Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Bandish-1955.

What is the meaning of the word Bandish ? It is very funny that we use many Urdu words without understanding their real exact meanings. We have some vague idea about its meaning and we sincerely use it with that intended meaning. I have come across people frequently using wrong words, causing humour or pity. From the childhood, I always remembered what our English teacher had told us. He had said that when in doubt, immediately refer to the dictionary and get the right meaning. A habit from that time helped me always and I became careful in using the correct words. This helped me in my education as well as career. Same case is with pronunciation of certain words. English or Urdu is not our mother tongue, and hence the right pronunciation of words is as important as using the right words.

Again, how many of us know the real, exact meaning of the word Bandish ? Those of us who are Music oriented, we know that ‘ Bandish ‘ is a fixed, melodic composition in Vocal or Instrumental music. However, Bandish has some other usages or meanings like ‘ Binding Together ‘ or even ‘Restriction’. Dictionary gives these words, बंधन , रुकावट , शब्द योजना, रचना etc. Looking at the story of this film Bandish-55, the most appropriate meaning would be ‘Binding Together’.

This film was having a FIRST and a LAST about it. This film was the FIRST or the Debut film of the child artiste Daisy Irani. In this first film, she enacted a Boy’s role ! Daisy Irani was the sister of Menaka and Honey Irani and her brothers were Sarosh and Bunny. Her parents were Perin and Noshir Irani. Their grandfather ran an Irani restaurant ‘ B.Merwan’. Her father was looking after the cafe and their greedy mother Perin irani employed all 5 children to work as child artistes in Hindi and other language films. Thus their childhood was an abnormal one. Out of 5 children, Bunny acted in only 2 films,Sarosh in 5 films, Menaka even did few films as Heroine, but Daisy with 69 films and Honey with 22 films acted as child actors till they grew enough till not to look like children anymore. All got married and settled. Menaka married actor director Kamran (father of Farah Khan- Choreographer), Daisy married K.K.Shukla-a writer and Honey married Jawed Akhtar-writer, ex MP and a pseudo secularist.

This film was the LAST film as an assistant music Director for Ravi (who had been working as an assistant to Hemant Kumar). After this film, he debuted in film Vachan as an independent Music director He, however, continued relations with Hemant Kumar by offering him songs to sing in his films, for a long time.

Film Bandish-55 was made by Basu Chitra Mandir. It was directed by Satyen Bose and Music was by Hemant Kumar (assistant-Ravi Shankar Sharma). The cast of the film was Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Daisy Irani-credited as Roop Kumar, Bipin Gupta, Sajjan, Nazir Hussain and many many more. Master Bhagwan was a Guest Artiste and sang a song ” Le lo Gubbare” in this film.

Director Satyen Bose was my favourite director. I had first heard the name Satyen Bose when I saw the film Jagriti for the first time in 1954. That time I realised that this director is too good to miss anytime. His successive films confirmed my opinion about him and I made it a point to see all his films, as far as possible.

SATYEN BOSE was born on 22-1-1916 at Goya Bazaar, Calcutta. (some sources claim that he was born in Purnia, Bihar). He graduated in commerce from Vidyasagar college,Calcutta in 1941.He did jobs in Railways and Bank. He set up National progressive Pictures and made 3 films in Bangla. His Film PORIBORTAN-1949 was a grand success. He also acted as Principal Shishir babu in it. He then shifted to Bombay. He first made Parichay and then made Jagriti-54,a remake of his own PORIBORTON-49. Abhi Bhattacharya played the role of the new Superintendent Shekhar Babu in this film. Film Jagriti became a landmark movie in Hindi and won many awards including Filmfare and a national award. He directed 34 films till Woh din aayega-86.

He also did a Malyali film, Jeevita Samaram-71. His film Dosti gave name and fame to the L-P duo. Rakhi Gulzar debuted in his Jeevan Mrityu and Nargis got her National Award for his Raat aur Din-68. He did many films for Rajashree Productions and had good relations with Tarachand Barjatya. He was very friendly with Mukesh Sharma, Director of Bombay Doordarshan, in those days.

