Here is the eighth and final song from “Holiday in Bombay”(1963) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by N Datta.

Only the audio of the song is available. The uploader describes it as a rare song, but I remember having listened to this song is the past. It is an archtypical “Chaayaageet” song which is an ideal song to listen to during night time, with most people already asleep. Though it must be said that people now a days do not sleep even at “Chaayaageet” time. 🙂

With this song, “Holiday in Bombay”(1963) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Pyaar ki chaandni dil ki dushman bani (Holiday in Bombay)(1963) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-N Datta

Lyrics

Pyaar ki chaandni
dil ki dushman bani ee
Pyaar ki chaandni
dil ki dushman bani
chaand taare hain angaare
agar tum door door ho
Pyaar ki chaandni
dil ki dushman bani

chanchal uchhalti lahren
khoya khoya ye samaa aa
chanchal uchhalti lahren
khoya khoya ye samaa aan
sapne sajaati ghadiyaan
mausam ki shokhiyaan
sajna re tere bina
har rang hai dhuaan aan
Pyaar ki chaandni
dil ki dushman bani
chaand taare hain angaare
agar tum door door ho
Pyaar ki chaandni
dil ki dushman bani

doley basanti hawa
jhonke hain pyaar ke ae ae
doley basanti hawa
jhonke hain pyaar ke ae ae
baaghon mein gaaye bulbul
naghme bahaar ke
toote hain taar mere
dil e beqaraar ke ae
Pyaar ki chaandni
dil ki dushman bani
chaand taare hain angaare
agar tum door door ho
Pyaar ki chaandni
dil ki dushman bani

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Holiday in Bombay”(1963) to appear in the blog. HFGK is silent about the identity of the singers as well as the lyricist.

Listening to the song, it is clear that the song is sung by Rafi, Balbir and chorus. Video of the song is available which shows that this song is lip synced by Shashi Kapoor and Rajendranath in a get together situation. This song is supposedly a Lord Krishn bhajan but it is actually an “expression of love” song sung by our hero and his side kick for their respective love interests.

The uploader has mentioned Anjaan as the lyricist and I have gone with that.

Music is composed by N Datta.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the various actors who are visible in the picturisation of the song.

Song-Sapnon ka chanda aaya (Mr X)(1957) Singer-Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-N Datta

Lyrics

sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya

nain kamal ki pyaas bujhi
aaj suhaagan raat saji
jhoom uthha neelam ka gagan
pyaar bhari shahnaai baji
shahnaai baji
rum jhum jhum paayal baaje
madhosh tamannaa naache
gaati hai aaj bahaaren
har phool deewaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya

man chaahe mehmaan ho tum
armaanon ki jaan ho tum
ab na tumhen jaane doongi
chaahat ka imaan ho tum
imaan ho tum
taaron ka dil bhi doley
ye raat nasheeli boley
o chor hamaare dil ke
ab tujh to paana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laaya
taqdeer hamaari jaagi
rangeen zamaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya

saamne aaya pyaar mera
rang bhara sansaar mera
dekh nayi manzil pe piya
aaj hua deedaar tera
deedaar tera
ab jaana nahin dil se
armaanon ki mehfil se
o chain churaane waale
kya roop suhaana hai
sapnon ka chanda aaya
rimjhim jhim khushiyaan laya
taqdeer hamaari jagi
rangeen zamaana hai

“Aag Aur Toofaan”(1975) was directed by Ahmad for R R Films. This movie, though released in 1975 was a black and white movie and it had a very young looking Mumtaz from her B grade movie days. So it means that this movie was picturised in 1960s but it got a delayed release in 1975 when Mumtaz was winding down her acting career in Hindi movies.

The movie had Mumtaz, Robin Kumar, Anwar Hussain, Meenakshi, Mohan Choti, Keshto Mukherji, Junior Mehmood, Rajan Haksar, Rekha Chauhan, Amar, Tuntun, Rani, Uma Dutt, Sheikh, Uma Dhawan, Oscar, Kirti Kumar etc in it.

