Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 22
————————————————

This day, ten years ago, the songs that we were listening to are listed below,

 

Dukh Ke Ab Din Beetat Naahin Devdas 1935
Antam Fantam Chhod De Babu Hum Sab Chor Hain 1956
Hai Kali Kali Ke Lab Par Lala Rukh 1958
Jaa Re Beimaan Tujhe Jaan Liyaa Private Secretary 1962
Dil Ki Girah Khol Do Raat Aur Din 1967
Apni Aadat Hai Sabko Salaam Karnaa Pyaar Deewaana 1972

 

Six songs were posted, six films represented. Over the past 10 years, four of these films have completed their run of songs – ‘Devdas’ (1935), ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956), ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958) and ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967).

For the remaining two films, the score card says –

‘Private Secretary’ (1962) – 4 songs posted out of total 7 listed, and
‘Pyaar Deewaana’ (1972) – 2 songs posted out of total 8 listed.

So in preparation for the Ten Year Challenge post for today, as I started to scan the remaining songs of these two films, I had to stop right at the first song that I checked, for I knew it has to be this one today. The song is a stage dance song from the film ‘Private Secretary’. The listing in the Geet Kosh is not fully informative, because the song title listed is actually the lead in verse to the song. The burden of the song comes later, and it was not apparent when I read the song title. But when I played this song – my goodness, I am amazed that a song of this caliber has been lying unnoticed for all these years. That is the reason for the urgency in my mind to post this.

This song was frequently heard on the air waves during the radio listening days, and so it is a very familiar and a favorite song from that time. After the leading verse, as soon as Lata ji starts to croon “O O O Saanwre. . .”, I just sat up straight with surprise – my God, this song, this lovely melody. Not yet posted. Hiding where all these years. And I knew it has to get posted right away.

The film ‘Private Secretary’ is produced under the banner of Radiant Movies, Bombay and is directed by Chander. The cast of actors is listed as Ashok Kumar, Jaishri Gadkar, NA Ansari, Mohan Choti, Poornima, Raja Gosavi, Neelam, Jerry, TN Sinha, Manohar Geer, Raj Kumar, Ravi Khanna, Kashi, CN Kapoor, Athawale, and Umakant. The seven songs listed are all from the pen of Prem Dhawan, and the music is composed by Dilip Dholakia. The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar.

The song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar on screen, as a stage performance. In the beginning of the song, we can see Ashok Kumar and Mohan Choti as part of the audience. A wonderful song and an equally wonderful performance – the song merits to be on the list of best dance songs.

Listen to this charming melody. And tell me. Did you have the same reaction as I did?

Song – O Saanwre, Aa Ja Pyaar Liyei  (Private Secretary) (1962) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Dilip Dholakia

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Back to writing after a break and am having a problem trying to get my thoughts in order. These last few days I have made a few posts mentally and here I am trying to write about one of my favourite actors who would have turned 99 today.

The year 1972 saw a new genre of films wherein two actors who were past their prime – 61 and 52 was definitely not the age where actors play college students or young characters- were playing the central characters in a movie where the lead actor or the supposed- hero played second fiddle to these two. I am talking of Victoria No 203 by Brij Sadanah. Brij himself made another movie a few years later “Chori Mera Kaam” with these two seniors playing central characters. I am talking of an all-time favourite Jodi of cinelovers – Ashok Kumar and Pran.

S. K. Kapur was another producer -director who made this Jodi the centre of his stories in the moves of 70s and early 80s – Apna Khoon, Shankar Dada, Durga, Maan Gaye Ustaad. But the best tribute to the lovable Jodi was Kapur’s movie “Raja Aur Rana” – it didn’t have a regular actor playing the hero. Puneet Issar made his debut in this movie and was supposed to be a hero but “Raja aur Rana” was essentially Ashok Kumar- Pran all over. They did every antic that they were famous for from the time “Victoria No 203” became a success.

Before I go any further let me clarify one thing- Ashok Kumar and Pran did not team up for the first time in “Victoria No 203”; they have been cast together in movies since the 50s or even before that. Back then they used to play serious characters, mostly the protagonist and the antagonist. “Victoria No 203” changed all that. We saw the comic timing of these two senior actors.

