Missing Films of 1960s – 28
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ever so often, I go searching for a song, an obscure song from an obscure film. I do not know what I will find, because the film is unfamiliar and the songs are unheard. I just dive into the list of songs sitting in my hard drive, with apprehensions, knowing not what will be discovered. And almost always, when I return to surface, I am gasping for breath, not that I was not able breath while in the depths of my collection, but because of wonder and joy on having laid my hands on a fabulous gem of a song that I had not heard before. And going by the awareness factor and availability online, the same may be true for friends and readers who may quite well also be listening to such gems for the first time.

The film cannot get more obscure than this – ‘His Highness’ from 1964. And the music director – well he seems to have appeared like a shooting star and then disappeared, never to be seen again. The name is Bhanu Thakur, and search as I might, I am not able to lay hands on any bit of information about him. Even Pankaj Raag’s book (‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’) simply documents one sentence, stating that he has composed music for one film. Now, it can’t get more obscure than this.

The lyrics are by BD Mishra. Well this name is not totally unfamiliar. Our blog already features 26 songs written by him. However, again, not much is known about him too. BD Misra, or Bhagwat Dutt Misra, has been mostly confined to religious and historical films, and a major part of his work is with music director SN Tripathi. Homi Wadia gave him his first break with SN Tripathi in the Basant Pictures film ‘Shri Rambhakt Hanuman’ (1948). His active career lasted till the mid 1970s, and he has written for 45 films during this period.

Listening to this song, one wonders; here is a songwriter who has been ‘typecast’ for religious films and now we hear such a sweet romantic song written by him. Ways of the industry; all that can be said.

‘His Highness’ is a stunt film directed by Anand Joshi, for the banner – Neeti Films, Bombay. The way the star cast reads, it appears that Helen has played the lead female role in this film. The list of actors for this film includes Helen, Jairaj, Chand Usmani, Arvind, Krishna Kumari, BM Vyas, Maruti, Ratnamala, Chaman Puri, Tuntun, Lakshmi, Rehana, RS Dubey, Kalla and Miraajkar amonst others. There are 5 songs in listed for this film. Two 78 rpm records were released, implying that we can expect at least 4 songs from this film are available. Very interesting to note that all the five songs are sung by Asha Bhosle.

OK, so a debut film, and a debut music director today. And a very delightful hummable song that has been lost under the sands of time for more than five decades. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Naina Waale Ye Kaise Dorey Daale (His Highness) (1964) Singer – Asha BhosleLyrics – BD Mishra, MD – Bhanu Thakur

Lyrics

naina waale
ye kaise dorey daale
dil pe mere tu ne kaisa jaadu kiya
naina waale
ye kaise dorey daale
dil pe mere tu ne kaisa jaadu kiya
naina waale ..ey ..ey ..ey

mausam bahaar ka hai
mere singaar ka hai
chanda ki chhaaon bhi hai
bheegi bheegi raat hai
haathon mein haath le le
thoda qaraar de de
nainon se nain miley
tab to koi baat hai
tere bina kaise mera laage jiyaa. . .
jaadu kiya
naina waale
ye kaise dorey daale
dil pe mere tu ne kaisa jaadu kiya
naina waale ..ey ..ey ..ey

kaisa hai haal mera
kya hai sawaal mera
mujh se na pooch
meri aankhon se pehchaan le
masti mein jhoom lein aa
taaron to choom lein
nazron ki baat
mere kahe bina maan le
jaise maine maange bina dil de diya
jaadu kiya
naina waale
ye kaise dorey daale
dil pe mere tu ne kaisa jaadu kiya
naina waale
ye kaise dorey daale
dil pe mere tu ne kaisa jaadu kiya
naina waale ..ey ..ey ..ey

नैना वाले
ये कैसे डोरे डाले
दिल पे मेरे तूने कैसा जादू किया
नैना वाले
ये कैसे डोरे डाले
दिल पे मेरे तूने कैसा जादू किया
नैना वाले ॰॰ए ॰॰ए ॰॰ए

मौसम बहार का है
मेरे सिंगार का है
चंदा की छाँव भी है
भीगी भीगी रात है
हाथों में हाथ ले ले
थोड़ा करार दे दे
नैनों से नैन मिलें
तब तो कोई बात है
तेरे बिना कैसे मेरा लागे जिया॰॰॰
नैना वाले
ये कैसे डोरे डाले
दिल पे मेरे तूने कैसा जादू किया
नैना वाले ॰॰ए ॰॰ए ॰॰ए

