Today’s song is from the film Paisa hi paisa-56. It is sung by Kishore kumar, Lata and Asha. The composer is Anil Biswas. The Lyricist was Majrooh Sultanpuri for all songs. It was a Mehboob Production film and it was directed by Mehrish.

Mehrish started his career from Sagar Movietone, as a worker, almost at the same time as Anil Biswas. He became Assistant Cameraman. Learning all the tricks of the job, he became chief Cameraman. He stuck to Mehboob Khan when the latter left National Studios and started his own Mehboob Production studio. Over a period he became assistant Director to Mehboob Khan from film Andaz-49. He continued as assistant Director in Aan -53 and Amar- 53. He even wrote the story of film Amar, which was anyway a remake of film Mala-41, directed by Jairaj. Naushad was Music Director for both the films-Mala as well as Amar. Actor Jayant did the same role in both versions.

In 1956, Mehboob gave Mehrish the opportunity to direct the film Paisa hi paisa. By the way, this was the only film Mehrish ever directed. After this film, he went back to his old job.

Anil Biswas joined Sagar Movietone in 1936 and Jagirdar-37 was his first film as a Music Director there. He became a very good friend of Mehboob. Together with Cinematographer Faredoon Irani, they made a close group of friends.In every film that Mehboob directed from 1937 to 1942 ( 8 films ), Anil Biswas was his Music Director. In 1940 Sagar staff shifted to National and in 1942, National Studios was to be closed. All employees, including Mehboob, Faredoon and Ail Biswas were worried about their future. In that period, Anil Biswas got an offer first from Ranjit Studios, but he rejected it as his friends did not get offers. Then he got an invitation from Bombay Talkies for Rs. 2500 rupees pm as salary. This was too lucrative to reject. Though his friends were jobless, Anil Biswas joined Bombay Talkies.

Mehboob Khan was upset that Anil Biswas deserted his friends for personal gain. Their relations soured and thereafter Mehboob Khan never ever took Anil Biswas as a Music Director for films of his company. After establishing his own Mehboob Productions, he did not invite Anil Biswas. Mehboob Khan prospered and teamed up with Naushad as his Music Director from the film Anmol Ghadi-46 onwards.

By 1954, Anil Biswas broke up with his first wife Ashalata He divorced her,but lost everything that he had to her in settlement for freedom. He was not getting any films. For survival he unsuccessfully tried doing Truck business. Seeing his condition, Mehboob offered him the contract for his Canteen,on request from Anil Biswas. That too failed miserably. Mehboob Khan was still bitter him and he did not offer him any film even then.

When Mehboob Productions planned film ‘Paisa hi paisa ‘-56, Mehrish was made the Director. Being a great fan of Anil Biswas, he asked Mehboob’s permission to call Anil Biswas as its Music Director. As one who believed in work ethics, Mehboob very reluctantly gave permission to Mehrish, but went on a Foreign trip to avoid meeting Anil Biswas.

Film ‘Paisa hi Paisa’was a comedy film, with Kishore kumar, Mala Sinha,Shakeela, Shyam kumar, Murad,Mukeri,Kumud Tripathi etc etc.

Basically Anil Biswas specialised in Tragedy or Serious films. Comedy film was not in his comfort zone, but his financial condition forced him to bow to the circumstances. Being a talented composer, he did well in this too, though the film bombed at the Box office. He was passing through a bad patch. There were rumours in the market that he was finished. Due to this he had lost the film ‘Basant bahar’to Shankar Jaikishan because distributors refused to financed this movie if he was to be signed up as the Music Director. Even S.Mukherjee of Filmistan rejected all his tunes calling him a spent force !

After 1956, except Pardesi-57, Char dil char rahen-59, and Sautela Bhai-62, he got only B and C grade films like Supreman ki wapsi or Jalti Nishani etc. This was also the time when Lata Mangeshkar was unhappy with him. She was a good friend of Ashalata and further she did not like Anil Biswas promoting Meena Kapoor as a singer. Overall, he no longer had time in his favour and his days in the fil industry were numbered.

Anil Biswas never liked Rafi’s voice or his singing style. He is on record having said that Rafi’s voice was “Sadak chhap” i.e. fit for singing on road. That is why, he used Rafi rarely though in those days even when Rafi had become the lead singer of most composers,. Rafi’s first song with Anil Biswas was in the film ‘Heer’-56. Rafi sang in a few other films of Anil Biswas as well like Paisa hi paisa-56, Ahiman-57 and Sanskar-58.

Film Paisa hi paisa-56 was an out and out a Kishore Kumar film. During the period 1953 to1965 Kishore Kumar was in great demand. In this period he did 55 films out of his total 91 released films. In his films, he, his songs and his comedy antics were main. Producers never bothered about a strong story base in his films.In any case, his audience wanted to see and hear him, being least bothered about histrionics or literary value of the film story etc. Stories were written for his films to give full scope to his antics. The story of film Paisa hi Paisa-56 was….

Kishore (kishor kumar) is the only son of his miser father. Though very rich, his father always looked for making extra money by hook or crook. He has no scruples in his pursuit of money. When Kishore grew up enough for marriage, his father wanted him to marry some rich girl, so that he gets a fat dowry and all his property.

However Kishore’s nature is different. He is a happy, jolly fellow. Fed up of father’s pestering he runs away from home, meets Mala (Mala sinha) and they dutifully fall in love. However Mala would marry him only if both families give their consent. Kishore was sure that his father would never agree for this marriage.

Kishore than plans a scheme, with the help of his friends. He makes his father believe that Mala is daughter of of a very rich person and that fat dowry would be given. At the time of marriage, a close bag is given to his father. When he is about to open the bag, Police arrives and arrests the father for taking Dowry which is illegel. He is panicky and to get out of this mess, he agrees to the marriage, without Dowry !

There were 10 songs in this film. 3 songs from the film are already covered in the blog. Today’s song is a long song of 6 minutes 10 seconds approximately. it is in 2 parts which run one after another. Let us enjoy this Kishore song by Anil Biswas….
