Blog Day :

4450 Post No. : 15910

Recently,(12th of July’2020 to be precise) the blog saw the 5000th song from the decade 1951-1960 covered on the blog.

This ‘melodious decade’ has around ten thousand songs (as per HFGK) and if we look from that point of view we are just on the ‘half-way mark’ (or little above now as the songs are getting added frequently to this decade, thanks to the collaboration of our team members and also because of projects like Blog Ten Year Challenge.

All songs of this decade may not be available. Only time will tell us what will be the final tally for the songs of 1951-1960.

I noticed that there are a few movies of this decade which are represented in the blog by just one song. I will start from the movie where it began for me during the very first phase of the current ‘pandemic’ or the ‘first lock-down’ period.

It so happened that during the ‘first lock down’ when everything was becoming abnormal gradually and we were getting acquainted with the ‘new routine’, one evening we all family members were preparing for a ‘card game’ before finally retiring for the day. And there was some discussion that ‘kaise din aa gaye hain’ or ‘how the future days are going to be’ and it just knocked the ‘right’ cord in my brain … ‘din raat badalte hain, haalaat badalte hain’, and what more one wants if we have that soothing voice in such situations to calm our mind and give relaxation and the much needed motivation too.

(But today’s discussion is not about Hemant Kumar ji).
So, I played the song on my mobile (that has become new order of the day now since songs are available on YT and easy to play, as the cassette-recorder has taken a safe place in the shelves 🙂 ).

When I checked on the blog, I was surprised that only one song from this movie ‘Naya Sansaar-1959’ was posted on the blog. That piqued my interest and I searched for the other songs of this movie. I marked one song, another philosophical song from this movie for my presentation. I had then planned to present this song but could not make it some how as I had then started my job here and working at our place was resumed after first thirty days of the lock-down. Later I planned to present it on the birth anniversary of the lyricist of this song – Rajinder Krishan. But then it got delayed more and maybe it was waiting for the ‘right time’ for me as I experienced ‘how days things were changing for me after coming back from Kenya 🙂 and like the today’s song after ‘din raat badalte hain’ it was ‘ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa’. Very soon I lost the ‘shortest tenure job’ of my life. May be God wanted me to rest and spend ‘quality time with my family (which I missed due to my stay in Kenya) :).

After that we had a ‘relocation of the rented accommodation’ in the same city.

So, a little bit changing of ‘surroundings’ again, and though some ‘minor health issues’ bothering (our Doctor is aware 🙂 ) it’s almost two months now at the new place. And as they say ‘this shall also pass’, yes!!
But one thing is constant for me and continues … ‘blog, music, songs’ …

Thanks to God and our well-wishers all of us are safe and healthy so far …

Today on the ‘thirty-third’ ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.06.1919-23.09.1987) of lyricist Rajinder Krishan, as a tribute to him, we are going to listen to a song penned by him from the same movie ‘Naya Sansaar-1959’.

‘Naya Sansaar-1959’ was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for ‘Shri Krishna Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Darshan. It had Jayshree, Pradeep Kumar, Kumari Nanda, Dhumal, Tun Tun, Sundar, Shammi, Majnu, Sheila Vaaz, Sai Subbulakshmi, Kamala Lakshman and others.

This movie had six songs, and all were written by Rajinder Krishan. Music for this movie was composed by Chitragupta.

Lata Mangeshkar, Hemant Kumar, and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

As mentioned above lyrics are Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Chitragupta.


Song-Ik ik pal mein badle zamaana (Naya Zamaana)(1959) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from film Daku ki Ladki-54. I remember, there was a film in 1933 with the same title, featuring Sulochana, Dinshaw Bilimorea, Ghulam Mohd. Hadi etc. In that film, Ghulam Mohd. had done the role of the Daku, Sulochana was Daku’s Ladki and Dinshaw was the Police Officer.Ghulam Mohd. was known as ” The Prince of Imperial Film Company”, in those days.