कैसा है हाल मेरा
क्या है सवाल मेरा
मुझ से ना पूछ
मेरी आँखों से पहचान ले
मस्ती में झूम लें आ
तारों को चूम लें
नज़रों की बात
मेरे कहे बिना मान ले
जैसे मैंने मांगे बिना दिल दे दिया
नैना वाले
ये कैसे डोरे डाले
दिल पे मेरे तूने कैसा जादू किया

नैना वाले
ये कैसे डोरे डाले
दिल पे मेरे तूने कैसा जादू किया
नैना वाले ॰॰ए ॰॰ए ॰॰ए

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 36

“सावन की परी चुप चुप है खड़ी

I came across this song for the first time, few weeks ago. It has been sitting in the hard disk for quite some time now, one of a set of songs of Rafi Sb that Bakshish Singh ji gave to me. On some prompting thought in the mind, I just played this song, as I was searching for a song starting with ‘स’, and goodness, just could not believe that this wonderful gem of a song has been sitting away from mainstream listening. Later, when I checked online, this song is posted on YT more than once, implying it is not so rare as I would imagine. Oh but, what a song, what a song.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Wishing that everyone in this Kingdom of Atulsongaday has the power to withstand the early summer that we are experiencing this year, the sun seems to be unusually hot.

As soon as he discovers that I have uploaded a new post, Arvinder ji (I should say, Dear Arvinder ji) is immediately on my case – “where are the songs that I have requested”. And so it transpires this time also. As soon as he became aware of my previous post (of Tuesday early morning), I have been getting calls and messages of all types reminding me of his list of requests for songs that are very dear, but are not easily available at this time. We had a small get together of our group yesterday afternoon. Arvinder ji was also present. And I don’t need to add much more to say how he urged me to post the songs he has requested.

It’s been a while since my last post here.  And to be absolutely honest, I haven’t even been active on the blog recently.

This is for a variety of reasons, none of which is, thankfully, any cause of worry. I go into this shell from time to time. I hope Atul, and my other friends here, know me long enough now to not mind my absence. It is nothing to do with the blog or with them, it is just me and my bizarre-ness. Anyway, it doesn’t matter – what matters is that I’m back here today.

But why today? What’s so special about today? Well, today is special, not just for one, but for two reasons. Firstly, the 8th of March is celebrated worldwide as International Women’s Day. Secondly, it also happens to be the birthday of Sahir Ludhianvi, one of our most celebrated poets and lyricists.  And most people who know me on this blog know what a special place Sahir has in my heart.  I have often posted his songs here, especially on his birth and death anniversaries. I feel that’s the least I can do for him.

Today, the 8th of March, is a very special day for some of us.

No, it’s not because it is International Women’s Day. Well, that too, but also because it is the birthday of somebody associated with the Hindi film industry who is very close to us.

Yes, I’m talking about Sahir Ludhianvi. Sahir Sb would have been 96 today had he been alive.

The byline in one of the news programs on the 6th evening was – “फिल्मों का एक युग, मिनटों में सिमट गया” (“filmon ka ek yug, minton mein simat gaya”) (an entire era of (Hindi) filmdom, faded away in a matter of minutes). A completely unexpected departure happened earlier in the day. Very much in the saddle, and very much in the busy prime of his career, Om Puri passed away suddenly. The amount of intensity he packed into his characters, and in his dialogue delivery, it seemed he was going to last forever on the screen. Sixty six years they say. Goodness, it just seems like yesterday that Bhikhu picked up that axe used to cut wood at a cremation ground, and brutally attacked his own sister.

तुम ना जाने किस जहां में खो गए॰॰॰

एक शायर का नज़रिया है॰ यूं तो हमें मालूम है के ज़िंदगी का दिया एक दिन बुझ जाना है॰ मगर फिर भी, जब किसी चहेते का साथ छूटता है, तो दिल का ग़म इन्हीं लफ्जों में ढलता है॰॰॰  तुम ना जाने किस जहां में खो गए॰॰॰

[A poet’s perspective it is. We are all aware that the life breath will cease one day. But still, when a dear one departs, the sadness in the heart expresses itself in these very words. . . “Tum Na Jaane Kis Jahaan Mein Kho Gaye”].

The words are from the pen of Sahir – the poet extraordinaire, whose poetry has touched every strand in the fabric of life, every passion, every sentiment of the human psyche. A poet who has given us near about seven hundred film songs, that express a multitude of emotions coloring the canvas of life.

Remembering Sahir Sb, on the anniversary of his passing away today (25th Oct, 1980).
