Today’s song is from film Sati Toral-47. This film was made by Laxmi Productions, Bombay and was directed by Nandlal Jaswantlal. The music was provided by a team of Hari Prasanna Das and Manna Dey. The song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki and Manna Dey. The lyrics were by Miss Kamal, B.A. This was a pseudonym of Kavi Pradeep. At that time, he was under contract with Bombay Talkies and could not use his real name . Under this Pen name, he wrote lyrics for four films, namely Kadambari-44, Amrapali-45, Sati Toral-47 and Veerangana-47. Incidentally, all these films were directed by Nandlal Jaswantlal.

Nandlal was born on 15-3-1907 at Bardoli in Surat. His father was Administrative Officer in Kohinoor films. He started his career by joining it in 1924. He assisted Chandulal Shah(1926-29) and also directed silent and Talkie films for Ranjit from 1929 to 1933. Nandlal left the job and went to Europe on tour. On his return he joined Imperial company(34-36) and directed some remakes of silent films of Sulochana into Talkie films. For one year-1937- he went to Madras and ran a Laboratory also.

His first Talkie film as a Director was Pardesi Preetam-33 and last was Akeli mat jaiyo-63. Both were Ranjit films. Due to his death in 1961, Akeli mat Jaiyo was delayed and completed by Chandulal Shah himself. Nandlal directed, in all, 24 films-5 Silent and 19 Talkie films. Some of his well known films were Indira M.A.-34, Bambai ki billi-36, Sati Toral-47, Sanam-51, Anarkali-53 and Nagin-56. (adapted from indiancine.ma)

Music Director Hari Prasanna Das or H.P.Das was born in Chitgaon, East Bengal, in 1905. He was a Bengali. He was assistant to Pankaj Malik in films Dushman and Kapal Kundala-1939. He gave music to Bangla film ‘ Nimai Sanyasi’-40, in which he gave singing opportunity to 20 year old young Hemant Kumar. His first Hindi film as a MD was New India Films’ Blood Feud (or Josh-E-Inteqam)- 1935. His other films were Mohabbat-43, Meena-44, Kadambari-44, Mazdoor-45, Begum-45, Insaaf-46, Veerangana-47, Sati Toral-47 and Hum bhi insaan hai-48. He died on 26-9-1989.

The cast of the film was Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Sankata Prasad, Jeevan, Badri prashad, Rehana and others. Sankata Prasad was the elder brother of more famous character actor Kanhaiyalal, who entered film line first as a Lyricist only. Born in Banares in 1903, Sankata came to Bombay and joined Sagar Film company in 1929. From the beginning, he was a fixture in almost every silent and Talkie film of Sagar Film company, Sagar Movietone, National Studios and lastly Amar pictures. After the last connection, he became a free lancer. To be noted is a fact that Sankata Prasad is the only actor who worked in all 3 First Talkie films of Sagar Movietone, namely Veer Abhimanyu, Romantic Prince and Abul Hasan. His last film was Do Mastane-58. He acted in 65 films,in all.

Film Sati Toral -47 was based on a Folk Tale of Gujarat. Folk Tales are stories passed through generations by telling. They are built around Fairy Tales, Tall tales, Trick tales, Myths and Legends. The base of Folk tales is a true historical event , person or a story. Folk tales of loving couples have been very popular and have been subjects on which films in almost every language are made. Stories of Heer Ranjha, Mirza Sahiban,Sassi Punnu, Sohni Mahiwal, Momal Rano, Dhola Maru,Prithviraj Sanyogita, Bajirao mastani, Laila Majnu, Salim Anarkali, Shahjehan Mumtaz Mahal etc. are famous folk tales of lovers and films are made on them.

