In one recent article of Sudhir jee on his “This week that year” series, he wondered why my spree of posting one “Anmol Ghadi”(1946) song everyday had a break of one day and subsequently the final song got covered after break of one day. I do not have any recollections of those days, but I am certain about the fact that the concept of YIPPying all the songs of a movie had not entered my mind by that time. My attempt was to cover all songs that I could come across. I may have missed stumbling against the one remaining Anmol Ghadi song on that day whereas I could locate it the next day. That is the only plausible explanation that I can think of.

I find that my first interaction with Pradeep Raghunathan took place on 22 march 2011. We have had some very intersting online chats together, some lasting for one hour and more.

I find some interesting details from the online chat logs. For instance, During our discussion on 15 april 2011, I mentioned that the blog had songs from 1500 movies, and that I expect the blog to one day reach 10000 songs. 🙂 Today we have songs from over 4000 movies and we are inching towards 16000 songs mark. 🙂

During our chat on 16 december 2011, he suggested providing serial number with each song. I told him that I do it internally in my excel sheet, access table etc. Today his suggestion is being followed in the blog starting from january 2017.

During these discussions, he discussed tagging of songs on IPOD. With time he started concentrating on those movies where all songs were covered. He relied upon online sources to guess if all songs were covered. I was keeping track of songs in movies by relying on online sources. I did not have HFGK with me at that time.

I can see from our early morning interactions at 1 AM on 22 november 2012 between two sleepless souls that the blog had 141 movies YIPPEED (though the term was not coined at that time) by 22 november 2012 whereas Pradep Raghunathan had tagged all songs for 132 of them. So the gap was only 9 movies for his at that time !

From july 2014 onwards, I have access to HFGK, thanks to the generosity of our blog stalwarts M/s Arunkumar Deshmukh and Sudhir Jee, and from then onwards YIPPYIng movies in the blog has become a planned activity rather than an incidental or chance activity.

Pradeep Raghunathan was doing tagging of songs of YIPPEED movies on his own. He was subsequenly joined by Khyati Bhatt, Aparna H M and Avinash Scrapwala in this tagging of songs mission.

It gives me some comfort that today on 26 september 2020 the blog has 1221 movies YIPPEED whereas the YIPPEE team of Pradeep Raghunathan and colleagues (Khyati Bhatt, Aparna H M and Avinash Scrapwala) are at just over 1000 movies mark. I need to get my act together and start YIPPYing some more movies seeing that team YIPPEE is threatening to catch up with the YIPPEED movies in the blog.

This year 2020 has seen 41 movies getting YIPPEED. THe record was set up in 2013 whe as many as 202 movies got YIPPEED.

Now a days we keep track of movies in the blog and we know which movies are nearing YIPPEEhood. The challenge often lies in locating the balance song or songs which are often rare songs.

“Baansuriya” (1949) was directed by Ram Narayan Dave for Nigaristaan Films, Bombay. The movie had Ram Singh, Geeta Bali, Om Prakash, Randhir, Kuldip, Sofia, Gulab, Uma Dutt, Shanti Madhok, Ramesh Thakur, Raj Pal, Sham Lal, Madan Kapoor, Raja Salim, Ram Avtaar etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the songs covered so far :-

Blog song number Song Date of posting
8745 Na shama ka qusoor na parwaane ka qusoor 22 September 2013
13190 Chaahe chori chori aao chaahe chhu chhup aao 25 April 2017
13298 Ye duniya kehti hai koi fariyaad na karey 1 June 2017
13538 Jo kar ke gaye barbaad hamen aati hai unki yaad hamen 20 August 2017
15764 Teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi 31 July 2020
15834 Dil tod ke jaane waale o 26 August 2020
15839 Tere saamne hum aansoo bahaayenge 27 August 2020

It can be seen that the movie was lying undiscussed in the blog since 2017. The year 2020 saw as many as three songs getting discussed in a matter of one month. Now only one song is left to be covered. That song is very much available.

Here is this eighth and final song from “Baansuriya” (1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

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

With this song, all the songs of “Baansuriya” (1949) get covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Aa ja aa ja ke jiya mora taras gaya (Baansuriya)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics- Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

maine to tere liye sab jag chhoda

While collecting information for writing articles on Hindi songs in Bangla films, I have often come across discussions and references about the beauty and the elegance of Suchitra Sen, Supriya Devi, Sandhya Roy and Sabitri Chatterjee in the golden period of Bangla film industry. In fact, during this period, all the four actresses ‘cornered’ a majority of Bangla films. In a way, they had partly contributed to the revival of Bangla film industry after a slump arising out of the partition of Bengal in 1947.

