Blog Day :

4518 Post No. : 16075

Some regulars of the blog are more keen eyed than most people and they keep looking for important events taking place in the blog. One important event happened in the blog yesterday. I became aware of it mainly because some regulars pointed it out in our whatsapp group.

On this day in the afternoon, the blog silently registered its 14 millionth visitor. The blog began 12 years ago on 19 july 2008 and it took the blog 4517 days to reach this magic figure on 29 november 2020.

Here is a summary of all the million visitors that have taken place in the blog so far :-

Visitor number Date achieved Blog day number Days taken for the million hits Remarks
1 million 25 October 2010 829 829 Slowest one million @ 1206 visitors per day
2 millions 7 November 2011 1207 378 @2645 visitors per day
3 millions 7 April 2012 1359 152 Fastest one million @ 6579 visitors per day
4 millions 10 December 2012 1606 247 @ 4049 visitors per day
5 millions 29 October 2013 1929 323 @3096 visitors per day
6 millions 12 October 2014 2277 348 @2873 visitors per day
7 millions 4 July 2015 2542 265 @ 3773 visitors per day
8 millions 20 April 2016 2833 291 @ 3436 visitors per day
9 millions 24 February 2017 3143 310 @ 3226 visitors per day
10 millions 14 January 2018 3467 324 @ 3086 visitors per day
11 millions 22 November 2018 3779 312 @ 3205 visitors per day
12 millions 4 July 2019 4003 224 @ 4464 visitors per day
13 millions 8 February 2020 4222 219 @ 4566 visitors per day
14 millions 29 November 2020 4517 295 @ 3390 visitors per day

Overall rate of visitors till now is 3099 visitors per day.

The above table shows that the blog, despite dealing in a non populist topic in a non TRP seeking manner, still draws a regular stream of visitors. It certainly serves as a source of encouragement for us.

I remember that the blog used to have visitors in trickles (in double figures in a day) during its early days. It was on 16 august 2008 that the blog touched three figures in a day for the first time. It was on 23 january 2009 (189th day of the blog) when more than one thousand visitors visited the blog for the first time. 5 August 2009 saw more than 2000 visitors for the first time in a day. The blog has even seen over ten thousand visits in a day. Here are the details:-

Date Number of visitors Blog day Remarks
19 July 2008 4 1 Only four visitors on the first day. Only occasion of single digit visitors in a day
20 July 2008 12 2 First time the blog reached double figure of visitors on the second day of the blog
16 August 2008 253 29 First time the blog reached three figures of visitors in a day
23 January 2009 1145 189 First time the blog reached four figures of visitors in a day
29 August 2009 2071 407 First time the blog reached 2000 visitors in a day
15 July 2011 3060 1092 First time the blog reached 3000 visitors in a day
4 October 2011 4137 1173 First time the blog reached 4000 visitors in a day
7 October 2011 5379 1176 First time the blog reached 5000 visitors in a day
9 October 2011 6082 1178 First time the blog reached 6000 visitors in a day
10 October 2011 7561 1179 First time the blog reached 7000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 8000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 9000 visitors in a day
19 October 2011 10630 1188 First and only time the blog reached 10000 visitors in a day

It took the blog more than 1000 days before it could get 3000 plus visitors in a day. But then all of a sudden, the blog touched heights of 4000 plus, 5000 plus, 6000 plus, 7000 plus, 8000 plus , 9000 plus and 10000 plus visits in a day in the month of October 2011, all within 15 days !

All these figures are interesting figures and they have been achieved without making any conscious attempts. In fact, we are not even aware how and why these visitors find us. All we know from wordpress stats is that the blog gets hits from all around the globe. Indiais the major country where this blog gets viewed the most and USA comes second. Other major countries from where this blog gets viewed are UK, Pakistan, Malaysia, Canada, UAE, Mauritius, Australia, Sri Lanka, Singapore, South Africa etc.

All we can conclude from the above is that Hindi movie music, especially those created decades ago, enjoy good following all around the world among music lovers of Indian origin and sometimes even among non Indian origin persons. People who are looking for difficult to find songs are likely to find their way into the blog. Some of them, after stumbling upon the blog may decide to bookmark the blog for further reference.

It gives us encouragement to find that we are visited even by people who are themselves associated with HFM and they sometimes post messages in the blog or contact us as well.

