Dada Burman – the senior doyen of the music directors of Indian cinema. A music director who, unlike many other music dirrctors,  maintained  consistency in his work all through his career. His fans, critics and observers of music, journalists and industry biggies – whatever they may say about his work, all agree that Sachin Da has consistently maintained a very high quality and a very high standard of his music direction work, across all his films.

Remembering SD Burman on the anniversary of his passing away – 31st October, 1975, i.e. 47 years ago.

He started his career as a singer with the Calcutta Radio Station in the late 1920s. There are some other interesting trivia about his early career which are probably not well known. That he made his debut as a singer in the New Theatres production ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1933), but the songs recorded by him were not used. They were rercorded in the voice of Pahadi Sanyal. Then in 1934, he appeared on screen in the film ‘Selima’, in which is played a role of a singer. In 1935, he made another similar on screen appearance in the Bangla film ‘Birodhi’. The same year he also sang in another Bangla film – ‘Sanjher Pidim.

Before entering the cinema world as a music director, he worked for the Bangla theatre in Calcutta, and composed music for famous plays such as ‘Sati Tirath’ and ‘Janani’. In Bangla cinema, his first film as a music director was ‘Sudurer Priye’ in 1935. In the next decade, from 1935 to 1945, he composed music for 18 Bangla films. In 1945, he moved to Bombay as the invitation of Sashadhar Mukherjee of Filmistan. In 1946, Filmistan released two films with his music – ‘Shikari’ and ‘Eight Days’. Big time success came his way the subsequent year when ‘Do Bhai’ (1947) was released. The iconic song “Mera Sundar Sapna Beet Gaya” in the voice of Geeta Dutt became and all time great hit. And the rest, as they say, is history.

In a career that spans four decades, Sahin Da has composed music for about 110 films – both Hindi and Bangla.

Almost five decades have gone by since he bid farewell to this life. And it seems that we have not heard all of his music; that there are still more of his creations to be explored and enjoyed. As I was searching today for a song to go with this post, I stumbled upon this wonderful melody from thr 1954 film ‘Radha Krishna’. A song in the voice of Asha Bhosle, this is an exquisite piece of melody and poetry that is such a pleasing listen. After a long time I use the phrase ‘love at first listen’, as I started to hear this song for the first time, earlier in the day today.

The lyrics are wonderful poetry by Narendra Sharma. The words tell of an expected tryst between the Eternal Lovers – Radha and Krishna. The poet writes such exquisite lines – “. . .ghir ghir aayi milan yaamini, kabhi na hogi bhor. . .”. The sound of chorus is so beautifully used in this composition.

A must listen song – I am sure you will fall in love with.

Song – Neel Gagan Mein Maadal Baaje (Radha Krishna) (1954) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Narendra Sharma, MD – SD Burman

Blog Day :

Greetings and Happy Birthday wishes to Usha Khanna ji.

Born this day in 1941, she is all of 81 years old today. With a reign lasting from 1959 to 2003, she may be the most prolific and accomplished lady music director in the Hindi film industry. In the early decades of Hindi cinema, we have been earlier introduced to lady music directors viz., Bibbo, Jaddan Bai and Saraswati Rane. Then after a gap of maybe a decade, the teenaged Usha Khanna (she was 18 years when ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ was released in 1959) made her debut.

And the audience and the industry took notice of this new and attractive sound of music. After a slow beginning, she went on to become one of the mainline music directors in the industry. Over the period of about four and a half decade, she has composed music for more than 160 films. Her last film was released on 2003 – ‘Dil To Pardesi Hai’. We do not see more films from her after this, although technically she has not formally announced her retirement from an active career.

The song that I bring up today is from the 1964 film ‘Awaara Baadal’. This is a song performed on screen by Helen. And true to the spirit of this fabulous danseuse, the composition is so lilting and magical. On screen we see a dance being  performed by Helen and a group of supporting dancers. The performance is being viewed by Niranjan Sharma.

The lyrics of the song have been penned by Javed Anwar and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

A quick reminder for the readers, regarding the lyricist. Javed Anwar is a pseudonym for a team of two songwriters working together. Javed is the name that is used by Manohar Khanna, who is the father of Usha Khanna in real life. And Anwar is the pen name of the second songwriter – Raheel Gorakhpuri.

Wishing Usha ji for good health and many more such celebrations to come.

I invite you to listen to this foot tapping melody that is so apt for a Helen dance song.

Song – Dil To Niraala Hi Sharaabi Hai (Awaara Baadal) (1964) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Javed Anwar, MD – Usha Khanna

Blog Day :

5104 Post No. : 17043

This Week, That Year – 10
———————————–
03Jul – 09Jul, 2012

OK so, another week. Just made it in time this time. 🙂

This thing about the ten year recalls and reminiscences, it surely brings up some very interesting  experiences. And I believe, the one connected with this week, will be one of the most interesting. Before getting into the numbers game, let me share this first.

Ten years back, as I was checking out and reviewing the activities on the blog for the seven day period – 3rd July to 9th July, 2012, I came across this very interesting exchange in the comments section of the one of posts of that week. It happened on the 8th of July. That day, as many as 6 posts were published. And the blog achieved a major milestone. The sixth song that got posted on that day is “Ye Wohi Geet Hai Jisko Maine”, in the voice of Kishore Kumar. The film is ‘Maan Jaaiye’ from 1972. The song is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and the music is by Jaidev. With this post and song, the blog reached the 6200th milestone.

