Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The heart must have missed a beat – on reading the title of this post. Goodness. . . this wonderful iconic song, 65 years ago – it captured the imagination and the hearts of a generation, nay, many a generation of young hearts in love. This unforgettable song is imprinted on the sands of memory, never to be erased by any winds that may blow, till the end of life.

The golden age of melody was at its peak. The manner in which Shailendra knit together the words and lines of this love song – cannot be and has not been bettered since. The melody and the orchestration conceived by Shanker Jaikishan – the arrangement of the instruments, the preludes, the interludes, the rhythm – everything just perfect in this song. The renditions – Manna Da and Lata – the voices working together seamlessly – rising and falling in unison, and in apposition, complementing, merging – the “aa haa haa” lines going up all the way to the clouds. The lines

pyaar jo toota
saath jo chhoota

receding into the depths of somber apprehensions, and then suddenly a rising declaration of a resolution,

chaand na chamkega kabhi

the rendition volume going up all the way to the moon. The resolve expressed with such a dignified confidence in the nature’s machinations. The moon – no it will never stop shining, and thus, by implication, this love will never be broken, this companionship will never part. And suddenly, instinctively, unknowingly there is a lump in the throat and a warm moisture on the corners of the eyelids. Yes, yes – that is what love is – the poet, the music-waala, the singers – yes, they have got it just right, on the dot. Yes that is what love is, what it ought to be. Such noble souls lived in that golden era – who could feel it right, and conjure up an imagination, combining the words, the music and the sound – and then tell it to us so simply – that no further discourse would be necessary.

I am reminded of another quintessential song from the same film –

ramaiya vasta vaiya
maine dil tujhko diya

And once again, the simplest of words, the simplest verse one can conjure up – and there is no better way, no better words invented, before or since, to say – I love you.

And the scene, the depiction – the conceptualization – a master presenter is at work here. Here is an emotional entanglement coming to fruition in the hearts of two young people, almost at the very bottom of the ladder of social significance. A part time employee at a laundry, who has “borrowed” a suit that has come for cleaning, and his shoes are in tatters. A self employed teacher, who gives basic education to the underprivileged children in the backyard of her own home. But then love does not check on social status, or verify your bank balances, before making a burrow into the hearts. That love is simple. That love is without embellishments. That love is honest and innocent. That simply is love, and it happens, just happens.

The overcast skies, the lashing rains, the amused witness – the chaiwaala (tea seller), the incidental umbrella, the handy tootle that the young man plays, the happenstance of three cheruby toddlers in raincoats – all put together in a scenario that simply cannot now be erased from the memory’s palette.

The emotional expressions of the leading pair are just as consummate and accomplished as the scenario itself. The sharing of the umbrella becomes such a pivotal exchange. The young man offers it to the lady. And she hands it back, seeing him getting drenched. He takes it, but then sees that she is in the same plight, so immediately offers it back to her. She once again takes it, and with a helplessness writ large on her face, sees him getting drenched once again. And then the inevitable happens. With her eyes clenched, and her lips trembling with apprehension, she inches closer to him – dawning of the realization that one must share when there is a need. And the two come close now, holding the same umbrella – realizing that in love, one has to share, one has to hold together, and one has to steady each other against the squall of the winds and outpourings of this ruthless world.

And then the song begins – question by the young man, not specifically directed at her, but at himself too. And the lady answers, for both of them together – “. . . Maaloom Nahin Hai Kahaan Manzil . . .”. One of the supreme examples of cinema at its very best, in telling about emotions that shake a heart when the love is just starting to take baby steps in there. Marvellous . . . simply marvelous – much more than the best of the words can express.

Um. . . kind of got carried away with the original. 🙂

25 years after the release of the original, this song was used once again in the 1979 film ‘Salaam Memsaab’. And the manner of use is so very innovative. A little earlier, back in 1970, when ‘Mera Naam Joke’ was released, at the beginning of part II we see Raj Kapoor at the Bombay Carnival, hosting a bioscope stand, singing “Kehta Ha Joker, Saara Zamaana. . .”. And as he sings, he is operating the bioscope in which we are treated to clips of his earlier films, especially ‘Awaara’ and ‘Shri 420’. It is fun to watch those clips in fast forward mode.

In ‘Salaam Memsaab’, a similar presentation is used. A little background. Radha (role played by Zarina Wahab) and Sunder (role played by Asrani) are two young people, friends and in love. They are the street tamaasha people who sing and dance on the roadside to earn their living. Sunder has high aspirations, and wants to become rich quickly. Radha also has aspirations, but she is averse to making compromises with her principles of honesty and truthfulness. They work together, but this difference in their view of life generates arguments.

