Missing Films of 1960s – 101
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And yet, once again, another melodious and enchanting song. And once again, from a film that one has not heard anything about. The film is ‘Surya Devta’ from 1969 – as obscure as it can get. I have not heard of this film or its songs, before finding them in the Geet Kosh.

The film is produced by Alice Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Sharad Desai. The cast of actors is listed as Nirupa Roy, Ashish Kumar, Manimala, Sapru, Jeevan, Shekhar, Amrit Patel, Sarita Khatau, P Kailash, Sarita Devi, Shukla, Dalpat, Bhoj Kumar, and Kapoor.

The film has six songs listed. The lyrics are written by two poets – Madan and Bharat Vyas. Today’s song is written by Madan. The music is composed by Avinash Vyas. The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur.

As I am preparing this post, and checking the genre categories, I realize that this song is an opposite genre of the “Please Don’t Go” type songs. Something like “Please Let Me Go” song. 🙂 I can think of one or two other such songs.

But what a lovely melodious composition, and what a lovely rendering by Suman Kalyanpur. A song that surely should have been more heard and more known.

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Jaane De, O Bedardi Jaane De  (Surya Devta) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Madan, MD – Avinash Vyas

 

Lyrics

jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
morey maathe ki bindiya bikhar gai re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

rok ke meri raah
naam badnaam na kar mere pyaar ka
rok ke meri raah
naam badnaam na kar mere pyaar ka
chaaron taraf pehra hai sainyyaan
is bairi sansaar ka
ab milne ki ghadiyaan guzar gayin re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

door rahoongi tan se sainyyaan
mann to hai tere paas re
door rahoongi tan se sainyyaan
mann to hai tere paas re
janam janam se hoon main teri
kar mujh pe vishwaas re
more kajre ki kor bigad gayi re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
morey maathe ki bindiya bikhar gai re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

जाने दे
ओ ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
ओ ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
मेरी माथे की बिंदिया बिखर गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

रोक के मेरी राह
नाम बदनाम ना कर मेरे प्यार का
रोक के मेरी राह
नाम बदनाम ना कर मेरे प्यार का
चारों तरफ पहरा हैं सैंय्या
इस बैरी संसार का
अब मिलने की घड़ियाँ गुज़र गईं रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

दूर रहूँगी तन से सैंय्या
मन तो है तेरे पास रे
दूर रहूँगी तन से सैंय्या
मन तो है तेरे पास रे
जनम जनम से हूँ मैं तेरी
कर मुझ पे विश्वास रे
मोरे कजरे को कोर बिगड़ गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
मेरी माथे की बिंदिया बिखर गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

Blog Day : 3794 Post No. : 14780

Today’s song is from a Mythological film-Waman Avataar-55.

Mythological and religious films have been my favourite Genre for two reasons. One was that, our family had shifted to Banares for about 2 years when my father-a Hindu Mahasabha leader- went underground after the termoil of the killing of Gandhiji, to avoid arrest. Savarkar and his followers were arrested all over India in this connection, as Godse was a Hindu Mahasabha member in his past. In Benares, we stayed very close to Vishwanath Mandir and father gave religious discourses, being a Sanskrit scholar, in that temple. So, from childhood I was exposed to religion and Mythology. Father was arrested anyway and later freed along with Savarkar and others, without any blemish. He left politics and started his legal practice ( he was BA,LLB ) as a criminal lawyer at Hyderabad High Court, as a normal citizen.

A Shiva Temple was built on the land surrounding our Bungalow and every Mahashivratri, there used to be big celebration. Temple was open to all public. This also influenced me greatly. Later, when I studied for my ” Jyotish Praveen” examination ( as a Hobby), I read many Astrological and Religious books.

The second reason was, I liked the magic and trick scenes in these movies and would willingly volunteer to accompany the old and the elderly family members ( a joint family), to such films as their escort, during my school days. These childhood influences cultivated my liking for religious films.

Few years back, I had run a series on this Blog, titled ” Bhajan Mala- The Golden 50s”. Today’s song is from the balance of songs which remained after discussing 12 songs in that series.

Among the many scriptures on Hinduism, I like ‘ Bhagwad geeta’ the most. BHAGVAD GEETA is one of our cultural heritage books.It is a part of Mahabharat and is also a part of Bramhopnishad-which is a scripture on Yogas.