Writing on the occasion of completing 62 centuries, Atul ji had pointed out that the latest century (from 6101 to 6200) was achieved in 20 days. He also wrote that it was slower than the fastest that the blog had covered till then – which was sixteen days. But also that it was faster than the immediate preceding century (6001 to 6100) which had been accomplished in 27 days. The rest of the article with the post also makes a very interesting reading.

In the comments section, there is an exchange between Atul ji and myself, which is oh so pertinent for this 10 year recall of our own history. I reproduce the comments here verbatim, and I am sure you will see the immediate connection. I had written,

Oh wow,
another century already.

Atul ji,

Sometimes I do get caught unawares. 🙂

Congratulations – a wonder is unfolding, as we go on day by day, adding more to this wonderful collection. Mark my words, dear Atul ji and all other dear friends on this blog. Seven to ten years down the road, we will be viewing this as our own history, and will wonder . . . ‘Oh, did we really came up this path.’

Congratulations again, to ALL.

Rgds
Sudhir

To my observation, Atul ji had responded as follows,

Thanks.

You are right. If we can continue for ten years at this rate, then the collection of songs here, alongwith the nuggets of valuable informations being gathered will become a priceless source of reference for music lovers.

In the context of where we were at that time, this exchange would have been regarded as wishful thinking. We were about 4 years into this journey as of that date. Our view into the future was more an apprehension rather than an educated expression of planning and resolve. Reading this exchange from 10 years ago, and in the context of where we are today with this journey, we can very aptly term this as visionary. Ha. Sure. Was it really so visionary at that juncture? Of course we did not know. It was an instinctive expression of what-if-then kind of a thought in our minds.

But then reading these words after ten years, it really gives such an exhilarating feeling of triumph and realization – yes, we did make it, and we did make it in great style, with continued strength and sustained consistency for all to see. And more than just a wonder – we HAVE a blog that surely is – “a priceless source of reference for music lovers“.

In the post Atul ji had specifically pointed out that although the pace on the blog may not be chugging along as fast as he would like to (at that time), but that he was very happy with the consistency of effort and the great feeling of continued success that was brought in by the fact that our onward progression continued to bring up milestone after milestone on the blog. Yes, ‘exhilarating’ surely is the right word.

The pace has surely slowed down significantly. But the spirit of continuity and forward progress has never faltered. In four years we had breached the 6200th mark. In the ten years since, we have added almost another eleven thousand posts, another eleven thousand songs, which just wishful thinking back then. As I have written earlier also, we have run out of epithets and qualifiers for this ongoing wonderful journey of music.

And it continues. . . 😀

I return to the numbers game and the review of the postings from that week. The following table contains the day by day information of the posts from that week.

As the table shows, a total of 40 songs were posted in that week, at a daily average of about 5.7 songs per day. Wow. What a powerhouse of energy it has been.

Another week of no repeats – meaning that 40 films got showcased that week. Of these, nine films had made their debut that week. And yes, during that week, one film was Yippeee’d. That is the 1959 film ‘Kavi Kaalidas’, which got Yippeee’d on 5th July of 2012. Since that week, during the past 10 years, another 21 of the 40 films that were represented, have been Yippeee’d.

About the decade preferences, here is the break up

1930s  –  (none)
1940s  –  6
1950s  –  16
1960s  –  10
1970s  –  6
1980s  –  2

As always, the distribution is obviously weighed down in the decades of 50s and 60s.

Of the 40 films from that week, 19 films still continue to have ‘Pending’ status. Of these 19 ‘Pending’ films, for 6 of them the Geet Kosh indicates that maybe all song were not released as gramophone records. We may not see a complete Yippeee status for these films

The song presented today is from the 1960 film ‘Duniya Jhukti Hai’. The songs of this film are from the pen of Rajendra Krishan and music is from the mind of Hemant Kumar. Just to remind readers – this is the film that contains the iconic popular song “Phoolon Se Dosti Hai Kaanton Se Yaari Hai”. This song was posted during the week under review – on 3rd July, 2012. Another very famous and popular song of this film is “Gumsum Sa Ye Jahaan, Ye Raat Ye Hawa”.

Our dear Arun ji has provided the following summary of this film,

DUNIYA JHUKTI HAI (1960) was a Wadia Movietone film, which was a surprise. Wadia Movietone was known only to make stunt or costume films of B grade. This was a social film trying to give a message that Evil work never pays.

Anyway, the producer/director was JBH Wadia himself and the music was by Hemant Kumar, ably assisted by Rizbert, his loyal companion of many movies. This Rizbert was from Goa and was an expert like other Goanese in film industry, in making notation based tunes.

One more interesting point about this film was that there were 3 Agha’s in this film. One was actor Agha Jan, the other was cinematographer Agha Hasham and the third was Agha Jani Kasmiri who wrote the story, screenplay and dialogues of the film.

Mohan is an honest to the core young man, in love with a girl. The girl ditches him by marrying some rich man. Mohan is frustrated and he becomes a gunda, joins a gang of a Boss whom no one has seen. He also changes his name to Bankelal. (Sunil Dutt).

