Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a walk down memory lane for me. I had seen this movie with my dad in the movie hall and subsequently he had purchased the cassette of its songs too. The songs from this album along with those of “Yaraana”, “Qurbaani” and “Sholay” used to be played constantly on holidays and I had learnt all the songs from these ‘by heart’ prompting the elders in the family to comment that if I had shown similar passion in studies I would have been a topper, not that I was a bad student but I used to top only in mathematics and was reasonably good at all other extra or co-curricular activities.

But that is not the subject of this post.

The subject of this post is Zeenat Aman. It is her birthday today and I would like to present this song to emphasise on how stylish she was.
The song is from the 1978 release “Heeralal Pannalal” about which Atulji has written a very interesting post with this song .

“Heeralal Pannalal” made its debut on the blog with the Pancham- Asha Bhonsle duet on the occasion of Amjad Khans’ birthday. The next song posted for Premnath’s birthday was the second version of the first song posted. It was treated as two posts as the lyrics were different and RD had given entirely different look to them. The movie has six songs and the fourth came on the blog for Shashi Kapoor’s birthday and the fifth one is here for Zeenat’s birthday. I think we should rename this movie as Birthday Special. Whatsay?

The songs were the handiwork of Majrooh and R D Burman. Today’s song is a stage song. The song happens as the two innocent and kind hearted heroes are trying to run away from some goons and land up (drop on would be more correct) on the stage as the heroines are awaiting the arrival of two professional dancers to help them in some inter college competition. The professionals walk-in just as song is coming to a close. This is the first time that the couples meet.

Let us pray for the speedy recovery of Lata Mangeshkar who sings today’s song with Asha, Bupinder and Kishore Kumar.
Happy Birthday to you Zeenie a.k.a Zeenat Aman.

hullo Atuldom

B. R. Chopra’s romantic comedy “Pati Patni Aur Woh”, based on the “seven-year itch” of Hollywood starring Marilyn Monroe made its blog debut on 25th February 2009 with the most famous song of the movie thhande thhande paani se nahaana chaahiye. After three years na aaj thha na kal thha was posted on the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s Birthdate. After almost a full year Sudhirji gave us this article on a song which can be called as a “movie inside a movie” song.

All the posts with these songs give us a fair idea of what a fun movie “Pati, Patni Aur Woh” was. Hence, I am not writing any gist of the movie. The idea to revisit this movie came as there are promos of a modern version of this movie being shown on Television these days. I found that there are five songs in the movie and three have been posted on the blog. On going through YouTube, I could find only four songs from the movie. (resolution: shall sit through the movie one of these days to see if it has the missing song). I remember that “o duniya ke rakhwale” was used in the movie, actually only one line of the mukhda, when Sanjeev Kumar wants to reset his alarm clock. That was in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor.

I am trying desperately to refrain from writing what a fine actor Harihar Jethalal Jariwala -popular as Sanjeev Kumar- was, or about his comic timing or about his smart looks and smile. I am also not going to list out the wonderful movies that he has acted in or how much I love seeing him in emotional scenes. We have a brilliant post by Sudhirji mujhko to qaatil ki itni pehchaan hai which will give us a picture of the kind of actor Haribhai (as his friends in the industry addressed him).

Today on the occasion of the 34th remembrance day of Haribhai we can have the last available song from “Pati Patni Aur Woh”. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor, written by Anand Bakshi and Ravindra Jain was the composer. This lively song is at the wedding of friends of the lead couple, who later go ahead and get married (in the movie 🙂 ). The song kind of follows the qawwali format. This was one of the movies where Sanjeev Kumar acted his age and was not an aged person meaning senior citizen.


Song-Ladki cycle waali (Pati Patni Aur Woh)(1978) Singers-Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

“Watan” (1954) was directed by N Bhatt for Falcon Pictures. This movie had Trilok Kapoor, Nirupa Roy, Munawwar Sultana, Jayant, Gope, Madan Puri, Cuckoo, Surya Kumar etc in it.

