Hullo Atuldom

Some songs keep playing in our mind as if on loop. This I had said in one of my previous posts. Today’s song is one such.
I saw it consciously a number of times in the last few years. Consciously means I may have seen it in the ’70s or ’80s when these movies were aired on the doordarshan but I was not old enough to appreciate them or the meaning of their lyrics. But now on repeat viewing of the movie I am getting wiser. I had filed away (mentally) that this needs to be on the blog. So here it is.

“Sadhu Aur Shaitaan” a 1968 release had 4 songs all written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmi-Pyare were the music directors. Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Manna Dey and Mohd. Rafi were the playback singers.

Only one song has been posted on the blog. That one had Mehmood replaying his “hum kale hain toh kya hua” character. We had Mehmood mouthing the initial part of “Chunia, ari kidhar hai ri tu? Mere dil ki rani. Mere nawaason ki naani. aa gaya hoon main. arre dekh le main aa gaya permission leko”.

Today’s song has him giving gyaan about the importance of knowing one’s mother tongue in addition to learning “A B C D”. We should remember that this was a movie which came at a time when we had enough students opting for schools which were not essentially English medium. We should also remember that all those who trained in non-English medium schools were no less intelligent and we have many pioneers in various fields from those students too. I know I will be stirring a hornet’s nest if I talk about which is a better language for educating the masses of the country.

My personal feeling is that education should be in a language where in the parents also understand what the child is learning so that they are able to clarify doubts that the child has as he is studying. People may feel that my thoughts are very old fashioned but…..

Today happens to be the birth anniversary of Mehmood who would have been 88. He knew how to bring a smile on the viewer’s face, how to tickle their funny bone. He was the son of actor/dancer Mumtaz Ali and brother of dancer Minu Mumtaz (about whom our Sadanandji has written in his this post). His brother Anwar Ali was also an actor who paired with Mehmood in “Bombay To Goa” as Rajesh to Mehmood’s Khanna.

Mehmood took up odd jobs at a rather young age to help look after his large family which had 7 siblings. He decided to try acting to support his family once he married and had his first son and had his first break in “C.I.D” with a small role of the killer. He had other small unnoticed roles in “Do Bigha Zameen” “Pyaasa” etc. His innings in Bollywood was peppered with comic roles that were an essential part of the story and we often saw him drill sense into older characters towards the end of the movie.

I saw a part of “Meri bhabhi” (1969) this morning where he was doing just that as Shambu. But he was a class apart when he turned to movie making and gave us classics like “Bhoot Bungla”, “Padosan”, “Bombay To Goa” and the most poignant, message carrying of them all “Kunwara Baap”. His last movie released in 1996 “Dushman Duniya Ka” which he directed and Jeetendra headed the cast. It is interesting to note that Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan had special appearances in it.

Remembering the actor, producer, director Mehmood with this song sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Husn ka chor-53.

The film was made by Basant Pictures owned by Homi Wadia. He was the Producer, but surprisingly the film was directed by his elder brother J.B.H.Wadia (13-1-1901 to 4-1-1986 ). JBH had also written its story, screenplay and dialogues too. Another surprise was that this film was a Costume/action film. The brothers had separated in 1942 on the issue of Wadia Movietone continuing making stunt films or to start making social films. JBH wanted to make social films and Homi Wadia (22-5-1911 to 10-12-2004) advocated for continuance of stunt films. He separated from JBH and started his own Basant Pictures. The third surprise was that for the first (and the last) time JBH wrote part of the lyrics of one song in this film. Today’s song is that song.

The cast of the film was Usha Kiran, Mahipal, Brij Mohan (B.M.Vyas), Azeem Dalpat, Sardar Mansoor, Agha Shapoor, Bismilla etc.etc. The wadias, known for fantasy and stunt films, always made new stories by rehashing old stories from Arabian Nights. This was also one such movie. I had seen this film.

The lead pair was Mahipal and Usha Kiron. one speciality of Wadias was that in their films, the credits list used to be very lengthy ,as they were keen on writing almost every small actor’s names also.

Qamar(Mahipal) was a compulsive thief.Once he steals Princess Husn’s(Usha Kiran) jewels,but he is so dazed by her beauty and innocence that he returns her jewels.When several foreign Princes come to propose to her,he also goes there by disguising as a prince.Husn selects him,but the secret is revealed by Nadira(Lalita kumari),a dancer who loves Qamar.The king could not digest the selection by Husn. Qamar is put in Jail, from where he is rescued by Nadira and friends.One Faqir tells Qamar to become a real prince to win Husn.
Qamar sets out on a magic flying horse to meet Moon Fairy to get the Magic wish bowl.The Moon fairy is rescued by him from the custody of evil genie by killing the genie.

Meanwhile Husn’s father faces mutiny and death if Husn is not married to the Vazir. Qamar arrives on a flying carpet and takes away Husn to the Moon.
The End.

In the last scene this line is Flashed ” Heaven dwells in pure Hearts “.

It was great fun to watch such types of movies.The audience also participated in the ongoings on the screen by appropriately scolding, encouraging or clapping loudly.There was no need to think logically. It was pure entertainment, and a timepass.

Actor Brij Mohan aka B.M.Vyas was one artiste who started as a singer, became a drama actor and then ended up as a villain, character actor. B.M.Vyas was born as Brijmohan Vyas on Vijayadashami (22 October) day of 1920 in Churu, Rajasthan. He is the younger brother of the well-known poet and lyricist, Bharat Vyas. He was married at the age of 17 when his wife, Jamna was just 11. They had 71 years of marital bliss before Jamna passed away in 2008. They had six daughters and a son. After acting in over 200 films in various languages, Vyas quit acting in the early 1990s. Then he moved to his residence in Kalyan. Having seen various shades of life, Vyas lived a contented life with his children and grandchildren.

