Missing Films of 1960s – 32
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

At the beginning of this month, June 1st, I had a personal reminder to myself – passing away anniversary of Khwaja Ahmed Abbas. I was wanting to do a brief remembrance post. Other “things” intervened and the day came and went. Then, it so happened that on the 15th June, there was a set of reminders and requests for the birth centenary celebrations of Sajjaad Husain. Not many “things” intervened that day, and I was able to locate a rare recording of a song from film ‘Dharam’ (1945), as yet unposted, and was able to post the remembrance article in good time. You may remember the title line of that song “Chali Pawan Purvaai, Chali Pawan”.

Allow me to come to the connection between these seemingly unconnected events and songs. On YouTube, I have a subscriber friend, who is very stridently focused on the Hindi film music from the decade of 1960s. After following my uploads on YouTube for some time, she now frequently sends ‘farmaish’ messages to post rare songs from 1960s. Most of the time it is just this line – “please post unavailable songs of films from 1960s”. Whenever I post an unavailable song from 1960s, she is quite profuse in her appreciation and thanks. Whenever I post a song that might be a repeat on account of quality or completeness of the song, there is a terse comment from her – “Already available. Pls post unheard, unavailable songs”. Whenever I post any song which is not from the decade of 1960s, she invariably comments something to the effect that –  “Ok, so this is a good song”, and then adds the more important reminder – “please post songs from 1960s”. I am gratified at the persistence of her requests of her choice of songs. 🙂

So on 15th, when I posted the Sajjaad Husain song “Chali Pawan Purvaai, Chali Pawan”, as expected, her response was almost immediate. “Good song”, was all she said for the upload, and added, “pl upload rare & unavailable songs from sixties.” This was followed almost immediately by another comment – “Pl try to locate song chali hawa purvai from Hamara Ghar (1964).”

Now, she generally does not put in a request for a specific song, this is probably the first time that she has. Earlier, the reminders are for songs from sixties, and occasionally a movie name – whether I have any songs from that particular film. On seeing her comment, I just checked some, and was able to locate this song in my collection. The film name ‘Hamaara Ghar’ seemed familiar, so I checked our blog, and found that two songs of this film are already posted here. Then did a double take, and realized – the two songs posted are from a film of the same name from 1950. In fact there are no songs posted of this 1964 film. Checking on YouTube, what I find is that except for one song (“Saare Jahaan Se Achha. . .”), no other song of this film is available online.

And so I said to myself, here is an opportunity for a debut song for the day. 🙂

And immediately, as I started locating information about this song and film, I realized that this film is produced and directed by Khwaja Ahmed Abbas. The connection came full circle. The film is produced under Abbas Sb’s own banner of Naya Sansaar, Bombay. As I tried to locate more information, I came across this interesting anecdote.

“Shehar Aur Sapna”, the 1963 production by Abbas Sb, which focused on migrant population and housing problem in the city of Bomaby, had won the National Award for the Best Film of the year. Apparently, at the function where the award was given, the then prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, requested Abbas Sb for a film for children. It seems that Abbas Sb took on that request almost immediately, because the film ‘Hamaara Ghar’ was released in the very next year i.e. 1964. This year was also when Nehru ji passed away (on 27th May). I have not been able to locate the information about the release date of this film, and whether Nehru ji was able to see this film, that was produced by Abbas Sb at his request.

The star cast of this film includes Sonal Mehta, Yasmeen, Rekha Rao, Tanya Siraaj, Pasha Azeem, Deepak Prasad, Sunil Kaushik, Noel Moses, Jai Prakash Narula, Maruti, Narayan Devanpalli, Levi Aaron, Ghanshyam Rohera, Nana Palsikar, Surekha, Dilip Raj, Anwar Abbas, Meena Abbas, and Yunus Parvez. As one reads this list, one can make out that the first many names are likely child artists, who are the lead performers in this film. Incidentally, the name Sunil Kaushik is of the second son of JP Kaushik, the music director for this film. Also, if I am not mistaken, the name Pasha Azeem is of Abbas Sb’s son.

This social drama is a film on national integration, at the level of children. I am able to locate a poster of this film online. The poster, all in tones of light blue, depicts a row of thirteen children, boys and girls, standing in ankle deep waves on a beach, and the name of the film is written in the sky background, in all languages of India. The caption at the bottom says – “A Film For Children Of All Ages”. Abbas Sb in his element of social responsibility, as always.

The film has six songs, five of them are penned by Ali Sardar Jafri. The sixth is the song “Saare Jahaan Se Achha. . .” written by the legendary Iqbal. Music is by Jag Phool Kaushik, the music director who started his film career with Abbas Sb for his 1963 film ‘Shehar Aur Sapna’. On the blog “Beete Huye Din” by Shishir Krishna Sharma, I am able to locate a detailed write up on this music director. An interesting trivia to note is that Anil Biswas was the resident music director for all films of Abbas Sb, before 1963. In fact, at the first instance, when JP Kaushik went to meet Abbas Sb with a reference, seeking work as a music director, he was told that Anil Biswas had already started to work on this particular film. Later, I assume that as Anil Da moved to New Delhi, likely during the production time of this film, the work for music direction was given to JP Kaushik. As I read in this blog, two songs for this film were already recorded by Anil Da, but later both of them were not used in the film. It would be interesting to track down the whereabouts of these songs, which I would like to designate as rarities, on account of circumstances.

The Geet Kosh lists only the name Vijaya Majumdar as the singer in this song accompanied by chorus. However, as we listen to this song, we are able to make out at least three more unidentified voices – a male voice, a female voice and a child’s voice, who get to render two or three lines each in between. Listening to the song, it seems like a children’s group song. The words are lot of fun, but also carry deeper meanings. And the music and rendering sequence of different voices and chorus, make it a delightful song to hear. The music is so minimal. Seems that this song is picturized on the beach location which is depicted in the poster of the film. I refer to the lines

daud ke neeli neeli lehren
paaon hamaare choomen

Once again, a wonderful memory from the radio listening days, which I have been prompted to dig out and showcase, based on the request of my friend on the YouTube. I am very sure you are going to like this song very much.

o ho rang roop dikhlaayen
yoon aankhen jhapkaayen
jaise hamen bulaayen

o ho chale hawa purvaai
(aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa)

daud ke neeli neeli lehren

paaon hamaale choomen
pyaar kare pedon se chhaaya
sar par baadal jhoomen
jhoomen jhoomen
sar par baadal jhoomen
chaahe jahaan hum ghoomen

titli rani ke pankhon par
cham cham chamke sona

roshn bahut hai bhara hai un ke
mann ka kona kona
kabhi niraash na hona
haan ji
kabhi niraash na hona
duniya khel khilona
khilona khilona
chale hawa purvaai

chale hawa purvaai
(aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa)
o ho chale hawa purvaai
(aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa)

॰ ॰ ॰ चले हवा पुरवाई

चले हवा पुरवाई
उषा जगमग जगमग
आई आई
चले हवा पुरवाई
चले हवा पुरवाई
उषा जगमग जगमग
आई आई
चले हवा पुरवाई

डाली डाली चिड़ियाँ चहकें
भौंरे साज़ बजाएँ
नन्ही नन्ही कलियाँ महकें
रंग रूप दिखलाएं
ओ हो रंग रूप दिखलाएं
यूं आँखें झपकाएं
जैसे हमें बुलाएँ
बुलाएँ बुलाएँ
चले हवा पुरवाई

चले हवा पुरवाई
(आ आ आ आ आ)
ओ हो चले हवा पुरवाई
(आ आ आ आ आ)

दौड़ के नीली नीली लहरें
पाँव हमारे चूमें
पाँव हमाले चूमें
प्यार करे पेड़ों से छाया
सर पर बादल झूमें
झूमें झूमें
सर पर बादल झूमें
चाहे जहां हम घूमें
हा हा हा हा हा
धूम मचाएँ झूमें
झूमें झूमें
लल्ल लल्ल ला ला ला
चले हवा पुरवाई

चले हवा पुरवाई
(आ आ आ आ आ)
ओ हो चले हवा पुरवाई
(आ आ आ आ आ)

तितली रानी के पंखों पर
चम चम चमके सोना
सोना
चम चम चमके सोना
रोश्न बहुत है भरा है उनके
मन का कोना कोना
कभी निराश ना होना
हाँ जी
कभी निराश ना होना
दुनिया खेल खिलौना
खिलौना खिलौना
चले हवा पुरवाई

चले हवा पुरवाई
(आ आ आ आ आ)
ओ हो चले हवा पुरवाई
(आ आ आ आ आ)
