It can be seen from the table of 1968 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 84 songs in movies released in 1968. As many as 83 of these songs are already covered in the blog ! Out of 33 movies of 1968 here Lata Mangeshkar sang, all songs of 32 movies are already covered.

There is only one movie of 1968 containing a Lata Mangeshkar song thatis not yet covered in the blog.

This movie is “Apna Ghar Apni Kahaani”(1968). This movie was directed by Phani Majumdar fr Rachna Films, Bmbay. This “social” movie had Shekhar, Bina Rai, Mumtaz, Sudhir, Bela Bose, David, Brahm Bhardaj, Madhumati, Keshto Mukherjee, Keshav Rana, Baby Farida etc in it.

This movie was originally named “Pyaas”. Its records were issued under this name. So one should not be confused if this song is mentioned as belonging to “Pyaas” by some people.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

The movie had one Lata solo in it which is not covered so far.

I had come across this song some time back. The song was wonderful to listen to and I had earmarked it for some special occasion. Now that I have to discuss a Lata Mangeshkar sng from 1968, this is the ONLY Lata Mangeshkar song available for me to discuss !

This song is penned by Qamar Jalalabadi. N Datta is the music director.

The song is picturised on Bela Bose as a roadside tamasha song. Bela Bose is dancing joyously hile the lyrics of the song are meant to express the feelings of separation that Bina Rai, playing a dukhiyaari naari and listening to the song from the cofines of her home.

Some people, including I are immediately reminded of the “Zanjeer” (197) roadside tamasha song Deewaane hain deewaanon ko na ghar chaahiye . That song had a female dancer dancing joyously hile lip syncing the feelings of the lead pair watching from their residence.

Both these songs had another thig in common, viz a male dholak player ho is better known in other capacity. The “Zanjeer” dholakiya was played by lyricist Gulshan Bawra. Here the dholak player is Prem Dhawan, better known as a lyricist cum music director.

In my view, that I had expressed during the earlier days of this blog, 1968 was a year that gave us a large mumber of immortal songs and so I describe this year 1968 not as a golden year but as a Platimun year for HFM. This year had quality songs even though quantity was less-only 458 songs which was the loest number of songs composed for movies of a calender year during the entire Golden era of HFM (spanning from 1949 till 1980.

ith this song, each and every Lata Mangeshkar song sung by her for movies of 1968 have been covered in the blog. So Lata Mangeshkar songs of 1968 get YIPPEED in the blog, so to say. It is a matter of time when all 458 songs of 1968 too get covered in the blog. Right no we are at 316 songs for the year with just over 150 songs to go for 1968.

Remembrance Day of N Datta on 30.12.2020
———————————————————
————————————–
Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (01)
————————————–
This is a tribute post for Datta Naik, also known as N Datta, on his 33 death anniversary. It looks as if, N Datta formed a successful team with Sahir Ludhianvi as most of his popular songs are with Sahir in the period 1957-1959. He has composed a sizeable 349 songs in 54 films, out of which 221 are already in the blog.

A few weeks aga I inadvertently ended up with a short list of Geeta Dutt’s song links, which included different genre of songs, duets, solos and female duets. They are mostly so sweet and pleasing songs. Sometimes melancholy, but still sweet.

So here is the first song in the series, combined with the remembrance day tribute post of N. Datta. It is a Mohammed Rafi- Geeta Dutt duet from the 1960 film “Rickshawala”. The lyricist here is Jan Nisar Akhtar. The song actually is a sales pitch song. The sale of the humble fruit called “Chikoo”. It is called “Sapota” too. Both singers along with chorus are enthusiastically promoting it, even offering it for free, in exchange of a heart. The celebrity names are also freely taken for encouraging people to buy the fruit. So it is a fruit vendors song, who say that :

‘chehre ka ye husn badhaaye,
Nargis khaaye,
Nimmi khaaye,
khaaye madhubala”

‘ Chikoo’ is supposed to be rich in iron, so may be, it is useful in increasing ‘chehre ka husn’. I had early experience of buying ‘chikoo’ in, believe it or not Mumbai local trains. The price was unbelievable, 5-6 chickoos for Rs. 2/- only. Those were the cheap 80’s.

