Blog Day :

4306 Post No. : 15578

Another wonderful discovery, another song that I had never heard before. The film is ‘Zindagi’ from 1956. The music composition is by Mohammed Shafi.

Mohammed Shafi is the name I was trying to get to also, on 30th April, which is the remembrance day for him. After getting the post in place for C Arjun that evening, I was not able to pull together this post, for remembering Mohammed Shafi Sb.

Once again, another very talented music director about whom, not much information is available. After much searching, I am able to locate a very brief article by a gentleman named Qaseem Abbaasi on the web site ‘Apnaarchives.org’. I am including some details from that article in this post.

He was born sometimes in 1920s. His father’s name was Majid Khan, who passed away when Shafi was very young. Majid Khan was the grandson of the renowned beenkar Bande Ali Khan. Bande Ali was also a master of swar-pradhan gayaki and was the brother of Abdul Karim Khan Sb’s father. As I searched for more details about Bande Ali Khan, I reached the website Swarganga Music Foundation, and a somewhat detailed article on Bande Ali Khan. Browsing through this article, I discover that one of the more famous disciples of Bande Ali Khan is Imdaad Khan of Etawah, who is none other than the grandfather of Ustad Vilayat Khan (28 Aug, 1928 – 13 Mar, 2004), the renowned Sitar maestro of India.

A little clue about his early years can be surmised from a family connection that is mentioned. Mohammed Shafi’s wife, Zeenat, was the sister of Ustad Vilayat Khan. Vilayat Khan Sb’s family came originally from Etawah (close to Agra in UP). Apparently, Vilayat Khan Sb’s grandfather, Imdaad Khan, moved from Etawah to Gouripur in Mymenshingh district in undivided Bengal (now in Bangladesh). Vilayat Khan Sb was born in Gouripur. Sitar and classical music was a family tradition with them, and the family and their music tradition is known as Etawah gharana.

It can be surmised that Mohammed Shafi Sb was also based in Bengal in his early years. One, being married to the sister of Ustad Vilayat Khan, a family based in Mymensingh at that time. Second, Mohammed Shafi started his career at New Theatres, Calcutta (now Kolkata), working as a musician and assisting RC Boral, Pankaj Mullick and KC Dey. It is suggested that he contributed as a musician to films like ‘Kapaal Kundala’ (1939) and ‘Aandhi’ (1940).

In early 1940s, along with the migration of many artists from Calcutta to Bombay (now Mumbai), Mohammed Shafi also moved to Bombay. Although not listed in Geet Kosh, Qaseem Abbaasi Sb has written that he assisted music director Bashir Dehlavi in the 1942 film ‘Ujaala’. In this film, Prithviraj Kapoor played the role of a sitar player, and apparently, some special pieces were composed by Mohammed Shafi for this film.

Later on, he had a long association with Naushad as an assistant music director. For the film ‘Mughal e Azam’, the sitar pieces were prepared/played by both Abdul Haleem Jafar Khan Sb and Mohammed Shafi. It’s said that K Asif used to send a car to pick both of them for playing Sitar for the background music.

He got his first break as independent music director 1946 with the film ‘Haqdaar’. He continued to work till mid 1970s, but has only about 22 24 films to his credit. The number maybe 23, if we consider ‘Badi Maa’ (1974) as a re-release of ‘Tanhaai’ (1961). In parallel, he continued to assist many directors as a musician and music arranger.  Following is the list of films for which has composed music,

  • 1946  Haqdaar
  • 1946  Kaango
  • 1947  Do Naina
  • 1947  Rishta (unreleased)
  • 1947  Shikaarpuri
  • 1949  Anokhi Sewa – along with Dhoomi Khan
  • 1949  Bedard – along with BN Bali and Ram Prasad
  • 1949  Gharaana
  • 1951  Hulchul – along with Sajjad Hussain
  • 1952  Annadaata
  • 1952  Krishna Kanhaiya – along with BS Kalla
  • 1953  Aabshaar – along with Ghulam Haider & Bhola Shreshtha
  • 1953  Daara
  • 1954  Baazooband
  • 1954  Mangu – 2 songs, rest by OP Nayyar
  • 1956  Zindagi
  • 1960  Mohabbat Ki Jeet
  • 1960  Shriman Balasaheb (Marathi)
  • 1961  Tanhaai – later released as Badi Maa in 1974
  • 1965  Kite Fight (Wo Kata)
  • 1967  Shrimant Mehuna Pahije (Marathi)
  • 1971  Iraada – along with Vitthal-Mumtaz
  • 1974  Bari Maa – same as Tanhai (1961)
  • 1975  Dayaar-e-Madina

