#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 79 # Remembering Director Tapan Sinha – His movies #
——————————————————————————————————————–

In our film industry we have many personalities who have left indelible mark of their craftsmanship and genius through their contribution to the Indian film Industry.

Some of them achieved this in spite of producing or directing very few films. Such few personalities have immortalized themselves in the history of Indian Cinema through their works.

Today we pay our tributes to one such personality – one of the most prominent directors Shri.Tapan Sinha. He can be considered to be in the leagues of Shri.Satyajit Ray, Shri.Mrinal Sen, and Shri.Ritwik Ghatak. He was conferred with the highest honors for films the ‘Dadasaheb Phalke’ award in 2006.

Today 15th January 2019 is the tenth ‘Remembrance Day’ of Tapan Sinha (02.10.1924 – 15.01.2009).

The ‘nuances of life reality’ in his works and the ‘greatness of his efforts’ behind the presentations on ‘screen’ as we get to watch, cannot be detailed in one article here.

To put in short about him, I am reproducing below the text mentioned in the blurb on the jacket of the VCD (of film ‘Safed Haathi -1977).

“He is arguably the most uncompromising film maker outside the orbit of parallel cinema. And his awe-inspiring body of work can possibly be matched by only a – Mrinal Sen or a Satyajit Ray. He is the grand old man of cinema– Tapan Sinha.

His filmography presents an amazing variety of subjects. Even when the Director has profusely entertained the audience, he has done it every time, with a new yarn promising new experiences for the filmgoers. And these have not been ordinary crowd-pleasers nor have they seemed mired in familiar formulas. A veritable commander of the box-office, Tapan Sinha has offered many super hit films in succession – namely- ‘Hatey Bazaare’, ‘Aapnjan’, ‘Ekhani’, ‘Safed Haathi’ etc creating a record that is unsurpassed even today.

Yet in each of these films, adapted faithfully from widely read literary works and neatly told, a serious observer may discover the creative burst that raises a popular work to an artistic level. This nonchalant mastery of spinning pleasurable surprises right on the screen has been discernible in all his films, even including his work containing raw realities of life like ‘Apanjan’ or ‘Raja’.

His major works have been in Bangla films and in Hindi he has produced/directed – ‘Zindagi-Zindagi-1972’, ‘Sagina-1974’, ‘Safed Haathi-1977’, ‘Aadmi aur Aurat-1982’ and ‘Aaj Ka Robinhood-1987’, and the last one ‘Anokha Moti-2000’.
(Ref wiki page on Tapan Sinha)

Out of the above movies I remember to have watched ‘Ek Doctor Ki Maut’ and ‘Safed Haathi’ on ‘doordarshan’.
On our blog we have already covered all songs from the film ‘Sagina-1974’ and ‘Zindagi-Zindagi-1972’.

Today we introduce a song from the film ‘Safed Haathi-1976’ which was directed by Tapan Sinha, and this movie ‘Safed Haathi-1976’ make its debut on the blog today.

‘Safed Haathi-1977’ (alias ‘White Elephant’) was directed by Tapan Sinha. It was a ‘Neelkamal Movies, Calcutta’ presentation.
It was produced by R.A. Jalan and Pratap Agarwal.

Subodh Roy was the editor of this movie. Its dialogues were written by Hridayesh Pandey.
Tapan Sinha who directed this movie had also written the story and screenplay of this movie.

The film had Shatrughan Sinha (in special appearance), Vijay Arora, Sadhu Mehar, Mala Jaggi, Gayatri, Kalyan Chatterjee, Bhaskar Choudhary, Vishwa Guha Thakurta, Reena Barua and Utpal Dutt as its cast. Child artist Ashwani makes a debut in this movie.

Music of this film was composed by Ravindra Jain who also wrote the lyrics of the four songs in this film. Yesudas, Hemlata, Ravindra Jain, Nirmala Mishra gave their voices to the songs in this film.

This movie was passed by Censor board on 18.10.1977.

(While giving the details of this movie HFGK Vol-V makes a note that from the ‘booklet’ of this movie it comes to light that it was earlier titled as ‘Puraskar’ (The Prize))

As mentioned above, I had watched this movie earlier on ‘Doordarshan’ (may be sometime around 1991-92) and I remember how thrilled I was then and I always like to watch movies that have some ‘message’ in it and watching a movie which has ‘elephant’ as a ‘central character’ always fascinates me.
In this movie too watching ‘Airaavat’ or the ‘white elephant’ whenever he appears on the screen is very very interesting and touching.

So, few years back I had bought the VCD of this movie so that I can watch it again with my family at home. I always thought that such movies should be watched by all irrespective of what our age is.

I would not like to discuss more on the story of this movie since I wish that one should watch this movie and enjoy its thrill, its message and its learning. Review of this movie is available at ‘Memsaab Story’ too.

