A tribute to old Hindi film music. Songs of the 30s through the 60s. Hamsadhwani was a favourite raga of Ustad Ameer Khan and he did a lot to popularize it in the North. Here is a tarana by him in this raga: Raga Gaud Malhar: Garjat barsat saawan ayo re by Suman Kalyanpur and Kamal Barot from Barsaat Ki Raat (1960), lyrics Sahir Ludhiyanavi, music Roshan. Sanjeev Abhyankar started off by modeling himself on Pandit Jasraj, but now he has evolved his own distinctive style. Here is his rendition of Ahir Bhairav. It sounds beautiful in his rich sonorous voice: – a song that has never left the top five positions in the list of my all time favorites. I wish to share with you here is a Shabad from Gurbani in Kalawati– Re man aiso kar sanyasa. This recording is in the voice of Asha Bhosle, as taken for the Punjabi Film Nanak naam jahaaz hai. One of the most appealing aspects of Sikhism for a non-Sikh is the quality of Sikh devotional music. I have to thank my colleague KBS Sidhu for posting the link on Facebook: Kedar is another raga, like Yaman and Bhopali,that combines the elements of shant, bhakti and shringar rasa. The iconic song is Darshan do Ghanshyam form Narsi Bhagat. Other songs in this raga are Hamko man ki shakti dena from Guddi and Main pagal mera manwa pagal by Talat Mahmood from Ashiana. None of the others, however, come close to Darshan do Ghanshyam with the voices of Hemant Kumar, Sudha Malhotra and Manna Dey beautifully complementing each other: Manmohana bade jhoothe by Lata Mangeshkar from Seema (1955), lyrics Shailendra, music Shankar Jaikishan. I was trying to motivate AK to do a few lists on songs based on ragas. He bounced it back to me, thanks to some pretensions I have of knowing something about classical music. I have accepted the commission with some reluctance, being well aware of how little I actually know about it. One more thing: while searching for classical pieces on Bhopali I came across this recording on Youtube by Ustad Sayeeduddin Dagar. I didn't include it in the section on the raga because it is long and slow. Moreover the dhrupad style of singing is not easy to appreciate for everyone. I would, however, strongly recommend that you try out this recording when you have some free time to yourself and just allow it to caress your mind. I have heard other members of the Dagar family and I can say without hesitation that they are the best practitioners of music as a form of prayer and meditation: Beena madhur mdhur kachhu bol by Saraswati Rane from Ram Rajya (1943), lyrics Ramesh Gupta, music Shankarrao Vyas. Raga Kalawati: Kahe tarsaye jiyara by Usha Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle from Chitralekha (1964), lyrics Sahir Ludhiyanvi, music Roshan. Raga Bageshree: Radha na bole na bole re by Lata Mangeshkar from Azad (1955), lyrics Rajendra Krishna, music C Ramchandra. Raga Ahir Bhairav: Poochho na kaise meine rain bitayee by Manna Dey from Meri Surat Teri Aankhen (1961), lyrics Shailendra,music SD Burman. Now listen to Pandit Jasraj present the same raga:. Years back, long before I developed an ear for classical music, I had read an article in a magazine on Khansaheb Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. A line remained in my mind– हमीर तो बड़े लोग गाते हैं, लेकिन गुलाम अली तो बस गुलाम अली हैं. I couldn't find a recording of Khansaheb's Hameer in the days of vinyl records and tapes. Internet has proved more resourceful: ( My friend Subodh Agrawal is a great music lover and a keen follower of my blog. He once suggested I write on films songs based on classical ragas. This was already in my mind, but then I realised Subodh is much better equipped to do it. I am grateful that he accepted my request to do a guest series of articles on this theme. This curtain raiser showcasing his favourite 10 iconic songs on different ragas is delightful to read not only because of his deep insight but also for his fluent and witty style of writing. I am sure there are many more to come from his pen.