Blog Day : 3642 Post No. : 14468

A recent anniversary that I had been preparing for – and missed on account of some travel engagements – is the remembrance day for the exceptional poet and lyricist – Bharat Vyas. He passed away in 1982, on 5th July.

The mention of this name brings to mind names of films such as ‘Chandralekha’ (1948), ‘Rim Jhim’ and ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (both 1949), ‘Janamashtami’ and ‘Hamaara Ghar’ (both 1950), ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Do Aankhen Baraah Haath’ and ‘Amar Singh Rathod’ (both 1957), also ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ from 1957, ‘Samraat Chandragupt’ (1958), ‘Bedard Zamaana Kya Jaane’ and ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnaai’ (1959), ‘Navrang’ and ‘Raani Roopmati’ (again 1959), ‘Angulimaal’, ‘Veer Durgadas’ and ‘Saaranga’ (all 1960), ‘Jai Chittod’ and ‘Pyaar Ki Pyaas’ (1961), ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan’ (1963), ‘Boond Jo Ban Gayi Moti’ (1967) – and many more films with many a memorable song.

A career that lasted well over four decades, starting in the early 1940s. with about 1200 songs from more than 130 films. And a majority of these films, say around 70%, is an exclusive list of religious and historical films that forms a very impressive read. So yes, his specialization seems to be poetry on religious themes. Even a (then) modern dance based love story – the film ‘Cha Cha Cha’ from 1964; when the producer needed a couple of songs of traditional nature, Bharat Vyas is the poet who was called upon for this task.

I am presenting this surprisingly very fun song from a nondescript children’s film ‘Phool Aur Kaliyaan’ from (1960). When I landed at this song and started listening, it seemed to be some sort of a normal bhajan beginning, being sung by a group of young children. The earnestness and sincerity writ upon their faces as they start the singing, is very engaging. And the mind prepares itself for some wonderful bhajan to follow. But just after the introductory lines are done with, the song transforms into a hilarious entreaty to the Almighty, wherein the children are praying for a very specific boon from Him.

As the song continues, the play of emotions continues to transform from one antaraa to the next, adding more and more hilarity with every passing line. The earnestness on the faces of these children, their expressions of entreaties, and their actions to the words in the song, adds to the humor. And the listener realizes that the children are dead serious with their pleadings to the Lord. In the entire process, the children use all forms of inducement – literally following the traditional method of “साम, दाम, दंड, भेद” which is inducement by praising, by promises of alluring gifts, by threats, and by logic.

The picturization of this song is excellently imaginative. I am just continuously laughing whenever I start listening to this song. The चाचा (uncle) of the children is a tailor. The song is being performed in his work place. The children pick up miscellaneous things from around them and contrive some very peculiar instruments to create the orchestra for the music. The expressions and the fervour of their delivery has been handled extremely well by the director, and of course by the kids themselves.

As the songs gets to its closing lines, the fervour and the intensity of expressions starts to increase. Suddenly come to mind certain other bhajans, in which the picturization shows a similar amplification of fervour and music, and by experience we know – a miracle is about to happen; the statue of God will shed a flower, or a tear. Or an unconscious, near dead person will start breathing and mumbling.

The film ‘Phool Aur Kaliyan’ comes from the banner of Rajkamal Kala Mandir of Bombay, which has been the flagship banner of V Shantaram after his separation from Prabhat Studios in 1942. The film is directed by Ram Gabaale. Geet Kosh lists four songs for this film, all from the pen of Bharat Vyas. The music composition is by Pt Shivram. The singing voice is that of Charusheela, the daughter of V Shantaram from his first wife Vimalabai.

So watch and listen to this oh so engaging song, and I promise you will be smirking and laughing all the way through, to the last when the miracle occurs. Needless to say, I am verily bowled over by this song. And if any listener disagrees and is not fully satisfied, I am ready to return their money. 🙂 🙂

Missing Films of 1960s – 76
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Hindi cinema encompasses quite a few genres and categories. It is a sad statement that the industry has almost always been controlled and driven more by the financial expectations. The earliest model of large studios as centers of film production activities, was somewhat immune to the craziness of financial pressures. The studio system had its own cons, but it provided a larger stability and sustainability to the production effort and to the team belonging to the studio.

