ना जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया॰ ॰ ॰

The touch was of magic. But the real life is so different from reel life. A career that spanned well over five decades, the opportunities for this magic touch weren’t many.

Remembering Naqsh Lyallpuri on the anniversary of his birth (24th Feb).

The full real name of this poet was Jaswant Rai Sharma. He was born in 1928, in the Lyallpur town (now in Pakistan, and renamed to Faislabad). His father was an engineer and he wanted young Jaswant to follow his footsteps and be an engineer. His mother passed away when he was only six, and his father remarried. As the young child grew through his school and college days, his interest in literature became evident and prominent. He drifted apart from his father, for the obvious reason that his father did not look kindly at the literary interest of his son, whom he had dreamt of being another engineer in the family.

When he was 18, he went to work with Hero Publishers, a publishing house in Layallpur. Just about a year later, partition happened, and he moved with family to Lucknow. His literary and poetic interests and activities met with a stern disapproval from his father. The drift made the young Jaswant leave home and move to Bombay, in search of a career as a songwriter. He took on the pen name of ‘Naqsh’ – meaning an imprint or an impression, and added Lyallpuri, being the town of his birth.

The early years, rather the early decades were just a struggle. He first started working with Times of India as a proof reader, and later got an employment with the Post Office. As for literary activities, he was drawn into the theatre activities to start with and started writing stage plays. Here, he came in touch with actor Ram Mohan, who in turn, introduced him to Jagdish Sethi. After reading some of his poetical works, Jagdish Sethi gave the first opportunity to write for films. He (Jagdish Sethi) was in the process of making the film ‘Jaggu’, which got released in 1952. He introduced Naqsh to the music director of the film – Hansraj Behl. And Naqsh got to write one song for this film.

The lyricist and the MD struck up a good friendship, and Hansraj Behl called upon Naqsh to write for him again in ‘Pensioner’ (1954) and ‘Mast Qalandar’ (1955). And so the career train started to move, albeit quite slowly. In 1955, he got his first independent assignment as a a lyricist for the film ‘Teen Sardar (1955), for which he wrote 6 songs. In ones and twos, songs written by him started getting popular. However, recognition as an impressive songwriter eluded him till the latter part of 1960s.  In 1968 came the film ‘Teri Talaash Mein’. The film did not do well, but its songs became very popular. With music by Sapan-Jagmohan, songs like “Kho Diye Hain Sanam Teri Talash Mein” in Asha Bhosle’s voice, the Rafi rendition of “Teri Awaaz Ki Jaadugari Se”, another one by Asha Bhosle – “Raaze-Dil Hamse Kaho Hum To Koi Ghair Nahin” etc. became very well known.

From here starts the ascendency of Naqsh Sb’s popularity. Continuing from this 1968 musical hit, he found the popular pulse with songs like “Main To Har Mod Par Tujhko Doonga Sadaa” (‘Chetna’, 1970), “Sajaaya Na Karo Phool Baalon Pe” (‘Gunaahon Ke Raaste’, 1970), “Jindagi Ke Mod Par Hum Tum Mile. . .” (‘Mann Tera Tan Mera’, 1971), “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan” (‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Le Chalo, Le Chalo, Ab Kahin Le Chalo” (‘Maan Jaaiye’, 1972), “Kai Sadiyon Se Kai Janmon Se” (‘Milaap’, 1973), “Rasm e Ulfat Ko Nibhaayen To Nibhaayen Kaise” (‘Dil Ki Raahen’, 1973), “Ye Shaam Hai Dhuaan Dhuaan” (‘Ek Naao Do Kinaare’, 1973), “Mere Mann Pawan Sang Udd Chal” (‘Ek Naari Do Roop’,1973), “Do Honth Hile Ek Geet Suna” (‘Nai Duniya Naye Log’, 1973), “Ulfat Mein Zamaane Ki Har Rasm Ko Thukraao” (‘Call Girl’, 1974), “Har Janam Mein Hamaara Milan” (‘Kaagaz Ki Naao’, 1975), “Tumhen Ho Na Ho Mujhko To. . .” (‘Ghraonda’, 1977), “Tumhen Dekhti Hoon To Lagta Hai Aise” (‘Tumhaare Liye’, 1978), “Yeh Mulaaqaat Ek Bahaana Hai” (‘Khandaan’, 1979), “Phir Teri Yaad Naye Deep Jalaane Aayi” (‘Aayee Teri Yaad’, 1980), “Maana Teri Nazar Mein Tera Pyaar Hum Nahin” (‘Ahista Ahista’, 1981), “Na Jaane Kye Hua, Jo Tu Ne Chhoo Liya” and “Pyaar Ka Dar Hai, Meetha Meetha, Pyaara Pyaara” (‘Dard’, 1981) – an many more.