On 15 January, 1944, actor Prithviraj Kapoor realised his dream when Prithvi Theatre, his own drama company came into being. Mahakavi Kalidas’ classic Shakuntala was chosen to be their first performance. The play’s cast included Uzra Mumtaz (younger sister of Zohra Segal) to play Shakuntala, Prithviraj Kapoor to play Dhushyant, K N Singh was cast as Rishi Kanva, Shakuntala’s foster father, Sati Devi (Bijoya Ray’s sister, Ruma Guha Thakurta’s mother) as Gautami, caretaker of Kanva Ashram who raises Shakuntala, and Hemavati (Daya Kishan Sapru’s wife) to play Shakuntala’s friend Priyamvada, among others. A young, 24 years old, B M Vyas was recruited as a singer by the drama company to sing songs in their play at a monthly salary of 75 Rupees.

Once when rehearsals for their maiden show were in progress and Vyas was done with his singing rehearsals, he was watching rehearsals of the cast. One of his songs for the play was “Bitiya Rani Kahan Kahan Tapasvi Log, Milna Julna Rehgaya Nadi Naav Sanjog”. The cast was rehearsing for a scene which needed Rishi Kanva to recite a mantra in Sanskrit, but actor K N Singh was having trouble reciting it. Prithviraj was trying to help him but was also faltering in saying it perfectly. Vyas , an expert in Hindi and Sanskrit, having immense knowledge of Ved Mantra was witnessing the proceedings for two days. It was possibly the blessing of Goddess Saraswati that inspired him to say the mantra aloud. On hearing him intone the mantra with such Brahminical precision, Prithviraj was very impressed and asked him to help K N Singh in saying the mantra correctly. But soon K N Singh informed Prithviraj ji that he will not be able to speak Devbhasha (Sanskrit) and that he should look for another artiste for the role. Prithviraj asked Prithvi Theatre’s manager Ramesh Saigal to approach Vyas for the role. Vyas , who had already acted in a Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana earlier, readily agreed and stepped into the role and thus started his journey as an actor.

While the rehearsals were still on, Vyas suffered a personal tragedy and had to go back home in Bikaner, Rajasthan. There he fell sick with typhoid. Here rehearsals were in full swing as the play was to premiere on 9 March, 1945 at the Royal Opera House. The final date was about a month away so Prithviraj asked him to come back as soon as possible. Vyas returned with his wife though he was still unwell. On the day he resumed his rehearsals he couldn’t do much due to frequent blackouts. The medication he was on, did not seem to help him much. He remembers the doctor from Kalbadevi who treated him for free; with his medication, Vyas ji’s health improved considerably in just three days.

The final round of rehearsals was done and finally the day of Prithvi Theatre’s first play to be staged, arrived. For the first performance of Shakuntala, many known names of the film industry were present at Royal Opera House. In the scene where Rishi Kanva makes an entry on stage he was required to raise his hands for blessing but Vyas was still weak and his hands started shaking. He tried a lot to control them but to no avail. He then remembered that he had seen many old people whose hands and head would involuntarily shake, so he started to shake his head too. The end result was so effective that during the play’s interval Prithviraj came and hugged him. He asked him how he developed that body language, Vyas told him about his genuine problem. Prithiviraj told him that he did a wonderful job and should continue with the same every time the play was staged.

Vyas had a long association with Prithvi Theatre, from 1944 to 1955. During this period he toured with the group to various cities and got an opportunity to showcase his singing and acting skills in various plays like – Deewar, Pathan, Aahuthi, Gaddar, Kalaakar, etc. The dedication with which this iconic actor prepared for his roles can be observed from the fact that he could mouth dialogs from plays he participated in over six decades ago.

Vyas was interested in music since childhood. He is a self-taught singer. They had a Harmonium at home which Vyas learnt to play on his own. He liked to be around musically inclined people. He would listen carefully and learn. He fondly remembers the blind musician from his home town who would give him a free hand to play the various musical instruments he had. He never really had a Guru he could learn from but he says he learnt the art of teaching singing. He gave music tuitions when he was in Bikaner before moving to Mumbai.

In the early 1940s Bharat Vyas called his younger brother to Mumbai. Soon Vyas ji got the opportunity to act and sing as many as twenty songs for the Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana written by Bharat. Music Director Naushad Sahab’s assistant Ghulam Muhammad who hailed from Rajasthan was very impressed when he heard Vyas’s voice in the play. He took him to meet Naushad Sahab who was working on the soundtrack of the film Pehle Aap (1944). Vyas got an opportunity to sing a group song “Hindustan Ke Hum Hain, Hindustan Hamara; Hindu Muslim Dono Ki Aakhon Ka Tara” with established singers G. M. Durrani and Shyam Kumar along with a new singer Mohammed Rafi. Since this song was supposed to be sung by soldiers on screen, Vyas and Rafi Sahab had to wear heavy boots and do a rhythmic march while singing to give an effect of an army troop. Such effects could not be added to a song with the technology available then; it all had to be done in real time. However the first ever song Vyas sang for a film was “Alakh Niranjan, Jai Jai Jai Manaranjan” from Bhartrihari (1944) which was picturized on Arun Ahuja (Govinda’s father).