One day this Banke saves a child Munna (Daisy Irani) from drowning and they become close friends as Munna has no father. Munna’s mother Laxmi (Shyama) does not approve this and warns Munna to keep away from Banke, as he is a gunda.

Munna falls ill and Banke visits him, promising him to reform and become a good man. He goes and surrenders to the police, but police want him to help them capture the Boss. The Boss is already looking for Banke as he does not want to lose him. He kidnaps Munna to blackmail Banke to return to his fold. There is a fight and when Banke is about to kill the Boss (BM Vyas), Laxmi reveals that Boss is Munna’s father. Boss runs away but is killed by the police.

Banke marries Laxmi and they live happily with Munna.

The song is a mujra song, which is performed on screen by Kumkum. The quality of the video is not great, and it is difficult to identify the other performers present in the scene. Dear Prakash ji has helped to identify the dancer Kumkum and two other performers present in this clip – Wasti and Kesar.

A wonderfully crafted song that has been performed equally well by Kumkum. A great reminder, and a great recall – where we were ten years ago, and what were our hopes and aspirations.

The lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji. Listen to this less heard, but a really beautiful melody.

Great memories.

हर रात गिन गिन तारे
ए इश्क़ तेरे हाथों
हम जान से भी हारे
बेगाने हुए अपने सारे
लागि तुमसे॰॰ए
लागि तुमसे नजरिया लागि
नजरिया लागि
साँवरिया लागी रे
दम भर को पड़त नहीं चैना
लागे क्या नैना
के नींदिया भागी रे
लागि तुमसे॰॰ए॰॰ए

मत पूछ ज़िंदगी में
ये प्यार क्या क्या लाया
मत पूछ ज़िंदगी में
ये प्यार क्या क्या लाया
आँखों में अश्क आए
ग़म दिल में मुस्कुराया
ये इश्क़ मगर कब घबराया
लागि तुमसे॰॰ए
लागि तुमसे नजरिया लागि
नजरिया लागि
साँवरिया लागी रे
दम भर को पड़त नहीं चैना
लागे क्या नैना
के नींदिया भागी रे
लागि तुमसे॰॰ए॰॰ए

Today’s song is from an obscure film – ‘Vishwamitra’ (1952). I am sure that 99.9% readers must not have even heard of this film ever. Then why did I select a song from this film to discuss? There is a strong reason for it. When I first saw this film’s name in HFGK a few days ago, I noticed the name of the director and the music director and honestly, I was thrilled ! The director was Kala Maharshi Baburao Painter, one of the pioneers of Indian films- both silent as well as talkie. He was also the mentor of many film luminaries who shone later in their lives. All of them had learnt the ABCD of film making at the feet of Baburao Painter. Great directors like V Shantaram and Master Vinayak were the prominent learners under him.Any industry, to develop into a profitable one, requires hard work by the pioneers. This applies totally to the Hindi Film Industry in India. The original initiators of the film industry were not any rich people, but the industry took the seeds from ordinary, middle class people.They had no riches, but their zeal, dedication, ambition and desire to achieve goals overtook their poverty and they toiled and moiled to raise the required finance for their projects. We all know about  the great Dadasaheb Phalke, who staked everything he owned to achieve his goals and became a name to remember forever. In this endeavor, he was not alone. There was one more person from Kolhapur, who took Phalke’s dream much ahead from silent to talkie films. His name is taken today with awe and respect by film historians. He was Baburao Painter.Kala Maharshi Baburao Painter (real name Baburao Krishnarao Mestri) was born on 3rd June 1890 at Kolhapur. The success of Dadasaheb Phalke in making films in India inspired Baburao and his cousin brother Anandrao immensely. They too wanted to make films, but it was not possible in Kolhapur. Phalke had gone to England to learn film making and had brought machinery from England. This was beyond the reach of these poor young men.

Anandrao found that a second hand projector was for sale in Null Bazar in Bombay. Crazily, he decided to change the projector into a film camera, by making some structural changes. They sold the family’s gold ornaments and bought the projector. To start with and to get further finance they used it to show films in theaters. They even showed some Hollywood films here. After several attempts, Anandrao was successful in converting the projector into a film camera. Baburao was also with him in this. Unfortunately, Anandrao died suddenly giving a setback to the project.

Baburao now needed finance to go ahead. Luckily a famous classical singer of those days, Tanibai Kagalkar – wife of Bapusaheb Kagalkar and the sister of Vinayakrao Ghorpade (who was the father of child actress and singer Vasanti), invested Rs. 15,000 – an astronomical figure for those times. Baburao established Maharashtra Film Company in Kolhapur and started preparations for making his film ‘Sairandhri’, released in 1919. The cast of this film included 2 women, Gulab Bai aka Kamla Devi and Anusuya Bai aka Susheela Devi. These women were promptly thrown out of their homes and society. They remained with the company and even cooked and washed clothes of artistes, besides acting in the films other times. Gulab Bai aka Kamla Devi later posed for the symbol of Prabhat Film company- playing the tootari with bent body. She married Fattelal, one of the directors of Prabhat Films.

