This Week, That Year – 5
———————————–
09May – 15May, 2011

It has been a long gap. The previous post in this series had come on 23rd Sep, 2020. And the post number was 15911. About seven and a half month’s worth of waterflow has passed under all the bridges. That was 231 days ago. And 450 posts ago. The blog has clocked four more century milestones, and is close to a fifth now.

An understatement it is – that life has changed in these past months. A lot of ideas and motivation for writing has been numbed. Even with the time and inclination both pointing in the right directions, the flow of writing is simply not coming together. Every week for the past 5 or 6 weeks, I scrutinize the 10 year challenge lists. Ideas form in the mind, but somehow do not get on to paper. For this week’s analysis and this post, I have been checking on the week status from a decade ago, for past couple of days. And then today, just decided to start off with this inability to articulate. Let’s see where it will lead to.

Maybe start with numbers. The week that was – 9th to 15th May of 2011. We saw two dot days that week – 11th and 13th May. Something was in the air during those days. Between April and May of that year, we see 10 dot days, that do not seem customary. We had 28 songs posted in that week, and given two dot days, the average productivity would be approximately 5.6 posts per day.

The 28 songs belonged to 27 different films, and only one film made a repeat appearance that week – the film ‘Pugree’ of 1948.

Considering the decades – the thirties and seventies had just one song present. In between we had 8 songs for the 1940s, 11 songs for the 1950s and 7 songs for the 1960s.

The week saw 5 debut films come on board. And the film ‘Parasmani’ of 1963 completed its run and made the Yippeee status. Of the 27 films that got featured that week, a whopping 19 films have since been Yippeee’d over the past decade. And 8 films are still awaiting more songs to complete their run on our blog. All the films have between 2 to 5 songs pending, which means none of them is one song away from being Yippeee’d.

Coming to milestones, the week saw the century milestone for music director Anil Biswas. On 10th May, with the song “Paise Ka Mantar Paise Ka Jantar“, from the 1956 film ‘Paisa Hi Paisa’, Anil Biswas clocked his first 100 songs posted on our blog.

The day by day break up and details of posts on daily basis is given in the table below.

Ten years ago, this day six songs were posted from six films. Of the six films, the following four have since been Yippeee’d – ‘Pugree’ (1948), ‘Faraar’ (1965), ‘Uski Kahaani’ (1966) and ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’ (1973). The two pending films are ‘Chaalis Din’ (1959) and ‘Namaste Ji’ (1965). For today’s post, I have picked this fun wooing song in the voice of Rafi Sb from the film ‘Namaste Ji’.

This film has an interesting background, from a collector’s perspective. For almost two decades, this film has been on the fringe of becoming available in public domain. There are collectors who have been declaring the availability of this film with tantalizing promises of making it available ‘shortly’. But that shortly has never really materialized. To the extent that there are folks who have uploaded doctored videos, i.e. songs of this film overlaid on a video sequence of another film with the same lead actors. Ah yes, we do see many an example of such shady presentations. And to tell you – the world is so full of believers, that the comment sections of such uploads contains profuse thanks for being able to see the video clip of the song. There are rare comments that point out this insidious jugglery, but such statements of accusatory truth are lost in the bevy of praises.

One of my very close and dear friends, has shown me photographs of the library shelves of another collector in Bombay, where the Betamax tape of this film, ‘Namaste Ji’ is very much visible. But no, we have had no success in being able to view or acquire this film. And so we are also not 100% certain that the titles that are sitting in the library of this other collector, whether these just blanks, to impress others. Do not know. This, and actually many other titles, have been doing rounds of collector circles and communications – that they are imminent to be released to public domain shortly.

Another very interesting variation to this scenario is the case where the original film has been dubbed into another language. Case in point is the film ‘Qaidi’ from 1957, very well known for its musical score by OP Nayyar. Now this film, as many others, was later dubbed into Tamil and other south Indian languages. The current scenario with this film is that the Hindi original of this film is not available (yet) in public domain. However the Tamil version is very much available in public domain. Some technically astute and enterprising collector has picked the video sequence from the Tamil version and has overlaid the audio of the song in Hindi. He has posted a couple of such ‘manufactured’ videos with the claim that they are the original and that he has the full film in original Hindi. After much explorations and discussions, it has been determined that the claim is spurious.

A very enticing and also tormenting situation is when actually we have real and true clips of songs and short video sequences posted online, but the entire film is simply not surfacing anywhere. Years have passed in waiting but simply no word of real existence has surfaced. Maybe I shall take this up in another post – it is getting very lengthy.

So back to ‘Namaste Ji’. The film has been produced under the banner of DM Films, Bombay (now Mumbai) and is directed by Daljeet Krishan. Is Daljeet the ‘D’ in the banner name? Not sure. The star cast as per the Geet Kosh is Ameeta, Mehmood, IS Johar, Nalini Chonkar, Ulhas, Manorama, Mridula, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Baij Sharma, Brahmdutt, Helen, Sumita, Arti, Manjula, Vinod, Ramesh, Ajeet, Meena, Baijnath, and Nazeer.

The film has 8 songs listed. The music boasts of such all time favorites as “Mere Do Naina Matwaale Kis Ke Liye“, “Bahaaron Thaam Lo Ab Dil Mera Mehboob Aata Hai“, and “Hamen Kya Jo Har Su Ujaale Huyen Hain”. Interesting to note that so far 4 songs of this film have made their appearance on the blog. Three of them appeared in 2011, the fourth came on board in 2014. And then, a long radio silence. Yes, the fifth song makes its appearance today, after a gap of seven years.

The music composition is by GS Kohli and the song writing is shared between Anjaan and Anand Bakshi. However sadly, the song being presented today has no lyricist identified for it. Could this be a traditional or a folk song that has been reused? Yes, quite possible, from the sound of it. The language of the song sounds like Awadhi or Bhojpuri, and so it could be folk song that has been brought into this film. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please comment on this observation.