I need to clarify one more thing- both these actors have performed in song situations through their career but post “Victoria 203” that also changed. The ability of these two to switch from insane characters of Raja and Rana can be gauged from the fact that about the same time Ashok Kumar played the grandfather in “Anuraag” and Pran was the grandfather in “Parichay”; Pransaab (as he used to be addressed) also played a regular cigar munching villain in “Roop Tera Mastana” that year. Such great actors and trailblazers – there are no replacements for them only actors who are inspired by them and aspire to be like them.

Today I bring to the blog a song from S. K. Kapur produced and Shibu Mitra directed “Raja Aur Rana”. The cast included Ajit, Shakti Kapoor, Puneet Issar, Madhu Malhotra, Chand Usmani, Aaloka etc etc supporting Ashok Kumar and Pran (Pran was always billed in the credits of movies as “And Pran”).

I have not seen the movie but I fell in love with this super Jodi all over again when I accidentally saw this song a few months back. We have Pransaab cross-dressing in this song and Shakti Kapoor and his henchmen playing the peeping- toms on the “loving couple”. The song was written by Varma Malik and Bappi Lahiri was the music director. We have Kishore Kumar singing for Ashok Kumar and Mahesh Kumar singing for Pransaab – the female voice belongs to Mahesh Kumar about whom our in-house encyclopaedia had written a few lines in a post of his. The post contained a song sung by Mahesh Kumar in dual voice, it seems he could sing in 32 voices.

This is such a cute husband-wife exchange with which we remember the adorable Pransaab on his 99th Birth anniversary.

I would also like to wish a fellow Atulite on his birthday today with lots of fun and music in his life. All the best to Avinashji on his birthday.


Song-Aji sunte ho (Raja Aur Rana)(1983) Singers-Mahesh Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Bappi Lahiri
Both

Lyrics

haaye haaye
haaye haaye haaye
aji sunte ho
o aji sunte ho
haan sunta hoon
aji sunte ho
lekar tum akhbaar ka panna
race ke ghode ginte ho
o aji sunte ho
koi vaid bulaao
koi doctor laao
hakeem mangaao
aji sunte ho

mujhe nauwaan lagaa hai
ik dard jagaa hai
haaye yahaan se uthha
aur yahaan gayaa hai
shaadi na hoti
main aaj na roti
dulhan na banti
bacche na janti
zaalim ye mahina
mera dhadke hai seena
tu dekh le apna
ye kaarnaama
kyun mujhe phansaaya
kar kar ke drama
ki toone mujhse
kartoot hai koi
tu mard nahin hai
jinn bhoot hai koi
o aji sunte ho
o aji sunte ho
haan sunta hoon

oye
ab kyun roti hai meri dulhan
pyaari tumhen yaad nahi aati
ab kyun roti hai meri dulhan
pyaari tumhen yaad nahin aati
woh baatein saari
har roz tu kehti
mujhe sair kara de
mujhe ticket manga de
mujhe film dikha de
chal India gate mein
zara ghoom ke aayen
aur Tajmahal mein
hum khaana khaayen
tu surkhi laali
powder bhi lagaati
aur daal ke surma
tu teer chalaati
tu karke fashion
har roz aa jaati
aur kehti le chal
mujhe Juhu Chowpati
wahaan paani puri
tu khoob udaati
kabhi idli dosa
kabhi kulfi khaati
main ho gaya kadka
palle nahin paayi
tera sair sapaata
kha gaya kamaayi
o bhool gayi tu
jab maze udaati
ab dard uthha toh
phir kyun chillaati
main sunta hoon
jeb mein kitne paise reh gaye
baitha baitha ginta hoon
main sunta hoon

munnu ke paapa
tera karoon siyaapa
mujhe hichki aaye (hitchki)
mera ji machlaaye (hitchki)
mujhe saans na aaye (hitchki)
mera sar chakraaye
mera munh bedardi
kya halaat kar di
main baithhi baithhi
khaaun hichkaule
koi amma amma
ander se bole
tu roz yeh kehta
ke munda hoga
agar tujhpe gaya woh
koi gunda hoga
main aath maheene
mushqil se bitaaye
tu pyaqr se ek din
nahin poochhne aaye
o aji sunte ho
koi vaidh bulaao
koi doctor laao
hakeem mangao
o aji sunte ho

kyon taane deti
sapnon ki raani
tere dushman mar jaayen
teri jiye jawaani
pehla aur dooja
kab tumhen laga thha
na tujhko khabar thhi
na mujhko pata thha
phir teeje maheene
meri khench rajaai
toone aadhi raat ko
khushkhabri sunaai
aur chauthhe paanchve
jab tu ghabraai
aur chhathe maheene
tujhe ulti aayi
main bhaag ke aaya
tujhe paass bulaaya
tujhe maalish ki thi
tujhe tel lagaaya
chhodo ab gussa
aa tujhe sula doon
tu thhak chuki hai
tere paanv daba doon
hai hai hai hai hai hai hai hai

biwi ke har koi (some sound by Ashok Kumar)
hai paanv dabaata
tu tel lagaake
ehsaan jataata
kis baat ke liye
phir tu akadta
gharwaala hoke
mere sar pe chadhta
aurat ka farz hai
bacchon ko janna
koi toone anokha
nahin kaam ye karna

mere paass na aana
batti na bujhaana
mujhe seeti bajaa ke
nahin kabhi bulana
meri tauba tauba
kaanon ko pakdoon
hai meri galti
main naak bhi ragdoon

jhaado na bhaashan
ka milta ration
hai ye situation
karwaao operation
dono nasbandi
chal kar karwaayen
kyun apne desh ki
aabaadi badhaayen

is mehangaai mein
ek baccha kaafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi

Missing Films of 1960s – 89
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The year that we are currently exploring is 1970. And I am surprised to be coming across so many films that at least I have not been familiar with. It would have been the period that listening to the radio would have already started. However, this film does not ring a bell at all.

The film that I introduce today is ‘Sau Saal Beet Gaye’. The obscurity of this film can also be estimated by the fact that even HFGK does not contain many details about this film. It contains a partial list of songs, and very little other information about the film itself. The banner name is identified as Natraj Productions. The lyricist name is listed as Indeewar, and the music director is identified as Usha Khanna.

Now, however, the film is available online. I reviewed the credits and gathered the following additional information. The star cast of the film is Ashok Kumar, Helen, Raj Mehra, Sajjan, Iftekhar, Pratima Devi, Chaman Puri and Mukri. The screenplay and dialogues are written by Ashok Kumar himself. The producer is Madan Chopra and the director is given as two names, indicating a duo – Ved-Madan. Possibly Madan is the same as the person identified as the producer.

I did not view the film in detail, only did a quick fast forward scan. Very interestingly, the lead romantic pair in this film is Ashok Kumar and Helen. The story is about two lovers meeting across the boundaries of life and death – in two different births. Quite familiar you might say. Yes, more than a handful of films come to mind that are based on this story outline.

Anyway, details in another post, maybe. Today’s song is a stage dance song performed by Helen. The male companion in this clip is not identified – most likely an unfamiliar junior artist who just appears in this song in the film. Helen works for a theater company owned by Iftekhar, who is the cousin brother of Ashok Kumar in the film. At the end of this song, Ashok Kumar and Helen are introduced, ostensibly for the first time, but there appears the first glimmer of a familiarity. And onward, the story unfolds.

The lyrics are from the pen of Indeewar and the music is by Usha Khanna. The singing voice is Asha Bhosle. A peppy and fast paced fun number that introduces Helen in this storyline. A Helen song is always a treat, and this one is no less. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Brahmchari Ji, O Brahmchari Ji  (Sau Saal Beet Gaye) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Usha Khanna

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today 4th January is the twenty fifth ‘Remembrance Day’ (27th June’1939- 04th January’1994) of the ‘versatile genius’ RD Burman or our beloved Pancham Da. One cannot believe that it is twenty five years now since Pancham Da left us. His songs are a daily routine for me and maybe many like me, and so it never appears that he is not there. He is always there with us – the music lovers.

I wish to send an article with other song composed by Pancham for this occasion, however could not finish that article hence I for today’s occasion I am sharing herewith one of my already pending article under the series ‘Pancham-Rafi Jodi’s variety songs. We already have the following songs earlier in this series posted on the blog;

Jaag devta naag devta

Raqqaasa mare naam

Maine kab chaaha ke doolha banoonga

So coming back after a long gap in this series, today we have song composed by RD Burman from the movie ‘Takkar’ (1980). Today’s song of ‘Pancham – Rafi Jodi Songs’ is a melodious devotional song.

‘Takkar’ is a Padmalaya Films Production. produced by GA Sheshagiri Rao and directed by K Bapaiyaa. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Zeenat Aman, Jeetendra, Jayaprada, Vinod Mehra (double role), Bindiya Goswami, Ranjeet, Mac Mohan, Ashok Kumar, Kamini Kaushal, Sujit Kumar, Jeevan, Mukri, Asrani, Shivaraj, Leela Chitnis, Komila Virk, Jalal Agha, Mohan Choti, Master Bittoo, A. Abdul Hameed, Mac Mohan, Umesh Sharma, Swaraj Gupta, Anand Mohan, Umesh Khanna, K N Reddy, Pawan Babu, Asha Sachdev, Prema Narayan etc. in it.

As per HFGK this movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.04.1980. It had total seven songs in it wherein Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, and Mohd Rafi gave their voices to the songs in this movie. Lyrics for this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and Music was composed by R.D. Burman.

I do not remember to have heard this song till this post. Also from the list of other songs of this movie they don’t seem familiar to me. Though I am aware that there was this movie in those days, but have not watched it then and even till date. This is the second song from this film to appear on the blog.

Here is the brief about this film that Atul ji mentioned while posting the first song from this film (on 09.09.2013) – Moorty Ganesh Ki Andar Daulat Desh Ki.

In today’s song Sanjeev Kumar and Zeenat Aman are lip syncing in Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle’s voice respectively on the screen. Ashok Kumar, Kamini Kaushal, Jeevan, Bindiya Goswami and others are seen in the song.

From the video of the song one can assume that Zeenat Aman looks for her ‘Shyam’ in Sanjeev Kumar and Ashok Kumar seems to find the spiritual one, few seem to be interested in Kanhaiyya’s moorty itself and Sanjeev Kumar preparing to take on the evils or he too wants to get this ‘moorty’. Only those who have watched this movie can help us.

But the song is a nice hummable one. As mentioned above lyrics of this song are by Anand Bakshi and it is composed by RD Burman.

Let us now enjoy this interesting song.

Song – Maakhan Chor Nandkishore Manmohan Ghanshyam Re (Takkar) (1980) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – RD Burman
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhonsle

Though the video of the song is available, I am quite clueless about the identity of the lady who lip sync this song while Ashok Kumar is seated on a grand piano.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the lip syncer.

Blog Day : 3500 Post No. : 14061

Today is Friday, 16 february 2018. It is just another day. But trust us to find something remarkable even out of seemingly routine matters. Today is a special day for the blog. It is the 3500th day for the blog.

It follows that the blog has seen 34 such occasions in the past as well. But we took notice of such kind of centuries for the first time only last year on 8 november 2017 when it was the 3400th day for the blog.

A quick mental calculation would show that there are 365 days in a year and so ten years have 3650 days (decimal system zindabaad ! 🙂 ). Add two additional days for two leap years. So the blog will turn one decade old or 3652 days old in another 152 days from now, on 19 july 2018 !

Another quick mental calculation would reveal that 3500 x 4= 14000. The blog has 14060 songs posts as of now. So it turns out that the blog is going on at a strike rate of just over four songs a day for 3500 days !

When a blog lasts this long and adds so many articles to it, then one is able to reel off quite a few statistics associated with it. I find that the blog by now has songs from as many as 3835 movies. As many as 1080 of these movies have already been YIPPEED ! So we no longer need to search for any additional songs for these 1080 movies because all of them have already been accounted for.

In the process of discussing songs, many artists have completed their own milestones in the blog. 35 music directors, 28 lyricists and 21 singers have more than one hundred songs each in the blog. Some of them in fact have their songs running into thousands in the blog.

There are a few artists who have almost all their songs covered in the blog. All available songs of K L Saigal, Suraiyya and Sajjad Hussain are showcased in the blog. Artists like Naushad, O P Nayyar, S D Burman, Madan Mohan, Talat Mehmood etc have less than 100 songs each left to be covered in the blog.

The blog is a great example of the power of online collaboration of likeminded individuals. All these individuals are making valuable contributions through their articles, lyrics, comments, suggestions etc. Some of these contributors have completed their own centuries in the blog.

The kind of skill sets that our contributors possess for the cause of HFM can be the envy of many professional set ups. We have contributors who are like research scholars and their original researches in the field of HFM have helped add to the information in the field of HFM.

The thing that pleases me most is the fact that we all feel like a group of people close to each other. Some of us have actually met each other and continue to meet each other from time to time. We have got to know each other quite closely and we often share in the joys and sorrow of each other.

I have a feeling that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg as far as our work in the field of HFM is concerned. The real extent of the iceberg has not yet been revealed. Lots of valuable background information and statistics pertaining to HFM have been collected during this nearly one decade long journey and that information has not yet appeared in the blog.

On the occasion of the blog touching 3500 days, here is a joie de vivre genre of song from “Shatranj” (1956). This song, the sixth out of eight songs from the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Sheila Vaz and others. The lead pair of Ashok Kumar and Meena Kumari are also visible in the picturisatoon as spectators.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra. He points out that one line in the audio version differs from the video version. Trust Prakashchandra to be able to differentiate between such fine details. 🙂

“Raakhi” (1962) was produced by Siva H Ganeshan and directed by a Bhimsingh for Prabhuram Pictures, Madras. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Waheeda Rehman, Pradeep Kumar, Mehmood, Ameeta, Malika, Lalita Pawar, Raj Mehra, Randhir, Madan Puri, Shivraj, Mohan Choti, Umesh Sharma etc in it.

This archtypically melodramatic movie had one theme song dedicated to the festival of Rakhi, but other songs from the movie were apparently all wedding songs of different nature- viz from the point of view of the bride, from the point of view of the sister in law etc.

Here is the “baabul ka chhootna” genre of wedding song from “Raakhi” (1962). The song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricidt. Music is composed by Ravi. This lyricist-Music director duo have given us several great wedding songs, and this song is one of them.

The song is picturised as a background bidaai song as Waheeda Rehman, after being married off to Pradeep Kumar is deparing in a doli, looked on by Ashok Kumar, playing dulhan ka bhai.


Song-Baabul chhoot chala tera angna (Raakhi)(1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna

haath huye kya peele mere
ho gayi main to paraayi
haath huye kya peele mere
ho gayi main to paraayi
shahnaayi ki goonj mein kho gayi
baabul meri duhaayi
dil bhi mera tab tab dhadke
jab jab khanke kangna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna

jis angna mein bhaiyya ke sang
bachpan mera khela
jis angna mein bhaiyya ke sang
bachpan mera khela
us angna mein aaj khada hai
bhaiyya mera akela
jaagti aankhon dekh raha hai
mere sukh ka sapna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna

Here is the fifth and final song from “Do Bhai”(1969) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

HFGK mentions this song as one song, but the it appears twice in the movie. The part I or the “normal” song appears in the movie as the movie opening song. The slow “sad” version of it appears briefly as the movie ending song. The song plays in the background. Part I of the ong, in addition to being the movie opening song is a rail song as well because Ashok Kumar is seen travelling in trains for most part of the song. Likewise, the “movie ending” part of the song can be described as “court room” song because this part is picturised in a courtroom where Ashok Kumar dramatically appears all of a sudden as noble sacrificing characters tend to do in Hindi movies.

With this song, “Do Bhai”(1969) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. Movies with the same title were made in 1947 and 1961 as well and they have already been YIPPEED in the blog. So, with this song, all movies titled “Do Bhai”, viz. “Do Bhai” (1947), “Do Bhai” (1961) and “Do Bhai” (1969) have been YIPPEED in the blog. 🙂

Blog Day : 3476 Post No. : 13961

Today, 23rd January 2018 is the 121st Birth Anniversary of India’s best known revolutionary- Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. His life story and name is known to every Indian. It is not only very inspiring, but is very motivating as well. Unfortunately Netaji did not get the kind of help or support he needed and deserved for his Military action, from Indian politicians of his times. Netaji’s philosophy clashed with the Non-Violence policy espoused by Gandhi and his Congress Party. He pursued his dream single handedly. It is once in a Century that such a person is born. My respectful obeisance to Netaji.

On this occasion, here is a song describing his life which was nothing but a life of Balidaan or sacrifice.

Today’s song is from film Samadhi-1950. With this song, I remember and pay my respects to Music Director C.Ramchandra, in his Centenary Year.

Indian film industry is notably poor in making Patriotic films. Agreed that the first 16 years of the Talkie in India were not suitable or encouraging for making such films, as India was under British rule. But now, after 70+ years of ibdependence, the number of such films can be counted on the fingers of just one hand. Historical films have suffered the same fate. Our Historical films are based on some fictitious love stories and the history part is limited only to the costumes and Horses,Elephants etc.

No doubt, some film makers did make films based on Patriotic themes, almost immediately after independence or in the first few years after that. Songs with Patriotic themes were also used in few films. Films like Apna Desh-49,Samadhi-50, Pehla Admi-50, Andolan-51 and Anand Math-52 are some such examples, but these are only a few among the heap of song and comedy films that were being produced.Sporadic films like Jagriti-54, Chhatrapati Shivaji (52,61 and 2007) and some films of Manoj Kumar were made combining Patriotic themes in later years. As for “Historical” made those days- Mughal e Azam, Anarkali or Taj Mahal were more of Love story films than Historical films.

On this background, making a film like Samadhi was actually a risk. But this risk was offset by planting a Love story and some foot tapping songs and dances. In this, C.Ramchandra’s contribution was extremely important. The evergreen song ” Gore gore, o banke chhore” by Lata and Amirbai and few more lilting songs by Lata and Shamshad Begum made the film a memorable musical extravaganza. However, care was taken that the Patriotic theme of the movie was not compromised.

It was said that Samadhi’s story was based on a True Life story. The film was directed by Ramesh Saigal (2-3-1918 to 20-1-1980), who directed only 10 films in his career, but what some of his films were ! Shaheed-48, Samadhi-50, Shikast-53, Railway Platform-55 and Phir subah hogi-58 can not be forgotten. Film Samadhi had all the elements in it that make a movie successful. Moreover the film had the background of Indian National Army, led by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, who was loved by people of India. These factors made the film a grand success at the Box Office. By one estimate, film Samadhi-50 was the highest earner on Box Office in 1950. It reportedly made a gross collection of Rs.1,35,00,000 and a net profit of Rs. 75,00,000 (wiki).

The film cast was Ashok Kumar, Nalini Jaywant, Shyam, Mubarak, David, Badri Prashad, Shashi Kapoor Sr., Collins Paul etc etc.

Ashok Kumar and Nalini Jaywant came together for the first time with this film. They then went on to do 11 films together from 1950 to 1966. Together, they even went abroad for shooting of the film Naaz-54 . Their mutual attraction was well known in the industry. But later they parted ways and though their Bungalows in Union Park, Chembur, Bombay were opposite to each others, they did not even exchange greetings.

Actor Shyam (20-2-1920 to 15-4-1951), who was a popular Hero those days, did the role of Ashok Kumar’s elder brother despite being almost 10 years younger to Ashok Kumar. His height and good physique enabled him to look quite convincing as the elder brother of Ashok Kumar.

Shashi Kapoor Sr.(Shashi Chand Kapoor) did the role of young Ashok Kumar. It is interesting to note that the other Shashi kapoor Jr. ( Raj kapoor’s brother) did the young Ashok kumar’s role in film Sangram-50 in the same year

It is also interesting to note that Netaji’s role in this film was done by an actor named Collins. He was like an O.T.P.- never seen again in any film.

The story of this film was given by me earlier for some other post from this film, so I am not repeating it here. Baburao Patel of ” Film India”, wrote in its May-50 issue that the film was ” irrelevant and obsolete politically, since India had got its freedom now.” However the audience and the readers of his magazine did not agree to his comments and made this film a tremendous success. It goes to prove that Patriotic themes are never irrelevant.

Film Samadhi-50 had 7 songs. 5 songs were already discussed on the Blog. Let us enjoy the song by C.Ramchandra, describing Netaji’s life story in essence.

Ed note:- One song is now left to be covered. This balance song is “Sab mil kar Hind pukaaren” according to HFGK whose record was not made and this song is apparently not available.

Lyrics

ho o o o
Netaji ka jeewan hai balidaan ki ek kahaani
Netaji ka jeewan hai balidan ki ek kahaani
balidaan hi balidaan hai
bachpan aur jawaani
bachpan aur jaawani
balidaan ki ek kahaani
balidaan ki ek kahaani

hoye bachpan hi se chanchal man mein armaanon ka mela thha
chhoti si ek lehar thhi dil mein
toofaanon ka rela thha
college mein ustaad jo thha wo thha london ka gora
arre usne kaha college me ek din
hindi kaala log chhichhora

sher bose ka khoon jo khaula
sher bose ka khoon jo khaula
gore ko ik chapat lagai
naam kata college se lekin
hind ki laaj bachaai
Netaji ka jeewan hai balidaan ki ek kahaani
balidaan hi balidaan hai bachpan aur jawaani
balidaan ki ek kahaani
balidaan ki ek kahaani

maat pita ne samjhaaya
aur englishtan ko kiya ravaana
badon ke aage honth na khole
lekin baagi dil na maana
europe mein ICS ke imtihaan ko paas kiya
arre itna ooncha ohda paakar
deshbakht ne chhod diya
phir
hindsutan mein aakar pehle gaandhi ko parnaam kiya
gaandhi ko parnaam kiya
gaandhi ko parnaam kiya

wo desh ki seva ka baapu se pehla pehla sabak liya
pehla pehla sabak liya
pehla pehla sabak liya

bharat ke dukh dard ko socha samjha aur pehchaana
kamar baandh kar rann mein aaya
aazaadi ka deewaana
aazaadi ka deewaana
aazaadi ka deewaana

kiya angrezon ne ye aid
karen is baagi ko ab qaid
kuchal daalen
masal daalen
kuchal daalen
masal daalen

magar
bachpan se jo baagi ho
wo zulm se darna kya jaane
jalne se kab ghabraate hain
shama watan ke parwaane
jiski rag rag mein shole hon
wo kya samjhe chingaari ko
hathkadiyon ko
zanjeeron ko
jailon ki chaar deewaari ko
kadam kadam par mushqil aayi
lekin sher sada lalkaara
rah nahin sakta gair ke bas mein
Hidustan hamaara
rah nahin sakta gair ke bas mein
hidustan hamaara
rah nahin sakta gair ke bas mein
hidustan hamaara

sarkaar ne kar daali nazarband zabaanband
maidaan ke jo mard hain hote hai kahaan band
ek raat ko chupke hi se gum ho gaye Neta
shor hua subah kahaan kho gaye Neta
janta bhi thhi hairaan
to sarkaar bhi hairaan
ud jaane se bulbul ke thha saiyyaad pareshan

lekin
maata ko ye ummeed thhi
laut aayega beta
maata se kahe bina kahaan jaayega beta
is aas mein darwaaje bhi ghar ke na kiya band
aa jaayega
aa jaayega
wo laal wo farjan

us maa se badi maa hai jo hindustan hai
wo chodd gaya maa ko
badi maa ko chudaane
is hind ki bigdi hui taqdeer banaane

badal pathaani bhesh
chala pardes
chhod kar desh
hamaara neta
badal pathaani bhesh
chala pardes
chhod kar desh
hamaara neta
aazadi ki nayi ladaai
ladne pyaaara neta

hindustan se kabul mein
aur kabul se berlin mein
chalte chalte pahunch gaya
wo singapore ke rann mein
qaum ki ye fauj aur qaumi taraana ban gaya
qaum ki ye fauj aur qaumi taraana ban gaya

ek ek tinka chuna
aur aashiyaana ban gaya
jai gandhi jai subhash
jai gandhi jai subhash
jai hind jai hind
jai hind jai hind
jai hind jai hind
jai hind