‘Sairandhri’ was a tremendous success. Enthused Baburao Painter made another 15 films. Lokmanya Tilak was so impressed with Baburao’s dedication, he awarded him the title of ‘Cinema Kesari’. Baburao Pendharkar was the General Manager of the company, mainly because he could speak fluent English with customers. Others were V Shantaram, Dhaiber, Damle and Fattelal as his assistants in different departments. Sarpotdar, NH Apte and Vashikar were the scriptwriters and Prof NS Phadke, the novelist, wrote film titles. In the 1920 second half, there was a big fire in the company and all films were burnt.

Baburao Painter started afresh in 1921. He made many mythological and historical films. Baburao was the first to make a social film, ‘Savkari Pash’ on the issue of exploitation of  poor farmers by money lenders in the villages. In 1928, a foreign trained film director was appointed from Bombay – Moti B Gidwani, on a fat salary. (He was later to direct the film ‘Khazanchi’ (1941) in Lahore). This caused unrest in the company and resulted in Shantaram, Dhaiber, Damle and Fattelal leaving the company. They established Prabhat Film Company. In 1930, Baburao also left the Maharashtra Film company. When talkie films started he made 7 talkie films, including 2 Hindi films – ‘Pratibha’ (1937) and ‘Matwala Shaayar Ramjoshi’ (1947) along with Shantaram. He then left films and concentrated on his painting and sculpture. In the year 1952, he was forced by his old friend BG Pawar to come to Bombay and direct his film ‘Vishwamitra’. However, most of the  shooting was done in Kolhapur itself. Baburao Painter died on 16-1-1954 at Kolhapur.

Baburao’s contribution to Indian film industry-

  1. He was the first to use colored screens and clothes for realistic effect.
  2. Indoor filming with artificial lighting.
  3. Fade out and fade in techniques
  4. Outdoor shootings; Debaki Bose, in his visit to the studio, was amazed to see Baburao’s working techniques.
  5. Making sketches of scenes and costumes before shooting.
  6. Advertising posters. Film booklets with film story and pictures.

All assistants of Baburao Painter became big people. He was simply a God sent gift to the Hindi film industry.

Another surprising name was that of the Music Director- B Laxman aka Laxman Berlekar. When the talkie films started, it created tremendous curiosity among not only the audience but also those who loved acting, singing and composing music. Even the great names in these fields had a desire to act, to sing or to compose music for the films. Actors who were legends on the stage dramas like Master Nissar or Bal Gandharva, professional singers like Manik Varma, musicians like Pt Ravi Shankar, and poets like Kazi Nazrul Islam (now the national poet of Bangladesh) did their bits in few films. Most of these professionals contributed in just one or two films and then disappeared from the film line.

Some of the ‘one/two films’ music composers are Imam Baksh – ‘Mr and Mrs Bombay’ (1936), Shankar Rao Khatu – ‘Village Girl’ (1936), Master Ratnakant – ‘Rangbhoomi’ (1935), Pt Hansraj – ‘Mastana Mashooq’ (1936), Harish Bharadwaj – ‘Ahinsa Path’ (1949), Dattaram Gadekar – ‘Vikram Shashikala’ (1949), Chetumal – ‘Bombay’ (1949), Madhukar Golwalkar – ‘Main Abla Nahin Hoon’ (1950), Prafulla Chaudhari – ‘Swayamsidha’ (1949), Madhukar Acharya – ‘Kinaara’ (1949), Kazi Nazrul Islam – ‘Chauranghee’ (1942) etc.

B Laxman was also one such one film wonder in Hindi, though he had been a well known name in Marathi films and stage dramas. Berlekar was born in 1920 at Kolhapur. He loved music from his childhood. He first learnt playing harmonium and then studied in Gandharva Mahavidyalaya. Famous singer Wamanrao Padhye was his teacher.

In those days Ganesh Melas were popular in Maharashtra. Berlekar and Sudhir Phadke acted and sang in mela dramas. Both worked in Shrikrishna Sangeet Mela of Kolhapur. Laxman was very handsome and had a good personality. He acted as a child Prahlad in Hindi film ‘Bhakta Prahlad’ (1934) made by Saraswati Cinetone of Poona. Berlekar sang Hindi ghazals very well he gave music to 7 Marathi films and 1 Kannada film. ‘Vishwamitra’ was the only Hindi film he did. He used different pseudo-names like B Laxman, Dinkar Laxman and LB Sarang (saarang was his favourite Raag).

[Author’s Note: Thanks to ‘मराठी चित्रपट संगीतकार कोष’ for this information.]

Film ‘Vishwamitra’ was made by producer Baswant Pawar under the banner of his own Baswant Films, Bombay. It was directed by Baburao Painter and music was by B Laxman. All the 6 songs and the film story was written by Manohar Khanna (father of MD Usha Khanna). The cast was DK Sapru, Sheela Nayak, Vivek, Madhav Kale, Apte and many others. Today’s song is the second song of this film here.

We are in the fag-end of the month of June of this year 2022. As I had mentioned earlier that this month is a special for many of us due to the many anniversaries falling in this month i.e., anniversaries of relatives, friends and as well as anniversaries of many artists too. Today we celebrate birth anniversary of our beloved music genius Rahul Dev Burman, and one post has already been posted on the blog remembering Pancham.

Today 27th June, 2022 is also the seventy-second birth anniversary of singer Nitin Mukesh (born on 27th June, 1950). We wish him a very happy birthday today and also wish him a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

On this occasion I am once again going back to the songs from the movie ‘Santosh’ (1989). There is one duet sung by Nitin Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle in this movie which is yet to be posted on the blog. This song is lying ready with us since long and I take this opportunity to present it today here on the blog.

