Parody is a very interesting form of songs. Many people think that it is very easy to make a Parody song, but in my opinion, it is one of the most difficult forms to present. It is not just the tune of a popular song, but also the song situation in the film too, that has to be taken into account. It must have meaningful words to suit the purpose of the situation and must also evoke laughs. It is easier to make people cry, but it is very difficult to make people smile or laugh heartily.

Today we will enjoy a Parody song from a film Vishwas-1943, sung by Baby Madhuri. The song uses the popular tunes of songs from Khazanchi-41, Sikandar-41 and Khandaan-42.

The year 1943 was a continuation of major changes in Hindi film industry. 1942 saw separate establishments of Mehboob studios, Kardar productions, Rajkamal Kala Mandir of V. Shantaram, Filmistan (established by the break away group of Bombay Talkies) and Basant Pictures by Homi Wadia, who separated from his brother J B H Wadia of parent company Wadia Movietone.

Wadia Movietone had created, nurtured and developed a distinct audience group for Stunt films. They made 43 Stunt films from 1933 to 1942. Considering the changing trend of making Social films, the elder brother J B H Wadia ( Jamshed ji Boman ji Hormus ji Wadia) felt that Wadia Movietone must now make Social films instead if Stunt films. The younger brother Homi, however, thought that they can still make Stunt films for another one decade and they will continue to enjoy popularity. The brothers differed so much that they separated, with Homi starting his own Basant Pictures. Fearless Nadia was with him in this division. Later she married him, when both were in their 50s.

Ironically in 1942, J B H Wadia released a stunt film “Jungle princess”-42 and Homi released “Mauj”-42,a social film. Homi later did relesae his stunt film with Nadia-” Hunterwali ki Beti”-43 and Wadia Movietone released two social films- Ankh ki sharm and Vishwas in 43.

In continuation of the major changes of 1942, the year of 1943 too had its shares of major changes. Virendra Desai, Director fell in love with Nalini Jaywant and married her, though he was already married, having 3 children. Thrown out of Desai family, they both went to Calcutta.

N R Acharya, Director, who was with Bombay talkies and left it in 42,along with others ( but did not join them in Filmistan) started his own Acharya Art productions and made Aage kadam-43. Jayant Desai, after directing ‘ Bansari’ for Ranjit, started his own Jayant Desai productions and made Bhaktaraj-43. Ramnik Shah,a partner of Mohan studios made Dulhan-43 under his banner Ramnik productions.

Overall, the period from 1941 to 1944 was a period of major overhaul and transformation for the Industry. many young Directors and composers like Firoz Nizami, Khurshid Anwar and others became active in early 40s and then migrated to Pakistan after Partition or a little later. The trend of film music changed with the extraordinary success of Kismat-43 and Rattan-44. The name of the Banner or the Director or even actors did not matter as much as the name of the film music Director. Films were now sold on the names of Composers alike Naushad or C.Ramchandra. They became the Trump cards for the producers. Their prices started escalating and consequently even the actors ,Directors and others in the industry too hiked up their fees.

IInd World War had created new Millionaires ( because of Rationing and Black marketing ) and their money was now available as Finance for Films. This also created new dictators in deciding Directors, Actors and Composers for the films. Free-Lance system took roots and the studios reduced their employee lists. Contracts were made only for the films concerned.

Film VISHWAS-1943 was directed by JBH Wadia and the music was given by a New and Young Composer-his First Film- Feroz Nizami along with Master Chhaila Solanki ( Father of Usha Solanki-Marathi and Hindi Film heroine). Out of total 8 songs, only one was composed by Master Chhaila and the rest were by Nizami.

The cast of the film was Mehtab(later, wife of Sohrab Modi), Sulochana Chatterji, Gulab, Surendra, Trilok Kapoor, Nayampalli, Meena and baby Madhuri etc.

FIROZ NIZAMI was a multi faceted personality. More that a composer, he was a classical singer of Kirana Gharana. He was the ‘Chela’ of ustad Abdul Waheed Khan. Nizami had command over Urdu and English. In those days he was one of the few educated, graduate persons in Films. He used to proudly flaunt his B.A. degree in Ads and Credits of the films, after his name. After going to Pakistan he was acknowledged as a master in Music. He was appointed as the president of the Music Department of Pakistan Arts Council till he died on 15-11-1975. He wrote several English articles in papers on music. His book “Asrar -e-Mausiqi” was prescribed as a text Book inPakistan’s Punjab University Music degree course. He was an exponent on Sufi Mystique, Homeopathy, Metaphysics and an universal worshipper of Music-even Hindu Music.