After Vyas joined Prithvi Theatre as a singer, he had to do regular riyaz at home. A music teacher who often heard him sing once asked if he would be willing to give music tuitions. Since his monthly salary was 75 Rupees then, Vyas agreed as this would give him additional income. The teacher took him to meet Jaichand Kapoor and soon Vyas started giving music tuitions to his elder son, Brijmohan. However his younger brother seemed more inclined and started learning music from Vyas. This youngster was none other than our legendary playback singer, Mahendra Kapoor who always acknowledged that B M Vyas was his first Guru.

Vyas gave playback in four films – Bhartrihari (1944, MD: Khemchand Prakash), Pehle Aap (1944, MD: Naushad), Maharana Pratap (1946, MD: Ram Ganguli) and Naulakha Haar (MD: R C Boral) before destiny took him on a different path. He remembers meeting Rafi Sahab years later who sweetly said “Pandit ji you changed our line (singing)” to which Vyas admitted that he did not see much of a future for himself in singing and hence switched to acting.

After Prithvi Theatre’s first play Shakuntala was staged, Devika Rani (owner of Bombay Talkies) was keen to know who played Rishi Kanva. When she saw the 24 yrs old Vyas she was surprised, she never expected to see such a young man. She offered him a role in a Bombay Talkies film to be directed by actor Jairaj but the film was never made.

When Ramesh Saigal moved away from Prithvi Theatre, he joined Chetan Anand’s company India Pictures as Production Manager. They were working on their next film Neecha Nagar (1946) when Ramesh Saigal offered Vyas a small role (protagonist’s elder brother) in the film. Prithvi Theatre never laid any restrictions on their actors; they could take outside work while working in their plays. Vyas was eager to face the camera and accepted the role with open arms. He is credited as ‘Vyas ji’s in this film. Soon he played a small role in Raj Kapoor‘s Aag (1948) where he is credited as ‘Brijmohan’. But the role that gave him recognition in the film industry was in Barsaat (1949) where he played actress Nargis’ father. For this film he is credited as ‘B. M. Vyas’. Thus Vyas ji’s film career took off and he never looked back.

He has had a long and very successful career of more than four decades and has been part of many memorable classics. He has always been a character artist who started his career with portraying old characters. His last film most probably was Maa (1991).Vyas was very keen to work with the great filmmaker V Shantaram and approached him for work. Shantaram was planning Do Aankhen Barah Haath (1957) and was busy casting actors to play six prisoners in the film. He did not tell him that he is Bharat’s younger brother who was the lyricist of the film. When Vyas approached him, Shantaram was initially a bit apprehensive due to his height but soon cast him as one of the prisoners, Jalia Nai. They had a month-long schedule in Kolhapur. When the reels were sent to Rajkamal Studios for processing, it was found that due to dirt particles on the lens there were lines all across the frame in all the reels and the whole month’s hard work had gone to waste. They had to reshoot the entire thing. Vyas had a tough time managing schedules due to this re-shoot as he had other films in hand too. My favourite scene of this film is where Jalia comes with an intention to kill the Jailor played by Shantaram himself. That scene showcases Vyas ji’s ability as a performer, his entire body language, facial expressions, use of eyes and voice in this scene is a class act, beyond words.

About the classic scene from Sampoorna Ramayan (1961) Vyas said when he was offered the role of Ravan he was thrilled, being Shastri in Sanskrit he had read so much about this mythological character. Hence he was really keen to play the part but Ravan is expected to have a powerful physique while Vyas ji had a lean frame. To overcome this hurdle he got cotton padded clothing made for the role to look fuller. The rising temperature due to lights in addition to studio heat, he would sweat profusely in those cotton padded cloths but he did not let it hinder his performance. That innovative scene where Ravan is interacting with his nine heads was a collective brainchild of Babubhai Mistry and Homi Wadia. Vyas had to enact from a fixed position in front of a stationary camera for fifteen days but the end result was very effective.

On being asked about the most memorable and satisfying moment from his entire career Vyas narrated this incident. Prithvi Theatre’s play Gaddar was being staged in which he was playing the role of Maulana. Once filmmaker Kidar Sharma came to see the play, and was very impressed with his dialog delivery in Urdu. He asked Vyas to meet him. Sharma was working on his next film Shokhian (1951) and was looking for an actor to play the role of Baba Ghani. He gave Vyas a long dialog written in Urdu which Baba Ghani had to say to inspire the soldiers who are running away from the battle field to come back. Vyas said that he can’t read Urdu. Sharma was surprised and asked then how he played the role of Maulana in Gaddar. He said he rehearsed his lines written in Devnagri script and played the part. He asked Sharma to get the dialog written in Devnagri, and promised to prepare and say them the next day.

Next day he said the lines with such perfection that Sharma gave him a small Silver Coin as a token of appreciation. After that Sharma would often ask him to say the lines whenever important people came to meet him. Once actor Dilip Kumar came and he was asked to say the lines in front of him as well. Dilip Sahab was very impressed and remembered that he had heard this voice before. Vyas told him that he may have seen Raj Kapoor’s Barsaat (1949) where he played actress Nargis’ father. Dilip Sahab then recommended Vyas ji’s name to play actress Naseem’s father in the film Baaghi (1953), produced by his brother Ayyub Khan. Fortunately copies of Shokhian (1951) are available and this scene is here for all of us to see. It was heartening to see Vyas recite the same dialogues with such enthusiasm even today, after almost sixty years.

B M Vyas acted in 175 films. His first film was Neecha Nagar-46 and last film was Oh,Darling ! yeh hai India-95.

Vyas ji left for a better world on 11 March, 2013. (Adapted from articles from Maitri Manthan and Blog beete hue din, with thanks.)

Today’s song is a comedy song, sung by Mohd. Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and chorus.

