(Hasrat Jaipuri) April Foool (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.

All songs from this film were chart busters. S&J were assisted by Sebastian and Dattaram.

The song “Aa Gale Lag Jaa” I am uploading here has over 5 minutes of music preceding it. This is the “Pool Aquatics Show” in the movie. I am also uploading this separately as a music clip in the third post.

I am uploading all of the hit songs plus a few music clips from the film in three back-to-back posts. Here is the first set of songs…

(Shailendra) Chhote Nawab (1961)

This was comedian actor Mahmood’s first maiden production. Many of his family members were involved with this project. His father Mumtaz Ali wrote its story. His brother Usman Ali produced it. His son Lucky Ali appeared as a child Chhote Nawab in a flashback scene. His sister Minoo Mumtaz appeared in a supporting role in the film. However in this film, Mahmood did not appear as a comedian. But as a regular Bombay film world type hero.

With an uneven storyline and abrupt behavioral changes to the main character the film enjoyed only a limited success. But what lifted the film above the ordinary was its beautiful music. R.D. Burman (see his picture below) made a stunning debut as its music director. His first film would have been Guru Dutt’s 1959 film “Raaz”. It had lyrics by Shailendra and RD set music to three songs. But when Guru abruptly shelved the project, RD’s work never saw public light. Not until “Chhote Nawab” came along.

Mahmood was making plans to make “Chhote Nawab”. He approached S.D. Burman to compose music for his film. But Burmanda declined saying he was already busy with various projects. However, at Burmanda’s residence he met RD, who was playing Tabla. He immediately signed him up for his film as its music director. Later when someone asked Mahmood why he has chosen an unknown entity like RD to compose music. His response was that he was tired of RD constantly denting his car with never ending constant drum beats!

The first song RD recorded for “Chhote Nawab” was “Ghar Aa Jaa”. This was originally written for “Raaz”. This classic song sung by Lataji became an instant hit. From 1957 through 1961 SD, RD’s father, and Lata did not work together. The differences developed when Lata did not show up for one of her recording sessions with Burmanda. But SD immediately called Lataji to sing for his son’s debut film. Lataji without hesitation agreed and the differences between the two music giants Burmanda and Lataji evaporated instantly.

The soundtrack for the film offers variety of songs with a mixture of influences of eastern and western music. There are several good songs in the film. My favorites include the two solos by Lataji, “Chura Ke Dil” and “Ghar Aa Jaa” and Rafi Saab’s soul stirring “Ilaahi Tu Sunn Le”. I am uploading a brief second part of the song that also is in the first part. The second part singing may be of a little slower pace. I am not sure.

Incidentally, the assistant music directors of the film were Laxmikant & Pyarelal. Laxmikant was thinking of taking RD as his partner to become as an independent music director but when he received a call from RD to assist him he gladly agreed.

I am upload songs, specials, version songs, and a few instrumentals in four back-to-back posts. The first two posts contain all songs and some music clips from the film. The third post contains a few version songs and a couple of specials. The fourth and the final post contains a few instrumentals.

(Hasrat Jaipuri) Krorepati (1961)

This movie that was supposed to be a comedy but it is really not that funny. It had screenplay by I.S. Johar. Johar also co-wrote its dialogues.

The effort by Shankar & Jaikishan, who were flying high during these years, was below mark except for a couple of songs. Interestingly S&J decide to use Manna for playback of Kishoreda in a couple of songs. The song “Pehle Murghi” is one of them. Manna did a fair job with the song, but this one is a typical Kishoreda’s song. If he sang the song it would have been a blast. Mannada also lends his voice for Kishoreda in the duet “Aap Huye”.

The song of the album is Asha’s “Saawan Bann Gaye”. A beautifully rendered lovely song. The song is supposed to have the following mukhda that was missing in the DVD as well as the CD. The mukhda goes like this…

“Aye Aasmaan Ke Raahi Tu Hi Gawaah Rehna,
Thamta Nahin Hai Kab Se Inn Aansuon Ka Behna,
Tera Agar Guzar Ho Iss Desh Ki Taraf Se,
Koi Tadap Reha Hai Itna Hi Unn Se Kehna”


If anyone of you have this song with the above beginning, please kindly share it with rest of us. Thank you.

The other song is Lata’s solo, “O Saajna”. This seems to be inspired by some western tune. Nevertheless it is pleasant to listen to.