This movie was awarded National Film Award for Best Children’s Film in 1978.
It also got a ‘Special Jury Award’ in the Sixth Competitive Festival “The Child in Our Time” 1983 in Mifed, Milan, Italy.
It participated in several prestigious International film festivals where it received high acclaim and was well appreciated for its contemporary theme, preservation of flora and fauna and emphasis on qualities of chivalry, adventure and integrity of character in children.

Today we get introduced ourselves to this first song of the movie on our blog which is sung by Yesudas and written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song from this movie ‘Safed Haathi’ and pay our tributes to Late Shri.Tapan Sinha ji on the blog here today …

Sometimes, suddenly and unexpectedly, Lady Luck smiles on you and you are so bewildered, you don’t know how to enjoy that moment of Luck. This happened in my case. I have been writing about songs in old time movies and discussing about the people who made that film, that song and the circumstances in which the movie was made etc.

Sometimes,I come across a film, about which nothing-absolutely nothing- is available. No information, no songs, nothing. This is the dead end. But like a true crusader, I continue my efforts about that film, even when, leaving it aside, I have continued with my work. At times, I strike Gold, when it is not expected and I feel like dancing in the rain !

It is not only about a song or a movie, even an actor can get me stumped and then suddenly, there is light at the end of the tunnel ! I can quote several such examples, but I will limit my discussion only about today’s film, song and the MD.

I bought HFGK in mid 2012, that is six years ago and since then film Chowrangee-42 was on my radar. I was very curious about this film, because this was the only Hindi film in which the Great Poet of Bangladesh- Kazi Nazrul Islam, had composed some songs ( 2 songs, confirmed) as a Music Director and also had written those two songs as a Lyricist.

Kazi Nazrul Islam is to Bangladesh, what Rabindranath Tagore is to West Bengal. While, to my knowledge, Tagore never wrote any Naat or a Muslim religious verse, kazi wrote hundreds of Bhajans and Geets on Lord Rama and Krishna. Though many films- Bangla and Hindi- are based on the stories or novels of Tagore, he has not contributed anything directly to any Hindi film ( I do not know about Bangla films). On the other hand Kazi has written story of film Sapera-39 and provided Lyrics and Music to film Chowrangee-42 directly. Like Tagore’s Rabindra Sangeet, it was Nazrul Geeti in Bengal. I am not comparing them. Both were great souls.

The life story of Kazi is full of ups and downs. His last few years were spent in Glory but in very bad health.There were several deaths in his family. His wife became paralytic and he spent time in a Mental Hospital in Ranchi. After the formation of Bangladesh in 1971, the new country, invited him, bestowed honours on him, declaring him ” The National Poet”. The Bangladesh government also took good care of him in his last 4 years, but he was medically unfit to enjoy his glory.

Kazi Nazrul Islam (24 May 1899 – 29 August 1976) Composer and songwriter was born in Burdwan Dist., Bengal. With Tagore he was the major influence on popular Bengali music in the 20th C. Known as the Bidrohi Kavi or Rebel Poet and directly associated with radical nationalist movements (e.g. through the journal Dhoomketu which he edited in 1922, leading to his imprisonment on a charge of sedition), his poetry constitutes the first radical intervention into Hindu and Muslim devotional music, e.g. his famous addresses to the goddess Kali, his ghazal compilations (Chokher Chatak, 1929) and Islamic devotionals (Zulfikar, 1932). Much of his music, continued by the IPTA’s Bengali song repertoire, was polemically seen as a radical-romantic use of the ‘ tradition’ (e.g. Salil Choudhury, 1955). One of the first composer-writers to sign contracts with major record companies in Bengal (for Megaphone and Senola and later HMV) and with the Indian Broadcasting Corp., opening up new employment opportunities to a generation of younger composers such as Anil Biswas, S.D. Burman, Kamal Dasgupta and even Kishore Kumar (whose song Ai ek dui tran char gili gili/bam chick boob chick badhke bol in Kehte Hain Mujhko Raja, 1975, adapts Islam’s famous Cham chiki ude gelo). Created an urban variation of tribal jhumur music for Sailajananda Mukherjee’s Pataal Puri and wrote the songs for Nandini (1941) and Dikshul (1943). Some sources credit him as director for Dhruva, in which he played the Hindu sage Narad. Started Bengal Tiger Pics with Abbasuddin Ahmed. Their film of Islam’s novel Madina remained unfinished.

A significant impact of Nazrul’s work in Bengal was that it made Bengali Muslims more comfortable with the Bengali arts, which used to be dominated by
Bengali Hindus. His Islamic songs are popular during Ramadan in Bangladesh. He also wrote devotional songs on the Hindu Goddess Kali. Nazrul also composed a number of notable Shyamasangeet, Bhajan and Kirtan, combining Hindu devotional music.

