THE VELVET MAGIC-TALAT DUETS….Song No.- 8
————————————————

Today it is a male duet. Talat sings with Balbir and chorus in the film ‘Hatimtai ki Beti’-55.

When I was very young and had just started taking interest in reading books and seeing films, I always felt that HATIMTAI is a girl’s name. This was because “Tai”in Marathi, means Didi in Hindi. It was only after I read the book “Arabian Night stories”, that I knew that Hatimtai was a Male name !

According to Wiki, Hatim-Al-Tai or Hatim-Al-Taeei was a 6th century Arabian Christian poet. He was adventurous and very generous. His name is mentioned in Arabian Night stories too. It seems a beautiful princess Husn Bano asked seven questions and declared that she will marry only than man who is able to answer these questions. A neighbouring king fell into her love and Hatimtai helped him find all the seven answers.

Hatim of Arabia was a Christian and a contemporary of prophet Mohammed, but they never met. He was famous for his generosity,wisdom,courage and hospitality. Later his son was converted to Islam.

Hatimtai’s story has always attracted film makers from the era of silent movie onwards. There were four films titled “Hatimtai”. In addition, there was a film ‘Hatimtai’which was made in four parts in 1933, each being a separate full fledged movie. ‘Son of Hatimtai’ was made twice and ‘Hatimtai ki beti’ was also made twice. Hatimtai films had plenty of magic, adventure, dance and drama with humour in them. Among Ç grade films, Hatimtai films were very popular topics makers and watchers among C Grade movie makers and watchers.

‘Hatimtai ki Beti’was made in 1940 and 1955. Both these films were directed by Nanubhai Vakil. Sarojini,Indurani,Anil kumar etc were in the in the 1940 movie. That film was produced very lavishly by Sagar Movietone. In those days it cost them Rs. 1 Lakh 25 thousand rupees. The outdoor shooting was done in Agra and Fatehpur Sikri.

The Heroine Sarojini ( real name Roshan aka Ranee) was married to Nanubhai Vakil. Their daughter Azra was also an actress in the 60s and 70s. Her debut role in ‘Love in Shimla’-60 was quite memorable. The film’s other Heroine Indurani was Sarojini’s own sister and she was married to Ramniklal Shah. ( similarly readers may recall that Nanabhai Bhatt was also married to a starlet Shirin. Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt are their chidren.) Actresses marrying the producers or Directors was a common occurence in those days.

Gujarat has enriched Hindi Film Industry more than any other state-by providing Producers and Directors. Though the industry was based in Maharashtra, it generally provided actors, actresses and composers in the early era, but not the producers. Money and tremendous hard work was iously onvthe hallmark of Gujarati community. The Shahs, Desais and the Bhatts, along with other people have contributed to Hindi movies in various capacities viz. Directors, producers, Cinematographers and studio owners. They provided employment to thousands and gave opportunities to capable artists. Nanubhai Vakil was one such person.

There was a time when many people from Valsad region of Gujarat came to films. Nanubhai was also born in Bulsar (valsad) on 24-12-1904 (as per IMDB). Originally a Desai from Bulsar, Nanuhai’s father was a Lawyer. Nanubhai studied in Wilson college, Bombay and became BA LLB. He became a Lawyer, but never practiced. Instead he joined films in 1926. In his 45 years’career he directed 20 silent films and 70 Talkie films.

His speciality was mainly directing Action stunt films, Costume dramas and Fantasy films. His starcast used to be Bilimoria, Ishwarlal, Shanta kumari, Putli, Madhvi etc for silent films and artistes like Sarojini, Indurani, Navinchandra, Rafiq, Prakash, Gulnar,Daljit, Chitra etc. in his Talkie films. It is not that he never used others than them. Zubeida, Yakub, Jal Merchant, Jaddanbai, Shanta Hublikar, Nimmi, Veena, Jairaj, Shakeela, Nirupa Roy, Nadira, Mehmood etc have also worked in his films.