This is a dialogue between Lord Shri Krishna and Arjun. The legend says that when Kauravas and Pandavas stood opposite each others for a war on Kurukshetra, Dhritrashtra,the blind father of Kauravas asked Sanjay-who had the divine power of seeing the war at Kurukshetra- to describe him the war happennings. Sanjay starts and in the course of his reporting,the entire Geeta too is narrated.

Without going into the details further,enough to stress that Lord Shrikrishna explains to Arjuna that,whenever there is a decline of Dharma and righteousness,He takes birth from age to age (sambhavami yuge yuge),to protect the virueous,destroy evil-doers and to reestablish Dharma and righteousness.
This is described in the IV chapter,stanzas 7 and 8 in Bhagvadgeeta thus-

यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत ।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् ॥४-७॥
परित्राणाय साधूनां विनाशाय च दुष्कृताम् ।
धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे ॥४-८॥
Yada yada hi dharmasya glanirbhavati bharata
Abhythanamadharmasya tadatmanam srijamyaham
Paritranaya sadhunan vinashay cha dushkritam
Dharmasangsthapanarthay sambhabami yuge yuge

The meaning of these two slokas is—
Whenever there is decay of righteousness, O Bharata,
And there is exaltation of unrighteousness, then I Myself come forth ;
For the protection of the good, for the destruction of evil-doers,
For the sake of firmly establishing righteousness, I am born from age to age.

This is how Swami Vivekananda himself translated the shlokas-
“Whenever virtue subsides and wickedness prevails, I manifest Myself. To establish virtue, to destroy evil, to save the good, I come from Yuga (age) to Yuga.”

Generally it is found that people respect Religion,but when it comes to even obvious details,they are confused. For example, how many people can tell correctly whether Shri Ram came first or Krishna,on this Earth ? Or, how many people can tell the names of the 10 Avatars of God ? Or how many people know the names of the wives of Lakshman, Bharat and Shatrughna-all brothers of Shri Ram ? Or how many can even tell the names of 4 Yugas or 4 Vedas ?

Here are The God’s 10 Avtaars serially-

1. Matsya-(The fish) in Satyayug
2. Koorma-(The Tortoise)-
3. Varah-(The Boar)-
4. Narsimha-(Half Lion-Half man)-
5. Waman-(The Dwarf) in Treta Yug
6.Parshuram-(The warrior saint)-
7. Shri Ram in Dwapar yug
8. Shri krishna in Dwapar Yug
9. Balram ( In North India, Gautam Budha and in Eastern India Chaitanya Mahaprabhu are considered instead of Balram)
10. Kalki (yet to come) in Kali Yug

Actually,one can see the Human Evolution and the history of Human race in these Avtars.I feel that they are indicative of Development of Human Race and their Sociological structure.

The First 4 are the evolution of Life and Humans
Waman is about the Domination of Bramhins.
Parshuram is about the Conflict of the Rulers and the Pontiff.
Shri Rama as the Ideal King,how he should be.
Balrama is to stress importance of Agriculture.
Shri Krishna to teach us how to live Life and finally
Kalki will indicate self-destruction of Human Beings.

This is how I interprete these Avtars. ( By the way, the pairs are Lakshman-Urmila, Bharat-Mandavi and Shatrughna-Shrutikirti. The 4 vedas are Rig-,Saam-,Atarva- and yajur- ved).

When the religion was in danger, Lord Vishnu took the avtaar of Waman. Who was Waman and what did he do ?

Vamana was born to Aditi and Kashyapa. He is the twelfth of the Adityas. Vamana is also the younger brother of Indra.

King Mahabali was a generous man who engaged in severe austerities and penance and won the praise of the world. This praise, from his courtiers and others, led him to think of himself as the greatest person in the world. He believed that he can help any one and can donate whatever they ask. Even though he became benevolent, he became pompous of his activities and forgot that the almighty is above him. Dharma says that one should do his duty and helping others is the duty of a king. Mahabali was a devoted worshiper of the Lord. The story is an ample example that the almighty, the Parabrahma is neutral and unbiased; he only tries to balance nature. He showers his divine light to all, irrespective of what they do.The Bhagwat Puran describes that Vishnu descended as the Vamana avatar to restore the authority of Indra over the heavens, as it had been taken by Mahabali, a benevolent Asur King. Bali was the great grandson of Hiranykashyapu, the grand son of Pralhad and son of Virochana. Waman avatar is the first human form avtar of Vishnu,among the Dashavatars.