Today’s film was made by Harish Productions. Naturally, the director and the Producer was Tara Harish only. Music was by Hemant Kumar. The cast of the film was Geeta Bali, Sheikh Mukhtar, Arjun, Shivraj, Rajan Kapoor, Mukri, Sankatha Prasad, Cuckoo etc etc.

The word “Daku” regularly appeared in the film titles right from the time Talkie films started. There were a total 32 films starting with the word Daku. When the film Daku ki Ladki came in 1933, as if to counter it, a film called Daku ka Ladka came in 1935. Thank God Daku’s family did not expand further ! Interestingly, there were 16 films based on female Dakus and only 7 films on Male Dakus. I wonder, what is the Hindi word for female Daku. A Dakin ? or a Dakuin ? or is it enough just to say He Daku and She Daku ? While female Dakus were honoured by calling them Daku Rani in 5 films and Daku Maharani in 1 film, the poor He Dakus had prosaic titles like Daku Bhupat or Daku Mansoor etc.etc.

When I took up discussing the 50’s film songs, I found that a lot of melodious and good songs to be yet to be discussed. Today’s song is one such song. To listen to Lata and Hemant Kumar is nothing short of a Bliss. Out of 2 such duets from this film one had remained to be discussed. In one of her interviews, Lata had said that she had always enjoyed singing duets with Hemant Kumar. She also said ” I used to feel as if some Sadhu was singing when I heard him singing a song”.

In the Costume drama Daku ki Ladki-54, Ravi Shankar Sharma was Hemant’s assistant in composing music.In few Hemant Kumar films, Ravi has sung songs, including this film. Later on when Ravi himself became a famous and successful composer, he made Hemant Kumar sing in his films. HK was a very respected person in the industry. When he came to Bombay his Hindi was not so good. Like all Bangla people, he had inherent difficulty in pronunciation of certain Hindi words. This was because, in Bangla language, there are no such sounds as plain ” A ” (अ ). So, Arun becomes Orun and Lata becomes Lota. With great practice and hard work, he improved his Hindi. Initially, even Geeta Roy had this problem.

In the cast of the film, you will see a name Shivraj. Not much is known about this good actor. Sometimes I feel some actors have such features that they are fixed for certain roles only and they are misfits in another role. For example, can you ever imagine Rashid Khan or Kanhaiyalal in a role of a sophisticated Millionnnaire ? Or Aruna Irani or Padma Khanna in a Mythological Devi’s role ? They may be good actors, but their physical features and style of acting restricts them to certain roles only. This is true even in case of big stars. Thus, Ashok Kumar became a laughing stock as Abhimanyu or warrier Humayun in full war gear.

The name SHIVRAJ in the cast always created curiosity in my mind. I had seen this actor in several films. I was unable to get any information on him anywhere. His role as the meek husband of Kaushalya (Manorama) in the film Seeta aur Geeta-72 is unforgettable. When I started work on this post, I tried again. This time I found an article – actually an Obituary – on him in The Hindu, dated 4-6-2017. Of course it described in it only about his different roles. From some other source, I got his date of Birth and Death and a little other information.

Shivraj was born on 11-6-1920 in Madhya Pradesh. His full name was Shivraj Pandey. After doing his graduation, he came to Bombay in search of a good job, but joined the film industry. To start with he worked in Minerva as an assistant in administration, He did some film roles too without getting credited. He left Minerva and got a role in the film Sarai ke bahar-47. This was a film made by National studios. His next films were Ziddi, Majboor, Batohi, and Asha all in 1948. Then there was no looking back. Shivraj acted in 212 films. He directed 1 film, Jaani Dushman-57. He retired from work in 2000, but his last released film was Yaar meri zindgi-2008. Shivraj died on 4-6-2017.

