(Rajendra) Chirag Kahan Roshni Kahan (1959)

This is another fine album by Ravi. Interestingly there is no Asha Bhosle song in this album, very untypical Ravi album indeed. However what is typical here is that this album has some very good songs. Rafi Saab's title song is one worth mentioning. But Lata's "Tim Tim Karte Taare" is a real beauty. Here are these and other songs from this album ...

(Sunil) Insaan Jaag Utha (1959)

At the risk of being repetitious, let me say that Burmanda does it again with this album. When it comes to melody I think Burmanda is defnitely on top of most music lovers' lists. Take for example the song by Geetaji and Asha, "Jaanu Jaanu Ri". An unforgettable listening experience. What a beautiful song. Very melodious. Just oozes with sweetness. How about that lovely duet by Asha and Rafi Saab, "Chaand Sa Mukhda"? This is one of my favorite duets of this pair. Almost all songs follow the same pattern of sweet melody.

I am also uploading a special version of the song "Jaanu Jaanu Ri" with Asha's introduction. It is taken from the album "Legends: Geeta Dutt - The Voice of Passion (CD 5)". This very same thing I heard Asha talk about in one of her concerts that I attended a few years back.

Shakti Samanta who produced and directed this movie, shot it almost entirely outdoors. The locale was Nagarjuna Sagar, in Andhra Pradesh, where the dam was under construction at that time. The site, atmosphere, and the buzz associated with the work of the dam fitted well with the movie's theme.

Most of these songs are by the courtesy of the Forum members. Thank you. Here is the sweetness ...

(Amitabh) Ek Nazar (1972)

Here is another Jaya-Amitabh starrer with all beautiful songs. They all sound very much like ghazals. Lata's song "Humeen Karen Koi Soorat Unhen Bulaane Ki", a beautiful one it is, sounds almost like Madan Mohanji's composition. Per EarthMusic website, I may be missing a song shown in red italics in the table below. If indeed this is the case, please kindly share. Thank you.

Here are the beautiful songs from this album ...

(Dharmendra) Ganga Ki Laharen (1964)

This movie starred one of my favorite actresses, Savitri, perhaps the greatest actress Indian movies have ever seen. I didn't see this movie, but I can say a few words about this great artiste (see the picture attached). I realize that one cannot capture what she was about in just a few words. My apologies for that. But here is a brief life story of this wonderful, radiant, and emotive actress of our times, Savitri ...

Savitri was one of the greatest actresses of Telugu cinema, if not our times. If she were a Hindi actress, she would be right up there with Meena Kumari and Nargis. During 50’s and 60’s she was the reigning queen of both Telugu and Tamil films. She had the top billing in most of the movies and her presence generally guaranteed success.

Savitri started as a bit star in Telugu films like “Samsaaram” and “Patala Bhairavi”. When the producers gambled to take her to play Parvati in the classic “Devadasu (1953)” in Telugu opposite Akkineni Nageshwara Rao (ANR), many felt it was simply foolish. But when the film was released she received rave reviews for her performance matching ANR scene for scene and the movie enjoyed unprecedented success. After this there was no turning back for Savitri.

“Devadasu” was also made and released in Tamil with the same pair at the same time and was also a resounding hit. This made Savitri a sought after star in Tamil as well. She continued to act in both languages and had a string of major hits to her credit. She ventured into Hindi movies when S.S. Vasan offered her a supporting role in “Bahut Din Huye” in 1954 with Madhubala in the lead. Subsequently she also appeared in “Sitaron Se Aage (1958)” starring Ashok Kumar, “Ghar Basake Dekho (1963)” with Manoj Kumar, “Ganga Ki Lahren (1964)” with Dharmendra, and “Balram Shri Krishn (1968)” with Prithviraj Kapoor.

Savitri’s crowning achievement as an actress came with the film “Chivaraku Migiledi (1960)”. She received the National Award for Best Actress for her brilliant and memorable acting in that film. This was a remake of the Bengali movie starring Suchitra Sen. It was remade into Hindi with Waheeda as “Khamoshi (1969)”.

She was married to the Tamil actor Gemini Ganeshan, father of the actress Rekha. Ganeshan already had several wives. The less I say about this it is better. Later on Ganeshan left Savitri and her kids for yet another woman. This was too much for her to take. The depression of the separation was devastating for Savitri. Her life took for a sorry turn and in the end when she passed away at the young age of 44 she was broke and helpless and very heartbroken.

How come all these brilliant actors seem to leave us so young with their rich legacy when they very well know that the life has so much to offer?

(Manoj) Dr. Vidya (1962)

Here is another brilliant work from Burmanda. Lata dominates with several solos and a duet. Mukesh Saab makes that occasional appearance for Burmanda with a beautiful solo. My favorite song of this album is "Pawan Diwani" by Lata, a trademark song of Burmanda. The melody of the song has that unmistakable SD's stamp all over it. You just can't miss it.

I am also uploading a couple of extended version songs, both contributed by the Forum members. Thank you. It appears, per EarthMusic, I may be missing the song shown in red italics in the table below. If indeed this is the case, and if you can, please kindly share it with rest of us. Thank you.

I will upload songs from this album in back-to-back two posts. Here is the first set of songs ...
