Here is a song from film Sindbad the sailor-52.

The name of Sindbad will remind you the storybooks we have read in our childhood. Sindbad, Allauddin, Alibaba, Birbal-Akbar, Haatimtai, Gulebakavali, Vetal Pachhisi and many such books have entertained the growing children for many generations in the past. I do not know what today’s generation young children read. But then, do they read at all ? I guess these children see the stories on TV-not the ones I have mentioned here. Their Heroes are different.

I have seen the transition in reading habit across generations infront of my eyes. I read mythological, religious, Fantasy and Classic books. My daughters read comics of Phantom, Tom and Jerry, Walt Disney, The Big Five and finally Mills and Boon. Since I insisted on them, some classics like The kidnapped, Treasure island, Tom Sawyer, The Black beauty etc too were read. What I saw in my Grandchildren, I could never understand, By their times, in early 90s, so many TV channels had started and several New Comic Characters emerged. Tom and Jerry, Micky Mouse etc disappeared and strange characters like Pokomon etcbecame their staple TV diet.

I can not blame them. The whole world is seeing these changes and it is impossible to stop it now. But then one has to keep up with the Joneses too na ? The habit of reading books other than the Guide books is gone, so no question of reading the Classics. Religious stories ( barring probably Ganesha- My friend and Devon ke Dev, Mahadev on TV) are no more found. These books are not available in Book shops also !

In the film world also such changes took place. In the early era, only Mythological and Folk story films were being made. In the 40s however, social films were made in plenty. Some of them like Padosi or Elaan were truly revolutionary indeed. In the 50s, the Mythologicals made a solid come back; in fact in the decade the tally was 10 Religious/Mythological films every month-which works out to almost one film every 3 days ! Fantasy, Historical and Biographical films too made an inroad. Sindbad, Alladdin,Alibaba ( and their entire clan like son, daughter etc) Haatimtai and other Arabian Night stories too were made in the 50s. But Alas ! It was like a Flame getting bigger before extinguishing. In the 60s and thereafter this Genre started disappearing and now I think, there is no trace of them at all !!

The story of Sindbad always attracted me. He was like the King Vikrama and Vetal stories. Never tiring of doing the same things again and again. Thus actually Sindbad provided us stories of adventure and awe,in the childhood. ( A secret- even now I enjoy these films and see them on You Tube ! ).

This Sindbad, unknown to himself, did lot of good to composer Chitragupta also. Chitragupta (Shrivastav) started in 1946 but had to wait till 1952 to get an All India Hit music. His music in this film-Sindbad the Sailor-1952 became extremely popular. The songs, especially the duet by Rafi and Shamshad- “Adaa se jhoomte huye “, were hummed by everyone. In fact all the songs were so good that,I am sure,if Binaca Geetmala was there during those days, these songs would have remained on “Pehli Paydaan” for a long time. ( However,the song ‘Adaa se jhoomte hue’ had a suspicious similarity to the song “abhi to main jawaan hoon” from Afsana-51. Only the mukhda was similar sounding.)

The lead pair of this film was Ranjan and Naseem Bano. The Hero Ranjan was not a handsome fellow by any standards ( he was just tolerable) and not a good actor by every standard. Naseem Bano was famous as a Beauty Queen of the 40s. Later her daughter Saira Bano also got this title from promoters. This pair looked very odd. I remember a similar case when the original Hunk of Hindi Films-Shaikh Mukhtar was paired with beautiful Begum Para in a few films. This prompted the critics to call them “The Beauty and the Beast “.

In the early times of Film Industry, very few educated people used to join here. That is why a Graduate or Postgraduate used to flaunt his degrees with pride- like Moti,B.A.-the lyricist,or Kavi Pradeep’s pseudoname- Miss Kamal B.A. or even singer Surendra as B.A.,LL.B.