There is also a name Arjun in the cast. Now this is a ‘ Same Name Confusion ‘ artiste. Arjun was the Hero in film Malhar-51, opposite actress Shammi (Nargis Rabadi). His name is confused with Music director C.Arjun and many people wrongly presume that C.Arjun acted in the film Malhar. This Arjun is different. His name was Arjun Bakshi Gill. His first film was Naujawan-51, then came Malhar-51.Later he acted in Daku ki Ladki-54 etc. He wrote screenplays and went on doing small roles in films. He migrated to Canada and opened a Music shop. A RMIM member met him there, and recognised Arjun as Malhar Hero. Arjun died in 2001. His daughter Jyoti Bakshi was also an actress, who died in pitiable condition in 2003.

Finally, let us take a look at dancer Cuckoo.

It was 1944. The talkies were already around for 15 years. Devika Rani and Shobana Samarth had already established their glowing presence but it was still a time when nice girls didn’t even become leading ladies, let alone do roles where they had to wriggle their hips — however tastefully — and bare flesh, which at the time meant shoulders and maybe a bit of leg. At such a time, a pretty, fresh-faced Anglo-Indian girl with eyes that danced as enchantingly as her feet appeared in two films — “Pehli Nazar”- 1945 (in which Mukesh made his debut with “Dil Jalta hai toh jalne de”) and “Mujrim -1944.” The girl’s name in the film’s credits was listed simply as “Cuckoo.” Cuckoo was perhaps the first of the most well known dancing queens of Indian Cinema. She was born on 4-2-1928. Her predecessors were many, including a dancer called Azurie, who it is said Cuckoo modeled herself on. But in terms of the sheer body of work and its impact, Cuckoo would have to be the first among Hindi cinema’s dancing queens. It was with her that “cabaret” became an almost indispensable part of films made between the 1950s and 1970s.

Her debut in 1944 was an instant hit and in the space of just the next five years, she had appeared in an incredible 49 films, including Mehboob Khan’s “Anokhi Ada” (1948), H. S. Rawail’s “Patanga” (1949) and Devendra Goel’s “Aankhen” (1950). The only major filmmaker of the time who did not feature Cuckoo in his films was V. Shantaram. In a lot of her films, her role was just a song but its impact was so electrifying that distributors considered it almost as indispensable as the heroine. Like the Helen-Asha combination later on, in many of these songs, Cuckoo’s screen `voice’ was Shamshad Begum. Together, they were responsible for some unforgettable hits.

Mehboob Khan’s films proved to be the turning points in Cuckoo’s career. Her dance numbers in hisAnokhi Ada established her as the leading dancer of the time; and Andaz, a romantic melodrama featuring Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, and Nargis, gave the dancer an opportunity to showcase her acting skills.During her peak period,she was getting Rs.6000/- per dance appearance.

Cuckoo remained the top dancer of Hindi films till she was displaced by Helen and such dancer-actresses as Vyjayanthimala.Cuckoo gave dances in about 76 films. Ironically, it was Cuckoo who had initiated a 13-year-old Helen into films as a chorus dancer.Cuckoo continued to dance until the beginning of the 1960s, the last few years as part of the chorus dancing.It has been recently confirmed that Cuckoo’s real name was Cuckoo Moray.Cuckoo died a slow lingering death, due to Cancer on 30-9-1981 penniless and unattended. No one from the Film industry attended her cremation. (Thanks for some information from Cineplot and from the book”Tujhe mere geet bulate hain” by Sanjeev Tanwar).

Today’s song is a delightful duet of Lata and Hemant Kumar. Let us now enjoy it….


Song-Nazron se chhup gaya hai taqdeer ka saweraa (Daaku Ki Ladki)(1954) Singer-Lata, Hemant Kumar , Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

nazron se ae
chhup gaya hai ae ae
taqdeer kaa aa savera

nazron se chhup gaya hai
taqdeer kaa savera
girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa
ham rah gaye tadap kar
munh zindagi ne phera
girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa
nazron se chhup gaya hai
taqdeer kaa savera

duniya mein ham ye kaisi taqdeer le ke aaye
tukde dil-o-jigar ke
ashkon mein muskuraaye
hansti hai mujhpe kismat
rota hai pyaar meraa

girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa
nazron se chhup gaya hai
taqdeer kaa savera

aaja ki dil liye hai maayoosiyaan nazar mein
ek shamma jal rahi hai
teri yaad ki jigar mein
baaki hai har taraf ab chhaaya hua andhera
girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa
nazron se chhup gaya hai
taqdeer kaa savera
girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa

Blog Day :

4445 Post No. : 15893

Today’s song is from the film Chingari-1955. There were 4 films made with the same title – in 1940, 1955, 1988 and 2006. There was a dubbed film with a title ” Chingari Jawani” in 2003. I am still trying to understand its meaning !

