Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 30
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago was 14 March 2012. That day saw four songs from four different movies getting discussed in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5635 De de khuda ke naam pe pyaare Alam Ara(1973) One song out of 11 covered so far
5636 Nagri meri kabtak yoonhi barbaad rahegi Man Ki Jeet(1944) Movie YIPPEED by now
5637 Kabhi tanhaayiyoon mein ek aisi bhi ghadi aayi Meenar(1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
5637 O jaane waale mudke zara dekhte jaana Shri 420(1955) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that three movies out of four whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with only one movie which is eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today (14 March 2022).

That movie is “Alam Ara”(1973).

Does the name “Alam Ara” and the date 14 march ring any bells ? Indeed it does, it was on 14 march 1931 that “Alam Ara”(1931) became the first Hindi talkie movie to be shown to public. The inaugural show of the movie took place at 5:30 PM in Bombay (now Mumbai) in Majestic Talkies. That was a saturday.

That movie is no longer available but movies with same name and same story were released in 1956 as well as 1971. Like the 1931 movie, even its 1956 and 1971 version are difficult to come by. Ten years ago on this date, a song of “Alam Ara”(1971) was discussed by Sudhir Jee, who managed to locate a song of “Alam Ara”(1973). This song had exactly the same lyrics as the very first song of “Alam Ara”(1931)- namely- “De de khuda ke naam pe pyaare”. Even more remarkably, it is sung by the same singer actor who sang this song in the 1931 movie, namely Wazir Muhammad Khan ! That writeup by Sudhir Jee is worth a relook on this special occasion.

14 march 2012 was exactly 81 years after “Alam Ara”(1931) was released. 14 march 2022 is exactly 91 years after “Alam Ara”(1931) was released. It is quite befitting that we discuss songs of “Alam Ara”(1973) on both thes days.

“Alam Ara”(1973) was produced by Mafatlal Shah and was directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Jaishree Films, Bombay. The movie had Nazima, Ajit Sachdev, P Jairaj, Mohan Choti, Uma Dutt, Rajnibala, Mohan Sherry, Munshi Munakka, Bhushan Tewari, etc. Wazir Muhammad Khan played the same role in 1973 movie that he had played in 1931, and 1956 versions of the movie. He was 31, 54 and 71 years old respectively when he played the role of fakeer and sang the same song in his own voice in all the three versions. !

Today, as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge, here is another song from “Alam Ara”(1973). This song is sung by Krishna Kalle, Chandrani Mukherjee and chorus. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.

Video of the song has become available by now. This song has two picturised versions. Part I (longer) is picturised on Bindu, Madhumati, Uma Dhawan, Saroj Khan etc with P Jairaj also visible on the throne. Part II is picturised on Ajit Sachdev and Naazima.

Lyrics of the song and other details were provided by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day : 3540 Post No. : 14212

Hullo Atuldom

Yesterday (27 march 2018) was World Theatre Day. I learnt about this in the morning yesterday, as I was listening to the Vividh Bharati. Apparently, this was initiated in the year 1961, by The International Theatre Institute. It is celebrated annually on 27thMarch.

We have a number of actors in Bollywood, both past and present, who started their acting career on stage. Many of them never miss an opportunity to go back to act in a play or theatre reading etc. “We cannot forget the immediate response that we get from the audiences” is the most heard sentiment from these actors who keep going back to do theatre. And then, we have had actors who have performed ‘in front of the camera’ as they would perform ‘in front of a live audience’ – remember Sohrab Modi and Prithviraj Kapoor (in some of his initial movies). But the later generation of actors adopted different styles for theatre and movies. Also improved sound systems in theatres must have helped in later years; when one didn’t have to speak in ‘loud booming voices’ so as to be heard in the last rows.

Today with this post I am thinking of Farooque Shaikh who also did a lot of theatre and who would have been 70 on 25th March, just two days back (he passed away in 2013). I also remember Om Puri who was a product of National School of Drama along with Naseeruddin Shah. And yes, how can one forget our dear Shashi Kapoor and his work in bringing theatre to the layman through his Prithvi Theatre also helping many theatre groups in the process by giving a platform to exhibit their art.

Yesterday’s Indian Express (online edition) has an article on how the Twitterati are celebrating the day- http://indianexpress.com/article/trending/trending-globally/what-is-world-theatre-day-twitter-reactions-5112818/. The article begins with Shakespeare’s famous quote from “As You Like It” –

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts.”

Strangely or coincidentally the song that I zeroed in for also says exactly the same thing. I had thought of it the moment I heard about the ‘World Theatre Day’. Then I sat through looking up articles on the internet and I referred Wikipedia for additional information and in the process landed on what Indian Express site had.

The song is written by a lyricist – Anand Bakshi – whose work I admire because he is one of the poets who puts the common man’s thoughts in poetry format (there are few more lyricists who do that but more on that later). The music is composed by Laxmi-Pyaare and playback is by Asha Bhonsle for Moushumi Chatterjee, whose presence is making Sulochana and Raj Mehra uncomfortable, while Vijay Arora and Nazeema are visibly squirming (would like to know why 😉). Then there is Jayshree T. dancing and Hari Shivdasani enjoying himself. There is also Snehlata (in white saree) who seems to be the happiest among the girls at the party. There are some more familiar faces in the party, which I am unable to name immediately. I request other readers to please help add more names to this video clip.

The film is directed by Sohanlal Kanwar and is one of the movies that has Subhash Ghai in its cast.

With this post, the blog now carries 700 songs by Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

The story of Laxmikant Pyaarelal reads like a dream rags-to-riches story. But it is also a story of hard work and persistent effort. Laxmikant, the senior partner in the team, was three years elder to Pyaarelal. Interestingly, both were born on 3rd of the month, Laxmikant in November and Pyaarelal in September. Pyaarelal is the son of the renowned musician Ram Prasad Sharma. Although active in the film industry since the latter part of 1930s, Ram Prasad did some films independently from 1947 to 1950. Not adept with commercial acumen, his financial status was poor most of his life. Pyaarelal, his eldest son, had to start working as a musician in recording studios at the age of 12, to support his family. The story of Laxmikant’s childhood is even more depressing. He was raised in the slums of Vile Parle in Bombay. His father passed away when he was just a toddler. A friend of his father supported him and guided him towards learning music. With time, his talent shone through, and he too started working as a musician in the film industry.

Remembering Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on the 19th anniversary of his passing away today (25th May).

Today I have found a long lost acquaintance with this qawwali. Actually I was looking at songs of this ‘Aarzoo’ posted in the blog, and thought it is not marked with red which means some songs are yet to be found. I have seen this movie too on T. V., the old black and white one. And thought i knew all the songs. I reached raaga.com through google search. There I found this song listed as ‘jab ishq kahin ho jaata’ sung by Asha Bhosle and Mubarak Begum. No, those words did not ring a bell. Than searching for audio/video on youtube revealed the ‘jab ishq kahin ho jaata hai’ The final ‘hai’ was very effective and I recalled the song, mukhda and even the words in the antaras were eminently guessable. It has been a while since I heard this song, and definitely had no inkling who are the singers of this song.
