Today’s song or rather a qawwaali is from the film “Talwar ka Dhani”-1956. The film was made by Dwarka Khosla under his own banner Vikas Productions, Bombay. The film was , naturally, directed by him.

Dwarka was born in 1904 in Hoshiarpur, Punjab. He started from Silent films. His first Talkie film as a director was Josh-E-Jawani-1935. He directed 33 films. His last film was Reporter Raju-1962.

“Talwar ka Dhani”-56 was a Costume drama. It was actually a remake of the same name film made in 1938. I remember another such film which was remade with the same title and same story, after 14 years. Film Gunsundari was made as a Silent film in 1927. It was remade as a Talkie film, with the same title and same Heroine in 1934. The Heroine was Gohar Mamajiwala and both films were made by Ranjit, directed by Chandulal Shah. 14 years later, his nephew, Ratilal Punatar remade film Gunsundari in 1948, with Nirupa Roy as a Heroine. By coincidence, all the 3 films were successful and popular hit films, mainly due to a very powerful story.

Similar history is for one more film. Film Anarkali was first made as a Silent film in 1928, with Sulochana (Ruby Meyers) as the heroine. Later, a Talkie film with the same name, same story and same Heroine was remade in 1935. What’s more, film Anarkali was made once more in 1953 and even in this film Sulochana acted-not as a Heroine , but as Hero’s mother ! Thus, she became the first and the only actress to work in the same titled, same story 3 films. Ashok Kumar was the only actor who also worked in 3 films with the same Title-Kangan, in 1939, 1959 and 1972. Of course the stories were different in all films.

Actress Sulochana happens to be the only actress to have worked in most Same Titled films, in the same role. She featured as a Heroine in silent film Madhuri-28 and Talkie film Madhuri-1932, as well as Silent film Indira B.A.-1929 and Talkie film Indira M.A.-1934. She also featured in Silent film Bambai ki Billi-1927 and Talkie Bambai ki Billi-1936. She did 8 different roles in this film.

Talking of Remakes, Mala-41 was remade as Amar-54 in which actor Jayant did the same role in both films and Naushad was the MD for both films. Film Aurat-40 was remade as Mother India-1957 in which actor Kanhaiyalal did the same role in both films. Film Grihasti-48 was remade as Ghar basa ke dekho-63 and Malkin 53 was remade as Biradari-66. There are many such cases in Hindi films. However, the same Title, same artiste in the same role and same story films are rare.

The decade of 50’s was right in the middle of the Golden Period of HFM and 1956 was the midpoint of the 50’s. A total of 120 films were made in this year comprising a variety of Genres. Consequently as many as almost 30 MDs gave music in this period, but the major chunk of 50 Musical films was shared by 10 MDs only. Surprisingly, Naushad the king of popular music had not even a single film in this year. The share was – C Ramchandra did 3 films, SD Burman did only 1 film-Funtoosh, S-J did 8 films and 7 of these were Hit films (Rajhath, Patrani, New Delhi, Chori chori, Basant Bahar, Halaku and Kathputli). Then Hemant Kumar did maximum 9 films, but all were mediocre, Madan Mohan did 6 films-out of which 4 films were Musical….Bhai Bhai, 50-50, Memsahib and Pocketmaar. Husnlal-Bhagatram did 3 non descript films, but O P Nayyar blew his trumpet with 6 musical films out of his 8 films in 1956…Naya Andaz, Hum sab chor hain, Dhake ki malmal,CID, Chhoo Mantar and Bhagam Bhag. Chitragupta did 8 films, Ravi 1 film and Anil Biswas 3 films. ( data from HFGK)

Talwar ka Dhani-56 had a cast of Nadira, Manhar Desai, B M Vyas, Shammi, Dalpat, Kammo, Maruti, Sulochana etc. It was a costume stunt film.When I first went to see this film in its second run in 1960 or so, I thought that this must be based on the story of “King Arthur and his sword”, but I was mistaken. Probably the producers had not even heard who this Arthur was, and they based their story on Gujarat background.
Appropriately, the hero was also Manhar Desai(real name Malcom Alfredo Desai( 3-8-17 to25-2-92), a Goan who was a Popular Hero in Gujarati films those days.

The Vikas production film was directed by Dwaraka Khosla-a veteran of 33 films in 30 years from 1932(Veer kunal) to 1962(Reporter Raju).The Lyricists in this film were Anjum Jaipuri(for above song) and G.S.Nepali.The story,s/play and dialogues were by Masood. The title was very misleading,but many films with Talwar were produced,like Talwar ka paani,Bedhari Talwar,Chauhani Talwar,Bhawani Talwar,Nangi Talwar,Taj aur Talwar,Tilasmi Talwar and also a Talwarwala ! The story was…

Queen mother Sudha(Sulochana) sent her infant prince(Pakku) to a secret place through her Loyal sardar(B.M.Vyas) to avoid torture by the rebell Villain Megha(Anwar). Megha’s army chases them but they escape safely. Megha starts killing all the loyalists and Queen sends S.O.S. to her loyal Thakurs. From them come Vijay(Manhar),Rani(Nadira) and Gopu(Maruti). They enter the Palace in disguise of Dancers and meet the Queen. They hatch a plan to kidnap the Princess and reach her to hideout of Prince. This plan is passed on to Megha by Indira(Shammi) the loyal maid. Megha allows the plan and then captures Prince, Princess and these 3 fighters. But a helpful Saroj(Kammo), maid helps them to freedom.

These 3 fighters collect an army of Thakurs and attack Megha. There is a fight in which Megha is burnt alive, instead of the Prince.
The Queen makes Vijay her Vazir and marries him with Rani.

B M Vyas is one artiste who is not discussed much anywhere- like Ramayan Tiwari or Jayant. Only a few villains like K N Singh, Jeevan, Yakub, N A Ansari etc are discussed as popular villains. Less exposure hides some qualities of that artiste which remain unknown to the general public. How many of us know that B M Vyas was a trained singer and that he has given Playback in 4 Hindi films ? Surprised ? This is what I meant.

Actor Brij Mohan aka B.M.Vyas was one artiste who started as a singer, became a drama actor and then ended up as a villain, character actor. B.M.Vyas was born as Brijmohan Vyas on Vijayadashami (22 October) day of 1920 in Churu, Rajasthan. He is the younger brother of the well-known poet and lyricist, Bharat Vyas. He was married at the age of 17 when his wife, Jamna was just 11. They had 71 years of marital bliss before Jamna passed away in 2008. They had six daughters and a son. After acting in over 200 films in various languages, Vyas quit acting in the early 1990s. Then he moved to his residence in Kalyan. Having seen various shades of life, Vyas lived a contented life with his children and grandchildren.

On 15 January, 1944, actor Prithviraj Kapoor realised his dream when Prithvi Theatre, his own drama company came into being. Mahakavi Kalidas’ classic Shakuntala was chosen to be their first performance. The play’s cast included Uzra Mumtaz (younger sister of Zohra Segal) to play Shakuntala, Prithviraj Kapoor to play Dhushyant, K N Singh was cast as Rishi Kanva, Shakuntala’s foster father, Sati Devi (Bijoya Ray’s sister, Ruma Guha Thakurta’s mother) as Gautami, caretaker of Kanva Ashram who raises Shakuntala, and Hemavati (Daya Kishan Sapru’s wife) to play Shakuntala’s friend Priyamvada, among others. A young, 24 years old, B M Vyas was recruited as a singer by the drama company to sing songs in their play at a monthly salary of 75 Rupees.

