Today’s song is from the film Bade Bhaiyya-1951. It is sung by G M Durrani and Shamshad Begum. The film was produced by Super pictures, Bombay and was directed by Aspi Irani. The music was by composer Premnath.

Composer Premnath is an ideal case of ” Same Name Confusions”. Since his name coincides with the more well known actor Premnath, operating almost in the same period, people misunderstood that Actor Premnath and composer Premnath were the same person. Surprisingly, actor Premnath was a good singer himself and had been trained by professional Ustads for classical music, but he could never fulfil his desire of becoming a singer and became an actor instead. However he did a film song, which was posted on this blog by our Sudhir ji sometime back-if I am remember right. But the fact remains that the music director Premnath was different from the actor Premnath..

PREMNATH the Music Director was born on 5-7-1918 in Gujranwala,Punjab. He learnt music from experts in Amritsar,Multan and Lahore He acted in films like Shahr-e-khamoshi and also sang in Sohni Mahiwal-1938.

After marriage, he moved to Bombay. His first film as a Music Director was Rangbhoomi-1946. In this film ,a novice Mohd. Rafi sang many songs for him. His other films were Dehati-47,Chandrahas-47,Sagar’s Pehla pyaar-47. He then produced a film ” Chand sitare”-48 under the banner of Ravindra Art productions. Mukesh, Lata and Geeta Roy sang in it. In the film ‘Alakh Niranjan’-50, he used Mohd. Farooqui,Sulochana Kadam and Rajkumari.

Premnath gave music in many films of Super pictures of Aspy irani like Bade Bhaiya-51 and Maya Machhindra-51, in which Surendra,Geeta, Rafi and Shamshad sang. His another film ‘Qatil kaun’ in late 50s was not released. Rafi,Asha,Manna Dey,Mubarak Begum and Shamshad had sung songs in this movie.

His films subsequently diminished. Sati Vaishalini-59, Main hoon jaadugar-65 and Tarzan in Fairyland-68 were his last films.

After he stopped work as MD, he devoted his time for the welfare of Cine Artists as a trade union leader. He served the music Directors Association for 30 years as its secretary.

He died in the first week of may-1993 at the age of 75 years.

The film Bade Bhaiyya was directed by Aspi Irani, who was basically famous for stunt and C grade films. Aspi Irani was an important director from the early films. His full name was ASPANDIAR HORMUSJI IRANI.He was born in the Parsi colony, Panch Gardens in Dadar,Bombay on 8-10-1911. He started work in the film industry after he completed his secondary schooling and as all parsis are,due to his hard work,he soon attained a top rank in the Industry.He started directing filmsfrom 1936,the early Talkie stage,when the influence of ParsiTheatre,fantasies and dramas on folklore was the staple of stunt films.All such films had a basic structure and with a little changes here and there new films hit the screens.

There was a fixed audience for such films, but as the time went by,slowly the taste of the audience changed.However Aspi Irani continued with his style till the end.He did direct few social films also but the handling of social films had a clear stamp of Aspi’s direction.
He must have directed about 50-55 films till the early 80s. Some of his films were,Naya paisa,qaidi no.911,Barood,Shabnam,Badal etc.
On a fine morning on 23rd November 1986,Aspi left his home in the morning for work and never ever returned.No one knows what happened to him.Since then there was no trace of this man and officially he was declared ‘missing since 23-11-1986′. What an end to a legend !

This film had 8 songs, out of which 4 songs were duets of Durrani and Shamshad Begum, None are yetTwo songs from this movie are posted on the blog in the past. Another song from the movie is being discussed here.

The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy ( you will see her dancing on the stage -an unusual role for her), Suresh, Agha, Nazir Kashmiri, Husnbanu, Naaz, Minu, Yaqub etc. The story of the film was…

Astrological predictions some times do come out to be true as it happened in the case of Bankey( Suresh) and Bansi ( Agha), two small kids, about whom the Astrologer foretold that they will feed thousands of hungry souls when they grow up. As they grew up they found themselves employed in a restaurant serving food to thousands of people daily. They however could not stick to their jobs for long, due to their virtue of being too honest. Bade Bhaiya and Chhote Bhaiya, as they fondly called each other, got jobs in a touring carnival little knowing what hazards the fate had in store for them.

