shanti had a dance number too.

I am writing this post to wish the ‘dhai kilo ke haath’ wala, hand-pump ookhadnewala (uprooting a hand-pump), strong dialogue delivery wala, son of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur- Ajay Singh Deol a.k.a Sunny Deol- on his birthday today. . It is apparent from his recent movies that he is a huge fan of his father. He has acted in three editions of a movie whose title was inspired by a famous song of his father from the ’70s- the Yamla Pagla Deewana series. He also chose another of his father’s song from the ’70s to use as a title for a movie that he directed to launch his son Karan in Bollywood- Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. Additionally he has acted with his father in ‘Sultanat’, ‘Apne’ and a few more.
Happy birthday Sunny Deol.

‘Anjaan’ (1941) was produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies and was directed by Amiya Chakraborty who made his debut as a director with this film. The star cast included Devika Rani and Ashok Kumar in the lead roles supported by Girish, P F Pithawala, V H Desai, Gulab, David, Fatty Prasad, Yusuf Suleiman, Master Suresh, Baby Madhuri, Rewashankar, Arun Kumar etc. For Devika Rani, it was her ‘comeback’ film after her last film ‘Durga’ (1939) and after the death of her husband, Himanshu Rai in 1940.

Another ‘first’ for the film ‘Anjaan’ (1941) was that R D Mathur, the US trained photographer who was assistant to Josef Wirsching, the German cinematographer of Bombay Talkies, made his debut as a Cinematographer for the film. He got this opportunity as Josef Wirsching, being a German, was jailed in India during the World War-II. R D Mathur earned his name as an ace cinematographer for his works in films such as ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960) and Razia Sultana’ (1983). He also completed the cinematography work for ‘Paakeezah’ (1971) after the sudden death of the film’s cinematographer, Josef Wirsching.

Since the inception of the film productions by Bombay Talkies in 1935, Saraswati Devi and Ramchandra Pal used to be the music directors of all the films of Bombay Talkies released till 1940. ‘Anjaan’ (1941) was the first film of Bombay Talkies for which instead of Saraswati Devi or Ramchandra Pal, the music direction of the film was entrusted to Pannalal Ghosh, who had shifted from Kolkata to Mumbai in 1940 with his wife and playback singer, Parul Ghosh.

Pandit Pannalal Ghosh (24/07/1911 – 20/04/1960), the renowned flautist, who was the pioneer in introducing the flute as the musical instrument in the Hindustani classical musical concerts, had to start his initial musical career in the film industry in Kolkata at the age of 17 when he lost his father. He started with playing flute during the exhibitions of the silent films. When the sound films came into being, he became the music assistant, first to Kazi Nazrul Islam and thereafter to R C Boral when he joined the New Theatres as a musician. He had assisted R C Boral when for the first time, playback singing Indian films was introduced for ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’/Bhagyachakra’ (1935).

Pannalal Ghosh’s association with the film industry was mainly to earn money to take care of his family. His interest was to become a Hindustani classical musician with flute as his musical instrument. He formally became the ‘gadabandh’ disciple of Ustad Khushi Mohammed Khan and after his death, the disciple of Pandit Girija Prasad Chakraborty. Besides working for New Theatres, Pannalal Ghosh regularly participated in the programmes of the All India Radio, Kolkata as a flautist.

In early 1940, Pannalal Ghosh shifted his base to Mumbai along with his family as he felt that there was no recognition to his work in Kolkata. In Mumbai, he followed the same strategy – working in the films for sustenance and pursuing his interest in Hindustani classical music. He immediately got his first assignment as a music director for Kikubhai Desai’s film ‘Sneh Bandhan’ (1940). This was followed by ‘Anjaan’ (1941), ‘Basant’ (1942), ‘Sawwal’ (1943), ‘Duhaai’ (1943), ‘Bhalaai’ (1943), ‘Police’ (1944), ‘Beesvi Sadi’ (1945) ‘Aadhar’ (1945) etc.

However, Pannalal Ghosh could not get satisfaction with his work because of the way the Hindi film industry worked. During this time, Ustad Allauddin Khan of Maihar Gharana, the exponent of multiple musical instruments like sarod, sitar, flute, Veena etc. was staying in Mumbai. Pannalal Ghosh became his disciple at a time when he was already started giving public concerts. ‘Aandolan’ (1951) was his last film as a music director.

From 1955-60, Pannalal Ghosh took up the job as a Composer and Director of All India Radio, Delhi Vadhya Vrinda (Orchestra) and stayed in Delhi with his family. His connection with Hindi films was limited to playing flute as and when music directors called him to Mumbai. The best exmaples of his flute recitals can be found in the song main piya teri tu maane ya na maane from ‘Basant Bahaar’ (1956) and in the song mohe panghat pe nandlal chhed gayo re from ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960).