From the rendering of this song, it may be not wrong to surmise that this song is picturized on Mehmood. It sounds similar in rural tones, to some other songs that Mehmood had performed on screen, e.g. the song “Pipra Ke Patwa Sareekhe Doley Manwa” from the 1963 film ‘Godaan’.

So, wrapping up today’s write up, with a forlorn hope that this film shall make its appearance in the public domain, sooner than later.

Let us see.

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 5
———————————————————

Welcome all to today’s post which is coming after a long gap of more than two years. In this series we discussed song by ‘Pancham-Rafi’ jodi. This series was basically inspired by an article on the blog ‘Pancham and Only Pancham’ – and the title of the article is ‘Tribute to Rafi Sahab on 28th Death Anniversary‘, published on Rafi Sb’s twenty-eighth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ on 31.07.2008. This article lists out the ‘variety of songs by the genius -Pancham-Rafi’ jodi based on different ‘genres’ of music.

When I came across the above article I thought to share this list with readers on our blog too. So, when I started this series in ‘2015’ with this song – “Jaag Devta Naag Devta – nine out of the twenty songs listed in the article were already posted on the blog. After that, I shared three more songs viz. – “Raqqaasa Mera Naam, Ae Sahib Sabko Salaam“, “Maine Kab Chaaha Ke Dulha Banoonga” and “Maakhan Chor Nandkishore Manmohan Ghanshyam Re“. The remaining songs were shared by our team members from time to time, and all these twenty songs are on the blog now.

Readers can go through the list in the article mentioned above. As the songs in this list were already getting posted on the blog, I had in the post for the song “Maine Kab Chaaha Ke Dulha Banoonga” mentioned that I will include some more songs in this series, not on the basis of music-genres, but these ‘special songs’ are from the category of being ‘the only Rafi song in a movie where music was composed by RD Burman.

Today’s song is one such song and it is from the movie ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980).

This film was directed by Danny Dengzongpa for Prithvi Pictures, Bombay. The star cast includes Rajesh Khanna, Kim (new discovery), Shashikala, AK Hangal, Suresh Oberoi, Lalita Pawar, Tamanna, Aruna Irani, Danny Dengzongpa, Om Shivpuri, Shobha Khote, Jagdeep, Mukri, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Madhu Malhotra, Shashi Kiran, Manmauji, Prakash, Lalita Kumari, Brahm Bharadwaj, Ranjeet Sood, Jugnu, Chand Usmani, Moolchand, Gopal Saigal, Master Chirag and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.08.1980 with restricted viewing (Adults Only) certificate.

This movie had six songs, all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed to music by RD Burman. Here is the list of the songs of this movie,

Today’s song, the only Rafi song, in this movie is lip-synced on screen by actor Jagdeep.

Today 29th March 2021 is eighty-second birth anniversary (born on 29.03.1939) of actor Jagdeep. He passed away last year on 08th July 2020. As a tribute to him we will listen and enjoy this entertaining song from this movie. The song is ‘joie-de-vivre’ where other than Jagdeep we can see Mohan Choti, Bhagwan, Mukri, Birbal, Gopal Saigal and others also performing with him.

Also wishing herewith is ‘Happy Holi’ to all. Though the song is not a ‘holi’ song but ‘holi’ celebrations can be enjoyed this year ‘in house’ only – with playing this song and ‘taking a jig’ on this vibrant Pancham composition.

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 3
———————————–————––———

Sar jo tera chakraaye, Ya dil dooba jaaye
Aa jaa pyaare paas hamaare, Kaahe ghabraaye
Kaahe ghabraaye. . .

Ae dil hai mushkil jeena yahaan
Zara hatt ke zara bach ke
Yeh hai bombay meri jaan. . .

Jaane kahan mera jigar gaya ji
Abhi abhi yahi thha kidhar gayaa ji. . .

Gareeb jaan ke hum ko na tum mita dena
Tumhin ne dard diya hai tumhi dawaa denaa

Just to list a few of the famous Rafi solos and duets for Johny Walker.

This series is about collaborations and team work by Rafi Sahab for various artists, mainly with composers, singers and lyricists.  But since the song I stumbled upon is too good, atypical rendition by Rafi Sahab for Johnny Walker, as we know the veteran comic actor.  So I have included this in the series.

In the list of Rafi Sahab’s songs I counted around 125 songs of Johnny Walker.   This blog already has 136 songs listed as filmed on Johnny Walker songs. The readers can view the list here.

Some of these are by other singers like Mannadey or Mahendra Kapoor etc., but they should be very few, so what I have found is possibly one of the very few around 5-10 Rafi songs actually sung on screen by Johnny Walker remaining to be posted.

‘Ghulam Begum Baadshah’ is a 1956 film produced under the banner of Niagra Films, Bombay and is directed by Jugal Kishore. The star cast of the film is listed as Sheela Ramani, Daljeet, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Altaf, Nishi, Sadiq, Paras, Khairati, Malika, R Nath, Jogendra, Preetam, Dilip Bamblaheri, Wajid Ali, Bhanesh Kumar, Shivji Bhai, Chand, Kamaldeep, Rajpuri, Prakash, and Johnny Walker

The film has six songs written by four lyricists – Indeewar, Roopbani, Shyam Hindi and Shaukat Pardesi. This song is written by Roopbani. The film’s music is composed by Sudipta Bhattacharya. Four out of six songs of this film are posted in the blog :

Aaj Hai Mujhko Khushi Jhoomti Hai Zindagi
Dil Hai Ye Tera Dil Tu Liye Jaa
Dil Se Mere Dil Mila
Jannat Ki Hoor Hoon Dil Ka Suroor Hoon

The tally of the lyricist and the music director in our blog, as per the stats page is as follows:

Sudipta Bhattacharya 6
Roopbani 19

Going by the above Sudipta Bhattacharya, was not a one film wonder and he has composed the music for at least two Hindi films or may be some non-film songs.  This is a rare qawwali by a Bengali music director, discounting the excellent filmy qawwaliyan composed by RD Burman.

