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.

“Chandu”(1958) was directed by Manju (Harold Lewis) for N R Productions, Bombay. The movie had Daljit, Meena, Shasikala, Pran, Gulab, Gope, Sunder, Om Prakash, Mehmood, Harun, Satish Batra etc.

The movie had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Chandu”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi and Geeta Dutt. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bipin Baabul.

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 well-known fact that Shailendra wrote maximum number of songs for the music director, Shankar-Jaikishan (around 365 songs) out of about 750 songs he wrote during his life time. The second in line among music directors was Salil Chowdhury for whom Shailendra wrote around 105 songs. The third place was taken by S D Burman for whom he wrote around 70 songs. There were others music directors for whom he wrote songs albeit in comparatively lesser numbers. They were Roshan, S N Tripathi, Hemant Kumar, Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra, Ravi, Dattaram, and Kishore Kumar.

With major chunk of Shailendra’s songs (around 90% his total songs) written for the music directors listed above, I was curious to know as who were the other music directors to whom Shailendra wrote songs probably for one or two films. I traced almost all ‘other’ music directors. They were Basant Prakash (‘Badnam’ 1952), Manohar Arora (‘Chingaari’, 1955), Mukul Roy (‘Sailaab’ 1956 and ‘Detective’ 1958), Jimmy (Shrimatiji, 1952), Ninu Mazumdar (‘Bhai Saheb’, 1954), Sardul Kwatra (‘Pilpli Saheb, 1954 and ‘Tis Maar Khan’, 1955), Shivram (‘Naya Kadam’ 1958), Shailesh Mukherjee (‘Savera; 1958), Chitrgupt and Gajanan (‘Kal Hamaara Hai’ 1959), Kalyanji-Anandji (‘Satta Baazar’ (1959), Pandit Ravi Shankar (‘Anuradha’ 1960), R D Burman (‘Chhote Nawab’ 1961), Suhrid Kar (‘Kaanch Ki Gudiya’ 1961), and Sapan-Jagmohan (‘Begaana’ 1963).

But the surprise catch among ‘other’ music director to whom Shailendra wrote a song was Nachiketa Ghosh who has composed music for only one Hindi film ‘25th July’ (1951). But Shailendra was not the lyricist for this film. It transpired that Shailendra did write a Hindi song for Nachiketa Ghosh but for a Bengali film ‘Indraani’ (1958). Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen were the lead actors in the film. The film is available on YT with English sub-title.

So here is probably Shailendra’s only Hindi song for a Bengali film, ‘Indraani’ (1958). There are 7 songs in the film of which one song is in Hindi. The song is ‘sabhi kuchh lutaakar huye hum tumhaare’ which is sung by Mohammad Rafi. Nachiketa Ghosh is the music director.

The background for this song is that Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen get married despite opposition from her parents as Uttam Kumar is unemployed. On the wedding night, their feelings for each other is reflected in this song through a wayside singer playing guitar. The mood of the song appears to me the same as that of songs like ek haseen shaam ko dil mera kho gaya.

The song in the video clip is longer than the audio clip (78 RPM record version) because of the repetition in the former of mukhda part in each antara. Also, there are short dialogues in Bengali between Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen during the interludes of the song.

What a lovely song which I heard for the first time. I have been mesmerized by Rafi’s rendition of antara part of the song. Just note, how he goes one octave higher but keep his rendition soft on the antara lines ‘kisi ka tu ho jaa’, ‘hai khaamosh hum bhi’ and ‘ye khwaabon ki duniya’.

Song-Sabhi kuchh lutaa kar huye ham tumhaare (Indraani)(Bangla)(1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Nachiketa Ghosh

Lyrics(based on Video Clip)

sabhi kuchh lutaa kar
huye hum tumhaare
ke hai jeet uski
jo dil aaj haare
ye khoya sa chanda
ye behke se taare
to phir kyun na machlen
armaan hamaare
sabhi kuchh lutaa kar

mohabbat mein kho jaa..aa
kisi ka tu ho jaa
falak se zameen tak huye ye ishaare
ke hai jeet uski
jo dil aaj haare
sabhi kuchh lutaa kar
huye hum tumhaare
ki hai jeet uski
jo dil aaj haare
sabhi kuchh lutaa kar

hai chupchaap wo bhi
hain khaamosh hum bhi
khule jaa rahe hain magar raaz saare
ke hai jeet uski
jo dil aaj haare
ye khoya sa chanda
ye behke se taare
to phir kyun na machlen
armaan hamaare
sabhi kuchh lutaa kar

wo rangeen duniya
wo khwaabon ki duniya
simat kar ke baahon mein aayi hamaare
ke hai jeet uski
jo dil aaj haare
sabhi kuchh lutaa kar
huye hum tumhaare
ke hai jeet uski
jo dil aaj haare
ye khoya sa chanda
ye behke se taare
to phir kyun na machlen
armaan hamaare
sabhi kuchh lutaa kar

“Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) an archtypically Manmohan Desai directed movie, reminds me of an indulgent parent who, when he comes back home to his little ones brings them lots and lot of goodies that the kids were so eagerly looking forward to. The kids just would not have enough of the goodies.

The movie, a multistarrer, which was a new fashion in India, after the success of “Sholay”(1975), boasted a who is who of stars of those days- Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Shabana azmi, Neetu Singh were the three romantic pairs. Pran and Nirupa Roy play the parents. Villains are Jeewan, Ranjeet, Yusuf Khan. Other characters in the movie include Mukri, Nazeer Hussain, Kamal Kapoor, Pratima Devi etc. Even Helen makes a cameo appearance.

Most people who are into HFM have already watched this movie. That too multiple times. If you are an Indian, then this movie must have influences you in one way or the other. This movie has scenes, dialogues, coincidences etc that have become stuff of legends. They also are constant source of jokes, memes, amusing anecdotes etc.

This movie had seven songs. Six songs from this movie have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs from the movie that have been discussed in the past :-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 My name is Anthony Gonsalves 3040 28-Sep-10
2 Parda hai parda 9189 23-Dec-13
3 Hamko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen 11111 9-May-15
4 Anhoni ko honi kar de honi ko anhoni 11963 31-Mar-16
4 Khoon khoon hota hai paani nahin 14896 26-Feb-19
5 Shirdi waale Saibaba aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali 15199 4-Sep-19

The discussions of these songs in the movie were no less fun than the fun that we may have had while watching this movie.

This song made its debut in the blog with the song My name is Anthony Gonsalves . The date was 29 september 2010. It was a guest post by a guest poster who had discovered the blog just a few months ago. Santosh Ojha, the contributor, was a diehard Amitabh Bachchan fan and he had watched this movie in Nagpur during its first run just days before his class X examination, not once but thrice !

His observations on the movie scenes and story, alongwith his school day experiences, makes this writeup a great fun to read.
In fact, this song itself has an amusing beginning:

You see the whole country of this system
is juxtapositioned by the hemoglobin in the atmosphere ,
because you are a sophisticated rhetorician
intoxicated by the exuberance of your own verbosity

🙂

The next song was covered three years later in 2013. This too was a guest post, and it was by Peevesie’s mom, who may have watched this movie a few million times.

The third song writeup from this movie turned out to be a very very special occasion for the blog. This song was the only song in history that has the voices of Mukesh, Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Lata together. This song was the post number 11111 for the blog and it was written by our own Sudhir Jee. It was a century post for him as well as for all the abovementioned legendary singer. It was a century post for Laxmikant Pyarelal as well.

Four more songs have been covered after that. Writeup for these songs were by Peevesie’s mom. Four writeups out of six ! It just shown how much the songs of this movie mean to her !

What is the only song left to be covered ? It is yet another fun song viz “Tayyab Ali Pyaar ka dushman hay haay”. This song is sung by Rafi and chorus, with a few words by Mukri. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a song where Akbar (Rishi Kapoor) is seen heckling Tayyab Ali (Mukri), the father of Salma (Neetu Singh), for coming in the way of their love.

This song, like the other songs of this movie, is best enjoyed while watching the movie in a movie hall in 1970s. The response of the public, especially the coin throwing front staller junta (appropriately names chawanni chaap janta 🙂 ) is an experience that can no longer be savoured. This experience has become extinct with time.

Incidentally, unlike Santosh Ojha, I myself had not watched this movie during its first run. My movie watching spree began in 1978, and I watched this movie during its second run, which is not the same as watching it during its maiden run, of course.

With this song, all the seven songs of “Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

We are into September. The month has begun with on an auspicious note with the arrival of the elephant-headed god, Lord Ganesh or Gajanan or Vighneshwar or Ekdanta or Vinayak or Ganpati- different names for the same god. For which Atulji had posted a “Ganpati Bappa Morya” song. The birthday list for September began with the ‘pouring out of a true fan’s feelings for his idol post’ on Sadhana by Sudhirji.