Blog Day?:

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 84
————————————————–

This day ten years ago (viz 22 september 2020) was another normal day for the blog, when six songs from six different movies were discussed. First post of the day appeared at 7:29 AM and the final post at 9:12 AM.

Here are the details:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne Shokhiyaan-1951 All Songs covered
Teri kaafir nigaah kar gayi dil ko tabaah Miss Coca Cola-1955 All Songs covered
Yaad karoon tori batiyaan Mr Lambu-1956 All Songs covered
Tum aur ham bhool ke gham Fashion-1957 06 songs posted
Mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main Aaj Aur Kal-1963 All Songs covered
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai Mahaan-1983 01 song posted

One can see from the above that four out of six movies whose songs were covered ten years ago have been YIPPEED by now,

“Fashion”(1957) was one of the two as yet unYIPPEED movies.

“Fashion”(1957) was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Kuldip Pictures production, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Mala Sinha, Chandrashekhar, Manoj Kumar, Jabeen Jaleel,Sunder, Jabeen Jalil, Jagdish Sethi, Kammo, Leela Misra etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. six songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details :-

Song Posted On
Bahaaron se poochho ・laakh sambhaala magar kho gaya 23.09.2009
Tum aur ham bhool ke gham 22.09.2010
Madbhari hain pyaar ki palkein 05.08.2012
Dharti ki goad mein aasmaan ke chhaaon mein 19.07.2016
Honthon pe tera naam 17.10.2016
Maati ko lajaanaa naa 16.07.2019

It turns out that the last two songs of the movie were multiple version songs. The first part was a multilingual song sung by Sulochana Kadam and Mubarak Begam. The second part in Hindi was sung by Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas was the lyricist. Music was composed by Hemant Kumar.

Part I is listed in HFGK as “Bindu baashi daao more haath, aaj nishi bazaari” which are in Bangla. This song is available as Bharat Ke Lok Geet. This fact is also mentioned in HFGK Part III footnote at page no.349 movie no.697.

On listening to the song, the Bangla portion is not to be found. Marathi, Gujarati, Marwadi and Punjabi portions can be heard. So it appears that the Bangla portion has got omitted for some reason.

Lyrics of this song and other BTYC details were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Lyrics of the first part (the multilingual one) as noted leaves a lot to be desired mainly because of lack of familiarity with the languages. I request our knowledgeable readers familiar with these languages to help fill in and suggest additions/ corrections in the lyrics.

With these songs, all the eight songs of “Fashion”(1957) get covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Moreover, Hemant Kumar now has 300 songs in the blog as a music director.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 78
———————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago viz 13 september 2010 saw six songs getting covered. The fist post appeared at 6:06 AM whereas the sixth and final post of the day appeared at 17:37 AM. Six songs posted within 91 minutes. That is called making short work of the daily blog target ! 🙂

Here are the details of the six songs discussed on 9 september 2010:-

Blog Post number Song Movie Year of release Remarks
2957 Man letaa hai angdaayi Anmol Ghadi 1946 YIPPEED
2958 Haay re insaan ki majbooriyaan Ghoonghat 1960 7 songs covered out of 10

2961 Ba hosho hawaas mein deewaanaa Night in London 1967 YIPPEED
2962 One two three baby yaa yaa yaa Kismat 1968 YIPPEED

As can be seen from the above table, five movies out of six whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. “Anmol Ghadi”(1946) and “Kismat”(1968) got YIPPEED ten years back on this day viz on 13 september 2010 !

So, that leaves us with “Ghoonghat”(1960) as the sole movie eligible for today’s blog Ten year challenge.

As many as seven songs of “Ghoonghat”(1960) have been covered so far. Here are the details:-

Song Posted On
Laage naa moraa jiyaa 13.05.2009
Mori chham chham baaje paayaliyaa 14.05.2009
Kyaa kyaa nazaaren dikhaatin hai ankhiyaan 06.09.2009
Do nain milye do phool khiley 08.09.2010
Haay re insaan ki majbooriyaan 13.09.2010
Ye zindagi ka mausam aur ye samaa suhaanaa 24.03.2012
Meri pat raakho Giridhaari 8.09.2020

Here is the eighth song from Ghoonghat”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is a stage dance performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised on Helen and others. No, it is not a cabarat song, rather it is a proper desi dance performance, where Helen lip syncs in not just Hindi but also in Tamil, Bangla and Punjabi, accompanied by the appropriate regional dances as well.

The picturisation shows Helen and others on stage. Dancing legend Gopi Krishna also joins during the Tamil part of the song.

The audience seated in the front row include Pradeep Kumar, Bina Rai, Minu Mumtaz etc.

Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra, who has done a gallant job in attempting to note down the lyrics of all the languages. I request our knowledgeable readers to help suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable.

Blog Day :

4440 Post No. : 15884

Today’s song is from the film Baadbaan-1954.

This film has some history. After actress Devika Rani left Bombay Talkies in 1945, it was going downhill. The fall had actually started in 1940, after Himanshu Rai’s death. That is when Devika Rani took over the reigns of Bombay Talkies. From the day she was brought back from Calcutta (after the elopement), Devika Rani was not comfortable with Shashdhar Mukherjee. She had always suspected that he instigated the staff against her and they ridiculed her. She caught hold of Amiya Chakraborty in her group and there were clearly two groups in Bombay Talkies management.