Such is the beauty of 50’s Rafi songs, and this song has the added attraction is being specifically sung for Johnny Walker.  As a composition also I must say it is top-notch.  It could have been the run of the mill, funny, chhed-chhad qawwali, but it is not so.  The sense of timing of Johnny Walker and Rafi sahab’s spirited enjoyment of performing and singing is a highlight.

One can imagine the amount of time and hard work in the creation of this and the many  rehearsals etc that must have been gone into creating this song.

The more times I see and hear this song, I am sure whoever is reading the post is going to see this song multiple times.  Truly, it is so perfectly synchronised, composed, written, sung, performed and edited song.

Geeta Dutt – Solos and Duets (04)
———————————–————–

Here is a duet again by Geeta Dutt and Rafi Sahab as song no. 04 of the series. I shall try not to make this series of Raft-Geeta duets songs with every other song by them. No worries there I have a few interesting combination duets and truets lined up for this series and I can be forgiven if it is interspersed with a few of those gems by this jodi.  The more popular ones by the likes of OPN and SDB are already in the blog, among the remaining are by music directors who are lesser known.

The songs in the genre ‘chhed chhaad’ theme and light romanticism by Rafi-Geeta Dutt are well known.  The present song is on the same theme, but a not heard before song.  Vividh Bharati Mumbai was never playing it in the 80’s that much I can say for sure.  The days of listening to songs on Vividh Bharati are a memory, which I was reminded of today.  I visited a deserted a fruit/vegetable market in our area in the middle of the afternoon, when returning from an errand.  A few sleepy vendors were there with their wares open for sale.  A few of them were huddled around on one of the carts, having lunch or just doing gup-shup.  Interesting thing with the scene was the radio playing and an old song well remembered from the radio days was playing.  It was a duet of Mukesh and the words were philosophical and romantic, I recognized the song with the stanza and lyrics were coming to mind as sure as the clockwork.  I came home and meant to look up the song, as it was not heard for a long time.  It was somewhat like “Bol Meri Taqdeer Mein Kya Hai” from ‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’ (1962), but some other song.  Now it has slipped from the mind and I am hoping to hear it again somewhere and revisiting the melody.

This line in the first stanza “le le tu sitaaron se gawaahi” is as if it is somewhere else or in some other song I have heard, especially the word ‘gawaahi’ and the way Rafi Sahab is intoning it sounds as if I have heard it somewhere before also.  ‘gawaahi’ is not a very common word in film songs.  There is a song in ‘Daamini’ which goes “Gawaah Hain Chaand Taare Gawaah Hain”.    Also, the composition and music sound very much like OPN style.  And hearing some sounds in the background music, I think it can even be a ‘tonga song’.

Only one song from the film ‘Khiladi’ (1961) is posted in the blog – “Ho Gori Kaabur Aur Bukhaara“. Music composer is Sardul Kwatra and lyricist is Prem Dhawan as per the info in the excel sheet of Rafi songs.  The excel sheet shows only the present song from this film and the song already posted in the blog, a Rafi-Shamshad duet is missing in the list.  Myswar.com is not showing the film at all.  So, I had to refer to the excel sheet for lyricist’s name.  Listening to both the songs now, it is clear that both songs are filmed on different characters in the film.  Not just by the change of female singer, but also by the sound of Rafi Sahab’s voice.  Excel sheet made up with the help of geetkosh is listing only one Rafi song in this film, and now the blog has two such duets.  So, it is possible that there are more songs in the film, which were not recorded in the geetkosh even.  Only someone with the 60’s decade HFGK can ascertain this.  If this goes on like this, given a few more accidental discoveries, final list of Rafi songs is going to be around 5000, kheench khaanch kar :).  There is a very good chance that this blog will be the place where the record is most accurate in terms of number of songs sung by Rafi Sahab, and others artists also.

Rafi sahab is a little subdued here, in the sense, that he is not making many ‘harkaten’ or ‘murkiyaan’ etc like Geeta Dutt is doing.   Or rather trying his best to sound restrained, to suit the character in the film, maybe.  But it is a very melodious and hummable song and sounds too good.

I can’t get the sound of ‘gawaahi’ out of my head since I heard this song again and again while writing the post just now.  This is how much the obscure films and their songs are made memorable by the commitment of singers like Geeta Dutt and Rafi Sahab, who always gave 110 % to each and every song.

Song – Hato Hato Jaao Ji Jaao, Jhoothi Baaten e Na Banaao (Khiladi) (1961) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Sardool Kwatra

Lyrics 

hato hato

le le tu sitaaron se gawaahi
hum bhi to tere liye

hum ko bhi neend na aayi
arey karo na guroor
yoon na raho door door

yoon na raho door door
aur na dil ko jalaao
haay haay

milte hi tujh se nigaahen
jab jab bhi

sunti hoon teri hi sadaayen
aankhon ka ho noor
mere dil ka suroor

ab to na aankh churaao
aay haay
hato hato
jaao ji jaao
o jhooti baatien en

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 20
—————————————————————

25/10/2020 – Remembrance Day of Sahir Ludhianvi 

Koyi shaayar ta’aaruf ka mohtaaj ho saktaa hai lekin uss ki shaayari kisi ta’aaruf ki mohtaaj nahi honi chaahiye, chaahe wo shaayari doosri zubaan mein tarjuma shudaa hi kyun na ho”.

So began the article published in the Urdu magazine ‘Fann Aur Shakhsiyat’ (Sahir number), dated 22nd July 1958, written by Khwaaja Ahmed Abbas.