Bengali polymath, poet, writer, musician, revolutionary and philosopher. Popularly known as Nazrul, his poetry and music espoused Indo-Islamic renaissance and intense spiritual rebellion against fascism and oppression. Nazrul’s impassioned activism for political and social justice earned him the title Bidrohi Kobi (The Rebel Poet). His musical compositions form the avant-garde genre of Nazrul geeti (Music of Nazrul). Accomplishing a large body of acclaimed works through his life, Nazrul is officially recognised as the National Poet of Bangladesh and highly commemorated in India and the Muslim world.
Born into a Bengali Muslim Quazi (Kazi) family, Nazrul received religious education and worked as a muezzin at a local mosque. He learned of poetry, drama, and literature while working with theatrical groups. After serving in the British Indian Army, Nazrul established himself as a journalist in Calcutta. He assailed the British Raj in India and preached revolution through his poetic works, such as Bidrohi (The Rebel) and Bhangar Gaan (The Song of Destruction), as well as his publication Dhumketu (The Comet). His nationalist activism in the Indian independence movement often led to his imprisonment by British authorities. While in prison, Nazrul wrote the Rajbandir Jabanbandi (Deposition of a Political Prisoner). Exploring the life and conditions of the downtrodden masses of the Indian subcontinent, Nazrul worked for their emancipation. His poetry and music fiercely inspired Bengalis during the Bangladesh Liberation War.
During his visit to Comilla in 1921, Nazrul met a young Bengali Hindu woman, Pramila Devi, with whom he fell in love, and they married on 25 April 1924. Brahmo Samaj criticised Pramila, a member of the Brahmo Samaj, for marrying a Muslim. Muslim religious leaders criticized Nazrul for his marriage to a Hindu woman.

Nazrul’s writings explore themes such as love, freedom, and revolution; he opposed all bigotry, including religious and gender. Throughout his career, Nazrul wrote short stories, novels, and essays but is best known for his poems, in which he pioneered new forms such as Bengali ghazals. Nazrul wrote and composed music for his nearly 4,000 songs (including gramophone records), collectively known as Nazrul geeti (Songs of Nazrul), which are widely popular today. In 1942 at the age of 43 Nazrul himself fell ill and gradually began losing his power of speech. His behaviour became erratic, he started spending recklessly and fell into financial difficulties. In spite of her own illness, his wife constantly cared for her husband. However, Nazrul’s health had seriously deteriorated and he grew increasingly depressed. He underwent medical treatment under homeopathy as well as Ayurveda, but little progress was achieved before mental dysfunction intensified and he was admitted to a mental asylum in 1942. Spending four months there without making progress, Nazrul and his family began living a quiet life in India. In 1952, he was transferred to a psychiatric hospital in Ranchi. Through the efforts of a large group of admirers who called themselves the “Nazrul Treatment Society”, Nazrul and Promila were sent to London, then to Vienna for treatment. The examining doctors said he had received poor care, and Dr. Hans Hoff, a leading neurosurgeon in Vienna, diagnosed that Nazrul was suffering from Pick’s disease.It was rumoured that this was because of slow poisoning by the British Government. His condition was judged to be incurable, Nazrul returned to Calcutta on 15 December 1953. On 30 June 1962 his wife Pramila died, and Nazrul remained in intensive medical care. He stopped working due to his deteriorating health.

On 24 May 1972, the newly independent nation of Bangladesh brought Nazrul to live in Dhaka with the consent of the Government of India. In January 1976, he was accorded the citizenship of Bangladesh.Despite receiving treatment and attention, Nazrul’s physical and mental health did not improve. In 1974. his youngest son, Kazi Aniruddha, a guitarist, died, and Nazrul soon succumbed to his long-standing ailments on 29 August 1976.

His Filmography – 1937: Bidyapati (Writer), 1938: Gora, 1939: Sapurey (Writer), Sapurey/Sapera (Writer), 1942: Chauranghee, Chauranghee, 1949-Chattagram Astraghar Lunthan, 1972: Padi Pishir Barmi Baksha (Lyricist) ( information adapted from Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema and wiki).

I was ecstatic when recently, I could lay my hands on one song of this film, composed and written by Kazi. These songs are so rare that for the last 76 years none of these songs have ever appeared on public domain, like YT etc.
Film Chowrangee-42 was a Muslim social film on a professional singer’s life, who had a Kotha on Chowrangee area of Calcutta. The film was produced by Fazli brothers, known to make films on Muslim background only. The film was directed by the younger brother- Sibtain Fazli.

The producers Fazli brothers, were the sons of Khan Bahadur S M Fazal Rabb of Beharaich- about 125 kms from Lucknow in U.P. The elder brother was Hasnain and the younger brother was Sibtain ( born on 9-7-1916). Hasnain Fazli was born on 12-1-1912 in United Province (today’s U.P.). Their family belonged to the noble Sayyads of Allahabad. Hasnain was a graduate of Allahabad University. Though his father was a Khan Bahadur, a Government Jahagirdar and lifetime Magistrate, Hasnain refused to do any service and did not complete his I.C.S. studies, as expected by the family.