Similarly, Mythology and religious books provide plenty of scope for Folk tales. Several films are made in several languages on the folk tales of Satis in Hindu religion. Actually, 44 Talkie films are made, whose Titles contain the word ‘Sati’. The more popular Folk tales are on Sati Anusuya, Parvati, Ahilya, Anjani, Madalasa, Narmada, Mahananda, Pingala, Renuka, Savitri, Seeta, Sulochana, Toral, Vaishalini, Vijaya and Vimala to quote a few. Maximum 7 films are made on Sati Anusuya. As if only Sati is not enough, there are films like Mahasati Anusuya, Behula,Madalasa,Maina Sundari, Savitri, Tulsi and Tulsi Vrinda. You really must appreciate the creativity of Hindi film makers.

Like lovers and Religious persons, there are folk tales of Historical persons too, Like Rana Pratap ( and his Horse Chetak), Akbar, Shivaji, Amar singh Rathod, Razia Sultan, Chandbibi, Jhansi ki Rani, Birbal and Tenali Raman. Films have been made on most of these too.

Coming back to Film Sati Toral-47, I have not seen this film in Hindi or Gujarati, So, I was looking for the story of Toral. I found one on Wiki. There is a slightly different ( in details) story written by Amrit Ganger ji, the famous author in English and Gujarati on cinema and history. He has won the Gujarat Sahitya Academy Award too. This story is available on tellmeyourstory.in, for those who are interested.( I am happy to note here that I know Mr. Gangar and he has gifted me his latest book ” Walter Kaufmann in India 1934 – 1946″ ). So, here is the Sati Toral story from Wikipedia…

” Jesal, a young Kutchi Rajput, was a dreaded dacoit.
His brother’s wife once chided him that if he was truly brave, he should prove it by stealing Toral, an extraordinary mare belonging to a Saurashtra king. In the process of stealing Toral, Jesal’s hand got caught in a nail and his agonised cries brought the king running outside.

Asked what he wanted, Jesal said “Toral”, not knowing that the queen too had the same name. The king, a devout daani (donor) who had sworn never to disappoint anyone, gave him three Torals – his queen, the mare and a sword by that name. But on the boat journey back home, Jesal realised that Toral was not an ordinary woman.

He was tormented by guilt at having taken away someone who, out of loyalty, did not even question her husband’s decision. It is said that the enlightened company of Queen Toral, remembered in Gujarati literature as a devotional poet who composed and sang songs, transformed Jesal completely and the two began spreading the message of God.

Their inseparable companionship as teacher and disciple is talked about, but in cautious tones. No one, not even the local scholars, wants to discuss the Jesal-Toral alliance as a man-woman relationship. “Even the Gujarati film Jesal-Toral did not suggest any such angle,” recalls photographer Vinay Thacker, who started his career in 1976 by selling photos of the twin samadhis outside the shrine.

However, people do accept their unusual affinity, which even death couldn’t change. It is said that when Jesal undertook samadhi, he called out to Toral from his grave to join him. Toral, who was travelling, heard his voice, came back to Anjar and immediately took samadhi.
Toral, the mare, too was buried outside the temple. A green and magenta chaddar now covers the equestrian grave. The destroyed roof of the shrine has been temporarily replaced with an asbestos sheet. ”

Today’s song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki and Manna Dey, with Chorus. HFGK does not indicate names of singers for this song, but the voices are unmistakable. This song is in Amirbai’s song list. Prof. Yadav, in his book ” फिल्म संगीतकार – सुवर्णयुगवाले” also mentions these two names for this song. This is quite a good song. “Sati Toral”(1947) makes its debut in the blog with this song.

Two of the three “lyricists”, viz Soordas, Meerabai lived hundreds of years ago and their influence on Indian music scene can be seen from the fact that lots and lots of songs used in HFM and elsewhere were their creations.

Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Today’s song is the 5th song from the film Aahuti-50, to be discussed here. I have not seen this film, but from its second Title ” Anokhi Kurbani “, the movie seems to be about some kind of sacrifice. Whether it was for the country, family or just a Lover is not known. This was one of those films, made by a less known banner, directed by one whose name I read first time- Kulbhushan and the MD, who left no trace of him either of origin or the end- D.C.Dutt.