Near the beginning of the film, just about half hour into it, Radha chances to see a bioscope man, playing his machine near the Gateway of India. She gets in line and starts watching – she gets in when the song “Pyaar Hua Iqraar Hua Hai. . .” is starting to play. We can see her enjoying the show, and then as the lead pair comes on at the beginning of the song, she gets into a different dreamy dimension of fantasy, and instead of seeing Raj Kapoor and Nargis on the screen, she sees herself and Sunder there, performing the same song, singing and expressing their newly discovered love for each other. She is fascinated, and the entire song is replayed on the screen in front of her, performed now by the two new lovers.

This is a very innovative presentation. In the singing parts of the clip, we can see Radha and Sunder performing, and in the other parts of the clip, the director uses the original footage and scenes. The entire song moves back and forth between the now Radha and Sunder, and the earlier scenes. Very interestingly edited and put together. E.g. when the line “Phir Bhi Rahengi Nishaaniyan” is playing, the scene clips back to the original version and we see the three toddlers with raincoats, toddling through the rain. Readers may recall that in the original version, the three kids are the children of Raj Kapoor – Ritu, Randhir and Rishi. The clip cuts back and forth between the current version, shown in subdued colors and shades, and the original version shown in black and white. Very intelligently designed.

In her dream of wide open eyes, Radha sees herself and Sunder, in an exact image of the hero and heroine on screen. As one watches their movements and expressions, the effort has been made to create an exact replica not just of the scenario, but also of the performance and expressions. You can open up two windows in the video playing software, and play the two songs, this one and the original, side by side. One is amazed by the effort made by Zarina and Asrani to replicate the performance as nearly as possible. Ah, we know it is not Raj Kapoor and it is not Nargis. But still it is a very impressive performance to see.

The film ‘Salaam Memsaab’ is produced under the banner of Roshan Films, Bombay and is directed by Asrani himself. The cast of actors includes Asrani, Zarina Wahab, Ranjeet, Manju Bansal, Rahman, Keshto Mukherjee, Asit Sen, Jugnu, Leela Mishra, Sulochana (Senior), Tom Alter, CS Dubey, Arvind Rathore, Anand Girdhar, Amol Sen, Dilip Tahil, Nilu Arora, Master Jeetu, Yusuf, and Raju, with friendly appearances by Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Yogita Bali, and Rishi Kapoor. The songs of this film are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and the music is by RD Burman. Seven songs are listed for this film which have been rendered by Mohamed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.

This song, being a reuse, is not listed in Geet Kosh. And as I mentioned in an earlier episode of this series, it is not easy to track down such re-use songs, unless one has actually seen the film(s). I had also written that since I started this series, I have been getting inputs from many friends, from our bandwagon and also from others in our music lovers group, about such reuse songs. Since these songs are generally not listed, such inputs from friends has really added many interesting reuse scenarios that I was not aware of.

Today’s song was sent in as a suggestion from Anekant ji. He is a regular contributor in our comments section, and I am sure all are familiar with him. Not being aware of this reuse song, I am delighted to get this input from him. A real wonderful song, and a real wonderful reuse after twenty five years – from 1954 to 1979 to 2019 – and forty more, when we are now reading about it once again. 🙂

A reuse that takes you into a fantasy land of a dream of wide awake eyes. I am sure all of us have had some similar experience some time or another in our lives. Apologies for the digression, but I just remembered another such on screen ‘dream of wide awake eyes’ which I just cannot resist mentioning. 🙂 For all those who have seen and remember ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1972). Yes, I am referring to the song “Jaaneman Jaaneman Tere Do Nayan”. Amol Palekar is watching the film in a theatre. Onscreen the song is being performed by Dharmendra and Hema Malini. And within a few seconds, Amol Palekar goes into this ‘dream of wide awake eyes’, and through his eyes, we see the song being performed on screen by himself and Vidya Sinha. The reverie is quiet painfully broken as the villain appears at the end of the song and hits the hero with a belt. (Just from that split second profile, my feeling has been that it was actor Manmohan, the villain I mean.)

Ah so, we have a new category of songs to mull over – ‘dream of wide awake eyes’. And I am sure the readers will recall many such songs in Hindi films – yes, we do that a lot. 🙂

Enjoy today’s wonderful reuse treat and let’s wait for the next – what more such entertaining surprises are coming up.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Okay, okay, just before you sit up and ask again – “ये क्या हो रहा है”, a quick reminder that we are into this series of repeat songs. This is the third episode today.