He had a creative mind. He joined film line. He was very keen on making a film on Muslim Society. In those days it was considered outrageous to produce a film on Muslim society for fear of the ire of the fundamentalists. However Hasnain broke the barrier and the first Muslim Social film Qaidi-40 was produced and directed by him under the banner of Film Corporation of India, Calcutta. Very cleverly, the film was made at Calcutta, ( though the film depicted life in Lucknow ), and not at Bombay to avoid any disruption in the making of the film. The film was made so well that it was received very well by all strata of population, including the Muslims and became a hit film. After this Hasnain made more Muslim social films like Masoom-41, Chowranghee-42, Fashion-43 and Ismat-44. These films discussed Muslim family life and problems etc.

His first directorial film was at his 23rd year- Triya Charitra-35. Then came Sajiv Murti-35, in which the Handsome Vijay Kumar from Himachal Pradesh was the Hero. Fazli brothers also made Dil-46, Mehendi-47, Duniya-49 and Khoobsurat-52. Hasnain was so talented that he himself wrote the film stories, screenplays and dialogues usually. Sibtain Fazli directed 3 films-Chowranghee-42, Ismat-44 and Mehendi-47.

After the Partition, Fazli brothers migrated to Pakistan. Sibtain remained in Pakistan and Hasnain returned to India to make 2 more films. Later Hasnain too relocated to Lahore and died there on 16-7-1957. His brother Sibtain ( 9-7-1916 to 25-7-1985) who had directed 3 films in India, made 4 films in Pakistan, including the most popular Urdu film of Madam Nurjehan – Dupatta-52.

Film Chowrangee had 13 songs. It included 3 wonderful Ghazals- 2 by Jigar Moradabadi and 1 by Mirza Ghalib ( I have heard these songs). It will be the first time that a song from this film-in its full form- will be available on You Tube, because our Sadanand ji Kamath has uploaded it on my request. Thanks Sadanand ji.

Hanuman Prasad Sharma ( aka Hanuman Prasad Triloki. Both are same. Triloki and Sharma are surnames in Brahmins. This is like the other case. The son of Bhagatram Batish, of Husnlal-Bhagatram duo, Ashok, calls himself as Ashok Sharma.) was also a Music Director for this film. With this film he made his debut in Hindi films. Unfortunately, except for 4 songs-2 for each MD- HFGK is silent on the singer or MD’s names of remaining 9 songs, making it difficult to know the reality. However, according to Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, the Lori, ” aa jaa ri nindiya ” is also composed by Kazi. May be, in future, some proof or information will emerge to confirm or clarify matters !

There were as many as 5 Lyricists for these 13 songs- Kazi Nazrul Islam, Arzoo lucknowi, Mirza Ghalib, Jigar Moradabadi and Partav Lucknowi. With this song , not only the movie, but also Kazi Nazrul Islam makes his Debut on the Blog as an MD and a Lyricist. Enjoy this historical song….

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 74# Remembering Kishore Kumar on his Remembrance Day #
———————————————————————-

Today (13th October’2018) is the 31th Remembrance Day of – singer, actor, director, producer, lyricist, music director, writer – and our ‘most beloved and versatile genius’ Kishore Kumar.

I had planned a write-up for this occassion several months back and had even started work on it but it kept getting delayed for various reasons. My recent travel to India and the work load after getting back to work also prevented me from finalizing that write up.

Yesterday I browsed through the list of Kishore Kumar songs earlier shared by me to Atul ji and still to be posted. I found that many of these songs are yet to be posted on the blog. Despite this list, I was not able to pick the song to cover on this occasion.

Whole day yesterday(12 october 2018),I was just thinking and it was looking like I may not be able to send a song at all for this occasion. But how can I miss this occasion without a song …

Finally, I turned to my list of ‘songs that bring back memories’ which I had compiled in 2014 for one of my write up on the blog, to find if any Kishore Kumar songs in that list were yet to be covered in the blog.

I found many such songs in this list that are still to make it on the blog. From these many songs I selected today’s song as my presentation on this occasion here…

This song is from the movie ‘Ram Bharose-1977’ …

I had not watched this movie in those years and even till now so I cannot write much about this movie.
However, this song somehow has been stuck up in my mind and I like it very much, may be because of its tune and singing of it by Kishore Kumar. Or May be because of its frequently heard on the loud speakers and radio I guess.
I think it’s a nice hummable song 😊

I watched the video of this song only now during the preparation of this post and I think this song is better heard than to watch 😊

‘Ram Bharose-1977’ (alias ‘God’s Own Man’) was directed by Anand Sagar for ‘Sagar Art (International) Films, Bombay’ and Ramanand Sagar.
It was produced by Subhash Sagar.

Star cast of this movie includes Randhir Kapoor, Rekha, Amjad Khan, Dara Singh, Keshto Mukherjee, Kanan Kaushal, Madan Puri, Nazir Hussain and Sujit Kumar. It also had Raza Murad, Tom Alter, Shailesh Kumar, Jagirdar, Jagdish Raj, Chaman Puri, Master Baboo, Javed Khan, Shiv Raj, Sole, Shahid Bijnori, Ram Murthy, Deepak Raj and Shetty.
Editing for this movie was done by Lachmandass. Dialogues of this movie were written by (Late) Krishan Chander. This movie was written by Moti Sagar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 21.04.1977.

There were Six songs in this movie composed by Ravindra Jain. Hasrat Jaipuri, Ravindra Jain, Tajdar Taj and Dev Kohli were the lyricist for this movie. Asha Bhonsle, Narinder Chanchal, Kishore Kumar and Mohd Rafi gave their voices to the songs of this movie.

Going by the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK the other song I am familiar with is ‘Chal Chal Re Kathmandu’. 🙂

Today’s song is the first song from this movie to appear on the blog… and ‘Raam Bharose-1977’ is thus making a debut on the blog.

I have noted the lyrics as per the longer audio version having three stanzas, whereas the video link I find is having two stanzas only.

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Kishore Kumar which is composed by and written by Ravindra Jain …

Raam se badaa Raam ka naam …Banaaye sabke bigde kaam …

(PS :- Incidentally after few days we are going to celebrate ‘Vijay Dashmi’ and remembering Lord Shri Raam, my best wishes to all in advance )

“Anmol Tasweer”(1978) was directed by Satyen Bose for Children’s Film Society, Bombay. This “Children’s” film had Ashok Kumar (guest appearance), Preeti Ganguly, Anoop Kumar, Birbal, Master Pappu Chagla, Baby Geeta Khanna, Miss Chintu, Praveen Pal, Bhagwan Sinha, Manik Dutt, Subrat Mahapatra, Moolchand etc in it.

It was believed those days that a film featuring many children constituted a children’s movie. And by that yardstic it was a Children’s movie. 🙂

The movie had one song according to HFGK.

Here is that song from “Anmol Tasweer”(1978). The song is a chorus song and the names of singers are uncredited. Loomba Brothers (whoever they were) are credited as the lyricist as well as music directors.

The song picturisation shows several children making fun of the bulk of Preeti Ganguly. Yes, children laughing at a overweight lady was considered light hearted comedy fit for a children’s movie those days.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie.

Since this song is the only so9ng in the movie, so “Anmol Tasweer”(1978) makes its debut as well as get YIPPEED in the blog with this song. 🙂 If every Hindi movie had just one song then life would have been much easy for those seeking to post “debutant” as well as “YIPPEE” movie everyday. 🙂

“Raat Ke Andhere Mein”(1967) was directed by Devraj for Ashok Films, Bombay. The movie had Dev Kumar, Sonia Sahni, Sahida, Dev Dutt, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Murad, Rajan Haksar etc in it.

HFGK lists six songs for the movie and leaves blanks indicating that the movie had other songs as well but their details are not known. Interestingly enough, the videos of the songs of the movie are available online, which suggests that the video of the movie is available as well. So I went through the whole movie, fast forwarding liberally and pausing only to check the songs. I came to the conclusion that the movie contains the same six songs as mentioned in HFGK. There are no additional songs. So the list of songs in HFGK for this movie is complete.

Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Raat Ke Andhere Mein”(1967) to appear in the blog. This song is the title song of the movie, which is picturised as a club song cum villain’s den song. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist as well as music director.

I am unable to identify the lady lip syncing the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her and others in the picturisation.


Song-Raat ke andhere mein (Raat Ke Andhere Mein)(1969) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Prem Dhawan

Lyrics

Blog Day : 3486 Post No. : 14002

Post number 14000 was written by Sudhir Ji on 1 february 2018. In that post, he made several interesting observations and he wanted my take on them. I will try to cover those points and make some points of my own.

While brieflyly discussing the previous thousandth posts, Sudhir Ji made this observation:

The 1K post

He did write that he expects the blog to go from “strength to strength” and that he would “. . .add many more thousands of songs […] in the times to come”. So this is one question I would like Atul ji to respond to specifically – was his expectations that we shall reach, where we have reached today, and still going strong??

It was 30 march 2009 when this 1000th post was published. That was nine years ago. The world was a very different place from what it has become now. I was based at Jabalpur and I hoped to stay there in future as well. I was happily settled there. It turned out that got transferred to another state in a few months time. If I was not able to foresee what was going to happen in a few months time, then how was I going to see into the future of the blog. 🙂

I was then like a batsman who worries about where his next run is going to come from. By that time, I had worked out my standard strategy of posting 6 songs daily for three days followed by seven songs on the fourth day thus adding 25 songs every four day. Repeating the same process four times, that would give me 100 songs in 16 days. So I was happily clocking 100 songs every 16 days. Those were simple days when we had not thought about “debutant” movies, “YIPPEE” movies etc. Even the concept of contributions by regulars had not taken shape. We did not have the team of contributors that we now have. I did not even have my pets at that time that have become such an important part of my life for the last six- seven years.

The pages about list of songs that we take for granted now a days were not there at that time the 1000th post was published. The “yearwise list of songs” was introduced seven days later, on 6 april 2009, followed by “moviewise list of songs” on 19 april 2009.

Very few songs were covered till then, so deciding upon “new” songs to cover was quite simple and easy those days. I was able to cover my six to seven song a day fairly comfortably, by the first half of the day itself.

No, I never thought at that time that the blog would one day have 14000 songs in it. At that time, I thought that I would run out of songs to cover after I had covered around 2500 songs. 🙂

Song post number 2000 was a rail song posted on 27 september 2009. The blog by now has 90 rail songs. I still have at least one great rail song up my sleeve. It is lying in the drafts for last seven years. It is a kind of song that may be used for a future thousandth song.

The “music directorwise list of songs” was introduced on 3 november 2009 and thus the three important song lists were put in place a little after the posting of the 2000th song in the blog.

There has been this demand for singerwise list of songs as well. Even that may come up, if I could persuade myself to do that. 🙂

As far as Raja’s tendency to enrich English dictionary with words like ‘mind-bloggling’, ‘gangout’, etc is concerned, let me assure our readers that Raja has been at it even before this blog began. We have been together in a cricket forum since 2005 and it was then and there that he had coined a term called “Atulism” for my kind of humour. He seems to have inspired others in the blog and now we find others too coining terms like “YIPPEE”, “Atulites” etc. 🙂

Raja had written the writeups for the 3000th and 4000th posts in the blog. These two posts also happened to be the thousandth posts of Lata and Rafi respectively.

5000th post was unprecedented for the blog for the levels of planning that it involved. It too combined an artist’s personal milestone with blog milestone, but the artist was far lesser known that Lata and Rafi. This less known artist, viz Bulo C Rani, was the composer of the iconic qawwali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“. This song was a long pending “farmaish” by many people.

The planning for this post began by the time the blog had around 4700 songs in it. Bulo C Rani was only on 21 songs at that time. His songs (most of them obscure) began to be posted in the blog with suspicious regularity and his 100th post coincided with the 5000th song in the blog on 13 november 2011.

This date, 13 november became an important date as far as thousandth posts for this blog are concerned. It was exactly one year later on 13 november 2012 saw the 7000th song being posted, though at that time this coincidence went unnoticed. It was only while we were planning for 9000th post that we realised that 13 november 2011 and 2012 had seen posting of 5000th and 7000th posts. So we went into an overdrive to ensure that the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013.

The above observations also mean that the blog was covering 2000 songs per year from 2011 to 2013. This led to the blog achieving its peak strike rate of 4.63 songs per day when the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013. Had we maintained this rate till today (2 february 2018), we would be on 16140 instead on 14000 !

We were unable to maintain that rate and we have fallen to a rate barely above 4 songs per day. But the fact that the blog still adds “new” songs daily (albeit at a lower rate) without fail means that we are going on and on and adding more songs.

Preparation for the 10000th song was quite a remarkable exercise involving tremendous teamwork and planning for nearly three weeks. All regulars of the blog wrote articles and they themselves were introduced through articles written by other regulars. That mega exercise then culminated into the posting of the 10000 th song that rewrote HFM history. The behind the story tales of the preparations and waiting for the 10000th post are fond memories that are still fresh in the minds of regulars despite the passage of more than three years.

The way the blog has evolved with time is something that neither I nor others would have visualised in the past. We nowadays interact online on whatsapp, email, facebook, phone etc. We have had several togethers, inadvertently coined “gangout” by Raja. They are in addition to bilateral meetings, of course.

I have attended just one “gangout” in December 2014 at Mumbai, which has been my only such meeting so far. I have had meetings with some regulars at Delhi, Nagpur, Lucknow etc as well.

The interactions with other regulars have led to several ideas that have been implemented in the blog. The list of songs (yearwise, moviewise, MD wise) were introduced as results of suggestions by Raja. The concept of YIPPEE movies came from Pradeep Raghunathan. Covering missing movies in the blog was an idea that came from Khyati Bhatt.

HFM related statistics that are available online (if any) are nowhere in the same league as cricket related statistics. I dream of the day when we will be able to have authentic statistics for artists the way we have authentic statistics from cricketers. Unlike cricket, where records are kept thanks to the British legacy of discipline in cricket, Indians have failed to keep authentic records of their history, including HFM history. Still, there are some diehard HFM fans, and some of them are our own regulars, who are helping collect hard to find details of HFM and putting them in one place for easy reference. We in this blog have covered all the available songs of KL Saigal and Suraiyya, and we are just a few songs short for artists like Naushad, SD Burman, OP Nayyar etc. Even in case of Rafi and Lata, we have already covered nearly 60 % of all their songs.

Whenever we post century (or thousandth) post of an artist, we try to give moviewise breakups of all their songs. For instance, I have given such breakups for Suraiyya, Rajinder Krishan, Naushad, OP Nayyar etc. My plan is to give such breakups for all artists who have more than 100 songs in the blog. That would be extremely useful statistical exercise in the field of HFM. So keep watching the blog in future when we add statistics for all major HFM artists.

We in this blog are extremely strong when it comes to making resolutions and sticking to them. We are more than one month into 2018 and we have managed to live up to the new year blog resolutions for 2018 so far. Even today (2 February 2018), the “debutant” movie (number 3820) has been introduced. So it is time now to introduce the YIPPEE movie of the day.

The YIPPEE movie of the day is ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975). This movie was directed by Hiren Nag for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. This movie had Sachi, Sarika, Khyati (new discovey), Madan Puri, Manhar desai, Agha, Dhumal, Sundar, V Gopal, CS Dube, Madhup Sharma, Pardesi, Jugnu, Sriram, Surendra Singh, Prakash Mishra, Imtiaz Pathan, Junior Mehmood, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Minu Mahtab, Saroj Borkar, Padma Khanna etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the blog. Following are the details:

Here is the ninth and final song from this movie. This final song is a joie de vivre bailgaadi song where Sachin is seen joyously lip syncing this song while moving ever so slowly on a bullock cart, with Sarika too as a co passenger. They would take frequent breaks enroute showing that they were enjoying the journey rather than thinking about the destination. this archtypical Rajshree Production kind of bailgaadi songs were used in some subsequent Rajshree Productions movie as well. The most memorable to such bailgaadi song was Kaun disaa mein leke chalaa re batohiyaa from “Nadiya Ke Paar”(1982).

The song is sung by Jaspal Singh. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as music director.

With this song, ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan (Geet Gaata Chal)(1975) Singer-Jaspal Singh, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
o dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
nadiya bahe re saare bandhanon ko tod
phoolo ki hansi mein basi hai meri jan
mujhko to apna sa lage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang
yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang
man ko na bandha maine kisi ke bhi sang
jal ke oopar tairoon main hans ke samaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
ओ धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

ऊंचे ऊंचे पर्वतों कि बादलों से होड़
ऊंचे ऊंचे पर्वतों कि बादलों से होड़
नदिया बहे रे सारे बंधनों को तोड़
फूलों कि हँसी में बसी है मेरी जान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

यूँ तो मेरी अंखियों ने
देखे कई रंग
यूँ तो मेरी अंखियों ने
देखे कई रंग
मन को ना बाँधा मैंने
किसी के भी संग
जल के ऊपर तैरूँ
मैं हंस के समान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

This movie, which was a musical blockbuster, had nine songs in it. As many as seven songs from the movie have been covered in the blog, including most of the well known songs.

Here is the eighth song from “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975) to appear in the blog. This song is acollection of Tulsidas’s chaupais from Ramcharitmanas. The song is sung by Jaspal Singh and it is picturised as a Ram bhajan on Sachin, with most other important characters in the movie joining him in chorus.

It is a nice and soothing bhajan, best heard in early mornings.

“Naiyya”(1979) was directed by Prashant Nanda for Chanda Pictures, Bombay. I became aware of this fact when I discussed the earlier songs from this movie. Initially I was under the impression that this movie was a Rajshree Productions movie and once again I reverted back to the same impression with passage of time 🙂

The movie had Zarina Wahab, Prashant Nanda (new discovery for Hindi movies), Baldev Khosa, Dinesh Thakur, Leela Mishra, Mohammad Mohsin (another new discovery), Jageerdaar, Dinesh Hingoo, Nandlal Sharma, c S Dubey, Shail Chaturvedi, Shivraj, Amrish Puri, Pardesi, Om Tripathi, Shankar Bhake, Manmauji, Rooplekha etc, along with guest appearances by Sulochana, Shubha Khote and Jayshree T.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of them have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Naiyya”(1979) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

The song is picturised as a village nautanki song on Jayshree T and her performance is being watched by many people including a very young and lecherous looking Amrish Puri. The picturisation also shows Zarina Wahab and Leela Mishhra passing through and giving looks of disapproval to the proceedings in general and Amrish Puri in particular.

It is a rare occasion for Hemlata to sing a song like this which was the forte of Asha Bhonsle and she has done a commendable job.

