Today’s song is from the film ‘Road No. 303’ (1960).

This film was special in many respects. Let’s start with it’s title. Among the total of 3240 Talkie films made in the first 30 years of Hindi films (1931-1960), only 19 Hindi films had titles which actually had numbers in their Titles. The first one to have a numerical figure in its title was Miss 1933 (1933) and the last one to have it was today’s film Road No. 303 (1960). Just for information of our readers, there were 7 such film titles in the 1930’s (total films 924), only 4 such film titles in the 1940’s (total films 1191) and 8 such film titles in the 1950’s (total films 1125). There were hundreds of film titles having figures in words, like ‘Ek Thi Ladki’, ‘Do Gunde’, ‘Teen Batti Char Rasta’ etc. but numbers in titles were a novelty.

Secondly, this was the first Hindi film of the music director C Arjun. He started by giving music to the first Sindhi film after the Independence – ‘Abana’ in 1958. (The first Sindhi film ever in India was ‘Ekta’ (1940), made by Wadia Movietone, directed by Homi Wadia).

Thirdly, this was the first and the only Hindi film in which Mehmood and Shubha Khote were the leading pair. In all other films, they were in the side roles.

‘Road No. 303’ was made by Mahesh Pictures, Bombay and it was directed by Dharam Kumar. He was born on 26-11-1919 and had directed 14 Hindi films. His first film as a director was ‘Jalte Deep’ (1950) and his last film was ‘Truck Driver’ (1970). Dharam Kumar expired on 28-7-1993, in his 75th year. The 6 songs of this film were written by Naksh Lyallpuri (3) and Jaan Nissar Akhtar (3).

‘Road No.303’ is truly an obscure movie as no information is available about it on any internet site. This name too is not known to many. The film was produced by Ratankumar and Bhikhubhai. The story of film is….

Manohar (Maqbool) is murdered and his body is thrown on the Road No. 303 in the dead of the night. Ramesh (Mehmood), his younger brother who loved him much is devastated. Manohar was an honest Police officer.

Ramesh is in love with Sadhana (Shubha Khote), a young and educated daughter of Seth Deen Dayal (KN Singh) . Seth ji is a well known philanthropist rich man, running destitute homes for widows and orphans.

Ramesh starts finding out about the cause of murder and he learns that soon Manohar was to arrest a big person in society for some serious crime. Munna (Bhagwan) , a small-time pickpocket and a friend of Ramesh, also helps him . Sona (Helen) a dancer in ‘Red Lite Cafe’ is also in love with Ramesh and helps him.

Meanwhile there are attempts to kill Ramesh too. Finally, with the help of Sona, Munna, and Sadhana, Ramesh finds out that the murderer is nobody else but Seth Deen Dayal who runs a racket of trading women and children to Arab countries.

Sadhana is very firm and in the end Seth ji is arrested for murder of Manohar and for his illegal work.

The debutante composer C Arjun was one of those composers who never got what he really deserved. In spite of giving music to 22 films, he always remained a “lesser known music Director”. His best known film was ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ released in the same year (1975) as film ‘Sholay’ of Ramesh Sippy and it did an unprecedented business amongst the mythological films.

His full name was ARJUN PARMANAND CHANDNANI and he was born in Karachi on 1-9-1933. After partition his family settled in Baroda. He inherited his musical talent from his father who was a singer. He became assistant to another Sindhi music director Bulo C Rani. He started his career with composing for a Sindhi film ‘Abana’ (1958) (first Sindhi film in Independent India).

His first Hindi film was ‘Road No. 303’ in 1960. Off and on he got films under nondescript banners with B/C grade cast. That he created memorable music nevertheless did not do much to change his fortunes. His teaming with the lyricist Jaan Nisar Akhtar would rank at par with the best of Sahir Ludhianvi’s composed by SD Burman or Roshan. He also composed a number of non film songs.

He gave music to 22 Hindi films, besides films in Gujarati, Sindhi and Haryanvi languages. Some of his films were, ‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’, ‘Punarmilan’, ‘Ek Saal Pehle’, ‘Jai santoshi Maa’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’, ‘Karwa Chauth’, ‘Aankh Ka Taara’, ‘Lambu In Hong Kong’, ‘Ustad Pedro’, ‘Mangu Dada’, ‘Gunahon Ka Mandir’, ‘Nawab Sahib’, ‘Kanoon Aur Mujrim’, ‘Hamari Kahani’, ‘O Mere Jaane Jigar’ etc. His film ‘Susheela’ (1966), which was incomplete, was completed and releasd as ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ in 1977 in which “Bemurawwat Bewafa Begaana e Dil Aap Hain” song sung by Mubarak Begum and “Gham Ki Andheri Raat Mein” sung by Talat and Rafi became very popular.

