(Rajinder Krishan) Albela (1951)

Most of the following write up appeared in one of my earlier posting about this film...

Albela was one of those rags to riches story that is at once sweet and endearing. Comedian Bhagwan, besides acting in the movie in the title role, wrote the story, screenplay, and directed the movie. Music was by C. Ramchandra. Bhagwan was the first one to recognize the musical talent of C. Ramchandra and offered him to provide music for his film "Sukhi Jeevan (1942)." C. Ramchandra at this point in his life was heavily influenced by the Western Jazz music. His favorite Jazz musician was Benny Goodman. Some songs in "Albela," such as "Deewaana Parwaana" and "Shola Jo Bhadke" had a mixture of many western musical instruments such as trumpets, clarinets, saxophones, drums (bong), and others. These songs, and most of the songs of "Albela" overflow with gaiety and exuberance. It is like an unending one continuous celebration. Even after 62 years, they sound fresh, proving that beautiful music stays young forever. Songs were penned by Ramchandra's favorite, Rajinder Krishan.

This movie became a huge hit and the actor Bhagwan became a very rich man. But alas. He followed this with series of movies most of which were complete misses. After squandering away his wealth, he found himself penniless. His was the story of rags to riches to rags again.

I will upload these songs from this album in three back-to-back posts. The first two posts contain songs from an original soundtrack album. The third post contains several extended version songs.

(Shailendra) Anarkali (1953)

Originally Basant Prakash was signed as a music director for this film. After recording just one song with Geeta Dutt, he died. Filmistan considered several alternatives but finally decided on C. Ramchandra as the composer. With the thundering success he enjoyed with Lataji as the principal singer for his 1951 hit “Albela”, Ramchandra wanted Lataji to sing all the songs. He requested producers to scrap Geetaji’s song from the film altogether. They agreed on both counts. However when the film was released, the producers reneged on the promise they made to Ramchandra and left Geetaji’s song intact in the film.

The film was one of the biggest hits of the year as well as the decade. Its music smashed all records. It was rumoured that Filmistan sold so many LPs of the film in its release year that it recuperated all of movie’s costs from these sales. They continued to reap benefits of the outstanding music of this film as the album kept selling like hot cakes even into late 50’s.

The music of this spell is simply magic. It casts spell over you. Its rich lyrics, the singing of Geetaji, Lataji, and Hemantda that has such deep feelings, and the liltingly melodious soft compositions lull you into another world of an unforgettable charming love.

(Anand Bakshi) Return of Mr. Superman (1960)

The year 1960 saw two movies dealing with the theme of “Superman”. This one and another named simply as “Superman”. Originally both had the same name but when producers of this movie I am uploading songs of realized it, they changed it to the current title. Incidentally in both films actor Jairaj played the Superman’s role.

The special effects of this movie were anything but special. The unfolding of the story was bad and the treatment of the subject was unimaginative. The only redeeming feature of the film was its music. Anilda composed music for the songs and he does not disappoint. I am uploading songs and several music clips of this film in back-to-back two posts. Here is the first set of songs…

Hello Raman,

I rechecked my database. I have transcribed the same data from it to the table you see. Now you bring up the subject here, I strongly suspect that my data probably is in error. Sometimes these things happen. When I looked for the singer details on the net I found them to be: Lata, Mahendra, Manna, Nitin Mukesh & Shailendra Singh. Now I am totally confused. I am requesting members who have the Geet Kosh available to please kindly confirm the singer list for this song. My many thanks.

Thanks again Ramanji for bringing this up.

Cheers,

(Majrooh) Aar-Paar (1954)

Before Guru Dutt made himself as a maker of thought provoking memorable movies, he exhibited his skills as a superb director of several end-to-end entertainers starting with his maiden directorial venture in Dev Anand’s classic “Baazi” in 1951. Most of these his early movies followed a similar pattern. One strong point of all of them was their music.

The whole soul of “Aar-Paar” was its music. O.P. Nayyar never looked this better. Youthful, exuberant, effervescent, down and out entertaining, these are some of the words that describe its music. A light hearted cheekiness is written all over these liltingly melodious songs. After nearly 60 years, these songs still sound as fresh and as lovely as they were at the time they were first heard. The movie rode on the strength of its music and became a hit. The unforgettable music of OP had strong support in Majrooh Saab’s lovely lyrics and the enchanting voices of Geetaji, Shamshadji, and Rafi Saab.

It doesn’t take away in any way the greatness of OP that couple of songs he composed were borrowed from Western musical hits. The song “Baabuji Dheere Chalna” was based on the 1947 Cuban hit song, “Quizas, Quizas, Quizas” by Oswaldo Farres. The song “Sunn Sunn Sunn Zaalima” was based on the hit “Sing Sing Sing”. I believe Bing Crosby was its singer.

Geetaji’s lovely voice was in full display in this film. She sang seven out of eight songs, four solos and three duets with Rafi Saab. The crooning, the humming, no wonder why many think that her voice simply glides away. If there was one who had voice soaked in honey, hers probably was it. A wonderful range and an awesome display of her vocal talents showcase these songs.

