Blog Day :

4500 Post No. : 16037

Welcome all to this post, which should have come yesterday. But as they say ‘it is better late than never’ and as we on the blog say ‘it is never too late (even if the post comes after a long gap (ranging from a week to a month) of a particular special day).
😊
In any case we will be having a song to enjoy, a look-back (or glance? 😊) on the yesteryears or a brief journey ‘down memory lane’ …

I will directly come to the point now and clear the suspense that yesterday 11th November’2020 was the eighty-fourth (born on 11.11.1936) birthday of the gorgeous, beautiful, (plus sober, decent?), cheerful, ever smiling and ‘chulbuli’ actress Mala Sinha.

On the blog we today belatedly wish her a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I got to watch many of her movies from the ‘golden era’ or ‘black & white’ era and later many of her movies from the ‘colored’ era too. I am not going to list them all here because it will be a long list. I would only like to say that I do not remember any single movie of her ‘where I have not liked her performance’. I always like her screen presence and also her appearances in the songs or song sequences.

When I was looking for information about her initial career, I got to learn that she was an approved singer of ‘All India Radio’ but never got to playback singing in movies.
Ot of the twentythree Bangla movies she acted in, she was paired with Uttam Kumar in seven movies. Interested readers can visit for more interesting information on her on ‘wiki’ here.

On the occasion of her birthday I am going to present a song picturized on her from the movie ‘Rivaaj-1972’ which I came across recently. After listening to the song I totally fall in love with this song.

‘Rivaaj-1972’ was directed by T. Prakash Rao for ‘Sona Films, Madras’. (This movie was dedicated to the memory of the great K. Asif)

It was presented by H. Prasann Chand Nahar. K.C. Bokadia was the producer of this movie.

It had Mala Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar (the sub title for Sanjeev Kumar mentions ‘President award winner), Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Jr Mehmood, Baby Gauri and Zeb Rehman.
They were supported by Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Jayshree T., Pandri Bai, Mukri, Mrs. Shaukat Kaifi Azmi, Raj Kishore, Swaraj Kumar, Subrato and others.

The story of this movie was written by R. Venkatachalam. Its dialogues were written by Kaifi Azmi.
Editing of this movie was done by R. Bhaskaran.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.08.1972.

The movie had eights songs (including a multiple version song) written by Kaifi Azmi, Indeevar, Hasrat Jaipuri, Anjaan, S.H. Bihari and Neeraj. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur were the playback singers for this movie.

Here is the list of the eight songs of this movie and the songs already posted have been added with their link;

Song Lyricist Posted On
Main teri prem deewaani meera Neeraj Being covered in this post
Tujh mein hoon main mujh mein hai tu S.H. Bihari 09.07.2013
Pyaara pyaara sabse nyaara aanewaala hai koyi hamaara Indeevar
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (male version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (female version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Lagey koi lottery yaa jackpot lagey Anjaan 30.01.2015
Jalaa do jalaa do jaalaa do duniya ko jalaa do Kaifi Azmi 06.11.2020
Phoolon sa mahka huaa ye reshmi tan mera Anjaan

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Today’s song is picturized on Mala Sinha where she is lip-syncing in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Sanjeev Kumar and many others are also seen in the picturization of the song which happens in a temple (the famous Meera temple of Udaipur, as mentioned in the ‘wiki’ page of this movie ‘Rivaaj-1972).

The beautiful lyrics for today’s song are by Neeraj ji.

When I listened to the song for first time around a week or ten days back, I was totally taken up by this song and fall in love with it. It grows upon us if we listen to it again and again.
This beautiful composition of Shankar-Jaikishan is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and I must say what I mentioned for Mala Sinha that I have never came across a single Suman Kalyanpur song which I had not liked and enjoyed.

With the song Suman Kalyanpur has now four hundred song on the blog. Still a long to go to cover her remaining songs. It is still below half way mark if we consider the total 857 songs sung by her in Hindi movies. Today happens to be the 4500th day for the blog. Suman Kalyanpur completing her 400th song in the blog on the 4500th day for the blog sounds quite a befitting occasion.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song …
Ed note:-Moreover, this article is the 300th article for Avinash Scrapwala as a guest contributor in the blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 111 # Debutant movie-Saazish-1975
——————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1975 movie ‘Saazish’.

This movie is making its debut on our blog. It is part of one of my ‘projects’ of bringing ‘movies with same title’ on the blog. We already have a movie with this title released in ‘1959’ represented on the blog. (Incidentally this movie was also launched on the blog with a lyrics contribution sent by me then 😊) (isme meri koi saazish nahin thhi 😊)

There are were two more movies with the same title ‘Saazish’ made in 1988 & 1998, not yet represented in the blog.

‘Saazish-1975’ was directed by Kalidas for ‘Maya Movietone, Bombay’. Kalidas was also the producer of this movie. It had Saira Banu, Dharmendra, Dev Kumar, Rajendra Nath, Madan Puri, Jagdish Raj, Murad, Gayjee, David, Helen etc. Iftekhar and Paintal make special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Ranjan Bose. And screenplay and dialogues were written by Ramesh Pant. Editing of this movie was done by Waman Bhonsle and Guru Dutt Shirali.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.02.1975.

‘Saazish-1975’ has five songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Here are the details of the songs of this movie in order of their appearance (which should be according to the appearing of these songs in the movie) HFGK Vol-V 1971-1980.

Song Singer/s
Na taaj chaahiye na takht chaahiye, tera pyaar chaahiye har waqt chaahiye Asha Bhonsle
Wo bade khushnaseeb hote hain aap jiske kareeb hote hain Mahendra Kapoor, Suman Kalyanpur
Haay phir zaraa zaraa koi teer sa chubha, dil to huaa fidaa Sharda
Tujhe hamne chaaha apna samajh kar Mahendra Kapoor, Saira Banu
How sweet dada ji Asha Bhonsle, Ranu Mukherjee

As I mentioned above, this movie was in my ‘wish-list’ for the ‘project’ of introducing ‘movies with same titles’ on the blog. However, somehow, I had forgotten about this movie due to my attention to other posts. Our dear Prakash ji had also recently sent two songs from this movie for different occasions. But I am leaving them for future posts, because I was looking for a Suman Kalyanpur song composed by Shankar-Jaikishan (for obvious reasons -😊- regulars on the blog and those interested in statistics can guess it easily 😊).

So, today I am presenting a song from this movie sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Suman Kalyanpur.

