Thank you, Swarpriyaji for BAAP RE BAAP!

woman is the mirror in which man sees the reflection of his own self, his own dormant and hidden powers of genius when she comes and stands before him
A woman is a meaning to life ! Someone who loves, who cares !

Mr. & Mrs. '55 (1955)

Here is another great musical treat from the combinaton of Guru Dutt-O.P. Nayyar-Majrooh Sultanpuri. To assist them were Geeta Dutt and Raf Saab. All songs even today sound vibrant and very youthful. My favorites from this movie are Geetaji' solo "Thandi Hawa", Rafi Saab's "Meri Duniya", and their duet "Udhar Tum."

Guru Dutt plays a cartoonist in the movie. The cartoons were drawn by the famous cartoonist late R.K. Laxman. For years and years, seemd like forever I can remember, Laxmanji had a daily cartoon in "The Times of India" newspaper entitled "You Said It." Beautiful Madhubala, the heroine of this movie, died very young (in 1969) when she was only 36 with various heart ailments. Guru Dutt, the actor, producer, and director of this movie also died (in 1964) when he was young and only 39 years. So much promise, so much potential, so many outstanding contributions, yet both these great artists tragically dying so young.

Now for details of the songs of "Mr. & Mrs. '55" and songs themselves ...

Aar Paar (1954)

Aar-Paar catapulted O.P. Nayyar Saab to fame and fortune. Each one of the song is a foot tapper. The songs were enriched by Geetaji's beautiful voice along with Shamshadji and Rafi Saab. The song "Babuji Dheere Chalna" was in a recent Hindi movie "Salaam-E-Ishq." The song was picturized in its entirety but the singer was not Geetaji. This just shows the populaity of these songs even after 54 years.

All songs are from a CD. There are eight songs altogether. I am also uploading extended versions of all eight songs. These are all by the courtesy of the Forum members. The extended version of "Ja Ja Ja Ja Bewafa" is only 8 seconds longer. Except for additional music there is not much extra in it. Also, the extended version of the song "Mohabbat Karlo Jee Bharlo" is missing a word in the beginning.

Here are details of the songs and songs themselves ...



Some bits and pieces of information on the music of Aarpaar:

OP's Aasmaan, Chham Chhama Chham and Baaz (produced by Geeta Bali and Guru Dutt) were superflops. Guru Dutt was upset for the failure of Baaz. Guru owed some amount to OP but was in no mood to pay him. OP was ready to pack his bags and that time Geeta stood by OP. Even though OP gave all songs of Chham Chhama Chham to Asha ji, Geeta ji did not feel offended by that. She made sure that OP got the assignment for Guru's next flick, a musical crime thriller titled "Aarpaar". It was kind of Aar ya paar situation for OP himself. Guru gave him a few records of Bing Crosby and OP came out with foot tapping numbers of Aarpaar. "Sun sun sun zalima" was sure inspired but "Ja ja ja ja bewafa" was a masterpiece.

All the songs of Aarpaar were superhit. OP composed "Baabuji dheere chalana" but he got to a quick-fast start for his career with songs of Aarpaar. Geeta ji sang for Shyama, Shakila and Noor in "Yeh lo main haari piya", "Baabuji dheere chalna" and "Arey na na na na tauba tauba" respectively. Shamshad ji sang the superhit title song and she will always be remembered for this lovely song. Rafi sahab was superb in all the duets he sang "Mohabbat kar lo", "Sun sun sun zalima" and "Arey na na na na tauba tauba" with Geeta ji.

Aarpaar bought OP into A grade of composers and more success followed...

Thanks Parag for the information. I heard somewhere that OP and Guru Dutt didn't get along because Guru Dutt didn'y pay the money Nayyar Saab thought he owed him. But the fact still remains, as you noted, that OP owed so much to Guru Dutt for providing him additional opportunities with both Aar Paar and Mr. & Mrs. '55 after the disassters of Baaz and others. Of course, many years later, OP came back to provide music for Guru's "Bahare Phir Bhi Aayengi" also.

Chhoo Mantar (1956)

Here is another winner from O.P. Nayyar Saab. One of the distinnguishing feature about Nayyar Saab is that he composed music with same verve and gusto whether the hero was Shammi Kapoor or Guru Dutt or Johny Walker. This movie is an excellent example of this. It boasts several beautiful songs. The duet by Geetaji and Rafi Saab "Tumhi Ne Dard Diya Hai" is still a very popular number.