Vamana, in the guise of a short Bramhin carrying a wooden umbrella, went to the king to request three paces of land. Mahabali consented, against the warning of his guru, Shukracharya. Vamana then revealed his identity and enlarged to gigantic proportions to stride over the three worlds. He stepped from heaven to earth with the first step, from earth to the netherworld with the second. King Mahabali, unable to fulfill his promise, offered his head for the third. Vamana then placed his foot and gave the king immortality for his humility.

In worshiping Mahabali and his ancestor Prahláda, he conceded sovereignty of Pataal, the netherworld. Some texts also report that Vamana did not step into the netherworld, and instead gave its rule to Bali. In giant form, Vamana is known as Trivikrama.

Just before King Mahabali was pushed out of this earth, he was given permission by Vamana to visit his people once a year. The Onam festival is a celebration of welcoming Mahabali home to his lost kingdom. During this festival, beautiful floral decorations are made in every house and boat races are held throughout Kerala. A twenty-one-course feast is the most important part of the Onam festival.

Mahabali symbolizes ahankar, the three feet symbolizes the three planes of existence (Jagrat, Swapna and Sushupthi) and final step is on his head which elevates from all three states and he attains moksha.

Film Waman Awataar-55 was made by Bombay Film Productions. It was produced by B.C.Patel and Raman B. Desai- who also directed it. The music was by the Mythological film expert, Avinash Vyas, ably assisted by Sanmukh Babu Upadhyay. The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy, Trilok Kapoor,Sapru, Bipin Gupta, Praveen kumar, Jankidas etc etc.

The story of Sanmukh Babu Upadhya, who assisted the MD in this film, is not uncommon in Hindi film industry.

I am sure, not many will be knowing about this composer. He was one of those artistes in the film industry who had immense talent but Luck did not favour them.

Sanmukh Babu Upadhyaya was born on 13-9-1920 in Surat,Gujarat. His father Manibhai and brother Dinanath were Music experts, thus Sanmukh had Music as a tradional asset. Soon he acquired expertise in playing Jaltarang and Violin. Later in his life he became a well known Violin player of Gujarat. In 1940, he met Gujarat’s famous singer Master Vasant ( also from Surat) and he had a chance to play his instruments in the courts of Porbander, Jamnagar, Baroda, Udaipur, Bikaner, Bhopal etc.

In 1942 Sanmukh Babu came to Bombay. He happened to meet Dinkar Rao Amembal, an official in All India Radio,by chance. Sanmukh Babu was taken in A.I.R. services and he served for next 5 years.. He also went to Africa for one year to do stage shows.

After coming back, he joined Avinash Vyas as an assistant in the work of a Gujarati film and later in the famous Hindi film, “Har Har Mahadev”-1950. He was an expert in Jaltarang and Violin. His service at A.I.R. had given him exposure to many famous musicians and this helped him a lot. Next few years he participated in many Ballets and Dance Dramas in Gujarati and Hindi, along with Avinash Vyas.

He got his first break as an independent Music Director of Hindi film “Lalkaar”-56, with the help of Kavi Pradeep .He gave music to 7 Hindi films- Lalkar-56, Amar Singh Rathod-57, Sati Pariksha-57, Naag Padmini-57, Raaj Pratidnya- 58, Amar prem-60 and Hamir Hath-64.

When it became clear that he was getting only C grade films-action or Historicals- and no big banner ever offered him a film,he left film industry. Next few years he devoted his time in Directing Ballets and Dance Dramas in Hindi and Gujarati. He cut several private records of his music. He also gave solo performances of Violin all over the country.

It is unfortunate that his melodious music did not get enough opportunities or recognition, in the changing environment of film music of the 60s and the 70s, but he had no regrets. Sanmukh Babu Upadhyaya died on 24-2-1984, simply adding yet another name to the list of talented but less known composers.

Let us now enjoy the video song from this film.