During the second world war period many commodities like Petrol, Kerosene,foods as well as Raw film for making films went into shortage. Most essential items were controlled by the British government. The supply of raw film especially affected the film industry. Depending on the past history of making films by the film makers,” Quota “s were fixed at Government rates. Also, the govt. started a scheme of ” war effort promotion films”. Those films which promoted British efforts for the war in some way or the other, used to get extra Raw film supply at control rates. Many producers took advantage of this scheme and films like ” Panna”-44 and ” Badi Maa”-45 etc were made as ” War effort Promotion films” and got more Raw films.

When there is a shortage of anything, its Black Marketing is rampant. In India too, black market of Raw film, Petrol, sugar, even Rice and wheat prospered making the black marketeers prosperous. Some of the Black money flowed into film production as Finance. The result was, the films lost their purpose and quality as new financiers provided production money and interfered in selection of actors, MDs etc. During the period 1940 to almost early 50’s, these financers with black money made films at their will. Not all financers interfered. Actually most of them wanted to double their money investments. Some rich financers tried their hand at directing the films, without much experience. It was in this period that the Distributors started deciding film stories, singers, actors,directors etc, as they provided advance money for film production.

Why I am writing about all this is, during my years of writing on old films, I have come across strange names as film producers and directors. They appeared once and then disappeared for ever.Obviously they were the ‘ Curious Cats’ who wished to be a part of the films which they financed. Today’s film ‘ Chingari-55’ also is one of this category. This film was produced and directed by one S.Srivastava – a name I never came across earlier or after this film ! This film was planned somewhere in 1952-53, because all its songs were recorded in Jan-Feb 1953. That time this film was titled ” Paraya Ghar”. However, the film was delayed by a couple of years and with a new title ” Chingari” it was censored on 22-3-1955. It was released on 8-4-1955 at the Central Cinema and the film ran for just 3 weeks there.

The music of this film was by ” Manohar”. This name has caused ‘ Same name Confusion’. Manoharlal Khanna(father of Usha Khanna,MD) was also a Music director – though for only one film-Pamposh-54 and another was Manohar Sonik or Master Sonik (one of the Sonik-Omi composer duo). For many years these names got mixed up and no one knew who was who. The composer MANOHAR ARORA was a Punjabi music director who came from Sialkot to try his luck in Bombay. His first film was ‘Raees’-1948. Then came Josh-50, Rangeele Musafir-50,Bhoole Bhatke-52, Jingo-52, Usha kiran-52. His best remembered film was Chingari-55. Then came passing show-56, Mister Q-58, Dr. Z-59, Choron ki Baarat-60 and last film was Do dushman-67.

His name is mostly written as ” Manohar” only. This created a misunderstanding that he was Manoharlal Sonik,which is NOT correct.

The cast of the film was Nalini Jayawant, Shekhar, Pran, Leela Mishra, Sunalini Devi etc etc. Though I have seen many films of Nalini Jayawant, I remember her role only in “Hum sab chor hain”-56, which was loosely based on a similar story of film ‘ Ek thi Ladki’-49, with some changes like twin sisters lost in childhood (in Kumbh Mela ?). Nalini Jayawant’s life story is a lesson for those who make immature decisions-only to regret later. Fortunately, she came out of her blunder of marrying Virendra Desai ( a much married man of 32 years) at her age of just 17 years, albeit with some scratches and loss of 5 years of young life.

