Today’s song is from the 1946 film ‘Alibaba’.

The story of ‘Alibaba And The 40 Thieves‘ has been entertaining the masses of the world since the 18th century. It is a part of the ‘ Arabian Nights’ stories. These stories have been the basis of films in almost every language in every country of the world, including China. But for a few large scale films, most such films fall under stunt / action / costume films or in short C grade films.

Most of us like to watch films, be it on a TV, in a cinema hall, or through DVD. Some like old films and some like new films. Did you ever see films like, ‘Khooni Khanjar’, ‘Daghabaaz Doctor’, ‘Shaitaan Ka Paash’, ‘Chaar Chakram’, ‘Daaku Rani Talwaarwaali’, ‘Jaadu Ka Danda’, ‘Zinda Laash’, ‘Revolver Rani’, ‘Sindbad-Alibaba-Alladin’, ‘Flying Man’, ‘Fighter Sheela’, ‘Khooni Darinda’, ‘Tarzan Aur Jadugar’, ‘Tarzan Aur Jaadui Chiraag’, ‘Golden Gang’, ‘Murde Ki Jaan Khatre Mein’, or ‘Jaadui Putli’ ? I bet you may not have even heard most of these movie names. These are all stunt films or in other words ‘C’ grade films.

In India I really wonder how the classification or grading of films is done, or who is the person or the body authorised to do it. Because Censor Certificates do not label A B or C grades at all. Then how does this happen ?

My guess is that films are graded on two counts – one, the cost of production or budget and the class of stars in it and two, the class of people for whom the film is made or directed, like the rich, middle and the poor class. Whatever the basis, there is a very thin line between A and B grade films, while there is a big gulf between these two and the C grade films.

Stunt films, costume dramas, fantasy films and purely religious films are normally treated as C grade films. These film do not carry any prestige, the actors working in them are exclusive to C grade films, the production values and the budget is quite low and most important, they are ALWAYS shown in theatres situated in older parts of the town, single screens, or only for morning shows or in theatres generally frequented by lower strata of society.

In India, this is the fate of C grade films. Actually these films have everything that A and B grade films have, like story, songs, dances, fights etc., but still,the treatment given to handling of the story etc. in the films is very poor or lacking in expertise. This is a different world altogether. The set of actors is fixed, many times the composers are unheard of or they are known composers now in bad shape, the directors are typical and the production houses are exclusive to churn out such films.

It is, nevertheless, a fact that many well known and famous actors and actresses of the 40s and 50s evolved from the stunt films of yore. Examples are Jairaj and Master Bhagwan. Can you believe that this roly-poly Bhagwan Dada was a great body-builder when he started his career in stunt films in the late 1920s and 1930s ? Lalita Pawar (Amboo), Madhuri, Rampyari, Miss Moti, Sabita Devi and Sulochna (Ruby Myers) are some female examples who graduated to social films via stunt films.

Sometimes gems are found in these C grade films. Remember the famous qawwaali- Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husnwaalon Ne– which had the honour of becoming the prestigious 5000th song in this Blog ? This was from a C grade film from 1958 – ‘Al Hilal’.

In my younger days I was fond of stunt films and used to travel to theatres in old city of Hyderabad, to watch films featuring Kamran (father of famous choreographer and Director Farah Khan and director, comedian, anchor Sajid Khan), Naazi, Bhagwan and many such actors. ‘Adventures Of Captain Marvel’ (1941) and ‘Trip To Moon’ (1902) were my favourites from Hollywood’s Republic serial productions.
[Ed Note: In the early part of the twentieth century, Republic Studios was one of the main production houses in Hollywood, along with Universal, Columbia and Mascot etc. Serial productions were two reel short films, that were produced as a series – either as a comic serial (e.g. ‘The Three Stooges’ etc.) or as an action serial (e.g. ‘The Adventures Of Fu Manchu’ and ‘Commando Cody: Sky Marshals Of The Universe’ etc.)]

