Wishing our Dear Atul ji, a very Happy Birthday. May this day be celebrated on this blog many, many, many more times.

Today’s song is from film ‘Do Behnen’ (1959). After KA Abbas’s film ‘Anhonee’ (1952), the attention of film makers was drawn to the theme of 2 sisters of same looks but different natures. Such themes provided a scope for double role. ‘Do Behnen’ (1959) was also inspired by this theme.

This reminds me of an early film based on this theme. The film was ‘ Muqaabla ‘ (1942). Fearless Nadia was the heroine and did the double role of both the good and bad sisters. It was very funny to see Nadia in a saree and doing pooja etc. It was funnier to listen to her broken, anglicised pure Hindi dialogues. Normally, in Nadia’s films, her dialogues used to be minimum – actions spoke for her. But ‘Muqaabla’ was such a story that dialogues were a must.

‘Do Behnen’ was a film in which Shyama had a double role. The other cast of the film was Rajendra Kumar, Chand Usmani, Ram Mohan, Tiwari, SK Prem, Mumtaz Begum etc. It was produced by Kailash Kapoor, JP Sehgal and Prakash Seth. The film was directed by Kedar Kapoor (2-9-1927 to 5-6-1987), who directed 35 films from 1954 to 1983. He was called Dara Singh expert, as he had directed 10 Dara Singh movies in the 1960s. Actress Madhu Kapoor is his daughter.

Chand Usmani was one of those actresses, who were good in acting but poor in good luck ! Actresses like Farida Jalal, Tabassum, Shubha Khote, Nazima, Zahira, Zahida, Yashodhara Katju and many more fall in this category. These actresses never made it to the regular heroine roles in A grade films, more than few films. They had some beginner’s luck but that was the end. They continued in side roles only.

Chand Usmani  was born in Agra, UP, and came to limelight by participating in ‘Kardar-Kolynos-Teresa Contest’ in 1949. She felt surprised when she was selected  for the contest and was overjoyed when she won the second spot in the finals. She acted as the female lead of ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ directed by Mahesh Kaul in 1953 opposite Shammi Kapoor. It was the debut film of Shammi Kapoor also.

Chand Usmani became an established actress later on, but she got only secondary roles which she performed always nicely. Gradually she accepted supporting roles, character roles, mother roles etc. She got Filmfare Best Supporting actress award for her portrayal of the character as ‘Champa’ in the 1970 film ‘Pehchan’. She acted in films of all prominent actors of that period.

In 1957, in the film ‘Naya Daur’ directed by BR Chopra, and in which Dilip Kumar-Vyjayantimal were the main pair, Chand Usmani acted as sister of the hero Dilip Kumar’s character ‘Shankar’. In the historical film ‘Samrat Pritviraj Chauvan’ (1959) she acted in the role of Rajkumari. ‘Prem Patra’ (1962) was a well noted film directed by Bimal Roy in 1962. A medical College student Arun Kumar Mathur (Shashi Kapoor) has a misunderstanding over a love letter and the consequences were the theme of the film. Sadhna was the heroine and Chand Usmani acted in the supporting role as ‘Sumitra’.

Biswajeet, Saira Banu, Jayant, Sajjan, Nazima, Chand Usmani etc. were the star cast of ‘April Fool’ (1964) directed by Subodh Mukherjee. This film pointed to the fact that sometimes even practical jokes done for just fun can also lead to unexpected serious problems.

