Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Yesterday, 16thJune 2017, was the 97th birth anniversary of singer- music director-producer-director Hemant Mukherjee alias Hemant Kumar. He started out his music journey in 1935 on All India Radio with “Amar Ganete Ele Nabarupi Chirantanii” under the influence of his friend Subhas Mukhopadhayay. Hemant Da’s music career was primarily mentored by the Bengali musician, Sailesh Duttagupta. In his early life Hemant Da used to follow the famous Bengali singer Pankaj Mullick. For this he was nicknamed as “Chhoto Pankaj”. In an interview on television in the early 1980s, Hemanta had mentioned that he had also received classical music training from Ustad Faiyaz Khan’s student Phanibhusan Banerjee.

Hemant Da’s first film song, as singer, was in the Bengali film ‘Nimai Sanyas’ released in 1941. Music was scored by Hariprasanna Das. Hemant Da’s first compositions for himself were the Bengali non-film songs “Katha Kayonako Shudhu Shono” and “Amar Biraha Akashe Priya” in 1944. Lyrics were by Amiya Bagchi. His first Hindi film songs were in ‘Irada’ (1944) under Pt. Amarnath’s music direction. Hemant Da is considered a foremost exponent of Rabindra Sangeet. His first recorded Rabindra Sangeet was in the Bengali film ‘Priya Bandhabi’ (1944). The song was “Pather Sesh Kothaye”.

His first movie as a music director was the Bengali film ‘Abhiyatri’ in 1947. Although many of the songs Hemant Da recorded during this time received critical acclaim, major commercial success eluded him until 1947. In the mid-1940s, Hemant became an active member of the Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA) and started an association with another active IPTA member — songwriter and composer Salil Chowdhury.

Hemant Da started receiving more assignments for music composition for Bengali films. Some were for director Hemen Gupta. When Hemen moved to Mumbai, he called upon Hemant Da to compose music for his first directorial venture in Hindi titled ‘Anand Math under the Filmistan banner. Responding to this call, Hemant Da migrated to Mumbai in 1951 and joined Filmistan Studios. The music of ‘Anand Math (1952) was a moderate success. The most notable songs from this movie is “Vande Mataram” sung by Lata Mangeshkar, which Hemant Da set to a marching tune. Following ‘Ananda Math’, Hemant Da scored music for a few Filmistan movies like ‘Shart ‘in subsequent years, the songs of which received moderate popularity. Simultaneously, Hemant Da gained popularity in Mumbai as a playback singer.His songs playbacked for actor Dev Anand under music director Sachin Dev Burman in movies like ‘Jaal (“Ye Raat, Ye Chandni Phir Kahaan“), ‘House No. 44’ (“Chup Hai Dharti, Chup Hain Chand Sitare” and “Teri Duniya Mein Jeene Se“), ‘Solva Saal’ (“Hai Apna Dil To Awara“), and ‘Baat Ek Raat Ki’ (“Na Tum Hamen Jaano“), became very popular and continue to be so. In the 1950s, he also play-backed for other heroes of Hindi films like Pradip Kumar (‘Nagin, ‘Detective) and Sunil Dutt (‘Duniya Jhukti Hai) and later in the 1960s for Biswajeet (‘Bees Saal Baad’, ‘Bin Badal Barsaat’, ‘Kohra’) and Dharmandra (‘Anupama’); he was the music composer for all these films.

In the latter part of the 1950s, Hemant Da composed music and sang for several Bengali and Hindi films, recorded several Rabindra Sangeet and Bengali non-film songs. Almost all of these, especially his Bengali songs, became very popular. This period can be seen as the zenith of his career and lasted for almost a decade. Some of the notable films Hemant Da himself composed music for during this period include ‘Harano Sur, ‘Marutirtha Hinglaj’, ‘Neel Akasher Neechey’, ‘Lukochuri’, ‘Swaralipi’, ‘Deep Jwele Jaai’, ‘Shesh Parjanta’, ‘Kuhak’, ‘Dui Bhai’, and ‘Saptapadi’ in Bengali, and, ‘Jagriti’ and ‘Ek Hi Raasta’ in Hindi.