Missing Films of 1960s – 84
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Another very obscure and unfamiliar film; and another wonderful set of songs that probably have not seen the light of the day. The experience keeps reiterating itself.

The film is ‘Takht Aur Talwar’ from 1970. And the song – an exuberant challenge, rendered by Suman Kalyanpur.  The production company is titled as Kanchanganga Films, Bombay. And practically no other information available, as far as the producer, director and the star cast is concerned.

Five songs are listed for this film, with indication that there may be more. The music director is Avinash Vyas. Of the five songs listed, three are solo songs sung by Suman Kalyanpur and one is a solo by Asha Bhosle. The fifth song is a qawwaali in the voice of Krishna Kalle and Mahendra Kapoor. The qawwaali does not have a gramophone record no. listed, and so possibly it is still in the untraceable domain. The rest of the four songs are very much available. I present today, one of the solos by Suman Kalyanpur.

There are two songwriters listed for this film – Madan Bharti and Shamim Jaipuri, both having penned two songs each. This song is from the pen of Madan Bharti.

The four solo songs are very much available on the YT, however sometimes difficult to search and locate. I think there is an engineered deficiency in the search routines on YouTube. It has been my experience on multiple occasions, that even when you put in the exact matching words in the search box, the correct song is not returned. I have a feeling that YT’s search routines are designed to bring more of your patterns of earlier searches, and possibly paid upload items that crowd the top of the list. The song is very much existing in the system, but still that name simply does not come up in search results. Recently, another friend on the YT showed me a better way to reach such obscure songs. She suggested going to the hindigeetmala.net web site, and to call for the list of songs for the film. All songs of the film get listed. And if the song’s audio or video clip is available on the YT, then a special icon appears next to the song. We can then reach the YT address of that song, by clicking on this special icon. In recent past, I have resorted to this method. If the song is posted on YT, then going via the hindigeetmala.net is a much better method to locate the song.

And so, ‘Takht Aur Talwar’ from 1970, makes its debut on our blog today. Notching up the 84th episode, seems like we are well settled to score a century on this series. Coming up shortly – 🙂 . Meanwhile enjoy this solo by Suman Kalyanpur.

 

Song – Mere Saamne Na Aana  (Takht Aur Talwar) (1970) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Madan Bharti, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

mere saamne na aana
mere saamne na aana
rehna door door
varna takra ke ho jaaoge choor choor

hastiyaan laakhon ki mitti me mila di hum ne
hastiyaan laakhon ki mitti me mila di hum ne
hosh me aaya nahin jis ko pila di hum ne
hosh me aaya nahin jis ko pila di hum ne
aaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaa
aaaaaa aaaa aaaa aaa
main to qayaamat jaisi hoor hoor hoor
mere saamne na aana
mere saamne na aana
rehna door door
varna takra ke ho jaaoge choor choor
mere saamne na aana

waar nazron ka agar dil ke paar ho jaaye
waar nazron ka agar dil ke paar ho jaaye
shikaar karne waala khud shikaar ho jaaye
shikaar karne waala khud shikaar ho jaaye
aaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaa
aaaaaa aaaa aaaa aaa
kehti hai duniya mujhe noor noor noor
mere saamne na aana
mere saamne na aana
rehna door door
varna takra ke ho jaaoge choor choor
mere saamne na aana

meri mehfil mein jo aaye na sambhalne paaye
meri mehfil mein jo aaye na sambhalne paaye
meri zulfon me ulajh ke na nikalne paaye
meri zulfon me ulajh ke na nikalne paaye
aaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaa
aaaaaa aaaa aaaa aaa
kis ki majaal dekhe ghoor ghoor ghoor
mere saamne na aana
mere saamne na aana
rehna door door
varna takra ke ho jaaoge choor choor
mere saamne na aana

Blog Day : 3704 Post No. : 14628

Today (8 september 2018) is the 85 birth anniversary of Asha Bhonsle.

Lots and lots have been written about her over the years. Most of these writings include popular songs sung by her over the decades. There are articles that tell us about the top “n” number of songs sung by her.

This blog already has more than 2500 Asha Bhonsle songs. The 6000th song in the blog was dedicated to her.

Legends do not become legends just because of their skills in their chosen field- viz singing powess in this case. There are far many other things that come into play. Asha Bhonsle has been a very strong character, a survivor against heavy odds, and a fighter to the core who made it big despite facing situations that would have crushed lesser mortals.