Only two songs from this film are posted so far :

Song Date of posting
Neeli saadi sunahra jumper 14 February 2012
Jawaani mein to ik dil ki 18 December 2018

Title of the film is ‘Rickshawala’, but there is no riksha or tonga song here. There are these marathi words repeated in the song ‘aga saku, ghe chikoo’. It means ‘O saku, buy chikoo’. ‘Saku’ may be a slang or a nickname of sort, where girls are called ‘saku’ in a teasing way.

I could find only the audio link for the song, but it is filmed on Johnny Walker and Anita Guha. Another film with only Mohammed Rafi male singer, with Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt.

Today 12th Dec’2020 is the ninety-third birth anniversary of Datta Naik also known as N. Datta. He was born on 12th December’1927 in Goa, and he passed away on 30th December’’1987 at Mumbai (then Bombay).

On this occasion here is a song from the movie ‘Naach Ghar-1959’.

‘Naach Ghar-1959’ was directed by R.S. Tara for ‘Quality Pictures, Bombay’. R.S. Tara was also the producer of this movie. It had Ashok Kumar, Shobha Khote, Gopikrishna, Helen, Kamala Laxman, Anup Kumar, Dhumal, Iftekhar, Maya Das, Mirza Musharraf, Jamal, Sujata, Bismillah, Vivek and others.

This movie was passed by the Censor Board on 23.01.1959.

‘Naach Ghar-1959’ had ten songs as listed in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960).

These songs are :-

Blog Day:

4481 Post No. : 15992

Hello everyone,

My appearances here on the blog are becoming increasingly infrequent, not unlike the cameo visits of an MP/MLA to his constituency post-elections. 🙂

I will not get into reasons for my long absence from here – no excuses. Mea culpa.

As usual, my appearance here marks a special occasion.
This time it has to do with Sahir Ludhianvi’s death anniversary.

The legendary poet & lyricist passed away exactly 40 years ago, on the 25th of October 1980.

What can I write about Sahir that I haven’t already written here in previous posts?

Hardly anything, to be honest.

I’ve written so much about him here, on many of his birth and death anniversaries, that anything I write will be repetitive.

And yet I cannot let the occasion go by without marking it with my small contribution here. It has almost become a ritual for me now. 🙂

One thing though.

I might be a big Sahir fan, but I´m nothing compared to Avinash ji.
As usual, he contacted me a few days ago requesting me to do a post for this occasion.

And, as usual, he sent me a song with lyrics.

That was all the motivation I needed to come out of hibernation. 🙂

Prompted by the lyrics of this song, Avinash ji also shared some of this thoughts with me. Wide-ranging reflections on society, politics, media, polarization and other topics.

I must say I agree with his views – sobering thoughts for these times.

So today, perhaps the best tribute I can give Sahir is not to repeat what I’ve said so often about his poetry and lyrics, but to just reflect on where we are as a society, much as Sahir often did.

So kindly bear with me as I share a few thoughts.

You don’t have to agree with me at all – that’s perfectly fine.
We can disagree – and still be friends. 🙂

So if Sahir were around today, how would he have felt about today’s India?

Indian society, politics, media, justice system. . . everything that touches the common man’s life.

Am specifically talking about the common man, because clearly Sahir used his voice most to speak up for the aam aadmi and underprivileged against the powerful.

I’m not sure Sahir would’ve had many kind things to say.

The religious divide he warned us about, the exploitation of women he lamented, the oppression of labor class that he railed against, the caste inequality that he talked about – all of them exist, and even flourish, to this day.

At least in the early years post-independence, one can argue that India was still struggling to find its feet. It was besieged with a whole lot of baggage, including mass illiteracy and mass poverty, a colonial hangover, lack of institutions and infrastructure.

Not that any of this is an excuse to justify oppression, but India was still a baby then, and had huge challenges to deal with on multiple fronts. It had a history of feudalism that ensured a master-slave mentality between the haves and have-nots.

Today, many decades later, it’s not unfair to expect India to have matured more as a democracy. With more concern for people’s rights and freedoms, a greater regard for the dignity of every individual.

And yet how much have we really matured as a democracy?

We keep thumping our chests, claiming to be the world’s largest democracy. But what should democracy really mean?

Many think it is the right to vote.
But is that all there is to a democracy?
The right to vote?
That’s too narrow and limiting a function of a democracy.

