(Majrooh) Mere Sanam (1965)

Here is a movie that instead of the huge miscast of Biswajeet as a hero and a terrible turn of Asha Parekh became a huge box-office hut. The story began by borrowing from the 1961 English comedy hit “Come September” but slipped into a hodgepodge of usual family and crime drama with many twists in between. The major reason the movie was a blockbuster was because of the phenomenal musical score by OP. Another reason was that in a brief role Mumtaz ignites the screen with her enticing presence.

Biswajeet in the lead desperately tried to ape Shammi. However hard he tried, he did not even come close to what Shammi could have done in the role. He was simply miserable to watch. Usually reliable Asha Parekh as the leading lady of the film did a sloppy job with her performance. Especially she butchered the beautiful song “Jaaiye” with very forgettable performance by twirling and twisting her body too many times. But it was a different story with Mumtaz. She appeared in the middle of the film but gave an endearing performance as a voluptuous vixen. Her unforgettable performance for the song “Yeh Hai Reshmi” was deliciously sweet and seductively sexy that stays with you for a long time.

It was OP’s inspired music that lifted the film from mediocrity to modestly watchable. Song after song, the movie delivered some unforgettable hits. This album was undoubtedly one of his best ones. He was ably assisted by G.S. Kohli and Sebastian.

I am uploading all the songs, specials, version songs, and some instrumentals in five back-to-back posts. The first two posts contain all of the songs from the film. The third post contains some specials and a few version songs. The fourth and the fifth posts contain several instrumentals of some of the songs from the film.

(Rajinder Krishan) Gateway of India (1957)

This comedy-cum-crime drama with many actors in it never took off properly even from the gate and falls flat as a comedy as well as a crime caper. Madhubala was in almost every frame of the movie and the rest of the crew come in and go around her at various times. The only redeeming feature of the film was some of its songs composed by Madan Mohanji. Song of the album is “Sapnon Mein”. Also, the songs “Na Hanso” and “Do Ghadi” are equally appealing.

Here are these and other songs from this film…

(Shakeel) Aadmi (1968)

This movie was based on the 1962 Tamil hit, “Aalayamani”. Tamil actor Veerappa who produced this movie went nearly broke trying to make this movie. After it became a huge hit in Tamil, it was remade in Telugu as “Gudi Gantalu” in 1964 and barely scraped its investment. This should have given a clue to Veerappa. Nevertheless, he decided to make it in Hindi and signed Dilipji to play the main lead. Dilipji was one of those actors who demanded a huge salary to act. Convinced that this movie will work in Hindi, Veerappa decided to sign Dilipji by agreeing to all of his demands.

After several years in production, mainly because of the financial difficulties of the producer, it was finally released in 1968 and proved to be a dud at the box office and was a financial disaster for its producer.

Ever so dependable Dilip Saab was not into his character. It was a feeble effort on his part. This must be one of his indifferent and weak performances. Manoj had a major role in the film. In real life he idolized Dilip Kumar while growing up. He even changed his name to Manoj after Dilip’s character in “Shabnam” made in 1949. It was one of his lifelong ambitions to work with Dilip Saab. This film offered him that opportunity. In a supporting role, Manoj’s performance was passable.

For many years I was under the impression that Naushadji’s music was perhaps a tad better compared to his last outing with "Ram Aur Shyam" but still feeble. In the last few years I changed my mind about it. I think Naushadji had composed beautiful songs. All songs are very appealing. Of course song of the album is “Aaj Puraana” by Rafi Saab. But both Lataji’s solos are beautifully composed and sung only the way she can. Interestingly Naushadji originally composed the song “Kaisi Haseen” with Rafi Saab and Talatji. But under pressure from Manoj, Naushadji yielded and recomposed the same song with Mahendra Kapoor and Rafi Saab. Until his death, for this “transgression”, apparently Talatji never forgave Naushad Saab.

I am uploading all songs and several instrumentals in three back-to-back posts. The first two posts contain the songs from the film. The third post contains several instrumentals of the song “Aaj Puraana”. Here is the first set of songs...