Today’s song under discussion is from a C grade film, ‘Alibaba’ made in 1946. Not much information is available on this film. Such C grade films generally go unnoticed. We only know that this film was made by Mohan Pictures of Ramniklal Shah (husband of actress Indurani), who was well known for making such low budget stunt films. The director of this film was his Co- Brother (साडू)- Nanubhai Vakil (husband of actress of Sarojini who was sister of Indurani and mother of actress Azra). The music was by Damodar Sharma and Ram Gopal. In the cast, only 3 names are mentioned in HFGK – namely Shanta Patel, Prakash and NA Ansari.

Recently, we learnt about a stunt film Hero-Shankar Rao Vazare. Today we will know more about another stunt actor Prakash. During the decade of 1940s, he performed in many action and stunt films.

The real name of actor Prakash was Hashmat Ullah Khan. He was born in 1914 at Gwalior, where his father was a businessman. The family was originally a Punjabi Muslim family. Hashmat studied somehow up to inter arts and left the college. He was an overactive child, interested in acting in films. Hashmat ran away to Bombay and worked in Sagar Movietone. He got a small uncredited role in film ‘Village Girl’ (1936). Not satisfied with this, he travelled to Calcutta.

In Calcutta, Hashmat worked in 3 films – Taqdeer Ka Teer’ aka ‘Prem Lakshya’ (1936), ‘Bandit Of The Air’ aka ‘Hawai Daaku’ (1936) (the first film of KN Singh as a hero; Mazhar Khan was the villain here) and ‘Dangerous Woman’ aka ‘Khatarnak Aurat’ (1938). He also got a miniscule role in New Theatre’s film ‘Abhaagin’ (1938).  Not getting what he aspired, Hashmat shifted to Delhi and worked in All India Radio as a singer. True to his nature within two years he left this job and landed in Bombay again.

It is reported that he was very arrogant, untrustworthy and a cheat of first rate; also seemingly that he was quarrelsome, a liar and short tempered. Perhaps his experiences taught him a lesson and he decided to change himself and concentrate on work seriously. This did good to him in his life. In his second stint in Bombay, first he worked in ‘Gharib Ki Ladki’ (1940), but the film got delayed and was released in 1941 only. Meanwhile he did ‘Rani Saheba’ (1940) and ‘Pyaar’ (1940) also. This time his career took a good turn. Till film ‘Gharib Ki Ladki’, he used his name Hashmat for credits, but after that he took a new name Prakash and used it till the end of his career.

A changed actor Prakash became acceptable to the industry and more assignments came his way. In all Prakash did 5 films as Hashmat and 38 films as Prakash. However, he got only action, stunt and C grade films. Once director WZ Ahmed met him and Prakash went to Shalimar Pictures in Poona to do 3 films for them, namely ‘Ek Raat’, ‘Prem Sangeet’ and ‘Mann Ki Jeet’. He was also a favourite of Master Bhagwan and appeared in many of his stunt films. The year 1946 proved to be the best year for Prakash, because he did 14 films in 1946.

After Partition he migrated to Pakistan and did few films there. He came back to India and did 3 films in the 1960s. His last film was ‘Suhaag Raat’ (1968). There is no information about him after that. May be he went back to Pakistan or died, we do not know.

The composer of today’s song – Damodar Sharma, was a name attached to stunt films of Paramount, Liberty, Ramnik Productions, Mohan Pictures etc. Starting in 1934, Damodar Sharma gave music to 41 films till 1948. After that he stopped getting films and for survival, he became assistant to composer AR Qureshi (29-4-1919 to 3-2-2000) till 1964.

Today’s song tune has been inspired (read copied) by the famous all women qawwaali – “Aahen Na Bhari, Shiqwe Na Kiye” from the film ‘Zeenat’ (1945). The tune is very similar. For this reason only this song is very melodious and worth listening to. This song is very rare.

