Not much is known about “Shin Shinaaki Boobla Boo”(1952). Our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh is one of the few who watched this movie during its first and only run. Here is what he has to say about this movie:-

When I heard this name SHIN SHINAKI BOOBLA BOO-1952 for the first time, I was perplexed as to what it meant. It was only after I saw the film in the 50s, that I came to know that Shin Shinaki is heroine’s name and Boobvla Boo is Hero’s name in the film ! One may wonder about the strange names. These were the fruits of the fertile imagination of the story and screenplay writer P L Santoshi and his assistant for this film Baleshwar Guru.

Santoshi wrote a story based on the Parsi Theatre Fantasy, in which there was ample opprtunity for attractive dancing and singing for Sadhana Bose and his favourite Rehana.

C Ramchandra who was a partner of his friend Santoshi in these ventures experimented with the film’s music by using jazz and Latin American Rhythm.

This was a revenge story. The heroine Sadhana Bose-Shin Shinaki-wants to kill Taishi who had killed her parents. Boobla Boo(Ranjan) who is a Dacoit helps her in this. After Taishi is killed, Shin Shinaki wants to kill his daughter Rehana too, with whom Ranjan falls in love.

In 1952 Government had amended the Cinematograph act, by which it got a right to ban any film, even after Censor certificate was issued, if the Governmentt felt that the film was worth banning.

Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo was the First film to become its victim. Though the film had been passed by central censor Board with a U certificate, the government banned the film stating that “The film has a low moral tone and accords glamour and heroism to criminals, treating sacred subject irreverently and it is against the interests of public decency and morality.”

The producers, Santoshi Production Limited appealed against the decision and subsequently the ban was revoked but it had killed the commercial success of the film anyway. The film did not come up even for a second run.

Two songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the third song from the movie. This song, which is the title song cum theme song of the movie is sung by Lata and C Ramchandra. P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

To this film goes the credit of being banned (for the first time?). Fortunately we can hear the marvellous music of Anna for which we must be grateful to HMV. Hasn’t even one print of the film survived (in Pakistan?)? You look at today’s films and you wonder how the Censor Board routinely passes films with similar theme. Changing times? P. S. Seshadri

Great! I have always wondered what the title meant. Thought it was to do with magic, like abracadabra

It is real thanks to the very informative encyclopedia, Arun Ji, for this enlightenment.
