Blog Day : 3500 Post No. : 14064

3500 – a good number to be. It is divisible by 7. Gives us 500.

Lets take a stock of the major numbers.

We complete 3500 days – unbroken sequence (almost 😉 ).
500 weeks.
14,000+ songs.

And, for the ticker watchers, we are just going to touch 10,100,000 visits to this blog.

In terms of artist stats, some very interesting total numbers,

486 – Music Directors + 109 posts with [*Unattributed] MD status
659 – Lyricists + 402 posts with [*Unattributed] Lyricist status
870 – Singers + 93 posts with unidentified singer names

Keeping out the unattributed and the unidentified, we are managing a whopping total of 2015 unique artists

I have written this phrase before. Our blog is history in the making – history of Hindi film music – one song at a time.

In terms if format, in terms of depth of content, in terms of dealing earnestly and critically with the subject matter, this blog is unique and without any peers. We are close to completing 10 years. Even now, we periodically get to see reader’s comments that tell about recently having discovered this hallowed destination on the internet, and what a fantastic treasure they have encountered. In fact, we have one such comment that came in today, just about four and a half hours ago. Paraphrasing from the text of this comment, a new reader Jayant Raleraskar writes that “. . . that’s a Great contribution indeed. In fact I am a new visitor to Atulsong. Of course I am enjoying and getting nice information as well.” Today, 3500 days after its inception, we still continue to get new readers who are impressed enough to leave such a heartening and an encouraging comment.

And the march continues. Ah yes, it is the next coming month also; but I refer to the dogged insistent forward journey that has been in progress for 3500 days today. The pun is on the word March. By the way, are you familiar with the best pun on ‘March’. It is a tiny two liner

“Can February March?
No, but April May.”

😀  😀  😀

Great journey so far. A grand motley crew of loving friends assembled on the bandwagon. And on towards the horizon – many a thousand more stations still to be covered on this beat. Maybe someone may ask us some day – why we do it? Brings to mind a similar incident from the mountaineering past. George Mallory, the famed young British climber who was part of the first three (unsuccessful) expeditions to conquer Mt Everest, in the 1920s. Mallory is famously quoted as having replied to the question “Why did you want to climb Mount Everest?” with the retort “Because it’s there”, which has been called “the most famous three words ever in mountaineering”.

Well, I think our answer may not be limited to these three words. The answer by us would be – “Because it is there, and we love it”.  🙂 🙂

And on this journey, we continue to discover, almost on a daily basis, something new and surprising about the Hindi film music.

Take today’s song for example. Yesterday when Atul ji and I exchanged emails about today being the 3500th daily anniversary of this endeavor, I thought about it, and then started searching for a song with the word ‘hazaar’ in it. After checking out a few examples, I settled on this song for this post today.

ek shama hai mehfil mein
parwaane hazaaron hain

or if I may take some poetic latitude here, I would like to surmise as

ek asad hai internet mein
padhne waale hazaaron hain

And the other reason I picked this song – aah well, I am sure some of you may have already guessed. Going thru the lyrics of this Geeta Dutt beauty from 1952, folks will find a suspicious shadow falling on to another iconic song from three decades later. Yes, I refer to the famous song from ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981) –

in aankhon ki masti ke
mastaane hazaaron hain

In fact, not just mastaane, but also deewaane and maikhaane. Just take away the music and map the lyrics. I think we may have hit upon the original song that ‘inspired’ the famous hit song of ‘Umrao Jaan’.

The 1952 film ‘Baghdad’ is produced by JB Lulla, under the banner of Falcon Films, Bombay and is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The star cast is listed as Ranjan, Bharti, Yashodhara Katju, Anwar, Veera, Kamal, Samson, S Nazeer, Kanta, Nagpal, Anant Prabhu, Bhupen Kapoor, Habib, Sabu (Tattoo), and Bhagwan. The eight songs of this film are penned by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, and the music is by Bulo C Rani.

