Today’s song is from the film Hatimtai-56.

Among older generations, reading books, novels etc, other than the school Text books, was considered a gateway to general knowledge and an aid to develop an impressive personality. As times changed, I think this habit has diminished with every new generation and today I find that students do not read anything ( not even Newspapers-except sports and films section) other than school or college syllabus and Guide books. Their general knowledge is below par in most cases. I do not blame them, because the education system in our country has been modelled on such lines that students will only read what brings them more marks. Nothing else. They have no time left for general reading due to college and classes. Additionally parents too encourage only this – not general reading…out of helplessness ! Of course their intelligence and skills have not diminished but have different openings suitable for today’s life-struggle.

The point is what we have read in our younger days as a child and teenager,is still in our memory- the exciting world of Arabian Nights, Gulliver, Time machine, Chandamama and stories from Mythology. Later on Crime and Detective stories and for Girls-Mills and Boon ! The marvellous world of Alladin and Alibaba was so enchanting ! One of these Arabian Night stories was that of HATIMTAI.

Initially,I had got confused with this name, because Tai in Marathi means elder sister or Didi, but soon it was clear that Hatimtai was very much a Male. Like Alladin and Alibaba, Hatimtai also attracted Hindi film makers. Right from the beginning of the Talkie films in 1932, films were made on the exploits and adventures of Hatimtai, to solve the 7 Sawaals or questions asked by Husn Bano !

In 1933, 4 films-as a series- in the same year were made in the name of Hatimtai-Part I, Part II, Part III and Part IV. These were separate films and adventures for those 7 questions were divided in these 4 parts. All the 4 films had One Hero-Marutirao Pehelwan. He was a tall and handsome person. He is the same actor who did the Title role of the Saint Narsi Mehta, in the First ever Gujarati Talkie film of the same name-Narsi Mehta. It was made by Sagar Movietone.

All the 4 films were Directed by G.R.Sethi- who also wrote all the 49 songs of these all films, which were tuned by composer Madholal Master. Hatimtai Part I has also the honour of having India’s First “Anokhe Bol ” song. The words of this song were “Donga Donga Dam Dam Daka, Adam,Boka Masnam Maka “. marutirao pehelwan married his co-star of many films- Tara ( she was not in Hatimtai). Tara was famous Dancer Sitara Devi’s sister. The world Famous Dancer Gopi Krishna was their son.

Films with the name Hatimtai were made in 1933,1947,1956 and 1990.
Hatimtai-7 sawaal in 1971
Hatimtai ka beta in 1945,1956 and 1965
Hatimtai ki Beti in 1940 and 1955

The original story of Hatim tai in Arabian Nights, never mentioned about his son or daughter, but our Hindi film makers are very creative and original. Their “Story Departments “produced his Son and Daughter form their Magic Sac- just like the sons,daughters and other close relatives were invented for Alibaba, Alladin, Gulliver, Sindbad, Tarzan and Zimbo ! There was even a Movie with the Title ”Sindbad, Alladin and Alibaba ” in 1965 !!

Today’s film Hatimtai-56 was made by Homi Wadia, under his Basant pictures banner. He was also the Director of this film. Homi Wadia is the same person who married Fearless Nadia, when she was 51 year old !

S.N.Tripathi was the composer of this Fantasy film He had also acted in the film. As such he was the favourite of Wadia Brothers. He had done the role of Hanuman in their popular film “Shri Rambhakta Hanuman “, besides composing the Music and also singing few songs. The Mythological films of Wadia Brothers were very popular in Middle East and in Pakistan area-before Partition. However, after the Partition, there was resistance for the Hindu Religious films in Muslim countries. Homi Wadia changed the Title of the film “Shri Rambhakta Hanuman ” to “udata Bandar ” ( उडता बंदर ), dubbed it in Urdu and exported the same film to Pakistan and the Middle East. It was a roaring success there !

The film Hatimtai-56 had 9 songs. It had some very good songs. One of the most popular songs of the times was one sung by Mohd. Rafi- “Parwar Digar E Alam, tera hi hai sahara . This song can be called a Cult song. It was extremely popular among devout Muslims. Most Irani hotels in India used to start their day with this song played loudly. Akhtar Romani had written this song, making a Debut in Hindi films. This was his only song in the film and it achieved unprecedented fame.

Actor Jairaj had done the main role of Hatimtai. He hailed from Hyderabad State. When this film was being shown in Hyderabad, Nawab Samsher Jung Bahadur of Hyderabad Riyasat was curious to see his film, with family and others. The film was screened in Zamrrud mahal Talkies on Abids Road in Hyderabad. Ana entire show was booked for him. The Nawab arrived to see the film, with his Zanana and family. When the song “Parvar Digar E Alam” started, he was simply mesmerised and he made the operator to play this song six times ! Next day, local papers carried this story and hordes of people rushed to see the film. The film celebrated Silver jubilee there !

Other songs were sung by Asha Bhonsle, Shamshad Begum, Suman Kalyanpur and Mubarak Begum. Today’s song “Uyi amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi” was a fun song sung by comedy actor Sheikh, in a Drag dress, The song and dance video of this song is very funny indeed.

Sheikh was a Comedy actor in the 40s,50s and the 60s. He has acted in 170 films, as per Muvyz stats. He sang 10 songs in 7 films as per HFGK (Daulat ki duniya-47, Fifty Fifty-UR, Nakli Baap-49, Jiya Raja-49, Dushman-50, Hatimtai-56 and Naagmani-57).

He was essentially a B and C grade films comedian, so his name is not known to most people. Sanjeev Narvekar’s book, “Eena meena deeka” gives very little information about him. In his hey-days, he was popular in a class of people who were regulars of stunt,fantasy and action films. He was a fixture in almost all Wadia films. He was the main lip syncer in the iconic qawwaali, “Humen to loot liya milke husnwalon ne” from film Al Hilal-58. This song featured on this Blog as its 5000th song, with a combined write up of Raja ji, Sudhir ji and Atul ji. Probably he is the only actor to get this honour in the blog!

He had directed two films, Shahnaaz-48 and Mr.Toofan-63. He started his career in Hindi films with Pakke badmash-39. Before that he had acted in a Marathi film “Netaji palkar-39″by Bhalji Pendharkar (info from CITWF). His last film was Aadamkhor-85. No information is available on his life anywhere.

I will not repeat the film story because I had given it in 2011 in comments of another song from this film. Enjoy this song video by Sheikh, who makes his Debut as a Singer on this Blog.


Song-Uyi amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi(Hatimtai)(1956) Singer-Sheikh, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-S N Tripathi

Lyrics

nakhre karti darti darti
gayi thhi main baazaar
mujhe akeli dekh ke ae
jam gaye log hazaar
to aa gaya mujhe bukhaaaar
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi
baazaar gayi thhi main baazaar gayi thhi
baazaar gayi thhi main baazaar gayi thhi
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi

bal khaati gaati ithlaati laane gayi khazooren
bal khaati gaati ithlaati laane gayi khazooren
sharam ke maare mar gayi
mujhko duniya waale ghooren
sharam ke maare mar gayi
mujhko duniya waale ghooren
main to ban ke badi hoshiyaar gayi thhi
main to ban ke badi hoshiyaar gayi thhi
haay ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi

aage badhi to ek halwaayi
paka raha thha halwa
aage badhi to ek halwaayi
paka raha thha halwa
halwaayi ka halwa jal gaya
dekh ke mera jalwa
haaye dekh ke mera jalwa
main to ghoonghat mein le ke angaar gayi thhi
main to ghoonghat mein le ke angaar gayi thhi
haay
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi

chauraahe ke mod pe mujhko
mil gaya ek sharaabi
beedi phenk ek bola haaye haaye
kahaan chali o bhaabhi
are kidhar chali o bhaabhi
chauraahe ke mod pe mujhko
mil gaya ek sharabi
beedi phenk ek bola haaye haaye
kahaan chali o bhaabhi
haay kahaan chali o bhaabhi
kaahe aankhon mein leke khumaar gayi thhi
kahe aankhon mein leke khumaar gayi thhi
hay ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi

dekh ke mujhko ladne lag gaye
chhumam jumman kalwa
dekh ke mujhko ladne lag gaye
chhumam jumman kalwa
meri khaatir chaaku chal gaye
shahar mein ho gaya balwa
haaye shahar mein ho gaya balwa
kaahe kar ke main ghar se singaar gayi thhi
kaahe kar ke main ghar se singaar gayi thhi
haay ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi
baazaar gayi thhi main baazaar gayi thhi
baazaar gayi thhi main baazaar gayi thhi
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi
ui amma main kaahe ko baazaar gayi thhi

He was also known as Mister Shekh.
Also unchi aedi walo ne, katte katte balo ne
dil mera khich liya tedhi tirchi chalo ne
from Bedard Zamana Kya Jaane

This song is NOT sung by Sheikh. It is sung by Rafi and Geeta Dutt.Please check carefully.

Sheikh has lip synched the song on screen.

Right

There were 4 Hatimtai-1933>>i, ii, iii, iv and also Sakhi Hatim-1955

Sakhi Hatim-55 had nothing to do with the story of Hatimtai. It was an action film.
-AD

Regret repeat info about 1933.