During this period, there was one more actress who was equally beautiful and had given outstanding performances in both Bangla and Hindi films who seems to have been almost forgotten now. The said actress is Sumitra Devi.

It is said that Sumitra Devi’s presence in the Calcutta (Kolkata) studios was so mesmersing that her co-stars Pradeep Kumar and Uttam Kumar used to visit the studios to watch her shootings even though they did not have their shooting schedule for those days. Shammi Kapoor who acted with her in ‘Chor Baazar’ (1954) had remarked that she was not only a beautiful actress but her etiquette and politeness brightened her beauty.

Today, August 28th is the 30th Remembrance Day of Sumitra Devi (22/07/1923 – 28/08/1990). She was born as Nileema (Lily) Chattopadhya in Shiuri (Bhirbum district), presently in West Bengal in a conservative brahmin family. Her father was a lawyer in Muzzafarpur in Bihar who was a nephew of Digambar Chatterjee, the then Chief Justice of the Calcutta High Court. After the Bihar earthquake, the family shifted to Kolkata where she completed her schooling with some interruptions in her education. In 1944, the family once again shifted out of Kolkata to Bankura due to the threat of Japanese bombing. After the end of World War II, the family shifted back to Kolkata.

During her school days, Sumitra Devi participated in dramas and also in amateur dramas after she finished her schooling. She was influenced by the acting of Kanan Devi and Chandrabati Devi. While watching a Bangla film ‘Samadhan’ (1943), she felt that she can act better than the lead actress in the film. She was so obsessed with working in the film that one day she gate-crashed into New Theatres Studio, met Debaki Bose and said that she would like to work in a film. Debaki Bose was surprised to see a young girl asking for a film role. But at the same time, he was so struck by her beauty that he immediately offered her the heroine’s role in his next Bangla film ‘Sandhi’ (1944). She was asked to come to the studio the next day after getting the permission from her father. However, her father would not give her permission to join films. It was through the intervention of New Theatre’s boss, B N Sircar whose father was known to Sumitra’s father that finally she got permission to join films.

Even though Sumitra Devi was taken for the Bangla film, ‘Sandhi’ (1944), she also got a role in ‘My Sister’ (1944) opposite K L Saigal. ‘Sandhi’ (1944) was released first followed by ‘My Sister’ (1944). Both films were instant hits making Sumitra Devi a star overnight. She won the best actress award from Bengal Film Journalists Association for her very first film. ‘Wasiyatnama’ (1945) was her second Hindi film.

However, Sumitra Devi’s becoming a star had an opposite effect on her domestic front. She had to face non-co-operation from the family of her first marriage at Bhagalpur which ended in divorce. Later on, she worked in successful Bangla films like ‘Pather Dabi’ (1947), Abhijog (1947) and ‘Joyjatra’ (1948). In all these films, she worked opposite Debi Mukherjee with whom she got married on 21/10/1946. A son was born to her on 01/12/1947. However, after 10 days, Debi Mukherjee died on December 11, 1947. It was speculated that he committed suicide.

Sumitra Devi took a sabbatical from films for a year. However, it was imperative that she kept herself busy with the work. With her parents looking after her son, she resumed shooting in 1949 and did ‘Swami’ (1949) and ‘Devi Chaudharani’ (1949) among others which became hits. In 1950, she shifted to Mumbai with her parents when she was offered a lead role in Bombay Talkies’ ‘Mashaal’ (1950) opposite Ashok Kumar. Her performance in the film was appreciated and she got more Hindi films such as ‘Ghunguroo (1952), ‘Deewaana’ (1952) and ‘Mamta’ (1952) in which she got the varied roles from dancer, queen and a single mother, respectively. She did the lead role opposite Kishore Sahu in ‘Mayurpankh’ (1954), in ‘Chor Baazar’ (1954) opposite Shammi Kapoor and a neglected wife in ‘Jaagte Raho’ (1956) and its Bangla version, ‘Ekdin Ratre’ (1956).