In the super hit film ‘Khilona’ in which Sanjeev Kumar acted in leading role in 1970, Chand Usmani  acted as the character Laxmi Singh.  In the film ‘Ujala Hi Ujala’ (1974),  she portrayed mother’s role and acted as mother of Yogita Bali’s character Anuradha. She presented excellent acting skill  along with Shabana Azmi in the 1976 classic movie ‘Kadambari’. In the 1977 super hit movie of Manmohan Desai ‘Parvarish’ in which Amitabh Bachchan, Shammi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Vinod Khanna, Amjad Khan, Kader Khan etc acted, Chand Usmani acted skilfully as the mother of Neetu and Shabu (Neetu Singh and Shabana Azmi). She had well noted character role in another super hit film of Amitabh Bachchan-Neetu Singh pair ‘Yaarana’ in 1981 and yet another film ‘Pukar’ (1983) in which Amitabh Bachchan and Zeenat Aman were the main pair. She acted as mother of Suraj (Raj Babbar) in the film ‘Zakhmi Aurat’ (1988).

Chand Usmani passed away in 1989 at Mumbai.

There was one more name in the cast of this film – Ram Mohan. Actors like him are seen in many films, but their names are not known to many. He is the male version of actresses like Farida Jalal, in getting the lead roles. Good in acting but low in good luck !

Ram Mohan Sharma – a young, handsome lad from Ambala. Born in Ambala 0n 2-11-1929, Ram Mohan Sharma was a graduate (BA) and had come to Bombay in 1945 in search of a career in cinema. The youngster, who was in his early twenties, with fair colour, curly hair and sharp features, had approached Jagdish Sethi to get work in movies as an actor. The latter found him sincere and gave him a supporting role in ‘Jaggu’ (1952), which he was to make. The movie had very good music, scored by Hansraj Behl and it had moderate success, when released. Later, Ram Mohan got small roles in few movies in 1954, Sethi Sahab cast him in the romantic role opposite Shyama in ‘Pensioner’ (1954). The movie did not do well and it was the end of Ram Mohan’s career as hero.

Life goes on and he decided to accept any role offered to him and soon he was a known name in the film circle. In ‘Do Behnen’,which had Shyama in double role, Ram Mohan enacted the role of a villain, which gave his career a big boost as bad man . Later he came in touch with Sunil Dutt and Nargis, and forged a permanent friendship with them. Although Ram Mohan mostly got roles of tough characters, but inside he was soft hearted. He was a member of Film Artists Association. He requested Sunil Dutt Ji who was feeling depressed after Nargis Ji passed away, to help the ‘Have Nots’ of film industry.

Virtually an encyclopaedia of film industry, Ram Mohan knew every technician, junior artists as well as old and forgotten artists, who needed help. Whenever they both were free, they used to visit the ailing artists in hospital or their residences, to give them moral as well as financial support. Rajan Haksar was in a charity hospital, after failure of his kidneys. Both benevolent persons visited the hapless artist to boost his spirit. Ram Mohan was confidant of Asha Parekh, the kind hearted lady who was president of the Artists Association and they together helped many artists, who were in dire need of assistance.

Ram Mohan was vice president of CINTAA ( Cine and TV Artists Association) for 4 years and secretary for 6 years. Ram Mohan had a very good reputation every where and when he came to know about the miserable condition of AK Hangal, he met a political leader and arranged the financial help through Maharashtra Govt, on a regular basis. At the time of bereavement, he made it a point to help the family till all religious formalities were over. Every one in the film industry use to address him as Ram Mohan Ji ,to show their genuine respect for him.

In his career of more than five decades, Ram Mohan appeared in more than 250 movies (the number varies from 240 to 277), mostly in negative roles. He did not believe in self publicity and did his philanthropic work quietly. Ram Mohan was keeping indifferent health when his pillar of strength, his life partner passed away. Ram Mohan also followed suit and breathed his last six months later on 6th December 2015 .

Ram Mohan had 3 sons and 1 daughter, all very well settled in life. He will always be gratefully remembered by thousands of anonymous film artists who were helped by him. His memories will be cherished by his admirers, who loved his work on and off the screen. Truly, to find people like him, in this era is a rarity. Let us hope his selfless work will inspire other persons connected with the film industry to help their less fortunate colleagues and the tradition of “वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम” (“vasudhaiv kutumbakam“) set by him will continue. He found an admirer in Gulzar Sahab, who always referred him as Ram Mohan Ji. Please see the credit titles of film ‘Ijaazat’, where his name is listed as Ram Mohan ji. (Thanks to ‘Beete Huye Din’, and Shri MN Sardana ji, for some of the information included in the bio sketch above).

