Today’s song is from the film with a funny name- Pilpili Saheb-1954.

When I saw this film’s posters in Hyderabad in 1954 , I laughed at the title of the film. I thought that the film had to do something with the yellow colour ! None of my friends knew the meaning of this word. After intense discussion, we decided to go to our Hindi teacher-Mathur sir. He was from Allahabad and was a very jovial person. He treated the students with a lot of humour and gentle talk. So we did not feel any fear or awkwardness to ask him this question. Otherwise, in those days asking such questions to any teacher was a certain invitation to caning !

Mathur Sir explained that Pilpili Saheb means a villager who dons modern western clothes, like Pant, Shirt, Coat, Hat etc. Listening to this reply, I felt an urge to see the film. As such the film had few comedians like Agha, Sunder and Mehmood.

Out of the 9 songs of the film, 4 songs are already on the blog. The first song appeared here on 4-3-2011. It was a duet of Meena Mangeshkar and Mohd. Rafi. That time Atul ji had called the song a very rare song and rightly so. That was because Meena Mangeshkar had sung very few songs in Hindi films. (She had already become Meena Khadikar after her recent marriage then, in 1953). She sang only 13 songs in 11 films, during a period of 38 years ( 1952 ton 1990). Earlier it was felt that her songs are only 12 in 10 films, but Mahesh Mamdapur has found out one more song of Meena from film Pehli Shadi-1953, with Asha Bhosle and Mohantara Ajinkya (nee Talpade). Thank you, Mahesh ji. Today’s song is a triad with Usha Mangeshkar and a newcomer Shaminder Singh Pal.

Here is a short Bio of singer Shaminder Singh, for the benefit of those who are not aware of this less known singer, who sang in Hindi films between 1954 to 1973.This was written by our Sadanand Kamath ji on 18-9-2012 in one of his posts. Thanks for this.

Shaminder( also known as Bhai Shaminder Singh) born in 1930/31, belonged to a wealthy landlord sikh family in Muktsar Sahib district of Punjab. It is said that the family owned almost half of the village where they stayed. Since his childhood, he was fond of music. He was a fan of Mohammed Rafi and Talat Mehmood whose songs he would listen to on the radio for hours and sing in sync with their songs. He adored Lata Mangeshkar as a Goddess. As he grew up, singing became his hobby and he could sing songs in the style of Rafi and Talat at ease.

As I said earlier, singing a duet song with Lata Mangeshkar was his obsession and to achieve his goal, he left his village for Bombay (Mumbai) some time in 1953 and met Sardul Kwatra, who was an upcoming music director. Sardul found that Shaminder had the quality of a professional playback singer. He felt that there was a man who could sing in a voice which had a blend of Rafi and Talat. So he decided to use him as a playback singer for songs in his Punjabi film ‘Vanjara’ (1954) which was being produced by Sardul’s family. In this film, there was a duet song which he was planning to get Shamshad Begum to sing with Shaminder. However, Shaminder was bent upon singing this song with Lata Mangeshkar. To fulfill his obsession, he offered a carrot to Sardul by way of financing his Punjabi film. This trick worked with Sardul. I had read elsewhere that Sardul Kwatra was a charming person especially among women folks. Probably with his charm, he must have persuaded Lata Mangeshkar to sing a Punjabi song with a newcomer Shaminder. Fortunately for Shaminder, not only this duet song but all songs sungs by him in this film became hits with the masses of Punjab.

Having tasted success, Shaminder was now interested in singing in Hindi films and again his obsession was singing a duet with Lata Mangeshkar. He got the chance to sing with her in the film ‘Pilpili Saheb’ (1954). It is said that he also got a chance to sing with Asha Bhonsle in some other films but I could not locate any such song in YT. In any case, he did get the chance to sing a song with Geeta Dutt in the film ‘Son of Alibaba’ (1954). I find that he sang almost all of his Hindi film songs under the baton of Sardul Kwatra. Later, Mohinder also took him as a playback singer for Punjabi films.