Once when rehearsals for their maiden show were in progress and Vyas was done with his singing rehearsals, he was watching rehearsals of the cast. One of his songs for the play was “Bitiya Rani Kahan Kahan Tapasvi Log, Milna Julna Rehgaya Nadi Naav Sanjog”. The cast was rehearsing for a scene which needed Rishi Kanva to recite a mantra in Sanskrit, but actor K N Singh was having trouble reciting it. Prithviraj was trying to help him but was also faltering in saying it perfectly. Vyas , an expert in Hindi and Sanskrit, having immense knowledge of Ved Mantra was witnessing the proceedings for two days. It was possibly the blessing of Goddess Saraswati that inspired him to say the mantra aloud. On hearing him intone the mantra with such Brahminical precision, Prithviraj was very impressed and asked him to help K N Singh in saying the mantra correctly. But soon K N Singh informed Prithviraj ji that he will not be able to speak Devbhasha (Sanskrit) and that he should look for another artiste for the role. Prithviraj asked Prithvi Theatre’s manager Ramesh Saigal to approach Vyas for the role. Vyas , who had already acted in a Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana earlier, readily agreed and stepped into the role and thus started his journey as an actor.

While the rehearsals were still on, Vyas suffered a personal tragedy and had to go back home in Bikaner, Rajasthan. There he fell sick with typhoid. Here rehearsals were in full swing as the play was to premiere on 9 March, 1945 at the Royal Opera House. The final date was about a month away so Prithviraj asked him to come back as soon as possible. Vyas returned with his wife though he was still unwell. On the day he resumed his rehearsals he couldn’t do much due to frequent blackouts. The medication he was on, did not seem to help him much. He remembers the doctor from Kalbadevi who treated him for free; with his medication, Vyas ji’s health improved considerably in just three days.

The final round of rehearsals was done and finally the day of Prithvi Theatre’s first play to be staged, arrived. For the first performance of Shakuntala, many known names of the film industry were present at Royal Opera House. In the scene where Rishi Kanva makes an entry on stage he was required to raise his hands for blessing but Vyas was still weak and his hands started shaking. He tried a lot to control them but to no avail. He then remembered that he had seen many old people whose hands and head would involuntarily shake, so he started to shake his head too. The end result was so effective that during the play’s interval Prithviraj came and hugged him. He asked him how he developed that body language, Vyas told him about his genuine problem. Prithiviraj told him that he did a wonderful job and should continue with the same every time the play was staged.

Vyas had a long association with Prithvi Theatre, from 1944 to 1955. During this period he toured with the group to various cities and got an opportunity to showcase his singing and acting skills in various plays like – Deewar, Pathan, Aahuthi, Gaddar, Kalaakar, etc.

Vyas was interested in music since childhood. He is a self-taught singer. In the early 1940s Bharat Vyas called his younger brother to Mumbai. Soon Vyas ji got the opportunity to act and sing as many as twenty songs for the Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana written by Bharat . Music Director Naushad Sahab’s assistant Ghulam Muhammad who hailed from Rajasthan was very impressed when he heard Vyas’s voice in the play. He took him to meet Naushad Sahab who was working on the soundtrack of the film Pehle Aap (1944). Vyas got an opportunity to sing a group song “Hindustan Ke Hum Hain, Hindustan Hamara; Hindu Muslim Dono Ki Aakhon Ka Tara” with established singers G. M. Durrani and Shyam Kumar along with a new singer Mohammed Rafi. Since this song was supposed to be sung by soldiers on screen, Vyas and Rafi Sahab had to wear heavy boots and do a rhythmic march while singing to give an effect of an army troop. Such effects could not be added to a song with the technology available then; it all had to be done in real time. However the first ever song Vyas sang for a film was “Alakh Niranjan, Jai Jai Jai Manaranjan” from Bhartrihari (1944) which was picturized on Arun Ahuja (Govinda’s father).

Vyas gave playback in four films – Bhartrihari (1944, MD: Khemchand Prakash), Pehle Aap (1944, MD: Naushad), Maharana Pratap (1946, MD: Ram Ganguli) and Naulakha Haar (MD: R C Boral) before destiny took him on a different path. He remembers meeting Rafi Sahab years later who sweetly said “Pandit ji you changed our line (singing)” to which Vyas admitted that he did not see much of a future for himself in singing and hence switched to acting.

