Blog Day : 3498 Post No. : 14057

The film that is reaching its Yippeee station today is the 1952 film ‘Anjaam’. A journey that started for this film a little over seven years ago – on 1st Jan, 2011. Just out of curiosity, I checked the list of posts for the songs posted on that date, I find that none of the songs on that day were new year songs. My curiosity heightened, I checked the previous new year days and the ones after this date. I find that on our blog, the tradition of new year songs starts with 1st Jan, 2012. Prior to that, on the three new years that came, we did not specifically have any new year songs. But that is a curiosity, to be handled in another post.

‘Anjaam’ is a social drama that is produced under the banner of Sunrise Pictures, Bombay. It is produced by VM Vyas and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors listed for this film in Geet Kosh is Vaijayanti Mala, Premnath, Kuldip Kaur, Yakub, Dulari, Jankidas, H Prakash, Shammi, and Chitrlekha amongst others. The eight songs of this film are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Given below is the list of seven songs that came prior to this one.

 

Mere Barbaad Hone Ka Nazaaraa Dekhne Waale Anjaam 3412 1-Jan-11
Meri Naiyya Hai Manjhdhaar Anjaam 10093 16-Aug-14
Rut Mastaani Saamne Hai Raani Anjaam 11212 25-Jun-15
Makki Ke Kheton Mein Aana Ji Ho Piya Anjaam 11274 14-Jul-15
Bol O Baabu Kahaan Challa Chhuda Ke Mera Palla Anjaam 11321 26-Jul-15
Jab Ladka Keh De Haan Aur Ladki Keh De Naa Anjaam 11932 17-Mar-16
Baalam Ho To Aisa Anjaam 13367 25-Jun-17

 

The song that is being presented today – I had not heard it ever before today. It turns out that is a song that is very different from other normal songs. Although it is a full 3+ minutes song, and is published on one full side of a 78 rpm. But it is not a regular song. After a long instrumental prelude, we hear the verses of the song. And then, with just two short verses, spaced out over a little more than a minute, the song again goes back into instrumental mode. The lines that are sung in this song, are only a chorus of voices, and no other specific singer is identified. It may be likely that this song is just an accompaniment to a dance sequence in the film. Just guessing.

With this curious presentation, the film ‘Anjaam’ joins the ranks of films with all songs posted. Welcome ‘Anjaam’ to yippeee-land.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘इ’ – इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो

 

मेरी आवाज़ के पीछे चले आओ
चले आओ
चले आओ॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, only if it were possible in this physical world. The only recourse is to listen to the recordings. That charisma is going to remain alive, till the time there is music on this earth. The magic of Rafi Sb’s voice will never cease.

Moving ahead with the next instalment of this series. Picking up next letter ‘इ’, I bring to the blog this wonderful favourite song, which has become a rarity these days. I could not find this song online. Another collector in his own channel has, with deliberation, posted a very short clip of this song. I can see comments from other listeners, requesting for posting the complete song. But of course, some people, you know. . .

The song is from the film ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’ from 1962. The film is produced under the banner of Roopvani Films and is directed by Vasant Painter. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Indira, Heeralal, Ratnamala, Pal Sharma, SK Shukla, Baby Shobha, Kalpana, Mohan Choti, Arun, and Polson amongst others.

Only four songs are listed for this film. The songs are written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music direction is by Sudhir Phadke.

In this song, the voice accompanying Rafi Sb’s, is of Asha Bhosle. The song has such an endearing flow, and when it comes to end after two antaraas, it seems almost abrupt. It builds into such a comfortable listen that, when it ends, the feeling it leaves behind is – ‘it ended too soon, there should be more’. Simple words, simple melody, rendered with deliberate softness and slowness. What a lovely song which is full of sadness of separation. Very touching.

