Today’s song is from a Musically Iconic film Bazaar-1949.

The film was made by Madhukar Pictures. It was based on a story by K.Amarnath, who also directed this film.The 16 songs of the film were written by Qamal Jalalabadi and the Music Director was Shyam Sundar- one of my favourite composers in Hindi.

1949 was the best year in the Golden Era of HFM. There were so many films offering evergreen, out of this world songs, that the audience did not know which film to see and which song to be heard. The sale of records registered a Record of Sales in 1949. 157 films were made in 1949. Barring the figure of 181 films in 1947 ( we know the reasons), 1949 produced the maximum films from 1931 to 1984 – a period of 50++ years. What’s more, almost every alternate film gave superb songs. Nearly every Music Director of Hindi films was present in 1949, with his film.

This was also a transition period, when older composers were giving way to newer ones. Additionally, the competition between Naushad and C Ramchandra for the Number One position was on its peak. Though CR is my favourite composer, during the period 47 to 49, it was all the way Naushad who was the undisputed Numero Uno as far as quality and number of hit films were concerned. Here is a chart…

composer Year Number of films Hit films
C Ramchandra 1947 8
1948 3
1949 7
Total 18 4
Naushad 1947 2
1948 3
1949 4
Total 9 8

In this period Naushad’s strike rate of Hit films was more than double, compared to C Ramchandra percentagewise.

The year 1949 had absolutely heavenly showers of Musical Films. Some of such films were Andaz, Badi Behan, Barsaat, Bazaar, Dulari, Jeet, Apna Desh, Chandni Raat, Chaar Din, Sunehre Din, Shayar, Dillagi, Ek thi ladki, Kaneez, Laadli, Lahore, Mahal, Namoona, Patanga etc etc. The year 1949 also witnessed the introduction of A and U Censor certificates, the establishment of Films Division, the start of Navketan productions of Anand brothers and few other landmarks in Hindi film industry.

The cast of bazaar -49 was Nigar Sultana, Shyam, Gope, Cuckoo, Badri prasad, Yakub etc etc. Shyam was a very handsome actor. However, just like Ashok kumar, he too was first rejected in the screen test by Bombay Talkies. In the case of Ashok kumar, this rejection was overruled by Himanshu Rai- owner of Bombay Talkies and he became a Hero immediately. In case of Shyam, he had to wait for some more time.

Sunder Shyam Chadda (20 February 1920 – 25 April 1951) was born in Sialkot, now in Pakistan on February 20, 1920. Shyam’s grand father was a village Patwari, while his father worked as a store keeper with the Indian medical Service. So the young Shyam had to keep moving with his father in different cantonment towns of Punjab. A graduate from the Punjab University Shyam had a great fascination for films right from early childhood. It was Shyam’s uncle, late Tarachand Chadha, a subedar with the British Army who convinced Shyam’s father to allow Shyam to join the film line. Shyam came to Poona and worked with Prabhat cinema and stayed in lane no-9 Prabhat road in Adhar Bungalow.
In 1941 Shyam was called for a screen test by Bombay Talkies but met with no success. Determined to work in films, he took up the job of assistant director to JK Nanda and appeared in a Punjabi picture from Lahore. Shyam’s first film was Mann ka meet-44. Saigal’s death in 1947 created a void in the film world which was soon filled up by one of the leading heroes of those times, Ashok Kumar. Shyam ruled the world of celluloid from 1948 and 1951, when he was killed in a tragic accident.

With super hits like Dillagi, Patanga, Kaneej, Samadhi, Man Ka Meet and Shabistan under his belt, Shyam had scaled dizzying heights of super stardom in his late 20s. He was a true achiever in every sense of the word.

After Dillagi, in which he stared opposite Suraiya, which was released in 1949, he shot to stardom with the popular song Tu Mera Chand Mai Teri Chandni, a rage in those days.( this song was sung by singer Shyam kumar and not by actor Shyam)

He married a Muslim, Mumtaz Qureshi (nickname “Taji”), with whom he had a daughter, Pakistani TV actress Sahira Kazmi, married to actor Rahat Kazmi, and a son named Shakir (born two months after his death), a psychiatrist based in UK. His wife migrated to Lahore, Pakistan, after his premature death in 1951, along with her elder sister, Zeb Qureshi, who was an actress in Bombay. Mumtaz later married a gentleman, Ansari after Shyam’s death.

He acted with Munawar Sulltana in many films like Kaneez and Majboor. A highly educated person, Shyam wrote an article for Blitz, a leading film magazine of those times on his favourite heroines. He was a close personal friend of Saadat Hasan Manto and was the inspiration of many of his stories. Even after partition, their bond of friendship endured.

He died after a nasty fall from horseback, at the young age of 30 when destiny snuffed the life out of this versatile actor. It was an ill-fated day when he was shooting for Filimistan’s Shabistan directed by Vibhuti Mitra at Ghodbunder road near Borivali when the reins of the horse slipped from Shyam’s hand. He was thrown off the horse and received major injuries on his head and was rushed to the Bombay Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.

Fans from all over thronged to pay their respects to their loved hero at the Sonapur crematorium at the Bombay Kings road.

Even the BMC (Bombay Municipal Corporation) named the place where Shyam stayed in Chembur as Shyam Park. Though younger than Ashok Kumar , he played roles of the latter’s elder brother. After Ashok Kumar, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand , Shyam and Rehman are remembered most for their contribution to the field of Hindi cinema.

Shyam is incidentally survived by Younger brother, Harbans Chadha. Shyam was fond of his daughter Sahera but he did not live long to see his son, who was born a couple of month after his death. His son Shakir, who now lives in Pakistan with his mother Taji, who had migrated there after partition.

Filmography of Shyam’s films as a lead hero:

1948-Majboor,Shikayat,Bazaar,Chandani Raat,
1949- Char Din, Dada, Dillagi, Kaneez, Naach, Patanga, Raat Ki Rani,
1950- Choti Bhabiu, Meena Bazaar, Nirdosh, Samadhi, Sangeeta, Suraj Mukhi, Wafa , Kale Badal,
1951- Shabistan
Shyam acted in 24 films, in all.

There are many versions of how Shyam died during the shooting. However , here is the report from an eye witness, who was present there on that day and this happened before his eyes. The horse Shyam rode, was owned by him.

Jimmy Bharucha, one of the best Horse Trainers in India, had himself been trained in foreign countries. He had opened a Horse Training School in Poona. Yesteryear actor SHYAM was one of his earliest students. For all his films, Shyam used the same horse from Bharucha. Actor Shyam had died while doing a stunt for film Shabistan-51.

Whenever he talked about Shyam, Bharucha got emotional. The truth about Shyam’s death….

That fateful day, Shyam was in a very cheerful mood. He joked with other artists as usual. The film was SHABISTAN. He had to do a stunt scene on a horse. His double was kept ready. However Shyam insisted on doing that dangerous shot himself that day. The scene started and was also completed successfully. There was a round of applauding claps.

Shyam was getting down from the horse and suddenly,the horse started running. Shyam’s foot got stuck in the stirr-up and he was dragged some distance before people ran and stopped the horse. Shyam was unconscious. He was immediately taken to the hospital, but he died-with his make up and costume still on him ! ( from an article by Vasant Bhalekar in book ‘Ruperi Smaran Yatra’ by Prof. Subhash Savarkar and article ‘Anipals’ by Mala Doshi ).

Film Bazaar was released on 4-3-1949 at Excelsior Cinema in Bombay. The Film India magazine of May 1949 had published a review of this film. Once for a change, Baburao Patel had good words about a film and its music. The story of the film, as outlined in this review is this…

An impecunious poet, Parwana (Shyam), runs away from home in company with his pal Jagu (Gope) to join a theatrical company. On the way, they come across a gypsy camp and Jagu succeeds in picking up Koel (Cuckoo), a gypsy dancer, as his sweetheart. Parwana and Jagu soon cross swords with Khanna ( Yakub) of Khanna Theatres, whose main attraction is Bijli ( NIgar Sultana), a beautiful and temperamental dancer. Bijli is attracted by Parwana’s poetry and physique and we soon see Parwana, Jagu and Koel working in Khanna Theatres.
Parwana and Bijli begin to love each other and Khanna doesn’t like the look of things, being himself in love with Bijli. Things soon reach a show-down stage and Bijli walks out of Khanna Theatres arm-in-arm with Parwana and his stooges. The new team tries to start its own theatre business, but the love-stricken Khanna becomes vindictive and with his influence and money hounds them out from place to place till Parwana and Bijli are ruined and heartbroken. In a desperate attempt to save Parwana’s poetic soul, Bijli, sacrificing her love for him, compromises matters with Khanna, who helps to put Parwana on the stage once again. But, Parwana needs more than mere success to feel happy and very soon he returns heartbroken to his parental home, a sadder but wiser man.

Now Parwana dedicates himself to national service and we soon come to the climax, in which Khanna, realizing the intensity of Bijli’s love for Parwana, gracefully gives her up and all rush to a public meeting for their individual professions and confessions. Evidently, anyplace seems to be good enough for the Punjabis to vomit their love and a large crowd does not deter Bijli from vomiting her love for Parwana on a public platform. It ends well.

Film Bazaar was remade as ‘Naya Andaz-1956’ starring Kishore kumar and Meena kumari . This film also had excellent music by O P Nayyar. Interestingly, this film also was directed by same K.Amarnath only.

Film Bazaar-49 had 16 songs. 14 are already discussed here. Today’s song is the 15th song.( I am surprised how this song remained uncovered so long. May be my good luck !) . The only song now remains to be covered is ” Nazar se mil jayegi nazar”. HFGK is silent about its singer, but also has a note that this song was removed from the film. This song’s record number is also not given, leading to a guess that, may be this song, having been removed from film, was not made into a record. In that case, today’s song is the last song of this film to be covered. Worth thinking.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 30
——————————————————————————————

May 1st 2019. International Labour Day. Also happens to be the date when the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat came into being from the erstwhile Bombay state in the year 1960. This happened as a consequence of the States Re-organisation Act of 1956 which defined boundaries for the states within India on the basis of languages. The Bombay State, that was formed by this act, was composed of different areas where Marathi, Gujarati, Kutchi and Konkani were spoken. There was a movement since 1956, which demanded that the state of Bombay be re-organised further on the basis of areas where Gujarati and Kutchi was a major language and other where Marathi and Konkani was majorly spoken. So, The Bombay Reorganization Act was enacted in the Indian Parliament on 25th April 1960 and the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra were born on 1st May 1960. That makes Gujarat and Maharashtra 59 years old today.

On the day these two states were born Prafulla Chandra Dey turned 41. He had already made a debut in the world of film music in the ’40s with the movie “Tamanna” which had music by his paternal uncle Krishna Chandra Dey and had a hit duet with Suraiya “Jago Aayee Usha Ponchi Boley Jago”. From then on he made his way into the hearts of music lovers across the country and sang in many Indian langauges – Bhojpuri,Magadhi, Maithili, Ounjabi, Assamese, Odia, Konkani, Sindhi, Gujarati, Marathi, Konkani, Malayalam and Nepali in addition to Hindi and Bengali.

He was trained in singing initially by his paternal uncle Krishna Chandra Dey and Ustaad Dabir Khan. He was credited with the success of Indian Classical Movies in Indian commercial movies. How can anyone forget the Raga-based songs “Sur na saje kya gaaun maain” or “Kaun aaya mere mann ke dwaare payal ki jhankar liye”. But his “Aao twist karien” and “ae bhai zara dekh ke chalo” were equally popular. He might have sung his first duet “subah ki pehli kiran” with Kishore Kumar in 1952 but their association on “ek chatur naar karke shingaar” is unforgettable. He has shared the recording studio with all the major singers of the time till the ’90s haing sung under the baton of most of India’s music directors beginning with K.C. Dey in “Tamanna” in 1942 to Shamir Tandon in 2006- that last song of Prafulla Chandra Dey a.k.a Manna Dey has been posted on the blog Duniya Waalon Ko Nahin Kuchh Bhi Khabar. Almost 102 music directors.

