MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….9
————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1957 film ‘Ek Jhalak’.

1957 – what a year it was! The best year in the Golden Era! The best year in the 50s! The best year for melody and music! Such wonderful films came in this year!!! The lineup of 1957 films looks like the selection of the creamy layer in everlasting music – ‘Mother India’, ‘Pyasa’, ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’, ‘Bhabhi’, ‘Asha’, ‘Miss Mary’, ‘Naya Daur’, ‘Do Aankhen Baarah Haath’, ‘Paying Guest’, ‘Nau Do Gyarah’, ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’. ‘Nausherwaan e Adil, ‘Gateway Of India’, ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke, ‘Kathputali’, ‘Sharada’ . . . Films produced in Madras were quite popular. AVM’s ‘Bhabhi’, ‘Miss Mary’ and ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke’, Prasad Production’s first Hindi film ‘Sharda’, and MV Raman’s film ‘Asha’ played havoc with their captive audiences. Films from south somehow have always concocted a success formula, mixing comedy, tragedy, social message, excellent production values and above all superb music, which made their films very popular everywhere.

Satyen Bose’s ‘Bandi’ brought together all the three Ganguly brothers in one film for the first time. Later he would repeat this feat in ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’ in 1958. ‘Musaafir’, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s first Hindi film as a director, was an experimental film depicting the phases of life – birth, life, death and rejuvenation, symbolically through a succession of tenants in a house on rent. Director Amiya Chakravarty’s competetion with Gyan Mukherjee came to an end with his unexpected demise while the making of ‘Kathputali’ was in progress. The film was completed by Nitin Bose. (Later, Gyan Mukherjee also passed away while making ‘Sitaron Se Aagey’ (1958) which was later completed by Satyen Bose. Both films had same story and same heroine).

With the musical blockbuster ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ from Filmistan, Nasir Hussain introduced his own success formula of entertaining films and minted crores by repeating it several times, in a new garb. This film changed Shammi Kapoor’s luck, and made him an A grade actor.  However, it did not much benefit the heroine Ameeta. She remained where she was – a second grade actress. Filmistan also released ‘Paying Guest’, with chocolate hero Dev Anand, with superb music and songs composed by SD Burman. Dev also featured in ‘Nau Do Gyarah’, another musical entertainer from Navketan, his home production company.

A surprise hit that year was the socio-religious film ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’. The song “Zara Saamne To Aa O Chhaliye” became the unexpected top song of the year and an iconic one at that! ‘Apradhi Kaun’ was genuinely an excellent detective story. Amiya Chakravarty’s ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’ was a hit due to its superb music, though its cast was quite ordinary. ‘Do Aankhen Baarah Haath’ got the national award. Amiya Chakravarty and Gope passed away in this year. Nimmi got married. Vividh Bharati started its broadcast on 3rd October 1957.

Film ‘Ek Jhalak’ (partly in colour) was produced by Deep and Pradeep Productions and directed by Kalidas, the elder brother of Pradeep Kumar, its hero.  In this production company, Pradeep Kumar was a partner, only on paper, with Deep Khosla. Very soon the partnership broke. Deep Khosla went ahead with a modified name for the company – Deep Productions and made ‘Batwaara’ (1961). And Pradeep Kumar set up PK Films and made ‘Mitti Mein Sona’ (1960).

In Hindi films, there have been three actors who were very handsome and very lucky but zero in acting – Karan Dewan, Pradeep Kumar and Bharat Bhushan. They all appeared in leading roles opposite all leading actresses of their times. They had the best films, best songs and best roles. Karan Dewan had about 25 Silver Jubilees to his credit and was considered a lucky star. Bharat Bhushan had the most musical films to his credit like ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952), ‘Shabaab’ (1954) and ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954) etc. Pradeep Kumar had ‘Anarkali’ (1953) and ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963).

All three had their brothers producing films for them. Gemini Dewan made films for Karan Dewan, R Chandra made films for Bharat Bhushan and Kalidas for Pradeep Kumar. Unfortunately, in later years, all three lost everything and died in poverty and neglectful anonymity. Karan Dewan was a manager with BR Chopra’s production company. When he died no one came for his funeral except for Chandrashekhar and Manmohan Krishan from the Cine Artist’s Association. Bharat Bhushan worked as a watchman in a film studio, in his last days. Even he died unsung and only the men from the Association were present at the cremation.

Pradeep Kumar’s case is the saddest. He lay seriously ill in the ICU of a Calcutta nursing home, abandoned by his relatives. The hospital was not discharging unless the bills were paid. Luckily one Mr. Pradeep Kondaliya, an estate agent, recognised him, despite his grown beard. He paid the huge outstanding bill of the hospital and took Pradeep Kumar to his home, where he passed away after a few days. He was cremated by his fan. Such is the film industry – cruel and ruthless, where the recognition lasts only till one is successful.