‘Santosh’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. It has Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others. Story of ‘Santosh’ is written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik).

This movie has seven songs written by Santosh Anand (six songs) and Manoj Kumar (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. I have earlier mentioned the details of the songs of this movie in my previous posts, so I am not going to repeat them again here.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Hema Malini. This song is a nice duet to watch and listen.

Let us enjoy this beautiful song now …

Bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon

Song – Bataao Tumhen Pyaar Kaise Karoon (Santosh) (1989) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Nitin Mukesh, Lyrics – Santosh Anand, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
bina bole hothon ka hilna hai kya
mujhe inka matlab to samjhaaiye
khayaalon mein phoolon ka khilna hai kya
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
mujhe ghut ke marne ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe ae …

bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin
main jaisa bhi hoon
haan
jaisa bhi hoon
saamne hoon khadaa aa
mujhe kuchh chhupaane ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin

ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
bina bole hothon ka hilna hai kya
mujhe inka matlab to samjhaaiye
khayaalon mein phoolon ka khilna hai kya
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
mujhe ghut ke marne ki aadat nahin

mujhe itni fursat mili hai kahaan
mujhe itni fursat mili hai kahaan
jo padhta tumhaare nayan ki ghazal
mujhe aaj lagta hai sach maan lo
ye chehra nahin hai gulaabi kamal 
ye dil kaise chori kiya jaayega
ye dil kaise chori kiya jaayega
mujhe dil churaane ki aadat nahin

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

mujhe kuchh huaa hai pataa hai tumhe
badi nam hawaa hai pataa hai tumhe
badan jal rahaa hai ragon mein magar
lahu jam gaya hai pataa hai tumhe*
lo sar jhuk gaya hai tumhe kya khabar
lo sar jhuk gaya hai tumhe kya khabar
mujhe sar jhukaane ki aadat nahin
main jaisa bhi hoon
haan
jaisa bhi hoon
saamne hoon khadaa aa
mujhe kuchh chhupaane ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin

Memories of visit to London in September 2021

This post has been a long time in arriving actually.  We went to UK not as tourist, but to see family, mainly the daughter of the family and the new grand-daughter.  We came back to Mumbai in October’21.  Lot of water has flown down the bridge since then and the grand daughter is growing by leaps and bounds since we were with her, by the grace of Almighty.

Upon returning, I found myself under pressure to find a song good enough, to write a post covering the visit.  I looked, searched and watched, found many songs, newer ones mainly filmed in the UK, and some also showing locations of the London city.  It has been a favorite location for Hindi film picturization of film makers since the 60’s, i.e. when the trend of filming on location really started in the industry. Unfortunately, I was less than satisfied with the newer songs, and characteristically, was reluctant to post a new song, which had song/dance, band/bajaa/baraat routine. The songs were quite good in their own genre, I might yet post at least one of them.

And all this while, Avinash ji has been doing a series of the songs of 70’s decade and his posts appear regularly. Now Avinash ji has also acquired a new degree, I have deduced from the Peevisie’s Mom’s post.  Congratulations to the happy parents and best wishes for the daughter and the son-in-law.

One lucky day, while browsing the YouTube, I found this Rafi-Asha duet from the film ‘Professor Pyarelal’ (1981).  It is a happy sounding romantic song and a much heard on the radio, which makes it a dear familiar friend, in my opinion.  The song is filmed in London, mostly around the city center area, around Thames River, Westminster Abbey, the London Clock Tower etc.  The famous London Tower Bridge is also visible in all its centuries old splendor.

Centuries old splendor is the term I was looking for to describe the architectural beauty of London city and its many monuments.  It is evident that it is one of the oldest surviving cities of the world.  And it has managed to maintain its beauty and its instinct for survival, adaptability to the modern times and modern architectural and infrastructure requirements can only be applauded and wondered at.

My search for a suitable song for this post ended the day I saw this song on YouTube.  But the actual writing kept getting deferred.  I thought this was a late 70’s song, and was apprehensive that Avinash ji or someone else may post this song and I will lose the opportunity to write this post.  Now I find that this movie is from 1981.  But the songs were released and popular for some years before the movie eventually released after production delays.

Getting back to the brief about our visit. As soon as we arrived in UK, various scheduling and planning for visits to different places were underway.  My uncle, our host, insisted upon a visit to London city.  The planning for the London city was so short, due to the leave constraints of my son-in-law, that I was on the verge of postponing it to the next visit.  But the window of opportunity, and my son’s contention that everybody is going to ask, “hey you went to England and didn’t see London!”, decided in favor of the visit, so it happened.

London and some other landmark locations of England are a part of the consciousness. Just as we exist, these buildings – man made creations – also exist, and are famous for the events, known as historical turning points. Unlike other major cities of the modern world, London has seen wars too and has been destroyed and built again many times over, from what ever history I have read about it. England, on the whole has had a most violent history, in the medieval and pre-medieval eras. The fault lines between the Welsh, Scots, Irish and Brits, is evident even today in the various ruins and forts, and castles.  But they did learn their lesson that divided they fall, decided to unite at some given point in history to conquer the world.  I think it was the threat of the Romans that eventually united the British Isles. The glue could only have been an ideology of self-interest, binding the factions despite bitter animosity and gruesome wars behind them. Maybe the Protestant church had something to do with it, so Britain rose to great heights as a dominant civilization in the world and they were motivated enough to write and re-write the worlds history, literally and figuratively.  British historians are also a notorious breed.  Their language, is the dominant language in the world for centuries now.  The rise of the British Empire took centuries to happen, where as the fall was swift in the 19th and 20th century.  But the cultural and linguistic dominance continues to remain on top now, and for the foreseeable future too in the 21st century.  Willingness to adapt to other cultures and language habits is said to be a major factor in the success of the English language.   Historically speaking, the Roman empire was greater and more successful in the world, before the new found land of Americas.  But the impact is all but lost in today’s world.  The geopolitical scenario keeps changing with time and passing of centuries. These changes happen faster now in a matter of decades.  There are catalysts recognizable and visible to these power shifts. This is a very heavy and deep topic, so better to leave it here.

Yes, I had to chalk out a fool proof plan and schedule, wherein a few places I wanted to visit, were not missed.  Lords cricket ground and Thames River cruise were two things I was not willing to miss.  So we worked around this, to do the Lords tour, city ride in the red bus, short cruise of Thames river, Madame Tussaud’s, Harrods, a long walk inside the Hyde Park, especially where equestrian clubs are situated, visit to Science Museum and Natural History Museum (free entry), Bakers Street and Sherlock Holmes Museum, etc.  We gave a miss to Tower of London and Buckingham Palace tours, as they were more time consuming and also expensive. The London Eye is also a popular choice, which we could not take.  Other tourist locations in UK also have a giant wheel rides, as an attraction. The Giant wheel is a common feature in other places, like Dubai, Sydney, etc. I am wondering why we don’t have a thing like this in Mumbai.

We were based in Manchester, so could visit the nearby areas too like Lake District, North Wales, Blackpool, Lancaster, Chester, Preston etc. We passed through Oxford too on our way back from London. When we had arrived in UK, everyone told us the weather is good for only 2-3 days, so enjoy as much as you can, as it is really foul from September onward.  But luckily the weather held for the entire period of our stay, and we had rains to enjoy only in North Wales and for an hour or two in London, while we were riding the red bus and we had to cross the Bridge near Westminster on foot as we missed the stop for the Westminster Pier.  A part of the song I am presenting is filmed on the same bridge, where Zeenat Aman is standing in the middle of the road and crosses to join Dharmendra on the curb. The famous Tower Bridge is now painted in azure blue. I find that the Bridge has been painted blue since 1977, but in the song, it is not looking blue, so the song was filmed before 1977, it would seem.

Some trivia about the film:

This film took so long to complete – five years – and its plot was so convoluted that after director Brij had finished shooting it, nobody could figure out how to put the film together. The producers had then called in Hrishikesh Mukherjee to edit and salvage the film. He was credited prominently in the film’s posters and publicity material.

Astonishingly, no part of the city which is showcased as the beautiful attractions, looks old or dilapidated. All of them look freshly painted and well maintained, except for the bridges on the Thames River and the Westminster Abbey, which is the family church of the British Royals. London is best enjoyed on foot, I was told and I agree. After covering a few miles on foot, in and around Exhibition Street, Marylebone, Kensington, Hyde Park, we can be surprised and find the unexpected. In fact, the most parts of UK are best enjoyed on foot, which is the common consensus. Walking trails are taken as granted in different parts of UK.

I am told that the whole of UK is connected through rivers and canals and one can go from anywhere to anywhere on a boat. I was mentally prepared to be impressed by all that I was going to see in this visit, but was more than impressed and wish to do more trips which include visits to the remaining places in England, Scotland and Wales.

We took a pre-booked guided tour of the Lord’s cricket ground at the MCC.  Seeing the many Indian in the group taking the tour, the guide asked us “Where is Sachin Tendulkar’s home?”.  The common answer was the obvious – Mumbai.  But the guide insisted that “No. Sachin’s home is right here in Marylebone.” No surprises there too, for the evidence is everywhere in London especially, that who can afford to, would prefer to stay in London. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar was here in Mumbai in February 2022, as we all saw him attending the funeral of Lata Mangeshkar.  Incidentally, I could not find Sachin Tendulkar’s name in the list of Test centurions at the Lords. Extensive lists are put up inside the Pavilion, of all centurions and also 5+ wicket takers in an innings.  The guide was in full form and regaled us with a story about the ‘death row’ in the viewers gallery or members gallery.  There are two such galleries, one for the home team and one for the away team. As both India and West Indies are ‘away teams’, I guess the away team gallery was the one, where Kapil Dev stood with the Prudential Cup trophy after his team’s victory in 1983 World Cup. The original Prudential Cup is still there in the small Museum for memorabilia, related to the MCC.

I have read and heard at various places, that London was the favourite place in the world for Rafi Sahab also. He is said to have been fond of the city, as his sons are settled there.