Unlike most, she kept on reinventing herself with time. Her singing in 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s are not the same. She added new feathers to her cap in every decade.

Most HFM legends fail to impress when they are interviewd on radio or TV and they are not able to express themselves as we would like to see them. But Asha Bhonsle is an exception. She is a great conversationalist who enlivens any talk show or interview that she participates in. Youtube has several of her interviews/ talk shows. In this respect she was like Kishore Kumar, who was a wonderful conversationalist. Here is a link where Asha Bhonsle talks about Kishore Kumar.

She was a great socialiser of course. She would socialise not just with her fellow artists, but their family members as well and would forge friendships that would last for decades. One very interesting friendship that she and her siblings forged was with Sivaji Ganeshan. Asha Bhonsle had gone to Madras (now Chennai) for a recording in 1960s. There she watched a Tamil movie called “Paava Mannippu”. After coming back to Bombay (now Mumbai), she told her siblings that they HAD to watch this actor Sivaji Ganeshan. So they all went to Aurora Theatre in Bombay where this movie was being screened.

During interval, they all realised that they were crying though they did not understand a word of Tamil in the movie. They all felt that Sivaji Ganeshan reminded them of their father late Dinanath Mangeshkar.

The next day, they contacted Sivaji Ganeshan and told him that they were coming to Madras to meet him. They flew to Madras, arrived at this home, hugged him, tied him rakhis and cried.

That formed a close bond with Sivaji Ganeshan and his family that lasts even today, more than fifty years later, even after the demise of Sivaji Ganeshan.

Sivaji Ganeshan’s wife Kamlaa Ganeshan did not know Hindi or English, but only Tamil. Still Lata and Asha Bhonsle would stay engaged in conversation with her for hours, Kamala Ganeshan in Tamil and Lata/Asha in Hindi. They would shop together and spend lots of time together.

On the occasion of her 85th birth anniversary, here is a song from “Bhaagyawaan”(1953). Film Bhagyawaan-53 was produced by Mahipat Rai and Anupchand Shah and directed by Datta Dharmadhikari for Roopkamal Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Nirupa Roy, Raja Nene, Radhakishan, Yashodhara Katju, Ratan Kumar, Qamar, Baby Mala, Alhad, Balraj Sahni, Shakuntala etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered.

This second song from “Bhaagyawaan”(1953) is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Neelkanth Tiwari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

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

We take this opportunity to wish Asha Bhonsle a happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.


Song-Naari nahin hai sapna naari nahin kahaani(Bhaagyawaan)(1953) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Neelkanthh Tiwari, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

naari nahin hai sapna aa aa
naari nahin kahaani
naari ki god mein hi ee
palti hai zindagaani
naari nahin hai sapna aa aa
naari nahin kahaani
naari ki god mein hi ee
palti hai zindagaani

naari ki zindagi to
kaanton mein hi pali hai
naari ki zindagi to
kaanton mein hi pali hai
aansu ke jal mein phooli ee
ban kar kamal kali hai ae ae
aansu ke jal mein phooli ee
ban kar kamal kali hai
phir bhi zahar wo peekar
amrit hi baant’ti hai
aa aa aa aa aa aa
phir bhi zahar wo pee kar
amrit hi baant’ti hai
wo phool ki pankhuriyaa aa aa
lohe ko kaat’ti hai
lohe ko kaat’ti hai
naari nahin hai sapna aa aa
naari nahin kahaani
naari ki god mein hi ee
palti hai zindagaani

sab kuchh wo jeet kar bhi
sab kuchh wo haarti hai
hai sneh ki wo devi ee ee
mamta ki aarti hai
ghar ghar ki hai wo lakshmi
sindoor ban ke damke
mauqa pade to choodi
talwaar ban ke chamke
talwaar ban ke chamke
naari nahin hai sapna aa
naari nahin kahaani
naari nahin hai sapna aa
naari nahin kahaani

Missing Films of 1960s – 72
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s film of the 1960s being introduced is ‘Badmaash’ from 1969.  A very obscure and unfamiliar film, that is known only by its presence in the Geet Kosh. But I was surprised when I checked out the cast. This film belongs to the Sheikh Mukhtar genre. His films may not be blockbusters, but still they are known only because they are Sheikh Mukhtar films. Even so, this film is lesser known in comparison.