After Prithvi Theatre’s first play Shakuntala was staged, Devika Rani (owner of Bombay Talkies) was keen to know who played Rishi Kanva. When she saw the 24 yrs old Vyas she was surprised, she never expected to see such a young man. She offered him a role in a Bombay Talkies film to be directed by actor Jairaj but the film was never made.

When Ramesh Saigal moved away from Prithvi Theatre, he joined Chetan Anand’s company India Pictures as Production Manager. They were working on their next film Neecha Nagar (1946) when Ramesh Saigal offered Vyas a small role (protagonist’s elder brother) in the film. Prithvi Theatre never laid any restrictions on their actors; they could take outside work while working in their plays. Vyas was eager to face the camera and accepted the role with open arms. He is credited as ‘Vyas ji’s in this film. Soon he played a small role in Raj Kapoor‘s Aag (1948) where he is credited as ‘Brijmohan’. But the role that gave him recognition in the film industry was in Barsaat (1949) where he played actress Nargis’ father. For this film he is credited as ‘B. M. Vyas’. Thus Vyas ji’s film career took off and he never looked back.

He has had a long and very successful career of more than four decades and has been part of many memorable classics. He has always been a character artist who started his career with portraying old characters. His last film most probably was Maa (1991). Vyas was very keen to work with the great filmmaker V Shantaram and approached him for work. Shantaram was planning Do Aankhen Barah Haath (1957) and was busy casting actors to play six prisoners in the film. He did not tell him that he is Bharat’s younger brother who was the lyricist of the film. When Vyas approached him, Shantaram was initially a bit apprehensive due to his height but soon cast him as one of the prisoners, Jalia Nai. They had a month-long schedule in Kolhapur.

When the reels were sent to Rajkamal Studios for processing, it was found that due to dirt particles on the lens there were lines all across the frame in all the reels and the whole month’s hard work had gone to waste. They had to reshoot the entire thing. Vyas had a tough time managing schedules due to this re-shoot as he had other films in hand too.

B M Vyas acted in 175 films. His first film was Neecha Nagar-46 and last film was Oh,Darling ! yeh hai India-95. Vyas ji left for a better world on 11 March, 2013. (Adapted from articles from Maitri Manthan and Blog beete hue din, with thanks.)

Talwar ka dhani-56 had music by my favourite Melody Maker Chitragupta. Today’s qawali is sung by Yousuf Ansari aka Yusuf Azad Qawal (23-3-1920 to 27-2-1998). Yusuf also acted in 3 films. He sang 16 songs in 15 films. However his NFS and qawalis are more famous and more popular. Let us enjoy this one today.

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1958 :

We can see from the table of 1958 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 132 songs in Hindi movies released in 1958. The blog contains 102 of these songs. Out of 35 movies of 1958 where Lata Mangeshkar lent her voice, all her songs in 21 movies have been covered. So the balance 30 Lata Mangeshkar songs belong to 14 movies of 1958.

Alphabetically the first such movie is “Baalyogi Upmanyu”(1958). This devotional (Bhakti pradhan) movie was produced by Shankarbhai Bhatt and directed by Harsukh Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay.

Here is a Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Baalyogi Upmanyu”(1958). Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

What a wonderful song to listen to. It is a song which is bound to cheer the listners up with its positive message.

Song-Duniya ke anyaayion anyaay ki hoti khair nahin (Baalyogi Upmanyu)(1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

anyaay ki hoti khair nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal

sati ke sat mein tej chhupa hai aag ka
chheen sake na sukh koi mere bhaag ke
sati ke sat mein tej chhupa hai aag ka
chheen sake na sukh koi mere bhaag ke
aandhi ho barsaat ho ya toofaan ho
bujh na sakega deepak mere suhaag ka
sach ki hogi ee ee
sach ki hogi jeet sada
jismein hai zara bhi pher nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal

duniya ke anyaayion

jisko seencha bhakti ki jal-dhaar se
jisko paala aatma ke pyaar se
jisko seencha bhakti ki jal-dhaar se
jisko paala aatma ke pyaar se
phailti rahti dharam ki bel wo
kat nahin sakti kabhi talwaar se
deen dayaalu u u

apne in bhakton ki taale ter nahin
bhagwaan ke ghar ka nyaay atal

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 96
———————————————————————————–

25 November 2010, the date exactly ten years ago was a day when six songs were covered in the blog. But unlike earlier months of the year when all six or seven songs got covered before 10 AM, this day was a struggle. The first article (post number 3251) was posted at 8:39 AM. The sixth and final post of the day appeared in the evening at 7:44 PM. So it was a struggle, rather than a breeze, to publih the day’s quota of songs on this day ten years ago.