He was a daring person and gave gave opportunities to many people. He made Sarojini a Heroine in many of his films. Zubeida too got many roles with him. He gave help to A R Qureshi ( Tabla expert Allah Rakha-father of Zakir Hussain Tabla mestro), Amirbai Karnataki was given many acting roles in his movies. S D Burman sang his first Hindi film song in Nanubhai’s film Taj mahal-41. Juthika Roy sang in his Lalkar-56. Kaifi Azmi wrote stories for him.

He was a Director, writer and producer too. He produced 6 films. Hatimtai ki Beti-40 and Hatimtai ki Beti-55, both were directed by him (the 55 film was produced by him as well). He made Alam Ara twice, in 1956 and 1973. He took Wazir Mohammed Khan in both versions and even made him sing the original Alam Ara’s song,”De de khuda ke naam” again.

He directed the First Gujarati Talkie film ‘Narsi Mehta’in 1932, made by Sagar Movietone. He remade most of his Silent films as Talkie films. He made 17 films with Mohan Studios. Nanubhai’s daughter Azra also became an actress. Her role in debut film ‘Love in Shimla’60 was much acclaimed.

Nanubhai Vakil had remained Vakil ( Lawyer) only in his name. He died on 29-12-1980.

In my younger days, I was very fond of Stunt and Fantasy films. I have seen the film ‘Hatimtai ki Beti’-55. here is its story…

HATIM TAI KI BETI-1955 was a costume drama set in the Arabian style. Produced by Nanubhai Vakil through his Vakil productions, it was directed by Nanubhai himself. The Music Director was A R Qureshi (Alla Rakha Qureshi,the famous Tabla player and father of Zakir Hussain,tabla maestro). His assistant was Damodar Sharma- who was himself was a well known composer in the 1930s and 40s. The lyrics were by Shevan Rizvi( 8 songs) and Kaifi Azmi (2 songs).

It is imagined ( it is declared just before the credits) that Hatimtai had 2daughters. The elder is Jahanara, the queen of Shahbad and the younger is Roshanara, who is known for feeding the poor and the needy always. The Shaitan(Devil ) and his assistant Badi can not tolerate Roshan’s goodness. They come and poison the food she distributes. All, including the queen, become sick. However due to her goodness Imaan and Neki come and all recover. Then the Devil’s team poisons Jahanara’s mind and she imprisons Roshanara.

Meanwhile the neighbouring king of Turin proposes marriage of his elder son Salim with Roshan, but Jahanara wants to marry him. At the same time Salim’s younger brother Aslam also wants to marry Roshan, so Salim withdraws and Aslam is married to Jahanara( as Roshan). On the wedding night truth is revealed. Aslam is imprisoned but rescued by his friends.

Now Salim comes and is imprisoned by Jahanara. Aslam comes with army and rescues Salim and imprisons Jahanara. Roshanara comes and begs for pardon to repentant Jahanara.

King and queen of Turin arrive for the marriage, but Shaitan and Badi become snakes and bite Salim and others. Roshan Ara prays to God and due to her good deeds,Imaan and Neki arrive and revive everyone.

Finally Aslam and Jahanara and Salim and Roshanara get married.

As per the new book,”Talat Mehmood-The velvet voice”. Talat has sung 777 songs in all, including film, NFS and all language songs etc. The book gives great details of every song of 777 songs. Since the author has given all songs Alphabetically, separate categorywisebreak up of his songs, like Hindi songs, NFS etc have not been provided. However as per the other estimate he sang about 450 Hindi Film songs. He sang 55 duets with Lata and 34 duets with Asha Bhonsle.

Let us now enjoy this qawwaali video from the film “Hatimtai ki Beti”-55 in the voices of Talat Mehmood, S Balbir and chorus. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Qureshi.

chaar din ki zindagaani

chaar din ki ye saraai hai
jismein rehna chand roz
o o o o o oz
kyon na kar jaaun jahaan mein naam apna chand roz
kyon na kar jaaun jahaan mein naam apna chand roz

Daaman-e-hasti gunaahon se bhara le jaaungaa
