This song is sung by Shamshad Begam and S D Batish. J C Pant is the lyricist. Music is composed by V Balsara.

Song-Khata ho kisi ki kisi ko saza do(Bahu Beti)(1952) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-S D Batish

Lyrics

dil jala yaaden jalin
ek ik tamanna jal gayi
aag ghar mein kya lagi
duniya aa aa ki duniya jal gayi

haaye
khata ho kisi ki
kisi ko saza do
khata ho kisi ki
kisi ko saza do
ye insaaf kaisa hai
itna bata do
khata ho kisi ki

bahaaron ke mausam mein rona pada hai
zara mujhko rona tadapna sikha do
khata ho kisi ki

bahut yaad aayega beeta zamaana
mera kya mujhe tum bhula do bhula do
khata ho kisi ki

basaai thhi kitni muraadon ki duniya
muraadon ki duniya
agar chaahte ho mitaana mita do
khata ho kisi ki

bade qeemti hain mohabbat ke aansu
mohabbat ke aansu
koi jaa ke un par
ye moti luta do
khata ho kisi ki
kisi ko saza do
ye insaaf kaisa hai
itna bata do
khata ho kisi ki

Song-Dil tod bhi diya mukh mod bhi liya(Bahu Beti)(1952) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Vishwamitra Adil, MD-S D Batish

Lyrics

dil tod bhi diya
mukh mod bhi liya
dil tod bhi diya
mukh mod bhi liya
samjha sake na itna

humne kauno kusoor kiya
dil tod bhi diya

tadbeer bhi na samjhi

marne ke din nahin hain
jeena nahin gavaara
ek dard ka maara roye pyaar humaara
mila koi na sahaara haay kya kiya
dil tod bhi diya
mukh mod bhi liya

do dil juda huye hain
ab yaad ro rahi hai
majboor hai wafaayen
fariyaad ro rahi hai
ik dard ka maara roye pyaar humaara
mila koi na sahaara haay kya kiya
dil tod bhi diya
mukh mod bhi liya
dil tod bhi diya
mukh mod bhi liya

Whenever new technoloy is introduced, people feel threatened. But with time, this new technology not only makes life easy and more enriched, it opens up new employment opportunities.

Take movies for example. Initial movies were silent movies. They required technicians as well as actors.

Movies began to speak from 1927, and in India talkies began in 1931. It suddenly opened up new opportunities. Actors who were ony needed to show their face till then, were now required to speak, and sing as well. Suddenly many good looking actors with poor voices found themselves unemploed.

Movies began to speak, which meant they could speak in various languages and so different language movie industries came up. Language related artists, namely dialogue writers, and lyricists became essential for these movies. Since need of songs was felt so music directors and singers were needed.

As one can see, the “simple” advancement in technology opened up new opportunities and that changed the face of movies. Personnel skilled in languages suddenyly found themselves in demand.

Since Hindi movies came into existence in early 1930s, it followed that most artists of talkies were born in and around early 1900s. So, these early pioneers of Hindi movies were born some one hundred years ago. Many of such early pioneers have already completed their birth centenaries.

This blog began on 19 july 2008. Some Hindi movie stalwards who have completed their centuries after than date are Leela Chitnis, K N Singh, K Amarnath, Gope, Kidar Sharma, Jagmohan Sursagar, Gopal Singh Nepali, Khursheed Bano, Bhagwan Dada, Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, Anil Biswas, Lalita Pawar, G P Sippy, Zohrabai Ambalewali, S D Batish, Kishore Sahu, Hansraj Bahl, Bharat Vyas, Shakeel Badayuni, Chitragupta, Kamal Amrohi, Qamar Jalalabadi, Roshan, C Ramchandra etc.

Lots of artists will have their centenaries in the coming years.

The year 2019 has just begun. Birth centenaries of several artists will fall this year.

Today is 14 january 2019. It is the birth centenary of Kaifi Azmi (14 january 1919- 10 may 2002), who was born on this day exactly one hundred years ago. He was born in Azamgarh in Eastern UP which happens to be about 180 km away from the place where I am based at present.