This song is picturized on Dharmendra and Saira Banu (at foreign locations I guess) where Dharmendra is lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice and Saira Banu is lip syncing in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur (obviously 😊).

I have not watched this movie and would like to request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie, its details and its song please.

With the today’s song ‘Saazish-1975’ makes its debut on the blog … (😊 ye zaroor meri saazish ka hissaa hai 😊)

let us now enjoy today’s song from “Saazish”(1975)…

Hullo Atuldom

“Satta Baazaar” (1959) was a Nagina Films production. It was directed by Ravindra Dave and starred Meena Kumari and Balraj Sahni in the lead with Johnny Walker leading the supporting cast of Ramayan Tiwari, Asit Sen, Suresh, Uma Dutt, Narmada Shankar etc. Vijaya Choudhury played Balraj Sahni’s daughter Kala. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and Hasrat Jaipuri, Shailendra, Indeevar and Gulshan Bawra were the lyrics in-charge. Hemant Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, and Suman Kalyanpur were the playback singers.

Of the movie’s eight songs, four have been posted on the blog. The movie’s best and most popular song was posted on 21st February 2009:- Tumhen yaad hoga. The next song suno jee aankde ka dhandha came in 2012. It was followed by Chaandi ke chand tukdon ke liye. Zara thherhro jee Abdul Gaffa was the last song posted. It has a wonderful post by our in-house encyclopedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji. He has given us the story of the movie too in there along with the biography of actor Suresh (real name Nazim Ahmed as Sir has mentioned in his post).

Today’s song I discovered when I was looking for a song, when I was writing a post for music director Kalyanji’s anniversary in August and filed it away for use on another occasion. The occasion is the birth anniversary of Badruddin Jamaluddin Kazi popular as Johnny Walker.

He was born in Indore and came to Bombay (as Mumbai used to be called) to earn a living and help look after his family. He took up various jobs before becoming a Conductor in Bombay’s BEST Undertaking. His anecdotes are there in this this video where he speaks to Tom Alter about how he modulated his voice for enhancing his characters. That is an interesting video. He speaks about how Balraj Sahni found his way of going about his job good enough to recommend him to Guru Dutt.

Today’s song is a dance with folk art in it. It has Johnny Walker and Sabita Chatterjee (in Marathi getup) teasing each other on the occasion of Vijaya Choudary’s engagement.

Let us think of Johnny Walker entertainer and enjoy Mohd Rafi singing as if Johnny himself is singing in typical Marathi folk style. Suman Kalyanpur is the voice for Sabita Chatterjee.

Blog Day :

———————————————–————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 89
———————————————————————————–

This date 29 october 2020 is a different kind of blog ten year challenge. It was on this day ten years ago that I met Raja face to face in Nagpur where I was based at that time. All these days I was under the impression that the meeting had taken place recently, but no, time has sprinted away faster than Usain Bolt, and TEN years have elapsed after that memorable evening. .

For those who came in late, I was a member of a by now defunct cricket forum called Pakcricbuzz under the ID of squarecut. I used to discuss cricket of 1970s in that forum. One fine day, this new member called Raja joined and he started commenting on my posts exclaiming that he was in the same age group and he too had similar memories about cricket of 1970s. I initially thought that he was a Pakistani with surname of Raja (like Wasim Raja and Rameez Raja) but later I found that he was an Indian.

After a few days, I stumbled upon “introduction” section of that forum, where I found discussion about a new cricket forum by an Indian poster. I visited that forum called cricforum. That was in may 2005. It was quite an inactive forum at that time, but I felt comfortable there mainly because it was a forum of Indians. Two weeks later, I found that same person Raja also joining cricforum. Soon the forum began to buzz with great activity.

The forum had moderators and administrators based in Europe and USA and they needed an India based moderator. So I was made an moderator there and an announcement was made that “Atul Bhai is our new moderator.” Members of the forum congratulated me, and that included Raja too. So your name is Atul, he stated. My ID was squarecut and so it was this announcement that made Raja aware about my name.

This forum did not just discuss cricket, it discussed other topics as well, and people there had a unique kind of sense of humour which was described there as “muppetry”. Whenever India lost in cricket, which was quite often, members would roast Indian cricketers in posts that were scathing and at the same time quite funny. Then there was this person Ravi, the owner of the site, who would write hard hitting reviews of Hindi movies that were great fun to read. This person Ravi incidentally has written a guest post in this blog as well. This article gives us some idea about his sense of humour. Even I have covered him in the blog in one article on his pet-a wolf dog. I rate this article as one of the most satisfying articles written by me.

Some music lovers there began to discuss music under a subsection called Geetmala. There music loving members would write articles on a music theme. I wrote a few articles, on themes like Railway songs in Hindi movies. Others such as Raja also came up with his own theme.

It was during late 2007 and early 2008 that I was exposed to the concept of blogging. I opened a blog on blogspot platform where I started writing similar theme based articles. I wrote 50 long articles there which did not get the kind of traffic that I expected. Soon enough, I discovered wordpress platform, which I found far more easy for blogging. It was on this platform that I began to write my comments of Hindi film songs, taking up one song at a time. And soon enough, this became my main blog.

When I informed others about my blogs, some of them visited them and left notes of encouragement. Raja’s comments were especially prized ones for me, because he wrote long and elaborate comments that served as just the kind of encouragement that any budding blogger/ poster needs.

As mentioned earlier, Raja and I were members of cricforum. Raja actually met a few regulars of that forum, including Ravi, the owner of that forum. So Raja was already into “gangouts” of cricforum. Incidentally, this term “Gangout” is coined by Raja. So far this term has not found its way into Dictioneries and it is found only in this blog.

Raja was based in Holland and he would regularly visit India to meet his family members. By 2010, Raja too had become a moderator and subsequently an administrator in that forum. I too had become an adminisrator. During october 2010, Raja was planning to visit India, and another administrator called Asterix too was planning to visit India. This person Asterix was Nagpur based, and he saw a good opportunity for a get together at Nagpur. He invited a few members to come visit Nagpur. Raja was the one who agreed. So Raja boarded a train from Bangalore and arrived at Nagpur on 28 October 2010. He was recived at the Nagpur station by Asterix who took him to his home to stay with him. Raja, in those pre whatsapp days posted his status in cricforum- “Arrived Nagpur. Feeling happy. Looking forward to meet Atul.”