There were six songs in this movie. Two songs from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Watan” (1954) to appear in the blog. This rare song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hafiz Khan.

Only the audio of this song is available. Assuming that Nirupa Roy was the leading lady of the movie, my guess is that this song (and other songs sung by Asha Bhonsle in th movie) were lip synced by Nirupa Roy. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Taqdeer ka kehna hai ki.. roti hai to roya karey barbaad mohabbat (Watan)(1954) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-Hafiz Khan

Lyrics

Taqdeer ka kehna hai ki ??
ghar hi jalaa doongi ee ee
rehta hai jahaan pyaar
wahaan aag laga doongi

roti hai to roya kare barbaad mohabbat
duniya mein na hogi kabhi aabaad mohabbat
roti hai to roya karey barbaad mohabbat

pehle to muqaddar ne tujhe mera banaaya
phir mere hi haathon se tujhe qaid karaaya
dil rota hai ae ae ae ae
dil rota hai
aur karti hai fariyaad mohabbat
duniya mein na hogi kabhi aabaad mohabbat
roti hai to roya karey barbaad mohabbat

barbaad ye dil thhaame jigar dekh rahi hoon
dekha nahin jaata hai magar dekh rahi hoon
Allah kar r r r r
Allah kar is gham se tu aazaad muhabbat
duniya mein na hogi kabhi aabaad mohabbat
roti hai to roya karey barbaad mohabbat a a a

“Tyaag”(1976) had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog. This movie was one of the last movies with music by S D Burman.

Today (31 october 2019) is the 44th remembrance day of S D Burman (1 October 1906 – 31 October 1975). On this occasion, here is a song from “Tyaag”(1976). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

This song, containing the phrase “Kora kaaghaz”, which was there in a song of “Aradhana”(1969) as well, is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo to Atuldom

Its been a few weeks since I wrote a post. I have missed the birthdates of a few of my favourites. I won’t put the blame of these misses on the festival season as then we will have to excuse Atulji his numerous blank dates on the blog which we don’t do; we expect at least one post per day from him.

I get notifications on my mailbox from one of the many music compilation sites which I had stumbled upon a few years ago. I don’t open mail notifications that often specially from this site but today I did. It had songs which I had not heard in years. Today’s list began with the song “my name is Suzy” from “An Evening in Paris” and then played a few numbers in various genres.

One of the songs made me sit up. I had never heard this song which was in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I quickly googled for it and found that it was a song penned by Amit Khanna and Bappi Lahiri was the composer. And no, it was not a disco song or nor was it what we generally expect from the Bappi Lahiri baton. I heard it twice and then went looking for its video. I had another shock. It was picturised on Helen and no it was not a typical Helen-style item or cabaret. The expressions she gave in that song reminded me of another Helen- Bappi Lahiri song.

All this put me on a search mode for the details of the song which I heard today. One thing it did was remind me of the song from “Paanch Qaidi”- “Jeena to hai par ae dil kahaan”. But here are the details of the song- it is from a movie called “Josh” which was released in 1981. It starred Vidya Sinha, Helen, Sarika, Sheetal, Amjad Khan, Anil Dhawan, Raj Kiran, Deven Verma, Shakti Kapoor etc. The movie was directed by Raj Sippy. It was his second film after “Inkaar”. The common factor in the two movies being Amjad Khan, Vidya Sinha, Helen and Gurbachan. From what I read about the movie on IMDB.com Amjad Khan played a central character and Vidya Sinha had a role which was different from what she was known to play. If the movie had been successful, we would have had all the main actors in “Hatke” roles but that was not to be.

After hearing the song, I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 october 2019). Here is wishing her a healthy life with all her friends and dear ones around her. Here is the song which I liked hope all the followers of the blog like it too.


