In this year, Lata Mangeshkar achieved a major feat that went unnoticed at that time. She completed 1000 songs as a playback singer in Hindi films. She was the first playback singer to achieve this distinction in HFM.

Here is the summary of her playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1954 :

During the year 1954, she worked for the first time with nine music directors- Arun Kumar Mukherjee, Aziz Hindi, B S Kalla, Ninu Majumdar, S V Venkatraman, Sardar Malik, Sardul Kwatra, Shailesh and Vasant -Ramchandra. As for lyricists, she worked for the first time with Akhtar Yusuf, Daagh, Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, Kaif Bhopali, Keshav, Pt Chandrashekhar, S H Bihari, Saraswati Kumar Deepak, Tanveer Naqvi, and Vishwamitra Adil.

By 1954, Lata Mangeshkar had worked with 68 music directors and 110 lyricists. Top six music directors, namely C Ramchandra (183), Shankar Jaikishan (108), Husnlal Bhagatram (98), Anil Biswas (98), Roshan (65) and Naushad (53) alone composed 705 of these Lata Mangeshkar songs !

Top six lyricists, viz Rajinder Krishan (160), Shailendra (87), Shakeel Badayuni (75), Hasrat Jaipuri (73), P L Santoshi (61) and Prem Dhawan (40) penned as many as 396 of these songs.

We notice that Lata Mangeshkar sang 172 songs in 43 movies of 1954. The blog has 140 of these songs. All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 30 of these movies are covered in the blog. That leaves us with only 13 movies of 1954 that offers us a few Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss.

Alphabetically, the first such movie of 1954 is “Baazooband” (1954).

“Baazooband”(1954) was directed by Ashalata Biswas and directed by Ramanand Sagar for Variety Productions, Bombay. The movie had Sulochana Chatterji, Balraj Sahni, Roopmala, Anwar, Ramesh Kapoor, baby saroj, Om Prakash, Noorie, Linford, Shanta Kunwar, Noorjahana, Brahm, Indira, Sindura etc with Radhakishan as guest artist.

There were seven songs in the movie. Two songs from the movie has been discussed in the past.

The movie had five Lata Mangeshkar songs in it. They were all solo songs. The two songs covered in the blog were both Lata solos. So three more Lata songs are yet to be covered in the blog.

Here is the third such song from “Baazooband”(1954). the song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Prem Dhawan is the lyricst. Music is composed by Md Shafi. Like other Lata Mangeshkar songs, this song is picturised on Roopmala. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify others seen in the picturisation.


Song-Dil ki mehfil mein aake chale ho kahaan (Baazooband)(1954) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Md Shafi

Lyrics

dil ki mehfil mein aake chale ho kahaan ji chale ho kahaan
mujhse daman chhudaa ke chale ho kahaan ji chale ho kahaan

As a simpleton, I thought that Deepawali is a one day festival which is celebrated on amawasya day. Now I realise that Deepaawali begins two days in advance, namely on tryodashi (or teras). This day is popularly called Dhanteras. Next day viz chaturdashi is Narak Chaturdashi aka Chhoti deewaali. Next day, viz amawasya is the day of Laxmi pooja, and it is the real Deepaawali day. Next day, the first day of next lunar cycle, is Govardhan pooja. Next to that is Bhai dooj. That is not all. On the sixth day after Deepaawali is Chhat, a very important festival in Bihar.

I am not the only simpleton. There are others. For instance, there are people who think that Govardhan pooja has something to do with Gobar (cow dung). 🙂 Not really, Govardhan pooja is pooja of Govardhan parvat, the parvat that Lord Krishna lifted to protect Gokulwasis from severe rain.

In addition to simpletons, even agenda driven activists have a field day during Deepaawali festival. They leave no stones unturned to tell us that bursting crackers during Deepaawali is the cause behind air pollution, and that fire cracker burning deewaali celebrators are big polluters.