(Anand Bakshi) Barood (1976)

This was one of the earlier films of Rishi Kapoor who was riding high in popularity during those days. Parmod Chakravorty, who directed the film, originally considered Dharmendra for the role. He decided against it for a younger hero. Incidentally Dharmendra along with Hema Malini appear as guests in the film.

This film introduced a new leading lady in Shoma Anand. Even though the movie was a modest success, Anand made only few notable films, but today is still active in television.

The film has several veteran film actors headed by Ashok Kumar. When Dadamoni’s character is introduced we see him fighting, shooting, fencing, and other physically acrobatics activities one has never seen him do before.

The movie was shot extensively in many locations outside India. Some of these include New York, Zurich, Madrid, and Paris. It is an action oriented film that included all kinds of chases borrowed many from various Bond films. Because of this the background music played a big role in the film. I am including some of these music clips in the second post.

There are only a few songs in the film. In the first post I am including all these. Mukesh makes a rare appearance for Burmanda. But the standout song of the movie is Kishoreda’s unforgettable “Matlab Jo Samjhe”. A beautifully sung utterly engrossing song filled with emotion and pathos.

(Hasrat Jaipuri) April Fool (1964)

Shankar & Jaikishan made sure that this day, April 1, celebrated as an All Fool's Day around the world, will be remembered by the Indian music lovers forever by composing some of their beautiful and memorable music for this film. Subodh Mukherjee, who introduced Saira Banu in "Junglee" in 1960, is back here with another winner with her in this film, "April Fool".

I am uploading songs from this film in two back-to-back posts. Please note that the music clip “Pool Aquatics Show” in the first post is included in the song “Aa Gale Lag Jaa”. The beginning of this song is same as the “Pool” music. If you are downloading this song, then there is no need to download the music clip.

(Majrooh) Baraat (1960)

This movie tells the story of simple folks in a small village with a mixture of usual share of many good poor people and a few bad rich people. Shakila plays a poor girl who is the object of affection of both the parties. In between there is an usual dose of songs with Mukesh’s “Muft Hue” being a standout.

(Rajinder Krishan) Miss India (1957)

This movie came the same year as Mehboob Khan’s magnificent homage to undying spirit of womanhood “Mother India”. That movie also starred Nargis in the title role who gave the performance of a lifetime. When compared to that film this movie simply pales. “Miss India” also starred among others I.S. Johar, who also wrote its story, the screenplay, the dialogues, and was in-charge of its direction. Comedians Mehmood and Rajendra Nath have brief roles as goonies to Pran. For nearly half of the movie Nargis is donned as a young man. That precludes any chance of exploiting her talent as a great actress she was. Burmanda composed its music which was just about average coming from him.

Here are the songs from this film…

(Shailendra) Kanhaiya (1959)

This film was directed by the character actor Om Prakash from his own story for his producer brother Pachhi. It had great music by Shankar & Jaikishan. It was shot in beautiful Kashmir. It had the great star pair in Nutan & Raj Kapoor who were coming off the triumphant success they enjoyed with Hrishida’s “Anari” that was released earlier the same year. It seemed like it had all the ingredients to make it a hit. However, the movie was rejected by the audience mainly because of the hodgepodge of a storyline.

The only thing worth remembering about this film was its music. Dattaram was the assistant music director. All of the songs from the film were chartbusters. My favorite of the album is, one of the great songs by Mukeshji, “Mujhe Tum Se Kuchh Bhi Na Chaahiye”. A heart wrenching song with deep pathos. Utterly unforgettable. I am uploading this and other songs from this album in two back-to-back posts.

There is a dance drama in this movie that is based on the story of Snow White. In it Snow White is played by Waheeda. Helen plays the evil stepmother and the wicked witch. There are seven short people playing dwarfs. The music also borrows heavily from the 1939 classic English film “Wizard of Oz” where the dwarfs also double as munchkins. Here is this music piece and other songs from this film…

(Anand Bakshi) Night In London (1967)

Music saves this film from a hackneyed plot and poor direction. Much of the blame lies on an incohesive screenplay. Some of the songs of this movie are good, especially two solos by Rafi Saab, “Ba Hosh-O-Hawaas” and “Nazar Na Lag Jaaye”. Also the background music is excellent. LP makes extensive use of Jazz instruments, notably a trumpet, for most of the important scenes. I am uploading above songs and others plus several music clips in two back-to-back posts.

