Mohe ratiyaa neend na aaye

Posted on: August 1, 2012


These days people fight elections to come to power and once they get a taste for it, then want to cling to it at any cost. During mythological times, the King of gods, viz Lord Indra would cling to his chair like a leech. One did not have to fight elections to come to power those days. One needed to do tapasya (penance) in a jungle for long years. Whenever a tapaswi sage would decide to go to a jungle and do “tapasya”, Lord Indra would get worried, thinking that the sage was after his chair. So he would try to disrupt the “tapasya”.

Lord Indra knew only one way of disrupting the tapasya and that was by sending in some pretty “apsara” viz Menaka, Rambha, Urvashi etc. who would sing and dance and try to seduce the sage into giving up his tapasya. And mythological tales tell us that this ploy of Lord Indra succeeded almost every time.

An apsara seducing a sage has been picturised in Hindi movies many a times in mythological movies. In addition, such scenes have been picturised in non mythological movies too, mostly for laughs.

“Daamaad” (1951) was a comedy movie which was a Bima Production movie. It was directed by Brij Rani. The movie had Bhagwan, Pratima Devi, Cuckoo, Krishna Kumari, A. Shah, Yashodhara Katju, Habib, Jagirdar etc in it.

Today (1 august) happens to be the birth anniversary of Bhagwan Dada ( 1 august 1913- 4 february 2002). On this occasion here is a comedy song from “Daamad” (1951). This song is picturised as a stage song where Bhagwan plays a sage and Cuckoo plays an apsara out to seduce Bhagwan. The song is sung by Khan Mastana and Sulochana Kadam. Bahaar Ajmeri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shamu.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt. I thank our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh for the information that this song is composed by Shamu, who was one of the three composers of this movie, others being Indravadan Bhatt and Ram Panjwani.

Atul ji,
DAMAAD-1951 was a film which came after Bhagwan’s ALBELA.The tremendous success of ALBELA, made the financers,producers and directors to line up Bhagwan’s doorstep with project proposals.The success of Albela had also gone to the head of Bhagwan dada,without realisng the contribution of Geeta Bali and C.Ramchandra’s music to its success.He thought that it was due to him and he went on signing film after films in that period.As his new films started failing,the incomplete films were abandoned and Albela became his swan song,becaues from here only his slide down started slowly,though some more films like for example Bhagam Bhag etc were hits-again due to music and Kishore kumar.
Anyway The producer N.T.Madnaney never ever tried to produce any more films after Dammad-which was not at all successful on the Box Office.
The s/play and direction was by Brij Rani.There were 3 composers,Shamoo who had given music to begunah-1949 with Haribhai,Ram Panjwani-who was a novice and Indravadan Bhatt who had given music to 10 films in the late 40s.
The story was more or less same as Albela-a good for nothing fellow sings well and makes a fortune is the 1 line story of this film.
Chamak(Bhagwan) is too simple a person,who is a teacher in a school,where even his students make his fun.He gets married to a rich man’s daughter-Geeta(Krishna kumari).Chamak loses his job and his Father in law takes him to his house in a bigger town.Chamak is impressed with all the wealthy living and eats like a hog and sleeps like a dog every day.Honoured initially as the Son in Law of the house,slowly he is despised,insulted and treated shabbily by in laws for doing nothing.One day when Chamak is singing alone,the manager of the local theatre hears him,gets impressed and offers him job of a singer.Chamak accepts it and in no time becomes a famous singer and tours All India.
Seeing that he is famous,his inlaws start pampering him.
Now Chamak has become clever.He teaches a lesson to his inlaws and finally they realise their folly and all is well that ends well.