In 2005, when Naushad Sb came on board for composing music for the film ‘Taj Mahal’, then Naqsh Lyallpuri was called upon to write the songs. Again, then in 2007, when Khaiyyaam Sb was scoring the music for the film ‘Yatra’, Naqsh Sb wrote the songs. A journey of almost six decades, that started in 1952 with the song “Agar Teri Aankhon Se Aankhen Mila Doon”, continued into next millennium, with elan.

In 2016, he had a fall, and a hip bone fracture. He was hospitalized in October 2016, and never did recover from this injury. He passed away on 22nd Jan, 2017.

Dhala Din Aise, Doob Gaya Jaise
Jalta Sooraj Raat Ke Gehre Andhere Mein…  (‘Laal Kothi’, 1978)

The song I present today is from an extremely obscure film from 1960 – ‘Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar’, which also carried the alternate title as ‘Black Rider’. The film makes its debut on our blog today. This film is directed by Mehmood, for the production banner of Screen Arts. The cast of actors of this costume drama film is listed briefly as Kaamran, Krishna Kumari, Habeeb, Sham, and Najma. The film has five songs listed, all penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Harbans.

A very delightful song of aspirations of love, it is a lovely rendition by Sudha Malhotra.

 

Song – Maine Dekha Hai Sapna Bahaar Ka  (Safed Ghoda Kaala Sawaar) (1960) Singer – Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Harbans

Lyrics

maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

main na samjhoon
main na jaanoon
koi bataaye mujhko kya ho gaya hai
jhukti jaayen
meri palken
baithe bithaae mera dil kho gaya hai
dil kho gaya hai
rang aankhon mein jhalke khumaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

chupke chupke
dil mein apne
maine basaa li hai duniya niraali
mere armaan
khil gaye hain
jabse mila hai mujhe bagiya ka maali
bagiya ka maali
haal poochho na dil e beqaraar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

pyar ban ke
aane waala
laaya hai mere liye naghme khushi ke
zindgagi ne
rang badla
ab na lagenge mujhe din pheeke pheeke
din pheeke pheeke
yehi mausam hai mere singaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
haaye mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka
maine dekha hai sapna bahaar ka
ho oo mere dil ne taraana chheda pyaar ka

मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

मैं ना समझूँ
मैं ना जानूँ
कोई बताए मुझे क्या हो गया है
झुकती जाएँ
मेरी पलकें
बैठे बिठाये मेरा दिल खो गया है
दिल खो गया है
रंग आँखों में झलके खुमार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

चुपके चुपके
दिल में अपने
मैंने बसा ली है दुनिया निराली
मेरे अरमां
खिल गए हैं
जबसे मिला है मुझे बगिया का माली
बगिया का माली
हाल पूछो न दिल ए बेक़रार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

प्यार बनके
आने वाला
लाया हैं मेरे लिए नग़में खुशी के
ज़िंदगी ने
रंग बदला
अब ना लगेंगे मुझे दिन फीके फीके
दिन फीके फीके
यही मौसम है मेरे सिंगार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
हाए मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का
मैंने देखा है सपना बहार का
हो ओ मेरे दिल ने तराना छेड़ा प्यार का

is tareh jaao nahin
jaao nahin
jaao nahin. . .

