Time to Yippeee another film. Today’s film is ‘Humjoli’ – not the one from 1970, but the one from way back in 1946. This film has 10 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Nine songs have already been showcased here on our blog. The last song for this film was posted in November last year. In that post, Atul ji has commented that the 10th song appears to be elusive, and is yet to be uploaded online. Today, as I checked for this song, I am unable to track it anywhere as yet. I could be wrong, as I have been earlier, maybe just limited by the way I searched for it. So I decided to upload this from my collection.

As per the Geet Kosh, the songs for this film have been written by Anjum Pilibhiti. Once again, not too much information is available about this songwriter, other than he was born in 1917 in the town Pilibhit; that he had a talent for poetry right from childhood, and that he got his first break in the industry with producer director Mehboob Khan, in the film ‘Najma’ from 1943. The songs of this film became very popular and contributed to the commercial success of this film. With that, Anjum became a regular songwriter for films produced by Mehboob Khan. In his entire career, he wrote approximately a little over hundred songs in about two dozen films. His last recorded credit as a songwriter is for the film ‘Akaash Pari’ from 1958. His notable films are ‘Humayun’ (1945), ‘Zeenat’ (1945), ‘1857’ (1946), ‘Anmol Ghadi’ (1946), ‘Anokhi Ada’ (1948), ‘Vidya’ (1948) etc.

The music for this film was created by Hafiz Khan (not to be confused with Khan Mastaana i.e. Hafeez Khan Mastaana, as many online and print sources do).

The star cast for this film includes Noorjehaan, Jairaj, Ghulam Mohammed, Jillo Bai, Mukri, Zeenat, Agha Jaan, Shabnam, Hussaini, Majid, amongst others. The film is produced under the banner of K Abdullah Productions, Bombay and is jointly directed by Ismail Meman and Lukman Ahmed.

The earlier posted nine songs of this film are listed below.

1.       Ye Desh Hamaara Pyaara Hindustan Jahaan Se Nyaara
2.       Koyaliya Boley Jiya Mora Doley
3.       Mori Bipat Suno Girdhaari
4.       Dukh Dard Se Jag Mein Koi Azaad Nahin Hai
5.       Raaz Khulta Nazar Nahin Aata
6.       Phoolon Mein Nazar Ye Kaun Aaya
7.       Kab Tak Teri Duniya Mein Ye Andher Rahega
8.       Jag Ki Sewa Kar Le Bande
9.       Wafaayen Meri Aazmaaoge Kab Tak

 

Although not indicated anywhere in the Geet Kosh, the last song in the above list “Wafaaye Meri Aazmaaoge Kab Tak” is reportedly written by Shams Azimabadi, as per the person who has uploaded that song online.

In terms of the storyline, I have not been able to locate any information so far. I request other knowledgeable and more resourceful friends and readers to please add more information about this film and its songs.

About this song too, there seems to be a little difference about the name of the singer. As we listen to the audio clip, the voice sounds quite much that of Shamshad Begum. This is also the opinion expressed by some other friends. However, the Geet Kosh lists the singer’s name for this song as Noorjehaan. It is possible that the error may be due to what may be printed in the booklets and other print material used as the source for information. Given that Noorjehaan was the leading lady of this film, and given the content of this song, it is my personal opinion that this song would not possibly have been performed on screen by the leading lady. And since Noorjehaan sang playback mostly for her own self, this song’s playback credit to Noorjehaan is most likely an error. However, the other side of the argument also cannot be dismissed as is – which says that the possibility for the on screen voice and the voice on 78 rpm record could be different, as is the case in some known instances. So once again, I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information to clarify / confirm the correct situation as far as this song is concerned.

With this post, we close the account for this song on our blog – with 10 perfect hits to the boundary. Time to sing the ‘Yippeee’ ditty once again. 🙂

This article is written by our dear Atul ji. You must be wondering, why this change in presentation style today. Well, this post is a very, very, very special occasion, or rather a momentous occasion, for our blog and for Atul ji. It is appropriate that this introduction and announcement be made on his behalf. 

THIS  IS  ATUL  JI’s  10,000th  POST  ON  THIS  BLOG.

This is a milestone, in comparison to which all our earlier milestones and celebrations pale in significance. A single-handed dedicated effort relentlessly in progress for the past almost nine years. I am sure it will take some time for all of us, for the significance and eminence of this event to sink in.
More special posts by the members of our bandwagon are in planning, starting tomorrow. So please keep connected and be a witness to this remarkable celebration.