There are well known, as well as obscure, instances existing in which the reused songs appear in the list of the songs of the latter film. The reuse listing of the song can appear as it is – a few examples being,

  • “Gori Zulm Karey Zulf Ka Bikhar Jaana” – this song appears in the listings for the film ‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’ (1961) and the film ‘Pyaar Banaa Afsaana’, an unreleased film from 1960s.
  • The four songs of the film ‘Ram Rajya’ of 1943 are reused in the film ‘Ramayan’ of 1954
    “Beena Madhur-Madhur Kachhu Bol…”
    “Ajab Vidhi Ka lekh Kisi Se Padha Nahi Jaaye…”
    “Jhoole Mein Jhool Laal, Jhool Tu Jhool…”
    “Tyagmayi Tu Gayi, Teri Amar Bhaawna…”
    Note: The music director for both films is same – Shankar Rao Vyas; and the lyricist of these four songs is also the same – Ramesh Gupta.
  • “Beeti Jaat Barkha Ritu Saajan Nahin Aaye” – this song appears in the listings for the film ‘Muraad’ (1939) and the film ‘Dharam Bandhan’ (1940).
  • Four songs of an unreleased film ‘Parda’ from late 1940s are reused in the film ‘Achhaa ji’ of 1950
    ‘Taqraar Ko Badal Do Pyaar Mein, Na Karo Chhed Bekaar Mein…’
    ‘Bhool Hai Kisi Ko Apnana, Vichaaron Mein Basana…’
    ‘Kisi Ke Bholepan Ne… Mere Mann Ko Kheencha…’
    ‘Bhar Jaaye Aasmaan To Aahon Ki Kya Khata…’
    Note: The lyricist (Indiwar) and music director (Shyam Babu Pathak) are the same. The film director (SH Thirani) is also the same.
  • Six songs of the 1957 film ‘Pawanputra Hanuman’ have been reused in the 1969 film ‘Hanuman Chalisa’.
  • Strange occurrence – two films of the same year, 1958 – ‘Rifle Girl’ and ‘Miss Toofaan Mail’ share the song – “Bheegi Hawa Mausam Jawaan, Masti Mein Dooba Saara Jahaan…”.
  • Rare occurrence, the same song is used in three films. The song is “Bhiksha De De Maiya Pingla, Jogi Khada Hai Dwaar…”. The films are ‘Bharthari’ (1944), ‘Raajyogi Bharthari’ (1954), and ‘Gopichand Bharthari’ (1965). Lyricist identified for these songs is Pandit Indra.
  • The song “Bolo Jaywantrao Ek Naam Prem Bhara. . .” appears in ‘Mera Imaan’ (1934) and ‘Swadesh Dewa’ (1946).
  • Interesting re-use – the song “Phool Chun Le Mere Baalam Ki Jaane Kab Daal Jhuke” appears in ‘Naubahaar’ of 1952 and then again in ‘Firdaus’ of 1953. Artist combination is the same – Sahir, Roshan, Lata.
  • Another one – “Baat Chalat Nai Chunari Rang Daali” – appears in film ‘Ladki’ of 1953 and then again in ‘Rani Roopmati’ of 1959.

Then there are films with the same list of songs.

  • ‘Satyanarayan’ of 1948 and ‘Bhikhaari’ of 1949
  • ‘Sushila’ of 1966 and ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ of 1977
  • ‘Amar Kahaani’ of 1949 and ‘Kanchan’ of 1955
  • ‘Sipaahi’ of 1941 and ‘Jangi Jawaani’ of 1943
  • ‘Suhaana Geet’ of 1941 and ‘Toote Dil’ of 1947
  • ‘Ram Bhakti’ of 1958 and ‘Bhakt Raaj’ of 1950
  • ‘Paanch Dushman’ of 1973 and ‘Daulat Ke Dushman’ of 1987

Although not specifically confirmed, in most cases, the above list of film pairs with all songs the same, the situation is that the latter film is a somewhat modified, re-certified and re-released version of the earlier film.

The above sampling is in no way exhaustive. More such instances may be discovered by a more meticulous review of the song lists in Geet Kosh.

But then, this observation has also to be annotated by saying that there are exceptions. There are many known cases where the repeat songs do not appear in the official list of songs of the film. The song may have been used as is without any modifications. The song may be used as an abridged version i.e. the stanzas used in repeat form are less than the original version. Or even when the song may be used quite differently.

