Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 54
————————————————————————————–

This day Ten years ago viz 19th June’2012 saw the following songs getting posted on the blog:-

We can see from the above table that out of the four movies represented on this day ten years back, only one movie ‘Shart-1954’ have been able to cover all its songs on the blog. That means we have three movies viz. ‘Mangu-1954’, ‘Badnaam-1952’ and ‘Shrimati 420’ eligible for a posting a song from them today on the blog.

I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Badnaam-1952’. Lyrics for this song have been sent by Prakashchandra.

Today’s song is from the ‘1956’ movie ‘Sailaab’.

This movie is new to me except for its song Hai ye duniya kaun si ae dil mujhe kyaa ho gayaa , a song that I have listened to innumerable times from my ‘cassette collection years’. This song must be a well-known song from this movie and this was also posted on the blog long back on 21.10.2009.

“Sailaab-1956” was directed by Guru Dutt for ‘Emar Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Mukul Roy.

It had Geeta Bali, Abhi Bhattacharya, Bipin Gupta, Ram Singh, Smruti Biswas, Helen, Sulochana Devi, Moni Chatterjee, Rashid, Uma Devi, Agha Mirza, Nazeer Kashmiri, Krishnakant, and others.

Johny Walker had a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.01.1956.

Our in-house encyclopedia Shri Arunkumar ji has given a brief account of this movie while presenting the next song from this movie on the blog on 30.01.2017. I am reproducing the text from his post below.

Gautam (Abhi Bhattacharya), a rich young man goes to Assam to visit his father’s tea plantation. The plane in which Gautam is travelling is forced to make an emergency landing due to bad weather. Gautam gets hurt and suffers from amnesia. He falls in love with a young woman Kanchan (Geeta Bali) who responds to him even though she is part of a religious community that doesn’t allow its members to marry. Gautam’s father takes him back to Calcutta. Gautam’s mother dies and the shock of her death brings back Gautam’s memory. But as his memory returns he forgets Kanchan. Kanchan comes to Calcutta in search of Gautam and sees that he fails to recognize her. She returns to her community deciding to renounce the world. In time Gautam is able to recollect his association with her and he goes after her to Assam. The lovers are reunited.

In the above post with the song ‘aa gayi aa gayi aa gayi re’, Shri Arunkumar ji also discussed the producer and music director of this movie . Mukul Roy who was singer Geeta Dutt’s elder brother. Arunkumar ji has also shared other valuable information about the sister of Geeta Dutt i.e. Laxmi Roy who had sung a song in this movie.

This movie had nine songs which were composed to music by Mukul Roy who was also the producer of this movie. The task of lyrics writing for these nine songs was shared by Majrooh Sultanpuri (four songs), Shailendra( two songs), Madhukar Rajasthani(one song) and Hasrat Jaipuri (two songs).

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 Ye rut, ye raat jawaan, bekal dil ke armaan Shailendra Geeta Dutt
02 Tan pe rang sakhi, man mein rang sakhi Majrooh Sultanpuri Geeta Dutt, chorus

04 Hai ye duniya kaun si ae dil mujhe kyaa ho gayaa Majrooh Sultanpuri Hemant Kumar 21.10.2009

06 Chaand ke aansoo shabnam ban ke … Madhukar Rajasthani Geeta Dutt
07 Aa gayi, aa gayi, aa gayi re, raat rang bhar aa gayi Shailendra Geeta Dutt 30.01.2017
08 Om hari om… prabhu aayi pujarin tumhaare anganaa Majrooh Sultanpuri Geeta Dutt, chorus
09 Hai ye duniya kaun si ae dil mujhe kyaa ho gayaa Majrooh Sultanpuri Geeta Dutt 21.10.2009

(HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) in its footnote of the above movie-page noted that except song number 1 and 7, all other songs of this movie were recorded in February and April 1954. Though, this movie was passed by the Censor Board in 1956.

Song number 9 seems to be added later to this movie.

As per director Ravindra Dave the direction of the first four reels of this movie was done by him.)

Today we are going to listen to the third song from this movie which is sung by Geeta Dutt. Only the audio of this song is available. I guess this song must be a club-dance song.

Let us now listen to today’s song.


Song-Ye rut ye raat jawaan bekal dil ke armaan (Sailaab)(1956) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Mukul Roy

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 33
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago, viz 20 March 2022 saw as many as six songs from six different movies getting covered. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5660 Ghabra ke jo ham sar ko Mahal(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now

5665 Main teri Heer hoon teri taqdeer hoon Raftaar(1975) Movie YIPPEED by now

Five movies (out of six) whose songs were discussed on that date have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with just one movie that is not yet YIPPEED and so is eligible for blog ten year chllenge today (20 March 2022).

That movie is “Bhai Sahab”(1954). It was directed by Ravindra Dave for Pancholi Productions, Bombay. The movie had C.H.Atma, Purnima, Smriti Bishwas, Ratan Kumar, Jagdeep etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Bhai Sahab”(1954) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by C H Atma. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ninu Majumdar.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on C H atma himself who was a die hard K L Saigal follower and this movie was his attempt to keep making movies in K L Saigal style. Hindi movies by that time had moved on from Saigal era. It was the last such movie with K l Saigal style songs.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

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.

22 bujh gaya dil ka diya Jaadui Anghooti (1964) Solo Suresh Kumar
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.

‘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.