On checking up, I found that in India 51% of air pollution is due to industrial activities, 27 % due to vehicles, 17% due to crop burning and only 5% due to fireworks.

So, Deepaawali contributes just 5 % of total air pollution. crop burning, which takes place in the same season contributes thrice as much pollution. vehicles, which ply round the year and not just on the day of deepaawali have been subjecting our lungs to five times more pollution that too round the clock throughout the year.

If we have to do introspection, we have to do wholesale introspection, and not just point an accusing finger towards deepaawali celebration.

The World Health Organization evaluated the concentration of PM2.5 particles to determine the most polluted place on Earth. PM2.5 (fine particulate matter 2.5) refers to tiny particles or droplets in the air that are two and one-half microns or less in width. These particles come from car, truck, bus, and off-road vehicle exhausts and from operations that involve the burning of fossil fuels such as wood, heating oil, or coal. They can also originate from indoor sources such as smoking tobacco, cooking, burning candles, or using fireplaces.

PM2.5 is an air pollutant that is a concern for people’s health when levels in the air are high. These particles reduce visibility and make the air appear hazy when levels are elevated. Some cities, such as New York, issue a PM2.5 Health Advisory when conditions are considered to be unhealthy for sensitive groups.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is an index calculated for major air pollutants regulated by the Clean Air Act: particle pollution (PM2.5), ground-level ozone, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide. The AQI ranges from 0 to 500, with zero representing clean air and 500 being the most hazardous. Values of 100 or below are generally thought of as satisfactory; however, when values are above 100, air quality is considered unhealthy for certain at-risk groups of people and becomes more unsafe as the value increases.

The cleanest countries in the world, as determined by the Environmental Performance Index (EPI), have high air quality, clean water, and strong environmentally-friendly policies and initiatives. These countries include Switzerland, France, and Denmark.

A total of 92 nations were evaluated to determine which had the highest number of PM2.5 – or which nations were the most polluted.

Air pollution is a severe problem in several countries. I found out that one can accurately classify countries as first world, third world etc based on air pollution level. The countries suffering the worst pollution level in the world are- Bangladesh (97.1 microgram/ cubic metres), Pakistan(74.27), India (72.5), Afghanistan (61.8),Bahrain (59.8), Mongolia (58.8). They are followed by Kuwait, Nepal, UAE, Nigeria and Indonesia.

Interestingly, first world countries like USA, European countries, Japan, Singapore etc actually have clear air, even though some of them are densely populated and highly industrialised. For example USA (9.05), Germany (13.01), Japan (12), Great Britain (10.83), France (13.16), Singapore (14.8) etc have clean air, even though some of them are located in the neighbourhood of third world countries. For instance, Singapore is located near Indonesia. Taiwan (18) is located adjacent to China (41), Israel (18) is surrounded by countries with higher pollution etc.

One can see that China, for all its pretensions of being the second largest economy in the world does not have clean air that first world countries have. So China, like India, is very much a third world country, air quality wise.

One can notice that India and almost all its neighbours have the worst air quality in the world. Except India and Nepal, other neighbours of India do not even celebrate Deewaali, nor are they industrialised. So, it is all about discipline, viz following rules (including pollution control rules) in our day to day lives. India and its neighbours are the most indisciplined countries in the world, who disobey laws and rules with abandon, and pay the price. They do not even realise that they are paying a heavy price. We in our region are taking in highly polluted air into our lungs day in and day out.

AQI (Air Quality Index) which is a superset of PM2.5 based rating is widely used to check the air quality of places. AQI below 50 is supposed to be GOOD. 51-100 is Moderate, 101 to 200 is poor, 201-300 is unhealthy, 301 to 400 is severe, 401 to 500 is hazardous.

Today, New Delhi has AQI of 390 (PM2.5 of 233), Mumbai 64 (31), Pune 221 (48), Kolkata 122 (53).

It is not that entire India is suffering from air pollution. We have places in Tamilnadu, Karnataka, Kerala etc whose AQI is below 50 which means they enjoy clear air. For instance, Mysore, Hubli, Kozhikode, Chennai etc have acceptable air quality as of now. So if we can achieve acceptable air quality in parts of India (thanks to disciplined and responsible behaviour), it can be done elsewhere as well. Though there has been no dearth of people telling us about the ill effects of Deepaawali fire crackers, few people seem to bother about the alarming air quality throughout. It is high time we became aware of that and started taking action to rectify this situation. We cannot hope to become a first world country if we have third world level air quality.

So, unlike some others who would exhort people to shun fire crackers, I exhort people to become aware of the fact that India has very poor air quality and we are breathing in highly polluted air. We must act to improve our air quality. We need to do far far more than just shun fire frackers. We need to stop polluting the air which we are doing thanks to our irresponsible industrial and agricultural activities. Countries far more industrialised than us have managed to have cleaner air. It is time we did the same.

For now, let us celebrate Deepaawali in a responsible and safe way. Deepaawali is the festival of light. Light here does not simply mean physical light, it also means being better informed. Incidentally, the word “enlightened”, which is a synonym of “informed” has the word light in it, and that is no coincidence. Let us be enlightened and let us realise that deepaawali is the festival of lights. In addition to physical light, let us light the light of enlightenment as well.

Deepaawali is the day of Laxmi poojan. Laxmi, the goddess of wealth blesses those who are enlightened though education, training, research etc and who are able to create wealth through their enlightened activities, be they manufacture of goods, or provision of services. We find that the people whom Goddess Laxmi blesses on this day are those people who provide quality goods and services. Those who are buying these products are serving as willing couriers of wealth and they are handing over their wealth to the providers of quality goods and services. All this while, people doing deepaawali shopping are under the illusion that they are worshipping goddess Laxmi, whereas Goddess Laxmi has already been worshipped by those who are selling their stuff to the shoppers. 🙂

On the occasion of Deepaawali, here is a deepawali song from “Jeewan Tara”(1951). This movie, apparently a dubbed movie from south, was produced and directed by Joseph Teliyeth for Citadel Films Corporation Limited, Madras. The movie had T R Mahalingam, T R Rajkumari, P S Veerappa, K Sarangpaani,C V Nayagam,K P Kamatchi, C V V Tirupathi, Somu, Swaminathan, T P Rajalakshmi,V Susheela,T S Jaya, Lallitha,Padmini etc in it.

The song, second song from the movie to appear in the blog, is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and prosperous deepaawali.

Blog Day :

Today, October 19, 2020 is the 25th Remembrance Day of Baby Naaz, one of the super child artists of Hindi films who has enthralled the Hindi cinema buffs with her memorable roles. She was a destitute child in ‘Boot Polish’ (1954), the young Paro in ‘Devdas’ (1955), an orphan girl in ‘Do Phool’ (1958), a teenage daughter caught in the marital discord of her parents, Guru Dutt and Veena in ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) and many more roles.

Baby Naaz’s life from her childhood days to teenager has been traumatic and unhappy. Baby Naaz’s undated interview which appeared in ‘Stardust’ magazine sometime in mid-1970 is an indication of how a child has been exploited by her mother by pushing her into Hindi films as a child artist depriving her of schooling and a good childhood to make the family’s life comfortable. In today’s world, Baby Naaz’s case would come in the ambit of child abuse by her mother. From the age of 4, she has been the bread winner for her family when she started performing as a dancer on the road side stage shows. At the age of 8, she became a child artist in Hindi films which continued till her adulthood. In this process, Baby Naaz struggled with her 3-4 shifts of shooting a day depriving her of a normal childhood.