Nalini Jaywant (18 February 1926 – 20 December 2010) was an Indian film actress who appeared in Hindi films in the 1940s and 1950s.
Nalini Jaywant was born in Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1926. She was first cousin of actress Shobhna Samarth, the mother of actresses Nutan and Tanuja. Since 1983, she lived mostly a reclusive life.

She was married to director Virendra Desai in the year 1943. They divorced in 1948. Later, she married her second husband, actor Prabhu Dayal,in 1960 with whom she acted in several movies. Prabhudayal died in 2001.

The marriage with Virendra Desai ( who was 15 years elder to her) and the next 5 years were quite traumatic for Nalini. This marriage only gave suffocation and wastage of 5 years of her teen age and the opportunities of working in films. More than her, Virendra Desai suffered due to this marriage. His mother Nandgauri, a tough lady, announced a family boycott on him and never again she spoke to him. Even when she was on death bed and Virendra had gone to meet her, she refused to talk to him. His wife and 3 children also treated him in aloof manner, like a stranger. His career was destroyed and he never came out of this situation.

In her teens, she appeared in Mehboob Khan’s Bahen (1941), a film about a brother’s obsessive love for his sister. Nalini finally broke through with Anokha Pyar (1948). The film was a love triangle with Nalini, Dilip Kumar and Nargis, with Nalini sacrificing her love for the hero, Dilip Kumar. It is to her credit that it was she who got the best reviews in the film, many critics calling her the only saving grace in the otherwise disappointing film.

1950 was Nalini’s big, big year as she became a top star with two of her films opposite Ashok Kumar, Samadhi and Sangram. Samadhi was a patriotic drama addressing Subash Chandra Bose and the Indian National army. Nalini and Kuldip Kaur played sisters who were spies for the British. The film, though called politically obsolete by leading film magazine of the day, Filmindia, was a huge success at the box office, its song Gore Gore O Banke Chhore being perhaps Nalini’s most popular song ever. On the other side of the spectrum, Sangram was a gritty crime drama wherein she played the heroine doing her best to reform the anti-hero. Nalini more than left her mark on both the films and went on to form a hit pair with Ashok Kumar, the two of them doing several films together thereafter like Kafila (1952), Naubahar (1952), Saloni (1952), Mr X and Sheroo (1957). It is said the two of them were romantically involved for a period as well.

Nalini remained an important leading lady through to the mid 1950s. Filmmakers like KA Abbas (Rahi-53), Ramesh Saigal (Shikast-53 – arguably her career’s best performance opposite Dilip Kumar, Railway Platform and Zia Sarhady (Awaaz) extended Nalini Jaywant’s association with realistic and socialistic films while filmmakers like Mahesh Kaul (Naujavan (1951)) and AR Kardar (Jaadu) developed her alternate musical persona, later personified by the frothy Filmistan musicals like Nastik, her biggest hit opposite Ajit, and Munimji, a carefree romantic film with Dev Anand as her leading man.

Perhaps Nalini’s last big, successful film was the Raj Khosla directed Kala Pani (1958). She gave one of the best performances of her career as the nautch girl Kishori who is the key witness in framing the hero’s father for a murder he did not commit. Playing a shaded character, she easily stole a march over goody-two-shoes heroine Madhubala and deservedly went on to win the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress for the film. She is absolutely unforgettable in the film be it in the come-hither mujra Nazar Laage Raja Tore Bangle pe or as she looks tearfully at Dev Anand from across the room in that all time great SD Burman composition, Hum Bekhudi Mein.

Nalini remained an important leading actress through the mid-1950s, appearing in such films as Rahi (1953), Shikast (1953), Railway Platform (1955)), Nastik (1954), Munimji (1955), and Hum Sab Chor Hain (1956). The 1958 film Kala Pani, directed by Raj Khosla, was Nalini’s last successful movie. Bombay Race Course (1965) was the last film she made before retirement. After 18 years, she returned as a character actress in Nastik-83 which marked her last film appearance.