Here is my post to wish my favourite actor on turning a year older. He has been out of the country for the last year undergoing treatment for the dreaded C. Though out of the country he has been in public eye with constant reports of how he is recovering and that he is expected back in the country in the not-so-distant future. I am wishing Rishi Raj Kapoor on his 67th birthday. May he return to the pink of health and continue what he does best – give us lots of entertaining movies like his last few – “Mulk” (2018) directed by Anubhav Sinha which was poles apart from his “102 Not Out” directed by Umesh Shukla. He played varied characters in “Kapoor and Sons” (2016), “Besharam” (2013), “Patiala House” (2011), “Agneepath” (2012), “Do Dooni Char” (2010), “Student of the year” (2012), – post his decision in 1999 to stop trying to play the romantic lead we have seen Chintu (as his is fondly called) in different avatars. He must be the only actor from the 70s and 80s (other than Amitabh of course) to be considered for playing near-central characters which are not necessarily young.

Now for a few words on today’s song

It is from a 42-year-old movie. It has been on the air-waves and all the music channels of television ever since. And it falls right in the category of “how come this song was not posted earlier?”. But then we will find many of Chintu’s songs eligible for this category and our blog will always have fodder for posting :). The last time I heard this on radio was, may be last week, when I was driving to the airport in Mumbai (my brother was dropping me) or driving home from the airport with my son after touch down at Bangalore (that means twice on the same day). That is how frequently the song gets played. Then on entering the house I found my husband surfing channels and again this song. And next day morning doordarshan played it on their weekly musical “Rangoli”. So that made it 4 times in 24 hours and am I complaining about the number of repeats? No, not at all!! Why? Because I like the elements that the maker of the movie has put into the song. In fact, the maker is known for putting that kind of elements in the whole movie and almost all his movies.

Here I am talking of Shri Manmohan Desai and his habit of showing us incredible, illogical and unbelievable things in his movies, and how the audiences have lapped those up with eyes closed. Remember the blood donation scene in “Amar Akbar Anthony”? The song sequence in “Mard” has a tiger escorting the mother towards a boat so that she can cross to the other bank where her son is singing in the temple. Unforgettable.

Today’s song has the eternal mother – Nirupa Roy – escaping from the clutches of Jeevan and Ranjeet (they were a team in the 70s). She is shown running towards an open-air temple where we have Chintu singing a qawwali in praise of Sai Baba. The mother comes in crawling (tired after all the running and falls that she has had enroute) moves slowly towards the Baba’s idol unseen by the devotees present in the temple. Just as Chintu sings the line – “tu bichhadon ko milaaye, bujhe deepak jalaaye” we see two tiny specks of jyot (light of the diyas) emerge from the Baba’s eyes and enter the lady’s eyes – here I must mention that the lady is blind too, a result of an accident at the start of the movie. And now she can see three kids beckoning her – on the Baba’s smiling face. Such chamatkaars (magical happening) used to be Manmohan Desai’s forte. The song or qawwali comes to a close and she declares to whoever is ready to hear that “ab mein dekh sakti hoon” (I have my vision back); I pity all the eye doctors of that time, I am sure they would have prayed to Baba that they don’t go out of business. 🙂

So today on the occasion of Chintu a.k.a Rishi Kapoor’s birthday let us wish him health and happiness through this chamatkaari song that was written by Anand Bakshi, sung by Mohd. Rafi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Incidentally 3rd September was the 80th birthday of Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma – Pyarelal of the music director duo Laxmi-Pyare. Let us wish him too health and happiness.

“Jal Tarang”(1949) was directed by Rajendra Sharma for Kuldeep Pictures Limited, Bombay. This “social” movie had Geeta Baali, Rehman, Ram Singh, Rajan Haksar, Ramesh Thakur, Shashikala, Kesari, Pesi Patel, Shyama, Sevak, Uma Dutt, Tiger (dog) etc in it.

The ovie had nine songs in it that were penned by six lyricists. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Jal Tarang”(1949) to appear in the blog. The song is a sung by Rafi and Shamshad Begam for most part and then one unknown male voice sings a line in the last stanza. So, what was sounding like a duet becomes a non duet. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this unknown male voice. My guess is that it could be Husnlal or Bhagatram, one of the music director duo.

Pt Sudarshan is the lyricist. This was the only song penned by him in this movie. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

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

Today’s song is from film Raj Mukut-50.

From the title itself one would know what type of film this could be. In our childhood we were fond of, first listening and then reading stories of Raja-Rani. As we grow older, this liking seems to have ended,but it is not so, in reality. Every adult has a child in him and the love for the Raja Rani stories is hiding behind the facade of other serious life matters of the adult age.

Precisely, this liking was identified by B and C grade action and costume filmmakers and films on Kings, Queens, the evil Vazier or the Army Chief, plus or minus the evil Magician were made. From the point of business, it was wise to make such films, because its Producers never suffered loss, where as failure of an A grade film invariably ruined the producer.

The simple reason was, the production cost, distribution cost, actors’ payments etc were very low and the income was very good. May be that was the reason, that even the big banners also sometimes or the other had made costume films about Kings and Queens etc.

Going by the film title list made by Hamraz ji, I found at least 43 films starting with Raaj – like Raaj Mukut, Raaj Tarang, Raaj Ratan, Raaj Nandini etc etc. There were 32 films having titles starting with Raja, like Raja Gopichand, Raja Harishchandra, Raja Vikram etc etc. Movie titles with Rani prefix were just 11 (Gender Bias ?).

Coming to the story of Raaj Mukut-50, it is no different than hundreds of its ilk. I wonder why are there story shortages in films ? Why do films have similar stories ? In the 40’s decade ,Master Bhagwan used just one story to make 11 action films. In later times, it was Nasir Hussain, who – starting with Tumsa Nahin Dekha-57 – used only one skeleton story for most of his films and what’s more surprising is that his most film were Hits.

While thinking about it, I found that, in 2004, a book called “Why we tell stories”, written by Christopher Booker was published. It is a book having 728 pages to be exact. The book says “There are only 7 (Seven) basic plots in the whole world. They are recycled again and again in Novels, movies, Plays and Operas. These are
1.Overcoming the Monster
2.Rags to riches
3.The quest
4.Voyage and return
5.Rebirth
6.Comedy and
7.Tragedy “.

After this book was published, there was a chaos and criticism started. ‘New York Times’ also jumped in. The author coolly replied to all points and stuck to his statements. If we look at Hindi films, I personally feel that what the author has said is true in our case. Only thing is that our film stories are always a clever mixture of all or some of the above points.

If we take a look at the cast of the film Raaj Mukut-50, we find some heavyweights like Veena, Jairaj, Nimmi, Sapru, Gulab, Janakidas, Baby Tabassum etc. The decade of the 50s started with the decline of old stalwarts of 30s and 40s, because of the rise of new generation of actors, actresses, directors, MDs and almost all departments of film making. Nimmi was a ‘ Black Sheep’ in this cast because she was from the newer generation rising star.May be she did this film to get well entrenched in the film industry. Moreover the banner was good and the other actors were well known too. Director Nanubhai Vakil was an expert veteran in costume and action film direction. The music was given by Gobindram, a respected name in the musical circles.

Baby Tabassum had debuted with film Nargis-46 ( released in 47). Tabassum – real name Kiran Bala Sachdev was born in 1944 in Mumbai to Ayodhyanath Sachdev, an Indian freedom fighter, and Asghari Begum, freedom fighter, journalist and an author. Her father named her Tabassum, keeping her mother’s religious sentiments in mind, while her mother kept her name Kiran Bala, keeping her father’s religious sentiments in mind. Her official name as per pre-marriage documents was Kiran Bala Sachdev.

Tabassum made her film debut as a child actor with Nargis (1947) followed by Mera Suhaag (1947), Manjhdhar (1947) and Bari Behen (1949). Later in Deedar (1951), directed by Nitin Bose, she played the childhood role of Nargis; the hit song Bachpan Ke Din Bhula Na Dena sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Shamshad Begum was picturised on her. Also, in the next year, she appeared in another important film Baiju Bawra (1952) directed by Vijay Bhatt, where she appeared in the childhood role of Meena Kumari. After a gap, she reentered films in adult roles, working as a character actress.

She hosted the first talk show of Indian television, Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan, which ran for 21 years from 1972 to 1993. Produced by Doordarshan Kendra Mumbai, it was based on interviews of film celebrities and became immensely popular. This also led to a career as stage compere. She was also the editor of Grihalaxmi, a Hindi women’s magazine for 15 years and wrote many joke books.

In 1985, she directed, produced and wrote her first film, Tum Par Hum Qurban. In 2006, she returned to television, as an actress in Pyaar Ke Do Naam: Ek Raadha, Ek Shyaam, produced by Rajshri Productions. She became a judge in a reality stand-up comedy show Ladies Special (2009) on Zee TV.

She continued to work as an interviewer for television and is currently doing a TV show on TV Asia USA and Canada titled Abhi Toh Main Jawaan Hoon based on the Golden Era of Hindi Cinema. Currently, she has launched her own channel on YouTube, titled “Tabassum Talkies” which consists of nostalgic talks, interviews of celebrities, shayaris, jokes and more.

She is married to Vijay Govil, elder brother of TV actor Arun Govil. Their son Hoshang Govil had brief career as a lead in three films Tum Par Hum Qurbaan (1985), which was produced and directed by Tabassum in which she introduced Johnny Lever for the first time on screen as a comedian. Kartoot (1987) and Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Yeah (1996) produced by Zee TV and directed by J Om Prakash (grandfather of Hritik Roshan). In 2009, her granddaughter Khushi (daughter of Hoshang) made her film debut with Hum Phir Mile Na Mile. ( courtesy- Wikipedia).

Tabassum is an actress of a kind who was an All rounder-not in body shape-(that she is in now!), who is the only one having succeeded in 5 different mediums of entertainment. Films,TV,Radio,Print Media and Stage. Here is a small note about her,as it appears on her Facebook page-

“Tabassum ,during her years as child star ,was dubbed by her fans ,the movie -industry and the media as “THE SHIRLY TEMPLE OF INDIA”.

FILMS

She made her debut at the age of two and half years, in 1946, in her first film –Famous Pictures “Nargis’.This film was produced by Baburao Pai ,directed by D.D.Kashyap ….“Nargis” starred the legendary Nargisji herself with Rehman ,Shahnawaz ,Alka ,Achrekar and BABY TABASSUM.

In a short span of about six years Tabassum chalked up a record of child artist roles in more than thirty films ,and she’s working in films even today with a total of more than 100 films to her credit.

TELEVISION

Tabassum was the first to start the movie- oriented T.V. series on Doordarshan (India’s Government owned Television channel) which started on October 2nd, 1972. On October 8th 1972 , she launched her famous series of film-personality interviews. The first person to be interviewed in these series , titled “PHOOL KHILE HAIN GULSHAN GULSHAN” was a veteran music director Naushad.

This programme ran continuously on Doordarshan for 21 years ..

Various cultural organizations ,audiences ,and the media in general even the then INFORMATION AND BROADCASTING MINISTER Mr. V.P.Sathe have dubbed Tabassum as THE T.V. QUEEN OF INDIA .

RADIO

Tabassum started on radio in 1946 with children programmes and did many other programmes regularly on All India Radio.
For 15 years from 1970 to 1985 Tabassum ran a regular radio programme of jokes on the commercial services of Radio Ceylon.The same programme was later switched also to Vividh Bharti where continued for many years. She is still doing programmes regularly on Vividh Bharti.

She was conferred the award of “JOKES QUEEN OF INDIA”.

AUTHORSHIP AND JOURNALISM

Tabassum has been writing Urdu poetry , jokes ,short stories since her childhood which were being regularly published in Urdu and Hindi magazines ,newspapers ,etc.

During her more than sixty four years long career in show business ,Tabassum has also written seven books of Jokes ,Poetry ,and Urdu shayris ,the first of which was published at the age of 17 years when she had just passed her matriculation examination. She did her B.A. in Urdu from Aligarh University.

For the past many years Tabassum has fitted also journalism into her over crowded schedule when she took over as editor of the large circulation of a Woman’s magazine GRIHA LAKSHMI which is published monthly from New Delhi since last 17 years.

STAGE

As Baby Tabassum , Filmland’s original child-star the Shirley Temple of India ,began to appear on stage shows since the tender age of three to four years.Over three decades ago she launched her own stage show unit named “TABASSUM HIT PARADE’.This stage entertainment unit has over the past three decades performed variety entertainment shows all over India and in almost every country of the world from U.S.A.and Canada to the United Kingdom and Europe ,the Middle east and Gulf countries to South-east Asia ,Singapore and the far east in Hong Kong ,China ,Taiwan and Japan.

Now she is busy in promoting a stage programme titled “Tabassum Bhajan Sandhya” in India and abroad as spiritual entertainment.