With this post, the 1946 film ‘Alibaba’ makes its debut on our blog today.

par kuchh na zabaan se kaam liya
hum apni kahaani bhool gaye
jab tera kisi ne naam liya
hum apni kahaani bhool gaye
jab tera kisi ne naam liya
aansoo na girey naale na kiye
ghabra ke kaleja thaam liya

dil ke dukhde

toofaan ka daaman thaam liya
kashti ka sahaara jaane de
toofaan ka daaman thaam liya
aansoo na girey naale na kiye
ghabra ke kaleja thaam liya
ghabra ke kaleja thaam liya
ghabra ke kaleja thaam liya

आँसू ना गिरे नाले ना किए
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
आँसू ना गिरे नाले ना किए
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया

आँसू ना गिरे
नाले ना किए
आँसू ना गिरे नाले ना किए
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
तूफान सा उठता था दिल में॰॰ऐ॰॰ऐ॰॰ऐ
आss आss आsssss
आss आss आss
तूफान सा उठता था दिल में
पर कुछ ना ज़ुबान से काम लिया
पर कुछ ना ज़ुबान से हाँ हाँ
पर कुछ ना ज़ुबान से काम लिया
हम अपनी कहानी भूल गए
जब तेरा किसी ने नाम लिया
हम अपनी कहानी भूल गए
जब तेरा किसी ने नाम लिया
आँसू ना गिरे नाले ना किए
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया

दिल के टुकड़े
ग़म के किस्से॰॰ऐ॰॰ऐ॰॰ऐ
आss आss आsssss
आss आss आss
दिल के टुकड़े ग़म के किस्से
या हम समझें या वो समझें
या हम समझें या आं हाँ
या हम समझें या वो समझें॰॰ऐ॰॰ऐ॰॰ऐ
आss आss आsssss
आss आss आss
मजबूर ए मोहब्बत के दर से
अलफाज से हम आज़ाद हुये
अलफाज से हम हाँ हाँ
अलफाज से हम आज़ाद हुये
नज़रों ने सुनाये अफसाने
आँखों से ज़ुबान का काम लिया
नज़रों ने सुनाये अफसाने
आँखों से ज़ुबान का काम लिया
आँसू ना गिरे नाले ना किए
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया

अब देखने से क्या होता है
देखा करे दुनिया साहिल से
आss आss आsssss
आss आss आss
तूफान चढ़े अब या उतरे
जो डूबने वाले थे डूबे
जो डूबने वाले हाँ हाँ
जो डूबने वाले हो हो
जो डूबने वाले थे डूबे
कश्ती का सहारा जाने दे
तूफान का दामन थाम लिया
कश्ती का सहारा जाने दे
तूफान का दामन थाम लिया
आँसू ना गिरे नाले ना किए
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया
घबरा के कलेजा थाम लिया

Thanks for sharing the full song. The main voices sound quite similar to Miss Kalyani and Amirbai Karnataki.

Shalin ji,
Thanks for your comment.
you are one of the few, who upload full songs on UT.
Thanks.

Shalin ji,
I was about to identify the voice of Kalyani Bai in the song but was not sure about the other voice which you have identified as that of Amirbai Karnataki.

Check out the part from 2:14-2:20. That sounds very much like Amirbai Karnataki to me. What do you think?

Yes, Amirbai Karnataki in high pitched voice. In fact, the voice in the starting verse as well as those at 2:06 to 2:14 sounds like the same voice.

is this movie’s director “Nanubhai Vakil” ?
CAST : Prakash, N. A. Ansari, Shanta Patel.
MUSIC : Ram Gopal, Damodar Sharma.
LYRICS : UN-KNOWN

Deepakp ji,
Yes.
All the details mentioned by you are written in the write up already.
Please see
-AD

Song reminds me ‘ Jab raat hai aist matawali ,phir subha ka alam kya hoga’ , Mughal E Aazam
:))

Very interesting song majorly inspired by Aahen Na Bhareen Shikwe Na Kiye from Zeenat which was a super duper hit just the previous year. Hearing it after a long time.
