This Week, That Year – 9

26Jun – 02Jul, 2012

Ah yes, long gap. My intention has been to make this series a weekly affair. But then – ‘man proposes, everybody else disposes’ keeps happening with me. 😀 . And so, intentions aside, this series has been a victim of my preoccupations / laziness / lack of creativity – howsoever I may say it. But of course, no excuses are relevant.

Rear view mirror scenario on the blog, of the week that was – 26th Jun to 2nd July of 2012. Let us take a look at the numbers first.

A total of 33 songs were posted in that week, at an average of about 4.7 songs per day. The pageant of the calendar covered is four decades – from 1936 to 1976.  Break up of films by decade is as follows,

1930s  –  2 (Both from 1936)
1940s  –  1 (Jugnu, 1947)
1950s  –  12
1960s  –  9
1979s  –  9

No film got repeated and so we covered 33 films during that week, Well actually, it is 32 films and 1 NFS. The NFS was a song by CH Atma.

As many as 9 films made their debut that week. And yes, 2 films got Yippeee’d in that week – ‘Duniya’ (1968) and ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974). Just as an aside, I did a quick check on the Yippeee status of films, till that week. When the week started, we were 3 years, 11 months and 7 days ahead of the blog initiation date of 19 July, 2008. Want to take a guess as to how many films had been Yippeee’d till then? I myself was a little surprised at the number. By that date, we had already Yippeee’d 135 films on the blog. Majority of this list is from the 1950s and 1960s. Surprise item is that there is one film from 1939. Besides, there are 12 films from 1940s, and 17 films from 1970s. The remaining 105 films are from the two decades of 50s and 60s.  We were 6,133 posts old on 26th June.

The week saw two major milestone achieved. On 28th June, with the song “Beech Bajariya Mori Chunariya Sar Se Sarki Jaaye” from film ‘Khoobsurat’ of 1952, SH Behari arrived at his first century milestone. He had made his debut on the blog on 1st December, 2008, and completed his first century in a little more than three and a half years. On 30th June, with the song “Koi Bechaara” from the film ‘Sannata’ of 1966, Lata Mangeshkar breached the 1,800 mark on the blog.

Of all the 33 films that were showcased that week, 25 have been Yippeee’d since then. Seven films continue to be tagged with ‘Pending’ status. One film, ‘Tangaawaali’ from 1955 carries the conditional Yippeee tag. Of the 9 songs in this film, 7 are already posted here. However two songs are not released on 78rpm record. The video of the film has not yet surfaced on public domain. So we tag those two songs as untraceable (UT). And pending their discovery, we tag the film with the status as conditionally Yippeee’d (Yc).

During this current week, two songs of pending films in this week have been posted as part of the ten year challenge series. One song from the 1973 film ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’  – “Haaye Bichhua Das Gayo Re”, was posted by Avinash ji on 27th June, and actually Yippeee’d that film too. And just a little while ago today, Atul ji has posted the song “Kaaraj Ki Jyot Sadaa Hi Jarey” from the 1936 film ‘Amar Jyoti’. So the numbers given above get modified as pending films reduced to 6 and the number of Yippeee’d films now is 26.

And with the song that I bring to the blog in this post, these numbers will change once again. This song is from the 1961 film ‘Hum Matwaale Naujawaan’. This film so far has only one song remaining to be posted. With this post on the blog, the film will also get Yippeee’d. Pending films list is further reduced to 5 and the Yippeee’d films number increases to 27.

The song is a real gem – a vintage Chitragupt creation. The music director is well known for his melodious commpositions. And this song is a very fine example of his creativity and talent. I listened to this song today, after tons of years, jiggling my memory of the radio listening days. And I am surprised that this melody has been waiting in the wings for so long. This film made its debut here on 28th October, 2010. The previous posted song (fifth one from the film) came on to the blog on 29th September, 2018. The final song of the film comes on board today, after more than eleven and a half years of its debut.

The song is such an endearing duet of Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. The lyrics are from the pen of Mahjrooh Sb.

The words of the song indicate as being a male-female duet. But since it is sung as a all female duet, it is possible that this duet may be a performance by two actresses on screen, one taking the role of the male person. The male person is trying to woo the lady and invites her to visit his alley, And the lady appears to be putting up a refusal to the gentleman’s advances.

A very lively melody, that is a hallmark of Chitragupt’s music. Jiggling memories of the wonderful music that we used to enjoy on the radio.

Listen and enjoy.

Blog Day :

5069 Post No. : 16987

Today’s song is from the film ‘Mala The Mighty’ (1948).

When I had first heard the name of this film, I wondered how ‘Mala’- a girl can be mighty ? I could never imagine that Mala could be a male’s name too. It was only after I grew up and toured the Eastern India (read W.B.) for official work, I came across this strange phenomenon – where, what is considered as an exclusive feminine name in the rest of India, could be a male’s name too ! Names like Mrinal, Vimal, Kamal, Jyoti, Mridul, Daya, Champavati, Devki, Dwaraka, Hiran etc. India truely is unique !

Film ‘Mala The Mighty’ was described as a costume drama, but clearly it was a C grade jungle film. The film’s other name was also ‘Sher-e-Jungle’. The film was produced by Basant Pictures of Homi Wadia. Homi was the younger brother of JBH Wadia and they were joint owners of Wadia Movietone, which was famous for making action/stunt films in the 30’s and the 40’s. The arrival of Fearless Nadia into Wadia Movietone strengthened its fortunes, The younger brother Homi Wadia fell in love with Nadia. he wanted to marry her, but his mother was against it. Therefore, only after his mother’s death, Homi married the then 51 year old Nadia and she became NADIA WADIA !

In 1942 there was a dispute between the brothers. The elder JBH Wadiawanted to make social and other genre films, while Homi wanted to continue with action/stunt films. He felt the financial risks were much less in action films and as such they already had a very good team of actors. In the end Homi Wadia formed his own Basant Pictures. The whole team led by Nadia joined Homi’s production house. Wadia Movietone had the non-human participants for stunt films, like the horse -Punjab Ka Beta, a Dog – Tiger and a Motor car – Rolls Royce Ki Beti. Homi Wadia made a new team with the Horse – Rajpoot, Dog – Moti, Motor Car – Austin Ki Bachhi and in addition they had a motorcycle – Runnio.