Nalini acted in 64 films. She also sang 41 songs in 10 films. Her last song was in the film Chingari-55. She worked in 10 films with actor Ajit and in 11 films with Ashok kumar.

Nalini Jaywant died lonely on 20 December 2010, aged 84, at her bungalow of 60 years at Union Park, Chembur, Mumbai, India. The death was not noticed by anyone until an ambulance carried her body after 3 days of her passing away. The neighbours reported that she had secluded herself from society and had not been meeting people after her husband’s death. Her relatives were also not in touch with her for long.
(based on information from wikipedia, Upperstall, and book “Sagar Movietone” by Biren Kothari ji with thanks.)

While the film Chingari had the last song sung by Nalini Jayawant, this was also the last film of actress Sunalini Devi, who after doing 56 films, retired from films and got married. Incidentally, she was the sister of Sarojini Devi Naidu and actor Harindranath Chatopadhyaya.
The songs of Chingari-55 were very good. Today’s song is also a good one. It is also one of the few songs with ‘Anokhe Bol’, sung by Lata and an unknown male voice. Enjoy…..

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 76
———————————————————————————–

This date 10 years ago (11 september 2010) was rather unremarkable, in contrast to the same day in 1893, or 2011, when rather more important events had taken place. On 11 september 1893, Swami Vivekanand delivered an iconic and eloquent speech at the Chicago Convention of Parliament of Religions. Introducing Hinduism to the world, Swami Vivekanand spoke about intolerance, religion and the need to end all forms of fanaticism. on 11 september 2001, One of the biggest terrorist attacks took place at New York.

In cricketing news, Lala Amarnath was born this day in 1911. Sri Lanka earned their first test match victory on this day in 1985 (no prizes for guessing that it was against India).

On this day in 1967, Indian troop gave a bloody nose to Chinese aggressors, when Chinese troops got a taste of their own medicine and nearly 300 plus Chinese troops was killed at Nathu La (Sikkim- China bordeer) when Brigadier Sagat Singh took matter in his own hands and retaliated in a manner that left Chinese army shellshocked for nearly half a century.

11 september 2010 was a rather more sedate day when things happened in a routine way, not only around the world but even in the blog. Six songs from six different movies were covered on that day. Here are the details :-

Blog Song number Song Movir-year Remarks

“Paayal”(1957), one of these BTYC eligible movies was produced By Joseph Thomas and directed by Joseph Taliath Jr.for Madras Talkies.

As many as six songs of “Ghoonghat”(1960) have been covered so far. Here are the details:-

Here is a song from “Ghoonghat”(1960). This song is sung by Lata. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised on Bina Rai who is seen singing this bhajan in front of an idol of Lord Krishn. Though I consider my Hindi knowledge to be quite decent, I am stumped by this word “pat” in the lyrics. I request our nowledgeable readers to tel us the meaning of this word in the lyrics. Is this word in some way a synonym of “laaj” ?

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra and the blog ten year challenge details were sent by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day :

4430 Post No. : 15859 Movie Count :

4364

Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, one halfof the music director Laxmikant-Pyarelal was born on 03/09/1940. So that makes this 80th Birthday of the one of the most proficient, successful and talented musicians of the golden era of hindi film music. It is a well-known fact that both Laxmikant and Pyarelaljistarted their career as players of music instruments in the song recordings. If I am not mistaken, Pyarelalji, was a violinist.

‘Most proficient’ in the film industry’s history is the correct tag for Laxmikant-Pyarelal as they are the composers with the highest no. of songs composed which stands at 2901, in the blog’s stats page.

Laxmikant Pyarelal started as music directors in 1963, they hit the jackpot with Dost (1964). What followed is history, with awards, accolades and they never looked back. They are on record as loyalists of Rafi Sahab till his lifetime, who also sang maximum no of songs for them.

The achievements and success are too many, for me to start listing them. But their association with Anand Bakshi is the longest one, and must be the biggest such combo. I would guess the total songs composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal may have around 2000 written by Anand Bakshi.