Here are these and other songs from this film…

(Majrooh) Kabli Khan (1963)

The movie is not that great but the songs are. This is one of the films in which dancer Helen appears as a leading lady.

There are several good songs in this film. The combination of Chitraguptji and Majrooh Saab click here once again. The fine songs include “Aye Hazrat”, “Chalo Jhoomte”, “Salle Ala”, and “Ya Hala”. I am uploading these and others below…

(Rajinder Krishan) College Girl (1960)

Rajinder Krishan wrote the screenplay, dialogues and lyrics for this Shankar & Jaikishan music directed film. Interesting thing about this is that in 1957 S&J decided to not work for B.R. Chopra who offered them to provide music for “Naya Daur”. S&J wanted to retain the services of Hasrat Jaipuri and Shailendra. Chopra insisted on Sahir Ludhianvi as the lyricist. So it is strange that three years later S&J here decided to work with Krishanji. Not until their debut film, “Barsaat” in 1949, S&J worked with no one else except for Jaipuri & Shailendra. Of course this movie is an exception. This thing changed when both Jaikishan and Shailendra passed away. Then Shankar, still under the name of S&J, started utilizing the talents of other lyricists. Not until 1968, Shankar worked again with Krishanji. In 1968, he worked with Rajinderji in “Brahmachari” for one song.

In spite of some good songs there is nothing to write home about this mediocre movie. Here are some of the lowlights, yes, lowlights of the movie…

• The movie starts with Vyjayanti Mala passing metric in first class! Uff!
• Next thing we know that she and Shammi are in the first year of college!
• Mala’s friend commits suicide on the marriage altar because she is forced to wed an 80-year old man. The reason given by her father is that he could not afford to give a dowry!
• Mala’s uncle, who is her guardian, stops her going from college because she participates in a college dance drama.
• Randhir professes that Mala is like his own sister and then tries to sexually assault her.
• So on and on…

Simply revolting.

As mentioned earlier there are a few good songs in the film. These are “Baabul Hum”, “Hum Aur Tum”, and “Pehla Pehla”. Coincidentally “Hum Aur Tum” starts as Rafi Saab’s super hit song “Hum Aur Tum” from the 1959 “Dil Deke Dekho” but soon diverges. Of these the standout song is Lataji’s, “Baabul Hum Tore”. It is an outstanding song with rich lyrics.

(Anand Bakshi) Aan Milo Sajna (1970)

There are no pretensions about what this film wants to be. It was made to thoroughly entertain the audience sprinkled with good songs. The movie was on the mark with such intentions. The only difference here was that instead of boy chasing the girl it was the other way around. Here the girl more or less was chasing the boy.

LP’s music and Bakshi Saab’s lighthearted lyrics enrich the entertainment value for the listeners. All songs became very popular. My favorite is Kishoreda’s “Jawaani O Diwaani”. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Dear Swarapriya thanks for this album.....

There is an interesting fact about this movie. Though there are 4 songs of KK in this movie but he was not credited for these songs... If you see the title page of playback singers section at the beginning of the movie, you won't find KK's name but all others. Even the female singer Radhakishen that u have mentioned is not there in the playback singers' list.

Wonder why the music director overlooked/ignored KK? This would have been rectified by producer or director or actors later stage....but none noticed this error.

For this Raj Kapoor’s film not only Burmanda composed music but had Kishoreda sing songs for Raj. Remember this was back in 1950. Raj did not yet settle on Mukesh as his voice. That was still a few years away.

My apologies for the poor quality of the songs even though some of them are decent enough.

(Anand Bakshi) Bachpan (1970)

This film was produced and directed by K.P. Atma who also wrote its story. He directed many movies in Telugu. His two earlier successes in Hindi include “Chhota Bhai (1966)” and “Raja aur Runk (1968)”. But this movie is a major let down. It has a weak and unconvincing story and does not leave any surprises as one can easily guess what happens next. Only its music was slightly above average.

Rafi Saab’s song “Aaya Re” appears five times in the film. The first one and the fifth one are identical. Therefore I am not uploading the fifth one. The first one is also part of the fourth one. I am uploading these four parts and others in two back-to-back posts.

