Today’s song is from the film ‘Aadhaar’ (1945).

This film was made by Geeta Pictures, Bombay. It was directed by Ramanlal Desai and this social film had music by SN Tripathi. The lyricist was MA Razi and the film cast was Umakant, Kokila, Yaqub, Shehzadi, Firoza, Ramesh, Usha , Ahmed and many others.

When film making started in India with silent films in the first decade of the last century, the filmmakers faced an unexpected difficulty. The difficulty was in getting actresses for films. No women were ready to act in the films, as it was considered a very low level profession. Dadasaheb Phalke wrote in his reminiscences how he tried to invite even prostitutes to work in the films and how even they refused saying it was a lower job than even being a prostitute !

Sensing an opportunity in this field, many European, Anglo-Indian and Jew girls joined films as actresses. Since the films were silent, their zero knowledge of Hindi or any regional language was not an obstacle. The dialogues were shown as strips of typed sentences on the screen. The girls also had no objection to giving romantic scenes or even kissing on the screen. Some actresses in those days were Ruby Meyers (Sulochana), Marcia Solomon (Vimla), Rachel Sofaer (Aarti Devi), Miss Rose, Iris Gasper (Sabita Devi), Susan Solomon (Firoza), Effie Hippolet (Indira Devi), Bonnie Bird (Lalita Devi), Esther Abraham (Pramila), Renee Smith (Seeta), Beryl Classen (Madhuri), Winnie Stewart (Manorama), Florence Ezekiel (Nadira), Muriel Alexander (Meera) and many others.

In the second part of the second decade i.e. from 1915 onward, some Indian girls from tawaif families also joined and as a result the count of ‘white skin’ girls started diminishing. After the advent of talkie films, speaking Hindi and singing – if needed, became a requirement for the actresses and automatically the Jew, Anglo-Indian and the European girls disappeared from films. Only a few, who learnt Hindi and singing, survived for a few more years, like Sabita Devi, Meera, Pramila, Sulochana, Madhuri and Firoza etc. Those who left early had no problem, but those who continued had to face the competition with the newer and younger local artistes and one by one they too ended their careers. However, not all ended happily. There was one Jew actress whose life in the last part of her career ended pathetically, in penury and she died unsung. We all know of such ends of many actors like Master Shiraz, Master Nissar, Bhudo Advani etc., but the sad story of the once famous actress is not known much. She acted in this film and her name was FIROZA.

Firoza (real name Susan Solomon) was born in a village in Konkan, Maharashtra on 30-7-1905, into a Bene Isareli Jew community. By the time she finished her education, she was proficient in Hebrew, Marathi, Hindi and English. In spite of opposition from family, she started working in silent films and soon became popular. Some of her films also became famous and hits. She continued working in silent films till 1934, when silent films stopped being made. Due to the family’s opposition, she had to leave her house. She stayed in Bombay.

With the advent of talkie films, she naturally entered talkie films, with ‘Noor E Yaman’ (1935), in a small role. She acted in films like ‘Bhikaran’ (1935), ‘Aansuon Ki Duniya’ (1936), ‘Bharat Ke Laal’ (1936), ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ (1937), ‘Dukhiyari’ (1937), ‘Veerbala’ (1938) etc. Due to her success in films, she fell a prey to false promises and dreamt of working in Hollywood films. She wasted 3 years in this and dejected, started working in films again here with ‘Ek Raat’ (1942), ‘Circus Girl’ (1943), ‘Duniya Diwaani’ (1943), ‘Bhagta Bhoot’ (1943), ‘Andhi Duniya’ (1943), ‘Din Raat’ (1945), ‘Aadhaar’ (1945), ‘Lal Batti’ (1947), ‘Daulat Ke Liye’ (1947), ‘Haatimtai’ (1947), ‘Dilwaale’ (1948) etc.

She became an alcoholic and a chain smoker. She made the mistake of refusing offers from Bombay Talkies and other big banners. Meanwhile she fell in love with actor Chandra Mohan and wished to marry him, but he became a drunkard and died in 1949. Her financial condition became worse. She did small roles in Marathi and Hindi films. ‘Yasmeen’ (1954) was her last film.

