Today’s song is from the film Captain India-1960. Not only this film is making a Debut on the Blog, but its Music Director- Hemant Kedar- too is making his Debut here. It is a rare occasion these days that a music Director makes his Debut in the blog, because we have covered so many MDs already ( at my last count, we have covered 462 MDs on this Blog). However, there are still a large number of MDs whom we have yet to listen. From 1931 to till today, as per a rough estimate, there could be almost 500 to 700 Music Directors.

Of these, MDs who gave music in less than 5 films could be about 50 to 100, those who composed for 5 to 15 films may be 100, from 15 films to 50 films may be about 150, from 50 to 100 films will be around 100, from 100 to 200 films may be another 50, more than 200 films may be about 50 or so. Add to this one film wonder MDs- almost 200.

These are simply wild guesses, without any solid base. Well known Music Directors who have given music in many films are a large group and Music lovers are conversant with their names. What is of interest to a student of HFM is those Music Directors who have given music in less than 5 films and One Film Wonders( like Pt. Amarnath Chawla of Garm Coat-55, for example).

Have you ever heard the name of a composer called HEMANT KEDAR ? No, it is not a pair like Shankar Jaikishan, Kalyanji Anandji or Laxmikant Pyarelal .It is a misleading one name( like another such single name Shyamji Ghanashyam ji, for example). OK, did you ever know about R.K.Shinde or Ram Shinde ? I am sure , most of the readers may not have heard these names. These are the names of Ramkrishna Shinde. This reminds me of composer Snehal Bhatkar who used 5 different names as composer.

The composer of today’s film Captain India-60, Ramkrishna Shinde was a multi talented composer, who could not shine, though he had talents. Further he started his career at a time when India’s big composers like C.Ramchandra,Naushad, Husnlal-Bhagatram, Shanker-Jaikishen etc were in their best performing period and had hogged almost all the major production houses as their Patrons. In this flood of Musical Tsunami, smaller composers remained smaller due to non availability of exposure and good banners, waning into oblivion ! Those who had talents plus good luck survived, but composers with talents without Luck were soon forgotten.

Ramkrishna Shinde was born on 19-4-1918 in Malvan area of Maharashtra Coastal Belt. He was eldest amongst 2 brothers and 2 sisters When he was 9 yr. old, his father died and the faily was shifted to Bombay, by aunt and uncle. His interest in music was unusual. He took training in vocals fro Pt.Sitaram and learnt Sitar from Pt. Madhav rao. For survival, he took up a job in Dawn Mills. In 1944, he got married. Same time, he met Dancer Parvati kumar and Tabla player Ramakant. He soon left the job and started giving music to Marathi stage plays. He was a very popular composer.

His first Hindi film as a composer was Manager-47, followed by Kiski Jeet-48 and then Bihari-48, with Naresh Bhattacharya. Not getting films anymore,he turned to giving music to Dance Ballets. He became so famous in that, that 27 of his ballets went abroad with his music. He was called by Amiya Chakrawarty for giving Dance Music in Usha kiran’s film Gauna-50.

he returned to Hindi films again. This time as Hemant kedar. Reason for this name- his favourite Raagaas were hemant and Kedar. He gave music to

Khaufnak Jungle-55
Police Station-59 and
Captain India-60.

Hemant Kedar ( Like Daan singh and Jaidev) must be one whose unreleased films numbered many or more than than his released films. Some of his Unreleased films were

1. Hamari kahani
2. Avinash
3. Sati mahananda
4. Jannat ki Hoor
5. Peeli kothi
6. Paataal Devta ( This was the film in which actress Mumtaz had Debuted, but this movie was not released)

Hemant Kedar gave music in two Marathi films. Side by side, he did 5-6 programmes on All India Radio. After the advent of Television, he started giving music in TV Ballets and was in great demand for such programmes. He did about 15 Ballets on TV. He became ill and expired on 14-11-1985, leaving behind his wife and two daughters. Luckily, his wife had a good job. (Thanks to http://www.beetehuedin.blogspot.com for this information.)

Film Captain India-60 was produced by Rajaram Saqi and directed by C.Kant. It was a stunt film featuring Kamran, Krishnakumari and others. There were 5 songs, all written by the Producer himself-Rajaram Saqi. Kamran Khan Rizvi was a regular Stunt Hero and I used to enjoy his films. He started his film career with Baghi Sipahi-36, a film made by East India Film Co, Calcutta. A.R.Kardar was its Director. Later on Kamran came to Bombay, along with kardar, who was his Patron for quite some time.

Hero Kamran and Heroine Nazi was a popular combination of 12 stunt films, those days. Kamran worked in 52 films. In 1963, film Bachpan was being directed by Nazar Ahmed. He had some disputes with the Producer and he left the film midway. The Debutant Hero Salim ( father of actor Salman Khan) and Debutant Heroine Menaka ( sister of Daisy and Honey Irani…all daughters of Mrs. P.N. Irani, a greedy mother, who spoiled the childhood of her children for money) were in trouble. Kamran stepped in and completed the film by directing the balance part, without taking any money. During this period, he fell in love with menaka and they got married. Her film career ended there only. They had one son and one daughter ( Actor, compere, Director Sajid Khan and famous Choreographer and Director Farah khan).

Kamran stopped getting Hero’s roles, as stunt films were not being made to that extent in the 70s and later period. He decided to become producer and Director. This proved to be his nemesis. He failed miserably, lost everything and became an alcoholic. He divorced Menaka, who worked as a Housekeeper in a 5 star hotel (Hotel Sea Rock) and he lived in his big flat in Versova with 2 children but no money. He died in 1985.