(Hasrat Jaipuri) Roop ki Rani Choron ka Raja (1961)

This movie unfolds as a number of people travel on a ship on a pilgrimage. A cross-section of the people represent every walk in the life, good and bad, honest and thieves, helpful and greedy, spinsters and widows, and others. An interesting premise but the director did not take full advantage of the material at hand. Shankar & Jaikishan’s several good songs go waste on the film.

S&J were assisted by Dattaram and Sebastian, their usual assistant music directors. Subir Sen is one of the playback singers but was not credited. Interestingly, the song “Suno Bhaai” has two different versions. The one in the movie (DVD) is different than the one in CD. The DVD song has “Paa Li Hai” whereas the CD song “Pee Li Hai”. Otherwise both songs are identical. I am uploading both of them here. The quality of the CD song is far superior to the one of the DVD’s even though I am uploading both of them at 192 kbps.

(Majrooh) Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon (1963) - Songs

Here is one of the best scores by OP. All nine songs from this film were chart busters. It is easy to see why. They all are absolutely mellifluous. They charm you with reverberations generated by the choice use of rhythmic echoes. Even though the movie was a retread of Nasir Hussain Saab’s earlier movies, the music lifts the film from the run of the mill film to a likeable one. Asha (Bhosle) and Rafi Saab were at the top of the game and contribute mightily to the success of the film.

I have a couple of favorites in this film. These are Rafi Saab’s “Aanchal Mein” and the duet “Zulf Ki”. They both are very rich in lyrics and stir your emotions and affect deeply. Interestingly, for some reason the song “Zulf Ki” was deleted from the final film. But a shorter version of the song is available on many CDs. The full version is available in some videos. This song I am uploading in its entirety with all of the dialogues interspersed. I am uploading a version with the dialogues and applauses stripped. I enjoy this latter version as the dialogues serve no purpose in the song.

I am uploading these and the rest of the songs, few specials, and some instrumentals in four back-to-back posts. The first two posts contain songs from the film. The third post contains specials. Finally, the fourth post contains a few instrumentals of the songs from the film.

There is not much to write about this movie. It is so bad that it was difficult to watch. Even the songs, except for one, have not much going for them. The sole exception is Rafi Saab’s, “Ujad Gaya Panchhi”. Its lyrics remind you of another Rafi Saab’s song “Chal Udd Jaa Re Panchhi” from the 1957 film “Bhabhi”. Incidentally that was also written by Rajinder Krishanji.

(Hasrat Jaipuri) Sasural (1961)

This movie was based on the 1959 super hit Telugu film “Illarikam”. I read some place that the Telugu film itself was loosely based on Sharat Chandra Chatterjee’s novel “Kashinath”. I am not sure how accurate this information is. But one thing is certain. I don’t think Chatterjee, a brilliant novelist, probably never wrote a movie as entertaining as this purported to be. He was famous for tragedies, “Devdas” being an example of it.

The Hindi movie did not have either the soul or the spirit of the Telugu film. This was mainly because of the disappointing performances of most of the artistes, except possibly for Mahmood. Nevertheless it went onto break all records for a Hindi film. Much of the credit was due to several catching tunes composed by S&J, with the classic “Teri Pyaari Pyaari Surat Ko” by inimitable Rafi Saab. The team of S&J were assisted by Dattaram & Sebastian.

(Majrooh) Daal Me Kala (1964)

Character actor Bipin Gupta produced the film. Satyen Bose, who made films like “Jagriti (1954”), “Chalti ka Naam Gaadi (1958)”, “Dosti (1964)” and “Raat Aur Din (1967)” among others, wrote the screenplay and directed the film. My expectations of the film were high as I was hoping to see a good movie. But alas. It was a total disappointment. Except for its music, there is nothing in this film to write home about.

C. Ramchandraji was the music director of the film. He did a commendable job with several nice tracks. My favorite of the album is the Kishoreda’s number “Chaand Chup Chaap Hai”.

All songs from this album were ripped from a DVD. The quality of most of the songs is decent.

Here are some observations about the songs. In a couple of them Kishoreda impersonates a female voice. One of the songs is “Do Aankhen Janaani”. At the very beginning of this song, he sings with a female voice. The second song is “Duniya ki Bazaar Mein”. In this song Ramchandraji had Kishore song a portion of “Gore Gore” from his own composition from the film “Albela (1951)” in a female voice.