Wish that we could, but we are powerless. We can’t make them stay, ones who have to go away. Jaidev, the master of enchanting melodic creations. His film songs may number just about two hundred. But the impact he left behind him, is incomparable.

Remembering Jaidev on the 30th anniversary of his passing away (6th January, 1987).

Words like ‘tragic’, ‘unsung’, ‘unlucky’, ‘jinxed’ swim through the mind when one considers the life and career of this eminent music director. The only MD in the industry to have bagged three national awards for music direction. And all his life he lived in a one room flat near Churchgate in Bombay – a residence provided by an beneficent music lover. And when that benefactor passed away, his familial survivors reclaimed even that humble dwelling.

He scored one of his biggest successes with ‘Hum Dono’ in 1960. And yet Navketan never came back to him for another project. ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (1963) was bonanza of heavenly music. Yet there was such a serious falling out with Sahir Ludhianvi that they never worked together again. (With one exception – a lesser known ‘Laila Majnun’ from 1976). And this, despite the fact that Jaidev’s music is minimalistic, quite low on instrumentation, so much so that the poet’s words are always in the foreground.

National awards came his way in 1971 (‘Reshma Aur Shera’), 1978 (‘Gaman’) and 1984 (‘Ankahee’). But no big banner or a big budget producer came to his door. The songs of his films continued to be popular and continued to enamour the music lovers, be it ‘Do Boond Pani’ (1971) – “Jaa Ri Pawaniya Piya Ke Des Jaa”; ‘Bhaavna’ (1972) – “Phir Milengi Kahaan Aisi Tanhaaiyaan”; ‘Prem Parbat’ (1973) – “Ye Dil Aur Unki Nigaahon Ke Saaye”; ‘Aalingan’ (1974) – “Pyaas Thi Phir Bhi Takaaza Na Kiya”; ‘Parinay’ (1974) – “Jaise Sooraj Ki Garmi Se Jalte Huye Tan Ko”; ‘Andolan’ (1975) – “Piya Ko Milan Kaise Hoye Ree, Main Jaanyo Naahin”; and more. A patch of good times came in 1977 – 79 with a string of successful big name films – ‘Alaap’ (1977), ‘Gharonda’ (1977), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Dooriyan’ (1979), ‘Gaman’ (1979). But that streak of good luck did not last beyond that.

His work in the non-film arena is no less important and enchanting. His most famous non film creation is the music of Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s ‘Madhushala’, when he got Manna Dey to render this epic poem. The music director in him continued to trudge along –

manzil mile milena mile, mujhe is ka gham nahin
manzil ki justuju mein mera karvaan toh hai

Today’s song has been suggested by our dear Prakash ji, who has also sent in the lyrics. The film is ‘Amar Jyoti’ from 1984. Songwriter is Naqsh Lyallpuri and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. The song is an enchanting expression of the promises of love.

A tribute in the memory of this unsung genius, and a salaam with the words (from ‘Bhaavna’, 1972),

koi waada nahin hai mulaqaat ka
ye nazar hai magar muntazir aapki…


Song – Janam Janam Ka Hai Ye Naata  (Amar Jyoti) (1984) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Jaidev

Missing Films of 1960s – 38
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Just take a quick look at the still visual of the video panel below. I am so sure you will recognize this enchanting young face. Yes, it is Tabassum, way back from 1966. And that is not the only captivating thing about this song.

The debut film of today is ‘Zimbo Finds A Son’. In the long tradition of ‘Zambo / Zimbo’ films, this is the 1966 version. This film comes from the house of Basant Pictures. Regulars will be familiar that Basant Pictures is part of Wadia group. The famous Nadia and the erstwhile he-man John Cawas were the regular stars of the stunt films produced by Basant Pictures.

