Missing Films of 1960s – 58
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1966 and 1967 appears to be very fertile years, as far as discovering obscure films and songs is concerned. I start searching for the films from these years, and I continue finding films and songs that seem to have been lost in time. A good number of them have already appeared online in one form or another. But there is still a good set that seem to be as yet unavailable online.

Today’s film – ‘Sheba And Hercules’ from 1967, is one of them. After some earlier comments from some readers on the blog and also some followers on YouTube, which corrected my statement about the song being posted for the first time, I try to be more cautious, and apply more effort to search the song before posting. So for this song today, I searched using many different options, but I am not able to trace any song of this film online. But I do not claim that the song is making a debut online, because I have been held in error of such statements before. So I will say that as far as my searches could show, I did not find this film and this song online as yet.

The name of the film itself indicates an obscure and a lost film. As dear Arun ji has also noted in one of his articles earlier, we can depend on the producers of Hindi films to create links across histories and across geographies; even to the extent of combining factual history and fictional characters. This endeavor to connect and to integrate disparate persona, events and aeons, is really ‘commendable’ – these producers and these films are working towards not just national integration, but also international integration. These producers deserve a big applause for their effort. 🙂

Case in point is this film. I am going by the title – since I have no clue as to the content and the storyline of the film. Hercules is a Roman God whose stories are part of the Roman Mythology. Incidentally, in Greek mythology also, a similar Hero/God appears, with a slightly altered name – Heracles. There are many similarities in the stories of these two, across these two cultures.

Queen Sheba is very much a historical persona, whose details are found in Biblical history, and from there connects are found in Jewish and Islamic history also. There is archaeological evidence that also supports this historical records. Sheba was the Queen of the kingdom of Saba – area in the southern Arabic peninsula that is current day Yemen. Her historical record is contemporaneous with King Solomon, who was the king of Israel in circa 970-931 BC. There is a detailed record of Queen Sheba’s visit to Israel, accompanied by a grand retinue, and of bringing many gifts of spices, dry fruits and other items, loaded on camels. The Jewish history records that the spices brought by Queen Sheba were of the type never seen and used before in Israel. There is a record of their conversations, in which Sheba asks many questions from Solomon, who is considered to be the wisest man who ever lived on this earth. After being satisfied with the answers she receives, she returns to her lands. Historians have recorded this visit as one of the earliest examples of a trade and cultural exchange delegation going from one nation to another.

But I digress. The point I am trying to arrive at is the these two mythological / historical personae – Hercules and Sheba – could never have possibly been contemporaneous in person. However, still, the producers of Hindi films have found a happy meeting ground for these two, in the film titled ‘Sheba And Hercules’. I would request other readers and friends to please add some information about the storyline of this film.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of Meena Films, Bombay and is directed by BS Chaudhry. The star cast includes Randhawa, Vijaya Chaudhary, Indira, Heeralal, Kamal Mehra, Tuntun, Rajan Kapoor, Trilok Singh, and Saudagar Singh amongst others. Geet Kosh tells us that there are six songs in this film. All songs have been written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and the music is by a gentleman named Chandan. Now this is a name that I have not encountered before. As I tried to look through the Geet Kosh, I am not able to locate any other reference to this name as a music director. Quite likely, this person, as many others who have given music in one or two films, would probably have been an assistant music director, and then got a chance to try his hand as an independent artist. But after one outing, did not get any more work in the industry.

The singing voice in this song is of Krishna Kalle. This is a song of ‘expression of love’, in which the lady is expressing her magnanimity that she is a benefactor, and that as a favor unto him, she has fallen in love with the gentleman to whom this song is being addressed. Now that is quite a thought. 🙂

So with this song, the film ‘Sheba And Hercules’ makes a debut on our blog. And so does the music director Chandan. I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film, and the music director.

Song – Jaao Ji Tum Pe Hum Merbaan Ho Gaye  (Sheba And Hercules) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Chandan

“Johar in Bombay” (1967) was directed by Shantilal Soni for Thakkar Films, Bombay. The movie had I S Johar, Sonia Sahni, K N Singh, Rajendranath, Madan Puri, Polson, Jeevankala etc in it.

This movie was one of several “Johar in…” series on movies, a bit like the “Carry on…” series of movies in Hollywood.
In this particular movie, I S Johar ties up with Rajendranath, both playing good for nothing slackers who somehow manage to save the coutry (if not the world) from evil scientists out to destroy the country (if not the world).

The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the blog. Here is the sixth and final song from “Johar in Bombay” (1967). This song is a rare song in the sense that it is not available as a standalone song on YT as of now. The song is a roadside tamasha song where I s Johar and Rajendranath and seen performing a streetside dance alongwith their love interests- Sonia Sahni and Jeewankala (?). The dance performance have elements of punjabi folk dance followed by Maharashtrian lavani folk dance.

The song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, S Balbir, Usha Timothy and Krishna Kalle. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

Today (9 january 2018) happens to be the birth anniversary of Mahendra Kapoor (9 january 1934-27 september 2008). Quite fortuitously, this happens to the 300th song of Mahendra Kapoor in the blog. So this is a perfect tribute to the singer in the blog.

It also happens to be the 15th death anniversary of Qamar Jalalabadi (9 january 2003). So this song serves as a tribute to Qamar Jalalabadi as well.

With this song, “Johar in Bombay” (1967) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Naach sasure naach nakhra ab na chalega (Johar in Bombay)(1967) Singers-Mahendra Kapoor, Balbir, Usha Timothy, Krishna Kalle, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Usha Khanna

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

kankariya maar ke jagaaya. . .
kal tu mere sapne mein aaya. . .

I believe this is another so verily a commonplace experience, waking up in the darkness of the night. The structured minds and the regimented ‘scientific’ thought process, has a very different view of what this sleeplessness is. On the other hand, a romantic, poetic mind will have an expression so totally different, and so wonderfully human. And if that mind is familiar with, and is a connoisseur of Hindi film music, that mind will have simply no difficulty in understanding. For there is so much that the song writers have written, and so much that the singers have rendered. . . about this waking up in the middle of a deep sleep.

Welcome all to our next century milestone, piling nine hundred on top of eleven thousand. And we are now just 100 short of the next thousandth milestone. And we hope to get there shortly now. This milestone has been quite slow to arrive. We have taken full forty days from the previous century, which occurred on 24th Jan.

Genius of Jaidev – 40
——————————–
Searching on internet YouTube, I came across this Rafi’s 1969 ‘Sapna’ song for my ‘Genius of Jaidev’ series. According to HFGK this Rafi’s song is also sung by Krishna Kalle with some minor variations in lyrics for the same film. What can be better, as suggested by seniors of ASAD, than presenting two songs in one posting today, to remember Jaidevji, who took permanent ‘nirvaan’ on this day, the 6th January, 28 years ago!

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 18
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Bring up and test this, works every time.  Looking for a good melodious song that will strum the strings of the heart – just pick an obscure film from 1950s or 60s.  If the lyricist and music director and the singer(s) are from the proverbial ‘lesser known’ category, all the better.  Just run through the song list of such a film.  I promise you will find a memory tickler hidden in there, which will make you exclaim – “achhaa, ye gaana is film ka hai”  (“Aha, so this song comes from this film”).  I have tried this many times; always been a success.

Take this film, and this song.  I have wonderful humming memories of this song from the radio listening days.  For all this time, I was unaware of the details.  Searching for songs by Chitragupt, I ran into this a few days ago, and had that ‘Aa Haa’ reaction.  Wow, so this is it.