I can go on remembering things and my impressions of the visit, but the post is got to end somewhere. The song being presented in this post is filmed in London on Dharmendra and Zeenat Aman. Rafi Sahab and Asha Bhonsle are giving playback to them in the song written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This duet is typical of the Kalyanji-Anandji style of duet composition, sounding very similar to the Rafi-Asha duet from ‘Qurbani’. We the radio fans, listened to the song in late 70’s, loved and liked it, but had all but forgotten it. Even the links on YouTube are few, with only one video available.

Today 8th March, 2022 is the 101st birth anniversary of poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi (08.03.1921 – 25.10.1980).

As per statistics available he has written around 717 to 730 songs in Hindi Films. On our blog we have so far covered 704 songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi. Around six to eight songs from the remaining songs seems to be difficult to find or they may not be available at all. Following is the details of movies and the number of songs from these movies yet to be posted on the blog.

TOTAL 27

Today I present here a song from the movie ‘Nanha Farishta’ (1969). ‘Nanha Farishta’ was directed by T Prakash Rao for Vijaya International, Madras. It was produced by B Nagi Reddi and Chakrapani. This movie was presented by B Nagi Reddi.

The star cast of the movie lists Pran, Ajit, Anwar Hussain, Padmini, Balraj Sahni and Baby Rani, supported by Suresh, Mukri, Raj Mehra, Sundar, Maruti, Prem Kumar and Johnny Walker.

Story of this movie was written by Thuraiyoor K Moorthy, and dialogues were written by Inder Raj Anand. Editing of this movie was done by BS Glaad.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and music composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

The playback singers for this movie are Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Manhar. [Author’s Note: The titles of the movie also mentioned the name of S Balbir in the list of playback singers, however HFGK has not mentioned Balbir’s name for any song of this movie.]

HFGK mentions the following four songs from this movie.

Song  Posted On
 O Natkhat Nanhi Laadli Tujhe Dekhen  26.12.2020
 Chandaa Kaahe Ka Tera Maama  08.03.2021
 O Re O, Sharaabi Tujhme Ek Kharaabi  Being discussed today
 Bachche Mein Hai Bhagwaan  14.11.2014

Kalyanji-Anandji have worked with Sahir Ludhianvi in two movies, as per following details.

Songs by Sahir (per – The People’s Poet)
Nanha Farishta 1969 Kalyanji-Anandji 3 4 4
Shankar Shambhu 1976 Kalyanji-Anandji 5 5 5

From the above table we can see that only one song from the movide ‘Nanha Farishta’ which is also the last song of ‘Sahir – KA’ association remains to be posted on the blog. This is also the final song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and on-screen Padmini is lip-syncing for Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Also seen in the picturization of the song are Pran, Ajit, and Anwar Hussain.

The song happens when the three criminals Pran, Ajit and Anwar Hussain got drunk and request Gauri (Padmini) to sing a song for them. Gauri is the caretaker of the little girl Baby (Baby Rani) whom the three have abducted after killing her father. Later the three criminals develop a soft corner for the baby girl and kidnapped her caretaker Gauri as well when the little girl fall sick.

Gauri has a plan for the criminals and that is why she readily agrees to sing and dance for the drunken criminals. But that is not to be disclosed here and that is something we have to leave intact for those who are interested in watching this movie. I have also not watched this movie and the above storyline in short is from what I got to read on internet.

With this post, the film ‘Nanha Farishta’ (1969) now joins the list of Yippeee’d movies on the blog.

Let us listen to the today’s song now.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 19#
——————————————

Today’s movie from the list of missing movies of 1972 on the blog is ‘Ustaad Meraa Naam’.

‘Ustaad Meraa Naam’ was a stunt movie.  I had never heard the name of this movie or its’ songs earlier and it is only because of HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) that I got to know about this movie and its songs. This movie seems to be an obscure movie as none of its video is available on internet. Luckily the songs are available in the form of audios only.

‘Ustaad Meraa Naam’ was directed by Saraswati Kumar for Ravi International (Ravi Chitra Films), Madras. It was passed by Censor Board on 26.05.1972. The star cast for the film is listed as Krishna, Jyotilaxmi, Raja Sulochana, Satyanarayan, Prabhakar Reddy, Tyagraj, Azad, Pahalwan and others.

I think this must be a dubbed movie from a movie from south and could be an obscure movie of its time.

This movie had four songs written by Prem Dhawan and composed to music by Satyam. All the four songs are solo songs sung by Asha Bhonsle only. Following is the list of songs as given in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

Blog Day : 4978 Post No. : 16858 Movie Count : 4586

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 18#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Subah O Shaam’ (1972). This is one of the movies still missing on the blog. I became aware of this movie almost seven years back through HFGK when I got my first copy of HFGK i.e. HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). I had then planned to present a Rafi song from this movie – “Meri Biwi Jahaan Se Niraali Hai”. I was actually looking for songs in the category ‘praising the wife/spouse song’; later on I dropped that idea (something for the good I think). Today I am presenting a duet song from this movie, which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar.

‘Subah O Shaam’ (1972) was directed by Chanakya for Shri Ganesh Prasad Movies, Madras. It included in its star-cast Waheeda Rehman, Sanjeev Kumar, Fardin, Loreta, Irin, Simin Gafri, Azar, Meeri, Kahanmoyi, Tajdudd, Tehrani, Rafi and others. This movie also had Rafiyee and Paiman as child artists. As mentioned in HFGK this movie was the ‘First Indo-Iranian Hindi Picture’, and that explains us the reason for the unfamiliar artists’ name in the star-cast of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.08.1972.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Here is the list of songs in this movie as provided in HFGK.

