Missing Films of 1960s – 31

The year 1964 saw the release of two films with titles starting with ‘Pahaadi’. One is titled ‘Pahaadi Jawaan’ and the second one is ‘Pahaadi Nagin’. Very rare, very obscure. Small mercies that at least one of them – ‘Pahaadi Nagin’ has some of its songs traceable. ‘Pahaadi Jawaan’ – nothing traceable so far.

In the 1950s, many new female singers joined Hindi film industry to try their luck in making their careers in playback singing. Many of them went into oblivion after a couple of years or so. Playback singing career of a few of them like Seeta Kalyanpur, Suman Purohit ended with one or two films. A few others like Meenal Wagh (11 songs during 1950-54), Kaumudini Munshi (10 songs during 1954-68) could remain connected with Hindi film music for longer period but their singing output was low. While some of them may not have pursued the playback singing career due to personal reasons, there is no doubt about the fact that with the emergence of Lata Mangeshkar in early 50s along with established playback singers like Geeta Dutt and Shamshad Begum, the newcomers faced tough competition from them.

‘Toofaani Tarzan’ – a picture with this name was produced and released way back in 1937. That film was produced by Wadia Movietone, and the title role of Tarzan was performed by John Cawas. The film had three songs, written by Pandit Gyan, and composed by Master Mohammad. All three songs are in the voice of Ahmed Dilawar. Interestingly, the film itself is available, as are the three songs on 78 rpm records published under the ‘Twin Records’ label.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 4
—————————————————–

It is winters in north India.  Delhi continues to be cold.  The day temperatures have started to rise and the sun shines brightly in clear skies these days.  However, the nights still continue to be chilly.  And I so heartily empathize with the sentiments that Atul ji had expressed in one of the posts a couple of days ago – that how inviting is the warmth of a quilt these days, and how the cold weather has effected the productivity and the progress of the blog ticker.  A ha, someone else with the same issues of how this year’s extreme weather has disturbed the working routines.  If one wakes up very early, like I did today, at around 5.10 am, मन ही नहीं किया कंबल छोडने का, and the snooze took away another hour and a half before I felt brave enough to leave the warm refuge of the covers.
