“Bholi”(1949) was directed by Ram Daryani for Murli Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Geeta Bali, Prem Adeeb, Shashikala, Jeewan, Gulab, Khatoon, Nazeera, Sheela, Ishu, Gope, Nwab etc in it.

This by now forgotten “social” movie had ten songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Bholi”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam and Chandu Shivdasani. I C Kapoor is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Govindram.

Only audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song is picturised on the lead pair of the movie who would be Geeta Bali and Prem Adeeb for this movie.

With this song, singer Chandu Shivdasani makes his debut in the blog. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this unknown singer.

“Ek Kadam”(1947) was directed by Ramnik Desai for Sunrich Productions, Bombay. This “social”movie had Damyanti Sahni, Ansari, Raj Kachlu, Gayatri, Baburao etc in it. Neither the movie nor the actors ring any bells. That is how obscure this movie is.

With this song, “Ek Kadam”(1947) makes its debut in the blog. The lyricist and Music director too mark their debuts in the blog with this song.

Hullo Atuldom

Smita Patil (17th October 1955-13th December 1986) was an unusual actor much in the same template as Shabana Azmi if one may say so. She did justice to all the characters she was offered. One can distinctly remember her act in “Arth” as a person who was obsessed and insecure about her lover. Or her simply -being a prop-for-the-hero role in movies like Shakti, Namak Halal, Badle Ki Aag, Ghungroo etc. And we cannot forget her movies like Ardh Satya, Bazaar, Mirch Masala, Bhumika, Bhavani Bhavai, Umbartha (the last two movies mentioned were dubbed from Gujarati & Marathi respectively.) Umbartha was Subah in Hindi.

Smita Patil’s career spanned from 1974- 1989. Around 10-15 of her movies were completed and released after her death.
Remembering Smita Patil on her anniversary today with this song by Lata Mangeshkar from Subah (Umbartha 1982). The lyricist for this song is Narendra Sharma & music is by Hridayanath Mangeshkar.

For this movie Smita won the Marathi Rajya Chitrapat Puraskar for Best Actress.

This is a brief synopsis of the movie taken from Wikipedia. (I am resorting to it as I don’t want to go wrong about a movie I saw many years back)

Umbartha (translation: Threshold) is a 1982 Marathi film produced by D. V. Rao and directed and co-produced by Dr. Jabbar Patel. The film is a story of a woman’s dream to step outside the four walls of her home and bring change in the society. Smita Patil played the lead protagonist in the film for which she won. The film was adjudged as the Best Feature Film in Marathi at the 29th National Film Awards for “a sincere cinematic statement on the theme of a woman seeking to establish her identity by pursuing a career, even at the risk of alienation from her family”. The film is based on a Marathi novel “Beghar” (translation: Homeless) by Shanta Nisal and was also simultaneously made in Hindi as Subah with the same cast.

Sulabha Mahajan (played by Smita Patil) is a woman who dreams to step out of the four walls of the house, assume greater responsibility as a citizen and play an important role in shaping the society. She has passion to do something constructive for the abused, assaulted, neglected and traumatized womenfolk of the society she lives in. She gets a job offer as Superintendent of a Women’s Reformatory Home in a remote town of Sangamwadi. The job offer raises objections from her lawyer husband Subhash (played by Girish Karnad) and conservative mother-in-law who refuse to understand her need to move to the town and work for rehabilitation of the women. But her sister-in-law supports her by offering help in looking after her young daughter Rani. Determined Sulabha then goes ahead with her dream job.

She meets various challenges in her new endeavor. She starts with bringing discipline in the Home and also discovers frauds that take place there. But she is not helped by the managing committee which is filled with selfish and careless people. She hence decides to take steps against their sanction. She starts some classes to educate willing women and also marries off one of the inmates in order to give a new start to her life. She discovers how a local MLA Bane has been regularly using the inmates of the home to satisfy his sexual needs. Two of the inmates decide to run away but are forcefully brought back to the home. They both commit suicide by burning themselves. Sulabha is then questioned by committee and newspapers for her improper control on the home. An administrative enquiry is set up against her. It is then that she decides to resign and give up all her work and return home.

When she returns to her home she is happily welcomed by her sister-in-law but not so much by her mother-in-law. She then comes to know that her husband Subhash has been involved with another woman in her absence. His betrayal changes her mind and she again sets off to follow her dream work.