She lost her parents and lived alone in a single room, where she died unnoticed one day in early 70s. She was one of the top 5 Jew actresses, included in the Documentary ‘Shalom Bollywood’ made by Danny Ben-Moshe in 2003. Thus ended a talented artiste !.
[Note – There was another Firoza Begum, wife of music director Kamal Dasgupta. She is different. She was a Bangladeshi singer.]

[Ack: Information culled from ‘Beete Kal Ke Sitare’ by S Tamrakar, ‘The Untold Story of Jews in Indian Cinema’ in Sunday Guardian, ‘Women in Hindi Cinema’ by Bhavna, Jigna and Supriya, theoneminute.com and my notes.]

The lead pair of the film ‘Aadhaar’ was Umakant (Desai) and Kokila. Despite my efforts I could not get any information on this actress. First I thought that she is Nirupa Roy, because the real name of Nirupa Roy was Kokila. But this Kokila has been in films since 1937 when Nirupa Roy was only a 6 year old girl. First film of this Kokila was ‘Meri Bhool’ (1937). She also acted in films like ‘Gentleman Daku’ (1937), ‘Dukhiyari’ (1937) in which she sang 1 song also, ‘Prem Sagar’ (1939), ‘Gareeb Ka Laal’ (1939), ‘Wayda’ (1940), ‘Jagat Mohini’ (1940), ‘Meri Khwahish’ (1941). ‘Aadhaar’ seems to be her last film. She appeared like a flash and disappeared like a comet !

Let us know something about the director Ramanlal Desai. There were 2 directors in the film industry- Ramanlal (Lalbhai) Desai and Ramanlal (Bhimbhai) Desai. Both operated in almost the same period. Luckily Ramanlal Bhimbhai Desai was known as ‘The King of Mythologicals’ and the other Desai directed all types of films. Ramanlal Lalbhai Desai was born on 6-9-1915 at Ahmedabad (some sources indicate different year and place). His father was a station master in the BBCI Railway (Bombay-Baroda and Central India Railway). He was educated in Bombay and he studied up to Inter-Arts. He soon left his studies to work as an assistant cameraman and assistant director for ‘Thief of Baghdad’ (1934). In 1935 he shifted to Ganesh Movietone but then came back to Paramount. He was assistant director in ‘Fairy of the Flute’, ‘Guru Ghantal’, ‘Black Ghost’, ‘Burqawali’, ‘Aladdin’, ‘Vagabond Lover’, ‘Madhur Bansari’ etc. He co-directed films like ‘Patriot’, ‘Darpan’ and ‘Mere Saajan’, in Rex Pictures. He was a good editor and a musician.

He became a full fledged director with ‘Daughter of the Jungle’ (1942), ‘Muhabbat Ki Jeet’ (1943), ‘Circus Girl’ (1943), ‘Bhagta Bhoot’ (1943), ‘Rangeela Dost’ (1944), ‘Aadhar’ (1945), ‘Kismat Ka Dhani’ (1946), ‘Jadui Putli’ (1946), ‘Tiger Man’ (1947), ‘Naqali Heera’ (1948), ‘Dhanwale’ (1948), ‘Dilwale’ (1948), ‘Roshni’ (1949), ‘Sangeeta’ (1950), ‘Aab e Hayaat’ (1955), ‘Hum Bhi Kuchh Kam Nahin’ (1958), ‘Minister’ (1959) and ‘Zalim Tera Jawab Nahin’ (1960). He turned to Gujarati films and directed ‘Sole Saaj Singar’ (1977) and ‘Kul Deepak’ (1978). He was working as a Production Supervisor for the film ‘Nastik’ (1954) (credited).

[Thanks to Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for allowing me to use some info used here].

Film ‘Aadhar’ was unique, because it featured 4 artistes falling in the category of ‘same name confusion’ – namely, Ramanlal Desai, Shehzadi, Firoza and Kokila. Today’s song is a duet sung by Geeta Dutt and SN Tripathi – the MD himself.

This article is the 17100th song post in the blog.
This post also includes the 1500th Hindi lyrics contribution by Sudhir ji.

Blog Day :

5140 Post No. : 17100

We in this blog regularly publish song posts everyday without a fail. The last date when no post appeared in the blog was 25 December 2019 (Blog day number 4177). Today (14 August 2022) is the 5140th day for the blog. So there has been no DOT day for the blog during last 973 days !

When we are this regular, then song posts add up and before we realize, we arrive at the next century mark. The previous century mark was a big occasion when we reached a round figure of 17000 song posts.