On this birthday occasion , I am presenting the song from the film Krodhi (1981), by this very same team/combo of Lakshmikant-Pyarelal with AnandBakshi. The singers are Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar. The was a multi-starrer film by Subhash Ghai. The starcast was Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Maushmi Chatterjee, Zeenat Aman, Shashi Kapoor etc and of course the love birds in the song, Sachin and Ranjeeta. The four songs of the film, which I remember are all nice one’s. But the movie is making a debut here on the blog with this song.

I have seen the movie, so can give a little outline of the story. Dharmendra is a gangster or smuggler, Zeenat Aman works for him and has a lot of regard and respect for him, as he has helped her a lot with the responsibilities. Zeenat Aman meets Shashi Kapoor (Police Inpector ?) at her sister’s wedding. Zeenat Aman and Shashi Kapoor get married, but Shashi Kapoor is not aware of the connection between Zeenat Aman and Dharmendra. The police is looking to arrest Dharmendra but he escapes and takes shelter in a village, where people mistake him for a godman or sadhu. Dharmendra adopts the disguise to escape the police. Sachin and Ranjita are the two characters who don’t make much difference to the story.

In the song, which Sachin and Ranjita are singing in the garden ‘Chameli baagh”, Dharmendra is looking on, and I think later on he helps them in some way or they are both murdered, by the villains. Dharmendra is also reminded of his late wife Maushmi Chatterjee while watching the song. Lata Mangeshkar is play backing for both Ranjita and Maushmi in the song.

The sort of word play which was a signature of Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi songs, is visible in this song.

Hullo Atuldom

“Arpan” (1983) was produced and directed by J. Om Prakash who passed away exactly a year and month ago on 7th August 2019. His movies had titles mostly starting with an “A”, for example “Aap Ki Kasam”, Aakraman”, “Aaye Din Bahaar Ke”, “Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke” etc. He was the presenter of two Rajesh Khanna starrers “Raja Rani” & “Aan Milo Sajna” both produced by Jagdish Kumar and director of the first-ever movie that his son-in-law Rakesh Roshan produced “Bhagwan Dada”. He was also the producer of “Aandhi”.

He began his career as a producer with “Aas Ka Panchhi” through his production house Filmyug in 1961 and followed it up with “Ayee MIlan Ki Bela” “Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke” “Aankhon Aakhon Mein” etc turning director with “Aap Ki Kasam”. He was a clerk in a film distributors office in Lahore and ended up being a manager there before coming to Bombay post Partition of India.

He had a keen ear for good music that were lyrical and melodious. Of course his movies were mostly romantic and filled with family-emotions and values. At least that is what I remember from what I have seen in his films of the ’80s. He was associated with 23 movies from the ’60s to his last released in 2001- a Rahul Roy starrer called “Afsana Dilwalon Ka” post which he retired. Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the music directors of 12 of these movies .

The coming together of this triumvirate gave us ‘Suno Sajna Papihe ne’, ‘Saathiya Nahi Jaana’, ‘Achha toh hum chalte hain’, ‘Aadmi Musafir hain’, ‘Fauji gaya jab gaon mein’ etc etc. But if I am asked to choose songs that this association gave and make my playlist it will include ‘Palat meri jaan tere kurbaan’, ‘Yeh mausam aaya hain’, ‘Badra chhaye ke jhoolein pad gaye’, and some not-so-popular ones like ‘Somwaar ko hum mile’, ‘I am in love you are in love’, some soulful numbers like ‘Mere dushman tu meri dosti ko tarse’, ‘Yeh shama toh jali roshni ke liye’ and suddenly I will find enough songs to play for almost half a day and more. I notice that in mentioning songs that I like I haven’t touched a single movie of the ’80s like ‘Aas Paas’, ‘Arpan’, ‘Aasha’, ‘Apna Bana Lo’ etc.; these movies would feature as whole albums on my list.