These repeat instances of songs do not appear in the list of songs of the latter film. This is confirmed by a quick review of the Geet Kosh listings, which are primarily based on the information from the film booklets, and/or information printed on the gramophone records – 78 rpm records or LPs/EPs. Casual reuse, we may call it. Of course, ownership / copyright / permissions etc. are things that have to be taken care of. But it is always fun to be watching a film (especially when watching for the first time), and one is suddenly confronted with an unexpected song. The song already has a life and existence of its own. And it has its own popularity and following. All of a sudden out of the blue, the song will make a surprise appearance in another film, in another time. And one is simply – wow, एसा भी होता है – such things happen too.

The first song in this series – “Aa Ja Re Pardesi. . .” belongs to this category. As does this fun song that I bring to your notice today. An iconic song – a very typical and very strongly a Mehmood song, from the earlier film ‘Gumnaam’ from 1965, makes an unexpected and surprise appearance in the 1968 film ‘Brahmchaari’. This time around, the song is performed by the Junior incarnation of Mehmood, and he has done a superlative job of presenting this song. This song does not appear in the list of songs of the film ‘Brahmchaari’, and hence, when it appears in the film, the mind takes a double take – okay wow, this song, here.

The situation can be labeled as a ‘male-child item song’ 🙂 . It is just there, does not really add to the storyline content of the film. The children of Shammi Kapoor’s private orphanage are together, along with Mohan Choti, the handy man around the house, and Rajshri, who has descended on to this ‘family’ as a distraught outsider with no place to go. The song is heard on a gramophone player, on which the 78 rpm record is playing.

As I said earlier, Junior Mehmood has done a remarkable job performing this song, at that age. Born in 1956, he was all of 12 years old when he performed this song. A little short in height for his age, this performance is really lovable.

This video clip contains two stanzas, one less from the original three. However, my hunch is that all three were initially included when ‘Brahmchaari’ was released. In this video clip also, as the action moves from the first to the second stanza, there is slight jump in the visual, indicating there might have been a cut made – and the middle stanza was deleted later, for whatever reason.

Avinash ji has been posting a mini series on Junior Mehmood performances in Hindi films, so I will skip getting into more details about this fun child artist. Somehow the natural transformation, as these child artists move from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, does not seem to happen. The success of what their performance is, and the kudos it has drawn, continues to overshadow this required transformation as one grows in years. Very few examples are where an artist of proven merit in child roles has also made a successful career once having grown up. But that discussion is maybe another article, or another series.

Meanwhile, enjoy this really likeable performance, which I am sure will prompt you to go and take a look at the original ‘Gumnaam’ song also. I myself sure did.

Song – Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain  (Brahmchaari) (1968) Singers – Mohammed Rafi, Mehmood, Lyrics – Shailendra, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Reading the title of the post, you must be wondering – “ये क्या हो रहा है?” (“What is this going on?”). This song – who says this song is not yet posted. Goodness, this film is yippeee’d long back. So why are we re-posting this song? Sudhir seems to have taken up certain vice (or vices) with unlikeable after effects. 😀 😀

Well, no and yes. No – I have not taken up any such vices 🙂 that may impair my abilities to make decisions about posting songs. And yes – this song, from film ‘Madhumati’ of 1958, is already posted here on our blog. The film ‘Madhumati’ made its debut here on 1st May, 2009. The eleven songs of this film made their appearances over the subsequent four plus years, and film was yippeee’d on 4th Jul, 2013. This song originally appeared on 3rd May, 2009. ‘Madhumati’ is a done deal.

Of course your question still remains – “ये क्या हो रहा है?”. The answer to that follows.

I will try to make the long story short. Beginning of this month, Bakshi ji and I were in Bombay, to attend the annual two day seminar titled ‘Cine Music Beyond Entertainment’, which is arranged by our friend Shri Kushal Gopalka, every year. In one of the post session discussions, I came to know about a very interesting anecdote. The session was on the life and work of music director Vasant Desai.

The anecdote is about the 1971 film ‘Guddi’. The Geet Kosh lists three songs for this film,

The first two songs are penned by Gulzar. The third is a traditional bhajan, written by Meerabai, one of the greatest saints of the Bhakti Movement in India, which originated in India in the eighth century AD. Meerabai, who belonged to the royal family of Mewar (in Rajasthan) spent her time here on this sub continent, in the fifteenth century AD. Music for these three songs is composed by Vasant Desai. All three songs are in the voice of Vani Jairam. When the film released in theaters, it had only these three songs in it.

Now, one of the supervisory activities that the producer and distributor staff undertake, especially in the first one or two weeks of the film exhibition, is that they go to select cinema halls where the film is being shown. They will be present in the hall as the film is being shown, and they will also mingle with the crowd during intermission and at the end of the film. The objective is to pick up and gather live feedback about the film from the audience. It helps them to make some choices and educated decisions about the future exhibition plans.