As regulars are aware, I am based at Izatnagar, Bareilly at present which happens to be located between Delhi and Lucknow. In fact, this place is equidistant from both these cities. This fact had been commented upon by several regulars. Our Lucknow based regular namely Mr Avadh Lal even commented that I needed to visit Lucknow and meet the Lucknow based music lovers.

So this is the Yippeee song for today. I had promised Atul ji that I would do both the debut and the Yippeee songs today. The debut was easy, but getting to the Yippeee turned out to be a ‘tedhi kheer’ today.  Atul ji has shared with me a reference list which contains information about the near-Yippeee films. But then cross referencing and searching for the last missing songs becomes quite a job.  Anyway, finally I have a song that was blocking the Yippeee for the 1948 film ‘Ziddi’, just because it was not available online, and not available easily otherwise. Thankfully I am able to locate it in my collection and have uploaded the song online today.

APNI IZZAT (1952) seems to be an obscure film as not much information about the story of the film is available on the internet.  Harishchandra Pictures under which the film was produced was not a big banner. Nanabhai Bhatt directed the film.  The star cast included Motilal and Munawwar Sultana in the lead role with Gope, Yakub, Agha, Yashodhara Katju, Sulochana Chatterjee, Raj Mehra, David etc in the supporting roles. The impressive star cast indicates that it was not a ‘B’ grade movie.

Sometimes, things can’t get more rare than this. As we look for rare combination of artists, and especially singers, we come across combinations where two artists have worked together in a song, once or maybe twice in the entire history of Indian cinema. This song today, is one such song. It is a duet, rather I should correct myself, it is a trio of singers. There are two female voices, and one male voice. The male voice is not identified, even in the Geet Kosh listings. The female voices are Shamshad Begum and Hamida Bano. And the year is 1948.

The Voice of Mukesh #69
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film industry has seen many stars, who, by logical analysis, should not have been. Let me mention the names of four male singers, who have become legends now – Saigal Sb, Rafi Sb, Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Besides all four of them being singers who have rendered songs that have become timeless in their essence and popularity, there is one more common thread that runs through their lives. None of these four had any recognized formal training in classical music. And yet, their voice, their renditions, the emotional alchemy contained therein – has an element of something that can only be attributed to providence.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ढ’
“ढोलक को खूब बजाओ, जानी को खूब नचाओ”

Today’s alphabet letter has been the most elusive to locate. Statistically, ‘ढ’ is one of the lesser used letters, and so, the songs starting with words starting with this alphabet are comparatively fewer in number. As I was poring through the song lists from various sources, the search always ended with just three songs starting with ‘ढ’. And incidentally, these three are well known songs, and are already posted on our blog. The search through the lists, whether from Geet Kosh or other sources, is sometimes a problem, because at times a leading couplet appears in the beginning, and ‘mukhda’ of the song appears in the later part of the title. Searching for such words in the title is a difficult and tedious task. But after some extra effort I was able to identify this song. Then I went back into the Geet Kosh again, and confirmed that the ‘mukhda’ of this song indeed starts with the word ‘ढोलक’.

‘ऊ’
“ऊंची एड़ी है मांग टेड़ी टेड़ी दुपट्टा रंगदार कर के”

I am glad that I posted this song when I did. As per my search, this is possibly the last song of Rafi Sb that starts with ‘ऊ’, and not yet posted on our blog. Just made it by cat’s whiskers. Otherwise, I would have been expressing regrets, just like for ‘ई’.  🙂

Remembering Shamshad Begum on the second anniversary of her passing away (23rd April 2013). Born in Lahore on 14th April 1919, Shamshad Begum had an inclination towards singing right from her school days. Her school principal impressed with her singing, made her sing the classroom prayers, something which Naushad captilised elegantly in ‘Dard’ (1947) for a group song.

Ok so now we know – प्यार किसे कहते हैं। (what is this thing we call love). Explained quite lucidly in this song.

jabse mili teri meethi mohabbat
chocolate ka khaana chhod diya

Discovering your sweet love
Have forsaken even chocolate 

Aah, what a sublime sacrifice, forsaking the delicious trappings of this world, all for having found love.  Nothing, no other sacrifice could be more convincing.