To his credit – Suman Hemadi Kalyanpur sang her debut song in the film ‘Mangu’ (1954), a wonderfully soft lorie “Koi Pukaare Dheere Se Tujhe” under his music direction. And again, singer Hemlata made her debut under his music direction in the film ‘Iraada’ (1971) – the songs “Main Ankahi Kahaani, Sadiyon Ki Hoon Nishaani” and “Main Jaan Ke Badle Mein Le Loongi Dhadakta Dil”.

A connected piece of information is that he also gave music under different names – Shafi M Nagri / Shafi Nagri / Shafi. All the films that he composed under these pseudonyms are stunt / fantasy type films. The list is,

  • 1953  Shamsheerbaaz
  • 1954  Sher Dil
  • 1955  Carnival Queen
  • 1956  Baghdad Ka Jaadu
  • 1957  Diler Daaku
  • 1959  Chini Jaadugar
  • 1959  Circus Queen
  • 1966  Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chirag – along with Shaukat

[Author’s Note: The name Shaukat for the above listed film ‘Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chirag’ (1966) is most probably Shaukat Dehlavi.]
[Author’s Note: I thank dear Arun ji. His comment on two missing films by Mohammad Shafi prompted me to re check and update the list of films above.]

Adding the above listed eight films, the total films by Mohammad Shafi comes to 32.

In the latter half of 1970s, Mohammed Shafi’s health deteriorated, and his last years were very difficult. He suffered a stroke, which resulted in partial amnesia. It is said that he did not receive any help or friendly hand, from the industry, except from Rafi Sb who would visit him occasionally and quietly leave money under his pillow without telling him.

He passed away after long years of illness on 30th April, 1980.

‘Zindagi’ (1956) is produced under the banner of Kesar Films, Bombay and is directed by CL Dheer. The star cast is listed as Geeta Bali, Vijaylakshmi, Jaswant, Baby Naaz, Gulab, Rasheed, Sudarshan, Krishnakant, Tuntun, and Jagdish Sethi.

There are 8 songs listed for this film. Seven songs are written by Kaifi Azmi, and one song is by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Today’s song is that solitary song from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan.

The singing voices are of Sudha Malhotra, S Balbir and Jagmohan Bakshi. The song is beautifully structured around a very clever use of chorus lines, with clear demarcation of male and female chorus lines. The pace and the rhythm of the song is quite energetic. It seems to be a picnic song, from the manner of singing and the words being said. I request other knowledgeable readers to please add information about this song and the film.

Listen and enjoy.

[Editor’s Note – This song is the 300th song of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan in the blog as a lyricist.]

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 11
—————————————————–

This post is likely the one which has been the most scrambled for. Leap day it is. So much history and folklore around this date, no doubt. But notwithstanding that, it struck us quite late in the day, as to how such a rare occasion be not celebrated, and not represented on our blog. We are all adept at combining celebrations and conjuring up milestones and reasons to post a celebratory article. So how come this leap day phenomena be left by the side. So we got going to get something in place, but it was quite late that we got started. Here is a brief about the gensis.

Time is 6:48 in the evening. An innocent query laden email from dear Arun ji lands in the mail box. He is enquiring about 29th Feb, 2016. The date seems to be blanked out on the blog, so were not posts added that day or is that an error of logging on the blog.

7:30 pm comes the response from Atul ji – yes, in 2016, the leap day actually was dot day.

Within one minute at 7.31 pm lands another follow up from Atul ji – and I quote –

“Today I wanted to post a blog leap day challenge, but my internet at home as well as office let me down. Atul”

There is radio silence for another about one hour or so. Around 8:20, I am back on my laptop, checking emails, and run into this exchange that has recently happened. It is 8:25 pm by the time I jump into the flow, and write to Atul ji, enquiring what did he have in mind.