At Nagpur, I lived in Railway locality (called Mount Road)close to Old Vidarbha Cricket stadium. This stadium had hosted international matches till a few years ago, before the bigger stadium at Jamtha came up. I lived alone, while my wife and daughter lived across the Maharashra MP border 250 KM away. I had a very good internet connection (provided by Railways) and I also had inverter connection. So I was connected on internet round the clock even if it was raining outside and power was off. No wonder I was at my most productive as a blogger those days.

Raja, asterix and another person (Asterix’s relative) arrived at my home in the evening. I received a bear hug from Asterix. The two of us were so like minded in cricketing matters (including our “love” for Bangladeshi cricket. 🙂 ) in the forum.

After some cricket discussion, the two of them expressed their interest in my blogging process. So I took them to the room that I had earmarked for this purpose. This small room had a laptop on a computer table. When I look back at it now, I realise that I used to note down the lyrics directly from the computer. I did not use headphone or external speakers those days. Later I began to use headphones and that helped a lot. But using headphones was not yet started by me and I relied on listening to the tinny voice emanatng from the laptop. That laptop was a 2007 model, with windows XP in it.

The blog by that time had 3154 posts, a far cry from the current tally of over 16000 writeups. Many blog concepts, now taken for granted had not yet evolved. Even guest posts were in their infancy. Raja, the first guest poster in the blog had written his (and blog’s) first guest post on 26 june 2010 (blog post number 2565). Raja’s most recent guest post was the writeup for 3000th song of the blog- on 20 september 2010. It was his 31st guest post in the blog. 31 guest posts in less than three months- Raja was in a rich vein of writing form those days. 🙂

My collection of video CDs, audio CDs etc were strewn all over the place which I showed them as my musical collection. I can never arrange them systematically, no matter how half heartedly I try. 🙂 I also tried to bluff telling them that what was visible was only a part of my collection. 🙂

I had one thing with me that was quite a prized possession though. It was a diary of 1974, that I got hold of in 1975. In that diary I noted down lyrics of songs written from radio. I needed to listen to a song a few times before I could get the full lyrics right. It had about 200 plus song lyrics. That diary was also the place where I would note down scores of test matches played those days. I showed them the score card of the Port of Spain test where India scored 406/4 in the fourth innings to win the test. Raja was suitably impressed with that diary.

We spent an hour and half or so at my place. Those days we did not have cameras on mobile phones. People carried handycams. Raja had brought one such handycam. I had asked a couple of my staff to be present. One of them took our photos which Raja later put up on our cricket forum.

After one hour and half or so, we went to a nearby restaurant for dinner. Asterix, a native of Nagpur knew various places in Nagpur quite well. Our discussion continued during that time as well. Raja told us that he had watched the movie “Akeli Mat Jaiyyo”(1963) with very high expectations but he felt badly let down. 🙂 Raja has subsequently learnt to keep his expectations low while watching Hindi movies. 🙂

While discussing musical matters and bloggers, we discussed Greta (Memsaab) and her blog. Raja mentioned that Greta’s birthday fell a few days ago. We also discussed the fact that her birthday fell so close to that of Shammi Kapoor that she was a big fan of.

Those were the days when the blog followed the concept of “farmaish”. Farmaish page was a popular page of the blog. Raja himself was a big farmaish sender. Raja had sent lots of farmaishes in the blog farmaish page. I asked him for a farmaisdh face to face- easily the first such farnmaish for the blog. Raja chose the song “Baar baar din ye aaye” and dedicated it to Greta. :).

After dinner, Raja and Asterix dropped me back at my place at about 10:45 PM or so and thus ended a memorable evening / night for me.

Next day, I posted that article on Raja’s farmaish where I described this meeting in brief. This aricle received several comments including that of Raja as well.

Raja in his comment to this post wrote:-

As Atul says, the two of us finally managed to meet each other. It was really memorable for me too. I have long admired Atul’s witty comments, not just on this blog but also on our cricket forum. He has these one-liners that I call Atulisms. ??

We had a very nice time together. Atul walked me through the process he goes through to post songs on his blog. We discussed other stuff too – including a diary he used to maintain way back in 1976, with handwritten cricket scorecards and Hindi film songs. Those were pre-internet days, so every piece of info we could gather from any source was very valuable. Indeed Atul and I can relate to a lot of things – I used to also maintain cricket statistics in this manner. 🙂 🙂

Over dinner, Atul asked me for a song farmaish “on the spot”. This birthday song was fresh in my mind – I remember searching for it a few days earlier on his blog and not finding it. It is my favourite birthday song – I love Rafi’s voice in this, I love the picturisation, I love the lyrics.

I did not expect Atul to turn this around so quickly on the blog. Thanks a lot, Atul.

Four years later, I described this visit in more detail during the run up to our 10K post, when I wrote about Raja in this post. There I have quoted what Raja wrote about this visit in cricforum. Here are his reminiscences:-

I came over from Bangalore to Nagpur to meet Asterix and Atul.
I first met Asterix on the 28th evening (he picked me up from the station).
We then arranged to meet Atul the following evening (Friday – 29th).

We went over to Atul’s place. Very nice place – Atul has people at his beck and call for his household work. * jealous *

Anyway, it was a very memorable experience.

Already meeting Asterix the previous evening was a great feeling – and now meeting Atul also was just amazing.
We discussed a lot of stuff – mostly about CF of course. And about Atul’s song blog.

Asterix and Atul also expressed concern about the increasing dominance of Bangladesh on the cricket scene and how it could impact minnows like BCCI who are in the same group in the World Cup. ?? Personally I think they were more concerned about the impact on a certain cricket forum. ??

Atul then showed us how he builds up his song blog – from a blog owner’s perspective.
It was fascinating.

We also got to see some of his VCD collection. More than 150 VCDs – most of them old (forgotten) Hindi movies. These provide the raw material for his song blog to a large extent. And I am informed by Atul that this is only a part of his collection – he has much more.

The evening was already going very well – but then it went many notches higher for me when Atul showed us something else.
This really brought tears (of nostalgia) to my eyes.

He showed us a diary that he used to maintain in 1976.

In those days, he used to write down cricket scorecards of various matches going on at that time.
Seeing the names of Gavaskar, Gaekwad, Vishwanath – written in Atul’s handwriting – really made me remember those days.

I got into a major nostalgia session – Asterix cut me short (like he often does ?? ), suggesting that we could continue the discussion over dinner. ??
(Actually we had another friend with us – not a CF person – and Asterix, understandably, did not want him to get bored).

