Today’s song is from film Jailor-1958. This film from Minerva Movietone was a remake of its own film of the same name, made in 1938. This is a psychological melodrama, describing how a perfectly normal person becomes a bad one and due to circumstances becomes good again. There are shadows of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in this film.

Robert Louise Stevenson’s novel of 1886, ” The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde ” was first made into a silent film in 1920, followed by a Talkie films in 1931, 1941, and as recent as 2006, in Hollywood. The 1931 film must have obviously inspired the writers of this film in 1938- Kamaal Amrohi and Ameer Haider. The screenplay was by J.K.Nanda and music was composed by Mir Saheb.

For the 1958 edition, the writers’ team continued, wih addition of O.P.Dutta for new dialogues. Madan Mohan composed its music. Sohrab Modi, of course, was the Director and the Hero in both editions of the film. Now he was joined by Kamini Kaushal, Geeta Bali, Abhi Bhattacharya, Nana Palshikar, Rajkumar khatri etc etc.

The film was not received with enthusisam. The role of Sohrab Modi, as the Jailor was not at all accepted by the audience. The role left many questions unanswered- like whether such changes can occur in a person at all or how can someone go to such extreme cruelty etc. Afterall it was a movie. Sohrab Modi excelled in Historical films. Social or family dramas were not a cup of his tea, was established by this film. It is still a wonder, why Modi chose this film for a remake over his many other successful films, for example Pukar-1939 ?

Madan Mohan’s sweet music was a redeeming factor and it did soothe the nerves of the audience after seeing Modi’s performance in this film. The story of the film was….

Dilip (Sohrab Modi) is a good natured kind hearted Jailor. He has a good looking wife Kanwal (Kamini Kaushal) and a doting girl child- Bali (Daisy Irani). Kanwal likes to enjoy modern life , like attending clubs etc, which Dilip does not like. Kanwal does not like her husband. She contacts her ex-lover Dr. Ramesh and both elope. She is not worried about her child also. This shock changes the life of Dilip and he becomes cruel, hot tempered and a nasty person, as if to avenge the world for what happened to him.

Kanwal and her lover meet with an accident. Ramesh loses his sight and Kanwal’s face is badly injured. When Dilip learns about her accident, he brings a repentant Kanwal back home. However he locks her in a room and tortures her, taunts her and tries to take revenge She is not allowed to meet her daughter, who is told that her mother has died. Once the daughter Bali falls sick, but Dilip does not allow Kanwal to tend her daughter also. frustrated and sad Kanwal commits suicide. Due to illness the daughter also dies.

This is another shock for Dilip, but it changes him to his old good nature. he becomes more kind, loving and helpful to others. one of his ex-convicts Prem (Rajkumar Khatri) kills the village rowdy when he tries to trouble his blind sister Chhaya(Geeta Bali) In the jail, Prem requests Dilip to look after his sister. Dilip meets and helps her. He starts loving Chhaaya. Unknown to him , Dr. Ramesh, now blind, comes to the same temple in which Chhaaya lives. they get to know each others and develop love.

When Dilip comes to know about their love, he spends his savings and helps both blind people to get operated upon. They regain sight. Dilip ensures that they are united.

Rajkumar Khatri who had been famous for his roles in Dharmik films so far did a role of a murderer, contrary to his background. This too did not go too well with the audience. Today’s song is actually a combination of contrasting songs. There is a dance by a dance troupe just outside the temple. While the dancer is dancing, singing and luring the public, Dr.Ramesh comes there, singing a Bhajan. Slowly people get attracted to him. After some time all the public, including the dance troupers join Ramesh in his Bhajan and all enter the temple. Now, enjoy this Two- in- one offering…….

Arun ji,

I cent per cent agree with 11 points you mentioned in the article for the popularity of the Blog. I have yet to come across a blog exclusively covering the film and non-film music to get a mind boggling hit of over one crore with in a span of less than 10 years from the start of the Blog.

One crore hit to the Blog is a strong testimony from the readers. I am sure that in the coming years Blog would continue to get patronage in terms of visitors in geometrical proportion.

One crore visitors!! Amazing, this shows the popularity of the blog. I am lucky to be part of this blog, though my contribution is limited comments!!
Jailor was a film I saw in Bombay (as it was then!!) in an obscure theatre in the 70s. Don’t remember much of the film. The songs are ever fresh, though.This and the Lata number “Hum Payar Mein Jalne Valon Ko” stand out for catchy composing (I hope I am right). Thank you Arunji, for a an excellent post.

psseshadri ji,

Yes, of course, you are a team member. Everyone knows your name and after I posted our photos, they now connect the face with the name too !
Thanks for your appreciation comment.

This song is a precursor to the evergreen Nautanki given by Madan Mohan in late 60s – Zumaka Gira re . This song used to be played in SLBC’s program – Yeh Bhi Suniye.

It will be very kind if someone comments who is troupe owner and who is kali topi wala