So coming back to “Arpan”, I find that it is one-song away from Yyiippeeeehood. That is the reason to choose a song from that film to wish Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma on his 80th birthday. Of late he has been making appearances on some television channels as guest-of-honour to judge music contests. And that gives us, his fans, opportunities to hear anecdotes of his long musical career that began when he was around 12 years old. He was the son of trumpeter Ramprasad Sharma who was his first guru. He began learning to play the violin from the age of 8 and was further coached by the Goan musician Anthony Gonsalves and it is believed that “My name is Anthony Gonsalves” from Manmohan Desai’s ‘Amar Akbar Anthony” was the music duo’s way of acknowledging the tutor.

Pyarelal’s brothers were also musicians and his brother Gorakh Sharma was an expert at string instruments like Bass Guitar, Mandolin, Rubaab, Electric Guitar and had the opportunity to play in the song ‘Chaudvin Ka Chaand’ under Ravi’s music direction. Pyarelal’s other brothers Ganesh, Anand and others were all into music and Ganesh was a music director for movies made in the late ’60s through the ’70s.

“Arpan” may have been a movie which many followers of this blog would have given a miss thinking that it was Produced in Madras as that was the period when Jeetendra was deep into acting in films made by production houses of Madras and Hyderabad. Also the general story-line of the movie gives us that impression.

The movie was essentially a tearjerker where Reena Roy played Jeetendra’s fiance, who is forced to marry her boss Raj Babbar as punishment for having slapped him in the office and not allowing him to molest her etc. To further his intention, he kidnaps Jeetendra’s sister’s (Preeti Sapru) boyfriend (Shashi Puri) and keeps him captive till Reena agrees and marries him. This makes her a ‘bad character’ in the eyes of Jeetu’s mom (Dina Pathak) but only Jeetu’s friend (Sujit Kumar), sister and jija know the real reason for Reena’s marriage to Raj Babbar. The movie moves forward with Jeetu meeting Parveen Babi, marrying her, getting her pregnant etc. Then he happens to stumble upon Reena’s reason of marrying Raj post which there is misunderstanding with his wife, Reena becoming a widow, Parveen Babi loosing her baby so on and so forth. That is why I said that this was a tearjerker. Essentially a movie full of calamities for the heroine and it comes to an end with Reena consuming poison, making her way to Jeetu’s home and handing over her baby to Parveen Babi. Ultimate qurbaani so that her ex-lover can live happily ever-after.

Today’s song is a duet by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, written by Anand Bakshi (who else) and on-screen couple are Preeti Sapru and Shashi Pur.

Wishing Pyarelalji(DoB 3 September 1940) a very Happy Birthday.

Lyrics (Based on audio link)

nain mile ae
uske baad
phool khile ae
uske baad
chain gaya aa
uske baad
pyaar hua aa
uske baad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubarakbaad
nain mile ae
uske baad,
phool khile ae
uske baad
chain gaya aa
uske baad
pyaar hua
uske baad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad

uske baad
uske baad
aayegi woh raat

aaaaa
aayegi woh raat
sajan sajani ka ghoongat kholenge ae
do nainon ke prem taraazu mein preetam ko tolenge

dekhenge chup chaap tumhein hum
sharm se kuchh na bolenge
yeh chup rehne ka waada
bhool na jaana rakhna yaad

teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubarakbaad

aakhir yeh taqdeer humaari
kab tak humse roothhegi ee
aakhir yeh taqdeer humaari
kab tak humse roothhegi ee
oonchi oonchi duniya ki
deewaar giregi tootegi ee
chori chori milne se phir r
jaan humaari chhootegi
iss badnaami ke darr se ae
hum ho jaayenge aazaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad

uske baad
maine poochha uske baad

kya shaadi ke baad bhi saajan
aise geet sunaayenge ae
kya shaadi ke baad bhi saajan
aise geet sunaayenge ae
ya chhup baithhe door se sajni
ke mann ko tadpaayenge ae
sajni saajan se phir hum
miyaan biwi ban jaayenge
teri god mein munna hoga
mere honthon pe fariyaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad
