Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I present here a repeat song that is quite different from the string of songs in this series so far. I shall begin by introducing the original song.

The original song is from the 1953 film – ‘Hamdard’. The song has been written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music composition is by Anil Biswas. The original song is in the voice of Manna Dey, and it is already posted on the blog a good eight years ago. That post can be viewed at “Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya”.

The repeat song, this time appearing in the film ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ from 1960. The song is the same, but for the latter film, it has been re-recorded. The music director of the latter film is Ravi. The second recording is different, both with regards to the composition, as well as the singing voice. The latter song has been recorded in the voice of Rafi Sb, in a tune that is quite different from the original.

In the latter film, only the mukhda of the song is present. The full song is not presented. It would be interesting to know whether the latter version of the song was recorded as a complete song, or only the lines that are actually present in the film.

So the repeat song has been re-recorded, using a different tune, and in a different voice. And it is only used partially. There surely are other instances in Hindi films, where snippets of songs from earlier films have been used partially. This case is interesting, in that it has been formally re-recorded, different voice, different tune. As far as I can check, it appears that this is the only instance of its kind, in the category of repeat songs.

Here is another very interesting anecdote about this song. There is actually another instance in Hindi films, where these lines appear, albeit equally briefly. The film is ‘Teesri Manzil’ from 1966. The scenario is played out as follows.

The location is again the restaurant of the hotel. Shammi Kapoor, or Rocky, (also Anil) has just finished singing the song – “Tumne Mujhe Dekha Ho Kar Meharbaan”. He is on the seventh heaven, considering that Asha Parekh, or Sunita has come to his performance of this song. Little does he know that the letter that was supposed to reach her the previous evening has just been delivered to her in the restaurant. Of course, knowing the truth, Sunita is livid at the deception played by Anil. And Anil, on the seventh heaven, has completed the song and launches into a monologue, telling the audience, how lucky he is having found love. He reaches the table where Sunita is sitting, and she is in tears. Continuing the monologue, Anil reaches out for her hand, and starts to speak these lines –

Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya
Ke Chirag Raah Mein Jal Gaye. . .

The unexpected next instant is a shock, as Sunita pulls back her hand and lands a resounding slap on Anil’s cheek.

So a very interesting set of appearances these lines make – from 1953 to 1960 to 1966.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, on his 40th remembrance day.

This snippet also brings back memories of another great performer – Kumkum, who passed away on 28th July, three days ago. In the closing minutes of this film, she makes a decision and leaves her home, to follow the person she loves, no matter that person is a dishonest conman.

Song – Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya  (Tu Nahin Aur Sahi) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Ravi
[Note: The music director for the original tune in ‘Hamdard’ is Anil Biswas.]

Lyrics

tera haath haath mein aa gaya
ke chiraag raah mein jal gaye
mujhe sehal ho gayin manzilen
wo hawa ke rulh bhi badal gaye

tera haath haath mein aa gaya

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया
के चिराग़ राह में जल गए
मुझे सेहल हो गईं मंज़िलें
वो हवा के रुख भी बादल गए

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 37
—————————————————————————

The blog saw only two posts on this day ten years ago on 19 june 2010. In contrast, today (19 june 2020) saw two posts getting published simultaneously early morning at 5 AM ! And this is going to be the third post for the day !

The two songs discussed on the blog on 19.06.2010 were:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Saat samundar paar ke … gudiyon ke bazaar se Taqdeer-1967 All songs covered
Zulfon ki sunahri chhaaon tale Zindagi Yaa Toofaan- 1958 08 of 10 songs posted

“Taqdeer”(1967) has already been YIPPEED. “Zindagi Ya Toofaan”(1958) had made its debut ten years ago. This movie was produced and directed by Nakshab. The movie had Nutan, Pradeep Kumar, Johnny Walkar, Om Prakash, Yakub, Minoo Mumtaz, Lotan, Sangeeta, Amar, Shakeel, Vikram Kapoor, Nazirbai, Qaisarbai, Sagar, H.Prakash, Jagoo, Dayabai, Indira, Jaffri, Suresh(Guest Artist) etc in it.

“Zindagi Ya Toofaan”(1958) had ten songs in it. Eight songs have been covered in the past. Here are the songs from the movie that have been covered so far :-

Two songs from “Zindagi Yaa Toofaan”(198) are left. Our regular contributors were threatening to send a song on the occasion of blog ten year challenge and I was dreading that they should not send the “wrong” song. Fortunately our contributors, viz Prakashchandra and Avinash Scrapwala have sent the “right” song for the occasion. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Talat Mehmood. Nakshab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naashaad.

The song is picturised on Nutan and Pradeep Kumar.

With this song, nine songs out of ten are covered in the blog. The one song left in the blog is a special song (one that I was hoping was not sent for today’s occasion), which I will cover at an opportune date (already identified). The lyrics of this song are already sent to me.

Hullo Atuldom

Often when I read the title of some posts i.e. the name of the song associated with the post, I recollect some other song, may be of a different era. This has happened a number of times. Same goes with movie titles too. There are many movie titles that have been repeated over the years and our in-house encyclopedia, Sudhirji and Atulji have written a few posts regarding the same i.e. about titles that have been repeated.

As I was preparing this post I just googled the title “Bandhan” and I found it has been used about 17 times in TV and movie productions language and country no-bar – found a movie by this title in Bangladeshi cinema too (referred imdb.com). Looks like this is a favorite title of Bengali producers who make entertainment material- there is a drama too with the title “Bandhan” (got this too from imdb.com). Of course we do have movies which have words preceding or following “Bandhan” in their titles- “Bandhan Kachche Dhaagon ka”, “Prem Bandhan”, “Bandhan Anjana” etc etc.

But let us concentrate on Hindi movies. We have four movies with the title “Bandhan” in 1940, 1956, 1969 & 1998.

“Bandhan” (1940) had Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis in the lead, was directed by N.R. Acharya and was a Bombay Talkies production. It had music by Saraswati Devi and Ramchandra Pal. It had 11 songs 7 by Saraswati Devi and 4 by Ramchandra Pal and all the songs are posted on the blog.

“Bandhan” (1956) was directed by Hemchandra Chunder (info from imdb.com), produced by D.K. Sarkar, had Pradeep Kumar- Meena Kumari- Motilal playing main characters and had music by Hemant Kumar. The blog has 2 out of its 7 songs.

“Bandhan” (1969) directed by Narendra Bedi and produced by G.P.Sippy had Rajesh Khanna- Mumtaz- Anju Mahendroo and had music by Kalyanji Anandji. This movie had 5 songs and 4 are on the blog. Sanjeev Kumar had a special appearance in this “Bandhan”.

All these movies are present on the blog. “Bandhan” (1998) directed by K. Muralimohan Rao had Jackie Shroff- Salman Khan- Ashwini Bhave- Rambha and was produced by Narendra Bajaj. Anand raj Anand and Himesh Reshammiya were the music directors. This movie is yet to debut on the blog and it has some good songs.

16th June 2020 is the 100th birthdate of the legendary music director Hemant Kumar Mukherjee. He was born in Varanasi in the house of his maternal grandfather who was a physician. He is said to have grownup in the Bhawanipore area of Calcutta. His first recorded song was in 1935 for All India Radio. His first disc (non-film) was for the Columbia label in 1937 and the 1941 released Bengali film “Nimai Sanyas” had his first film song. His first Hindi film song was under Pt. Amarnath’s music direction in the 1944 release “Iraada”. Hemantda (as he was addressed affectionately) was one of the foremost exponents of Rabindra Sangeet. His first as a music director was the 1947 release “Abhiyatri” in Bengali. A detailed biography of Hemantda has been done by the stalwarts of the blog in a few posts in the past and I am not an authority on Hemantda.

The statistics page of the blog tells me that Hemantda has given music in 55 Hindi movies with a total of 417 songs of these the blog has 290 songs; also he has sung 322 songs of which the blog has 204 song. That means we have covered 50% of Hemantda as music director and about 75% as singer on the blog.

Today on his birth centenary we shall have one more which has been sung by him too. He also happens to be the music director. The song is written by Rajinder Krishan. On screen it is performed by Pradeep Kumar who is going around preaching that it is ‘good to be human’ and follow the ‘jiyo aur jeene do’ policy. He is accompanied by Asit Sen who is in awe. I don’t know if I am the only one who feels this- Hemant Kumar’s voice was tailor-made for Pradeep Kumar.

Remembering Hemant Kumar on his birth centenary.


Song-Jo milna hai Bhagwaan se (Bandhan)(1956) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

jo milna hai bhagwaan se ae
toh mil pehle insaan se ae
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se
toh mil pehle insaan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se ae

jhoothhe bhed ke bandhan
aur yeh oonch neech ki deewaarein
jhoothhe bhed ke bandhan
aur yeh oonch neech ki deewaarein
prabhu se kaise milne dengi
tujhe beech ki deewaarein
toone khud mushkil kar daale
yeh raste aasaan se
toone khud mushkil kar daale
yeh raste aasaan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se

laakh chatur tu bane magar
woh sabse bada sayaana hai
laakh chatur tu bane magar
woh sabse bada sayaana hai
apna aap chhupaa kar
bunta jag ka taana baana hai
chaturaai na bhaaye usey
woh pyaar kare anjaan se
chaturaai na bhaaye usey
woh pyaar kare anjaan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagawan se

uska hona hai jo tujhko
bandon ka tu ho ja
apna aap mita de moorakh
aur usi mein kho ja
uska hona hai jo tujhko
bandon ka tu ho ja
apna aap mita de moorakh
aur usi mein kho ja
neecha kar woh kaam nikaale
jo nikle na maan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se
toh mil pehle insaan se
kaise darshan dega maalik
bin poochhe darbaan se
jo milna hai bhagwaan se ae

koi na khaali jaata hai insaan

aankhon ne jab jyothi paayi
chhaayaa hai andhiyaaraa

aashaa ko bhi niraashaa aa
kunwaa paas tu phir bhi pyaasaa
kunwaa paas tu phir bhi pyaasaa

soch zaraa o moorakh bande

dhoondh le mann ka chain yahin par
yahi hai tera thikaanaa
yahaan bhi tooti aas to jag mein
degaa kaun dilaasaa
kunwaa paas tu phir bhi pyaasaa
kunwaa paas tu phir bhi pyaasaa

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 40

Hullo to Atuldom

Today is a unique happy birthday date. It is not any celebrity’s birthday. It is the birthdate of our beloved blog Atul-song-a-day which has been nicknamed ASAD and all of its followers are called Atulites.

