HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY to all our readers. May the 70th Anniversary of India’s Independence bring happiness, prosperity and peace to people of this great nation.

On this occasion, I present to you a Marching Patriotic song, in praise of the Motherland, from the film ‘Sipahsalaar’ (1956). Sipahsalaar means Chief of Army or Commandant . The name of this film is not well known because the lead actor,the composer or the director were not famous at that time. I said ‘ that time ‘ because in the next one year, this film’s hero – Shammi Kapoor would come in a complete makeover of appearance (without his funny unbecoming moustache) and style of acting with the film ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ (1957). Later on, he wrote a glorious chapter in the history of Indian cinema.

When one thinks of Helen, one thinks of a cabarat song(typically sung by Asha Bhonsle) where Helen, suitably under dressed by Indian standards, performs her dance and then bows out, playing no further part in the movie. There are many Helen fans though who would like to see her in meatier roles in these movies.

“Aji Bas Shukriya” (1958) was a movie starring Johny Walker and Geeta Bali. Yes, this movie had Johny Walker as the hero.

As can be guessed, this movie was a light hearted movie with fun songs in it.

Shikari (1963) was a B-movie, starring Ajit and Ragini. I had the pleasure of watching it a few months ago and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a typical jungle adventure story with the necessary ingredients of tigers, gorillas and such. This may not be to everybody’s taste but I do enjoy such movies, even at this age. 😉

“Parasmani” (1963) was the first movie to be released where Laxmikant Pyarelal were the independent music directors.Its “hansta hua nooraani chehra ” became the most popular song from this movie, though in reality Laxmikant Pyarelal regarded that song as their poorest effort in the movie.

These days, when people go on a long drive in cars, they switch on their car music system and enjoy listeneing to music. But that was not always the case. In olden days, when mp3 players and cassette players were not invented, keeping a record player in the car was not a viable option.

Even obscure movies can have wonderful music, as I have realised very well by now. And when it comes to finding out about obscure movies, Memsaab Story is just the blog. It is there that I learnt about obscure movies like “Miss Mary”,”Oonche Log”,”Ek Raaz”,”Aaya Toofaan”,”Reporter Raju” etc.Not just that, Greta (Memsaab) can identify lots and lots of humorous situations in these movies ( not intended to be humorous by the makers of these movies, incidentally).