One thing that happened during this exercise was that the team gathered feedback that sounded negative. One part was the use of only one playback voice, and that too a very fresh debut. Plus the overall summary of live audience feedback sounded disheartening and negative. Immediate discussions happened involving Hrishikesh Mukherji, the producers (Rupam Chitra) and the distributors. One recommendation that came out of these discussions was to somehow modify the mix of songs in the film. It was felt that the bhajan song (of Meerabai) should go. What should replace it? How to create a new song for the film at a short notice? Please note that this description of events is for the very first one or two days after the release of the film.

One of the recommendations from the distributors was to include another song, preferably by Lata Mangeshkar. After quick discussions, it was decided to re-use the song of ‘Madhumati’. I really wonder how fast the decision and action taken process worked. Approvals were sought and taken – Bimal Roy’s estate, Salil Chowdhury et al. The team was reassembled, and the song was picturised. Apparently, the Meera bhajan was in the same setting in the film. At the party, Jaya Bhaduri is performing the Bhajan by Meerabai – “Hari Bin Kaise Jiyun Ri” – an expression of her waiting for Samit to come to the party. This song from ‘Madhumati’ fitted the emotional-expression criteria to the T.

The song was picturzed, it was edited into the film, replacing the bhajan, the censor certificate for revision to the film was applied for and taken. Multiple copies of the revised reel of the film was quickly processed and produced on emergency basis, and distributed to the theatres for immediate change to the film being shown. How fast this whole process worked – one may gauge the speed and success of this whole exercise from the fact that the revision appeared in the theatres before the first week of exhibition was complete, i.e. within the first 5 or 6 days only.

Now, interestingly, Vasant Desai was away from Bombay at that time. Important point to note is that this whole decision making and replacement process happened without the involvement of Vasant Desai, the music director.

Possibly many of our learned friends in this musical bandwagon may already be aware of this. I was not, so this was a startling discovery for me. I must add hurriedly that yes, I have seen this films, possibly more than once, but somehow I do not carry any memory of this song being present in this film.

The booklets of the film do not contain this song. And hence, the Geet Kosh also does not list this song. This song does not appear on the EPs/LPs of this film. This song has no other status in relation to this film, except that yes, it is included in the film. The credits at the beginning of the film remain unchanged. Vani Jairam is the only playback voice, and Vasant Desai is the sole music director. And so, the video of this song is the only evidence that this song is present in the film.

A very, very interesting episode. For me, it brought into very sharp focus, an idea that songs from earlier films are at times, re-used in later films. Before this discussion happened in Bombay, I was aware of one or two such instances. They were just interesting trivia in the mind. After this discussion highlighted this activity so sharply, an idea started to form in my mind. I started to search for more such instances. I searched through my own memory, I researched the remarks and footnotes in the Geet Kosh, and I discussed this with friends and collectors in our group and in my circle, trying to gather more information about such re-use of songs. And when I am able to gather a sizeable list, the thought came to the mind – this is a new series to discuss this very interesting facet of the Hindi film music.

As I am gathering information about such instances, I also became aware af the various modes of re-use. Yes, the re-use happens not only just ‘as is’, but there even are further variations on how this re-use may occur. As we proceed with the series, I will be highlighting and discussing these different re-use ‘styles’. It does make for a very interesting discussion.

And so, here is the first offering of this series. The song from ‘Madhumati’ of 1958 is re-used – as is, ditto, no change – 13 years later in ‘Guddi’ of 1971. Ah, I must correct myself. One change does happen. The original song in ‘Madhumati’ has three stanzas. The re-use version in ‘Guddi’ has only two stanzas. The first stanza of the ‘Madhumati’ version is left out.

This is the very first re-use ‘style’ – the song has been directly used and copied as is. No alterations, no additions, no other changes. Just get approvals, and simply insert the earlier song, as it fits into the storyline. This is the simplest form of re-use. I will be presenting more such instances moving forward.

So view this associated video clip, and listen to the original recording of this song, now being lip synced by Jaya Bhaduri. The scenario is so utterly different. The original setting in ‘Madhumati’ is mountains, forests, river and waterfall. The entire natural surroundings seem to be participating in the earlier picturization of the song. In this later ‘Guddi’ incarnation, this is just a song being sung at a party. The performer, very naturally, is just standing still, as the audience simply watches and waits for the song as it progresses. Absolutely minimal activity and movement in this scene.