In between, Sumitra Devi continued to get Bangla films in the 1950s and 60s, the prominent films being ‘Dasyu Mohan’ (1955) in which Pradeep Kumar was her lead actor. and ‘Saheb Bibi Golam (1956), in which she played the role of the wife of the younger landlord (Uttam Kumar). Her role was subsequently done by Meena Kumari in the Hindi version, ‘Saheb Bibi Aur Ghulam’ (1962). In the national award-winning film ‘Andhare Alo’ (1957), she played the role of a courtesan. (Note:The above biography of Sumitra Devi is mainly based on ‘Sumitra Devi – Interview of 1952 in Cineplot and ‘Sumitra Devi’ by Jyoti Prakash Guha on IDMb).

From the second half of 1950s, most of Sumitra Devi’s films – both Hindi and Bangla did not fare well on the box office. In Mumbai, she started getting roles mostly in B grade films. In Kolkata, with the successful arrival of the new actresses like Suchitra Sen, Supriya Devi, Sandhya Roy etc, Sumitra Devi was relegated to the background. Her active years as an actress in Hindi and Bangla films virtually ended by the middle of 1960s. Her acting career comprised of 23 Hindi films and about 12 Bangla films.

It is said that in her later life, Sumitra Devi got married to a Mumbai-based businessman. She got some minor character roles to play in a few Hindi films in 1970s and 80s. Sumitra Devi died in Mumbai on August 28, 1990 at the age of 67.

‘Raja Harishchandra’ (1952) was one of Sumitra Devi’s early Hindi films which she had done in Mumbai. The film was produced by C M Trivedi and was directed by Raman B Desai. The star cast included Prem Adib and Sumitra Devi in the lead roles supported by Moni Chatterjee, Bipin Gupta, Lalita Pawar, Gope, Tiwari, Kammo etc. The film had 6 songs written by four lyricists – Bharat Vyas, Ramesh Gupta, Gulshan Jalalabadi and Qamar Jalalabadi. The songs were set to music by Husnlal-Bhagatram. Four songs have been covered in the Blog.

On the occasion of the 30th Remembrance Day of Sumitra Devi today, I present the 5th song from the film, ‘gori gori chaandni aur poonam ki raat re’. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and picturised on Sumitra Devi in the role of Rani Taramati. This song is accredited to Bharat Vyas.

When blog ten year challenge series was started in the blog the last year then the seris hoped to take up songs of those movies that were covered in the blog ten years ago and which were not YIPPEED despite the passage of one decade. That way, this series was also an aid in informing us about movies which offer us opportunities not only for Blog ten year challenge, but also subsequently about their potential YIPPiehood.

The project YIPPEE itself seems to have gone on a backburner, as is the project of seeing artists through to their centuries in the blog. The other project of discussing songs on th occasion of anniversaries of artists is somehow being maintained, thanks to the contributions of a few enthusiastic contributors.

Their enthusiasm often rubs off on me as well, and I too try and make some efforts, which have seen some progress in these projects. Three YIPPEED movie in August 2020 and one artist reaching century mark may not amount to much, but it still shows some progress.

To help me to quickly identify which movies and which artists to cover, I have build up some aids.

To help me identify movies nearing YIPPEEdom, Whenever a movie had two songs left to be covered, I mark movies them down in a earmarked excel sheetWhenever a movie had two songs left to be covered. I also have a list of songs of artists, and I know at a glance which artists are nearing their centuries.

When a song of “Baansuriya”(1949) was discussed yesterday (26 august 2020, it gave me the information that six out of eight songs from the movie had got covered. So, “Baansuriya”(1949) joined the shortlist of YIPPiable moviesyesterday.

When I checked up the availability of the remaining two songs, I found that they were available. So this movie can be YIPPEED easily.

Here is the seventh and penultimate song from “Baansuriya”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy). Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

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


Song-Tere saamne hum aansoo bahaayenge (Baansuriya)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

laakh hans ke chalo
laakh bach ke chalo
chhup chhup ke raho
tum milo na milo
gali teri ke phere lagaayenge
lagayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

tum badal jaao lekin na badlenge hum
maar daalega teri judaai ka gham
tere dar pe ye jaan ganwaayenge
gawayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge
dil ka na dard sunaayenge
sunaayenge
tere saamne hum aansu bahaayenge

