Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 2
———————————————————

In the history of Rajputs, the name of Panna Dai has become immortal because of her supreme sacrifice. I first came to know about the story of Panna Dai in the Rajput history lesson during my school days. The only thing I remember of the story till a few days back was that Panna Dai sacrificed her own son to save the future Maharana of Mewad, Udai Singh for whom she was the Dai (Nanny). The detailed story of the 16th century nursemaid Panna Dai is available on Wikipedia.

What prompted me to look for the detailed story of Panna Dai was the film in the same name that was released in 1945. The film was produced by Kamalabai Mangalorekar under the banner of Pradeep Pictures and was directed by Ram Daryani. The star cast included Durga Khote in the role of Panna Dai, Chandramohan, M Ismail, Master Vithal, Meenakshi, Mubarak, Gope, Azurie, Gulab, Vasant Pehalwan, Leela Mishra etc.

As per http://www.myswar.com, the film had 10 songs penned by D N Madhok (8) and Deewan Sharar (2) which were set to music by Gyan Dutt. However, in the film’s advertisement which appeared in February 1945 issue of FILMINDIA (i.e., about 2 months prior to the release of the film), names of Gyan Dutt and Pandit Govindram were mentioned as music directors. In the same advertisement, names of Meenakshi, Akhtaribai Faizabadi, Rajkumari, Amirbai Karnataki, and Khan Mastana appears as singers.

The review of the film was carried in May 1945 issue of FILMINDIA which, unfortunately was missing in the archives of the magazines. From the subsequent issues of FILMINDIA, I could sense that there was some animosity between producer Kamalabai Manglorekar and magazine’s editor Baburao Patel over the negative review of the film. In this context, I give below two samples of Baburao Patel’s ‘venomous’ pen:

If you need a strong dope, purchase a copy of ‘Panna Dai’ and screen it every night, an hour before the bed time. This picture is almost lethal in its effect and you might survive only two reels for years to come.

….That old Kamla is seriously thinking of going back to Sangli – back to her home town with old house memories. But Baburao Patel would not allow her to go till she had sprinkled her brain bits all over India and produced at least two more flops.

I could not locate any songs of the films on YT. However, two MP3 clips of film’s songs ‘fasl-e-gul aayi hamen yaad teri phir aane lagi’, a multiple version song sung by Zoharabai Ambalewaali ( happy) and Begum Akhtar (sad) were available on the website of Surjit Singh ji which I have converted into audio clips. The song is accredited to D N Madhok as the lyricist and Gyan Dutt as the music director. The lyrics for both versions are, more or less, the same except some minor changes. For example, the word ‘chain’ in happy version becomes ‘qaraar’ in sad version. However, they have been composed in different tunes.

Since the film’s print is not available, it is not known on whom this multiple version songs were picturised. I heard both the versions of the song for the first time a few days back and liked it immensely.