The film had Girish Karnad playing her husband, Shrikant Moghe (brother in law) Ashalata Wabgaonkar as her sis-in-law, Daya Dongre and a whole lot of Marathi actors of that time (if I am not wrong Kusum Kulkarni played the mother-in-law). Remembering a highly talented Smita today (13 december 2017) on her anniversary.

After a long gap-a very long gap really-I am discussing a song from a Mythological film- Ayodhyapati-56.

This song is sung by Hemant Kumar- who had actually specialised in singing such songs in the decade of 1950s. This decade was a Golden period for Religious films, because as many as 124 Religious, Mythological and devotional films were released in the decade from 1950 to 1959. This worked out to an average of one such film released in every month for 120 months, that is 10 years, continuously. Some of the best Bhajans of Hemant Kumar are from this decade only.

Among Mythological stories, Ram katha has always been the most popular, having a slight edge over Lord Krishna’s stories. No wonder that so many films were made, from the silent era till the 1970s on this topic. After 1970s, the baton of religious films/ stories was passed on to Television and no mythological films, barring some exceptions, have been made during the last 30-40 years.

Film Ayodhyapati was slightly different from the normal movies of this genre, viz Ramkatha. The story content of this film was based on a little known but interesting chapter of Ramayana. It was related to an episode before Rama’s birth.

The central theme of the film ( and it occupied a major portion of the film ) was focused on King Dashratha and queen Kaikeyi.

The name Kaikeyi, when uttered, brings hatred, anger and disgust to one’s mind, as she is branded as a ” Villain ” in Ramayana. If one reads the original version of Ramayana, written by the sage Valmiki, one will find that the truth is entirely different. In film Ayodhyapati, the focus is on Kaikeyi- explaining how she got those two Boons, which changed the course of Ramayana, from king Dashrath.

When I went into details, I learnt so many new things. It seems, all was planned with a purpose. Lord Rama, being an incarnation of Bhagwan Vishnu, had a specific mission on this earth and Kaikeyi was made a vehicle to initiate this mission.

Rama accorded Kaikeyi full respect; he gave her his abode and released her from the cycle of births and deaths. Yet Rama’s devotees find it difficult to forgive her for banishing him to the forest. Tulasidas, however, says it was all a Cosmic Play to destroy the demons. But devotees argue that Rama could have gone to the forest anyway, to destroy the demons. Why drag Sita along? Yet a reading of Ramayana shows that all those who met Rama, Sita and Lakshmana were blessed and they attained life’s goal by seeing, meeting, serving, talking to Rama. Many lives were transformed by the vision of Rama with Sita and Lakshmana. Only one person was forever disgraced and disrespected, and that person was Kaikeyi.

No girl is named Kaikeyi lest she takes on her characteristics. This is the bhakti perspective as Kaikeyi is seen in negative light. A jnani would know that what Kaikeyi contributed to the Cosmic Drama. Hers was the greatest sacrifice as she embraced infamy forever. Rama acknowledges her sacrifice and gives her due respect when they all come to meet him in the forest and when he comes back to Ayodhya later.

Kaikeyi’s maid Manthara’s motives are clear as she wanted to serve the king’s mother. But Kaikeyi’s change of behaviour is strange. Kaikeyi was the daughter of King Ashwapati and the only sister of seven brothers. She was brave, daring, rode chariots, fought wars, was extremely beautiful, played instruments, sang and danced. King Dasaratha saw her on a hunting expedition in Kashmir and fell in love with her. Kaikeyi’s father extracted a promise that her son (his grandson) would ascend the throne. Dasaratha agreed as he had no son from any of his wives. But Kaikeyi did not bear a son and so Dasaratha married Sumitra.

It is only in old age that Dasaratha gets four sons due to a yagna ceremony and Rama is the beloved of all. Kaikeyi loves Rama more than her own son Bharata, so it was inconceivable that she would banish Rama to the forest for 14 years. Sages say all this was going according to a Cosmic Plan. Just as there are several grounds for God’s incarnation as Rama and the creation of Ravana, there are several reasons for Kaikeyi’s actions. Firstly, Dasaratha had promised the throne to Kaikeyi’s son and the promise had to be honoured as was the rule of the Raghu Dynasty- ‘Praan jaaye par vachan na jaaye’- ‘Our words must be honoured even at the cost of our life.’ Second, as a child, Rama told Kaikeyi that since he was the incarnation of Vishnu, he needed an excuse to destroy demons and save sages. He needed someone to banish Him for 14 years and chose Kaikeyi as she was the boldest of the queens. Thirdly, as a child, Kaikeyi had blackened the face of a sage in meditation and he cursed her that she too would get a similar black reputation.

Ramkatha exponent Morari Bapu, gives us a fourth reason. Kaikeyi’s guru Sage Ratna, an astrologer, predicted that she would marry the king of Ayodhya who would die due of grief for his sons. To save the Raghu Dynasty, Kaikeyi would have to ensure that for 14 years no one sat on the throne for that would lead to misfortune. Sage Ratna was father of Shravan Kumar’s grandparents. Shravan Kumar was later killed accidentally by King Dasaratha’s arrow. Shravan Kumar’s grandfather was Sage Dhoumya whose parents were Ratnavali and Sage Ratna. Sage Ratna was a royal priest of Nandigram ruled by King Ashwapati. Sage Ratna had warned her that life as a queen would be very testing and her husband would die of grief for his son. Guru Vasishtha knew of this and decided that grief for son could be death of a son so rather than one son and king dying it would be better that only the king dies. So grief of separation was introduced and Dasaratha was allowed to die. Vasishtha advised Kaikeyi to ask for her two boons — for Rama to be exiled for 14 years and throne for Bharata. He knew that Bharata would never sit on the throne as long as Rama was living. It was Vasishtha who advised Bharata to install Rama’s wooden slippers on the throne if Rama disagreed to return to Ayodhya. The whole drama was planned and the players merely acted.

Kaikeyi had been given two boons for her fighting skills. When Indra, king of gods, requested Dasaratha to fight demon Samhasura, Kaikeyi accompanied him. In the battle Dasaratha’s chariot wheel got loose and Kaikeyi put her little finger in the spoke. Soon she took the chariot to a safe place, changed the wheel, nursed the wounded king and again went in the battlefield and they won. Dasaratha promised her two boons which she laughed away. She had forgotten about these boons but not Vashishtha and Manthara. They advised her to use these boons, but the intentions were different.

Kaikeyi inherited obstinacy from her mother. Once when King Ashwapati and his queen were strolling he heard a pair of birds talking and laughed uncontrollably. Ashwapati, King of Kashmir, had the boon of understanding language of birds, insects and animals. The queen wanted to know what the bird had said but the king replied that according to the boon if he disclosed it he would die. The queen said she didn’t care whether he lived or died but he must tell her what the birds had said. The king banished her forever to her parental home. Kaikeyi was raised by maid Manthara who wanted Kaikeyi to enjoy the highest status.

Kaikeyi knew she would be abused, hated and disliked for all times to come but she agreed to be a part of God’s leela or play.(thanks to speaking tree.in for some information.)

Film Ayodhyapati-56 was produced by A.A.Nadiyadwala, under the banner of Pushpa Pictures. The film was directed by S. Fattelal. Sheikh Fattelal Yasin Mistri was born on 20-10-1897, at Kagal in Kolhapur state of Maharashtra. He was the son of a stone Mason.He took artistic education from Abalal Rehman in Kolhapur. At the age of 21 years, he co-founded Maharashtra Film Company in Kolhapur, with Baburao Painter. He worked as an alround technician, learning many aspects of film making, including cinematography to a perfection. He had a friend Vishnu Govind Damle here, who was with Fattelal till he died.

In 1929, Fattelal left Maharashtra Film Company, along with his friends, Damle, Shantaram, Dhaiber nd Sitaram Kulkarni, to establish Prabhat Film company. He was popularly known as ‘ Saheb Mama ‘. In Prabhat, Fattelal became head of the production department and built sets for all the major films of Prabhat. His sets were appreciated even in Hollywood in those days. He made a team with Damle and they first directed a silent film ” Maharathi Karna “. Their next venture was Talkie film ” Sant Tukaram”-36. This film won laurels all over India and also in the Venice film festival. He worked on film ” Gopal Krishna”-38, ” Sant Dyaneshwar”-40 and ” Sant Sakhu”-42. After Damle died in July 1945, Fattelal directed film ” Jagadguru Shankaracharys”-55 and his last film as a Director was ” Ayodhyapati”-56. Then he retired.
Fattelal died on 24-1-1964 at Bombay.

Fattelal had married actress Gulab bai alias Kamla Devi.She was an actress in Maharashtra film company and later on in Prabhat film company. Most of our readers must have seen the famous Logo of Prabhat Films. It shows a bent lady, blowing ” Tutari “. The lady was Gulab bai, on whom this logo was filmed…by Fattelal himself.

Film Ayodhyapati-56 had 11 songs. One song is already discussed here. Today’s song is the second song.Unfortunately, barring these two, no other song is presently available on You Tube or anywhere on Internet. There is a 3 part very melodious song in this film, which depicts the preparation for young Rama’s proposed coronation, which never took place then.