The cast of actors of ‘Ek Jhalak’ includes Pradeep Kumar, Vijayantimala, Pran, Mubarak, Rajendra Kumar, Anita Guha etc. The producer Deep Khosla too did a role in the film. (Note: Deep had also acted in ‘Ek Shola’ (1958), ‘Police’ (1958) etc. He wrote the story and dialogues for ‘Ek Shola’). The music of ‘Ek Jhalak’ was by composed by Hemant Kumar, ably assisted by Ravi. There are nine songs in the film, four of which are already posted here. These are – the two versions of ‘Aa Ja Zaraa‘ (a blatant copy of the famous “Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White”), the fabulous Hemant–Asha duet “Ye Hansta Huaa Karwaan Zindagi Ka Na Poocho Chalaa Hai Kidhar”, and the Hemant Kumar solo, “Gori Chori Chori Jaana Buri Baat Hai‘. Today’s song is the 5th song of this film to be showcased here.

I have not seen this film since I never liked Pradeep Kumar. But I know the film revolves around a plot in which a girl Mala, elopes with her music teacher Shekhar whom her family does not like. On her parents’ request, Pradeep sets out to trace the girl. He catches the wrong girl, Shobha. By the time the entire story unfolds, Pradeep and Shobha are in love.

Today we will enjoy another very good song from this film, a duet of Hemant Kumar and Asha. I am sure you too will like it. . .

वहीं ले चलो तुम मोहब्बत जहां है
वहीं ले चलो तुम मोहब्बत जहां है
बहारें भी देखीं
नज़ारे भी देखे
जो दिल चाहता है वो सब कुछ यहाँ
बहारें भी देखीं

Today’s song is a lovely Meerabai bhajan, from the film ‘Toofan Aur Diya’ (1956), sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This song was very popular in those days and even today you will sway with its melody. The tune will linger with you for quite some time, I assure.

Bimal Roy, Satyajit Ray, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, V.Shantaram etc are some of the directors who enriched Hindi film industry with their offerings. They not only contributed significantly to the industry, but they also helped spread the fame of Indian movie industry beyond its shores.

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….5
————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1955 film ‘Faraar’.

We have already discussed the happenings in Hindi film industry in 1955, in the previous episode.  Name of this film had not featured anywhere, simply because it was neither a famous film nor a very successful film.  Its music too was nothing to write home about.  Even in such a film, we find a gem or a song special for other reasons.  I selected this film song for few reasons.

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….4
—————————————————-
Today’s song is from film Albeli-1955.

The year 1955 gave us some really meaningful and entertaining films. Raj Kapoor’s ‘Shri 420′ tried to bring in limelight, as usual, the hypocrisy of the elite society. It was a great film with a message, good direction and everlasting music by Shanker-Jaikishen, the three specialities of an RK film. From this film onwards, “Raju” became the favourite name of Raj Kapoor’s Heroes.( Like ‘Shanker’ was Shammi Kapoor’s lucky name in early films. Similarly ‘Vijay’ was the favourite film name of Amitabh Bachhan in 20 films, of Jeetendra in 18 films and of Mithun Chakrawarty in 16 films.).

Missing Gems from the Golden 50s….song No. 3
—————————————————-
Today’s song is from a film of 1954-Pehli Jhalak.

The year 1954 was a mixed treat for the film industry. The trend of movies on Detective or crime themes began this year,starting with Aar paar and Taxi Driver. Filmistan was the most successful production house with two superhit films having popular music from composer Hemant kumar. Naagin and Jaagriti were the films. Bimal Roy made three films- Naukari,Biraj bahu and Baap Beti ( based on Guy De Maupassant’s Simon’s Papa). H S Rawail made Mastana based on Chaplin’s The Kid.

Missing gems from 1950s-Song 2
———————————–

Today’s song is a Gem from the film Jhaanjhar-1953.

This was the first film produced by New Sai productions, a company floated by Chitalkar, Omprakash and his only brother Bakshi Ramprakash Chhibber (who took up the name ‘Pachhi’ later on and produced many films like Kanhaiya, Jaali Note, Naughty Boy, Mere Mehboob, Cha ch cha, Teesri Kasam, Around the world etc etc.). many people are under the misunderstanding that even Lata mangeshkar was a partner in this venture, But C.Ramchandra, in his autobiography mentions only these three names as partners. However, at the same time, C Ramchandra and Lata were partners in another company along with a man called P R Bhide, who cheated them later and also dragged both to courts. Lata and C Ramchandra came out of this without any harm, though.

In the month of January, I had visited Hyderabad-my home town after a gap of about 6 years and I was quite excited about meeting close relatives and school/college friends. I had been in touch with them from Mumbai. They contacted me when I reached Hyderabad and settled down. We decided to meet for Lunch at an appointed day at one of our favourite clubs-Fateh Maidan Club. It was going to be a reunion for 6 friends, including me. Everyone was excited about this meeting. On the appointed day I reached the club at about 12.30 pm. All my fiends-5 of them- were waiting for me. After embracing each other, they all sprang a surprise on me and there appeared my 6th friend, who was not in the pre decided list. He too was from our group, but had settled down in US. He had come to Hyderabad just the previous day and he was invited to meet me . We met after about 20 years and were extremely happy to revive nostalgic memories.