D C Dutt is its Music Director. His name is not known to many. All of us know that Lata Mangeshkar had to struggle very hard in her initial attempts of getting into Playback singing in Hindi films. In her early struggle, three Duttas helped her. The first was of course Datta Davjekar who gave her the first opportunity to sing a playback song for his film Aapki sewa mein-47. The second was K.Datta or Datta Korgaonkar, who, after his favourite singer Noorjehan left India, took Lata under his wings and gave her songs. The third Dutt was this-D C Dutt. No information is available about him whatsoever, except what is printed in HFGK and its duplication in Pankaj Raag’s book “Dhunon ki Yatra”. Thanks to this, we know that his debut was through film Sona Chandi-1946. Out of 12 songs of that film, only two were his and one of them was by Lata Mangeshkar. For rest, the composer was Tufail Faruqi.

This Lata song has a history. Film Sona Chandi was censored first on 19-7-46 and released. That time these 2 songs of D.C.Dutt were not there. In January 1948, when Gandhi ji’s death took place, many songs on Gandhi ji were recorded by many singers and composers. One of the most famous, popular and successful song was “Suno suno aye duniya walon, Bapuji ki amar kahani” sung by Mohd. Rafi in 4 parts and recorded by its composers Husnalal-Bhagatram. In this spate, D.C.Dutt also recorded a Gandhi ji song by Lata in 1948. Producers of film Sona Chandi got this and one more song ( by Saroj Borkar) included in the film and the film was re-censored on 9-4-48. Thus an early song of Lata was in a film, because of D.C.Dutt. Meanwhile the original Music Director of the film Sona Chandi-46 aka Bhai-Bhai, Tufail Faruqi ( brother in law of Ghulam Haider) had already migrated to Pakistan after the Partition.

D C Dutt later did some more films like, Sarai ke bahar-47, Dil ki Awaz-48, Anjana-48 ( he even acted in this film), Ram Darshan-50 ( he was one of the 6 Music Directors that the film had), Aahuti-50, Simba-51, Ranee-52 and lastly Sahil-59. Very surprisingly, after film Sona Chandi-46, Lata did not sing a single song in any of his films. After 48-49, Lata had become a very busy and ‘in demand’ singer and she would sing only for established composers ( we all know that she did not sing even in Madan Mohan’s debut film Aankhen-50, just because he was new).

The cast of the film, Aahuti-50 consists of Mumtaz Shanti, Ranjit Kumari ( who married actor Ramsingh and settled in UP), Sapru, Kesari, Bikram Kapoor, Struggling actress Shyama, Sudhir, Indubala and many others.

Mumtaz Shanti or Mumtaz Begum was born in 1922 at village Dinga in Punjab (now in Pakistan). She lost her parents early and she was brought up by her uncle who was a Police constable. After his transfer to Lahore, Mumtaz was able to continue her schooling. She learnt dancing and Music.She was also an expert in household chores. She was first rejected by Shorey Pictures,but then the famous writer/Lyricist Wali Saheb helped her and took her to Calcutta’s East India Film co. to work in a Punjabi film ‘Sohni Kumharan’-37. She also did another Punjabi film ‘Chambai ki Dali’-41 in Calcutta. Meanwhile,she was invited by Shorey pictures to Lahore to act in their Punjabi film ‘Mangti ‘-42. This film ran for 65 weeks giving her name and fame.

Barkat Nizami was the uncle of actress Mumtaz Shanti. It was through the efforts of Barkat Nizami that she was introduced to the Hindi film screen. This person had a knack for recruiting girls to cinema. First he brought in Mumtaz Shanti and then his own wife, Geeta Nizami. According to him this was a business, more than a marriage. He used to take 50% of earnings from Mumtaz Shanti, but after she married Wali Saheb, this stopped.