Besides Jaya, we can also see Sumita Sanyal, Utpal Dutt and Vijay Sharma in the clip, as family members watching the impromptu performance. Samit Bhanj, for whose benefit and in whose wait, this song is being performed, is seen arriving at the party, just as the song gets started, and he thoughtfully waits just outside the entrance to the room, listening to the song being performed. Amongst the guests at the party, there are many familiar faces – of junior artists that are part of such scenes in films. But their names remain obscure.

Before I close this write-up, another very interesting aside. The film ‘Guddi’ has already been yippeee’d on our blog, as of 20th March, 2013. That is, as per the Geet Kosh list of songs. But now, we have one more additional song from this film. A repeat, but nonetheless another song that is part of this film, performed by the actor(s) in this film. Another cateogry called for – ‘yippeee+‘ – finding more songs in a film that are officially listed for the film. 😀 😀 I am sure there are more than one such instances earlier also, when songs for certain films have been posted that do not appear in the official list of songs.

So. . . starting this interesting journey of repeat songs in Hindi films. I hope this thread will interest you.

“Naughty Boy”(1962) was produced and directed by Shakti Samanta. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Kalpana, Omprakash, Sundar, Madan Puri, Kanu Roy, Krishnkant, Kundan, Praveen Paul, Shivraj, Sulochana Cahtterji, Prretibala, Nand Kishore, Masud, Paachhi, Manjula, Samar Chatterji, Kamaldeep, etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it.

The details of the songs from the movie that have been covered in the past :-

1 Sa sa sa sa re 3558 23-Feb-11
2 Ho ho dil dhadka 7483 10-Feb-13
3 Ho gayee shaaam dil badnaam 10177 30-Aug-14

6 Rang ye duniya badalti hai badal ja pyaare 14417 12-Jun-18
7 Nazren mila ke jo duniya ki nazron se dare 14725 31-Oct-18

Here is the eighth and final song from “Naughty Boy”(1962) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The picturisation shows this song as a bar dance/ club dance song where a lady dancer (Kalpana ?) singing near the table occupied by Kishore Kumar, looking like Joy Mukherji. For a moment I thought that Kishore Kumar was apeing Joy Mukherji, but then I realised that Kishore Kumar was the maternal uncle (Mama) of Joy Mukherji, and why would he ape the mannerisms of someone who was half his age and a newcomer.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancer.

With this song, a very small (under two minutes long) song, “Naught Boy”(1962) now has all its songs covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Today (31 october 2018) is the 43rd remembrance day of S D Burman (1 october 1906- 31 october 1975).

As a tribute, we already had a long and interesting article on S D Burman by our inhouse HFM historian cum researcher Mr Sadanand Kamath.

SLBC (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation too spent almost the whole broadcast duration today by playing 27 S D Burman compositions today out of 28- the last being a K L Saigal song, of course. 27 S D Burman composition out of 670 odd HFM songs that S D Burman composed in his career work out to about 4 % of all S D Burman HFM songs.

My way of paying tributes to HFM artists is to present detaile filmography of those artists. It is no different today. Here in this aricle I will provide full filmography of S D Burman as far as Hindi movies are concerned.

S D Burman composed musuc in 89 released movies and one unreleased movie, as far as I can tell. As many as 74 of these movies are already YIPPEED in the blog. Overall, S D Burman composed some 670 songs in these movies. This blog has 626 of these songs. The blog also has 5 non film songs composed by S D Burman.

So in summary, only around 45 SD Burman HFM songs from 15 movies are left to be covered. All of these songs may not be available. My guess is that another 30 odd songs out of these 45 may be available and then S D Burman willjoin artists like K L Saigal and Suraiyya whose available songs are fully represented in the blog.

Here are the details of S D Burman songs from his hindi movies :-

The song is picturised on Kishore Kumar and others. One can see, among others, Edvina in the picturisation of this song. I am not familiar with others visible. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors in the picturisation.

“Sanskaar”(1952) was produced and directed by V M Vyas. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti, Purnima, Veera, Pran, Razi, Shashi Kapoor (Sr), Ihswar Lal, Mirza Musharraf, Murad, Kalyani, Pappu, Baby Naaz, Indira Mumtaz etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

When I looked at the three balance songs of the movie, I discovered that these songs were great and special songs in their respective genre. Nevertheless, if I keep holding songs back for special occasions then I may not find myself with too many songs to discuss on a “normal” day. 🙂 So I decided that one out of these three songs should be discussed today.