I am uploading songs from this film in two back-to-back posts. The first post contains songs from an original soundtrack album. The second post contains extended version songs. Their source is a DVD. These longer versions all have extra music and some songs also have extra mukhdas.

(Rajinder Krishan) Bahar(1951)

Vyjayanti Mala was barely 13 years old when she was offered the star role in the Tamil film “Vazhkai” in 1949. The director of the film, M.V. Raman, was a friend of Mala’s parents. He was impressed with her dancing skills and decided to take her in the lead in spite of her young age. The movie became a super hit. It was remade in Telugu the very next year in 1950 as “Jeevitham” with Mala reprising her role once more. The Telugu film also was a hit. It was then remade in Hindi in 1951 as “Bahar”. This was the first Hindi film for Mala. She learned Hindi and dubbed her own voice for the movie. The Hindi film also was a success.

In a miscast, Karan Dewan, who was the hero of this film, looked old and tired opposite a youthful and bubbly Vyjayanti Mala. In real life, he was 20 years senior to her and that really showed in the movie.

The movie when you see it now looks very dated. It is a family drama with a familiar theme. But the story was only a subplot of the movie. The real thing was that the producer and the director wanted to showcase dancing skills of the heroine, Vyjayanti Mala. A trained dancer she is, she does a splendid job of exhibiting her proficiency at dancing.

Burmanda didn’t give music to too many movies produced in South. The music of this film became a hit. Rajinder Krishan, who wrote lyrics for this film, his first for a South made film, became almost a permanent fixture for many more Hindi films to come from South. Parag Sankla, a friend and a member of this Forum, tells that Krishan ji whose demand in South soared went to the extent of learning Tamil so that producers and directors from South could be comfortable working with him.

This probably was one movie that Burmanda utilized talents of Shamshadji to a great extent. She has five beautiful solos, all picturized on Vyjayanti Mala. I am uploading these and other songs from this film in two back-to-back posts. Here is the first set of songs…

(Shailendra) Aurat (1953)

This film as it claimed was based on a Biblical story. But it was freely adopted from Cecil B. DeMill’s enduring classic, the 1949 box-office hit “Samson and Delilah”. Bina Rai reprised the role played by the beauty with brains, Hedy Lamarr. Prem Nath played Victor Mature’s role. Purnima played Angela Lansbury’s role.

The Hindi film was only a moderate success. Bina Rai and Prem Nath, the two principles in the movie, fell in love while shooting for this film and soon after its completion got married.

(Javed Akhtar) Silsila (1981)

Most of the following write up appeared in one of my earlier postings of this album...

There was much buzz generated when this movie was under production. The buzz continued through even after its release. Many felt that the story revolved around Amitabh Bachchan’s personal life with all three real life principals, Jaya Bhaduri, Rekha, and Amithabh, playing the respective roles also in the film. The movie, beautifully photographed in lush locations, with rich lyrics by various writers, and refreshingly new type of music seemed to have everything going for it. Yet, it proved to be a flop at the box office.

Here are some of the highlights of this film…

1. The producer and director of the film, Yash Chopra, wanted to make a film on the subject of extra marital affairs. (Incidentally Yash’s older brother Bal Raj already made on the same subject a successful movie in 1963 called “Gumrah”.) Yash had Amitabh in mind for the central role, so he spoke to Amitabh first. When Amit agreed, Yash and one of his friends who was an Air Wing Commander stationed in Delhi, developed the story fully.

2. This was the first film composed by the music director pair Shiv (Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma) & Hari (Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia).

Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma (see the attached portrait), the co-music director of this film, is a world renowned santoor player. He is a recipient of many awards, among them Padma Bhushan from the Government of India. He published much of his work by releasing records and is recognized throughout the world as an eminent artiste in his field. In partnership with Pt. Hari Prasad Chaurasia, he gave music to about seven films.

Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia (see his picture below), the co-music director of this film, is a flutist par excellence. He reached out with his performances to both masses and classes alike. He is a recipient of many awards, among them Padma Vibhushan from the Government of India. He has released innumerable discs during a lifetime that has been enriched with many awards throughout the world. In partnership with Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma, he gave music to about seven films.

When Yash told them about “Silslia”, they wanted a month to compose the songs and show the results to Chopra. They came back with two or three tunes for each of the songs to show a pleased Chopra. It was Yash who finally selected the tunes.

3. This was the first film for which Javed Akhtar wrote lyrics. He wrote for five songs for this debut film. In the years to come he will prove himself to be one of the great lyricists among the contemporary writers.

4. Amitabh’s father also wrote a song for this film, the Holi song, “Rang Barse”. It was also a first film for Harivansh Rai Bachchan. In the movie not only it was picturized on Amitabh, but Amitabh also sang the song as well. The tune for this song also was composed by Amitabh himself.

