“Seema”(1971), a namesake of the better known “Seema”(1955), was directed by Surendra Mohan for Filmnagar, Bombay.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog. Here are the details of the songs covered si far :-

The sixth and final song from the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Incidentally, Shanka Jaikishan had composed music for “Seema”(1955) as ell.

The song is picturised as a dance song. I can identify the lady as Padma Khanna. I am unable to identify the male dancer. Their dance performance is being witnessed by a housefull audience. I cannot recall any old Hindi stagae dance song where the hall is anything but jampacked. 🙂

The audience also include the lead pair of Kabir Bedi and Simi Garewal.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors seen in the picturisation.

ith this song, all the songs of “Seema”(1971) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered the movie and the movie “Seema”(1971) thus gets YIPPEED in the blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 117 #Happy Birthday Reena Roy
———————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1978’ movie ‘Karmayogi’. I was longing to share a song from this movie and launch this movie on the blog since long (actually for many years now 😊).

However, the song I had earlier planned to share is not today’s song, but a different song from this movie.

Today’s song was heard frequently on radio and loudspeakers in those days when I was about ten and half years old (considering the date of censor certificate of this movie).

The reason for introducing this song today here on the blog is to celebrate and wish yesteryears beautiful actress Reena Roy a ‘very happy birthday’ today. She turns sixty-three today (born on 7th January’1957).

We wish her a safe, healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I had in my earlier post mentioned about Reena Roy’s movies that I watched and liked too, so I am not going to repeat the same here. We will straightway come to today’s movie and the song.

‘Karmayogi-1978’ was directed by Ram Maheshwari for ‘A.R. Productions, Bombay’. It was produced by Anil Suri. It had Mala Sinha, Rajkumar, Jeetendra, Rekha, Reena Roy, Ajit, Nazeer Hussain, Jagirdar, Yogita Bali, Sudhir Dalvi, Dheeraj, Kanhaiyalal, Jagdeep, Dhoomal, Mushtaq Merchant, Omkar Ema, Chandrashekhar, Jagdish Raj, Master Abbas, Master Parvez, Master Rajiv, Master Sonu and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1978.

This movie had six songs, including one multiple version song. Lyrics for all songs were written by Verma Malik and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey were the playback singers for this movie.
Lata Mangeshkar had sung only one solo song in this movie and this is the same song being presented today.
None of the songs from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1978’ or 1979. However, today’s song made it to the ‘shadow list’ of songs or ‘songs of the next rung’ of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1979.

I had watched this movie on VCR during my stay at Kota circa 1990-1991. Though I have now forgotten the story of the movie, but I always remember a song from this movie. That song is another song sung by Asha Bhonsle and picturized 0n Rekha.

I had forgotten about today’s song but recently when I checked the Asha Bhonsle song for a post, I rediscovered this Lata Mangeshkar song. After listening to it, I recalled that this song was playedfrequently on loudspeakers during its time.

That is all for this post today. We wait for the next interesting post with other song of this movie. Till then let us once again wish Reena Roy a ‘very happy birthday’, and listen to today’s lovely song …

As mentioned above this song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and lyrics are penned by Verma Malik. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

With today’s song ‘Karmayogi-1978’ makes its debut on the blog. 😊

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 109 # Tribute to actor Vinod Mehra #
————————————————————————————

30th October’2020 is the thirtieth ‘Rememberance Day’ of one of the much loved and handsome actors of Hindi Film Industry – Vinod Mehra. He was born on 13th February’1945 and passed away at the young age of forty-five only. The news of his death shocked everybody at that time. He started his career in Hindi movies as a child artist in the late fifties and his career as an adult began in 1971.

‘Seventies’ saw many actors who may not have worked more or given many hits but somehow they have left their indelible impression in the mind of movie-goers and children grown in ‘seventies’ like me.

I think I can include names like Vinod Mehra, Navin Nischol, Vijay Arora, Anil Dhawan, Mahendra Sandhu, Vishal Anand etc. in this list. (I may be forgetting some and not recollecting at this moment).

That was a time when we were watching movies without being a ‘fan’ of anyone. The ‘thrill’ of watching movie in the ‘theatre’ and the whole atmosphere, the big ‘posters’ , the ‘ticket windows’, the different color tickets of various ‘classes’, the ‘namkeen moongfalli, or chanaa and ‘sharbat’ was other main attraction in the intervals and coming out of the theatre after the show ends was like landing back from ‘another planet’ to our own 😊

Vinod Mehra is one such name from those years which immediately reminfds us of his ever ‘smiling face’. His hair style and his looks, his physique and appearance on the screen always give a ‘warm’ feeling. His ‘emotional roles’ make our eyes misty and gave our hearts a stir. Such was his impact. And when I am writing about him, first time here on the blog, I feel like missing a friend or like familiar person very much and my mind constantly asking me – why is that people like him passed at so early? at the age of forty-five?
I think these lines from the today’s song best explain my thoughts for him today ‘tumse nahin pehchaan meri, phir bhi aise lagtaa hai pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna saath rahaa ho jaise’…

It was like he was around in one special corner of our heart always there in the midst of so many stars around.