The movie had just three songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Aag Aur Toofaan”(1975) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Chandrani Mukherji. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by N Datta.

The song is picturised as a seduction dance song on a female dancer accompanied by a male dancer. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

With this song, “Aag Aur Toofaan”(1975) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Dil aaj bahut khush hai dildaar tujhe paa ke (Aag Aur Toofaan)(1975) Singer-Chandraani Mukherji, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-N Datta

Lyrics

dil aaj bahut khush hai
dildaar tujhe paa ke
dil aaj bahut khush hai
dildaar tujhe paa ke
main aaj tujhe de doon
main aaj tujhe de doon
tu jo bhi khushi maange
dil aaj bahut khush hai
dildaar tujhe paa ke

mehfil mein jaan aayi
mausam badal gaya wo
dil mein thha khatakta jo
kaanta nikal gaya wo
mehfil mein jaan aayi
mausam badal gaya wo
dil mein thha khatakta jo
kaanta nikal gaya wo
ye raat jagmagaayi
kismat meri jagaa ke
main aaj tujhe de doon
main aaj tujhe de doon
tu jo bhi khushi maange
dil aaj bahut khush hai
dildaar tujhe paa ke

baaton mein dhal na jaayen
khushiyon ke pal nasheele
pyaalon se roz pi hai
aankhon se aaj pee le
baaton mein dhal na jaayen
khushiyon ke pal nasheele
pyaalon se roz pi hai
aankhon se aaj pee le
aa tujh se kah rahi hai
meri chaal dagmaga ke
main aaj tujhe de doon
main aaj tujhe de doon
tu jo bhi khushi maange
dil aaj bahut khush hai
dildaar tujhe paa ke

tujh par bikher doon main
zulfon ki ye ghataayen
kurbaan kar doon tujh par
masti bhari adaayen
tujh par bikher doon main
zulfon ki ye ghataayen
kurbaan kar doon tujh par
masti bhari adaayen
dil ki lagi bujhaa le
mujhko gale lagaa ke

Blog Day : 3520 Post No. : 14136

There are many artists for whom I’ve written posts here, remembering them on their birth or death anniversaries. But there are two artists who have featured more than others in this regard. I remember them every day anyway – so on their anniversary it is only a matter of a different intensity. I am grateful to them every single day for their legacy, the treasure trove they have left us behind with. They are long gone now from this world – coincidentally they went within a few months of each other – but they remain, and will always remain, in my heart. And not just my heart, but millions of hearts. Such is the love we have for them, such is the hold they have over us.

I am of course talking about two giants of the industry – Rafi Saab and Sahir Ludhianvi.

Today happens to be the 97th birth anniversary of Sahir – and here I am, writing yet another post in his memory. I have already written many posts on him, so I expect this will be a short one. At least, by my standards. 🙂

From all accounts, Rafi Saab and Sahir were like chalk and cheese. Rafi Saab is reported always having a smile on his lips, a total lack of ego, easy to work with, a generally non-controversial nature – and was one of the most-loved artistes in the industry.

In contrast, Sahir was seen as egoist, not the easiest person to work with. He was seen as often being bitter and rebellious. He had his fair share of controversies – and differences with other artistes. It’s also fair to say that while everyone acknowledged his genius as a poet and lyricist, he didn’t exactly endear himself to one and all.

And yet both of them have a special place in my heart. They were masters of their craft, and when they executed it, whether through the written word (Sahir) or through his voice (Rafi Saab), the words went straight to my heart.

Since this is a post for Sahir’s anniversary, I will keep it to Sahir from here on.

Sahir needs no introduction to anyone here. And if he does, there are far better sources to discuss him than this post, so I would recommend checking out any of them. Here I will only talk briefly about why I love Sahir so much. It goes without saying that Sahir’s poetry (which often found its way in his lyrics) was in a class of its own. In fact, he often dumbed down (simplified) his poetry to make it more understandable for film-going audiences.