I still remember the interview of C Arjun by Ameen Sayani on radio in Binaca Geetmala program, a long time ago about the story behind as to how a popular song was written by Indivar and how it was tuned, for the film ‘Punarmilan’ (1964).

C Arjun said – “One day we (both me and Indivar) were travelling in a BEST bus while returning home in the evening, from the recording studio. Both of us were sitting on the same seat and the bus was packed full with passengers. After 2 or 3 stations Indivar saw that a young and very beautiful girl boarded the bus and she came near our seat standing in the middle amongst other standing passengers. Indivar was repeatedly looking at her time and again. After 4 or 5 minutes, Indivar asked me to leave my seat and offer it to the pretty girl standing besides us.

After a bit of hesitation I agreed and gave my seat to her. To my surprise, Indivar didn’t talk to her even once while she was sitting beside him for about 20 -25 minutes before she de-boarded the bus at one of the stops in our way. When I asked Indivar why he didn’t talk to her?. He replied today he shall de-board the bus with me at my residence bus stop & answer me when we shall reach my home. We de-boarded the bus at my residence. On reaching home Indivar said “My dear Arjun, thank you so much for offering your seat to her and letting her sit beside me and I have imagined and thought of some lines while she was standing and then sitting beside me”. Indivar there and then spoke those lines to me and they were “PAAS BAITHO TABIYAT BAHAL JAYEGI, MAUT BHI AA GAYI HO TO TAL JAYEGI”.

And then Indivar wrote this whole song there and then in about one hour and asked me to compose its tune the same night. We sat together after our dinner and composed its tune before we went to our beds late at night. Indivar stayed with me that night and left for his home next day morning.”

C Arjun died on 30-4-1992, due to a massive heart attack when he was recording a non-filmi Sindhi song in the Sterling Studios, Mumbai.

Sometime back there was a story that C Arjun started his career with acting and that he was the hero in film ‘Malhar’ (1951).

There is irrefutable proof available on Cinegems and Cineplot, that the hero of ‘Malhar’ was none other than Arjun Bakshi, and NOT C Arjun, MD.

Arjun Bakshi who had acted in some other films, including ‘Daku ki Ladki’, and Naujawan etc, was later a screenplay writer in Hindi films. He is the father of the actress Jyoti Bakshi (of ‘Bullet’, with Dev Anand). Jyoti and her father separated later and Jyoti had a very pathetic and sad demise, a few years back.

Few years back one senior member from RMIM group had reported that he had met Arjun Bakshi in a Music shop in Canada in 2003. And as written above, C Arjun had died in 1992. So, once for all it is clear, once again, that C Arjun the composer and Arjun the actor were two different persons. In addition, C Arjun’s nephew – Shyam Chandnani, who is in Dubai appeared in a music related Blog- Songs of Yore and commented that C Arjun had never ever acted in any film or visited Canada, in his lifetime. That was another final confirmation.

This film was only the second film – after ‘O Tera Kya Kehna’ (1959), in which Mehmood and Master Bhagwan came together. Today’s song is filmed on these two comedians. Though this was C Arjun’s first film, he had used Rock and Roll music for his songs. In today’s song he has tried a jugalbandi in Rock n Roll music with Bharat Natyam Music. Two duets were filmed on the lead pair. This song was quite popular in 1960 and many readers might remember it also.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this song was not yet featured on the Blog. Perhaps, it was waiting for me to write on it. Enjoy this duet featuring Rafi and Manna Dey.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 32
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 19 March 2012) saw four songs from four different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5656 Mit nahin sakta kabhi likha huaa taqdeer ka Sansaar (1951) 6 songs covered so far out of 14
5657 Nasheeli hawaa hai samaa hai suhaana Commercial Pilot Officer(1963) 3 songs covered so far out of 6
5658 Wo zindagi to thhi ab tak teri panaahon mein Neelkamal(1968) Movie YIPPEED by now
5659 Pukaarti hai muhabbat kareeb aa jaao Daastaan e Laila Majnu(1974) One song covered so far out of 11

One movie out of four, whose songs were covered on 19 march 2012 has since been YIPPEED. The other three movies are eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today.

“Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) is one of the eligible movies.

“Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) was produced and directed by R L Desai for Chandra Art, Bombay. The movie had Anaamika, Kanwaljit,Dheeraj Kumar(special appearance), Jayshree.T., Satyajeet, K.N.singh, B.M.Vyas, S.N.Tripathi, Dulari, Mohan Sherry etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. One song has been covered so far and that was ten years ago.

So after a gap of exactly ten years, here is the second song from “Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Iqbal Qureshi is the music director.

The song is picturised on Jayshree T, with Anamika and Dhiraj Kumar also visible as royals. Laila Majnu tale is a medieval tale, that is why Jayshree T dance should not be called a cabarat dance, but that dance and also the music sounds and looks every inch a cabarat dance song to me. 🙂 Hindi movies are in any case not known for attentions to details and accuracy of facts.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

dil mein hain aen sainkadon toofaan

jab tumko apni laaj nahin
main tumse kehne aayi hoon

hum gareebon kaa tum thhe sahaaraa
jab pukaaraa tumhi ko pukaaraa
jab pukaaraa tumhi ko pukaaraa

main tumse kehne aayi hoon

dil mein jalte hain kitni chitaayein
apne aansoo kahaan tak chhupaayein
apne aansoo kahaan tak chhupaayein
is paap ki maari nagri mein
jeene ka thhikaanaa aaj nahin
kyaa laaj rakhoge duniyaa ki
jab tumko apni laaj nahin
main tumse kehne aayi hoon

jo sitam ham pe hogaa sahenge ae
tumse lekin naa kuchh bhi kahenge
tumse lekin naa kuchh bhi kahenge
tum apne munh se ye keh do
ab jag mein tumhaaraa raaj nahin
main tumse kehne aayi hoon

That leaves us with just one song from “Qaidi”(1957) to be covered in the blog. Here is that song.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007 whose 15th remembrance day falls on 28 January.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the eight songs from “Qaidi”(1957) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

This movie gets the distinction of getting YIPPEED in the blog in exactly ten years (3653 days)!

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post was suitable for 19th August. 19th was the remembrance day of Khayyam the music composer who began his journey in Bollywood in 1947, when he sang a song with Zohrabai Ambalewali. His first as a music director was in 1948 as ‘Sharmaji’ of the ‘Sharmaji-Varmaji’ composer Duo. The statistics page of the blog says that Khayyam saab has given music to 377 songs in 42 movies. That may seem too little when compared with music directors who were active during that period; but each song of his were ‘pure pleasure on the ears’. Songs like ‘shaam-e-gham ki kasam’ (1953) or ‘tum apna ranj-o-gham’ (1964) are still popular as also the hits from the ’70s and ’80s: ‘aa jaa re, aa jaa re o mere dilbar aa jaa’, ‘kabhi kabhi mere dil mein khayal aata hai’, ‘dikhayi diye yun ke bekhud kiya’, and many more that I grew up listening to, of course at that age only the songs used to play in my head, I never knew details about singer, composer, lyricist etc.

The song with this post is also one such song, one that was only heard and details of which I gathered at the time of writing this post. I had heard it in the ’80s at the time “Noorie” released. Possibly not as often as the other popular songs from “Noorie” viz. Aa jaa re and Chori chori koi aaye.

“Noorie” (1979) was a movie directed by Manmohan Krishna (the popular character actor of those times) under Yash Chopra’s production. It had a cast of lesser known actors (at that time) like Poonam Dhillon, Farooque Sheikh, Bharat Kapoor, Iftikhar, Madan Puri, Gita Siddharth, Padma Khanna etc. The movie was a simple love story with the lovers being separated due to the death of the girl and in the final scene the lovers are united when they are buried beside each other. In the interim Bharat Kapoor (who plays a negative character) upturns the love cart of the lovers by killing the girl’s father, sending the boy away on a made-up-errand, raping the girl etc., which has the girl committing suicide. The boy returns, learns the cause of his beloved’s death and in his bid to avenge it, is killed. Here I shall add that the bad-man or villain also doesn’t escape punishment as the girl’s pet dog eventually kills him.