Having fulfilled his obsession to sing with Lata Mangeshkar, he was no longer very much interested in playback singing. In all, he sang only 15 Hindi songs in 8 films, namely Pilpili Saheb-54, Pensioner-54, Tees Maar Khan-55, Son of Alibaba-55, Jalwa-55, Ghar ghar mein diwali-55, Kala Chashma-62 and finally Mera Desh mera Dharam-73. By late 50s/early 60s, he turned to acting in Punjabi and Hindi films. In Punjabi films he mostly acted in lead roles while in Hindi films, he got side roles in a few films like ‘Aas Ka Panchhi’-1961, ‘Anpadh’ -1962, Bank Robbery-1969 and Sultana Daku-1972. He acted mainly in Punjabi films.
He passed away some time in the early 90s.( The article is a little adapted to include his film and song details.)

I had given the storyline of the film Pilpili Saheb-1954, some 11 years ago, as a comment on the film’s second song presented on 3-11-2011. For the benefit of our new readers, here it is…

PILPILI SAHEB(1954) was a Kwatra film production,produced by Malika and N.S.Kwatra,Directed by H.S.Kwatra and Music by Sardul Kwatra. Thus it was an all family affair.
The film cast was full of funsters like Agha,Sunder,Mehmood and a couple of beauties like Shyama,Kuldip kaur,Lalita kumari,Helen,Mumtaz(old),but still it failed at the Box office.

The story and Dialogues were by S.P.Bakshi and S.K.Prabhakar and s/play by Ravi Kapoor.

Pilpili Saheb is an Emotional-Romantic Musical-Comedy-Thriller Family Drama Film crafted with excellence by H.S. Kwatra. The Story revolves around the life of Pilpili Saheb (played by Agha)- A Kind-Hearted man living alone in this world and loves to live by his means and falls in love with Rani (played by Shyama)- A Sweet girl and wants to marry her. He crossed every obstacle and hurdles in front of him and wanted her to love him- without knowing she is married to another man (played by Pran), leading to consequences.

In this film Agha is PILPILI SAHEB.In his villege,he loves Rani(Shyama) for whom he wants to build a Taj Mahal,but first he must win her love to marry her and she should die before him !

To get her he tries everything,leaves the village,rides a Donkey,cleans utensils,becomes a photographer,acts on stage-a clown,a villain,a Hero etc etc.
There is a twist in the tale.Thru a stage artist,it is revealed that Rani is already a married woman and her husband is Pran.
Even his friend Sunder who loves Kuldip Kaur,marries and lives happily.

Indian cine goers have fixed ideas about the end results of a film-like Good wins over Bad,Lovers either unite or die,The Poor wins in the end etc.The end either has to be a Tragedy or a happy ending.

Pilpili Saheb had an utterly strange ending which was seen as cheating by the viewers,instead of getting amused. Therefore,although the film had good music,comedy scenes etc,still it failed miserably at the Box office.

Let us now listen to this rare song of Meena Mangeshkar, with sister Usha Mangeshkar and Shaminder Singh.


Song-Sapnon ki duniya mein naye rang laaya (Pilpili Sahab)(1954) Singers- Shaminder Singh, Usha Mangeshkar, Meena Mangeshkar, Lyricist- Shailendra, MD- Sardul Kwatra

Today, December 29, 2021 is the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, singer, actor and the music director in Hindi and Bangla films. The resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar seems to have influenced the music director, Shankar-Jaikishan to try him as a playback singer in Hindi films. Subir Sen sang just 28 songs in Hindi films in the span of around 12 years. Most of the songs he rendered became popular.

Subir Sen (24/07/1934 – 29/12/2015) was born in Assam and grew up in Guwahati where his father had a pharmacy business. He completed his matriculation from Guwahati. From the childhood, he was drawn towards music and this was the reason that made his father to shift to Kolkata after selling his pharmacy business. During his growing up days, he was highly influenced by the singing of Dhananjay Bhattacharya, Hemant Kumar and Talat Mehmood. When he started singing their songs in some programmes, the audience started appreciating his renditions. He felt that he can also sing like his favourite singers which made him to pursue the singing as a career.

Subir Sen enrolled himself in Marris College of Music (later renamed as Bhatkhande Music Institute), Lucknow. During the third year of his college, he received the first prize for singing a vilambit Khayal in raag Purvi. Later, he learnt Hindustani classical music from Acharya Chinmoy Lahiri, a vocalist in Hindustani classical music. On the advice of Acharya Chinmoy, Subir Sen learnt the Thumri singing from Usha Ranjan Mukherjee for over 2 years.

On an invitation from Guru Dutt, Subir Sen along with the music director, Sudhin Dasgupta shifted to Mumbai and became the part of the Guru Dutt’s Films for his film under production (probably for ‘Pyaasa’1957). However, though they were on the payroll of Guru Dutt Films, they never got opportunity to sing in his film. It is said that Guru Dutt sent Subir Sen to S D Burman for audition. He introduced himself as a singer who sang in the style of Hemant Kumar. S D Burman rejected him without taking his audition by asking him as to why he should use him when he can have the original voice of Hemant Kumar. (Source: Interview of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma on S D Burman).

While Sudhin Dasgupta returned to Kolkata, Subir Sen got an opportunity to sing for the first time in Hindi films under the baton of Shankar-Jaikishan who were impressed with the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar. The first song he sang in Hindi film was manzil wohi hai pyaar ki raahi badal gaye in ‘Kathputli’ (1957) picturised on Balraj Sahni. The song became very popular and was one of the three songs from ‘Kathputli’ (1957) to figure in the top 32 songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1958. In 1959-60, Subir Sen sang six songs in six films with six music directors (including one under the baton of Hemant Kumar), all of which became popular.

Subir Sen again came into the attention when his song, dil mera ek aas ka panchhi picturised on Rajendra Kumar (who was nick named as ‘Jubilee Kumar’), became even more popular than his first song, ranking 5th among the top 32 Hindi film songs of Binaca Geetmala for the year 1961.

With the kind of the early successes, Subir Sen must have dreamt of a bright future for him as a playback singer in Hindi films. But his discography in the table given below reveals that his playback singing career in Hindi films did not reach to a level to make a living out of it. In most of the films, he got the opportunity to sing only one song.

23 ab to aisa lagta hai Roop Sundari (1964) Solo Sardar Malik
24 jaago anjaani raajdulaari Ek Soorat Do Dil (1968) Aarti Mukherjee Bijan Pal
25 aah dil mein hai Rani Chandravati (1968, UR) Solo S N Tripathi
26 Ye pukaar kiske liye Rani Chandravati (1968, UR) Suman Kalyanpur S N Tripathi
27 sedin dujone dulechhinu bone (Bangla) Anubhav (1971) Solo Rabindranath Tagore
28 koi mera ho gaya Midnight (1972) Solo Subir Sen

The initial euphoria Subir Sen created in Hindi film music due to the resemblance of his voice with that of Hemant Kumar may have becoming a stumbling block in his playback singing career. It would be a natural response from the music directors that they would rather work with Hemant Kumar who had already established himself as a playback singer than Subir Sen. Also, producers, directors, actors and the film financiers/distributors have their own preferences for playback singers among the established ones.

Ashutosh Banerjee, music director who had composed many Bangla films and non-film songs for Subir Sen was of the view that while in Mumbai, Subir Sen started listening to a lot of western music during which Jim Reeves and Nat King Cole became his favourite singers. From Jim Reeves, he picked up the tonal quality and from Nat King Cole the drama in singing. In his subsequent renditions, Subir Sen was influenced by the styles of these two American singers.

Some changes in Subir Sen’s rendition style are evident in his later songs. For instance, in ‘dheere chalo zara’ from ‘Aas Ka Panchhi’ (1961), one can feel some shades of Mukesh in the song. In ‘dekho na jaaneman’ which he sang for Shammi Kapoor in ‘Boy Friend’ (1961), his voice sounds somewhat different giving a feel of Manna Dey. I have listened to some of his Bangla non-film songs and I feel that he had adapted to a style of rendition to sound somewhat different from Hemant Kumar’s voice. For examples, ‘oy ujjwal din’ and ‘pagol hawa’ (a rehash of non-film Bangla song originally sung by Jatileshwar Mukherjee and ‘na jaane tum’ from ‘Chhoti Si Baat’, 1976).