Home Wadia had the winning lead pair of Nadia and John Cawas for stunt films. By 1948, Nadia had reached the midpoint of her career. From 1933, in 15 years’ time she had done 28 action/stunt films. She slowed down and in the next 11 years she did 15 films only. Homi was always on the lookout for an actress who would take over from Nadia. First he got actress Radha Rani who did only 7 films for him and left. Then he found actress Leela- about whom no information is available. There was a time when several Leelas were acting in Hindi films – like Leela Chitnis, Leela Desai, Leela Chandragiri, Leela Gupte, Leela Pawar, Leela Sawant, Singer Leela Mehta and later on Leela Naidu. Out of these Leela Pawar, Leela Sawant and Leela Gupte were acting in stunt films of mainly Master Bhagwan. But Wadia’s Leela was not known. Anyway, she did only a few films, got married and left films.

Cast of the film was John Cawas, Leela, Dalpat, Azim, Shri Bhagwan, Shyamsunder, Waman Talpade and a few others. The film was also directed by John Cawas. A physical culturist, John Cawas was born in 1910 in Jubbulpore, Madhya Pradesh state. Athletic, handsome,  and with an impressive physique (he won the 1930 All-India Bodybuilding Championship), John was a natural choice for the action flicks that had become so popular in the 1930s.

Hailing from a Parsi family he appeared as an extra in Wadia Movietone’s ‘Noor-e-Yaman’ (1935) which led to supporting roles in that company’s films ‘Desh Deepak’ (1935), ‘Hunterwali’ (1935) and ‘Miss Frontier Mail’ (1936), all featuring stunt queen Fearless Nadia, who he would continue to work with in countless other films.

He quickly graduated to lead roles in pictures like ‘Toofani Tarzan’ (1937), ‘Diamond Queen’ (1940), ‘Stunt King’ (1944), ‘Black and White’ (1944), ‘Atom Bomb’ (1947), ‘Maya Mahal’ (1949), ‘Jungle Ka Jaadu’ (1955), ‘Magic in Baghdad’ (1956), ‘Diler Daku’ (1957), and ‘Circus Queen’ (1959). He acted in 40 films, out of which he worked in 26 films with Fearless Nadia. He also directed 3 films – ‘Mala The Mighty’ (1948), ‘Baghdad Ka Jaadu’ (1956) and ‘Zimbo Ka Beta’ (1966).

Not content with just acting, he also kept busy as an assistant director, director, and writer on numerous films, the bulk of which were produced by JBH and Homi Wadia. Wadias gave him a flat in their office building to live – free for life. John Cawas never married, and after retiring from films, he continued on as caretaker of the Wadia film offices until his death on October 4, 1993.

Another cast member was Azeem – who later on became well known as a Fight Composer in Hindi films. Azim Bhai (real name: Saiyad Azim Jafri) was one of the leading action directors in Hindi films. After a stint in the army he headed off to Bombay in 1934 and found work as stunt man at Eastern Art Film Company where he was put under contract and he worked on most of the company’s films like ‘Sher Ka Panja’ (1934) ‘Bal Hatya’ (1935), ‘Dharam Ki Devi’ (1935), and ‘Prem Raatri’ (1936).

When Eastern Art Film went out of business, Azim moved over to Saroj Company then found work at Paramount Film Company, Imperial Film, and Wadia Movietone where he worked both as a stunt man and as an actor. Afterwards, he joined Master Bhagwan’s team and acted in many action/stunt films.

By the end of the 1940s, he became a Fight Master independently. Azim became well known for his swordsmanship and he often worked alongside fellow stunt coordinator Master Douglas and two were tasked with training Dilip Kumar and Prem Nath in that sport for the film ‘Aan’ (1953). Azim has also trained many action directors and stunt persons including Ghani, Ravi Khan, Dawood (aka Hercules), Veeru Ustad, and Mansoor.

Azim Bhai coordinated the stunts on a number of fantasy films including ‘King Kong’ (1963), ‘Jadugar Daku’ (1962), ‘Parasmani’ (1963), ‘Sunehri Nagin’ (1964), ‘Hercules’ (1964), and ‘Aaya Toofan’ (1964), the spy films ‘Spy In Rome’ (1968) and ‘Kismat’ (1969), as well as the horror flicks ‘Bees Saal Pehle’ (1972) and ‘Ab Kya Hoga’ (1977).

He died on 23-10-1984.

There was another Fight Composer with a similar name – S Azimbhai (Sheikh Azim), who was much junior and he operated from 1954 to 1999. He is not to be confused with the senior one.

The third interesting name in the cast is of Dalpat – a sure name in action films. Dalpat (Joshi) was a stunt artiste. A tall, sophisticated and suave person mostly appeared in negative roles . Dalpat  was a part of Wadia’s unit since its inception and played the role of villain in the stunt movies ,which used to have Fearless Nadia and John Cawas or occasionally some other hero, apt in performing stunts.

Owing to the unprecedented popularity of Miss Nadia, other filmmakers also cast her along with John Cawas and Dalpat in their similar type of stunt movies for which she was known. After her era was over, Basant Pictures concentrated their energy in making mythological and Arabian Night movies, in which Dalpat always had a role. Later in the 50s, the studio system came to an end and actors and technicians who learned their art from their benevolent master Homi Wadia, looked for assignments from other producers.

One may call it destiny or lack of initiative on the part of Dalpat. He was offered only costume/stunt/religious movies by outside producers.  Dalpat, who did a stint as production controller for a few movies, was reverentially called Dalpat Kaka owing to his age, seniority and status by film folks. Age did not affect his appearance and he looked as suave as he was many decades earlier. He started his career by acting first in ‘Hoor e Baghdad’ (1934). He worked in 120 films. His last film was ‘Toofaani Takkar’ (1978).