Now for details of songs and the songs themselves ...

C.I.D. (1956)

This was the movie in which Guru Dutt, the producer, introduced Waheed Rehman to Hindi audience. She just made a sensational debut in a Telugu movie (“Rojulu Maarayi”) in South, and Guru Dutt immediately signed her for a long term contract to act in his movies. For all practical purposes this was a stunning debut. Waheeda went on to act in many successful movies and reaped many rich laurels on herway to the top.

This was the movie also in which Raj Khosla, who was assisting Guru Dutt, made a second start as a director. He was a close friend of Dev Anand and Guru Dutt. He earlier directed Dev Anand in the movie “Milap” that was a commercial failure. He got a second chance when Guru Dutt offered him to direct “C.I.D.” This time Khosla didn’t waste his opportunity. He made a great movie comparable to any crime noir thrillers of Hollywood ala Bogart. Very stylish and very suspenseful. Also to embellish this was rich music with beautiful song picturizations. Raj Khosla had training as a singer and wanted to be one when he arrived in Bombay. This background and working with Guru Dutt made him realize the importance of songs and their picturizations. The picturization of songs of “C.I.D.” are still talked as much as its music composed by the one and only O.P. Nayyar Saab.

With this movie, Guru Dutt also was sort of “paying back” his friend Dev Anand. Guru Dutt got a break as a director with Dev’s own movie “Baazi.” For a brief period in mid-50’s, Dev was going through a “lean” period and was looking for a major hit. This movie offered him that chance.

There were only a few songs in this movie, but each one of them is a marvel. The rustic charm of Shamshadji’s voice comes through in her two solos as well as the complex “Leke Pahla Pahla Pyar” song. The seductive mysticism of Geetaji comes throug in both of her duets and especially the song “Jaata Kahan Hai Diwane.” The picturization of “Leke Pahla Pahla Pyar” was just astonishing. Shakila looked very impish and beautiful in the song to Dev’s trademark stroll by the seaside promenade. This song had all of the melodic charm as it was picturized on three different singers.

Then there was Johny Walker who almost stole the show from Dev Saab. His song sung by Rafi Saab, “Yeh Hai Bombai Meri Jaan” with Geetaji is another one of those beauties (horse carriage trots again!) that is still considered a homage to the great city.

Now for details of songs and the songs themselves …

Hum Sab Chor Hain (1956)

This movie was before Shammi Kapoor shaved his mustache and established his own identity as a "Rebel" star. This was an all out comedy. It was expected because I.S. Johar was at the helm of affairs. He wrote the story, directed the movie, and had a major role in the movie. It was made by Filmistan and was a huge hit. O.P. Nayyar's music contributed strongly for the movie's commercial success.

I.S. Johar was an award winning author before he entered into the movies. Soon he established his own brand of comedy. He also acted in several English movies. These include "Harry Black and the Tiger", "Northwest Frontier", "Lawrence of Arabia", "Maya", and "Murder On The Orient Express". For "Harry Black", he received a nomination for best supporting actor from the British Academy of Films and TV Arts (BAFTA). These awards are equivalent to American Oscars in Britain. "Maya" also starred Master Sajid who was introduced by Mehboob Khan in "Mother India." After the huge success of this movie, Mehboob Saab adopted Sajid and gave him the principal starring role in his "Son of India." By the way, the movie "Maya" subsequently became a television series in USA and ran for several seasons with Sajid sharing honors with an American actor.

The famous producer and director Yash Chopra got his start with I.S. Johar. Yashji worked as an assistant director to Johar Saab before started working in the same capacity for his brother Bal Raj Chopra (B.R. Chopra). After directing few movies for his brother he started his own production company "Yash Raj Films" and has been making one popular film after another for a number of years.

The CD has eight songs. However, the song "Hum Ko Hanste Dekh Zamana Jalta Hai" appears twice on the CD. They sound identical to me. Therefore, I am uploading here only one of them. If someone is interested, I will be happy to upload the other song.

Now for details of songs and the songs themselves ...

Naya Andaz (1956)

Here is another beautiful album from the maestro O.P. Nayyar. Shamshad Begum and Kishoreda are the stars of this album with able support coming from Rafi Saab. There are some melodious duets by Shamshadji and Kishoreda, the most famous being "Mere Neendon Mein Tum".

I am uploading 11 songs here, all from CD. There is one song missing. The name of the song is displayed in red italics in the table shown below.

Now for the details of the songs and songs themselves ...