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Chhod Mera Haath Mujhe Peene De Lata Mangeshkar
02 Laa Laalalaa… Saaqi Ki Zaroorat Hai Naa Jaam Ki Lata Mangeshkar
03 Teri Meri Meri Teri Nazar Lad Gayi , Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar
04 Tadap Tadap Ke Bhi Aye Yaar Ham To Jee Lenge Lata Mangeshkar
05 Meri Biwi Jahaan Se Niraali Hai, … Mohd Rafi
06 Mere Laal, Mere Laal, Aaj Tera Janamdin Hai … Lata Mangeshkar

From the above table we can see that this movie had four solo songs by Lata Mangeshkar and one solo song by Mohd Rafi. There was only one duet and that was also the only song sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle in this movie. Today we listen to this duet song. Only audio of this song is available so it is not clear on whom this song is picturised. However I guess that it is picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman. I would request knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs, story etc.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding today’s movie which is the 125th film in the alphabetical list of films of 1972, as per Geet Kosh. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Mathura Na Jaao Bhai Kaashi Na Jaao”  from movie ‘Shiv Bhakt Baabaa Baalaknaath’ to today’s movie song-post.

तेरी मेरी मेरी तेरी
नज़र लड़ गई
दो मुलाक़ातों में
बातों ही बातों में
छोटी सी बात बढ़ गई
तेरी मेरी मेरी तेरी
नज़र लड़ गई
तेरी मेरी
मेरी तेरी

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 14#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Rut Rangeeli Aayee’ of the year 1972. This movie is one those still missing movie for the year 1972 on the blog. Today it makes its debut here.

‘Rut Rangeelee Aayee’ was directed by SM Pushkarna for Roshan Films, Bombay. It had Kanan Kaushal, Vijay Sharma, Jayshree T, Bharat Bhushan, Shyama, Brahmachari, Rehman, Nana Palsikar, Ramesh Deo, Madan Puri, Jagdish Malhotra, Bahri, Master Ratan and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.10.1972.

The film has four songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and Tajdar Taj – two songs each. Music of this film was composed by Ratnadeep-Hemraj. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

 

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Husha Hayya, Sha Shaiyya…Shola Hoon Jawaan Asha Bhonsle, Chorus Hasrat Jaipuri
02 Koyi Chal Diya, Koyi Rah Gayaa Akela Mohd Rafi, Chorus Hasrat Jaipuri
03 Ek Zaraa Sa Kaam Karo, Bolo Bolo, Aaj Yahaan… Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle Tajdar Taj
04 Leke Main To Champaa Chameli Baabu, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle Tajdar Taj

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip synced by Brahmachari and Jayshree T. The song happens to be a stage drama song. However, since the movie is not available it is difficult to say in what context this song happens in the movie.

‘Rut Rangeelee Aayee’ is an obscure movie of its time. Though video of couple of its song are available. But the movie seems to be unavailable, or I could not find it.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Aaj To Mera Ho Ja Tu“, from movie ‘Ratna Daaku’ to today’s movie song-post.

Lyrics

champaa chameli motiya leke aayi phoolonwaali
phool le lo o

leke main to champa chameli baabu
leke main to champa chameli baabu
raste mein khadi hoon akeli baabu
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya

haaye ae
champa ya chameli na man bhaaye
champa ya chameli na man bhaaye
gori tera komal badan bhaaye
jawaani kar de mere naam
o meri chhammak chhallo o
jawaani kar de mere naam
o meri chhammak chhallo o o

gajrey
kharido gajrey
in bheeni
pyaari kaliyon le
arey chakkar
lagaaye barson
maine sajani
teri galiyon ke
meri galiyon ke na phere karna
rapat likhwa doongi teri warna
leke main to champa
aa ha
aa ha
aa ha
ho leke main to champa chameli baabu
raste mein khadi hoon akeli baabu
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya

haaye
dil pe
nahin hain kaabu
kaisaa jaadu
tu ne kar daalaa

arey doongi
thhapede kas ke
aayaa majnu
hunh
bada dilwaala
tere sab nakhre hain
thhode din ke
ho loonga saare badle
main gin gin ke
aa ha champa ya chameli
ho o o oye oye oye
champa ya chameli na man bhaaye
gori tera komal badan bhaaye
jawaani kar de mere naam
o meri chhammak chhallo o
jawaani kar de mere naam
o meri chhammak chhallo o o

rang hai
nasheela jinka aa aa
laayi chunke aise gul boote
haaye haaye
tujh sa
nahin hai koyi
tere aage
saare rang jhhoothhe
tu hai bada pakkaa shikaari rasiya
ke aaj tere aage main haari rasiya
leke main to
aa ha
leke main to champa chameli baabu
raste mein khadi hoon akeli baabu
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya

haan aa
champaa ya chameli na man bhaaye
champaa ya chameli na man bhaaye
gori tera komal badan bhaaye
jawaani kar de mere naam
o meri chhammak chhallo o
jawaani kar de mere naam
o meri chhammak chhallo o

o chhammo
o chhallo
o chhammo
ji chhallo
arey meri chhammak chhallo
zara aa
ahaa ahaa ahaa