This is one blog which has brought together a lot of Hindi film music lovers from across the world. It must have started as a one-man’s passion for film music but has now become an addiction for a set of music lovers who are equally passionate about Hindi film music. People who have associated themselves with the blog are going to great lengths to find hitherto unheard songs, finding about the life-stories of those associated with those songs etc. We have our own in-house encyclopaedia who has put a lot of time into researching about long forgotten artists, singers, musicians, and also cleared confusion about artist who had same or similar names and were popular about the same period etc. We have an NRA (Non Resident Atulite) who has assigned Sudhir ji a job of finding movies of the 60s’ decade that were lost or forgotten and Sudhir ji has done a great job of finding at least 112 such movies with about 79 left and these may be really unavailable otherwise he would have dug them out too. In addition to this, he has an ongoing series of songs which were reused in movies and I am sure that will give us a minimum of 50 songs.

Sudhir ji and Arunkumar ji (the encyclopaedia) are just two examples of dedicated contributors. We have others whose craze for Hindi film music has been manifested in the form of reading through the “ancient” 😉 issues of Film-India magazine and sharing knowledge gathered from there with us on the blog. Then there is the case of two resident NRAs who collaborate to produce posts to remember their favourite Sahir on his birth and death anniversaries. Of course, one NRA is more active than the other who I expect will surface in the last week of July as the anniversary of his and our favourite Mohd. Rafi is coming up and his activity will continue on to first week of August. (Hope I am not proved wrong) Of course there are those contributors who surface on the really important celebratory occasion of the blogs’ 15000th post, Atulji’s personal 10000, and birthdays of their personal favourite singers Mukesh, Shamshad Begum etc. I must make special mention of the behind the scene contributor who sees to it that the links of songs posted are working links in addition to sending his farmaishes in the form of lyrics.  So Atuldom is a kingdom of a group with varied interests in HFM and who have their own way of making the blog a unique space in cyberland.

As far as my own film music addiction is concerned, I have mentioned many a times how this blog has affected my way of listening to songs. How I have learnt about the life and times of the singers, actors, music directors, and others associated with movie making. And the most important take-away from this blog is a whole new set of friends who are always in touch 24/7 and who receive my phone-calls with a smile (I can feel it in their “Hello”). But I had an altogether different experience the last time I called Sudhir ji; my “hullo Sudhir ji” was met by a good two minute of laughter, such is the camaraderie that he knew exactly what I was going to say. 😊

For all of the above a big thank you to the blog and the blog master Atul. It is only because Atul ji started the blog on 19th July 2008 that we can call ourselves Atulites or Atulwaasis, who are residents of Atuldom.

Exactly a year after it was born, Atulji posted six songs on 19th July 2009. These represented six movies: two from 1969, and one each of 1956, 1954, 1953 and 1949. Of the movies that these songs were from only one is left to be yyippeed!! That is ‘Sambandh’ of 1969. It has 5 songs posted on the blog, out of a possible 11 or 12 , the last being posted in October of 2011. That is a loooong time ago.

So, to take ‘Sambandh’ a step forward we re-visit it today. The movie was produced by Ram Mukherjee; directed by Ajoy Biswas; had Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar for playback singers for songs written by Kavi Pradeep and composed by OP Nayyar. Atul ji has said in one of the previous posts of the songs of this movie that this was an unusual combination- OP Nayyar setting Kavi Pradeep’s words to tune. This movie had Pradeep Kumar and Deb Mukherjee heading the cast which also had Anjana (this was her debut) Sulochana Latkar, Anita Dutt (looks like Anita Guha, must have been Dutt at that time), Achala Sachdev, Vijaya Chaudhary, Abhi Bhattacharya, Nana Palshikar, Leela Mishra, etc.

The synopsis as given on IMDB is:

Manav Chatterjee’s childhood is spent in a wealthy home where his father, Umakant, is an alcoholic, and his mother a simple housewife, who tries in vain to get his dad to give up on alcohol. This results in differences between his parents, leading to their separation, and him leaving the house to be with his mother. Manav grows up as a cynic, and this cynicism increases when he goes to live with a foster and a very wealthy family. He marries Hiralal’s daughter, Sandhya, and both love each other deeply. But things do not seem to go Manav’s way at all, as he is separated from Sandhya, and after several months finds out that Hirala is about to get Sandhya married – again. Now Manav has changed his name, and is being helped by an unknowing Umakant to try and salvage, what possibly remains, of the rest of this bitter and lonely life.