It is interesting note that in the song “Mohabbat Karna Hai” Chitalkar sings for Kishoreda. This comes close to the end of the song.

(Rajinder Krishan) Hum Hindustani (1960)

I was expecting to watch a patriotic movie because of its title. But alas. This is another ordinary movie that has nothing to do with patriotism. It was directed by Ram Mukherjee, father of the actress Rani Mukherjee. Ram also directed Dilip Saab’s “Leader” released in 1964.

Sanjeev Kumar made his debut with this film. He had a small role as a police officer. He comes almost near the end of the film. The movie also supposed to have Prem Chopra in it. But I failed to spot him. In a surprise twist, Helen in this movie has a supporting role opposite Joy Mukherjee and there are no dances by her. In the romantic role she does a pretty good job. Helen later quoted as saying that she was not offered such roles again because “Hum Hindustani” did below average business. However, the only noteworthy thing about the film was its beautiful music.

Usha Khanna followed her stunning debut of "Dil Deke Dekho" in 1959 with this beautiful album. If there were any doubts whether the success of "Dil Deke Dekho" was just a flash in the pan, this movie completely erased them. Here Khanna shows that she can be versatile in handling different singers. Whereas "Dil Deke Dekho" was all Asha and Rafi Saab, in this movie she also has Geetaji, Lata and Mukesh sing. She also joined the fray in a duet with Geetaji even though Khanna was not credited as one of the playback singers. The standout songs from this album are both solos by Mukeshji, "Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein" and "Raat Nikhri Hui", and his duet with Asha, "Neeli Neeli Ghata".

Parag Sankla, one of the members of this Forum of ours, wrote last time these songs were uploaded for one of my different threads that the lyricist K. Manohar’s (see Post 2) full name is Manohar Lal Khanna. He was father of Usha Khanna who composed music for this film. Per Parag, Mr. Khanna used various names in the films he worked in. These were K. Manohar (in this film), M.L. Khanna, or simply Mnaohar, and sometimes as Javed Anwar. Parag also wrote that in the late forties and early fifties he worked as a lyricist for an outfit called Nargis Films Arts. The film “Darogaji (1949)” was one of the films released under this banner. Mr. Khanna wrote lyrics for 12 songs of that film which had music composed by Bulo C. Rani. Geetaji sang all 12 songs.

(Anand Bakshi) Devi (1970)

This is another formulaic family drama that does not make any sense. Yet Hindi film industry kept on making such films in 60’s and 70’s, especially from the film makers from South. The music, like the movie itself, is very forgettable.

(Hasrat Jaipuri) Aashiq (1962)

Hrishida and Raj Kapoor became good friends after they collaborated in the 1959 blockbuster film “Anari”. Hrishida was looking for a right story so that he can rope in Raj for another film. When Vishwamitter Adil’s story of this film came along Mukherjee Saab was convinced that this would be the right vehicle. But as it turned out there was not much novelty in the story and this predictability and the high expectation set by this pairing proved to be downfall for movie’s success. This in spite of its beautiful music by Shankar & Jaikishan.

Every song from this film became a super hit. S&J were assisted by Dattaram & Sebastian. Interestingly, the music at the end of the song “Tum Aaj Mere Sang-1” had the similar tune of Hemantda’s super classic hit of Geetaji’s song “Piya Aiso Jiya Mein” from Guru Dutt’s “Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam”. However, like “Aashiq”, that film was also released in 1962. I am uncertain about the months these films were released during that year but my guess is that “Sahib” came early in the year and “Aashiq” later part of that same year.

(Majrooh) Ganga ki Lahren (1964)

The novelty of this film was the casting of Savithri, a magnificently marvelous actress from the South. One of the greatest actresses the movie industry has seen, she acted in nearly 300 films, mostly in Tamil and Telugu. She came into the limelight at the age of 15 years when she starred as Paru in the film “Devadasu” shot both in Tamil and Telugu. After the stunning success enjoyed by that film, she never looked back by reigning supreme . She was unchallenged for nearly next 15 to 20 years. Most film magazines from North used to call her as “Meena Kumari of South”. There is a website dedicated to her life, career, and movies. This is available at: www.savithri.info

This movie has several good songs. The song “Jaya Jayahey” (appeared four times in the film) and the duet “Machalti Hui” are standouts. I am uploading these and others in two back-to-back posts.