It is well known that Sheikh Mukhtar would be churning out films very regularly, but he never established a production house that sustained. Practically all his films are produced under different banners. This film is from the banner of Saras Chitra, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The star cast of this film reads like Sheikh Mukhtar, Helen, Chandrashekhar, Padma, NA Ansari, Vishwa Mehra, Dalda, Shashimala, Satyen Kappu, Jilani, Chandrakala, Surya Kumar, Bhagwan, Rachna, Jayshree, Satish Vyas, Nawab, Jaswant, Ajeet, Abdul Sattar, Nanak, Motu, and Nandini Desai. The regulars are all there – Chandrashekhar, Helen, NA Ansari. And then of course the lesser known regulars. A nearly new name for that era, which appears in this list is Satyen Kappu. We have known him from his character roles in films of 1970s and onward. On checking his filmography, we find that he makes his debut in this film, in all likelihood. I say it this way, because the available information for character artists is not very accurate. This is the earliest film in which his name is listed.

There are only four songs listed in the Geet Kosh, for this film. All the songs are from the pen of Anjaan. The music director is Avinash Vyas. A little surprising to read his name associated with this film. Not that he does not have other B/C grade films in his portfolio. But most of his films are either religious / mythological or fantasy / costume drama. ‘Badmaash’ seems to be his only stunt / crime drama film.

The singing voice is Krishna Kalle. As I have been reviewing the films of second half of 1960s, I find her name appear quite regularly in songs of B/C grade films of that era. This song seems to be a club/bar song, and the performer appears to be drunk herself. Given the cast of actors, it would seem that Helen is the female lead in this film, opposite to Chandrashekhar. It is possible that this song may be performed by her. Another possibility is Padma, a name that I think refers to Padma Khanna, who was also a leading dance item performer of that era. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about the film and its songs.

Rendering by Krishna Kalle is just too good. These types of songs were a monopoly of Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt – actually more of Asha Bhosle in that period of latter part of 1960s. With this song, one can see the potential that Krishna Kalle had to compete with Asha Bhosle.  But well, history is history. Listen and enjoy this definitive performance by her.

 

Song – Utha Palken Mila Nazren  (Badmaash) (1969) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
behakta hai
agar ye dil
bura kya hai behakne de
utha palken
mila nazren

idhar to dekh
kaisi pyaas
machli hai nigaahon mein
idhar to dekh
kaisi pyaas
machli hai nigaahon mein
dhadakte dil ko le le
shokh baahon ki panaahon mein
mohabbat ki
nai khushboo
se ye saansen mehakne de
utha palken
ay
mila nazren

ye maana
saagar o meena ka
dilkash daur hota hai
ye maana
saagar o meena ka
dilkash daur hota hai
magar aankhon se peene ka
mazaa kuchh aur hota hai
haseen palkon
ke saaye mein
naye saagar khanakne de
utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
behakta hai
agar ye dil
bura kya hai behakne de
utha palken
mila nazren

उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें
ये पैमाने छलकने दे
उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें
ये पैमाने छलकने दे
बहकता है
अगर ये दिल
बुरा क्या है बहकने दे
उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें

इधर तो देख
कैसी प्यास
मचली है निगाहों में
इधर तो देख
कैसी प्यास
मचली है निगाहों में
धड़कते दिल को ले ले
शोख बाहों की पनाहों में
मोहब्बत की
नई खुशबू
से ये सांसें महकने दे
उठा पलकें

मिला नज़रें

ये माना
सागर ओ मीना का
दिलकश दौर होता है
ये माना
सागर ओ मीना का
दिलकश दौर होता है
मगर आँखों से पीने का
मज़ा कुछ और होता है
हसीन पलकों
के साये में
नए सागर खनकने दे
उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें
ये पैमाने छलकने दे
बहकता है
अगर ये दिल
बुरा क्या है बहकने दे
उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें

Blog Day : 3592 Post No. : 14344

Today is the birth anniversary of playback singer Madhubala Jhaveri. She was born this day in 1935.

