Missing Films of 1960s – 63
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Shamma Jali To Jala Parwaana
Pyaar Bana Afsaana. . .

The film, ‘Pyaar Bana Afsaana’ was eventually never released. However the songs were already recorded and released. This song caught the attention of the listening public, and it did become quite a popular memory in the radio listening days.

Remembering Krishna Kalle – three years ago this day, she passed away at the age of 74.

In 1957, when she was declared the winner of a national level singing award for young talent, she received this award from the hands of the then President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad. More awards and recognitions followed in the subsequent years. In 1965, she was honored as the ‘Golden Voice of India’.

In 1960 she joined the All India Radio in Bombay (now Mumbai). However, within three or four years, she made her debut as a playback singer in the film industry. As per Geet Kosh, her first song came in the film ‘Daanveer Karna’ in 1965.  She continued to be active in both the Hindi and Marathi cinema, and has also sung some songs in Kannada films. Given the situation of the industry, this talented young singer did never make it to the top level of playback singing in the industry. She sang over 200 songs in Hindi films in an active career that spanned from mid 1960s to mid 1980s. Besides, she also has to her credit, about 100 songs in the Marathi film. In addition, there are almost another 100 non-film songs and bhajans recorded by her.

Today’s song is from the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’. This is a Sheikh Mukhtar film that is produced under the banner of Shimla Productions, and is directed by R Thakar. Besides Sheikh Mukhtar, the star cast is led by Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum. The other players in this films are Bhagwan, Madan Puri, Uma Dutt, Neelam, Nandini, Tuntun, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lakshmichaya, Kundan, Dilip Dutt, and Tiwari etc.

The story is a typical variation on the Sheikh Mukhtar tales. Shankar (Sheikh Mukhtar) is on the run from the police, for a crime believes he has committed; but actually he himself is mistaken. He flees from village and comes to Bombay, and becomes part of a gang led by Khan (Uma Dutt). Khan is a involved in criminal activities, but he is a man of his word. Shankar’s sister Kum Kum, also comes to Bombay in search of her brother. Sanjeev Kumar is an upright police officer. By a sequence of events, Kum Kum and Sanjeev Kumar meet at the police station, and he takes her to his home, since she has no place to stay. Love blossoms between them. Madan Puri, an old adversary of Shankar from the village, also comes to Bombay, and also starts working for Khan. Some more predictable events happen and then all is sorted out for a happy ending.

Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, three of which are written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and two by Akhtar Romani. The sixth song does not have a lyricist name mentioned against it. Today’s song is from the pen of Naqsh Lyallpuri. The music direction of this film is by Vedpal.

This is a ‘villain’s den’ song. Kum Kum has reached the adda of Khan. Khan is enamored by her beauty and wants her to dance for him. At first she refuses. He then promises her that no harm whatsoever will come to her and that he takes the responsibility to protect her. Since she has a purpose i.e. to locate her brother, hesitatingly she agrees. And the song follows. The song is delightful and melodious, and a very pleasing listen. When the song ends, Madan Puri makes an entrance. The film is available online, in case you may be curious as to what happens next. 🙂

With this song, the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’ makes a debut on our blog today. Enjoy.

Song – Aankhen Pyaasi Lab Hain Pyaase  (Gunehgaar) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Naqsh Layallpuri, MD – Vedpal

Lyrics

pyaala bhar ke
jo hamne poochha
jee kisko pehle
kahaan se pehle
tamaam mehfil pukaar uthi
ji humko pehle
yahaan se pehle

aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

masti ka paighaam banin hain
zulfon ki rangeen ghataayen
masti ka paighaam banin hain
zulfon ki rangeen ghataayen
saaz dilon ke chhed rahi hai. . .
paayal ki betaab sadaayen
paayal ki betaab sadaayen
chhed inhin saazon ki dhun par
chhed inhin saazon ki dhun par
naghma naya saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya
sab ko pila saaqiya

aaj utha na koi pyaasa
mehfil ki awaaz yahi hai
aaj utha na koi pyaasa
mehfil ki awaaz yahi hai
jaam pe jaam diye ja saaqi
jeene ka andaaz yahi hai
jeene ka andaaz yahi hai
roz kahaan laati hain raaten
roz kahaan laati hain raaten
aisi fizaa saaqia
sab ko pila saaqiya
aankhen pyaasi lab hain pyaase
is mehfil mein sab hain pyaase
saagar utha saaqiya

प्याला भर के
जो हमने पूछा
जी किसको पहले
कहाँ से पहले
तमाम महफिल पुकार उठी
जी हमको पहले
यहाँ से पहले

आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया

मस्ती का पैग़ाम बनीं हैं
ज़ुल्फों की रंगीन घटाएँ
मस्ती का पैग़ाम बनीं हैं
ज़ुल्फों की रंगीन घटाएँ
साज दिलों के छेड़ रही है॰॰॰
पायल की बेताब सदाएं
पायल की बेताब सदाएं
छेड़ इन्हीं साज़ों की धुन पर
छेड़ इन्हीं साज़ों की धुन पर
नग़मा नया साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया

आज उठे ना कोई प्यासा
महफिल की आवाज़ यही है
आज उठे ना कोई प्यासा
महफिल की आवाज़ यही है
जाम पे जाम दिये जा साक़ी
जीने का अंदाज़ यही है
जीने का अंदाज़ यही है
रोज़ कहाँ लाती हैं रातें
रोज़ कहाँ लाती हैं रातें
ऐसी फ़िज़ा साक़िया
सबको पीला साक़िया
आँखें प्यासी लब हैं प्यासे
इस महफिल में सब हैं प्यासे
सागर उठा साक़िया

Joshila is a 1973 Bollywood thriller film directed by Yash Chopra. The film stars Dev Anand, Raakhee, Hema Malini, Pran, Bindu, Madan Puri, Manmohan Krishna, Padma Khanna, A. K. Hangal, Sulochana Latkar, Sudhir, Hercules, Master Satyajeet, I. S. Johar, Vikas Anand, Roopesh Kumar, Iftekhar, Jagdish Raj and Mahendra Sandhu.

Joshila was directed by Yash Chopra, produced by Gulshan Rai for Trimurti Films, written by Akhtar ul-Iman, Akhtar Mirza, Gulshan Nanda and C. J. Pavri, cinematography by Fali Mistry, edited by Pran Mehra and was released on the 19th of October 1973. The playback was by Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Dev Anand, lyrics were by Sahir Ludhianvi and the composer was R D Burman.

The storyline (according to IMDB) is:

Jailor Manmohan Krishan is responsible for looking after convicts undergoing sentences of rigorous imprisonment. He has a young, beautiful and captive daughter named Shalini. Shalini is a poet, one day while reciting her poetry, she meets with a young man, who introduces himself as Amar, who also happens to be a poet himself. The two of them spend beautiful moments together and finds themselves attracted to each other. Shalini wants to find out why Amar is in jail. She is told in no uncertain terms that Amar is in jail for murder – for killing the brother of his former lover, Sapna. She also found out that this is not true and would strive to the best of her merit to get Amar release from jail because she is in love with him and would like to marry him.

In this song, Padma Khanna lip syncs and dances with a male counterpart (unidentified) to “Kaanp Rahi Main” in Joshila 1973 sung by Asha Bhonsle, penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Rahul Dev Burman,

There were eight songs in the movie, of which four have been covered earlier in this blog. This is the fifth song to be posted.

Now, none of the regulars can say they have not heard this song. In a film that boasts of more than one song that competes for the title of the best song in the film, this song surely is one of the best songs in this film. Wow – that sure is saying something for the quality of songs of this film. In 1962, music director Ravi has been active as an independent music director for about seven years now, and he already has about 30 films behind him, that he has composed for. His films include such notable hits as ‘Ek Saal’ (1957), ‘Dilli Ka Thug’ (1958), ‘Ghar Sansaar’ (1958), ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’ (1960), ‘Ghunghat’ (1960), ‘Gharaana’ (1961), ‘Modern Girl’ (1961), ‘Bombay Ka Chor’ (1962) and many more. And then in 1962, out comes this Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen starrer called ‘China Town’ – and the popular response is “Baar Baar Dekho, Hazaar Baar Dekho”. Oh yes, the songs of this film – one just does not feel done with them, no matter how many times you have heard them.