For me, in a democracy (as opposed to a dictatorship), each person has a voice, has a right to express an opinion.

In fact, voting is one way of expressing your opinion.
But it’s just ONE way.

When farmers go on a nationwide protest to draw attention to their issues, they are also exercising their right to express themselves.

When citizens protest on the streets against what they believe to be an unfair law, they are similarly exercising their right to express themselves.

As long as the protests are peaceful, they are legitimate in a democracy.

In fact, even before independence, Gandhi ji and other leaders led peaceful protests against colonial rule. So it is nothing new in India.

Many of Sahir’s songs are actually a protest against exploitation by those in power. Imagine if he were not allowed to express his thoughts!

Do we even want such a society?

Do we want everyone to be a blind conformist, not to have independent thoughts of his own, to be fearful of expressing himself, to kowtow to those in power without a murmur?

Then we might as well just call ourselves a nation of slaves.

There’s no point in a nation being free, if its people aren’t.

A nation is nothing without its people.

And people, whether some of us like it or not, have the power to think.

And when they think, they might not exactly think in our way.

Just because we have power, it doesn’t entitle us to stifle their voice.

That goes against the very grain of a democratic mindset, in which each person has a voice.

Unless the person is inciting violence, no one has the right to shut him up.

Not even the State.

If you disagree, put forth a better argument to make your case.

Don’t use your brute power to threaten, intimidate or (in the case of the State)  arrest those you disagree with.
Just because you can.
That’s sheer abuse of power.

This has nothing to do with any particular political party. Many of them are guilty in their own ways of suppressing people’s voices.

If they get their way, what will we end up with?

A people living in fear, afraid to express an opinion that might be frowned upon by those in power.

Everyone becoming a conformist – whether by choice, or out of sheer fear.
In short, a nation of sheep.

Is that what we want?

Let’s pause, and reflect on this for a moment.

Speaking purely for myself, I like to express my views rather openly, even if they’re not exactly reflecting popular sentiment of the moment.

If I have to check myself every time, out of fear for repercussions, I’d feel extremely stifled.

As Sahir would too.

There are many more topics one can reflect on (and Avinash ji’s thoughts traversed many of them), but I’m limiting myself to just this one topic today because it sort of syncs with the song for today. Need to also leave material for future posts on Sahir, right? 🙂

Today’s song from ‘Naach Ghar’ (1959) is  Sahir’s sarcastic piece of advice to society.  “Just observe things happening, but don’t  speak up. Just let them happen. Don’t upset the apple-cart. Even call the dark of night, “day” if you need to”.

I quite like the rendition by Lata Mangeshkar.

Music is by N. Datta, for whom Sahir wrote excellent lyrics also for ‘Dhool Ka Phool’, also a 1959 film. And for ‘Dharmputra’ (1961). So theirs was quite a fruitful partnership.

In fact, I’ve already written a post for a song from Naach Ghar (1959) on the occasion of Sahir’s 500th song on this blog – “Tere Shehron Se Raja Hamen Ban Hi Bhaley

That is a straightforward lament, today’s song is a sarcastic take on society.

I like both songs a lot, but then I’m biased towards Sahir so my opinion should be taken with a truckload of salt. 🙂

So please listen to the song, and judge for yourself.

In closing, I’d like to say Sahir was one of a kind.  They don’t make his type anymore.

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.

Song – Teri Ada Pe Qurbaan, O Jaane Waale (Naach Ghar) (1959) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Sahir Ludhianvi, MD – N Datta

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 81
————————————————–

OK, so finally ‘Anmol Ghadi’ got yippeee’d this week, on the very first day of the week. And Atul ji, still waiting for you to clear the mystery behind this yippeee.

Once again, a very prolific week, the pace of post updates continues in full swing. Except that one day this week, we scored only a single. But for the rest of the week, it was all sixes with one extra run from an overthrow.

The blog scored 38 posts this week. Of these 38, we had only one guest post for the week – by Santosh Ojha ji. A total of 36 films made their appearance, with two films scoring two appearances each. We had 1 film that reached yippeee status. A whopping 15 films made their debut this week. That is close to almost half the films that got featured that week.  Since that week was done with, of the 36 films featured, 26 films have been formally and fully yippeee’d. Ten of them are still awaiting their numbers to be fully showcased. Given below is the detailed chart for the week. You will notice a new column and new notations today. I will explain them later in this write up.

You may notice that I used the phrase ‘formally and fully’ to qualify the yippeee status of the films. The reason I used this phrase is the following. As we are making progress towards our ideal of bringing on board all the Hindi film songs, we do find ourselves against certain difficult limitations. These have to do with – one, non availability of certain songs, and two, erroneous or missing information about some films and songs. I will highlight these situations as we progressively face them. For this week, here are the difficult situations that I came across.

The first one is the film ‘Mukhdaa’ from 1951. This film debuted on our blog on 16th Sep ten years back. The film has 11 songs, as per the Geet Kosh listings. We have located and posted 9 of them over the past decade. The remaining two are practically untraceable. Firstly, of the 11 songs listed, one was never put on a gramophone record, as the producers planned for and contracted with HMV for only 5 discs, which means 10 songs in all. The song at serial no. 6 – “Dekho Jee Pehli Baar, Kiya Hai Tumse Pyaar” was never released on a gramophone record. Then comes a footnote in the Geet Kosh which states that one record, N36900 was ordered, but then cancelled later on. It never got published, although the songs were recorded. This record was supposed to carry the two songs at serial no. 3 – “Mehlon Ke Rehne Waale Mehlon Mein Hans Rahe Hain” and serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal Jee, Palle Nahin Maal Jee”. So that would mean that we should have 3 missing songs and not 2.

But wait, here is one more interesting twist in the story. It seems that after cancelling the publication of the record N36900, the producers went ahead and commissioned one more record, with number N50008. Looking at the huge gap in the series number of the records, it is clear that the latter record (N50008) was ordered much later than 1951. Strangely, this newly ordered record now carried the song at serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal. . .” and the song at serial no. 10 – “Jaa Teri Meri, Meri Teri”. This latter song at serial no. 10 was already published and is available as one side of the record with number N36870, the flip side of which carries the song at serial no. 5 – “Neele Se Dupatte Pe Hain Peeli Peeli Dhaariyaan”. The net outcome of these, what I shall call – confusing decisions – is that the song at serial no. 10 – “Jaa Teri Meri. . .” is now available on two distinct published gramophone records for this film. And the song at serial no. 3 – “Mehlon Ke Rehne Waale. . .” has got lost, probably forever. The saving grace is that the song at serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal Jee. . .” is now available. It might also have been lost forever, but for this confusing set of decisions, which saved this song for posterity. And so the songs at serial no. 6 (this one not planned at all for release on gramophone record) and the song at serial no. 3 (unpublished due to cancellation of one gramophone record), are likely never going to surface. They may still be existing on some original spool tapes from the original recordings, and/or they may be on the soundtrack of the film. However, since both these items are not yet available in public domain, and with very little likelhood that they will make an appearance in the future, we could label them as LFe (Lost Forever). That does leave us two songs short of ever declaring this film as yippeee’d.

Coming to the second similar instance, also from this week. The film is ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ from 1962. It had made its debut on our blog on 23rd Dec, 2008. The seventh song of this film was posted on 24th Sep, 2011. Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. The missing song is the one at serial no. 5 – “Sahil Ki Taraf Kashti Le Chal, Toofaan Ke Thapede Sehna Kya”. As per the listing, this song was recorded in the voice of Hemant Kumar. This song never got published on a gramophone record. Now eight total songs will completely fit on 4 gramophone discs. But the producer seems to have taken a decision to completely omit this song. In fact, the song at serial no. 6 – “Bhanwra Bada Naadaan Haaye”, makes appearance on two gramophone discs nos. N54036 and N54038, while the above mentioned song in Hemant Kumar’s voice has been completely axed from any publication. It does not exist in the film. The film information booklet lists this song, and that is just about it. Here is one more case where a song qualifies to be labeled as LFe. And that also leaves the film ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ one song short of being declared as yippeee’d.