“Bansuriya”(1949) or “Bansariya”(1949) was a social movie which was directed by Ram Narayan Dave for Nigaristaan Films Production, Bombay . The movie had Geeta Bali, Ram Singh, Om Prakash, Randhir, Kuldip, Sofia, Gulab, Uma Dutt, Shanti Madhok, Ramesh Thakur, Raj Pal, Sham Lal, Madan Kapur, Raja Salim, Ram Avtar etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the sixth song from “Bansariya”(1949) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Mulkraj Bhakti is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that this melancholic song was picturised on Geeta Bali. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

It seems that “dil tootna” was quite a flavour of 1949. This is the sixth song of 1949 in the blog containing the phrase “dil tod..” or “dil toot…”. 🙂


Song-Dil tod ke jaane waale o munh mod ke jaane waale o (Bansariya) (1949) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Mulkraj Bhakri, MD- Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 40th death anniversary :

meri awaaz ka tee…ee…eer
jaayega dil kob hichee…ee..e.er
meri awaaz ka teer
jaayega dil ko bhi cheer
khoye nafrat laaye ulfat
ye hasar hai meherbaan
sun le tu dil ki sadaa
pyaar se pyaar sajaa
sun le tu dil ki sadaa

(Hasrat Jaipuri)

How true these lines are from this song from ‘Tere ghar ke saamne’(1963).

tum mujhe yoon bhulaa naa paaoge
haan tum mujhe yoon bhulaa naa paaoge
jab kabhi bhi sunoge geet mere
sang sang tum bhi gungunaaoge
haan tum mujhe yoon bhulaa naa paaoge
ho tum mujhey oon …

(HasratJaipuri)

This song from the film “Pagla Kahin kaa” has gone down in history as the closest to the real impact and the engravings of Rafi Sahab, for the fans of hindi film songs. No question of forgetting a legend, which lives on through his voice. And how he does this! Till there is sound and voices in this mortal world and there is the ability in human race to hear and appreciate the sounds of the universe, his vibrancy and legacy, his echo and alaap, shall survive, in sha Allah.

It is 40 years already since the soul left this world. We are lucky that we have lived in this era, blessed to be able to listen to Mohammed Rafi Sahab’s songs.

That fateful day 40 years ago, was a Thursday. I remember that because it was the day of ‘Chhaayageet’, it was a weekly treat of watching film songs on TV. The program that day included songs of film ‘Aradhana’. If I remember correctly than ‘Gungunaa rahe hain bhanwre khil rahi hai kali kali” was one of the songs played that day. It was in the 10:00 pm English news that the sad news was announced. The next day was a Friday, may be second or third Friday of the holy month of Ramazan. As per the custom, the funeral was held after Friday prayers.

Another fact about this death and funeral is not often referred to anywhere, is that Ramadhan is considered to be most auspicious, for those who die during the month. It is said that the doors of heaven are kept open throughout the month for those pious people whom the Almighty chooses to call back to his fold. It is considered to be the best possible end (burial after the Jumah prayers included) second only to the death and burial in Makkah and Madinah. When I say this people may ask, what is good about a death? Death is the only certainty, inevitable fact that all creation comes to an end. The end has to come one day, earlier for some and later for others. Here is a prayer which is uttered as soon as the news of demise is heard:

Inna lillahiwainnailayhi raji’uun
Meaning : Surely to Allah we belong and to him we shall return.

Let’s go back to the funeral of Rafi Sahab. It is said to be the largest funeral procession Mumbai has ever witnessed. I read in the newspapers and magazines later on that the people heard the news on radio in far off places and left for Mumbai. Without thinking of anything, whether buses/trains are available or not, whether they will reach in time for a last glimpse of the smiling face of their beloved Rafi Sahab. The television news coverage that Friday evening is unforgettable for me. There was a sea of people all around the road in front of the Masjid at Bandra, where the ‘namaaz-e-janaaza’ was held. Plus it was raining heavily, but the people were not deterred. They all wanted to accompany their favourite singer to his final resting place. There were film stars and superstars, technicians and musicians who had witnessed the Rafi magic in the recording studios, people indebted to him for some reason or the other, people who had known him personally and met him a few times and then there were the lakhs of people who knew him only through his voice heard on radio or in the cinema theatre in playback to big and small film actors.

