Today’s song is from the 1974 movie ‘Mehmaan’.

It had Biswajeet, Rekha, Anwar Hussain, Manmohan Krishna, Abhi Bhattacharya, Tarun Bose, Sulochana, Mukri, Bhalla, Lata Sinha, Azad, Gopal Sehgal, Indira Bansal, Mona, Brahm Bharadwaj, Helen, Pratima Devi, Thakurdas, and new discovery Joginder (as debutant).

Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Shatrujit Paul. Its dialogues were written by Rahi Masoom Raza. Editing for this movie was done by Shivaji Avdhoot.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.02.1974.

‘Mehmaan-1974’ had total six songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Ravi. Asha Bhonsle, Deedar Singh Pardesi, Mahendra Kapoor, Meenu Puroshottam and Mohd Rafi gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie made its debut on the blog in 2010 with its first song posted on 01.05.2010. After that its second was posted on 26.04.2012.
But the third song was posted after more than five years gap on 25.10.2017.
Its fourth song got posted in ‘blog ten-year challenge’ on 01.05.2020 as the movie completes its ten year long run on the blog.

Then the sixth song was posted this year on Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth anniversary. This year is the ‘birth centenary celebration year’ of lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi (born on 08.03.1921 – 25.10.1980). On the blog we achieved seven centuries of Sahir Ludhianvi on 08.03.2021.
He is on 700 on the blog since then. The today’s song will be 701st song of Sahir Ludhianvi on the blog.

Here is the list of songs of ‘Mehmaan-1974’ as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Chhod arre jaa mujhe na pakad Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle 01.05.2020
02 Khuley gagan ke neeche panchhi Minoo Purushottam

Today’s song is sung by Minoo Purushottam and on screen, I guess, it is Lata Sinha lip syncing the song. (I have not watched this movie, so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.).

Lyrics for the today’s song are by Sahir Ludhianvi and music is composed by Ravi.

This is the final song from ‘Mehmaan-1974’ and with this song all songs of ‘Mehmaan-1974’ gets covered on the blog and the movie moves to ‘Yippeeee’ club now. 😊

Today (8 march 2021) is the birth anniversary of Sahir Ludhianvi(8 March 1921 – 25 October 1980). Yesterday (7 match 2021) was the remembrance day of Ravi (3 March 1926- 7 March 2012) as well. Together this lyricist-music director pair worked in 19 movies. Out of all music directors that Sahir Ludhianvi worked with, his collaboration with Ravi was the longest. Avinash Scrapwala, during his just concluded Sahir Ludhianvi series of articles, has given a detailed account of this collaboration in this article.

Vast majority of songs that the dou created in HFM have already been covered. We are left with just a few songs of this collaboration that are yet to be covered.

“Mehmaan”(1974) is one of those few movies that offeres us the opportunuty to discuss songs of Sahirv Ludhianvi and Ravi.

“Mehmaan”(1974) was produced by Shatrujit Paul and directed by K P Atma for Shatrujit films, Bombay. The movie had Biswajit, Rekha, Anwar Hussain, Manmohan Krishna, Abhi Bhattacharya, Tarun Bose, Sulochana Latkar, Mukri, B.B.Bhalla, Lata Sinha, Gopal Sehgal, Indira Bansal,Braham Bhardwaj, Pratima devi, Moolchand, Azad, Mona, Thakurdas Chabra, Helen etc. The movie introduced Jogindar aka Joginder Shelly to Hindi movies.

“Mehmaan”(1974) had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Mehmaan”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. It is picturised as a cabarat dance song on Helen. It is also a villain’s den song, with Azaad duly tied up by the villains. One can notice Tarun Bose, Joginder Shelly, Manmohan Krishan and Chinoo Shikaari aka Chinu Rajput also in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 25
—————————————————————————

Today is 1 may 2020, viz the first day of the fifth month of the year 2020.

When I look back on this day ten years ago, I find that three songs were covered that day (1 may 2010). These songs were :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Uff ye Jawaani ye adaa Mehmaan-1974 03 of 06 songs posted
Tumhaari mast nazar gar idhar nahin hoti Dil Hi To Hai-1963 All songs covered
Pyaar to ik din honaa thaa Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati-1969 05 songs posted

So it means that two movies are eligible for “Blog Ten year challenge” today.

One of these two movies is “Mehmaan”(1974).

This movie had six songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the blog. The movie made its debut ibn the blog this day ten years ago !

Here are the three songs of “Mehmaan”(1974) that have been covered so far:-

Song Posted On
Uff ye Jawaani ye adaa 01.05.2010
Meri chaahat rahegi hameshaa jawaan 26.04.2012
Ram Raheem Krishn Kareem … 25.10.2017

I may have discussed three songs from the movie, but these songs were spaced several years apart. Second song from the movie was discussed in 2012 and the third in 2017.

So, despite covering three songs from the movie, I do not remember anything about this movie. So when I watched the song under discussion today, I had some great and inadvertent fun watching the picturisation. I could see a very young Rekha lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice, but who was the gentleman, jumping up and down. He appeared somewhat familiar ! And then it hit me, Arrey, it was Vishwajeet ! He was well past his prime by 1974, but he was still trying to turn the clock back rather valiantly. 🙂

The song starts as a motor boat song. Then the duo shift to a park, where the song becomes a classic running around the trees song- as I S Johar would have described it. 🙂

Then the duo jump over on a jeep. End of the song finds Rekha alighting from the jeep and walking off in a huff, determined not to go back to the jeep. But she quickly has a change of heart when she finds monkeys ahead. 🙂

Lyrics are by Sahir Ludhianvi. Normally known for penning songs espousing the caause of social justice, communal harmony, women emancipation and other such noble causes, Here he is called upon to pen a rather more mundane kind of a song- viz a romantic song. And the lyrics are quite cute. “Chhoona mat mujhe”- is the warning issued by the lady. “royegi jo chhoone waala koi na mila”- is the response. Then she relents and sets the terms that she is agreeable to this “chhoona” business provided it is carried out gently. 🙂

Quite an interesting and fun song, even if much of the fun is inadvertent. This is a song from nearly five decades ago. I have been watching this song and listening to it for the first time in true tubelight fashion. I got to watch this song only because the lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day : 3783 Post No. : 14765

With the advent of talkies in 1931, many new actors joined the Hindi film industry in the 1930s in addition to those who had switched over from silent films. While some actors became successful and remained active in the film industry for a long time, an overwhelming majority of actors could not be sustained for longer period in the film industry. Within this category, there were some actors who became successful in their initial stages of the filmy career, but lost the momentum of success in their later stage. While they remained active in the film industry for reasonable period, they went into oblivion and thus forgotten after the end of their filmy career.

Rama Shukul was one of such actors who despite talent and age on his side could remain active only for a decade or so. Thereafter he made some sporadic appearances films in minor roles for about another decade. Today, he has been forgotten to such an extent that no basic information about him is available on the internet other than his incomplete filmography. Luckily, I could lay my hand on an article written by Hyacinth (pseudo name of Susheela Rani) on Rama Shukul in Filmindia magazine (September 1942) based on her inter-actions with him sometime in 1942. I could also update his filmography and other information from various issues of Filmindia magazines of 1938 to 1949 and thereafter from the website, myswar.co. I also watched his four films – ‘Bhabhi’ (1938), ‘Navjeevan’ (1939), ‘Durga’ (1939) and ‘Aazaad’ (1940) which are available online to get a feel of his acting. I found Rama Shukul to be a natural actor. He looked like a seasoned actor even in his first film ‘Bhabhi’ (1938).

Rama Shukul was born in Jabalpur to Badri Prasad Shukul and Sushila Shukul in a wealthy family. His father was the District Superintendent of Police in Central Province (presently the parts of Madhya Pradesh, Chhatishgarh, Odisha and Maharashtra). Rama Shukul was the only son and therefore was pampered a lot by his father. Whenever his father was transferred, he would take with him Rama Shukul. As a result, his education was affected. He completed his Matriculation and was enrolled in Robertson College, Jabalpur for graduate study. The pampering of his father was such an extent that he gifted a car for his son to travel to the college. The whole idea of his father was to keep Rama Shukul interested in studies. However, he was more interested in sports and acting than the studies.

Rama Shukul was the college champion for three years in a row in tennis and was in the college teams for cricket, hockey and volleyball. In 1935, he participated in the Inter-Collegiate Drama Competition at Banaras Hindu University where he received the trophy for the best actor in the role of Hamlet in the drama. His father wanted to send him to England for ICS or for becoming a barrister. But Rama Shukul could barely complete his Senior Cambridge. Looking at his son’s interest in sports, his father arranged for a job for him as an Assistand Director of Physical Culture in the State at Nagpur. But the young Rama Shukul refused to accept the job saying that he was going to become a film actor. His father lost all hopes of shaping his bright career.

In 1938, Rama Shukul came to Bombay (Mumbai) to pursue an acting career in the films. But to get into the film studios, one must have reference but Rama Shukul did not have any in Mumbai. He had one friend in Mumbai, Fazal Chinoy. His father, Sir Rahimtula Chinoy was the promoter of the Indian Radio Company and the Director of the Imperial Bank of India (now State Bank of India). He was also a former member of the Indian Legislature Assembly. With his influence, Rama Shukul could get an appointment with Sir Richard Temple, the Managing Director of Bombay Talkies.