The film ‘Do Behnen’ was not on fire at the box office. Such films do average business. Double roles, in my opinion, help the film recover the costs and ensure that there are no losses. The story of this film was repeated in so many films, that after interval, almost every scene must be predictable. There is a famous saying in the film industry all over the world that there are only 36 stories in the world. All film stories are different versions and adaptations of one of these only.

The story of the film was written by eminent writer Pt. Mukhram Sharma (29-5-1909 to 25-4-2000), the most famous writer of stories with social themes in the 1950s. Pt Mukhram Sharma had a long association with BR Chopra. He had written stories for many of his hit films. Some of his notable films are ‘Ek Hi Raasta’, ‘Aulaad’, ‘Sadhna’ and ‘Dhool Ka Phool’. His other hit films include ‘Santaan’, ‘Do Kaliyan’, ‘Jeene Ki Raa’h, ‘Raja Aur Rank’, ‘Dadi Maa’, ‘Gharana’ and ‘Talaaq’. Pt. Sharma had won Filmfare awards for ‘Sadhna’, ‘Vachan’ and ‘Aulaad’. He was also honoured with the Sangeet Natak Academy Award in 1961.

Before coming to Bombay, he was a teacher in Meerut. In 1939, he came to Bombay, but could not get any job. He moved to Poona and joined Prabhat films as a tutor for Marathi and Hindi. In Poona, he married a Marathi actress Shanta Mujumdar. He was with Marathi films till 1952, then he came to Bombay and got the first Filmfare award for best story for his film ‘Aulaad’ (1954). After that, there was no looking back. After winning Filmfare awards 3 times, Academy Award and Lifetime achievement Zee award, Pt. Sharma retired in 1980 and went back to Meerut.

The story of ‘Do Behnen’ is summarized below.

Bombay-based look-alike twin sisters, Vasanti and Malti (roles played by Shyama), live a wealthy lifestyle with their parents. Their father, Raghunath (SK Prem), arranges devout Vasanti’s marriage with Ramesh (Rajendra Kumar), who lives with his widower father, a doctor (Tiwari), and a sister, Rekha (Chand Usmani). After the wedding, Raghunath is shocked to find Malti singing and dancing with a male named Anokhe (Ram Mohan) in a nightclub. He brings her home, admonishes her severely and forbids her to leave the home. In response, she elopes with Anokhe, travels to Poona and books a room in Paramount Hotel. Shortly thereafter Anokhe shows his true colors, squanders her money, starts drinking, and frequenting prostitutes. He then takes her jewellery and walks out of her life. In order to recover the rent, the hotel manager contacts the Mathurs. Vasanti and her mother (Mumtaz Begum) attend to take Malti back home. While traveling home, the train meets with an accident and Vasanti passes away. Her mother tells everyone that it is Malti who has passed away, and compels Malti to take over as Vasanti, which she does reluctantly.

After going to her house, she finds it very difficult to adjust to the sati savitri type behaviour. However, slowly  she starts loving the new house and also her husband. Ramesh many times gets puzzled with her behaviour, but ignores.

Finally the truth is out one day, but by that time Ramesh starts liking her and so a new Malti takes over her dead sister’s place officially. (636)

The film has 7 songs, all written by Kavi Pradeep. This is the fourth song to be discussed on our blog from this film. The music director is Vasant Desai. Pradeep had never teemed up with Desai. In 1959, their first film was ‘School Master’ (1959), made in Madras by BR Panthulu and then the second and the last film was ‘Do Behnen’. Vasant Desai never preferred Pradeep, because 1) he wanted at least one song for him to sing  and 2) he would insist for the tunes that he composed himself for his lyrics. This was precisely the reason why many  composers like Naushad always kept away from Pradeep, unless compelled. In ‘School Master’ as well as ‘Do Behnen’, Pradeep had one song each to sing.