I had seen the film ‘Mala The Mighty’, in its second or maybe the third run in the early 50s. The film was a rehash of the frequently used, but tested formula of Tarzan – slightly modified. Such stories never stopped entertaining people. In any case who wanted the story? They all wanted the stunts, animals, fights and dances.

The story of the film is,

Mohanlal (Azim) is a rich businessman. Once while on a trip in a ship, on a bad stormy night, the ship is wrecked. He survives but his wife dies, and his 2 daughters are missing. After 15 years he decides to search for his daughters in the jungles of Kaliyana, bordering the sea, hoping that they might have been washed ashore.

With him is Chimanlal (Shri Bhagwan) who was to marry one of the daughters, and a friend Professor Tatto (Shyamsunder). On the border of the jungle they employ Ali Bux (Kareem), a guide and his friend Trivedi, who is actually a gold digger looking for the golden treasure of tribal queen Sheen. On their way they are attacked by tribals but there comes Mala The Mighty (John Cawas) who saves them with his army of elephants. Mala is the legendary king of the jungle who fights lions, tgers and kills crocodiles etc. He takes the party to his tree top house and they find Leela (Leela) a 17 year old beauty living as his companion.

Trivedi is captured by the tribals. He strikes a deal with Sheen, the queen (Leela – in double role), to capture Mala, whom Sheen loves, in exchange for the gold treasure. Mala gets captured and is brought to the tribal chief Rajan (Waman Talpade) who wants to kill him. Meanwhile Leela comes there with the party to rescue Mala. Mohan Lal recognises both girls as his long lost daughters. Rajan tries to kill Mala, but Sheen saves him and gets killed. The animal friends of Mala arrive and the tribals run away. Leela hugs her father but refuses to go with him, choosing to remain with Mala The Mighty.

Today’s song is sung by the film’s young and upcoming composer Chitragupta Shrivastav, M.A. Lyricist was Shyam Hindi.
The End !

Blog Day :

4935 Post No. : 16783

Hullo Atuldom

21st January – the 57th remembrance day of the lively, lovely Geeta Bali – of the mischievous eyes and smile.

She was born Harkirtan Kaur in Amritsar and began her career at the age of 12. Her first adult role or heroine role came in 1946 i.e. at the age of 16. The film was ‘Badnaami’. Her popularity came with ‘Baawre Nain’ in 1950. She was seen in about 80+ films in her short career which ended with her untimely death in 1965.

To be truthful, I must say that my first memories of the lady was when I saw her dancing with Bhagwan Dada in the songs of ‘Albela’ (1951). This was during the Chitrahaar and Chhaayageet (television programs) days of my life. I didn’t know any other details about her and honestly speaking I didn’t bother to find too.

For me the actors lasted for as long as the songs played on the television. It must have been much much later in my life, say in the last 15-20 years that I have come to associate songs with the writers, music directors, films, singers, actors emoting on the screen etc. Same goes for Geeta Bali too.

It is only in the last so many years that I found that some of the songs which I love to hear are also great to see because of who it is filmed on. This is the truth of my liking “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re“; “Tadbeer Se Bigdi Huyi Taqdeer Banaa Le“; “Shaam Dhale Khidki Tale“; “Chaandni Aayi Banke Pyaar Saajana O Saajana“; and the best of them all “Ye Raat Ye Chaandni Phir Kahaan“. All these songs have one common factor – Geeta Bali. I am sorry I forgot to add another personal favorite in this list – “Shola Jo Bhadke Dil Mera Dhadke” – all lively lovely songs and a heroine to match. Today one more song got added to this list – a song from the 1956 release ‘Inspector’ – “Mera Akele Jiya Kaise Laage Re Piya“.

Recently after subscribing to a particular channel on my DTH I am having a daily feast of great, good movies and songs That is where I discovered that today is the anniversary of this beautiful lady who was also Shammi Kapoor’s wife. She was one Kapoor bahu who continued to work in films even after marriage and two children. Her popularity didn’t wane due to her marriage. Of course Jennifer Kendall (Shashi Kapoor’s wife) was not on the scene then I think.

After I discovered today’s connection with Geeta Bali I googled to see what the internet throws up about this yesteryear leading lady. I found this https://www.indiatimes.com/entertainment/celebs/10-things-you-need-to-know-about-indian-cinema-s-larger-than-life-actress-geeta-bali-256307.html  where her son Aditya Raj Kapoor has been quoted (I am reproducing here)

If you see the way Shammi Kapoor danced, that was Geeta Bali’s personality. My mother was a bigger and more successful star than my father when they got married. 

Of course then the article goes on to mention that she had worked with her future-in-laws before she got married to Shammi Kapoor. The article says that Surinder Kapoor (Anil and Boney Kapoor’s father) was Geeta’s secretary. And that she was a disciplinarian , adventurous, promoter of fine arts and how she used to take her kids on long drives. (Personally I didn’t know all this). That article is a good read.

I had messaged Sudhirji and Atulji in the morning asking if there were any songs filmed on Geeta Bali that are yet to be posted, and Sudhir ji replied that he has to look up. By then I had discovered an hitherto unheard, unseen (by me of course) song that has Geeta Bali playing a village girl whose friends are teasing her about her marriage being fixed with a city bred. I looked further and found that this was from a 1960 movie called ‘Bade Ghar Ki Bahu’. Looking up the ‘List of songs movie-wise’ told me that this song is yet to be posted and only the following two song from this film are on the blog.

Cham Cham Chamka Saara Jahaan

Meri Khata Bata De Phir Chaahe Jo Sazaa De

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, written by Tanvir Naqvi and composed by Chitragupt. The movie was directed by Kundan Kumar and had a cast of Geeta Bali, Kuldeep Kaur, Shammi, Abhi Bhattacharya, Sunder etc.

I must thank Sudhir ji for helping with cutting the video out of the movie of which I found a very bad print on YouTube.