With his playback singing career in Hindi films getting stangnated, Subir Sen returned to Kolkata sometime in early 1970s. He recorded hundreds of Bengali modern and Rabindra Sangeet numbers over three decades. He also acted along with Uttam Kumar in Bangla film, ‘Momer Alo’ (1964) and in Hindi film “Anubhav’ (1971).

Subir Sen and also Dwijen Mukherjee could not create a place for themselves in Hindi films mainly because they were born with their voice boxes almost similar to Hemant Kumar. And both of them were the contemporary of Hemant Kumar and in competition with him. Also, they came at a time when the troika of the main male playback singers – Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and later Kishore Kumar had already well-established in Hindi film industry.

On the occasion of the 6th Remembrance Day of Subir Sen, I am presenting ‘chaand tale jhoom jhoom tirak rahi hai’ rendered by him with Suman Kalyanpur for the film ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963). The song is written by Shailendra which is set to music by Dattaram.

With this song, all the six songs of ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ have been covered in the Blog.

ik thokar mein uad jaayega
duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega
yeah

samjho na hamen tum patthar dil
seene mein hamaare pyaar bhi hai
naaz kisi kisi ki yaad bhi hai
ik sapnon ka sansar bhi hai
aa ha ha ha
aa aa aa aa
jo kuchh bhi haseen hai is jag mein
kuchh aur haseen kahlayega
duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega

har har bandhan ko tod ke jab
ik jashn manaayegi duniya
taaron ke singhaashan par jis din
insaan ko dikhaayegi duniya
ho ho ho
o o o o o
us din sabko rah rah ke mera
ye geet bahut yaad aayega
insaan ke iraadon ke aage
ambar bhi sar ko jhukaayega
ambar bhi sar ko jhukaayega
duniya ki kitaabon se ik din
mushkil ka naam mit jaayega

‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) was produced by Surinder Kapoor under the banner of Amar Chhaaya Films and was directed by Kedar Kapoor. The star cast included Geeta Bali and Pradeep Kumar in the lead role with the supporting cast of Agha, Vijaylaxmi, Siddhu, Sunder, Tun Tun, Mohan Choti, Ravikant etc. Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Om Prakash, Bhagwan, Kumkum, and Shyama made their guest appearances in the film. This was Surinder Kapoor’s maiden film as a producer.

I was wondering as to how Surinder Kapoor could manage to rope in Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor for the qawwali song in the film. It became clear when I came to know that Surinder Kapoor was the cousin of Prithviraj Kapoor. When he shifted to Mumbai from Peshawar in 1950, Prithviraj Kapoor helped him in getting his first job as an assistant to K Asif in ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960). Since the film took a lot of time to be completed, Surinder Kapoor left K Asif and became the Secretary to Geeta Bali. Kedar Kapoor, the film’s director was from Peshawar. Probably, he may also be related to Prithviraj Kapoor.

It was Geeta Bali who encouraged Surinder Kapoor to become a film producer. She arranged the finance, the crew and the cast. So, getting the guest actors for the qawwali song became an easy task for Surinder Kapoor. The film was launched in 1958 and got completed in 1963. The film did not fare well on the box office. This was the last released film of Geeta Bali.

‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) had six songs in the film written by Shailendra (5) and Anand Bakshi (1) which were set to music by Dattaram. Four songs have been covered on the Blog.

Here is the 5th song ‘Muhammad Shah Rangeele gaawat aaj prem raag’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by Manna Dey on the words of Shailendra. The video clip of the song is not available on any video sharing platform. So, it is difficult to know as to in which context, this song was picturised in the film. My wild guess is that the song may have been picturised on Agha in a comical situation using the bandish-based classical song.

Muhammad Shah ‘Rangeela’ was the Mughal emperor during 1719 to 1748. He was a patron of performing arts and music. His court had many musicians, the prominent among them being Niyamat Khan who used to compose bandishes under his pen name. ‘Sadarang’ and his nephew, Feroz Khan under the pen name of ‘Adarang’. Sadarang has been credited with the introduction of Khayal as a form of Hindustani classical music. He composed many Khayal bandishes for his desciples which included a few women from the harem of Muhammed Shah ‘Rangeela’.

