ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 20
———————————————————————

And now, continuing the saga of the 10th anniversary celebrations. 🙂

First off, thanks to Mahesh ji for announcement that “The last batsman is in”. Quite true, and well, almost. One reason (of the many excuses that I am going to converse about today 🙂 ), is that, quite truly, I was waiting for at least one more contribution to land in, before I announce the closure of celebrations. But as the events transpired, I realized that waiting for that article would probably be like waiting for Mr. Godot.

I refer to Ben Kayti, who has promised me that she will be sending in a write up, but then – well, days have just been following one after the other. In an earlier communication she mentioned that she was little down in health, and that she has a doctor’s appointment. And then – silence. One day, two days – messages on WhatsApp, emails, phone calls, voice mail remained unanswered. When no response came, I had no option but to press the panic button. I tried to contact three other people in the family. And finally, her daughter-in-law responded to my SOS. The family is out to a vacation – Glacier National Park in Montana, where no connectivity is available. The vacationers also include the other two members of the family who I was attempting to get in touch. So it was a relief to know that all was well, and also somewhat vexing that there was a communication gap that created some worries. I will return to this and tie up the loose end left here, and continue with the mainstream of celebration.

‘19’ seems to be a lucky number for me. Quite a few significant things in my life are connected with this number. And thus, not surprisingly, I get connected with this blog that celebrates its birthday on 19th July. And then, more, I was not planning it to be so – my (previous) post comes at 19th in the series. Ah yes, as Atul ji has mentioned often, there is a hand of providence with what goes on with this blog. And let me add one more very interesting ‘19’ phenomena. As per the statistics that the WordPress maintains, the date which has had the highest number of visitors on this blog (10,630) is also a 19 – 19th October, 2011.

On 14th January this year, the visitor’s ticker on our blog home page turned into an 8 digit number for the first time. We clocked in 10 millionth visitor that evening (IST) – and it translates to 1 crore, in domestic terminology. As I write to complete this article, the ticker has already gone past 10 million 6 hundred thousand, clocking in on average ~ 3,000 visitors per day in this year so far. I would like to give it a name today – this presence that ASAD makes on the worldwide web – it is the “ASAD Phenomena“. Nowhere else probably (once again, as far as I am aware) is there any such endeavour that combines the interests and the determination of such a like-minded team with such dedication, to sustain such a significant level of interest in the central theme of this blog. All I can say is – there are music lovers in this world, and then there are ‘music lovers’ in this world.

Looking back at my association, the date was 1st October 2010 when I clicked on the subscribe button for getting the RSS feed and became a regular reader-member of this blog. And guess, what is the first song feed that arrived into my mailbox next day (on 2nd October) – “Ham to tere dil ke bangley mein aanaa maangtaa”. Now that I read this song title, I wonder whether it was a message intended for me from Atul ji, or was it supposed to be from me to Atul ji. 😀 😀  Whichever way, I think it just worked out very famously. 🙂

My first step into lyrics contribution was published on 1st Feb, 2011 and it is the famous Suraiya song from ‘Bilwamangal’ (1954) – “Parwaanon Se Preet Seekh Len”. And then it just went on from there. The first post written by me appeared on 18th Feb, 2011, a song from the film ‘Gul e Bakaavali’ (1963) “Ye Kehdo Tumhe Hamse Kyaa Chaahiye”. Missed the 19th by just a day, although there is a post on the 19th Feb also, my second one. And then it just went on from there.

कुछ लगता नहीं के सात साल गुज़र गए। Seriously, it seems just like last week or last month. In that very year (2011), in the subsequent months, we had a spectacular event on the blog, something of the type that has not yet been repeated. An event that truly marks this blog to be a Phenomena. Starting on 28th June, 2011, the blog saw an unbroken series of articles on the great KL Saigal Sb, that lasted all the way up to 18th Sep, 2011. The last song of this unbroken series, posted on 18th Sep is “Baalam To Pe Sabar Padey” from the film ‘Parwaana’ (1947). I quote a brief paragraph from that write up here,

With this post, I have now published 61 posts on Saigal Saab’s songs. In one of the interim emails, Atul ji wrote to me that every day morning, he eagerly opens his mailbox to look for an email from me. And the eagerness and urgency was no less on my side. Some of the ghazals took anywhere from 3 to 6 hours to complete the write up, with the translations and commentary to my satisfaction. There have been nights when I have sent the write ups to Atul ji at 2 am, 3 am and even past 4 am. There have been occasions that (after having fallen asleep on my laptop) I got to complete the write up later in the morning; you can identify these days by noting the delay in posting the Saigal Saab song for the day.