Here is the list of songs posted this-date-that-year as is the practice in the Ten-Year Challenge,

Gore Gore Mukhde Pe Gesoo Jo Chhaa Gaye Patanga

1949

Bujh Gaye Aasha Ke Diye…Badle Rang Jahaan Ke Shikast

1953

Dil Se Milaa Ke Dil Pyaar Kijiye Taxi Driver

1954

Dil Dil Se Milaakar Dekho Mem Sahib

1956

Apni Maata Ke Dulaare Bachche Sambandh

1969

Saathiyaan Nahin Jaana Ke Ji Na Lage Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke

1969

Hindigeetmala.net (my personal HFGK) lists 12 songs for ‘Sambandh’ of which we have 5 on the blog. Of the twelve, six songs have Asha Bhonsle giving playback, one being a duet with Hemant Kumar. It is difficult to find videos of all the songs that are left to be posted, only audios are available on youtube. Another thing I found was almost all the songs were rather sombre or completely sad. Would love to see the movie to understand why the mood of the songs are so.  And as Atul ji has previously said this is a rather unusual OP Nayyar album with not one peppy number. So, choosing from what is available, here is the Hemant Kumar – Asha song which is a prayer and I would like to know on whom it was filmed.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASAD!!!!!
Thank you Atul ji for giving us ASAD.

There is still a lot of songs left in the ocean of HFM for us to find gems, pearls and corals.

P.S. after writing the post I ran through the movie to see who has lip synced the song. I found that the Hemant Kumar part is no where in the movie and Anita Dutt has lip-synced the Asha Bhonsle part.

Editor’s note-With this song, Hemant Kumar completes 200 songs in the blog as a playback singer.

अब सुख दो
सब अवगुण मेरे करो क्षमा
प्रभु करो क्षमा
प्रभु करो क्षमा
हे जगत पिता परमात्मा

आss आsss
आss आsss

तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

मिलते हैं किसी को बिन मांगे ही मोती
ओ ओ ओ
कोई मांगे भी तो भीख नसीब ना होती
ओ ओ ओ
क्या सोच के है मालिक ने रची
ये दो रंगी तस्वीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

कुछ किस्मत वाले सुख से अमृत पीते
ओ ओ ओ
कुछ दिल पर रख कर पत्थर जीवन जीते
ओ ओ ओ
कहीं मन पंछी आकाश उड़े
कहीं पाँव पड़ी ज़ंजीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

Missing Films of 1960s – 90
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

What a wonderful gem of a song this one is. The memory banks hold this from the radio listening days. Such a beautiful semi-classical creation, and also very popular in its time – I am amazed it has waited so long in the wings to make its place here on our blog.

The film is ‘Harishchandra Taramati’ from 1970. It is produced under the banner of Kala Mandal, Bombay and is directed by BK Adarsh. Star cast of this film is listed as Pradeep Kumar, Jaimala, Boby, BM Vyas, Jeevan, Shyama, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Bela Bose, Bipin Gupta, Helen, Madhumati, Jaishri Talpade, Tuntun, Sapru, Manorama, and Mehmood (Junior) etc.

The seven songs of this film are all written by Virendra Mishra and the music is created by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. The singing voice in this song is Lata ji, supported by chorus.

As I am checking the films from 1970, I came across this film, but it did not ring any bells at first. The mind is more familiar with the other film of same name from 1963, whose songs are penned by Kavi Pradeep. But then, as I checked the list of songs in this film, the mind sat up with a jerk when I read the title line of this song. All I could think of then was – WOW.

This song is such an exquisite creation, and such a pleasurable experience to listen. The opening verses simply capture the heart,

rimim jhimimwa
suno balamwa
naram garam hui saram
jhuke nainwa

For reference purposes, I checked the Raag-o-Pedia compiled by Shri KL Pandey. The listing informs us that this song is composed using three Raags – Bhairavi, Khamaaj and Malkauns.

As I started this post day before yesterday, I did not have access to the video of this song. Keen to know on whom this song is picturized, I started searching for this film. It turned out that although this film is more recent vintage than similar named films from 1952 and 1963, yet this one is more rare in terms of availability. After some messages exchanged with my other collector friends, I was able to secure the video clip of this song from one of them. The clip is not of good quality; it appears that it has been extracted from a VHS tape that has been over used. I have now uploaded this clip. Despite the poor quality, one can make out that this dance song is filmed on Helen, and a group of supporting dancers, and that Pradeep Kumar is the sole audience of this performance.

In the film, Pradeep Kumar plays the lead role of Raja Harishchandra. Sage Vishwamitra, who is jealous of his fame of truthfulness and righteousness, resolves to test the limits of Harishchandra’s good attributes. As the first step, he sends Menaka, the apsara from swarg lok to woo and enchant Harishchandra. Regulars will recall that Menaka is the same apsara whom Indra, the king of swarg lok, had sent to disturb the penance and meditation of Vishwamitra. In that episode, Vishwamitra had lost the battle, and was swayed by Menaka’s enchanting beauty. Now, he sends the very same apsara to sway the sensibility of Harishchandra. In the film, this episode is presented as a dream sequence.

Just listen to this song, as it makes its way through multiple ragas, all coming together for such a perfect listening experience. A wonderful re-discovery.