The film is directed by John Cawas. The star cast is led by Azaad and Tabassum, and it includes Sherry, Sundar, Dalpat, Raj Malik, Yunus, Pedro, Bismillah, Korega, Yadav, Samson, Ismail, Muhammad, Indira, Prince Arjun, Master Sachin, Mitthu Mian, Babu, Rani etc.

HFGK lists 5 songs for this film. All the songs are penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. The music is composed by the duo of Sapan Jagmohan. The availability of songs of this film is not an issue. All the five songs are quite available in audio, as well as in video format, as the original print of the filmi is very much available. Yes, Basant Pictures is a production house that has taken good care of their films.

When I heard the songs of this film in preparation for this post, I am hard put to select. All songs are quite wonderful and deserve better popularity. Today’s song is one such lilting loveable song – the singer is Asha Bhosle. The rendering is so zestful and so full of life. The words, the pace of the composition, the cheerful rendering – all come together so well. And they make the listener feel inside, the happiness that is being expressed by this song.

On screen, the song is performed by a very young, perky, sprightly and playful Tabassum. Her performance has so neatly captured the intent and the essence of the song. We also see Azaad in the clip, and we see a young boy, whose full face does not come in view of the camera. The list of actors includes the name of Master Sachin. It is possible this child actor can be Master Sachin, but I need confirmation help from other knowledgeable readers.

To mention – the list of Zimbo / Zambo films reads as follows

  1. Zambo, The Ape Man from 1937
  2. Zambo Ka Beta from 1939
  3. Zimbo from 1958
  4. Zimbo Ki Beti from 1959
  5. Zimbo Shehar Mein from 1960
  6. And this one – Zimbo Finds A Son, from 1966

Listen to this playful and energetic song that simply is oozing with happiness. And wonder, where have all these songs been, for so long a time.

Song – Gun Gun Gaaun Hawaa Mein Lehraaun  (Zimbo Finds A Son) (1966) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Recently the blog had been going slow as both our bosses were occupied by some work or the other, blog related, as well as occupational and personal. 🙂  Taking a clue from the number of posts on the blog and later on clarified by Atul ji himself (about the housekeeping of the blog), I had also almost stopped sending mails for new contributions, reminder for old ones and others.

It would be an interesting exercise, to do a series of songs, wherein one song is introduced through another song. So many times it happens, a song starts to play, and the mind automatically thinks of another song that expresses similar emotions. I am sure we will be able to list numerous such pairs. There is after all, only so many emotions that the human mind plays with. It is the poet’s mind that will express the same thought in a huge variety of combinations of words.

‘ख’
“खुली वादियों का सफर है”

Yesterday, 24th February, a living legend of Indian cinema turned 88.  From his pen have come such haunting songs as “Kho Diye, Hain Sanam, Teri Talaash Mein, Pichhle Kai Janam” (‘Teri Talaash Mein’, 1968), “Kai Sadiyon Se, Kai Janmon Se” (‘Milaap’, 1972), and such songs of love as “Main To Har Mod Par Us Ko Doonga Sadaa” (‘Chetna’, 1970), “Phir Milengi Kahaan, Aisi Tanhaaiyaan”, (‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Har Janam Mein Hamaara Milan” (‘Kaagaz Ki Naao’, 1975), and “Tumhe Ho Na Ho, Mujhko To, Itna Yakeen Hai” (‘Gharonda’, 1977). Starting his film career with the film ‘Jaggu’ in 1952, this poet of the off beat continues to be active on both the big and small screens.

Wishing a very happy birth anniversary to Naqsh Lyallpuri, and also wishing him many more healthy and poetical years still to come.

‘ऐ’
“ऐ जान ए बहारां रूह ए चमन”

Truly vintage Rafi. A song that brings to mind the times and the era of gentle romancing, and the soft songs of love. In the voice of Rafi Sb, these songs carry a heartfelt emotion that conveys a genuine feeling of love. It is a wonder that this song has so far not made it to the blog already.

In 1970s, alternative cinema was gaining strength where stories of real life common people was told, instead of telling make believe stories.