Firoz Nizami will be best remembered for his evergreen songs of JUGNU-1947, particularly Rafi – Noorjahan song ” Yahan badla wafaa ka…”. Though the film JUGNU-47 was banned by Morarji Desai, the C.M. of Bombay State, for some period,as an outcome of a spat between Baburao Patel(editor,Mother India) and Noorjahan’s husband Shaukat Hussain, all the songs continued to enjoy public support.

Nizami was working in AIR at Delhi when he befriended Krishan Chander, Khursheed Anwar and Saadat Hasan Manto. Mohd.Rafi used to come to him for learning music from him.

He left the Radio job and came to Bombay to become a Music Director. His first film was Vishwas-43. Then came Umang, Uss paar, Piya Milan, Amar Raaj, Nek Perveen, Rangeen Kahaani and then JUGNU-47, his last film in India.

After Jugnu, he too migrated to Pakistan along with Noorjehan. In Pakistan he became a very popular composer and gave many hits.

The story of film VISHWAS-1943-

Niranjan, son of Sir Rajendra falls in love with a poor Pujari’s daughter Sharada. This is resented by his father and Niranjan and Sharada leave the town. In the Train they meet dada Gyan and his daughter Prabha. Gyan Dada helps them and gets them married too. When Niranjan gets a job in another town, he starts by train. Unfortunately, the trains meets with an accident. Niranjan becomes mad due to the shock caused by the accident and he starts wandering in jungles.
Here Sharada gives birth to Baby Madhuri. She does tailoring jobs for survival. After a few years, Madhuri joins the same school where Prabha is teaching. Dada Gyan is dead by then.

Coincidentally mad Niranjan comes to this town and meets Madhuri.Theybecome friends. Sir Rajendra and Prakash-his younger son are the trustees of the school where Prabha is teaching.

On one visit Rajendra gets attracted towards Madhuri and plays with her, while Prakash promptly falls in love with Prabha.

After a few days, Prakash refuses to marry Prabha fearing his father’s ire and Prabha decides to commit suicide. Madhuri learns this and she brings Sir Rajendra there. He has already regretted losing one son so Rajendra stops Sharada from suicide and blesses Prakash and her.

Niranjan appears there and when he tries to sit on Rajendra’s car. Prakash beats him, thinking him to be a mad man. Due to this impact Niranjan regains his memory and remembers everything.

Now everybody recognises everybody else and all is well with Niranjan/Sharada and Praksah/Prabha.

Today’s song is sung by Baby Maduri,whose real name was Mah Laqa. She was the daughter of M. Ali Baksh, M.D. and Iqbal begum,a cine artiste. In other words Baby Madhuri was the youngest sister of actress Meena Kumari and her sister actress Khurshid Jr. Born in a family of film people,Baby Madhuri was good in acting and singing. She was picked up by Director Nazir of Hind Pictures and took her for his film ‘ Sandesa ‘. ( He is the same Nazir, whose first wife was Sitara Devi. He was the maternal Uncle of K. Asif ( Mughal-e-Azam fame ) i.e. Mama. He later divorced Sitara devi ( actually, she had eloped with K.Asif ) and married Swarnalata and both migrated to Pakistan. Nazir’s studio was burnt during the communal riots in Bombay. Author Manto has detailed all this in his book. )

In Wadia’s film Vishwas-43, the talents of Baby Madhuri in acting and singing flowered and she was appreciated much. Then she acted and sang some songs in films like Anjaan,Jungle princess,Muqabala,Ekta(sindhi),Andhera,Mahatma Vidur,paraya Dhan,Bachpan,Nai maa etc etc.

She was very fond of new fashions and western clothes. She knew Riding,cycling and swimming too. She spoke good English,though not much educated.( Thanks to shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for info on Baby Madhuri).

Let us now enjoy this parody song Video from film Vishwas-43. Watch Baby Madhuri’s natural acting and singing.
