Hullo to everyone in Atuldom

Today 25th June 2017 is the 93rd birth anniversary of the legendary Madan Mohan.

At the outset, itself I should make it clear I am no authority on either Madan Mohan or any composer of that era. I have this disclaimer on all my writeups on legends of that era.

The best of these composers happened much before I even became aware that a song needs a lyricist, a composer, a singer and numerous musical instruments to make us-listeners fall in love with them. But for sure I love all music whether of the 50s, 60s, 70s or of the 80s to now. I am unsure of if I know any song of the 40s, hence I didn’t mention them in my list.

I love “lag ja gale ke phir yeh haseen raat ho na ho” as much as “simti si sharmayi si” or “bhor aayi gaya aandhiyaara”. I loved his “har koi chahta hai ek muthi aasmaan”; “mera naam abdul rehmaan”; “ai haseeno naazaneeno” much before I became aware (discovered this today) that they are all Madan Mohan compositions. Till yesterday they were all Kishore Kumar songs to be enjoyed. I loved his “kaun aaya mere man ke dwaare” as much as “tum bin Jeevan kaisa Jeevan”. I am a fan of all his work with Lata Mangeshkar-there are just too many songs to list out here. I am forever hooked on to “jhumka gira re” and “ai dil mujhe bata de”. I am not going to list anymore of my favourite songs; I am just moving on.

As I scrutinized the anniversary pages of this blog and the list of songs movie-wise page I zeroed in on a movie that is a family favourite; that is. everyone from my Grandpa (when he was there) to my teenage niece love the songs of this movie. Even I got my husband and his mom addicted to this movie after we shifted to Mumbai in the 90s. This movie had six or seven songs (I am unsure about the number we need HFGK to tell us the exact number) and the blog has only the popular three. Let us have one more today.

The movie was a N.C.Sippy, Romu Sippy & Hrishikesh Mukhrjee production for Rupam Chitra. Hrishikesh Mukherjee also directed it. It was given censor certificate on 30th June 1972 and released on July 7th the same year. So, we are also at the release anniversary of the movie. The movie had a small cast of Harindranth Chattopadhyay, Rajesh Khanna, Jaya Bhaduri, Asrani, A.K.Hangal, Durga Khote, Kali Bannerjee, Usha Kiran, Master Raju and Manisha. I think the name of the actor who played Jaya Bhaduri’s romantic interest is someone called Suraj. (I am sure Prakashchandraji will be able to give the right name).

Amitabh Bachchan was the narrator at the opening and closing of the movie.

I am most certain that everyone has by now understood that we are having a song from “Bawarchi” today to remember Madan Mohan on his birthday. The movie had dialogues by Gulzar. It was based on Tapan Sinha’s 1966 Bengali movie “Galpa Haleo Satyi”.

The songs were penned by Kaifi Azmi (another revelation for me; I seem to be discovering many things today). Todays’ song is semi classical in the voices of Chaube Maharaj (another discovery today, need light on this too) with Laxmi Shankar. This is Paintal tutoring Manisha (playing Meeta Sharma B.A.; daughter of A.K.Hangal and Durga Khote) kathak nritya. A little researching on Manisha and I found that she was married to Deb Mukherjee for a while. She is the mother of Ashutosh Gowarikar’s wife Sunita. And researching on Chaube Maharaj brought up the fact that he was son of Sukhdev Maharaj and that makes him brother to Sitaara Devi – found this in Kathak, Indian Classical Dance Art written by Sunil Kothari, page 71.

[Ed: The song is in three parts in the movie. The first two parts show Manisha practicing under the tutelage of Paintal. The third part shows her making use of her training in a dance competition. The video shown combines the three parts at one place.
The portion sung by Chaube Maharaj may need correction at several places. Knowledgeable raeders with keener ears are requested to point out the errors as applicable.]

Today (25 june 2017) is the 93rd birth anniversary of Madan Mohan (25 june 1924- 14 july 1975). We in this blog traditionally cover songs of artists on their anniversaries. Madan Mohan is a key artist for this blog and we indeed have discussed his songsextensively in the blog, not only on his anniversaries, but also on other days.

According to my records, Madan Mohan composed 627 songs in 93 released movies. This blog has 517 Madan Mohan compositions in the blog from 90 of these released movies, one unreleased movie and also one un-utilised song. 58 movies with Madan Mohan’s compositions are already YIPPEED in the blog. So only 31 movies (plus four movies as yet unrepresented in the blog) are left to be covered. In all, just over 110 odd Madan Mohan compositions are left to be covered.

It goes without saying that this blog is a one stop destination for lots and lots of Madan Mohan compositions at one location.

The earliest Madan Mohan movie that is not yet YIPPEED in “Anjaam”(1952). This movie was produced by V M Vyas and directed by Shanti Kumar for Sunrise Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Premnath, Vyjyanti Mala, Kuldeep Kaur, Yakoob, Dulari, Jankidas, H Prakash, Shammi, Chitralekha etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs are already covered. Only one out of the two remaining songs is available online. The one song that is available is a delightful light hearted song that tells us the qualities that a husband should possess. Then it is followed by a wishlist of qualities that a biwi should possess. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Shamshad Begam. Asha Bhonsle tells us about the desirable qualities of a husband-“he should get you a home, a car, should be at your beck and call, etc). Shamshad Begam’s description of a biwi is quite togue in cheek though-“a biwi should divide her day in hotel and night at club. She should be interested in learning all kinds of dances and looking after household works should be least of her priorities”. 🙂

This light hearted song is written by Qamar Jalalabadi, who was quite adept in coming up with such fun songs dealing with Husband-wife nok jhonk. Later he would pen the immortal songs of “Pehli Taareekh”(1954) as well which dealt with the same topic.

Music is composed by Madan Mohan, of course.

The song is sung in one breath, and there is no gap anywhere. So this song, more than three minutes long has just one stanza in it, without any pause !

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, the seventh and penultimate song from “Anjaam”(1952), the only song remaining to be covered is a group song viz-“Saanwar ke rang raati”. I have not been able to locate this song online. So unless this song can be unearthed and posted, “Anjaan”(1952) will remain unYIPPEED. I request our knowledgeable readers to keep an eye on this missing song and inform us as and when this song gets located.

For now, here is this fun song from “Anjaam”(1952) on the occasion of Madan Mohan’s birth anniversary.


Song-Baalam ho to aisa (Anjaam)(1952) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Madan Mohan

In Hindi movies, lip syncing of songs is mainly the preserve of the lead actors. Sometimes we find character actors too getting to lip sync a song or two. viz suffering maa is seen singing bhajans or remonstrating with the Almighty. 🙂

There are some occasions when small time actors too get to sing songs. These songs tend to be of the “roadside tamasha” genre of song, where a small time actor is seen playing a dholak or harmonium while a small time actress dances. Public dutifully gather around then in a circle and watch the performance standing perfectly still.

Such songs could be solo or a duet. One well known song of this genre is the duet song from “Zanjeer”(1973) viz. Deewaane hain deewaanon ko na ghar chaahiye which was picturised on Gulshan Bawra and Sanjana.

Here is a fenmale solo song of the same genre. This song is from “Ghar Ka Chiraag”(1967). It was a movie which was produced and directed by Jagdev Bhabhri for Harinath Films, Bombay.

The movie had Waheeda Rehman, Dharmendra, Indrani Mukherjee, Master Ajay, Abhi Bhattacharya, Purnima, Tuntun, Balraj Sahni, Jabeen Jalil, Jagdev, Dev Kumar etc in it.

In this song, we find a lady singing and dancing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice, whereas a gentleman plays harmonium.

The video is not clear. Even if it was clear, it is unlikely that I would have been able to identify the actors. 🙂 I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors.

Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.


Song-Jaane kaise chori chori balma ne dekha (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1967) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Madan Mohan
Unknown male voice

Lyrics

jaane kaise chori chori balma ne dekha
dil bekaraar ho gaya ji
unse pyaar ho gaya
jaane kaise chori chori balma ne dekha
dil bekaraar ho gaya ji
unse pyaar ho gaya
unse pyaar ho gaya
unse pyaar ho gaya
dil
dil dil haaye dil bekaraar ho gaya ji
unse pyaar ho gaya

baat ik raat ki thhi
raat barsaat ki thhi
baat ik raat ki thhi
raat barsaat ki thhi
thi idhar sharam
udhar zid mulaakaat ki thhi
pahle aahon ne kaha
phir nigaahon ne kaha
aa laga loon main galey
unki baahon ne kaha
unhoon
uske baad

sunke thhamna haaye thhamna
sunke thamna haaye mera dushwaar ho gaya
dushwaar ho gaya
dil
dil
dil haaye dil bekaraar ho gaya
jaane kaise chori chori balma ne dekha
dil bekaraar ho gaya ji
unse pyaar ho gaya

As soon as he discovers that I have uploaded a new post, Arvinder ji (I should say, Dear Arvinder ji) is immediately on my case – “where are the songs that I have requested”. And so it transpires this time also. As soon as he became aware of my previous post (of Tuesday early morning), I have been getting calls and messages of all types reminding me of his list of requests for songs that are very dear, but are not easily available at this time. We had a small get together of our group yesterday afternoon. Arvinder ji was also present. And I don’t need to add much more to say how he urged me to post the songs he has requested.