Sahir. . . ba-zubaan e khud
(Answering a question asked by Nida Fazli)

I am the youngest among my contemporaries except Kaifi considering my age. Faiz, Sardar, Niyaaz all are senior.  When Majaz’s ‘Aahang’ was published I was a student in Matric (Xth std) and at the time of publication of Faiz’s collection I was studying in BA. There are really effects of Faiz in some of my poems. Majaaz is more classical, which I like. Maybe it is more impressive in ‘Chaklay’. Every poet is impressed by his senior poets. But there is a difference in vinegar and its affects. Many of my poems tackle different topics like, Taj Mahal, chakla, avoidance (garez), and beautiful turn (khoobsurat mod) etc. No one’s 100% and perfect. In Faiz’s work there are more of comparisons (Anthropomorphization). The adjectives in my poems create an atmosphere. The personality of the poet also has an impact on his art and expression. There is an inner circle, the subject and vivid representation takes shape accordingly. By nature I belong to the middle class. Maybe I have still not managed to de-class myself. Years ago my poems were heard silently among the labourers.  But Kaifi would generate more claps. Some people have an opinion that Sahir is more liked the college going boys and girl, this is poetry of an immature brain. But I do doubt the maturity of brains of the people who think like this. I am product of this very circumstances and it is natural to be affected by it. But the poetry’s subjects and their treatment is also bound to change with the age of the poet, as in our times Hafeez and A’dam were very popular among elderly poets. We used to take part is these Mushaa’ire, recited our poems which were well liked by all. Firaaq says this even today that “Mushaa’iron ke ticket to Sahir ke naam par hi bikte hain”.

I know there are very few people who understand Urdu and fewer are interested in it in India. But the revived interest in Urdu poetry, contemporary as well as some poets belonging to the earlier generations, and other literary works, which is raising its head frequently, is heartening. Urdu poetry in itself is a strong statement. It is very important and significant in the 21st century and new millennia also, as it was in 19th and 20th centuries.

And Sahir is a big part of this strong statement. For his content and creative flexibility. There may be a way of looking at his poetry apart from his roots in leftist ideology.  I don’t think he died with, as strong sense of his ideology as he began his active poetic life.

I am fascinated by the impact of Allama Iqbal on his poetry.  He wrote this in early 40’s :

ye kooche ye neelaam ghar dilkashi ke
ye lut’te huye caaravan zindagi ke
kahaan hain, kahan hain, muhafiz khudi ke
sana-khwaan-e-taqdees-e-mashriq kahan hain

Very few poets have used the word ‘khudi’ after Iqbal so immediately after him.  In fact the philosophy of ‘khudi’ is the inherent identity of Iqbal’s literary and poetic work.  Here if Sahir is speaking of ‘khudi’ it must be a reference to glorification and paeans of the civilizational progress of the ‘mashriq’ sung by Iqbal.   The question by Sahir is still valid, as it was 80 years ago.  The question is much bigger than ever, exactly when and how much more, the personal integrity, conscience of each one of us singing praises of cultural, civilizational and religious values are going to go and face this shameful reality.

Allama Iqbal left this world in 1939.  For the impressionable youth, a rebellious one like Sahir, the impressive content and complete logical values in Iqbal’s considerable poetic output, could have felt like the shackles.  So he hits out, at the reality of society, more in self-defence to stop his own slide into the spirituality.  He wants to stay in the realm of the material and spirituality seems like a cave to him, with no way out.

But it is a fact that he ventured into the cave, with a parody too :

cheen-o-arab hamaara, hindostaan hamaara
muslim hain ham watan hai saara jahan hamaara

Bringing it down to the basic issues of survival with:

Cheen-o-arab hamaara, hindostan hamaara
Rehne ko ghar nahin hai, saara jahan hamaara

He takes this She’r of Iqbal ;

Na tu zameen ke liye hai na aasmaan ke liye
Jahaan hai tere liye tu nahin jahaan ke liye

And makes it;

Na tu zameen ke liye hai na aasmaan ke liye
Tera wajood hai ab sirf daastaan ke liye

He does satire, demoralise and ridicule the concept of humans being the supreme creation, and degenerates it.  Not that he has any answers or solutions to the angst expressed in “jinhen naaz hai hind par. . .”.   How the ideology he wore on his sleeve, must have been time and again, weighed against the religiosity and convictions of Iqbal.  He challenges Iqbal’s concepts and thrives on it.

tere ishq ki intehaa chaahta hoon
meri saadgi dekh kya chaahta hoon

He takes the above ghazal of Iqbal and writes this as college bait-baazi song “Tere Pyaar Ka Aasra Chaahta Hoon“.

In relation to the saga called ‘chaklay’, I am reproducing a portion of the article ‘Sahir aur Us ki Sha’iri’, by Kaifi Azmi, originally published in 1948, in ‘Naye Adab Ke Ma’emaar’ (‘Ma’emaar’ – builders or constructors, derived from ta’ameer or ‘imaarat’):

The hapless and hungry nation in reverence towards which glorious paeans are sung with closed eyes, houses brothels at every step. Hence brothels are entrenched in Indian literature too.

The rank intensity, hatred and sincerity with which saahir has shaken up the ‘sanakhwan-e-tasdeeq-e-mashriq’ are simply incomparable.

In ‘chaklay’ (brothels), Sahir’s dignity, his soul and the restlessness of his conscience can be seen at the acme of eminence; I get goose bumps when I read this poem.  The feelings that might have stimulated him to write it are so intense that here his characteristic melancholy transforms into an overwhelming deluge.

[Source – ‘Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai’, selected and translated by Yasir Abbasi].

One wonders if Sahir ever gave a thought to Rafi sahab’s rendition of the songs of ‘Pyasa’, as he got into a controversy over credit and remuneration. It is 40 years since both of them left the temporary abode called life. We are into 100th year of Sahir and no closer to finding the reply to his call. . .

sana-khwaan-e-taqdees-e-mashriq ko laao
sana-khwaan-e-taqdees-e-mashriq kahan hain

I wonder if any literary work of this world, or any research paper is there, that offers solutions, shows the way out, of this socio-economic problem.  But it is a sad state of affairs that this civilization has ceased to view this as a degenerating parasite of a problem in society.  It exists only in Sahir’s poetry as an issue.

I am presenting a Rafi song on this occasion. This is a solo song written by Sahir Ludhianvi for the film ‘Naach Ghar’ (1959).  N Datta is the composer for this film. The song is a prayer, banjaara song, and overlay of a mujra.  As if the mujra is going on and the viewer is singing the song.  I can only guess at it as the video is not available.  The rendition by Rafi Sahab is again out of this world, especially the starting one minute, before the mujra part begins.  I am at a loss, ke sahir ki baat karun ya Rafi ki.