I have always thought that the flute was a tiny musical instrument – may be not more than 12-18 inches long. I realised that it was not so when I when I saw the photographs of Pandit Pannalal Ghosh and Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia playing with their long flutes. The credit for elongating the flute’s normal length to as high as 32 inches goes to Pandit Pannalal Ghosh with an extra 7th hole so that the tiny folk instrument becomes capable of playing Hindustani classical music in various raags. Over a period of time, flute has become one of the concerts’ music instruments along with other music instruments. Probably, Pandit Pannalal Ghosh was the first Hindustani classical musician to play the solo flute in public concerts.

Pandit Pannalal Ghosh died of a massive heart attack on April 20, 1960 when he was 48. He has left a large number of his disciples to keep his legacy alive.

The story of ‘Anjaan’ (1941) as under:

Indira (Devika Rani) is employed by Ranima (Gulab), the widow of the landlord as governess to look after her two children. Ramnath (Girish) is the Estate Manager to Ranima who loves Indira and to get her on his side, he is ready to turn to the villainous acts. Indira falls in love with Dr. Ajit (Ashok Kumar) who often visits Ranima for her medical check-up. Now, this turns into a love triangle. The more love between Dr Ajit and Indira blossom, the more villainous Ramnath turns. Ramnath falsely accuses Indira of secretly visiting to Ajit’s house in the night about which he complains to Ranima. Indira gets her services as governess terminated.

After hearing from Ajit about the wrong doings by Ramnath, it is too much for Ranima for her already weak heart leading to the further deterioration of her fragile health. Ajit administers her injection to revive Ranima but in vain. She is dead. Ramanth finds a good excuse to implicate Ajit on the charge of the murder of Ranima.

The news of the alleged murder by Ajit unnerves Indira as Ramnath tells her that he is going the lodge the murder charges against Ajit. She agreed to marry Ramnath provided he lets Ajit free from the murder charges. Hereafter, she avoids meeting Ajit which creates misunderstanding in his mind about Indira. He decides to leave the place for the city. Ajit decision to migrate to the city is too much for Indira. She decides to meet Ajit at the railway station to tell him the truth. After listening her, Ajit tells her to wait for his return from the city.

Ramnath comes to know about the double crossing by Indira. He lodges the charge of murder on Ajit who is arrested in the city. To prove the motive for the murder of Ranima, Ramnath removes some costly jewelries and declares as missing, pointing finger on Ajit. In the trial in the session court, Ajit argues himself. The judge is impressed by his arguments. But the evidences are all against Ajit. However, it is the two children of Ranima whose evidences clinche the judgement in favour of Ajit. Ramnath is handed over to the police and Ajit gets Indira.(With inputs from the review of the film which appeared in the September 1941 issue of ‘Filmindia’ magazine).

The film had 10 songs of which 8 songs have been covered on the Blog as under:

I am presenting the last and the final song ‘saanwariya re saanwaria’ which has two versions – a duet sung by Arun Kumar Mukherjee and Susheela and a solo sung by Arun Kumar Mukherjee towards the end of the film. The song is written by P L Santoshi which is set to music by Pandit Pannalal Ghosh. The audio clip of the song is longer by one stanza. Hence the lyrics of the song is based on the audio clip.

My guess is that Arun Kumar Mukherjee sings in both the versions of the song on himself. From the side profile of his face during the singing, I notice some resemblance of Ashok Kumar on his face who was his maternal cousin. In the star cast, the name of Arun Kumar is mentioned.

With this two-version song, all the song of ‘Anjaan’ (1941) have ben covered on the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ghar Ka Chiraag” is a title that has been used twice in Bollywood- in 1967 and 1989. The 1967 film had a cast of Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Biswajeet etc and had music by Madan Mohan for songs written by Kaifi Azmi. This was directed and produced by Jagdev Bhambri.
The 1989 film had Rajesh Khanna leading a cast of Neelam, Chunky Pandey, Om Shivpuri, Shafi Inamdaar, Navin Nischol and Dipika Chikhalia in a special appearance. It had music by Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. This one was directed by Sikander Bharti and produced by Rajeev Kumar Choudhry.

The content in both the films seem to be different going by the synopsis available on the internet. But I know for a fact that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (1989) was majorly inspired by the 1969 Balraj Sahni- Sadhana- Sanjay Khan starrer “Ek Phool Do Mail”. This statement of mine is sufficient to give the followers an idea about the movie, correct? Of course, there were minor differences in the story. In “Ek Phool Do Mali” (EPDM) Sadhana becomes an unwed mother because she is molested, whereas “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (GKC) had Neelam getting pregnant with Chunky Pandey’s child. In EPDM Sanjay was a mountaineer and GKC had Chunky as a racing enthusiast. Rest of the story was same in both the movies. And both movies had melodious songs.