Here is the list of six songs that were posted on 25 November 2010:-

Post number Song Movie (Year) Status of songs of the movie
3251 O pardesiyaa pyaar ki bahaar leke Bahaar (1951) Movie YIPPEED
3252 Tod ke do nainon ka taalaa Daakaa (1959) 4 songs covered out of 6
3253 Dil apna aur preet paraayi Dil apna aur preet paraayi (1960) Movie YIPPEED
3254 Jai Raghunandan Jai Siyaram Gharaana(1961) Movie YIPPEED
3255 Neend ud jaaye teri chain se sone waale Juaari(1968) Movie YIPPEED
3256 Tum se bichhad ke chain kahaan ham paayenge Maharaja(1970) 2 songs covered out of 5

We can see that four movies out of six whose songs were discussed have already been YIPPEED by now. So songs of only two movies, viz “Daaka”(1959) and “Maharaja”(1970) are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (25 November 2020).

“Daaka”(1959) was produced by H Kheda and directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Starland Productions, Bombay. This movie had Ashok Kumar, Nirupa Roy, Maruti, Smriti Biswas, Badri Prasad, Balam, Bhupen Kapoor, Jugnu, Kathana, Kesri, Keshav, Maqbool, Pran, Ghani, Helen etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far. Here are their details:-

Song Date posted
Aasmaan aasmaa tu kyaa jaane 24 November 2009
Tod ke do nainon ka taalaa 25 November 2010
Dil phaanse de ke jhaanse 27 March 2016
Chaand ne kuchh kahaa taaron ne kuchh suna 17 October 2019

The fifth and penultimate song from the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that winters have set in, this song is quite a welcome song, where the lady invites her beau into her warm heart- “dil hai garma garam.” I have heard the “dil” being likened to “sheesha”, “patthar” etc, but it is the first time that I find a lady’s heart being likened to a cup of tea or a plate of pakodas. 🙂 “Garma garam dil”. What a heartwarming thought. 🙂

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

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4456 Post No. : 15932

In this article, I am discussing a classical dancer for whom the dancing was her passion, be it in the films or on stages. Her face was familiar to me as I had watched some of her films long back. But at that time, I did not evince interest in knowing her name. It was only after I joined the Blog in 2011 that I came to know her identity through none other than our own Prakashchandra ji, the veteran of our Blog in identifying the lesser known film artists with a high success rate. The name of the dancer is Rani.

Even after knowing her name, I still did not evince keen interest in knowing Rani’s background and the filmography. Like many lesser known film artists who worked in a few films and then went into the oblivion, I thought that Rani was one among them. But when I watched many Hindi film songs while writing my last four articles on the Hindi film dancers. I was surprised to note that Rani had danced with well known Hindi film dancers like Helen, Kumkum, Ragini, Madhumati, Bela Bose etc apart from her solo dances. This gave me an impression that Rani may have worked in more Hindi films than what her filmography on the various on-line sources indicated. After collating the data of her films from various sources and watching her dances in the films in case of doubts, I have come to a tentative figure of 54 films in which Rani had danced.

I was not sure about getting much of Rani’s background profile. However, recently, Tabassum who had worked with Rani in about half a dozen films in the 1960s, has posted a video ‘Dancer Rani – A Life Full Of Struggles’ on her Channel ‘Tabassum Talkies’. After watching the video, I felt very sad for Rani as in her later years, she has struggled a lot for her basic necessity of life. The Almighty has not been kind to her as now she is handicapped. It is really a pathetic situation for a dancer who used to say that dancing on the stage was like a worship for her and dancing in the films was means of her sustenance;

The following information has been paraphrased based on ‘Tabassum Talkies’ on Rani.