There are some persons who are known by their work and not by their names. Niyamat Khan was one of them whose name is unknown for the present generation. Some of us may have listened to his khayal bandishes rendered by stalwarts like Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Ustad Amir Khan, Ustad Rashid Khan, etc without knowing that these were composed by Niyamat Khan ‘Sadarang’.

One of the Khayal bandish composed by Niyamat Khan was ‘Muhammad Shah rangeele re, tum bin main kya karoon badariya, nit na suhaawe’ in raag Miyan Ki Malhar in praise of Muhammad Shah. The song under discussion is based on this bandish with different ‘bole’ written by Shailendra and composed by Dattaram in raag ‘Miyan Ki Malhar’. It is rendered as ‘chhota khayal’.

By the way, Muhammad shah rangeele re from ‘Nadirshah’ (1968) was also based on the abovementioned bandish. Both ‘Nadirshah’ (1968) and ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’ (1963) took a long time to be completed and released. So, it is difficult to guess as to which one of two films got inspired from this bandish first.

Here are the details of the six songs that appeared in the blog on 4 February 2011:-

Blog Day :

4583 Post No. : 16200

So it is that day again. The day when we reach a blog century. Though the going is quite slow now a days, still we are regular (no DOT days since 2020) and so we keep clocking our blog centuries every five to six weeks or so.

This article is blog post number 16200. This century took us exactly 50 days to reach.

I have mentioned it in the past that I remain tension free on most days but I get a bit tensed up when the century post arrives, because we need to look for a special song for the occasion. And I began worrying about locating the special song only at the eleventh hour and 59th minute. 🙂 This is an old habit of mine. My preparation for Examinations also used to be on similar lines. 🙂

The song that I have chosen for the occasion has been on my radar for several months. I considered covering it on many occasions during the last few months, but I backed off every time. There were many reasons.

One main reason why I could not cover this song earlier was its lyrics. Noting down the lyrics of this song has been a great challenge, mainly because the words are totally unfamiliar. At the same time, the words are not gibberish. They have definite meanings. So effort was needed to try and note them down as well as one could.

The second challenge was writing about the song. It is a special song, at at the same time a lesser known song. People have not been able to appreciate this song because this song is difficult to locate and secondly because of lack of information about what makes this song special.

This song is from “Patraani”(1956). “Patraani”(1956) was produced by Shankarbhai Bhatt (the elder brother) and directed by Vijay Bhatt (the younger brother) for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Vyjayantimala, Pradeep Kumar, Omprakash, Shashikala, Durga Khote, David, Jeevan etc. in it. The story was written by Kanhaiyalal Maneklal Munshi.

The story, losely based on a real life story of 11th century has been narrated by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopedia, while discussing a previous song from the movie. Here is the story as narrated by him:-

King Karnadev Solanki, king of Gujrat(Pradeep Kumar) had many queens but no issues. The Rajmata(Durga Khote) insisted that he marry another girl after ascertaining astrologically her capability to give children.

The king had seen one princess in Somnath temple once and wanted to marry only her.But he does not know who she is. Actually she is princess Mrinal(Vyjayanti Mala) daughter of King Jai keshi(Ramesh Sinha) of Karnatak. She was on a Teerth yatra when she saw Karnadev. She also wanted to only marry him, but did not know who he was.

Munjal Mehta (David), Mahamantri of Karndev goes on a mission and soon finds out Mrinal. She is beautiful, but her skin becomes black in the sunlight. Munjal knows Karndev’s dislike of black. Mrinal is astrologically also fit. He tells her and shows the sketch of Karandev, after which she is happily ready to marry him.

They all travel to Gujarat, but during travel Mrinal’s skin becomes black. During marriage, there is a veil, but after marriage Karndev sees that she is black and rejects her.

She is good natured and becomes Raj mata’s pet. When the King falls sick, Mrinal serves him very well and slowly the King realises that outer skin colour does not make a person good or bad. He accepts her as she is and all’s well that ends well.