Based on Naaz’s interview mentioned above and also on Khalid Mohamed’s article in ‘The Daily Eyes’- July 8, 2020 and an article which appeared in December 29, 2017 issue of ‘Jansatta’, the life story of Naaz has been sumarised below:

Baby Naaz, (Real name: Salma Baig) was born in Mumbai on 20/08/1944 in a poor family. Her father, Mirza Dawood Baig was a story writer who was trying his luck to sell his stories for Hindi films but was unsuccessful. He remained unemployed beside being a sickly person. Baby Naaz’s mother was an ambitious lady who pushed Baby Naaz to Hindi films as a child artist so that with her income, she can run the house and have a comfortable life. Her father was against his daughter working in the film. But due to the extreme financial problem faced by the family, he reluctantly agreed to his friend, Lekhraj Bhakri’s request to let her do a childhood role of Suraiya in ‘Resham’ (1952). Salma Baig was given a screen name, ‘Baby Naaz’.

Due to her busy shooting schedules, Baby Naaz could not attend the school regularly for which she was rusticated. For the same reason, she had no time for enjoying her childhood. On the other hand, there was constant fights between her father and mother. Deprived of a normal childhood with love and affection from her parents, Baby Naaz twice attempted suicide by jumping into a well at the age of 10 but was saved by her maid servant.

When Naaz was 12, her parents separated and she started living with her mother. About 4 years later, her mother remarried to a film cameraman and shifted to her husband’s house. Slowly, she realised that she was the sole bread winner not only for her mother but also for her lover who had now become her step-father.

Baby Naaz came into limelight as a child artist in ‘Boot Polish’ (1954) in which she played the role of a destitute child along with Master Rattan. She enacted the emotional scenes as well as comedy acts very well. The film was shown in Cannes’ International Film Festival in 1955 where both Baby Naaz and Master Rattan were tied to receive the special commendations from the Jury. With this, Baby Naaz became the most sought-after child artist and worked in a spate of films during 1954-59. Around 1960 onwards, Naaz started getting roles as a major, mostly as a character actor though in a few films, she had also got the lead roles in ‘B’ grade films.

During the shooting of ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960), Naaz became close to Subbiraj, a nephew of Prithviraj Kapoor. Both of them had the second lead roles and decided to convert their closeness into a marriage. However, families from both sides were against this marriage. Their courtship continued for 5 years. It was during the shooting of ‘Dekha Pyaar Tumhaara’ (1963), in which they were in the lead roles, they got married during the outdoor shooting of the film in Pratapgarh Fort. They returned to Mumbai as a married couple.

After the marriage, Naaz felt for the first time that she had got the love and affection which she had missed in her childhood. After the marriage, Naaz had to cut down her assignments in the films due to household responsibilities. In the 1970s, she started working with Kalyanji-Anandji for their musical programmes as a compere. In the 1980s, she almost stopped acting in the films as she had become a dubbing artist for some actresses from the south especially for Sridevi.

After a traumatic childhood and teens, Naaz was happy with her married life. When the time came for her to enjoy a life of contentment with her husband and two children, a tragedy struck in her life. In 1995, Naaz was diagnosed with cancer which was on a terminal stage. She breathed her last on October 19, 1995 when she was 51.

Baby Naaz worked in around 125 Hindi films during 1952-86 of which she worked as a child artist in about 50 films. In the 1960s, Naaz got opportunity to work as a lead/second lead actor in ‘Lambe Haath’ (1960), ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960), ‘Gangu’ (1962), ‘Dekha Pyaar Tumhaara’ (1963), ‘Chaar Darvesh’ (1964), ‘Rocket Girl’ (1965) and Chhaila Babu’ (1967). However, these films did not do well at the box office.

After her marriage in 1963, Naaz restricted her film appearances by choosing the films in which the roles interested her. I find that post-marriage, most of the films in which she acted belonged to big banners and under good directors like M Sadiq in ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967), Sateyn Bose in ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967), Lekh Tandon in ‘Jahaan Pyaar Miley’ (1969), Manmohan Desai in ‘Sachcha Jhootha’ (1970), Dulal Guha in ‘Dushman’ (1972). Hrishikesh Mukherjee in ‘Phir Kab Milogi’ (1974), Asit Sen in ‘Bairaag’ (1976), B R Chopra in ‘Karm’ (1977), Basu Chatterjee in ‘Sheesha’ (1986) etc.

On the occasion of the 25th Remembrance Day of Naaz, I present a song from ‘Gangu’ (1962) which was one of her films with a lead role for her. The film was directed by Promod Chakravarty. The song is ‘kya kaha zara phir kaho’ which is a duet sung by Subir Sen and Geeta Dutt. The song is written by Prem Dhawan is picturised on Chandrashekhar and Naaz which is set to music by Kalyanji-Anandji.

kya kaha zara phir kaho
aji kya kaha zara phir kaho
koi sun lega aji chup raho o
koi sun lega aji chup raho o

07/10/2020 – 79th Birthday of Usha Khanna
———————————————————————–

We are celebrating the 79th birthday of Usha Khanna, the only female music director, shall we say with a sizable films and number of songs to her credit. Ameerbai Karnataki is the other female composer I can think of. This field as some technical fields in the film industry has been dominated by males. The reasons for this could be socio-political. As the musicians were mostly men, so it is understandable. Like I said the technical side is dominated by males in this industry. There are very few female director’s also. No cinematographers that I have heard of, recently if someone has entered the fray I don’t know.

Usha Khanna’s career statistics are impressive, better than even major well known music composers. Imdb is listing 141 films from 1959 to 2016, that is five and half decades.

In my Vinod Khanna post yesterday, I said that the film “Muqaddar ka Sikandar” is missing in the filmography at imdb. I didn’t look close enough, it appears. Peevesie’s Mom informed me that it is very much there in the list but as “Conqueror of destiny”. Imdb is giving the names of hindi film in English translation. The two of us had fun translating some of the names of Vinod Khanna’s films, which imdb had left as it is.

As Usha Khanna’s filmography is untouched by this translation bug, I am trying my hand at it :

1. Dil deke dekho : Give your heart then see for yourself. (That’s full sentence)
2. Hum Hindustani : We Indians (That was easy)
3. Awara Baadal : Wayward cloud
4. Shabnam : Dew
5. Aao pyar Karen : Let’s fall in Love
6. Nishan : sign
7. Faisla : Decision
8. Ek Sapera Ek Lutera : A snake charmer and a robber
9. Main wohi hoon : Yes, that’s me.
10. Lal Bangla : Red Bungalow
11. Insaaf : Justice
12. Raat Andheri thhi : It was a dark night.
13. Chaand par chadhayee : Let’s move to the moon.
14. Woh koyi aur hogaa : That maybe someone else.
15. Aag : Fire
16. Pehle paisa phir bhagwan: Show me the money, then God
17. Khoj : Search
18. Behroopiya : The interloper
19. Ek Paheli : A riddle.
20. Nateeja : The result
21. Sau saal beet gaye : 100 years later
22. Bandish : The restriction
23. Ilzaam : Accusation
24. Ek phool ek bhool : A flower and a mistake.
25. Begunaah : Not guilty
26. Deedar : The view

So on and so forth, this is enough I think.

About the movie Alibaba and 40 thieves(1966) I have written some things in this post of a song from Alibaba chaalis chor (1954).

The stats page of the blog shows that she has composed 973 songs, and only 223 are posted so far. That is less than 25% of the total song composed by the one of the most prolific music directors of the golden era of hindi film music and later. My own tally is 4 posts of Usha Khanna’s songs, posted by me so far, including the present post. The blog also has 37 songs sung by Usha Khanna.

The present song is from the film Alibaba and forty thieves (1966). The composer is Usha Khanna. There are two lyricist credited with writing this song, namely Prem Dhawan and Javed Anwar. Javed Anwar is the pen name used by her father Manoharlal Khanna, for writing ghazals and film songs for her.

Three songs from the film are posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Mere khayaalon ka tu hi khuda (Alibaba and forty thieves) 23 October 2011
Ham tere charaagh hain jalaaye jaa bujhaaye jaa (Alibaba and forty thieves) 29 January 2015
Dekhiye zara pyaar se kyun khafa ho dildaar se (Alibaba and forty thieves) 14 January 2020

The singers are Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur, singing for Sanjeev Kumar and L. Vijayalaxmi. The song is a sweet romantic song picturised in colourful sets. Actually I saw a few songs of this movie today. I am trying to find an old song where, the slaves are being sold in the market and one female is singing a song, calling out for rescue. I vaguely remember such a song having seen in “Chhayageet” on TV. Since the TV used to be black n white, the colour songs are also remembered in black n while. I did not find the song I am looking for. It could be anywhere as I know only the situation. It’s like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.

Hullo Atuldom

23rd August was the birthday of the beautiful Saira Banu. She was born to yesteryear actress Naseem Banu and producer Mian Ehsan-Ul-Haq in 1944.

She made her debut opposite Shammi Kapoor in 1961 as the OH! so gorgeous Kashmiri ‘Kali’ with her introduction song being “Kaashmir ki kali hoon main mujhse na rootho babuji”. In all the years, since then she has remained gorgeous and aged gracefully. In between then and now, she was an active star in the Hindi film firmament till about 1976 when Prakash Mehra directed “Hera Pheri” released. She appeared in a cameo with her husband Dilip Kumar in Yash Johar produced and Ramesh Talwar directed “Duniya” (1984) as parents of Rishi Kapoor.

One of the movies-Faisla- that she acted in the 70s released in 1988; this was her last official release. But this beauty had the best costars in the 15-16 years that she was active with ‘Padosan’ opposite Sunil Dutt catapulting her to the top league after which “Victoria No 203” opposite Navin Nischol was a big hit. We have seen her opposite Dharmendra in ‘Jwar Bhata’, ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’, ‘Resham Ki Dori’, ‘Pocketmaar’, ‘Chaitali’, and ‘International Crook’. She was in ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, ‘Balidaan’, and ‘Shaadi’ with Manoj Kumar as her hero. But her pairing with Dilip Kumar in ‘Gopi’, ‘Sagina’ and ‘Bairaag’ was after her marriage to her childhood crush.

As I was preparing the post for wishing the beautiful Saira Banu I looked for possible songs and made a discovery. I always thought that the 1970 releases ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ and ‘Gopi’ would have been Yyippeeeed by now. A thought that came because we have 15800+ songs on our blog and we have been active for 12+ years. I find we have four songs of “Purab Aur Paschim” out a possible eight or nine songs. We have
(1) dulhan chali o pahan chali
(2) Hai preet jahaan ki reet sada, a post that has 51 comments, must be a record. The last comment was on 6th August 2018.
(3) koyi jab tumhaara hriday tod de
(4) purwa suhaani aayi re purwa was the last to be posted.

That too eight years ago. How have we missed posting songs from this movie. Chalo let us take it a step forward.

Here is a song that is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhonsle. It is written by Prem Dhawan and set to music by the brothers Kalyanji- Anandji. The song begins with some dialogue between puppets that are dressed as a Jat and Videshi Mem. The whole event is meant to belittle the westernized character played Saira Banu as Preethi the daughter of an Indian brought up in London. It ends when she realizes that she is being made fun of. (Personally I felt that we take this ‘west is bad east is best’ a little too far)

Incidentally, 24th August happens to mark 20 years since Kalyanji Virji Shah (30 June 1928-24 August 2000) said good bye to this world. He was the music director of such hits as “mera jeevan kora kaagaz kora hi reh gaya”, “rote hue aate hai sab hasta hua jo jaayega”, “jiska koi nahi uska toh khuda hai yaaron” (as Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey solos) and the still-so-popular “Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi”. Of course, the songs I have mentioned were all in the 70s and 80s, years when I was growing up and learning to appreciate songs.

But Kalyanji, of the duo, began as a musician in the early 50s. He was the one who played the Clavioline for the songs of ‘Nagin” that were essentially Hemant Kumar scores. Remember the “Nagin-been” from 1954 which has become the signature tune used in all serpent-related songs, scenes and movies? He formed an orchestra group with his brother Anandji, all those years ago, which performed in and around Bombay (as Mumbai used to be called). His arrival in the industry was in, what is called, the golden period of Hindi Film Music when SD Burman, OP Nayyar, Madan Mohan etc were the compeetition. He still managed to get a foothold “Samrat Chandragupt” was his first film. He was officially joined by his brother Anandji, to form the duo, with movies like Satta Bazaar, Chhalia etc. The long journey of the duo gave us many gems and we treasure all of them lovingly. Thank You Kalyanjibhai- Anandjibhai.

Coming back to today’s song- wishing Saira Banu all health and happiness even if a day late & remembering Kalyanjibhai. Here is that song for which the farmaish/ reminder was made on 6th August 2018.

“Gambler”(1960), not to be confused with “Gambler”(1971), was directed by Dwarka Khosla. The movie had Premnath, Shakila, Agha, Pran, K N Singh, Shammi, Madan Puri, Cuckoo etc in it.

This movie had seven songs in it- two duewts and five solos. THe two duwets have already been covered in the past.

Here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata. Prem Dhawan isa the lyricist . Music is composed by Chitragupta.

This song, heard by me for the first time today (sixty years after its creation) sounds as fresh as lily. This is a quintessential Chhaayaageet kind of song, best heard at night time. The tune sounds so Salil Chaudhary like, but it is a composition of Chitragupta instead.

Only the aufdio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is thatb bthe song was picturised on Shakila.


Song-Koi teekhi teekhi aankhon ke ishaaron se (Gambler)(1960) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

koi teekhi teekhi aankhon ke ishaaron se
mere dil ka karaar le gaya
koi teekhi teekhi aankhon ke ishaaron se
mere dil ka karaar le gaya
kaise kahoon main wo kaisa dilwaala thha
bina maange jo bahaar de gaya

aankh ladi baat badhhi
jaane main kyun sharmaayi
aankh ladi baat badhhi
jaane main kyun sharmaayi
o o o
aisa laga door kahin
baaj uthhi shehnaai
aji baaj uthhi shehnaai
meri jaagi huyi sooni sooni raaton ko
koi sapne hazaar de gaya
koi teekhi teekhi aankhon ke ishaaron se
mere dil ka karaar le gaya

dil ki lagi aur badhi
laakh nazar ko roka
dil ki lagi aur badhi
laakh nazar ko roka
o o o
par na koi zor chala
kha hi gaye hum dhokha
aji kha hi gaye hum dhokha
phir khoyi khoyi usi ke khayaalon mein
jaane kaisa wo khumaar de gaya
koi teekhi teekhi aankhon ke ishaaron se
mere dil ka karaar le gaya

uska pata poochhe koi
meri nazar jhuk jaaye
o o o
kuchh na kahoon
chup si rahoon
raaz magar khul jaaye
aji raaz magar khul jaaye
sharmaane lagen aankhen meri aankhon se
dene waala kaisa pyaar de gaya
koi teekhi teekhi aankhon ke ishaaron se
mere dil ka karaar le gaya
kaise kahoon main wo kaisa dilwaala thha
bina maange jo bahaar de gaya

Today (13 july 2020) is the birth anniversary of Prem Dhawan (13 june 1923-7 May 2001) Prem Dhawan is mainly known as a lyricist, but he was also a music director as well as an actor and choreographer.

Prem Dhawan made his debut as a lyricist in 1946 with the movie “Dharti Ke Lal”(1946). His last movie as a lyricist was was “Appu Raja”(1989).

“Jahaan Daal par par sone ki chidiyaa karti hai basera”, the iconic song from “Sikandar e Azam”(1965) is an iconic song that gets played without fail on 26 januray and 15 august. “Ae watan ae watan” (Shaheed)(1965) and “Mera rang de basanti chola”(Shaheed)(1965) were pennned as well as composed by Prem Dhawan. “Ae mere pyaare watan” (Kaabuliwaala)(1961) was also penned by Prem Dhawan.

It is not that he only penned patriotic songs. He penned songs of all genre that one sees in HFM.”Chandamama door ke”(Vachan)(1955), an iconic mother-child lullaby, was penned by him. “Seene mein sulagte hain armaan (Aarzoo)(1951) was also his creation, as was the case with the folk song extraordinaire-:kaun rang mungwa kaun rang motiya”(Heera Moti)(1959). “Dil ko laakh sambhaala jee (Guest House)(1959), “Do roz mein wo pyaar ka aalam guzar gaya”(Pyaar Ki Raahen)(1959), “Haseen Ho Khuda to nahin ho (Mud Mud Ke an Dekh:(1960), “Dil Hai tera deewaana”(Zimbo Sahhar Mein)(1960), “Teri duniya se hoke majboor chala”(Pavitra Paapi”(1971)- all these were created by Prem Dhawan !

THe song is picturised on Chandrashekhar and Naaz who are seen driving in a car. Driving as well as a singing simultaneously, it is not advisable, but HFM safety standards have always been lax. 🙂

haan chhoda ji chhoda ye beton ka vyopaar
aisi shaadi pe dhikkaar dhikkaar dhikkaar
dulha bikta beech bazaar
ye hai shadi ya vyopaar
beche pagdi to baabul laaye beti ka singaar
dulha bikta beech bazaar
ye hai shaadi ya vyopaar

Here is the third song from “Zingaaro”(1963) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Muhabbat mein sab kuchh lutaate chalo (Zingaaro)(1963) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-S N Tripathi
Chorus

Lyrics

muhabbat mein sab kuchh lutaate chalo o
jale dil magar muskuraate chalo
muhabbat mein sab kuchh lutaate chalo
jale dil magar muskuraate chalo
aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa

honthon pe ho naam kisi ka
yaad kisi ki seene mein
pyaar na ho to phir kya rakkha
hai marne ya jeene mein
ho ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho

honthon pe ho naam kisi ka
yaad kisi ki seene mein
pyaar na ho to phir kya rakkha
hai marne ya jeene mein
ulfat ki mehak sajaate chalo o o o
mohabbat mein sab kuchh lutaate chalo o
jale dil magar muskuraate chalo
aa aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa aa

jiske dil mein pyaar samaaya
roke se kab rukta hai
dilwaale ka sar to bas
dildaar ke aage jhukta hai
ho ho ho ho ho
ho ho ho

jiske dil mein pyaar samaaya
roke se kab rukta hai
dilwaale ka sar to bas
dildaar ke aage jhukta hai
duniya ki nazren jhukaate chalo o o o
mohabbat mein sab kuchh lutaate chalo o
jale dil magar muskuraate chalo
muhabbat mein sab kuchh lutaate chalo o o
jale dil magar muskuraate chalo

“Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh”(1960) was directed by Ramesh Tiwari for N C Films, Bombay. This “Social” movie had Bharat Bhushan, Anita Guha, Jeewan, Tiwari, Prem Chopra (debut), Krishnakumari, Bela, Kammo, Helen, Naaz, Mishra, Anwari Bai, Narbada Shankar, Rajinder Kathana, Ratan Gaurang, Nemo, Prakash, Robert etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Today (20 may 2020) is the remembrance day of Hansraj Behl (19 November 1916 – 20 May 1984). As a tribute to him, here is another song from “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh”(1960). This song is sung by Rafi and Shamshad Begam. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

It is a very old and conservative kind of romantic song where the two spouses want to be together but they need to make sure that other family members do not take notice.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.