I remember his photo with his signature sent to my Father in reply to his fan mail which was in his possession along with other ‘star’s’ letters.

Well, going back to the movies of Vinod Mehra which I remember to have watched …

If I try to recollect now the movies of his that comes to my mind as an oldest memory of him, of course, start with ‘tere nainon ke main deep jalaaungaa’ i.e. Anuraag-1972 which I must have watched with my parents. But the song continued to haunt me as a flashback all over the years and the other song and movie permanently embedded on my impressionable mind was ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’ – its song – ‘jhoomtaa saawan dekho aaya’ – never got erased from my memory.

In between I must have watched his ‘Do Phool-1973’, ‘Kunwaara Baap-1974’, ‘Raftaar-1975’, ‘Do Jhooth-1975’,’Naagin-1976’, ‘Ghar-1978’, ‘Chakravyuha-1978’, ‘Swarg Narak-1978’, ‘Dada-1979’, ‘The Burning Train-1980’, ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’, ‘Khuddaar-1982’. I watched these movies either with my parents or my uncle.

For ‘Jaani Dushman-1979’ I was permitted to go alone and not take my younger brothers with me so that they don’t get scared watching and after watching the movie 😊

I watched his ‘Naukar Biwi Ka-1983’, ‘Dharam Aur Qanoon-1984’, ‘Jeene Nahin Doonga-1984’, ‘Locket-1986’, ‘Aag Hi Aag-1987’ with my brothers and cousins.

And I watched ‘Eeshwar-1989’ during my stay at Kota.

I watched his ‘Amardeep-1979’ in 2012 when Rajesh Khanna passed away and movies of Kaka were screened specially on a tv channel.

I watched his ‘Anurodh-1977’ on VCD, much later when I was in Nagpur in 2016 and liked his role very much.
The latest of his movie that I watch was ‘Aarop-1974’ which I watched on my laptop in Sep’2019 during my stay at Kenya (during my preparation for a post for BTYC).

I may have also watched his other movies but I am forgetting them like I think I had watched ‘Sabse Bada Rupaiyya-1976’ and later ‘Amarprem-1971’ may be on tv channels.

However, when I see his filmography now, I realized that I have yet to watch many of his movies from the seventies as well as of eighties till he was doing acting.

Coming back to today’s song now, it is from the movie ‘Ek Hi Raasta-1977’ wherein Vinod Mehra is lip syncing for Rafi Saab’s voice and music is composed by Rajesh Roshan. Lyrics are by Verma Malik.

Shabana Azmi and a child artist (Master Inderjeet/Master Asif/Master Babu?) are also seen in the picturization of this song.

One song from the movie was introduced by me here where in I have given the details of this movie – ‘Ek Hi Raasta-1977’. So, I will not repeat the same here, and instead I will give the details of songs from this movie in the following table (our new practice, so that whenever the movies are Yippeeee’ed on the blog we need to ‘insert’ the links of the respective songs only and update the table for grand ‘finale’ 😊

List of songs – ‘Ek Hi Raasta-1977’ as per HFGK (1971-1980) Vol-V; (in order of appearance there)

Song-Tumse nahin pehchaan meri lekin aisa lagta hai (Ek Hi Raasta)(1977) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

(dialogues not included)

(Child’s laughing sound)

Tumse nahin pehchaan meri
Lekin aise lagta hai
Pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise ae

Tumse nahin pehchaan meri
Lekin aise lagta hai
Pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise

Tujhe dekh ke bhooli bisri
Tasveer ubhar aati hai
Yaad ki dhundhli si parchhaayee
Dil mein utar jaati hai
Donon ko naa yaad rahaa ho
Ho sakta hai aise
Pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise ae

Tujhse mera kya naata
Jab samajh nahin paata hoon
Doob ke main gehraayiyon mein
Ye sochke reh jaata hoon
Kisi janam mein toone koi
vachan liya ho jaise
Pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise ae
Tumse nahin pehchaan meri
Lekin aise ae lagta hai
Pehle bhi kisi yug me apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise ae

(गीत के शुरुवात में दिए गए संवाद शामिल नहीं किये गए हैं)

(बच्चे के हंसने की आवाज़)

तुमसे नहीं पहचान मेरी
लेकिन ऐसे लगता है
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

तुमसे नहीं पहचान मेरी
लेकिन ऐसे लगता है
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