Surely for these people on that fateful Friday, it was the Rafi voice “awaaz ka teer”, which brought them to the ‘janaaza’ as it went ‘jaayegaa dil ko bhi cheer”. The expression ‘Dil ko cheer’ is such an apt description of the phenomena’s effect on the discerning. It means to be such a pain so as to split the heart, literally.

This blog has the ‘Sharf’ of having begun with a Rafi song on 19th July 2008. I made use of the word ‘sharf’ here as it means more than the ‘mere honour’, it means good fortune and the ‘zarf’ too. More so, in the context of all the good intentions with which this blog began and continues to maintain, purity of intentions, I mean. Reminds me of a ditty I wrote in the comments of this post which is the 1000 Rafi songs milestone for the blog :

A memory, momentous,
A drop, which shapes.
The legacy that lingers,
It is the purity which prevails.

The blog also has the honour of celebrating the its very first event of Rafi sahab’s 28th death anniversary on 31/07/2008, with this song. The blog was a thirteen day old baby on this day and celebrating its first remembrance day for Rafi sahab.

This was the thirteenth song to be posted on the blog and third Rafi song after the first song of “Anokhi Raat” and Love in Tokyo. After such auspicious beginning there was no looking back. More than 3000 Rafi songs are posted in the blog, but still thousands are yet to be posted. All the songs referred above are of the 60’s decade, which belonged to Rafi sahib as a matchless playback singer, as the preferred on screen voice of all the stars and male actors of the era. And a first choice for the full genre of playback singing, for all the composers.

In the deeper recesses of the conscious thinking mind, I find it astonishing and unbelievable that a playback singer with a name “Mohammed Rafi” should have found such adulation, recognition, love and affection, not to mention the fan following in the post-independence/ partitioned India. He was the voice of the singing stars visible on screen. His own face was never visible. May be some photographs could appear in magazines. But as far as I can remember his voice was always synonymous with his smiling face, with the high forehead. It could be because we grew up to love his songs through radio. He himself must have found it surreal and felt as if he is in a dream, will wake up in no time to find the dream has ended. He ruled the musically inclined hearts of the nation with his benign self. He unwittingly ruffled a few powerful feathers. Despite all this, he achieved his own superstardom long before the term “superstar” was coined for Rajesh Khanna. It all materialized as destined or divine decree not due to any PR machinery or the favoritism, nepotism etc. Rafi sahab is akin to equestrian Gold Medallist in the Olympics, no less, for 2 decades. I exaggerate, will compromise and make it 15-16 years or like 4 Olympics in a row.

Yes there was space for a versatile playback singer in the 50’s, which really was not vacated by anyone. But then the likes of Shankar-Jaikishan, O. P. Nayyar, Ravi, Madan Mohan, Roshan and S. D. Burman, found the one to suit all the moods of music they were looking to create. It was Naushad who explored and exposed Rafi Sahab as the all-encompassing singer in musical block busters “Aan’, ‘Deedar” ‘Baiju-Bawra” etc. The second and third generation of maestros couldn’t help, but lap up the goodies on offer. The stupendous abilities of such a divine voice quality must have felt like a dream come true, Naushad sahib included. It gave wings (say freedom) to all those composers to create and compose at will anything and everything, which they did and enriched the hindi film music. Rafi sahab was only too glad to be able to deliver. And the beneficiaries are us, hindi film music fans, whoever may have the copyrights.

I would say even the super musician, R D. Burman created some of his best with Rafi sahab. I am not prejudiced in thinking of “Pyar ka Mausam”, “Abhilasha”, ‘Teesri Manzil” and ‘Caravan” as among the best of RDB. Who can make a list of best of RDB in creativity and melody and can ignore songs like “ goriya kahan tera des re” “wadiyan mera daaman” “Chekhush nazaare”“tum bin jaun kahan” “rut hai Milan ki”(this is distinctly different creation), and all six classics of “Teesri manzil”, not to forget ‘kya hua tera wada” and the qawwalis. I know some people do manage to exclude these in their enthusiasm, but sorry I can’t.

Rafi sahab achieved all this or rather was granted as a blessing by the Almighty, without having the ambitions of this status. He was right in pointing towards the sky and saying “sab upar wale kee den hai” whenever he was praised and appreciated. There are very few such souls who have the grace of accepting all “Rab di meher” and being so humble with it, without artifice.