5. Amitabh also composed another song for the film, “Neela Aasmaan So Gaya”. This was independently sung by Lata and Amitabh.

6. “Silsila” was the first and the last film in which Jaya and Amitabh appeared on screen together, after their marriage.

7. Originally Padmini and Parveen Babi were considered for the respective roles Jaya and Rekha played in the movie. Later Smita Patil also was considered for Jaya’s role. Eventually, Jaya was cast as Amitabh’s wife. Finally when Rekha was suggested to be the other woman, Amitabh wanted Yash to talk to Jaya about this first. With Jaya’s nod the role went to Rekha. This was the last movie in which Rekha and Amitabh appeared together.

8. Shashi Kapoor & Sanjeev Kumar had cameos in the film even though Sanjeev had a bigger role.

9. “Dekha Ek Khawaab” was the first song picturized on a foreign location for a Yash Chopra film. It was the first Hindi film to be shot in Amsterdam. Raj Kapoor followed Yash to shoot “Prem Rog (1982)” for the song “Bhanvre Ne Khilaayaa Phool” in the same Tulip field.

10. Rekha, who told Yash that she wanted to look her best for this film, designed her own wardrobe and used her own personal jewelry. Rekha definitely looked stunning in many scenes.

11. Yash thought the film flopped because of the extramarital affair at its central theme. He was of the opinion that his film was made at least ten years ahead of its time and the audience was not ready for such a subject. It appears like Yashji forgot the movie his brother made, “Gumrah” in 1963 that had similar theme and was very popular.

I am uploading the songs from this lyrically rich melodious album from a DVD in five back-to-back posts. Their quality is impeccably good, as good as from a CD. I do have the original soundtrack CD album. I compared durations of the songs from DVD to CD and found that most of the songs on the original soundtrack CD album are the same except DVD has few extra ones. Also the DVD version of “Yeh Kahaan Aa Gaye” is one minute and 45 seconds longer. The first two posts contain all the songs from the film. Third and fourth posts contain various instrumentals. The fifth post contains an extensive interview Yash Chopra gave on the making of “Silsila”. The interviewer is the director Karan Johar of “My Name is Khan (2010)” and other movies fame.

(Shailendra) Do Bigha Zamin (1953)

This was the first film as a producer for Bimal Roy who also directed the movie. The movie is considered to be a milestone in Indian Cinema history. Roy was greatly influenced by the Italian neo realism movement, more specifically by the work of the great Italian director Vittorio De Sica. Roy saw De Sica’s acclaimed “The Bicycle Thief (1949)” at the First International Festival held in Mumbai and was awe struck by its graphic realism. This eventually led him to produce “Do Bigha Zamin”. The impact of the movie was unexpected. It paved the way to parallel cinema in India.

Bimaly Roy (see the attached picture below) who hailed from a well to do family started out as an assistant cameraman in 1929, when he was barely 20 years old. One of the films he worked on was P.C. Barua’s classic “Devdas (1935)”. Later on he became a full cameraman. He edited few films, one notable being history making “Mahal (1949)”. He also wrote screenplays for few films. He directed several Bengali films before turning to Hindi. He also made few notable documentaries. As a producer he made 15 films.

Roy was showered with numerous awards throughout his professional career. He was the recipient of 11 Filmfare Awards (in various categories), six National Film Awards, and the International Prize of the Cannes Film Festival for the film “Do Bigha Zamin”.

The story of the film was written by Salil Chowdhury (see the picture below). Before this Chowdhury had only one movie to his credit. He gave music to and wrote lyrics for a Bengali film in 1951, “Barjatri”. When Roy asked Salilda to provide music for the film, he readily agreed. This was Salil Chowdhury’s first Hindi film.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee (see the picture below) also made his debut in 1953. He was the editor for both Hindi films Roy directed in 1953, “Zamin” and “Parineeta”. Besides, Hrishida also wrote the screenplay of “Zamin” and was one of the co-directors of the film.

Balraj Sahni, who gave one of the memorable performances of his career, was not an original choice of Roy. He considered other actors but after seeing the performance of Sahni in “Hum Log (1951)”, Bimalda offered him the role. Sahni practiced pulling a rickshaw by studying from Calcutta rickshaw pullers. He used to have his son and daughter as passengers in the rickshaw and pull them on the streets.

Nirupa Roy wore rags to provide a rustic look for her role. She bought these in Mumbai’s Chor Bazaar.

Meena Kumari appeared a guest in the film. She was working on “Parineeta” and heard Roy who also was directing “Parineeta” talk about “Zamin” on the sets. She pleaded with Roy to be part of the movie and Roy gave her a guest role.

At the inaugural Filmfare Awards, “Zamin” was chosen as the Best Picture and Roy was adjudged as the Best director.

Of the may well deserved accolades Bimalda received for his outstanding film, many think one by Raj Kapoor stood out. After seeing the movie Raj was so impressed with it that he told Roy that “How I wish I had made this film!”

There are only a few songs in this film. I am uploading these below…