Song – Is Jag Mein Kahin Bhi Rahiyo (Pyaar Ki Jeet) (1962) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

ye lahu nahin hai pag mein
aasha ka lahu behta hai
tum sun jo sako to sun lo
beh beh ke tumhen kehta hai
aasha ko tod na jaiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

is lahu ko ik din sajni
sindoor banana hoga
teri maang sajaani hogi
doli mein bithaana hoga
us din ki khoj mein rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

Missing Films of 1960s – 42
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

IS Johar had a lead of three years over Raj Kapoor. His film ‘Mera Naam Johar’, released in 1967, preceded the great showman’s masterpiece ‘Mera Naam Joker’ which came in 1970. It is a matter of conjecture now, as to who inspired whom. 🙂

So this film is the debut film for today. IS Johar was going very strong, and travelling to many destinations  in the 1960s. In 1965 we saw him in ‘Goa’ with Memood. In 1966, he travelled to ‘Kashmir’. Then in 1967, along with the proclamation that his name is ‘Johar’, he also appeared in ‘Bombay’. His next trip was somewhat delayed, considered that he travelled overseas to ‘Hong Kong’ in 1971, once again in Mehmood’s company.

The film is produced under the banner of Sudershan Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Saran Kant. Besides himself in lead role, other members of the cast include Sonia Sahni, Dhoomal, Aruna Irani, Raj Mehra and Tiwari amongst others. The film has 6 songs listed. Music is from the mind of Usha Khanna. Two songwriters are listed – Asad Bhopali and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, only three of the songs have a specific lyricist identified. For this song, the lyricist name has not been identified. This song is written by Qamar Sb. (This information is actually available in the addenda to the volume IV of Geet Kosh, which I missed referring to earlier.)

The song is delivered in a very comical situation. And the songwriter has written some very catchy lines to match the situation. Apparently it seems that IS Johar and Sonia Sahni have to make a getaway from the clutches of the villain’s gangsters, who are blocking the roads even, and screening the people coming and going. And the way out found by the hero is something that can happen only in IS Johar films. They form a funeral procession, and they have Sonia Sahni acting like a dead body, being carried in the traditional funerary ‘takht’ on the shoulders of a group of people. IS Johar, with his head tonsured and wearing only a dhoti, seems to be the epitome of the prime mourner, carrying the traditional fire in a ‘matka’.

He leads the singing, with this song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor. The group of people accompanying him includes people who are playing the ‘dholak’ and ‘khartaal’ etc. The procession meets the villain’s henchmen in a sort of a road block. And IS Johar is singing and telling the entire real story – that the dead body is  actually ‘zinda’ (alive), and that they are making good an escape with no one the wiser.

The play acting is so convincing that the henchmen who are leading this group of baddies, actually come forward and shoulder the funerary carriage for some distance, even singing along with the group. A most hilarious situation contrived by the director, and so brazenly and blatantly executed by IS Johar and company. IS Johar looks so convincing in his role as a fake mourner, and as he sings along the lines in which he is indicating the truth of the situation, only if someone would listen ‘between the words’. . . – “Jaane Waala Chala Hai Dekho Rok Sakey Na Koi” 🙂

See, listen and enjoy.

Today’s song is from a rare and less known film ‘Lakharani’ from 1945.

Although this was a film made by the great Prabhat Film Company of Poona, unlike earlier Prabhat films this movie never became famous or a landmark film. The reasons were many. The main reason was that it was was made in the period when the company had become very weak after V Shantaram left Prabhat Studios along with some of his chosen people from various departments. Secondly, the storyline of this film was far away from the type of films Prabhat had made in the past. True to its tradition, however, the film had a central theme of “open entry for all castes into Hindu temples“. But it was told through a story of tribal folks and allied jungle people, with whom probably, the audience could not  identify themselves.

Thirdly, the songs and music of this film was below average. The music director, Master Krishnarao Phulambrikar (1891-1974) had a reputation of being an Orthodox Sangeet Natak classicist. His songs never became popular except perhaps the multi-language song of Shanta Hublikar in the film ‘Aadmi’ (1939) (‘Manoos’ in Marathi). Even his contemporary Keshvrao Bhole gave more popular songs. His only film giving good music was Rajkamal’s ‘Mali’ (1944), wherein he himself was the hero opposite Ameerbai Karnataki.

The film was directed by Vishram Bedekar – more famous as a playwright and a script writer. His scripts used to be quite complex. He wrote the story of ‘Lakharani’, in addition to directing it. Vishram Bedekar (b. 1906), Marathi and Hindi film director, best known as a writer, was born in Amravati, Eastern Maharashtra. He started his career with the Sangeet Natak company Balwant Sangeet Mandali as a playwright-lyricist. From there, he moved to film-making when the theatre group expanded its box-office draw by producing ‘Krishnarjun Yuddha’, starring the group’s writer-actor Chintamanrao Kolhatkar. Unlike other films produced by Sangeet Natak companies (e.g. Lalitkaladarsh), the film succeeded commercially and he co-directed three more with the group’s owner-producer Vamanrao N Bhatt. He scripted the mythological ‘Pundalik’ (1936) and, according to his autobiography, he also co-directed the film with VN Bhatt.

He briefly studied film-making in the UK in 1938. In that same year, he published his first novel, ‘Ranangan’  on his return to India. He joined Prabhat Studios briefly to write Shantaram’s ‘Shejari’ / ‘Padosi’ (1941). In 1944, he returned to the studio to script ‘Ramshastri’, a re-edited version of which, credited to him, was later released as a children’s film entitled ‘Ramshastri Ka Nyay’. In 1945, he directed ‘Lakharani’ which incidentally is Guru Dutt’s début film. He went on to make classic melodramas for Baburao Pendharkar’s New Huns, Baburao Pai’s Famous Pics and Minerva Movietone. He wrote the script for Shantaram’s ‘Amar Bhoopali’ (1951). Later he directed the early productions of Ramsay Brothers, viz. ‘Rustom Sohrab’ (1963) and ‘Ek Nannhi Munni Ladki Thi’ (1970).

Vishram Bedekar worked in modernist frame defined by K Narayan Kale’s generation and GB Shaw. Most of his literary and film works recast stereotypes of pre-WW I Marathi social reform novels into the declamatory style of prose melodrama with increasingly complex storylines. As a playwright, his works include ‘Brahmakumari’, ‘Vaje Paool Apule’ and ‘Tilak Ani Agarkar’ (1980). In 1985, he published his autobiography – ‘Ek Jhaad Ani Don Pakshi’.
(Note: The above bio sketch of Vishram Bedekar is adapted from Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema.)

‘Lakharani’ is important for one reason – Guru Dutt made his acting debut with this film. Guru Dutt (9-7-1925 to 10-10-1964) did the role of Lachman, brother of the heroine Lakharani, in this film. After doing a basic course in dancing from the dance academy of the famous dancer Uday Shanker, in Almora, he joined Prabhat Studios as a choreographer. However, in his first film he was only an actor and an assistant director to Vishram Bedekar. In his second film ‘ Hum Ek Hain’ (1946), he worked as the choreographer and as an assistant to PL Santoshi, the debutant director of the film. Later he was assistant director to Anadinath Bannerjee for the film ‘Mohan’ (1947), to Amiya Chakravarty for the film ‘Girls School’ (1949) and to Gyan Mukherjee for the film ‘Sangram’ (1950). His first stint as an independent director came with iconic film ‘Baazi’ (1951).

Another actor Ramsingh had a major role in the film ‘Lakharani’. Earlier he had done a small role in the film ‘Ramshastri’ (1944). Ramsingh’s name is not very famous or well known, but in his times, he appeared as a hero and also in villain’s role in many films. Information about him was not available anywhere on the internet till today. For the first time, this information is appearing here today. His entry in films and his life story makes a very interesting read.

During the 1942 ‘Quit India’ movement, there was a riot in Allahabad. Police opened fire and along with several other people, Secretary of All University Students Union also was killed. Fearing a backlash from college students, the Government closed down all colleges and vacated the hostels. As a result of this, two persons became homeless. One was Ramchandra Thakur – later to become famous as Kavi Pradeep; and the other was Ramsingh – who became an actor.

After the riots, instead of informing his family about his welfare, Ramsingh left for Bombay and then went on to Poona, to become an actor. He was tall, fair and handsome. V Shantaram hired him as an assistant in the studio. Because he never returned home, his family thought that he must have been killed in the riots and grieved.

One day one of the villagers came to their house and told excitedly, that he had seen a Hindi film and in that film, an actor looked exactly like Ramsingh. The family went to the town and saw the film. Lo and behold ! there he was. Looking just like Ramsingh. Anxiously a group of elders reached Prabhat Studio in Poona and enquired. The officials brought them face to face with their own son – Ramsingh !! Everyone was happy. It seems he did not contact his household just to avoid the police investigations, as he too was an active participant in the agitation.

Ramsingh was born into a rich zamindar family of village Ishanpur in Pratapgarh (UP), in 1920. After graduating, while still doing his MA, he joined films. His first film was ‘Ramshastri’ (1944), then came ‘Chand’ (1944), ‘Lakhrani’ (1945) and ‘Hum Ek Hain (1946) – all Prabhat films. While with Prabhat Studios, he became friendly with Dev Anand and Guru Dutt. In his later years, they would give him a role in almost every film they made.

In his other films, Ramsingh worked with heroine Ranjit Kumari (real name Ranjit Kaur), to whom he got married later on. He was already married while in school and also had 3 children from his first wife. From the second marriage he got 4 children.

Ramsingh played hero, villain and character roles in 69 films. Some of his notable films, besides the four films from Prabhat Studios are, ‘Gaon’ (1947), ‘Shaheed’ (1948), ‘Khidki’ (1949), ‘Aparadhi’ (1950) – he was the hero, opposite to Madhubala, ‘Sargam’ (1950), ‘Sangram’ (1950), ‘Shrimati ji’ (1952),  ‘Jaal’ (1952), ‘Baaz’ (1953) etc. In the latter part of his career, he only got insignificant roles in B and C grade films and mythologicals. His last films were ‘Sati Sulochana’ (1969), ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’ (1971) and ‘Mere Bhaiya’ (1972); the last two being released after he retired from films.

When film ‘Jaal’ (1952) was imported into West Pakistan (on the East Pakistan quota), the Pak film industry started an agitation against Indian films, demanding a total ban on Indian films in Pakistan, as they believed the Indian films were killing their business. Leader of this agitation was WZ Ahmed, once a successful director/producer in India (from the erstwhile Shalimar Films of Poona and the mentor and husband of actress Neena). Consequently, Indian films were banned in Pakistan, at a later stage.

Ramsingh returned to his native place with Ranjit Kumari and children in 1970 and started doing agriculture. The then UP Chief Minister HN Bahuguna was his classmate and a very good friend. Ramsingh approached him. To help him, Bahuguna established the UP Film Corporation and made Ramsingh its chairman. However, due to political turmoil in the country, Bahuguna left congress and joined the off shoot party Congress For Democracy, against Indira Gandhi. As a result the film corporation was wound up and Ramsingh returned to the agriculture business again. He started drinking heavily, against medical advise and died in 1984, in his village.
(Note: The above bio sketch of Ramsingh is adapted with thanks, from Javed Hamid’s forthcoming book ‘हिन्दी सिनेमा के कुछ जाने अंजाने फनकार’.)

The spelling of film title – ‘Lakharani’, was an enigma. In many places, including the Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, the film is spelt as LAKHRANI, while the HFGK says LAKHARANI. To get the correct information, I wrote to Shri Harmandir Singh ji. He promptly sent me a copy of the film booklet and confirmed that the correct name is LAKHARANI only. Thanks, Hamraz ji. The cast of the film is Durga Khote, Monica Desai, Azuri, Sapru, Ramsingh, Guru Dutt, etc. The story of this film is,

Bichwa (Durga Khote) is the queen of a devout untouchable community, which is not permitted to enter any temple. Her daughter Lakharani marries the prince from a community of atheists and hence is excommunicated by her own tribe.The devout group has their devotion tested by economic setbacks and a major conflict erupts between them and the atheists’ community. But God materialises on earth, thus solving the problems of belief and its attendant conflicts. Untouchability is abolished and they all can enter temples and worship also.

The film has 6 songs. Though the record numbers are given by HFGK, the name of singers is not mentioned for any song. The lyricist is Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the composer is Master Krishnarao Phulambrikar. No songs were found on the net or the You Tube, so I turned to our in-house collector, Sudhir ji. He promptly informed me that he has 4 songs of this film. On my request he not only sent me 2 songs, but also uploaded today’s song on my request. Thank you Sudhir ji, you are a great help indeed.

Lakharani makes her debut on this Blog today. Enjoy its first ever song. . .

(Ed Note: The title line of this song is modified, after listening to the song. In the Geet Kosh, this song corresponds to the song at sl. no. 6, which is listed as “Ab Moti Giraane Lagi Saawan Ki Ghataayen”. After listening to the song, it is observed that the refrain “Ik Gori Ki Aankhon Se. . .” is repeated after each antaraa, and is the more appropriate title line for the song.)

mujhe pyaar hua hai

अब मोती गिराने लगीं सावन की घटाएँ
बगिया में बिखरने लगीं बुलबुल की सदाएं

हा हा हाहा

खिलने के लिए फूल भी तैयार हुआ है

सुंदर मेरी आशाओं का संसार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है

ओ कोयल दुनिया को सुनाओ ये फसाना
ओ पंछीओ गाओ मेरी दुनिया को जगाना
ओ पंछीओ गाओ मेरी दुनिया को जगाना
अब हाथ पकड़ हाथ से इक़रार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है
इक गोरी की आँखों से मुझे प्यार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है

ओ गोरी की पायल ज़रा झंकार सुना दे
ये भेद मेरे दिल का ज़माने को सुना दे॰॰ए॰॰ए
आबाद मेरे फूलों का संसार हुआ है

इक गोरी की आँखों से मुझे प्यार हुआ है

ओ नदिया की लहरों ये किनारे को बता दो
तूफान की मौजों को मेरा हाल सुना दो॰॰ओ॰॰ओ
दो लहरों में मिल जाने का इक़रार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है
इक गोरी की आँखों से मुझे प्यार हुआ है

Wow and wow, what a song. Same story, same pattern – production house is obscure, film is obscure, actors not so well accepted as grade A material, music director not so well recognized as top of the line. And that is where we find some the most titillating gems of music. Under different circumstances, this song could have been top of charts. E.g. if this song was performed on screen by, say, Shammi Kapoor, well then it would have been treated as a hit, and would have found its place in the listings of timeless classics of Rafi Sb’s fun songs.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 33
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

wo jab yaad aaye
bahut yaad aaye

yes, bahut yaad aaye. . .  that voice – the magic, the magnetism, the feeling of surreal contentment that descends into the being, and ensconces it with a joyous delight. It is a voice, that now lives only in our memories, or in the ethereal sound waves. The memories are such, they will never be detached till the breaths last. And the sound – they say in our culture that sound is forever; it lives in the space for all times to come.  And so will this voice. This voice – of Rafi Sb. This voice that went to sleep 36 years ago, today. 36 years seem to be a long time, a third of a human life already. But it seems just like, well, recently. And the affinity and the magic of this voice has only deepened with time.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, with all humility and respect and love.

Missing Films of 1960s – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

At the mention of the name ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’, the mind automatically goes back to the 1948 film, with some wondrous songs like “Ik Dil Ke Tukde Hazaar Huye” sung by Rafi Sb, “Tere Nainon Ne Chori Kiya” sung by Suraiya, and “Itne Door Hain Huzoor Kaise Mulakat Ho” in the voice of Surinder Kaur. The iconic songs of that film were composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The Voice of Mukesh #68
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Such discoveries do not happen often. Finding unknown songs that one is not aware of.  Today is one such occasion, and this Mukesh song is one such song. And the credit for searching it out and sending it to me, goes to Mahesh ji Mamadapur.  A simple email from him yesterday – saying that he has found a song online that he cannot locate on the blog.  Since we have definitely covered and accounted for, all songs of Mukesh till the mid 1950s, how come this song from the 1948 film ‘Mera Munna’ does not appear on our blog?  I scrambled to check, and I found the following.