Today’s song is from film ‘Ek Shola’ (1958). It is sung by Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt. The lyricist was Majrooh Sultanpuri and the music director was Madan Mohan. The film was produced by Deep and Pradeep Productions –  a joint venture of Deep Khosla and Pradeep Kumar. The film was directed by Chander Sehgal. Not much is known about Chander Sehgal, except that he directed only 2 films – ‘Ek Shola’ and ‘Mitti Mein Sona’ (1960). He died on 29-5-1960. The cast of the film is Pradeep Kumar, Mala Sinha, Jawahar Kaul, Leela Mishra, Nazir Hussain, Shubha Khote etc.

In Hindi films, there have been three actors who were very handsome and very lucky but zero in acting – Karan Dewan, Pradeep Kumar and Bharat Bhushan. They all appeared in leading roles opposite all leading actresses of their times. They had the best films, best songs and best roles. Karan Dewan had about 25 Silver Jubilees to his credit and was considered a lucky star. Bharat Bhushan had the most musical films to his credit like ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952), ‘Shabaab’ (1954) and ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954) etc. Pradeep Kumar had ‘Anarkali’ (1953) and ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963).

All three had their brothers producing films for them. Gemini Dewan made films for Karan Dewan, R. Chandra made films for Bharat Bhushan and Kalidas for Pradeep Kumar. Unfortunately, in later years, all three lost everything and died in poverty and neglectful anonymity. Karan Dewan was a manager with BR Chopra’s production company. When he died no one came for his funeral except for Chandrashekhar and Manmohan Krishan from the Cine Artist’s Association. Bharat Bhushan even worked as a watchman in a film studio, in his last days. He too died unsung and only the men from the Association were present at the cremation.

Pradeep Kumar’s case is the saddest. He lay seriously ill in the ICU of a Calcutta nursing home, abandoned by his relatives. The hospital was not discharging him, unless the bills were paid. Luckily one Mr. Pradeep Kondaliya, an estate agent, recognised him, despite his grown beard. He paid the huge outstanding bill of the hospital and took Pradeep Kumar to his home, where he passed away after a few days. He was cremated by his fan. Such is the film industry – cruel and ruthless, where the recognition lasts only till one is successful, and even close relatives desert you in bad times.

Pradeep Kumar aka Sital Batabyal was born on 4 January 1925. When he was 17 years old, he started as assistant cameraman. Later he decided to take up acting. He started his film career in Bengali films. His notable roles in Bengali films were in ‘Alaknanda‘ (1947), directed by renowned filmmaker Debaki Bose, and in ’42 (1951). It was Debki Bose, who gave him the filmy name Pradeep Kumar.

Pradeep Kumar  then shifted to Bombay and Filmistan studios, and had an important role in the film ‘Anand Math (1952). He played the lead role with Bina Rai in ‘Anarkali’ (1953) and with Vyjayanthimala in ‘Nagin’ (1954). Both films were very popular and had songs that added to the movies’ success. He had a spate of releases in the second half of the 1950s. He did not enjoy as much success in the 1960s, though ‘Ghoonghat’ (1960), ‘Aarti’ (1962) & ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963) were successful. He worked with Meena Kumari in seven films; ‘Adil-E-Jahangir’, ‘Bandhan’ (1956), ‘Chitralekha’, ‘Bahu Begum’, ‘Bheegi Raat’, ‘Aarti’ and ‘Noorjehan’; and with Mala Sinha in eight films; ‘Naya Zamana’, ‘Hamlet’, ‘Baadshah’, ‘Detective’ (1958 movie), ‘Fashion’ (1959 film), ‘Ek Shola’, ‘Duniya Na Maane’, and ‘Mitti Mein Sona’.

He did not get to act in lead roles with the newer heroines of the 1960s such as Sadhana, Saira Banu, Babita or Sharmila Tagore, though he did work with Asha Parekh in ‘Ghoonghat’ and ‘Meri Surat Teri Aankhen and with Waheeda Rehman in ‘Raakhi (1963). In 1969, he moved to character roles with ‘Sambandh’ and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’, but did not have many visible roles till ‘Jaanwar’ and ‘Razia Sultan’ in 1983.

He won the Kalakar Award-Lifetime Achievement Award (1999).

Pradeep Kumar died in Calcutta on 27 October 2001, at the age of 76. He is survived by his daughters Reena, Meena and Beena Banerjee who plays character roles in movies and TV serials including ‘Uttaran’, son Debiprasad and granddaughters Tanisha, Suparna, Riya and Hrishita. Beena Banerjee’s son Siddharth Banerjee worked as assistant director in Sajid Khan’s ‘Housefull 2’ (2012) and ‘Himmatwala’ (2013).

Mala Sinha was an educated, hard working actress. Though she worked with leading banners and was heroine to well known heroes, she was never counted among the class I heroines of her times. She worked with many newcomers, like Dharmendra etc. Her career spanned a long time but she never got a single Filmfare Award, though nominated 4 times.

Mala Sinha was born in a Bengali Nepalese Christian family in Calcutta, on 11-11-1936. Mala Sinha claimed herself a Bengali descent Nepali many years ago in a TV interview Her parents named her Alda. Her friends at school used to tease her by calling her Dalda (a brand of vegetable oil), so she changed her name to Mala. In her childhood she learnt dancing and singing. Although she was an approved singer of All India Radio, she has never done playback singing in films. But as a singer she has done stage shows in many languages from 1947 to 1975.

Mala started her career as child artist in Bengali films ‘Jai Vaishno Devi’ followed by ‘Shri Krishan Leela’, ‘Jog Biyog’ and ‘Dhooli’. Noted Bengali director Ardhendu Bose saw her acting in a school play and took permission from her father to cast her as a heroine in his film ‘Roshanara’ (1952) – Bangla film, her cinematic debut.

After acting in a couple of films in Calcutta, Mala had to go to Bombay for a Bengali film. There she met Geeta Bali, a noted Bollywood actress, who was charmed by her and introduced her to film director Kidar Sharma. It was Sharma who cast her as a heroine in his ‘Rangeen Ratein‘ (1956). Her first Hindi film was ‘Baadshah’ (1954) opposite Pradeep Kumar. Then came ‘Ekadashi’ (1955), a mythological film. Both failed, but her lead role in Kishore Sahu’s ‘Hamlet’ (1954), paired opposite Pradeep Kumar, fetched her rave reviews in spite of it failing at the box office. Films like ‘Lai Batti’ (ac­tor Balraj Sahni’s only directorial venture), ‘Nausherwan-E-Adil’ where she starred as the fair maiden Marcia in Sohrab Modi’s romance about forbidden love and ‘Phir Subah Hogi’, which was direc­tor Ramesh Saigal’s adapta­tion of Dosteovsky’s novel Crime and Punishment, established Mala Sinha’s reputation as a versatile actress who took the maximum career risks by accepting unconventional roles.

Mala was a singer of some repute and used to sing for All India Radio; she was not allowed to sing playback (even for herself) in the movies with the lone exception being 1972’s ‘Lalkar’. In the 1950s, she had string of hits opposite Pradeep Kumar like ‘Fashion’ (1957), ‘Detective’ (1958), ‘Duniya Na Maane’ (1959) though their first two ventures had failed. The films she did with Pradeep Kumar were men-oriented. In 1957, noted Bollywood actor and film director Guru Dutt (the husband of Geeta Dutt) cast Mala in his film ‘Pyaasa‘ (1957) in a role originally intended for Madhubala. Mala gave a memorable performance as the relatively unsympa­thetic part of an ambitious woman who chooses to marry a rich man (played by actor Rehman) and have a loveless marriage rather than a poor, unsuccessful poet and her impoverished lover (played by Guru Dutt) whom she ditches. ‘Pyaasa‘ remains to this day a classic in the history of Indian cinema and a turning point for Mala Sinha.

After ‘Pyaasa’ her major success were ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958) and Yash Chopra’s directorial debut ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959) that elevated her into a major dramatic star. There was no looking back for Sinha then as she was part of many successful movies from 1958 to the early ’60s like ‘Parvarish’ (1958), ‘Ujaala’,’ Main Nashe Main Hoon’, ‘Duniya Na Maane’, ‘Love Marriage’ (1959), ‘Bewaqoof’ (1960), ‘Maya’ (1961), ‘Hariyali Aur Rasta’ and ‘Dil Tera Deewana’ (1962), ‘Anpadh’, ‘Bombay Ka Chor’ (1962). Critics believe her career best performance was in ‘Bahurani’ (1963), ‘Gumrah’, ‘Gehra Daag’, ‘Apne Huye Paraaye’ and ‘Jahan Ara’. Apart from pairing with Pradeep Kumar, her pairing opposite Raaj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Biswajit and Manoj Kumar in woman-oriented films were appreciated by audiences, with her films opposite Biswajit being the most popular.  She did 10 films with Biswajit. In 2007, they won the Star Screen Lifetime Achievement Award, calling them on stage together giving due respect to their popularity as a pair who have tasted box office success.

The most remarkable feature of career of Mala Sinha was that most of her 1960s and 1970s hits were fueled by her own star power as much as the heroes and most of the times her role was more powerful than the hero. Though she was pitted opposite her seniors like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Kishore Kumar, Pradeep Kumar and when she acted opposite the emerging stars from late 1950s like Shammi Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar and Raaj Kumar, she made sure her role was as good as theirs.

In 1966, Sinha went to Nepal to act in a Nepali film called ‘Maitighar when the Nepali film industry was still in its infancy. This was the only Nepali film she did in her career. Her hero in the film was an estate owner called Chidambar Prasad Lohani. Soon after, Mala Sinha married CP Lohani with the blessings of her parents. From the beginning theirs was a long-distance marriage with Lohani based in Kathmandu to look after his business and Sinha living in Bombay with their daughter Pratibha. She continued acting after her marriage.

From 1974, she cut down on her assignments as the lead actresses. She accepted strong character roles in films like ’36 Ghante (1974), ‘Zindagi‘ (1976), ‘Karmayogi (1978), ‘Be-Reham’ (1980), ‘Harjaee’ (1981), ‘Yeh Rishta Na Tootay’, ‘Babu’ (film) and ‘Khel’, which were popular.

In the early ’90s Madhuri Dixit was promoted as new Mala Sinha in magazines. But, after 1994, she completely withdrew from industry and has given very few public appearances. In ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ and BR Chopra’s ‘Gumrah’, she played the first unwed mother and adulterous wife respectively in Hindi cinema. As she grew older, she gracefully moved on to doing character roles that befitted her age. She was last seen in ‘Zid’ (1994). Though Mala Sinha evinced as much interest in her daughter Pratibha’s career as her father did in her career, she was unable to achieve the same success for her daughter. (Adapted from wiki).

Mala Sinha came from Calcutta to make a career in Bombay films. In Calcutta she worked in a Bilingual film ‘Chitrangada’ (1954) in Bangla and Hindi. In 1954 again, she did her first film in Bombay, ‘Baadshah’ (1954), then came ‘Hamlet’ (1954), ‘Riyaasat’ (1955) and ‘Ekadashi’ (1955).

In all her interviews, Mala Sinha always quoted ‘Rangeen Raten’ (1956) with Shammi Kapoor as her first film in Bombay. She was ashamed of revealing that in film ‘Riyaasat’ (1955), her Hero was Mahipal and in film ‘Ekadashi’ it was Trilok Kapoor. She always hid this fact. There are many heroines who want to hide their struggling days. For example, in film ‘Professor’ (1962) Shammi Kapoor’s heroine was Kalpana. Though touted as her first film, her first film was ‘Pyar Ki Jeet-62’, opposite Mahipal – a fact which Kalpana always hid from everyone.

Similarly, A grade heroine Meena Kumari also had done several mythological and costume films before ‘Baiju Bawra’ took her high up and above other heroines. Films like ‘Veer Ghatotkach’ (1949), ‘Shri Ganesh Mahima’ (1950), ‘Laxmi Narayan’ (1951), ‘Hanuman Paataal Vijay’ (1951) and ‘Alladin aur Jadui Chirag’ (1953) had Mahipal as her Hero. In her later years, she always hid her earlier film Heroes.

Even comedian Johnny walker, who is supposed to have made a beginning with ‘Baazi’ (1951), had earlier worked in ‘The Last Message’ or ‘Aakhri Paigham’ (1949). However this fact is not told by anyone.

Not only actors, but even singers do this. They hesitate to tell that the first sang for C grade films. Take the case of Sudha Malhotra, who used to declare ‘Arzoo’ (1950) as her first film, under Anil Biswas. But she never told that earlier she had sung 3 songs in film ‘Aakhri Paigham’ (1949), under the baton of Abid Hussein Khan, composer.

It is very unfortunate that once the artiste becomes famous, he tends to forget his humble beginning with less known film or a composer. This is because they are ashamed of it. I feel the blame also goes to people who take their interview, because the interview takers do not do proper homework. Many times they do not know anything and simply note down whatever is told by the artiste.

There were 8 songs in the film ‘Ek Shola’. 3 songs are already discussed. This is the 4th song. It is a long song, recorded on one side each of 78 rpm record nos. N-52832 and 52833). We present here the full song covering both sides.

मम्मम मम्ममम मम्मम
मम्म मम्म मम्म मम्म मम्म मम्म मम्ममममम

चंदा से भी प्यारा है
अखिओं का तारा है
दिल का सहारा मेरा लाड़ला
चंदा से भी प्यारा है
अखिओं का तारा है
दिल का सहारा मेरा लाड़ला

घटा का साया है ज़िंदगी
इधर से आई उधर चली
रुके ना जीवन की बांसुरी
हाए॰॰ अपनी धुन में गा

खुशी से सागर जल छलके
पकड़ चले दिल संभाल के
कहें तरंगें मचल के
ज़रा मौज में लहरा हाए॰॰
खुशी से सागर जल छलके
पकड़ चले दिल संभाल के
कहें तरंगें मचल के
ज़रा मौज में लहरा हाए॰॰
घटा का साया है ज़िंदगी
इधर से आई उधर चली
रुके ना जीवन की बांसुरी
हाए॰॰ अपनी धुन में गा

चंदा से भी प्यारा है
अखिओं का तारा है
दिल का सहारा मेरा लाड़ला॰॰आ॰॰आ

जब मेरा नन्हा छइयाँ छइयाँ
ठुमक ठुमक डोले
टूक टूक ताके
झुक झुक झाँके
गुड़िया घूँघट खोले
जब मेरा नन्हा छइयाँ छइयाँ
ठुमक ठुमक डोले
टूक टूक ताके
झुक झुक झाँके
गुड़िया घूँघट खोले
हो गुड्डे सा दुलारा है
अखिओं का तारा है
दिल का सहारा मेरा लाड़ला॰॰आ॰॰आ

घटा का साया है ज़िंदगी
इधर से आई उधर चली
रुके ना जीवन की बांसुरी
हाए॰॰ अपनी धुन में गा

जो मस्तीओं में जीए हैं
उसे ना ?? ?? ??
ये राज़ तेरे लिए है मगर
तू नहीं समझा हाए॰॰
जो मस्तीओं में जीए हैं

“Kaaghaz Ki Naao” (1975) was produced and directed by BR Ishara for BRI Arts, Bombay. The movie had Sarika and Raj Kiran (making their debuts as lead actors in grown up roles). The movie also had Pradeep Kumar, Aruna Irani, Helen, IS Johar, Paaro, Johnny Whisky, Dileep Dutt, Shyam Dubey, Amal Sen, Hamid, Asha Sharma, Rajni Verma, Hardeep, Maniyar, Arbind Dasgupta, Manhar Desai, Asit Sen, Manmohan Krishan, Reena Ghosh, Master Mitthoo etc. in it.