Another 25 minutes creep by. It is 8:52 when Atul ji reply lands in the mail box. He wanted to follow up with a ‘challenge’ type post using one of the un-yippeee’d films from the list of posts from 29th Feb, 2012. Despite all the lethargy and laziness, I am stirred up to take on this challenge. Quickly I make a check of the films used on 29th Feb 2012. The list reads like,

Ban Ban Ke Bigadti Hai Taqdeer Gareebon Ki Guzaara 1954
Dil Ko Hai Tumse Pyaar Kyun NFS – Jagmohan `Sursagar` 1945
Tum Saamne Aakar Jis Dam Khazaanchi 1958
Dhal Chuki Shaam E Gham Kohinoor 1960
Bhare Hain Aankh Mein Aansoo Saara Jahaan Hamaara 1961
Manzil Ki Chaah Mein Devdas 1955

Only two films stand out as the candidates for this challenge – ‘Guzaara’ from 1954 and ‘Saara Jahaan Hamaara’ from 1961. Given the familiarity of the film and songs, I am tempted to attempt ‘Saara Jahaan Hamaara’. But then another peculiarity tries to pull my attention. The film ‘Guzaara’ from 1954 made its debut on the blog on this day – the leap – of 2012. And then – nothing else. For the past 8 years, the film has been sitting neglected, on one of the most interesting calendar days in, well, in the calendar. 🙂

And so, I decided to pick ‘Guzaara’. I sent out an email to Atul ji at 9:11 (that sounds almost sinister. . .) with the message – “‘Guzaara’ from 1954 would be an interesting candidate. Only one song, posted on leap day 2012, now second song on leap day 2020. 😀 :D”.

This time, the response is very immediate. Within a minute Atul ji confirms that he was also thinking to pick this film.

Poor ‘Guzaara’ – has been sitting on the bench for – goodness, 8 years. आते जाते हुये, the other films would ask cursorily – “How’s it going? Idling for long??”

And listlessly (pun intended) ‘Guzaara’ would reply – “गुज़ारा चल रहा है”. :D)  :D)

And then suddenly another thought passed into the mind’s channels. Debut on the leap day in 2012, no action till the leap day on 2020, when the second song gets posted. And I hope this does not lead to a typecasting (so common in the industry, no?). because if it does, then poor ‘Guzaara’ would take more than two decades to get yippeee’d for its 8 songs. (LOL)

‘Guzaara’ is a social film from the production house of Aaina Pictures, Bombay produced and directed by SM Yusuf. The star cast is listed as Karan Diwan, Paro, Jabeen, Mirza Musharraf, Chand Burque, Baby Naaz, Romi, SM Yusuf, Manju, Tiwari, Baalam, Faizi, Sangeeta, Chhagan Romeo, Mehru. Hmmm. . . Karan Dewan and Paro, this would have been an important film of its time. The eight songs of this film are written by Fauq Zami – two songs, Muneer Lakhnavi – one song, and Raja Mehdi Ali Khan five songs. The music direction is by Ghulam Mohammed. The film comes from the same year as ‘Mirza Ghalib’, one of the most well known films with music by him.

Today’s song is a “sales pitch” song, rendered by Rafi Sb. The item for sale is ‘bhajia’, and the song goes along with homilies and interesting advises, as it tries to make better of selling ‘pakodas’. 😉 Looking at the star cast, the most likely candidate for performing this song is Karan Dewan himself. I cannot bring myself to imagine that Mirza Musharraf or Baalam would take on performing this song on screen. I would request our more knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about this song, and the film.

Ah so, the leap challenge, at last. And the film gets its second song on the blog, on the same leap day, eight years apart. Come to think of it – do we know what is the origin of the term ‘leap’ as it applies to this date and this calendar terminology. Hmmm. . . as we look at the calendars progression from one year to the next, and given 365 days in the year and 7 days in the week, the thumb rule is that the new year starts on the weekday, next to the day on which the previous year starts. Except for this peculiar creature called ‘leap year’ when the sequence of week day ‘leaps’ ahead by one day. Oh yes, this is the simple explanation available from dictionary.com.

I am sure all are familiar with the rules of the Julian calendar, set is place by Julius Ceaser, which instituted this leap day’s concept, and the later correction by Pope Gregory, resulting in the Gregorian calendar that makes an exception for missing a leap year every 100th year, but then also not missing it every 400th year, to account for the correct number of days passing per year, given that the earth uses up 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds, give or take a few milliseconds here and there, to completely go once around the sun. That is being astronomically correct. Otherwise, what would we know better, just being used for waking up with sunrise every day. Leap day, leap year – what does it matter. At the end of the day, and quoting from another song by Rafi Sb – “Jitni Likhi Thhi Muqaddar Mein. . .” – the number of breaths destined are what it is. History records that in 1582, when Pope Gregory announced this correction to the calendar, the official dates were adjusted by 10 days, There were riots in the city of Vatican and the common man protested, wanting 10 days of their lives to be returned.