Much of Sahir’s poetry is understandably in Urdu – and his lyrics for film songs too have a strong Urdu slant to them. As a big fan of Urdu, I thoroughly enjoy listening to Sahir’s poetry and lyrics, even if I don’t always understand them. 🙂 But if it were only Urdu that attracted me to him, that would be at one level only. After all, I have a great regard for Shakeel Badayuni too – his lyrics were also often Urdu-based, and second to none.

No, it is more than just Urdu that attracts me. It is the poet himself – Sahir, the person.

To the world, his bitterness (‘talkhi‘), his moodiness, his ego, his sharp tongue might have made him intolerable. To me, I think it is these very qualities that helped him write the poetry he did. You cannot be dispassionate, you cannot be without fire in your belly – and write rousing poetry. It just doesn’t work. An actor might be able to completely keep his persona behind and immerse himself in a role the moment the director screams “Action”. After all, he is an actor – his job is to be somebody he isn’t in real life.

On the contrary, for a poet, his writing is nothing but an expression of himself and his creativity. And that creativity is a function of his mind, heart and soul. So it is only natural that how he thinks or feels will get reflected in his writing. It is possible to of course separate the two – and seasoned poets do – but when the poetry is in sync with the mood, it probably flows much more naturally. I’m guessing this – I’m no poet. 🙂

So Sahir throwing his feelings into his poetry is something I totally approve of. Now, to the content itself.

In his inimitable style, he wrote on a variety of topics. But he is most identified with having a strong opinion on social issues of the day – and never hesitating to express his opinion. He often used his poetry as a medium to convey a strong message. Sometimes showing a mirror to society, sometimes questioning the government of the day. Sometimes exposing hypocrisy, sometimes calling for revolution. Whatever it was, he was not just another poet content to write some lyrics and get paid for them. He was socially sensitive – and clearly the ills in society bothered him deeply. And this is one of the main reasons I SO love Sahir. How I wish we had more poets like him today, with so much awareness and concern for the plight of the common man!

He has written about injustice in society (“Samaaj Ko Badal Daalo”), about the need for unity in a fractured society (“Tu Hindu Banega Na Musalmaan Banega“), about women’s plight in India (“Aurat Ne Janam Diya Mardon Ko”), about hope (“Na Munh Chhupa Ke Jiyo”, “Ponchh Kar Ashq Apni Aankhon Se“, “Wo Subah Kabhi To Aayegi”) and despair (“Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai“, “Jinhen Naaz Hai Hind Par Wo Kahaan Hain“, “. . .Rehne Ko Ghar Nahin Hai, Sara Jahaan Hamaara“).

For someone who had a grounding in Urdu, he could write beautiful bhajans like “Tora Mann Darpan Kehlaaye“, “Prabhu Tero Naam“, “Allah Tero Naam“, “Meri Sun Le Araj Banwaari“,  and the immortal “Aan Milo Aan Milo Shyam Saanwre“.

Then there is the philosophical Sahir too, exemplified in songs like “Aage Bhi Jaane Na Tu“.

A recurring theme in his writing is the mother-child relationship, maybe based on his own experiences in life. It is well-known that he was particularly close to his mother – and chose her above his much more affluent father when he had to make a choice. So we see beautiful lyrics on mother-child in ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (“Tu Mere Pyaar Ka Phool Hai“), ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (“Tere Bachpan Ko“), ‘Trishul’ (“Tu Mere Saath Rahega Munne“)  – and I am sure some other films too.

Then there is the qawwaali Sahir. He excelled in them, with the qawwaalis of ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’, ‘Dharamputra’ and ‘Taj Mahal’ showcasing just some of his work.

And then there is the romantic Sahir. Yes, while he wrote about all other aspects of life, he did not come up short on what was bread-and-butter for most poets – romantic poetry. He could write the most romantic lines – the romantic songs of ‘Gumraah’ and ‘Hamraaz’, for example, just take your breath away. And not just these films – think of songs like “Parbaton Ke Pedon Par” from ‘Shagoon’, and on the same ‘parbat’ theme, “Ye Parbaton Ke Daayare” from ‘Vaasna’.

I can go on and on, discussing his songs, but I think I need to now come to the song for today. It is also a romantic song, but this time from very late in his career. It is no secret that in the 1970s, Sahir was disillusioned with the quality of lyrics on offer in Hindi cinema. Urdu, which offered so much richness to lyrics, was being phased out and replaced with more ‘chaalu‘ lyrics. In general, films (and music too, I might add) had become more loud and less, for want of a better word, classy.

He himself withdrew for a bit – and while he continued to work for the BR Chopra/Yash Chopra banners, he wasn’t as prolific as in the 60s. His disillusionment is probably best expressed in one of his most memorable songs of the decade – “Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar Hoon“.

It is in this context one needs to see the song for today. It is from the 1980 film ‘Chehre Pe Chehra’, a film that makes its debut on the blog today. I remember this film being released – and being a flop. I haven’t seen the film – my understanding is, it’s based on the famous ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ story. Sanjeev Kumar plays the dual role. The song is a romantic song – and pleasant enough, even if it doesn’t quite scale to the level of his heady songs of the 1960s. Even so, in comparison to the fare around at the time, I’d say its lyrics are better than most other songs of the time. Of course this is just my personal opinion.

Let’s now listen to the song, sung by Sulakshana Pandit and Rafi Saab. Music is by N Datta, one of his most famous pairings. I leave it to you to judge for yourself what you make of this song. I quite like it.

Lyrics were provided to me by the ever-helpful and reliable Avinash ji. A big thanks to him. He makes it so much easier for me to just focus on the write-up itself.

Song – Aaj Socha Hai Khayaalon Mein Bula Kar Tum Ko (Chehre Pe Chehra) (1980) Singer – Sulakshana Pandit, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Sahir Ludhianvi, MD – N Datta
Sulakshana Pandit + Mohammed Rafi

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

aaj socha hai. . .
aaj socha hai
khayaalon mein bulaa kar tum ko
pyaar ke naam pe thodi si shikaayat kar len
aaj socha hai

aaj socha hai
khayaalon mein bulaa kar tum ko
pyaar ke naam pe thodi si shikaayat kar len
aaj socha hai

aise bichhade ho ke jaise kabhi milna hi nahin
aise bhoole ho ki jaise  kabhi jaana hi na thha
ajnabhi ban ke agar yoon hi sitam dhaana thha
paas aana hi na thha  paas bulaana hi na thha
aao toote huye
aao toote huye
khwaabon ki jiyaarat kar len
aaj socha hai ae

ranjishen bhi wahin palti hain
jahaan pyaar paley
pyaar hi jis se nahin
us se gilaa kya hoga
meri ummeed hai tu
teri tammanna main hoon
aur chaahat ki duaaon ka sila kya hoga
ranjishen bhool ke
ranjishen bhool ke
khwaabon ko haqeeqat kar len
aaj socha hai

kya kahoon main tumhen
kya samjha hai kya maana hai
meri chaahat ne tumhen
apna khudaa maana hai
apna hissa hi tumhe maine sadaa maana hai
jaan ko kis ne bhalaa tan se judaa maana hai
jaan aur tan se
jaan aur tan se naya ahd-e-mohabbat kar len
aaj socha hai
aaj socha hai
khayaalon mein bulaakar tumko
pyaar ke naam pe thodisi shikaa …

hmm hmm hmm hmmmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm

aaj socha hai. . .

आज सोचा है॰॰॰
आज सोचा है
खयालों में बुला कर तुमको
प्यार के नाम पे थोडी सी शिकायत कर लें
आज सोचा है

आज सोचा है
खयालों में बुला कर तुमको
प्यार के नाम पे थोडी सी शिकायत कर ले ए ए
आज सोचा है

ऐसे बिछड़े हो के जैसे कभी मिलना ही नहीं
ऐसे भूले हो कि जैसे कभी जाना ही नहीं था
अजनबी बन के अगर यूंही सितम ढाना था
पास आना ही न था पास बुलाना ही न था
आओ टूटे हुए
आओ टूटे हुए
ख़्वाबों कि ज़ियारत कर लें
आज सोचा है ए

रंजिशें भी वहीँ पलती हैं
जहाँ प्यार पले
प्यार ही जिससे नहीं
उस से गिला क्या होगा
मेरी उम्मीद है तू
तेरी तमन्ना मैं हूँ
और चाहत की दुआओं का सिला क्या होगा
रंजिशें भूल के
रंजिशें भूल के
ख़्वाबों कों हकीकत कर लें
आज सोचा है

क्या कहूँ मैं तुम्हे
क्या समझा है क्या माना है
मेरी चाहत ने तुम्हें
अपना खुदा माना है
अपना हिस्सा हि तुम्हे मैंने सदा माना है
जान को किसने भला तन से जुदा माना है
जान और तन से
जान और तन से नया अहद-ए-मोहब्बत कर लें
आज सोचा है

आज सोचा है
खयालों में बुला कर तुमको
प्यार के नाम पे थोडी सी शिका…

हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्मम्म
हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म
हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म
हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म

आज सोचा है॰॰॰

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ऐ’ – ऐ चाँद तू देना गवाही

कहाँ आवाज़ दें तुमको कहाँ हो

सिर्फ एक गीतों का ही तो आसरा है॰ ॰ ॰ और कहाँ आवाज़ दें तुमको, ना जाने किस जहान् में चले गए॰ ॰ ॰

We arrive at the sixth episode of this series – a lively duet from the 1963 film ‘Holiday In Bombay’.

As I look at the blog statistics, the number of Rafi Sb – Asha Bhosle duets currently stands at 496, prior to this post. These are strictly duet songs. I make this specific distinction because there are another 20 songs in the blog, in which this pair is accompanied by one or more other voices. They are singing together but essentially not is a pure duet format.

‘Holiday In Bombay’ is a film produced under the banner of Yugchhaaya, and is directed by PL Santoshi. The list of actors in this film is, Shashi Kapoor, Vijaya Chaudhary, Rajendra Nath, Naseem Banu, Dhumal, P Kailash, Ulhas, Randhir, Sulochana Chatterjee, Rajan Haksar, Jeevankala, Ram Kumar, Renu Maakad, Heera Sawant, Kundan, BB Bhalla, D Dileep, Nazeer Kashmiri, Hublikar, and Lakshmi Chhaaya.

Geet Kosh lists eight songs for this film written by four songwriters – Anand Bakshi, Anjaan, PL Santoshi and Anwar Farrukhabaadi. This particular song is penned by Anwar. The music direction is by N Datta.

Although the complete film is available online, the video clip of this song is not. I request other folks who might have seen this film, to please add more information about the picturization of this song.

Song – Ae Chanda Tu Dena Gawaahi (Holiday In Bombay) (1963) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anwar Farrukhabaadi, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

gungunaane lagin aaj tanhaaiyaan
baj rahi hain kahin door shehnaaian
gungunaane lagin aaj tanhaaiyaan
baj rahi hain kahin door shehnaaian
ae sitaaro hanso
ae nazaaro hanso
geet chheda hai jaati hui shaam ne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

raat ke haath mein chaand ka phool hai
ye koi khwaab hai ya koi bhool hai
raat ke haath mein chaand ka phool hai
ye koi khwaab hai ya koi bhool hai
dil ko mehka diya
hum ko behka diya
teri aankhon ke rangeen paighaam ne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
dil hum ne diya hai tere saamne
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi
ae chanda tu dena gawaahi

ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही

गुनगुनाने लगीं आज तन्हाइयाँ
बज रहीं हैं कहीं दूर शहनाइयाँ
गुनगुनाने लगीं आज तन्हाइयाँ
बज रहीं हैं कहीं दूर शहनाइयाँ
ऐ सितारो हंसो
ऐ नज़ारो हंसो
गीत छेड़ा है जाती हुई शाम ने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही

रात के हाथ में चाँद का फूल है
ये कोई ख़्वाब है या कोई भूल है
रात के हाथ में चाँद का फूल है
ये कोई ख़्वाब है या कोई भूल है
दिल को महका दिया
हमको बहका दिया
तेरी आँखों के रंगीन पैगाम ने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
दिल हमने दिया है तेरे सामने
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही
ऐ चंदा तू देना गवाही

This is the 200th song of N Datta as a music director in the blog.

Missing Films of 1960s – 53
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Lal Lal Gaal. . .

I know I do not need to say more. Everyone is so familiar this song. And the special thing about this song? In my humble opinion, this probably is the fastest melody that any music director has got Rafi Sb to sing. The year is 1957 and the film – ‘Mr X’.

And then, this same music director, ten years later, has got the booming voice Mahendra Kapoor to sing the softest of the melodies – “Chaand Bhi Koi Deewaana Hai. . .”. The year is 1968 and the film – ‘Apna Ghar Apni Kahaani’.

Remembering N Datta – well quite late for his anniversary (both of which fell in December). And so this post has also been in the making, for well about a month.

Searching for information about him, not much details are available about his early years. So much so that multiple different web sites repeat mostly the same few sentences. They all write that he was born 1927 in Aroba, a small village in Goa. And that he ran away from home at the age of 12, and came to Bombay to learn music. Incidentally, I also came across one article online, which is based on an interview with Roop Naik, son of N Datta. The information provided by him is different from what is available everywhere else.

According to Roop Naik, his father N Datta (full name Dattaram Baburao Naik) was actually born in Bombay. He was not even two years old when his father passed away. After this tumultuous event in life, he and his mother move back to their native village, where the child Dattaram was brought up by his maternal uncle. Close to their village home, there was a temple, where weekly sittings of bhajan singing used to take place. He was quite enamoured by the ‘Abhang’ singing of these Bhajans, and never used to miss a session. During this period, he learnt to play harmonium, and would sometimes accompany the singers in the temple.

Another high point for him used to be when the travelling performing groups would visit the village. Music was very much within him, and so he was attracted by these public performances. And so, at home, he once expressed his wish to learn music. The dressing down that he received from his uncle, convinced him that his passion to learn music, and his family’s environment simply did not go together. So, at the age of 12, this young pre-teen kid, ran away from home and came to Bombay.

This period of his life, before he started getting recognition in the industry, is an unknown. No documented information is available. Lata Mangeshkar had mentioned once that she did meet him in 1946 (he would be 19 years old then), and that he was working as an assistant to a music director whose name she recalls as Kedar Shinde. The Ed. Note with this sentence observes that she probably was talking about Ramakrisna Shinde, a music director of Marathi films, who later also gave music under the pseudo name of ‘Hemant Kedar’.

The young aspirant worked as an assistant to Ghulam Haider Sb. He would also continue to participate in temple programs. He would be part of the ‘prabhat feris’, a very early morning bhjan kirtan session, that is taken out in a procession format, passing through the streets and by-lanes of a certain neighbourhood. It is said that at one of these ‘prabhat feries’, Burman Dada (SD Burman) witnessed his singing, and called upon him to know more about him and his capabilities. That started a long and fruitful collaborative partnerships, and the young Dattaram worked as an assistant in films like ‘Baazi’, ‘Bahar’, ‘Sazaa’ and ‘Ek Nazar’ (1951), ‘Jaal’ (1952), ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ (1953) and ‘Angarey’ (1954).

During the making of ‘Baazi’, Dattaram was introduced to future stalwarts like Sahir Ludhianvi and Raj Khosla, and struck lifelong friendships. When Raj Khosla got his first break as an independent director (film ‘Milaap’, 1955), he got N Datta the first assignment as an independent music director. And from that juncture onward, one sees his career got from strength to strength – ‘Marine Drive’ (1955), ‘Chandra Kanta’ (1956), ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke’ (1957), ‘Light House (1958), ‘Sadhna’ (1958), ‘Black Cat’ (1959), ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959), ‘Dharam Putra’ (1961), and more.

I have just listed a sampler. The total films listed for him are 55. Of these, about 22 films came in or before 1961. Two important points to be noted here. 1959 seems to be his most prolific year – seven films released this year, with music by him. Secondly, his friendship with Sahir Ludhianvi, got him his first assignment with the banner of BR Films. His first film with BR Chopra is ‘Sadhna’ (1958). Next, we him again with the BR banner in ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959) and ‘Dharamputra’ (1961). Just the names of these films are enough indication as to how wonderfully this relationship was developing, and the team of Sahir Sb and N Datta was producing phenomenal music together.

But then, fate intervened, and quite cruelly too. Just in his mid thirties, N Datta suffered a heart attack. The episode left him out of circulation for some months. He recovered. However, besides the health issues now in life, N Datta started another battle – a fear for his own life. It made him somewhat of an introvert person. He would be very afraid for his life, because of any episode of ill health. And his work suffered too. By the time he came out this medical emergency, BR banner had moved on. Ravi had been engaged as the music director. The first outcome was ‘Gumraah’. The commercial success of this film kind of excluded N Datta from the BR brand, for all times in the future.

The quality of his work also suffered. He continued to compose, and continue to create some fabulous and memorable songs. But his work would now be confined to B/C grade films. He continued to work till 1980 – his last film released is ‘Chehre Pe Chehra’. After that, no work probably came his way. He passed away in 1987. His later years were a struggle to keep afloat.

With today’s song, I introduce this film ‘Albela Mastaana’ from 1967. The film is produced under the banner of Pragya Pictures, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The star cast includes Kishore Kumar, Bhagwan, Kaveri, Kundan, Aruna Irani, Nayna, Rajan Haksar, and Asha Nadkarni amongst others. Five songs are listed for this film, all being written by Prem Dhawan.

This song is a wonderful melancholy that is sung by Asha Bhosle. The video of this film is now available. In the visual, we see Asha Nadkarni lip syncing this song on screen. A song that in as of itself, needs to placed together with such Asha Bhosle songs like “Baithe Hain Rehguzar Par. . .” and “Tujh Se Bichhde Tere Deewaane To Mar Jaayenge”. Lovely rendition, pulling at the strands of the heart.

Song – Phir Dil Mein Dard Jaaga  (Albela Mastaana) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

phir dil mein dard jaaga

phir dil mein dard jaaga
phir yaad teri aayi
aaja sahi na jaaye
hum se teri judaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga

badhne laga andhera
jaane ho kab savera
palkon se aansuon ki
hum ne shama jalaai
hum ne shama jalaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga
phir yaad teri aayi
aaja sahi na jaaye
hum se teri judaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga

khamosh hai zamaana
kis se kahen fasaana
khamosh hai zamaana
kis se kahen fasaana
apni sadaa bhi ab to
deti nahin sunaai
deti nahin sunaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga
phir yaad teri aayi
aaja sahi na jaaye
hum se teri judaai
phir dil mein dard jaaga

फिर दिल में दर्द जागा

फिर दिल में दर्द जागा
फिर याद तेरी आई
आजा सही ना जाये
हमसे तेरी जुदाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा

बढ़ने लगा अंधेरा
जाने हो कब सवेरा
बढ़ने लगा अंधेरा
जाने हो कब सवेरा
पलकों से आंसुओं की
हमने शमा जलाई
हमने शमा जलाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा
फिर याद तेरी आई
आजा सही ना जाये
हमसे तेरी जुदाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा

खामोश है ज़माना
किस को कहें फसाना
खामोश है ज़माना
किस को कहें फसाना
अपनी सदा भी अब तो
देती नहीं सुनाई
देती नहीं सुनाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा
फिर याद तेरी आई
आजा सही ना जाये
हमसे तेरी जुदाई
फिर दिल में दर्द जागा
