Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 74
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 25 July 2012) saw three songs from three different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6308 Inhi logon ne le leenha dupatta mora Himmat(1941) 2 songs covered out of 10
6309 Suno suno he nar naari Aage Badho(1947) Movie YIPPEED by now
6309 Jawaan jawaan husn ke rangeen ye kaafile Adventures of Robinhood (1965) Movie YIPPEED by now

It can be seen that two movies (out of three) whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date (25 July 2012) have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with just one movie which is eligible for Blog Ten Years today (25 July 2022).

The eligible movie is “Himmat”(1941).

‘Himmat'(1941) was directed by Roop K Shorey for Kamal Movietone Limited. The movie had Ragni aka Ragini, Manorama, Majnu, Beg aka Baig, Zahoor Shah, Radha, Ghulam Qadir, Maalaa, Ramesh, Ranchhod, Jaan, Malti etc in it.

‘Himmat’ (1941) had ten songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from ‘Himmat’ (1941) to appear in the blog.

HFGK is silent about the singers of the song. But going by the comments posted by some knowledgeable readers on YouTube, I have considered Umrazia Begam and Karimdad Khan as the singers of this song. Aziz Kashmiri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Gobindram.

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

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

My first real jaan-pehchaan with this actor happened in 1970. The film – ‘Anand’. He plays the role of Dr. Prakash Kulkarni, friend of Dr. Bhaskar Bannerji (Amitabh Bachchan). His role was impressive and touching. At the climax of the film, when Anand is battling for his last breaths, Bhaskar is not present. He has gone on a last ditch hunt for a miracle medicine. Prakash is the doctor present in the room besides Renu (Sumita Sanyal), attending to Anand. It is 4.15 early morning.The final moments arrive. Anand requests for the spool tape player to be put on. Prakash realizes – the worst is about to happen. He asks the attending nurse to prepare an injection. And while the tape is playing Anand calls out for Babu Moshai, and his breathing ceases. Prakash is stunned and cannot move. There is horror and grief and dejection writ large on his face. These moments, this expression, the welling of tears in his eyes, and the unwilling acceptance of a final defeat – left an imprint on my mind strong enough to now remember the name of this actor – Ramesh Deo.

And then, the familiar face with now a recognized name – I could see him in many more films that followed. I would also become familiar with his earlier roles in Hindi films starting with ‘Aarti’ in 1962. I would see these earlier films, later as reruns or on Doordarshan. And somehow, he always made an impact on my mind with his performances. In ‘Khilona’ (1970), as Kishore, the wayward ghar-jamaai (resident son-in-law) of the Thakur Suraj Singh’s (Bipin Gupta) household, he is hell bent on throwing out a pregnant Chand (Mumtaz) for obvious inheritance gains. In 1971, one sees him in ‘Mere Apne’ as Arun Gupta, a low middle income householder, who tricks an aged Anandi Devi (Meena Kumari) to come and live in his home as an unpaid full time servant. In ‘Joru Ka Ghulam’ (1972), he is Ramesh, the scheming nephew of the rich businessman Shyamlal (Om Prakash), who continuously siphons off part of whatever money he handles in the business.

Then in ‘Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), he plays the role of barrister P Amarnath, one of the three baddies (along with Harishchandra (Ajit) and Ramakant (Krishan Dhawan)), who commit a fraud at a bank and implicate Ashok (Dharmendra). Later, when Ashok returns and plans revenge against these three, he first destroys them financially through stock market wrangling. At this point in the film, there is a scene with an excellent performance by Ramesh Deo. As the news comes in that all their investment is lost at the stock market, it effects the brain of barrister Amarnath, and he goes mad. There is a two minutes long sequence with an editing gap of 15 seconds in between, which is performed by him. He goes mad, he cries, he laughs, he proclaims he wants to be rich, and then he runs out of the office room. He meets Ashok outside. Ashok is supposedly dead. So there is now a reaction of fear and horror, he runs away from him, crashes into a parked car, then runs off on to the road and is hit by another car. This sequence which is about 700 feet of reel length is supposedly shot as a single performance sequence. His histrionics are impressive and authentic.

Ramesh Deo, a veteran of almost 300 Hindi films, about 200 Marathi films, 30 Marathi stage plays with almost a thousand live performances – passed away on 2nd February earlier this year. Besides the impressive portfolio of stage and screen performances, he also has to his credit being the producer of many TV serials, documentaries and approximately 250 ad films through his own production company – Ramesh Deo Productions. A part of this body of work was also directed by him.

He traces his ancestry to the Rajput clans of Jodhpur. His great grandfather and grandfather were engineers who were part of the team that built the Jodhpur palace. Later they were invited by Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur, for constructing newer parts of the city. His grandfather was appointed as the chief engineer of the project. Later, his father, who studied law, became the legal advisor in the city administration of Kolhapur.

Ramesh was born in Kolhapur on 30th January, 1926. After his normal school and college education, he got introduced to films through Dinkar Patel, a Marathi film maker, who was a family friend. Once when Dinkar Patel was filming in Kolhapur, Ramesh and a group of his friends went to see the shooting. Quite unexpectedly, Dinkar Patel invited the group to join a scene in a college sequence being filmed, as students. The film was ‘Paatlachi Por’ (released in 1951). As per Ramesh, it was by this chance participation that the film bug bit him, and he decided to make acting as a career. This is in 1950.

He started his career as a junior artist and soon graduated to featured roles. His first notable performance that received critical acclaim was as a villain in ‘Andhala Magto Ek Dola’ (1956). Later, he signed up as a villain for ‘Saata Janmaachaa Sobati’, but was offered the lead instead when the hero was removed. Never typecast, many of his films’ publicity material would have a teaser asking audiences to guess whether he was the hero or villain!

Through the 1950s, Ramesh confined himself to Marathi cinema and stage, Then happened a chance encounter. The drama troupe he was working with was traveling in the rural Maharashtra. Having tea at a roadside tea shop, he realized that no one knew him as an actor. He felt let down within, that after having worked in the industry for almost a decade, he was a nobody for the common man. The same common man would readily recognize and acknowledge Hindi film stars. And he made up his mind to move to Hindi cinema also.

His first role in a Hindi film was in ‘Aarti’ 1962. And after that there was no looking back. In film after film in the sixties, he made a mark for himself, and a firm position in the Hindi film industry as a character artist. At 96, when he passed away, he was still actively working. In a manner of speaking, he died literally with his boots on.

The song being presented today is from the film ‘Love And Murder’ from 1966. The film is produced under the banner of Adarshlok, Bombay and is directed by Raja Paranjape. The brief star cast is listed as Prithviraj, Ramesh Deo, Jaimala, Heeralal, Helen, Kammo, Edwina, and Chandrakant Gokhale. Ramesh Deo plays the role of Ranjit, apparently a small time con-man, but in reality he is the unknown boss of the underworld gang. The plot of the film is available on MuVyz website at Love And Murder – Plot.

On screen, the song is performed by Ramesh Deo. The quality of the video is not very good, and I am not able to identify the lady companion for whom Ramesh is lip syncing this song. I request other knowledgeable readers to please help identify the lady actor in this video clip.

Ramesh Deo – a lasting presence in Marathi and Hindi cinema. A career that goes from 1950 to 2022. Seventy two years of active work in the cinema and theater industry – this must be a record of some sort. He had completed 96 years of his life’s journey when he bid the forever good bye to the world. As mentioned earlier, literally with his boots on – still actively working when he passed away.

He leaves behind his wife and two sons. Seema Deo, his spouse of 59 years, is a lasting romance of his life. This must also be a record of some sorts – the two appeared in more than 50 films as husband wife or as lovers. Ramesh had first seen her in a suburban train while heading to a studio and realized that she too was looking for film work. “That day, I got a plum assignment. We introduced ourselves, became friends, and soon got married,” he had said. Today, their children, actor-filmmaker Ajinkya Deo and filmmaker Abhinay Deo (‘Delhi Belly’) have done them proud.

Peace and divinity be with you Ramesh Deo. It has been an especially long innings. You will always be remembered for the huge variety of roles that you presented.

Good Bye.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 52
————————————————————————————–

This date (13 June) ten years ago (2012) saw five songs from five different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6072 Jab ankhiyaan pehli baar milin Paraaye Bas Mein(1946) 3 songs covered out of 7 by now
6073 Chanda taley muskuraaye jawaaniyaan Chandi Rani (1953) 1 song covered out of 9 by now

6076 Subah hoti hai shaam hoti hai Aplam Chaplam (1961) 3 songs covered out of by now

We can see from the table that two movies out of five whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with three movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (13 June 2022).

“Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) is one of the three eligible movies. This movie was directed by by Dawood Chand for India United Pictures, Lahore. The movie had Pran, Asha Posley, Ramlal, Zubeida, Zahoor Shaah, Ghulam Khadir, Maala, Deepak, Wazir Begum, Nazar etc in it.

“Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) had 7 songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Zeenat Begam. Though HFGK is silent about the music director and lyricist, the music sounds typical of Vinod (who was one of the two music diretors of the movie, other being Niaz Hussain Shami. The movie had two lyricists as well, namely Aziz Kashmiri and Tufail Hoshiarpuri. It is easy to guess that Aziz Kashmiri , a regular collaborator of Vinod has to be the lyricist. Our regular Mr Sadanand Kamath also feels the same about the music director and lyricist of this song.

Only the audio of the song is available. My uess is that the song was picturised on Asha Posley, the heroine of the movie. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Om Prakash Chibber- better known as Om Prakash- was an actor who was seen mainly in character roles, in movies of the late 1950s till the very end of his career i.e. till 1994, “Bhai No 1” that released in 2000 came two years after his passing. He was only 78 at the time of his death.

But telling Om Prakash was a character actor is wrong, just because I saw him first as Sharmila Tagore’s ‘jijaji’ in the hilarious, Hrishikesh Mukherjee directed “Chupke Chupke” in 1975 (I am sure this is a movie I first watched on Doordarshan). He was adorable in this song. Similarly I saw him as Ramlal – father to Mehmood, Kalpana and Rajasree- in “Pyar Kiye Jaa” (again on DD). He was amazing through that film and this scene from “Pyar kiye jaa” (1966) was a standout. There are hundreds of such scenes that I can list out here as an example of what an outstanding actor this artiste was.

He began his career as a radio broadcaster in All India Radio in 1937. I have seen a biographical video somewhere on YouTube which talks of his journey from radio to films and how Dalsukh Pancholi gave him his first break in films in the 1944 release “Daasi” after which he was a regular in Hindi films. Here I should apologize for my ignorance, as to whether Om Prakashji has ever played a hero in any of his films. I do know that his was the central character in many movies where a Sanjay Khan or a Navin Nischol (just to give 2 examples) were the romantic lead as in “Das Lakh” or “Buddha Mil Gaya” . Can anyone forget the characters he played in “Namak Halal”, “Sharaabi”, “Zanjeer”, “Loafer”, “Howrah Bridge”, ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne”, “Azaad”, and and and hundreds of others.

He may have had songs filmed on him in the initial years of his career but the following songs have stayed in my mind

Song Movie (Year) Date of post in the blog
Iint ki dukki paan ka ikka Howrah Bridge (1958) 5 February 2009
Oy buddho lambo lambo Buddha Mil Gaya (1971) 3 march 2009
Aayo kahaan se ghanshyam Buddha Mil Gaya (1971) 12 may 2009
Teri patli kamar teri baali umar Dus Laakh (1966) 31 October 2012
Ajab teri kaareegari re kartaar Dus Laakh (1966) 7 September 2013
Suno re saadho ye sansaaram ultam paltam ho gaya Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thhi (1970) 21 February 2018

Meri patni mujhe sataati hai is a song that I discovered today.

He has had Manna Dey, Mohd. Rafi, Mahendra Kapoor etc giving playback for him. Today we see him singing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice, a song written by Aziz Kashmiri and tuned by Shankar Jaikishan.

“International Crook” (1974) was a movie produced and directed by Pachhi who also played the role of Jamal Pasha in that movie. I have read in some post, in our blog, that Pachhi was Om Prakash’s brother, and when (by chance) I saw the movie recently I was 100% sure (for sometime at least) that Omji was playing a double role. Then it occurred to me that this person had a huge paunch and hence cannot be Om Prakashji.

“International Crook” had six songs of which the blog has this song which was Avinashji’s contribution on the occasion of Dharmendra’s 85th birthday. Today’s song is to recall Om Prakashji, it is 24 years since he left this mortal world.


Song-Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna (International Crook)(1974) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Aziz Kashmiri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna

badhti dekhi aazaad se

arre sabko milkar rote dekha
kya dhobi kya naai

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 8
————————————————————————————–

Today 16th January’2022 is the ninetysixth birth anniversary (16.01.1926 – 28.01.2007) of Omkar Prasad Nayyar whom we know by the name of O.P. Nayyar.

His name and music need no introduction. He was the ‘legend’ and has given us many songs to listen and cherish forever. He crafted a special place for his music in the annals of HFM and his music will be loved till it lives on this planet.

I am big fan of OPN’s music and thought that I was aware of all his movies where he composed music for. So, when I got this mail from our dear Prakash ji containing a song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’ I was surprised as the name of the movie didn’t ring any song in my mind. I feel very awkward or rather shameful of myself that I was not aware of this movie and its songs.

Well, so I decided to present this song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’, and that way I can listen the other songs of this movie too.

This movie made its debut on the blog on 09.12.2009 with its song ‘Zaraa dekhiye meri saadgi’ and after that only two songs from this movie have been added on the blog so far. One on 16.01.2012 and one on 18.11.2017.

Today after ten years of 16.01.2012 the movie becomes eligible for one of its songs under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge – 2012-2022’. (Incidentally one more movie where music is composed by O.P. Nayyar is eligible today under BTYC as its’ songs were presented on 16.01.2012 and this movie is yet to be Yippeeee’ed. This movie is ‘Kalpana-1960).

Let us see the list of movies represented on the blog ten years back on 16.01.2012.

Here is the list.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai/a> Shahnaaz (1948) 6 songs posted
Beqasi hadd se jab guzar jaaye/a> Kalpana (1960) 5 songs posted

Kabhi hamaari muhabbat ka imtihaan na lo Naseehat(1967) 3 of 6 songs posted/td>
Muhabbat ho gayee jinse Kahin Din Kahin Raat(1968) All Songs covered

As mentioned above today we listen to a song from ‘Naseehat-1967’.

This movie was produced by Dara Singh (as mentioned by Atul ji in one of earlier posts).

‘Nasihat’ or ‘Naseehat-1967’ was directed by Om Patwar for ‘Deedar Movies, Bombay’.
It had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

This movie had seven soundtracks including one music track and that left us with six songs which are listed below.

Four songs out of six were written by S.H. Bihari (1,2,4 & 5 from the below list) and two songs were written by Aziz Kashmiri (3 & 6 in the below list)

As mentioned above music for this film was composed by O.P. Nayyar.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 115 # Debutant movie – International Crook-1974
——————————————————

In our mission of bringing remaining Shankar-Jaikishan movies on the blog, today we are introducing the movie ‘International Crook-1974’.

Today 8th December is also the eighty-fifth birthday of actor-producer Dharmendra (born on 8th December’1935) who acted in this movie. He is lip syncing and performing on this song from the above movie, and we will enjoy this song while we wish him a ‘very very Happy Birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead’.

‘International Crook’ (alias ‘Kaalaa Baazaar’) was directed by Pachhi for his home productions ‘Pachhi, Bombay’. Pachhi was also the producer and writer of this movie.

The movie had Dharmendra, Saira Banu, Feroz Khan and Om Prakash with Hiralal, Rajan Haksar, Sushila, Rathod, Foreign artists Azar, Lily, Ferooze, Shaheen and supported by Sunder, Manorama, Raj Mehra, Jayshree T., Habib, Sulochana Chatterjee and Jagdeep.

Screenplay of this movie was written by R.S. Chaudhury, editing of this movie was done by Shyam Rajput. Dialogues for this movie were written by Aziz Kashmiri who also wrote the lyrics for all the songs of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.07.1974 with ‘restricted viewing (A) certificate’.

Music for ‘International Crook-1974’ was composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

This movie had six songs sung by Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Kishore Kumar and Sharda as given below

Song
Crook crook crook, International crook …
Mere dil mein tu hi tu hai zaraa aitbaar kar le ae
Pyaar ki mujhpe nazar kyaa daali
Bachnaa chorbazaari se bhai jaagte rehna
Husn-e-Iran o meri jaan
Poochha jo pyaar kya hai, sharmaa ke maar daala

I had never gone through this movies’ songs earlier and it was the first time that I was listening to them. Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on-screen Dharmendra is performing with Saira Banu also with him in the picturization the song.

I liked the song and it certainly grows upon us if we listen to it again and again. Also, it has been shot at beautiful outdoor picturesque location (foreign locations, I guess 😊). This song has beautiful lyrics written by Aziz Kashmiri and music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its other songs please.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and welcome 😊 ‘International Crook-1974’ on the blog ….

(Lyrics noted are as per audio link which has three stanzas while in the video the first stanza seems to be edited or may be there is other link of full song may be).

kuchh aur zamaana kehta hai kuchh aur hai zidd mere dil ki
main baat zamaane ki maanoon ya baat sunoon apne dil ki

This was the swan song from ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ (1965) both for the singer and the music director of the song as this was their last film in Mumbai before shifting lock stock and barrel to Delhi in 1963. The playback singer was Meena Kapoor and the music director was Anil Biswas. In relation to her romantic affairs with Anil Biswas in the early 1950s, just like in the above two-liner, she was in a quandary. But her heart was adamant (aur hai zidd mere dil ki) that led to a long partnership with Anil Biswas irrespective of what the society said about their relationship.

Today, November 23rd is the 3rd Remembrance Day of Meena Kapoor. The day also happens to be 90th birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt. Both were born in the year 1930 in Bengal Presidency of British India. Both started their playback singing career in Mumbai in the year 1946 – Geeta Dutt with ‘Bhakt Prahlad’ (1946) and Meena Kapoor with ‘Pul’ (1947) in 1946 though her first released song was from ‘Eight Days’ (1946). The similarities do not end here.

Both Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor got recognition as playback singers under S D Burman – Meena Kapoor in ‘Aath Din’ (1946) and Geeta Dutt in ‘Do Bhai’ (1947). Both virtually ended their playback singing career around mid-1960s though there were few spill-over of their songs thereafter. Both had almost similar vocal cords giving an impression to the listeners that their singing voices sound more or less the same. And what was more important was that despite being in the competitive field of playback singing career, both were close friends to such an extent that they both became a part of extended family of Roys and Kapoors.

Unfortunately, their similarities of Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor did not reflect in their playback singing career. During their active years (1946-65) of playback singing career, Meena Kapoor’s output (around 175 songs) has no match with that of Geeta Dutt (around 1400 songs). Out of curiosity, I checked the year-wise growth of the playback singing career of both of them beginning with the year 1946 and up to 1955, the year from which Meena Kapoor had Anil Biswas as his life partner, almost retiring from her playback singing career except singing mainly for Anil Biswas. The statistics given in the table below reveal that Geeta Dutt was quite ahead of Meena Kapoor for all the years – both in terms of aggregate number of songs as well as films.

[Source: List of songs of Geeta Dutt from http://www.geetadutt.com counter-checked with http://www.myswar.co and list of songs of Meena Kapoor from http://www.myswar.co]

What could be the reasons for such a significant difference in their output of songs? At the outset, I could not see any reason other than ascribing it to a pure bad luck for Meena Kapoor in the sense that she was born with a voice almost similar to Geeta Dutt. And it was Geeta Dutt’s voice which seems to have been preferred by most of the music directors over that of Meena Kapoor.

In Lata Khubchandani’s article reproduced in RMIM’s Article Archive (No.324), Meena Kapoor had said that she had never been ambitious and she had not taken her music seriously. She also did not make any effort towards furtherance of her playback singing career. Her father, Bikram Kapoor who was a character actor in New Theatre, Kolkata and later in Mumbai, wanted his daughter to excel in singing only after completing her education. When she started living with Anil Biswas sometime in mid-1950s, she was happier as a housewife than pursuing the playback singing profession.

There is an interesting trivia as to how Meena Kapoor met Anil Biswas for the first time. In the interview referred to above, she had revealed that she refused to give audition to Anil Biswas when he was planning to get some songs sung by her for ‘Anokha Pyaar’ (1948) under the recommendation from his brother-in-law, Pandit Pannalal Ghosh. She had already recorded many film songs under many composers. As such, she felt that it was not necessary to her to give a fresh audition to Anil Biswas. It was her father who took a few recorded songs of her to Anil Biswas. After listening to her song, tod gaye haaye tod gaye armaan bhara dil tod gaye from ‘Khel’ (1950) under the music direction of Sajjad Hussain, Anil Biswas called her for rehearsal without audition. This incidence also shows as to how casual Meena Kapoor was in regard to her playback singing career.

Geeta Dutt on the other hand was interested in pursuing the playback singing career in films and her parents encouraged her by arranging music teachers. It was exactly at a time when Meena Kapoor’s restrictive playback singing career due to her education gave opportunity for Geeta Dutt to get a strong foothold as a playback singer as the statistics in the above table reveal. For example, S D Burman after giving two songs to Meena Kapoor in ‘Aath Din’ (1946), he switched over to Geeta Dutt during 1948-55 beside Lata Mangeshkar. It was only after 1957 when Geeta Dutt could not give sufficient time to S D Burman for rehearsals, he switched over to Asha Bhosle (Lata Mangeshkar not singing for him due to some misunderstanding). It is interesting to note that after her marriage with Guru Dutt in 1953, the yearly aggregate number of songs sung by Geeta Dutt post-1953 have fallen mainly due to a stiff competition from Lata Mangeshkar coupled with her domestic compulsion.

Both Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor have emotional tone in their voices which suits the genre of poignant and devotional songs. However, going by a large number of songs sung by Geeta Dutt relative to that of Meena Kapoor, the former’s versatilities are evident to general listeners of her songs. Just note as to how S D Burman had been instrumental in making Geeta Dutt a versatile singer. From emotional mera sundar sapna beet gaya in ‘Do Bhai’ (1947) to light-hearted tadbeer se bigdi huyi taqdeer bana le in ‘Baazi’ (1951), to coquettish song, jaane kya toone kahi jaane kya maine suni, teasing song, janoon jaanoon re chhupke kaun aaya in ‘Insaan Jaag Utha’ (1959) and many of her club songs. Her repertoire of songs under other music directors is also large.

Meena Kapoor did not get much opportunities to display her versatilities as her singing output was less than 200 songs as compared to Geeta Dutt’s around 1400 songs. But Meena Kapoor had also a good repertoire of songs like waltz type song, aate hain wo aate hain wo in ‘Chalte Chalte’ (1947), light-hearted meri jaan meri jaan sunday ke sunday in ‘Shehnaai’ (1947), romance in ye samaa ham tum jawaan in ‘Maashooka’ (1953), folk song, rimjhim barse paani aaj more angna in ‘Pardesi’ (1957), Rabindra sangeet, mere chanchal naina madhur ras ke bhare in ‘Angoolimal’ (1960) etc.

With almost similar voice timbre, Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor had very few occasions to sing together during their active years of playback singing career as detailed below:

Films Songs (Geeta-Meena) Co-singers Music Director
Hip Hip Hurray (1948) Main jaan gayi jaan gayi Hanuman Prasad
Aadhi Raat (1950) Maine baalam se poochha Hansraj Bahl
Jalte Deep (1950) Aayi milne ki raat Shardul Kwatra
Hulchul (1951) Mile dil aankh sharmaayi Mohd. Shafi
Ghaayal (1951) O rani mainwati -1 G M Durrani Gyan Dutt
Ghaayal (1951) O rani mainwati -2 G M Durrani Gyan Dutt
Ghaayal (1951) Tera kisi pe aaye dil Gyan Dutt

Before I conclude my article, I would like to give links of a solo song each of Meena Kapoor and Geeta Dutt for the purpose of their voice comparison. I have deliberately selected the songs of the same genre (Meera bhajans) so that the comparison is on the even keel.

Meena Kapoor main birhan baithi jaagoon ‘Gopinath’ (1948)
Geeta Dutt ae ri main to prem deewaani ‘Jogan’ (1950)

After repeatedly listening to these two songs, I can feel some differences in voices but I am unable to explain as to what are the differences. Probably, Meena Kapoor sounds slight nasal in her singing than Geeta Dutt. Of course, musicologists like the late Ashok Ranade would have technically explained their voice differences.

On the occasion of the 90th birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt and 3rd Remembrance Day of Meena Kapoor on November 23, 2020, I am presenting their duet song, aayi milne ki raat karo meethi meethi baat from an obscure film ‘Jalte Deep’ (1950). The song is written by Aziz Kashmiri which is set to music by Shardul Kwatra. The film was produced by R Vasudeva under the banner of Nihal Film Corporation and was directed by Deepak Asha. The star cast included Nimmi, Amarnath, Randhir, Sophia, Deepak, Kuldeep, Leela Mishra etc. The film had 12 songs of which one song has been covered in the Blog.

The voices of Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor are so similar that I get a feeling whether the song I am presenting is solo or duet. However, the lyrics do give an impression of a duet and HFGK mentions Geeta Dutt and Meena Kapoor as playback singers for the song.

Since the film’s VCD/DVD is not available, one can listen to the song only on the audio clip. I have a photograph from the film in which Nimmi and Sophia are seen holding a tray each with lamps. Based on the photograph, my guess is that the song may have been picturised on Nimmi and Sophia welcoming their ‘balam’ and ‘sajan’.

Missing Films of 1960s – 113
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Famous last words, and all the associated idiomatic paraphernalia that goes along – well, it has happened with me too. 🙂 On Monday last (1st July), while posting the 112th episode of this series, I had, with much fanfare announced that no more films of 1960s are traceable at present. And the very same day, our dear Sadanand ji pointed me towards a link on YT – a song uploaded by Shri Girdhari Lal ji (of Jodhpur), from the film ‘Rang Raliyaan’ of 1962. This film is on the list of 79 films that I posted in that article – list of films that are still to be traced.

And so in my defense I want to state that Girdhari Lal ji is one of the earliest sources that I consulted, while searching for the missing films and songs. That must have been about 3 to 4 years ago, when I had started working on this series. At that point in time, he had told me that, he had not yet started working on the films from 1960s, so he could not say with certainty. Later, as I was getting to close this series, I should have checked with him again, but missed doing that. And this upload has been online for about 11 months now. 🙂

In my article I have written at one place,

The last column gives the no. of films which are not yet available, and I mean, not available from any source, period. As far as my search of the past almost four years reveals, songs of these films are not available anywhere in public domain. I could be wrong, and oh boy, I will be the happiest person to be told that I am wrong 🙂 .

Yes, I am happy to get hold of songs from a very rare and obscure film, and also to bring this film on board. And I heartfully thank Sadanand ji for bringing this song and upload to my notice. Further, I am so glad that providence made me close that article with the lines,

I suspend further publications in this series. I say suspend, because I want to leave the door open for the possibility that any of the remaining 79 films of this decade, may turn up, only God knows where and when.

Well, one of the films did turn up right away. 🙂

Not only has Girdhari Lal ji uploaded these songs online, he also sent me many more details about the film itself, which I am presenting here.

The film is produced by Achchhe Saheb (name given in Geet Kosh). It is directed by Aziz Kashmiri, who has also written the songs in this film. The cast of actors of this film includes Meena, Manhar Desai, Manju, Randheer, Dalpat and Om Prakash.

The film has seven songs, one of which is a long two part song. All songs are written by Aziz Kashmiri. Three music directors have contributed to the film – Vinod, Lachhiram and S Bannerji.  This particular song is composed by Lachhiram. The singing voice is that of Mubarak Begum.

This song is vintage Mubarak Begum. As I listened to this song multiple times, the rendition and the nuances kept taking my mind back to her other hit songs like “Tumhaara Dil Mere Dil Ke Muqaabil Ho Nahin Sakta. . . Bemuravvat Bewafaa. . .”, “Aankhon Aankhon Mein Har Ek Raat Guzar Jaati Hai”, and “Mere Aansuon Pe Na Muskura”. A sad song of a broken heart, I simply do not seem to be able to get enough of listening to it. A very rare and a very obscure addition to our blog – a song whose existence we have not been aware of all these years.

And yes, this find also gives hope and encouragement that more of the missing films and songs may be recovered in time.
Aameen.

hum aur to sab kuchh bhool gaye
oo oo oo
hum aur to sab kuchh bhool gaye
ik teri wafaa ko yaad kiya..aa..aa. . .

क्या भले दिन थे
तबीयत जब कहीं आई ना थी
चोट वो खाई है दिल पर
जो कभी खाई ना थी

क्यों हमने मोहब्बत की तुमसे
ओ ओ ओ
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत की तुमसे
क्यों दिल का सुकूँ बर्बाद किया
क्यों उनके लिए बदनाम हुये
ओ ओ ओ
क्यों उनके लिए बदनाम हुये
क्यों खाना ए ग़म आबाद किया
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत॰ ॰ ॰

दामन में है ग़म तुम क्या जानो
दामन में है ग़म तुम क्या जानो
मजबूर हैं हम तुम क्या जानो
तुम क्या जानो
वो दिल की खुशी पाएंगे कहाँ
ओ ओ ओ
वो दिल की खुशी पाएंगे कहाँ
किस्मत ने जिन्हें नाशाद किया
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत॰ ॰ ॰

ए बाद ए सबा तू जा के ज़रा
ए बाद ए सबा तू जा के ज़रा
कह देना ये पैग़ाम मेरा
पैग़ाम मेरा
हम और तो सब कुछ भूल गए
ओ ओ ओ
हम और तो सब कुछ भूल गए
इक तेरी वफ़ा को याद किया॰॰आ॰॰आ॰ ॰ ॰

Missing Films of 1960s – 102
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As I checked the listings today, I find there still are a good about dozen films of 1960s, and this homework list, that are traceable, available and have to be covered. I was earlier thinking may be just four or five more to go. Ok so, abhi to we are in good stride here, and hope to complete the available list in the next about two weeks. 🙂

Today’s film is ‘Soldier’ from 1969. This film also has an alternate name – ‘Thakur Diler Singh’. And so on YouTube, we find songs available by both names. The film is produced under the banner of PS Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Shyam. An short list of actors – Kumar Ajeet, Deepa, Shyam Kumar, Rajan Haksar, Randhir, Pal Sharma, Parasram, Jagdev, and Bilkis Shabnam.

The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. All songs are from the pen of Aziz Kashmiri, and the music is by the duo of Sonik Omi. Aziz Kashmiri, by this time in his career, was seasoned songwriter. His active career starts at the beginning of the 1940s, and goes all the way to mid 1970s – a recognized body of work of about 230+ songs from about 50 films. To his credit are such notable films as ‘Himmat’ (1941), ‘Iraada’ (1944), ‘Khamosh Nigaahen’ (1946), ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1947),’Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949), ‘Dholak’ and ‘Sabz Baagh’ (both 1951), ‘Aag Ka Driya’ and ‘Ek Do Teen’ (both 1953), ‘Dekhi Teri Bambai’ (1961), ‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’, ‘Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi’ and ‘Akalmand’ (all 1966) etc. His last film, as per Geet Kosh, is ‘International Crook’ from 1974.

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle. Although the video clips of some songs of this film are available, for this particular song, I could locate only the audio clip. From the sound of it, it seems to be a group dance situation. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to add more information about this song.

Another player from 1960s makes its debut on our blog.  Listen to and enjoy this wonderful creation.

Song – Hum Ne Suna Tha Bada Charcha Janaab Ka  (Soldier) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Aziz Kashmiri, MD – Sonik Omi
Chorus

Lyrics

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

bin poochhe mann ghaayal kar gayi
qaatil teri najariya
koi maane ya na maane
hum huye tere deewaane
jo pyaar kare iqraar kare
to ban jaaye afsaane
hoy bin poochhe mann ghaayal kar gayi
qaatil teri najariya
chauraahe pe dekha tujhko
lut gayi beech bajariya re
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

gali gali main naach rahi hoon
tere liye bedardi
kehti hai meri jawaani
kyon qadar na tu ne jaani
ho yaar mere dildaar mere
zaalim hai rut mastaani
hoy gali gali main naach rahi hoon
tere liye bedardi
itna to batla de akela
kya thi teri marzi
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

बिन पूछे मन घायल कर गई
क़ातिल तेरी नजरिया
कोई माने या ना माने
हम हुये तेरे दीवाने
जो प्यार करे इक़रार करे
तो बन जाये अफसाने
होय बिन पूछे मन घायल कर गई
क़ातिल तेरी नजरिया
चौराहे पे देखा तुझको
लुट गई बीच बजरिया रे
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

गली गली में नाच रही हूँ
तेरे लिए बेदर्दी
कहती है मेरी जवानी
क्यों क़दर ना तू ने जानी
हो यार मेरे दिलदार मेरे
ज़ालिम है रुत मस्तानी
होय गली गली में नाच रही हूँ
तेरे लिए बेदर्दी
इतना तो बतला दे अकेला
क्या थी तेरी मर्ज़ी
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