Satyen Bose died on 9th June 1993 at Bombay. His last rites were done by Mukesh Sharma, as per the wishes of Satyen Bose. Only 2 people from the Film Industry-Tarachand Barjatya and Anup Kumar attended his funeral. A great film director who gave hits like Jagriti, Raat aur Din, Girl Friend, Jeevan mrityu, Chalti ka naam gaadi etc,died Unsung and Unwept by the same industry !

Here is the filmography of Satyen Bose- FILMOGRAPHY (* also act): 1949: Paribartan*; 1951: Barjatri*; 1953: Bhor Hoye Elo; 1954: Jagriti; Parichay; 1955: Rickshawala; Bandish; 1957: Bandi; 1958: Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi; Savera; Sitaron Se Aage; 1960: Masoom; Girl Friend; 1964: Daal Mein Kala; Dosti; 1966: Aasra; Mere Lal; 1967: Bhagya; Raat Aur Din; 1968: Jyot Jale; 1969: Wapas; Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool; 1970: Jeevan Mrityu; 1972: Sa Re Ga Ma Pa; Anokhi Pehchan; Mere Bhaiya; 1977: Mastan Dada; 1978: Anmol Tasveer; 1979: Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin; Bin Maa Ke Bachche; 1980: Payal Ki Jhankaar; 1982: Tumhare Bina; 1983: Kaya Palat; 1986: Woh Din Aayega.

In Hindi cinema 2 actresses were famous as ” Eternal Weepers”. In almost every film these actresses wept at least 10 times ! Seeing them smiling or laughing used to be a matter of challenge and the cine-goers used to bet on these moments in their films ! They were NIMMI AND MEENA KUMARI-who was called The Tragedy Queen. Do you know even among the male actors, there was one such actor who wept in the majority of his films ? He also had 3 pet dialogues to be used in all his films. It was jokingly said in the industry that he would not sign a film till he was assured of at least one weeping scene in the film. His name was NAZIR HUSSAIN.

Nazir Hussain, an educated, multifaceted character actor, producer, director, writer and a social worker. Nazir Hussain was born on 15-5-1922 at village Usia Dildarnagar, Kamsaar, dist. Ghazipur-U.P. His father Shahabzad was a Guard in Railways. Being a tall and healthy person, Nazir joined the British Army for some time, but soon he left and joined the Indian National Army of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. In 1950,Bimal Roy was planning his film on Netaji,”Pehla Aadmi”. He needed a person who could act and have the knowledge of Netaji’s army details. He approached Nazir Hussain and after some pressure, he conceded and acted in the film. (HFGK however does not show his name in the cast, maybe the list is incomplete or he must have been in the film credit list).

Thus started a career spanning a period of more than 3 decades. He was one actor who started with doing character roles and continued throughout his career. He worked in over 200 films. He was a permanent fixture in Bimal Roy films, next he worked in almost all films of Dev Anand and Dharmendra also. His typical style of acting and delivery of dialogues got him weeping roles mostly. It is generally believed that Nazir did only weepy roles of helpless, poor farmers, poor girl’s father, worker of low level, coolie etc etc, but it is not true. He is probably one of those actors who excelled in doing a variety of roles like Murderer(Baazi),Professor(Tapasya),Doctor(Khamoshi/Abhinetri), Police Commissioner( Jewel Thief), Advocate( Mohabbat zindagi hai),Police Inspector( Kala Pani), doting/smiling father (Sharmilee), Riksha Puller ( Do bigha zamin), Seth ji( Naya Daur) etc etc. However, because of his weepy roles in hit films, he was nicknamed “Aansuon ka canister” in the film industry. The equation was, “Nazir does not accept a role unless he is allowed to weep on screen”.