However Bade Bhaiya, through sheer strength of his will, used to infuse such a high degree of confidence in Chote Bhaiya that Chote Bhaiya managed to perform most dangerous feats such as Motor Cycle jump, Dare devil ride on motor bike in well of death & plunging into a fire tank from a height of 100ft. They became the heroes of the carnival very soon but they lost no time in losing their her hearts as well. Bade Bhaiya -Agha- fell for Madhuri-Nirupa Roy- the beautiful daughter of the carnival owner and Chhote Bhaiya went mad after another Carnival girl named Bijli-Husn banu.

While the two heroes were trying to win over the love of their respective sweathearts another drama was being enacted between a Jagirdar and his son Manohar( Yaqub), not very far off. The father insisted that the son should marry Lalita-Naaz-, an orphan, brought up by himself, while Manohar, the son, having little belief in marriages refused to accede to this fathers wishes and left his abode and got himself employed as motor driver, to Madhuri. His good looks and his talent as converstionist won him a soft corner in Madhuri’s heart.

Finally,inspite of machinations of Manohar, Madhuri realises her love for Bansi and Manohar goes back to marry Lalita. Bankey and Bijli too are united.

Let us now enjoy a duet from this film, sung by G M Durrani and Shamshad Begum…

Today’s song is from an obscure mythological film Veer Arjun-1952. It is sung by G M Durrani. It is a Bhajan. Durrani has hardly sung any bhajans in his career,so in a way,this is a rare song. Moreover the bhajan starts with Sanskrit shlokas, which Durrani has sung with surprising ease and clarity. He must have really taken lot of efforts to do this.

Today’s song is from film Diwani-1947. It is sung by Gyan Dutt and Sunanda Kkamath-both making their debut on this Blog as singers.

What is the difference between a “Popular Award ” and a ” Critic’s Award” ? Which is more important ? Which is more desirable by a Composer ? these questions have no ‘ right’ or ‘wrong’ answers. Personally I feel a composer who wins both awards is a true music maker. But then it is very rare. At least I don’t remember any composer who was applauded by both – the people and the Critic.

I also do not know what is the basis for giving these awards. Why Critics don’t like Popular music ? What do they consider as good music ? Perhaps even the Critics may not be able to answer these questions.

In case of Actors, it is a different matter. There are two clear cut categories. The Popular actor and the parallel or the new Wave actor. Shaban Azmi, Farooq Shaikh, Naseeruddin Shah, Sadhu Meher, Anant Naag, Dipti Naval etc were considered small cinema actors (Not that they did not do commercial cinema, but it was for financial reasons). Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra, Amitabh, Manoj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Raj, Dev, Dilip were clearly the popular variety. Amongst these, hardly anyone ( may be Sanjeev Kumar) did the small cinema. Similarly, there were specialised Directors too for Parallel cinema, like Benegal, Karnad, Govind Nihlani,Satyadev Dubey etc, while Manmohan Desai,Sippys,Chopras etc were directors of Commercial movies.

In Music Directors, however,there may not be any one who succeeded in both varieties ( may be Jaidev). I am sure most composers wanted to remain Popular and those who could not become Popular-in the Traditional way- slid towards the other group,if not all,but the majority. Thus OPN, Naushad, L-P, K-A, S-J never cared for Critics and small timers like Kanu Ghosh or Kanu Roy craved for Critic’s acclaim.

There were a few composers who were neither here nor there. Gyan Dutt was one of them. True, in his time there was no Parallel cinema, but Critics were very much there. Though he operated from 1937 to 1965-almost 30 years, he never became famous as some of his contemporaries like, Anil Biswas, C.Ramchandra, Naushad etc. He was a Bengali born in Bangalore. There are conflicting reports not only about his Birth year ( 1915 or 1920),but also about Birth place. Some sources say he was born in East Bengal. It is pitiable that during his lifetime no one ever tried to confirm these details. So much for our concern to record history !

As was the practice those days, Gyan Dutt ( real name Jnanan Dutt) was employed by Ranjit studios ( “we have more stars in our studio that there are in the sky”), along with other composers. He composed music for 25 films in Ranjit from 1937 to 1940. Khemchand Prakash, who replaced him in Ranjit did 20 films from 1940 to 1945 and then it was Bulo C Rani who did about 25 films after 1945 onwards. For most films of Gyan Dutt in Ranjit the film directors were Gujaratis like, Jayant Desai, Chaturbhuj Doshi, Chandulal Shah, Manibhai Vyas etc. He was called Pandit Gyan Dutt.