There were four songs in the movie. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the three songs already covered in the blog:-

Here is the fourth and final song from “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song is picturised as a mujra song on Aruna Irani and Pradeep Kumar.

With this song, “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

This song marks an “artificial”, but significant century for the blog. “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) becomes the 1100th movie that has been YIPPEED in the blog. To put things in perspective, 1100 movies constitutes some one fifth of all the movies that were released from 1931 till 1980. These 1100 movies had nearly 7100 songs in them, viz. 50 % of all the songs covered in the blog.

While some movies are easy to YIPPEE, if all their songs are all time classics and so readily available, majority of movies are such that at least one or two of their songs are rare and obscure. Searching for these songs can be a tall order. There are cases where the missing songs are not even available online. There are several instances where the missing songs of these movies had to be uploaded and made available online for the first time by us (read by Sudhir Ji).

One benefit of YIppying a movie is that we no longer have to search for songs of that movie. We can forget about these movies and concentrate of movies that are as yet unyippeed.

To take the example of the year 1959, 1959 saw as many as 114 movies getting released. 103 of these movies are represented in the blog. As many as 47 of these movies are already YIPPEED. This is the highest number of YIPPEED movies from one calender year. So in effect, now we only have to search for missing songs from 56 + 11 movies of 1959.

“Rajnigandha”(1974) was the first movie to be YIPPEED in the blog on 10 september 2008. We were not even aware of this fact on that date. 🙂 It was the only YIPPEED movie during 2008. 2009 saw another 8 movies getting YIPPEED. It is from 2012 that we consciously started thinking on YIPPYing movies. More that 10 movies each are being YIPPEED since 2012. As many as 202 movies were YIPPEED in 2013, which is the highest number of movies YIPPEED in a year.

This year 2018 has seen us YIPPYIng at least one movie every day. Till now we have YIPPEED 66 movies in 65 days of the year. We were on a similar new year resolution during the last year of 2017 as well. On that year we posted one YIPPEE every day till 5 may 2017, viz for 125 days, when that steak got broken on 6 may 2017. Let us see how long our unbroken streak of 2018 lasts. 🙂

The blog at present has songs from 3858 movies and we are adding one extra movie every day (which is another new year resolution with us). My guess is that all the songs may be available for around 2000 movies. It may not be possible for other movies to get YIPPEED because all songs of these movies are not available.

Time will show whether I am proved right or otherwise vis a vis final tally of YIPPEED movies in the blog. For now, let us celebrate having the 1100th YIPPEED movie in the blog.


Song-Na jaiyyo re sautan ghar sainyya (Kaaghaz ki Naao)(1975) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

na jaiyo re ae
sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re ae

jaadu bhi jaane wo tona bhi jaane
najariya se dil ko pirona bhi jaane
hans ke mile door hona bhi jaane
hans ke mile door hona bhi jaane
tu hi na maane
na maane ae ae
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
na jaiyo re ae sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re ae

tan se lubhaaye
adaaon se loote
pal mein vo maane to pal mein hi roothhe
bairan ke hote hain sab roop jhoothe
bairan ke hote hai sab roop jhoothe
tu hi na jaane na jaane ae ae
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re ae ae ae

“Raakhi” (1962) was produced by Siva H Ganeshan and directed by a Bhimsingh for Prabhuram Pictures, Madras. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Waheeda Rehman, Pradeep Kumar, Mehmood, Ameeta, Malika, Lalita Pawar, Raj Mehra, Randhir, Madan Puri, Shivraj, Mohan Choti, Umesh Sharma etc in it.

This archtypically melodramatic movie had one theme song dedicated to the festival of Rakhi, but other songs from the movie were apparently all wedding songs of different nature- viz from the point of view of the bride, from the point of view of the sister in law etc.

Here is the “baabul ka chhootna” genre of wedding song from “Raakhi” (1962). The song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricidt. Music is composed by Ravi. This lyricist-Music director duo have given us several great wedding songs, and this song is one of them.

The song is picturised as a background bidaai song as Waheeda Rehman, after being married off to Pradeep Kumar is deparing in a doli, looked on by Ashok Kumar, playing dulhan ka bhai.


Song-Baabul chhoot chala tera angna (Raakhi)(1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna

haath huye kya peele mere
ho gayi main to paraayi
haath huye kya peele mere
ho gayi main to paraayi
shahnaayi ki goonj mein kho gayi
baabul meri duhaayi
dil bhi mera tab tab dhadke
jab jab khanke kangna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna

jis angna mein bhaiyya ke sang
bachpan mera khela
jis angna mein bhaiyya ke sang
bachpan mera khela
us angna mein aaj khada hai
bhaiyya mera akela
jaagti aankhon dekh raha hai
mere sukh ka sapna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