The cast of the film was Usha Kiran ( Kaikeyi), Abhi Bhattacharya (King Dashrath), Rajkumar-khatri ( Rama), Ratnamala (Seeta), Dar Kashmiri alias Jeevan (Narad) etc etc. We also find a name ‘ Baby Asha Parikh’- who was to debut as a Heroine within 3 years from then on. Today’s song by Hemant kumar is played in the background when lord Rama leaves Ayodhya for the banishment to Jungles for 14 years……..


Song-Chhod chaley aaj hamaare Raam Ayodhya chhod chaley (Ayodhyapati)(1956) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

chhod chale ae ae

chhod chale ae
aaj hamaare raam ayodhya chhod chaley
vanvaasi ban raj dulaare sabse naata tod chaley
mukh mod chaley ae
aaj hamaare raam ayodhya chhod chaley

chala raam ka sewak ban kar laxman jaisa bhai
chali jaanki ban kar apne preetam ki parchhaai
nar naari pashu panchhi sabka manyak(?) naata tod chaley
mukh mod chaley ae
aaj hamaare ram ayodhya chhod chaley

jaise bachhde chhin jaane par dekha karti gaiyya
jaise bachhde chhin jaane par dekha karti gaiyya
waise hi ro ro kar dekhen ram lakhan ko maiya
maaya mamta mahal moh in sabse naata tod chaley
mukh mod chaley ae
aaj hamare raam ayodhya chhod chaley

Laxman bina mahal hai soona
seeta bina rasoi
raam bina hai sooni ayodhya
saari parja royi
chhod ke kaliyon ki galiyaan kaanton se nata jod chaley
mukh mod chaley ae
aaj hamaare
raam ayodhya chhod chaley
aaj hamaare
raam ayodhya chhod chaley

Hullo Atuldom

“Asli Naqli” that was released in 1986 was directed by Sudarshan Nag. It had a star cast of Shatrughan Sinha- Anita Raaj- Raadhika- Rajnikanth- Amrish Puri- Shakti Kapoor -Ashok Kumar. It had a normal storyline wherein as boy is separated from his wealthy parents in childhood. His parents have only one clue of him- a locket that he is wearing. Upon his father’s death the mother embarks on a mission to trace out her long-lost son with the help of (typically named) Durjan Singh (Amrish Puri). Durjan Singh and his son Shakti Singh (Shakti Kapoor) plant Birju ustaad (Rajnikanth) as the son with the sole motive of plundering the wealthy widow. Then Shatrughan Sinha steps-in and the plot spices up. Further the ladies are there for the song and dance routines. Essentially what this movie had was two superstars with stylised acting and the public had a paisa-vasool feeling. It had a decent run at the box-office.

Today (12 december 2017) this movie makes it debut on the blog on the occasion of Rajnikanth’s birthday. Rajnikanth- on whom various jokes are directed day in and day out. One example: the recent cyclone was because he sneezed. Rajnikanth- whose rise to superstardom is fairy-tale-like. Rajnikanth – the humble giant of the South Indian film industry -he works largely in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada movies but his movies are usually dubbed into other languages too. He has acted in about 20-25 Hindi movies too with Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Rekha, Shabana Azmi, Zeenat Aman etc as his co-actors. He has the next generation of heroines- Aishwarya Rai, Sonakshi etc- too ready to do miniscule roles just for the pleasure of being in a Rajni film.

The songs of the movie were written by S.H. Bihari- Shamsul Huda Bihari. He was the writer of such classics as “bahut shukriya badi meherbani”; “hai duniya usiki zamaana usika”; “raaton ko chori chori”; “meri jaan tum sadke ehsaan itna kardo” and lots more.
The music director for “Asli Naqli” was Laxmikant- Pyarelal. Today’s song has the voices of Shabbir Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal with (surprise! Surprise!) Laxmikant Kudalkar meaning Laxmikant the music director himself. It is a party song where both the heroes are trying to prove the other as the imposter with Anita Raaj trying to drill sense into them. Seema Deo, Amrish Puri and Shakti Kapoor don’t seem amused by the proceedings.

With this song we also wish the other superstar whose birthday was on the 9th – Shatrughan Sinha. (sorry to have missed it.)
Happy Birthday Thalaiva a.k.a Rajnikanth.

