Why am I producing REHANA (1946)?

This was the heading of a full page advertisement issued by the producer G A Thakur, the owner of Girdhar Bahar Productions in October 1945 issue of ‘Filmindia’ magazine. He was announcing his intention of producing ‘Rehana’ (1946), the story of which is based on the Middle-East background. I have paraphrased below the reasons given by the producer in the advertisement:

1. Hollywood producers who are far removed from the oriental culture have produced in a grand scale successful films like ‘The Thief of Baghdad’ and ‘Arabian Nights’. We can make such films in a more realistic way as we have historical monuments required for such type of films. As against this, Hollywood producers are require to create settings at a huge cost to get a feel of atmosphere of that period and the place.

2. Instead of creation of sets, I have selected locales for shooting which includes Jahangir’s Tomb at Bara Dari, Shalimar Garden, Old Fort, Shahi Masjid in Lahore. The war scenes will be picturised in Baluchistan in which over 1000 camels will be used.

3. In order that the actors for the main role of the Prince and Rehana, the begging girl have some semblance of Arab looking characters, I have selected Salim Raza as hero for the role of the Prince and Manorama as Rehana, the begging girl. In addition, Pran, Majnu and a bevy of beautiful girls have been selected.

4. I have selected a young director Harbans who was a screen-play writer and had assisted directors like Moti Gidwani, Nandlal Jaswantlal and R S Choudhary.

5. Since in such type of films, the costumes are one of the important segments of the period drama, I have selected Manubhai Ladva, a well-known costume designer. For Arabic dances, Choreographer Ganguly and for songs, Lal Mohammed has been selected.

I have been a regular reader of film magazines for more than 5 decades. But I do not recall having seen such type of advertisement of a film as above which I came across recently. The purpose of the advertisement seems to let the prospective audience know as to what efforts the producer is taking to make the film on the scale comparable to that of Hollywood. Probably, he expected that the audiences’ curiosity about the film would increase leading to a box office success. I have no idea as to how the film fared at the box office.

I guess, the producer may have kept his words especially about the shooting locales mentioned in the advertisement. This is borne out by the fact that the main actors like Salim Raza, Manorama, Pran and Majnu were based in Lahore at that time and also the music director, Qadeer Fareedi, lyricists Tufail Hoshiyarpuri/Aziz Kashmiri and the playback singers were Lahore-based.

As for the music director, the name of Lal Mohammed was indicated in the advertisement as the music director. But in reality, the music director was Qadir Fareedi. It may be noted that Lal Mohammed was assistant to his uncle Ghulam Haider who had already shifted to Bombay in 1943. In addition, Lal Mohammed also got two important assignments as an independent music director for the films ‘Omar Khaiyyam’ (1945) and ‘Tadbir’ (1946). And in both these films, he had got opportunity to compose songs for K L Saigal. I guess that this may have prompted Lal Mohammed not to accept the offer of composing the songs for ‘Rehana’ (1946).

The film has 12 songs written by Tufail Hoshiyarpuri (6) and Aziz Kahsmiri (5). The accreditation of remaining one song between these two lyricists is not known. I am presenting the first song ‘adaa adaa teri mast-e-sharaab ho’ sung by Dilshad Begum from this movie. The song is written by Aziz Kashmiri and is set to music by Qadir Fareedi.

In keeping with the Arabic background to the story line of the film, the producer had engaged a specialist dancer known by the name, Roofi. Luckily, I could get hold of a picture of Roofi from the film’s scene itself which I have included in the video clip of the song that I have made. Since the song composition is also of Arabic genre, I guess the song may have been picturised on Roofi.

Enjoy this song of Arabic genre with some traditional Pashtuni musical instruments used in the orchestration.

With this song, ‘Rehana’ (1946) makes its debut in the Blog.

Note: Not only the film, but the music director Qadir Fareedi also makes a debut on this blog with this song. On checking in the Geet Kosh, it is interesting to note that this is possibly the only one Hindi film that he has worked for.

Sadanand ji,

What a gem of a song. Not many people make the sojourn into the decade of the 40s, especially prior to 48-49 years. 30s is interesting because of the antiquity, and 50s of course is the golden era. You are doing a great job discovering and introducing to us such delightful gems such a this one. Goodness, what a melody and what rendition. Probably even the songwriter may not have thought of this arrangement. As I was checking the lyrics, the thought that came to my mind was, that Aziz Sb would have written the line as “Adaa Teri Mast e Sharaab Ho Ke Rahi”. And just listening to this line is such a lilting joy, as it is rendered

Adaa
Adaa Teri
Adaa
Adaa Teri
Mast e Sharaab Ho
Ho Ke Rahi

Wow, just wow. It is a sad thing that we do not have any more films by Qadir Fareedi except this one, as per the Geet Kosh. Ah yes, he also makes an artist’s debut on the blog with this song.

I have updated the lyrics, inserted the missing words and also some other corrections.

Thanks again for this continuing delightful journey through the sands of 1940s.

Sudhir Ji,

Thanks a lot for appreciating the song and making corrections in the lyrics. Your observations and corrections in the lyrics have made me to appreciate the song much more than what I had experienced when I first listened to the song.

What a imagery!

ye tere chehre ki
khud ki kitaab ho

Qadir Fareedi has also composed the songs for the film GULNAR (1950) along with Hansraj Bahl. I am surprised that GULNAR was released in 1950 as in the advertisement for REHANA (1946), it was indicated that the next film under the banner would be GULNAR. Probably, the film got stuck up due to the partition woes.