तुझे देख के भूली बिसरी
तस्वीर उभर आती है
याद की धुंधली सी परछाई
दिल में उतर जाती है
दोनों को ना याद रहा हो
हो सकता है ऐसे
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

तुझसे मेरा क्या नाता आ
जब समझ नहीं पाता हूँ
डूब के मैं गहराईयों में
ये सोचके रह जाता हूँ
किसी जनम में तूने कोई
वचन लिया हो जैसे
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

तुमसे नहीं पहचान मेरी
लेकिन ऐसे लगता है
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

Hullo Atuldom

13th October happens to be the death anniversary of an actress who has played mother to all Bollywood actors and some actresses too.
Nirupa Roy. She was often called the “Queen of Misery” as she has portrayed characters that are forever in sorrow and tragedy. There are many jokes about how she was a careless mother and has been separated from her children in film after film. She was permanent mother to Amitabh Bachchan in movies made in the 70s and she has played his foster mother even in “Lal Badshah” which came in 1999, think that was her last release too.

In the interim Dharam, Shashi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra and Khanna Rishi Kapoor etc have also been the apple of her eye. She made her debut in 1946 in a Gujarati film “Ranakdevi”. The same year saw her act in a Hindi Movie- “Amar Raj” with Trilok Kapur as hero. She was routinely cast in mythologicals in the ’40s and ’50s and it is said that people used to visit her home to get her blessings. “Do Bigha Zameen” (1953) was an important film of her career where she played the wife of Balraj Sahni the farmer who loses his land to industrialization. In later years, she co-starred Balraj Sahni as mother to three school-going children in “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani” (1970) and a doting bhabhi to his brother Randhir Kapoor in “Jawaani Deewani” (1972). She was also the heroine to P.Jairaj, Ashok Kumar in many of the movies of the ’50s. In ’70s, when she began doing character roles she was still wife of Ashok Kumar or his bahu as in “Santaan” (1976) and “Anurodh” (1977).

Personally speaking I became aware of this mother only through “Deewar” (1975) and later “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977). Subsequently I have seen a lot of movies where she was sometimes ‘strict and sweet at other times’ mother and loved her smile.

Today we remember this sweet mom of Bollywood with a song that sees her wishing her ‘ungrateful’ son and his family all the best in life at the birthday party of her grandson. It is from “Santaaan” which had this famous song.

One other multipart song from this movie is present on the blog. I have given a brief about this movie in the comments of this song. Here is the penultimate song of the movie which had music by Laxmi-Pyare. Verma Malik was the lyricist. This song is sung by Asha Bhosle

saath rahoongi main bhi thhandi
pawan ka jhonka ban ke
yug yug tak na bhool sake
mamta ko pyaar tera
mamta ko pyaar tera
meri dua hai sada
meri dua hai sada
rahe sukh se sansaar tera

4443 Post No. : 15891

In my last post on the Blog, I had written about Mohana Cabral, the dancer who had ruled Hindi film industry during 1949-55. After writing this post, I thought that I should do, more or less, a similar exercise on another well- known dancer who was one of the much sought-after dancers during 1955-60, now almost forgotten. She had worked in the films of big banners like R.K. Films, Navketan Films Guru Dutt Films, Filmistan etc. The dancer is Sheila Vaz. And what a coincidence! Both Mohana and Sheila Vaz had Goan background. When Mohana ‘vacated her seat’ from Hindi films in 1955, Sheila Vaz stepped in to fill the vacant seat in 1955.

While Mohana came from theatre background and became dancer in Hindi films, Sheila Vaz came from a dancing background having learnt dancing, especially folk dancing during her teenage days in Mumbai. But unlike Mohana, Sheila Vaz had tough competitions from reigning dancers like Cuckoo, Roopmala and the emerging dancers like Helen, Kumkum, Minoo Mumtaz etc. But Sheila Vaz created a niche for herself among her contemporary dancers in Hindi films. Like Mohana who bid adieu to Hindi films in 1955 after her marriage, Sheila Vaz too left Hindi films in 1960 after her marriage and remained in Mumbai as a housewife keeping aloof from the Hindi film industry.

I could not get much information about Sheila Vaz on the internet or articles in the newspapers/film magazines as to her background, upbringing and as to how she got associated with Hindi films. Some bare information about Sheila was available in an article ‘Dances with Sheila’ written by Karan Bali which appeared in upperstall.com. The article was based on an interview of Sheila Vaz conducted by him in 2009. Since he had interviewed her for his project on the golden age of Hindi cinema, he shared only some background information and her dance songs in the article.