Based on the above discussed circumstances, these two films will never reach the Yippeee status. So I have a proposal here to address this situation. In the face of such stern circumstances, I propose that we introduce a Yippeee variant status – ‘Conditional Yippeee’ – to be indicated as ‘Yc’ in our charts and tables. In such cases, when we come to the conclusion that it is (almost) impossible that one or more songs of a certain film will ever be traced, we may declare that film to be Conditinally Yippeee’d, once all the possibly available songs are accounted for on our blog. The proposal is presented for consideration of the team, and I would request other members to please present their views and comments. In the table above of the week’s status ten years ago, I am provisionally marking these two films as ‘Yc’, pending agreement by the team,

This week we have one more case of a partial missing song in a multi part / multi version scenario. In the case of the film ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ from 1957. The main theme song of the film – “Chaand Ko Dekho Ji” / “Chaand Mere Aa Ja Re” – has one additional part, identified as the sad version. Details of this part are provided by dear Prakash ji, including the additional lyrics. Just that we as editors have not yet gotten around to update the post itself. In fact, the HFGK listing shows 7 songs, which include this sad version of the song. This sad version of the song is not released on gramophone discs, and is available only from the film itself. My effort is to get this post updated within a day, and be able to change the pending status of this film from ‘0.5’ to ‘0’. And by the way, the Geet Kosh listing has one incomplete information relating to this song. It lists Lata Mangeshkar as the singer of this part. However, as we view the video, we find that this part is in the voices of both Rafi Sb and Lata ji.

Let me come to the song for today. This discussion on errors and limitations has become quite long. I also wanted to write about the film ‘Doctor’ of 1941 and the related info error in the Geet Kosh. I encountered this error the previous week. But I will write about it in the next episode of this series.

‘Hercules’ of 1964, has quite a dubious distinction to note. The first song, the debut of this film, came on board on 18th September, 2010. Today, I bring on board the second song of this film. Interesting that this film has been in hibernation for a full decade, despite the fact that there are some wonderful songs pending for this film. As is evidenced by the song in this post – a Helen dance song in a royal darbaar setting. The words come from the pen of Anand Bakshi, the music is from the mind of N Datta and the singing voice is Asha Bhosle. On screen we see Dara Singh, as Hercules, in chains, possibly being prepared for execution. Other actors we see in this not so clear a video clip, are Nishi, BM Vyas, Maruti Rao, Leela Misra, P Kailash and Indira Billi.

Helen’s performance is her usual self – so wonderfully elegant and graceful, even as she gives a sensuous performance. The ease with which she is coordinating the dance movements, the lip syncing, the facial expressions et al – she is a master class all by herself.

I request the readers to please do comment on the proposed ’Conditional Yippeee’ status and the associated notation introduced in this week’s chart. Thanks.

“Mr John”(1959) was produced by Nigam and directed by Indar for N K Productions, Bombay. The movie had Shyama, Johny Walker, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Ifthikhar, Krishnakumari, Mumtaz, Tuntun, Mohan Choti, Kamal Mohan, Sampson, Uma Dutt, Ravi, Champal Lala, Rashid, Daraaz, Wahid, Genious, Tiwari, Ramlal, Anil, Singh, Jaani, Ghouse, Tarun Kumar, Ajay Kumar, Ajeet, B Fazl e Kareem, Mukhtaar, Pt Baijnath etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Mr John”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and Rafi. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by N Datta.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that this song is picturised on Shyama and Johny Walker. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Mujhe dekho hoti der (Mr John)(1959) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-N Datta

Lyrics

mujhe dekho hoti der
khade kyun mera rasta gher

o karo haaye na ye andher

sajan ghar jaane do o

na dekho din na dekho raat

ho karo haaye na ye andher
na lo yoon hamse nazren pher

jo dekhen gorey gorey gaal
na bigde kaise dil ka haal
jo dekhen gorey gorey gaal
na bigde kaise dil ka haal
na baaton mein hamen do taal
raho aankhon mein aankhen daal
raho aankhon mein aankhen daal
ki dil bhar jaane do o
ki dil bhar jaane do

mujhe dekho hoti der
khade kyun mera rasta gher
sajan ghar jaane do o
sajan ghar jaane do
sajan ghar jaane do o

aji ye dil hai be-aaraam
zara to pyaar se lo kaam
aji ye dil hai be-aaraam
zara to pyaar se lo kaam

karoge kya mujhe badnaam
arre hone ko aayi shaam
arre hone ko aayi shaam
sajan ghar jaane do o

ho karo haaye na ye andher