Rai Bahadur Chunilal Of Bombay Talkies offered her a role in their film Basant-42. She did Basant and Kismet-43. Both the films were hits and famous all over India. Mumtaz was good looking,tall and lithe,so looked attractive. After Kismet she became a freelancer and worked with many different studios, in Badalti Duniya and Sawal-43,Bharthari, Lady Doctor and Pagli Duniya-44,Chand chakori-45,Shravan Kumar, Dharati, Magadhraj and Pujari-46, Dekhojee and Doosri Shaadi-47,Padmini, Heer Ranjha and Ghar ki izzat-48,Putali, Biwi and Aahuti-50. Her last film in India was Zamane ki Hawa-52. In all she worked in 21 Hindi and 4 Punjabi films. She did 2 films in Calcutta, 4 in Lahore and the rest in Bombay.

She had married Lyricist/writer/Director Wali Saheb in 1947. He directed her in 3 films in India. He was very strict and forced her to come to studios only in Burqa. She was not allowed to talk to anyone. Manto has written some interesting incidents about her in his sketch of Ashok Kumar. According to him after marriage she used to come for shootings wearing ‘Burqa’. And Wali Saheb told the Producer/Director that no one should touch her. She was the second wife of Wali Saheb and she didn’t have any issue. Wali Saheb, however adopted a son for her ( who was a child of Wali Saheb’s brother, another famous lyricist, Nazim Panipati). This adopted son, Sikander Bin Wali lives in Washington D.C. Wali Saheb’s elder son from his first marriage, Zafar was Assistant Director of film Ghunghat-1962. They migrated to Pakistan after 1953. She retired from films and remained a housewife only. Walisaheb did 3-4 films,without much success. He died in 1977. Mumtaz Shanti also died in 93/94,unsung and unknown in Pakistan. ( information culled from articles provided by shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, Filmdom-46, Khwaja Irfan Anwar and my notes).

Many actors, Directors and few actresses came from Kashmir, to join Hindi films. In olden times, some prominent names were Jeevan, Chandra Mohan and Sapru, besides many others. Actresses were Shyama Zutshi and Yashodhara Katju in early times. Here is some information about D.K.Sapru, based on an edited article from Chinar Shade.com, and from shri M.N.Sardana ji with thanks…

“ Where from have you come ? You look like an European . Please sit . I need to talk to you .”

This is what V Shantaram had told the young boy in 1944 who had come all the way from Jalandhar to Prabhat Studios Poona . Shantaram , Babu Rao Pai and S. Fatehlal were the partners of Prabhat Studios present at that point of time.

Looking at his face and after the usual introduction ,V Shantaram signed the blue eyed handsome Daya kishen Sapru for a role in his next movie RAM SHASTRI.. The character of a Peshwa played by him was well noticed and the movie turned out a big hit.. He was signed as lead hero by the Company on a monthly salary of Rs3000/= highest ever paid to any hero during those days . It was a hefty sum that enabled him to live a princely life during those days .It was somewhere around 1945-46.

Films started pouring in later .He acted in Romeo and Juliet ( opposite Nargis . Nargis’s Mother Jaddan Bai was all praise for Sapru. The film was produced by Nargis’s brother Akhtar Hussain . ) ,Jhansi Ki Rani ,Kalapaani , Hum Hindustaani , Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam, Mujhe Jeene Do , Leader and Shaheed . Who does not remember his role as Majhale Sarkar ( Chaudhary ) in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam. Again as Zamindaar in Mujhe Jeene Do , he became quite popular. We saw him in some wonderful roles in Naya Daur , Prem Pujari ,Jewel Thief , Krodhi , Kudrat ,Dharm Veer, Dream Girl, Zanjeer , Pakeezah and many more such films .It was a period when story writers would create a character for him in the story or script. He was seen either as a Zamindaar or a Police commissioner or a Judge in most of his later films .

In Total, he must have acted in more than 350 films and out of which he played lead role in more than 50 films. He also played lead roles in some Gujarati and Punjabi films.