Another quality which is often attributed to Rafi sahab is ‘innocence’. So here is an innocent sounding song, with the purity of heart in the one and only divine voice of Rafi Sahab. This will be among the last Rafi songs of 40’s decade remaining to be posted. The film is “Baansuriya” (1949). Composers are Husnlal-Bhagatram and Mulk Raj Bhakri is the lyricist. The words of the song “teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi“ are quite apt, if one wants to say that we are missing Rafi sahab’s voice. But I would go with “dil bhar bhar aaye ghadi ghadi”, which is every day because of the range of emotion that Rafi Sahabs different renditions invoke in me.

Having written so much in this long post, I am still feeling as if I have not expressed all that I wish to. I will quote Mirza Ghalib here :

Ya rab wo na samjhe hain na samjhenge meri baat
De aur dil unko jo na de mujhko zubaan aur


Song-Teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi (Baansuriyaa)(1949) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi
dil bhar bhar aaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi

mujhko kyun dil se bhulaa diyaa
ye kya kiya haay kya kiyaaaaa
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi

jab se saajan tum door huye ae
jab se saajan tum door huye ae
dil ke armaan sab choor huye ae
dil ke armaan sab choor huye ae
jab tum hi nahin ho saathh sajan
jeene ki nahin koyi aas sajan
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi
dil bhar bhar aaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi

kuchh apna pataa diyaa na mujhe ae ae
kuchh apna pataa diyaa na mujhe ae ae
kabhi bhool ke yaad kiyaa na mujhe ae ae
kabhi bhool ke yaad kiyaa na mujhe ae ae
kaise dil ko samjhaaun main
kab tak yoon ashk bahaaun main
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi
dil bhar bhar aaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi ee
teri yaad sataaye ghadi ghadi
haay ghadi ghadi

Blog Day : 4323 Post No. : 15612

Today’s song is from a C grade Costume film of the 50s, Aan Baan-56. It was made by D D Kashyap, under his own banner, Kashyap Productions, Bombay. Needless to mention that the film was directed by himself. Music was by Husnlal-Bhagatram, with assistance from krishan Chander. The cast of the film was Ajit, Mahipal, Nalini Jaywant, Usha Kiran, Pran, Ulhas, Manmohan Krishna and many others.

On Saturday, 16th May morning, I got a call on my Mobile. I picked it up and saw that it was flashing name of Bharatbhai and his photo. A little surprised to get his call at early morning hours, I took the call and as usual said,” Good Morning Bharat ji. Aaj subah subah yaad kiya ?” There was a pause and an unfamiliar voice said, ” Main Bharat ji ka beta baat kar raha hoon.” I knew he was ill. My mind suddenly became alert. For next 5 minutes his son was giving me details of his illness and finally he ended with those dreaded words, ” last Friday,8th May ko raat mein 1230 baje Bharatbhai ki death ho gayi “.

I was stunned. I gave my condolences to the bereaved family and kept the phone. I sat still for five minutes. Then I saw a missed call from Sadanand ji. I gave him a call. He too had got the news. We shared our thoughts and it was decided that Sadanand ji will announce this news on our WA group.

Old people parting is not unusual, but when the departed one is close to you or a family member, one does feel the pain. Bharatbhai was around 87 year old, recently he had a Hip Replacement operation and thereafter he was not well. I had spoken to him in the Hospital as well as when he came back home also. However, his going was a pinching shock.

I came to know Bharatbhai in or around 2013, through our Blog. Those days we did not have the WA group. We started exchanging songs and related matters on phone and e-mails. Then he and Nitin ji came calling to my house in early 2014, first time an Atulite visited me. I was very thrilled. I introduced my wife to them. We had deeper friendship after that. One of his friends, Mr. Chavda, stays in our building and is my friend too. During the last 7 years we visited each other’s houses many times, for meetings or otherwise also. When some important person used to visit me, I used to call him also. Thus he had met Biren Kothari, Shishir krishna Sharma, Rajnikumar Pandya, AK ji and others first time at my place only.

In 2018, he, myself and Sadanand ji visited Surat to meet Harish Raghuvanshi ji. Even in this age, his enthusiasm and memory was praiseworthy. The last we met was in Sadanand ji’s house. He missed one meeting in my house in this January, due to his health issues.

Bharat ji was Tech Savvy at this age also. He had a good collection of books. He actually xeroxed few books from his collection and gave me, on my request. Jolly and friendly Bharat ji can not be forgotten easily. Losing him is a great loss. I pray for his Eternal Peace and Attainment of Moksha !

Life goes on……

Today’s film was a routine film. The period in which such films attracted audiences had long ceased, but still some such films were made, albeit in much less numbers. Costume films had a fixed theme of story. Good and Old King, bad Vazir or close relative, beautiful daughter, her handsome singing lover, final sword fighting and all is well in the end. Same story with some ship-shaping here and there used to be presented. In this connection I remember one thing.

In 2004, a book called “Why we tell stories’, written by Christopher Booker was published. It is a book having more than 700 pages-728 pages to be exact. The book says “There are only 7 (Seven) basic plots in the whole world. They are recycled again and again in Novels, movies, Plays and Operas. These are
1.Overcoming the Monster
2.Rags to riches
3.The quest
4.Voyage and return
5.Rebirth
6.Comedy and
7.Tragedy “.

After this book was published, there was a chaos and criticism started. ‘New York Times’ also jumped in. The author coolly replied all points and stuck to his statements. If we look at Hindi films, I personally feel that what the author has said is true in our case. Only thing is that our film stories are always a clever mixture of all or some of the above points. A peculiar thing in our film industry is the ” Story Department” in some film production companies. Members of this department have Extra Para Perception and Extraordinary imagination. They can mix all 7 story elements in one ‘Khichdi’ and make a film. There are many cases where over enthusiasm on their part has killed the Box office prospects of even good films.

I quote her an example. Prakash pictures had become famous for their 2 Block buster hit films based on Ramayan stories. So when their third Ramayan film ” Ram Baan”-48 came, anxious audiences crowded the theatres, but within few days, the theatres were almost empty and the film flopped so badly that it could be called a ” super duper Flop ” ! The reason ? The story department of Prakash pictures and their wildest imaginations !

The team of Mohanlal Dave and Pt. Girish twisted the original Ramayan story so crudely (or cruelly?), that the audience could not digest it. The film showed a) Shurpankha’s swayamvar in Ravana’s darbar – which is not in Ramayana b) Sita wants in this film the Suvarn Mrig skin for NOT her Kanchuki, but as a gift to Laxman’s wife Urmila ! Too much wild imagination. c) Ravan gives his Sandals to Seeta to walk out of the Laxman Rekha…utter foolishness and finally d) Shabari goes to Rama to invite him and when he comes, introduces Hanuman and Sugriva to Rama. She describes how Ravana took Seeta to Lanka etc. Total lies !

These story department twists to Ramayana story, put Prakash Pictures to such a loss, that they came out of it only after Baiju Bawra, 4 years later. The story of film Aan Baan -56 is also a twisted form of the set pattern. Nothing really new in it. Naturally the film was not a success. The director D D Kashyap was an all rounder in films.

DHARAM DEV KASHYAP aka D.D.Kashyap was born in 1910 at Jalalpur in UP(now Uttar Pradesh,but earlier called United Province), in a middle class family without any connection to films or music. When DD came to the college in Lucknow, he was awed by the silent movies. By 1931 the Talkie started and he decided films as his career. He knew that it is only Bombay that can extend opportunities to him. Reaching Bombay, he laboriously worked up his way,doing menial jobs on the way, to the V.Shantaram camp. He was a learned man with a flair for writing, hence he got a chance to become an assistant to Munshi Aziz, while writing dialogues for AADMI-1939.(I checked the credits of Aadmi and truly his name features in the list of assistants, in the Dialogues section.) I can only imagine how he must have felt then.
Looking at his enthusiasm, Shantaram promoted him as one of his asst.Directors in PADOSI-1941. He even did a cameo role of OMKAR in Padosi.
Now he had enough experience and his first film as a Director was NAI KAHANI-1943. Then came a series of films, Chand, Nargis, Aaj ki Raat, pyar ki Jeet, Badi Behan, Kamal ke phool, Aaram, Do sitare, badnam, Naya Ghar, Shama Parwana, Aan baan, Halaku, Maya(Dev Anand film), and Dulhan ek raat ki-67.

he has also written the story of 10 o’clock-58.

He was an actor, writer, s/play writer, dialogue writer, producer as well.
Actually he produced Badi behan-a hit film, Aaram-another hit and Shama Parwana.

He died on 5-9-1988,at Bombay.

Today’s song is a duet of Asha and Mubarak Begum, which, I guess, is the only such duet. The song has a suspicious resemblance to another song from a later film – which I am unable to recollect the name now. If any reader knows, please write in comment section.

“Surajmukhi”(1950) was directed by O P Dutta for Madhuban, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana, Shyam, Gope, Yashodhara Katju, Hafeez Khan, Randheer, Mukri, Cuckoo, Durga Khote etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Surajmukhi”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The movie had three lyricists (Rajinder Krishan, Aabid Gulrez and Gulshan Jalalabadi) but no lyricists have been mentioned against eight of the songs in HFGK. However, the uploader of this song on YT has mentioned Rajinder Krishan as the lyricist. so I have gone with that.

Geeta Dutt had sung seven songs in the movie. This movie also had two songs by Lata and one by Shamshad Begam. So it would seem that Geeta Dutt had sung for the leading lady viz Rehana. However, only the audio of the song is available and so we can only guess about the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this rare song.


Song-Aabaad rahe tera ghar munshi…karen kya bata o bhula dene waale (Surajmukhi)(1950) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

aabaad rahe tera ghar munshi

hamen apna keh kar mita dene waale
karen kya bata o bhula dene waale

hai ro ro ke lut jaana aa aa aa
kismat hamaari

tujhe kya kahen o bhula dene waale
tujhe kya kahen o bhula dene waale
hamen apna keh kar mita dene waale

rula kar to aa jaa aa aa
mita kar to aa jaa
mita kar to aa jaa
tujhe dhoondte hain dua dene waale
tujhe dhoondte hain dua dene waale
hamen apna keh kar mita dene waale
karen kya bata o bhula dene waale

The movie had ten songs in it. Nine of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of these songs:-

9 Meri ankhiyaan ho gayin chaar o dilbar chaar baje 15491 22-Mar-2020

The eighth song from the movie was covered in 2015. After that there was a big time gap of nearly 5 years because the remaining two songs were not available. When I checked up a few days ago, I could locate the remaining two songs. The ninth song was covered on 22 march 2020.

I saved the rarest song from the movie for the last. Here is this light hearted song from “Farmaaish”(1953). This song is sung by Sulochana Kadam and chorus. Khawar Zamaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

In this song, the lady asks her beau to bring her a table fan as the days have become hotter and she is finding the heat unbearable.

I think this must be the only song in HFM that discusses Fan. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us if they are familiar with some other songs dealing with Fans.

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

With this song, all the ten songs from the movie have been covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

“Mr Chakram”(1956) was produced by Sant Singh-Paachhi and directed by S P Bakshi for P S Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Shyama, Ranjan, Roopmaala, Sundar, Om Prakash, Chandrashekhar, Randhrre, Kumkum, Ramesh Thakur, Abbaas, Tripathi, Ramlal, Kathhana, Mohan etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Nakshab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The movie had six Asha Bhonsle solo and one Lata Mangeshkar solos, and one Rafi solo. I have a feeeling that all female solos were picturised on Shyama but I cannnot be sure as only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Ek gham ka din bhi aaya (Mr Chakram)(1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-J Nakshab, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

ek gham ka din bhi aaya

ae dil hansi hansi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya

ae chaand chaandni mein duniya basaaney waale
duniya basaaney waale
ae chaand chaandni mein duniya basaaney waale
duniya basaaney waale
lut’te hain besahaare

ek gham ka din bhi aaya
do din ki zindagi mein
barbaad ho gaye hum
ae dil hansi hansi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya

afsaane gham ke laakhon dhhaalenge hosh waale
dhhaalenge(?) hosh waale
afsaane gham ke laakhon dhhaalenge hosh waale
dhhaalenge(?) hosh waale
munh se nikal gayi hai
munh se nikal gayi hai
ek baat bekhudi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya
do din ki zindagi mein
barbaad ho gaye hum
ae dil hansi hansi me
ek gham ka din bhi aaya

itna nahin ke dil ki dhaaras bandhaaye koi
dhaaras bandhaaye koi
itna nahin ke dil ki dhaaras bandhaaye koi
dhaaras bandhaaye koi
jhhoothhi tasalliyaan bhi
jhoothhi tasalliyaan bhi
kaafi hain bekasi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya
do din ki zindagi mein
barbaad ho gaye hum
ae dil hansi hansi mein
ek gham ka din bhi aaya