Besides being a major character actor, the service he has rendered to the Bhojpuri Film industry can not be forgotten. In one of the Film Award functions, Nazir was introduced to President Rajendra Prasad. On learning that Nazir came from Gazipur, the President asked him why he should not produce Bhojpuri films. Taking inspiration from this, Nazir wrote, produced and directed the first Bhojpuri film “Gnaga maiya tori piyari chadhai bo”-1962. Later he kept on making several hit Bhojpuri films.

He was often a subject of ridicule for his weepy roles. His favourite dialogue was,”Beti / Beta, aaj agar tumhari Maa zinda hoti toh….”. Yet another was,”Ab main duniya ko kya munh dikhaun “? One more was, ”Tumne mere saare armaan choor choor kar diye”. Nazir Hussain was an actor,producer,director and also a writer. He used to write and direct all his Bhojpuri films. He shot many of his Bhojpuri films in and around his village and helped develop that area for employment.

His last film as an actor was Vali E Azam-1987. He died on 25-1- 2014 at the age of 92 years, in Malad, Mumbai. ( Thanks to Mr. M N Sardana ji and wiki ji).

The story, dialogues and screenplay of the film Bandish was by Jyotirmoy Roy. BANDISH was a remake of a successful Bengali film Chhale Kaar-1954.

In the film, story happens with all the cast bearing Bengali names. Nasir Hussain is Mahender Babu who is bringing up an orphan ‘Tomato’ (Daisy Irani),since he was a small baby. Now that he is unable to rear him any further due to bad health, he leaves Tomato in a park, where Kamal Roy(Ashok Kumar) is sitting alone on a bench and he tells Tomato to call him his father hereafter. Kamal Roy brings Tomato home and keeps him as his son. Kamal Roy’s marriage is fixed with Usha Sen(Meena kumari). The entry of Tomato is resented by Kamal’s Mother(Protima Devi) and father(Bhanu Bannerjee) who advise him to get married immediately, as the neighbours and other people in their social circle are whispering about Tomato’s parentage-accusing silently Kamal himself. In this situation Usha supports Kamal fully.

The story further details how Tomato brings cheers and sorrow in their lives with the end being very happy.

Here is the 4th song from this film, sung by Asha Bhosle.


Song-Mohe apna bana lo saajan (Bandish)(1955) Singer- Asha Bhonsle, Lyricist- Prem Dhawan, MD- Hemant Kumar (asstt. Ravi)

Lyrics

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 16#

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’.

I had never read or heard about this movie earlier till I become aware of this in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). It seems to be an obscure movie and very less information about it is available so far. Luckily though few of its songs have been uploaded by music lovers and I sincerely express my gratitude towards them.

‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’ was directed by Prabhat Mukherji. It seems that Prabhat Mukherji was also the producer of this movie, as HFGK mentions the production company as Prabhat Mukherji (Producer, Calcutta).

The star cast of the movie is listed as Balraj Sahni, Ajay Sahni (Parikshit Sahni), Miss Kaul, Kalpana Sahni, Pran Kishore Kaul, Badgami, Raja Hamid, Kishori Kaul, Rajani Gupta, Gitanjali Desai, Shazda Zameer Ahmed, Ghulam Muhammad Pandit, Ghulam Muhammad Sufi, Krishna Pandit, Zehar Rai, and others. It was passed by Censor Board on 24.08.1972.

Here is brief about this movie which is mentioned on its song-link on YouTube by the uploader of the today’s song.

