The song under discussion today is from film ‘Sharada’, one of the hit films of 1957. What a year 1957 was ! In the Golden Era of the Hindi Film Music, the year 1957 would go down as the best year, which provided everlasting songs from musical films. The deluge of excellent songs was such that music lovers not only enjoyed the heavy downpour, but loved every piece of Music.

Musical films like, ‘Begunah’, ‘Bhabhi’, ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’, ‘Do Aankhen Baara Haath’, ‘Ek Gaon Ki Kahani’, ‘Ek Jhalak’, ‘Kathputli’, ‘Miss Mary’, ‘Mother India’, ‘Mr. X’, ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’, ‘Naya Daur’, ‘Paying Guest’, ‘Pyaasa’, ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ and many more. Add to this, the hit films of C Ramchandra in 1957 – ‘Baarish’, ‘Sharada’, ‘Nausherwan e Adil’, ‘Asha’ and ‘Talash’. What more one would want?

‘Sharada’ was made by Prasad Productions and directed by its owner himself LV Prasad or Akkineni Lakshmi Vara Prasad Rao, to be precise. Yes, he is the same person who has etched his name in the annals of film history of India, as the only man who had acted in the first talkie films of 3 different Languages ! LV Prasad acted in ‘Aalam Ara’ (1931) (Hindi), ‘Kalidasa’ (1931) (Tamil), and ‘Bhakta Prahlada’ (1932) (Telugu). All these films were made in Bombay.

From a very humble and struggling beginning, LV Prasad (17-1-1908 to 22-6-1994), went on to become one of the most successful film producers of India. He not only built an empire of film related industries, but he also headed many prestigious organisations like, International Film Festivals and International Jury Board, Film Chamber, Film Censor Board, Studio Owners’ Council etc. He was honoured with Phalke Award in 1982, Udyog Patra award in 1980, Kala Tapaswi award in 1983, Andhra Ratna Award etc. There was a Postage stamp issued in his honour in 2006.

‘Sharada’ was a remake of the original Tamil film ‘Edhir Paradhathu’ (1955). Its Telugu remake was ‘Ilavelpu’ (1956) and a Malayalam edition came a little later as ‘Nitya Kanyaka’ – in 1963. In the original Tamil film, the lead pair was Sivaji Ganeshan and Padmini, which was a very popular pair in many Tamil films during those days. The film became a runaway hit. There is an interesting anecdote about the shooting of this Tamil film. There is a scene in the film, in which Padmini has to slap Sivaji Ganesan. While enacting this scene Padmini got into the role so much that not only she was very angry but went on slapping Sivaji one after another, even after Director was shouting CUT CUT several times. Finally, Sivaji Ganesan made the hysterical Padmini lie down and brought her to normalcy !

The Telugu version also became very popular. An interesting point about the Telugu remake was that out of its 9 songs, 6 songs had popular Hindi film song tunes. For example, a Telugu song of the film, ‘Anna Anna Vinnava’ was a copy of the tune of the popular Ravi song “Chandamama Door Ke” from film Vachan (1955).

The Hindi remake ‘Sharada’, was very cleverly released in the month of December 1957 in Bombay and later in all other centres. By that time, all other musical films of 1957 were already seen and heard by the public. This naturally gave extra space to the music of Sharada to become popular. Such tactics could come only from Madras producers.

The story and screenplay was by the famous writer/director CV Sridhar, who later on gave many tear jerkers like ‘Dil Ek Mandir’ (1963). In the original Tamil film as well as the Telugu and Malayalam remakes, it was the hero’s father who dies in the film, to make way for the lovers, but in the Hindi remake, the heroine was made to die, only because the role was done by the Tragedy Queen Meena Kumari ! Poor Meena Kumari, she had only tragedies in her reel and real lives.

‘Sharada’ was a successful film not only on the Box office, but it also won 3 Film Fare Awards. Raj Mehra won his only award for the best supporting actor, Shyama won it for best supporting actress and Shivaji Awadhoot won it for Best Editing. The cast of the film was Meena Kumari, Raj kapoor, Raj Mehra, Shyama, Gope, Manorama, Om Prakash, Agha etc. The story of the film is,

Chiranjeev (Raj Kapoor) lives a wealthy lifestyle along with his father, Kashiram (Raj Mehra), and three siblings: two sisters, one of whom is dumb, and a younger brother. While on a trip, his friend, Mohan (Om Prakash), falls ill due to alcohol, and gets treated at an ashram. This is where Chiranjeev meets with an employee, Sharada (Meena Kumari), who lives a poor lifestyle with her father, Ram Sharan. Chiranjeev and Sharada fall in love with each other, and he promises to get his father’s permission and return to get married to her.

On his way home he has an accident, and though he does survive after being treated by tribal people, he returns to the Ashram several days later and is informed that Sharada is now married to a wealthy and much older man. Heart-broken and devastated, Chiranjeev returns home only to get another shock: the male Sharada has married is none other than his very own father. Chiranjeev tries to build same relations again with her, but she slaps him and warns that she is now his mother.

Depressed and deeply frustrated, he takes to alcohol in a big way. Sharada talks him out of this, he repents and on her insistence, marries Chanchal (Shyama), who comes from a reputed family background. Things then get complicated when Chanchal finds that her husband and his stepmother had been in love before and may not have got over their feelings for each other.

Fed up with everyday tiffs with Chanchal, he leaves the house and lives like a beggar. One day he is found by his step mother and father, who bring him home. Chanchal realises her mistake and repents. Meena Kumari believes that she must sacrifice for his welfare and family’s well being. She dies in the arms of her son, Chiranjeev. (641)

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle, Joe Alvaris, Kamala Shrivastav and chorus. I have no definite information about Joe (he could be Johnny, C Ramchandra’s assistant in this film), or Kamla Shrivastav (she could be a singer from Lucknow who sang on AIR, and later retired as a teacher from Bhatkhande Music school, Lucknow). Here is the song video…