On May 8th 1995 various well known cultural organizations of India celebrated TABASSUM’S HALF CENTURY IN FILM INDUSTRY AND SHOW BUSINESS AND WAS LARGELY ATTENDED BY FILM AND OWN MEDIA PERSONALITIES INCLUDING THE PRESS. ”

Film Raaj Mukut-50 story was about a Prince who is more interested in doing social service for the poor and down trodden ( and a love affair with the Village Mukhiya’s daughter) than getting crowned legitimately. So he disappears and goes to a village, to do what he always wanted to do, but could not do so far.

He learns that his younger brother, crowned after the deliberate false rumour of the prince- was perpetrating tyranny on kingdom’s people and also arrested his own parents and jailed them. His blood boils and he enters the capital incognito, along with his girlfriend and others. There is a fighting and the younger brother is killed. The King and Queen are released. The prince becomes the King and his girlfriend becomes his Queen. Clap, Clap !

The film had 11 songs. 4 songs are already discussed. Today’s song is the 5th song. It is sung by Shamshad Begum, Amirbai, Rafi and another unknown male voice. Incidentally, Gobind Ram had a special affinity for Shamshad Begum. He gave music to 32 films and composed 302 songs. Out of these, he composed as many as 86 songs in 19 films for Shamshad Begum. I believe, he may be the music director who has most songs for Shamshad Begum- atleast percentage wise (28.4 %).

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 42
——————————————————————————————

Though I have been discussing Hindi movie songs in the blog for more than a decade now, it is not as if I had watched too many movies during my “formative” years. I recall having watched a few movies in early 1970s, with the last of these movies being “Zindagi Zindagi” (1972) in 1972.

My movie watching spree began in 1978 (after six years) when I joined college and got “freedom” that I as a college goer was “supposed” to enjoy. 🙂 And I fully misused my freedom, by watching movies when I should have been attending my classes.

It was during this movie watching spree that I watched not just the current movies but also those movies which had come between 1972 and 1978 which I had missed during their time. This included all Amitabh Bachchan hit movies like “Zanjeer” (1973), “Deewaar”(1975), “Sholay” (1975) etc.

When my pre teen movie watching ended in 1972, I had watched very few movies. I could only identify Rajesh Khanna, Tanuja, Mumtaz etc thanks to Rajesh Khanna movies like “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh” (1972) that I got to watch at that time. Thanks to watching “Haqeeqat”(1964) is an open field show at night in my railway colony, I became familiar with Dharmendra. In another such free show, I watched “Dil Diya Dard Liya”(1966) and that is how I became familiar with Dilip Kumar.

That was about it. I had not watched any movies of Rajendra Kumar, Raj Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Sanjeev Kumar, Saira Bano etc till 1978 !

During my “catching up with lost time” movie watching spree, I watched “Resham Ki Dori”(1974) some time in 1978 or 1979. This movie, as I know now thanks to HFGK, was directed by Atmaram for Modern Pictures Bombay. The movie had Saira Bano, Dharmendra, Kumud Chhugaani, Rajendranath, Sujit Kumar, Sajja, Ramesh Deo, Rajan Haksar, Jayshree T, Kundan, Meena T, Bhagwan, Shabnam, Sapru, Shivraj, Jankidas, Keshav Rana, Sundar, Master Sachin, Ramlal, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Radheshyam, Chaand Usmani (Special appearance), Kanwar Ajit, Suresh, Murad etc in it.

Except Dharmendra, almost every other actor in the movie was “new” and unfamiliar for me. Many of them continued to remain unfamiliar to me for decades. For instance, I was not aware which actress played the sister of Dharmendra in this movie. Somehow I had erroneously assumed that she was called Urmila Bhatt (I find , to my surprise that she is not even there in the cast). Only now, when I checked up the starcast, I realised that the sister had to be Kumud Chhugaani.

The movie had six songs in it. The most popular song of the song was the raakhi song and it was posted exactly ten years ago. So that means that this day ten year ago was the festival of Rakshabandhan. And as was the practice in the blog, Rakhi related songs were discussed on the blog on that day (5 august 2009).

Today, as part of blog ten year challenge (2009-2019), here is a song from “Resham Ki Dori”(1974). This song is a lovers’s song. It is sung by Rafi, with a few sweet nothings uttered by Saira Bano (I guess). Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised on Dharmendra and Saira Bano. It was for the first time in this movie that I had seen Saira Bano in a movie. I had not seen her in “Padosan”(1968) because my elders did not take me to watch this (or other well known movies) of those days.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by avinash Scrapwala.

Saira Bano

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Sone ke gahne
Kyun tune pahne
Kaaya teri khud kanchan hai ae
Gesu banaaye to
Phool kyun sajaaye
Tera badan khud gulshan hai ae
Achchhaa
Sone ke gahne
Kyun tune pahne ae
A haa haa
dhat

Heere ki angoothhi bhi
Lagti hai jhoothhi
Itni chamak teri aankhon mein ae
Ja ja
Jhoothhe

Moti ki maala
Kyun pahni baalaa
Moti chhupe hai tere daanton mein
Haay Raam
Moti chhupe hai tere daaton mein
Ghadi ghadi darpan ke ae
Oye hoye hoye hoye
Ghadi ghadi darpan ke ae
Aage khadi kyun
Tera badan khud darpan hai
Hato ji
Sone ke gahne
Kyun tune pahne
Kaaya teri khud kanchan hai ae ae
Sone ke gahne
Kyun tune pahne
Hmm mm
how romantic

Sooraj sa chamke
Jab tera mukhda
Maathe pe bindiya sajaayi kyun
Haan
Ha h h h sach
Laali bina honthh laal hai tere
Hothhon pe laali lagaayi kyun
Hmm mm
Hothhon pe laali lagaayi kyun
Singaar ki ee
Haaye ae main mar jaawaan
Singaar ki tujhe kya hai zaroorat
Tera singaar tera yauvan hai
uff
Sone ke gahne
Kyun tune pahne
Kaaya teri khud kanchan hai ae ae
Laa laa laa laa
Gesu banaaye to
Laa laa laal laa
Phool kyun sajaaye
Laa laa laal laa
Tera badan khud gulshan hai ae
Hmm hmm hmm hmm
Sone ke gahne kyun tune pahne

सोने के गहने
क्यूँ तूने पहने
काया तेरी खुद कंचन है ए ए
गेसू बनाए तो
फूल क्यूँ सजाये
तेरा बदन खुद गुलशन है ए
अच्छा
सोने के गहने
क्यूँ तूने पहने ए
अ हा हा

हीरे की अंगूठी भी
लगती है झूठी
इतनी चमक तेरी आँखों में ए
जा जा
झूठे

मोती की माला
क्यूँ पहनी बाला
मोती छुपे है तेरे दाँतों में
हाय राम
मोती छुपे है तेरे दाँतों में
घडी घडी दर्पण के ए
ओये होए होए होए
घडी घडी दर्पण के ए
आगे कड़ी क्यूँ
तेरा बदन खुद दर्पण है
हटो जी
सोने के गहने
क्यूँ तूने पहने
काया तेरी खुद कंचन है ए ए
सोने के गहने
क्यूँ तूने पहने
हम्म म्म
हाउ रोमांटिक

सूरज सा चमके
जब तेरा मुखड़ा
माथे पे बिंदिया सजाई क्यूँ
हाँ
अ ह ह ह सच
लाली बिना होंठ लाल है तेरे
होंठों पे लाली लगाई क्यूँ
हम्म म्म
होंठों पे लाली लगाई क्यूँ
सिंगार की ई
हाए मैं मर जावां
सिंगार की तुझे क्या है ज़रुरत
तेरा सिंगार तेरा यौवन है
ऊफ
सोने के गहने
क्यूँ तूने पहने
काया तेरी खुद कंचन है ए ए
ला ला ला ला
गेसू बनाए तो
ला ला ला ला
फूल क्यूँ सजाये
ला ला ला ला
तेरा बदन खुद गुलशन है ए
हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म
सोने के गहने क्यूँ तूने पहने

Blog Day : 4030 Post No. : 15148

31st July – a day when Hindi Film Music lovers, world over, remember the legendary, Mohd. Rafi who left us this day in 1980. Its 39 years- hard to believe. Seems too recent, when the newspapers carried the news. Those were times when there was no flash news, breaking news or someone getting the news and forwarding on WhatsApp etc. At the most there used to be the evening edition of newspapers like Mid-day, Afternoon Despatch & Courier, and if I remember right there was a newspaper called Evening News and I don’t remember if the news broke out in the evening papers or the early morning papers. What I do remember is that it was monsoon and as is usual for the time of the year, there were rains in Mumbai and the roads of Bandra, where Rafi Saab lived and through which his funeral procession was going to pass, were flooded with his fans. The footage of the procession was recorded by Films Division of India and shown in the pre-movie news reels throughout India. Those were different times altogether and my intention is not to make anyone glum.

So, snapping out of the mood and getting on. Without fear of being labelled a ‘stuck record’ I will make it very clear (and I am sure I have done it a number of times) I am not partial to any singer be it Kishore Kumar or Rafi Saab or Mukesh or Manna Dey or Mahendra Kapoor. Specially in the era when they were ruling the airwaves with their “hai preet jahaan ki reet sada”; “zindagi kaisi hai paheli haayre”; “main pal do pal ka shaayar hoon”; “kya hua tera vaada”; or “bachchna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya” and all the other thousands of songs that these singers have sung between them. I used to be as much in love with “abhi toh haat mein jaam hai toba kitna kaam hai” as with “nadiya se dariya, dariya se sagar, sagar se gehra jaam”. I used to sing along with “chal mere bhai tere haat jod ta hoon” and “karam kiye jaa phal ki ichcha mat kar ae insaan”. And my love for the songs by these singers was not limited to the songs of the 70s but I enjoyed “deewana mastana hua dil” alongwith ‘hum hain raahi pyar ke humse kuch na boliye” and “kisiki muskurahaton pe ho nisaar” etc. etc. etc… I am sure I have proved the point that I was not a partial to any singer and was more concerned about the songs. One reason for this could be that I didn’t know the difference of one from the other till much later in life. I might have started finding differences when we got news of the sad demise of Mukesh when he was on tour in the USA and the papers listed out his popular songs.

Whenever I sit to write about the singers mentioned above, I find that all their most popular songs are already posted. So is the case with songs of Mohd. Rafi. The stats page of our blog gives the possible number of Rafi songs as 4845 of which we have posted 2960 giving us 1885 songs to choose from. And I suppose these are numbers of his Bollywood songs and doesn’t include his recordings in other Indian or international languages song like Sinhalese, Arabic, Farsi, Dutch, Creole etc. I tried to find statistics of his number of songs with his contemporary singers and found that he had maximum duets with Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar (in that order) – and I always used to think that the Lata- Rafi combo would have had more songs. How wrong we can be!!!!

This time too I had zeroed in on two popular (in their time) songs to go with this post. And then I saw a link on facebook in one of the music lovers’ group, to a song by Sudhir Phadke that was sung by Mohd. Rafi and from a rather recent movie- if 1972 can be called recent. The name “Daraar” written as “darar” in some places didn’t ring a bell in my head. I tried the usual reference sources at my disposal- Wikipedia and imdb. I got very sketchy information. The movie was a January 1972 release. It was directed by Ved Rahi and Mahendra Dehlvi and Kulwant Jani were the lyricist. The starcast had the not so famous Baldev Khosa, Lata Arora, Radharani, Birbal etc. Such a non-descript movie had a lively song. It was sung by Jaywant Kulkarni and Mohd. Rafi. How I wish there was a video to see who was lip syncing this.

here is the song.


Song-Ab ham bhi banenge dulha (Daraar)(1972) Singers-Rafi, Jaywant Kulkarni, Lyrics-Kulwant Jaani, MD-Sudhir Phadke
Chorus

Lyrics

o ho
o ho

hadipa
hadipa

ab hum bhi banenge dulha
apna bhi jalega choolha
ab hum bhi banenge dulha
apna bhi jalega choolha
te bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha aa aa
haaye haaye
te bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha
ni bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha

hoye hoye hoye hoye

aaj kismat ki maina
aaho
mere kaanon mein boli
oho
mere ghar bhi aayegi
oho
ek bulbul ki doli
jiski soorat ko ab tak haan
dil ke sheeshe mein dekha hai
jiske sundar mukhde ko haan
maine sapnon mein chooma hai
gulaabon ki wo daali
saru se kad waali
wahi toh mere ghar mein aayegi ee ee
haaye haaye haaye
bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha
ni bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha

hoye

usey doli se uthha ke
saji sej pe bithha ke
thoda ghunghta hata ke
ho gora ang ang dekhoonga haay haay
mujhe saath leke jaana
tera yaar hoon puraana
tera hansna hansaana
ho main bhi sang sang dekhoonga hoye hooye

dekhkar uska jalwa haan
mar na jaaye tu gash khaa ke
toot jaate hain taare haan
uski nazron se takraa ke
wo jiski jawaani chenab ki rawaani
wahi to mere ghar mein aayegi ee ee ee
hoye hoye
te bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha
