meri majhdhaar ke thhe tum hi khewaiyya

haaye jeevan ki naiya
kis ke sahaare beete baari umariya
shaadi ki raat rahi sooni sejariya
tum nahin aaye

Today’s song is from an obscure film- Sansaar Naiya-1939. This film was made jointly by Paramount and liberty pictures, Bombay. Actually, both these film companies made only and mainly Action/Stunt and Costume films. Since this was a ‘Social’ film, may be they had to support each others as they were presumably not used to handling such ‘offbeat’ film, from what they were accustomed to produce !

Though the film was classified as Social, the cast of the film contained predominantly seen stunt film actors only. They were Navinchandra, Sarojini, Noorjehan(sr), Basheer, Dhulia, Mirajkar, Mansoor, Kanta Kumari and others of the same ilk. There is also one name ” Puri” in the cast. He seems to be S.L.Puri, who was a singer also. In this film he has 4 solo and 3 duets with Sarojini. This could be the reason why he was in this action film.

For many readers, the name Sarojini may be an unknown name. This is exactly and what generally happens, when siblings are working in Films at the same time. Yes, Sarojini was the elder sister of the more famous actress Indurani. Both were stunt film actresses and worked in around 15+ films only. In reality, it was because of Sarojini that Indurani was dragged into films. Sarojini did more number of quality films than Indurani and also acted in more social films than Indurani. Her career period was longer than Indurani and her daughter Azra became a Heroine in Hindi films.

In spite of all these ‘better’ things, Sarojini’s younger sister Indurani hogged all the limelight. Articles were written on her and even an independent book was published on Indurani in USA. No one wrote on Sarojini exclusively. She appears in Indurani’s book and also is mentioned in Azra’s interview on beetehuedin.com

This type of fate is experienced by few more siblings in Hindi film industry. here are some examples, which I remember off hand…. Every movie buff knows the stingy Kanhiyalal, made famous by his roles of greedy merchants, sahukars (moneylenders) and a comic villain. He became more famous after film ” Mother India-57 “, though he did the same role in the original film ” Aurat”-40. But how many readers know that his elder brother was Sankata Prasad , an actor who was a regular in Sagar Movietone films, and later in more that 65 films ? Actually Sankata Prasad was responsible to bring his brother Kanhaiyalal (Chaturvedi) in the film world.

The eldest son of Jaddan bai, Akhtar Hussain, a very talented actor and director fell back on fame and publicity compared to younger brother Anwar Hussain. I am not comparing him with his sister Nargis.

Among the Travancore sisters, Raagini and Padmini shone here, but Lalitha did not shine in Hindi films. Nasir Khan lived all his life as brother of Dilip Kumar and had not many famous films to his credit. Some more such cases are, Laxmi Roy (younger sister of Geeta Roy), Laxmi Kumthekar (younger sister of Vatsala Kumthekar ), Compser Basant Prakash ( brother of Khemchand Prakash) and many more.

This is what I call as Luck. I agree that Talent is an individual gift and not a family or a traditional handout, but when all things are equal, one sibling lagging behind due to external factors, is purely a matter of Luck.

Actress Sarojini- real name Roshan Jehan and pet name Rani- was born in Delhi to Parents Sheikh Imamuddin and Munawwar Jehan, in 1920. Both sisters were put in a mission school of Daryaganj, Delhi. In those days, children were not allowed to see films, but Sarojini was interested in films and used to read film magazines, unknown to family. She was bold enough to send a letter to an actress of Saraswati Cinetone, Poona. In few days, she received a reply with that actress’ photo. The company asked her to send her photo. Sarojini managed to get a photo and send it across. Soon the company wrote to her that she will be appointed as an actress for Rs. 300 p.m.. Those days, this amount was a windfall.

When her father came to know all this he first gave a sound thrashing to her. Then he started thinking. Due to gambling and addiction, he had lost his business and they were in financial distress. He thought of earning some money by employing his daughters as actresses. He took Sarojini and a very reluctant Indurani to Poona. That time Sarojini was in English 8th std and Indu was in 9th std. At Poona, both got job as actresses at Rs. 300 each, as promised. Plus arrangements for their training in acting, singing and dancing was also arranged. Their father took Rs. 1000/- as advance, gave them some money and returned to Delhi. He sent their grandmother as their guardian.

Sarojini, being the elder, started working in the films immediately with film Deewani-1934. Then came Shri Satyanarayan-35. After closure of Saraswati cinetone, they came to Bombay and stayed in Hindu colony, Dadar. For some time they were engaged by Minerva Movietone for Rs. 450 pm, but when Ramniklal Shah offered them Rs. 500, they joined his company, Mohan pictures. While Indurani worked with Ramniklal, Sarojini worked with Nanubhai Vakil. Eventually, Indu married Ramnik Shah and Sarojini married Nanubhai Vakil in 1943.

Sarojini worked in 17 films in all- Deewani-34, Shri Satyanarayan-35, Bharat ki beti-35, Sundari-36, Son of Alladin -39, Sansar naiya-39, Madhu Bansari-39, Sanskaar-40, Jadui kangan-40, Hatimtai ki beti-40, Deepak Mahal-40, Taj mahal-41, Jadui bandhan-41, Farmaan-42, Naya Zamana-43, Son of Hatimtai-45 and her last film Cicus King-46. The sisters worked together in 3 films, Hatimtai ki beti and Jadui kangan of 1940 and Tajmahal-1941.

Sarojini had 2 daughters. The elder one Azra became a Heroine of many Hindi films. She married and retired. She stays in Bandra, Mumbai. The younger one Rehana, worked for an Airline, retired, widowed and stays in USA. Sarojini died in 1993. Her husband died in 1980.

Film Sansar Naiya was directed by Nanubhai vakil and MD was Damodar Sharma. All songs were written by Pt. Anuj (Sampatlal Shrivastav).

The Hero of this film was Navinchandra.

Navinchandraa’s full name was Navinchandra N. Joshi. He was born in 1907 at Jambusar and belonged to a Gujarati Bramhin family. When he was studying Intermidiate, his dream was to do M.Sc. and become a Professor. He was very much interested in body building and was a weight lifter.He was expert in Long jump, High jump and Malkhamb too, along with yogasanas. This made his body solid. Fair and handsome physique was noticed by one of the seniors in his Gym and he was taken to Bombay to meet produced director Indulal Yagnik. He offered him a Hero’s role in a stunt film. Thus Navin entered the film line with first silent stunt movie “The fall of Pawagarh”-1928. It was produced by Indulal Yagnik and directed by Nagendra Mujumdar. His first Heroine was Iris Crawford. He worked in more than 20 silent films and was famous as the Hero of Stunt and action films.

His first Talkie film was Kala Pahad-1933 in which his Heroine was Gauhar Karnataki ( sister of Amirbai karnataki and wife of Marathi stage artiste Bal Gandharv). The film was made by Sharda Movietone and directed by Baburao Apte (brother of actress Shanta Apte). Navinchandra acted in 33 talkie films, mostly stunt and action films. When the attraction of stunt films waned, he stopped getting roles, because stunt films were not being made now on roll. His last film was Jadui Putli-1946.

His age also caught up with him and he stopped getting films. He started doing small uncredited roles like an extra. The last information about him was when he was working as a Production manager in Imperial Film company, where now the studio was rented to other producers for shooting their films, by Irani’s heirs. One peculiar thing about Navinchandra was that except for the film’s required costume, he was always seen in Dhoti and Kurta only.

Today’s song is a rare song. The film had 11 songs (4 duets and 4 solos of Puri and 3 solos of Sarojini) The tune and style of the song is typical of the 30s period and quite a slow one, with long music prelude. With this song, film Sansar naiya-39 and singer Sarojini will make their Debut on the Blog.

Today’s song is from a film which was made by the Film Factory- Ranjit Movietone, in 1938. The name of the film is Billi aka The Cat. The film was directed by Jayant Desai and the music was by the in house Music Director-Gyan Dutt. All the songs and the screen play was by P L Santoshi.

This was the first decade of the Talkie films. Initially films were made on Mythology, folk tales and Parsi Theatre stories. Therefore there were repetitions of film subjects like Harishchandra or Shirin Farhad, among the different film makers. When this became too obvious, the film makers turned their attention to other sources like Hollywood films, famous novels and stories by well known authors.

In this race, the Calcutta film makers, notably New Theatres, was on ‘numero uno’ position. Bengal has a rich literary tradition. The works of famous writers like Bankim chnadra Chatterji, Saratchandra Chatterji, Rabindranath Tagore, A K Sen, Bijoy Muzumdar and many more have enriched Bangla literature. Films based on their stories were made in Calcutta. Bombay, of course, was not to lag behind and many films on National and International novels and Hollywood films were made here.

The major difference in these two film centres was that Bangla films were mostly true to the original novels and Bombay films were made keeping in view entertainment of the audience and so were made by adapting these famous literary works using cinematic liberties in plenty.

Most movies made in Bengal were based on famous stories, novels and dramas. These movies were made in Bangla (for eastern India markets) and Hindi language for all India market.

In Bombay, one of the the earliest films made on a famous author’s work was ” The Mill aka Mazdoor-1934, by Mohan Bhavnani’s Ajanta Cinetone. It was written by Munshi Premchand, and was based on the miserable and pathetic plight of the Mill workers of Bombay. Unfortunately, the powerful lobby of the rich Mill Owners of Bombay and Ahmedabad pressurised the Government of Bombay State to ban this film. Two years later and after many cuts, the dilapidated film was released as ” Ghareeb parwar aka Daya Ki Devi” in 1936, but it flopped miserably, dragging the makers- Ajanta Cinetone to bankruptcy.

In 1937, a film ” Khwabon ki Duniya” was made by the Prakash pictures’ duo of Vijay and Shankar Bhatt. It was based on the famous and popular novel ” The Invisible Man” by H.G.Wells, published in 1897. This Hindi film was a copy of the Hollywood film of the same name, made in 1933. The film was a novelty and did very good business. Later on, another film Mr. X – 1957 was also on the same theme.

Today’s film Billi-38 was based on the famous novel ” Damsel in distress” by P.G.Wodehouse. Wodehouse (15-10-1881 to 14-2-1975) was from England but stayed in US for most of his life. ( He is my favourite writer and I have many of his novels with me.) Wodehouse was famous for his British humour filled novels spun around characters like Jeeves, Bertie Wooster, Psmith, Blandings Castle and Lord Emsworth and Mr. Mulliner. His most famous novel Damsel in Distress was first serialised in ‘ The Saturday Evening Post’ in May and June 1919. It was published as a book on 4-10-1919 in UK and on 15-10-1919 in US. A stage play based on this novel, gave 234 performances in UK in 1928 and a Musical Comedy on it was made in 1937 in US.

‘Crime and Punishment’ by Fydor Dostoyevsky was the basis for film ‘ Phir subah hogi’-58. Many films were made on Tarzan novels by Edgar Rice Burrows and some thrillers were made on novels of Edgar Wallace. Hindi films based on famous novels/stories by Indian authors were many. An old example is Milan-46 on Tagore’s Nauka Doobi and recent examples are Chetan Bhagat’s 4 novels- Hello, Kai Poche, 2 states and 3 Idiots, as films of the same name. Some other films on Indian and western novels are Devdas, Parineeta, Omkara, Tere mere sapne, Guide, Aisha,Maqbool, junoon, Pinjar, Shatranj ke khiladi, Hamlet, Haider, Bandini, Balika Badhu, Dharamputra, Amar prem, Tamas and many more. the list would be too long, so suffice to mention these films.

There is nothing wrong in making films on famous novels, but when producers, directors, actors twist the story, add own stuff and make a ‘ Khichdi ‘ of the novel, think what the author must be feeling. ( In film Guddi, a writer called Deshpande, describes what the film makers do to the stories, to Prof. Gupta played by Utpal Dutt). A case in point is film Guide. It is on record how R K Narayan was disgusted with the Cinematic liberties the film makers took on his novel, and how he stopped attending shootings and vowed never to allow another producer to buy his stories !

Trouble comes when when the film is made on a western novel like ” Damsel in Distress “. First thing is to adapt the novel to Indian context and traditions. While doing this , most times, a mess is created. The story of this novel takes place in London and shifts to a village nearby later. in Indian version you have to show an Indian city ( Bombay) and a village. I read the review of this film in Film India- October 1938 issue. Baburao Patel- who rarely appreciated a film and was very partial to few directors and actors- tore apart the film. Every aspect of the film was criticised. However, despite his attempt, the film did very good film and was a success. It is shown in this film that after meeting just once, the hero and heroine, in their subsequent meeting, do not recognise each others and a Cat, gifted by hero to the heroine in their first meeting, helps in getting them together again.

The cast of the film had E. Billimorea, Sunita, Ishwarlal, Kantilal, Ila Devi, Mazhar, Ram Apte, Ghory and others. There were 11 songs in the film. today’s song is the first song to feature here. The song is sung by Ishwarlal and Ila Devi. I knew Ishwarlal, but Iladevi was a new name. Even after efforts no information was available to me about her. From the question-answer column of the magazine Film India, I learnt that Ila Devi’s original film name was Miss Ilmas. I do not know in which religion or community, this name is used.After making her debut in Hindi films in ‘ Nishan -E- Jung ‘-1937, she changed her name to Ila Devi and acted in 6 more films. Four films in 1938 (Billi,Bazigar, Rikshawala and Gorakh Aaya) and two films in 1939 (Adhuri Kahani and Kahan hai teri manzil). After this her name is not found in any films, when I checked.

This change of name, after using one name in a film, is not unique, though,this seems to be the First such instance. I know, off hand, at least two more such instances in Film industry. Actress Ameeta (Tumsa nahi dekha fame) had used name Jaijaiwanti in her first film Thokar-1953 ( her second film kaafila -52 was released first as Ameeta,however), but he changed it to her name Ameeta from next film onwards. ( her real name was Qamar Sultana). The second example is actress Zeb Rehman who was known first as Preetibala, then she changed her name to Zeb Rehman.

The male singer in this song is Ishwarlal. ISHWARLAL was born on 9-10-1911 at Ghanghaniya,Kathewar,Gujrat, as Ishwarlal Hariprasad Doshi.

He belonged to a Jain family. His father was in Police department at Kathiawar Agency. His father died when Ishwarlal was just 3 year old and mother raised him.

After Matriculation, he completed Teaching Diploma at the age of 16, but did not a job as he was underage.He came to Bombay, where his brother had some business, in 1927 to act in films. Ishwarlal was very handsome.

He got a job in Ranjit Studios.He started with silent films at a salary of Rs. 35 pm.His first Talkie film was Bhutiya Mahal-1932.Then came Char Chakram-32.He started acting and singing in films.Initially he sang only duets.meanwhile,with Jwalamukhi-36,he became Hero.he sang many songs in Ranjit films,but the records are not available.Those days,not all songs of the film were recoded for commercial purpose.
In Billi-38,he sang a duet with Ila Devi and Sunita devi and also in Aaj ka Hindustan.In Ummeed-41,he had a duet with Nurjahan. In Pyaas-41,he sang with S.Pradhan.

In 1942,first time he got solo songs to sing in Fariyaad. In Jabaan,under C.Ramchandra,he sang 7 songs.

Some of his films were-
Diwali,Dheeraj,Chandni,bhola shikar,nadira, sitamgarh, Veer babruwahan, Barrister’s wife, College kanya, Desh dasi, Keemti aansoo
dil ka daku,Jwalamukhi,Sajni,Dil farosh,Adhuri kahani,Thokar,Holi,pyar,Bansari Lalkar,Chirag,Us paar,
He worked in Ranjit for 13 years. Then he worked with Prafull pictures, Sun art, Wadia, Hind pictures and Atre Pictures also.

In 1945,he was the hero of Nurjehan in Badi Maa,but he had no songs, infact his last songs were in Us Paar-1944. His singing stopped completely when Rafi gave him playback in film Sharbati Aankhen-45.

Then he did character roles in Subhadra,Mahasati tulsi vrinda,Sanskar,Naulakha haar,Khuda ka banda etc.

He acted in 86 films. He also directed 11 films. He sang 36 songs in 14 films. His last film released was was kahani kismet ki-73
He was married in 1931 to a loyal wife kamalabai. They had no issues. Due to excessive smoking he contracted lung diseases and died on 22-1-1969 in Bombay.

With this song, the film Billi aka The Cat-38 and the singer Ila Devi make their Debut on this Blog.

Discussion on economics-3
——————————————————————–
Today is 26 january 2019, a red letter day in the history of Modern India. We all know that India gained independence on 15 august 1947, but what kind of nation we were going to be was not yet decided on that day. It took another two years and five months (896 days to be precise) for the nation to define itself as a Republic where every citizen, irrespective of his background was assured of equality.

Many nations have been formed over the centuries, but it was for a first time that a newly independent nation declared that all its citizens were going to have equal rights. If one looks at the history of USA, we find that that USA was formed on 4 july 1776, but equal rights for all citizens of USA were given much later. In early years of USA, only white males were allowed to vote. Blacks males were allowed to vote more than 100 years later. Females of all races were allowed to vote only from 1920. Seen that way, the constitution of India was, in many way a remarkable achievement for a newly independent nation, a nation so vast in area and population that many “experts” considered int ungovernable and one that was liable to break into pieces.

The constitution of India has served as a very powerful glue to hold this vast nation together. With passage of time, this glue has become more powerful than fevicol. 🙂

A major reason why the country became united and stayed united was the inclusive nature of the constitution where everyone was given six fundamental rights namely:-

Right to equality.
Cultural and Educational Rights.
Right to freedom.
Right against exploitation.
Right to freedom of religion, and.
Right to constitutional remedies.

The above fundamental rights is the magic glue that has kept the nation united. The above rights are exhaustive and all encompassing. We need not look very far. We only only have to look around our neighbourhood to find that many of these rights are not available to citizens in our neighboring countries.

The above fundamental rights basically gives respect and dignity and opportunities to all citizens. Many of these are rights that were not available to our forefathers.

India was an underdeveloped nation at the time of independence. Lots and lots of industrial activities were started which involved creating steel plants, dams, educational institutions, research centers etc. These were set up at places that were till then remote locations. People from all over the country got employment in these newly opened installations.

Movement of these people was largely by trains. So these trains were also a big unifier for the nation.

When people from various backgrounds met and interacted with each other, they got to learn about the language and culture of the place they had moved to.

While interacting with each other, it turned out that they could find some topics of mutual interest. One was Hindi movies and music, and other was Cricket. Hindi movies and music, and also cricket have been great unifiers for Indians.

With so many powerful glues to hold us together, and with gradual prosperity of the nation, Indians of today are far more proud and upbeat about India than they were a few generations ago. I find that I have personally become a nationalist (not a jingoist) and I am quite upbeat about the future of the country.

Here are some of the great things that are happening in India and are going to happen in future:-

1. GDP-When India became independent, it was one of the poorest nations on the face of the earth. This state of affairs continues till 1991, when the economic policy of the nation was finally given a thorough overhaul and the economy was liberalised. In a matter of a little over two decades, India gatecrashed into the list of top 10 economies of the world. Today, India is a member of G-20 group of nations which is a group of top 20 economies in the world. In reality, India should be a member of G-8 as well, seeing that Indian economy is very much in top 8 in the world. When the new figures of GDP are released a few months later, India would find itself as the fifth largest economy in the world, displacing our erstwhile master the Great Britain, who will slip to seventh position behin France. And India will leave these countries behind permanently. New target for India would be to overtake Germany and Japan, and that would be achieved in another one decade, may be less.

2. Steel is to an economy what the skeleton is to a body. An economy cannot be built without steel. There was a time, till 1907, when no steel was produced in India. It was in 1907 that the first steel factory was built by Jamshedji Tata in a place that is now called Jamshedpur. When Tata gave a proposal in 1907 to GIP Railways that they wanted to supply rail for Railway, the then Commissioner of Railway Safety, GIP Railway, Sir Frederick Upcott remarked that he would eat each pound of Railway if this upstart was able to produce that. Much later, British Steel, a steel company was taken over by a Dutch company to form Corus steel, and this Corus Steel was bought by Tata steel in 2007, exactly 100 years after the arrogant remark of a British. Today, India is world’s second largest steel producer behind China, and Britain is no where. Two Indian owned companies (Arcelor Mittal and Tata) are world’s number one and number three steel making companies in order of size of outturn of steel.

3, Soft power-India is a country that produced the largest number of movies in the world. They have fair share of film market in the world but not as much as it could be. But now it seems that India has started to produce movies that are truly world class and they are being appreciated for that. Example- Bahubali pt 2, Dangal.

4. Power of Indian market– Indian market is worth more than $1 trillion and it will become a $4 trillions market within a few years. With reforms such as GST, this is one single market that no one in the world can ignore. So India and its consumers can command high quality products at competitive prices. For example, Chinese companies which have no clue what Cricket and Kabaddi are, are the title sponsors of Indian Premier League and Professional Kabaddi League because they want to enter Indian market riding on the popularity of games that Indians love.

Some naysayers among us (there are quite a few) may tell us that we are nowhere in the world on per capita basis. That is true, but compared to where we were one decade back, India has made tremendous progress.

5. GDP per capita– The GDP per capita today works up to $2000 which is no big deal seeing that the GDP per capita in advanced economies are 20 times or more. Indeed that is the case, but that is because keeping Indians Gareeb has been a stated policy of some parties in India. That is why Indian per capita income remained under $ 400 till two decade ago and under $ 1000 till one decade ago . So India was in the list of Low Income countries till one decade ago. Thanks to opeing up of economy in 1991, the per capita income had grown up five times in last two decades, while it had doubled in last one decade. Now India is in Low Middle Income Group ($ 1025 to $ 4035 per capita group). Next target is graduating to Middle Income group ( $ 4035 to $12475 per capita) group.

6. Future growth of economy– Per capita income above $ 12475 makes a country a high income group country. So Indian per capita income needs to grow six times before India can become a high income country. That can be achieved if Indian resources- both natural as well as human, are upgraded in a big way. In simple terms, it means upgrading the infrastructure and reforming rules, taking unpopular and non populist decisions in the process if required. If India continues to grow at the existing annual growth rate of 7 % per annum then it will take between 25 to thirty years for India to become a high income country. If the growth rate is higher, then the target can be met in a shorter duration. For either case, a lot of input is required.

7. Quality related indices-A country that aspires to grow and join the list of advanced nations cannot do so unless they improve their quality. There are certain quality related indices that give an idea where a country stands. Some of these quality indices are:-
(i)Global Innovation index-India is ranked 57th in 2018- a steady improvement from its 81st position in 2015)
(ii)Global competitive index-India is ranked 58th in WEF’s global competitiveness index of 2018.
(iiiEase of doing business-India is in 77th position in latest ranking, it is a vast improvement from its rankings of 100 and 130 in the preceding years.
(iv)QS rating of top universities- IIT Bombay, the highest ranked Indian university has a world ranking of 162. In Asia, it is 34th, which shows that top Indian universities still need to improve a lot to catch up with advanced Asian economies viz Japan, China, South Kore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapor.e
(v)Credit rating- Though not as high as advanced economies, Indian credit rating is good enough to be investment grade, and so Indian business organisations are able to raise loan from foreign financial organisations.

8. India aims to be a $5 Trillions economy by 2023. 3 Trillions will come from service sector, one trillion from agriculture sector and one trillion from manufacturing sector. As far as manufacturing sector is concerned, I can visualise India becoming a big and respected exporter of Engineering goods.

All of the above are possible if Indians value their constitution and make the most of the provisions provided in the constitution. I am quite positive and bullish about the future prospects of India.

On this occasion, here is a rare song from “Subhash Chandra”(1978). ‘This movie was directed by Piyush Bose for A K B Films, Calcutta. The movie had Ashish Ghosh, Amar Dutt, Samar Kumar, Ajit Prakash, N.Vishwanathan, Lamsden, Bown, Smith, Reba Devi, Rama Das ec in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Subhash Chandra”(1978) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is the lyricist. Music is composed by Aparesh Lahiri.

I take this opportunity to wish a happy republic day to all Indians wherever they are. I have no doubt that this republic day will mark the beginning of some great achievements and accomplishments for india in many fields.

Today’s song is from film ‘Bhedi Bangla’ (1949). This film was produced by Anand Subramanyam, under the banner of Jagriti films, owned by Master Bhagwan. The story, dialogues and songs were by Ehsaan Rizvi and music was by P Ramakant. This was a name used by C Ramchandra, because he was under contract with Filmistan and could not give music in his own name. It started with Raja Nene’s film Shadi Se Pehle’ in 1947, in which he first used his assistant’s name Paingankar (the joint MD was Karnad). His name was Ramakant Paingankar and was assisting Chitalkar for a long time. Later, for Bhagwan’s films like ‘Bhedi Bangla’, ‘Bhole Bhale’ (1949), ‘Babuji’ (1950), and ‘Bakshish’ (1950) also, Chitalkar used the pseudo name P Ramakant as MD (information from Marathi Chitrapat Sangeetkar Kosh by Madhu Potdar).