Here is the fifth song from “Sanskaar”(1952) to appear in the blog. This song is an inspiration song which is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

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


Song-Jeenewaale o matwaale zindagi se pyaar kar (Sanskaar)(1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
yoon na baith zindagi mein zindagi se haar kar,
pyaar kar
jeenewaale

moorakh na dar dekh andhera
moorakh na dar dekh andhera
hoga kabhi to savera
hoga kabhi to savera aa
ranj-o-gham se zindagi ke roop ka singaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewaale

jo dukh bhi aaye tu jhelta chal
jo dukh bhi aaye tu jhelta chal
har gham se khelta chal
har gham se khelta chal
zinda hai to zindagi pe jaan bhi nisaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewale o matwaale
zindagi se pyaar kar
pyaar kar
jeenewaale

The song initially has some gibberish words (or may be words in some other languages). I request our readers with keener ears to help correct the lyrics wherever applicable.

Today (2 march 2018) is Holi, the festival of colours in India.

This happens to be the TENTH Holi festival for the blog. We discuss Holi songs from Hindi movies on this occasion. As many as 55 Holi festival songs have been covered during the last nine Holi festival occasions. Almost all well known Hol festival songs have already been covered. But seeing that Holi is the most popular festival for Hindi movies, ahead of the second placed festival of Deewaali, we still have a good number of Holi festival songs still left to be covered.

Take this song for instance. This movie “Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani”(1957) had seven songs in it. The sixth and penultimate song from the movie was discussed two years ago. The seventh and final song had to be held back all these days because it happened to be a Holi festival song. It was lined up for 2017 Holi but it missed the bus on that occasion. So the next opportunity for this song being covered in the blog was the Holi of 2018 viz today.

Here are the details of the six songs of “Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani”(1957) that have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh and final song of “Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani”(1957) to appear in the blog. This “holi” festival song is sung by Manna Dey, Lata and chorus. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

ना ये चाँद होगा

ना तारे रहेंगे
मगर हम हमेशा तुम्हारे रहेंगे

A promise of a voice, that continues to remind, of a feeling, of a little tangy flavored honey, slipping down the taste buds in the rear of the tongue. A voice that is sweet, that is humble. It may haunt you, but it will never come to you as an onslsught; it surely will over power your heart, but more in the manner of a polite request saying “Naa Jaao Sainyaan Chhuda Ke Bainyaan. . .”.

A personality that was more about inward expressions. Time was in the early sixties, as her singing assignments were dwindling, in a chance phone conversation with OP Nayyar, the simple complaint she aired to him was – “Aap to hum ko bhool gaye”. The reference of course was to the many hits she had sung for him, for the duration of a short stint, from 1952 to 1958. And after delivering the super hit “Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu” (‘Howrah Bridge”) in 1958, there is really very little, actually nothing, that OPN offered her to sing. It is quite a wonder that OPN went from strength to strength starting with ‘Aasmaan’ in 1952, and working through ‘Baaz’ (1953), ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Mr And Mrs 55’ (1955), ‘CID’, ‘Chhoo Mantar’, and ‘Mr Lambu’ in 1956, ‘Johnny Walker’ and ‘Ustad’ in 1957, and then ‘Howrah Bridge’, ’12 O’Clock’, ‘Mujrim’ and ‘Mr Qartoon MA’ in 1958. Thereafter, no more OP Nayyar songs for her. In any case, as we progress from 1952 to 1958, there is a noticeable increment in Asha Bhosle’s share of singing for OPN.

In a private conversation many years later, OPN did express his regrets that he completely cut off Geeta from his portfolio. With such dwindling fortunes, it is still not a wonder that she was still able to clock close to 1300 songs in Hindi films, from 1946 to 1971, much better than many of her contemporaries. That was the magnetism in her voice.

Today, we bring on board, the 800th song of this nightingale. The film is ‘Badnaam’ from 1952. The lyrics are by Shailendra and music is by Basant Prakash. The melancholia that she has the ability to generate, sometimes defies the thought that she is also able to sing the likes of “Mera Naam Chin ChinChu”. Maybe the grand success of “Mera Sunder Sapna Beet Gaya. . .” from ‘Do Bhai’ (1947) was a portend of the path of destiny she was to follow.

This song also, tells of the sadness of a broken heart, as the clouds of gloom are gathering in the mind’s sky. And the love is itself in tears – “प्यार रोने लगा”. It was not just an expression tutored by the music director, to sing it in a particular manner. It was the reality of her life that she lived – all the way to her passing away in 1972.

It was not just the season of rains. It was her whole life.