Rani (real name: Munawwar Sultana) was born in July 27, 1942 in Kolkata to Mohammed Gafoor Khan and Noorjahan Begum. She was adopted by her father’s close friend, Mohshin Khan who had no children. Since Rani was interested in dancing, her adopted father put her for training in Kathak under the tutelage of Ram Narayan Mishra and Krishna Maharaj of Lucknow Gharana.

At the age of 13, Rani started her filmy career in Bangla films. In 1960, her adopted father brought her to Mumbai to make her the Hindi film heroine. Rani flatly refused to work in Hindi films as an actor – not even in supporting roles as she was very passionate about dancing. So, she started her Hindi film career as a dancer in ‘Nai Maa’ (1960). Thereafter she got regular dancing numbers in many Hindi films mainly during 1963-69. In the 1970s, Rani’s dancing career went in downward mode and by the end of 1970s, she was almost unemployed.

During her active period of Hindi film journey, whatever she had earned was passed on to her adopted father to look after a large number of relatives who depended on her earnings. But in this milieu, a thought never occurred to her that she needed to save money for later period in her life when her dancing career in the films would come to a close. Due to failure of her love affairs when she was in Kolkata, she had decided to remain unmarried.

With almost nothing left for her subsistence, she met her former dancer colleague and the choreographer, Gopikrishna who took her as his Assistant Choreographer at a salary sufficient to take care of her minimum requirements.

As they say, when chips are down, one gets to face more problems. One day, Rani suddenly felt that her legs have lost stamina and she can no longer dance. She started using a walking stick and with this, her days of dancing were over. But her old age woes were not yet over. While catching a bus, she lost balance and fell, badly injuring her legs. She was no longer able to walk even with a stick. Instead, she now requires a walker.

As Rani was handicapped and there was no one to look after her, she got herself admitted to a charitable old age home at the outskirt of Mumbai. Presently, she is 78 years old and is an inmate of an old age home.

Rani had a younger sister, Rashida Khatoon who was a qawwali singer. She got married to Yasuf Azad Qawwal.

As I mentioned earlier, I have listed around 55 films in which Rani had danced. Some of the major films she worked were ‘Maaya’ (1961), ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962), ‘Mere Mehboob’ (1963), ‘Dooj Ka Chaand’ (1964), ‘Ganga Ki Lahren’ (1964), ‘Jaanwar’ (1965), ‘Dil Diya Dard Liya’ (1966), ‘Sangarsh’ (1968), ‘Sambandh’ (1969), ‘Heer Ranjha’ (1970), ‘Loafer’ (1972), ‘Pathar Aur Paayal’ (1974), ‘Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahi’ (1977) etc. Most of her other films were of B grade category in the genres of stunt, action and costumes.

Rani also worked as Assistant Choreographer to Gopikrishan in ‘Khubsoorat’ (1980), ‘Aanchal’ (1980) and ‘Kudarat’ (1981).

From our Blog, I could track down 20 songs of which 5 songs are yet to be tagged to Rani. In addition, at least 4 songs, the video clips of which are available are yet to be covered on the Blog. I am hopeful that some more songs would be found on video sharing platforms. However, there are some films of Rani which are not traceable. To that extent, her dance numbers in these films are as good as lost for the present.

I am presenting Rani’s dance song, ‘bairu bichuaa bada dukh de o ram’ from ‘Ganga Ki Lahren’ (1964). This is a classical raag-based song picturised on kathak trained dancers, Kumkum and Rani. Lata Mangeshkar sings for both the dancers. The song is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri which is set to music by Chitragupt. The end of the song is followed by a dance competition between the two dancers of about one-minute duration.

This is the 6th song (out of 8) of ‘Ganga Ki Lahren’ (1964) to appear on the Blog.

Blog Day :

4450 Post No. : 15910

Recently,(12th of July’2020 to be precise) the blog saw the 5000th song from the decade 1951-1960 covered on the blog.

This ‘melodious decade’ has around ten thousand songs (as per HFGK) and if we look from that point of view we are just on the ‘half-way mark’ (or little above now as the songs are getting added frequently to this decade, thanks to the collaboration of our team members and also because of projects like Blog Ten Year Challenge.

All songs of this decade may not be available. Only time will tell us what will be the final tally for the songs of 1951-1960.

I noticed that there are a few movies of this decade which are represented in the blog by just one song. I will start from the movie where it began for me during the very first phase of the current ‘pandemic’ or the ‘first lock-down’ period.

It so happened that during the ‘first lock down’ when everything was becoming abnormal gradually and we were getting acquainted with the ‘new routine’, one evening we all family members were preparing for a ‘card game’ before finally retiring for the day. And there was some discussion that ‘kaise din aa gaye hain’ or ‘how the future days are going to be’ and it just knocked the ‘right’ cord in my brain … ‘din raat badalte hain, haalaat badalte hain’, and what more one wants if we have that soothing voice in such situations to calm our mind and give relaxation and the much needed motivation too.

(But today’s discussion is not about Hemant Kumar ji).
So, I played the song on my mobile (that has become new order of the day now since songs are available on YT and easy to play, as the cassette-recorder has taken a safe place in the shelves 🙂 ).

When I checked on the blog, I was surprised that only one song from this movie ‘Naya Sansaar-1959’ was posted on the blog. That piqued my interest and I searched for the other songs of this movie. I marked one song, another philosophical song from this movie for my presentation. I had then planned to present this song but could not make it some how as I had then started my job here and working at our place was resumed after first thirty days of the lock-down. Later I planned to present it on the birth anniversary of the lyricist of this song – Rajinder Krishan. But then it got delayed more and maybe it was waiting for the ‘right time’ for me as I experienced ‘how days things were changing for me after coming back from Kenya 🙂 and like the today’s song after ‘din raat badalte hain’ it was ‘ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa’. Very soon I lost the ‘shortest tenure job’ of my life. May be God wanted me to rest and spend ‘quality time with my family (which I missed due to my stay in Kenya) :).

After that we had a ‘relocation of the rented accommodation’ in the same city.

So, a little bit changing of ‘surroundings’ again, and though some ‘minor health issues’ bothering (our Doctor is aware 🙂 ) it’s almost two months now at the new place. And as they say ‘this shall also pass’, yes!!
But one thing is constant for me and continues … ‘blog, music, songs’ …

Thanks to God and our well-wishers all of us are safe and healthy so far …

Today on the ‘thirty-third’ ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.06.1919-23.09.1987) of lyricist Rajinder Krishan, as a tribute to him, we are going to listen to a song penned by him from the same movie ‘Naya Sansaar-1959’.

‘Naya Sansaar-1959’ was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for ‘Shri Krishna Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Darshan. It had Jayshree, Pradeep Kumar, Kumari Nanda, Dhumal, Tun Tun, Sundar, Shammi, Majnu, Sheila Vaaz, Sai Subbulakshmi, Kamala Lakshman and others.

This movie had six songs, and all were written by Rajinder Krishan. Music for this movie was composed by Chitragupta.

Lata Mangeshkar, Hemant Kumar, and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

As mentioned above lyrics are Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Chitragupta.


Song-Ik ik pal mein badle zamaana (Naya Zamaana)(1959) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa

ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa

kal ki naar nadi ke paar ki
baat takat thhi saajan ki ee
kal ki naar nadi ke paar ki
baat takat thhi saajan ki ee

paaon mein jodi jhaanjhan ki
aaj lagey ye baat fasaanaa
ek fasaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa

pyaar ke badle ab to thhikaane

kahin pe rock n roll ke gaane
bol naye aur nayaa taraanaa
nayaa taraanaa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa

kal naa jaane is dharti se
chaand pe jaake ae pyaar karen
kal naa jaane is dharti se
chaand pe jaake pyaar karen
saanjh ke jhoole mein dilwaale
ulfat ka iqraar karen
kaisaa hogaa samaa suhaanaa
samaa suhaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa

“Son of Sindbad” and “Daughter of Sindbad” were both released in 1958. So it seems to me that they were twins. 🙂

“Daughter of Sindbad”(1958) was directed by Ratilal for Starland Productions movie, Bombay. The movie had Jairaj, Nadira, Pran, Maruti, Tiwari, Kamal Kapoor etc in it. The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Daughter of Sindbad”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi , Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Anjum Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta. Incidentally, Chitragupta was the music director in “Son of Sindbad” (1958) as well.