Songs at Sl. No. 6, 7, 9, 13, 14, 15, 17, 23 & 24 are not yet posted in the blog.  The song I am presenting today is at Sl. No. 17, i.e. from the film ‘Balyogi Upmanyu’ (1958).  Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this mythological film’s songs composed by Chitragupt.  Here Mohammed Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar are accompanying Geeta Dutt for singing this song talking of hard work, fruits of hard work, farming, self-confidence, hope and a certain bragging attitude etc.  But the happy spirit of the song is infectious, and one can listen to it again and again.

The following 2 songs of this movie are posted in the blog, making this the 3rd song.

Baalyogi Upmanyu(1958)(2/8) MD-Chitragupta

Duniya Ke Anyaaiyon Anyaay Ki Hoti Khair Nahin

Mann Nirgun Ke Geet Ab Gaata Jaa

I found this song a few days ago, while looking for Chitragupt-Rafi songs, and I thought it is a very enjoyable and nice composition.  All three singers are in sync with the accompanying chorus.  I need to post some solos to even out the series.  There are too many songs by Geeta Dutt in obscure films.  I have not done bad so far, considering the songs were all new songs for me.   Hope to find some known, popular songs not yet posted to fit in the series.

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 08
———————————————–

14 Jan – Remembrance Day of Chitragupta

Chitragupta has recorded 260 plus songs with Rafi Sahab for Hindi and Bhojpuri films during the period 1950 to 1980.  Having gone through the whole list of these songs, I have come to the conclusion that I am a creature of radio.  The songs heard on radio long back ring a bell and I am drawn to them.  There are other well-known songs, which I had not heard on the radio as a child, they don’t make this short list of my personal favorites.

Chal Ud Ja Re Panchhi Ke Ab Ye Des Hua Begaana

Chali Chali Re Patang Meri Chali Re

Laagi Chhoote Na Ab To Sanam

Deewaana Aadmi Ko Banaati Hain Rotiyaan

Teri Duniya Se Door Chale Ho Ke Majboor

Koi Bata De Dil Hai Jahaan

Mujhe Dard e Dil Ka Pata Na Tha

Jaag Dil e Deewaana Rut Jaagi Vasl e Yaar Ki

Ye Parbaton Ke Daayera Ye Shaam Ka Dhuaan

There are some songs, which I have discovered in recent years and written posts for them too.  But since I can’t recall the tune and the lyrics and the feel of the song, by just looking at the mukhda, is not the songs fault.  So, if some people find their personal favorites missing from the above list of Rafi Sahab’s solos and duets under Chitragupta, they can blame me.

 Today is the 31st death anniversary of veteran music director Chitagupta, who has composed 1000 plus song in his long career from 1940’s to 80’s. In commemoration, I am discussing a Rafi solo, composed by Chitragupta and written by Manohar Khanna for the film ‘Zindagi ke Mele’(1956). Only two songs from this film are posted in the blog.

Kar Le Ri Solah Singaar
Tu Meri Heroine Main Tera Hero

It is said that Chitragupta never reached the status of A grade music directors.  But from where I can see, it doesn’t make any difference in the long run.  Because his compositions have survived the test of time, just like most of the melodious and memorable work done by all the music directors of the golden era of Hindi film music.  The field was crowded in the 50’s with talented and established MD’s and also with new aspirants.  The songs of all the composers are equally appreciated and loved.  I have always found the unheard (by me) songs of Chitragupt, very melodious and likable, with a spirit of their own.  They make their mark and leave an impression, with their rustic flavor.  I always make it a point to listen to his songs whenever they appear in the blog, especially solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar.  500 of these songs are already posted in the blog, as can be seen in the table.

Chitragupta 500 139 movies (1057)
Manohar Lal Khanna 46

The song is lamenting the society and its remorseless, paralyzed state in the face of injustice.  ‘Duniya Waalon’ are the mute spectators of an unjust practice, which those suffering it do not deserve.  And those who standby and do nothing to stop the injustice, cruelty and ugliness in the society are to be equally held responsible, because they had the means to oppose the practice and should have raised their voices.  But they chose to do nothing, and there have been very few social reformers in India who have actively worked to stop this practice of ‘dahej’.  The experience of civilizational development has shown that making criminal laws, has not worked in reducing the crimes.  Crimes continue to increase, despite stringent laws.  The reforms have to stem from the value system in the society.   Like many other social evils, the ‘dahej’ and dowry system has become a part of the landscape in our enlightened society.  Here we think that we are the culture and we have learnt to turn the other way, in the name of civilized and appropriate behavior.

The truth camouflaged into lies and lies camouflaged as truth.

The movie title ‘Zindagi Ke Mele’ reminds me of the iconic song, this unforgettable Rafi solo :

ye zindagi ke mele
ye zindagi ke mele
duniyaa mein kam na honge
afsos ham na honge


Song – Saji Sajaai Dulhan Reh Gayi Baabul Neer Bahaaye (Zindagi Ke Mele) (1956) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Manohar Khanna, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

dhan se baandhe..ea
preet ka bandhan..nn

roop na dekhe..ea
daulat dekhe..ea..ea
ye iss jag ki..ee reet

kaisa tumhaara nyaaye
saji sajaayi

o duniyaa waalo
kaisa tumhaara nyaaye

Today’s song is from the ‘1956’ movie ‘Sati Naagkanya’.  This is a film directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai – RN Mandloi. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.08.1956.

During the course of my exercise to pick up Hindi songs in Bangla films, I have gone through many Bangla films with their basic details such as the director, story writer, star cast, lyricist, music director, playback singers etc. In the list of lyricists in any Bangla film, if I find the name of the lyricist from Hindi films, I am almost certain that there would be at least one Hindi song in that Bangla film. In some cases, I found that though the name of the Hindi film lyricist was not mentioned, still one or two Hindi songs were found in such Bangla films.

During one of such exercise, I got to know of a Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962). The film was directed by Dilip Bose. Although, I could not find the name of Hindi lyricist for the film, the names of playback singers like Manna Dey, Mukesh, and Asha Bhosle gave me a glimmer of hope that there could be at least one Hindi song in the film. The music director for the Bangla film was Ved Pal. But I scored a blank on this count. However, during the searching the songs on the internet, I came across not one but three Hindi songs under the film’s title ‘Sorry Madam’ (Unreleased). Some further searches on the internet revealed a story behind this unreleased film which I was not aware of it. The film was to be a remake of Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) which was a box office success. Hindi remake with the same title was to be produced and directed by Dilip Bose who had also directed its Bangla version. But the film remained unfinished because the director, Dilip Bose went into deep depression after a personal tragedy.