As a result of continued friction, a big group of disgruntled staff of the company left Bombay Talkies and later formed Filmistan. Devika Rani was shattered, but the other loyalists helped her and the company continued till 1945. In this year, Devika Rani got married, sold her shares and left the company. The new management kept on making films sporadically, but except film Mahal-1949, no Hit film was made. Finally in 1952, the company was sold to Tolaram jalan, a businessman-not connected with films. In 1952, Bimal Roy made the film ‘Maa’ and Phani majumdar made the film ‘Tamasha ‘, but these too could not save Bombay Talkies.

As a last effort, the employees of Bombay Talkies got together and formed “Bombay Talkies workers’ Industrial Cooperative Society ” and made the film “Baadbaan “-54. As a help to the workers and as a gesture of gratitude, all the artistes of the film, like Dev Anand, Meena Kumari, Usha Kiran,Jairaj, Leela Chitnis etc etc, the director Phani Majumdar and the composers Timir Baran and S K Pal, along with all Technical staff worked free for this film.

In Spite of all this, the film Baadbaan flopped and finally the company was closed down in December-1954. That was the background history of the film Baadbaan. The meaning of this Title word is…Baad means Storm and Baan means Safeguard. The film is about the storm that comes in the life of the Hero and how his life changes after this.

The all-star cast of eleven top-rate players comprised of Dev Anand, Meena Kumari, Usha Kiron, Ashok Kumar, Bipin Gupta, Gope, Krishnakant, Jairaj, Leela Chitnis, Sheikh Mukhtar and Shivraj.The credit for handling this brilliant array or talent goes to Director Phani Mazumdar who also wrote the story and to Nabendu Ghosh whose compact screenplay and terse, but tell­ing, dialogue exploit both the stars and their well-written parts as well as the richly-interest­ing story.

A beautiful, very melodious music score composed by Timir Baran and S.K. Pal, lovely lyrics written by Indivar and Udhav Kumar and superbly choreographed dances designed by the brilliant exponent Shanti Bhardan and Parvati Kumar provide sparkling highlights in this engrossing film.

The picture depicts a story rich in incident and emotional conflict and centers on an orphaned child whose parents, fisher folk, are killed in a storm and who is adopted by a rich, kind and broad-minded philanthropist. The real drama sets in when the boy returns from Eng­land and falls in love with a lovely young so­cialite who reciprocates his love. On hearing of his true parentage, however, her father forbids the marriage but relents at seeing his daugh­ter’s unhappiness.The hero’s overwhelming passion for a beautiful fisher girl from the village of his birth to which he returns, bent on improving his peo­ple’s lot, and his love for his charming wife make for strong emotional power climaxed tragically by the latter’s death and given subtle meaning by his return to his own people and a girl of his own kind.The best performance comes from Usha Kiron who dominates the picture with her gloriously rich portrayal as the fisher girl Mohania. She literally lights up the screen with her brilliant, sympathetic acting.

Dev Anand, as the hero, puts over a good role despite the fact that he tends to fall short in some of his scenes and is a trifle gauche throughout the film. Meena Kumari, as his ill- starred wife, turns in a quiet, polished role in a quite difficult part. Another subtle but telling performance comes from Ashok Kumar who plays her silent lover and the hero’s friend with the consummate ease of a veteran artist.Bipin Gupta and Krishnakant, as the hero’s foster-father and the heroine’s father, act im­peccably as usual. Jairaj, as Dev Anand’s fa­ther, does well in a small part and Leela Chitnis as his mother acts well and looks love­ly. The comedy is provided mainly by Gope who handles his comic and dramatic scenes very well. ( review adapted from Cineplot, with thanks.).

In Spite of all this, the film was not successful at the Box office. The reasons could be any and many, but the film industry is governed by superstitious notions. One of them is that the pair of Dev Anand- Meena Kumari can not bring out anything good. This pair had featured in 4 films. Their first film was ‘Sanam’-51. Of course Meena Kumari was not a Heroine in this film, but her presence in the film with Dev Anand, saw that the Love Birds- Suraiya-Dev Anand separated for ever in their lives, from this film. The director Nandlal Jaswantlal also began a bad patch in his life .

The second film was ‘Tamasha’-52, made by an already sinking Bombay talkies. This film not only failed, but Bombay Talkies also did not remain in a position to make another film. When the workers union made the film Baadbaan-54 -their 3rd film together- the film and the Union, together with Bombay Talkies sank so deep – never to get up again ! That was Curtains for Bombay Talkies !

For the fourth time Dev and Meena kumari came together again in film ‘Kinare Kinare’-63. Lyricist Nyay Sharma was the Producer. The film took 5 years to complete and after its release, flopped miserably, putting Nyay Sharma in the depth of debts ! Seeing this result, no Producer ever dared to bring Dev-Meena Kumari together again, Ever !

I would not believe such stories, but when I saw another example, I started believing this phenomenon. There was yet another pair- Waheeda-Rajendra Kumar- in films, which was called a “KIller Pair”. The first film of this pair was the film ‘Nirmala’ Made by Dalsukh Pancholi. During its making only, Pancholi died and the film went into cans. Second film was ‘Palki’-67, made by S U Sunny. During its making Sunny died on the sets. The film was completed by Mahesh Kaul, but on release it flopped. The third film was S S Vasan’s “Shatranj”-69. During its making Vasan died. Their fourth and last film together was “Dharati’-70, made by Director Shreedhar. During its making, the producer-Shreedhar’s mother died. After this film, no one dared to bring this pair together again, ever !

In our film industry, such stories of ‘Lucky” -“Unlucky” actors, directors and MDs are many. Maybe some more stories, some other time….