Master Bhagwan was a very hard working person. In the real sense, he brought in the wave of stunt films in the late 40s. After the films of Master Vithal and Fearless Nadia waned in their popularity by 1944-45, it was Master Bhagwan, who established his own Production house – Jagriti Films, and produced several stunt films. He had a set of actors and actresses, which included Baburao Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Azeembhai, Shanta Patel, Chanchal, Leela Gupte, Usha Shukla and Vitha Lokare.

The storyline for most of his films was also fixed. Two young vagabonds – Baburao Pehelwan and Bhagwan, come to Bombay in search of employment. One Sethji (Azeembhai) appoints them to protect him from the local criminal (Vasantrao Pehelwan). Sethji has a good looking daughter (one of the stock Heroines), who has a maid (another girl from the stock). Baburao loves Seth ji’s daughter and Bhagwan loves the maid. After lot many stunts and fighting scenes, the end would be happy. The same story with changed names and other minor changes was used in almost all his films like ‘Badla’, ‘Bahadur’, ‘Jalan’, ‘Madadgaar’, ‘Dosti’, ‘Shake Hand’, ‘Matlabi’, ‘Bach Ke Rehna’, ‘Bhole Bhale’, ‘Jeete Raho’ or such other films. The audience did not mind . They were happy with the stunts. (Did Nasir Hussain get inspiration from Bhagwan in this matter ?)

Master Bhagwan entered the film world with silent film ‘Bewafa Ashiq’ (1930). His first talkie film was ‘Himmat-e-Marda’ (1934). Initially, like all other heroes, even Bhagwan used to sing his own songs. Once he had gone to Columbia company for rehearsal and recording a song. While entering, he saw a young man sitting under a tree and writing something. After rehearsal, he saw that fellow again and even after recording the man was still writing something. Bhagwan went to him and asked with curiosity what was he writing. The man answered, I am writing songs and stories. He came to know that his name was Ehsaan Rizvi and that he too lives in Dadar like Bhagwan. He took Rizvi’s address and left.

In 1938, Bhagwan got his first film as a director- ‘Bahadur Kisaan’ (1938). He called Ehsan Rizvi and gave him the job of writing the story, dialogues and songs. From that day Ehsaan Rizvi became a part of his team. He wrote for at least 25 films of Bhagwan’s. Born in 1914, Rizvi wrote lyrics for 60 films, but most of them were B or C grade films. He however wrote dialogues and screenplay for some well known films like ‘Do Ustad’ (1959), ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960), ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ (1964), ‘Aan Milo Sajna’ (1971), ‘Gopichand Jasoos’ (1982) etc. He had shared the Filmfare award for dialogues of ‘Mughal e Azam’, with 3 other writers. He died on 16-1-1983.

Bhagwan and CR got introduced when Bhagwan was directing film ‘Bahadur Kisaan’ for producer Chandrarao Kadam. The MD was Meer Saheb and CR was his assistant. Of course, that time he was just Ram Chitalkar. Their friendship lasted for many more years. For film ‘Bahadur Kisaan’, the background music was composed by Naushad, CR and Sajjad Hussain. Naushad played piano, CR played organ and Sajjad played mandolin. Another person Prem, played clarinet. They were all struggling artistes then.

In 1942 Bhagwan directed ‘Sukhi Jeevan’, for which CR was the MD for the first time. Bhagwan and the producer Harishchandra Rao Kadam had some dispute on payments. Bhagwan decided to start his own production company and he started Jagriti Pictures. His first film was ‘Badla’ (1943). For this film he took 80,000 from a financier, with a condition of repaying one lakh rupees after the film is released. After this film Bhagwan churned out film after film in the stunt genre. In 1949, Bhagwan made film ‘Bhedi Bangla’, which was the first of its kind – a sort of horror cum mystery film. The film was a hit film. With this film Bhagwan had reached the zenith of his stunt films.

In this film, there were several scenes, where Bhagwan sees a ghost and his eyes widen and breath is held up. Due to the strain on the eyes, they became red and swollen and after some time, suddenly, he could not see anything. He thought that he has become blind. He shouted for his brother Shanker. Bhagwan was immediately taken to a hospital in Girgaon. The doctor examined him,gave him an injection and some tablets. That night he slept like a dead man, but after getting up on next day noon, he was happy that his eyesight was normal now.

Bhagwan had noticed that whenever his film’s trial show was arranged, a handsome young man would be present there. When he saw this man at the trial show of ‘Bhedi Bangla’ again, he inquired as to who he was. The young man told him that his name was Raj Kapoor and he was son of the great Prithviraj Kapoor. Bhagwan called him and asked him why he came. Raj kapoor said, “Sir, I like your stunt films. I am your fan. In my films, I copy your dance style. Why don’t you make a social film ?”. Few days later, even CR also pushed him hard to enter the social film genre now, so that CR can openly lend his name to Bhagwan’s films as MD and his film will get the benefit of his fame. Thereafter Bhagwan started thinking about it seriously and then ‘Albela’ happened. The rest is history, as they say! The story of Albela making, some other time. . .