In those days, hero and Heroines used to sing their own songs. Thus his songs were sung by Waheedan bai, Khatoon, Kalyani,Sunita Devi, Ila Devi, Madhuri, Sitara, Indubala, Vasanti, Savita Devi, Miss Rose, Meera, Gauhar, Snehprabha Pradhan etc.Among males it was Ishwarlal, Kantilal, Ghori, Bilimoria, Charlie etc.

Gyan Dutt gave music to 58 films, but songs from only Saigal’s Bhakta Surdas-42 and Raj kapoor’s Sunehre Din 49 are well known. Actually songs of Aapki Marzi-39 and Sant Tulsidas-39 were also popular in those days. Khursheed sang many songs for him. He also sang a few songs himself. His last film was janam janam ke Saathi-1965.

His death came on 3-12-1974 in Bombay. Unfortunately except for a small time less known composer Sapan Chakravarty,no one from the film industry attended his funeral and a good composer died unsung,unknown and all alone !

Film Diwani-47 was a Minerva movietone film. It was directed by Y.D.Sarpotdar ( brother of another director – producer Nanasaheb Sarpotdar). He was basically a good Cinematographer and began his career in 1928 with Shri Balaji. After doing 12 silent films, his Talkie film was Jeevan Naatak-35 and till Krorepati 1961. He did 29 films as a cinematographer only. This was the only film that he directed in his life.

The heroine of Diwani was Mumtaz Shanti who did 20 films from Basant-42 to jawani ki hawa-52,before migrating to Pakistan with her husband.Her best film was Kismet-1943.

The Hero of Diwani was Wasti, Riyasat ali Wasti was born in Nagaon-UP in 1912. His father was a respected person ,being City magistrate and then Dewan with raja of Bundelkhand. After graduating from Ambala,wasti joine Punjab Government PWD and served for 7 years. Then he went to Lahore and di his first film ‘ Prem yatra’-37,as a Hero. His Heroine was Umrao Zia Begum,who later married composer Ghulam Haider. The very next year Wasti came to Bombay and did baghbaan,industrial india,Rikshawala,Thokar,Qaidi and Nartaki in calcutta,Kudmai(Punjabi- it was a remake of the hit Marathi film ‘ lagna pahave karun’. Later in 1954 Hindi film Baaraati was remade on the same story),Awaz,nayi duniya,namaste,jeewan,pehle Aap,Ek din ka Sultan, Meghdoot and other some 35 films till 1976. he also produced 2 films.

His last days were spent miserably,in penury and anonymity. he was even seen begging opposite Eros theatre in Bombay. He died in 1996,unseen,unsung and unheard.

Here is a song from the film Diwani-47, sung by Gyan Dutt and Sunanda Kamath( no information whatsoever about this singer)-both making their Debut on this Blog as Singers..

(I am thankful to shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji for information used herein and his article on Wasti in his Gujarati book ” Inhe na Bhulana” )

Mythological films have been an important part of Indian films since long and this was evident from the fact that there was hardly any production house that did not make a Mythological film. The period of 1940 to 1965 can be called an age of meaningful religious films. In this too, the 1950 to 1960 period was the peak period for this genre. Later on the production of such films dwindled and these days, of course, one has to make efforts to find such a film, with a large magnifying glass !

Today’s song is from film Maldaar-1951. It was an obscure film which no one remembers now. The songs of this film were composed by a young Satish Bhatia. Songs were quite good. Unfortunately, 1951 was a period when the HFM was in its Golden period and Ek se badhkar Ek melodious songs were offered to the people by well known composers.

Film industry is one industry where men and women have to work together. Whether it is Actor-director or Singer-Composer, for the sake of work they have to spend much time together. No wonder then that Cupid does his work overtime. Sometimes there are mutual attraction and at times there are one sided fires burning. In most cases the one sided fire is extinguished in a very painful way, like what P L Santoshi faced with actress Rehana or the slap Sanjiv Kumar got from actress Nutan.