(Majrooh) Bombai Ka Babu (1960)

Here is another beautiful album from the great Burmanda. Every song, even after this many years, sound as fresh and beautiful just as its lovely leading lady Suchitra Sen. She was gorgeous in several scenes. The movie, directed by Raj Khosla, had a bold theme. A small time crook comes to hide in a village after mistakenly thinking that he committed a big time crime. Impersonating as the missing long lost son of an older simple folks, he was ready to accept them as his parents but not their daughter as his sister. This hint of incest in the story-line was a big downer for the movie with film-goers. The movie was well made and deserved better.

I am uploading songs, for which RD was the assistant music director to his father, in three back-to-back posts. The first post contains all the songs from the film from an original soundtrack album. My favorite of the album is the intoxicating duet “Deewaana Mastaana”. Incidentally, the tune for the song "Dekhne Mein Bhola Hai" was based on the hit Telugu song "Eruvaaka Saagaaro" from the film "Rojulu Maaraayi". That film was made in 1955 and introduced Waheeda Rehman as a dancer (an item girl in those days?) singing that song. The second post contains several music clips from the DVD. The third post contains version songs and instrumentals from various CDs and a video.

(Rajinder Krishan) Miss Mary (1957)

This was one great comedy with lots and lots of songs, but all just beautiful to listen to. L.V. Prasad, who later on became a big time producer and director of many hit Hindi films, directed this movie for AVM Studios. It was originally made in Telugu as "Missamma (1955)" and the same year they also made it in Tamil as “Missiamma”. Both these were made by Vijaya Productions and were huge hits. The story of the film was adapted from a Bengali novel by Yotish Banerjee called "Manmoyee Girls School".

Guru Dutt originally wanted to make this film in Hindi. Abrar Alvi, a friend of Guru, tells that he and Guru traveled to Hyderabad to see the Telugu version of the movie. But circumstances led them to meet instead Waheeda Rehman. Guru invited her to come to Bombay and work with him. Even though she initially said “no” to the offer later accepted and joined him for his film “C.I.D.” made in 1956. Alvi Saab says that they did manage to see "Missamma". However Guru was not impressed and decided not to make it in Hindi.

L.V. Prasad was common to all three versions of the film as the director. Actress Jamuna also appeared in all three versions. Jamuna, a popular actress in South, appeared in few Hindi films. She bagged the Supporting Actress award from Filmfare for her role in Prasad’s 1967 hit “Milan”.

Gemini Ganeshan, whose name appeared in the titles as Ganesh, this was huge a debut in Hindi. But he did not pursue his career in Hindi films.

Hemant Kumar who gave music to the film was so impressed with songs in the film versions in Telugu and Tamil that he decided to borrow one tune. "Brindaaban Ka Krishan Kanhaiya" is identical to the tune from the Telugu film.

I am uploading songs of "Miss Mary" from an original soundtrack album and the DVD in the first two posts. The third post contains instrumentals of a couple of hit songs.

(Shailendra) Love Marriage (1959)

Subodh Mukerji, who earlier made two blockbusters with Dev in “Munimji (1955)” and “Paying Guest (1957)”, produced and directed this film from his own story and the screenplay. This movie did only average business. Even that was thanks to the racy music composed by Shankar & Jaikishan. Most of the songs became very popular. The music director duo’s favorite was Lataji and invariably in their movies she was the dominant singer. This movie was no exception. They utilized talents of Geetaji in only eight films in which she sang a total of 11 songs. Two of them are from this movie.

I am uploading these Geetaji’s songs and others in two back-to-back posts. Here is the first set of songs…

(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.

(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.

(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.

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.

(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…