Nowadays only one or two songs posts appear in a day whereas more than six songs used to appear daily in the blog ten years ago, as we have been noticing while discussing songs under our Blog Ten Year Challenge series. Even then we reach our centuries fairly regularly. The 17000th song post appeared on 2 June 2022. Today, on 14 august 2022, that is 63 days later, we arrive at the next century song post, namely song post number 17100 !

This is a century song post with some difference. It is the first century post for the blog after the blog became ASAD Bhopali. In other words, it is the first century post after I superannuated from my Railway service and settled down at Bhopal. If I or others thought that the pace of the blog will pick up, that has not happened. In any case, we nowadays are not much concerned about the pace at which we are going. We just ensure that no day should be a DOT date.

The century post is always a special post that showcases a song that is special in one way or the other. All the 170 century songs (yes we have had that many century posts in the blog) have been very special songs. Assuming each of these song to be 3 minutes long, listening to all these songs non stop will require 510 minutes, viz 8 hours 30 minutes ! Assuming someone sets out to listen to all the 17100 songs at the same rate of 3 minutes per song, he will need 51300 minutes, which is 855 hours viz nearly 36 days (non stop round the clock) worth of music !

Regulars have actually listened to all these songs. I, who has published bulk of these song posts have actually listened to all these songs multiple times !

So one can have some rough idea of how much time has gone into the effort of bringing all this collection together at one place. And this is by now an online collaboration of nearly two dozen like minded music lovers who have been putting on enormous amount of time and effort and love into this ongoing online project of collecting and piecing together authentic information about the glorious history of Hindi movie music.

As a result of our collective effort, we have showcased songs from over 4600 movies. More than 1000 singers, more than 800 lyricists and more than 500 music directors are already represented in the blog. 1329 movies have already been YIPPEEE’D.

The above figures may not look very impressive to the uninitiated, but the initiated persons will know that this is perhaps the only place online where all this information is available at one place. For instance, many of the YIPPEEE’D movies had songs that are rare songs. Those missing songs have been specially located and uploaded by us (more specifically by Sudhir Ji). Similarly a few of the special songs (including century songs) were special songs that were uploaded for the first time online while those special posts were published.

During the process of our posts, We found songs that were incorrectly credited in HFGK. we have come across songs that did not find mention in HFGK. We also had occasions when new information about songs and artists were received from comments made by knowledgeable sources. Sometimes even close relatives of the artists commented on our posts and shared invaluable information with us.

All the above facts are extremely satisfying to us who are associated with the blog in various capacities. We feel that we in our own small ways, are contributing our mite to human knowledge . With time, our contribution may find more appreciation, I am sure of it.

I started thinking about a song for the occasion only at the last moment which is my wont these days. I finally zeroed in on this song from ‘Nav Durga’ (1953).

‘Nav Durga’ was produced by Homi Wadia and directed by Babubhai Mistri for Basant Pictures Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Mahipal, SN Tripathi, Sulochana Chatterji, Amarnath, Agha Shapur, Raja Sandow etc. in it. The movie had nine songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the blog so far.

The song being discussed is sung by two sisters. We have hundreds of songs sung by Mangeshkar sisters, but there were other sisters too in HFM. But duets sung by these sisters are few and far between. Suman Kalyanpur (nee Hemadi) has sung a few duets with her sisters, such as Shyama Chittar (nee Hemadi). Geeta Dutt too had a sister called Laxmi Roy, but her sister sang very few songs before vanishing from the HFM after her marriage.

The song under discussion is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy) and Laxmi Roy. Ramesh Chandra Pandey is the lyricist. Music is composed by SN Tripathi. This is a joyous song. Geeta Dutt sings initial stanzas. Laxmi Roy’s voice appears towards the later half of the song.

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

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement that is providing us with the energy to drive this musical bandwagon on and on. Let this musical bandwagon roll on and on for many more centuries of songs.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from a stunt film Ji Haan aka Yes please – 1945.

This film was made under the banner of Gautam Chitra, Bombay. It was directed by a pair of Babubhai Mistry and Ramnik Bhatt. All the 8 songs were written by Pt. Indra and the music was by S.N.Tripathi…who was initially for stunt films and later was famous for Mythological movies. The cast consisted of Agha, Bhagwan,Shanta Patel, Meera, Gulab, Raziya,Azeembhai, Anant Prabhu etc etc.

Based on the major chunk of films made, the first 3 decades of talkie films can be easily named accordingly. For example, the 1930’s decade was the “experimental Decade’ because being a new medium, the filmmakers had no idea as to which type of films would attract the audience. Hence there was a mix of all Genres like Historical, Mythological, Folk stories, stunts, family and what not. The 1950’s decade can decisively be called a ” Mythological and Religious films decade” as 124 such films were made in this period. And the 1940’s decade can be said to be a Gold mine for B and C grade action/stunt and costume films. The contribution of Master Bhagwan in this Genre is incomparable to any other filmmaker in the first 30 years of Talkie era. He was not the ‘ initiator’ but surely a ‘developer’ of action films.

An American -Mike Barnum – runs 2 Blogs on B and C grade Hindi action/stunt films of India. Don’t be surprised. There are a few more foreigners who have extraordinary interest in Indian cinema of the yore and they have their own Blogs. One more example is ” memsaabstory.com’n run by Greta Kemmer. Then there is Tom Daniels too. Mike Barnum writes about Master Bhagwan thus…

” Known to his fans as a comedic sidekick in countless Bollywood films of the Golden Era, Bhagwan (Bhagwan Abaji Palav)played the lead and sometimes also directed numerous B grade comedy-action films throughout the 40’s and the 50’s decade. Bhagwaqn often worked opposite former wrestler Baburao pehelwan. With Bhagwan’s short, stubby stature and Baburao’s handsome physique, they made a popular pair.

Bhagwan entered films during the silent era. After a few years, doing bit parts and supporting roles, he tried his hand at Directing with the 1938 stunt film Bahadur Kissan, starring popular action star Chandrarao. Bhagwan co starred in the film with Hansa Wadkar, Sunetra and Vasantrao pahelwan-another former wrestler who was often seen in his films.

Bahadur kissan-38 was quickly followed by Criminal-39, Vanmohini-40 and Raja Gopichand-41 in which the comedian again acted and directed. Bhagwan’s comedy-stunt film combination became quite popular, but is little remembered today, mostly due to the fact that no prints seem to have survived.

Along with the stunt genre, Bhagwan took his brand of comedy and incorporated Horror in House of Mystery(Bhedi Bangla)-49 and spoofed Tarzan pictures with The Jungle man-50. While the masses enjoyed these little B films, it was not until Albela in 1951 that Bhagwan managed to impress the critics. This little musical comedy (produced under his banner-Bhagwan Art productions) also starred Geeta Bali and Baburao Pehelwan and it struck gold at the box office. Bhagwan tried to duplicate Albela’s success with rangeela and Jhamela-51, but both films flopped.

Sadly, of Bhagwan’s dozens of starring roles, only Albela and the comedy Damaad are currently available to see. Thankfully we can at least enjoy the ads and posters from many of his lost or missing films….. and who knows someday a few of these old classics will be unearthed for all to see ! Some of his films were madadgar, Pyar ki raat, Bahadur kissan, criminal, vanamohini, raja gopichand, Rooplekha, Achhajee, Bhedi bangla, Jungle man, Albela, damaad, Actor, Bhole piya, Joker, Bhoole bhatke, Dushmani, Daughter of the Sea, gunehgar, Sukhi jeevan, Badla, Nagma e sahra, Ji haan, Dosti, Shake hands, matwale, laalach, jalan, Jigar and others. “

Master Bhagwan was unique. He was a very hard working person. In the real sense, he brought in the wave of stunt films in the late 40s. After the films of Master Vithal and Fearless Nadia waned in their popularity by 1944-45, it was Master Bhagwan, who established his own Production house-Jagriti Films and produced several stunt films. he had a set of actors and actresses, which included Baburao pehelwan, Vasantrao pehelwan, Azeem Bhai, Shanta Patel, Chanchal, Leela Gupte, Usha Shukla and Vitha Lokare.

The storyline for most of his films was also fixed. Two young vagabonds-Baburao pehelwan and Bhagwan, come to Bombay in search of employment. One Sethji (Azeembhai ) appoints them to protect him from the local criminal (Vasantrao pehelwan). Sethji has a good looking daughter ( one of the stock Heroines), who has a maid (another girl from the stock). Baburao loves Seth ji’s daughter and Bhagwan loves the maid. After a lot of stunts and fighting scenes, the end would be happy. The same story with changed names and other minor changes was used in almost all his films like Badla, Bahadur, Jalan, Madadgaar, Dosti, Shake hand, Matlabi,Bach ke rehna,Bhole bhale, Jeete Raho or such other films. The audience did not mind . They were happy with the stunts. (Did Nasir Hussain and Manmohan Desai get inspiration from Bhagwan in this matter ?).