Saprus are Sarswat Brahmins from Kashmir known as kashmiri Pandits who belong to DIPAT SAMAN AUPAMANYAVA Gotra or the lineage of an Aryan Rishi .This clan of kashmiri Pandits actually belongs to village SAPREIN in present day Kulgam district of kashmir and could be safely called as aboriginal kashmiris . some other prominent Saprus are Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru , Jagdish Narayan Sapru ( Prominent Businessman of the country ) Sahaj Ram Sapru Revenue collector during the rule of Afghan Governor Azim Khan ( 1809-1819 ) and Dr Allama Iqbal Urdu poet and Islamic scholar ( He too belonged to a Sapru family from kulgam that had converted to Islam )

Daya kishen Sapru belonged to a well off family from Kashmir and his father was employed in Maharaja’s Treasury . That made the family to move to Jammu and Lahore during winters. Daya Krishen was born at Jammu and had his early education at Jammu and Lahore .Fluent in Punjabi , he was also proficient in Hindi , Urdu and English .From his childhood days , he would love music and singing . He could easily play on his Harmonium.

Before moving to PUNE , D K as he was known amongst his numerous friends lived at Jalandhar cantt for some time where he took up the job of a contractor .He had four brothers and two sisters and D K happened to be the fourth child in this joint family.

D K Sapru met Marathi actress and IPTA activist Hemvati and they fell in love. They married in 1948 .Hemvati was a noted Marathi actress who also worked at PRITHVI Theatres. She acted in SANGRAM with Ashok Kumar and Nalini Jaywant in lead roles. She had also worked with Dev Anand in MOHAN ,Mubarak and Renuka in Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani and Raj Kapoor in Jail Yatra . A play of Prithvi Theatres, named Deewar had Hemvati and Raj kapoor in lead roles and the play became quite popular on stage during those days.

After marriage , Hemvati played the role of a caring wife and an affectionate mother in her family. After marriage,She possibly acted only in one movie PATIT PAAVAN a home production of sapru family. Hemavati died on 10-4-2005.

Sapru children are also in films. To quote their elder daughter REEMA is a well known script writer while second daughter PREETI is a successful Punjabi actress while their son Tej is a noted film and TV actor. The brother and sisters are closely attached to each other. They too live by the family values that they inherited from their father .

D K Sapru also acquired good and working knowledge of Homeopathy and was seen reading Homeopathic books quite often during his spare time. He then started practicing this school of medicine and would treat everybody without any charge often Buying medicines and distributing them free.

Sapru also committed a folly of producing films . One can say that he was misguided by some selfish friends .Though he had learnt some lessons from his first home production Patit paavan , a movie that earned him a few thousands only yet he took up another production project ” Bahadur Shah Zaffar”’ and brought in a large star cast that included Sudesh Kumar , Chand Usmani ,Shyama , Rehman ,Jeevan, Ulhaas ( M N kaul ) and Nirupa Roy .He pooled in all his resources and raised loans for the project mortgaging his spacious new Bunglow .The movie did not sell on Box office. That landed the family in great trouble. The house had to be sold to repay debts .

Sapru turned diabetic during his later life. Inspite of his failing health he decided to make a last attempt to produce another film JEEVAN CHALNE KAA NAAM. By Now Reema was a trained screen play / script writer . She wrote the script and the family signed in Sanjeev Kumar , Rekha , Shashi Kapoor . DK fell ill suddenly and had to be hospitalized for about an year. The project was abandoned. D K was also operated upon for a malignant growth in his shoulder and finaly died of a heart attack at a young age of 63 years in 1979. His favourite child Reema was already married at that time . And by then he had also turned a grandfather.

It was big blow to the judiciary when Mr Daya Kishen Sapru departed for heavenly abode. There were other esteemed judges, who graced the self-righteous chair of the temple of justice but could not create a niche for them like Mr Sapru and Mr Murad, in Hindi films . It is to their credit ,that they both not only enhanced the prestige of judiciary ,but they were also apt in enacting all types of characters.