Song-Sab kuchh to hai sab kuchh toh thha(Josh)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Amit Khanna, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

sab kuchh toh hai
sab kuchh toh tha
kaise kahein hum
in donon mein hai

haan kitna
haan kitna anjaana faasla
sab kuchh toh hai
sab kuchh toh tha

Amitabh Bachhchan, the star of the Millennium, was born in the than Allahabad (which is the English name of city named Ilahbad in Urdu) on 11.10.1942. His given name is Inquilab Srivastava, as per Wikipedia. This is a surprise for me and surely for many people, as a never heard fact. Also has the distinction of acting as the hero in the film ‘Inquilab’ not named after him :-). His father did name him after the slogan of freedom movement “Inquilab Zindabad”. I have never heard of anyone named ‘inquilab’, but have a friend named ‘Kranti’ which is the same thing with change in language only.

So, on 11.10.2019, he is celebrating 77th birthday as the most celebrated star actor and film personality. The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shree in 1984, the Padma Bhushan in 2001 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015 The Government of France honoured him with its highest civilian honour, “Knight of the Legion of Honour”, in 2007 for his exceptional career in the world of cinema and beyond. As per Wikipedia page again, he has won 15 filmfare awards, the most nominated actor with 41 nominations so far and still counting.

His achievements include 4 national awards and Dada Saheb Phalke award for “Lifetime Achievement”.

Luckily, I had the lyrics of this song from the film “Shaan” (1980) ready to present as the birthday celebration post. I said in my reply to Peevecie’s Mom’s comments on this post that BEST buses is a topic of another post. I had this song in mind, most of which is picturized on a BEST double decker bus. “BEST” was formerly Bombay Electricity Supply and Transport, now it is renamed as ‘Brihan Mumbai Electricity Supply and Transport”. My father has been saying this to us right from the beginning that though BEST’s face are the buses which have been the more reliable lifeline of Bombay since almost a century now, its main business and source of income is the electricity supply to the city areas.

If I have to write about the BEST than the story has to start with my father. It is in family folklore that my father had after completing engineering had the option of coming to Mumbai (than Bombay) or to go to Lucknow to join the Railways. This was in the early 60’s, and Bombay was a known place of people in the family, who used to visit it for business purposes also. Also my mother’s ‘Maternal uncle’ had studied in Grant Medical College in the 40’s and everyone was familiar with the city. There was a job in hand in Lucknow, which is an unknown place, nobody in the family had ever been and far away from Belgaum. The family was in favour of Bombay as my father’s sister was already staying here at Kalyan. The decision was left to my father’s youngest sister, who voted in favour of Bambai. So he came to Bombay and joined BEST as a “foreman” trainee. There is a lot more I want to write about my father’s journey (most of it is related to BEST), but will save it for another post. Sometimes I do wonder, if he had gone to Lucknow instead of coming to Mumbai, how different the things would have turned out. I envy the people who have spent their formative years in Lucknow(met a few in my working life), their diction of Urdu language. Some of them, though convent educated did speak a fluent form of spoken khari boli which is closer in diction and grammar to the Urdu that our teachers taught us, compared to my own, the so called Urdu medium product, with our typical bambaiyya dialect. More of the royal ‘aap’ and ‘hum’ in the conversations of people of my generations who spent years in Lucknow, or thereabouts, even as far as some northern cities of Madhya Pradesh.

Will go back to Amitabh Bachchan for now. The first movie I am aware of watching in the theatre is “Do aur do Paanch”, with a similar star cast of Amitabh, Shashi Kapoor and Parween Babi, similar to ‘Shaan’ I mean. Incidently both these films were released in the same year. But we all saw “Do aur do paanch” at Belgaum during summer vacations, whereas “Shaan” was seen in Mumbai. Thereafter, Amitabh Bachchan movies were seen regularly, with the whole family. The movies of before 1980 are all seen on TV, but the movies after 1980, including “Silsila”, “Kaalia”, “Namak Halaal”, ‘Naseeb”,”KhudgarzKhuddaar”, “bemisaal”, ‘Laawaris” etc. I remember watching in theatre.

My personal favorite Amitabh films are not the comic or multistarrers, but his solo films like ‘Zanjeer’, ‘Bemisaal”, ‘Kaalia”, “Abhimaan” ‘Anand’ etc. Among the films of the new millennia, I have seen a few, but missed most of them. He is without doubt the longest running superstar of the hindi film industry.