There was a time when most Indian heroes of the 60’s and the 70’s were great fans of Bhagwan’s action films. Examples are Kishore kumar and Sanjeev kumar. Actor Shyam was his good friend C.Ramchandra, Raj kapoor, P L Santoshi, Shashdhar Mukherjee and many others were his fans. I can not be counted among these famous ones, but I and Greta memsaab simply love Bhagwan’s action films.

Today I am presenting a fun song from the film Ji Haan-45. Out of 8 songs of the film, 5 were comedy songs. One comedy song is already discussed on this Blog. This will be the second song. Let us now enjoy this song.

09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05 April 2020

Only one song from the movie is left to be covered.

Here is that final song from the movie. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

The song is picturised on Nirupa Roy playing a bride and getting married to the wrong groom. She would not point this out to her elders, rather she would make the most of this opportunity to sing a melancholic song. Singing a melancholic song,(when wronged by fate) was considered the ultimate act of Bhartiya Nari in Hindi movies of those days. Nirupa Roy was one of the leading Bhartiya Naaris of those days. subsequently she graduated to the role of the ultimate Hindi movie maa. 🙂

Amar is also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the nine songs of “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) get covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 53
————————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago viz 16thJune’2012 saw five songs getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Yoon na reh reh kar hamen tarsaaiye Master Madan (NFS)(1935) N/A
Ye khaamoshiyaan ye samaa Samrat(1954) All songs covered
Kajra na dekhe gajra na dekhe Suhaag Sindoor(1961) All songs covered
Tu hai ya nahin bhagwaan Janam Janam Ke Phere(1957) 7 of 9 songs covered
Le le dard paraaya kar de door gham ka saaya Chhote Baabu(1957) All songs covered

We can see that five songs were posted on this date ten years ago. One song was a non film song (NFS) and remaining four songs were from four different movies.

The movies represented were ‘Samrat-1954’, ‘Suhaag Sindoor-1961’, ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ and ‘Chhote Babu-1957’. Out of these four movies three movies have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Janam Janam Ke Phere(1957) is the only unYIPPEED movie from that day.

I had watched this movie during my childhood. I do not have not reecollection of the movie. But, the title of the movie and its most popular song, viz ‘zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye’ is permanently ethed in the Read Only Memory (ROM) of my mind.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ (alias ‘Sati Annapurna) was directed by Manoo Desai for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai.

Manoo Desai also wrote this movie and editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar.

(This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.1957.)

This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Krishnakumari, S.N. Tripathi, Amar Pande, Amirbai Karnataki, Satish Vyas, Malay Sarkar, Kantakumari, Champaklal, Santosh Kunwar, and others.

Mahipal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had nine songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by S.N. Tripathi. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey had given their voice to the songs in this movie.

The movie had the following songs in it:-

09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05.04.2020

From the above table we can see that this movie had made its debut on the blog on 25.12.2008. The movie has already lasted for over thirteen years on the blog without being YIPPEED. 🙂

Today we present the eighth and penultimate song from this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Nirupa Roy lip-syncs on screen. Manhar Desai and B.M. Vyas are also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics for the song were sent by Prakashchandra.

The video link of this song has three stanzas; however the audio link has only two stanzas.

Let us now enjoy today’s beautiful composition …

Here is the seventh and final song from “Nadirshah” (1968) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

The video is not clear. The song is picturised as a mujra dance song in a raj darbaar. The video is not clear. The dancer performing on the song appears to be Mumtaz to me. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics as applicable.

With this song, all the seven songs of the movie have been covered in the blog. With this, “Nadirshah”(1968) joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

“Nadirshah”(1968) was produced and directed by S N Tripathi. The movie had Feroz Khan, Naaz, Sheikh Mukhtar, Murad, Minoo, Mumtaz, Hiralal etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five sons from the movie have been covered in the past. The movie made its debut on the blog on 1 november 2011 with thissong. After a gap of 15 months, four more songs from the movie were discussed in february 2013. More than nine years have passed since.

Here is the sixth song from “Nadirshah”(1968) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

My guess is that this “Remonstrating with the Almighty” genre of song is picturised on Naaz. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to help confirm/ refute my identifation of the artist.

Blog Day :

4991 Post No. : 16885

Today (18 march 2022), the blog had two guest posts so far, and both pertained to Holi. That created some confusion in my mind. I was under the impression that Holika dahan is on the night of 18/19 march and Holi is on 19 march 2022. To add to my confusion, I found out that Railway HQ in Southern Railway, Chennai was open today on 18 march 2022. It turns out that I was out of phase by one day from others. It turns out that even Chennai celebrates holiday today. It is only Southern Railway HQ in Chennai that has decided to work on this day. 🙂

When one looks at the festival category (on the right side of the blog), one finds that the blog has as many as 67 Holi related songs. The second most popular festival is Deepaawali (38 songs) and then Rakhi (24 songs). Looking at the nature of the festivals, it is not very difficult to guess why Holi is the most popular festival for Hind movie makers. It gives then a genuine reason to indulge in a song and dance sequence full of box office hit ingredients, viz color, revelry, two genders dancing together and getting wet thanks to coloured water sprinkled on them from pichkaari.

Even in real life, this festival is popular for similar reasons. And it is popular among trouble makers as well.

On this day, trains remain empty. It is so unlike the occasion of Deepaawali when trains run to full capacity and you cannot have berths in trains. I, not averse to act diferent from the masses, had once (nearly four decades ago)travelled by train on the day of Holi from Jamalpur to Patna and then from Patna to Ranchi. On normal days entering the train itself was a tall order. But on that day, I was perhaps the only occupant of those trains.

With 67 Holi songs under the belt of the blog, some people may feel that we have run out of Holi songs to cover. Nothing can be farther from the truth. There are still lots and lots of Holi songs that are not yet covered in the blog. I have already mentioned it earlier that HOli is the most popular festival among movie makers, and so Holi related songs keep appearing in Hindi movies even today. This genre of song is unlikely to go out of fashion in Hindi movies.

Prakashchandra himself has singlehandedly sent me dozens of Holi realted songs. Moreover, I have discovered some more Holi songs on my own. All these supply of Holi songs will last us for many Holi festivals. 🙂

The Holi song that accompanies this post is from “Banjaarin”(1960). This movie was produced and directed by Ratan KUmar for Ratan Produced by Ratan Kumar for Ratan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini (Debutant), Lalita Kumari, Sunder, Indira Bansal, Chetan Kumar, Shree Bhagwan, Dalpat (in triple role), T.N.Sinha, Bagla, Murari, Prayag Dutt, Hari, Kapoor, Polson, Master Papoo, Bela, Paro, Laxminarayan, Rehana, Geeta, Meera etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Banjaarin”(1960). This song is sung by Rafi, Shamshad Begam and chorus. Pt Madhur is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pardesi (or Pardeshi).

The song is picturised as a Holi festivity song on Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini, Lalita Kumari Sinha, Indira Bansal etc.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a (somewhat belated) happy and safe Holi.

Remarks:- It was pointed out by Mr Partha Chanda, our regular visitor with a keen eyae that the same song was discussed under “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) on 5 april 2020. On checking up, that indeed turned out to be the case. On further investigation, it turned out that the song was originally intended for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957), but it could not be accomodated there. Finally this song was included in “Banjaarin”(1960) which had more or less the same starcast as “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(19557) with some changes.

I thank Nahm, our regular contributor, for pointing out this fact. Since this song was composed for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) so its lyricist is Bharat Vyas and music director is S N Tripathi, unlike other songs of “Banjaarin”(1960) where Pt Madhur is the lyricist and Pardesi is the music director.

I have now replaced the earlier post of 5 april 2020 containing the same song by another Rafi Shamshad Begam duet and penned by the same lyricist (Bharat Vyas).

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from a ‘1957’ movie namely ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’.

I have mentioned it in my earlier articles that I had the good fortune of being able to watch many black and white movies in my childhood. Recalling those days is a source of great nostalgia for me. ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ is one of those black and white classics that I watched in one of the weekly screening of movies at our colony club where we resided.

Yesterday I was browsing the blog looking for songs composed by S.N. Tripathi. That is when I came across this movie. I was surprised to note that this movie is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Three songs from the movie are still not covered on the blog.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ (alias ‘Sati Annapurna) was directed by Manoo Desai for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai.

Manoo Desai also wrote this movie and editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar.

(This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.1957.)

This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Krishnakumari, S.N. Tripathi, Amar Pande, Amirbai Karnataki, Satish Vyas, Malay Sarkar, Kantakumari, Champaklal, Santosh Kunwar, and others.

Mahipal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had nine songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by S.N. Tripathi. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The list of the songs from this movie is as given below (the earlier posts on the blog do not give this list hence I am giving those details in this post)

Sr.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Janam janam ke phere …saanjh savere sabko ghere, inse na koyi bache re Rafi, chorus 16.02.2013
02 Tu hai ya nahin bhagwan… kabhi hota bharosa kabhi hota bharam Lata, Rafi, Manna Dey 16.06.2012
03 Bhadak uthhi hai…aaja naag tohe man mein basaa loon Lata Mangeshkar 04.01.2020
04 Chaahe raat barsaat ho… raah se dharam ki hataanewaala kaun Lata Mangeshkar
05 Man ka andhiyaaraa… tan ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar boley Manna Dey 03.06.2012
06 Rang birangi phoolon ki jhoomein re daaliyaan… kaali kaali ankhiyon ki chhalke re Pyaaliyaan Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, chorus Being presented today
07 Aatma ki ye … zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar 25.12.2008
08 Baaj rahi shehnaayi dekho baaj rahi shenaayi Lata Mangeshkar
09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05.04.2020

From the above table we can see that this movie had made its debut on the blog on 25.12.2008. The next two songs from this movie were discussed in the year ‘2012’, one song was discussed in ‘2013’. After a long gap, two more songs from this movie were discussed in the year ‘2020’. That is how six songs from this movie have been discussed in a span of 14 years.

T most popular song from this movie was ‘zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye’ and this is also the song permanently associated with this movie’s name in my mind. Other songs of the movie fail to bring similar recollections, though I may have listened to them.

Today 14th March’2022 is the one hundred and nineth birth anniversary of S.N. Tripathi or Shri Nath Tripathi (14 March 1913 – 28 March 1988), the music director of this movie.

S.N. Tripathi also an actor, as well as producer and director of several movies.

Today as a tribute on his birth anniversary I am presenting a song from this movie “Janam Janam Ke Phere”.

Today’s song is sung by Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey. On the screen it is Manhar Desai lip-syncing in Manna Dey’s voice. I guess that the actress lip-syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice is Krishnakumari. Several other woman artists are also present in the picturisation and they lip sync in the voice of the chorus.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs in this movie.

Let us enjoy today’s beautiful composition now …

aa aa aa aa

aisi pyaari duniya ko
chhod kahaan chalaa re
rangbirange phoolon ki
jhoomein re daaliyaan

aa aaha aa

haan jeewan hai kaagaz ka tukda
boond pade ghul jaataa
maati ka tan sun mere man
maati mein mil jaataa aa aa
maati mein mil jaataa
rang birange phoolon ko pooja mein daalke
kaali kaali ankhiyon ka deepak ujaar ke
raadha sang kaanha ka raas jahaan
chalaa re
is jhhoothhi duniya ko chhod wahaan chalaa re

rangbirange phoolon ki
jhoomein re daaliyaan

aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa

jaaoge to jaa naa sakoge
bairaagi chori chori ee
baahon ka bandhan
palkon ka pehraa
chitwan ki hogi dori ee
cham cham cham cham chamke re
kaanon mein baaliyaan
jagamag jagmag damke re
man mein diwaaliyaan
tu pyaare ?? tod kahaan chalaa re
aisi pyaari duniya ko
chhod kahaan chalaa re
rangbirange phoolon ki
jhoome re daaliyaan

chhak chhak piyun main to
raam ras pyaaliyaan
shyam ke bhajan mein
bajaaun main to taaliyaan
raadha sang kaanha ka raas jahaan
chalaa re
is jhhoothhi duniya ko chhod wahaan chalaa re

rangbirange phoolon ki
jhoomein re daaliyaan
kaali kaali ankhiyon ki

tu kyun ye kaantaa ?
todke chalaa re ?
aisi pyaari duniya ko
chhod kahaan chalaa re
