(Amitabh) Saudagar (1973)

Here is a real beauty from the multi-talented Ravindra Jain who not only composed its music but also wrote some lovely lyrics. Almost all songs are melodious to listen to. Both solos by Asha have her typical singing style imprinted on them. There is a lovely solo by Mannada. But to me the standout song of the album is the one by Kishoreda, "Har Haseen Cheez Ka". A great song.

I am uploading all songs from the original soundtrack album below. Here is their description and the songs themselves ...

(Manoj) Gumnaam (1965)

The inspiration for this movie was the famous detective fiction by Agatha Christie. Christie’s novel was first published in 1939 under the title “Ten Little Niggers”. Later the name was changed and published as “And Then There Were None”. It was made into a movie with the title “Ten Little Indians”. When the movie became a hit, the publishers took the opportunity to republish the book with that name.

This is one of the best-selling novels ever written. It has sold over 100 million copies worldwide. There were many different plays written and almost all of them were successfully staged. Several successful movies were made for big as well as small screens. There are even video games with that title. This all goes to show that this mystery story remains as one of an enduring classics of the world literature.

The Hindi adaptation is really not much of a mystery like the original novel was. It is an entertainer. The mystery is only a pretext for eight people (yes, it is eight and not 10 as in the original novel was) trapped in a remote place in a beach side house drinking, singing, dancing, and making fun of each other. They seem to loose people one by one to murder and yet frolicking never stops.

The movie, which was a big hit, is immensely helped by some great music by Shankar & Jaikishan. Every song was a huge hit. Of course the title song was a trademark song for Lata, a chartbuster.

I am uploading all songs from the original soundtrack album in two back-to-back posts. Here is a description of the songs in the first post and the songs themselves …

(Raaj) Dil Ek Mandir (1963)

Here is one of the fine movies of early 60's. Even though the story on occasion drifts into some preposterous postulations, overall it was a very satisfying movie. The main reason was some of the fine performances by the principal actors and some great music by ever so dependable Shankar & Jaikishan.

This film was written and directed by Sridhar based on his hit Tamil film, "Nenjil Ore Alayam", released in 1962. Sridhar also remade this into Telugu in 1966 as "Manase Mandiram". I will upload songs from the Telugu film in this section after I am done with the Hindi songs.

This movie was made in a record 27 days. That is quite an accomplishment as the principal actors were all busy with their own respective schedules. What made this possible was the same crew that worked on the Tamil movie which was still fresh in their minds and an already proven tight script.

Raaj Kumar won for his performance the Best Supporting Actor award from Filmfare. Rajendra Kumar, who also starred the same year in "Sangam", was given a Filmfare trophy as the Best Popular Actor, a new category created just for him. Meena Kumari lost the award for Best Actress to Nutan in "Bandini". Arjun Dev Rashk, who wrote some powerful dialogues for the movie, won the Filmfare award in that category. S&J lost to Roshan for his unforgettable score in "Taj Mahal" in the Best Music Director category.

S&J utilize the talents of Suman Kalyanpur in some of the songs. She comes through in a great fashion. Her title song with Rafi Saab and her other two solos are beautiful to listen to. Lata also has a couple of beautiful solos and so does Rafi Saab. Overall a rich and great musical experience ...

Now for a description of the songs from the original soundtrack album and the songs themselves ...

Manase Mandiram (1966) - A Telugu Film

This movie was a remake of the hit Tamil fim "Nenjil Ore Alayam" made in 1962. It was also made into Hindi in 1963 as "Dil Ek Mandir". Whereas both Tamil and Hindi versions were huge hits, Telugu film inexplicably bombed.

I am including three songs from the Telugu film below. I know for sure that there is at least one song is missing. This is shown in red italics in the table below. Quite probably there are more songs missing. If you happen to have them, I am requesting members to kindly share. Thanks.

Here is a description of the songs and the songs themselves ...

(Rajendra) Akeli Mat Jaiyo (1963)

Here is a beautiful album from Madan Mohanji where every song is a winner. It has one of my favorites of Lata, "Woh Jo Milte The Kabhi". This song written by Majrooh Saab has that Raja Mehdi Ali Khan touch because that is the way Raj Saab writes his songs.

I am uploading these songs in back-to-back two posts. The first post contains all of the songs from the original soundtrack album. The second post contains extended versions of several of these songs.

Now for the details of the songs in the first post and the songs themselves ...

Concluding the Songs from "Akeli Mat Jaiyo (1963)" ...

I am posting below several extended versions of the songs from this film. The classic by Lata, "Woh Jo Milte The Kabhi", is only 19 seconds longer than the one on CD. It has no extra words in it but there is some extra music.

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

(Amitabh) Zanjeer (1973)

This is the movie Amitabh was patiently waiting to happen. After his stunning award winning debut in 1969 with Abbas's "Saat Hindustani" and even after some good roles like Hrishida's masterpiece "Anand" in 1971, Amitabh was still down on his luck as a struggling actor and was desperately trying to find his niche. Then "Zanjeer" happened. The role originally offered to the debonair Dev Anand was offered to Amitabh when Dev turned down because there were no songs for the hero!

In a way "Zanjeer" is an out and out a great cop movie that redefined a Hindi film hero, the one who fights back for the justice, the one who is brooding and angry. In a nutshell an "Angry Young Man" was born. However, unfortunately the movie also brought on an abrupt end to good romantic films which were elevated to some what of a higher status with series of hits by the Superstar Rajesh Khanna. Now the films became solely action oriented. Movies in which women have any good role to play just about disappeared.

"Zanjeer" was a well conceived and well directed taut thriller with a superb performance by Amitabh and an equally endearing performance by Pran. The movie took away several Filmfare awards. The writing team of Salim & Javed were awarded for the Best Story and the Best Screenplay. Mahadik walked as the Best Editor for his crisp editing that kept the movie's suspense at a taut pace. Finally, Gulshan Bawra won for the Best Lyrics for that great Manna's song "Yaari Hai Imaan Mera". All well deserving awards.

The film was made into Telugu the very next year with N.T. Rama Rao playing the lead. It also became a super hit. I will upload songs from the Telugu version, "Nippulaanti Manishi", following uploads of the Hindi songs.

Now for a description of the songs from an original soundtrack album and the songs themselves ...
