(Shakeel) Sunghursh (1968)

This movie was based on a Bengali short story “Layli Asmaner Ayna” that was authored by the award winning writer Mahasweta Devi. The movie had a huge star cast and was supported by a several veteran actors. Producer and director of the film H.S. Rawail was coming off fresh from a huge hit in “Mere Mehboob” released in 1963. He originally wanted Sadhana to play the female lead but Sadhana took leave from acting because of eye problems. He then signed Vyjayanti Mala to play opposite Dilip Saab. While the movie’s production was progressing, the lead players developed differences. When Raj Kapoor’s “Sangam” came in 1964, Dilipji felt that Malaji was drifting away to his camp. It was rumored that many scenes in which the lead players were supposed to be seen together were shot separately. There were also rumors of her leaving the film (as in 1967 “Ram Aur Shyam”). As most of the film was complete Vyjayanti Mala stuck with it to finish the film thus squelching rumors of her quitting the film. This was their seventh and last film together. Most of the movies they starred together were huge hits.

Naushadji’s music came under some criticism as many felt that it was below par for him. Nevertheless most songs became popular. The chart buster was the song by Rafi Saab, “Mere Pairon Mein”. This was the 15th and the last movie Naushadji was associated with Dilip Saab. Their collaboration started with 1948 “Mela” and continued for next 20 years coming to an end with “Sunghursh”. Their association, along with Shakeel Badayuni as the lyricist of most of those films, produced some unforgettable music for generations to enjoy. Naushadji lived for another 37 years but took only limited assignments during that period. He worked only on 10 films in that time. “Pakeezah” can be considered 11th but his contributions to it were limited but very significant. He took over for his long time friend and associate Ghulam Mohammed Saab when he passed away to complete that project. He scored its magnificent background music and composed a couple of songs. Naushadji’s last film was “Taj Mahal” released in 2005 few months before his death.

Gulzarji wrote dialogues for the film. The movie’s assistant director was Rakesh Roshan who later became a big time producer and director.

I am uploading all songs from the film in two back-to-back posts. There are three short songs in the film, that are not available on any CD, the voice I am not certain if it is Rafi Saab’s. They sound more like Mahendra Kapoor’s but even that I am not convinced of. The titles list only Rafi Saab as the male singer. I am requesting our members to share the names if they have the correct information.

Here is the first set of songs starting in the next post…

(Anand Bakshi) Taqdeer (1967)

I had great expectations of watching this movie because it was coming from Rajshri Productions. But this remake of this 1966 Konkani hit “Nirmonn” was a total disappointment. Hindi film starred Shalini Mardolkar who was also in “Nirmonn”. The problem with the film is that none of the characters were etched out properly. The woman who became a widow, her husband died in a shipwreck, with three young children is forced to marry her husband’s friend who always had an eye on her. The movie swiftly shifts in time when all the children are grown up and are adults now. Suddenly the dead person turns up throwing a wrench in his wife and her now not so new husband’s lives. Interestingly wife is ready to ditch her current husband and wants to go back to her old husband and so on… Simply a clumsy story and poor directorial effort.

There is one saving grace for the film. What lifts from its mediocrity is the beautiful music by LP to some fine lyrics by Bakshi Saab. The song of the album is “Jab Jab”. It appears three times in the movie, two solos by Lata and Rafi Saab, and the third one by a trio of singers. Also, the song “Kaise Koi” appears three times albeit piece-wise. I am uploading this as three parts but the verbiage of parts 2 and 3 are already in part 1 but singing pace by Rafi Saab seems different in the last two parts.

I am uploading these and the rest of the songs from this film in two back-to-back posts. Here is the first set…

(Majrooh) Manzil (1960)

Here is another classic album from the combination of ever so dependable Burmanda working with Majrooh Saab and Dev Saab. This combination always proved to be a winner. This time is no different. Each and every song from the film was a huge hit even though movie itself was only a modest success. There are so many melodious songs that it becomes a real task to single out any one as a favorite. Even though I cherish to listen to all these songs over and over again, my heart goes to Hemantda's touching solo, "Yaad Aa Gayi". With so much melancholy in his voice, with such touching lyrics, the song stirs up disquieting memories. Love you Hemantda...