The story of film Bhedi Bangla was,

Shyam (Baburao Pehelwan) and Manglu (Bhagwan) are friends and good for nothing. They come to Bombay to look for easy money. They pretend to be lame and blind and start begging. However, after few days, their secret is out and and the enraged public of Bombay gives them a sound thrashing. An onlooker calls them and asks if they would do a good job, instead of this nonsense. The agree and they are appointed as watchmen for a deserted haveli. It is owned by a Sethani (Tarabai – elder sister of Sitara Devi and mother of dancer Gopi Krishna). Her daughter is beautiful Prema (Leela Gupte). There is an estate manager also (Azeembhai – who later became a famous fight master in Hindi films), who does not like their coming there.

One day the friends find the dead body of the haveli’s maali (gardener) (Inamdar) in the premises of the haveli. The estate manager complains to the police. Police start investigations. Maali had a good looking daughter – Champa (Usha Shukla). While Manglu tries to take care of her, the estate manager tells police that he suspects this duo of murdering the maali. In absence of any proof, police do not arrest them but keep an eye on them.

Suddenly, the friends start seeing ghosts in the haveli. First few days, they are scared, but realise that this is all bogus and they try to reach the bottom of the matter. Finally, they unearth a plan of the estate manager to scare everybody, so that no one will remain there and he can conduct his gold smuggling business from there. He only has murdered the maali. After solid stunts and fighting scenes, the culprits are arrested and Shyam and Prema and Manglu and Champa are united. (658).

The film had 8 songs. Most songs are available on You Tube. 4 songs are already discussed here. Today’s song is the 5th song. It is a duet of Lata and Chitalkar. All in all, ‘Bhedi Bangla’ aka ‘The House of Mystery’ was a ‘paisa vasool‘ entertainment.

Blog Day : 3841 Post No. : 14853

Today (23 january 2019) is the birth anniversary of Subhash Chandra Bose, one of the most admired freedom fighters of India.

One year ago, I had written a detailed writeup about his escape from his house arrest. That writeup was accompanied by the song Jodi tor daak..tanha raahi apni raah chalta jaayegaa.

Writing that article was quite a emotional roller coaster ride for me, because I tried to imagine all the meticulous planning of that escape, including the successful execution of the plan.

In the process, I watched snippets of the movie “Bose The forgotten Hero”(2004) which contains this song.

Lyrics of that song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. One year later, he sent the lyrics of another song from the movie to be posted on this occasion with a request of a writeup by me because I have seen the movie. No, I have not seen the movie. I have only seen parts of it, because I cannot bear to see the full movie even though I know that it is a movie and the scenes depicted in the movie happened over seven decades ago.

So, my writeup is not based on my watching the movie, rather it is based on my impressions on Subhash Chandra Bose.

It seems to me, and many people would agree that his contributions towards the independence movement has been vastly underrated and attempts have been made to consign his contribution to just a few lines. We have been fed the history that non violent agitations led by Mahatma Gandhi won us our freedom.

When I try to think about it now, it does not seem to add up. If non violent agitations gave us freedom, then what explains the violence that took place during the partition ? Why the proponents of these non violence agitations agreed to the participation of Indian armymen in the second world war and also the first world war before that ? If people in India really followed non violence, then what explains the Indo Pak wars that took place and the terror attacks that are taking place from across the border.

When one tries to look at the reasons for the independence of India, it appears that the reason why India got independence was not Non violent agitations but it was mainly due to the precarious economical situation of Britain.

Britain which used to be the strongest economy in the world till the 18th century found itself being overtaken by USA and Germany by the turn of 19th century. USA was able to cash in because it pioneered new indstries, viz automobiles, motorbikes and aircrafts and became the leading manufacturer of these new technology items. The first world war and later the second world war devastated British economy. After the second world war ended Britain had lost much of its absolute wealth. Its trade reduced to just one third vis a vis its pre war trade. Dollar had become the preferred currency and Britain had shortage of dollars to pay off its wartime debts. As an emergency measure, Britain began to hive off its overseas assets. USA extracted a heavy price from Britain for getting involved in the second world war. Britain had to take a loan of $ 4.33 billions from USA. Winter of 1946-47 broke the back of British economy, with cutrailed economic production and shortage of coal. The situation reeached its worst in August 1947 !

Is it a coincidence that India got its independence in August 1947 ! With the benefit of all the information contained in the above para, it appears that Britain were in no position to be able to hold on to India any longer. Even if there were no agitations, violent or otherwise, Britain woould have left India sooner or later.

It appears to me that holding on to the Indian empire was becoming more and more prohibitively expensive for Britain. It would seem to me that “Non violent” agitations were not the only thing Britain had to worry. They also had to worry about the real possibility of disenchantment in the natives who manned Indian Army. The contribution of Subhash Chandra Bose’s Azad Hind Fauz, which actually participated in world war II cannot be underestimated.

The end of the war saw a large number of the troops of Azad Hind Fauz repatriated to India where some faced trials for treason at Red Fort in Delhi. Instead of acting as a deterrent,as hoped by the British, these trials became a galvanising point in the Indian Independence movement. The Bombay mutiny in the Royal Indian Navy and other mutinies in 1946 are thought to have been caused by the nationalist feelings that were caused by the INA trials. Many historians believe that these events played a crucial role in hastening the end of British rule in India.

After independence, Gandhian freedom fighters were given the status of freedom fighters but Azad Hind Fauz members were denied this privilege. Nevertheless, the Azad Hind Fauz remains a popular and passionate topic in Indian culture and politics.

India became politically independent on 15 august 1947. It wold take decades and decades of slog with lots of troubles enroute, before Indian fortunes would begin to look up and they would shrug off the tag of a begging bowl nation and subsequently a nation considered the fastest growing major nation in the world. I would cover this vast topic in another writeup on the occasion of Republic day, which falls three day later.

For now, let us listen to this song of hope. The hopes of securing independence. The hopes of living happily ever after. The song is a chorus song. Jawed Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Rahman.

Song-Ham Dilli Dilli jaayenge (Bose-The Forgotten Hero)(2004) Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-A R Rahman

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Ham Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai
Ab fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai

Subhash kaa ye kehna kehna hai
Chalo Dilli chal ke rehna hai
Ham Dilii Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge

Ham goli kha ke jhoomenge
Maut ko badhh ke chumenge
Matawaale ban aazaadi ke
Hum dariya jungle ghoomenge
Goli kha ke jhoomenge
Maut ko badhh ke choomenge
Matawaale ban aazaadi ke
Ham dariya jungle ghumenge
Subhash hamaara haawi hai
Ghulaami ke taalon ki chaabhi hai
Phir kaisa khatraa baaki hai
Khuda bhi hamaara saathi hai
Ham Dilii Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge

Fauji ban ke jaayenge
Aur Dilii ko sajaayenge
Fauji ban ke jaayenge
Dilii ko sajaayenge
Zaalim firangi qaum kaa
Ham naam-o-nishaan mitaayenge
Ham Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Dilli Dilli jaayenge
Ham apna Hind banaayenge
Fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai
Ab fauji ban ke rehna hai
Dukh dard museebat sahna hai
Subhash kaa ye kehna kehna hai
Chalo Dilli chal ke rehna hai

हम दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
फौजी बन के रहना है
दुःख दर्द मुसीबत सहना है
अब फौजी बन के रहना है
दुःख दर्द मुसीबत सहना है

सुभाष का ये कहना कहना है
चलो दिल्ली चल के रहना है
हम दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे

हम गोली खा के झूमेंगे
मौत को बढ़ के चूमेंगे
मतवाले बन आज़ादी के
हम दरिया जंगल घूमेंगे
गोली खा के झूमेंगे
मौत को बढ़ के चूमेंगे
मतवाले बन आज़ादी के
हम दरिया जंगल घूमेंगे
सुभाष हमारा हावी है
ग़ुलामी के तालों कि चाभी है
फिर कैसा ख़तरा बाकी है
खुदा भी हमारा साथी है

हम दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे

फौजी बन के जायेंगे
और दिल्ली को सजायेंगे
फौजी बन के जायेंगे
दिल्ली को सजायेंगे
ज़ालिम फिरंगी कौम का
हम नाम-ओ-निशान मिटायेंगे

हम दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
दिल्ली दिल्ली जायेंगे
हम अपना हिन्द बनायेंगे
फौजी बन के रहना है
दुःख दर्द मुसीबत सहना है
अब फौजी बन के रहना है
दुःख दर्द मुसीबत सहना है

सुभाष का ये कहना कहना है
चलो दिल्ली चल के रहना है

“Dhun”(1953) was directed by M Kumar for Silver Productions, Bombay. The movie had Raj Kapoor and Nargis in lead roles with Motilal, Pramila, Kamal Mehra, M Kumar, Cuckoo etc also there in the movie.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Seven songs have been discussed in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Dhun”(1953). This song is in fact a two part song. Part I is sung by Rafi, Batra, Baabul and chorus. Part II, which is an extension of the same song, is sung by Rafi, Madan Mohan, Baabul and chorus.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this llong light hearted song. Music is composed by Madan Moahn.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Since this is a two part song, so with this song, now nine songs from the movie have been covered. HFGK mentions two more songs- “hansa hai mukpe zamaana” and “is duniya mein ham aa nikle”. Thouh the lyricist for these two songs is mentioned in HFGK 9Kaif irfani), no other fdetails are known for these songs. Record numbers are not mentioned so may be records of these songs were not mentioned.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on these remaining two songs that do not seem to be available as of now.

PS-This writeup replaces another song from the movie, namely “nindiya na aaye tum bin” which was already covered in the blog in the past.

Another special fact about this song is that this is the fourth song in the blog that has the voice on Madan Mohan as a singer. Madan Mohan had lent his voce in four songs in Hindi movies. with this song, now all these songs have been covered in the blog.

Audio (Both Parts)
