“Ishaara” (1943) is a movie produced more than seven decades ago. Little information was known about this movie till our own beloved inhouse Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh came to our help. In addition, we also had late Khwaja Sultan Ahmad (brother of music director Khursheed Anwar) as our visitor in the past who shared some unknown facts about the movies. Here are the details of this movie as narrated to us by the two abovementioned knowledgeable experts:

“Ishaara” (1943) was produced by D R D Wadia. The story of the film was based on the English novel of Dewan Sharar titled “Gong of Shiva “. It was about allowing a Hindu widow to remarry, a controversial subject at that time. The movie was directed by J.K.Nanda and Music was by Khwaja Khursheed Anwar.

The film had a cast of Prithviraj Kapoor, Suraiya, Satish Batra, Swarnalata, K.N.Singh, Jagdish Sethi, Pratima, Vatsala etc.
The story was of 2 brothers, elder being the kind and guiding spirit to the younger bad and wayward brother who does not pay heed to the several Isharas of the elder one.

Ishara was the first hindi film of Khwaja Khursheed Anwar.

Khwaja Khurshid Anwar was a very respected and talented music director of his times. Roshan and Shankar were his chelas. Naushad had great opinion of him. Khwaja Khurshid Anwar was a Gold medal winner of Philosophy in his M.A.exam.

He migrated to Pakistan in 1952 and gave a new life to its film industry. He was awarded highest honour in Pakistan for his musical services. Even India awarded him the MMIM(mortal men-immortal melodies)award in 1983.
He died on 30-10-1984 at Lahore.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Vatsamal Kumthekar. Only the audio of this song is available but it is clear that the song was picturised on herself.

D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khursheed Anwar.

mere samjhaane se ae ae ae
mere dil ko tumhi samjhaana ho
dil ko tumhi samjhaana ho
ishq ka dard suhaana ho
ishq ka dard suhaana ho
ishq ka dard suhaana ho o