Sir Richard was impressed with his educational background. He introduced Rama Shukul to Himanshu Rai who agreed to take him as an actor. He signed a contract with Bombay Talkies in September 1938 and made it to ‘Bhabhi’ (1938) as his first film in a villainous role. The film was a box office success. In the film’s review published in ‘Filmindia’, Baburao Patel praised his acting by saying that ‘Rama Shukul is a good addition to the Indian screen. In the role of Anupam – the main obstacle in the whole scheme, he turns out to be a successful nuisance’.

Rama Shukul worked for Bombay Talkies for about 2 years during which time he acted in lead roles with Hansa Wadkar in ‘Navjeevan’ (1939) and with Devika Rani and Hansa Wadkar in ‘Durga’ (1939). In ‘Aazaad’ (1940), though Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis had lead roles, it was Rama Shukul pairing with Hansa Wadkar who had major presence in the film.

When he was to work opposite Devika Rani in his 5th film in Bombay Talkies, Himanshu Rai died. His death was a great shock to Rama Shukul due to his personal attachment. He was regarded as a blue-eyed boy of Himanshu Rai. Many in the Bombay Talkies had developed dislike for him as they felt that he was pampered by the boss of the Bombay Talkies. In this milieu, Rama Shukul could not continue in the Bombay Talkies for long.

His next destination was Ranjit Movietone where he acted in the second lead role in ‘Iqraar’(1942). This was followed by ‘Mehmaan’ (1942), ‘Fariyaad’ (1942) and ‘Dukh Sukh’ (1942). However, none of these films made much impact on the box office front. From 1943, he became a free-lance artist and acted in the second lead in Ramnik Productions’ ‘Dulhan’ (1943), ‘Kiran’ (1944), and ‘Gaon Ki Gori’ (1945).

By this time, his status as an actor seems to have come down from second lead actor to one among the supporting actors. In this category, he worked in Filmistan’s ‘Eight Days’ (1946) and ‘Shikari’ (1946). This was followed by ‘Mulaaqat’ (1947), ‘Shikaayat’ (1948) and ‘Meherbaani’ (1950).

After 1950, the filmy assignments of Rama Shukul seem to have dwindled significantly. His name started appearing in ‘other actors’ like in ‘Shamsheer’ (1953), ‘Sardaar’ (1955) and ‘Sitaaron Se Aage’ (1958). ‘Madhu’ (1959) was Rama Shukul’s last film as an actor when he may be around 45 years of age. I could not get any information as to how he spent rest of his life after 1959.

Despite being recognised as one of the fine actors of the 1940s, Rama Shukul had an active filmy career of about 10 years (1938-48). During his entire career, he acted in 20 films.

I am presenting ‘zara dheere ho zara dheere’ from ‘Mehmaan’ (1942) sung by Shamim Bano and Rama Shukul. The song is written by Pandit Indra and is set to music by Khemchand Prakash. This duet is actor-singer songs and is the 5th song to appear in the Blog.

Although HFGK credits the male voice in the song to Rama Shukul, in my view, it may not be his voice when I compare his voice in the songs in ‘Navjeevan’ (1939) and ‘Durga’ (1939). My hunch is that the male voice in this song may be of Bulo C Rani based on his rendition of ‘rootthna pyaar mein karwat ka badal jaana hai’ from the same film. I request the opinions from the experts on my presumption.

For the time being, however, I have retained the name of Rama Shukul as the male singer in the video caption of the song.

I find this song a sweet expression of love.

Today, 25th of October 2017, is the thirty seventh ‘remembrance anniversary’ of the great ‘poet-lyricist’ Sahir Ludhianvi. He passed away this day in 1980 leaving behind the great legacy of his poems and leaving behind his immortal poetry which people are still enjoying, discussing, and even doing research on it and writing about his life and his poetry. And like me there will be many who will agree that Sahir and his poetry will be discussed as long as Hindi Cinema and HFM exists and his poetry will be discussed so long as humanity and human relations, emotions exists.

I did not have much idea about the film ‘Mehmaan’ (1953) except its star cast. But I have been mesmerised by its 8 melodious songs, two of which have so far been covered in the Blog. The film was directed by Ramanand Sagar, his first film as a director. The star cast included Premnath, Nimmi, Sajjan, Purnima, Radhakishan, Bikram Kapoor, Harish, Mumtaz Begum etc. With Nimmi in the lead role, one would expect a lot of melodrama, sufferings, unexpected twists in the love story etc.

I am writing this article only because I felt that the song which I listened to today after a gap of over 45 years deserves to be represented in the Blog. In fact, I am wondering how this song escaped my attention for this long. I am equally surprised at the fact that this song has managed to stay un discussed in the Blog till now.