The movie ‘Naach Ghar’ has 10 songs with Rafi being the only male singer, singing four duets with Lata Mangeshkar, one with Asha Bhosle and one with Geeta Dutt.  The only solo song by Rafi in this film the present post.  I had never heard this song before March 2020, when I decided to post this as the birthday post for Sahir’s birth anniversary.  But since it could not be posted, I have revised the post for the death anniversary.

This is the 20th song in the series of ‘Mohammed Rafi – The Incomparable (II)’.   The first two differing portions of the song are too brief; one wants them to go on and on.  But the song moves on to beyond the dance music to chhed-chhaad mode, romantic and pardesi.  3:15 duration is too short to pack so much, and it ends too soon.  Only the audio is available of the song which is picturized on Gopi Krishna.  This could be a stage song or road-side tamasha song.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 102 # In Remembrance – Jaikishan #
————————————————————————————

Today 12th Sep 2020 is forty-ninth remembrance day of the genius music director Jaikishan of Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

Jaikishan was born on 04th November 1929 at Vansda (in Navsari district, Gujarat) and passed away on 12th September 1971 at Bombay (now Mumbai, Maharashtra). He was only 41 when he passed away and his death shook the entire film industry then.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the 1971 movie – ‘Yaar Mera’. One song from this movie – “Dil Ki Kitaab Kori Hai, Kori Hi Rehne Do” – has already been presented on the blog by Sudhir ji on 13th Sep’2013 with a heartfelt tribute to Jaikishan remembering him on his 42nd remembrance anniversary. Today we will listen another song from the same movie.

‘Yaar Mera’ was released after Jaikishan’s death and the movie was dedicated to his memory. The movie begins with this ‘couplet’. I am unable to identify the voice uttering these words, which plays in the background of the dedication title.

jo shaam savere miltaa thha
phoolon ki tarah se khiltaa thha,
aye maut, tujhe maut aa jaaye
kyon yaar ko mere chheen liyaa

Shankar Jaikishan ruled the music charts in 1971 with their “Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhaana” ranking top of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list. In 1971 from the total 115 released movies, Shankar Jaikishan had composed music for as many as seventeen movies plus the un-released movie ‘Bombay Talkie’ making it to total eighteen movies. Here is the list of movies where Shankar-Jaikishan composed the music and that were released (or passed by Censor Board) in 1971,

 

S No Movie Passed by Censor Board on Lyricist/s
01 Albelaa 14.10.1971 Hasrat Jaipuri

17 Yaar Mera 29.11.1971 Hasrat Jaipuri, Neeraj, SH Bihari
18 Bombay Talkie (UR) 19.02.1971 Hasrat Jaipuri, Usha Iyyer

Other than songs of ‘Andaaz’ (two songs), the songs of ‘Main Sundar Hoon’ (also two songs) made it to the list of annual Binaca Geetmala of 1971 from the above list of movies. And that can explain how tough the competition was that year.

The song “Dil Ki Kitaab Kori Hai. . .“was the only popular song from the today’s movie and it was frequently heard on radio during that time. As mentioned above this song has already been posted on the blog.

The film was directed by Atmaram for RS Productions, Bombay. Raja Ram and Satish Wagle were the producers of this movie and Jayendra Pandya was the Associate Producer of this movie. Story of this movie was written by Anand Dutta. Dialogues and screenplay of this movie were written by Abrar Alvi. Editing for this movie was done by YG Chowhan, and he was assisted by EG Shinde and DB Rana. CR Panchal was the controller of production of this movie.

The star cast of the film includes Jeetendra, Rakhee, Nazima, Helen, Paintal, Achala Sachdev, Jayant, Sajjan, Randhir, Murad, Sulochana Sr., Nana Palsikar, Radheshyam, Narbada Shankar, Krishan Dhawan, Manmohan, Raj, Darshan, MS Mehta, Fordil, A Kumar, Ram Sindhi, Mona, and Ashok Bhalla.

This movie has five songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri (two songs), Neeraj (two songs) and SH Bihari (one song). Music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur and Manna Dey are the playback singers for this movie.

Coming to today’s song, although a lesser heard song, I think it was also played intermittently on radio during those times and later on. This song is sung by Mohd Rafi and lyrics are by Neeraj. An entertaining remembrance which was lying noted since more than seven years now.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song. On screen Jeetendra is performing the song. Also seen in the picturization of the song is Manmohan and Paintal and many others…

Blog Day :

4438 Post No. : 15879

Some years back, I recall having seen for the first time on the internet the photo features of Hindi film stars such as Madhubala, Nalini Jaywant and Begum Para in ‘Life’ magazine. These photographs were taken by the magazine’s well known photographer, James Burke in 1951 who was posted in India.  From the standard of 1951, these photographs would have ranked as bold. But one more actress also featured in that magazine – the featured photos were bolder than those of the stars I mentioned earlier. Subsequently, I had also seen her images appearing in ‘Filmindia’ magazines of 1948 and 1949. The actress in the photoshoot of 1951 was Mohana Cabral.

Today, September 11th is the 30th Remembrance Day of Mohana Cabral who died of heart attack this day of the year 1990 in France where she had been staying with her husband and daughter since 1986.

Mohana Cabral (03/02/1929 – 11/09/1990) whose real name was Mona Cabral, was born in Socorro in Bardez taluqa of North Goa in Konkani speaking Christian family. In early 1930s, the family shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) when her father changed his job to Bombay-based Hindustan Construction Company. Mohana did her initial schooling at Victoria High School in Mahim. Later. she was put in a boarding school in Pune where she completed her high school.  In Pune, she joined as a telephone operator in a telephone company. It is through connecting the long distance telephone calls that Mohana got acquainted with some of the film stars of that time including Nargis, Begum Para and Pratima Dasgupta.

Mohana got introduced to Kishore Sahu who offered her a role in his film ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949) which was her debut film though ‘Aag’ (1948) was released first without her name being accredited in the film.  Kishore Sahu changed her name from Mona to screen name, Mohana which got attached with her during the rest of her life not only in films but also in the Konkani plays and singing career.

Sometime in 1948, Mohana got involved with Konkani ‘Tiatr’ in Mumbai. (‘Tiatr’ is a Portuguese word used in Goa for ‘theatre’ for the Konkani dramas encompassing music, dance, and singing. In a way, it is akin to Marathi ‘Sangeet Natak or musical dramas). Her debut Konkani drama was ‘Cortub Avoichem’ (1948) which was directed by the pioneer of Goan Konkani Tiatr, C Alvares, the producer, director, actor, song writer and the singer. In fact, Alvares was instrumental in encouraging girls to play the female roles in his dramas and introduced Mohana and her younger sister, Ophelia. In 1952, Mohana got actively involved with Konkani tiatr in Mumbai, mostly collaborating with C Alvares as an actor-singer and worked in about a dozen plays. Both the sisters were actor-singers in Konkani Tiatr in Mumbai and later in Goa. In fact, in Goa, Mohana is known more as a tiatrist than the Hindi film actress.

In 1951, Mohana met Edward Downing, a Royal Indian Air Force pilot in a hotel where the shooting of her film ‘Sansaar’ (1951) was in progress. They got married in 1951 and had a son, Mark. Unfortunately, her husband died in a plane accident in less than two years of their marriage. In 1955, Mohana got married for the second time with John D’frates who was working for the United Nations and got posted at Beirut.  With this posting, Mohana bid adieu to Hindi film industry. Her last shoot was for the film, ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

In Beirut, Mohana learnt Arabic and began producing dance programmes for Television. She also acted in a couple of dramas on Television. After spending many years in Beirut, her husband got posting in Vienna from where he retired in 1986. Post retirement, Mohana and her family settled in France. Mohana was very much interested in Goan Konkani Tiatr. She would regularly visit India on holidays and act in Konkani dramas in Goa. During the period of her visits, she had also cut a few discs of her non-filmy Konkani songs, some with her mentor, C Alvares.

Mohana died of a heart-attack in France on September 11, 1990 when she was 61. [Thanks for the inputs from Shishir Sharma’s Blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ on Mohana posted on May 13, 2015 and an article in ‘The Navhind Times, Panaji, Goa dated April 6, 2020].

It is interesting to note from her filmography that how quickly Mohana established herself in Hindi film industry. In ‘Aag’ (1948), she had one song role though her first debut film was ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949). In 1949, she had acted in as many as 6 films. 1950 was a blank year for her as probably she got associated with Konkani plays in Mumbai. In 1951 and 1952 she did 5 films each. 1953 and 1954 was again lean years for her. In 1955, she did 4 films before quitting the film industry. In all, she acted in 26 films in her short span of 6 years in the film industry. The full filmography of Mohana is given below:

1948: Aag.
1949: Chaar Din, Jagriti, Kamal, Patanga, Rimjhim, Saawan Aaya Re.
1951: Adaa, Naadaan, Nageena, Sagaai, Sansaar.
1952: Aashiana, Chham Chhama Chham, Najaria, Saloni, Saaqi.
1953: Shole.
1954: Danka, Dost, Shart.
1955: Insaaniyat, Marine Drive, Sau Ka Note, Teerandaz.
1956: Taksaal.

I had noticed in the advertisements of films for which she worked in 1949-50 that  her name was written either in bold or capital letters. That shows that Mohana was popular among the audience of that time and her name mattered for the success of the films. In most of her films, she got roles of a ‘side kick’ to the comedians like Gope, Agha and as a singer-dancer.  Her popularity can be gauged from the fact that in most of her films, Mohana will have at least one song picturised on her. Some of the songs picturised on her for which video clips are available for watching are listed below:

Raat ko ji haay raat ko ji chamke taare – ‘Aag’ (1948)

Pyaar ke jahaan ki niraali sarkaar hai – ‘Patanga’ (1949)

My my my my my dear – ‘Nageena’ (1951)

O baabu kaise dil karoon qaaboo – ‘Sagaai’ (1951)

Lucknow chalo ab raani – ‘Sansaar’ (1951)

Haseena sambhal sambhal ke chal – ‘Saaqi’ (1952)

O madam do se ho gaye ek ham – ‘Aashiana’ (1952)

Dil mera hai deewaana – ‘Shart’ (1954)

Mohana has also rendered two songs on herself in the film ‘Rimjhim’ (1949).

On the occasion of Mohana’s 30th Remembrance Day, I present a song “Aisi Nainwa Ki Laagi Kataar” from ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955) rendered by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle. The song is written by Rajinder Krishan which is set to music by C Ramchandra. The song is picturised on Mohana as a part of a ploy to wood wink a soldier to stripe out his uniform to be used for disguising Mangal (Dilip Kumar) as soldier to gain access to the prison to facilitate the release of Bhanupratap (Dev Anand).

In the video clip, there are only two stanzas where as the audio clip contains the full song of four stanzas. This is the 10th song to appear on the Blog out of 17 songs in ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I present here a repeat song that is quite different from the string of songs in this series so far. I shall begin by introducing the original song.

The original song is from the 1953 film – ‘Hamdard’. The song has been written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music composition is by Anil Biswas. The original song is in the voice of Manna Dey, and it is already posted on the blog a good eight years ago. That post can be viewed at “Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya”.

The repeat song, this time appearing in the film ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ from 1960. The song is the same, but for the latter film, it has been re-recorded. The music director of the latter film is Ravi. The second recording is different, both with regards to the composition, as well as the singing voice. The latter song has been recorded in the voice of Rafi Sb, in a tune that is quite different from the original.

In the latter film, only the mukhda of the song is present. The full song is not presented. It would be interesting to know whether the latter version of the song was recorded as a complete song, or only the lines that are actually present in the film.

So the repeat song has been re-recorded, using a different tune, and in a different voice. And it is only used partially. There surely are other instances in Hindi films, where snippets of songs from earlier films have been used partially. This case is interesting, in that it has been formally re-recorded, different voice, different tune. As far as I can check, it appears that this is the only instance of its kind, in the category of repeat songs.