In the past, when I was based in states like MP, Maharashtra and Chhatisgarh, such birth centenary artists appeared to be born “distant” lands, but ever since I arrived in UP in 2015, I find that many of these famous artists, mostly lyricists, were born in nearly places. For instance, Shakeel Badayuni’s birth centenary fell on 2016, and this place Badayun was about 40 km from Izatnagar, Bareilly where I was based at that time. Azamgarh is 180 km away from Gorakhpur. This year will see the birth centenary of Majrooh Sultanpuri, and guess what , Sultanpur is also nearly, some 200 km away. 🙂

Coming to Kaifi Azmi, he was born as Sayyad Akhtar Hussain Rizvi. Like many other persons of literature, he was influenced by communism and Marxism and his literature reflected that. He became a CPI member in 1943 and a member of Progressive Writers movement in 1945.

He was one of the first shaayars to join Hindi movies as a lyricist. His first movie as a lyricist was “Buzdil”(1951) where S D Burman was the music director. He penned three songs in the movie. All these three songs are already covered in the blog.

According to my calculation, Kaifi Azmi penned some 360 songs in 93 movies. His last movie was “Ek Alag Mausam”(2003) whose songs were released after he had already left for the heavenly abode.

Here is the filmography of Kaifi Azmi.

As can be seen from the filmography, Kaifi azmi has penned many memorable songs that need no introduction. For instance, who can forget the songs of “Kaaghaz Ke Phool”(1959), “Haqeeqat”(1964), or the songs of “Kohra”(1964) and “Anupama”(1966). In “Heer Ranjha”(1970), he not only penned the lyrics but also the dialogues, the dialogues being entirely in verse ! One can look at his filmography and recall the songs from those movies.

On the occasion of his birth centenary, here is a song from “Bahu Beti”(1952). This movie was directed by C L Dheer for Badoda Theatre Limited Bombay. This “social” movie had Geeta Bali, Amarnath, Jaswant, Vijaylaxmi, Rashid, Leela Mishra, S Nazeer, Nazirabai etc in it.

This movie had seven songs in it. Six songs were penned by Kaifi azmi and one by Vishwamita Adil. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

The first song from the movie was deleted from the movie because of objections of censors. Those were the days when censors could often by quite sensitive towards matters that are taken in their stride today. The lyrics of the song were considered objectionable by the censors. Just imagine, a song penned by Kaifi Azmi was deleted from the movie because its lyrics were found objectionable !

The song luckily continued to remain in the records.

Just as fortuitously, this song happens to be 200th song of Kaifi Azmi appearing in the blog.

Here is this special song from Kaifi Azmi, on the occasion of his birth centenary. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Music is composed by S D Batish. Since the video of the song is not available, one can only gess about the picturisation. Seeing that Geeta Dutt’s voice appears in six out of seven songs, one can assume that she had sung for Geeta Bali, the lead actress of the movie. By that assumption, it would seem that this song was picturised on Geeta Bali. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye (Bahu Beti)(1952) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-S D Batish

Lyrics

mose chanchal
mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye
mose chanchal
o mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye
koi chupke se aaye
koi man ko lubhaaye
koi aakar jawaani ko sang le jaaye
mose chanchal
mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye

gudgudaati hai tanhaai hardum mujhe
chhedta hai akele mein mausam mujhe
raat sapne dikhaaye
bhor kaanon mein gaaye
thhandi thhandi hawa mora ghoonghat uthhaaye
mose chanchal
o mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye

naachti hain chaman mein hawaayen nayin
seekh lin aaj dil ne aaj adaayen nayi
koi hilmil ke gaaye
koi painge badhaaye
koi majboot baahon mein jhoola jhulaaye
mose chanchal
o mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhaali nahin jaaye

more nainon se masti barasne lagi
ujli ujli si ye maang dasne lagi
koi chunri audhaaye koi jhumar pahnaye
koi ujli si maang mein sindoor lagaaye
mose chanchal
o mose chanchal
mose chanchal jawaani sambhali naheeen jaaaaye

Today’s song is quite a rare song. It is from film Khush Raho-49. This was a C grade stunt film, made by Sushil pictures, Bombay. Directed by Harbans,it had music by Shiv Dayal Batish. I say this is a rare song, for 2 reasons. One- in most cases, producers of stunt films were not interested in making commercial records of songs of their films. Reason – Usually, the composers of such low budget films were also unknown or less known composers. If at all, a well known composer was there, he rarely gave his best shot to stunt film, which attracted a fixed, low class audience. Second – Music or songs were not what attracted the audience of stunt films. So the songs rarely became well known and the records-if brought out at all-did not sell.