What a heady time it was. That endeavour was really worth it. We enjoyed it immensely, and it came to a monumental conclusion of documenting and posting each and every one of the available Hindi / Urdu recordings made by the great singer. And truly, nothing comparable to that has again been attempted on the blog so far.

One more reason that I quote this above paragraph from the earlier write up. Something of this relates to the song in this post. I will return to it again, shortly. But yes, I am talking about the relentless tempo with which this blog continues to progress. The support and participative contributions from the entire team are without doubt the bulwark that provides the strength to the arms and shoulders of what this blog is. But then the definitive power of this entire effort is the unflagging dedication and persistence of the leadership from Atul ji, which is truly the backbone of this effort.  It is an accomplishment sans pareil anywhere in the annals of the history of blogging on the internet related to Hindi Film Music.

So, beyond September of 2011, although now done with all the available songs of Saigal Saab, the journey and the saga still continued. Century milestones came with their regularity, then the 5,000th song – “Hamen To Loot Liyaa Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne” (dated 13th Nov, 2011), more centuries of artists and other interesting statistical achievements. Then on to the 10,000th song – “Phul Rahin Belariyaan Dolen” (dated 20th July,2014), an extraordinary song published first time anywhere on the net, a song of 1931 vintage posted; and the unprecedented organized effort wherein all regular members of the group contributed a post that contains an introduction of another member. And a memorable long afternoon spent by almost the entire group connected on email, as we all waited for the post to appear on the blog.

On and on, tirelessly, doggedly – getting to honky-tonk posts at the nos. 11111, 12345, 12357 . . .

Then we came to the post no. 13182 – “Aag Lagi Shola Uttha Shamma Pe Parwaana Gira”, on 22nd April last year. It was the mostest of the most momentous celebrations, the 10,000th post by dear Atul ji. It was a surprise for Atul ji; he was under the impression that his 10,000th milestone was already past. But that was not the case. The entire group got together and gave him a standing ovation that verily resounded across the internet.

The next big whopper for our blog came on 14th Jan earlier this year, and its celebration was covered in post no. 13921 “Bhalaai Duniya Ki Jo Subh O Shaam Karte Hain” – the visitor ticker on the blog had turned from nine million, nine hundred ninety nine thousand, nine hundred ninety nine to ten million, sometimes in the late evening of 14th Jan (IST). In desi parlance, we would say  निन्यावे लाख, निन्यावे हज़ार, नौ सौ निन्यावे से हम एक करोड़ पर पहुंचे। Once again, this was a major, major occasion for the blog, and the echoes reverberated once again around the globe – literally. 🙂

And now, greetings (balated) for the date of completing 10 years since this blog’s creation by Atul ji. The date is 19th July (and I am late, of course, as usual – I have a reputation to protect and uphold, you know 😀 ). As per the Wikipedia articles, celebrations calendars and other related details available online, the tenth anniversary is represented by tin or aluminum. The color of this anniversary is blue and / or silver. And the gift of this 10th celebration is diamonds. Whooo. . .

Note that 10 is another interesting number on our blog recently – 10,000th post on blog, 10,000th post by Atul ji, 10 millionth visitor on the blog, and now the 10th anniversary of the blog itself; the last three events listed happening within the period of past 16 months. You simply just cannot cease to keep celebrating on this blog. And the wonder of wonders is that we also continue to trace and share absolutely wonderful celebration songs to go along with the event. The patterns that we conjured up for the post nos. 11111, 12345 and 12357 are quite an interesting phenomena in as of themselves, with the ”hand of providence” playing its fair share in making them happen. 🙂 For those who may not be familiar with these stories, I suggest they should view these posts – they are really very interesting tales of happenstance and coincidence. 🙂  Just click on the post numbers in the sentence above.

So, connecting back to where we started off. Finally last night (IST), the much awaited call from Ben Kayti and Jagdish Bhai materialized. It was a great relief to hear their voices, and to be assured that all is well. The planned vacation had gone on very well, and quite “frigidly”, given that the vacation spot chosen was the Glacier National Park in Montana (USA). After returning from there earlier this week, they also had some guests visiting and so Khyati Ben was completely busy with family affairs. She has once again promised that she will write a post this coming week now. I decided not to wait any further and put up the 20th post in this series today. If and when her post comes along, it will be now at an auspicious ‘पायदान’ of 21. 🙂

Amongst others in the list of my ‘reasons’ (excuses) is of course that I was also in travel during some of this intervening period. In fact most of the early posts in the 10th anniversary series were actually posted while I was on the move. Getting back home, I almost immediately got busy with celebrations for Guru Purnima at my Guru ji’s place. There, the celebrations last for 5 / 6 days, starting from the Guru Purnima day and continuing till the ‘पंचमी’ in the month of ‘सावन’. So that occupied me for almost a whole week within which I was not able to accomplish much as far as the blog activities are concerned.

Another thing was the song selection. Till almost the last hours of posting my previous article – “Dil Chaahta Hai” – I had no idea what would be the songs I am going to write about. The first song I finally zeroed in was this one. Going by a set of very good celebration songs posted by other friends in the group, I was thinking – most of these songs are of recent origin. How about searching for a similar celebration cum group dance song from the earlier decades? After sifting through many possibilities, I picked up this song from the film ‘Tarang’ of 1952. First of, this song has four singers – Rafi Sb, Geeta Dutt, Shamshad Begum and Chitragupt himself. Secondly, the song (no video available) gives a feeling of a gypsy camp by the banks of a river, where a group dance cum song is being performed.

So actually, this song was originally planned to be the earlier post. But then, in random process, I bumped into the “Dil Chaahta Hai” song, and with some contemplative considerations, my planned post got converted into two posts. And good that it did. If I would have combined both these posts with one song – well. . . 🙂

So here is a fabulous celebration song which promises that the proceedings are going to last all night, and that all are invited. And the best part, this song starts with mentioning the word ‘सावन’.

So let me now take just a couple of more minutes to link in ‘सावन’ (saawan) with this celebration. You are going to love this. After having posted all the posts received from the group, and with Atul ji’s post also in place, I started to get individual messages from members of this group, asking me about the delay as to why my post was not coming in. And me, I was without an answer; what to tell – that I have not yet identified the song even? Well, as part of this set of messages, I get this fond message from Atul ji himself on 26th or maybe 27th July, wherein he prodded me to publish my post on the 28th. Reason, he explained, was that 28th July this year is the start of the month of ‘सावन’. And back, in 2008, when this blog got initiated, the date 19th July was also the start of of the month of ‘सावन’. I was really wonderstruck. I had never made this wonderful connect before. Wow, this blog is born in the month of ‘सावन’ – ‘सावन – मन भावन’, and not just the month, on the first of the month. Now this is really auspicious. I can go on now connecting many more things, along with this connect. . .  but maybe not. Goodness, there are hundreds of songs in Hindi films that have the word ‘सावन’ in the mukhda. So I will move on by saying that this blog is blessed – for it is born in this auspicious month, showering sprinkles of delightful music in drizzles of melodious songs, one after the other. Oh sure, yes, this blog is a ‘सावन’ born. 🙂 Without any doubts. I am glad Atul ji highlighted this point to me, and that now we know what songs to post in the future, when the blog’s birthday comes along. 🙂

Coming back to this film and this song. I got the set of songs of this film from my collector friend. This film has some very wondrous songs, ten in all, eight of which are penned by IC Kapoor, and one each by DN Madhok and Ram Murti. This song is written by Ram Murti. The music composition is by Chitragupt, who has also lent his voice to two of the songs in this film, including this one. The blog already carries 5 songs from this film, and I promise you, the best of the songs are still to come. Just like this song today. It is such a joie de vivre expression of gaiety and celebration. The tempo is so sweet and so infective, that you will be swaying with the beat. When I heard this song for the first time, well, quite a while back now, I was simply bowled over by it. And even now, having heard it so often, whenever I play it again, I simply am not able to get over it.

नदिया किनारे मोरा डेरा
मशाल जले सारी रतियाँ॰ ॰ ॰

Just listen to this song, and I assure you that at the end of the play, you will feel so un-satiated that you will be playing it again and again.

In some ways, this song also expresses my connect with the blog. Earlier in this article, I had mentioned a quote from the earlier posted last article in the KL Saigal series. So that is the connect here. Practically all my work for this blog happens in the dead of the night and in the wee hours of the morning. This is also mentioned in the quoted paragraph above. Even beyond the Saigal Sb series, my mode of working on the tasks related to this blog has not changed. All the posts that you see getting on to the blog at 7 am and 9 am – all these posts have been worked on and completed the previous night at times like 2 am and 3 am. 🙂

A very happy 10th birthday to ASAD; a ton of congratulations to Atul ji, and all the dear friends and co-passengers on this musical bandwagon. The saga continues. . .

नदिया किनारे मोरा डेरा
मशाल जले सारी रतियाँ॰ ॰ ॰

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘न’ – नज़र ने लूटा है, अदा ने मारा है ॰ ॰ ॰

फूलों से दोस्ती है, काँटों से यारी है ॰ ॰ ॰
ऐसी मज़े की प्यारे ज़िंदगी हमारी है ॰ ॰ ॰

ज़िंदगी हो भी तो जैसी तुम्हारी थी, वैसी हो॰ ॰ ॰ कोई अच्छा था तो वो भी दोस्त था, कोई अच्छा नहीं था तो भी यार ही था। A big heart such as yours is a rarity in humans.

– – – –

The first line of the song and the mind is tuned in for another gem of a creation from Chitragupt. This next song in this series is vintage Chitragupt.

The film is ‘Police Detective’ from 1960. The melody was still the reigning empress, and the creators of the likes of Chitragupt were still at their inspired best. Such a lovely playful song of two hearts in love, expressing their hearts to each other.

The film is a production from the banner of Neo Light Films, Bombay and is produced by Balwant Bhatt and Ram Kamlani. It is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of actors listed for the film is impressive and includes Shyama, Sudesh, David, Jaishri Gadkar, Lilian, Ram Kamlani, Helen, Anwar, Shammi, Bhagwan, Meena, Genius, Susheel Kumar, Jai Kumar, Nisar, Roshanlal, Ramesh Roy, Saleem, Ghulam Rasool, Gani, Mohammad Ali, Sevanand, Ameer, Douglas, Tiger (Dog), and Pedro, the human chimpanzee. Hmm. . . Sevanand – interesting, would have liked to see an image of this actor. . . whether any similarity to Dev Anand. 🙂

Six songs are listed for this film, all from the pen of Prem Dhawan. Two of these songs are already showcased here on our blog. This is the third one to come on board from this film. The singing companion of Rafi Sb in this song is Lata Mangeshkar. Given the list of actors, this song is most likely picturized on the lead pair of Shyama and Sudesh Kumar. I request other readers and friends to please comment on this guess.

Listen to this lovely tête-à-tête between two hearts in love – complaints of hearts stolen through deceit and ripostes of challenges that if this is deceit, then welcome to take back the heart. Wonderful play of words, and a lovely tune that ties them together. A pleasure to listen.

Song – Nazar Ne Loota Hai, Ada Ne Maara Hai  (Police Detective) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
agar ye dhokha tha
to kis ne roka tha
laga ke dil ye kehte ho
ke dil bechaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

hamaare haal pe to ye zamaana hansta hai
ke jiske paas dil ho wo kabhi to phansta hai
hamaare haal pe to ye zamaana hansta hai
ke jiske paas dil ho wo kabhi to phansta hai
to phir kyon rotey phirtey ho
ke dil nazron ka maara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

hamaare naaz bhi sehne padenge ulfat mein
likhe hain sainkdo chakkar
tumhaari kismat mein
hamaare naaz bhi sehne padenge ulfat mein
likhe hain sainkdo chakkar
tumhaari kismat mein
jo hum pe guzregi seh lenge
jab dil tum pe waara hai
agar ye dhokha tha
to kis ne roka tha
laga ke dil ye kehte ho
ke dil bechaara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
अगर ये धोखा था
तो किस ने रोका था
लगा के दिल
ये कहते हो
के दिल बेचारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

हमारे हाल पे तो ये ज़माना हँसता है
के जिसके पास दिल हो वो कभी तो फँसता है
हमारे हाल पे तो ये ज़माना हँसता है
के जिसके पास दिल हो वो कभी तो फँसता है
तो फिर क्यों रोते फिरते हो
के दिल नज़रों का मारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

हमारे नाज़ भी सहने पड़ेंगे उलफत में
लिखे हैं सैकड़ों चक्कर
तुम्हारी किस्मत में
हमारे नाज़ भी सहने पड़ेंगे उलफत में
लिखे हैं सैकड़ों चक्कर
तुम्हारी किस्मत में
जो हम पे गुज़रेगी सह लेंगे
जब दिल तुम पे वारा है
अगर ये धोखा था
तो किस ने रोका था
लगा के दिल
ये कहते हो
के दिल बेचारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘थ’ – थोड़ी सी ज़िंदगानी राजा बीते ना जवानी ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

दिल तू भी गा, प्यार में मुस्कुरा ॰ ॰ ॰

Yes, we grew up with and learned all about the heart, and the smiles and love, listening to your songs. . . how we wish there were more. . .

– – – –

Scraped through with some difficulty for today’s episode – not many songs, and duet at that, beginning with this letter ‘थ’.

Today’s song is from a lesser known film from 1957 – ‘Laxmi Pooja’.  The film is produced and directed by Jayant Desai for Hemlata Pictures, Bombay. The list of actors of this film reads like – Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Anant Kumar, Babu Raje, Praveen Pal, Indira, Manju, Shri Bhagwan, Sukumar, Rajrani, and Meenu Mumtaz etc.

The nine songs of this film are all written by Bharat Vyas, and the music is composed by Chitragupt. Quite a melodious song, this offering is. The singing voices are those of Shamshad Begum and Rafi Sb.

Apparently the lady’s beau has a stronger attachment to religious pursuits, much to the dismay of the lady. And she is trying to win him over with her winsome expressions about youth being wasted. And the gentleman replies – it is not just youth, but the entire life that is getting wasted, so let us sing the praises of the Good Lord. The lady is not giving up her rightful claim and she too presses on with her efforts to snare him with the promises of love. Our man, appears to be made of sterner stuff – and absolutely does not give up by the time 3rd antaraa starts to play (somewhat breaking the rule we have always found useful in such song situations).

There is another song of a similar theme – from the 1975 film ‘Sanyaasi’ – “Chal Sanyasi Mandir Mein“. It would be interesting to compare notes and lyrics. . . 🙂

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Thodi Si Zindgani Raja Beete Na Jawaani  (Lakshmi Pooja) (1957) Singer – Shamshad Begum, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Chitragupt
Chorus

Lyrics

thodi si zindgani
raja beete na jawaani
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re

teri thodi si zindgaani
pal pal beeti jaaye jawaani
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

rang rangeele raja aaja
o raja
rang rangeele raja aaja
kar le dil ki baat re
rang rangeele raja aaja
kar le dil ki baat re
baat baat mein jeevan beete..ey..ey..ey
baat baat mein jeevan beete
kyon na tu sharmaat re
kyon na tu sharmaat re
oo oo hoye
aai hai rut mastaani
rim jhim barse roop ka paani
dekho saawan ke badra chhaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

nain baan hain
palken dori
nain baan hain palken dori
chitwan chhode baan re

roop jawaani behta paani..ee..ee
roop jawaani behta paani
kyon karta abhiman re
kyon karta abhiman re
teri preet badi deewaani
preet laga prabhu se agyaani
jahaan dhokha na koi khaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ज’ – जब घड़ी बोले चार गोरी करके सिंगार ॰ ॰ ॰

॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰
तुम्हें रुकना पड़ेगा, मेरी आवाज़ सुन कर ॰ ॰ ॰

जी, आपकी आवाज़ सुन कर तो हम आज भी रुक जाते हैं।  आप खुद ही कहीं दूर हो, जहां हमारी आवाज़ शायद नहीं पहुँचती॰ ॰ ॰

Looking at the title line, I am tempted to start searching for songs which are built around the theme of the clock and  time on the clock. Yes, there are a few songs that come to mind, but then likely many of them are probably already here on the blog. Let me see.

Coming to the next letter in the alphabet for this series. The song that I have selected is a duet of Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur from the film ‘Gambler’. Not, this is not the 1971 Dev Sb starer, but an obscure and forgotten film from 1960. One song of this film is posted on the blog in July 2013. Close to five years now, that we are getting to revisit this film and add to its counter.

When I look at the detailed credits of this film, I am a bit surprised that this film is obscure and unfamiliar. The banner name is Vikas Productions from Bombay. More important, the producers of this film are Ram Kamlani and Dwarka Khosla, the latter being also the director of this film.

The star cast is quite, rather very impressive, for it includes Premnath, Shakeela, Agha, Poornima, Pran, KN Singh, Shammi, Madan Puri, Kanchanmala, Kukku, Mridula, Raja Amrohi, Jai Kumar, Meena, Ram Kamlani. Hmmm, a Premnath and Shakeela starrer in the late 1950s. . . should have been a better known film.

Anyway, seven songs listed. All songs from the pen of Prem Dhawan and music by Chitragupt, assisted by Dilip Dholakia. The song itself has a peculiar signature – a long pause of silence in the middle of the last word in last lines of the mukhda and the antaraas. I can’t recall a similar tune design for a song in Hindi films.

The song is a ‘nok-jhonk’ song – the gentleman says something to offend the lady to start with, she complains about it, he retracts and apologizes, and then all is well once again. And the planned tryst at 4 O’Clock is very much on. The pause becomes so noticeable, as the rest of song is quite fast paced. As I said, a peculiar tune design experimented by Chitragupt. A fun song, I am sure you will enjoy.

Song – Jab Ghadi Bole Chaar Gori Kar Ke Singaar  (Gambler) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt
Mohammed Rafi + Suman Kalyanpur

Lyrics

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 12
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –


‘च’ – चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है मुस्कुराती रात है ॰ ॰ ॰

तुम तो दिल के तार छेड़ कर ॰ ॰ ॰

The songs that you have rendered, the legacy that you have left behind, it strums the strings of the heart and brings unfettered pleasure to the listening mind. The treasure is limitless, and yet limited. Limitless – that we can hear them over and over again, and the listening pleasure multiplies. And yes, limited too – for we know now, what we have is what it is; there will be additions to this treasure no more.

Continuing with this delightful series of duets of Rafi Sb. We skip the ‘ङ’ letter in the alphbet – no meaningful words start with this letter and so no songs starting with it either.

We now come on to the next letter ‘‘. And to this delightful song from almost seven decades back. The film is from 1950 – a time when the companion singer was still known as Geeta Roy. The film is ‘Hamaara Ghar’. A wonderful chhaayageet song which comes from the pen of Anjum. The lyricists name appears as such; most likely this is the same person as Anjum Jaipuri. The melody comes from the mind of Chitragupt, a creator of many an unforgettable track.

The film is produced under the banner of Hindustan Chitra and is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of actors is listed as Durga Khote, Umakant, Veera, Agha, Meena Kumari, Geeta Bose, David, Jankidas, Ramesh Gupta, Yashodhara Katju. I cannot with certainty make any guess about the lead pair of the film. I request knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film and this song.

The film has seven songs, two of which are already showcased here on our blog. Here is the third song from this film. Think 1950, and think melody – the queen. A delightful duet. Enjoy.

 

Song – Chaandni Chhitki Hui Hai Muskuraati Raat Hai (Hamaara Ghar) (1950) Singer – Geeta Roy, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anjum, MD – Chitragupt
Mohammed Rafi + Geeta Dutt

Lyrics

chaandni chhitki hui hai
muskuraati raat hai
chaandni chhitki hui hai
muskuraati raat hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

tumko kya dekhen sitaaro
tum puraane ho chuke
tumko kya dekhen sitaaro
tum puraane ho chuke
hum to un ko dekhte hain
jo hamaare ho chuke
jo hamaare ho chuke
dil se dil ki baat hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

jhoomte hain aaj armaan
hans rahi hai zindagi
jhoomte hain aaj armaan
hans rahi hai zindagi
dil to pehle hi miley the
mil gai taqdeer bhi
mil gai taqdeer bhi
aji haath mein ab haath hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

ik naya jeevan hai paaya
ik nai duniya basi
ik naya jeevan hai paaya
ik nai duniya basi
mil gayi hai do dilon ko
saari duniya ki khushi
saari duniya ki khushi
kya niraali baat hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

chaandni chhitki hui hai
muskuraati raat hai
ek chanda aasmaan par
ik hamaare saath hai

चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है
मुस्कुराती रात है
चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है
मुस्कुराती रात है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

तुमको क्या देखें सितारो
तुम पुराने हो चुके
तुमको क्या देखें सितारो
तुम पुराने हो चुके
हम तो उनको देखते हैं
जो हमारे हो चुके

दिल से दिल की बात है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

झूमते हैं आज अरमां
हंस रही है ज़िंदगी
झूमते हैं आज अरमां
हंस रही है ज़िंदगी
दिल तो पहले ही मिले थे
मिल गई तक़दीर भी
मिल गई तक़दीर भी
अजी हाथ में अब हाथ है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

इक नया जीवन है पाया
नयी दुनिया बसी
इक नया जीवन है पाया
इक नयी दुनिया बसी
मिल गई है दो दिलों को
सारी दुनिया की खुशी
सारी दुनिया की खुशी
क्या निराली बात है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है
मुस्कुराती रात है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

‘ग’ – गोरी नागन बन के ना चला करो॰ ॰ ॰

याद ना जाये बीते दिनों की ॰ ॰ ॰

Some solace that we have a treasure of your songs to live by. Else the memories of the past would have been a difficult thing to live with.

The 1960 film ‘Naache Naagin Baaje Been’ is turning out to be a treasure hunt. The film is packed with such wonderful melodies. I pick today’s 9th song of the series from this film.

On screen this song is performed by Chandrashekhar and Kum Kum. Kum Kum is at her bewitching best in this dance sequence, as she is in practically all dances she has performed on screen. Throughout the entire dance sequence, one does not see her let up the ‘बलखाना’ as she takes on the challenge thrown by the hero, that she should not move like a ‘नागन’ – wonderfully executed dance steps.

The song is from the pen of Majrooh Sb, and the lilting composition is from the mind of Chitragupt. Enjoy this wonderful song, and the enchanting dance that accompanies it.

[Author Note: There are three lines in the second antaraa, that have been spliced out, most likely a damaged portion of the original celluloid film. I tried to check out more video versions of this song, but apparently, this error seems to be very old, and is propagating through all available versions that I could check quickly. I then tried to bring in the audio of this song. However unfortunately, the audio version of this song from the 78 rpm recordings contains only two antaraas. The antaraa that is not present in the audio version, is the very antaraa that has the missing lines in the video. So no luck. 😦 🙂 .]

Missing Films of 1960s – 51
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is not just a song that I should be concerned about. It is the entire film that I am surprised, has missed the attention of the team members of this blog. And not that the film is the issue. It is the songs that I wonder about. And just the category – ‘How come I missed this song’, will not suffice. Maybe another category that says – ‘How come we all missed this movie’.

The film that I am talking about is ‘Mahabharat’ from 1965. And I am sure you will be asking me – why? Another quite obscure film from the 1960s, as obscure as they come. But the songs, I am sure are going to turn out to be very familiar, most of them are favorites from radio listening days. Just sample these

  • “Champa Kali Chhup Chhup Jaaye Re”
  • “Ta Na Na Dir Dir Deem, Deem Ta Dere Na”
  • “Hari Hari Dharti Hai Neela Gagan”
  • “Sakhi Ri Baaje Mann Ki Baansuriya”

And today’s debut song, which is not the least of these – “O Chanda. . . Aaj Ki Raat Na Dhalna”. This film is such treasure of wonderful songs, all of them available online. And yet, this film has taken all this time to make its debut here.

The film is produced under the banner of AG Films, Bombay and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The star cast is impressive and includes Pradeep Kumar, Padmini, Dara Singh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Jeevan, Ambika, Manhar Desai, Tiwari, Anoop Kumar, Maruti, and Achla Sachdev amongst others. Song list in Geet Kosh contains 9 songs. All the songs are from the pen of Bharat Vyas. And the music direction – it is Chitragupt.

Today’s debut song is a duet sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. The lilting melody, a dream song – it is such a dear memory from the past. The words, the music and the rendition – all three come together to create this masterpiece. A must listen for the lovers of music and songs of 1950s and 1960s. Enjoy.

Song – O Chanda. . . Aaj Ki Raat Na Dhalna  (Mahabharat) (1965) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Chitragupt

kitna aaj bhala lagta hai
chalna aur machalna..aa..aa

Rewind back – goodness – 46 years. This song is from 1971, and the dear melody that we all love is quite alive and well.

Two names that we remember, and honor today – Chitragupt and Kaifi Azmi. Today, it is the birth anniversary of Kaifi Azmi and it is the passing away remembrance day for Chitragupt.

Back in 1971, Chitragupt is passing through his silver anniversary in the tinsel town, and Kaifi Azmi is celebrating his 20th in the same industry.

Chitragupt, born in 1917, started his career with Hindi films in 1945-46. In 1971, his journey has thus far passed through about 130 films, and he has composed approximately 930 songs so far. Kaifi Azmi, born in 1919, started to write for Hindi films in 1951. In 1971, he has thus far written approximately 225 songs for about 50 films.

With such illustrious and prolific careers behind them, it is a wonder that these two stalwarts did not get together till 1970 – almost two decades and more, that both of them had been active in the industry. Their coming together film in 1970 is ‘Hamaara Adhikar’. Then, in 1971, both collaborated once again for creating the songs for ‘Saaz Aur Sanam’. And then, that’s it. These two are the only films, and a handful of songs that these two worked on together.

‘Saaz Aur Sanam’ is a production from the banner of Wadia Movietone and is directed by JBH Wadia. The list of actors reads like – Premendra, Rekha, Suresh Chatwal, Sapru, Purnima, Bhagwan, Asit Sen, Kirti Kumar, Panna Kapoor, Bismillah, Dalda, Rajni Bala, Renu, Brahmachari, Ratan Kumar, Hercules, Dayanand, and Arvind etc.

Premendra is a name that we encounter for the first time in the film ‘Deedaar’ of 1970. He appears in ‘Holi Aayee Re, again in 1970, then in two films in 1971 – ‘Duniya Kya Jaane’ and ‘Saaz Aur Sanam’. And then this name does not appear any more in the listings. Four films, and that’s it. Rekha, who has just made her debut, also in 1970 with the film ‘Saawan Bhadon’ (opposite to Navin Nischol), continues to be active in the Hindi film industry to date.

The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar. The song is performed on screen by Rekha. The two protagonists – Rekha and Premendra – are both in their night-wear. It is clearly a ‘roothna – manaana’ category of song. Premendra is the one who is doing the sulking, and Rekha is the one who is trying to appease him. the hints of playfulness and naughtiness that we would see more of in her subsequent films, are quite visible in this song. Plus the original analysis that Atul ji has once done – it takes about three and a half minutes to “appease” a “sulking” hero or heroine, as the case may be. 🙂

A heartfelt salute to Chitragupt and to Kaifi Azmi on this day today. And a dearly wonderful song to celebrate. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Na Rootho Hamen Paas Aane Bhi Do  (Saaz Aur Sanam) (1971) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Kaifi Azmi, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

na rootho
hamen paas aane bhi do
na rootho
hamen paas aane bhi do
chalo hum gunehgaar jaane bhi do
jaane bhi do
na rootho
hamen paas aane bhi do
chalo hum gunehgaar jaane bhi do
jaane bhi do

nahin tum nahin
dil deewaana hua hai
nahin tum nahin
dil deewaana hua hai
tumhen pyaar karte zamaana hu hai
zamaana hu hai
lagi dil ki. . .
ladi dil ki kabhi tum bujhaane bhi do
na rootho
hamen paas aane bhi do
chalo hum gunehgaar jaane bhi do
jaane bhi do

kahaan ye kahaan
hum zyaada haseen hain
kahaan ye kahaan
hum zyaada haseen hain
na dekho ab aise
burey bhi nahin hain
burey bhi nahin hain
nigaahon se
nigaahon se nigaahen milaane bhi do
na rootho
hamen paas aane bhi do
chalo hum gunehgaar jaane bhi do
jaane bhi do

jawaan roop ka
hum khazaana luta den
jawaan roop ka
hum khazaana luta den
tumhaare kadam par zamaana luta den
zamaana luta den
ye dil kya hai
ye dil kya hai hamen dil gawaane bhi do
na rootho
hamen paas aane bhi do
chalo hum gunehgaar jaane bhi do
jaane bhi do

ना जाने क्यों॰ ॰ ॰ होता है ये ज़िंदगी के साथ
अचानक ये मन
किसी के जाने के बाद
करे फिर उसकी याद॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, Shyama. . . the vivacious, bubbly, chirpy, charming Shyama. That is the image that the mind always carries, of this spirited young lady, so full of life on the screen. Some memories and some reflections are so firmly engraved in the mind that it simply does not register or acknowledge the passage of time and the passing of eras. That is the beauty of these memories – that their beauty simply never fades away.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights -1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

oo oo. . neend na mujh ko aaye,
dil mera ghabraaye
chup ke chup ke, koyi aa ke,
soyaa pyaar jagaaye

कोई तो ऐसी उमर रही होगी, कोई तो ऐसा मुकाम आया होगा ज़िंदगी में, जब किन्हीं जज़्बातों के चलते, कुछ (या फिर कई) रातें आप ने जाग के गुज़ारो होंगीं।

There must have been an age, a time in life, a passage of emotional intensities, when you may have spend a few (or maybe many) sleepless nights – thinking, waiting, contemplating. Yes, they visit us all, the nights of the wide open eyes, when a cloudy sky is an irritating bore – for if the skies were clear, at least you would be able to start counting the stars.