Here is another very interesting anecdote about this song. There is actually another instance in Hindi films, where these lines appear, albeit equally briefly. The film is ‘Teesri Manzil’ from 1966. The scenario is played out as follows.

The location is again the restaurant of the hotel. Shammi Kapoor, or Rocky, (also Anil) has just finished singing the song – “Tumne Mujhe Dekha Ho Kar Meharbaan”. He is on the seventh heaven, considering that Asha Parekh, or Sunita has come to his performance of this song. Little does he know that the letter that was supposed to reach her the previous evening has just been delivered to her in the restaurant. Of course, knowing the truth, Sunita is livid at the deception played by Anil. And Anil, on the seventh heaven, has completed the song and launches into a monologue, telling the audience, how lucky he is having found love. He reaches the table where Sunita is sitting, and she is in tears. Continuing the monologue, Anil reaches out for her hand, and starts to speak these lines –

Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya
Ke Chirag Raah Mein Jal Gaye. . .

The unexpected next instant is a shock, as Sunita pulls back her hand and lands a resounding slap on Anil’s cheek.

So a very interesting set of appearances these lines make – from 1953 to 1960 to 1966.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, on his 40th remembrance day.

This snippet also brings back memories of another great performer – Kumkum, who passed away on 28th July, three days ago. In the closing minutes of this film, she makes a decision and leaves her home, to follow the person she loves, no matter that person is a dishonest conman.

Song – Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya  (Tu Nahin Aur Sahi) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Ravi
[Note: The music director for the original tune in ‘Hamdard’ is Anil Biswas.]

Lyrics

tera haath haath mein aa gaya
ke chiraag raah mein jal gaye
mujhe sehal ho gayin manzilen
wo hawa ke rulh bhi badal gaye

tera haath haath mein aa gaya

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, yes, this one too.

And I am very sure most of us would not have heard, or even heard of, the third stanza in this song. Ah yes, that is the wonderful bonus we have from the repeat use of this song. I was not even aware of the existence of a third stanza of this song, before my dear friend Ahsaan Bhai (of Hapur) introduced me to this repeat song in the 1978 film ‘Nasbandi’. That was a few months ago. In wayward manner, i.e. without any proper identification etc., this song is available on you tube. And unless one is aware of what one is looking for, one is bound to miss it.

And the third stanza – I wonder where and how IS Johar was able to lay his hands on the extended version of this song. Is the film availabl somewhere? Food, and quite wholesome food at that, for thought. The repeat use is the original recording in the voice of Rafi Sb. And as such, it is not listed in the Geet Kosh, for the film ‘Nasbandi’.

Definitely, the best of the fast paced super foot tappers sung by Rafi Sb. Listening to this, one can but not cease being amazed in wonder at the spectrum of the range that Rafi Sb has rendered over the near four and a half decades of his career as a playback singer in Indian cinema.

The original song, from the film ‘Mr X’ from 1957. The film is sadly not available, not traceable at present. And so one cannot write about the picturization. However, one thing that Ahsaan Bhai has confirmed with certainty that this song is performed on screen by Johnny Walker, in the original.

The repeat song in the film ‘Nasbandi’ is presented, in original, as a background song. Now, ‘Nasbandi’ is  Johar Films production. And knowing the penchant IS Johar has for spoofing and presenting a near gobbledygook farce of the normal situations, one must see this clip with a barrelful of salt, keeping on the side, all the sensible understanding of the real world, or even the reel world. The fun in his films is very much in-your-face farce.

IS Johar was an acknowledged intellectual and man of letters. Only that his capabilities in this arena got directed towards comedy and fun. One can sense that he is making a film for fun, and in that process he is making fun of a lot of established ideas, and even well known people. He went on to produce many films of this calibre.

Another thing that I want to highlight is his penchant for the motor bike. In practically all his films that I have seen, there is one or more scene of motorbike riding, and in some cases, real dare-devilry motorbike riding, be it ‘Johar in Kashmir’ (1966), ‘Johar and Mehmood in Goa’ (1965), or ‘Johar and Mehmood in Hong Kong’ (1971). In this film too, the same gimmickry appears. This song is all about extreme motorbike riding, with display of driving skills underwater, driving on rail tracks, ascending and descending stair cases, besides the other nominal tricks of motorbike riding. One enjoys the song of course. But one also realizes – it is in the film just for the heck of it. 🙂

Ah but, this post is not about IS Johar and his films. It is the recall of this iconic song sung by Rafi Sb, and as mentioned above, the wondrous discovery of a third stanza of this song.

40 years ago, this divine virtuous voice, departed from this world of the mundane. And the world became lesser so with his departure. The artist that he was, and the humane person that was him, only rarely one finds these two attributes of eminence so pleasantly enmeshed together.

Just like water – it will take shape of whatever container one pours into. And it will take up the color of whatever it is mixed with. That is the artist in Rafi Sb. His voice in the background, almost always sounded as the voice of the actor in front. That is what water does – accepts everything, becomes everything.

Such is the same – as with Rafi Sb.

Amen.

ओ वाये वाये वाये कोई तीर खा ना जाना
ओ मान मान मान मेरी जान मेरा कहना
इनकी चाल ढाल के ख्याल में ना रहना
अजनबी पे बेधड़क
खुली सड़क चलाते हैं
चलाते हैं ये जादू लाल लाल गाल
ओ लाल लाल गाल
जान के हैं लागू
ओ देख देख देख
दिल पे रहे काबू
ओ चोर चोर चोर
भाग परदेसी बाबू॰ ॰ ॰

वाह वाह वाह क्या हसीन है ज़माना
ओ आह आह आह इनके धोखे में ना आना
साथ साथ साथ नाचना नज़र बचा के
हाथ हाथ हाथ थामना जिगर बचा के
वाह वाह वाह क्या हसीन है ज़माना
ओ आह आह आह इनके धोखे में ना आना
साथ साथ साथ नाचना नज़र बचा के
हाथ हाथ हाथ थामना जिगर बचा के
अजनबी पे बेधड़क
खुली सड़क चलाते हैं
चलाते हैं ये जादू लाल लाल गाल
ओ लाल लाल गाल
जान के हैं लागू
ओ देख देख देख
दिल पे रहे काबू
ओ चोर चोर चोर
भाग परदेसी बाबू॰ ॰ ॰

So, today, we have two movies eligible for posting a song under ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge’ viz. ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta’ (1967) and ‘Thakur Jarnail Singh’ (1966). In this post, I am presenting a song from ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta’ wherein Prakash ji had sent the lyrics of this multiple versions song.