The figures about visitors to the blog are in a way a reflection on the fact that the work being done in the blog for old HF songs is being noticed and appreciated. And this is just the reward that we, like most normal human beings seek. Such appreciation is just the tonic that keeps us motivated and make us do this work regularly without taking any breaks.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati”(1969). This song is sung by Rafi and Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Only the audio of the song is available as of now. This movie was produced by Surinder Kapoor and directed by Bhappi Sanie for Amar Chhaya Productions. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Babita, Kamini Kaushal, Om Prakash, Helen, Rajendra Nath, Laxmi Chhaya, Mumtaz Begum, Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Hari Shivdasani, Sudhir, Sulochana Latkar, Sujata, Snehlata, Jagadish Kamal, Maqbool, Devi Chand, Baba Benjamin, Shobha, Madan Kenny etc in it. So, my guess is that thd song was picturised on Shashi Kapoor and Babita. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part X: Year 1956
———————————————————————————————————

No we have reached part ten of this ambitious series. Lata Mangeshkar sang her first Hindi film songs in 1946. She sang just four songs that year and 5 songs the next year. By the time she completed one decade of her career, she had already sung more than one thousand songs in HFM, becoming the first playback singer to achieve this feat.

1956 was the eleventh year of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in Hindi movies. In other words she entered the second decade of her HFM career this year. If she had sung 4 songs in 3 movies in 1946, 1956 saw her singing a whopping 204 songs in 49 movies.

Here are the details of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 1956 :-

Statistically, this was the third most prolific year till then for Lata Mangeshkar. This year she sang 204 songs.

In 1956, she gave playback in 49 movies. 120 movies were released in 1956 and they contained 765 songs. So Lata Mangeshkar gave plaback in 41 % of the movies released in 1956 and her voice appeared in 27 % of the songs created that year !

In 1956, Lata Mangeshkar worked with 24 music directors and 27 lyricists. She worked with six music directors for the first time this year. They were Bipin Babul, Kamal Mitra, Mukesh, S K Pal, Sanmukh babu Upadhyay and Vishwanathan Ramamurthy. This year, she worked with three lyricists for the first time. They were B D Mishra, Manoharlal Khanna and S P Kalla.

By the end of 1956, Lata Mangeshkar had sung 1548 songs in 375 movies. The blog contains 1278 of these songs. By the end of 1955, she had worked with 85 Music directors and 109 lyricists.

Here is the summary of her playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1956 :

Year Movie count Lata song in the blog Lata HFM songs recorded in the year Lata solo songs Male duet Female duet Other songs Remarks
1946 3 movies 4 4 4 0 0 0
1947 3 movies 5 5 3 1 0 1

Total upto 1956 375 movies 1278 1548 1159 280 76 33

One can see that Lata Mangeshkar sang in 49 movies that were released in 1956. All Lata Mangeshkar songs have been covered in 30 of these movies. So we only have 19 movies of 1956 left from which Lata Mangeshkar songs can still be covered.

Alphabetically the first such movie is “26th January”(1956). This movie was produced and directed by Ramesh Sahgal for Sahgal Productions, Bombay. The movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Ajeet, Johny Walker, Sapru, B M Vyas, Leela Mishra, Cuckkoo, Balraj Mehta Chamanpuri, Nishi (debutant) etc in it. The movie also had guest appearances by Gajanan Jaageerdaar, Jagdeesh Sethi, Randheer, Gyani and Patanjali.

The movie had seven songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog. The movie had five Lata solos. Both songs covered in the blog were Lata solo songs.

Here is the third Lata solo song from “26th January”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song, sung by Lata Mangeshkar is penned by Rajinder Krishan. C Ramchandra is the music director.

Incidentally, Rajinder Krishan by 1956 had penned 255 songs for Lata Mangeshkar and C Ramchandra had composed 237 Lata Mangeshkar songs. They were the top most lyricists and music director respectively as far as working with Lata Mangeshkar till that time was concerned.

Listening to this song tells me that we still have lots and lots of forgotten gems left unexplored. I listened to this song for the first time only just now.