The late 1950s, saw Hemant Da venture into movie production under his own banner: Hemanta-Bela productions. The first movie under this banner was a Bengali film directed by Mrinal Sen, titled ‘Neel Akasher Neechey (1959). The story was based on the travails of a Chinese street hawker in Calcutta in the backdrop of India’s freedom struggle. The movie went on to win the President’s Gold Medal — the highest honour for a movie from Government of India. In the next decade, Hemant Da’s production company was renamed Geetanjali productions and it produced several Hindi movies such as ‘Bees Saal Baad’, ‘Kohraa’, ‘Biwi Aur Makaan’, ‘Faraar’, ‘Raahgir’ and ‘Khamoshi’ — all of which had music by Hemant Da. Only ‘Bees Saal Baad’ and ‘Khamoshi’ were major commercial successes.

1977 saw him give music to ‘Do Ladke Dono Kadke’ which was produced by his son Ritesh and had screenplay- dialogue-direction by Basu Chatterjee. It was certified on 19-10-1978 and released in 1979. The movie had a cast of Moushumi Chatterjee, Amol Palekar, Asrani, Navin Nischol and Ranjeet, Iftekar,Keshto Mukherjee, Ritu Kamal etc. Mithu Mukherjee (in a guest appearance) played Navin Nischol’s wife and Master Ravi’s mother. The songs were written by Yogesh. It had two playback singers- Yesudas and Asha Bhonsle.

Amol Palekar and Asrani are petty thieves. They enter a house to burgle at the same time as another gang that has earmarked for kidnapping the kid of the house. Both parties end up drinking all the liquor in the house just as the servants of the house return. But Amol and Asrani also happen to overhear Ranjeet (leader of the other gang) talk of his kidnap plans, so the two leave all the stolen stuff and take the kid away. What follows is chaos.  But why am I giving the screenplay of the movie here. Let us move on to the second and final song from “Do Ladke Dono Kadke”.

Remembering Hemant Kumar.

[Ed Note: With this song, we have yet one more Yippeee event. The film ‘Do Ladke Dono Kadke’ (1978) now has all its songs covered on our blog.]

Song – Chanda Ki Doli Mein Thi Ek Pariyon Ki Raani (Do Ladke Dono Kadke) (1978) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Hemant Kumar
Asha Bhosle + Yesudas

Lyrics

chanda ki doli mein thi ek pariyo ki rani
heere ke the pankh jis ke hai usi ki ye kahani
chanda ki doli mein thi ek pariyo ki rani
heere ke the pankh jis ke hai usi ki ye kahani
chanda ki doli mein thi ek pariyo ki rani

ek din wo pari baawari si ho gayi
uske hothon ki hansi jaane kahaan thi kho gayi
ek din woh pari baawari si ho gayi
uske hothon ki hansi jaane kahaan thi kho gayi
uske mukh par thi udaasi aankhon mein tha paani
chanda ki doli mein thi ek pariyo ki rani

[yahaan tak toh thi pari ki hamaari
ek si kahani
lekin is ke baad
hum hum hain
aur pari . . .]

pairon me ghunguru tabhi baandh kar
kuchh mor nache jo us ke liye
pairon me ghunguru tabhi baandh kar
kuchh mor nache jo us ke liye
wo hans padi
usne heere sabhi
moron ke pankho pe jadva diye
wo hans padi
usne heere sabhi
moron ke pankho pe jadva diye
tab se yahaan
har mor ke pankho pe 
uski hai nishaani

chanda ki doli mein thi ek pariyo ki rani
heere ke the pankh jis ke
hai usiki ye kahani
chanda ki doli me thi ek pariyo ki rani

चंदा की डोली में थी एक पारियों की रानी
हीरे के थे पंख जिसके
है उसी की ये कहानी
चंदा की डोली में थी एक पारियों की रानी
हीरे के थे पंख जिसके
है उसी की ये कहानी
चंदा की डोली में थी एक पारियों की रानी

एक दिन वो परी बावरी सी हो गई
उसके होठों की हंसी जाने कहाँ थी खो गई
एक दिन वो परी बावरी सी हो गई
उसके होठों की हंसी जाने कहाँ थी खो गई
उसके मुख पर थी उदासी आँखों में था पानी
चंदा की डोली में थी एक पारियों की रानी

[यहाँ तक तो थी
परी की हमारी एक सी कहानी
लेकिन इसके बाद
हम हम हैं
और परी॰ ॰ ॰]

पैरों में घुंघरू तभी बांध कर
कुछ मोर नाचे जो उस के लिए
पैरों में घुंघरू तभी बांध कर
कुछ मोर नाचे जो उस के लिए
वो हंस पड़ी
उसने हीरे सभी
मोरों के पंखों ओए जड़वा दिये
वो हंस पड़ी
उसने हीरे सभी
मोरों के पंखों ओए जड़वा दिये
तब से यहाँ
हर मोर के पंखों पर
है उसी की कहानी

चंदा की डोली में थी एक पारियों की रानी
हीरे के थे पंख जिसके
है उसी की ये कहानी
चंदा की डोली में थी एक पारियों की रानी

“Husn Ka Ghulam” (1966) was directed by Kedar Kapoor for Rainbow Pictures Production, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Nishi, Jamal, Maruti,Madhumati, Niranjan Sharma, Khurshid, Krishna Kumari, Bill Robinson etc in it.

The movie had si songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the blog. The first song from the movie was discussed in 2013. The second song was covered in 2015.

At present we are in 2017, so it follows that we should have the third song from the movie in the blog now. 🙂

Here is the third song from “Husn Ka Ghulam” (1966) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that the song is picturised on Nishi. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Hullo atulites

I just realised that today (24 november 2016) is the birthday of another 70s/80s actor, producer director. Yes I am talking of the man who made the common man or the boy-next-door feel like a hero- Amol Palekar. I can’t believe he turns 73 today. it seems like yesterday that we saw him in Chitchor, Rajnigandha and Choti Si Baat. It seems like only recently that we saw him searching for a house with Zarina Wahaab and singing “Do deewane shahar main”, or desparately trying to convince his mom about Tina Munim being the right girl for him to get Married to (Baaton Baaton Mein). Then one fine day we saw him as a villian in Vinod Chpora’s ” Khamosh”. With his clean image one would have never guessed that he was the serial killer in that movie. In between all this we also saw him playing a husband to Parveen Babi (Rang Birangi) where he is tutored by Deven Verma about how to bring back the romance in his married life.

Hullo everyone

Here is a typical Kishore Kumar song. Combining with RD Burman he gives us a bhajan, qawwali and Hindustani classical all at one shot. Such a song has entertainment value and Kishore Kumar doesn’t disappoint (has he ever?) And there are very few Bollywood actors who can carry it off with equal gusto.

Here we have our very own Sanjeev Kumar giving a paisa vasool performance.

Missing Films of 1960s – 24
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

To each his due – that is an adage that basically covers all the destinies, whether right or wrong, whether happy or sad. The struggle to definitively define whether success is destined, or whether it can be achieved through hard work, is a tough task indeed. Logic and arguments work both ways. Believers of destiny even go as far to propound that one will put hard work in life, because that is what the destiny says should be. And sometimes one tends to lean towards that argument – for there are numerous cases we know of people successful without having to put in too much hard work, or having displayed much capabilities. And of course, there are cases, also very numerous, where highly capable people are seen putting in lot of hard work most of their lives, but still, the coveted fruits of success elude them. And so, after witnessing so many such seemingly unfortunate lives, living through such seemingly unfair circumstances, one is eventually resigned to say – to each his due.

Sureeli Suman – 14

Music Director Shyam Sharma, a regular employee with HMV (later on, RPG) had in 1970 recorded an Album named “Swar Bahar” that had ten melodious devotional and love-songs by Suman Kalyanpur (aka Suman Hemadey, her maiden name). Seven out of these ten have now been covered in this wonderful singing blog. This one is the eighth jewel from that Album. Some songs which were not Meera Bhajans were love songs written by Anjaan and Yogesh. This one is written by Yogesh.

Lata Mangeshkar who first sang in a Marathi film ‘Gajabhau’ (1944), is still continuing to sing for Hindi films albeit very sparingly. As per http://www.myswar.com, she sang a solo song for the film ‘Dunno No Y2 Life is a Moment’ (2015). That gives her playback career a span of over 7 decades – a world record, I guess, in playback singing for films. In fact, she sang for 46 films between 2000-2015. I thought why not do a similar exercise for Talat Mehmood.