When I saw the mail and the song title, I was surprised to note that this song has not been posted yet on the blog. But when I checked the other remaining song from this movie, I was more surprised to note that there is one more song which I like very much because of the actor performing on it 😊 but this song too is yet to be posted on the blog. Well, I had watched this movie during my stay at Parli-Vaijnath from 1985-1988. And this movie did bring back memories of my stay there and the ‘peak movie watching period’ for me there, when I used to watch maximum movies of yesteryear coming to theatres. I remember I liked this movie and its songs too.

The film is produced and directed by Devi Sharma for ‘Janta Chitra’. It has Rajshri, Jeetendra, Mehmood, Leela Chitnis, Aruna Irani, Randhir, Tun Tun, Farida, Shahid, Rekha, SK Prem, Sujata, Jankidas and Jeevan. The story of this movie is also written by Devi Sharma, and its screenplay was written by Ravi Kapoor. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sarshar Sailani. Editing of this movie was done by Dharamvir. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.05.1967.

This movie has seven songs including one multiple version song. Lyrics were written by Hasrat Jaipuri and Shailendra (one song – the title song only). Music of this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Mukesh, Manna Dey and Sharda had given their voices to for the songs in this movie.

So far, the following songs from ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta’ have been posted on the blog;

Chaahaa thaa banoon pyaar ki raahon ka devata  22.07.2010
 Raam kare kahin nainaa naa uljhen  30.07.2010
 Teer aankhon ke jigar ke paar kar do yaar tum  13.07.2012

Today’s song is the multiple version song where the male version is sung by Mohd Rafi and the female version has the voice of Sharda. Jeetendra is lip syncing in the voice of Rafi Saab in the male version whereas in the female version Rajshri is lip syncing in the voice of Sharda. Both of them are seen in the picturization of this song where we could see the lovers ‘complaining’ about each other for ‘trapping in love’ and simultaneously also reminding that one will not be able to forgot them easily.

As mentioned above lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let us now enjoy this lovely song in both versions …

Song – Hum Ko To Barbaad Kiya Hai, Aur Kisey Barbaad Karoge (Gunaahon Ka Devta) (1967) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Sharda, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

haaye
kis ki jaan logi
kyaa iraada hai

hum ko to barbaad kiya hai
aur kise barbaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai
aur kise barbaad karoge
bhool na jaana aaj ke din ko
ek din hum ko yaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

tirchhi nazar ke teer chalaao
naaz-o-adaa ki bijlee giraao
tirchhi nazar ke teer chalaao
naaz-o-adaa ki bijlee giraao
uff na karenge
hum bhi to dekhein
kitne sitam iijaad karoge
kis ki jaan logi
kya iraada hai
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai
aur kise barbaad karoge
bhool na jaana aaj ke din ko
ek din hamko yaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

tum chaaho to jaan bhi le lo
kaafir ho imaan bhi le lo
tum chaaho to jaan bhi le lo
kaafir ho imaan bhi le lo
dil waalon se paala pada hai ae
tum bhi bhala kya yaad karoge
ha haa
kis ki jaan logi
kya iraada hai
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai
aur kise barbaad karoge
bhool na jaana aaj ke din ko
ek din hamko yaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

hum bhi tumhein bechain karenge
pyaar mein aisa rang bharenge ae
hum bhi tumhein bechain karenge
pyaar mein aisa rang bharenge
neend na hogi in aankhon mein
tadpoge fariyaad karoge ae
ha ha
kis ki jaan logi
kya iraada hai
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai
aur kise barbaad karoge
bhool na jaana aaj ke din ko
ek din hamko yaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

हाए
किस कि जान लोगी
क्या इरादा है
हमको तो बरबाद किया है
और किसे बरबाद करोगे
हमको तो बरबाद किया है
और किसे बरबाद करोगे
भूल ना जाना आज के दिन को
एक दिन हमको याद करोगे
हमको तो बरबाद किया है ए

तिरछी नज़र के तीर चलाओ
नाज़ ओ अदा कि बिजली गिराओ
तिरछी नज़र के तीर चलाओ
नाज़ ओ अदा कि बिजली गिराओ
उफ़ ना करेंगे
हम भी तो देखें
कितने सितम इजाद करोगे
किस कि जान लोगी
क्या इरादा है
हमको तो बरबाद किया है
और किसे बरबाद करोगे
भूल ना जाना आज के दिन को
एक दिन हमको याद करोगे
हमको तो बरबाद किया है ए

तुम चाहो तो जान भी ले लो
काफिर हो ईमान भी ले लो
तुम चाहो तो जान भी ले लो
काफिर हो ईमान भी ले लो
दिल वालों से पाला पड़ा है
तुम भी भला क्या याद करोगे
ह हा
किस कि जान लोगी
क्या इरादा है
हमको तो बरबाद किया है
और किसे बरबाद करोगे
भूल ना जाना आज के दिन को
एक दिन हमको याद करोगे
हमको तो बरबाद किया है ए

हम भी तुम्हें बेचैन करेंगे
प्यार में ऐसा रंग भरेंगे
हम भी तुम्हें बेचैन करेंगे
प्यार में ऐसा रंग भरेंगे
नींद न होगी इन् आँखों में
तड़पोगे  फ़रियाद करोगे
ह ह
किस कि जान लोगी
क्या इरादा है
हमको तो बरबाद किया है
और किसे बरबाद करोगे
भूल ना जाना आज के दिन को
एक दिन हमको याद करोगे
हमको तो बरबाद किया है ए
