We in this blog had two new resolutions and I had decided to stick to them as long as I can. One was to introduce a “new” movie daily and another was to to close the account of another movie by YIPPying it.

We are in may 2017, and both these resolutions have finally seen breaks. For instance, there was no YIPPEE song on 13 may 2017, a day that had only one post, a post that introduced a “new” song. The string on YIPPEE posts was in fact broken a few days earlier on 6 may itself when I posted a song that I thought was YIPPYing its movie but I was wrong. The “new” post string had got broken a while ago.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

In Hindi movies, the leading lady would sing “romantic” songs only for the benefit of the leading man. But sometimes she would sing such songs for the villain as well, though here her intention would be to outwit him rather than romance him.

‘Ghazab kiyaa tere waade pe aitbaar kiyaa’ is a famous ghazal written by Daagh Dehlvi. Ever since I heard this ghazal sung by Mohammed Rafi for the first time in late 60s, I am spellbound by his rendition. In fact, I scouted for a gramophone record in 78 rpm of this song in early 70s and I was able to get a brand new record. I must have played this record many times and now I can tell which points Mohammed Rafi takes a momentary pause while singing this ghazal. This non-filmy ghazal was set to music by Khayyam. This ghazal has also been sung by many well known singers of thesub-continent such as Mehdi Hasan, Pankaj Udhas, Mallika Pukhraj, Farida Khanumand many more. With due respect to all these singers who are numero uno in their own rights, I still prefer to listen to Mohammed Rafi’s version.

Janaury 31st is the death anniversary of Suraiyya who was India’s greatest female singer-actor of the post-partition period. While reading her profile and biography, I felt that her life had twists and tales worthy of making a full length feature film. For instance, her romantic involvement with Dev Anand, a dominating maternal grandmother who, apart from deciding her filmy career, played a spoilsport in her romantic relationship and finally her decision to quit films to live a life of seclusion, can be some of the ingredients for a cinematic presentation. Suraiyya’s life cycle can best be described in some of her own renditions like Laayi khushi ki duniya (Vidya) , Tere nainon ne chori kiyaa mera chhota sa jiya pardesiya (Pyaar ki jeet) and Raste pe ham khade hain dil e beqaraar le kar (Rajput) to Ye kaisi ajab daastaan ho gayi hai(Rustam Sohrab)(1963) and finally to Rahiye ab aisi jagah chal kar jahan koi naa ho (Mirza Ghalib) .

I keep mentioning that Rafi was capable of singing with unbelievable amount of energy. I have often mentioned songs where I thought that the energy level in the singing was just mind boggling.

Suraiyya, who ruled the roost as am actor-singer gradually ran out of steam in 1950s. The fact that she would sing only for herself meant that as her demand as an actress fell, she stopped getting singing offers as well.

During early 1950s, the biggest name in male playback singing was Talat Mehmood, and like Suraiyya on the distaff side, he was foraying into acting too. In fact, many music directors at that time thought that he was not avaialble to sing for other actors ( like Suraiyya) and as a result he stopped getting offers for playback singing for other actors.