The movie was a musical blockbuster, with as many as ten songs in it. Nine songs have already been covered in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting Remarks
5560 Chandrma madbhara 2 March 2012 Lata solo. Based on Raag Shivranjani
11601 Arre koi jaao ree piya ko bulaao ree 27 November 2015 Three Mangeshkar sisters singing together
12206 Na jaane tum kaun meri aankhon mein sama gaye 12 July 2016 Lata solo
12453 Ho balma tum bedardi 15 October 2016 Lata solo
12521 Rang rangeeli pagiyaa baandhe aaye rituraaja 4 November 2016 C Ramchandra-Lata duet
12678 Dil gaya dard raha seene mein 10 December 2016 Lata solo
13758 Saat samandar paar haaye re mera sapnon ka sansaar 22 November 2017 Lata solo
15438 Kabhi to aa 15 February 2020 Lata solo
15812 Raaja pyaare mat karo pyaar ka mol 17 August 2020 Lata, Usha Mangeshkar duet

One can notice that the voice of Lata Mangeshkar was present in all the songs of the movie. Even the final song being discussed today contains her voice. So this movie was one of those special movies where one singer sang all the songs. All ten songs- in this case !

While most Hindi movie songs have classical music elements in them, the songs of “Patraani”(1956) were specifically so. Shankar Jaikishan, the most popular music directors of the golden era, seem to have composed the songs of this movie as a labour of love, rather than as a means to score another box office success. It appears that the songs were not promoted well during its time and they did not become as popular with music lovers of those days who already had many more popular songs to chose from.

The tenth and final song from the movie is listed in HFGK as “paawan ganga sir pe sohe”. The song begins with these words, and these words are among the few words that most music lovers can understand. Then the song gets transformed into a pucca classical song, namely Tarana. Tarana is a genre of pure classical Hindustani music which was created by Amir Khusro (1253–1325 AD). Amir Khusro was also the creator of a more popular form of semi classical music namely qawwaali. He was also the creator of Ghazal.

Unlike Qawwali and ghazal, Tarana is far less known and heard in Hindi movies and elsewhere. Hindi movies have had very few Taranas in them. One such tarana was covered by me in the blog in 2015 when I had started a series on Classical music. There I had given some information about Tarana. That song from “Ladki”(1953) was sung by Lata and it was picturised on Vyjyanti Mala.

The video of the final “Patrani”(1956) songs does not seem to be available, which is a shame. I am sure that the song, like the Tarana song from “Ladki”(1953) was picturised on Vyjyanmti Mala. I request our knowledgeable readers, who may have seen the movie, to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

The song is mentioned in HFGK as a Lata solo, but one can detect a male voice too who sings one full stanza of tarana bols. The song also has long passages sung by chorus, before Lata Mangeshkar resumes singing. Not just Shankar Jaikishan, even Lata Mangeshkar must have drawn considerable creative satisfaction in recording this song.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the male voice.

I have tried my level best to note down the lyrics of the song, but I have fallen short. I request our readers to help correct the lyrics wherever applicable.

Shailendra is the lyricist. If he actually came up with the tarana bols then that is a fantastic achievement for him. With this song, Shailendra completes 700 songs in the blog as a lyricist.

With this song, all the ten songs of “Patraani”(1956) are covered in the blog. The movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the past. The movie becomes the 1248th movie to get YIPPEED in the blog.

With this one song, now all the Shankar Jaikishan compositions in HFM, each and every Shankar Jaikshan movie from 1949 to 1968, viz from “Barasaat”(1949) to “Shikaar”(1968)-all 94 of them- have been YIPPEED in the blog. Now one will have to look at movies of 1969 to find the earliest Shankar Jaikshan movie not yet YIPPEED in the blog.

So, this one song helps tick many invisible boxes in the blog.

This blog has survived for more than 12 years, and it has survived the COVID 19 year as well. With so much of musical treasure already covered, and with so much of musical treasure still to be covered, I am sure this musical bandwagon will continue to see many more milestones in the days to come. I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose continued support and encouragement serves as the fuel for this musical bandwagon and keeps it moving.

“Mem Didi”(1961) was produced by L B Lachhman and directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for L B Films, Bombay. The movie had Lalita Pawar, Jayant, David, Tanuja, Kaysi Mehra, Dhumal,Rashid Khan etc in it.

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our inhouse encyclopaedia has done great research on this movie. He informs us that this movie was a blantant copy of Frank Capra’s “A pocketful of Miracles” (1961). To decades later, Hrishikesh Mukherjee came up with another remake of the movie called “Achcha Bura”(1983). He also informs us that the hero of “Mem Didi”(1961), Kaycee Mehra was actually K C Mehra. He played Hero in “Chhabili”(1960) as ell as “Mem Didi”(1961) and then left films. He joined Tata Steel and served there for 41 years retiring as a Deputy Managing Director. Subsequently he became Resident Director of M/s Shapoor ji Pallon ji.

“Mem Didi”(1961) had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Mem Didi”(1961) to appear in the blog. This somng is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

The song is picturised as a picnic song cum growing up song on a very young Tanuja and others.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Ram Hanuman Yudhh” (1957) was produced by R N Mandloi and directed by S N Tripathi for Ravikala Chitra Productions. This movie had Durga Khote, Manhar Desai, Nirupa Roy, Prem Adeeb, Babu Raje, Shalini, S. N. Tripathi etc in it.

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

Here are the details of the six songs already covered in the blog:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting Remarks
6548 Suna tu man ki been par (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 30 August 2012
7562 Aaj agar meri laaj gayee (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 26 February 2013
7567 Rakh laaj mere sindoor ki (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 27 February 2013

12869 Door gagan par chamken sitaare (Ram Hanuman Yudhh) 29 January 2017

I had discovered the seventh and final song nearly two years ago. I found this song such a special song that it deserved to be covered on a special. And that special occasion had just passed. So I decided to wait for the next year when the occasion would recur. On the next year too I missed he occasion and I decided to wait for another one year.

What is this occasion ? The occasion is the birth anniversary of Nirupa Roy ((4 January 1931 – 13 October 2004) which falls today (4 January 2020).

To most moviegoers, Nirupa Roy is associated with roles where she played mother of Amitab Bachchan. In quite a few of these movies, she ould get separated fro her family only to reunite in the last reel.

People of earlier generation would tell us that she as a Maa only towards the second half of her movie career. Prior to that she played lead roles. She often played a suffering wife in these movies but that as not all. In quite a few of her early movies she has played happy and assertive roles as well. Many of her earlier movies ere mythological or historical movies where she played a goddess or queen.

Many songs have been picturised on her during her days as a leading lady. Some of them have become iconic songs. The famous song, “o pawan veg se udne aale ghode” was lip synced by her.

The song under discussion is different ! People who have a particular image f Nirupa Roy in their mind will get a culture shock hen the watch the picturisation of this song.

It is a song here Nirupa Roy performs a dance ! Yes indeed. It is a classical dance setting where Nirupa Roy lip syncs in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. The song also has an unknon male voice that sings katthak bol.

Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

I request our knoledgeable readers to help identify the male singer as well as the actor lip syncing in the male voice.

with this song, all the seven songs of “Ram Hanuman Yudhh” (1957) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 97
———————————————————————————–

‘Jab Se Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963’ is an eligible movie under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ today (30 november 2020) as one of its songs was posted on 30.11.2010.

Though one song of this movie was also posted on 18.11.2010, we missed the opportunity of discussing its song on that day ten years later. Our dear Prakash ji had already sent lyrics for two songs to cover these two occasions. Today gives us another opportunity of covering a song from this movie under the “Blog Ten Year Challenge” series.

Following six posts were published this day ten years ago on 30 november 2010:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Jhoome re kali bhanwraa ulajh gayaa kaanton mein Naukri-1954 All songs covered
Hamko hanste dekh zamaanaa jalta hai Ham Sab Chor Hain- 1956 All songs covered
Aag lagaanaa kyaa mushkil hai Kangan-1959 All songs covered
Maane naa maane naa maane naa Saweraa-1958 All songs covered
Ye din din hain khushi ke Jabse Tumhe Dekha Hai-1963 03 songs posted
Hamse hoti muhabbat jo tumko Muhabbat Isko Kehte Hain-1965 All songs covered

Though the blog scored a ‘sixer’ on the last day of the month of that year 2010 it left ‘three balls’ without scoring a single run 😊 i.e. 27th, 28th & 29th November’2010 were the ‘dot’ days for the blog. Still it managed to hit a century with this ‘six’ on the last day of the month. Total score of posts of November’2010 is 105. (Things like this happen in Hindi movies or specially in ‘MKD’ movies 😊

Now, in the current month, the blog is still struggling at sixty-one posts till the time of writing of this post.

Let us just take a quick look at how the blog has so far been performing in the month of November in previous years since its ‘inception’;

S.No. Year No of posts

HFGK Vol-IV mentions the following seven songs in this movie, all written by Shailendra and composed by Datttram.

So far, only three songs from this movie ‘JAB SE TUMHE DEKHA HAI-1963’ have been posted on the blog; (highlighted with their links)

Muhammad Shaah rangeeley, gaavat aaj prem raag
Ham aapki mehfil mein bhoole se chale aaye 18.11.2010
Tumhe husn deke khudaa ne sitamgar banaaya (part-II)

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be presented on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle.

Let us enjoy today’s lovely nok jhonk song and close November’2020 on a happy note for the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ and move on to December …

If we look at the statistics of the month of November over the years, this will be the first November where number of posts cross fifties and do not not enter nineties. 😊 Out of twelve Novembers so far, seven have scored centuries, two closed in the forties, and three in nineties. This, the thirteenth November for the blog seems to be ending in the sixties today …

over to the song now …

Lyrics of this song have been sent by Prakashchandra.

arrey rey rey rey rey

ae dilruba
haaye haaye ye kya ho gayaa…aa
haaye haaye ye kya ho gayaa
dekho apni daayeen jeb mein
kya rakha hai is fareb mein
chhodo dhokha baar baar ka
kyon karte ho dhong pyaar ka

dil kho gayaa aa aa…aa aa…aa..hh

haaye haaye

mushkil ki raat mein
rehta tha saath mein
mera woh dil bholaabhala…aa
ho o o o o
chhootaa kis baat pe
nikla kyon haath se
hoga kahin kuchh ghotaalaa

dum bhar main sapnon mein kho gaya
itne mein dil paar ho gayaa
ye to duniya ka usool hai
chhoti si woh bhool bhool hai

dil kho gayaa aa..aa..aaa
dhoondhoon kahaan
dhoondhoon kahaan
ae dilruba
haaye haaye ye kya ho gayaa

hoye hoye hoye hoye hoye hoye
gham hai din raat ka
itni si baat ka
mera woh dil thha tumhaara aa
ho ho o
mera khayaal hai
mere mizaaz se dar ke chhupa hai bechaaraa

mera bigdaa haal dekhiye
behki behki chaal dekhiye
sheeshaa leke shaql dekhiye
mil jaayein to akal dekhiye

dil kho gayaa aa
dhoondhoon kahaan
dhoondhoon kahaan
ae dilruba
haaye haaye ye kya ho gayaa

ho ho o
anjaani raah par
khud se wo bekhabar
phirta tha aksar aawaaraa

alley alley alley alley alley alley
woh to naadaan thha
jag se anjaan thha
jaataa kahaan besahaaraa aa
shaayad uss ko saath mil gaya
chhupke woh Bambai chal diya

Bambai woh kis liye jaayega
kaun usey actor banaayega
dil kho gayaa aa
dhoondhoon kahaan
dhoondhoon kahaan
ae dilruba
haaye haaye ye kya ho gayaa…aa aa
haaye haaye ye kya ho gayaa
dekho apni daayeen jeb mein
kya rakha hai is fareb mein
chhodo dhokha baar baar ka
kyon karte ho dhong pyaar ka

dil kho gayaa aa aa…aa aa…aaa..hh