Song-Aankh royi magar muskuraana padaa(26th January)(1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

aankh royi magar muskuraana pada
aankh royi magar muskuraana pada
dil ke tukde huye
phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar

baghbaan aaj khush hai chaman bech ke
apni ulfat ki khaatir watan bech ke
baghbaan aaj khush hai chaman bech ke
apni ulfat ki khaatir watan bech ke
sar pe iljaam ye bhi uthhaana pada
sar pe iljaam ye bhi uthhaana pada
dil ke tukde huye phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar
aankh royi magar muskuraana pada
dil ke tukde huye
phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar

aa aa aa aa aa
tere dam se jawaan ye muhabbat rahe
tere dam se jawaan ye muhabbat rahe
mera kya hai magar tu salaamat rahe
tere dam se jawaan ye muhabbat rahe
mera kya hai magar tu salaamat rahe
bas yahi soch kar zahar khaana pada
bas yahi soch kar zahar khaana pada
dil ke tukde huye
phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar
aankh royi magar muskuraana pada
dil ke tukde huye
phir bhi aana pada
aankh royi magar

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these seven songs :-

15998 Kab tak tu Bhagwan se apna aap chhupaayegaa 27 October 2020

One song remains to be discussed. Here is that eighth and final song from “Fifty Fifty”(1956). This song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

What a lovely song to listen to. Only the audio of the song is available. It appears almost certain that a song like this can only be picturised on the leading lady f the movie, and that was Nalini Jaiwant in this movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, all the songs of “Fifty Fifty” (1956) are covered in the blog. The movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Jo baat abhi tak thhi dil mein (Fifty Fifty)(1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

jo baat abhi tak thhi dil mein
honthon pe wo aa hi jaati hai
honthon pe wo aa hi jaati hai
naadaan balam aise bhi kahin
ye preet jataai jaati hai
ye preet jataai jaati hai

honthon ki zaroorat hi kya hai
afsaana-e-dil kehne ke liye
honthon ki zaroorat hi kya hai
afsaana-e-dil kehne ke liye
chup rehke kahaani ulfat ki
aankhon se sunaai jati hai
aankhon se sunaai jati hai
naadaan balam aise bhi kahin
ye preet jataai jaati hai
ye preet jataai jaati hai

jab raat ko taare khilte hain
tanhaaai mein do dil milte hain
jab raat ko taare khilte hain
tanhaai mein do dil milte hain
jab saara zamaana sota hai
tab preet jagaai jaati
tab preet jagaai jaati
naadaan balam aise bhi kahin
ye preet jataai jaati hai
ye preet jataai jaati hai

Here is the seventh song from “Fifty Fifty”(1956) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

ONly the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is that the song is a beggar/ fakir song on some character artist.


Song-Kab tak tu Bhagwan se apna aap chhupaayega(Fifty Fifty)(1956) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

kab tak tu bhagwaan se apna aap chhupaayega aa
tera likkha ik din tere samane aayega aa aa
saamne aayega
kab tak tu bhagwaan se apna aap chhupaayega aa
tera likkha ik din tere samane aayega aa aa
saamne aayega

jo saagar ke andar seepi beech chupaaye moti
dekh rahi hai sab kuchh logon us maalik ki jyoti
jo saagar ke andar seepi beech chhupaaye moti
dekh rahi hai sab kuchh logon us maalik ki jyoti
arre us maalik ki jyoti
jag ke bhedi kya bande se dhokha khaayega aa
tera likkha ik din tere saamne aayega
kab tak tu bhagwaan se apna aap chhupaayega
tera likkha ik din tere samane aayega aa aa
saamne aayega

jiski marzi bin o moorakh hil na paaye tinka
lekh likha hai paass usi ke tere ik ik din ka
jiski marzi bin o moorakh hil na paaye tinka
lekh likha hai paass usi ke tere ik ik din ka
arre tere ik ik din ka
kahaan phir uski nazron se tu bach ke jaayega
tera likha ek din tere saamne aayega
kab tak tu bhagwan se apna aap chhupaayega aa
tera likkha ik din tere saamne aayega aa aa
saamne aayega

“Khaandaan” (1965)was produced by Vasu Menon and directed by A Bhim Singh for Vasu Films, Madras. The movir had Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Pran, Sudesh Kumar, Manmohan Krishna, Mohan Choti, Om Prakash, Ravikant, Arundev, Mumtaz, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lalita Pawar, Helen, Jeewankala etc in it.

This archtypical “social” movie had the usual fare typical of movies made in the South.