Sheila Vaz’s family hailed from Goa. She was born on October 18, 1934 in Dadar, Mumbai. Her schooling was completed in Mumbai. Simultaneously, she learnt dances especially Indian folk dances. Initially, she had to face some resistance from the family who were against her joining films but eventually she got permission to dance in Hindi films. She began her filmy career with Kishore Sahu’s ‘Mayur Pankh’ (1954) as dancer though Kidar Sharma’s ‘Gunaah’ (1953) was released first. [According to me, she seems to have acted as a chorus dancer in Kidar Sharma’s ‘Shokhiyaan’ (1951) followed by a full-pledged dancer in ‘Maa’ (1952)]. In the interview, Sheila Vaz had said that she was extremely fortunate enough to have worked with legends like Kidar Sharma, Raj Kapoor and Guru Dutt. Her active years in Hindi film industry was during 1955-60. She got married sometime in 1960 after which she quit her filmy career. After marriage, she became Rama Lakhanpal.

Since Sheila Vaz could neither read or understand Hindi, she was given the songs in Roman script and explained their meaning so that she would know what expressions to give. One of many interesting anecdotes revealed during the interview was the shooting of the song ‘leke pehla pehla pyaar’ from CID, which was choreographed by Zohra Sehgal. The song was shot at Worli Sea face and was completed in two days.

I have been working on the filmography of Sheila Vaz and on the songs picturised on her in Hindi films. But I found collating her filmography somewhat a hard task. The reasons were that in some films, she was not accredited. And if accredited, her name appeared as ‘Sheila Vaz’, ‘Sheela Vaz’. ‘Shela Vaz’, ‘Shila Vaz’ or simply ‘Sheela’. In this context, Sudhir ji helped me by sending a list of her films by culling out information from HFGK which has listed 61 films between 1955 to 1961. I compared the HFGK list with my list which I had compiled from checking on the internet with different spellings of Sheila Vaz and also from our Blog which has tagged her songs under the category ‘Sheila Vaz Dance Songs’. With these, my revised list merging with HFGK list provided by Sudhir ji came to a whooping 70 films in about 6 years of her Hindi film career.

Year-wise details of Sheila Vaz’s 70 films are as under:

1952 (1): Maa

1954 (1): Mayur Pankh

1955 (4): House No.44, Sardaar, Shree 420, Tees Maar Khan.

1956 (8): Anokha Jungle, Basre Ki Hoor, CID, Durgesh Nandini, Jallad, Kaarwaan. Patraani, Shatranj.

1957 (23): Abhimaan, Agra Road, Bade Sarkaar, Bansari Bala, Begunaah, Ek Saal, Hill Station, Johny Walker, Maya Nagri, Mirza Sahibaan, Miss India, Mr. X, Nausehrwaan-e-Adil, Pawan Putra Hanuman, Ram Hanuman Yudha, Sant Raghu, Sati Pareeksha, Shaahi Baazar, Sharada, Silver King, Tumsa Nahi Dekha, Ustaad, Yahudi Ki Ladki.

1958 (9):Chaubees Ghante, Hathkadi, Light House, Mr. Qartoon MA, Paravrish, Raj Sinhaasan, Sawera, Solva Saal, Taqdeer.

1959 (11): Bus Conductor, Chaand, Chhoti Bahen, Guesh House, Jagga Daaku, Jaagir, Kaagaz Ke Phool, Madaari, Madhu, Naya Sansaar, Samraat Prithviraj Chauhan.

1960 (8): Bade Ghar Ki Bahu, Bahaana, Duniya Jhukti Hai, Kala Aadmi, Laal Quila, Manzil, Miyan Biwi Razi, Superman.

1961 (5): Batwaara, Chhote Nawab, Modern Girl, Ramlila, Ramu Dada.

Our Blog have listed 33 songs picturised on Sheila Vaz under the category Sheila Vaz dance songs for which video clips are available to watch. There would have been more of her dance songs if the VCDs/DVDs of her other films were available on video sharing platforms. I have listed some of her popular dance songs with links below:

sach keh den gar bura na maano – ‘Maa’ (1952)

tandaana tandaana tandaana – ‘Mayur Pankh’ (1954)

ramaiyya vastavaiyya – ‘Shree 420’ (1955)

leke pahla pahla pyaar – ‘CID’ (1956)

thandi thandi hawa pooche unka pataa – ‘Johny Walker’ (1957)

jaane kaisa jaadoo kiya re – ‘Parvarish’ (1958)

akeli mujhe chhod na jaana – Madaari’ (1959)

suna hai jab se mausam hai pyaar ke kaabil – ‘Ramu Dada’ (1960)

With 70 films to her credit in a short filmy career of 6 years, Sheila Vaz was in great demand for her dance songs. I have watched almost all of her dance songs for which video clips are available. One thing comes out clearly from her dance songs is that she has an electrifying presence in almost all her dance songs. For example, in dil ka haal sune dilwaala, though Sheila Vaz presence in the song is less than one minute out of 5 minutes of song, when she dances with Raj Kapoor, the attention of the audience would be more on her rather than on Raj Kapoor. Similarly, in the song, thandi thandi hawa pooche unka pataa, in my view, Sheila Vaz outperformed Shyama. When the old timers listen to the songs like leke pahla pahla pyaar, they are likely to remember more of Sheila Vaz though Dev Anand and Shakila were also present in the song sequence.

On the basis of my searches, I think only 3 dance songs of Sheila Vaz for which video clips are available are remained to be covered in the Blog. Of the three songs, I present one of her dance songs, ‘sasuraal mein hogi tu akeli’ from the film, ‘Mirza Saahibaan’ (1957). The song is sung by Shamshad Begum and picturised on Sheila Vaz. The song is written by Verma Malik which is set to music by Sardul Singh Kwatra. The audio clip has a shorter version of the song without the second stanza of the video clip.

This song ia probably based on a Punjabi traditional pre-wedding song. And what a guidance to the ‘would be bride’ from her friends!

ban jayiyo na saas ki cheli
saheli zara dat ke rahiyo

Enjoy the dance song.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

aaj ki raat, ye kaisi raat
ke hum ko neend nahin aati. . .

If the previous song in the series was a lament about lonely nights and the longing that accompanies them, this song today is expressing the opposite emotion. The lovers are together, and the lady is now complaining that her lover does not have an iota of sleep in his eyes, and that she is worried for that.

The gamut of human emotions is spread out wide and far. And whatever be the emotional flavor one may select, one is sure to locate a song from Hindi films that expresses that emotion fairly accurately. Continuing with the saga of sleepless nights, here today we have a flavor of sleeplessness that is expressing a complaint against the lack of sleep on the part of the gentleman. The lady is cajoling and chiding him, trying to induce sleep in his eyes. She is asking him what toy he would like to have, and that she may bring to him that which he desires. But the imploring thread intertwined is that the lack of sleep in his eyes worries her.

Word are crafty. They are a double edge sword that say one thing and mean another. The scenario being played out on screen appears to be one of deception. Apparently Ranjeet is pursuing Navin Nischol, who in turn seems to have taken refuge at Rekha’s home. Now both Rekha and Navin Nischol are inside a room, with Ranjeet sitting outside. And the scenario being played out is as if Rekha is putting a baby to sleep inside the bolted room. The song is telling in words that a mother is trying to put a baby to sleep. That is what a person outside the room would surmise, as one listens to the words of the song emanating from the room. However, the scene, as is being played out inside, there is no baby being put to sleep. Rather, the lovers have been thrown together by themselves in the room. The lady is trying to fend off the advances of the gentleman, and is singing a complaint that there is no sleep in his eyes, and that she would rather that he would take shelter in sleep.

The word and the scenario present an interesting juxtaposition. The film is ‘Saawan Bhaadon’ from 1970. Memory serving right, I remember this film being promoted as the debut film for the lead pair of Navin Nischol and Rekha. As later inputs would clarify, technically this is not the debut film for Rekha, and that her first film ‘Do Shikari’ (1978) was eventually released after a delay of many years. I remember seeing the posters and hoardings for this film as a school going kid. And I also remember that a few songs of this film became very popular and were often played on the radio waves.

The film is produced under the banner of Deluxe Films, Bombay and is directed by Mohan Sehgal, a director of certain repute from that era. The list of actors is presented as Navin Nischal, Rekha, Shyama, Jaishri Talpade, Agha, Narendra Nath, Iftikhar, Krishan Dhawan, Ranjeet, Chandrima Bhaduri, Sushma, Madhukar, Devi Chand, Pardesi, OP Kohli, Dhruv Kumar, Ajeet Bengali, Mamaji, and Darpan Nille etc.

The films has seven songs, all from the pen of Verma Malik. The music is composed by the duo of Sonik Omi. Two songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here.

Today also is the remembrance day for Manohar Lal Sonik, the senior partner in this duo team of music directors. He had passed away this day (9th July) in the year 1993. This is the reminder nudge from our dear Prakashchandra ji, who has sent in the lyrics for this song.

So this was one of the lesser heard songs in its time, being overshadowed by its more popular siblings like “Sun Sun O Gulabi Kali”, “Kaan Mein Jhumka Chaal Mein Thumka” and “Aankhen Meri Maikhaana, Maikhaana, Maikhaana”. On screen the song is performed by a pre-makeover Rekha, chiding a naughty Navin Nischol, while Ranjeet is seated outside the door of the room.

Listen, view and enjoy.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is a special song from the film Mirza Sahibaan-1957. It is special because it is almost a 9 minute song – 8 minutes and 36 seconds, to be exact. There is one more-Punjabi- song in this film, which is about 6m 30s long. Today’s song is written by Verma Malik and the music is composed by Sardul kwatra- one of the 3 Sikh composers in Hindi films during that period ( the other two were G S Kohli and S Mohinder). His younger brother Bhagwant Kwatra was his assistant here.

Sardul Singh Kwatra was one of the very few Sikh Music Directors Hindi Films had. He was born in Lahore in 1928. He was educated and trained in classical music at Lahore. His teacher in music was Sardar Awatar Singh, who was quite famous in Lahore. Later Sardul singh joined Hansraj Behl as his assistant.

After Partition, his family first shifted to Amritsar and then to Bombay. The family established a film production company and started making films. Their first film was ‘Ek Teri Nishani”-49. Sardul singh was its MD, along with Pt. Amarnath and Vinod. Later he composed for ‘Jalte Deep”-50, with T.K.Das. His first independent film was “Man ka Meet”-50.
His family company wanted to make a Punjabi film “Posti”-50. Sardul got newcomer Shyama to be the Heroine. Shyama also acted in their second film “Kode Shah’-53. Their next Hindi film was ‘Goonj’-52, for which Sardul convinced Suriya to be its Heroine. He was its MD of course.

Sardul singh was a tall,well built and handsome person. Unfortunately his severe inclination towards beautiful women overpowered his talents. He used to proudly say, ‘I can not create good music without beautiful faces. ” He was aware of his looks and used it unabashedly to influence women.

When he was in Bombay, he requested Mohd. Rafi ( after this film) to let out the top floor flat in Rafi’s bungalow to him , since it was empty. Being a good and helpful man, Rafi agreed. When Rafi’s son’s marriage was fixed, he wanted his flat back, but Sardul kwatra refused to vacate. Those days, the Bombay Rent control act was in favour of the tenants, so Rafi had a lot of problems. After a few years, Sardul filed a criminal case also against Rafi, in this connection. Rafi suffered a lot because of this. Finally, while going to Chandigarh before shifting to the USA, Sardul Kwatra vacated the flat. This detailed story is described in ” aap ki parchhaiyan” a book by Rajnikumar Pandya ji.

He gave music to 22 Hindi and 13 Punjabi films. In 1970, he visited Chandigarh and established ‘Chandigarh Film Institute”. He left his wife and children and went to the USA with another good looking woman, in 1978. He got 2 children from this association. Sardul singh Kwatra died in the US on 6-7-2004.

India is a unique country in the world. ” Vividhata mein ekta” (विविधता में एकता ). A country which has 28 states and 9 UTs, 22 languages mentioned in its Constitution, 30 languages spoken by 30 lakh people each, 122 languages spoken by more than 10000 people each and 1652 languages spoken in all the country. So many religions are living amicably since thousands of years and still the country is ONE unit, when the Nation needs it. Disproving all the Pundits of the world saying that India will break into pieces after independence, we are stronger and more developed by the day. So, what is the secret ?

The secret is its Culture, which keeps all faiths and languages bound together. In India, Culture is greater than and a bigger influence than individual religions. The flexibility, adaptability and readiness to make changes by the majority section, is the secret. This makes India the biggest Democracy in the world today. The entire world looks up to us as a final Saviour.

Culture and Folklore have bound Indians together. In every state there are its own Folk tales, Folk Dances and Folk Music. Still, some common Folklore is all over the country. Though every region has its own Folklores, Lovers’ Folk lore from Punjab and Sind have been traditionally well known throughout India, e.g. Heer-Ranjha or Sohni-Mahiwal etc etc. Our films have a great contribution in keeping the country United and Together,despite calamities and aggressions. Some of the Folk tales of Love from Punjab and Sindh became well known due to films made on them.

There are 9 Tragic Love stories from Punjab and Sindh,in which both the lovers die without getting united. These 9 Love stories are-
Mirza-Sahiban
Heer – Ranjha
Sassi-Punnu
Momal-Rano
Umar-marvi
Sohni-Mahiwal
Lila-Chanesar
Noorie-Tamchi
Dhaj-Rorkumar (Unlike most pairs,in Mirza Sahiban,the Male name comes First !)
Indian film producers have helped spread these Immortal Love stories by making movies on them,as under-
Heer-Ranjha… Films made in 1931,32,48 and 1970
Mirza-Sahiban… In 1933,35,47 and 1957
Sassi-Punnu… In 1932,33 and 1946
Sohni-Mahiwal…In 1933,46,58 and 1984
Umar-Marvi…in 1942
Noorie-Tamchi…In 1934
Today’s film was directed by Ravi Kapoor, who directed 3 more films-Kala Chor-56,Chalta Purja-58 and Accident-65. The cast of the film was Shyama, Shammi Kapoor, Ram Singh, Madan Puri,Uma Dutt, Indira, Nazir kashmiri, Tun Tun, Daljit and many others.

Indira. This is a ‘Same Name Confusion’ artiste. During the silent Era and early Talkie period, there was one Indira Devi. Her real name was Effie Hippolet- an Anglo-Indian She acted in 24 silent films since 1927, but did only two Talike films-Al-Hilal-35 and Wamaq Azra-1935. Then there is the comedian fatty Indira Bansal who was operative from 1951 to 1981, and worked in 116 films. This Indira was different.

Indira, one of Punjabi cinema’s most popular leading ladies of the 1960s, was born on August 6, 1938 in northern India. Growing up in an aristocratic family in the Punjab village of Kharian, her family lost everything when they had to flee their home during partition to settle in Kanpur. In 1952 her family shifted to Bombay where an Elder brother ran a successful business.

Indira was noticed by the popular comedien Bhagwan while he was shooting a movie at Jagriti Studios, and she was put in the cast of his film Rangeela (1953). Raj Kapoor, who happened to be visiting the set of Rangeela, noticed Indira and later cast her as the daughter of a rich industrialist in his film Shree 420 (1955).

Indira continued to appear in supporting roles in major Hindi productions like Funtoosh (1956), Mirza Sahibaan-1957, Yahudi (1958), and Dil Deke Dekho(1959). She had just appeared as the lead in the low budget yarn Jungle Ki Duniya (1959) when she was cast as the heroine in a Punjabi film titled Yamla Jatt in 1960. This was followed that same year by two more Punjabi pictures, Do Lacchian and Kiklee. All three films were very successful.

Returning to Hindi language movies, she found herself much in demand for B-films with colorful titles like Maya Mahal (1963), Jungle Boy (1963), Tarzan Aur Jadugar (1963), Pahadi Nagin (1964), Arab Ka Lal (1964), Son of Zimbo (1966), Sheba and Hercules (1967), Tarzan in Fairyland (1968) and CID Agent 302 (1968), sometimes playing the heroine, but more often than not as a vamp or villain. Occasionally she would snag a nice supporting role in a major production like Do Dil (1965) or Mere Huzoor (1968), and she still continued to star in Punjabi fare.

Sometimes billed as Indira Billi (her real name was Indira Kaur) she was interviewed in 1963 for Picture Post magazine where she talked about her beginnings: “I had not the good fortune of stepping into films and finding myself a heroine right from the start as had been the case with many glamour girls these days. It was a life of toil and tears, fighting every inch, every day, and month after month. Sometimes I was fed up, felt tired of the ceaseless struggle to make my presence felt. With the struggle for existence keen and with not enough money, those early days were none too happy for a girl aspiring for a respectable place in the film world, let alone stardom. Sometimes I had my misgivings whether I was right in coming into films. Some kind of inferiority complex took hold of me and I thought several times that I would never become a star.” Indira married cinema owner Shiv Kumar in the early to mid-1960s and left the film scene in the early 1970s.

The story of the film Mirza Sahibaan-57 was….

Sahiba’s father (Uma Dutt) is Mirza’s mother’s brother (making them cousins). She brings Mirza for an extended visit to her family home, a visit cut short when Sahiba’s mother (Gulab) throws a fit over her young daughter’s budding relationship with Mirza, who for some reason is not considered worthy of her. Mirza adamantly refuses to leave his Sahiba when his insulted mother packs up her bags and goes.

Her sad-sack hen-pecked brother promises to take good care of Mirza, although how someone so lacking a spine can possibly protect a kid who is clearly not wanted is beyond me. Anyway, Sahiba and Mirza become inseparable and grow into young adults (Shyama and Shammi Kapoor) who adore each other. The little cocoon of love that surrounds them is constantly under attack by Sahiba’s brothers Mir (Ram Singh) and Shamir (Madan Puri) in addition to her mother, but the pair remains steadfast (although they spend a lot of time talking about their willingness to die for one another, never a good omen).

In addition to Sahiba, Mirza has a passion for his white mare and his bow and arrows and is a crack shot. This endears him no further to his nasty cousins, and his love for Sahiba is also a thorn in the side for the local barber and matchmaker Umara (?) who stands to lose a commission if the young lovers marry each other. When Sahiba persuades Mirza to take her to a local fair, Umara takes the opportunity to create trouble.

Umara informs Mir and Shamir that Sahiba is at the fair with Mirza. Infuriated, they track him down and beat him mercilessly, although not as mercilessly as Sahiba’s mother when they all reach home. She throws Mirza out of the house and locks Sahiba in her room. Sahiba’s father quickly accedes to his wife’s wishes that he get Sahiba married into the wealthy Choudhary family (who happen to be her relatives) nearby, and Umara is called in.

Sahiba, unable to escape her mother’s eagle eye, asks her friend Mora to take a message to Mirza, who is now homeless and despondently considering suicide.

Mora saves him from jumping off a cliff, and he goes to stay with their aunt, Bibo.

Umara the matchmaker now becomes very busy, going first to fix Sahiba’s marriage with the son of Choudhary Sahab (Nazir Kashmiri), and then to Mirza’s parents’ house, where he tells them how mistreated Mirza has been. Mirza’s mother asks him to plead with Mirza to return home—which he doesn’t have to do because Bibo is already suggesting it to Mirza. She relents though in the face of Mirza’s devotion.

He agrees to return to his parental home if Bibo will bring Sahiba to him to say goodbye, which she does. He promises to return for Sahiba, and she says that she will send word when her wedding date is fixed so that he can save her. I am not clear how this will work out better than if they just leave right now, but it’s not my plot. Sahiba’s wedding is eventually fixed for the same day as Mirza’s sister Chatti’s, and Bibo sends a message to Mirza.

Mirza receives the message, and races away on his trusty white mare to rescue Sahiba from her wedding. He runs away with her.

The end- The opposite party follows Mirza and Sahiba and kills Mirza. Sahiba commits suicide and both die in each other’s arms.

Blog Day :

4329 Post No. : 15622 Movie Count :

Hullo Atuldom

This is an attempt to remember two legends of Bollywood with one post.

On reviewing the “anniversaries page” of the blog I found an opportunity to introduce the qawwali song from a 1982 released (exact date being 27/05/1982 meaning the movie is 38 years old), Raj Kumar Kohli produced and directed, multi starrer “Badle Ki Aag” (Flames of Revenge).

The recent stay-at-home gave me the time to sit through this movie. It is a very typical, simple, regular story with a slight twist.

There is a family of father (Kadar Khan), mother (Nirupa Roy), two sons and a daughter. The father in his greed for wealth wipes out his partner’s family but the children of this family escape the mass-murder. Nirupa Roy gets separated from her sons in the course of walking out on her cruel greedy husband. She has her daughter with her. The sons grow up to be dacoits Shera (Dharmendra) and Lakhan (Sunil Dutt) and daughter (Sarika) an aspiring lawyer whose education is funded by Lakhan who has kept in touch with the mother and sister. Lakhan is a do-gooder daku where as Shera is ruthless.

Meanwhile the daughter (Reena Roy) of the affected family has been brought up in a kotha and nurses a desire to revenge her families misfortune. Her brother (Rajeev Anand who was seen in about 5 movies after which he turned producer) grows up to be a cop. There is one more important character in the whole setup- Inspector Amar Verma (Jeetendra) who is the son of Mohanlal Verma (Madan Puri) who is constantly tormented by Shera and Lakhan. Now here is the promised twist- at different times Geeta (Reena Roy) the dancer has had interaction with the three heroes and all of them have developed feelings for her. But she loves the Inspector who has seen her at different times with the other two and misunderstands her. Isn’t that a different kind of love-story. Here I should mention the existence of Bijli (Smita Patil) who loves Shera. Hope the readers have got confused about the very regular story that this movie had. The movie was a success at the Box-Office what with so many stars.

Today’s songs has the three heroes disguised as Qawwals at Janakidas’s son’s wedding. We have Smita Patil dancing around. Here I must admit that this post reminded me of this Qawwali sung by Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and Suresh Wadkar. It had music by Laxmikant- Pyarelal and had lyrics by Verma Malik.

Small thoughts after seeing the song on repeat for writing this post- (1) Sunil Dutt and Jeetendra are jumping around and Dharmendra stays put on his mat. (2) Looks like this is the only time when Smita Patil has shared screen time with Jeetendra.

With this song we remember Sunil Dutt and Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on their anniversaries.

jise waqt na mita sake
arre main woh azeem hasti hoon
jise waqt na mita sake
na aandhi hi uda sake
na shola hi jalaa sake

bandook se jo baat kare
main us nasal ka khoon hoon
jo dushmanon ko kuchal de
main aisa ek janoon hoon
zaalimon aur baaghiyon qaatil luteron ke liye ae
zaalimon aur baaghiyon qaatil luteron ke liye ae
main khud hi toh insaaf hoon
main khud hi ek kaanoon hoon
kanoon se main takraata hoon

kanoon se main takraata hoon

hoon hoon hoon hoon hoon
jo chaahta hoon le jaata hoon
jo chaahta hoon le jaata hoon
main jis mehfil mein aata hoon
jo chaahta hoon le jaata hoon

zulm hoon aur andher hoon main haan
aur jangal ka sher hoon main haan
ser pe sawa ser hoon main haan haan
tujh mein itna josh nahin
arre tujh ko apna hosh nahin
main bhi toh khaamosh nahin
fitna aur fasaad hoon main
tere liye jallaad hoon main
donon ka ustaad hoon main
fitna aur fasaad hoon main
tere liye jallaad hoon main
donon ka ustaad hoon main
haan haan haan haan
main jis mehfil mein aata hoon