Song – Ghir Aayi Hai Ghor Ghata  (Badnaam) (1952) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Shailendra, MD – Basant Prakash

Lyrics

ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
apni majboorion se lipat ke
pyaar rone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

tha kya pata yun badal jaayega aasmaan
yun bante bante ujad jaayega aashiaan
pahunchi saahil pe jab meri naiyya
gham dubone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

kaisi ye mushkil jo sochun wo kar na sakoon
haaye
main aaj marna bhi chaahun to mar na sakoon
yun mere saamne mere dil ka
khoon honay laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata
apni majboorion se lipat ke
pyaar rone laga
haaye
pyaar rone laga
ghir aayi hai ghor ghata

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————
घिर आई है घोर घटा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
अपनी मजबूरीओं से लिपट के
प्यार रोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा

था क्या पता यूं बादल जाएगा आसमाँ
यूं बनते बनते उजाड़ जाएगे आशियाँ
पहुंची साहिल पे जब मेरी नैया
ग़म डुबोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा

कैसी ये मुश्किल जो सोचूँ वो कर ना सकूँ
मैं आज मारना भी चाहूँ तो मर ना सकूँ
यूं मेरे सामने मेरे दिल का
खून होने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
घिर आई है घोर घटा
अपनी मजबूरीओं से लिपट के
प्यार रोने लगा
हाए
प्यार रोने लगा
घिर आई है घोर घटा

Today (1 january 2018) happens to be the first day of the week, month as well as the year. So, it is just a perfect day to make new year resolutions and stick to them. 🙂 Most of these resolutions typically fail to last for more than the first few days of the year.

We too have some new year resolutions every year and we often do better than most such NYRs. Last year, I had resolved that we will post one “debutant” movie song and one “YIPPEE” movie songs. I managed to live up to this resolution of one “debutant movie” for the first 40 days of the year. I managed to follow the resulutions of one “YIPPEE” movie daily for four months and this streak got broken on 6 may 2017, after 125 days !

One should not give excuse for failing to live up to the resolutions for longer than that. The fact that I managed to live upto my resolutions for this long means that I am more determined and motivated than majority of new year resolutioners. I may have mentioned in the past that one of my my longest resolutions that I have that I have been following without interruption is waking up early in the morning and walking, irrespective of cold, fog, rain etc. I have been following it without fil for more than two years.

The blog by now has covered songs from 3777 movies. Searching for as yet unrepresented movies is being increasingly difficult because the as yet unrepresented movies are rare movies and their songs are difficult to come by. Every day I spend considerable time searching for songs from as yet unrepresented movies. discovering songs from such movies is becoming a tall order. That is why this resolution could not remain a continuous resolution beyond forty days.

We have so far covered all songs for 1033 movies. In other words, 27 % of all the movies represented in the blog have already been YIPPEED. It is not a small feat. The songs of these 1033 movies add up to nearly 7000 songs.

In 2017, 170 movies got YIPPEED. So after the 125 days uninterrupted streak was broken, movies got YIPPEED at a leisurely pace of one movie per week for the rest of the year.

A major reason why it was difficult to have one YIPPEE movie daily after 125 days was that the final one or two songs of many movies are elusive. Every day I spend considerable time searching for these elusive songs.

So, I end up spending good amount of time searching for “debutant” movie songs as well as “YIPPEE” songs. This reflects in the blog clocking less number of songs daily unlike in the previous years. The year 2017 saw 1102 songs getting covered at a rate of 3 songs per day, which is a steep fall from the previous years when the blog used to cover more than 2000 songs in a year.

The overall blog strike rate is still over four songs a day though. Today (1 january 2018) is the 3454th day for the blog. This post is post number 13852, and so the present blog strike rate is 4.011 songs per day. There was a time when this stood at 4.62 songs per day.

My new year resolution is that I will post at least one debutant song and one YIPPEE song on the first day of the year, viz today. 🙂 No guarantee from tomorrow onwards. 🙂

Here is the first YIPPEE movie of the year 2018. This movie is ‘Mad Bhare Nain’ (1955). It was produced by RL Anand and directed by Hem Chundar for Fortune Films, Bombay. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Bina Rai, David, Yashodhara Katju, Badri Prasad, Mishra, Durga Khote, Nazir Hussain, Achala Sachdev, Sarita, Bhupendar Kapoor, etc in it with Sundar billed in a guest appearance.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. This eighth and final song from the movie is an extremely elusive song, as can be expected.

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by SD Burman.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on Kishore Kumar and Bina Rai. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

The song has certain words that I have not been able to get. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, “Mad Bhare Nain”(1955) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy New Year 2018.