“Khaandaan”(1965) had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details:-

15795 Badi der bhayi Nandlala teri raah takey Brijbaala 11.08.2020

Here is the eighth and final song from “Khandaan”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a synchronised stage dance performance song on Helen and Jeewankala. Their energetic dance performance is bound to recharge the spirits of the watchers even today, 55 years after this video was first witnessed by moviegoers in moviehalls. Watching this performance made me realise that performing such dances were the secret behind the figures of these dancers. 🙂

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

With this song, all the eight songs of “Khandaan”(1965) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

‘Ulfat’ was the maiden offer from K Razdan, the producer. The film was directed by K Shankar, who had directed many Tamil and Telugu films apart from some Hindi films such as ‘Bharosa’ (1963), ‘Rajkumar’ (1964), ‘Sachaai’ (1969), ‘Parde Ke Peeche’ (1971), ‘Chhote Sarkaar’ (1974), ‘Raja’ (1975) etc. The main star cast consisted of Raaj Kumar, Sadhana, Waheeda Rehman, Nazir Hussain, Agha, Shammi, Gulshan Bawra, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Mohan Choti, Sundar etc.

K Razdan started his career as a film publicist and Public Relation Officer for some film productions houses and actors. He was associated with Guru Dutt Films, Ashok Kumar Films, Sippy Films, Sagar Films, Vishal International Productions of Manoj Kumar etc. ‘Ulfat’ was his maiden film as well as the last film as a producer. Why did the film ‘Ulfat’ which went to the floor sometime in early 1970s, take so much time to complete?

I had read an article on Raaj Kumar in ‘Daily Hunt’ in which there was a paragraph on Raaj Kumar creating problems for K Razdan, the producer during the shooting of the film. For trivial issues, Raaj Kumar used to have problems with other actors and crew members. For instance, Raaj Kumar did not like Cinematographer, G Singh for his habit of scratching his beard while filming the shoot. One can observe from the credit title of the film that there were 3 cinematographers listed for the film.

Fed up with his tantrums, K Razdan filed a suit in the court against Raaj Kumar. While it is not known as to what was the outcome of the suit, Razdan was happy that at least he made Raaj Kumar to sit on a wooden bench in the court room with commoners during the court hearings. K Razdan decided to expose Raaj Kumar by writing a book, ‘Nark Yatra’ sharing his experiences of working with Raaj Kumar. However, he refrained from publishing the book. Finally, in disgust, K Razdan abandoned the film left unfinished. He continued to work as film publicist and PRO in the Hindi film industry till 1990.

Raaj Kumar has been known for his eccentricity. His decision to take charge of the unfinished film in early 1990s with good amount of investment was nothing less than a part of his eccentric behaviour. He required Sadhana for shooting a college scene and a romantic song with him. However, she flatly refused to join the shooting. Her rejection is understandable as in early 1990s, Sadhana was around 50 and Raaj Kumar was 64. The audience would not have appreciated watching both of them in a college scene and singing a romantic song!

Finally, Raaj Kumar completed the film by using a double for shooting the unfinished scenes of Sadhana with long shots and her back to the camera in close-up scenes. Of other actors, only Waheeda Rehman agreed to resume shooting for her parts. The dialogues for the left-over scenes were written by Raaj Kumar himself. Panini, his younger son, provided the background music. Obviously, with a long delay in completing the film with patched-up works, the film was out of date. There were no takers for distributing the films. Finally, according to a comment on one of the songs uploaded on the video sharing platform, the film was released under a new title. ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) on VHS tapes in August 1994 for satellite TVs. I am not sure whether the film had a theatrical release anytime thereafter.

I have no idea about the story of ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994). Looking at the star cast of the film, the story appears to be a love triangle. All the 5 songs of the film which was released by HMV on LP in 1978 were retained in the film. 4 songs were written by Rajinder Krishan while one song which Qateel Shifai had already written for a Pakistani film in the early 70s was used with a new tune. All the songs were set to music by Kalyanji-Anandji.

I am presenting the first song, ‘bahaaron se kahenge nazaaron se kahenge’ from ‘Ulfat’ (1978, UR/‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) to appear on the Blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi on the words of Rajinder Krishan. Kalyanji-Anandji composed the music. The song is picturised on Raaj Kumar and a double of Sadhana.

At first, I was not too keen to provide the link of the video clip of the song which was probably taken from VHS tape of the film. The visuals are very bad and audio quality is average. Also, it is a shorter clip than the audio clip which was released in 1978 under the film’s original title ‘Ulfat’. One can make out from the visuals in video clip that the female actor is not Sadhana but her double. The audio clip of the song is excellent in audio quality and is longer. In the audio clip, there is also a bonus addition of the sad version of the song with dialogues between Raaj Kumar and Sadhana.

With this song, ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) makes its debut on the Blog.

Today’s song is from a film with an unusual story-Ferry-1954.

