Bahaar le ke aayi karaar le ke aayi

Believe it or not, but LUCK plays a great role in the Film Industry.

I am not talking about the ‘Rags to Riches’ or ‘ Riches to Rags’ stories in the film industry. They are there, ofcourse, for everyone to see.

I am thinking about all those geniuses and and born actors, who could never make it to the top. I am thinking of those extras, who came all the way from far off places, with dreams in their eyes and finally ended up as ‘Junior Artists’ -a respectful term for Extras.

I am also thinking of all those Talented Composers, like Sajjad Hussain, Daan Singh, Vinod, Sardar Malik, C Arjun, Shridhar Parsekar and few others, who, despite their Talents and art could never make it big in the Film Industry.

I am also talking about those superfine actors who were sensitive, talented, hardworking but could not make it to the Top in their lives.

I am also talking about those actors, who were very good looking, but actually Zero in expressions and acting, but still made it to the Top for some period. Those actors, after whom the producers were running with fat moneybags and those actors who got much more than what they actually deserved for their ‘acting’.

Interstingly, in each decade of the 40s, 50s and 60s there was atleast one actor who had an extraordinary luck which took him to the top-but not for long. These actors worked with Top actresses of their times, got the best songs and films were made only for them.

In the 40s, it was KARAN DEWAN. He came to the Silver screen with Punjabi film ‘Puran Bahadur’, but it was Ratan -44 which made his life. The music of Ratan made history and he became a STAR overnight. He was a good-looker, but actingwise he was Zero. His luck was so strong that after Ratan-44, roles came to him in scores and he acted with the best Heroines of his days-like Nargis, Meena Kumari, Nalini Jaywant, Suraiya, Madhubala, Noorjahan, Munawwar Sultana, Swarnalata, Meena Shorey,Kamini Kaushal, Geeta Bali, Vyjayantimala, Sandhya etc etc….

Once his luck worn out, he had to work as a Production Manager with B R Chopra. When he died, only his collegues from the Cine Artists’ Association, viz.Chandrasekhar and Manmohan Krishna attended his funeral- nobody else from the film industry !

The ‘Chikna’ Hero of the 50’s was BHARAT BHUSHAN. Though he started with Chitralekha -1941 ( he was in the role of a disciple in the Ashram and was No 17 in the credits of the film!),he became famous because of the musical films of the 50s. He did about 180 films in his career and worked, without exception, with all leading Heroines of his times. He also got the best songs of the decade.

However he never won any acclaim for his acting skills. He always survived with best music and beautiful heroines. Once this supply receded, his days were numbered and he spent his last days in difficult times.

In the 60s and the third in this list was PRADEEP KUMAR, whose top period was late 50s and all 60s, though his last film came in 1994-2 years after his death. Actingwise he was most ordinary, but in looks he always looked Royal. Roles of princes and Kings suited him best. I do not remember the film name, but in one film he is shown begging on the road, but even there he was looking like as if he was the king of beggars !

Handsome all Three-they also had one thing common amongst them- Their brothers produced films for them.

Jaimini Dewan made films( including Ratan) for Karan Dewan. R.Chandra produced films for Bharat Bhushan and Kalidas was the producer for many of Pradeep Kumar’s films.

Pradeep Kumar (1925-1992) started Hindi films with Anand Math-1952. His luck flourished and he became famous with Anarkali-53 and Nagin-54.

He did about 150 films in his career. When luck watered down,he switched over to Character roles from Sambandh-1969. he did * films with Mala Sinha and & films with Meena Kumari. he did many films as a Police Officer,but even in that role he looked a ‘Raees” policeman !

Today we will see a wonderful song and dance performance by Vyjayantimala, in the film JAWANI KI HAWA-1959. This is one song which I liked from this film.

It was a film from All India Pictures and produced by P N Arora ( who ditched Helen, after 30 years of Loyal companionship).The director was M.Sadiq-a veteran, with music from Ravi.

In this film Ravi’s assistant was FRANK- one of the ‘Roy-Frank’ pair of Music Directors, who gave music to only one film GOGOLA (reviewed in this Blog on 22-`10-2011).

There were 7 songs in the film. The cast was Pradeep Kumar,Vyjayantimala, Purnima, Johnny Walker, Badri Prasad, Helen, Raj Mehra etc.

The story was-

The film opens with Lata(Vyjyanti Mala) trying to escape from a Ticket checker on a train. She pretends to travel with Chand(Pradeep Kumar) a simple and aspiring youth in search of his luck, travelling on the same train. The TC takes money from Chand for her ticket. At Bombay Lata disappears.

Chand the simpleton is duped by a smart guy- Khosla(Johnny Walker) of his money and his coat too. Luckily, Chand meets an eccentric millionaire who gives him the task of tracing his lost daughter Sandhya (Purnima).

In his work,Chand meets Khosla again, but this time they become friends and Khosla makes his room arrangements in Bombay. He also meets Lata, who seems to have become very rich. Lata offers Chand the opportunity to stay with her, but suspicious Chand refuses it.

Chand traces Sandhya at a Child lifters’ den and rescues her. When he brings her to her father, he refuses to accept her as she is pregnant.

Kind hearted Chand decides to marry Sandhya to give her respectability. When Lata comes to know about all this, she assures to extend help to them.

Sandhya realises that these two are in love and persuades them to unite again.

This news flashes in papers and Sandhya’s father repents. He meets Chand and takes Sandhya with him and also gives a fat cheque and an offer of a job to Chaand. All is well that ends well !

Let us enjoy a song and dance number by Vyjayantimala from this movie in Asha Bhonsle’s melodious voice.

mil gaya raste mein saathh suhaana
mil gaya raste mein saathh suhaana
samjhe thhe hum jise ek pardesi
nikla wo apna hi meet puraana
nikla wo apna hi meet puraana
li pyaar ne angdaayi

raat sitaaron waali
ho o o o

dil ki nagariya mein deep jale jab
aa gaya hathon me haath kisi ka
aa gaya haathon mein haath kisi ka
rat na hogi koi aisi rangili
din bhi na hoga koi aisa khushi ka
din bhi na hoga koi aisa khushi ka
muraad man ki paayi

preet ki duniya mil gayi mujhko
pyaar mein sab kuchh haar chali main
pyaar mein sab kuchh haar chali main
ab gunjegi shehnaayi karaar le ke aayi
raat sitaaron waali
ho o o
raat sitaaron waali
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa a aa
bahaar leke aayi
karaar leke aayi
rat sitaaro waali
ho o o
raat sitaaron waali

Arunji,

Pradeep Kumar passed away in 2001. I think u probably meant Bharat Bhushan when u mentioned 1992.