A highly qualified person and that too in an unrelated subject joining films was a wonder then. Thus, a young man with an unlikely name for a Hero, like RAMNARAYAN VENKATRAMAN SARMA Alias actor RANJAN was a novelty. Ranjan was born in Madras on 2-3-1918 in an orthodox Brahmin family. He did his B.A. with Physics and then completed M.Litt in Carnatak music and Dance and became a Research Fellow for Ph.D. He also became the Managing Editor of ‘ NATYAM ‘ a magazine for Dance,drama and Music. In total contrast to his expertise in fine arts, he learnt FENCING( Sword Fighting) after he saw it in the Olympic Games.

He was spotted by a Tamil Producer and he made his Debut in the film ” Ashok Kumar “-1941. After a few films in Tamil and Telugu he got the role of SHASHANK in the Magnum Opus film Chandralekha in 1948. The Drum dance and his fencing were the two major attractions of this film. The final sword fighting is considered the Longest ever Fencing fight in films till today ! The film was a Hit and Ranjan was fit for Action films. Ranjan was a very poor actor, but his Fencing skills were marvellous.

In 1949, came ” NISHAN “, based on Hollywood film ” The Corsican brothers’-one good and one bad . It was a story of twins. The audience liked a scene from the film which showed that there were marks on one brother’s back if the other one was whipped !. The film, in Hindi,Tamil and Telugu was a hit everywhere mainly for its fencing scenes.

In ‘Mangala’ opposite Bhanumati, he was the villain and the Hero too.

He was invited by New York University for a Fellowship, but Vasan did not leave him, so after Mangala-1950, as soon as the contract was over, Ranjan came to Bombay.

‘Shin shinaki Boobla Boo’-1952 saw him with Rehana but as a Romantic Hero he was worse than Bharat Bhushan or Pradeep Kumar !

He acted in Sindbad the sailor, Baghi, Shahenshah, Kafila, Baghdad, Baap Beti, Nishan Danka and a host of B and C grade films, many of them dubbed or remakes of southern films. He was known for only Fencing. But he never became famous like Stewart Granger in ” Scaramouche” for his fencing. In the 50s he acted in 23 films, in 60s he did 18 films and in 70s his tally was 17 films. A total of 58 films in Hindi.

After Sword fighting became obsolete he shifted to writing. The story of film MUNIMJI-55 was written by him. After a few years in south he was seen again in ‘Chor chor’-74 and ‘Chaitali’-76. Ram Balram was his last film.

He married a Muslim girl and she converted to Hinduism taking the name of Laxmi.

Ranjan wrote 12 books on Dancing and music.

He shifted to USA to live with his son, where he died on 12-9-1983, in New Jersey-USA, due to Heart attack. He was so much forgotten by then that even his Death news was not published in India.

Since the story of Sindbad is too well known, I am not repeating it here. Now let us enjoy this Dance and song from Sindbad the Sailor-52. It is sung by Asha Bhosle and chorus.Shyam Hindi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta. The song is picturised on Kammo and others who are seen dancing in front of Pran.

Arun-ji,
I think (may be wrong) it is ‘SINBAD’ and not ‘sinDbad’. You are a researcher, What do you say?

In English, it is spelled as Sinbad. In Hindi/Urdu books, it is always Sindbad.

Bharat ji,

Here is the real statement to allay all doubts-

“Sinbad the Sailor (also spelled Sindbad; Arabic: السندباد البحري as-Sindibād al-Baḥri) is a fictional sailor and the hero of a story-cycle of Middle Eastern origin, living in Baghdad, during the Abbasid Caliphate. During his voyages throughout the seas east of Africa and south of Asia, he has fantastic adventures going to magical places, meeting monsters, and encountering supernatural phenomena.”

Since the Arabic language writes it as SINDBAD, this must be the original spelling. The English people always twisted difficult and strange names to suit their convinience of spelling and calling. One glaring example is Bengali surnames. Mukhopadhyaya became Mukherjee,Chatopadhyaya became Chatterjee,Roy became Ray etc etc. They did this to all Indian languages,Arabic,Urdu and most foreign languages.
The smart Americans went one step ahead and dropped letters from spellings which were not pronounced,like OK for OKEY etc.