Kamran directed 11 films from Panch Ratan-65 to Ban Manush-80. His last film as an actor was Nastik-83.

During the period 1950 to 1960, lot of stunt, action, and fiction films from Hollywood used to come . Among them my favourites were from Republic Serial films like “Trip to the Moon’, Hurricane’, Time machine, Superman,The 4 D man etc. There was one film “Captain Marvel”, which was my favourite and I saw it 5 times. I had thought that Captain India-60 was also like that film and went to see the film and came back hugely disappointed . The story of the film was-

Seth Mohan lal was a rich merchant in Burma. He decides to return to India, with his only daughter Krishna and settle in Roop Nagar to lead a retired life. Gangster Rajan from Rangoon comes to know that the Havel Mohan lal is to buy has some great secret hidden in it. If he can get that secret he can rue the world. So, he follows Mohanlal to India.

Meanwhile krishna meets Shekhar- a Press Reporter by job, Lover boy by habit and an all round spy as a hobby. After singing the mandatory love songs and doing exercise around Trees, they decide to marry and tell her father about their love. Rajan is very business minded and so, Mohan lal gets killed and the young couple is frightened with the existence of Ghosts etc in the Haveli.

Madhu is the moll of Rajan and she too loves Shekhar. She reveals the actual plan of Rajan and about the secret formula in the Haveli. Suddenly, Madhu gets killed in the arms of Shekhar. She is murdered by Rajan. Now he is after the lives of Krishna and Shekhar and they are on the run. With the help of the Police, Rajan is caught red handed, but he sets fire to the Haveli and the secret formula gets burnt.

All is well that ends well. After the end, audience is well and goes home cursing the film.

main padh raha hoon tumko

baaqi raha na kuchh bhi
dil mein siwa tumhaare
sab kuchh luta ke hamne
paaya wo raaj tum ho

jo khwaab zindagi ke
poore huye na mere
khwaabon mein unko dekha
tabeer e khwaab tum ho

manzil wahi puraani
raahen wahi puraani
yoon lag raha hai jaise
sadiyon se saath tum ho

main padh rahi hoon tumko

“Darbaar” (1955) was a Golden Movie production. It was directed by N Vakil (aka Nanubhai B Vakil). The movie had Mahipal, Chitra, Sunder, Tiwari, Kammo, Kamal, Niranjan Sharma etc in it, which suggests that it was a B grade movie.

Six songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the seventh song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Talat Mehmood. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of this song is available and so it is difficult to say for sure about the picturisation of the song. My guess is that this song was picturised on the leading man of this movie, viz Mahipal. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Teri ada par nisaar karne (Darbaar)(1955) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

teri ada par r nisaar karne ae ae ae ae
teri ada par nisaar karne
main dil ko laaya, teri gali mein
main dil ko laaya, teri gali mein
teri ada par nisaar karne
main dil ko laaya, teri gali mein
mai dil ko laaya, teri gali mein aen

zamaane bhar ka aa haseen tohfa aa aa aa aa
zamaane bhar ka haseen tohfa
main le ke laya, teri gali mein
mai le ke laya, teri gali mein
teri ada par nisaar karne
main dil ko laya, teri gali mein

main aisi kaafir nazar ke sadke ae ae ae
main aisi kaafir nazar ke sadke
ki jisne mera guroor toda aa aa aa aa
jo sar kahin bhi
na jhuk saka thha
wo sar jhukaaya teri gali mein
wo sar jhukaaya teri gali mein
teri ada par nisaar karne
main dil ko laaya, teri gali mein

bade maze ka hua ye sauda aa aa
bade maze ka hua ye sauda
teri amaanat
tujhi ko de di
ee ee ee
ee ee ee
jo dil mila thha teri gali mein
wo dil lutaaya teri gali mein
wo dil lutaaya teri gali mein
teri ada par nisaar karne
main dil ko laaya
teri gali mein

“Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) was produced and directed by B S Ranga for Vikram Productions, Madras. This movie had Raja Sulochana, Ranjan, Sowcar Janki, Sriram, Rajagopal etc in it. It appears from the cast that this movie may have been a remake of some South Indian movie though HFGK is silent about this fact.

The movie had eight songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Talat Mehmood and Suman Kalyanpur. Shreeram Saaz is the lyricist. Music is composed by Md Shafi.

HFGK mentions that the movie version of this song was apparently sung by Talat Mehmood and Sudha Malhotra (instead of Suman Kalyanpur). The female voice in the audio link provided in the writeup sounds like Suman Kalyanpur though the uploader mentins it as Sudha Malhotra.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, a nice “Chaayaageet” song, “Mohabbat Ki Jeet”(1960) makes its debut in the blog.

It is my turn today to celebrate a ‘Yippeee’.  I am not sure if I have specifically announced a ‘Yippeee’ in any of my earlier posts. Possibly that could have been before the term ‘Yippeee’ was coined. Today we announce the completion of posting of all songs of the 1956 film ‘Makheechoos’. The important thing for me is that the music is by that unsung genius Vinod.

In HFM, we often have two or more artists with similar/ same names and that leads to lots of confusion and disinformation among music lovers. For instance, there are more than one artists named Raj Kumar, Raj Kumari, Shashi Kapoor, Ghulam Mohammad, Trilok Kapoor etc. Often credit for the work of one artist is erroneously given to another artist of same/ similar names. We in this blog has coined a term “same name confusion.”