Mahjoor (Peerzada Ghulam Ahmad) was a poetic legend in the valley of Kashmir, known for his revolutionary poetry of 20th Century, Unfortunately, not much documented and heard beyond the valley. Balraj Sahni was amazed with the popularity of the poet in the region and decided to document the poet’s life on celluloid in mid 60s. He opted his son Parikshit to play the role of the poet in biopic, while he himself played father of Mahjoor. The music was given by Prem Dhawan with songs penned by Kaifi Azmi & Prem Dhawan (a few translations of Mahjoor’s works). The bilingual film directed by Prabhat Mukherjee got delayed in making and release and could only be released in 1972. The song gives some insight, how Mahjoor was the poet & the VOICE of the folk, the common people of the valley with his images, and characters from common walks of life.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie had ten songs written by two songwriters – six songs by Prem Dhawan and three songs by Kaifi Azmi. One song is a traditional and famous ghazal penned by Mirza Ghalib. Though HFGK mentions Prem Dhawan’s name for six songs it does not mention Kaifi Azmi’s name for the remaining four songs. However, for lyricists of the movie the credit is given to both.

The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No.  Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Phir Mujhe Deed-Ay-Tar Mahendra Kapoor Ghalib
02 Aaja Aaja O Mere Dilbar Usha Mangeshkar, chorus
03 Chaman Waale Mahendra Kapoor, chorus
04 Aazaadi Hamaare Ghar Aayi Mahendra Kapoor, chorus
05 Subah Ki Hansmukh Dulhan Manna Dey, chorus Prem Dhawan
06 O Kheton Ki Shahazaadi Talat Mehmood Prem Dhawan
07 Maine Naye-Naye Phool Choone Usha Mangeshkar Prem Dhawan
08 Ruk Jaa Aaj Ki Raat Krishna Kalle, chorus Prem Dhawan
09 Tamanna Kab Se Hai Dilbar Suman Kalyanpur Prem Dhawan
10 Jaane Kab Aaoge O Dilbar Manna Dey, chorus Prem Dhawan

Today’s song is sung by Talat Mehmood. I had not listened to this song earlier and when I discovered the link for this song, I got a pleasant surprise. Besides being a song sung by Talat Mehmood it was also not posted on the blog and I got this opportunity to present it on the blog.

With the today’s song ‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’makes its debut on the blog.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Is Duniya Mein Rehnewaale Sab Hon Ek Samaan” from the movie ‘Samaanta’ to today’s movie song-post.

Today’s song is a special one. It is from the film Taxi 555-1958. The film was released on 30-11-1958 at Super Cinema in Bombay. Why I call this song a Special song is, because this song ( Diya bujhaao, jhatpat jhatpat ) is a parody of K L Saigal’s well known song ” Diya Jalaao, jagmag jagmag” from the film Tansen -1943. Of course the Parody stops only at the Mukhada of the song. The style or the tune of the rest of the song is entirely different, nevertheless the mukhada, being famous, undoubtedly reminds us of Saigal’s song.

Fil Taxi 555-1958 was a Murder Mystery, though HFGK calls it a Social film. Although the 50’s decade was the peak of the Golden period of HFM, in terms of Melody, Content, Tune and Rendition, the type of films slowly changed to Crime, Murder mysteries and Detective stories, towards the end of the decade, The 60’s decade was full of such films. However films like Agra Road,, Aparadhi Kaun, Begunah, Nau do gyarah and Ustad (5 films) in 1957 and 10 O’Clock, 12 O’Clock, Detective, Howrah Bridge, Kala Pani, Mujrim, Phir subah Hogi, Post box 999, Solva saal, Taxi 555 (10 films) in 1958 were indicators of the dominant film genres of the coming times.

Film Taxi 555, a Murder mystery filmwas made by Golden Movies- owned by producer Mulkraj Bhakri and directed by his brotherLekhraj Bhakri. All the 8 songs of the film were written by Prem Dhawan and the Music Director was Sardar Malik, assisted ably by arranger Sebastian D’Souza.

As the name suggests, Sebastian was from Goa. A typical Goan likes to live life-“Sushegaat”- which loosely means “Araam se” or a carefree life. Their philosophy is Eat, Drink and be Merry. This Merry part included Music. Goa has given many musicians to India. Lata/Asha are from Mangeshi-Goa, though the family had shifted to Kolhapur, Music Directors Dattaram(Wadkar) and N.Datta(Datta Naik), Singers Kishori Amonkar, Kesarbai Kerkar, Shobha Mudgal, Hema Sardesai, Prabhakar Karekar, Remo fernandes, Lorna are from Goa.(The list is only indicative, not exhaustive).
Anthony Gonsalves was from Majorda-Goa. He worked for Naushad, O P Nayyar and Laxmikant Pyarelal (‘My name is Anthony Gonsalves’ song is a tribute by Laxmikant Pyarelal to him, as he taught Pyarelal so many things including Notations.)

Chick Chocolate aka Anthony Vaz from Aldona-Goa—he worked for C.Ramchandra mainly.

Chris Perry worked for Khayyam,R D Burman,Kalyanji Anandji, and Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Frank Fernando- worked with Anil Biswas, Kishore Kumar, Roshan and C.Ramchandra.

Sebastian D’Souza from Bicholim-Goa—worked for Shanker Jaikishen from 1952 to 1975 and also with O P Nayyar. Incidentally, he is the one Arranger who worked with a maximum number of different Music Directors,irrespective whether they were small, medium or big ones, new or old ones.

Most of the players of western instruments in the Orchestras were from Goa. Only some are mentioned.

Sebastian D’Souza was one of the most reputed arrangers in Bollywood, who did his best-known work with the duo of Shankar-Jaikishan between 1952 and 1975. His first break was with O. P. Nayyar. The first tune he arranged was “Pritam aan milo”, which was sung by C. H. Atma in 1955. He devised a system of notation that incorporated the microtones that characterised Indian melodies.

Sebastian was born on 29 January 1906 in Reis-Magos, Goa. He learnt to play the violin and piano in a local church school. While learning these instruments, he also learnt to write music notation. It was during this time that he listened to the famous symphonies of well-known composers of the western world, namely, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Haydon and Richard Wagner. Deeply interested in violin and piano, Sebastian continued his learning and went to places like Allahabad, Mussorie and Delhi. At Delhi, in Hotel Astoria, he started his own band and people appreciated it. In 1942, he went to Lahore, and in Hotel Stiffels, he started his own band. This continued until 1947. After partition, he went to Bombay and started his career as a violinist in the film industry. He played for well-known music directors like Anil Biswas, Naushad, Vinod, Ghulam Haider, Husnlal-Bhagatram, S. D. Burman, Sajjad Hussain and Shanker-Jaikishan.

He started his career as a Music Arranger in 1948-49 with O. P. Nayyar when Nayyar recorded his first song “Preetam aan milo…..” sung by C. H. Atma and written by Mrs. Saroj Mohini Nayyar (O. P. Nayyar’s wife) . After three years, Nayyar signed his first film, Dalsukh Pancholi’s “Aasmaan”, as an independent music director. At that time he called Sebastian to work as his Arranger. Sebastian, thus, started his career as an arranger with O. P. Nayyar in 1952 which he continued till 1973. The last film for which he worked with O. P. Nayyar was ‘Pran Jaye Par Vachan Na Jaye’. Incidentally this was also the last film of singer Asha Bhosale with Nayyar.

In 1952, Sebastian’s friend Sunny Castellino, who worked as an arranger for Shanker-Jaikishan, introduced Sebastian to the duo. So Sebastian started as Shanker-Jaikishan’s arranger from 1952 with Amiya Chakravarty’s Daag, and continued until 1975. Film Sanyasi was Sebastian’s last film with them.

In film Daag as an arranger, Sebastian’s most successful innovative work was the creation of a memorable counter-melody for a song sung by both Talat Mehmood and Lata Mangeshker –‘Ai mere dil kahin aur chal…..’. According to Sebastian, in this song he used the accordion for creating counter-melody along with violin and mandolin. And the result was excellent. Sebastian used accordion for interlude music in a number of songs but its use as the main instrument for counter-melody was rare.

Shankar-Jaikishan being lovers of Indian Classical Music, composed a LP record titled Raga Jazz Style in which they presented 11 Raga in Jazz style. Sebastian arranged the music and wrote the notations. Sebastian also worked for great music directors like Salil Chowdhury, Vasant Desai, S. D. Burman, Madan Mohan, Roshan, Dattaram and N. Dutta. Sebastian occasionally worked for Vinod, Sardar Malik, S.Mohinder, Kalyanji Veerji Shah, Kanu Ghosh, Iqbal Qureshi, Prem Dhawan, Shyamji Ghanashyamji and Nitin Mangesh as well. And he never forgot to express his gratitude towards renowned musicians such as Robert Correa and Mike Machado (the Pianists), Albuquerque, Verga, Simplicio D’Souza and John Gonsalves (the Cellists), V Balsara and Goody Seervai (the Accordionists), Duorado, Narvekar and Karnad (the solo Violinists) and David (the Mandolin player). He would also fondly recall his contemporary music arrangers such as Johny Gomes, Castellino, Chic Chocolate, Ram Singh, Rizbert and Franky.

When he died, on 9-3-1998, in his own Bungalow- “Seb-Maria “, he instructed that no money to be spent on his funeral and all that was saved should go to charity; such is the modesty of greats. Sebastian left behind a rich musical legacy which will live into generations after his time.

Sebastian’s remarkable contribution was his ability to combine Western orchestra with the Indian. His are the songs which we remember even today due to the richness of his musical arrangements and the variations in his melodies. Sebastian was a complete musician. His music lovers will remember his music for years to come. (Thanks to an article by Dr. Padmanabh Joshi. Parts of his article have been used here with adaptations,along with an article from the book ‘Rahe na rahe hum’ by Shantaram Mankikar and my notes.)

The film’s director was Lekhraj Bhakri. Let us know more about Lekhraj through an interesting incident in the life of a well known artiste…

An youngster, like millions of displaced Punjabis ,crossed over to India in 1947 from Abbottabad ( Now Pakistan), when the Indian subcontinent was divided. He and his family, like hundreds of other refugee families from Punjab, were given shelter in Kingsway camp located in north Delhi.

It was by chance that the youngster named Hari Kishan Goswami met his distant cousin Lekh Raj Bhakri, a filmmaker, who was on a visit to Delhi. The well experienced movie maker was impressed with the personality of the lanky handsome man & inquired from him if he is interested in being an actor. The young lad, who was a fan of Dilip Kumar , readily agreed & reached Bombay. Those days Bhakri Sahab was making a film Fashion-1957, with his favourite actor Pradeep Kumar ,Mala Sinha,Chandra Shekhar,Jabeen & Kammo & the shooting was in progress . Mr Goswami was told to be in the studio , to get himself acquainted with the nitty gritty of the film making .

So Goswami started working as an assistant to director Lekhraj Bhakri- for the film Fashion-57. There was a song in the film, in the voice of Hemant Kumar, to be shot on a Beggar on the screen. On the day of shooting, the actor who was supposed to do the role of the beggar and sing this song, did not come. Lekhraj Bhakri caught Hari kishen Goswami, put on the make up of the bearded beggar and made him sing this song on camera. Thus the debut of Goswami took place with Hemant Kumar’s song !

No one from the audience could ever imagine that the person with dishevelled hairs, having a big beard , and with a song on his lips is a handsome young man of 19 years . The movie was ‘Fashion’, released in 1957 & the song was , Composed & crooned by Hemant Kumar . It was the young man’s first exposure before camera. The song was to chide a wayward hero (Pradeep Kumar),who has left his wife (Mala Sinha),for another woman (Kammo) having ill intentions.The song was “ Dharti ki godh mein…” After Fashion ,Bhakri Sahab made Sahara in 58 ,with M Rajan & Meena Kumari & Hari Kishan Goswami ( who now wanted to be called as Manoj Kumar, the name Dilip Kumar had in a film), was given a substantial role . Bhakri Sahab, true to his words, took on Manoj Kumar in his subsequent movies Panchayat, Chand & Honeymoon (1960).

Lekh Raj Bhakri , directed his first film Rajpoot-51 and thereafter he regularly directed movies ,like Resham,Thokar,Dak Babu etc within a modest budget . He directed about Twenty movies during 1950 to 1962. He made most of his movies under the banner Tasviristan ,owned by Kuldip Sehgal and his sibling Mulkh Raj Bhakri’s Golden movies . Mulkh Raj Bhakri ,besides being a producer of Hindi/Punjabi movies ,was also a writer & lyricist . He wrote the famous song ‘Haye Chanda Gaye Pardes’ for Chakori, which is still appreciated by connoisseurs of film music. Mulkh Raj Bhakri also made Bhangra ,a super hit musical in Punjabi ,which had Sunder & Nishi in lead roles.

Mr Lekh Raj Bhakri made many family oriented movies ,like Maa Beta, Tange Wali ,Naya Zamana,HoneyMoon etc. At the same time ,he had no problems directing films of other genres for those who wanted to watch fantasy & Arabian Nights movies. For them he made Naqab, Alladin Laila & Nag Padmini . Later,he made a musical Muslim social ‘Shama’ ,which had Suraiyya & Nimmi & music was composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Lekh Raj Bhakri ,beside Manoj Kumar, introduced music directors Kanu Ghosh with his film Naya Zamaana (1957 ) & Iqbal Qureishi with Panchayat (1958 ). He also introduced actor Vijay Dutt with Shama. Mr Bhakri hung his boots after Banarsi Thug ,a hugely entertaining movie ,released in 1962. He did not further attempt to make movies , as after the arrival of colour ,the budget of Hindi movies was increased many fold & now it was a risky business. It did not suit the temperament of a simple soul like Bhakri Saheb . Mr Bhakri,who did not believe in showing off ,always kept a low profile despite being a successful director , bade adieu to show business . Much later, he passed away on 03 March 1976 at the age of sixty years. It was a matter of time ,when the era of principled film makers ,who made purposeful movies with message , came to an end & proposal makers having no regards for ethical values arrived with the sole aim of earning money .( adapted from the article by shri M.N.Sardana ji, with thanks. )

Lyrics

Diya bujhaao jhatpat jhatpat
Diya bujhaao jhatpat jhatpat
Diya bujhaao
sone waale sun re
tere aangan mein murga boley
(kukdoo koon koon
kukdoo koon koon)
tere aangan mein murga boley
kaahe na ankhiyaan kholey
diya bujhaa
diya bujhaa
diya bujhaa
jhatpat jhatpat
diya bujhaao
jhatpat jhatpat
diya bujhaao

keh gaye kehne waale
kya ustaad jee
suno beta

uthh jaag musaafir
bhor bhayi
ab rain kahaan jo sowat hai
jo jaagat hai so paawat hai
jo sowat hai so khowat hai
soch zara
soch zara
soch zara
diya bujhaao
jhatpat jhatpat
diya bujhaao

meethhe sur mein kaaga gaaye
sone mein kyun waqt ganwaaye
kaam bina kya kaam jagat mein
kaam se milte daam jagat mein
daam se milta naa aam
daam se milta naam jagat mein
naam kamaa
naam kamaa
naam kamaa
diya bujhaao
jhatpat jhatpat
diya bujhaao
jhatpat jhatpat
diya bujhaao

jaldi karo beta

khul gaye nalke aa gaya paani
thhumak thhumak chali Raadhe Raani
paniya bharan main to chali jaat hoon
sar par bhaari prem ka matka
laage kamar mein sau sau jhatka
jhatka
jhatka
jhatka
jhatka
sar par bhaari prem ka matka
laage kamar mein sau sau jhatka
phir bhi meethhe geet gaat hoon
sur mein to gaao
sur mein to gaao
sur mein to gaao
sur mein to gaao
