Yesterday (31st July 2017) was the birthday of Mumtaz, one of Hindi cinema’s leading heroines in the early 70s.

Yesterday also happened to be the death anniversary of Rafisaab, and our posts were focussed on remembering him. So this post for Mumtaz is being posted a day late. Hopefully, if she is reading this, she won’t mind. 🙂

“Pardesi”(1970) was based on a Novel of the same name by Kushwah Kant, who was a prolific Hindi novelist. At least forty novels (may be more) written by him were published but sadly little information about him is available online. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on him.

Missing Films of 1960s – 29
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this post, I introduce another missing film from the 1960s. The film is ‘Khufia Mahal’ from 1964. As I checked out the songs of this film, I find some very lovable compositions. And why not. The music is from the mind of that one another unsung genius of that era – Pardesi. With a career that was limited to just four films, one sees him active from 1960 to 1972. And after that, lost in the dusks of anonymity. Nothing much more is available in terms of information, other than the 30+ songs he has created, some of which are real gems.

Today’s song is from film Pardesi-41. This was a Ranjit Movietone film, directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi and music by Khemchand Prakash.

Pardesi seems to be a popular Title for film producers Films with Pardesi title were produced in 1941, 1957, 1970 and 1993. Pardes was made in 1950 and 1997. Pardesi as a prefix to film titles were for 7 films. Pardesi-41 was a significant film for actress,singer Khursheed, because with this film, she became famous and came to be recognised as a singer. Earlier, she had worked in many films and also had sung songs, but Pardesi-41 music gave her such a turn in life that Chandulal Shah-the owner of Ranjit- decided to make her Saigal’s Heroine, whenever he would make a film with that king of melody. He was so much impressed with her singing style.

‘Phir milenge jaanewaale yaar dasvidaaniyaa…’

Some people contend that to say ‘good bye’ is to die a little. Readers may wonder why a post introducing a song should begin with this statement.