It was all too soon that people with all kinds of mental inclinations realized both the power of this medium, and the possibility of landing a jackpot with a hit film. This awareness brought in all kinds of unscrupulous elements, as well as businessmen with an urge to invest unaccounted money in a gamble to make more money. If I recall correctly, the 1949 film ‘Kalpana’ touched upon this aspect, displaying a cruel brazen-ness with which the financiers and the touts dealt with the artists. The grossly dismal record the industry has in terms of its own record keeping and archiving, is an outcome of this ‘jackpot’ mentality – the actual owners of film actually cared a zilch for the film itself. With every venture, the financier would launch a new production banner. One can well imagine the ill effects of this lack of continuity and ownership for the artistic product itself.

But I digress – this discussion on film financing models, another time. I started with the genres and categories, with the purpose to highlight how some genres and categories have fallen by the wayside, over the decades. One of the casualties of the projected “lack of public interest” and the “lack of return on investment” has been the genre of religious pictures. Till the end of 1970s, or maybe even 1980s, there used to be quite a number of offerings of religious films produced every year. In one of his articles, our dear Arun ji has presented an analysis of this aspect – the number of religious films produced on average per year, and the progressive decline of this number over the decades. These days, one rarely hears about a religious offering coming from the mainline cinema. TV, yes, we do hear more about serials on religious themes. Or maybe the investment by the end user, in terms of time and money, is getting channelized much more towards TV productions and the live kathas (discourses) – there literally has been an explosion in the number of kathas being organized and being attended by the people.

The reason for this preamble, of course, is that today’s debut film from 1960s is a religious film of certain importance, from 1967. The film is ‘Badrinath Yatra’. Produced under the banner of Mewar Films, Bombay and is directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The star cast of this film is listed as Nirupa Roy, Abhi Bhattacharya, Sulochana, Indira, Jeevan, Sundar, Niranjan Sharma, Indira Bansal, Fazlu, Nandini Desai, and Kukku Desai amongst others.

There is a huge importance attached to pilgrimage, in our religion. Our land has been blessed from the very beginning of time itself, with famous and important temples which are the abodes of the Gods in our pantheon of worship. The origins and foundation histories of many of these temples and places is lost in the antiquity of time. For many of these temples and places of pilgrimage, there are references in our historical records – and by historical I mean our books of scriptures, which contain details of many such places of pilgrimage being established by protagonists of these histories like Sri Ram, Sri Krishna, the Pandvas, and our Rishis etc. Our histories abound with such tales in detail.

In the 8th century AD, there appeared a champion who measured the breadth and length of this sub-continent – Adi Shankaracharya. He travelled across the land with the mission to reestablish the importance of the Vedantic Dharma, and to re-ignite the lamp of worship in the temples. He established four matha (मठ) in the four regions, which became the four primary centers of learning and research into the Vedic knowledge. These four centers were placed in proximity to the four main destinations of pilgrimage of primary importance for the followers of the Dharma. These pilgrimage places are Badrinath in the north, Puri in the east, Rameshwaram in the south and Dwarka in the west. Each of these four pilgrimage places are historically important with a detailed history about their establishment and their antiquity being described in our scriptures.

Over the ages, these four have been collectively referred to as ‘Chaar Dhaam’ – literally ‘Four Destinations’. It is ordained in our teachings that a person must pay their homage and worship at each one of these pilgrimages, at least once in their life time. A significant importance is attached to completing this journey. Further, the same teachings also exhort the children to comfortably facilitate such a journey for their parents, and enable them to pay homage and complete their worship at these four centers of pilgrimage.

Since the early decades of Hindi cinema, a number of films have been produced as travelogues or “यात्रा” (yatra), covering one or more holy centers of pilgrimage. This film also covers the journey to the ‘chaar dhaam’ or the four holy destinations. This particular song appears more than once in the film, and I am including three different video clips from three different points in the storyline sequence. In the clips, we can see Abhi Bhattacharya, as the obedient son, who is taking his parents (roles played by Sulochana and Niranjan Sharma) for their journey to the ‘chaar dhaam’. The storyline belongs to a certain unspecified era in history, as we can see that Abhi Bhattacharya is even carrying his parents in a yoke shoulder carrier – a long pole with large baskets hanging at two ends, large enough for a human person to sit in. In north India, this shoulder carrier is called “वेहंगी” (wehngi). Folks familiar with the stories from the scriptures will recall the story of Shravan Kumar, the young boy who carried his old and blind parents in a wehngi for pilgrimage.

The song is written by Madan, and is composed by Pt Shivram. The singing voice is that of Mahendra Kapoor. Listening to this song evokes strong emotions in my heart. Not that I have not heard this song before, but now, as I listened to it again repeatedly for lyrics etc., the words and the tune is simply at home with me in my heart. Listen to this beautiful evocation that covers so many philosophies of life. And think.

aaj nahin to kal jag se hai jaana
duniya musaafirkhaana re bhai
duniya musaafirkhaana hai
dhan ke liye dharam kyon beche
ik din to mar jaana hai
tyaag kapat chhal prabhu ke dhaam chal
wahin tere daag mitenge

chal chal re pathik chal re

bachpan khoya khel mein tu ne

bhool ke tu bhagwan ko praani
phas gaya jagat ke moh mein
aaya budhaapa ab to ram bhaj

chal chal re pathik chal re
tujhe bhagwan milenge
tu chaaron dhaam chal re
wahin tere paap mitenge
chal chal re pathik chal re

hari charnon mein janam maran ke
bandhan tere katenge

yug yug se bharat bhoomi
gaaye jin ka gun gaan
woh hain naath anaathon ke
shri badrinath bahgwan
shri badrinath bahgwan
ab jeevan ki har mushkil ko
wahi aasaan karenge

wahin tere paap mitenge

Part 3

chhaale pade chaahe paaon mein tere
suraj tapey aasmaan mein
haar na himmat badhta hi chal re

chal chal re pathik chal re
tujhe bhagwan milenge
tu chaaron dhaam chal re
wahin tere paap mitenge
chal chal re pathik chal re
tujhe bhagwan milenge

युग युग से भारत भूमि
गाये जिन का गुण गाँ

चल चल रे पथिक चल रे
तुझे भगवान मिलेंगे
तू चारों धाम चल रे
वहीं तेरे पाप मिटेंगे
चल चल रे पथिक चल रे
तुझे भगवान मिलेंगे

“Durga Pooja”(1962), not to be confused with “Durga Pooja”(1954), was a bhakti pradhan movie which was produced and directed by Adarsh for Adarshlok, Bombay. The movie had Jaimala, Anant Kumar, Hiralal, B M Vyas, Naazi, Mohan Modi, Deepak, Master Raja, Sandeep, Baby Shobha, Champak Lal, Poonam Kapoor, Rehana Zariwala, Lalita etc in it.

The movie had 13 songs in it. Details of songs are not available in HFGK for any of these songs which are all rare songs.

Here is the first song from “Durga Pooja”(1962) to appear in the blog. As mentioned above, singer is not known, but it is clear from the voice that the song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Pt Indra Chandra is the lyricist. Music is compose d by Pt Shivram.

Only audio of this song is available. From the lyrics, it can be deduced that a female devotee is praying to goddess Durga requesting her to cause rain to fall on earth where people are suffering from water scarcity. It is the first such song that I am aware of where Goddess Durga is asked for something which is not in her jurisdiction. 🙂 Causing rainfall falls under(pun uninted) Lord Indra, but the devotee is apparently not aware about the distribution of portfolios among various gods and goddesses. 🙂

With this song, “Durga Pooja”(1962) makes its debut in the blog. And rather appropriately, this song makes it to the blog on a day (5 june 2018) which is being observed as “World Environment Day”.


Baadal se jal barsa dharti ki pyaas bujha(Durga Pooja)(1962) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Pt Indra, MD-Shivram

Missing Films of 1960s – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As it is, I am able to maintain little regularity and consistency in posting the songs that I so dearly want to. And then there are other factors that keep distracting me and taking me away from my own planned tracks (pun intended 🙂 ). So I get to start preparing a particular song for posting. And then a message will intervene – “do you have such and such song? Goodness, I just need to listen to it now” or a variation is that someone else, very dear to the requestor wants to listen to it. And so, one more draft continues to sit in the wordpress and my hard disk, and completely different song starts getting prepared.

In the financial markets to which I belonged until my retirement, there is an oft repeated remark that not even a die-hard practitioner or expert in the financial markets can claim that he knows everything about the markets. This is mainly on account of the fact that financial markets are dynamic by nature. How true this maxim is in the realm of old Hindi film songs where dynamism flows from unearthing old gems and some related unknown anecdotes.