“Bela” (1947) was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The story, screenplay, dialogues and Lyrics of this movie were by D N Madhok. The movie had P Jairaj, Nigar Sultana, Shrinath Tripathi, Pt.Iqbal, Krisnakumari, Master Mehmood, Rekha, Usha, B.R.Sharma etc. in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from the movie. This song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Zohrabai Ambalewaali sang most female playback songs in the movie, my guess is that she sang for the leading lady and so this song is picturised on the leading lady viz Nigar Sultana.


Song-Pardesi piya re ho ab mose na guzre rain(Bela)(1947) Singer-Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

pardesi piya re
ho ab mose na guzre rain
pardesi piya re
ho ab mose na guzre rain
jiya bada bechain
ho ab mose na guzre rain
jiya bada bechain
ho ab mose na guzre rain

sardi guzaar li garmi guzaar li
beete naa saawan ki raat
sardi guzaar li garmi guzaar li
beete naa saawan ki raat
wo kaali kaali badli mohe chhed gayi
wo kaali kaali badli mohe chhed gayi
kaa se kahoon jee ki baat
more barsan laage donon nain
more barsan laage donon nain
pardesi piya re
ho ab mose na guzre rain

thhandi hawa bhi hai ae
barsaat ka maza bhi hai
thhandi hawa bhi hai ae
barsaat ka maza bhi hai
aur bijli bhi chamke hai kahin kahin
aur bijli bhi chamke hai kahin kahin
par mere dukh bhare dil se poochhe koi
par mere dukh bhare dil se poochhe koi
tu nahin to kuchh bhi nahin een
mere bas mein ho chura loon tora chain
mere bas mein ho chura loon tora chain
pardesi piya re
ho ab mose na guzre rain

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 58 # Remembering Singer-Poet – Kavi Pradeep #
———————————————–—————————————————-

Today (11th December, 2017 is the nineteenth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.02.1915 – 11.12.1998) of Ramchandra Narayanji Dwivedi whom we fondly remember and whose name has been engraved in the history of Indian Cinema and Poetry as Kavi Pradeep.

On this occasion here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa-1975” which is penned by Kavi Pradeep (he has written all the six songs for this movie) and also lent his voice to the background version of this (today’s) song in the movie.

“Jai Santoshi Maa” was produced by Satram Rohra for ‘Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay’ and directed by Vijay Sharma.
It had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Rajnibala, Bela Bose, Asha Potdar, Leela Mishra, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Neelam, Padmarani, Lata Arora, Johny Whisky, Surendra Mishra, Dilip Dutt, Uma Dutt, Tiwari, Dubey Trilok Kapoor, Anand Marathe, Shri Bhagwan, Mahipal, and Anita Guha as ‘Santoshi Maa’.

Bharat Bhushan makes an ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

The seventies was a very special decade for Hindi movies. It saw the emergence of the first superstar of the industry and later on the rise of an angry young man on screen. Action films, formula films, multi starrer movies came to the fore in this decade. Story presentation and action underwent changes from the earlier decades. Towards the end of the decade, we found disco music entering in Hindi film music in a big way.

This decade also saw one of the greatest mythological hit of all times viz. ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ in 1975.

Released in the same year as Sholay, this was a low budget movie but later on created records for collection. I have blurred memories about tales that many women started ‘santoshi maata vrat’ after watching this movie.

All the songs of this movie were very popular. Today’s song in particular holds a special nostalgic value for me.

I was just above 7 years old at that time. I remember that we watched both Sholay and Jai Santoshi Maa on the same day at Akola. I remember the name of the theatres. ‘Shalini’ talkies, which had that typical theatre like built inside and ‘Manek’ talkies – one of the old in the city and still maintained well and spacious.

Today when I checked the release dates of both these movies, I find that “Jai Santoshi Maa” was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975 and “Sholay” was passed by Censor Board on 12.08.1975).

The song being presented today has two versions. One version is sung by Kavi Pradeep and the other by Mahendra Kapoor with chorus in both of them. music is given by C. Arjun and lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep ji.

This song, oozing with devotion and spirituality has a calming effect on me and it puts me at peace. No wonder that this is a song that I like to listen to again and again.

(Note: – In HFGK Vol-V this song is mentioned as appearing at number two and six, which normally should be in the order of appearing of the songs in the movie. However, I would like to mention here that this needs to be corrected in HFGK as in the movie this song appears at number one and two respectively in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Kavi Pradeep.

HFGK mentions the song ‘main to aarti utaaroon re’ at number one while in the movie it comes at number number five. And, at number six is the last song of the movie ‘madad karo he… madad karo santoshi maata’).

Let us now listen to this wonderful song …
