Missing Films of 1960s – 107
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film that is being introduced today is ‘Lav Kush’ from 1967. It was a time when mythological and religious films were still a draw – a draw enough for producers to continue producing this genre of films. It was a crop of artists, producers and financiers who held sway in the decades from the early years of Indian cinema, till maybe 1980s. Beyond that, once that crop withered away – passing away, retiring, or just plain fatigue, this genre of films has seen only a downward slide.

The film is produced by Basant Pictures. Regulars will recall that Basant Pictures is an off shoot of the Wadia Movietone, and both these production banners have witnessed great success in the 1940s and 1950s – Wadia with their stunt films (mostly starring Nadia), and Basant with their religious and social offerings.

The film is directed by SN Tripathi; ah yes, the same person who is also the music director. The cast of actors reads like Jaishri Gadkar, Aseem Kumar, Sheel Kumar, Bela Bose, Bablu, SN Tripathi, Chitra, Dalpat, BM Vyas, Hari Shukla, Bhagwan Sinha, RC Pandey, and Lalita Desai. The film has seven songs listed, and all the seven are penned by songwriter Saraswati Kumar Deepak.1

The song is a dance song in the royal court. The time of narrative is when Lord Ram has safely returned to Ayodhya, He has been crowned as the king, and the Ram Rajya is installed. Things seem to be settling down and moving smoothly. At this juncture, it becomes known that Sita is expecting and should become a mother soon.

This song is played at this time, when a court full of ladies marking this celebration with their good wishes blessings. The lead dancer in this song is Bela Bose. Interesting to note that Bela Bose is known for the ‘other’ types of dances. However, this dance – cast in a combination of semi classical plus folk steps – is no less impressive.

Maybe 5, or 6 films more to go for the 1960s list. Hopefully soon. 🙂

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Usually one chooses songs full of happiness and celebration for these types of occasions to celebrate, but as usual, I choose this haunting song, to celebrate. 🙂

The song is from the 1983 film ‘Sansani – The Sensation’. I have watched this movie one late night for the sake of this haunting song by Asha Bhosle. The movie was just a masala / murder mystery, where at the end the noble characters like Dr. Shriram Lagoo and Jayashree Gadkar turn out to be characters with grey shades. If you are a die-hard fan of Hindi movies of  70`s and early 80`s like me, you may enjoy this  pot-boiler, but watch the movie at your own risk. 🙂

But listen to this song, you may like it audio-wise.

This is an obscure mystery movie produced by Kavita Seth, who is also billed in the credits as “KAVITA – Introducing” as an actress. She is one of the principal lady characters in the movie. She appears wearing a white saree, roaming in the graveyards, and crying for her beloved Shailendra Singh (the playback singer, who got billing as “Friendly Appearance”). Shailendra Singh appears only at the climax, and also in a photograph in front of which the actress cries and sings this haunting song. But he did not get a playback singing chance, which is his original forte.

There is some confusion about the year of release of this movie, LP image of this movie shows the year 1979, censor certificate clearly shows the date 23-6-1983. According to HFGK-6, 1983 is the release of this movie.

The movie was “Dedicated to Late Director Irshad Afzal”, (I guess before the release of the movie the director must have passed away). The movie was produced under the banner of Panorama Pictures. The producer of the movie is Kavita Seth, who also makes her acting debut with this movie. The director’s name is mentioned differently in different sites as Irshad / Irshad Afzal / A Irshad.

The star cast of the movie includes Vinod mehra, Bindiya Goswami, Prem Chopra, Dr Shriram Lagoo, Shailendra Singh (Special Appearance), Kavita (Introducing), Jagdeep, Jayashree T, Jayashree Gadkar, Keshto Mukherjee, Jagdish Raj, Coca Cola, TP Jain, Ali Masood, Nilima, Meena T, Raj Kishore, Amal Sen, M Baig, Amarnath, Dutta Bhatt, Viraj, Gopal, Dina Pathak, Gulshan Grover, Viju Khote etc.

Songs of this film are written by Irshad (who was also the director). Music is composed by Hemant Bhosle. It has been mentioned in the credit sequences of the movie that the assistants to music director are Kersi Lord and Uttam Singh. These two genius composers cum arrangers also contributed to the musical score of this movie to a great extent. Kersi Lord has also done a lot of work with RD Burman.

The musical compositions of the movie are sung by playback singers like Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar, Bhupender, Varsha Bhosle, and Hemant Bhosle. This movies has got following sound tracks

  1. Asha Bhosle : Phir Teri Yaad
  2. Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar, Bhupinder & Varsha Bhosle : Patthar Ka Hai Sanam
  3. Asha Bhosle, Hemant Bhosle & Chorus : Sansanikhez Koi Baat
  4. Asha Bhosle, Varsha Bhosle : Saqiya Tu Koi
  5. Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar : Ab Kahaan Jayenge Hum (Happy)
  6. Amit Kumar : Ab Kahaan Jayenge Hum (Sad)
  7. Hemant Bhosle : Theme music

Records of the movie were issued by The Gramophone Company of India Ltd. (aka His Master`s Voice). The movie was shot at outdoor locations of Madras, Bangalore, and Tamilnadu.

On screen this song has been divided into 3 parts. The first stanza features Dina Pathak, Shailendra Singh (i.e. appears in a photograph) and Kavita Seth aka Kavita . The 2nd stanza features Kavita Seth, Dr.Sriram Lagoo, and Vinod Mehra. And the 3rd stanza features Kavita Seth, Vinod Mehra and Jayashree Gadkar.

About the Music Director: Hemant Bhosle is the late son of Asha Bhosle. He passed away on September 28th of 2015. I like his musical compositions of the songs of ‘Taxi Taxie’ (1977). Given below is an incomplete filmography for him. If at all any additions or deletions are there in this regard, please let me know.

  • Taxi-Taxie (Polydor-1977)
  • Jadu Tona (Polydor-1977)
  • Anpadh (Polydor-1978)
  • Damaad (Polydor-1978)
  • Sansani (HMV-1980/Irshad)
  • Sweety (Music India-1980)
  • Nazrana Pyar Ka (Polydor-1980)
  • Shradhanjali (HMV-1981/Anjan)
  • Barrister (HMV-1982/Yogesh)
  • Teri Meri Kahani (TV Movie 1982/Anjaan,B.R.Chopra)
  • Doosra Kinara (1982)
  • Beta (1982/HMV/Anjaan)
  • Bandhan Kachchey Dhaagon Ka (HMV-1983)
  • Raja Jogi (1983)
  • Bachchon Ka Khel (1983/Gulshan Bawra)
  • Dharti Akash (TV Movie 1983)
  • Dharam Shatru (T-series,Super-1985/1988)
  • Bhaago Bhoot Aaya (1985)
  • Aakhiri Sanghursh (1987/1997)

Hemant Bhosle also provided music for some Marathi songs.

About the Lyricist Irshad:  I searched for lyricist Irshad`s other works, but got confused with Irshad who has connection with the Kishore Kumar camp, and has written songs for films such as ‘Door Ka Rahi’ (1971 – which has the famous song “Beqaraar Dil, Tu Gaaye Jaa”), ‘Badhti Ka Naam Dhadi’ (1974) ‘Shabaash Daddy’ (1978) and ‘Chalti Ka Naam Zindagi’ (1982). Irshad also written songs for other movies like ‘Naag Pooja’ (1971), ‘Pattharon Ka Shaher’ (1972) – both for Usha Khanna. Also for ‘Alibaba’ (1976) – Dara Singh starrer with Hansraj Behl as the music director.

I got further confused when I watched the movie credit sequences which displays the photo with garland and agarbatti and lines like “Dedicated to our beloved director – Irshad Afzal”, and further in the credits – “Lyrics, written and directed by IRSHAD”.

I doubt whether all the above Irshads are one and the same. I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please help clarify this possible ‘same name confusion’.

One of the comments related to the song in some site is as follows: “Phir Teri Yaad” is a completely mental slice of Indian psych/funk”. I failed to understand this comment, I request someone to please elaborate about this comment.

I will conclude my endless banter here 🙂

Congratulations and best wishes to our blog on its MEGA CELEBRATION. I love everything and everyone related to our blog. Visiting and reading the blog posts gives me immense joy.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 22
————————————————

This day, ten years ago, the songs that we were listening to are listed below,

 

Dukh Ke Ab Din Beetat Naahin Devdas 1935
Antam Fantam Chhod De Babu Hum Sab Chor Hain 1956
Hai Kali Kali Ke Lab Par Lala Rukh 1958
Jaa Re Beimaan Tujhe Jaan Liyaa Private Secretary 1962
Dil Ki Girah Khol Do Raat Aur Din 1967
Apni Aadat Hai Sabko Salaam Karnaa Pyaar Deewaana 1972

 

Six songs were posted, six films represented. Over the past 10 years, four of these films have completed their run of songs – ‘Devdas’ (1935), ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956), ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958) and ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967).

For the remaining two films, the score card says –

‘Private Secretary’ (1962) – 4 songs posted out of total 7 listed, and
‘Pyaar Deewaana’ (1972) – 2 songs posted out of total 8 listed.

So in preparation for the Ten Year Challenge post for today, as I started to scan the remaining songs of these two films, I had to stop right at the first song that I checked, for I knew it has to be this one today. The song is a stage dance song from the film ‘Private Secretary’. The listing in the Geet Kosh is not fully informative, because the song title listed is actually the lead in verse to the song. The burden of the song comes later, and it was not apparent when I read the song title. But when I played this song – my goodness, I am amazed that a song of this caliber has been lying unnoticed for all these years. That is the reason for the urgency in my mind to post this.

This song was frequently heard on the air waves during the radio listening days, and so it is a very familiar and a favorite song from that time. After the leading verse, as soon as Lata ji starts to croon “O O O Saanwre. . .”, I just sat up straight with surprise – my God, this song, this lovely melody. Not yet posted. Hiding where all these years. And I knew it has to get posted right away.

The film ‘Private Secretary’ is produced under the banner of Radiant Movies, Bombay and is directed by Chander. The cast of actors is listed as Ashok Kumar, Jaishri Gadkar, NA Ansari, Mohan Choti, Poornima, Raja Gosavi, Neelam, Jerry, TN Sinha, Manohar Geer, Raj Kumar, Ravi Khanna, Kashi, CN Kapoor, Athawale, and Umakant. The seven songs listed are all from the pen of Prem Dhawan, and the music is composed by Dilip Dholakia. The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar.

The song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar on screen, as a stage performance. In the beginning of the song, we can see Ashok Kumar and Mohan Choti as part of the audience. A wonderful song and an equally wonderful performance – the song merits to be on the list of best dance songs.

Listen to this charming melody. And tell me. Did you have the same reaction as I did?

Song – O Saanwre, Aa Ja Pyaar Liyei  (Private Secretary) (1962) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Dilip Dholakia

Missing Films of 1960s – 85
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The next in this series is a religious film from 1970. Yes, the times were when this genre of films had a serious following, and the producers in the industry would be creating films in this category. Today’s film, ‘Shri Krishna Leela’ is from the house of Wadia’s, under their banner of Basant Pictures. As we review the data about film production under this banner, we find that this has been one of the very active production houses over the decades. [Note: I am examining the data in the Geet Kosh from 1931 to 1980 only.]

Over the years, Wadia film production company went about its business under the names as – Wadia Brothers, Wadia Brothers Productions, Wadia Films and Wadia Movietone. Collectively, these banners have been active since 1933 till the year 1971, having produced 50+ films in various genres – social, stunt, religious, mythical, costume dramas, historical etc. In 1943, the company launched another banner, named Basant Pictures. As we scan their list of films, once again we find slight variations in the banner names as – Basant Pictures, Basant Pictures (Wadia Brothers) and Basant Wadia Brothers Production. Collectively, this banner has a listing of about 60 films between 1943 and 1980. The films in this list also cover just the same set of film genres.

A brief about the House of Wadia. The ancestors of this Parsi family originally settled in Surat after migrating from Persia. The original business of Wadia family was shipbuilding. The logo of Wadia Movietone prominently carries an image of a ship – it is a representation of their origins – the legacy business that started off their fortunes. The Wadia Group’s shipbuilding business was set up in 1736 by Lowjee Nuserwanjee Wadia. Later during that century, the group shifted its base from Surat to Bombay. They built trading ships, and later in 1800s they build maritime vessels for the Royal Navy (Great Britain).

Wadia Movietone was founded in 1933 by the brothers – JBH Wadia and Homi Wadia. JBH Wadia (born 1901) was a very well educated young man, who came into the film industry in the closing years of silent cinema. He produced about a dozen silent films, with moderate success. His productions were mostly adaptations of successful Hollywood productions of that era.

The other co-founders were Manchersha Billimoria, and Burjore and Nadirshaw Tata. Their first film – ‘Laal e Yaman’ (1933) was a major commercial success. In 1935, the company produced ‘Hunterwali’ with Nadia in the title role, along with Boman Shroff and John Cawas in prominent roles. This film became a surprise hit, bringing in a huge commercial windfall for the company. In the process, it set a trend which was duplicated by Wadias themselves and also copied by many other production houses. In 1936 came ‘Miss Frontier Mail’, followed by ‘Lutaru Lalna’ in 1938, ‘Punjab Mail’ in 1939, ‘Diamond Queen’ in 1940, and ‘Bambaiwali’ in 1941. However, by this time, the repeated use of the stunt formula lost its luster, and the company started facing losses. In 1936, the Tata brothers had already moved out from the partnership. In 1942, the Wadia Movietone studio was put up for sale. V Shantaram, who was moving out of Prabhat at the same time, purchased this studio and set up his famous production house – Rajkamal Kalamandir, at this premises.

In 1942 itself, the younger brother, Homi Wadia, set up Basant Pictures as a new production house. He started producing films under this banner using studio facilities at other premises. In 1947, he eventually set up his own studio once again. Basant Studio was functional till 1981. In 1990, the studio was inherited by Riyad Vinci Wadia, the grandson of JBH Wadia. He revived film production once again under this banner. However, he too passed away in 2003. The studio now houses the Wadia Movietone and Basant Pictures archives and memorabilia collection.

The film ‘Shri Krishna Leela’ is directed by Homi Wadia. The star cast includes Master Sachin, Heena Kumari, Jaishri Gadkar, Sapru, Manhar Desai, Kumar Dighe, Deepak, Tabassum, Ratnamala, Padmarani, Uma Dutt, Shekhar, Master Bobby, Master Ratan, Tuntun, Babu Raje, Habeeb, Dalpat, H Prakash, and Prince Arjun. The songs of this film are penned by Bharat Vyas and the music is from the mind of SN Tripathi.

Today’s song is a lullaby, in the voice of Asha Bhosle. On screen, the song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar, in the role of Maa Yashoda, as she is crooning to put the infant Krishna to sleep. Close to the end of this clip, we see a little more grown up child Krishna, role played by Master Sachin.

A wonderfully soothing melody. . . listen, and relax.

Song – Palkon Ka Palna Nainon Ki Dori  (Shri Krishna Leela) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – SN Tripathi

Lyrics

palkon ka palna
nayanon ki dori
palkon ka palna
nayanon ki dori
maiyya jhulaaye gaaye
meethi meethi lori
sapnon mein aaye tere
parion ki chhori
maiyya jhulaaye gaaye
meethi meethi lori
so ja mere laal
mere nnnhe se gopal

dekhun jo mukhda
mit jaaye dukhda
dekhun jo mukhda
mit jaaye dukhda
mere liye tu hai
chanda ka tukda
mere liye tu hai
chanda ka tukda
mamta bhari hai
mere mann ki katori
palkon ka palna
nayanon ki dori
maiyya jhulaaye gaaye
meethi meethi lori
so ja mere laal
mere nnnhe se gopal

soya hai madhuban
jamuna hai soi
saari nagariya hai
nindiya mein khoi
saari nagariya hai
nindiya mein khoi
tujhko chandaniya sulaaye chori chori
palkon ka palna
nayanon ki dori
maiyya jhulaaye gaaye
meethi meethi lori
so ja mere laal
mere nnnhe se gopal

mmmmm hmmmmm
hmmmm hmm hmm hmmm
mmmmm hmmmmm
hmmmm hmm hmm hmmm
mmmmm hmmmmm
hmmmm hmm hmm hmmm
mmmmm hmmmmm
hmmmm hmm hmm hmmm

पलकों का पलना
नयनों की डोरी
पलकों का पलना
नयनों की डोरी
मैय्या झुलाए गाये मीठी मीठी लोरी
अपनों में आए तेरे पारियों की छोरी
मैय्या झुलाए गाये मीठी मीठी लोरी
सो जा मेरे लाल
मेरे नन्हें से गोपाल

देखूँ जो मुखड़ा
मिट जाये दुखड़ा
देखूँ जो मुखड़ा
मिट जाये दुखड़ा
मेरे लिए तू है चाँद का टुकड़ा
मेरे लिए तू है चाँद का टुकड़ा
ममता भरी है मेरे मन की कटोरी
पलकों का पलना
नयनों की डोरी
मैय्या झुलाए गाये मीठी मीठी लोरी
सो जा मेरे लाल
मेरे नन्हें से गोपाल

सोया है मधुबन
जमुना है सोई
सारी नगरिया है नींदिया में खोई
सारी नगरिया है नींदिया में खोई
तुझको चंदनीया सुलाये चोरी चोरी
पलकों का पलना
नयनों की डोरी
मैय्या झुलाए गाये मीठी मीठी लोरी
सो जा मेरे लाल
मेरे नन्हें से गोपाल

म्ममममम हम्मममम
हम्ममम ह्म्म ह्म्म ह्म्ममम
म्ममममम हम्मममम
हम्ममम ह्म्म ह्म्म ह्म्ममम
म्ममममम हम्मममम
हम्ममम ह्म्म ह्म्म ह्म्ममम
म्ममममम हम्मममम
हम्ममम ह्म्म ह्म्म ह्म्ममम

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 23

‘Aankhen’ was released in 1950.  Most people remember it for being the debut film of music director Madan Mohan.  Amongst all the wonderful songs that caught the attention of the listeners, there is this lovely melody in the voice of Meena Kapoor, that really steals away your heart – “Mori Atariya Pe Kaaga Bole, Mora Jiya Doley, Koi Aa Rahaa Hai”.  For me, it is this one song that makes this film and its music memorable.  This is one of the two songs that Bharat Vyas wrote for this film.

Remembering Bharat Vyas on the anniversary of his passing away (5th July).

The experiences of listening to songs sung by different singers are different. When one listens to a song sung by Mukesh, one expects a song that one would begin to hum as soon as one listens to it. One also expects the fabled Midas touch of Mukesh in full flow which ensured that most songs sung by Mukesh became popular.