Madhubala was born into a musically inclined family of renowned artists. Her mother, Smt Hirabai Jhaveri and her aunt Smt Sharmila Margaonkar, were both well known singers, and often performed on All India Radio. Although brought up in an atmosphere of music, she was initially not inclined to pursue it as a career. In fact after her matriculation, she joined the JJ School of Arts, deciding for herself that the devotion and time required for classical music training was not what she wanted. But the fate had planned otherwise. In a chance encounter, music director Hansraj Behl heard her sing in a private gathering, and was immediately attracted to her voice. He was searching for a new voice to sing for him in his upcoming film ‘Apni Izzat’ (1952). He invited her to sing for this film.

Her debut was very impressive, and the industry immediately took notice of her. It is said that at that time, the refrain that was expressed in the media was, that “. . .another Lata has been born”. She had an active singing career during the decade of 1950s, and worked with many mainstream music directors of that era. Her voice was termed as sweet and pleasing, and her diction and articulation was wonderful. However, her voice could not sustain the higher octaves, somewhat limiting her range. Her voice was considered a perfect foil for Talat Mehmood, and she has rendered many memorable duets with him.

Her career faded away in the early 1960s. After a couple of renditions in 1961, we then hear her voice  for one last time in the 1968 film ‘London Express’ (no records available in public domain so far). After being in oblivion for almost four and a half decades, she passed away on Sep 11th in 2013.

The song I have selected for today’s remembrance is a solo from the 1952 film ‘Raajrani Damyanti’. The music is by Avinash Vyas and the words are written by Neelkanth Tiwari.

The film is a mythological offering from the banner of Roopkamal Chitra, Bombay. It is produced by Mahipatrai Shah and Anoop Chand Shah, and is directed by Raje Nene. The main cast of actors includes Nirupa Roy, Trilok Kapoor, Usha Kiran, Vikas, Baby Tabassum, Ratan Kumar, Prakash, Basant Kanse, Shakeela, Shakuntala, Uma Devi, Yashwant Dave, and Ram Singh amongst others.

This song is a lovely expression of a heart in love, inviting the moon and the stars to come and light up the life. The words by Neelkanth Tiwari evoke a very romantic ambience. It is a wonderful pleasure to listen to this song.

There is one word in the second antaraa that I am not able to decipher. I request other readers and friends with keener ears to please help identify the missing word.

“Sant Raghu”(1957) was produced by M K Kapadiya and directed by Chandrakant for Kanak Productions, Bombay. This “bhakti pradhan” movie had Nirupa Roy, Anand Kumar, Ulhas, Bipin Gupta, Lalita Pawar, S N Tripathi, Manorama, Babu Raje, Tuntun, Maujoo, Radheshyam, Bhagwan Sinha, R S Dubey, Champak Laala, Sheila Vaz, Rajkumar, Amrit etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it that had the voices of as many as six singers in them.

One song from the movie has been covered in the blog and that song had the voices of Lata and Talat Mehmood. Here is the second song from “Sant Raghu”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

The song is about a lady missing her beloved in a moonlit light. So it is a “missing the beloved” as well as a “chaayaageet” genre of song, which is best sung and heard at night time. That is why the writeup of this song is being posted at chhaayaageet time. 🙂

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


Song-Neel gagan mein chanda chamke (Sant Raghu)(1957) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

aaja re ae
ab to aa jaa aa
mera dil
tere dil ko pukaare
dil se dil ko milaa jaa

neel gagan mein chanda chamke
rut aayi singaar ki
sapan suhaana tod na jaana
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki ee
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki

chhail chhabeeli
rut rangeeli
ham ko kare ishaare
chhail chhabeeli
rut rangeeli
ham ko kare ishaare
aaj miley to kabhi na bichhde
kabhi na howe nyaare
ankhiyaan phhadke
jiyara dhhadke
beete na raat bahaar ki
sapan suhaana tod na jaana
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki ee
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki

ik dil tera
ik dil mera
aur ye samaa suhaana
ik dil tera
ik dil mera
aur ye samaa suhaana
tera dil hai shama ki lau to
mera dil parwaana
gup chup rehna
kuchh nahin kehna
nazar lage na sansaar ki
sapan suhaana tod na jaana
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki ee
kasam tumhen mere pyaar ki