Here is the 6th song from the film Baadbaan-54. It is sung by Manna Dey, Asha Bhosle and chorus. The song’s duration is only 2.50minutes, but it’s prelude music runs for 1.18 minutes…one of the longest, maybe.

Blog Day :

Remembrance day of Jaikishan :
———————————–
Today i.e. 12th September, 2020 is 49th death anniversary of Jaikishan, a half of Shankar-Jaikishan.

I have just now read the detailed Wikipedia Page of Shankar-Jaikishan, so will reproduce some para’s which are worthy of mention in terms of Jaikishan’s death anniversary.

“Shankar Jaikishan enjoyed an unrivalled position in the Hindi film industry. During their heyday and even toward the later part of their career, they were the highest paid music directors in the industry. Barring stray exceptions, they were paid more than the leading actors and the promotional material of their films would give them more prominence than anyone else.”

“What can I say… my musical partner in life has gone, what is left of me to say anything more, I had never thought that at such an early age he would leave us all and go; Anyway his good qualities of maintaining goodwill, giving love and receiving love were innate in him and I too don’t have them in me. He used to regularly remind me of my innate quality of being in a boisterous mood all the time and always abrasive with some one or the other and so on and so forthwith…….”
(Shankar on Jaikishan’s death in an interview with AmeenSayani.)

The page also has this to say about Shankar Jaikishan, vis-à-vis different singers :

“Shankar Jaikishan combo worked above all of with Mohd Rafi and secondly Mukesh, and produced numbers of hits and unmatchable gems. Mohd Rafi was their favourite singer despite having good reputation with other playback singers of its time.”

I read somewhere else, that the mukhda of the song “Ye mera prempatra padh kar” from ‘Sangam’ was actually taken from the letter written by Jaikishan to his than fiancée “Priya”. So this could be the instance where Jaikishan unwittingly revealed that he is the composer of the block-buster song. This caused a rift between the two as Jaikishan broke the unwritten agreement between them, of not revealing which of them is the creator of any particular song. Here, Rafi Sahab is said to have intervened and solved the issue between Shankar and Jaikishan, and also later on between Lata Mangeshkar and Shankar in the mid 70’s.

But there is no doubt of the truth here when it is said that “Shankar-Jaikishan, along with other artists, composed “everlasting” and “immortal melodies” in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s.[2] Their best work was noted for being “raga-based and having both lilt and sonority”.

All hindi film music fans agree that they changed the face of hindi film music with “Barsaat” and the success of the film and its music played a big role in this change.

The music I think was versatile and inspiring to new music directors. Theirs was a first of its kind duo, as far as I know who combined their talents and acumen with two lyrcists and made a fearsome foursome. They can also be called fabulous and formidable. They had to be, to be on top of the game for two decades. Shankar-Jaikishan can also be credited for starting the trend of version songs, one male and one female version. Contemporaries and seniors like Naushad and S.D.Burman rarely did it. Naushad in “Mere Mehboob” and S. D. Burman in “Sharmilee” and “Tere Ghar Ke saamne”. But in the later instance, it was both male solos.

I am actually trying to wrap up the long running series on Mohammad Rafi songs, so trying not to look for a Rafi Sahab song for posting on this occasion. But as luck would have it, I found this popular song from ‘Pyaar hi Pyaar’(1969). Moreover this song has a stamp of Shankar-Jaikishan signature style in the orchestration of the music. This is an Asha-Rafi duet, with the fast pace and beat. This is the manifestation of Asha Bhonsle making inroads in the Shankar Jaikishan cap, which started with “Teesri Kasam”. Shankar-Jaikishan were known for Lata only music scores through 50’s and not just for R.K. films. I think the exceptions to this were very rare and few, where Asha, Geeta Dutt or Shamshad Begum got to sing Shankar Jaikishan compositions. Suman Kalyanpur was one such alternative which Shankar Jaikishan tried, in mid- 60’s for duets with Rafi sahab.

I have also tried to find if Shankar Jaikishan ever re-used their own tune to compose songs, but could not find any such songs. Their music was a huge commercial success, so no one else could try and copy their songs.

The song I am presenting in a party song, where Vijayanthi Mala is trying to make Dharmendra jealous, flaunting a dance partner. There are other popular Rafi solos in the film, but this would be the most popular, with the title song of the film ’dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyar hi pyar beshumaar’.


Song-Tu mera main teri duniya jaley to jaley (Pyaar Hi Pyaar)(1969) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaiskishan

Here are the details of the six songs (from six different movies):-

Four out of six movies that were taken up ten years ago on this date have been YIPPEED by now. Out of the remaining two movies, “Baazaar” (1949) has 16 movies and 15 of them are covered,. Thge remaining one song (Nazar se mil hi jaayegi nazar aahista aahistaa) could not be located so far, and therefore tyhis movie is still upYIPPEED.

That leaves us with “Girls’ Hostel”(1962). This movie had made its debut in the blog ten years ago. So far four songs (out of six) have been covered in the blog. Here are their details:-

Song Date
Suljhaao na uljhi zulfon ko 10 september 2010
Ye haseen raat ye bahaar ye samaan 10 December 2010
Bartan kalai karaa lo 20 October 2012
Idhar bhi haseena udhar bhi haseena 4 January 2016

This movie was Produced by Babu Bhai Desai and Ravindra Dave and directed by Ravindra Dave. The movie had Nalini Jaywant, Ajit, Johnny Walker, Shamlal, Chand Burque, Cuckoo, Kanchan, Madhu, Nagpal, Nasreen, Radha Bai, Triza, Ulfat, Tina etc in it.