Mr D K Sapru,scion of an influential Pandit family of J & K and one of the most handsome actor of his time ,like other young men joined the film line to become hero. Fair complexioned with expressive light eyes like his senior actor & fellow Kashmiri Pandit Chandra Mohan ,soon he became a known actor. His cousin Mr Jeevan was already an established actor in Hindi Films .

In 1948, Jaddan Bai produced a movie which was based upon the tragic tale of Romeo And Juliet, written by William Shakespeare,in which the female leading role was played by her daughter Nargis, opposite Sapru Saab. In the same year he married Hemavati ,a Marathi actress ,who mostly had worked on stage of IPTA and Prithvi Theatres and also in few movies. Interestingly ,she was leading lady in 1947 movie Mohan ,in which the struggling actor Dev Anand was her hero. Hemvati & Sapru ,looked as if they were made for each other ,as both were good looking ,fair coloured and had similar light eyes.

There was a big advertisement in Film India and other papers ,when K Asif announced Mughal E Azam ,for which he took Sapru and Nargis as jilted lovers with Chandra Mohan in the title role of the Great Mughal. The movie could not progress , as firstly the financier migrated to Pakistan and in 49 , Chandra Mohan passed away . Mr Sapru became a full time character actor and his versatility came to the forefront , when he portrayed dissimilar character in different movies . Sapru Saab was man for all seasons ,and could portray saintly person/villain/cop/ foreigner/ villager / sophisticated person /King/ Sultan .all type of characters with ease.

He looked so charming person as rich Jeweller ,father of Tanuja in Jewel Thief and in Tere Mere Sapne, he was a humble villager. In Zanzeer ,he was a mafia lord and in Majboor (1964) ,he was prosecuting lawyer. He appeared in numerous mythological movies and in fact made Patit Pawan in 1955 ,which did average business.

As an actor, he was doing well, therefore one fails to appreciate the reasons as to why he thought of producing movies. He made Bahadur Shah Zafar ,in which he himself essayed the role of unfortunate last Mughal. He took Chand Usmani, Shyama, Jeevan, Sudesh Kumar , Ullhas etc in the movie. Unaware of the lack of honesty of his production team , Mr Sapru kept faith on them and could not monitor the expenses and the movie was over budgeted .He spend all his money and even mortgaged his unmoveable assets to make the movie spectacular and completed the movie. But sadly the movie could not be released and remained in cans . It was a big blow for him.

Today’s song is sung by Uma Devi and Shanti Varma, as per HFGK. However, as per one comment on You Tube by a known collector, she was Shanti Sharma, and not Varma.’Swaron ki Yatra’, by Anil Bhargav also credits this song to Shanti Sharma. I have not found any singer Shanti Varma, but Shanti Sharma’s name as a singer is found in films Raees-48, Kinara, Shaukeen, Dhoom Dham, Rimzim and Veer Ghatotkach-all of 49, and Azmaish-52 in HFGK.

With this song, the blog now has 3000 songs from the decade of 1940s (viz from years between 1941 to 1950).

Happy Dussehra Atulites

Today’s song is a modern version of the Ram- Raavan story. It is from the 2001 supernatural thriller “Aks” produced by Amitabh Bachchan and Jhamu Sughand. Director was Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The movie had a star cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, Nandita Das, Manoj Bajpai and Amol Palekar in a special appearance. The songs were written by Gulzar and Anu Malik was the music director. Today’s song is in the voices of Amitabh Bachchan, Nandita Das and Kavita Mundra.

I like the touches of modernism that Gulzar has written into the song:
Lanka- Bharat baant diya hai.
Communication systems have changed- the song mentions phone lines are obsolete and emails were in use. (2018 even emails are rare)
And finally- jab tak ram hai raavan rahega (a real mirror to the times we are in)

Jai Bolo Shree Ram Ki.
Jai Maa Durge. Jai Mata Di.