So here in this song there are four singers, Kishore Kumar for Amitabh Bachchan, Mohammed Rafi for Shashi Kapoor, Asha Bhosle for Parveen Babi and Usha Mangeshkar for Bindiya Goswami. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and is composed by R. D. Burman.

The film is ‘Shaan’(1980), also mentioned in para 4 above.

Hullo Atuldom

The 80s was a period when there were a whole set of “Made in South” movies. Movies essentially remakes of popular and successful Telugu, Tamil and Kannada movies. Movies with nearly same formula- one hero and two heroines, both ladies loving the hero equally with the hero behaving courteously with one and loving the other passionately. To add further twist, the heroines will be sisters (as in Tohfa), childhood best friends (as in Raaste Pyar Ke), or meet accidentally and become good friends (as in Maang Bharo Sajna and Asha Jyoti).

All the movies would have good songs which used to be popular in the 80s and 90s but may have been forgotten since. The most important aspect of these movies used to be that one of the heroines would sacrifice her love or never reveal her love so that the other can lead a happy life with her partner/ husband etc. The hero in most of these South-made movies was Jeetendra and the heroines were mostly Rekha, Reena Roy, Shabana Azmi, Moushumi Chatterjee, Jaya Prada or Sridevi. Taking note of the success of Jeetendra in these movies Rajesh Khanna also acted in a few South-made movies.

Asha Jyoti was one of them. The movie had five songs with Anuradha Paudwal, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar as playback singers. Anjaan was the lyricist and Laxmi Pyare were the music directors. One song has been posted from the movie. In that post Atulji has speculated about the status of the relations between the main cast. I have seen this movie a long time back and here is the story of the movie, hope that it clears all speculations. 🙂

Asha Jyoti (1984) had Rajesh Khanna, Reena Roy and Rekha as the main cast. The film was directed by Dasari Narayana Rao, who had also directed Aaj Ka M.L.A. Ram Avtar with Khanna in the lead role and music was given by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film is remake of Telugu Movie Srivari Muchatlu (1981).

Ramesh Chander (Om Shivpuri), a businessman, asks his son Deepak (Rajesh Khanna), a musician, if he would marry his childhood friend Asha (Rekha), but Deepak keeps declining this idea. Deepak falls in love with one of his fans named Jyoti (Reena Roy), a dancer, and he informs his parents by telegram that he has chosen a girl. Deepak promises to pay off the debts owed by Jyoti’s father. But when Deepak reaches his home in Bombay (now Mumbai), he finds that Ramesh has committed suicide due to bankruptcy. Ramesh expresses his last wish that his second wife and her daughter be taken care of. Deepak is delayed in Bombay and is unable to return to Kashmir.

In Kashmir, Jyoti’s creditor asks her father for money, but Jyoti expresses her inability to pay, so the creditor warns Jyoti’s father she will be in grave trouble. When Deepak does arrive at Jyoti’s house, her father lies, saying that he has married her off to the creditor. Deepak is heartbroken and returns home.

Seth Badri Prasad (Madan Puri), a rich man and childhood friend of Ramesh, bails Deepak out from bankruptcy and gets Ramesh’s creditors to not to file suit against Deepak and to auction the bungalow that he would buy. Deepak feels indebted to Prasad. Badri Prasad had been forcing his friend Ramesh Chander to ask Deepak to marry Asha, daughter of Badri Prasad. After Deepak returns to Bombay, his mother suggests to him that he should now get settled in his life and bring some happiness in his life and so he marries Asha. During the wedding, Deepak observes a woman similar to Jyoti. Deepak searches for the Jyoti lookalike and finds the woman was actually Jyoti.

Now Deepak knows that Jyoti was not married to Hukumchand (Roopesh Kumar) and that her father had lied to him. Jyoti had come to Bombay in search of Deepak and tells him that she is the mother of Deepak’s child. Deepak decides to end his marriage with Asha and to tell Asha the truth, but Jyoti insists that Asha would not be able to remarry as society might discard her. Jyoti asks Deepak to act as if they had never met and be a loyal husband of Asha, so that Jyoti can take care of Deepak’s child.

