Hullo Atuldom

26th Ocotober is a day when we wish the first Follower of the blog Rajaji on turning a year younger. He is the ‘yaaron-ka-yaar’ who is currently off the radar. Hope he marks his presence on the blog and reads this post. He is not a kanjoos (and I have a whole set of the followers of the blog who will endorse my statement) and will not shy away from giving us a treat by saying a “Hello”. Actually, I sincerely hope he is fine, the last post by him, as a guest contributor, was on 8th March 2021- for the birth centenary of his favourite lyricist/ poet Sahir Ludhianvi.

Our Rajaji was one of the first to see posts on Atulsongaday. One of the first to post his Farmaish to Atulji. And if I am not wrong, one of the first guest contributors as lyrics contributor in April 2009 with this post of a song from ‘Bin Baadal Barsaat’ . His first full-length post was Teri umar naadaan hai on 26 june 2010 from “Aankhon Aankhon Mein”(1972) and since then he has been a regular contributor and loves to write about Rajesh Khanna, Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar and of course Sahir Ludhianvi. In the interim he has also written posts on some artistes whose work he appreciates. Here is wishing this friendly Atulite all health and happiness and waiting for his next post- essay, novel or short story anything but in your unique style Rajaji.

26th October also happens to be the birth date of an actress (don’t like to use the adjective yesteryear for this one, too young for that) who was known to be cast in the roles of typical heroine i.e. one emotional scene, two haughty scenes, three or four duets or solos and that is about it. There is a period in every actress’s career when she reaches the top-spot doing this kind of inane roles. Then she tires of it and tries to break the shackles and get cast in some roles that gives her chance to show her emoting and acting capabilities.

Today’s birthday girl made her Bollywood debut as Salman Khan’s heroine in ‘Patthar Ke Phool’ went on to co-star with all the biggies of that era and reaching heights of popularity as the ‘mast mast’ girl in ‘Mohra’ She was ready to give it all up sometime in 1995 for the sake of family and marriage. But when things didn’t work out the way she expected them to, she made a successful comeback with movies opposite Govinda which were from the David Dhawan stable. She played meaningful or non-glamourous characters in movies like “Shool” (1999) “Daman” (2002) “Satta” (2005) and “Jaago” in 2004 where she played the mother of a ten-year-old gang-rape-victim who dies in front of her.
Do I need mention the name of the actress- Raveena Tandon? She finally took a hiatus from acting after marriage and kids (as per her original plan for life) and has four children two of whom she adopted when the girls were 11 and 8 and she herself was only 21.

I may not call myself her fan but I like this actress for her sprightly acting, Today’s song is from the 1997 crime -drama “Ghulam-e-Mustafa” which was directed by Partho Ghosh and had a cast headed by Nana Patekar and Raveena Tandon played a night club dancer who falls in love with Mustafa (Nana Patekar) on hearing his life story. They even get married and have a happy life, which is short lived as Kavitha (Raveena) gets killed in a car bomb explosion which was meant for Abba (Paresh Rawal). The cast also included Ravi Behl, Aruna Irani, Keerthi Chawla, Shivaji Satam, Sulabha Deshpande, Mohan Joshi, Mohnish Bahl etc. Rajesh Roshan and Amar Haldipur were the music directors, and the song with this post has been credited to Anand Bakshi. Myswar.com says that Amar Haldipur was responsible for the background score.

This songs sees our birthday girl Raveena Tandon as a new bride out for a joy trip when their Gypsy breaks down, of course I need not explain the visuals of the song and will just say that she dies after this.

I would also like to wish the daughter of an Atulite on her birthday today. Hope this message is conveyed to your little girl and wish her all the best for her future.
Once more wishing all the best and happy birthday to our Rajaji, the little one of our Atulite and Raveena Tandon.

Blog Day :

4848 Post No. : 16637 Movie Count :

Today’s song is from an absolutely obscure film called Vijay Laxmi-1943. The film’s song are not available on social media like YT etc, but I had 4 songs of this film and I found that this film is yet to make a Debut on our Blog.

If 100 films are made in one year, only about 10% of films are Hits or popular. About 10 to 20 % of films do an average business on Box office, but the rest number of films either flop or disappear from the theatres quickly. That means the majority of the films are not worth remembering. Why does this happen when so much money is poured into the films ? No one wants to waste his money on making a film.

Filmmaking is like playing on a Race Course. 100 people buy tickets and put their money on different horses. Only a few win. The rest lose their money, but then everybody can’t win. It is a matter of Luck, because there is no fixed formula for success. When a producer puts his money into making a film, he has all the hopes to earn profit by making the film a Hit. However, not every film can become a Hit. In Spite of this uncertainty in races, films and other such matters, people take chances again and again by changing their strategies.

Let us now take a look at what the Film scenario was in the year 1943….

1943 was a year in which the II world war was in full swing. Both sides were almost equal. The effects of the war on India were… it faced the infamous Bengal Famine, caused by the war profiteering. Controls on film production were tightened by the Government. I.P.T.A. became operative with its first staged p0lay ‘ Nibanna’. Film Kismet became one of the biggests Hits ever. V.Shantaram’s Rajkamal Kalamandir debuted with Shakuntala, as did Mehboob with his film Najma. Government made showing of Newsreel before any film mandatory. Film Raj Nartaki’s english version The Court Dancer was exhibited in the USA, first time for an Indian film.

1943 produced 105 Hindi films, the highest number during the war years, 1939 to 1945. Many landmark and musical films appeared in this year giving a respite to the war torn audience of Indian Cinema. Let us take a look at some of these films.

Film Bhaichara had music by the only other ” Sursagar” musician – Himangshu Dutt ( the more well known being the singer Jagmohan Sursagar).

C.Ramchandra had his first musical hit with the film Bhakta Raj, made by Jayant Desai productions.

Film Gauri from Ranjit became Monica Desai’s first Hindi film in Bombay. It was a very successful film with songs by Khemchand Prakash, based on Bangla Folk tunes.

Kanan Devi gave some sweet songs in the film Hospital, under Kamal Dasgupta’s baton.

Bombay Talkies film Hamari Baat was the last film in which Devika Rani acted. Anil Biswas was the composer.

Music Director Khurshid Anwar brought Gauhar Sultana from Lucknow to sing some songs in the film Ishara. Naushad'[s musical film Kanoon had some good Suraiya and Shyam duets.

Film Kashinath was Nitin Bose’s last film in New Theatres, after he developed differences with B.N.Sircar.

Anil Biswas gave his career best musical Hit film ” Kismet”- the longest running film from Bombay Talkies.

Nurjehan’s musical film Nadaan was popular with songs from composer K.Datta. Director Mehboob made his first film Najma, under his own banner Mehboob productions.

Yet one more musical from Naushad- film Namaste.

At last a musical hit for composer S.N.Tripathi- Panghat from prakash Pictures. Rajkumari Shukla sang her only Hindi song in this film;. (the film was remade as Chitchor-1976).

Film Paraya Dhan had music by Bengal’s famous musician Gyan Prakash Ghosh. Deena Pathak sang her only 2 songs in this film as Deena Sanghavi.

Ghulam Haider makes merry again with Shamshad hit songs in the film Poonji from Pancholi, Lahore.

One more superhit film – Ram Rajya from Prakash Pictures had very good songs from composer Shankar Rao Vyas. Saraswati Rane gave 2 melodious songs. Yashwant joshi and Yashwant Nikam sang the famous song ” Bharat ki ek Sannari ki katha”. Ram Rajya had also a distinction as the only Hindi film that was seen by Mahatma Gandhi, on 2-6-1944.
( before this Gandhi had seen ” Mission to Moscow-43′ an English film, in Wardha, according to The Hindu (Kathmandu Ed.) dt.8-2-2010). The film had early songs by Manna Dey also.

Naushad in full swing with his 3rd Musical Sanjog, where Suraiya gave playback to Mehtab, the Heroine.

Vasant Desai gave excellent songs in the hit film Shakuntala by V.Shantaram.

Hospital- excellent songs by kanan Devi.

Kanoon- another hit from Naushad.

Mera Khwab- MD Ghulam Mohammed’s Debut film

Najma- Mehboob khan’s first film, on Muslim society.

Nurse- Gyan Dutt gave an excellent song of Rajkumari-‘ Vo gaye nahin’

Prithvi Vallabh- A big budget costume drama made by Minerva, based on story of K.M.Munshi. It had songs by Minakshi Shirodkar.

Tansen- Saigal’s first film in Bombay. Khurshid matches him song by song.

Taqdeer- Nargis aka Baby Fatima debuted as an adult. However her name comes third in the credits, after Motilal and Chandramohan.

Besides these films, the following films were also made but their names are not even known to most people. These films just came and went into oblivion !
Andhera, Angoothi, Ashirwad, Bhalai, Chhed Chhad, Daawat, Duniya Deewani, Jangi jawan, Kurbani,Mohabbat, mauj, Pati pooja, prem sangeet, Rekha, Sahara, Salma, Sawaal, Tasweer, Vijay laxmi and Zameen etc etc. These are only sample names. I have not counted C grade and stunt or costume films, which were plenty in numbers.

Today’s film Vijay Laxmi was made by Indian Art Pictures and was directed by one G.S.Kashyap. I find that his name appears as a Director only for this film in the HFGK. Possibly he was a one film director like many in the war period ( who would provide finance also for the film to become a director ). The music was composed by G.M.Durrani, who was basically a singer but had a strong desire to also be a composer. While he sang 305 songs in 168 films, he also composed music in 8 films and acted in 16 films. He even wrote 1 song in film Nazare-1949.

The cast of the film was Shobhana Samarth, Motilal, Yashodhara katju, Gope, David, Meher Bano (actress Purnima, in adult life),Bhudo Advani, Leela Mishra and many others. In this film even Leela Mishra’s husband Ram Prasad Mishra had also done a small role and his name appears in the credits too.

Leela Mishra (1 January 1908 – 17 January 1988) was a Hindi film actress. She worked as a character actor in over 300 Hindi films for five decades, and is best remembered for playing stock characters such as aunts (Chachi or Mausi). She is best known for her role of “mausi” in the blockbuster Sholay (1975), Dil Se Mile Dil (1978), Baton Baton Mein (1979), Rajesh Khanna films such as Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein, Aanchal, Mehbooba, Amar Prem and Rajshri Productions hits such as Geet Gaata Chal (1975), Nadiya Ke Paar (1982) and Abodh (1984). Her career’s best performance was in Naani Maa in 1981, for which she received the Best Actress award at the age of 73.

Leela Mishra was married to Ram Prasad Mishra, who was a character artist, then working in silent films. She got married at the very young age of 12. By the time she was 17, she had two daughters. She hailed from Jais, Raebareli, and she and her husband were from zamindar (landowners) families.

Leela Mishra was discovered by a man called Mama Shinde, who was working for Dadasaheb Phalke’s Nasik Cinetone. He persuaded her husband to make her work in films. During those days there was a severe scarcity of women actors in films; this was evident in the paychecks that the Mishras received when they went to Nasik for the shooting. While Ram Prasad Mishra was hired on a salary of Rs. 150 per month, Leela Mishra was offered Rs. 500 per month. However, as they fared poorly in front of the camera, their contracts were cancelled.