The story of the film was written by Dhruv Chatterjee, dialogues were by Akhtar Ul Imaan and the screenplay was done by the Producer and Director of the film – Hemen Gupta. His entire family was involved in this film. Wife Ratna Gupta sang a song in the film and his daughter Baby Bula acted in the film. This Baby Bula became Archana, when she grew up to be a Heroine in her debut film Umang-70. Next film was Buddha Mil Gaya-71 and her third and last film was Anokha Daan-72. After this she left films, married her classmate Yogesh Motwani and settled in life. For some time, she was doing Fabric business also.

The lead pair of this film was Dev Anand and Geeta Bali. At this time, Dev was still uncertain as to what type of roles he fits into. His own wish was to be a Romantic Hero and from the film Munimji-55 onwards, his career really took off as a Romantic hero – an image he desperately (and later on pathetically) tried to preserve in his films. When others stopped giving him films,he started producing and directing his own films, acting in it the same way he did, when he was young.

Dev Anand acted in 116 films, directed 19 films, sang in 4 films and even wrote 2 songs in film ‘Mr. Prime Minister’-2005. Prior to film Ferry-54, his films were of a variety of subjects, from musical to comedy to serious types. In the film Zalzala-52, he died on screen for the first time. The last time he died on screen was in the film Guide-65. He never liked to die on screen. It did not fit into his scheme of future planning to become a Romantic Hero. Film Tamasha-52 was a sort of comedy film and Ferry -54 was still a different type of role.

The film was a story of a widower Zamindar, Vikas (Dev), who also worked as a Government officer in a village. He has a young child-Raju (Master Babu, who became Ritesh Kumar as a grown up actor and also married actress Maushumi Chatterjee. He was the son of Hemant Kumar), who is curious about his mother. His father has told him that she has gone beyond the river and lives in a big white palace. The child hopes that one day his mother will surely come back to him. So, he, along with his next door friend Minu (Baby Bula) goes to the River bank every day, expecting his mother to arrive in the Ferry some day.

Once when Vikas has gone to the city for work, a young girl is found in the river. She is unconscious. Villagers bring her to the nearest house of Vikas. Doctor is called. The girl survives. She is Juhi-a tawayaf’s daughter (Geeta Bali). She stays in that house. The boy Raju develops a bond with her and she too starts loving the boy. However the Chachi of Vikas, who looks after the household does not like it. When Vikas comes back, he learns everything. When she tells her story he understands that she was kidnapped as a baby and sold to the tawaif – Munnibai (Chand Burke). Munnibai tries to sell her to customers. To avoid further trouble, Juhi jumps into the river.

Due to the opposition of Chachi and the villagers, Juhi is asked to leave the house. She goes to the river to wait for the Ferry. Raju falls sick and Vikas too is uneasy. He has also developed an affinity for her. He takes Raju and rushes to the river in time to stop Juhi from boarding it . They come back to the house. Vikas finally decides to marry Juhi and Raju also gets his mother. Happy ending.

Film Ferry was released first in Bombay at the Swastik cinema on 8-10-1954 and it ran only for 7 weeks. The All India response was also lukewarm. When I saw this film in Hyderabad in late October, I had liked it, but felt that the end was too hastily wound up. Maybe the length was already too much. The film had music by Hemant kumar. Like all Bangla composers, Hemant also had a ” Maajhee” song in this film (they could never resist the temptation if a river is in the film). There was a child song ( another weak point of HK), by baby Bula and Master Babu. 2 solos by Geeta Dutt and 1 by Ratna Gupta. One 2 part Mujra song by Laxmi Shankar. In addition a record for Sitar and Sarod playing was also issued. Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and his protege Nikhil Bannerjee had played them.

Director Hemen Gupta’s name will be remembered for a long time in Hindi film history for two films that he directed. One was the early era patriotic film “Anandmath”-52,based on the novel of Bankim babu,in which Hemen Gupta himself, Pradeep kumar and Hemant kumar made their debuts in Hindi films. The second film was Kabuliwala – 61, which won acclaim and a National Award too. This movie was a based on Gurudev Rabibdranath Tagore’s novel of the same name.

I was looking for information on Hemen Gupta ,but found it very difficult. As I have already said recently, getting information about southern and Bengali artistes in English, is a difficult task. When I was drawing a blank from all sources, Lady Luck smiled on me. Unexpectedly, one of my friends from the US, sent me a PDF of Hemen Gupta’s Biography and the Filmography, prepared by his own son Jayant Gupta. What a coincidence ! I was listening to a duet of Uma Devi and S.D.Batish for the film Taaksaal-56 and at the same time received most unexpectedly the authentic information on its director Hemen Gupta !!