–. Raga Kedar: Darshan do Ghnashyam by Hemant Kumar, Mana Dey and Sudha Malhotra from Narsi Bhagat (1957), lyrics Gopal Singh 'Nepali', music Ravi. Film Songs Based on Classical Ragas (9)– Pilu. Bhopali is a subset of my favourite raga Yaman. It is essentially Yaman without the fourth and seventh note. Doing so takes away some of the gravity of Yaman and retains a feeling of pure joy. Another raga from the same family– Shudh Kalyan– omits these two notes in ascending movements, and includes them in descending ones and the mood falls somewhere between Bhopali and Yaman. Pandit Omkar Nath Thakur, in fact, didn't like the name Shudh Kalyan and insisted on calling it Bhoop Kalyan. For me the iconic composition in Bhopali is the famous Jyoti kalash chhalke composed by Sudhir Phadke from Bhabhi ki Chudiyan: Raga Hameer: Madhuban mein Radhika nachee re by Mohammad Rafi from Kohinoor (1960), lyrics Shakeel Badayuni, music Naushad. I had first thought of doing a list like 'My 10 favourite songs in raga XYZ'. I may yet get around to doing that for the major ragas music directors of Hindi film industry love– likes of Bhairavi, Yaman, Malkauns, Darbari, Pilu etc. What I have chosen to do now is to list ten iconic songs based on classical ragas that don't have such large repertoires of film songs. Years back when I was flirting with classical music and trying to get a feel for different ragas, these songs were used by my friend and teacher Pankaj Sharan to help me get that feel. Film Songs Based on Classical Ragas (9)– Pilu. List of Bollywood Movies shot in Ladakh and Spiti Valley. From First Playback singer WM Khan to current legend. A more accessible but classically flawless composition is the famous Sahela re by Kishori Amonkar:. Raga Kalawati: Kahe tarsaye jiyara by Usha Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle from Chitralekha (1964), lyrics Sahir Ludhiyanvi, music Roshan. . Telugu is one of the many languages he is proficient in. So it was only a matter of time that he would write on it. With this, all the four South Indian languages are covered– Venkataramanji and Anuradha Warrier having already done guest articles on Tamil and Malayalam respectively. Saagnee jeevitham jorugaa by AM Raja from Pratigya (1953), lyrics Sri Sri, music TA Kalyanam. Another raga from the south– Kalawati. Kahe tarsaye jiyara is the iconic composition in this raga; though another famous one is Koi sagar dil ko behlata nahin. I am presenting the former, as to me it captures the mood of the raga much better ( Koi Sagar has some elements of Janasammohini in it). Roshan has done a great job– as always: Your browser does not support JavaScript! Javascript is required for proper navigation. The picture today is entirely different. Now Telugu film industry is firmly on its feet, constantly challenging Hindi films. There are now more Telugu films dubbed and remade in Hindi that Hindi into Telugu. After the first film studio in South– Durga Cinetone- was built in Rajahmundry in 1936, today Hyderabad boasts of the world's biggest studio with production facilities– Ramoji Rao Film City (Guinness record certified). Hyderabad is the only city in India having 6 functional, all-purpose shooting studios and A.P (i.e. Seemandhra and Telangana states, now) has the maximum theatres (2809 out of India's total 10167 theatres) in India. Amit from Samastipur has booked Saregama Carvaan. You can book it too. Multiple Version Songs (12): Similar songs in Hindi. . The thumbnail in this post is the handbill of 'Bhakta Prahlad'. ). The series conceptualised by Mr Ashok M Vaishnav has grown way beyond what he may have thought initially. Arunji is known for the depth of his research and capacity for great detail. I thank him, as also Priya Laxmiji, Ambrish Sundaramji and Sudhirji, who have helped him in his endeavour.– AK ). Hi! My name is Nishant Srivastava, Founder of Filmy Keeday.

Oho basthi dorassani by Ghantshala and Jikki from Abhimanam (1960), lyrics Samudrala, music Ghantshala. Therenu korika by Ghantshala and Jikki from Kumkuma Rekha (1960), lyrics Arudra, music Master Venu. A few films like Chandralekha (1948) were made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Then it became a trend, borrowing freely from Hindi tunes. But sometimes even the Tamil/Telugu tunes were also copied in Hindi films. Later, making films in 2-3 languages diminished and gave way to making remakes in respective places. Thus Hindi remakes of Telugu films were made in Bombay and Telugu remakes of Hindi films were made in South. Similarly, the tunes were also exchanged freely. Popular songs were copied in Telugu (not necessarily in remakes only) to cash in on the popularity. In those days Hindi films were shown freely in South, without any problems. My sincere thanks to Shri Ambrish Sundaram ji, USA and Ms. Priya Laxmi ji of Hyderabad, for helping me out by providing film/song details and Shri Sudhir Kapur ji of Delhi for uploading some songs for me on You Tube. Our Indian cinema is known for its songs and dance sequences.