The next opportunity that came their way was an offer to work in the movie Bhikarin, which was being produced by a company owned by the Maharaja of Kolhapur. However, Leela Mishra lost out on this opportunity too, as the role required her to put her arms round the actor (who was not her husband) while delivering a dialogue, which she point-blank refused to do.

Their next film was Gangavataran-37, directed by Dadasaheb Phalke. This was his only and the last Talkie film. In this film Leela did the role of Parvati. This became her first film.

She faced a similar problem while working in another film titled Honhaar. She was cast opposite Shahu Modak as a heroine, and was supposed to hug and embrace him, which she again refused steadfastly. Since the company was legally in a weak position, they couldn’t turn her out of the film, which proved to be a blessing in disguise for her. She was offered Modak’s mother’s role in the film and it clicked instantly. This opened the doors for her to play mother roles at the young age of 18.

Early on in her career she acted in notable films such as the musical hit Anmol Ghadi (1946), Raj Kapoor’s Awaara (1951) and Nargis-Balraj Sahni starrer Lajwanti (1958), which was nominated for the Palme d’Or for Best Film at 1959 Cannes Film Festival.

She acted in the first Bhojpuri film, Ganga Maiya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo (1962), which also starred Kumkum, Helen and Nasir Hussain.

Her roles varied from mothers, benign or evil aunts, to comic roles.

She acted in 344 films. Her last released film was Aatank-96. 8 films were released after her death. ( Thanks to wiki, Ateet ke sitare, muVyz, HFGK and my notes).

I have no idea about the film’s story or other details. The song was given to me by friend Abhay Jain (USA) and was uploaded by our Sadanand Kamath ji. Thanks to both.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part LVII: Year 2004
———————————————————————————————————

In this episode, the 56th episode, we were supposed to discuss Lata Mangeshkar songs that she sang in Hindi movies released in 2003, seeing that previous episode covered songs that she sang in 2002.

It turns out that Lata Mangeshkar did not sing any songs in movies released during 2003. So 2003 was the first year after 1945, when Lata Mangeshkar did not sing any songs in Hindi movies. So we needed to move on to the next year viz 2004. Even in that year, we were drawing a blank, till we reached the alphabet V. “Veer Zaara”(2004) turned out to be the only movie of 2004 where Lata Mangeshkar sang songs. She sang as many as 9 songs in this movie. 90 Hindi movies containing 632 songs were released uring 2004. So Lata Mangeshkar got to sing in 1.1 % of these movies and she sang 1.4 % of songs in these movies. So her era almost drew to a close after ruling the roost for more than six decades.

Here are the details of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 2004 :-

S N Movie Music director Lata song in the blog Lata HFM songs recorded in the year Lata solo songs Male duet Female duet Other songs Lyricists
1 Veer Zaara Madan Mohan 3 9 2 4 0 3 Javed Akhtar
Total 1 movie 1 MD 3 9 2 4 0 3 1 lyricist

Lata Mangeshkar worked with 1 music director and 1 lyricist in this one movie released in 2004. Madan Mohan had passed away in 1975, but his unused tunes, which his son had in his possession, were used for this movie, crediting Madan Mohan as the music director.

Laxmikant Pyarelal were the most prolific music directors with Lata, with 664 songs in HFM with Lata Mangeshkar by the end of 2002. Shankar Jaikishan with 457 songs in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar were in the second position. R D Burman with 332 Lata Mangeshkar and Kalyanji Anandji with 307 songs were next ahead of C Ramchandra with 275 songs. Other top music directors for Lata Mangeshkar were Chitragupta (239), Madan Mohan (204), S D Burman (179),Naushad (146), Roshan (144), Hemant Kumar (127), Anil Biswas (120), Bappi Lahiri (112), Rajesh Roshan (111), Salil Chaudhary (109), Husnlal Bhagatram (108), and Vasant Desai (104). Together these seventeen music directors composed 3742 songs out of 5234 songs that Lata Mangeshkar had sung in Hindi movies till end of 2004. Anand Bakshi with 731 songs was the top lyricist with Lata Mangeshkar. Other leading lyricists with Lata Mangeshkar were Rajinder Krishan (555), Majrooh Sultanpuri (407), Shailendra (361), Hasrat Jaipuri (301), Prem Dhawan (201), Bharat Vyas (193), Shakeel Badayuni (189), Sahir Ludhianvi (161) and Indeewar (156). These ten lyricists had penned 3252 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar till that time.

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 2004 :

The song, tum jo aao to pyaar aa jaaye zindagi mein bahaar aa jaaye was from a ‘B’ grade film, ‘Sakhi Robin’ (1962) sung by Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur. The song was written by a then struggling lyricist, Yogesh Gaud which was set to music by Robin Banerjee who was trying to establish himself as the music director in Hindi films but did not succeed. If this song was to appear in an ‘A’ grade film, probably this duet would have been sung by Mohammed Rafi or Mukesh with Lata Mangeshkar. Another popular song, na jaane kahaan tum thhe na jaane kahaan ham thhe from ‘Zindagi Aur Khwaab’ (1961) was sung by Manna Dey with Suman Kalyanpur set to music by Dattaram who was also trying his best to graduate from assistant to Shankar-Jaikishan to an independent music director since 1957.

Personally, I was very happy that these two romantic songs were sung by Manna Dey with Suman Kalyanpur as they broke the monotony of our ears getting flooded with the familiar voices of the topmost male and female playback singers of that time. These two songs became popular as they were regularly played on Vivid Bharati.

What made me to remember these two songs is the 8th Remembrance Day of Manna Dey today, October 24, 2021. It is Manna Dey’s bad luck that his singing versatilities could not be fully exploited by the music directors. He could not become the mainstream playback singer as his contemporary playback singers, Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and later Kishore Kumar were preferred by producers, directors and actors. Nonetheless, Manna Dey who commenced his playback singing career in Hindi films in 1942 continued to sing until 1990s – a period of 5 decades during which he sang close to 1375 songs in diverse genres in Hindi films and composed songs as a music director for 15 Hindi films.

Probodh Chandra Dey, known by his pet name, Manna Dey (01/05/1919 – 24/10/2013) had the initial training in music from his uncle, K C Dey. When K C Day decided to shift to Mumbai in the early 1942 on the invitation of Chimanlal Trivedi of Laxmi Productions, Manna Dey accompanied him to assist him both in his filmy career as a music director as well as to look after his uncle who was blind. It was K C Dey, who gave Manna Dey his debut song, a duet with Suraiya, jaago aayi usha panchhi bole jaago in ‘Tamanna’ (1942). Neither the songs nor the film created any ripple on the box office front. He also got opportunity to sing three songs in ‘Ram Rajya’ (1943) which was first offerred to K C Dey but declined the offer by saying that he sang only his self-composed songs.

While Manna Dey continued to assist K C Dey, he was entrusted to Ustad Aman Ali Khan of Bhendi Bazar Gharana by his uncle to get him trained as a vocalist in Hindustani classical music. He also took training in learning Urdu to improve his diction. In 1946, K C Dey returned to Kolkata after which Manna Dey assisted music directors Hari Prasanna Das, Khemchand Prakash and S D Burman. Somehow, he detested the work of music direction and instead concentrated on playback singing.

Manna Dey started his playback singing career at a time when Mukesh had started his career as a singer-actor in 1941 followed by Mohammed Rafi in 1944. It would be interesting to know as to how they fared in their initial play-back singing career in the 1940s. As I expected, Mohammed Rafi topped among them with around 325 songs, followed by Mukesh (around 160 songs). Manna Dey came a distant third with around 60 songs only. It was apparent that Manna Dey getting branded as a specialist in classical singing and singing for character actors in the genre of prayer or philosophical songs, had affected his playback singing output significantly.

In the 1950s also, Manna Dey was not yet in the reckoning as one of the main playback singers for the lead actors. The producers/distributors of the films preferred Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, and Talat Mehmood in that order. Manna Dey would get the chance to sing for the lead actors only if the song was based on a classical raagas. Even in other genres of songs, he got only limited opportunity to sing for the lead actors.

In one of his interviews, Manna Dey had revealed that sometime in 1954, he had contemplated to quit the Hindi film industry out of the frustration of not getting opportunity to sing for the lead actors and also in diverse genres. It was his wife, Sulochana Kumaran who encouraged him to give up the defeatist attitude and prove that he could sing any type of songs.

A major opportunity came to Manna Dey in the film ‘Shri 420’ (1954) when Mukesh after singing two songs for Raj Kapoor excused himself from singing more songs as he had signed a contract with the producer of ‘Maashooqa’ (1953) which prohibited him singing in other films until the release of the film. This gave opportunity for Manna Dey as he was chosen to sing for Raj Kapoor for 3 remaining songs. He also sang for Raj Kapoor in ‘Chori Chori’ (1956) and in ‘Parvarish’ (1958). All these songs became very popular. With these success, Shankar-Jaikishan got confidence to make Manna Dey sing 4 songs for Shammi Kapoor in ‘Ujjala’ (1959). But thereafter it was back to square one as in the 1960s, producers and actors preferred Mohammed Rafi and Mukesh over Manna Dey.

Probably, to prove his point that he could sing any genre of songs, in the 1960-70s, he sang a few beautiful non-film songs of the diverse genre such as nazaaron mein ho tum khayaalon mein ho tum, ye aawaara raaten ye khoyi si baaten, ‘nathhili se toota moti re’, ‘saawan ke rimjhim mein thirak thirak naache’ and many more.

In the 1960s, Manna Dey sang diverse types of songs some of which were not to his likings. But he accepted such songs to prove a point that he could sing any genre of Hindi films songs. Since he was regarded as a specialist in classical rendition, some music directors started using his classical rendition in the comical situations. For instance, he sang a Bhairavi thumri, arre hato kaahe ko jhoothhi banaao batiyaan in ‘Manzil’ (1960) which was made very famous by Ustad Faiyyaz Khan. In the similar situation, Manna Dey also rendered phool gendwa na maaro in ‘Dooj Ka Chaand’ (1964). He was also the main voice in one of landmark qawwalis of Hindi films, na to kaarwaan ki talaash hai in ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960).

Manna Dey also sang fun songs mostly for Mehmood in the 1960s like main tere pyaar mein kya kya na bana dilbar in ‘Ziddi’ (1964), aao twist karen jaag uthha mausam in ‘Bhoot Bangla’ (1965), o meri maina maan le mera kehna in ‘Pyaar Kiye Jaa’ (1966) and the iconic song, ek chatur naar kar ke singaar in ‘Padosan’ (1968).

Despite Manna Dey proving himself to be a versatile singer, he never got his dues that he deserved from Hindi film industry. From his interviews most of which he gave after he took the ‘self-imposed exile’ from Hindi film industry in the 1990s, his frustration about the way he was treated by Hindi film industry is quite apparent. In his interviews, Manna Dey gave a few instances where producers openly said their preference for Mukesh in front of him for the songs he was to sing. Fortunately, in most such cases, the concerned music directors stood for him. One such instance which Manna Dey did not reveal openly but shared with Pulak Bandyopadhyay, the lyricist for Bangla films and non-films songs:

When Manna Dey was rehearsing the song, tere naina talaash karen from ‘Talaash’ (1969) with S D Burman in his music room, O P Ralhan, the producer-director of the film walked in and listened to the song. In the presence of Manna Dey, O P Ralhan asked Burmanda as to why not Mukesh sing. Burmanda replied that Mukesh can not sing this song. O P Ralhan’s repartee to Burmanda was that why did he compose song which could not be sung by Mukesh ? Burmanda lost his cool and told O P Ralhan that if he wants S D Buirman’s music for ‘Talaash’, this song will have this tune and it would be sung by Manna Dey only. If he does not like this arrangement, he can look for another music director. O P Ralhan retreated from his stand. On the day of celebration of the silver jubilee of the film, O P Ralhan said ‘S D Burman Saab, you are our Dada – our eternal Dada’ [from Pulak Bandyopadhyay’s autobiography in Bengali ‘Kathay Kathay Raat Hoye Jay’ quoted in ‘S D Burman – The World of His Music’ by Khagesh Dev Burman (2013)].

Probably, Manna Dey lacked the ‘glamour’ quotient which his contemporaries, Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood and later Kishore Kumar had due to their large and strong fan-followings many of them could turn out to be the ‘fanatic’ fans. A large fan-following drives the box office demand for a playback singer. Nonetheless, Manna Dey has left with us scores of his immortal songs as a proof of his versatility to cherish his memory.

On the occasion of 8th Remembrance Day of Manna Dey, I have selected one of his trade mark semi-classical songs, ‘man bhaawan sangeet suhaawan’ which is the only remaining song from ‘Chandramukhi’ (1960) to be covered on the Blog. The song was written by Bharat Vyas which was set to music by S N Tripathi.

‘Chandramukhi’ (1960) had 8 songs of which 7 songs have been covered on the Blog as under:

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Leela-1947. The film was made by Filmistan. The film was directed by Dattaram Pai. He was essentially a film editor and did editing in several films including Achhut Kanya,Jagriti,Nastik,Kismet,Samadhi,Sargam,Woh kaun thi,Chingari etc.He did editing in 24 films from 1936 to 1998-a span of 62 years.He died in 2000. He had earlier directed the film Eight Days-1946, which was actually directed by Ashok Kumar, but Pai’s name was advertised as a Director. In the case of the film Leela -47, he tried on his own but the result was not so good. He went back to his job of Editing quietly.

Lyricists were Qamar Jalalabadi and G.S.Nepali. The music was by C.Ramchandra. For C Ramchandra, finding Filmistan was a goal achievement, because those days he had left Jayant Desai’s company and was looking for another film company.His good old friend Kavi Pradeep, who was close to S.Mukherjee from their Bombay Talkies days, brought in a very lucrative offer from Filmistan and C Ramchandra joined it with pleasure.

Though C Ramchandra had begun his career in 1942 with Sukhi Jeevan, his first Hindi film as a MD, his music had not flourished till he joined Filmistan. The 5 films he had made with Jayant Desai were reasonably good but they were not Hits. It was only in Filmistan he achieved what one would call-Success. Out of the 11 films that he made here. His success rate was more than 50%. Especially, the music of films like Shehnai-1947, Saajan-1947, Khidki-1948, Nadiya ke paar-1948, Patanga-1949, Samadhi-1950 and Anarkali-1953 created songs which are remembered even today. To make songs whose popularity lasted for more than 70++ years, is surely an achievement.

It was also when he was with Filmistan that people were comparing him and Naushad and a discussion always circulated who was the Numero Uno as an MD. Though I am a C Ramchandra Fan, I am of the opinion that in the race of creating everlasting Hit songs, C Ramchandra was no match to Naushad. The strike rate of Naushad’s Hit films was much much more than that of C Ramchandra.

In the year 1946, C Ramchandra gave music to 4 films(1 for Filmistan), in 1947 it was 7 films (4 for Filmistan) and in 48 films were 8 (2 for Filmistan). So, in these 3 years, he did 19 films (7 for Filmistan). The rest consisted of stunt films of Master Bhagwan and other social films. Hit films were -5, all for Filmistan. If you see data for Naushad in the same period i.e. 1946,1947 and 1948, Naushad did only 8 films, but in these, 6 celebrated Silver Jubilee and 1 Golden Jubilee. Only Elan-1947 did not do well musically, though it was a hit film by Mehboob khan. The record of Naushad in success is unique. Out of the 64 films of Naushad (I am not counting Pakiza), there were 3 Diamond Jubilee films, 6 Golden Jubilee films and 23 Silver jubilee films ! I am sure no one can surpass the success of Naushad. His average number of songs per film comes to 10 songs, while for CR it is 8.4 only.

In the 40’s and 50’s decades many films were made on the background of play theatres and dance theatres. There were 2 possible reasons. One- prior to the advent of Silent and Talkie films, the main entertainment source for common people was Stage dramas. Despite the films, the stage dramas and dance troupes thrived. Hence it was used as a base for film stories. Secondly, this automatically provided plenty of scope for songs in the film. The last such film, in which a Drama company was the base of the film story I remember having seen was ” Hum sab chor hain ”-1956. After this film, at least I have not seen any such other film.

So, according to this norm, the film Leela-47 was about Drama companies and their artistes etc. The story was by Uma Devi-the singer, s/play by producer Gyan Mukherjee and Dialogues by Rajendra Shankar.

LEELA is a story of Naresh(Kanu Roy) and Leela(Shobha),their love,separation and union.

Naresh runs “Vidya Mandir” an institute where Mahabharat is made in several languages. Mrs Lal(Sunalini Devi) is the owner of “Kala bhavan”.She has a daughter Indira(Veera),whom she wants to marry Naresh.Once she arranges a show in aid of Vidya Mandir-Shakuntala.

Leela who is aspiring starlet approches Naresh who recommends her to the show and she is taken,but when Mrs.Lal knows that she came thru Naresh,Leela is not only removed from the show but also thrown out of the hostel.

Naresh, through his friend Shastriji(Agha) brings her to Vidya Mandir and gets her into another show.They fall in love and decide to marry.Naresh goes to his village and tells his mother(Leela Mishra) about Leela,but she wants only Indira.Feeling unwanted and rejected,Leela goes away.
Shatriji finds her and explains the love of Naresh for her and brings her back and the lovers are united forever.

The Heroine of this film, Shobha, unfortunately remains an actress about whom no information is available. On going through the HFGK, I find her name in at least 20++ films. Sometimes she is listed as Shobha Devi. Another bit of information about Shobha was that the actress Lata Sinha, who started as a child star (as Baby Lata) in Riyasat-55 and Nau Do Gyarah-1957 etc. was her daughter. Lata did a good role in Bees saal baad-1962. She mainly acted in action/stunt, costume and other B and C grade films only. She was also in the film Bhoot Bungla-1965.

The Hero of this film was Kanu Roy. The name KANU ROY is another instance of ” Same name confusion “. There was a composer also by the name Kanu Roy who gave music in a few films, in the same period. Most people and many internet sites, including IMDB,consider these two different persons as one and claim films for acting and music together,as if he was an actor and a composer. In Hindi films this happened routinely, but in the early era of Talkie films. Master Krishnarao, Vinayakrao Patwardhan, Master Mohammed, Badriprasad, Vithaldas Panchotiya etc can be quoted as actors/composers. Lately only the name of Kishore Kumar comes to mind in this category. Let us see who these two Kanu Roys were…..

Kanu Roy (the Actor) was in reality a name for Nalini Ranjan Roy, born at Jabalpur. He was very fond of acting and so landed at Bombay Talkies,a company started by 2 Benagalese- Himanshu Roy and Devika Rani. Those days many people from Bengal used to come to Bombay Talkies, but only the capable ones like Amiya Chakravarty, Shashadhar Mukherjee or Ashok Kumar etc could make their careers here. Kanu Roy started his acting career with the film Basant-1942. His name Nalini was sounding like a Girl’s name in Bombay ( there were already half a dozen Nalini’s working in films those days), so it was changed and he opted for Kanu, his pet name in the house. Thus Kanu Roy came into films. Due to his good looks, he even became a lead actor in a few films. Nazrana-46 (UR) was one such film where he was working opposite Kamini Kaushal. Kanu Roy worked in about 46 films from 42 to 83 ( kisi se naa kehna). Kanu Roy also left Bombay Talkies along with S.Mukherjee and others and joined Filmistan. He was in many Filmistan films like, Munim ji, Nastik, Naagin, Jagriti etc. He acted in a Bangla film ‘Samar’too in 1950. ( I have his full Filmography.)

Kanu Roy (the Composer) gave music to very few films like Uski Kahaani-66, Anubhav-71, Avishkar-74, Tumhara Kallu-76, Grih pravesh-79, Mayuri-81 and Shyamla-79 which was re-censored in 1981 as Woh phir na aayee. Some people and sites describe him as Geeta Dutt’s brother, but he was not her brother. Her brother was Mukul Roy. Kanu Roy, the composer died in Bombay on 20-12-1981.

Today’s song is a very good song, sung by Shamshad begum. Somehow I get reminded of another 1947 film song ” maari katari mar jaana” after listening to today’s song. That song is also composed by CR only- from film Shehnayi-47. There were 9 songs in the film. 8 songs were already discussed. Today’s song is the 9th and the last song of this film. The film gets YIPPEED !

Main usey pyaar karna sikhaaun
dil ki baaten nazar se sunaaun
dil ki baaten nazar se sunaaun
wo dulhan ki tarah sharmaaye
haan wo sharmaaye
haaye re haaye
Piya kaisa mila hamein haay

kar ke apni nazar neechi neechi
kar ke apni nazar neechi neechi
baat karne lage pheeki pheeki
baat karne lage pheeki pheeki
meethhi baaten tujhe kaun sikhaaye
tujhe kaun sikhaaye
haaye re haaye
Piya kaisa mila hamein haay

baat chhedo koi muskuraa ke
baat chhedo koi muskuraa ke
door baithhe ho kyun paas aa ke
door baithhe ho kyun paas aa ke
apna ban kar huye kyun pare
huye kyun pare
haaye re haaye
Piya kaisa mila hamein haay

kya mila humko aankhen milaa ke
kya mila humko aankhen milaa ke
main to keh doongi ghar ghar mein jaa ke
main to keh doongi ghar ghar mein jaa ke
koi aison se dil na lagaaye
haan dil na lagaaye
ke jisko pyaar na karna aaye
haaye re haaye
Piya kaisa mila hamein haay

Today’s song is from a very old, i.e. 83 year old film, which was one of the popular films of Wadia Movietone. The film was Lutaru Lalna-1938 and the title role was done by then famous stunt queen The Fearless nadia. Yes, this was a C grade stunt film. In those years, when the Talkie itself had not even entered it’s Teens, these stunt films, especially featuring Nadia were very popular. C grade stunt films were not yet looked down upon by the elite. That categorisation started from the mid 40’s, when social and films of other Genres divided the audience and stunts became the choice of the lower class of the society.

When the Talkie films started, the audience was awestruck and went to the theatres to see and enjoy whatever the producers served them on the screen. Initially, the films were mostly Mythological and Costume dramas, but in due course, the film makers realised that making a stunt film was much more profitable than a Costume drama. Stunt films could be made in Rs. 30-50 thousand, whereas for other films, the investment was more. Further religious films catered to only a particular religion, i.e. Muslim and Christian audience would not see a Mythological film and Hindu and Christians will not see a Muslim religious film. But stunt films were for all and sundry. There was no restriction.

Due to all this, the pioneers of stunt/action films decided to concentrate on this Genre only. Wadia Movietone was the leading film maker of these C grade films. Other companies who made such films were, Imperial, Ranjit, Sharda, krishna, Saraswati, Saroj, Sagar, Bharat Royal, Ajanta, Madan etc. in 1933 Wadias entered with force in this market, and followed by others, in just 3 years i.e. from 1933 to 1935, a total of 138 films of Stunt/Action, Costume, Arabian Night stories and magic based Imaginary films ( all C grade) were made. Significantly, out of these 138 films, as many as 42 films were Stunt and Action films. This was mainly because of Wadia Movietone. They introduced Fearless Nadia in Hunterwali-35 and virtually ignited the flame of Stunt/Action films from 1935 to 1950. Thus the decade of the 40s could well be called “Stunt Film Decade” with 210 such films from 1941 to 1950.

Wadia Movietone was a noted Indian film production company and studio, based in Mumbai, established in 1933 by Wadia brothers J. B. H. Wadia and Homi Wadia. It was most known for stunt, fantasy and mythological films, including Hunterwali (1935).

Wadia brothers belonged to a Parsi family, and their ancestors came from the ship building Wadia family (Wadia Group), originally from Surat, which also built the British wartime ship HMS Trincomalee (1817). Their ancestors moved to Bombay in the 18th century. It was co-established in 1933, by producer and screenwriter J. B. H. Wadia, his younger brother director Homi Wadia, film distributor Manchersha B. Billimoria, and brothers Burjor and Nadirsha Tata.

However, the Tata brothers left the partnership within three years. The company then continued production of film, documentaries and newsreels from its studios near Lowjee Castle, Mumbai, the Wadia family mansion, owned by their great-grandfather Lovji Nusserwanjee Wadia, a noted shipbuilder, who founded the Wadia Group in 1736. The company even had its logo as a ship, honouring their family legacy. Their company made Hunterwali (1935) starring Fearless Nadia, Boman Shroff and John Cawas, which became a surprise hit and its first big success. Thereafter, they made several films based on the Arabian Nights.

However, by the end the 1930s, the genre of stunt, fantasy and mythology films which dominated the early films, was beginning to fail and the company ran into heavy losses, after they invested into ambitious projects which flopped. The last film made by the company was Raj Nartaki (1941) under the direction of Madhu Bose. Thereafter, the studio premises were up for sale; V. Shantaram bought the studio in 1942 and established Rajkamal Kalamandir on the premises. Homi Wadia, who worked as a director of the company, went on to establish Basant Pictures in the same year, though initially as a film production house. Subsequently, he established a film studio under the same banner in 1947, which functioned till 1981.

Riyad Vinci Wadia, grandson of J.B.H. Wadia inherited the studio in 1990. He is most known for his film, Bomgay (1996) and a documentary on Nadia, Fearless: The Hunterwali Story. He died in 2003. Wadia Movietone, besides making stunt films, had some FIRSTs to their credit like, they made India’s first songless movie ” Naujawan” in 1937. First English film “The Court Dancer’-1941 and the first Sindhi film ” Ekta”-1942. They also made a Telugu film “Nar Narayan”-37, two Tamil films ‘Vanraz Karsan’-38 and Bharat kesari-39, one Bangla film ” Raj Nartaki”-41 and one Gujrati film Valo Namori-73.

From 1933 to 1942(till the split) they made 43 films. From 43 to 73 only 24 films. Their last Hindi film was Saaz aur Sanam-71 and the overall last film was a Gujarati film in 1973. J.B.H.Wadia was born on 13-12-1901 and died on 4-1-1986. His brother Homi Wadia was born on 22-5-1911 and died on 10-12-2004.

Their Ace Actress for most films was Fearless Nadia.

Mary Evans (Fearless Nadia’s real name), a devout catholic was born on 8-1-1908 at Perth, Australia, to a Scottish father and a Greek mother. Father,a British Army soldier, was based in Elephanta caves in Bombay. She wanted to be a singer and a dancer. She learnt dancing from father and singing from mother. She sang in the local church choirs on Sundays. In 1915, when her father died in WW I action, they shifted to first Peshawar and then settled in Bombay. After working in an Army canteen for some time, She joined a dancing troupe. Here her name was changed to first NADA and then to NADIA.

One Mr. Eruch Kanga, owner of Lahore cinema saw her performance in the troupe and told the Wadia Brothers, who were looking for a Heroine. They called her for an interview. After seeing her, the brothers realised the difficulty in making a white woman a Heroine in Hindi films. In the interview JBH wadia said, “I have never heard about you before. ” she sprightly retorted,” I too had not heard your names till this morning”. The brothers were impressed and she was appointed in Wadia Movietone. To test her, she was given small roles in films which were in the making, like Lal e yaman and Noor e yaman, while she studied speaking Hindi.

She was launched with ” HUNTERWALI-1935″ ,a dramatic story of a Princess trying to rescue her kidnapped father and salvage his Empire. It was an unconventional role and a new subject for the Indian audience.

The film opened in Super cinema on Lamington road, Bombay and instantly became a great Hit. It was like a revolution. Audience was thrilled to see a white woman, donning a mask and cracking whip at her tormentors. They were awed, happy and mesmerised, wanting more of it .She was named NADIA. They added FEARLESS for her in the ads.

HUNTERWALI was only a prelude to a remarkable career. Encouraged by the success of Hunterwali, films were made on the cause of social injustice, women’s emancipation, corruption, Land grabbing and Exploitation of the poor. She always played roles like King Arthur and Robin Hood.

Her films had a set of characters. There was her pet Horse-Punjab ka Beta, Gunboat the Dog and her jalopy was called Rolls Royce ki beti (later when Homi Bhabha started Basant Pictures with her, there was Horse Rajpoot, Dog Moti and the car- Austin ki Bachhi). In her films, usually the villain was Sayani (his stock line was ” Dekha Jaayega”), John Cawas and Boman Shroff- the heavyweight Bodybuilders.

Her stunts became more dangerous and death defying with every film. She did all her stunts herself, breaking bones many times in this.

From 1933 to 1968 she did 43 films. herv first film was Lal-E-Yaman-33 and the last film was Khiladi-68. She also sang 3 songs in 3 films, namely Noor-E-yaman-35, Hunterwali-35 and Pahadi kanya-36. Her name in many films (starting with Hunterwali) was Madhuri.

She had married and divorced early and also had a son. Later she was in love with Homi Wadia, but could not marry him due to the opposition of his mother. They married in 1961 after his mother died. She was 53 years old by then.

In her last days she was frequently seen in the lanes of Colaba in Bombay ,taking her dogs for walks.

In 1993, her great grand nephew Riyad Vinci Wadia made a documentary on her, in which she had appeared.

She died peacefully on 9-1-1996.

Nadia has a special place in my memories. Sometime in 1972, one of my friends, Mahesh Sharma, who lived in Colaba, Bombay, told me that he frequently sees Nadia in a Garden where he went for his morning walks. She lived near his apartments. Anxious to meet her and talk to her, I stayed with Sharma ji overnight. Next day morning, we both went to that garden. Sure enough, after some time Nadia entered the garden with two of her dogs. She sat on a bench and her servant took the dogs for their walks. Mahesh had a casual acquaintance with her. He greeted her and said ” this is my friend Mr. Deshmukh. He is your great fan “. I greeted her and recited names of her 10-15 films which I had seen. She looked suitably impressed . She smiled and we talked for a few minutes and left. Alas ! In those days, there was no Mobile phone, otherwise I would have had my photos with her as a prize possession. Anyway, I will never forget my meeting with her- the great Stunt Queen, The Fearless Nadia !

Today’s song is sung by Sarita, Master Muhammed and chorus. It is a typical 30’s decade song. The story of this film was almost the same as any other film of Nadia. Kind and simple king, cruel and wicked Senapati, a Masked person to fight against him , a love affair and happy ending after the audience was given a full dose of stunts by Nadia.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is heavily inspired by this song. This 1973 song which was sung by Kishore Kumar had Dharmendra trying to pacify his upset love Rekha. He resorted to all kinds of buffoonery to get a smile on her face and also get her to admit her love for him

In today’s song Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar is the voice for Dharmendra’s son Sunny Deol. Sunny is running behind a ‘roothhi’ Meenakshi Seshadri and trying to get her to re-admit her love. So, the situation is like this. Just before this song, Sunny -who is a boxer for his college- has been reprimanded by his coach (Viju Khote) for day-dreaming about Meenakshi. Consequently, he refuses to acknowledge when she comes to meet him at his coaching camp. Later, when Sunny goes to meet her at a cafe, she pays him back in the same coin and also gathers public support citing that he is eve-teasing her. Now, it is the duty of our naayak to ‘manao’ a ‘roothhi’ naayikaa.

Hence this song which is written by Anjaan and composed by Bappi Lahiri. As I have said in the previous paragraph the male voice is Amit Kumar’s and S. Janaki sings for Meenakshi Seshadri. This marks the debut of “Ghayal” (as written in the titles of the movie). This 1990 movie starred Raj Babbar and Moushumi Chatterjee as Sunny’s bhaiyya and bhabhi. Amrish Puri played Balwant Rai (the villain) with Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Om Puri, Ashalata, Shafi Inamdar, Annu Kapoor etc in supporting roles. There were a few actors like Shabbir Khan, Sudesh Berry and Mitwa who played Sunny’s support in his mission to expose the wrong-doings of the big-time businessman Balwant Rai. Disco Shanti had a dance number too.

I am writing this post to wish the ‘dhai kilo ke haath’ wala, hand-pump ookhadnewala (uprooting a hand-pump), strong dialogue delivery wala, son of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur- Ajay Singh Deol a.k.a Sunny Deol- on his birthday today. . It is apparent from his recent movies that he is a huge fan of his father. He has acted in three editions of a movie whose title was inspired by a famous song of his father from the ’70s- the Yamla Pagla Deewana series. He also chose another of his father’s song from the ’70s to use as a title for a movie that he directed to launch his son Karan in Bollywood- Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. Additionally he has acted with his father in ‘Sultanat’, ‘Apne’ and a few more.
Happy birthday Sunny Deol.