GKC had eight songs with two songs having happy and sad versions. “Tutak tutak tutak tutiya” was very popular when the movie had released and I think it was inspired by some Punjabi folk song; this one had two versions. Another song ‘yeh kismat hai kya, jaanta hai wahi’ also had two versions. The happy version is when Kumar (Rajesh Khanna) is celebrating his happiness with wife (Deepika) and friends. We see that this song is echoing the thoughts that Dilip Kumar and Shammi Kapoor had put forth in this song.

In the second version we have Rajesh Khanna singing out his life experiences, and says ‘ek thokar lagi, toota sara nasha’.

Bappi Lahiri used Mohammad Aziz, Amit Kumar and Sapna Mukherjee (youtube is crediting Alka Yagnik for this song, need confirmation) for this song and Alisha Chinai and Amit Kumar for ‘Tutak tutak tutiya’. Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik and Sarika Kapoor (another new name, for me at least) were the other playback singers.
Mohammad Aziz who sang the sad version of today’s song would have celebrated his 67th birthday on July 2nd. He was born in Kolkatta. He sang, primarily, in Hindi, Bengali and Odia films plus some Sufi devotional songs and also various genres in 10 other languages. He was also credited as Munna in some movies. ‘Mard’ by Anu Malik was his breakthrough though the 1984 movie ‘Amber’ with music by Sapan-Jagmohan was his debut in Bollywood. He has sung alongside all the prominent singers of the ’80s and ’90s with music composed by RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Ravindra Jain, Raamlaxman etc; even OP Nayyar and Naushad.

Amit Kumar who has sung the duet with Sapna Mukherjee (or it could be Alka Yagnik, as per the tagging on youtube) celebrates his birthday on July 3rd turns 69!!!!! Is it so!!!!! Unbelieveable!!!! Cannot think of some people as aging, right no 🙂

We have enough fans of Amit Kumar on this blog and everyone knows his history, lineage etc. His last film appearance was in the 1989 release ‘Mamta Ki Chhaon’ which was a movie left incomplete by Kishore Kumar-his father. He had acted in many movies made by his father beginning with “Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein” in 1964. He won the Filmfare award for best singer in 1982 for the 1981 release “Love Story”.

Here is remembering Munna a.k.a Mohammad Aziz on his birth anniversary and Wishing Amit Kumar many more Happy Returns. May he continue to entertain us. He is launching a special RD Burman tribute on his birth-date on his YouTube channel… looking forward to it

Song-Ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1989) Singers-Alka Yagnik/ Sapna Mukherjee, Amit Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

Happy version

aadmi kismat se kya
lad paayega bolo yahaan
darr ke kismat se ruka hai
iss zameen pe aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
hooo ooooo
ooooo
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hai wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

jitne oonche ho insaan ke hausle
utne oonche mahal uske kadmon taley
ho jitne oonche ho insaan ke housle
utne unche mahal uske kadmon taley

jinki mehenat ke dam se mahal hai khade
unko rehne ko milte hai kyon jhonpde
unki mehenat main ye akal shaamil na thhi
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
uski mehenat mein hogi kahi kuchh kami
warna kya hai jo kar na sake aadmi

aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banaayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

aaj ka aadmi chaand ko chhoo saka
phir bhi dharti ko khushaal na kar saka
yahaan mehenat se sholon pe bhi gul khile
buri kismat se barsaat mein ghar jale
aaa aaaa aaa aa
aa aa aa aa
ye takraar sadiyon se yoonhi chale
magar ho sake na kabhi faisle
ye sach hai ki mehnat se sab kuchh miley
magar jab ye kismat yahaan saath de
na mehenat hai chhoti na kismat badi
hai donon ke dam pe ye duniya khadi
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain khadi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

——————————————–
Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz )
——————————————–

har dua ek baddua
kyun ban gayi,
pal mein yahaan
bewafa kismat bhi,
uthth gaya sar se aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

ye kismat hai karti ajab faisle
yahaan milke sab kuchh
bhi kuchh na miley
bhatakti hai yoon dar-badar zindagi
ke marke bhi insaan mar na sakey
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri

ek thhokar lagi toota saara nasha
ab hai jaanaa kahaan kuchh nahin hai pata
laake kismat ne chhoda hai kis mod par
jo musaafir thha khud ban gaya raasta
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi
