Blog Day :

4471 Post No. : 15971

We in this blog remember the personalities of HFM during their anniversaries. But in case of Ashok Kumar’s birth anniversary, we are constrained to defer it to next day because this day unfortunately turned out to be the death anniversary of Kishore Kumar, his younger brother.

Ashok Kumar (13 October 1911 – 10 December 2001) was easily the first superstar of HFM. He achieved his stardom in early 1940s, at a time when many actors now regarded as superstars had not even made their debuts. For instance, people like Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor had not even made their debuts by that time. Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan, future superstars were mere toddlers at that time.

Ashok Kumar began his film career as a lab technician. His rise to superstardom from that position was quite meteoric. Unlike meteors, he stayed on top throughout his career. He was not just a top actor, he was also a film maker. He never had to look for work. He was himself an employer of film actors. Unlike many film personalities who fell on hard times and survived in penury in old age, Ashok Kumar managed his finances well and he was always financially well secured. This is one quality of his that most film personalities needed to learn from.

Ashok Kumar was well connected to lots and lots of other well known film personalities through blood relations as well as marriage alliances. In his own household he had Anup Kumar and Kishore Kumar as his brothers. His sister Sati Rani Devi was married to film producer Shashdhar Mukherjee (founder of Filmalaya), whose brother Subodh Mukherjee was a director. Shashdhar Mukherjee’s sons were Rono Mukherjee, Joy Mukherjee, Deb Mukherjee, Shomu Mukherjee and Shubir Mukherjee, all into films. Shomu Mukherjee’s wife is Tanuja. Their daughter is Kajol.

If one looks at the filmy connections of Ashok Kumar, thanks to Kishore Kumar’s various marriages, it will turn out that Ashok Kumar was related to almost every major star in HFM and beyond. Ashok Kumar is related to Kapoors, Bachchans, Rabindranath Tagore, Mithun Chakraborty etc. Exploring all these connections can be used as an exercise in timepass by those interested. 🙂

Ashok Kumar was an actor-singer during the early parts of his career. Some of his songs have gone on to become immortal songs. Who can forget the immortal “Achhot Kanya”(1937) duet Main ban ki chidiya ban ban doloon re with Devika Rani.

Here is another Ashok Kumar-Devika Rani duet. This song is from “Anjaan”(1941). It is penned by Kavi Pradeep. Music is composed by Pannalal Ghosh.

A very nice retro style romantic song. One would love watching the picturisation.

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

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 68
———————————————————————————–

The date ten years ago, viz 1 september 2010 saw as many as seven songs getting discussed in the blog. First post of the aday appeared at 5:45 AM and the seventh post at 9:01 AM ! Ten years from that day, I am surprised myself how I was able to cover seven songs in a matter of little over three hours !

Here are the details of these songs :-

As many as six out of the seven movies that figured ten years ago, have already been YIPPEED by now. “Bewafa”(1952) is the only movie that still has a few songs left to be covered and that makes this movie the only movie eligible for “Blog Ten Year Challenge” for today (1 september 2020).

“Bewafa”(1952) was produced by Nargis and directed by M L Anand. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Nargis, Raj Kapoor, Neelam, Siddiquie, Sybil, Advani, Nizam, Sheel, Ghosh etc in it. The movie had nine songs in it. The movie made its debut in the blog on this date ten years ago. Six songs from the movie have been covered in the blog so far. Here are the details:-

Hullo Atuldom

Happy festival at the outset.

A festival that goes by various names :- Makara Sankranti (AP, Karnataka, Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra), Pongal (TN & Pondicherry), Lohri (Punjab, Haryana, Delhi), Sakraat & Makraat (Bihar, UP, Uttarakhand), Uttarayan (Gujarat, Diu, Daman), Suggi (in parts of Karnataka), Magh Saaji (HP), Ghughuti – (Kumaon), Makara Chaula (Odhisha), Kicheri (Poorvanchal, East UP), Pousha Sankranti (Bengal and North East), Magh Bihu (Assam), Shishur Sankraat (Kashmir ), etc etc. Outside of the country, in some neighbouring Asian countries to be exact, it is celebrated as Maaghe Sankrast – Nepal, Tirmoori – Sindh Pakistan, Songkran -Thailand , Pi Ms. Lao – Laos, Thingyan – Myanmar, Mohan Songkran – Cambodia etc. Basically we are all celebrating the transition of the Sun across the Equator, on it’s journey from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere.

Each region of India have their own ways of celebrating the event but as I have come to understand there are a few things common to all –Jaggery, til (also called gingelly, or sesame seeds), sugarcane, and freshly harvested ears of corn, wheat or even turmeric (in South India). Then of course the children enjoy themselves with kite flying which takes on the form of competition at times. So let us say Happy Festival. Tamil Nadu has its festivities spread over 3-4 days culminating in what is called Mattu Pongal – celebrated the next day of Sankrant with races with cattle involved. (PETA has tried to bring some order to the extent to which the animals can be made use of, and the conditions in which the races take place).

Last weekend, I was lucky to be asked to join my Chacha and Chachi, to an evening full of OPN songs by a newly formed music group. The members of the group were out to entertain themselves and showcase their talent among their close friends and relatives. The closest anyone of the group had come to anything Bollywood was when the hostess’s father had his ardent fan moment when he came face to face with OP Nayyar sometime in the 70s or 80s. That man was a self taught Harmonica player and encouraged his children and wife to sing along. And the wife and daughter of the (now) deceased man were at the forefront of the group which had female and male singers who sang in their own voices without aping any of the originals and that was a welcome change. The group presented medleys of songs with similar beats- the trade mark tonga-beat songs, and songs dipped in Punjabi folk tunes. The evening began with the song from ‘Sambandh’ – “Chal Akela Chal Akela” and then one song followed the next. The evening climaxed with songs that fell in tune with “Sar Pe Topi Laal Haath Mein Resham Ka Roomal”. In between there was an instrumental rendition of songs from ‘Kashmir ki Kali’, ‘Ek Musafir Ek Haseena’, ‘Kismat’ and ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon’ using the saxophone by Shri Shyam Raj ji who (if I heard right) had been a saxophone player for many of OPN’s songs.

Let me add that we were invited to the evening because my cousin’s husband has taken up singing and joined this group post his retirement. It was a revelation that he sang so well. The first song he sang that evening was “Piya Piya Piya Mora Jiya Pukaare” and “Surma Mera Niraala” was his next. And I must say he “yodels” almost like the Kishore Kumar whose fan he is.

As is my habit (ever since I associated with this blog) the first thing I did on returning home was to look up the anniversary page of our blog and see what was the date of OPN’s anniversaries. Next I checked what songs of OPN are yet to make their appearance on the blog. I found many movies of the 50s & 60s with two or three songs left to attain yyiippeeeehood. Then I began looking up for associated videos on YouTube, these songs are not yet available on YouTube too. In fact only the audio of some songs are available and not the whole movie. So that makes reaching videos difficult. But we cannot let the occasion of remembering OPN go by without a song.

So here it is. A song from the film ‘Raagini’ of 1958. The film is produced by Ashok Kumar, jointly with TS Ganesh, and is directed by Rakhan. This movie had a song which was enacted on screen by Kishore Kumar and playback was by Mohd Rafi. Now I discovered another song, as I was hunting songs for this post, which is again classical raaga based and Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan and Fateh Ali Khan are the playback singers. On screen we have Padmini performing a classical dance and Kishore Kumar sitting on stage in a classical gaayaki mode and lip-syncing. A very uncharacteristic Kishore and a very uncharacteristic Omkar Prasad Nayyar who was popular as OP Nayyar. The song ends with Padmini matching steps to the brilliant tabla accompaniment.

As I was writing this post I recollected a post by Atul ji where he has mentioned about movies with names of popular actresses of the time but the actresses were not part of the cast of that particular movie, e.g. ‘Kalpana’ (1960) didn’t have Kalpana as heroine. An this film, ‘Raagini’ has Padmini as the heroine; Raagini the actress was her sister.

Let us enjoy this rare presentation, Kishore Kumar lip syncing a classical song in the voice of Bade Fateh Ali Khan.


Song – Chhed Diye Mere Dil Ke Taar Kyun (Raagini) (1958) Singers – Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan, Bade Fateh Ali Khan, Lyricist – Jaanisar Akhtar, MD – O P Nayyar

Hullo Atuldom

Sometimes a sudden tune or memory or word sends the mind looking for a song or visual connection. So, a few days back it was a tune in my head that sent me looking for today’s song. I remembered, rather vaguely, that the song had Ashok Kumar dancing away merrily. I remember having seen it eons ago on Doordarshan – the one source of most of my nostalgia.

I hunted down the song. I found the name of the movie it was from. Searched for it on YouTube. Enjoyed my first encounter with that movie thoroughly. It has been listed on IMDB.com under “action, crime, drama” genre. It should also have been categorised as “comedy”.

The movie had a huge cast- a set of dancing actresses headed by Shashikala, Aruna Irani, Prema Narayan, Helen, Jayshree T., Meena T. and Shubha Khote & Manorama. The male line up was headed by Ashok Kumar, Ranjeet, Sujit Kumar, Keshto Mukherjee, Asrani, Jagdeep, Viju Khote, Krishan Dhawan, Chandrashekhar, Coca Cola, Pinchoo Kapoor, Birbal, Yusuf Khan (Zabisco from Amar Akbar Anthony), Babban, Pakoda Kader etc. There were a few more known faces which were billed as guest appearance- Amjad Khan, special appearance- Danny and friendly appearance -Mehmood.

There were many movies back then where we had known faces putting in appearances in these categories as a gesture to the maker of the movie. And I think I know why Mehmood did this movie as the maker S. Ramanathan had been a co-director on “Bombay to Goa”.

This movie begins on a night where Ranjeet (one of the serious persons throughout the movie) is hatching a plot to steal diamonds from the vault of Pinchoo Kapoor’s residence in the company of Sujit Kumar (he plays a dead body for half the movie)- that is where the crime angle is. As the plan is being executed Pinchoo Kapoor is shot dead (crime angle again). But he Dials 100 with the help of his pet Pomeranian -that is one intelligent pet which has a good part to play in helping recognize the lost daughters of the family. That is when the ‘drama angle’ comes into play when the pet recognizes one daughter because of her locket, takes her to the bungalow where the loyal servant of the house enquires about the girl whose photo is in the locket. Further family-drama comes into play when it turns out that the girl in possession of the above mentioned locket is also the younger daughter of the family and in the absolute climax of the movie the sisters unite and with the aide of the hero and practically the entire cast catches Ranjeet and hands him over to the cops headed by Krishan Dhawan and Chandrashekhar.

Of course, we have to sit through the movie, from the murder to reach the climax (only place where there is dishoom- dishoom in the movie), through a not-so-boring movie. Danny was a revelation as far as his comic timing was concerned. I will not spell here what transpires through the movie and spoil the fun for anyone who may wish to see this movie.

Today’s song features the tenants of Manorama’s apartment as they gather to wish the newly-engaged hero -heroine (every Bollywood movie worth its name needs a jodi) Vinod Mehra and Bindiya Goswami. Everyone is singing and having the time of their life except Bindiya Goswami. The song is sung by Manna Dey (for all the males present), Asha Bhonsle (for the females) and Bappi Lahiri for Vinod Mehra. Anjaan wrote the song and Bappida was the music director for this S. Ramanathan directed “Dial 100” which released on 2nd April 1982.

Here is the song where Ashok Kumar leads along with Aruna Irani and the rest of those present join. I have always loved songs where Ashok Kumar visibly enjoys himself. Let us also enjoy this song.

Thinking of Dada Moni today on his anniversary.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 47
——————————————————————————————

When one discussed a movie of 1940s, one often assums by default that it must be a “boring” movie, one which may not hold the interest of later generation movie goers. And when one finds that this movie has Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis in lead roles, people who have seen them in character roles may consider dropping the idea of watching the movie.

But what if I tell you that this movie from 1941 is a laugh riot ? And that this movie was the original inspiration of “Padosan”(1968) ? I am sure that people will suddenly get interested in knowing more about this movie.

“Jhoola”(1941) was directed by Gyan Mukherji for Bombay Talkies, Bombay. This movie, a “social” movie had Leela Chitnis, Ahok Kumar, Shah Nawaz, V H Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Karuna Devi, Shahzadi, Rajkumari Shukla, Meenu Cooper, M A Aziz, Kaazi, Master Laxman, Leeladhar Sharma, Iqbal Bai, B M Dixit, Jyoti, Dulaari, Nana Palsikar etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past. This movie has a song that goes Ek chatur naar karkar singaar . Yes, I mentioned that this movie is the original source for “Padosan”(1968) and this song is the inspiration of that famous “Padosan”(1968) Kishore Kumar Manna dey laugh riot.

If “Padosan”(1968) had Mehmood then “Jhoola”(1941) had his father Mumtaz Ali lip syncing the wonderful stage dance song Main to Dilli se dulhan laayaa re.

“Jhoola”(1941) had made its debut in the blog on 26 september 2009, viz exactly ten years ago, with the evergreen song Chali re chali re meri naao chali re .

This day that year ten years ago, the blog was at its usual prolific best. Six songs from six different movies were covered in the blog on that day. Five out of six of those movies have already been covered in the blog. “Jhoola”(1941) remains the only un YIPPEED movie from that day.

Here are the details of the songs that were discussed on 26 september 2009:

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tera mujhse hai pahle ka naata koi Aa Gale Lag Jaa-1973 All Songs covered in the blog
Har aas ashqbaar hai Kinaare Kinaare-1963 All Songs covered in the blog
Dekha naa jaaye socha naa jaaye Mr India-1961 All Songs covered in the blog
Kahaan chhod ke chalaa hai tu Anjaan-1956 All Songs covered in the blog
De bhi chuke ham dil nazraana dil kaa Jaal-1952 All Songs covered in the blog
Chali re chali meri naao chali re Jhoola-1941 05 of 11 songs covered

According to HFGK, the movie had 12 songs. I find that the song Ek chatur naar karkar singaar does not find mention if HFGK. To compensate for that, the song under discussion today gets mentionc twice (as song number 6 and 11). So the count of songs in the movie remains accurate, viz 12.

Today, as part of Blog ten year challenge, here is another song from “Jhoola”(1941). Like the song that was covered ten years ago, this song too is a duet sung by Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis. In the song ten years ago, the leading duo were riding a boat, here they ride a ghodagaadi, and while doing so, Ashok Kumar makes gentle 1940s style passes on Leela Chitnis, asking the love letter back. Leela Chitnis teases him back 1940s style responds 1940s style viz.

Dekho kah doongi
Haan haan dekho kah doongi
Tumhaare man ki batiyaan

and subsequently

Hamri gali mein dekho
Tum kal se aana chhodo
Varna hansengi hamaari sakhiyaan

The lyrics by Kavi Pradeep are quite cute and romantic. The romantic song, in which both make paasses at each other must have been quite a rage in those pre independence days.

Music is composed by Saraswati Devi.

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

Mukesh and his co-singers – 5
————————————————

We remember Mukesh on his remembrance day today (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976).

Needless to say, the post had to be special. But, when a singer has almost 80% of songs considered as hits and most of these songs already represented on the blog, what can be more special. Well, a few hitherto songs of Mukesh continue to be discovered with a great deal of exhilaration to his fans and old hfm lovers in general. I assume that the present song will make this post special.

It is well known that Mukesh has nil to very few duets with singers like Noorjahan, Amirbai Karnataki, Jagit Kaur, Khursheed, Parul Ghosh etc. With singers like Hamida Banu, Suraiya, Rajkumari, Surinder Kaur, Sitara Kanpuri etc, the numbers are again quite few. He does have sizable numbers with Lata, Asha, Suman Kalayanpur, Geeta Dutt etc.

A very interesting companion in singing in this discussion will be off course the versatile Shamshad Begum. I had almost taken it for granted that all songs of hers with Mukesh have been covered on the blog. But then one thing led to another and resulted in this post of which I am extremely happy. Not one but two duets have been discovered in the last few weeks. Before I proceed with revealing the songs, it is pertinent to mention the traceability aspects of these duets.

We go back to Sadanand ji posting the Mukesh number for MGR in the comments section. I decided to take up Dhaniram’s collaboration with Mukesh and as usual sent the query to Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji (of Surat) enquiring if it was the sole song under the composer.

Harish ji did confirm the singularity of the case, but added a priceless info that there is a duet in Shole (1953) in which Mukesh has a duet with Shamshad Begum. He further stated that very few music lovers are aware of this duet. The context being Dhaniram being the other composer apart from Naresh Bhattacharya to have scored music for the film. When I searched for this duet on the internet, I came across a Hemant Kumar solo and his duet with Shamshad Begum. Not losing hope, I was lucky enough to find the full movie on youtube. I first decided to go through the credit titles if I could trace Mukesh.

The film titles are shown on a railway track with very poor background and the moving train literally pushing the titles out of the screen. With great difficulty, I saw all the titles and there appears no mention of any of the playback singers in the film. Here, I would seek more knowledgeable reader’s kind explanation as to why many of the old films never bothered to credit playback singers in the titles. I suppose this trend continued even in the sixties for quite a few films.

The print of the film is extremely poor in both voice and picturization. The saving grace being something is available to run through. In spite the bad print and poor audio what stands out is the impeccable grace and beauty of Bina Rai and the ever energetic and melodious voice of Shamshad Begum. Coming back to the bad print of the film Shole (1953), I decided to run the film arbitrarily at short intervals. Then for one of the duets with a rather long prelude, I could hear sound bites very familiar to me. Yes, it is undoubtedly Mukesh.

I was so excited that I noted the time at which this duet starts and closed the film. I went to the other room in my house where my wife was busy with our daughter in her studies. They had a cursory look at my face and instantly both asked what I was so delighted about. I told them about the discovery and they again became engrossed with the studies knowing very well that this guy has no better work to do. My daughter likes a few songs of Raj Kapoor sung by Mukesh and wife likes a few of his duets and solos, but they are never into these statistics and other aspects of old hfm songs as I am. Anyways, I was back to the same link and juncture and again savored what I was listening for the very first time; an unheard duet of Mukesh. Only the first couple of lines of the mukhda are sung by Mukesh and then Shamshad Begum takes over for the rest of the duet. Its an extremely melodious duet to listen.

Now coming to another strange feature, I found four different versions of this song. The below table is self-explanatory and I have provided links for each of the versions.

Version Singers YouTube link
Film Soundtrack Mukesh, Shamshad Begum https://youtu.be/G8gkPL4qc8o
Hemant Kumar https://youtu.be/mmoh60LfIsc
78 rpm record Hemant Kumar https://youtu.be/OuvVFrcTYuU
Hemant Kumar, Shamshad Begum https://youtu.be/zlzgIDgky7g
Full movie SHOLE (1953) https://youtu.be/W6ubiNUgZuQ

Now, if the film had Mukesh and the 78 rpm version songs had Hemant Kumar, it would have been quite understandable. But, Hemant Kumar having sung the film version of the solo makes the case quite intriguing. Did Mukesh walk out of the film after singing the duet? We may never know. What we do know is that during this period he was working in various departments such as acting, composing, producing etc. and these experiments costing him dearly in terms of getting offers to give playback arguably for the rest of his singing career.

Also, during late forties and early fifties, the void created by the passing away of KL Saigal in early 1947 was yet to be filled. Good friends Mukesh and Talat Mahmood were vying to fill the gap and they both failed. One can now say with much conviction that the void created by KL Saigal will remain till the end of days.

Coming back to the versions, both the film soundtracks have poor audio and the 78 rpm ones have better audio quality. For some reason, I personally feel the duet of the film soundtrack is the best amongst the four if a better copy is available to listen. The momentary pause that Shamshad Begum has in the film soundtrack is more appealing than in the version song. Now one may ask, pause is a pause and how it can be differentiated. Well, crazy music lovers have additional senses to assimilate such nuances in music. Long live such craziness. 🙂

Now we come to the important discussion on the combo of Shamshad Begum and Mukesh. Forget writing in detail about their association, the very mention of the two names together excites me to no end.  Mukesh and Shamshad Begum, two different styles, but when it came to duets the styles glued to form some glorious duets in the annals of HFM. At many places on the net it is mentioned that the singers have altogether 22-24 duets. I am happy to list 29 and here is the carcanet of the jewels.

A cursory glace at the table reveals that they have actively sung most of their 29 duets during a period of only for 4 years of their career. This aspect has much to be pondered about.

Before I proceed to write on the above duets please note that song no 23 has SD Batish, 26 has Geeta Roy, Pramodini Desai and 27 has Rafi saab singing along with Mukesh and Shamshad Begum in the respective songs.

It would not be an exaggeration to state that Mukesh and Shamshad were pioneers in playback singing. I know it is more often used for Shamshad’s career, but let us not forget that Mukesh too started giving playback as early as 1944 with ‘Uss Paar’. Why ‘Uss Paar’ and not ‘Moorti’ or ‘Pheli Nazar’? Well, that could take another detailed post. 🙂

In the above list song number 1, 3, 4 and 5 are regular features on Radio Ceylon and are played to this day. 6 was of course the directorial debut of Raj Kapoor, with Ram Ganguly’s haunting scores – the songs of the film remain popular to this day. The next film of RK, as we are well aware, had a change in composers. Shamshad Begum had a cabaret solo in ‘Awara’ and a couple of not so popular songs for SJ thereafter.

10 by one of my favourite composers Ghulam Mohammed is a rare treat to hear. I only wish Mukesh has sung more songs for him.

8, 9 and 11 to 14 need no description and arguably are the best-known duets of the combo; the magician of these two films being none other than the great Naushad.

‘Shabnam’ under SD Burman had 3 duets of the combo with Mukesh giving playback for thespian Dilip Kumar. Needless to say, the songs of this film were a huge rage during those days.

21 under Gyan Dutt is an absolute masterpiece. The debut movie of Madan Mohan had the combo singing a comical duet at 22.

The other songs may not be very well known, but as I have said earlier it is the combination of the singers that make the duets lively and a pleasure to listen.

Quite a few of these duets have been covered by our Sudhir ji in his series on Mukesh wherein he covered the rare and difficult to trace songs at the beginning of Mukesh’s career. Again, as I have written earlier, in spite of the best efforts of Sudhir ji having covered all the songs of Mukesh till 1950, welcome discoveries continue to be uncovered and 2 is such an example. Sudhir ji has shared the audio with me and it will be posted on the blog in the very near future. 🙂

29 and probably the last duet of the combo is covered in this post and I have already written about the many facets of this song. In fact Sudhir ji has sent queries and sought clarifications from his collector friends to understand the existence of the multiple versions of this song in the film.

‘Shole’ (1953) was directed by BR Chopra for Hira Films. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Bina Rai, Purnima, Jeevan, Mohana, Manmohan Krishna, Mirza Musharaf, Romi, Naaz, Uma Dutt etc in it. The movie had two music directors viz Dhaniram and Naresh Bhattacharya. The present song is composed by the latter. The lyrics of this multiple version song are credited to Kamil Rashid.

The lyrics of the Hemant Kumar solo version are slightly different in the 78 rpm vs the soundtrack versions, but giving due credit to Hamant Da, I herewith, for obvious reasons, present the lyrics of only the film soundtrack version of Mukesh and Shamshad Begum

I thank Harish ji for all the help rendered in making this elusive duet of Mukesh appear on the blog. I also thank Sudhir ji and Atul ji for giving me yet another opportunity to present this post.

Lastly, on his remembrance day, I pay humble tributes to Mukesh whose mellifluous voice continues to regale listeners the world over.

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

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

Lyrics