Today’s song is sung by Lata, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Mahendra Kapoor has no lines to sing, only two short aalaps (lip synched on screen by Ram Mohan). The song is a lovely melody. It is picturized on Chand Usmani, Ram Mohan and their friends, having a frolic in boats in a lake. Enjoy…..

Thanks Arun ji
for information about Ram Mohan ji, Chand Usmani,Pt.Mukhram Sharma,Pradeep

In fact I just got a glimpse of Ram mohanji on T.v. in Madhuri Dixit`s movie Koyla(1997)in a old man`s role, and under the wrong impression that He is alive,…………

Thanks for life sketches of Chand Usmani & RamMohan.
I was not aware Ram Mohan passed away.
Unlike vast majority, I remembered Rammohan as a character actor. One vivid memory of Ram mohan is as the train driver singing that novel song ‘Dhanno ki aankon me…’ from ‘Kitab’

Thnx Arunkumar Saheb 4 such an informative article.
Njoyed reading each and every paragraph.
I may not b wrong if I compare u 2 great critic – reviewer Isaq Mujawar ji.
Arunji , u have correctly mentioned names of some heroines who did not get a chance 2 show their acting talent.Zeb Rehman, Babita and even Saira Bano’s talents were not utilised.
Bollywood didn’t use 50% of talent of Lalita Pawar and Sharmila Tagore also.It is our – viewer’s bad luck,one shud say.
I think ” vasudev kutumbakam” shud b “vasudhaiva kutumbakam”meaning vasudha ,that is,the whole earth is like one kutumba – family,which Ramkumar Ji practised in his whole life.
I apologize 4 having corrected ur word ” vasudev”.
Hope u will forgive my oversmartness.
Thnx once again.
Regards from Pramod Godbole.

Dear Godbole ji,

The error is mine and not Arun ji’s. He had sent the correct spellings, but I made an incorrect edit.

The said text in the article is now corrected.

Rgds
Sudhir

Dear Sudhir Bhai ,
So nice of u that u have promptly taken action of correcting that word.Not only that , u open heartedly admitted ur spelling error.
Shayad Ye duniya SudhirJi aur Arun Ji jaise ,what we say in Marathi “NIRMAL”,logo ki wajah se hi tiki huee hai.
Thnx once again.
With regards,
Pramod Godbole.

Pramod Godbole ji,
Thanks for your kind words and comments.
I am a very big fan of Isak Mujawar ji,whom I had the fortune to meet personally. May be I learnt my style of minute details from him. If I sound like him, it is my honour, I would say.
Thanks again.
-AD

Respected Arunkumar Ji,
I apologize once again 4 that ” vasudev” and “vasudhaiv”confusion.
From comment of our SudhirJi , I came 2 know the whole thing.
Arunkumar Ji, I too have made a mistake by writing RamkumarJi in place of Rammohan Ji.
I am sorry 4 my writing mistake .
Expect many more posts from the “Isak Mujawar ” of our site !
With regards ,
Pramod Godbole.

What a pleasant song this is! Needless to mention, never heard it before – so another discovery for me. 🙂
Thanks, Arunji, for yet another very informative post.
I remember Ram Mohan ji from Mere Huzoor, where he plays the main villain, driving Jeetendra astray. Of course he has acted in several films but this is the one I remember him most vividly in.
I remember Chand Usmani in Baap re Baap (1955) with Kishore. I saw the film a couple of years ago, just for the song “piya piya piya” (one of my favourites in the fun category).
Like you say, some actors/actresses were just not lucky enough to make it big. Not that they were not talented enough or didn’t work hard enough.