Therefore C grade film songs are usually a matter of interest to Collectors. These songs are not even uploaded on sites like U-Tube and that is why such film songs are difficult to be found. Only in extremely rare cases a song from a stunt film is famous and popular. off hand, I can remember one such song , ” Humen to loot liya mil ke husn walon ne” from film Al Hilaal-58. It became famous and had the honour of becoming the 5000 th song on this Blog, with write ups from Raja ji, Sudhir ji and Atul ji, on 13-11-2011. Of course, there could be some more famous songs from stunt films.

The cast of the film Khush Raho-49 was Bhagwan, Baburao (Pehalwan), Vasantrao (Pehalwan), Sarla, Leela Gupte, Ratan Piya and others. In the decade of 40s, the number One stunt film maker, director, producer and actor was undoubtedly Master Bhagwan. Till his first social film ” Albela ” -51 hit the screen and became an Iconic musical film, Bhagwan was into stunt films only.

Famous Film Historian and Author of Marathi, Hindi and English books on old films and artistes, Isak Mujawar ( 22-5-1934 to 26-2-2015 ) has written over 30 books. Mujawar, Master Bhagwan and C Ramchandra were good friends and Mujawar has written about them in his books. He has given first hand information gathered from them. Mujawar has written a book ” Ek Albela ” on Master Bhagwan. Many less known facts and anecdotes about Bhagwan, CR and other artistes are given in this book.

When Bhagwan was directing- and acting in- film Bahadur Kisan-37, he got introduced to CR or Ram Chitalkar,as he was known then.Soon they became thick friends. When Bhagwan got Tamil film ‘ Jaykodi’ to direct in Madras, he took Chitalkar as the Music Director. They did one more film ‘ Van Mohini’ together in Madras and returned to Bombay. Actually Bhagwan had received several offers to direct more films, including one from AVM also, but his brother Shankar Palav came to Madras and forced him to return to Bombay.

Harishchandrarao Kadam, who had floated his own production outfit Harishchandra Pictures, was waiting to offer a Hindi film,” Sukhi Jivan” for Bhagwan to direct. The offer was to act in and direct the film for Rs. 3000 pm salary plus 20% share in the profits of the film. However, the producer wanted to continue with his MD, Naidu for this film too. Naidu was once an assistant to Anil Biswas and Kadam had promissed Anil Biswas to give this film to Naidu. However, Bhagwan flatly refused and said,” only Chitalkar will be the MD or I wont do the film”. Now there was a problem, as both were adamant for their MD. Finally, Anil Biswas came to mediate. Bhagwan told him,” Chitalkar came to Madras with me on my calling and also returned to Bombay with me,though he too had more offers there. Now I can not leave him high and dry. It is with him or no film”

Anil Biswas told the producer, ” OK. you give this film to Chitalkar and next film to Naidu”. The problem was solved and Ram Chitalkar got his first Hindi film ‘ Sukhi Jivan’-42 as an independent MD. He began his career and rose to heights which we all know very well. Harishchandrarao kadam gave film ‘ Watan ki Pukar ‘-43 to Naidu. Like this many interesting anecdotes are described in the book ‘ Ek Albela ‘, about CR and Bhagwan. I intend to weave some stories in my forthcoming posts.

In the cast there is a very romantic name-Ratan Piya. He was born on 5-3-1904 at Lucknow. His father Pt. Madan Mohan was secretary to Motilal Nehru. His father was a theatre lover and so started his own Theatre company at Allahabad. Ratan, after his matriculation started working in it. He was trained to write songs for its dramas. Their company was patronised by the Viceroy, who paid Rs. 20 p.m. as his Patronage !

Ratan debuted as a Lyricist in film Pakke Badmash-1939. For this film, he even wrote an English song. His films as a Lyricist were Zaban-43, Mali-44, Umang-44 Nai Baat-47 and Batohi-48. For sustenance, he even acted in few films like, Shakuntala-43, Umang-44, Meena-44, Mahakavi Kalidas-44, Panna Dai-45, Khush Raho-49, Janam Patrika-49 and Begunah-49. After this Ratan Piya returned to Allahabad to look after their Theatre when his father died.

There were 3 Major Centres for Hindi Film Production in India in the early days. Calcutta,Lahore and Bombay.

From the period of Talkie films, all the 3 centres became very active and many films with lot of songs were produced.Initially,in the Talkie films,even the Dialogues were in poetry type,so it was difficult to demarcate Dialogues and songs separately.Films like Indrasabha-1932 had 71(or 69) songs.Similarly, films from that era had anything between 10-50 songs each.

In the Calcutta centre, film music had a distinct influence of Robindra Sangeet,In the Lahore films,it was Punjabi and folk tunes whereas in the western Bombay centre music was influenced by Marathi stage, Gujarati Dramas and Parsi Theatre. Out of this, Marathi stage music had a pronounced effect on films as many classical Drama artists joined Film industry.As such this music was well developed and its acceptability was taken for granted.

When more films and songs were made in Bombay,there was a need for more singers.The composers were constantly on the lookout for fresh singers.
Prabhat Film Company shifted from Kolhapur to Poona,but there were many connections still left in Kolhapur area.When Prabhat started making the film ” SANT SAKHU ” in 1941,the Music Director Keshav Rao Bhole needed new singers.His assistant that time was a young man from Kolhapur area,named VASANT DESAI. He was entrusted the task of getting new singers. Such Talent Hunters were in Calcutta and Lahore also.

There is a book “The Desai Trio and the movie industry in India” by shri Nilu Gavankar. He describes this episode thus-

Vasant Desai had lot of connections in Kolhapur and Konkan.He had learnt about 2 Desai Sisters of Kolhapur who were very good singers,but he did not know them.He went to Kolhapur and met Mrs.Susheelabai Gavankar,the author’s wife and his family friend.He inquired if she knew these girls.She said, “Yes.Their mother Sharadini Desai is my friend.” They both went to Desai house. Vasant Desai was introduced.There were 2 sisters VINODINI AND PRAMODINI. Vinodini was about 15 yr.old. Vasant Desai proposed that Vinodini sings for a Hindi film. There was a flat refusal as ” girls from good homes do not sing in films”. After a great convincing and a promise of personal protection, it was agreed.

Accordingly, VINODINI sang for her first Hindi film Sant Sakhu in 1941. Later she was given many opportunities to sing in Marathi films, Bhavgeets etc.In 2 years’ time Vinodini got married to Music Director PANDURANG DIKSHIT and became Vinodini Dikshit. She was actually more into classical singing and devoted time in that, so she sang only 15 songs in Hindi films like Sant Sakhu-41, Gwalan -46, Lakhon mein ek-47, Poojya Gandhi ji-48, Sati Narmada-50 and Bhagwan Shrikrishna-50. She gave stage shows for classical singing and was actively involved in Kalyan Gayan Vidyalaya near Bombay.

Her younger sister Pramodini followed suit and started singing in Hindi films, starting with Khush Raho-49. She sang in more films than her sister, 27 songs in 13 films. Her other films include Raaz-49, Dilruba-50 Shokhiyan-51, Kashmir-51, Nand Kishore-51, Sazaa-51 Char chand-53, Fariyadi-53, One two Three-53, Gunah-53, Naulakha Haar-53 and Pehli Tarikh-54 . Later she got married to Ashok Patkar and settled in Bombay as a Housewife.

Today’s song is sung by Promodini Desai and Balbir. There were 9 songs in the film and 6 of them were sung by her. 3 solos and 3 duets. There were also 2 solos of Balbir in it. Except for today’s song, I could not get any other song from this film. So let us enjoy this rare song. With this song film Khush Raho -49 makes its debut in the Blog.

Lyrics

mohabbat ka khat dil lagaana nahin hai
mohabbat ka khat dil lagaana nahin hai
mohabbat do aansu bahaana nahin hai
mohabbat hai geeton bhara wo fasaana
jise gaaye lekin na samjhe zamaana
na samjhe zamaana
mohabbat ka naghma hai

gulon se mohabbat to bulbul jataaye
gulon se mohabbat to bulbul jataaye
maza jab hai kaanton ko dil se lagaaye
bada hi kathin hai mohabbat ka gaana
jise gaaye lekin na samjhe zamaana
na samjhe zamaana
mohabbat ka naghma hai

mohabbat ko samjha to parwaana samjha
mohabbat ko samjha to parwaana samjha
ke jalne ko ye zindagi paana samjha
ye nanhi si jaan ga gayi wo taraana
jise gaaye lekin na samjhe zamaana
na samjhe zamaana
mohabbat ka naghma hai

“Reet”(1946) was an extremely obscure movie. Very little is known about this movie. It was directed by Najmistan Film Producers. Names of artists of the movie are not known. HFGK mentions descriptions of seven songs leaving spaces for more indicating that the movie perpahs had more songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Reet”(1946) to appear in the blog. Zeenat Begam is the singer. Music is composed by S D Batish. That is all that is known about the song.

Uploader of the song describes it to be a movie of 1946 and so I have taken it as a movie of 1946. HFGK mentions it as a movie of 1940s and so mentions this movie in the appendix of HFGK part II.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie.

With this obscure song, “Reet”(1946) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Guzarti hai jo haay kaise bataayen (Reet)(1946) Singer-Zeenat Begam, MD-S D Batish

Lyrics

Guzarti hai jo haay
kaise bataayen
guzarti hai jo haay
kaise bataayen
ye aansoo ye aahen aen aen aen aen
kahaan tak chhupaayen
kahaan tak chhupaayen
guzarti hai jo haay
kaise bataayen

jawaani ke rangeen khwaabon se keh do
jawaani ke rangeen khwaabon se keh do
kabhi khwaab mein bhi na aayen na aayen
guzarti hai jo haay
kaise bataayen

khabar(?) lo kahaan ho
o o o o
zamaana hai dushman
zamaana hai dushman
kahin ghut ke armaan yoon hi mar na jaayen
guzarti hai jo haay
kaise bataayen

na bhoole se mujhko
kiya yaad lekin
na bhoole se mujhko
kiya yaad lekin
bahut yaad aayengin meri wafaayen
guzarti hai jo haay
kaise bataayen

koi thhaam kar dil ko o o
itna bata de
itna bata de
ke jo bas gaya dil mein
kaise bhulaayen
guzarti hai jo haay
kaise bataayen

Here is the sixth song from “Dushman”(1957) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and S D Batish. Tanveer Naqvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Kumkum, with some musicians playing musical instruments. The bearded musician playing table (who I think could be Dev Anand in disguise) lip syncs a few lines in S D Batish’s voice.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors visible in the picturisation.

With this song, “Dushman” (1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. Seeing that “Dushman” (1939) and “Dushman” (1971) are already YIPPEED, one can say that all the three movies titled “Dushman” are now YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Dhokha na khaana teekhe hain nainwa ke baan (Dushman)(1957) Asha Bhonsle, S D Batish, Lyrics- Tanveer Naqvi, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

teekhe hain nainwa ke baan ji
dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan ji
dhokha na khaana
zulfon ke naag hain zehri
phaile hain jaal sunahri
jaan ke rehna na anjaan
dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan ji
dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
chamak rahi hai meri shokhiyon mein shamsheeren
chhanak rahi hai meri paayalon mein zanjeeren
palken hain tej kataaren
nazren chalti talwaaren
bachna nahin hai aasaan
dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan
dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
apne kabze mein aaj hai taqdeeer
toot kar gir padegi har zanjeer
darte hain kab dil waale
hans hans ke baan chala le
ye bhi tera hai ehsaan

dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan ji
dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
mehfil mein ab naya hi nazaara hai dekhna
meri har ik adaa mein ishaara hai dekhna
kehti hoon bach ke rehna
dekho ji phir na kehna
duniya badi hai beimaan
dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan ji
dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan

ji dhokha na khaana
teekhe hain nainwa ke baan