Congratulations once again to all – milestones galore. Happy 3500th to all.

Song – Ek Shama Hai Mehfil Mein Parwaane Hazaaron Hain  (Baghdad) (1952) Singer – Geeta Roy, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

“Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) was directed by Raj Khosla for Deep and Pradeep Productions, Bombay, the home production of Pradeep Kumar. The movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Shashikala, Rehman, B Nandi, Jagdeep, Nazeer Hussain, Tuntun etc in it.

This “social” movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised as a ghoda gaadi song, and the lip syncer is addressing the ghoda in this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Chal beta left chal beta right(Do Dilon Ki Daastaan)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-O P Nayyar

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on the lead pair of the movie viz Vyjyanti Mala and Pradeep Kumar. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

After a gap of some six years, here is the next song from “Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song sounds like an archtypical club dance song. Going by the cast, this song appears tailormade for Shashikala, but I cannot be sure. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

The first day of the year is drawing to a close and let us enjoy the first evening to the year with this nice club dance song.


Song-Ye machalta samaa (Do Dilon Ki Daastaan)(1966) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-O P Nayyar

“Madhur Milan”(1955) was directed by K G Punwani for Film Show Productions, Bombay. The movie had Nigar Sultana, Mahipal, Roopmala, Kesri, Bhudo advani, Madan Puri etc in it.

This “social” movie had twelve songs in it that were penned by seven lyricists !

Four songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “Madhur Milan”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

This is the kind of song that is best heard during summer evenings on a radio playing old songs. In other words, this is the kind of songs that used to get played on Radio Ceylon till 1970s during their evenings programmes at around 7 PM or so. But I must add that I used to find such songs “boring” during those days of 1970s, as these songs were old songs.

These songs were two decades old at that time, and now the same song is six decades old, and guess what ! Now I have begun to like this kind of songs. 🙂 So one does become wise with age, after all. 🙂


Song-Dil pyaar ki mehfil hai dildaar chale aao(Madhur Milan)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

dil pyaar ki mehfil hai ae
dildaar chale aao o
dil pyaar ki mehfil hai ae
dildaar chale aao o
ban kar mere sapnon ka sansaar
chale aao
chale aao o
dil pyaar ki mehfil hai ae ae ae

ae jaane bahaar aao
kisne tumhen roka hai ae
ae jaane bahaar aao
kisne tumhen roka hai
kisne tumhen roka hai
sau baar agar chaaho o o o
sau baar agar chaaho o
sau baar chale aao o
dil pyaar ki mehfil hai ae ae ae

roothhi huyi nazron ko nazren ye mana lengin
roothhi huyi nazron ko nazren ye mana lengin
nazron ka takaaza hai ae ae ae
nazron ka takaaza hai ae
ik baar chale aao o
dil pyaar ki mehfil hai ae ae ae

kya dil pe gujarti hai ae
kaise tumhen batlaaun
kya dil pe gujarti hai ae
kaise tumhen batlaaun
veeran hai mohabbat ka gulzaar
chale aao
chale aao o
ban kar mere sapnon ka sansaar
chale aao
chale aao o
dil pyaar ki mehfil hai ae ae ae

Today (19 october 2017) is deepaawali, the biggest festival in India.

It may sound unbelievable, but it is the tenth Deepawali for the blog today (19 october 2017) ! The fact that we have lasted this long, and instead of losing steam, we seem to be adding new features to the blog means that we have come quite a long way from the first deepaawali of this blog in 2008.

We have covered 33 deepaawali songs in the blog in the past, and that includes all the well known deepaawali festival songs.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

neend kabhi rehti thi aankhon mein
ab rehte hain saanwariya

Aah, so now we know, the sleep can no longer come to the eyes, for the eyes are already occupied with the images of the beloved. You cannot accommodate two swords in a single scabbard. Or for that matter, two lions in the same cave. So it has to be that sleep will have to wait outside, while the joys of visions of the beloved crowd all the room inside the eyes.