In this diary, Atul also used to write down Hindi songs. Movie, singers, music directors – and full lyrics. As much as he could capture at that time from radio. Remember these were pre-Internet days, these were days when you really had to search and hunt for info that is readily available nowadays. You had to listen to a song umpteen times before you could get it right.

I think this passion is what has now morphed into Atul’s blog. Different times, new technology – but same, burning passion.

We then went out for dinner. By then it was a little late – we dropped Atul back at his place and returned to Asterix’s place (where I was staying), with very fond memories of our meeting.

Thank you, Atul. It was a very memorable evening. 29th October 2010.

I can barely believe that ten years have past since that memorable evening. It is true. We all, as well as the blog, are ten years older since that day.

In a way, it is a different kind of Blog Ten Year Challenge. I posted a song from a movie that day. Let me post another song from the same movie ten years later.

Following songs were covered in the blog ten years ago on this date (29 october 2010):-

Blog Post number Song Movie Year of release Posting time Remarks
3149 Teri nazar mein main rahoon meri nazar mein tu 1857 1946 7:19 AM Movie YIPPEED by now

3153 Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai magar main keh nahin saktaa Bachpan 1963 9:29 AM 3 songs covered out of 7

Out of two eligible movies for Blog Ten Year Challenge today, the first movie “Jalpari”(1952) has already been taken up earlier in the day. So that leaves us with “Bachpan”(1963) as the other eligible movie.

“Bachpan”(1963) was directed by Nazar for New Panchratan pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Menka Irani, Saleem, Manorama, David, Daisy Irani, Bhudo Advani etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past. Iconic Rafi song Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai magar main keh nahin saktaa was discussed on the blog on this day ten year ago.

The remaining four songs are lesser known songs. Some are even unavailable. Out of the available songs, the song under discussion shines on its own merit and deserves to be better known among music lovers. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisatiuon of this song. The song is an ideal song to be listened to at night. It is a song that firmly belongs to the league of what I call “Chhaayaageet” songs.


Song-Mere naina mad ke pyaale (Bachpan)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Mere naina mad ke pyaale
Mere naina mad ke pyaale
koi aaj dil sabhaale
koi aaj dil sabhaale
main jahaan jahaan se guzri
wahin ho gaye ujaale
Mere naina mad ke pyaale

jo nazar milaaye mujh se
wohi hosh apne khoye
wohi hosh apne khoye
jise dekh loon main hans ke
wo khushi se mera hoye
wo khushi se mera hoye
use badh ke baandh le phir
mere gesu kaale kaale
mere naina mad ke pyaale
koi aaj dil sambhaale
main jahaan jahaan se guzri
wahin ho gaye ujaale
mere naina mad ke pyaale

bujhe dil ko roshni de
mere tan ke ujle saaye
mere tan ke ujle saaye
ke huyi shama jo raushan
to patange ghir ke aaye
to patange ghir ke aaye
ke amar rahenge mar kar
mujhe pyaar karne waale
mere naina mad ke pyaale
koi aaj dil sambhaale
main jahaan jahaan se guzri
wahin ho gaye ujaale
mere naina mad ke pyaale

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 107 # Tribute to Sahir Ludhianvi #
——————————————————————————–

Today 25th October’2020 is the fortieth Remembrance Day of poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. He was born on 08th March’1921 and that will mark hundred years of his stepping out on this planet earth.

Sahir Ludhianvi left this mortal world on 25th October’1980 due to heart attack when he was playing cards with his friends.

Today remembering Sahir Ludhianvi and paying him a tribute on the blog I am presenting a song penned by him for the ‘1977-movie- Jaagriti’. As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie was first titled as ‘Ajab Teri Sarkar’ and even its song records were released by this title. I think that affected one song of the movie which was supposed to be in four parts, but now only one of its parts is available.

“Jaagriti-1977” was directed by Rajendra Bhatia for ‘Jai Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Vimal Bhatia and Naresh Malhotra. It had Nutan, Vinod Mehra, Reena Roy, Master Satyajeet, Prem Chopra, I.S. Johar, Paintal and Asrani, with Krishnakant, Lily Chakravarty, Padma Chawhan, Ashoo and Junior Mehmood. They were supported by Ram Mohan, Karan Dewan, Sushil Bhatnagar, Birbal, Mounto, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Brook Bond, Jugnu, Aditya Sharma, Manjeet, Salim, Rajesh, Raj Bachhan, Master Ripple, Master Ravi, Manmohan, Aarti, Ram Avtar, Narbada Shankar and Raaj Kishore.

Jayshree T and Helen make special appearances in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Sharad Pilgaonkar and screenplay was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.03.1977.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Minoo Puroshottam, and Dilraj Kaur were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Two songs of this movie sung by Asha Bhonsle noted long back are ready with us, however I when I came across this song sung by Suman Kalyanpur I selected it for today’s presentation for ‘special’ reasons. It’s a song praising to almighty and sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

I hope you will like the song too.

With today’s song this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ makes its debut of the blog (and also join the same titles of movies released in ‘1949’ & ‘1954’. There was one more movie with the same title released in ‘1992’.

With the today’s movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ making its debut on the blog, all movies where Sahir Ludhianvi had written lyrics for movies released from 1971-1980 are now represented on the blog.

24 Chehre Pe Chehra 1980 N. Dutta
25 Insaaf Ka Taraazu 1980 Ravindra Jain
26 The Burning Train 1980 R.D. Burman

I think this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ must be an obscure movie of its time and may be not seen by many. I would request knowledgeable reader who have watched this movie to throw more light on the movie, its songs and artists in the movie.

let us now listen to today’s song …

Blog Day : 4464 Post No. : 15949

07/10/2020 – 79th Birthday of Usha Khanna
———————————————————————–

We are celebrating the 79th birthday of Usha Khanna, the only female music director, shall we say with a sizable films and number of songs to her credit. Ameerbai Karnataki is the other female composer I can think of. This field as some technical fields in the film industry has been dominated by males. The reasons for this could be socio-political. As the musicians were mostly men, so it is understandable. Like I said the technical side is dominated by males in this industry. There are very few female director’s also. No cinematographers that I have heard of, recently if someone has entered the fray I don’t know.

Usha Khanna’s career statistics are impressive, better than even major well known music composers. Imdb is listing 141 films from 1959 to 2016, that is five and half decades.

In my Vinod Khanna post yesterday, I said that the film “Muqaddar ka Sikandar” is missing in the filmography at imdb. I didn’t look close enough, it appears. Peevesie’s Mom informed me that it is very much there in the list but as “Conqueror of destiny”. Imdb is giving the names of hindi film in English translation. The two of us had fun translating some of the names of Vinod Khanna’s films, which imdb had left as it is.