Ah well, as the world turns. And not very precisely so. 🙂

So listen to Rafi Sb, and enjoy the ‘bhajias’.

Song – Duniya Ki Haalat Naram Naram (Guzaara) (1954) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Ghulam Mohammed
Chorus

Lyrics

दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम
ओ दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम
हलवा छोड़ो

भाजिया खा लो गरम गरम
दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम

तूने भी मुफ्त की खाई है
क्या तू भी मेरा भाई है
ओ क्या तू भी मेरा भाई है
मेरी ही तरह होंगे मिस्टर
तेरे जनम के पिछले करम करम
हो मुन्ना तेरे जनम के पिछले करम करम
ओ दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम
हलवा छोड़ो

भाजिया खा लो गरम गरम
दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम

हुम तुमको कहाँ से दें भिक्षा
ओ भईय्या जा कर के खेंचो रिक्शा
हो मुन्ना जा कर के खेंचो रिक्शा
मत देश पे अपने बोझ बनो
है ये ही हमारा धरम धरम
है ये ही हमारा धरम धरम
होये दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम
हलवा छोड़ो
पूरी छोड़ो
भाजिया खा लो गरम गरम
दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम

चार आने में इंसान बिके
दो आने में इमार बिके
चार आने में इंसान बिके
दो आने में इमार बिके
एक आने में भगवान बिके
ए दुनिया वालो शेम शेम शेम
ए दुनिया वालो शरम शरम

ओ दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम
ओ दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम
हलवा छोड़ो
पूरी छोड़ो
भाजिया खा लो गरम गरम
दुनिया की हालत नरम नरम

Blog Day : 4240 Post No. : 15454

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 8
——————————————————————————
I am fond of saying that this blog was quite prolific in the past and presently we are crawling as a slow rate in comparison. But that was not the case throughout. There was a phase in the blog in the past when the posts in this blog has almost dried up. That was from december 2009 till february 2010. There were as many as 34 DOT days in the blog out of 90 days during these three months. Only 112 posts were published in the blog during these three months. Thus the blog those days was not even a song a day blog. It had even become no song in a day blog on 33 % days.

The reason was that I had found myself transferred from my earlier place of posting viz Jabalpur in the month of December 2009. It was an inter zonal transfer in Railways parlance. I was transferred from WCR zone to SECR Zone, whose HQ was at BIlaspur, Chhattisgarh. I reported at Bilaspur in the first week of december 2009. I stayed there for a few days before it was decided that I would be posted at Nagpur.

It took me a while before I got a quarter allotted to me at Nagpur in February 2010. I then went to Jabalpur, vacated my quarter there and brought the luggage to Nagpur. It was first week of March 2010 before I could get settled in Nagpur.

During these three months from December 2009 to February 2010, it was difficult to find time for blogging. Still, I thried to keep the blog going. The laptop that I had was my constant companion and I had a dongle for internet connectivity, but posting on a regular basis when I was literally living out of suitcase was a tough challenge.

All these dot days means that there are not too many occasions today (ten year later) when we can find songs for ten year challenge. There are days that were DOT days, so there is no question of being able to discuss a ten year challenge song those days. On the few days when some songs were discussed, many of these songs have already been YIPPEED by now.

Take the example of blog activity on this day ten years back (viz on 26 february 2010). Three songs were posted on the blog on that day :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Kitne raanjhe tujhe dekhkar bairaagi ban gaye Ahsaas-1979 04 of 06 songs posted
Aur kuchh der thahar aur kuchh der na jaa Aakhri Khat-1966 All Songs posted
Hame haal e dil tumse kahna hai Chaubees Ghante-1958 05 of 08 songs posted

“Chaubees Ghante”(1958) had made its debut on that day ten years ago. The writeup of this article was quite brief and sketchy, and contained little details about the movie. It shows that I did not have time to do research on this song. Moreover, ten years ago I was far less knowledgeable about HFM than today. I did not even have access to HFGK those days.

Now I know that this movie was directed by Dwarka Khosla for Zar Productions, Bombay. The movie had Premnath, Shakila, Maruti, Shammi, Nishi, Samson, Rajan Kapoor, K N Singh etc in it.