With this “phadakta hua” song, all the songs of “Naiyya”(1979) have been covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Mera joban bandha rupaiyya (Naiyya)(1979) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD- Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

mera joban bandha rupaiyya
o teri baaton mein aake sipahiya
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
mera joban bandha rupaiya
o teri baaton mein aake sipahiya
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main

mohe pata hai tore man ke khot ka
kaahe dikhaawe mohe koda note ka
mohe pata hai tore man ke khot ka
kaahe dikhaawe mohe koda note ka
ankhiyan se tohpe karke totka
o o o o o
ankhiyan se tohpe karke totka
bhaag jaaungi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
o mera joban bandha rupaiya
teri baaton mein aake sipahiya
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main

rakkha rupaiya maine mutthhi main bheench ke
kaise luta doon aise aankh meench ke
rakkha rupaiya maine mutthhi main bheench ke
kaise luta doon aise aankh meench ke
kharcha kare jo zara haath kheench ke
o o o o o
kharcha kare jo zara haath kheench ke
uspe lutaaugi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
o mera joban bandha rupaiya
teri baaton mein aake sipahiya
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main

“Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Vijay Kapoor for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Reeta Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Leela, Rajendra Nath, Abha Dhulia etc in it.

This movie sounds like a typical Rajshree Productions movie of those days made on the lines of “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977). While “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was a monster hit, most of the copycat movies that Rajshree productions came up with failed to create the same magic. After “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977), I went to watch Rajshree Productions next offering “Paheli” (1978), expecting the same high standards and I was badly let down. “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) came next and I natually did not watch it. I was in fact barely aware of this movie and its songs. However, I watched some moree Rajshree Productions movies later, but that was mainly for their blockbuster music. These movies were “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon se” (1978) and “Saawan Ko Aane Do” (1980). Two subsequent Rajshree movie that I liked for their story as well as music were “Sunayna” (1979) and “Nadiya Ke Paar” (1982).

Today (10 january 2018) is the 77th birth anniversary of Yesudas. I was looking for a Yesudas song to discuss on this occasion. Though it was Salil Chaudhary who introduced Yesudas in Hindi movies, it was Ravindra Jain who used Yesudas the most in Hindi movies and got the best out of him in his compositions. I have already covered many well known Yesudas songs under the baton of Ravindra Jain. I looked for Ravindra Jain compositions hoping to find a Yesudas song that is not yet covered. I was immediately in luck as I found this song from “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979).

This song is a piano song where the hero sits at the grand piano and sings a song that is basically an expression of love song addressed to the heroine who happens to be leaning against the said grand piano. Elders in the family and others are dutifully present on the occasion.

The song is sung by Yesudas and Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Arun Govil and Reeta Bhaduri. Elders like Madan Puri, Leela Mishra etc are present and look on indulgently.

We wish Yesudas a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. What a sweet and joyous song it is. A hidden gem of a song indeed.


Song-Kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho(Raadha Aur Seeta)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Both

Lyrics

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchiyon se pyaar na ho
pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

jeewan hai phool
man ek panchhi
saans saans mein geet re
man panchhi phir udna na chaahe
le jo use koi jeet re
jeena re wo kaisa agar kisi pe apna koi adhikaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

is anjaane shahar mein aake
man kitna bechain thha
kisko khabar thhi inhi galiyon mein
chhupa mere dil ka chain thha
khushi to khushi hai
us khushi ka honthon se chaahe izhaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

pahle pahal jab mujhse mile thhe
tum kitne hairaan thhe
tum meri main tumhari najar mein
dono hi naadaan thhe
mere humdum aisi galti hamse phir is baar na ho

pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho o o
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

This song is sung by Yesudas and Suresh Wadkar. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Prashant Nanda, Baldev Khosa (I hope I have identified him correctly) and Zarina Wahab.


Song-Tera kuchh khoya ho…Geeta raani Geeta raani hans de zara (Naiyya)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Suresh Wadkar, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

tera kuchh khoya ho to dhoondh den
kabhi dil toota ho to jod den
dil na dukha
maan bhi jaa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara

tera kuchh khoya ho to dhoondh den
kabhi dil toota ho to jod den
dil na dukha aa
maan bhi jaa aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara

saawan ne aawan ka nyota
bheja hai manbhaawan ko
nyota bheja hai manbhaawan ko
o o
ham ne to ek dev ko saupa
tere roop ke chandan ko
gori
tere roop ke chandan ko
hai raam sa aa sajan tera aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara

ik maanjhi ke ghar se tu gori
raaj mahal mein jaayegi
jaayegi
raaj mahal mein jaayegi
o o o
jo sukh hamne sapne mein dekhe
wo saare sukh paayegi
paayegi
wo saare sukh paayegi
dena nahin
hamko bhula aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara

main doonga tujhe kajra bindiya
main racha doonga mehandi mahaawar
khud ko bandhak rakh ke loonga
sona karoonga wo tujhpe nichhaawar
haathon ki choodiyaan
main doonga
paanwon ke bichhua
main doonga
chunri saadi
main doonga
main doonga
main doonga
main doonga
main doonga
hey
mil ke tujhe denge saja aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hans de o geeta raani
hans de zara
tera kuchh khoya ho to dhoondh den
kabhi dil toota ho to jod den
hamra kaha aa
maan bhi jaa aa
geeta raani geeta raani
hans de zara aa
hansde o geeta raani
hans de zara