As Usha Khanna’s filmography is untouched by this translation bug, I am trying my hand at it :

1. Dil deke dekho : Give your heart then see for yourself. (That’s full sentence)
2. Hum Hindustani : We Indians (That was easy)
3. Awara Baadal : Wayward cloud
4. Shabnam : Dew
5. Aao pyar Karen : Let’s fall in Love
6. Nishan : sign
7. Faisla : Decision
8. Ek Sapera Ek Lutera : A snake charmer and a robber
9. Main wohi hoon : Yes, that’s me.
10. Lal Bangla : Red Bungalow
11. Insaaf : Justice
12. Raat Andheri thhi : It was a dark night.
13. Chaand par chadhayee : Let’s move to the moon.
14. Woh koyi aur hogaa : That maybe someone else.
15. Aag : Fire
16. Pehle paisa phir bhagwan: Show me the money, then God
17. Khoj : Search
18. Behroopiya : The interloper
19. Ek Paheli : A riddle.
20. Nateeja : The result
21. Sau saal beet gaye : 100 years later
22. Bandish : The restriction
23. Ilzaam : Accusation
24. Ek phool ek bhool : A flower and a mistake.
25. Begunaah : Not guilty
26. Deedar : The view

So on and so forth, this is enough I think.

About the movie Alibaba and 40 thieves(1966) I have written some things in this post of a song from Alibaba chaalis chor (1954).

The stats page of the blog shows that she has composed 973 songs, and only 223 are posted so far. That is less than 25% of the total song composed by the one of the most prolific music directors of the golden era of hindi film music and later. My own tally is 4 posts of Usha Khanna’s songs, posted by me so far, including the present post. The blog also has 37 songs sung by Usha Khanna.

The present song is from the film Alibaba and forty thieves (1966). The composer is Usha Khanna. There are two lyricist credited with writing this song, namely Prem Dhawan and Javed Anwar. Javed Anwar is the pen name used by her father Manoharlal Khanna, for writing ghazals and film songs for her.

Three songs from the film are posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Mere khayaalon ka tu hi khuda (Alibaba and forty thieves) 23 October 2011
Ham tere charaagh hain jalaaye jaa bujhaaye jaa (Alibaba and forty thieves) 29 January 2015
Dekhiye zara pyaar se kyun khafa ho dildaar se (Alibaba and forty thieves) 14 January 2020

The singers are Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur, singing for Sanjeev Kumar and L. Vijayalaxmi. The song is a sweet romantic song picturised in colourful sets. Actually I saw a few songs of this movie today. I am trying to find an old song where, the slaves are being sold in the market and one female is singing a song, calling out for rescue. I vaguely remember such a song having seen in “Chhayageet” on TV. Since the TV used to be black n white, the colour songs are also remembered in black n while. I did not find the song I am looking for. It could be anywhere as I know only the situation. It’s like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.

Blog Day :

Kidar Sharma has often been given a title of ‘one-man film industry’. He was producer, director, actor, story/screen-play/dialogue writer, lyricist, editor, still photographer etc. He was also known to have the working knowledge of Hindustani classical music. He also sang a song on himself in the film ‘Inquilaab’ (1935). With a vast knowledge gained from working in New Theatres, Kolkata during 1933-41 and in Ranjit Movietone during 1942-47, Kidar Sharma had directed 11 films and written lyrics for 23 films before he turned producer with ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947).

Kidar Sharma had a passion for film making. Otherwise why a young man of 22 years after completing M.A. in English literature would join the New Theatres (NT) as a painter. He would have very well got the job of a lecturer in any college in around his native Punjab. His progress in filmy career was rapid. Within 2 years of joining NT, he was a still photographer and the lyricist for ‘Devdas’ (1935). he became dialogue writer for the Hindi version of ‘Vidyapati’ (1937) in addition to song writing. By 1939, Kidar Sharma had become a free-lance director with ‘Aulaad’ (1939’, his debut film as a director followed by ‘Chitralekha’ (1941) which became much talked about film. Incidentally, after about 23 years, Nadiadwala of Pushpa Films engaged Kidar Sharma to direct ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), a remake of its 1941 version.

After directing 9 films for Ranjit Movietone, Kidar Sharma decided to produce and direct ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947) under his own banner, Oriental Pictures. In fact, nobody was prepared to produce this film, not even his employer, Ranjit Movietone. So, he was forced to become the producer. He arranged finances by selling the distribution rights of the film in advance. For his maiden venture, he introduced two new comers – Raj Kapoor and Madhubala. Both the actors had done some bit roles in films before they were given the lead roles for the first time in the film. The film was an average success in terms of box office collections. Since then, Kidar Sharma has produced and directed 14 films between 1947 and 1980.

As a producer-director, Kidar Sharma was not a showman like Raj Kapoor for whom the production value in terms of star cast, techniques and costly sets for film shooting were as important as the theme of the film. On the other hand, Kidar Sharma was an antithesis of a showman. He believed in low budget film which ruled out taking star actors for the lead roles. Hence, for almost all his films which he produced and directed, he preferred new comers and his protégées to whom he had earlier introduced in his films. In this process, he gave to the Hindi film industry, popular actors like Raj Kapoor, Madhubala, Geeta Bali, Bharat Bhushan, Mala Sinha, Tanuja etc to whom he introduced in his films as lead actors for the first time. Similarly, he mostly relied on Snehal Bhatkar and Roshan as music directors for his films who were introduced by him in his films ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947) and ‘Sohag Raat’ (1948), respectively for the first time.

Kidar Sharma’s last box office successful film as a producer-director was ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950) with Raj Kapoor and Geeta Bali in the lead roles. All his subsequent films like ‘Shokhiyaan’ (1951), ‘Gunaah’ (1953), ‘Chhora Chhori’ (1954) and Rangeen Raaten’ (1956), did not fare well at the box office. All his films in the 1960s and thereafter numbering 6 either failed miserably at the box office or did not get released. I guess, ‘Sehme Huye Sitaare’ (1994) was his last film which remained unreleased in the theatres.

I have watched selectively a few films of Kidar Sharma from 1940s to 1960s. In most of his films, the story is based on a village or a small town and he tries to depict the intricate human relationships. All his films gives an impression that he had not come out of the Bengali mode of film making which were losing stream in Hindi film industry in the later 1960s where films were seen more as a medium of entertainment to fill the coppers of producers and distributors in terms of profits than covering the social issues concerning the society at large. Kidar Sharma did not fit in this milieu. So, the last 5-6 films produced and directed by him became obscure to such an extent that most of the us do not even remember the title of the films.

‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) was one of the obscure films produced and directed by Kidar Sharma. The star cast included Kanan Kaushal, Yuvraj, Madhup Sharma, Naaz, Anant Marathe, Gauri Varma, Veena Sood with Shyama, Dev Kumar Gajanan Jagirdar, Hiralal and Maruti as guest artists. The film had 6 songs (including one song re-used from ‘Chhora Chhori’ (1954). Kidar Sharma wrote the lyrics which were set to music by Snehal Bhatkar.

The film was certified by the Censor Board on December 5, 1989. I am not aware whether the film was released in the theatres. I also do not find the gramophone/CD version the songs. Fortunately, the VCD of the film is available on one of the video sharing platforms. After watching the initial part of the film, I lost interest in watching the rest of the film. However, I have watched the picturisation of 3 songs in the film. My take on this film is as under:

1. Kanan Kaushal in 1989 was 50. But in this film, she looks much younger. Incidentally, Kanan Kaushal made her debut in Hindi film in 1969.when she was 30.

2. Of the 6 songs, one song is rendered by Mohammed Rafi with Suman Kalyanpur. The voice of Rafi sounds like his voice of the 60s. There is another duet in which Rajkumari Dubey sings for Kanan Kaushal. There are two songs by ghazal singer, Mahesh Chandra who had also sung in ‘Maikhaana’ (1967) for Kidar Sharma.

3. The treatment in the film in terms of cinematography, costumes and dialogues give an impression that this film was shot in the 60s through early 70s.

My own hunch is that the film was majorly shot between 1970 and 1975. Kanan Kaushal had become a well sought-after actress for mythological films after the tremendous success of her film ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ (1975). In the wake of her success, I do not think that she would have agreed to act in ‘Pyaase Nain’ post 1975. Going by the style of film making by Kidar Sharma in his later years, during which time he used to shoot the film as and when he could raise finance, this film must have been delayed for want of finance. By the time the film got completed, it was terribly out of date. Probably, the film got released only on Television.

One of the six songs which I liked the most from the film ‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) is ‘aao aawaaz se aawaaz milaakar gaayen’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur which I am presenting here. The song is written by Kidar Sharma which is set to music by Snehal Bhatkar. When I said earlier that Rafi’s voice sounds like that of his voice in the 60s, I remember his voice in the song dil-e-betaab ko seene se lagaana hoga from ‘Paalki’ (1967). Incidentally, this song is also sung by Mohammed Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur.

With this song, ‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) makes its debut on the Blog.

4454 Post No. : 15921

In my last three articles, I have discussed Hindi film dancers, Mohana Cabral, Sheila Vaz and Minu Mumtaz. One common factor in all the three dancers was that they had active Hindi film careers of around 5-6 years after which they got married and quit Hindi films when they had not even attained 25 years of age. They took the responsibilities as house-wives and lived happily with more or less the same level of comfort and life style as they would have got had they continued their filmy careers. To this list of three Hindi film dancers, I am adding one more dancer who also quit Hindi films after her active years of Hindi film career during 1960-66. The name of the dancer is Jeevankala. She got married in 1969 when she was 25.

I got background information on Jeevankala from her two interviews – one in 1964 which was published in ‘Picture Post’ magazine and republished in ‘Cineplot’ on January 1, 2012. The other interview was of recent origin which was taken by Shishir Krishna Sharma in December 2018 and published in his Blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ on March 31, 2020. Based on these two interviews, the main highlights of the profile of Jeevankala and her journey with Hindi film industry are given below:

Jeevankala (also written as Jeevan Kala) was born on June 29, 1944 at Pune to Dattatreya and Gangubai who were actors in silent films and later in Marathi films when sound films started in 1931. However, after Jeevankala was born, the parents gave up their film career. Incidentally, the name, ‘Jeevankala’ was suggested by her neighbour, Lata Mangeshkar. Jeevankala did her primary schooling in Pune. Simultaneously, knowing his daughter’s interest in dances, the father put her under the tutelage of Babsaheb Gokhale for Kathak dance and Professor Gaekwad for Bharatnatayam dance for a period of 7 years. Later, she learnt all other formats of dances by herself.

In 1957, Jeevankala’s family shifted to Mumbai as she got a job of assiatant dance teacher in Bharatiya Vidhya Bhawan and taught Kathak dance to students. She was also participating in Lata Mangeshkar’s musical shows in Mumbai in which she used to give her dance recitals. She also attended the night school and completed her Matric in 1960.

In one of Jeevankala’s dance recitals, producer-director K Amarnath saw her skill in dancing and offered her a role of a dancer in his film, ’Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959) in which she had two dance songs. However, she also said that ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959) was her debut film in which a song “Akhiyaan Bhool Gayi Hain Sona” was picturised on her. [As per her filmography, she had already acted in 8 films during 1956-58. I will come to it later].

After she was noticed in her dance skills in ‘Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959) and ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959), Jeevankala started getting many films offers. Starting as a dancer, over a period of time, she started getting character actor’s roles and also romantic roles pairing with comedians. She also got the role of a vamp in ‘Mr. X in Bombay’ (1964) and ‘Saraswatichandra’ (1968).

In 1969, Jeevankala got married to Ram Kelkar, the story, screen-play and dialogue writer in Marathi films. It was a marriage arranged by Sulochana Latkar who was like ‘God Mother’ to her after the death of her mother in 1965. After marriage, Jeevankala quit the film industry. Her husband, Ram Kelkar became a successful story, screen-play and dialogue writers for Hindi films like ‘Beimaan’ (1972), ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974), ‘Sanyaasi’ (1975), Kaalicharan’ (1976), ‘Asha’ (1980), ‘Hero’ (1983), ‘Ram Lakhan’ (1989), ‘Khalnaayak’ (1993) etc.

On the basis of Jeevankala’s filmography checked from the various sources, I have been able to list 110 Hindi films in which she worked during 1956 to 1968. A few films of her were released late up to 1974. Her active years of film career was during 1960-1966, appearing in 70 films. In the 1964 interview, Jeevankala gave the impression of ‘Kal Hamara Hai’ (1959) as her first Hindi film and in the 2018 interview, she mentioned ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959) as her debut film. It is interesting to note that in ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959), Jeevankala has not been accredited in the credit titles of the film. But she appears in one song of the film.

A further interesting observation about Jeevankala’s filmography is that before 1959, she had worked in as many as 8 films which include ‘Alam Ara’ (1956), ‘Paristaan’ (1957), ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958) and ‘Detective’ (1958). In ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958), a dance song “O Jaan e Jaan Muddat Ke Baad” has been picturised on her.

Jeevankala, who started with big banners film producing companies like Prakash Pictures’ ‘Goonj Uthi Shahnai’ (1959) and K Amarnath Productions’ ‘Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959), drifted into ‘B’ grade movies in the genres of fantasy, action, costume drama, thriller etc. In such films, heroes would be like Sheikh Mukhtar, Ranjan, Daljeet, Dara Singh and heroines would be like Chitra, Vijaya Chowdhary, Parveen Chowdhary, Nishi etc. Of course, she also continued to be associated with big banner films like ‘China Town’ (1962), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Mere Sanam’ (1965), ‘Khandaan’ (1965), ‘Himalaya Ki God Mein’ (1965), ‘Saawan Ki Ghata’ (1966), ‘Saraswatichandra’ (1968) etc.

Jeevankala has also worked in some Marathi films. In ‘Putra Whava Aisa’ (1961), she was in lead role opposite Vivek in which an immortal song,  जिथे सागरा धरणी मिळते beautifully rendered by Suman Kalyanpur was picturised on Jeevankala. A laavani  song, रेशमाच्या रेघांनी, लाल काळया धाग्यांनी from ‘Marathi Tituka Melwava’ (1964) was also picturised on Jeevankala as a laavani dancer.

In the interview of December 2018, Jeevankala has claimed that about 70 songs have been picturised on her. Our Blog has covered 38 songs picturised on her and 17 songs, the video clips of which are available on video sharing platforms are yet to be covered on the Blog. Thus, the total songs picturised on Jeevankala works out to 55. In addition, there could be a few more of her songs for which video clips are not available as some of her films are not traceable as of now.

During the listing of songs picturised on Jeevankala, I came across an obscure  film ‘Panch Ratan’ (1965) (In the credit titles it is written as ‘पंच-रतन’ in Hindi) which was directed by Kamran. The star cast consisted of Randhawa, Parveen Chowdhary, Kamran, Kamal Mehra, Amarnath, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Sadhana Khote, Jeevankala, Laxmi Chhaya, Meenaxi, Aruna etc. The full film is available for viewing in HD quality and it belongs to the ‘Action-Costume Drama’ genre. Probably, this film was meant for those audience who used to enjoy wrestling bouts between Dara Singh, King Kong and others in the 60s at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Stadium, Worli in Mumbai. In addition, there are sword fights in the film for such audience.

The film has 5 songs written by 2 lyricists – Anjaan (4) and Upendra (1). I am presenting the song, “Kya Ho. . . Kahin Miley Do Nigaahen” from ‘Panch Ratan’ (1965). The song is rendered by Suman Kalyanpur and Kamal Barot and is picturised on Laxmi Chhaya and Jeevankala, respectively. In the audience, Parveen Chowdhary,  Randhawa, Kamal Mehra, Meenaxi and Shyam Kumar can be seen among others.

The song is written by Anjaan which is set to music by Sardar Malik.

दिल में भी बचपना हो
ऐसी नाज़ुक घड़ी में
उनसे जो सामना हो

कहीं मिलें दो निगाहें फिर क्या हो
अरे क्या हो

23 rd September was Tanuja’s 77th Birthday and 25th September, 2020 is the 81st birth Anniversary of Feroze Khan. Incidentally, these two have acted opposite each other in at least one film, i.e. Ek Paheli (1971). These are three songs already posted in the blog from this film :

Aansoo ki ek boond hoon main
kaahe karta hai tu itna shor…tera mera ik rasta
Mera tumhaaera saath to sadiyon ka saath hai

I have seen a few songs yesterday while deciding which one to post, they are mostly in the same genre of songs where the heroine Tanuja is singing in some ruined fort like locality with a cemetery inside the ruins. I found one more song of similar setting, where the face of lady singing the song is not shown, so I could not be sure that it is Tanuja. In the song that I have selected, the smiling Tanuja is very much visible and in her customary stylish self with high heels and a small handbag dangling from one hand. The formal attire with the party dress also is not suitable for the location where she is singing the song and leading a curious Feroze khan inside the cavernous ruins of the fort, in broad daylight. She is looking like no “bhoot’, so no bhoot or rooh in this song. SumanKalyanpure is the singer of this song composed by UshaKhanna. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist.

I can find a lot of similarities between these two actors of yesteryears. Both were stylish and good looking. While Tanuja came from a film family and must have been surrounded by the family connections in the film industry, Feroz Khan was an outsider. They both had siblings in the film industry, but I think Tanuja’s sister Nutan was estranged from her family. From the filmography it is seen that most of Feroze Khan’s films are with Mumtaz. They must have a good personal equation also, much like common people do, which results in their children marrying each other. I have read somewhere these two, Mumtaz and Feroz Khan became great friends during their struggling days and Amitabh Bachchan was also a part of this friendly circle, also a struggler.

There are a lot of bad and worst things being said, heard, written and repeated about the film industry and its so called ‘movers and shakers’, in recent times. It is a known fact that all that glitters is not gold. There are always dark and murkier things below the surface. And those who choose to be part of it are going in the murky waters with their eyes open. There are hardly any secrets in this world anymore, let alone the film industry. We as outsiders can only be this much detached and away from the ugliness, and try to maintain the façade of art and culture, and hide our knowledge and apprehension behind beautiful music, or what else we find good and appreciable.

In the 50’s and 60’s decades, there were people going in the industry to make a living or decent living. Some were maybe so impoverished that, there was hardly a choice to make, between flesh trade or do hard labour in the film studio as extra artist. And there are always ambitious people ready to give all and compromise all for either easy money or name and fame, or to be rid of financial ruin caused by their family members. Too much money or too little, it is a factor. Nepotism exists here too as it does everywhere else, in any form.

This is what MeenaKumari means when she says :

Aabl apaa koyi iss dasht mein aaya hogaa
Warna aandhi mein diya kisne jalaaya hogaa

Or when she says this :

Jalti bujhti si roshni ke pare
Simta simta sa ek makaan tanhaa

This was an insider view, saying things through poetry, what cannot be said for fear of losing its charm, glitter and shine.

The two actors Feroze Khan and Tanuja have spent their lives in the industry, been right in the thick of things. We can certainly say a few good things about these two, that they were talented and their successes were due to their talent and hard work.


Song-Main ek paheli hoon barson se akeli hoon (Ek Paheli)(1971) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

Main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
mujhe jaan’ne walaaa koyi nahin
pehchanne waalaa koyi nahin
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

mere paas aa
mere meharbaan
na de door hi se
sadaa mujhe ae
main hoon ik charaagh
bujhaa huaa
tu jalaa sakey to
jalaa mujhe
tu jalaa sakey to
jalaa mujhe
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

meri kab se hai
yahi aarzoo
ke mujhe galey se
lagaaye tu
tere dil ka dard
mitaaun main
mere dil ki pyaas
bujhaaye tu
mere dil ki pyaas
bujhaaye tu
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

tujhe kya khabar
ke tere liye
main na jaane kab se
udaas hoon
meraa pyaar dekh ke
har ghadi
tere saathh hoon
tere paas hoon
tere saathh hoon
tere paas hoon
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
mujhe jaan’ne waalaa koyi nahin
pehchaan’ne waalaa koyi nahin
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

Missing Films of 1960s – 116
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, wonderful. Revisiting an old friend after a very long gap. Feels good.

This series was initiated on 30th Sep, 2015, almost 5 years ago to the day. The series continued with a certain regularity almost for four years, till 1st July, 2019. That day, I had posted a rarest of the rare finds – “Taaron Bhari Raat Hai” – a song from the film ‘Hawa Mahal’ (1962), a film which is very much available in video, but sadly all its songs have been axed from the VCD release. I had written in that post, that I had even gone beyond the VCD version and searched out the VHS cassette of the film, and even that had no songs. But fortunately, searching thru film, I accidentally chanced to catch half a song that appeared at the end of the film. Probably, when the editors were making the cuts, for whatever reasons (which we do not know at this point), they had missed out the closing shots of the film, whereat one song is repeated partially as is the tradition followed in many Hindi films we know.

That was the 112th episode of this series. And I believed at that time that I had exhausted all the available films of 1960s that I could gather from all the sources I could take help from. But I was so wrong in my belief at that time. And man, am I glad that I was so wrong. Actually, as soon as that post appeared, I got a few messages from friends on the blog and off it, that hey, this here is another film available, so please check it out. I did, and found a few more films and songs available, that have helped to keep this series alive and continuing.

The frequency has reduced significantly, but surely, we have now added three more films to the series. We keep chugging along, and hopefully will continue to reduce the number of films which sit on the list of pending films from 1960s. I bring on board one more film from 1960s, that had been unavailable for quite sometime. And to let you know, there still are two more films that have been identified and I will be posting them appropriately.

The intent of the series continues today with a song from the 1965 film ‘Panch Ratan’. This obscure film had remained so for quite many years. Even the Geet Kosh did not carry the complete information about this film. The list of songs is there, but the songs themselves remained elusive for long. It appears that the songs of this film were not released on gramophone records, and so the audio version of the songs of this film remains out of reach even today. However, the video of this film has been available online for almost 10 years now, indicating that it was a major miss on my part as I started searching five years or so ago, for missing films of 1960s.

Anyway. The film is available, as are its songs. Here is the first song of this film, as it makes it debut on our blog here today. The film is produced under the banner of Broadway Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Kamran. The film is a costume drama, with a theme that has been oft repeated in Hindi cinema and also the world cinema. The theme is the variation of the storyline in which a group of well meaning friends come together in a pact of solidarity, to overthrow a local regime of a tyrannical bad-man. Films on this theme are plenty across the world – ‘Seven Samurai’, and ‘The Magnificent Seven’ immediately come to mind, as do films like ‘Khotey Sikkey’ etc. I am sure readers will be able to add more films as examples.

The cast of the film is listed as Randhawa, Parveen Chaudhary, Kamran, Shaam Kumar, Kamal Mehra, Habeeb, Amarnath, Randhir, Meenakshi, Sadhana Khote, Fazal, Moolchand, Sabir, Anjum, Madhumati, Jeevankala, Aruna, Lakshmichaya, Saudagar Singh, Joginder Singh, Vasant Singh, and Sony Alexander etc.

The film has five songs, all in video. None of these songs have appeared any gramophone records. Four of the songs are written by Anjaan and one song is credited to Upendra. Today’s song is by Anjaan. Music for this film is composed by Sardar Malik. Today, I present the first song of this film here. This is a raj-darbaar dance song – a dance performed in a royal court setting. The singing voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. On screen, the song has been performed by actress Aruna. The identification of the dancer has been made by our dear Prakash ji. Also, in this video clip, we can see Parveen Chaudhry, Randhir, and Kamran, seated on the raised dias watching this performance. In between, the scene cuts to a dungeon where we see Randhawa and Shaam Kumar as prisoners being tortured by the king’s soldiers. We also see three other soldiers enter the dungeon, one of whom is actually a lady dressed as a male soldier. Apparently, these three are friends of Randhawa who have come to rescue him. Their identity gets revealed as the helmet of lady gets disturbed and her long hair fall down. A melee ensues in which Randhawa and Shaam Kumar are freed and the chief of the torture chamber is put in chains. All this while the dance and the song continues in the royal court. There is help required to identify all the players in this clip, and I request Prakash ji and other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help to identify more actors.

With this song, ‘Panch Ratan’ makes its debut here on the blog. And it also bring up the 116th episode of this series. I must admit that the gap in the episodes has been quite a bit, and even this post has been prompted by the fact that another post, by Sadanand ji, is now waiting to be posted, and it uses another song of this film. When Atul ji and I received the post from Sadanand ji, I was prompted into quick action to ensure that the debut song of this film is first brought on board as part of this series and then the post by Sadanand ji gets published. I must thank him for being patient to wait for me to post this debut song. His post should be coming on within a day.

Another very interesting observation here. In the flurry of Ten Year Challenge posts, we seem to have backed away from posting debut songs. The last debut song posted here was on 5th Sept, nineteen days ago. And 46 posts ago. Meaning that in the past nineteen days, 46 songs have been posted and not a single one is from a debut film. We need to research whether this is a record. I am not sure, but seems quite like it.

I will sign off now and let you take a view and listen to this wonderful fast paced melody which is quite attractive in the first hear itself. The dance movements and expressions presented by Aruna are very impressive. A song that surely is worth watching as well as hearing.
