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
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

चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है
मुस्कुराती रात है

तुमको क्या देखें सितारो

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

दिल से दिल की बात 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

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

क्या निराली बात है
एक चंदा आसमान पर
इक हमारे साथ है

चाँदनी छिटकी हुई है
मुस्कुराती रात है
एक चंदा आसमान पर

‘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

Blog Day : 3467 Post No. : 13920

 

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.

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.

My very first encounter with her was the song “Mujhe Mil Gaya Bahaana Teri Deed Ka” (film ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’, 1960). I saw this song on Delhi TV, most probably in some edition of the Chitrahaar program. Shama (Shyama) is on screen with Shabaab (Ratna), her younger sister in the film. There is an exchange that leads to certain wrong impressions. Being secretly in love with Amaan (Bharat Bhushan), Shama interprets that conversation to be in her favour. And this happy song of an assumed fulfilment of love is the outcome. The expressions and the rendering of this love song trickled right into the mind and heart of a very young heart, and the lady on the screen became a favorite crush of mine.

A few years later, I would get a chance to see this complete film. And my heart was both joyous and asunder. I got to see more of her scintillating performance, especially the qawwaali “Ji Chaahta Hai Choom Loon Apni Nazar Ko Main”, in which she is brimming with excitement and delight. She makes you feel the thrill that she is experiencing, going in for the kill of the opposite party in the qawwaali competition. Her performance simply takes you along that joyous path of the victory of her singing group over that of Chand Khan’s (Khurshid Bawra’s) group. But then, I was also sad that in the final outcome, she is not the choice of the person she adores and worships. The film ends with her being the loser in the game of love. My heart wept for her, for her love was true and silent, and it made the sacrifice in face of knowing that her beau’s heart is smitten elsewhere. This film remains an all time favorite in my heart.

Then came other films, viewed some years later during college days. Films from the previous three decades were mostly showing as reruns in morning shows (9am to 12 am). We used to skip the morning classes in the college to go visit these unknown unseen films, for the love of that golden era. In that time, I would get to see ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Shart’ (1954), ‘Chhoo Mantar’ (1956), ‘Makkheechoos’ (1956), ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956), ‘Sharda’ (1957), ‘Bhaabhi’ (1957), ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958), ‘Zabak’ (1961) and many more. The ‘puppy’ crush was long over and done with, but Shyama was a favorite actress – always would be ready to go see an unseen film, especially if Shyama was part of the cast of actors.

She was born as Khursheed Akhtar, in Lahore. Her date of birth is stated differently in different online sources. The anniversaries table on our blog gives the date as 12th June of 1935. Cineplot gives the date as 7th June, 1935. In his book ‘Beete Kal Ke Sitaare’, Shri Sriram Tamrakar quotes her birth date as 12th July 1933. There are other sources which are at variance with these dates too.

When she was two years old, her family moved to Bombay. Her father was a fruit merchant and had set up a shop in Byculla. With seven siblings, Shyama was part of a large family. School and studies never did interest her. Right from childhood, being a star on the silver screen was her dream. As a child, she had seen a film starring Ishwarlal and Khursheed (the famous singer-actress). She was very impressed by Khursheed’s singing and her acting. On seeing this role, a resolve started to form in her to become an actor. [Ed Note: This picture possibly could be ‘Shaadi’ (1941) or ‘Chandni’ (1942).]

As a young girl, she was quite mischievous and full of pranks. Her elder sisters would admonish her for being such a tomboy. In her own words (from an interview on Cineplot) she says that she always wanted a hungama, indulge in a little romance. But she was very disciplined and cultured too. She never smoked, or drank all her life. And she never appeared in a swimsuit throughout her career. She was very true to her Muslim upbringing and family traditions.

In 1944/45 she and her sisters and friends, one day went to see the shooting of a film at a studio in Dadar (Bombay). The shooting of the film ‘Zeenat’ (1945) was in progress. The specific sequence being filmed was the now iconic all female qawwaali “Aahen Na Bharin, Shiqwe Na Kiye”. As luck would have it, Shaukat Hussain Rizvi, the director of the film, wanted to have more girls to join the singing group. He asked this group of onlooker young ladies whether they would like to join the filming of this song. Without hesitation, Khursheed raised her hand. Rizvi Sb picked her to join the group and play the dholak. In the video of this song, one can see her sitting in the second row behind the main singers, wearing a traditional cap, with a dholak in her lap. The young lady got a billing in the star credits as Baby Khursheed. She was just about 10 years old.

Her father was very upset that his daughter had made this impromptu decision, and was set against her joining films. However, her mother and her sisters prevailed upon him and calmed him to get his consent to permit her to work in films. So out went the school and studies, and the little Khurshid started her career doing child roles and extras. By her own estimates, she probably has appeared 80 films in which she was just an extra or a chorus girl.

‘Nai Maa’ is a 1946 film, which Shyama herself indicates as being her first formal role as a child star. The film is from the banner of Prakash Pictures – the production house of the Bhatt brothers – Vijay and Shankar Bhai. With the consideration that there already were two actresses named Khursheed in the industry, Vijay Bhatt suggested for her to change her name to avoid same-name-confusions. He thought of the name ‘Shyama’. The young Khursheed happily took it on, and this name turned to be her career and her destiny.

Getting seriously into small roles as a child and a teenage artist, she did two very important things. One, she refused to be disheartened by the long succession of bit-roles and being a supporting cast member. Two, she took on to get trained in music and dance, and spent a good slice of her developmental years under the tutelage of the famous Badri Prasad, the multi-talented artist active in the industry at that time. Her perseverance paid off. Her roles started to get more prominent, and her co-stars the more famous ones. She appeared as the younger sister to KL Saigal in ‘Parwaana’ (1947). The same year, she also appeared as the younger sister of Motilal in ‘Beete Din’. On to 1949, and she was now the younger sibling of actor Shyam in the film ‘Kaneez’.

In 1950, she got a very prominent role as the wayward younger sister of Shyam and Karan Dewan in the film ‘Chhoti Bhaabhi’. The title role was played by Nargis (paired with Karan Dewan), but the role played by Shyama was pivotal as the rebellious daughter in the family, who is on the verge of eloping with Yakub, a self serving con-man. Then came 1951 – she was paired as the love interest of Balraj Sahni in ‘Hum Log’; and the same year, she got to play a prominent role in ‘Taraana’ as the third part of the love triangle completed by Dilip Kumar and Madhubala.

It was in 1952 that she was able to belie the popular adage in the industry – ‘once an extra, always and extra’. But this graduation was not without its moments of anxiety and a heart stopping near miss. IS Johar was looking for an effervescent and a lively young new face as the lead for his maiden directorial venture – ‘Shrimati Ji’. Familiar with Shyama and her capabilities from their earlier films together viz., ‘Chhoti Bhaabhi’ (1950) and ‘Ek Teri Nishaani’ (1949), Johar chose Shyama from a list of over 100 candidates for the role. Shyama was excited and happy with this groundbreaking development in her career.

But a scare was still in store, and the career that we see, was almost never. A couple of reels had been shot. One day on the studio floor, one of the financiers was present. On seeing Shyama, he made a curt remark that this girl is too thin to impress in a leading role, and walked away. One can imagine the turmoil that followed, with doubts appearing in the minds of the entire team. Shyama herself notes that she went home and cried all night – here was a once in a lifetime break that suddenly became so close to slip out of her fingers. After the crying session was over, she pulled herself together and made a resolve to address even this issue. Next day, she went out to seek medical help. Whoever would think of a thing like a diet to ‘gain’ weight? She went on a crash diet to do exactly this – gain weight. In a short period of time, she gained a reasonable amount of weight, and went right back in to complete the film.

One more significant episode occurred in the year 1951. Shyama was filming for ‘Sazaa’; she was the second lead to Nimmi and again, the third vertex of the love triangle that includes Dev Anand and Nimmi. The director and cinematographer of this film was Fali Mistry. Affections developed between the two, and two got married. Her family would have preferred a Muslim son-in-law. Fali Mistry being a Parsi, her father did not accept her new venture in life. She did get support from her mother, who was present at the small and quiet ceremony for the wedding. Her father  did not communicate with her for years. Shyama mentions in her interview that the ice between them was eventually broken when she gave birth to her first son, and went to him to get his blessings.

One of the understandings between Shyama and Fali was that she would continue to work in films. Apparently there were other suitors also, but as per herself, the proposals did not go further because the gentlemen did not agree to allow her to continue her work.

Through the 1950s, as well as early sixties, Shyama was in the top bracket of leading ladies in Hindi cinema. A golden period in her career, her popularity can be gauged by the fact that 82 of her films were released in the period from 1952 to 1960. In 1954 alone, 14 of her films came on the silver screen, and 13 in the year 1955. In all 27 films in a period of two consecutive years is a record in itself. An interesting aspect of her career has been that while she was in demand as the leading lady, she continued to do all kinds of roles, including second lead and even as a vamp. By her own admission, she was never too much hung up on being the leading lady, but was always more interested in the content of the role. In fact her only Filmfare award is for her performance in ‘Sharda’ in 1957 – as the best female actor in a supporting role. In the later part of 1960s, she transitioned into character roles and continued to work till the end of 1980s. Her last film as a character artist is ‘Hathyaar’ released in 1989.

Fali Mistry passed away unexpectedly in 1979, leaving behind a family of two sons and one daughter.

In the past 3, 4 days I was in travel myself, and was disconnected from the net for part of that time. Settling back after returning, as I processed through the email backlog, I got to see this message from Harish Raghuvanshi ji, informing about the sad demise of Shyama. She was 82, and as per her latest interviews some years back, she was quite satisfied with the full life she had led, and with her accomplishments on the silver screen.

As I sorted through the list of her songs as yet unpublished on our blog, searching for an appropriate song for this tribute, I came across this chirpy and playful song from the film ‘Ghar Basaa Ke Dekho’ from 1963. I had not heard it before. As I played this song, it struck me as so much Shyama herself, and I knew this is the song so suitable to go along with the write up about her. On screen, she leads the singing and dancing within a group of friends. Some of the faces are familiar, but I am unable to place any names. I request our knowledgeable readers and friends to help identify other actresses supporting Shyama in this song.

The words are from the pen of Rajendra Krishan and the lilting music comes from the mind of Chitragupt. The singing voices are of Suman Kalyanpur, Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Shyama gets to lip sync most of the lines of Suman Kalyanpur, and the lines sung by Usha Mangeshkar are shared between more than one of the supporting ladies on screen.

A wonderful expression of a philosophy of life, that one can surmise from her interviews, was very dear to Shyama herself. The thought behind the bubbly vivacity in this song is just the same thought that first made her raise her hand unhesitatingly to Rizvi Sb’s query on who would like to join the filming of the group song (qawwaali song in ‘Zeenat’). That is Shyama.

Or to put it more correctly now – that was Shyama. Only the memories remain now.

bichhad kar chale jaao hum se kahin
magar ye na kehna mohabbat nahin

magar ye na kehna mohabbat nahin . . .

Dear Shyama, RIP – Rest In Playfulness, Always 🙂

आह भरना है जिनकी क़िस्मत में

ज़िंदगी क्या है एक हंगामा
एक हंगामा रोज़ हो जाये
कहकहों के बगैर क्या जीना
ज़िंदगी कहकहों में खो जाये
जिधर जी में आया
जिधर जी में आया

आदमी को मिली हैं क्यों आँखें
देख ले जिस कदर नज़ारे हैं
बाग तेरा हैं फूल तेरे हैं
और तेरे ही चाँद तारे हैं
ज़िंदगी नाम हैं बहारों का
हम बहारों का रस निचोड़ेंगे
ज़िंदगी एक बार मिलती है
एक अरमान भी ना छोड़ेंगे
जिधर जी में आया

ज़िंदगी तेरी एक हलचल है
रक़्स है साज है तराना है
ज़िंदगी तेरी एक हलचल है
रक़्स है साज है तराना है
इक जगह पर क़याम क्या करना
हर चमन तेरा आशियाना है
एक पल भी ना फिक्र में बीते
मुसकुराता जा गीत गाता जा
और दुनिया जो राह में आए
एक ठोकर उसे लगाता जा
जिधर जी में आया
जिधर जी में आया
उधर हम चले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले
हमें दुनिया से क्या

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.

Remembering Geeta Dutt.

She passed away 45 years ago on 20th July in 1972, brining to close a tumultuous and tragic life, all of 41 years. A voice that held so much promise, and yes, she gave too, so many wonderful gems to remember her by. Just going by the numbers – the decade of 1950s carries close to 850 songs sung by her.
