Abhi Na Parda Giraao_ Movie: Shaque

Vasant desai

Audio devices were often seen in art films where the filmmakers used them as a good excuse to play a music piece of a legendary artist ..They depicted the protagonists as lovers of music and played music that I feel they ( directors) enjoyed. I am reminded of a sequence in Bhumika where Amrish puri is listening to a Thumri when smita patil walks in. Another sequence is a cute one in Kitaab where Uttam kumar is listening to Pt Ravi shankar when Master Raju walks in..He asks Raju. “Do you know who this is? .This is pt Ravi shankar, the world famous sitarist.”. Immediately sparks go off in Raju’s little brain- “Thats what I should do to get out if this school rut!. learn sitar!..”Ravi shankar ne sitar seekhne ke liye Geography thode hi padha hoga?!” he mumbles, pleased at his reasoning….and there are many more such examples. ..
In other instances filmmakers used audio devices to make songs seem real life..
And then in this sequence in Shaque this Kakaji is shown playing his recorded song to Shabana as he sings along…You can get a glimpse of the recording device at the begining.

दौर -ए- विंटेज ! Daur -e-vintage

vintage songs and details

कहते हैं किसी भी नयी चीज़ की बुनियाद पुराने से जुडी  होती है , ऐसा ही हमारे संगीत के साथ भी है . बहुत से कलाकार आये- गए और आज की तारीख में ‘इतिहास’ हो गए ,कुछ नाम शायद जगह पा गए ,और कुछ नाम अपनी अपनी गुमनामी में आज भी गुम हैं .ऐसी ही कुछ एक नामों का ,उनके काम के साथ थोड़ी बहुत जानकारी देती या कहें सहेजने की कोशिश करती ये पोस्ट .यहाँ दर्ज तमाम जानकारियाँ उन लोगों से हासिल की गयीं होंगी जिनका ‘रुझान’ /झुकाव ऐसे ही संगीत और लोगों से होगा .इसलिए इसमें कुछ कमियां ग़लतियां भी हो सकती है .पर फिर भी उदेश्य  नेक है ,यानी ‘अतीत’ हो चुके लोगों को पहचान दिलाने और दस्तक देने की एक छोटी सी पहल .

शुरुआत करते हैं  थोड़ी ‘धूम दाम‘ से 😉 : फिल्म – Dhoom Dhaam (1949) से के इस  गीत के साथ

.Aa Ja Aa Ja Maata Ji Meri Acchi Maata Ji—Baby Nirmala /  upload गजेन्द्र खन्ना
फिल्म के दौर  संगीत के साथ एक नाम जुडा  ( composed by sufi samaj [homi and yusuf] ) होमी और युसूफ का ,जिन्हें सूफी समाज के नाम से जाना गया .इन्होंने कितनी और किन किन  फिल्मों में संगीत दिया इसकी जानकारी आगे किसी पोस्ट पर. इस फिल्म से जुडी और जानकारियां बांटी गिरिधारी लाल विश्वकर्मा जी ने .जो कि इस तरह है .

गीत नम्बर 8 के साथ कौन से गीतकार का नाम जुडा हो सकता है इसका फ़िलहाल अंदाज़ा नही है ,कुछ एक नाम इसतरह हैं जो इसके गीतकार हो सकते हैं ,”Hazrat Lakhnavi”, K Diwan and Aziz Kashmiri.

इसी गीत को आप यहाँ सुन सकते हैं यू ट्यूब पर

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-Playback system was introduced by R C Boral in Calcutta in 1935 and in Bombay by Anil Biswas in 1937. By 1940 Play back system was very well accepted and well trenched in Hindi films. Each and every song was only by play back.ofcourse those actors/actresses who were singers themselves,were singing their own songs-but by playback only,and not by while shooting the scene.