Dilip Bose started his filmy career as actor in Bangla films ‘Kashinath’ (1943) and ‘Bichar’ (1943). I could not get any lead as to what he did during 1943-1960. In 1960, he directed his first Bangla film ‘Dui Bechaara’ (1960). The next Bangla film which he directed was ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) with Biswajeet and Sandhya Roy in lead roles. ‘Chaandi Ki Deewar’ (1964) was his first directorial venture in Hindi film. During his filmy career, he directed 5 Bangla films, 6 Hindi films and 10 Bhojpuri films. He also acted in about a dozen Bangla films which included Satyajit Ray’s ‘Charulata’ (1964). He also did some smaller roles in a few Bhojpuri films besides story and screen-play writing.

In 1979, after directing Hindi films like ‘Chaandi Ki Deewar’ (1964), ‘Sansaar’ (1971), ‘Thokar’ (1974), ‘Badnaam’ (1975) and ‘Sikka’ (1976), he decided to produce and direct the Hindi remake of his Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) with Raj Kiran and Kajal Kiran in the lead roles. Six songs, all rendered by Mohammed Rafi (some with Asha Bhosle) were recorded in December 1979 under the music direction of Chitragupt. However, Dilip Bose was struck with a personal tragedy when he suddenly lost his wife. Being a sentimental person, Dilip Bose was so much devastated by this tragedy that he went into deep depression for a long time and the film remained unfinished. After recovering from the depression, Dilip Bose concentrated mainly on directing Bhojpuri films. Dilip Bose died in 2002.

Even though 6 songs of the unfinished film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1979) were recorded in December 1979, no gramophone records or CDs were issued. So, they remained unavailable to the public. It was only after the death of the music director, Chitragupt in January 1991 that the tape containing the songs were discovered.  It was decided to release the song in an album. However, by that time, Hindi film music scene had changed and composition style of these six songs sounded old to the music companies who were not interested in releasing the songs. It was only after the success of ‘Veer Zara’ (2004) in which the old-style song composition of Madan Mohan became a hit that a fresh effort was made to release the songs. A music publishing company agreed to release the songs. The tape of the songs were sent to Belgium to digitally restore them to the highest sound quality. Thus,  the songs which were recorded in December 1979 had to wait for 30 years to get them released in an album ‘Teri Adaa’ in 2009.

I am presenting one of the six songs, “Dekho Ji Waado Karo Ke Door Kabhi Tum Na Rahoge” from the unfinished film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1979). The song is written by Kaafil Aazar which is set to music by Chitragupt.

[Acknowledgements:  Some of the information about the background history of the film with 6 unreleased songs are sourced from silkrd.files.wordpress.com and about Dilip Bose, from the book, ‘Cinema Bhojpuri’ by Avijit Ghosh.]

Blog Day :

4280 Post No. : 15521

In my last article, I had discussed playback singer and actor Shyam Kumar, who has acted in many Hindi films but remained unidentified for most of the Hindi film audience. In this write-up, I am presenting one more such actor who has made us to notice him in many films but remained unsung because he did very small roles in most of the films in which he got opportunity to act – mostly as a sidekick, a henchman, a doctor, barman, hotel manager etc.  Though his roles in most of the films have been very brief say, not be more than 5 minutes duration but whatever he did as an actor in varied roles, it was noticeable to the filmy audience. The actor is Keshav Rana whose face in the films may be familiar to many cine audience but may not be known by his name to them.

I had seen Keshav Rana in some of the films in the late 60s and early 70s during which I was active in watching films almost every week-end but I was not aware of his name.  His acting as a police inspector in ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972) in a comical situation has still remained in my memory.  I did not know his name until I started collecting the pictures of personalities connected with Hindi films during the last 5-6 years. It was a co-incidence that his image propped up when I was searching for something else. And the image of Keshav Rana emerged as a scene from a film ‘Dillagi’ (1966). That was the beginning of my work to identify him in many more films.

Not much information about the early life of Keshav Rana is available on-line. The only information I know from IMDb is that his full name is Keshav Singh Rana and he belongs to Faizabad in UP. From his filmography, it appears that he came to Mumbai to join the film industry in the later half of 1950s. His first film as an actor was ‘Anjaan’ (1956). His most active years was 1960s and 1970s when he worked in around 50 and 70 films, respectively. On a rough count, Keshav Rana must have worked in around 130 films during 1956-1986.

During the last fortnight, I have seen some important films with Keshav Rana’s  scenes under prominent banners like that of Shakti Samanta, Arjun Hingorani, Ramesh Sippy, J Omprakash, BR Chopra, Prakash Mehra etc. He did a variety of roles in the films but in most of the films, he was moslty typecast as  Police Inspector/Commissioner, Doctor,  Hotel Manager, Barman, a patron of mujra dances etc.  In others films, he mostly performed roles in negative shades and sidekicks to the main actors. Of the films of Keshav Rana, I watched, the only film in which he got a relatively longish role of Puran Bahadur in negative shade of a blackmailer was in ‘Dillagi’ (1966).

Keshav Rana excels in negative roles with a smiling face. But behind his smiling face lies his evil and manipulative designs to blackmail his victims. In this role, he generally avoids fighting and bloodbath in most of his films. He leaves these parts to other henchmen. For example, in films like ‘Dillagi’(1966) and ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’ (1978), he takes out his Rampuri knife but never uses it. Instead, he entrusts his fellow henchmen to fight it out. His light comical roles as a police inspector in ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972) with Hema Malini (as Geeta) and as a barman in ‘Shaan’ (1980) with Amitabh Bachchan have been well appreciated.

I have uploaded an audio clip incorporating along with the song, the screen shots of scenes in which Keshav Rana appears in some of his important films. Check out the audio link below.