Later, Jyoti becomes a popular dance teacher in her city. Asha decides to learn dancing form Jyoti and they become close friends. Asha discloses that her husband is not loving her and he does not even come close to her. Jyoti visits Asha’s home and learns that Asha is none other than Deepak’s wife. Jyoti tells Deepak to be a true husband to Asha and give Asha the pleasures of married life.

Asha learns that Jyoti and Deepak were lovers before her marriage to Deepak and suspects they are having an affair. Asha found that Deepak and Jyoti are well-wishers of Asha, are innocent and victims of the unpredictable nature of fate. After coming to know the truth, Asha and Jyoti decide to sacrifice their respective lives to let the other live a nice happy married life with Deepak.

Sitting through the movie was not a pain. I loved the way the ladies (over) dressed in silk sarees and had extra long hair plaited in the traditional South Indian Style complete with a garden full of flowers on their hair and heavy jewellery. There was a time in my life when I yearned to have hair like my idol -Rekha- sported in these movies. These movies also showed that Rekha was an artist who followed all instructions of the choreographer and enacted the semi-classical dances that were there in the movie, as can be seen in the song of this movie that is already posted. She also had large eyes that conveyed a variety of emotions.

Today’s song comes towards the end of the movie where we have Asha dressing up Jyoti as a bride and trying to rectify the wrong that fate has delivered on Deepak and his Jyoti (the movies in this genre excelled in naming their characters). We also see that Deepak and Jyoti are not comfortable with this turn of events but Asha prevails on them and we have this Asha Bhonsle play backed song.

I am sure the readers have guessed why I chose a song that has the “oh! so beautiful!” Rekha for today’s post. Yes, she turns a year older today and it has become a compulsion for me that write atleast a small post to wish her.
Wish you a very happy birthday Rekhaji.


Song-Aayi pehli milan ki wo raat (Asha Jyoti)(1984) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

ho o o
kitne saawan pyaase tarse
tabhi suhaagan raat aati hai
aati hai toh
pyaar se mann ka kora aanchal bhar jaati hai
kora aanchal bhar jaati hai ae
pyaase mann pe huyi kya barsaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
yeh hai do saanson ka sangam
apne jiya ko bas mein rakhna
dil ki dhadkan jaaye na thham
kaisi hoti hai
kaisi hoti hai pehli mulaakaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
pyaar se saajan ka mann jeete
wahi dulhan hai yahaan suhaagan
o o o o
kiski jeet huyi re kiski maat
sawere hume batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

Blog Day :

4083 Post No. : 15223

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 45
——————————————————————————————

The date today 22 september 2019. It is a sunday.

Ten years ago, this date (22 september 2009) was a working day. I was in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Despite that day being a working day, I had covered as many as eight songs on that day. Posting six or more songs in a day used to be no big deal for me.

Here are the details of the eight songs that were covered on 22 september 2009.

Song (Movie title) Year Posting time Remarks
Aandhiyaan gham ki yoon chalin (Zeenat) 1945 1:29 All Songs covered on the blog
Wo marne se nahin darte (Shama Parwaana) 1954 2:19 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaye chaand ne aansoo (Lagan) 1955 5:00 TWO/out of Eight songs covered
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye (Hamdard) 1953 5:38 All Songs covered on the blog
Mujh ko tum jo mil gaye (Detective) 1958 7:10 Seven/out of Eight songs covered
Idhar to haath la pyaare (Aakhri Daao) 1958 7:59 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaron se poochho (Mera Ghar Mere Bachche) 1960 8:11 Five/out of Nine songs covered
Dharti 1970 8:34 All Songs covered on the blog

As can be noticed, I was awake till 2:19 AM after midnight and I had already posted two songs for the day. They I went back to sleep and woke up before 5 AM. Then I posted six more songs. The eights and final song for the day was posted at 8:24 AM !

Those were the days when I could post eight songs in a day by early morning ! What productivity ! 🙂

I hardly slept those days and that did not even affect my health. My wife, whenever she would join me would make adverse comments about my tendency to sleep less. Her persistent nagging may have finally borne fruit because these days I neither keep awake that late nor do I wake up so early. And I no longer post that many songs in a day. I actually wonder now how I was that motivated one decade ago.

By contrast from ten years ago, today (22 september 2019)I have so far posted just one post.

Here is the second song from the day, when it is already evening. This song is part of the blog ten year challenge. As can be seen from the table above, four out of eight movies have been YIPPEED by now. So only the remaining movies can be taken up for this ten year challenge.

The song taken up for this challenge is from “Lagan”(1955). This movie was produced by directed by O P Dutta for O P Films, Bombay. The movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Sajjan, Shammi, Randheer, Raj Mehra, Baby Naaz, Pappu, Om Prakash, Shamlal, Ram Avtar, Baij Sharma, Pt Iqbal, Shivrj, Uma Dutt, Parshuram, Kanwar Kesho etc , with guest appearance by David.

The song under discussion is the third song out of eight songs that this movie has.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricisr. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song appears to be a lullaby song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scparwala.

Blog Day :

4083 Post No. : 15222

Today’s song is from film Gharbaar-53. The film was produced by Ratilal Vora for K.Pictures, Bombay.It was directed by Marathi cinema’s famous and successful director Dinkar D. Patil. The cast of the film was Surendra, Manhar Desai, Sulochana Chaterjee, Kuldip Kaur, Shakuntala, Shammi, Baby Naaz, Paro, Kathana, Gope and others. The film’s 8 songs were written by Indivar, Kaif Irfani and D N Madhok. The music was by Vasant Prabhu.

From the beginning of Talkie films, there have been the occasional actors, directors, producers, Lyricists and Music Directors – whose contribution to the Film industry had not been more than just ONE or TWO appearances. There were countless MDs with just one film. Some of the names for your information are, Master Mohan-Pati Bhakti-32, K R Gore-Bhool ka bhog-35, S P Mukherji-Jagran-36, Govindam-Jeevan Jyoti-37, K M Pawar-Paak Daaman-40, Pratap Mukherji- kisi se na kehna-42, Dinkar Rao-Beete din-47, Mukund Masurekar-Didi-48 etc etc. The book ” Dhunon ki yatra” by Pankaj Raag lists hundreds of such names from all decades.

Composer Vasant Prabhu was also one such person who got only one film in Hindi to make songs, Not because he was not capable, but because he was busier in Marathi films and he died at a very young age.

During my early times on this Blog, I had run a series titled, “Less known composers”, 7 years ago. I had discussed songs composed by almost unknown Music Directors like Shridhar Parsekar, Pt. Motiram, Bhushan, Kamal Rajasthani etc. In this series, the last name was Vasant Prabhu’s. 7 years ago, not much information was available on him – not even his real name or dates of birth and death. In last few years, more information and details are available about him. It is always like this. History gets updated with the availability of newer evidences, proofs and documents. So, here is the newly updated information on Vasant Prabhu now….

Vasant Prabhu was born on 19-1-1924. His real name was Vyankatesh Krishnarao Prabhu. His family belonged to Panemangrul, near Mangalore in Karnataka. His father owned many hotels in Bombay. Unfortunately his father lost all 14 hotels and the rich family had to stay in a chawl in Parel.

While still a young boy, he joined the Ganesh melas and used to sing songs on stage. His voice being sweet and the style lovable, he used to get “Once More’ many times. On one such occasion he got 26 times ‘Once More’ and while singing repeatedly his throat was damaged.

While still young,he learnt Kathak dancing and classical music. His elder brother acted in films. He too did child roles. This is when he became Vasant from Vyankatesh. He was a tall,handsome and well built young man.He wanted to become an Actor,so he went to kolhapur, then to Poona and finally landed in Bombay.

Here he did not get any actor’s role,but he joined HMV as a Music composer. Vasant kamerkar who also worked in HMV, helped him to get the job. While here, he started composing Marathi Bhavgeets. Vasant Prabhu, Lata Mangeshkar and Lyricist P.Savalaram ( Savlaram Patil) created many iconic Marathi songs from 1948 to 1965.

His first song was sung by Lata ji,” Ganga yamuna dolyat ubhya kaa…” (गंगा यमुना डोळ्यात उभ्या का) in 1949.This song became so famous overnight that after more than 70 years,even today, it is played on AIR and in almost every Marathi marriage in Maharashtra, by the Band.This is a song of Bidaai, sung so soulfully and the wordings are so meaningful that sensitive women start weeping listening to this song.

While at HMV, Vasant Prabhu also composed some NFS for Lata ji and Geeta Dutt in Hindi. One of Geeta ji’s songs,”Jamuna ke teer kanha aao” is extremely popular with Geeta lovers. ( There is a controversy about Nikhil Ghosh composing this bhajan. The references are divided. It is possible that Vasant Prabhu provided the tune,as he was already in HMV)

Vasant Prabhu’s name is written in Gold for the Marathi Bhavgeets that he composed with Lata and P.Savalaram. The 50’s decade was famous for their songs. In all 110 Bhavgeets were composed by Vasant Prabhu.

Vasant started his film career with Marathi film ‘Ram Ram pavhana’-1950, along with Lata Mangeshkar, choreographing few dances and composing its music too. From 1950 to 1968 he gave music to 22 Marathi films and 5 stage dramas, while doing private albums also.

He was the MD for most Marathi films produced by Lata ji’s ‘Surel Chitra Production company’. In film ” Vaadal” he composed a Thumari in such a wonderful manner that when this film was released in Nagpur the Audience wanted to listen to the Thumari again and again,and threatened to burn the theatre if not done so.Finally that Thumari was shown 5 times that day !

In another film,’Taaraka’, he made actress Sulochana Latkar do an item number in the film.Probably she danced the Item number first and last time in her life.

Singers like Phiroz Dastoor and Talat Mehmood also sang for his Marathi films.

In 1953 he did his only Hindi film “GHARBAAR”-53. There were 8 songs in the films sung by Rajkumari, Lata, Asha,Talat Mehmood and Surendra.

Vasant Prabhu was very honest,punctual,straight forward,disciplined and hot tempered.He never went to anyone to ask for work. Of course work always came to him.He used to compose his tunes lying down in his balcony.

Unfortunately, he got addicted to alcohol in young age and died on 13-10-1967. He was just 43 years old that time.

(Thanks to Madhu Potdar’s biography of Vasant Prabhu-“Manasicha chitrakar” ( मानसीचा चित्रकार ), the Marathi chitrapat Sangeetkar kosh and article by Sulabha Ternikar. )

Similarly, another actress in the cast – Shakuntala was also different than many others of her ilk, i.e. those who started as a child artiste. Right from beginning of the films,child artistes were required to do roles in the films. In the initial stages and also in later periods too, girls used to do Boys’ roles ( but never heard of vice versa ! ). We have the famous examples of Honey and Daisy Irani sisters. Many child stars acted in films till they became older or were not suitable for child roles. One such example was Junior Mehmood. It was quite natural that most of them wanted to continue acting in films as an adult too and many tried to become hero/ heroines. Unfortunately, only some of them could shine as heroes or heroines, while most child stars failed as adult Hero/Heroines.

Successful child artistes are few like Meena Kumari, Madhubala,Nargis, Shashi kapoor, Sachin etc, but you can count them on fingers, whereas the list of unsuccessful child artistes who tried to become adult Hero/Heroines is quite long.

Unlike Baby Tabassum, who could not become a successful adult Heroine in good films, there was another ‘Baby’ who became quite successful as an adult Heroine opposite well known actors under famous banners and left halfway due to her marriage. Her name is BABY SHAKUNTALA. She worked with well known actors like Kishore kumar, Bharat Bhooshan, Karan Dewan, Amarnath, Anant Marathe, Master Bhagwan, Abhi bhattachrya etc. She was also lucky to have worked under ace directors like V.Shantaram, Bimal Roy,Homi Wadia, kishore Sahu, Raja Nene, Gajanan Jahagirdar,Shahid Lateef etc. Born on 17-11-1932, she recently – 4 years ago – died on 18-1-2015 at Kolhapur.

The director of this film Dinkar D Patil was also one of those mentioned above, who visited Hindi films just for one or two films. He directed 2 Hindi films, but he was a very big name in Marathi cinema and a winner of Phalke award also.

Dinkar D. Patil (1915–2005) was a prominent Marathi film director, scriptwriter, and dialogue writer during the Golden Era (1950–1990) of the Marathi Film Industry. He directed, wrote scripts and dialogue for more than 60 Marathi films. He also directed two Hindi Films-Mandir-48 and Gharbar-53. He wrote his famous autobiography titled as Patlache Por (पाटलाचे पोर).

Dinkar Patil was born in a Maratha Patil family on 6 November 1915 in the village of Benadi near Kolhapur. From his childhood he was interested in Marathi stage shows, Marathi plays and cinema. He studied in Kolhapur and completed his B.A.
He started his film career doing assistant job in the Maharashtra Film Company owned by Baburao Painter at Kolhapur, and eventually became an assistant director to Master Vinayak and later transitioned into a film director. He directed and wrote scripts for more than 60 Marathi films.

His films depicting rural life with rural themes, he was considered an authority in both script writing and also directing. He wrote script and dialogue for 62 films and directed 35 films including two Hindi films, Mandir and Gharbar. He received a number of film awards including the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award.

Dinkar Patil introduced Marathi Lavani folk dance in his films, which made his films more popular. He was closely related to Jayaprabha and Shalini Studio in Kolhapur. Also, he made valuable efforts in establishing Marathi Film City – Chitranagari in Kolhapur.

His famous autobiography titled as Patlache Por (पाटलाचे पोर) was published in 1984 in Marathi. More than 10,000 copies were sold during initial years after publication and now it is translated in many other Indian Languages.

He lived in Mumbai for most of his life but returned to Kolhapur with a desire to spend the last years of his life there. Due to attachment to the studios in Kolhapur namely Jayaprabha and Shalini, he reportedly expressed his last desire to immerse his ashes in the premises of the two studios namely Jayaprabha and Shalini Studio in Kolhapur as he was closely attached throughout his life. He died on 23-10- 2005 at the age of 90 in Kolhapur. ((adapted from wiki)

film Gharbaar-53 had 8 songs. Today’s song is the 3rd song to be presented here. By coincidence, all these 3 songs are presented by me, in last 7 years. Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle and Surendra. While Asha was the new struggling voice, Surendra was the fading voice of the earlier generation. After this song, he sang only twice – in film Gawaiya-54 and in film Pati Patni-66. That was the end of his singing.

Surendra ( 11-11-1910 to 11-9-1987) was a very successful actor singer. He was first projected by Sagar Movietone as Bombay’s answer to Calcutta’s Saigal. In his first film, Surendra has actually sung a Parody of Saigal’s song. What a way to begin singing career ! Surendra acted in 73 films. He sang 152 songs in 40 films.

Listen to this song and you will feel the contrast between a rising singer and a fading one.

“Baghdad Ka Chor”(1955) was Produced by Ram Kumar and directed by Shriram for Madan Chitra, Bombay. This “kaalpnik” (fantasy) movie had Chitra, Daljeet, Krishnakumari, Yashodhara Katju, Naaz, Amrit Rana, Ram Kumar, Sheikh etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog. These songs were penned by four lyricists.

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog.

Only the lyricist’s name is mentioned in HFGK for this song. Details of singers are not given.

On listening to the song, it is clear that the song is sung by Asha Bhonsle.

Omar Khayyam Saharanpuri is the lyricist.

Music is composed by B N Bali.

Only audio of this rare song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get a few words right towars the end of the song. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the lanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.