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


Song-Lahar chup hai hawa chup hai (Daughter of Sindbad)(1958) Singers-Rafi, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Anjum Jaipuri, MD-Chitragupta
Chorus

Lyrics

lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
rawaan hai kaarvaan apna

nahin hai naakhuda koi
khuda hai paasbaan apna
lahar chup hai
hawa chup hai lahar chup hai
hawa chup hai

jahaan bhi hum gaye
apni khushi ke geet gaaye hain
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

tareeke hamne jeene ke
zamaane ko sikhaaye hain
mohabbat ki kahaani hai
ye lahraata nishaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
rawaan hai kaarvaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai

kabhi toofaan se khele hain
kabhi lehron pe machle hain
kabhi toofaan se khele hain
kabhi lehron pe machle hain
sahaara leke himmat ka
hawa ke rukh bhi badle hain
hazaaron baar duniya ne ki(?) hai imteha apna

lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
ravaan hai kaarvaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai

khuda ki raah mein
duniyaa ki daulat deke jaate hain
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

safeena ab usi ke aasre pe
leke jaate hain
wo hi maalik hai duniya ka
wo hi hai mehrbaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai
rawaan hai kaarvaan apna

nahin hai naakhuda koi
khuda hai paasbaan apna
lahar chup hai hawa chup hai

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 66
———————————————————————————–

Ten years back on 31 august 2010 (tuesday), the first post of the day appeared at 7:39 AM and the sixth and final post appeared on 9:42 AM.
Here are the details of these six songs from six movies:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Ae jaane e jigar dil mein samaane aajaa Aaraam-1951 All songs covered
Ek main hoon ek meri beqasi ki shaam hai Taraanaa-1951 All songs covered

Husn e jaanaa idhar aa Saathi-1968 All songs covered
Koi aur duniyaa mein tumsaa haseen hai Pyaar Ki Kahaani-1971 02 songs posted

Four movies whose songs were covered ten years ago have already been YIPPEED. That leaves us with just two unYIPPEED movies namely “Naache Naagin Baaje Been”(1960) and “Pyaar Ki Kahaani”(1971) that are eligible for today’s Blog Ten Year Challenge.

“Naache Naagin Baaje Been” (1960) was produced by Devi Sharma and directed by Tara Harish for Janta Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Kumkum, Chandra Shekhar, K.N.Singh, Amar, Sunder, Parasram, Ratna, Sood, Kamal Mehra, Chandabi, Ratan Gurung, Rafiq, Indira Bansal, Helen, Agha etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it. The movie made its debut in the blog ten years ago. Five songs from the movie have been covered so far as detailed below :-

Beet gayi hai aadhi raat 31.08.2010
Ham jaan lutaa denge apni saajan ki jaan se pehle 23.10.2015
Main hoon gori naagan 30.112015
Le ke sahaaraa tere pyaar ka 04.04.2017
Gori naagan ban ke na chalaa karo 23.05.2018

Here is the sixth song from “Naache Naagin Baaje Been” (1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

This song is puicturised as a dance song where a lady is seeen wooing her beau. When I watched the lady dressed in Maharashtrian style sari, I thought that she looked familiar but who was she ? Lyricist sender Prakashchandra also sends details of the song and the movie, and he had mentioned this song as picturised on Helen and Agha. Me bad ! One does not expect Helen to be dressed in a sari and one often struggles to identify her when she is dressed in Indian attires. 🙂

Prakashchandra has sent the lyrics (as mentioned above) while Avinash Scrapwala has sent the BTYC related details.