Although the original PDF contains many pages, I have abridged and edited this Biography to suit this article. My sincere thanks to shri Jayant Guptaji and shri Salim Shah ji for this.

Hemen Gupta was born on 21-3-1912,in a middle class family in Rajasthan. His Grandfather shri Nabakumar Gupta was a big Zamindar in Dacca. Hemen’s early school and college education was done in Dacca. He joined an active political career in 1926 as a Congress worker and a freedom fighter. He was arrested in 1931 and was in jail till 1938. In the jail, he studied and completed his Master’s degree in History with Honours. He also read many books on film making and was interested in it. When he was released he joined New Theatres. He wanted to make Patriotic films but till 1946 he could not do so. He made the film Bhuli Nai in Bangla-a fiercely patriotic film which was rejected by the censors. After many obstacles it got released. He also made another patriotic film in Bangle ’42’. Both films gave him name and fame.

Shashadhar Mukherjee of Filmistan in Bombay called him with an attractive offer and Hemen came to Bombay. He wrote the screenplay and directed the film “Anandmath”-52. He took Pradeep Kumar as a Hero and Hemanta Kumar as MD- his old colleagues in Calcutta. For all the three it was a debut in Hindi films. In 1953 he started his own banner “Film trust of India”and made “Ferry”-54, a love story with Dev Anand and Geeta Bali. Again Hemanta Kumar was the MD. Hemant Kumar’s young son Ritesh played a small role in this film (Later Ritesh married the famous actress Maushami Chatterjee). Ratna Gupta,Hemen’s wife, sang songs in this film. His last film under Hemen Gupta Productions was Taaksaal-56. Meanwhile he directed Meenar in 1954.

He was a staunch nationalist and idealist who wanted to make artistic films,but the producers,distributors and the financiers did not allow him that freedom. He felt suffocated. He was fed up with the commercialism in film making and he had a difficulty in coping up with the market demands. In 1961 he directed “Kabuliwala”and won accolades and a National Award too. His last film was “Netaji Subhash chandra Bose””-1966 for producer B K Adarsha.

He wanted to resume making Bangla films. His film Ánamika’ was almost completed, when suddenly he died of brain Hemorrhage,on 1-7-1967.

He was the father of actress Archana( Buddha mil gaya-71).He directed the following films in Hindi-
Anandmath-52, Ferry-54, Meenar-54, Taaksaal-56, Raaj kamal-57, Insaaf kahan hai-59, Baabar-60, Kabuliwala-61, and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose-66.

You will also find an unusual and unknown name Chand Burke in the cast of the film. Very little is known about her. Chand Burke made her debut in Maheshwari Productions’ Kahan Gaye (1946), which Niranjan wrote and directed. They fell in love on the sets and got married in 1945. Thereafter, Chand appeared in a number of films made in Lahore, and was widely known as “the Dancing Lily of the Punjab.”

Partition and her subsequent migration to Bombay adversely affected her career. After “Hamari Manzil,” which was released in 1949, Chand Burke went into complete oblivion. It was Raj Kapoor who selected her for that important role as children’s tormentor in “Boot Polish-53,” over 200 other contestants, her screen-test convincing Raj Kapoor that she was a talented actress. Some of her well known films were Ferry-54, Basant Bahar-56, yahudi ki beti-56, Adalat-58 and Lajwanti-58.

Chand was the only one in a family of twelve brothers and sisters to have joined the films (her brother S. M. Burke, I.C.S., was a Minister to the Scandina­vian countries for Pakistan). Chand obtained judicial separation by mutual consent from her husband, writer-director Niranjan in 1954.

She was later married to Sunder Singh Bhavnani- grandfather of superstar Ranveer Singh. She is also related to Suneeta Kapoor.

She acted in about 30 films. Her last film was Pehchan-72.

Today’s song is an exceptionally sweet song – Lori – sung by Geeta Dutt. I would rate this Lori amongst her best songs and one of the best Loris of HFM ever. I am sure all the listeners will also love it. In addition to Geeta’s Lori, there is also a small video where Hemant Kumar, Baby Bula and Geeta dutt sing one line each. Enjoy….

Hullo Atuldom

Some songs keep playing in our mind as if on loop. This I had said in one of my previous posts. Today’s song is one such.
I saw it consciously a number of times in the last few years. Consciously means I may have seen it in the ’70s or ’80s when these movies were aired on the doordarshan but I was not old enough to appreciate them or the meaning of their lyrics. But now on repeat viewing of the movie I am getting wiser. I had filed away (mentally) that this needs to be on the blog. So here it is.

“Sadhu Aur Shaitaan” a 1968 release had 4 songs all written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmi-Pyare were the music directors. Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Manna Dey and Mohd. Rafi were the playback singers.

Only one song has been posted on the blog. That one had Mehmood replaying his “hum kale hain toh kya hua” character. We had Mehmood mouthing the initial part of “Chunia, ari kidhar hai ri tu? Mere dil ki rani. Mere nawaason ki naani. aa gaya hoon main. arre dekh le main aa gaya permission leko”.

Today’s song has him giving gyaan about the importance of knowing one’s mother tongue in addition to learning “A B C D”. We should remember that this was a movie which came at a time when we had enough students opting for schools which were not essentially English medium. We should also remember that all those who trained in non-English medium schools were no less intelligent and we have many pioneers in various fields from those students too. I know I will be stirring a hornet’s nest if I talk about which is a better language for educating the masses of the country.

My personal feeling is that education should be in a language where in the parents also understand what the child is learning so that they are able to clarify doubts that the child has as he is studying. People may feel that my thoughts are very old fashioned but…..

Today happens to be the birth anniversary of Mehmood who would have been 88. He knew how to bring a smile on the viewer’s face, how to tickle their funny bone. He was the son of actor/dancer Mumtaz Ali and brother of dancer Minu Mumtaz (about whom our Sadanandji has written in his this post). His brother Anwar Ali was also an actor who paired with Mehmood in “Bombay To Goa” as Rajesh to Mehmood’s Khanna.

Mehmood took up odd jobs at a rather young age to help look after his large family which had 7 siblings. He decided to try acting to support his family once he married and had his first son and had his first break in “C.I.D” with a small role of the killer. He had other small unnoticed roles in “Do Bigha Zameen” “Pyaasa” etc. His innings in Bollywood was peppered with comic roles that were an essential part of the story and we often saw him drill sense into older characters towards the end of the movie.

I saw a part of “Meri bhabhi” (1969) this morning where he was doing just that as Shambu. But he was a class apart when he turned to movie making and gave us classics like “Bhoot Bungla”, “Padosan”, “Bombay To Goa” and the most poignant, message carrying of them all “Kunwara Baap”. His last movie released in 1996 “Dushman Duniya Ka” which he directed and Jeetendra headed the cast. It is interesting to note that Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan had special appearances in it.

Remembering the actor, producer, director Mehmood with this song sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle.

One can see that the iconic patriotic song Jahaan daal daal par sone ki chidiyaan karti hai baseraa is from this movie.

The fifth snd final song from the movie is also a patriotic song. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

This song, being discussed on 28 september 2020 pays tribute to Mahendra Kapoor, a singer of many iconic patriotic songs whose remembrance day falls on 27 september. Today is the 113th birth annivdrsary of the great Freedom fighter martyr Shaheed Bhagat Singh(28 september 1907-23 march 1931 and we pay our humble tribute to him on this day.

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

With this song, all the songs of “Sikandar e Azam”(1965) are covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

अय माँ आ
तेरे बच्चे कई करोड़
अय माँ आ

तेरा आँचल छूनेवाला
हाथ काट कर रख देंगे
तेरे चरणों में दुश्मन का
कटा हुआ सर रख देंगे
निकल पड़े हैं रण में तेरे
दूध कि कीमत देनेवाले ए
आंधी तूफ़ान के पाले
लाज तेरी के रखवाले ए
अय माँ आ
तेरे बच्चे कई करोड़
अय माँ आ

लहू रगों में उबल रहा है

जहां गिरेगी एक बूँद

आंधी तूफ़ान के पाले
लाज तेरी के रखवाले ए
अय माँ आ
तेरे बच्चे कई करोड़
अय माँ आ
तेरे बच्चे कई करोड़

दुश्मन समझे सिर्फ अहिंसावादी से
ये टक्कर है
वो क्या जाने हर ऊँगली में
एक सुदर्शन चक्कर है
डंटे हुए है मोड़ मोड़ पर
भीम और अर्जुन मतवाले ए
आंधी तूफ़ान के पाले
लाज तेरी के रखवाले ए
अय माँ आ तेरे बच्चे कई करोड़
अय माँ आ तेरे बच्चे कई करोड़
आंधी तूफ़ान के पाले

Blog Day :

4450 Post No. : 15910

Recently,(12th of July’2020 to be precise) the blog saw the 5000th song from the decade 1951-1960 covered on the blog.

This ‘melodious decade’ has around ten thousand songs (as per HFGK) and if we look from that point of view we are just on the ‘half-way mark’ (or little above now as the songs are getting added frequently to this decade, thanks to the collaboration of our team members and also because of projects like Blog Ten Year Challenge.

All songs of this decade may not be available. Only time will tell us what will be the final tally for the songs of 1951-1960.

I noticed that there are a few movies of this decade which are represented in the blog by just one song. I will start from the movie where it began for me during the very first phase of the current ‘pandemic’ or the ‘first lock-down’ period.

It so happened that during the ‘first lock down’ when everything was becoming abnormal gradually and we were getting acquainted with the ‘new routine’, one evening we all family members were preparing for a ‘card game’ before finally retiring for the day. And there was some discussion that ‘kaise din aa gaye hain’ or ‘how the future days are going to be’ and it just knocked the ‘right’ cord in my brain … ‘din raat badalte hain, haalaat badalte hain’, and what more one wants if we have that soothing voice in such situations to calm our mind and give relaxation and the much needed motivation too.

(But today’s discussion is not about Hemant Kumar ji).
So, I played the song on my mobile (that has become new order of the day now since songs are available on YT and easy to play, as the cassette-recorder has taken a safe place in the shelves 🙂 ).

When I checked on the blog, I was surprised that only one song from this movie ‘Naya Sansaar-1959’ was posted on the blog. That piqued my interest and I searched for the other songs of this movie. I marked one song, another philosophical song from this movie for my presentation. I had then planned to present this song but could not make it some how as I had then started my job here and working at our place was resumed after first thirty days of the lock-down. Later I planned to present it on the birth anniversary of the lyricist of this song – Rajinder Krishan. But then it got delayed more and maybe it was waiting for the ‘right time’ for me as I experienced ‘how days things were changing for me after coming back from Kenya 🙂 and like the today’s song after ‘din raat badalte hain’ it was ‘ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa’. Very soon I lost the ‘shortest tenure job’ of my life. May be God wanted me to rest and spend ‘quality time with my family (which I missed due to my stay in Kenya) :).

After that we had a ‘relocation of the rented accommodation’ in the same city.

So, a little bit changing of ‘surroundings’ again, and though some ‘minor health issues’ bothering (our Doctor is aware 🙂 ) it’s almost two months now at the new place. And as they say ‘this shall also pass’, yes!!
But one thing is constant for me and continues … ‘blog, music, songs’ …

Thanks to God and our well-wishers all of us are safe and healthy so far …

Today on the ‘thirty-third’ ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.06.1919-23.09.1987) of lyricist Rajinder Krishan, as a tribute to him, we are going to listen to a song penned by him from the same movie ‘Naya Sansaar-1959’.

‘Naya Sansaar-1959’ was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for ‘Shri Krishna Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Darshan. It had Jayshree, Pradeep Kumar, Kumari Nanda, Dhumal, Tun Tun, Sundar, Shammi, Majnu, Sheila Vaaz, Sai Subbulakshmi, Kamala Lakshman and others.

This movie had six songs, and all were written by Rajinder Krishan. Music for this movie was composed by Chitragupta.

Lata Mangeshkar, Hemant Kumar, and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

As mentioned above lyrics are Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Chitragupta.


Song-Ik ik pal mein badle zamaana (Naya Zamaana)(1959) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa
aaj nayaa
kal hogaa puraanaa aa
hoga puraanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa

kal ki naar nadi ke paar ki
baat takat thhi saajan ki ee
kal ki naar nadi ke paar ki
baat takat thhi saajan ki ee
aankh mein kajraa
haath mein gajraa
paaon mein jodi jhaanjhan ki
aaj lagey ye baat fasaanaa
ek fasaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa

pyaar ke badle ab to thhikaane
naye tareeke
naye zamaane
kahin pe hotel
kahin pe picnic
kahin pe rock n roll ke gaane
bol naye aur nayaa taraanaa
nayaa taraanaa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa

kal naa jaane is dharti se
chaand pe jaake ae pyaar karen
kal naa jaane is dharti se
chaand pe jaake pyaar karen
saanjh ke jhoole mein dilwaale
ulfat ka iqraar karen
kaisaa hogaa samaa suhaanaa
samaa suhaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa aa
ik ik pal mein badley zamaanaa