Today, as “blog Ten Year Challenge”, here is the fifth song from “Girls’ Hostel”(1962) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Gulshan Baawra is the lyricist (as can be seen from the label on the record for this song in the link). Music is composed by Ravi.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. Going by the sounds of it, and considering the star cast, this song could well have been picturised on Cuckkoo as a club dance song. I request our knopwledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.


Song-Main akeli mere dildaar bahot (Girls’ Hostel)(1962) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Today 8th September is eighty-seventh birth anniversary (born on 8th September’1933) of Asha Bhonsle. On this occasion as we wish her a very ‘happy birthday’ today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead, we are also going to enjoy a song sung by her.

This melodious song is from a lesser known movie ‘Jaadui Angoothhi-1964’.

‘Jaadui Angoothhi-1964’ alias ‘Magic Ring’ was directed by A.M. Khan for ‘A.M. Khan Productions, Bombay’. It had Chitra, Manhar Desai, Sheri, Krishnakumari, S.K. Shyam, Anil Kashmiri, Jilani, Uma Khosla, Violet, Ameerbai Karnataki, Sujata, Saroj, Sabina, Balwant Sharma, Kallan, Bagla, Chaman, Deva Kumari, Kanta Kumari and Polsan and others.

This movie had five songs composed by Suresh Kumar. Lyrics were written by Anjaan and Zafar Rahi. (HFGK mentions Anjaan and Zafar Rahi for one song each on the movie details’ page of this movie and adds in ‘addenda’ it further mentions Zafar Rahi as lyricist for song number three. I guess that all other songs are written by Anjaan so it mmeans three songs were penned by Anjaan and two by Zafar Rahi).

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Munshi Nayaab and dialogues were written by A.K. Khan. Editing of this movie was done by G.G. Patil and he was assisted by Rohi Das

Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Minoo Purshottam, Sulochana Chawhan, Subir Sen and Kamal Barot have given their voices to the songs in this movie. One song sung by Mahendra Kapoor had been posted on the blog earlier which was written by Zafar Rahi.

One song , Kahaan nazar takraayi has been discussed in the blog on 9 january 2014.

When the first song of this movie was posted more details about the movie were not available. Now the movie itself is available on internet, however I have not watched this movie and would request knowledgeable reader who had watched it to throw more light on this movie and its songs. Also, I am unable to identify the actress performing on this song. I would request readers who can identify her to kindly let us know who this actress is.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and composed by Suresh Kumar as mentioned above. I guess that the lyricist for today’s song is Anjaan.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …


Song-Sanan na na na nan hawa lehraaye (Jaadui Angoothhi)(1964) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Suresh Kumar

Lyrics

Ho o
Sanan na na na na na na na nan
Hawaa lehraaye
Sana na na na na na na na
Hawaa lehraaye
Haaye re aanchal
Ud ud ud jaaye
Chhanan na na na na na nan
Jiyaa bal khaaye
Haaye re paayal
Gun gun gun gaaye
Sanan na na na na na na na
Hawaa lehraaye

Dar hai mujhko
In raahon mein
Main na kho jaaun oon oon
Aaj to main apni chhaaya
Se bhi sharmaaun
Ye kya hone lagaa
Dil machalne lagaa
Kaise uljhan padi
Sochti hoon khadi
Ho o
Sanan na na na na na na nan
Hawaa lehraaye
Haaye re aanchal
Ud ud ud jaaye
Sanan na na na na na na na
Hawaa lehraaye

Aaj mere
Honthon par kyun
Geet machle jaayen
Main chaloon to
Raaste mein
Phool bikhre jaayen ae
Koi mujhse kahe
Kya huaa hai mujhe
Aankh jhukti hai kyun
Saans rukti hai kyun
Raaz aisa hai kya
Dil ye samjhe naa
Samjhe naa
Samjhe naa
Ho o
Sanan na na na na na na nan
Hawaa lehraaye
Haaye re aanchal
Ud ud ud jaaye
Chhanan na na na na nan
Jiya bal khaaye
Haaye re paayal
Gun gun gaaye
Sanan na na na na na na na
Hawaa lehraaye

हो ओ
सन न न न न न न न न न`न
हवा लहराए
सन न न न न न न
हवा लहराए
हाए रे आँचल
उड़ उड़ उड़ जाए
छनन न न न न न न`न
जिया बल खाए
हाए रे पायल
गुन गुन गुन गाए
सन न न न न न न न न
हवा लहराए

डर है मुझको
इन राहों में
मैं ना खो जाऊं
आज तो मैं अपनी छाया
से भी शरमाऊं
ये क्या होने लगा
दिल मचलने लगा
कैसे उलझन पड़ी
सोचती हूँ खड़ी
हो ओ
सन न न न न न न न न न`न
हवा लहराए
हाए रे आँचल
उड़ उड़ उड़ जाए
सन न न न न न न
हवा लहराए

आज मेरे
होंठों पर क्यूँ
गीत मचले जाएँ
मैं चलूँ तो रास्ते में
फूल बिखरे जाएँ ऐ
कोई मुझसे कहे
क्या हुआ है मुझे
आँख झुकती है क्यूँ
साँस रूकती है क्यूँ
राज़ ऐसा है क्या
दिल ये समझे ना
समझे ना
समझे ना

हो ओ
सन न न न न न न न न न`न
हवा लहराए
हाए रे आँचल
उड़ उड़ उड़ जाए
छनन न न न न न न`न
जिया बल खाए
हाए रे पायल
गुन गुन गुन गाए
सन न न न न न न न न न`न
हवा लहराए

S. Mohinder (8/09/1925-6/9/2020) : A tribute
————————————————–

Just as I was preparing this post for the birth anniversaries of both S. Mohinder and Asha Bhosle, comes the news demise of S. Mohinder. As I don’t know much about the music director, I was looking up on Google for basic information if it is available. I found the sad news and this news item.
S. Mohinder, among the last of the musicians of the 40’s, was born in Punjab on 8th September, 1925. The end has come just two days before he was to turn 95.

K. S. Shenoy Sir had made this comment to my recent post :

Nahm Ji, not heard this one before. Nice rendering by Rafi Ji.
At the beginning when I read that the post is about a children’s song, two songs immediately flashed in my mind
(Iconic) ‘Nanhe Munne….’
And ‘O mere pyarozameenke taro…’. Such beautiful song by Rafi Ji ,Asha&Sudha. Though not a sad tune, in the context of the movie it brings tears to my eyes.

He also gave the link for this song from the film ‘Zameen Ke Taare” (1960), which I found to be very sweet and poignant. Not just the mukhda only which Rafi sahab is singing, but the stanzas by two kids for whom Asha Bhonsle and Sudha Malhotra are singing. This was an unknown song and I heard it for the first time that day. It felt a familiar and dear song right from the first hearing. It is a lorry song also with the lorry driver, who is I think ‘Anwar Hussain’, the brother of Nargis. But his filmography everywhere has missed this movie,”Zameen ke Taare”, where he is getting to sing such a melodious song. The songs are composed by S. Mohinder and lyricist of this song is Pandit Indra.

Since I am doing anniversary posts regularly whenever possible, I decided to write a post for this children’s song for 8th September is the birth date of both S. Mohinder and Asha Bhonsle.
But that 95th birthday was not destined to be. So as a tribute to S. Mohinder I am reproducing a few lines from the famous song by the veteran composer of melodious songs :

mere liye sahar bhi aayi hai raat ban kar
niklaa meraa janaazaa meri baraat ban kar
achchhaa huaa jo tumne dekhaa na ye nazaaraa
haafiz khudaa tumhaaraa
guzraa huaa zamaanaa
aataa nahin dubaaraa
haafiz khudaa tumhaaraa
haafiz khudaa tumhaaraa

The famous song actually starts with this sha’ir byTanvir Naqvi :

Bhool jaana meri wafaaon ko
Bakhsh denaa meri khataaon ko…..

May the departed soul, rest in eternal, heavenly peace.


Song-O mere pyaaron zameen ke taaron (Zameen Ke Taare)(1960) Singers-Rafi, Sudha Malhotra, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Pt Indra, MD-S Mohinder

Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last four months of the year. Just got the first positive message “Sab theek raha toh iss baar 31 December ko nayaa saal aane ki nahi, purana saal jaane ki party karenge”. (Wish I could write this in Devnagari) I am sure I need not translate this.

Just as I was sitting to write this our Peevesie messaged that “Josef-Born in Grace”, a movie that was her first independent assignment as costume designer, has won an award at the Madrid International Film Festival for Best Set Design at the awards function on Sunday evening (6th September). Incidentally that movie also got her, her life-partner and is from her in-law’s production house.
In a celebratory mood I asked her for her farmaish of an Asha Bhonsle song and today’s song is her choice. She has a love for that movie, its songs and the dress/costume (in particular) that Amisha Patel wore in the song. She reminds me that as a tiny-little girl she had also worn a similar Pink Skirt and White Top.

This movie is 20 years old. It made its debut on the blog in 2014 with the song ek-pal-ka-jeena-phir-to-hai-jaana. That was a post to wish the hero of the movie. Today’s song is to wish our evergreen Ashatai (as Asha Bhonsle is addressed by one and all).

Ashatai celebrates her 87th birthday today. She was the third born to Pandit Deenanath Mangeshkar and his wife Shevanti, Lata Mangeshkar being the oldest. I read somewhere recently that her older sister Meena Khadikar shares her birthdate (would love if someone can confirm this). Usha Mangeshkar and Hridaynath Mangeshkar are the other siblings, part of this musical clan. Their children and grandchildren are also into music and carrying the family tradition forward.

Followers of the blog are aware that she began singing in films when she was hardly 10 years old with a Marathi song in 1943. Her first Hindi song came in 1948 when she sang under Hansraj Behl’s music direction. She has had a long innings since then and initially she used to get songs that were filmed on the second lead or vamps etc. I don’t think that there is any need to write about how she sang more songs than many other artists in the ‘50s though for B and C grade movies. She had to work so that her family could be taken care of. She worked her way up the rungs of the industry and became the favourite of the masses and classes. If the masses loved her “piya tu ab toh aaja” the connoisseurs and classes loved her for her “in aankhjon ki masti ke” and ‘dil cheez kya hai aap meri jaan lijiye”. People have loved her “aage bhi jaane na tu” and “mera kuch saaman tumhaare paas pada hai”.

Today’s song is a party song. It is on board a yacht and is part of the Christmas eve celebrations. Amisha Patel has just found that she likes Hrithik Roshan who is as yet unaware of his feelings. She sings and dances to try and make him envious and displays her fondness for her childhood friend Rajesh Tandon. Payal Malhotra or Kamya Punjabi (not sure) is the girl who is trying to get Hrithik’s attentions. This song is written by Saawan Kumar and is the only Asha Bhonsle song in the movie all the other songs are sung by Alka Yagnik. Rajesh Roshan is the music director.

Here is wishing our darling Ashatai a very Happy Birthday


Song-Jaaneman jaaneman palat teri nazar (Kaho Na Pyaar Hai)(2000) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sawan Kumar, MD-Rajesh Roshan