Produced and directed by Shakti Samant, the cast of actors includes such notables – Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen, Madan Puri, SN Bannerjee, Keshav Rana, TunTun, Rashid Khan, Polson, Samson, Shetty, Jeevankala, Mridula and about twenty more names.  Songwriter of all the eight songs in this film is Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music, already mentioned, is by Ravi.

Eight songs in all, seven of which have already been showcased on our blog. And we come to the yippeee night for this film, brining on board this last, but not the least, songs of this film. It is a lovely composition, and just by listening to it, even without the visual, the image that comes to mind is – Helen. Ravi has tried to recreate the magic of “Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu” – albeit a slower pace, and has done a great composition.

But wait. What is this that I discover? The song that we have always heard in the film, and also as generally available in most uploads – goodness that song is missing from the listings in Geet Kosh. This question took up most of my time today afternoon and evening. I must admit that either I have been forgetful, or plain ignorant. Other folks may already know this, but this song has two versions, which, as I discovered after some leg work on the internet and searching my own collection, are quite different from each other, in terms of wordings. The tune and the melody is exactly the same but the words are noticeably different.

The Geet Kosh listing shows the title of this song as “Laakhon Haseenon Se Hai Gulzar China Town”. But as we play the video clip of this film, this song appears as the film beginning song, with the title line changed to “Rangeen Bahaaron Se Hai Gulzar China Town”. This latter version is the one that is the most available in all the searches one makes online. It is almost as if the former version does not exist. I checked in my collection, and am relieved to find that I have both versions in the folder of this film. And then, with some more intense search online, I am finally also able to locate a Sa Re Ga Ma upload, which is the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version. The upload comment specifically states that this recording is from the vinyl record prepared from the sound track. There is some error here possibly, because the sound track version is “Rangeen Bahaaron Se”. I checked some more and then I am able to locate an Eraksoldies upload of an SLBC (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corp) program that presents all songs of this film. Knowing this is an SLBC recording, these songs are quite surely from 78 rpm records. And this selection contains the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version. I checked again in my collection, and sure enough, this version in my collection also is from a 78 rpm recording. So anyways. . .

What may have been the reason to make two versions, is not clear at this time. We know that it was an era that all songs were recorded twice, once for the 78 rpm record, and once for the final sound track. We see many instances that the two versions are different, in that there is either a different antaraa, or an additional antaraa in the sound track version. More noticeably, the difference in the two versions generally is the music – different lengths of preludes and interludes, maybe an extra couplet in the beginning, subtle variations in the music arrangement and the instruments used. However, it is only rarely that we see that there is a considerable variation in the wordings of different lines themselves. It is generally accepted that the 78 rpm version is released first. Also generally that both versions are recorded simultaneously. But yes, there are known cases where these two recordings may have been done at different points in time, as per circumstantial requirements. Recall the song of ‘Chhalia’ (1960) in which the song “Chhalia Mera Naam. . .” was re-recorded for sound track after the censors raised objections to some words in the original recording.

By that logic, it would seem that the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version is recorded earlier and the “Rangeen Bahaaron Se” version which appears in the sound track was probably done later. The former, 78 rpm version carries two antaraas, and the latter soundtrack version carries three antaraas. And there is a sizeable modifications of words themselves. Now what prompted these wording changes – that needs to be explored. I would request our knowledgeable readers and friends to please add information related to this query.

The earlier songs posted for this film are listed below.

Baar Baar Dekho Hazaar Baar Dekho 617 25-Jan-09
Dekho Ji Ek Baalaa Jogi 3486 2-Feb-11
Yamma Yamma Yamma Tu Parwaana Main Shamma 4858 21-Oct-11
Hum Se Na Poochho Hum Kahaan Chale 11688 24-Dec-15
Ye Rang Na Chhootega Ulfat Ki Nishaani Hai 13586 15-Sep-17
Bada Qaatil Hai Mera Yaar China Chin Chin Chu 13917 14-Jan-18

 

Of the above listed songs, the “Yamma Yamma Yamma. . .” song actually includes two songs, which are listed at nos. 5 and 6 in the Geet Kosh. And the song “Bada Qaatil Hai Mera Yaar. . .” is the song listed at no. 8 in the Geet Kosh.

So we bring to Yippeee land, this most musical film, that started its journey on our blog close to – goodness, nine years. Wow. Maybe one day we shall do an analysis on the patterns in the time taken to bring all songs of a film on board. Maybe it brings out some interesting results.

Enjoy both these “Rangeen Bahaaren” and “Laakhon Haseeen” versions of the song. And welcome ‘China Town’ to Yippeee land. 🙂

[Ed Note: Ah yes, and the titling on the video clip (it is uploaded in the Rajshri channel) is also incorrect. They have captioned the upload as “Thandi Bahaaron Se. . .” whereas it is very clearly heard as ‘Rangeen Bahaaron Se. . .”.]

Blog Day : 3455 Post No. : 13857

The new year 2018 began yesterday. We started celebrating the birthdays of artists from the first day of the year itself, by discussing a Nana Patekar song. Nana Patekar is one of many artists who chose the new year day to be born. 🙂

As far as our regulars are concerned, they are not too far behind. They are just one day behind Nana Patekar. As many as three of our regulars, namely Pradeep Raghunathan, Peevesie’s mom and Sheela ji(wife of Avinash Scrapwala) are celebrating their birthdays today on 2 january 2018. We in this blog wish them all very happy birthdays.

We have just the right song available with us to greet them. This song is from “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975).

The songs of this movie, especially its title song used to be a big rage those days. Jaspal Singh made his mark as a playback singer with this movie.

Most songs from this movie were sung by lesser known singers, namely Jaspal Singh, Chandrani Mukherji, Hemlata etc. Songs sung by Jaspal Singh in the movie were the most popular songs. But this movie also had the voices of legendary singers, viz Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar utilised once each.

I have not seen the movie but I had listened to its songs. The songs were quite popular and would play on the loudspeakers every where. I still remember those days of 1975 when I would be going on my way from my home towards my school and nearing the railway footoverbridge over Ranchi Railway station when the title song of the movie would be blaring out from a loudspeaker located nearby.

I cannot believe that it was 42 years ago that I used to listen to the songs of “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975) on loudspeaker. That is nearly half a century ago. If I go to the same location now, hoping to relive those days, I am sure that I would feel let down. Most probably that place may have undergone a sea change, with concrete jungle having come up in that place which used to be an open field, fit to be used for playing cricket, among other uses. Even my school (where I used to go) has now been relocated.

The movie had nine songs in it. Six of them, including the duet by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle (Shyam abhimaani o shyaam abhimaani) has been covered in the blog.

The movie had a solo song by Kishore Kumar in it. It was one of the rare occasions where Ravindra Jain used Kishore Kumar’s voice. But he would always make Kishore Kumar’s voice count in his compositions. The most well known Kishore Kumar song composed by Ravindra Jain is the iconic “Chor Machaaye Shor” (1973) song- Le jaayenge le jaayenge dilwaale dulhaniya le jaayenge.

As I have not seen “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975), so I am not sure how various songs in the movie have been used. Lyrics of this Kishore Kumar song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala as far back as in 2012. Somehow this song has eluded being covered in the blog. I discover that this song is a “birthday” song. That way it is an appropriate song for the occasion of the birthdays of three of our regulars.

The picturisation shows this song lip synced by Madan Puri who is seen singing this song to celebrate the birthday of Sachin. Those were simple days when mostly children used to get to celebrate their birthdays in real as well as reel lives in India. 🙂

The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

HFGK counts this song as one song though this song had two versions. Apart from the well known happy version, this song has a brief sad version of it too.

Here is wishing all our young at heart birthday kids a very happy birthday today.


Song-Bachpan har gham se begaana hota hai (Geet Gaata Chal)(1975) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Chorus

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

HAPPY VERSION:-
————————-
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Janam ka shubh din har din se
Suhaanaa hotaa hai
Ke bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Hota hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai

Ho o ho o ho o ho ho o
Ho o ho o ho o ho ho o

Koi fikr naa chintaa
Masti ka aalam
Jeevan khel saa lagtaa hai
Jeevan khel saa lagtaa hai
Sukh milte hain saare raahon mein
Phir ke
ghar to jail saa lagtaa hai
Ghar to jail saa lagtaa hai
Ghar to jail saa lagtaa hai
Ho isi umar mein khushiyon kaa
Khazaanaa hotaa hai
Ke Bachpan har gham se
O bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai

Ham dhoondhte hain jeevan bhar
Wo khushiyaan
Bachpan mein jo paate hain
Bachpan mein jo paate hain
Wo hanste huye din
Gaati wo raatein
Laut ke phir nahin aate hain
Laut ke phir nahin aate hain
Ho yaadon ke saaye mein
Waqt beetaanaa hotaa hai
Ke Bachpan har gham se
O bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Janam ka shubh din har din se
Suhaanaa hotaa hai
Ke bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai

Ham dhoondhte hain jeevan bhar

Laut ke phir nahin aate hain

Yaadon ke saaye mein
Waqt bitaanaa hota hai
Ke bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai

Today (10 may 2017) is the third anniversary of passing away of character actor Sudhir (10 May, 2014).

Now the last I had seen him in a movie was in ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’ in 2007 in a blink and miss role. Then we had also seen him in movies like ‘Dulhe Raja’ (1998) in a slightly less brief role with some comic timing thrown in. Prior to this I can remember him in Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Baadshah’ (1999) where also he had some comedy in the situation of his character. In the interim he was also seen in a few television serials. But of course if someone asked me who Sudhir was I can say that he was the smart guy (smarter than Dev Anand if I am allowed to say) in ‘Gambler’ (1971) who sits besides the heroine, Zahida, in the song “Dil Aaj Shaayar Hai Gham Aaj Naghma Hai“. But I had no material at hand to write about Sudhir. For example, I didn’t know where he was from etc. He played characters that were always behind the scenes in many of his movies like ‘Shareef Badmash’ (1973) etc. I checked online and found that his real name was Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria. I also learnt that he is uncle to Milan Luthria who has made a few movies in recent times. Then on further googling I also saw that he had produced a movie or two (according to IMDB.com). It seems he was also an assistant director.  But nothing more that would stand out so I am leaving it to our experts in Atuldom to fill about this character artiste.

[Ed Note: Please see the post for the song “Na Maano To Koi Shikaayat Nahin” from film ‘Ustad 420’ (1969), as well as the comments therein. The comments plus the post provide a fairly detailed bio sketch of the character actor Sudhir.]

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ऐ’
“ऐ जान ए बहारां रूह ए चमन”

Truly vintage Rafi. A song that brings to mind the times and the era of gentle romancing, and the soft songs of love. In the voice of Rafi Sb, these songs carry a heartfelt emotion that conveys a genuine feeling of love. It is a wonder that this song has so far not made it to the blog already.

Missing Films of 1960s – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Hmmm, that is interesting.  As I review the list of missing films for 1962 prepared by Khyati Ben, then starting from ‘Baaje Ghunghroo’ (which was the last film we introduced in the previous segment of this series), I had to drop down to the seventh film below it (in alphabetical order) to reach a film for which songs are available.  After ‘Baaje Ghunghroo’, the films listed are ‘Balidaan’, ‘Bapu Ne Kahaa Tha’, ‘Bijli Chamke Jamuna Paar’, ‘Deccan Queen’, ‘Durga Pooja’ and ‘Fakiron Ki Basti’ – six films for which songs are not traceable.

Here I come again. Seeing how few posts I make these days in the blog, I have become like a guest poster in the blog these days. 🙂