The playback singers used in that movie were Pamela Chopra, Jagjit Kaur, Asha Bhonsle, Anwar, Lata Mangeshkar, Nitin Mukesh and Mahendra Kapoor and S. K. Mahan (the character actor who used to be mostly seen in Yash Chopra movies. He is the one in the orange jacket at the beginning of this song). Of the 6 songs three (one song has two-versions)were written by Jan Nisar Akhtar, 2 by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and one by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Today’s song is written by Jan Nisar Akhtar whose remembrance day also happened to be 19th August.

Jan Nisar Akhtar has penned some memorable songs in a career spanning about 30 years but he was essentially a writer of poems, ghazals and nazms. He was awarded the 1976 Sahitya Academy award for his work ‘Khaak-e-dil’ a collection of poetry. His legacy is being carried forward by his son Jaaved Akhtar and grandchildren Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar.

The song is in the voices of Pamela Chopra, Mahendra Kapoor, S K Mahan and Jagjit Kaur who died a few days back on 15th August. I am not attempting an tribute to the (recently) departed singer of such wonderful songs as ‘dekh lo aaj hum ko jee bhar ke’; ‘kaahe ko biyaahi bides’; ‘saada chidiyaan da champa ve’ etc. Jagjit Kaur’s end came a few days before her husband Khayyam saab’s anniversary. Must be a measure of the love between the musical couple.

Remembrance Day of N Datta on 30.12.2020
———————————————————
————————————–
Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (01)
————————————–
This is a tribute post for Datta Naik, also known as N Datta, on his 33 death anniversary. It looks as if, N Datta formed a successful team with Sahir Ludhianvi as most of his popular songs are with Sahir in the period 1957-1959. He has composed a sizeable 349 songs in 54 films, out of which 221 are already in the blog.

A few weeks aga I inadvertently ended up with a short list of Geeta Dutt’s song links, which included different genre of songs, duets, solos and female duets. They are mostly so sweet and pleasing songs. Sometimes melancholy, but still sweet.

So here is the first song in the series, combined with the remembrance day tribute post of N. Datta. It is a Mohammed Rafi- Geeta Dutt duet from the 1960 film “Rickshawala”. The lyricist here is Jan Nisar Akhtar. The song actually is a sales pitch song. The sale of the humble fruit called “Chikoo”. It is called “Sapota” too. Both singers along with chorus are enthusiastically promoting it, even offering it for free, in exchange of a heart. The celebrity names are also freely taken for encouraging people to buy the fruit. So it is a fruit vendors song, who say that :

‘chehre ka ye husn badhaaye,
Nargis khaaye,
Nimmi khaaye,
khaaye madhubala”

‘ Chikoo’ is supposed to be rich in iron, so may be, it is useful in increasing ‘chehre ka husn’. I had early experience of buying ‘chikoo’ in, believe it or not Mumbai local trains. The price was unbelievable, 5-6 chickoos for Rs. 2/- only. Those were the cheap 80’s.

Only two songs from this film are posted so far :

Song Date of posting
Neeli saadi sunahra jumper 14 February 2012
Jawaani mein to ik dil ki 18 December 2018

Title of the film is ‘Rickshawala’, but there is no riksha or tonga song here. There are these marathi words repeated in the song ‘aga saku, ghe chikoo’. It means ‘O saku, buy chikoo’. ‘Saku’ may be a slang or a nickname of sort, where girls are called ‘saku’ in a teasing way.

I could find only the audio link for the song, but it is filmed on Johnny Walker and Anita Guha. Another film with only Mohammed Rafi male singer, with Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt.


Song-Pandit ho ya lala ya Gandhi topi waala (Rickshawala) (1960) Singers-Geeta Dutt, Rafi, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-N Datta

“Mr John”(1959) was produced by Nigam and directed by Indar for N K Productions, Bombay. The movie had Shyama, Johny Walker, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Ifthikhar, Krishnakumari, Mumtaz, Tuntun, Mohan Choti, Kamal Mohan, Sampson, Uma Dutt, Ravi, Champal Lala, Rashid, Daraaz, Wahid, Genious, Tiwari, Ramlal, Anil, Singh, Jaani, Ghouse, Tarun Kumar, Ajay Kumar, Ajeet, B Fazl e Kareem, Mukhtaar, Pt Baijnath etc in it.

Here is the fifth song from “Mr John”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and Rafi. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by N Datta.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that this song is picturised on Shyama and Johny Walker. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.
