CHANDAN KA PALNA (1967) was produced under the banner of Arzoo Films by Zaibunnisa Usman Ali and Khairunnisa Ismail Memon and was directed by Ismail Memon. Dhamendra and Meena Kumari were in lead roles supported by Mehmood, Mumtaz, Durga Khote, Dhumal, Nazir Hussain, Bipin Gupta, Shabnam, Mukri etc. In a way, the film was the home production of Mehmood. Producers Zaibunnisa Usman Ali was the wife of Mehmood’s younger brother Usman Ali while Khairunnisa Ismail Memon was his younger sister. The director of the film, Ismail Memon was his brother-in-law. Mehmood’s first wife Madhu was the sister of Meena Kumari.

The film was planned at a time when Meena Kumari started living in Mehmood’s bungalow for sometime after her separation from Kamaal Amrohi. Usman Ali, the younger brother of Mehmood who also worked as his secretary and production controller took the opportunity of the availability of Meena Kumari for the lead role. Since Dharmendra used to spent much of his spare time in Mehmood’s bungalow in view of his ‘special’ friendship with Meena Kumari at that time, he agreed to work for the film by adjusting his dates for his other films. [Source : the book Mehmood – A man of Many Moods by Hanif Zaveri, 2005].

I had seen the film in a ‘fast forward’ mode on a website. So I will give here only the gist of the story which is on the predictable lines. Ajit (Dharmendra) and Shobha (Meena Kumari), after their brief courtship, get married. However, after years of marriage, they do not have a child. A medical examination reveals that Shobha would not be able to conceive. Her mother-in-law (Durga Khote) is shattered by this news as she had promised to her late husband that his family’s name would be perpetuated. Knowing her mother-in-law’s craving for a grandchild and humiliation she may have to face on being barren, Shobha decides to end her life so that Ajit could remarry to fulfill his mother’s wish. However, she is saved by a temple priest who gives her alternative options.

Overnight Shobha’s personality changes from a traditional wife to a fun loving woman with liberal outlook, drinking etc which is resented by her mother-in-law. Both of them almost come in to a physical fight at which moment, Ajit expels Shobha from the house. She shifts to her father’s house who is also perplexed by her changed behaviour and scolds her. She even signs the divorce papers without any hesitation. The fact is that Shobha does all these drama just to force Ajit to separate from her and remarry. Ultimately, Ajit is pressurised by her mother to get married to a new bride (Shabnam). Soon the new bride is expecting and the mother-in-law is very happy. However, after delivering a baby boy, the new wife dies. Now the time is ripe for the temple priest to reveal Ajit and his mother about Shobha’s sacrifice to make the family happy. Mother-in-law and Ajit repent and Shobha is welcomed back in the house. She is united with Ajit and his family and takes care of the child as her own.

From this story, one can make out that the roles of Mehmood as a Bengali classical music lover , Mumtaz as his love interest and Dhumal as his competitor in music are introduced mainly to give some respite to the audience from the heavy dose of melodramatic scenes in the movie. Despite the impressive star cast and good music, the film failed to do well at the box office.

The film had 7 songs of which 3 songs have been covered in the Blog. I am presenting the 4th song ‘o ganga maiya paar laga de mere’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song is written by Anand Bakshi which is set to music by R D Burman. It is said that R D Burman composed the tune while sitting at Outram Ghat on the banks of Ganga at the outskirt of Calcutta (Kolkata). Coincidentally, when he returned to Bombay (Mumbai), Mehmood met him to say that he was looking for a song situation relating to river Ganga in the film. So he used the tune for this song.

This song is picturised on Meena Kumari on three different occasions in the film and different versions of the song get played on these occasions. The first one has two stanzas while the second and third have one stanza each of different verses. While the video links of the first and third versions are available, video link of second version is not available though in the movie this version is available. The audio link has three stanzas but the first stanza of the video link is not included.

Raju Bhartan, in his article, Remembering RD in 1997 had revealed that this song in raag Jogiya was a strong contender for Sur Singar Samsad’s award for the best classical film song of the year 1967 along with Madan Mohan’s ‘maine rang li aaj chunariya’ in raag Pilu from ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’. However, Brijmohan who headed Sur Singar Samsad at that time, felt that awarding R D Burman would affect Sur Singar’s classical music reputation. The award for that year went to Madan Mohan. I can understand Brijmohan’s concern as at that time, R D Burman had created ripples in the Hindi film music with his new trendy westernised songs in ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966) which became very popular. But such songs were anathema for classical music lovers. However, after 25 years, R D Burman did receive Special Award from Sur Singar Samsad for his contribution to music.

Enjoy the classical raag based soulful title song.

If you live in a place like mine, you may think that the local administration cannot see public happy and they devise ways and means to put public to inconvenience on a regular basis. For instance, whenever I go to one of the important roads in my town (called Link road), I find some or the other construction work going on there all the time. And the work is carried out in such a manner that may put the public to the maximum inconvenience. And just when the people may have adapted themselves and begun to learn to live with that inconvenience, some new method of torture is devised by the imaginative administrators. :)

Though I am not very good in remembering dates (especially important dates, you know which ones :) ), I often get saved by someone or the other. I would almost forget the birthday of my wife but for the fact that we have a daughter who can never forget birthdays and who never fails to remind me of such dates.

resham sa ye roop salona
yauvan hai ya tapta sona
ye teri mohan si moorat
kar gayi mujhpe
haaye jaadu tona
kaisa jaadu tona
saari man ki ye maaya hai
arre tujh per devi kisi rog ki
badi vikat chhaaya hai

arre chal sanyaasi ee

tera kamandal meri gagariya
saath saath chhalkaayege ae
saath saath chhalkaayege
kyun ham jaayen mandar mein
paap hai tere andar mein

tab tu mera ho jaata hai
aur piya main teri ee

sapnon mein bharmaakar maanav
sachha sukh khota hai
arre raam naam japte rehne se
kasht door hota hai

kyun ham jaaye mandar mein
paap hai tere andar mein
chhod jhamele baith akele

man se man ka deep jala le ae
madhur milan ki jyot jaga le
pooran kar le teri aasha
aj mujhe apna le ae

mera roop aur teri jawaani
milkar jyot jalaayenge ae
milkar jyot jalaayenge ae
kyun ham jaayen mandar mein
paap hai tere andar mein
dharam chhod kar
dhyaan chhod kar
paap nahin apnaayenge

arre chal sanyasi ee

prem jagat hai
prem hi jeevan
mat kar tu apmaan prem ka
prem hai naam prabhu ka
bada hi paavan
prem prem kar ke mujhko
kar degi ab tu paagal
mera dheeraj dol raha hai
laaj rakhe ganga jal

bol siyaawar raamchandra ki jai