Now coming to the Blog Ten Year Challenge the songs that were posted on the 1st of May 2009 were:-
(1) Daa dir daaraa.. meri laadli(Andaaz)(1949) it had 2 comments and the movie is YYIIPPEEEED!
(2) Ghadi Ghadi Mora Dil Dhadke (Madhumati)(1958) had 7 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED!
(3) Masti mein chhed ke taraana koyi dil ka (Haqeeqat)(1964) had 4 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED
(4) Naach meri jaan fataafaat (Main Sundar Hoon)(1971) had 11 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED!!
(5) Do kadam tum bhi chalo (Ek Haseena Do Deewaane)(1972) had 6 songs with a multiple version song of which 2 are posted. (the sad Mukesh solo version is not yet posted)
(6) Haan pehli baar ek ladki mera haath pakad kar (Aur Kaun)(1979) had 12 comments and 1 out of 4 songs of this movie has been posted

The song with this post is from the 1972 romantic movie “Ek Haseena Do Diwane” which was produced by RG Films Kantibhai Zaveri and directed by S.M. Abbas. the movie had Jeetendra and Babita in the lead with Vinod Khanna as the villain. Om Prakash, Nirupa Roy, Shammi- played the elders and Johnny Walker headed a large supporting cast. The movie’s story in a nutshell as given by wikipedia-
Amar, the Nainital-based, orthodox and traditional person, obtains a degree in Engineering and re-locates to Bombay for employment. After doing so, he decides to assist his friend, Prakash, woo a wealthy and educated woman, Neeta but ends up falling in love and marrying her himself much to the chagrin of her father. Shortly after the marriage, he takes her to visit his widowed-schoolteacher mother, but she has gone on an outing. They return, and shortly thereafter arguments ensue, which escalate to such an extent that Amar assaults her, compelling her to return to her parents’ home. When she insists on a divorce – Amar refuses until and unless she lives with him for 15 days in order to create a false scenario of a happy marriage for his mother.

The song with today’s post is sung by Johnny Walker in the movie with two unknown ladies pestering him. it was a song I loved the instant I saw it. it has interlude music lifted from “Rattan”, “Pyaasa” and “Badi Behan” to add the comic element. It is written by Qamar Jalalabadi and Kalyanji Anandji were the music composers. The song brings out the full range that Manna Da was capable of.

Here I must confess that had I not attended the R.M.I.M last month i would have forgotten that Manna Dey would have turned 100 today if he had been there. Thinking of Manna Dey ……….

# Superstar Child Artist – Jr. Mehmood # 5
—————————————————————————

Welcome all to this fifth article in this series, where I am presenting songs picturised on Superstar Child Artist Junior Mehmood and simultaneously exploring his filmography along with his biographical information too.

So far, we have enjoyed the following songs under this series;

Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey

Na koi paisa na ilm

Mera naam hai Mehmood

Birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya

As I have mentioned in my articles earlier, Junior Mehmood was a familiar name for us children who were growing and still young in the years of the ‘seventies’, and he was the most loved ‘child artist’ in those years of early seventies.

And because of those memories and nostalgia associated with the movies he acted, some of the songs picturised on him became a part of my permanent memory.

Today’s song is one such song and which surprisingly have remained to be posted on the blog so far.

Naeem Sayyad whom we know by the name of Junior Mehmood was born on 15th November’1956 in a middle-class family in Mumbai. His father was a railway engine driver in the railways and Naeem was among the six siblings in the family.

His elder brother was a photographer and used to work for films and during one such shoot when little Naeem accompanied him to watch the shooting it so happened that when a child star working in the movie ‘Kitna Naazuk Hai Dil’ (shelved) was not able to deliver his dialogues properly that little Naeem took a dig at him saying ‘you cannot even speak these simple lines’. The director of the movie was present there and he asked little Naeem if he can speak those lines without mistake and there little Naeem got his first break to work in Hindi movies and the rest is history, as he was noticed (on the sets of ‘Suhaag Raat-1968’) by the great comedian Mehmood who not only give his name to him and recommended him to many producers/directors. Thereafter it was not looking back for Junior Mehmood and he had gone on to become the most famous and beloved ‘child artist’ during those years and also one of the richest among other junior artists then.

Junior Mehmood celebrated his 62nd birth anniversary during last month (15th November) and though I personally wished him on his birthday on the 14th evening itself I got late in sending this article for the blog due to some hectic work schedule at workplace. (I also apologise to our Editors for the delay on my part in sending this article to them, even though I had sent them a message of sending the article then).

Well, coming back to the today’s song, it is from the 1970 movie ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani’.
Yes, the movie which is mostly famous for its song ‘samaa hai suhaana suhaana, nashe mein jahaan hai’. And very aptly this movie was launched with this song on the blog ( almost ten years back now 🙂 ) in 2009.

I also mentioned in my earlier articles under this series that I am trying to list out the filmography of Junior Mehmood since I found that the filmography mentioned by various sources had some discrepancies in it.

‘Naunihaal-1967’ was his first released movie.

He shot to fame with his performance in ‘Bramhachari-1968’ wherein he also performed on Mehmood’s ‘ham kaale hain to kya hua’ (from ‘Gumnaam-1965’).

Mehmood was his ‘Guru’.

In ‘1971’ he again performed on Mehmood’s famous ‘Mehbooba mehbooba bana leo mijhe dulha’ (from ‘Sadhu Aur Shaitaan-1968’) in the movie ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong’ wherein Mehmood and I.S. Johar were the main leads.
I have mentioned the above in my earlier article in this series here.

We also saw him repeating Mehmood’s ‘Hamjoli-1966’ act in the song ‘birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya’, which was covered in the previous article in this series.

However, during the preparation of today’s article I came across a link from the movie ‘Baalak-1969’ where Junior Mehmood is performing on Shashi Kapoor’s ‘Affo Khudaa’ from the 1965 movie ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’. I am giving this link for interested readers to watch it here (just watch it and enjoy 🙂 ).

In the song being presented today we can see him doing a ‘Shammi Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar and Mehmood’ 😊

From 1967 to 1970 he acted in twenty-three movies as mentioned in the table given below.

And from this list we can guess how popular he was in those years.
(The HFGK Vol IV (1961-1970) does not mention the release dates of the movies so it is difficult to arrange the movie according to their date of release unless otherwise I watch each movie and note down its date of release from its certificate.)

‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani-1970’ was directed by T. Prakash Rao for ‘Vijaya International, Bombay’.

It was produced by B. Nagi Reddi & Chakrapani.

It had Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Bharati, Gajanan Jagirdar, Sulochana Chatterjee, Shabnam, Maruti, Praveen Pal, Jalal Agha and Rakesh Roshan with Mahesh Kumar, Baby Sonia, Master Ripple and Junior Mehmood and supported by many others.

Om Prakash, Jagdeep and Shashikala made a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

The story of this movie was written by Poovanan M.A while the dialogues were written by Inder Raj Anand. Editing of this movie was done by C.P. Jamboolingam.

This movie had total five songs written by Rajinder Krishan (2), Hasrat Jaipuri (2) and Qamal Jalalabadi (1).
Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Hemlata, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

(going by the titles of this movie I guess it was passed by the Censor Board on 04.11.1970) …

This movie ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani-1970’ is important from the point of view of Junior Mehmood films because he was nominated for the National Award for the best child actor for this movie. However, it awarded to Rishi Kapoor for the movie ‘Mera Naam Joker-1970’.

I was curious to know how he had felt that time and want to know from Junior Mehmood himself. When asked about it, he was very humble to say that it was a quite happy moment in his life as he was appreciated and he didn’t have any regrets on not winning the award then.

Today’s song is sung by Hemlata and written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Let us now enjoy the song …

Note *** (there are some parts of the old songs of Hindi movies used in this song of which the lyrics were already available on the blog and I have copied the respective ‘antaras/song’ from the blog and reproduced here, instead of noting down the lyrics again)

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 73 # Aaayo aayo Navratri tyohaar #
———————————————————————-

Season’s greetings and best wishes to all for the Navratri Festival starting today (10 october 2018)!!!

I have mentioned in a few of my earlier write-ups that festivals too bring back many memories and they in turn bring back memories of songs which we have heard years before… in my case ‘years before’ generally means ‘in my childhood days or in those years when I was growing’ 🙂

Today’s song is one such song which normally comes to my mind during celebration of the ‘Navratri festival’ every year. I was under impression that this song must have been posted on the blog earlier, however much to my surprise, this song is mot yet covered till now. And that gives me this opportunity to share this song today on the blog.

I vaguely remember that in our colony where we were staying then (for me after my birth in 1968 to 1984 when I was in eleventh standard :)) during Navratri Festival or Durga Pooja Festival the Durga Pooja Idol would be worshipped in the Colony Club or special ‘pandals’ arranged near the ‘Club Building’ and the ‘Stage’ (meant for the various programs held during the festival). However, unlike the ‘Ganpati Festival’ during which various ‘cultural programs’ would be held, during ‘Navratri’ it was mostly the staging of ‘Ramleela’ for nine/ten days.

I do not have any more special memories except a few songs that were played on the loud speakers and the “Ramleela” which I vaguely remember. Ttoday’s song is one such song that was frequently played on loud speakers during this festival and had been lying dormant in my memories since then.

The song that I am going to present today is from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong’.
Going by the date of passing of this movie by the Censor Board I was almost three years old then, when the movie was released. Johar whenever he combined with Mehmood in movies and Mehmood specially for his movies were always a point of discussion among the elders in the family. I remember watching ‘Johar Mehmood in Goa’ and ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong’ with my Uncles. I do not remember if I also watched ‘Johar Mehmood in Kashmir’. These movies had good songs or good entertaining songs, so the songs were also not easily forgettable given their performances on these songs.

“Johar Mehmood in Hongkong” (1971) was produced by Madan Chopra and K.Z. Sheth. It was directed by S.A. Akbar.

It was M.O. Bawazir’s presentation for Mahesh Ashish.

The movie had I.S. Johar, Mehmood, Sonia Sahni, Aruna Irani, Tiwari, Kamal Kapoor, Tuntun, Manorama, Madhumati, Haroon, and Pran. Agha, Mukri, Jr. Mehmood, Polson, Shaikh, B.B. Bhalla, Raj Kishore, Khairati, Murad appear as Guest Artistes in this movie.

This movie was written by I.S. Johar who also wrote the screenplay and dialogues for this movie. Vithal Bankar was the editor for this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji Anandji who were assisted by Babla and where Parte was the arranger and Frank Fernand the Conductor.
There were Six songs in this movie penned by Qamar Jalalabadi (four songs) and two songs are jointly credited to Qamar Jalalabadi and Indeevar (as per HFGK).

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh, Shamshad Begam, Manna Dey and Usha Timothi gave their voices to the songs in this movie.
As per HFGK Lakshmi Shankar, Usha Khanna and Usha Mangeshkar’s voice has been in one song each, however their names are not mentioned in the titles of this movie (available on YT).

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 04.01.1971.

So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Today’s song happens during the ‘Navratri Celebrations’ which all ‘Hindustanis’ living in Hong Kong celebrate every year and send the ‘Garba matka’ to India. Our heroes Mahesh and Ramesh (readers can easily guess who is Mahesh and who is Ramesh) who successfully flee away from jail with other accomplices after giving ‘Jamal ghota’ to Kamal Kapoor, Pran & Co and reach Murad (who is head of the Indian Embassy in the movie I guess) with the ‘secret formula’. Murad advices them that the formula can be easily sent to India in this ‘matka’.

‘Ambe maiyya’ ab hamaari aur hamaare desh ki raksha tere haath hai, desh ke drohi e pujaariyon ko Bharat bhejne se pehle hi khatm kar dena chahte hai, magar Ambe maiyya agar Ramesh aur Mahesh khatm ho jaayen to tu apni chhah bhujaaon se chhah Ramesh aur Mahesh paida kar ke desh ke drohiyon ko chakkar mein daal dena.
Jai Ho …

That is what Ramesh praises to Ambe Maa before the song …

And that is why we have this patriotic garba and seeking the blessings of the goddess to save the mother land and our country …

The movie ends with this song on a happy note where the enemies die their own death and our heroes board the flight for India dancing and enjoying with the ‘secret formula’ in the ‘Garba Pot’.

From today the auspicious festival starts all over India.In Gujarat especially the excitement and preparations for the festival had already begun much earlier when I was there. The ‘garba and dandia’ bhajans and songs had already started playing on in shops, restaurants and public places where the celebrations were to be held.

I had wiitnessed all that during my brief two weeks stay in Gujarat. I have returned back to my work place as per planning and had to travel on Sunday and reaching my destination on this Monday evening >:)I am missing all that excitement a lot now 🙂

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Mukesh. And since it involved Singer Mukesh I thought I should consult our Mahesh ji if I can do write-up with this song and he immediately responded that I can ‘go ahead’, thanks to Mahesh ji.

I also take this opportunity to wishing all a very ‘Happy Navratri Festival’ and may it be peaceful and enjoying for all and may the Goddess blessed us all with her blessings and gives us energy to do good for all and fight the evil within and around us …

Let us now enjoy this song composed by Kalyanji Anandji and sung by Mohd Rafi and Mukesh …

Today’s song is from the film Mera Munna-1948. This film was made by Minerva Movietone. However, it was not directed by Sohrab Modi, but by an outsider- Vishram Bedekar.

Nostalgia ! This feeling is very common amongst Senior Citizens. However, middle age or young people too may indulge in Nostalgia of their favourite times in life or even an incident. Nostalgia is defined as ” Sentimental yearning for the past”. Everyone has some sweet memories of the past. When alone,one indulges in Nostalgia. Sometimes it is shared with the near and dear ones. Many times, an event, an old friend, an old movie or a film songn or an old house,town or anything on this Earth can trigger Nostalgia, if happy memories are connected with it. When you visit your first company where you started your career, surely Nostalgic memories will haunt you.

Same thing happened to C.Ramchandra, when he visited Minerva Movietone in 1948 to sign a contract for giving music to its film ‘Mera Munna’. It was Minerva Movietone, where, in 1936, he had begun his training in Music Composition. After his first film as a Hero-” Naganand “-35 bombed badly ( the first show had only 7 people in the audience-who also left in the interval. Naturally, there were no further shows of the film ! ), he shifted from Kolhapur to Bombay, looking for suitable jobs.

One day he learnt that a big actor from a drama company was about to start a film studio and that recruitment was going on, he decided to try his luck there. Selling a Gold medal he had won in some competition, he stitched a coat and went for the interview. It was Sohrab Modi who took his interview and appointed him as an assitant worker on a salary of Rs. 15 pm. In the two and half to three years that he spent in Minerva, in the beginning of his struggle, he learnt many things.

At Minerva, his first teacher was Bundu Khan as MD. Second was Habib Khan. Next was B.S.Hoogan. C Ramchandra learnt notation writing and use of western instruments for indian ragas. After Hoogan, came Meer Saheb. He was truly a very knowledgeable musician and C Ramchandra learnt many things from him. Actually the training of Meer Saheb gave him the confidence that he too could give music and make tunes. During Meer Saheb’s tenure in Minerva, C Ramchandra became friendly with an young actor and director- Master Bhagwan. He was acting and directing a film ‘Bahadur Kissan’-38. Meer Saheb was the Music Director for this film. Most work was done by C Ramchandra, on behalf of Meer saheb. During this period Bhagwan and he became very good friends.

One day Bhagwan offered C Ramchandra an opportunity to give music to a Tamil film, which Bhagwan was to direct. C Ramchandra gladly did it. After doing one more Tamil film in Madras/Kerala, C Ramchandra got his first Hindi film ” Sukhi Jeevan”-42 as a music director-thanks to Master Bhagwan who was its director. This was the beginning of an eventful and illustrious career of C Ramchandra, who gave music in 112 films, composing 947 songs. He also sang 198 songs in 77 films during his career.

When Sohrab Modi sent a call to him to come for composing songs for one of his films, C Remembered remembered all this. While in Minerva, he knew Modi as a strict disciplinarian and a kind soul. In the subsequent period, C Ramchandra was impressed with the extraordinary success of Minerva movies like Pukar-39, Sikander-41 and Prithwi Vallabh-43. Afterall, his and Minerva’s careers had started together only ! Though he had become a famous and successful Music Director now with films like Shehnai, Saajan, Nadiya ke paar and Khidki etc amongst his 30 odd films, he went to meet Modi.

There was a tremendous change in circumstances when he left Minerva in 1938 and today when Minerva requested him to work for them in 1948. He had become so big that he could have easily refused to work for them, but he was not ungrateful. C Ramchandra has described this meeting to one of his friends, Isak Mujawar thus…

” When I entered the office of Minerva, after 10 years, I realised that while I had grown in my stature, Minerva had lost some of its sheen and its place among the top studios. Whatever I had learned while working here had made my foundation so strong that I could never repay Minerva’s debt fully. As I entered, I saw the same tall, well built Sohrab Modi and by his side Mehtab was sitting next to him. As soon as I crossed the door, both of them stood up. I was embarrassed. I went ahead and touched his feet. He murmured something and hugged me. I did Namaste to Mehtab ji. Modi talked briefly about his film and their expectations about the music. Then with a little hesitation, he asked me my fees. I smiled and said, “Give me just One Rupee, sir. That’s my fees for Minerva”. However, they did not agree and a nominal token fees was fixed. I signed the contract “.

Those were the days when artistes gratefully acknowledged the help they received in their early careers !

There is a name in the film’s cast- Wazir Mohammed Khan, who made his name written in Hindi film History for ever, for being the first ever singer on the screen, when he sang ” de de khuda ke naam par “, in film Aalam Ara-1931, India’s first Talkie film. Despite my efforts, I could not get any information about him, from any source at my disposal.

W.M.Khan was a Pathan. His first film was ‘Alam Ara’-31 and his last film was also Aalam Ara-73. he sang a song in the first film and again the same song in the similarly titled film Alam Ara-56. I saw him on the screen first time in film Kabuliwala-61, in which he lip synched the famous song ” Aye mere pyare watan…”. W.M.Khan acted in 73 films. He sang 6 songs in 4 films, namely Alam Ara-31, Sair e paristan-34, Dard e dil-34 and after 22 years he sang his first song again in film Alam Ara-56- though no record was issued for it. When he acted in the third version of Aalam Ara in 73, he became the first male actor to have worked in 3 films with the same title, from the very first Talkie film. The next and the only other actor to achieve this feat was Ashok kumar, who acted in Kangan-39, kangan-59 and kangan-72. The only female actress to achieve this feat was Sulochana ( Ruby Meyers) who had acted in Anarkali-28, Anarkali-35 and Anarkali-53.

Today’s song is the second song in a span of one month, which talks of ‘going to Bombay’, after a song from film ‘Kirti’-42, posted on 19-7-2018. The singer’s name of today’s song is not mentioned in HFGK. I hear 2 separate voices in the song, but people with better hearing than me can know more about the voices.

“Jalti Nishaani” (1957) was directed by Harish for Emsheth production, Bombay. The movie had Kamal Kapoor, Geeta Bali, Kuldeep Kaur, Sundar, Ulhaas, Chaman Puri etc in it.

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from this movie. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

I am unable to make out the lyrics of the chorus which is either gibberish or words in some other language. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what these worlds could be.

“Suhaagraat”(1968) was directed by R Bhattacharya for A J Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Rajshree, Johny Walker, Mehmood, Dhumal, Shabnam, Prakash, Sulochana, Jankidas, Moti Chatterji, Bipin Gupta etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Suhaagraat”(1968) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a village fair dance song on Rajshree who is seen singing and dancing alongwith many other dancers. She singles out Jeetendra for her advances, while talking about becoming grown up (laagi re julmi umariya) which causes her to fall down frequently (main gir gir jaaun).

I have noticed that Lata avoided singing cabarat songs, but she did not realise that such village fair songs are also sort of like native cabarat dances, as far as their dance steps as well as lyrics are concerned. 🙂