Ten years later, this movie had debuted in the blog when I was trying to find my feet at Nagpur, Maharashtra. Today (26 February 2010), exactly ten years later, I find myself at Gorakhpur, UP (via Bilaspur, Chattisgarh and Izatnagar, Bareilly, UP). By now five songs from the movie have been covered. Three songs were covered when I was at Nagpur. One song each was covered at Bilaspur and Izatnagar respectively.

Here is the sixth song from “Chaubees Ghante”(1958) appearing in the blog when I am based at Gorakhpur, UP. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. 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 this song.

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

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Round up of 2019

An eventful year comes to a close. I have had great experiences that will bring a smile on my face when I think of them or look at the related pictures.

First- my daughter gave me a promotion and I enjoyed every minute of the event. Only feeling at the end of it was— having waited for it from last July, when she announced her intention, I felt January came too soon and the week, with happenings related to the event, was over with the blessings of the elders of the family and good wishes of friends and relatives. And I must thank the Atulites too who came for it.

The next two months of the year were rather quiet. The major point of March being the R.M.I.M meet. I was lucky to have been able to attend the R.M.I.M in Bangalore this year -30th &31st March to be precise. And am I glad I attended it on both dates, unlike the last time when I went for one day and left almost immediately after lunch.

This time R.M.I.M was celebrating two birth centenaries – that of Chitragupta and Shamshad Begum. There was also a mention about the fact that Manna Dey would also have been 100 this year. Plus, there was a mention that many music luminaries of the past, who would have been 100 this year, need to be remembered.

On the occasion our Gajendraji reminisced about his encounter or meeting with the Shamshad Begum in 2012, when she was 92. He spoke about how sharp her memory was and about her sense of humour. He mentioned that when he asked her about her feelings towards her songs being remixed by the current generation her reply surprised him. She is said to have told him that by remixing, the songs were kept alive and more people were able to relish them.

Later during the post lunch session there was a debate or discussion on how social media impacted music and films. The discussion also touched whether it was right to colourise old black & white classics, remix or morph old videos etc. This was followed by Kushal Gopalka’s session where he spoke about his association with Shamshad Begumji. He mentioned another incident that showed Shamshad Begum’s view about life. He talked of an event for which he had escorted Shamshad Begumji; where the master of ceremonies asked her about her colleagues who were no more and had died rather young; for this -he says- her reply was “humari umr par nazar mat daaliye.”
My personal take-home from this was I got to meet the gracious, simple and humble Sudha Malhotra. She sounds very melodious in person even when she speaks.

For more on the meet I suggest visiting here.

April end saw me in Mumbai for a few days on some personal agenda. Which I clubbed with a met-up of friends from ASAD. That was a good gangout with guruji also landing back in Mumbai that morning and meeting Bakshishji and Nitinji for the first time (didn’t feel it was the first time though) and of course Sudhirji was also there. So, in all a good gangout even if I was present only for a short time I enjoyed.

June end was a trip to Bhopal to meet my gang of girls from college and chilling out in the heat of Madhya Bharat. But that was also fun, we parted with a promise of making it an annual affair.

July saw me in Kerala, the island resort of Ashtamudi, with newly acquired relatives and getting to know them. September end was Navaratri which saw me in my ‘sasural ka village’ as well as in Kolkata for Durga Pooja. A long-cherished dream of visiting the pooja pandals was fulfilled by my personal Santa.

Actually, for all of the above, I must thank my personal Santa as he never questions me or my intentions. He also turned a year older, an age when people normally hang-up their boots and think of taking life easy having worked for 40 years now. But my Santa has not yet thought about his boots or rest. He has a lot of enthusiasm for outings and excursions and is already planning his next joyful weekend. These breaks are what keep him going in stressful work conditions I suppose. God bless him forever.

I must thank our Sadanandji and Sudhirji for the song with this post. I am thanking Sudhirji as he suggested the song, since I have little knowledge of any song featuring the Shamshad Begum – Chitragupta combination. On a busy Saturday morning I pestered Sudhirji to find out if any Shamshad Begum song in Chitragupta’s music direction was left to be posted and he gave me this song before the day was out. Sadanandji has to be thanked as he is the one who has uploaded the song to YouTube. The movie is the 1953 release “Manchala” which had music by Chitragupta, the additional reason for my choosing this is, it is a duet by Shamshad Begum and Chitragupta.

Raja Mehdi Ali Khan was the lyricist for a movie which was produced and directed by Jayant Desai and had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Agha Jeevan etc in the cast. Going by the lyrics and the sound of the song the male in the song could have been Agha.
Happy Partying & tik tok tik tok to 2020.

Today’s song is from film Izzat-1952.

The title “Izzat” obviously carried lot of “Izzat” with producers, because I find this Title in 1937, 1952, 1968 and 1992. Further there was Izzat Aabroo-90 and Izzat Aabroo-2005 (I thought these words were synonyms), Izzat ka Rakhwala-2010, Izzat ke Lutere-90, Izzat ki Roti-93, and Izzatdaar-90. I am waiting for a title Izzat ka Falooda. In these days of strange Titles, this is not impossible.

The cast of the film Izzat-52 was Nirupa Roy, Amarnath, Manorama, Agha, Rajni, Jeevan, Veera, P.Kailash, Pesi Patel, Ramesh Thakur, Baby kalpana etc etc.The film was made by Taimur Art productions. Its owner Taimur Behram Shah was the Producer and also the director of this film. The music was by Bulo C Rani. There were two lyricists,namely Raja Mehedi Ali Khan (7 songs) and Butaram Sharma who wrote just 1 song. Taimur Behram Shah was earlier in Ranjit, working as an assistant director. He got opportunity to direct 2 films of Ranjit – Lakhon mein ek-47 and Bhool Bhulaiya-49. Then he started his own production house and made Izzat-52.

Film industry has a cycle, just like Nature. An actor comes, becomes a Hero, after few years works as a side Hero and then shifts to do character roles. There are some actors, who started as Heros, remained Heros and retired as Heros. Such cases are very few. Same applies to actresses too, There are more actresses who quit films, while they were still Heroines. The reasons are usually, marriage or getting children etc. I remember at least one actress, who was a popular Heroine in the late 30s and 40s-till 1947, but stopped acting in films, because her husband strictly forbade her from doing roles other than Heroine. Her name is Meenakshi Shirodkar.

From the cast, we can see that Nirupa Roy, Amarnath, Manorama, Jeevan, Veera, Agha and P.Kailash began as Lead actors and then became side Heroine/Hero and lastly settled for character roles. Some readers may be surprised about Agha being a Hero anytime. It is interesting to note that in film ” Jwar Bhata “-44, Agha was the Hero and Dilip Kumar had made his Debut in this film as a side Hero. While Agha’s Heroine was Shamim, Dilip’s Heroine was Mrudula – a Debutante herself.

Among the cast, the name of P.Kailash and his mention as a Hero in the past, may be a matter of surprise for some readers. For a long time, I was very curious about this actor. One day I was reading a book “Asli Nakli Chehre” ( असली नकली चेहरे ) by Vithal Pandya. In this book, he has given information about P.Kailash, who did the main role in film ” Jai Hanuman-48″, for which Pandya was an assistant Director. Vithal Pandya had spent over 30 years in film industry from the 30s and 40s. He worked with many directors and in many banners. He wrote 2 books in Gujarati/Hindi, which are highly informative with first hand knowledge. For example, he mentions that S N Tripathi, the Music Director was also an actor and was famous in the role of Hanuman in all Wadia movies. However in this film-Jai Hanuman-48, he had done the role of Ravan. Anyway, based on information in this book coupled with an article by M N Sardana ji, on Fb page ‘Voh din yaad karo’ about P.Kailash, here is some information on P.Kailash for our readers, first time. My thanks to both of them.

Mr P Kailash (Pandit Kailash Chandra Sharma),was born on 03 February 1924 at Multai , a small town in Distt Baitul ( Madhya Pradesh ) .After doing H.S.C., he did a stint of teaching in Akola. Bestowed with sharp features and deep voice, fair coloured P Kailash came to Bombay in 1946 to become an actor . He had not to wait for a long to have entry in the film line .

Seth Chandulal Shah gave him a chance in his mythological movie Jai Hanuman ,as hero opposite Nirupa Roy. The movie made under the banner of Ranjit Movietone was directed by Ram Chandra Thakur. Thereafter , Mr Kailash appeared in many mythological, fantasy and historical movies like Veer Durga Das, Sati Anusuiya, Maha Bharat, Prabhu Ki Mahima, Veer Arjun, Gopal Krishna, Nadir Shah, Thief Of Baghdad, Hercules ,Aab E Hayat, Gul E Bakawali etc. In 1953, he performed as a cop in Ranjit Mvietone’s Papi, along with Raj Kapoor. With Dilip Kumar, he did a role which had comic shades in Leader. Shirin Farhad ,made by veteran film maker Aspi Irani, was another movie in which his performance was much appreciated .

Mr P Kailash appeared in numerous movies made by Film makers like Shree Ram Bohra, B K Adarsh and Filmistan. Maine Jeena Seekh Liya, Hum Kahan Ja Rahe Hain, Picnic, Baba Sari Ladli (Rajasthani) ,Jekra Charnwa Mein Lagle Pranwa (Bhojpuri), Love and Murder, were the movies, Mr P Kailash did for the said film makers. Versatile director Krishan Chopra (May God Bless His Soul) ,who died before completing his second movie ,gave him a life time role of a tyrannical land lord in Heera Moti which was based upon the heart warming story Do Bailon Ki Katha, written by great writer Prem Chand . He brought alive the arrogant and heartless Zamindaar on the screen with his dynamic performance .

Krishan Chopra, impressed with the magnificent personality of Mr P Kailash, gave him an important role in his next movie Gaban ,which was completed by Hrishkesh Mukherjee ,after Mr Chopra passed away untimely. It was a sad coincidence ,that Mr P Kailash ,also did not live long. While on a visit to his birth place Multai, he suffered massive heart attack and left for his heavenly abode on 23 May 1967 . Payal Ki Jhankaar ,made by Filmistan and Thief of Baghdad by Mr Shree Ram Bohra were released later ,after he had gone forever in the young age of 43 years ,leaving his two daughters ,one son and wife .

P.Kailash acted in 43 films. His first film was Jai Hanuman-48 and the last released film was Irada-1971.

The Hero of film Izzat-52 was Amarnath. Amarnath (Bharadwaj) is one of the “same name confusions” victims. There were two Pt. Amarnath Music Directors, 1 actor Amar, 1 actor Amarnath and 1 actor/Director (K.) Amarnath. This Amarnath was born in Hafizabad, in Gujaranwala district of Punjab (Now in Pakistan) in 1922. He started acting in 1939 with Kidar Sharma’s “Dil hi to hai”. Graduating from doing small roles he was made the Leading Man in Dalsukh Pancholi’s film “Patjhad”, started in 1947 opposite Meena (Shorey). Pancholi had to flee Lahore due to Partition riots, but he carried the negatives of Patjhad. Though the film was censored in India in 1948, it seems it was never released.

Amarnath starred as Hero in many other films,like Naghma E Sehra-45, Papiha re-48, Barsat ki ek raat-48, Swayam sidha-49, Nai Bhabhi-50, Kamal ke phool-50, Sheesh Mahal-50, Jalte Deep-50, Johri-51, Nai zindagi-51 , Nirmohi-52, Nirmal-52, Izzat-52, Bahu Beti-53, Nav Durga-53, Toofan-54 etc. Then he switched over to side roles. In all, he worked in 81 films (CITWF data). His last film was Kaun ho tum-70.

The third uncommon name in the cast is that of Veera, about whom very few will be knowing. One time she was a very sensuous actress. Veera was from a Parsi family. Her full name was Veera Ankaleshwaria. Obviously, her family came from Ankaleshwar, a small industrial town(now), in Gujarat.

She started her career in films as a Heroine opposite Nasir khan in film Mazdoor-1945. Then came Shikari-46 and later Eight days-46, both had Ashok kumar as the Hero. Both the films were from Filmistan. Her last film as Heroine was Tohfa, opposite Rehman and Leela opposite Agha , both films from 1947. Then she stopped getting Heroine roles and shifted to side roles. In all she did 22 films.

Her other films were, Veena, Ziddi, Chanda ki Chandani- all 48, Sanwaria-49, Hamara Ghar and hamari beti- 1950, Hamari shaan, Ramjanma and Sagar-1951, Aasmaan, izzat, Moti mahal, Sanskar and Shin shinaki boobla boo-all 1952, Dana Pani-53, Boot polish and Sheeshe ki deewar both 1954.

She married Mohsin Abdulla, who had worked in Bombay Talkies as a writer. He was the younger brother of actress Renuka Devi ( Begum Mirza) and the First husband of actress Neena. After the marriage, both migrated to Pakistan in 1955. No news after that.

Today’s song is a duet sung by G M Durrani and Shamshad Begum. It is a typical song belonging to the 50’s music, influenced by C Ramchandra, O P Nayyar and Shankar Jaikishen. I liked this song. I am sure you too will like it.

ankhiyon mein pyaar kare
jhilmil jhilmil

Blog Day : 4076 Post No. : 15214

“Albeli”(1955) was produced and directed by Devendra Goel for Fils and Television, Bombay. The movie had Geeta Bali, PPradeep Kumar, Johny Walker,Randheer, Rama Sharma, Brij, Ranjana Shukla, Tuntun, Om Prakash, Yogendra, Robin Kumar, Raje Kapoor, Meena, Gareeb Kumar, Kaiser Usmani, Ranjeet etc, with guest appearances by Shankar A Palav, Jankidas and Madan Puri.

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

Here is the fifth song from “Albeli”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The movie had three Asha Bhonsle solos, one Lata solo and one duet by Lata and Hemant Kumar. So it is difficult to be sure about the picturisation of these songs. I request our knowledeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-O balma kyun na karoon main tose pyaar pyaar pyaar(Albeli)(1955) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, MD-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

o balma
o o o o o balma

o balma
kyun na karoon main tose
pyaar pyaar pyaar
main to prem deewaani
o o prem deewaani
o sainya kyun na dekhoon main tohe baar baar baar
tose preet puraani
o preet puraani
o o balma kyun na karoon main tose
pyaar pyaar pyaar
main to prem deewaani
o o prem deewaani

dil ki tamanna tere geeton mein khoyi re
phoolon ki aarzoo mein kaanton pe soyi re
tere liye o sainya kitna main royi re
kitna main royi re
phir bhi hui na aankhen chaar chaar chaar
main to prem deewaani
o o prem deewaani
o balma kyun na karoon main tose
pyaar pyaar pyaar
main to prem deewaani
o o prem deewaani

ho chuki tumhaari main to mujhe pehchaan lo
kya meri aarzoo hai nazron se jaan lo
main bekasoor piya baat meri maan lo
varna jee ro dongi main jaar jaar jaar
main to prem deewaani
o o prem deewani
o balma kyun na karoon main tose
pyaar pyaar pyaar
main to prem deewaani
o prem deewaani

Blog Day : 4045 Post No. : 15172

Today (15 august 2019) is the 73rd independence day of India. It is already evening and no post has appeared in the blog so far. But I will try and post topical songs today like we have always done in the blog on the past such occasions.

The first song of the day is from “Shaheed”(1948). This movie was directed by Ramesh Saigal for Filmistan. The movie had Chandramohan, Dilip Kumar, Kamini Kaushal, Ram singh, S L Puri, V. H. Desai, Shashi Kapoor, Raj adeeb, Prabhu Dayal etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past. One of these six songs was covered exactly nine years ago, and that was the most well known song from the movie, a patriotic song, viz Watan ki raah mein watan ke naujawaan shaheed ho .

Here is the list of the six songs of the movie that have been covered in the past:

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Badnaam na ho jaaye muhabbat ka fasaana 2035 8-Oct-09
2 Watan ki raah mein watan ke naujawaan shaheed ho 2790 15-Aug-10
3 Bachpan ki yaad dheere dheere pyaar ban gayi 12574 17-Nov-16
4 Aana hai to aa jaao 12579 18-Nov-16
4 Hain ham kahaan aur tum kahaan 12585 19-Nov-16
5 Aaja bedardi baalmaa koi ro ro pukaare (Shaheed) 15164 9-Aug-19

The seventh and final song is a stage song performed by kids and watched by elders. The stage performance is a patriotic song performance.

HFGK mentions Lalita Deulkar and chorus as the singer. I am not sure that I can detect Lalita Deulkar’s voice in the song, but I will take the words of HFGK for it. To me the song sounds like being sung by a few child voices (unattributed) and chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the singing voices.

Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by GHulam Haider.

With this song, all the songs of “Shaheed”(1948) get covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish every Indian and Indian origin people a very happy 73th Independence day. I am quite certain that we are looking forward to a prosperuos and strong India in the days to come.

dhat tere shaitaan ki

Hind mein rah kar kahta hai tu

Hind mein rah kar kahta hai tu

le ja le ja door kahin
ye soorat bandar jaisi

pakdo iske sar ke baal
khench ke rakh do iski khaal
maaro maaro

ae bharat ke baalakon
gaao vande mataram
tum hindi ho
duniya ko sunaao vande mataram

jaag uthhe aazaadi ki