Here is an observation. If you listen closely to the duet "Dil Toh Hai Deewaana Naa" you will find the music in the song from 2:28 to 2:33, identical to the music from “Bombai ka Babu”, "Deewaana Mastaana" that also came in 1960. It also had the winning combination of Dev-Burmanda-Majrooh.

The singer list in the titles mentioned the name of Mrinal Chakravarty. Any of the references I have researched could not find what song he sang for the film. Now I am convinced that in the film the song “Hum Dum Se Gaye” starts in the bar with the actor David Abraham uttering few words first (13 to 24 seconds in the song). These may be Chakravarty’s. Dev takes the lead in the film and sings the entire song, playback by great Mannada. I am requesting members to throw light on this please. Thank you.

Many songs and much of the background music employ harmonica as one of the major instruments. RD, an expert harmonica player, was not listed as an assistant music director for the movie. Jaidev was. Listed or not, I am pretty sure Senior Burmanda utilized the talents of young RD for this music.

Hemantda’s song “Yaad Aa Gayi” appears piece-meal three times in the film. The third time it is a complete song. I am uploading all three because the music preceding them is vastly different.

I am uploading above mentioned songs and others from this film in two back-to-back posts. Here are the songs starting in the next post...

(Rajinder Krishan) Payal (1957)

The combination of Hemantda and Rajinder Krishan produced several hit musicals. Even though the songs from this movie pale in comparison to their previous achievements (for example, “Nagin” in 1953 and “Champakali” in 1957), yet it has some nice songs. Both duets of Lata and Hemantda and a couple of solos by Lata “Maa” and “Piya” are worth mentioning. I am uploading these and other songs from this film in two back-to-back posts.

Here is the first set of songs…

(Shakeel) Beti (1969)

Here is another family drama where people with even some intelligence are portrayed as simply one dimensional. Either people are good and take all kinds of abuse from other heartless family members or people are bad that a wife has no problem in throwing out her own hapless unhealthy husband out of the house. In spite of some good songs sprinkled through out the movie, after watching it for a while it gets on your nerves. In the end you will start equally disliking both who are abusing and those who are taking the abuse without ever complaining.

The song “Aa Jaa” appears four times in the film (“Zindagi” is the fourth part). Some of the verbiage is the same but the lead music is different. I am uploading these and other songs from the film in two back-to-posts. Here is the first set of songs…

(Anand Bakshi) Haye Mera Dil (1968)

In 1960’s Kum Kum and Kishoreda as a leading pair appeared in several movies together. These include “Baghi Shahzada (1964)”, “Duniya Nachegi (1967)”, “Haye Mera Dil (1968)”, “Mr. X in Bombay (1964)”, and “Shreeman Funtoosh (1965)”. They also appeared in “Ganga ki Laharen (1964)” but not as the leading pair. All these films share some common traits. They were all commercially unsuccessful. They were all simply badly made. They all had good music. With such an enormous talent at his disposal one wonders why Kishoreda made so many poor choices.

As the above list mentioned, this is yet another bad movie that Kishoreda starred in. His antics in the film are so repetitious that you do not even feel like watching him or the movie. The only saving grace was that there are a couple of songs by Kishoreda, “Ijaazat Ho” and “O Bas”, that standout. Interestingly, the music director Usha Khanna had Mannada sing a couple of songs, “Jaaneman” and “Kaahe”, for Kishoreda. I am not sure what the criteria was here. Kishoreda could have easily sang those songs himself.

Incidentally a young and slim looking Prem Chopra appeared in a supporting role in the film. His screen persona as a “baddie” has not been crystallized yet. That was few years ahead of him. But it was nice to see him as a “softie” and as a good friend of Kishoreda.

Here are the songs mentioned and others from this film…
