Today’s song is from an old film Baaghi-1939. Same title films were also made in 1953, 1964, 1990 and 2000. In addition the word Baaghi was used as a prefix in few more films, like Baaghi Aurat-2000 or Baaghi Sipahi-36 etc .

Today’s film was made by Vishnu Cinetone and it was directed by the banner’s owner Dhirubhai Desai, a veteran in Costume and other C grade films. The film had other names like ‘ Bandkhor (बंडखोर )’ and ‘Sarfarosh’. This double or treble name system was prevalent in film industry since the Silent films. For silent films such multiple names were justified and necessary, because silent films ran in different language regions. So, for the benefit of local audience, these films were advertised in different names. Somehow this system continued even after Talkie films started, though its utility had diminished when films had dialogues and were shown all over the country, but still, one finds that this trend continued. Nowadays, I find that almost every film has an indicative Tag line.

In the Hindi film industry,there are 4 types of people.

The first type is of those people,who join this industry,struggle very hard and succeed in fulfilling their dreams,for example Guru Dutt, Mehboob, Johnny Walker, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd.Rafi etc. who are well known to all by now.

The second type of people are those who join the industry,struggle very hard ,do not succeed and leave dejected.

The third type is those people who have a filmi connection or a strong luck,who join,struggle a bit and succeed, like for example,Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Dilip kumar, Rakesh and Rajesh Roshan, Anand Milind, Nanda, Nargis, Meena Kumari etc.

And….. the fourth type is those people who join the industry, struggle very hard and succeed partly, but end up doing something else,to keep them sustaining here.

The industry is full of people of the 4th type. People who come with dreams in their eyes, but end up doing something else. People who start as a Hero in 2-3 films,settle for side roles and finally character roles, like Dev Kumar, Sujit Kumar, Jeevan etc.

Not only this but we have examples where they started with something else and ended with a totally different thing and succeeded.For Example,Guru Dutt started as a Choreographer/dance Director (Lakharani-45) and ended up Actor/Director, Ashok kumar started as a Lab Technician in photography but became a great actor and Amiya Chakravarty who started as a Canteen Manager in Bombay Talkies,for which, later, he directed finest movies. Kanhaiyalal and Mirza Musharraf came here to become Lyricist, but ended as Comedians.

All such cases do not end happily. In most cases, the artiste has to make compromise with his fate. One such artiste was Music Director Jimmy, who came to films to make a career as a singer. He did not succeed as a singer, but having settled for a career of a Composer, here too he was not much successful. Today’s duet is sung by him.

Composer Jimmy is one of those little known composers who never got fame or name in spite of their Talents. His real name was JAMES SINGH. He was a Christian sikh from Ludhiana. He was educated in Delhi.He started his career in Hindi films as a singer in Chorus. He sang 7 songs in 6 films (Imandar-39, Baghi-39, Pyar-40, Anjaam-40, Jadoo Nagri-40, and Maaya Nagri-44). He could play many western instruments, especially all types of Guitars.When he failed as a singer, he became assistant to many composers. Finally, he got his chance to compose few songs for film ‘Muqaddar-50’, though with Khemchand Prakash and Bhola Shreshtha. He composed 2 duets of Asha and Kishore. The credit of composing the First ” Yodelling ” song of Kishore kumar goes to Jimmy. Kishore ‘yodelled ‘ first time in this film.

Jimmy then gave music to 14 more films like, Shrimatiji-52, Smuggler-59, Awara Shehzadi-56, Sher e Baghdad-57, Nek khatoon-59, Pathan-62, Miss chaalbaz-61, Tarzan and Gorilla-63, Duniya hai dilwalon ki-66, Pyar ki Baazi-67, Tarzan in fairy land-68, Aakhir-84, Khoon aur sazaa-86 and his last film, Sachhi Ibadat-1987. Inspite of giving sweet and melodious songs of a variety, Jimmy never came up to A class. He always remained a composer for C grade films. Anyway, as long as Kishore’s yodelling is heard,Jimmy’s name will be remembered. For singing,he used the name James Singh and as a Music Director he used Jimmy. (Like Chitalkar and C Ramchandra) .

The cast of film Baaghi-39 was Mehtab, Shamim, Amirbai karnataki (who sang as Amir jan), Anwari, Anil kumar (real name Sardar Gul), Ashraf Khan, Master Shiraz and many others. Actress Anwari, who acted in this film , was from a Tawayaf family of Lucknow. She started her acting career with film Heer Ranjha-32 opposite Rafiq Ghaznavi and then she acted in film Pooran Bhagat-1932, along with K L Saigal. She did the role of Rani Uchharan.

She joined East India Film co. and worked in films like Aurat ka pyar-33, Night Bird-34, Nagin-34 and Mumtaz Begum-34. She had also acted in another NT film Chandidas-34. She shifted her base to Bombay and worked in several films for next four decades. Her last film was Chaitali-1975. In all she did 140 films. She was known as ‘ Pride of Lucknow’ during her peak period. She was credited variously as Anwari Begum, Anwari, and Anwari bai.

Actress Anwari was the second wife of Rafiq Ghaznavi with whom she had a daughter, Zarina. Later, Zarina changed her name to Nasreen and worked in director A.R. Kardar’s movie, ‘Shah Jehan’ and Daud Chand’s movie, ‘Aik Roaz.’ Later Zarina married Liaqat Gul Agha, a rich Jeweller of Pakistan and they settled in London. She became Zarina Agha. Further, Zarina Agha’s daughter, Salma Agha, achieved great name and fame as a singing star. She expired somewhere in early 80s.

Anwari and Rafiq Ghaznavi were divorced (or separated) after Zarina/Nasreen’s birth, and Anwari then married a rich Hindu businessman named Jugal Kishore Mehra ( Maternal uncle-Mama- of Raj Kapoor). In order to marry Anwari, Jugal Kishore Mehra abandoned not only his family but also his religion; he became a Muslim and took the name Ahmed Salman. Since Anwari had a child, Jugal Kishore Mehra effectively became the father of the infant Zarina/Nasreen.

The most interesting name in the cast is that of Master Shiraz. He was one of the most popular and very famous Heros in the silent era. Like many others, when the Talkie era began, he too was relegated to the background and with great difficulty could get character roles in films. His first Talkie film was Mast Faqir-1934. He sang one song each in 2 films- Baghdad ka chor-34 and Chalta Purja-34. He continued doing roles in films.

During his good times, he had learnt the art of Massaging, as a Hobby and this became his last straw for survival. When film roles were not available, he used to roam about with his kit and do Massaging to earn a living. After doing about 26 films, till Naiya-47, he stopped getting credited in the cast. Now he worked as an extra.

He was last seen in film Guddi-1971- doing massage to Omprakash in one scene. In that film, Dharmendra tells Jaya Bhaduri (Guddi) that Master Shiraj was a star in silent film era. Director Hrishikesh Mukherjee ensured that Shiraj got his name in the film credits of Guddi-71.

Master Shiraj was just one of those unfortunate film artistes who spent their end-time in a very pathetic manner. Some other examples are- actor/singer Parshuram- died on road as a beggar, Singer Vatsala Kumthekar- died on road as a mad beggar,Wasti was seen begging near Liberty cinema and Rattanbai was seen begging near Haji Ali. There are many more such stories. The world of films is the most unpredictable and unless the artiste is wise to secure his future, there is no light at the end of the tunnel !

Today’s song is sung by Shamim and James Singh. The song is composed by Shanti Kumar Desai and is of average quality, but it has special importance as it is sung by James Singh, whose songs are not available much. With this song, film Baaghi -39 makes its Debut on the Blog.

Today’s song is from the film Jadu Nagari-1940.

In last 2-3 years, I find that a lot many collectors are uploading songs from films of the 30s and also rare songs. The HFM History students- like me- are highly indebted to them for their generosity.

Like in any other fields, here too some disturbing events take place. Some collectors upload incomplete songs, thinking that this will protect their monopoly. I feel this is very unfair. No one forces them to upload songs. If they do so on their own, why not complete songs ? Anyway, it is their thinking and choice. Fortunately, true connoisseurs, like Shalin Bhatt ji are highly dependable and his songs are not only complete and rare but he also adds some information to it. Many times the viewers’ comments on the song also gives important information pieces. May God increase his tribe !

Film Jadu nagari-40 was based on an imaginary story, like many such films. These films had writers, who flew the kites of their imagination, sometimes in a very comic way. For example, turning Humans into Animals or showing talking animals, birds and even Snakes. Of course since the film had Jadu in its title iteslf, all these things were within expectations only. Actually these things made the films very interesting and watchable. ALAS ! The era of such C grade films is gone for ever !

I selected a song from this film, because I found some unusual and rare points here, worth talking about.

Firstly, the film is directed by Baburao Apte ( variously spelt as Baburao, Bapurao or S R Apte), who was the elder brother of actress Shanta Apte. He had started his acting career from the silent era. He acted in 8 silent films. Starting with film Shyamsunder-32, he acted in his first Talkie film, as Radha’s husband- where Radha was his own younger sister, Shanta Apte. In all, he acted in 16 Talkie films, his last film being “Main abla nahin hoon”-49 directed by Shanta Apte herself. He had a very minor role in it-courtesy his sister. He also directed 8 Talkie films from Kala Pahad-33 to Jadu Nagari-40. yes, today’s film was his last film as a director.

And yes, he was the same person, who brought his own younger sister of 9 years to act in films. He would put a condition in the contract that no other actor will touch her while shooting. If she had a wife’s role, he would do the husband’s role. Fortunately for cine goers, as Shanta Apte grew up as a rebel, she defied this rule and Baburao started his acting and direction separately. He got married and lived separately.

Shanta Apte- though unmarried till end- had a daughter-Nayana Apte. However this news of her daughter was kept a secret. When Shanta Apte died on 28-2-1964, ten years later Nayana declared that she was Shanta Apte’s daughter. Film Historian Isak Mujawar, in one of his books, has said that Nayana was Shanta’s daughter from brother Baburao Apte only. Such matters have no credible proofs anytime. By the way, Nayana Apte became a popular actress on Marathi Stage and in Marathi Cinema. Obviously Baburao Apte was very creative indeed !

Secondly, in this film Rajkumari Calcuttewali (real name Pullo Bai) had acted and also sang 5 songs. Though HFGK is silent about which Rajkumari it was in this film, the noted Music Historian and collector Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji has confirmed this. Also the song’s uploader Shalin Bhatt ji also mentions Rajkumari Calcuttewali. Though she acted and sang only in films made at Calcutta, two films ‘Gorakh aaya’-38 and ‘Jadu Nagari’-40 indicate her participation.Later she married one Seth Motilal from Calcutta and left films.

Thirdly, Music Director in later times-Jimmy aka James Singh- sang a duet in this film with Rajkumari Calcuttewali. Composer Jimmy aka James Singh- is one of those little known composers who never got fame or name in spite of their Talents. His real name was JAMES SINGH. He was a Christian Punjabi from Ludhiana. He was educated in Delhi.He started his career in Hindi films as a singer in Chorus. He sang 7 songs in 6 films (Imandar-39, Baghi-39, Pyar-40, Anjaam-40, Jadoo Nagri-40, and Maaya Nagri-44).

He could play many western instruments, especially all types of Guitars.When he failed as a singer, he became assistant to many composers. Finally.he got his chance to compose few songs for film ‘Muqaddar-50’, though with Khemchand Prakash and Bhola Shreshtha. He composed 2 duets of Asha and Kishore. The credit of composing the First ” Yodelling ” song of Kishore kumar goes to Jimmy. Kishore ‘yodelled ‘ first time in this film.

Jimmy then gave music to 14 more films like, Shrimatiji-52, Smuggler-59, Awara Shehzadi-56, Sher e Baghdad-57, Nek khatoon-59, Pathan-62, Miss chaalbaz-61, Tarzan and Gorilla-63, Duniya hai dilwalon ki-66, Pyar ki Baazi-67, Tarzan in fairy land-68, Aakhir-84, Khoon aur sazaa-86 and his last film, Sachhi Ibadat-1987. Inspite of giving sweet and melodious songs of a variety,Jimmy never came up to A class. He always remained a composer for C grade films. Anyway, as long as Kishore’s yodelling is heard,Jimmy’s name will be remembered.

However, in this film Jimmy was not the MD. It was yet another little known MD- Shanti kumar Desai, a very talented but unlucky composer who rarely got support from any famous banner. His music was enchanting and tunes were superb, but Lady Luck did not favour him.

He was born in Amreli,Saurashtra, Gujarat state on 3-3-1908. His family was in service as Royal Musicians, so he was exposed to music from childhood.He was an expert Harmonium player. To start his career, he came to Bombay and worked in H.M.V. as a Broadcaster. Here he came into contact with many composers and learnt how they operated and made tunes etc. He was already giving music to Dramas, but wanted to join Film line as M.D. He got his first film Navbharat ( Jawanmard)-1934. In those days Gujarati producers and directors used to prefer Gujarati MDs. Thus out of his 36 films, 18 were done with Gujarati Directors like Sohrab modi, Nanubhai Vakil, V.M.Vyas(4 films), Kanjibhai Rathod, Dhirubhai Desai etc. He also gave music to Gujarati films.

He gave music along with Madholal Master,Rafiq Ghaznavi, Pannalal Ghosh, Shyambabu Pthak etc. Famous singers like Rafi, Manna Dey, Zohrabai, Amirbai etc sang in his films during their early careers. Even kishore kumar’s early film Sati Vijay-48 had music by Shanti kumar Desai. He gave music to films of early era actors like Prem Adib, Mehtab, Sitara Devi, Leela Chitnis, Jal Merchant, Ashraf Khan, Rajkumari, Mazhar khan, Shanta Hublikar, Jairaj, E Billimoria, Kumar, Sardar Akhtar, Chandramohan, Shobhana Samarth, Durga Khote, Shahu Modak and Sulochana.

From 1934 to 1948, he gave music to 35 films and in 1964 his one film was released. He composed about 300 songs. He never got films from top banners like Bombay Talkies,Prabhat, Sagar or Minerva, otherwise his career would have been different.

He died on 6-1-1986. Some of his better known films were Bholi bhikaran-36, Punarjanma-38, Anjaam-40, Suhaagan-42, Naukar-43, Ek din ka sultan-45 and Lav Kush-51.

The Hero of this stunt film was the Stunt King Yeshwant Dave…..ever heard his name ? Not a great chance, I know.

It was not uncommon during the days of early cinema for people to hang around studios and filming locations in the hopes of being discovered. One such intrepid soul was Yeshwant Dave (or Yashwant Dave), who was at Kohinoor Studios observing a picture being made by producer J.B.H. Wadia. The handsome and athletic Yeshwant cornered Wadia, insisting that he would make a fine hero for an action film.

Wadia agreed to test Yeshwant by having him jump from the roof of one set piece to another. He did so successfully, and J.B.H. decided to cast him in a film that he was to direct for Young United Players, the 1931 silent Thunderbolt (aka Diler Daaku) featuring Mumtaz as the heroine.

Yashwant was again directed by Wadia in Toofaan Mail (1932) and thereafter became a sought after action star appearing in the stunt films of other directors like Aspi, Dhirubhai Desai, Nari Ghadiali, Chunilal Parekh, and Harshadrai Mehta. Some of his films include Bharat Veer (1932), Jaadui Jung (1934), Bombshell (1935), Vasant Bengali (1937), Flying Ranee (1939), Magic City (Jaadoo Nagri) (1940), Torpedo (1941), Royal Mail (1946), and Kaun Pardesi (1947).

Growing out of the stunt hero persona, he turned to character parts and made infrequent onscreen appearances throughout the 1950s, including in Seikh Chilli and Makkhee Choos both released in 1956 and starring comedian Bhagwan. What became of Yeshwant Dave afterwards is anybody’s guess, as the once popular action star faded into obscurity and, sadly, is barely remembered today.

Today’s song is a duet sung by Rajkumari Calcuttewali and James Singh. There were 9 songs in the film. With this song, film Jadu Nagari-40 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 08
—————————————————

While I was writing the previous post of this series few days ago, I was maybe suffering from lack of motivation.  So I could not be very expressive and just tried to put together some random thoughts and to start the series again.

Today I am glad that somehow this series has begun again. Simply because I have spent this week in sharing with all those around me with some musical sense, a link I found on YouTube.  Sharing it because that is the only thing I could do short of shouting on rooftops that look what I have found.

Years ago I was a regular visitor http://www.mohdrafi.com.  I was just visiting and reading the various articles that were posted and sometimes making some comments.  Overtime that passivity was a bit tedious and the writings and articles there felt repetitive and somewhat amateurish.  It never inspired any inclination to be more active, though it is a very good site dedicated to the memory of Rafi Sb and full of information about him.

While being a Rafi fan myself, I have often wondered how can people be so over the top in praise and eulogies of some mortals, so as to call him God, Farishta and what not.  The fans of Rafi Sb are so so much – deewane and parwaane on him as if these words were coined for them only, if the readers know what I mean.

Whatsapp university tells me that a human mind can store or process 1 million billion bits of data in a lifetime.  In this same humble brain there are various tidbits of information stored by me too, some which has come to fore during this momentous week.  I have remembered that during the 70’s Rafi Sb used to go on a lot overseas tours to do stage shows.  And years ago I had/heard an audio cassette of one of these shows.  With the advent of YouTube the things and all type of rare and songs and videos became accessible.  Now I remember myself searching for the video clips of stage shows by Mohammed Rafi Sb.  And I found and saw small clips of these shows.  But I had not found any longish recording links of complete stage shows.  Over the years I stopped looking for those.  I can’t recall now when was the last time I really looked for this lost treasure.  I had may be subconsciously given up on ever finding any such thing. It was as if I had convinced myself that they don’t exist.

So It was while just browsing for more inspiring songs by Rafi Sb in the labyrinth of YouTube, I found this video recording of Rafi Sb’s live concert of 1979 at Montreal, Canada.  I was dumb founded that something like this has existed for the last 38 years without being uploaded anywhere and it has surfaced in July 2018.  It was a heaven sent gift for me and it has triggered all sort of memories of all that was there in the deep recess of my mind.  At first I really thought it just cannot be, a video recording of such significance being uploaded now, it was too good to be true.  It is of 1.15 hours.  Here is the link – Mohammed Rafi Live Concert Video – Montreal 1979

As I said above I just couldn’t believe that finally I am seeing something like this.  This is the first time something so comprehensive video is uploaded on the net.  It was a year before the end of the true Golden era of Hindi film music.  And how the maestro is performing, it is to be seen and heard to be believed.  And the singing gets better and better as song after song are getting rendered from his soul.  I have asked this question to many people I have shared the video with, that what do they think that he is singing from his throat, mouth or heart?  Some say that the throw of voice is phenomenal and someone said that this is just not possible to be so much more than the original soundtrack in live performance.

What can one say?  As some of the comments are surmising that “hamaari auqaat nahi hai ke Rafi sahaab ke baare mein kuch keh saken“.  What we can do is just listen to this incredible performance and thank the uploader of this best of the best generosity on his part.  This is a boon to Rafi fans like me 39 year after the event.  But one thing it creates is a hunger for more such recordings, which have started surfacing now.  Let us hope and pray the other such treasures are safe somewhere in the world and will surface in due course, in our lifetime.  I am truly humbled by the good fortune of being able to experience something like this.

Naushad Sb had this to say about Rafi Sb “aaj mausiqui ko tujh pe naaz hai“.  This has made me see that all this highest of high praises were showered on him by various peers and contemporaries were really heartfelt and never were they too much.  I rather think they felt speechless when contemplating what to say about Rafi Sb and took a short cut and called him God of music.

Someone has commented that Rafi Sb does not need the award of ‘Bharat Ratna’ rather the award needs Rafi Sb to mean something.  Not intending to be political, I can but agree with this.  More so with the history and the civilisation from which such a sur samraat has emerged.  Something else I have understood with this ethereal experience is that those who can deny the truth in the statement that “Rafi ko nahi suna to kya suna?” could do so because of their ignorance of the subject matter.

Today I am presenting a rare song by Rafi Sb from the film ‘Duniya Hai Dilwaalon Ki’ (1966).  Music is by Jimmy (aka James Singh) and the lyricist of this qawwali is Anjum Jaipuri.  As can be expected it is a delightful qawwali containing a repertoire of mumbaiyya terminology.  They could have used this one in ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ series too.

And there is the ‘whistle sound’ in the middle of singing.  Rafi Sb has done this in the live concert too, i.e. whistled in the middle of the Punjabi song and then continued to sing in the same breath.  Unbelievable, that the microphone is able to capture the bass and the echo in the words that are falling from the mouth like precious jewels in a free fall in a hall full of people watching.  Yes there is that ‘goonj‘ in the words as they are resonating from the mike, and the sound of the end of the earlier word still can be head even as he starts the next word.  This is the only explanation of the sound of the word already sung and the start of the next word at the same time.  May be this happened with others also, I don’t know.

The simplicity, humbleness of the person while acknowledging the applause.  The only concession to any showmanship on Rafi Sb’s part is the formal attire, which has to be more as a form of respect for the audience than anything else.  His God gifted ability is there for all to see.  I can empathise with the people who were part of the recording studio set up, witnessing the phenomenal singing day in and day out for all those years, for being in so much in awe of the personality so as to call him God.

Anyways , all we can do is listen and try not to faint with the awesomeness of it all.  And thank the Almighty God for blessing us with this gift just as he blessed Rafi Sb.

कोई कुछ भी कहे प्यारे
मगर ये बात पक्की है॰॰ए॰॰ए॰॰ए
यहाँ आता है वो जिस पर
कोई इल्ज़ाम होता है
हाँ॰॰आं
सबब कोई॰॰ई॰॰ई
ना कोई था
जो यूं खिच कर
चले आए

ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ वरना
कौन अपनी खुशी से आए यहाँ
दाने दाने पे
नाम होता है
वो ही दाने हमें ले आए यहाँ
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ वरना
कौन अपनी खुशी से आए यहाँ
दाने दाने पे
नाम होता है
वो ही दाने हमें ले आए यहाँ
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ

यार अपना इक इमामुद्दीन था
मनचला और बहोत शौकीन था
हाँ॰॰आं
साथ चौपाटी गए हम घूमने
अरे हुस्न्वालोन पर लगा वो झूमने
तो फिर
कभी लड़की को यूं बुलाता था
धीरे धीरे सीटी बजाता था
(सिटी का स्वर)
धीरे धीरे सीटी बजाता था
गंगा जमुना के गाने गाता था
राज की तरह मुसकुराता था
एक लड़की जो ज़रा॰॰॰
एक लड़की जो ज़रा जाड़ी थी
पहने हुए वो काली साड़ी थी
उसकी आँखों में दीप जलते थे
देखनेवाले आँखें मलते थे
रात सोई थी उसके बालों में
चाँद हँसता था गोरे गालों में
आई शामत उसे सलाम किया
उसने चप्पल से अपनी काम लिया
हाँ॰॰आं
छेड़खानी का मज़ा महंगा पड़ा
और हम को प्यारे
जेल में आना पड़ा
हो हो हो॰॰ओ
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ वरना
कौन अपनी खुशी से आए यहाँ
दाने दाने पे
नाम होता है
वो ही दाने हमें ले आए यहाँ
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ

धोखा दिया नसीब ने
बन कर बिगड़ गया
हाय हाय हाय
अरे कड़के की जेब में
जो मेरा हाथ पड़ गया
तो फिर
खोल के देखा पाकिट खाली था
पाकिट वाला भी खुद सवाली था
बंद काग़ज़ में दिल की तहरीरें
हुस्न्वालोन की चंद तस्वीरें
अपनी किस्मत के रंग ऐसे थे
इक सिगरेट थी चार पैसे थे
चार पैसों में गुज़र कब होती
हुस्नवालों की नज़र कब होती
इन्हें दौलत से प्यार होता है
इनकी बला से कोई रोता है
आया गुस्सा तो पाकिट फेंक दिया
पाकिट वाले ने मुझे देख लिया॰॰आ
हाँ॰॰आं
भागना चाहा मगर मैं गिर पड़ा
जैसे उठा मुंह पे एक थप्पड़ पड़ा
हाँ॰॰आं
अपनी पेशे से हुई नफरत मुझे
जेल में करनी पड़ी कसरत मुझे
हो हो
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ वरना
कौन अपनी खुशी से आए यहाँ
दाने दाने पे
नाम होता है
वो ही दाने हमें ले आए यहाँ
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ

आ आs आss आss
आ आss आs
हाँ॰॰आं
बाप ज़िंदा था
बोहत आराम था
घर में अपना रामचंदर नाम था
और अब
हमें अब रामू दादा कहते हैं
चाल में गंगू की हम रहते हैं
तेज़ी मंडी का धंधा होता था
अपनी मस्ती में बंदा सोता था
यूं ही फोकट में काम चलता था
काले घोड़े तक नाम चलता था
दिल में चाहत थी बड़ी सेहरे की
आने वाली थी घड़ी सेहरे की॰॰ई
हाँ॰॰आं
माँ कसम अपना दिल काला नहीं
दोस्तों की बात को टाला नहीं
हाँ॰॰आं
लाये इस्मग्लिंग का सोना चाल में
रामचंदर को फसाया जाल में

हाँ॰॰आं
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ वरना
कौन अपनी खुशी से आए यहाँ
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ वरना
कौन अपनी खुशी से आए यहाँ
दाने दाने पे
नाम होता है
वो ही दाने हमें ले आए यहाँ
ये तो किस्मत है
मेरी जाँ

Missing Films of 1960s – 73
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this song, we bring the 14th Tarzan film to our blog.  Searching in the Geet Kosh, we find 15 Tarzan films. Adding the one film from 1987, which is represented on our blog, it makes 16 Tarzan films that we are aware of. Of these, 13 films are already represented on our blog with at least one song each. With this 14th incarnation, Tarzan now arrives in Fairlyland. The alternate title of this film in Hindi is listed as ‘टारज़न परिस्तान में’.

‘Tarzan In Fairyland’ is a film from 1968, produced under the banner of Sadhna Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Sushil Gupta. The cast of actors listed is kind of typical for such a film in 1960s – Azad, Indira, Shaam Kumar, Amar, Ram Mohan, Sheikh, Khurshid, Kumud Tripathi, Rani, Paulson, Pal Sharma, Nazeer Kashmiri, Fazal Khan, Satish, Tintin, Rehana, and Jyoti Kumar etc. Sounds familiar. . .

The film has five songs listed. Two songwriters are listed for these songs – Aziz Kashmiri and Shewan Rizvi. For music director, two names are listed – Jimmy (aka James Singh) and Premnath. This particular song is attributed to Shewan Rizvi and Jimmy. For the remaining 4 songs, the names of the songwriter and the music director are not specifically assigned.

The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Kamal Barot, supported by a chorus of voices. This song almost sounds like a qawwaali, but I cannot be sure. Only the audio of this song is available. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends who may have seen this film, to please add some more information about this film and its songs.

After this film, two more Tarzan films are pending. One is ‘Tarzan And Gorilla’ (1963) and the second one is ‘Tarzan 303’ (1970). Let’s see how soon we will get to these. Meanwhile, enjoy the debut of this 14th Tarzan film on to our blog.

[Ed Note: ‘turbat’ (तुरबत) = grave, burial ground.]

phool gulshan mein na tha
dil ki murjhaai kali
aarzoo dil ki jali
marte marte na chhooti
haaye laila ki gali
ishq mein ho ke fanaa
aisa deewaana bana
jo bhi turbat pe gaya

गर प्यार हमारा सच्चा है
हर ताक़त को ललकारेगा

आ आ
जो कदम आगे बढ़ा
बढ़ के पीछे ना हटा॰॰आ॰॰आ
जो कदम आगे बढ़ा

इस मोहब्बत के लिए
तख्त और ताज दिये

दिल की मुरझाई कली
आरज़ू दिल की जली
मरते मरते ना छूटी
हाए लैला की गली
इश्क़ में हो के फना
ऐसा दीवाना बना
जो भी तुरबत पे गया

Unbelievable – that this song is still waiting to be posted.

This gem of a song, a forgotten favorite from the radio listening days. Such a lovely and soulful song, a wondrous melody that enhances the poignancy of the emotions contained within the words. And the words – what an ocean of feelings has been captured and bundled, just within the three phrases of the first line itself,

dil liya. . .     gham diya. . .     kya kiya. . .

Report on Gangout in Mumbai on 29-4-2017, Part 1
—————————————————–

It so happened that Bakshish Singh ji had informed me that he would be in Mumbai, for a week, in February. Later on he informed that author Javed Hamid ji will also accompany him and so he suggested that we meet on 25th February 2017. Accordingly, all arrangements were made and plans were drawn by me and Sadanand ji. However, around 20th February or so, Bakshish ji informed me that due to a death in the family, he had cancelled his visit. So, the meeting was postponed to April end when, as per him, he would come to Mumbai with Sudhir ji and Javed ji.

Missing gems from 1950s-Song 1
———————————–

In the month of January, I had visited Hyderabad-my home town after a gap of about 6 years and I was quite excited about meeting close relatives and school/college friends. I had been in touch with them from Mumbai. They contacted me when I reached Hyderabad and settled down. We decided to meet for Lunch at an appointed day at one of our favourite clubs-Fateh Maidan Club. It was going to be a reunion for 6 friends, including me. Everyone was excited about this meeting. On the appointed day I reached the club at about 12.30 pm. All my fiends-5 of them- were waiting for me. After embracing each other, they all sprang a surprise on me and there appeared my 6th friend, who was not in the pre decided list. He too was from our group, but had settled down in US. He had come to Hyderabad just the previous day and he was invited to meet me . We met after about 20 years and were extremely happy to revive nostalgic memories.