‘Qatl’ (1986) appears to be Keshav Rana’s last film after which he did not act in any film. I could not get any information as to what he did thereafter.

Keshav Rana had played a small role of a patron of a kotha dancer in ‘Ganga Maiya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo’ (1962), the first Bhojpuri film.  The film was directed by Kundan Kumar. The star cast included Kumkum, Ashim Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Tiwari, Bhagwan Sinha, Helen, Leela Mishra, Kumari Khanna (Padma Khanna) etc. The story, screen-play and dialogues were written by Nazir Hussain. Songs were written by Shailendra which were set to music by Chitrgupt.

I am presenting the song ‘Luk Chhip Badra Mein Chamke Jaise Chanwa’ from the first Bhojpuri film rendered by Lata Mangeshkar and picturised on Kumkum who is dancing for the patron, Keshav Rana.

Listening to the song in audio clip gives a feel of the dance in a nautanki (folk theatre) in the rural Bhojpuri region. And why not? Both Shailendra and Chitragupt hail from Bhojpur region of Bihar.

Blog Day : 4020 Post No. : 15132

21st July, 1969 – a tiny me was waiting for the arrival of the school bus, around 6.40 am in the morning, at the end of the lane where we lived, in Karol Bagh area of Delhi. Three, maybe four other friends, going to the same school – executing the normal morning routine, with strap bags on shoulders, waiting to espy the school bus that we all recognized oh so well, to take a turn from a crossing about 200 metres away – to come, and to gobble us up, and to carry us to yet another day at the school. I think, it was too early in life to philosophize about the love-hate relationship with education, school and school teachers. It was still kind of an eager fun to travel in the bus and get to a classroom, and spend time watching teachers do their things on the blackboard, for us. Ah yes, the blackboards back then were actually black, and white chalks were then the standard instrument of communication between the teacher and us.

Sorry, I am jumping the gun – classroom and education is not the topic today; ‘waiting for the bus’ is. So as I was saying, four five of us kids were at the appointed place, at the appointed time – waiting to be picked. Some of these memories are so vivid and crystal clear in the mind, as if it was just yesterday. Ah yes, does seem like yesterday. I remember there was a bakery and confectionery shop right on the corner where we used to wait for the bus. It was a family run business – two brother partners. Over the years, the ownership of that shop has remained in the family, but the subject matter of the shop has changed from confectionery to designer clothing today. I still remember, the board on the shop – ‘Paul’s – Bakers and Confectioners’.

The kids’ interest of course was in the candies, toffees and chocolate items displayed in the shop’s show cases. The shop would be open before we reached the waiting point, because being a baker, he was catering to the early morning needs of milk and bread supply, to the early riser families, which, in those times, was practically all the families in the neighborhood.

Ah, sorry, I digress again – waiting for the bus it was. So the different thing that happened on that morning was the the bus did not come on time. It was kind of a pleasant, expectation filled feeling in the kiddy hearts – is the bus not coming today? Well, bus used to be late once in a while. And the tiny minds would be inventing conjectures about the school being closed for this or that unimaginable reason. But then, those dreams used to be shattered within a matter of minutes – late it would be, but then it would appear on the horizon, and the young footsteps would prance on to the four steps and into bus, starting another day at the school.

But that day, the few minutes extended into many minutes – and no bus. Although we were all in the mood to run back home and make a pompous announcement of the mystery of the disappearing bus. Of course, none had the courage to do so. It was a mindless wait, but the instructions to this kiddy platoon was to stay rooted to the bus stop area, and not to wander away – no matter how late the bus was. And we waited. No, the parents were not with us. We kids were in that gray transition zone of trust building age, that the parents would drop us at the bus stop, and head back home, with the confidence that the kid would certainly board the bus and spend another productive day at the school. And so we waited.

One of the more enterprising member of this waiting platoon ventured into the bakery shop and asked for time. “Seven o five”, we were told – goodness the bus was twenty five minutes late. This had never happened before. It was a first in the long years of the tiny age of experiences that the kiddy minds had accumulated till then. But then, in the absence of any instructions for this unexpected, first time, unheard of situation, we were clueless as to what should be done. So we waited – did not have courage to venture back home – the certain thought in mind was that parents would simply scold us and ask us to get back to the bus stop immediately and wait some more. There must be a valid reason – breakdown, accident, petrol finish – whatever, but it will come. So go back.

But it didn’t come. Another fifteen minutes passed. Still no bus. The uncomfortable squirming had now transformed into an anxious fear – have we already missed it? Has the bus come and gone and all of us missed it by a minute or something. Now the fear started to grow, since if the bus had already gone, then the fault would be ours that we were a minute or two too late to reach the bus stop. And so what were we doing, while ambling towards the bus stop from home, how did we reach the bus stop late? And why? All sorts of uncomfortable thoughts were now cycling through the mind. And we waited.

But the tension was unbearable now. The urge was to rush back home, but in the absence of an explanation, the apprehension of the consequences did not allow us to move. First time in the long years of tiny experiences, we were facing a helpless situation, the CPUs of mind were primitive and no conclusive directions were forthcoming.

Finally, we saw a ray of hope. We espied a senior student of our school, walking towards our bus stop. This person used to board from the next stop on the route, about half a mile ahead. He came, he declared, and we conquered. 😀 😀

He informed us that the bus would not be coming that day, since the school had declared a holiday. So head back home and take a day off. Whoosh. . . the mounds of stones of uncertainty were suddenly lifted, a new energy seemed to flow now, in place of the helpless limbo. I am very very sure, all would have had this ‘Whoosh’ experience sometimes in school life – an unexpected holiday announcement. It was like ‘छप्पड़ फाड़ के’ – I am using this phrase in hind sight. Of course I was not aware of this phrase or its implications at that time.

Then one of us had the curiosity strong enough to ask, what happened, why this unannounced holiday. The senior was not very sure himself. He said his father had called the school, and the school had announced the holiday – it was because of the moon landing. Totally bewildered with this information the tiny brains could not process, we externally expressed relief and happiness, lugged the bags over the shoulders once again, and walked back home.

It was almost one hour after the bus time, and of course the parents were totally surprised to see me back at the doorway. Dad asked what was the matter. And I recounted in brief, about the wait, the senior student, the information about the holiday announcement and moon landing. Dad started to laugh. He had already known about this news – well he was part of the editorial team that published the morning paper. So he already had the information about the event in the late hours of the previous night. But there was no news in the papers about the school holidays. So then he ventured to confirm – went to another neighbor’s place to make a call to the school. We did not have a phone at home in those times. He returned after a few minutes, and his smile confirmed the announcement, and laid to rest any apprehensions, that I would be held to fault, for making up such tall story.

I asked him, and he explained, quite lucidly of course – he had prepared the news story for print just a few hours prior. But much of that did not register into the brain. The moon landing, Apollo 11, US spacecraft, Neil Armstrong – some key phrases stuck in the mind. I took up the newspaper and read through the story. The quantum and the quality of significance did not sink in then. But yes, this idea did sink in very earnestly that the event that happened was some towering, huge, first of its kind accomplishment by USA. In the later years, as my interest grew in scientific topics, I would come to realize the depth of significance and importance of this huge event. The man had landed on another celestial body for the first time in the history (known history??) of the mankind. Yes, it was huge.

On 25th May, 1961, John F Kennedy, the then US President, made this proposal to the US Congress, to land a man on the moon before the end of the decade. Of course, the objective was achieved on 20th July, 1969.

And so the event, and its earth shattering significance has stayed with me now, for all these years – all because the schools declared a holiday that day – to celebrate this towering achievement of the human race. The man had reached the moon, and the school was closed in celebration.

Today, we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of that accomplishment. Over the past 50 years, the science of astronautics, and the technology had progressed by leaps and bounds. But the ‘man on the moon’ event has this envious and non-duplicate-able quality about it – what more to say. The US scientists and NASA took almost 8 years to accomplish the target that their famous president had set for them. Long before that, the Indian cinema had already responded with the film ‘Rocket Girl’, in 1962, and with this humorous and lilting melody created by Prem Dhawan and Chitragupt.

Searching for an appropriate song for this celebration, I chanced to discover this fabulous gem of a song that has probably been considered lost and consigned to the deep. I tried to search for songs with reference to ‘chaand’. Another song from this film – “Na Jaane Chaand Kaisa Hoga” – is an iconic, popular hit song that is already posted on the blog. When I read the words of the mukhda of this, I was very curious to search and pull out this song, because the mukhda kind of hints at traveling to the moon. With some time spend, I am able to locate this song in my collection. As far as I could check online, this song is not yet available. So I prepared and uploaded this song, and here am presenting it for this celebration today.

Listening this song, I am so surprised that this song has remained obscure all these years. A vintage Chitragupt melody that takes the listener on a journey of lilting extravaganza – so beautifully tuned and so exquisitely arranged. The humming composition simply is not getting out of my mind at this time – the lady wants to travel to the land of the moon and have a romance amongst the stars, and gentleman is not at all convinced that they would reach there alive. 🙂  The words of the song are so interestingly crafted – it is a veritable treat to listen to.

‘Rocket Girl’ is a film from 1962, produced under the banner of Film Sansar, Bombay and is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of actors is listed as Naaz, Sudesh Kumar, Jagdish Raj, Nilofer, Kanchanmala, Brahm Bhardwaj, Genius, Lal Bahadur, Mohammad Bhai, Ameer, Sandow, Shafi, Shammi, and Bhagwan Dada. Six songs are listed for this film, all from the pen of Prem Dhawan, with wonderful music compositions coming from the mind of Chitragupt.

I have no idea whether this film is about space travel, and visit to the moon. Listening to the two songs, it appears that his film is about space travel, I request our more knowledgeable readers to add more information about this film.
[Ed Note: Details about the film ‘Rocket Girl’ have already been posted by Arun ji, our in-house encyclopedia, with the earlier posted song of this film – “Na Jaane Chaand Kaisa Hoga”. The same are also available at Atul Movies – Rocket Girl (1962). Thanks to Aero Survey for this reminder.]

Fifty years of moon landing – and a surprisingly wonderful song to go along with – enjoy.

 

Song – Aa Ja Chalen Piya Chaand Waale Des Mein  (Rocket Girl) (1962) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Manna Dey, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

aa ja chalen piya chaand waale des mein
taaron mein hum jaa ke pyaar karenge
aa ja chalen piya chaand waale des mein
taaron mein hum jaa ke pyaar karenge
teri kasam wahaan khair nahin jaan ki
marna hi hai to yahin pe marenge

basti nai sitaaron mein basaayenge
gaye jo wahaan palat ke naa aayenge
basti nai sitaaron mein basaayenge
gaye jo wahaan palat ke naa aayenge
aisi baaton se hum nahin darenge
na na na na
teri kasam wahaan khair nahin jaan ki
marna hi hai to yahin pe marenge
oo oo oo
aa ja chalen piya chaand waale des mein
taaron mein hum jaa ke pyaar karenge

jhoothe hain sabhi ye kisse chaand waand ke
le chaloon tujhe main zulfon mein baandh ke
jhoothe hain sabhi ye kisse chaand waand ke
le chaloon tujhe main zulfon mein baandh ke
jaao akele hum aahen bharenge
na na na na
aa ja chalen piya chaand waale des mein
taaron mein hum jaa ke pyaar karenge
oo oo oo
teri kasam wahaan khair nahin jaan ki
marna hi hai to yahin pe marenge

kehte the tumhin
sitaare doonga tod ke
honge meri jaan
ye waade kisi aur ke
mil ke jiye hain mil ke hi marenge
na na na na
teri kasam wahaan khair nahin jaan ki
marna hi hai to yahin pe marenge
oo oo oo
aa ja chalen piya chaand waale des mein
taaron mein hum jaa ke pyaar karenge
oo oo oo
teri kasam wahaan khair nahin jaan ki
marna hi hai to yahin pe marenge. . .

आ जा चलें पिया चाँद वाले देस में
तारों में हम जाके प्यार करेंगे
आ जा चलें पिया चाँद वाले देस में
तारों में हम जाके प्यार करेंगे
तेरी क़सम वहाँ खैर नहीं जान की
मरना ही है तो यहीं पे मरेंगे

बस्ती नई सितारों में बसाएँगे
गए जो वहाँ पलट के ना आएंगे
बस्ती नई सितारों में बसाएँगे
गए जो वहाँ पलट के ना आएंगे
ऐसी बातों से हम नहीं डरेंगे
ना ना ना ना
तेरी क़सम वहाँ खैर नहीं जान की
मरना ही है तो यहीं पे मरेंगे
ओ ओ ओ
आ जा चलें पिया चाँद वाले देस में
तारों में हम जाके प्यार करेंगे

झूठे हैं सभी ये किस्से चाँद वांद के
ले चलूँ तुझे मैं ज़ुल्फों में बांध के
झूठे हैं सभी ये किस्से चाँद वांद के
ले चलूँ तुझे मैं ज़ुल्फों में बांध के
जाओ अकेले हम आहें भरेंगे
ना ना ना ना
आ जा चलें पिया चाँद वाले देस में
तारों में हम जाके प्यार करेंगे
ओ ओ ओ
तेरी क़सम वहाँ खैर नहीं जान की
मरना ही है तो यहीं पे मरेंगे

कहते थे तुम्हीं
सितारे दूँगा तोड़ के
होंगे मेरी जान
ये वादे किसी और के
मिल के जिये हैं मिल के ही मरेंगे
ना ना ना ना
तेरी क़सम वहाँ खैर नहीं जान की
मरना ही है तो यहीं पे मरेंगे
ओ ओ ओ
आ जा चलें पिया चाँद वाले देस में
तारों में हम जाके प्यार करेंगे
ओ ओ ओ
तेरी क़सम वहाँ खैर नहीं जान की
मरना ही है तो यहीं पे मरेंगे

Blog Day : 4003 Post No. : 15106

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 37
——————————————————————————————

This day, ten years ago – as such sections are generally titled in newspapers that carry a review of their news content from 50 or 100 or 150 years in the past. Well yes, our antecedents are more modest, and so we hark back 10 years into our collection on the blog. On 4th July, ten years ago, the films that got posted were,

 

Jauhri 1951
Dholak 1951
Chaand Mere Aaja 1960
Bank Manager 1959
Faulaad 1963
Jawaab 1970

 

Of these six films, three had made their debut on that date. The debut making films are ‘Jauhri’ (1951), ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ (1960) and ‘Jawaab’ (1970).

And then, of these six films, three have been yippeee’d so far – ‘Dholak’, ‘Bank Manager’ and ‘Faulaad’. Of the remaining six, one film is on the threshold of being announced as a yippee film. And this film is ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’. So we are posting the final song of this film, to formally announce this film as being yippeee’d today.

Reminds me, it would be an interesting analysis to know, how many of the Ten Year Challenge posts are resulting in the film being yippeee’d. Meaning that the film’s debut date and the yippee date are exactly 10 years apart.

The film ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ of 1960 has 7 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Of these, six are already showcased on our blog. We bring on board, the final song of this film today. It is interesting to note that, as per the Geet Kosh, six of the songs of this film are available on gramophone records. And the 7th, which is today’s song, is available only in the film’s soundtrack. Thankfully, the video clip of this song is available online.

The song is written by IC Kapoor. Music composition is by Chitragupt. And the singing voice is of Mohammed Rafi. On screen, this song is performed by Bharat Bhushan. The song is presented in a party, where apparently, the tone of the song does not quite jell with the mood and ambience of a get together of the rich and well to do people.

In any case, we bring on board the last and final song of this film, adding it to the list of films with all songs covered –  over a period of ten years – exactly. 🙂

Song – O Duniyawaalo Kaisa Tumhaara Ye Sansaar Hai (Chaand Mere Aaja) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – IC Kapoor, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

o duniya waalo..oo
oo oo oo oo
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
jhoothe ki jeet yahaan
sachche ki haar hai
jhoothe ki jeet yahaan
sachche ki haar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

bade bade bazaar saja kar
gali gali mein dhol baja kar
sona dikhla peetal bechen
gin kar paise poore letey
dil ka sauda jaan ka sauda
hota hai imaar ka sauda
khoon pasina bik jaata hai
maut aur jeena bik jaata hai
pooch raha hai tumse bolo
kaisa ye vyohaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

aansoo le lo aanhen le lo
hasrat le lo chaahen le lo
taambe ka ik tukda phenko
toote dil ki duaaen le lo
loot chuke ho duniya saar
is par bhi taqraar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

sapnon ki duniya ko chhodo
asliyat se munh na modo
kab tak jhoothi shaan rahegi
do din to ye jaan rahegi
saaz samay ka bol raha hai
raaz ke taale khol raha hai
kaath ki handiya jal ke rahegi
khota ye vyopaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ
ओ ओ ओ ओ
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
झूठे की जीत यहाँ
सच्चे की हार है
झूठे की जीत यहाँ
सच्चे की हार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

बड़े बड़े बाज़ार सजा कर
गली गली में ढ़ोल बजा कर
सोना दिखला पीतल बेचें
गिन कर पैसे पूरे लेते
दिल का सौदा जान का सौदा
होता है ईमान का सौदा
खून पसीना बिक जाता है
मौत और जीना बिक जाता है
पूछ रहा है तुमसे बोलो
कैसा ये व्योहार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

आँसू ले लो आहें ले लो
हसरत ले लो चाहें ले लो
तांबे का इक टुकड़ा फेंको
टूटे दिल की दुआएं ले लो
लूट चुके हो दुनिया सारी
इस पर भी तक़रार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

सपनों की दुनिया को छोड़ो
असलियत से मुंह ना मोड़ो
कब तक झूठी शान रहेगी
दो दिन तो ये जान रहेगी
साज़ समय का बोल रहा है
राज़ के ताले खोल रहा है
काठ की हँडिया जल के रहेगी
खोटा ये व्योपार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ
